You agree to provide us with the information we request for the purposes of 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 will need to complete certain verification procedures before you are permitted to use the NodeSwap Services and your access to one or more NodeSwap Services, including certain transfers of E-Money and Masternodes, and the limits that apply to your use of the NodeSwap Services, may be altered as a result of information collected on an ongoing basis. The information we request may include certain personal information, including, but not limited to, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, date of birth, taxpayer identification number, government identification number, and information regarding your bank account (such as the name of the bank, the account type, routing number, and account number).

You authorise us to make the 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.
2.3 Access. To access the NodeSwap Services, you must have the necessary equipment (such as a smartphone or tablet) and the associated telecommunication service subscriptions to access the Internet. The NodeSwap Services can be accessed directly using the NodeSwap Site.
3.1. Loading. You can load funds into your E-Money Wallet using one of the payment methods available in the NodeSwap Site, such as a credit or debit card, or bank transfer (your E-Money Wallet will show loaded funds once we have received them). When you "load"funds into the E-Money Wallet you will be issued with E-Money by NodeSwap Payments. The E-Money Wallet is not a deposit account which means that you E-Money will not be protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. However, NodeSwap Payments will hold funds received in a designated safekeeping account with a regulated financial institution. E-Money held in an E-Money Wallet will not earn any interest. Your E-Money Wallet may hold E-Money denominated in different currencies and we will show the E-Money balance for each currency that you hold.
3.2. Purchase of Masternodes. To purchase Masternodes using E-Money, you must follow the relevant instructions on the NodeSwap Site. A purchase of Masternodes using E-money should occur on the business day we receive your instructions.
3.3. Receipt of instructions. If we receive instructions from you to purchase Masternodes using E-Money on a non-business day or after 4:30 pm (Singapore time) on a business day, we may treat those instructions as if they were received by us on the following business day.
3.5. Revocation. When you give us instructions to purchase Masternodes using E-Money, you cannot withdraw your consent to that purchase unless the purchase is not due to occur until an agreed date in the future e.g. this may occur if you set up a recurring purchase of Masternodes (+a " Future Transaction"). In the case of a Future Transaction, you may withdraw your consent up until the end of the business day before the date that the Future Transaction is due to take place. To withdraw your consent to a Future Transaction follow the instructions on the NodeSwap Site.
3.6. Account Information. You will be able to see your E-Money Wallet balance and your transaction history using the NodeSwap Site, including (i) the amount (and currency) of each Masternodes Purchase, (ii) a reference to identify the payer and / or payee (as appropriate), (iii) any fees charged (including a breakdown of the fees), (iv) where there has been a currency exchange, the rate of exchange, and the amount (in the new currency) after exchange (where you are the payer) or the amount (in the original currency) before the exchange (where you are the payee), and (v) the debit or credit date of each Masternodes Purchase (as appropriate).
3.7. Redeeming E-Money. You may redeem all or part of any E-Money held in your E-Money Wallet at any time by selecting the relevant option in the NodeSwap Site and following the instructions. Unless agreed otherwise, funds will be transferred to e-wallet you have registered with us.
If this Agreement is terminated, we will redeem any E-Money remaining in your NodeSwap E-Money Wallet and transfer funds to the bank account you have registered with us.
Prior to redeeming E-Money from your E-Money Wallet, we may conduct checks for the purposes of preventing fraud, money laundering, terrorist financing and other financial crimes. This may mean you are prevented or delayed from withdrawing E-Money.
3.8. Unauthorised and Incorrect Transactions. Where a purchase of Masternodes and / or redemption of E-Money is initiated from your E-Money Wallet using your credentials, we will assume that you authorised such transaction, unless you notify us otherwise.
If you believe you did not authorise a particular transaction or that a transaction was incorrectly carried out, you must contact us as soon as possible and in any case no later than 13 months after the relevant transaction occurred by email free at email@example.com. It is important that you regularly check your E-Money Wallet balance and your transaction history regularly to ensure any unauthorised or incorrect transactions are identified and notified to us at the earliest possible opportunity. We are not responsible for any claim for unauthorised or incorrect transactions unless you have notified us in accordance with this section.
