Terms of Use

No Individualized Investment Advice; Not a Solicitation or Offer to Sell or Buy Securities

THIS WEBSITE (“THE SITE”) DOES NOT CONTAIN INVESTMENT ADVICE THAT IS INDIVIDUALIZED FOR THE NEEDS, GOALS OR OBJECTIVES OF ANY PERSON; DOES NOT CLAIM ANY INVESTMENT OR INVESTMENT STRATEGY WILL PROVE PROFITABLE; AND DOES NOT OFFER OR SOLICIT THE PURCHASE OR SALE OF ANY SECURITY.

The peterlazaroff.com website (including all of its webpages, collectively, the “Site”) is published by Lazaroff, LLC (“Lazaroff”). The Site does not: (1) provide advice on the suitability of any investment or investment strategy for any person; (2) does not claim any investment or investment strategy will prove profitable; and (3) does not offer or solicit the purchase or sale of any security.

Because this Site does not consider the specific needs or circumstances of any person, it does not consider individual legal, tax, accounting, or other significant issues that would be important regarding the needs or circumstances for any person. Please consult your legal, tax, and financial professionals with respect to your particular needs and circumstances. Securities prices fluctuate and may lose value. Results of an investment made today may differ substantially from historical results due to changing economic or market conditions, or other factors that are not presented on the Site. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Always seek the advice of an investment professional before making any investment decision.

Undisclosed Conflicts; Positions Inconsistent with Views Expressed

The articles, webpages, and other information published on this Site (collectively referred to as the “Site Content”) is authored and created, variously, by Lazaroff, its directors, officers, employees, agents, consultants or third-party content providers (collectively, the “Content Providers”). Site Content constitutes the opinion solely of the Content Creator who created it. None of the Site Content constitutes a recommendation to buy or sell any particular security or portfolio of securities, or engage in any securities transaction or investment strategy, or that any security, portfolio, transaction, or strategy is suitable for any specific person.

Each user of the Site understands that: none of the Content Creators is aware of the Personal Information about any particular user; and none of the Content Creators will advise a specific user concerning the advisability, 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 Site may be deemed to be investment advice, such information is always impersonal and not tailored to the investment needs of any specific person.

From time to time, one or more Content Creator may hold positions or interests in securities mentioned in the Site Content that they may trade for their own account(s), including based on the information presented in the Site. A Content Creator may take positions in a security that are inconsistent with the views the Content Creator (or the views of the Content Creator’s employer, employee, or agent) expressed in Site Content; provided, Content Creators are prohibited from posting Site Content for the purpose of illegal manipulation of the price of a security.

Conflicts of interest may exist in connection with Site Content authored by a Content Creator that such Content Creator would be required to disclose to a client, but that the Content Creator does not disclose. Users of the Site must be aware that Content Creators disclaim the obligation to disclose conflicts of interest. Use of the Site constitutes waiver of the Content Creators’ obligations to disclose conflicts of interest and waiver and acceptance of any conflicts that may exist.

There is no representation that Lazaroff (or its member, employee, or any agent) is licensed or registered with any federal or state securities regulatory agency as an investment adviser; it is Lazaroff’s view that it is not an investment adviser, as defined under federal and state statutes, or is entitled to an exclusion from such registration.

Investing in any securities discussed in the Site 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. Users of the Site should only invest capital they can afford to lose, and not capital required for other purposes, such as retirement savings, student loans, mortgages or education.

Disclaimer

None of the Content Providers shall be responsible for any errors or omissions in the Site Content. All Site Content is provided on a “when made,” “as is,” and “as available” basis. Site Content speaks as of various dates that is usually (but not always) indicated on the particular webpages, articles, or other items of Site Content (but which is sometimes not specifically stated). Although none of the Content Providers is currently aware of material errors in the Site Content created by such party (or created by another of the Content Providers, of which they have not notified Lazaroff), none of them guarantees the accuracy or completeness of the Site Content they prepared. Each of the Content Providers disclaims any responsibility to update or correct any of the Site Content, or to advise any person of any material errors discovered in, changes in, updates to, or revisions of any Site Content.

The Content Providers make no warranties or representations and disclaim all express, implied and statutory warranties of any kind to the user and any third party, including, but not limited to, any warranties of accuracy, timeliness, completeness, merchantability, non-infringement and fitness for any particular purpose. Except for claims that cannot be excluded by the applicable law, none of the Content Providers shall have any liability, including but not limited to, tort, contract or any other liability to user or any third-party arising as a result of use of or access to this Site. The Content Providers make no warranty that:

None of the Content Providers shall be liable to any user or any third party for lost profits or lost opportunity, direct, indirect, special, consequential, incidental or punitive damages whatsoever, even if Lazaroff, its affiliates or third-party providers have been advised of the possibility of such damages.

Some jurisdictions do not allow for the exclusion or limitation of implied warranties or liability for incidental or consequential damages. Therefore, the above limitations may not apply to you, or there may be applicable laws which supersede the above. Any clause of this disclaimer declared invalid by the appropriate authority in each jurisdiction shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remainder of this disclaimer.

These Terms of Use, including without limitation, the Disclaimer, and any dispute, disagreement, or issue of construction or interpretation arising hereunder, whether relating to its validity, or the rights or obligations of Lazaroff, any other Content Provider, or any user or any third party shall be governed or interpreted according to the laws of the State of Missouri. Any action, suit or proceeding, whether in law or equity, arising out of, under or in connection with these Terms of Use or any user’s or any third party’s rights or obligations shall be brought and determined in the appropriate federal or state court in the State of Missouri  and in no other forum.
