Terms of Service
October 5th, 2021
Codinsight SAS (“Codinsight”), incorporated in France, is the maker of a software program that can be used to manage, control, and interact with the Tezos blockchain (referred as “tezOrus” in this agreement). This agreement is a contract between Codinsight and you (referred as “You” or “Your” in this agreement), a user of tezOrus. By entering into this agreement, You shall have permission to use tezOrus for Your own personal use, subject to certain rights, responsibilities, and obligations.
You own your wallets
tezOrus is a blockchain software that allows You to create and manage different walllets / addresses on the Tezos blockchain. All of them are derived from seed words generated by tezOrus (You can modify). You can also download a tezwallet file, secured by a password, which includes Your private key. This file or seed words can be uploaded to tezOrus platform to load and control Your digital assets.
You must safeguard your seed words and tezwallet file (making several secured copies, including offline copies). In case of loss of Your seed words and tezwallet file, You will not be able to manage digital assets owned by the wallet anymore.
tezOrus never saves Your seed words, tezwallet files or private keys.
tezOrus allows You to fill in one or several public addresses to access public information (such as balances and operations) and get statistics on these addresses in read only mode. In this case, You will not be able to manage digital assets owned by these addresses.
tezOrus also makes it possible to connect Your Ledger hardware wallet to manage crypto assets owned by private keys stored on Your Ledger. This option is the most secured one to manage Your assets.
When You make use of tezOrus, You are taking control of Your digital assets. Codinsight has no technical ability to interact with Your digital wallets and does not ever take possession, control, or own what belongs to You (Your digital assets such as XTZ or FA tokens).
tezOrus is designed to empower its users and that means that You must take responsibility for certain actions, including:
- securing Your seed words, tezwallet file and/or private keys (because Codinsight cannot “recover” it and never has access to it); and,
- ensuring that Your devices that You use tezOrus on are free of viruses, malware, etc.; and,
- obeying Your local laws; and,
- using tezOrus in a lawful manner; and,
- ensuring that all of Your transactions are done with correct blockchain addresses; and,
- keeping Your seed words, tezwallet file and/or private keys confidential and not sharing them with anyone else, including tezOrus customer support (who will never ask You for Your Backup Phrase).
Your Privacy Is Important
tezOrus is designed to protect Your privacy when interacting with blockchains. Your seed words, tezwallet file and private keys are never communicated to Codinsight but certain technical data from tezOrus is transmitted to Codinsight, including telemetry data and logs that may contain error codes or error descriptions, used to improve the application experience and solve technical problems. Codinsight will never share or sell Your personal information to third parties and takes care to minimize logging and access to telemetry data within Codinsight.
To make the most out of tezOrus, permission to access the camera on Your device may be requested. Camera device permissions are only used for recognizing “QR codes” that are commonly used to embed blockchain information into a machine-readable format. Images from Your camera will never be transmitted to Codinsight but the data contained within the QR Codes may be used as part of transactions that You undertake, which may be passed to Codinsight as part of broadcasting Your blockchain transactions.
Blockchains Have Risks
There are many risks associated with digital assets. Codinsight has no control over the blockchains that You can interact with through tezOrus and cannot (and has no ability to) cancel, modify or affect any transaction that You have caused to be broadcasted to any given blockchain network. You should take care to understand the details of the blockchains You choose to interact with as Codinsight has no control or liability to You in relation to these risks.
License to You
tezOrus is licensed to You on a personal, non-exclusive, non-transferrable, non-assignable, royalty-free, worldwide basis. Notwithstanding the foregoing, tezOrus includes open-source code and libraries that are separately licensed and the license in this agreement does not cover the third-party open-source software that is bundled with tezOrus.
tezOrus is provided at no cost to You, “as is”. Codinsight makes no guarantees that its software will always be safe, secure, or error-free, or that it will function without disruptions, delays, or imperfections. To the extent permitted by law, Codinsight DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.
Termination or Suspension of Service for Unlawful Conduct
tezOrus is both installable software and online services. tezOrus contains elements that rely on backend infrastructure run by Codinsight (and possibly other parties such as blockchain explorers) that may be turned off temporarily or permanently without notice due to suspected unlawful conduct or if it is deemed necessary to do so at the discretion of Codinsight.
Some or all of the tezOrus service may not be available in all locations worldwide due to geoblocking or other measures taken by Codinsight to ensure compliance with laws or to improve the quality of service for its users.
tezOrus includes functionality that You have the option of using that may involve third-party services that are owned and run by companies or organizations not related to Codinsight. There may be additional terms or rules applicable to third-party services available through tezOrus, some of which may involve registration(s) on websites or through applications not controlled by Codinsight, and Codinsight shall not be liable for any conduct, actions, or negative consequences that arise as a result of Your use of third-party services in connection with tezOrus.
Notwithstanding the generality of the foregoing, if You make use of third-party services that enable digital asset transfers or financial transfers then You may be at risk of loss due to malfunctions or other issues with third-party services. You shall indemnify Codinsight, and the officers, contractors, employees, and other personnel of Codinsight, against any claims in relation to third-party services, whether brought by You or another party, where the claim concerns Your use or misuse of a third-party service.
Limitation of Liability
