By accepting these terms or using the Apifiny Services, you understand and acknowledge that the Apifiny Services are being provided as a “ALPHA” version and made available on an “AS IS” or “AS AVAILABLE” basis. The Apifiny Services may contain bugs, errors, and other problems. Apifiny strongly recommends that you back up all data and information prior to using the Apifiny Services and utilize “cold storage” for your Digital Assets. YOU ASSUME ALL RISKS AND ALL COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR USE OF THE APIFINY SERVICES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY AND ALL LOSSES INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION TRADING LOSSES, ANY INTERNET ACCESS FEES, BACK-UP EXPENSES, COSTS INCURRED FOR THE USE OF YOUR DEVICE AND PERIPHERALS, AND ANY DAMAGE TO ANY EQUIPMENT, SOFTWARE, INFORMATION OR DATA.

1.4 Digital Asset Risks. The risks of loss in trading or holding any Digital Asset can be immediate, substantial and irreversible. There is no guarantee against losses from using the Apifiny Services. You should therefore carefully consider whether trading or holding any Digital Asset is suitable for you in light of your financial condition and needs. The following are some risks associated with Digital Assets. However, these descriptions are non-exclusive and do not disclose all such risks. Please consider these and other risks carefully before using the Apifiny Services.
1.5 Feedback. The Apifiny Services are made available to you for purposes of evaluation and feedback. You acknowledge the importance of communication between Apifiny and you during your use of the Apifiny Services and hereby agree to receive related correspondence and updates from Apifiny.

During the use of Apifiny Services, you may be asked to provide feedback regarding your use of the Apifiny Services. You acknowledge that Apifiny owns any feedback provided, and you hereby grant to Apifiny, if for any reason it is further needed, a perpetual, non-revocable, royalty-free worldwide license to use and/or incorporate such feedback into any Apifiny product or service (including the Apifiny Services) at any time at the sole discretion of Apifiny. Apifiny will not publish feedback in a way that is attributable to you without your consent.

Apifiny reserves the right to modify or impose any limitations on the use of the Apifiny Services at any time, with or without notice to you, and certain functionality may not be available at any time.
2. Creating an Apifiny Account.
2.1 Registration of Apifiny Account. To use the Apifiny Services, you will need to register for an Apifiny Account. During the registration process, we will ask you for information, including your name and other personal information to verify your identity. We may, in our sole discretion, refuse to open an Apifiny Account for you, or suspend, revoke or terminate your account after opening.
2.2 Identity Verification. During registration of your Apifiny Account, 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 for a minimum of five years. You will need to complete certain verification procedures before you are permitted to use certain Apifiny Services. Your access to one or more Apifiny Services, and the limits that apply to your use of the Apifiny Services, may be altered as a result of information collected about you. 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, a government identification, and information regarding your bank account (such as the name of the bank, the account type, routing number, and account number). You hereby explicitly consent to the Apifiny sharing such information with its affiliates, subsidiaries, parent companies, which may be in jurisdictions other than Australia, Singapore and the United States. You hereby explicitly consent to Apifiny transmitting such information to such other jurisdictions. In providing us with this or any other information that may be required, you confirm that the information is accurate, authentic and complete. You agree to keep us updated if any of the information you provide changes. You authorize us to make inquiries, whether directly or through third parties, that we consider necessary to verify your identity, to protect you and/or us against fraud or other financial crime, to comply with anti-money laundering and other legal requirements, 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.
3. Digital Asset Wallet.
3.1 In General. Upon verification of your identity, you will have the ability to transfer, track and store supported Digital Assets and the ability to transfer, track, and trade supported Digital Assets by giving instructions through the Apifiny Sites or via Apifiny’s API (each such transaction, a “Digital Asset Transaction”, and any instruction to buy, sell, or otherwise trade a supported Digital Asset, an “Order”).
Apifiny cannot reverse a Digital Asset Transaction which has been broadcast to a Digital Asset network. The Digital Asset Wallet services are available only in connection with those Digital Assets that Apifiny, in its sole discretion, decides to support. The Digital Assets that Apifiny supports may change from time to time without notice to you. Under no circumstances should you attempt to use your Digital Asset Wallet services to transfer or store Digital Assets in any form that is not supported by Apifiny. Apifiny assumes no responsibility or liability in connection with any attempt to use Apifiny Services for Digital Assets that Apifiny does not support.
You assume full responsibility and liability for any loss resulting from intentional or unintentional misuse of your Digital Asset Wallet services, including, without limitation, any loss resulting from depositing one type of Digital Asset to a wallet intended for another type of Digital Asset, regardless of whether the relevant Digital Asset network confirms the applicable Digital Asset Transaction or not. Apifiny assumes no responsibility or liability in connection with any such misuse.
