Submissions to Build Collective
We (Build Collective) receive a large number of business plans and related materials. Many of these plans and materials are, in fact, similar, which means we cannot sign off on non-disclosure agreements or agree to obligations of confidentiality or non-use regarding information shared with us in any way. If you do share any information with us, you agree that Build Collective and any of our agents are free to use all such information without condition or limit.
By submitting any information to Build Collective, you acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for any and all information you share with us, and by doing so warrant that you have the necessary rights to do so. You further agree that neither Build Collective nor anyone associated with us is in any way obligated to invest in any business you are associated with. You acknowledge and agree that nothing on our website constitutes financial advice.
By visiting and/or using our website, you acknowledge and agree as follows:
All materials on our website are provided “as is” and without warranties of any kind, either express or implied.

You agree that any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to your submission of information to Build Collective and/or your use of the website, the Build Collective systems, services, and/or content shall be submitted to final and binding arbitration to be held in Miami, Florida, before a single arbitrator in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association and its Expedited Procedures (except where those rules conflict with this provision, in which case this provision controls). The arbitrator shall be a practicing attorney with at least ten (10) years’ experience in the publishing industry and shall be selected by mutual agreement of the parties or, if the parties cannot agree, then the arbitrator shall be selected by the American Arbitration Association. The proceedings relating to the arbitration, the submissions, pleadings, documents and information provided by the parties in connection with such arbitration, and the findings and decision of the arbitrator, shall be kept confidential, except to the extent necessary to enforce the arbitrator’s decision, and shall be governed by Florida law, except that the Federal Arbitration Act shall apply in regard to interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration. Any court with jurisdiction may enforce this clause and enter judgment on any award.
YOU AGREE THAT ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION BY YOU ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO YOUR SUBMISSION OF INFORMATION TO BUILD COLLECTIVE AND/OR YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE, THE BUILD COLLECTIVE SYSTEMS, INFORMATION, SERVICES AND/OR CONTENT MUST BE FILED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION AROSE.
Our failure to enforce any provision of these submission terms or respond to a breach by you or others shall not constitute a waiver of our right to enforce any other provision of these submission terms as to that breach or any other.
If any provision of these submission terms is invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect, and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision.
