Accounts

A Bitcoin Suisse AG Account ("Account" or "Accounts") is an Account held by an "Account Holder" with the specific objective of exchanging cryptocurrencies (like Bitcoin, Ethereum or Bitcoin Cash) and fiat currency through the Bitcoin Suisse AG platform. An "Account Holder" can be any natural person or legal entity who enters into an agreement with Bitcoin Suisse AG under these Terms of Use. The Terms of Use and other stipulations it refers to (such as Privacy Policy and AML Policy) relate to all rights and obligations arising from the use of this Site and the services. Each natural person or legal entity wishing to register as an Account Holder is advised to read these Terms of Use carefully and understand them before final acceptance. These Terms of Use apply as long as the respective Account is accessible through the platform. By Creating an Account to use the Bitcoin Suisse AG services, Account Holders represent and warrant:


You can buy and sell cryptocurrencies after creating an account and verification through Bitcoin Suisse AG. It also gives you a 'one-click' ordering method, which speeds up the process and helps avoiding errors (such as making a mistake when typing the cryptocurrency address of your private wallet). Your account is only used for these purposes.
A new Account can be created by any natural person or legal entity with an e-mail address, a cryptocurrency wallet and a CHF or Euro bank account in the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA). Before an Account is activated it will be validated by Bitcoin Suisse AG (check for correct e-mail address, cryptocurrency address and bank account). Together with the Account Code (a unique alphanumeric code which identifies the Account) these details are considered the "Account Details".

Conditions

Services

Our services consist of facilitating the buying and selling of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoins, Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash. Bitcoin Suisse AG does not keep or manage any cryptocurrency wallets and/or Bank deposits. The services we provide are regulated under Swiss jurisdiction. It is our policy to comply with applicable laws and regulations regarding AML and identity verification (know your customer / KYC procedures), and to detect and prevent the use of our services for money laundering or to facilitate criminal or terrorist activities. Accordingly, the Company has implemented an Anti-Money Laundering and Identity Verification Policy: AML Policy.
For the avoidance of doubt we do not provide any investment advice in connection with the services contemplated by these Terms of Use. We may provide information on the price, range, volatility of cryptocurrencies and events that have affected the price of these, but this is not considered investment advice and should not be construed as such. Any decision to purchase or sell cryptocurrencies is your decision and we will not be liable for any loss suffered.
Bitcoin Suisse AG is a stand-alone cryptocurrencies exchange business, where you deal directly with Bitcoin Suisse AG (as opposed to an exchange market where you deal directly with other buyers and sellers). The costs for a transaction through the Bitcoin Suisse AG platform consist of a service fee and a bank fee. These fees are clearly specified on the Buy and Sell pages and are presented well in advance of initiating your order. Cryptocurrencies are digital non-returnable and non-refundable products for which you lose your right of withdrawal. Bitcoin Suisse AG is an exchange for European consumers (individuals) and is in principle not obliged to make an invoice.
