Your Acceptance of Terms
These terms and conditions (“Terms”) are an agreement between you and 3xEquity, LLC. (“3xEquity” or “we”) regarding the services and products provided by 3xEquity, through its website at www.3xequity.com, or otherwise (the “Services”). By using the Services online, including accessing information from the Service, providing data or information to the Services, or by downloading any software or data/information from the Services, you agree to these Terms in full.
Services and Components
Our Services are for use in, among other things, providing tools for use in valuing financial advisor practices, including quick online valuation assessment tools and a detailed online or downloadable benchmark report. Our Service is helpful for use in preliminary planning for sale or succession purposes. However, the valuations our Services estimate for your business are based on limited information, and are not intended to be comprehensive. The actual potential sales value can vary significantly from the valuations calculated using our Services, and 3xEquity cannot be responsible for the actual sales price you select for your business and/or any lost opportunity stemming from such selection.
The Services also include, or may include in the future, creating reports, creating publications, creating newsletters, providing seller listings, interested buyer listings, and financing for purchase of a business. In addition, we are often interested and may be available to consider purchases of financial advisor practices.
The quick online valuation assessment tool (Preliminary Valuation) can be used without providing any identifying information regarding you or your business. However, in order to use our Custom Valuation tool (for generating the benchmark report), you will need to provide identifying information and 3xEquity may charge a price for that aspect of the Services. You will be provided with notice of that charge before it is incurred.
You must be 18 years of age or older to use the Services.
License Grant and Use
You may use our Services accessible from the website at www.3xequity.com, and the benchmark reports generated using the Custom Valuation Tool, provided you adhere to these Terms (including all or any further written policies presented during your use of the Service). Furthermore, to the extent we offer any software for downloading, you are granted, subject to payment of a fee as may be required by 3xEquity, at our discretion, a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable and limited license to use the software or materials for their intended purpose stated above. Any software downloaded from the Service is licensed to you under the conditions listed in these Terms, not sold or transferred to you. You agree that you may not use this Service or any software or materials you download from this Service in any way that conflicts with or violates these Terms or other agreements between you and any third-party.
Users of our Services always have the option to terminate their accounts by sending an email requesting termination to email@example.com. If you wish to terminate your account, you must include the phrase, “terminate my account,” and you must provide your name, email address and phone number in the email. If you properly request termination, we will terminate your access to your account and this will also terminate your ability to submit information to the Services for the Custom Valuation Tool. We will delete your account information from our storage systems upon termination. However, we cannot guarantee that all information submitted by you will be completely deleted.
You promise NOT to use the Services for any of the following purposes or activities:
