Investment Decisions:

Material contained in or accessible through this website is for information purposes only and is not intended to and does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy securities in any jurisdiction, nor should it be used for the purpose of making investment decisions with respect to WealthTerra approved securities. While the information presented in this website has been researched and is thought to be reasonable, in general, an investment in securities offered by Dan Houcher Financial Ltd. and WealthTerra is speculative, prices can go up but they can also go down, and thus DAN HOUCHER FINANCIAL LTD, WEALTHTERRA AND/OR ITS AGENTS CANNOT AND DO NOT GUARANTEE ANY RATE OF RETURN OR INVESTED AMOUNT OR INVESTMENT TIMELINE. You acknowledge and agree that Dan Houcher Financial Ltd, WealthTerra and/or its agents are not in the business of presenting themselves as experts but are only preliminary information providers. You should not rely on any opinion or other information set out in the website or any website accessible through this website when making business, financial, personal or other decisions. Dan Houcher Financial Ltd. and its service providers do not endorse the opinions of any third party expressed on the website or any website accessed through the website. Dan Houcher Financial Ltd. and WealthTerra are subject to the securities laws of various jurisdictions. Information disclosed or provided by Dan Houcher Financial Ltd. and WealthTerra pursuant to the securities laws of those jurisdictions is not intended to be in any way qualified, amended, modified or supplemented by the information otherwise available in, through, or on this website. Dan Houcher Financial Ltd. and WealthTerra do not assume any duty of disclosure beyond that which is required by applicable law.

Accuracy of Information:

While any information and material contained in the content are reasonably believed by Dan Houcher Financial Ltd. to be accurate and complete in all material respects at the time of posting, and although Dan Houcher Financial Ltd. makes reasonable efforts to ensure that all such information and material remain current, accurate and complete, Dan Houcher Financial Ltd. accepts no liability, responsibility or obligation whatsoever to post, update, amend, review or remove such information, material or the content or any portion thereof except as may be required by applicable law. You acknowledge that such facts, information and material may change quickly and without notice and that such changes will take time to be posted on the website, if they are posted at all. Dan Houcher Financial Ltd. may, at its sole discretion, post, delete and amend content without notice.

Forward Looking Statements:

Certain statements in this website or that of the Issuer, including assessments by management of Dan Houcher Financial Ltd. of future plans and operations, may constitute forward looking statements within the meaning of applicable securities laws. These forward-looking statements can generally be identified by words such as ‘believes’, ‘anticipates’, ‘expects’, ‘plans’, ‘estimates’ or words of a similar nature. The forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of Dan Houcher Financial Ltd. to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Such factors include, among others: risks associated with the ownership and operation of assets, including fluctuations in interest rates, energy prices; general economic conditions; local markets; supply and demand for products; competition for available assets that may have greater financial and capital resources than Dan Houcher Financial Ltd, WealthTerra or the Issuer of the security; credit and financial stability of the operators who operate the projects; changes in legislation and the regulatory environment; and international trade and global political conditions. The impact of any one factor on a particular forward-looking statement is not determinable with certainty as such factors are dependent upon other factors, and management’s course of action would depend upon its assessment of the future considering all information then available. These statements speak only as of the date of such information as the case may be, and may be superseded by subsequent events. Readers are cautioned that the foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. For further information on risks or any material assumptions utilized in making these forward-looking statements refer to the offering documents of each of the Issuers of the securities entities under the heading “Risk Factors”. Although Dan Houcher Financial Ltd. believes that the expectations conveyed by the forward-looking statements are reasonable based on information available to it on the date such forward-looking statements are made, no assurances can be given as to future results, levels of activity and achievements. All forward-looking statements, whether written or oral, attributable to Dan Houcher Financial Ltd. or persons acting on its behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by these cautionary statements. Dan Houcher Financial Ltd. assumes no obligation to update forward-looking statements should circumstances or management’s estimates or opinions change.

Exclusion of Liability:

Users are required to conduct their own investigations, analysis, due diligence, draw their own conclusions, and make their own decisions.

We keep your personal information only as long as it is required for the reasons it was collected. The length of time we retain information varies, depending on the product or service and the nature of the information. This period may extend beyond the end of your business relationship with us but it will only be for as long as it is necessary for us to have sufficient information to respond to any issues that may arise at a later date and to comply with applicable law and regulatory requirements.

Dan Houcher Financial Ltd. is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We endeavour to maintain physical, technical and procedural safeguards that are appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information in question. These safeguards are designed to prevent your personal information from loss and unauthorized access, copying, use, modification or disclosure.

Access to Your Personal Information

You may ask to see the personal information we have about you. A request to review your personal information must be made in writing to Dan Houcher Financial Ltd. or WealthTerra’s Privacy Officer.