YOUR APIFINY ACCOUNT AND ANY OTHER ACCOUNT YOU MAY HAVE WITH US (AND ANY DIGITAL ASSETS HELD IN SUCH ACCOUNT) IS NOT A BANK ACCOUNT OR A DEPOSIT ACCOUNT. OUR SERVICES ARE NOT FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS. NO INTEREST WILL BE PAID ON ANY DIGITAL ASSETS YOU USE TO PURCHASE OR TRADE FOR ANY OTHER CRYPTO ASSETS (OR ANY OTHER THING) WITH OTHER USERS, AND ALL DIGITAL ASSETS DIRECTLY HELD BY US ARE NOT INSURED BY US OR ANY GOVERNMENT AGENCY.
3.2 Digital Asset Storage & Transmission Delays. Apifiny securely stores all Digital Asset private keys in our control in a combination of online and offline storage. As a result, it may be necessary for Apifiny to retrieve certain information from offline storage in order to facilitate a Digital Asset Transaction in accordance with your instructions, which may delay the initiation or crediting of such Digital Asset Transaction for 48 hours or more. You acknowledge and agree that a Digital Asset Transaction facilitated by Apifiny may be delayed.
3.3 Third Party Payments. Apifiny 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 Apifiny Services). Apifiny is not responsible for ensuring that a buyer or a seller you may transact 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 Digital Assets transferred using the Apifiny Services, or if you have a dispute with such third party, you must resolve the dispute directly with that third party.
3.4 Modified Protocols. Unless specifically announced on the Apifiny Sites or through some other official public statement of Apifiny, 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 Asset supported by Apifiny (collectively, “Modified Protocols”). Do not use your Apifiny Account to attempt to receive, request, send, store, or engage in any other type of transaction involving a Modified Protocol. The Apifiny platform is not configured to detect and/or secure Modified Protocol transactions and Apifiny assumes absolutely no responsibility whatsoever in respect to Modified Protocols.
3.5 Airdrops. You understand, acknowledge and agree that in the event that a third party or software protocol attempts to or does distribute a Digital Asset, whether or not supported by Apifiny (often known as an “airdrop” or “bootstrap”) to certain wallet addresses, we will treat such airdropped Digital Asset as we would treat any other unsupported Digital Asset. You agree and understand that airdropped Digital Assets do not create a relationship between us and the transferor, sender and/or the related network that created the airdropped Digital Asset, and further, that we are not subject to any obligation as it may relate to the transferor, sender or related network.
3.6 Operation of Digital Asset Protocols. In order to be completed, proposed transactions may need to be confirmed and recorded in associated blockchains. Such networks are decentralized, peer-to-peer networks supported by independent third parties, which we do not own, control, or operate. We therefore cannot and do not ensure that any transaction instructions that you submit via our Services will be confirmed and processed. Apifiny does not own or control any underlying software protocols which govern the operation of Digital Assets supported on our platform. In general, the underlying protocols are open source and anyone can use, copy, modify, and distribute them. By using the Apifiny Services, you acknowledge and agree (i) that Apifiny is not responsible for operation of the underlying protocols and that Apifiny 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 Asset you store in the Apifiny platform. In the event of a fork, you agree that Apifiny may suspend Apifiny operations (with or without advance notice to you) and that Apifiny 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 Apifiny assumes absolutely no responsibility whatsoever in respect of an unsupported branch of a forked protocol.
3.7 Attacks and Other Malicious Activities. Apifiny does not have any ability to prevent or mitigate attacks on any Digital Assets or their underlying protocols and networks. Apifiny reserves the right to take any actions in the event of an attack as determined in its sole discretion, including but not limited to: (i) If Apifiny reasonably believes that a Digital Asset that it supports has been or may be compromised, or is or will be under attack, Apifiny may immediately halt trading, deposits, and withdrawals for such Digital Asset; and (ii) if it is determined that such an attack caused the Digital Asset to greatly decrease in value, Apifiny may discontinue trade activity on such Digital Asset partially or entirely. Apifiny does not have any obligation to engage in any activities in relation to attacks on any Digital Assets or their underlying protocols and networks. Resolutions for an attacked Digital Asset will be determined on a case-by-case basis by Apifiny in its sole discretion. APIFINY MAKES NO REPRESENTATION AND DOES NOT WARRANT THE SAFETY OF THE APIFINY SERVICES AND IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY LOST VALUE OR STOLEN PROPERTY, WHETHER OR NOT APIFINY WAS NEGLIGENT IN PROVIDING THE PROPER SECURITY.
