  1. TBN TOKEN SALE PROCEDURES AND SPECIFICATIONS

2.1. General. TBN intends to allocate and distribute a limited number of TBN Tokens (the “TBN Token Sale”).  Important information about the procedures and specifications of our TBN Token Sale is provided in Exhibit A, including, but not limited to, details regarding the timing and pricing of the TBN Token Sale, the amount of TBN Tokens we will sell and our anticipated use of the TBN Token Sale proceeds.  BY PURCHASING TBN TOKENS, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND HAVE NO OBJECTION TO THESE PROCEDURES AND SPECIFICATIONS.

2.2. Final Sale. Your Purchase of TBN Tokens from us during the Sale Period is final, and there are no refunds or cancellations except as may be required by applicable law or regulation.  We reserve the right to refuse or cancel TBN Token purchase requests at any time in our sole discretion.

2.3. Not an Offering of Securities. Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that the sale of TBN Tokens and the TBN Tokens themselves are not an investment, security, share or equity interest, debt or loan nor a derivative instrument of any of the foregoing.  This Agreement and all other documents referred to in this Agreement, do not constitute a prospectus or offering document and are not an offer to sell nor the solicitation of an offer to buy an investment, security, share, equity interest or debt nor a derivative interest of any of the foregoing.

2.4. Not an Investment. Purchaser should not participate in the TBN Token Sale or Purchase TBN Tokens for investment purposes.  The Purchase of TBN Tokens pursuant to this Agreement is not designed for investment purposes and should not be considered as a type of investment.  TBN Tokens may not be transferred until the end of the Sale Period and are subject to certain vesting periods as set forth below in Exhibit A. Purchaser acknowledges, understands and agrees that Purchaser should not expect, and there is no guarantee or representation or warranty by TBN, that (a) TBN Tokens will be listed for trading on any exchange, or (b) the TBN Platform will be adopted as described in the White Paper and not in a different or modified form.

  1. NO OTHER RIGHTS CREATED

3.1. No Claim, Loan or Ownership Interest. The Purchase of TBN Tokens (a) does not provide Purchaser with rights of any type with respect to TBN or its revenues or assets, including, but not limited to, any voting, distribution, redemption, liquidation, proprietary or other financial or legal rights, (b) is not a loan to TBN and (c) does not provide Purchaser with any ownership or other interest in TBN.

3.2. Intellectual Property. TBN retains all right, title and interest in all of TBN’s intellectual property, including, without limitation, inventions, ideas, discoveries, software, processes, marks, methods, information and data, whether or not protectable by patent, copyright or trademark.  Purchaser may not use any of TBN’s intellectual property for any reason without TBN’s prior written consent.

  1. RISKS

4.1. You should peruse, comprehend and carefully consider or seek legal advice as to the risks described below in addition to the other information stated in this Agreement, the Whitepaper, the Website or elsewhere before deciding to participate in the ICO. Participating in the ICO will be deemed as you having accepted all the risks outlined in this Agreement.   

4.2. TBN Token price may experience extreme volatility. Cryptographic tokens or cryptocurrencies have demonstrated extreme fluctuations in price over short periods of time on a regular basis. You must be prepared to accept similar fluctuations in TBN Token value. Such fluctuations are due to market forces and represent changes in the balance of supply and demand. TBN cannot and does not guarantee any market liquidity for TBN Tokens. Additionally, due to different regulatory requirements in different jurisdictions, the liquidity of  TBN Tokens may be markedly different in different jurisdictions.

4.3. While some of cryptographic tokens or cryptocurrencies may have been relatively stable, it is possible that their values may drop significantly in the future, which may deprive TBN of sufficient resources to continue to operate.  

