We reserve the right also to change the category or location of any Content.
7. Posting of User Content
Savvy Investor is a professional knowledge network and published Content is expected to meet the very highest standards of insight and professionalism. Any “article” or “paper” submitted must be objective, balanced and educational. Content which fails to meet the required standards or follow guidelines may be deleted and the author’s user privileges may be revoked.
You agree not to publish content which under MiFID II regulations may be deemed an “inducement” to portfolio managers or investment advisors.
You agree only to publish an “article” or “paper” if you have genuine experience and insight on a given subject. You agree to check that the format, presentation, grammar and spelling are of acceptable quality.
You agree not to publish an “article” or “paper” which explicitly promotes a company or its products / services. The services provided by a company may be described in the Company Directory. Any “article” or “paper” which explicitly promotes a company or its products will be removed and user privileges may be revoked.
Users may link to their company page or company website in a post, but this must be done in a measured and professional manner. You agree not to link to content which is subscription-only or can be viewed only after a log-in.
You undertake to maintain the highest levels of professional integrity and to ensure that all data and Content you publish is true, clear, accurate, and not misleading or unethical.
You agree to publish Content only using the English language(s) and to publish Content in the correct areas of the site. Jobs may be advertised only in the jobs listings. Conferences may be advertised only on the conference pages. You agree not to promote or link to sites which are competitors of ours.
You agree not to publish or to transmit any Content where you do not have the right to do so, under any law, regulation, or court order, including for reasons of copyright, licensing, trade secrets, privacy, publicity, patents, confidentiality, trademarks or rights (including intellectual property rights) of others, or as a result of an employment, contractual, fiduciary or other legal obligation or relationship.
You agree not to make any solicitation for investment or to provide any materials that constitute a public offering, invitation to subscribe for securities, or are in any way in contravention of relevant securities regulations or financial conduct regulations in your jurisdiction, in England and Wales, or in the jurisdictions of any person or organization to whom you grant access to such materials.
Responsibility of the user to act legally
The Website is available to users from a number of different jurisdictions. You agree not to violate any local, state, national or international law, regulation or order of any court, including but not limited to regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the UK Financial Conduct Authority, or the rules of any securities exchange, including without limitation, the NYSE, the NASDAQ Stock Market or the American Stock Exchange.
If you discuss, provide or promote investment services or products to persons through the Website, it is your responsibility to inform yourself of, and comply with, any legal or regulatory requirements that apply in the jurisdiction(s) of the participants to the communication.
Your disclosures relating to securities or conflicts of interest
If you write Content relating to securities, you agree to make relevant disclosures as follows:
You agree to disclose the existence at the time of writing of a long or short position (including stocks and derivatives or other instruments) in any security mentioned. Furthermore, you agree to disclose if you intend, at the time of writing, to sell or buy a security within three days of publication of a post that discusses that security.
You agree not to write about a stock with the intention to boost or reduce that stock's price and sell (or buy) into the resulting strength or weakness.
You agree to fully and accurately disclose any material relationships with companies about which you write, or parties that stand to gain from the viewpoint you are outlining. For example, if you provide services to a company whose stock you are writing about, you must disclose your relationship. This applies also to narrow asset classes; for example, if you are paid to promote a fine wine fund, this must be disclosed if you publish a paper about the outlook for investment in fine wines.
You agree not to upload, transmit or disseminate through the website any material which is unlawful, libelous, abusive, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, vulgar, offensive, indecent, threatening or menacing, or that may cause annoyance, harassment, inconvenience or needless anxiety.

8. Monitoring of Content
Each individual who publishes Content on the site is solely responsible for their own Content. This means that each Member, not us, is entirely responsible for everything they post on the site.

You acknowledge that we have the right in our sole discretion and without further notice to you, to monitor, censor, edit, move, or delete any and all Content posted on its Site or any Content transmitted from your Savvy Investor user account at any time and for any reason.

We will not tolerate comments which use inappropriate language, or which are discourteous towards fellow professionals. At our discretion, we may delete comments and Content, and block or delete accounts of users who fail to respect the community.
Moderating decisions are subjective, and we strive to make them carefully and consistently. Due to the volume of Content, we cannot review moderation decisions with users and cannot reverse decisions.
If you have any comments on our monitoring policies, or complaints or concerns of any kind about any posts, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will review all of the information that you communicate to us, but we may not be able to take action or respond directly to each email.

