15.1. Neither of these Terms nor the Digital Twins, nor any information or publicity in relation to these, is intended to be provided to any person in any jurisdiction or territory where this activity would require a registration, approval or any other similar obligation to be completed. By accepting or dealing in the Digital Twins, you confirm that you are able to do so in accordance with these Terms and Applicable Law. It is your responsibility to take advice from local legal, tax and other advisers to ensure that your dealing in Digital Twins does not constitute a breach of Applicable Law as applicable to you. If you have any doubt about this, you confirm that you have obtained appropriate legal advice to confirm that it is the case.

Anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing requirements

15.2. You will at all times:

15.2.1. provide the OpenChrono Group with any information the OpenChrono Group may request for the purposes of verifying your identity (including if relevant that of your beneficial owners) and checks required in relation to prevention of money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud, or any other financial crime and permit the OpenChrono Group to keep a record of such information. This includes completing any verification procedures and customer identity checks that the OpenChrono Group may require; and

15.2.2. authorise the OpenChrono Group to make any inquiries, whether directly or through third parties, that the OpenChrono Group considers necessary to verify your identity or to protect you and/or the OpenChrono Group against fraud or other financial crime, and to take any action the OpenChrono Group reasonably deems necessary based on the results of such inquiries.

15.3. You acknowledge that your access to Digital Twins and Assets may be altered, on an ongoing basis, as a result of the information provided under this Clause 11. You also acknowledge that in carrying out inquiries, your personal information may be disclosed by the OpenChrono Group to identity verification, credit reference and fraud prevention or financial crime agencies and that these agencies may respond to inquiries in full. This is an identity check only and should have no adverse effect on your credit rating.

Tax evasion

15.4. You will ensure that none of you, nor any person acting on your behalf, shall, by any act or omission, commit, cause, facilitate or contribute to the commission by any person of a tax evasion offence or facilitation of a tax evasion offence. For these purposes, a tax evasion offence includes cheating a public revenue authority or being knowingly concerned in, or in taking steps with a view to, the fraudulent evasion of tax, and tax includes duties and social security contributions.


15.5. You will not, and will take reasonable steps to ensure that your agents and delegates will not, do any action or inaction which would constitute you or us committing any offence under any Applicable Law in relation to bribery, corruption or sanctions.


16.1. In the event that we appoint another entity within the OpenChrono Group to take over our rights and obligations under these Terms (the “New Entity”), we may transfer by way of novation our rights and obligations under these Terms to the New Entity and you consent to such novation. As soon as reasonably practicable following such novation, we shall notify you of the effective date of such novation. From such effective date, all references in these Terms to “OpenChrono”, the “Company”, “we”, “us”, or “our” shall be deemed to be references to the New Entity.


Entire agreement and legal status

17.1. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and OpenChrono Group with respect to its subject matter and substitutes and supersedes any and all previous written or oral statements between you and OpenChrono Group. As such:

17.1.1. neither Party has entered into these Terms in reliance upon, and will have no remedy in respect of, any misrepresentation, representation or statement which is not expressly set out in these Terms;

17.1.2. the only remedies available for any misrepresentation or breach of any representation or statement which was made prior to entry into these Terms and which is expressly set out in these Terms will be for breach of contract; and

17.1.3. except as set out in these Terms, we do not make or give any representation or warranty as to the accuracy, completeness, currency, correctness, reliability, integrity, quality, fitness for purpose or originality of any information provided regarding the Digital Twins, Assets and the Platform, and, to the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Law, all implied warranties, conditions or other terms of any kind are excluded and we accept no liability for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of you or anyone else relying on such information.


17.2. No waiver of any part of these Terms by us shall be effective unless in writing and signed by us. No waiver of any provision in these Terms will be deemed a waiver of a subsequent breach of such provision or a waiver of a similar provision. In addition, a waiver of any breach or a failure to enforce any term or condition of these Terms will not in any way affect, limit, or waive our rights hereunder at any time to enforce strict compliance thereafter with every term and condition of these Terms.

17.3. No other document or communication may modify or add any additional obligations or covenants on us beyond those set forth in these Terms, unless we clearly, specifically and explicitly state otherwise in that document.

Delegation and assignment

17.4. We may at our sole discretion, assign our rights and/or delegate our duties under these Terms and engage subcontractors to perform obligations on our behalf, so long as we take due skill and care in selecting and overseeing our delegees.

17.5. You may not assign, transfer, delegate, charge or create third party interests over any of your rights or responsibilities in relation to these Terms or the Digital Twins, nor may you agree to do any of the same, if such impacts your ability to meet your obligations to us under these Terms.

Illegality and severability

17.6. Each of the provisions of these Terms are separate, severable and enforceable. If any portion of these Terms is found by any court or body or authority of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, unlawful, void or unenforceable, in whole or in part, such provision shall be ineffective solely to the extent of such determination of invalidity or unenforceability without affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other manner and without affecting the remaining provisions of these Terms, which shall continue to be in full force and effect. Also, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith to agree a replacement for the ineffective provision that, to the greatest extent possible, achieves the intended commercial result of the original provision.


