Please refer to section 7 of the RainCheck White Paper for background information on RainCheck's directors and key managers.

There are risks associated with the use of blockchain technology for the RAIN Token Sale process, and the purchase of RAIN Token generally.
Warning: Do not purchase RAIN Tokens if you are not an expert in dealing with cryptographic tokens and blockchain based software systems.
Purchases of RAIN Token should only be undertaken by individuals or entities that have significant experience with, and understanding of, the usage and intricacies of cryptographic tokens, like Stellar Lumens, and other blockchain based software systems. You should have functional understanding of storage and transmission mechanisms associated with other cryptographic tokens. While RainCheck may be available to assist in the purchase of RAIN Tokens during and after the sale, in no way is RainCheck offering advice and RainCheck will not be responsible for lost Stellar Lumens, RAIN Tokens or other cryptocurrencues resulting from actions taken by, or omitted by you.
Warning: Purchasing RAIN Tokens is risky.
The purchase of RAIN Tokens carries with it a number of risks. You should carefully consider all risks involved, including, but not limited to, those listed below and, to the extent necessary, consult an appropriate lawyer, accountant, or tax professional. If any of the following risks are unacceptable to you, then you should not purchase RAIN Tokens .
To the extent permitted by law, you acknowledge and agree that there are risks associated with purchasing, holding and using RAIN Tokens. You expressly acknowledge and assume all risks and agree not to hold RainCheck or any related party of RainCheck liable for any loss, damage, cost or expense (including or any special, incidental, or consequential damages) arising from, or in any way connected, to the sale of RAIN Tokens, including, but not limited to, any loss associated with the risks set out below. The order of the risks set out below is not intended to have any bearing on the likelihood of such risk arising, or importance of any such risk to any particular person.
Cryptographic tokens that possess value in public markets, such as Stellar and Bitcoin, have demonstrated extreme fluctuations in price over short periods of time on a regular basis. You should be prepared to expect similar fluctuations, both down and up, in the price of RAIN Tokens denominated in Stellar, Bitcoin or USD, or currencies of other jurisdictions. Such fluctuations are due to market forces and represent changes in the balance of supply and demand. As mentioned, exchanges are independent of and not operated by RainCheck, therefore use of exchanges is at your own risk and RainCheck cannot and does not guarantee market liquidity for:
(a) RAIN Tokens on the RainCheck Platform; and
(b) the exchange of RAIN Tokens for any other cryptocurrency,
and therefore there may be periods of time in which RAIN Tokens are difficult to buy or sell.
Additionally, due to different regulatory requirements in different jurisdictions and the inability of citizens of certain countries to open accounts at cryptocurrency exchanges located anywhere in the world, the liquidity of RAIN Tokens may be markedly different in different countries and this would likely be reflected in significant price discrepancies. By purchasing RAIN Tokens, you expressly acknowledge and represent that you fully understand that RAIN Tokens may experience volatility in pricing and will not seek to hold any of RainCheck, its directors, officers, agents and advisors liable for any losses or any special, incidental, or consequential damages arising from, or in any way connected to, the sale of RAIN Tokens.
It is possible that a competing cryptographic token other than RAIN Token could have features that make it more desirable to a material portion of the cryptographic token user base, which could have a negative impact on the use of RAIN Tokens generally.
There are many factors affecting the further development of the cryptographic token industry, as discussed throughout this section. These risks can include, but is not limited to, continued worldwide growth in the adoption and use of RAIN Tokens and other tokens; changes in consumer demographics, public tastes and preferences and the regulatory environment relating to the RainCheck Platform , RAIN Tokens and other tokens.
You recognise that the RainCheck Platform and the integration of RAIN Tokens into the RainCheck Platform is currently under development and may undergo significant changes before release and over time, including a change in direction at RainCheck's discretion. Although RainCheck intends for RAIN Tokens and the RainCheck Platform to function as set forth in the RainCheck White Paper, and intends to take commercially reasonable steps toward those objectives, RainCheck may have to make changes to the functions of RAIN Tokens or the RainCheck Platform for any number of legitimate reasons including, but not limited to, a change in the design, implementation plans and execution of the implementation of the RainCheck Platform in order to meet the needs of the market. This could create the risk that the RainCheck Platform or RAIN Tokens, as further developed and maintained, may not meet your expectations at the time of purchase of the RAIN Tokens.
