You agree to promptly update your identity information upon any changes. You authorize us and our third-party service providers to make inquiries that we consider necessary to verify your identity or to protect you and/or us against fraud or other financial crime, and to take all action we deem necessary as a result of such inquiries. You acknowledge and agree that your personal information may be disclosed to check credit references and fraud prevention or financial crime agencies and that these agencies may respond to our inquiries in full.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY; NO WARRANTY.
IN NO EVENT SHALL DEVVIO, ITS AFFILIATES AND SERVICE PROVIDERS, OR ANY OF THEIR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AGENTS, EMPLOYEES OR REPRESENTATIVES, BE LIABLE (A) FOR ANY AMOUNT GREATER THAN THE VALUE OF THE SUPPORTED DIGITAL ASSET REFLECTED IN YOUR DEVVIO ACCOUNT OR (B) FOR ANY LOST PROFITS OR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, INTANGIBLE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH EITHER THE AUTHORIZED OR UNAUTHORIZED USE OF THE SITE OR SERVICES, OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT, EVEN IF A DEVVIO REPRESENTATIVE KNEW OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ANY AGREED OR OTHER REMEDY OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT OF A FINAL JUDICIAL DETERMINATION THAT SUCH DAMAGES WERE A RESULT OF DEVVIO’S GROSS NEGLIGENCE, FRAUD, WILLFUL MISCONDUCT OR INTENTIONAL VIOLATION OF LAW OR EXCEPT IN JURISDICTIONS THAT DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.
SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS WITHOUT ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, DEVVIO SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND/OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. DEVVIO DOES NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES THAT ACCESS TO THE SITE, ANY PART OF THE SERVICES, INCLUDING MOBILE SERVICES, OR ANY OF THE MATERIALS CONTAINED THEREIN, WILL BE CONTINUOUS, UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, OR ERROR-FREE AND WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSSES RELATING THERETO.
Digital Asset Wallets.
General. Digital asset wallets are provided by Devvio. Through these wallets, we enable you to monitor the storage, tracking and management of Digital Assets contained in a hosted digital currency wallet. You will have the ability to request, send and receive (by placing orders), and store Digital Assets from third parties by giving instructions through the Site. We may limit this functionality, and we may require you to verify your identity prior to engaging in certain transactions.
Supported Digital Assets. The wallet services are available only in connection with those Digital Assets and protocols that Devvio, in its sole discretion, supports. Under no circumstances should you attempt to use your Wallet to store, send, request, or receive Digital Assets and protocols that we do not support. We assume no responsibility in connection with any attempt to use your wallet with Digital Assets that we do not support. The Digital Assets we support may change from time to time, based on our sole and absolute discretion. We will notify you in advance if we cease to support a particular Digital Asset. Devvio reserves the right to refuse to process, or to cancel or reverse, any instructions for the purchase or sale of a Digital Asset in its sole discretion, even after funds have been debited from your account(s), if we suspect the transaction involves (or has a high risk of involvement in) money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud, or any other type of financial crime as required by law or in response to a subpoena, court order, or other binding government order or to enforce limits we have placed on your account or for other compliance reasons.
Commingled Digital Assets. Devvio may use shared blockchain addresses, controlled by Devvio or its custodian partners, to hold Digital Assets at third party custodians on behalf of users and/or on behalf of Devvio. Although we maintain separate ledgers for users and proprietary accounts, Devvio shall have no obligation to segregate by blockchain address Digital Assets owned by you from Digital Assets owned by others.
Digital Asset Transactions. We process transactions according to the instructions you submit to us. We do not guarantee the identity of any user, receiver, or another party; therefore, you should verify that all information is correct prior to sending instructions to us. If you submit an order, that order will be irrevocable and final unless that order is cancelled prior to execution. Any pending withdrawals from your Devvio Account that have been submitted to a Digital Asset network will be unconfirmed for a period of time pending sufficient confirmation of the transaction by the Digital Asset network. Transactions in a pending state may not be available for Devvio to reverse or otherwise alter the transaction. The funds used for your pending transactions will not be displayed in your account balance or be available to conduct other transactions.
Devvio Processes. Devvio may act as agent or principal in facilitating your purchases and sales of Digital Assets on the Devvio platforms or across the platforms and may receive remuneration for doing so. Devvio may also incentivize third parties to use our platforms. You and all users, including Devvio and its associated persons, are strictly prohibited from engaging in fraudulent or manipulative activity including, but not limited to, insider trading and front-running.
