The Company may, at any time, change or discontinue any aspect or feature of a Service, including Content, hours of availability, and equipment and software needed for access or use. We may update the Content, including, but not limited to, any Data on the Services from time to time, but Content is not necessarily complete or up-to-date.

The Company may revise and update this Agreement from time to time in our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when we post them, and apply to all access to and use of the Services thereafter.

You are expected to check this page from time to time so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you.

 

DISSEMINATION, DISCONTINUANCE, OR MODIFICATION

You understand that, at any time, the Company may discontinue disseminating any feature of the Services, including, but not limited to, any category of Data, may change or eliminate any transmission method, and may change transmission speeds, or other signal characteristics.

USER CONTRIBUTIONS; ONLINE COMMUNITIES & FORUMS; RULES, POLICIES, & DISCLAIMERS

The Services may contain the ability to post content or messages or otherwise communicate with other users, including message boards, chat functionality, personal web pages or profiles, forums, and other interactive features that allow users to post, submit, publish, display, or transmit to other Users or other Persons (hereinafter, “post“) content or materials (collectively, “User Contributions“) on or through the Services.  Any User Contribution you post to the Services will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary.

You understand and acknowledge that you are responsible for any User Contributions you submit or contribute, and you, not the Company, have full responsibility for such content, including its legality, reliability, accuracy, and appropriateness. We are not responsible, or liable to any third-party, for the content or accuracy of any User Contributions posted by you or any other user of the Services. User Contributions, including any messages in online communities or forums express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of the Company or any entity affiliated with the Company. 

The Company does not claim ownership of any User Contribution. However, by posting a User Contribution to the Services, you grant to the Company and our distributors a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, non-exclusive, and fully transferable and sub-licensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, and display User Contributions you post, in whole or in part, throughout the world for any purpose, including commercial and promotional purposes without additional compensation or consent.

 

REMOVAL OF POSTS & MESSAGES

Any User who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact the Company’s Institutional Client Services Team at privacy@oneilsecurities.com. We have the ability to remove objectionable or violative messages and if it is determined that removal is necessary, we will make every effort to do so within a reasonable time frame. This is a manual process, however, so we may not be able to remove particular messages immediately.
