    1. To the extent the Website contains a forum or ability for you to comment on any content (Forum), the Website is operated in accordance with ASIC Regulatory Guide 162 (RG 162).

      1. the Company does not endorse or vouch for the accuracy or authenticity of any posts by any person other than the Company (User Posts);
      2. no-one is permitted to make User Posts as a licensed investment adviser, or as a representative of a licensed adviser; 
      3. User Posts are at best general information, not professional investment advice prepared by taking into account any individual circumstances and needs of particular investors. Therefore, before acting on the basis of what is said in a posting, you should:
        1. consider consulting a licensed adviser (ASIC’s website at www.asic.gov.au has a list of licensed advisers); and 
        2. visit ASIC’s consumer website at www.fido.gov.au or www.moneysmart.gov.au for general guidance about investing; 
      4. people making User Posts are individually responsible for the accuracy and authenticity of their User Posts; 
      5. because of the nature of the internet, it may be hard to identify or locate the person making a User Post. The person may also be in an overseas jurisdiction, so it may be hard to take any legal action against them; 
      6. you will have no access to ASIC-approved dispute resolution schemes to recover any losses you may suffer by relying on the User Posts; 
      7. securities cannot be offered to you for sale or issue through User Posts on the Website; and 
      8. it is advisable that you alert the Company or ASIC Infoline on 1300 300 630 if you have good reason to suspect that any User Posts are inaccurate, are based on inside information or are likely to mislead or deceive people who view or use the User Posts.
    3. In accordance with RG 162.42, the Company provides you with the following warnings in respect of any content you post User Posts on the Website:
      1. You are personally responsible for your User Posts (including any alterations that you make to postings). Therefore, you should not include any misleading or deceptive information in your User Posts and not carry out illegal or unauthorised activities using the Website. Information in postings may, where appropriate, be made available to ASIC. ASIC and people acting on such information may take action against you.
      2. If you include hyper-links to other websites, you may be seen as endorsing the material on such linked websites. It may be advisable to you to warn people accessing other linked websites that you do not endorse or take responsibility for material in the linked websites.
      3. If you own or have some other interest in a security, or you have any connection with a securities issuer that you might benefit from, you must disclose that fact. For example, you may be entitled to receive direct or indirect commissions, fees or other benefits from a financial product or service provider; or you may be associated with a particular securities issuer such as by being an employee or director of a securities issuer. If so, you must disclose that fact in your User Posts.
      4. If we find or reasonably suspect that you are making illegal or unauthorised User Posts, your right to make User Posts will be withdrawn.
      5. No one is permitted to make User Posts on the Website in their capacity as a representative of a holder of an Australian Financial Service Licence (AFSL) or as an Authorised Representative of a holder of an AFSL.
