2. Overview of StreamPayCoins Sale
StreamPayCoins are required for proper operation and comprehensive utilization of StreamPay (as defined in the white paper (the “White Paper”) provided at https://StreamPay.io (the “Website”) as of the date the Purchaser acquires StreamPayCoins). After the StreamPayCoins sale, each StreamPayCoins are backed by the purchase of the underlying software license, as described in the White Paper. To the extent that they do not contradict these Terms, the rights connected to StreamPayCoins are subject to the limitations set out in the White Paper, but this should in no case create obligations for the Company in addition to the conditions contained in these Terms. The Company reserves the right to circumvent the algorithm used to select the underlying assets if it believes, in its sole discretion, that such selected underlying assets could adversely affect the Company or StreamPayCoins from a regulatory or legal perspective. The Company shall have the right to sell any such underlying assets (if already part of StreamPayCoins’s portfolio) and block their acquisition.
The maximum total amount of StreamPayCoins to be issued is 50,000,000 (roughly equivalent to USD50,000,000). StreamPayCoins are generated as Purchasers buy them and the total supply of StreamPayCoins is fixed after the end of the StreamPayCoins sale. No more StreamPayCoins will be issued after the end of the StreamPayCoins sale, as described in the preceding paragraph. Ownership of StreamPayCoins during the StreamPayCoins Token Sale carries no express or implied rights. Purchases of StreamPayCoins are nonrefundable.
The anticipated distribution of StreamPayCoins tokens is as follows:
The 12 percent of tokens allocated for reserved funds will be used for continued platform improvements. The 4 percent of tokens allocated for marketing and loyalty purposes will be gradually released to enlarge the user base and fulfill the Monthly Loyalty Program goals. The final 14 percent of tokens will be distributed among the founders, management, advisors, software development team, and participants in the bounty campaign. StreamPay is focused on delivering products that support mass-scale adoption as quickly and efficiently as possible and thereby simultaneously deliver value to STPY holders.

The Company will provide you with an official and regular audit conducted on the existence of the digital assets backing each StreamPayCoin. Through this audit, you can track and confirm that the digital assets backing your StreamPayCoins have been received and acquired. Access to the audit results does not constitute a StreamPayCoins purchase receipt or indicate in any way that the Party possessing such access has rights to or ownership of the purchased StreamPayCoins.
Prior to a Purchaser selling StreamPayCoins after the StreamPayCoins token sale completion, such Purchaser shall ensure that the buyer of any such StreamPayCoins undertakes to comply with all the provisions of these Terms as if such person were a Purchaser in the StreamPayCoins token sale.
6. The Company Will Not Purchase StreamPayCoins During the StreamPayCoins Sale

7. All StreamPayCoin Purchases Are Final
ALL STREAMPAYCOIN PURCHASE TRANSACTIONS ARE COMPLETE. PURCHASES OF STREAMPAYCOINS ARE NONREFUNDABLE. BY PURCHASING STREAMPAYCOINS, THE PURCHASER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT NEITHER THE COMPANY NOR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES, DIRECTORS, STREAMPAY TEAM OR SHAREHOLDERS ARE REQUIRED TO PROVIDE A REFUND FOR ANY REASON.
IF THE COMPANY BELIEVES, IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION, THAT ANY INDIVIDUALS OR ENTITIES OWNING STREAMPAYCOINS CREATE MATERIAL REGULATORY OR OTHER LEGAL RISKS OR ADVERSE EFFECTS FOR THE COMPANY AND/OR STREAMPAYCOINS, THE COMPANY RESERVES THE RIGHT TO: (A) BUY ALL STREAMPAYCOINS FROM SUCH STREAMPAYCOINS OWNERS AT THE THEN-EXISTING MARKET PRICE AND/OR (B) SELL ALL CRYPTOCURRENCY ASSETS OF THE COMPANY.
