Terms of Use Agreement for features and products within the expansive Guacamole ecosystem.

Updated on June 3rd, 2024

Do not access this Site if it's prohibited by law in your area. Please read these terms of use carefully before using the Site. By accessing the Site, you agree to be bound by these Terms.

The Terms include a mandatory individual arbitration and class action/jury trial waiver. This means disputes must be resolved through arbitration on an individual basis, not through jury trials or class actions. If you do not agree to these Terms, do not use the Site. By using the Site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agree to these Terms.

If you do not agree with these Terms and the Privacy Policy, you are not allowed to continue using the Guacamole platforms and we ask you to please refrain from doing so.


This Terms of Use Agreement ("Terms" or "Agreement") applies to the https://guacamole.gg & https://guac.gg website and mobile user interfaces (collectively, the “Site”) provided by Guacamole ("we," "our," or "us"), sometimes in conjunction with others. Through the Site, we offer access to the decentralized peer-to-peer finance application along with other tooling ("GuacSwap" & "Guac Shop" & others) managed and operated by holders of the GUAC governance token (the “Community”). The GuacSwap protocol is an automated market maker composed of smart contracts deployed on the Solana blockchain and related software development kits (collectively, the “Smart Contracts”) for traders or liquidity providers of SPL tokens and other digital assets (collectively, “Digital Assets”) to transact peer-to-peer. In addition to our sites, you can access the GuacSwap protocol through various third-party web or mobile interfaces that we do not own, administer, or control (“UIs”).

These Terms apply to you (“you” or “your”) as a user of our sites, including all products, services, tools, and information available on the Site. Our Privacy Policy and Cookies Policy also apply to your access and use of the Site.

To use the Site, you must be able to form a legally binding contract online, either as an individual or on behalf of a legal entity. If you are agreeing to these Terms on behalf of a legal entity, you represent that you have the legal authority to bind that entity to these Terms, are not listed on any sanctions list, and are at least 18 years old or the age of majority where you reside (whichever is older). You must have the full right, power, and authority to enter into and comply with the obligations under these Terms.

We advise you to periodically review these Terms to understand any changes. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to modify these Terms. If we make changes, we will notify you by updating the “Last Updated” date at the beginning of these Terms. Changes are binding on users of our sites and take effect immediately upon posting. By continuing to use our sites, you agree to be bound by any modifications to these Terms and acknowledge that we have provided you with sufficient notice of such changes.

We may suspend or disable your access to the Site for any reason, including any intentional or unintentional breaches of these Terms. We may remove or amend the content of the Site at any time. Some of the content may be out of date at any given time, and we are under no obligation to update or revise it. We do not promise or guarantee that the Site, or any content on it, will be free from errors or omissions.

We will not be liable to you for any issue, loss, or damage you may have suffered as a result of the Site being unavailable at any time for any reason. You will comply with all applicable domestic and international laws, statutes, ordinances, rules, and regulations applicable to your use of the Site (“Applicable Laws”).

  • Only use the services and the site for lawful purposes and in adherence with these Terms

  • Ensure that all information that you provide on the sites is current, complete, and accurate

  • Maintain the security, privacy, and confidentiality of access to your Digital Asset wallet address

As a condition for accessing or using the Site or the Services, you will not:

  • Violate any Applicable Law, including relevant and applicable anti-money laundering, anti-terrorist financing, sanctions laws, privacy, secrecy, and data protection laws.

  • Use the Site for any unlawful purpose or conduct.

You acknowledge that using the Sites and the Guacamole Platform comes with certain risks, including but not limited to:

  • Price Fluctuations: Losses may occur while digital assets are supplied to the Guacamole Platform, and due to fluctuations in token prices within trading pairs or liquidity pools. Digital currencies, tokens, and other digital assets can fluctuate significantly in value, sometimes surging or dropping suddenly. The price of tokens could even drop to zero. Market fluctuations can be caused by various factors, including proposed legislative acts, governmental restrictions, cybercrime news, market enthusiasm, loss of confidence, or market manipulation.

