Prices are not guaranteed by Presearch and/or users of the Presearch Software. There may be further terms applicable to the services delivered in exchange for PREs.
9. Not Purchase of Software, Equity or Ownership
You are not purchasing the Presearch Software (or any software at all), or Equity, or an Ownership stake in Presearch. Presearch PRE Tokens are to be used in the Presearch ecosystem, primarily to sponsor advertisements to Presearch users, who earn a portion of the token paid in exchange for their time and attention. There are ancillary uses of PREs such as buying merchandise, staking tokens to show support for various Presearch initiatives, accessing virtual real estate or to obtain priority placement on lists, however, none of these uses are guaranteed or assured.
10. Presearch Software Launch Dates
Presearch may provide guidance on the expected launch dates of new or improved Presearch Software, but due to the uncertain nature of software development and pioneering aspects of the Presearch Software, the actual launch date may differ from Presearch’s expectations or announcements.
11. Search Engine Use
PREs are intended to be used only for search engine-related applications such as paying for sponsorships, advertising or search rewards.
12. Securing Your Order and PRE
Presearch strongly recommends that You take steps to ensure that Your Order credentials are not intercepted in transit or stolen while at rest on Your computing device. Your Order credentials will allow anyone possessing them to take control of Your Order of PREs. You shall be solely responsible for securing Your Order.
13. Use of PRE for Transactions
The number of PREs necessary to effect a transaction in relation to the Presearch search engine will vary considerably based on how and when you use your PREs. Presearch specifically disclaims any responsibility for losses, lost opportunity, or damages related to Your inability to run Your intended advertising campaign due to an insufficient number of PREs.
Presearch shall have no obligation to honour requests to refund Your Order.
15. Over-Allocation of PREs
Presearch shall make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that PREs are not oversold (i.e. more sales of PREs than the fixed number available). In the event that PREs are oversold then Presearch shall fill orders on a “first come, first served”-basis. If Your Order is within an oversold lot then Presearch shall provide PREs to You on a pro-rata basis and refund the difference. For example, if You order 50 tokens for $50 and only 30 are available then You will receive 30 tokens and be refunded $20. Presearch shall promptly notify You if Your Order falls within an oversold lot.
16. Integrity of Sale Process
In order to maintain the integrity of the PRE sale process Presearch reserves the right to cancel (and initiate a refund for) Your Order if it determines, in its sole discretion, that You have manipulated Presearch’s sales process through technological means or deception. Presearch also reserves the right to limit the sale of PRE Tokens to any purchaser to respect any maximum token ownership limitations that Presearch decides to institute at its sole discretion.
17. No Warranty
Presearch does not warrant that Your Order will be suitable for Your purposes (or any purpose) and is offered to You without any warranty whatsoever, on an “as-is” basis.

You specifically agree that Presearch (including its directors, officers, and employees) shall not be responsible for any of the following risks: Presearch Software may not launch due to unforeseen technical difficulties and Your Order will consequently have no use with respect to the Presearch Software; or, vulnerabilities in underlying blockchain technology, e.g. the Ethereum platform, such as flaws in its EVM implementation or smart contract exploits; or, problems with the Ethereum blockchain that cause You to not receive Your PREs; or, theft or loss of Your private keys; or, vulnerabilities of the cryptographic foundations of Ethereum (upon which PREs may rely) or any other blockchain that Presearch may employ; or, bugs or unintended operation of smart contracts related to PREs due to Presearch’s error, mistake, or inadvertence; or, regulatory changes in Your local jurisdiction that prohibit PREs, the use of search engines similar to the Presearch Software, Ethereum, or other related technologies; or, wallet software that You use to manage PREs may contain bugs or operate in a way that results in You losing access to PREs. You hereby represent and warrant that You understand the above risks and waive any claims in relation to the realization of the above risks.
