Durise.com and your Durise Account

About Durise
Durise manages the Website as a crowd-funding platform, allowing investors to make commitments to invest in real estate investments. Real estate investment properties are listed on the Website and offered to prospective investors. The Website facilitates investment in such real estate investments through a LLC in the United States, and helps investors track their investment transaction history. Payments for the real estate investments are deposited to a third party escrow account managed independently. 

About Your Durise Account
When you register on the Website, you create a Durise account that allows you to interact with the Website and use the Services (an “Account”). By creating this Account, you represent that you are either: (i) an individual and wish to use the Services on your own behalf; or (ii) an individual authorised to use the Services on behalf of a corporation or other entity.

Eligibility

The Service is available only to individuals who are at least 18 years old (and at least the legal age in your jurisdiction). You represent and warrant that if you are an individual, you are at least 18 years old and of legal age in your jurisdiction to form a binding contract, and that all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful. Durise may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer the Service to any person or entity. The Service is not available to any Users suspended or removed from the Site or Service by Durise. By using the Service, you represent that you have not been previously suspended or removed from the Site or Service.

Some of our services, and certain web pages of the Site, are available only to those Users who have been authorized by us to access those services and web pages. Only Users of the Service who are Accredited Investors as defined in Regulation D Rule 501 adopted pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933 (“Accredited Investors”) with a valid User ID and password are authorized to access such services and web pages. In general, to qualify as an Accredited Investor, individuals must have a net worth of more than $1 million (excluding their primary residence), or gross income for each of the last two years of at least $200,000 ($300,000 jointly with their spouse) with the expectation of a similarly qualifying income during the current year. The authorization for such Accredited Investors may require completion of an Accredited Investor questionnaire and satisfactory background information screening and/or identification verification. By registering for, accessing, browsing, and/or otherwise using the services and/or web pages for which access is restricted to Accredited Investors, you represent and agree that you are an Accredited Investor. Should you cease to be an Accredited Investor at any time, you agree to immediately notify Durise and to refrain from accessing such restricted portions of the Site and/or Service. Further, because access to the restricted portions of the Site is limited by applicable law to Accredited Investors, you agree that you will not allow anyone to access such restricted portions of the Site, or share or disclose any information obtained through restricted portions of the Site with anyone, regardless of whether you believe such person or entity to also be an Accredited Investor.

As part of Durise’ authorization process, each user shall be required to provide, among other things, a valid email address. In providing your email address and agreeing to these Terms of Service, each authorized user consents to receiving email notifications from Durise concerning offerings. In some cases, users of the restricted portions of the Site may be required to confirm their status as an Accredited Investor. In order for Durise to confirm that your representation regarding your status as an Accredited Investor is accurate when made and continues to be accurate from time to time, you agree to provide Durise with all information and documentation reasonably required by Durise to verify your status as an Accredited Investor, including (without limitation) delivering a completed Accredited Investor questionnaire, tax returns, brokerage statements, bank statements, resumes and other private financial information. Should you fail to provide any requested information and documentation that confirms your status as an Accredited Investor, Durise may immediately suspend, block or otherwise discontinue your access and use of the Site or Service. Durise may change its eligibility criteria at any time, for any reason, and without prior notice.

You are responsible for all claims, fees, fines, penalties and other liability incurred by Durise or any third party caused by or arising out of your breach of these Website Terms of Use or your use of the Services. You agree to reimburse Durise or any third party for any and all such liabilities.

If you engage in any restricted activities, we may take various actions to protect Durise from claims, fees, fines, penalties and any other liability. The actions we may take include but are not limited to the following:

  • We may close, suspend, or place restrictions on your Durise Account.

  • We may remove user comments that do not comply with these Website Terms of Use.
  • We may refuse to provide the Services to you in the future.

Whether we decide to take any of the above steps, remove content, or refuse to provide Services, we do not monitor, and you agree we will not be subject to liability for monitoring, the Website.

Account Suspension or Restriction
Durise, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to terminate these Website Terms of Use or access to the Website or the Services. We also reserve the right to suspend or place restrictions on your Account for any reason and at any time upon notice to you. Account restrictions may include a limitation on the value of transactions we will accept from your Account. If your Account is suspended, you will be unable to list investment properties or make commitments and we will not issue any payments to you. If we suspend or place restrictions on your Account, we will provide you with notice and opportunity to request reconsideration, if appropriate.

No warranty

General
Durise and our agents, employees, affiliates and suppliers provide the Services "as is" and without any warranty or condition, express, implied or statutory. Durise and our agents, employees, affiliates and suppliers specifically disclaim any implied warranties of title, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement. Durise does not guarantee continuous, uninterrupted or secure access to our Services, and operation of our Website may be interfered with by numerous factors outside of our control. In jurisdictions that do not allow the disclaimer of implied warranties, the disclaimers provided in this Section may not apply to you. This Section gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other legal rights that vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

Third Party Data
To the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, Durise makes no representation or warranty, express or implied, with respect to any third party data provided to Durise or its transmission, timeliness, accuracy or completeness, including but not limited to implied warranties or warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. Durise will not be liable in any way to you or to any other person for any inaccuracy, error or delay in or omission of any third party data or the transmission or delivery of any such third party data and any loss or damage arising from (i) any such inaccuracy, error, delay or omission, (ii) third-party non-performance, or (iii) interruption in any such third party data due either to any negligent act or omission by Durise or "force majeure" or any other cause beyond reasonable control of the Durise.

Processing of Payments
Durise will make reasonable efforts to ensure that requests for electronic debits and credits involving bank accounts are processed in a timely manner, but Durise makes no representations or warranties regarding the amount of time needed to complete processing because our Services are dependent upon many factors outside of our control, such as delays in the banking system.

Indemnification

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold Durise and its officers, directors, agents and employees harmless from any claim or demand (including attorneys' fees) made or incurred by any third party due to or arising out of your breach of these Website Terms of Use and/or your use of the Services.

Governing law and disputes

This Agreement (and any further rules, policies, or guidelines incorporated by reference) shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the state of Delaware as they apply to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within Delaware between Delaware residents, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law, and without application of the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act or the United Nations Convention of Controls for International Sale of Goods. By your agreement to the Terms and your use of the Durise’ Service, you agree to submit to personal jurisdiction in Delaware for all purposes, and you agree to waive, to the maximum extent permitted by law, any right to a trial by jury for any matter.

Unless otherwise agreed in writing by you and Durise, any dispute arising out of or relating to the Terms, or any breach thereof, shall be finally resolved by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rules, or such arbitration body as required by law, rule or regulation, and final judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language before a single arbitrator in Delaware. Such arbitration must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises. Judgment on any award entered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either Durise or you may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for injunctive relief without breach of this arbitration provision.

Any cause of action arising out of or related to the Service, and all products and services offered via the Durise Site or Service must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues. Otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred. You acknowledge and agree that you may bring claims against Durise only in an individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding.
