any other person or entity.
You are responsible for implementing reasonable measures for securing the wallet, vault

Currently, only English versions of any communications with the Company is considered

IQO Risks By purchasing, owning, and using IQO, you expressly acknowledge and assume the
1. Risk of Losing Access to IQO Due to Loss of Private Key(s), Custodial Error or
A private key, or a combination of private keys, is necessary to control and dispose of
IQO stored in your digital wallet or vault. Accordingly, loss of requisite private key(s)
associated with your digital wallet or vault storing IQO will result in loss of such IQO.
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 IQO. Any errors or malfunctions caused by or otherwise related to
the digital wallet or vault you choose to receive and store IQO in, including your own
failure to properly maintain or use such digital wallet or vault, may also result in the loss
of your IQO. Additionally, your failure to follow precisely the procedures set forth in for
buying and receiving IQO, including, for instance, if you provide the wrong address for
the receiving IQO, or provides an address that is not ERC-20 compatible, may result in
the loss of your IQO.
2. Risks Associated with the Ethereum Protocol
Because IQO is based on the Ethereum protocol, any malfunction, breakdown or
abandonment of the Ethereum protocol may have a material adverse effect on the
platform or IQO. Moreover, advances in cryptography, or technical advances such as the
development of quantum computing, could present risks to IQO and the platform,
including the utility of IQO for obtaining services, by rendering ineffective the
cryptographic consensus mechanism that underpins the Ethereum protocol.
3. Risk of Mining Attacks
As with other decentralized cryptographic tokens based on the Ethereum protocol, IQO is
susceptible to attacks by miners in the course of validating IQO transactions on the
Ethereum blockchain, including, but not limited, to double-spend attacks, majority
mining power attacks, and selfish-mining attacks. Any successful attacks present a risk to
the platform and IQO, including, but not limited to, accurate execution and recording of
transactions involving IQO.
4. Risk of Hacking and Security Weaknesses
Hackers or other malicious groups or organizations may attempt to int erfere with the
platform or IQO in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, malware attacks,
denial of service attacks, consensus-based attacks, Sybil attacks, smurfing, and spoofing.
Furthermore, because the platform is based on open-source software, there is a risk that a
third party or a member of the Involve Team may intentionally or unintentionally
introduce weaknesses into the core infrastructure of the platform, which could negativ ely
affect the platform and IQO, including the utility of IQO for obtaining the Company’s
5. Risks Associated with Markets for IQO
If secondary trading of IQO 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 third-parties do
ascribe an external exchange value to IQO (e.g., as denominated in a digital or fiat
currency), such value may be extremely volatile.
6. Risk of Uninsured Losses
Unlike bank accounts or accounts at some other financial institutions, IQO 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
Company, to offer recourse to you.
7. Risks Associated with Uncertain Regulations and Enforcement Actions
The regulatory status of IQO 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 Involve platform and IQO. 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
IQO. Regulatory actions could negatively impact the platform and IQO in various ways,
including, for purposes of illustration only, through a determination that the purcha se,
sale and delivery of IQO constitutes unlawful activity or that IQO are a regulated
instrument that require registration or licensing of those instruments or some or all of the
parties involved in the purchase, sale and delivery thereof. The Company 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.
8. Risks Arising from Taxation
The tax characterization of IQO is uncertain. You must seek your own tax advice in
connection with purchasing IQO, which may result in adverse tax consequences to you,
including withholding taxes, income taxes and tax reporting requirements.
9. Risk of Competing Platforms
It is possible that alternative platforms could be established that utilize the same open
source code and protocol underlying the platform and attempt to facilitate services that
are materially similar to the Company’s services.
10. Risks Arising from Lack of Governance Rights
Because IQO confer no governance rights of any kind with respect to the Involve
platform or the Company, all decisions involving the Company’s products or services
within the platform or the Company itself will be made by the Company at its sole
discretion. These decisions could adversely affect the platform and the utility of any IQO
you own, including their utility for obtaining the Company’s services.
11. Unanticipated Risks
Cryptographic tokens such as IQO are a new and untested technology. In addition to the
risks included in this Annex A of these Terms, there are other risks associated with your
purchase, possession and use of IQO, including unanticipated risks. Such risks may
further materialize as unanticipated variations or combinations of the risks discussed in
this Annex A of these Terms.
