Last update: September 2023
1.2. These Terms are a legal agreement between you (the “User” or “you”) and RIV Technologies FZE, a company incorporated under the laws of UAE with headquarters in Office 613, Floor 03, The Offices 3 – One Central, Dubai World Trade Center (the “Company” or “we”).
1.3. RIV Technologies FZE forms part of RIV Group, whose parent company is RIV Capital LP SCSp, a limited partnership holding established in Luxembourg with the primary objective to enhance its shareholder’s wealth through capital investments.
1.4. The App is a mobile app that provides the User with a non-custodial wallet to sell, receive and manage tokens, including cryptocurrencies and other token-based digital assets based on DLT (collectively hereinafter “Tokens”) within the Cøsmos and Ethereum ecosystems.
1.5. THE COMPANY AND THE APP ARE NOT FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS, EXCHANGES, OR ANY SIMILAR REGULATED ENTITIES. OUR APP IS INTENDED ONLY TO FACILITATE PURCHASES OR SALES OF TOKENS BETWEEN USERS. WE ARE NOT A PARTY TO ANY AGREEMENT BETWEEN USERS. WE DO NOT, IN ANY CASE, HAVE AN ACTIVE ROLE IN, OR CONTROL OF, THE TRANSACTIONS OR THE CONTRACTUAL RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN USERS. ANY TRANSACTION INVOLVING A FINANCIAL INSTRUMENT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN ON THE APP.
1.7. Tokens available on the App may be considered securities under the laws of some countries. By registering and signing up, you represent and warrant that you are not a resident, domiciliary, or otherwise connected with any such country and that you will not use our services in violation of any securities laws. If you are found to violate this representation, we reserve the right to terminate your account and exclude you from any Token sales.

You will be notified at least thirty (30) calendar days prior to any changes in these Terms taking effect.

If you do not agree with the Amendments, you may terminate your contractual relationship with the Company (provided that there are no outstanding obligations on your side to be performed by you to the benefit of the Company or the Company’s beneficiaries), but you must stop using any features and do not access the App or use any related services.

3.2. The App also allows you to store your Tokens in a full-control personal wallet we provide you (the “Riv Wallet”). Note that your account on the App does not store cryptocurrency or digital assets on your behalf but allows you to store cryptocurrency or digital assets, retaining complete control of the wallet and its private keys. Therefore, it is not a “custodial crypto wallet.” The Riv Wallet balance in your account only shows the number of Tokens you can manage at any moment.
3.3. Furthermore, the Riv Wallet offers you additional features and services, such as support for multiple cryptocurrencies, integration with exchanges and other platforms, and managing multiple accounts and addresses.

(xii) Use the App for any purpose in breach of these Terms.
3.8. Tokens that we deem inappropriate, disruptive, or illegal are prohibited on the App. We reserve the right –but we do not have the obligation– to determine the appropriateness and/or lawfulness of Tokens on the App and remove any Tokens at any time. If we become aware that you hold or sell a Token in violation of these Terms, we may take corrective actions, as appropriate, including but not limited to removing the Token or deleting your account.