8. Taxation of StreamPayCoins and Taxation Related to the ICO
The Purchaser bears the sole responsibility to determine whether the StreamPayCoins purchase or the potential appreciation or depreciation in StreamPayCoins’ value over time has tax implications for the Purchaser in the Purchaser’s home jurisdiction.

10. Force Majeure

delays in materials delivery,
acts of civil or military authorities,
acts by common carriers,
emergency conditions (including weather conditions),
security issues arising from the technology used,
or any similar unforeseen event that renders performance commercially implausible.
If an event of force majeure occurs, the Party injured by the company’s inability to perform may elect to suspend the Terms, in whole or part, for the duration of the force majeure circumstances. The Company experiencing the force majeure circumstances shall cooperate with and assist the injured Purchaser in all reasonable ways to minimize the impact of force majeure on the Purchaser.
11. Disclaimer of Warranties
THE PURCHASER EXPRESSLY AGREES THAT THE PURCHASER IS PURCHASING STREAMPAYCOINS AT THE PURCHASER’S SOLE RISK AND THAT STREAMPAYCOINS IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OF TITLE OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, MERCHANTABILITY, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE (EXCEPT ONLY TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW WITH ANY LEGALLY REQUIRED WARRANTY PERIOD TO THE SHORTER OF THIRTY DAYS FROM FIRST USE OR THE MINIMUM PERIOD REQUIRED UNDER ESTONIA LAW). WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, NONE OF THE STREAMPAY TEAM WARRANTS THAT THE PROCESS FOR PURCHASING STREAMPAYCOINS WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE.
12. Limitations Waiver of Liability
THE PURCHASER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY ANY APPLICABLE LAW, THE DISCLAIMERS OF LIABILITY CONTAINED HEREIN APPLY TO ANY AND ALL DAMAGES OR INJURY WHATSOEVER CAUSED BY OR RELATED TO (i) USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, STREAMPAYCOINS OR (ii) THE STREAMPAY TEAM UNDER ANY CAUSE OR ACTION WHATSOEVER OF ANY KIND IN ANY JURISDICTION, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ACTIONS FOR BREACH OF WARRANTY, BREACH OF CONTRACT, OR TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) AND THAT NONE OF THE STREAMPAY TEAM SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, OR DATA, IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, OR PURCHASE OF, OR INABILITY TO PURCHASE STREAMPAYCOINS, OR ARISING OUT OF ANY INTERACTION WITH THE SMART CONTRACT IMPLEMENTED IN RELATION TO STREAMPAYCOINS.

TO THE EXTENT PERMISSIBLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAWS, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL ANY OF THE STREAMPAY TEAM BE LIABLE TO ANY PURCHASER FOR MORE THAN THE AMOUNT THE PURCHASER HAS PAID TO THE COMPANY FOR THE STREAMPAYCOINS PURCHASE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF DAMAGES. THEREFORE, SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION AND ELSEWHERE IN THE TERMS MAY NOT APPLY TO A PURCHASER. IN PARTICULAR, NOTHING IN THESE TERMS SHALL AFFECT THE STATUTORY RIGHTS OF ANY PURCHASER OR EXCLUDE INJURY ARISING FROM ANY WILLFUL MISCONDUCT OR FRAUD OF THE STREAMPAY TEAM.
13. Complete Agreement
These Terms set forth the entire understanding between the Purchaser and the Company with respect to the purchase and sale of StreamPayCoins. For facts relating to the sale and purchase, the Purchaser agrees to rely only on the Terms in determining purchase decisions and understands that the Terms govern the sale of StreamPayCoins and supersede any public statements about the StreamPayCoins token sale made by third parties, the StreamPay Team, individuals associated with any of the StreamPay Team, in the past, present, and during the StreamPayCoins token sale.
