First things first: By using our Services, you’re agreeing to be bound by these terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions” or “Terms”) INCLUDING THE BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER DETAILED IN SECTION 13. These Terms govern your use and access to the website and all our Services. We may change these terms at any time, but we will post a notice on this website of any material changes. Your continued use of Horao and its Services means you accept any new or modified terms and conditions. So please check back here from time to time.
Some Services are work in progress. We reserve the right to change or even eliminate them with no notice at our sole discretion.
Except as precisely provided in these Terms and Conditions, members may only maintain one active registration with Horao. In other words, it's one registration per person. Any use of multiple accounts or aliases on our Services, including attempts to mislead, defraud, confuse, or otherwise trick us or our members, is a breach of these Terms and Conditions.
If you subscribe to one of our Premium Services, you will be asked to create a password, which you'll need to access the Service. Should you wish to post a message on the discussion boards or comment on an article or a blog, you'll also be required to use a username.
When subscribing to a Premium Service such as one of our recommendation packages, you will need to provide us with your name, email address, and your credit card information. You agree to pay the applicable subscription fee as set forth on this site. BY PLACING YOUR ORDER, YOU PROVIDE YOUR ELECTRONIC AUTHORIZATION FOR FUTURE CHARGES AGAINST YOUR CREDIT CARD ON FILE UNLESS YOU CANCEL.
You certify that all information you provide is accurate. You also agree to maintain and update your information as necessary so that it remains accurate and current. If any information you provide is inaccurate or not up to date, Horao reserves the right to cancel your subscription.
We reserve the right to refuse or discontinue the supply of a Service to any user at any time at our sole discretion.
Unless stated otherwise, membership to any Service is for online and/or electronic access only.
Our Services generally deliver their content via email, including trade alerts or recommendations, recent actionable investing guidance, and other important stock news. There is no opt-out choice available for these emails (unless you cancel your subscription).
Trial Terms, Automatic Billing and Cancellation Policy
Some Services may provide a free trial or introductory offer. If such an offer is provided, only one per person or household is allowed at any point in time. In addition, there is a limit of one trial per person and household in any six-month period, unless otherwise stated in the offer.
Upon signing up for a free trial, you will have access to the Service for the promotional trial period. If you cancel prior to the end of the promotional offer period, your credit card will not be charged. If you don't cancel your subscription within the trial offer period, we will charge the primary credit card you provided during the sign-up process. You may contact Member Support at firstname.lastname@example.org to end your trial enrolment.
Your membership will automatically renew at the then-current rate until you notify us of your decision to end your membership. Most subscriptions will renew for based on the specified terms. If you would like to turn off automatic renewal, or extend your subscription for additional years, please contact Member Support. BY ALLOWING FOR YOUR RENEWAL, YOU PROVIDE YOUR ELECTRONIC AUTHORIZATION FOR FUTURE CHARGES AGAINST YOUR CREDIT CARD ON FILE. Accordingly, you agree that your membership fee or subscription will be billed automatically at the beginning of each renewal period at the then-current rate (plus sales tax, if applicable) to the credit card you used in your most recent transaction with us.
Horao reserves the right to increase a Service's fees or institute new charges upon reasonable notice. Service fees are due in advance.
Different Services (and sometimes specific offers) have different refund policies (However, most of our services, including recommendations, offer no refunds). Please review the specific terms of your offer before signing up, as you are agreeing to be bound to those terms. If you are unsure of your cancellation rights, please contact Member Support.
Please note that most refunds are only available to first-time subscribers. If you subscribe to a Service that allows for refunds beyond 30 days, and cancel (and receive a refund) and then subscribe again, you will not receive a refund after the first 30 days.
Transfer; Discontinuing a Service
You cannot transfer your subscription to someone else, except through bequeathment or by a court order. In the event a subscription is transferred, it will continue through the end of its term and can be renewed at the then-current price and conditions. For help in this situation, please contact Member Services.
If we discontinue a Service, you agree Horao may transfer your subscription to another Service of equal or greater value.
Some of our services provide the option to transfer your credit towards a different Horao service. Depending on the terms of your purchase, you may be allowed to transfer the full or pro-rated credit from your purchase. Most services eligible for a credit transfer will allow a swap within 30 days of the initial purchase. There are services that do not allow for credit transfers of any kind.
If you are unsure whether your service is eligible for a credit transfer, please contact email@example.com.
All credit must be swapped at the list price of the product being transferred into, and it cannot be combined with any promotional offers or discounts. Members may use any available swap or refund once per service. If you take advantage of a money-back guarantee or a credit-transfer guarantee into a new subscription, you will no longer be eligible to perform further action with that credit.
If you take advantage of a credit transfer guarantee, please also note that you will lose access to any product(s) and benefits included in the original promotional offer, including additional services or reports that were included as a bonus for taking advantage of the offer.
From time to time, we offer report-style services, which are not renewable and require a one-time purchase. To qualify for a credit transfer into a report of this type, you must have enough credit to cover the full list price of the report.
When implementing a credit transfer, the term length of the service being transferred into cannot extend beyond three years.
