Usage Agreement

Pinnacle Digest is Copyright © 2017 by Maximus Strategic Consulting Inc. All rights are reserved. Under no circumstances is content on this website allowed to be reposted, copied or redistributed without the express consent of Pinnacle Digest.

In respect to posting any blogs or comments on PinnacleDigest.com, you are by no means allowed to repost content published by another author unless you have received written and explicit consent by that author to do so. If you are in violation of this rule, and have posted copyrighted material on a blog or comment on PinnacleDigest.com, it will be removed from our site, and you will be banned.

Financial Information Disclaimer

Be advised, Maximus Strategic Consulting Inc., Pinnacle Digest and its writers, employees and consultants are not a registered broker-dealer or financial advisors. Before investing in any securities, you should consult with your financial advisor and a registered broker-dealer. Nothing on this website or in Pinnacle Digest’s newsletter is to be construed as investment advice.

Pinnacle Digest and the content on the Maximus Sites predominantly focus on micro-cap and small cap publicly traded companies. These types of stocks are VERY RISKY and are not suitable investments for most investors. Never, ever, make an investment based solely on what you read on Pinnacle Digest or in its online newsletter, especially if the investment involves a small, thinly-traded company that isn’t well known.

Most companies featured in the Pinnacle Digest newsletter are paying clients of Maximus. The clients typically pay Maximus a cash fee for the coverage provided and research conducted. And in many cases, we own shares in the companies we feature and advertise for. For those reasons, please be aware that we are extremely biased in regards to the companies we write about and feature in our newsletter and on our website.

Because we are paid by public companies to provide our online advertising and marketing services, and we (Maximus Strategic Consulting Inc. and our employees) may own shares in the companies mentioned in our newsletter, you must recognize the inherent conflict of interest involved that may influence our perspective on these companies; this is why we stress that you conduct extensive due diligence as well as seek the advice of your financial advisor and a registered broker-dealer before investing in any securities mentioned in our reports.

It is critical that you independently investigate and fully understand all risks before investing in any securities. We want to remind you again that Maximus is often paid editorial fees for its writing and the dissemination of material on publicly traded companies. The clients represented by Pinnacle Digest are typically exploration-stage or development-stage companies that pose a much higher risk to investors than established companies. When investing in speculative stocks of this nature, it is possible to lose your entire investment over time or even quickly.

In all biased reports published by Maximus pertaining to a publicly traded company (clients/sponsors of Maximus), our financial interest and compensation is disclosed at the bottom of the report. We will always disclose the amount we were paid to provide online advertisement coverage on a company and clearly state if we own shares in the company. You can also visit our “Disclosure & Compensation” page for more information pertaining to this.

All information on Pinnacle Digest regarding publicly traded companies’ market caps, stock prices and trading information was found via online sources and quotes. There are no guarantees that these figures are accurate or complete.
