ABOUT THE FELLOWSHIP OF INFORMAL INVESTORS AND THESE TERMS OF USE

Fellowship of Informal Investors B.V. has its registered office at Prinses Margrietplantsoen 33, 2595 AM, in The Hague, Netherlands. The Platform is owned by Fellowship of Informal Investors B.V.

These Terms of Use govern your use of the Fellowship of Informal Investors website, and any other channel we may use in addition, further: ‘the Platform’. In these Terms of Use, we use the terms ‘we’, ‘us’ and ‘our’ to refer to Fellowship of Informal Investors B.V. at the registered address above.

Please read these Terms of Use carefully before using the Platform. By using the Platform, you signify your assent and agreement to these Terms of Use. If you do not agree to these Terms of Use, then you are not authorized to continue use of the Platform.

UPDATES OF THESE TERMS OF USE

From time to time we may make changes to these Terms of Use without prior notice, so please check back regularly to keep informed of updates. The latest version of these Terms of Use will always be available on the Platform. Any new version of these Terms of Use shall take effect and will govern the use of the Platform and your relationship with us immediately upon the date of posting. By continuing to use the Platform, you agree to be bound by the terms of these updates and amendments.

OUR PRIVACY POLICY

We understand and value your privacy. As such, our information collection practices on the Platform and the ways in which we may use that information, are governed by the terms of our Privacy Policy.

WHAT WE DO

On the Platform we equip qualified investors, further: ’the User’, with a search tool to browse and explore investment opportunities. We create value by facilitating exchanges between the User and the external providers of those investment opportunities. By no means we give advice nor sell any financial product or service published on the Platform.

GENERAL PRACTICES

In order to establish whether a prospective user of the Platform qualifies as an investor, an ambassador of ours will contact the prospective user to discuss all relevant information required for approval and activation of a user account.

Signing up to the Platform is free of charge, but we could imagine you would prefer our paid service ‘Preferred Fellowship’ that gives you priority rights and/or financial benefits on certain projects. You can upgrade your free account to Preferred Fellowship at any time.

You are responsible for maintaining the accuracy of your account and password. You agree to immediately notify us of unauthorized use of your account or password, or any other breach of security.

Information, such as data, text, visuals, etcetera, further: ’the Content’, are the sole responsibility of the third party the Content originated from. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of the Content nor can we accept any liability thereof.

Though we appreciate any suggestions you might have, the final decision with regard to the investment opportunities published on the Platform lies with the Fellowship of Informal Investors team.

We may change the way we do business. In the latest update of these Terms of Use you can read about any changes of our general practices within reason.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

This section applies to the Platform solely and not to financial products or services on the Platform that may be sold by third parties.

We try to ensure that the information provided is accurate and complete. However, we do not warrant or represent that the Content is accurate, error-free or reliable or that use of the Platform will not infringe rights of third parties.

We do not warrant that the functional and/or technical aspects of the Platform or the Content will be error-free or that the Platform, the Content or the cloud servers that make them available are free of viruses or other harmful components. If use of the Platform or the Content results in the need for servicing or replacing property, material, equipment, data or other element, we are not responsible for those costs. Without limiting the foregoing, everything on the Platform is provided to you “as is” and “as available” and, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, without warranty of any kind, either expressed or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability, satisfactory quality, fitness for a particular purpose, reasonable care and skill, or non-infringement. We and the external providers of financial products and services make no warranties about the Content, software, text, downloads, graphics, and links, or about results to be obtained from using the Platform.

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, we shall not be liable for any indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages of any kind arising out of or in connection with the use of information available from the Platform or any liability relating to any loss of use, interruption of business, lost profits or lost data, regardless of the form of action, whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise.

Please note that in some jurisdictions consumer protection laws may not allow certain exclusions or limitation of warranties or liabilities, and consequently some of the above exclusions and limitations may not apply.
