Pando Proto Terms of Service
Last modified: April 13th, 2023
These Terms of Service (the "Agreement") explain the terms and conditions by which you may access and use the Products provided by Pando Proto (referred to herein as "Pando Proto", "we", "our", or "us").
The Products shall include, but shall not necessarily be limited to, (a) https://app.pando.im, a website-hosted user interface (the "Interface" or "App"), (b) https://leaf.pando.im, https://rings.pando.im, https://app.4swap.org, some website-host user interfaces beside the main protocols (the "Sub-Interface" or "Sub App"). (c) Fennec, an opensource browser extension based wallet for Mixin Network blockchain. You must read this Agreement carefully as it governs your use of the Products. By accessing or using any of the Products, you signify that you have read, understand, and agree to be bound by this Agreement in its entirety. If you do not agree, you are not authorized to access or use any of our Products and should not use our Products.
To access or use any of our Products, you must be able to form a legally binding contract with us. Accordingly, you represent that you are at least the age of majority in your jurisdiction (e.g., 18 years old in the United States) and have the full right, power, and authority to enter into and comply with the terms and conditions of this Agreement on behalf of yourself and any company or legal entity for which you may access or use the Interface. If you are entering into this Agreement on behalf of an entity, you represent to us that you have the legal authority to bind such entity.
You further represent that you are not (a) the subject of economic or trade sanctions administered or enforced by any governmental authority or otherwise designated on any list of prohibited or restricted parties (including but not limited to the list maintained by the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of the Treasury) or (b) a citizen, resident, or organized in a jurisdiction or territory that is the subject of comprehensive country-wide, territory-wide, or regional economic sanctions by the United States. Finally, you represent that your access and use of any of our Products will fully comply with all applicable laws and regulations, and that you will not access or use any of our Products to conduct, promote, or otherwise facilitate any illegal activity.
NOTICE: This Agreement contains important information, including a binding arbitration provision and a class action waiver, both of which impact your rights as to how disputes are resolved. Our Products are only available to you — and you should only access any of our Products — if you agree completely with these terms.
1. Our Products
1.1 The Interface
The Interface provides a web or mobile-based means of access to a decentralized protocol on public blockchains, including but not limited to Mixin Network and Ethereum, that allows users to trade certain compatible digital assets (the "Pando Lake Protocol", "4swap Protocol" or the "Protocol").
The Interface is distinct from the Protocol and is one, but not the exclusive, means of accessing the Protocol. The Protocol comprises open-source or source-available self-executing smart contracts or equivalent technology called "MTG" that are deployed on public blockchains, such as Mixin Network and Ethereum. Pando Proto does not control or operate any version of the Protocol on any blockchain network. By using the Interface, you understand that you are not buying or selling digital assets from us and that we do not operate any liquidity pools on the Protocol or control trade execution on the Protocol. When traders pay fees for trades, those fees accrue to liquidity providers for the Protocol.
As a general matter, Pando Proto is not a liquidity provider into Protocol liquidity pools and liquidity providers are independent third parties. The Protocol was initially deployed on the Mixin Network blockchain, and may has been deployed on several other blockchain networks including by parties other than Pando Proto. Deployments on other networks typically make use of cross-chain bridges, which allow assets native to one blockchain to be transferred to another blockchain. Please note that digital assets that have been "bridged" or "wrapped" to operate on other blockchain networks (including to blockchains compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine that are designed to ensure the Ethereum blockchain can effectively process more transactions or other blockchains that are frequently referred to as "Layer 2" solutions) are distinct from the original Ethereum mainnet asset.
To access the Interface, you must use a non-custodial wallet software, which allows you to interact with public blockchains. Your relationship with that non-custodial wallet provider is governed by the applicable terms of service (with respect to the Fennec Wallet, this Agreement, and with respect to a third party wallet, the applicable terms of service of such third party). We do not have custody or control over the contents of your wallet and have no ability to retrieve or transfer its contents. By connecting your wallet to our Interface, you agree to be bound by this Agreement and all of the terms incorporated herein by reference.
