Parallax recommends that you seek advice from your financial, legal and tax advisors.
5.2. Financial Sophistication/Risk Tolerance
: The Platform is intended only for users who fully understand and are willing to accept the risks associated with cryptocurrency (“Digital Assets”). Digital Assets can be very risky and you must be able to afford to lose the value the Digital Assets you hold in your Account.
5.3. Role of Parallax
: Parallax is not an exchange, funding portal, custodian, trust company, registered or licensed broker, dealer, broker-dealer, investment advisor or investment manager in the United States or elsewhere.
5.4. Role of our Partners
: Any Digital Assets or fiat currency that you deposit, sell, or buy through the Platform or Service are held in custody by our partners.
5.5. No Fiduciary, Broker, or Agency Relationship
: Parallax does not contribute to the creation or the expansion of Digital Assets available for sale. Parallax is not an investment specialist, tax specialist, financial planner (certified or otherwise), and Parallax does not provide investment advice, tax advice, or Digital Assets.
5.6. Past Performance No Guarantee of Future Returns
: Historical performance is no guarantee of future results.
5.7. Holding Digital Assets
: Parallax recommends that you contact your accountants, attorneys and financial advisors regarding all financial choices and strategies. Parallax is not a legal or tax professional and does not provide legal or tax advice. Parallax makes no representation or warranty that purchasing Digital Assets complies with government regulations or statutes or that current rules and statutes will not change.
: The success of an investment in Digital Assets is dependent in part upon extrinsic economic forces including supply, demand, international monetary conditions, inflation or the expectation of inflation, confidence (or any lack thereof) in the security or technological foundation of the Digital Asset, the emergence of additional alternative currencies, market acceptance, geopolitical events, global tax policies, monetary policies of central banks globally, and an evolving and unpredictable regulatory framework. The impact of these forces on the value of Digital Assets, or any particular Digital Asset, cannot be predicted. Digital Asset markets can be volatile.
5.9. Pricing Information and Account Valuation
: Parallax does not make a market in any Digital Assets. Pricing data (and resulting valuation and performance data) displayed on the Platform are provided by or based on information provided by one or more exchanges and data services, may be delayed or otherwise not up to date, may be incorrect, and there is no guarantee that any amount of Digital Asset can be purchased or liquidated for the price indicated. No price is guaranteed until the transaction is settled. Valuation data is inclusive of custodial, wallet provider, liquidity provider and Parallax transaction fees. Parallax will make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that transaction history information, including Account holdings, are all accurately displayed on the Platform, but Parallax does not guarantee the accuracy of such information. All pricing and other information (including Account valuation) on the Platform is provided on an “as is” basis for your personal information only, no representations are made as to the accuracy of such information, and you agree not to rely upon such information for any purpose. Parallax (a) expressly disclaims the accuracy, adequacy, or completeness of any pricing or valuation data displayed and (b) shall not be liable for any errors, omissions, or other defects in, delays or interruptions in such data, or for any actions taken in reliance thereon. Parallax is not liable for any damages relating to your use of the information provided on the Platform.
5.10. Due Diligence
: You are responsible for conducting your own due diligence regarding investments and the parties with whom you entrust your funds and do business. Neither Parallax nor any of its directors, officers, stockholders, employees, representatives, affiliates, agents, or advisors have any liability whatsoever arising from or for any error or incompleteness of fact or opinion in, or lack of care in the preparation or publication of, the materials transmitted through or posted on the Platform. The information on this Platform does not constitute an offer of, nor the solicitation of an offer to buy or subscribe for, any securities to any person in any jurisdiction to whom or in which such offer or solicitation is unlawful.
6.1. Third-Party Partners
Parallax has partnered with third parties to facilitate certain aspects of the Services (“Third-Party Partners”). In order to enable certain functions of the Services, you may be required to enter into additional agreements with such Third-Party Partners. Parallax does not have control of, or liability for, the products or services offered by these Third-Party Partners. When you access third party websites or use third-party services, you accept that there are risks in doing so, and that Parallax is not responsible for such risks.
6.2. Custodial Partner
Parallax has partnered with a vendor to facilitate custodial aspects of the Services.
Digital assets are not legal tender, are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) and are not subject to protections afforded to bank deposits. Digital Assets are subject to extreme price volatility and may lose value.
