11. Regulatory Disclosure
(b) The information contained via Services has been prepared by Fintor without reference to any particular user’s investment requirements or financial situation. Potential investors are encouraged to consult with professional tax, legal, and financial advisors before making any investment into a securities offering. An investment in new issues of securities would be speculative and would involve a high degree of risk. Investors must be prepared to bear the economic risk of such an investment for an indefinite period of time and be able to withstand a total loss of their investment. Please consider carefully the investment objectives, risks, transaction costs, and other expenses related to an investment prior to deciding to invest.
(c) YOU MUST CAREFULLY REVIEW THE RELEVANT OFFERING CIRCULAR, ANY SUPPLEMENT THERETO AND THE SUBSCRIPTION DOCUMENTATION BEFORE DECIDING TO INVEST. Fintor has created these Services solely for the purpose of providing interested parties with an introduction to the business of Fintor in order for the interested party to evaluate whether to proceed with a more in-depth investigation of any offerings obtainable through a registered representative. These Services are not, and under no circumstances are they to be construed as, an offer to sell the securities of any issuer, whether or not it is an affiliate of Fintor, which may only be made at the time a qualified offeree receives the relevant confidential offering documentation, which contains important information about the investment and the risks of investing in it. Any potential offer would not be valid in a jurisdiction where the offer or sale of the securities is unlawful.
(d) Past performance is no guarantee of future results. An investor can lose money. Diversification and asset allocation do not ensure a profit or guarantee against loss. There can be no guarantee that any actual or hypothetical investment will in fact achieve a particular outcome or perform in any predictable manner. Investment decisions should be based on an individual’s own goals, time horizon, and tolerance for risk.
(e) The information contained herein is provided for informational and discussion purposes only and is not, and may not be relied on in any manner as legal, tax, or investment advice, or as an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy an interest in any security. Such an offer can only be made by providing qualified investors at their request Offering Documentation, which will be furnished to qualified investors for their consideration in connection with any such offering. The information contained herein will be qualified in its entirety by reference to the Offering Documents, other agreements, and documents referred to therein, which contain additional information about the investment objective, terms, risks, and conditions of an investment. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to be binding against, or to create any obligations or commitment on the part of, any potential investor, the offering sponsors, or their respective affiliates. No person has been authorized to give any information or make any representation or warranty regarding the subject matter hereof, either express or implied, and, if given or made via the Services, in other materials, or orally, such information, representation, or warranty cannot and should not be relied upon, nor is any representation or warranty made as to the accuracy, content, suitability, or completeness of the information, analysis, or conclusions, or any information furnished in connection herewith contained within the Services.
(f) You understand that Fintor is not registered as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940 or an investment adviser under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, and thus investors will not have the benefit of the protections of the Investment Company Act or the Investment Advisers Act. Neither the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission nor any state securities authority has approved or disapproved of any securities that may be made available through the Services nor have any of the foregoing passed upon or endorsed the merits of any offering or the accuracy or adequacy of any of any Offering Circular or other communication. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.
12. Limitation of Liability
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL FINTOR OR ITS AFFILIATES BE LIABLE OR RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL (INCLUDING DAMAGES FROM LOSS OF BUSINESS, LOST PROFITS, LITIGATION, OR THE LIKE), SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, OR OTHER DAMAGES, UNDER ANY LEGAL THEORY, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATING TO THE SERVICES, YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, OR THE CONTENT, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. YOUR SOLE REMEDY FOR DISSATISFACTION WITH THE SERVICES AND/OR CONTENT IS TO CEASE ALL OF YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES. You may have additional rights under certain laws (including consumer laws) which do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of certain damages. If these laws apply to You, the exclusions or limitations in this Agreement that directly conflict with such laws may not apply to You.
13. Use of Information
14. Applicable Law; Arbitration
(a) You agree that the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflicts of laws provisions, will govern this Agreement and any dispute that may arise between You and Fintor or its affiliates.
(b) In the interest of resolving disputes between You and Fintor in the most expedient and cost effective manner, You and Fintor agree that any dispute arising out of or related to this Agreement or Your use of the Service will be resolved by binding arbitration, as set forth more fully in this Section 14. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or in any way related to this Agreement or your use of the Service, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of this Agreement. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND FINTOR ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AND THAT THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE SUBJECT TO AND GOVERNED BY THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT.
(c) Notwithstanding Section 14.b above, nothing in this Agreement will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (i) bring an individual action in small claims court; (ii) pursue a claim under applicable securities laws through the applicable federal, state, or local agency; (iii) seek injunctive relief in aid of arbitration from a court of competent jurisdiction; or (iv) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
(d) Any arbitration between You and Fintor will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, AAA Rules) of the American Arbitration Association (AAA), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting Fintor. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language and held before a single arbitrator. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
(e) If Your claim is for U.S. $10,000 or less, You may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic or videoconference hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If Your claim exceeds U.S. $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearings will take place in San Jose, California unless the parties both agree in writing to a different location. You and Fintor agree that the arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to decide all issues relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability and scope of the terms of this Agreement.
(f) Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, if Fintor makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to Fintor’s address for Notice, then you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to Fintor’s address for notice, in which case this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected, will continue to govern any disputes between You and Fintor.
(g) If any of the specific provisions within this Section 14 are found to be unenforceable, the remainder of this Section 14 shall not be affected thereby and, to this extent, the provisions of this Section 14 shall be deemed to be severable.
If any provision of this agreement shall be adjudged by any court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect.
The failure of Fintor to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. Any waiver of this Agreement by Fintor must be in writing and signed by an authorized representative of Fintor.
Fintor may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without notice, for any reason.
18. Contact Information
- Relationship of the Parties
Nothing contained in this Agreement or Your use of the Services shall be construed to constitute either party as a partner, joint venturer, employee or agent of the other party, nor shall either party hold itself out as such. Neither party has any right or authority to incur, assume or create, in writing or otherwise, any warranty, liability or other obligation of any kind, express or implied, in the name of or on behalf of the other party, it being intended by both parties that each shall remain independent contractors responsible for its own actions.
