To do so, the Client needs to provide all the necessary information requested by Fipto, including but not limited to (i) information on the destination of the funds ( Client’s Payment Account or external Client’s IBAN), (ii) the amount (“Requested Payment Amount”) and (iii) the expiration date (“Payment Link Expiration Date”). Once the Payment Link is created, the Client may send it to its External Counterpart. 

15.5. The External Counterpart, by clicking on the Payment Link received from the Client may (i) select the Digital Asset he wishes to use and (ii) Confirm the price proposed by Fipto for the selected Digital Asset . Then, it may proceed with the payment.

15.9.4. The External Counterpart, once the Digital Assets have been selected and confirmed, will have 15 minutes to trigger the payment on its own platform.

15.9.5. If the External Counterpart sends less than the Requested Payment Amount or later than the Payment Link Expiration Date, the payment will be refused and sent back to the External Counterpart’s wallet used to proceed the payment. In this case, a 10 EUR fee will be applied.

Fipto may unilaterally modify the T&Cs with respect to the technical aspects of the Platform as long as this does not result in an increase in price or an alteration in the quality and characteristics to which the Client's commitment is conditional.

In the event of a substantial change to the T&Cs, Clients will be informed of changes by any means within five (5) days prior to the new version coming into force and will be invited to accept the new version on the Platform.

In this case, if the Clients do not agree with the modified version of the T&Cs, they should stop using the Services and terminate the T&Cs according to the conditions set out in Section 19. The non-termination or continued access to the Services after the effective date or notice period of any amendment or updates will constitute an acceptance of the amended T&Cs.

Acceptance of the risks inherent in the Services

Access to the Service requires a thorough understanding of blockchain technologies, Digital Assets and digital wallets, as well as a good knowledge of the Digital Assets market. If Clients have any doubts and/or additional questions about the operation of the Services and the associated risks, they are invited to contact Fipto by sending a letter to the e-mail address indicated on the first page. If they do not understand how these technologies work, Clients should refrain from using the Services.

By accepting these T&Cs, the Client warrants that he/she is aware of the consequences and risks associated with the digital assets sector and blockchain technologies, which are described below.

Availability risk

We do not guarantee that the Fipto Services will be available at any particular time or that Fipto services will not be subject to unplanned service outages or network congestion. It may not be possible for you to buy, sell, store, transfer, send or receive Digital Assets or fiat when you wish to do so.

Technological risk (security)

Clients must be aware of the technical risks associated with the Service, which include in particular the risks arising from an error or security flaw associated with the blockchain, which may result in a loss of data or a loss of access to their Digital Assets.

This technological risk may result from an error or security flaw associated with the blockchain, enabling and/or leading to hacking and data theft from the Platform, including, but not limited to, sybil attacks, smurfing-type malware attacks, or other new methods known or unknown.

Economic risk (volatility)

Clients must be aware of the economic risks associated with the Service. They acknowledge that the Digital Asset markets are decentralized and unregulated.

The Service is not suitable for many Clients and represents a high level of risk of loss of capital, particularly due to the extreme volatility of the markets.

Consequently, although the risk of loss does not exceed the amount invested, Clients undertake not to invest funds that they cannot afford to lose. Furthermore, they acknowledge that past performance is no indication of future performance, which may go down as well as up.

Legal and regulatory risk

Clients are informed that the legal framework for Digital Assets varies according to the jurisdiction in which they are located and that Digital Assets may be prohibited or subject to a regulatory framework that could cause their value to fall significantly or completely.

Clients must be aware of the risk resulting from the absence of regulation and the subsequent absence of any guarantee associated with this type of asset on regulated markets.

In addition, the Platform is subject to AML/CFT requirements, which may change in the future. Any such change could result in additional obligations being imposed on Fipto and thus limit the effective use of the Services.

Finally, future legislation and case law could also have an impact on the existence and legality of Digital Assets and associated technologies.

Creation of an Account

In order to access the Services provided by Fipto, the Client must open a Client Account on the Platform.

To benefit from the Services available on the Platform, a Payment Account held in a Partner’s books is opened in each Client's name. 

Unless specifically authorized, Clients may not create more than one Client Account.

Client Accounts are created upon Client request, and are validated at Fipto’s sole discretion.

Payment Accounts are validated at the Partner’s sole discretion. Clients must comply with the procedure regarding the opening and functioning of the Payment Account as described in the Partner’s contract.

Clients agree to provide all information required by Fipto and its Partners to open a Client Account and a Payment Account, including information required under AML/CFT requirements.

Fipto will refuse Client Account creation and access to the Service if the Client does not provide the required information, if the information provided is incomplete or inaccurate, or for any other legal reason. This refusal will not give rise to any damages to the benefit of the Client.

The Client expressly declares that he/she has the capacity and/or has received the authorisations required to use the Services provided by Fipto and guarantees Fipto against any liability resulting from a false declaration.

Account Security

The Client is responsible for access to and use of the Client Account and must make strictly personal use of his/her login information (identifier and password) and implement a strong authentication procedure (two-factor authentication method).

The Client must under no circumstances disclose his/her login details to any third-party. 

