4. CONFIDENTIALITY OF THE TRANSMISSION OF INFORMATION OVER THE INTERNET
5. Liqui DOES NOT PROVIDE INVESTING ADVICE
We are an execution-only service and do not advise on the merits of any particular transactions or their taxation consequences. In entering into any transaction on the Platform, you represent that you have been, are, and will be solely responsible for making your own independent appraisal and investigations into the risks of the transaction. You represent that you have sufficient knowledge, market sophistication, professional advice and experience to make your own evaluation of the merits and risks of any transaction. We give you no warranty as to the suitability of the cryptocurrencies traded under these Terms and assume no fiduciary duty in our relations with you.
If at any point Liqui or its representatives do provide trading recommendations, market commentary, or any other information, the act of doing so is incidental to your relationship with us and imposes no obligation of truth or due diligence on behalf of Liqui or its representatives. We give no representation, warranty, or guarantee as to the accuracy or completeness of any such information or as to the tax consequences of any transaction.
6. 51% AND OTHER CRYPTOCURRENCY ATTACKS
Liqui makes every commercially reasonable attempt to help prevent and mitigate cryptocurrency attacks. If Liqui is able to confirm that a cryptocurrency active on the Platform has been compromised or is under attack, Liqui may immediately halt trading, deposits, and withdrawals for such cryptocurrency. If it is determined that such an attack caused the cryptocurrency to greatly decrease in value, Liqui may discontinue trade activity on such cryptocurrency entirely. Resolutions concerning deposits, withdrawals, and user balances for an attacked cryptocurrency will be determined on a case-by-case basis. Liqui makes no representation and does not warrant the safety of the Platform and is not liable for any lost value or stolen property, whether or not Liqui was negligent in providing the proper security.
If the value of the assets in your Account falls below the maintenance margin requirement or Liqui determines, at its sole discretion, that your Account appears to be in danger of defaulting on a loan, Liqui may seize and liquidate any or all of your positions and assets on any balance in your Account in order to settle your debt to lenders. If, after your positions and assets are liquidated, your account still contains insufficient funds to settle your debts to lenders, you will be responsible for any additional funds owed. Intentionally defaulting on a loan may result in Liqui reporting your activities to authorities and/or in legal prosecution.
7. THIRD PARTY CONTENT
Liqui and its users may provide third party content on the Site and may provide links to web pages and content that are not owned or controlled by Liqui (collectively the "Third Party Content") as a service to those interested in this information.

You acknowledge and agree that Liqui is not responsible or liable in any manner for any Third Party Content and undertakes no responsibility to update or review any Third Party Content. You acknowledge that your use of such Third Party Content is at your own risk. Your business dealings or correspondence with, or participation in promotions of, any third parties, and any terms, conditions, warranties, or representations associated with such dealings or promotions, are solely between you and such third parties.

11. ELECTRONIC TRADING TERMS
A transaction on the Platform may fail for several reasons, including but not limited to change in seller prices, unspecified lot size or unanticipated technical difficulties. We make no representation or warrant that any transaction will be executed properly. Liqui is under no circumstances liable for any loss or injury suffered by a failure of a transaction to complete properly. Further, Liqui is in no way responsible for notifying you of a transaction failure. The User has full responsibility to determine and inquire into the failure of any transaction the User initiates.
In the event that you receive any data, information or software other than that which you are entitled to receive pursuant to these Terms, you will immediately notify us and will not use, in any way whatsoever, such data, information or software. If you request a withdrawal of funds from your Account and we cannot comply with it without closing some part of your open positions, we will not comply with the request until you have closed sufficient positions to allow you to make the withdrawal.
We shall be entitled to act for you upon instructions given by or purporting to be given by you or any person authorized on your behalf without further inquiry as to the genuineness, authority, or identity of the person giving or purporting to give such instructions, provided such instruction is accompanied by correct information about your Account.
12. PERMANENT WITHDRAWAL OF SERVICE
Liqui may (a) suspend or terminate your access to the Services, and (b) deactivate or cancel your Account, or if Liqui reasonably suspects you of using your Account in furtherance of illegal activity. You will be permitted to transfer cryptocurrency associated with your Account for ninety (90) days after Account deactivation or cancellation unless such transfer is otherwise prohibited. If any transaction is in a pending state at the time your Account is cancelled or suspended, such transaction may be cancelled and/or refunded as appropriate. You may not cancel your Account to evade an investigation or avoid paying any amounts otherwise due to Liqui. Upon cancellation of your Account, you authorize Liqui to cancel or suspend pending transactions and, after providing written notice to the you, return the funds associated with such transactions to your wallet address. In the event that you or Liqui terminates this agreement or your access to the Services, or deactivates or cancels your Account, you will remain liable for all amounts due hereunder. In the event that a technical problem causes system outage or account errors, Liqui may temporarily suspend access to your Account until the problem is resolved.
13. OWNERSHIP OF FUNDS
You hereby certify to us that any funds used by you in connection with the Platform are either owned by you or that you are validly authorized to carry out transactions using such funds, and that all transactions initiated with your Account are for your own account and not on behalf of any other person or entity.

LIQUI PROVIDES NO GUARANTEE AS TO THE PERFORMANCE OR THE UNINTERRUPTED AVAILABILITY OF THE SERVICES. THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS," "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED.

LQUI DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES AND THE INFORMATION CONTAINED THEREIN ARE ACCURATE, COMPLETE, RELIABLE, CURRENT OR ERROR-FREE. LIQUI WILL MAKE REASONABLE EFFORTS TO ENSURE THAT TRANSACTIONS ON THE PLATFORM ARE PROCESSED IN A TIMELY FASHION, BUT MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES WITH RESEPCT TO THE AMOUNT OF TIME NEEDED TO PROCESS SUCH TRANSACTIONS.
