Please read these Terms of Service (the “Terms”) and our Privacy Policy (available at https://www.tanssi.network/privacy-policy) (“Privacy Policy”) carefully because they govern your use of the website located at https://www.tanssi.network (the “Site”), the application chain solution and all related tools and resources accessible via the Site (the “Appchain Solution”) and the underlying application chain infrastructure protocol (the “Protocol”) offered by the Tanssi Foundation, a Cayman Foundation (“Tanssi Foundation”). To make these Terms easier to read, the Site, Appchain Solution, and the Protocol are collectively called the “Services.”

If we do, we will let you know by posting the updated Terms on the Site and/or may also send other communications. It is important that you review the Terms whenever we update them or you use the Services. If you continue to use the Services after we have posted updated Terms, it means that you accept and agree to the changes. If you do not agree to be bound by the changes, you may not use the Services anymore. Because our Services are evolving over time, we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services, at any time, and without notice, at our sole discretion.

  4. Who May Use the Services?

    • (b) Compliance.  The Services are only available to users in certain jurisdictions who can use the Services as permitted under applicable law. You certify that you will comply with all applicable laws (e.g., local, state, federal and other laws) when using the Services. You are solely responsible for ensuring that your access and use of the Services in the country, territory, or jurisdiction where you reside does not violate any applicable laws. You must not use any software or networking techniques, including use of a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to modify your internet protocol address or otherwise circumvent or attempt to circumvent this prohibition. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor the locations from which our Services are accessed. Furthermore, we reserve the right, at any time, in our sole discretion, to block access to the Services, in whole or in part, from any geographic location, IP addresses, and unique device identifiers, or to any user who we believe is in breach of these Terms.

  5. About the Services. 

    • (a) License. Subject to your compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Tanssi Foundation hereby grants you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, license, with no right to sub-license, to use the Services for your internal business purposes.

    • (b) You may participate in the Services by linking your digital wallet(s) on supported bridge extensions, which allows you to purchase, store, and engage in transactions using supported digital assets.  Before purchasing a unique digital asset, we will ask you to download a supported electronic wallet extension and connect and unlock your digital wallets with that extension. Once you submit an order to purchase a unique digital asset, your order is passed on to the applicable extension, which completes the transaction on your behalf.

    • (c) THE TANSSI FOUNDATION IS NOT A BROKER, FINANCIAL INSTITUTION, OR CREDITOR. THE TANSSI FOUNDATION PROVIDES AN ADMINISTRATIVE PLATFORM ONLY. THE TANSSI FOUNDATION FACILITATES TRANSACTIONS BETWEEN A BUYER AND SELLER BUT IS NOT A PARTY TO ANY AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE BUYER AND SELLER OF DIGITAL ASSETS.

    • (d) YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT OUR SERVICES ALLOW USERS, INCLUDING THIRD-PARTY USERS, TO BUILD DECENTRALIZED APPLICATIONS OR POST OTHER CONTENT AND THAT YOU MAY INTERACT WITH SUCH THIRD PARTY DECENTRALIZED APPLICATIONS OR CONTENT VIA THE SERVICES, WHICH THE TANSSI FOUNDATION DOES NOT ENDORSE, PROVIDE, OR PROMOTE. YOU BEAR FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR VERIFYING THE LEGITIMACY AND AUTHENTICITY OF ASSETS YOU PURCHASE OR INTERACT WITH THROUGH THE PLATFORM. NOTWITHSTANDING INDICATORS AND MESSAGES THAT SUGGEST VERIFICATION, THE TANSSI FOUNDATION MAKES NO CLAIMS ABOUT THE LEGITIMACY OR AUTHENTICITY OF ASSETS ON THE SITE AND/OR APPCHAIN SOLUTION.

    • (e) Transactions Are Conducted on the Blockchain. The Tanssi Foundation does not buy, sell, or take custody or possession of any digital assets, nor does it act as an agent or custodian for any user of the Services. If you elect to buy any digital asset, any transactions that you engage in will be conducted solely through the blockchain network governing the digital asset. You will be required to make or receive payments exclusively through the digital wallet that you have connected to the Services. We will have no insight into or control over these payments, nor do we have the ability to reverse any payments or transactions. Accordingly, we will have no liability to you or to any third party for any claims or damages that may arise as a result of any transactions that you engage in via the Services.

    • (f) Fees.   You agree to pay any applicable fees, including Gas Fees and hosting fees as applicable, in connection with transactions on the Site. “Gas Fees” mean the fees that fund the network of computers that run the decentralized blockchain network, meaning that you will need to pay a Gas Fee for each transaction that occurs via the blockchain network.

