The Clear Coin Services may only be used by individuals and entities who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. No person under the age of 18 may use the Site and/or Application. Your use of the Site and/or Application will be deemed to be a representation that you are 18 years of age or older. We require that all purchases be made by individuals 18 years of age or older.

The risk of loss in trading or holding Digital Currency can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether trading or holding Digital Currency is suitable for you in light of your financial condition. No statements in the Web Site are intended to or constitute legal advice, including tax or financial advice or recommendations. You should seek the advice of your own legal, tax and financial advisors regarding the consequences to you of purchasing or selling precious metals. The information in this Web Site does not constitute any investment advice or investment service and is not intended as an offer or solicitation to purchase any security or financial instrument.
2. Creating a Coin Clear Account.
2.1. Registration of Coin Clear Account.
In order to use any of the Coin Clear Services, you must first register by providing your name, an e-mail address, password, and affirming your acceptance of this Agreement. Coin Clear may, in our sole discretion, refuse to allow you to establish a Coin Clear Account, or limit the number of Coin Clear Accounts that a single user may establish and maintain at any time.
2.3. Digital Currency Storage & Transmission Delays.
Coin Clear securely stores all Digital Currency private keys in our control in a combination of online and offline storage. As a result, it may be necessary for Coin Clear to retrieve certain information from offline storage in order to facilitate a Digital Currency Transaction in accordance with your instructions, which may delay the initiation or crediting of such Digital Currency Transaction for 48 hours or more. You acknowledge and agree that a Digital Currency Transaction facilitated by Coin Clear may be delayed.
2.4. Advanced Protocols.
Unless specifically announced on our website or through some other official public statement of Coin Clear, we do not support metacoins, colored coins, side chains, or other derivative, enhanced, or forked protocols, tokens, or coins which supplement or interact with a Digital Currency supported by Coin Clear (collectively, “Advanced Protocols”). Do not use your Coin Clear Account to attempt to receive, request, send, store, or engage in any other type of transaction involving an Advanced Protocol. The Coin Clear platform is not configured to detect and/or secure Advanced Protocol transactions and Coin Clear assumes absolutely no responsibility whatsoever in respect to Advanced Protocols.
2.5 Operation of Digital Currency Protocols.
Coin Clear does not own or control the underlying software protocols which govern the operation of Digital Currencies supported on our platform. In general, the underlying protocols are open source and anyone can use, copy, modify, and distribute them. By using the Coin Clear platform, you acknowledge and agree (i) that Coin Clear is not responsible for operation of the underlying protocols and that Coin Clear makes no guarantee of their functionality, security, or availability; and (ii) that the underlying protocols are subject to sudden changes in operating rules (a/k/a “forks”), and that such forks may materially affect the value, function, and/or even the name of the Digital Currency you store in the Coin Clear platform. In the event of a fork, you agree that Coin Clear may temporarily suspend Coin Clear operations (with or without advance notice to you) and that Coin Clear may, in its sole discretion, decide whether or not to support (or cease supporting) either branch of the forked protocol entirely. You acknowledge and agree that Coin Clear assumes absolutely no responsibility whatsoever in respect of an unsupported branch of a forked protocol.
3. Conversion Services.
3.1. In General.
Eligible users in certain jurisdictions may buy or sell supported Digital Currency through the Conversion Services. The Conversion Services are subject to the Coin Clear “Conversion Rate” for the given transaction. “Conversion Rate” means the price of a given supported Digital Currency amount in terms of Fiat Currency or other Digital Currency as quoted on the Coin Clear Site. The Conversion Rate is stated either as a “Buy Price” or as a “Sell Price,” which is the price in terms of Fiat Currency or Digital Currency at which you may buy or sell supported Digital Currency to Coin Clear. You acknowledge that the quoted Buy Price Conversion Rate may not be the same as the Sell Price Conversion Rate at any given time, and that Coin Clear may add a margin or “spread” to the quoted Conversion Rate. You agree, as a condition of using any Coin Clear Conversion Services, to accept the Conversion Rate as the sole conversion metric. Coin Clear reserves the right to delay any Conversion Service transaction if it perceives a risk of fraud or illegal activity. Coin Clear does not guarantee the availability of its Conversion Service, and the act of purchasing supported Digital Currency from Coin Clear does not result in a guarantee that you may sell your supported Digital Currency to Coin Clear.
