The Users and the Customer acknowledge that the Platform aims to provide subscription services to automated investment portfolios in cryptocurrencies and virtual assets based on specialized algorithms ("Strategy") available on the Platform, in order to carry out transactions on cryptocurrency exchange sites, external to Ridian (the "Exchange"), through the use of electronic digital devices, such as: computer, smartphone, tablet, etc. (the "Services"). In that sense, in order to perform the Services, the Customer shall:

- create an account with Ridian, in which the Customer's transactions and operations will be recorded in accordance with these Terms;
- choose the Exchange of use;
- insert Customer’s API Keys (as such term is defined below) to connect Customer’s Exchange account or sub-account, or connect your account/sub-account through Single Sign-On ("SSO") if available on the Platform;
- choose among the Strategies offered by Ridian in its Platform;
- determine the amount and/or percentage of resources in the Customer’s account or sub-account of the corresponding Exchange that the Customer wishes to be traded under the Strategy chosen by him/her.
In addition, the Customer may at any time:
- pause or suspend and/or change the chosen Strategy;
- delete Customer’s API Keys (as such term is defined below) from the Ridian Platform and delist your account or sub-account, if any, from the corresponding Exchange; and/or
- delete the Customer’s account on the Ridian Platform.
The Services are provided in the Software as a Service modality which implies that the Customer receives the services in the cloud, either temporarily free of charge or in exchange for a monthly or annual fee, with direct and recurring charge(s) to a debit and/or credit card that the Customer has selected and that the Customer has previously linked in the Platform to receive the Services.
The User and the Customer agree to comply with each and every one of the procedures that the applicable laws indicate regarding the acquisition of online or digital services, and, for its part, Ridian agrees to respect and enforce the rights of the User and Customers and to make proper use of the data (including personal data) that are processed for this purpose, according to the Privacy Notice that is on the Platform and that for easy reference you can consult here: https://ridian.zendesk.com/hc/es-mx/articles/9784039203469-Pol%C3%ADtica-de-Privacidad
The following provisions shall apply in connection with the Services offered through the Platform:
- The User does not need to register in order to browse the Site and/or the Platform. At the moment he/she decides to register and create an account, he/she will cease to be a User and will become, Ipso Iure, a Customer. Likewise, the Customer may choose the Exchange he/she wishes to connect to the Platform and subsequently authorize its connection through any of the following ways: (1) manually enter the Application Programming Interface Keys (hereinafter, "API Keys") that will allow the connection between the Customer's personal portfolio (hosted on his/her Exchange) and the Platform, or (2) select the SSO available for the Customer and/or Exchange on the Platform, whose practical effect will be the same as numeral 1 above. To authorize the connection described in number 1 above, the Customer shall follow the instructions indicated on the Platform to that effect.
- Once Customer has linked its personal portfolio hosted on its Exchange with the Platform, Customer shall choose any of the Strategies that Ridian makes available and select through the Platform. For all legal purposes, Ridian's Services shall be deemed to start at the time Customer connects his/her personal portfolio hosted in his/her Exchange and chooses a Strategy.
- Ridian's Services will be provided at all times through the Platform. At no time will Ridian have custody of the cryptocurrencies or any assets held in the e-wallets owned by the Customer. However, Ridian will have access to them in order to execute buy and sell operations, in the name and on behalf of the Customer, in accordance with the Strategy chosen by the latter. The Platform will only store information relating to the Customer's API Keys and the personal data described in our Privacy Notice made available on the Platform.
- The Customer may, at any time, stop the investment Strategy, such that Ridian will stop making transactions until such time as the Customer does not reactivate a Strategy.
- The Customer may, at any time, perform discretionary transactions within his/her exchange account connected to Ridian. However, in the event the Customer uses the full amount originally allocated to an activated trading strategy, it will be affected by such transaction(s), and therefore, the trading strategy will be paused, and the buy and sell signals to be sent to the Customer's exchange account will be stopped. Nevertheless, the Customer understands, acknowledges, and agrees that if the Customer uses, for any purpose, less than the amount originally allocated to an investment strategy, such strategy will continue to execute trades within the Customer's exchange account, solely with the remainder of the original unused resources.
- In the event that at any time the Strategy previously activated by the Client has been stopped for any circumstance: (i) the Client may reactivate or select a new strategy on the Platform; (ii) the Client may request Ridian to activate or reactivate the Strategy so that Ridian may do so on behalf of and for the account of the Client; (iii) Ridian may contact the Client via registered mail to ask if he/she requires the Strategy to be reactivated or a different one to be activated, whereby in case of the Client so instructs, Ridian may do the reactivation or activation of a Strategy on behalf of and for the account of the Client.
- At any time and without prior notice, Customer may suspend or terminate the Ridian Services by (i) removing the API Keys from the Platform; (ii) canceling the subscription to the Services, and/or (iii) deleting its Ridian account. Upon Customer's removal of such connection or termination of the subscription, Ridian shall have no access or visibility to Customer's personal portfolio hosted on the Exchange and therefore the provision of the Services shall be deemed suspended or terminated.
2. CONTRACTUAL USE OF THE PLATFORM.

19. SITE AND PLATFORM SECURITY MECHANISMS
Our Site and Platform have, among others, the following security mechanisms to protect the privacy of our Users/Customers and their data and information:
(i) The security mechanisms we have in place follow the principle of least accessibility, in which, each person within Ridian, only has access to the information and data indispensable to carry out his or her work; therefore, a very limited number of people within Ridian have access to the production environment of the Platform and our Site.
(ii) users' private keys (API Keys) are encrypted at rest using the Fernet recipe, which provides symmetric encryption and data authentication; this ensures that the encrypted message or key cannot be manipulated or read without authorization.
(iii) Users and/or Customers, when creating their private keys, must specifically approve Ridian’s IP, so that only from our IP such keys will be useful, thus ensuring their protection and use.
(iv) We use the Cloud IDS (Cloud Intrusion Detection System) tool to detect intruders/trespassers and analyze traffic on our systems for suspicious traffic.
In the event that any term, condition or provision contained in these Terms is determined to be ineffective, illegal or unenforceable, the same may be severed from the text of these Terms hereof and the remaining clauses shall continue in full force and effect to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved to Ridian.
