These Terms of Service are entered into by and between you, an individual user or site visitor, whether personally or on behalf of an entity (“user,” “you,” “your”) and The HBAR Foundation and any of its subsidiaries (“Company,” “we,” or “us”). The following terms and conditions (“Terms of Service”) govern your access to and use of the Company’s website located at www.hbarfoundation.org, including any content, functionality, and services offered on or through www.hbarfoundation.org (“Website”).
Please read the Terms of Service carefully before you start to use the Website. By using the Website, you accept and agree to be bound by and abide by these Terms of Service. If you do not want to agree to these Terms of Service, you must not access or use the Website.
Changes to the Terms of Service
We may revise and update these Terms of Service from time to time in our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when we post them and apply to all access to and use of the Website thereafter. However, any changes to the dispute resolution provisions set out in these Terms of Service will not apply to any disputes for which the parties have actual notice on or before the date the change is posted on the Website.
Your continued use of the Website following the posting of revised Terms of Service means that you accept and agree to the changes. You are expected to check this page each time you access the Website so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you. As long as you comply with these Terms of Service, the Company grants you a personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited privilege to enter and use the Website.

The Company operates a grant program under which it provides funding to certain qualified entrepreneurs, builders, and/or creators (“Program”). You can submit an application for funding through the Program on the Website (“Application”). By submitting an Application, you agree to be bound by these Terms of Service.

The information you provide to the Company in any Application shall be complete, accurate, and reliable and shall not violate the rights of third-parties, including intellectual property rights.
Providing funding under the Program is the right, but not the obligation of the Company. Nothing in these Terms of Service or during the Application process shall constitute any obligation on the part of the Company to enter into any future agreement or relationship with you. You acknowledge and agree that by submitting an Application and going through the Application process does not bind the Company in any way and does not provide you with a reasonable expectation of funding. The Company is not bound or obligated to provide you with any funding under the Program except under the terms set forth in a written and fully-executed grant agreement between you and the Company.

The parties shall use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement arising out of or relating to the subject matter of these Terms of Service, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, directly through good-faith negotiations, which shall be a precondition to either party initiating arbitration. If such negotiations do not resolve the dispute, it shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by JAMS in accordance with its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “Rules”), except the Parties will have the right to file early or summary dispositive motions and to request that JAMS’s Expedited Procedures apply regardless of the claim amount.