If the list price of the service you would like to transfer into is more than the amount of credit you have, you will receive a partial term of the service - the usual automatic renewal notice will be emailed a month prior to the adjusted end-date.
If the amount of credit you have is higher than the list price of the service you would like to transfer into, the subscription will be extended for the proper time frame to match the rate.
Horao reserves the right to disallow transfer into certain services depending on insufficient credit, product openings, investment timelines, a member's history of transfers or prior refunds, or for any other reason, at Horao’s sole discretion.
We may be compensated by third parties whose products we review. This compensation may affect where reviews and offers appear, with higher paying partners appearing higher on a page or in a more prominent position. None of our brands can or does promise to be comprehensive with their reviews of any marketplace, and the companies covered may heavily tilt towards partners.
That being said, we take try to make sure that our editorial opinions are not affected by our compensation, and no partner or advertiser will review, edit, endorse, or approve editorial content. We also make sure that the editorial teams of any brand remain distinct from the editorial team writing content for Horao.net or our premium services.
No reviews of products or services should be construed as an endorsement or guarantee of any kind. We do the best we can to make sure that the information we rely upon for our reviews is true and current, but we cannot and will not warranty that it actually is, or that we have not been confused or misled before or after publication.
Any service or product not offered by Horao is subject to its own terms and conditions, including about how they may use the information you provide to them, which should be provided by the company through which you are receiving the product or service, and any use of a product or service not offered by Horao is done so at your own risk.
Please note that certain individual Services or products may have their own, or additional, terms and conditions. In the event of a conflict, the terms for the individual Service will control regarding the Service in question. So please be sure to review any additional terms and conditions with respect to any specific Service before subscribing.
Some portions of our site use Google Maps APIs, or other Google APIs. If you use those parts of our site, you are also bound by the Google Terms of Service. If you do not wish to be bound by these terms, or any of the terms contained within these rules, please do not use our site.
TELE-HORAO is Horao's service that allows you to make predictions about stocks, see others' predictions, aggregate community opinions, and track their accuracy. By putting together lots of information from a variety of sources, we hope to provide participants with a way to a) have fun and b) learn to make better investment decisions.
You should not assume that the opinions that people express in TELE-HORAO are the opinions of Horao or anything other than the opinions of the individuals expressing them.
When you look at other people's predictions, remember that those people may have interests in the stocks that they're making predictions about. For example, some people may hope a company's stock will go up because they own many shares of it; others may hope that it will rise because they (or their sister) work for the company. When you review people's predictions (or the stock tips you see on television or hear in the supermarket), you should not assume that the person making a prediction is unbiased or independent. One beauty of TELE-HORAO, though, is that you can see the performance of people's predictions over time and, we hope, distinguish sound analysis from self-serving nonsense.
Horao employees may take part in TELE-HORAO, and they may have interests in the stocks about which they make predictions. Any predictions made by Horao employees are their own. They are not speaking on behalf of our company, and these predictions are not Horao recommendations.
All the Content on our websites and any Service we provide is protected by U.S. and international copyright laws and is the property of Horao and/or providers of the content under licence. By "Content" we mean any information, mode of expression, or other materials and services found on Horao. This includes message boards, blogs, TELE-HORAO picks, ratings, podcasts, chats, software, our writings, graphics, videos, and all other features. You can find out more information on copyright law and the Internet at www.templetons.com/brad/copymyths.html.
You may make one copy of the Content for your personal, non-commercial use, provided that any material copied remains intact and includes the following notice: "Copyright 1995-2018 [or whatever the current year is] Horao. All rights reserved." Any other copying, distribution, storing, or transmission of any kind, or any commercial use of our Content, is prohibited without Horao's prior written permission. That means you may not sell, auction, transfer or barter your subscription or any individual publication. You can make or end your own TELE-HORAO picks at any time, but those picks and data aggregated by TELE-HORAO remain the property of Horao.
You also may not republish, post, transmit, or distribute the Content to online bulletin and message boards, blogs, chat rooms, intranets, or anywhere else without our consent. Likewise, you further agree not to create abstracts from or scrape our Content, including TELE-HORAO ratings, for use on another website or service (including our own personal forums and blogs). In short, you may not post our Content anywhere else online. Aside from opening yourself up to liability, distributing our premium Services, stock picks, and performance data to other sites and forums is unfair to our members who pay good money to receive our Content. So please don't do it.
Please note that notwithstanding the foregoing, when you post content (such as a message-board post or TELE-HORAO pitch), you are not somehow surrendering your copyright in your expression, but you are granting us an unlimited licence to use it. Specifically, by posting content, you agree Horao has an irrevocable, perpetual, and worldwide licence to use republish, distribute, reproduce, display, communicate to the public, adapt, perform, store, translate, sub-license, and promote anything you post on our websites. This includes the rights to syndicate and make derivative works out of your content. If you don't want us to use or republish your content, then please don't post it on our websites. We'll only republish your content in context, and we'll credit you as author (unless we're using small quotations). We won't republish your posts for advertising without your permission.
