If we discover that an individual under the age of 18 has provided personally identifiable information to us, we will make efforts to delete the individual’s information, along with the entire account in accordance with any applicable regulations.
Some parts or all the Services may not be available to the public, and we may impose eligibility rules from time to time. We reserve the right to amend or eliminate these eligibility requirements at any time.
Permission to Use Services
Subject to this Agreement, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use our Services for personal use and not for commercial resale or further distribution.

Our Services are protected by applicable intellectual property laws, including United States copyright law and international treaties.

If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, or we have reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, then we have the right to suspend or terminate your account.
Storage and Use of Data
If you elect to create a Cyder account, then you consent to allow us to securely store, anonymize, analyze, process and aggregate the data that you provide to us through the Platform solely for the purposes of providing you the Services, including (i) the ability to review and correct the accuracy of your data, (ii) to draw relevant analytics and insights from your data (iii) to download, export and or delete a copy of such data, or (iv) to license your aggregated data, in the form of insights, with participating businesses.
Where you elect to license your data or take other paid actions in exchange for a monetary reward, you agree that Cyder may represent this value in an account assigned to you, until such time as you are able to receive such funds as they become available. You agree and understand that to receive the value represented in your account, your account balance must meet a minimum value threshold and that you may be rewarded in credits, points, or other non-monetary means. You understand that if you delete your data or close your account, these outstanding balances are lost.
You own all data collected, stored, and shared through the Platform and you can manage your data through your personal dashboard. You choose what data you share within the Cyder Platform. You give Cyder an unlimited, royalty-free, and worldwide license to re-license your data with your consent and to use it to train our algorithms for the purpose of giving you the best service we possibly can and to increase the value of your data.
Cyder allows you to collect your data residing on certain Third-Party Platforms for use on the Cyder Platform when you link them to the Cyder network.

You further agree and acknowledge that no oral or written information or advice given by Cyder or a Cyder authorized representative shall create a warranty.
Limitations and Liability
We and our suppliers and licensors will not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of revenue, credits, earnings, profits, goodwill, use, data, privacy, or other intangible losses (even if we have been advised of the possibility of these damages), resulting from your use of our services.
