Thruster hereby grants you a limited, revocable, transferable, license to access and use those portions of the Site and the Services that are proprietary to Thruster solely in accordance with these Terms. Except as explicitly provided herein, nothing in these Terms shall be deemed to create a license in or under any Company Content or intellectual property rights, and you agree not to sell, license, rent, modify, distribute, copy, reproduce, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, publish, adapt, edit or create derivative works from any Company Content. Use of the Company Content for any purpose not expressly permitted by these Terms is strictly prohibited.

When you deposit Digital Assets into an account in any Thruster-developed smart contract, you retain control over those Digital Assets at all times. The private key associated with the Wallet from which you transfer Digital Assets is the only private key that can control the Digital Assets you transfer into Thruster-developed smart contracts. In some cases, you may withdraw Digital Assets from any Thruster-developed smart contract only to the digital address from which you deposited the Digital Assets. Even if the Thruster front-end is inacccessible, the decentralized nature of blockchains allows users to maintain their non-custodial access to the smart contracts.

  2. Fees

For Services that require payment, you will pay the amounts specified by us, including without limitation as specified on our Site, our documentation or in any invoice or subscription issued by us.

You will be responsible for all taxes associated with the Services other than taxes based on our net income. Your access to and/or use of the Services may be terminated or cancelled without notice for any unpaid and due amount.

  1. Risks

    1. By using the Services or interacting with the Site in any way, you represent and warrant that you understand the inherent risks associated with cryptographic systems and blockchain-based networks; Digital Assets, including the usage and intricacies of native Digital Assets, smart contract-based tokens, and systems that interact with blockchain-based networks. Thruster does not own or control any of the underlying software through which blockchain networks are formed. In general, the software underlying blockchain networks is open source, such that anyone can use, copy, modify, and distribute it. By using the Services, you acknowledge and agree that (i) Thruster is not responsible for the operation of the software and networks underlying the Services, (ii) there exists no guarantee of the functionality, security, or availability of such software and such networks, and (iii) the underlying networks are subject to sudden changes in operating rules, such as those commonly referred to as “forks,” which may materially affect the Services.

    2. You acknowledge and agree that (i) blockchain networks use public/private key cryptography, (ii) you alone are responsible for securing your private keys, (iii) we do not have access to your private keys, (iv) losing control of your private keys will permanently and irreversibly deny you access to your Digital Assets, (v) neither Thruster nor any other person or entity will be able to retrieve or protect your Digital Assets and (vi) if your private keys are lost, then you will not be able to transfer your Digital Assets to any other blockchain address or wallet and if this occurs, then you will not be able to realize any value or utility from the Digital Assets that you may hold.

    3. The Services and your Digital Assets could be impacted by one or more regulatory inquiries or regulatory actions, which could impede or limit the ability of Thruster to continue to make available its proprietary software and, thus, could impede or limit your ability to access or use the Services.

    4. You acknowledge and understand that cryptography is a progressing field with advances in code cracking or other technical advancements, such as the development of quantum computers, which may present risks to Digital Assets and the Services, and could result in the theft or loss of your Digital Assets. To the extent possible, we intend to use commercially reasonable efforts to update or cause to be updated Thruster-developed smart contracts related to the Services to account for any advances in cryptography and to incorporate additional security measures necessary to address risks presented from technological advancements, but you agree that such intention does not guarantee or otherwise ensure full security of the Services.

    5. You acknowledge that the Services are subject to flaws and that you are solely responsible for evaluating any code provided by the Services or Site. This warning and others we provide in these Terms in no way evidence or represent an ongoing duty to alert you to all of the potential risks of utilizing the Services or accessing the Site.

