Terms of Service

    1. Welcome to the 7x Beta platform.  7xUSA.com is a unique social platform designed to engage the public in supporting entrepreneurs and innovators (Startups). The platform also provides Startups with tools they can use to build and grow their business and/or engage in competition where they vie for the support of fans whom we identify as Virtual Venture Capitalists (vVCs) and revenue from commercial customers by selling their products and services. If selected, Startups can compete in head-to-head contests where Startups and vVCs can earn and enjoy benefits, including prize money, and exposure based on their abilities.

Its web address is 7xUSA.com, referred to hereinafter as the “Site”). 7x Corp also provides a related web app—which includes all of the text, images, audio, code, and other material necessary to participate in contests and related services collectively referred to hereinafter as the “Content.” Participation is limited to qualified adult (18 years old or older) legal residents of the United States who will be contracting with 7x Corp.  See paragraph III, C, below, for more qualifications to be a vVC.

 V. HOW THE SITE WORKS

  1. GENERAL PROVISIONS

First of all, this Site is designed as a novel way to capitalize startup enterprises without the issuance of securities of any kind.  Startups may take their prize money and utilize it as operating capital.

At the time of registration for online account access, you must provide a valid email address and supply a Username and Password to be used in conjunction with your account. You may not use a Username that 7x in its sole discretion deems offensive. Many portions of the Service require registration for access (the “Restricted Areas”). You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of Password, and are fully responsible for all uses of your Username and Password, whether by you or others.

You agree to (a) never to use the same password for the Service that you use or have ever used outside of the Service; (b) keep your Username and Password confidential and not share them with anyone else; (c) immediately notify 7x of any unauthorized use of your Username and Password or account or any other breach of security; and (d) use only your Username and Password to access the Service’s Restricted Areas.  7x cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section.

You acknowledge and agree that 7x is authorized to act on instructions received through the use of your Username and Password, and that  7x may, but is not obligated to, deny access or block any transaction made through the use of your Username and Password without prior notice if we believe your Username and Password are being used by someone other than you, or for any other reason.

As a result of your registration for the Service, you may receive certain commercial communications from  7x. You understand and agree that these communications are part of your registration, and that, to the extent required by law, you may opt-out of receiving these communications at any time by either using the unsubscribe functionality or sending an email to info@7xusa.com  Following such an opt-out, we may still communicate with you via email to the extent permitted by applicable law.

 7x also reserves the right to cancel contests, at our sole discretion, without any restrictions. 

7x, in its sole discretion, may disqualify you from a contest or the entire Service, refuse to prizes and require the return of any prizes, or suspend, limit, or terminate your account if you engage in conduct 7x deems, in its sole discretion, to be improper, unfair, fraudulent or otherwise adverse to the operation of the Service or in any way detrimental to other users. Improper conduct includes, but is not limited to falsifying personal information, including payment information, required to use the Service or claim a prize; violating eligible payment method terms, including the terms of any cash rewards payment card, violating any of these rules, accumulating points or prizes through unauthorized methods such as unauthorized scripts or other automated means; tampering with the administration of the Service or trying to in any way tamper with the computer programs associated with the Service; obtaining other entrants’ information and spamming other entrants; and abusing the Service in any way, or otherwise violating these Terms of Use. You acknowledge that the forfeiture and/or return of any prize shall in no way prevent  7x from informing the relevant authorities, and/or pursuing criminal or civil proceedings in connection with such conduct.  

7x has also created a new type of venture capitalist that we call a “virtual venture capitalist®,” also known as a vVC.  Such a person may participate in games of skill and insight and win up to 7x their entry fee depending on the number of entries in a particular game.  A minimum of 48 participants is required for a game.  Each game is designed so that close to 20% of all participants will win from 1.2x to 7x their entry fees.  This is a lot like real venture capitalists who put money into an enterprise hoping to earn a profit on their investment.  However, participation in the game is just that and there is no stock or promissory notes or any type of security exchanged between the vVC and the enterprise.

