You are authorized to conduct trade and transactions via your account only.
The sole responsibility for maintaining the security of your personal identification number(s) (PIN), password(s) and other identification data which you use to access your Cryptometre account is yours. You must therefore exercise caution and dutiful care to secure this information and prevent unauthorized access of your account. You agree to follow our password policy and advice with relation to changing passwords and keeping them secure, and restrict access to yourself only. You also agree to change your password regularly, enable dual authentication on your account, and notify us of any unauthorized or unusual activities on your account immediately.
You are prohibited from selling, borrowing, disposing of, sharing or otherwise making available your account or any aspect of your account to any person or entity other than you.
You are prohibited from using your account to act as a broker or intermediary for any other persons or entities.
You are prohibited from listing or entering fraudulent or misleading information onto your account, including without limitation phone numbers that are not personal or do not belong to you, misleading reputation information, incorrect country of origin details, or forged or otherwise incorrect identification information. It is your sole responsibility to update your personal details as and when changes occur.
You must open an account with Cryptometre in order to make use of the Services. When opening an account, you must provide us with contact information which includes your full name, physical address, email address (hereafter termed as “Registered Email”), telephone number and, if relevant to the business you conduct, details of your website. All information provided must be done so accurately and in completion, and if changes to said information occur, we must be informed promptly. It is a requirement of your use of our Services that the information we hold for you is correct, complete, and up-to-date. You can inform of us any changes to your details by email at [email address].
In the event that we determine your account to be higher-risk, or it falls into our higher volume category, we reserve the right to request further information from you for the purposes of due diligence assessment before agreeing to open your account. Additional information we request may include without limitation extra ID documents, proof of physical address and bank statements. If you are opening a business account, we may request information relating to your directors, shareholders or any other ultimate beneficial owners of your business, and also any documentation relevant to the permits, licenses and authorizations your business possesses.
When registering your account, you are required to enter a registered email address and a password. You must keep this information, and any other access credentials, confidential and secure at all times, and they must not be shared with any other persons or entities. You must not allow any other party to use your account. You must not use your account from a public computer or other shared electronic device.
Your password will expire automatically ninety days after creation, after which point you are required to enter a new and unique password before regaining access to your account. This process will repeat each ninety-day period after selection of a new password.
We do not allow changes to be made to your Registered Email, therefore it is essential that you keep this email address open. We will never ask you to give us your password or email credentials. Therefore, never respond to any such request.
In order to make use of some aspects of the Services, including without limitation transfer of Bitcoin and/or other currencies, we may require you to provide us with personal information details, including without limitation your full name, physical address, email address, contact telephone number, date of birth, copy of passport, copy of utility bills or other acceptable proof of physical address, taxpayer identification number, and information relating to your bank account (for example the type of account, account number, routing number and name of the institution). We may also require that you answer questions or take other action to confirm your identity so that we may provide you with the Services, or comply with our responsibilities under Applicable Law.

It is a requirement to perform Time-Based-One-Time (hereafter termed “TOTP”) as a two-factor authentication procedure (hereafter termed “2FA Procedure”) for any withdrawal or transfer of Crypto Currency. Accordingly, we have fully implemented secure wallet storage, and provide 2FA Procedure for you.
In the event that five consecutive failed attempts are made to log in to your account (hereafter termed the “First Lock Up Period”), your account will automatically be locked for thirty minutes.