    6. Although we intend to provide accurate and timely information on the Site and during your use of the Services, the Site and other information available when using the Services may not always be entirely accurate, complete, or current and may also include technical inaccuracies or typographical errors. To continue to provide you with as complete and accurate information as possible, information may be changed or updated from time to time without notice, including, without limitation, information regarding our policies. Accordingly, you should verify all information before relying on it, and all decisions based on information contained on the Site or as part of the Services are your sole responsibility. No representation is made as to the accuracy, completeness, or appropriateness for any particular purpose of any information distributed via the Site or otherwise when using the Services. Prices and pricing information may be higher or lower than prices available on platforms providing similar services.

    7. Any use or interaction with the Services requires a comprehensive understanding of applied cryptography and computer science to appreciate the inherent risks, including those listed above. You represent and warrant that you possess relevant knowledge and skills to appreciate and understand such risks. Any reference to a type of Digital Asset on the Site or otherwise during the use of the Services does not indicate our approval or disapproval of the technology on which the Digital Asset relies, and should not be used as a substitute for your understanding of the risks specific to each type of Digital Asset.

    8. Use of the Services may carry financial risk. Digital Assets are, by their nature, highly experimental, risky, and volatile. Transactions entered into in connection with the Services are irreversible, final and there are no refunds. You acknowledge and agree that you will access and use the Site and the Services at your own risk. The risk of loss in trading Digital Assets can be substantial. You should, therefore, carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your circumstances and financial resources. By using the Services, you represent and warrant that you have been, are, and will be solely responsible for making your independent appraisal and investigations into the risks of a given transaction and the underlying Digital Assets. You represent that you have sufficient knowledge, market sophistication, professional advice, and experience to make your evaluation of the merits and risks of any transaction conducted in connection with the Services or any Digital Asset. You accept all consequences of using the Services, including the risk that you may lose access to your Digital Assets indefinitely. All transaction decisions are made solely by you. Notwithstanding anything in these Terms, we accept no responsibility whatsoever for, and will in no circumstances be liable to you in connection with, your use of the Services.

    9. You and we agree to comply with all Applicable Laws and acknowledge that such compliance may require us to, upon request by government agencies, take certain actions or provide information, including without limitation information about you, which may not be in your best interests.

    10. You are responsible for all trades you place, including any erroneous orders that may be filled. We do not take any action to resolve erroneous trades that result from your errors.

    11. Any Services you interact with are entirely your own responsibility and liability, and we are not a party to the Protocol.

    12. At any time, your access to your Digital Assets may be suspended or terminated or there may be a delay in your access or use of your Digital Assets which may result in the Digital Assets diminishing in value.

    13. The Services may be suspended or terminated for any reason or no reason, which may limit your access to your Digital Assets.

    14. You hereby assume, and agree that Thruster will have no responsibility or liability for, the risks set forth in this Section 8. You hereby irrevocably waive, release and discharge all claims, whether known or unknown to you, against Thruster, its affiliates, and each of their respective shareholders, members, directors, officers, managers, employees, lawyers, accountants, advisors, agents, representatives, suppliers and contractors related to any of the risks set forth in this Section 8.

  1. Governing Law

The interpretation and enforcement of these Terms, and any dispute related to these Terms, the Site or the Services, will be governed by and construed and enforced under the laws of Panama without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of Panama or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. You agree that we may initiate a proceeding related to the enforcement or validity of our intellectual property rights in any court having jurisdiction. For any other proceeding that is not subject to arbitration under these Terms, the courts located in Panama will have exclusive jurisdiction. You waive any objection to venue in any such courts.

  1. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration


  1. You and we agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms, the Site or the Services is personal to you and us and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual action, and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action, or any other type of representative proceeding.

