1. DESCRIPTION AND USE OF OUR WALLET
The Quai Network Wallet utilizes MetaMask Flask, a developer version of MetaMask. You will be required to install a MetaMask Flask extension for Chrome, and you will need a MetaMask Flask account, in order to use and access your Quai Network Wallet. Once you’ve set up your MetaMask Flask account, you will be able to link it to the Quai Network and your Quai Network Wallet.
The Quai Network Wallet is a non-interest-bearing account that allows you to hold, transfer, and manage your cryptocurrency. Quai does not require a minimum amount to open or maintain a Quai Network Wallet. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Quai may, in our own discretion and without your consent, impose limits on the transactions made with your Quai Network Wallet. Through your Quai Network Wallet, you will be able to create new accounts, import accounts from third-party networks, generate wallet addresses and associated private keys that you may use to send and receive cryptocurrency, and take advantage of other functions and services offered by Quai through the Quai Network.
Quai is not a party to any agreement or transaction between you and any third-party. You are solely responsible for verifying the legitimacy, identity and authenticity of any cryptocurrency that you purchase and store in your Quai Network Wallet.
The Quai Network Wallet is available only for individuals aged 18 years or older. If you are under 18, please do not use the Quai Network Wallet. By access and/or using the Quai Network Wallet, you represent and warrant that you are at least 18.
3. USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
4. ACCESSING YOUR QUAI NETWORK WALLET
Your private key associated with your Quai Network Wallet address is generated by MetaMask, not Quai. Your Quai Network Wallet address, together with your privacy key, may be used to authorize the transfer of cryptocurrencies to and from that Quai Network Wallet address. You are solely responsible for the retention and security of your private key and any secret phrase associated with your Quai Network Wallet. Failure to keep your Quai Network Wallet address and private key secure may result in the loss of control of digital assets associated with your Quai Network Wallet. You acknowledge and agree that we do not receive or store your Quai Network Wallet password, encrypted private key, unencrypted private key, or secret phrase associated with your Quai Network Wallet. We cannot generate a new password for your Quai Network Wallet if you fail to remember your original password. If you have not safely stored a backup of any wallet address and private key pairs maintained in your Quai Network Wallet, you accept and acknowledge that any digital assets you have associated with such Quai Network Wallet address may become inaccessible. Accordingly, Quai shall have no responsibility or liability whatsoever in the event you are unable to access your Quai Network Wallet for any reason including without limitation your failure to keep your Quai Network Wallet address or private key information secure. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, you agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your private key or any other breach of security of your Quai Network Wallet.
5. CRYPTO TRANSACTIONS
In order to execute a cryptocurrency transaction, the transaction must be confirmed and recorded in the associated public blockchain. We have no control over the blockchain networks and, therefore, cannot and do not ensure that any transaction details that you submit via the Quai Network Wallet or the Quai Network will be confirmed and processed. By using the Quai Network Wallet, you acknowledge and agree that: (i) we do not have the ability to cancel or otherwise modify any transaction; and (ii) the applicable blockchain network may fail to complete any transaction.
You understand that your Quai Network public address may be made publicly visible whenever you engage in a transaction on the Quai Network. We have no liability to you, or to any third party, for any claims or damages that may arise as a result of any payments or transactions that you engage in via the Quai Network or using your Quai Network Wallet.
You own all rights, title, and interest in and to any cryptocurrency held in your Quai Network Wallet. You hereby represent and warrant to us that: (i) any cryptocurrency that you transfer into your Quai Network Wallet is owned by you at the time of transfer; and (ii) you are authorized to instruct us to carry out transactions relating to your Quai Network Wallet, and all transactions initiated with your Quai Network Wallet are for your own account (or, in the case of business accounts, for your business’s account) and not on behalf of any other person or entity.
It is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to the transactions that you have submitted to your Quai Network Wallet. Quai is not responsible for determining whether taxes apply to your transactions or for collecting, reporting, withholding, or remitting any taxes arising from any digital asset-related transactions.
