The Website, or its owners, will not be responsible for any losses, damages, or claims arising from events falling within the scope of the following seven categories:
(1) eBitcoin (eBTC) should never be held or stored in centralized or decentralized token exchanges. Token Exchanges are defined as “Exchanges” for a reason. They are a location to exchange tokens. They are not defined as a short-term or long-term storage medium or facility.
(2) Mistakes made by the user of any eBitcoin-related software or service, e.g. forgotten passwords, payments sent to wrong Ethereum addresses, and accidental deletion of wallets.
(3) The use of eBitcoin (eBTC) itself could lead to loss of money and/ or value over short or long periods of time. Users of eBitcoin (eBTC) should expect value to experience major volatility at any given time. The information published on the Website cannot guarantee that users of eBitcoin (eBTC) will not lose value.
(4) Software problems of the Website and/or any eBitcoin-related software or service, e.g. corrupted wallet file, incorrectly constructed transactions, unsafe cryptographic libraries, malware affecting the Website, and/or any eBitcoin-related software or service.
