5.10 If you use the Websites, sign-in or register and/or take over a financial situation or provide support services, and this is neither your commercial nor your self-employed professional activity, the following provisions apply to you as a consumer:

No Consumer Revocation Right

5.10.1 Right of Revocation. By accepting the Services, you acknowledge that the Services are "Digital Service" ("Digitalt indhold" in Danish) and the requesting of the Services is conditioned upon you accepting that you forfeit your right of revocation. However, note that you can always terminate your agreement with the Company, cf. Section 5.9 above.

If we fail to expressly get your consent in regard to forfeiting your right of revocation, cf. section 5.1 just above, the following applies:

You can cancel the Use Agreement within 14 days without notice in writing (e.g. letter, fax, e-mail). Revocation period begins after receipt of this instruction in text form, but not before conclusion of the Use Agreement. The timely dispatch of the revocation declaration satisfies the revocation period. The revocation is to be addressed to the Company's postal or e-mail address as listed in the Imprint (https://crypto-bridge.org/imprint).

5.10.2 Consequences of Revocation: Effective revocation obliges the Parties to return the services received and any benefits derived (e.g. interest) shall be surrendered. If you are unable to return or surrender the received services or benefits (e.g. benefits of use) to us, or if you are unable to return or surrender them in full or in part, or only in a defective state, you are obliged to pay us compensation for the value of such services or benefits. You may be required to fulfil the contractual payment obligations for the period up to the revocation nevertheless. Obligations to reimburse payments must be fulfilled within 30 days. That period begins for you with the dispatch of the declaration of revocation, for us with its receipt.

5.10.3 Additional Notes: Your right of revocation expires prematurely if, at your express request, the agreement is fulfilled completely by both Parties before you have exercised your right of revocation. In any case you all rights of revocation expire 1 year after entering into this agreement.

6. Deposit and Withdrawal Services

6.1 The Company operates a gateway (the 'Gateway') called CryptoBridge that functions as a technical service provider in the exchange of Crypto Assets built according to various technical standards on the blockchain-based decentralized crypto asset exchange BitShares ('BitShares') via IOUs.

6.2 The Gateway is not part of BitShares in any organizational or functional way. The Gateway does not allow for exclusive access to BitShares. Users may access BitShares via other gateways or if they already possess BitShares compatible Crypto Assets by downloading the BitShares wallet.

6.3 The Gateway does not accept Fiat currencies. None of the Services offered through the Websites includes payments in Fiat currencies, by neither the Company nor Users.

6.4 The validity of all Crypto Asset transfers is contingent upon the confirmation process on the blockchain. As such, deposits and withdrawals are pending during the confirmation process and only complete once confirmation on the blockchain is completed.

6.5 Personal wallet address for execution. To use depositing or withdrawal services you guarantee to use and provide the Gateway with the crypto wallet address owned by you exclusively and is under your sole and full control (the 'User Wallet Address').

6.6 The Company reserves the right to at any time and in their sole discretion discontinue the Services for certain listed Crypto Assets (i) in case the Company suspects a security risk, or (ii) Crypto Assets become inactive. The Company will announce the discontinuation of Services on their Twitter account and on the Forum. Following such announcement, depositing such Crypto Assets will seize immediately, but Users will have two weeks to withdraw such Crypto Assets. Requests for withdrawal will not be processed after such two-week period has lapsed. Losses due to disregard of such two-week period will not be reimbursed.

6.7 Deposit

6.7.1 Users need to create an Account with CryptoBridge (https://wallet.crypto-bridge.org/) or BitShares to use the Company's Services. Users are liable for safe-keeping of their passwords. The loss of passwords results in the irretrievable loss of any token or coin (together 'Crypto Assets') in the Account.

6.7.2 Once a use request is submitted to the Gateway, the Company installs a wallet for the new User, which is not subject to fees (the 'CB Wallet'). The Gateway then generates an address (the 'CB Wallet Address') that is transmitted to the User as the address of the wallet into which to deposit their Crypto Assets. Liability for the validity of the CB Wallet Address lies with the Company.

6.7.3 Users should only initiate deposits of Crypto Assets to the CB Wallet Address when such CB Wallet Address active and compatible with the respective Crypto Asset and/or take into account any other notices in the CB Wallet relevant to the deposit. The Company is not liable for the loss of Crypto Assets due to the violation of such obligations or loss of Crypto Assets before arrival in the CB Wallet.

6.7.4 Users may only use the CB Wallet for the Services offered by the Company. The Company reserves the right to charge fees for all other foreign activity conducted via the CB Wallet, including the illegal performance of mining activities (see Section 7 of these Terms of Use).

