1. About Blockchains And The Peermit Service

1.1 Blockchain And Account Information.

The Service does not send or receive money and never has nor will every have access to the tokens associated with your account or the accounts itself.

As a service provider, Peermit enables you to secure your tokens against intrusion into your systems. A customer will have a secured account (“account”) that is associated with the email address provided by the user.

By using the Service, instructions concerning your account’s tokens require approval by at least two authorities of which Peermit will be only one. The other authority will be the customer himself. The Service will make use of so called Proposals that request to execute some instructions that affect your account’s tokens.

1.2 Proposal Procedure and Second-Factor-Authentication

In order to transfer tokens from your account, a proposal has to be created that instruct a transfer and the Service as well as the customer have to manually approve.

Peermit’s approval solely depends on successful verification of the proposers identity by means of Second-Factor-Authentication (2FA), e.g. a link in an email sent to the owner of the account.

Once the blockchain network recognizes the proposal and the required approvals from the Service and the customer are validated, the instructions are executed. Neither other individuals or companies in the network nor the Service cannot be used by you to cancel or reverse these instructions.

The account is under sole control of the customer such that access to the tokens is granted by removing the requirement of the Service’s approval. Hence, customers can freely opt-out of the Service. It is the customer’s responsibility to secure the so cryptographic owner private key properly and verify the instruction of proposal before approval.

1.3 Key Management.

Key Management distinguishes

Peermit does not control full or partial access to your account’s owner authority.

Peermit controls only one of the active authorities required to access your account’s tokens.

You are solely responsible for maintaining the security of the other private keys associated with the spending permission and account owner permission. In the event you appoint a third party to control one or more of your private key(s), whether or not such appointment is made through the Service (e.g, through a key recovery service), Peermit is not responsible for the action or inaction of such third party.

You may change or remove these permissions from the account settings page.
