Welcome to the crowd-investing technology platform of Prodigy Network, LLC (“Prodigy Network”, the “Company”, “we”, “our” or “us”). Our service; including our investment service and the content, services, and/or products provided through our Site (as defined below)(collectively, the “Service”) are maintained by us. By accessing or using our crowd-investing technology platform at www.prodigynetwork.com, including any subdomain thereof (the “Site”), you (the “User” or “you”) signify that you have read, understand and agree to be bound by these terms and conditions of service (“Terms of Service” or “Agreement”), regardless of whether you are a registered member of the Service.
This Site is intended solely for Users who are eighteen (18) years of age or older, and any registration by, use of or access to the Site by anyone under 18 is unauthorized, unlicensed and in violation of these Terms of Service. By using the Service or the Site, you represent and warrant that you are 18 or older and that you agree to and abide by all of the terms and conditions of these Terms of Service. If you violate any of these Terms of Service, the Company may terminate your membership, delete your profile and any content or information that you have posted on the Site and/or prohibit you from using or accessing the Service or the Site (or any portion, aspect or feature of the Service or the Site), at any time in its sole discretion, with or without notice, including without limitation if it believes that you are under 18. You agree that the Company will not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your membership.
The portion of our Service (and certain pages of the Site) that relate to the viewing of actual investment opportunities or to making investments in the securities offered therein are available only to certain qualified, registered and authorized Users. Such portions of our Service and the Site may thus not be available in all jurisdictions or to all Users.
For offers and sales that occur within the United States, only “accredited investors” as defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the ”Securities Act”), with a valid User ID and password, are authorized to access such services and web pages (such persons being (“Accredited Investors”)). 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. In some cases, you may be required to provide supporting documents to issuers that provide verification that you are an Accredited Investor. Such verification may require completion of an Accredited Investor questionnaire, submission of an Internal Revenue Service form (e.g., a W-2), completion of a satisfactory background information screening, and/or other confirmations or documentation. Your failure to provide any information and documentation requested to confirm your status as an Accredited Investor will be cause for us to immediately discontinue your use of the Service by preventing your access to the Site and the Service.
For offers and sales that occur outside of the United States, persons are only allowed access to such investment opportunities if such person represents that his or her access does not violate the laws of his or her country of residence. Our Service (and certain pages of the Site) that relate to the viewing of actual investment opportunities or to making investments in the securities offered therein may not be used by any person or entity in any jurisdiction where the provision or use thereof would be contrary to applicable laws, rules or regulations of any governmental authority or where we are not authorized to provide such information or services. Your use of the Service or the Site constitutes your affirmative acknowledgment that you are not in violation of the laws of your country of residence and a waiver of the protection of any local non-U.S. laws.
The securities offered on the Site have not been registered under the Securities Act in reliance on the exemptive provisions of Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and Rule 506, and/or Regulation S, promulgated thereunder. Securities sold through private placements are restricted and not publicly traded, and are therefore illiquid. Neither the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission nor any state securities commission or other regulatory authority has approved, passed upon or endorsed the merits of any offering on this Site. We are not a registered broker-dealer, funding portal, or investment advisor and we do not conduct any activity that would require such registration. We and our employees principally operate under the broker-dealer registration exemptions in Rule 3a4-1 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) and Section 4(b) of the Securities Act.
Investment overviews on the Site contain summaries of the purpose and principal business terms of the investment opportunities. Such summaries are intended for informational purposes only and do not purport to be complete, and each is qualified in its entirety by reference to the more detailed discussions contained in the investor document package relating to such investment opportunity. The information contained on the Site has been prepared by the Company without reference to any particular User’s investment requirements or financial situation, and potential investors are encouraged to consult with professional tax, legal and financial advisors before making any investment.
The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise. Past performance is not a guarantee of future performance. The contents of this Site do not constitute financial, legal, or tax advice. Investors are solely responsible for conducting any legal, accounting or other due diligence review. We may not have verified all information contained in offering materials on the Site. You should obtain investment and tax advice from your advisers before deciding to invest. Investment products are not FDIC insured, may lose value, and there is no bank guarantee.
None of the information contained on the Site constitutes a recommendation, solicitation or offer to buy or sell any securities, options or other financial instruments or other assets or provide any investment advice or service. Not all Investors are granted access to all portions of the Site. The information and services provided on the Site are not provided to, and may not be used by, any person or entity in any jurisdiction where the provision or use thereof would be contrary to applicable laws, rules or regulations of any governmental authority or where the Company is not authorized to provide such information or services. Some products and services described in the Site may not be available in all jurisdictions or to all clients.
You may not become a beneficial owner of 20% or more of any issuer’s outstanding voting equity securities (an ”Issuer Covered Person”) without becoming subject to certain “bad actor” disqualifying events described in Rule 506(d) under the Securities Act (a ”Disqualifying Event”). You represent that you are not subject to a Disqualifying Event and that you will promptly notify us in writing should any Disqualifying Events be applicable to you. We are not liable or responsible for making Rule 506(e) disclosures where an Issuer Covered Person does not inform us of a Disqualify Event or for determining whether any Issuer Covered Person is subject to a Disqualifying Event.
Our Site contains confidential information (“Confidential Information”), much of which pertains to the investments listed on our platform. Confidential Information includes all technical and non-technical data. You agree that all Confidential Information will be kept in confidence and that you will only use the Confidential Information for the purposes for which it was disclosed. To the extent applicable, you will not modify, reverse engineer, decompile, create other works from, or disassemble any such Confidential Information unless otherwise specified in writing by the disclosing party. These restrictions will not apply to Confidential Information to the extent it (a) was in the public domain at the time of disclosure; (b) became publically available after disclosure without breach of this agreement; (c) was lawfully received from a third party without such restrictions; (d) was known to you without such restrictions prior to your access to it via our Site; (e) was independently developed by you without breach of this agreement; (f) was generally made available to third parties by the Company without such restriction; or (g) is required by applicable law.

