Edge & Node Website offered by Edge & Node Ventures, Inc. (“Edge & Node”). Edge & Node is a software development company that creates and supports protocols and dApps that are building the decentralized future. The “Services” refer to any services that we and/or our affiliates may make available to you including any services we may provide through our website at the https://edgeandnode.com/ site or any associated websites (collectively, the “Site”) or through any other means.

Agreement to Terms

By using our Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms of Service and any other terms that are incorporated by reference in the Terms of Service including our Privacy Policy, any other agreements we present to you, and any other terms as part of any future functionality as related to the Services (unless otherwise stated in such terms) (collectively, “Terms”). Please review these Terms carefully. If you don’t agree to be bound by these Terms, do not use the Services. If you violate any of these Terms, you may lose your right to use any Services.

For the purposes of these Terms:

  • “Edge & Node,” "us," "our," or "we" refers to Edge & Node, Inc. and/or our affiliates;
  • “You” and “your” refers to anybody who accesses or uses, in any way, the Services (as defined below); and

If you are accessing or using and accessing the Services 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.

READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING OR ACCESSING THE SERVICES. YOU CANNOT USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICES IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THESE TERMS. IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING ARBITRATION FOR U.S. CUSTOMERS: WHEN YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS YOU ARE AGREEING (WITH LIMITED EXCEPTION) TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND EDGE & NODE THROUGH BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT.

Governing Law and Forum Choice

These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the Delaware, unless otherwise, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in Section 13 “Dispute Resolution,” the exclusive jurisdiction for all Disputes (as defined below) will be the courts located in the Delaware, and you and Edge & Node each waive any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts.

Dispute Resolution and Arbitration; Class Action Waiver

  • (a) Mandatory Arbitration of Disputes. We each agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be resolved solely by binding, individual arbitration and not in a class, representative or consolidated action or proceeding. You and we agree that the JAMS International Arbitration Rules governs the interpretation and enforcement of these Terms, and that you and we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms.

  • (b) Exceptions. As limited exceptions to listed in Section 17(a) above: (i) we both may seek to resolve a Dispute in small claims court if it qualifies; and (ii) we each retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief from a court to prevent (or enjoin) the infringement or misappropriation of our intellectual property rights.

  • (c) Conducting Arbitration and Arbitration Rules. The arbitration will be conducted by the JAMS (“JAMS”) under its International Arbitration Rules (the “JAMS Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by these Terms. The JAMS Rules are available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1-800-352-JAMS. A party who wishes to start arbitration must submit a written Demand for Arbitration to JAMS and give notice to the other party as specified in the JAMS Rules. JAMS provides a form Demand for Arbitration at www.jamsadr.com. Any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) where you live, unless we both agree to a different location. The parties agree that the arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to decide all issues relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability and scope of this arbitration agreement.

  • (d) Arbitration Costs. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS Rules, and we won’t seek to recover the administration and arbitrator fees we are responsible for paying, unless the arbitrator finds your Dispute frivolous. If we prevail in arbitration we’ll pay all of our attorneys’ fees and costs and won’t seek to recover them from you. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses to the extent provided under applicable law.

  • (e) Injunctive and Declaratory Relief. Except as provided in Section 18(b) above, the arbitrator shall determine all issues of liability on the merits of any claim asserted by either party and may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. To the extent that you or we prevail on a claim and seek public injunctive relief (that is, injunctive relief that has the primary purpose and effect of prohibiting unlawful acts that threaten future injury to the public), the entitlement to and extent of such relief must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration. The parties agree that litigation of any issues of public injunctive relief shall be stayed pending the outcome of the merits of any individual claims in arbitration.

  • (f) Class Action Waiver. YOU AND EDGE & NODE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, if the parties’ Dispute is resolved through arbitration, the arbitrator may not consolidate another person’s claims with your claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Dispute Resolution section shall be null and void.

  • (g) Severability. With the exception of any of the provisions in Section 18(f) of these Terms (“Class Action Waiver”), if an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction decides that any part of these Terms is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of these Terms will still apply.

Severability

If any clause within this Provision (other than the Dispute Resolution and Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Provision whose remainder will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, this entire Provision will be unenforceable and the dispute will be decided by a court.

General

  • (a) Reservation of Rights. Edge & Node and its licensors exclusively own all right, title and interest in and to the Services, including all associated intellectual property rights. You acknowledge that the Services are protected by copyright, trademark, and other laws of the United States and foreign countries. You agree not to remove, alter or obscure any copyright, trademark, service mark or other proprietary rights notices incorporated in or accompanying the Services.

  • (b) Entire Agreement These Terms may be superseded by expressly designated legal notices or terms provided through the Services. These expressly designated legal notices or terms are incorporated into these Terms and supersede the provision(s) of these Terms that are designated as being superseded. Unless otherwise stated, these Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between us and you regarding the Services, and these Terms supersede and replace all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between us and you regarding the Services.

  • (c) Notices. Any notices or other communications provided by us under these Terms will be given: (i) via email; or (ii) by posting to the Services. For notices made by email, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.

  • (d) Waiver of Rights. our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Edge & Node. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
