Also, any User that has reached the point after shall be attributed a rank inferior to the User that has first obtained the points.

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the User waives the right to participate in a class action lawsuit or a class-wide arbitration against the Provider, the Operator, the collaborating Partner, or any individual or entity involved in the Fan Token Offering or Platform operations as provided herein.

 

28. GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION

 

These Terms shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the Republic of Malta.

We prefer to solve Your requests in direct contact with You and therefore do not participate in alternative consumer dispute resolution proceedings. If You would like to raise any complaint or dispute, We invite You to bring the matter to Our attention by contacting Us on the Contact Information indicated below.

A Party shall give prompt written notice of any dispute to the other Party (a “Dispute Notice”). Such Dispute Notice will include sufficient details of the dispute to enable the other Party to consider its position in relation to the dispute.

You agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy between You and Us arising in connection with or relating in any way to these Terms or to your relationship with Us as a user of Our Services (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and whether the claims arise during or after the termination of these Terms) will be determined by mandatory final and binding individual (not class) arbitration. You and Us further agree that the arbitrator shall have the exclusive power to rule on his or her own jurisdiction, including without limitation any objections with respect to the existence, scope or validity of the Agreement to Arbitrate, or to the arbitrability of any claim or counterclaim. The arbitration will be administered by the International Court of Arbitration of the ICC. Unless the parties agree otherwise, there shall be only one arbitrator appointed in accordance with the ICC Rules. Any arbitration will be conducted in the English language, unless otherwise required by a mandatory law of a member state of the European Union or any other jurisdiction. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. ANY ARBITRATION AGAINST US MUST BE COMMENCED BY FILING A REQUEST FOR ARBITRATION WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR, AFTER THE DATE THE PARTY ASSERTING THE CLAIM FIRST KNOWS OR REASONABLY SHOULD KNOW OF THE ACT, OMISSION OR DEFAULT GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM; AND THERE SHALL BE NO RIGHT TO ANY REMEDY FOR ANY CLAIM NOT ASSERTED WITHIN THAT TIME PERIOD. THIS ONE YEAR LIMITATION PERIOD IS INCLUSIVE OF THE INTERNAL DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEDURE SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION. THERE SHALL BE NO RIGHT TO ANY REMEDY FOR ANY CLAIM NOT ASSERTED WITHIN THAT TIME PERIOD. If applicable law prohibits a one-year limitation period for asserting claims, any claim must be asserted within the shortest time period permitted by applicable law. No appeal shall be made against the arbitrator’s decisions, and the parties expressly waive their right to do so. The seat of the arbitration shall be Malta. The location of any in-person arbitration hearing shall be Malta, unless otherwise agreed to by the parties.

Each Party agrees to use its best endeavors to settle any dispute amicably between the Parties within a period of 30 days from the date of the Dispute Notice.

Without prejudice to the above, Users may bring a claim to enforce consumer protection rights in connection with these Terms in Switzerland or their country of domicile.

For European Users, the European Commission provides You with another option for raising a dispute via an online dispute resolution platform, which you can access HERE.

Notwithstanding any dispute or reference of certain disputes (or part of certain disputes) for determination by arbitration pursuant to this clause, the Parties will continue to comply with their respective obligations under these Terms.

Any and all payments by or on account of Purchase Consideration shall be made free and clear of and without deduction or withholding for any Payable Tax, except as required by applicable law. If You are required by applicable law to deduct or withhold any Payable Tax from the Purchase Consideration, then:

(i)  the amount of Purchase Consideration shall be increased so that after all such required deductions or withholdings are made (including deductions or withholdings applicable to additional amounts payable under this Section), the Socios receives an amount equal to the Purchase Consideration that would have been received had no such deduction or withholding been made, and

You shall be responsible for determining any value-added tax (“VAT”) on the Purchase Consideration and timely reporting and remitting the correct amount of VAT to the appropriate tax authorities.

The Socios shall not be responsible for determining any Payable Tax and declaring, withholding, collecting, reporting, and remitting the correct amount of Payable Tax to the appropriate tax authorities on Your behalf. You shall be liable to assess the appropriate amount of Payable Tax (including VAT) due by You pursuant to the applicable rules to convert the Purchase Consideration to the currency that is legal tender in Your country.  You shall be liable to pay any Payable Tax due by You, including but not limited to income taxes that may be levied on any gains resulting from such conversion, if appropriate.

You shall hold the Socios harmless from and against any amount of Payable Tax that is required to be paid by You on behalf of the Socios, and any penalties, fines, orders or administrative sanctions (and any costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, costs and other reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with the enforcement of any rights under this Section 28.3 in connection therewith) resulting from or arising out of any failure by You to pay any Payable Tax when due.

 

30. SEVERANCE AND PARTIAL INVALIDITY

The illegality, invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Terms under the law of any jurisdiction shall not affect its legality, validity or enforceability under the law of any other jurisdiction nor the legality, validity or enforceability of any other provision.

 

31. DATA PROTECTION

34. RISK FACTORS

 

You should carefully consider and evaluate each of the following risk factors and all other information contained in the Terms before deciding to participate in any activity on the Platform and/or Features. To the best of Socios’ knowledge and belief, all risk factors which are material to You in making an informed judgment to engage in the Features and Services have been set out below. If any of the following considerations, uncertainties or material risks develop into actual events, the business, financial position and results of operations of Socios could be materially affected. In such cases, the trading price of Tokens (Fan Tokens, Collectible Tokens and the $CHZ Tokens) could decline due to any of these considerations, uncertainties or material risks, and You may lose all or part of Your Tokens (Fan Tokens, Collectible Tokens and Chiliz Tokens). By proceeding to create an Account and using the Platform You are acknowledging these risks.

 

34.1. RISKS RELATING TO PARTICIPATION IN THE TOKEN SALE

 

Purchase of the $CHZ Token from Us as the Socios involves a high degree of risk.

Financial and operating risks confronting innovators are significant and Socios is not immune to these. Innovators often experience unexpected problems in the areas of product development, marketing, financial and general management, amongst others, which frequently cannot be solved.

It is possible that, due to any number of reasons, including but not limited to, an unfavorable fluctuation in the value of cryptographic and fiat currencies, or intellectual property ownership challenges, it may not be viable for Socios to continue its operations and may dissolve or take actions that result in discontinuance of the Platform and Services/Features thereon.

The tax treatment of the Tokens, the purchase rights contained herein is uncertain and there may be adverse tax consequences for You upon certain future events and depending on the jurisdiction in which you are domicile or resident.

You must seek Your own tax advice in connection with purchasing or trading of Tokens. You should consult with and must rely upon the advice of Your own professional tax advisors with respect to tax treatment of a purchase and/or trading of Tokens pursuant to these Terms.

There is no prior market for the Fan Tokens and the Token Sale may not result in an active or liquid market for the Tokens

A Token is not a currency issued by any central bank or national organization, nor is it backed by any hard assets or other credit. Trading of Tokens merely depends on the consensus on its value between the relevant market participants, and no one is obliged to purchase any Token from any holder of the Token, including the purchasers, nor does anyone guarantee the liquidity or market price of the Tokens to any extent at any time. Accordingly, Socios cannot assure that there will be any demand or market for Tokens.

External factors could materially and adversely affect the market price of the Tokens

Any future sale of the Fan Tokens (which were not all available for sale in the Token Sale) would increase the supply of Tokens in the market and this may result in a downward price pressure on the Fan Tokens. The sale or distribution of a significant number of Tokens outside of the Token Sale, or the perception that such further sales may occur, could adversely affect the trading price of the Fan Tokens.

Negative publicity may materially and adversely affect the price of the Tokens and Socios’ business activities

Negative publicity involving the Partners and/or the Socios may materially and adversely affect the market perception or market price of both the Fan Tokens and the Chiliz Token, whether or not such negative publicity is justified.

