APPLICABLE LAWS

Milk Money allows Entrepreneurs to raise capital and Investors to invest funds in exchange for equity interests in the companies listed on its site. Although there are many different ways to raise capital in exchange for equity, every transaction must comply with federal and state securities laws. Federal securities law requires securities sold in the United States to be registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), unless the sale qualifies for an exemption under the securities laws. Milk Money is a portal for companies to raise money under VSBO. VSBO provides for two different types of offerings ideally suited to emerging and or small businesses:

1. The Intrastate Exemption (the “Intrastate Exemption”), available to Vermont-based businesses and Vermont residents ONLY. This exemption to the registration of securities codified at Section 3(a)(11) and of the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. § 77c(a)(11)), as amended. The safe harbor to Section 3(a)(11) is available under SEC Rule 147 codified at 17 C.F.R. § 230.147 (“Rule 147”).

2. The Interstate Registration rule (the “Interstate Registration” rule), providing for limited registration under 17 C.F.R. § 230.504 (also known as “Rule 504” of Regulation D).

USER QUALIFICATIONS

You must be at least 18 to use the Site.

Investors. Currently, the Service is only available to Vermont residents, who wish to invest under the Intrastate Exemption. Once we commence listing offerings under the Interstate Registration rule, the Service will be available to both Accredited Investors from any state (if they are investing in an offering under the Interstate Registration rule) and non-Accredited Investors who are Vermont residents. Investors agree that prior to investing they will have sufficient knowledge of the investment and will be capable of evaluating the risks of such investment either alone or with a representative.

OFFERINGS MADE UNDER THE INTRASTATE EXEMPTION ON THE SITE ARE LIMITED TO PERSONS WHO REPRESENT AND CONFIRM THAT THEY ARE RESIDENTS OF THE STATE OF VERMONT. Investors will be required to verify their residency information, and may be required to verify their income eligibility, depending on the type of offering under VSBO and the amount they wish to invest. Investors who are not residents of Vermont will not be able to view or participate in offerings made under the Intrastate Exemption.

Entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs’ offerings must meet the VSBO rule and federal securities laws in order for them to lawfully use the Site to raise capital. In addition, to raise capital under the Intrastate Exemption, the Entrepreneur’s company must be organized in the State of Vermont, registered with the Vermont Secretary of State and carry out a significant portion of its business in Vermont.

Entrepreneurs may also be referred to as “Issuers”. Under state and federal securities laws, every Issuer is solely responsible for ensuring that all aspects of its securities offering comply with the applicable securities laws, regulations and rules, including without limitation, its use of the Site to offer and sell securities, the determination of whether an Investor is a Vermont resident and whether an Investor is an Accredited Investor and whether any investment complies with the relevant securities laws. In addition, each Entrepreneur is responsible for ensuring that any information it posts on the Site is complete, accurate, and not misleading. All Entrepreneurs utilizing the site agree that they (and not the Site) are responsible for verifying whether a User is qualified to make the investment prior to accepting subscriptions. Entrepreneurs may not rely on the Site’s designation of an Investor as a Vermont resident or an Accredited Investor as sufficient to meet its obligations under VSBO. Investors are strongly encouraged to contact each Entrepreneur directly to discuss any questions regarding a specific offering or business information. Once an offering has commenced, the Entrepreneur agrees that it will not change the terms of the offering.

Users of the Site acknowledge that Milk Money is not liable to and will not verify or investigate the accuracy and completeness of the offering material and other information posted on the Site. Users understand and agree that other parties are relying on the statements made herein and that any willfully false statements are sufficient cause for removal from the Site, rejection of status as an Investor or Entrepreneur, and any other legal causes of action.

You represent and warrant that if you are an individual, you are of legal age to form a binding contract, and that all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful. Milk Money may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer the Service to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time. This provision is void where prohibited by law and the right to access the Service is revoked in such jurisdictions. If you are using the Site on behalf of any entity, such as an employer or a company you work for or control, you represent and warrant that you are have the legal authority to bind that entity to these Terms of Use.

SECURITIES PRODUCTS
Potential investment listings on this Site are suitable for investors who are familiar with and willing to accept the high risk associated with private investments. Securities offered under the VSBO are not publicly traded and, therefore, are less liquid, and minimum holding periods may apply.

IN MAKING AN INVESTMENT DECISION, INVESTORS MUST RELY ON THEIR OWN EXAMINATION OF THE ISSUER AND THE TERMS OF THE OFFERING, INCLUDING THE MERITS AND RISKS INVOLVED. THESE SECURITIES HAVE NOT BEEN RECOMMENDED BY ANY FEDERAL OR STATE SECURITIES COMMISSION OR DIVISION OR OTHER REGULATORY AUTHORITY. FURTHERMORE, THE FOREGOING AUTHORITIES HAVE NOT CONFIRMED THE ACCURACY OR DETERMINED THE ADEQUACY OF THIS DOCUMENT. THESE SECURITIES ARE SUBJECT TO RESTRICTIONS ON TRANSFERABILITY AND RESALE AND MAY NOT BE TRANSFERRED OR RESOLD EXCEPT AS PERMITTED BY LAW, PURSUANT TO REGISTRATION OR EXEMPTION THEREFROM. INVESTORS SHOULD BE AWARE THAT THEY WILL BE REQUIRED TO BEAR THE FINANCIAL RISKS OF THIS INVESTMENT FOR AN INDEFINITE PERIOD OF TIME.

Investment offerings on Milk Money will target investments for businesses or properties that are situated in the State of Vermont that vary in size, scope, term and return profiles and therefore each individual potential investment may contain more or less inherent risk. Investing in private placements requires high-risk tolerance, low liquidity concerns, and long-term commitments. Investors must be able to afford to lose their entire investment. The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise. Past performance is not a guarantee of future performance. The contents of this Site do not constitute financial, legal, or tax advice. Investors are solely responsible for conducting any legal, accounting or due diligence review. You should obtain investment and tax advice from your advisers before deciding to invest. Investment products are not FDIC insured, may lose value, and there is no bank guarantee. None of the information contained in the publicly available portions of the Site constitutes a recommendation, solicitation or offer to buy or sell any securities, options or other financial instruments or other assets, or provide any investment advice or service. The information contained in the Site has been prepared without reference to any particular User’s investment requirements or financial situation. The information and services provided on the Site are not provided to, and may not be used by, any person or entity in any jurisdiction where the provision or use thereof would be contrary to applicable laws, rules or regulations of any governmental authority or where Milk Money is not authorized to provide such information or services. By definition, the products and services described in the Site are not available in all jurisdictions or to all clients.

OUR FEES
Entrepreneurs are charged a flat fee in connection with the administration of each offering. We may charge an administrative fee as part of an investment. If we do this, it will be clear in the offering documents that a portion of an offering will go towards our administrative fees. We will not collect any fees without giving you a chance to review and accept them. If our fees change, we will announce that on the Site.

HOW FUNDING WORKS
As an Investor, under VSBO, any money you invest in an offering will be set aside until the “minimum offering amount” is reached. The minimum offering amount cannot be less than twenty-five percent of the maximum offering amount that is described in the offering document. We may reserve the right to require the minimum offering amount to be up to fifty percent of the maximum offering amount, in our sole discretion. All investor funds must be returned to investors if the Entrepreneur is unable to raise the minimum offering amount during the initial twelve-month period from the effective date of the offering or the minimum offering amount is not otherwise received by the depository by the expiration of said period. An Investor may cancel their investment prior to the minimum offering amount having been reached.

COPYRIGHT POLICY
We comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “DMCA”). The Digital Millennium Copyright Act lays out a system of legal requirements for dealing with allegations of copyright infringement. We respond to notices of alleged infringement if they comply with the law and the requirements in this section. We reserve the right to delete or disable content alleged to be infringing, and to terminate accounts for repeat infringers (We do this when appropriate and at our sole discretion).

Milk Money has adopted a general policy regarding copyright in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998, as may be amended. Milk Money removes material that is the subject of a compliant DMCA takedown notice. Section 512 of the DMCA provides the rules for reporting copyright infringement and for filing a counter-notification.

This section explains how to: (i) report an alleged violation if you feel that your copyright is being infringed; (ii) How to submit a counter-notification if your project was the subject of a takedown notice, (iii) learn what a takedown notice is if you’ve invested in a project that was the subject of one. Milk Money has adopted a policy of, in appropriate circumstances, terminating user accounts that are repeat infringers of the intellectual property rights of others. Milk Money also may terminate user accounts based on even a single infringement.

What happens if I receive a DMCA notification about my project?
If Milk Money receives a DMCA notice about your project, our policy is to remove the infringing material or disable access to your project until the dispute is resolved or the DMCA process is complete. You will receive an email from Milk Money attaching the alleged copyright owner's notice and providing instructions for filing a counter-notification. Milk Money will process DMCA notifications and counter-notifications that it receives, but we cannot adjudicate these disputes.

How do I file a counter-notification to dispute the claims?
If you receive a DMCA notification and believe that your work has been removed or disabled by mistake or because of misidentification, you can submit a counter-notification to Milk Money's copyright agent by emailing us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Your counter-notification email must contain the following information, which must be submitted in English (please confirm these requirements with your legal counsel or see the U.S. Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. §512(g)(3) for more information):

P.O. Box 81
Charlotte, VT 05445

Under the Copyright Act, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability.

What happens after I submit a counter-notification?
After Milk Money receives your counter-notification, we'll forward it to the copyright owner. If we do not receive a notice within 10 business days after forwarding the counter-notification that the owner has filed an action seeking a court order to prevent further infringement, Milk Money may reinstate the project at issue. Access to your project or to the infringing material will remain disabled after we receive your counter-notification until the dispute is resolved or until 10 business days have passed without notification that the owner has filed an action seeking a court order. During this time, you will still have the option to message your backers, edit your project, or cancel your project.

Will anyone see my DMCA notification or counter-notification?
Milk Money is committed to transparency in disabling access to user’s content. We may publish a copy of each DMCA notification and counter-notification. All personally identifying information will be removed from notifications and counter-notifications before they are published. Additionally, Milk Money reserves the right to forward all materials received to the opposing party in the DMCA dispute.

What happens to my investment if the project I have invested in is subject to a copyright dispute?

If a project you’ve invested in becomes the subject of a copyright dispute and Milk Money removes part or all of the project from public view, you’ll get an email that explains the status and next steps. Any material that becomes subject to a copyright dispute will be removed until the dispute is resolved or the DMCA process is complete. If a project or any of its contents are removed because of a dispute, you'll still be able to manage your investment by going to the project page. If we aren't able to re-post the project within 30 days, we will cancel it, all investment authorizations will expire, Investors will have their funds returned, and the project will be permanently unavailable. If, on the other hand, the dispute is resolved or the DMCA process resolves within 30 days, the project will be restored to public view. We’ll update you by email if any of these steps are taken.

If you’d like to submit a claim of copyright infringement, our designated agent for notice of alleged copyright infringement is:
