The Company's rights
 

  1. The Company reserves its right to make such changes to the site's content, information and services as it shall in its sole discretion see fit, without having to give prior notice, and it shall not be liable towards the user or towards any third party for any damage should the service be terminated.
     
  2. The Company prohibits the use of the site for the purpose of publishing information in violation of the provisions of any law. Any party who nevertheless does so, and not the Company, shall be exclusively accountable for the publication of such information.
     
  3. Without derogating from any other reliefs which it has at its disposal by law, the Company shall be entitled to prevent the user from making full and/or partial use of the site and/or to take such other and/or additional steps as it shall in its sole discretion see fit and without having to obtain the user's consent and/or to give the user prior notice, and without the user making any claim in the matter against the Company.
     
  4. Registration for the site by the user shall constitute approval and agreement to be included in the list of the site's and the Company's customers and to receive direct mail from the Company. The user may at any time ask for his details to be removed from the site's and the Company's list and cancel the direct mail to him and the Company shall act to remove him from its mailing list within a reasonable time. For the avoidance of doubt, it is clarified that in such a case the Company may delete the user's account.

     

Use of the site
 

  1. The site shall only be used by a legally competent adult (a person aged 18 years or older) who holds an Israeli identity card or by a registered corporation which has an address in Israel. Should, notwithstanding the foregoing, a transaction be entered into by a minor of a type which minors of his age habitually engage in and/or with the consent of his guardian, the Company may in its sole discretion decide to honor or cancel the transaction.
     
  2. When registering for the site, the user must give the Company identifying details which shall be used, inter alia, for the purpose of contracting with him and complying with the provisions of the Prohibition on Money Laundering Law and he undertakes that the details which he shall give are accurate. When entering into a transaction through the site, the user may be required to give additional information, including for the purpose of compliance with the provisions of the Prohibition on Money Laundering Law. The failure to give details or the giving of inaccurate details may result in the transaction not being approved or implemented.
     
  3. The primary and principal use of the site shall be as described hereinafter. As has been clarified above, the use is subject to change at any time and some of the options may be temporarily or permanently unavailable, in accordance with the Company's discretion.
     
  4. The user may enter into a purchase ("purchaser") or a sale ("seller") transaction with another user through the site's bulletin board. A sale or purchase advertisement may be placed for the quoted rate or a fixed rate, for a fixed price or one chosen from a range of options.
     
  5. The precise sum being transferred at the time of implementing the transaction may be slightly different from the sum which is specified on the bulletin board due to the addition of transaction verification and monitoring costs. Nonpayment of the precise sum as shown on the site may cause the transaction to be delayed or even cancelled. In such a case the user shall be charged a fee of [$25] to cover the cost of dealing with the matter.
     
  6. Should a transaction be cancelled a fee shall be collected from the seller and the purchaser as shall be shown to them on the site. The amount of the fee is inclusive of VAT.
     
  7. The transaction shall be entered into at the user's direct request in accordance with the advertisement published on the bulletin board. The offer shall be referred to the advertiser who may accept it within the period of time that shall be allocated to him by the site. The advertiser is not obliged to accept the offer which shall lapse when the specified time expires. The offer is not exclusive and a number of offers may be forwarded to the advertiser contemporaneously.
     
  8. Should the advertiser accept the offer, then the seller and purchaser shall be obliged to enter into the transaction upon the terms which were presented to them by the site, including those relating to payment of the precise sums and fees, the identification details and any other relevant requirement. Any action which deviates from the precise instructions may result in non-implementation of the transaction and damage to the rating of the site's users.
     
  9. It should be noted that non-implementation of a transaction shall not in any event constitute a breach of contract, but may only manifest itself within the framework of the site users' rating. The Company is not and shall not be a party to a transaction between the users, notwithstanding its definition as a financial asset operator, and it acts exclusively as the parties' trustee. Non-implementation of a transaction shall not constitute grounds for one user to sue his counterpart and implementation of a transaction cannot be forced upon a user in any way. The Company shall not be obliged to give any details to a user regarding any transaction which was carried out or not carried out.
     
