Shopper agrees that they may only interact with the SOLYD Platform by means of text, email, web app or other technology specifically authorized by Solydaria for that purpose, and that Shopper must have a valid credit card, access to the Shopify platform, and either an active Venmo account linked to their phone number or an active wallet for receiving Bitcoin payments.

Cashback will only be paid to Shopper upon such completion or withdrawal of the Game.
Solydaria provides two methods of paying Cashback from Merchant to Shopper, as follows:
Cashout Modality 1 -- Paypal/Venmo
If Shopper selects Paypal/Venmo as their preferred method of receiving Cashback, Solydaria agrees to authorize PayPal to credit Shopper’s Venmo account to the phone number provided by Shopper. If Shopper has provided only an email address, Solydaria agrees to provide Shopper with instructions how to link their phone number to our service. In each case, Shopper’s phone number must be associated with an active Venmo account.
If Shopper’s phone number is not associated with an active Venmo account, Solydaia agrees to provide instructions to Shopper for creating a Venmo account for Shopper’s phone number. Solydaria agrees to maintain Shopper’s credit for Cashback for thirty (30) days following Solydaria’s initial authorization to PayPal, in order to allow Shopper time to establish a Venmo account. If Shopper fails to establish such an account within the thirty-day period, Shopper agrees that Solydaria may cancel’s the Shopper’s credit for Cashback in that Game.
If a Shopper selects Paypal/Venmo as their preferred payment method, then Shopper agrees to comply with Venmo’s user agreement https://venmo.com/legal/us-user-agreement/ in connection with such payments.
Cashout Modality 2 – Cash App/Bitcoin Wallet
If Shopper selects Cash App/Bitcoin Wallet as their preferred method for receiving Cashback payments, Solydaria agrees that within a reasonable time after completion or withdrawal of a SOLYD Promotion Game in which the Shopper is due to receive Cashback, Solydaria will send blockchain instructions to debit Solydaria’s Bitcoin wallet, and credit Shopper’s Bitcoin wallet. It is the sole responsibility of Shopper to provide Solydaria with the correct wallet address, and any losses that result from an incorrect wallet address, or any failure of Shopper’s wallet, are solely the responsibility of Shopper. Solydaria reserves the right, with respect to any Cashback payment, to delay payment of the Cashback amount for such time as may reasonably be required equired to verify that the Shopper’s credit card used to pay for the purchase generating the Cashback was not fraudulent.
Shopper acknowledges and agrees that the conversion rate of Bitcoin to and from U.S. dollars is a floating rate, and Solydaria may use a third-party rate quote service to convert Cashback based on a U.S. dollar-denominated purchase to Bitcoin. The conversion from U.S. dollars to Bitcoin takes place at the time Solydaria sends blockchain instructions for the Cashback payment to Shopper’s wallet.
If Shopper selects Cash App/Bitcoin Wallet as their preferred method for receiving Cashback payments, Shopper agrees to comply with Cash App’s user agreement. https://cash.app/legal/us/en-us/tos in connection with such payments.
Shopper acknowledges and agrees that all Cashback amounts will be calculated as a percentage of the Shopper’s net purchase amount under the rules of the applicable SOLYD Promotion Game, which excludes taxes, fees, shipping, gift-wrapping, discounts or credits, returns or cancellations, and extended warranties. Solydaria uses reasonable efforts to maintain a current list of exclusions, which can be found at this link [INSERT LINK] Shopper acknowledges and agrees that the list of exclusions is subject to change without notice, and Solydaria hereby disclaims any and all liability in connection with any incorrect information or failure to include information on the list of exclusions.

The validity, construction, and interpretation of this Agreement, and the rights and duties of the parties hereto, will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York in the United States, excluding its conflicts of laws principles. However, as explained below, the agreement to arbitrate in the following paragraph is governed by United States federal law.
You agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or in connection with Solydaria’s business or this Agreement or relating in any way to the SOLYD Platform or the Solydaria Properties shall be determined by binding arbitration. You further agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law shall govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to arbitrate, and any such arbitration hearing shall be heard in New York City.
Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and is more informal than a lawsuit in state or federal court. Discovery in arbitration is more limited than is generally available in the courts and the arbitrator’s decision is also subject to very limited appellate review by the courts.
You also agree to waive the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. These waivers are mutual as between you and Solydaria, and Solydaria waives its right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action against you. This means that neither you nor Solydaria can seek to assert class or representative claims against each other either in court or in arbitration and no relief can be awarded on a class or representative basis. The arbitrator also may not consolidate or join another person’s claim with your claim or issue an order that would achieve the same result. You and Solydaria further agree that if the provisions of this paragraph are found to be unenforceable, then the entire provision compelling arbitration shall be null and void.
You also agree that all issues are for the arbitrator to decide. This includes all issues related to the scope, application, interpretation and enforceability of this Agreement and this arbitration provision. The arbitrator shall also decide whether any claim is subject to arbitration.
The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.com. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. If you prevail in arbitration and your claim is for less than $10,000, Solydaria will reimburse you for filing fees at the conclusion of the proceeding unless your claim is found to be frivolous by the arbitrator.
You may not assign your rights and obligations under this Agreement, in whole or in part, without our prior written consent, and any such assignment without such consent will be null and void.
Headings under this Agreement intended only for convenience and shall not affect the interpretation of this Agreement.
Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, such invalidity shall not affect the remaining provisions.
This Agreement represents the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements or representations, written or oral ( including without limitation, earlier versions of this Agreement that may have been accepted by you) . We reserve the right to modify this Agreement at any time. Your non-termination and continued use of the SOLYD Platform or use of any Solydaria Property after modification of this Agreement will constitute affirmative acceptance by you of such modification and your consent to abide by any terms thereof.
