These terms and conditions (the "T&Cs") govern the basis on which you, ("you" or the "Contributor"), can make a contribution (a "Contribution") to TriForce Tokens ltd ("we" or "TFT") in exchange for the "FORCE" cryptocurrency created by TFT.
These T&Cs also set out the procedure for the subsequent allocation to you of transferable cryptographic blockchain-based digital assets, each called a TriForce Tokens ("FORCE").
You need to read these T&Cs carefully, and should keep a copy for future reference.
We have defined terms in these T&Cs as they are used. However please note the following definitions:
Fiat Money: This means fiat money that is money made legal tender by a government decree.
FORCE: This is a transferable cryptographic blockchain-based digital asset. FORCE does not represent or constitute any ownership right or stake, share or security or equivalent right in or relating to FORCE, the TFT Platform, and/or any software, any public or private company, corporation, entity or property; and
TFT Platform: This platform is planned to be developed from the proceeds of the contributions to us.
TFT Wallet: is the initial repository for FORCE.
Software: this refers to the underlying software application and software platform TFT is based on, including the TFT Platform the TFT-Wallet and the Ethereum Network, as well as any other relevant software, technology and technical concepts.
2.1) You should only make a Contribution in return for FORCE if you are happy with the risks of doing so. We are undertaking a relatively new type of fundraising. There may, therefore, be unforeseen risks of which we are currently unaware.
2.2) The usual risks involved in making this type of Contribution, and with the allocation, use and ownership of FORCE are set out below. You should read these carefully and only make a Contribution if you are comfortable with accepting these risks:
2.2.1) Risk of software weaknesses: The Software is still in an early development stage and unproven. This means that:
220.127.116.11) we cannot warranty that the process for receipt, use and ownership of FORCE will be uninterrupted or error-free; and
18.104.22.168) there is an inherent risk that the software and related technologies and theories we use could contain weaknesses, vulnerabilities or bugs ("Glitches"). Glitches could cause, inter alia, complete loss of FORCE and/or Ethereum Network.
2.2.2) Regulatory risk: crypto-currency and the underlying blockchain technology is currently subject to relatively light regulatory oversight. This is, however, subject to change. In the future, certain regulators or other governmental authorities may impose or extend regulations which could apply to either of these technologies. These regulations may have a negative impact on the current set-up of TFT or the underlying Ethereum Network on which TFT is based. These regulations could result in substantial modifications of the Software. There is also a risk that regulatory developments could cause their termination and the consequential loss of your FORCE.
2.2.3) Risk of abandonment / lack of success: The allocation of FORCE and the development of the TFT Platform may be abandoned for a number of reasons, including:
22.214.171.124) lack of interest from industry;
126.96.36.199) lack of interest from the public;
188.8.131.52) lack of funding; or
184.108.40.206) lack of commercial success or prospects (for example, as a result of competing projects).
This means that, even if the TFT Platform is partially or fully developed and launched, you may not receive any functionality through the FORCE you hold.
2.2.4) Risk of theft: The Software may be attacked by hackers or other individuals. If successful, such attacks could result in the theft or loss of FORCE, or the theft or loss of your Contributions, as well as impact our ability to develop and launch the TFT Platform.
2.2.5) Risk of blockchain mining attacks: As with other public blockchainbased systems that depend on independent miners, the Ethereum Network may be susceptible to mining attacks. These attacks may occur in a wide range of forms, and include but are not limited to:
220.127.116.11) double-spend attacks,
18.104.22.168) majority mining power attacks,
22.214.171.124) "selfish-mining" attacks, and
126.96.36.199) race condition attacks.
Any successful attacks are a risk to the Ethereum Network, the expected proper execution and sequencing of FORCE transactions, and the expected proper execution and sequencing of software computations.
2.2.6) Liquidity risk: FORCE is a new form of token currency and so market liquidity is not guaranteed and the value of FORCE over time (if any) may experience extreme volatility or depreciate in full. Lack of liquidity may cause difficulty in obtaining value should you decide to sell FORCE, or indeed may make it difficult for you to sell your FORCE at all;
2.2.7) General economic risks: Please be aware that the value of FORCE can fall as well as rise. You may not get back the full amount of your Contribution should you sell your FORCE. The value of FORCE may depend on fluctuations in the financial markets, or other economic factors, which are outside our control. The past performance of other cryptographic tokens is not necessarily a guide to the future performance of FORCE.
