- Your use of, or conduct in connection with, our Services;

- Violation of any rights of any other person or entity.
2. If you are obligated to indemnify us, we will have the right, in our sole discretion, to control any action or proceeding (at our expense) and determine whether we will pursue a settlement of any action or proceeding.
No Liability for Third-Party Services and Content
1. In using our Services, you may view content or utilize services provided by third parties, including links to web pages and services of such parties (“Third-Party Content”). We do not control, endorse, or adopt any Third-Party Content and will have no responsibility for Third-Party Content including, without limitation, material that may be misleading, incomplete, erroneous, offensive, indecent, or otherwise objectionable in your jurisdiction. In addition, your dealings or correspondence with such third parties are solely between you and the third parties. We are not responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred because of any such dealings and you understand that your use of Third-Party Content, and your interactions with third parties, is at your own risk.
1. You need to use a Mindplex Reputation Escrow provided by us to utilize your MPXR tokens which are non liquid and non transferable. To access the Mindplex Reputation Escrow, you need to create a user account (Account) on Mindplex. On the other hand, to utilize the MPX token, which is the liquid and transferable token, you can create your preferred blockchain wallet independently of the service and then connect it with Mindplex Escrow. The Mindplex Escrow will then provide a deposit or withdraw service to or from our platform, only from the Mindplex platform. When you create an Account, you are strongly advised to take the following precautions, as failure to do so may result in loss of access to, and/or control over, your Account:
(a) Provide accurate and truthful information;
(b) Maintain the security of your Account by protecting your Account password and access to your computer and your Account;
(c) Promptly notify us if you discover or otherwise suspect any security breaches related to your Account.
2. You hereby accept and acknowledge that you take responsibility for all activities that occur under your Account and accept all risks of any authorized or unauthorized access to your Account, to the maximum extent permitted by law.
3. You acknowledge and understand that cryptography is a progressing field. Advances in code cracking or technical advances such as but not limited to the development of quantum computers may present risks to the Services that you use and your Account, which could result in the theft or loss of your property. By using the Service or accessing Mindplex Content, you acknowledge these inherent risks.
1. As described in more detail below, the Services, among other things, provide software that facilitates the submission of Mindplex transaction data to the user’s wallet without requiring you to access the native blockchain command line interface.
2. Account and Private Keys.
Should you agree to create a User Account through our Service, we will create an account on the Mindplex Reputation Escrow after you connect your preferred wallet. We will have every and all right to manage your MPXR token, which is your reputation token on the Mindplex ecosystem. The management here includes; reward (issuing) MPXR, punish (burning) MPXR, temporarily locking MPXR during voting procedures, or deciding token transfer time from your user account to the Mindplex Reputation Escrow (from Offchain to our smart contract). In the case where you delete your Mindplex User Account, your MPXR tokens will still stay in the Mindplex Reputation Escrow so you can use them in other ecosystems.
As for your MPX token, you can use your preferred wallet which should generate a cryptographic private and public key pair that are provided solely to you and completely owned by you. However, after connecting that wallet to our service, we do not store passwords or Private Keys for you. We never have access to your Private Key and do not custody any Private Keys on your behalf, and therefore, assume no responsibility for the management of the Private Key tied to your MPX Account. The Private Key uniquely matches the Account name and must be used in connection with the Account to authorize the transfer of MPX from that Account. You are solely responsible for maintaining the security of your Private Keys. You must keep your Private Key access information secure. Failure to do so may result in the loss of control of MPX associated with your Account.
3. No Password Retrieval.
We do not receive or store your Blockchain Account password or Private Keys. Your Private Key is your own and you are solely responsible for their safekeeping. We cannot assist you with Account password retrieval, reset, or recovery. You are solely responsible for remembering your Account password. If you have not safely stored a backup of any Account and password pairs maintained in your Account, you accept and acknowledge that any MPX you have associated with such an Account will become permanently inaccessible if you do not have your Wallet Account password. For the MPXR token which is kept in our Mindplex Reputation Escrow, we recommend that you store your Mindplex User Account in a secure location. However, if you lose this (Your Mindplex User Account), we will be able to assist you with account password retrieval, reset, or recovery. This might help you to reclaim your MPXR token from our Mindplex Reputation Escrow. However, we will not guarantee a hundred percent MPXR token recovery in every case.
All proposed Mindplex smart contract transactions must be confirmed and recorded in the Polygon and Ethereum blockchain (a peer-to-peer network), which is not owned, controlled, or operated by us. The Polygon and Ethereum blockchain is operated by a decentralized network of independent third parties. We have no control over the Polygon and Ethereum blockchain and therefore cannot and will not ensure that any transaction details you submit via the Services will be confirmed on the Polygon and Ethereum blockchain. You acknowledge and agree that the transaction details you submit via the Services may not be completed, or may be substantially delayed, by the Polygon and Ethereum blockchain. You may use the Services to submit these details to the Polygon and Ethereum blockchain.
5. No Storage or Transmission of MPX and MPXR, in any of its forms is an intangible, digital asset controlled by you. These assets exist only by virtue of the ownership record maintained on the Polygon and Ethereum blockchain. However, for MPX, the Service manages the asset if it is stored on the Mindplex Escrow including, send, or receive MPX. For MPXR, the service manages the asset in the ways described in Section 9.2. Any transfer of permanent or temporary title that might occur in any of these tokens occurs on the Polygon and Ethereum blockchain and not within the Services. We do not guarantee that the Service can affect the transfer of title or right in any tokens.
Nothing in this Agreement is intended to nor shall create any partnership, joint venture, agency, consultancy, or trusteeship, between you and us.
7. Accuracy of Information.
You represent and warrant that any information you provide via the Services is accurate and complete. You accept and acknowledge that we are not responsible for any errors or omissions that you make in connection with any Polygon and Ethereum blockchain transaction initiated via the Services, for instance, if you mistype an Account name or otherwise provide incorrect information. We strongly encourage you to review your transaction details carefully before completing them via the Services, because due to the nature of the blockchain technology the transactions are irreversible.
8. No Cancellations or Modifications.
Once transaction details have been submitted to the Polygon and Ethereum blockchain via the Services, The Services cannot assist you to cancel or otherwise modify your transaction details. We have no control over the Polygon and Ethereum blockchain and do not have the ability to facilitate any cancellation or modification requests. However, in cases like Paid content request or Content creator’s tip,
It is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to the transactions for which you have submitted transaction details via the Services, and it is your responsibility to report and remit the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority. You agree that we are not responsible for determining whether taxes apply to your Polygon and Ethereum blockchain transactions or for collecting, reporting, withholding, or remitting any taxes arising from any Polygon and Ethereum blockchain transactions.
Fees for Using the Services

In the event of termination, your access to the MPX funds in your account will require you access to the Polygon and Ethereum blockchain via the command line API or third party tool, and will require you to have access to your backup of your Account data including your Account and Private Keys. Whatever MPX funds you have on our Mindplex Escrow will be transferred (all the eligible funds) to your wallet. Regarding the MPXR, the asset will stay in the Mindplex reputation escrow.
