Terms of Service

Last Updated: May 21, 2017

The following terms of service describe the way in which you may access, browse or use our website and its provided services in any way. Your use of our website in any way signifies your full acceptance to being legally bound by these terms as hereafter outlined, as well as our privacy policy, and all other policies that are incorporated by reference.

If you are not in full agreement with any of these provisions, you must immediately exit the website. Your use of the Apercoin website will be deemed to be an irrevocable agreement to these terms.

We reserve the right to revise, add to, or delete from these terms at any time, without prior notice to you. You will however find the last updated date at the top of this page every time we revise the terms, and your continued use of the apercoin.com after we have made any change shall be taken as your acceptance to continue to be bound by the terms of use as revised.

Allowed jurisdictions

You understand and accept that our services may not be legally allowed in certain jurisdictions. Your use of this website and acceptance of these terms of service shall be taken to mean that you do not reside in or access our website and services from such a proscribed jurisdiction.

User accounts

While visitors are free and welcome to visit our website, you must have a user account to take advantage of most of our services. To become a user of the apercoin.com website, we will ask you to complete an online registration form. To complete this, you will need to make available personal information such as relevant contact details.

You hereby pledge that any information that you make available to Apercoin, both during and after the registration process is truthful, complete and current. We may refuse any use now and later of the Apercoin service or terminate your user account if any information provided by you is found to be incorrect, false, incomplete, or deliberately misleading or fraudulent (including without limitation creating fake reputation information for your Apercoin account, submitting a non-personal phone number, providing fraudulent identification documents or faking your country of origin).

All users are solely and completely responsible for the safety of their account information (including user names, passwords, and any other codes that you use to access Apercoin) and every activity that occurs in connection with that account. Neither apercoin.com nor its affiliates will be liable for any unauthorized transactions using your password or account name. You however may be liable for any unauthorized usage of your account that may cause monetary or defamatory liability for apercoin.com and its users.

You understand and accept that you are to use your Apercoin account for your own personal transactions only, and must never use your account as an intermediary or broker for a third party. 
You agree to notify Apercoin immediately of any unauthorized use.

Users must be 18 years or older and must have the legal capability to enter any agreement with apercoin.com in order to register for an account and use our services.

We may occasionally ask you to complete our ID verification process and/or ask you to submit additional identification documents if we deem it necessary. Your failure to comply with Apercoin's directives to complete our ID verification will be considered a violation of this agreement.

We retain the right, at our exclusive discretion, to deny access to the website and the services we offer to any one, at any time and for any reason, including, but not limited to the violation of this agreement. We also reserve the right to limit access to your Bitcoin balance for up to six calendar months, or longer following a court order or other similar legal processes, if you violate this agreement or any other contract you enter into with Apercoin, or as otherwise specified in these Terms of Service or other agreements you have entered into with Apercoin.

You understand and accept that Apercoin may utilize proprietary fraud and risk modeling to assess risks associated with user accounts, and that high risk users may be deemed to be in violation of these terms.

We may monitor your password and at our discretion, ask you to change it. If your password is considered to be insecure, Apercoin.com will ask you to change it and may terminate your account upon your refusal to do so.

Deals and Trades

As a registered Apercoin user, you have our permission to buy and/or sell bitcoins. You may do this in two ways:

  • Initiating a trade by contacting other users who have created deals; and/or
  • Waiting for other Apercoin users to initiate trades with you by contacting you.

When you initiate a trade, you must comply with the vendor’s terms of trade as outlined by the vendor and displayed as the terms of trade on the deal page. You understand and accept that all vendor's terms of trade shall be considered valid in all cases except when such terms expressly break relevant law; contradict the Apercoin Terms of Service; or if both parties of the trade agree to review and modify the terms of trade.

All prices of a deal comprise all the fees that the vendor requires the user initiating the trade to pay, and may not be changed or any additional fees added without consent from both parties of the trade and Apercoin.com. The bitcoin price is locked and cannot be changed after initiation of a trade.

You may have many active deals on your one Apercoin account at a time. However, you may not create multiple deals for the same payment method in the same country except where the deals are limited to certain customer groups and/or have a price difference of at least 3 percent.

All deals must be placed in the accurate payment category. In the event that a category does not exist for the payment method, it must be created.

You may not offer or receive payments using any other method or through any other means other than through the Apercoin trade system. Providing payment details through any other communication channel shall be deemed a violation of these terms of service.

In the event that a payment made by a buyer to a seller is held, frozen, reversed, charged back or withheld from the seller in any way whatsoever, we will deem the buyer to be in breach of these terms of service, and will release buyer’s user information to the seller to assist in recovery of the funds.

It is our policy to hold all in escrow during the entire trade process until the seller has received payment in full.

Upon request by Apercoin, buyers must be able toprovide suitable proof of payment for at least six calendar months after a trade has been completed.

You understand and accept that we may hide, delete, or limit your deals, if you violate this agreement or any other contract you enter into with Apercoin, or as otherwise specified in these terms of service or other agreements you have entered into with Apercoin.

You understand and accept that Apercoin may utilize proprietary fraud and risk modeling to assess risks associated with your account, deals and trades. If your account is considered to pose a high risk to us or other Apercoin users, we will consider you to be in breach of these terms of service. This may result in a temporary limitation on your account and a freeze of your wallet in accordance with these terms of service.

Resolving disputes

In the event of a disagreement between a buyer and seller of a trade, Apercoin support staff will step in to resolve such disputes.

We will do so by carefully evaluating the terms of trade, trade chat messages, payment evidence, user reputation, as well as other necessary data submitted to us by our users and information collected by us as part of the privacy policy.

In the event that a seller refuses to respond, we will resolve the dispute in favor of the buyer if we are assured that the seller has received valid payment from the buyer. In the event that a buyer refuses to respond, the seller may dispute the trade and Apercoin will resolve the dispute in favor of the seller.

If payment details are provided outside of Apercoin, the dispute may be resolved without taking the payment details into consideration.

A trade shall be considered finished and cannot be disputed, reversed or altered, if the trade is released by the seller, cancelled by the buyer or automatically cancelled due to not being marked as paid.

You will be considered as being in violation of this agreement if you present fraudulent information or documents in a dispute or if you make false claims or otherwise try to force a certain outcome of a disputed trade.
