Some Services are works in progress. We reserve the right to change or even eliminate them with no notice, at our sole discretion.
Except as expressly provided in these Terms and Conditions, members may only maintain one active registration with Sports Card Investor. Any other 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.

3. Affiliate Marketing Programs
We may be compensated by third parties whose products we review, list or promote. This compensation may impact where reviews and offers appear, with higher paying partners appearing higher on a page or in a more prominent position.
No reviews or promotion 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 Sports Card Investor 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 Sports Card Investor is done so at your own risk.
Please note that certain individual Services or products may have their own or additional, or may be hosted on a third-party platform that has its own or additional, terms, conditions and policies. Additionally, they may have their own policies for how they may use the information you provide to them. In the event of a conflict, the terms for the individual Service will control with respect to the Service in question. So please be sure to review any additional terms, conditions and policies with respect to any specific Service and third-party platforms before subscribing.
5. Articles and Advice from non-Sports Card Investor employees
Sports Card Investor often features content, including articles, posts, videos, interviews and chats, from or with non-Sports Card Investor employees on its Services, including but not limited to its SportsCardInvestor.com website, Sports Card Investor’s YouTube Channel, Discord Chat Server and Facebook Group. By putting together lots of information from a variety of sources, we hope to provide participants with a way to have fun and learn to make better investment decisions.
You should not assume that the opinions that people express in these articles, post, videos, interviews and chats are the opinions of Sports Card Investor or anything other than the opinions of the individuals expressing them.
When you look at other people’s content, you should remember that those people may have interests in the cards or products that they’re making predictions about. For example, some people may hope a card’s value will go up because they own it. When you review this content, you should not assume that the person making a prediction is unbiased or independent.

8. No Personalized Advice
We want to help you profit on sports cards. However, Sports Card Investor is not in the business of rendering personalized investment or financial 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 card, strategy, or action is suitable for you.
Sports Card Investor may partner with third parties in order to make buying sports card easier for you. But, we will not, and cannot, buy, sell or trade sports cards on your behalf. Only you can decide whether or not a sports card or any other product we promote or mention is right for you, and you agree to be liable for any purchase, sale, trade or investment decisions you make using tools that we or our partners provide.
9. You Bear Responsibility for Your Financial and Investment Decisions
The best person to evaluate sports cards and related products, make investment decisions, and handle your finances is you. By your use of our Services, you’re agreeing that you bear responsibility for your own sports card research and related research, investment research, buy/sell/trade decisions, and other investment decisions. You also agree that Sports Card Investor, its directors, its employees, and its agents will not be liable for the results of any buy/sell/trade decision and/or other investment decisions made or action taken by you and others based on news, information, opinion, or any other material published through our Services.
Let’s be honest, we’re wrong sometimes, so don’t ever act on our advice without doing your own research, assessing your own risk tolerance, understanding the market, and making your own decision.
10. Disclaimer of Warranties and Liabilities
Please read Sports Card Investor’s Disclaimer, which is incorporated herein by reference.
Sports Card Investor provides a broad range of data, information and commentary via its many Services. Consequently, as a result of the diverse opinions of our staff, data tools and Services, a Sports Card Investor Service may, from time to time, issue recommendations with regard to specific sports cards, products or strategies that are different from issued by prior Content or another Service we provide.

12. Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
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 email@example.com with your concern and Sports Card Investor will contact you via the email address we have on file for you.
If a Dispute cannot be resolved informally, we each agree that except as provided below, the Dispute will be submitted to final and binding arbitration before a panel of three arbitrators of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in Atlanta, Georgia. Either party may commence the arbitration process by submitting a written demand for arbitration with the AAA, and providing a copy to the other party. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the provisions of the AAA’s Commercial Dispute Resolutions Procedures, Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes, in effect at the time of submission of the demand for arbitration. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. You expressly agree to refrain from bringing or joining any claims in any representative or class-wide capacity, including but not limited to bringing or joining any claims in any class action or any class-wide arbitration.
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE YOUR CASE AND TO BE PARTY TO A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO HAVE ANY CLAIMS DECIDED INDIVIDUALLY AND ONLY THROUGH ARBITRATION.
