Token Sale Terms & Conditions
This "Token Sale Terms & Conditions" (the " T&Cs") is concluded between savedroid AG, a limited liability company (stock corporation) organized under the laws of Germany, having its seat in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, registered with the commercial register (Handelsregister) of the local court (Amtsgericht) Frankfurt am Main under HRB 103480, with business address at: Eschersheimer Landstraße 121, 60322 Frankfurt am Main, Germany (hereinafter "savedroid", "us", " we"), or any legal successor of savedroid, and any entity that fulfils the criteria set out in these T&Cs and accepts the terms provided herein (hereinafter "Participant", "Token Holder", "you"). Parties to the T&Cs are herein referred to individually as a "Party" and collectively as the " Parties".
savedroid develops and operates solutions including mobile applications that help its users among others to better save money and optimize spending.
The Participant provides payments to savedroid in connection with the Initial Token Sale ("ITS") of cryptographic tokens existent on the Ethereum blockchain that can enable usage of and interactions with certain services ("Services") to be implemented by savedroid on the savedroid website or mobile applications ("Ecosystem") after having closed the ITS. The cryptographic tokens are hereinafter referred to as " SVD" or "Token".
By accessing and using our website (https://ico.savedroid.com, the "Website") or participating in the ITS, Participants agree to these T&Cs. Please read the T&Cs carefully. If you do not agree to all of these terms, please do not use this Website or any information, links or content contained on this Website and do not participate in the ITS.
This document does not constitute a prospectus or offering or securities of any sort or any other form of capital investment product and is not a solicitation for investment.
The savedroid ITS represents a voluntary contribution towards the implementation of crypto services in the Ecosystem. These Services, the ITS and the usage of SVDs are described in the Whitepaper (as stated on the Website). For the redemption of SVDs for Services as well as for the usage of these Services the Token Usage Terms & Conditions apply (as stated on the Website and after availability of the Services in the relevant locations in the Ecosystem). The Whitepaper and the latter are herein jointly referred to as the " Accompanying Documents".
The SVD does not grant equity stake nor profit sharing. It does not represent an ownership right or direct claim in the savedroid Ecosystem, revenues, profits or intellectual property, either present or future. Despite savedroid team's best efforts and diligence to bring this project forward, all Participants should be aware that their contributions are not refundable and accept the inherent risk (as outlined below) of project failure at any stage of development. This implicit risk is associated with any and all uncertainty of backing technologically-focused entrepreneurial projects, and can be affected by either internal or external factors that are out of the control scope of savedroid. Additionally, Participants may be subject to any applicable compliance regulations (including KYC, AML and others where applicable).
The SVD can be used in the Ecosystem with a corresponding utility value and will not provide any redemption rights. We believe that SVDs do not qualify as a security or any other form of capital investment product and do not provide a Participant equity share in the legal structure of savedroid.
The SVD can only be used for purchases within the savedroid Ecosystem and will not be accepted by any third party. Hence, SVD do not represent any unit of account or virtual currency.
savedroid offers various methods of payments including fiat and cryptocurrencies. savedroid may require a minimum or maximum amount for individual payment methods to manage payment costs and risks.
If you purchase SVD via Bitcoin or Ethereum, we will use the following exchange rate to derive the value in Euros which then is the basis for the number of SVDs assigned to you. We use the latest volume-weighted average price of Bitcoin or Ethereum respectively from the leading exchanges Kraken and Bitstamp at the point in time your payment transaction is sent to the blockchain. We pull these prices from CryptoCompare and update the price four times a day at around 0.00, 6.00, 12.00 and 18.00 central European time.
If you purchase SVD via any other cryptocurrencies or token except of Bitcoin and Ethereum, we will use the following exchange rate to derive the value in Euros which then is the basis for the number of SVDs assigned to you. We use the exchange rate of the respective cryptocurrency that is shown last to you on our Website before you send your payment transaction to the blockchain.
If you purchase SVD via credit card, savedroid may withhold the SVDs assigned to you for up to 180 days before transferring them to your wallet to protect you and savedroid against credit card fraud. Once tokens are assigned to your wallet they cannot be refunded due to the design of the blockchain, so savedroid would not be able to process any chargebacks. We therefore accept the inconvenience of a late SVD transfer and put the safety of your payments first.
