1. User’s Acknowledgment and Acceptance of Terms.
BY REGISTERING ON, VIEWING OR USING THIS WEBSITE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND THE VARIOUS TERMS AND CONDITIONS GOVERNING THE USE OF OUR WEBSITE. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS, PLEASE EXIT THE SITE NOW. YOUR SOLE REMEDY FOR DISSATISFACTION WITH THIS SITE, OR ANY PRODUCTS, SERVICES, CONTENT, OR OTHER INFORMATION AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THIS SITE, IS TO STOP USING THE SITE AND/OR THOSE PARTICULAR PRODUCTS OR SERVICES. YOUR AGREEMENT WITH US REGARDING COMPLIANCE WITH THESE TERMS BECOMES EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY UPON COMMENCEMENT OF YOUR USE OF OR ACCESS TO THIS SITE.
We reserve the right to modify or amend these Terms from time to time without notice to you. Any modifications or amendments of the Terms shall be effective immediately upon posting on the Website. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review these Terms each time you log on to check for any modifications. Your continued use of this Site after such modifications will constitute your acknowledgement of the modified Terms and your express agreement to abide and be bound by them.
You can determine when these Terms were most recently modified by reviewing the “last modified” date at the top of this document. As noted above, regardless of the method by which you are notified or put on notice of any modifications to these Terms, your continued use of the Website following such modifications constitutes an affirmative: (a) acknowledgment by you of the applicability to you of these Terms and any such modifications: and (b) agreement by you to abide and be bound by these Terms, including such modifications.
As used in these Terms, references to our “Affiliates” include our owners, subsidiaries, affiliated companies, officers, directors, suppliers, partners, sponsors, contractors, employees, and advertisers, and includes (without limitation) all parties involved in creating, producing, managing, administering and/or delivering this Site and/or its contents on behalf of ATHC. The term “Affiliates” does not include site users or members.
For purposes of these Terms, “Content” is defined as any information, data, communications, software, photos, video, graphics, music, sounds, and any other material and Services that can be viewed or accessed by users on our Site. This includes, but is in no way limited to, message boards, chat, and other original content.
2. Description of Services.
Using Information on ATHC website:
- ATHC provides users an area to discuss financial-related information, views, opinions, and the recommendations of individuals and organizations.
- You are completely responsible for your own investment decisions and who and what you believe on the boards. The boards are designed to help you gain the information edge you need to help you make your own decisions. You are responsible for properly analyzing and verifying any information you choose to rely upon.
- Members should be aware that other members may not be who they say they are. We strive very hard to make sure members post under only one user account, but there is no guarantee our efforts will always be successful. ATHC does not perform a background check on any of the member profiles. We do not guarantee that members’ profiles contain accurate information. Members should also be aware that other members may use ATHC for personal gain. Therefore, everyone should approach messages with appropriate skepticism and objectivity.
- Messages posted by individuals may be misleading, deceptive, or in error. If you disagree with a posting, feel free to voice your opinion. It is the policy of ATHC to allow our members to freely discuss issues in a free and open manner, and we will not take sides in disagreements or disputes based on investment sentiment or other subjective criteria.
- ATHC is largely a self-policing discussion site, which means that our site administrators (“Site Admins”) will review communications received from members regarding violations of the Site policies. Upon receipt of such communications, the Site Admins can and will take such action as they deem appropriate (at their sole discretion), including, but not limited to the removal of post(s) and the suspension or termination of account(s).
- If you believe a message has been intentionally posted in violation of securities laws you should contact the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The SEC’s contact information for such matters can be found at http://sec.gov/complaint.shtml
- You should be aware of the possible risks of on-line investing and market analysis. The SEC publishes information on cyber fraud. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), provides analysis on how to invest carefully in the electronic world. The North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) provides tips on how to avoid online investment schemes aimed at taking advantage of unsuspecting investors. Their websites are instructive and can be found at:
We make various services and Content (as defined above) available on this Site including, but not limited to, the provision of a forum for the discussion of various topics, including without limitation, investments, real time market information, politics, and other topics (collectively “the Services”). Fees for certain Services (also referred to as “Premium Services”) are described elsewhere in this Site. We reserve the sole right to either modify or discontinue the Site, including any features therein, at any time with or without notice to you. We shall not be liable to you or any third party should we exercise such right. Modifications may also include, but are not limited to, changes in the pricing structure, the addition or deletion of Premium Services, or changes to allowances and limitations. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, any new features that augment or enhance the then-current Services on this Site shall also be subject to these Terms.