The Purchaser and the Company agree that if any portion of these Terms is found illegal or unenforceable, in whole or in part, such provision shall, according to the jurisdiction, be ineffective solely to the extent of such determination of invalidity or unenforceability without affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other manner or jurisdiction and without affecting the remaining provisions of the Terms, which shall continue to be in full force and effect.
15. No Waiver
The failure of the Company to require or enforce strict performance by the Purchaser of any provision of these Terms or the Company’s failure to exercise any right under these Terms shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of the Company’s right to assert or rely on any such a provision or right in that or any other instance. The express waiver by the Company of any provision, condition, or requirement of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of any future obligation to comply with such provision, condition, or requirement. Except as expressly and specifically set forth in these Terms, no representations, statements, consents, waivers, or other acts or omissions by the StreamPay Team shall be deemed a modification of these Terms nor be legally binding.
16. Updates to the Terms
The Company reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of the Terms at any time during the sale by posting the amended Terms on the Website www.streampay.io. Any Purchaser will be deemed to have accepted such changes by purchasing StreamPayCoins. The Terms may not be otherwise amended except by express consent of both the Purchaser and the Company.
17. Cooperation with Legal Authorities
The Company will cooperate with all law enforcement enquiries, subpoenas, or requests provided they are fully supported and documented by the law in the relevant jurisdictions.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the StreamPay Team from and against all claims, demands, actions, damages, losses, costs, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) that arise from or relate to: (i) your purchase or use of StreamPayCoins; (ii) your responsibilities or obligations under these Terms; (iii) your violation of these Terms; or (iv) your violation of any rights of any other person or entity.
The Company reserves the right to exercise sole control over the defense, at your expense, of any claim subject to indemnification under this Section 18. This indemnity is in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other indemnities set forth in a written agreement between you and the Company.
The Purchaser is responsible for implementing reasonable measures for securing the wallet, vault, or other storage mechanism used to receive and hold StreamPayCoins purchased from the Company 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 StreamPayCoins. The Company is not responsible for any losses, costs, or expenses relating to lost access to credentials.
Currently, only English versions of any StreamPay’s communications are considered official. The English version shall prevail in case of translation differences.
21. Governing Law
The Terms, the arbitration clause contained in them, and all noncontractual obligations arising in any way whatsoever out of or in connection with these Terms are governed by, construed, and take effect in accordance with English law.
Any dispute or difference arising out of or in connection with these Terms or the legal relationships established by these Terms, including any question regarding its existence, validity, or termination (“Dispute”), shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration under the LCIA Rules that will be deemed to be incorporated by reference into this clause, save for any waiver of any rights the Parties would otherwise have to any form of appeal or recourse to a court of law or other judicial authority, whose rights are expressly reserved. The number of arbitrators shall be three. The seat of the arbitration shall be London. The language of the arbitration shall be English.
A Dispute arising out of or related to these Terms is personal to you 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 arbitration, or on behalf of any other individual or group of individuals.
By purchasing, owning, and using StreamPayCoins, you expressly acknowledge and assume the following risks:
1. Risk of Losing Access to StreamPayCoins Due to Loss of Private Key(s), Custodial Error, or Purchaser Error
A private key, or a combination of private keys, is necessary to control and dispose of StreamPayCoins stored in your digital wallet or vault. Accordingly, loss of requisite private key(s) associated with your digital wallet or vault storing StreamPayCoins will result in loss of such StreamPayCoins. 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 StreamPayCoins. Any errors or malfunctions caused by or otherwise related to the digital wallet or vault in which you choose to receive and store StreamPayCoins, including your own failure to properly maintain or use such a digital wallet or vault, may also result in the loss of your StreamPayCoins. Additionally, your failure to precisely follow the procedures set forth for buying and receiving StreamPayCoins, including, for instance, if you provide the wrong address for the StreamPayCoins you receive or provide an address that is not ERC-20 compatible, may result in the loss of your StreamPayCoins.
