Finmedium.com 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, app 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 that 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 about 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 from time to time with regard to securities mentioned in other Finmedium.com blogs or products, and that opinions in one blog or product may be different from those in another blog or product. 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.  However, you understand and agree that non-employees, including outside bloggers or other content contributors or their affiliates, may write about securities in which they or their firms have a position, that they may trade for their own account, and that they may or may not be subject to a disclosure policy. In cases where Finmedium.com becomes aware that one of its employees has violated his or her disclosure obligation, Finmedium.com 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 they write about.

From time to time, 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 Finmedium.com 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 should consult an attorney or tax professional regarding your specific legal or tax situation.

7. Overview of Posting Content; Monitoring Content

The Site permits the submission of Content by users of the Site, including without limitation comments, articles, links, including from those who give permission to Finmedium.com to post their Content (“User Submissions”) and the hosting, sharing and publishing of such User Submissions on the Site. Finmedium.com has the right in its sole discretion and without further notice to you, to monitor, censor, edit, move, delete, and/or remove any and all Content posted on its Site or any Content transmitted by direct messaging or by any other method to or from your Finmedium.com user account at any time and for any reason. Without limiting the foregoing, Finmedium.com has the right to delete any comment or Content that it believes, in its sole discretion, does or may violate the TOU of the Site by you.

On user-generated Content and Comments, Finmedium.com reserves the right to remove content that violates one of the following principles, as determined by Finmedium.com, at our discretion:

  • No incitement to hatred. Material that promotes hatred toward groups based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity will be removed.
  • No pornography or pedophilia
  • No direct or veiled threats against any person or group of people.
  • No copyright infringement
  • No plagiarism. This includes posting content verbatim from other sources without proper attribution and/or repurposing content from other sources and presenting it without reference to the content’s creator. 
  • No publishing of other people’s personal  information, such as credit card numbers, Social Security Numbers, and driver’s and other license numbers.

Important note: Finmedium.com encourages civil, thought-provoking debate and idea-sharing among investors and stock-market followers. In order to maintain a level of discourse appropriate for our user base, we are strongly opposed to trolling, uncivilized discussion, mudslinging, inappropriate language, and blanket dismissal of others’ ideas. At our discretion, we may delete content, and block/delete accounts of users we believe lower the level of discourse and courtesy we strive to engender.

Moderating decisions are subjective, and we strive to make them carefully and consistently. Due to the volume of content, we cannot review moderation decisions with users and cannot reverse decisions.

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.

Without derogating from the above, Finmedium.com editors, at their discretion, may refrain from posting or remove User Submissions that violate these standards or which are otherwise inappropriate. 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.

If an author has a business relationship with a company named in an article that he or she has authored, that relationship must be fully and accurately disclosed.

If you have any comments on our policies, or complaints or concerns of any kind about any posts, please contact us at editor@finmedium.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 email.

Finmedium.com will use commercially reasonable efforts to attribute material User Submissions to the author.

If you provide any feedback or suggestions to Finmedium.com regarding the Site or Finmedium.com’s services, including without limitation in response to a survey or in connection with a particular User Submission (collectively, “Feedback”), Finmedium.com may use such Feedback for any purpose, including without limitation to provide it to authors. In order that we may incorporate such Feedback into Finmedium.com’s Site and/or services, Finmedium.com alone will own all right, title and interest, including all related intellectual property rights, in and to all such Feedback and you hereby assign such Feedback to Finmedium.com free of charge.

When you post any User Submission on the Site, you also agree to abide by the following disclosure rules:

  • To disclose the existence at the time of writing of a long or short position (including stocks, options or other instruments) in any stock mentioned in any User Submission (except for “Comments”). 
  • You may not write about a stock with the intention to boost or reduce the stock’s price and sell (or buy) the stock into the resulting strength or weakness.
  • If you intend at the time or writing to sell or buy a stock within three days of publication of a User Submission that discusses that stock, you must disclose this intention.
  • Abide by the following conflict of interest rule: You will disclose any material relationships with companies whose stocks you write about in a User Submission or parties that stand to gain in any way from the viewpoint you are outlining. Examples: You must disclose if you are employed by a company whose stock you are writing about; perform consulting for a company you write about; receive paid advertising revenue or any other form of sponsorship fee from a company you write about. This applies to narrow asset classes as well. For example, if you are paid to promote a gold dealer, that must be disclosed in any User Submission about gold.
  • If you choose an alias, be responsible for all statements made and acts or omissions that occur by use of your alias.
  • Waive any and all rights against Finmedium.com and hold Finmedium.com harmless in connection with any claims relating to any action taken by Finmedium.com as part of its investigation of a suspected violation or result of its conclusion that a violation of these TOU has occurred, including but not limited to the removal of User Submission from the Site or a suspension or termination of your access to the Site.

  • By use of your alias or in any comment, impersonate any person or entity, falsely or deceptively state, infer or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with or connection to any person or entity.
  • Post or transmit any Content which, either the act of posting or the comment itself, you do not have a right to do under any law, regulation or order of any court, or as a result of an employment, contractual, fiduciary or other legal obligation or relationship.
