2. Description of Services
Our Services consist in providing you the possibility to enter into transactions for the purchase or sale of digital assets available on the Website.

In certain cases, you cannot submit an order unless you register a Personal account. You have 5 minutes to complete your order and transfer funds, otherwise, your order will be automatically recalculated to reflect the updated exchange rate at the moment of order completion. You agree to pay Service fees for our Service. We are entitled to review from time to time Service fees at our own discretion.
We retain the right to redirect you to a platform or website maintained by a third party outside of the Website. Although we enforce strict price accuracy policies for all fiat onramps and providers and do our best to ensure that the information displayed on or via our Website is up-to-date and accurate, we cannot guarantee the reliability or accuracy of third party Services. If you encounter any problems with any third party Services available via Alfacash, you acknowledge that you should resolve that issue with the relevant third party or fiat provider and that your sole remedy in such circumstances lies within the relevant third party and not within Alfacash.
You may be charged additional fees charged by the third party service provider. Successful completion of your transaction may depend on necessary KYC checks, your country of residence, and chosen payment method. You are solely responsible for your use of the third-party service, and you agree to comply with all terms and conditions applicable to any third party service. If you have any questions regarding your transactions, please contact your bank card issuer or trade widget provider directly.

Cryptocurrency transactions are irreversible, if you send cryptocurrency to a third party, you cannot reverse it or stop payment. When you send cryptocurrency to a blockchain address, you confirm ownership of this address and hold us harmless from any claims and actions. Please note that only owning a private key can prove your ownership of a bitcoin address, but at the same time you cannot give away your private key since anybody with access to it can spend your funds.
Please be careful of any kind of (1) technical support or impersonation scams (e.g. never give out your 2FA, never give support staff (or anyone else for that matter) remote access to your devices, etc. (2) giveaway scams (any giveaways that we offer will direct you to our official websites) (3) investment scams (send cryptocurrency to trusted third parties only and be sceptical of websites or services promising unrealistic investment opportunities) (4) extortion scams (run a precautionary malware scan on your computer using a reputable tool) (5) loader scams (do not cooperate with fraudsters who use stolen credit cards on compromised accounts to perpetuate payment frauds) (6) Telegram scams (we have only one official Telegram channel, all others are fake) (7) phishing scams (always make sure that our official website domain name is written correctly). Please report any of the abovementioned fraudulent practices to [email protected] or contact local enforcement authorities.
Taxation of digital assets has very limited or no regulation by governmental and tax agencies in most jurisdictions. You may be subject to certain tax implications when buying or selling digital assets.
It is your responsibility to determine what taxes apply to the transactions and accounts you utilize as a part of the Services, and it is your responsibility to collect, report and remit the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority. We are not responsible for determining whether taxes apply to your transaction, or for collecting, reporting, or remitting any taxes arising from any transaction. You warrant that you are acting legally in accordance with any applicable international, federal, state, or local tax laws or regulations.
We encourage you to frequently review and rely on guidance issued by competent authorities for taxpayers who engage in transactions involving virtual currency. For tax purposes, exchange of virtual currency may be treated as supply of service, sale of property or exchange of foreign currency. General tax principles applicable to these types of operations may apply to transactions using virtual currency.
We are not giving tax advice by allowing you to use our Services.

We take all appropriate measures and implement the best standards to comply with all applicable laws and regulations regarding Anti-Money Laundering ("AML"). We will make reasonable efforts to detect and prevent people engaged in any criminal activity in any jurisdiction from using our Services.

While we may delegate day-to-day operational duties to the third party service provider (i.e. for effective risk management in selected jurisdictions), the responsibilities for maintaining effective oversight and governance of outsourcing arrangements, managing outsourcing risks, and implementing an adequate outsourcing risk management framework, continue to rest with the Company and its senior management.
Virtual currencies are digital assets, transactions (either completed or pending) of which are irreversible by the nature of the technology itself. You acknowledge that exchange rates are highly volatile within the virtual currencies market, what makes the refund mechanism sometimes impossible for both parties. Virtual currencies sent to incorrect addresses are considered lost and cannot be retrieved from within the blockchain. You acknowledge that Alfacash is not responsible for any risks associated with the transactions within the blockchain.
Basically, all funds (either virtual currencies or fiat) traded through the Alfacash are not eligible for a refund. Once you initiate a transaction with a digital asset, we fix the exchange rate and process the transaction, so you cannot cancel it at any time.
In exceptional cases, we may consider your refund request and decide at its own discretion in 5 working days. These exceptional cases are limited to serious payment delays, errors that occurred solely due to incorrect functioning of Alfacash website, or any guilty actions of third parties. Please note that in such cases Alfacash will deduct all applicable costs and fees related to the refund. You acknowledge and agree that there is a respective fee that Alfacash will charge accordingly for each refund which is 5% in addition to any external fees.
Refund requests must be submitted within 5 working days of completing the original funding. To request a refund, you should send us an email to [email protected] and indicate your transaction details. All refund requests will be processed using the same payment method as the original funding.

You shall indemnify Alfacash and our agents (if any), employees, officers, directors, affiliates, subsidiaries, and successors, and hold them harmless from and against all third-party claims except those resulting solely from our breach of the Terms.
We shall not be liable for any delay or failure in the performance or in the delivery or shipment of digital assets, or for any damages suffered by you by reason of such delay or failures, directly or indirectly caused by or in any manner arising from or connected with acts of God, acts of public enemies, riots, strikes, acts of governmental agencies, failure of power supply, telecommunications or other suppliers, delays in securing or shortages of raw materials, breakdown or destruction of any system or equipment or any other cause or causes beyond our control of any kind.
Alfacash takes all possible measures to integrate and exchange those digital assets that cannot be classified as "security" by competent national authorities.
