HashPack has created means for users to access and transfer ownership of virtual currency tokens (‘Cryptocurrency’), such as HBAR. By entering into this agreement You will receive a license to use any of the HashPack Applications. You should only use the HashPack Application if you are familiar with cryptocurrencies. We highly recommend learning the basics of HBAR and the Hedera network before running the application.

HashPack does not store Your private keys, backup phrases or passwords (“Private Information”) on it’s servers. It is very important that You backup and save your Private Information. We urge you to write down your backup phrase and store it offline in two different places. If You lose Your Private Information, it will not be possible for HashPack to recover it for You and You may lose access to Your Virtual Currencies.

If You do not understand the above paragraph then we strictly recommend that You learn more about Virtual Currencies before using the HashPack Application.

The only authentic record of Virtual Currency transactions is from Hedera mainnet nodes. HashPack provides functionality that allows You to send Virtual Currency transfer instructions. HashPack does not guarantee that Your transactions will be delivered, because Your transaction from HashPack Applications shall be added and stored on the Hedera network. There may be transaction fees associated with HBar transactions.