Unless otherwise stated herein, these T&Cs only govern your purchase of SVD from savedroid during the Pre-Sale and Main Sale as defined in the Whitepaper.
Any use of SVD in connection with providing or receiving Services on the Ecosystem may be governed by other applicable terms and conditions and policies.
If you want to buy SVDs with cryptocurrencies, you can send your Ethereum ("ETH") or Bitcoin ("BTC") units from any cryptocurrency wallet (such as but not limited to Coinbase, Poloniex).
During the sale process you will be prompted to insert a new address of an Ethereum wallet that supports the ERC20 token standard in order to receive any Tokens you purchase from us. We reserve the right to prescribe additional guidance regarding specific wallet requirements.
You are responsible for implementing reasonable measures for securing your wallet, vault, or other storage mechanism you use to receive and hold SVD purchased from us, including any requisite private key(s) or other credentials necessary to access such storage mechanism(s). If your private key(s) or other access credentials are lost, you may lose access to your Tokens. We are not responsible for any losses, costs, or expenses relating to lost access credentials.
We may determine, in our sole discretion, that it is necessary to obtain certain information about you in order to comply with applicable laws (e.g. KYC/AML) or regulations in connection with selling SVD to you. You agree to provide us such information promptly upon request and acknowledge that we may refuse to sell SVDs to you until you provide such requested information and we have determined that it is permissible to sell you SVDs under applicable laws or regulations.
All purchases of SVD from us during the Pre-Sale and Main Sale are final, and there are no refunds or cancellations except as set forth herein or as may be required by applicable law or regulation. We reserve the right to refuse or cancel SVD purchase requests at any time in our sole discretion.
savedroid may pause the SVD sale during the Pre-Sale or Main Sale periods in our sole discretion. Reasons for such a pause among others can be: material increase in Bitcoin or Ethereum price volatility (e.g. Bitcoin price crash), news that might impact the price volatility, suspicion of systematic fraud when purchasing SVD, or significant higher load of IT systems than expected.
You have the right to withdraw from this contract within 14 days without giving any reason. The withdrawal period will expire after 14 days from the day of the conclusion of the contract.
To exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform us (savedroid AG Eschersheimer Landstraße 121, 60322 Frankfurt am Main, email: firstname.lastname@example.org) of your decision to withdraw from this contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or e-mail). You may use the attached model withdrawal form, but it is not obligatory.
To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired.
If you withdraw from this contract, we shall reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from your choice of a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this contract. We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement.

Eschersheimer Landstraße 121

I hereby give notice that I withdraw from my contract for the provision of the following service Ordered on
Name of consumer
Address of consumer
Signature of consumer (only if this form is notified on paper) Date
SVDs are being created as ERC20 tokens on the Ethereum protocol. We reserve the right to migrate the ERC20-based SVDs (the "Pre-existing Tokens") to another protocol and to generate replacement Tokens on the new protocol (the "Replacement Tokens") in the future, should we determine, in our sole discretion, that doing so is necessary or useful to the operation of the Ecosystem.
Should we decide to migrate the Tokens, we may no longer provide support for the Preexisting Tokens relating to the Ecosystem, the Services, or any other operational matters, except with respect to the migration process. Although savedroid does not at this time anticipate that it will require any Pre-existing Token holders to convert their Pre-existing Tokens to Replacement Tokens, savedroid anticipates there will be significant incentives for Pre-existing Token owners to do so, since the practical utility of Pre-existing Tokens will likely diminish rapidly once the Replacement Tokens are created and in use by a significant portion of Ecosystem participants. Accordingly, by accepting these T&Cs you acknowledge and agree that in order for you to continue to participate on the Ecosystem or obtain utility from the Tokens you may need to convert the Tokens you purchase during the Token Sale to Replacement Tokens in the future.
Any amounts that you pay for SVDs are exclusive of all applicable taxes. You are responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to your purchase of SVDs, including, for example, sales, use, value added, and similar taxes. It is also your responsibility to withhold, collect, report and remit the correct taxes to the appropriate tax authorities. We are not responsible for withholding, collecting, reporting, or remitting any sales, use, value added, or similar tax arising from your purchase of SVDs. However, in case we are obliged to withhold tax, this will be shown separately in our invoice.
