By accessing the Platform and the Website you acknowledge that you have read these Terms and that you agree to be bound by them. Any violation of these Terms may be enforced by Etalon to the fullest extent allowed by law.
The main purpose of the Etalon platform ("the Platform") is to revolutionize the way critical data is treated by centralizing storage in extremely secure hybrid libraries and decentralizing authorization and operation processes with the use of the blockchain technology. Etalon will secure the resources for the development and operation of the Platform by distributing the Tokens in accordance with the Terms. The Tokens shall be used as utility tokens.

The only official and authorized website for the Token purchase is the Website. Failure to follow the instructions on the Website may limit, delay, or prevent the purchasers from purchasing the Tokens. Etalon shall in no way be responsible for any funds lost due to the purchaser's negligence, lack of diligence, or failure to follow any instructions issued by Etalon.

The Minimum Goal is reached if the ETH value of Tokens sold during the Presale Period is equal or bigger than 1500 ETH at the moment the Presale Period ends. If the Minimum Goal is reached, the purchasers will receive the Tokens to their wallet after the distribution is conducted. If the Minimum Goal is not reached, all contributed funds shall be returned to the purchasers to the same address from which the funds were sent within 15 business days after the end of the Sale Period.
The sale is limited to the purchase of approx. 600000 ETH worth of the Tokens.

By purchasing, holding and using the Tokens, you expressly acknowledge and assume the risks described in the following paragraphs. Etalon hereby expressly disclaims any and all responsibility for any direct or consequential loss or damage of any kind occurring in light of the aforementioned risks.
Risks associated with unfavorable regulatory actions. The regulatory status of the blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies is unclear or unregulated in many jurisdictions, which is why it is impossible to predict possible regulatory actions, that could negatively impact the use of the Platform and Website and the possession, use and value of the Tokens. There is a risk that in some jurisdictions the Tokens might now or in the future be considered securities. Etalon does not warrant or guarantee that the Tokens are not considered securities in all jurisdictions. It is your sole responsibility to determine if the purchase and possession of the Tokens is legal in your jurisdiction. If you establish that the purchase and possession of the Tokens is not legal in your jurisdiction, you should not purchase them. Purchasing and possessing Tokens may also result in unfavorable tax consequences. You are solely responsible for seeking adequate tax advice regarding the tax status of the Tokens in your jurisdiction.
Risks associated with the Ethereum Platform. The Tokens are issued on the Ethereum Platform, therefore any malfunction, breakdown or abandonment of the Ethereum Platform may have a material adverse effect on, cause malfunctioning of or prevent access to or the loss of the Platform, Website or the Tokens.
Risks associated with security weaknesses, theft, hacking and mining attacks. The Platform, Website and Tokens may unintentionally include weaknesses or bugs in the source code interfering with the use of or causing the loss of the Tokens. Hackers or other groups or organizations may attempt to interfere with the Platform, Website, Tokens and/or your third-party wallet in any number of ways, including without limitation denial of service attacks, Sybil attacks, spoofing, smurfing, malware attacks, or consensus - based attacks. The Ethereum Platform and other blockchain networks are susceptible to mining attacks, including but not limited to double-spend attacks, majority mining power attacks, selfish-mining attacks, and race-condition attacks, that present a risk to the Tokens.
Risks associated with liquidity. Third party exchanges that offer trading of cryptographic tokens are currently unregulated in many jurisdictions, which makes them more susceptible to unfavorable regulatory actions, fraud or manipulation. Etalon offers no guarantees that the Tokens will be listed or made available for exchange with other cryptographic tokens and/or fiat money, no guarantees with regards to the volume of such potential exchange and no warranties with regards to any exchange service providers.
Risks associated with the loss of value. Value of the Tokens may fluctuate and you may suffer loss in value of such acquired Tokens. Additionally, the loss of value of the ETH may impact the value of the Tokens.
Risks associated with uninsured losses. The Tokens are entirely uninsured. Etalon does not offer any indemnity in case of any losses in relation to the Tokens.
Risks associated with the insufficient interest in the Platform. It is possible that the Platform will not be used by a large number of individuals and other entities, which could negatively impact the development of the Platform and consequently the potential utility of the Tokens.
Risks associated with the inadequacy and/or incompletion of the Platform. The Platform is under development and may undergo significant changes, which means it may not meet your expectations regarding its form and functionality. Some of the features may never be developed, released or fully functional. Etalon does not offer any guarantees with respect to the features and functionalities of the Platform. Etalon may, at its sole discretion, due to any number of reasons, suspend the operations of the Platform and dissolve.
Unanticipated risks. The blockchain and cryptocurrencies are new and untested technology. In addition to the aforementioned risks, there are risks associated with the use of the Platform and the Website, and the purchase and possession of the Tokens, that are currently unforeseeable and can further materialize as unanticipated. Security
You are solely responsible for implementing reasonable measures for securing the wallet, vault or other storage mechanisms you use to receive and hold the Tokens, including any private keys or other credentials required to access such storage mechanisms. Etalon is in no way responsible for any security breach to your storage mechanisms and for any subsequent loss of the Tokens. Privacy
Etalon may determine at its sole discretion, the personal information it needs to collect in order to comply with applicable laws, regulations and policies, to determine your eligibility to purchase Tokens and to execute its sale. You agree to provide such information promptly upon Viberate's request and acknowledge that your use of the Platform, the Website and the sale and/or use of Tokens may be suspended until such information is taken under advisement and eligibility to purchase and/or use Tokens is determined. Taxes
The purchase price you pay for the Tokens is exclusive of all applicable taxes. You are solely responsible for all your factual and potential tax obligations. Etalon is under no conditions bound to withhold, collect, report or remit any tax arising from your purchase of the Tokens and/or to compensate you for your tax obligations. WARRANTY DISCLAIMER
