1.1. Eligibility. To be eligible to use the Sequoir Services, you must be at least 18 years old.
1.2. Sequoir Services. Your Sequoir account ("Sequoir Account") encompasses the following basic Sequoir services: Digital Currency conversion services through which users can buy and sell Digital Currencies in transactions with Sequoir (the "Conversion Services"). The risk of loss in trading or holding Digital Currency can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether trading or holding Digital Currency is suitable for you in light of your financial condition.
2.1. Registration of Sequoir Account. In order to use any of the Sequoir Services, you must first register by providing your name, e-mail address, password, and affirming your acceptance of this Agreement. Sequoir may, in our sole discretion, refuse to allow you to establish a Sequoir account or limit the number of Sequoir Accounts that a single user may establish and maintain at any time.
3.1. In General. Eligible users in certain jurisdictions may buy or sell supported Digital Currency through the Conversion Services. The Conversion Services are subject to the Sequoir "Conversion Rate" for the given transaction. "Conversion Rate" means the price of a given supported Digital Currency amount in terms of Fiat Currency or other Digital Currency as quoted on the Sequoir Site. The Conversion Rate is stated either as a "Buy Price" or as a "Sell Price," which is the price in terms of Fiat Currency or Digital Currency at which you may buy or sell supported Digital Currency to Sequoir. You acknowledge that the quoted Buy Price Conversion Rate may not be the same as the Sell Price Conversion Rate at any given time and that Sequoir may add a margin or "spread" to the quoted Conversion Rate. You agree, as a condition of using any Sequoir Conversion Services, to accept the Conversion Rate as the sole conversion metric. Sequoir reserves the right to delay any Conversion Service transaction if it perceives a risk of fraud or illegal activity. Sequoir does not guarantee the availability of its Conversion Service, and the act of purchasing supported Digital Currency from Sequoir does not result in a guarantee that you may sell your supported Digital Currency to Sequoir.
3.2. Purchase Transactions. After successfully completing the Verification Procedures, you may purchase supported Digital Currency by linking a valid payment method. You authorize Sequoir to initiate debits from your selected payment method(s) in the settlement of purchase transactions. A Conversion Fee (defined below) applies to all purchase transactions. Although Sequoir will attempt to deliver supported Digital Currency to you as promptly as possible, funds may be debited from your selected payment method before Digital Currency is delivered to your Sequoir Account. We may debit your selected payment method, such as your bank account or credit card, as soon as the same day you initiate the purchase but your payment may take three or more business days to process. We will make the best efforts to fulfill all transactions, but in the rare circumstance where Sequoir cannot fulfill your purchase order, we will notify you and seek your approval to fulfill the purchase order at the contemporaneous Buy Price Conversion Rate. To secure the performance of your obligations under this Agreement, you grant to Sequoir a lien on and security interest in and to the balances in your account.
3.3. Sale Transactions. After successfully completing the Verification Procedures, you may sell supported Digital Currency by linking a valid payment method. You authorize Sequoir to debit your Sequoir Account(s) and initiate payments to your selected payment method(s) in settlement of sell transactions. An applicable Conversion Fee (defined below) applies to all sale transactions. Your receipt of funds will depend on the payment type and may take up to three or more business days.
3.4. Conversion Fees. Each Conversion Service transaction is subject to a fee (a "Conversion Fee"). The applicable Conversion Fee is displayed to you on the Sequoir Site prior to you completing a Conversion Service transaction. Sequoir will not process a conversion transaction if the Conversion Fee and any other associated fees as may apply, such as wire transfer fees, exceed the value of your transaction. Sequoir may waive some portion of the Conversion Fee depending on the payment method you select. The availability of each Payment Method depends on a number of factors, including but not limited to your location, the identification information you have provided to us, and limitations imposed by third-party payment processors.
You can view the current fee applicable to your location and payment method at our Fees page.
Sequoir reserves the right to adjust its Conversion Fees and any applicable waivers at any time. We will always notify you of the Conversion Fee which applies to your transaction when you authorize the transaction and in each receipt, we issue to you.
3.5. Reversals; Cancellations. You cannot cancel, reverse, or change any transaction marked as complete or pending. If your payment is not successful or if your payment method has insufficient funds, you authorize Sequoir, in its sole discretion, either to cancel the transaction or to debit your other payment methods, including Sequoir balances or other linked accounts, in any amount necessary to complete the transaction. You are responsible for maintaining an adequate balance and/or sufficient credit limits in order to avoid overdraft, NSF, or similar fees charged by your payment provider. Sequoir reserves the right to refuse to process, or to cancel or reverse, any purchases or sales of Digital Currency in its sole discretion, even after funds have been debited from your account(s) if Sequoir 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; if Sequoir reasonably suspects that the transaction is erroneous; or if Sequoir suspects the transaction relates to Prohibited Use or a Prohibited Business as set forth below. In such instances, Sequoir will reverse the transaction and we are under no obligation to allow you to reinstate a purchase or sale order at the same price or on the same terms as the canceled transaction.
3.6. Payment Services Partners. Sequoir may use a third-party payment processor to process any US Dollar payment between you and Sequoir.

