2. Eligibility

The Program is offered only to: (a) legal residents of countries that are not the subject of a prohibition order (or any similar order or directive), sanctions or restrictions promulgated or administered by any governmental authority of the United States or Brazil who have reached the age of majority in their jurisdiction of legal residence at the time of participation and (b) legal entities formed and registered in countries that are not the subject of a prohibition order (or any similar order or directive), sanctions or restrictions promulgated or administered by any governmental authority of the United States or Brazil which can form a binding contract with TBC.

Each individual and/or legal entity may maintain only one (1) Account. You agree to: (a) provide accurate, current and complete information; (b) maintain and promptly update your Account information to keep it accurate, current and complete; (C) maintain the security of your Account and you understand that there are certain risks of unauthorized access to your Account; and (d) promptly notify the Company if you discover or otherwise suspect that your Account has been subject to hacking or other unauthorized use. If you are an individual applying for an Account on behalf of a legal entity, you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of that legal entity with the authority to bind that legal entity to these Terms, and that you agree to these Terms on the legal entity’s behalf. You must be legally competent to enter into contracts to participate in the Program. If you are not eligible to participate, you are prohibited from accessing, using and enrolling in the Program.

You are not permitted to use remittance transactions if you are (a) located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of any country to which the United States or Canada has embargoed goods or services; (b) identified as a “Specially Designated National”; or (C) placed on the U.S. Department of Commerce’s “Denied Persons List or Entity List” or any other U.S. export control list.

3. Use of the Service

Remittance transactions enable Senders or Sending Parties to transfer bitcoin or fiat currency to the Company, which is then converted into fiat currency or bitcoin and transferred to an end-user Recipient, provided it is in an Available Country, in real time.

The Company collaborates with Exchange Partners in each available country. These Exchange Partners facilitate the conversion of bitcoin to fiat currency (or vice versa) and the subsequent transfer of funds to the Recipient. Third Party Service Providers, Sending Partners, and Exchange Partners do not act as agents or representatives of The Company. Moreover, Recipients of remittance transactions are not considered customers of The Company by virtue of receiving such a transaction.

The Sending Partners are tasked with collecting and reporting any necessary compliance data related to the Sender. Conversely, The Company is responsible for collecting and reporting any necessary data related to the Recipient. This includes ensuring the lawful use of the service for crime prevention, sanctions screening, and anti-money laundering purposes.

When initiating a remittance transaction, the applicable rate for the Conversion and the amount of funds the recipient will receive are displayed. This amount may reflect rounding, and unless the rate is confirmed within a short period, it will expire and require refreshing. In certain cases, the Recipient, if a customer of the Exchange Partner, may opt to receive the transaction in a different currency than initially displayed. The Company bears no liability for receipts in a different currency or for any value discrepancies.

To execute a remittance transaction, Recipient Information must be provided. This information is retained for transaction purposes and compliance checks. While voluntary, the provision of Recipient Information is essential for processing the transaction. Consent is required for disclosing or transferring both sender and recipient information to facilitate the transaction and for legal compliance.

By engaging in the remittance service, users acknowledge the transfer of bitcoin, not fiat currency, and the roles and responsibilities of all parties involved in facilitating these cross-border transactions.

13. Disclaimers and Risk Disclosure

EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WHICH MAY INCLUDE IN BRAZIL, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE PURSUANT TO APPLICABLE LAW, THE BITCOIN COMPANY AND ITS COMPANY PARTIES AFFILIATES, AND LICENSORS EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, COLLATERAL, STATUTORY, OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR OR GENERAL PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. THE BITCOIN COMPANY AND ITS COMPANY PARTIES, AFFILIATES, AND LICENSORS DO NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THE DATA, CONTENT, ANALYTICS, FEATURES, OR INFORMATION PROVIDED THROUGH THE PROGRAM, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION TRANSACTION DATA OR USER SUBMISSIONS OR OTHER DATA PROVIDED BY OTHER USERS, TO BE UNINTERRUPTED, ACCURATE, USEFUL, OR FREE OF ERRORS, VIRUSES, OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. YOU ASSUME THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM.

(b) System Failure. You accept all risks associated with the use of the Program, and any failures that might arise as a result thereof, including, but not limited to, in connection with the failure of hardware, software, and internet connections. The nature of bitcoin means that any technological difficulties experienced by the Company may prevent us from being able to successfully remit the sent funds.

(C) Market Disruptions. You agree that we are not liable for any price fluctuations in bitcoin. In the event of a market disruption, we may suspend the Program. Except where prohibited by applicable law, which may include in Brazil, we will not be liable for any losses suffered by you resulting from such actions. Following any such event, when the Program resumes, you acknowledge that prevailing market rates may differ significantly from the rates available prior to such event.

