Please do not access this Site (as defined below) where such access is prohibited by applicable law. Please carefully read these terms of use before using the Site. These Terms (as defined below) apply to any person or entity accessing the Site and by using the Site, you agree to be bound by them. The Terms contain a mandatory individual arbitration and class action/jury trial waiver provision that requires the use of arbitration on an individual basis to resolve disputes, rather than jury trials or class actions.

  1. 1.
    Overview
This Terms of Use Agreement (these “Terms” or this “agreement”) covers the fp.io website and mobile user-interfaces (collectively, the “Site”) provided by Flooring Lab (“we,” “our,” or “us”), at times in conjunction with others. As part of the Site, we provide access to the decentralized finance application (the “Floor Protocol”) managed and operated by holders of the $FLC governance token (the “Community”). The Floor Protocol is comprised of certain smart contracts deployed on the Ethereum blockchain and related software development kits (collectively, the “Smart Contracts”) on which traders of ERC-20 tokens and NFTs (collectively, “Digital Assets”) can transact on a peer-to-peer basis. In addition to the Site, you can access the Floor Protocol through a number of third-party web or mobile user-interfaces that we do not own, administer or control (“UIs”).
These Terms apply to you (“you” or “your”) as a user of our Site, including, without limitation, all the products, services, tools and information made available on the Site. Our Privacy Policy and Cookies Policy also apply to your access and use of the Site.
You must be able to form a legally binding contract online either as an individual or on behalf of a legal entity. You represent that, if you are agreeing to these Terms on behalf of a legal entity, you have the legal authority to bind that entity to these Terms and you are not indirectly or directly included on any sanctions list and at least 18 years old or the age of majority where you reside, (whichever is older) can form a legally binding contract online, and have the full, right, power and authority to enter into and to comply with the obligations under these Terms.
You are advised to periodically review these Terms so you understand any changes. We reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to make changes to our Terms. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the “Last Updated” date at the beginning of these Terms accordingly. Changes are binding on users of the Site and will take effect immediately upon posting. As a user, you agree to be bound by any changes, variations, or modifications to our Terms and your continued use of the Site shall constitute acceptance of any such changes, revisions, variations, or modifications. By continuing to use the Site, you also acknowledge and agree that we have provided you with sufficient notice of such changes.

    Access / Disclaimer of Warranties
ACCESS TO THIS SITE AND THE PRODUCTS HEREIN ARE PROVIDED ON AN 'AS IS' AND 'AS AVAILABLE' BASIS WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. NO WARRANTY IS PROVIDED THAT THE SITE OR ANY PRODUCT WILL BE FREE FROM DEFECTS OR VIRUSES OR THAT OPERATION OF THE PRODUCT WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED. YOUR USE OF THE SITE AND ANY PRODUCT AND ANY MATERIAL OR SERVICES OBTAINED OR ACCESSED VIA THE SITE IS AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK, AND YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE RESULTING FROM THEIR USE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES, SO SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
We do not guarantee or promise that the Site, or any content on it, will always be available, functional, usable or uninterrupted. From time to time, access may be interrupted, suspended or restricted, including because of a fault, error or unforeseen circumstances or because we are carrying out planned maintenance or changes.
We reserve the right to limit the availability of the site to any person, geographic area or jurisdiction in our sole discretion and/or to terminate your access to and use of the site, at any time and in our sole discretion. We may suspend or disable your access to the Site for any reason and in our sole discretion, including for any intentional or unintentional breaches of these Terms. We may remove or amend the content of the Site at any time. Some of the content may be out of date at any given time and we are under no obligation to update or revise it. We do not promise or guarantee that the Site, or any content on it, will be free from errors or omissions.
We will not be liable to you for any issue, loss or damage you may or have suffered as a result of the Site being unavailable at any time for any reason. You will comply with all applicable domestic and international laws, statutes, ordinances, rules and regulations applicable to your use of the site (“Applicable Laws”).
As a condition to accessing or using the Site, you agree and represent that you will:
  • Only use the Services and the Site for lawful purposes and in adherence with these Terms;
  • Ensure that all information that you provide on the Site is current, complete, and accurate; and
  • Maintain the security, privacy and confidentiality of access to your Digital Asset wallet address.