Purchases and Sales. After successfully completing the verification procedures, you may purchase supported Digital Assets by funding your Devvio Account and may sell supported Digital Assets by transferring the applicable Digital Asset to your Devvio Account. You authorize Devvio and our custodian partners, as applicable, to initiate credits and debits in your Devvio Account in settlement of transactions. A Transaction Fee applies to all transactions. Although Devvio and our partner custodians will attempt to deliver supported Digital Assets to your account as promptly as possible, funds may be debited from your selected payment method before the Digital Asset is delivered and viewable in your Devvio Account. Your receipt of funds upon withdrawal from your Devvio Account will depend on the payment type, and may take up to six or more business days. We and our custodian partners will use best efforts to fulfill all orders, but are under no obligation to do so. To secure the performance of your obligations under this Agreement, you may be required to grant to Devvio or its custodian partner a lien on and security interest in and to the balances in your Devvio Account.
Reversals Cancellations. You cannot cancel, reverse, or change any transaction marked as “Complete,” and you may not be able to cancel, reverse, or change any transaction marked as “Pending.”
Digital Asset Storage Transmission Delays. Digital assets are securely held in either online or offline storage or a combination of both. As a result, it may be necessary for Devvio to communicate with our custodian partners to retrieve certain information from offline storage in order to facilitate a Digital Asset transaction in accordance with your instructions, which, in turn, may delay the initiation or crediting of your transaction for 48 hours or longer. You acknowledge and agree that a Digital Asset transaction facilitated by Devvio may be delayed.
Debts. If your payment is not successful or if your payment method has insufficient funds, you authorize Devvio, in its sole discretion, to cancel the transaction or to debit your other payment methods in any amount necessary to complete the transaction. You are responsible for maintaining an adequate balance in order to avoid overdraft.
Third Parties. Devvio has no control over, or liability for, the delivery, quality, safety, legality or any other aspect of any goods or services that you may purchase or sell to or from a third party (including other users). Devvio is not responsible for ensuring that a buyer or a seller you may transact with will actually complete the transaction or is authorized to do so. If you experience a problem with any goods or services purchased from, or sold to, a third party in connection with a Digital Asset transferred using our Site or Services, or if you have a dispute with such third party, you must resolve the dispute directly with that third party. If you believe a third party has behaved in a fraudulent, misleading, or inappropriate manner, or if you cannot adequately resolve a dispute with a third party, you may notify Devvio Support so that we may consider what action to take, if any:email@example.com
Promotions. We may conduct promotions and special offers and reserve the right to establish qualifying user criteria to participate in these promotions and offers. Devvio shall have no obligation to make promotions and special offers available to all users and may revoke these events at any time without notice.
Fees and Other Remuneration. Generally, we receive compensation for our Services by charging fees based on a percentage of the transaction or by taking a spread. Our custodian partners may also charge fees for their services. Fees such as withdrawal fees and network fees (miner fees) to process a Digital Asset transaction on your behalf may be charged. Network fees will vary between Digital Assets and during periods of high network traffic. Certain minimums apply to the fees we charge. You can view the schedule of currently applicable fees per pairing and payment method as described in our website. We will notify you of any fees prior to your confirmation of your order. We do not refund our fees for completed transactions unless we have agreed to do so in writing or otherwise required by law. You hereby agree to pay all applicable fees and to be responsible for paying fees charged by your financial service provider.
Records. Prior to executing any transaction on our platform, we will provide you with notice of the terms and conditions of the transactions, including the amount of the transaction, the costs associated with the transaction, the type and nature of the transaction, and a warning that, once executed, the transaction may not be undone. After you execute a transaction on our platform, as well as successful withdrawals and deposits, we will send you an email receipt as evidence of the transaction. In addition, a statement of account is available to users through our Platform.
Staking Services. When you hold Digital Assets in your Devvio Account, you may be able to “stake” these assets via staking services facilitated by Devvio.
Optional Staking. YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO STAKE WITH DEVVIO AND YOU CAN OPT-OUT OF DEVVIO’S STAKING SERVICES AT ANY TIME BY EMAILING:firstname.lastname@example.orgDevvio may take three (3) business days or longer to reflect your choice not to stake your Digital Assets. If you opt-out of staking services, you can opt back in at any time. Should you choose to stake any Digital Assets held in your Devvio Account, these Digital Assets may be locked (unavailable for withdrawal or trading) for up to three business days (or as otherwise applicable pursuant to the underlying protocol) from any withdrawal or trading request.
