10. Disclaimers Concerning Company Information and Security Token Offerings (STO). SecurityTokenAcademy.com is a platform for information about the new world of STOs. We are not a registered broker-dealer or investment advisor. We are not an STO or blockchain platform, nor can you purchase or invest through our website.

The scope and degree of government regulation of STOs in the United States and internationally is subject to a high degree of uncertainty. Purchases of STOs may be regulated or even illegal in the country in which you live. You are responsible for knowing and complying with the laws in the country where you live. Moreover, the regulatory protections offered to traditional investors may not be available to participants in STOs. While all investments entail risk. STO purchases can entail a greater risk of losing all of the money you contribute or invest.

Users agree that they will not use the Site to market services, including investment advisory or broker-dealer services, that might cause Security Token Academy to be required to register as an investment advisor, broker dealer or otherwise with the SEC, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) or any state or foreign jurisdiction, or to be treated as an underwriter or otherwise regulated by any or all of them.

SECURITY TOKEN Academy does not offer STO investment or purchase advice. Nor does it endorse or recommend investment in or the purchase or sale of STOs offered by any company nor does it opine on the suitability of any STO investment or purchase for any individual investor or purchaser. The posting of information regarding any company’s STO on an Security Token Academy Site should not be construed as an endorsement or recommendation of that company or its STO for any purpose whatsoever, either for purposes of investment or otherwise, and no information on our Sites should be construed as general or specific financial, legal, tax or accounting advice of any kind. Any person accessing our Sites is strongly encouraged to consult with their own financial advisor, tax advisor and/or attorney before making any decision to purchase or invest in any STO.

The information contained on Security Token Academy’s Sites may relate to the products and services of a person or entity that is located in a jurisdiction other than that in which you are located. Accordingly, any rules for the protection of purchasers, customers or investors that apply in the jurisdiction in which you are located may not apply in relation to such products and services. All investments entail risk. Purchases in STOs in general entail a higher degree of risk than other investments. The scope and degree of government regulation of STOs in the United States and internationally as of the date of these Terms of Use is subject to a high degree of uncertainty. Accordingly, the regulatory protections offered to traditional investors may not necessarily be available to Purchasers in STOs.

Companies on this Site are often early stage companies and are, therefore, subject to risks inherent in investing in any early-stage company as well as other risks specific to their business and operations. STOs, in addition to being highly speculative and subject to extreme price volatility, may be highly illiquid, requiring that they be held for an indefinite period of time or used only for non-essential purposes. Therefore, no one accessing Security Token Academy’s Sites should purchase tokens in any of the companies on this Site unless they have no need for liquidity and can sustain a total loss of their investment.

This list of prohibitions and requirements above is illustrative and not intended to be complete or exclusive. Security Token Academy reserves the right to prohibit your access to the Sites for any action that Security Token Academy, in its sole judgment, determines to be inappropriate or disruptive to the Sites, or to any other User.

You agree to notify Security Token Academy immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security of which you become aware.

Without limiting the foregoing, we have the right to fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity or other information of anyone posting any materials on or through the Sites. YOU WAIVE AND HOLD HARMLESS SECURITY TOKEN ACADEMY AND ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSEES AND SERVICE PROVIDERS FROM ANY CLAIMS RESULTING FROM ANY ACTION TAKEN BY SECURITY TOKEN ACADEMY AND ANY OF THE FOREGOING PARTIES DURING, OR TAKEN AS A CONSEQUENCE OF, INVESTIGATIONS BY EITHER SECURITY TOKEN ACADEMY OR SUCH PARTIES OR LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES.

By using the Sites, you hereby acknowledge and agree that you may be exposed to content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable to you. Your access to the Sites is undertaken at your own risk and Security Token Academy is not responsible for any offensive or otherwise objectionable materials in the Content.

Security Token Academy reserves the right to terminate, in whole or in part, the Sites, and the Content, without notice to you. UPON ANY TERMINATION OR SUSPENSION, ANY INFORMATION (INCLUDING USER CONTENT) THAT YOU HAVE SUBMITTED TO THE SITES OR THAT IS RELATED TO YOUR ACCOUNT MAY NO LONGER BE ACCESSED BY YOU. Furthermore, we will have no obligation to maintain any information stored in our database related to your account or to forward any information to you or any third party.

Any suspension, termination or cancellation will not affect your obligations to us under these Terms of Use relating to ownership, warranty disclaimers, indemnification, and limitations of liability, which by their sense and context are intended to survive such suspension, termination or cancellation.

 

13. General. Security Token Academy controls and operates these Sites from its headquarters in the State of California in the United States. It makes no representation that the Content is appropriate or will be available for use in locations other than the United States.

You may bring any disputes, actions, claims, or causes of action related to this Agreement or in connection with these Sites only in the federal and state courts located in Los Angeles County, California. However, we believe that non-appealable, binding arbitration is a more cost efficient, quicker more final and easier to understand system than litigation in the courts. Therefore, you may opt to bring any dispute to your choice of two private arbitration providers, at the facility closest to your home in the continental United States. If you choose arbitration you will be giving up your right to a trial by jury (for which you must pay in the court system). Acceptable arbitration providers are JAMS under their Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures or American Arbitration Association under their Expedited Commercial Rules of Arbitration. If any provision of these Terms of Use is held by an agreed upon arbitrator, or a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, then such provision(s) shall be construed, as nearly as possible, to reflect the intentions of the parties, with all other provisions remaining in full force and effect. The failure of Security Token Academy to enforce any right or provision in these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by Security Token Academy in writing.

 

15. No Third-party Beneficiaries. Except as expressly provided in these Terms of Use, there shall be no third-party beneficiaries to the Terms of Use. We have the right to assign our rights or delegate any of our responsibilities under these Terms of Use to an affiliate or other third party or in connection with a merger, consolidation or reorganization of Security Token Academy or the sale of substantially all of our assets.

 

16. Entire Agreement and Interpretation.These Terms of Use comprise the entire agreement between you and Security Token Academy and supersede all prior or contemporaneous negotiations, discussions or agreements, if any, between the parties regarding the subject matter contained herein. This Agreement is personal to you, which means that you may not assign your rights or obligations under this Agreement to anyone. In the event that any provision of these Terms of Use, or the application thereof, becomes or is declared by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, void or unenforceable, the remainder of these Terms of Use will continue in full force and effect and the application of such provision to other persons or circumstances will be interpreted to reasonably give effect to the intent of the parties hereto.