2. Risks Associated with the Ethereum Protocol
Because StreamPayCoins and the StreamPay platform are based on the Ethereum protocol, any malfunction, breakdown, or abandonment of the Ethereum protocol may have an adverse material effect on the platform or StreamPayCoins. Moreover, advances in cryptography, or technical advances such as the development of quantum computing, could present risks to StreamPayCoins and the platform, including the utility of the StreamPayCoins for obtaining services, by rendering ineffective the cryptographic consensus mechanism that underpins the Ethereum protocol.
3. Risk of Mining Attacks
As with other decentralized cryptographic tokens based on the Ethereum protocol, StreamPayCoins are susceptible to attacks by miners during validation of StreamPayCoins 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 platform and StreamPayCoins including, but not limited to, accurate execution and recording of transactions involving StreamPayCoins.
4. Risk of Hacking and Security Weaknesses
Hackers or other malicious groups or organizations may attempt to interfere with the platform or StreamPayCoins in a variety of ways including, but not limited to, malware attacks, denial of service attacks, consensus-based attacks, Sybil attacks, smurfing, and spoofing. Furthermore, because the platform is based on open-source software, there is a risk that a third party or a member of the Company team may intentionally or unintentionally introduce weaknesses into the core infrastructure of the platform, which could negatively affect the platform and StreamPayCoins including the utility of StreamPayCoins for obtaining services.
5. Risks Associated with Markets for StreamPayCoins
If secondary trading of StreamPayCoins 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 ascribe an external exchange value to StreamPayCoins (e.g., as denominated in a digital or fiat currency), such value may be extremely volatile.
6. Risk of Uninsured Losses
Unlike bank accounts or accounts at some other financial institutions, StreamPayCoins are uninsured unless the Purchaser specifically obtains private insurance to insure them. Thus, in the event of loss or loss of utility value, there is no public insurer or private insurance arranged by the Company to offer you recourse.
7. Risks Associated with Uncertain Regulations and Enforcement Actions
The regulatory status of StreamPayCoins 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 StreamPay platform and StreamPayCoins. It is likewise difficult to predict how or whether legislatures or regulatory agencies may implement changes to laws and regulations affecting distributed ledger technology and its applications including the platform and StreamPayCoins. Regulatory actions could negatively impact the platform and StreamPayCoins in various ways including, for purposes of illustration only, through a determination that the purchase, sale, and delivery of StreamPayCoins constitutes unlawful activity or that StreamPayCoins are a regulated instrument that require registration or licensing of those instruments or some or all the Parties involved in the purchase, sale, and delivery thereof. The Company may cease operations in a jurisdiction if regulatory actions, or changes to laws or regulations, make it illegal to operate in such a jurisdiction or commercially undesirable to obtain the necessary regulatory approval(s) to operate in that jurisdiction.
8. Risks Arising from Taxation
The tax characterization of StreamPayCoins is uncertain. You must seek your own tax advice in connection with purchasing StreamPayCoins, which may result in adverse tax consequences to you including withholding taxes, income taxes, and tax reporting requirements.
9. Risk of Competing Platforms
It is possible that alternative platforms could be established that utilize the same open-source code and protocol underlying the platform and attempt to facilitate services that are materially like StreamPay services.
10. Risks Arising from Lack of Governance Rights
Because StreamPayCoins confer no governance rights of any kind with respect to the StreamPay platform or the Company, all decisions involving the Company’s products or services within the platform or the Company itself will be made by the Company at its sole discretion. These decisions could adversely affect the platform and the utility of any StreamPayCoins you own including their utility for obtaining services.
11. Unanticipated Risks
Cryptographic tokens, such as StreamPayCoins, are a new and untested technology. In addition to the risks included in this Appendix A of these Terms, there are other risks associated with your purchase, possession, and use of StreamPayCoins including unanticipated risks. Such risks may further materialize as unanticipated variations or combinations of the risks discussed in this Appendix A of these Terms.

References to Token Sale Terms and the Articles are to those documents as they may be amended from time to time.
