Social Media Warning (Divulgence of Personal & Private Information)
Social media has provided a platform for internet users to disclose much personal information about themselves, in
a way that seems innocuous, if not proper and expected. However, more than a few folks have already lived to
regret personal information that was shared either by them or others. This has long been true of simple
email. It is exponentially true of social websites and applications for social media on any other website,
including this one. You are cautioned against carelessly disclosing information.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless our website, its members, officers, directors, employees, agents,
licensors, suppliers and any third party information providers to our website from and against all losses,
expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys' fees, resulting from any use of our website or

provisions directly against you on its/their own behalf.
We reserve the right to investigate complaints or reported violations of these Terms of Service and Conditions of
Use and to take any action we deem appropriate, including but not limited to reporting any suspected unlawful

appropriate to such persons or entities relating to your profile, email addresses, usage history, IP addresses and
This Agreement, in whole or in part, may be terminated without notice at any time for any reason. The provisions of
paragraphs 1 (Copyright, Licenses and Idea Submissions), 2 (Use of the Service), 3 (Indemnification), 4 (Third
Party Rights), 6 (Hiring an Attorney / No Attorney-Client Relationship), and 7 (Miscellaneous) shall survive any
termination of this Agreement, in whole or in part.
6.Hiring an Investment Advisor, Attorney, or Medical or Other Professional / No Attorney-Client Relationship or
Choosing a lawyer, doctor, or investment advisor is a serious matter and should NOT be based solely on data
contained on our website or in advertisements.
The law is constantly changing and the data may not be complete or accurate depending on your particular legal
issue. Each legal issue depends on its individual facts and different jurisdictions have different laws and
regulations. This is why you should seriously consider hiring licensed, professional counsel in your
Medical issues are complex, and can often stem from both organic and psychological factors. Never should a
website be used as a source of diagnosing or treating medical problems.
Financial matters are highly individualistic. Risk tolerance is just one factor to consider before making any
investments or financial decisions. For these, and other, reasons, you should look to the guidance of a
trained professional, not a website.
You may send us email, but in no instance will this communication in any way be construed as initiating an
attorney-client relationship, or other professional relationship, and so the contact should not include
confidential or sensitive data because your communication will not be treated as privileged or confidential.
This Agreement shall treated as though executed, set in force, and performed in the State of our address on record
(“Home State”). Accordingly, it shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the Home State
in terms of those applicable to agreements, without regard to conflict of law principles.

action arose or be forever waived and barred. All actions shall be subject to the limitations set forth in these
Terms of Service and Conditions of Use. Any legal claim arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service
and Conditions of Use or our website, excluding intellectual property right infringement and other claims by us,
shall be settled confidentially through mandatory binding arbitration per the American Arbitration Association
commercial arbitration rules. The arbitration shall be conducted in the Home State. Each party shall
bear one half of the arbitration fees and costs incurred, and each party shall bear its own lawyer fees. All
claims shall be arbitrated on an individual basis, and shall not be consolidated in any arbitration with any claim
or controversy of any other party.
Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor industry trade practice shall act to modify any provision of
Our website may assign its rights and duties under this Agreement to any party at any time without notice to
The language in these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use shall be interpreted as to its fair meaning and not
strictly for or against any party. Any rule of construction to the effect that ambiguities are to be resolved
against the drafting party (i.e. – “contra preferentum”) shall not apply in interpreting these Terms of Service and
Conditions of Use, as the Agreement shall be construed as having been co-authored by the parties.
Should any part of these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use be held invalid or unenforceable, that portion
shall be construed as much as possible consistent with applicable law and severability shall apply to the remaining
portions, so that they remain in full force and effect.
This Agreement Prevails
To the extent that anything in or associated with our website is in conflict or inconsistent with these Terms of
Service and Conditions of Use, these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use shall take precedence.
Our failure to enforce any provision of these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use shall not be deemed a waiver
of the provision nor of the right to enforce the provision.
Our rights under these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use shall survive any termination of this agreement.
Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.
