Terms & Conditions
Supplemental terms and conditions or documents that may be posted on the platform from time to time are hereby expressly incorporated herein by reference. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to make changes or modifications to these Terms & Conditions at any time and for any reason. We will alert you about any changes by updating the “Last updated” date of these Terms & Conditions, and you waive any right to receive specific notice of each such change. It is your responsibility to periodically review these Terms & Conditions to stay informed of updates. You will be subject to, and will be deemed to have been made aware of and to have accepted, the changes in any revised Terms & Conditions by your continued use of the platform after the date such revised Terms & Conditions are posted.
The information provided on the platform is not intended for distribution to or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject us to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country. Accordingly, those persons who choose to access the platform from other locations do so on their own initiative and are solely responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.
The platform provides access to a decentralized protocol on the Vite Network that allows suppliers and borrowers of digital assets to interact with the platform and transact using smart contracts (“Smart Contracts”).
Using the platform may require that you pay a fee on the Vita Inu platform to perform a transaction. You acknowledge and agree that Vita Inu has no control over any transactions, the method of payment of any transactions, or any actual payments of transactions. You must ensure that you have a sufficient balance to complete any transaction on the platform before initiating such transaction.
You acknowledge and agree that Vita Inu has no control over any transactions over the platform, the method of payment of any transactions or any actual payments of transactions. Accordingly, you must ensure that you have a sufficient balance of the applicable cryptocurrency tokens stored at your Vita Inu compatible wallet address (“Cryptocurrency Wallet”) to complete any transaction on the platform or the Vita Inu platform before initiating such transaction.
When used on this platform, the terms “debt,” “lend,” “borrow,” “collateral”, “credit,” “leverage,” “bank”, “borrow”, “yield”, “invest” and other similar terms are not meant to be interpreted literally. Rather, such terms are being used to draw rough, fuzzy-logic analogies between the heavily automated and mostly deterministic operations of a decentralized-finance smart contract system and the discretionary performance of traditional-finance transactions by people. When the platform is used by users to access the platform and transact using Smart Contracts, there are no legal agreements, promises of payment, or courts of law, and therefore there are no debts, loans, or other traditional finance transactions involved.
To access or use the platform, you must be able to form a legally binding contract with us. Accordingly, you represent that you have the full right, power, and authority to enter into and comply with the terms and conditions of this Agreement on behalf of yourself and any company or legal entity for which you may access or use the platform. You further represent that you are not a citizen, resident, or member of any jurisdiction or group that is subject to economic sanctions, or where your use of the platform would be illegal or otherwise violate any applicable law. You further represent that your access and use of the platform will fully comply with all applicable laws and regulations, and that you will not access or use the platform to conduct, promote, or otherwise facilitate any illegal activity.

All information provided by the platform is for informational purposes only and should not be construed as professional advice. In particular, the content and materials available on the platform does not constitute any form of advice or recommendation by us, should not be regarded as an offer, solicitation, invitation or recommendation to buy or sell investments, securities or any other financial services and is not intended to be relied upon by you in making any specific investment or other decisions. You should not take, or refrain from taking, any action based on any information contained in the platform. Before you make any financial, legal, or other decisions involving the platform, you should seek independent professional advice from an individual who is licensed and qualified in the area for which such advice would be appropriate.
Nothing included in the platform constitutes an offer or solicitation to sell, or distribution of, investments and related services to anyone in any jurisdiction.
From time to time, reference may be made to data we have gathered. These references may be selective or, may be partial. As markets change continuously, previously published information and data may not be current and should not be relied upon.
Any reference to any Rate on the platform is denominated in terms of stablecoins or other digital assets or tokens, as applicable, not USD or other fiat currency. The swap rate is a forward-looking projection based on a good faith belief of how to reasonably project results over the relevant period, but such belief is subject to numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties (including smart contract security risks and third-party actions) which could result in a materially different (lower or higher) token-denominated rate.
The rate is not a promise, guarantee, or undertaking on the part of any person or group of persons, but depends entirely on the results of operation of smart contracts and other autonomous systems (including third-party systems) and how third parties interact with those systems after the time of your deposit.
Even if the rate is achieved as projected, you may still suffer a financial loss in fiat-denominated terms if the fiat-denominated value of the relevant tokens (your deposit and any tokens allocated or distributed to you pursuant to the rate) declines during the deposit period.
Third-party website and content
The platform may contain (or you may be sent via the platform) links to other websites (“Third-Party Websites”) as well as articles, photographs, text, graphics, pictures, designs, music, sound, video, information, applications, software, and other content or items belonging to or originating from third parties (“Third-Party Content”). Such Third-Party Websites and Third-Party Content are not investigated, monitored, or checked for accuracy, appropriateness, or completeness by us, and we are not responsible for any Third-Party Websites accessed through the platform or any Third-Party Content posted on, available through, or installed from the platform, including the content, accuracy, offensiveness, opinions, reliability, privacy practices, or other policies of or contained in the Third-Party Websites or the Third-Party Content. Inclusion of, linking to, or permitting the use or installation of any Third-Party Websites or any Third-Party Content does not imply approval or endorsement thereof by us. If you decide to leave the platform and access the Third-Party Websites or to use or install any Third-Party Content, you do so at your own risk, and you should be aware these Terms & Conditions no longer govern. You should review the applicable terms and policies, including privacy and data gathering practices, of any website to which you navigate from the platform or relating to any applications you use or install from the platform. Any purchases you make through Third-Party Websites will be through other websites and from other companies, and we take no responsibility whatsoever in relation to such purchases which are exclusively between you and the applicable third party. You agree and acknowledge that we do not endorse the products or services offered on Third-Party Websites and you shall hold us harmless from any harm caused by your purchase of such products or services. Additionally, you shall hold us harmless from any losses sustained by you or harm caused to you relating to or resulting in any way from any Third-Party Content or any contact with Third-Party Websites.

Assumption of risk
By accessing and using the platform, you represent that you understand the inherent risks associated with using cryptographic and blockchain-based systems, and that you have a working knowledge of the usage and intricacies of digital assets. You further understand that the markets for these digital assets are highly volatile due to factors including (but not limited to) adoption, speculation, technology, security, and regulation. You acknowledge that the cost and speed of transacting with cryptographic and blockchain-based systems are variable and may increase dramatically at any time. You further acknowledge the risk that your digital assets may lose some or all of their value while they are supplied to the platform. If you borrow digital assets from the platform, you will have to supply digital assets of your own as collateral. If your collateral declines in value such that it is no longer sufficient to secure the amount that you borrowed, others may interact with the platform to seize your collateral in a liquidation event. You further acknowledge that we are not responsible for any of these variables or risks, do not own or control the platform, and cannot be held liable for any resulting losses that you experience while accessing or using the platform.
We make no warranties as to the markets on which digital assets are transferred, purchased, or traded. You are solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to your digital asset transactions.
We do not store, send, or receive digital assets or funds. This is because digital assets exist only by virtue of the ownership record maintained on its supporting blockchain. Any transfer of digital assets occurs within the decentralized platform and the blockchain. We cannot assist you to cancel or otherwise modify any transaction or transaction details. There are no warranties or guarantees that a transfer initiated via the platform will successfully transfer title or right in any digital asset.
Accordingly, you understand and agree to assume full responsibility for all of the risks of accessing and using the platform and interacting with the platform.