Staking Service; Rewards; Commission. If you stake your assets with our service, the protocol will stake these on your behalf, acting as a transaction validator on the network for the Digital Asset you stake. If the protocol or our custodian partner successfully validates a block of transactions in the applicable Digital Asset, you may earn a reward granted by that Digital Asset’s network. Your reward will be determined by the protocols of the applicable token. Devvio will distribute this reward to you pro rata, minus any commissions set forth on our website. Staking rewards are not guaranteed and are subject to the individual protocol of the applicable Digital Asset, and may change at any time without notice. Devvio does not distribute any rewards earned when serving as a transaction validator or similar network node on its own behalf.
No Guarantee. You have no right to a reward until it is received by the designated protocol or our custodian partner and processed by Devvio and until you have maintained a positive balance for at least three (3) consecutive days during the applicable period. Your reward will be distributed on a pro-rata basis based on your average balance of the particular Digital Asset to the total of all rewards received by our custodian partner and processed by Devvio during the applicable period. Rewards will be distributed to your Devvio Account once per month unless otherwise provided. Devvio will use reasonable efforts to facilitate the staking of any Digital Assets for which you are using Devvio’s staking services. The “staking rewards rate” is disclosed by Devvio for each particular Digital Asset. For any Digital Asset listed for less than 90 days, Devvio shall use commercially reasonable efforts to determine a reward rate that it determines is reasonably likely to be achieved for the following month. This rate is an estimate and changes over time. DEVVIO DOES NOT GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE ANY STAKING REWARDS, ANY SPECIFIC STAKING REWARD, OR ANY STAKING RETURN OVER TIME, INCLUDING THE STAKING REWARDS RATE. ALL SUCH REWARDS ARE BASED ENTIRELY ON THE UNDERLYING PROTOCOL OF THE APPLICABLE DIGITAL ASSET.
Devvio reserves the right in its sole and absolute discretion to cease providing staking services, including discontinuing the accrual of any rewards, in the event that Devvio suspects any fraud, misconduct, potential compromise of the underlying protocol or any other Prohibited Use or Prohibited Business.

APPENDIX 4: STATE LICENSE DISCLOSURES
Please note the following disclosures associated with virtual currency:
Virtual currency is not legal tender, is not backed by the government, and accounts and value balances are not subject to Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or Securities Investor Protection Corporation protections.
Legislative and regulatory changes or actions at the state, federal, or international level may adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange, and value of virtual currency.
Transactions in virtual currency may be irreversible, and, accordingly, losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions may not be recoverable.
Some virtual currency transactions shall be deemed to be made when recorded on a public ledger, which is not necessarily the date or time that the customer initiates the transaction.
The value of virtual currency may be derived from the continued willingness of market participants to exchange fiat currency for virtual currency, which may result in the potential for permanent and total loss of value of a particular virtual currency should the market for that virtual currency disappear.
There is no assurance that a person who accepts a virtual currency as payment today will continue to do so in the future.
The volatility and unpredictability of the price of virtual currency relative to fiat currency may result in significant loss over a short period of time.
The nature of virtual currency may lead to an increased risk of fraud or cyber attack.
The nature of virtual currency means that any technological difficulties experienced by Devvio may prevent the access or use of a customer's virtual currency.
Any bond or trust account maintained by Devvio for the benefit of its customers may not be sufficient to cover all losses incurred by customers.
Fiat withdrawals and deposits, once initiated, can be stopped pursuant to Devvio 's policies and procedures, which follow traditional banking best practices. However, any transaction involving digital currencies, once initiated, may not be stoppable.
POTENTIAL USERS OF DIGITAL OR VIRTUAL CURRENCIES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DEVVE, SHOULD BE FOREWARNED OF A POSSIBLE FINANCIAL LOSS AT THE TIME THAT SUCH CURRENCIES ARE EXCHANGED FOR FIAT CURRENCY DUE TO AN UNFAVORABLE EXCHANGE RATE. A FAVORABLE EXCHANGE RATE AT THE TIME OF EXCHANGE CAN RESULT IN A TAX LIABILITY. PLEASE CONSULT YOUR TAX ADVISOR REGARDING ANY TAX CONSEQUENCES ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR HOLDING OR USE OF DIGITAL OR VIRTUAL CURRENCIES.
