We do not provide the Advisors with your personal information, such as your real name or email address, but may forward your nickname, date of birth and/or gender in connection with facilitating the Service. We do not guarantee the accuracy of an answer or any other advice exchanged.
WE PROHIBIT DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL CONTACT INFORMATION TO OTHER USERS, INCLUDING CLIENTS AND ADVISORS. THIS INCLUDES, BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO, PHONE NUMBERS, ADDRESSES, AND E-MAIL ADDRESSES.