There is no assurance of any success of the Platform

Changes in conditions affecting the blockchain or fintech industry, the general economic conditions or market sentiments, or other events or factors.

 

34.2. RISKS RELATING TO THE SOCIOS PROJECT

 

There may be weaknesses, vulnerabilities or bugs in the protocols, systems and smart contracts in connection with the Token Sale and Socios Services (including trading activities).

Socios will make reasonable efforts to ensure that the protocols, systems, and smart contracts in connection with the Token Sales, trading and voting are audited, tested, and proved by technical experts. However, as smart contract technology is still in its early stage of development and its application of experimental nature carries significant operation, technological, financial, regulatory and reputational risks, there are inherent risks that such protocols, systems and smart contracts could contain weaknesses, vulnerabilities or bugs.

We provide the Collectible Token, and license the Artwork to the owner of the Collectible Token, on an ‘as is’ basis, and expressly disclaim any warranties or conditions of any kind, either express or implied, including, without limitation, any warranties or conditions of title, non-infringement, merchantability, or fitness of a particular purpose.

Socios is dependent in part on the location and data center facilities of third parties.

The infrastructure network of Socios is in part established through servers which they own and house at the location facilities of third parties, and servers that they rent at data center facilities of third parties. If Socios is unable to renew its data facility lease on commercially reasonable terms or at all, the Socios may be required to transfer their Services to a new data center facility and may incur significant costs and possible service interruption in connection with the relocation. These facilities are also vulnerable to damage or interruption from, among others, natural disasters, arson, terrorist attacks, power losses and telecommunication failures. Additionally, the third-party providers of such facilities may suffer a breach of security. Any security breaches or damages which occur may impact Socios and the price of the Tokens.

There may be prevention of transaction requests

Socios cannot be held responsible if You are prevented from sending a transaction request, or Your transaction request or email is not received by Us due to hardware, software or Services issues (including, without limitation, internet and other network connectivity issues).

There may be the termination of the business relationship with the Partner which would mean discontinuance of any Feature or Service related to a particular Partner.

 

TOKEN TERMS

 

Preamble

 

These Token Terms (“Terms”), which may be amended from time to time, govern the distribution and nature of Collectible Tokens, the purchase of Fan Tokens during a Fan Token Offering, the use of the Token Wallet, as well as the conditions under which you (the “User”) are able to use the Token Wallet and participate in Fan Token Offerings. Please read these Terms carefully before using any of the services described herein.

 

1. CLARIFICATION OF CONTRACTUAL RELATIONSHIPS

 

Socios Technologies AG, duly registered under the laws of Switzerland bearing company registration number CHE-219.335.797 (“Provider”) collaborates with organizations in the sports industry (“Partners”) that grant the Provider the right to generate, sell and market utility Tokens that carry the name of the Partners and their respective teams (“Fan Tokens”) as well as digital collectible tokens (“Collectible Tokens”). Fan Tokens and Collectible Tokens can be stored and managed via a digital wallet that is operated by the Provider (“Token Wallet”).

Among other digital interfaces, the Provider uses the digital fan engagement platform “Socios.com” (“Platform”) to sell a limited amount of all Fan Tokens to Users before they reach the public marketplace and to make certain fan engagement or interaction functionalities of Fan Tokens available to Users. The Platform is operated by Socios Services Limited, a private company limited by shares incorporated in Malta with Company Registration Number C91496 (“Operator”). The Platform is subject to separate terms and conditions (“Platform Terms”) available HERE. The Platform is accessible via web app or mobile application which can be downloaded on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store free of charge. The Platform enables its users (“Users”) to create a user account to buy, access, sell, and use blockchain-based tokens (“Tokens”) that are generated and sold by the Provider, the Operator, or any affiliated entities of the Provider and/or the Operator.

By accepting these Terms and participating in the public sale offering by the Provider of Fan Tokens (“Fan Token Offering”), and accepting the distribution of any Collectible Tokens and Competition Fan Tokens,, the User understands and acknowledges that these Terms are binding between the User and the Provider only and that the Operator is not a party to these Terms. This means, in particular, that the Operator does not sell any Fan Tokens to the Users, does not operate the Token Wallet on which the Fan Tokens are stored, and does not assume any responsibility or liability with regard to the subject matter described herein. In order to use and/or access the Platform, User will need to enter into a separate contractual relationship with the Operator on the basis of the Platform Terms.

 

2. FAN TOKENS

 

2.1. TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION

 

Fan Tokens are blockchain-based tokens that exist on a private permissioned sidechain of the Ethereum blockchain operated by the Provider (“Chiliz Sidechain”). Fan Tokens are generated by one or more smart contracts that are deployed by the Provider on the Chiliz Sidechain (“Smart Contract System”). Fan Tokens technically constitute a transferable representation of attributed functions that are specified in the Smart Contracts.

 

2.2. FAN TOKEN NAME AND TICKER SYMBOL

 

All Fan Tokens that are sold during a Fan Token Offering carry a unique name in reference to the cooperating Partner to which the Fan Token relates, as well as a ticker symbol that consists of a combination of numbers or letters. The User agrees that the Provider may, at its sole discretion and at any time, change the name of the Fan Token and/or its ticker symbol. The Provider shall use all reasonable efforts to ensure that such change of name and/or symbol will not adversely affect the rights of the User, or the Fan Tokens held by the User.

 

2.3. FAN TOKEN FUNCTIONALITIES

 

2.3.1. Overview

 

The various Fan Tokens that are sold during the Fan Token Offerings may provide the User with one or more specific fan engagement or interaction functionalities as further described herein (“Token Functionalities“). The User understands and acknowledges that every Fan Token has different Token Functionalities and that the type and amount of Token Functionalities made available for a particular Fan Token depend entirely on the engagement strategy of the collaborating Partner.

 

2.3.2. Partnership Agreement

 

The User understands that the Token Functionalities of the Fan Tokens that are sold during a Fan Token Offering depend on the contractual agreement between the Provider and the collaborating Partner (“Partnership Agreement”). While all Partnership Agreements are entered into with the objective to build on a long-term relationship, they will not remain in effect in perpetuity. The User understands that the Partnership Agreements will eventually expire or be terminated and acknowledges that Fan Tokens may partially or fully lose their Token Functionalities as a result of such expiration or termination.

In case of an expiration or termination of the Partnership Agreement, the User remains able to hold and trade the corresponding Fan Tokens on the Platform or anywhere else, unless otherwise communicated to the User. In no case shall the Provider, the Operator, or the Partner be held liable for any losses, expenses or any other damages incurred by the User as a result of a partial or full loss of the Token Functionalities.

 

2.3.3. NO GUARANTEED TOKEN FUNCTIONALITIES

 

The User understands and acknowledges that the Token Functionalities of a Fan Token are not conclusively defined at the time of its issuance and that the Provider has the right to add additional or remove existing Token Functionalities at any time at its sole discretion and/or based on instructions of the respective Partner. The User further understands and acknowledges that the addition of Token Functionalities by the Provider is not guaranteed, and that Fan Tokens might therefore not provide the User with any Token Functionalities at all.

By purchasing Fan Tokens during a Fan Token Offering or at any time thereafter, the User does not obtain the right to claim any Token Functionalities from the Provider. The User solely acquires the right to make use of Token Functionalities that are offered by the Provider, provided that the User meets the Usage Requirements that are defined by the Provider as described in Section 2.4.2. below.

 

2.3.4. Types of Token Functionalities

 

a) Participation in Surveys

 

Fan Tokens may allow holders to execute voting rights in relation to binding or non-binding surveys and polls as further described herein (“Surveys”). Participation in the Surveys is subject to the following conditions and limitations:

 

b) Participation in Fan Rewards

 

Fan Tokens may allow holders to access or benefit from certain products or services related to the collaborating Partner exclusively, (“Fan Rewards”) which is a feature of the Platform managed by the Operator. The rules and restrictions regarding the participation in Fan Rewards are provided under the Platform Terms.

