iConnections’ Terms of Service
PLEASE REVIEW THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY AS THEY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND CONTAIN A MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISION AND A WAIVER OF CLASS ACTION REMEDIES.
These Terms of Service (these “Terms”) form a binding legal agreement between iConnections LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“iConnections”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) and you regarding the use of the iConnections platform located at https://app.iconnections.io and related offerings and services whether in-person, electronically or through the platform (collectively, with any successor or related platform the “Platform”). These Terms also include the iConnections Code of Conduct and Health and Safety Protocols.
These Terms apply to all users of the Platform, including: (i) funds or managers who register a manager account through the Platform (“Managers”); (ii) investors or allocators who register an investor account through the Platform (“Investors”); (iii) fund bundlers or marketers (“Bundlers”); (iv) Platform or Event sponsors (“Sponsors”); and (v) third-party service providers (“Service Providers”). If you have a separate negotiated contract with iConnections, that contract will govern only in the event of any conflicts between these Terms and that contract as it relates to your use of the Platform.
These Terms apply to your use of the Platform, including attendance at any Events (as defined below) through the Platform. Please review these Terms carefully. By registering an account through the Platform, you agree to be bound by these Terms. Each time you use the Platform or attend any Event, you acknowledge that you have reviewed, agree to, and will comply with these Terms and the iConnections Code of Conduct, and Health and Safety Protocols. We may update these Terms and the iConnections Code of Conduct, and Health and Safety Protocols from time to time in our discretion. We will always keep the current version of these Terms posted on this website. By using the Platform after a new version of these Terms has been posted, you agree to the terms and conditions of such version of these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, you must immediately cease your use of the Platform.
The Platform is intended to be an integral part of our conferences and other Events, including to further enable interactions between Managers, Investors, Bundlers, Sponsors, and Service Providers (all of the foregoing, including any user for which any of the foregoing has registered an account, collectively, “Users”). Accordingly, the Platform may from time-to-time host virtual or in-person events, which may be hosted by iConnections itself and/or by third parties (collectively, “Events”) or otherwise facilitate Events. See “Events” below for more information.
As stated above, the Platform will from time-to-time host, or be used to facilitate, Events. If you wish to attend a particular Event, you may be required to agree to additional terms and conditions related to such Event (which may include eligibility criteria, additional fees, and other terms). If you attend an Event hosted by a third party, you agree and acknowledge that we are not responsible for the acts or omissions of such third party and will have no liability for the carrying out of the Event. Event attendees will receive access to an Event-specific version of the Platform for the duration of the Event. If you are not an existing User but wish to attend an Event, you may still receive access to an Event-specific version of the Platform for the duration of the Event by registering as an attendee. In such case, you may not be required to pay any applicable standard Platform subscription fees (e.g., for Managers), but the remainder of these Terms will still apply to your use of the Platform. If you register solely for purposes of a given Event, your access to the Platform may not extend beyond the Event if you do not register a full account.
If you attend an Event, whether virtually or in-person, you acknowledge that: (i) iConnections or the Event host or sponsor and their respective designees may take photographs, videos, and other recordings at the Event (“Event Recordings”); (i) such Event Recordings may include or feature you and your likeness and voice; and (iii) you waive and release any rights of publicity or privacy in such Event Recordings, and iConnections and the Event host or Sponsor may use, publish, and display such Event Recordings for their marketing and other commercial purposes, without any approval from (or compensation to) you.
Additionally, if you attend an Event, whether virtually or in-person, you acknowledge and agree that iConnections or the Event host or sponsor and its and their respective designees may publicize the fact that you and/or your company are or were attendees of the Event, including, without limitation, listing your name and/or your company name in marketing and promotional materials and other collateral.
Event passes purchased by Managers in connection with participation in an iConnections Event may only be used by individuals directly affiliated with the Manager’s company. Individuals using passes in violation of this policy are subject to removal from the Event.
