To register on the Website You must be over eighteen years of age and agree to a separate Membership Agreement. You must ensure that the details provided by You on registration or at any time are correct and complete. You must inform us immediately of any changes to the information that You provided when registering by updating your personal details in order that Growth Capital Ventures can communicate with You effectively.
3. Relationship to Other Agreements
Whilst using the Website, You may choose to agree to be bound by certain other agreements. For example, if You wish to join Growth Capital Ventures as a member, You will need to agree to the Membership Agreement, and if You wish to invest in a company through the Website, You will also need to agree to the relevant Limited Partnership Agreement. Growth Capital Ventures refer to all of these other agreements as the "Platform Agreements", because rather than just governing your technical use of the Website, they set out the substantive terms that govern your relationship with the Company when You make use of our platform.
The Website Agreements will continue to apply to You even after You have agreed to a Platform Agreement. In the case it turns out that there is a conflict between the Website Agreements and a Platform Agreement that You agree to, the Platform Agreement will always take precedence.
4. Intellectual Property
The Website may include at any given time text, graphics, logos, icons, images, sound clips, photos, video clips and data compilations, together with the Website's page layout, underlying code and software that Growth Capital Ventures collectively refer to as "Content".
All of the Content is the property of the Company, our affiliates or third parties with whom we do business. The Content is protected by United Kingdom and international intellectual property laws including but not limited to, copyright, trade marks, database rights and other relevant laws. Except as provided by Part 1, Chapter 3 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (which contains what are generally known as the "fair use" provisions for copyrighted materials), You may not reproduce, modify, copy, distribute, store or in any other fashion re-use material from the Website unless otherwise indicated on the Website or unless given express written permission to do so by the Company.
5. Links from our Website
This Website may contain links to other websites for your convenience. Unless Growth Capital Ventures expressly state otherwise, You should assume that these other websites are not under our control. The Company assumes no responsibility for the content or resources of such websites, and thus disclaims liability for any and all forms of loss or damage arising out of their use. Additionally, even if Growth Capital Ventures have included a link to another website on this Website, this does not mean that the Company endorses the other website or in any way recommend its use.
6. Your use of the Website
You may not use the Website for any of the following purposes:
6.1. transmitting material that encourages conduct that constitutes a criminal offence or otherwise breaches any applicable laws, regulations, or codes of practice;
6.2. interfering with any other persons use or enjoyment of the Website; or
6.3. making or storing electronic copies of materials protected by copyright without permission of the owner. You will be responsible for Growth Capital Ventures' losses and costs resulting from your breach of this clause 6.
If You choose to agree to the Membership Agreement, You will see that it (and other Platform Agreements) contains promises to You about which parts of the Website and its Content Growth Capital Ventures are responsible for and which parts we are not. This means that, if You are a party to one of those agreements and something goes wrong with your use of the Website, You may be able to hold the Company responsible depending on the circumstances.

This is not intended to exclude or restrict the Company's liability for death or personal injury arising from its negligence, nor liability for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation nor any other liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law;
7.5. Users should be aware that they use the Website and its Content at their own risk.
8. Advertising and Sponsorship
