These Site Terms apply solely to your access to, and use of, the website or mobile application of Cryptonovae SAS, a French company (“Cryptonovae,” “we” or “our“), located at www.cryptonovae.com and any other sites or mobile applications operated by Cryptonovae which link to these Site Terms (the “Sites“) and our online services (the Services). These Site Terms do not alter in any way the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with Cryptonovae, or its subsidiaries or affiliates, for products, services or otherwise. If you are using the Sites on behalf of any entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to accept these Site Terms on such entity’s behalf, and that such entity agrees to be responsible to Cryptonovae for any violations of these Site Terms.
Cryptonovae reserves the right to change or modify any of these Site Terms or any policy or guideline of the Sites, at any time and in its sole discretion. If Cryptonovae makes changes to these Site Terms, we will provide notice of such changes, such as by posting a notice on the Sites or updating the “Last Updated” date, which may be listed on the Sites. Your continued use of our Sites following the posting of changes or modifications will confirm your acceptance of such changes or modifications. Therefore, you should frequently review the Site Terms and applicable policies whenever you access the Sites and at least every thirty (30) days to make sure that you understand the terms and conditions that will apply to you and your use of the Sites. If you do not agree to the amended terms, you must stop using the Sites.
ARTICLE 1. SERVICES; SECURITIES OFFERINGS
Among the Services, this Sites present information regarding potential investments in Cryptonovae. These investments, which are securities under U.S. securities laws, will be represented by cryptographic digital tokens (Cryptonovae Tokens), which are a new series of Ethereum blockchain-based smart contract digital tokens meeting the ERC-20 standard as modified to meet transfer restriction requirements under applicable U.S. securities laws.
By participating in a Cryptonovae Tokens investment through the Sites you agree and understand that each Cryptonovae Token offering has its own terms, rules and risks and it is your responsibility to carefully review all terms, rules, risk factors and offering documents and decide on your own if you agree to them.
Your decision to participate in an offering of Cryptonovae does not mean that you will be permitted to participate in such offering. Our decisions to permit your participation are subject to, among other things, demonstration to our satisfaction that you meet legal requirements for participation, consent of relevant third parties, execution of definitive documentation, and our discretion. We make no representation or warranty that the potential transaction you have identified will take place, or that if it takes place that you will be allowed to participate. If you are offered the opportunity to participate in a transaction, you will be required to sign additional documentation. Cryptonovae management decisions are final in all matters relating to the Sites, Services, investments and other activities related to the Sites.
The securities associated with any offering of Cryptonovae in which you participate will be governed by the terms and conditions set forth in the applicable investment documents related to the specific offering provided to you. You may need to complete several steps to purchase Cryptonovae Tokens in a specific offering including, but not limited to, (i) completing Cryptonovae’s user registration process, which includes you providing identification and qualification information to Cryptonovae, (ii) entering into offering agreements, (iii) funding one or more investments in fiat currency or a specified cryptocurrency, (iv) confirming an intention to move forward with participation in the offering at the closing, if required; (v) creating a digital asset wallet with a third party, and (vii) providing other information to Cryptonovae or taking other action as requested throughout the offering process.
The Cryptonovae Tokens offered on the Sites have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act) in reliance on the exempted provisions of Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated thereunder, and/or Regulation S. Securities sold through private placements are restricted and not publicly traded and are therefore illiquid. Neither the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission nor any state securities commission or other regulatory authority has approved, passed upon or endorsed the merits of any securities offering on these Sites.
The Cryptonovae investment opportunity being offered are highly speculative in nature, involve a high degree of risk and should be purchased only by persons who can afford to lose their entire investment. There can be no assurance that Cryptonovae’s business objectives will be achieved or that a secondary market will ever develop for the Interests, whether via the Cryptonovae Website, via third party registered broker-dealers or otherwise. Investing in private placements requires high risk tolerance, low liquidity concerns, and long-term commitments. The Interests being sold are not insured, may lose value, and there is no bank or other guarantee.

In no event shall the aggregate liability of Cryptonovae, whether in contract, warranty, tort (including negligence, whether active, passive or imputed), product liability, strict liability or other theory, arising out of or relating to the use of or inability to use the sites or the services or to these site terms exceed any compensation you pay, if any, to Cryptonovae for access to or use of the sites.
There are risks associated with using an internet based blockchain protocol (including the Cryptonovae we may create for you implementing a customized ERC-20 standard), including but not limited to, risks relating to hardware, software and internet connections, the risk of malicious software introduction, and the risk that third parties may obtain unauthorized access to information stored within your Account or the digital assets stored in your Wallet. You accept and acknowledge that Cryptonovae will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions, delays or third-party fraud you may experience caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control.
