2. Description of Services
Using Information on iHub
- iHub 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. iHub 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 iHub 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 iHub
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.
- iHub 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. We are able to keep your membership fees low due in part to the
use of such volunteers. These moderators are not employees or agents of iHub, and
their actions and opinions are not ours. If you serve as a moderator, you agree
to be bound by these Terms, including the terms of the iHub User and Moderator Handbook for the Website.
Board lead moderators have the ability to add and remove assistant moderators. iHub
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.
Site Admins are available to assist Members and to oversee application of these
Terms and the Website’s operating policies. They are not here to be the target of
abusive communications, including but not limited to attacks and threats against
them or iHub. Please refer to the Handbook – Communicating with iHub Admins
for the various methods of contacting Site Admins.
Professional/Commercial Members - Disclosures and Disclaimers
Some iHub 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 iHub 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 iHub 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. iHub 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.

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, iHub is not responsible
for policing against or preventing impersonation nor will iHub be liable for any
claims arising out of impersonation; if you suspect that you are being impersonated,
please contact us at email@example.com.

4. Payment of Fees
Charges for 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 iHub,

of the most recently paid subscription. Other than the foregoing, fees will not
