8.       Risks


By becoming an Account Holder and using the Exchange Platform you expressly acknowledge, accept and assume the following risks:


a)                   Risk of software weaknesses: because the Exchange Platform is based on Blockchains, any malfunction, breakdown or abandonment of any Blockchain may have a material adverse effect on the Exchange Platform. Moreover, advances in cryptography, or technical advances such as the development of quantum computing, could present risks to the Exchange Platform, by rendering ineffective the cryptographic consensus mechanism that underpins Blockchains.

b)                   Regulatory risk: blockchain technology allows new forms of interaction and it is possible that certain jurisdictions will apply existing regulations on, or introduce new regulations addressing, blockchain technology based applications, which may be contrary to the current setup of the smart contract system and which may, inter alia, result in substantial modifications to the Exchange Platform, including its termination.

c)                   Risks associated with uncertain regulations and enforcement actions: Huobi may cease operations in a jurisdiction in the event that regulatory actions, or changes to law or regulation, make it illegal to operate in such jurisdiction, or commercially undesirable to obtain the necessary regulatory approval(s) to operate in such jurisdiction.  This may result in you losing access to your Account and may further result in the loss of any Virtual Currency stored or held on your Account.

d)                   Risk of mining attacks: Blockchains are susceptible to mining attacks, including but not limited to double-spend attacks, majority mining power attacks, “selfish-mining” attacks, and rare condition attacks. Any successful attacks present a risk to the Exchange Platform, and the expected proper execution and sequencing of Transaction. You understand and accept that the network of miners will ultimately be in control of the delivery of Virtual Currency via the Blockchain, and that a majority of miners could agree at any point to make changes, updates, modifications to, or effect a deletion or destruction the Blockchain.

e)                   Risk of uninsured losses: unlike bank accounts or accounts at some other financial institutions, any Virtual Currency held in your Account are uninsured unless you specifically obtain private insurance to insure them.  Thus, in the event of loss, there is no public insurer or private insurance arranged by us, to offer recourse to you.

f)                    Risks arising from taxation: the tax characterization of Virtual Currency is uncertain.  You must seek your own tax advice in connection with acquisition, storage, transfer and use of any Virtual Currency, which may result in adverse tax consequences to you, including, without limitation, withholding taxes, transfer taxes, value added taxes, income taxes and similar taxes, levies, duties or other charges and tax reporting requirements.

g)                   Risk of dissolution of the Company or network: it is possible that, due to any number of reasons, including, but not limited to, the negative adoption of the Exchange Platform, the failure of commercial relationships, or intellectual property ownership challenges, the Exchange Platform may no longer be viable to operate and Huobi may dissolve which may result in any Virtual Currency stored or held on your Account  becoming irrecoverable and/or permanently lost.

h)                   Unanticipated Risks: Virtual Currency and blockchain technology are a new and untested technology. In addition to these risks, there are other risks associated with your acquisition, storage, transfer and use of any Virtual Currency via your Account, including those that Huobi may not be able to anticipate. Such risks may further materialize as unanticipated variations or combinations of these risks.

15.    Dispute Resolution by Arbitration




15.1           Binding Arbitration. Except for any disputes, claims, suits, actions, causes of action, demands or proceedings (collectively, “Disputes”) in which either Party seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, you and Huobi (i) waive your and Huobi’s respective rights to have any and all Disputes arising from or related to these Terms resolved in a court, and (ii) waive your and Huobi’s respective rights to a jury trial. Instead, you and Huobi will arbitrate Disputes through binding arbitration (which is the referral of a Dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the Dispute and making a final and binding determination to resolve it instead of having the Dispute decided by a judge or jury in court).

15.2           No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions. Any Dispute arising out of or related to these Terms is personal to you and Huobi and will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding. There will be no class arbitration or arbitration in which an individual attempt to resolve a Dispute as a representative of another individual or group of individuals. Further, a Dispute cannot be brought as a class or other type of representative action, whether within or outside of arbitration, or on behalf of any other individual or group of individuals.

15.3           Arbitration Rules. Any dispute arising out of or in connection with these Terms, including any question regarding its existence, validity or termination, shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration under the rules of the London Court of International Arbitration (“LCIA Rules”), which are available at http://www.lcia.org/Dispute_Resolution_Services/lcia-arbitration-rules-2014.aspx and are deemed to be incorporated by reference in this clause 15. By agreeing to be bound by these Terms, you either (i) acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the LCIA Rules, or (ii) waive your opportunity to read the LCIA Rules and any claim that the LCIA Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason. 

15.4           Notice; Informal Dispute Resolution. Each Party will notify the other Party in writing of any Dispute within thirty (30) days of the date it arises, so that the Parties can attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute informally. Notice to Huobi shall be sent by e-mail to Huobi at [[email protected]]. Notice to you shall be sent to any address you provide to us in writing in a notice. Your notice must include (i) your name, postal address, email address and telephone number, (ii) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute, and (iii) the specific relief that you are seeking. If you and Huobi cannot agree how to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after the date the notice is received by the applicable Party, then either you or Huobi may, as appropriate and in accordance with this clause 15, commence an arbitration proceeding or, to the extent specifically provided for in clause 15.1, file a claim in court. 

15.5           Process. The seat, or legal place, of arbitration shall be Gibraltar. The arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator appointed in accordance with the LCIA Rules. The language to be used in the arbitration proceedings shall be English. The governing law of these Terms shall be the substantive law of Gibraltar and the Gibraltar court will have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration decision.

These Terms, the applicable LCIA Rules and the arbitrator will have (i) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute, including the determination of whether a Dispute may be subject to arbitration, and (ii) the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court, provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative or class action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.

15.7           Severability of Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Provisions. If any term, clause or provision of this clause 15 is held invalid or unenforceable, it will be so held to the minimum extent applicable and required by law, and all other terms, clauses and provisions of this clause 15 will remain valid and enforceable. Further, the waivers set forth in clause 15.2 above are severable from the other provisions of these Terms and will remain valid and enforceable, except as prohibited by applicable law.

16.    Force Majeure


Neither Huobi nor any member of the Huobi Companies shall be liable or responsible to you, or be deemed to have breached these Terms, for any failure or delay in fulfilling or performing its obligations under these Terms, if and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by, results from or is otherwise connected to acts beyond its reasonable control, including, without limitation: (a) acts of God; (b) flood, fire, earthquake or explosion; (c) war, invasion, hostilities (whether war is declared or not), terrorist, hacking or cyber threats, attacks or acts, or other civil unrest; (d) any laws, statutes, ordinances, rules, regulations, judgments, injunctions, orders and decrees; or (e) action by any nation or government, state or other political subdivision thereof, any entity exercising legislative, regulatory, judicial or administrative functions of or pertaining to government, including, without limitation, any government authority, agency, department, board, commission or council.