  • Third-Party UI Risks: When accessing the Guacamole Platform through third-party UIs, you are responsible for understanding and accepting the associated risks and any fees these interfaces may charge.

  • Smart Contract Risks: There are risks associated with any Smart Contracts you interact with.

  • Access Risks: Although we do not have access to your assets, third-party Digital Asset wallet services may suspend or terminate your access to your Digital Assets, or there may be delays, which could lead to a decrease in value or an inability to complete a Smart Contract.

  • Inherent Risks of Digital Assets and DeFi: Digital assets and decentralized finance come with inherent risks. Tokens are not legal tender and are not backed by any government. Unlike fiat currencies regulated by local governments and central banks, tokens rely on technology and user consensus. In cases of market manipulation or panic, governments will not intervene to stabilize or protect token values. Transactions might be difficult or impossible to settle and could only be completed at significantly adverse prices. Blockchain transactions are often irreversible, and losses due to fraud or accidents are not recoverable.

  • Regulatory Risks: The regulatory landscape for blockchain transactions and tokens is evolving. Your transactions or funds may be subject to reporting, tax, or other obligations. Legislative and regulatory changes could materially affect the use, transfer, exchange, and value of your tokens. Some jurisdictions may consider groups of users as general partnerships or other associations, increasing your liability risks for events beyond your control.

  • Service Disruptions: The Sites and/or the Guacamole Platform may be partially or fully suspended or terminated for any reason, limiting your access to your Digital Assets.

  • Legal Compliance: You are responsible for understanding and complying with all Applicable Laws, including those related to taxes and reporting obligations.

This list of risk factors is non-exhaustive. Other risks, either current or future, may also be relevant to your decision to accept these Terms and use the Site.

Accordingly, you expressly acknowledge and agree that:

a. Assumption of Risk: You assume all risks associated with the specific risks identified above.

b. Use of Sites and Platform: You assume all risks in connection with your access to and use of the Sites, the Guacamole Platform, and the Smart Contracts.

c. Waiver of Liability: You expressly waive and release us, the Guacamole Platform, and the Community from any and all liability, claims, causes of action, responsibility, or damages arising from or related to your use of the Sites, the Guacamole Platform, or the Smart Contracts.

d. Community-Driven Upgrades: Upgrades and modifications to the Guacamole Platform are managed in a community-driven way by holders of the Guacamole governance token and pushed to production by core contributors.

e. Limitation of Liability: No individual or entity involved in creating the Guacamole Platform will be liable for any claims or damages associated with your use, inability to use, or interaction with other users of the Guacamole Platform. This includes any direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, punitive, or consequential damages, or loss of profits, Digital Assets, cryptocurrencies, tokens, or anything else of value.

This limitation of liability applies regardless of whether the alleged liability is based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, or any other basis, and even if we have been advised of the possibility of such liability. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of certain liabilities, but your acceptance of these Terms constitutes an agreement to limit the liability of Guacamole, its affiliates, and their respective officers, directors, employees, contractors, and agents to the maximum extent possible under any applicable laws.


We do not guarantee that the Site will be secure or free from bugs or viruses.

Specifically, the content and materials available on the Site do not constitute any form of advice, referral, or recommendation by us and should not be regarded as an offer, solicitation, invitation, or recommendation to buy or sell tokens or any other financial services. They are not intended to be relied upon by you in making any specific decision to buy or sell a token.

We may perform any of our obligations and exercise any of the rights granted to us under these Terms through an affiliated or unaffiliated third party. We may assign any or all of our rights and obligations under these Terms to any third party.

If any clause or part of any clause of these Terms is found to be void, unenforceable, or invalid, it will be severed from these Terms, leaving the remainder in full force and effect, provided that the severance has not altered the basic nature of these Terms.

No single or partial exercise, failure, or delay in exercising any right, power, or remedy by us shall constitute a waiver by us of, or impair or preclude any further exercise of, that or any right, power, or remedy arising under these Terms or otherwise. If any of the provisions in these Terms are found to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, the remainder shall continue in full force and effect.

Under no circumstances shall we be liable for any lost profits or other trading losses.
