EverestTM Network Limited Terms and Conditions of Use
EverestTM is a blockchain application platform for the secure storage and verification of identification information and personal data as well as the tracking and recording of transactions. Everest is dedicated to liberating humanity from subservience to centralized, non- user-friendly identity management and capital allocation organizations by creating a secure, decentralized identity management and value transfer system.
Everest is a user-centric, self-sovereign identity and value transfer solution based on blockchain technology and the cryptographic underpinnings of that system and reflects the principles of identity espoused in the sustainable development goals (“SDGs”) of the United Nations. Upon those foundations, Everest has architected the Identity Network with a focus on resilience, availability, security, privacy and control over personal data.
As you use Everest, we ask you to follow these Terms and Conditions to get the most out of our Services. Just below is a summary of our Terms of Service, followed by the full, legally-binding set of Terms. This summary is for your convenience only and points out certain important user rights and responsibilities. Since you are bound by the full Terms of Service whenever you use Everest, you are required to read, understand and agree to the full-length version. If you do not agree to any of these Terms, you may not use the Everest Applications, any Everest-enabled applications or any other services provided by Everest.
Our goal is to help you take back ownership and control of your identification and personal data, so that you can avail yourself of the opportunities associated with your identification and data.
The services provided though Everest are open only to people who are 13 years of age or older unless such people have provided Everest with the written consent of a parent or guardian who is either (a) enrolled in the Everest Identity Network, or (b) provides an alternative of written and verification acceptable to Everest. While we will provide the highest level of security that we can on our end, you are responsible for the confidentiality of all of the information that you provide through your account and for all of the activities that take place as a result of your use of your account.
We have a zero-tolerance policy for users who posts or send threatening content, content that violates any intellectual property rights, or the use of our services to harm or otherwise harass any person. We will delete any such content and reserve the right to restrict access and/or use for any reason, or no reason, in our discretion including, but not limited to, those who violates this policy.
We may communicate with you from time to time, usually through emails, text messages, or push notifications. Text messaging and data rates may apply for which you will be responsible. You may opt out of receiving messages from us at any time.
Both you and Everest have the right to stop your use of the Everest Applications or to delete your account at any time, but certain provisions of these Terms of Service will still apply even after termination of your account and Services. For example, any disputes between you and Everest even after your account is deleted will be governed by these Terms of Service.
We may change the Terms of Service from time to time, and those changes are up to us – but you always have the right to decide whether or not you want to continue using Everest. If you do continue, that means you do agree to our new Terms. And now, on with the show!

- Judicial forum for disputes. You and we agree that any judicial proceeding to resolve claims relating to these Terms or the Services will be brought in the federal or state courts of Delaware, subject to the mandatory arbitration provisions below. The parties consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in such courts. If you reside in a country (for example, European Union member states) with laws that give consumers the right to bring disputes in their local courts, this paragraph doesn’t affect those requirements.
- IF YOU’RE A U.S. RESIDENT, YOU ALSO AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISIONS:
- We Both Agree to Arbitrate. You and we agree to resolve any claims relating to these Terms or the Services through final and binding arbitration by a single arbitrator, except as set forth under Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate below. This includes disputes arising out of or relating to interpretation or application of this “Mandatory Arbitration Provisions” section, including its enforceability, revocability, or validity.
- Arbitration Procedures. The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, San Diego, CA, or any other location we agree to.
- Arbitration Fees and Incentives. The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. We will pay all arbitration fees for individual arbitration for claims less than $75,000. If you receive an arbitration award that is more favorable than any offer we make to resolve the claim, we will pay you $1,000 in addition to the award. Neither party will not seek its attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that a claim is frivolous.
- Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate. The parties may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in San Diego, CA. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Services, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above. If the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in San Diego, CA to resolve your claim.
- NO CLASS ACTIONS. You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren’t allowed.