You understand and agree that temporary interruptions of the Services available through this Site may occur as normal events. You further understand and agree that we have no control over third party networks you may access in the course of your use of this Site, and therefore, delays and disruption of other network transmissions are completely beyond our control.
You understand and agree that the Content and Services available on this Site are provided “AS IS” and that we assume no responsibility for the accuracy, relevance, timeliness, deletion, misdelivery or failure to store any Content, posts, images, communications or personalized settings.
Moderators. This Site utilizes the services of volunteer moderators for the individual forums. These moderators are not employees or agents of ATHC, and their actions and opinions are not ours. If you serve as a moderator, you agree to be bound by these Terms for the Website.
Moderators for ticker specific (e.g., stock specific) boards are selected by Site Admins from a pool of applicants. On general topic boards, lead moderators (typically the board creator) have the ability to add and remove assistant moderators. ATHC reserves the right to assign and remove both lead and assistant moderators from any board at any time at its sole discretion. Neither origination of a board nor availability of moderator/assistant positions on a board guarantees the ability to assume or retain any moderator position.
Professional/Commercial Members – Disclosures and Disclaimers.
Some ATHC members reflect an Investor Relations Professional (IRP) designation. IRPs are professional businesspersons providing investor awareness, investor relations, or any other compensated promotional service or activity relating to a publicly traded stock. IRPs may be compensated to provide those services by either the company (stock) they are promoting or some other interested party. There are no umbrellas; anyone who is compensated to promote a stock, even if by another IRP, must carry their own IRP status. IRP’s pay ATHC a fee (typically $95/month) for their commercial use of the site. The IRP status provides them the means to include a notice and link to their legally required Disclosure/Disclaimer. If a post qualifies for a Disclaimer/Disclosure, it is the IRP’s responsibility to mark their posting accordingly.
While ATHC requires all professional members to declare their status and maintain an active IRP subscription while engaged in any regulated activities on the site, we cannot guarantee that all do. The absence of an IRP Disclosure/Disclaimer should not be construed to indicate the poster is not subject to Section 17(b) of the Securities Act of 1933. ATHC does not track promotional activity engaged in by IRPs and we are not party to their promotion agreements. Our IRP subscription fees (described above) are assessed for their commercial use of the site and providing them the means to include any legally required Disclosures/Disclaimers with their posts.
3. Registration Data and Privacy.
In order to access some of the Services on this Site, you will need to open a separate account where you will create a login name, alias, and password by completing our online registration form, which requests certain information and data (“Registration Data”). Each login name and alias will be unique. ATHC reserves the right to refuse to grant any login name or alias that, in our determination, impersonates the login name or alias of another person, that is not in good taste or that we otherwise in our sole discretion deem to be inappropriate. However, ATHC is not responsible for policing against or preventing impersonation nor will ATHC be liable for any claims arising out of impersonation; if you suspect that you are being impersonated, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
By registering, you agree that your Registration Data is true and accurate and that you will maintain and update your Registration Data as necessary so that it remains true and accurate. Failure to maintain accurate Registration Data, including without limitation e-mail address, may result in your immediate removal from the Website.
You agree to maintain only one account with the Website. Determination of multiple account usage by allegedly related persons or persons originating from common locations is at the sole discretion of ATHC.
4. Payment of Fees.
Charges for the upcoming Premium Services may be billed to your credit card or paid by check or money order sent to our remittance address. Recurring charges are collected in advance of service. If, for any reason, your credit card company refuses to pay the amount billed for the service, you agree that we may, at our option, suspend or terminate your subscription to the Premium Services and require you to pay the overdue amount by other means acceptable to us. If you terminate your subscription for Premium Services within three (3) days of your payment without having made extensive use of premium features during that subscription period, as determined by ATHC, and are not otherwise in violation of these Terms, you will be entitled to a refund of the most recently paid subscription. Other than the foregoing, fees will not be refunded for any reason, including without limitation imposition of account limitations or suspension, account termination, and/or service interruptions.