Furthermore, despite RainCheck's efforts to develop and maintain the RainCheck Platform it is still possible that the RainCheck Platform will experience malfunctions or otherwise fail to be adequately developed or maintained, which may negatively impact the RainCheck Platform and RAIN Tokens.
You understand that while RainCheck will make reasonable efforts to integrate the RAIN Token in the RainCheck Platform , however due to circumstancesbeyond RainCheck's control it is possible that a limited release occurs or, in the worst case, a functioning operational RainCheck Platform with RAIN Tokens integrated may not be released at all.
RAIN Tokens may be stored in a Stellar compliant wallet, which can only be accessed with a password selected by you. The wallet will hold a private key, or a combination of private keys, required to control and dispose of the RAIN Tokens stored in your digital wallet. Any loss of requisite private key(s) associated with your digital wallet storing RAIN Tokens, will result in loss of such RAIN Tokens. If you do not maintain an accurate record of your private key or password used to access your private key, this may lead to the loss of your RAIN Tokens. You must safely store your password in one or more backup locations that are well separated from the primary location. If you do not have such experience or expertise, then you should not participate or purchase RAIN Tokens.
Any third party that gains access to your private key may be able to gain access to your RAIN Tokens. You must take care not to respond to any enquiry regarding your purchase of RAIN Tokens, including but not limited to, email requests purportedly coming from the RainCheck Website, Stellar Native Exhange, or a similar-looking domain.
The loss, destruction, loss of access or data loss relating to a private key used to access the RAIN Token, may be irreversible. RainCheck disclaims all responsibility for loss, destruction, loss of access or data loss relating to a private key or its related RAIN Token.
As RAIN Token is based on the Stellar network protocol any malfunction, unexpected functioning, breakdown or abandonment of the Stellar network may have a material adverse effect on RAIN Token or the RainCheck Platform, including, but not limited to, impacting your ability to transfer, use or securely hold RAIN Tokens.
Advances in cryptography, or technical advances such as the development of quantum computing, could present risks to RAIN Token and the RainCheck Ecosystem by rendering ineffective the cryptographic consensus mechanism, that underpins the Stellar network.
As with other decentralized cryptographic tokens RAIN Tokens and their integration with the RainCheck Platform are susceptible to many known and still unknown risks. Any successful attacks present a risk to the RainCheck Platform and RAIN Tokens, including, but not limited to, accurate execution, recording of transactions involving RAIN Tokens and expected proper payment operations.
It is also possible that a "hard fork" occurs in the Stellar network, where the underlying blockchain splits. This may result in risks to transactions and changes in the RainCheck Ecosystems which occur around the time of the hard fork.
Hackers, individuals, other malicious groups or organizations may attempt to interfere with the RainCheck Platform or RAIN Tokens in a variety of ways
Hackers, individuals, other groups or organizations may attempt to steal Stellar Lumens from the RAIN Token Sale, thus potentially impacting the ability of RainCheck to promote the RainCheck Ecosystem.Advances in code cracking, or technical advances such as the development of quantum computers, could present risks to cryptographic tokens which could result in the theft or loss of RAIN Tokens. To the extent possible, RainCheck intends to update the protocol underlying the RainCheck Platform to account for any advances in cryptography and to incorporate additional security measures, but it cannot predict the future of cryptography or the success of any future security updates.
The RAIN Tokens are intended to be used solely within the RainCheck Platform as set out in the RainCheck White Paper. As RainCheck is using the Stellar Network RainCheck cannot control the actions of purchasers of RAIN Token. Even if secondary trading of RAIN 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 RAIN Tokens (e.g. as denominated in a cryptocurrency or fiat currency), such value may be extremely volatile and diminish to zero. If you chose to use RAIN Tokens on exchanges it is at your own risk. Exchanges are independent of and not operated by RainCheck.
Cryptocurrency exchanges on which RAIN Tokens may trade may be relatively new and largely unregulated and may therefore be more exposed to fraud and failure than established regulated exchanges. A lack of stability in the cryptocurrency exchanges and the closure or temporary shutdown of cryptocurrency exchanges due to fraud, business failure, hackers or malware, or government-mandated regulation may reduce confidence in the RainCheck Platform and RAIN Tokens generally.
Unlike cash reserves held in bank accounts or accounts at some other financial institutions, RAIN Tokens are uninsured unless you specifically obtain private insurance to insure those held by you. In the event of loss or loss of utility value, there is no public insurer or private insurance arranged by RainCheck to offer recourse to you.
