Terms of Service

Last updated: November 21, 2020

 

This User Agreement (“Agreement”) is a contract between you and Sanko Global Inc. d/b/a PureCoin, a Company incorporated in New Jersey (“PureCoin,” “we”, “us” or “our”) and applies to your use of the PureCoin website, Bitcoin Transaction Machines(BTM) and all services described herein (collectively, the “PureCoin Services”).

 

Introduction

 

By signing up to use a PureCoin Account, you agree to comply with and be legally bound by this Agreement. If you do not agree to any of the terms in this Agreement, or any subsequent modification to this Agreement, you may not use any of the PureCoin Services and must cancel your PureCoin Account, free of charge, as set forth below.

We may amend this Agreement by posting on the PureCoin Site or emailing to you a revised Agreement. Any revised Agreement shall be effective immediately upon your express approval, or one month after the date of posting, except where the changes are required by law or on the instruction of a competent governmental agency. By continuing to use the PureCoin Services once the revised Agreement is effective, you agree to be bound by the Agreement. We may (a) modify or discontinue any portion of the PureCoin Services, and (b) limit or terminate your access to the PureCoin Services, at any time, without notice to you. You agree that PureCoin shall not be liable to you or any third party for any modification or termination of the PureCoin Services, or limitations or termination of your access to the PureCoin Services, except to the extent otherwise expressly set forth herein.

To be eligible to use the PureCoin Services, you must be at least 18 years old. By accessing or using the PureCoin Services you represent and warrant that you are 18 or older.

 

Please note the following risks of using PureCoin Services:

 

 

  • Every Bitcoin Transaction is confirmed by the Bitcoin network.  The confirmation takes a period of time, and will be unconfirmed during that      period of time (usually less than one hour, but up to one day or more). A Bitcoin Transaction is not complete while it is being confirmed. Bitcoin      associated with transactions that are in a pending state will be designated accordingly.

  • The risk of loss in trading or holding bitcoin can be substantial. Therefore, you should carefully      consider whether trading or holding Bitcoin is suitable for you in light      of your financial condition. The price or value of Bitcoin can change      rapidly, decrease, and potentially even fall to zero. If you use a PureCoin      product which allows you and/or third parties to access and hold bitcoin      private keys, you acknowledge that PureCoin is not responsible for      safeguarding such keys and that PureCoin is not responsible for any loss      of Bitcoin resulting from theft, loss, or mishandling of bitcoin private  keys outside its control.

 

  

 

  1. Basic PureCoin      Services.

 

 

                          Your PureCoin Account encompasses the following PureCoin Services, among others:

·  

 

  • One customer account       that allows users to purchase Bitcoin with cash through which PureCoin       can facilitate Bitcoin Transactions pursuant to instructions submitted by       a user or authorized entity to PureCoin (the “Customer Account”);

  • A Bitcoin conversion service through which users can buy Bitcoin from, and sell Bitcoin to, PureCoin (the “Conversion Service”); and each of these PureCoin Services is described in detail below.

 

 

                   2. Creating a PureCoin Account.

 

                  2.1. Registration of PureCoin  Account. In order to use any of the PureCoin Services, you must first register at a BTM                               by providing your name, phone number, identity document (if required) and affirming your acceptance of this Agreement. Upon successful completion of the registration process, PureCoin will establish your PureCoin Account. PureCoin may, in our sole discretion, refuse to allow you to establish a PureCoin Account.

A limited account may be created with lower limits which do not require identification, but this may be changed at the discretion of the PureCoin Team.

                  2.2. Identity Verification. In order to use certain features of the PureCoin Services, including certain transfers of Bitcoin and/or currency, you may be required to provide PureCoin with certain personal information, including, but not limited to, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, date of birth, taxpayer identification number, and government identification number. PureCoin may also require you to answer certain questions or take actions in order to verify your identity, provide the PureCoin Services to you, or comply with applicable law. In submitting this or any other personal information as may be required, you verify that the information is accurate and authentic, and you agree to update PureCoin if any information changes. You hereby authorize PureCoin to, directly or through third parties, make reasonably necessary inquiries to verify your identity and/or to protect against fraud, including to query identity information contained in public reports and to take actions we deem necessary. You further authorize any and all third parties to which such inquiries may be directed to fully respond to such inquiries.

