Material Connections And Compensation Disclosure Policy

You should always do your own research and investigate any and all products and services before buying them from anyone via the internet. This includes products and services sold on this Site and all other websites.

Material Connection

Unless stated otherwise, you should assume that all references, links, or mentions of products and services on Advocate are made because there is a relationship or material connection that exists between the website’s owner(s) (“Owner”) and the providers of the products and services mentioned (“Provider”).

Good Faith Recommendations

The Owner recommends products and services based in part on a good faith belief that the purchase, use, and application of the recommended products and services will generally help those who purchase them. The Owner has this good faith belief because:

    1    The Owner has tried and used the product prior to the recommendation, or

    2    The Owner has researched the product and the reputation of the Provider, and is recommending the Provider’s product or services based on the Provider’s history of offering, producing, or providing these or other services or products.

The representations made by the Owner about the products and services reflect the Owner’s honest opinion based on the facts known to the Owner at the time a service or product is mentioned on Advocate.

Potential Bias And Due Diligence

The opinion about a product or service that the Owner expresses may be formed partially (either consciously or subconsciously) on the fact that the Owner has or will be compensated because of the Owner’s business relationships with the Providers.

Sometimes the Owner and a Provider has a business or personal relationship that does not involve the Owner receiving compensation related to products and services mentioned on Advocate. However, the nature of the relationship is enough to establish a material connection between the Owner and the Provider.

Because of the material connection that may exist between the Owner and Providers of services and products that are mentioned and/or featured on Advocate, you should always assume the Owner may be biased because of the Owner’s relationship with a Provider and/or because the Owner has received or will receive something of value from a Provider.

Do your own research before purchasing a product or service mentioned on Advocate.

Compensation

How the Owner is compensated may vary. For example, the Owner may receive services, money, free products, or other benefits prior to mentioning the Provider’s products or services on Advocate.

External Links Policy

Advocate contains hypertext links to websites and other information created and maintained by other individuals and organizations. These links are provided for your convenience. We do not control or guarantee the accuracy, relevance, quality, completeness, or timeliness of any information or privacy policies posted on the websites Advocate links to. Be aware that it is very likely these websites track visitors and their viewing habits.

Unless we state otherwise, links to particular items do not reflect their importance, and are not an endorsement of the individuals or organizations who sponsor the websites, the views or opinions expressed on the websites, or the products or services offered on the websites.

We allow links to our website if they do not imply an endorsement by, or affiliation with, Advocate absent written consent. If we operate an affiliate program, our affiliates may link to our website pursuant to the terms and conditions of our affiliate agreement with them.

We occasionally review Advocate for broken or otherwise outdated links. Any and all links may be posted, altered, or removed at any time without notice. In addition, links to external websites may expire over time. If links to external websites expire, it is beyond our control. If you wish to report problems with links to our website, or for more information about this policy and how it affects you, please reach out via the CONTACT tab.

Health And Earnings Disclaimers

Advocate may reference health-related products and/or services. Advocate may also refer to business opportunities, other money-making opportunities, or marketing strategies and tactics. If any such content exists on this website, the following disclaimers apply.

You understand and agree that there are important risk factors that should be considered by you when deciding whether to purchase products or services from Advocate. The following disclaimers apply to the extent Advocate, our products or services, and/or our communications with you refer to income, earnings, making money, or health-related (physical and/or mental matters).

No Earnings Projections, Promises, or Representations

You recognize and agree that we have made no implications, warranties, promises, suggestions, projections, guarantees, or representations of any kind to you about future earnings or prospects, or that you will earn any money, with respect to your purchase of Advocate products, and that we have not authorized any such projection, promise, or representation by others.

Any earnings or income statements, or any earnings or income examples, are only estimates of what we think someone could earn. There is no guarantee or assurance you will do as well as stated in any examples, or that you will make anything at all. If you rely upon any figures provided, you must accept the entire risk of not doing as well as the information provided. This applies whether the earnings or income examples are monetary in nature or pertain to advertising credits which may be earned (whether such credits are convertible to cash or not).

Past performance is no guarantee of future results for you in terms of monetary compensation, or advertising credits, convertible to cash or not, nor can any prior successes be used as an indication of your future success or results from any of the information, content, or strategies contained within Advocate. Any and all income or earnings or income claimed or represented are not to be considered as “common earnings” or “average earnings”.

1.) The Economy. There are any number of factors which can determine success or lack of success. The economy, where you do business, national and worldwide economic trends and conditions, create additional uncertainty and economic risk. An economic recession, depression, or other economic event might negatively impact the results you are able to obtain by using Advocate products or services.

2.) Your Success Or Your Lack Of Success. Your success in using the information, products, strategies, or services offered by Advocate depend on a number of factors. There is no way we can know how well you will do, as your success is at least in part dependent on your background, your work ethic, your dedication, your diligence, your perseverance, your desire, or your business skills or practices. Therefore, we do not guarantee or imply that you will make any money, that you will get rich, that you will do as well, or that you will do anything at all.

Internet businesses, internet marketing, and earnings derived from internet activities, involve risks that are unknowable in advance and are not suitable for everyone. You may not rely on any information presented on Advocate or otherwise provided by us, unless you do so knowing and understanding that you may experience significant losses (including, but not limited to, the loss of any monies paid to purchase Advocate products and/or services, and/or any monies spent setting up, operating, and/or marketing Advocate products, and further, that you may have no earnings at all).