3.2. Purchase Transactions.
After successfully completing the Verification Procedures (see Appendix 2, you may purchase supported Digital Currency by linking a valid payment method. You can either manually authorize or use the Automated Services of Coin Clear to initiate debits from your selected payment method(s) in settlement of purchase transactions. A Conversion Fee (defined below) applies to all purchase transactions. Although Coin Clear will attempt to deliver supported Digital Currency to you as promptly as possible, funds may be debited from your selected payment method before Digital Currency is delivered to your Coin Clear Account. We may debit your selected payment method, such as your bank account or credit card, as soon as the same day you initiate the purchase but your payment may take three or more business days to process. We will make best efforts to fulfill all transactions, but in the rare circumstance where Coin Clear cannot fulfill your purchase order, we will notify you and seek your approval to fulfill the purchase order at the contemporaneous Price Conversion Rate. To secure the performance of your obligations under this Agreement, you grant to Coin Clear a lien on and security interest in and to the balances in your account.
3.3. Sale Transactions.
After successfully completing the Verification Procedures (see Appendix 2, you may manually authorize to sell supported Digital Currency by linking a valid payment method. You authorize Coin Clear to debit your Coin Clear Account(s) and initiate payments to your selected payment method(s) in settlement of sell transactions. An applicable Conversion Fee (defined below) applies to all sale transactions. Your receipt of funds will depend on the payment type and may take up to three or more business days.
3.4. Conversion Fees.
Each Conversion Service transaction is subject to a fee (a “Conversion Fee”). On a sale transaction, the applicable Conversion Fee is displayed to you on the Coin Clear Site prior to you completing a Conversion Service transaction, however, in purchase transactions it is included in the calculation of the Buy Price. Coin Clear will not process a conversion transaction if the Conversion Fee and any other associated fees as may apply, such as wire transfer fees, exceed the value of your transaction. Coin Clear may waive some portion of the Conversion Fee depending on the payment method you select. The availability of each Payment Method depends on a number of factors, including but not limited to your location, the identification information you have provided to us, and limitations imposed by third party payment processors. You can view the current fee applicable to your location and payment method at our fee page. Coin Clear reserves the right to adjust its Conversion Fees and any applicable waivers at any time. We will always notify you of the Conversion Fee which applies to your transaction when you authorize the transaction and in each receipt, we issue to you.
3.5. Reversals; Cancellations.
You cannot cancel, reverse, or change any transaction marked as complete or pending. If your payment is not successful or if your payment method has insufficient funds, you authorize Coin Clear, in its sole discretion, either to cancel the transaction or to debit your other payment methods, including Coin Clear balances or other linked accounts, in any amount necessary to complete the transaction. You are responsible for maintaining an adequate balance and/or sufficient credit limits in order to avoid overdraft, NSF, or similar fees charged by your payment provider. Coin Clear reserves the right to refuse to process, or to cancel or reverse, any purchases or sales of Digital Currency in its sole discretion, even after funds have been debited from your account(s), if Coin Clear 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; if Coin Clear reasonably suspects that the transaction is erroneous; or if Coin Clear suspects the transaction relates to Prohibited Use or a Prohibited Business as set forth below. In such instances, Coin Clear will reverse the transaction and we are under no obligation to allow you to reinstate a purchase or sale order at the same price or on the same terms as the cancelled transaction.
3.6. Recurring Transactions.
If you initiate recurring Conversion Service transactions, you authorize Coin Clear to initiate recurring electronic payments in accordance with your selected Conversion Service and any corresponding payment accounts, such as recurring automated clearing house (ACH) debit or credit entries from or to your linked bank account. Your recurring transactions will occur based on your automation settings until either you or Coin Clear cancels the recurring order. If you select a U.S. Bank Account as your payment method for a recurring transaction, and such transaction falls on a weekend or holiday, or after bank business hours, the ACH credit or debit will be executed on the next business day, although the Digital Currency Conversion Rate at the time of the regularly-scheduled transaction will apply. If your Bank is unable to process any electronic ACH debit entry, Coin Clear will notify you of cancellation of the transaction and may avail itself of remedies set forth in this User Agreement to recover any amount owed to Coin Clear. This authorization will remain in full force and effect until you change your automation settings in the Coin Clear app, or until you provide us written notification at firstname.lastname@example.org. You agree to notify Coin Clear in writing of any changes in your linked bank account information prior to a recurring transaction. Coin Clear may, at any time, terminate recurring transactions by providing notice to you.
3.7. Payment Services Partners.
Coin Clear may use a third-party payment processor to process any US Dollar payment between you and Coin Clear, including but not limited to payments in relation to your use of the Conversion Service.
