The Company is a business incorporated in Estonia which creates a remote voting technology based on the Ethereum blockchain. This distributed ledger technology contains unchangeable code functions, leveraging software tokens known as BOU to operate as fuel for its Network of smart contract users.
The Company provides its platform as a service, and build tools and software for users to be able to interface with the blockchain based voting system.
As part of an international growth strategy, it is anticipated that Boulé will provide expanded administrative, technical and development services to this blockchain technology network enabled by its users.
In order to fund software development, promotion, marketing, legal compliance procedures, and ecosystem building, Boulé initiates this crowdfunding campaign to offer software tokens for sale to users, charitable donors and others interested in promoting our services, software applications and network.
Overview of Network and Services
Boulé is the first fully decentralised voting system. Built on Ethereum blockchain technology and accessible from mobile devices, the Boulé network allows anyone to vote for political elections or just surveys from anywhere in the world. We offer technology and services to the governments and institutions, as well as to privates, associations and everyone is interested in asking specific question to specific target audience.
BOU, the Boulé token, is backed by the success of the Boulé project. Boulé will use a portion of its turnover, not directly devoted to growth and expansion, to buy BOU tokens back from the market, dedicating a measure of Boulé success to incentivizing participation among BOU token holders while promoting blockchain remote voting of this Boulé initiative. In this connection, BOU tokens will be able to be used to run specific surveys to a specific target audience.

Token Sale Procedures and Specification
The company sale token supply is 48,890,693 BOU that will be offered to the public in exchange for contributions as set forth below. Undistributed tokens will be retained in inventory to be utilized as a Development Fund.
The price per BOU tokens is set in ETH at 1200-1000 BOU per 1 ETH during the contribution period, whichever price is higher at the time of token sale. The Company will only accept contributions made in ETH, the asset that Company will accept as the exchangeable values for Tokens. Company reserves the right to lower or increase the price per Token, at its sole discretion, during the Sale Period.
All Tokens will be of equal value and functionality.
It is the objective of the company to sell 48,890,693 BOU during the duration of the token sale event. If less than 48,890,693 BOU in proceeds has been sold by the termination of the Sale Period (the "Minimum Threshold"), the unsold balance of Tokens that is authorized but unissued to purchasers will be retained in Company inventory to be utilized by Company as part of its incentive Development Fund to be distributed in accordance with the decision of the board on a quarterly basis as elsewhere set forth herein.
The Company will conduct a token sale (the "Sale Period"), which will begin the 25th of October 2017 and end the 12th of November 2017 ("The End Date") or when 48,890,693 BOU has been sold, whichever is earlier.
To receive Tokens during the Sale Period, you must have certain token wallets established and operational. Specifically, you must have: (i) an Ethereum wallet if you wish to purchase Tokens using Ether wallet, and (ii) an Ethereum wallet that supports the ERC20 token standard in order to receive Tokens that you purchase from the Company. Company reserves the right to prescribe additional guidance regarding specific wallet requirements.
If you wish to purchase Tokens, you must first send Ethereum either from your Ethereum address to either Ethereum blockchain address. Second, you will need to provide an Ethereum ERC20 compatible wallet address for the delivery of Tokens you purchase via the Smart Contract System in user Profile section of the wallet. Company may also request certain optional information, such as an email address, through the web interface.
The web application will then provide you with a unique deposit address for Ether. Once the unique deposit address has received Ether from you, Company will authorize the Smart Contract System to deliver Tokens to the Ethereum ERC20 wallet address that you provided to Company for delivery of the Tokens after the end of the token sale period.
The Company anticipates that delivery of Tokens from the Smart Contract System to purchasers will occur within three weeks after the Sale Period concludes, but reserves the right to delay delivery up to four weeks after the conclusion of the Sale Period. Although the Company does not anticipate any security issues arising from the sale of Tokens, this four week timeframe is intended as a precautionary buffer period for Company to conduct audit procedures and to resolve any such security issues.
The Company anticipates the following token allocation among the contributors.