4.4. Cryptocurrencies are being, or may be, scrutinized by the regulatory authorities of various jurisdictions. TBN may receive queries, notices, warnings, requests or rulings from one or more regulatory authorities from time to time,  or may even be ordered to suspend or discontinue any action in connection with TBN Tokens, as well as be impacted by one or more regulatory inquiries or regulatory actions, which could impede or limit the ability of TBN to further conduct business. The development, marketing, promotion or otherwise of TBN Tokens may be seriously affected, hindered or terminated as a result.   

4.5. Advances in cryptography, such as code cracking or technical advances such as the development of quantum computers, could present risks to all cryptocurrencies, including TBN Tokens. This could result in the theft, loss, disappearance, destruction or devaluation of  TBN Tokens. It is impossible to predict the future of cryptography or the future of security innovations to an extent that would permit TBN to accurately guide the development of TBN Tokens to take into account such unforeseeable changes in the domains of cryptography or security.   

4.6. TBN cannot guarantee the software used by TBN to be flaw-free. It may contain certain flaws, errors, defects and bugs, which may disable some functionality for users, expose users’ information or otherwise. Such flaw would compromise the usability and/or security of TBN Tokens and consequently bring adverse impact on the value of TBN Tokens.   

4.7. Ethereum is an open source project and supported by the community. TBN does not lead the development, marketing, operation or otherwise of Ethereum. Anybody may develop a patch or upgrade of the source code of Ethereum’s source without prior authorization of anyone else. The acceptance of Ethereum patches or upgrades by a significant, but not overwhelming, percentage of the users could result in a “fork” in the blockchain of Ethereum, and consequently the operation of two separate networks and will remain separate until the forked blockchains are merged. The temporary or permanent existence of forked blockchains could adversely impact the operation and the market value of TBN Tokens and in the worst-case scenario, could ruin the sustainability of TBN Tokens.  While such a fork in the blockchain of Ethereum would possibly be resolved by community led efforts to merge the forked blockchains, the success is not guaranteed and could take long period of time to achieve.

4.8. The Ethereum source code and the software used by TBN could be updated, amended, altered or modified from time to time by the developers and/or the community of Ethereum. Nobody is able to foresee or guarantee the precise result of such update, amendment, alteration or modification. As a result, any update, amendment, alteration or modification could lead to an unexpected or unintended outcome that adversely affects TBN’s operation and token market value.  

4.9. The blockchain rests on open-source software. Regardless of TBN’s effort to keep the blockchain secure, anyone may intentionally or unintentionally introduce weaknesses or bugs into the core infrastructural elements of  TBN. This could consequently result in the loss of TBN Tokens held by you.

4.10. The loss or destruction of a private key required to access TBN Tokens may be irreversible. You are required to safeguard the private keys relating to your own TBN Token wallets. To the extent such private key is lost, destroyed or otherwise compromised, neither TBN Invest, nor anyone else will be able to access the related TBN Tokens.   

4.11. TBN Tokens are not a currency issued by any individual, entity, central bank or national, supranational or quasi-national organization. The circulation and trading of TBN Tokens on the market depends on the consensus on its value between the relevant market participants. Nobody is obliged to redeem or purchase any TBN Tokens from any user or token holder. Nor does anyone guarantee the liquidity or market price of  a token to any extent. TBN has no control over market price or liquidity of its tokens once they start to trade in the open market.

4.12. It is possible that TBN products and services or its tokens will not be used by a large number of individuals, businesses and other organisations and that there will be limited public interest in the creation and development of its functionalities. Such a lack of interest could impact the development of TBN’s business.   

4.13. TBN, as developed, may not meet your expectations. You acknowledge that TBN is currently under development and may undergo significant changes before release. You also acknowledge that any expectations regarding the form and functionality of tokens held by you may not be met upon its release for any number of reasons, including a change in the design and implementation plans and execution of the implementation of TBN services. Furthermore, you acknowledge that TBN products and services may never be fully completed or released.  

4.14. You understand and accept that hackers or other groups or organisations may attempt to steal TBN Tokens or otherwise interrupt or cease TBN business or usage of its tokens.   

