We may change these terms at any time, but we will post a notice in advance on this website of any material changes. Your continued use of Viking Crest and its Services means that you accept any new or modified terms and conditions. So please check back here from time to time.

Some Services, like our simulated stock picking and portfolio management tools, are works in progress. We reserve the right to change or even eliminate them with no notice, at our sole discretion.

Also, if you forget your password, you can have it retrieved via email simply by going to the "Forgot Your Password" link.
