Terms of Use

Last Updated December 19, 2016

Thank you for visiting the Greener Equity website and online services (collectively, the “Service”), brought to you by Greener Equity, Inc. (“Greener Equity” or “we” or “us” or “our”). By registering with or using Greener Equity, a person or company (“user” or “you”) agrees to these terms of use (“Terms”) and the Greener Equity Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy,” and collectively with the Terms, the “Agreements”). Any unauthorized access or use of the Services is strictly prohibited.

1. Greener Equity Permits Sharing

Greener Equity provides a place for users to build, update and share capitalization tables, often called “cap tables.” Greener Equity’s role is to make the Services available for you and other users, and permit you and the other users to share cap tables. However, Greener Equity does not control you or other users. Greener Equity does not endorse or vouch for any Greener Equity users, third parties, or information shared on the Service. You are also responsible for all information that you post or share. Greener Equity does not verify the accuracy of any information provided by you or other users. Each user is solely responsible for verifying the accuracy and completeness of any information received via the Service. Greener Equity does not verify the identity of users, and you are solely responsible for determining the identity and suitability of others who you may choose to share, contact or communicate with through the Service. Greener Equity has the right (but not the obligation), in its sole discretion, to remove or refuse access to the Service to any user at any time in Greener Equity’s sole discretion. Greener Equity does share information with third parties, including for the benefit of the Service. For example, credit cards are processed by an independent company.

2. Third-Party Content and Links

The Service may include links or references to other websites maintained by third parties over whom Greener Equity has no control. We provide links and references as a convenience only. The links and references do not imply any particular relationship with any third parties. Similarly, this Service may be accessed from third party links over which Greener Equity has no control. The third party providers of such websites shall be solely responsible for the accuracy, currency, or completeness of any information contained in or on the third party websites. You waive any claim against Greener Equity with respect to third party websites.

Any and all trademarks and service marks that appear on the Service (“Marks”) are owned by their respective owners. The use of any Mark on the Service is limited to describing the goods and services of the owner of the Mark. You may upload and use a company’s Mark in connection with the company’s cap table, but you may not associate the Mark of one company with the cap table of another, unrelated company without the prior written permission of the owner of the Mark. However, any user who uploads a Mark for use with a cap table or otherwise grants Greener Equity with a non-exclusive license to use and display the Mark in connection with the applicable cap table, and for publicity and marketing purposes to the general public, including via the Service.

The Service may contain information provided by other users and third parties. The third party provider shall be solely responsible for the accuracy, currency, and completeness of the information it provides.

3. License to User Content; Ownership of Submitted Ideas

By providing any information to Greener Equity, you:

a) grant Greener Equity a non-exclusive, worldwide, irrevocable, paid-up license to use, reproduce, publicly perform, transmit, make derivative works, and distribute the information to other users, including those users you specify to us, and

b) warrant that you have the right to grant such a license.

Notwithstanding the above, your personally-identifiable information (“Personal Information”) will only be used in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

4. User Conduct

You agree to act responsibly and to treat other users with respect. No user may use the Service to harass or abuse other users. In its sole discretion, Greener Equity may remove or terminate access to the Service to any user who harasses any other user. If Greener Equity has any reason to believe that a user has violated any Terms or the Agreements, Greener Equity may in its sole discretion terminate or block a user, or seek other remedies and damages.

You agree not to use the Service to do any of the following:

a) conduct any illegal activities;

m) interfere, disrupt, or attempt to gain unauthorized access to other accounts on the Service or any other computer network;

n) disseminate or transmit viruses, Trojan horses, or any other malicious code or programs;

v) use automated means, including but not limited to, scripts, bots, and data mining tools to collect information from the Service unless expressly authorized by Greener Equity.

These dealings are solely between you and such users, organizations and/or individuals.
