Cryptocurrency Mining Considerations

NGD provides installation, configuration, hosting, and maintenance services to its customers. There are many things to consider when mining cryptocurrencies. It is your responsibility to fully investigate the pros, cons, and risks of cryptocurrency mining. NGD is not responsible for the cryptocurrency mining decisions of its customers.

Mining cryptocurrencies is risky for many reasons, including due to:

  • market volatility;
  • general market illiquidity;
  • lack of, and often changing, regulations;
  • potential for loss or theft of private keys or cryptocurrencies themselves;
  • uncertain future acceptance of cryptocurrencies;
  • uncertain future development of the networks and other infrastructure required to support and use cryptocurrencies; and
  • the high level of fraud in the crypto markets.

Governing Law

These Terms, the NGD Privacy Policy, and all matters arising out of or relating to the Website and the relationship between you and NGD generally (the “Subject Matters”), are governed by and will be interpreted by applying the laws of the State of Georgia, without regard to its conflict of law rules.

Disputes

You agree that any dispute related in any manner whatsoever to any portion of the Subject Matters will be submitted to one day of non-binding mediation before taking any other formal action to resolve the dispute. The mediation will be conducted in Atlanta, Georgia with a single mediator mutually selected by you and NGD.

If you are able to resolve a dispute with us through non-binding mediation, you agree that the dispute will be resolved by final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures in front of a sole arbitrator mutually selected by you and NGD. The arbitration will be conducted in Atlanta, Georgia. The arbitrator may not award punitive damages, consequential damages, or compensatory damages, although the arbitrator may require the losing party to reimburse the reasonable attorneys’ fees and other arbitration-related costs of the prevailing party.

You and NGD will split the cost of the mediator, arbitrator, and mediation and arbitration facilities, although you and NGD will each be responsible for your own respective other costs, including attorney’s fees, preparation fees, and travel costs (subject to an award by the arbitrator for one party to reimburse the other party for any such fees or costs).

An award rendered by the arbitrator is final, non-appealable and binding on you and NGD and may be entered and enforced in any court having jurisdiction.

Either you or NGD may bring suit in court for injunctive relief (as available) without first attending mediation or arbitration.

Miscellaneous

If any portion of these Terms is deemed unenforceable in any jurisdiction or context, such unenforceability will not affect any other portion of these Terms or make such portion unenforceable in any other jurisdiction or context. 

NGD may assign these Terms, in whole or in part, at any time with or without notice to you. However, you may not assign these Terms to any other person or entity.

If, at any time, NGD does not immediately enforce any of its rights under these Terms, we are not waiving those rights. We can enforce them at any time.

These Terms are the entire agreement (other than our Privacy Policy) between you and NGD regarding the Subject Matters unless you sign one or more Order Forms and a Colocation Hosting Agreement with us.
