Certain services may be subject to additional terms and conditions specified by us from time to time, and your use of such services is subject to those additional terms and conditions, which are hereby incorporated into these Terms by reference.
Truss Chain does not endorse or recommend any particular Asset-Backed Token, transaction, or purchasing strategy. No content on the Truss Chain website nor communications with company personnel constitutes purchase or investment advice. Independent advice should be sought where appropriate.

Please read this agreement carefully to ensure that you understand each provision.
1. Use of Our Service
This is a contract between you and Truss Chain. You must read and agree to these Terms before using the Service. If you do not agree, you may not use the Service. You may use the Service only if you can form a legally binding contract with Truss Chain, and only if you are in compliance with these Terms and all applicable local, national, and international laws, rules and regulations. Any use or access to the Service by anyone under 18 is strictly prohibited and in violation of these Terms. The Service is not available to any Users previously removed from the Service by Truss Chain.
Our security tokens and traditional securities underlying our tokens are registered according to Mongolian securities laws and regulations. Citizens and residents of the United States and the People's Republic of China and any other jurisdictions where security tokens are illegal or subject to additional registration requirements are not eligible to use our service with the exception of accredited investors in the United States. Such accredited investors may be asked for additional documents to verify their accredited status during the KYC and user registration process.
B. Truss Chain Service
The Service allows you to buy and sell Asset-Backed Tokens on TREE with other Users. To trade an Asset-Backed Token to Truss Chain, you submit a trade order. To submit an order, you first (i) select the Asset-Backed Token that you want to “Buy” or “Sell” with the Truss token (TRS); (ii) Set the amount of the ABT you wish to trade and (iii) set the limit price in TRS. Note that Aa limit order is an order to buy or sell an asset at a specific price or better. A buy limit order can only be executed at the limit price or lower, and a sell limit order can only be executed at the limit price or higher. A limit order is not guaranteed to execute. The trade is executed when a buyer or seller submits a corresponding order at the same or better price. Note that only a portion of your order may be executed. Also, there is no guarantee that your order will be executed at all in the case that another user does not submit a corresponding order. Truss Chain may charge you a trading fee to process the trade. Truss Chain will post publicly the fee schedule if and when imposed and will inform the User at the time of the order submission what the fee may be. Truss Chain may change the fee at any time, but will update the fee schedule to inform Users. Truss Chain, at its discretion, may modify or update the Service, in whole or in part at any time.
Subject to these Terms, you are hereby granted a non-exclusive, limited, non-transferable, freely revocable license to access and use the Service for your use and as permitted by the features of the Service. You are prohibited from using Truss Chain for any illegal or fraudulent purposes or for the purpose of consummating transactions for any other parties. For the avoidance of doubt, you must be the beneficial owner of the Asset-Backed Tokens, as well as the sending address and the destination address for any trade within TREE or any digital asset transaction to or from the Truss Platform.

You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that Mongolia is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
B. Arbitration. Read this section carefully because it requires the parties to arbitrate their disputes and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from Truss Chain. For any dispute with Truss Chain, you agree to first contact us at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Truss Chain has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by in accordance with Mongolian law in force on the date on which the notice of arbitration is submitted in accordance with those rules. The arbitration will be conducted in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, in Mongolian with English translation available upon request, unless you and Truss Chain agree otherwise. If you are using the Service for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any Arbitration Institution fees, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with Arbitration Institution rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using the Service for non-commercial purposes: (i) Arbitration Institution may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from Arbitration Institution; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney’s fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing Truss Chain from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights.
A. Assignment. These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Truss Chain without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
B. Notification Procedures and Changes to these Terms.

Truss Chain reserves the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to our Users, provided that you may opt out of certain means of notification as described in these Terms. Truss Chain is not responsible for any automatic filtering you or your network provider may apply to email notifications we send to the email address you provide us. Truss Chain may, in its sole discretion, modify or update these Terms from time to time, and so you should review this page periodically.

C. Entire Agreement/Severability. These Terms, together with any additional terms, amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Truss Chain in connection with the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Truss Chain concerning the Service. If any provision of these Terms is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which shall remain in full force and effect.
D. No Waiver. No waiver of any term of these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Truss Chain’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
