8. Protection of personal data
9. Additional notices
Not with standing the provisions of the foregoing paragraphs, BrickFunding expressly informs the Users of the financial risks they may incur if they decide to invest through any of the Crowdfunding Platforms to which we provide links. It will be the sole responsibility of the User to act with all due diligence once they access such Crowdfunding Platforms.
BrickFunding does not provide any financial advice, or investment recommendations, to its Users, and is therefore not an Investment Service Company. As a result, BrickFunding is not supervised by the Spanish National Securities Commission (Comisión Nacional del Mercado de Valores) (CNMV).
BrickFunding informs its Users that the compilation of links offered on this Website has not been supervised by the CNMV or the Bank of Spain, and that under no circumstances do such links constitute an information prospectus approved by the CNMV.
BrickFunding informs its Users that, even though many of the platforms linked do indeed have the authorization and supervision of the stock market supervisor of their country of origin, and in many cases, in addition, the authorization is compulsory, it will be the sole responsibility of the User to verify the veracity of the information provided by these platforms and their compliance with prevailing regulations.
BrickFunding does not recommend, promote or participate in any of the Crowdfunding Platforms to which it provides links and, therefore, is not responsible for any possible profits and/or losses the User may have should they decide to invest in any of the products and/or services to which we provide links.
We summarize below, by way of example, some of the risks involved in investing in real estate crowdfunding, whether through the platforms to which we provide links or any other:
- Risk of loss in full or in part of the money invested: all investments involve a risk, including those which seem the safest, and real estate crowdfunding is no exception. The illusion of the dilution of the risk, on being divided among all the participants, is not so, and the investor may lose the money invested in full or in part.
- Risk of not obtaining the profitability expected and/or of not receiving the profitability estimated, which a project offers to be calculated according to the forecasts of its business plan; however, when the time comes to divide up the dividends, these will be calculated depending on the actual results the project has achieved, and this may mean that the profitability is lower than, equal to or high than that forecast, or there may even be no dividends. Past profitability does not guarantee future profitability.
- Risk of dilution: although it is not common in real estate crowdfunding, if there is a new round for capturing capital within a project in which we have already invested, this could cause the dilution of the stake in the company.
- Risk of having no influence in the management of the project: it is common in real estate crowdfunding for the investor not to be able to participate in the development and the management of the real estate project, which will be carried out exclusively by the developer.
- Risk of lack of liquidity of the investment: in general, any investments in real estate crowdfunding are made by acquiring shares from a limited liability company (Sociedad de Responsabilidad Limitada) (S.L.) which will be the owner of the real estate assets, and a partner wishing to sell its stake in such company in advance may have difficulty in finding purchasers for its shares. Moreover, restrictions on the free transfers of shares, and the absence of any secondary market, mean that the investor should consider their investment
