Non-disclosure of confidential information
Subscriber agrees to all of the terms of the Club Nondisclosure Agreement detailed here.
PIC Related Companies strict Code of Ethics / Code of Conduct
To avoid conflicts of interest and demonstrate neutrality and trustworthiness, PIC Related Companies adhere to a strict code of ethics to itself at all times.
Many other sites (and investment clubs) have significant conflicts of interest, that compromise their neutrality, trustworthiness, integrity and usefulness. To avoid this, we agree to restrict ourselves to the following code.
No money will ever be accepted from an investment sponsor or platform for anything, including the following:
No money for guides, tutorials, reviews or postings (or any content in them, or to modify or delete them).
No money for introducing or connecting investors to them or their deals.
No money for users who click on links that go to their sites.
No money for advertising on the site.
Additionally, the private investor club may negotiate better financial terms on deals for the benefit of the members investing in them. No special financial terms will be negotiated for myself above and beyond what members receive.
For clarity: I do receive monetary compensation in 2 ways. Site members can send donations (and a $200 donation entitles them to access my personal low-level due diligence notes on investments I've put money into). And if the club chooses to create a feeder, I take a fee as manager (and keep the excess beyond expenses).
Additionally I receive non-monetary compensation (which all club members also enjoy): access to otherwise inaccessible sponsors, millions of dollars of special deals and discounts, the satisfaction of giving back and helping others, etc.
Club members may not solicit in the club (nor post comments on threads on which they have a financial conflict of interest). Members that do will have their membership revoked and may have their service or product blackballed. The one exception is in the "marketplace" category of the club which does allow soliciting.