In consideration of your use of the Site, you agree to (a) provide accurate, current and complete information about you as may be prompted by any registration forms on the Site (“Registration Data”); (b) maintain the security of your password and identification; (c) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data, and any other information you provide to us, to keep it accurate, current and complete; and (d) be fully responsible for all use of your account and for any actions that take place using your account. You agree to (a) immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session when accessing the service. We will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section.

This license is revocable by us at any time without notice and with or without cause.
The Site may contain links to third party websites (“Linked Sites”). These links are provided only as a convenience. The inclusion of any link is not, and shall not be construed to imply, an affiliation, sponsorship, endorsement, approval, investigation, verification or monitoring by the Company of any information, materials, products, or services contained in or accessible through any Linked Site. In no event shall the Company be responsible for the information contained on any Linked Site or your use of or inability to use any Linked Site. Access and use of Linked Sites, including the information, material, products, and services on Linked Sites or available through Linked Sites, is solely at your own risk. Your access and use of the Linked Sites are governed by the Terms of Service and privacy policies of such Linked Sites, and we encourage you to carefully review all such terms and policies.
The Service may allow you and other Users to submit, post, transmit and share content with other Users. You are solely responsible for any such content (which may include photos, profiles, messages, notes, text, information, music, video, contact information for you or others, advertisements or other content) that you upload, publish, provide or display (hereinafter, “post”) on or through the Service or the Site, or transmit to or share with other Users (collectively, the “User Content”). It is against the Terms of Service to contact sponsoring real estate operating companies or borrowers directly or to attempt to enter into any transactions with such persons or entities outside of the Service. You understand and agree that we may, but are not obligated to, review and delete or remove (without notice) any User Content in our sole discretion, including without limitation, User Content that in our sole judgment violates these Terms of Service, might be offensive or illegal, or might violate the rights of, harm, or threaten the safety of, Users or others.
By posting User Content to any part of the Site, you automatically grant, and you represent and warrant that you have the right to grant us an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, fully paid, worldwide license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, publicly perform, publicly display, reformat, translate, excerpt (in whole or in part) and distribute such User Content for any purpose on or in connection with the Site or the promotion thereof, to prepare derivative works of, or incorporate into other works, such User Content, and to grant and authorize sublicenses of the foregoing. You may remove your User Content from the Site at any time. If you choose to remove your User Content, the license granted above will not expire.
You may review personal information (including credit data) posted by other Users on the Site, but you are not authorized to disclose or otherwise use such information for any purpose other than assessing the creditworthiness of other Users.
You acknowledge and agree that we may preserve content and may also disclose content if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with legal process, applicable laws or government requests; (b) enforce these Terms of Service; (c) respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third parties; or (d) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of the Company, its Users and the public. You understand that the technical processing and transmission of the Service, including your content, may involve (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices.

If you wish to terminate your account, you may do so by following the instructions on the Site. All provisions of this Agreement shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.

