The Site, owned and operated by Hedge Fund Investor Network LLC ("HFIN", “we” or “us”), provides (i) an interactive community for hedge fund investors to connect and communicate, (ii) a platform for hedge fund investors to discuss, debate, vet, read, access, share, post, upload, analyze, research and obtain views, perspectives, knowledge, research and other information about hedge funds and the hedge fund industry and (iii) other related functions, features and services (collectively, the “Service”). The Site and the Services are only intended for and available to hedge fund investors who become members ("Members").

Any party that is not a Hedge Fund Investor or an approved Member is prohibited from entering or otherwise accessing the Site or viewing Member-only "private" information. Without limiting anything contained in this Agreement, any violation of the foregoing provision is considered extremely damaging to HFIN and its online Member community, making said party liable for any damages sustained by HFIN in any matter to the fullest extent of the law in any applicable jurisdiction.
HFIN will use commercially reasonable efforts to restrict access only to Hedge Fund Investors, but cannot represent or guarantee that it will be 100% successful. Members hereby waive any actions it may have against HFIN and agree to indemnify and hold harmless HFIN from any and all damages resulting from any wrongful access to the Site by a non-Hedge Fund Investor that it authorizes. Should HFIN learn about any illegal or wrongful access, HFIN will take reasonably prompt corrective action.

You further understand that none of the Members are advising you personally concerning the nature, potential, value or suitability of any particular hedge fund, security, portfolio of securities, transaction, investment strategy or other matter. To the extent any of the content published on the Site may be deemed to be investment advice or recommendations in connection with a particular hedge fund or security, such information is impersonal and not tailored to the investment needs of any specific person. HFIN is not registered with the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission as an investment adviser, but may in the future so register.

You alone are solely responsible for determining whether any investment, hedge fund, security, strategy or any other product or service, is appropriate or suitable for you or your investment portfolio based on your or your portfolio’s investment objectives, risk tolerance, liquidity needs and other considerations. You should consult an attorney or tax professional regarding your specific legal or tax situation. For any information or Member Content that relates to a hedge fund of personal interest, you should contact such hedge fund directly to independently verify any information obtained from the Site before taking any investment action or making any investment decisions. HFIN will not make any hedge fund introductions or provide any contact information.
You understand that an investment in any hedge fund or security is speculative and involves a high degree of risk. You could lose all or a substantial amount of your investment. Each fund is unique and there are unique risks involved when investing in a particular hedge fund. You should carefully read a fund's offering materials and related information for specific risk and other important information regarding an investment in that fund before investing. This Site, or its content, does not list, and does not purport to list, the risk factors associated with an investment in any of the hedge funds listed on this Site.
U.S. federal law prohibits advertising and marketing of privately placed securities, including interests in private, unregistered funds such as hedge funds. Regulators may monitor this Site and similar websites for such activity. Advertising or marketing on this Site is expressly prohibited and HFIN disclaims any liability or obligation for any such activity.
The posting of any private investment fund information on the Site by HFIN or by Members does not constitute an offer to purchase, sell or exchange shares of such funds and no securities transactions and marketing activities shall take place on the Site.
NEITHER HFIN NOR ANY OF ITS SUBSIDIARIES OR AFFILIATES AND EACH OF SUCH PARTIES' OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, SHAREHOLDERS, MEMBERS, EMPLOYEES, AFFILIATES AND SUPPLIERS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “HFIN PARTIES”) RECOMMENDS OR SOLICITS ANY INVESTMENT BY USERS OF THE SITE.
