1.3 Registration of Vibrant Account.
You must register for a Vibrant account to use the Vibrant Services (a "Vibrant Account"). By using a Vibrant Account, you agree that you will use the Services only for yourself, and not on behalf of any third party, unless you have obtained prior approval from Vibrant. During registration for your Vibrant Account, you agree to provide us with the information we request for the purposes of identity verification and the detection of fraud, and you permit us to keep a record of such information. Your access to one or more Services may be contingent on your ability to successfully satisfy our onboarding requirements, including providing any additional information we may request from time to time. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your Vibrant Account if you provide inaccurate, untrue, or incomplete information, if your account is reasonably suspected of activity that violates this Agreement, or if you fail to comply with the account registration requirements. You agree that you won’t disclose your Vibrant Account credentials to anyone, and that you will notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your Vibrant Account. You are responsible for all activities that occur under your Vibrant Account, whether or not you know about them. We may, in our sole discretion, refuse to open a Vibrant Account, or limit the number of Vibrant Accounts that you may hold, or limit your ability to access or use certain Services.
To access the Vibrant Services, you must have the necessary equipment (such as a smartphone or laptop) and the associated telecommunication service subscriptions to access the Internet. The Services can be accessed directly using the Vibrant Site. Although we strive to provide you with excellent service, we do not represent that the Vibrant Site or Services will be available without interruption. You acknowledge and agree that from time to time the Services may be inaccessible or inoperable for any reason, including without limitation: (i) equipment or technology malfunctions; (ii) periodic maintenance procedures or repairs which Vibrant may undertake from time to time; or (iii) causes beyond the control of Vibrant or which are not reasonably foreseeable by Vibrant. If for any reason the Services are inaccessible or inoperable, you agree to hold harmless Vibrant for any impact this inaccessibility or inoperability may have upon you or your use of the Services.
2.1 Vibrant Wallet.
In connection with a Vibrant Account, Vibrant will provide you with an account featuring one or more cryptographic private and public key pairs on the “Stellar Network,” (a distributed ledger network powered by open-source protocol, the reference implementation for which is found here: https://github.com/stellar/stellar-core) and a graphical user interface to allow you to view information about your Stellar Network account and generate, sign, and submit transactions to the Stellar Network (the “Vibrant Wallet”). The Stellar Network is not a part of the Services defined herein, however, the Vibrant Wallet will enable you to undertake certain actions and activities on the Stellar Network. An account on the Stellar Network enables the account holder to hold and transfer digital asset balances, undertake certain transactions, interact with smart contracts, and otherwise transact through the Stellar Network. Activities on the Stellar Network are powered by a network of independent servers and are not controlled by us or any other single entity. We do not and cannot guarantee the successful operation, up-time, security, or functioning of the Stellar Network. “Lumens” (sometimes referred to as “XLM”) are the native digital asset of the Stellar Network and are used to submit operations, create accounts, and serve as a bridge currency between different assets. Since we do not control the Stellar Network and cannot control activity and data on the network, we cannot control the activities of you or third parties who may develop or transact on the network, validate transactions on the network, or use the network. We cannot prevent, erase, reverse, hide, fix, or otherwise change any transaction submitted on the Stellar Network. All activity and data on the Stellar Network are permanent and public.
2.2 Use of the Stellar Network.
You agree and acknowledge that any access or use by you of the Stellar Network is made solely at your own risk and that we bear no responsibility or liability for your use of the Stellar Network, including, without limitation, for any harm, loss, or damages arising from transactions sent to wrong Stellar addresses, incorrectly constructed transactions, software and network problems, technical failures, unauthorized access to any accounts, legal and regulatory matters and consequences, or fraud conducted by third parties. Additionally, you agree and acknowledge that you will not, in connection with our Services, use the Stellar Network: (i) in a manner that violates any applicable federal, state, local, or international law or regulation; (ii) to fund terrorism or other criminal activity; (iii) to circumvent any export restrictions or economic sanctions; or (iv) to engage in unlawful money transmission, currency exchanging, or money laundering.
2.3 Digital Assets.
The Vibrant Wallet enables you to store, view, transfer, and otherwise interact with your digital assets on the Stellar Network. However, we cannot and do not guarantee that the Vibrant Wallet and its related applications will display all digital assets capable of being held in an account on the Stellar Network. In providing the Vibrant Wallet, Vibrant retains the sole right to select which digital assets from the Stellar Network will be displayed to you via the Services. Although it serves as the native digital asset on the Stellar Network, neither XLM nor any other digital asset held in your Vibrant Wallet is legal tender, backed by any government, or subject to protections or insurance provided by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) or the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (“SIPC”). The fiat value of XLM or other digital assets held in your Vibrant Wallet may be highly volatile and may lose all value, even if such digital assets purport to track the value of real-world currency. Vibrant does not control, and is not responsible for, the value of any digital assets held in your Vibrant Wallet and makes no representation, warranty, guarantee, or recommendation, express or implied, of its value. You agree to conduct independent due diligence on any digital asset you may acquire using the Vibrant Wallet and agree and acknowledge that any purchase of digital assets by you or on your behalf is made voluntarily, willfully, and exclusively at your own risk. We may impose limits on the total value of digital assets you may hold in your Vibrant Wallet at any time. When such limits are imposed, the quantity and value of your digital asset holdings in the Stellar account associated with your Vibrant Wallet may differ from that which is displayed on the Vibrant Wallet interface.
