Where any of the Licences are terminated, you must immediately cease using and accessing the Service and delete any copies of the App held by you.
6. NOVA ACCOUNT
In order to use the App and earn Tokens, you must create a NOVA Account. You are responsible for all uses of your NOVA Account whether by you or a third party. You should ensure that you use the email/ google/ apple/ facebook account for verification of your NOVA account and that the details of your email/ google / apple /facebook account information are kept confidential and secure at all times.
You must not select as your username a name that you do not have the right to use, or another person’s name with the intent to impersonate that person. You must not transfer your NOVA Account to anyone else without our prior written permission.
Access to your NOVA Account can become restricted or even impossible if you lose control over the email/ google / apple/ facebook account to which your NOVA Account is registered.
Your NOVA Account logs details of all Tokens generated by you and any transfers of Tokens to or from your NOVA Account. Please review your NOVA Account regularly. If you identify any erroneous transaction or unexpected activity on your NOVA Account, or you believe that the security of your NOVA Account has been compromised, you must let us know as soon as possible.
Different VIP services may apply to the NOVA Accounts of different users and, depending on the VIP service that your entitlement to access functionality of the App or generate Tokens may vary, it will also affect the locking period of the Tokens.
When using the App on your mobile device, NOVA will operate in the background of your mobile device, which in turn may have an impact on the battery life of such a device.
The App allows you to send your Tokens to other users of the App. Please ensure that you have verified the identity of the recipient of the relevant Tokens before sending them.
7. EARNING TOKENS
“Tokens” are units of exchange that users of the App may generate through verified actions in the App (https://www.novanetwork.one/whitepaper-2) only. Tokens may be used to get certain benefits that are offered via the App. Tokens cannot be redeemed for cash from NovaQP or any of its affiliates, unless we expressly agree otherwise with you in writing.
We reserve the right to destroy Tokens that we have reason to believe have not been created by verified actions and to suspend or disable any NOVA Account used in such a way.
We reserve the right to destroy or redistribute Tokens that we have reason to believe have been obtained through fraud, for instance by defrauding another NOVA user, and to suspend or disable any NOVA Account used in such a way.
We reserve the right and retain the absolute discretion to determine and alter, from time to time, the eligible forms of action, action verification algorithms and amounts of verified action that must be undertaken by users in order to generate Tokens using the App (for example, we may alter the number of votes required to generate a Nova Token).
Details of current eligibility criteria and the actions required to generate Tokens are provided within the Whitepaper section of the App. Actions verification conducted by the App is considered final and cannot be revised or reversed.
We may cap the maximum amount of Tokens that users of the App may generate each day using the App.
For residents of the United States, users can complete the Know Your Customer (KYC) process within the app to accumulate tokens. However, these tokens will be held in a locked account after the locking period (just like in-app credit), or until all legal issues pertaining to cryptocurrency are resolved in the US market. Once these issues have been cleared, the app will release the tokens to the users as appropriate.
