User types and registration
There are three types of users of the Site:
Third-party websites and content
The Site may contain (or you may be sent via the Site) links to other websites (“Third Party Websites”) as well as articles, photographs, text, graphics, pictures, designs, music, sound, video, information, applications, software, and other content or items belonging to or originating from third parties (“Third-Party Content”). Such Third-Party Websites and Third-Party Content are not investigated, monitored or checked for accuracy, appropriateness, or completeness by us, and we are not responsible for any Third-Party Websites accessed through the Site or any Third-Party Content posted on, available through, or installed from the Site. Inclusion of, linking to, or permitting the use or installation of any Third-Party Websites or any Third-Party Content does not imply approval or endorsement thereof by us.
Securities products and investment risk
By accessing and using the Site you may gain access to information about certain unregistered private securities products. Customers of the Site will be able to create listings to sell, and bids to buy, such products. Investing in unregistered private securities is highly speculative involving a high degree of risk. Unregistered private securities are inherently illiquid and there is no guarantee that a market will be available for them. Accordingly, investment in these securities is appropriate only for those investors who can tolerate a high degree of risk, can withstand a total loss of investment, and do not require liquidity of their investment.
Nothing on the Site should be considered by you to be a “recommendation” to invest in any security, or to buy or sell unregistered securities generally.
Term and termination
Modifications and interruptions
By accessing the Site, you agree as follows:
No person shall bring a putative or certified class action to arbitration, nor seek to enforce any predispute arbitration agreement against any person who has initiated in court a putative class action; or who is a member of a putative class who has not opted out of the class with respect to any claims encompassed by the putative class action until: (i) the class certification is denied; or (ii) the class is decertified; or (iii) the customer is excluded from the class by the court. Such forbearance to enforce an agreement to arbitrate shall not constitute a waiver of any rights under this Agreement except to the extent stated herein.
Any dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or any alleged breach thereof, shall be settled by binding and non-appealable arbitration to be administered by the FINRA dispute resolution process in New York, New York, in accordance with its rules then in effect, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