(d) Risks Inherent to Bitcoin. (i) Bitcoin transactions are irreversible and, accordingly, losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions may not be recoverable and except where prohibited by applicable law, which may include Brazil, the Company shall not be held liable for any fraudulent or accidental transactions; (ii) bitcoin is not legal tender and is not backed by a government or central bank and the Company is not a bank. As such, there is no protection, such as deposit insurance, to cover any losses associated with bitcoin (or Bitcoin); (iii) legislative and regulatory changes or actions at the state, provincial, federal or international level may adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange, and value of bitcoin; (iv) the bitcoin public ledger blockchain is maintained by a vast unidentified private computer network spread around the world and choosing to participate in bitcoin is at your own risk and understanding of this network; (v) bitcoin and Bitcoin are a target for fraud and the potential for fraud is especially likely when you engage in transactions with external Bitcoin addresses; (vi) bitcoin and Bitcoin are a target for hackers and hacking can occur even when you use the strongest security settings and as such your bitcoin may be irretrievably stolen; (vii) your bank accounts are at increased risk of being hacked when linked to Bitcoin accounts; (viii) some bitcoin transactions shall be deemed to be made when recorded and/or confirmed on a public ledger, which is not necessarily the date or time that you have initiated the transaction; (ix) the value of bitcoin may be derived from the continued willingness of market participants to exchange fiat currency for bitcoin, which may result in the potential for permanent and total loss of value of a particular bitcoin should the market for that bitcoin disappear; (x) there is no assurance that a person who accepts bitcoin as payment today will continue to do so in the future; (xi) the volatility and unpredictability of the price of bitcoin relative to fiat currency may result in significant loss over a short period of time; and (xii) any bond or trust account held by the Company may not be sufficient to cover all losses incurred by our customers.

14. Limitation of Liability

(a) Limitation. EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WHICH MAY INCLUDE BRAZIL, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL THE BITCOIN COMPANY OR ITS COMPANY PARTIES, AFFILIATES, CONTRACTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OR THIRD-PARTY PARTNERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES ARISING OR RELATED TO THE PROGRAM, EVEN IF SUCH PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

(b) Cap. EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WHICH MAY INCLUDE BRAZIL, IN NO EVENT WILL THE BITCOIN COMPANY’S OR ITS COMPANY PARTIES’, AFFILIATES’, CONTRACTORS’, EMPLOYEES’, AGENTS’, OR THIRD PARTY PARTNERS’ TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES, AND CAUSES OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR YOUR USE OF THE PROGRAM (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, WARRANTY, OR OTHERWISE) EXCEED THE GREATER OF EITHER (I) THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO US IN THE PRIOR TWELVE MONTHS TO USE OUR PROGRAM, OR (II) ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100.00).

(C) Exclusions. The limitations set forth in this Section 14 will not limit or exclude liability for the gross negligence, fraud or intentional misconduct of Company or the other Company Parties or for any other matters in which liability cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law. Additionally, some jurisdictions, including Brazil, may not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.

15. Release

Except where prohibited by applicable law, which may include Brazil, you release Company and the other Company Parties from responsibility, liability, claims, demands and/or damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown (including claims of negligence), arising out of or related to disputes between users and the acts or omissions of third parties. If you are a consumer who resides in California, you hereby waive your rights under California Civil Code § 1542, which provides: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”

16. Transfer and Processing Data

In order for us to provide our Programs, we may process, transfer and store information about you in the United States, Brazil and other countries, where we and our service providers are located, where you may not have the same rights and protections as you do under local law. For more information, please see our Privacy Policy.

17. Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

Please read the following section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with Company and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us, unless you opt out of arbitration by following the instructions set forth below. Except where prohibited by applicable law, which may include Brazil, no class or representative actions or arbitrations are allowed under this arbitration provision and arbitration precludes you from suing in court or having a jury trial.

(a) No Representative Actions. Except where prohibited by applicable law, which may include Brazil, you and Company agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Program is personal to you and Company and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual action, and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding.

(b) Arbitration of Disputes. Except where prohibited by applicable law, which may include Brazil, and except for small claims disputes in which you or Company seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or Company seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged infringement or misappropriation of intellectual property, you and Company waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any other dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Program, including claims related to privacy and data security, (collectively, “Disputes”) resolved in court. Instead, for any Dispute that you have against Company you agree to first contact Company and attempt to resolve the claim informally by sending a written notice of your claim (“Notice”) to Company by email at legal@thebitcoincompany.com. The Notice must (a) include your name, residence address, email address, and telephone number; (b) describe the nature and basis of the Dispute; and (c) set forth the specific relief sought. Our notice to you will be similar in form to that described above. If you and Company cannot reach an agreement to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after such Notice is received, then either party may submit the Dispute to binding arbitration administered by JAMS or, under the limited circumstances set forth above, in court. All Disputes submitted to JAMS will be resolved through confidential, binding arbitration before one arbitrator. Arbitration proceedings will be held in Travis County, Texas unless you are a consumer, in which case you may elect to hold the arbitration in your county of residence. For purposes of this Section 17, a “consumer” means a person using the Programs for personal, family or household purposes. You and Company agree that Disputes will be held in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“JAMS Rules”). The most recent version of the JAMS Rules are available on the JAMS website and are hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the JAMS Rules or waive your opportunity to read the JAMS Rules and waive any claim that the JAMS Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason.

