Terms of Service

Last Modified: September 10, 2020‌

Acceptance of the Terms of Service

Thank you for using Boost, a website that gives start-ups and entrepreneurs access to experienced business people and other experts who can help you solve problems and grow your business. Boost provides and facilitates opportunities to consult and seek the advice of mentors who are here to help.

If you are an Advisor, your relationship with Boost is primarily governed by a separate agreement between you and Boost (each, an “Advisor Agreement”). As a result, some but not all terms and conditions in these Terms of Service will apply to you. If and to the extent there is a conflict between these Terms of Service and your Advisor Agreement, the Advisor Agreement will control unless otherwise specifically provided for in these Terms of Service. Note that in either case, if you are a citizen or resident of a foreign country, your relationship with Boost will still be subject to the laws of the United States and the State of Maryland, as provided below.

In this document (and any documents we incorporate by reference) we refer to the services available through Boost as our “Services.” These terms of service (including any incorporated documents) are collectively the “Terms of Service.”  The Terms of Service govern your access to and use of www.boostinco.com (the “Website”), including any content, functionality, and services offered on or through the Website.  The words “you” and “your” refer to anyone who accesses the Website or uses the Services.

You will find Boost’s Privacy Policy here. The Privacy Policy has information and notices concerning Boost’s collection and use of your personal information.

Boost is owned and operated by Boost Innovation, LLC (together, “Boost”, “we,” and “our”). These Terms of Service are a binding agreement between you and Boost. Please read the Terms of Service and our Privacy Policy carefully before you start to use the Website. By using the Website you accept and agree to be bound and abide by these Terms of Service. If you do not want to agree to these Terms of Service you must not access or use the Website.

This Website is offered and available to users who are 18 years of age or older and reside in the United States or any of its territories or possessions. By using this Website, you represent and warrant that you are of legal age to form a binding contract with Boost and meet all of the foregoing eligibility requirements. If you do not meet all of these requirements, you must not access or use the Website.

Changes to the Terms of Service

Boost may revise and update the Website and these Terms of Service (including without limitation any fees that may apply) from time to time in its sole discretion. 

Boost will send an email to all Members and Advisors if these Terms of Service change, so it is important you provide correct contact information and keep it current. In addition, Boost will place a notice on its home page when changes are made to these Terms of Service. 

All changes are effective immediately when we post them, and apply to all access to and use of the Website thereafter. However, any changes to the dispute resolution provisions set out in Governing Law and Jurisdiction (below) will not apply to any disputes for which the parties have actual notice on or before the date the change is posted on the Website.

Your continued use of the Website following the posting of revised Terms of Service means that you accept and agree to the changes. You are expected to check this page from time to time so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you.

Registration, Website Access, Limited License and Security

To access the Website and use the Services an individual must complete an account registration directly through the Website. After you complete an account registration you will have a limited, non-exclusive and non-transferable license to access the Website as either a “Member” or an “Advisor” (each defined below). By “access,” we mean navigating to any of our Website pages and using the Services. Everything you find on the Website is available “as is” and “as available.” This means that we cannot not guarantee that you will always be able to access the Website or the Services, or that your use will be uninterrupted or error-free. There are many things that can prevent or interrupt your access to the Website, and we are not responsible for anything we cannot control, such as the Internet. You are responsible for making all arrangements and providing all software necessary for you to access the Internet and the Website.  We will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of the Website or Services are unavailable at any time or for any period.

BOOST AND THIS WEBSITE ARE AVAILABLE ONLY FOR THE PURPOSE OF PROVIDING THE SERVICES, SPECIFICALLY TO CONNECT MEMBERS AND ADVISORS AND PROVIDE A PLATFORM FOR THEM TO EXCHANGE INFORMATION AND ADVICE.  YOU ACKNOLWEDGE AND AGREE THAT BOOST IS NOT A PARTY TO ANY AGREEMENT(S) BETWEEN MEMBERS AND/OR ADVISORS.  

You may not have more than 1 active Boost account and Boost may suspend or terminate your Boost account and your access to the Website if you create more than 1 Boost account. You are solely responsible for not disclosing your password to anyone for all activities under your Boost Account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You must immediately notify Boost if you become aware of any unauthorized use of your Boost account.