RAIN Token transactions are irrevocable. If RAIN Tokens are stolen or incorrectly transferred, such transfer may be irreversible. RainCheck will not provide compensation for any such transfer or theft.
The regulatory status of the cryptographic tokens, blockchain 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 RainCheck Platform and RAIN Tokens. It is likewise difficult to predict how or whether legislatures or regulatory agencies may implement changes to law and regulation affecting blockchain and distributed ledger technology and its applications, including the RainCheck Platform and RAIN Tokens. Regulatory actions could negatively impact the RainCheck Platform and RAIN Tokens in various ways, including, for purposes of illustration only, through a determination that RAIN Tokens are a regulated financial product or instrument that attracts registration or licensing requirements.
RainCheck 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 RainCheck Platform and RainCheck could be impacted by one or more regulatory enquiries or regulatory action, which could impede or limit the ability of RainCheck to continue to develop the RainCheck Platform.
Cryptographic tokens such as RAIN Tokens, which are relatively new, are subject to supply and demand forces based upon the desirability of an alternative, decentralised means of transacting, and it is unclear how such supply and demand will be impacted by geopolitical events. Large-scale sales of RAIN Tokens would result in a reduction in the liquidity of such tokens.
The tax characterization of RAIN Tokens is uncertain in many jurisdictions. You must seek your own tax advice in connection with purchasing RAIN Tokens, which may result in adverse tax consequences to you, including but not limited to withholding taxes, income taxes and tax reporting requirements. You bear the sole responsibility for any taxation requirements, in purchasing, using and holding RAIN Tokens.
It is possible that alternative platforms could be established that utilize the same open source code and protocol underlying the RainCheck Platform and attempt to facilitate services that are materially similar to those intended to be delivered through the RainCheck Platform. The RainCheck Platform may be in competition with these alternative platforms, which could negatively impact the RainCheck Platform and RAIN Tokens.
It is possible that the RAIN Tokens and/or RainCheck Platform will not be used by a large number of external businesses, individuals, and other organisations and that there will be limited public interest in the use of RAIN Tokens for customer loyalty and use within the RainCheck Platform. Such a lack of interest could impact the development of the RainCheck Platform. RainCheck cannot predict the success of its own marketing efforts or the efforts of other third parties.
RainCheck intends to use the proceeds from selling RAIN Tokens to fund the maintenance and development of the RainCheck Platform and RainCheckEcosystem. The proceeds of the RAIN Token Sale will be denominated in Stellar Lumens, and can be converted into other cryptographic and fiat currencies. If the value of Stellar Lumens fluctuates unfavourably during or after the RAIN Token Sale, RainCheck may not be able to fund development, or may not be able to develop or maintain the RainCheck Ecosystem in the manner that it intended.
It is possible, due to any number of reasons including, but not limited to, an unfavourable fluctuation in the value of Stellar Lumens (or other cryptographic and fiat currencies), decrease in the RainCheck Ecosystem's utility, the failure of commercial relationships, or intellectual property ownership challenges, that the RainCheck Ecosystem may no longer be viable to operate and RainCheck may dissolve or be wound up or face an uncertain or changing regulatory regime.
As ownership of a RAIN Token confers no governance rights of any kind with respect to the RAIN Token will be made by RainCheck at its sole discretion, including, but not limited to, decisions to discontinue the RainCheck Platform, to create and sell more RAIN Tokens for use in the RainCheck Platform, or to sell or liquidate RainCheck. These decisions could adversely affect the RainCheck Platform and any RAIN Tokens you hold.
Intellectual property rights claims may adversely affect the operation of the RainCheck Platform or RAIN Tokens. Third parties may assert intellectual property ownership claims relating to the holding and transfer of cryptographic tokens and their source code. Regardless of the merit of any intellectual property claim or other legal action, any threatened action that reduces confidence in the RainCheck Platform's long-term viability or the ability of end-users to hold and transfer RAIN Tokens, may adversely affect the utility of RAIN Tokens. Additionally, a meritorious intellectual property claim could prevent you from holding or transferring your RAIN Tokens.
Cryptographic tokens such as the RAIN Token are a new and relatively untested technology. In addition to the risks noted above, there are other risks associated with your purchase, holding and use of RAIN Tokens that RainCheck cannot anticipate. Such risks may further materialise as unanticipated variations or combinations of the risks set out above.
