Terms of Service
Last updated: July 16, 2018
Welcome to Coinspring. Coinspring provides a cryptocurrency platform (as modified from time to time, the “Platform”) that allows users (collectively, “Customers” or “you”) to invest in Bitcoin and Ethereum via automatic “round ups”, recurring deposits and/or manual one-time deposits. Coinspring also offers a mobile application UDAX (“UDAX”) that allows users to manage their GDAX / Coinbase Pro account via API Keys. This application is not affiliated with Coinbase. The websites at www.getcoinspring.com (the “Site”), www.udax.app, the web-based and mobile applications (collectively, the “Applications”) and the various other related content, services, features, functions, software, applications, websites and networks (together with the Platform, the Site and the Applications, collectively, the “Coinspring Services”) are provided and operated, and are being made available to you, other Customers and the other users of any of the Coinspring Services (collectively, “Users”) by Coinspring Inc. (“Coinspring”, “we” “our” or “us”). All defined terms used herein shall have the meanings prescribed to these terms in these Terms of Service.
These Terms contain an Arbitration provision which will, with limited exception, require you to submit disputes you have against Coinspring to binding and final arbitration. You will only be permitted to pursue claims against Coinspring on an individual basis, not as a plaintiff or class member in any class or representative action or proceeding; and you will only be permitted to seek relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) on an individual basis.
To access and use the Site, the Platform, the Applications and the other Coinspring Services, you and each of the other Users must be at least 18 years of age. By accessing or using the Platform or the Applications, clicking the “I Agree” button or by downloading, installing or otherwise accessing or using any of the Coinspring Services, you represent that:
3.1 LICENSE GRANT.
Subject to your compliance with all of the terms and conditions set out in these Terms, Coinspring hereby grants to you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, freely revocable license (a) to install and use the Applications on your computer and mobile and other devices and (b) to access and use the Platform, the Applications and the other Coinspring Services to the extent and in accordance with these Terms.
Our web-based Applications is automatically updated by Coinspring. You will be notified of updates to the mobile-based Applications from the app store from which you downloaded the Applications (the “App Store”). You may be able to adjust your device’s settings or take other actions that would allow automatic updates from your applicable App Store.
3.2 PREVENTION OF UNAUTHORIZED USE.
Coinspring reserves the right to exercise whatever lawful means it deems necessary to prevent unauthorized use of the Platform, the Applications or any of the other Coinspring Services, including, but not limited to, technological barriers, IP mapping, and directly contacting your Internet Service Provider (ISP) regarding such unauthorized use.
4.1 CRYPTOCURRENCY INVESTMENT
Coinspring is a crypto-currency platform that allows users to invest in Bitcoin and Ethereum. These investments may be made through automatic “round ups” of credit card payments, recurring deposits, or manual one-time deposits.
YOU WILL NOT HAVE DIRECT ACCESS TO ANY CRYPTOCURRENCY IN YOUR ACCOUNT. Coinspring is not a cryptocurrency exchange. Coinspring does not transfer cryptocurrency to you nor do you have access to the cryptocurrency wallets in which our cryptocurrency assets are stored. For example, if you make a USD deposit of $X into your bank account, we buy $X (minus our fee) of Bitcoin and Ethereum (at a mix of your choosing) once you’re your payment clears, and then allocate that amount of virtual currency to your portfolio. When you want to cash out assets in your portfolio, you initiate a withdrawal for some amount of virtual currency (less than or equal to the balance in their portfolio). We then sell the specified amount of virtual currency in our possession, and transfer the USD proceeds from the sale to your US-based checking account minus our fee.
We also allow users to reallocate their portfolio’s mix between Bitcoin and Ethereum without having to withdraw funds (there are still tax implications for you, but the process has the benefit of being almost instantaneous).
4.2 ACCOUNTS AND BANK ACCOUNTS.
To access and use the Platform, Customers must create an account. When creating an account, you will be required (a) to provide us certain information such as your e-mail address, (b) to create a password and (c) to provide us with the details of your US bank account that will be linked to your account (the “Bank Account”). You may only have one Bank Account linked to your account at any time. You may also provide any number of credit and/or debit card for “round-up” transactions.
