Terms & Conditions
Please read these Terms and all policies carefully before using any portion of our Services. This Agreement sets forth the legally binding terms and conditions for your use of our Services. BY USING OUR SERVICES, EACH USER (“YOU”, “YOUR”, “user”) ACCEPTS AND AGREES TO THIS AGREEMENT IN ITS ENTIRETY AND ALL OF ITS PROVISIONS.
Your use of the Services is governed by the then current version of this Agreement in effect on the date of such use. Access may, at its sole discretion, modify and replace this Agreement at any time and without prior notice to you by posting the updated Agreement on the Site. By using and accessing the Services, you acknowledge and agree to review the then current version of the Agreement prior to each such use. Your continued use of the Services after any modifications to the Terms have been published on the Services or otherwise provided to you constitutes your acknowledgement of, and binding agreement to, the then current Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the resolution of any dispute that arises between you and Access will be governed by the Terms in effect at the time the events giving rise to such dispute occurred. Access further reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to block or otherwise discontinue your access and use of the Services at any time and for any reason. You agree that Access and its subsidiaries and affiliates will not be liable to you or to any third party for any such modification, suspension or discontinuance.
No Legal, Accounting or Tax Advice
Access does not provide legal, accounting or tax advice. Any representation or implication to the contrary is expressly disclaimed. You should consult your own legal, accounting and tax experts before using the Services.
Important Notices Applicable to Your Use of the Services
It is important that you read the entire Agreement, but we wanted to point out some of the more important crowdfunding notices here:
The federal and state securities laws applicable to private company finance are complex. In general, they are designed to protect unsophisticated people from making ill-advised investments. These Terms are designed to minimize the risk and to protect Access in the event that anyone claims he, she or it was damaged by using the Services.
Neither the information nor any opinion expressed on the Services constitutes an offer by Access to buy or sell any securities or financial instruments or provide any investment advice or related services. None of the Services shall be construed as an offer to buy, or the solicitation of an offer to sell, any securities. Investments can and do lose money and you should be prepared to lose your entire investment in the Services made available by Access.
The information provided on the Services by us about investment opportunities may not be available to or suitable for you. Not all strategies are appropriate at all times. Access is not obligated to perform, and has not performed, an analysis of investor suitability with respect to the investments available through the Services.
The opinions expressed on the Services by us do not constitute investment advice. Independent advice should be sought in all cases before investing in an opportunity offered through the Services.
The value and income of any of the investing opportunities mentioned on the Services by us can fall as well as rise and an investor may get back less than he or she invested or nothing at all. Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance.
The investment opportunities mentioned on the Services may often have tax consequences; therefore, it is important to bear in mind that we do not provide tax advice. The levels and bases of taxation can change. Investors’ tax affairs are their own responsibility and Investors should consult their own attorneys or other tax advisors in order to understand the tax consequences of any investments mentioned on the Services.
Access does not endorse or recommend any of the investment offerings included on the Services.
Please note that Access does not conduct any diligence or review of the investment offerings included on the Services. Access does not offer legal advice. You are encouraged to seek legal counsel prior to investing using information on the Services.
The Services are available only to individuals who are at least 18 years old (and at least the legal age in your jurisdiction). You represent and warrant that if you are an individual, you are at least 18 years old and of legal age in your jurisdiction to form a binding contract, and that all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful. Access may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer the Services to any person or entity. The Services are not available to any Users suspended or removed from the Site or Service by Access. By using the Services, you represent that you have not been previously suspended or removed from the Site or Service.
As part of Access’ authorization process, each User shall be required to provide, among other things, a valid email address. In providing your email address and agreeing to these Terms of Service, each authorized User consents to receiving email notifications from Access concerning offerings. Additionally, Users of the restricted portions of the Site are required to confirm their status as an Accredited Investor. In order for Access to confirm that your representation regarding your status as an Accredited Investor is accurate when made and continues to be accurate from time to time, you agree to provide Access with all information and documentation reasonably required by Access to verify your status as an Accredited Investor, including without limitation, delivering a completed Accredited Investor Questionnaire, tax returns, brokerage statements, bank statements, resumes and other private financial information. Should you fail to provide information and documentation that confirms your status as an Accredited Investor, Access may immediately suspend, block or otherwise discontinue your access and use of the Site or Service. Access may change its eligibility criteria at any time, for any reason, and without prior notice.
