5. PAYMENT TERMS

5.1   PROCEDURES AND FEES

Invown.com offers its Service to Users who have registered for the Service and complete the required registration form.   After registering for the Service, each User will be required to complete a profile.  Fees payable by Issuers are described in the Issuer User Agreement which must be electronically signed by each Issuer prior to the commencement of a Campaign, and fees payable by Investors are described in the Investor User Agreement which must be electronically signed by each Issuer prior to making an investment.  By electronically signing the applicable User Agreement, the User is agreeing to pay all Fees as and when due.  Fees are not refundable.

5.2   PAYMENT PROCESSING

Payment processing services for Invown.com are provided by Braintree Limited/PayPal (www.braintreepayments.com)(www.paypal.com), and Prime Trust LLC (www.primetrust.com) or such other payment processor or financial institution as is from time to time designated by us.  By registering your Account, you agree to be bound by the services agreement of each such institution, as modified from time to time.  As a condition of Invown.com enabling its payment processing services, you agree to provide Invown.com accurate and complete information about you and your business, and you authorize Invown.com to share with its processor or financial institution such information as well as transaction information related to your use of the payment processing services provided by us.  At its discretion, from time to time Invown.com may (but shall not be required to) accept and process wire transfers, wallets, credit and debit cards, ACH and other payment methods (each a “Payment Method”).  Payment options will be provided as part of each transaction.

5.3   NON-PAYMENT

If User fails to pay any Fees or any other amount due to Invown.com or its Affiliates, whether by canceling User’s authorization to withdraw any Fees from User’s bank account, or canceling User’s credit or debit card, or initiating an improper chargeback, or any other means, Invown.com may suspend or close User’s Account, revoke User’s access to the Site and take any and all actions permitted by the applicable law to collect all amounts due.  Without limiting other available remedies, User must pay Invown.com upon demand all amounts owed under the Terms of Service, plus interest on the outstanding amount at the lesser of eighteen percent (18.0%) per annum or the maximum interest allowed by applicable law, plus attorneys’ fees and other costs of collection to the extent permitted by applicable law.  To the extent permitted by applicable law, Invown.com, at our discretion, may set off amounts due against other amounts received from or held by Invown.com or its payment processor for User, make appropriate reports to credit reporting agencies and law enforcement authorities, and cooperate with credit reporting agencies and law enforcement authorities in any resulting investigation or prosecution.

5.4   NO RETURN OF FUNDS

User acknowledges and agrees that Invown.com will charge User’s designated Payment Method for all Fees payable pursuant to the User Agreement.  In consideration of the Services provided by Invown.com, User agrees that once Invown.com charges the User’s designated Payment Method as provided in this Agreement or the other Terms of Service, the charge for any Fees is non-refundable, except as provided in the User Agreement or otherwise agreed by Invown.com or required by applicable law.  User also acknowledges and agrees that the Terms of Service provide a dispute resolution process as a way for User to resolve disputes.  To the extent permitted by applicable law, User therefore agrees not to ask its credit card company, bank, or another payment provider to chargeback any Fees charged pursuant to a User Agreement for any reason.  A chargeback in breach of the foregoing obligation is a material breach of the Terms of Service.  If User initiates a chargeback in violation of this Agreement, User agrees that Invown.com may dispute or appeal the chargeback and institute collection action against User and may pursue any and all other remedies allowed by law.

5.5   PAYMENT METHODS

In order to use the Site and Service, User must provide account information for at least one Payment Method authorized by Invown.com.  User hereby authorizes Invown.com to run authorizations on all Payment Methods provided by User, to store banking or charge card or other financial details as User’s Payment Method, and to charge User’s Payment Method for Fees and any other costs as provided in the Terms of Service and the User Agreement.  User acknowledges and agrees that Invown.com is not required to offer any specific Payment Method.

By providing Payment Method information through the Site, User represents, warrants, and covenants that: (a) User is legally authorized to provide such information; (b) User is legally authorized to perform payments using the Payment Method(s); and (c) such action does not violate the terms and conditions applicable to User’s use of such Payment Method(s) or applicable law.  When User authorizes a payment using a Payment Method via the Site, User represents, warrants, and covenants that there are sufficient funds or credit available to complete the payment using the designated Payment Method.  To the extent that any amounts owed under this Agreement or the other Terms of Service cannot be collected from User’s Payment Method(s), User is solely responsible for paying such amounts by other means.

5.6   US DOLLARS AND FOREIGN CURRENCY CONVERSION

The Site and the Service operate in U.S. Dollars.  If User’s currency, charge or debit card or other Payment Method is denominated in a currency other than U.S. Dollars and requires currency conversion to make payments in U.S. Dollars, Invown.com will charge User’s Payment Method in U.S. Dollars and User’s Payment Method provider will convert the payment at a foreign currency conversion rate selected by User’s Payment Method provider.  User’s Payment Method provider may also charge fees directly to the Payment Method used to fund a cross-border payment even when no currency conversion is involved.  User’s authorization of a payment using a foreign currency conversion rate displayed on the Site is at User’s sole risk.  Invown.com and its Affiliates are not responsible for currency fluctuations that occur when billing or crediting a Payment Method denominated in a currency other than U.S. Dollars.