4.15. Except for historical information, there may be matters in this Agreement, the Website, the Whitepaper or elsewhere that are forward-looking statements. Such statements are only predictions and are subject to inherent risks and uncertainty. Forward-looking statements, which are based on assumptions and estimates and describe TBN future plans, strategies, and expectations are generally identifiable by the use of the words ‘anticipate’, ‘will’, ‘believe’, ‘estimate’, ‘plan’, ‘expect’, ‘intend’, ‘seek’, or similar expressions. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. By its nature, forward looking information involves numerous assumptions, inherent risks and uncertainties both general and specific that contribute to the possibility those predictions, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking statements will not occur. Those risks and uncertainties include actors and risks specific to the industry in which TBN operates as well as general economic conditions and prevailing exchange rates and interest rates. Actual performance or events may be materially different from those expressed or implied in those statements. All forward-looking statements attributable to TBN or persons acting on behalf of TBN are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements in this section. Except as expressly required by the applicable law, TBN undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements provided in this publication whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, or the risks affecting this information.  None of TBN, its officers or any person named in this Agreement, the Website, the Whitepaper or elsewhere with their consent, or any person involved in the preparation of this Agreement, the Website or the Whitepaper, makes any representation or warranty (express or implied) as to the accuracy or likelihood of fulfilment of any forward-looking statement except to the extent required by law.

4.16. The Internet industry is comprised of a number of participants and is subject to rapid change and competition TBN faces from other organisations, some of which may have greater financial, technical and marketing resources. Increased competition could result in under-utilization of employees, reduced operating margins and loss of market share, especially TBN first mover status. Any of these occurrences could adversely affect the TBN business, operating results and financial condition. The possibility remains that the fundamental business model may not achieve any traction due to an existing or new entrant offering a similar solution or that the general public do not see it as part of their future. The targets and business valuation inherent in the Website, the Whitepaper or elsewhere are based on TBN management personal experience, contacts and feedback from the market. There can be no assurance that these reflect the actual reality of the opportunity or that will be able to compete successfully against current or future competitors. You are encouraged to seek professional advice when assessing the understanding of TBN business model metrics and projected returns and values as presented by directors in this Agreement, the Website, the Whitepaper or elsewhere.  

4.17. Acknowledgement. You expressly acknowledge that you have carefully reviewed and understand and assume the risks associated with purchasing, holding and using TBN Tokens and using the corresponding TBN Token Smart Contract, as disclosed.  BY PURCHASING TBN TOKENS USING THE TBN SMART CONTRACTS, YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND ASSUME THESE RISKS, INCLUDING THAT TBN TOKENS MAY HAVE NO VALUE and hereby release TBN form any such loss.

  1. AUDIT OF THE SMART CONTRACT SYSTEM

5.1. TBN shall exercise reasonable endeavors to have the Smart Contract System audited and approved by technical experts with regard to both accuracy and security of the underlying code.

5.2. Notwithstanding Section 5.1, smart contract technology is still in an early stage of development and its application is currently of an experimental nature, which carries significant operational, technological, financial, regulatory and reputational risks. Accordingly, while any audit conducted shall raise the level of security and accuracy of the Smart Contract System, you acknowledge, understand and accept that the audit does not amount to any form of warranty, representation or assurance (in each case whether express or implied) that the Smart Contract System and TBN Tokens are fit for a particular purpose or that they are free from any defects, weaknesses, vulnerabilities, viruses or bugs which could cause, inter alia, the complete loss of USD, ETH and/or BTC contributions and/or TBN Tokens.

 

  1. POSSIBLE MIGRATION OF TOKENS.

6.1 The Tokens are being created as ERC-20 tokens on the Ethereum Platform. We reserve the right to migrate the ERC-20 based Tokens (the “ Pre-existing Tokens ”) to another protocol or blockchain, and to generate replacement Tokens on the new protocol (the “ Replacement Tokens ”) in the future, should we determine, in our sole discretion, that doing so is necessary or useful to the operation of the Ecosystem.