  10. After receiving the offer the purchaser shall contact one of the braches of the company GMT Global Money Transfers Ltd ("GMT" and "the Branch" as the case may be), which are published on the site from time to time. Within 2 business days from the date on which the transaction was entered into on the site or within such other period as the Company shall specify, the purchaser shall be obliged to report to the Branch and identify himself by 2 identity cards in accordance with the provisions of the Prohibition on Money Laundering Law, give the transaction code and pay the consideration and the commission. Performance of the transaction shall be conditional upon the purchaser handing over and presenting any additional document requested by the Branch and/or GMT Ltd. Should the purchaser not show up and/or fail to make the payment by the specified date then the transaction shall expire. On the date on which the transaction is implemented, the purchaser must verify that the address of the electronic wallet for transferring the virtual currency is correct, since the transfer cannot be cancelled, and the purchaser shall be exclusively responsible if as a result of giving an incorrect wallet address the currency was transferred to an unknown and unidentified third party, which does not constitute grounds to halt the transaction.
     
  11. Once payment has been made by the purchaser, the seller shall receive a notice instructing him to transfer the currency to the wallet address which was given by the purchaser within 48 hours [2 business days] or within such other period as the Company shall specify. The currency may not be transferred after the specified deadline and should such a transfer be made it may result in the money being returned to the purchaser, without the seller being able to cancel the transfer. The seller shall bear sole responsibility in such a case and the Company and/or the Branch and/or GMT shall not be held liable for the consequences of a late transfer as aforesaid.
     
  12. Upon confirmation of the currency transfer when the transaction has progressed to a certain point as shall be determined by the Company, the seller may report to one of GMT's branches. Upon his arrival at the Branch the seller must identify himself by 2 identity cards in accordance with the provisions of the Prohibition on Money Laundering Law, and subject to giving the transaction code and the Company's approval, he shall receive the net consideration, after deduction of the commission which was agreed upon between the seller and the Company before the transaction was carried out. The seller shall submit and hand over any additional document should he be required to do so by the Branch and/or GMT Ltd as a condition for undertaking the transaction.
     
  13. The GMT Branch shall not be approached until the Company has confirmed that the currency has been fully transferred to the requisite extent. The seller is recommended to set a high transfer commission for the currency in order to ensure that implementation of the transaction is expedited.
     
  14. Since the Company is working with both parties in a fiduciary capacity, and despite the fact that the Company is not itself a party to the transaction, the transaction may be carried out with the Company's endorsement only, and it may in its sole discretion cancel it at any stage and at any given moment, without having to give any reason for its decision.
     
  15. The users carrying out the transaction are subject to the laws of the State of Israel, including the provisions of the Income Tax Ordinance, the Prohibition on Money Laundering Law and the Orders which were enacted pursuant thereto, and they confirm that they are and shall be acting in compliance with every law concerning the transaction and its consequences.
     
  16. Without derogating from the foregoing, it is clarified that GMT Ltd and its Branches are not and shall not be accountable to any extent towards the users for implementation of the transaction. Moreover, since in providing its services, GMT Ltd and its Branches must comply with the provisions of the Prohibition on Money Laundering Law and the Control of Financial Services (Regulated Financial Services) Law, GMT and/or its Branches may refuse a request to transfer monies and/or collect the consideration and/or provide the consideration without giving a reason for that refusal. In addition, it is clarified that since GMT operates through Branches/independent sub-agents, the sub-agents may also refuse to provide the services for business reasons and the users shall not make any claim and/or demand with respect to that refusal.
     
  17. Users shall be contacted through notices on the site and/or email and/or text messages. The determining notices are those on the site only and the user must check the site frequently when entering into transactions. Other notices, such as those sent in email or text messages may not be exclusively relied upon.
     
  18. Users of the site shall receive a rating based upon the opinion of the other users and such additional data as the Company shall decide upon. The rating, which the Company shall give in its sole discretion, is peremptory. Upon the completion of each transaction or on such other date as the Company shall decide upon, the user may rate other users. The Company may divulge users' ratings publicly on the site and to each user who is interested in entering into a transaction with another user.
