Automate your savings through Torque's novel liquidity hub supporting the most popular assets on Arbitrum.
Welcome to torque.fi & usd.farm, user interfaces (the “Interfaces”) maintained by Torque Inc. (“we,” “our,” or “us”). The Interfaces provide access to a set of smart contracts that enable the minting of Torque USD & connect global savers to economic opportunities.
BY CONNECTING YOUR WALLET, YOU ARE ENTERING INTO A BINDING AGREEMENT. YOU SHOULD ONLY ACCESS THE INTERFACES IF YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS IN ENTIRETY.
To the extent that there is a conflict between these Terms & any applicable additional terms, this Agreement will control unless expressly stated otherwise. If you do not agree or may not comply to these Terms, you may not use the Interfaces or otherwise engage with the Protocol.
We reserve the right to modify this Agreement. If we make modifications, we will notify you by updating the date at the top of the Agreement. Modifications are effective when posted & your continued use of the Interfaces will confirm your acceptance of those modifications. If you don't agree with modifications to this Agreement, you must immediately cease accessing.
To access or use the Interfaces, you must be able to form a legally binding contract with us. Accordingly, you represent that you are at least eighteen (18) years old & have the full right, power, & authority to enter into & comply with the terms & conditions of this Agreement on behalf of yourself & any company or legal entity for which you may access or use the Interface. You represent that you are not a citizen, resident, or member of any jurisdiction or group that is subject to economic sanctions by the United States or where your use of the Interfaces would be illegal or otherwise violate any applicable law. You further represent that your access & use of the Interface will fully comply with all applicable laws & regulations & that you will not access or use the Interfaces to conduct, promote, or otherwise facilitate any illegal activity.
The Interfaces are open source, but Torque Inc. owns intellectual property & other rights in its contents, including (but not limited to) text, images, trademarks, service marks, copyrights, patents, & designs. The Protocol is composed of open-source software running on Arbitrum.
The Protocol consists of free, public, open-source, or source-available software, including a set of smart contracts deployed on the Arbitrum Blockchain. Your use of the Protocol involves various risks, including complete loss of the digital assets you supply to the Protocol.
Although USD is designed to maintain low volatility, there remain unforeseeable ways in which the Protocol could fail causing USD to lose its peg or all of its value. In such an event, the Protocol’s governance token (“TORQ”) could experience a loss in value. Before using the Protocol or trading TORQ, review the Torque Litepapers to understand how Torque works.
TORQUE PROTOCOL IS PROVIDED "AS IS," AT YOUR OWN RISK, & WITHOUT WARRANTIES.
Although Torque Inc. developed the initial code, we do not provide, own, or control Torque Protocol. Instead, the Protocol is run by smart contracts deployed on the Arbitrum blockchain. Upgrades & modifications to the Protocol are community-managed by holders of TORQ. No developer, entity, or person involved in creating the Protocol will be liable for any claims or damages whatsoever associated with your use, inability to use, or interaction with other users of Torque Protocol—including any direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages, or loss of profits, digital assets, or anything else of value.

If a potential dispute arises, you must contact us by sending an email to hello at torque.fi so we can resolve it without resorting to formal a dispute. If we aren’t able to reach a resolution within one hundred & eighty (180) days, then you & we agree to resolve the dispute according to the process set forth below.
Any controversy arising out of or relating to the Interfaces, this Agreement, or any other acts or omissions for which you may contend that we are liable, including (but not limited to) any claim or controversy as to arbitrability (“Dispute”), shall be conducted in accordance with the expedited procedures set forth in the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures as those Rules exist on the effective date of this Agreement, including Rules 16.1 & 16.2 of those Rules. You understand that you are required to resolve all Disputes by binding arbitration.
The arbitration shall be held on a confidential basis before a single arbitrator, who shall be selected pursuant to JAMS rules. The arbitration situs will be San Francisco, California. Unless we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate your claims with those of any other party. Any judgment on the award may be entered in any court of competent Jurisdiction.
You must bring any & all Disputes against us in your individual capacity & not as a plaintiff in or member of any purported class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or any other representative proceeding. This provision applies to class arbitration. In addition, you & we both agree to waive the right to demand a trial by jury.
You agree the laws of the State of California, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, govern this Agreement & any Dispute between you & us. You further agree that the Interface shall be deemed to be based solely in the State of California, & that although the Interface may be available in other jurisdictions, its availability does not give rise to general or specific personal jurisdiction in any forum outside the State of California. Any arbitration conducted pursuant to this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. You agree that the state & federal courts of Orange County, California, are the forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for court proceedings in the event that this Agreement’s binding arbitration clause is found to be unenforceable.
The failure of any entity to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Agreement is found by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the arbitrator or court should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, & the other provisions of the Agreement remain in full effect.
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to the use of the Interfaces must be filed within three (3) months.
