Terms of Use

Please read the following terms and conditions (“Terms”). They govern your use of this website and its associated services, including email newsletters, associated content distribution platforms, and public SV Angel online social media accounts (collectively, the “Services”). By using the Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms. We may update these Terms from time to time and any modifications will be effective immediately upon posting unless we indicate otherwise. If you use the Services after any changes to the Terms have been posted, that means you agree to all of the changes. We suggest that you review these Terms periodically for changes.

Except as otherwise noted on the Services, all content and material on the Services — including information, photos, blog posts, videos, graphics/charts, icons, code, design, and overall appearance — are the property of SV Angel Management, LLC (“SV Angel or “SVA”) and should not be used, modified, or reproduced without our prior written consent. All trademarks, trade names, and logos displayed on the Services are the property of SVA, its affiliates, or their respective third-party owners, and the Services grants no license to them.

The Services are intended solely to provide general information about SV Angel, its services to entrepreneurs, and its people. Nothing in the Services is directed at nor should be relied upon by any investors or prospective investors in any vehicle managed by SV Angel. SV Angel does not intend to solicit or make its investment advisory services available to the general public.

Under no circumstances should any information provided in the Services be considered as an offer soliciting the purchase or sale of any security or interest in any pooled investment vehicle sponsored, discussed, or mentioned by SV Angel nor should it be construed as an offer to provide investment advisory services. Such offers or solicitations will be made separately and only by means of the confidential offering documents of the specific pooled investment vehicles which should be read in their entirety, and only to those who, among other requirements, meet certain qualifications under federal securities laws. Such investors, defined as accredited investors and qualified purchasers, are generally deemed capable of evaluating the merits and risks of prospective investments and financial matters. There can be no assurances that SV Angel’s investment objectives will be achieved or investment strategies will be successful. Any investment in a vehicle managed by SV Angel involves a high degree of risk including the risk that the entire amount invested is lost.

Any investments or portfolio companies described or referred to in the Services are not representative of all investments in vehicles managed by SV Angel and there can be no assurance that the investments described are, or will be, profitable or that other investments made in the future will have similar character or results.

Any opinions expressed in the Services reflect SV Angel’s views or those of individual posters, and are subject to change. Certain information contained in the Services has been obtained from third-party sources, including from portfolio companies of funds managed by SV Angel. While taken from sources believed to be reliable, SV Angel has not independently verified such information and makes no representations about the enduring accuracy of the information or its appropriateness for a given situation. The discussions and opinions expressed herein are not intended to provide investment, accounting, tax, or legal advice. Nothing in the Services is a recommendation that you purchase, sell or hold any security or other investment, or that you pursue any investment style or strategy. The content of this website is presented on an “as is” basis with no warranties, express or implied, of any kind with respect to the Services. Charts provided herein are for informational purposes only and should not be relied upon when making any investment decision.

Certain statements that individual personnel make may constitute “forward-looking statements” under the Privacy Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. To the extent any information herein constitutes forward-looking statements (which can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expect,” “anticipation,” “upside,” “potential,” “project,” “estimate,” “intend,” “forecast,” “target” or “believe” or comparable terminology), please note that, due to various risks and uncertainties, actual events, results, or performance may differ materially from those reflected or contemplated in such statements. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees and involve risks, uncertainties, and assumptions. SV Angel expressly disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statement in the event it later turns out to be inaccurate — whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. Any projections, estimates, forecasts, targets, prospects and/or opinions expressed in these materials are subject to change without notice and may differ or be contrary to opinions expressed by others.

Past results of SV Angel’s pooled investment vehicles, investments, or investment strategies are not necessarily indicative of future results.

We retain Personal Data about you for as long as we have a business purpose to do so, taking into account the statute of limitations period and record retention requirements under applicable law.. In some cases, we retain Personal Data for longer, if doing so is necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes or collect fees owed, or is otherwise permitted or required by applicable law, rule or regulation.
