You represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years of age. If you are under age 18, you may not, under any circumstances or for any reason, use the Platform. We may, in our sole discretion, refuse to offer the Platform to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time. You are solely responsible for ensuring that the ToS are in compliance with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to you and the right to access the Platform is revoked where the ToS or use of the Platform is prohibited or to the extent offering, sale or provision of the Platform conflicts with any applicable law, rule or regulation.

5. Use of the Platform; Limitations; Acceptable Use.
• The Platform is designed for private market deal professionals to connect with each other for the purposes of general networking, business development, seeking and managing investment or acquisition opportunities, and identifying investors and providers of capital. Members of the Platform use a variety of tools to implement the aforementioned processes, including data room and document hosting tools, communication and messaging tools, and a variety of reports and analytics. Investure is not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers, and does not render investment or legal advice in connection therewith.

Investure has not made any recommendations regarding the merit of any company identified on the Platform, made any recommendation regarding the purchase or sale of any shares or security, or endorsed or sponsored any company identified on the Platform. For that reason all users of the Platform agree to be responsible for their own due diligence and the legal and regulatory compliance of any transaction they enter into, and Investure makes no representation or assurance about such compliance. As a user of the Platform, you are required to provide true and accurate information about their businesses, and to update and maintain such information, but Investure cannot and does not confirm the accuracy of information provided.

constitutes junk mail, spam, chain letters, pyramid schemes or the like;
is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortious, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libellous, deceptive, fraudulent, invasive of another’s privacy, offensive, profane, hateful or is racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable as determined by us in our sole discretion, or otherwise violates the legal rights of others;
you do not have the right to make available under any law or under contractual or fiduciary relationships (such as inside information, proprietary and confidential information learned or disclosed as part of employment relationships or under nondisclosure agreements);

• Paid Services. Certain services on the Platform may be subject to payments now or in the future (the “Paid Services”). Please note that any payment terms presented to you in the process of using or signing up for a Paid Service are deemed part of the ToS.
• Billing. We may use a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”) to bill you through a payment account linked to your Account on the Platform (your “Billing Account”) for use of the Paid Services. The processing of payments will be subject to any terms, conditions and privacy policies of such a Payment Processor in addition to the ToS. We are not responsible for error by a Payment Processor. By choosing to use Paid Services, you agree to pay us, all charges at the prices then in effect for any use of such Paid Services in accordance with the applicable payment terms and you authorize us, to charge or have the Payment Processor charge, your chosen payment provider (your “Payment Method”). You agree to make payment using that selected Payment Method. We reserve the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment.
• Payment Method. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the nancial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen Payment Method. If we, through a Payment Processor, do not receive payment from you, you agree to pay all amounts due on your Billing Account upon demand.
We may terminate your access to all or any part of the Platform at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately, which may result in the forfeiture and destruction of all information associated with your membership. If you wish to terminate your Account, you may do so by following the instructions on the Site or through the Platform.

12. No Warranty; Limitation of Liability.
• Any material downloaded, accessed or otherwise obtained through the Platform is obtained at your own discretion and risk, and you will be solely responsible for any damage to your computer system or loss of data that results therefrom. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN, INVESTURE AND ALL OF ITS THIRD-PARTY LICENSORS EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES AND REPRESENTATIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING ANY (I) WARRANTIES OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR USE AS TO THE PLATFORM, INCLUDING THE CONTENT, INFORMATION, DATA, SOFTWARE, OR PRODUCTS CONTAINED THEREIN, OR THE RESULTS OBTAINED BY THEIR USE OR AS TO THE PERFORMANCE THEREOF, (II) WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS ARISING THROUGH COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE OR USAGE OF TRADE, AND (III) WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE PLATFORM. INVESTURE PROVIDES THE PLATFORM AND ALL COMPONENTS THEREOF ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS AND YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. INVESTURE MAKES NO GUARANTEES OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND AS TO THE SECURITY, ADEQUACY, COMPLETENESS, SUFFICIENCY, TIMELINESS OR ACCURACY OF ANY CONTENT OR MATERIAL AVAILABLE IN OR THROUGH THE PLATFORM, THAT ANY DEFECTS OR ERRORS WILL BE CORRECTED, OR THAT ANY CONTENT OR SOFTWARE AVAILABLE AT OR THROUGH THE PLATFORM IS FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS.
• YOU HEREBY AGREE THAT ANY MONETARY CLAIMS OF ANY KIND ASSESSED AGAINST INVESTURE OR ITS DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, PARTNERS, SUPPLIERS OR CONTENT PROVIDERS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE USE OF THE PLATFORM SHALL NOT EXCEED (IN AGGREGATE) OF THE GREATER OF (I) THE TOTAL AMOUNT YOU (OR ANY OTHER USER) PAID TO INVESTURE FOR THE PLATFORM DURING THE PREVIOUS TWELVE (12) MONTHS OR (II) 5 000 SEK. IN NO EVENT SHALL INVESTURE OR ITS DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, PARTNERS, SUPPLIERS OR CONTENT PROVIDERS BE LIABLE TO YOU, OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY, FOR ANY LOST PROFITS, DATA LOSS, COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES, OR INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, COMPENSATORY OR INDIRECT DAMAGES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER (HOWEVER ARISING), EVEN IF ADVISED AS TO THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE CLAIM FOR SUCH DAMAGES IS BASED IN CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE.

