THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS, AS WELL AS CONDITIONS, LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS THAT MIGHT APPLY TO YOU. PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY.
THESE TERMS REQUIRE THE USE OF ARBITRATION ONLY TO RESOLVE DISPUTES.
THE VALUE OF DIGITAL ASSETS CAN GO UP OR DOWN AND THERE CAN BE A SUBSTANTIAL RISK THAT YOU LOSE MONEY BUYING, SELLING, HOLDING, OR INVESTING IN DIGITAL ASSETS. YOU SHOULD CAREFULLY CONSIDER WHETHER TRADING OR HOLDING DIGITAL ASSETS IS SUITABLE FOR YOU IN LIGHT OF YOUR FINANCIAL CONDITION.
About Peaceful and its Services
Peaceful is a leading peer-to-peer marketplace to facilitate the purchase and sale of Digital Assets. Payment methods are negotiated and exchanged on a peer-to-peer basis between the buyers in the Marketplace (“Buyers”) and sellers in the Marketplace (“Sellers”). Our users agree upon which payment methods to use to complete a transaction and are fully responsible and liable for using such payment methods in a lawful manner.
Peaceful also offers hosted digital wallet services through a leading global digital asset wallet provider. Our worldwide user base is able to post offers to either buy or sell Digital Assets in a variety of convenient methods. The creator of the offer is responsible for listing the terms of the transaction, including the payment methods the Seller will accept. Once an offer is selected by another Peaceful user, the Seller’s Digital Assets are locked as part of our transaction procedures (which we refer to as “Peaceful Escrow”) until all conditions necessary to consummate the transaction have occurred. The sale is complete and Digital Assets are unlocked and released to the Buyer by the Seller once the Buyer has completed the terms of the transaction and payment has been confirmed valid and received by the Seller. Peaceful DOES NOT ACT AS A PAYMENT PROCESSOR OR A PAYMENT SERVICE PROVIDER. ALL LIABILITY FOR SENDING AND RECEIVING PAYMENT AND CONFIRMING THE VALIDITY OF THE TRANSACTIONS LIE BETWEEN THE BUYER AND SELLER. The Digital Assets we lock are released back to the Seller if the Buyer chooses to cancel the transaction. The Seller may not cancel the transaction at any point. The Seller only has the option to unlock the Digital Assets and release it to the Buyer. This is for the security protection of the Buyer. Should a Seller need to cancel the transaction due to a Buyer not following the terms of the transaction, they must start a dispute and provide a valid reason. Transactions on our Website are conducted between the Buyers and Sellers. Accordingly, Peaceful is not a party to any transaction.
The hosted digital currency wallet service provided by Peaceful is a secure method of storing, sending, and receiving digital currency. All digital currency transactions occur within the digital currency network, not on Peaceful. There are no guarantees that the transaction will process on the digital currency network. Peaceful reserves the right to refuse to process any transaction if required by law or if we deem the transactions to be against our terms and conditions in this Agreement. You hereby accept and acknowledge that you take full responsibility for all activities that occur under your wallet and accept all risks of any authorized or unauthorized access to your wallet, to the maximum extent permitted by law.
- We reserve the right to amend, modify, change or revise this Agreement at any time for any reason without liability, in our sole and absolute discretion and without prior notice.
