- Dispute Resolution by Arbitration
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CLAUSE CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT CONTAINS CERTAIN PROVISIONS, SUCH AS A BINDING ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER, WHICH AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. THIS CLAUSE REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH SID LTD AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
20.1 Binding Arbitration. Except for any disputes, claims, suits, actions, causes of action, demands or proceedings (collectively, “Disputes“) in which either Party seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, you and SID Ltd (i) waive your and SID Ltd’s respective rights to have any and all Disputes arising from or related to these T&Cs resolved in a court, and (ii) waive your and SID Ltd’s respective rights to a jury trial. Instead, you and SID Ltd will arbitrate Disputes through binding arbitration (which is the referral of a Dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the Dispute and making a final and binding determination to resolve it instead of having the Dispute decided by a judge or jury in court).
20.2 No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions. Any Dispute arising out of or related to these T&Cs is personal to you and SID Ltd and will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding. There will be no class arbitration or arbitration in which an individual attempts to resolve a Dispute as a representative of another individual or group of individuals. Further, a Dispute cannot be brought as a class or other type of representative action, whether within or outside of arbitration, or on behalf of any other individual or group of individuals.
20.3 Arbitration Rules. Any dispute arising out of or in connection with this these T&Cs, including any question regarding its existence, validity or termination, shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration under the rules of the London Court of International Arbitration (“LCIA Rules”), which are available at http://www.lcia.org/Dispute_Resolution_Services/lcia-arbitration-rules-2014.aspx and are deemed to be incorporated by reference in this clause 20. By agreeing to be bound by these T&Cs, you either (i) acknowledge and agree that you have read and understood the LCIA Rules, or (ii) waive your opportunity to read the LCIA Rules and any claim that the LCIA Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
20.4 Notice; Informal Dispute Resolution. Each Party will notify the other Party in writing of any Dispute within thirty (30) days of the date it arises, so that the Parties can attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute informally. Notice to SID Ltd shall be sent by e-mail to [[email protected]] Notice to you shall be sent to any address you provide to us in writing in a notice. Your notice must include (i) your name, postal address, email address and telephone number, (ii) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute, and (iii) the specific relief that you are seeking. If you and SID Ltd cannot agree how to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after the date the notice is received by the applicable Party, then either you or SID Ltd may, as appropriate and in accordance with this clause 20, commence an arbitration proceeding or, to the extent specifically provided for in clause 20.1, file a claim in court.
20.5 Process. Any arbitration will occur in Gibraltar. The arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator appointed in accordance with the LCIA. The courts located in Paris, France will have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration decision.
20.6 Authority of Arbitrator. These T&Cs, the applicable LCIA Rules and the arbitrator will have (i) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute, including the determination of whether a Dispute is arbitrable, and (ii) the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court, provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative or class action, which is prohibited by these T&Cs. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
20.7 Severability of Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Provisions. If any term, clause or provision of this clause 20 is held invalid or unenforceable, it will be so held to the minimum extent applicable and required by law, and all other terms, clauses and provisions of this clause 20 will remain valid and enforceable. Further, the waivers set forth in clause 20.2 above are severable from the other provisions of these T&Cs and will remain valid and enforceable, except as prohibited by applicable law. Any term, clause or provision of these T&Cs that would be held unenforceable in any jurisdiction, all parties agree herewith irrevocably to replace those unenforceable parts by others with the same original meaning but with wording that is legally enforceable.
21.1 We may amend these T&Cs from time to time, including where there are changes to the intended functionality of SIDT or as may be otherwise required by any laws or regulatory requirements to which we are subject. If we make any amendments to these T&Cs, we will publish a notice together with the updated T&Cs on our website and we will change the “Last Updated” date at the top of these T&Cs. Any amended T&Cs shall become effective immediately upon the publication of notice and updated T&Cs on our website. It is your responsibility to regularly check our website for any such notices and updated particular T&Cs.
Please be sure to check with your mobile network operator or internet service provider their terms and conditions, because some have a small print stating that the internet they purchase is only for private use and thus not for re-sale or sharing. Although anyone can activate on a smartphone the tethering or hotspot function, the mobile operator who provides the SIM could disable this option remotely. SID includes in its APPs an end-user setting to allow sharing automatically its Mobile Data or not with nearby SID users and is additionally prompted to confirm.
