9. Security of Syndicate Bridge
To ensure reliability and to protect Syndicate Bridge and the Content, we use high grade hosting services and security technologies that we believe will provide you with a secure and safe environment when using Syndicate Bridge. However, no system is perfectly secure or reliable. The internet and decentralized applications are an inherently insecure medium, and the reliability of hosting services, validators, smart contracts, internet intermediaries, your internet service provider, and other service providers cannot be assured. When you use Syndicate Bridge, you accept these risks and the responsibility for choosing to use a technology that cannot guarantee complete security and reliability. You are solely responsible for evaluating any software or Content made available through Syndicate Bridge and the trustworthiness of any third-party websites, products, smart contracts, or Content you access or use through Syndicate Bridge

- Applicable Law and Venue
Syndicate Bridge is controlled by OneLedger and operated by it from its offices in Barbados. You and OneLedger both benefit from establishing a predictable legal environment in regard to Syndicate Bridge. Therefore, you and OneLedger explicitly agree that all disputes, claims, or other matters arising from or relating to your use of Syndicate Bridge will be governed by the laws of Barbados applicable therein. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to these Terms.
In the event of any disputes, issues, controversies, and/or claims arising out of or in connection with these Terms, or in respect of any legal relationship associated with or derived from these Terms (“Disputes”), either party may initiate the process by sending a notice of a Dispute (a “Dispute Notice”) to the other party. Upon delivery of a Dispute Notice to either party, each party shall appoint a knowledgeable, responsible, non-lawyer, representative to meet and negotiate in good faith with the representative of the other party in order to resolve the Dispute.
All Disputes that are not resolved within thirty (30) days following delivery of a Dispute Notice shall be arbitrated and finally resolved, with no right of appeal, even on questions of law, the place of arbitration shall be in Barbados. The language of the arbitration shall be English.
Except where prohibited by applicable law, any Dispute (whether in contract or tort, pursuant to statute or regulation, or otherwise, and whether pre-existing, present or future) arising out of or relating to (a) these Terms; (b) Syndicate Bridge or Content; (c) oral or written statements, advertisements or promotions relating to these Terms or to Syndicate Bridge; or (d) the relationships that result from these Terms, Syndicate Bridge or Content (collectively, a “Claim”) will be referred to and determined by a sole arbitrator (to the exclusion of the courts). Except where prohibited by applicable law, you waive any right you may have to commence or participate in any class action against OneLedger related to any Claim and, where applicable, you also agree to opt out of any class proceedings against OneLedger. If you have a Claim, you should give written notice to arbitrate at the address specified below. If we have a Claim, we will give you notice to arbitrate at your address or contact information we have on file (if any). Arbitration will be conducted by one arbitrator pursuant to the commercial arbitration laws and rules in effect on the date of the notice in Barbados.
To the extent arbitration as described in the immediately preceding paragraph is prohibited by applicable law, you agree that all Claims will be heard and resolved in a court of competent jurisdiction located in Barbados. You consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts over you, stipulate to the fairness and convenience of proceeding in such courts, and covenant not to assert any objection to proceeding in such courts.
If you choose to access Syndicate Bridge from locations other than Barbados, you will be responsible for compliance with all local laws of such other jurisdiction and you agree to indemnify OneLedger and the other Released Parties for your failure to comply with any such laws.
