We may make changes to these Terms of Use from time to time. If we do this, we will post the changed Terms of Use on the website and will indicate the most recent date of change at the top of this page; you should check this Agreement periodically for changes. All changes shall be effective upon posting. You understand and agree that your continued use of the Service—or the Site in general—after we have made any such changes constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Use. Got Capital may terminate, suspend, change, or restrict access to all or any part of this Site without notice or liability.

If you violate any of these Terms of Use, or otherwise violate an agreement between you and us, Got Capital may terminate your membership, delete your profile, and any content or information that you have posted on the Site and/or prohibit you from using or accessing the Service of the Site, at any time in its sole discretion, with or without notice, including without limitation if it believes that you are under eighteen (18) years of age.

The copyright in all material on this Site, including without limitation the text, data, articles, design, source code, software, photos, images, and other information (collectively the “Content”), is held by Got Capital, or by the original creator of the material, and is protected by U.S. and International copyright laws and treaties. You agree that the Content may not be copied, reproduced, distributed, republished, displayed, posted, or transmitted in any form or by any means, including, but not limited to, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording, or otherwise, without the express prior written consent of Got Capital. You acknowledge that the Content is and shall remain the property of Got Capital. You may not modify, participate in the sale or transfer of, or create derivative works based on any Content, in whole or in part. The use of the Content on any other Site, including by linking or framing, or in any networked computer environment for any purpose, is prohibited without Got Capital’s prior written approval. You also may not, without Got Capital’s express written permission, “mirror” any material contained on this Site on any other server. Any unauthorized use of any Content on this Site may violate copyright laws, trademark laws, the laws of privacy and publicity, and communications statutes and regulations. You agree to use the Content and Site only for lawful purposes. You are prohibited from any use of the Content or Site that would constitute a violation of any applicable law, regulation, rule or ordinance of any nationality, state, or locality, or of any international law or treaty, or that could give rise to any civil or criminal liability. Any unauthorized use of the Site, including but not limited to unauthorized entry into Got Capital’s systems, misuse of passwords, or misuse of any information posted on the Site is strictly prohibited. Got Capital makes no claims concerning whether the Content may be downloaded or is appropriate for use outside of the U.S. If you access this Site from outside of the U.S., you are solely responsible for ensuring compliance with the laws of your specific jurisdiction. Your eligibility for particular products or services is subject to final determination by Got Capital.


Content And Use Restrictions

You agree not to post, upload, publish, display, transmit, store, or otherwise make or attempt to make publicly available on the Site or on any other website, or in any email, blog, forum, medium, or other communication of any kind, any private or personally identifiable information of any Got Capital member or other third party, including, without limitation, names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers, or bank account or credit card numbers, whether or not such private or personally identifiable information is displayed on or ascertainable from the Site, or obtained or obtainable from sources unrelated to the Site (such as from a “Google® search” or other online research). You agree to not use the Site or any Content to upload, post, email, transmit, or otherwise make available any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, “junk mail,” “spam,” “chain letters,” “pyramid schemes,” or any other form of commercial or non-commercial solicitation or bulk communications of any kind to any Got Capital member or other third party. In order to protect Got Capital members from such advertising or solicitation, Got Capital reserves the right to restrict the number of emails which a member may send to other members in any 24-hour period to a number which Got Capital deems appropriate in our sole discretion. Directly contacting more than ten (10) Got Capital members with a materially identical message within a 24-hour period is presumed to be spam and a violation of this Agreement.

The underlined subsections that follow inform you of your rights when receiving Communications from us electronically: Electronic Communications. You agree that all Communications from us and our agents relating to your use of the Got Capital platform may be provided or made available to you electronically by email or at our website.

Hardware and Software Requirements. To access and retain the Communications electronically, you will need to use a computer with a modern operating system and a modern web browser (version of browser software of hardware should be less than 5 years old). For best performance, please use the current release version of the web browser of your choice. Mobile Technology. If you are accessing our site electronically through a mobile device such as a tablet, smart-phone, or similar device, you must be able to print and save the transmitted Communications. You can find apps that support printing and saving for most mobile devices through your mobile device’s app store. If your mobile device does not have this functionality, you must access our website through alternate means that provide you with the ability to print and save the Communications.

If you withdraw your consent, from that time forward: (1) you cannot place any further listings or bids through the Got Capital platform; and (2) any pending listings or bids will automatically terminate and be removed from the Got Capital platform. The withdrawal of your consent will not affect the legal validity and enforceability of any pending loans obtained through the Got Capital platform, or any electronic Communications provided or business transacted between us prior to the time you withdraw your consent. With respect to pending loans on which you are a borrower, lender, or some other designated party, we will send you any further Communications by mail or other non-electronic means. Assignment.
