PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY. BY USING OUR MACHINE, WEBSITE, OR RETAIL STORE SERVICES YOU AGREE TO BE LEGALLY BOUND BY THESE TERMS OF SERVICE AND ALL TERMS INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE.
Summary of Terms of Service
This summary of our Terms of Service offers you an overview of the key terms that apply to your use of our website, machine or retail store services. While we hope this summary section is helpful, you should read the complete Terms of Service below since they provide important information about how our services work. Please note that we refer to our online website or retail locations where you can convert cash to and from bitcoin as “LibertyX“.
LibertyX provides you with a simple and convenient way to trade legal tender (such as U.S. dollars and Euros) for digital assets (such as bitcoin). You may also use our Services to purchase digital assets directly from and to us. Our services do not provide users with the ability to trade one form of legal tender for another form of legal tender.
Eligibility and Acceptable Use
You must meet certain eligibility criteria to use LibertyX. For instance, you must be an adult and there are certain locations from which you may not be able to use some or all of LibertyX. Additionally, there are certain things you cannot do when using LibertyX, such as engage in illegal activities, lie, or do anything that would cause damage to our services or systems. Please see the acceptable use section for more details.
Owning digital assets may be risky. Please don’t use LibertyX if you do not understand these risks.
Other Important Legal Terms
There are important legal terms provided below in the complete Terms of Service, including your indemnification responsibilities, our limitation of liability and warranty disclaimers, and your agreement to arbitrate most disputes. Please take the time to read these terms carefully. You can always contact us if you have any questions by emailing us at: [email protected]

(“Moon” or “Company”) may not make the Services available in all markets and jurisdictions, and may restrict or prohibit use of the Services from certain U.S. states or foreign jurisdictions (“Restricted Locations“). If you are registering to use the Services on behalf of a legal entity, you represent and warrant that (i) such legal entity is duly organized and validly existing under the applicable laws of the jurisdiction of its organization; and (ii) you are duly authorized by such legal entity to act on its behalf.
You further represent and warrant that you: (a) are over the age of eighteen and of legal age to form a binding contract; (b) have not previously been suspended or removed from using our Services; (c) have full power and authority to enter into this agreement and in doing so will not violate any other agreement to which you are a party; (d) are not located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of (i) any Restricted Locations, or (ii) any country to which the United States has embargoed goods or services; (e) are not identified as a “Specially Designated National;” (f) are not placed on the Commerce Department’s Denied Persons List; and (g) will not use our Services if any applicable laws in your country prohibit you from doing so in accordance with these Terms.
4. GENERAL OBLIGATIONS
This Section 5 applies to: (i) all conversions completed via the Services and (ii) your purchase of Digital Assets directly from Moon Inc. via the Services.
4.1 Conditions and Restrictions. We may, at any time and in our sole discretion, refuse any requested conversion submitted via the Services, impose limits on the conversion amount permitted via the Services or impose any other conditions or restrictions upon your use of the Services without prior notice. For example, we may limit the aggregate number or value of transactions that you may establish via the Services or we may restrict conversions from certain locations.
4.2 Accuracy of Information. You must provide any information required when prompted by any screen displayed within the Services or person providing the Services. You represent and warrant that any information you provide via the Services is accurate and complete.
4.3 Cancellations You may only cancel an order initiated via the Services if such cancellation occurs before Moon Inc. executes the transaction. Once your order has been executed, you may not change, withdraw or cancel your authorization for Moon Inc. to complete such transaction. We reserve the right to refuse any cancellation request associated with a conversion request once you have submitted such order. While we may, at our sole discretion, reverse a conversion under certain extraordinary conditions, a customer does not have a right to a reversal of a conversion.
4.4 Taxes. It is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to the trades you complete via the Services, and it is your responsibility to report and remit the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority. You agree that Moon Inc. is not responsible for determining whether taxes apply to your conversions or for collecting, reporting, withholding or remitting any taxes arising from any conversions.
This Section applies only when you use the Services to trade Legal Tender for Digital Assets.
5.1 Authorization. When you submit a new order via the Services, you authorize Moon Inc. to execute a transaction in accordance with such order on a spot basis and charge you any applicable fees (as described in Section 8 below).
5.2 Independent relationship. You acknowledge and agree that: (a) Moon Inc. is not acting as your broker, intermediary, agent, or advisor or in any fiduciary capacity, and (b) no communication or information provided to you by Moon Inc. shall be considered or construed as advice.
5.3 Conversion confirmation. Once the Services execute your trade, a confirmation will be electronically made available via the Services detailing the particulars of the conversion. You acknowledge and agree that the failure of the Services to provide such confirmation shall not prejudice or invalidate the terms of such trade.
5.5 Market volatility. Particularly during periods of high volume, illiquidity, fast movement or volatility in the marketplace for any Digital Assets or Legal Tender, the actual market rate at which a market order or trade is executed may be different from the prevailing rate indicated via the Services at the time of your order or trade. You understand that we are not liable for any such price fluctuations. In the event of a market disruption or Force Majeure event (as defined in Section 24), Moon Inc. may do one or more of the following: (a) suspend access to the Services; or (b) prevent you from completing any actions via the Services. Following any such event, when trading resumes, you acknowledge that prevailing market rates may differ significantly from the rates available prior to such event.
6. RISK DISCLOSURE
6.1 Conversion risks. You acknowledge and agree that you shall access and use the Services at your own risk. The risk of loss in converting between Digital Asset and Legal Tender pairs can be substantial. You should, therefore, carefully consider whether such conversion is suitable for you in light of your circumstances and financial resources. You should be aware of the following points:
You may sustain a total loss of the value of the Digital Assets you acquired using the Services. Under certain market conditions, you may find it difficult or impossible to convert your Digital Assets. 6.2 Internet transmission risks. You acknowledge that there are risks associated with utilizing an Internet-based conversion system including, but not limited to, the failure of hardware, software, and Internet connections. You acknowledge that Moon Inc. shall not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays you may experience when trading via the Services, howsoever caused.
6.3 Government risks. Virtual Currency is not legal tender, is not backed by the government, and accounts and value balances are not subject to Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or Securities Investor Protection Corporation protections; legislative and regulatory changes or actions at the state, federal, or international level may adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange, and value of Virtual Currency.
6.4 Irreversibility risk. Transactions in Virtual Currency may be irreversible, and, accordingly, losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions may not be recoverable. If purchasing something with virtual currency recommend waiting for at least one confirmation (10 minutes) for medium-value transactions, and six confirmations (~1 hr) for high value transactions. This type of risk is similar to that of a bank wire, but with greater visibility to the real-time status. The irreversibility of Virtual Currency may lead to an increased risk of fraud or cyber attack.
6.5 Recordkeeping risk. Some Virtual Currency transactions shall be deemed to be made when recorded on a public ledger, which is not necessarily the date or time that the customer initiates the transaction. If determining when a transaction was broadcasted and propagated is important to you, run a full node and keep adequate logs.
6.6 Volatility risk. The value of Virtual Currency may be derived from the continued willingness of market participants to exchange Fiat Currency for Virtual Currency, which may result in the potential for permanent and total loss of value of a particular Virtual Currency should the market for that Virtual Currency disappear. The volatility and unpredictability of the price of Virtual Currency relative to Fiat Currency may result in significant loss over a short period of time.
6.7 Acceptance risk. There is no assurance that a Person who accepts a Virtual Currency as payment today will continue to do so in the future.
6.8 Technical difficulties risk. Any technological difficulties experienced by the Licensee may prevent a customer from being able to purchase virtual currency using the service.
6.9 Bonding risk. Any bond or trust account maintained by the Licensee for the benefit of its customers may not be sufficient to cover all losses incurred by customers.
7. DIGITAL ASSET TERMS OF SALE
This Section applies only when you use the Services to purchase Digital Assets directly from Moon Inc.
7.1 Prices; Availability. All prices reflect the exchange rates applicable to the purchase of Digital Assets using the Legal Tender or alternative form of Digital Assets identified in your purchase order.