The User understands and acknowledges that Fan Rewards might require interaction with the Platform or on any other digital interface as mutually agreed upon by and between the Provider and the collaborating Partner as set forth in the Partnership Agreement.

 

2.4. USAGE OF TOKEN FUNCTIONALITIES

 

2.4.1. Visibility and Communication

 

Since the Chiliz Sidechain is private and permissioned, the Token Functionalities and their associated smart contracts are not visible to the public on the blockchain-level. Fan Token Functionalities can only be viewed, managed, and used on the Platform or on any other digital interface determined by the Provider mutually agreed upon by and between the Provider and the collaborating Partner as set forth in the Partnership Agreement. However, when an upgrade of the Chiliz Sidechain is released, such permissions and authorities may be subject to change. The User understands and acknowledges that the Provider has no obligation to inform the User about new Token Functionalities or new digital interfaces.

 

2.4.2. Additional Usage Requirements

 

The Token Functionalities offered by the Provider (if any) may be subject to additional usage requirements (“Usage Requirements”) which are determined by the Provider at its sole discretion. The Provider may for example determine that the use of a certain Token Functionality is dependent on the amount of Fan Token that are held by the User or on the duration for which the Fan Token have been held by the User. The Provider can further limit the number of available products and services that are offered as part of a Loyalty Program and allocate them to qualifying Users on a “first come, first served” basis.

 

2.5. LEGAL CLARIFICATIONS REGARDING FAN TOKENS

 

2.5.1. No Means of Payment

 

When a User makes use of a particular Token Functionality offered by the Provider, the Fan Token used to access the Token Functionality will not be burned, consumed, transferred, or otherwise surrendered but will remain with the User. This means that the Fan Token are not used as a means of payment or value transfer but to unlock Token Functionalities made available by the Provider for the Fan Token holder, subject to the conditions set forth by Provider with respect to the particular Fan Token Functionality.

 

2.5.2. NO FINANCIAL RIGHTS

 

Fan Tokens shall enable the User to build a personal connection and immaterial bond with the collaborating Partner. The User is expected to purchase and hold Fan Tokens for emotional and non-commercial reasons only and to make use of the Token Functionalities that may be offered by the Provider as described herein. By accepting these Terms, the User acknowledges that the relationship between the User and the collaborating Partner will always remain on a non-monetary basis. This has the following consequences:

THIS DOCUMENT DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A PROSPECTUS OF ANY SORT, IS NOT A SOLICITATION FOR INVESTMENT AND DOES NOT PERTAIN IN ANY WAY TO AN INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING OR A SHARE/EQUITY OFFERING AND DOES NOT PERTAIN IN ANY WAY TO AN OFFERING OF SECURITIES IN ANY JURISDICTION. THIS DOCUMENT HAS NOT BEEN AND WILL NOT BE REGISTERED AS A PROSPECTUS WITH ANY GOVERNMENTAL AUTHORITY.

 

2.5.3. Possible Modification and Termination

 

The Provider has the right to offer, modify, eliminate, and/or terminate Tokens, the content, and/or the Services, or any portion thereof, at any time, without liability to the User. If the Provider decides to discontinue the use of Tokens, the Provider will provide at least thirty (30) days advance notice to the User by posting a notice through the Services or through other communications.

3. FAN TOKEN OFFERINGS

 

3.1. TOKEN SUPPLY

 

The total amount of each Fan Token that is generated by the Provider is fixed and will be publicly communicated prior to the Fan Token Offering (“Token Supply”). The Provider will not be able to create any additional Fan Tokens. The User understands and acknowledges that the Token Supply is higher than the number of Fan Token that are available for purchase during the Fan Token Offering.

 

3.2. FAN TOKEN OFFERING PERIOD

 

Each Fan Token Offering has a set period of time during which Users can purchase newly issued Fan Tokens from the Provider before they reach the secondary markets (“Fan Token Offering Period”). The beginning and the end of each Fan Token Offering Period is determined by the Provider at its sole discretion. The Provider will communicate the beginning of each Token Offering Period on the Platform or through other communication channels as it may determine at its sole discretion. The User understands and acknowledges that the Provider reserves the right to terminate an ongoing Fan Token Offering at any time and for any reason.

 

3.3. NO RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE

 

All Fan Token Offerings take place on a first-come first-served basis. Since the demand for Fan Tokens may exceed the available supply, the amount of Fan Tokens that can be purchased by the User during the Fan Token Offering can be limited by the Provider at any time. The Provider may also refuse or interrupt purchase requests, impose limits on the number of purchases that can be completed, or impose any other conditions or restrictions upon the participation of the User in the Fan Token Offering without prior notice and at its sole discretion. The User understands and acknowledges that the amount of Fan Token that are effectively purchased by the User during the Fan Token Offering is not guaranteed until the Fan Tokens are finally allocated to the User as described below.

 

3.4. MINIMUM AND MAXIMUM CAP

 

The smallest amount of Fan Token that can be purchased by the User during a Fan Token Offering is one (1) Fan Token (“Minimum Cap”). The Provider additionally has the right to determine a maximum number of Fan Token (“Maximum Cap”) that can be purchased by the User during the Fan Token Offering. The Provider explicitly reserves its right to adjust the Minimum Cap and the Maximum Cap during the Token Offering Period at any time and at its sole discretion upon giving fifteen (15) days advance notice.

In the event that the User attempts to purchase Fan Tokens in an amount exceeding the Maximum Cap, and provided that the User’s payment for such attempted purchase of Fan Tokens is successfully received by the Provider, the Provider may decide to do any of the following, at its sole and absolute discretion:

Unless otherwise described herein, the Provider shall have no obligations to the User in any form or manner whatsoever in respect of such attempted purchase. The User hereby waives all rights, claims and/or courses of action (present or future) under law (including any tortious claims) or contract against the Provider or its Affiliates in connection with or arising from such attempted purchase, and further agrees to hold the Provider and its Affiliates harmless from and against any and all losses, damages, taxes, liabilities, and expenses that the User may incur in connection with or arising from such attempted purchase.

 

3.5. PARTICIPATION REQUIREMENTS

 

3.5.1. SOCIOS ACCOUNT

 

The User can only participate in a Fan Token Offering if the User has created a user account on the Platform (“Socios Account”). All actions that are taken by the User on the Platform or the Socios Account are subject to the Platform Terms. The User understands and acknowledges that the Provider does not assume any responsibility or liability for the availability or proper functioning of the Platform or the Socios Account during the Fan Token Offering or any other time.

3.5.2. CHILIZ WALLET

 

The User can only participate in a Fan Token Offering if the User has accepted the relevant terms of use of Socios Services Baltics UAB domiciled in Lithuania which offers a custodial wallet solution for Chiliz Token (“Chiliz Wallet”). Similar to the Token Wallet, the Chiliz Wallet is integrated by the Operator into the Platform via a public API and can therefore be directly accessed by the User via the Socios Account.

All actions that are taken by the User on the Chiliz Wallet are subject to the terms and conditions of Socios Services Baltics UAB which can be accessed HERE . The User understands and acknowledges that the Provider does not assume any responsibility or liability for the availability or proper functioning of the Chiliz Wallet at any time.

3.5.3. ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

 

To be eligible to participate in the Fan Token Offering, the User must be at least 18 (eighteen) years old or be of a sufficient age to legally obtain and hold Fan Token in the User’s jurisdiction and must not be a citizen or resident (i) of any country that prohibits the participation in Fan Token Offerings or the holding of Fan Tokens; (ii) of a country that is included in any international, regional or other sanction list or measures; or (iii) that is subject to any sanctions administered or enforced by any country or government or international authority (“Excluded Jurisdiction”).