BUNDLERS AND SPONSORS
Managers may access the Platform directly on their own account, or through a third-party Bundler or Sponsor that has an existing relationship with iConnections. If you are accessing the Platform as a Manager via a Bundler or Sponsor arrangement, then depending on the written agreement between iConnections and the applicable Bundler or Sponsor, the Bundler or Sponsor may or may not be responsible for paying some or all of your subscription fees. Except for any such changes in payment obligations, the remainder of these Terms will still apply to your use of the Platform. You acknowledge that, by accessing the Platform as a Manager in connection with a Bundler or Sponsor arrangement, the applicable Bundler or Sponsor will have access to certain of your information through the Platform, and hereby consent to us granting such access to such Bundler or Sponsor.
If you are accessing the Platform as a Bundler or Sponsor yourself, your use of the Platform is also subject to these Terms, except as expressly modified by the separate agreement you have in place with iConnections (for example, regarding your payment of applicable fees thereunder in lieu of the standard subscription fees hereunder).
Unless otherwise terminated in accordance with these Terms, your subscription begins on the date you first pay subscription fees as described below (for Managers) or otherwise register your account (for other Users), and continues for a period of one year plus any renewals as described herein (the “Term”). Your subscription will automatically renew for consecutive one-year periods (at iConnections’ then-current pricing as it relates to Managers) unless you provide at least 60 days’ prior written notice of your desire to opt-out. iConnections will invoice you for the renewal fees on or before your renewal date. iConnections will invoice Managers for renewal fees on or before the renewal date.
If you are a Manager, unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing (e.g., in a mutually-executed order form or other transaction document): (i) you will pay iConnections its then-current subscription fee for access to the Platform, as published on the Platform; and (ii) such subscription fee will be due and payable annually in advance.
The Platform may from time to time give you the option to purchase additional features or access (e.g., in connection with a particular Event) at the listed rates. By providing us a payment card or other payment method information, you authorize us to charge you for the designated amounts on a one-time or recurring basis, as selected by you. You acknowledge and agree that we may use one or more third-party payment processors to facilitate payments made through the Platform, and that such payment processors will receive sufficient information regarding you and your payment method as needed to process such payments.
Unless otherwise expressly set forth herein, all payments are non-refundable.
If you are a Manager, you represent, warrant, acknowledge and agree that:
If you are an Investor, you represent, warrant, acknowledge and agree that:
OTHER USER RESPONSIBILITIES
As a Sponsor, Bundler, Service Provider, or other User (excluding Investors and Managers), you agree and acknowledge the following:

All Content other than Your Content (as defined below) is owned by us or our third-party licensors and vendors and is protected by applicable copyright, trademark, and/or other intellectual property laws. Nothing contained on the Platform or in connection with an Event should be construed as granting any license or right to use any of the Content without our written permission other than as set forth herein. Subject to your continued compliance with these Terms, we hereby grant you a personal, non-exclusive, revocable, non-transferable and non-sublicensable license to access and use the Platform and Content for your personal use. Any use of the trademarks included in the Content will inure to our (or the applicable licensor’s) benefit.
The version of the Platform you access as part of a specific Event, or in connection with a Bundler or Sponsor arrangement, may be white-labeled or co-branded between iConnections and the applicable Event organizer, Bundler, or Sponsor. For avoidance of doubt, the applicable Event organizer, Bundler, or Sponsor owns its trademarks, but this does not affect or diminish our ownership of the Platform itself or our own trademarks.
If you believe that any Content infringes your copyrights or that your intellectual property rights have been otherwise harmed, immediately notify our designated copyright agent by firstname.lastname@example.org. Your notice must comply with the requirements of the DMCA by including the following: (i) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (ii) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site; (iii) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material; (iv) information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted; (v) a statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (vi) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
If you repeatedly infringe third party copyrights (e.g., by submitting Content without permission), whether proven or alleged, it is our policy to terminate your account on the Platform.