Also on this site is a marketplace where anyone can buy and sell innovative products and services offered by Startups.  The Site will collect payments made by customers and place them into a savings account for each startup.  That savings account may be used as collateral in obtaining loans for operating expenses from participating financial institutions.  This will assist startups in generating valuable credit ratings and credentials for future growth.  Monies in the savings accounts will be made available to the startup upon receipt of proof that the product or service has been delivered to the customer.

Also on this site is a social media platform that allows users to interact in order to support and enhance the development of starups and their respective innovations, projects and services.

Also on this site is a directory of Preferred Vendors. Upon approval, Preferred vendors enter into a referral agreement with 7x to provide products or services to the startup community.

Also on this site is 7xU which is a collection of instructional and motivational content intented to provide additional value to users on the platform.

If you follow a link to another website, what happens there is between you and them—not us. 7x may contain links to other websites. (For instance, project pages, user profiles, preferred Vendor profiles and comments may link to other sites.) When you access third-party websites, you do so at your own risk. We don’t control or endorse or vouch for those sites. 

  • 2. USING THE SITE AS A STARTUP
      • A) Your enterprise is a crucial part of the success of 7x and even more importantly of the well-being and success of our country and our world.
      • B) Your job as a startup is to create, operate, and manage the best new enterprise that you can.  In 7x games, if chosen, you will compete head-to-head with another startup in one of seven categories which are critical for the success of a company:  1) the pitch; 2) leadership; 3) branding; 4) social media and marketing; 5) sales and operations; 6) team makeup; and 7) impact on society and the world.  Remember these and plan accordingly. 
      • C) When you register as a startup you are assigned a team. Your progress in the 7x games will be largely determined by your teams assessment of your ability to perform in a competitive environment with the objective to win.
      • D) When you are chosen by vVC’s in their  weekly games, your enterprise will receive a portion of the game entry fee paid by each vVC that has picked your enterprise for its roster.  The higher you rank on the particular vVC’s roster of enterprises, the larger will be your share of the entry fee.  While the entry fee might be a nominal amount such as $10 or $20.  Your success is measured by the number of vVCs that you can attract and how high they rank you on their rosters.  Here are the percentages of that portion of the vVC’s entry fee set aside for startups that you will receive depending on the rank of your startup on the roster:  1st – 21.3%; 2nd – 19%; 3rd – 16.7%; 4th – 14.3%; 5th – 12%; 6th – 9.7%; and 7th – 7%.
      • E) There will be weekly games during  the regular season, Startups who are affiliated with teams that make it to the playoffs will have the opportunity to receive additional funding and exposure throughout the playoffs. The playoffs will culminate with the top 7 Startups for the season being crowned as champion startups and sharing the seasonal purse. The seasonal purse will be allocated accordingly:
        • First Place  20%
        • Second Place 18%
        • Third Place 16%
        • Fourth Place 13%
        • Fifth Place 12%
        • Sixth Place 11%
        • Seventh Place 10%
      • F) If you participate in the playoffs you will be required to enter a contractual agreement to have a 3rd party conduct a pre Playoff valuation of your company. Based on the pre-playoff valuation you will agree to assign 7x and your team affiliate, respectively .7% equity in your company for each week you remain in the playoffs. If you make it to the final week of the playoffs the amount of equity assigned to 7x and your Team Affilaite will total of 10.8% – 4.9% respectively.  
      • G) You may also market your products and services in the 7x marketplace.  Even items that are in the process of development may be marketed.  Money paid by customers will be placed in an individual savings account for your enterprise.  Upon proof of shipment of the product or service, the money will be made available for your company to use.  The money can be allowed to accumulate in the savings account and then used as collateral for loans from participating financial institutions that have agreed to partner with 7xcorp to help startups like you be successful.  This will allow you to build up good credit credentials and a good credit rating that will be invaluable in the future.
    • 3. USING SITE AS VIRTUAL VENTURE CAPITALIST (vVC)
      • By opening a vVC account and entering a game by paying your entry fee you are representing and warranting that:
      • you are of 18 years of age;
      • you are a citizen or legal resident of the United States of America and that you have a current address in the United States of America;
      • at the time of deposit or game entry, you are physically located in the United States of America in a jurisdiction in which allows participation in 7x contests.
      • you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties;
      • you will abide at all times by these Terms of Use and any other agreements between you and 7x regarding your use of the Site or participation in its contests;
      • you are not subject to backup withholding tax because: (a) you are exempt from backup withholding, or (b) you have not been notified by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that you are subject to backup withholding as a result of a failure to report all interest or dividends, or (c) the IRS has notified you that you are no longer subject to backup withholding.
      • When entering any contest that awards prizes, you are not an employee or operator of 7x.
      • You do not, by virtue of affiliation with 7x have access to the site’s pre-release non-public confidential data about contest-related information.
      • Your job will be to enter games by paying an entry fee (remember this fee is NOT AN INVESTMENT it only gets you in the game) and then creating a roster of your top seven startups chosen from the startups who have registered on the Site, listing them in the order that you believe they will rank at the end of the game.
      • Your entry fee will be used in five ways: 32% will be paid directly to the startups that you put on your roster.  The percentage of that amount is determined by the rank order they appear on your roster as follows:   1st – 21.3%; 2nd – 19%; 3rd – 16.7%; 4th – 14.3%; 5th – 12%; 6th – 9.7%; and 7th – 7%.
        • 10% will be allocated to the season purse that will be paid out to the top 7 Startups  for the season.
        • 40% will be used as prize money for the top 20% of vVCs participating  in the vVC game.
        • The top 20% (or as close to that number as possible depending on the number of participants in each game) of vVCs will be awarded prizes ranging from 1.2x to 7x, with x equal to the amount of the entry fee paid.  vVCs will be ranked according to 1) ability to identify high-performing startups; 2) ability to use your social marketing skills to recruit others to participate in supporting the startups of your choice; and 3) the speed with which you identify your high performing startups.  Your roster will be timestamped.  The timestamps will be used as tiebreakers in the event more than one vVC has the same numerical score at the end of the game.
        • 8% will be will be allocated to the vVC season purse that will be paid out to the top 7 vVC for the season
        • 10% will be used by 7x Corp to produce, market, and conduct the games
    • 4. USING THE SITE AS A COMMERCIAL CUSTOMER
      • Anyone over 18 years of age may visit the 7x marketplace and view the products and services marketed there upon the invitation of either a vVC or Startup.  Some of the items there, will be readily available and some will be in development. To make a purchase you will have to create a 7x account.
      • Your purchase money will be kept by 7x in a savings account for the seller.  The seller will not be granted access to your money until the item purchased has been sent to you.  It is possible that items currently under development will never become commercially available for several reasons.  In that case, your money will be refunded and you will receive an explanation from the startup why the product is unavailable or delayed.  7x makes no warranties or guarantees relative to any product or service marketed in its marketplace.  Any warranty or guaranty, if any, comes from the startup and not from 7x Corp or any of its affiliates.
  • VI. INDEMNIFICATION

