Release stages will be communicated closer to the launch date via Participants’ registered email addresses.
  5. Requirements. Eligible participants must engage in lawful and ethical behavior and must not misrepresent, sell or promise gains that would mislead people to join their referral network.

  13. Contingent Regulatory Disclosures. There is a risk that CVC may be considered a security in certain jurisdictions, including within the United States. Should a determination be made by any regulatory agency, court, or other agent of the United States that CVC is a security, the International Rewards Program is being conducted in compliance with applicable law.
    1. Legend. CVC offered pursuant to the International Rewards Program will be offered only outside of the U.S. to non-U.S. persons. The distribution of CVC pursuant to the International Rewards Program will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Act”) or any state securities or blue sky laws and, if deemed a securities offering under U.S. law, should be treated as transactions to which the registration requirements of the Act do not apply pursuant to Regulation S under the Act. CVC distributed pursuant to the International Rewards Program may not be offered or sold absent compliance with applicable law and in accordance with these Terms. The International Rewards Program has not been approved or disapproved by any U.S. federal or state regulator, nor has any regulatory authority passed upon the merits of this offering or the adequacy or accuracy of material collateral to this offering. Any representation to the contrary is unlawful.
    2. Participant Certifications. Participant certifies that he or she is an Eligible Participant that is not a U.S. person. Participant certifies that he or she will not be acquiring CVC for the account or benefit of any U.S. persons and, in seeking referrals, shall comply with applicable law including the anti-touting provisions in Section 17(b) of the Act, where applicable. Participant agrees to inform referees of his or her participation in and potential compensation under the program.

Participant agrees to resell CVC only in accordance with applicable law and in accordance with these Terms. Participant agrees not to engage in hedging transactions involving CVC.
  14. Limitations of Liability. The Released Parties are not responsible for: (a) any incorrect or inaccurate information, whether caused by referrals, printing errors or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the International Rewards Program; (b) technical failures of any kind, including, but not limited to malfunctions, interruptions, or disconnections in phone lines or network hardware or software; (c) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the entry process or the International Rewards Program; (d) technical or human error in the administration of the International Rewards Program or the processing of registrations; or (e) any injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from an Eligible Participant’s participation in the International Rewards Program or receipt or use or misuse of any prize. If for any reason an Eligible Participant’s registration is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, the Eligible Participant’s sole remedy is another entry in the International Rewards Program. No more than the stated number of tokens will be awarded.
  15. Disputes. Eligible Participant agrees that: (a) any and all disputes, claims, and causes of action arising out of or connected with the International Rewards Program, or any prizes awarded, shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action; (b) any and all disputes, claims, and causes of action arising out of or connected with the International Rewards Program, or any prizes awarded, shall be resolved exclusively by the United States District Court or the appropriate California State Court located in San Francisco County, California; (c) any and all claims, judgments and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with entering the International Rewards Program, but in no event attorneys’ fees; and (d) under no circumstances will an Eligible Participant be permitted to obtain awards for, and Eligible Participant hereby waives all rights to claim punitive, incidental and consequential damages and any other damages, other than for actual out-of-pocket expenses, and any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation, and enforceability of these Terms and Conditions, or the rights and obligations of the Eligible Participant and Sponsor or Administrator in connection with the International Rewards Program, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the State of California or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of California.
  16. Participant’s Personal Information. Information collected from Participants is subject to the Sponsor/Administrator’s Privacy Policy, which is available at https://www.civic.com
  17. Winner Determination. On or about 91 days after September 14, 2020, Administrator will create a list of the top 100,000 referrers (“Potential Winners”). Civic will notify Participants how to view their rewards in the next 90 days following the Entry Period. Winners will not be notified by Civic. Participants must have an active Civic Wallet and can check within their Civic Wallet for the status and amount of any CVC prize tokens. Odds of winning a prize depend on the number of Successful Referrals made during the Entry Period. No cash or other reward substitution will be permitted except at the sole discretion of Civic. Any and all entrant-related expenses, including without limitation any and all federal, state, and/or local taxes will be the sole responsibility of each participant.

Civic reserves the right to limit delivery of prizes to the European Union, Scandinavia, Japan, China, Russia, and Ukraine or to jurisdictions with limited mail services.
  18. Verification of Potential Winners. Potential Winners may be required to complete and return an Affidavit of Eligibility, Release of Liability and Publicity Release (where permitted by law) (collectively, the “Affidavits”) by the date specified by Civic, otherwise an alternate Potential Winner may be selected. In the event that: (a) a Potential Winner cannot be reached for whatever reason after a reasonable effort has been exerted or the Potential Winner notification or Affidavit is returned as undeliverable; (b) a Potential Winner declines or cannot accept, receive, or use the prize for any reason; (c) of noncompliance with the above or within any of the aforesaid time periods; (d) a Potential Winner is found to be ineligible to enter the International Rewards Program or receive the prize; (e) a Potential Winner cannot or does not comply with the Terms and Conditions; or (f) a Potential Winner fails to fulfill the Affidavit-related obligations, the Potential Winner shall be disqualified from the International Rewards Program and an alternate Potential Winner may be selected, at the sole discretion of the Civic from among the other eligible entries received. Sponsor reserves the right to modify the notification and Affidavit procedures in connection with the selection of alternate Potential Winner, if any. Civic reserves the right to refuse delivery of a prize to a winner, in which case the winner will be notified and will be given a detailed statement as to why he or she was refused delivery.