11.  DISPUTE RESOLUTION

11.1   DISPUTE PROCESS AND SCOPE

If a dispute arises between you and Invown.com or our Affiliates, our goal is to resolve the dispute quickly and cost-effectively.  Accordingly, you, Invown.com, and our Affiliates agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy that arises out of or relates to this Agreement, the other Terms of Service, your relationship with Invown.com, the termination of your relationship with Invown.com or the Service (each, a “Claim”) in accordance with this Section.  For the avoidance of doubt, Claims include but are not limited to, all claims, disputes, or controversies arising out of or relating to the Terms of Service, any payments or monies you claim are due to you from Invown.com or its Affiliates or successors, trade secrets, unfair competition, false advertising, consumer protection, privacy, compensation, classification, expense reimbursement, termination, discrimination or harassment and claims arising under the Uniform Trade Secrets Act as enacted in any state, state statutes or regulations addressing the same or similar subject matters, and all other federal or state legal claims arising out of or relating to your relationship with Invown.com or the termination of that relationship.  Only with respect to the Arbitration Provision, Claims do not include disputes arising out of either party’s intellectual property rights for which a provisional remedy or equitable relief is sought or disputes that may not be subject to a pre-dispute arbitration agreement as provided by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Public Law 111-203) and are excluded from the coverage of the Arbitration Provision.  You agree that any Claim must be resolved as described in the subsections below titled “Informal Dispute Resolution” and “Mandatory Binding Arbitration”.  You understand and agree (i) that the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, consolidated action or private attorney general action) unless both you and Invown.com specifically agree to do so following initiation of the arbitration and (ii) that you and Invown.com are each waiving the right to a jury trial or a trial before a judge in a public court.

11.2   INFORMAL DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Before serving a demand for arbitration of a Claim, you agree to first notify Invown.com of the Claim addressed to Invown Corp., PO BOX 5292, Lancaster PA 17606 or by email to support@Invown.com, and Invown.com agrees to provide to you a notice at your email address on file (in each case, a “Notice”) and seek informal resolution of the Claim.  Any Notice from you must include your name, pertinent account information, a brief description of the Claim, and your contact information so that we may evaluate the Claim and attempt to informally resolve the Claim.  Any Notice from Invown.com must include pertinent account information, a brief description of the Claim, and Invown.com’s contact information, so that you may evaluate the Claim and attempt to informally resolve the Claim.  Both you and Invown.com will have 60 days from the date of the receipt of the Notice to informally resolve the other party’s Claim, which, if successful, will avoid the need for further action.

11.3   MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION

Any unresolved controversy or Claim between you and Invown.com arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the Terms of Service and not resolved informally, except as (i) otherwise provided in this Agreement, or (ii) any such controversies or Claims arising out of either party’s intellectual property rights for which a provisional remedy or equitable relief is sought, shall be submitted to arbitration. You and Invown each irrevocably submit all disputes arising under this agreement to arbitration in the City of Lancaster, State of Pennsylvania before a single arbitrator of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The arbitrator shall be selected by application of the rules of the AAA, or by our mutual agreement.  Each party shall be responsible for its own costs associated with the arbitration, except that the costs of the arbitrator shall be equally divided by the parties. The award issued by the arbitrator may be confirmed in a judgment by any federal or state court of competent jurisdiction. You and Invown.com each consent to personal jurisdiction for any equitable action sought in any court of Lancaster County, State of Pennsylvania, having subject matter jurisdiction.  You agree that this dispute process is the EXCLUSIVE method of resolving all such disputes.

11.4   CHOICE OF LAW

This Agreement, the other Terms of Service, and any Claim will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Pennsylvania, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.

12.  INDEMNIFICATION

You will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Invown.com, our Affiliates, and our respective directors, officers, employees, representatives, and agents (each an “Indemnified Party”) from any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs, losses, and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees and all related costs and expenses) arising from or relating to any claim, suit, proceeding, demand, or action brought by you or a third-party or other User against an Indemnified Party relating to: (a) use of the Site and the Service by you or your agents, including any payment obligations incurred through use of the Service; (b) failure to comply with the Terms of Service by you or your agents; (c) failure to comply with applicable law by you or your agents; (d) negligence, willful misconduct, or fraud by you or your agents; and (e) defamation, libel, violation of privacy rights, unfair competition, or infringement of Intellectual Property Rights or allegations thereof to the extent caused by you or your agents.

13.  AGREEMENT TERM AND TERMINATION

13.1   EFFECTIVE DATE; METHOD OF TERMINATION

The Terms of Service, as amended from time to time, will become effective on the later of the Effective Date or on your first visit to the Site and will remain in effect for the duration of your use of the Site or Service.  Upon termination of your User Agreement for any reason, except as otherwise provided herein, this Agreement and all Terms of Service will be terminated, and you will not be permitted to use the Site or Service unless and until a replacement User Agreement and other Terms of Service are executed by both parties.  You may provide written notice of termination to support@Invown.com.  We may provide written notice of termination to your email address on file.  In the event this Agreement is terminated, your right to use the Site is automatically revoked, and your Account will be closed; however, you will continue to be obligated to pay any amounts accrued but unpaid as of the date of termination to Invown.com for any Service.  Without limiting any other provisions of the Terms of Service, the termination of this Agreement for any reason will not release you or Invown.com from any obligations incurred prior to termination of this Agreement or that thereafter may accrue in respect of any act or omission prior to such termination.  Those portions of the Terms of Service necessary to implement the foregoing survive termination of this Agreement for any reason.

