By signing up to use the RockItCoin Account through the RockItCoin website located at RockItCoin.com or a RockItCoin BTM, and/or any associated RockItCoin-hosted websites or mobile applications (collectively the "RockItCoin Site"), you agree to comply with and be legally bound by this Agreement.

By continuing to access or use the RockItCoin Services once the revised Agreement is effective, you agree to be bound by the Agreement. We may (a) modify or discontinue any portion of the RockItCoin Services, and (b) suspend or terminate your access to the RockItCoin Services, at any time, and from time to time, without notice to you in certain, limited circumstances described herein.

Please note the following risks of using RockItCoin Services:
Your RockItCoin account ("RockItCoin Account") encompasses the following basic RockItCoin Services, among others:
2.1. Registration of RockItCoin Account. In order to use any of the RockItCoin Services, you must first register at a BTM by providing your name, phone number, identity document (if required) and affirming your acceptance of this Agreement. Upon successful completion of the registration process, RockItCoin will establish your RockItCoin Account. RockItCoin may, in our sole discretion, refuse to allow you to establish a RockItCoin Account, or limit the number of RockItCoin Accounts that a single user may establish and maintain at any time.
2.2. Identity Verification. In order to use certain features of the RockItCoin Services, including certain transfers of bitcoin and/or currency, you may be required to provide RockItCoin with certain personal information, including, but not limited to, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, date of birth, taxpayer identification number, and government identification number. RockItCoin may also require you to answer certain questions or take actions in order to verify your identity, provide the RockItCoin Services to you, or comply with applicable law. In submitting this or any other personal information as may be required, you verify that the information is accurate and authentic, and you agree to update RockItCoin if any information changes. You hereby authorize RockItCoin to, directly or through third parties make any inquiries we consider necessary to verify your identity and/or protect against fraud, including to query identity information contained in public reports (e.g., your name, address, past addresses, or date of birth), to query account information associated with your identity (e.g., name or account balance), and to take action we reasonably deem necessary based on the results of such inquiries and reports. You further authorize any and all third parties to which such inquiries or requests may be directed to fully respond to such inquiries or requests.
3.1. Sending and Receiving Bitcoin.
3.1.1. As part of the services offered in connection with your RockItCoin Account, RockItCoin can help you send bitcoin to, and request and receive bitcoin from, third parties pursuant to instructions you provide through the RockItCoin Site (each such transaction is a "Bitcoin Transaction"). You may initiate a Bitcoin Transaction by going to the RockItCoin Site, choosing to send or request, and entering the requisite information regarding the sender or recipient and the amount of bitcoin to be transferred. RockItCoin will then communicate with the Bitcoin network on your behalf, as necessary, to facilitate each Bitcoin Transaction in accordance with these instructions.
3.1.2. RockItCoin reserves the right to refuse to process or to cancel any pending Bitcoin Transaction as required by law or in response to a subpoena, court order, or other binding government order. RockItCoin cannot reverse a Bitcoin Transaction which has been communicated to and confirmed by the Bitcoin network.
3.1.3. RockItCoin processes Bitcoin Transactions according to the instructions received from its users and we do not guarantee the identity of any user, receiver, requestee or other party. You should verify all transaction information prior to submitting instructions to RockItCoin as the relevant Bitcoin Transaction may not be cancelled or reversed once initiated.
3.1.4. If you initiate a Bitcoin Transaction by entering the recipient's bitcoin address, RockItCoin will confirm that the bitcoin address is valid; however, RockItCoin cannot confirm that the bitcoin address belongs to the intended recipient. In the event you initiate a Bitcoin Transaction by entering the recipient's email address and the recipient does not have an existing RockItCoin Account, RockItCoin will email the recipient and invite them to open a RockItCoin Account. If the designated recipient does not open a RockItCoin Account within 30 days, RockItCoin will return the bitcoin associated with the transaction to your RockItCoin Account.
3.2 Bitcoin Storage & Transmission Delays. RockItCoin does not hold any of private keys for its users. As such, you accept the risk that a Bitcoin Transaction facilitated by RockItCoin may be delayed and you agree not to hold RockItCoin responsible for any damages or injury arising out of or related to such delay.
3.3. Your Bitcoin Transactions.
3.3.1 Third Party Transactions. RockItCoin 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 RockItCoin Services). RockItCoin is not responsible for ensuring that a buyer or a seller you are dealing 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 bitcoin transferred using the RockItCoin Services, or if you have a dispute with such third party, you must handle it directly with that third party. Due to the nature of bitcoin, any Bitcoin Transaction conducted using the RockItCoin Services is final regardless of any defects in or non-delivery of any goods or services purchased in connection with such Bitcoin Transaction, or any other aspect of your transaction or relationship with the relevant 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 RockItCoin Support at support@RockItCoin.com so that we may consider whether to take any action.
3.3.2. Refunds. RockItCoin is not responsible for issuing refunds and will only do so on a case-by-case basis. If a refund is issued it may be issued at either the Bitcoin fair market value of the transaction at the time of transfer, or the same Bitcoin amount. As a result, you may receive less (or more) bitcoin via a refund than you initially used to pay the Merchant.
3.3.3. Taxes. It is your sole responsibility to determine whether, and to what extent, any taxes apply to any transactions associated with your receipt or transfer of bitcoin, and/or to the Bitcoin Transactions you conduct through the RockItCoin Services, and to withhold, collect, report and remit the correct amounts of taxes to the appropriate tax authorities. Your transaction history is available through your RockItCoin Account.
