8.2 YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE NO RIGHT AGAINST OORT OR ANY OORT’S REPRESENTATIVE, EXCEPT IN THE EVENT OF INTENTIONAL FRAUD. YOUR CONSENT TO THIS DISCLAIMER FORMS THE BASIS OF YOUR USE OF OORT’S PRODUCTS AND SERVICES. OORT WOULD NOT PROVIDE SERVICES AND PRODUCTS TO YOU, WERE IT NOT FOR YOUR FULL, COMPLETE AND WILLING AGREEMENT TO THIS DISCLAIMER.
8.3 You understand and accept that the software and hardware, technology and technical concepts and theories usually used in the Blockchain industry are still in an early development stage and unproven, there is no warranty that Oort’s Products and Services and/or related technology will be fully developed, uninterrupted or error-free and there is an inherent risk that the technology could contain weaknesses, vulnerabilities or bugs causing, inter alia, the complete loss of your data and personal information. You understand and accept the inherent risks associated with decentralized data services generally. There is no guarantee that the utility of Oort’s Products and Services will be fully delivered or will remain operational for any period of time.
The potential risks include, but are not limited to, risks associated with:
(a) decentralization nature of the Product;
(c) high volatility;
(d) anonymity of transactions;
(e) exploitation for illegal purposes;
(f) theft (including through hacking);
(g) instability and other flaws of blockchain products;
(h) immutability of transactions.
In addition, the regulations of blockchain related projects are undeveloped and are likely to evolve rapidly with potential adverse consequences, and developments in regulations may cause Oort to change its business, products and services.
8.4 You acknowledge that you are able to bear the risk of using Oort’s Products and Services and are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of Oort’s Products and Services and of making an informed decision in respect thereto.
8.5 You understand and accept that the blockchain technology allows new forms of interaction and that it is possible that certain jurisdictions will apply existing regulations on, or introduce new regulations addressing blockchain technology based applications, which may be contrary to any initial setup of Oort’s Products and Services and which may, inter alia, result in an adverse effect to your use of Oort’s Products.
8.6 Oort maintains sole discretion in the conduct of its business, including as related to its Products and Services, maintenance and use of any of its Products and Services.

8.9 The regulatory status on blockchain and the decentralized products and services 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 Oort’s Products and Services. It is likewise difficult to predict how or whether legislatures or regulatory agencies may implement changes to law and regulation affecting the blockchain technology and Oort’s Products and Services. Regulatory actions could negatively impact Oort’s Products and Services in various ways, including, for purposes of illustration only, through a determination that Oort’s Products and Services is a regulated instrument that requires registration or licensing.

8.11 You understand and accept that the underlying software application and software platform of blockchain projects, the internet, the blockchain-based network, and other involved software, technology components and/or platforms concerned with Oort may be exposed to attacks by hackers or other individuals that could result in theft or loss of your data and personal information.
8.12 You understand and accept that public blockchain-based systems depend on independent validators, and therefore may be vulnerable to consensus attacks including, but not limited to, double-spend attacks, majority voting power attacks, race condition attacks and censorship attacks. Any successful attacks present a risk to Oort’s system that could result in loss of your data and personal information.
8.13 You understand and accept that Oort’s Products and Services use an in-built decentralized governance system. For this reason, it is possible that the decentralized governance system adopts proposals that have an adverse effect on the useful functioning of such networks. If a decentralized governance system is attacked, or becomes controlled either directly or indirectly by some party who makes unwise decisions, or the community generally makes unwise decisions, your data and personal information might be hacked or even completely lost.
