The BitNational website ("Website") is owned and operated by BitNationalEX Inc. ("BitNational").
The Website offers services operated by BitNational to allow registered users ("Users") to: (i) buy and sell OR TRADE various supported digital currencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Ripple XRP (each, a "Digital Currency"); (ii) transfer Digital Currency to other Users or other users of the Digital Currency outside AND WITHIN the Website; (iii) trade legal tender for Digital Currency; and (iv) purchase Digital Currency directly from BitNational; among other services (collectively, together with the Website, "Services").
BitNational may not make the Services available in all markets and jurisdictions, and may restrict or prohibit use of the Services from certain jurisdictions ("Restricted Locations"). If you are registering to use the Services on behalf of a legal entity, you represent and warrant that: (i) such legal entity is duly organized and validly existing under the applicable laws of the jurisdiction of its organization; and (ii) you are duly authorized by such legal entity to act on its behalf; and (iii) buying and selling Digital Currency and all other transactions through the Services (each, a "Transaction") are legal in your jurisdiction.
In order to engage in any Transactions, you must create an Account and provide any requested information. When you create an Account, you agree to: (a) create a strong password that you do not use for any other website or online service; (b) provide current, accurate and complete information, and to keep such information updated; (c) maintain and promptly update your Account information; (d) maintain the security of your Account by protecting your password and restricting access to your Account; and (e) promptly notify us if you discover or otherwise suspect any security breaches related to your Account; and (f) you will log out the Website by taking proper steps at the end of every visit.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account information, including your password, safeguarding of your Digital Currency, and for all activities including Transactions that conducted through your Account. You are responsible for all activities that occur under your Account and accept all risks of any authorized or unauthorized access to your Account, to the maximum extent permitted by law.
You will not use any Account other than your own, or access the Account of any other User at any time, or assist others in obtaining unauthorised access. You may not open more than one Account at a time. You may not authorize others to trade in your account, nor will you trade on their behalf.
If there is any suspicious activity related to your Account, we may, but are not obligated to, request additional information from you, including authenticating documents, and to suspend any
Transactions during our review. You must comply with these security requests, or accept cancellation of Transactions or termination of your Account.
Prior to performing any Transactions, you will need to add funds to your Account using the approved methods set out on the Website. You may be charged fees by your financial services provider for transferring funds to and from your Account. BitNational makes no guarantees regarding the time it may take to transfer funds to and from your Account. You acknowledge that your financial services provider may not permit transfers to or from your Account, or may otherwise not be available.
BitNational will not be responsible for any delays or failures to make such transfers. For any Digital Currency-only Accounts, you may only add and withdraw funds in that Digital Currency. Funds in your account will accrue any interest.
When you complete a Transaction request via the Services, you authorize BitNational to submit your request for the Transaction in accordance with your instructions provided through the Services. If you do not have sufficient funds in your Account to complete a Transaction, BitNational may cancel the entire Transaction or may partially fulfill the Transaction up to amount of funds available, less any Transaction fees.
BitNational may, at any time, in its discretion, cancel any Transaction, impose or change any restrictions or requirements on Transactions, including Transaction value limits, or any other changes to the Services or Website.
Use of the Services may incur BitNational fees, as set out in our Fee Schedule, which may be updated from time to time by BitNational.
Your access and use of the Website is at your own risk. There are inherent risks to using online trading technologies, including as a result of failures of hardware, software, internet connections and networks, and particularly in the field of Digital Currencies. The risk of loss from engaging in Transactions may be substantial. You acknowledge that values of Digital Currency can fluctuate significantly and may be subject to precipitous changes. You should therefore not use the Website or the Services if you do not understand the risk or have the financial resources to assume such risks.
BitNational is not a financial institution, bank, credit union, trust or caisse populaire, and does not accept deposits. BitNational does not and cannot guarantee the value of Digital Currency. Digital Currency is not legal tender, nor is it insured or controlled by governmental authorities which may operate to protect the value of the Digital Currency or your Account funds.
Digital Currencies rely on decentralized, partially anonymous third party networks using encryption technology, and BitNational is not responsible for, nor does it have control, over such networks or technology. Accordingly, BitNational does not guarantee that Transactions can always be effected by the Services, that Transactions will be completed, or made on a timely basis. Other Transactions may not be able to be made due to market conditions.
POSITIONS AND HOLDINGS ARE NOT DEPOSITS AND ARE NOT COVERED BY CANADIAN DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION (CDIC).
You may close your Account at any time, subject to completion of any outstanding Transactions and any other operational requirements of BitNational. We will transfer the balance of any closed Account to you, less any applicable fees.
Upon notice to you, BitNational may close or temporarily suspend your Account, prohibit access to the Website or any part thereof, if BitNational believes you are in breach of these Terms or any other requirements of BitNational for the use of the Services, for technical reasons, infringing the intellectual property, using the Services for any illegal purposes, including money laundering or fraud, contractual or privacy rights of any third party, pursuant to any judicial or law enforcement order or request, any other illegal or tortious acts, or for any reason in BitNational's discretion. The closing of an Account will not affect any obligation to pay fees owing, or to complete any outstanding Transactions, except in BitNational's discretion.