1.2 The Fennec Wallet
The Fennec Wallet allows you to (a) store digital assets; (b) link to third party decentralized applications; (c) view addresses and information that are part of digital asset networks and broadcast transactions; (d) participate in DEX trades and associated DEX activity; and (f) perform any additional services that we may add to the Fennec Wallet from time to time.
Fennec Wallet is an open-source or source-available software that licensed under the AGPL-3.0 license. By using the Fennec Wallet, you understand that you may use a third party distributed version of Fennec Wallet because of the open-source nature of the software. You agree that you are solely responsible for your use of the Fennec Wallet and that we are not responsible or liable for any losses, damages, or claims arising from your use of the Fennec Wallet. You further agree that we are not responsible for any third party distributed version of the Fennec Wallet and that we are not responsible or liable for any losses, damages, or claims arising from your use of any third party distributed version of the Fennec Wallet.
All functionalities of Fennec Wallet are provided by the blockchain, including but not limited to Mixin Network, Ethereum, and other blockchains. By using Fennec Wallet, you agree that we do not have custody or control over the contents of your wallet and have no ability to retrieve or transfer its contents.
1.3 Other Products
We may from time to time in the future offer additional products, and such additional products shall be considered a Product as used herein, regardless of whether such product is specifically defined in this Agreement.

It is your responsibility to determine whether taxes apply to any transactions you initiate or receive and, if so, to report and/or remit the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority.
5.1 ASSUMPTION OF RISK -- GENERALLY
BY ACCESSING AND USING ANY OF OUR PRODUCTS, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU ARE FINANCIALLY AND TECHNICALLY SOPHISTICATED ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND THE INHERENT RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH USING CRYPTOGRAPHIC AND BLOCKCHAIN-BASED SYSTEMS, AND THAT YOU HAVE A WORKING KNOWLEDGE OF THE USAGE AND INTRICACIES OF DIGITAL ASSETS SUCH AS ETHER (ETH), SO-CALLED STABLECOINS, AND OTHER DIGITAL TOKENS SUCH AS THOSE FOLLOWING THE ETHEREUM TOKEN STANDARD (ERC-20).
IN PARTICULAR, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THE MARKETS FOR THESE DIGITAL ASSETS ARE NASCENT AND HIGHLY VOLATILE DUE TO RISK FACTORS INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ADOPTION, SPECULATION, TECHNOLOGY, SECURITY, AND REGULATION. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ANYONE CAN CREATE A TOKEN, INCLUDING FAKE VERSIONS OF EXISTING TOKENS AND TOKENS THAT FALSELY CLAIM TO REPRESENT PROJECTS, AND ACKNOWLEDGE AND ACCEPT THE RISK THAT YOU MAY MISTAKENLY TRADE THOSE OR OTHER TOKENS.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND ACCEPT THAT THE COST AND SPEED OF TRANSACTING WITH CRYPTOGRAPHIC AND BLOCKCHAIN-BASED SYSTEMS SUCH AS MIXIN NETWORK AND ETHEREUM ARE VARIABLE AND MAY INCREASE DRAMATICALLY AT ANY TIME. YOU FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE AND ACCEPT THE RISK OF SELECTING TO TRADE IN EXPERT MODES, WHICH CAN EXPOSE YOU TO POTENTIALLY SIGNIFICANT PRICE SLIPPAGE AND HIGHER COSTS.
IF YOU ACT AS A LIQUIDITY PROVIDER TO THE PROTOCOL THROUGH THE INTERFACE, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOUR DIGITAL ASSETS MAY LOSE SOME OR ALL OF THEIR VALUE WHILE THEY ARE SUPPLIED TO THE PROTOCOL THROUGH THE INTERFACE DUE TO THE FLUCTUATION OF PRICES OF TOKENS IN A TRADING PAIR OR LIQUIDITY POOL.

