2.2 Any agreement to purchase and sell any WiseAlpha Product will be several and not joint on the part of the Fractional Bond Issuer and any other relevant WiseAlpha Product Issuer that may have acceded to this Agreement.
3.1.1 Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, WiseAlpha Technologies will provide you the opportunity through the Platform:
3.1.2 The Fractional Bonds shall be issued pursuant to your agreement to purchase Fractional Bond(s) on the basis of the terms set out herein and subject always to the Terms and Conditions of the Fractional Bonds. The purchase price for any Fractional Bonds you purchase through the Platform will be set at an Offering Price that the Fractional Bond Issuer determines from time to time of the principal amount of the Fractional Bonds that you decide to purchase. The Completion Price will be at a price no greater than 0.5% above the Offering Price; otherwise a re-confirmation of the Order will be requested from you.

If the purchase of the Investment does not close, then the Fractional Bond Issuer will inform you and release you (and the related funds) from your purchase commitment.
3.1.4 In certain cases the Fractional Bond Issuer or another party may underwrite any shortfall in orders so that a particular trade for an Investment can be closed. In such circumstances, it will be made clear in the particulars of the trade on the Platform that an underwriter has been identified and that the trade has been underwritten. The terms and conditions relating to any underwriting will be determined by and documented separately by the Fractional Bond Issuer.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, other WiseAlpha Product Issuers that may accede to the Agreement pursuant to clause 18 (Accession) may provide you the opportunity through the Platform to purchase other WiseAlpha Products with a Minimum Initial Purchase Denomination as may be listed on the Market Page and subject to such terms and conditions of the relevant WiseAlpha Product as separately specified.

3.3.5 You irrevocably undertake and agree that you shall not at any time give GCEN or GCS any instructions, or revoke any instructions, in respect of any Product Account or GCEN/GCS Monies and that, if any such instructions are given or revoked, GCEN and GCS (as applicable) shall not be required to comply with them.
3.3.6 You irrevocably undertake and agree that GCEN and GCS shall be entitled to rely on all instructions given to them by the Fractional Bond Issuer and/or WiseAlpha Technologies and/or the Administrator;
3.3.7 You agree that neither GCEN nor GCS shall be under any obligation to:
3.3.8 You agree that neither GCEN nor GCS has made any recommendation, or provided any advice, to you in connection with any Order, Fractional Bonds, WiseAlpha Products or Investments or any decision to make any Order.
3.3.9 You agree that neither GCEN nor GCS nor any of their respective officers, directors or employees shall be liable to you for any losses, liabilities, costs, damages, and expenses (including, without limitation, counsel fees) ("Losses") which may be incurred or suffered by you in connection with, or arising from the performance, non-performance or delay in performance by the Fractional Bond Issuer, WiseAlpha Technologies, any WiseAlpha Product Issuer, the Administrator or any issuer of any Investment save where such Losses arise from the fraud, gross negligence or wilful default of GCEN or GCS.
3.3.10 You agree that neither GCEN nor GCS nor any of their respective officers, directors or employees shall under any circumstances be liable to you for loss of profits or goodwill, anticipated savings, or any type of special indirect or consequential loss arising in connection with:
3.3.11 Nothing in clauses 3.3.9 and 3.3.10 of this Agreement shall limit GCEN or GCS’s liability:
3.3.12 If at any time any provision of this Agreement is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such provision shall be deemed to be severed from this Agreement but the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall not be affected or impaired.
3.3.13 GCEN, GCS and their respective officers, directors and employees may rely upon and enforce the terms contained in clauses 3.3.3 to 3.3.13 of this Agreement.
Each time you purchase a Fractional Bond, it will be issued immediately following the closing of the purchase of the Investment that the Fractional Bond Issuer purchases with the proceeds of your Fractional Bond. Purchases of Investments generally close within 56 days unless (1) the selling counterparty declines to complete the trade prior to closing, in which case the Fractional Bond Issuer will release you from your purchase commitment; (2) Investor commitments for the minimum purchase denomination of the related Investment have been received earlier, in which case the issuance of the Fractional Bond(s) to you will close earlier; or (3) the purchase of the related Investment is cancelled by the Fractional Bond Issuer for reasons relating to the operation and integrity of the Platform or if there is a change in the circumstances of the Obligor and the relevant Investment and the Fractional Bond Issuer decides to remove the Investment from the Market Page. In the event that there are excess orders in relation to the aggregate principal amount of the Investment actually purchased, the Fractional Bond Issuer may allocate Fractional Bonds at its discretion amongst the Investors who placed orders for Fractional Bonds linked to that Investment.