Advisors and advisors fund 20%
Foundation fund 20%
Tokens not sold during the Sale Period will be retained by the Company (the "Retained Tokens") and allocated to the Foundation Fund.
The Company currently anticipates using the tokens from Development Fund to distribute to new users, compensate employees (including salaries and non-salary compensation), to fund future development of the Network, provide grants to (or purchase equity stakes in) third-parties working on projects in the Boulé ecosystem, donate Tokens to non-profit entities, and support general development of the Boulé ecosystem. These anticipated purposes are listed for illustration only, and Company reserves the right to use Development Fund Tokens for these purposes (or others) at its sole discretion.
Except to the extent paid as compensation for work performed for the Company, neither the founders nor the existing backers, supporters, and certain users of the Company and it's network, services and products will receive Retained Tokens from Company or any amount of the Ether that is used to purchase Tokens from Company during the Sale Period other than the percentages listed as part of the breakdown contained in the Terms of Sale.
The Ether proceeds from Company's sale of Tokens will be used to compensate technical and non-technical staff, cover marketing costs and operating expenses, and develop technical infrastructure, among other purposes as summarized in the breakdown set forth in the Terms of Sale.
Currently, we envision that our development of technical infrastructure will focus on two primary areas. The first area of development involves strengthening and enhancement of our existing Network, Services and related infrastructure.
The second area of development involves our anticipated initiatives for creating new tools, capabilities and functions for the Services and Network expansion on an international basis. These initiatives are currently anticipated to include (i) business development; (ii) developing a variety of software business tools; (iii) financing external teams working on applications leveraging the network; (iv) developing and contribute to industry or regulatory standards; (v) creating ancillary technology related to the network and its objectives; and (vi) developing integrations via partnerships. Some of these anticipated initiatives are described in more detail in our Whitepaper.
ACKNOWLEDGMENT and ASSUMPTION of RISKS
Certain Risk Factors Relating to Purchase, Sale and Use of Tokens
Important Note: As noted elsewhere in these Terms, the Tokens are not being structured or sold as securities or any other form of investment product. Accordingly, none of the information presented in this Exhibit C is intended to form the basis for any investment decision, and no specific recommendations are intended. Company expressly disclaims any and all responsibility for any direct or consequential loss or damage of any kind whatsoever arising directly or indirectly from: (i) reliance on any information contained in this Exhibit C, (ii) any error, omission or inaccuracy in any such information or (iii) any action resulting from such information.
By purchasing, holding and using Tokens, you expressly acknowledge and assume the following risks:
Risk of Losing Access to Tokens Due to Loss of Private Key(s)
A private key, or a combination of private keys, is necessary to control and dispose of Tokens stored in your digital wallet. Accordingly, loss of requisite private key(s) associated with your digital wallet storing Tokens will result in loss of such Tokens. Moreover, any third party that gains access to such private key(s), including by gaining access to login credentials of a hosted wallet service you use, may be able to misappropriate your Tokens.
Risks Associated with the Ethereum Protocol
Because Tokens and the Network are based on the Ethereum protocol, any malfunction, breakdown or abandonment of the Ethereum protocol may have a material adverse effect on the Network or Tokens. Moreover, advances in cryptography, or technical advances such as the development of quantum computing, could present risks to the Tokens and the Network by rendering ineffective the cryptographic consensus mechanism that underpins the Ethereum protocol.
Risk of Mining Attacks
As with other decentralized cryptographic tokens based on the Ethereum protocol, the Tokens are susceptible to attacks by miners in the course of validating Token transactions on the Ethereum blockchain, including, but not limited, to double-spend attacks, majority mining power attacks, and selfish-mining attacks. Any successful attacks present a risk to the Network and the Tokens, including, but not limited to, accurate execution and recording of transactions involving Tokens.
Risk of Hacking and Security Weaknesses
Hackers or other malicious groups or organizations may attempt to interfere with the Network or the Tokens in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, treasury vulnerability, malware attacks, denial of service
attacks, consensus-based attacks, man in the middle, Sybil attacks, smurfing and spoofing. Furthermore, because the Network is based on open-source software, there is a risk that a third party or a member of the Company team may intentionally or unintentionally introduce weaknesses into the core infrastructure of the Network, which could negatively affect the Network and the Tokens.
