  • Token Rewards: Users can earn token rewards for engaging with the app. These rewards and reward programs can change or stop at any time without prior notification to the users.

  • User Feed: Users can upload personal information, such as their name and photo, to their feed. IMPRESSO will strive to ensure that content is not abusive or disturbing, but we are not liable for such content.

Validation of Educational and Professional Certificates:

  • Peer-to-Peer Verification: We validate educational and professional certificates, career history, and career achievements using peer-to-peer verification methods.

  • Disclaimer: We do not seek the original source of the item to be validated. Users should be aware that there is always a possibility of errors, and we are not liable for any misinterpretation of the validation results.

All discussions between users carry some risk, and you should not share any private information if you feel it may be risky. IMPRESSO takes no liability for any interactions or information shared between users. If you encounter abusive or disturbing content or behavior, whether in the user feed or in chats, report it immediately. Review and follow IMPRESSO’s Safety Tips available on the website.

 

7. IMPRESSO Tokens

IMPRESSO Tokens (MOCA and ESSO) within the app function as standard digital tokens similar to those in other gaming apps. These tokens are not blockchain-based tokens or cryptocurrencies by default. Users have the option to convert these standard digital tokens into blockchain-based tokens, which will then be stored in their Web3 wallet.

7.1 Normal Wallet and Web3 Wallet

The IMPRESSO app includes two types of wallets:

  • Normal Wallet: This wallet holds standard digital tokens (MOCA and ESSO) that can be used for in-app transactions.

  • Web3 Wallet: This wallet holds blockchain-based tokens (converted from standard digital tokens) and NFTs. These tokens and NFTs are managed using Web3 wallet services like MetaMask.

7.2 Conversion to Blockchain Tokens

Users may choose to convert their standard digital tokens (MOCA and ESSO) into blockchain-based tokens. Once converted, these tokens will reside in the Web3 wallet. The same names (MOCA and ESSO) are used for both types of tokens, but their nature and storage differ.

7.3 Loss of Tokens

IMPRESSO takes no responsibility for any loss of your tokens due to your negligence or unauthorized access to your account. Examples of such circumstances include but are not limited to:

  • Tampering with the IMPRESSO app.

  • Jailbreaking your device.

  • Your device being hacked or compromised in any way.

  • Unauthorized transfers initiated from your account.

You are solely responsible for ensuring the security of your account and device. IMPRESSO is not liable for any unauthorized transactions, and any loss of tokens under these circumstances is the sole responsibility of the user.

7.4 Token Swapping

IMPRESSO tokens (MOCA and ESSO) will soon be available for swapping with other cryptocurrencies through Decentralized Exchanges (DEX) and Centralized Exchanges. Users should be aware that once tokens are in the Web3 network, their prices can fluctuate significantly. Users with financial motivations for these tokens should be aware of such risks. IMPRESSO is not liable for any price fluctuations or market conditions.

 

8. Web3 Wallet and NFT Integration

IMPRESSO incorporates the use of Web3 wallets, such as MetaMask and similar services, for managing cryptocurrencies, tokens, and NFTs. By using these wallets within the Service, you agree to the following:

  • Secret Keys: You are solely responsible for remembering and securely storing your secret keys. IMPRESSO does not store, have access to, or manage your secret keys.

  • Loss of Keys: IMPRESSO is not responsible for any loss resulting from forgotten, misplaced, or stolen secret keys. If you lose access to your secret keys, you may lose access to your wallet and any cryptocurrencies, tokens, or NFTs stored within it.

  • Wallet Security: You are responsible for the security of your Web3 wallet. IMPRESSO does not take responsibility for any loss of cryptocurrencies, tokens, or NFTs due to unauthorized access or security breaches of your wallet.

  • Transactions: All transactions conducted using your Web3 wallet are final. IMPRESSO does not have the ability to reverse or refund any transactions made through these wallets.

  • NFTs: Any NFTs managed through your Web3 wallet are your responsibility. IMPRESSO is not responsible for any loss, theft, or unauthorized access to your NFTs.

By creating an account and posting content on the Service, you grant IMPRESSO a worldwide, non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free license to use, copy, modify, distribute, and display your content in connection with the Service.
