MAMMOTH.VC WEBSITE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Last updated on April 28, 2021.
These Mammoth Website Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) govern access to and use of the mammoth.vc (“Mammoth,” “we” or “us”) website, associated sites and services (collectively, the “Site”) by Site visitors (“Site Visitors”) and by individuals or entities who invest in the Mammoth funds (“Mammoth Services”) or create an account (“Account” or “User Account”) and their Authorized Users (collectively, “Members”). By using the Site or any Mammoth Services, you as a Site Visitor or Member accept these Terms (whether on behalf of yourself or a legal entity you represent). An “Authorized User” of a Member is an individual natural person, whether an employee, business partner, contractor, or agent of a Member who is registered or permitted by the Member to use the Site or the Mammoth Services subject to these Terms. Members and Site Visitors may be referred to in these Terms as “you” and “your” as applicable.
For the avoidance of doubt, all references to the Site in these Terms also include the Mammoth Services. Mammoth does not provide personalized advice to individual investors about investments. You should consult your own advisers as to legal, business, tax, and other related matters concerning any investment.
This Site is for informational purposes only; offers of securities are made only to accredited investors pursuant to a fund’s offering documents, which describe the risks, fees and other information that should be considered before investing.
BY ACCESSING, USING, OR DOWNLOADING ANY MATERIALS FROM THE SITE, YOU AGREE TO FOLLOW AND BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, YOU ARE NOT AUTHORIZED TO PROCEED AND MUST IMMEDIATELY CEASE USING THE SITE.
UPDATES AND REVISIONS. We may revise these Terms or any additional terms and conditions that are relevant to a particular Mammoth Service from time to time to reflect changes in the law or to the Mammoth Services. We will post the revised terms on the Site with a “last updated” date. Please review the Site on a regular basis to obtain timely notice of any revisions. If you continue to use the Mammoth Site after the revisions are effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms. You agree that we shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification of the Terms. If you have any questions about these Terms, please contact us at email@example.com.
ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS. You agree to receive these Terms, any disclosure or notices required by applicable law and all communications, agreements, and notices that we provide in connection with the Site or any Mammoth Services (“Communications”), via electronic means, including by e-mail, text, in-Site notifications, or through any Mammoth Services. You also agree that Mammoth may respond to any communication you send to Mammoth by electronic communication. You agree that all Communications we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such Communications be in writing or be delivered in a particular manner and you agree to keep your Account contact information current. Mammoth will NEVER send you an email requesting confidential information such as Account numbers, usernames, or passwords and you should NEVER respond to any email requesting such information. If you receive such an email purportedly from Mammoth, do not respond to the email and notify Mammoth by or forwarding the email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any electronic communication Mammoth sends to you will be considered received within 7 calendar days of the date such communication if sent by computer servers utilized by Mammoth to the email address you designate in your account profile. To the extent permissible under applicable law, any electronic communication you send to Mammoth will not be effective until Mammoth has had a reasonable opportunity to act on the electronic communication. You should not rely on electronic communication if you need to communicate with Mammoth immediately and, in no event, should your sole method of communication with Mammoth regarding any emergency be by electronic communication. Mammoth strongly suggests that you report all matters requiring immediate attention by calling 800-618-2299.
NOT PERSONALIZED INVESTMENT ADVICE TO POTENTIAL INVESTORS IN OR MEMBERS OF THE MAMMOTH FUND.