INVESTURE CANNOT AND DOES NOT GUARANTEE CONTINUOUS, UNINTERRUPTED OR SECURE ACCESS TO THE PLATFORM.
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Investure, our affiliates and each of our and their respective officers, directors, agents, and employees, from and against any suit, action, claim, demand, penalty or loss, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by or resulting from any third party due to or arising out of your (or any third party using your Account or identity in the Platform) use or misuse of the Platform, breach of the ToS or the materials it incorporates by reference, or violation of any law, regulation, order or other legal mandate or the rights of a third party. We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defence and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will assist and cooperate with us in asserting any available defences.
14. Choice of Law.
You will resolve any claim, cause of action or dispute (together a “claim”) you have with Investure arising out of or relating to the Platform or the ToS exclusively in Stockholm where you agree that the courts of Sweden shall have exclusive jurisdiction. The laws of Sweden will govern the ToS, as well as any claim that may arise between you and Investure, without regard to conflict of law principles. In any dispute arising under the ToS, the prevailing party will be entitled to reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses.
• You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of, related to or connected with the use of Platform or the ToS must be led within three (3) months after such claim of action arose or be forever banned.
• This section will survive the termination of your relationship with us.
15. Marketing of Names.
When you announce closed transactions via your website or press release or other broad disclosure methods, Investure may disseminate its own release to its constituents indicating the use of the Platform in association with said transaction. Investure may add your entity’s name to Investure’s Member roster, which is professionally presented from time to time on its website and in marketing materials.
The ToS sets forth the entire understanding and agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter herein (excluding the terms and conditions of any client agreement you may have entered into separately with Investure).
We shall not be liable for any failure to perform our obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond our reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation.
You may not assign the ToS, or assign, transfer or sublicense your rights, if any, in the Platform. We may assign, transfer or delegate any of our rights and obligations hereunder without consent.
A failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive Investure’s right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches.
In the event that any provision or any portion of any provision of the ToS shall be held to be void or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the ToS (and the balance of any provisions held void or unenforceable in part only) shall continue in full force and effect.
If you do not agree with any part of these terms and conditions, or you have a dispute or claim against Investure or its supplier or affiliates with respect to the ToS you should immediately refrain from using the Platform.
No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment relationship is created as a result of the ToS and neither party has any authority of any kind to bind the other in any respect.
17. International Use.
We make no warranties that materials on Investure are appropriate or available for use in locations outside Sweden and the European Economic Area. If it is illegal or prohibited in your country of origin to access or use Investure, then you should not do so. Those who choose to access Investure outside Sweden and the European Economic Area do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with all local laws and regulations.
18. No Investment Advice, Recommendations or Offer.
You acknowledge that the content of Investure is for general, informational purposes only and is not intended to constitute an offer to sell or buy any securities, promise to undertake or solicit business, or pursue any other particular course of action and may not be relied upon in connection with any offer or sale of securities. Any person seeking to rely upon the information contained on, or made available via, Investure, does so at their own risk. We are not utilizing Investure to provide investment or other advice, and nothing on Investure (including but not limited to the provision of third party documentation) is to be deemed a recommendation that you buy, sell or hold, or that you are eligible to buy, sell or hold any security or other investment or that you pursue any investment style or strategy. If you require investment, accounting, tax or legal advice, you should consult with your own advisors with respect to your individual circumstances and needs.
We make no commitment and we disclaim any duty to update the information contained on or via, Investure or to require any third party to update such information.
Past Performance. All performance data or comments expressed on, or made available via, Investure are an indication of past performance. Past performance is not indicative of future results; no representation is being made that any investment will or is likely to achieve pro ts or losses similar to those achieved in the past, or that signi cant losses will be avoided.
Securities Transactions. Investure serves as an information medium and a private space to facilitate communications between members. Members are responsible for determining the qualifications of other members and for negotiating and effecting any resulting transactions. All interactions between members, including interactions regarding potential transactions and negotiations in connection therewith, take place between those members, and do not involve Investure. Investure does not act as the agent of any member, nor does it prepare or provide advice on the preparation of offering materials, assist in the negotiation of transactions, or effect any securities transactions. Investure does not make any recommendations regarding securities and does not hold any member funds or securities. Moreover, members should be aware that primary and secondary securities transactions are highly specialized and the merit of any particular securities transaction depends upon the specific facts and circumstances of that transaction. Investments in securities, including investments in private funds, are speculative and may involve the risk of substantial loss. Members are strongly urged to consult with their financial advisors before making an investment in securities.
MiFID Classification. In accordance with the criteria established by the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive no. 2004/39/EC of April 21, 2004 (“MiFID”) and implementing measures as transposed into Swedish law for classification of clients, when the service is provided by Investure, you will be categorized by Investure as a “Professional Investor” as defined in MiFID, to the extent you are not already categorized as an “Eligible Counterparty,” for the purposes of its business relationship with Investure, and will therefore benefit from the regulatory protections afforded by applicable laws, rules and regulations to this category of client.
To the extent that you intend to do so, you are eligible to invest in the investment opportunities that may be listed or otherwise become available through Investure. You acknowledge that an investment in any such investment opportunity should only be made by a Professional Investor pursuant to the laws and regulations applicable to it or the relevant investment opportunity. You further agree to submit any corresponding pre-qualification questionnaires reasonably requested by Investure throughout the term of the Agreement.
