3. Your Communications to FMG Suite via the Sites

Except for any personally identifiable information we may collect from you under the guidelines established in our Privacy Policy (located at www.fmgsuite.com/privacy-policy and incorporated by reference herein) any material, information or other communication you transmit, upload or post to the Sites will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary. By posting such communications to any part of the Sites, you automatically grant, and you represent and warrant that you have the right to grant, to FMG Suite a royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, fully-paid, worldwide license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, modify, perform, publish, display, reformat, translate, excerpt (in whole or in part) and distribute such information and content and to prepare derivative works of, or incorporate into other works, such information and content, in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed, and to grant and authorize sublicenses of the foregoing. You also represent and warrant that the holder of any rights in such content, including intellectual property rights, has completely and effectively waived all such rights and validly and irrevocably granted to you the right to grant the license stated above.

You may not forge headers or otherwise manipulate identifiers in order to disguise the origin of any message or transmittal you send to FMG Suite on or through the Sites. You may not pretend that you are any other individual or entity, or misrepresent your authority to represent any entity.

If you provide any feedback, recommendations for improvements or features of the Sites or any FMG Suite products or services, implementation of that feedback or recommendation is owned by FMG Suite and may become part of our Sites, products and services without compensation to you.

4. Links to Third Party Websites

Links to third party websites on the Sites are provided as a convenience to you. Such third party websites are not owned or operated by FMG Suite, and FMG Suite does not assume any responsibility or liability for these third party websites or for any communications or materials available through such third party websites. All third party websites have separate privacy and data collection policies and practices, independent of FMG Suite. FMG Suite has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions and is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of External Sites.

THE SITES AND THE MATERIALS, INFORMATION, SERVICES, AND PRODUCTS IN THE SITES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, TEXT, GRAPHICS, AND LINKS, ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” AND WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE PURSUANT TO APPLICABLE LAW, FMG SUITE DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, FREEDOM FROM COMPUTER VIRUS, AND WARRANTIES ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE.

6. Limitation of Liability

IN NO EVENT WILL FMG SUITE BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL, DAMAGES, OR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, EVEN IF FMG SUITE HAS BEEN PREVIOUSLY ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, WHETHER IN AN ACTION UNDER CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER THEORY, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE, INABILITY TO USE, OR PERFORMANCE OF THE INFORMATION, SERVICES, PRODUCTS, AND MATERIALS AVAILABLE FROM THE SITES. THESE LIMITATIONS APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY. BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

Distill Your Niche

"...while they can’t turn back the clock and address these issues beforehand - such as increasing their spouse’s life insurance or saving more - there are ways to take control and feel more confident in their future.
When working with widows, there are a few first steps I recommend taking:

1. Get Organized
Whether or not you handled all of your family’s finances, some, or none, the first step is to organize your financial documents.

You’ll want to copy and safeguard your important documents and review life insurance policies with a trusted advisor.

2. Budget for a Single Income

Unique Articles in Your Voice

"...More than likely, you have a clear understanding of your relationship with your doctor or your dentist. You pay a fee and, in return, you receive a service, including advice and recommendations based on your individual situation. It would make sense then for your relationship with your financial advisor to be the same; but for many, that’s not the case.

At Financial Guideposts, we’ve noticed a trend: that the general public does not understand the relationship they have with their financial advisor. We want to change that. We believe there are two critical aspects you should understand when working with a financial advisor: how he or she gets paid and what services he or she provides..."