ACCORDINGLY, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO ASSUME FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ALL OF THE RISKS OF ACCESSING AND USING THE INTERFACE TO INTERACT WITH THE PROTOCOL.**

UPGRADES AND MODIFICATIONS TO THE PROTOCOL ARE GENERALLY MANAGED IN A COMMUNITY-DRIVEN WAY BY HOLDERS OF THE UNI GOVERNANCE TOKEN.

IN NO EVENT SHALL OUR TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL DAMAGES (OTHER THAN AS MAY BE REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW IN CASES INVOLVING PERSONAL INJURY) EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF ONE HUNDRED U.S. DOLLARS ($100.00 USD) OR ITS EQUIVALENT IN THE LOCAL CURRENCY OF THE APPLICABLE JURISDICTION.
THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMER WILL NOT APPLY TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY LAW.
8. Governing Law, Dispute Resolution and Class Action Waivers
8.1 Governing Law
You agree that the laws of Cayman Islands, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, govern this Agreement and any Dispute between you and us. You further agree that each of our Products shall be deemed to be based solely in Cayman Islands, and that although a Product may be available in other jurisdictions, its availability does not give rise to general or specific personal jurisdiction in any forum outside Cayman Islands. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences interstate commerce. Any arbitration conducted pursuant to this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. You agree that the federal and state courts of New York County, New York are the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for court proceedings in the event that this Agreement's binding arbitration clause is found to be unenforceable.
8.2 Dispute Resolution
We will use our best efforts to resolve any potential disputes through informal, good faith negotiations. If a potential dispute arises, you must contact us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can attempt to resolve it without resorting to formal dispute resolution. If we aren't able to reach an informal resolution within sixty days of your email, then you and we both agree to resolve the potential dispute according to the process set forth below.
8.3 Class Action and Jury Trial Waiver
You must bring any and all Disputes against us in your individual capacity and not as a plaintiff in or member of any purported class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or other representative proceeding. This provision applies to class arbitration. You and we both agree to waive the right to demand a trial by jury.
9.1 Entire Agreement
These terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter hereof. This Agreement supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings (if any) relating to the subject matter of the terms.
You may not assign or transfer this Agreement, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer this Agreement without our prior written consent shall be null and void. We may freely assign or transfer this Agreement. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
In connection with your historic or current use of one or more of our Products, we may provide you certain incentives, prizes or rewards for completing certain activities, such as completing a certain number of transactions ("User Rewards"). Details regarding the criteria for earning a reward will be described within the applicable Product or official Pando Proto documentation. Upon satisfaction of the criteria for obtaining a reward and subject to your compliance with the associated rewards terms, this Agreement, and applicable law — to be determined exclusively by Pando Proto — we will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly transfer the earned reward to the digital wallet that you designate or have connected to the applicable Product. We reserve the right to change, modify, discontinue or cancel any rewards programs (including the frequency and criteria for earning such User Rewards), at any time and without notice to you.
9.4 Not Registered with the SEC or Any Other Agency
We are not registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as a national securities exchange or in any other capacity. You understand and acknowledge that we do not broker trading orders on your behalf. We also do not facilitate the execution or settlement of your trades, which occur entirely on public distributed blockchains like Ethereum. As a result, we do not (and cannot) guarantee market best pricing or best execution through our Products or when using our Auto Routing feature, which routes trades across liquidity pools on the Protocol only. Any references in a Product to "best price" does not constitute a representation or warranty about pricing available through such Product, on the Protocol, or elsewhere.
We may provide any notice to you under this Agreement using commercially reasonable means, including using public communication channels. Notices we provide by using public communication channels will be effective upon posting.
If any provision of this Agreement shall be determined to be invalid or unenforceable under any rule, law, or regulation of any local, state, or federal government agency, such provision will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of the provision to the greatest extent possible under any applicable law and the validity or enforceability of any other provision of this Agreement shall not be affected.
