THE SERVICES ARE MARKETED WITH THE INTENTION THAT THEY ARE USED SOLELY BY SOPHISTICATED LICENSED REAL ESTATE BROKERS.
You may access the Site generally and/or browse generally without registering with the Swarm. To access the Services, including getting access to real estate investment offerings, learning about our real estate practices, receiving information from other user members about their best practices and presenting your own real estate investment deal, you must register to create an account (“Account”) and meet certain criteria, including payment of the Membership Fee. You must complete the registration process by providing us with current, complete and accurate information. Failure to provide current, complete and accurate information will be a breach of the conditions of your membership and your membership will be terminated if you are in breach under this section. You are solely responsible for updating any and all pertinent registration information. Failure to do so shall constitute a breach of the Terms of Service which may result in immediate termination of your account. You agree to notify the Swarm immediately in writing of any unauthorized use of your Account or any other breach of security. You are solely responsible for maintaining the security of your passwords and the security of your account. You will not let anyone else access your Account, or do anything else that might jeopardize the security of your Account. You will not transfer your Account to anyone. You acknowledge and agree that you are liable for any damages or losses to the Swarm and other Users by any use of your Account, either authorized or unauthorized. You agree that your Account will be self-directed and that you are solely responsible for all investment decisions.
Although the Services may provide data, information or content provided by third-parties or us relating to investment strategies and/or opportunities to buy and/or sell securities, you should not interpret any such content as tax, legal, financial, or investment advice or a recommendation to invest in any real estate investment opportunity offered directly by other Users. This is not a real estate investment platform, but an educational platform where business best practices are taught in common forum. Any decision to invest shall be based solely on your own consideration and analysis of the risks involving a particular offering and is made at your own risk. You should seek the advice of an attorney, financial analyst or accountant before making any investment decision, including any decisions of risks you may wish to take that you are informed about through the Swarm. You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for determining the suitability of an investment or strategy and accept the risks associated with such decisions, which include the risk of losing the entire amount of your principal. This is a real risk.
We have no special relationship with or fiduciary duty to you and your use of the Site or the Services does not create such a relationship. Fiduciary relationships within the Swarm will be created explicitly in writing, signed by all parties, otherwise the Swarm, its Users, Vendors or other Partners are not acting with your best interest in mind, but acting according to their own wishes. You agree and acknowledge that you are solely responsible for conducting legal, accounting and other due diligence review on the investment opportunities offered directly by other Users. You are strongly advised to consult a licensed legal professional and investment advisor for any legal, tax, insurance, or investment advice as the Swarm does not provide any of the foregoing advice or recommendations or provide any due diligence review. With this said, any individual posting repeated poor advice is subject to their membership being terminated. We do not review this advice, but rely on the contributions of our members to help us understand who is responsible for what statements.
Real Estate Investment Opportunities
One of the Services the Swarm offers is the facilitation of real estate investment opportunities during in-person or virtual meetings (each, a “Club Meeting”). The Swarm does not endorse any of the opportunities offered directly by other Users, including those presented at a Club Meeting, nor does the Swarm make any recommendations regarding the appropriateness of opportunities for any investor. THE PRESENTATION OF REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES DURING A CLUB MEETING ARE FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. ANY SUCH PRESENTATION DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFER, OR SOLICITATION OF AN OFFER, TO BUY OR SELL SECURITIES, NOR A RECOMMENDATION TO BUY OR SELL ANY SECURITIES. OFFERS TO SELL, OR SOLICITATIONS OF OFFERS TO BUY, ANY SECURITY CAN ONLY BE MADE THROUGH OFFICIAL OFFERING DOCUMENTS PROVIDED BY THE ISSUER, WHICH CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES, RISKS, FEES, AND EXPENSES. FURTHERMORE, ANY INFORMATION ABOUT HOW TO CONDUCT DUE DILIGENCE IS EDUCATIONAL IN NATURE, AND YOU SHOULD ONLY USE THIS EDUCATIONAL INFORMATION IN PRELIMINARY REVIEW AS A WAY TO HAVE A BETTER CONVERSATION WITH YOUR TEAM OF LICENSED PROFESSIONALS TO DISCUSS THE SUITABILITY OF ANY STRATEGY FOR YOUR OWN BUSINESS.
