1.1 Iconomi.index product is a cryptographic token, developed by Iconomi, and published in Ethereum public blockchain. Iconomi.index is a software product as its content presents a source code, including elements of a smart contract and application features.
1.2 The main feature of Iconomi.index is that it saves time and transaction costs to those blockchain users, who wish to obtain cryptographic tokens from different public blockchains.
1.3 Iconomi.index is not an investment product and any action, notice, communication, message, decision, managerial act, or omission of the mentioned, is not an investment advice and shall not be understood and interpreted as such. Any such content, provided by Iconomi either by integration in the Iconomi.index source code or by publishing through any means of communication, shall be regarded solely as statement of facts or observation and in no case as investment advice. Iconomi.index is not a security. Iconomi gives no guarantees as to the value of the Iconomi.index tokens and explicitly warns users that there is no reason to believe that Iconomi.index tokens will increase in value, and they might also decrease in value.
1.4 You agree and accept, that you are acquiring Iconomi.index tokens for your own personal use as technical means to acquiring tokens from different blockchains simultaneously and for your personal utility and not for investment or financial purposes. You also agree that you don’t consider Iconomi.index tokens as security and you understand that Iconomi.index tokens may lose all their value and that you are not acquiring Iconomi.index tokens as an investment.
1.5 Iconomi.index is developed and run by Iconomi. Iconomi reserves its right to charge its fees for developing and running Iconomi.index in accordance with the Iconomi.index whitepaper.
1.6 This document or any other document, produced and signed by Iconomi, its website and the Iconomi.index service as such do not constitute an offer or solicitation to sell and shall not be construed in this way, and it may only be construed as an invitation to give offer, in all cases for purchase of Iconomi.index service as software.
1.7 Iconomi.index (tokens) is/are not cryptocurrency, regardless of what legal meaning word “cryptocurrency” has, unless and to the extent the meaning of Iconomi.index tokens are described and defined by these terms and conditions. Any potential ability to exchange Iconomi.index tokens for fiat money is out of scope of sphere of influence of Iconomi and is not a service, being provided by Iconomi.
2. Acquisition of Iconomi.index tokens
2.1 You agree to purchase and we agree to sell, on the terms set forth herein, Iconomi.index tokens. Your purchase is final. We will not provide any refund of the purchase price under any circumstances.
2.2 After transfer of consideration for purchase of Iconomi.index tokens, the tokens will be automatically transferred to your Iconomi wallet or other wallet, should you indicate so in your profile settings.
2.3 Iconomi does not provide an option to acquire Iconomi.index tokens for payment of fiat money.
3.1 You understand that Iconomi.index token, blockchain technology, the Ethereum protocol, Ether and other associated and related technologies are new and untested and outside of Iconomi’s control and adverse changes in market forces or the technology, broadly construed, will excuse Iconomi’s performance under this agreement.
3.2 In addition to the above, you also acknowledge that you have been warned of the following risks, associated with the website and products offered thereto and in particular with Iconomi.index token.
(a) Legal risks regarding securities regulations
There is a risk that in some jurisdictions Iconomi.index might be considered to be a security, or that it might be considered to be a security in the future. Iconomi.index has avoided making Iconomi.index tokens available to natural and legal persons from such jurisdictions, however Iconomi does not give warranties or guarantees that Iconomi.index token is not a security also in all jurisdictions, where it was made available. Each user of Iconomi.index tokens shall bear its own legal or financial consequences of Iconomi.index being considered a security in their respective jurisdiction.
Acquiring cryptographic tokens in possession and exchanging them for other cryptographic tokens will most likely continue to be scrutinized by various regulatory bodies around the world, which has so far given mixed reactions and regulatory impact. The legal ability of Iconomi to provide Iconomi.index tokens could in some jurisdictions be eliminated by future regulation or legal actions. In the event, it turns out with a high degree certainty that Iconomi.index tokens are not legal in certain jurisdiction, Iconomi will either a) cease operations in that jurisdiction, or b) adjust Iconomi.index tokens in a way to comply with the regulation should that be possible and viable.