If the Client has reason to believe that their login information has been lost, stolen, misappropriated or compromised in any way, or in the event of unauthorized use of their Client Account and Services, they must immediately notify Fipto by email at contact@fipto.com.

In the absence of such notification, any use of the Client Account or Services is deemed to have been made by the Client.

Following such notification, and/or in the presence of a potential or proven threat to the security or confidentiality of the Client's data, the Client authorizes Fipto to take all appropriate measures to prevent unauthorized access. In this regard, Fipto may require that the password and identifier be reset or suspend access to the Client Account.

Fipto may not be held liable for errors in the Client’s information, loss or theft of a password by the Client, or the resulting usurpation of the Client Account.

Account blocking

By Fipto

Fipto may temporarily suspend Client Account and access to Services under the conditions defined in Section 22.

Fipto may permanently terminate Client Account and access to Services under the conditions set out in Section 23.

In such cases, Fipto reserves the right to apply penalties and management fees to the Client and/or to claim damages in case of a breach.

The blocking of a Client Account will automatically result in the blocking of the Payment Account belonging to the same Client.

Clients affected by the suspension or deletion will be notified of the measure without delay and by any means. The blocking of the Client Account will not give rise to any damages to the Client.

By the Client

The Client may at any time request to be deregistered by e-mail to contact@fipto.com, subject to any contradictory provisions in the subscription to the Services.

The definitive deletion of Accounts irreversibly deletes the Client's data, subject to the retention of data and information required by AML/CFT regulations, pursuant to article L.561-12 of the French Monetary and Financial Code.

Upon request of deletion of the Client’s Account, if the Client’s Wallet has a positive balance, the Client may either: 

Provide Fipto with an External Wallet address to transfer the Digital Assets from the Internal Wallet; or

Sell the remaining Digital Assets for legal tenders, for transfer on his/her bank account.

Fipto may not be held liable under any circumstances for the loss of data or Digital Assets resulting from an error or a fault of the Client during the suspension or deletion of the Client's Account.

Subscribing to the Service

Pricing

The various Services offered by Fipto, as well as the various prerequisites and pricing conditions associated with each offer, are available on the pricing page of the Platform and upon request at contact@fipto.com.

In the event of unavailability of a Service after payment by the Client, Fipto will inform the Client as soon as possible in order to cancel the order and refund the payment made in this regard.

Any default or delay in payment will automatically result in the invoicing of €40 (inc. VAT) for processing fees. Amounts owed by the Client will bear interest at a rate of 10% per annum until full payment, even in the event of termination of the T&Cs. Fipto reserves the right to set off any definite, liquid and payable claim it may have against the sums owed to the Client.

Transactions

Once the funds have been received by Fipto, the Client may place Orders corresponding to the desired Transactions. To this end, the Client authorizes Fipto to execute, in the Client's name and on the Client's behalf, buy, sell, exchange or transfer Orders placed as part of the Services to which the Client subscribes.

This mandate will be automatically terminated if the subscription is not renewed by the Client or if the Client Account is blocked or deleted.

Fipto reserves the right to carry out in-depth analysis (including the destination of funds) and to refuse Transactions for any security or legal reasons.

Description of the Services

The Services offered by Fipto are detailed on the Platform and summarized in the Sections below. 

The Digital Assets supported by the Services are detailed on the following page: https://docs.fipto.com/reference/supported-assets-1

Fipto may modify the list of Services offered at any time, in particular for legal or security reasons. 

In particular, the list of Digital Assets offered, available on the Platform, may change at any time. Fipto may also cease to provide a Service on one or more given Digital Assets. 

In such a case, Fipto will inform Clients by any means, as soon as possible, and will enable Clients to withdraw their Digital Assets to their External Wallet, convert them to other Digital Assets still supported by the Services, or convert them into Euros.

Amendments of the Services will not give rise to any compensation to Clients, in particular, Fipto cannot be held responsible for the loss of value of Digital Assets at the time of their sale/exchange, nor for the loss of Digital Assets if they have not been sold prior to their write-off.

Internal Wallet 

Upon subscription to the Services, Clients will be able to: 

Transfer Digital Assets from an External Wallet to their Internal Wallet; 

Withdraw Digital Assets from their Internal Wallet to their External Wallet; and 

Store the Digital Assets purchased or converted through the Platform on their Internal Wallet.

Clients expressly authorize Fipto to manage the Digital Assets held in custody on their Internal Wallet, for the entire duration of the custody, in order to perform the obligations under the T&Cs.

Fipto will only manage the Digital Assets held in custody with the Client’s express consent. 

Fipto uses the services of a Partner for the technical infrastructure of the Internal Wallets (Fireblocks). Fipto is fully responsible for any defect or default of Fireblocks affecting the Client’s Internal Wallet and undertakes to compensate the Client for any loss resulting from it.

As stated in above, Fipto assumes no responsibility for any loss, damage or consequence, financial or otherwise, caused by the non compliant or unauthorized use of your Internal Wallet and Account credentials.

Fipto assumes no responsibility for fluctuations in or loss of value of Digital Assets.