3.9. Refund rights. If an unauthorised transaction occurs, we will refund you the amount of that transaction within one business day and restore your E-Money Wallet to the state it would have been in had the unauthorised transaction not taken place. Generally, you will not be liable for losses incurred after you have notified us of the unauthorised use of your E-Money Wallet or if we have failed at any time to provide you with the means for notifying us; however:
Where there is a dispute between us and you regarding an unauthorised transaction, we may temporarily credit your E-Money Wallet whilst we settle the dispute. Where we determine that the transaction was authorised, we may reverse that credit and correct errors made in any statement of E-Money Wallet without prior notice to you. You will also be liable to us for any E-Money you have transferred which was temporarily credited to your E-Money Wallet.
Where a transaction is made incorrectly (e.g. through our error) we shall refund to you the amount of that transaction without undue delay and restore your E-Money Wallet to the state in which it would have been had the transaction not have taken place, although we will endeavour to provide you with reasonable notice where possible. We will also pay any charges for which we are responsible, and for any interest which you can show that you have had to pay as a consequence of any incorrect or incomplete transaction.
Irrespective of our liability, on your request, we shall try to trace any incorrect or incomplete transaction initiated by you free of charge. However, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to trace such transactions.
3.10. Appointment of Regulated Third Parties. You may appoint appropriately regulated third parties to access your E-Money Wallet. If you do, you should be aware that by virtue of such access, that third party may access your transactional and other data, and / or may initiate transfers from your E-Money Wallet.
3.11. Refusing to deal with Regulated Third Parties. We may refuse access to regulated third parties for objectively justified and duly evidenced reasons relating to unauthorised or fraudulent access to your E-Money Wallet. In such cases, unless we are prohibited by applicable law, we will inform you that that third party's access has been denied and the reasons why. We will permit access again once we are satisfied that the reasons for refusing access no longer exist.
4.1. In General. Your Masternodes Wallet enables you to send Masternodes to, and request, receive, and store Masternodes from, third parties by giving instructions through the NodeSwap Site (each such transaction is a " Masternodes Transaction").
4.2. Masternodes Transactions. We will process Masternodes Transactions in accordance with the instructions we receive from you. You should verify all transaction information prior to submitting instructions to us. We do not guarantee the identity of any user, receiver, requestee or other party. Masternodes Transactions cannot be reversed once they have been broadcast to the relevant Masternodes network.
If you initiate a Masternodes Transaction by entering the recipient's email address and the recipient does not have an existing NodeSwap Account, we will invite the recipient to open a NodeSwap Account. If the recipient does not open a NodeSwap Account within 30 days, we will return the relevant Masternodes to your Masternodes Wallet.
Once submitted to a Masternodes network, a Masternodes Transaction will be unconfirmed for a period of time pending sufficient confirmation of the transaction by the Masternodes network. A Masternodes Transaction is not complete while it is in a pending state. Masternodes associated with Masternodes Transactions that are in a pending state will be designated accordingly, and will not be included in your Masternodes Wallet balance or be available to conduct Masternodes Transactions.
We may charge network fees (miner fees) to process a Masternodes Transaction on your behalf. We will calculate the network fee in its discretion, although we will always notify you of the network fee at or before the time you authorise the Masternodes Transaction. A full list of NodeSwap Pte's fees can be found on our Pricing and Fees Disclosures page.
We may refuse to process or cancel any pending Masternodes Transaction as required by law or any court or other authority to which NodeSwap is subject in any jurisdiction.
4.3. Supported Masternodes. Our Masternodes Services are available only in connection with those Masternodes that NodeSwap supports, and this may change from time to time. Under no circumstances should you attempt to use your Masternodes Wallet to store, send, request, or receive Masternodes in any form that we do not support (although we will use reasonable efforts to help you move or sell Masternodes that we no longer support). We assume no responsibility or liability in connection with any attempt to use your Masternodes Wallet for Masternodes that we do not support.
If you have any questions about which Masternodes we currently support, please visit https://support.nodeswap.io.
