Terms of Service

We are currently in Beta testing. Our Beta testing version is only for USA users that are 18+ years of age. There may be some bugs and glitches with the browser, but we are working hard to catch them all. We appreciate your feedback to help us improve our browser. We take no responsibility for any issues it may cause.

This Terms of Service agreement governs your download and/or use of the executable code for the Ouroboros browser for computer's desktop software application, including any update or upgrade thereto ("Software"). These terms form a binding contract between you and Ouroboros Browser ("Ouroboros").

This is a contract:

a. These Terms of Service ("Terms"), along with Ouroboros's Privacy Policy, form a legally-binding contract between you and Ouroboros Browser. By using the Services (as defined below), you are agreeing to be legally bound by these Terms. If you don't agree with these Terms, you must discontinue using the Services.

b. As used in these Terms, the word "Services" applies to online services provided to you by Ouroboros through its software applications, websites and APIs.

Your access to the Services is subject to change. Ouroboros reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue the Services in whole or in part, and to terminate your access to the Services at any time, with or without notice. You agree that Ouroboros shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Services.

Ouroboros is not responsible for any damages you may incur as a result of your use of the Services:

a. You agree that Ouroboros shall not be responsible for unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data, any material or data sent or received or not sent or received, or any transactions entered into through the Services.

b. You agree that Ouroboros is not responsible or liable for any threatening, defamatory, obscene, offensive, or illegal content or conduct of any other party or any infringement of another's rights, including intellectual property rights. You specifically agree that Ouroboros is not responsible for any content sent using and/or included in the Services by any third party.

c. In no event shall Ouroboros and/or its suppliers be liable for any direct, indirect, punitive, incidental, special, consequential damages, or any damages whatsoever including, without limitation, damages for loss of use, data, or profits, arising out of or in any way connected with the use or performance of the Services, with the delay or inability to use the Services, the provision of or failure to provide any Services, or for any information, software, products, services, and related graphics obtained through the Services, or otherwise arising out of the use of the Services, whether based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, or otherwise, even if Ouroboros or any of its suppliers has been advised of the possibility of damages. Because some states/jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply in every instance. If you are dissatisfied with any portion of the Services, or with any of these terms, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using the Services and related websites.

d. You agree to indemnify and hold Ouroboros, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, and employees, harmless from any claim, demand, or damage, including reasonable attorneys' fees, asserted by any third party due to or arising out of your use of or conduct on the Services.

These Terms are based on English law. These Terms will be governed by the laws of the British Virgin Islands, without giving effect to any conflicts of law principles that may require the application of the laws of a different country. Any and all disputes arising out of or in connection with these Terms, including any question regarding its existence, validity or termination, shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration in English for the time being in force at the commencement of the arbitration. The place of arbitration shall be the British Virgin Islands before a tribunal of three arbitrators, one to be appointed by each of the parties and the third by the two so chosen, unless the parties have agreed to the appointment of a sole arbitrator. The parties agree that the seat of the arbitration shall remain in the British Virgin Islands. Notwithstanding this, you agree that Ouroboros shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction. If any provision of these Terms is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of these Terms shall not be affected or impaired thereby.

Ouroboros may modify these Terms. Ouroboros may update these Terms or the Privacy Policy from time to time. It is your responsibility to remain informed of any changes, because you are legally obligated to abide by the latest versions of these Terms and the Privacy Policy. You may not assign or transfer your rights under these Terms without obtaining Ouroboros's prior written consent, and any purported assignment or transfer in violation of this section will be null and void.

You are only granted a limited license to use the Software:

Subject to the terms and conditions of this Terms of Service agreement, Ouroboros hereby grants you a personal, limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to use the executable code version of the Software solely as installed on your personal computer. You may only use the Software as expressly authorized in these Terms of Service. You may not (and you may not permit anyone else) to copy, modify, create a derivative work of, reverse engineer, decompile or otherwise attempt to extract the source code of the Software or any part thereof, unless this is expressly permitted or required by law, or unless you have been specifically told that you may do so by Ouroboros, in writing. Unless Ouroboros has given you specific written permission to do so, you may not assign (or grant a sub-license of) your rights to use the Software, grant a security interest in or over your rights to use the Software, or otherwise transfer any part of your rights to use the Software.

You must respect our rights in the Software:

Unless expressly permitted by law, you may not copy, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, attempt to derive the source code of, modify, or create derivative works of the Software. You may not remove, obscure, or alter any copyright notice or other proprietary rights notices affixed to or contained within the Software. You may not separate the component programs of the Software for use on different computers or sublicense, lease, rent, loan, or distribute the Software to any third party. You may not permit, direct or authorize any third party to take any action with respect to the Software which is inconsistent with the terms set forth in this Terms of Service.

The Software contains our valuable intellectual property:

You acknowledge and agree that the Software, including its sequence, structure, organization, source code and applicable documentation, contains valuable trade secrets and other intellectual property of Ouroboros and its suppliers. The Software is licensed and not sold to you, and no title or ownership to such Software or the intellectual property rights embodied therein is granted to you. The Software is the exclusive property of Ouroboros and its suppliers, and all rights in and to the Software not expressly granted to you in this Agreement are reserved. Nothing in this Terms of Service will be deemed to grant, by implication, estoppel or otherwise, a license under any existing or future patents of Ouroboros, except to the extent necessary for you to use the Software as expressly permitted under this Terms of Service. You acknowledge and agree that any actual or threatened breach of this Terms of Service will constitute immediate, irreparable harm to Ouroboros for which monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy, and that injunctive relief is an appropriate remedy for any such breach or violation.

