Terms and Conditions
This website is operated by InvestaMatch Limited (referred to on this website as “the Company”, “we”, “us” or “our”). Your use of this website is governed by these Terms and Conditions. By registering to become a member or accessing and browsing this website you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. We make this website available to you in order to provide information about your services and enable you to register online and to use our services.
InvestaMatch Limited makes no warranty or representation that any “match” notified by it will be suitable or any other warranties or representations. Investamatch is not a financial product market and therefore does not hold a financial product market license.
This website provides an online opportunity matching platform which notifies registered users looking to fund growth and succession, of possible “matches” with platform users, with those users to independently investigate the match further outside of the online platform offered by the Company. We do not take part in any transactions other than by providing our website as a venue for registered members to communicate with one another. If a possible match is notified by us to a member, it is the member’s sole responsibility to determine whether the business opportunity is appropriate or to initiate contact with the member listing the opportunity. We do not act as an agent for either party and do not participate in any sale or transaction between you and another registered member. If a member chooses to make contact with a “matched” business opportunity, it does so in reliance on its own judgement and not in reliance on any representation by the Company. It is the responsibility of each member to obtain their own independent professional advice on the business opportunity and any possible match notified by us under this website.
Transactions and all other contact between you and other registered members (through this website or otherwise) are conducted entirely at your own risk. You agree that we take no responsibility or liability for any misconduct of any registered members including, without limitation, members that have registered under false pretences or who attempt to defraud you. We give no warranties, representations or undertakings in relation to the website, opportunities listed on the website or any registered member, including:
- that the website or the services provided will be uninterrupted, timely, secure or error-free or that any information provided on the website is error-free or reliable;
- about ownership of any item or legal ability for registered members to offer any listed business opportunity or registered members to purchase any business opportunities;
- as to the content, safety, description, worthiness, quality or legality of the business opportunities that are listed on the website;
- as to the accuracy or truth of information provided about business opportunities;
- that any “matched” business opportunity, members will meet your requirements or expectations or are otherwise suitable; or
- about the ability of members to complete a transaction in relation to any listed business opportunity.
