Funding your account
Before buying Bitcoins on our platform, you need to fund your account using one of the methods identified in the Services. You must be the owner and fully control the external account that you use to fund your VERIPHI account.
You are solely responsible for your use of any external account, and you agree to comply with all terms and conditions applicable to such external account. You may be charged fees by an external account you use to fund your VERIPHI Account. We are not responsible for any external account fees.
We use an external payment processor for fund transfers and exchange account management. We are not responsible for the amount of time it may take the external account to fund your VERIPHI account or if it is unable to fund the latter.
Canadian dollar funds held in your VERIPHI account are exclusively for the purchase of Bitcoin. Be advised that we do not pay interest on Canadian dollar balances held in your account.
When placing a Bitcoin purchase order, you agree that we are not acting as your broker, intermediary, agent, advisor or fiduciary. No communication or information that we provide to you shall be considered or interpreted as advice.
Any order placed with your account and confirmed by VERIPHI shall be final and is not refundable. You may only cancel an order initiated via the Services if such cancellation occurs before we execute the order. Once your order has been executed, you may not change, withdraw or cancel it. An order is irreversible once executed.
A detailed confirmation of your order will be made available to you via the Services. You agree that the absence of such confirmation shall not invalidate the terms of the order.
If you place a Bitcoin purchase order at the market rate indicated on our Site, we will attempt to execute the order at or close to this rate. You agree that this rate may differ from prevailing exchange rates made available via other sources or websites. Due to Bitcoin's market volatility, the actual market rate at which a market order is executed may be different from the rate indicated via our Services at the time of your order.
If you have insufficient funds in your VERIPHI account to complete an order via the Services, we may cancel the entire order or fulfill your order partially using the funds currently available in your account.
We may, at any time and in our sole discretion, without prior notice, refuse any order submitted, impose limits or any other condition or restriction on the orders permitted via the Services.
We do not charge fees in relation to your account or Bitcoin purchase activities. We profit from the small difference between the price we buy and sell Bitcoin.
You acknowledge that buying and selling Bitcoins may give rise to applicable taxes, including taxes on gains or losses. You are solely responsible for determining if any taxes apply to your orders and for calculating and reporting your gains and losses, as required by law to the appropriate authorities. You agree that we are not responsible for determining whether taxes apply to your orders or for collecting, reporting, withholding or remitting any taxes related to your orders.
