TERMS AND CONDITIONS
BY USING THE SITE AND THE SERVICES OFFERED BY KAKTANA, THE USER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT HE/SHE IS AWARE OF THE RISKS INVOLVED IN INVESTING IN THE CRYPTO-ACTIVE MARKET.
CRYPTO-ACTIVE MARKETS ARE DECENTRALISED AND UNREGULATED, SO THE SERVICES PROVIDED BY KAKTANA COVER UNREGULATED MARKETS THAT ARE NOT REGULATED BY ANY SPECIFIC EUROPEAN FRAMEWORK. AS A RESULT, THE USER IS AWARE THAT, WHEN OPERATING IN SUCH MARKETS, HE OR SHE DOES NOT BENEFIT FROM THE PROTECTIONS OFFERED TO REGULATED INVESTMENT SERVICES CLIENTS.
THE USER UNDERSTANDS AND ACCEPTS THAT THE INFORMATION RELATES TO FINANCIAL PRODUCTS WITH A HIGH LEVEL OF RISK THAT IS NOT SUITABLE FOR MANY INVESTORS. KAKTANA PROVIDES INVESTMENT AUTOMATION SERVICES ON CRYPTO-ACTIVES THROUGH THE USER'S OWN CONFIGURATION. IT DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A GUARANTEE OF EARNINGS OR INVESTMENT ADVICE. IT IS IMPORTANT TO FULLY UNDERSTAND THE RISKS INVOLVED BEFORE DECIDING TO INVEST (TRADING OR HOLDING) IN THE CRYPTO-ACTIVE MARKET (CRYPTO-CURRENCY, TOKEN, ETC...). THE USER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT HE/SHE FULLY UNDERSTANDS THE RISKS BEFORE DECIDING TO INVEST IN CRYPTO-ASSETS AND MUST HAVE THE FINANCIAL RESOURCES TO BEAR THESE RISKS AS WELL AS CAREFULLY MONITOR HIS/HER POSITIONS.
INVESTING IN THE CRYPTO-ACTIVE MARKET, OF ANY KIND, PRESENTS A RISK TO YOUR CAPITAL. YOU MUST NOT INVEST MONEY THAT YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO LOSE.
refers to a complete list of all completed transaction blocks since the beginning of Bitcoin. In order to enhance system security, the Blockchain has been designed so that each block of transactions contains the Hash produced from the previous block. The Blockchain is a technology for storing and transmitting information at minimal cost, secure, transparent and operating without a central control body. By extension, the Blockchain refers to a secure and distributed database (because it is shared by its various users), containing a set of transactions whose validity can be verified by everyone. The Blockchain can therefore be compared to a public, anonymous and unforgeable accounting ledger.
refers to all the assets linked to the Blockchain such as: crypto-currencies, tokens, etc....
refers to a peer-to-peer and decentralized electronic money whose implementation is based on cryptographic principles to validate transactions and the generation of the currency itself. Unlike traditional currencies that are printed, crypto-currencies are created by solving mathematical problems based on cryptography
refers to a branch of mathematics that creates codes and numbers that can be used to hide information. Cryptography is used as the basis for the mathematical evidence used to verify and secure transactions.
refers to a marketplace where crypto-assets are exchanged among themselves or for fiduciary currencies. This makes it possible to invest or speculate on the price of crypto-assets (e. g. Binance, Gate.io, Bittrex, etc.).
refers to the creation of an alternative version of the Blockchain. The cause of this fork can be either malicious, accidental due to a bug or intentional when developers decide to introduce new features. The longest version of the Blockchain becomes the main version.
refers to a mathematical process that, from a quantity of input data, produces an output of a fixed size. The hash function has two important characteristics: first, it is mathematically difficult to identify the initial data by looking at the output data; second, by changing a tiny part of the initial input, the output data is then completely changed. The Hash is the result of a hash function.
refers to keeping a crypto-active and not selling it regardless of price variations (up/down).
refers to a program whose source code is accessible and publicly distributed via, most often, the Internet.
"P2P (Peer-to-peer) / Peer-to-peer"
refers to systems that allow multiple computers to communicate with each other over a network and share information. The particularity of peer-to-peer architectures lies in the fact that data is transferred directly between two workstations connected to the network, without passing through a central server. It thus allows all computers to play the role of client and server directly.
"Token / Tokens"
refers to the assets issued in a unique way for each cryptocurrency or project. For example, the Ethers are the Tokens of the Ethereum network.
The purpose of these General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "T&C") is to define the terms and conditions, as well as the rights and obligations of Users in connection with the use of the https://kaktana.com Platform and the services offered on the site (hereinafter "SERVICES"). They come into force on the date they are put online on the Platform and are therefore enforceable against any User, for the entire duration of its use.
The User's acceptance of the T&Cs as indicated above and the version of the General Terms and Conditions as accepted by the User are stored and archived in the computer systems in an unalterable, secure and reliable manner.
The said T&Cs are in particular accessible and printable at any time by a direct link at the bottom of the home page of the site.
They may be supplemented, where necessary, by conditions of use specific to certain Services. In case of contradiction, the special conditions prevail over these general conditions.
3. SERVICE OPERATOR

4. ACCESS TO THE SITE AND SERVICES
Users are personally responsible for setting up the IT and telecommunications resources required to access the Site. They shall bear the cost of telecommunications when accessing the Internet and using the Site.
Users are fully responsible for the proper functioning of their computer equipment, modem and telephone line, as well as their connection to the Internet. Users will have taken care to ensure that this equipment does not present a problem or virus and provides sufficient security to prevent the risk that a third party may obtain access to data relating to the Services provided to customers.
Users will do their utmost to preserve this security. Users shall in particular ensure that there is no risk of hostile programs or viruses accessing and disrupting the Platform's computer systems. In particular, customers will ensure the security of their computer by using and regularly updating anti-virus and anti-spyware software as well as a personal firewall.
Users assume the technical risks related in particular to a power failure, interruption of connections, malfunction or overload of networks or systems.
In addition, Users are aware that they must contact the Internet service provider of their choice to access the Internet and the Platform. In this context, Users are aware that it is their responsibility to select their Internet service provider and to determine the terms of their relationship with it. KAKTANA cannot be held responsible for risks relating to Internet access and risks relating to the remote transmission of data by Users or to Users, in particular in the event of conﬂit between Users and this Internet access provider, in connection with the character conﬁdentiel/personnel of the data transmitted, the cost of transmission, the maintenance of telephone lines and the Internet network or service interruptions.
The Services are accessible, subject to the restrictions set out on the site:
5.1 HOLDING AND TRADING RISK OF CRYPTO-ASSETS
KAKTANA IS IN NO WAY A SERVICE OF INVESTMENT FUND THE SITE AND THE SERVICES OFFERED ARE ONLY INTENDED TO ASSIST AND AUTOMATE THE USER'S INVESTMENTS.
The User is aware that the markets for crypto-actives are decentralized and unregulated markets. The Site and the Services offered by KAKTANA therefore include unregulated markets that are not governed by any specific European framework. In other words, and unlike "traditional" financial assets, the Central Bank cannot take corrective measures that could protect the value of crypto-assets in the event of a crisis or issue more assets on the markets.
CRYPTO-ACTIVE MARKETS ARE DETERMINED BY SUPPLY AND DEMAND. This market is a dynamic one and the corresponding prices are often extremely unpredictable and volatile. Crypto-active prices are generally not transparent, highly speculative and susceptible to market manipulation. In the worst case scenario, the asset may be reduced to zero. Also, the User acknowledges that he is aware that crypto-actives, due to their lack of regulation, are likely to be misused for illegal activities due to the anonymity of transactions. Law enforcement and financial market regulators are therefore likely to investigate suspected illegal activities that could harm the investor. CONSEQUENTLY, CRYPTO-ASSETS MUST BE CONSIDERED AN EXTREMELY HIGH-RISK ASSET AND THE USER WILL ALWAYS HAVE TO INVEST FUNDS THAT HE CAN AFFORD TO LOSE. THE USER MUST THEREFORE UNDERSTAND THAT INVESTMENT IN CRYPTO-ACTIVE MARKETS IS NOT SUITABLE FOR ALL INVESTORS.
The User therefore understands that he or she should not invest in crypto-actives unless he or she has the necessary knowledge and expertise, understands the characteristics of these products and your exposure to risk.
THE USER OF THE SITE AND THE SERVICES OFFERED UNDERSTANDS AND ACCEPTS THAT KAKTANA IS NOT INTENDED TO SUBSTITUTE THE USER FOR THE KNOWLEDGE THAT THE USER MUST HAVE FOR HIS OR HER INVESTMENTS IN THE CRYPTO-ACTIVE MARKETS.
Indeed, the risk of loss in crypto-active trading can be considerable. The User must therefore carefully examine whether investment in this type of market is appropriate for him in view of his situation and financial resources. The User understands that a total loss of the invested funds is possible.
5.2 BLOCKCHAIN RISK
BLOCKCHAIN is an independent public peer-to-peer network that is independent of any European legislation or regulation. The User understands that errors, mistakes and/or violations may occur in the BLOCKCHAIN and could result in the loss of funds invested in the crypto-active markets. Also, the User understands that it is bound and subject to any change and/or modification in the BLOCKCHAIN system and is subject to any applicable law that may apply to the BLOCKCHAIN. While KAKTANA may provide information regarding legislative and regulatory changes that may occur, the Site and the Services offered by KAKTANA are not intended to provide any warranty and give no guarantee, express or implied, statutory or otherwise, regarding the functionality, legislation in force or security in the BLOCKCHAIN.
5.3 RISKS RELATED TO CRYPTO-CURRENCY PROTOCOLS
The User understands the crypto-actives are controlled by underlying software that govern the operation of the crypto-actives that can be exchanged on the various existing Exchange. As a general rule, the underlying protocols are Open Source and, therefore, anyone can use, copy, modify and distribute them. These protocols may be subject to sudden changes in operating rules ("Forks") and these Forks may impact the value, function and even the name of the crypto-active. The User therefore understands that the information provided by the Site and the Services offered by KAKTANA cannot predict the Forks and their impact on the value of cryptomonnaies.
5.4 RISKS RELATED TO THIRD PARTIES
The funds invested and orders issued by the Investor are executed by third parties (Exchange). These third parties are not banks and do not hold their currency/virtual currency as a deposit. If such a third party loses money, fails or goes bankrupt, there is no specific legal protection that covers you for losses arising from the funds you may have held with that third party, even if that party is registered with a national authority. The Site and Services offered by KAKTANA cannot predict the risks associated with these third party holders (Exchange). Indeed, depending on the structure and security of the digital portfolio, some may be vulnerable to piracy, resulting in the theft of virtual currency or the loss of investor assets. KAKTANA, despite the information provided, will not be liable for any losses caused by these third parties.
6. ACCEPTANCE OF THE GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The acceptance of these general terms and conditions by Users is evidenced by a checkbox to be ticked when they register.
The acceptance of these general conditions can only be full and complete. Any membership subject to reservation is considered null and void. The User who does not agree to be bound by these terms and conditions must not access the Site or use the Service.
KAKTANA may, at its discretion, change or amend these terms and conditions at any time.
Users will be notiﬁés of these changes by email. It is the User's responsibility to read the revised terms and conditions and to accept them explicitly before accessing the Site again.
