Purchasers/holders shall not acquire any rights from the company, express or implied, by purchasing or by receiving the coin and possessing it thereafter. The coin is deemed as a cryptoasset based on the Paragraph 5, Article 2, of the Payment Services Act. The coin, however, is not either a prepaid payment means (Article 3 of the Payment Services Act), or securities (bonds, share certificates, and ownership rights pertaining to transactions issued by the company and/or a related company, shares and rights related shares, options or derivatives, CDF contracts or other related rights for the purpose of profit recognition or loss avoidance, the securities to be held by a considerably large number of persons who respond to the solicitation, certificate of ownership of business trust, derivatives ownership of business trust, and any other type of securities, but not limited to the foregoing securities).

Now, for details on roles, functions, rules concerning relevant functions of the business entity and the coin issuing entity, you are responsible for reading and understanding the contents of the “Terms and Conditions” of each and every relevant document.
Regarding Delivery of the Coin – Important Notice on Claims
Claim refers to the work by a purchaser/receiver to notify the company (Social Good Foundation Inc.) of the Ethereum Wallet by which the purchaser/receiver receives SocialGood. Claim functions will be disclosed accordingly. The input deadline shall be announced by e-mails and/or in HP announcements. Unless the Claim is completed by the deadline, any coin corresponding to that Claim will not be issued. The coin is non-negotiable and is attached to the functionality of selling limitation. Until the coin gets listed on an exchange based on the legal contract between us and the exchange, the coin is systematically prohibited to be negotiated and to be transferred to any other places than the Ethereum Wallet notified by the purchaser/receiver. Everyone, even including us, are unable to transfer any coins before the listing on an exchange to any other places than the Ethereum Wallet notified by the purchaser/receiver. Do not designate a wallet issued by a cryptocurrency exchange for the Ethereum Wallet to be designated for receiving purposes. Please make sure to use the wallet capable of ERC-20 Standard, and to register the Ethereum Wallet which the purchaser/receiver owns. If the company deems it as name-lending or for the purpose of money laundering, issuance is cancelled. No money shall be refunded even where the Ethereum Wallet was wrongly registered. In no event shall the company be liable for loss or damage attributable to Claim deficiency (including the failure and/or absence of the Ethereum Wallet notification by the purchaser). Remittance of cryptocurrency and fiat currency to us for the purpose of purchasing coins is final and non-refundable. Refunds, however, are only possible to be made to purchasers should we reject a purchase request as the result of KYC (Know-Your-Client).
Regarding Risks of the Coin (SocialGood)
Coin purchasers and holders should, before the purchase, retention, and use of any coins, carefully consider the following risks associated with the coin. We deem that the purchaser and the holder have fully understood them and accepted them before the purchase.
Please understand that price may drastically fluctuate day-to-day, and accordingly it could happen to yield huge profits or vis-à-vis cause losses to purchasers and/or holders.
Risk Relating to Technical Matters
Various technologies that support cryptocurrency and blockchain technology are just ever-progressing. Therefore, many risks, including system failure, loss of secret key, cryptocurrency-related protocol malfunction/failure or abandonment, attacks from outside parties, or weakness relating to hacking security, always exist concerning related technique and related technology in connection with that field.
Risk Involved in the Project
The planned Project mentioned in the Whitepaper may not necessarily be proceeded with as planned. Profit, right later on, and others that we describe in the Whitepaper with regard to the coin depends on the development of Social Good Project. Although we strive to accomplish the Project in accordance with the plan explained in the Whitepaper, there may be possibilities where plan components such as profit plan, right plan, scheduling, contents, and others could change. The company does not guarantee whether those components shall be achieved as aimed or planned at all.
Risk Associated with the Coin Market
This coin is a digital asset that has been developed by our company. By retaining it after purchasing SocialGood or receiving it by cashback, purchasers/holders do not acquire any rights from us either explicitly or implicitly. Sellers will neither guarantee to support the secondary distribution and external evaluation of the coin nor promote them. While distribution and trading through markets post liquidity risk, price fluctuation risk and the like to coins, the company will assume no responsibility for various circumstances, events or outcomes, etc. to be brought about to coins by those risks.
Furthermore, the company aims to be dealt by cryptocurrency exchange service providers (meaning the so-called “to be listed on an exchange”) at a certain point in the future; however, the company does not guarantee whether the goal will be achieved as aimed or planned at all. Although the company retains the right to have the coin listed on their exchanges of cryptocurrency exchange service providers the company is not obligated to do so (listing) at all, because listing the coin on an exchange is up to the cryptocurrency exchange service providers’ own judgment and decision.
