Disputes & Arbitration for Residents of the United States". IF YOU ARE LOCATED IN THE UNITED STATES, YOU AGREE THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND CODE WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, AND YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL OF THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND HAVE TAKEN TIME TO CONSIDER THE CONSEQUENCES OF THIS IMPORTANT DECISION.
1. Access to the Code Solution
These Terms apply to your access to and use of the Code Solution. Subject to your compliance with these Terms, you may use the Code Solution in accordance with any documentation or guidelines we make available to you.
2. Changes to these Terms and the Code Solution
Except where prohibited by applicable law, we reserve the right to change these Terms at any time by posting a new version to the Code Website. We may also update the “Last Updated” date at the top of these Terms. Any and all such modifications are effective upon posting and apply to all access to and continued use of the Code Solution. It is your obligation to monitor the Code Website for any such changes. Your continued access to or use of the Code Solution after any changes to these Terms indicates your acceptance of such changes.
We reserve the right to change the Code Solution at any time, without notice. We may, at our discretion, suspend your access to or use of the Code Solution, including: (i) for scheduled maintenance; or (ii) if you violate any provision of these Terms.
3. Code Account
In order to use the Code App, you are required to create an account (“Code Account”) using the available interfaces of the Code App. You're responsible for all activities that occur under your Code Account, or are otherwise referable to your Code Account, whether or not you know about them, and you are solely responsible for your conduct, and the tasks and activities you undertake, on or utilizing the Code Solution.
You acknowledge and understand that when you create a Code Account the Code App will securely generate an Access Key for you (your "Access Key"). Your Access Key will be used to securely store any cryptocurrency you deposit, receive, or buy using the Code App. You are solely responsible for the retention and security of your Access Key, and the photo library it might be stored in. Your Access Key is the only way to restore access to the cryptocurrency if you lose access to your Code Account in the Code App. Anyone who knows your Access Key can access, transfer or spend your cryptocurrency. If you lose your Access Key, you may not be able to access, transfer or spend your cryptocurrency. You acknowledge and agree that Code does not store and is not responsible in any way for the security of your Access Key and you agree to hold Code, its affiliates, representatives, agents and personnel harmless and that no such party shall be liable in any way in the event you lose your Access Key and cannot access, transfer or spend your cryptocurrency. You bear sole responsibility for any loss of your cryptocurrency due to failure to retain and/or secure your Access Key.
You must provide us with true, accurate, current and complete information for your Code Account. If we believe or suspect that your information is not true, accurate, current or complete, we may deny or terminate your access to the Code App.
We reserve the right to disable your access to the Code App at any time and in our sole discretion. You will, however, continue to have access to your cryptocurrency, provided you have your Access Key.
You must not use anyone else’s Code Account at any time without the permission of the Account holder, or attempt, in any manner, to obtain the Access Key or other security information from any other user.
4. The Code App Functionality
Subject to these Terms we grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable and revocable license during the Term to use the Code App in accordance with these Terms.
The Code App may update itself automatically on your device and you acknowledge and agree that you consent to and authorize such updates, including to the extent required by any applicable laws.
You acknowledge and understand that:
The Code App is designed to enable you to interface with the blockchain where your cryptocurrency is stored.
Using the Code App, you may give, receive, deposit, or withdraw cryptocurrency (“Transfers”).
As with wallets for digital currencies generally, your cryptocurrency is susceptible to anyone who has access to your Access Key. You must not share your Access Key with anyone.
It is your responsibility to keep your Code App and your Access Key secure. You should never provide your Access Key to anyone, including any Code representative. We do not have access to your Access Key and cannot support you to recover or reset your Access Key.
You should treat your Code App like a physical wallet and never store more cryptocurrency than you can afford to lose, as we have no responsibility and will not be liable for any loss or damage you suffer from the loss or misappropriation of your Access Key or the loss of any cryptocurrency, as further set out in Sections 8 (Disclaimers), 9 (Cryptocurrency Risk Disclosure Statement) and 10 (Limitation of Liability) below.
5. Transfers Using Your Code App
You are responsible for all conduct and Transfers that take place on the Code App or using your Access Key and that you will take precautions to keep your Access Key secure.
You will comply with all applicable laws when accessing or using the Code App and you will respect those who you encounter in your use of the Code App.
You agree to comply with all applicable U.S. and non-U.S. export control and trade sanctions laws ("Export Laws"). Without limiting the foregoing, you may not download the Code App or use the Code Solution if (i) you are in, under the control of, or a national or resident of Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, or Syria or any other country subject to United States embargo, UN Security Council Resolutions, HM Treasury's financial sanctions regime, or if you are on the U.S. Treasury Department's Specially Designated Nationals List or the U.S. Commerce Department's Denied Persons List, Unverified List, Entity List HM Treasury's financial sanctions regime; or (ii) you intend to supply any Services to Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan or Syria or any other country subject to United States embargo or HM Treasury's financial sanctions regime (or a national or resident of one of these countries), or to a person on the Specially Designated Nationals List, Denied Persons List, Unverified List, Entity List, or HM Treasury's financial sanctions regime.
