The Website, all of the information and materials contained therein, including, without limitation, text, graphics, charts, audio, logos, images, data compilations, icons, code and software, any information generated from the Website, any information derived from the information and materials contained therein (collectively, “Content”), as well as the software used to make the Website available are and shall remain the property of Pretium and its licensors and suppliers, and are protected, without limitation, pursuant to U.S. and foreign copyright, trademark, patent and/or other proprietary rights and laws. You do not acquire any right, title or interest in any Content by virtue of accessing the Website or making use of the Content, and You may not take any action inconsistent with Pretium’s (or any licensor’s or supplier’s) ownership of the Website or Content.
Pretium’s trademarks, service marks, trade names, domain names, trade dress and other proprietary logos and indicia are the property of Pretium (“Pretium Marks”). All other marks are the property of their respective companies. You agree not to use any Pretium Marks. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, any goodwill arising out of Your use of the Pretium Marks shall inure to the benefit of and belong to Pretium. No trademark or service mark license is granted in connection with the right to use Content as set forth herein.

Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, You are permitted to store, display, analyze, reformat and print Content only for Your own internal business uses or as expressly permitted in writing by Pretium. You are not permitted to publish, disclose, transmit, or otherwise reproduce any Content, in whole or in part, in any form outside of Your organization, other than to agents or representatives who are acting on Your behalf and that have agreed in writing to maintain its confidentiality.
4. No Securities Offering or Investment Advice.
The Content on this Website does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities. An offer to sell, or solicitation to buy, any securities will only be made by means of a definitive offering document.. You may not rely on the Website as the basis upon which to make an investment decision. The Website does not purport to be complete on any topic addressed. The information in the Website is provided to You as of the dates indicated and Pretium has no obligation to update any information. By using the Website, you agree to maintain the confidentiality of its information.
There can be no assurance that Pretium’s investment strategies will achieve the objectives or results that are referenced in the Website. Past performance is not indicative of future results. There is no guarantee that any Pretium investment products or future offerings by Pretium will have access to similar types of investments or opportunities to achieve comparable results. An investment with Pretium will be highly speculative, and there can be no assurance that investment objectives will be achieved. Investors must be prepared to bear the risk of a total loss of their investment. An investment with Pretium will be suitable only for certain financially sophisticated investors who meet certain eligibility requirements, have no need for immediate liquidity in their investment and can bear the risk of an investment for an extended period of time. Before deciding to invest, prospective investors should carefully read the applicable offering documents and pay particular attention to the risk factors contained therein. The Website is not intended to provide, and should not be relied upon for, tax, legal, accounting or investment advice.
Pretium’s investment strategies may involve investing in real estate debt, and as such investments with Pretium may be exposed to greater risk than investments in a more diversified investment portfolio.
Certain information contained in the Website constitute “forward-looking statements,” which can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “project,” “seek,” “target,” the negatives thereof, other variations thereon or comparable terminology. Due to various risks and uncertainties, actual events or results of the actual performance of an investment vehicle or strategy may differ materially from those reflected or contemplated in such forward-looking statements. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that estimated returns, targeted returns or projections will be realized or that actual returns or performance results will not materially differ from those included in the Website. Negative returns are possible. Certain assumptions and forward-looking statements may have been made either for modeling purposes, to simplify the Website and/or calculations and Pretium does not represent that any such assumptions or statements will reflect actual future events or that all assumptions have been considered or stated.
The information disclosed in representative transactions reflect specific properties during a particular point in time and there can be no assurance that properties acquired in the future will share similar characteristics. The investment vehicles managed by Pretium will invest in different economic conditions and in different securities than those incorporated in the representative transactions and average actual performance results that are shown. There is no assurance that any investment vehicle managed by Pretium will perform as the representative transactions or average actual performance results indicate.
Content Not to Be Construed as a Solicitation or Recommendation
The Website, including the Content, has been prepared for informational purposes only without regard to any particular user’s or Your customers’ investment objectives, financial situation, or means, and Pretium is not soliciting or recommending that You or Your customers take any action based upon it.

Pretium has not verified such information and does not represent that such information is accurate, current, or complete and it should not be relied upon as such. Information, opinions and estimates provided in the Website are based on matters and information as they exist as of the date such materials were prepared and not as of any future date and will not be updated or otherwise revised to reflect information that is subsequently discovered or available, or for changes in circumstances occurring after the date hereof.
Content Not to be Construed as Advice
Pretium does not provide, and nothing contained on or generated by the Website should be construed to be, business, financial, investment, hedging, trading, legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or any other form of advice, nor should You make the Website the only basis for any investment decisions made by or on behalf of You. To the extent that any information on the Website refers to a particular tax treatment, such treatment depends on the individual circumstances of the investor and may be subject to change.
Pretium Is Not Acting as Your Advisor or Fiduciary
Unless explicitly agreed otherwise in writing, Pretium is not, by virtue of making available to You the Website and the Content, acting as Your advisor or fiduciary. The Website is provided to You solely on the basis that You have the capability to independently evaluate investment risk and will exercise independent judgment in evaluating investment decisions in that Your investment decisions will be based on Your own independent assessment of the opportunities and risks presented by a potential investment, market factors and other investment considerations.
Price and Performance Information
Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any prices provided on the Website are indicative only. Such prices or values may not reflect actual prices or values that would be available in the market at the time provided or at the time You may decide to purchase or sell an interest in a particular investment product. Pretium accepts no responsibility for updating any pricing information.
Past performance is not indicative of future results. The value of investments and the income derived from them may decrease or increase, and investors may not get back the amount originally invested or may lose all of their investment. Other market factors may also affect performance. The Website and the Content should not be used for valuation purposes and should not be relied upon for the maintenance of your books and records or for any tax, accounting, legal or other purposes.
