Zooky Property Terms and Conditions


Zooky Property provides the platform from which everyone can participate property investment, starting at $100, in real estate property. The terms of use outline below provide guidance to all participants on how the engagement journey will be conducted. At all stages you are advised to seek your own professional guidance and undertake independent due diligence to ensure you are fully informed.

Welcome to Zooky Property

This section explains our terms of use. When you use Zooky Property you’re agreeing to all the rules below. Some of them need to be expressed in legal language, but we’ve done our best to offer you clear and simple explanations—hence the brief summaries in these blue boxes, which are not part of the official legal terms.
By using this website (the “Site”) and services (together with the Site, the “Services”) offered by Zooky Property, and its and their parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, representatives, consultants, employees, officers, and directors—collectively, “Zooky Property,” “we,” or “us”), you’re agreeing to these legally binding rules (the “Terms”). You’re also agreeing to our Privacy Policy and agreeing to follow any other rules on the Site.

We may change these terms from time to time. If we do, we’ll let you know about any material changes, either by notifying you on the Site or by sending you an email. Those from the European Union and the United Kingdom will be notified of material changes at least 15 days before they go into effect. New versions of the terms will never apply retroactively—we’ll tell you the exact date they go into effect. If you keep using Zooky Property products after a change, that means you accept the new terms.

Zooky Property is for your personal, non-commercial use, except as explained below.

About Creating An Account

You must be 18 or over to sign up for a Zooky Property account. You are fully responsible for your account and all the activity on it.

You can browse Zooky Property without registering for an account. But to use some of Zooky Property’s functions, you’ll need to register, choose a username, and set a password. When you do register, the information you give us has to be accurate and complete. Do not impersonate anyone else or choose names that are offensive or that violate anyone’s rights. If you do not follow these rules, we may cancel your account at our complete discretion.

You’re responsible for all the activity on your account, and for keeping your password confidential. If you find out that someone has used your account without your permission, you should report it immediately to support@zooky.ca.

To sign up for an account, you need to be at least 18 years old, or old enough to form a binding contract where you live. If necessary, we may ask you for proof of age and residential address.

Things You Definitely Should Not Do

This section is a list of things you probably already know you should not do — lie, break laws, abuse people, steal data, hack other people’s computers, and so on. Please behave yourself. Do not do this stuff.

Thousands of people use Zooky Property and related products. We expect all of them to behave responsibly and help keep this a nice place. Do not do any of these things on the Site:

  • Don’t break the law. Don’t take any action that infringes or violates other people’s rights, violates the law, or breaches any contract or legal duty you have toward anyone.
  • Don’t lie to people. Don’t post information you know is false, misleading, or inaccurate. Don’t do anything deceptive or fraudulent.
  • Don’t victimize anyone. Don’t do anything threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libelous, tortious, obscene, profane, or invasive of another person’s privacy.
  • Don’t spam. Don’t distribute unsolicited or unauthorized advertising or promotional material, or any junk mail, spam, or chain letters. Don’t run mail lists, listservs, or any kind of auto-responder or spam on or through the Site.
    We also need to make sure that the Site is secure and our systems function properly. So don’t do any of these things—most of which boil down to “don’t mess with our system.”
  • Don’t try to interfere with the proper workings of the Services.
  • Don’t bypass any measures we’ve put in place to secure the Services.
  • Don’t try to damage or get unauthorized access to any system, data, password, or other information, whether it belongs to Zooky Property or another party.
  • Don’t take any action that imposes an unreasonable load on our infrastructure, or on our third-party providers. (We reserve the right to determine what’s reasonable.)
  • Don’t use any kind of software or device (whether it’s manual or automated) to “crawl” or “spider” any part of the Site.
  • Don’t take apart or reverse engineer any aspect of Zooky Property in an effort to access things like source code, underlying ideas, or algorithms.

All the points highlighted in section 3 are not exhaustive but are meant as clear moral and professional guidance. Zooky Property will, at its complete discretion, decide if any of your actions are deemed to be in contravention of the ethos of the company. If so found immediate action will be taken with no recourse from anyone.

How Zooky Property Project Funding Works

This section goes over the details of backing and Zooky Property Projects — things like how money gets collected, whether pledges can be changed or canceled, and how creators can contact investors to provide rewards.

These are the terms that apply when you’re backing a project:

  • Your backing is accepted when you pledge an amount and your payment is accepted, as set out in the project offer memorandum. You’ll provide your payment information when you pledge and payment will be secured by Zooky Property. The exact amount you pledged is the amount Zooky Property will collect.
  • We will reserve the charge on your card or take a bank transfer. Zooky Property and its payment partners may authorize or reserve a charge on your credit card (or whatever payment method you use) for any amount up to the full pledge, at any time between the pledge and the collection of funds.

Zooky Property doesn’t offer refunds.

Our Fees

We will charge a management fee and transactional fee on all projects, in addition to any fees from our payment partners. All our fees will be clearly outlined within the offer memorandum of all Zooky Property Projects.
Creating an account on Zooky Property is free. We collect product management fees outlined on the offer memorandum plus our payment partners collect transaction fees. Our partners’ fees may vary slightly based on your location.

We will not collect any fees without giving you a chance to review and accept them. If our fees ever change, we’ll announce that on our Site. Some funds pledged by backers are collected by payment providers. Each payment provider is its own company, and Zooky Property isn’t responsible for its performance of any third party.

You’re responsible for paying any additional fees or taxes associated with your use of Zooky Property.

Other Websites

If you follow a link to another website, what happens there is between you and them—not us.

Zooky Property may contain links to other websites. (For instance, project pages, user 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 those sites.

Zooky Property partners with other companies for payment processing. When you back or create a project, you’re also agreeing to the payment processor’s terms of service.
