You agree to timely pay such Taxes and provide us with documentation showing the payment, or additional evidence that we may reasonably require. Pontem uses the name and address in your account registration as the place of supply for tax purposes, so you must keep this information accurate and up-to-date.
If you want to dispute any Fees or Taxes, please contact Pontem within thirty (30) days of the date of the disputed invoice. Undisputed amounts past due may be subject to a finance charge of 1.5% of the unpaid balance per month. If any amount of your Fees are past due, we may suspend your access to the Services after we provide you notice of late payment.
We reserve the right to modify, expand, or discontinue any Product or Service, at any time and without notice, in our sole discretion.

Cryptographic tokens, systems, and technologies carry inherent risks. By using or interacting with the Products and Services, you represent that you are familiar with blockchain technology and aware of their inherent risks, including risks of theft or loss of your assets.

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY—IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT
The parties shall use their best efforts to resolve any dispute, claim, questions, or disagreement through good faith negotiations.
In the event that the dispute cannot be resolved satisfactorily within 30 days from the first date of notice of the dispute, either party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve the claims.
All claims arising out of or relating to these Terms, including the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, and formation of the Terms, the enforceability of the Dispute Settlement provision, the parties’ relationship with each other, your access and use of the Products and Services, shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures, and not as a plaintiff or class member in a purported class or representative action. You and Pontem further agree to waive any right for such claims to be brought, heard, or arbitrated as a class, collective, representative, or private attorney general action, to the extent permissible by applicable law. Combining or consolidating individual arbitrations into a single arbitration is not permitted without the consent of all parties, including Pontem.
The seat of the arbitration shall be New York, New York. Both parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any federal and state court in New York, New York, for the sole purpose of compelling arbitration, confirming, modifying, vacating or entering judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
Awards entered into through arbitration shall be final and binding on the parties.
The Services use experimental artificial intelligence (“AI”) technology and may sometimes provide inaccurate or offensive content that doesn’t represent Pontem’s views. Use discretion before relying on, publishing, or otherwise using content provided by the Services. Don’t rely on the Services for medical, legal, financial, or other professional advice. Any content regarding those topics is provided for informational purposes only, such information will likely not be up to date – presently, the information available has not been updated since September 2021 – and is not a substitute for advice from a qualified professional.
You may provide input to the Services (“Input”), and receive output generated and returned by the Services based on the Input (“Output”). Input and Output are collectively referred to as “Content.” As between the parties and to the extent permitted by applicable law, you own all Input. Subject to your compliance with these Terms, Pontem hereby assigns to you all its right, title and interest in and to the Output. This means you can use Content for any purpose, including commercial purposes such as sale or publication, if you comply with these Terms. Pontem may use Content to provide and maintain the Services, comply with applicable law, and enforce our policies. You are responsible for Content, including for ensuring that it does not violate any applicable law or these Terms.
Due to the nature of machine learning, Output may not be unique across users and the Services may generate the same or similar output for Pontem or a third party. For example, you may provide input to a model such as “What color is the ocean?” and receive output such as “The ocean is teal.” Other users may also ask similar questions and receive the same response. Responses that are requested by and generated for other users are not considered your Content.
Artificial intelligence and machine learning are rapidly evolving fields of study. We are constantly working to improve our Services to make them more accurate, reliable, safe, and beneficial. Given the probabilistic nature of machine learning, use of our Services may in some situations result in incorrect Output that does not accurately reflect real people, places, or facts. You should evaluate the accuracy of any Output with caution, as appropriate for your use case, including by using human review of the Output.
Pontem does not allow the use of our models for the following:
We have further requirements for certain uses of our models:Consumer-facing uses of our models in medical, financial, and legal industries; in news generation or news summarization; and where else warranted, must provide a disclaimer to users informing them that AI is being used and of its potential limitations.
Automated systems (including conversational AI and chatbots) must disclose to users that they are interacting with an AI system. With the exception of chatbots that depict historical public figures, products that simulate another person must either have that person's explicit consent or be clearly labeled as “simulated” or “parody” and are for entertainment purposes only.
Entire Agreement. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between the parties regarding the access and use of the Products and Services and will supersede all prior written or oral agreements between the parties. No usage of trade or other regular practice or method of dealing between the parties will be used to modify, interpret, supplement, or alter the Terms herein.
Modifications. Pontem Network reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify or replace the Terms at any time. The most current version of these Terms will be posted on our website. You are responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any such modifications. Use of the Products or Services by you after any modification constitutes your acceptance of the Terms as modified. If you do not agree to be bound by the modified Terms, then you may not use the Products or Services.
Waiver and Severability. If you do not comply with these Terms, and Pontem does not take action right away, this does not mean Pontem is giving up any of our rights. If any portion of these Terms is adjudged to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason or to any extent, the remainder of these Terms will remain valid and enforceable, and the invalid or unenforceable portion will be given effect to the greatest extent permitted by law.
