PLEASE READ THE INVEST SAFELY DISCLAIMER, COPYRIGHT, AND TERMS OF USE CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THE WEB SITE, AS ONE OR ALL MAY HAVE CHANGED RECENTLY.

COPYRIGHT & TERMS OF USE


Invest Safely, LLC ("Invest Safely", "we," or "us") provides this website, Invest-Safely.com, located at http://www.invest-safely.com/ (the "Site"), to you, an individual user ("you") for your individual usage, subject to compliance with the copyright & terms and conditions set forth herein.

1. Agreement

By using the Site, you agree to be bound by our Terms of Use. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions contained within the Terms of Use, we do not consent to provide you with access to the Site, and you should cease your use of it.

2. Changes to the Terms of Use

We reserve the right at any time to:

    a. Change the terms and conditions;
    b. Change the Site, including eliminating or discontinuing any content or feature of the Site; or
    c. Impose fees, charges or other conditions for use of the Site or parts thereof (with reasonable notice).

Invest Safely may modify the Site at any time without prior notice, and you accept those modifications if you continue to use the Site. You should check the Site frequently to see recent changes.

3. Important Securities Disclaimer

You understand that no content published on the Site constitutes a recommendation that any particular security, portfolio of securities, transaction or investment strategy is suitable for any specific person.

You further understand that none of the bloggers, information providers or their affiliates are advising you personally concerning the nature, potential, value or suitability of any particular security, portfolio of securities, transaction, investment strategy or other matter.

To the extent any of the content published on the Site may be deemed to be investment advice or recommendations in connection with a particular security, such information is impersonal and not tailored to the investment needs of any specific person.

You understand that an investment in any security is subject to a number of risks and that discussions of any security published on the Site will not contain a list or description of relevant risk factors.

In addition, please note that some of the stocks as to which content is published on the Site have a low market capitalization and/or insufficient public float. Such stocks are subject to more risk than stocks of larger companies, including greater volatility, lower liquidity and less publicly available information.

Blogs, postings or content on the Site, which may or may not be deemed by you to be recommendations may have an effect on their stock prices.

You understand that the Site may contain opinions with regard to securities mentioned in other blogs or products, and that opinions in one blog or product may be different from those in another blog or product.

You understand and agree that, although we require all employees to disclose every stock in which they, their immediate family, or any entity under their control, have a personal interest, if such stock is mentioned in a blog, post, or content which they write, outside bloggers or other content contributors or their affiliates may write about securities in which they or their firms have a position, and that they may trade for their own account, and that they may or may not be subject to a disclosure policy.

In cases where Invest Safely becomes aware that the employee has violated his or her disclosure obligation, Invest Safely will take appropriate action.

In addition, outside bloggers or content contributors may be subject to certain restrictions on trading for their own account. However, you understand and agree that at the time of any transaction that you make, one or more bloggers or content contributors or their affiliates may have a position in the securities written about.

You understand that performance data is supplied by sources believed to be reliable, that the calculations herein are made using such data, and that such calculations are not guaranteed by these sources, the information providers, or any other person or entity, and may not be complete.

Reference may be made on our Site to prior articles and opinions we have published. These references may be selective, may reference only a portion of an article or opinion, and are likely not to be current. As markets change continuously, previously published information and data may not be current and should not be relied upon.

All content on the Site is presented only as of the date published or indicated, and may be superseded by subsequent market events or for other reasons. In addition, you are responsible for setting the cache settings on your browser to ensure you are receiving the most recent data.

4. No Investment Recommendations or Professional Advice

The Site is not intended to provide tax, legal, insurance or investment advice, and nothing on the Site should be construed as an offer to sell, a solicitation of an offer to buy, or a recommendation for any security by Invest Safely or any third party.

You alone are solely responsible for determining whether any investment, security or strategy, or any other product or service, is appropriate or suitable for you based on your investment objectives and personal and financial situation.

You MUST consult an attorney or tax professional regarding your specific legal or tax situation.

7. Overview of Posting Comments or Content

Our blogs and content are intended to serve as a discussion center for thoughtful users who make their own investment decisions, with or without the help of a broker.

They are not the place for stock touters, cheerleaders or hypesters. We strongly encourage all participants to disclose any positions they have in stocks being discussed (e.g., long, short, no position).

We also respectfully ask that you not engage in any:

    a. Stock touting
    b. Personal attacks
    c. Profanity, vulgarity or offensive conduct of any kind
    d. Business solicitations or advertising
    e. Inappropriate, unethical or misleading behavior

These standards are designed to ensure that the dialogue on the Site is credible, responsible, intelligent and informative. We cannot guarantee that users will tell the truth, and we will not monitor the veracity of names and positions or the content of any posts.

However, by setting out the above guidelines, we hope to raise the credibility of the discussion and foster a spirit of open, honest exchanges of information.

In addition, please be advised that even if a user who posts a comment may, if the user so registers, be publicly identifiable only by the alias he or she chose during registration, Invest Safely records will contain the actual identity of the author of any comment posted to the Site.

You are solely responsible for your use of the Site. Because Invest Safely merely serves as a repository of information, user-posted content does not represent the advice, views, opinions or beliefs of Invest Safely, and Invest Safely makes no claim of accuracy of any user-posted material.

If you have any comments on our policies, or complaints or concerns of any kind about any posts, please contact us at contact@invest-safely.com. We will review all of the information that you communicate to us, but we may not be able to take action or respond directly to each e-mail.