2.3) As long as we have acted in good faith, we do not accept responsibility for any of the risks set out above, to the maximum extent allowed by law, as we view you accepting these as part of your decision whether to make a Contribution.
3.1) Technical experts have, on a reasonable efforts basis, audited and approved the Software and TFT code with regard to their functionality, accuracy and security standards. Those experts have confirmed the FORCE Token Code (the "Code") has been programmed according to the most currently available security practices and standards.
3.2) However, the software and technology that we have used is still in an early development stage. Its application is of an experimental nature which carries significant operational, technological, financial, regulatory and reputational risks.
3.3) Therefore, while the audit raises the level of security and accuracy, you understand and accept that it does not amount to any form of warranty, either direct or indirect, that the Code does not contain any weaknesses, vulnerabilities or bugs which could cause, for example, the complete loss of FORCE and/or Ethereum Network.
4.1 You may not make a Contribution if you are a US citizen, or a person or entity permanently resident in the US or any of its territories. In the event you do make a Contribution where you are any of the above, you accept any and all risks, costs and damages associated with making a Contribution.
4.2 When you make a Contribution, or otherwise receive, use or hold FORCE, you may only do by accepting the following conditions and, by doing so, you represent that the following are a true and accurate reflection of the basis on which you are making the Contribution:
4.2.1) unless we otherwise agree in writing, we have not provided you with any advice regarding whether TFT is a suitable investment for you;
4.2.2) you have sufficient understanding of the functionality, usage, storage, transmission mechanisms and intricacies associated with cryptographic tokens, such as Bitcoin and Ether, as well as blockchain-based software systems generally;
4.2.3) you are legally permitted to receive and hold and make use of FORCE in your and any other relevant jurisdiction;
4.2.4) you will supply us with all information, documentation or copy documentation that we require in order to allow us to accept your Contribution and allocate FORCE to you;
4.2.5) you are legally permitted to receive software, including the Software and to make a Contribution;

4.2.8) you will notify us promptly of any change to the information supplied by you to us;
4.2.9) you are of a sufficient age to legally obtain FORCE, and you are not aware of any other legal reason to prevent you from obtaining FORCE;
4.2.10) you take sole responsibility for any restrictions and risks associated with receiving and holding FORCE, including but not limited to these set out in Section 2, Risks of making a Contribution;
4.2.11) by making a Contribution you are not making a regulated investment, as this term may be interpreted by the regulator in your jurisdiction;
4.2.12) you are not obtaining or using FORCE for any illegal purpose, and will not use FORCE for any illegal purpose;
4.2.13) you waive any right you may have / obtain to participate in a class action lawsuit or a class wide arbitration against any entity or individual involved with the Contribution to TFT, with the allocation of FORCE and with the operation of the TFT Platform;
4.2.14) your Contribution and the allocation of FORCE do not involve your purchase or receipt of shares, ownership or any equivalent in any existing or future public or private company, corporation or other entity in any jurisdiction;
4.2.15) to the extent permitted by law and provided we act in good faith, we make no warranty whatsoever, either expressed or implied, regarding the future success of FORCE, the TFT Platform and/or the Ethereum Network.
4.2.16) you accept that FORCE is created and you obtain FORCE on an "as is" and "under development" basis. Therefore, provided we act in good faith, you accept that we are providing FORCE without being able to provide any warranties in relation to FORCE, including, but not limited to, title, merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose; and
4.2.17 you accept that you bear sole responsibility for determining if:
188.8.131.52) the Contribution,
184.108.40.206) the allocation, use or ownership of FORCE,
220.127.116.11) the potential appreciation or depreciation in the value of FORCE over time, if any,
18.104.22.168) the sale and purchase of FORCE; and/or
22.214.171.124) any other action or transaction related to the FORCE Platform and Ethereum Network
have tax implications. To the extent permitted by law, you accept that by making a Contribution, and/or by receiving, using or holding FORCE, you may not hold us or any party associated with us (including developers, auditors, contractors or founders) liable for any tax liability associated with or arising from such Contribution, or the allocation, use or ownership of FORCE, or any other action or transaction under these T&Cs.