4.4. Masternodes Storage & Transmission Delays. We securely store Masternodes private keys, which are the means by which you can securely approve a Masternodes Transaction. We securely store private keys in our control in a combination of online and offline storage. As a result, it may be necessary for us to retrieve certain information from offline storage in order to facilitate a Masternodes Transaction in accordance with your instructions, and you acknowledge that this may delay the initiation or crediting of such Masternodes Transaction.
4.5. Third Party Payments. We have 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 NodeSwap Masternodes Services). We are not responsible for ensuring that a third party buyer or a seller you transact with will complete the transaction or is authorised to do so. If you experience a problem with any goods or services purchased from, or sold to, a third party using Masternodes transferred using the NodeSwap Masternodes Services, or if you have a dispute with such third party, you should resolve the dispute directly with that 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 NodeSwap Support at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may consider what action to take, if any.
4.6. NodeSwap Vaults. You may elect to use the NodeSwap Vault to store Masternodes and to set withdrawal time-delays.
If you are an existing Multisig Vault customer, we may offer you the option to view, control, and distribute Masternodes private keys to multiple third parties whose majority approval will be required to transfer associated Masternodes. We cannot restore encrypted private keys or otherwise recover private keys which have been distributed and are not within our control. If you use the Multisig Vault you acknowledge that we are not responsible for transferring, safeguarding, or maintaining private keys and/or Masternodes associated with the Vault. If you and/or your co-signing authorities lose, mishandle, or have stolen associated Masternodes private keys, or if your co-signers refuse to provide requisite authority, you acknowledge that you may not be able to recover associated Masternodes, and that we are not responsible for such loss.
4.7 Advanced Protocols. Unless specifically announced on the NodeSwap Site or other official public statement of NodeSwap, we do not support metacoins, coloured coins, side chains, or other derivative, enhanced, or forked protocols, tokens, or coins which supplement or interact with a Masternodes we support (collectively, " Advanced Protocols"). You should not use your NodeSwap Account or NodeSwap Pro account to attempt to receive, request, send, store, or engage in any other type of transaction involving an Advanced Protocol. Our platform is not configured to detect and/or secure Advanced Protocol transactions. You acknowledge and agree that we have no responsibility whatsoever in respect of an unsupported Advanced Protocol.
4.8. Operation of Masternodes Protocols. We do not own or control the underlying software protocols which govern the operation of Masternodes supported on our platform: generally, the underlying protocols are open source and anyone can use, copy, modify, and distribute them. We assume no responsibility for the operation of the underlying protocols and we are not able to guarantee their functionality, security, or availability.
You acknowledge and accept the risk that underlying software protocols relating to any Masternodes you store in your Masternodes Wallet may change.
In particular, the underlying protocols are likely to be subject to sudden changes in operating rules (" forks"), and such forks may materially affect the value, function, and/or the name of the Masternodes you store in your Masternodes Wallet. Where possible, we may provide you with notices or alerts on forks in accordance with Section 11.11 ( Contact Information) below and you must read such notices or alerts received from us in order that you may consider how to deal with upcoming forks. However, it is your responsibility to make yourself aware of, and consider how to deal with, upcoming forks. In the event of a fork, there is a risk that we may need to temporarily suspend operations in relation to that fork without providing advance notice to you. We may, in our reasonable discretion, decline to support either or both branches of a fork.
You acknowledge the risks presented by forks and you accept that we have no responsibility to assist you to move or sell an unsupported branch of a forked protocol.

11.3. Third-Party Applications. In order to access NodeSwap Services users are required to provide an email address and create a password. NodeSwap offers second factor authentication via a user's mobile device (Short Message Service, SMS, or a supported Time-based One Time Password, TOTP, application). A verified phone number is required to enable second factor authentication via SMS. Users are responsible for keeping electronic devices through which NodeSwap Services is accessed safe and maintaining adequate security and control of any and all security details that are used to access the NodeSwap Services. This includes taking all reasonable steps to avoid the loss, theft or misuse of said electronic devices and ensuring that said electronic devices are password protected.

Users must keep security details safe at all times. For example, passwords and TOTP authentication seeds be safeguarded and not shared or made visible to others.
