The relevant section of the icapital.com website relating to certain investment funds (including their respective sub-funds) (each a “Fund”) managed by Carne Global Fund Managers (Luxembourg) S.A. (together with its affiliates, “Carne” or “we” or “us”) (the “Carne Platform” or the “Site”) is an alternative investment platform operated by Carne and hosted by iCapital Network Technology Solutions, LLC (together with its affiliates and subsidiaries, the “Site Provider”) on behalf of Carne. The Site Provider (including its affiliates) owns (as the case may be), licenses and hosts certain websites, applications and platforms, including the Site.
THESE TERMS GOVERN YOUR USE OF THE SITE INCLUDING ANY FINANCIAL SERVICE THEREON. PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY AS THEY SET FORTH EACH PARTY’S RIGHTS, OBLIGATIONS, AND LIABILITIES, INCLUDING YOUR WAIVER TO A RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
CARNE AND THE SITE PROVIDER RESERVE THE RIGHT TO UPDATE OR SUPPLEMENT THESE TERMS AT ANY TIME BY POSTING AN UPDATED COPY OF THESE TERMS TO THE SITE. BY CONTINUING TO ACCESS AND USE THE SITE AFTER THE POSTING OF AN UPDATED COPY OF THESE TERMS, YOU AGREE TO THE UPDATED TERMS.
Users qualifying as retail investors within the meaning of the Regulation (EU) 2015/760 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2015 on European long-term investment funds (the “ELTIF Regulation”) and who are accessing the Site in relation to a fund subject to the ELTIF Regulation, should also refer to Section 16.
- The Site and Financial Services
1.1 The Site; Eligibility. The Site and each Financial Service offered thereon are offered and available only to individuals who are eighteen (18) years of age or older. By using the Site, you represent and warrant that you are of legal age to form a binding contract with Carne, and the Site Provider and meet all of the foregoing eligibility requirements. If you do not meet all of these requirements, you must not access or use the Site. You are permitted to use the Site only for your internal business or investment purposes, subject to the restrictions herein. Other than as expressly set forth in these Terms, no license, or other rights in or to the Site are granted to you, and all such licenses and rights are hereby expressly reserved to Carne and the Site Provider. Carne and the Site Provider reserve the right, at any time and without notice to you, to modify, add, suspend, delete, or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Site, or any portion thereof, in its sole discretion, and you acknowledge and agree that Carne and the Site Provider will not be liable for any of the foregoing.
1.2 Financial Services. We offer certain Financial Services that provide information on alternative investment funds that are exempt from registration under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended. These Financial Services allow potential and existing investors who are Eligible Investors in relation to such funds (each a “Relevant Fund,” and any such potential and existing investors, “LP Users”), to review information on privately offered funds, to submit subscription application and retrieve subscription documents, and to receive reporting with respect to those investments. These Financial Services further allow general partners or managers of private funds (“GP Users”) and transfer agent or administrator entities, or any other service providers engaged by GP Users or private asset funds (“Transfer Agents”) and such Transfer Agents’ respective authorized users, including, but not limited to, respective directors, officers, agents, principals, members, partners, employees, and stockholders (collectively, “TA Users,” and together with GP Users, LP Users and Transfer Agents, “Users”) to control and/or access the content presented on the Site with respect to funds managed or handled by such Users. Except with respect to funds managed by Carne, the funds described on the Site are not offered or sold through the Site, and investors may not acquire an interest in any such fund through the Site. Any such transaction may only occur between a prospective investor and a privately offered fund separate and apart from the Site. For access and use of the Site and the Financial Services described herein by Transfer Agents and TA Users, the Supplemental Terms set forth in the Transfer Agent Addendum shall apply to such Financial Services and are deemed a part of these Terms and incorporated herein
For the purposes of these Terms, an “Eligible Investor” is an investor that is (a) eligible for an investment in the Relevant Fund under the private placement memorandum, prospectus or offering circular, any supplements thereto, the limited partnership agreement or articles of incorporation (as applicable), subscription agreement and other fund documents of that Relevant Fund, and (b) whose participation in the Relevant Fund (and any marketing, promotion or distribution of Relevant Fund interests to such person) can lawfully be made under the applicable laws of the investor’s jurisdiction and will not subject the Relevant Fund or Carne to or require any Relevant Fund or Carne to make or undertake any additional registration, notification, filing (or similar) obligations in addition to those the Relevant Fund and/or Carne as applicable has made which are valid at the relevant time.
1.3 Role of the Site Provider. Carne has subcontracted parts of the services provided hereunder to the Site Provider, including the development, operation and maintenance of the Site. The Site is an auxiliary communications infrastructure system used for the purposes of storing information on certain privately offered investment funds and is hosted by the Site Provider on behalf of Carne. The Site Provider, on behalf of Carne, provides technical support to Users only and is not authorized or regulated in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or the United Kingdom (“UK”) for the purposes of providing the Site. The Site Provider is not providing any investment service or carrying on any regulated activity for which a license is required in the EEA and/or the UK. Nothing in these Terms shall infer or create a client relationship between a User and the Site Provider. For the avoidance of doubt, to the extent any subscription documentation is uploaded, sent and/or transmitted for purposes of these Terms by means of the Site, such subscription documentation is provided to Carne and not to the Site Provider.

YOU HEREBY AGREE TO FULLY AND COMPLETELY INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS THE PROVIDING PARTIES FOR ANY CLAIMS, HARM, OR DAMAGES THAT MAY ARISE FROM YOUR PROVISION OF USER DATA (INCLUDING PERSONAL INFORMATION THEREIN) TO CARNE OR THE SITE PROVIDER.