13.2   ACCOUNT SUSPENSION, REVOCATION OR CLOSURE

(a) Without limiting Invown.com’s other rights or remedies, we may temporarily suspend, indefinitely suspend, or permanently revoke your access to the Site and refuse to provide any or all Service to you if: (i) you breach the letter or spirit of any terms and conditions of this Agreement, the User Agreement  or other parts of the Terms of Service; (ii) we suspect or become aware that you have provided false or misleading information to us; or (iii) we believe, in our sole discretion, that your actions may cause legal liability for you, our Users, or Invown.com or our Affiliates or may be contrary to the interests of the Site or the User community or may involve illicit activity.  If your Account is suspended or closed, you may not use the Site under the same Account or a different Account or reregister under a new Account without Invown.com’s prior written consent.  If you attempt to use the Site under a different Account, we reserve the right to reclaim available funds in that Account and/or use an available bank account or charge or debit card or other Payment Method you have provided to pay for any amounts owed by you to the extent permitted by applicable law.

(b)  If your Account is closed for any reason, you will no longer have access to data, messages, files, and other material you keep on the Site.  If practicable or required by law, Invown.com will retain this information for a period of up to five years from the date of closure.  However, you understand that any closure of your Account may involve deletion of any content stored in your Account for which Invown.com will have no liability whatsoever.

13.3   CONSEQUENCES OF AGREEMENT TERMINATION

(a) Termination of this Agreement and/or closing of your Account will not relieve you of the requirement to pay Fees incurred before termination of this Agreement, which Fees, together with any applicable taxes, you hereby authorize Invown.com to charge to your financial account or credit or debit card pursuant to Section 5 of this Agreement (Payment Terms).

(b) Except as otherwise required by applicable law, we will notify you if we close your Account, unless we believe, in our sole judgment, that giving notice may cause damage.

13.4   SURVIVAL

After this Agreement terminates, the terms of this Agreement and the other Terms of Service that expressly or by their nature contemplate performance, after the Agreement terminates or expires, will survive and continue in full force and effect. For example, the provisions protecting Confidential Information, requiring arbitration, protecting intellectual property, indemnification, payment of Fees, reimbursement and setting forth limitations of liability each, by their nature, contemplate performance or observance after this Agreement terminates.

14.  GENERAL

14.1   ENTIRE AGREEMENT

This Agreement, together with the User Agreement and other Terms of Service, sets forth the entire agreement and understanding between you and Invown.com relating to the subject matter hereof and thereof and cancels and supersedes any prior or contemporaneous discussions, agreements, representations, warranties, and other communications between you and us, written or oral, to the extent they relate in any way to the subject matter hereof and thereof.  The section headings in the Terms of Service are included for ease of reference only and have no binding effect.  Even though Invown.com drafted the Terms of Service, you represent that you had ample time to review and decide whether to agree to the Terms of Service.  If an ambiguity or question of intent or interpretation of the Terms of Service arises, no presumption or burden of proof will arise favoring or disfavoring you or Invown.com because of the authorship of any provision of the Terms of Service.

14.2   SIDE AGREEMENTS

The terms and conditions of this Agreement and the other Terms of Service will govern and supersede any term or condition in any previous agreement or subsequent side agreement that purports to expand Invown.com’s obligations or restrict Invown.com’s rights under the Terms of Service.

14.3   COMPLIANCE

You will not violate any applicable foreign, federal, state, or local laws or third-party rights on or related to the Site or Service.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, You agree to comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including, but not limited to, securities laws and related regulations and governmental requirements and third parties’ Intellectual Property Rights.

14.4   MODIFICATIONS

No modification or amendment to the Terms of Service will be binding upon Invown.com unless in a written instrument signed by a duly authorized representative of Invown.com. For the purposes of this subsection, a written instrument will expressly exclude electronic communications, such as email and electronic notices.  This Section 14.4 (Modifications) does not apply to amendments to the Terms of Service posted by Invown.com to the Site from time to time.

14.5   NO WAIVER

The failure or delay of either party to exercise or enforce any right or claim does not constitute a waiver of such right or claim and will in no way affect that party’s right to later enforce or exercise it, unless such party issues an express written waiver, signed by a duly authorized representative of such party.

14.6   ASSIGNABILITY

User shall not assign this Agreement or any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the written consent of Invown in the form of a written instrument (and, for the purposes of this section, a written instrument will expressly exclude electronic communications such as email and electronic notices). Any attempted assignment or transfer in violation of this subsection will be null and void.  Invown shall have the right to assign its rights or delegate any of its responsibilities under the Terms of Service to an Affiliate or in connection with a merger, consolidation or reorganization of Invown or the sale of substantially all of its assets. Subject to the foregoing restrictions, the Terms of Service will inure to the benefit of the successors and permitted assigns of the parties.

14.7   SEVERABILITY

If and to the extent any provision of this Agreement or the other Terms of Service is held illegal, invalid, or unenforceable in whole or in part under applicable law, such provision or such portion thereof will be ineffective as to the jurisdiction in which it is illegal, invalid, or unenforceable to the extent of its illegality, invalidity, or unenforceability and will be deemed modified to the extent necessary to conform to applicable law so as to give the maximum effect to the intent of the parties.  The illegality, invalidity, or unenforceability of such provision in that jurisdiction will not in any way affect the legality, validity, or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction or of any other provision in any jurisdiction.

14.8   FORCE MAJEURE

The parties to this Agreement will not be responsible for the failure to perform or any delay in performance of any obligation hereunder due to labor disturbances, accidents, fires, floods, telecommunications or Internet failures, epidemics, pandemics, strikes, wars, riots, rebellions, insurrections, blockades, acts of government, governmental requirements and regulations or restrictions imposed by law or any other similar conditions beyond the reasonable control of such party.  The time for performance of such party will be extended by the period of such delay.  Irrespective of any extension of time, if an event of Force Majeure occurs and its effect continues for a period of 60 days, either the party may give to the other a 30-day notice of termination.  If, at the end of the 30-day period, the effect of the Force Majeure continues, the Agreement and the other Terms of Service will terminate.

14.9   COMMUNICATIONS DECENCY ACT

We are not liable for any defamatory Content posted on the Site by any third party. Although we may choose to edit or delete any clearly defamatory Content, we are not required to do so, and we reserve all defenses for such speech made available to us by Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, applicable statutes, the common law, and the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. If you are considering attempting to circumvent these defenses by filing suit against us in another country for Content that a third party has posted to the Site, we recommend that you review the Securing the Protection of our Enduring and Established Constitutional Heritage (SPEECH) Act as passed by the United States Congress, which makes foreign libel judgments unenforceable in U.S. courts unless those judgments comply with the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.

Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is effective as of July 6, 2020.

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you of our policies and procedures for the collection, use, and disclosure of information through https://www.invown.com (the “Site”), and any other websites, features, applications, widgets, or online services that are owned or controlled by Invown Corp. or its affiliates or service providers (collectively, “Invown.com”) and that post a link to this Privacy Policy (together with the Site, the “Service”), as well as any information Invown.com collects offline in connection with the Service. It also describes the choices available to you regarding the use of, your access to, and how to update and correct your personal information. Note that we combine the information we collect from you from the Site, through the Service generally, and offline.   If you do not agree to any part of this Privacy Policy, then we cannot provide the Service to you, and you should not proceed with accessing the Site.

By accessing or using the Service, you consent to the information collection, disclosure, and use practices described in this Privacy Policy. Please note that certain features or services referenced in this Privacy Policy may not be offered on the Service at all times. Please also review our Terms of Service, which governs your use of the Service, and which is accessible at https://Invown.com/Terms.

INFORMATION COLLECTION

Invown.com collects the following types of information:

INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US
  • Personal Information: In the course of using the Service, we may require or otherwise collect information that identifies you as a specific individual and can be used to contact or identify you (“Personal Information”). Examples of Personal Information include your name, email address, company address, billing address, phone number, IP address, password, and other information you provide us.
  • Payment Information: If you use the Service to make payments, we will also collect certain payment information, such as credit card or other financial account information and billing address.
  • Identity Verification: We may collect Personal Information, such as your date of birth and taxpayer identification number, to validate your identity or as may be required by law, such as to complete tax filings. We may request documents to verify this information, such as a copy of your government-issued identification or company certificate of good standing or photo or a billing statement.
  • General Audience Service: The Service is a general audience and intended for users age 18 and older. All of our Services, including our Website, are intended for adult audiences and are not meant to address anyone under the age of 18 (“Children”). As such, Children under 18 may not use our Website. If you are under 18, do not attempt to register for or use any of our Services, including our Website, and do not provide us any Personal Information about yourself.  We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has violated this Privacy Policy and provided us with Personal Information, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Information from children without verification of parental consent, we will take steps to remove that information from our servers.
  • Non-Identifying Information/Usernames: We also may collect other information, such as zip codes, demographic data, information regarding your use of the Service, and general project-related data (“Non-Identifying Information”). We may aggregate information collected from Invown.com registered and non-registered users (together, “Invown.com Users”).  In some cases, we may render Personal Information (generally, email address) into a form of Non-Identifying Information referred to in this Privacy Policy as “Hashed Information.” This is typically accomplished using a mathematical process (commonly known as a hash function) to convert information into a code. The code does not identify you directly, but it may be used to connect your activity and interests.
  • Combination of Personal and Non-Identifying Information: Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers in a way that enables you to be identified (for example, combining information with your name), but the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information (for example, your viewing preferences). We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information, but Invown.com will treat the combined information as Personal Information.
  • Collection of Third-Party Personal Information: We collect the following personal information from you about your contacts: First, last name and email address when you provide it to us.
INFORMATION RECEIVED FROM THIRD PARTIES

We also may receive information about you from third parties. For example, we may supplement the information we collect with outside records or third parties may provide at your request (such as if you choose to sign in with a third-party service). If we combine the information we receive from others with information we collect through the Service, we will treat the combined information as described in this Privacy Policy.

INFORMATION COLLECTED FROM USERS AUTOMATICALLY

We and our third-party service providers, including analytics and third-party content providers, may automatically collect certain information from you whenever you access or interact with the Service. This information may include, among other information, the browser and operating system you are using, the URL or advertisement that referred you to the Service, the search terms you entered into a search engine that led you to the Service, areas within the Service that you visited, and other information commonly shared when browsers communicate with websites. We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve the services we offer you and to improve marketing, analytics, and site functionality.

The information we collect also includes the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address or other unique device identifiers (“Device Identifier”) for any device (computer, mobile phone, tablet, etc.) used to access the Service. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned or connected to the device you use to access the Service, and our servers identify your device by its Device Identifier. Some mobile service providers may also provide us or our third-party service providers with information regarding the physical location of the device used to access the Service.

TECHNOLOGIES WE USE

  • Browser: Certain information is collected by most browsers, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, operating system version, and Internet browser type and version. We may collect similar information, such as your device type and identifier if you access this Site through a mobile Device.
  • IP Address: Your IP Address is a number that is automatically assigned by your Internet Service Provider to the computer that you are using. An IP Address is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a User visits this Site, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that were visited. Collecting IP Addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is done automatically by many websites. We use IP Addresses for purposes such as calculating Site usage levels, helping diagnose server problems, and administering this Site.
  • Cookies: Like many websites, we and our marketing partners, affiliates, analytics, and service providers use “cookies” to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer’s hard disk for record-keeping purposes. We use both persistent cookies that remain on your computer or similar device (such as to save your registration ID and login password for future logins to the Service and to track your compliance with the Invown.com Terms of Service) and session ID cookies, which expire at the end of your browser session (for example, to enable certain features of the Service, to better understand how Invown.com Users interact with the Service and to monitor aggregate usage by Invown.com Users and web traffic routing on the Service). You may be able to instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all functionality of the Service.  For further information on cookies and how they are used for the Service, please read the Cookie Policy section of our Privacy Policy.
  • Pixel Tags, Google Analytics, Web Beacons, Clear GIFs, and Other Similar Technologies: We and our marketing partners, affiliates, analytics, and service providers may also employ these technologies to help us keep track of what content on our Service is effective and to serve relevant advertising to you.

SOCIAL NETWORKING SERVICES

We may from time to time allow you to register to join the Service directly via the Service or, at our option, by logging into your account with a third party social networking service (“SNS”) via our Service (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Google and other third party services that let you sign in using your existing credentials with those services). If you choose to register via an SNS or to later link your account with the Service to your account with an SNS, we will use the Personal Information you have provided to the SNS (such as your name, email address, gender and other information you make publicly available via the SNS) to create your account. Note that the information we collect from and through a SNS may depend on the privacy settings you have set with the SNS and the permissions you grant to us in connection with linking your account with the Service to your account with an SNS.  Other than what we may share with the SNS as described below, the Personal Information a SNS has about you is obtained by the SNS independent of our Service, and Invown.com is not responsible for it.

The Invown.com Service also may permit additional interactions between it and a third-party website, service, or other content provider, such as enabling you to “like” or share content to a third party SNS. If you choose to “like” or share content, or to otherwise share information from or via our Service with a third party site or service, that information may be publicly displayed, and the third party may have access to information about you and your use of our Service (and we may have access to information about you from that third party). These third parties may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our site, may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly and may even track you when you do not interact with the feature.  Your interactions with third parties through an SNS or similar features are governed by the respective privacy policies of those third parties.  If you have engaged any third-party service providers, their respective privacy policies will govern their tracking and collection of information. You should review these third-party policies to understand these practices.

You represent that you are entitled to use your SNS account for the purposes described herein without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions that govern the SNS, and without obligating Invown.com to pay any fees or making Invown.com subject to any usage limitations imposed by such SNS. You can disable the link between your Invown.com account and your SNS account at any time though the “Settings” section of our Service. Please note that your relationship with any SNS is governed solely by your agreement(s) with such SNS. If your SNS account terminates, then functions enabled through the link between your Invown.com account and your SNS account will terminate as well.

While we may use a variety of service providers to perform advertising services, some of these companies are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) or the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. You may want to visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp, which provides information regarding targeted advertising and the “opt-out” procedures of NAI members. You may also want to visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/, which provides information regarding targeted advertising and offers an “opt-out” by participating companies in the DAA Self-Regulatory Program. You may also opt-out by contacting us at support@Invown.com. Please note that opting out through these mechanisms does not opt you out of being served advertising, and you will continue to receive generic ads while online.

YOUR CHOICES AND OPTING OUT

Invown.com Users may update their choices regarding the types of communications you receive from us through your online account. You also may opt-out of receiving marketing emails from us by following the opt-out instructions provided in those emails. Please note that we reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to your account or use of the Service (for example, administrative and service announcements) via email and other means and these transactional account messages may be unaffected if you opt-out from receiving marketing communications.

