Any selection you make in connection with the platform shall be made under your own exclusive and full responsibility and you fully discharge Finlantern of any liability in connection therewith.
As a Member of the Finlantern Community, you may interact with persons, who may be located in a country different from yours, and such persons may be restricted by applicable legislation to market or to offer to you certain services or products. You understand and agree that attendees may therefore refuse to make contact with you, or market or offer services to you based on their own assessment of their compliance duties with (cross-border) regulations applicable to them. Finlantern Community does not guarantee nor represent to you that you will have full and unlimited access to all other Members, and you acknowledge that you will have no recourse against Finlantern for any refusal of contact or limitation of contacts by any such other Members.
You acknowledge that Finlantern cannot (and do not) assess whether contacts (e.g. chats, calls, download of documentation, etc.) you may have with other Members may occur in violation of regulations applicable to other Members or yourself, and you acknowledge that Finlantern will not monitor contacts that you may have with other Members. You therefore accept and agree that Finlantern have no obligation to intervene in, or interrupt, such contacts you may have with other Members. Not with standing the foregoing, Finlantern will not tolerate actions or contacts which are contrary to applicable regulations and retain the right, on becoming aware of such actions or contacts, to take any appropriate action, including terminating immediately access to the Community to any persons involved in such actions or contacts, and revoke access privileges without notice and compensation.
As a Member, you acknowledge that you have to make your own assessments as to whether contacts, including request of meetings, offer of services or products you may propose to other Members, are in compliance with applicable regulations. You hereby agree to comply with such applicable regulations, and fully discharge Finlantern of any liability in connection therewith.
You acknowledge that you have to make your own assessments, with, as the case may be, the help of your own advisors, in connection with offers of services or products, including investment products, which may be advertised to you thanks to the Community. You understand that services or products advertised to you may not be appropriate or suitable to you and/or may even not be legal for you to purchase or subscribe, and/or may result, when accepted or subscribed by you, in various financial and legal risks and, possibly total losses. You acknowledge that Finlantern does not endorse nor recommend any of such products or services, and is not in any way advising you in connection with such offers of services or products, nor is holding themselves out in any way as your fiduciary in connection with such products or services. You fully discharge Finlantern of any liability in connection therewith.