Sequoir reserves all rights not expressly granted herein in the Service and the Sequoir Content. Sequoir may terminate this license at any time for any reason or no reason.
4.2. Digital Asset Swap Prices and Payment Acceptance. The price offered to each user for each swap transaction may be a user-specific or transaction-specific price formed by Sequoir in its sole discretion. Sequoir does not provide all users with the same spreads or pricing with every quote. The price offered to a user may factor in brokerage, risk, liquidity, and other proprietary factors. For a standard transaction, the price is provided at the time your payment is received and confirmed by the blockchain network, limited to the number of confirmations Sequoir deems reasonable in order to protect Sequoir from double spends, 51% attacks or other associated risks. For the avoidance of doubt, a payment broadcasted to the blockchain network does not constitute an acceptance by Sequoir.
Sequoir usually charges a fixed fee of 0.25% per Swap for its services but may this may differ depending on brokerage, risk, liquidity, and several other factors, this fee is included in any displayed exchange rates. Final swap exchange rates and prices may vary slightly from the original quote provided due to market movement between the order being placed and the swap executing. These changes may be slightly above, or below the original quote and will be included in your swap confirmation email.
Sequoir only accepts one payment per Transaction ID (“TXID”). Ie; funds need to be sent in a single transaction and cannot be split into several payments. If your funds are deposited into several transactions you will need to contact support to receive a refund. The price will not be honored and your transaction will not be completed. User Transactions that do not confirm within forty-eight (48) hours of being detected may be canceled. Refund requests will be provided in accordance with our Returns and Refund Policy. Sequoir reserves the right to refuse to process or to cancel any pending Transaction as required by law or in response to a subpoena, court order, or other binding government order or to enforce any transaction limits. Sequoir further reserves the right to delay any Transaction if it perceives a risk of fraud or illegal activity. Sequoir further reserves the right to refuse to process or cancel any Transaction due to technical issues with the blockchain software, Sequoir software, or for any other technological reasons. Sequoir cannot reverse a Transaction which has been broadcast to a blockchain network.
4.3. Cancellations. You cannot reverse, or change any transaction marked as complete or pending. You may cancel your account by emailing us at email@example.com, or contact us via the in-app help however there are no refunds for cancellation of your account.

Unsupported Assets; Unsupported digital assets that are sent into our system to unrelated wallets cannot be extracted or returned.

Sequoir uses multi-level systems and procedures to collect and verify information about you in order to protect Sequoir and the community from fraudulent users and to keep appropriate records of Sequoir's customers. Your daily or weekly Conversion limits, withdrawal and trading limits, Instant Buy limits, USD Wallet transfer limits, and limits on transactions from a linked payment method are based on the identifying information and/or proof of identity you provide to Sequoir.
All U.S. users who wish to buy Digital Currency using Sequoir's Standard Conversion Service, at minimum, must:
* Establish a Sequoir Account by providing your name, authenticating your e-mail address, and accepting the Sequoir User Terms
* Add and verify a phone number
All U.S. users who wish to use other Sequoir Services may be required to:
* Add personal details (full name, date of birth, residential address)
* Add a payment method
* Complete identity verification by answering a few questions
Notwithstanding these minimum verification procedures for the referenced Sequoir Services, Sequoir may require you to provide or verify additional information, or to wait some amount of time after completion of a transaction, before permitting you to use any Sequoir Services and/or before permitting you to engage in transactions beyond certain volume limits. You may determine the volume limits associated with your level of identity verification by visiting your account's Limits page.
You may contact us at support.sequoir.com to request larger limits. Sequoir will require you to submit to Enhanced Due Diligence. Additional fees and costs may apply, and Sequoir does not guarantee that we will raise your limits.
This policy describes how Sequoir delivers communications to you electronically. We may amend this policy at any time by providing a revised version on our website. The revised version will be effective at the time we post it. We will provide you with prior notice of any material changes via our website.

* Legal, regulatory, and tax disclosures or statements we may be required to make available to you; and
* Responses to claims or customer support inquiries filed in connection with your Account.
We will provide these Communications to you by posting them on the Sequoir website, emailing them to you at the primary email address listed in your Sequoir profile, communicating to you via instant chat, and/or through other electronic communication such as text message or mobile push notification.

In order to access and retain electronic Communications, you will need the following computer hardware and software:

Updating your Information
It is your responsibility to provide us with a true, accurate, and complete e-mail address and your contact information, and to keep such information up to date.