The User shall not participate in a Fan Token Offering if there are any applicable legal restrictions in the User’s country of residence or domicile. It is the sole responsibility of the User to ensure that the participation in a Fan Token Offering is not prohibited, restricted, curtailed, hindered, impaired or otherwise adversely affected in any way by any applicable law, regulation, or rule in the User’s country of residence or domicile. The User acknowledges and accepts that some of the services and/or Token Functionalities may be adjusted or restricted, in whole or in part, in certain jurisdictions by the Provider in order to comply with any requirements or restrictions as may be imposed by local laws and authorities.

3.5.4. Additional Identification of User

 

While the Provider assumes that the identity of the User has been successfully verified by the Operator as part of the creation of the Socios Account, the Provider reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to implement additional measures to establish and verify the identity of the User and request additional documents and information. The Provider has the right to reject Fan Token purchases by the User at any time prior to their allocation if the User is unable to furnish such documents or information to the Provider’s satisfaction.

 

3.6. PAYMENT OF PURCHASE PRICE

 

3.6.1. Mandatory Use Of Chiliz Token

 

Fan Token purchases on the Platform are only possible with Chiliz Token. To purchase Fan Token during the Fan Token Offering or on the Socios Marketplace (see Section 5.1 below), the User must therefore ensure that there are enough Chiliz Token in his Chiliz Wallet. The User can add Chiliz Token to his Chiliz Wallet in two different ways:

3.6.2. No Refund

 

The User understands and acknowledges that orders placed during the Fan Token Offering cannot be canceled after submission. The User further understands and acknowledges that all payments made during the Fan Token Offering Period are final and non-refundable and that the User has no right to request a refund for any reason. If the demand for the Fan Token exceeds the available supply, any excess purchase price (“Purchase Price”) paid by the User will be automatically sent back to the User.

 

3.7. TOKEN ALLOCATION

 

The Fan Tokens that are purchased by the User are allocated to the Token Wallet of the User (as defined below). After the allocation, the Fan Token may be subject to transfer restrictions for a limited period of time during which the Fan Token cannot be transferred, sold, or used by the User (“Lockup Period”). The Lockup Period may apply on the entire or part of the Fan Tokens purchased by the User, as may be communicated by the Provider.

 

3.8. TAXATION

 

The User bears the sole responsibility to determine if the participation in the Fan Token Offering and/or the purchase or sale of Fan Token has any tax implications for the User. By purchasing, holding, using, or selling Fan Token, and to the extent permitted by law, the User agrees not to hold the Provider, the Operator, the collaborating Partner or any third party liable for any tax liabilities arising from the purchase, ownership, sale or use of Fan Token. The User is solely responsible for determining any payable tax and declaring, withholding, reporting, and remitting the correct amount of any taxes to the appropriate tax authorities in the User’s country of residence.

 

4. TOKEN WALLET

 

4.1. PURPOSE AND LIMITATIONS

 

The Token Wallet is a software-based custodial blockchain wallet operated by the Provider that controls the private key (“PIK”) to the unique public address of the User (“User Address”). The Token Wallet enables the User to hold Fan Tokens and make use of the Fan Token Functionalities as further described herein. The Token Wallet of the User is created and integrated into the Socios Account when the User accepts these Terms.

The Token Wallet can only hold Fan Tokens, Collectible Tokens, and other blockchain-based assets that exist on the Socios Side Chain. While the Socios Side Chain is compatible with the Ethereum blockchain, it is an independent blockchain that employs its own consensus model and block parameters. Tokens that exist on one blockchain cannot be transferred to the other.

 

4.2. TOKEN WALLET SECURITY

 

4.2.1. Responsibility of User

 

The Provider is committed to maintain the security of the Token Wallet to safeguard the Fan Tokens that are held on the User Address and has implemented industry standard protection for this purpose. However, the User is fully responsible for the security of the access credentials that are required to get access to the Token Wallet as well as the personal devices on which the Token Wallet is accessible.

The User understands that all actions taken on the Token Wallet will be deemed as actions that are performed by the User and acknowledges that the Provider assumes no responsibility or liability for any loss or damages caused by the authorized or unauthorized use of the access credentials or personal devices of the User. If the User loses a personal device or is concerned that the access credentials have been disclosed to a third party, the User shall immediately notify the Provider via report@chiliz.com. The User may elect to set up an additional password to transfer Fan Tokens and/or Collectible Tokens out of the Token Wallet in order to increase security (“Withdrawal Password”). If the User loses the Withdrawal Password, the Provider will assist to reset it however cannot guarantee when such reset process is completed and therefore the Provider does not assume liability for such direct or indirect losses occasioned by the User as a result of losing such Withdrawal Password.

 

4.2.2. Disclaimers

 

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable laws, regulations, and rules, and except as otherwise provided in these Terms, the Provider hereby expressly disclaims its liability and shall in no case be liable to any person for:

4.2.3. Security Guidelines

 

To safeguard the Fan Tokens and Collectible Tokens of the User, the Provider highly recommends that the User uses due care when accessing the Platform and storing access credentials, in particular, but not limited to, by adhering to the following security guidelines:

 

4.3. TOKEN WALLET TRANSACTIONS

 

4.3.1. Incoming Transactions

 

Since the User Address is displayed in the Socios Account, the User has the option to transfer Fan Tokens and Collectible Tokens from the User’s account on the Chiliz Exchange or any other blockchain wallet that is compatible with the Chiliz Sidechain to the User Address (“Third Party Wallet Providers”). The User understands and acknowledges that incoming transactions shall be at the sole risk of the User. If the User enters the wrong User Address, the Provider will not be able to assist. If the User sends any assets other than Fan Tokens and Collectible Tokens to the User Address, they will be irrevocably lost and not be returned by the Provider. Although the Provider does not charge any Fees related to such incoming transactions, Third Party Wallet Providers may. The User shall be exclusively responsible to bear any costs incurred during such transactions as charged by Third Party Wallet Providers.

 

4.3.2. Outgoing Transactions

 

The Provider holds the PIK to the User Address and has control over all Fan Tokens and Collectible Tokens that are held on the User Address. As a consequence, all outgoing transactions from the Token Wallet must be signed by the Provider. The Provider only signs transactions that are requested by the User. The Provider reserves its right to deny or suspend the execution of a transaction request if such action is reasonably required to comply with any contractual or regulatory obligations. Any Fees related to such outgoing transactions shall be exclusively borne by the User.

 

4.4. FEES

 

The User understands and acknowledges that the Provider charges a specific amount for some transactions as specified in these Terms and on the Fees Information Page (“Fees”). The User agrees to pay the Provider the Fees. The Provider may, at its entire discretion, update the Fees at any time. These updated fees will apply to all transactions that occur following the effective date of the updated Fees. The User authorizes the Provider to deduct from the balance available on the Socios Account any applicable Fees due to the Provider pursuant to these Terms.

 

4.5. ACCESS TO TOKEN WALLET

 

The Token Wallet is a stand-alone software application developed and operated by the Provider that exists independently of the Platform. In order to enable the User to access the Token Wallet via the Platform, the Operator has integrated a public API into the Platform (“Token Wallet API”). The Token Wallet API is not limited to the Application but can also be integrated into other third-party applications.

 

4.6. SUSPENSION AND CONFISCATION

 

4.6.1. Prerequisites

 

The Provider explicitly reserves its right to suspend the access to the Token Wallet of the User and/or lock or confiscate all or some of the Fan Tokens or Collectible Tokens held on the User Address, at any time and without notice, if the Provider sees it necessary to protect the interest of the User, the Provider or any third party, or if the Provider reasonably suspects any of the following:

If the Provider temporarily suspends the Token Wallet or locks any Fan Tokens held on the User Address, such suspension or lock may remain in effect until such time as the ground for such restriction is extinct and/or resolved to the Provider’s full satisfaction.

