3. Non-Association Disclaimer
Released: June 16, 2015
In the name Analytics.GA, “.GA” is a TOP-LEVEL DOMAIN extension that can be used by anyone willing to register it and put online a website using “.ga” as the top-level domain. Analytics.GA is a consultancy providing analytics consulting and implementation services in the digital analytics industry. It does not have its own analytics platform or software and relies on other vendors to provide a platform for the purpose of data collection, segmentation, analysis and forecasting. In this regard, Google Analytics™ happens to be one of Analytics.GA’s platforms of choice.
Due to the nature of the Internet, communication in abbreviations and informal words is commonplace. This is especially true in the web analytics industry that serves companies using the Internet as their primary medium for consumer interaction. In this industry, the abbreviation “GA” has come to be informally used to refer to Google Analytics. Analytics.GA disclaims any affiliation with or endorsement by Google Inc.
Analytics.GA does not, and will never, in the future, try to leverage Google’s brand name to market itself or to generate any benefit for itself. The only circumstances where there can be any co-branding is if the two firms end up becoming Associates or sign a Formal Partnering Agreement, which, as of the time this is released, is NOT the case.
With the release of this disclaimer here, Analytics.GA will no longer entertain any of these – intimation or legal notices in the matter, notices from patenting or trademarking authorities in the matter, notices from internet authorities in the matter, client or customer complaints stating they were not informed about this non-association between the firms. No messages, lawsuits or court summons stating that Analytics.GA or any of its staff is answerable to the law because they have misused another company’s name and/or branding will ever be tolerated.
In other words, you have been informed, of what was viewed as necessary.
4. Forward Looking Earnings Disclaimer

However, despite the potential to run profitable businesses on the strength of good analytics, there is no guarantee that you will earn any money using the procedures, techniques and ideas presented by Analytics.GA. Examples in these materials are not to be interpreted as a promise or guarantee of earnings. Earning potential is entirely dependent on the person using our procedures, ideas and techniques. Analytics.GA does not purport its services as get-rich schemes.
Any claims made of actual earnings or examples of actual earnings can only be verified by an existing/former client of Analytics.GA – on request – and whether to fulfill such requests or not is a decision that will be subject to the discretion of the Director/Chief Analyst at Analytics.GA. The person making this decision is granted authority to deny the request without citing any reason. Your level of success in attaining the results claimed in our materials depends on the time you devote to implementing the procedures, ideas and techniques mentioned, your finances, knowledge and various skills. Since these factors differ according to individuals, Analytics.GA cannot guarantee your success or income level. Nor is it responsible for any of your actions.
Materials in Analytics.GA’s services and website may contain information that includes or is based upon forward-looking statements that have a meaning applicable within cautious limits. Forward-looking statements give our expectations or forecasts of future events.

They use words such as “anticipate”, “estimate”, “expect”, “project”, “intend”, “plan”, “believe”, and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with a description of potential earnings or financial performance.
Any and all forward looking statements here or on any of Analytics.GA’s Attributes and sales material are intended to express its opinion of earnings potential.

Analytics.GA provides recommendations to its clients based on analysis of their business and marketing data. These recommendations are meant to help the client decide which direction to steer their business and marketing in. Beyond that, what decision a client makes and how they decide to service their customers is entirely their choice. Any consequences to their customers and clients, arising out of the use of their goods and services can not be attributed back to Analytics.GA.
Secondly, if any of Analytics.GA’s associates or affiliates are involved in promoting it or extending Analytics.GA’s services to a third party, then consequences due to the services given by the assocoiate or affiliate cannot be attributed back to Analytics.GA. There are standards that they would have to follow, the details of which depend on their agreement with Analytics.GA, but beyond that, what they do at the customer end is in their control and hence their responsibility.
Analytics.GA disclaims all responsibility for the impact of business decisions taken by its Clients, Associates and Affiliates, which affect their clients, associates, affiliates and customers.
All our clients and associates are welcome to use our recommendations without inhibitions, as long as they have thought the matter through, evaluated all possible consequences, and are confident that there are no external factors that were not part of the analysis, or unforeseen changes that happened and were not part of the consideration for recommendations given by Analytics.GA, as those things are generally prime causes for undesired repercussions.