The terms of any investment opportunity provided by an issuer shall be negotiated and agreed to directly between the issuer and individual Users. The Swarm takes no part in the negotiation or execution of transactions for the purchase or sale of securities, and at no time has possession of or access to funds or securities. The Swarm will not enforce any aspect of your contract(s), express, or implied, and has absolutely no interest in private dealings between Users. The Swarm does not endorse any User. You agree and acknowledge that none of the Swarm, its officers, directors, employees, representatives, affiliates or agents, including Ryan Widerberg, will participate in the offer to sell or solicitations of offers to buy any securities, or make a recommendation to buy or sell any securities, offered by other Users.
Although the Swarm may provide data, information or content provided by third-parties or us relating to investment strategies and/or opportunities to buy and/or sell securities, you should not interpret any such content as tax, legal, financial, or investment advice or a recommendation to invest in any real estate investment opportunity offered by other Users. Investment opportunities presented during a Club Meeting are speculative and involve substantial risk. Any decision to invest shall be based solely on your own consideration and analysis of the risks involving a particular offering and is made at your own risk. You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for determining the suitability of an investment or strategy and accept the risks associated with such decisions, which include the risk of losing the entire amount of your principal.
The Swarm may also provide information regarding business regulations, including tax, legal, financial and investment regulations. This information is educational and academic in nature, and you should not consider it as individual advice under any circumstances. We do not know the intricacies of your business or position, and you understand that only your professional team can understand your business enough to offer competent advice.
Federal and state securities law and regulations restrict investment in private securities offerings. Investments in private placement are speculative and involve a high degree of risk. Real Estate Investments are foremost in the high degrees of risk, especially those investments that are based on the financial instruments of specific transactions rather than ownership interests in land. Investments in private placements are also highly illiquid. You should not invest with other Users unless you are willing to accept the risks associated with private investments and are able to bear the loss of your entire investment. Before you invest in any investment opportunities offered by other Users, the Swarm recommends that you consult with a financial advisor, attorney, accountant, and any other professional that can help you to understand and assess the risks associated with any investment opportunity. THE SWARM IS NOT A REGISTERED BROKER-DEALER, INVESTMENT ADVISOR, INVESTMENT MANAGER, MORTGAGE LOAN BROKER, MORTGAGE LOAN ORIGINATOR, ATTORNEY, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL ANALYST OR FUNDING PORTAL, AND DOES NOT PROVIDE ANY ADVICE, RECOMMENDATIONS OR PROVIDE ANY DUE DILIGENCE REVIEW.

The Materials do not include User Content (as defined below). The Swarm intends to operate within the safe harbor of 47 U.S.C. § 230 and nothing herein shall be enforced where it violates FCC Section 230. The Materials are protected by copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, and other intellectual property laws and proprietary rights. You agree to comply with all applicable laws by not copying or using proprietary content, except as allowed by these Terms or by written consent of the owner of the proprietary rights.

Your access to or use of the Site or the Services does not grant or transfer to you ownership interest or any rights in the Materials other than those rights expressly granted in these Terms.
You and other users may present real estate investment opportunities, as well as submit, post, transmit and share comments or materials through the Swarm (“User Content”). You are solely responsible for User Content that you offer, post, transmit, or share through the Swarm, as well as for any actions taken by the Swarm or other Users as a result of your User Content. You agree and understand that you may receive or be exposed to User Content provided by others that is inaccurate, inappropriate, misleading, unlawful, offensive or otherwise objectionable, and that the Swarm makes no representations or warranties regarding User Content and is not responsible for the accuracy, usefulness, or intellectual property rights of or relating to User Content. You hereby waive any legal or equitable rights or remedies you have or may have against the Swarm with respect to User Content provided by you or others.

You represent and warrant that all information that you provide to the Swarm or through the Site is accurate, complete and truthful.
