IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, PLEASE DO NOT ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICE.
The Service is not allowed for use by individuals who are under the age of eighteen (18) years old or who are not of the age of majority in the place where they are located or domiciled.
The Service consists of 0Chain performing the following for you: (i) collecting and storing Data; and (ii) communicating Data to, from and between you, 0Chain and Integrated Platforms. 0chain does not take possession or control of your Crypto.
When you make selections or adjust preferences made available to you in the Account, such selections shall form part of these Terms.
The Services may include an Account that will be used to identify some of your preferences and serve as a record of some of your activity within the Services. When you sign up for an Account, 0Chain will use the information you provide to determine whether you are eligible for an Account as well as other purposes described in these Terms. 0Chain may decline to grant you an Account (or, alternatively, suspend any existing Account without liability to you) for any reason or for no reason. Once 0Chain decides that you are eligible for an Account, it may create your Account when you have completed all of the following steps: (i) provide your email address to us; (ii) confirm your email address through an exchange of emails; (iii) provide your mobile phone number; (iv) verify your mobile phone by SMS exchange or OTP; (v) accept these Terms; and (vi) provide such other information as we may request. Once we create your Account, it might be accessible to you through the Service. Your Account is different from Your Wallet. At the discretion of 0Chain, you may be able to create unique ID and password credentials that you will use to access your Account. You agree to keep any such Account ID and password confidential, and not share them with anyone else. You agree not to let anyone else use your Account or the Services in your name. You agree that you are solely responsible for any activities that take place via your Account or use of the Services using your identification, even if you were not aware of them.
The Service is not available for any user whatsoever. The following persons or entities are prohibited from using the Service (each, a “Prohibited User”): (i) persons or entities who appear on (A) UNITED NATIONS SANCTIONS (UN); (B) AUSTRALIAN SANCTIONS; (C) BUREAU OF INDUSTRY AND SECURITY (US); (D) EU FINANCIAL SANCTIONS; (E) OFFICE OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS (CANADA); (F) US DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY OFFICE OF FOREIGN ASSET CONTROL (OFAC) – SPECIALLY DESIGNATED NATIONALS (SDN); (G) UK FINANCIAL SANCTIONS (HMT); (H) US CONSOLIDATED SANCTIONS; (I) DEPARTMENT OF STATE, AECA DEBARRED LIST (US); (J) DEPARTMENT OF STATE, NONPROLIFERATION SANCTIONS (US); (ii) persons or entities or who are nationals or residents of Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, or Syria; (iii) persons or entities who are less than 18 years of age or not of the age of majority in Your Jurisdiction; (iv) persons or entities located in or domiciled in a jurisdiction where use of the Service or Transactions is illegal or requires a license or registration that such person or entity does not hold; and (v) Persons, or their Affiliates who have been subject to termination by 0Chain.
If you are not yet both eighteen (18) years old and of the age of majority in Your Jurisdiction, you may not use the Service. We reserve the right to require you at any stage to provide proof of age so that 0Chain can verify that you are not a Prohibited User. Prohibited Users shall be blocked from using the Service.
The Service is not permitted for any use whatsoever. You shall not use the Service for any Prohibited Use (as defined in the glossary below).
The Service does not support any Transaction with any Exchange or other Integrated Platform whatsoever. You shall use the Service only in furtherance of Transactions involving only Crypto that has been indicated as compatible by the Integrated Platform, Exchange and 0Chain, as applicable (all other, crypto currencies or tokens that are not so indicated, “Prohibited Crypto”).
If you are resident, domiciled or located in the State of Texas, all stablecoin, meaning Crypto that is backed by sovereign currency, precious metals, or other cryptocurrency, is Prohibited Crypto, unless the relevant Exchange or Integrated Platform selling to you is licensed as a money transmitter by the Texas Department of Banking.Some digital tokens are illegal securities. You shall not use the Service in respect of any trade in any shares, equity or other security, whether legal or not. If you are not sure whether a given asset is a security, please obtain legal advice in Your Jurisdiction, and consult the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) publications on ICOs (www.sec.gov/ICO) and related topics. The fact of the Services being compatible with a given Crypto shall not be construed as an opinion as the securities status of the Crypto or any other legal or factual aspect of the Crypto.
0Chain reserves the right to modify the Service, suspend or terminate it without prior notice to or consent from you. You agree that Data or other content available through the Service may be changed or removed at any time without any notice to you. 0Chain shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, error, malfunction or discontinuance of the Service.
For a Transaction consisting of your purchase or sale of Crypto from or to an Exchange, the Service may display to you the price at which an Exchange is offering to sell or buy Crypto. That price is Data from the Exchange simply communicated to you by the Service, with no representation as to its accuracy. You may then be able to use the Service to inform the Exchange of the amount of Crypto you wish to purchase or sell, supply your payment information and other Data necessary for the prevention of the financing of terrorism, money laundering, fraud and security breaches. 0Chain will use commercially reasonable efforts to deliver such Data to the Exchange and its replies to you with respect to the Transaction. 0Chain reserves the right to suspend the Services in respect of any or all Transactions at its sole and absolute discretion for any reason or for no reason. Each Exchange has the right to also suspend or decline any Transaction at their discretion and pursuant to their Exchange Terms. Crypto Transactions, if any, occur pursuant to Exchange Terms and not these Terms.