If you create an account and become a registered user of the Services, you agree to:
1. provide accurate, current and complete information about you as may be prompted at registration (“Account Information”);
2. maintain the security of your password and identification;
3. maintain and promptly update your Account Information, and any other information that you provide to Access, to keep it accurate, current and complete; and
4. accept all risks of unauthorized access to your Account Information and any other information you provide to Access.
Fees and Payments
Access may, now or in the future, charge fees for the use of the Services or certain features thereof. You agree to pay to Access all applicable fees for the services purchased on or through the Site or Service under your account at the then-current rates for such services (including any applicable taxes). Service fees will be billed at the time you purchase any applicable services. Unless otherwise communicated to you by Access in writing, all fees and charges are nonrefundable. Access may change the fees for the use of the Services, or any service or feature provided thereon, or add new fees or charges, at any time. For any change in fees for services purchased under your account, Access will send you a notice of such change in advance of such change (via email or a message posted on the Site).
Access will bill all applicable charges through the payment method specified in your account (e.g. a credit card or electronic funds transfer). If you pay any applicable fees with a credit card, Access may seek pre-authorization of your credit card account prior to your purchase to verify that the credit card is valid and has the necessary funds or credit available to cover your purchase. You authorize such credit card account to pay any amounts described herein, and authorize Access to charge all sums described herein to such credit card account. You agree to provide Access updated information regarding your credit card and account upon Access’ request and any time the earlier provided information is no longer valid.
Some of our Services, and certain web pages of the Site, are available only to those Users who have been authorized by us to access those services and web pages. Only Users of the Service who are Accredited Investors as defined in Regulation D Rule 501 adopted pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933 (“Accredited Investors”) with a valid User ID and password are authorized to access such services and web pages. Such authorization may require completion of an Accredited Investor Questionnaire and satisfactory background information screening and/or identification verification. By registering for, accessing, browsing, and/or otherwise using the services and/or web pages for which access is restricted to Accredited Investors, you represent and agree that you are an Accredited Investor. Should you cease to be an Accredited Investor at any time, you agree to immediately notify Access and to refrain from accessing such restricted portions of the Site and/or Service. Further, because access to the restricted portions of the Site is limited by applicable law to Accredited Investors, you agree that you will not allow anyone to access such restricted portions of the Site, or share or disclose any information obtained through restricted portions of the Site with anyone, regardless of whether you believe such person or entity to also be an Accredited Investor.
Non-Accredited Investors/Regulation A+
Notwithstanding any to the contrary hereunder, the investment offerings posted on the Services are only available to Accredited Investors or non-accredited investors subject to certain limitations as set forth under Regulation A, as amended (“Reg A+”), under the Securities Act (“Reg A+ Qualified Purchasers” or “Qualified Purchasers”). If you intend to invest in an offering under Reg A+, you must represent that you will meet the investment thresholds under Tier 2 of Reg A+ for Qualified Purchasers. Prior to investing, you may be asked to fill out a questionnaire and provide necessary documentation as proof of your income and/or net worth to verify that you are qualified to invest in offerings posted on this Service. You acknowledge and agree that all information you provide for the authorization is complete and accurate. By registering with the Service for purposes of subscribing to investment offerings as a non-accredited investor, you represent and warrant that your investment in any Reg A+ offering posted on this Service shall not exceed the greater of 10% of your annual income or 10% of your net worth (excluding the value of your primary residence) at the time of such investment. YOU MUST MEET ONE OF THE ABOVE CRITERIA. WE ARE ENTITLED TO AND WILL RELY UPON YOUR REPRESENTATIONS.