YOUR CONTENT; FEEDBACK
“Your Content” means any Content submitted to the Platform by you. We have the right, but no obligation, to monitor or screen Your Content and remove any of Your Content in our discretion, including if we deem it objectionable or inappropriate in any way. As between iConnections and you, you own Your Content. By submitting any of Your Content, you: (i) represent and warrant that you have all right, title, and interest to do so; (ii) acknowledge that Your Content will not be treated as confidential, and may be publicly visible via the Platform; (iii) grant us and our affiliates a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, fully paid, royalty-free, and fully transferable and sublicensable license to use, reproduce, display, perform, modify, transmit, distribute and create derivative works of Your Content in any media and for any purpose whatsoever (including to operate, maintain, improve, and promote the Platform) without attribution or compensation to you or any other third party; and (iv) irrevocably waive any claims of moral rights, privacy, publicity, or similar rights in any of Your Content. If you provide feedback, suggestions, improvements, or requests for additional functionality related to the Platform (collectively, “Feedback”), you grant us an unrestricted, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use, reproduce, display, perform, modify, transmit, distribute and create derivative works of such Feedback in any way we deem reasonable, without any attribution or accounting to you. This paragraph will survive any termination or expiration of these Terms or of your account on the Platform.
COMMUNITY STANDARDS; RESTRICTIONS

You agree to act in a professional, business-like, respectful, ethical, and lawful manner when using the Platform and when attending (whether in person or virtually) one of our Events, including complying with the iConnections Code of Conduct. Without limiting the foregoing, you represent, warrant, and agree that you will not: (i) remove any trademark or copyright notices contained in the Platform or Content; (ii) reproduce, modify, publish, distribute, transmit, disseminate, transfer, license, sell, lease, create derivative works based upon, or in any way commercially exploit the Platform or Content; (iii) use manual or automated means to trawl, mine, scrape, frame, or mirror the Platform or Content; (iv) disassemble, decompile or reverse engineer the Platform or Content; (v) attempt to hack, defeat, or overcome any encryption technology or security measures regarding the Platform or our other systems or those of any third party, or gain any unauthorized access to any systems or accounts; (vi) interfere with or disrupt the operation of the Platform or any other systems or otherwise interrupt or interfere with any other user’s use or enjoyment of the Platform; (vii) promote illegal activity or violate any applicable local, state, national or international law; (viii) post or transmit any Content that is discriminatory, unlawful, defamatory, abusive, harassing, threatening, indecent, pornographic, obscene, fraudulent or otherwise inappropriate or infringes any intellectual property or privacy or other rights of any person; (ix) send unsolicited advertisements through the Platform; (x) impersonate any person or misrepresent your identity or affiliation; (xi) use the Platform in a way that is not for its intended purposes or that will adversely affect us or reflect negatively on us, any of our goodwill, name or reputation; (xii) provide any false or misleading information or any information that you do not have the right to provide; or (xiii) otherwise violate any of our published rules, policies, or guidelines.
The Platform may contain links to websites owned or operated by, and marketing materials and Content provided by or promoting, third party Managers, Bundlers, Sponsors, Service Providers, or other Users, and their products and services (for which we may be compensated on a non-transaction basis by the applicable third party and therefore we have an incentive to list such Content over other Content for which we do not receive any compensation).

We have the right, but not the obligation, to review any Content provided by third parties (including other users of the Platform). We do not endorse such third-party Content, and any views expressed therein are the views of the applicable author and do not necessarily align with our views. We are not responsible for the accuracy or reliability of any Content provided by third parties and will not be liable for any causes of action (including slander, libel, or invasion of privacy) relating to such third-party Content. We have no control over, and are not responsible for, your interactions (online or in person) with any third parties, including other users of the Platform even if introduced via the Platform. You are solely responsible for your interactions with any third parties. If you have any disputes with other users of the Platform, we may (at our discretion) attempt to facilitate a resolution, but are under no obligation to do so.
Additionally, the Platform may enable the use of certain third-party features, such as video conferencing solutions. Any use of third-party features will be subject to the applicable third party’s terms and conditions.
