A: I hope you will find that your time and money will be profitably spent in this course; but I want to add that the purpose of this course is to provide illustrative examples and discussions in value investing only, and not to supply practical ideas for stock market operations. I assume no responsibility for anything said along the latter lines in this course.

Q: Can I email you my personal queries on the lessons?
A: A large number of people subscribing to The Safal Niveshak Mastermind is quite a compliment to Safal Niveshak, but it also poses something of a problem. I shall not be able to handle this course on an informal or round-table basis, and thus won’t be taking up one-on-one questions by email.

However, I would like to welcome as much discussion and questions on the The Safal Niveshak Mastermind Forum, but I shall have to reserve the right to cut short discussion or not to answer questions in the interest of getting along with the course. You understand my problem, I am sure.

Q: What will be the duration of my Safal Niveshak Mastermind subscription?
A: The lessons will be delivered to your email over a period of 8 months. However, you will have access to the Mastermind site for 1.5 years. So you can download all lesson PDCs from there during this period. After this 1.5 year period, you will not have access to any files if you have not already downloaded them to your personal computer.

Q: How frequently would I receive the value investing lessons?
A: You will receive one value investing lesson in a span of 4-5 days for the duration of the course, which will be around 8 months.

Q: What will be the format of the lessons?

Q: How will I know of a new lesson or content?
A: You will get intimation for each update/lesson through email.

Q: What will be the language used?
A: The entire course will be in English language. I will try to make the communication as simple as possible, so you don’t face any hassle while understanding the language used.

Q: Can I share the content with others?
A: Please don’t! The Safal Niveshak Mastermind is a members-only course, and thus private to just the members who have paid to access the course and the forum. Please do not share your access details with others, neither share the content with anyone else.

Q: Is it purely an online course or will there be any offline interaction?
A: This is purely an online course. There won’t be any face-to-face interaction.

Q: How do I cancel and/or get a refund?
A: Sorry but there are no refunds for the course as you will get access to all lessons as soon as your Mastermind account is created. Rest assured that the quality of the course would not lead you to seek refund anyways. 🙂

Q: Can I see other members and interact with them?
A: You can do it through The Safal Niveshak Mastermind Forum.

Q: How do I open a PDC file?
A: After you subscribe for the first time, you will receive an email with the subject line “LockLizard Safeguard Secure PDF Viewer Registration”. The email has the instructions on how to install the Viewer and register your license. Once you successfully complete those two tasks, you will be able to open the PDC file. You will need to be online to do the registration.

Q: What is a PDC file?
A: A PDC file is proprietary encapsulation of a .pdf file, created through licensed software from LockLizard. It has a .pdc file extension to identify it. The content of a PDC file is the Mastermind lesson or other content which you are expecting to receive.

Q: Do I have to be connected to the Internet to view an edition?
A: You must be connected when you initialize your license. And you may have to be connected the first time you open a specific PDC file. In other situations, a grace period may apply during which time you may not need Internet connectivity.

Q: Can I copy text from the Mastermind lessons?
A: No, it is not possible to copy and paste Mastermind content.

Q: Can I give my license to somebody else?
A: No. Licenses are personalized. And once you have initialized an individual license, it cannot be used on any other machine. If you need to view the Mastermind course on more than two computers (home and work, for example), you must request and receive extra licenses.

Q: I received a new computer (or my computer has been re-imaged) and now I’m getting an error message regarding licensing saying that no more licenses are available.
A: LockLizard licenses are tied to the PC on which it was activated. If you change your PC, your license may not be valid. If this happens, contact and ask for a replacement license.

Q: I tried registering on my notebook computer as well as my desktop, but I receive the error message: “no more licenses”.
A: You are only licensed to view the edition on two computers. You may contact for information about obtaining additional licenses.

Q: Can I print Mastermind content?
A: Mastermind subscriptions include print authorizations for up to two copies of each lesson.

Q: Whom should I contact if I need help in accessing the course?
A: Always feel free to email if you have questions or problems with respect to the course delivery. Also write in case you have a general question on the course and did not find the answer on this page.
