KRAKEN LEGAL DISCLOSURES
Last updated: May 30, 2022
PLEASE READ THESE LEGAL DISCLOSURES CAREFULLY. BY ACCESSING OR USING THE SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO BE LEGALLY BOUND BY THESE DISCLOSURES.
Digital Assets. The term “digital asset(s)” does not refer to any legal or regulatory category under any national framework. The value of digital assets can be volatile and there can be a substantial risk that you lose money buying, selling, holding, or investing in digital assets. Each digital asset has unique features and you should research and understand an asset before you trade. Kraken is not an affiliate of the project teams of digital assets listed on Kraken’s platform.
Not Investment Advice. The information about digital assets on any Kraken website (including www.kraken.com and blog.kraken.com), the Kraken exchange, e-mails, or any other communications is for general information purposes only. Kraken does not provide investment, tax, or legal advice, and you are solely responsible for determining whether any investment, investment strategy or related transaction is appropriate for you based on your personal investment objectives, financial circumstances, and risk tolerance. The information should not be construed as a recommendation or solicitation to buy, sell, stake, or hold any digital asset or to open an account or engage in any specific trading strategy. You should consult your financial advisor, or legal or tax professional regarding your specific situation and financial condition and carefully consider whether trading, staking, or holding digital assets is suitable for you.
Kraken Ventures. Kraken holds tokens on its balance sheet for operational purposes or other reasons. Kraken Ventures, in which Kraken is a limited partner, is an investor in certain tokens. Kraken may therefore benefit from listing certain tokens on the platform. However, Kraken Ventures may be subject to a contractual lock-up for a period of time after its investment during which it cannot sell the tokens. All tokens, regardless of whether held by Kraken or Kraken Ventures, are subject to the same strict review process and guidelines in determining whether to make them available to trade on Kraken.
No Insurance. Digital assets and Kraken accounts are not covered by insurance against losses. They are not subject to Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or Securities Investor Protection Corporation protections in the United States or the protections of any comparable organization anywhere in the world.
