CME Digital Asset Trading Platform End User License Agreement ("EULA")

This End-User Licence Agreement (the “EULA”) is a legal agreement between the Participant (which, for the purposes of this EULA, shall be referred to as "You" and “Your”) and CME Digital, governing Your use of the Platform and the related software, technologies and services, including but not limited to the electronic user interface CME Digital makes available to You to conduct Transactions and associated media and documentation, including any updates, patches and new releases made available in respect of any of the foregoing (collectively, the “Software”). By clicking the "I Accept" button, downloading, installing, accessing or utilising the Software or any part of it, You agree to be bound by the terms of this EULA.

Terms defined in the CME Digital Asset Trading Platform Rulebook are used herein as so defined, unless stated otherwise.

Your access to and use of the Software is at all times subject to, and conditional upon there being in full force and effect, a fully-executed, enforceable Participant Agreement between You and CME Digital.

1. Licence

a) You acknowledge and agree that the Software is protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws. You further acknowledge and agree that all right, title and interest in the Software and each part of it are the sole property of CME Digital and its licensors and that You receive no rights, title or interests in the Software except as expressly set forth in this EULA. You agree not to challenge CME Digital's or its licensors’ rights in or otherwise attempt to assert any rights in the Software, except those provided under this EULA.

b) Subject to, and conditional upon Your compliance with, the terms set forth in this EULA, the Participant Agreement and the Rules, CME Digital hereby grants to You and You fully accept, upon delivery, a limited, non-exclusive, revocable, non-transferable, non-sub-licensable right and licence to use only the executable version of the Software solely to the extent required for You to use the Platform in accordance with its normal and intended functionality and the related services provided by CME Digital, including the execution of any Transactions.

c) By submitting or authorising others to submit any data to the Platform, You acknowledge and agree that CME Digital shall own and be unconditionally vested with all intellectual property rights in any such data. You will promptly execute, and will use reasonable endeavours to procure that any third parties promptly execute, such documents and do such acts as CME Digital may reasonably consider necessary to vest all such intellectual property rights in CME Digital or its nominee.

You shall be responsible for obtaining and paying for internet connections and other third-party hardware, software and services necessary to access the Platform.

3. Infringement claims

In the event that CME Digital or, where applicable, any of its licensors reasonably determines that the Software, or any part of the Software is likely to be the subject of a claim of infringement, violation, or misappropriation of third party rights, CME Digital shall have the right (but not the obligation), at its own expense and option, to: (i) replace the infringing components of the Software with other reasonably acceptable components of the same or similar functionality; or (ii) suitably and reasonably modify the Software so that they are non-infringing. If none of the foregoing options are available to CME Digital or its licensors on commercially reasonable terms, You accept that CME Digital may revoke the licences and rights granted under this EULA without further liability to You.

4. Disclaimer

Except as expressly set forth in the Rules, the Software is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. Neither CME Digital nor any of its Affiliates and licensors make any warranties in connection with this EULA and hereby disclaim any and all implied or statutory warranties, including all implied warranties of merchantability, non-infringement, fitness for a particular purpose, error-free or uninterrupted operation and any warranties arising from a course of dealing, course of performance or usage of trade. To the extent that CME Digital may not, as a matter of Applicable Law, disclaim any warranty, the scope and duration of such warranty shall be the minimum permitted under such law.

The Software and Platform may be subject to limitations, delays, and other problems inherent in the use of the internet and electronic communications. CME Digital is not responsible for any delays, delivery failures, or other damage resulting from such problems.

7. Termination

a) Your right to use the Software continues until this EULA is terminated. You may terminate this EULA at any time by written notice to CME Digital. This EULA will automatically terminate without notice upon the termination of Your Participant Agreement.

b) You understand and agree that CME Digital may at any time, and without additional notice to You, terminate this EULA or modify, suspend, discontinue, or block access to some or all of the features of Software if: (i) CME Digital determines that You have materially breached this EULA and/or the Rules (without limiting the generality of the foregoing any unauthorised use of the Software by You will be deemed a material and irremediable breach of this EULA); (ii) CME Digital determines that You are not or may not be in compliance with any Applicable Law; (iii) CME Digital or its Affiliates are ordered by any regulator, law enforcement or other government agency to suspend or terminate Your access to or use of the Software; or (iii) CME Digital determines that such action is necessary to protect or maintain the Software, to prevent fraud or misrepresentation by affirmative acts or omissions, or to protect CME Digital, its Affiliates or licensors.

c) Upon any termination, You agree to cease all access to and use of the Software, remove all Software from Your computers, destroy all copies of the Software, and, upon request from CME Digital, certify in writing Your compliance with such requirements.

8. Severability

If any of the terms, or portions thereof, of this EULA are invalid or unenforceable under any Applicable Law, the court shall reform the contract to include an enforceable term as close to the intent of the original term as possible; all other terms shall remain unchanged.

9. Updates to this EULA

CME Digital may need to change the terms and conditions of this EULA from time to time, for example, to reflect changes in Applicable Law or best practice or to deal with additional features which CME Digital introduces. CME Digital will provide You with an updated EULA and give You at least 30 days’ notice before any changes come into effect. If You do not accept the notified changes, You will not be permitted to continue to use the Software and You will be entitled to terminate this EULA at any time during such 30-day period upon written notice, failing which, such changes shall be deemed accepted by You and shall have full force and effect upon expiry of the 30-day period.

This EULA, together with the Participation Agreement and the Rules, constitute the entire agreement between You and CME Digital relating to the subject matter hereof.

11. No Waiver

The waiver or failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for in this EULA shall not be deemed a waiver of any further or future right under this EULA.

You acknowledge that CME Digital may be irreparably harmed by any breach of this EULA, and You agree that CME Digital may seek, in any court of appropriate jurisdiction, an injunction and/or any other equitable relief necessary to prevent or cure any such actual or threatened breach thereof, without the necessity of proving monetary damages or posting a bond or other security.