 

4.6.2. No Liability

 

The User understands and acknowledges that the Provider is not liable for any permanent or temporary suspension of the Token Wallet and is not required to repay the Purchase Price for any Fan Tokens or Collectible Tokens that are confiscated by the Provider as described herein.

 

5. SECONDARY MARKET TRANSACTIONS OF FAN TOKENS

 

5.1. SOCIOS MARKETPLACE

 

5.1.1. Overview

 

Once the Fan Token Offering ends, the Provider will at its sole discretion list the respective Fan Token on the Platform for Users to be able to buy and sell the Fan Token directly on the Platform (“Socios Marketplace”). All transactions on the Socios Marketplace are executed between the User and the Provider. The Socios Marketplace does not enable Users to trade Fan Tokens on a peer-to-peer basis with other users.

 

5.1.2. Submission of Offers

 

To buy or sell Fan Tokens on the Socios Marketplace, the User must submit an offer to the Provider at the prices quoted in the Socios Marketplace (“Offers”). The User understands and acknowledges that Offers made on the Socios Marketplace are legally binding and cannot be withdrawn by the User. The Provider shall have the right to accept or decline Offers at its sole and absolute discretion. If the Provider does not accept an Offer within one hour (“Offer Period”), the Offer shall be deemed declined by the Provider. All Offers that are submitted by the User will be displayed on the transaction history page. The Provider does not automatically cancel Offers that are not fulfilled following the expiry of the Offer Period. The User remains solely responsible for canceling any Offer that has not been fulfilled following the expiry of the Offer Period.

If the Offer submitted by the User is for the purchase of Fan Tokens, the Provider charges an additional trading margin to cover any short-term price movements (“Trading Margin”). The Trading Margin is disclosed separately and refunded to the User if unused.

Before the Offer is submitted by the User, Fees applying to the Offers are displayed to the Users on the Socios Marketplace.

 

5.1.3. Temporary Lockup

 

Once the User has submitted an Offer, the Purchase Price including the Trading Margin (Fan Token purchase) or the Fan Token that are offered by the User (Fan Token sale) will be temporarily locked until the Offer is either accepted or declined. The User will therefore not be able to transfer Chiliz Tokens or Fan Tokens that are tied up in an Offer.

The User further understands and acknowledges that when submitting an Offer on the Socios Marketplace, there is no guarantee that the Offer will be fulfilled and that such Offer may remain pending in certain instances, including but not limited to, in the event of a price fluctuation of the Fan Token which is the subject of such Offer. In such instances, the User may check the status of the Offer which will be displayed on the transaction history page, following which the User may proceed to cancel the Offer and resubmit the same.  The Provider does not accept responsibility for Offers that are not matched due to a price fluctuation or any technical issue (“Unmatched Offers”). The Provider excludes any liability whatsoever arising out of or resulting from any Unmatched Offer, or out of the difference between the price of the Unmatched Offer and the higher price of the similar Offer the User has submitted subsequently.

5.1.4. Acceptance/ Matching of Offers

 

When the Offer is accepted, the respective amount of Fan Tokens will be either credited onto (when you buy) or debited from (when you sell) the User’s Token Wallet.

The Provider shall charge any Fees applicable to the User, when the Offer is accepted.

 

5.2. CHILIZ EXCHANGE

 

Once the Fan Token Offering is concluded, the Fan Token will be listed on the centralized exchange platform Chiliz.Net which is operated by Entertainment Trading Technologies Limited and accessible via https://www.chiliz.net (“Chiliz Exchange”). Once the Lockup Period has ended, the Fan Token that were purchased during the Fan Token Offering Period can be transferred to the Chiliz Exchange where they can be sold to other participants.

Since the Provider is not involved in the operations of the Chiliz Exchange, the Provider does not guarantee that the User will be able to create a user account on the Chiliz Exchange or sell the Fan Token that are held thereon. The Provider does not assume any responsibility or liability for the availability or proper functioning of the Chiliz Exchange.The User understands and acknowledges that the User does not purchase the right to trade Fan Token on the Chiliz Exchange by participating in the Fan Token Offering.

 

6. REMOVAL OF FAN TOKEN

 

6.1. FAN TOKEN REMOVAL

 

The Provider, the Operator, the collaborating Partner or any other third party reserve their right to remove any Fan Token from any digital interface, temporarily or permanently, at any time and without prior notice to the User, if such a removal is reasonably required to comply with any contractual or regulatory obligations (“Token Removal”). The User therefore understands and acknowledges that there is no guarantee that Fan Tokens will remain available after the Fan Token Offering. In no case shall the Provider be held liable for any losses, expenses or any other damages incurred by the User as a result of a Token Removal.

 

6.2. IMPACT OF FAN TOKEN REMOVAL

 

In case of a Token Removal, the User may lose the ability to use the Token Functionalities that have been added to the Fan Token by the Provider. Furthermore, the User loses the ability to transfer Fan Token to his User Wallet or make use of the Exchange Services. If the User holds Fan Token on the User Wallet at the time of the Token Removal, the User will be able to transfer the Fan Token to another compatible wallet address outside of the Platform. In case of a permanent removal, the Operator may set a deadline for the transfer after which any Fan Tokens held by the User on the User Wallet are destroyed.

 

7. COLLECTIBLE TOKENS

 

A Collectible Token is a limited-edition blockchain-based token generated by the Provider that exists on the Chiliz Sidechain and displays an artwork (in any form or media, including, without limitation, video or photographs) created in cooperation between the Provider and its Partners (“Artwork”) which incorporates the Provider’s, affiliated entities’ and Partners’ intellectual property rights as well as third-party rights.

 

7.1. ACCESS TO COLLECTIBLE TOKENS

 

From time to time, the Provider may generate Collectible Tokens, which are made available on the Platform and can be acquired by Users active on Surveys as well as certain features of the Platform in accordance with the Platform Terms.

 

7.2. NATURE OF COLLECTIBLE TOKENS

 

Collectible Tokens are non-fungible (unique) blockchain-based tokens that are designed to provide entertainment value in obtaining and holding them. Collectible Tokens do not grant their holders voting rights. The market value of a Collectible Token (if any) may vary and the Provider does not and cannot guarantee the market value of such Collectible Token. Collectible Tokens exist by virtue of the ownership record maintained in the applicable ledger. Upon receipt of a Collectible Token, the User agrees to comply with all the terms, including the Restrictions detailed in Section 7.5. below.

 

7.3. NO OWNERSHIP RIGHTS

By receiving and holding a Collectible Token on the Token Wallet, the User does not become the owner of the Artwork or the intellectual property rights contained therein. The intellectual property rights of the Provider, affiliates and Partners and any third-party rights that are incorporated in the Artwork and represented by the Collectible Token are not transferred to the User as the recipient of the Collectible Token.

As long as the User complies with these Terms, the Provider hereby grants to the User, solely for so long as the User is the holder of the Collectible Token, an exclusive, transferable, non-sublicensable, worldwide license to access, use and display the Artwork and the rights incorporated using the Collectible Token, solely for personal, non-commercial purposes (“License”).

 

7.4. TRANSFER TO THIRD PARTY

 

As the holder of a Collectible Token the User may transfer the Collectible Token, at the User’s exclusive cost and responsibility, to a third party on any compatible third-party platform. However, the License granted to the User as described herein will immediately terminate upon the transfer (via sale, donation or otherwise). The License will also immediately terminate if the User breaches these Terms and the Provider may forfeit any Collectible Token held in the User’s Token Wallet as a consequence of such breach.