    • H) NO CLASS ACTION SUITS:  All claims just be arbitrated on an individual basis.
    • I) CONFIDENTIALITY:  All aspects of the arbitration proceeding shall be confidential.  However, this does not prevent a party from seeking enforcement of an award by a court of competent jurisdiction.
  •   X. TERMS AND TERMINATION
    • A) You can delete your account at any time, but doing so won’t automatically remove some content you’ve already posted.

All provisions of this agreement survive termination of an account, including our rights regarding any content you’ve already submitted to the Site. (For instance, if you’ve launched a project, deleting your account will not automatically remove the project from the Site.) You can contact us at support@7xUSA.com for additional information or to request project page deletion (this is not available in all circumstances).
    • C) To operate, we need to be able to maintain control over what happens on our website. So in this section, we reserve the right to make decisions to protect the health and integrity of our system. We don’t take these powers lightly, and we only use them when we have to. 
    • D) To protect the health and integrity of our system and to help ensure that startups and purchasers enjoy a safe and secure environment, 7x reserves these rights:
    • E) We can make changes to the 7x Site and Services without notice or liability.
    • F) We have the right to decide who’s eligible to use 7x. We may in limited circumstances impose restrictions or limitations on accounts, or – for particularly significant or repeated violations of our Terms or any other rules on the Site, like our Community Guidelines  – we may cancel accounts or decline to offer our Services. (Especially if you’re abusing them.) We can change our eligibility criteria at any time. If these things are prohibited by law where you live, then we revoke your right to use 7x in that jurisdiction.
    • G) We have the right to cancel any entry fee to any contest , at any time and for any reason.

