We shall not be liable for any losses you incur as a result of any changes to the Services or any modification, suspension, or termination of your access to all or any portion of the Site or the Services for any reason.
In addition to any other provision that by law or by its nature should survive, the following portions of these Terms will survive any termination of your access to the Site or the Services, regardless of the reasons for its expiration or termination: Sections 7 to 15.
10 ASSUMPTIONS OF RISKS
10.1 By using the Services or interacting with the Site in any way, you represent and warrant that you are aware of the inherent risks associated with cryptographic systems and blockchain-based networks; Digital Assets, including the usage and complexities of native Digital Assets such as Ethereum (ETH); Ethereum blockchain-based tokens, and systems that interact with blockchain-based networks. Neither the Company nor RUFU owns or manages any of the Supported Contracts, the underlying software that forms blockchain networks or the smart contracts that are deployed. In general, the software that powers blockchain networks, including the Ethereum blockchain, is open source, which means that anybody can use, copy, change, and distribute it. By using the Services, you acknowledge and agree (a) that the Company is not responsible for the operation of the software and networks that underpin the Services, (b) that there is no guarantee of the functionality, security, or availability of that software and networks, and (c) that the underlying networks are subject to sudden changes in operating rules, known colloquially as "forks," which may materially affect the Services. Public/private key cryptography is used in blockchain networks. You are solely responsible for safeguarding your private key (s) that will prevent you from accessing Digital Assets on the Ethereum blockchain or any other blockchain-based network indefinitely and irrevocably. Your Digital Assets will not be recoverable or protected by the Company or any other person or entity. If you lose your private key(s), you will be unable to move your Digital Assets to another blockchain address or wallet. If this happens, you will be unable to derive any value or utility from the Digital Assets that you may own.
10.2 One or more governmental inquiries or regulatory actions may have an impact on the Services and your Digital Assets, limiting the Company's ability to continue to make available its proprietary software and, as a result, limiting your ability to access or use the Services.
10.3 You acknowledge and understand that cryptography is a rapidly evolving field, with advances in code-cracking and other technological advancements, such as the development of quantum computers, that may pose risks to Digital Assets and Services, and may result in theft or loss of your Digital Assets. To the greatest degree practicable, we aim to update the software associated with the Services to integrate additional security measures required to address threats posed by technical breakthroughs, but this intention does not guarantee or otherwise secure the Services' full security.
10.4 You acknowledge that the Ethereum blockchain is still in development, which poses technological and security concerns when using the Services, as well as ambiguity about Digital Assets and transactions involving them. You acknowledge that the cost of transacting on the Ethereum blockchain is changeable and may increase at any time, affecting any actions taking place on the Ethereum blockchain and potentially resulting in price changes or increased fees when using the Services.
10.5 You acknowledge that the Services may contain bugs and that you are solely responsible for analysing any code provided by the Services or Site. This warning, together with others provided by the Company in these Terms, does not constitute or imply an ongoing obligation to notify you of all potential dangers associated with using the Services or accessing the Site.
10.6 Although we intend to provide accurate and timely information on the Site and during your use of the Services, the Site and other information available during your use of the Services may not always be entirely accurate, complete, or current, and may also contain technical inaccuracies or typographical errors. To continue to offer you the most complete and accurate information possible, information may be altered or updated without notice from time to time, including information about our policies. As a result, you should check any information before relying on it, and any decisions you make based on information on the Site or as part of the Services are solely your responsibility.No warranty is made as to the accuracy, completeness, or suitability of any price information given over the Site or otherwise when utilising the Services for any particular purpose. Prices and pricing information may be greater or lower than prices accessible on similar service platforms.
10.7 To recognise the inherent hazards, including those stated above, any usage or contact with the Services necessitates a thorough understanding of applied cryptography and computer science. You represent and warrant that you have the necessary knowledge and abilities. Any reference to a type of Digital Asset on the Site or otherwise while using the Services does not imply our approval or disapproval of the technology on which the Digital Asset is based, and should not be used as a substitute for your understanding of the risks associated with each type of Digital Asset.
10.8 The use of the Services, particularly for the exchange of Digital Assets and the execution of Contracts, may involve financial risk. Contracts and digital assets are highly experimental, hazardous, and volatile. Transactions made in connection with the Services are irreversible and final, with no returns. You understand and agree that you will access and use the Site and Services at your own risk. The danger of loss when transacting Digital Assets through Contracts might be significant. As a result, you should carefully examine whether such transactions are appropriate for you given your circumstances and financial resources. By utilising the Services, you represent and warrant that you have been, are, and will continue to be exclusively responsible for conducting independent appraisals and investigations into the risks of a particular DLC transaction. You represent that you have adequate information, market acumen, professional counsel, and experience to assess the merits and hazards of any transaction involving the Services. You assume full responsibility for the consequences of using the Services, including the possibility of losing access to your Digital Assets indefinitely. You are solely responsible for all transaction decisions. Regardless of anything in these Terms, we assume no responsibility for, and will not be liable to you in connection with, your use of the Services.