Federal securities law requires securities sold in the United States to be registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), unless the sale qualifies for an exemption. The securities offered on the Service for U.S. investments have not been registered under the Securities Act, in reliance on the exemption promulgated under Regulation A, as amended by Title IV of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, known as “Reg A+”. In a Reg A+ offering, issuers of securities (“Issuers”) may advertise or market their offerings via “testing the waters” communications to the general public, or pay third parties to do so, subject to certain conditions. Federal law requires that Issuers sell Reg A+ securities to Reg A+ Qualified Purchasers who represent they satisfy the investment requirements before accepting subscriptions, among other requirements. Each Issuer is solely responsible for ensuring that its securities offering, including, without limitation, the use of the Services to offer and sell securities, satisfies the determination of whether an investor is a Qualified Purchaser and whether any investment complies with applicable state and Federal securities laws, rules and regulations. All Issuers utilizing the Services hereby agree that they (and not Access) are responsible for determining and verifying whether a potential investor is a Qualified Purchaser prior to accepting subscriptions. Users are strongly encouraged to contact each Issuer directly to discuss any questions regarding an offering or the business prospects of the Issuer.
The Service and investment offerings on this Site are available only to professionals who understand economic and investment risk and are willing to bear the consequences of that risk. By using the Services, you represent and warrant that if you are an individual, you are of legal age to form a binding contract and that all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful. You acknowledge and agree that you have significant experience investing in investments of the type offered through the Services, including, without limitation, real estate, equities, notes and other securities, you understand that all of the investments offered through the Services are inherently very risky, and you understand the risks associated with the investments offered through the Site, and you are comfortable with the risk of losing your entire investment invested through the Service. You further acknowledge and agree that investing in private placements carries with it low liquidity concerns and long-term commitments and that the securities sold through private placements are not publicly traded. Additionally, Investors may receive restricted stock that may be subject to holding period requirements. For those reasons, these offerings may be made available only to certain institutional investors and high net worth individuals and entities. If you are using the Services on behalf of any entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to accept this Agreement on such entity’s behalf, and that such entity agrees to indemnify Access for violations of this Agreement.
You acknowledge and agree that Access is not a registered Investment Company or Investment Advisor within the meaning of the Investment Company Act of 1940 and the Investment Advisors Act of 1940, respectively. Investment products are not FDIC insured, may lose value, and there is no bank guarantee.

Third Party Content
Access does not permit infringement of intellectual property rights on the Site or Service, and Access will remove copyright infringing activities or related User Content if Access is properly notified that such User Content infringes on another’s intellectual property rights. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or that any material on the Site violates this Agreement or your intellectual property rights, please notify Access as soon as possible by sending an email to email@example.com, or by contacting Access’ Agent (listed below), with the following information pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) (please confirm these requirements with your legal counsel, or see the U.S. Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. §512(c)(3), for more information):
1. an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest;
2. a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed;

Pursuant to Section 512(c)(2) of the DMCA, Access’ designates the following agent to receive notifications of claimed infringement:
Aaron McDaniel 601 One Embarcadero Center, Suite 547 San Francisco, CA 94111 aaron@Accessinvest.com
For the avoidance of doubt, only DMCA notices should go to Access’ Designated Copyright Agent.
You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this section, your DMCA notice may not be valid. We reserve the right to remove User Content alleged to be infringing or otherwise illegal without prior notice and at our sole discretion. In appropriate circumstances, Access will also terminate a User’s account if the User is determined to be a repeat infringer.
Interactions With Other Users
The Services may allow you to correspond or otherwise interact with other Users who may provide you with investments, investment information, advice, services and/or events, or provide you with other information about various companies or organizations. You acknowledge that such other Users are not affiliated with or controlled by Access or its affiliates, and Access cannot influence the investments, information, advice or services provided by them. Your correspondence or interaction with other Users is solely between you and such other Users. You agree that Access and its affiliates will not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any interactions between you and other Users. Furthermore, if you provide any investments, information, advice or services to other Users through the Services, you acknowledge that you are not affiliated with, or controlled or influenced in any way by, Access or its affiliates.

