Welcome to Ledger Extension.
Ledger Extension is operated by LEDGER SAS, a French société par actions simplifiée (simplified joint-stock company) with share capital of €1,463,294, whose registered office is located at 1 rue du Mail, 75002 Paris, registered in the Paris Trade and Companies Register under SIREN number 529 991 119 (intra-Community VAT number: FR03529991119) (“we”, “us”, or “Ledger”).
Ledger Extension allows you to connect your Ledger Device to Web3 applications and NFT platforms from your browser. The Ledger Extension technology was designed to:
Facilitate your interactions with Web3 applications and NFT platforms, using your Ledger Device;
Allow you to preview the details of your transaction before signing it, thanks to our transactions summary feature;
help prevent scams by analyzing the smart contracts that you interact with and alert you of the detection of any suspicious smart contracts.
Before using Ledger Extension, you represent to us that you are:
lawfully able to enter into contracts or binding agreements and that, if you are entering into these Terms on behalf of an entity, that you have legal authority to bind such entity;
NOT on, or subject to, any trade or economic sanctions lists, such as (but not limited to) the UN Security Council Sanctions list, designated as a “Specially Designated National” by OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Treasury Department) or placed on the U.S. Commerce Department’s “Denied Persons List”, or any list maintained by the European Union or its Member States, or other applicable government authority;
NOT located or a resident in any country under sanctions or subject to laws or regulations under which it is illegal.
Ledger Extension supports certain browsers and is compatible with certain Ledger hardware wallets (“Ledger Device(s)”) and software which list is available here. The list of compatible Ledger Devices and software will change from time to time and will be updated to inform you of any changes. You understand and agree that regular software updates may be required to use Ledger Extension.
Web3 Checks. The Ledger Extension technology was designed to help prevent scams thanks to its “Web3 Checks” feature. This feature allows the review of, and provides you with, certain information and data regarding the smart contract and/or site that you choose to interact with using Ledger Extension. As an example, the Ledger Extension technology will cross reference the available data and information from a smart contract with a community database of known phishing and scams sites and will alert its users on certain information that may trigger the indication of scams such as: first time interactions, recent smart contracts, type of address you interact with, interactions that involve transfer of all your assets, etc. To learn more about Web3 Checks, we recommend that you read here. Ledger does not warrant or represent that your interactions with any Web3 applications, NFT platforms or any smart contract are free from any and/or all scams or phishing attacks. You acknowledge and agree that you engage with Web3 apps and platforms at your sole risk and responsibility, even when using Ledger Extension.
Connecting your wallet. DO NOT TRUST, VERIFY. You can access and use Ledger Extension by connecting your Ledger Device. Software integrity, especially when connected to the Internet, is very hard to verify. Ledger’s security model relies on a trusted display. As your hardware wallet is offline, this allows you to verify the smart contract information and related transaction data displayed on your screen without being subject to internet hackers. To learn more about “clear signing”, please read here. You are solely responsible for verifying that the information displayed on your Ledger Device screen is accurate and consistent with your intention before signing a transaction. Be aware that certain Web3 applications and platforms do not enable clear signing, even when using Ledger Extension. You acknowledge and agree that you engage with Web3 apps and platforms at your sole risk and responsibility, even when using Ledger Extension.
Keeping your wallet credentials safe. Ledger does not have access to or store passwords, recovery phrases, seed phrases, private keys, passphrases, transaction history, PIN, or other credentials associated with your wallet. We are not in a position to help you retrieve your credentials. You are solely responsible for remembering, storing, and keeping your credentials in a safe and secure location, away from prying eyes. Any third party with knowledge of one or more of your recovery phrase or PIN can gain control of your private keys and therefore steal your digital assets (including your NFTs) without any possibility for you or Ledger to retrieve them. To learn more about how to use and secure your recovery phrase, we recommend that you visit ledger.com and in particular this page, or the “Learn” section in Ledger Live and our support Website here.
5. Assumption of Risks
Inherent risks with Blockchains. Transactions that you engage in using Ledger Extension are confirmed and recorded on blockchain networks. Such networks are decentralized peer-to-peer networks run by independent third parties, which Ledger does not own, control or operate. We have no control over blockchain networks and, therefore, cannot and do not ensure that your transactions will be confirmed and processed. You acknowledge that Ledger does not store, send, or receive any assets on your behalf and you agree that the transactions you configure using Ledger Extension may fail, or may be substantially delayed by the underlying blockchain networks. Blockchain protocols are subject to change: upgrades to a blockchain, a hard fork or other change to the blockchain, a failure or cessation of the blockchain or its underlying cryptocurrency, or a change in how transactions are confirmed on the blockchain may have unintended, adverse effects on all blockchains using those or similar technologies, including any NFTs. Such changes may have consequences on their key characteristics including but not limited to their availability, name, security, market value or the way they operate. Ledger shall have no liability to you or to any third party for any claims or damages that may arise as a result of any payments or transactions that you engage in using Ledger Extension.
Financial risks. Digital tokens present high market volatility risk. Variations in the price of digital tokens may adversely affect the value of any digital assets you own, including NFTs, and there is no guarantee that your assets will have or retain any value. You accept and acknowledge that Ledger is not responsible for the risks involved with engaging in any transactions with any Web3 application, NFT marketplace or any third parties, using Ledger Extension.
Tax. Transactions involving digital tokens may be considered tax events according to applicable laws and regulations under which you are subject to taxation. It is your sole responsibility to comply with such applicable laws and regulations.
Regulatory risks. Regulations governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies and tokens are uncertain and subject to change all over the world. You accept and acknowledge that Ledger bears no responsibility in relation to changes to the regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, and tokens in any jurisdictions, or any policy affecting the use and value of your assets.
Learn more about digital assets and the risks involved. Before using Ledger Extension, we recommend that you understand and learn about digital assets and the risks involved. There may be additional risks that we have not foreseen or identified in these Terms. Before using Ledger Extension, you are strongly encouraged to carefully assess whether your financial situation and risk tolerance is compatible with such use. For the avoidance of doubt, you hereby agree that Ledger shall have no liability for any loss that incurs as a consequence of the risks highlighted in this section and/or your failure to follow the recommendations herein.
