Trading cryptocurrency, cryptographic tokens and other digital rights or assets (“ Tokens ”), and use of other Services provided by Dolomite, involves significant risks and potential for financial losses, including without limitation the following:
- The features, functions, characteristics, operation, use and other properties of any Token (“ Token Properties ”) and the software, networks, protocols, systems, and other technology (including, if applicable, any blockchain) (“ Underlying Technology ”) used to administer, create, issue, transfer, cancel, use or transact in any Token may be complex, technical or difficult to understand or evaluate.
- Any Token and its Underlying Technology may be vulnerable to attacks on the security, integrity or operation of the Token or its Underlying Technology (“Attacks”), including Attacks using computing power sufficient to overwhelm the normal operation of a blockchain or other Underlying Technology.
- Any Token, Token Properties or Underlying Technology may change or otherwise cease to operate as expected due to a change made to the Underlying Technology, a change made using features or functions built into the Underlying Technology or a change resulting from an Attack. These changes may include, without limitation, a “fork,” or “rollback” of a Token or blockchain.
- Any Token may be cancelled, lost or double spent, or otherwise lose all or most of their value, due to forks, rollbacks, Attacks, changes to Token Properties or failure of the Token to operate as intended.
- Dolomite may suspend or cease to support the transfer, storage or trading of any Token at any time at Dolomite’s discretion. Other exchanges and service providers may do the same.
- Dolomite may suspend or reject your transaction requests, suspend or cease support for Tokens, or suspend or terminate your access to the Services to comply with applicable laws or regulations or an order from law enforcement or other governmental authority, for other reasons as specified in these Terms or otherwise at Dolomite’s discretion.
- Any Token may decrease in value or lose all of its value due to various factors including discovery of wrongful conduct, market manipulation, changes to Token Properties or perceived value of Token Properties, Attacks, suspension or cessation of support for a Token by Dolomite or other exchanges or service providers, and other factors outside the control of Dolomite.
- Any Token may decrease in value or lose all of its value due to legislative or regulatory activity, or other government action. Government regulation of Tokens is unsettled and rapidly evolving.
- Any Token may be lost if sent to the wrong address (for example but without limitation, if the address is improperly formatted, contains errors, or is intended to be used for a different type of Token).
- You may be prevented from sending a transaction request, or your transaction request or email may not be received by Dolomite or the Services, due to hardware, software or services issues (including, without limitation, Internet and other network connectivity issues).
- Your transaction request or email to Dolomite or the Services may be lost, intercepted or altered during transmission.
- Unauthorized third parties may access or use your Dolomite Account and effect transactions without your knowledge or authorization, whether by obtaining the password to your Dolomite Account, obtaining control over another device or account used by you in connection with any enhanced security measures enabled for your account, or by other methods.
The risks described in this Section 4 may result in loss of Tokens, decrease in or loss of all value for Tokens, inability to access or transfer Tokens, inability to trade Tokens, inability to receive financial benefits available to other Token holders, and other financial losses to you. You hereby assume, and agree that Dolomite will have no responsibility or liability for such risks. You hereby irrevocably waive, release and discharge any and all claims, whether known or unknown to you, against Dolomite, its Affiliates and their respective shareholders, members, directors, officers, employees, agents and representatives related to any of the risks set forth herein. You waive application of Section 1542 of the Civil Code of the State of California, or any similar statute or law of any other jurisdiction. Section 1542 reads as follows: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”
You represent and warrant that you have: (a) the necessary technical expertise and ability to review and evaluate the security, integrity and operation of any Tokens that you decide to acquire or trade; and (b) the knowledge, experience, understanding, professional advice and information to make your own evaluation of the merits and risks of any Token or trade. You accept the risk of trading Tokens by using the Services, and are responsible for conducting your own independent analysis of the risks specific to the Tokens and the Services. You should not acquire or trade any Tokens unless you have sufficient financial resources and can afford to lose all value of the Tokens.
Dolomite’s decision to support transfer, storage, or trading of any particular Token does not indicate Dolomite’s approval or disapproval of the Token or the integrity, security or operation of the Token or its Underlying Technology. The risks associated with Tokens and trading Tokens apply notwithstanding Dolomite’s decision to support a particular Token. Dolomite does not provide trading advice and does not have any fiduciary duty to you or any other user and does not make any warranty about the suitability of any Token for trading or ownership by you.
