or buy any investment; or as an endorsement, recommendation, or sponsorship of any company, security, or fund. To the extent
that any of the content published as part of the Service may be deemed to be investment advice, such information is impersonal
and not tailored to the investment needs of any specific person. You further understand that no information provider or
affiliates associated with ClearcutSignals.com will advise you personally concerning the nature, potential, value, or
