By connecting your wallet to the Platform, including any related applications, you confirm your understanding of these Terms, and explicitly agree to be bound by these Terms.

By agreeing to these Terms and using the Platform, you fully accept responsibility for, and recognize that Aqueduct will not be liable to you, in connection with your use of a wallet.

You understand that Aqueduct does not ever have custody, possession, or control of your digital assets at any time.

The Platform may utilize a smart contract with open-source software that is designed to operate in a self-executing manner on public blockchains.
