Any User who uses the Services to raise capital for their business or organization is referred to in this document as an Issuer (“Issuer”). Any User who uses the Services to invest in the securities of an Issuer is referred to in this document as an Investor (“Investor”). Users interested in issuing or investing in offerings of private securities from businesses (including funds) may do so using the services of Umergence LLC to raise capital using exemptions to the Securities Act of 1933, including but not limited to Regulation A, Regulation CF, Regulation D 506(b) and 506(c) (an “offering” or “deal”). Such securities are unregistered and not subject to the same level of disclosures, regulatory filing or due diligence as public companies and, as such, are held by regulators to be MUCH riskier for investors and other parties involved in an offering. Offerings may only be available to certain investor types, classes and/or groups, depending upon the type of offering, various regulatory requirements, and /or the preferences of the issuer and their advisors; including, but not limited to, limiting deal access or investment capability to accredited investors, to clients of specific brokers, and/or to members of certain organizations.
Umergence does not recommend any securities; User agrees that no Content on this site constitutes or can be interpreted as either investment advice or a recommendation of securities by Umergence. Furthermore, User agrees unconditionally that the contents of this website and the Service do not constitute financial, accounting, legal, or tax advice from Umergence. Investors are solely responsible for conducting any legal, accounting, anti-fraud, and/or other due diligence on deals in which they invest. You should always obtain investment and tax advice from your professional advisers before investing. Deals, and the investments therein are not FDIC, SIPC or otherwise insured or guaranteed IN ANY WAY, and may lose value or become worthless for a wide variety of reasons. That we may have, either directly or through a third-party, enabled, provided data for, assisted with or performed some basic due diligence does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation, nor a representation about the legitimacy, quality or attractiveness of any deal and is not an endorsement or recommendation of any form by Umergence. Umergence LLC and/or its third-party affiliates will not process transactions for nor sell any securities to any investor other than those which the investor self-directs and invests in at their own discretion. Umergence LLC and/or a third party affiliate will perform Know Your Customer (“KYC”) procedures on all investors it represents, as required by regulators, and may prohibit participation in any offering if stated investment goals are not suitable for the risks associated with private securities in general; User agrees that this is a general requirement and in compliance with regulatory rules and guidance, and in no way creates or is deemed to be any form of recommendation or advice by Umergence. Umergence may decline to represent any User’s investment in any specific offering at its discretion, with no requirement for any reason or explanation; the parties agree that such decline(s), if any, shall not constitute an opinion, recommendation or investment advice by Umergence.
You are responsible for knowing and complying with all federal, state and other regulatory laws and rules for all activities you engage in. This includes, but is not limited to, filing forms with federal and state regulators, investor communications, statements, accounting, and other matters.
Users have up to 48 hours prior to the end of the offer period of a Regulation Crowdfunding offering to change their mind and cancel their investment commitment for any reason. Cancelled investments are refunded less any applicable third-party transaction processing fees. Once the offering period is within 48 hours of ending, it will not be able to cancel for any reason even if you make your commitment during this period. However, if the company makes a material change to the offering terms or other information disclosed to you, you will be given five business days to reconfirm your investment commitment.

This Agreement contains a pre-dispute arbitration clause. By entering into this Agreement, you are entering into an arbitration agreement, by which the parties agree as follows:
Any controversy or claim pertaining to securities arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be settled by arbitration in accordance with the rules of FINRA Dispute Resolution, Inc. (“FINRA DR”). I agree to arbitrate any controversy or claim before FINRA DR in the State of Connecticut.
This agreement to arbitrate constitutes a waiver of the right to seek a judicial forum unless such a waiver would be void under the federal securities law. If you are a foreign national, non-resident alien, or if you do not reside in the United States, you agree to waive your right to file an action against us in any foreign venue.
No person shall bring a putative or certified class action to arbitration, nor seek to enforce any pre-dispute arbitration agreement against any person who has initiated in court a putative class action; or who is a member of a putative class who has not opted out of the class with respect to any claims encompassed by the putative class action until:
Such forbearance to enforce an agreement to arbitrate shall not constitute a waiver of any rights under this Agreement except to the extent stated herein.
Any claim or dispute that is not related to securities and arising under this Agreement between you and Umergence may only be brought in arbitration. Arbitration with Umergence shall be pursuant to the rules of the American Arbitration Association. In all cases, it is agreed that venue shall be in the city of Boston in the state of Massachusetts. Each User and Umergence consents to this method of dispute resolution, as well as jurisdiction, and consents to this being a convenient forum for any such claim or dispute and waives any right it may have to object to either the method or jurisdiction for such claim or dispute. In the event of any dispute among the parties, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover damages plus reasonable attorney’s fees , and the decision of the arbitrator shall be final, binding and enforceable in any court. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of any User Agreement, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of this Agreement. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND UMERGENCE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. Any arbitration between you and Umergence will be settled under the Federal Arbitration Act, and governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting Umergence.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified U.S. Mail or by Federal Express (signature required) or, only if such other party has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail ("Notice"). Any notices to Umergence LLC, Umergence Marketplace LLC, or Umergence Holdings LLC are to be sent to 1224 Mill Street, Building B, East Berlin, CT 06023. The Notice must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Umergence may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Umergence must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any.
YOU AND UMERGENCE 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. Further, unless both you and Umergence agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
Any notices to Umergence LLC, Umergence Marketplace LLC, or Umergence Holdings LLC are to be sent to 1224 Mill Street, Building B, East Berlin, CT 06023. Any notices to User will be sent to the email address provided to us in your account on the Service.
You agree to indemnify and hold Umergence, its subsidiaries, directors, employees, service providers, advertisers, affiliates, officers, agents, and partners harmless from any loss, liability, claim, or demand, including reasonable attorney’s fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your use of the Service in violation of this Agreement and/or arising from a breach of any provision in this Agreement. This defense and indemnification obligation will survive termination of this Agreement and your use of the Service. Umergence reserves the right to assume, at its sole expense, the exclusive defense and control of any such claim or action and all negotiations for settlement or compromise, and you agree to fully cooperate with Umergence in the defense of any such claim, action, settlement or compromise negotiations, as requested by Umergence.
This Agreement, along with any and all rights and licenses granted herein, may be transferred or assigned by Umergence at any time, without notice or restriction.
This Agreement, accepted upon use of the Service, contains the entire agreement between User and Umergence regarding the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid, the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