    • (g) Taxes. You are solely responsible for all costs incurred by you in using the Services, and for determining, collecting, reporting, and paying all applicable Taxes that you may be required by law to collect and remit to any governmental or regulatory agencies.  As used herein, “Taxes” means the taxes, duties, levies, tariffs, and other charges imposed by any federal, state, multinational or local governmental or regulatory authority.  You are solely responsible for maintaining all relevant Tax records and complying with any reporting requirements you may have as related to our Services. You are further solely responsible for independently maintaining the accuracy of any record submitted to any tax authority including any information derived from the Services. We reserve the right to report any activity occurring using the Services to relevant tax authorities as required under applicable law.

    • (h) Suspension or Termination.  We may suspend or terminate your access to the Services at any time in connection with any transaction as required by applicable law, any governmental authority, or if we, in our sole and reasonable discretion, determine you are violating these Terms or the terms of any third-party service provider.  Such suspension or termination shall not constitute a breach of these Terms by the Tanssi Foundation. In accordance with its anti-money laundering, anti-terrorism, anti-fraud, and other compliance policies and practices, the Tanssi Foundation may impose reasonable limitations and controls on the ability of you or any beneficiary to utilize the Services. Such limitations may include, where good cause exists, rejecting transaction requests, freezing funds, or otherwise restricting you from using the Services.

  6. Feedback. We appreciate feedback, comments, ideas, proposals and suggestions for improvements to the Services (“Feedback”). If you choose to submit Feedback, you agree that we are free to use it without any restriction or compensation to you.

  7. Your Content. 

    • (a) Posting Content. Our Services may allow you to store or share content such as text (in posts or communications with others), files, documents, graphics, images, music, software, audio and video. Anything (other than Feedback) that you post or otherwise make available through the Services is referred to as “User Content”. The Tanssi Foundation does not claim any ownership rights in any User Content and nothing in these Terms will be deemed to restrict any rights that you may have to your User Content.

    • (b) Permissions to Your User Content. By making any User Content available through the Services you hereby grant to the Tanssi Foundation a non-exclusive, transferable, worldwide, royalty-free license, with the right to sublicense, to use, copy, modify, create derivative works based upon, distribute, publicly display, and publicly perform your User Content in connection with operating and providing the Services.

    • (d) Removal of User Content. You can remove your User Content by specifically deleting it. You should know that in certain instances, some of your User Content (such as posts or comments you make) may not be completely removed and copies of your User Content may continue to exist on the Services.

  11. Warranty Disclaimers.  THE SERVICES, ANY CONTENT CONTAINED THEREIN, ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. THE TANSSI FOUNDATION (AND ITS SUPPLIERS) MAKE NO WARRANTY THAT THE SERVICES (INCLUDING ANY MATERIAL, INFORMATION, OR CONTENT THEREIN): (I) WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS; (II) WILL BE AVAILABLE ON AN UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE BASIS; (III) WILL BE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS: OR (IV) WILL BE ACCURATE, RELIABLE, COMPLETE, LEGAL, OR SAFE.

WE FURTHER EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY IN CONNECTION WITH THIRD PARTY SERVICES. NOTHING HEREIN NOR ANY USE OF OUR SERVICES IN CONNECTION WITH THIRD PARTY SERVICES CONSTITUTES OUR ENDORSEMENT, RECOMMENDATION, OR ANY OTHER AFFILIATION OF OR WITH ANY THIRD PARTY SERVICES. 

    • THE TANSSI FOUNDATION CANNOT GUARANTEE THE SECURITY OF ANY DATA THAT YOU DISCLOSE ONLINE. YOU ACCEPT THE INHERENT SECURITY RISKS OF PROVIDING INFORMATION AND DEALING ONLINE OVER THE INTERNET AND WILL NOT HOLD US RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY BREACH OF SECURITY.

    • THE SERVICES MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE DUE TO ANY NUMBER OF FACTORS INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, PERIODIC SYSTEM MAINTENANCE, SCHEDULED OR UNSCHEDULED, ACTS OF GOD, UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, VIRUSES, DENIAL OF SERVICE OR OTHER ATTACKS, TECHNICAL FAILURE OF THE SERVICES AND/OR TELECOMMUNICATIONS INFRASTRUCTURE OR DISRUPTION, AND THEREFORE WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY REGARDING THE USE AND/OR AVAILABILITY, ACCESSIBILITY, SECURITY, OR PERFORMANCE OF THE SERVICES CAUSED BY SUCH FACTORS. WE DO NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES AGAINST THE POSSIBILITY OF DELETION, MISDELIVERY, OR FAILURE TO STORE COMMUNICATIONS, PERSONALIZED SETTINGS OR OTHER DATA.