The Swarm, its officers, directors, employees, representatives, affiliates or agents, including Ryan Widerberg, are expected to rely upon the information you provide as true, accurate and complete without independent verification. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your Account if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, not current, or incomplete. By posting, transmitting, or sharing your User Content with the Swarm, you hereby (i) grant to the Swarm and its affiliates, sublicensees, partners, designees, and assignees, a worldwide, non-exclusive, fully paid-up, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, sublicensable, and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, modify, adapt, prepare derivative works of, publicly display, publicly perform, and otherwise exploit your User Content and derivatives thereof for any purpose and in any media form, and (ii) grant to other Users a non-exclusive license to access or otherwise use your User Content for personal or commercial use. You hereby affirm, represent, and warrant that: (i) you either own the User Content or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to grant the rights and license set forth herein, and (ii) the User Content or any use of the User Content pursuant to these Terms, does not and will not: (a) infringe, violate, or misappropriate any third-party right, including any intellectual property or proprietary right; (b) violate any applicable laws, rules, or regulation (including, without limitation, United States federal and state securities laws); or (c) require the Swarm to obtain a license from or pay fees or royalties to any third party.
Securities Products; No Advice Provided
The presentation of real estate investment opportunities by other Users during a Club Meeting are for informational purposes only. Any such presentation does not constitute an offer, or solicitation of an offer, to buy or sell securities, nor a recommendation to buy or sell any securities. Offers to sell, or solicitations of offers to buy, any security can only be made through official offering documents provided by the issuer, which contain important information about investment objectives, risks, fees and expenses. You agree that you understand that the form of any offer should be on the Board of Real Estate Contract applicable to your local jurisdiction and cannot be adequately conveyed through the Site. The terms of any investment opportunity provided by an issuer shall be negotiated and agreed to directly between the issuer and individual Users, and the Swarm has no privity to this.
Securities offered directly by other Users are only suitable for investors who are familiar with and willing to accept the high risks associated with private investments, including the risk of complete loss of your investment. Securities sold through private placements are not publicly traded and, therefore, are illiquid unless registered with the SEC. Additionally, securities may be subject to restrictions on resale or transfer including holding period requirements. Investing in private placements requires high risk tolerance, low liquidity need, and long-term commitments. Users must be able to afford to lose their entire investment. Investment products are not FDIC insured, may lose value, and there is no bank guarantee.
None of the information provided through the Services constitutes a recommendation, solicitation or offer by the Swarm, its officers, directors, employees, representatives, affiliates or agents, including Ryan Widerberg, to buy or sell any securities or other financial instruments or other assets or provide any investment advice or services. All information contained in the Services has been prepared without reference to any particular User’s investment requirements or financial situation. The Services 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, regulatory or self-regulatory organization or clearing organization, or where the Swarm is not authorized to provide such information or services. Some Services may not be available in all jurisdictions or to all Users. The Services and all content, services and features available through the Services are intended for informational purposes only. They are not intended to substitute for professional investment, financial or legal advice. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE NOT RELYING ON THE SWARM OR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, REPRESENTATIVES OR AGENTS, INCLUDING RYAN WIDERBERG, IN MAKING AN INVESTMENT DECISION. ALWAYS CONSIDER SEEKING THE ADVICE OF A QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL BEFORE MAKING DECISIONS REGARDING YOUR BUSINESS AND/OR INVESTMENTS. THE SWARM DOES NOT ENDORSE ANY INVESTMENTS AND SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE IN ANY WAY FOR ANY TRANSACTIONS YOU ENTER INTO WITH OTHER USERS. YOU AGREE THAT THE SWARM AND ITS AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, REPRESENTATIVES OR AGENTS, INCLUDING RYAN WIDERBERG, WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGES OF ANY SORT INCURRED AS THE RESULT OF ANY INTERACTIONS BETWEEN YOU AND OTHER USERS.
