Welcome to the US Capital Partners online investing platform. The US Capital Partners platform and network (collectively, the "Service") are operated by US Capital Partners, Inc., a corporation registered in California (the "Company," "US Capital Partners, Inc.," and together with US Capital Global Securities, LLC, Member: FINRA/SIPC, the broker-dealer facilitating the offers and sales of securities, "we," or "us"). By accessing or using our web site at www.USCapitalPartners.net including any subdomain thereof (the "Site"), you (the "User") signify that you have read, understand and agree to be bound by these terms of service ("Terms of Service"), regardless of whether you are a registered member of the Service.
We may make changes to these Terms of Service from time to time. If we do this, we will post the changed Terms of Service on the Site and will indicate at the top of this page the date the Terms of Service were last revised. You understand and agree that your continued use of the Service or the Site after we have made any such changes constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Service.
This Site is intended solely for Users who are eighteen (18) years of age or older, and any registration by, use of or access to the Site by anyone under 18 is unauthorized, unlicensed and in violation of these Terms of Service. By using the Service or the Site, you represent and warrant that you are 18 or older and that you agree to and to abide by all of the terms and conditions of these Terms of Service.
The portion of our Service (and certain pages of the Site) that relate to making investments in the securities offered are available only to certain qualified, registered and authorized users. Such portions of our Service and the Site may thus not be available to all Users.
For persons resident in the United States, only "accredited investors" as defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), with a valid User ID and password, are authorized to invest in offerings listed on the Site (such persons being ("Accredited Investors"). In general, to qualify as an Accredited Investor, individuals must have a net worth of more than $1 million (excluding their primary residence), or gross income for each of the last two years of at least $200,000 ($300,000 jointly with their spouse) with a reasonable expectation of a similarly qualifying income during the current year. Prior to making any investment through the Service or the Site, you will be required to provide adequate proof that you are an Accredited Investor. Your failure to provide any information and documentation requested to confirm your status as an Accredited Investor will be cause for the Company to prevent you from making investments through the Site or Service.
Persons who are resident outside of the United States are allowed access to such investment opportunities only if such access does not violate the laws of their country of residence. Our Service (and certain pages of the Site) that relate to the viewing of actual investment opportunities or to making investments in the securities offered therein may not be used by any person or entity in any jurisdiction where the provision or use thereof would be contrary to applicable laws, rules or regulations of any governmental authority or where the Company or one of its affiliates is not authorized to provide such information or services.
The securities offered on the Site have not been registered under the Securities Act, in reliance on the exemptive provisions of Section 4(2) of the Securities Act, Rule 506(c) of Regulation D, promulgated thereunder. Securities sold through private placements are restricted and not publicly tradable, and are therefore illiquid. Neither the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission nor any state securities commission or other regulatory authority has approved, passed upon or endorsed the merits of any offering on the Site.
US Capital Partners, Inc. is not a registered broker-dealer, funding portal, or investment advisor and does not conduct any activity that would require such registration. All broker-dealer services are conducted by US Capital Global Securities, LLC
Investment overviews on the Site contain summaries of the purpose and principal business terms of the investment opportunities. Such summaries are intended for informational purposes only and do not purport to be complete, and each is qualified in its entirety by reference to the more detailed discussions contained in the investor document package relating to such investment opportunity. The information contained in the Site has been presented by the Company without reference to any particular User's investment requirements or financial situation, and potential investors should consult with their own professional tax, legal and financial advisors before making any investment.
You may not become a beneficial owner of 20% or more of any issuer's outstanding voting equity securities (an "Issuer Covered Person") without becoming subject to a review of certain "bad actor" disqualifying events described in Rule 506(d) of Regulation D (a "Disqualifying Event"). You represent that you are not subject to a Disqualifying Event and that you will promptly notify the Company in writing should any Disqualifying Events be applicable to you. To the extent you are subject to a Disqualifying Event, you must notify the Company. The Company reserves the right to cancel your investment and return any funds held in escrow or otherwise paid or submitted by you.

In addition, “Confidential Information” shall include proprietary or confidential information of any third party who may disclose such information to Disclosing Party or User in the course of Disclosing Party’s business and any information that, upon receipt thereof by User, should be reasonably understood to be confidential or sensitive in nature.
1. User agrees that User will not use, disseminate, or in any way disclose any Confidential Information of Disclosing Party to any person, firm or business, except to the extent necessary for internal evaluations in connection with negotiations, discussions, and consultations with personnel or authorized representatives of Disclosing Party and for any other purpose the parties may hereafter authorize in writing. Furthermore, the existence of any business negotiations, discussions, consultations, or agreements in progress between the parties shall not be disclosed without the prior written approval of the parties.

3. User agrees that User will treat all Confidential Information of Disclosing Party with the same degree of care as User accords to User’s most important Confidential Information, but in no case less than reasonable care.
4. User agrees that User will disclose Confidential Information of Disclosing Party only to those of User’s employees or contractors (if any) who need to know such information. User warrants and certifies that such employees and contractors have previously agreed, either as a condition of employment or in order to obtain Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, to be bound by terms and conditions substantially similar to those terms and conditions applicable to User under this Agreement.
5. User shall immediately give notice to Disclosing Party of any unauthorized use or disclosure of Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information or any breach of this Agreement by any party or person. User agrees to assist Disclosing Party in remedying any such unauthorized use or disclosure of Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information and mitigating any damage resulting therefrom.

(a)was in the public domain at or subsequent to the time such portion was communicated to User by Disclosing Party through no fault of User;
(b) was rightfully in User’s possession free of any obligation of confidence at or subsequent to the time such portion was communicated to Users by Disclosing Party; or
(c) was developed by employees or agents of User independently of and without reference to any Confidential Information communicated to User by Disclosing Party.
2. A disclosure of any portion of Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, either
(a) in response to a valid order by a court or other governmental body, or
(b) otherwise required by law, shall not be considered to be a breach of this Agreement or a waiver of confidentiality for other purposes; provided, however, that User shall provide prompt prior written notice thereof to Disclosing Party to enable Disclosing Party to seek a protective order or otherwise prevent such disclosure and shall continue to protect such disclosed information as confidential under this Agreement if a protective order or like protection is obtained by Disclosing Party.

Before you decide to do business electronically with the Company, you must satisfy the following computer hardware and software requirements: access to the Internet; an active email account and related software capable of receiving email through the Internet; a major web browser which is SSL-compliant and supports secure sessions, such as [Internet Explorer 9.0 or above], or the equivalent software; and hardware capable of running this software.
The Company or an affiliate (or a third-party servicer or escrow provider that we may retain, including but not limited to GoldStar Trust Company) may receive payments, and makes all disbursements, through certified check, wire transfer or electronic funds transfers (ACH transfers) using the bank (or other financial institution) account information you provide to us. You will authorize such bank or other financial account to pay any amounts you agree to invest, and authorize the Company (or any such third-party servicer or escrow provider) to make any and all investment disbursements, to such account. You agree to provide the Company updated information regarding your bank or other account upon the Company's request and at any time that the information earlier provided is no longer valid.

The decision to do business with the Company electronically is yours. The Terms of Service inform you of your rights concerning Disclosures.
Your consent to receive Disclosures and transact business electronically, and our agreement to do so, applies to any transaction to which such Disclosures relate.