7.2 Purchase Quotes. Prior to completing your purchase of Digital Assets from Moon Inc., we will provide notice of the amount of Digital Assets you intend to purchase and the amount of Funds you will be required to pay to Moon Inc. to receive such Digital Assets or Legal Tender.

7.3 Errors.

7.7 Redemption Expiration. You acknowledge and agree to provide your bitcoin wallet address and complete the bitcoin redemption process within 2 business days (Mon-Fri) from time PIN is purchased or the time the store payment is made. * Note: PINs are not available for purchase or redemption in New York State.

The exchange rate (as set by us), store fees, and miner fees (as set by us) may be changed without notice. Miner fees will fluctuate due to changing network conditions and will be subtracted from bitcoin purchased. You will receive electronic receipts, which detail all fees charged for every transaction. Exchange rates quoted in wallets are sometimes not indicative of exchange rates that the average consumer can secure.

ANTI-MONEY LAUNDERING AND IDENTITY VERIFICATION POLICY
Last updated: June 3, 2020
Moon Inc. (“Moon” or the “Company”) Anti-Money Laundering (“AML”) Policy and Identity Verification Policy (collectively the “AML Policy”) is designed to articulate Moon’s commitment to detecting, preventing and reporting attempts to use its financial services platform to illegally launder money, to finance illegal activities such as terrorism and drug trafficking, or to commit fraud.
Moon Inc. offers a financial services platform through our website, machines and retail stores (the “Service”) that allows people to buy currencies, including math-based currencies such as bitcoin (“exchange services”).
Moon Inc. recognizes that decentralized and distributed digital asset and payment systems in which payments are processed and secured by advanced cryptography and distributed computing power instead of a central bank, corporation or gove. believes, however, that the legitimate use of math-based asset networks provide untold benefits and efficiencies within the global economy. Accordingly, Moon has implemented this Policy and its accompanying AML Program to assess the specific risks posed by Moon’s innovative services and established specific controls to address those risks as required by law.
It is Moon’s policy to comply with applicable laws and regulations regarding AML and identity verification, and to detect and prevent the use of its Service for money laundering or to facilitate criminal or terrorist activities. While Moon Inc. is committed to protecting its users’ privacy, it will not allow people to use its Services to launder money, commit fraud or other financial crimes, finance terrorist activities, or facilitate other illegal conduct.
Moon Inc. reserves the right to refuse registration to persons from or in jurisdictions that do not meet international AML standards or could be considered as a Politically Exposed Person.
Moon Inc. reserves the right to verify our users and their transactions. In addition to this, any attempt to abuse Moon Inc. or its platform will result in an immediate account suspension.
The Moon AML and KYC policies per regional jurisdiction are as follows:
Registered members from all regions and jurisdictions are required to verify their identities, prior to being authorized to perform any transaction involving fiat currency. Suspicious transactions will result in a Suspicious Activity Report being submitted to the relevant regulatory and compliance bodies applicable in the registered members’ verified country of origin.