As a condition to accessing or using the Site or the Services, you will not:
  • Violate any Applicable Law;
  • Use the Site for any purpose or conduct that is directly or indirectly unlawful;
  • Export, reexport, or transfer, directly or indirectly, any technology belonging to us or the Floor Protocol in violation of applicable export laws or regulations;
  • Infringe on or misappropriate any contract, intellectual property or other third-party right, or commit a tort while using the Site;
  • Misrepresent, with omission or otherwise, the truthfulness, sourcing or reliability of any content on the Site;
  • Use the Site in any manner that could interfere with, disrupt, negatively affect, redirect or inhibit other users from fully enjoying the Site or the Floor Protocol, or that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair the functioning of the Site or the Floor Protocol in any manner;
  • Attempt to circumvent or disable any content filtering techniques or security measures that Flooring Lab employs on the Site, or attempt to access any service or area of the Site that you are not authorized to access;
  • Introduce or use any malware, virus, Trojan horse, worm, logic bomb, drop-dead device, backdoor, shutdown mechanism or other harmful material into the Site;
  • Post content or communications on the Site that are, in our sole discretion, libelous, defamatory, profane, obscene, pornographic, sexually explicit, indecent, lewd, vulgar, suggestive, harassing, hateful, threatening, offensive, discriminatory, bigoted, abusive, inflammatory, fraudulent, deceptive or otherwise objectionable;
  • To the extent applicable, post content on the Site containing unsolicited promotions, commercial messages or any chain messages or user content designed to deceive, induce or trick the user of the Site; or
  • Encourage or induce any third party to engage in any of the activities prohibited under these Terms.
You acknowledge that the Site and your use of the Site present certain risks, including without limitation the following risks:
  • Losses while digital assets are being supplied to the Floor Protocol and losses due to the fluctuation of prices of tokens in a trading pair or liquidity pool. Prices of digital currencies, tokens and/or other digital assets fluctuate day by day or even minute by minute. The value of your available balance could surge or drop suddenly. Please note that there is a possibility that the price of tokens could decrease to zero. Prices of tokens are prone to significant fluctuations, for example, due to announced proposed legislative acts, governmental restrictions, news related to cyber crimes or other factors causing potentially excessive market enthusiasm, disproportionate loss in confidence, or manipulation by others in the market.
  • Risks associated with accessing the Floor Protocol through third party UIs. You are responsible for doing your own diligence on those UIs to understand and accept the risks that use entails. You are also responsible for doing your own diligence on those interfaces to understand and accept any fees that those interfaces may charge.
  • Risks associated with any Smart Contracts with which you interact.
  • Although we do not have access to your assets, you are reminded and acknowledge that at any time, your access to your Digital Assets through third-party Digital Asset wallet services, unrelated to the Site, may be suspended or terminated or there may be a delay in your access or use of your Digital Assets, which may result in the Digital Assets diminishing in value or you being unable to complete a Smart Contract.
  • You are reminded of the inherent risks with digital assets and decentralized finance including the fact that tokens are not legal tender and are not backed by any government. Unlike fiat currencies, which are regulated and backed by local governments and central banks, tokens are based only on technology and user consensus, which means that in cases of manipulations or market panic, central governments will not take any corrective actions or measures to achieve stability, maintain liquidity or protect their value. There is a possibility that certain transactions cannot be settled or may be difficult to settle, or can be completed only at significantly adverse prices depending on the market situation and/or market volume. Transactions may be irreversible, and, accordingly, potential losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions are not recoverable. Some blockchain transactions are deemed to be completed when recorded on a public ledger, which is not necessarily the date or time when you or another party initiated the transaction.
  • The regulatory frameworks applicable to blockchain transactions in connection with tokens are still developing and evolving. It is possible that your transactions or funds are, or may be in the future, subject to various reporting, tax or other liabilities and obligations. Legislative and regulatory changes or actions at the country or international level may materially and adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange, and value of your tokens. Certain jurisdictions may treat groups of users as a general partnership or some other type of unincorporated association, which may result in a theory of collective liability that could heighten your risks of liability for events or occurrences outside your control.
  • The Site and/or Floor Protocol may be wholly or partially suspended or terminated for any or no reason, which may limit your access to your Digital Assets.
You are solely responsible for understanding and complying with any and all Applicable Laws in connection with your acceptance of these Terms and your use of any part of the Site, including but not limited to those related to taxes as well as reporting and disclosure obligations.
This list of risk factors is non-exhaustive, and other risks, arising either now or in the future, could additionally be relevant and applicable to you in making an informed judgment to accept, or continue to accept, these Terms and/or use, or continue to use the Site.
Accordingly, you expressly acknowledge and agree that:
a. you assume all risk in connection with the specific risks identified above;
b. you assume all risk in connection with your access to and use of the Site, the Floor Protocol and the Smart Contracts;
c. that you expressly waive and release us, the Floor Protocol and the Community from any and all liability, claims, causes of action, responsibility or damages arising from or in any way related to your use of the Site, the Floor Protocol or the Smart Contracts;
d. upgrades and modifications to the Floor Protocol are managed in a community-driven way by holders of the Floor Protocol governance token; and
e. no individual or entity involved in creating the Floor Protocol will be liable for any claims or damages whatsoever associated with your use, inability to use, or your interaction with other users of, the Floor Protocol, including any direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages, or loss of profits, Digital Assets, cryptocurrencies, tokens, or anything else of value.
