Terms of Service

This document was last updated on October 27, 2016


Welcome to the Align Income Share Funding website Terms and Conditions! We recommend visitors carefully review our Terms and Conditions before using our Sites, Services or Products.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding these Terms and Conditions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at info@helloalign.com.

Align Income Share Funding (“Align”) provides an online platform that allows users to apply for and receive quotes for (collectively the “Service”) income share agreements (“ISAs” or “Products”). If approved, Align will advance funds and, in return, you will agree to make payments to Align. The amounts due to Align may be more, or less, than the amount of the investment. Your investment payment obligations are calculated based on your performance—your income. The higher your income, the higher the monthly payment will be. The lower your income, the lower the monthly payment will be. In certain circumstances, you may not have to make any monthly payments, such as during periods of involuntarily unemployment. If you are approved, the terms of your ISA will be set forth more fully in your ISA.

As used in this Agreement, the words “you” and “your” refer to you, the user of Align’s website, Service or Products, as the party agreeing to these Terms and Conditions. The words “we,” “us,” “our” and any other variation thereof refer to Align. The term “Sites” includes this website currently found at https://www.helloalign.com/ and/or any successor websites and applications that we operate and which link to these Terms and Conditions, pages within each such Site or application, any equivalent mirror, replacement, substitute or backup website or application, and pages that are associated with each such website or application. The use of the word “including” in these Terms and Conditions to refer to specific examples will be construed to mean “including, without limitation” or “including but not limited to” and will not be construed to mean that the examples given are an exclusive list of the topics covered.

These Terms and Conditions constitute a legally binding agreement (this “Agreement”) between you and Align (each a “Party,” and collectively the “Parties”). Please read the Terms and Conditions carefully before using or accessing the Service and/or Products.
