Virtual Currency Wallet Services. Creditz Based Group Limited is a licensed virtual currency wallet service provider that enables you to store, track, transfer, and manage your balances of certain supported virtual currencies (collectively, “Virtual Currency Transactions”). We will process Virtual Currency Transactions in accordance with the instructions we receive from you. Prior to submitting instructions to us, you should verify all transaction information. We do not guarantee the identity of any recipient, user, requestee or other party. You cannot reverse a Virtual Currency Transaction once it has been broadcast to the relevant Virtual Currency network. If a Virtual Currency Transaction has not yet been confirmed on the Virtual Currency network, Virtual Currency associated with such transaction will be designated as pending and will not be included in your Virtual Currency wallet balance or be available to conduct Virtual Currency Transactions. You cannot reverse or change any Virtual Currency Transaction marked as complete or pending.
You must comply with all applicable laws, regulations, licensing requirements and third party rights (including, without limitation, data privacy laws) in your use of the Services.
We may refuse to process or cancel any pending Virtual Currency Transaction as required by law or any court or other authority to which we are subject in any jurisdiction. We further reserve the right to delay any Virtual Currency Transaction if we perceive a risk of fraud or illegal activity. We also have the right to refuse to process or cancel any Virtual Currency Transaction due to technological issues with the blockchain software, our own software, or for other technological reasons.
Our Services are available only in connection with those virtual currencies that we support which may change from time to time. A full list of the virtual currencies we currently support can be found on the Website at Supported Coins. You will not use your Account or your virtual currency wallet to store, send, request, or receive virtual currencies in any form that we do not support (we will use reasonable efforts to help you move or sell virtual currency that we no longer support). We assume no responsibility or liability in connection with any attempt to use your Account or virtual currency wallet for virtual currencies that we do not support.
You acknowledge that: (i) BOCT is not a bank or brokerage and the Services provided are facilitation services rather than banking services; and (ii) BOCT is not acting as a trustee, fiduciary or escrow with respect to your virtual currency or funds, but is acting only as a Service provider.
You agree that you will not receive interest or other earnings in your Account or virtual currency wallet from the use of our Services except through your own Virtual Currency Transactions and BOCT has no responsibility or liability to you for Virtual Currency Transactions conducted by you or conducted by us in accordance with your instructions. You are prohibited from using our Services for any illegal or fraudulent purposes or for the purpose of consummating transactions for any other parties.
By initiating Virtual Currency Transactions or by sending and receiving virtual currency, you appoint Creditz Based Group Limited as your nominee custodian to manage your Account where it is appropriate in the sole opinion of Creditz Based Group Limited or by your instruction. Should we suffer any damage, expense, liability, cost or loss from your use of our Services, you shall indemnify and reimburse us in full for such damage, expense, liability, cost or loss within five days of receiving an invoice from us (the “Payment Deadline”). If you fail to pay by the Payment Deadline or payment is not sufficient to reimburse us for such damage, expense, liability, cost or loss, we reserve the right to debit your Account accordingly and/or to withhold amounts from virtual currency or funds you have requested to transfer.
Internet Provider. BOCT acts as a Service provider by creating, hosting, maintaining and providing our Services to you via the Internet. We cannot ensure that a buyer or a seller you are dealing with will actually complete the Virtual Currency Transaction and all risk of a Virtual Currency Transaction remains with you. We do not guarantee continuous, uninterrupted or secure access to our Services or the BOCT Site and we make no representations or warranties regarding the amount of time needed to complete Virtual Currency Transaction processing which is dependent upon many factors outside of our control. Access to Services may become degraded or unavailable during times of significant volatility or volume.
Underlying Protocols. We do not own, control, operate or maintain the underlying software protocols which govern the operation of the virtual currencies supported by us. In general, the underlying protocols are open source software and anyone can use, copy, modify, and distribute them. By using our Services, you acknowledge and agree (i) that we are not responsible for the operation of the underlying protocols and that we make no guarantee of their security, functionality or availability; and (ii) that the underlying protocols are subject to sudden changes in operating rules, which may materially affect the value, function, name of the virtual currency and/or our ability to support certain virtual currencies. In the event of a fork in a virtual currency, you agree that we may temporarily suspend our Services (with or without advance notice to you) and that we may, in our sole discretion, decide whether or not to support (or cease supporting) either branch of the forked protocol entirely. You also agree that in the event you send a Virtual Currency Transaction at the time of a Virtual Currency fork, we will only honor the originally-intended Virtual Currency Transaction that you sent. You acknowledge and agree that we assume absolutely no responsibility or liability whatsoever in respect of an unsupported branch of a forked protocol.
Identity Verification. During registration of your Account and at any other time you have an Account, you agree to provide us with the information we request for the purposes of ongoing due diligence, identity verification and the detection of money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud, or any other financial crime and permit us to keep a record of such information. You agree and represent and warrant that all information you provide us at any time will not be false, inaccurate or misleading. You will need to complete certain verification procedures before you are permitted to use our Services. Your access to our Services and the limits that apply to your use of our Services, may be altered, suspended or terminated as a result of information collected about you on an ongoing basis and/or your failure to provide us with information we request on a timely basis. You authorize us to | make inquiries, whether directly or through third parties, that we consider necessary to verify your identity or protect you and/or us against fraud or other financial crime, and to take action we reasonably deem necessary based on the results of such inquiries. When we carry out these inquiries, you acknowledge and agree that your personal information may be disclosed to fraud prevention or financial crime agencies and that these agencies may respond to our inquiries in full.
Verification of Users is only an indication of increased likelihood that a User’s identity is correct. Because User verification on the Internet is difficult, we cannot and do not guarantee any User’s identity.
You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs in relation to your Account, and you must keep your Account password secure. We recommend that you use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your Account.