2.4 Vibrant Wallet Credentials.
When creating a Vibrant Wallet, the Services generate cryptographic private and public key pairs which will comprise your account on the Stellar Network. When setting up your Vibrant Account you must also enroll in the “Key Recovery Services.” With the Key Recovery Services, each Vibrant Wallet is provisioned with three associated private keys with the following weights: (i) your private key, which is encrypted and stored locally on your phone, will possess a weight of twenty (“User Key”) (ii) a private key stored by Vibrant, with a weight of ten (“Recovery Key A”); and (iii) a private key stored by a key recovery service provider (a “KRSP”), with a weight of ten (“Recovery Key B”). As such, by using the Vibrant Wallet, you agree to create a separate account with, and to be bound by the terms and conditions of, the applicable KRSP. Recovery Key A and Recovery Key B are for use exclusively in connection with the Key Recovery Services facilitated by a KRSP, as described below. You acknowledge that Vibrant only controls one of the private keys for your account on the Stellar Network, and that we do not possess sufficient credentials to take any unilateral action with respect to such account or any balances reflected in such account. We will never take action to recover your account unless we receive a request for action that we reasonably believe was submitted by you and has been confirmed by a phone number or email that you have previously linked to your account. You agree to store, outside of the services, a backup of your User Key and all related Vibrant Wallet credentials, including any passphrases, mnemonic phrases, identifiers, backup phrases, private keys, and network addresses. If you do not maintain a backup of your User Key and Vibrant Wallet data outside of the Services, you will not be able to access the digital asset balance associated with your Vibrant Wallet account on the Stellar Network in the event that Services or the Vibrant Wallet are disrupted or we discontinue or no longer offer some or all of the Services. The Key Recovery Services are provided at our discretion and should not be relied upon for recovery of funds. You acknowledge and agree that the Key Recovery Services may not function reliably, accurately, securely, or effectively, and that we or a KRSP may lose or otherwise be unable to provide or use Recovery Key A or Recovery B at any time for any reason. We will not maintain nor are we responsible for maintaining any data on your behalf. You agree and acknowledge that you are solely responsible for the secure storage of any digital assets in your Vibrant Wallet, your User Key, and any other related private keys in your possession. You agree that in no event will Vibrant be liable for the security or control of any digital assets, User Keys, recovery keys, or other credentials held in or related to the Vibrant Wallet.
2.5 Vibrant Wallet Transactions.
The Vibrant Wallet provides an interface that enables you to automatically generate, sign, and submit transactions to the Stellar Network simply by using the buttons, links, and other features provided within the Vibrant Wallet. The Vibrant Wallet will use the private key information contained locally on your device to sign the transactions you initiate via the Vibrant Wallet.In order to conduct any transaction on the Stellar Network via the Vibrant Wallet, the transaction must: (i) contain sufficient network transaction fees – denominated in XLM – for the Stellar Network to process the transaction, and (ii) be signed by private key or keys with a total weight of twenty. As such, you may conduct any transactions from the Vibrant Wallet solely by use of your User Key, since your User Key possesses a weight of twenty. Neither Vibrant nor any KRSP may unilaterally conduct any transactions associated with the Vibrant Wallet, since the Recovery Keys each possess a weight of only ten. Once a Vibrant Wallet transaction has been signed by a key weight of twenty and submitted to the Stellar Network for confirmation, you cannot cancel, reverse, or change the transaction. The transaction may be suspended, delayed, redirected, reversed, or canceled at any time for any reason or no reason by the Stellar Network, and Vibrant will bear no responsibility or liability resulting from any such suspension, delay, redirect, reversal, or cancellation.
Vibrant currently provides each Vibrant Wallet with sufficient XLM to cover Stellar Network transaction fees for transactions initiated via the Vibrant Wallet and the minimum reserves necessary for maintaining and adding trustlines or signers to the Stellar Network account tied to your Vibrant Account (“XLM Reserve”) . However, in the future we may no longer do so, in which case you will be responsible for such Stellar Network transaction fees and the minimum reserves. The XLM Reserve may only be used to maintain the existence and functionality of the Stellar Network account associated with your Vibrant Account and may not be used for any other purpose, extracted from such Stellar Network account, or merged into another account. The Vibrant Wallet itself does not currently charge a fee for the Services or any transactions you may conduct via the Services, however, we reserve the right to do so in the future, and in such case we will display to you any applicable fees prior to you incurring the fee. The issuers of non-XLM digital assets that you may use in connection with the Vibrant Wallet may charge fees for deposit, withdrawal, or other services.