Hackers or other groups or organizations may attempt to steal the ETH revenue from the initial sale, thus potentially impacting the ability of Boulé to develop the Boulé Platform and operate the Network. To account for this risk, Boulé has and will continue to implement comprehensive security precautions to safeguard the proceeds obtained from the sale of BOU. Multi-factor security measures will be taken to protect ETH and all currencies and proceeds including physical elements, algorithms, multisignature keys, anti-spear-phishing procedures, splitting of funds, hot/cold wallet partitioning and diversification. Moreover, regular security audits of hot and cold wallets will be conducted by internal and external teams. As acknowledged, there is always a risk that the Boulé Team, or other third parties not directly affiliated with the Parties, may intentionally or unintentionally introduce weaknesses or bugs into the core infrastructural elements of the Boulé Platform causing the system to lose BOU stored in one or more Purchaser accounts or other accounts or lose sums of other valued tokens issued on the Boulé Platform. Boulé has taken steps to build, maintain, and secure the infrastructure of the Boulé Platform, and will continue to do so after the initial sale. For example, Boulé intends to hire external consultants on a periodic basis to assess and audit the security of the Boulé Platform and will work with cryptography and security experts to develop and employ best practices to audit the Platform. As acknowledged by both parties, advances in code cracking, or technical advances such as the development of quantum computers, could present risks to cryptocurrencies and the Boulé Platform, which could result in the theft or loss of BOU or other valuable assets. To the extent possible, BOU intends to update the protocol underlying the Boulé Platform to account for any advances in cryptography and to incorporate additional security measures, but it cannot predict the future of cryptography or the success of any future security updates. As with other cryptocurrencies, the blockchain used for the Boulé Platform is susceptible to mining attacks, among others. Any successful attacks present a risk to the Ethereum Platform generally, and the Boulé network specifically, effecting expected proper execution and sequencing of BOU transactions, and expected proper execution and sequencing of contract computations, as well as other potential losses identified here as risk factors, in addition to those unidentified or unexpected.The purchase of BOU carries with these significant risks. Prior to purchasing BOU, the Purchaser should carefully consider the risks herein identified, and, to the extent necessary, consult experts of your choosing ( cryptographic and cyber security specialists, lawyers, accountants, and/or other professionals) prior to determining whether to purchase BOU.
Risks Associated with Markets for Tokens
The Tokens are intended to be used solely within the Network, and Company will not support or otherwise facilitate any secondary trading or external valuation of Tokens. This restricts the contemplated avenues for using Tokens to the provision or receipt of Services, and could therefore create illiquidity risk with respect to the Tokens you hold. Even if secondary trading of Tokens is facilitated by third party exchanges, such exchanges may be relatively new and subject to little or no regulatory oversight, making them more susceptible to fraud or manipulation.
Furthermore, to the extent that third parties do ascribe an external exchange value to Tokens (e.g., as denominated in a digital or fiat currency), such value may be extremely volatile and diminish to zero.
Risk of Uninsured Losses
Unlike bank accounts or accounts at some other financial institutions, Tokens are uninsured unless you specifically obtain private insurance to insure them. Thus, in the event of loss or loss of utility value, there is no public insurer, such as the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, or private insurance arranged by us, to offer recourse to you.
Risks Associated with Uncertain Regulations and Enforcement Actions
The regulatory status of the Tokens and distributed ledger technology is unclear or unsettled in many jurisdictions. It is difficult to predict how or whether regulatory agencies may apply existing regulation with respect to such technology and its applications, including the Network and the Tokens. It is likewise difficult to predict how or whether legislatures or regulatory agencies may implement changes to law and regulation affecting distributed ledger technology and its applications, including the Network and the Tokens. Regulatory actions could negatively impact the Network and the Tokens in various ways, including, for purposes of illustration only, through a determination that Tokens are a regulated financial instrument that require registration or licensing. Company may cease operations in a jurisdiction in the event that regulatory actions, or changes to law or regulation, make it illegal to operate in such jurisdiction, or commercially undesirable to obtain the necessary regulatory approval(s) to operate in such jurisdiction.
