NO COPYING. This agreement may not be forwarded or distributed to any other person and may not be reproduced in any manner whatsoever. Any forwarding, distribution or reproduction of this agreement in whole or in part is unauthorized.
CANCELLATION. Tezos.community reserves the right to refuse or cancel your delegation or bond pool participation and/or suspend or terminate your account at any time in its sole discretion.
NO EXCHANGE. Tezos.community is a delegation service and related bond pool only. Tezos.community is not an exchange. Tezos.community provides software and a web-based platform for XTZ delegation, “baking” and related bond pool. Tezos.community is not a direct, private seller of virtual currency. As such, we do not buy or sell any currency, virtual or otherwise. We do not provide any method of purchasing, selling, or trading any type of blockchain coins or tokens. We also do not give any financial advice or recommendations. Our system is on a closed loop. This means we do not have any means of receiving or transferring tokens from a client to a third party or vice versa. Reimbursements can only be sent to the original wallet from which transactions or baking rights originated. Token ownership transfer happens upon transfer of XTZ tokens from Tezos.Community to the client. If you wish to transmit crypto-tokens to a third party, you must send directly from your personal wallet or use some other method, and Tezos.Community takes no responsibility and expressly disclaims any responsibility, obligation and/or liability relating to such activity.
NO FINANCIAL ADVICE PROVIDED; NO FIDUCIARY DUTY. You agree that you are solely responsible for all purchases, orders, actions (or the lack thereof), and decisions as related to the Services and your use of the Site. Although the Site may provide data, information or content provided by other parties, you should not construe any such information or content as tax, legal, financial, or investment advice. You hereby warrant and acknowledge that your use of the Site and /or the Services is solely your responsibility. Tezos.Community has no special relationship with or fiduciary duty to you. You agree and acknowledge that you are solely responsible for conducting a full and diligent review of any and all legal, accounting, regulatory or tax related implications that may result from your use of the Services. We recommend that you consult with a licensed legal and financial professional prior to accessing the Site or utilizing the Services.
NO SECURITY/NO RELIANCE. This document does not constitute investment advice, counsel or solicitation for investment in any security and shall not be construed in that way. This agreement and the Tezos.Community services do not constitute or form part of, and should not be construed as, any offer for sale or subscription of, or any invitation to offer to buy or subscribe for, any securities in any form. You acknowledge that regulatory authorities of certain countries may at some later date take the position that some aspect of the Tezos.Community services constitutes a form of a security. In this event, Tezos.Community expressly disclaims any and all responsibility and liability arising therefrom. Further, Tezos.Community 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 document, (ii) any error, omission or inaccuracy in any such information or (iii) any action resulting therefrom.
ACCREDITED INVESTORS ONLY. Participation on the Tezos.Community bond pool is strictly limited to accredited investors. By entering in this agreement, you represent and confirm that you are an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933 Rule 501. We do not, and cannot, guarantee that any Investor is actually an Accredited Investor (as defined, as amended), or that any content or information provided on this Site is true, correct, complete or viable.
RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH UNCERTAIN REGULATIONS AND ENFORCEMENT ACTIONS. The regulatory status of XTZ and distributed ledger technology is unclear or unsettled in many jurisdictions. It is difficult to predict how or whether regulatory agencies may apply existing or future law or regulation with respect to such technology and its applications. 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 Tezos and XTZ. By participating in the Tezos.Community services, you expressly assume all such related risks.
TEZOS LAWSUITS. You acknowledge and warrant that you are aware that Dynamic Ledger Technologies, the Tezos Foundation and related entities have been to date the subject of multiple lawsuits, including claims of investor fraud, securities fraud and similar allegations. Tezos.Community takes no position relative to such litigation and related claims, and disclaims any knowledge, responsibility or other involvement with such claims, now or in the future.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY: We retain all right, title and interest in all of our intellectual property, including inventions, discoveries, processes, marks, methods, compositions, formulae, techniques, information and data, whether or not patentable, copyrightable or protectable in trademark, and any trademarks, copyrights or patents based thereon. You may not use any of our intellectual property for any reason, except with our express, prior, written consent. All content included on the Tezos.Community Website and ecosystem, including associated products and services, such as, but not limited to, text, graphics, logos, images, source code, as well as the compilation thereof, and any software used on the Website is the property of the Company.
SECURITY: You will implement reasonable and appropriate measures designed to secure access to (i) any device associated with the email address associated with your account, (ii) private keys required to access any relevant cryptocurrency address, and (iii) your username, password and any other login or identifying credentials. In case you suspect a security breach in any of the above mentioned, you shall inform us immediately, so we can take measures to secure your account.
TOKENS AND SYSTEMS AS A WHOLE. In the event that you are no longer in possession of any device associated with your account or are not able to provide your login or identifying credentials, we may, in our sole discretion, and only if we are able, grant access to your account to any party providing additional credentials to us. We explicitly reserve the right to determine the additional credentials required, which may include, without limitation, a sworn, notarized statement of identity.
RISK OF LOSING ACCESS TO TOKENS DUE TO LOSS OF PRIVATE KEY(S), CUSTODIAL ERROR OR PURCHASER ERROR. A private key, or a combination of private keys, is necessary to control and dispose of XTZ stored in your digital wallet or vault. Accordingly, loss of requisite private key(s) associated with your digital wallet or vault 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 digital wallet or vault service you use, may be able to misappropriate your Tokens. Any errors or malfunctions caused by or otherwise related to the digital wallet or vault you choose to receive and store Tokens, including your own failure to properly maintain or use such digital wallet or vault, may also result in the loss of your Tokens. Additionally, your failure to follow precisely the procedures for buying and receiving Tokens, including, for instance, if you provide the wrong address for receiving Tokens, may result in the loss of your Tokens. Tezos.Community takes no responsibility for loss or compromise of private keys, custodial error or purchaser error and expressly disclaims any responsibility in this regard.
RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH THE TEZOS PROTOCOL. Because XTZ and related Ecosystem are based on the Tezos protocol, any malfunction, breakdown or abandonment of the Tezos platform may have a material adverse effect on the Ecosystem or XTZ. Moreover, advances in cryptography, or technical advances such as the development of quantum computing, could present risks to Tokens and the Ecosystem, including the utility of Tokens for obtaining Services, by rendering ineffective the cryptographic consensus mechanism that underpins the Tezos protocol. Tezos.community takes no responsibility for such risks and expressly disclaims same.
RISK OF HACKING AND SECURITY WEAKNESSES. Hackers or other malicious groups or organizations may attempt to interfere with the Tezos Ecosystem, Tezos.Community or XTZ in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, malware attacks, denial of service attacks, consensus-based attacks, Sybil attacks, smurfing and spoofing. Furthermore, because the Tezos Ecosystem 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 Ecosystem, which could negatively affect the Ecosystem and XTZ, including XTZ’s utility for using the Ecosystem. Tezos.Community takes no responsibility for and expressly disclaims responsibility for such attacks/security weaknesses. Further, Tezos.community shall bear no liability whatsoever, for any damage or interruptions caused by any computer viruses, spyware, scareware, Trojan horses, worms or other malware that may affect your computer or other equipment, or any phishing, spoofing or other attack.
ERRORS/CHANGES. The information, software, services included in or available through the Tezos.Community Website may include inaccuracies and/or typographical errors. Changes are periodically added to the information herein. Company may make improvements and/or changes in the Website at any time. Company makes no representations about the suitability, reliability, availability, timeliness, and accuracy of XTZ, the Website, information, software, services and related graphics contained on the Website for any purpose.
RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH MARKETS FOR XTZ. XTZ are intended to be used solely on the Ecosystem, and Company will not support or otherwise facilitate any secondary trading or external valuation of Tokens.
RISK OF UNINSURED LOSSES. Unlike bank accounts or accounts at financial institutions, Tokens are uninsured unless you specifically obtain your own private insurance to insure them. Thus, in the event of loss or loss of utility value, there is no public insurer or private insurance arranged by us, to offer recourse to you. Tezos.community takes no responsibility in this regard and expressly disclaims same. You understand and acknowledge that risk of loss of XTZ, passes from the Company to You.
ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION PRIVACY ACT NOTICE (18 U.S.C. §§ 2701-2711). Though Tezos.Community takes security, privacy and appropriate confidentiality very seriously, and while we take all reasonable efforts to secure data and maintain the confidentiality of the same, Tezos.Community makes no guarantee of confidentiality or privacy of any communication or information transmitted on the site or any website linked to the site. We will never share personal information unless required by law or court order; furthermore, we will never sell, rent or otherwise provide access to customer data to any third-party. Nevertheless, we shall not be liable for the privacy of email addresses, registration and identification information, communications, confidential or trade-secret information, or any other Content stored on Tezos.Community equipment, transmitted over networks accessed by the Site, or otherwise connected with your use of the Service.
AML AND KYC POLICY. You agree to assist the Company in compliance with “AML” (anti-money laundering) and “KYC” (know your customer) regulations, including agreeing to provide information upon request relative to such compliance efforts. As part of our commitment to the prevention of money laundering, Company will not tolerate bond pool participants abusing the bond pool for such matters. If Company suspects any client is abusing the Tezos.Community bond pool for the purposes of money laundering, Company reserves the right to freeze your XTZ and/or reimbursements. Company reserves the right to report any suspicious activities to the police or relevant authorities without the client's knowledge.
Tezos.community reserves the right to request documentation, including but not limited to Know-Your-Customer / Anti-Money Laundering (AML) applications, at any time, including prior to activating your account, and including in order to comply with applicable law or regulation in connection with the bond pool. We may refuse you access to the Ecosystem and Website should it have doubts as to validity, authenticity and genuineness of any documents provided by you. You agree to provide us with such information promptly upon request, and you acknowledge that we may refuse participation in the bond pool until you provide such requested information
TAXES: Any tax obligations are solely your responsibility and you agree that Tezos.Community has no responsibility and undertakes no obligation whatsoever relative to any tax related matter, including but not limited to tax reporting, filing or advice. Any returns paid pursuant to this agreement are exclusive of any potentially applicable taxes. You are solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes may apply to any returns, reimbursements or any other payments made relative to this agreement and the Tezos.Community bond pool. For example, it is your sole responsibility to withhold, collect, report and remit any potentially applicable taxes to appropriate tax authorities, and Tezos.Community takes no responsibility of any sort in this regard.
NOTICES: We may provide any notice to you under this Agreement by: (i) posting a notice on the Website; or (ii) sending an email to the email address that is associated with your account if you have provided one. Notices we provide by posting on the Website will be effective upon posting and notices we provide by email will be effective when we send the email.

CA, before a single arbitrator. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those Rules. Judgment on the Award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
1. The parties agree that any and all disputes, claims or controversies arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall first be submitted to JAMS, or its successor, for mediation, and if the matter is not resolved through mediation, then it shall be submitted to JAMS, or its successor, for final and binding arbitration pursuant to the clause set forth in Paragraph 5 below.

5. Either party may initiate arbitration with respect to the matters submitted to mediation by filing a written demand for arbitration at any time following the initial mediation session or at any time following 45 days from the date of filing the written request for mediation, whichever occurs first ("Earliest Initiation Date").
