Finance Knowledge Base - Legal Information

Good Knowledge Is Good2Use

The Good2Use financial knowledge base is designed to help you manage your financial matters. This means that, at all times, we aim to be as accurate as we can with our information. For this reason this part of the site contains no advertisements, although sites we link to, outside of, may.. So below we set out some key points you should bear in mind when using our site. These should be read in conjunction with the Terms & Conditions of our service.

Beware of Cyberfraud

Some of the information on our feedback boards is provided by our staff but predominantly it is written by our users, who may use anonymous screen names and are people we have never met. Whilst we believe that the feedback boards are invaluable to the growth of the knowledge base, people just might post messages that are misleading, deceptive, or downright wrong. They may do this unintentionally or, sad to say, intentionally.
We will always do our best to address this and our staff and other users will question any information in posts that they believe may be inaccurate or misleading. In extreme cases, we remove posts if they break our terms and conditions of service.

However, forewarned is forearmed. We appreciate that no system of self-regulation can be 100% perfect. The Financial Services Authority (FSA) recognises the dangers and has published information on various kinds of Internet fraud that they see occurring. The National Association of Securities Dealers and the Securities and Exchange Commission, whilst both being US organisations, also have a lot of useful information on this subject that is equally interesting to UK residents.

Make Your Own Decisions

We always aim to have the highest quality information. However, mistakes do get made - hence the feedback system. We do not allow tips on this system in the same way that we do not tip individual shares ourselves. We provide the methodology whereby the user can make their own decisions.
Treat any tips you may see there in the same way you'd treat anyone you'd come across socially. If you do find any we would appreciate an e-mail to so as to alert us to this.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure that the information you read here is accurate it is your responsibility to decide for yourself the accuracy and merits of any information found on the knowledge base or in the associated feedback fora.

Good2Use does not guarantee the accuracy, veracity, or completeness of any information we provide. That is why we have a feedback system as we know some things are debatable and somethings may even be wrong. We will, however, be as prompt as we can in clearing up any confusions and rectifying errors. We do not give investment advice, to make "buy" or "sell" recommendations, or to tell you what to do with your money. We're here to help you make investment decisions for yourself.

Good2Use will not be responsible for any errors or omissions in articles or postings, for hyperlinks embedded in messages, or for any results obtained from the use of such information. Good2Use will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by a reader's reliance on information obtained in our area, or in a hyperlinked area.
Good2Use provides the methodology with which to make financial decisions so you will still need to do independent research on shares and other financial products Please proceed with caution, and be wary of those who post hyperlinks to strange web sites.
