Once you become a full member of SC, upon logging onto the platform you will be able to access the full "Invest" (investment) section of the website, but a standard, general overview version of the "Invest" section will appear if you are not a full member of SC, meaning if you have a standard, general account with SC (standard user account), then this version of your account will only contain very general information, limited access and functionality to the platform/website, and will not permit you to see the investment section of the website or allow you to make an investment. When you access the Invest section as a full member of SC, you will be able to see a investment summary information page outlining some details about the businesses that are currently seeking finance through , we refer to this information as “Private Members Page” or the "Pitch Investment Summary" which is accessible by registered and qualified members ONLY. You can browse the Pitch Summary in the order in which they are presented or you may search the summary pitches with the search tool provided on the platform.
You can click through any pitch summary to see additional information about the business, which we refer to as a "Pitch Detail" (a pitch summary and detailed pitch together are a “business pitch"). A detailed pitch includes the answers that the business has provided in response to a set of questions and other requested files like business plans, financial forecasts, slide decks, articles of association, video pitch and any shareholder agreements we asked the CrowdInvestee who created the pitch to provide. The pitch will also include information on how much finance the business is seeking, in the case of Investments, what percentage of its equity it is offering in exchange for that capital and how long the pitch will stay active (meaning for how long investment will be accepted). The detailed pitch is the information upon which you will make an investment decision with respect to the business.
Our Review and Approval.
We have reviewed every Pitch that you see on the website. We have made every effort to check that the information is "fair, clear and not misleading". You should note that in the case of ‘factual statements’ made by the Pitcher, we do review the information and any evidence provided by the business but while we take reasonable care in our review we do not audit it or endorse it as we are unable to identify its authenticity, which means that we will not be liable if we fail to identify forged or altered evidence or information or deliberately misleading or inaccurate statements made by the Pitcher (other than by reason of our gross negligence), for this reason you shall be solely responsible to perform your own due diligence on the Pitcher, or get active and join the SC Crowd Diligence (CD), which we provide on our website for you to perform your own Crowd Diligence (CD) on the Pitcher. You should further note that in the case of aspirational statements, or statements of opinions or belief that the entrepreneurs who are Pitching on our platform are likely to express very high ambitions, we may approve such statements that convey those ambitions even where we do not have a view on whether it is likely that they will fully achieved it, and approval to pitch does not convey a belief on our part that it is likely that they will fully achieve such ambition.
No Reliance on Other Information and No Recommendations.
Our approval of a pitch, does NOT mean that we are recommending that you make an investment, donation, contribution in the businesses or entrepreneurs, or that we believe the businesses or entrepreneurs are likely to be successful or that we take any responsibility, or will in any way be liable to you if the businesses or entrepreneurs are not successful. The investment and donation decisions with respect to any investment, donations and contributions made through the website is yours and yours alone. Other than what is contained in the Pitch, we have not reviewed or approved any information about the businesses or the individuals, including but not limited to any information on websites that are linked to the Pitch such as - the business website or social media profiles of entrepreneurs or of the business itself and you may not rely on any such information in making your investment decision.
Confidentiality and Appropriate Use of Pitches.
Pitches are presented on the platform in order for you to make your investment, donation and contribution decisions and not for any other purpose. With respect to information contained in the Pitch summary you are not legally required to keep the information confidential, but you may not use it in any way to compete with or otherwise impede the success of the relevant business, and if you do so we may bring an action against you for any damage you have caused to our reputation or the Pitches (businesses).
No Request for Deletion.

Balance will show in the "My Financials" section of the website (in your SC account) and will be ready to be returned back to you if the pitch you donated or invested in fails to reach its funding goal, but funds will only return back to the account you originally paid from.
