We will notify you of any changes to the Return Rate via the AQRU App or AQRU Website. Unless indicated otherwise, any new Return Rate shall apply on the next calendar day following the notification.
- Expected rates. The Return Rates are expected rates and are forward-looking statements that reflect current expectations regarding future events and the performance of the third party yield providers and decentralised exchanges. Achieving the Return Rates involve significant risks and uncertainties, should not be read as guarantees of future performance or results and will not necessarily be accurate indications of whether or not such performance or results will be achieved. Forward-looking statements are in no way a form of advice, solicitation or offering of or for the Auto AQRU services and should not be interpreted as such.

11. Risk Disclosures
- Volatility. Crypto Currencies are more volatile relative to most fiat currencies and other assets and this unpredictability of their price may result in significant loss over a short period of time. We are not responsible for the Crypto Currencies market, and we make no representations or warranties concerning the real or perceived value of any Crypto Currencies, and the quality, suitability, usefulness, accuracy, or completeness of any data provided by us.