21.2 The Contributor understands and accepts that the network of miners will ultimately be in control of the Smart Contract System and that a majority of these miners could agree at any point to make changes to the official Smart Contract System and to run a new version of the Smart Contract System. Such a scenario could lead to SIDT losing intrinsic value.
21.3 If any term, clause or provision of these T&Cs is found to be illegal, void or unenforceable (in whole or in part), then such term, clause or provision shall be severable from these T&Cs without affecting the validity or enforceability of any remaining part of that term, clause or provision, or any other term, clause or provision of these T&Cs, which shall remain in full force and effect.
21.4 These T&Cs constitute the entire agreement between the Parties in relation to its subject matter. These T&Cs replace and extinguish any and all prior agreements, draft agreements, arrangements, warranties, statements, assurances, representations and undertakings of any nature made by, or on behalf of the Parties, whether oral or written, public or private, in relation to that subject matter.
21.5 You acknowledge that by accepting these T&Cs, you have not relied on any oral or written statements, warranties, assurances, representations or undertakings which were or may have been made by or on behalf of Sid Ltd in relation to the subject matter of these T&Cs at any time before your acceptance of them (“Pre-Contractual Statements“), other than those set out in these T&Cs. You hereby waive any and all rights and remedies which might otherwise be available in relation to such Pre-Contractual Statements.
21.6 Nothing in these T&Cs shall be deemed to create any form of partnership, joint venture or any other similar relationship between you and SID Ltd and/or other individuals or entities involved with the development and deployment of the Smart Contract System and/or the SID Platform.
21.7 Subject to clause 20, these T&Cs and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with their subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes and claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with Gibraltar law.
21.8 The Parties irrevocably agree that the Gibraltar courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim that arises out of or in connection with these T&Cs or their subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes and claims).
21.9 To be eligible to receive any SID Tokens from: purchases, bounty programs, promo codes, airdrops, referrals or any such other form or campaign, you must be compliant with the specific T&Cs of the applicable campaign like “token sale T&Cs”, “Bounty/Airdrop/Referral T&cs”, etc. as well as the following terms and conditions:
– You must introduce in your SID account Private Area a valid and active Stellar Wallet with SIDT Trustline activated and do it before the ITO ends on 31st December 2018 or at a later date if extended, but in no event after a first extended deadline date and not after the website online token sale end date.
– Comply with ALL the other points of these T&Cs.
– Any user accounts that are non-compliant with any of SID T&Cs (including the above) post the end of the “initial token sale” (31 Dec 2018 unless extended) will be blocked and dashboard tokens will returned to their corresponding company token pool.
INTENDED FUNCTIONALITY OF SIDT ON THE SID PLATFORM
SIDT will be an essential utility for users of the SID Platform as they will enable interaction within the SID Platform and will act as the main driver of the SID ecosystem. SIDT will effectively operate as an “in-app currency”, the sole purpose of which is to allow users to participate on the SID Platform.
SIDT have a number of purposes within the SID Platform depending on the role the user chooses to take on. Essentially, SIDT will have the following functionality within the SID Platform:
- SIDT will be used to pay for fees within the SID Platform;
- SIDT will be used to acquire mobile data and internet megabytes from other nearby users of the SID Platform;
- SIDT will be earned by sharing their internet connection and mobile internet data bundle with other nearby users of the SID Platform.
- SIDT might be earned in the future when consuming “paid Ads” when connected to the internet directly or sharing those earned SIDT when receiving their internet connection from nearby SID users devices of the SID Platform.
SIDT do not have any functionality or utility outside the SID Platform. The functionality and utility of SIDT will therefore be limited to interacting with users/content within the confines of a single platform.
SIDT are not intended to have any functionality or utility outside the SID Platform. The SID Platform will therefore be structured as a “closed system” insofar as the use of SIDT is concerned. Whilst it is possible that a secondary market could develop for trading SIDT, SID Ltd will not operate such secondary markets nor will it act as an exchange for SIDR. To the extent a secondary market or exchange for trading SIDT does develop, it would be run and operated wholly and independently of SID Ltd, the Token Sale and the SID Platform.
