PAYMENT TERMS

The following payment terms are applicable to those users desiring to access Hydrogen’s Developer Plan ("Dev"). With regard to other Hydrogen Services, Hydrogen accepts, and various users pay, via means other than the payment methods described below. Those users that have established other payment methods with Hydrogen do not necessarily need to comply with the payment terms below.  

Access to certain Hydrogen Services (Hydrogen’s Enterprise Plan, for example) is subject to payments now and/or in the future (the “Paid Hydrogen Services”). If they are applicable to your use of the Hydrogen Services, the Paid Hydrogen Services are deemed part of these Terms of Use. 

Hydrogen may use a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”) to bill its clients for the Paid Hydrogen Services through a payment account linked to the user’s Hydrogen account. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to these Terms of Use. Hydrogen is not responsible for any errors committed by the Payment Processor, and reserves the right to correct any errors or mistakes made by the Payment Processor regardless if Payment Processor has already requested or received payment. By choosing to use the Paid Hydrogen Services, you agree to pay the Payment Processor all charges for the Paid Hydrogen Services at the price(s) then in effect in accordance with the applicable payment terms, and you authorize Hydrogen to charge your payment provider for all such amounts. Hydrogen may accumulate any incurred charges and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each billing cycle applicable to your use of the Paid Hydrogen Services. 

You agree to make payment using the method of payment selected by you. In addition to these Terms of Use and the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor, your payment method may be subject to such agreements as may be in effect between you and the bank, credit union, credit card issuer, financial institution or other provider of your method of payment (the “Payment Provider”).

If we, either directly or through a payment processor, do not receive payment from you, you agree to pay all amounts due on your Hydrogen account upon demand. If the Paid Hydrogen Services include periodic or other recurring fees, you acknowledge and agree that such Paid Hydrogen Services may have an initial and/or recurring payment feature(s) and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation of such Paid Hydrogen Services in accordance with these Terms of Use. Hydrogen shall provide to you upon request, notice of the amount(s) to be charged and the date of the charges before the pre-scheduled date(s) of any such transaction.

You further agree that Hydrogen may charge your Hydrogen account for such recurring charges without further authorization from you until you provide notice to Hydrogen (receipt of which has been acknowledged by Hydrogen) that you have terminated this authorization and/or wish to change your method of payment method. Such notice will not affect charges submitted before Hydrogen could reasonably have acted upon such notice of termination or change in payment method. Your non-termination or continued use of the Paid Hydrogen Services shall serve as confirmation to charge your payment provider for the Paid Hydrogen Services. Notwithstanding anything in these Terms of Use to the contrary, you acknowledge that Hydrogen may submit the charges associated with such Paid Hydrogen Services for payment and you will be responsible for such charges, and that Hydrogen shall have the right to seek payment from you directly.

You acknowledge and agree that you will provide Hydrogen and/or the Payment Processor with current, complete and accurate information for your Hydrogen account, and that you will update such information as required. You further acknowledge and agree that you will promptly notify us, Payment Processor and your Payment Provider if you become aware of any potential breach of security regarding your chosen payment method.

LEGAL CONSIDERATIONS

All API keys, tokens, and other similar Hydrogen-designed software are functionally designed solely for use on Hydrogen’s platform. No keys, tokens, or software, in any form acquired or received by you from Hydrogen are, or will be, a security, security offering, or investment product, as generally  defined and construed by the laws and regulations of the United States. In the event you obtain software from Hydrogen, you will not be able to redeem the received software for cash, cryptocurrency, digital currency, or any other consideration. Hydrogen software does not, and will not, entitle you to any equity, governance, voting or similar right or entitlement in Hydrogen or in any of its affiliated entities. Hydrogen does not recommend you attempt to receive or use Hydrogen software unless you have prior experience with blockchain-based software, distributed ledger technology or cryptographic tokens. ANY TOKENS, API KEYS AND/OR OTHER SOFTWARE IN ANY FORM PROVIDED BY THE HYDROGEN TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION ARE TO BE USED BY DEVELOPERS AND/OR ENTERPRISES SOLELY TOGETHER WITH, OR ON, THE HYDROGEN PLATFORM. ANY SUCH SOFTWARE IN ANY FORM PROVIDED BY THE HYDROGEN TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION TO ANY RECEIVER OF SUCH SOFTWARE IS NOT TO BE SUBLICENSED OR SOLD TO A THIRD PARTY ABSENT A SEPARATE AND DISTINCT NAMED CONTRACTUAL AGREEMENT EXECUTED BY AND BETWEEN YOU AND THE HYDROGEN TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION.

A private key, or a combination of private keys, is necessary to control tokens provided to developers on the Hydrogen platform. Accordingly, loss of requisite private key(s) will result in loss of such tokens. Moreover, any third party that gains access to such private key(s), including by gaining access to login credentials of any third-party our proprietary service you may use, may be able to misappropriate your tokens.  Any errors or malfunctions caused by or otherwise related to the any third-party our proprietary service to use tokens, including your own failure to properly maintain or use such services, may also result in the loss of your tokens.  Additionally, your failure to follow precisely the procedures set forth in the following section AIRDROPS, including, for instance, if you provide the wrong public Ethereum address for receiving your tokens, may result in the loss of your tokens.