It is our general policy not to comment on the reasons for any such action. However, if we impose restrictions on or limit a verified account holder’s access to any of our Services or if we intend to cancel a verified account, we will let the account holder know the reasons for this action and how they can remedy any issues (where appropriate) unless we’re prohibited from doing so by law or in the interest of safety. For account cancellations, we will let the account holder know the reasons for this action at least 30 days in advance unless we’re canceling for reasons related to illicit or inappropriate content, the safety of a good or service, counterfeiting, fraud, malware, spam, data breaches, other cybersecurity risks, or the suitability of a good or service for minors.

  • XI. GENERAL
    • A) These are our official terms and our rules for how things work. You can verify any confusing or conflicting information you see elsewhere by referencing what we’ve explained on this page. 
    • B) These Terms and the other material referenced in them are the entire agreement between you and 7x concerning the Services. They supersede all other communications and proposals (whether oral, written, or electronic) between you and 7x concerning the Services and govern our future relationship. If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid under the law, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms otherwise will remain in full force and effect and enforceable. The failure of either you or 7x to exercise any right provided for in these Terms in any way won’t be deemed a waiver of any other rights. 
    • C) These Terms are personal to you. You can’t assign them, transfer them, or sublicense them unless you get 7x’s prior written consent. 7x has the right to assign, transfer, or delegate any of its rights and obligations under these Terms without your consent. 7x will provide you notice via email, written notice, or by conspicuously posting the notice on our Site. 
    • D) If 7x determines that you do not meet the eligibility requirements, then you are not authorized to use the Service.   7x may require you to provide proof that you are eligible to participate according to this section before receiving a prize. This includes requesting that you fill out an affidavit of eligibility or other verification information. If  7x otherwise determines that you do not meet the eligibility requirements of this section, in addition to any rights that  7x may have in law or equity,  7x reserves the right to terminate your account, withhold or revoke the awarding of any prizes associated with your account or limit your ability to withdraw. In such a situation,  7x may pay out any withheld or revoked prizes to the other entrants in the relevant contest in a manner consistent with the prize structure of the contest, to be precisely determined by  7x in its sole discretion.  7x also reserves the right to withhold revoked prizes to use in furtherance of its fraud prevention or anti-money laundering efforts.  7x employees may use the Service to test the user experience, but may not withdraw money or prizes except when playing in a private league. Relatives of  7x employees with whom they share a household are not eligible to participate in paid contests unless they are private contests with other  7x employees or household members.  7x consultants or promoters of the Service may play in contests without such limitation, but only if (i) their arrangement with  7x does not permit them to have any access to non-public Service data or any other data not made available to all players on the Service and (ii) they do not receive any other advantages in their play on the Service.
    • E) Start-ups, judges, coaches, team management, and other team support personnel and team owners may not participate in any 7x contests with which they are associated. Team owners, individuals who through an ownership interest or game-related employment can influence the gameplay are likewise ineligible. 
    • F) 7x, in its sole discretion, may disqualify you from a contest or the entire Service, refuse to award vVC points or prizes and require the return of any prizes, or suspend, limit, or terminate your account if you engage in conduct  7x deems, in its sole discretion, to be improper, unfair, fraudulent or otherwise adverse to the operation of the Service or in any way detrimental to other users. Improper conduct includes, but is not limited to falsifying personal information, including payment information, required to use the Service or claim a prize; violating eligible payment method terms, including the terms of any cash rewards payment card, violating any of these rules, accumulating points or prizes through unauthorized methods such as unauthorized scripts or other automated means; tampering with the administration of the Service or trying to in any way tamper with the computer programs associated with the Service; obtaining other entrants’ information and spamming other entrants; and abusing the Service in any way, or otherwise violating these Terms of Use. You acknowledge that the forfeiture and/or return of any prize shall in no way prevent  7x from informing the relevant authorities, and/or pursuing criminal or civil proceedings in connection with such conduct.
