StatFunding Terms of Use

StatFunding Terms of Use

Welcome to the StatFunding platform. The StatFunding platform (the "Service") is operated by StatFunding, Inc., a Florida Corporation ("we," or "us"). By accessing or using our web site at www.StatFunding.com, including any subdomain thereof (the "Site"), you (the "User") signify that you have read, understand and agree to be bound by these terms of use ("Terms of Use"), regardless of whether you are a registered member of the Service. In addition to these Terms of Use, you may enter into other agreements with us or others that will govern your use of the Service or related services offered by us or others. If there is any contradiction between these Terms of Use and another agreement you enter into applicable to specific aspects of the Service, the other agreement shall take precedence in relation to the specific aspects of the Service to which it applies. As used herein, "Users" means anyone who accesses and/or uses the Site. For any terms herein applicable to all Users, all investor members, or business and other entity Users specifically, or where the context otherwise requires, "Users" shall be deemed to include any business or other entity on behalf of which the Site or Service is accessed by any other User, and "you" shall be deemed to include any such business or other entity and any person acting on behalf of any such business or other entity in connection with the use of the Site or Service. "Users" refers to (i) Site Visitors and (ii) Registered Users, and (iii) Participating Users as applicable. A "Participating User" means a natural person (not a legal entity) who (i) is age 18 or older and (ii) has completed the registration process at our Site. We may permit certain companies (legal entities) to participate in our Platform. These entities are not considered "Participating Users" because they must agree to additional terms, such as further "good citizenship" terms, that apply to their participation. For convenience, we use the term "Services" to refer collectively to the services we offer via the Platform and our Investment Related Services. We view our Services as providing a platform.

Changes to these Terms of Use

We may make changes to these Terms of Use from time to time. If we do this, we will post the changed Terms of Use on the Site and will indicate at the top of this page the date the Terms of Use were last revised. You understand and agree that your continued use of the Service or the Site after we have made any such changes constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Use.

You may review personal or business information posted by other Users on the Site, but you are not authorized to disclose such information for any purpose.

    2. ALL USERS: CONSENT TO ELECTRONIC TRANSACTIONS AND DISCLOSURES

    Because StatFunding operates only on the Internet, it is necessary for you to consent to transact business with us online and electronically. As part of doing business with us and our affiliates ("Our Affiliates"), therefore, we also need you to consent to our giving you certain disclosures electronically, either via our Site or to the email address you provide to us. By agreeing to the Terms of Use, you agree to receive electronically all documents, communications, notices, contracts, and agreements (including any IRS Forms, including but not limited to Form 1099) arising from or relating to your use of the Site and Service, including any notes you have purchased, your use of this Service, and the servicing of any notes you have purchased as either an investor of StatFunding (each, a "Disclosure"), from us, whether we are acting in the capacity as trustee or otherwise, or Our Affiliates. An IRS Form 1099 refers to any Form 1099 or other Form, Schedule or information statement, including corrections of such documents, required to be provided pursuant to U.S. Internal Revenue Service rules and regulations and that may be provided electronically (each, an "IRS Form 1099"). The decision to do business with us and Our Affiliates electronically is yours. This document informs you of your rights concerning Disclosures. Electronic Communications. Any Disclosures will be provided to you electronically through StatFunding.com either on our Site or via electronic mail to the verified email address you provided. If you require paper copies of such Disclosures, you may write to us at the mailing address provided below and a paper copy will be sent to you at a cost of up to $5.00 or the actual costs StatFunding incurs preparing and delivering the paper documents, whichever is higher. A request for a paper copy of any Disclosure will not be considered a withdrawal of your consent to receive Disclosures electronically. Any IRS 1099 Forms provided electronically will remain accessible through at least October 15 of the year in which such IRS Form 1099 is made available; after that time the IRS Form 1099 may no longer be accessible electronically. We may discontinue electronic provision of Disclosures at any time in our sole discretion. Scope of Consent. Your consent to receive Disclosures and transact business electronically, and our agreement to do so, applies to any transactions to which such Disclosures relate, whether between you and StatFunding or between you and Our Affiliates. Your consent will remain in effect for so long as you are a User and, if you are no longer a User, will continue until such a time as all Disclosures relevant to transactions that occurred while you were a User have been made. Consenting to Do Business Electronically. Before you decide to do business electronically with StatFunding or Our Affiliates, you should consider whether you have the required hardware and software capabilities described below. Hardware and Software Requirements. In order to access and retain Disclosures electronically, you must satisfy the following computer hardware and software requirements: access to the Internet; an email account and related software capable of receiving email through the Internet; supported Web browsing software (Chrome version 32.0 or higher, Firefox version 26.0 or higher, Internet Explorer version 9.0 or higher, or Safari version 7.0 or higher); and hardware capable of running this software.

    TCPA Consent: I expressly consent to receiving calls and messages, including auto dialed and pre recorded message calls, and SMS messages (including text messages) from us, our affiliates, agents and others calling at their request or on their behalf, at any telephone numbers that you have provided or may provide in the future (including any cellular telephone numbers). Your cellular or mobile telephone provider will charge you according to the type of plan you carry.

    Additional Mobile Technology Requirements. If you are accessing our site and the Disclosures electronically via a mobile device (such as a smart phone, tablet, and the like), in addition to the above requirements you must make sure that you have software on your mobile device that allows you to print and save the Disclosures presented to you during the application process. These applications can be found for most mobile devices in the device's respective "app store". If you do not have these capabilities on your mobile device, please access our site through a device that provides these capabilities.

    Withdrawing Consent. You may not withdraw such consent as long as you have outstanding any investments made through the Site. If you have no outstanding investments made through the site and wish to withdraw consent to doing business electronically, we will terminate your registered user account with us.

    How to Contact Us regarding Electronic Disclosures. You can contact us via email at support@StatFunding.com. You may also reach us in writing to us at the following address: StatFunding, Inc. Attention: Member Services, 247 SW 8th St #356, Miami FL 33130.

    If you are an individual User, you will keep us informed of any change in your email or home mailing address so that you can continue to receive all Disclosures in a timely fashion. If your registered email address changes, you must notify us of the change by sending an email to support@StatFunding.com. You also agree to update your registered residence address and telephone number on the Site if they change. If you are a business or entity User or are acting on behalf of a business or entity, you will keep us informed of any change to your email address, telephone number and primary business address, as discussed under "Terms Applicable to Business and Other Entity Users" below. You will print a copy of this Agreement for your records and you agree and acknowledge that you can access, receive and retain all Disclosures electronically sent via email or posted on the Site.

    3. SECURITIES MATTERS

    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms of Use, in no event shall anything in these Terms of Use be deemed to be a waiver, and we will not assert there has been a waiver, that would not be permissible under Section 14 of the Securities Act of 1933, Section 29(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or any other applicable provision of federal and state securities laws. The investments offered on the Site have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, in reliance on the exemptive provisions of Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated thereunder, and/or Regulation A. Securities sold through private placements are restricted and not publicly traded, and are therefore illiquid. Neither the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission nor any state securities commission or other regulatory authority has approved, passed upon or endorsed the merits of any offering on this Site. Investment overviews on the Site contain summaries of the purpose and principal business terms of the investment opportunities. Such summaries are intended for informational purposes only and do not purport to be complete, and each is qualified in its entirety by reference to the more detailed discussions contained in the investor document package relating to such investment opportunity. The information contained in the Site has been prepared by StatFunding without reference to any particular user's investment requirements or financial situation, and potential investors are encouraged to consult with professional tax, legal and financial advisors before making any investment. You may not become a beneficial owner of 20% or more of any issuer's outstanding voting equity securities (an "Issuer Covered Person") without becoming subject to certain "bad actor" disqualifying events described in Rule 506(d) (a "Disqualifying Event"). You represent that you are not subject to a Disqualifying Event and that you will promptly notify StatFunding in writing should any Disqualifying Events be applicable to you. StatFunding is not liable or responsible for making Rule 506(e) disclosures, nor for determining whether any Issuer Covered Person is subject to a Disqualifying Event.

    4. TERMS APPLICABLE TO INDIVIDUAL USERS

    Registration Data; Account Security

    In consideration of your use of the Site, you agree to (a) provide accurate, current and complete information about you as may be prompted by any registration forms on the Site or otherwise requested by StatFunding ("Individual Registration Data"); (b) maintain the security of your password and identification; (c) maintain and promptly update the Individual Registration Data, and any other information you provide to StatFunding, to keep it accurate, current and complete; (d) promptly notify StatFunding regarding any material changes to information or circumstances that could affect your eligibility to continue to use the Site or Service or the terms on which you use the Site or Service; and (e) be fully responsible for all use of your account and for any actions that take place using your account.

    Business Registration Data; Account Security

    In consideration of your use of the Site and the Service on behalf of a business or other entity member, you, individually and on behalf of such business or entity, agree to (a) provide accurate, current and complete information about the business or entity, yourself and any other principals and/or authorized representatives of the business or entity member as may be prompted by any registration forms on the Site or otherwise requested by StatFunding ("Business Registration Data"), including the business or entity's full legal name; (b) provide such materials as StatFunding may request to establish and/or verify your or any other person's identity or authority to enter into binding agreements on behalf of the business or entity, or to establish and/or verify the business or entity's legal existence, good standing in any jurisdiction and eligibility to use the Site or Service; (c) maintain the security of any password and identification issued for use by or on behalf of the business or entity; (d) maintain and promptly update the Business Registration Data, and any other information provided to StatFunding by you or anyone else acting on behalf of the business or entity, to keep it accurate, current and complete; (e) promptly notify StatFunding regarding any material changes to information or circumstances impacting the business or entity's legal existence, good standing in any jurisdiction in which the business or entity is authorized to conduct business, or eligibility for continued use of the Site or any Service; and (f) be fully responsible for all use of any accounts opened on behalf of the business or entity and for any actions that take place using such account.

    Additional Representations: Business and Other Entity Users

    In addition to the User Representations set forth above under "User Representations," which you hereby confirm on behalf of the business or entity member, you further agree, both individually and on behalf of the business or entity, not to use the Service or the Site to:

  • register for multiple User accounts on behalf of the same business or entity; operate or otherwise utilize an account opened in the name of a business or entity for the benefit of any persons other than that business or entity;
  • operate or otherwise utilize an account opened in the name of a business or entity for any purpose prohibited by law or regulation, any activity which that business or entity is not duly authorized to conduct, or for any purpose prohibited by any other agreement between the business or entity and StatFunding or Our Affiliates;
  • operate a User account on behalf of any business or entity with regard to which you are not an authorized person with the power to enter into binding agreements on behalf of the business or entity;
  • communicate with any other User regarding the business or entity, or its business operations, other than anonymously and publicly via the Site, or upload, post, transmit, share or otherwise make available any information or informational material identifying the business or entity or its business operations (other than Business Registration Data provided to StatFunding or other information requested by StatFunding or otherwise necessary for your use of the Site or Service); and
  • upload, post, transmit, share, store or otherwise make publicly available on the Site any private information regarding the business or entity, including, without limitation, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, tax identification numbers and credit, or any personal information regarding persons associated with the business or entity (other than Business Registration Data provided to StatFunding).
  • Furthermore, you represent and warrant and agree, both individually and on behalf of the business or entity, that:

Any access to or use of the Site by persons who are not authorized representatives of the business or entity, including but not limited to any representative for whom Business Registration Data has not been provided, voids this license and shall constitute a violation of these Terms of Use. Furthermore, this license is revocable by us at any time with regard to the business or entity member and/or any person acting on such business or entity's behalf without notice and with or without cause.

By agreeing to the Terms and using the Website and the Service, you agree to submit to personal jurisdiction in Florida for all purposes. By agreeing to the Terms and using the Website and the Service, you agree that the jurisdiction and venue for any Claim arising out of or relating to this Website, these Terms of Use, or the Privacy Policy shall be in Miami-Dade County, Florida, USA.

    By agreeing to the Terms and using the Website and the Service, you agree to be irrevocably bound by this Dispute Resolution Provision and you agree that this Dispute Resolution Provision is a material inducement for StatFunding to permit you to visit and/or utilize the StatFunding platform. If you do not agree to these Terms of Use and this Dispute Resolution Provision you must immediately discontinue use of the StatFunding platform.

    (a) This Dispute Resolution Provision concerns the resolution of any controversies or claims between you and StatFunding (the "Parties"), whether arising in contract, tort or by statute, including but not limited to controversies or claims that arise out of or relate to: (i) this agreement (including any renewals, extensions or modifications); or (ii) any document related to this agreement (collectively a "Claim"). For the purposes of this Dispute Resolution Provision only, the term "Parties" shall include any parent corporation, subsidiary or affiliate of StatFunding involved in the servicing, management or administration of any right or obligation described or evidenced by any relationship between StatFunding and you.

    (b) At the request of any party to this agreement, any Claim shall be resolved by binding arbitration in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act (Title 9, U.S. Code) (the "Act"). The Act will apply even though this agreement provides that it is governed by the law of a specified state.

    (c) Arbitration proceedings will be determined in accordance with the Act, the then current rules and procedures for the arbitration of financial services disputes of the American Arbitration Association or any successor thereof ("AAA"), and the terms of this Dispute Resolution Provision. In the event of any inconsistency, the terms of this Dispute Resolution Provision shall control. If AAA is unwilling or unable to (i) serve as the provider of arbitration or (ii) enforce any provision of this arbitration clause, StatFunding may designate another arbitration organization with similar procedures to serve as the provider of arbitration.

    (d) The arbitration shall be administered by AAA and conducted, unless otherwise required by law, in any U.S. state where real or tangible personal property collateral for this credit is located or if there is no such collateral, in the state specified in the governing law section of this agreement. All Claims shall be determined by one arbitrator; however, if Claims exceed One Million Dollars ($1,000,000), upon the request of any party, the Claims shall be decided by three arbitrators. All arbitration hearings shall commence within ninety (90) days of the demand for arbitration and close within ninety (90) days of commencement and the award of the arbitrator(s) shall be issued within thirty (30) days of the close of the hearing. However, the arbitrator(s), upon a showing of good cause, may extend the commencement of the hearing for up to an additional sixty (60) days. The arbitrator(s) shall provide a concise written statement of reasons for the award. The arbitration award may be submitted to any court having jurisdiction to be confirmed and have judgment entered and enforced.

    (e) The arbitrator(s) will give effect to statutes of limitation in determining any Claim and may dismiss the arbitration on the basis that the Claim is barred. For purposes of the application of any statutes of limitation, the service on AAA under applicable AAA rules of a notice of Claim is the equivalent of the filing of a lawsuit. Any dispute concerning this arbitration provision or whether a Claim is arbitrable shall be determined by the arbitrator(s), except as set forth at subparagraph (j) of this Dispute Resolution Provision.

    (f) To the extent any Claims are not arbitrated, to the extent permitted by law the Claims shall be resolved in court by a judge without a jury, except any Claims which are brought in California state court shall be determined by judicial reference as described below.