  2. Except for disputes in which you or we seek injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and we waive all rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or the Services resolved in court. Instead, for any dispute or claim that you have against us or relating in any way to the Site or the Services, you agree to first contact us and attempt to resolve the claim informally by sending a written notice of your claim (“Notice”) to us by email at legal@thruster.finance. The Notice must: (i) include your name, residence address, email address, and telephone number; (ii) describe the nature and basis of the claim; and (iii) set forth the specific relief sought. Our notice to you will be similar in form to that described above. If you and Thruster cannot reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after such Notice is received, then either party may submit the dispute to binding arbitration administered by the Centro de Conciliación y Arbitraje de PanamáCentre (“CeCAP”) or, under the limited circumstances set forth above, in court. All disputes submitted to the CeCAP will be resolved through confidential, binding arbitration before one arbitrator (the “Arbitrator”). The place of arbitration shall be Panama unless the parties agree otherwise and shall be conducted under CeCAP’s Arbitration Regulation (the “CeCAP Rules”). The language to be used in the arbitral proceedings shall be English. The most recent version of the CeCAP Rules are available on the CeCAP website and are hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the CeCAP Rules or waive your opportunity to read the CeCAP Rules and waive any claim that the CeCAP Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason.

  3. The Arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court, including the power to determine the question of arbitrability. The Arbitrator may conduct only 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.

  4. The Arbitrator, Thruster, and you will maintain the confidentiality of any arbitration proceedings, judgments and awards, including, but not limited to, all information gathered, prepared, and presented for purposes of the arbitration or related to the dispute(s) therein. The Arbitrator will have the authority to make appropriate rulings to safeguard confidentiality unless the law provides to the contrary. The duty of confidentiality does not apply to the extent that disclosure is necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy or in connection with a judicial challenge to an arbitration award or its enforcement, or to the extent that disclosure is otherwise required by law or judicial decision.

  5. You and Thruster agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and all other CeCAP fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Thruster, Thruster will pay all CeCAP fees and costs. You and Thruster agree that the courts of Panama have exclusive jurisdiction over the enforcement of an arbitration award.

  6. Any claim arising out of or related to these Terms or the Services must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, the claim is permanently barred, which means that you and Thruster will not have the right to assert the claim.

  7. If any portion of this Section 16 is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason: (i) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from these Terms; (ii) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of this Section 16 or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis under this Section 16; and (iii) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration. Further, if any part of this Section 16 is found to prohibit an individual claim seeking injunctive relief, then that provision will have no effect to the extent such relief is allowed to be sought out of arbitration, and the remainder of this Section 16 will be enforceable.

  1. Amendments

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to amend these Terms from time to time. If we make changes, we will provide you with notice of such changes, which may include providing notice through the Services or updating the date at the top of these Terms. Unless we state otherwise in our notice, all such modifications are effective immediately, and your continued use of the Site and the Services after we provide that notice will confirm your acceptance of the changes. If you do not agree to the amended Terms, then you must stop using the Site and the Services.

The failure or delay of such Indemnified Party in exercising any right, power, or privilege under these Terms shall not operate as a waiver thereof.

    5. You acknowledge and agree that we will have no responsibility or liability for any failure or delay in performance of the Site or any of the Services, or any loss or damage that you may incur, due to any circumstance or event beyond our control, including without limitation any flood, extraordinary weather conditions, earthquake, or other act of God, fire, war, insurrection, riot, labor dispute, accident, action of government, communications, power failure, or equipment or software malfunction.

You agree that you may not assign or transfer any right to use the Site or the Services, or any of your rights or obligations under these Terms, without our express prior written consent, including by operation of law or in connection with any change of control, which may be withheld at our sole discretion. We may assign or transfer any or all of our rights or obligations under these Terms, in whole or in part, without notice or obtaining your consent or approval.

    7. Headings of sections are for convenience only and shall not be used to limit or construe such sections.

    8. These Terms contain the entire agreement between you and Thruster, and supersede all prior and contemporaneous understandings between the parties regarding the Site and the Services.

    9. In the event of any conflict between these Terms and any other agreement you may have with us, these Terms will control unless the other agreement specifically identifies these Terms and declares that the other agreement supersedes these Terms.

    10. You agree that, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, there shall be no third-party beneficiaries to the Agreement other than the Indemnified Parties.