 

7.5. RESTRICTIONS

 

Except as otherwise expressly set forth within these Terms, Users who receive or hold Collectible Tokens do not have or receive any ownership rights in:

The Competition Fan Tokens are non-tradeable and cannot be bought, sold, transferred or disposed of in any manner whatsoever. Competition Fan Tokens enhance the engagement on the Socios.com Platform of Users who hold a Fan Token of clubs which are, within the respective football season then in force, participating in the Competitions, and subject to the terms set out herein.

10. DATA PROTECTION AND PRIVACY

 

10.1. GENERAL

 

When the User makes use of the Token Wallet or participates in a Fan Token Offering, the Provider will get access to various types of Personal Data that will be processed by the Provider as further described in the Privacy Policy of the Operator available HERE (“Privacy Policy”).

 

10.2. ACCOUNT AND TRANSACTION DATA

 

The Provider has the right to keep and use the transaction data or other information related to the Token Wallet of the User for as long as the Socios Account is active, as well as for as long as the storage has a legal basis. This is required to ensure that the Provider can fulfill its contractual obligations under these Terms. By accepting these Terms, the User acknowledges that the Chiliz Sidechain is immutable and that the Provider is not able to delete the transaction data of the User from the blockchain.

10.3. DISCLOSURE TO COLLABORATING PARTNERS

 

The User understands and acknowledges that the Provider processes (personal) data directly or in conjunction with other Affiliates and/or transfers such (personal) data to third-party including Partners in compliance with the Applicable Laws and in accordance with the Privacy Policy.

 

11. VIOLATION OF TERMS OR REGULATION

 

In the event that the Provider discovers, at any time after the acceptance of these Terms, that the participation of the User in the Fan Token Offering is in violation of these Terms or any applicable laws and regulations, the purchase of Fan Token by the User will be regarded as invalid and/or void ab initio. The User understands and acknowledges that the Provider shall not be obliged to deliver any Fan Token to the User and shall have no obligation in any form or manner whatsoever in respect of such attempted purchase.

 

12. RISKS RELATED TO FAN TOKENS

 

There are various risks in connection with the use of the Token Wallet and the participation in the Fan Token Offering as described herein. The User should carefully consider and evaluate each of the following risk factors and all other information contained in the Terms before deciding to purchase and use Fan Tokens. By accepting these Terms, the User understands and acknowledges in particular the following risks:

Third Party Risks: The Provider collaborates with third parties such as the Operator and the cooperating Partner to manage and operate the Fan Token Offering and provide the Token Functionalities. The User understands and acknowledges that the Partnership Agreements between the Provider and the cooperating Partners do not remain in effect in perpetuity, that the operation of the Platform may be discontinued for any reasons whatsoever, and that the Fan Token may consequently lose its intended usability.

Risk of Software Weaknesses: The User understands and acknowledges that complex software such as the Smart Contract System, the Chiliz Sidechain, the Platform, and all other software applications that are used for the Fan Token Offering are never entirely free from defects, errors, bugs, and security vulnerabilities, and that the Provider therefore does not warrant that the Fan Token Offering or the Fan Token will be free from defects, errors, and bugs. If any issues or problems arise in connection with the participation in the Fan Token Offering, it may take days, weeks or months to resolve, and some issues may not be resolved at all.

Risk of Transaction Verification: The User understands and acknowledges that the allocation of Fan Token after the Fan Token Offering and/or any subsequent transaction of Fan Token may be delayed or not be executed due to the transaction volume on the Chiliz Sidechain, mining attacks and/or similar events.

Risk of Upgrade to Ethereum 2.0: The User understands and acknowledges that the Ethereum community is currently planning an upgrade of the Ethereum blockchain to Ethereum 2.0 and that as part of this upgrade or any subsequent release, hotfix or upgrade of the Ethereum blockchain, the Chiliz Sidechain may suffer from setbacks which may cause, inter alia, a complete loss of the Fan Token.

Regulatory Risk: The User understands and acknowledges that DLT technology allows for new forms of interaction and that certain jurisdictions may apply existing regulations or introduce new regulations that may result in a Token Removal, a substantial modification of the Fan Tokens, limitations or restrictions on Token Functionalities or a complete loss of Fan Tokens.

Risk of Legal Qualification: The User understands and acknowledges that Fan Tokens are a relatively new phenomenon and that no relevant prejudices regarding their qualification or legal treatment are available. Therefore, the risk remains that a court in any jurisdiction may conclude that the Fan Token Offering and/or the issuance of Fan Token are in violation of statutory law.

Risk of Loss of Private Key: If Fan Tokens are removed from the User Wallet, they can only be accessed by using a compatible wallet with a combination of the User’s account information and private key. The User understands and acknowledges that if his private key gets lost or stolen, the Fan Token will be unrecoverable and will be permanently lost.

Risk of Attacks: The User understands and acknowledges that, as with other DLT networks, the Chiliz Sidechain is susceptible to attacks, including but not limited to, denial of service attacks, exploits of consensus nodes, and byzantine attacks on the consensus nodes. Any successful attacks present a risk to the Smart Contract System, expected proper execution and sequencing of Fan Token transactions, and expected proper execution and sequencing of contract computations.

Risk of Depreciation: The User understands and accepts that with regard to the Fan Tokens, no market liquidity may be guaranteed and that the value of the Fan Tokens (if any) may experience extreme volatility over time or depreciate in full. Trading of Fan Tokens merely depends on the consensus on its value between the relevant market participants, and no one is obliged to purchase any Fan Tokens from any holder, including the User, nor does anyone guarantee a market price for Fan Tokens at any time.

The User understands and acknowledges that the risks listed above are borne exclusively by the User, that the User cannot pass on the consequences of a realization of these risks to the Provider, the Operator, the collaborating Partner, or any other third party and that the Purchase Price will not be refunded to the User if any of these risks are realized.

The provisions that by their nature are intended to survive the deactivation of the Token Wallet shall so survive.

 

18. SIMULTANEOUS TERMINATION OF ALL AGREEMENTS

 

The User hereby understands, acknowledges and accepts that in the event that that there exist grounds for termination of either: (i) these Terms; or (ii) the Platform Terms; or (iii) Chiliz Wallet Terms, or (iv) any other terms or contractual relationships which the User enters into related to the Platform ((i), (ii), (iii) and (iv) shall be referred to as the “Global Terms of Use”); and any of the Global Terms of Use are consequently terminated for whatever reason, all other Global Terms of Use shall be automatically terminated in a simultaneous manner.

CHILIZ WALLET TERMS

 

Preamble

 

These Terms of Use for the Chiliz Wallet on the Socios Account (“Chiliz Wallet Terms”), which may be amended from time to time, govern the use of the Chiliz Wallet by the user (“User” / “You” / “Your”). 

Please read these Chiliz Wallet Terms carefully before you use any of the services described herein. By clicking the “Accept” button, you agree to be bound by these Chiliz Wallet Terms and all other terms that are incorporated by reference.

 

1. CLARIFICATION OF CONTRACTUAL RELATIONSHIPS

 

Socios Services Baltics UAB, a limited liability company incorporated in Lithuania with company registration number 306098470 (“Custodian”) operates a custodial digital wallet that allows users to store Chiliz Tokens ($CHZ) (“Chiliz Wallet”). The Chiliz Wallet is a backend-only application and can only be accessed via third-party applications and platforms, which have integrated the Chiliz Wallet API (as defined in Section 2.1.2).

The “Chiliz Token” is a blockchain-based token based on the ERC-20 token standard of the Ethereum blockchain, or any other protocol as may be determined by us, that was generated and issued by HX Entertainment Limited, a limited liability company incorporated in Malta with company registration number C77290 (“Issuer”). The Chiliz Token is the official currency powering the digital fan engagement platform “Socios.com” (“Platform”).