In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, we have adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at our sole discretion, the registrations of Users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. We may also, at our sole discretion, limit access to the Site and/or terminate the registrations of any Users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.
Because the Company operates largely on the Internet, it is necessary for you to consent to transact business with us online and electronically. Before you decide to do business electronically with us, you must satisfy the following computer hardware and software requirements: access to the Internet; an email account and related software capable of receiving email through the Internet; a web browser which is SSL-compliant and supports secure sessions, such as Internet Explorer 5.0 or above and Google Chrome 38 or above, or the equivalent software; and hardware capable of running this software.
We work with third-party escrow agents and administrators and use third-party bank accounts through which we receive all payments, and make all disbursements, through electronic funds transfers (ACH transfers) using the bank (or other financial institution) account information you provide to us. You authorize such bank or other financial account to pay any amounts described herein, and authorize our agents to make any and all investment disbursements to such account. You agree to provide us with updated information regarding your bank or other account upon the Company’s request and at any time that the information earlier provided is no longer valid.
As part of doing business with us, you must also consent to our giving you certain disclosures electronically, either via our Site or to the email address you provide to us. By agreeing to the Terms of Service, you agree to receive electronically all documents, communications, notices, contracts, and agreements, including any IRS Form 1099 or other tax forms, schedules or information statements, arising from or relating to your registration as an investor on our Site, any investments you may make, your use of this Service, and the servicing of any investment you may make (each, a “Disclosure”), from us or any service provider we may use. An IRS Form 1099 refers to any Form 1099 or other Form, Schedule or information statement, including corrections to such documents, required to be provided pursuant to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service rules and regulations and that may be provided electronically (each, an “IRS Form 1099”). The decision to do business with us electronically is yours. This document informs you of your rights concerning Disclosures.
Your consent to receive Disclosures and transact business electronically, and our agreement to do so, applies to any transactions to which such Disclosures relate between you and us. Your consent will remain in effect for so long as you are a User and, if you are no longer a User, will continue until such a time as all Disclosures relevant to transactions that occurred while you were a User have been made.
You may not withdraw such consent as long as you have any outstanding investments made through the Site. If you have no outstanding investments made through the site and wish to withdraw consent to doing business electronically, we will terminate your registered User account with us.
You also expressly consent to receiving messages, including emails (including SMS/text messages), and substantially similar messages widely distributed on telephone answering or voicemail systems from us, our affiliates, marketing partners, agents and others calling at their request or on their behalf, at any telephone numbers that you have provided or may provide in the future (including any cellular telephone numbers). Your cellular or mobile telephone provider will charge you according to the type of plan you carry.
If you are accessing our site and the Disclosures electronically via a mobile device (such as a smart phone, tablet, and the like), in addition to the above requirements you must make sure that you have software on your mobile device that allows you to print and save the Disclosures presented to you during the application process. These applications can be found for most mobile devices in the device’s respective “app store.” If you do not have these capabilities on your mobile device, please access our site through a device that provides these capabilities.
You must keep us informed of any change in your e-mail address, your home mailing address, or your telephone number so that we can maintain communications with you about your authorization as a registered User and so that you can continue to receive all Disclosures in a timely fashion. You can contact us by e-mail at email@example.com or by calling us at 212-966-1015. You may also reach us in writing at the following address: Prodigy Network, 40 Wall St., 17th Floor, The Trump Building, New York, NY 10005.

CERTAIN FEDERAL AND STATE LAWS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES OR LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES. IF THESE LAWS APPLY TO YOU, SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS OR LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU, AND YOU MAY HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS.
By visiting or using the Site and/or the Service, you agree that the laws of the State of New York, without regard to any principles of conflict of laws that would require or permit the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction, will govern these Terms of Service. By agreeing to the Terms and using the Site and the Service, you agree to submit to personal jurisdiction in New York 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 us, any dispute arising out of or relating to the Terms of Service, 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 New York. Such arbitration must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either we or you may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for injunctive relief without breach of this arbitration provision.
You agree to indemnify and hold the Company, its subsidiaries and affiliates, and each of its and their directors, officers, agents, contractors, employees and representatives, harmless from and against any loss, liability, claim, demand, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, arising out of or in connection with your use of the Service or the Site, your conduct in connection with the Service or the Site or with other Users of the Service or the Site, or any violation of these Terms of Service or of any law or the rights of any third party, any of your User Content, and any third party content you post or share on or through the Site. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: ”A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” If you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine. In addition, you hereby release any claims you may have against us and any employee, officer, director or affiliate of the Company that are in anyway related to your use of the Site or Service, including any recommendations or referrals you may receive as a result of your registration with us. You are solely responsible for your use of the Site or Service, for any content you provide, and for any consequences thereof, including the use of your content by other Users and third parties.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms of Service, in no event shall anything in these Terms of Service be deemed to be a waiver, and we will not assert there has been a waiver, that would be permissible under Section 14 of the Securities Act of 1933, Section 29(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or any other applicable provision of federal and state securities laws.
You acknowledge and agree that any questions, comments, suggestions, ideas, feedback or other information about the Site or the Service (“Submissions”), provided by you to us are non-confidential and shall become the sole property of the Company.

The failure of the Company to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision in that or any other instance.

If any provision of these Terms of Service shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms of Service and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
