BaksDAO Terms of Use
09 December, 2021

The Interface is a community-driven platform governed by and belongs to a BaksDAO Network decentralized autonomous organization (“DAO”) governance mechanism that is constantly improving. The Interface provides potential virtual currency exchange interaction possibilities in a form of data live. And the Interface is a decentralized informational data network of open-source software, online protocols such as informational aggregation protocol and decentralized liquidity protocol (the “Protocol”) that sharing the best potential virtual currency exchange possibilities by discovering the most efficient swapping routes across all leading decentralized open-sourced data informational platforms for the BaksDAO Network participants. These Terms of Use and any terms and conditions incorporated herein by reference (collectively, the “Terms”) govern your access to and use of the Interface. You must read the Terms carefully.
To make these Terms easier to read:
  • BaksDAO Foundation is referred to as “BaksDAO”, “we”, “us” or “our”.
  • “You” and “your” refers to anybody who accesses or uses, in any way, the Interface. If you are accessing or using the Interface on behalf of a company (such as your employer) or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that entity to these Terms and, in that case, “you” and “your” will refer to that entity. By accessing, browsing or otherwise using the Interface, or by acknowledging agreement to the Terms on the Interface, you agree that you have read, understood and accepted all of the Terms and our Privacy Policy (the “Privacy Policy”), which is incorporated by reference into the Terms.

We value your feedback and proposals related to any 2 governance issues. Therefore, we have created a Github repository for BaksDAO improvement proposals. We invite you to make improvement proposals that will then be publicly discussed in the repository.

Indemnification

TL;DR: If someone sues us because of something you did, you’re responsible for it, so read the below carefully.
You agree to hold harmless, release, defend, and indemnify us and our officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, affiliates, and subsidiaries from and against all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs and expenses arising from (a) your access to and use of the Interface; (b) your violation of these Terms, the right of any third party, or any other applicable law, rule, or regulation; and (c) any other party’s access and use of the Interface with your assistance or using any device or account that you own or control.

Limitation of Liability

TL;DR: It's really important to highlight how our liability is limited when it comes to issues you may encounter with our service. Please read the whole section carefully.
Under no circumstances shall we or any of our officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, affiliates, or subsidiaries be liable to you for any indirect, punitive, incidental, special, consequential, or exemplary damages, including (but not limited to) damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data, or other intangible property, arising out of or relating to any access to or use of the Interface, nor will we be responsible for any damage, loss, or injury resulting from hacking, tampering, or other unauthorized access to or use of the Interface, or from any access to or use of any information obtained by any unauthorized access to or use of the Interface. We assume no liability or responsibility for any: (a) errors, mistakes, or inaccuracies of content; (b) personal injury or property damage, of 9 any nature whatsoever, resulting from any access to or use of the Interface; (c) unauthorized access to or use of any secure server or database in our control, or the use of any information or data stored therein; (d) interruption or cessation of function related to the Interface; (e) bugs, viruses, trojan horses, or the like that may be transmitted to or through the Interface; (f) errors or omissions in, or loss or damage incurred as a result of, the use of any content made available through the Interface; and (g) the defamatory, offensive, or illegal conduct of any third party.

This limitation of liability applies regardless of whether the alleged liability is based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, or any other basis, and even if we have been advised of the possibility of such liability. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of certain liabilities and damages. Accordingly, some of the disclaimers and limitations set forth in the Terms may not apply to you. This limitation of liability shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by law.

Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

TL;DR: A third party arbitrator will help us resolve any disputes we might have. This means that any dispute will be resolved outside of class-action litigation. Hopefully, disputes will never be an issue, but you should read this section carefully for details on how it works.
Binding Arbitration. Except for disputes in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, you and the BaksDAO: (a) waive the right to have any and all disputes or claims arising from these Terms, your use or access to the Interface or any other disputes with the BaksDAO (collectively, “Disputes”) resolved in a court; and (b) waive any right to a jury trial. Instead, you and the BaksDAO agree to arbitrate Disputes that are not resolved informally (as described below) through binding arbitration (i.e. the referral of a Dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the Dispute and making a final and binding determination to resolve it) instead of having the Dispute decided by a judge or jury in court). No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions. You and the BaksDAO agree that any dispute is personal to you and the BaksDAO and that any such dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding. Neither party agrees to class arbitration or to an arbitration in which an individual attempt to resolve a dispute as a representative of another individual or group of individuals. Further, you and the BaksDAO agree that a dispute cannot be brought as a class, or other types of 10 representative action, whether within or outside of arbitration, or on behalf of any other individual or group of individuals. Process. You and the BaksDAO agree that each will notify the other, in writing, of any Dispute within thirty (30) days of when it arises so that the parties can attempt, in good faith, to resolve the Dispute informally. Notice to the BaksDAO shall be provided by sending an email to [email protected]. Your notice must include (1) your name, postal address, and email address; (2) a description of the nature or basis of the Dispute; and (3) the specific action that you are seeking. If you and the BaksDAO cannot resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days of the BaksDAO receiving the notice, either you or BaksDAO may, as appropriate pursuant to this Section 9, commence an arbitration proceeding. You and the BaksDAO agree that any arbitration or claim must be commenced or filed within one (1) year after the Dispute arose; otherwise, you and the BaksDAO agree that the claim is permanently barred (which means that you will no longer have the right to assert a claim regarding the Dispute). Choice of Law. These Terms are governed by and will be construed under the laws of the Wales, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, govern the Terms and any Dispute between you and us. Any Dispute under this Terms shall be finally settled by Binding Arbitration (as defined below). Any unresolved Dispute arising out of or in connection with these Terms shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration under the rules of the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), which rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference into this Section 9 to the extent they are consistent with it. Any dispute arising from or relating to the subject matter of these Terms shall be finally settled in London, United Kingdom, in English, in accordance with the LCIA Arbitration Rules. Unless we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate your claims with those of any other party. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction, to the extent a court therein would be deemed to be a court of competent jurisdiction other than any court located in the United States of America. You further agree that the Interface shall be deemed to be based solely in the Wales and that, although the Interface may be available in other jurisdictions, its availability does not give rise to general or specific personal jurisdiction in any forum outside the Wales. Authority of Arbitrator. As limited by these Terms and applicable arbitration rules, the arbitrator will have: (a) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute; and (b) the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.

Last but not Least

Changes. We may amend any portion of these Terms at any time by posting the revised version of these Terms with an updated revision date. The changes will become effective 11 and shall be deemed accepted by you, the first time you use or access the Interface after the initial posting of the revised Terms and shall apply on a going-forward basis with respect to your use of the Interface including any transactions initiated after the posting date. In the event that you do not agree with any such modification, your sole and exclusive remedy are to terminate your use of the Interface. Entire Agreement. These Terms (and any additional terms, rules and conditions of participation that may be posted on the website of BaksDAO Network) including the Privacy Policy constitute the entire agreement with respect to the Interface and supersedes any prior agreements, oral or written. Privacy Policy. The Privacy Policy describes the ways we collect, use, store and disclose your personal information. You agree to the collection, use, storage, and disclosure of your data in accordance with the Privacy Policy. Survival. Upon termination of these Terms for any reason, all rights and obligations of the parties that by their nature are continuing will survive such termination. Captions and Summaries. The captions identifying the various sections and subsections of these Terms are for reference only and do not define, modify, expand, or limit any of the provisions of these Terms and shall not affect the interpretation of these Terms.