We will not be responsible or liable for any damages, liability or losses caused by any unauthorized use of your Account.

Merchants and business operators in high risk industries may be required to pay higher fees in our sole discretion. If you are unsure whether you or your business is classified as high risk or in violation of Section | 7.1 of this Agreement, please contact [email protected]. Your Account and all Virtual Currency Transactions are made and displayed in the currency of the virtual currency held or the virtual currency of the Virtual Currency Transaction you are conducting.
If you have chosen to setup our conversion feature to allow for an automated conversion of Virtual Currencies when you receive them as a payment or otherwise (ie. an automatic conversion of ETH to BTC), you agree to accept such conversion at the rate provided including, without limitation, our conversion fees, which may be adjusted from time to time. We do not guarantee the availability of any conversion rate.
You authorize us, or our designated third party, to charge or deduct from your Account funds for any applicable Fees owed in connection with transactions completed or approved by you or in connection with your Account via the Services.
Referrals and Affiliates. We currently offer an affiliate program which offers Users who make referrals to us a percentage of our transaction fees earned from such referrals for 5 years.

Sending Payments.

Any payments sent through our Services that are rejected or unclaimed by a recipient will be returned to you as soon as reasonably practicable after the date the payment is rejected and the virtual currency or funds are returned. Our standard fees apply for such transactions.
Completed Transactions. It is the nature of Bitcoin, Litecoin, and the other virtual currencies that we support that all Virtual Currency Transactions are final with no method of refunding, charging back or other recourse for the sender of the virtual currency. As such we are unable to cancel, reverse or provide refunds for any Virtual Currency Transaction made through our Services. We do provide a feedback system so buyers can leave ratings for sellers (and vice versa).
Incomplete Transactions/Overages. If your virtual currency was not received and/or confirmed on the relevant virtual currency platform or you sent more virtual currency then you intended to send we may be able to refund you the virtual currency as long as you have promptly notified us in time and such virtual currency is still within our control. To apply for a refund, open a support ticket providing your transaction ID, verification code, and refund virtual currency address. The ticket must be opened with the email address used for the applicable Virtual Currency Transaction. Refunds will be either (at our discretion): (a) the original amount of the virtual currency we have received and is still within our control; or (b) an amount equivalent to the USD value at the time of the Virtual Currency Transaction. All refunds must be claimed within 30 days of us receiving your virtual currency or it will be forfeited. Refunds of virtual currency and other funds may be returned to you minus our costs, the unsubsidized coin/miner network transaction fee and any other third party charges. For a refund to be honored it must be at least equal to the network transaction fee for that virtual currency times two, otherwise it will be forfeited.
Sent to wrong coin/chain, missing tags, delisted coins, etc. If you have sent virtual currency to the wrong virtual currency, virtual currency wallet or blockchain, or to a delisted virtual currency and it needs to be recovered by us manually there will be a recovery fee equal to 8% of the recovered virtual currency, if the virtual currency can be recovered at all, and we reserve the right in our sole discretion to not attempt to recover small amounts. This would also apply to virtual currency that require a destination tag, payment ID, memo, etc. that was not sent or sent to an incorrect address. We will not recover virtual currency we do not support. You must contact us within 30 days after an applicable Virtual Currency Transaction for us to recover your virtual currency, if recoverable, or it will be forfeited.
No Liability for Errors/Omissions. You accept and acknowledge that we are not liable or responsible for any errors or omissions that are made in connection with any Virtual Currency Transaction initiated via the Services.

In the event your Account is closed, whether by you or us, any virtual currency or funds in your Account must be claimed and removed by you within 30 days of your Account’s closure date. If you fail to claim and remove virtual currency or funds in your Account within 30 days of your Account’s closure date, a recovery and return fee equal to 8% of all the virtual currency and funds in your Account will be charged by us, if the virtual currency can be recovered and returned at all, and we reserve the right in our sole discretion to not attempt to recover and return to you small amounts.
You may not use closure of your Account as a means of evading investigation or inquiries by us. If any queries or investigation is pending at the time you request closure of your Account, we may refuse your request to close your Account and/or hold your virtual currency and/or funds as appropriate to protect us against financial and/or legal liability. If you are later determined to be entitled to some or all of the virtual currency and/or funds in dispute, we will pay such virtual currency and/or funds to you. You will remain responsible and liable for all obligations related to your Account even after such Account is closed.
If you do not access your Account for a period of two years and we have been unable to contact you after three attempts at the last contact address we have for you in our records, your Account may be terminated at BOCT election and in our sole discretion.

Arbitration. Read this section carefully because it requires each party to this Agreement to arbitrate our disputes and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us. For any dispute with us, you agree to first contact us at [email protected] and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that we have not been able to resolve a dispute we have with you after ninety (90) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof, by binding arbitration in accordance with the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) rules in effect at the time of the arbitration, except as they may be modified herein or by mutual agreement of the parties. The number of arbitrators shall be one who shall be mutually selected by BOCT and you. The seat, or legal place, of arbitration shall be London, England. The language to be used in the arbitral proceedings shall be English. The governing law of the Agreement shall be as set forth in Section 10.13 herein. The arbitration award shall be final and binding on the parties. The parties undertake to carry out any award without delay and waive their right to any form of recourse insofar as such waiver can validly be made. Judgment upon the award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof or having jurisdiction over the relevant party or its assets. Each party will be responsible for paying any arbitration fees, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with applicable arbitration rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses.
Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing us from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the English courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights. You agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights or copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, including, without limitation, any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that London, England is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision above is found to be unenforceable.
