Conditions of Use

Last updated: November 11, 2018

IMPORTANT – READ CAREFULLY

By using the Bitcoin.com website (the “Site”), its subdomains, and any services available within the site (collectively the “Services”), you agree to be bound by these Conditions of Use. If you do not agree, do not use the Services.

The Services are the property of Saint Bitts LLC, a limited liability company located at 858 Zenway Blvd, Frigate Bay, Saint Kitts, Saint Kitts and Nevis (“Saint Bitts”). Saint Bitts reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to amend, change, modify, add or remove portions of these Conditions of Use at any time.

It is your responsibility to check these terms periodically for changes. The current version of these terms is available at www.bitcoin.com/legal. Your continued use of the Services following the published updates to the terms will mean that you accept and agree to the changes.

We offer a wide range of Services, and sometimes additional terms may apply. When you use a Bitcoin.com Service (for example, games.bitcoin.com, pool.bitcoin.com, or forum.bitcoin.com) you also will be subject to the guidelines, terms, and agreements applicable to that particular Service ("Service Terms"). If these Conditions of Use are inconsistent with the Service Terms, those Service Terms will control.

PRIVACY

Please review our Privacy Notice, which also governs your use of our Services, to understand our practices.

All materials published on the Services (the “Content”) are identified as being free from known restrictions under copyright law, including neighboring rights. You can copy, modify, perform, or distribute the work without asking permission, provided the work is not being used for commercial purposes. For the purpose of clarity, Content applies only to photos and news articles displayed on the Site; Content is not (a) any source or object code pertaining to any functionality of the site, (b) any of the apps or tools Bitcoin.com makes available to users, (c) the Bitcoin.com logo, insignia and other trademarks, (d) the look and feel of the Bitcoin.com website and associated trade dress. More precisely, Bitcoin.com grants you an irrevocable, nonexclusive copyright free-use license (the “License”) to download, copy, modify, distribute, perform, and use photos from Bitcoin.com for free, but only for non-commercial purposes, without first seeking further permission or attributing the image to Bitcoin.com. This License does not include the right to compile photos or articles from Bitcoin.com to replicate a similar or competing service. Where the use of the Content is commercial in nature, photos and/or news articles may be used freely provided the image is clearly attributed to Bitcoin.com. You may download or copy the Content and other downloadable items displayed on the Services for personal use only. Copying or storing of any Content for other than personal use is expressly prohibited without prior written permission. The licenses granted by Saint Bitts terminate if you do not comply with these Conditions of Use or any Service Terms.

SAINT BITTS DOES NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES THAT ACCESS TO THE SITE, ANY PART OF THE SERVICES, OR ANY OF THE MATERIALS CONTAINED THEREIN, WILL BE CONTINUOUS, UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, OR ERROR-FREE.

You agree to hold harmless and indemnify Saint Bitts, and its affiliates, management, officers, agents, subcontractors and employees from and against any third party claim arising from or in any way related to your, including your affiliates, management, officers, agents, subcontractors and employees, and or other person's use of the Services, including any liability or expense arising from all claims, losses, damages (actual and consequential), suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys' fees, of every kind and nature.

GOVERNING LAW

The Agreement is governed by and shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the Hong Kong. Except where prohibited by applicable law, any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of the Services will be resolves by binding arbitration under the electronic transaction arbitration rules of the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre. Hong Kong shall be the seat of arbitration and any such dispute shall be resolved at the Hong Kong international arbitration center by a single arbitrator.

You agree that any dispute resolution proceeding will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial.

The meanings of terms, conditions and representations herein are subject to definitions and interpretations in the English language. Any translation provided may not accurately represent the information in the original English.
