7.2. By using its/his/her blockchain address, the Buyer will be able to claim and receive the Tokens by interacting with the Smart Contract directly on the Polygon blockchain.

7.6. The Buyer expressly acknowledges that the Tokens will not be sent directly by the Seller and may only be received through interactions with the Smart Contract. Therefore, the Buyer understands that it is its/his/her responsibility to claim the Tokens which it/he/she has purchased, and that the loss of the private key (or other equivalent credential) corresponding to the blockchain address mentioned above may impair its/his/her ability to receive the Tokens that it/he/she purchased. The Seller shall not be responsible for the loss incurred by the Buyer in the event of a loss of the private key (or other equivalent credential).

7.7. For the avoidance of doubt, the Seller’s obligation to deliver the Tokens will be materialized by the deployment of the Smart Contract, as long as, by interacting with the Smart Contract, the Buyer is able to claim and receive the exact quantity of Tokens purchased.

Annex

Risk Factors

Risk of loss of access to a Token due to loss of credentials

Until it is distributed to the Buyer, the said Buyer’s Token may be linked to the Seller account. You can only access the Seller account using the credentials selected by the Buyer. The loss of these credentials will result in the loss of the Tokens. Good practices advise Buyers to store their credentials securely in one or more backup locations that are geographically separated from the work location.

Risks Associated with the Polygon blockchain protocol

Tokens are based on the Polygon blockchain protocol. Therefore, any malfunction, unplanned function or unexpected operation of the Polygon blockchain protocol may cause the Platform or Tokens to malfunction or operate in a way that is not expected. The native Polygon blockchain Protocol account unit, may itself lose value in a similar way to Tokens, and also in other ways.

Risks associated with the Buyer’s credentials

Any third party that obtains access to the Buyer’s credentials or private keys may be able to use the Buyer’s Tokens. To minimize this risk, Buyers must protect themselves against people gaining unauthorised access to their electronic devices.

Legal risk and risk of adverse regulatory intervention in one or more jurisdictions 

DLT technologies have been reviewed by various regulatory bodies around the world, including within the European Union.

The operation of the Platform and of Tokens may be impacted by the passing of restrictive laws, the publication of restrictive or negative opinions, the issuing of injunctions by national regulators, the initiation of regulatory actions or investigations, including but not limited to restrictions on the use or ownership of digital tokens such as Tokens, which may prevent or limit the development of the Platform.

Given the lack of digital assets qualifications in most countries, each buyer is strongly advised to carry out a legal and tax analysis concerning the purchase and ownership of Tokens according to the laws applicable to their nationality and place of residence.

Risk of an alternative, unofficial ecosystem

Following presales and development of the original version of the Platform, the official Platform may find itself in competition with these alternatives, unofficial platforms based on Tokens, which could potentially adversely impact the Platform and Tokens.

Risk of a lack of interest in the Platform or distributed applications

There is a possibility that the Platform may not be used by a large number of individuals and other organizations, and that there may be a limited public interest in the creation and development of distributed applications. Such a possible lack of interest could eventually impact on the development of the Platform and, therefore, on the uses or potential value of Tokens.

Risk that the Platform is not developed

The rights associated with Tokens are exclusively limited, in their scope, to the Platform. The value of the Tokens is therefore heavily correlated with the existence of such Platform. Tokens may lose part or all of their value if the Platform is never fully developed.

Risk that the Platform, as developed, does not meet user expectations

The Platform is currently under development and may undergo significant redesign prior to its full launch. For several reasons, not all user expectations concerning the Platform or Tokens’ form and function may be met on the launch date, including changes in design, implementation, and execution of the Platform.

Risk of theft and piracy

Hackers or other malicious or criminal groups or organizations may attempt to interfere with the Platform or the availability of Tokens in several ways including, but not limited to, denial of service attacks, Sybil attacks, mystification, surfing, malware attacks, or consensus-based attacks.

Risk of security weaknesses in the Platform’s core infrastructure software

There is a risk that the Seller team, or other third parties, may intentionally or unintentionally introduce weaknesses or bugs into the core infrastructure elements of the Platform, by interfering with the use of, or causing loss of, Tokens.

Risk of weakness or exploitable breakthrough in the field of cryptography

Advances in cryptography, or technical advances such as the development of quantum computers, may present risks for digital assets and the Platform, which could result in the theft or loss of Tokens.

Risk of the Platform failing to be used or adopted

While Tokens shall not be considered an investment, their value is bound to change over time. This value may be limited if the Platform is not sufficiently used and adopted. In such a case, there could be few or no markets at the Platform launch, which would limit the value of Tokens.

Risk of a tight market for Token

There are currently no exchanges or trading facilities on which Tokens can be traded. If such exchanges or trading facilities do develop, they will probably be relatively new and subject to poorly understood regulatory oversight. They may therefore be more vulnerable to fraud and default than the established and regulated exchanges that exist for other products. Should exchanges or trading facilities that represent a substantial part of the Tokens trading volume be involved in fraud, security failures or other operational problems, the failures of such exchanges or trading facilities may limit the Tokens value or liquidity.

Liquidity Risk

As of the date of this document, the Token is not listed on any digital assets exchange platforms. As a result, there is no assurance that a secondary market will develop and that the holders will be able to sell their Tokens.

Risk of an uninsured loss

Unlike bank accounts or accounts in other regulated financial institutions, funds held through the Seller or Polygon blockchain network are generally uninsured. At present, there are no public or private insurance agents providing Buyers with coverage against a loss of Tokens or a loss of value.

Risk of winding-up of the Seller’s project

For a number of reasons including, but not limited to, an unfavourable fluctuation in digital asset market value, an unfavourable fluctuation in Tokens value, the failure of business relationships or competing intellectual property claims, the Seller project may no longer be a viable activity and may be dissolved or simply not launched.

Risk of malfunction in the Platform

The Platform may be impacted by an adverse malfunction including, but not limited to, a malfunction that results in the loss of Tokens or market information.

Unforeseen risks

Digital assets are a new and untested technology. In addition to the risks stipulated above, there are other risks that the Seller’s team cannot predict. Risks may also arise out of and/or occur as unanticipated combinations or as changes in the risks stipulated herein.

If you are in any doubt as to the action you should take and the consequences it will involve, please consider consulting your legal, financial, tax or other professional advisor(s) for necessary advice.