17.7. Dealing in Digital Twins does not create any form of partnership, joint venture or any other similar relationship between the Parties, and we do not owe you any resulting fiduciary duties. Nothing in these Terms is intended to authorise either Party to act as agent for the other, and neither Party shall have the authority to act in the name of or on behalf of or otherwise to bind the other in any way (including the making of any representation or warranty, the assumption of any obligation or liability and the exercise of any right or power).

Third parties

17.8. This clause is subject to Clause 17 and the Parties intend that persons within the OpenChrono Group shall have the right to enforce any rights granted to them under these Terms pursuant to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 (the "1999 Act"). Save as aforesaid, the Parties do not intend that the provisions of these Terms shall be enforceable by virtue of the 1999 Act or otherwise by any person not a Party to it. Notwithstanding this Clause 17.8, the consent any third party is not required for any variation (including any release or compromise of any liability) or termination of these Terms.


17.9. If you are a consumer, please note that these Terms, their subject matter, the Digital Twins and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with them shall be governed by English law. You and we both agree that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with these Terms, its subject matter, and the Digital Twins. However, nothing in these Terms will override any mandatory laws of the country in which you have your usual place of residence or limit your legal rights to bring actions against us or to require proceedings take place in the country in which you have your usual place of residence.

17.10. If you are a business, these Terms, their subject matter, the Digital Twins and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with them or their subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English law. The Parties agree that the courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any such dispute or claim (including non-contractual disputes or claims).


Certain Risks Relating to the Digital Twins

Dealing in digital assets involves a high degree of risk, and, therefore, should be undertaken only if you are capable of evaluating the risks involved and able to bear the risks of a complete loss of all capital used to deal in them. Digital Twins are linked to physical items, which may help reduce some of the risks of this type of digital asset (as in theory they should hold the value of the linked physical item, however this does not mean that they are without risk). You should carefully consider the risks described below before dealing in Digital Twins. It should be noted that the list of risk factors below is not intended to be exhaustive.

Important Note: As noted elsewhere in these Terms, the Digital Twins are not being structured or sold as securities nor any other form of regulated investment product. Accordingly, there has not been any consideration as to whether Digital Twins are a suitable or an appropriate thing for you to acquire. We expressly disclaim any and all responsibility for any direct or consequential loss or damage of any kind whatsoever arising directly or indirectly from: (i) reliance on any information contained in this Schedule 1, (ii) any error, omission or inaccuracy in any such information or (iii) any action resulting from such information.

By participating in these Terms, or by otherwise accepting, holding and / or using Digital Twins, you expressly acknowledge and assume the following risks, and the OpenChrono Group shall not be liable should they materialise:

1. Risk of losing access to Digital Twins due to actions of third parties, loss of private key(s) or seed phrases or loss of wallet(s)

A private key, or a combination of private keys, is necessary to deal in Digital Twins. Accordingly, loss of requisite private key(s) associated with your Digital Twins will result in loss of such Digital Twins. Moreover, any third party that gains access to such private key(s), including by gaining access to login credentials of a hosted wallet service you use, may be able to misappropriate your Digital Twins (and you may not be able to get them back). Additionally, a third-party may also deliberately or accidentally cause you to sign a transaction which has the effect of executing code enabling the misappropriation of your Digital Twins (and you may not be able to get them back).

You are responsible for ensuring that you properly store your Digital Twins. Any errors or malfunctions caused by or otherwise related to the wallet you us to receive and store Digital Twins, including your own failure to properly maintain or use such wallet as provided by the Wallet Provider, may result in your loss of your Digital Twins.

2. Regulatory risks

Regulation of digital assets such as the Digital Twins, as well as blockchain technologies, and digital asset exchanges is currently underdeveloped and likely to rapidly evolve. Regulation varies significantly between different jurisdictions and is subject to significant uncertainty. Regulators may in the future adopt laws, regulations, guidance or other actions that may severely impact the development, operations and growth of the Platform and the adoption and utility of Digital Twins. Failure by the OpenChrono Group or the Platform to comply with any Applicable Laws, some of which may not exist yet or are subject to interpretation and may be subject to change, could result in a variety of adverse consequences, including civil penalties and fines, which could have an adverse effect on the development, launch and/or operations of the Platform and the development and eventual value of Digital Twins.

If an entity within the OpenChrono Group is required to obtain a license, there is a risk that that entity may not be able to obtain it, either within a reasonable time period or at all, and the consequence of this will accordingly be to restrict the OpenChrono Group’s business and ability to issue Digital Twins.

3. Risks associated with the blockchain protocol

Because Digital Twins and the Platform are based on blockchain protocols, any malfunction, breakdown or abandonment of a blockchain protocol may have a material adverse effect on the Digital Twins and / or Platform. Moreover, advances in cryptography, or technical advances such as the development of quantum computing, could present risks to the Digital Twins and / or the Platform by rendering ineffective the cryptographic consensus mechanism that underpins the blockchain protocol.