CRYPTONOVAE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY LOSS AND TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR, AND WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR, ANY DAMAGES ARISING FROM ANY DECISIONS OR ACTIONS MADE BY YOU BASED ON CRYPTONOVAE SITES CONTENT OR INFORMATION ON CRYPTONOVAE OFFERING DOCUMENT OR THROUGH USE OF CRYPTOCURRENCY OR CRYPTONOVAES INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY LOSSES, DAMAGES OR CLAIMS ARISING FROM: (A) USER ERROR SUCH AS FORGOTTEN PASSWORDS, INCORRECTLY CONSTRUCTED TRANSACTIONS, INCORRECT CRYPTOCURRENCY WALLET ADDRESSES, BANK WIRE INFORMATION OR MISTYPED ADDRESSES; (B) SERVER FAILURE OR DATA LOSS, (C) CORRUPTED WALLET FILES, (D) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO SITES OR SERVICES, (E) ANY UNAUTHORIZED THIRD PARTY ACTIVITIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE USE OF VIRUSES, PHISHING, BRUTEFORCING OR OTHER MEANS OF CYBER ATTACK AGAINST THE CRYPTONOVAE SITES OR ANY ASSOCIATED SERVICES, INCLUDING THE CRYPTONOVAE TOKENS.

ARTICLE 7. RISKS
7.1. OVERALL RISKS
You understand that CRYPTONOVAE tokens, blockchain technology and other associated and related technologies are new, untested, and outside of CRYPTONOVAE’s exclusive control, and that adverse changes in the technology, broadly construed, will excuse CRYPTONOVAE’s performance under this Contract.
There are several risks inherent in the Project and the Initial Token Offering. You acknowledge that you have been warned of, understand, and accept those risks, which include, by way of example and not by way of limitation, the risks outlined below.
Due to unforeseeable material, conceptual, technical, and commercial changes before the final release, you do understand and accept that an upgrade of CRYPTONOVAE tokens may be required and that, if you decide not to participate in such an upgrade, you may no longer be able to use your CRYPTONOVAE tokens and that non-upgraded CRYPTONOVAE tokens may lose their functionality in part or in full.
You expressly acknowledge that the Initial Token Offering and the Project as presented on the website, and in any other informational document (such as the whitepaper, short paper, and more), may not come to fruition due to unforeseeable circumstances or may have to be abandoned due to technical, legal, or regulatory constraints, preventing the issuance of the CRYPTONOVAE tokens or their use as anticipated.
In addition, the technologies being used for the development of the Project, including blockchain, are evolving at a fast pace and innovations are constantly being introduced. Consequently, the features described above should be deemed purely illustrative and are not to be taken as established for use.
- LEGAL RISKS
Blockchain technologies, crypto-currencies, and projects financed through cryptocurrencies have been the subject of close scrutiny by various regulatory bodies around the world, including within the European Union.
There is a risk that in some jurisdictions the CRYPTONOVAE tokens might be considered to be a “security” or other regulated investment, either now or in the future, or might be considered to be some other type of regulated instrument.
CRYPTONOVAE believes, but does not give representations, warranties, or guarantees to this effect, that CRYPTONOVAE tokens are not a security or another form of regulated investment in relevant jurisdictions, with the exceptions mentioned above and in which the acquisition of CRYPTONOVAE tokens is prohibited, due to high local legal uncertainties regarding obtaining, sale, and usage of cryptographic tokens.
You are responsible for verifying, in the country of which you are a national or in which you are incorporated, as the case may be, as well as in any country in which you reside or conduct business, the local legislation, including tax laws and regulations, and bear the risk that CRYPTONOVAE tokens could be considered, now or in the future, a security or other regulated investment or instrument, or generate tax liability, in your jurisdiction.
Based on CRYPTONOVAE’s current understanding that CRYPTONOVAE tokens are not securities or another regulated investment when issued, CRYPTONOVAE does not intend to attempt to comply with securities or regulated investment offering laws in any jurisdiction; however, due to the continually changing regulatory environment worldwide, CRYPTONOVAE reserves the right to decide to register, obtain a license, or otherwise take action to attempt to comply with any new law or regulation that appears to apply the CRYPTONOVAE tokens and that could have a material adverse effect on (i) the website’s ability to conduct the Initial Token Offering and/or (ii) CRYPTONOVAE token holders’ ability to use their tokens.
- RISKS OF THEFT AND HACKING
Hackers or criminal groups or organizations may attempt to interfere with your wallet, the website or the availability of CRYPTONOVAE tokens in several ways, including, but not limited to denial of service attacks, Sybil attacks, malware attacks or consensus-based attacks, etc. CRYPTONOVAE cannot be held liable to you for such third-party actions.
- RISKS OF SECURITY WEAKNESSES IN THE WEBSITE AND CRYPTONOVAE TOKENS’ SOURCE CODE OR ANY ASSOCIATED SOFTWARE AND/OR INFRASTRUCTURE
There is a risk that third parties may intentionally or unintentionally introduce weaknesses or bugs into the source code that will interfere with the use of CRYPTONOVAE tokens or cause their loss. Again, CRYPTONOVAE cannot be held liable for such third-party actions.
- RISK OF MINING ATTACKS
As with other decentralized crypto-currencies, the blockchain which is used for the CRYPTONOVAE tokens, is susceptible to mining attacks, including but not limited to double-spend attacks, majority mining power attacks, “selfish-mining” attacks, and race condition attacks. Any successful attacks present a risk to the CRYPTONOVAE tokens. CRYPTONOVAE cannot be held liable for such third-party actions.