Hydrogen reserves the sole right to limit distribution of API keys and/or tokens to individuals from (i) nation states sanctioned by the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Asset Control, including but not limited to the Balkans, Belarus, Burma, Cote D’Ivoire, Cuba, Democratic Republic of Congo, Iran, Iraq, Liberia, North Korea, Sudan, Syria and Zimbabwe; (ii) nation states where concerns exist surrounding said state’s ability to protect the Company’s intellectual property, including China, Russia and Ukraine; or (iii) nation states with exceptionally broad securities laws and regulations, including Canada. Additionally, Hydrogen reserves the sole right to limit distribution of API keys and/or tokens to individuals using (i) masked or duplicate IP addresses; (ii) duplicate or invalid email addresses; (iii) duplicate Github addresses; (iv) duplicate passwords; (v) duplicate or invalid Ethereum addresses; (vi) incorrect or invalid first and last names; (vii) project submissions that don't qualify as technology development; or (viii) GitHub addresses which have been active for an exceedingly short period of time.

AIRDROPS

From time to time, developers on the Hydrogen platform may receive "airdrops." An airdrop is when free tokens are deposited into the Ethereum wallet address you provided when registering for the platform. It is your responsibility to check the accuracy of this address. Hydrogen will not be held liable for any loss or misuse of tokens or incorrect entry of wallet address.

To qualify to receive airdrops you must not violate any legal consideration listed above for any individual to receive API keys and/or tokens, and register on the Hydrogen website, provide your email address, confirm your GitHub developer account (www.github.com), and provide your public Ethereum address.

Airdrop tokens are provided for use within the Hydrogen platform for application developers only. They are not for resale, have no exchange for monetary value on Hydrogen, and have no implied value on a secondary exchange. You participate in Hydrogen airdrop at your own risk, and disclaim Hydrogen of any claims, real or other, from any legal action taken upon you through your use of the Hydrogen platform and issuance of Hydrogen tokens. By agreeing to these Terms, you agree that a Hydrogen airdrop does not represent an offer or solicitation to buy or sell securities, as defined by U.S. securities laws, and tokens are solely meant for development purposes on the Hydrogen platform.

DEVELOPER REFERRAL PROGRAM

The purpose of the Project Hydro Developer Referral Program ("Referral Program") is to grow the Project Hydro community of developers. In recognition of the active status of developers who refer others to the project, the referring developer may receive additional Hydro tokens. The purpose and sole use for these tokens is and shall be for the development of the Hydro Blockchain and associated technology development.

The Company, at its sole discretion and for any reason, reserves the right to reject referrals including but not limited to referrals for developers which are duplicative, or are for existing developers. Company reserves the right to terminate the Referral Program at any time at its sole discretion. Company also reserves the right to terminate anything obtained through the Referral Program at its reasonable discretion.

Developers who desire to participate in the Project Hydro Developer Referral Program (the “Referral Program”) must not violate any legal consideration listed above for any individual to receive API keys and/or tokens and refer at least 3 developers who meet the same criteria.

The purpose of the Referral Program is to encourage members of the Hydro developer community to introduce the platform to their colleagues, friends, business partners and/or other skilled, like minded developers. All participants in the Hydro platform must meet the Eligibility criteria above. In addition, participants should not: (1) use the Referral Program for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by these Terms; (2) sell Hydro tokens you receive for any such referral or (3) use the Referral Program to send altered, deceptive or false source-identifying information or spam, including but not limited to sending out junk emails with the referral link.

RESTRICTIONS

When using the Hydrogen Services, you must comply with all applicable laws, including without limitation, any applicable foreign or domestic regulatory body, national or other securities exchanges, including rules against making false or misleading statements to manipulate the price of a security.

HYDROGEN PLATFORM RISK FACTORS

Hydrogen software products are not securities and are part of the Hydrogen platform. Hydrogen is not responsible for, nor does it pursue, the circulation and trading of Hydrogen software received by its users on any market.

Negative publicity involving Hydrogen, Hydrogen’s business platform, Hydrogen software or any of the key personnel of Hydrogen and/or regulation of distributed ledger technologies or cryptocurrencies may materially and adversely affect the perception or viability of the Hydrogen platform, whether or not so justified.

Distributed ledger technologies, businesses and activities are generally unregulated worldwide, but numerous regulatory authorities across jurisdictions have been outspoken about considering the implementation of regulatory regimes which govern distributed ledger technologies, business and activities. Hydrogen or Hydrogen software may be affected by newly implemented regulations relating to distributed ledger technologies, including having to take measures to comply with such regulations, or having to deal with queries, notices or requests for information, which may require modifications to Hydrogen’s business products and offerings. It is difficult to predict how or whether governments or regulatory authorities may implement any changes to laws and regulations affecting distributed ledger technology and its applications, including Hydrogen software, Hydrogen platform functionality, and/or future product offerings.

API keys, cryptographic tokens and other Hydrogen projects are based on new and dynamic technology. In addition to the risks included in the above discussion of risk factors, there are other unanticipated, unforeseeable risks associated with your receipt, holding and use of the Hydrogen software.
