COMPANY

CM Terms of Use

 

Coin Metrics Inc. (“Coin Metrics“), has created this website (the “Website” or the “Site“) to provide an online resource for users to obtain information and data related to crypto assets (i.e., cryptocurrencies). To assist you in using the Website and associated Services, and to ensure a clear  understanding of the relationship arising from your use of the Website and participation in these Services, we have created (i) these Terms of Use (the “Terms“) and (ii) a Privacy Policy. Our Privacy Policy explains how we treat information you provide to us through the Site, and our Terms govern your use of our Site. Our Terms and Privacy Policy apply to (a) visitors to the Website who wish to obtain Data and Analytics, but who do not sign up for API data feeds (“Site Users”), and (b) users who have registered with Coin Metrics to receive API data feeds (“API Users“). The terms “Coin Metrics,” “we” and “us” refer to Coin Metrics Inc.

PLEASE READ THIS DOCUMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU ACCESS OR USE THE WEBSITE OR PARTICIPATE IN OUR SERVICES. BY ACCESSING THE WEBSITE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS SET FORTH BELOW. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, PLEASE DO NOT ACCESS OUR WEBSITE OR PARTICIPATE IN OUR SERVICES.

1. Your Agreement.

These Terms govern (i) your use of the Website, (ii) your receipt of and participation in Coin Metrics’s services offered through the Website (the “Services“), and (iii) your use of information obtained through the Website, including Data and Analytics, information, data, statistics, software, artwork, text, video, audio, pictures, content, trademarks, trade dress, and other intellectual property owned by Coin Metrics or its licensors and made available to you through the Services (“Coin Metrics Content”). Please read these Terms carefully; they impose legal obligations on you and on Coin Metrics, and establish our legal relationship. By using the Services or accessing our Website, you are acknowledging that you have read and understood these Terms and agree to be legally bound by them. If you are agreeing to these Terms and our Privacy Policy on behalf of a company or other legal entity (your “Organization”), (i) you represent and warrant that you have authority to act on behalf of, and to bind your Organization and (ii) for all purposes in these Terms and the Privacy Policy, the term “you” means your Organization on whose behalf you are acting. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE LEGAL AUTHORITY TO BIND YOUR ORGANIZATION, YOU MUST NOT ACCESS THE WEBSITE.

2. Our Services: Overview.

The Website is designed to provide an online resource for reviewing Data and Analytics related to crypto assets. For example, you may use the Website to obtain daily crypto asset data sets of either crypto asset network or market data (“Data”). You may also obtain correlations and other derived analytics of the various Data that we or our licensors have generated (“Analytics”). You may also register with the Website to receive API data feeds of Data and Analytics for use in your applications. We may also offer paid subscriptions for products from time to time – if we do so, your use of such products will be subject to a separate license agreement between you and Coin Metrics.

3. Obtaining a Password or Access Credential; Protecting Your Password/Credentials.

We may make certain areas of the Website accessible only to users that have a password or other access credentials such as an API key. Please keep in mind that we will treat anyone who uses your user name and password/access credentials as “you.” We will provide this user with all of the rights and privileges that we provide to you, and we will hold you responsible for the activities of a person using your account. Therefore, we recommend that you maintain your user name and password/access credentials in confidence, and that you refrain from disclosing this information to anyone outside of your Organization who might “pretend” to be you with respect to the Website and your participation in the Services. For clarity, to the extent a single set of access credentials (user name and password or API key) is established for you / your Organization (“Access Credentials”), these Access Credentials may be used by authorized representatives within your Organization, provided that you / your Organization remains responsible for the use of the Website and any Coin Metrics Content obtained by anyone accessing the Website using your Access Credentials. For the avoidance of doubt, you shall not permit any third parties to access the Website using the your Access Credentials. We also ask that you notify us immediately if you suspect that someone is using your user name and/or password and/or API key in this or any inappropriate manner.

7. Code of Conduct.

As a condition to your use of the Website and the Services, you agree to follow our Code of Conduct, set out below. Under this Code, you will not:

  • Provide false identification information to obtain access to the Website or Services.
  • Access the Website or Services to develop or implement a product or service that will act as a substitute for or otherwise compete with the Website or Services.
  • Upload, email or otherwise transmit any images or other User Content that is unlawful, obscene, harmful, hateful, invade the privacy of any third party, contain nudity or pornography, or is otherwise objectionable.
  • Disseminate materials that impact or invade the privacy of others, such as photographs, video clips, sound recordings, personally identifiable information, or other materials that reveal personal, private or sensitive information about another person, without that person’s consent.
  • Submit material that is intentionally false, defamatory, unlawfully threatening, or unlawfully harassing.
  • Infringe any third party’s copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret, or other proprietary rights or rights of publicity or privacy. Electronic materials – such as music, videos, games, images, and text in electronic form — can easily be copied, modified and sent over networks (such as the Internet). These electronic materials are thus extremely vulnerable to unauthorized distribution and copyright infringement. These materials may not be transmitted over the Website without the copyright owner’s permission, or without a legitimate “fair use” justification for the transmittal.
  • Transmit materials that contain any viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots, or other computer-programming routines that are intended to damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept, or expropriate any system, data, or personal information.
  • Use the Website to artificially generate traffic or page links to a website or for any other purpose not expressly allowed under these Terms.
  • Use the Website in a manner that could disable, overburden, or impair the Website or Services or interfere with any other party’s use and enjoyment of the Website and Services, such as through sending “spam” email.
  • Use the Website to test or reverse engineer the Website in order to find limitations, vulnerabilities or to evade filtering capabilities.
  • Seek to obtain access to any materials or information through “hacking,” “data harvesting,” “web scraping,” or through other means we have not intentionally made available to you through the Website.
  • Use VPNs, proxy servers, or other means to hide the true source of traffic or to circumvent any rate limits we impose on our users.
  • Use the Website for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by these Terms. For example, you will not use the Website to violate any law, statute, or regulation (including, without limitation, those governing export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, antidiscrimination, or false advertising).

In exchange for access to the Website and Services, Registered Users shall pay to Coin Metrics a monthly subscription fee (the “Subscription Fee”), as set forth in the registration screen at the time of registration.
