2.3 It is your responsibility to ensure that your personal information in your wallet is kept current and up-to-date. You can amend your details at any time on the Website. We will only contact you using the details provided on your wallet and we will not have any liability to you for any non-receipt or non-delivery of communications as a result of the details on your account being incorrect.
2.4 UFORIKA is a decentralised metaverse environment built on the Polygon network (the “Metaverse”). By creating a wallet with us, you can participate in the Metaverse and take advantage of all that it has to offer. For more details about the UFORIKA user experience and the range of things that you can do in the Metaverse, please refer to our Litepaper, a link to which is https://www.uforika.io/privacy-policy
2.5 We will issue ERC-20 compliant digital tokens (known as “$FORA”) that you can purchase or earn in order to participate in the activities in the Metaverse (such as battles, races and the marketplace). The $FORA tokens will initially be available in private and public pre-sale rounds, and it is our intention to have them accepted by recognised digital asset exchanges in the future. For full details of how you can purchase, earn and use the $FORA tokens, please refer to the Website.
2.6 We will issue non-fungible tokens (“NFTs”) which will represent ownership of particular items in the Metaverse. The NFTs will be ERC-1155 compliant. For full details of how you can purchase and use the NFTs, please refer to the Website.
3. Risk warnings and the use/purpose of the $FORA tokens and the NFTs
3.1 You should be aware that carrying out transactions in digital assets or cryptocurrencies carries a certain level of risk and that the value of digital assets can go up or down, sometimes with a greater degree of volatility than fiat currencies. By registering a wallet with us, you represent and warrant that you are aware of these risks and you acknowledge and accept that under no circumstances will we be liable to you for fluctuations in the value of the $FORA tokens or the NFTs, or any losses that you may incur as a result of such.

If we do so, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you of any materially significant, non-clerical changes by emailing you at the email address you have registered with us. It is however your responsibility to review these terms of business from time to time. Your continued use of your wallet will constitute your acceptance of any amendments that we may make to these terms of business from time to time. If you do not accept the amendments, you should not continue to use your wallet.
