# Website Terms & Conditions


By using the Websites you confirm that you accept these Terms and that you agree to comply with them. If you do not agree to these Terms, you must not use our Websites.

# 1. About the Website

The Website is operated by the Site Operator (also referred to as “we“). The user of the Websites is also referred to as “you“ throughout these Terms.

The Websites provide users with an interface to interact with the ERIS Smart Contract Protocol (as defined below). Among other things, the Websites aggregate and publish publicly available third-party information about the ERIS Smart Contract Protocol. The Websites also offer interaction methods whereby you can indicate a transaction that you would like to perform in connection with the ERIS Smart Contract Protocol (such as swapping one token for another). When used in this way, the relevant Website can generate a draft transaction message which you can independently use together with a third-party wallet application or device to conduct transactions on Terra. Before using information from the Websites (including any draft transaction messages) to engage in transactions, you must independently verify the accuracy of such information (and the consistency of such draft transaction messages with your intended use).

All interactions between users on the Website or the ERIS Smart Contract Protocol operate in a peer-to-peer manner. Users, traders and liquidity providers enter into a direct contractual relationship via the autonomous smart contracts allowing users to create derivative tokens or trade in these derivative tokens, and therefore these users assume mutual responsibilities and obligations. There is no further control by or interaction with the Site Operator (or the relevant affiliate) which had deployed the smart contract. The Site Operator and its affiliates shall in no circumstances be construed as a party to said peer-to-peer direct contractual relationship, is not liable for performance of obligations thereunder, nor does it bear any financial or commercial risk or provide any warranties or assurances in connection with the same.

Using Terra or the ERIS Smart Contract Protocol does not require use of the Websites. The Websites aggregate and publish publicly available information about Terra and the ERIS Smart Contract Protocol in a user-friendly and convenient format. Such information is also independently available from other sources—for example, a person may directly review Terra transaction history, account balances and the ERIS Smart Contract Protocol on a Terra block explorer.

By combining publicly available information with a user’s interactions with the relevant Website, such Website can draft standard transaction messages compatible with the ERIS Smart Contract Protocol which are designed to accomplish a user’s operational goals as expressed through the interactions. If you choose to, you can also publish such messages on Terra in order to initiate token transactions.

All draft transaction messages are delivered by the relevant Website via API to your compatible third-party Terra wallet application or device selected by you after pressing the “Connect Wallet” button. You must personally review and authorize all transaction messages that you want to send to Terra; you are required to sign the relevant transaction message with a private cryptographic key which is inaccessible to the Website. The user-authorized message will then be broadcast to validators on Terra through the wallet application or device and you may pay a network fee to have such validators apply the transaction message to the ERIS Smart Contract Protocol and record the results on Terra, meaning that a token transaction is completed on Terra.

Neither the Site Operator nor the Websites themselves are your agents or intermediaries, they do not store or have access to or control over any tokens, private keys, passwords, accounts or other property belonging to a user, and they are not capable of performing transactions or sending transaction messages on your behalf. The Websites do not hold and cannot purchase, sell or trade any tokens. All transactions relating to the ERIS Smart Contract Protocol are effected and recorded solely through the interactions of a user with the Terra validators, who are not under the control of or affiliated with the Site Operator or the Websites.

ERIS Smart Contract Protocol means the source code at https://github.com/erisprotocol, which is a slow unbonding arbitrage protocol built on Terra, where you can invest in arbitrage pools that will automatically execute.

As such, such tokens will not constitute or represent legal obligations of any kind of any person. On this basis, holders of such tokens will have no legally enforceable rights, claims or entitlements against any person.