Fipto will hold the Digital Assets in custody in the Internal Wallet until the Client expressly asks for their restitution or until termination of the T&Cs.

Upon request of restitution or termination of the T&Cs, Fipto will either, at the discretion of the Client, transfer the Digital Assets on the Client’s External Wallet or will convert the Digital Assets into Euros for transfer on the Client’s bank account.

Before any access or transaction from a Wallet, Clients may have to provide 2-factor authentication in order to secure the access and/or the transaction. According to the transaction details, further information and validation may be required by Fipto. 

Fipto will return the funds in the best delays, except in the event for which Fipto is not accountable, such as when:

- The Client’s Account has been blocked, suspended or closed for any reasons related to Fipto’s AML/CFT obligations;

- Fitpo must perform verifications, in particular linked to AML/CFT obligations;

- A competent authority refuses the restitution;

- An event independent of Fipto’s operations occurs, such as a problem inherent in the operation of the underlying blockchain or smart contract.

In such cases, the delay in the restitution of the Client’s Digital Assets will not give rise to any compensation.

Fipto has put in place an appropriate organization to minimize the risk of loss of Client's Digital Assets or the rights related to these digital assets, due to abuse or fraud of these Digital Assets, deficient administration, erroneous registration or negligence. Furthermore, in order to prevent any catastrophe that might occur to the Digital Assets stored, Fipto has put in place a set of security measures provided by the Partner Fireblocks. More information on Fipto’s custody policy can be required by the Client.

Execution of a Conversion

On the Platform, the Clients may request and proceed to the following Conversions:

- Cryptos/Cryptos Conversions,

- Cryptos/Fiat Conversions ; 

- Fiat/Fiat currency(ies) Conversions. 

A Client is able to request, through the Platform, a quote to Fipto in order to execute a Conversion. After receiving the Request For Quote (RFQ), Fipto will contact the Client by phone in order to : 

- Validate the RFQ ; 

- Propose the price of the Digital Asset or Fiat to pay in order to execute the Conversion requested. The Price of the Digital Asset or Fiat is fixed and communicated by the Client Representative to the Client during the phone call with the Client. 

If the Client agrees on the price communicated during the phone conversation, Fipto will execute the trade. The Client Representative, in charge of the Conversion, will validate the Conversion during the phone call. 

Once the conversion is executed, the Client will receive the amount on its Client Account minus the Conversion fee as described in the Pricing Conditions. 

Conversion Conditions : 

- The Client is the sole decision-maker of his Conversion, he is free to cancel his Request for Quote or his Conversion before its validation. This cancellation will be free of charge, except for possible Intervention Fees in case of abuse or inappropriate behavior by the Client.

- The Client needs to have or create at least one Internal Wallet for the Digital Assets he wants to trade before clicking on “Request a Quote”. 

- The Client needs to have enough funds in the Internal Wallet of the Digital Asset he wants to sell / exchange before clicking on “Request a Quote”. 

- The Client can use the Conversion service subject to complying with the minimum and maximum limits set by Fipto for example for certain Conversions and for certain types of Digital Assets. These limits are detailed on the Platform subject to change at any time. Fipto will make its best efforts to inform the Clients of such change before they come into force.

- The Conversion may be done only during business hours and when a Client Representative is available. 

- Fipto reserves the right not to execute or respond to any request made, any Order sent or confirmed by any means (Platform, email, telephone, etc.) outside of normal business hours.

The Client is informed that his conversations with Fipto, during the execution of the Conversion, is recorded and may be listened to by Fipto for evidentiary purposes, fraud detection and/or to be studied in order to improve the quality of the Service. For more information on the personal data protection framework, please refer to the Data Protection Notice available on the Platform. 

Right of withdrawal

In application of article L.221-3 of the French consumer code, Clients may not benefit from a right of withdrawal since the purpose of the Services necessarily falls within the scope of the professional activity of the Client. 

However, if the Client was canvassed by phone or by email, he has a period of fourteen calendar days in which to exercise his right of withdrawal, without having to justify his decision or pay any penalties.

In compliance with the French consumer code, the right of withdrawal does not apply to the crypto/crypto, crypto/fiat or fiat/crypto Conversions since the value of Digital Assets depends on fluctuations of the market outside of Fipto’s control

For the other Services, the period during which the right of withdrawal may be exercised begins to run from the day on which the T&Cs are signed.

The Client is informed that, if he requires the execution of the Service before the end of the withdrawal period, and exercises his right of withdrawal, he will be required to pay the price corresponding to the use of the Service actually provided between the date of execution and the date of exercise of the right of withdrawal.

Fipto will reimburse to the Client, as soon as possible and within thirty days at the latest, all sums received, with the exception of the amount mentioned above. The reimbursement period begins on the day Fipto receives notification from the Client of his wish to withdraw.

Fipto does not guarantee continuous or uninterrupted access to the Services. Consequently, it cannot be held liable for any act or omission, non-performance, partial performance or delay in performance of its obligations in connection with damage or loss suffered directly or indirectly by the Client resulting from factors beyond the reasonable control of Fipto.

Clients are informed that Fipto may occasionally interrupt access to all or part of the Services in the conditions set out in section 22.