Featuring of or discussion through the Services of any offering does not constitute endorsement by the Swarm or representation of the quality of any potential investment in such offering. The Swarm does not endorse any issuer or any underlying assets. The securities being offered directly by other Users have not been registered under the Securities Act, in reliance, among other exemptions, on the exemptive provisions of Regulation D under the Securities Act. No assurance can be given that any offering currently qualifies or will continue to qualify under one or more of exemptive provisions from registration due to, among other things, the adequacy of disclosure and the manner of distribution, the existence of similar offerings in the past or in the future, or a change of any securities law or regulation that has retroactive effect. No governmental agency has reviewed the offerings presented through the Services and no state or federal agency has passed upon either the adequacy of the disclosure contained herein or the fairness of the terms of any offering. The exemptions relied upon for such offerings are significantly dependent upon the accuracy of the representations of the investors to be made to the issuers and issuers presenting offerings. In the event that any such representations prove to be untrue, the registration exemptions relied upon by an issuer in selling the securities might not be available and substantial liability to such issuer would result under applicable securities laws for rescission or damages. These risks are non-exhaustive and are intended to highlight certain risks associated with investing in securities that are not registered with the SEC. We strongly advise you to consult a legal, tax and financial professional before investing, and carefully review all the specific risk disclosures provided as part of any offering materials AND ASK THE ISSUER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE OR REQUEST ADDITIONAL INFORMATION. The Swarm receives no commission or transaction-based compensation in connection with the purchase or sale of securities by any User. The Swarm is not in contract with any private agreement or contract between Users. The Swarm is not a registered broker-dealer, funding portal, investment adviser or investment manager, and does not offer investment advice or advise on the raising of capital through securities offerings. The Swarm does not recommend or otherwise suggest that any investor make an investment in a particular offering, or that any issuer offer securities to a particular User. The Swarm takes no part in the negotiation or execution of transactions for the purchase or sale of securities, and at no time has possession of or access to funds or securities. The Swarm cannot guarantee that Users will use the proceeds of any offering in accordance with the stated purpose. Users acknowledge and agree that the Swarm makes no representation, warranty or assurance that the offerings presented directly by other Users are made in accordance with federal and/or state securities law, including the exemption to the sale of unregistered securities, or the legality of any offerings therein. Any gratis offers, gifts with purchase, or bonus items offered by the Swarm, or Illinois Home Auctions Corporation are not guaranteed and are subject to termination, substitution or elimination.

Your interaction with other Users is solely between you and such other Users. YOU AGREE THAT THE SWARM AND ITS AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, REPRESENTATIVES OR AGENTS, INCLUDING RYAN WIDERBERG, WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY SORT INCURRED AS THE RESULT OF ANY INTERACTIONS BETWEEN YOU AND OTHER USERS.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE SWARM HAS OFFERED ITS SERVICES AND ENTERED INTO THE TERMS IN RELIANCE UPON THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH HEREIN, THAT THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH HEREIN REFLECT A REASONABLE AND FAIR ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN YOU AND THE SWARM, AND THAT THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH HEREIN FORM AN ESSENTIAL BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND THE SWARM. THE SWARM WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE SERVICES TO YOU ON AN ECONOMICALLY REASONABLE BASIS WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS. WE WOULD NOT BE WILLING TO DO BUSINESS WITH YOU WITHOUT THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. Please note that some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so some of the above exclusions may not apply to you. Check your local laws for any restrictions or limitations regarding the exclusion of implied warranties. The Swarm assumes no responsibility for, and shall not be liable for, any damages to or viruses that may infect, your computer equipment or other property on account of your access to, use of, or browsing in the Site or your downloading of any materials, data, text, images, video, or audio from the Site. We do not, and cannot, guarantee that any User is an “accredited investor,” as defined by Rule 501 of Regulation D under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
Except as explicitly stated otherwise, legal notices to the Swarm should be emailed to email@example.com. Legal notices to you will be provided either to the email or mail address you provide to the Swarm during the account registration process or posted on the Site. Notice will be deemed given 24 hours after email is sent, unless the sending party is notified that the email address is invalid. Notice will be deemed given three days after the date of mailing or posting on the Site, as applicable. You agree that all notices and other communications that the Swarm provides to you electronically (by email or by posting on the Site) satisfies any legal requirement that such notice or communication be in writing.
Any dispute, question or difference arising between you and the Swarm, its officers, directors, employees or any affiliate in connection with the Services or otherwise in regard to the relationship of the parties by virtue of these Terms, including the construction and scope of these Terms, that cannot be amicably resolved, shall be finally settled in accordance with Commercial Arbitration rules and regulations of the American Arbitration Association (“Association”) then in effect by one or more arbitrators mutually selected by the parties from the commercial panel of the Association. The arbitrator(s) to be appointed shall be English speaking persons, although a User has an absolute right to hire at that User’s expense a translator at his or her choosing. The arbitrator(s) shall have the power to extend time for pronouncing the award with the consent of the parties. Judgment upon an arbitration may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction thereof, and shall be binding, final and non-appealable. The arbitrator(s) shall have the power to award any and all remedies and relief whatsoever that is deemed appropriate under the circumstances, including, but not limited to, money damages and injunctive relief. This arbitration provision shall be deemed to be self-executing and shall remain in full force and effect after the expiration or termination of these Terms. In the event any party fails to appear at any arbitration proceeding, an award may be entered against such party by default or otherwise notwithstanding said failure to appear. You hereby consent to arbitration to be held within the City of Chicago, State of Illinois, and irrevocably agree that all actions or proceedings relating to these Terms shall take place in the City of Chicago and waive any objections that you may have based on improper venue or forum non conveniens. The arbitrator(s)’ fees in connection with any such arbitration proceeding shall be shared equally between the arbitrating parties.
