Steem Blockchain

The Steem blockchain is an open source, decentralised and public database system that incorporates both social networking and cryptocurrency features. Steem is a public project and the operators of Ureka.org are not responsible for Steem’s policies and terms of service.

Access, Accounts & Account Recovery on Steem

Browsing the public content from Steem is possible on Ureka.org without creating either an account on Ureka or having a Steem account. To post to Steem, via Ureka, you require both an account at Ureka.org and a Steem account. Ureka.org integrates third party services to facilitate the creation of Steem accounts and does not have any method of creating Steem accounts directly. As such, Ureka.org is not liable for any Steem accounts that are created via third parties. In the event that private keys are lost for an account created via third parties listed on Ureka.org, the third party account providers are responsible to act as the account’s trustee and to assist with account recovery.

Using Steem via Ureka requires you to have your own Ureka.org account and also a Steem account that you have authorised Ureka to use on your behalf.

In the event that comments are added in Ureka.org for posts that have been crossposted onto the Steem blockchain by a Ureka user who has not previously authorised their Steem account at Ureka.org: The Ureka system will automatically reproduce the comment on the Steem blockchain and will include the display name of the Ureka member in the version that will be visible on Steem. You agree to this reproduction of your content on the Steem blockchain in such circumstances. If you do not wish to have your content duplicated onto the Steem blockchain, then you must not reply to any posts that are part of the Steem blockchain (which can be identified by the presence of the Steem logo, voting button and payout details within the display area allotted to the post within the website's user interface). If you choose, in such circumstances, you may delete your comment on Ureka.org and it will also be removed from Steem.

No Liability for Third-Party Services and Content

In using our Services, you may view content or utilize services provided by third parties, including links to web pages and services of such parties (“Third-Party Content”). We do not control, endorse, or adopt any Third-Party Content and will have no responsibility for Third-Party Content including, without limitation, material that may be misleading, incomplete, erroneous, offensive, indecent, or otherwise objectionable in your jurisdiction. In addition, your dealings or correspondence with such third parties are solely between you and the third parties.

The Ureka Services

  1. As described in more detail below, the Services, among other things, provide in-browser (or otherwise local) software that facilitates the submission of STEEM transaction data to the Steem network without requiring you to access the STEEM command line interface.
  2. Account Names and Private Keys. You are solely responsible for maintaining the security of your Private Keys for Steem and any password phrase associated with your wallet and system accounts. 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 and Steem Dollars associated with your Steem account.
  3. No Password Retrieval for Steem. Ureka does not receive or store your Steem account password, or the unencrypted keys and addresses. Therefore, we cannot assist you with account password retrieval for Steem. The Ureka website does include a service of password recovery for your Ureka account ONLY. Ureka does not have it’s own Steem 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 Steem account. You are solely responsible for remembering your Steem account passwords. 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 and Steem Power you have associated with such Steem account will become inaccessible if you do not have your Steem account password.
  4. 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 Ureka. The Steem Network is operated by a decentralized network of independent third parties. Ureka 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.
  5. No Storage or Transmission of STEEM, Steem Dollars or Steem Power. Steem, in any of its forms (STEEM, Steem Dollars and Steem Power) is an intangible, digital asset. They exist only by virtue of the ownership record maintained in the Steem network. The Ureka 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 Ureka services. We do not guarantee that our Service can effect the transfer of title or right in any Steem, Steem Dollars or Steem Power.
  6. Relationship. Nothing in these Terms is intended to nor shall create any partnership, joint venture, agency, consultancy or trusteeship, you and Ureka being with respect to one another are independent contractors.
  7. Accuracy of Information. You represent and warrant that any information you provide via these Services is accurate and complete. You accept and acknowledge that Ureka is not responsible for any errors or omissions that you make in connection with any Steem transaction initiated via the Ureka 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.
  8. No Cancellations or Modifications. Once transaction details have been submitted to the Steem network via the Ureka Services, the Services cannot assist you to cancel or otherwise modify your transaction details. Ureka 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 cannot be modified or cancelled, 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 Ureka.org) this may assist you with mistakes in written content, votes and delegations etc.
  9. 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 agency. You agree that Ureka 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.

No Right To Cancel And/Or Reverse Steem Transactions

If you use a Service to which Steem, Steem Dollars or Steem Power 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.

Suspension or Termination of Service.

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, Ureka settings and drafts) in such without cost to you, including, for instance, in the event that you breach any term of these Terms.

Be advised that termination from Ureka has no effect on your ability to access the Steem network with other third party services.

Copyright Complaints

Ureka respects the intellectual property of others by not reading infringed content from the Steem blockchain. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, you may notify Ureka by contacting: info@Ureka.org.

You should note that if you knowingly misrepresent in your notification that the material or activity is infringing, you may be liable for any damages, including costs and legal fees, incurred by Ureka or the alleged infringer, as the result of Ureka’s relying upon such misrepresentation in or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing.

You should also note that while Ureka may have the ability to remove access to infringed content on Ureka.org, Ureka has no ability to remove content from the Steem Network or effect access by any other third party to any content stored on the Steem Blockchain. The reason being that transactions sent to the Steem blockchain are not stored on Ureka, nor does Ureka have any ability to modify or delete what is on the Steem Blockchain. Additionally, no third party has the technical or effectual ability to delete content found on the Steem Blockchain, just the ability to display the content in question.

In addition proper notification given to Ureka does not have to be relayed to other third party services and should not be expected to have any impact any third party interface to the Steem Network. Likewise notification to other third party interfaces of Steem Blockchain should not be expected to be relayed to Ureka.