Our vendor maintains one or more deposit accounts at banks for the benefit of customers that maintain fiat currency balances. Deposit accounts can be dedicated custodial accounts for the benefit of a single customer or custodial accounts that hold commingled funds in proportion to the fiat currency contributed by each account holder recorded on our vendor's ledger in a manner consistent with 12 CFR 330.5(a)(2).
6.3. Third-Party Websites
The Platform may contain links to third-party websites, advertisers, services, special offers, or other events or activities that are not owned or controlled by us (collectively and individually “Third-Party Websites”). These Third-Party Websites may have their own terms and conditions of use and privacy policies and your use of these Third-Party Websites will be governed by and subject to such terms and conditions and privacy policies. You must ensure that you have read, understood and agreed to all of the terms and conditions, policies and guidelines of the Third-Party Websites. You acknowledge and agree that Parallax does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for the behavior, features, opinions, advice, statements, prices, advertisement, or any other content of any of the Third-Party Websites or for any transaction you may enter into with the provider of any such Third-Party Websites. You further acknowledge and agree that we will not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any content, events, goods, or services available on or through any such site or resource. Any dealings you have with third parties found while using our Services are between you and the third party, and you agree that we are not liable for any loss or claim that you may have against any such third party
7. Accessing and Using Certain Services; Account Application
In the future, our Services may include access to, and maintenance of, certain consumer financial products and accounts offered by a bank partner (“Bank Partner”). You understand that the Bank Partner has sole discretion to approve or deny your application for such products or accounts, or discontinue such products or accounts, for any reason, subject to applicable law. We or the Bank Partner may limit or deny your access to any other aspect of our Services for any reason, subject to applicable law.
We may utilize multi-factor authentication (MFA) or two-factor authentication (2FA) methods to enhance the security of your account. In some cases, these security measures may involve collaborations with third-party services. By using our service, you agree to the potential use of MFA or 2FA with these third-party websites as a part of our ongoing commitment to your account security.8. Account Opening and Use; Security
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an Account (“KYC”).
What this means for you: when you open an Account, the information we request may vary depending on the circumstances, but at a minimum, we may ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We are also required to verify the information you provide to us. This verification process may require you to provide us with supporting documentation that we deem appropriate. We may also seek to verify the information by other means. We reserve the right to request additional information and/or signatures from you from time to time. If we are not able to validate your identity or authenticity to our satisfaction, we may not open the Account or we may not provide access to the Account if your identity cannot be validated. By participating in the Platform or Services, you certify that all information you have provided to us is true, accurate and complete.
Additionally, you must link a virtual wallet capable of receiving Digital Assets and/or a bank account or wallet capable of sending fiat (“Linked Account”) to your Account in order to use our Services. Parallax enables funds to be deposited into your Custodial Account via automated clearinghouse (“ACH”), wire transfer or Digital Assets and for you to submit requests for disbursements from your Custodial Account. You are exclusively liable for any and all tax obligations (either national, provincial or municipal) which may apply to the use of the Services in its local jurisdiction, including without limitation any withholding, collection, reporting and remittance to the appropriate tax authorities. Parallax shall not be liable for any breach or non-compliance by you on your tax obligations, under the legislation in force.
9. Transferring Funds Into and Out of Your Account.
Funds may be transferred into your account through methods such as ACH, wire transfers, cards, and Digital Asset deposits. Funds may be transferred out of your Account through a linked account or wallet. You can manage linked payment methods on the Platform. There may be additional fees applicable to the transfers, and we may set limits on your Account or transfers, in each case subject to Section 22 (Fees and Limits). In some cases, transactions and payments may be delayed or blocked until you or the intended recipient provides us with all required information. This can occur for reasons such as ensuring we protect our users and ourselves from fraud and financial crime.
