For the avoidance of doubt, Ternary Intelligence and its product application Hedged Bitcoin does not give currency trading or strategy advice, including buy, sell, or hold recommendations. Any communication from Ternary Intelligence personnel relating to the operation of Hedged Bitcoin is only intended for informational purposes, for consideration by Users and their financial representatives or advisors based on their independent assessments. Unique trading experiences and past performance do not guarantee future results. No results are guaranteed, whether or not in relation to unique trading experiences and past performance.

In no event shall Ternary Intelligence or Uphold’s total liability to you for any damage (however so arising, whether in contract, tort or other legal theory) exceed the amount of fees paid by the User, as and to the extent such limit is permitted by applicable law.
Ternary Intelligence and Uphold are separate, unaffiliated companies and neither company is responsible or liable for any loss or damage which may arise from the other's products and services.
For the avoidance of doubt, Ternary Intelligence is not affiliated with any other advisory firm or financial/investment website. Many investment advisors may utilize the Ternary Intelligence platform or assist clients with their Ternary Intelligence strategies, but Ternary Intelligence is not affiliated with these investment advisors or websites and therefore we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity which may result from the acts of such third parties, including but not limited to, investment advisors or websites.

By accepting the Terms of Service, Users grant us access to view all cards, balances, transactions and User contacts, perform asset conversions, and perform transactions that move assets within the User account and between different accounts within the Uphold Platform for the purposes the Service(s) only. We reserve the right to temporarily transfer User funds managed pursuant to the Service(s) within the Uphold Platform to other accounts within the same Uphold Platform managed by our other services for a period of up to 24 hours where required in order for the Uphold Platform reserve system to process deposits to and withdrawals from management pursuant to the services.
Cost of service
By accepting these Terms of Service, the User agrees that part of the funds on their Uphold Platform account managed pursuant to the Service(s) will be transferred away from their account in the amount corresponding to the cost of service, as described below.
Ternary Intelligence charges all Users of the Hedged Bitcoin application a fee (“Assets Fee”) of one percent (1%) of each User’s assets under management by the product annually, charged on a daily basis at a rate 0.0027397%. The Assets Fee is collected at the end of each day (transfer initiated at UTC 23:59 time) for as long as user’s funds remain under management pursuant to the Service(s).
In addition to the Assets Fee, Ternary Intelligence charges all Users of the Hedged Bitcoin application a fee of twenty percent (20%) of gains realized above the principal (net amount of deposits and withdrawals) as a result of using the Hedged Bitcoin application during the preceding calendar month (“Gains Fee”). The Gains Fee shall be applied effective as of the final day each of calendar month (transfer initiated at 23:59 UTC time) for each user who had funds managed pursuant to the Service(s) during the entire calendar month. No Gains Fee will be charged for a given calendar month for users who did not have funds managed by the Hedged Bitcoin application during that entire calendar month. The Gains Fee cannot be an amount less than zero and shall be net of (i.e., determined after) the Assets Fee.
In the event the amount of the Assets Fee and/or Gains Fee to be charged at a specified time is smaller than the tick size of the US Dollar card on the Uphold Platform, the corresponding fee amount will not be withheld from the User account.
If a User wishes to cancel their Hedged Bitcoin account and/or withdraw their funds from continued management pursuant to the Service(s), the User acknowledges and accepts that they are not entitled to a refund of any Asset Fees and Gains Fees already collected from their account. In the event the User cancels its use of the Service(s), the User acknowledges and accepts that the Gains Fee will be applied before the end of a calendar month, according to any gains realized to date.
Uphold may charge the User additional fees for using services via the Uphold Platform, as disclosed by Uphold from time to time in the applicable User Agreement(s).

Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, our liability shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
The User agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Ternary Intelligence and any parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, partners, officers, directors, agents, contractors, licensors, service providers, subcontractors, suppliers, interns and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third-party due to or arising out of the User ’s breach of the Terms of Service or the documents they incorporate by reference, or the User ’s violation of any law or the rights of a third-party.
