8. Complete Agreement
These Terms set forth the entire understanding between the Purchaser and the Company with respect to the purchase and sale of PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM. For facts relating to the sale and purchase, the Purchaser agrees to rely only on the Terms in determining purchase decisions and understands that the Terms govern the sale of PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM and supersede any public statements about the PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM token sale made by third parties or by the CryptoPeso Team or individuals associated with any of the CryptoPeso Team, past and present.
The Purchaser and the Company agree that if any portion of these Terms is found illegal or unenforceable, in whole or in part, such provision shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective solely to the extent of such determination of invalidity or unenforceability without affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other manner or jurisdiction and without affecting the remaining provisions of the Terms, which shall continue to be in full force and effect.
10. No Waiver
The failure of the Company to require or enforce strict performance by the Purchaser of any provision of these Terms or the Company’s failure to exercise any right under these Terms shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of the Company's right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance. The express waiver by the Company of any provision, condition, or requirement of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of any future obligation to comply with such provision, condition or requirement. Except as expressly and specifically set forth in these Terms, no representations, statements, consents, waivers, or other acts or omissions by the CryptoPeso Team shall be deemed a modification of these Terms nor be legally binding.
11. Updates to the Terms
The Company reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of the Terms at any time during the sale by posting the amended Terms on the Website.

PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM Risks
By purchasing, owning, and using PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM, you expressly acknowledge and assume the following risks:
1. Risk of Losing Access to PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM Due to Loss of Private Key(s), Custodial Error or Purchaser Error
A private key, or a combination of private keys, is necessary to control and dispose of PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM stored in your digital wallet or vault. Accordingly, loss of requisite private key(s) associated with your digital wallet or vault storing PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM will result in loss of such tokens. Moreover, any third party that gains access to such private key(s), including by gaining access to login credentials of a hosted wallet service you use, may be able to misappropriate your PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM. Any errors or malfunctions caused by or otherwise related to the digital wallet or vault you choose to receive and store PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM in, including your own failure to properly maintain or use such digital wallet or vault, may also result in the loss of your tokens. Additionally, your failure to follow precisely the procedures set forth in for buying and receiving Tokens, including, for instance, if you provide the wrong address for the receiving PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM, or provides an address that is not Waves compatible, may result in the loss of your Tokens.
2. Risks Associated with the Waves Protocol
Because PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM and the CryptoPeso platform are based on the Waves protocol, any malfunction, breakdown or abandonment of the Waves protocol may have a material adverse effect on the platform or PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM. Moreover, advances in cryptography, or technical advances such as the development of quantum computing, could present risks to the PHPc or IDG/IDGx/REALM tokens and the platform, including the utility of the PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM for obtaining services, by rendering ineffective the cryptographic consensus mechanism that underpins the Waves protocol.
3. Risk of Mining Attacks
As with other decentralized cryptographic tokens based on the Waves protocol, PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM are susceptible to attacks by miners in the course of validating PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM transactions on the Waves blockchain, including, but not limited, to double-spend attacks, majority mining power attacks, and selfish-mining attacks. Any successful attacks present a risk to the platform, PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM, including, but not limited to, accurate execution and recording of transactions involving PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM.
4. Risk of Hacking and Security Weaknesses
Hackers or other malicious groups or organizations may attempt to interfere with the platform or PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, malware attacks, denial of service attacks, consensus-based attacks, Sybil attacks, smurfing, and spoofing. Furthermore, because the platform is based on open-source software, there is a risk that a third party or a member of the Company team may intentionally or unintentionally introduce weaknesses into the core infrastructure of the platform, which could negatively affect the platform and PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM, including the utility of PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM for obtaining services.
5. Risks Associated with Markets for IDG/IDGx/REALM
If secondary trading of Tokens is facilitated by third party exchanges, such exchanges may be relatively new and subject to little or no regulatory oversight, making them more susceptible to fraud or manipulation. Furthermore, to the extent that third-parties do ascribe an external exchange value to IDG/IDGx/REALM (e.g., as denominated in a digital or After the IDG/IDGx/REALM currency), such value may be extremely volatile.
6. Risk of Uninsured Losses
Unlike bank accounts or accounts at some other financial institutions, PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM are uninsured unless you specifically obtain private insurance to insure them. Thus, in the event of loss or loss of utility value, there is no public insurer or private insurance arranged by Company, to offer recourse to you.
7. Risks Associated with Uncertain Regulations and Enforcement Actions
The regulatory status of PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM and the distributed ledger technology is unclear or unsettled in many jurisdictions. It is difficult to predict how or whether regulatory agencies may apply existing regulation with respect to such technology and its applications, including the CryptoPeso platform, PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM. It is likewise difficult to predict how or whether legislatures or regulatory agencies may implement changes to law and regulation affecting distributed ledger technology and its applications, including the platform, PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM. Regulatory actions could negatively impact the platform in various ways, including, for purposes of illustration only, through a determination that the purchase, sale and delivery of PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM constitutes unlawful activity or that PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM are a regulated instrument that require registration or licensing of those instruments or some or all of the parties involved in the purchase, sale and delivery thereof. The Company may cease operations in a jurisdiction in the event that regulatory actions, or changes to law or regulation, make it illegal to operate in such jurisdiction, or commercially undesirable to obtain the necessary regulatory approval(s) to operate in such jurisdiction.
8. Risks Arising from Taxation
The tax characterization of PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM is uncertain. You must seek your own tax advice in connection with purchasing PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM, which may result in adverse tax consequences to you, including withholding taxes, income taxes and tax reporting requirements.
9. Risk of Competing platforms
It is possible that alternative platforms could be established that utilize the same open source code and protocol underlying the platform and attempt to facilitate services that are materially similar to the CryptoPeso services.
10. Risks Arising from Lack of Governance Rights
Because PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM confer no governance rights of any kind with respect to the CryptoPeso platform or the Company, all decisions involving the Company’s products or services within the platform or the Company itself will be made by the Company at its sole discretion. These decisions could adversely affect the platform and the utility of any tokens you own, including their utility for obtaining services.
11. Unanticipated Risks
Cryptographic tokens such as PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM are a new and untested technology. In addition to the risks included in this Annex A of these Terms, there are other risks associated with your purchase, possession and use of PHPc and IDG/IDGx/REALM, including unanticipated risks. Such risks may further materialize as unanticipated variations or combinations of the risks discussed in this Annex A of these Terms.
