ARTICLE SEVEN: RISKS
TKZ TOKENS MAY HAVE NO VALUE. BUYER MAY LOSE ALL AMOUNTS PAID. Buyer has carefully reviewed, acknowledges, understands and assumes the following risks, as well as all other risks associated with the TKZ Tokens (including those not discussed herein), all of which could render the TKZ Tokens worthless or of little value:
7.1. No Rights, Functionality or Features. TKZ Tokens have no rights, uses, purpose, attributes, functionalities or features, express or implied. TKZ Tokens do not entitle holders to participate on the Tokenza Platform, even if the Tokenza Platform is launched and the Tokenza Platform’s development is finished and the Tokenza Platform is adopted and implemented.
7.2. Tokenza Platform. Buyer should not purchase TKZ Tokens in reliance on the Tokenza Platform because TKZ Tokens may not be usable on the Tokenza Platform and do not entitle Buyer to anything with respect to the Tokenza Platform.
7.3. Purchase Price Risk. Tokenza reserves the right to change the price of the TKZ Token for any reason. Tokenza reserves the right to change the duration of the TKZ Distribution Period for any reason, including, without limitation, bugs in the TKZ Distribution Contract or the unavailability of the Website or other unforeseen procedural or security issues.
7.4. Blockchain Delay Risk. On the Ethereum blockchain, timing of block production is determined by proof of work so block production can occur at random times. For example, ETH contributed to the TKZ Distribution Contract in the final seconds of a distribution period may not get included for that period. Buyer acknowledges and understands that the Ethereum blockchain may not include the Buyer’s transaction at the time Buyer expects and Buyer may not receive TKZ Tokens the same day Buyer sends ETH.
7.5. Ethereum Blockchain. The Ethereum blockchain is prone to periodic congestion during which transactions can be delayed or lost. Individuals may also intentionally spam the Ethereum network in an attempt to gain an advantage in purchasing cryptographic tokens. Buyer acknowledges and understands that Ethereum block producers may not include Buyer’s transaction when Buyer wants or Buyer’s transaction may not be included at all.
7.6. Ability to Transact or Resell. Buyer may be unable to sell or otherwise transact in TKZ Tokens at any time, or for the price Buyer paid. By using the TKZ Distribution Contract or by purchasing TKZ Tokens, Buyer acknowledges, understands and agrees that: (a) TKZ Tokens may have no value; (b) there is no guarantee or representation of liquidity for the TKZ Tokens; and (c) the Tokenza Parties are not and shall not be responsible for or liable for the market value of TKZ Tokens, the transferability and/or liquidity of TKZ Tokens and/or the availability of any market for TKZ Tokens through third parties or otherwise.
7.7. Token Security. TKZ Tokens may be subject to expropriation and or/theft. Hackers or other malicious groups or organizations may attempt to interfere with the TKZ Distribution Contract or the TKZ Tokens 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 Ethereum platform rests on open source software and TKZ Tokens are based on open source software, there is the risk that Ethereum smart contracts may contain intentional or unintentional bugs or weaknesses which may negatively affect the TKZ Tokens or result in the loss of Buyer’s TKZ Tokens, the loss of Buyer’s ability to access or control Buyer’s TKZ Tokens or the loss of ETH in Buyer’s account. In the event of such a software bug or weakness, there may be no remedy and holders of TKZ Tokens are not guaranteed any remedy, refund or compensation.
7.8. Access to Private Keys. TKZ Tokens purchased by Buyer may be held by Buyer in Buyer’s digital wallet or vault, which requires a private key, or a combination of private keys, for access. Accordingly, loss of requisite private key(s) associated with Buyer’s digital wallet or vault storing TKZ Tokens will result in loss of such TKZ Tokens, access to Buyer’s TKZ Token balance and/or any initial balances in blockchains created by third parties. Moreover, any third party that gains access to such private key(s), including by gaining access to login credentials of a hosted wallet or vault service Buyer uses, may be able to misappropriate Buyer’s TKZ Tokens. Company is not responsible for any such losses.
7.9. TKZ Tokens May Become Non-Transferable. Buyer acknowledges and understands that TKZ Tokens may become non-transferrable at any time. Buyer may no longer be able to map a public key to Buyer’s account and Buyer may not be able to transfer TKZ Tokens on the Ethereum blockchain. Cryptocurrency exchanges may also be unable to accept new deposits or authorize withdrawals of TKZ Tokens.
7.10. New Technology. The Tokenza Platform and all of the matters set forth in the White Paper are new and untested. The Tokenza Platform might not be capable of completion, implementation or adoption. It is possible that no service will be ever be launched and there may never be an operational Tokenza Platform. Buyer should not rely on the Tokenza Platform or the ability to receive tokens associated with the Tokenza Platform in the future. Even if the Tokenza Platform is completed, implemented and adopted, it might not function as intended, and any tokens associated with the Tokenza Platform may not have functionality that is desirable or valuable. Also, technology is changing rapidly, so the TKZ Tokens and any tokens transferable on the Tokenza Platform may become outdated.
7.11. Reliance on Third-Parties. Even if completed, the Tokenza Platform will rely, in whole or partly, on third parties to adopt and implement it and to continue to develop, supply, and otherwise support it. There is no assurance or guarantee that those third parties will complete their work, properly carry out their obligations, or otherwise meet anyone’s needs, all of might have a material adverse effect on the Tokenza Platform.
7.12. Failure to Map a Public Key to Buyer’s Account. Failure of Buyer to map a public key to Buyer’s account may result in third parties being unable to recognize Buyer’s TKZ Token balance on the Ethereum blockchain.