3.4 Limits. RockItCoin reserves the right to change the buy/sell, transfer, trading, storage and velocity limits applicable to your Bitcoin Wallet in our sole discretion. We may require you to provide us with information about yourself and/or your Bitcoin Transactions if your transactions exceed certain government reporting thresholds, such as thresholds regarding financial recordkeeping and tax reporting.
4. Conversion Service.
4.1. Transactions with RockItCoin. When buying or selling bitcoin through the Conversion Service, you are buying from, or selling to, RockItCoin directly. In this capacity, RockItCoin does not act as an intermediary or marketplace between other buyers and sellers of bitcoin. The Conversion Service is subject to the RockItCoin "Conversion Rate." "Conversion Rate" means the liquidity adjusted price of a given bitcoin amount in terms of local currency as quoted to you on the RockItCoin Site at the time you begin a Conversion transaction. The Conversion Rate is stated either as a "Buy Price," the price in terms of local currency at which you purchase bitcoin from RockItCoin, or as a "Sell Price," the price in terms of local currency at which you sell bitcoin to RockItCoin. For the purpose of any transaction which incorporates the Conversion Rate, you agree, as a condition of using any RockItCoin Services, to accept the Conversion Rate as the sole conversion metric.
4.2. Bitcoin Purchases. After successfully completing the verification steps described in the Verification Procedures set forth below, you may purchase bitcoin from RockItCoin, subject to applicable limits. If your bitcoin purchase is marked as complete or pending in your Bitcoin Wallet, you cannot cancel, reverse, or change the order, although RockItCoin reserves the right to cancel the order as stated herein. In connection with any purchase of bitcoin from RockItCoin, RockItCoin will use good faith efforts to fulfill such purchase order at the applicable Buy Price Conversion Rate quoted on the RockItCoin Site at the time that you place such order. However, from time to time, it may be necessary for RockItCoin to delay fulfillment of a purchase order until such time as we are able to execute the transaction. In such cases, we will notify you through the RockItCoin Site prior to the completion of your purchase order that the amount of bitcoin that you will receive will be determined based on the applicable Buy Price Conversion Rate quoted on the RockItCoin Site at the subsequent point at which RockItCoin, with your further approval, may execute your transaction.
4.3. Sale Transactions. You may sell bitcoin to RockItCoin, by instructing RockItCoin accordingly at any of its BTM locations. Upon any sale of bitcoin to RockItCoin, all settlements or payments by RockItCoin for such transaction shall be paid in local currency (e.g., US Dollar) at the applicable Sell Price Conversion Rate quoted on the RockItCoin Site at the time that you approved the transaction.
4.4. Limits. RockItCoin imposes limits on the number of bitcoin that you may buy, sell, or trade in a given day, and that you may hold in your Wallet, as further described in the Verification Procedures. RockItCoin reserves the right to change posted limits as we deem necessary or appropriate from time to time. RockItCoin does not guarantee the availability of its Conversion Service, and the act of purchasing bitcoin from RockItCoin does not result in a guarantee that you may sell your bitcoin to RockItCoin. If you wish to raise your limits beyond the highest-posted amounts, you may submit a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. We may require you to submit additional information about yourself or your business, provide records, and arrange for meetings with RockItCoin staff (such process, "Enhanced Due Diligence"). RockItCoin reserves the right to charge you costs and fees associated with Enhanced Due Diligence, provided that we notify you in advance of any such charges accruing. In our sole 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.
4.5. Conversion Fee. Each Conversion Service transaction is subject to a fee (the "Conversion Fee", sometimes also referred to as an "Exchange Fee") charged by RockItCoin which consists of: (a) a fee for the conversion of local currency (e.g., US Dollar) for bitcoin (or vice versa) which is calculated as a percentage of the local currency to be converted, plus (b) either of: (i) a fixed transfer fee which may be applied to cover applicable bank fees, if any, or (ii) a convenience fee. RockItCoin will not process a conversion if a fixed transfer fee exceeds the value of your transaction. The applicable Conversion Fee will be displayed to you on the RockItCoin Site prior to you confirmation of a Conversion Service transaction.
4.6.1. You agree to deliver payment for any bitcoin purchase made through the Conversion Service upon confirmation of an order, regardless of changes in the applicable Buy Price Conversion Rate prior to completion of the purchase transaction, with such payment to be made in good funds in the amount calculated in the manner specified herein.
4.6.2. We reserve the right to refuse to process, or to cancel or reverse, any purchases or sales of bitcoin or transfers to or from your Wallet(s) in its sole discretion, even after funds have been debited from your account(s), including but not limited to instances where RockItCoin suspects the transaction involves (or has a high risk of involvement in) money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud, or any other type of financial crime, in response to a subpoena, court order, or other government order, or if RockItCoin suspects the transaction relates to Prohibited Use or a Prohibited Business as set forth below. In such instances, RockItCoin will reverse the transaction and we are under no obligation to allow you to reinitiate a purchase or sale order at the same price or on the same terms as the cancelled transaction.
4.6.3. You do not have a statutory right to withdraw from a transaction to buy or sell bitcoin once you have instructed RockItCoin because the price of bitcoin fluctuates in accordance with the financial market for bitcoin which is outside the control of RockItCoin.