You understand and agree that the Code App will use your Access Key to programmatically derive and create additional smart contract based time locked accounts on your behalf (“Timelock Accounts”). You understand and agree that cryptocurrency received from other Code users will be deposited into your Timelock Accounts. Cryptocurrency in your Timelock Accounts can never be moved without a signature derived from your Access Key. In order to move funds from your Timelock Accounts you will also need to either (i) get a co-signature from the Code backend servers by conducting a Transfer from within the Code App or (ii) submit an unlock instruction directly to the Timelock smart contract and wait for the time lock period to elapse, which is currently 21 days. After this time lock period has elapsed only a signature derived from your Access Key will be required to move your funds. If you do submit an unlock instruction you will no longer be able to use your Access Key in the Code App. An open source tool that allows you to more easily submit an unlock instruction is available at code-wallet.github.io/timelock-explorer
You understand and agree that the Code App will programmatically rearrange funds in your Timelock Accounts to help maintain your privacy.
You understand and agree that the Code App will use your Access Key to programmatically create temporary smart contract based time locked accounts for use during Transfers (“Temporary Transfer Accounts”). Upon completion of a Transfer, cryptocurrency in your Temporary Transfer Account will be programmatically returned to your Timelock Accounts and your Temporary Transfer Account will be programmatically closed to save rent. If however your Temporary Transfer Account contains dust (“Dust”) your Temporary Transfer Account cannot be closed. (Dust generally constitutes minute amounts of cryptocurrency that could be maliciously sent to your Temporary Transfer Account by unknown persons in order to prevent the programmatic closing of your Temporary Transfer Account.) In this case you understand and agree that any Dust in your Temporary Transfer Account after completion of a Transfer will be burned (i.e. permanently taken out of circulation), after which your Temporary Transfer Account will be programmatically closed.
The Code App is available οnly in cοnnectiοn with thοse cryptocurrencies that we suppοrt which may be subject tο change. As used herein, “cryptocurrency” includes any digital asset or virtual currency held as a record on a blockchain database.
You understand and acknowledge that the fiat value of the cryptocurrency displayed throughout the Code App is only an estimate. These estimates depend on the state of the blockchain and on relevant exchange rates of fiat currency and the valuation of cryptocurrencies, which are constantly changing. You understand and acknowledge that the amount of cryptocurrency displayed in your Code App does not necessarily reflect the exact state of the blockchain at any point in time and may be inaccurate. We do not warrant nor do we make any representations as to the accuracy of the cryptocurrency amounts or fiat values displayed throughout the Code App. For the avoidance of any doubt, “fiat currency” means any currency issued by a central bank of sovereign countries, such as the US Dollar, Euro, etc.
You can access and view the balance of your cryptocurrency in the Code App. You may have the opportunity to create a password or other safeguard to confirm Transfers. If you choose to do this you are responsible for creating a secure password and storing it in a secure location.
You understand and agree that your ability to use the Code App to make Transfers will be subject to per Transfer and per day limits, determined with reference to local guidance in your home country.
Priοr tο doing a Transfer using the Code App, yοu are responsible for verifying the intended recipient of the Transfer. You acknowledge and agree that we dο nοt guarantee the identity οf any recipient, user, requestee οr οther party, and that we are not responsible for any Transfers that are intercepted by an unintended recipient, and that we are not responsible for any Transfers that are intercepted by an unintended recipient.
You acknowledge that all Transfers are irreversible and that we cannot guarantee Transfer confirmation as we do not have control over the blockchain or cryptocurrency network.
While the software has undergone beta testing and continues to be improved by feedback from the user and developer community, you acknowledge and agree that we cannot guarantee that there will be no bugs in the software.
Yοu acknowledge and understand that yοu will nοt receive interest οr οther earnings on your Account, in yοur Wallet or frοm the use οf the Code App.
We have limited responsibility or liability tο yοu fοr Transfers conducted by you or programmatic transactions cοnducted by us, in accοrdance with yοur instructiοns, as further set out in Sections 10 (Disclaimers), 11 (Cryptocurrency Risk Disclosure Statement) and 12 (Limitation of Liability) below.
6. Conditions of Use of the Code Solution
You will not, and will not attempt to:
use yοur Code App tο stοre, send, request, οr receive cryptocurrencies in any fοrm that we dο nοt suppοrt, notwithstanding the capability of the Wallet to facilitate such activities;

9. Third Party Content, Websites or Services
The Code Solution may provide links or access to third party content, websites, or services. We do not endorse any third party content, websites, services, or systems, or guarantee their quality, accuracy, reliability, completeness, currency, timeliness, non-infringement, merchantability, or fitness for any purpose. Third party content, websites, services, or systems are not under our control, and if you choose to access any such content, websites, services or to access the Code Solution from such systems, you do so entirely at your own risk.
THE CODE SOLUTION IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE”, WITH ALL FAULTS AND WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE DISCLAIM ALL REPRESENTATIONS, CONDITIONS, WARRANTIES AND GUARANTEES, EXPRESS, LEGAL, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING REPRESENTATIONS, CONDITIONS, WARRANTIES AND GUARANTEES OF MERCHANTABILITY, QUALITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, DURABILITY, COMPATIBILITY, RELIABILITY, SECURITY, TIMELINESS, SUITABILITY, TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT AND AVAILABILITY OF THE CODE SOLUTION AND ANY SERVICES PROVIDED BY THIRD PARTIES AND THAT THE CODE SOLUTION WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.

If you have a dispute with one or more third parties in connection with your use of the Code Solution, you agree to release us (including our affiliates, and each of their and our respective officers, directors, employees, agents, shareholders, retail partners, licensors, and suppliers) from any claims, demands and damages of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected to such disputes.
Furthermore, you expressly waive any rights you may have under California Civil Code Section 1542 (or analogous laws of other jurisdictions), which states: “A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, and that, if known by him or her must, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.”
11. Cryptocurrency Risk Disclosure Statement
CAUTIΟN: You understand there are substantial risks associated with the purchase, sale, use and holding of cryptocurrencies. Accordingly, you agree that you will carefully evaluate whether yοu can bear the risk associated with cryptocurrencies and whether it is suitable fοr yοu. You agree to familiarize yourself and assume any and all such risks, including:
Cryptocurrency or the value in your Timelock Accounts are not insured in any way by us or by any governmental agency;
The value of any cryptocurrency you hold or acquire through the Code App is accessible with your Access Key. If you lose access to your your Access Key, your cryptocurrency will be unrecoverable and we will not assist you in recovering digital currencies secured with your Access Key.
Code is a developer of software. Code does not operate a digital asset exchange platform or offer trade execution or clearing services and has no oversight, involvement, or control concerning your transactions using the Code Solution. All Transfers between users of the Code App are executed peer-to-peer between users through the blockchain.
We cannot reverse a cryptocurrency Transfer which has been broadcast to the blockchain, and losses due to fraudulent or accidental Transfers are not recoverable;
The price and liquidity of cryptocurrency has been, and may be, subject to large fluctuations on any given day and you may lose any and all value in your cryptocurrency at any time;
Some cryptocurrency service providers have been subject to cyberattacks, malicious activities, and other technical issues that have resulted in the loss or theft of digital currencies to their users and there is a risk that a similar cyberattack, malicious attempt or technical failure or interruption in use or functioning could affect the Code Solution and result in the theft or loss of your digital currencies for which you cannot recover;
Cryptocurrency is not part of a central bank that can take corrective measures to protect the value of cryptocurrency in a crisis;
Neither the Code Solution, we, nor other third parties are your financial intermediaries or custodians of your cryptocurrency and while the Code App may facilitate Transfers, we are nοt a bank, brοkerage, exchange or money transmitter;
Changes to applicable law may adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange or value of cryptocurrency and such changes may be sudden and without notice;
Cryptocurrency is not legal tender and are not backed by a government (i.e. digital currencies do not have the same protection as the money deposited in your bank account); and
Cryptocurrency has value from the continued willingness of market participants to use it, and is susceptible to loss of confidence, which could collapse demand relative to supply and may result in permanent and total loss of value of a particular cryptocurrency if the market for such digital currencies disappears.
12. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
THE FOLLOWING APPLIES TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
IN NO EVENT WILL WE OR OUR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS OR LICENSORS, OR ANY OF THEIR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS OR SHAREHOLDERS BE LIABLE, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES; OR LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF DATA, DATA DELETION, DATA CORRUPTION, FAILURE TO STORE ANY DATA, PERSONAL INJURY, DEATH, EMOTIONAL DISTRESS OR DISCOMFORT, FINES, FEES, PENALTIES OR OTHER LIABILITIES, IN EACH CASE, WHETHER OR NOT WE OR THEY WERE ADVISED OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, RESULTING FROM OR RELATED TO THE CODE SOLUTION OR THE INABILITY TO MAKE USE OF THE CODE SOLUTION, OR THESE TERMS.

14. Disputes & Arbitration for Residents of the United States
If you are a resident of the United States and you have a dispute with us arising out of your use of the Code Solution, this Section 12 applies.
Mandatory Arbitration: You agree to contact us first and attempt to work out any such dispute amicably. If we’re unable to work out a solution amicably, both we and you agree to resolve any disputes arising out of your use of the Code Solution or these Terms through binding arbitration or, at our option, small claims court.
CLASS ACTION WAIVER: TO THE EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES' INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, COLLECTIVE ACTION, OR NON-PAGA REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING (COLLECTIVELY “CLASS ACTION WAIVER”). THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S CLAIMS OR ENGAGE IN ANY CLASS ARBITRATION. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, WE AND YOU ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
In any lawsuit in which: (i) the complaint is filed as a class action, collective action or non-PAGA representative action; and (ii) the civil court of competent jurisdiction in which the complaint was filed finds the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable (and such finding is confirmed by appellate review, if review is sought), the Class Action Waiver shall be severable from these Terms and in such instances, the class action, collective action and/or non-PAGA representative action must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not as a class, collective or non-PAGA representative arbitration.
PAGA WAIVER: TO THE EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, THERE WILL BE NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE BROUGHT, HEARD, OR ARBITRATED ON A GROUP BASIS OR IN ANY ACTION IN WHICH A PARTY SEEKS TO REPRESENT OTHER INDIVIDUAL(S) IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION (“PAGA WAIVER”). PAGA CLAIMS MAY ONLY BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.
In any lawsuit in which: (i) the complaint is filed as a private attorney general action seeking to represent any individual(s) other than the named plaintiff; and (ii) the civil court of competent jurisdiction in which the complaint was filed finds the PAGA Waiver is unenforceable (and such finding is confirmed by appellate review, if review is sought), the PAGA Waiver shall be severable from these Terms and in such instances, the private attorney general action must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not as a private attorney general arbitration.
Notwithstanding any other clause contained in these Terms, any claim that all or part of the Class Action Waiver or PAGA Waiver is invalid, unenforceable, unconscionable, void or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. The Class Action Waiver and PAGA Waiver shall be severable when a dispute is filed as an individual action and severance is necessary to ensure that the individual action proceeds in arbitration.
Opt-out of Mandatory Arbitration: You can decline this mandatory arbitration provision within 30 days of accepting these Terms by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your first and last name and phone number stating your intent to opt-out of the arbitration provision. Note that opting out of this arbitration provision does not affect any other part of these Terms, including the provisions regarding controlling law or in which courts any disputes must be brought.
Arbitration Procedures and Location: The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS under its Comprehensive Rules in effect at the time the arbitration demand is made. The current rules, effective July 1, 2014, can be found here. In the event of any conflict between the rules and these Terms, these Terms shall apply. We and you both agree to submit to the jurisdiction of a single neutral arbitrator selected in accordance with the JAMS Comprehensive Rules. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, San Francisco, California, or any other location we and you mutually agree upon in writing.
Arbitration Fees: The JAMS rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees and each party will be responsible for their own fees under those rules. However, we will pay for your reasonable arbitration fees where: (i) the claim for damages does not exceed $10,000; and (ii) the claims are not frivolous under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b). We will not seek attorneys’ fees or costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b).
You can stop using the Code Solution at any time and without notice to us. Similarly, we may terminate access to the Code App for you or any other users or stop offering all or part of the Code App at any time without notice. In the event of termination, Sections 6-21 survive and continue to apply to you.
16. Controlling Law
To the extent permitted by applicable law, these Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of California for residents of the United States, otherwise, and by the laws of the Province of Ontario, without respect to its conflicts of laws principles. To the extent permitted by applicable law, any claims arising out of or relating to these Terms or use of the Code App that are not subject to Section 12 (Disputes & Arbitration) of these Terms shall be brought exclusively in the federal or state courts of San Francisco County, California, USA, for the residents of the United States, and the courts of competent jurisdiction in the City of Toronto for residents of Canada, and we and you consent to the personal jurisdiction of those courts.

18. Entire Agreement & Severability
These Terms, subject to any amendments, modifications, or additional agreements you enter into with us, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the Code Solution and any use of the Code App. If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid by a court competent jurisdiction, that provision only will be limited to the minimum extent necessary and the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect.
19. No Waiver
Our failure to monitor or enforce a provision of these Terms does not constitute a waiver of our right to do so in the future with respect to that provision, any other provision, or these Terms as a whole.
You may not assign any of your rights, licenses, or obligations under these Terms. Any such attempt at assignment by you shall be void. We may assign its rights, licenses, and obligations under these Terms without your consent. Any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of this Section 17 will be null and void. These Terms will inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the parties, their permitted successors and permitted assignees.
