Should you agree to create an Account through our Service, we will generate a cryptographic private and public key pair that are provided solely to you and completely owned by you.

The Private Key uniquely matches the Account name and must be used in connection with the Account to authorize the transfer of uDOO from that Account.

Failure to do so may result in the loss of control of any balances held within your Account.
