References in this Agreement to "Frontnode", "we", "our" or "us" are to Frontnode.com, and references to "you" or "your" are to the person with whom Frontnode enters into this Agreement.
You should be aware that the risk of loss in trading or holding Digital Currencies can be substantial. Digital Currency Services are not currently regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority or any other regulator. You should therefore carefully consider whether trading or holding Digital Currencies is suitable for you in light of your financial condition.
1.1. Eligibility. To be eligible to use the Frontnode Services, you must be at least 18 years old.
Your eligibility to access certain Frontnode Services also depends on the country in which you reside.
1.2. Digital Currency Services. The following services (the "Digital Currency Services") are provided to you by Frontnode.com:
1.3. Fees: A full list of Frontnode.com’s fees can be found on Pricing and Fees Disclosures page.
2.2. Identity Verification. 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 Frontnode Services and your access to one or more Frontnode Services, and the limits that apply to your use of the Frontnode 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). In providing us with this or any other information that may be required, you confirm that the information is accurate and authentic. You agree to keep us updated if any of the information you provide changes. 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. When we carry out these inquiries, you acknowledge and agree that your personal information may be disclosed to credit reference and fraud prevention or financial crime agencies and that these agencies may respond to our inquiries in full. Additionally, we may require you to wait some amount of time after completion of a transaction, before permitting you to use further Frontnode Services and/or before permitting you to engage in transactions beyond certain volume limits. This includes authorizing your wireless operator (any branded wireless operator) to use your mobile number, name, address, email, network status, customer type, customer role, billing type, mobile device identifiers (IMSI and IMEI) and other subscriber status details, if available, solely to allow verification of your identity and to compare information you have provided to Frontnode.com with your wireless operator account profile information for the duration of the business relationship. Frontnode employs a rigorous customer screening process, including checking customer PEP (Politically Exposed Person) and sanction list status. This is done through internal procedures and via external third party suppliers. Such checks may be performed upon registration and at periodical intervals thereafter. If you do not hold any fiat or crypto balance with Frontnode, or you choose to close your account, customer screening checks will cease. All actions mentioned above may be performed manually or automatically, depending on the specific verification requirement, as determined by Frontnode.
2.3 Access. To access the Frontnode Services, you must have the necessary equipment (such as a smartphone or tablet) and the associated telecommunication service subscriptions to access the Internet. The Frontnode Services can be accessed directly using the Frontnode Site (“Frontnode.com”).
3.1. Purchase of Digital Currency. To purchase Digital Currency, you must follow the relevant instructions on the Frontnode.com Site. A purchase of Digital Currency should occur on the business day we receive your instructions.
3.2. Receipt of instructions. If we receive instructions from you to purchase Digital Currency on a non-business day or after 4:30 pm (Central European Time GMT +1) on a business day, we may treat those instructions as if they were received by us on the following business day.
3.3 Account Information. You will be able to see your Wallet balance and your transaction history using the Frontnode.com Site, including (i) the amount (and currency) of each Digital Currency 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 Digital Currency Purchase (as appropriate).
3.4. Redeeming crypto currencies. You may redeem all or part of any crypto currencies held in your Wallet at any time by selecting the relevant option in the Frontnode.com Site and following the instructions. Unless agreed otherwise, funds will be transferred to the bank account you have registered with us.
If this Agreement is terminated, we will redeem any funds remaining in your Frontnode Wallet and transfer funds to the bank account you have registered with us.
Prior to redeeming funds from your 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 funds.
3.5. Unauthorised and Incorrect Transactions. Where a purchase, sale or transfer of Digital Currency 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. It is important that you regularly check your 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.
3.6. Refund rights. If an unauthorised transaction occurs, we will refund you the amount of that transaction within one business day and restore your 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 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 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 Wallet without prior notice to you.
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 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.
3.7. Appointment of Regulated Third Parties. You may appoint appropriately regulated third parties to access your 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 Wallet.
3.8. 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 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 Digital Currency Wallet enables you to buy and sell, and send Digital Currency to, and request, receive, and store Digital Currency from, third parties by giving instructions through the Frontnode.com Site (each such transaction is a "Digital Currency Transaction").
4.2. Digital Currency Transactions. We will process Digital Currency 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. Digital Currency Transactions cannot be reversed once they have been broadcast to the relevant Digital Currency network.
If you initiate a Digital Currency Transaction by entering the recipient's email address and the recipient does not have an existing Frontnode.com Account, we will invite the recipient to open a Frontnode.com Account. If the recipient does not open a Frontnode.com Account within 30 days, we will return the relevant Digital Currency to your Digital Currency Wallet.
Once submitted to a Digital Currency network, a Digital Currency Transaction will be unconfirmed for a period of time pending sufficient confirmation of the transaction by the Digital Currency network. A Digital Currency Transaction is not complete while it is in a pending state. Digital Currency associated with Digital Currency Transactions that are in a pending state will be designated accordingly, and will not be included in your Digital Currency Wallet balance or be available to conduct Digital Currency Transactions.
We may charge network fees (miner fees) to process a Digital Currency 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 Digital Currency Transaction. A full list of Frontnode.com's fees can be found on our Pricing and Fees Disclosures page.
We may refuse to process or cancel any pending Digital Currency Transaction as required by law or any court or other authority to which Frontnode.com is subject in any jurisdiction.
4.3. Supported Digital Currencies. Our Digital Currency Services are available only in connection with those digital currencies that Frontnode supports, and this may change from time to time. Under no circumstances should you attempt to use your Digital Currency Wallet to store, send, request, or receive digital currencies in any form that we do not support (although we will use reasonable efforts to help you move or sell Digital Currency that we no longer support). We assume no responsibility or liability in connection with any attempt to use your Digital Currency Wallet for digital currencies that we do not support.
4.4. Digital Currency Storage & Transmission Delays. We securely store Digital Currency private keys, which are the means by which you can securely approve a Digital Currency 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 Digital Currency Transaction in accordance with your instructions, and you acknowledge that this may delay the initiation or crediting of such Digital Currency 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 Frontnode Digital Currency 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 Digital Currency transferred using the Frontnode Digital Currency 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 Frontnode.com Support so that we may consider what action to take, if any.
4.6. Frontnode.com Vaults. You may elect to use the Frontnode.com Vault to store Digital Currency and to set withdrawal time-delays.
4.7 Advanced Protocols. Unless specifically announced on the Frontnode.com Site or other official public statement of Frontnode, 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 Digital Currency we support (collectively, "Advanced Protocols"). You should not use your Frontnode.com 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 Digital Currency Protocols. We do not own or control the underlying software protocols which govern the operation of Digital Currencies 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 Digital Currency you store in your Digital Currency 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 Digital Currency you store in your Digital Currency 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.
4.9. Settlement tokens. For security purposes, fee optimization or similar purposes, Frontnode reserves the right to represent purchases and customer ownership of supported Digital Currencies in internal settlement tokens. Such tokens are liquidated upon transferral outside of the Frontnode platform.
5.2. Transactions. You may purchase supported Digital Currency by using VISA/Mastercard. Although we will attempt to deliver Digital Currency to you as promptly as possible, funds may be debited from your VISA/Mastercard card before Digital Currency is delivered to your Digital Currency Wallet.
You may sell Digital Currency in exchange for funds. You authorise us to credit your VISA/Mastercard card or corresponding Bank Account with the relevant amount of funds.
5.3. Transaction Fulfilment. We will make best efforts to fulfil all purchases of Digital Currency, but in some circumstance we may be unable to. If this is the case, we will notify you and seek your approval to re-attempt the purchase at the current Exchange Rate (as defined below).
5.4. Availability of Payment Methods. The availability of a method of payment depends on a number of factors including, for example, where you are located, the identification information you have provided to us, and limitations imposed by third party payment processors.