3. THIRD-PARTY SERVICES.
3.1 Third-Party Services.
The Service provides, or third parties may provide, links to other World Wide Web or accessible sites, applications, content, or resources (“Third-Party Services”). We provide these links or integrations only as a convenience, and we do not have control over their content, do not warrant or endorse, and are not responsible for the availability or legitimacy of, or the content, products, or services on or accessible from, those websites, services, resources, or links displayed therein. We make no warranties or representations, express or implied, about such Third-Party Services, the third parties they are owned and operated by, the information contained on them, or the suitability of their products or services. You acknowledge sole responsibility for and assume all risk arising from your use of any third-party websites, applications, services, or resources.
Among other Third-Party Services, we may provide you with the ability to interact with Anchors on the Stellar Network from within the Vibrant Site. An “Anchor” is a participant on the Stellar Network that: (i) issues digital assets on the Stellar Network that are tied to the value or ownership of a real currency or other real-life asset – e.g., a dollar-denominated token; and (ii) offers eligible persons the ability to convert between a real currency or asset and its correlated digital asset.
3.3 Anchor Services.
You acknowledge that any services provided by an Anchor which you can access from within the Vibrant Wallet, such as the ability to convert between real currency and digital assets denominated in real currency, are the sole responsibility of such Anchor, and not Vibrant. Your use of any such Anchor services will be subject to the terms and conditions specified by the Anchor. Vibrant makes no representations, warranties, or endorsements regarding the services of any Anchor, and Vibrant expressly disclaims responsibility for any such services. You accept that there are risks with using the services of an Anchor, including without limitation, risks related to loss of funds, loss of access to digital assets, unavailability of relevant Stellar Network functionality, software bugs or errors in the Anchor’s services, inability to purchase, redeem, or convert digital assets, and risks related to the use or storage of any data or information you share with the Anchor. You agree that Vibrant is not responsible for any loss or delay in accessing your digital assets when such loss or delay occurs in connection with an Anchor’s services. We (or the Anchor) may cap the maximum amount of real currency or digital assets that you may convert via an Anchor’s services accessed through the Vibrant Wallet, and we (or the Anchor) may increase or decrease this cap in our sole discretion without notice to you.
3.4 Stellar Network DEX.
The Stellar Network has a built-in decentralized exchange trading protocol (the “DEX”), the developer guide for which is published here: https://www.stellar.org/developers/guides/concepts/exchange.html. This means that, in addition to tracking an account holder’s digital asset balances on the Stellar Network, an account on the Stellar Network also stores such account holder’s bids and asks among all digital asset pairs on the network. The DEX programmatically matches bids and asks to facilitate peer-to-peer exchanges. Although the DEX may be accessible via the Vibrant Wallet, Vibrant is solely a graphical user interface for the DEX designed for your convenience, is not affiliated with the DEX, and is not responsible for the functionality, reliability, and security of the DEX. All DEX transactions are entirely between holders of accounts on the Stellar Network – no intermediation by Vibrant or any other third party is required for settlement, matching, exchange, or transfer of assets traded via the DEX. Via the Vibrant Wallet and related Services, we may provide you with certain features that enable you to more efficiently conduct trades using the DEX. We reserve the right to select which trading pairs we may present to you from within the Vibrant Services, and we make no guarantee that we will present (or continue to present) any particular trading pair. We may, at our sole discretion: (i) require you to provide certain information prior to or to continue using the Services related to the DEX; and (ii) limit the amounts, sizes, or values of DEX transactions offered to you via the Services.
3.5 Key Recovery Services.
As described above, your use of a Vibrant Wallet is dependent on your agreement to use a KRSP to store Recovery Key B and to provide the Key Recovery Services in the event you lose access to your User Key. Solely in the event that you lose access to your User Key and upon your explicit request, Vibrant and your KRSP will each use their respective Recovery Key to help recover the assets in your account. Vibrant and your KRSP each represents and warrants that it will not use its respective key for any other purpose. You acknowledge and agree that your KRSP may require you to provide certain identification information, to prove you have control or access to certain email accounts or phone numbers, or to furnish such other information as the KRSP may require in order to validate your authority to request the Key Recovery Services. The Vibrant Wallet currently supports Ultra Stellar as a KRSP. Ultra Stellar is an independent commercial entity trading as Lobstr and unaffiliated with Vibrant. When you register for the Key Recovery Services for your Vibrant Wallet, you must agree to create a separate account with, and be bound to the terms and conditions of, the applicable KRSP. The Lobstr terms and conditions are available here https://recoverysigner.lobstr.co/terms. Other KRSPs may be made available in the future, but you will not be automatically enrolled in any KRSP’s service without your prior consent.