- RISK OF LOW OR NO LIQUIDITY
CRYPTONOVAE gives no warranties and/or guarantees that CRYPTONOVAE tokens will be listed or made available for exchange for other cryptographic tokens and/or fiat money, nor with regards to the volume of any such exchange.
Lack of liquidity may make it difficult or impossible for you to dispose of your CRYPTONOVAE tokens. CRYPTONOVAE will not intervene to facilitate the exchange of CRYPTONOVAE tokens for other cryptographic tokens or for fiat currency on third party exchanges. Moreover, any such exchange could be subject to poorly understood regulatory oversight. You hereby affirm your understanding that exchanging CRYPTONOVAE tokens for other cryptographic tokens and/or fiat money could expose you to fraud and/or failure of a transaction on any such exchange, CRYPTONOVAE does not give any warranties and/or guarantees with regards to any exchange service provider.
- RISK OF LOSS OF VALUE
Even though CRYPTONOVAE tokens are not financial instruments, they might be awarded certain monetary value by Purchasers and the market. CRYPTONOVAE provides no warranty in respect to CRYPTONOVAE token value and warns you that the value of CRYPTONOVAE tokens may fluctuate for a variety of reasons and that CRYPTONOVAE tokens may also lose their value entirely.
- RISK OF CHANGE/FEES
When the issuance or acquisition of tokens is expressed in legal tender, and regardless of the currency used to acquire CRYPTONOVAE tokens, foreign and fiat exchange risks will be borne by the purchaser. For the same amount of fiat contribution, depending on the variation in the exchange rates used to calculate the number CRYPTONOVAE tokens associated to this contribution, higher or lower exchange rates may apply.
- RISK OF UNINSURED LOSSES
CRYPTONOVAE tokens are entirely uninsured. At present, there are no public or private insurance agents providing Purchasers with coverage against a loss of CRYPTONOVAE tokens or a loss of value.
- INTERNET TRANSMISSION RISKS
You acknowledge that there are risks associated with using CRYPTONOVAE tokens, including, but not limited to, the failure of hardware, software, and Internet connections. You acknowledge and accept that CRYPTONOVAE shall not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions, or delays you may experience when using CRYPTONOVAE tokens, howsoever caused.
- RISK OF LOSS OF CRYPTONOVAE TOKENS DUE TO LOSS OF CREDENTIALS
You can only access your account using the credentials you have selected. You understand that if your credentials (and in particular your private key) are lost or stolen, the CRYPTONOVAE tokens associated with your account will be unrecoverable and permanently lost. We thus recommend that you store your credentials securely in one or more backup locations that are geographically separated from your work location and that you do not share these credentials with anyone. There is no recovery mechanism for lost keys, CRYPTONOVAE will not be able to help you retrieve or reconstruct a private key and/or provide you with access to any lost CRYPTONOVAE tokens.
- SPECULATIVE PARTICIPATION
Any participation in an Initial Token Offering is highly speculative. Purchases of CRYPTONOVAE tokens should be considered only if you are able to make a long-term commitment and are aware of the risk factors involved in such an Initial Token Offering. You should only purchase CRYPTONOVAE tokens if you are able to bear the risk of loss of your entire initial purchase and have no need for immediate liquidity of such purchase.
- UNANTICIPATED RISKS
Crypto-currencies and cryptographic tokens are a new, untested technology. In addition to the risks stipulated above, there may be additional risks that CRYPTONOVAE cannot foresee and for which it assumes no liability.
Investing in YAE tokens involves the risk of partial or total loss of the investment. There can be no assurance as to the liquidity of the tokens acquired during the offer, the existence of a secondary market for such tokens, the value of the tokens acquired during the offer and the equivalent value of these tokens in foreign currency. The YAE tokens do not constitute financial instruments within the meaning of European regulations (MIFID) and do not confer any other rights than those described in our pitch deck and technical white paper. In addition, the regulatory framework applicable to the offer and to the tokens and the tax regime applicable to the holding of the tokens are not currently defined in certain jurisdictions.

ARTICLE 9. FORCE MAJEURE
(a) Force majeure is any event beyond the parties’ reasonable control, which they cannot reasonably foresee, avoid, or overcome, provided that its occurrence makes it impossible for at least one of the parties to fulfill its obligations to the other.
(b) In the context of this Contract, force majeure includes any event that adversely affects purchase execution (e.g., an earthquake, storm, or other extreme natural phenomenon, embargoes, riots, substantial change in the price of products such as software or hardware, failure of electrical supply, telecommunications, or other utilities, armed conflicts, labor disputes, or other industrial disturbances, acts or orders of the government, changes in laws or regulations, changes in blockchain technology (broadly construed), or changes in the Ethereum network or any other blockchain protocols, etc.).
(c) In the event that a party finds its performance to be impossible due to an event of force majeure, it shall promptly notify the other party by any and all means necessary, and the parties will then negotiate, in good faith, any changes required to ensure the continuity of their obligations.
(d) If, however, such impossibility exceeds three (3) months, the more diligent party may, without incurring any liability, terminate the contract between them, as reflected in this Contract, by giving notice in writing to the other party.
