AGREEMENT TO TERMS OF USE

Please read the following terms and conditions (“Terms of Use”) before using the Colchis Capital Management, LP (the “Colchis”) website (the “Site”).  Your access to and use of the Site is subject to these Terms of Use and all applicable laws and regulations.  The Terms of Use constitute a legal agreement between you and Colchis.  The Site is available only to, and may only be used by, individuals who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law.  By accessing and using the Site, you accept, without qualification, these Terms of Use.  If you do not approve and accept these Terms of Use without qualification, you should exit the Site immediately.

JURISDICTIONAL LIMITATIONS

Colchis is a Securities and Exchange Commission registered investment adviser.  Colchis may only transact business or render personalized investment advice in those states and international jurisdictions where Colchis is registered, has filed notice, status or is otherwise excluded or exempted from notice or registration requirements.  The purpose of the Site is only to provide information.  Any communications with prospective clients residing in states or international jurisdictions where Colchis and its investment adviser representatives (if any) are not registered or licensed shall be limited so as to not trigger registration or licensing requirements.  Nothing on the Site should be construed as investment advice, which can be provided only in one-on-one communications.

PERSONAL & NON-COMMERCIAL USE LIMITATION

The Site is for your personal and non-commercial use, and Colchis grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable and limited personal license to access and use the Site, conditioned on your continued compliance with these Terms of Use.  You may not modify, copy (except as set forth below), distribute, transmit, display, perform, reproduce, publish, license, create derivative works from, transfer, or sell any information, products or services obtained from the Site.  You may not link other websites to the Site without the prior written permission of Colchis.  You may print one hardcopy of the information and download one temporary copy of the information into one single computer’s memory solely for your own personal, non-commercial use and not for distribution, provided that all relevant copyright, trademark and other proprietary notices are kept intact.  

If you are assigned a user name and password to access or use certain parts of the Site, you may not allow others to use them. If your password has been compromised for any reason, you must contact us immediately for a new password.  If you provide your password to any third party, you will be solely responsible for any actions taken by such third party using your password. All information on any non-public (i.e., password-restricted) areas of the Site is confidential and private.  You may not disclose or distribute it to any other person for any purpose; it is made available solely for your personal use in connection with your investment activities.

You may not use the Site to advertise or perform any commercial solicitation.  You may not use any robot, spider, scraper or other automated means to access the Site for any purpose without Colchis’s prior written permission.  You may not take any action that imposes, or that we in our sole discretion believe may impose, an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure, interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Site or any activities conducted on the Site, or bypass any measures we use to prevent or restrict access to the Site.  Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.

NO SECURITIES OFFERING OR INVESTMENT ADVICE

The information on the Site is intended to enable investors to understand the nature of Colchis’s financial advisory services.  It is not intended as and does not constitute investment advice or legal or tax advice or an offer to sell any securities to any person or a solicitation of any person of any offer to purchase any securities.  The information in the Site should not be construed as any endorsement, recommendation or sponsorship of any company or security by Colchis.  There are inherent risks in relying on, using or retrieving any information found on the Site, and Colchis urges you to make sure you understand these risks before relying on, using or retrieving any information on the Site.  You should evaluate the information made available through the Site, and you should seek the advice of professionals, as appropriate, to evaluate any opinion, advice, product, service or other information.  You agree that Colchis is not liable for any action you take or decision you make in reliance on any information on the Site.

Colchis’s services are designed to integrate with the services provided by its clients’ other financial, legal and tax advisers, not to replace their services.  Colchis advises its clients from time to time on non-investment related matters, but clients must rely on their other professional advisers for final approval and/or implementation of non-investment matters.

You acknowledge that any requests for information are unsolicited and any information provided shall neither constitute nor be construed as investment advice by Colchis to you or constitute the formation of an investment advisory relationship, or any other client relationship.  Colchis does not guarantee the suitability or potential value of any particular investment or information source.  As described in more detail below under “DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY,” all such investment information or other information is provided “AS IS” without warranty of any kind.  Colchis and its principals and employees may invest in or otherwise hold interests in companies and securities that are discussed on the Site.