POSSIBILITY OF CHANGE TO THE INTENDED FUNCTIONALITY OF SIDT
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF UNDERTAKING A LEGAL AND REGULATORY ANALYSIS OF THE FUNCTIONALITY OF SIDT. FOLLOWING THE CONCLUSION OF THIS ANALYSIS, WE MAY DECIDE TO AMEND THE INTENDED FUNCTIONALITY OF SIDT IN ORDER TO ENSURE COMPLIANCE WITH ANY LEGAL OR REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS TO WHICH WE ARE SUBJECT. WE SHALL PUBLISH A NOTICE ON OUR WEBSITE OF ANY CHANGES THAT WE DECIDE TO MAKE TO THE FUNCTIONALITY OF CSIDT AND IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO REGULARLY CHECK OUR WEBSITE FOR ANY SUCH NOTICES. ON THE CONCLUSION OF THIS ANALYSIS, WE WILL DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT TO CHANGE THE FUNCTIONALITY OF SIDT.
SIDT TOKEN CREATION AND INTENDED DISTRIBUTION
It is envisaged that SID Ltd will create 25,000,000,000 (twenty-five billion) SIDT pre-mining out of which:
- 10,250,000,000 (10 billion and two hundred and fifty million) SIDT will be reserved for the Token Sale;
- 1,991,000,000 (one billion nine hundred and ninety-one million) SIDT will be reserved for its Bounty Program, that is to say for compensating individuals or companies who assist in different tasks that could benefit the SID Platform, including but not limited to, beta testing, reporting bugs, exploits and vulnerabilities, creating or translating SIDT materials, or supporting SID Ltd Social Media);
- 884,000,000 (eight hundred and eighty-four million) SIDT will be reserved for white-listing and air-drop giveaway programs;
- 5,000,000,000 (five billion) SIDT will be reserved for the founders, employees and other individual contributors;
- 1,250,000,000 (one billion two hundred and fifty million) SIDT will be reserved for advisors; and
- 5,625,000,000 (five billion six hundred and twenty-five million) SIDT shall remain at the disposal of SID Ltd for future use. Such future use shall be at SID Ltd’s sole and absolute discretion and shall be determined depending on the requirements of SID Ltd’s business from time to time.
1.Risk of software weaknesses: because SIDT, the Smart Contract System and the SID Platform are based on the Stellar protocol, any malfunction, breakdown or abandonment of the Stellar protocol may have a material adverse effect on SIDT, the Smart Contract System and/or the SID Platform. Moreover, advances in cryptography, or technical advances such as the development of quantum computing, could present risks to the SIDT (including the utility of SIDT for obtaining services), the Smart Contract System and/or the SID Platform, by rendering ineffective the cryptographic consensus mechanism that underpins the Stellar protocol. The Smart Contract System concept, the underlying software application and software platform (i.e. the Stellar blockchain) is still in an early development stage and unproven. There is no warranty or assurance that the process for creating SIDT will be uninterrupted or error-free and there is an inherent risk that the software could contain defects, weaknesses, vulnerabilities, viruses or bugs causing, inter alia, the complete loss of contributions and/or SIDT.
2.Regulatory risk: blockchain technology allows new forms of interaction and it is possible that certain jurisdictions will apply existing regulations on, or introduce new regulations addressing, blockchain technology-based applications, which may be contrary to the current setup of the Smart Contract System and which may, inter alia, result in substantial modifications to the Smart Contract System and/or the SID Platform, including its termination and the loss of SIDT for the Contributor. Additionally, regulation of proposed activities of the SID Platform is currently uncertain. It is not known what regulatory framework the proposed SID Platform and associated activities will be caught by, the nature and obligations that will be imposed on SID Platform in order to comply with any such regulatory framework or when/if SID Platform will even be able to apply to be regulated, or successfully obtain the necessary licenses so that it may lawfully carry out its proposed business activities.
