Effective Date: December 22, 2019

By accessing a Fundbox (“we”, “us”, “our” or “Fundbox”) website, mobile application (“App”) or other interface that links to these Terms of Use (“Site” or “Sites”), you agree to these Terms of Use , which include our Online Privacy Policy (collectively, “Terms”). PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS, THEN PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SITES. Please note that any application for other services provided by us or our affiliates will be subject to a separate agreement that will be provided to you. THE TERMS DO NOT COVER THESE OTHER SERVICES, unless expressly stated herein. We may change these Terms at any time, so please review them periodically. Any changes will become effective when posted on the Sites, and your continued use of the Site constitutes agreement.

1. Limitations on Use

The Sites are based in the United States for use by individual business owners and legal entities organized and authorized to do business in the U.S., and may not be used by others or used outside of the U.S. We may change, suspend, or discontinue all or any part of the Sites, or deny you access to all or any part of the Sites, without notice and without reason. By accessing the Sites, you agree that you will not:

  • use the Sites for any unlawful purpose, impersonate any person or entity, or misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity;

  • decompile, reverse engineer, or disassemble any software or other products or processes accessible through the Sites;

  • obscure, block, or interfere with any advertisements or safety features on the Sites;

  • circumvent, remove, alter, degrade, or thwart any protections in the Sites, or use the Sites to collect any market research;

  • use automated means, including spiders, robots, crawlers, or data mining tools, to download or scrape data from the Sites, directly or indirectly, except for Internet search engines (e.g., Google) and non-commercial public archives (e.g., archive.org) that comply with our robots.txt file;

  • take any action that imposes or may impose (in our discretion) an unreasonable load on our technical infrastructure; or

  • interfere with the proper operation of the Sites through the use of any virus, device, information collection or transmission mechanism, software or routine, or access or attempt to gain access to any data, files, or passwords related to the Sites through hacking, password or data mining, or any other means.

2. Accounts and Passwords

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your usernames and passwords associated with your account and the Sites. You must notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your account. You may be liable for losses or damages incurred by us or any other user of the Sites due to someone else using your username, ID, password, or other information which provides access to the Sites. We are not liable for any loss or damage you may incur as a result of your failure to comply with these requirements.

By registering as a user on the Sites, you expressly authorize Fundbox to access certain third-party websites and accounts on your behalf, to retrieve personal information and other information about you for any legitimate business purpose, subject to applicable law and our Privacy Policy. You agree that we may collect and use technical and usage data and related information about your computer or mobile device, date and time of Site access, system and Site Software, and peripherals to facilitate the provision of product support and other services to you. You grant permission to us to use this information to improve products, to provide services or technologies to you, and to provide advertising content, including working with third parties who provide targeted advertising content. Features of the Sites may request access to information contained or generated in your computer or mobile device, including location services. If you deny access to these functions, the Sites may not work as designed. For more information on how we collect, use, transfer, store and share your online data and personal information, and how you can manage your online privacy choices, please see our Online Privacy Policy.

3. Software

You are granted a non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable, personal, limited license to install and use the software and related functionality embedded in the Sites (collectively, “Software”). Certain Software that Fundbox uses to provide the Sites has been licensed from third parties (each, a “Third Party Licensor”) that are not affiliated with Fundbox. Your limited right to use the Software is revocable in the discretion of Fundbox and its Third Party Licensors. You agree to download and install all Software updates for the Sites promptly once they are available to you. Fundbox and its Third Party Licensors have no obligation to correct any bugs, defects or errors in the Sites or Software, or to otherwise support, maintain, improve, modify, upgrade, update or enhance the Sites or Software.

The Sites may contain links and may enable you to post content to third party websites that are not owned or controlled by Fundbox. We are not affiliated with, have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party websites. You (i) are solely responsible and liable for your use of and linking to third party websites and any content that you may send or post to a third party website, and (ii) expressly release Fundbox from any and all liability arising from your use of any third party website. Accordingly, we encourage you to read the terms and conditions and privacy policy of each third party website that you may choose to visit, link to or post content on.

You understand that those agreements may provide for fees, limitations and restrictions which might impact your use of the Sites (for example, your mobile service carrier or provider may impose data usage or text message charges for your use of or interaction with the App), and you agree to be solely responsible for all such fees, limitations and restrictions. You agree that only your mobile service carrier or internet service provider is responsible for its products and services. Accordingly, you agree to resolve any problems with your carrier or provider directly with your carrier or provider without involving us.

12. Governing Law

These Terms are governed by the laws of California (without regard to conflict of law provisions) and applicable federal law. Our failure to exercise or delay in enforcing any of our rights shall not constitute a waiver of such rights. These Terms, together with all other documents incorporated herein, constitutes the entire agreement with respect to the subject matter herein, provided that these Terms shall not limit or modify any other agreement you enter into with Fundbox.

Fundbox may provide you with information relating to products and services electronically from time to time. We may be required by law to give you certain information “in writing” – which means in some cases you are entitled to receive it on paper. We also need your general consent to use electronic records and signatures in our relationship with you. You will be asked to review and consent to our electronic transactions and disclosures policy as a condition to becoming a Fundbox customer.