4. Risk of hacking and software and security weaknesses

Hackers or other malicious groups or organisations may attempt to interfere with Digital Twins or Platform in a variety of ways, including malware attacks, denial of service attacks, consensus-based attacks, Sybil attacks, smurfing and spoofing, as well as attacks which overpower the consensus-based mechanism on which the blockchain in built and attacks which interfere with or otherwise cause nodes to malfunction (nodes are computers / hardware devices that help maintain the blockchain). There is also an inherent risk that the software and related technologies and theories we use could contain Viruses. Viruses could cause, inter alia, complete loss of Digital Twins, or could negatively affect the Platform.

5. Risks associated with uncertain regulations and enforcement actions

The regulatory status of the Digital Twins and distributed ledger technology is unclear or unsettled in many jurisdictions. It is difficult to predict how or whether regulatory agencies may apply existing regulation with respect to such technology and its applications, including the Platform and the Digital Twins. It is likewise difficult to predict how or whether legislatures or regulatory agencies may implement changes to law and regulation affecting distributed ledger technology and its applications, including the Platform and the Digital Twins. Regulatory actions could negatively impact the Platform and the Digital Twins in various ways, including, for purposes of illustration only, through a determination that Digital Twins are a regulated financial instrument that require registration or licensing. The OpenChrono Group may cease operations in a jurisdiction in the event that regulatory actions, or changes to law or regulation, make it illegal to operate in such jurisdiction, or commercially undesirable to obtain the necessary regulatory approval(s) to operate in such jurisdiction.

6. Liquidity risk

There is presently no established trading market for the Digital Twins. The OpenChrono Group can provide no assurance that any third-party exchanges will accept any attempted listing of the Digital Twins or maintain the listing if accepted, or that any trading market will be successfully developed or launched. Moreover, even if such a market is established, any such trading market may not be widely adopted, may have limited users, and could be subject to significant competition. As a result, the OpenChrono Group can provide no assurance as to the liquidity of the Digital Twins on any such market, and the value of the Digital Twins over time may experience extreme volatility or depreciate in full (noting that the Digital Twins may still be redeemable for the relevant Asset).

7. The prices of digital assets are extremely volatile

Fluctuations in the price of digital assets could materially and adversely affect the OpenChrono Group’s business and the Platform, and the Digital Twins may also be subject to significant price volatility. The prices of digital assets have historically been subject to dramatic fluctuations and are highly volatile, and the market price of the Digital Twins may also be highly volatile.

Several factors may influence the market price, if any, of the Digital Twins, including, but not limited to: (i) the ability (if any) of the Digital Twins to trade on a secondary market; (ii) global digital asset and token supply; (iii) global digital asset and token demand; (iv) general expectations with respect to the rate of inflation, interest rates and exchange rates; (v) changes in the software, software requirements or hardware requirements underlying digital assets; (vi) interruptions in service from or failures of digital asset and token exchanges on which digital assets are traded; (vii) investment and trading activities of large purchasers, including private and registered funds, that may directly or indirectly invest in Digital Twins or other digital assets; (viii) monetary policies of governments, trade restrictions, currency devaluations and revaluations; (ix) regulatory measures, if any, that affect the use of digital assets and changes in Applicable Law; (x) global or regional political, economic or financial events and situations; and (xi) expectations among digital asset participants that the value of Digital Twins or other digital assets will soon change.

A decrease in the price of a single digital asset may cause volatility in the entire digital asset and token industry and may affect other digital assets including the Digital Twins. For example, a security breach that affects purchaser or user confidence in Bitcoin or Ether may affect the industry as a whole and may also cause the price of the Digital Twins and other digital assets to fluctuate. Such volatility in the price of the Digital Twins may result in significant loss over a short period of time.

8. Digital Twins may not be classified as unregulated Digital Twins

Although we intend for the Digital Twins to be classified as unregulated Digital Twins, the regulatory position of digital assets is subject to change. This may, at a later date, cause us to classify the Digital Twins as a regulated investment, in which case the Digital Twins may be subject to restrictions on resale and transfer.

9. General economic risks

Please be aware that the value of the Digital Twins can fall as well as rise. If you buy Digital Twins, you may not get back the full amount you spent on the Digital Twins, or anything at all. The past performance of other digital assets is not necessarily a guide to the future performance of Digital Twins.

10. Unanticipated risks

Digital assets such as the Digital Twins are a relatively new and untested technology. In addition to the risks included in this Schedule ‎1, there are other risks associated with your acceptance, holding and use of Digital Twins, including those that we cannot reasonably foresee.

Additional risks may also materialise as unanticipated variations or combinations of the risks discussed above in this Schedule 1.

2. SCHEDULE 2 - Fees

All fees are inclusive of any applicable tax.
