THE SITE, INCLUDING ALL MATERIALS, INFORMATION, DATA, FEATURES, AND ALL CONTENT ON THE SITE, IS OFFERED AND MADE AVAILABLE ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE CONTENT OR OPERATION OF THE SITE AND WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE SITE IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.
The information contained on the Site is confidential and proprietary and intended only for use by the recipient. The information contained on the Site is not complete, and does not contain certain material information about real estate investments, including important disclosures and risk factors associated with an investment in these types of vehicles, and is subject to change without notice. The Site is not intended to be, nor should it be construed or used as, an offer to sell, or a solicitation of any offer to buy shares or limited partnership interests in any investment managed by us. If any offer is made, it shall be pursuant to offering documents prepared by or on behalf of us which contain detailed information concerning the investment terms and the risks, fees and expenses associated with an investment in that fund.
Investing in any of our investments involves significant risks, including loss of the entire investment. Our investments will be illiquid, as there is no secondary market for interests in any of our investment and none are expected to develop. There will be restrictions on transferring interests in our investment; investments may be leveraged and the investment performance may be volatile. Before deciding to invest in any of our investments, prospective investors should read the associated offering documents and pay particular attention to the risk factors. Investors should have the financial ability and willingness to accept the risk characteristics of any of our investments.
In considering any performance-related information contained on the Site, investors should bear in mind that past or targeted performance is not indicative of future results, and there can be no assurance that any of our investments will achieve comparable results or that target returns will be met.
Except where otherwise indicated on the Site, the information provided on the Site is based on matters as they exist as of the date of preparation and not as of any future date, and will not be updated or otherwise revised to reflect information that subsequently becomes available, or circumstances existing or changes occurring after the date hereof.
The Site may be temporarily unavailable from time to time for maintenance or other reasons. We do not assume any responsibility for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operation or transmission, communications line failure, theft or destruction, unauthorized access to, or alteration of, your communications. We are not responsible for any problems or technical malfunction of any telephone network or lines, computer online systems, servers, providers, computer equipment, software, failure of email or players on account of technical problems or traffic congestion on the Internet or on the Site, or any combination thereof, including injury or damage to you or to any other person’s computer related to or resulting from your access to or use of the Site.
You agree that we, in our sole discretion, may suspend or terminate your use of the Site, and remove or discard any content on the Site, for any reason, including for lack of use, or if we believe that you have violated these Terms. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive, or illegal activity may be referred to the appropriate law enforcement authorities. You acknowledge and agree that we may terminate your access to the Site without prior notice to you. You agree that we will not be liable to you or to any third party for our termination of your access to the Site.
A. Mandatory Arbitration.YOU AND WE AGREE TO SUBMIT ANY AND ALL DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OF THE SITE (each, a “Dispute”) to binding arbitration pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act (Title 9 of the United States Code), which shall govern the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration agreement (“Arbitration Agreement”). You and we waive the right to a trial by jury and any right to have a Dispute heard in court.
In arbitration, Disputes are resolved by a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, arbitration is more limited than in court, and the arbitrator’s decision is subject to limited review by courts. The arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court, including monetary damages, injunctive relief, and declaratory relief. Judgment on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. A single arbitrator with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA“) will conduct the arbitration, and the award may not exceed the relief allowed by applicable law. The arbitration will be conducted in the county of your residence or another mutually agreed location. The AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules will apply. If AAA will not apply those rules, then AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. The AAA’s rules and a form that can be used to initiate arbitration proceedings are available at http://www.adr.org. You and we agree that if for any reason AAA will not conduct or becomes unavailable to conduct the arbitration, then a court may appoint a substitute arbitrator, and further agree that the choice of AAA as a forum is not integral to the Arbitration Agreement.
The arbitrator will decide all issues relating to the enforceability, interpretation, scope, and application of this Arbitration Agreement (including “gateway” issues of arbitrability, whether the Arbitration Agreement is unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration), and these Terms, except that a court will resolve any question regarding the validity or enforceability of the class action waiver set forth in Section B of this Arbitration Agreement. The term “Dispute” and the requirement to arbitrate will be broadly interpreted.
B. Arbitration Class Action Waiver.You and we agree that the arbitration will be conducted solely on an individual basis and not on a class, representative, consolidated, or private attorney general basis. A Dispute may not be consolidated with a claim brought or discovery by any person or entity that is not a party to the arbitration proceeding. The arbitrator may not award relief to any person or entity other than a party to the arbitration proceeding and may only award such relief as is necessary to provide relief to a party to the arbitration proceeding. If a court deems any portion of this Section B invalid or unenforceable, then Sections A and C of this Arbitration Agreement will be null and void.
C. Fees and Costs in Arbitration. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. We will reimburse you for those fees up to $7,500, unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, we will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.
D. Non-Arbitration Class Action and Jury Waiver.You and we agree that if for any reason a Dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration: (1) you and we waive any right to a jury trial; (2) the Dispute will proceed solely on an individual, non-class, non-representative basis; and (3) neither you nor we may be a class representative or class member or otherwise participate in any class, representative, consolidated, or private attorney general proceeding.
E. NOTWITHSTANDING anything to the contrary in this Section, YOU MAY CHOOSE TO PURSUE YOUR CLAIM IN COURT AND NOT BY ARBITRATION IF YOU OPT OUT OF THIS ARBITRATION Agreement WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE EARLIER OF: (1) THE DATE YOU Accept these Terms, OR (2) THE DATE YOU FIRST SIGNED AN AGREEMENT WITH US THAT CONTAINED AN ARBITRATION PROVISION. The opt-out notice must be postmarked no later than the applicable deadline and mailed to: Cove Property Group, 501 Madison Avenue, Floor 5, New York, NY 10022. The opt-out notice must state that you do not agree to this Arbitration Agreement and must include your name, address, phone number and email address. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, and failure to comply strictly with this procedure and the applicable deadline automatically will render the opt-out notice null and void. If you opt out of the arbitration provision, all other parts of this Arbitration Agreement will continue to apply.
The following Sections shall survive termination of these Terms: Sections 1, 3 – 7, 9 – 15, and any other provision that by its terms survives termination of these Terms.
You may not assign or transfer the Terms or your rights hereunder, in whole or in part, for any reason without our prior written consent. We may assign the Terms or any of our rights or obligations hereunder at any time without your consent. The failure to require performance of any provision shall not affect our right to require performance at any time thereafter, nor shall a waiver of any breach or default of the Terms constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself. Use of paragraph headers in the Terms is for convenience only and shall not have any impact on the interpretation of particular provisions. In the event that any part of the Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the unenforceable part shall be given effect to the greatest extent possible and the remaining parts will remain in full force and effect.
