Refund Policy

The Funding Room Ltd and tfr.staging.wpengine.com is not regulated by the FSA as it is not a commission collecting service, nor does The Funding Room provide any type of advice or recommendations on any of the entrepreneur proposals. As a result, we do not fall within FSA regulations. Each investor is required to attest to being a self accredited “sophisticated investor” which places the responsibility on the investor to understand the risks associated with typical early-stage high risk investments. The Funding Room does not conduct any type of Investment Consulting.
Since thefundingroom.co.uk is offering non-tangible irrevocable goods we do not issue refunds once the order is accomplished and the contact information or product is delivered. As a customer you are responsible for understanding this upon purchasing the service our site.
tfr.staging.wpengine.com (The Funding Room Ltd) is solely a match making service and can offer no guarantee to any entrepreneur or user of the site that any registered user of The Funding Room Ltd will invest in your business proposal posting. We employ stringent credibility checks to our Investor database and each investor must complete an eligibility questionnaire amongst other things.
Although these guidelines are in effect and we do everything possible to enable successful contacts, it is beyond the control of The Funding Room Ltd. to ascertain what may happen once an actual match is made. We caution both parties to proceed with caution, always ensuring that proper due diligence is taken by each party. It is for this reason that this website is strictly a matching/match making service and will under no circumstances be liable for any damages, losses or costs through direct or indirect use of this website.