‌To access the Website or some of the resources it offers, you may be asked to provide certain registration details or other information. It is a condition of your use of the Website that all the information you provide on the Website is correct, current, and complete. You agree that all information you provide to register with this Website or otherwise, including, but not limited to, through the use of any interactive features on the Website, is governed by our Privacy Policy and you consent to all actions we take with respect to your information consistent with our Privacy Policy.

You can also register to join by logging into your account with certain third party social networking sites (“SNS”) (each a “Third Party Account”) via our Website.  Facebook or LinkedIn are examples (but not the only possibilities) of an SNS you might register through.

To link your Boost account and a Third Party Accounts, you allow Boost to access your Third Party Account subject to the applicable Third Party Account terms and conditions. If you link your Boost account, you must be entitled to disclose your Third Party Account login information and grant Boost access to that Third Party Account, and you represent that doing so does not breach any of the Third Party Account terms and conditions. You also represent that linking your Boost account will not obligate Boost to pay any fees or be any usage limitations that might apply to the Third Party Account.

You acknowledge that granting Boost access to a Third Party Account will allow Boost to access, make available and store (if applicable) any Content you provided to and stored in your Third Party Account (“SNS Content”). Further, your profile page may include information based on personal information you provide or that we access through an SNS (described below). That SNS Content may then be available on and through the Website. This could include personal information posted to your Third Party Account(s) that will be available on and through your Boost Account on the Website, depending on the Third Party Account and how you configure the privacy settings on each Third Party Account. Boost is not responsible for any SNS Content. Boost does not review any SNS Content for any reason (including without limitation, for accuracy, legality or non-infringement). Any SNS Content made available to Boost will be deemed Member Content unless these Terms of Service provide otherwise.  

ONLY YOUR AGREEMENT(S) WITH A THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDER WILL GOVERN YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE APPLICABLE THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDER. If a Third Party Account becomes unavailable for any reason (such as, but without limitation, because access is terminated by the Third Party Account provider), the Website will no longer make your SNS Content available on the Boost Website. You may always disable Boost’s connection to a Third Party Account through your profile page on the Website. 

If you choose, or are provided with, a user name, password, or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any other person or entity. You also acknowledge that your account is personal to you and agree not to provide any other person with access to this Website or portions of it using your user name, password, or other security information. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your user name or password or any other breach of security. You also agree to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. You should use particular caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information.

Terminating An Account

In addition to Boost’s other rights and remedies provided for in these Terms of Service we may, in our sole discretion, cancel any Boost registration and terminate these Terms of Service and/or your access to the Website at any time, without prior notice, for any reason or no reason (including if, in our opinion, you have violated any provision of these Terms of Service), and without obligation or liability to you. If that occurs, (a) you will remain liable for all amounts due hereunder, (b) we may at our sole discretion pay you any amounts we reasonably determine we owe you, and (c) we have no obligation to delete or return to you any Content about or from you and available through the Website, subject to applicable privacy laws as set forth in our Privacy Policy.

Using the Website

Both Advisors and Members use the Services on the Website: “Advisors” provide information to Boost, and Boost in turn creates “Listings” which are provide information about Advisors and offers to provide advice, as facilitated by Boost through the Website. “Members” are looking for the information and advice provided by Advisors. The Services allow Members to connect with Advisors and schedule an “Appointment,” which is a telephone call with an Advisor in connection with and subject to the terms of a Listing.  

An unregistered visitor to the Website may view Listings, but to use the Services you must first register with Boost. Boost only facilitates the Website, the Services, and interaction between Members. 

Listings

Boost creates Listings for Advisors to offer his or her services to Members, and to this end, you (as an Advisor) will provide information regarding the expertise you offer as well as consult on pricing and other financial terms applicable to your offering. Listings will be made publicly available via the Website. Members will be able to schedule an Appointment with you via the Website based upon the information provided in your Listing. You understand and agree that once a Member requests an Appointment, the price quoted under your Listing may not be altered.

As an Advisor, you acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for providing correct and current on-boarding information for Boost to use when creating Listings. You also represent and warrant that your relationship with Boost (i) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties and (ii) will (a) comply with all applicable laws, Tax (meaning any sales taxes, value added taxes (VAT), goods and services taxes (GST) and other similar municipal, provincial, state and federal indirect or other withholding and personal or corporate income taxes) requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to you and (b) not conflict with the rights of third parties. Please note that Boost is not obligated to verify any information or Content in Listings, including (without limitation) compliance with any applicable laws, rules and regulations. “Content” in these Terms of Service means text, graphics, images, music, software (excluding the Application), audio, video, information or other materials. 

Boost reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Listing for any reason, including Listings that Boost, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms of Service, or otherwise harmful to the Website.

The Member-Advisor Relationship

Although Boost is selective in choosing the Advisors with Listing on the Website, and while Boost endeavors to select only qualified Advisors. Boost does not endorse or recommend particular Advisors to members. Boost does not confirm, or attempt to confirm, each Advisor’s identity or his or her credentials. Members should always research the identity and suitability of Advisors when selecting an Advisor and scheduling an Appointment. 

Advisors provide advice based on information provided by Members and in response to a Member’s particular situation. Advisors rely on the completeness and accuracy of information provided by Members. Every Member must evaluate and apply an Advisor’s advice according to that Member’s circumstances. The advice received by a Member is not and will not be deemed to create any legal obligation between any Member, Advisor and/or Boost. Advisors are independent service providers and are not agents or employees of Boost or any Member. Advice to Members is provided “as-is” and “as-available” and neither Boost nor any Advisor make any guarantees or warrant any advice for any reason. Further, each Member agrees not to attempt to impose liability on, or seek any legal remedy from Advisors or from Boost with respect to any actions or omissions arising from or out of any advice, content or other information provided to such Member either during an Appointment or otherwise. 

Appointments and Financial Terms

If you are an Advisor, the performance and financial terms applicable to your relationship with Boost are addressed in your Advisor Agreement. 

All financial transactions with Boost are via its third party provider www.square.com or such other payment methods as may be listed on the Website, in U.S. dollars. Except as otherwise provided herein, Appointment Fees are non-refundable. 

Appointments and Financial Terms for Members 

You (as a Member), not Boost, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed Appointments. If you choose to enter into a transaction with an Advisor by scheduling an Appointment via the Website, these Terms of Service and other terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such Appointment as set out in the Listing may apply. You acknowledge and agree that Boost is not a party to any relationship(s) between you, as a Member, and your Advisors.

If you (as a Member) have a written agreement with an Advisor, it may include your obligation to pay that Advisor for certain equipment, software, or other items needed for your Appointment. Your payment of that obligation must be made directly to the Advisor through any mechanism (for example through Venmo or a similar third-party service), and Boost will not be liable for any such payment(s). 

You agree to pay Boost all fees due in connection with any Appointment. In order to initiate an Appointment, you understand and agree that Boost reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to obtain a pre-authorization of your credit card or charge your credit card a nominal amount, not to exceed one U.S. dollar ($1), in order to verify your credit card. At the end of each Appointment, Boost will process and collect the applicable fees payable in accordance with these Terms of Service and the terms of the Listing. Please note that Boost cannot control any fees that may be charged to a Member by his or her bank related to Boost’s collection of any fees, and Boost disclaims all liability in this regard. 

In connection with your payment, you will be asked to provide customary billing information such as name, billing address and credit card information either to Boost’s third party payment processor. You agree to pay Boost for any consummated Appointments in accordance with these Terms of Service, by one of the methods described by www.square.com. You hereby authorize the collection of such amounts by charging the credit card provided as part of requesting the Appointment, either directly by Boost or indirectly, via a third party online payment processor or by one of the payment methods described on the Website. If you are directed to Boost’s third party payment processor, you may be subject to terms and conditions governing use of that third party’s service and that third party’s personal information collection practices. Please review such terms and conditions and privacy policy before using the services as these may include an option for the third party payment processor to save certain information for future transactions. Once your transaction is complete you will receive a confirmation email summarizing your confirmed Appointment. 

General Financial Terms