If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”

IN NO EVENT WILL Access’ OR ITS AFFILIATES’, CONTRACTORS’, EMPLOYEES’, AGENTS’, OR THIRD-PARTY PARTNERS’ OR SUPPLIERS’ LIABILITY TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, LOSSES, AND CAUSES OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE OR YOUR INTERACTION WITH OTHER USERS (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, WARRANTY, OR OTHERWISE) EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU, IF ANY, FOR ANY ACCESS TO OR USE OF the SERVICE OR ANY PART THEREOF, OR ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS, WHICHEVER IS GREATER. APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY OR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN SUCH CASES, Access’ LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Access, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, contractors, suppliers, representatives and agents, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debts, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees) arising from or relating to:
1. your use or misuse of and access to the Site, Service, or any content thereon;
3. infringement by you or any third party using your account of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, property, or privacy right; or
4. any claim that your User Content caused damage to a third party.
This defense and indemnification obligation will survive this Agreement and your use of the Services. Access reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will assist and cooperate with the Company in asserting any available defenses.
Accessing the Services is prohibited from territories where the Services or any content thereon is illegal. If you access the Services from other locations, you do so at your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws.
Governing Law; Arbitration
This Agreement (and any further rules, policies, or guidelines incorporated by reference) shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the state of California as they apply to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within California between California residents, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law, and without application of the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act or the United Nations Convention of Controls for International Sale of Goods. By your agreement to the Terms and your use of the Access’ Service, you agree to submit to personal jurisdiction in California for all purposes, and you agree to waive, to the maximum extent permitted by law, any right to a trial by jury for any matter.
Unless otherwise agreed in writing by you and Access, any dispute arising out of or relating to the Terms, or any breach thereof, shall be finally resolved by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rules, or such arbitration body as required by law, rule or regulation, and final judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language before a single arbitrator in California. Such arbitration must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises. Judgment on any award entered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either Access or you may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for injunctive relief without breach of this arbitration provision.
Any cause of action arising out of or related to the Services, and all products and services offered via the Access Services must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues. Otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred. You acknowledge and agree that you may bring claims against Access only in an individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding.
No Class Action Matters. YOU AND Access AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OR AS AN ASSOCIATION. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be joined or consolidated with any other arbitrations or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party. There shall be no right or authority for any dispute to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on any basis involving disputes brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public, or other persons or entities similarly situated. But if, for any reason, any court with competent jurisdiction holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement in this section to arbitrate will not apply and the dispute must be brought exclusively in court pursuant to this section. Notwithstanding any other provision of this section, any and all issues relating to the scope, interpretation and enforceability of the class action waiver provisions contained herein (described in this “No Class Action Matters” section), are to be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction, and not by the arbitrator. The arbitrator does not have the power to vary these class action waiver provisions.

No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment relationship is created as a result of the Terms and neither party has any authority of any kind to bind the other in any respect. Except as expressly provided in these Terms, there shall be no third-party beneficiaries to the Terms. Access reserves the right, without any limitation, to: (i) investigate any suspected breaches of its Service security or its information technology or other systems or networks, (ii) investigate any suspected breaches of these Terms, (iii) investigate any information obtained by Access in connection with reviewing law enforcement databases or complying with criminal laws, (iv) involve and cooperate with law enforcement authorities in investigating any of the foregoing matters, (v) prosecute violators of these Terms, and (vi) discontinue the Services, in whole or in part, suspend or terminate your access to it, in whole or in part, including any User accounts or registrations, at any time, without notice, for any reason and without any obligation to you or any third party. Any suspension or termination will not affect your obligations to Access under these Terms. Upon suspension or termination of your access to the Service, or upon notice from Access, all rights granted to you under these Terms will cease immediately, and you agree that you will immediately discontinue use of the Services.