Security and Updates:

Ouroboros Browser will automatically check with us for updated versions. This ensures that you have access to the latest security fixes and upgrades. We count the number and type of these requests when we receive them to produce aggregate statistics. We do not detect or record any particular person’s information in the statistics we collect.

Data Collection:

Large digital corporations collect, store, analyze, use and sell data about you known as “Big Data”. This is a practice that many users of the internet dislike and are afraid of. Ouroboros Browser does not believe in the Big Data practice and will try to protect you from this. Ouroboros Browser will not collect, store or use any data about you. We may change your search to help reduce your digital footprint. After every browsing session, we may remove your cookies automatically. We do not use FLoC tracking. We may change your default search in the Ouroboros Browser and third-party browsers to protect you from the biggest Big Data proponent. We may update your current browser version to keep your search experience consistent with our ethos of reducing data tracking.

We do not ask you to sign-up an account with Ouroboros. If you have a Roku device, we will detect it and pull your device's advertising ID, which is also known as an Identifier for Advertisers (IFA). If you email our support team, we will have your email address. However, your email address will only be used for the purpose of responding to your inquiry. It will not be used for any other purpose.

Components from third parties may be delivered along with the Software:

The Software is delivered along with certain software components provided by third parties ("Third Party Software"). Ouroboros shall not be responsible for any such Third-Party Software. Third-Party Software, particularly open-source software, may be subject to separate license terms included with, or contained in the setup installation segments of such Third-Party Software. The terms set forth in this Terms of Service do not apply to Third-Party Software to the extent they are inconsistent with such Third-Party Software licenses. This Terms of Service governs your use of the Software in executable form.

Our Software and Services are ad-supported:

Ouroboros is a browser that removes cookies each time it gets restarted. The Software is free to download and our Services are provided free of charge. Ouroboros incurs substantial development, collocation and bandwidth expenses in doing this. To support our business and continue providing you with the Software and Services for free, we will display the advertisements of select partners to you. By using our Software and Services, you consent to the placement of such advertisements within the Software and Services. To save confusion, installing Ouroboros Browser will unpin other browsers so that there isn’t any brand confusion. If you want to add them back after installation, you may do so.

You may receive ads in the form of notifications and in-browser sponsored content. The categories of ads that you see and when you see them are inferred from your browsing activity. We will receive anonymized confirmations for ads that you have viewed, but no data that identifies you or that can be linked to you are stored.

In the cases where we collect high-level statistics relating to web activity, we use privacy mechanisms like local differential privacy that guarantee that no information about individual users will ever be revealed to us.

Location Tracking:

If you visit a website through the Ouroboros Browser and the website wants to determine your location, you will be asked whether you want it to be allowed to or not. If you click ‘Yes’ to this message, then the website will be sent an approximation of where you are based on your IP address. Your IP address will then be stored by the website you have visited.

Third parties:

Our browser and services include third-party technology or code, some of which may use your data in different ways. When such third-party technologies use previously collected data, they typically act as data processors for us. When they collect data on their own, they typically act as independent data controllers

Beta Testing Browser Versions:

Ouroboros Browser is in beta testing. This allows us to test new features so that we can find and fix errors before releasing our market ready version of Ouroboros Browser. The browser may automatically send crash reports to Ouroboros so that we can identify and fix problems.

Your privacy is important to us:

Ouroboros takes the protection and security of its users' information very seriously and will treat any and all such information in accordance with our privacy policy.

Your license to use the Software terminates if you breach this Terms of Service:

This Terms of Service will commence upon your download of the Software and continue in perpetuity unless terminated earlier as provided herein. This Terms of Service will immediately terminate upon your breach of any of the terms or conditions set forth herein. Upon the termination of the Terms of Service, you will discontinue all use of the Software.

The Software is provided without any warranties or guarantees:

THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED "AS IS", AND OUROBOROS DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES WITH REGARD TO THE SOFTWARE WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR USE, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, OR QUIET ENJOYMENT. OUROBOROS DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE USE OF THE SOFTWARE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE OR THAT THE SOFTWARE DOES NOT CONTAIN ANY VIRUSES. THIS WARRANTY DISCLAIMER IS A FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND OUROBOROS. OUROBOROS WOULD NOT PROVIDE THE SOFTWARE ABSENT SUCH DISCLAIMER.

Ouroboros is not liable for any damages you may incur:

IN NO EVENT SHALL OUROBOROS, ITS AFFILIATES, OR THEIR RESPECTIVE SUPPLIERS OR CUSTOMERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR INDIRECT DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DAMAGES FOR INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS, LOST DATA, LOST PROFITS, OR THE LIKE) REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY, OR OTHER THEORY, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL THE CUMULATIVE LIABILITY OF OUROBOROS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID TO OUROBOROS IN RESPECT OF THE SOFTWARE GIVING RISE TO THE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE FOREGOING EXCLUSION AND LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY WILL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS A FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND OUROBOROS. OUROBOROS WOULD NOT PROVIDE THE SOFTWARE TO YOU ABSENT SUCH LIMITATION.