You may access, correct, or request deletion of your personal information by making updates to that information or by contacting Invown.com through your online account. If you request to access all Personal Information you’ve submitted, we will respond to your request to access within 30 days. If you completely delete all such information, then your account may become deactivated. If your account is deactivated or you ask to close your account, you will no longer be able to use the Service. If you would like us to delete your account in our system, you can do so by contacting us at support@Invown.com. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor your request; however, certain information will actively persist on the Service even if you close your account, including messages you posted to the Service. In addition, your Personal Information may remain in our archives and information you update or delete, or information within a closed account may persist internally or for our administrative purposes. It is not always possible to completely remove or delete information from our databases. In addition, we typically will not remove information you posted publicly through or on the Service. Bear in mind that neither you nor Invown.com can delete all copies of information that has been previously shared with others on the Service.

SECURITY

Invown.com takes commercially reasonable steps to help protect and secure the information it collects and stores about Invown.com Users. All access to the Site is encrypted using industry-standard transport layer security technology (TLS). When you enter sensitive information (such as tax identification number) we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We also use HTTP strict transport security to add an additional layer of protection for our Invown.com Users. But remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Thus, while we strive to protect your personal data, Invown.com cannot ensure and does not warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.

INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

Invown.com is a United States company and the Site and Service is intended only for United States residents. If you are located outside the United States and choose to provide information to us, Invown.com transfers Personal Information to the United States for processing. The U.S. may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information. When we transfer your information to the U.S., we will protect it as described in this Privacy Policy. By visiting the Service, or providing Invown.com with any information, you represent to us that you are a resident of the United States, that only United States laws apply to your use of the Site and Service and that you fully understand and unambiguously consent to the processing and storage of your information in the United States.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES

Our Service may contain links to other websites. If you choose to click on a third-party link, you will be directed to that third party’s website. The fact that we link to a website is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third-party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit Personal Information from you. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.

YOUR PROFILE

The profile you create on our site will not be publicly accessible unless otherwise indicated in the Terms of Service. Your profile and Personal Information may be shared with certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to us, including, without limitation, hosting and maintenance, billing, customer relationship, database storage and management, and direct marketing campaigns, but only to the extent necessary to perform these functions and provide such services, and only pursuant to binding contractual obligations requiring such third parties to maintain the privacy and security of your data.  You may change the privacy settings of your profile through your account dashboard.

PHISHING

Phishing websites imitate legitimate websites in order to obtain personal or financial information. Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to Invown.com. For more information about phishing, visit the website of the Federal Trade Commission at  http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0003-phishing. In addition, if you believe you have received an email or had a similar interaction with a third party pretending to be Invown.com, please report it at support@Invown.com.  

COOKIE POLICY

Invown.com uses “cookies” in conjunction with the Site and Service to obtain information. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your device (e.g., your phone or your computer) for record-keeping purposes. For example, a cookie could allow the Service to recognize your browser, while another could store your preferences and other information. Your browser may allow you to set how it handles cookies, such as declining all cookies or prompting you to decide whether to accept each cookie. But please note that some parts of the Service may not work as intended or may not work at all without cookies.

TYPES OF COOKIES

There are two types of cookies used on the Site, namely “persistent cookies” and “session cookies”. Session cookies will normally expire when you close your browser, while persistent cookies will remain on your device after you close your browser and can be used again the next time you access the Site.

Invown.com COOKIES

Invown.com may place our cookies on your device via the Site. Accordingly, our Privacy Policy will apply to our treatment of the information we obtain via our cookies.  The Site may also use other technologies with similar functionality to cookies, such as web beacons and tracking URLs to obtain Log Data about users. We may also use web beacons and tracking URLs in our messages to you to determine whether you have opened a certain message or accessed a certain link.

THIRD-PARTY COOKIES

We may also allow service providers to place cookies on your device. For example, we might interact with and allow you to sign in via Facebook, in which event Facebook might also set cookies on your device. As further explained below, third parties may also place cookies on your device for advertising purposes.

HOW WE USE INVOWN.COM COOKIES

Invown.com uses cookies for a number of purposes, such as the following:

  • to enable, facilitate and streamline the functioning of the Site across different web pages and browser sessions;
  • to simplify your access to and use of the Site and make it more seamless;
  • to monitor and analyze the performance, operation and effectiveness of the Site, so that we can improve and optimize it; and
  • to show you content (which may include advertisements) that is more relevant to you.

THIRD-PARTY COOKIES USES AND SETTINGS

  • Third-Party cookies are intended to obtain information to help them provide services to Invown.com. For example, third party companies and individuals we engage to provide services to us may track your behavior on our Site to market and advertise Invown.com services to you.
  • Third parties that use cookies and other tracking technologies to deliver targeted advertisements on our Site and/or third party websites may offer you a way to prevent such targeted advertisements by opting-out at the websites of industry groups such as the Network Advertising Initiative (http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/) and/or the Digital Advertising Alliance (http://www.aboutads.info/choices/). You may also be able to control advertising cookies provided by publishers, for example Google’s Ad Preference Manager (https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/).
  • Please note that even if you choose to opt-out of receiving targeted advertising, you may still receive advertising on the Site – it just will not be tailored to your interests. In addition, Facebook places a cookie via the Site that allows Facebook to obtain aggregated, non-Personal Information to optimize their services. For example, if a user clicks on an advertisement for the Invown.com mobile app on Facebook and subsequently installs the app, this cookie will inform Facebook that a user (who is not personally identified) has installed the app after clicking on the advertisement. This cookie may also inform Facebook that a user is using the app, without identifying the specific actions taken by the user in the app.

DISABLING COOKIES

Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can modify your browser setting to decline cookies by visiting the Help portion of your browser’s toolbar. If you choose to decline cookies, please note that you may not be able to sign in, customize, or use some of the interactive features of the Site.  Flash cookies operate differently than browser cookies, and cookie management tools available in a web browser will not remove flash cookies. To learn more about how to manage flash cookies, you can visit the Adobe website (http://www.adobe.com/) and make changes at the Global Privacy Settings Panel: (http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager02.html).

We can change this Cookie Policy at any time. If we make material changes to the Cookie Policy, we will let you know either by posting the changed Cookie Policy on the Site or by sending you an email. It’s important that you review the changed Cookie Policy.

Invown.com may update this Privacy Policy at any time and any changes will be effective upon posting. In the event that there are material changes to the way we treat your Personal Information, we will display a notice on the Site prior to the change becoming effective.

SUBMITTING A VERIFIABLE REQUEST

As mentioned above, California residents have certain rights to access, delete, or otherwise control the use, collection, and/or disclosure of their information. Invown.com will respond to an individual’s “verifiable request” to exercise his or her rights under such laws – that is, where Invown.com has received a request purporting to be from a particular individual, and Invown.com has been able to verify the individual’s identity. The need to verify an individual’s identity is critical to protecting your information and ensuring that your information is not shared with anyone pretending to be you or someone who is not authorized to act as your agent on your behalf.

You may submit a verifiable request via either method listed in the “How to Contact Us for CCPA Requests” section below, or as otherwise provided on our Website.  Invown.com will ask you to provide information about yourself so that we can verify your identity as part of this process. This information may include your name, your address, your account information, and any other information deemed necessary by Invown.com to reasonably verify your identity so we can ensure that your information is not shared with anyone impersonating you.

We may ask for additional information if we have difficulty confirming your identity. We will not share your information or honor other requests in those situations in which we are unable to confirm a request for your information is a “verifiable request.”

Under California law a consumer can appoint an “authorized agent” to make certain verifiable requests upon their behalf, such as the right to know what information we collect about the consumer or to request deletion of the consumer’s information. Because the security and privacy of your information is paramount, we will ask that you identify and provide permission in writing for such person to act as your authorized agent and exercise your applicable rights under California law in such situations. This may require us to contact you directly and alert you that an individual has claimed to be your agent and is attempting to access or delete your information. We will also independently verify your identity to ensure that an unauthorized person is not attempting to impersonate you and exercise your rights without authorization. We will not share your information or honor any other requests in those situations where you cannot or do not grant permission in writing for an identified authorized agent to act on your behalf or where we cannot independently verify your identity.

HOW TO CONTACT US FOR CCPA REQUESTS

ISSUER REQUIREMENTS

Unless a crowdfunding offering qualifies for an exemption, all securities offered and/or sold in the United States are required to be registered with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).  Invown.com currently only allows Issuer Campaigns to create offerings under Regulation Crowdfunding.  By commencing a Campaign, you represent, certify and warrant to us and each Investor that your offering will fully comply with all applicable United States securities laws and SEC regulations associated with your Campaign.

Regulation Crowdfunding:

Regulation Crowdfunding enables eligible companies to offer and sell securities through crowdfunding. The rules:

  • require all transactions under Regulation Crowdfunding to take place online through an SEC-registered intermediary, either a broker-dealer or a funding portal,
  • permit a company to raise a maximum aggregate amount of $5,000,000 through crowdfunding offerings in a 12-month period,
  • limit the amount individual investors can invest across all crowdfunding offerings in a 12-month period,
  • require disclosure of information in filings with the SEC and to investors and the intermediary facilitating the offering, and
  • securities purchased in a crowdfunding transaction generally cannot be resold for one year.

Any and all Issuers issuing securities in reliance on Regulation Crowdfunding are subject to the following SEC regulations and Invown policies and guidelines:

  • Issuers are permitted to raise a maximum aggregate amount of $5,000,000 in a 12-month period.
    • In determining the amount that may be sold in a particular offering, an Issuer must count:
      • The amount it has already sold (including amounts sold by entities controlled by, or under common control with, the Issuer, as well as any amounts sold by any predecessor of the Issuer) in reliance on Regulation Crowdfunding during the 12-month period preceding the expected date of sale, plus
      • The amount the Issuer intends to raise in reliance on Regulation Crowdfunding in this offering.
    • Certain Issuers are not eligible to use the Regulation Crowdfunding exemption. Each Issuer’s eligibility will be considered during its Invown application. Companies not eligible to use the Regulation Crowdfunding exemption include:
      • Non-U.S companies;
      • Companies that already are Exchange Act reporting companies;
      • Certain investment companies;
      • Companies that are disqualified under Regulation Crowdfunding’s disqualification rules;
      • companies that have failed to comply with the annual reporting requirements under Regulation Crowdfunding during the two years immediately preceding the filing of the offering statement; and
      • companies that have no specific business plan or have indicated their business plan is to engage in a merger or acquisition with an unidentified company or companies.
    • Rule 503 of Regulation Crowdfunding includes “bad actor” disqualification provisions that disqualify offerings if the Issuer or other “covered persons” have experienced a disqualifying event, such as being convicted of, or subject to court or administrative sanctions for, securities fraud or other violations of specified laws. Any and all Bad Actors, as defined by the SEC in Regulation Crowdfunding, will not be allowed to list their company on the Site.
    • Any Issuer conducting a Regulation Crowdfunding offering must electronically file its offering statement on Form C through the SEC’s Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis and Retrieval (EDGAR) system and with the intermediary facilitating the crowdfunding offering. Invown requires proof that Form C has been electronically filed and displayed on EDGAR prior to officially posting an offering on the Site.
      • Financial statement requirements are based on the amount offered and sold in reliance on Regulation Crowdfunding within the preceding 12-month period:
        • For Issuers offering $107,000 or less: Financial statements of the Issuer and certain information from the Issuer’s federal income tax returns, both certified by the principal executive officer. If, however, financial statements of the Issuer are available that have either been reviewed or audited by a public accountant that is independent of the Issuer, the Issuer must provide those financial statements instead and will not need to include the information reported on the federal income tax returns or the certification of the principal executive officer.
        • Issuers offering more than $107,000 but not more than $535,000: Financial statements reviewed by a public accountant that is independent of the Issuer. If, however, financial statements of the Issuer are available that have been audited by a public accountant that is independent of the Issuer, the Issuer must provide those financial statements instead and will not need to include the reviewed financial statements.
        • Issuers offering more than $535,000:
          • For first-time Regulation Crowdfunding Issuers: Financial statements reviewed by a public accountant that is independent of the Issuer, unless financial statements of the Issuer are available that have been audited by an independent auditor.
          • For Issuers that have previously sold securities in reliance on Regulation Crowdfunding: Financial statements audited by a public accountant that is independent of the Issuer.
        • An Issuer that sold securities in a Regulation Crowdfunding offering is required to provide an annual report on Form C-AR no later than 120 days after the end of its fiscal year. The report must be filed on EDGAR and posted on the Issuer’s Site.

The SEC regulations and Invown policies/guidelines cited above do not encompass the regulation set forth in Title III of the JOBS Act Section 4(a)(6) in its entirety.   You acknowledge and agree to fully comply with all applicable securities laws, including but not limited to guidelines and regulations set forth by the SEC in Title III of the JOBS Act Section 4(a)(6), Regulation Crowdfunding.

No Disqualifying Events:

By commencing a Campaign and creating an offering, you represent and warrant that none of the following individuals or entities associated with the Issuer are subject to any of the “Bad Actor” disqualifying events (“Disqualifying Event”) outlined in Regulation CF under the Securities Act:

  • Predecessors and any affiliated Issuers
  • Any directors, executive officers or officers, or managing members of the Issuer
  • Any investment managers and their principals
  • Any beneficial owner of 20% or more of the Issuer’s outstanding voting equity securities, calculated on the basis of voting power
  • Any promoter (as defined in Rule 405 of the Securities Act) connected with the Issuer in any capacity at the time of sale or any compensated solicitor or any director, executive officer, other officer of the compensated solicitor participating in the Offering (each, an “Issuer Covered Person” and collectively, “Issuer Covered Persons”).

You warrant and represent that you have made a good faith reasonable effort to determine whether any Issuer Covered Person is subject to a Disqualifying Event and that you have discovered no such Disqualifying Event. You acknowledge that you and Issuer are responsible for promptly notifying Invown and subscribed investors in writing should any Disqualifying Event occur or if any preceding Disqualifying Events come to your or the Issuer’s attention.

FEES 

Fees payable by you as an Issuer are:

  • 5% of investment amount upon round completion.
  • Upon the termination or abandonment of a Campaign for which the Minimum Agreed Funding was not achieved, an amount equal to the sum of the actual fees charged by the Escrow Holder and Payment Method fees incurred by the Escrow Holder (together, “Escrow Fees”) are payable to the Escrow Holder.

All payment terms are as set forth in the Terms of Service, Article 5 (Sections 5.1 through 5.6), which terms are incorporated herein and  by reference made a part hereof. 

ESCROWS

A third-party escrow agent (“Escrow Holder”) will hold all funds raised for each Campaign until the disbursement of funds by the Issuer or termination of the Campaign and offering. By using third-party escrow services, the Site is bound by its Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.  The Escrow Holder is Prime Trust LLC (www.primetrust.com), an escrow agent registered with the SEC and FINRA/SIPC,  or such other registered escrow agent as is from time to time designated by us.  By registering your Account, you agree to be bound by the services agreement of each such Escrow Holder, as modified from time to time, and you authorize the Escrow Holder to make payments and disbursements as described in the “Fees” section above.

Invown provides investors and potential investors the ability to communicate with other investors, potential investors and Issuers through a comments section on the Issuer’s virtual business pitch page.
