Reasonable precautions have been taken to ensure that Site Content is complete and accurate. However, due to the nature of information delivery technology and the necessity of using multiple data sources, including third party content, we are unable to guarantee the accuracy of the data you access on or through the Site. Site Content is presented only as of the date published or indicated and may change without notice following market events or other reasons. The Site owner has no duty to update this Site. The Side owner shall not be liable to you or any third party for any damages arising from any actions or investment decisions taken by you or others based on the accuracy of the data presented on the Site.

The Site is not intended to provide any tax, legal, or investment advice, and nothing on the Site should be construed as a recommendation to acquire or dispose of any investment or security, or to engage in any investment strategy or transaction. It is recommended to consult an attorney or tax professional regarding your specific legal or tax situation.


You acknowledge and agree that the Site is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. No party connected to the QEMP (collectively, the “QEMP Parties”) guarantees the timeliness, accuracy, reliability, completeness, or usefulness of any aspect of the Site, all of which are assumed solely by you. None of the QEMP Parties warrants that the Site will meet your needs or expectations, or be uninterrupted, secure or error free or that the Site, its server or any files available for downloading through the Site are free of computer viruses or other harmful elements.

Speculation or stated beliefs about future events, such as market and economic conditions, company or security performance or other projections are “forward-looking statements“. These forward-looking statements represent the beliefs of the speaker/author and do not necessarily represent the views of the QEMP Parties. General business, market, economic and political conditions could cause actual results to differ materially from what the speaker/author presently anticipates or projects.

You agree that under no circumstances will the QEMP Parties be liable for any damages, whether direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, special, punitive or exemplary damages (collectively, the “Excluded Damages“), arising out of, or in any way connected with, your use of or inability to use the Site, including but not limited to: loss of revenue, trading losses, anticipated profits, business, savings, goodwill or data; any failure of performance, denial of service, attack, interruption, defect, operator errors, inconvenience or delay in operation or transmission or computer virus; failure of electronic or mechanical equipment or communications lines (including telephone, cable and internet); severe or extraordinary weather (including notably snowstorm, flood, earthquake); act of God; fire, war, insurrection, terrorist act, riot, labour dispute and other labour problems, accident, emergency or action of government; or third party theft of, destruction of, unauthorized access to, alteration or use of your information, equipment or property.

These limitations of liability will apply regardless of: (i) any negligence or gross negligence of any QEMP Parties (ii) whether the liability stems in negligence, strict liability, contract, tort (including negligence) or any other theory of legal liability and will remain in effect even if any remedy fails in its purpose.