3.Risks associated with uncertain regulations and enforcement actions: the regulatory status of SIDT and distributed ledger technology is unclear or unsettled in many jurisdictions. It is difficult to predict how or whether regulatory authorities may apply existing regulation with respect to such technology and its applications, including the SID Platform and SIDT. It is likewise difficult to predict how or whether any legislative or regulatory authorities may implement changes to law and regulation affecting distributed ledger technology and its applications, including the SID Platform and SIDT. Regulatory actions could negatively impact the SID Platform and SIDT in various ways, including, for purposes of illustration only, through a determination that SIDT are a regulated financial instrument that requires registration or licensing. SID Ltd 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.
4.Risk of abandonment / lack of success: the creation and issue of SIDT and the development of the SID Platform may be abandoned for a number of reasons, including lack of interest from the public, lack of funding, lack of commercial success or prospects (e.g. caused by competing projects). There is no assurance that, even if the SID Platform is partially or fully developed and launched, you will receive any benefits through SIDT that you hold.
5.Risk associated with other applications: the SID Platform may give rise to other, alternative projects, promoted by unaffiliated third parties, under which SIDT will have no intrinsic value.
6.Risks associated with markets for SIDT: We not enable or otherwise facilitate any secondary trading or external valuation of SIDT. This may restrict the contemplated avenues for using SIDT and could therefore create illiquidity risk with respect to any SIDT you own. Even if secondary trading of SIDT is facilitated by third-party exchanges, such exchanges may be relatively new and subject to little or no regulatory oversight, making them more susceptible to fraud or manipulation. Furthermore, to the extent that any third party ascribes an external exchange value to SIDT (e.g. as denominated in a crypto or fiat currency), such value may be extremely volatile and diminish to zero. If you are purchasing SIDT as a form of investment on a speculative basis or otherwise, or for a financial purpose, with the expectation or desire that their inherent, intrinsic or cash-equivalent value may increase with time, you assume all risks associated with such speculation or actions, and any errors associated therewith, and accept that SIDT are not offered by SID Ltd or our affiliates on an investment basis. You further acknowledge that any contribution that you make under these T&Cs will not be protected, guaranteed or reimbursed by any governmental, regulatory or other entity, and will not, for instance be guaranteed by the Gibraltar Deposit Guarantee Scheme, the Gibraltar Investor Compensation Scheme, and is unlikely to be protected by any equivalent scheme in a jurisdiction outside of Gibraltar.
7.Risk of losing access to tokens due to loss of private key(s), custodial error or your error: SIDT can only be accessed by using a Stellar wallet with a combination of the Contributor’s account information (address), private key and password. The private key is encrypted with a password. You acknowledge, understand and accept that if your private key or password gets lost or stolen, the obtained SIDT associated with your Stellar wallet address may be unrecoverable and permanently lost. Additionally, any third party that gains access to your private key, including by gaining access to the login credentials relating to your Stellar wallet, may be able to misappropriate your SIDT. Any errors or malfunctions caused by or otherwise related to the digital wallet or vault in which you choose to receive and store SIDT, including your own failure to properly maintain or use such digital wallet or vault, may also result in the loss of your SIDT.
8.Risk of theft: the Smart Contract System concept, the underlying software application and software platform (i.e. the Stellar blockchain) may be exposed to attacks by hackers or other individuals including, but not limited to, malware attacks, denial of service attacks, consensus-based attacks, Sybil attacks, smurfing and spoofing. Any such successful attacks could result in theft or loss of contributions or SIDT, adversely impacting the ability to develop the SID Platform and derive any usage or functionality from SIDT. Furthermore, because the SID Platform is based on open-source software, there is a risk that a third party or a member of the SID Ltd team may intentionally or unintentionally introduce weaknesses or defects into the core infrastructure of the SID Platform, which could negatively affect the SID Platform and SIDT.
9.Risk of mining attacks: as with other cryptocurrencies, the blockchain used for the Smart Contract System is susceptible to mining attacks, including but not limited to double-spend attacks, majority mining power attacks, “selfish-mining” attacks, and rare condition attacks. Any successful attacks present a risk to the Smart Contract System, expected proper execution and sequencing of token transactions, and expected proper execution and sequencing of contract computations. You understand and accept that the network of miners will ultimately be in control of the delivery of the SIDT via the Smart Contract System, and that a majority of miners could agree at any point to make changes, updates, modifications to, or effect a deletion or destruction of the Smart Contract System, and that such a scenario could lead to the SIDT losing intrinsic value and/or functionality.