10.9 You acknowledge and fully understand that Contracts, including Supported Contracts, are inherently dangerous by definition, and that participation in Contracts, including Supported Contracts, may result in the loss of the entire investment. Furthermore, when leverage and/or derivative products are employed, such risks and undesirable outcomes may be amplified, and we may, at any time and our sole discretion, choose to suspend or terminate our support of any or all Supported Contracts.
10.10 We must follow Applicable Law, which may require us to take action or divulge information that is not in your best interests if requested by government entities.
10.11 You acknowledge that the Service is still in development, which introduces technological, transactional, and other risks when utilising the Services. These risks include, among other things, delays in trades, withdrawals, and deposits as a result of the operator of the Services' servers going offline; incorrect display of information on the Site as a result of server errors; and transactions using the Services being rolled back as a result of server errors. You recognise that these risks may have a major impact on your transactions using the Services, resulting in, for example, failure to perform transactions at your specified pricing or at all.
10.12 THE COMPANY WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY LOSS AND TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR, AND WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR, ANY USE OF THE SERVICES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO: (I) USER ERROR SUCH AS FORGOTTEN PASSWORDS, INCORRECTLY CONSTRUCTED TRANSACTIONS, OR MISTYPED WALLET ADDRESSES;(II)SERVER FAILURE OR DATA LOSS; (III) CRYPTOCURRENCY WALLETS OR CORRUPT FILES; (IV) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO SERVICES; OR (V) ANY THIRD-PARTY ACTIVITIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE USE OF VIRUSES, PHISHING, BRUTE-FORCING OR OTHER MEANS OF ATTACK AGAINST ANY BLOCKCHAIN NETWORK UNDERLYING THE SERVICES.
10.13 You hereby assume and agree that the Company will bear no obligation or liability for the risks outlined in this Section 10. You hereby irrevocably waive, release, and dismiss all claims against the Company, its affiliates, and their respective shareholders, members, directors, officers, employees, agents, representatives, suppliers, and contractors, whether known or unknown to you.
You will defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the Company, RUFU, and any of their affiliates, as well as their respective stockholders, members, directors, officers, managers, employees, attorneys, agents, representatives, suppliers, and contractors (collectively, "Indemnified Parties"), from any claim, demand, lawsuit, action, proceeding, investigation, liability, damage, loss, cost, or expense, including reasonable attorneys' fees, arising from any claim, demand, lawsuit, action, proceeding, investigation (a) your use of, or conduct in connection with, the Site or the Services (including, without limitation, the Service); (b) Digital Assets associated with your Digital Asset wallet address; (c) any feedback you provide to the Company, if any, regarding the Site or the Services; (d) your violation of these Terms; or (e) your infringement or misappropriation of any other person's or entity's rights. If you are obligated to indemnify any Indemnified Party, the Company (or, at its discretion, the applicable Indemnified Party) will have the right to control any action or proceeding and to determine whether the Company wishes to settle, and if so, on what terms, and you agree to cooperate with the Company in the defence.

THE DAMAGE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE COMPANY AND YOU.
14 DISPUTE RESOLUTION & ARBITRATION
14.1 Disputes must be arbitrated. We each agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or their breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity, or our use of the Services (collectively, "Disputes") will be resolved solely through binding, individual arbitration, rather than through a class, representative, or consolidated action or proceeding. You and The Company agree that the Panama Arbitration Law controls the interpretation and enforcement of these Terms and that you and The Company each waive the right to a jury trial or to join a class action. This arbitration clause will remain in effect even if these Terms are terminated.

14.3 Arbitration Procedures and Arbitration Rules JAMS shall conduct the arbitration by the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the "JAMS Rules") in effect at the time unless changed by these Terms. The JAMS Rules can be found at https://www.jamsadr.com/. A party who intends to initiate arbitration must file a written Demand for Arbitration with JAMS and provide notice to the other party by the JAMS Rules. JAMS has a form Demand for Arbitration available at https://www.jamsadr.com/.
The parties agree that the arbitrator will have sole authority to rule on all issues concerning the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, and scope of this arbitration agreement.
14.4 Arbitration Fees. The payment of all filing, administration, and arbitration fees shall be controlled by the JAMS Rules, and we will not seek to recover the administration and arbitrator fees we are obligated to pay unless the arbitrator considers your Dispute frivolous. If we win in arbitration, we will pay all of our attorneys' fees and costs and will not seek reimbursement from you. If you win in arbitration, you will be awarded attorneys' fees and expenses to the extent permitted by Applicable Law.
14.5 Declaratory and injunctive relief Except as provided in Section 14.2 above, the arbitrator shall decide all issues of liability on the merits of any claim asserted by either party and may grant declaratory or injunctive relief only in favour of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent required to provide relief warranted by that party's claim. If you or we win a claim and seek public injunctive relief (that is, injunctive relief with the primary purpose and effect of prohibiting unlawful acts that threaten future harm to the public), the entitlement to and extent of such relief must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction, not in arbitration. The parties agree that any litigation for public injunctive relief will stay pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration.
14.6 Severability. Except for any of the provisions in Section 15.6 of these Terms ("Class Action Waiver"), if an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction rules that any portion of these Terms is defective or unenforceable, the other sections of these Terms will remain in effect.