We also ask that you only upload or include on our Services materials you have the right to use. While we don’t mind if John Doe posts photos he’s taken on our platform, we do ask that he not repost images he’s already sold or licensed to The Daily News. If you have a good faith belief that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please notify our Copyright Agent.
You agree not to display any of Horao's trademarks or use them in any manner without our express written permission.
Horao champions active and open debate among our members. All we ask is that it's done in a lawful and civil manner — be it posting on our boards, commenting on blogs or articles, replying to TELE-HORAO pitches, or using our system to contact a fellow member in any way.
Accordingly, you agree to use Horao for lawful purposes only. You may not use or allow others to use your Horao membership to:
Unauthorized access to our sites is a breach of these Terms and Conditions and a violation of the law. You agree not to access our sites by any means other than through the interfaces we provide for our accessing our sites.
Horao may at any time, without prior notice and at our sole discretion, remove any post, terminate any membership, or take any action for violating the above (and, if we may say so, sensible) provisions or otherwise taking an action disruptive to a Service. In the event TMF terminates your premium Service, you will receive a prorated refund at our discretion.
You are responsible for statements made and actions taken through the use of your password, so please maintain the confidentiality of your password. You agree to immediately notify Member Support of any actual or suspected unauthorized use of your username and password. We will not be responsible for any loss to you arising from unauthorized use of your data.
We want to help you make money. However, Horao is not in the business of rendering personalized investment advice. We can't know all the relevant facts about you and your individual needs, and we cannot claim or represent that any particular Services are suitable for you. Accordingly, you agree that any recommendation or action taken by a Service does not constitute a recommendation that a particular security, strategy, or action is suitable for you. If you want personal advice, then you should seek a registered investment advisor.
Horao may partner with third parties in order to make buying our Services' recommendations easier for you. We will not, and cannot, trade on your behalf at your brokerage. Only you can decide whether a stock is right for you, and you agree to be liable for any trades you initiate at your brokerage using tools that we or our partners provide.
Affiliates of Horao provide individualized investment advice and investment products. These companies may recommend or hold securities mentioned in our publications. Editorial personnel have no non-public knowledge of our affiliates' holdings and/or specific recommendations, and the affiliates’ personnel have no knowledge of any editorial content before it is published.
One of the principal tenets here at Horao is that the best person to handle your finances is you. By your use of our Services, you're agreeing that you bear responsibility for your own investment research and investment decisions. You also agree that Horao, its directors, its employees, and its agents will not be liable for any investment decision made or action taken by you and others based on news, information, opinion, or any other material published through our Services.
Horao provides a very broad range of information and commentary via its many Services. Consequently, as a result of the diverse opinions of our staff, a Horao Service may, from time to time, take actions or issue recommendations with regard to specific securities that differ from those taken or issued by another Service we provide.
Horao does not warrant the completeness or accuracy of the Content found in our Services or its usefulness for any particular purpose. And although we have the hard-working, most talented techies in the business, Horao makes no promises that our content or any of the Services will be delivered to you on an uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error-free basis. In fact, we're not making any promises or warranties except that we'll do our best to provide interesting and helpful information, education, and entertainment. Other than that, we reserve the right to be wrong.
Horao relies on various sources of information that we believe to be accurate and reliable. There are also literally tens of contributors here — most, we believe, with incredibly interesting and insightful information and opinions to share. But we can't and won't take responsibility for, or make any claims or representations about, the accuracy, completeness, or even the truth of every bit of data, information, and opinion provided through our Services. Remember: All information and content provided on or by Horao is to be used on an "as is, with all faults, we're not perfect" basis.
Obligatory Capitalized Disclaimers of Liability:

NEITHER WE NOR ANY OF OUR PARTNERS MAKES ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF TITLE OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WITH RESPECT TO OUR WEBSITES, ANY CONTENT, OR ANY OF OUR SERVICES, TOOLS, PRODUCTS, OR PROPERTIES. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOU WILL ASSUME THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND THE PERFORMANCE OF OUR SERVICES AND THE ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF THEIR CONTENT.

You hereby acknowledge and consent that such notices will be effective upon our posting them on our websites or sending them to you via email (another reason to please keep your account settings current). If you do not provide us with accurate information, we cannot be held liable if we fail to notify you.
If a dispute arises in connection with your use of our Services or in relation to any of these Terms (collectively, “Disputes”) our hope is that we can resolve the matter informally. Accordingly, in the event of a Dispute, we agree to first contact each other via email with a description of the Dispute and any proposed resolution. You will email firstname.lastname@example.org with your concern, and Horao will contact you via the email address we have on file for you.
You acknowledge and agree that by agreeing to these Terms electronically; you expressly agree to the terms set forth herein. You acknowledge that your electronic submission constitutes your agreement and intent to be bound by these Terms and Conditions.
If any provision in these Terms and Conditions is found to be invalid, unenforceable, or nonsensical, the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.
Our Services are directed to Internet Users across the world. Except as otherwise expressly stated in these Terms and Conditions, there are no third-party beneficiaries to this agreement.
These Terms and Conditions, including those that are incorporated by reference, constitute the entire and only agreement between you and Horao and govern your use of our sites.