3.8 Fiat currency in your Account. Your Account with us (and any available assets held in such account) is not a bank account or a deposit account. We hold your fiat currency deposits in one or more omnibus bank accounts at U.S. depository institutions or at non-U.S. depository institutions in segregated custodial accounts (each account an “Omnibus Account”). Each Omnibus Account is: (i) in our name and under our control, (ii) separate from our business and operating bank accounts and (iii) established for the benefit of Apifiny customers. Funds held in an Omnibus Account are exclusively for the purchase of Digital Assets or withdrawals. Proceeds from the sale of any Digital Assets will be credited to the appropriate Omnibus Account, less any transactional or other fees. You will not have direct access to any of such assets. You further agree that any assets held in the Omnibus Accounts do not pay interest to you, and that you are not entitled to any income from the holding and maintenance of your funds, if any. In the event a depository institution does pay interest on any amounts in any Omnibus Account, you agree that such interest belongs to Apifiny and hereby authorize Apifiny to deduct such interest from the Omnibus Account. Each Omnibus Account may be established as a non-FDIC insured U.S. bank account or a depository account at a non-U.S. bank subject to local laws. Therefore there may be a risk of loss of these funds associated with solvency of the U.S. bank or the non-U.S. bank holding such funds, or other factors.
4. Marketplace Access and Apifiny Services
4.1. Marketplace Access. Upon verification of your identity, you will have access to the Apifiny’s Marketplace, an exchange platform for Digital Assets, and the ability to transfer, track, and trade supported Digital Assets by giving instructions through the Apifiny Site or via the API (each such transaction, a “Digital Asset Transaction”, and any instruction to buy, sell, or otherwise trade a supported Digital Asset, an “Order”). You acknowledge that Digital Asset Transactions and Orders may be routed to third party exchanges and that Apifiny has no control over such third party exchanges. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT APIFINY HAS NO LIABILITY WHATSOEVER TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY IF ANY DIGITAL ASSET TRANSACTION OR ORDER IS NOT EXECUTED, OR IF SUCH EXECUTION IS DELAYED OR SUBSEQUENTLY CANCELED FOR ANY REASON.
4.2 Apifiny Connect. Eligible users may utilize APIs made available by Apifiny to access Apifiny Connect, a platform that allows users to access various exchanges and preposition their assets at such exchanges. If you utilize Apifiny Connect services, you acknowledge and agree that your assets are held in omnibus accounts at those exchanges and that you will not have any rights to instruct those exchanges with respect to the assets so held. You further acknowledge and agree that transfers to and from any particular exchange are subject to transfer limits that are posted on the Apifiny Sites. Further, all transfers may be delayed and/or canceled, and Apifiny will have no liability whatsoever for any losses or damages that you may suffer due to such delay or cancellation.
4.3 GBBO. In addition to various exchanges provided to users through Apifiny Connect platform, eligible users will have an access to the order book of Apifiny’s own exchange GBBO. You acknowledge that, in executing orders through the GBBO exchange, Apifiny or an Apifiny affiliate will act as your counterparty, meaning it will act as seller when you buy digital assets, and as buyer when you sell digital assets. Apifiny will not be your agent or broker. Apifiny’s role may present a conflict of interest between you and Apifiny. Apifiny may enter into transactions for its own account in digital assets with third parties (such as market makers and liquidity providers), including to hedge its own exposure to transactions with customers (including yourself) and/or manage its inventory of digital assets for customer transactions. Although you will have no direct relationship with these third parties, Apifiny’s transactions with such parties may affect the bid and offer price listed by Apifiny on the GBBO exchange. Apifiny may enter into arrangements with market makers, liquidity providers or other market participants that give Apifiny a financial or other incentive to transact with such persons, for the benefit of Apifiny, which may also affect the bid and offer price listed by Apifiny on the GBBO exchange.
4.4 Market Data. Apifiny compiles and discloses certain market data, including bid prices, ask prices, trading prices and volume etc. You understand, acknowledge and agree that, due to technical and other restrictions, the Digital Asset values displayed on the Apifiny Sites may be delayed and therefore not reflect the current, live market value of such Digital Asset. Nonetheless, you agree that we are not responsible for any adverse consequences that you may experience, or costs that you may incur, arising from any reliance, lapse, failure, outage or error in using such market data.
4.5 Order Books. The Marketplace offers an order book for various Digital Asset trading pairs (each an “Order Book/s”) from various exchanges. Refer to your Apifiny Account to determine which Order Books are available to you. Apifiny reserves the right in its sole discretion to create, modify or terminate any trading pairs that may be available on the Marketplace. For Apifiny Connect users, please note that transferring your assets to a particular exchange, including GBBO, will limit your ability to place Orders on another exchange as you must have sufficient assets at a particular exchange on which you place your Order. Apifiny may provide partial Order Books showing only orders for a particular exchange at your request, and you agree that such partial Order Book may not show all orders for such exchange, may be delayed, and/or be otherwise inaccurate or incomplete. You hereby release Apifiny from any liability for any losses or damages you may incur due to such partial Order Book.
4.6 Orders. You acknowledge and agree that you must have sufficient assets in your Account (whether the supported Digital Assets or the relevant amount of supported fiat currency, “Assets”) of the correct type before you submit any Order for any transaction involving such assets. Such Assets must be readily available and not otherwise encumbered. All Orders must be “fully funded.” You acknowledge and agree that Apifiny may, in its option, immediately deduct, encumber, or otherwise freeze any Assets necessary to complete the Order upon the submission of the Order by you, and before such Order is matched. In the event the Order is subsequently canceled, failed, or not filled, Apifiny shall promptly credit, unencumber, or unfreeze the Assets, as applicable.
For Apifiny Connect users, please note that transferring your Assets to a particular exchange, including GBBO, will limit your ability to place Orders on another exchange. All Orders for a particular exchange must be fully funded by your Assets that you have prepositioned at that particular exchange.
Apifiny reserves the right to refuse to process or to cancel any Order or pending Digital Asset Transaction (a) as reasonably necessary to comply with laws and regulations or in response to a subpoena, court order, or other binding government order or (b) to enforce transaction limits associated with your Account.
You acknowledge and agree that (x) Apifiny has no obligation to provide any credit to you, (y) you shall fully fund each of your transactions before placing an Order, and (z) Apifiny has no liability to you whatsoever for canceling and/or not processing an Order placed by you that is not fully funded.
You should verify all transaction information prior to submitting instructions to Apifiny. Once broadcast to a Digital Asset network, the transaction may be irreversible. A Digital Asset Transaction will be unconfirmed for a period of time pending sufficient confirmation of the transaction by the digital asset network. A transaction is not complete while it is in a pending state. Digital Assets associated with transactions that are in a pending state may not be included in your Account balance or will not be available to conduct other transactions. Apifiny reserves the right to delay or cancel any Digital Asset Transaction if it perceives a risk of fraud or illegal activity. Otherwise, Apifiny may only cancel an Order placed by you after such Order has been matched with another transaction order if the economics of such Digital Asset Transaction would result in a loss to Apifiny or if such Digital Asset Transaction would be significantly off market, as determined by Apifiny in its sole discretion.
Apifiny and its Affiliates may transact through designated accounts on the Marketplace (“Corporate Accounts”), for purposes including but not limited to inventory management for retail sales, corporate digital asset needs such as payroll etc. against the users of Marketplace. To the extent that a Apifiny Corporate Account transacts on the Marketplace, the Apifiny Corporate Account (i) will not have any special priority and will be subject to the same price-time priority described in the Trading Rules, (ii) will trade only on Market Data available to all other users, and (iii) will not access any non-public data of other clients of the Marketplace.
APIFINY IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DISPUTES AMONG OR BETWEEN USERS REGARDING ANY TRANSACTION. APIFINY DOES NOT GUARANTEE THAT ANY ORDER YOU PLACE WILL BE FILLED. ONCE AN ORDER HAS BEEN EXECUTED, THE TRANSACTION MAY NOT BE REVERSIBLE.
4.7 Reporting. During the Alpha test of Apifiny Services, Apifiny may make certain reports available to you. Certain reports will only be made available upon queries submitted by you. such queries may take significant time to run and may be delayed. Some reports are available via display, API and/or drop copy files with a layout specified and documented by Apifiny. Without any notice or liability to you, Apifiny may, in its sole discretion, (a) suspend, cancel, or delay any report at any time and (b) cancel any and all report queries submitted by you. You acknowledge that all reports containing balances and positions (x) represent a snapshot of your balances and positions as of the moment the report is generated, and that subsequent orders, transactions, reversals, and cancellations will affect the positions in such report, and (y) are an aggregation of balances positions across the globe, and as such, delays and stale balances and positions may be included without notice to you. You acknowledge that the Apifiny Services are in Alpha test phase and that all reports may contain incomplete, stale, or other incorrect information, and you hereby waive any and all claims you may have against the Indemnified Parties for any damages or losses that arise from, or are related to, the reporting you receive from Apifiny or your use of any such report.
4.8 Deposits. Subject to compliance with applicable law, this Agreement and Apifiny policies, you may fund your Apifiny Account by depositing a supported Digital Asset from an external Digital Asset address into your Apifiny Account.

You may not sell, lease, furnish or otherwise permit or provide access to your Apifiny Account to any other entity or to any individual that is not your employee or agent. You accept full responsibility for your employees’ or agents’ use of the Marketplace, whether such use is directly through the Marketplace website or by other means, such as those facilitated through API keys, our mobile application, and/or applications which you may authorize. You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for any and all orders, trades, and other instructions entered into the Marketplace including identifiers, permissions, passwords, and security codes associated with your Apifiny Account.

4.15 Suspension and Cancellation. We may suspend your Apifiny Account or your access to any one for more Order Books in accordance with the suspension and termination provisions of this Agreement.