                 2.3. Consent to Collection of Photographic Data. In opening an account with PureCoin, your photo selfie will be collected and stored by PureCoin for the purpose of verifying your identity. Your photographic data will be permanently deleted from PureCoin’s systems no later than five (5) years after your last transaction with PureCoin.   By agreeing to PureCoin’s Terms of Service, you agree to PureCoin’s collection, use, and storage of your photographic image for the above defined purpose.

 

                3.  Bitcoin Transactions.

 

                3.1. Transactions with PureCoin. When buying Bitcoin through our BTMs, you are buying from PureCoin directly.  PureCoin does not act as an intermediary or marketplace between other buyers and sellers of Bitcoin. The service is subject to the PureCoin spot price, means the liquidity adjusted price of a given Bitcoin amount in terms of local currency as quoted to you on the PureCoin Site at the time you begin a transaction. The spot price is stated as a “Buy Price,” the price in terms of local currency at which you purchase Bitcoin from PureCoin. For the purpose of any transaction which incorporates the spot price, you agree, as a condition of using any PureCoin Services, to accept the spot price as the sole conversion metric.

                3.1.1. Bitcoin Purchase Transactions. After successfully completing the Verification Procedures for registered customer or limited unregistered procedures, you may purchase Bitcoin from PureCoin, subject to applicable limits. If your Bitcoin purchase is marked as complete or pending, you cannot cancel, reverse, or change the order. In connection with any purchase of Bitcoin from PureCoin, PureCoin will use good faith efforts to fulfill such purchase order at the applicable spot price quoted on the PureCoin Site at the time that you place such order. However, from time to time, it may be necessary for PureCoin to delay fulfillment of a purchase order until such time as we are able to execute the transaction. In such cases, we will notify you through the PureCoin Site prior to the completion of your purchase order that the amount of Bitcoin that you will receive will be determined based on the applicable spot price quoted on the PureCoin Site at the subsequent point at which PureCoin, with your further approval, may execute your transaction.

                3.1.2. Bitcoin Sale Transactions. PureCoin doesn’t currently offer sale transactions, but is looking to expand into this.

                3.2. Third Party Transactions.  PureCoin does not permit the transmission of bitcoin to any third-party wallets. All purchases should generally be for the purchase of the registered/limited user.

                3.2.1. Validity of Third Party Addresses.  If you initiate a Bitcoin Transaction by entering a third-party recipient’s Bitcoin  address, PureCoin has the right to alter the status of your account.

                3.2.2. Bitcoin Storage & Transmission Delays. PureCoin does not hold any of private keys for its users. As such, you accept the risk that a Bitcoin Transaction facilitated by PureCoin may be delayed and you agree not to hold PureCoin responsible for any damages or injury arising out of or related to such delay.

                3.2.3. Third Party Disputes.  PureCoin has no control over, or liability for, the delivery, quality, safety, legality or any other aspect of any goods or services that you may purchase or sell to or from a third party (including other users of PureCoin Services). PureCoin is not responsible for ensuring that a buyer or a seller you are dealing with will actually complete the transaction or is authorized to do so. If you experience a problem with any goods or services purchased from, or sold to, a third party in connection with bitcoin transferred using the PureCoin Services, or if you have a dispute with such third party, you must handle it directly with that third party. Due to the nature of Bitcoin, any Bitcoin Transaction conducted using the PureCoin Services is final regardless of any defects in or non-delivery of any goods or services purchased in connection with such Bitcoin Transaction, or any other aspect of your transaction or relationship with the relevant third party. If you believe a third party has behaved in a fraudulent, misleading, or inappropriate manner, or if you cannot adequately resolve a dispute with a third party, you may notify PureCoin Support at support@purecoin.tech so that we may consider whether or not further action is necessary.

                3.3. Refunds. Bitcoin transactions are irreversible.  Therefore, PureCoin is not responsible for issuing refunds regardless of whether the customer was the victim of fraud, mistake or loss of private key.

                3.4. Taxes. It is your sole responsibility to determine whether, and to what extent, any taxes apply to any transactions associated with your receipt or transfer of bitcoin, and/or to the Bitcoin Transactions you conduct through the PureCoin Services, and to withhold, collect, report and remit the correct amounts of taxes to the appropriate tax authorities.

