When you add funds to your Vida account, regardless of whether these funds are in fiat currency or Bitcoin, you are purchasing "Vida Credits" that can be used within the Vida platform to access or utilize the services and products we offer. Vida Credits are a measurement of your capacity to transact within the Vida service environment and should not be viewed as a deposit or an investment.

Vida Credits as Non-Fiduciary

The addition of funds to your Vida account and your subsequent purchase of Vida Credits does not establish Vida as a holder or custodian of your funds. Vida does not provide fiduciary services and explicitly disclaims any fiduciary obligations in connection with your use of the service. The credits in your account represent a limited license right governed by the terms of this service.

Withdrawal and Deposits of Funds

You acknowledge and agree that any funds contained in your Vida Wallet are subject to Vida’s approval for withdrawal or deposit. Vida reserves the right to deny any user’s request to withdraw or deposit funds if the user is found to be in violation of the Vida Terms of Service. Vida may determine violations of the Terms of Service on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration factors such as fraudulent activity, misuse of the platform, or any other actions that may pose a risk to the integrity of Vida’s services or its community. In the event that Vida determines a violation has occurred, Vida reserves the right to not release any funds contained in your Vida Wallet and may take additional actions as deemed necessary, which may include but are not limited to suspension or termination of your account. Please note that Vida’s determination of a violation and decision to withhold funds is final and binding. If you have any concerns or questions about the withdrawal or deposit of funds from your Vida Wallet, please contact Vida’s customer support for assistance.

Additionally, Vida reserves the right to hold funds from being eligible for withdrawal for a period of time. This hold period allows Vida to thoroughly investigate any potential violations and take appropriate action.

Payments can be issued by either adding funds to your Vida profile or by connecting an external wallet platform to your account. Connecting an external wallet (wallet) to your account represents you are the rightful owner of the connected wallet.

Funds added directly to your Vida account may include Bitcoin or U.S. Dollar (USD). Any USD funds added to account are referred to as Vida Credit. Transactions between users funded by Vida Credit may be entitled to a 30 day hold period before funds are released to the Vida user recipient. Vida may impose limits to any Vida Credit transactions and balances to comply with Anti-Money Laundering regulations. Monthly limitations for withdrawal and deposit will be enforced.

24. DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Informal NegotiationsTo expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy, or claim related to these Terms of Service (each "Dispute" and collectively, the "Disputes") brought by either you or us (individually, a "Party" and collectively, the "Parties"), the Parties agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating arbitration. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one Party to the other Party.

Binding ArbitrationIf the Parties are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) will be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WITHOUT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes ("AAA Consumer Rules"), both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Consumer Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by either Party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except where otherwise required by the applicable AAA rules or applicable law, the arbitration will take place in Travis, Texas. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.

If for any reason, a Dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration, the Dispute shall be commenced or prosecuted in the state and federal courts located in Travis, Texas, and the Parties hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction, and forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in such state and federal courts. Application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act (UCITA) are excluded from these Terms of Service.

In no event shall any Dispute brought by either Party related in any way to the Site be commenced more than one (1) years after the cause of action arose. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.

RestrictionsThe Parties agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between the Parties individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration shall be joined with any other proceeding; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.

Exceptions to Informal Negotiations and ArbitrationThe Parties agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of the intellectual property rights of a Party; (b) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy, or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for injunctive relief. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
