8. Cointessa Services
If you are buying or selling cryptocurrencies through our service, you are buying from or selling to us directly. We are not a marketplace between other buyers and sellers of cryptocurrencies. Our site has a Conversion Rate / Exchange Rate that is the price in terms of local currency at which you sell cryptocurrencies to Cointessa. You agree, as a condition of using any Cointessa Services, to accept the Conversion Rate / Exchange Rate as the sole conversion metric. All rates mentioned on the site are subject to misprint. Cointessa does not accept any liability for the consequences of misprints.
8.2. Right to suspend any transactions or settlements
We have the right to cancel or to settle any ongoing / pending cryptocurrency or local currency transaction connected to your account as required by law, court order or any other binding government order. We have the right to refuse to process or cancel any transactions that you make with cryptocurrencies, if our website suspects that the transaction involves terrorist financing, money laundering, fraud or any other type of financial crime. We may, in our sole discretion, delay transactions or settlements if we believe the transaction is suspicious, may involve fraud, violates applicable laws, or violates the terms of this Agreement. If we have technical difficulties with our site, or your account, Cointessa may suspend your account temporarily until the problem is resolved. We try to not let this happen.
8.3. You need to be aware that, by making a local currency payment to Cointessa Bank Accounts, you are making an order to buy cryptocurrencies or sell cryptocurrencies at the "Conversion Rate" that is applicable at the time we fully process your order (receive the payment and process the exchange), and not the conversion rate applicable at the time you initiated your transaction. We will do our best to finalize your order in the shortest possible time but there can be substantial delays between the time we receive your order or payment and process the exchange. Your orders are processed during our business hours as stated on the website. In connection with any purchase or sell of cryptocurrencies through the service, we will try to fullfill such purchase orders at the applicable Conversion Rate / Exchange Rate. However, from time to time, it may be necessary for Cointessa to delay fulfillment of a purchase / sell order, until such time as we are able to execute, make the transaction happen. We will send you directly the amount of cryptocurrency or local currency that you will receive either to your cryptocurrency wallet or your provided bank account.
8.4. Buying cryptocurrencies
You need to be aware that, by making a local currency payment to Cointessa Bank Accounts, you are making an order to buy cryptocurrencies at the "Conversion Rate". It will be based on the applicable Conversion Rate at the time Cointessa accomplishes your order, not the applicable Conversion Rate that was at the time we received your payment or your order. Local currency payments may take up to a few days to reach our Bank Accounts, in this situation again the Conversion Rate might be different from the time we receive such payment. Local currency payments that might not originate from the correct User Bank Account or an unidentified Account, will be sent back to the original account. We only accept payments that originate from your Bank Account that is under your control, and your name. The only way you can purchase cryptocurrencies is by using the bank account that is registered under the name you registered your Cointessa Account with. We have the right to delay or cancel any settlement if it observes a risk of fraud or illegal activity.
The market rates of the cryptocurrencies fluctuate, the values vary at any given moment. General rules when buying cryptocurrencies:
- Cointessa does not guarantee the future value of any cryptocurrency in any way.
- Cointessa uses current market rates. These can vary at any given moment.
- Customer should always enter his / her own address when buying cryptocurrencies. By entering an address that is not his / her, customer does so entirely at his / her own risk.
- In the event of suspicion of abuse or fraud, Cointessa reserves the right to suspend transactions until the legitimacy of the transaction has been verified.
- A bank account can only be used for one Cointessa account.
- Customer declares to be the owner of the bank account that is used and to have truthfully entered all the required information.
Once the cryptocurrencies are sent out to the address specified by you we can't refund your order. Please make sure you spell your cryptocurrency address properly, we can't give refunds if you misspelled your cryptocurrency addresses. We do check if your cryptocurrency address is a proper address, however we have no way of checking if you really control it. If you change your mind and rather not want to buy cryptocurrencies, but you have already paid the order amount to us, we can give you a refund in case we didn't send out your cryptocurrencies yet. We take a 5% processing fee and send the remaining to you. We also deduct any bank fees that may occur for refunds.