3.) Forward-Looking Statements. MATERIALS CONTAINED ON Advocate OR IN MATERIALS PURCHASED AND/OR DOWNLOADED FROM THIS WEBSITE MAY CONTAIN INFORMATION INCLUDING OR BASED UPON FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS WITHIN THE MEANING OF THE SECURITIES LITIGATION REFORM ACT OF 1995. FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS GIVE OUR EXPECTATIONS OR FORECASTS OF FUTURE EVENTS. YOU WILL BE ABLE TO IDENTIFY THESE STATEMENTS BY THE FACT THAT THEY DO NOT RELATE STRICTLY TO HISTORICAL OR CURRENT FACTS. THEY USE WORDS SUCH AS “ANTICIPATE”, “EXPECT”, “INTEND”, “BELIEVE”, “ESTIMATE”, “PROJECT”, “PLAN”, AND OTHER WORDS AND TERMS WITH SIMILAR MEANINGS IN CONNECTION WITH A DESCRIPTION OF POTENTIAL EARNINGS OR FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE.

ANY AND ALL FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS HERE, IN OTHER MATERIALS CONTAINED ON THIS WEBSITE OR IN MATERIALS PURCHASED AND/OR DOWNLOADED FROM Advocate ARE INTENDED TO EXPRESS OUR OPINION OF EARNINGS POTENTIAL. MANY FACTORS WILL BE IMPORTANT IN DETERMINING THE RESULTS YOU ACTUALLY ACHIVE AND WE MAKE NO GUARANTEES THAT YOU WILL ACHIVE RESULTS SIMILAR TO OURS OR ANYBODY ELSE, AND WE IN NO WAY GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE ANY RESULTS FROM OUR IDEAS, CONCEPTS, STRATEGIES, OR TECHNIQUES IN OUR MATERIAL.

4.) Due Diligence. You are advised to do your own research (due diligence) when it comes to making business decisions. You should be cautious and seek professional advice. you should check with your accountant, lawyer, professional advisor, or other professional before taking action on this or any other information. You may not consider anything on this website, be it an example, a document, or any other content on Advocate or otherwise provided by us to be the equivalent of professional advice. Nothing contained on the website or in materials available for sale or download on the website provides professional advice in any way. You should consult with your own accountant, lawyer, or professional advisor for any questions.

We do not assume responsibility for any losses or damages resulting from your use of any link, information, or opportunity contained within the website or within any information disclosed by the owner of this site in any form whatsoever.

5.) Purchase Price. We believe the prices set for the products and services offered on Advocate are fair given the value you receive, but you should understand and agree that the purchase price for Advocate products and services has been set arbitrarily. This price does not bear any relationship to objective standards.

Health Disclaimers

Any references to physical or mental health on Advocate is solely an educational service consisting of general health information. The materials provided on Advocate are provided “as-is”, and there are no warranties of any kind, express or implied.

1.) Not A Substitute For Professional Medical Advice Or Treatment. Advocate’s content is not a substitute for direct, personal, professional medical care and diagnosis. None of the exercises or treatments (including products and services) mentioned at Advocate should be performed or otherwise used without first consulting your physician or health care provider. The information contained within is not intended to provide specific physical or mental health advice, or any other advice whatsoever, for any individual or company and should not be relied upon in that way. We are not medical professionals. Nothing on this website should be misunderstood or misconstrued to mean otherwise.

2.) Health Risks. There may be risks associated with participating in activities mentioned on Advocate for people in poor health or with pre-existing mental or physical conditions. If you are in poor health or have a pre-existing mental or physical condition, you will not participate in such activities due to these risks. If you make the decision to participate in these risks, you do so of your own free will and accord, knowingly and voluntarily assume all risks associated with such activities.

3.) Accuracy And Completeness. Facts and information are believed to be accurate at the time they were placed in Advocate. Any and all data provided or found on this website is for informational purposes only. Products and services described are only offered in jurisdictions where they may be legally offered.

Testimonials, Case Studies, And Examples

Testimonials, case studies, and examples found at Advocate represent exceptional results, and do not reflect the average buyer’s experience. These testimonials, case studies, and examples do not apply to the average person, and are not intended to represent or guarantee that anyone will achieve the same or similar results. If we disclose the typical results based on manufacturer or reputable third party sources, you should presume that the results stated by those sources are more reliable than those testimonials and examples found at Advocate.

As always, you should perform your own research and not take results at face value–whether provided by Advocate, or by a manufacturer, vendor, or other trusted third party source. We are not responsible for any errors or omissions in typical results information supplied to us by manufacturers or other reputable third parties.

If we refer to specific income or earnings (be they monetary or otherwise), the figures used and attributed to a specific individual or business have been earned by that individual or business. There is no assurance that you will do as well using the same information or strategies. If you rely on the specific income or earnings figures used, you must accept all the risk of not doing as well as the companies or individuals cited. As mentioned elsewhere in this document, the described experiences are not experiences achieved by the average individual or business. Your financial results are likely to differ from those described in the testimonials.

If a product or service is new, you understand that it may not have been available for purchase long enough to provide an accurate earnings history.