When we become aware of such Content, we may respond by removing the Content from the Website or revoking the publishing privileges of the user in question. A decision to remove or not to remove any Content is neither an assumption of liability for any inappropriate Content or an endorsement of Content. Nor should our decision to remove Content from the Website be regarded as indicating our view that it is inappropriate Content.
By using the Site, you understand and accept that some individuals may post comments that may be offensive, indecent, objectionable, false, misleading or otherwise inappropriate.
If you become aware of Content which you consider inappropriate, please email us with details at email@example.com.

12. Savvy dollar credits and terms applicable to Advertisers
A variety of different forms of Advertising is available through the site. This includes, without limitation, the company directory, banner advertising and jobs advertising. Advertising forms part of the Content of the Site and is covered by the same Terms of Agreement as other Content.
All monetary purchases made directly through the Site are purchases of credits which may be used to purchase advertising or “SavvyMail”. These credits are referred to as “Savvy dollars,” with one Savvy dollar credit costing US$1.00 (plus VAT where applicable). The pricing of services will be displayed on the relevant Site pages and we reserve the right to change the pricing at any time. As the Site increases in size, the price of Advertising is likely to rise commensurately.
Purchases of credits may be made for professional “B2B” purposes only, in keeping with the purposes and ethos of the site. Upon making a purchase an invoice (with relevant VAT details where appropriate) will be available immediately for download from the Site.
If, within seven days of purchasing credits, you change your mind, we will refund in full the cost of any unused credits purchased during that period. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange a refund to your payment card. After the seven day period, no refunds are offered. We make no guarantee of the effectiveness of any Advertising or other purchases made by you on the Site and do not offer any monetary refunds, except as stated within the seven day period.
In the unlikely event that Advertising purchased by you is adversely affected by operating difficulties on our part, we will make a pro-rata refund of Savvy dollar credits to your account. In such circumstances, please email us at email@example.com with details of your claim.
If you purchase any form of Advertising, then we will display such Content on the topic pages requested, for the times and frequencies specified at the time of placing the advertisement. We also reserve the right (but do not guarantee) to feature such content on other Site pages or newsletters tailored to individual users, based on their location, User Profile and preferences. If, as a result of your Advertising, you collect Personal Information from Site Members, you agree to keep such Personal Information strictly confidential and you agree to use and process it within the laws and regulations applicable to you.
If you use the site to advertise jobs, you may receive replies from Members which include CVs and other Personal Information. You agree to keep all such information strictly confidential and you agree to use and process it within all applicable laws and regulations, including European GDPR requirements.
If you are “connected” to another Member, or if they follow you, you may use the internal messaging system to contact them free of charge. Messages sent to other Members are known as “SavvyMail” and we make a charge for these messages, set at a level to manage the amount of mail received by Members. We do not encourage the use of SavvyMail for indiscriminate mailing of Members, and for this reason we do not offer a refund if your SavvyMail message is not replied to.
Savvy dollar credits may also be awarded to Members as a reward for contributing to the Site, for instance by writing Content or inviting new members. These “rewards” may be used on the Site to discount the price at which advertising is purchased. However, these “rewards” are discretionary and have no intrinsic value. When a user’s membership ends, for whatever reason, the number of “rewards” will be set to zero. You agree not to “game the system”, in order artificially to increase your “rewards”. We reserve the right to cancel retrospectively all such “rewards” and to terminate your membership immediately if, in our absolute discretion, we believe you are “gaming the system” in this way.
13. Terms applicable to Company Managers and Company Writers
If you “claim” or “create” a company profile in the Directory, then you automatically become a “Company Manager”. If you are registered on the site as an employee of your company, you may become a “Company Manager” or “Company Writer” when an existing Company Manager within your company assigns the role to you. Each company may have multiple Company Managers and Company Writers.
Company Managers and Company Writers on the Site have special permissions and are expected to exercise those permissions diligently. Company Writers may publish content in their company name and may also edit content, which has been written by others in the company name.
The responsibilities of a Company Manager includes: i) creating and editing the company profile, ensuring that it is up-to-date, true, clear and not misleading, ii) controlling who else within the company may have the permissions of a Company Manager or Company Writer, iii) arranging payment for renewal of Company status (paid profiles only).
If you have the role of Company Manager or Company Writer, you agree to exercise the role responsibly. We strongly recommend that all companies have two or more Company Managers, in order to provide cover in case of sickness or holiday.
We can each end this Agreement at any time.
a. Mutual rights of termination
You may cancel your registration and terminate this Agreement at any time and for any reason. We may also cancel your registration and terminate this Agreement for any reason or no reason, at any time, with or without notice. Termination of your Savvy Investor account includes disabling your access to the Site and may also bar you from any future use of the Site.
b. Misuse of the Website
You understand that we may, without prior notice, restrict, suspend or terminate the account of any Member who abuses or misuses their Site privileges. Reasons for such termination might include, without limitation, violations of this Agreement, repeatedly inviting Members you don’t know to connect, abuse of the messaging service, creation of false profiles, or breaching our rules on posting of Content.
If we terminate your Account, our intention is to notify you by email and an explanation for the termination will be provided. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve the right to terminate without giving reasons. Any user terminated for misuse of the Website must not attempt to re-register using new credentials.
c. Effect of Termination
Upon termination of your Savvy Investor account, you lose access to the Site and any Content owned by you may be removed. Any refundable, unused purchases of Savvy dollar credits (but not “rewards”) will be refunded to you within one month of termination.

NEITHER WE, NOR OUR DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, MEMBERS, ADVERTISERS OR AGENTS ARE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR OTHER DAMAGES INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF THESE DAMAGES), RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE SITE OR CONTENT, OR ANY PRODUCT OR SERVICE USED OR PURCHASED THROUGH SAVVY INVESTOR. YOUR SOLE REMEDY FOR DISSATISFACTION WITH THE SITE IS TO STOP USING IT. THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE MAXIMUM LIABILITY TO US FOR ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES, AND CAUSES OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, SHALL BE THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID TO US BY YOU, IF ANY, FOR ACCESS TO THE SITE, OR £250 IF GREATER. THIS APPLIES WHETHER OR NOT WE SHOULD HAVE KNOWN ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations may not apply to you.
We do not accept any liability for damage to your computer system or loss of data that results from your use of the Website and we cannot guarantee that any files that you download are free from viruses, contamination or destructive features.
Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that this Agreement adheres strictly with the relevant provisions of the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977, in the event that any of these terms are found to be unlawful, invalid or otherwise unenforceable, that term is to be deemed severed from this Agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining Agreement. The particular term shall apply only within jurisdictions where the particular term is legal or enforceable.
As a condition of your use of the Site, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold us, our directors, employees and agents, harmless from any and all claims, liability, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable legal costs and expenses, arising out of or caused by (a) your use of the Site or Content, (b) your violation of this Agreement, (c) your violation of the rights of any third party, or (d) any claim that one of your posts caused damage to a third party. This defence and indemnification obligation will survive this Agreement and your use of the Site.
a. Governing law and jurisdiction
Regardless of your country of origin or where you access the Website, the Terms shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with English Law. You and we both agree that disputes arising in connection with the Terms shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales. Notwithstanding the above, you agree that we shall still be entitled to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.
If any provision of this Agreement is found by any court or competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be modified so as to render it enforceable and effective to the maximum extent possible in order to effect the intention of the provision. If a court or competent authority finds the modified provision invalid, unlawful or unenforceable, the unenforceable term, condition or provision will to that extent be severed. The remaining terms, conditions and provisions will continue to be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Neither party may assign or transfer any of its rights or under these Terms without the prior written consent of the other. We may assign or transfer our rights subject to our obligations under these Terms in connection with a reorganisation or sale of our business in connection with which the Website is operated or to any company for our convenience. No term in these Terms is enforceable under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 by any person who is not a party to it.
d. Entire agreement
You agree that this Agreement constitutes the entire, complete and exclusive agreement between you and SavvyPro Networks Ltd regarding the Site and Content and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings, whether written or oral, or whether established by custom, practice, policy or precedent, with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement.
e. Notify us of acts contrary to the Agreement
If you believe you are required or entitled under law to act in a way which is in breach of any of the Terms of this Agreement, you agree to provide us with a full and detailed justification in writing at least 28 days before such breach.
f. No Waiver
In the event that any party to these Terms fails to exercise any right or remedy either under these Terms or any applicable law, this shall not be construed as a waiver of that right or remedy.
