4.4 Before Transferring Ether to the Smart Contract, the Customer should ensure they have carried out adequate research into the risks and disadvantages of Cryptotokens and has sufficient understanding of the functionality, usage and storage of Cryptotokens, smart contracts and Wallets. By Transferring Ether to the Smart Contract the Customer confirms to VOLT that they have carried out such research, and understand and accept the risks and disadvantages of Cryptotokens.

These Terms do not provide the Customer with title or ownership of any Intellectual Property Rights or other rights other than the rights specified in these Terms.
15.2 If the Customer suggests any new features or functionality for the Software, ICO Platform, Delivery Platform or VOLT Token that VOLT subsequently incorporates, such new features or functionality shall be the sole and exclusive property of VOLT and shall be free from any confidentiality restrictions that might otherwise be imposed upon VOLT pursuant to these Terms.

16.5 The Project, including the development of the Delivery Platform, has been designed to meet a perceived need in the market. It is possible that VOLT, the ICO Platform, Delivery Platform and/or VOLT Tokens will not be used by a large enough number of individuals, businesses or other organisations and that there will be limited public interest in the creation and development of its functionalities to make the development or maintenance of the Project or Delivery Platform commercially viable. It is also possible that a change in law or regulation means that VOLT, the ICO Platform, Delivery Platform and/or VOLT Tokens become unviable or unfeasible to proceed with as anticipated.

16.8 If VOLT Tokens become exchangeable on Cryptotoken Exchanges, in accordance with clause 9.3 no guarantees are given in relation to the capacity or volume of such Cryptotoken Exchanges and the Customer acknowledges that there may be a limited market for VOLT Tokens resulting in the Customer being unable to exchange VOLT Tokens for either other Cryptotokens or fiat currency.