Your Bank Account and the related information will be verified by an independent third party (as changed from time to time, the “Account Verifier”). You may not use the Platform until your Bank Account has been verified. Each time you change your Bank Account, it will need be verified by the Account Verifier. The current Bank Verifier is Plaid. Coinspring reserves the right to change the Account Verifier in its sole discretion without notice.
We may also use the Account Verifier to aggregate your transaction data in order to properly calculate the “round up.”
(a) Transaction Fees. Coinspring charges a fee of 1% of the value of the transaction (as modified from time to time, (the “Fee”). The Fee is charged each time you make an investment, sell an investment or when you reallocate your portfolio’s mix between Bitcoin and Ethereum.
(b) Payments. The Fees shall be paid as follows:
Unless otherwise agreed by Coinspring, all payments made through the Platform shall be made through a third-party payment processor directed by Coinspring (e.g., SynapseFI, etc.) (any such third-party payment processor, the “Payment Processor”). Payment processing services for Customers and the other Users, are currently provided by SynapseFI and are subject to the SnynapseFI Terms of Service (as modified from time to time, collectively, the “SynapseFI ToS”). By agreeing to these Terms or continuing to use any of the Coinspring Services, you agree to be bound by the SnynapseFI ToS. As a condition of Coinspring’s enabling payment processing services through a Payment Processor, you agree to provide Coinspring accurate and complete information about you, your business, your credit or debit card or bank account and such other information required by the Payment Processor, and you authorize Coinspring to share it and any relevant transaction information related to your use of the payment processing services provided by the Payment Processor.
(c) Modification to the Fees. Subject to Section 9, Coinspring may modify the Fees and any other fees in connection with the Platform, the Applications and any of the other Coinspring Services in its sole discretion.
(d) Taxes. To the extent that any sales or other similar taxes are payable by Coinspring, or any Payment Processor in connection with the Platform, the Customer shall be obligated to pay to Coinspring, or any such Payment Processor, the amount of such taxes in addition to any other amounts owing to Coinspring.
(e) Future Services. In paying any of the Fees, you acknowledge and agree that you are not relying on future availability of the Platform, the Applications or any of the other Coinspring Services.
(f) Non-refundable. ALL FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE, NON-CANCELLABLE AND NON-CREDITABLE UNLESS REQUIRED BY LAW OR A TRANSACTION FAILS TO EXECUTE, OR AS OTHERWISE SPECIFICALLY PROVIDED IN THESE TERMS OR THE SITE OR AGREED BY COINSPRING IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION.

If you change or deactivate the email that you used to create a Coinspring account, you must update your account information within 72 hours to prevent us from sending to someone else messages intended for you.
If at any time you have reason to believe that your account is no longer secure (e.g., in the event of a loss, theft or unauthorized disclosure or use of your account ID, password, or any payment information, if applicable), then you shall immediately notify Coinspring at email@example.com. You may be liable for the losses incurred by Coinspring or others due to any unauthorized use of your account or any of the Coinspring Services.
Coinspring reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of these Terms at any time by posting the amended Terms to the Site or otherwise through the Coinspring Services. If Coinspring updates these Terms, it will update the “last updated” date at the top of the Terms. Please check these Terms, including any Policies, periodically for changes. Your continued use of the Platform after the posting of changes constitutes your binding acceptance of such changes. In the event that a change to these Terms materially modifies your rights or obligations (including applicable Fees), Coinspring will make reasonable efforts to notify you of such change. Coinspring may provide notice through a pop-up or banner within any of the Coinspring Services, by sending an email to any address you may have used to register for an account, or through other similar mechanisms. Additionally, if the changed Terms materially modify your rights or obligations, Coinspring may require you to provide consent by accepting the changed Terms. If Coinspring requires your acceptance of the changed Terms, changes are effective only after your acceptance. For all other changes, except as stated elsewhere by Coinspring, such amended Terms or fees will automatically be effective, replacing the previously-effective Terms or fees, thirty (30) days after they are initially posted on any of the Coinspring Services. IF AT ANY TIME YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, PLEASE IMMEDIATELY TERMINATE YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM AND ALL OF THE OTHER COINSPRING SERVICES.