(C) FAA. Except where prohibited by applicable law, which may include Brazil, you and Company agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 17 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the “FAA”). As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any Dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court, including the power to determine the question of arbitrability. The arbitrator may conduct only an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.

(d) Confidentiality. The arbitration will allow for the discovery or exchange of non-privileged information relevant to the Dispute. The arbitrator, Company, and you will maintain the confidentiality of any arbitration proceedings, judgments and awards, including information gathered, prepared and presented for purposes of the arbitration or related to the Dispute(s) therein. The arbitrator will have the authority to make appropriate rulings to safeguard confidentiality, unless the law provides to the contrary. The duty of confidentiality does not apply to the extent that disclosure is necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy or in connection with a judicial challenge to an arbitration award or its enforcement, or to the extent that disclosure is otherwise required by law or judicial decision.

(e) Costs. You and Company agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee (up to a maximum of $250 if you are a consumer), and Company will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Company, Company will pay all JAMS fees and costs.

(f) Jurisdiction. You and Company agree that the state or federal courts of the State of Texas and the United States sitting in Travis County, Texas have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.

(g) Time Limit. Any Dispute must be filed within one year after the relevant claim arose; otherwise, the Dispute is permanently barred, which means that you and Company will not have the right to assert the claim.

(h) Opt-Out. You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within 30 days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 17 by emailing support@thebitcoincompany.com. In order to be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name and address and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with Section 17, unless otherwise prohibited by applicable law, which may include the laws of Poland.

(i) Severability. If any portion of this Section 17 is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, (a) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from these Terms; (b) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of this Section 17 or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Section 17; and (c) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration. Further, if any part of this Section 17 is found to prohibit an individual claim seeking public injunctive relief, that provision will have no effect to the extent such relief is allowed to be sought out of arbitration, and the remainder of this Section 17 will be enforceable.

18. Governing Law and Venue

Except where prohibited by applicable law, which may include Poland, any dispute arising from these Terms and your access or use of the Program will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of Texas, except to the extent pre-empted by U.S. federal law, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of Texas or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in the state or federal courts of Texas and the United States, respectively, sitting in Travis County, Texas.

19. Changes to the Terms and Additional Terms

We may make changes to the Program and the Terms at any time and at our sole discretion. For example, we may temporarily or permanently prohibit you from using any features of the Program at any time and at our sole discretion, and/or we may add new Program Terms, delete Program Terms or change existing Program Terms.

We may supply different or additional terms in relation to our Program or some of our anticipated Programs, and those different or additional terms become part of these Terms if you use such Programs.

It is your responsibility to keep your contact information current and up-to-date.

We’ll give you notice of other changes to the Program or the Terms by posting an updated copy of these Terms when you log into the Website or use the App or where required by applicable law by sending you a notice in writing. Where your express acceptance of the change is not required by applicable law, your continued participation in the Program after we make any change signifies your acceptance of such changes.

21. Severability

If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

22. Assignment

The Bitcoin Company may transfer or assign these Terms or its rights and obligations under these terms or subcontract or delegate its rights and obligations under these terms to third parties without your consent. All provisions contained in these Terms shall extend to and be binding upon you and the Company’s successors and assigns.

We may communicate with you regarding the Program by electronic communications or direct mail using information you provided during the registration process or subsequent requests. Your consent to receive electronic communications includes any notices or other information that we may be required by law to provide you in writing or otherwise. With your permission, we may also send push notifications to your device if you install the mobile application. You may opt out of receiving certain marketing communications by following the instructions in the communication or as set out in our Privacy Policy.

24. Miscellaneous

The failure of Company to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. These Terms reflect the entire agreement between the parties relating to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior agreements, representations, statements and understandings of the parties. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Use of the word “including” will be interpreted to mean “including without limitation.” Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third-party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.

25. App Stores

(a) Apple App Store Additional License Terms. If the App, in whole or in part, is provided to you through the Apple Inc. (Apple Inc. together with all of its affiliates, “Apple”) App Store, the following terms and conditions apply to you in addition to all the other terms and conditions of these Terms: The parties acknowledge these Terms are concluded between the parties, and not with Apple. The responsibility for the App and content thereof is governed by these Terms.