6.2. Should we decide to migrate the Tokens, we may no longer provide support for the Pre-existing Tokens relating to the Ecosystem, the Services, or any other operational matters, except with respect to the migration process. Accordingly, by accepting these Terms you acknowledge and agree that in order for you to continue to participate in the Ecosystem or obtain utility from the Tokens you may need to convert the Tokens you purchase during the Sale to Replacement Tokens in the future.

6.3. Should we decide to migrate the Tokens, we will notify you via the email address you provided to us at the time of the Sale. You are solely responsible for updating us should your contact information change.

6.4. TBN may deem it necessary to migrate the tokens to a new smart-contract on ERC-20 should it be necessary for the improvement of the TBN code. If this occurs, all TBN token holders will automatically receive a Replacement Tokens for each Pre-existing Token they hold at a one-to-one rate. The Pre-existing tokens would be deemed invalid going forward. This will be accomplished technically similar to a “fork” and “airdrop.” In the event this occurs, TBN will manually review all wallets on the blockchain as well as activate a help channel for any questions to create a smooth transition between the smart-contracts. The new TBN smart contract will retain the same total token cap and distribution as the prior smart contract.

  1. SECURITY

7.1. Your Obligations. You are responsible for implementing reasonable measures for secure access to the device, wallet, vault or other storage mechanism you use to Purchase, receive and hold TBN Tokens you Purchase from us, including any requisite private key(s), usernames, passwords or other login or credentials necessary to access such storage mechanism(s).  If your private key(s) or other access credentials are lost, you may lose access to your TBN Tokens. We are not responsible for any such losses. You understand and agree that all Purchases of TBN Tokens are non-refundable and you will not receive money or other compensation for any TBN Tokens purchased.

7.2. KYC/AML process. You accept that you will receive your TBN ONLY after having successfully passed through our KYC and AML process. This means that TBN will not be distributed until you have passed through this screening successfully. If you fail to pass the KYC screening you will not receive your TBN Tokens. In the case that you do not successfully pass the KYC screening, you are agree that the Company will hold your funds until the TBN Tokens are fully distributed. You agree that the Company may use your submitted information in any way required by law or deemed necessary and that your funds used to purchase TBN Tokens will not be automatically refunded to you without first submitting a refund request and that a refund request MUST be submitted within 6 weeks of the ICO end date.

16.1. 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 the Company (i) waive your and the Company’s respective rights to have any and all Disputes arising from or related to these Terms & Conditions resolved in a court, and (ii) waive your and the Company’s respective rights to a jury trial. Instead, you and the Company agree to 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) through the INTERNATIONAL CENTRE FOR DISPUTE RESOLUTION (www. http://internationalarbitrationlaw.com).

16.2. No Class Arbitrations, Class or Representatives Actions: Any Dispute arising out of or related to these Terms & Conditions is personal to you and the Company 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.  

16.3. Arbitration Rules: Any dispute arising out of or in connection with this these Terms & Conditions, including any question regarding its existence, validity or termination, shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration under the International Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA Rules”), which are available at https://www.adr.org/Rules and are deemed to be incorporated by reference in this Section 15.

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 the Company cannot agree how to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after the date that the notice is received by the applicable Party, then either you or the Company may, as appropriate and in accordance with this Section 16, commence an arbitration proceeding or, to the extent specifically provided for in Section 16.1, file a claim in court.

16.5. Process. Any arbitration will occur in San Jose, Costa Rica. The arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator appointed in accordance with the AAA Rules. The language to be used in the arbitral proceedings shall be English.

These Terms & Conditions, 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 Terms & Conditions. 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.  

16.7. Severability of Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Provisions. If any term, clause or provision of this Section 16 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 Section 16 will remain valid and enforceable.