0Chain is not a party to Exchange Terms or other Integrated Platform Terms and has no liability to you or any third party under any of them. 0Chain does not itself purchase or sell any Crypto. 0Chain does not take possession or control of Transaction Crypto or Fiat. All Transactions, if any, take place between you and an Exchange; 0Chain is not a party to them. If you have used 0Chain to provide or receive payment Data (e.g. a payment card or bank account information) so that the Exchange can take a payment from you or make a payment to you and such payment succeeds or fails, you do not receive the corresponding Crypto that you have agreed to purchase under the Transaction or do not receive the corresponding Fiat you have agreed to accept in exchange for the sale of Crypto under the Transaction, 0Chain shall have no liability to you for such outcomes and you shall look to only the Exchange for recovery. If you are entitled to a refund from an Exchange or other Integrated Platform for a given Transaction or otherwise, you shall look only to that third party for such refund and not to 0Chain. If your payment method for Crypto does not work or is declined by Exchange or other Integrated Platform, 0Chain is not liable for such failures and shall have no duty to extend credit to you or cause any third party to complete any Transaction. 0Chain does not endorse any third party product or service even if such third party is an Integrated Platform. Exchanges may decline to make or receive payment by any method.
Exchanges and other Integrated Platforms are mostly government-licensed, registered and regulated entities that have a legal obligation to review Transactions to prevent the financing of terrorism, money laundering, crime and other illegal or risky activity. During and following the term of these Terms, you shall provide such Data as 0Chain or any Integrated Platform shall require to perform a thorough review of you and each Transaction. Any failure by you to provide such information constitutes a material breach of these Terms.
0Chain does not charge you fees for processing your transaction. Any fees charged by 0Chain are in consideration for additional related services necessary for completing the transaction in a compliant manner. The amount of fees charged by 0Chain may differ depending on the referring site/application. Exchanges and other Integrated Platforms also charge fees under their respective terms; please read them carefully before carrying out any Transaction. Amounts that you pay to an Exchange or other third party may be subject to foreign exchange conversion costs for which 0Chain is not liable. Your payment card issuer or other payments provider may charge fees for your use of the relevant payment instrument when processing a Transaction with an Exchange; 0Chain is not liable for any such fees or other banking fees you may incur.
Once a payment is approved and cryptocurrency has been sent to your wallet address, it cannot be canceled or refunded.
You acknowledge and accept that there are inherent risks associated with Crypto and that such risks extend to Transactions. These risks include but are not limited to the failure of hardware, software or internet connections, the risk of malicious software introduction and the risk of unauthorized access to Account (if any) or Your Wallet. It is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with the risks involved with Crypto, their protocols and networks. Use of the Service does not remove these risks. 0Chain is not responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays when using the Services, however they may be caused. Transactions are contingent on the relevant Crypto network remaining operational which may be a function of Crypto miners, none of which are controlled by 0Chain and for which 0Chain has no liability. You acknowledge and agree that the value of Crypto can change rapidly and without warning, increase or decrease unexpectedly and may even fall to zero. Transactions will take time to be confirmed and may in some cases not be completed. If you attempt to send or receive Crypto that are not supported by Your Wallet or Integrated Platform they may be lost entirely and not be recoverable. In no event will 0Chain be liable to you or to any third party for any of the foregoing. If the Services post a dollar value in association with a given Crypto, such posting does not constitute a representation or guarantee as to the actual or projected value of such assets. Instead, it is third party Integrated Platform information published to Service for your general information only, and you should not rely on it for any financial decision. It is your responsibility to independently ascertain the value of your Crypto, without relying on the Services. You understand and accept that there are also inherent risks associated with using any Crypto. Crypto is not Fiat money and it is not insured by the FDIC or any other insurer. Most Crypto Transactions are irreversible and if you lose the private keys to Your Wallet, all your Crypto may be taken and may not be retrievable. These risks include but are not limited to unanticipated changes to the network protocol and unknown vulnerabilities which may include or result in underlying technology attacks. Other possible changes that could render Your Wallet inaccessible may include forks or rollbacks of Crypto, networks, or blockchains. 0Chain has no control over any Crypto and will not be responsible for any loss you suffer when you transact via any Crypto.
0Chain has no duty to monitor the Services for fraud or other suspicious activity. However, if 0Chain determines that any instance of the Service exposes you, 0Chain or any third party to any legal, financial, security or reputational risk, 0Chain reserves the right to suspend the Service in respect of the Transactions, persons or entities involved and 0Chain shall have no liability you or any third party for such action.
You represent and warrant to 0Chain that:
