1.1. What these terms cover. These are the terms and conditions on which we supply products or services to you, whether these are services or any form of digital content made available for the purposes of using ETN tokens. You must also comply with the “Best Practice” guidance set out on our website (as amended from time to time).
1.2. What these terms do not cover. These terms and conditions do not cover:
1.2.1. ETN tokens themselves or their use other than in connection with the Services and the Digital Content; or
1.2.2. Your use of Electroneum’s website (including the services and/or tools made available through it, including the offline wallet generator).
1.3. Why you should read them. Please read these terms carefully before you use any Services or the Digital Content. These terms tell you who we are, how the Services or the Digital Content wil be made available to you, how you and we may change or end the contract and other important information.
2. Information about ETN
2.1. What is ETN? Electroneum has created a cryptocurrency called “ETN”:
2.1.1. ETN is a type of cryptoasset, a cryptographically stored representation of value which uses distributed ledger technology and which can be transferred, stored or traded electronically.
2.1.2. More specifically, ETN is an exchange token: it is not issued or backed by any central authority and is intended to function as method of payment or making charitable donation.
2.1.3. ETN tokens do not provide their holders with particular interests in any business, nor do they provide rights such as asset ownership, repayment of a specific sum of money or entitlement to a share in future profits.
2.1.4. Other than insofar as they can be used as a means of exchange or making charitable donation, ETN tokens are not redeemable for access to any specific goods or services.
2.1.5. ETN tokens do not represent tangible or physical assets that exist outside of the ETN blockchain.
3. By using the Services or the Digital Content you accept these terms
3.1. By using the Services or the Digital Content, you confirm that you accept these terms and that you agree to comply with them. If you do not agree to these terms, you must not use the Services or the Digital Content.
3.2. You accept and acknowledge that where additional functionality is made available to you through the ETN App (for example the purchase of third party goods, services or digital content) additional terms and/or charges shall also apply, including terms required by third party providers or their agents. It is a condition of your use of such functionality that you read and accept such third party terms and/or charges and you acknowledge that we have no liability to you in respect of such third party goods, services or digital content which are only made available to you through the ETN App for convenience.
4. Anti money-laundering and terrorist financing
4.1. Pursuant to our obligations under global anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing legislation, we are required to undertake due diligence, source of funds and “know your client” checks on users of the Services and the Digital Content. We may use third party providers to assist us with these due diligence checks.
4.2. We will employ various levels of due diligence as may be required by legislation in force from time to time and relevant to the jurisdiction(s) in which you are domiciled and/or access the Services and the Digital Content and on the value of ETN you propose to hold or transfer.
4.3. The limits which affect the levels of due diligence that must be performed are set out in the table below. Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 relate to the levels of due diligence and the types of information ETN-CWP may request from you, with Tier 1 requiring only basic information (such as email address and telephone number) and Tier 3 requiring full due diligence. The values of Balance Limit A, Balance Limit B and Balance Limit C, and the types of information ETN-CWP require from you in respect of Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 can be found on the website. We may amend this table from time to time and we will notify you when we do.
|Value of current balance of ETN in your ETN Online Wallet or Offline Wallets plus the cumulative value received by you in the preceding 3 months.||Tier 1||Tier 2||Tier 3|
|Balance Limit A||X|
|Balance Limit B||X||X|
|Balance Limit C||X||X||X|
4.4. If you wish to access certain functionality within the Services, and/or the Digital Content or our network, or where the ETN balance held in your ETN Online Wallet or Offline Wallets falls within the limits in the table set out in clause 4.3, ETN-CWP may require additional disclosures of information from you. The information ETN-CWP request may include personal information, including, but not limited to, your name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number, date of birth, country of origin, tax identification number, government issues identification number, and bank account information and in certain circumstances proof of source of funds.
4.5. You must comply with ETN-CWP’s due diligence requirements in order to continue using the Services and the Digital Content. If you fail to do so we may temporarily or permanently, suspend or withdraw your right to use the Services or the Digital Content without further liability to you.
5. HIGH RISK COUNTRIES AND/OR NATIONAL PROHIBITIONS
5.1. If it appears that you are accessing or attempting to access the Services and Digital Content from a country which is, from time to time, designated as a “high-risk third country” by the European Commission or as a “high risk and other monitored jurisdiction” by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), we may temporarily or permanently suspend or withdraw your right to use the Services and Digital Content (or any part of them) without liability to you.
5.2. We may also temporarily or permanently, suspend or withdraw your right to use the Services and Digital Content (or any part of them) at any time, without liability to you, if there are any national prohibitions or restrictions in any jurisdiction relevant to you, which we consider apply to you or us.
5.3 We do not warrant, represent or guarantee that your use of ETN tokens, the Services and/or the Digital Content is legal, appropriate for use or available in your territory. You are responsible for ascertaining and monitoring the legal status of ETN tokens, the Services and/or the Digital Content in your territory and you do this at your own risk.
6. ETN and blockchain technology
6.1. ETN is a type of cryptoasset, more particularly described in clause 2.1 above
6.2. The ETN blockchain is a public ledger of transactions and when you transact with third parties using ETN (or otherwise transfer ETN), users of the ETN blockchain independently verify the validity of your transactions.
6.2.1 In engaging in transactions using ETN the data relating to your transactions, including your public key, is shared with each user of the ETN blockchain.
6.2.2 For every transaction that uses the ETN blockchain, the source and destination ETN address(es) are publicly visible in unencrypted format, alongside the nominal amounts sent and received by those addresses.
6.2.3 It will be possible for anyone to look up the sum total of ETN both sent and received by any ETN address in transactions that have been confirmed through the ETN blockchain.
6.3. We do not control the ongoing state and/or speed of ETN’s blockchain as this is determined by the transactions made between users. The processing of these transactions may be facilitated using the Services and/or the Digital Content, however we are in no way a party to or responsible for any such transactions.
6.4. The ETN Network (or any member of it) does not store, sell, send or receive ETN on behalf of users. The Services facilitate the sending and receiving of ETN between users. The ETN Network is not responsible (and shall have no liability to you) for issues including (but not limited to) slow network speeds and technical errors within the operation of the ETN blockchain or any node run or maintained as part of the ETN blockchain infrastructure.
7. ETN transactions
7.1. Due to the nature of the ETN blockchain, ETN transactions cannot be reversed or cancelled. We will not be responsible for any loss or damage suffered by you for transactions executed by you or any third party including (but not limited to):
7.1.1. sending ETN to the incorrect recipient;
7.1.2. sending a recipient the incorrect amount of ETN in respect of any transaction;
7.1.3. failing to include a payment ID with a transaction;
7.1.4. the time taken to transmit or receive ETN (because the speed and operation of the network is outside of our control); or
7.1.5. any other error.
7.2. Where you avail yourself of additional functionality as set out in 3.2 above, for example the purchase of third party goods, services or digital content, you irrevocably instruct us to send and receive transfers of ETN through your ETN Online Wallet on your behalf for the purposes of meeting your obligations under those transactions and you acknowledge and accept that we have no liability to you in respect of such transactions (including without limitation where you suffer loss or damage as a result of any act or omission by a third party agent and/or provider of goods, services or digital content) and that you are primarily responsible for any additional terms and/or charges imposed by such third party agents and/or providers of goods, services or digital content and you shall hold us harmless in respect of the same.
8. Transaction (TX) Fees
8.1. Please note that ETN-CWP may apply the TX Fees set out below to any transfer (including the import of ETN from any offline wallet to any ETN Online Wallet) of ETN, regardless of whether:
8.1.1. the wallet was developed by us;
8.1.2. whether the wallet is an online wallet, an offline wallet or any other type of wallet; or
8.1.3. whether the sending and receiving wallets are controlled by the same or different users.
8.2. Each transfer of ETN is subject to a TX Fee which is set at a minimum of 0.1 ETN (“Minimum TX Fee”). The TX Fee is based on many factors including the number of blockchain inputs, speed of desired TX on the ETN blockchain and the number of splits required to create a TX of the required size.
8.3. To cover the TX Fee, ETN-CWP will deduct an “Automatic Handling Fee” from the sending user’s wallet when the sender initiates a transfer. ETN-CWP will then refund any unused part of the Automatic Handling Fee once it has calculated the TX Fee and the receiving user confirms that it has received the transferred ETN.
8.4. The Automatic Handling Fee is currently 5 ETN. ETN-CWP may change the Minimum TX Fee or the Automatic Handling Fee at any time and will communicate changes to users via Electroneum’s and/or ETN-CWP’s website before doing so.
8.5. Transfers of ETN will be subject to the sending user having sufficient funds in their wallet to meet the Automatic Handling Fee in addition to the amount of ETN you wish to transfer.
9. Minimum withdrawal limit
Although some cryptocurrency exchanges may support trading prices up to 6 decimal places, the Services and the Digital Content do not permit you to withdraw or transfer less than 0.01 ETN in any single transaction. This is subject also to the Automatic Handling Fee and Minimum TX Fee set out in clause 8.
10. Instant payment system
10.1. “Instant Payment System” is a payment mechanism through the ETN App which enables you to transfer ETN from your ETN Online Wallet to another user’s ETN Online Wallet and you will be notified instantly that the transfer will take place (“Instant Payment”). The Instant Payment System can only be used between ETN Online Wallets developed by Electroneum and operated by ETN-CWP and cannot be used when transferring ETN to an offline wallet or to a third party wallet (e.g. to an exchange).
10.2. To make an Instant Payment, the intended recipient of the ETN must use the ETN App to display a QR Code which identifies the recipients ETN Online Wallet and the amount of ETN to be transferred. When the sender scans the QR Code using the ETN App they will be asked to confirm they want to proceed with the transfer. Confirmation by the sender that they want to proceed with the transfer is their irrevocable instruction and confirmation and acceptance to us by the sender and recipient that:
10.2.1. the sender’s ETN Online Wallet can be automatically checked to confirm there is sufficient ETN in the ETN Online Wallet;
10.2.2. the amount of ETN to be transferred by the sender will be locked meaning the sender will be unable to reverse or cancel the transfer; and
10.2.3. the sending of the ETN can be initiated.
10.3. If the sender does not have sufficient ETN in their ETN Online Wallet (see clause 8), the Instant Payment will fail.
10.4. The Instant Payment System does not facilitate the instant transfer of ETN. Instead, it is an irrevocable notification that the transaction will ultimately be submitted to the blockchain.
10.5. When you make an Instant Payment, your email address will be shared with the recipient of the ETN to facilitate the payment and to help the recipient to resolve any potential disputes.
10.6. If you are a vendor, whether you are using the Instant Payment System to receive payment in return for goods and/or services offered by you or accepting ETN in any other way, you agree to make available (and keep up-to-date) from time to time certain details about your business which will be listed in an information directory created and maintained by us (Vendor Directory) and promoted (at our discretion) under the “ETN Everywhere” brand (or as we otherwise determine from time to time).
10.7. We have no liability to the sender or the recipient using the Instant Payment functionality.
10.8. Each Instant Payment is subject to the payment of a transfer fee in addition to the fees set out in clause 8 above.
11. Trading considerations
11.1. ETN is traded on cryptocurrency exchanges worldwide. We do not trade ETN; ETN-CWP make tools available by which ETN may be sent and received as between users.
11.2. There are many factors that you should consider before trading ETN, for example the prospects of price fluctuation, risk to your capital and market illiquidity. Past performance is not an indication of future performance and the value of ETN may go down as well as up.
11.3. Your use of ETN on a cryptocurrency exchange will be subject to that exchange’s terms of service, which is out of our control.
11.4. Although ETN is listed on several cryptocurrency exchanges, we are in no way affiliated with any exchange.
