No Investment Advisory Relationship
Private Access Network is not acting as an investment adviser to any User, including, but not limited to, Members using the Service. No content on the Site, including content obtained through use of the Service, should be construed as investment advice. Private Access Network does not provide investment advice and is not registered as an investment adviser under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended, or under state law. None of the Content (defined below) constitutes a recommendation, solicitation or offer to buy or sell any securities, options or other financial instruments or other assets or provide any investment advice or service. The information on the Site has been prepared without reference to any particular User’s investment requirements or financial situation, including in the case of Members accessing the Restricted Sections (as defined below) of the Site.
Member Agreements and Considerations
Certain portions of the Site are accessible only by Members. In such sections (each, a “Restricted Section”), among other things, Members may have access to information regarding special purpose private investment vehicles (“SPVs”) managed by an affiliate of Private Access Network that invest in specific venture capital companies (“Issuers”).
Unauthorized access of the Restricted Sections and use of the Site and the Service, including, but not limited to the misuse or sharing of passwords or misuse of any other information, is strictly prohibited. Each Member is responsible for monitoring their Account and should promptly report any unauthorized or suspicious activity in the account to us at [email protected]. Each Member is responsible for any unauthorized use of his/her Account made before the Member has notified Private Access Network and Private Access Network has had a reasonable opportunity to act on that notice. Private Access Network reserves the right at its discretion to suspend or cancel a Member’s Account, which will be followed by notice of such suspension or cancellation, if Private Access Network suspects that it is being used in an unauthorized or fraudulent manner.
If a Member wishes to terminate its Account, the Member may do so by following the instructions on the Site.
By becoming a Member, each Member understands that such Member may not directly contact the Issuers in which the SPVs have invested or are considering investing without the prior, express, written permission of Private Access Network. Similarly, a Member understands and agrees that it may not attempt to enter into any transactions with such Issuers outside of the Service. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Private Access Network may, in its discretion, waive this provision for a Member who had a significant prior relationship with the particular Issuer in question.