6.7.5 Except for maintenance work, Force Majeur or other disturbances, the wallet addresses are checked regularly. Once Crypto Assets are received with enough confirmations, the Users will be provided with the respective amount of IOUs, which are transferred into their BitShares Accounts.

6.7.6 The ratio between IOU and Crypto Asset is 1:1. The ratio remains stable and is not subject to exchange rate fluctuations.

6.7.7 The Company reserves the right to refuse to process, cancel or reverse, any transaction in their sole discretion in accordance with applicable law and these Terms of Use, even after Crypto Assets have been deposited with the Gateway.

6.8 Trading

Users who wish to initiate trades by using IOUs or BitShares-compatible crypto assets are to acknowledge that neither the Company (or any person or legal entity affiliated with the Company) nor its Gateway are involved in the trading process, have any control over it and may not influence it in any way. BitShares is solely responsible for the exchange process. The Company is not liable for any losses that Users may suffer due to exchange activity on for example BitShares or any other exchange of Crypto Assets.

6.9 Withdrawal

6.9.1 Any User holding BRIDGE-IOUs, either the depositor or the counterparty of the IOU trade on BitShares, may ask to withdraw Crypto Assets in return for the respective number of BRIDGE-IOUs.

6.9.2 The Gateway first requests the User to provide their personal wallet address to which the Crypto Assets shall be transferred (the 'User Wallet Address').

6.9.3 The User sends the respective BRIDGE-IOUs to a wallet address provided by the Gateway as proof of claim to the Crypto Assets. The Company is not liable for loss of BRIDGE-IOUs before arrival in such wallet. The Gateway burns these BRIDGE-IOUs.

6.9.4 The Gateway transfers the Crypto Assets to the User Wallet Address. Users acknowledge that any delivery of Crypto Assets may not be instantaneous. The Company is not liable for loss of Crypto Assets due to the submission of an invalid User Wallet Address and forked blockchains. There will be no compensation for lost Crypto Assets.

6.9.5 Each BRIDGE-IOU represents a claim to transfer a certain kind of Crypto Asset in the form of an indeterminate obligation.

6.9.6 The Company reserves the right to refuse to process, or to cancel or reverse, any transaction in their sole discretion in accordance with applicable law and these Terms of Use.

7. Fees

7.1 There are no additional fees for Users. Neither deposit nor withdrawal at the Gateway incur any fees. The Company is not responsible for possible fees that incur on the BitShares exchange.

7.2 The Company reserves the right to charge fees for mining fees that incur from illegal use of the CB Wallet for mining activities.

7.3 Information about the respective fees are also publicly available in the CB Wallet.

8. Refund and Cancellation Policy for Deposits and Withdrawals

8.1 The company may cancel the deposit or withdrawal process at any time. Reasons for cancellation include, but are not limited to, technical error, failing to meet volume requirements on https://crypto-bridge.org/coin-add, market abuse, manipulation, failure to pass KYC process where applicable, prohibited activities under Section 11 of these Terms of Use, and failure to pay fees where applicable.

8.2 Users are entitled to refunds. Refunds may not be granted where the User is solely responsible for the cancellation or Crypto Assets are linked to criminal activity. The Company may deduct all fees and charges due from any refund.

8.3 In case the Company transfers to you any excess Crypto Assets that you are not entitled to, you agree to inform us and transfer back that excess amount without undue delay.

User Identity Verification Process

9.1 All Users agree not to disguise or hide in any way their IP location and to disclose their precise and true location to the Company. All Users agree to voluntarily disclose changes in such location.

10. Benefit Programs for BCO-Holders

On the Website https://wallet.crypto-bridge.org/ BCO-Holders may select "Account" from the menu, then click on "BridgeCoin Staking" Users then may specify amount and staking duration and then submit by clicking "Create A New BCO Staking Position". You are aware that staking will lock your BCO until the end of the staking period. You will not be able to withdraw or sell you BCO until the staking period has lapsed and stacking is completed.

10.1.3 The Company distributes staking payouts, which are proportional to the size and length of the staking period according to the following formula (the 'Staking Formula'):

3 Months = 20% Bonus

6 Months = 50% Bonus

12 Months = 100% Bonus

10.1.5 Payouts occur twice per month. Benefits are paid out in Crypto Assets. Payments reflect all Crypto Assets that were traded on BitShares using BRIDGE-IOUs over the past month. The Company, in its sole discretion, may alter the type of Crypto Assets paid out to Users.

10.1.6 The Company reserves the right to adapt the Staking Program due to economic necessity, changes in the BitShares business model or other factors directly affecting the Staking Program's design.
