GIBF GP, Inc. SAFT
Part III: Additional Legally Binding Terms
The Purchaser agrees to the following additional legally binding terms in connection with its/his/her purchase of the SAFT:
1. SAFT Purchase.
1.1. Purchase. The undersigned Purchaser hereby purchases pursuant to this Purchase Agreement the SAFT sold in the offering (the “SAFT Offering”) by the Company, for future delivery of the Tokens in the amount and purchase price set forth in the Purchaser Questionnaire portion of this Purchase Agreement (the “Purchaser Questionnaire”).
1.2. Acceptance of Agreement; Conditions. The Purchaser understands and agrees that this SAFT purchase is made subject to the terms and conditions contained in this Purchase Agreement, as well as the SAFT Term Sheet, the SAFT Risk Factors, and/or any other offering materials provided to you with respect to the Tokens, including, but not limited to, the whitepaper describing the Tokens and the whitepaper describing the network (collectively, the “Offering Materials”), and that the Company shall have the right to accept or reject, in its sole discretion, the Purchaser’s SAFT purchase for any reason or no reason, in whole or in part, and at any time prior to its acceptance.
2. Representations, Warranties and Covenants of the Purchaser. The Purchaser hereby represents and warrants to, and agrees with, the Sponsoring Parties (as defined below) as follows:
2.1. Reliance. The Company and their respective officers, directors, principals, members, employees, agents, and other affiliates will be relying on the information, representations, warranties and covenants of the Purchaser in this Purchase Agreement for many purposes.
2.2. Binding Obligation. The Purchase Agreement shall become binding and enforceable against the Purchaser in accordance with its terms on the date, if any, that the Company accepts this Purchase Agreement in whole or in part. The Purchaser understands that, upon acceptance by the Company, the Purchaser is not entitled to cancel, terminate or revoke this Purchase Agreement.
2.3. Regulatory Issues.
(a) FDIC and SIPC Matters. The SAFT is not legal tender, is not backed by the government, and accounts and value balances are not subject to Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or Securities Investor Protection Corporation protections.
(b) Other Federal and State Regulatory Matters. The Purchaser acknowledges and understands that the SAFT is not registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and that the Company is not registered or licensed with any federal or state regulator as an investment adviser, broker-dealer, money services business, money transmitter, or virtual currency business. As a result, the Purchaser will not be afforded the full set of protections provided to the clients and customers of such entities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended (the “Advisers Act”), and any similar or applicable state laws.
(c) International Regulatory Matters. The regulatory risks described in this Section 2.3 take into consideration U.S. law only. It is anticipated that the Tokens will also be sold or resold outside the United States, which could subject the Company and their respective officers, directors, principals, members, employees, agents, and other affiliates or the Tokens to non-U.S. legal requirements, which could be significant. Non-U.S. regulation could lead to the same types of changes and outcomes described above with respect to U.S. regulation, and any of these outcomes would negatively affect the value of the Tokens and/or cause the Sponsoring Parties to cease operations.
2.4. Restrictions on Transfer.
(a) The Purchaser acknowledges and is aware that there are substantial restrictions on the transferability of the SAFT, and there will be no public market for the SAFT for U.S. Purchasers. The SAFT will not be registered under the Securities Act, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This means that holders of the SAFT may not transfer the SAFT to any “U.S. Person,” within the meaning of Rule 902(a)(k) under the Securities Act; provided that holders of the SAFT may transfer the SAFT to U.S. Persons that are “accredited investors” as defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D under the Securities Act and in compliance with applicable U.S. securities laws.
(b) The Purchaser acknowledges and is aware that disposition of the SAFT may constitute engaging in a virtual currency business requiring a license under the laws of New York, another state, or foreign country.
(c) The Purchaser acknowledges and is aware that any transfer made in violation of the transfer provisions of the Purchase Agreement will be void.
2.5. Authorization; No Conflict.
(a) Authorization of Individuals. If the Purchaser is an individual:

The Purchaser certifies that the Purchaser has completed and submitted any required waiver of local privacy laws that could otherwise prevent disclosure of information to a Company and their respective officers, directors, principals, members, employees, agents, and other affiliates, the IRS or any other governmental authority for purposes of Chapter 3, Chapter 4 or Chapter 61 of the Code (including without limitation in connection with FATCA, as defined below) or any intergovernmental agreement entered into in connection with the implementation of the FATCA (an “IGA”), and any other documentation required to establish an exemption from, or reduction in, withholding tax or to permit the Company to comply with information reporting requirements pursuant to Chapter 3, Chapter 4 or Chapter 61 of the Code (including, without limitation, in connection with FATCA or any IGA).

