In addition, we do not necessarily endorse any contents of websites operated by third parties that are linked to or from the site or are accessible via the site.

The Content is by necessity, general in nature and is not intended as financial, regulatory, legal or other professional advice. In particular, the Content is provided for information purposes only and does not constitute nor should it be construed (where applicable) as investment advice or a recommendation to transact or engage in any investment activity.

While every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy, correctness and/or functionality of the Content at the time of creation of the site, we cannot and do not warrant the accuracy, validity, fitness and/or functionality of any of the Content found on the site or any other sites linked to our site or reproduced with permission from other parties or that the site and the server is and will be free of viruses, and errors or omissions may occur.