    (g) Any Claim which is not arbitrated and which is brought in California state court will be resolved by a general reference to a referee (or a panel of referees) as provided in California Code of Civil Procedure Section 638. The referee (or presiding referee of the panel) shall be a retired Judge or Justice. The referee (or panel of referees) shall be selected by mutual written agreement of the Parties. If the Parties do not agree, the referee shall be selected by the Presiding Judge of the Court (or his or her representative) as provided in California Code of Civil Procedure Section 638 and the following related sections. The referee shall determine all issues in accordance with existing California law and the California rules of evidence and civil procedure. The referee shall be empowered to enter equitable as well as legal relief, provide all temporary or provisional remedies, enter equitable orders that will be binding on the Parties and rule on any motion which would be authorized in a trial, including without limitation motions for summary judgment or summary adjudication. The award that results from the decision of the referee(s) will be entered as a judgment in the court that appointed the referee, in accordance with the provisions of California Code of Civil Procedure Sections 644(a) and 645. The Parties reserve the right to seek appellate review of any judgment or order, including but not limited to, orders pertaining to class certification, to the same extent permitted in a court of law.

    (h) This Dispute Resolution Provision does not limit the right of any party to: (i) exercise self help remedies, such as but not limited to, setoff; (ii) initiate judicial or non judicial foreclosure against any real or personal property collateral; (iii) exercise any judicial or power of sale rights, or (iv) act in a court of law to obtain an interim remedy, such as but not limited to, injunctive relief, writ of possession or appointment of a receiver, or additional or supplementary remedies. The filing of a court action is not intended to constitute a waiver of the right of any party, including the suing party, thereafter to require submittal of the Claim to arbitration or judicial reference.

    (i) Any arbitration, judicial reference or trial by a judge of any Claim will take place on an individual basis without resort to any form of class or representative action (the "Class Action Waiver"). Regardless of anything else in this Dispute Resolution Provision, the validity and effect of the Class Action Waiver may be determined only by a court or referee and not by an arbitrator. The Parties to this Agreement acknowledge that the Class Action Waiver is material and essential to the arbitration of any disputes between the Parties and is nonseverable from the agreement to arbitrate Claims. If the Class Action Waiver is limited, voided or found unenforceable, then the Parties' agreement to arbitrate shall be null and void with respect to such proceeding, subject to the right to appeal the limitation or invalidation of the Class Action Waiver. The Parties acknowledge and agree that under no circumstances will a class action be arbitrated.

    (j) By agreeing to binding arbitration or judicial reference, the Parties irrevocably and voluntarily waive any right they may have to a trial by jury as permitted by law in respect of any Claim. Furthermore, without intending in any way to limit this Dispute Resolution Provision, to the extent any Claim is not arbitrated or submitted to judicial reference, the Parties irrevocably and voluntarily waive any right they may have to a trial by jury to the extent permitted by law in respect of such Claim. This waiver of jury trial shall remain in effect even if the Class Action Waiver is limited, voided or found unenforceable.

    WHETHER THE CLAIM IS DECIDED BY ARBITRATION, BY JUDICIAL REFERENCE, OR BY TRIAL BY A JUDGE, THE PARTIES AGREE AND UNDERSTAND THAT THE EFFECT OF THIS AGREEMENT IS THAT THEY ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

    (k) In any action between you and us regardless of whether it is proceeding in court or in judicial reference, unless inconsistent with applicable law, each party shall bear the expense of its respective attorney, expert, and witness fees, regardless of which party prevails in the matter.

    Indemnity

    You agree to indemnify and hold StatFunding, its subsidiaries and affiliates, and each of their directors, officers, agents, contractors, partners and employees, harmless from and against any loss, liability, claim, demand, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney's fees, arising out of or in connection with your User Content, any Third Party Content you post or share on or through the Site, your use of the Service or the Site, your conduct in connection with the Service or the Site or with other Users of the Service or the Site, or any violation of these Terms of Use or of any law or the rights of any third party. The previous sentence shall not apply to any extent to Users while acting as an investor or while registering as an investor in connection with their (i) posting of User Content or (ii) use of the Site or Service.

    Other

    The failure of StatFunding to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision in that or any other instance. If any provision of these Terms of Use is held invalid, the remainder of these Terms of Use shall continue in full force and effect. If any provision of these Terms of Use shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms of Use and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
