PRECIOUS TIMBER SA TERMS OF SERVICE
Last Revised: June 29, 2018
Welcome to Precious Timber, S.A. Please read these Terms of Service carefully before using the services offered by Precious Timber, S.A. (“Precious Timber”, “us”, “we”). These Terms of Service set forth the terms and conditions of our relationship and for your (“you”, “user”, “Investor”) use of the precioustimber.com website (the “Site”) and the services, features, content, applications, mobile device applications, apps, offered by Precious Timber (collectively, the “Services”).
You understand that by using the Site or Services, you are agreeing to comply with and be bound by the terms and conditions contained herein (“Terms of Service”).
Users of our Services who meet certain financial requirements (“Investors”) may use the Site to learn more about potential investment opportunities, and those who wish to invest in any such opportunities must qualify as Accredited Investors.
About the Services and our Role
Precious Timber provides the Site and the Services for the following purposes: (1) to disseminate information regarding Precious Timber’s investment opportunities in connection with its portfolio of Central and South American agricultural real estate concerns in which Precious Timber either already has an ownership stake or seeks to acquire such investment an ownership stake (the “Projects”); and (2) provide such information to potential Investors seeking investments in such businesses. All information provided in the Site and/or the Services is strictly for informational purposes only. Nothing contained herein shall constitute an offer to sell to or solicitation of an offer to purchase from any Investor in any jurisdiction. Nothing contained herein is intended to aid in or form the sole basis of any investment decision. Each Investor is expected to perform his/her own full due diligence and ask questions, receive answers, and obtain additional information and conduct their own due diligence review concerning a particular investment. Any investment undertaken must comply with all legal requirements in each jurisdiction in which it purchases, offers, or sells securities.
About Certain Securities Matters
The investment opportunities to purchase securities that may be offered only through the Site and/or Services have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933 as amended (the “Securities Act”), based upon the reliance on the exemptions from registration provided under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and Rule 506(c) of Regulation D promulgated thereunder.
You understand that securities (e.g., units, shares, or other equity instruments comprising opportunities that are made known through the Services) sold through private placements are restricted and not publicly traded and are therefore illiquid. Neither the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission nor any state securities commission or other regulatory authority has approved, passed upon or endorsed the merits of any offering on this Site.
To the extent that certain investment summaries and/or overviews made available on or through the Site and/or the Services contain summary information regarding the character of the investment opportunities and/or Projects, as well as their principal business terms, such summaries are intended for informational purposes only and do not purport to be complete, and each is qualified in its entirety by reference to the more detailed discussions contained in the investor document package (including but not limited to a private placement memorandum or other offering circular or prospectus) relating to any such investment opportunity.
All potential Investors are strongly encouraged to consult with professional tax, legal and financial advisors before making any investment or investment decision.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms of Service, in no event shall anything in these Terms of Service be deemed to be a waiver, and Precious Timber will not assert there has been a waiver, that would not be permissible under Section 14 of the Securities Act, Section 29(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or any other applicable provision of federal and state securities laws.
You are Responsible for Reviewing Changes to these Terms of Service
These Terms of Service apply to all users of the Site and the Services.

Nonetheless, you are responsible for checking the Site for possible changes to these Terms and for other important information about the Services.
If you continue to use the Site or Services after any of these changes, your continued use will mean that you have accepted any changes to these Terms of Service.
