No Personal Advice
The Golden Investor is not in the business of rendering personalized investment advice. We can’t know all the relevant facts about you and your individual needs, and we cannot claim or represent that any particular Services are suitable for you. Accordingly, you agree that any recommendation or action taken by a Service does not constitute a recommendation that a particular security, strategy, or action is suitable for you. If you want personal advice, then you should seek a registered investment advisor.
The Golden Investor may partner with third parties in order to make buying our Services’ recommendations easier for you. We will not, and cannot, trade on your behalf at your brokerage. Only you can decide whether or not a stock is right for you and you agree to be liable for any trades you initiate at your brokerage using tools that we or our partners provide.
Own Responsibility for Your Financial and Investment Decisions
You and you only are responsible for your own personal investment decisions, The Golden Investor in no way has the capacity to provide financial advice which fits the personal needs of all our readers across the globe.

You and you only are capable of maintaining a right distribution of your assets.
By your use of our Services, you’re agreeing that you bear responsibility for your own investment research and investment decisions. You also agree that The Golden Investor will not be liable for any investment decision made or action taken by you and others based on news, information, opinion, or any other material published through our Services.

Class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted, and your Claim may not be consolidated with any other person’s claim. You and we agree that the “Auteurswet” in Civil Code of The Netherlands governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.
Before you or we commence an arbitration or file a small claims court action with respect to a Claim, you must first send to The Golden Investor a written notice of your claim or we must send a written notice of our claim to you (“Notice“).

You may update your email address by visiting the Services where you have provided contact information. If you do not provide us with accurate information, we will not be responsible for failure to notify you. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision in these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. These Terms, including all additional terms, conditions, and policies on the Services, constitute the entire agreement between you and us and supersede all prior agreements with respect to the subject matter hereof. If any part of these Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, that provision will be removed, and the remainder of the Terms will continue to be valid and enforceable.