10.Risk of incompatible wallet service: the wallet or wallet service provider used to receive SIDT must conform to the XLM token standard in order to be technically compatible with SIDT. The failure to ensure such conformity may have the result that Contributor will not gain access to his SIDT.
11.Risk of hard-fork: the SID Platform will need to go through substantial development works as part of which it may become the subject of significant conceptual, technical and commercial changes before release. As part of the development, an upgrade to SIDT may be required (hard-fork of SIDT) and that, if you decide not to participate in such upgrade, you may no longer be able to use your SIDT and any non-upgraded SIDT may lose its functionality in full.
12.Risk of uninsured losses: unlike bank accounts or accounts at some other financial institutions, SIDT are uninsured unless you specifically obtain private insurance to insure them. Thus, in the event of loss or loss of utility value, there is no public insurer or private insurance arranged by us, to offer recourse to you.
13.Risks arising from taxation: the tax characterization of SIDT is uncertain. You must seek your own tax advice in connection with acquisition, storage, transfer and use of SIDT, which may result in adverse tax consequences to you, including, without limitation, withholding taxes, transfer taxes, value added taxes, income taxes and similar taxes, levies, duties or other charges and tax reporting requirements.
14.Risk of an unfavourable fluctuation of cryptocurrencies and other currency value: SID Ltd intends to use the contributions received to fund the development of the SID Platform and various other operating expenses. The contributions received will be denominated in EUR and may be converted into other cryptographic and fiat currencies. If the value of any cryptocurrency or other currencies fluctuate unfavourably during or after the Contribution Period, SID Ltd may not be able to fund the development of, or may not be able to maintain, the SID Platform in the manner that it intended.
15.Risk of dissolution of the Company or network: it is possible that, due to any number of reasons, including, but not limited to, an unfavourable fluctuation in the value of ETH (or other cryptographic and fiat currencies), decrease in SIDT utility due to negative adoption of the SID Platform, the failure of commercial relationships, or intellectual property ownership challenges, the SID Ltd may no longer be viable to operate and SID Platform may dissolve.
16.Risks arising from lack of governance rights: because SIDT confer no governance rights of any kind with respect to SID Ltd or the SID Platform, all decisions involving the SID Platform or SID Ltd will be made by Sid Ltd acting in its sole and absolute discretion, including, but not limited to, decisions to discontinue the SID Platform, to create and issue more SIDT, or to sell or liquidate SID Ltd. These decisions could adversely affect the SID Platform and/or SIDT you hold.
17.Risks associated with the development and maintenance of the SID Platform: the SID Platform is still under development and may undergo significant changes over time. Although we intend for SIDT and the SID Platform to function as described in Schedule 1, and intend to take commercially reasonable steps towards those ends, we may have to make changes to the specifications of the SIDT or the SID Platform for any number of legitimate reasons. Moreover, we have no control over how other participants will use the SID Platform, what products or services will be offered through the SID Platform by third parties, or how third-party products and SID Platform, as further developed and maintained, may not meet your expectations at the time of purchase. Furthermore, despite our good faith efforts to develop and participate in the SID Platform, it is still possible that the SID Platform will experience malfunctions or otherwise fail to be adequately developed or maintained, which may negatively impact the SID Platform and SIDT, and the potential utility of the SIDT, including the utility of the SIDT for obtaining services and/or offering rewards and/or being used in the manner intended at the time of the Token Sale.
18.Risk of Competing Platforms: It is possible that alternative platforms could be established that utilize the same open source code and protocol underlying the SID Platform and attempt to facilitate services that are materially similar to the services offered by or within the SID Platform. The SIDPlatform may compete with these alternatives, which could negatively impact SID Platform and SIDT, including the utility of the SIDT for obtaining services offered by or within the SID Platform.
19.Unanticipated Risks: cryptographic tokens such as SIDT are a new and untested technology. In addition to the risks set out in this Schedule 2, there are other risks associated with your acquisition, storage, transfer and use of SIDT, including those that SID Ltd may not be able to anticipate. Such risks may further materialize as unanticipated variations or combinations of the risks set out in this Schedule 2.