Examinations and judgments by the regulatory authorities may also affect listing one way or another. These matters will eventually generate non-liquidity risks with respect to coins purchased and/or owned by purchasers/holders.
In addition, purchasers/holders cannot sell coins that they purchased/received until the coins get listed on the exchanges of cryptocurrency exchange service providers. Although the company strives to do its best to create a market of the coin, the company does not guarantee whether the goal will be achieved as aimed or planned at all. Purchasers/holders should, therefore, understand there may be the possibility where the liquidity of the coin could decrease more than they initially expected at the time of purchase/receipt.
Risk of Loss Not Covered by Insurance
Unlike bank accounts or accounts of other financial institutions, the coin will not be covered by any insurance unless a purchaser/holder specially obtains and takes out a private insurance. Accordingly, in the event of loss or lost utility value, there will be no public insurance company such as a deposit insurance corporation at which such purchaser/holder can rely on and there will be no private insurance arranged by sellers.
Risk Associated with Legal Restrictions
In many jurisdictions, the status of regulations over coins, sales of coins and blockchain technology are not clear. It is difficult to recognize/ foresee how the regulatory authorities apply or will apply the current regulations as to such technologies including the coin and its use. Likewise, it is also difficult to recognize/foresee how the parliaments or the regulatory authorities of each nation enforce or will enforce amendment to laws and regulations that affect blockchain technology including the coin and its use. Regulatory measures will have various influences on the value of the coin in various ways, such as making a judgment that the coin is a financial instrument subject to regulation which requires registration or a permit and license. In cases where regulatory measures or amendment to laws and regulations shall determine the operation in a certain jurisdiction to be illegal or where acquiring an approval of regulatory authority is necessary for operating in a certain jurisdiction shall be determined to be commercially unfavorable, and the company may make the decision to suspend the operation in that jurisdiction.
Risk Arising From Taxation
Taxation of the coin is not necessarily clear yet. Purchasers/holders shall, in connection with the purchase of the coin and the holding of the coin, seek advice concerning taxation by themselves and consequently they may be subjected to disadvantageous tax treatment including requirements for withholding tax, corporate income tax and a tax return.
Risk of Unfavorable Fluctuation of Value of Ethereum or Other Currencies
The company intends to, as explained in the Whitepaper, appropriate the sales of the coin sale for development and maintenance of the ecosystem. The sales of the coin sale will be denominated in Ether and Bitcoin, which may in some cases, be converted into another cryptocurrency or legal tender. If the value of Ether or other currencies adversely fluctuate after the selling period, sellers may become unable to allocate the funds for development etc.. It may become likely that the ecosystem cannot be developed and maintained by the contemplated method.
There is the possibility that sellers or the Company will dissolve themselves due to a number of reasons, such as disadvantageous fluctuation of value of cryptocurrency or legal tender, decrease in efficacy of the coin, commercial failure, or as a motion of objection against the ownership of intellectual properties.
Risk Arising Out of the Lack of Right to Governance
A coin will not grant any type of rights to governance with respect to the developer of the ecosystem, sellers or affiliates, etc. Therefore, the company will make, at its discretion, various decisions concerned with the ecosystem, sellers, the Company or corporate affiliated companies, such as decisions to discontinue the development plan or initiative of the ecosystem, to generate, sell or gift additional coins, or to sell-out or liquidate the Company. There is the possibility that those decisions will have an adverse effect on the ecosystem and the coin purchased.
Any Other Risks Not Predicted or Recognized at Present
Cryptographic coins like this coin are a new untested technology. In addition to the risks previously explained, other risks such as natural disasters, e.g., earthquakes, unpredictable by sellers at present with regard to the purchase, retention or use of the coin could at some point exist. Such risks are possible to actually arise as an unforeseen transformation or combination of risks being examined here.
Responsibility Concerning Security
Purchasers/holders shall be responsible for taking reasonable measures with respect to the wallet to be used when keeping the coin before and after purchasing/receiving it from the company and thus shall manage all aspects of the storage mechanism used to hold the coin, to preserve a secret key and information necessary for access to the storage mechanism. In the event a secret key of a purchaser/holder or other information is lost, the purchaser/holder may lose access to the coin. The company shall not be held responsible for such loss.
Furthermore, in addition to the foregoing, if a third party utilizes the Social Good service using wallet information or other registration information of the purchaser/holder, the company shall deem the said use as the use by the purchaser/holder.
