The following is a non-exclusive list of registered and non-registered service marks of QMERIT or its subsidiaries, in the United States and/or other countries or jurisdictions:
QMERIT, QMERIT and Design, The QMERIT Logo. To the extent a name, logo or design does not appear on the above list, such lack of appearance does not constitute a waiver of any intellectual property rights that QMERIT has established in its product or service names or logos, or in product configurations or designs, all of which rights are expressly reserved.
8. By Providing Content, We Do Not Allow You to Use Our Servicemarks
The service marks and logos of QMERIT used and displayed on our Web site are our registered and unregistered trademarks.

Requests to use trademarks owned by other companies which may be mentioned on this Web site should be directed to such other companies. We aggressively enforce our intellectual property rights. The name of QMERIT or our logo may not be used in any way, including in advertising or publicity pertaining to distribution of materials on our Web site, without prior written permission.

9. We Are Not Providing Investment Advice Nor Soliciting Offers
Nothing in this site constitutes investment advice, including our SEC filings. We provide investor relations materials for your convenience and information only. In addition, investor relations materials and our other Web site content are not offers to sell or solicitations of an offer to buy any security.
All investors should know that there are “ups” and “downs” in every business and stock. There are no guarantees about the future performance of the stock market or our stock. Before you invest in any security, you can protect yourself by being an educated investor.
10. Investors Should Not Rely on Forward-Looking Information
Some of the statements on our Web Site, including those relating to projected future financial performance or events, are considered forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws, specifically the Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements give our expectations or forecasts of future events. Sometimes these statements will use words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “outlook,” “forecast,” and other similar words. These statements are not guarantees of our future performance and are subject to risks, uncertainties and other important factors that could cause our actual performance to be materially different from those we project.
Our actual results will be different due to the inherent nature of projections and may be better or worse than projected. Given these uncertainties, you should not rely on forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements also represent our estimates and assumptions only as of the date that they initially were made. We expressly disclaim a duty to provide updates to any forward-looking statements, and the estimates and assumptions associated with them, to reflect events or circumstances or changes in expectations or the occurrence of anticipated events after the date they initially were made.