(b) Risks associated with the Ethereum protocol
Iconomi.index token is based upon the Ethereum protocol. As such, any malfunction, unintended function or unexpected functioning of the Ethereum protocol may cause the Iconomi.index token to malfunction or function in an unexpected or unintended manner. Ether, the native unit of account of the Ethereum Protocol may itself lose value in ways similar to Iconomi.index token, and also other ways. More information about the Ethereum protocol is available at http://www.ethereum.org
(c) Risks associated with users’ credentials
Any third party that gains access to the user’s login credentials for the website or private keys may be able to dispose of the user’s Iconomi.index tokens. To minimize this risk, the purchaser should guard against unauthorized access to their electronic devices.
(d) Risk of unfavourable regulatory action in one or more jurisdictions
Blockchain technologies have been the subject of scrutiny by various regulatory bodies around the world. The functioning of the Ethereum network and associated blockchain networks and Iconomi.index could be impacted by one or more regulatory inquiries or actions, including but not limited to restrictions on the use or possession of digital tokens like Iconomi.index, which could impede or limit their existence, permissibility of their use and possession, and their value.
(e) Risk of theft and hacking
Hackers or other groups or organizations may attempt to interfere with your token wallet, the website or the availability of Iconomi.index tokens in any number of ways, including without limitation denial of service attacks, Sybil attacks, spoofing, smurfing, malware attacks, or consensus-based attacks.
(f) Risk of security weaknesses in the Iconomi.index source code or any associated software and/or infrastructure
There is a risk that the Iconomi.index, or other third parties may unintentionally introduce weaknesses or bugs into the Iconomi.index source code interfering with the use of or causing the loss of Iconomi.index tokens.
(g) Risk of weaknesses or exploitable breakthroughs in the field of cryptography
Advances in cryptography, or technical advances such as the development of quantum computers, could present risks to cryptocurrencies and the Ethereum platform and Iconomi.index, which could result in the theft or loss of Iconomi.index tokens.
(h) Risk of mining attacks
As with other decentralized cryptocurrencies, the Ethereum blockchain, which is used for the Iconomi.index, is susceptible to mining attacks, including but not limited to double-spend attacks, majority mining power attacks, “selfish-mining” attacks, and race condition attacks. Any successful attacks present a risk to the Iconomi.index, expected proper execution and sequencing of Iconomi.index, and expected proper execution and sequencing of Ethereum contract computations in general. Despite the efforts of Iconomi and Ethereum Foundation, the risk of known or novel mining attacks exists. Mining Attacks, as described above, may also target other blockchain networks, with which Iconomi.index interacts with and consequently Iconomi.index may be impacted also in that way to the extent, described above.
(i) Risk of low or no liquidity
Even though there are currently online service available, which enable possibility of exchange of cryptographic tokens between themselves, and also, some of them enable exchange of cryptographic tokens for fiat money, there are no warranties and/or guarantees given that Iconomi.index tokens will be subject to exchange for other cryptographic tokens and/or fiat money, and no guarantees are given whatsoever with the capacity (volume) of such potential exchange. It shall be explicitly cautioned, that such exchange, if any, might be subject to poorly-understood regulatory oversight, and Iconomi does not give any warranties in regard to any exchange services providers. Users might be exposed to fraud and failure
(j) Risk of loss of value
If the value of cryptographic tokens, which will be acquired by Iconomi.index fluctuates unfavourably, such fluctuations will also result in the value of Iconomi.index tokens, and their users might suffer loss in value of such acquired tokens. There might also be other reasons, not related to the value of cryptographic tokens, acquired by Iconomi.index, that would cause unfavourable fluctuations of the value of Iconomi.index token.
(k) Risk of uninsured losses
Unlike bank accounts or accounts at some other financial institutions, funds held using Iconomi.index or Ethereum network are entirely uninsured.
(l) Risk of malfunction in the Ethereum network or any other blockchain
It is possible that the Ethereum network or any other network, to which Iconomi.index is interacting with, malfunctions in an unfavourable way, including but not limited to one that results in the loss of Iconomi.index, or loss of information concerning any other cryptographic tokens, which Iconomi.index acquires.
(m) Unanticipated risks
Cryptocurrencies and blockchains are new and untested technology. In addition to the risks set forth here, there are risks that Iconomi cannot foresee and it is unreasonable to believe that such risks could have been foreseeable. Risks may further materialize as unanticipated.
3.3 Iconomi.index tokens are provided “as is”.
