4.1.2 Withdraw fiat currency and/or digital assets from your Cryptal Account;

4.4 You should not assign your rights to use the Product, grant an interest in or over your rights to use the Product, or otherwise transfer any part of your rights under these Terms.
4.5 These Terms do not grant to you any license or permission to copy, distribute, modify or otherwise use any application programming interface, notwithstanding any provision to the contrary.
4.6 You will not, nor encourage or assist any third party to:
(a) use any unauthorized means to gain access to the Product or use any automated process or service (such as a bot, a spider, or periodic caching of information stored by Cryptal) to access or use the Product, or distribute instructions, software or tools for that purpose;

4.7 Certain crypto assets enable staking, a process that helps to maintain the protocol or the crypto asset itself. The Person who stakes crypto assets normally receives a reward for doing so (“Crypto Staking Reward”). Cryptal allows its users to stake certain crypto assets held in users' wallets on the site to be staked. The crypto assets that are staked may be amended, changed, or updated by Cryptal at any time and without prior notice to you. Cryptal may choose to cease staking activities at any time. Because staking can require crypto assets to be locked for a certain period of time, during this time the user cannot be allowed to withdraw or use staked crypto assets. By holding a crypto asset that is staked, you accept the risk that your withdrawal of crypto assets could be delayed. The duration of the potential delay is based on the characteristics of the applicable crypto asset. Since Cryptal uses 3rd party service provider for staking purposes, Crypto Staking Rewards collected by Cryptal will be used to cover the costs of staking, either incurred as a fee to a service provider or as a staking fee charged by Cryptal. The percentage of Crypto Staking Rewards distributed to you, and timing of such distribution will be determined by Cryptal in its sole discretion. Crypto Staking Rewards vary by crypto asset. You agree and understand that Cryptal does not guarantee that you will receive Crypto Staking Rewards. Any information regarding the potential amount of any Crypto Staking Rewards set out in the Site or otherwise is in estimate only. Cryptal makes no representations and warranties and makes no guarantees:
(i) that any stated percentage of Crypto Staking Rewards will be received,
(ii) that staking will occur on a continuous basis,
(iii) that staking will occur on an uninterrupted or error-free basis. Cryptal may refuse any user to stake crypto assets or stop the staking at any time in its sole discretion. By holding a crypto asset that is staked, or accepting any Crypto Staking Reward, you are expressly agreeing to the terms set out in this paragraph.
