Your use of this website is subject to The DIY Investor LLC's terms and conditions of use set out below, and by using this website you are agreeing, and you are signifying your agreement, to be bound by these terms and conditions.

Terms and Conditions of Use
This investment blog (the “Blog”) is created and authored by The DIY Investor LLC the “Content Creator” and is published and provided for informational and entertainment purposes only (collectively, the “Blog Service”). The information in the Blog constitutes the Content Creator’s own opinions and such opinions are subject to change without notice. Under no circumstances does the information presented on the Blog represent a buy, sell or hold recommendation on any security. None of the information contained in the Blog constitutes a recommendation that any particular security, portfolio of securities, transaction, or investment strategy is suitable for any specific person. You understand that the Content Creator is not 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 information contained in the Blog may be deemed to be investment advice, such information is impersonal and not tailored to the investment needs of any specific person.
From time to time, the Content Creator or its affiliates may hold positions or other interests in securities mentioned in the Blog and may trade for their own account(s) based on the information presented. The Content Creator may also take positions inconsistent with the views expressed in its messages on the Blog.
You understand that an investment in any security is subject to a number of risks, and that discussions of any security published in the Blog will not contain a list or description of relevant risk factors. Investing in the investments discussed in the Blog may be risky and speculative. The companies may have limited operating histories, little available public information, and the stocks they issue may be volatile and illiquid. Trading in such securities can result in immediate and substantial losses of the capital invested. Investors are further cautioned that Small-Cap and Micro-Cap stocks have additional risks that may result in trading at a discount to their peers. Liquidity risk, caused by small trading floats and very low trading volume can lead to large spreads and high volatility in stock price. Small-Cap and Micro-Cap stocks may also have significant company-specific risks that contribute to lower valuations. Investors need to be aware of the higher probability of financial default and higher degree of financial distress inherent in the Small-Cap and Micro-Cap segments of the market.
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. Investors are expected to take full responsibility for any and all of their investment decisions based on their own independent research and evaluation of their own investment goals, risk tolerance, and financial condition. You should consult an attorney or tax professional regarding your specific legal or tax situation.
The Blog may be temporarily unavailable from time to time for maintenance or other reasons. The Content Creator assumes no responsibility for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operation or transmission, communications line failure, theft or destruction or unauthorized access to, or alteration of, the Blog. The Content Creator is not responsible for any technical malfunction or other problems of any telephone network or service, computer systems, servers or providers, computer or mobile phone equipment, or software occurring for any reason, including but not limited to, on account of technical problems or traffic congestion on the Internet or at any site or with respect to the Blog or combination thereof, including injury or damage to any person’s computer, mobile phone, or other hardware or software, related to or resulting from using or downloading Content Creators’ content in connection with the Web and/or in connection with the Blog. Under no circumstances will the Content Creator be responsible for any loss or damage, including any personal injury or death, resulting from anyone’s use of the Blog, or any interactions between the Content Creator and readers of the Blog, whether online or offline.
The Blog may provide information from or links to certain brokerage companies for your convenience only. The Content Creator does not endorse or recommend the services of any brokerage company. The brokerage company you select (and not the Content Creator) is solely responsible for its services to you.
Statements in the Blog that are not historical facts are “forward-looking statements” that involve risks and uncertainties. “Forward looking statements” as defined under Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, Section 21B of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the Private Securities Litigation Act of 1995 include words such as “opportunities,” “trends,” “potential,” “estimates,” “may,” “will,” “could,” “should,” “anticipates,” “expects” or comparable terminology or by discussions of strategy. These forward looking statements are subject to a number of known and unknown risks and uncertainties outside of the company’s or our control that could cause actual operations or results to differ materially from those anticipated. Factors that could affect performance include, but are not limited to, those factors that are discussed in each profiled company’s most recent reports or registration statements filed with the SEC. Investors should consider these factors in evaluating the forward looking statements included in this report and not place undue reliance upon such statements. Investors are encouraged to read investment information available at the websites of the SEC at http://www.sec.gov and FINRA at http://www.finra.org.