    • THE TANSSI FOUNDATION 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 LOSSES, DAMAGES, OR CLAIMS ARISING FROM: (I) USER ERROR SUCH AS FORGOTTEN PASSWORDS, INCORRECTLY CONSTRUCTED TRANSACTIONS, OR MISTYPED WALLET ADDRESSES; (II) SERVER FAILURE OR DATA LOSS; (III) BLOCKCHAIN NETWORKS, DIGITAL WALLETS, OR CORRUPT FILES; (IV) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO SERVICES; OR (V) ANY THIRD PARTY ACTIVITIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE USE OF VIRUSES, PHISHING, BRUTEFORCING OR OTHER MEANS OF ATTACK. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES. ACCORDINGLY, SOME OF THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTIES MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

  12. Assumption of Risk.  You accept, acknowledge, and assume the following risks:

    • (a) You are solely responsible for determining what, if any, Taxes and Gas Fees apply to your transactions through the Services. Neither the Tanssi Foundation nor any of the Tanssi Foundation’s affiliates are responsible for determining the Taxes that apply to such transactions.

    • (b) Our Services do not store, send, or receive digital assets. Any transfer of digital assets occurs within the supporting blockchain and not on the Services. Transactions in digital assets may be irreversible, and, accordingly, losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions may not be recoverable. Some transactions in digital assets shall be deemed to be made when recorded on a public ledger, which is not necessarily the date or time that you initiated the transaction.

    • (c) The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, digital assets, and tokens is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the Services.

    • (d) There are risks associated with using Internet based digital assets, including but not limited to, the risk of hardware, software, and Internet connection and service issues, the risk of malicious software introduction, and the risk that third parties may obtain unauthorized access to information stored within your digital wallet. The Tanssi Foundation will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions, or delays you may experience when effecting transactions involving supported digital assets, however caused, including Gas Fees paid or payable in connection therewith.

    • (e) A lack of use or public interest in the creation and development of distributed ecosystems could negatively impact the development of those ecosystems and related applications and could therefore also negatively impact the potential utility or value of any digital assets.

    • (f) The Services may rely on third-party platforms to perform transactions with respect to any digital assets. If we are unable to maintain a good relationship with such platform providers; if the terms and conditions or pricing of such platform providers change; if we violate or cannot comply with the terms and conditions of such platforms; or if any of such platforms loses market share or falls out of favor or is unavailable for a prolonged period of time, access to and use of the Services will suffer.

    • (g) By accessing and using the Services, you represent that you understand the inherent risks associated with using cryptographic and blockchain-based systems, and that you have a working knowledge of digital assets. Such systems may have vulnerabilities or other failures, or experience other abnormal behavior. The Tanssi Foundation is not responsible for any issues with the blockchains, including forks, technical node issues, or any other issues that may result in fund losses. You acknowledge that the cost and speed of transacting with cryptographic and blockchain-based systems are variable and may increase at any time. You further acknowledge the risk that your digital assets may lose some or all of their value while they are supplied to or from the Services. You further acknowledge that we are not responsible for any of these variables or risks and cannot be held liable for any resulting losses that you experience while accessing the Services. Accordingly, you understand and agree to assume full responsibility for all of the risks of accessing and using and interacting with the Services.

  13. Indemnity. You will indemnify, defend (at the Tanssi Foundation’s option), and hold The Tanssi Foundation and its affiliates and their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents, harmless from and against any claims, disputes, demands, liabilities, damages, losses, and costs and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees arising out of or in any way connected with (a) your access to or use of the Services, (b) your User Content, or (c) your violation of these Terms. You may not settle or otherwise compromise any claim subject to this Section without the Tanssi Foundation’s prior written approval.