7.13. Exchange & Counterparty Risks. If Buyer sends ETH to the TKZ Distribution Contract from an exchange or an account that Buyer does not control, pursuant to the TKZ Distribution Contract, TKZ Tokens will be allocated to the account that has sent ETH; therefore, Buyer may never receive or be able to recover Buyer’s TKZ Tokens. Furthermore, if Buyer chooses to maintain or hold TKZ Tokens through a cryptocurrency exchange or other third party, Buyer’s TKZ Tokens may be stolen or lost. In addition, third parties may not recognize Buyer’s claim to any derivative tokens if and when launched by third parties according to the distribution rules set in the Tokenza Platform. By using the TKZ Distribution Contract and/or by purchasing TKZ Tokens, Buyer acknowledges and agrees that Buyer sends ETH to the TKZ Distribution Contract through an exchange account and/or holds TKZ Tokens on a cryptocurrency exchange or with another third party at Buyer’s own and sole risk.
7.14. Changes to the Tokenza Platform. The Tokenza Platform is still under development and may undergo significant changes over time. Although Company intends for the Tokenza Platform to have the features and specifications set forth in the White Paper, Company may make changes to such features and specifications for any number of reasons, and any party that adopts the Tokenza Platform and launches the Tokenza Platform also may make changes, any of which may mean that the Tokenza Platform does not meet Buyer’s expectations.
7.15. Risk of Alternative Services based on Tokenza Platform. The Tokenza Platform could be licensed under an open source license at any time after the end of the TKZ Distribution Period; If Tokenza Platform become licensed under an open source license, it is possible somebody may not respect the Tokenza Platform copyright or may modify the Tokenza Platform after it has been released under an open source license. Therefore, it is possible for someone to utilize the Tokenza Platform to build and launch blockchain protocols using a token distribution other than the one intended for the TKZ Tokens pursuant to the Tokenza Platform both prior to or after the Tokenza Platform has become licensed as open source.
7.16. Project Completion. The development of the Tokenza Platform may be abandoned for a number of reasons, including, but not limited to, lack of interest from the public, lack of funding, lack of commercial success or prospects, or departure of key personnel.
7.17. Lack of Interest. Even if the Tokenza Platform is finished and adopted and the TKZ Platform is launched, the ongoing success of the Tokenza Platform relies on the interest and participation of third parties like freelancers and project owners. There can be no assurance or guarantee that there will be sufficient interest or participation in the Tokenza Platform.
7.18. Uncertain Regulatory Framework. The regulatory status of cryptographic tokens, digital assets and blockchain technology is unclear or unsettled in many jurisdictions. It is difficult to predict how or whether governmental authorities will regulate such technologies. It is likewise difficult to predict how or whether any governmental authority may make changes to existing laws, regulations and/or rules that will affect cryptographic tokens, digital assets, blockchain technology and its applications. Such changes could negatively impact the Tokenza Platform and/or TKZ Tokens in various ways, including, for example, through a determination that TKZ Tokens are regulated financial instruments that require registration. Company may cease the distribution of TKZ Tokens, the development of the Tokenza Platform or cease operations in a jurisdiction in the event that governmental actions make it unlawful or commercially undesirable to continue to do so.
7.19. Risk of Government Action. As noted above, the industry in which Company operates is new, and may be subject to heightened oversight and scrutiny, including investigations or enforcement actions. There can be no assurance that governmental authorities will not examine the operations of Company and/or pursue enforcement actions against Company. Such governmental activities may or may not be the result of targeting Company in particular. All of this may subject Company to judgments, settlements, fines or penalties, or cause Company to restructure its operations and activities or to cease offering certain products or services, all of which could harm Company’s reputation or lead to higher operational costs, which may in turn have a material adverse effect on the TKZ Tokens and/or the development of the Tokenza Platform.
ARTICLE EIGHT: LIMITATION OF LIABILITY AND INDEMNIFICATION
8.1. Limitation of Liability. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Buyer disclaims any right or cause of action against the Tokenza Parties of any kind in any jurisdiction that would give rise to any Damages whatsoever, on the part of any Tokenza Party. Each of the Tokenza Parties shall not be liable to Buyer for any type of Damages, even if and notwithstanding the extent a Tokenza Party has been advised of the possibility of such Damages. Buyer agrees not to seek any refund, compensation or reimbursement from a Tokenza Party, regardless of the reason, and regardless of whether the reason is identified in this Agreement.

8.4. Release. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Buyer releases the Tokenza Parties from responsibility, liability, claims, demands, and/or Damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown (including, but not limited to, claims of negligence), arising out of or related to disputes between Buyer and the acts or omissions of third parties.
a. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Buyer will indemnify, defend and hold harmless and reimburse the Tokenza Parties from and against any and all actions, proceedings, claims, Damages, demands and actions (including without limitation fees and expenses of counsel), incurred by a Tokenza Party arising from or relating to: (i) Buyer’s purchase or use of TKZ Tokens; (ii) Buyer’s responsibilities or obligations under this Agreement; (iii) Buyer’s breach of or violation of this Agreement; (iv) any inaccuracy in any representation or warranty of Buyer; (v) Buyer’s violation of any rights of any other person or entity; and/or (vi) any act or omission of Buyer that is negligent, unlawful or constitutes willful misconduct.
b. Company reserves the right to exercise sole control over the defense, at Buyer’s expense, of any claim subject to indemnification under this Section 8.5. This indemnity is in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other indemnities set forth in a written agreement between Buyer and Company.