Each time you purchase a WiseAlpha Product other than the Fractional Bonds, it will be issued on terms that will be notified to you through the Platform.
5.1.1 The Fractional Bonds are constituted by the Deed Poll and shall have the terms and conditions specified in the Terms and Conditions of the Fractional Bonds, as supplemented by the Final Terms relating to the relevant Investment, which are available for you to review upon request to the Fractional Bond Issuer. The interest rate (or other return), maturity and other terms of the corresponding Investments will be described on the Invest page on the Platform. Accordingly, on each Fractional Bond Periodic Payment Date, the Issuer shall account to the Holders for an amount equivalent to the amounts of interest or other return actually received (and identified as such) by or for the account of the Issuer under the relevant Investment Contract. You understand and acknowledge that the Fractional Bond Issuer may in its sole discretion, at any time and from time to time, vote on any proposed amendments to the underlying Investment. The Fractional Bond Issuer shall be entitled to engage, pay for and rely on the advice or services of any lawyers, accountants, valuers, surveyors or other experts in relation to any Investment.
5.1.2 So far as permitted by applicable laws, regulations and the practice of revenue authorities, all interest earned on your Fractional Bonds will be credited to your account without deducting income tax or corporation tax. It is the responsibility of each Investor to account for any income or corporation tax that may be payable by it. On request by an Investor, the Fractional Bond Issuer will issue a certificate stating the amount of interest earned by the Investor during the previous financial year. The Fractional Bond Issuer shall be entitled to provide to the Irish Revenue Commissioners, HM Revenue & Customs and/or any other revenue authority any and all information requested by such authority relating to payments made to Investors. Upon request the Fractional Bond Issuer will ensure that funds in your account that are not committed to the purchase of Fractional Bonds (and in turn by the Fractional Bond Issuer to Investments) will be transferred to the bank account from which the original monies were transferred. The Fractional Bond Issuer reserves the right to deduct from any such payment a charge to cover the Fractional Bond Issuer’s direct costs of the funds transfer.
Other WiseAlpha Products will be constituted by such terms and conditions as may be listed on the Platform.
WiseAlpha Technologies will charge a Services Fee, which will be deducted from payments under the Fractional Bonds when each interest or other payment is received from the Obligor based on a daily rate as 1/365 of the annual Services Fee. If an Obligor misses an interest or other payment, the Services Fee relating to that payment will not be deducted until that payment has been received. The Services Fee covers WiseAlpha Technologies' role in providing intermediary services.
The Service Fee payable is set out on the Fees Page. If the Service Fee is amended by WiseAlpha Technologies the notification of change will be sent to you by electronic communication prior to the change taking effect. WiseAlpha Technologies reserves the right to solely amend the Service Fee at its absolute discretion.
WiseAlpha Technologies limited will also charge a Sale Fee which will be deducted from proceeds of a sale of any Fractional Bond and will be charged on the principal amount of the Fractional Bond if sold prior to maturity. The Sales Fee payable is set out on the Fees Page. If the Sales Fee is amended by WiseAlpha Technologies the notification of change will be sent to you by electronic communication prior to the change taking effect. WiseAlpha Technologies reserves the right to solely amend the Sales Fee at its absolute discretion.
6.1 You agree that you have no right to, and shall not, make any attempt, directly or through any third party, to collect from the Obligor on your Fractional Bonds or the corresponding Investment.
6.2 YOU UNDERSTAND AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT OBLIGORS MAY DEFAULT ON THEIR PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS UNDER THE INVESTMENTS AND THAT SUCH DEFAULTS WILL REDUCE THE AMOUNTS, IF ANY, YOU MAY RECEIVE UNDER THE TERMS OF ANY FRACTIONAL BONDS YOU HOLD ASSOCIATED WITH SUCH INVESTMENTS. You also agree that the Fractional Bonds are intended to be indebtedness of the Fractional Bond Issuer only.