To the extent possible, Vibrant intends to update the Services to account for any advances in cryptography and to incorporate additional security measures, but does not guarantee or otherwise represent full security of the system. By using the Service or accessing Content, you acknowledge these inherent risks.
4.6 Third Party Risks.
You understand that conducting transactions that involve the DEX, Anchors, or any KRSP will inherently carry risks associated with third parties that Vibrant does not and cannot control. You understand and acknowledge that the ability to transact with the DEX, with any Anchor, or with any KRSP via the Services does not mean that Vibrant endorses, supports, recommends, or makes any other representation regarding such Anchor, the DEX, or such KRSP. Unless expressly stated otherwise in this Agreement, Vibrant disclaims any and all liability arising from your use of Third-Party Services, your interaction with third parties, or any transactions you may conduct with third parties, whether via the Vibrant Site, the Services, or otherwise.
4.7 Volatility of Digital Assets.
You understand that the value of cryptocurrencies and blockchain tokens, including XLM and digital assets issued on the Stellar Network, are highly volatile due to many factors including but not limited to adoption, speculation, technology, and security risks, and you could lose all value. You also acknowledge that the cost of transacting on such technologies is variable and may increase at any time causing impact to any activities taking place on the Stellar Network. You acknowledge these risks and represent that Vibrant cannot be held liable for price fluctuations or increased costs.
4.8 Application Security.

This Agreement and any action related to it will be governed by the laws of the state of California in the United States, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. If you are a User located in the United States or Canada, the terms in the “Special Arbitration Provision for United States or Canada Users” section below apply to you. If you are not located in the United States or Canada, you agree that you will resolve any claim you have with us relating to, arising out of, or in any way in connection with this Agreement, us, or our Services exclusively in the state courts located in the City and County of San Francisco, California, or federal court for the Northern District of California, and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating all such grievances.
9.2 Special Arbitration Provision for United States or Canada Users.
If you are a user located in the United States or Canada, you and Vibrant agree to arbitrate any disputes, controversies, or claims (any of the foregoing, a “Claim”) arising from this Agreement or relating to the Services. ARBITRATION PREVENTS YOU FROM SUING IN COURT OR FROM HAVING A JURY TRIAL. You and Vibrant agree to the following:
i. NEITHER YOU NOR Vibrant WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE A CLAIM IN COURT OR TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL ON A CLAIM, OR TO ENGAGE IN PRE-ARBITRATION DISCOVERY;
ii. Arbitration will only decide your or our Claim, and you may not consolidate or join the Claims of other persons who have similar Claims. YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR MEMBER OF ANY CLASS OF CLAIMANTS, OR AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, PERTAINING TO ANY CLAIM COVERED OR ARISING FROM THESE TERMS OF SERVICE OR YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES;
iii. Each party will notify the other of any dispute within thirty (30) days of when the cause of dispute arises; and
iv. Each party will attempt informal resolution prior to any demand for arbitration.
If arbitration is chosen by any party, the following will apply:
i. Arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules, unless your aggregated Claims are for $250,000 or more, in which case its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules shall apply;
ii. Arbitration will occur in San Francisco, California, and the arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law consistent with the Federal - Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1 through 16, including but not limited to applicable statutes of limitation, and will honor claims of privilege recognized at law;
iii. The state or federal courts in San Francisco County, California have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals of an arbitration award and over any suit between the parties not subject to arbitration;
iv. In any arbitration, the parties will not seek discovery from each other, and the arbitrator will not allow parties to engage in discovery; rather, each party will disclose the evidence supporting their positions at a mutually agreeable time and date prior to the final hearing;
v. At the request of either party, all arbitration proceedings will be conducted in the utmost secrecy and, in such case, all documents, testimony, and records will be received, heard, and maintained by the arbitrators in secrecy under seal, available for inspection only by the parties, their respective attorneys, and their respective experts, consultants, or witnesses who have agreed, in advance and in writing, to receive all such information as confidential to be used solely for purposes of the arbitration; and
vi. Other than class procedures and remedies discussed herein, the arbitrator has the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court.
If the requirement to arbitrate and/or the prohibition against class actions and other Claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then that language will be deemed to have been removed from this Agreement and the remaining obligations relating to arbitration will continue in full force and effect.
10.1 No Third-Party Beneficiaries.

Any failure or delay of Vibrant to assert a right or provision under this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