You acknowledge and agree that there are risks associated with purchasing, owning, and using SVD for the provision or receipt of Services on the Ecosystem, as disclosed and explained in Annex 1. BY PURCHASING TOKENS, YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND ASSUME THESE RISKS.

If you purchase Tokens in the ITS, you will be unable to resell the Tokens into the United States unless such resale is registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission or unless an applicable exemption under the Securities Act applies.

Any Dispute arising out of or related to these T&Cs is personal to you and savedroid 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.
Each Party will notify the other Party in writing of any arbitrable 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 savedroid shall be sent by e-mail to savedroid at firstname.lastname@example.org. Notice to you shall be by email to the email address you provide to us. Your notice must include (i) your 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 you are seeking. If you and savedroid cannot agree how to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after the date notice is received by the applicable Party or the Parties do not observe the notification period, then either you or savedroid may, as appropriate and in accordance with this section, commence an arbitration proceeding.
We may modify, change, supplement or update these T&Cs and any Accompanying Documents in our sole discretion at any time without advance notice. We suggest that you visit the Website regularly and subscribe to our newsletter to keep up to date with any changes. Your continued use of the Website and the SVD will confirm your acceptance of these T&Cs and Accompanying Documents as modified, changed, supplemented or updated by us. If you do not agree to such revised T&Cs you must stop using this Website and any information, links or content contained on this Website and cease participating in the ITS.
These Terms will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany ("Germany"), without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of Germany or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. The courts of Frankfurt am Main shall have the whole and exclusive jurisdiction.
If any term, clause or provision of these T&Cs is held unlawful, void or unenforceable, then that term, clause or provision will be severable from these T&Cs and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining part of that term, clause or provision, or any other term, clause or provision of these T&Cs. In the case of a clause not being valid or in the case that a regulation has not been included therein, this gap shall be replaced by a valid clause that the Parties would have been agreed upon if they would have known the gap.
The failure of savedroid to enforce any of the provisions of these T&Cs or any Accompanying Document or any rights with respect thereto shall in no way be considered as a waiver of such provisions or rights or in any way affect the validity of these T&Cs.
A private key, or a combination of private keys, is necessary to control and dispose of SVDs stored in your digital wallet or vault. Accordingly, loss of requisite private key(s) associated with your digital wallet or vault storing SVDs will result in loss of such SVDs. Moreover, any third party that gains access to such private key(s), including by gaining access to login credentials of a hosted wallet service you use, may be able to misappropriate your SVDs. Any errors or malfunctions caused by or otherwise related to the digital wallet or vault you choose to receive and store SVDs, including your own failure to properly maintain or use such digital wallet or vault, may also result in the loss of your SVDs. Additionally, your failure to precisely follow the procedures set forth for buying and receiving SVDs, including, for instance, if you provide an incorrect SVD Receipt Address, or provide an address that is not ERC-20 compatible, may result in the loss of your SVDs.
Because Tokens and the Ecosystem are partially based on the Ethereum protocol, any malfunction, breakdown or abandonment of the Ethereum protocol may have a material adverse effect on the Ecosystem or SVDs. Moreover, advances in cryptography, or technical advances such as the development of quantum computing, could present risks to the SVDs and the Ecosystem, including the utility of the SVDs for obtaining Services, by rendering ineffective the cryptographic consensus mechanism that underpins the Ethereum protocol.
As with other decentralized cryptographic tokens based on the Ethereum protocol, the Tokens are susceptible to attacks by miners in the course of validating Token transactions on the Ethereum blockchain, including, but not limited to, double-spend attacks, majority mining power attacks, and selfish-mining attacks. Any successful attacks present a risk to the Ecosystem and the Tokens, including, but not limited to, accurate execution and recording of transactions involving Tokens.
Hackers or other malicious groups or organizations may attempt to interfere with the Ecosystem or the Tokens in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, malware attacks, denial of service attacks, consensus-based attacks, smurfing and spoofing. Furthermore, because the Ecosystem is based on open-source software, there is a risk that a third party or a member of the savedroid team may intentionally or unintentionally introduce weaknesses into the core infrastructure of the Ecosystem, which could negatively affect the Ecosystem and the Tokens, including the utility of the Tokens for obtaining Services.
savedroid will make every effort to ensure that the cryptocurrency funds received from the ITS will be securely held in the Escrow Wallet as described in the Whitepaper. Notwithstanding such security measures, there is no assurance that there will be no theft of the cryptocurrencies as a result of hacks, sophisticated cyber-attacks, distributed denials of service or errors, vulnerabilities or defects on the Website, in the smart contracts on which the Escrow Wallet and the ITS rely, on the Ethereum or any other blockchain, or otherwise. Such events may include, for example, flaws in programming or source code leading to exploitation or abuse thereof. In such event, even if the ITS is completed, savedroid may not be able to receive the cryptocurrencies raised and may not be able to utilize such funds for the development of the Ecosystem. As such, distributed SVD may hold little worth or value, and this would impact its trading price.
The Tokens are intended to be used solely within the Ecosystem and savedroid will not support or otherwise facilitate any secondary trading or external valuation of Tokens. This restricts the contemplated avenues for using Tokens to the provision or receipt of
Services, and could therefore create illiquidity risk with respect to any Tokens you own. Even if secondary trading of Tokens is facilitated by third-party exchanges, such exchanges may be relatively new and subject to little or no regulatory oversight, making them more susceptible to fraud or manipulation. Furthermore, to the extent that third parties do ascribe an external exchange value to Tokens (e.g., as denominated in a digital or fiat currency), such value may be extremely volatile and diminish to zero.
Future sales or issuance of SVD could materially and adversely affect the market price of SVD. Any future sale or issuance of SVD would increase the supply of SVD in the market and this may result in a downward price pressure on SVD. The sale or distribution of a significant number of SVD outside of the ITS (including but not limited to the sales of SVD undertaken after the ITS, issuance of SVD to persons other than Participants for purposes of community initiatives, business development, education and market expansion and issuance of SVD as a reward to users of the Ecosystem), or the perception that such further sales or issuance may occur, could adversely affect the trading price of the Tokens.
Unlike bank accounts or accounts at some other financial institutions, Tokens are uninsured unless you specifically obtain private insurance to insure them. Thus, in the event of loss or loss of utility value, there is no public insurer, such as the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, or private insurance arranged by savedroid, to offer recourse to you.
The regulatory status of the Tokens and distributed ledger technology is unclear or unsettled in many jurisdictions. It is difficult to predict how or whether regulatory agencies may apply existing regulation with respect to such technology and its applications, including the Ecosystem and the Tokens. It is likewise difficult to predict how or whether legislatures or regulatory agencies may implement changes to law and regulation affecting distributed ledger technology and its applications, including the Ecosystem and the Tokens. Regulatory actions could negatively impact the Ecosystem and the Tokens in various ways, including, for purposes of illustration only, through a determination that the purchase, sale and delivery of the Tokens constitutes unlawful activity or that the Tokens are a regulated instrument that require registration or licensing of those instruments or some or all of the parties involved in the purchase, sale and delivery thereof. savedroid may cease operations in a jurisdiction in the event that regulatory actions, or changes to law or regulation, make it illegal to operate in such jurisdiction, or commercially undesirable to obtain the necessary regulatory approval(s) to operate in such jurisdiction.
The tax characterization of Tokens is uncertain. You must seek your own tax advice in connection with purchasing Tokens, which may result in adverse tax consequences to you, including withholding taxes, income taxes and tax reporting requirements.
It is possible that alternative Ecosystems could be established that utilize similar protocols underlying the Ecosystem and attempt to facilitate services that are materially similar to the Services. The Ecosystem may compete with these alternatives, which could negatively impact the Ecosystem and Tokens, including the utility of the Tokens for obtaining Services.
It is possible that the Ecosystem will not be used by a large number of individuals, companies and other entities or that there will be limited public interest in the creation and development of distributed Ecosystems (such as the Ecosystem) more generally. Such a lack of use or interest could negatively impact the development of the Ecosystem and therefore the potential utility of the Tokens, including the utility of the Tokens for obtaining Services.
The Ecosystem is still under development and may undergo significant changes over time. Although we intend for the Tokens and Ecosystem to function as described in the Whitepaper and intend to take commercially reasonable steps toward those ends, we may have to make changes to any timelines announced in the Whitepaper, on the Website or any other official channel of savedroid, or the specifications of the Tokens or Ecosystem for any number of legitimate reasons. This could create the risk that the Tokens or Ecosystem, as further developed and maintained, may not meet your expectations at the time of purchase.
If the value of ETH fluctuates unfavourably during or after the ITS and despite our effort to hedge the proceeds of the ITS, we may not be able to fund development, or may not be able to develop or maintain the Ecosystem in the manner that is intended. In addition to the usual market forces, there are several potential events which could exacerbate the risk of unfavourable fluctuation in the value of ETH; or significant security incidents or market irregularities at one or more of the major cryptocurrency exchanges.
It is possible that, due to any number of reasons, including, but not limited to, an unfavourable fluctuation in the value of ETH, BTC (or other cryptographic and fiat currencies), decrease in the Tokens' utility (including their utility for obtaining Services), the failure of commercial relationships, intellectual property ownership challenges, insolvency, or the liquidation of savedroid, the Ecosystem may no longer be viable to operate. The Participants may lose parts or all of their SVD purchasing price.
Because Tokens confer no governance rights of any kind with respect to the Ecosystem or savedroid, all decisions involving savedroid's products or services within the Ecosystem or savedroid itself will be made by savedroid at its sole discretion, including, but not limited to, decisions to discontinue its products or services, to create and sell more Tokens for use on the Ecosystem, or to sell or liquidate savedroid. These decisions could adversely affect the Ecosystem and the utility of any Tokens you own, including their utility for obtaining Services.
Especially at the start, savedroid relies on business partners to provide certain Services, especially for Services that require licenses as financial service institutions. While we have legally-binding agreements with business partners and are already in talks with further potential partners, we cannot guarantee that business partners won't terminate their cooperation for whatever reason or that we can close new agreements with potential partners. The provision of certain Services might therefore be interrupted, delayed or cannot be offered at all.
SVD are intended to be used solely on the Ecosystem, and savedroid will not support or otherwise facilitate any secondary trading or external valuation of SVD. This restricts the contemplated avenues for using SVD to obtain Services or access the Ecosystem, and could therefore create illiquidity risk with respect to SVD you hold. Even if secondary trading of SVD is facilitated by third party exchanges, such exchanges may be relatively new and subject to little or no regulatory oversight, making them more susceptible to market-related risks. Furthermore, to the extent that third-parties do ascribe an external exchange value to SVD (e.g., as denominated in a digital or fiat currency), such value may be extremely volatile and diminish to zero.
savedroid's infrastructure is established through servers that it rents at data centre facilities of third parties. If savedroid is unable to renew its data facility lease under commercially reasonable terms or at all, savedroid may be required to transfer its servers to a new data centre facility, and may incur significant costs and possible service interruption in connection with the relocation. These facilities are also vulnerable to damage or interruption from, among others, natural disasters, arson, terrorist attacks, power losses, and telecommunication failures. Additionally, the third-party providers of such facilities may suffer a breach of security as a result of third party action, employee error, malfeasance or otherwise, and a third party may obtain unauthorized access to the data in such servers. As techniques used to obtain unauthorized access to, or to sabotage systems change frequently and generally are not recognized until launched against a target, savedroid and the providers of such facilities may be unable to anticipate these techniques or to implement adequate preventive measures. Any such security breaches or damages which occur which impact upon savedroid's infrastructure network and/or the Ecosystem may adversely impact the price of SVD.
savedroid has been and could continue to be affected by general global economic and market conditions. Challenging economic conditions worldwide have from time to time, contributed, and may continue to contribute, to slowdowns in the information technology industry at large. Weakness in the economy could have a negative effect on savedroid's business, operations and financial condition, including decreases in revenue and operating cash flows. Additionally, in a down-cycle economic environment, savedroid may experience the negative effects of increased competitive pricing pressure and a slowdown in commerce and usage of the Ecosystem. Suppliers on which savedroid relies for servers, bandwidth, location and other services could also be negatively impacted by economic conditions that, in turn, could have a negative impact on savedroid's operations or expenses. There can be no assurance, therefore, that current economic conditions or worsening economic conditions or a prolonged or recurring recession will not have a significant adverse impact on savedroid's business, financial condition and results of operations and hence the Ecosystem, which would correspondingly impact the trading price of SVD.
Cryptographic tokens such as SVDs are a new and untested technology. In addition to the risks included in this Annex. there are other risks associated with your purchase, possession, and use of the Tokens, including unanticipated risks. Such risks may further materialize as unanticipated variations or combinations of the risks discussed in this Annex.