Choice of Law
The Terms and your use of the Services shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the state of Illinois, without regard to conflicts of law's provisions. YOU HEREBY WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIM, ACTION OR PROCEEDING, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, ARISING OUT OF, OR RELATING TO, THESE TERMS OF SERVICE TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ABSENT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL.
Neither party will be responsible for failure to perform any obligation under these Terms due to causes beyond the reasonable control of such party, including but not limited to strikes, lockouts, riots, epidemics, war, government regulation, fire, flood, natural disasters, Acts of God, or inadequacies of equipment, or other cause beyond the reasonable control of such party.
If any provision of the Terms is found unenforceable, that provision will be deemed to be modified to the extent necessary to make it enforceable, while preserving its intent. If any provision of the Terms is nonetheless held unenforceable in any jurisdiction, the provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible in that jurisdiction, and the enforceability of the Terms in any other jurisdiction and of the remaining provisions in that jurisdiction will not be affected. You further agree to replace such void or unenforceable provision of this Agreement with a valid and enforceable provision that will achieve, to the extent possible, the economic, business and other purposes of such void or unenforceable provision.
Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act/Uniform Electronic Transactions Act
The Federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (“ESIGN”) and similar state laws, particularly the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (“UETA”), authorize the creation of legally binding and enforceable agreements utilizing electronic records and signatures. ESIGN and UETA require businesses that want to use electronic records or signatures in consumer transactions to obtain the consumer’s consent to receive information electronically. When a User registers on the Site, we obtain his or her consent to transact business electronically and maintain electronic records in compliance with ESIGN and UETA requirements. Your use of electronic signatures to sign documents legally binds you in the same manner as if you had manually signed such documents. The use of electronic versions of documents fully satisfies any requirement that such documents be provided to you in writing. If you sign electronically, you represent that you can access and retain a record of such documents. You agree that you are responsible for understanding these documents and agree to conduct business by electronic means. You are obligated to review the Site periodically for changes and modifications and agree not to contest the admissibility or enforceability the Site’s electronically stored copy of this Agreement in any proceeding arising out of this Agreement. Although you consent to electronic delivery, you may elect to deliver communications by other means and such delivery shall not affect your consent. You may revoke consent to electronic delivery of communications and receive a paper version at your election. The Swarm shall have a reasonable period to effect such a change. If you elect to use electronic delivery, you agree and represent that you have a suitable computer with Internet access, an email address and the availability to download, save and/or print communications to retain a record of such communications. You agree that you are solely responsible for maintaining such equipment and services required for online access.
Waiver and Integration
A provision of these Terms may be waived only by a written instrument executed by the party entitled to the benefit of such provision. The failure of any party at any time to require performance of any provision of these Terms will in no manner affect such party’s right at a later time to enforce the same. A waiver of any breach of any provision of these Terms will not be construed as a continuing waiver of other breaches of the same or other provisions of these Terms. These Terms of Service and other referenced materials are the entire agreement between you and the Swarm with respect to the Services, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals (whether oral, written or electronic) between you and the Swarm with respect to the Services and govern the future relationship.
Changes to the Terms
Your use of the Site and the Services is governed by the then-current version of the Terms in effect on the date of such use. The Swarm may, at its sole discretion, modify the Terms and/or other policies and procedures governing the Service at any time without notice or liability by posting the modified Terms, policies or procedures to the Site. The date of any effective changes shall be reflected at the bottom of this page and, upon request, we will provide you with information regarding any changes made. Your continued use of the Services after modified Terms have been posted or otherwise provided to you constitutes your agreement to be bound by the then-current Terms.