Risks Arising from Taxation
The tax characterization of Tokens is uncertain. You must seek your own tax advice in connection with purchasing Tokens, which may result in adverse tax consequences to you, including withholding taxes, income taxes and tax reporting requirements.
Risk of Alternative Networks
It is possible that alternative networks could be established that utilize the same open source code and protocol underlying the Network and attempt to facilitate services that are materially similar to the Services. The Network may compete with these alternative networks, which could negatively impact the Network and Tokens.
Risk of Insufficient Interest in the Network or Distributed Applications
It is possible that the Network will not be used by a large number of individuals, companies and other entities or that there will be limited public interest in the creation and development of distributed ecosystems (such as the Network) more generally. Such a lack of use or interest could negatively impact the development of the Network and therefore the potential utility of Tokens.
Risks Associated with the Development and Maintenance of the Network
The Network is still under development and may undergo significant changes over time. Although we intend for the Tokens and Network to follow the specifications set forth in our Terms and Conditions, and throughout or site, and intend to take commercially reasonable steps toward those ends, we may have to make changes to the specifications of the Tokens or Network for any number of legitimate reasons.
This could create the risk that the Tokens or Network, as further developed and maintained, may not meet your expectations at the time of purchase. Furthermore, despite our good faith efforts to develop and maintain the Network, it is still possible that the Network will experience malfunctions or otherwise fail to be adequately developed or maintained, which may negatively impact the Network and Tokens.
Risk of an Unfavorable Fluctuation of Ether and Other Currency Value
The Company team intends to use the proceeds from selling Tokens to fund the maintenance and development of the Network, as described further in the Terms of Sale. The proceeds of the Token sale will be denominated in Ether or Bitcoin, and converted into other cryptographic and fiat currencies. In addition, some pre-sales of the Tokens may also be denominated in fiat currencies. If the value of Ether or other currencies fluctuates unfavorably during or after the Sale Period, the Company team may not be able to fund development, or may not be able to develop or maintain the Network in the manner that it intended.
Risk of Dissolution of the Company or Network
It is possible that, due to any number of reasons, including, but not limited to, an unfavorable fluctuation in the value of Ether (or other cryptographic and fiat currencies), decrease in the Tokens' utility, the failure of commercial relationships, or intellectual property ownership challenges, the Network may no longer be viable to operate and the Company may dissolve.
Risks Arising from Lack of Governance Rights
Because Tokens confer no governance rights of any kind with respect to the Network or Company or its corporate affiliates, all decisions involving the Network or Company will be made by Company at its sole discretion, including, but not limited to, decisions to discontinue the Network, to create and sell more Tokens for use in the Network, or to sell or liquidate the Company. These decisions could adversely affect the Network and the Tokens you hold.
Risks Involving Cloud Storage
As the Company provides services to individual and institutional clients, including users and applications which involves data storage to some extent, the Services are susceptible to a number of risks related to the storage of data in the cloud. While the Company does not have access to the contents of the data stored through the Services, the Services may involve the storage of large amounts of sensitive and/or proprietary information, which may be compromised in the event of a cyber- attack or other malicious activity. Similarly, the Services may be interrupted and files may become temporarily unavailable in the event of such an attack or malicious activity. Because users can use a variety of hardware and software that may interface with the Network, there is the risk that the Services may become unavailable or interrupted based on a failure of interoperability or an inability to integrate these third-party systems and devices that the Company does not control with the Company's Services. The risk that the Services may face increasing interruptions and the Network may face additional security vulnerabilities could adversely affect the Network and therefore the future utility of any Tokens that you hold.
Cryptographic tokens such as BOU Tokens are a new and untested technology. In addition to the risks included in this Exhibit C, there are other risks associated with your purchase, holding and use of Tokens, including those that the Company cannot anticipate. Such risks may further materialize as unanticipated variations or combinations of the risks discussed in this Exhibit C.
