    RISKS
6.1. The use of technology related to blockchain, smart contracts, and cryptocurrencies, among others, entails risks that by accessing transactions, you are assuming. Flashflow.org does not own or control any underlying software through which blockchain networks are formed. The software underlying blockchain networks are open-source so anyone can use, copy, modify, and distribute it. By using the Interface, you acknowledge and agree:
6.1.1. That Flashflow.org is not responsible for the operation of the open-source software and networks underlying the Interface;
6.1.2. That there exists no guarantee of the functionality, security, or availability of that software and networks; and
6.1.3. That the underlying networks are subject to sudden changes in operating rules, such as those commonly referred to as "forks," which may materially affect the Interface. You are responsible for securing your private key(s). We do not have access to your private key(s); losing control of your private key(s) will permanently and irreversibly deny you access to any blockchain-based network. Neither Flashflow.org nor any other person or entity will be able to retrieve or protect your digital assets. If your private key(s) are lost, you will not be able to transfer your digital assets to any blockchain address or wallet. If this occurs, you will not be able to realize any value or utility from the digital assets you may hold.
6.2. Flashflow.org is not responsible for the content of any third party, including, but not limited to, information, materials, products, or services that Flashflow.org does not own or control. In addition, third parties may offer promotions related to your access and use of the Interface. Flashflow.org does not endorse or assume any responsibility for such resources or promotions. Suppose you access any such resources or participate in any such promotions. In that case, you do so at your own risk and understand that these Terms do not apply to your dealings or relationships with any third parties. You expressly relieve Flashflow.org of all liability arising from using such resources or participating in such promotions.
6.3. You understand that the various blockchains utilized by Flashflow, including but not limited to Arbitrum, Avalanche, and others, are continually under development, which creates technological and security risks when using the Interface. This ongoing development also leads to uncertainties relating to digital assets and transactions therein. You acknowledge that the cost of transacting on these blockchains is variable and may increase at any time, causing an impact on any activities taking place on these blockchains. Such changes may result in price fluctuations or increased costs when using the Interface.
6.4. Transactions entered into in connection with the Interface are irreversible and final, and there are no refunds. You acknowledge and agree that you will access and use the Interface at your own risk.
6.5. We must comply with Applicable Law, which may require us to, upon request by government agencies, take certain actions or provide information that may not be in your best interests.
6.6. You hereby assume and agree that Flashflow.org will have no responsibility or liability for the risks in Section 9. You hereby irrevocably waive, release and discharge all claims, whether known or unknown to you, against Flashflow.org, its affiliates, and their respective shareholders, members, directors, officers, employees, agents, representatives, suppliers, and contractors related to any of the risks set forth in this Section 6.
