A cookie typically contains the name of the domain (internet location) from which the cookie originated, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e., when it expires) and a randomly generated unique number or similar identifier.

We will only keep your personal information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this privacy policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax, accounting or other legal requirements). No purpose in this policy will require us keeping your personal information for longer than 90 days past the termination of the user's account.

We also retain your information for internal analysis purposes. Information retained for such purposes is generally kept for a shorter period of time, except when this data is used to strengthen the security or to improve the functionality of our services, or we are legally obligated to retain this data for longer time periods.

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

7. How Do We Keep Your Information Safe?

However, please also remember that we cannot guarantee that the internet itself is 100% secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, transmission of personal information to and from our Sites is at your own risk. You should only access the services within a secure environment.

No uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of this Privacy Policy.

United States
Attention: Ark7 Legal

© 2022 Ark7 Inc.
Accredited business

Ark7 Inc. ("Ark7") operates the www.ark7.com website (the “Site”) and the mobile application (the “App”). Ark7 serves as manager to Ark7 Properties LLC and Ark7 Properties Plus LLC, and such companies shall be collectively referred to herein as “Ark7 Properties”. Neither Ark7 nor Ark7 Properties is a broker-dealer or an investment advisor. Dalmore Group LLC, a registered broker-dealer and member FINRA and SIPC, located at 525 Green Place, Woodmere, NY 11598, is the broker-dealer of record for Ark7, an issuer direct offering. Information on all FINRA-registered broker-dealers can be found on FINRA’s BrokerCheck.

Investing in securities involves risks, and there is always the potential of losing money when you invest in securities. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investments such as those on the Ark7 platform are speculative and involve substantial risks to consider before investing, outlined in the respective offering materials and including, but not limited to, illiquidity, lack of diversification, and complete loss of capital. An investment in an offering constitutes only an investment in a particular series and not in Ark7 or any of the underlying asset(s). Investors should carefully review the risks located in the respective offering materials for a more comprehensive discussion of risks.

You should speak with your financial advisor, accountant and/or attorney when evaluating any offering. Neither Ark7 nor Dalmore makes any recommendations or provides advice about investments, and no communication, through the Site, the App, or in any other medium, should be construed as a recommendation for any security offered on or off this investment platform. The Site and/or the App may make forward-looking statements. You should not rely on these statements but should carefully evaluate the offering materials in assessing any investment opportunity, including the complete set of risk factors that are provided as part of the offering circular for your consideration. The applicable offering circular for Ark7 is available here.

From time to time, Ark7 will seek to qualify additional series offerings of securities under regulation A. For offerings that have not yet been qualified, no money or other consideration is being solicited and, if sent in response, will not be accepted. No offer to buy securities of a particular offering can be accepted, and no part of the purchase price can be received, until an offering statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") relating to that series has been qualified by the SEC. Any such offer may be withdrawn or revoked, without obligation or commitment of any kind, at any time before notice of acceptance given after the date of qualification by the SEC. An indication of interest involves no obligation or commitment of any kind.

Investment overviews contained on the Site and/or the App contain summaries of the purpose and the principal business terms of the investment opportunities. 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 applicable offering circular filed with the SEC. Ark7 does not offer refunds after an investment has been made. Please review the relevant offering materials and subscription documentation for more information.
