Legal & Privacy Policy

Last updated: 2021-11-19

Welcome to https://polywars.space, a website-hosted user interface (the "app") provided by the PolyWars team ("we", "us").
The app provides access to a decentralized protocol of smart contracts on the Polygon blockchain (the "protocol") that allows users to participate in the PolyWars game and trade certain digital in-game assets related to it.
The app is one, but not the exclusive, means of accessing the protocol.
