Only Users with a valid username and password are authorized to access Service and Site. User shall not: (i) select a username already used by another User; (ii) use a username to which another person has rights without such person's authorization; or (iii) use a username or password that UInvest, in its sole discretion, deems offensive or inappropriate. As part of UInvest’s authorization process, each User shall be required to provide, among other things, a valid email address. In providing your email address and agreeing to this Agreement, each authorized User consents to receiving email notifications from UInvest concerning offerings. In consideration of your use of the Site, you agree to (a) provide accurate, current and complete information about you as may be prompted by any registration forms on the Site; (b) maintain the security of your password and identification; (c) maintain and promptly update the registration data, and any other information that you provide to UInvest, to keep it accurate, current and complete; and (d) accept all risks of unauthorized access to the registration data and any other information you provide to UInvest. Unauthorized use of the Site and our Service, including, but not limited to the misuse or sharing of passwords or misuse of any other information, is strictly prohibited. You may not use the Site in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden or impair the Site or Service or interfere with any other party's use and enjoyment of the Site or Service. You agree that you will not engage in any activities related to the Site that are contrary to respective laws or regulations. You further agree that you are responsible for any unauthorized use of your account that is made before you have notified UInvest and we have had a reasonable opportunity to act on that notice. UInvest reserves the right at its discretion to restrict, suspend or terminate your access to the Service, at any time, with or without prior notice, and even without receiving such notice from you, if we suspect that it is being used in an unauthorized, fraudulent, or illegal manner. UInvest further reserves the right, at our sole discretion, to take appropriate legal action against anyone who violates respective laws or regulations, including reporting suspected violations to and cooperating fully with law enforcement authorities. You shall be solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and fully responsible for all activities that occur by use of your account. Notwithstanding the above, you are responsible for monitoring your account and should promptly notify UInvest by submitting to us a report of any known unauthorized or suspicious activity in your account, or breach of security, including loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of your password or financial information. You may terminate your account at any time by submitting a request. Before termination you are required to sell all assets you have in UInvest and withdraw all your funds from your UInvest online account. Your request will be considered within 48 business hours, and only after you accomplish the above required provisions will your account be terminated.
In order to use UInvest’s payment Services and for the purposes of carrying out, but not limited to, electronic transfers, Investments, sell and purchase of Shares, User must first open Electronic Account, which operates with the Uinvest units, backed by United States of America Dollars (hereinafter referred to as the “Electronic Account”). You agree to maintain only one Electronic Account with the Service at any time and certify that you currently have no other account(s) with the Service. User is responsible for all transfers from Electronic Account, even if the instructions provided by User are incorrect. Every recipient of a payment or transfer must have a valid Electronic Account. Once funds are credited to the recipient’s Electronic Account, the transfer becomes irreversible.
The term “Electronic money” as used in this Agreement or the Site does not coincide with the meaning of the term “Electronic money” as construed in the Directive 2009/110/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 September 2009 on the taking up, pursuit and prudential supervision of the business of electronic money institutions amending Directives 2005/60/EC and 2006/48/EC and repealing Directive 2000/46/EC (hereinafter – Directive).
“Electronic money” means electronically stored monetary value as represented by a claim on the issuer which is issued on receipt of funds for the purpose of making payment transactions and which is accepted by a natural or legal person other than the electronic money issuer (Article 2(2) of the Directive). Meanwhile, the Directive does not apply to monetary value stored on specific pre-paid instruments, designed to address precise needs that can be used only in a limited way, because they allow the electronic money holder to purchase goods or services only in the premises of the electronic money issuer or because they can be used only to acquire a limited range of goods or services. Since Uinvest money (units) can only be used within the Uinvest crowdfunding platform and exclusively for the purpose of buying and selling shares and obligations, they are not electronic money within the meaning of the Directive.
Fees and Payments
You shall pay all fees and charges incurred, and implement all your transactions through your Electronic Account at the rates in effect for the billing period in which such fees and charges are incurred, including but not limited to charges for any products or services offered for sale through the Service by UInvest or by any other vendor or service provider. All fees and charges shall be billed to you, and you shall be solely responsible for their payment. You have the right to withdraw funds from your Electronic Account at any time, however, you may be required to confirm your identity beforehand. There is no minimum withdrawal amount, but the funds on your Electronic Account must be sufficient to cover any applicable withdrawal fee. You may choose the method of withdrawal when submitting your withdrawal request.
Enrollment in the Affiliate Program
All new Users have the right to earn a commission for referring customers to UInvest Site (“Affiliate Activity”). The commission for Affiliate Activity is a flat 4%, plus a bonus that varies and depends on activity of referred customers. At our sole discretion we reserve the right to change the formula for calculating the bonus at any time, without prior notice. Thus, the full commission is recalculated on a daily basis and is shown inside User’s account. UInvest has the right to disable the bonus part of the commission for an affiliate partner, and even terminate an affiliate account, if UInvest determines (at its sole discretion) that affiliate’s website is unsuitable for the affiliate program for any reason, including, but not limited to, inclusion of content that is considered by UInvest to be unlawful, harmful, undesirable, or otherwise does not meet this Agreement. If UInvest rejects or terminate your application for any reason, you may not reapply to the UInvest Affiliate Program utilizing the same domain name/URL if that domain name/URL has already been rejected nor may you reapply using a different domain/URL name then add your link to the previously rejected domain name/URL. UInvest, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to notify or to not notify any prospective affiliate of their rejection or removal from the UInvest Affiliate Program at any time.