5.5. Conversion Fees. Each purchase or sale of Digital Currency is subject to a fee (a "Conversion Fee"). The applicable Conversion Fee will be displayed to you on the Frontnode.com Site prior to each transaction and is stated in each receipt we issue to you. We may adjust our Conversion Fees at any time. We will not process a transaction if the Conversion Fee and any other associated fees would, together, exceed the value of your transaction. A full list of Frontnode.com's fees can be found on our Pricing and Fees Disclosures page.
5.6. Exchange Rates. Each purchase or sale of Digital Currency is also subject to the Frontnode.com "Exchange Rate" for the given transaction. The "Exchange Rate" means the price of a given supported Digital Currency in central bank issued currency as quoted on the Frontnode.com Site. The Exchange Rate is stated either as a "Buy Price" or as a "Sell Price", which is the price at which you may buy or sell Digital Currency, respectively. You acknowledge that the Buy Price Exchange Rate may not be the same as the Sell Price Exchange Rate at any given time, and that we may add a margin or "spread" to the quoted Exchange Rate. You agree to accept the Exchange Rate when you authorise a transaction. You can learn more about Frontnode.com's Exchange Rates on our Pricing and Fees Disclosures page.
We do not guarantee the availability of any Exchange Rate. We do not guarantee that you will be able to buy and / or sell your Digital Currency on the open market at any particular price or time.
5.7. Authorisations; Reversals; Cancellations. By clicking the "Buy" or "Sell" button on the Frontnode.com Site, you are authorising Frontnode to initiate the transaction at the quoted Buy Price or Sell Price and agree to any associated Conversion and Exchange Fees. 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 authorise us, in our sole discretion, either to cancel the transaction or to debit your other payment methods, including balances on your Wallet and/or Digital Currency Wallets, 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, insufficient funds, or similar fees charged by your payment provider.
6.1. Transactions Limits. The use of all Frontnode.com Services is subject to a limit on the amount of volume you may transact or transfer in a given period (e.g., daily).
6.2 Enhanced Due Diligence. We may require you to submit additional information about yourself or your business, provide records, and arrange for meetings with Frontnode staff (such process, "Enhanced Due Diligence"). This may include requesting a scanned copy of your debit or credit card, or passport, as applicable. We will make this request when you have purchased more than 5.000 EUR per day, or 50.000 EUR per month. We reserve the right to charge you costs and fees associated with such Enhanced Due Diligence although if we intend to do so, we will notify you in advance. In our discretion, we may refuse to raise your limits or we may lower your limits at a subsequent time even if you have completed Enhanced Due Diligence.
7.1 Suspension, Termination, and Cancellation. We may: (a) refuse to complete or block, cancel or reverse a transaction you have authorised (b) suspend, restrict, or terminate your access to any or all of the Frontnode Services, and/or (c) deactivate or cancel your Frontnode Account with immediate effect for any reason, including but not limited to where:
We may also refuse to complete a transaction you have authorised where there is insufficient funds to cover the transaction and (where applicable) associated fees at the time that we receive notification of the transaction.
If we refuse to complete a transaction and / or suspend or close your Frontnode.com Account, or terminate your use of Frontnode.com Services in this way, we will (unless it would be unlawful for us to do so) provide you with notice of our actions and the reasons for refusal, suspension or closure and where appropriate, with the procedure for correcting any factual errors that led to the refusal, suspension or closure. In the event that we refuse to complete a transaction and / or suspend your Frontnode.com Account we will lift the suspension as soon as reasonably practicable once the reasons for refusal and / or suspension no longer exist. However, we are under no obligation to allow you to reinstate a transaction at the same price or on the same terms as the suspended, reversed or cancelled transaction.
We may suspend, restrict, or terminate your access to any or all of the Frontnode.com Services and/or deactivate or cancel your Frontnode.com Account, without reason by giving you two months notice. You acknowledge that our decision to take certain actions, including limiting access to, suspending, or closing your Frontnode.com Account, may be based on confidential criteria that are essential to our risk management and security protocols. You agree that we are under no obligation to disclose the details of its risk management and security procedures to you.
On termination of this Agreement, unless prohibited by applicable law or by any court or other order to which Frontnode.com is subject in any jurisdiction, you may:
