COLLECTIVE FOUNDER TERMS AND CONDITIONS
This Vinetta Project Collective Agreement (the "Agreement"), when signed by the applicant and accepted by This Vinetta Project ("TVP"), constitutes a binding contract between The Vinetta Project and the individual or entity executing the signature page of this Agreement (the "Member"). Membership rights, privileges and obligations commence when Vinetta Project receives membership payment.
This document outlines TVP membership policies and benefits. TVP reserves the right to update and/or amend the contents of this document at any time. This agreement represents a binding contract with TVP for annual membership. TVP will issue an invoice for payment upon receipt of a signed Membership Agreement. Membership becomes effective upon the date signed. Payment is due upon the effective date and must be paid within 30 days.
Some rights and responsibilities vary across member category consistent with the expectations and benefits available to each member category and the fees administered for joining that member category. We reserve the right to be flexible with regards to each membership category’s rights and responsibilities.
TVP’s practice is to make its founder, market leader and sometimes funder member lists public, and as such, TVP reserves the right to publish the names of member companies in TVP and external communications, including publicizing new member Founders and market leaders via social media channels (e.g., Facebook, Twitter). Members, who wish to opt out of these disclosures, and/or make their memberships confidential, may do so by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Confidential Information” means any and all information and material disclosed by the Member to TVP or The Collective members (whether in writing, or in oral, graphic, electronic or any other form) that is marked or identified in writing as confidential or proprietary, or if disclosed orally or in other intangible form or in any form that is not so marked, that is identified as confidential at the time of such disclosure and summarized in writing and transmitted to TVP within thirty (30) days of such disclosure.

Except as set forth below, TVP shall hold all Confidential Information in confidence and shall not disclose any Confidential Information to any third party, other than to its employees, agents, or affiliates who need to know such information and who are bound by obligations of confidentiality with respect to such Confidential Information. TVP shall take the same degree of care that it uses to protect its own confidential and proprietary information of similar nature and importance (but in no event less than reasonable care) to protect the confidentiality and avoid the unauthorized use, disclosure, publication or dissemination of the Confidential Information. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, upon reasonable written notice to the Member, TVP may disclose Confidential Information in response to a valid order by a court or other governmental body or as otherwise required by law.

We encourage our investors to do full due diligence on any of the companies introduced by TVP.