White Paper and/or Terms and Conditions
I have received and reviewed: (i) the Token Sale Terms and have taken appropriate legal and tax advice with respect to the same.
I understand that StreamPayCoins do not represent nor do they entitle the holder, in any way whatever, to a:
cash value insurance contract;
annuity contract; or
equity and/or debt interest in StreamPay;
as such terms are defined in the Tax Information Authority (International Tax Compliance) (Common Reporting Standard) Regulations, 2015, BTLG1-8265751-5.
Terms of Tokens
StreamPayCoins are held subject to the terms and conditions of the Token Sale Terms and this Application (“this Application”).
No certificate will be issued in relation to my StreamPayCoins and my personal StreamPayCoins holding will not be reflected, recognized, or recorded in any account or ledger maintained by StreamPay.
Acquisition and Reversion
I understand that acquisitions and reversions will be processed by StreamPay as per its Token Sale Terms. For the purposes of this Application, a “Reversion” means a transaction directly between StreamPay and you whereby StreamPayCoins registered on your public key revert to a public key owned or controlled by StreamPay or its affiliates in accordance with the Terms and Conditions.
I understand that, prior to any purchase of StreamPayCoins, I must pay cash or digital currency (Contributed Amount) to StreamPay in accordance with the Token Sale Terms to the cryptocurrency address indicated by StreamPay.
On acceptance of my request to buy StreamPayCoins, the Contributed Amount will be converted to StreamPayCoins in accordance with the Token Sale Terms.
Any Reversion proceeds realized and due to me following a Reversion of StreamPayCoins held by me at the point of Reversion (Reversion Proceeds) in accordance with Token Sale Terms shall be paid to me as soon as practicable in the manner set forth in the Token Sale Terms. Contributed Amount or Reversion proceeds shall be transferred and/or reflected on the same digital currency address from which the Contributed Amount was originally remitted unless such account or digital currency address has been changed and notified to StreamPay and all relevant anti-money-laundering and other verification procedures have been complied with prior to withdrawal. No Contributed Amount or Reversion proceeds shall be paid to any third -party account in respect to StreamPayCoins held by me and reverted.
I acknowledge and understand that, for so long as any Reversion proceeds are held as assets of StreamPay, I shall accept the risk that a creditor of StreamPay may seek to and be successful in securing discharge of a liability of StreamPay out of StreamPay assets, thereby materially adversely affecting the value of my Contributed Amount and/or Reversion proceeds and potentially reducing one or both to zero. Furthermore, I acknowledge that any interest accruing with respect to such Contributed Amount and/or Reversion proceeds held in this manner shall be for the benefit of StreamPay only.
StreamPay (and/or its delegate) may request such evidence as is necessary to verify the identity and source of funds of a prospective token purchaser and to confirm the AML status of any redeeming StreamPayCoins holder. StreamPay shall not accept or repay any Contributed Amount and/or Application for StreamPayCoins and shall not pay any Reversion proceeds until all information required for verification purposes has been provided.
If, as a result of any information or other matter that comes to his or her attention, any person resident in Estonia who knows, suspects, or has reasonable grounds for knowing or suspecting that another person is engaged in criminal conduct or is involved with terrorism or terrorist property and the information for that knowledge or suspicion came to their attention in the course of business in the regulated sector, or other trade, profession, business, or employment, the person will be required to report such knowledge or suspicion to: (i) the Financial Reporting Authority of Estonia, pursuant to the Proceeds of Crime Law (Revised) of Estonia if the disclosure relates to criminal conduct or money laundering; or (ii) a police constable not below the rank of inspector, or the Financial Reporting Authority, pursuant to the Terrorism Law (Revised) of Estonia, if the disclosure relates to involvement with terrorism or terrorist financing and property. Such a report shall not be treated as a breach of confidence or of any restriction on the disclosure of information imposed by any enactment or otherwise.
StreamPay prohibits acceptance of funds by any persons or entities that are acting, directly or indirectly: (i) in contravention of any U.S. or international laws and regulations, including anti-money-laundering regulations or conventions; (ii) on behalf of terrorists or terrorist organizations, including those persons or entities that are included on the List of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons maintained by the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control  (“OFAC”), as such list may be amended from time to time; (iii) for a senior foreign political  figure, any member of a senior foreign political figure’s immediate family or any close associate of a senior foreign political, unless StreamPay, after being specifically notified in writing that the Purchaser is such a person, conducts further due diligence and determines that such acquisition shall be permitted; or (iv) for a foreign shell bank  (such persons or entities in (i)–(iv) are collectively referred to as “Prohibited Persons”).
Tax Information Exchange Obligations
I acknowledge that StreamPay may be subject to certain obligations (the Tax Information Exchange Obligations) to gather and disclose to the competent authorities information relating to purchasers of StreamPayCoins under: (i) the United States Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act provisions enacted under the United States Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment Act and any guidance or regulations relating thereto (FATCA); (ii) any other legislation, regulations, or guidance enacted in any jurisdiction that seeks to implement similar tax reporting or tax information exchange, reporting, and/or withholding tax regimes (including the OECD Common Reporting Standard on the automatic exchange of financial account information); (iii) any intergovernmental Application between Estonia (or any Estonia government body) and the US, the UK, or any other jurisdiction (including any government bodies in any other such jurisdiction) entered into to comply with, facilitate, supplement, or implement the legislation, regulations, or guidance described in (i) and (ii), including the OECD Multilateral Competent Authority Application; and (iv) any legislation, regulations, or guidance in Estonia that give effect to the above.
I shall execute properly and provide to StreamPay in a timely manner any documentation or other information that StreamPay or its agents may request in writing from time to time in connection with the Tax Information Obligations. I waive any provision under the laws and regulations of any jurisdiction that would, absent a waiver, prevent or inhibit StreamPay’s compliance with applicable law as described in this paragraph including, but not limited to, by preventing either (i) the Purchaser from providing any requested information or documentation or (ii) the disclosure by StreamPay and its agents of the provided information or documentation to applicable regulatory authorities.
Without limitation, I shall provide any documentation or other information regarding myself and my beneficial owners requested by StreamPay or its agents in connection with the Tax Information Exchange Obligations.
If I provide information and/or documentation that is in any way misleading, or I fail to provide StreamPay, its agents, or delegates with the information and documentation that has been requested (whether or not such action or inaction leads to compliance failures by StreamPay or a risk of StreamPay or its token holders being subject to withholding tax or other penalties), StreamPay reserves the right:
to take any action and/or pursue all remedies at StreamPay’s disposal including, without limitation, compulsory Reversion of my StreamPayCoins in full or in part; and
to hold back from any Reversion proceeds in respect of the StreamPayCoins so reverted and any liabilities, costs, expenses, or taxes arising (directly or indirectly) from such action or inaction.
Further, I shall have no claim against StreamPay or Smart Contract Supporter, or their agents or delegates, for any form of damages or liability because of actions taken or remedies pursued by or on behalf of StreamPay or Smart Contract Supporter to comply with the Tax Information Exchange Obligations.

StreamPay and Smart Contract Supporter make no warranties in relation to these matters. StreamPay and Smart Contract Supporter reserve the right to intercept, monitor, and retain email messages to and from their systems as permitted by applicable law. If I have any doubts about the authenticity of an electronic communication purportedly sent by StreamPay or Smart Contract Supporter, I am required to contact the purported sender immediately. StreamPay’s acceptance of my StreamPayCoins purchase is not conditioned on my giving consent to electronic delivery of StreamPay-related information. If I do not have reliable access to the internet or email, I shall not acquire StreamPayCoins. I shall not be entitled to receive any information from StreamPay in paper format.