The Platform is operated by Socios Services Limited, a limited liability company incorporated in Malta with company registration number C91496 (“Operator”). The Platform, accessible via mobile application, web app, or any other medium at the sole discretion of the Operator, enables its users to create a personal user account to buy, access, sell, and use blockchain-based assets that are generated and sold by third parties. The Operator has integrated the Chiliz Wallet API to enable its users to access their Chiliz Wallet from within the Platform. The use and/or access to the Platform is subject to a separate contractual relationship with the Operator.

You may become the User if you are a natural person. For clarity, the Custodian does not provide services to legal entities with all possible legal forms of such entities. If during the provision of services, it is identified that a legal entity might be involved in the provision of the services from the User’s side, the Custodian shall be entitled to deactivate the Chiliz Wallet  with immediate effect.   

By accepting these Chiliz Wallet Terms and making use of the Chiliz Wallet, the User understands and acknowledges that these Chiliz Wallet Terms are binding between the User and the Custodian only and that the Operator is not a party to these Terms. This means, in particular, that the Operator does not operate the Chiliz Wallet in which the Chiliz Tokens are held, and does not assume any responsibility or liability with regard to the subject matter described herein.

 

2. CUSTODIAN SERVICES

 

2.1. OPERATION OF CHILIZ WALLET

 

2.1.1. Overview

 

The Chiliz Wallet is a custodial blockchain wallet that enables the User to hold Chiliz Tokens designated with the unique ticker $CHZ only. The Chiliz Wallet does not enable the User to hold Ether (ETH) or other blockchain-based assets that are compatible with the Ethereum blockchain.

 

2.1.2. Chiliz Wallet API

 

The Chiliz Wallet is a backend-only application that is operated by the Custodian. Since the Chiliz Wallet does not have a dedicated user interface, the Custodian has created a private API (“Chiliz Wallet API”) that allows selected third parties to integrate the Chiliz Wallet into their own applications and platforms. By accepting these Chiliz Wallet Terms, the User acknowledges that the Chiliz Wallet can only be accessed via third-party applications and platforms (“Supported Platform(s)”) and that the Custodian does not guarantee that any third party will integrate, or continue to integrate, the Chiliz Wallet API into their Supported Platform.

 

2.1.3. Access via Platform

 

Since the Platform is currently the only Supported Platform that has integrated the Chiliz Wallet API, the Chiliz Wallet can presently only be accessed via the Platform. To make use of the Chiliz Wallet as described below, the User is required to create a personal user account on the Platform (“Socios Account”). The creation and use of the Socios Account are subject to the separate terms and conditions of the Operator which are available HERE (“Platform Terms”).

 

2.1.4. Availability

 

The User acknowledges that access to the Chiliz Wallet will be available to the User as long as the User has access to the Supported Platforms, the operation of which the Custodian has no control over. Where the User has been denied or terminated access to the Supported Platforms, the User will be unable to access the Chiliz Wallet. In the latter case, where there are no legal or regulatory restrictions for delivery of the Chiliz Tokens to the User, the User may request that the Chiliz Tokens be transferred to a third party wallet.

 

2.2. CREATION OF CHILIZ WALLET

 

2.2.1. Overview

 

To make use of the Chiliz Wallet, the User must create an account with the Operator on the Platform.

 

2.2.2. Eligibility Requirements

 

To be eligible for a Chiliz Wallet, the User must meet the Socios Account registration and eligibility requirements as outlined in the Platform Terms (“Eligibility Requirements”).

 

2.3. PROVISION OF CHILIZ WALLET          

 

Each User’s Chiliz Wallet bears a blockchain address associated with it. The User information is collected upon the User creating a Socios Account, upon which occurrence a Chiliz Wallet is automatically assigned to the User. The Custodian reserves its right to request additional personal information from the User. If the User does not provide such additional personal information required by the Custodian to fulfill their respective contractual or regulatory obligations, the Custodian has the right to disable the access to the User’s Chiliz Wallet.

 

2.3.1. Chiliz Balance

 

The Chiliz Wallet displays the balance of Chiliz Tokens (“Chiliz Balance”) held by the User.

2.3.2. Transaction History

 

The Chiliz Wallet includes a transaction history that contains all incoming and outgoing transactions of the User (“Transaction History”). The User understands and acknowledges that the Transaction History is a complementary part of the Chiliz Wallet service. Therefore, the Custodian shall use commercially reasonable efforts to assure that the information contained in the Transaction History is accurate and reliable. However, errors can sometimes occur and such errors shall not be considered as a breach of the contractual service standard to be provided under the Chiliz Wallet Terms.

 

2.4. CUSTODIAL SERVICES

 

2.4.1. Overview

 

The User understands and acknowledges that the Custodian does not segregate the Chiliz Tokens of the different users on-chain but stores them on one or more public Ethereum addresses that are owned by the Custodian (“Storage Addresses”). The private keys (“PIK”) of the Storage Addresses are under the control of the Custodian and will not be communicated to the User under any circumstances.

 

2.4.2. Custodial Appointment

 

By accepting these Chiliz Wallet Terms, the User appoints the Custodian to act as the custodian of all Chiliz Tokens that are the subject of a transaction of the User. The Custodian accepts such appointments and the obligations, duties, and responsibilities set out in these Chiliz Wallet Terms.

 

2.4.3. Registration of the activity 

 

The Custodian is registered according to regulatory requirements of the Republic of Lithuania as a provider of virtual currency exchange and custodian virtual currency wallet services. The Custodian is not a licensed financial services provider and is not supervised by the Bank of Lithuania. From the prevention of money laundering and/or terrorist financing perspective, the Custodian is supervised by the Lithuanian Financial Crime Investigation Service under the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Lithuania. 

 

2.5. CHILIZ WALLET FUNDING AND TRANSFERS

 

2.5.1. The User may top-up the Chiliz Wallet in any of the following ways:

(i) transfer of Chiliz Tokens purchased from an authorized third-party exchange from an external wallet to the User’s Chiliz Wallet;

(ii) purchase of Chiliz Tokens on the Platform; or

(iii) obtain Chiliz Tokens through the redemption of vouchers or through the Token Hunt feature (as defined in the Platform Terms) which are automatically stored in the Chiliz Wallet.

2.5.2. The User is required to carefully follow the transfer instructions provided by the Custodian. The Custodian reserves the right to investigate the source of any Chiliz Token that is sent to the Chiliz Wallet and to determine, at its sole discretion, how to handle its disposition.

2.5.3. The Custodian reserves the right to deny or suspend the execution of a transaction request if such action is reasonably required to comply with any contractual or regulatory obligations.

 

2.5.4. Disclaimer

2.5.4.1 The Chiliz Wallet address cannot receive and/or hold Ether (ETH) and other blockchain-based assets that are compatible with the Ethereum blockchain or otherwise (“Unsupported Assets”), other than Chiliz Tokens. Under no circumstances should a User attempt to use the Chiliz Wallet to store, send, request or receive Unsupported Assets. The Custodian assumes no responsibility or liability in connection with any attempt of a User to use the Chiliz Wallet for Unsupported Assets. The User acknowledges and agrees that the Custodian bears no responsibility and is not liable for any Unsupported Asset that is sent to the Chiliz Wallet, including but not limited to, the loss of any such Unsupported Asset.

2.5.4.2 The User understands and acknowledges that all transactions are executed at the sole risk of the User. If the User enters the incorrect wallet address, both for an outgoing or an incoming transaction, the Chiliz Token will be irrevocably lost. The Custodian does not guarantee the identity of any receiver, requestee or other third party and the Custodian will have no liability or responsibility for ensuring that the information the User provides is accurate and complete. The Custodian shall not be responsible for incorrectly provided addresses and any damages or losses sustained by the User as a consequence thereof.

