SecuXess and SecuX Mobile App in connection with SecuX Wallets, provides you with a convenient and secure way to use Private Keys generated from your Recovery Words for management of Crypto Assets.
The SecuX Services allow users to:
- Update Device Firmware of their SecuX Wallets
- Add accounts of Crypto Assets to their portfolio
- View their portfolio of supported Crypto Assets
- Access the means to perform operations on various blockchain networks in accordance with their respective protocol rules, such as but not limited to:
- Send and receive Crypto Assets to and from users of a dedicated blockchain network.
- Connect with Third Party Services, to access services such as the delegation of staking rights on supported proof-of-stake blockchains or buying crypto.
SecuX operates non-custodial services, which means that we do not store, nor do we have access to your Crypto Assets or your Private Keys. We do not send or receive Crypto Assets. Any Crypto Asset transfer occurs on blockchain networks, any of which is not, and will not be owned, operated or controlled by SecuX.
SecuXess, SecuX Mobile App and SecuX Wallets only support certain Crypto Assets, which may be announced by SecuX from time to time. A non-exhaustive list of supported Crypto Assets is available at the following link: https://secuxtech.com/supported-coins-tokens/. This list is subject to change without prior notice.
SecuX does not charge any additional transaction or processing fees for using SecuX services. The transaction fee that occurs with moving funds is paid towards miners for mining blocks on the blockchain.
You are deemed to be fully aware of all the legal regulations and technical limitations relating to the proof-of-stake, proof-of-work, other types of blockchains, and the Services. You acknowledge that you have been advised of the following associated risks and you agree to bear all risks when you use SecuX Services. SecuX suggests that you invest and operate with caution, and will not be responsible or liable to you for any loss or use of the Wallet, including but not limited to the risks stated below.
Keep your credentials safe
When setting up your SecuX Wallets, you must:
(a) create and remember a strong PIN that you do not use for any other service;
(b) protect and keep your Recovery Words and Passphrases secure and confidential;
(c) prevent unwanted access to your SecuX Wallet;
(d) not share credentials associated with your Crypto Assets and SecuX Wallet with anyone you don’t trust, nor save the information on your computer, mobile phone, cloud services or any storage services online.
(e) make sure that when recovering an existing or previous wallet, your credentials associated with your Crypto Assets including Recovery Words and Passphrases, have not been exposed to any risks of being stolen, hacked or compromised, and have not been shared, stored or saved on your computer, mobile phone, cloud services or any storage services online. If you suspect that your credentials have been exposed to the aforementioned risks, it is advisable to create a new wallet with a new set of Recovery Words and Passphrase and transfer all your Crypto Assets to the new wallet, so as to eliminate the possibilities of unrecoverable loss of funds due to stolen, hacked and compromised credentials and Private Key.
You have the only existing backup
Unlike traditional centralized financial services, SecuX Services do not require the registration of personal information nor the creation of personal accounts to use our Services. In addition, SecuX does not have access to or store any PINs, Recovery Words, Private Keys, passwords, Passphrases, transaction history, or other credentials associated with your use of the SecuX Services. Therefore, SecuX is not in a position to help retrieve your credentials. You are solely responsible for remembering, storing, and keeping your credentials safe and secure, away from malicious intentions. Any third party with knowledge of one or more of your Recovery Words or PIN can gain control of the Private Keys associated with your SecuX Wallet and compromise your Crypto Assets. SecuX will not be responsible or liable to you for any loss that occurred due to the loss, theft, damaged or forgotten PIN, Recovery Words, passwords, and Passphrases.
Before you approve an operation, you must always double check that the information displayed on your mobile or computer screen is correct and matches the information displayed on your SecuX Wallet. Upon sending Crypto Assets, you are solely responsible for verifying that the recipient address, amount and fees are correct and that they are the same on both your computer or mobile and on your SecuX Wallet‘s screen.
Crypto Assets of the same name can be operated on different blockchain network. Before sending or receiving crypto assets, you understand that the verification of the correct blockchain network in which the Crypto Assets should be sent or received, is your own responsibility. Failure to adhere to the aforementioned principles when operating transactions, whether inbound or outgoing, may result in unrecoverable loss of funds. SecuX will not be responsible or liable to you for any loss that occurred due to user error such as forgotten PIN, Recovery Words, passwords, Passphrases, incorrectly constructed transactions, or mistyped addresses.
Underlying blockchain protocols
All transactions created through SecuX Services are confirmed and recorded in associated blockchain networks. Such networks are decentralized peer-to-peer networks run by independent third parties, which SecuX does not own, control or operate. We have no control over blockchain networks and, therefore, cannot and do not ensure that the transactions you broadcast on SecuX Services will be confirmed and processed. You acknowledge that we do not store, send, or receive Crypto Assets and you agree that the transactions you configure on SecuX Services may fail, or may be substantially delayed by the underlying blockchain networks.
On occasions, the blockchain protocol of a given Crypto Asset may change, which may have consequences on its key characteristics including but not limited to their availability, name, security, valuation or the way it operates. Forks entail that forked Crypto Assets may be misdirected or replicated. In any such events, you agree that SecuX may suspend support of the impacted Crypto Asset for as long as SecuX deems necessary at its discretion. SecuX will strive to notify users in advance whenever possible, but SecuX shall not be held responsible for such events.
