#Thank you for supporting Qointum!
We, NewGamePlus Inc. (our company), provide the following Terms and Conditions (the “Terms”) to govern the crowdfunding of our product Qointum, which involves the use of all Qointum software downloaded or accessed from this website (the "Software"), and also involves rewarding ℚoins and ℚoinXs (the "Tokens") which operate the Qointum networks to you (the "Backer") who pledge by sending Bitcoin, Ethereum or Litecoin (the "Pledges"), to the addresses displayed on our [crowdfunding page](https://qointum.com). By participating in the crowdfunding, you expressly acknowledge and represent that you have carefully reviewed the Terms, as well as our [Qoin Distribution](/design/dev/#qoin-distribution), and fully understand the risks, costs, and benefits of pledging and agree to be bound by these Terms.
You further represent and warrant that, to the extent permitted by law, you are authorized to pledge in your relevant jurisdiction, are of legal age to be bound by these Terms, and are not pledging as a speculative investment.
Do not pledge if you are not an expert in dealing with cryptographic tokens and blockchain-based software systems, we do not provide any guarantee of assistance in the usage of the Software.
The Pledges will only be refunded (in total minus network transaction fees, denominated in the pledged currency) in the case that our budget goal displayed on our crowdfunding page has not been 100% met and the crowdfunding period has ended. Otherwise, the Pledges are final and there shall be no refunds except as required by law.
The Tokens do **not** represent equity in our company, they are required for operation of the Qointum networks such as for transactions and decentralized consensus security. Backers must not have any expectation of influence over the governance of our company or our products. In our local jurisdiction the Pledges do **not** constitute an investment and the Tokens rewarded are **not** considered securities. The Tokens are not guaranteed to have any value outside of being required for operation of the Qointum networks.
The Pledges will be collected and publicly visible at our [multi-signature Bitcoin](https://blockchain.info/address/35P9vjKfm1ekuTHKt4NDqLkdjsWAu3XTAE), [Ethereum](https://etherscan.io/address/0xA74949F7Ab2337433B2728A7Ea71Bcf568614175) and [Litecoin](https://live.blockcypher.com/ltc/address/LLw2kLyLHCpGRtNVd9aZYrGTyBxbTnGsyg) exodus addresses. Withdrawals from these addresses to our private wallets will only occur after our budget goal has been 100% met and the crowdfunding period has ended.
- risk of being unable to approve a pledge due to the Backer's inability to provide a cryptographic signature verifiable against the sender address, such as when the pledge was sent via a third-party exchange service
- risk of losing access to the Tokens due to the Backer's loss of Qointum website password or local device wallet password
- risk of unauthorized access to the Backer's Qointum website account or local device wallet
- risk of regulatory action in one or more jurisdictions
- risk of theft of the Pledges from our private wallets
- risk of discontinued development of Qointum due to a diminishment in the value of the Pledges
- risk of security weaknesses in the Software or its applied cryptography
- risk of insufficient user interest in Qointum and its decentralized applications
- risk that Qointum will not meet your expectations due to design changes during its continued development
- risk that Qointum may never be completed or released

The failure by either party to enforce any provision of the Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that or any other provision.

If any provision of the Terms is held to be unenforceable or invalid that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent possible and the other provisions will remain in full force and effect.
Any action or proceeding arising out of or related to the Terms or the crowdfunding, or the Software, or the Tokens, must be brought in the courts of British Columbia, Canada, and you consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts. Any cause of action you may have must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises.