  14. Limitation of Liability.

    • (a) TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, NEITHER THE TANSSI FOUNDATION NOR ITS SERVICE PROVIDERS INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING, OR DELIVERING THE SERVICES WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, LOST REVENUES, LOST SAVINGS, LOST BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY, LOSS OF DATA OR GOODWILL, SERVICE INTERRUPTION, COMPUTER DAMAGE OR SYSTEM FAILURE, OR THE COST OF SUBSTITUTE SERVICES OF ANY KIND ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT THE TANSSI FOUNDATION OR ITS SERVICE PROVIDERS HAVE BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE, EVEN IF A LIMITED REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

    • (b) TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL THE AGGREGATE TOTAL LIABILITY OF THE TANSSI FOUNDATION AND ITS AGENTS, REPRESENTATIVES, AND AFFILIATES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS, OR FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, EXCEED THE AMOUNTS YOU HAVE PAID OR ARE PAYABLE BY YOU TO THE TANSSI FOUNDATION FOR USE OF THE SERVICES OR ONE HUNDRED U.S. DOLLARS ($100), IF YOU HAVE NOT HAD ANY PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS TO THE TANSSI FOUNDATION, AS APPLICABLE.

    • (c) THE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE TANSSI FOUNDATION AND YOU.

  15. Governing Law and Forum Choice. These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the arbitration laws of the Cayman Islands and the laws of the Cayman Islands, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in Section 16 “Dispute Resolution,” the exclusive jurisdiction for all Disputes (defined below) that you and the Tanssi Foundation are not required to arbitrate will be the courts located in the Cayman Islands, and you and the Tanssi Foundation each waive any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts.

  16. Dispute Resolution.

    • (a) Mandatory Arbitration of Disputes. We each agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be resolved solely by binding, individual arbitration and not in a class, representative or consolidated action or proceeding. You and the Tanssi Foundation agree that the Arbitration Act (as amended) of the Cayman Islands governs the interpretation and enforcement of these Terms, and that you and the Tanssi Foundation are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms. 

    • (b) Exceptions. As a limited exception to Section 16(a) above, we each retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief from a court to prevent (or enjoin) the infringement or misappropriation of our intellectual property rights. 

    • (c) Conducting Arbitration and Arbitration Rules. The arbitration will be conducted by the Cayman International Mediation and Arbitration Centre (CI-MAC) under its Arbitration Rules.  The CI-MAC Arbitration Rules are available at https://www.caymanarbitration.com/. 

    • (d) Any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) where you live, unless we both agree to a different location. The parties agree that the arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to decide all issues relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability and scope of this arbitration agreement.

    • (e) Arbitration Costs. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the CI-MAC, and we won’t seek to recover the administration and arbitrator fees we are responsible for paying, unless the arbitrator finds your Dispute frivolous. If we prevail in arbitration we’ll pay all of our attorneys’ fees and costs and won’t seek to recover them from you. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses to the extent provided under applicable law.

    • (f) Injunctive and Declaratory Relief. Except as provided in Section 16(b) above, the arbitrator shall determine all issues of liability on the merits of any claim asserted by either party and may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. To the extent that you or we prevail on a claim and seek public injunctive relief (that is, injunctive relief that has the primary purpose and effect of prohibiting unlawful acts that threaten future injury to the public), the entitlement to and extent of such relief must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration. The parties agree that litigation of any issues of public injunctive relief shall be stayed pending the outcome of the merits of any individual claims in arbitration.

    • (g) Class Action Waiver. YOU AND THE TANSSI FOUNDATION AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, if the parties’ Dispute is resolved through arbitration, the arbitrator may not consolidate another person’s claims with your claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Dispute Resolution section shall be null and void.

    • (h) Severability. With the exception of any of the provisions in Section 16(f) of these Terms (“Class Action Waiver”), if an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction decides that any part of these Terms is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of these Terms will still apply.

  17. General Terms.

    • (a) Reservation of Rights. The Tanssi Foundation and its licensors exclusively own all right, title and interest in and to the Services, including all associated intellectual property rights. You acknowledge that the Services are protected by copyright, trademark, and other laws of the United States and foreign countries. You agree not to remove, alter, or obscure any copyright, trademark, service mark, or other proprietary rights notices incorporated in or accompanying the Services.

    • (b) Entire Agreement. These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between the Tanssi Foundation and you regarding the Services, and these Terms supersede and replace all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between the Tanssi Foundation and you regarding the Services. If any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable by an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible, and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. Except where provided by applicable law in your jurisdiction, you may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without the Tanssi Foundation’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms absent our consent or your statutory right, without such consent, will be null and void in its entirety. The Tanssi Foundation may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors, and permitted assigns.

    • (c) Notices. Any notices or other communications provided by the Tanssi Foundation under these Terms will be given: (i) via email; or (ii) by posting to the Services. For notices made by email, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.

    • (d) Waiver of Rights. The Tanssi Foundation’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of the Tanssi Foundation. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.

  18. Contact Information. If you have any questions about these Terms or the Services, please contact the Tanssi Foundation at community@moondancelabs.com.