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law: (i) in no event will the Company and their respective officers, directors, principals, members, employees, agents, and other affiliates be liable for any indirect, special, incidental, consequential, or exemplary damages of any kind (including, but not limited to, where related to loss of revenue, income or profits, loss of use or data, or damages for business interruption) arising out of or in any way related to the sale of the SAFT or otherwise related to these terms, regardless of the form of action, whether based in contract, tort (including, but not limited to, simple negligence, whether active, passive or imputed), or any other legal or equitable theory (even if the party has been advised of the possibility of such damages and regardless of whether such damages were foreseeable); and (ii) in no event will the aggregate liability of the Company and their respective officers, directors, principals, members, employees, agents, and other affiliates (jointly), whether in contract, warranty, tort (including negligence, whether active, passive or imputed), or other theory, arising out of or relating to these terms exceed the amount purchaser pays to the company for the SAFT.
6.2. The limitations set forth in section 6.1 will not limit or exclude liability for the gross negligence, fraud or intentional, willful or reckless misconduct of the Company.
6.3. Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the limitations of Section 6 may not apply to the Purchaser.
7. Dispute Resolution & Arbitration. PLEASE READ SECTIONS 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 7.5, 7.6, 7.7, AND 7.8 CAREFULLY BECAUSE THEY CONTAIN ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS APPLICABLE ONLY TO INDIVIDUALS LOCATED, RESIDENT OR DOMICILED IN THE UNITED STATES. IF THE PURCHASER IS LOCATED, RESIDENT OR DOMICILED IN THE UNITED STATES, THIS SECTION REQUIRES THE PURCHASER TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH THE COMPANY AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH A PURCHASER CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM THE COMPANY.
7.1. 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, the Purchaser and the Company (i) waive the Purchaser’s and the Company’s respective rights to have any and all Disputes arising from or related to the terms of the Purchase Agreement or Offering Materials (the “Terms”) resolved in a court, and (ii) waive the Purchaser’s and the Company’s respective rights to a jury trial. Instead, the Purchaser and the Company will 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).
7.2. No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions, or Representative Actions. Any Dispute arising out of or related to the Terms is personal to the Purchaser 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.
7.3. Federal Arbitration Act. The Terms affect interstate commerce and the enforceability of this section 7 will be both substantively and procedurally governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the federal arbitration act, 9 U.S.C.. § 1 et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
7.4. Notice. Each party will notify the other party in writing of any Dispute within thirty (30) days of the date it arises, so that the parties can attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute informally. Notice to the Company shall be sent by email to the company at firstname.lastname@example.org . Notice to the Purchaser shall be by email to the then-current email address in the Purchaser’s account. The Purchaser’s notice must include (i) the Purchaser’s 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 the Purchaser is seeking. If the Purchaser and the Company cannot agree how to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after the date notice is received by the applicable party, then either the Purchaser or the Company may, as appropriate and in accordance with this Section 7, commence an arbitration proceeding or, to the extent specifically provided for in Section 7.1, file a claim in court.
7.5. Process. Any arbitration will occur in Delaware. Arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”), which are hereby incorporated by reference. The state and federal courts located in Delaware will have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award. The Purchaser may also litigate a Dispute in the small claims court located in the county where the Purchaser resides if the Dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court.
7.6. Authority of Arbitrator. As limited by the FAA, the Terms and the applicable JAMS rules, 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 action, which is prohibited by the Terms. 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.
7.7. Rules of JAMS. The rules of JAMS and additional information about JAMS are available on the JAMS website. By agreeing to be bound by the Terms, the Purchaser either (i) acknowledges and agrees that the Purchaser has read and understands the rules of JAMS, or (ii) waives its opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
7.8. Severability of Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Provisions. If any term, clause or provision of Section 7 is held invalid or unenforceable, it will be so held to the minimum extent required by law, and all other terms, clauses and provisions of Section 7 will remain valid and enforceable. Further, the waivers set forth in Section 7.2 are severable from the other provisions of the Terms and will remain valid and enforceable, except as prohibited by applicable law.
(a) Electronic Delivery. The Company and their respective officers, directors, principals, members, employees, agents, and other affiliates, each at its sole and absolute discretion, may provide any notices or other communications given or made to the Purchaser and deliver to the Purchaser (or the Purchaser’s designated agents) privacy statements, financial information (audited or otherwise), reports and other communications relating to any Sponsoring Party or otherwise relating to this Purchase Agreement (collectively, “Disclosures”) in electronic form, such as via email or posting to a password protected website.
(b) The Company and their respective officers, directors, principals, members, employees, agents, and other affiliates will send emails to the email address that the Purchaser has included on the Purchaser Questionnaire. If an email notification is undeliverable, delivery of the notice is not required to be made to the Purchaser’s postal mail address of record except as otherwise required by law. The Company and their respective officers, directors, principals, members, employees, agents, and other affiliates reserve the right to post communications on their respective websites without providing notice to the Purchaser, when permitted by law.
(c) The Purchaser agrees that all Disclosures provided to the Purchaser via email notification or the website will be deemed to have been good and effective delivery to the Purchaser when sent or posted, regardless of whether the Purchaser actually or timely receives or accesses the email notification.
(d) By signing this Purchase Agreement, the Purchaser consents to electronic delivery as described in the preceding sections, unless and until the Purchaser revokes its consent and/or waiver in writing to the Company.
(e) In so consenting, the Purchaser acknowledges that email messages are not secure and may contain computer viruses or other defects, may not be accurately replicated on other systems, or may be intercepted, deleted or interfered with, with or without the knowledge of the sender or the intended recipient. The Purchaser also acknowledges that an email from the Company and their respective officers, directors, principals, members, employees, agents, and other affiliates may be accessed by recipients other than the Purchaser and may be interfered with, may contain computer viruses or other defects and may not be successfully replicated on other systems.
(f) The Purchaser understands that if it has any doubts about the authenticity of an email purportedly sent by the Company and their respective officers, directors, principals, members, employees, agents, and other affiliates, the Purchaser should contact the purported sender immediately.
(g) The Purchaser agrees to be bound by any affirmation, assent or agreement that the Purchaser transmits to the Company or its affiliates by computer or other electronic device, including internet, telephonic and wireless devices, including, but not limited to, any consent the Purchaser gives to receive communications from the Company or any of its affiliates solely through electronic transmission. The Purchaser agrees that when the Purchaser clicks on an “I Agree,” “I Consent,” or other similarly worded button or entry field with its mouse, keystroke or other device, its agreement or consent will be legally binding and enforceable against it and will be the legal equivalent of the Purchaser’s handwritten signature on an agreement that is printed on paper. The Purchaser agrees that the Company and any of its affiliates may send the Purchaser electronic copies of any and all communications associated with its purchase of Tokens.
8.2. Revocation. Purchaser acknowledges and accepts that all purchases of the SAFT from the Company during the SAFT Offering are final, and there are no refunds or cancellations except as may be required by applicable law or regulation. Purchaser further acknowledges and accepts that the Company reserves the right to refuse or cancel Purchase Agreements at any time in its sole discretion.
8.3. Headings. Section and other headings contained in this Purchase Agreement are for reference only and are not intended to describe, interpret, define or limit the scope or intent of this Purchase Agreement.
8.4. Governing Law; Consent to Jurisdiction; Venue and Service of Process. THIS PURCHASE AGREEMENT SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH AND GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE WITHOUT REGARD TO ITS CONFLICTS OF LAW RULES, NOTWITHSTANDING THE PLACE WHERE THIS PURCHASE AGREEMENT MAY BE EXECUTED BY ANY PARTY. To the extent permissible under applicable law, the Purchaser hereby irrevocably agrees that any suit, action or proceeding (“Action”) with respect to this Purchase Agreement may, but need not, be resolved, whether by arbitration or otherwise, within the State of Delaware. Accordingly, the parties consent and submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts and any applicable arbitral body located within the State of Delaware. The Purchaser agrees and consents that service of process as provided by U.S. federal and Delaware law may be made upon the Purchaser in any Action and may not as a result claim that any Action has been brought in an inconvenient forum.
8.5. Entire Agreement. This Purchase Agreement along with the Offering Materials and any side letter or other similar agreement between the Purchaser and the Company constitute the entire agreement between the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter of this Purchase Agreement and may be amended only in writing, executed by all parties hereto.
8.6. Severability. Each provision of this Purchase Agreement (including without limitation each representation made in the Purchaser Questionnaire and each provision of or grant of authority by or in the Power of Attorney) shall be considered severable. If it is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction that any provision of this Purchase Agreement is invalid or unenforceable under any applicable law, then that provision shall (i) be deemed inoperative to the extent that it may conflict therewith and shall be deemed modified to conform with applicable law; and (ii) not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provisions of this Purchase Agreement, and to this extent the provisions of this Purchase Agreement shall be severable.
8.7. Successors and Assigns. This Purchase Agreement (i) shall be binding upon the Purchaser and the heirs, legal representatives, successors and permitted assigns of the Purchaser and shall inure to the benefit of the Company and its successors and assigns, (ii) shall survive the acceptance of the Purchaser as a purchaser of a SAFT, (iii) shall, if the Purchaser consists of more than one person, be the joint and several obligation of each, and (iv) may be executed in counterparts, all of which when taken together, shall be deemed one original.