4. RIV WALLET
4.1. By signing up for the App, you will get access to a unique Riv Wallet which provides for the storage of Tokens and their use on the App within the Cøsmos ecosystem.
4.2. Please note that the Riv Wallet and the App Account are neither bank accounts nor any kind of payment instrument.
4.3. Users within the App may fully manage their Tokens, but we do not offer any exchange service between cryptocurrencies, digital assets, fiat money, or similar. Any deposit or withdrawal happens and is memorized and confirmed by third-party blockchain services (“Third-Party Blockchain Service”) which involve transaction fees. We neither own nor control Third-Parties Blockchain Services and any Third-Party Wallets nor any other third-party site, product, or service not specifically identified as proprietary, licensed to, or provided by the Company. Therefore, the Company will not be liable for the acts or omissions of any such third parties, nor will the Company be liable for any damage that you may suffer as a result of your transactions or any other interaction with any such third parties. Note that each Third-Party Blockchain Service and Third-Party Wallets may have its terms and conditions and that you may be required to accept those terms before using their related service.
4.4. In addition to the Transaction Fees due to the Company for the provision of its services to the Users, each deposit and withdrawal of Tokens are subject to fees allocated to cover operational costs related to Third-Party Blockchain Services. Those fees will be shown to the Client at the time of deposit/withdrawal before being prompted to accept the transaction.
4.5. The Company is only a service provider that makes available its App to the Users to facilitate the storage and sale and purchase of Tokens; the Company is not a party to any agreement between the Users. As such, YOU AGREE NOT TO HOLD US LIABLE FOR ANY KIND OF LIABILITY OR DAMAGES CAUSED BY A TOKEN TRANSFER, OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE PRICE, OR AN ACT PERFORMED BY ONE OF THE PARTIES TO A TRANSACTION, NOR WE PROVIDE ANY KIND OF WARRANTY. Therefore, any complaint must be addressed directly to the other party/parties involved in the transaction.
4.6. It is the sole responsibility of the Users to pay any taxes deriving from the sale of Tokens and, in general, from their use of the App.
4.7. Note that if you are offering Tokens or are involved in App transactions as a business activity or otherwise in the form of a “professional” business or not occasionally (i.e., you are not operating as a consumer), specific laws and taxes (such as the issuance of
invoices, payment of VAT, or mandatory consumers’ protection laws) may apply to you, to your business, and your earnings. We do not ensure the User’s compliance with those laws and obligations. You hereby acknowledge, represent, and agree to be in compliance with such laws or obligations, and you will be solely responsible for such compliance. You will hold harmless and indemnify us for any damages that you may cause to us, other Users, or third parties.
4.8. Since the Company is not part of any transaction between Users, it is not responsible for, nor will provide, any refund related to transactions carried out on its App. Any request should be addressed solely to the User. Further, you acknowledge that transactions on the blockchain are irreversible. Therefore, specific transactions cannot be reversed. We cannot cancel, revert, or modify any transaction on the Cøsmos ecosystem or other blockchains. Except as otherwise decided by the User or among the Users in their negotiations or as otherwise provided by mandatory consumers’ protection laws (if applicable to a specific transaction), all sales or purchases made by the Users are final and non-refundable.
4.9. In the event of a dispute between Users and between Users and any third party, you agree that the Company has no obligation to be involved. In such event, you release the Company, its affiliates, and their respective officers, employees, agents, and successors from any claims, demands, and damages of any kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes and/or the App or related services.
5.1. Before a User can activate their Account or gain access to the App, the User is required to provide all the necessary information and/or documents that the Company deems, in its sole discretion, suitable for maintaining compliance with the anti-money laundering laws (“AML”) or any laws, regulations and internal policies.
5.2. During the Account verification process, the User undertakes to provide all the documents requested by the Company. In particular, the User agrees to provide the Company, or another subject delegated to carry out the AML obligations prescribed by law on our behalf, with updated, accurate and complete information as required by the registration process, as well as to maintain update this information.
5.3. If we discover any activity that we consider suspicious or not fully transparent concerning the use of the account, we may request further information or documentation from the User. In this case, we may also freeze all transactions pending the appropriate checks of the account. The Company reserves the right to block, suspend and terminate the Accounts of Users for which the due diligence process (“KYC”) has not been completed, despite all efforts by the Company to contact the User and solicit the completion of the process.
5.4. The User acknowledges and declares to understand that the documents, data, photos, and other informative material collected during the Account registration and verification procedures are subject to the obligation of conservation by the Company or a third-party supplier authorized, under the AML laws.
5.5. The Company applies regular checks on User Accounts and may request information about the origin of their Tokens.

6. ASSUMPTION OF RISKS

6.2. You understand that the prices of Tokens may be extremely volatile. Fluctuations in the price or value of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the value of your Tokens. We cannot guarantee, and therefore, we cannot be held liable– that any Token will not lose or gain value (or have any economic value whatsoever) or have any kind of functionality or fitness for a particular purpose.
6.3. You also understand there are risks associated with transactions in the App, including, but not limited to, the effects of varying laws and regulations, the risk of hardware, operating system, and Internet connections, the risk of virus introduction, and the risk that third parties may obtain unauthorized access to your personal information. YOU ACCEPT AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY COMMUNICATION FAILURES, DISRUPTIONS, ERRORS, DISTORTIONS, OR DELAYS IN WHICH YOU CAN BE INVOLVED, HOWEVER CAUSED.