Because the prices of currencies fluctuate, the price we provide will only be valid for a limited time. If the price we provided expires, you will not be able to complete your transaction at that price. Once you confirm your transaction, we will then execute your purchase. Once confirmed, your purchase of the currency is not reversible. You may see your transaction history on the Platform. Parallax will have no liability for currency fluctuations or loss associated with your use of our Services.10. Authorized Users
While we do not currently permit authorized users, to the extent that we do permit such users in the future, you may be able to add one or more users to your Account provided they are approved by our Partners and satisfy the our Partners’s BSA/AML compliance requirements (“Authorized User”). When you add someone as an Authorized User, that person has permission to make transactions on your Account. If and when we do permit Authorized Users, you will be able to add them using the Platform or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You acknowledge that these Terms will apply to you and each Authorized User, and you expressly accept these Terms on behalf of yourself and each Authorized User. You further agree to and accept full responsibility for any Authorized User’s use our Services, including (a) any transactions made by an Authorized User on your Account; (b) any transaction made by an Authorized User even if the post date shown on your Statement for that transaction occurs after the date you ask us to remove the Authorized User from your Account; (c) any transaction made by others if an Authorized User allows them to use your Account; (d) fees and charges resulting from any transaction made by an Authorized User or others if an Authorized User allows them to use your Account; and (e) any other financial charges and legal liability that an Authorized User may incur in connection with their use of your Account. You agree to allow us to discuss your Account with an Authorized User, which includes giving him or her access to your transaction history and Account information. You also agree that an Authorized User may use and receive information about the Account the same way you do. By adding an Authorized User, you represent that you have permission from each one to allow us to share information about him or her as allowed by applicable law. This includes information we may get from you, any Authorized User, and information about their transactions and use of our Services.

Assignment
These Terms are specific to the relationship between you and Parallax. You may not assign these Terms without our prior written consent, but we may assign or transfer these Terms, in whole or in part, without restriction.33. Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration; Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
32.1. Agreement to Arbitrate
This Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration Section is referred to in these Terms as the “Arbitration Agreement.” You agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Parallax, whether arising out of or relating to these Terms (including any alleged breach), our Platform or Services, any advertising, any aspect of the relationship, or transactions between us, will be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court, in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except that you may assert individual claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. Further, this Arbitration Agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, and such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into these Terms, you and Parallax are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not by a judge or jury. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.
32.2. Class Action Waiver
YOU AND PARALLAX AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND PARALLAX AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIMS.
32.3. Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution; Required Notice to Parallax
Parallax is always interested in resolving disputes amicably and efficiently, and most user concerns can be resolved quickly and to the user’s satisfaction by emailing customer support at firstname.lastname@example.org. If such efforts prove unsuccessful, a party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”) to the other party. The Notice to Parallax should be emailed to email@example.com(“Notice Address”) with “Notice of Dispute” in the subject line. Parallax will send the Notice to you by certified mail to the last address on record in your Account. The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (b) set forth the specific relief sought. If you and Parallax do not resolve the claim within 60 calendar days after the Notice is received, you or Parallax may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Parallax or you will not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you are or Parallax is entitled.
32.4. Arbitration Procedures
Arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”) rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. For information on the AAA, please visit its website, http://www.adr.org. Information about the AAA Rules and fees for consumer disputes can be found at the AAA’s consumer arbitration page, http://www.adr.org/consumer. If there is any inconsistency between any term of the AAA Rules and any term of this Arbitration Agreement, the terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of these Terms as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Arbitration Agreement. Although arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings, the arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual under these Terms and applicable law. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.
Unless Parallax and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location for both parties with due consideration of each’s ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination will be made by AAA. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, Parallax agrees that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator will issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
32.5. Costs of Arbitration
Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, the “Arbitration Fees”) will be governed by the AAA Rules, unless otherwise provided in this Arbitration Agreement. If the value of the relief sought is $75,000 or less, at your request, Parallax will pay all Arbitration Fees. If the value of relief sought is more than $75,000 and you are able to demonstrate to the arbitrator that you are economically unable to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees or if the arbitrator otherwise determines for any reason that you should not be required to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees, Parallax will pay your portion of such fees. In addition, if you demonstrate to the arbitrator that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Parallax will pay as much of the Arbitration Fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. Any payment of attorneys’ fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
If a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement (other than Section 32.2) is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement will be enforceable as so modified. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any of the provisions of Section 32.2 are invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement will be null and void, unless such provisions are deemed to be invalid or unenforceable solely with respect to claims for public injunctive relief. The remainder of these Terms will continue to apply.
32.8. Future Changes to Arbitration Agreement
Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, Parallax agrees that if it makes any future change to this Arbitration Agreement (other than a change to the Notice Address) while you are a user of our Platform or Services, you may reject any such change by sending Parallax written notice within 30 calendar days of the change to the Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).34.