6.3 You agree that you will not take any position inconsistent with such treatment of the Fractional Bonds for tax, accounting, or other purposes, unless required by law. You acknowledge that you are prepared to bear the risk of loss of your entire purchase price for any WiseAlpha Product that you may purchase.
7.1 You covenant that you will abide by the maximum investment limits, set forth below. You agree to provide any additional documentation reasonably requested by any of the Fractional Bond Issuer, WiseAlpha Technologies and/or any WiseAlpha Product Issuer that may have acceded to this Agreement, as may be required by the securities administrators or regulators of any applicable jurisdiction. You understand that no WiseAlpha Product will be listed on any securities exchange, that there may be no market for any WiseAlpha Product, that any monetisation of Fractional Bonds or other WiseAlpha Product prior to maturity is dependent on the Fractional Bond Issuer’s or the relevant WiseAlpha Product Issuer’s respective ability and willingness to repurchase Fractional Bonds or other WiseAlpha Product and that purchasers of Fractional Bonds and/or other WiseAlpha Products should be prepared to hold the Fractional Bonds and/or WiseAlpha Products they purchase until they mature or are redeemed prior to their stated maturity.
7.2 In addition, you represent and warrant to each of the Fractional Bond Issuer, WiseAlpha Technologies and/or any WiseAlpha Product Issuer that has acceded to this Agreement, as of the date of this Agreement and as of any date that you commit to purchase any WiseAlpha Product, that:

9.2 Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the obligations of the Issuer arising hereunder or in respect of the Fractional Bonds are limited recourse obligations payable solely from the sums of principal, interest, other return and additional amounts (if any) actually received (and identified as such) in relation to the relevant Investment pursuant to the related Investment Contract (the "Assets"). Following realisation of the Assets and the application of the proceeds thereof, any claims of the Holders (and the obligations of the Issuer) shall be extinguished. Each Holder agrees that it will not petition a court, or take any action or commence any proceedings for, the liquidation or the winding-up of, or the appointment of an examiner to, the Issuer or any other bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings with respect to the Issuer. The provisions of this Clause 9.2 shall survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement and the redemption of the Fractional Bonds.
PAYMENT ON THE FRACTIONAL BONDS, IF ANY, DEPENDS ENTIRELY ON THE RECEIPT OF PAYMENTS BY THE FRACTIONAL BOND ISSUER IN RESPECT OF THE CORRESPONDING INVESTMENT. THE FRACTIONAL BOND ISSUER DOES NOT WARRANT OR GUARANTEE IN ANY MANNER THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE ALL OR ANY PORTION OF THE PRINCIPAL OR INTEREST (OR OTHER RETURN) YOU EXPECT TO RECEIVE ON ANY FRACTIONAL BOND OR REALIZE ANY PARTICULAR OR EXPECTED RATE OF RETURN. THE AMOUNT YOU RECEIVE ON YOUR FRACTIONAL BONDS, IF ANY, IS SPECIFICALLY RESTRICTED TO PAYMENTS MADE BY THE FRACTIONAL BOND ISSUER EQUAL TO THE PAYMENTS MADE BY THE OBLIGOR (AND RECEIVED BY THE FRACTIONAL BOND ISSUER) UNDER THE RELATED INVESTMENT TO WHICH YOU COMMITTED NET OF ANY FEES AND EXPENSES AS DESCRIBED ABOVE. THE FRACTIONAL BOND ISSUER DOES NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS AS TO AN OBLIGOR’S ABILITY TO PAY AND DOES NOT ACT AS A GUARANTOR OF ANY CORRESPONDING INVESTMENT PAYMENT OR PAYMENTS BY ANY OBLIGOR.
10.1 You acknowledge and agree that the purchase and sale of the WiseAlpha Products pursuant to this Agreement is an arms-length transaction between you and the Fractional Bond Issuer or such other WiseAlpha Product Issuer as may have acceded to this Agreement, as applicable. In connection with the purchase and sale of any WiseAlpha Product, none of the Fractional Bond Issuer, WiseAlpha Technologies or any other WiseAlpha Product Issuer is acting as your agent or fiduciary.
