5. Adult-Oriented Content

TravelFeed is intended for a general audience and, as a result, some TravelFeed Content may discuss or depict adult-oriented topics. We realize that this content may not be appropriate or desirable for some of our readers depending on their current location, age, background or personal views. As a result, you, other TravelFeed users and in general all Steem blockchain users are expected to mark this content as Not Safe For Work ("NSFW"). But we prefer no Adult content at all on our platforms.

The marking of Steem blockchain Content as "NSFW" does not guarantee the prevention of you (or other Steem blockchain users, including TravelFeed users) from being able to access this content but, instead, helps all users to make informed decisions about the type of content they prefer to view on TravelFeed.

It is possible that some Steem blockchain users (inside and outside of TravelFeed) may not use the "nsfw" designation (mistakenly or purposefully) and thus you acknowledge that it is possible that you may still experience adult-oriented topics even while using the TravelFeed website or dApp. If you encounter any adult-oriented content on TravelFeed that is not marked as "nsfw", we will remove access to this content from TravelFeed when notified.

9. The TravelFeed Services

As described in more detail below, the services, among other things, provide in-browser (or otherwise local), dApp, software that (a) Generates and stores Steem account addresses and encrypted private keys (defined below), and (b) Facilitates the submission of Steem transaction data to the Steem network without requiring you to access the Steem command line interface.

  1. Account names and private keys: When you create an account, the services generate and store a cryptographic private and public key pair that you may use to send and receive Steem, Steem Dollars and tokens via the Steem network. The private key uniquely matches the account name and must be used in connection with the account name to authorize the transfer of Steem and Steem Dollars from that account. You are solely responsible for maintaining the security of your private key and any password phrase associated with your wallet or TravelFeed account. You must keep your account, password phrase and private key access information secure. Failure to do so may result in the loss of control of Steem, Steem Power, Steem Dollars, Miles Token associated with the wallet.
  2. No Password Retrieval: TravelFeed does not receive or store your account password, or the unencrypted keys and addresses. Therefore, we cannot assist you with account password retrieval.

TravelFeed does not have account creation services however we do connect to third party systems that do. It is typical practice of third party new account creation services to provide you with tools to help you remember or recover your password, including by allowing you to set password hints, but even these services cannot generate a new password for your account. You are solely responsible for remembering your account password. If you have not safely stored a backup of any account Names and password pairs maintained in your account, you accept and acknowledge that any Steem, Steem Dollars, Steem Power or Miles Token you have associated with such account will become inaccessible if you do not have your account password.

  • Transactions: In order to be completed, all proposed Steem transactions must be confirmed and recorded in the Steem public ledger via the Steem distributed consensus network (a peer-to-peer economic network that operates on a cryptographic protocol), which is not owned, controlled or operated by TravelFeed. The Steem Network is operated by a decentralized network of independent third parties. TravelFeed has no control over the Steem network and therefore cannot and does not ensure that any transaction details you submit via the services will be confirmed via the Steem network. You acknowledge and agree that the transaction details you submit via the services may not be completed, or may be substantially delayed, by the Steem network. You may use the services to submit these details to the network.
  • No Storage or Transmission of Steem, Steem Dollars, Steem Power or Miles Token: Steem, in any of its forms (Steem, Steem Dollars, Steem Power and Miles Token) is an intangible, digital asset. They exist only by virtue of the ownership record maintained in the Steem network. The service does not store, send or receive Steem. Any transfer of title that might occur in any Steem, Steem Dollars or Steem Power occurs on the decentralized ledger within the Steem network and not within the TravelFeed services. We do not guarantee that our service can affect the transfer of title or right in any Steem, Steem Dollars, Steem Power or Miles Token.
  • Relationship: Nothing in these terms is intended to nor shall create any partnership, joint venture, agency, consultancy or trusteeship, you and TravelFeed being with respect to one another are independent contractors.
  • Accuracy of Information: You represent and warrant that any information you provide via these services is accurate and complete. You accept and acknowledge that TravelFeed is not responsible for any errors or omissions that you make in connection with any Steem transaction initiated via the services, for instance, if you mistype an account name or otherwise provide incorrect information.

We strongly encourage you to review your transaction details carefully before completing them via these services.

  • No Cancellations or Modifications: Once transaction details have been submitted to the Steem network via the services, The services cannot assist you to cancel or otherwise modify your transaction details. TravelFeed has no control over the Steem Network and does not have the ability to facilitate any cancellation or modification requests.

While a transaction submitted to the Steem network can not be modified or canceled, you are allowed and encouraged to make new transactions that can change the present state of the presented information on interfaces to the Steem Blockchain (such as travelfeed.io or the dApp) this may assist you with mistakes in written content, votes, delegation etc.

  • Taxes: It is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to the transactions you for which you have submitted transaction details via the services, and it is your responsibility to report and remit the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority. You agree that TravelFeed is not responsible for determining whether taxes apply to your Steem transactions or for collecting, reporting, withholding or remitting any taxes arising from any Steem transactions.
10. No Right To Cancel And/Or Reverse Steem Transactions

If you use a service to which Steem, Steem Dollars, Steem Power or Miles Tokens is transacted, you will not be able to change your mind or cancel this transaction once you have confirmed that you wish to proceed with the service or transaction.

11. Suspension or Termination of Services

We may suspend or terminate your access to these services in our sole discretion, immediately and without prior notice, and delete or deactivate all related information and files (such as, but not limited to, TravelFeed settings and drafts) in such without cost to you, including, for instance, in the event that you breach any term of these terms.
