Welcome to Neuly. We provide a platform where entrepreneurs can meet entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, scientists, government officials, and prospective employees.
Please read on to learn the rules and restrictions that govern your use of our websites, products, services and applications (the “Service”). If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding these terms or the Service, please contact us at email@example.com.
You agree that by clicking “Join Now”, “Join Neuly”, “Register”, “Sign Up” or similar, registering, accessing or using our services (described below), you are agreeing to enter into a legally binding contract with Neuly (even if you are using our Services on behalf of a company). If you do not agree to this contract (“Contract” or “User Agreement”), do not click “Join Now” (or similar) and do not access or otherwise use any of our services. If you wish to terminate this contract, at any time you can do so by closing your account and no longer accessing or using our services.
Will these Terms ever change?
We are constantly trying to improve our Service, so these Terms may need to change along with the Service. We reserve the right to change these Terms at any time, but if we do, we will bring it to your attention by placing a notice on the Neuly website, by sending you an email, and/or by some other means.
If you don’t agree with the new Terms, you are free to reject them; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be able to use the Service. If you use the Service in any way after a change to these Terms is effective, that means you agree to all of the changes.
Except for changes by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms will be effective unless in writing and signed by you and Neuly.
What about my privacy?

If we learn we have collected personal information from a child under 16, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 16 may have provided us personal information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

1. GENERAL SECURITIES PRINCIPLES
The securities laws applicable to private company finance are complicated and occasionally ambiguous. In general, they are designed to protect unsophisticated people from making poor investment decisions. Federal securities law requires securities sold in the United States to be registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), unless the sale qualifies for an exemption. Generally, startup ventures use one or more of the “private placement” exemptions because they allow for the raising of capital without complying with the costly and time-consuming registration process. One of the requirements of the private placement exemption is that neither the company which is offering its securities nor any person acting on such issuer’s behalf may offer or sell the securities by any form of “general solicitation”, except where, as provided under Rule 506(c) of Regulation D, the issuer has taken reasonable steps to verify that all of the investors in the offering are Accredited Investors. Furthermore, many states and foreign countries all have their own regulations governing securities transactions that must be observed. Investors from Canada must also satisfy certain conditions to create Investor accounts. You must make your own assessment regarding regulatory requirements as may be applied to your activities on the Site.
