Financially Simple™ Disclaimers, Disclosure & Privacy Statements
All information on this website provided by Financially Simple and any of its affiliates are made available for customers and visitors to read for informational purposes only.
All information has been accumulated by websites and sources Financially Simple believe to be reliable in order to provide accurate information. Inadvertently, some information may include factual inaccuracies but all effort has been put into accuracy. Financially Simple expressly disclaims warranties of fitness or merchantability for particular purposes; no accuracy or completeness is warranted for the materials provided by Financially Simple.
Any loss or damage to come as a result of a failure or interruption of this site will not be of responsibility to Financially Simple nor any of its directors, employees, officers, or affiliates. Furthermore, Financially Simple will also not hold responsibility for any loss or damage caused by access or lack of access to this site nor for the omission of any third party involved in the data provided.
If any decisions are made as a result of the information on this site, the users hold full responsibility for this and if damage or loss does arise from particular decisions, you agree that Financially Simple is not accountable for the actions that were taken. Also, Financially Simple reserves the right to prohibit access to the site for any user at any point in time. At any time, Financially Simple may limit users’ access to certain materials or software without notice.
Product and Performance Disclaimers
Please understand that each circumstance is unique and Financially Simple is here to provide general advice and only this. No information should even be construed as an attempt to sell a product or service nor should it be construed as an offer to buy. In addition to this, the general information provided by Financially Simple should never replace professional financial advice towards taxation, legal, or financial matters as they aren’t aware of individual situations.
As the company is based in the United States, the information on this site has been catered towards those in the United States and users outside of this region should be aware that tax rules and restrictions may be completely different from those advised. At no point should the information provided be seen as an attempt to buy or even offer shares in any type of investment where the transaction would be considered unlawful under the appropriate laws according to the jurisdiction. As well as this, even US investors should be aware that not all the information provided will apply to them and not all investments will be available country-wide.
With regards to the performance information, it is all based on previous results and what happens in the past which means that Financially Simple does not hold any responsibility for what happens in the future. As with any other investment, results will vary and your investment may lose money just as it might gain money in the same timescale. It is completely possible to lose money by investing in the funds that are suggested or even noted on this site. Not only are these investments not deposits, but they are also not endorsed by any bank nor are they insured federally or guaranteed by the US government or any other agency. Ultimately, changed traded funds are often traded at a smaller price than their net asset value.
All returns will be subject to the taxes (both local and state) that are applied in any given location. Any capital gains will be subjected to capital gains tax and municipal investments are often free from federal income tax.
When investing in international securities, these involve completely different risks than investments in the US. Not only are they subject to the rules and restrictions in that location, but there are also political and economic risks that make it hard to predict any international trade patterns. Also, there is a lack of available information for foreign companies, the foreign exchanges rates could experience dramatic fluctuations, and regulations regarding investment and exchange could change at any moment.
Not all the investments described will be available for retirement savings plans nor will they be appropriate. All individuals should talk to their professional financial advisor to gain a better knowledge of what actions they can take. If you have any questions regarding funds from a sponsor, you should contact that sponsor directly.