2.5.4.3 All transactions may be subject to limits which are outlined in these Terms and/or the Platform Terms.

2.6. SUPPORT SERVICES

The User shall be provided with support services that are required to access the Chiliz Wallet (“Support Services”). The Support Services may be availed of directly through the Platform in the indicated tabs found thereon or by email on support@socios.com. All Support Services are provided on a best effort basis. The Custodian does not guarantee that the Support Services will be available to the User free of errors or that the issue of the User will ultimately be solved by the Custodian.

 

3. USER IDENTIFICATION PROCEDURE

 

As part of its due diligence and user verification procedures, the Custodian may require the User to furnish such documents and information (and which may include photographs and/or videos evidencing the existence of such documents and information) so as to prove the User’s identity, residency, status, source of funds, source of wealth and/or eligibility to make use of the Chiliz Wallet. The Custodian reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to block a User’s access to the Chiliz Wallet if the User is unable to furnish such documents or information to the Custodian’s sole and absolute satisfaction or as required by any other service provider operating on the Platform. Only Users who have successfully satisfied the User verification procedure and due diligence procedures, to the Custodian’s sole and absolute satisfaction (or to the satisfaction of any other entity providing services on the Platform), shall be eligible to utilize the Chiliz Wallet.

The Custodian is permitted to retain the originals or copies of the documents and information used for the due diligence and user verification procedures for as long as permitted under the applicable statutory requirements.

 

4. CHILIZ WALLET SECURITY 

 

4.1. RESPONSIBILITY OF USER

 

The Custodian is committed to maintain the security of the Chiliz Wallet to safeguard the Chiliz Tokens that are held thereon and has implemented industry standard protection for this purpose. However, the User is fully responsible for the security of the access credentials that are required to get access to the Socios Account and hence the Chiliz Wallet, as well as the personal devices on which the Chiliz Wallet is accessible.

The User understands that all actions taken on the Chiliz Wallet will be deemed as actions that are performed by the User and acknowledges that the Custodian assumes no responsibility or liability for any loss or damages caused by the authorized or unauthorized use of the access credentials or personal devices of the User as outlined in the foregoing, unless the security of the access credentials is compromised due to the willful misconduct or gross negligence of the Custodian. If the User loses a personal device or is concerned that the account on the Socios Platform has been compromised, the User shall immediately notify the Custodian via reports@chiliz.com. The User may elect to set up an additional password to transfer Chiliz Tokens out of the Chiliz Wallet in order to increase security (“Withdrawal Password”). If the User loses the Withdrawal Password, the Custodian will assist to reset it however cannot guarantee when such reset process is completed and therefore, the Custodian does not assume liability for such direct or indirect losses occasioned by the User as a result of losing such Withdrawal Password.

 

4.2. DISCLAIMERS

 

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable laws, regulations, and rules, and except as otherwise provided in these Chiliz Wallet Terms, the Custodian hereby expressly disclaims its liability and shall in no case, unless the damage was caused by the Custodian intentionally or as a result of gross negligence, be liable to any person, including but not limited to, for:

 

4.3. SUSPENSION, LOCKING, FREEZING AND CONFISCATION

 

The Custodian explicitly reserves its right to suspend the access to the Chiliz Wallet of the User and/or lock, freeze or confiscate the Chiliz Tokens of the User, at any time and without notice, if the Custodian sees it necessary to protect the interest of the User, the Custodian or any third party offering services on the Platform, if any relevant authority so requests, or if the Custodian reasonably suspects:

If the Custodian suspends the Chiliz Wallet or locks the Chiliz Tokens of the User on a temporary basis, such suspension or lock may remain in effect until such time as the ground for such restriction is extinct and/or resolved to the Custodian’s full satisfaction.

The Custodian is not responsible for any losses, whether direct or indirect, that the User may incur as a result of the Custodian’s compliance with applicable laws and regulations or any writ of attachment, lien, levy, subpoena, warrant, or other legal order. The Custodian is further not liable for damages caused by or related to any suspension of the Chiliz Wallet and is not required to repay the purchase price or reimburse the market value for any Chiliz Tokens that are confiscated, frozen or handled in any other manner as described above by the Custodian.

 

5. USER OBLIGATIONS

 

5.1. COMPLIANCE WITH THE CHILIZ WALLET TERMS

 

The User is required to comply with these Chiliz Wallet Terms at all times. Any failure to comply with these Chiliz Wallet Terms or any provision herein qualifies as a breach of contract that allows the Custodian to terminate the Chiliz Wallet as described herein.

 

5.2. PAYMENT OF ADMINISTRATIVE FEE

 

Whilst the Custodian Services are provided to the User without charge, the Custodian reserves the right to charge a monthly administrative fee in the amount of five (5) EUR worth of Chiliz Tokens (or any amount as may determined and amended from time to time at the Custodian’s sole discretion) if the account on the Socios Platform of the User is inactive for a period of twelve (12) consecutive months (“Administrative Fee”). Prior to charging an Administrative Fee, the Custodian will notify the User via email and should the User not agree to the Administrative Fee, the User is permitted to discontinue using the Chiliz Wallet (along with any other services on the Platform). If the User logs in to the Socios Platform, the Custodian will immediately cease charging any further Administrative Fees.

 

6. RISKS RELATED TO CUSTODIAN SERVICES

 

There are various risks in connection with the Custodian Services. The User should carefully consider and evaluate each of the following risk factors and all other information contained in these Chiliz Wallet Terms before deciding to utilize the Chiliz Wallet. By accepting these Chiliz Wallet Terms, the User understands and acknowledges in particular the following risks:

Third Party Risks: The Custodian collaborates with third parties in order to provide the User with access to the Chiliz Wallet. The User understands and acknowledges that there is no guarantee that any third party will integrate, or continue to integrate, the Chiliz Wallet API.

Risk of Software Weaknesses: The User understands and acknowledges that complex software such as the Chiliz Wallet are never entirely free from defects, errors, bugs, and security vulnerabilities, and that the Custodian therefore does not warrant that the Chiliz Wallet will be free from defects, errors, and bugs.

Risk of Transaction Verification: The User understands and acknowledges that the transfer of Chiliz Tokens may be delayed or not be executed due to the transaction volume on the Ethereum blockchain, mining attacks, and/or similar events.

Risk of Attacks: The User understands and acknowledges that, as with other DLT networks, the Ethereum blockchain is susceptible to attacks, including but not limited to, denial of service attacks, exploits of consensus nodes, and byzantine attacks on the consensus nodes. Any successful attack presents a risk to the Chiliz Tokens, expected proper execution and sequencing of Chiliz Tokens transactions, and expected proper execution and sequencing of contract computations.

Risk of Upgrade to Ethereum 2.0: The User understands and acknowledges that the Ethereum community is currently planning an upgrade of the Ethereum blockchain to Ethereum 2.0 and that as part of this upgrade, the Ethereum blockchain may suffer setbacks which may cause, inter alia, a complete loss of Chiliz Tokens.

Regulatory Risk: The User understands and acknowledges that DLT technology allows for new forms of interaction and that certain jurisdictions may apply existing regulations or introduce new regulations that may result in a termination of the Custodian Services or a complete loss of all Chiliz Tokens.

Risk of Loss of Private Key: If Chiliz Tokens purchased from the Custodian are transferred to an external Ethereum address, they can only be accessed by using a compatible wallet with a combination of the User’s account information and private key. The User understands and acknowledges that if his/her private key pertaining to the compatible wallet gets lost or stolen, the Chiliz Tokens thereon will be unrecoverable and permanently lost.

The User understands and acknowledges that the risks listed above are borne exclusively by the User, that the User cannot pass on the consequences of a realization of these risks to the Custodian, the Operator, or any other third party, and that the purchase price or the value of the Chiliz Tokens held in the Chiliz Wallet will not be refunded or reimbursed to the User if any of these risks are realized.