                3.5. Limits. PureCoin imposes limits on the value of Bitcoin that you may buy in a day. PureCoin reserves the right to change posted limits as we deem necessary or appropriate. PureCoin does not guarantee the availability of its services.  If you purchase Bitcoin from PureCoin, we do not guarantee that you may sell your Bitcoin to PureCoin. If you wish to raise your limits beyond the posted amounts, submit a request to support@purecoin.tech or compliance@sankoglobal.com. We may require you to submit additional information about yourself, provide records, and arrange for teleconferences with PureCoin staff (the “Enhanced Due Diligence Process”). 

PureCoin reserves the right to charge your costs and fees associated with Extended Due Diligence, provided that we notify you in advance of any such charges accruing. In our sole discretion, we may refuse to raise your limits or we may lower your limits at a subsequent time even if you have completed the Enhanced Due Diligence Process.

                3.6. Conversion Fee. Each Conversion Service transaction is subject to a fee (the “Conversion Fee”) charged by PureCoin which consists of: (a) a fee for the conversion of local currency (e.g., U.S. Dollars) for Bitcoin (or vice versa) which is calculated as a percentage of the local currency to be converted, plus (b) either of: (i) a fixed transfer fee which may be applied to cover applicable bank fees, if any, or (ii) a convenience fee. PureCoin will not process a conversion if a fixed transfer fee exceeds the value of your transaction. The applicable Conversion Fee will be displayed to you on the PureCoin Site prior to your confirmation of a Conversion Service transaction.

               3.7. Payments.

               3.7.1. You agree to pay for any Bitcoin purchase made upon confirmation of an order, regardless of changes in the applicable Buy Price Conversion Rate prior to completion of the purchase transaction, with such payment to be made in good funds in the amount calculated in the manner specified herein.

               3.7.2. Prior to the completion of any transaction, we reserve the right to refuse to cancel any proposed purchases or sales of Bitcoin or transfers to or from your Wallet(s) in our sole discretion, including but not limited to instances where PureCoin suspects the transaction involves (or has a high risk of involvement in) money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud, or any other type of financial crime, in response to a subpoena, court order, or other government order, or if PureCoin suspects the transaction relates to Prohibited Use or a Prohibited Business as set forth below. PureCoin will cancel the transaction before execution and we are under no obligation to allow you to reinitiate a purchase or sale order at the same price or on the same terms as the cancelled transaction.  This paragraph does not apply to completed transactions.

              3.7.3. Once a transaction is completed, the transaction is permanent and irreversible.  You cannot withdraw from a transaction to buy or sell Bitcoin once you have agreed to the terms of a transaction with PureCoin, even if the price of Bitcoin fluctuates.  PureCoin has no control over the market price for Bitcoin.

Upon receipt of the Resolution Notice, you will have 20 business days to accept or reject the offer or determination, which you must do by following the instructions set out in the Resolution Notice. Failure to respond to a Resolution Notice will be deemed to be a withdrawal of the complaint.

             6.3. Appeals. In the event that you reject an offer or determination (“Rejection”), please set out the reasons for the Rejection and include all additional information that you believe is pertinent to your complaint. Any Rejection will be treated as an application to appeal the offer or determination set out in the Resolution Notice.

We will acknowledge your Appeal within 48 hours of its receipt if you contact us in the prescribed electronic way, and within ten business days if you contact us in any other prescribed way.

Notwithstanding its decision regarding the Resolution Notice, the Appeals Committee may also make a new offer to resolve the complaint. Upon receipt of the Final Notice, you will have 20 business days to accept or reject the offer or determination, which you must do by following the instructions set out in the Final Notice. Failure to respond to a Final Notice will be deemed to be a withdrawal of the complaint. For consumers only: if you fail to respond to a Final Notice and file a claim in a competent court, your failure may be used as evidence of your unwillingness to settle the issue and/or the vexatious nature of the complaint.

             6.4. Offers. Any offer made under this Section 6 will only become binding on PureCoin if you accept the offer by following the instructions provided by PureCoin within the stated timeframe. Any offer under this Section 6 will not constitute any admission by PureCoin of any wrongdoing or liability regarding the subject matter of the complaint. Any acceptance of an offer by you will constitute an acceptance that the complaint is resolved and an undertaking that you will not file a claim in any competent court against PureCoin regarding the subject matter of the complaint.

             6.5. Claims. This provision only applies to consumers. You agree to use the complaints procedure of this Section 6 before filing any claim in a competent court.

This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by PureCoin without restriction, including without limitation to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the PureCoin Services.
