Please read these terms and conditions that follow (“Terms”) carefully as they form a contract between you and BitGo, Inc. (“BitGo”, “we”, “our” or “us” ). These Terms govern your access and use of our Services. “Services” refers individually and collectively to the BitGo website, BitGo platform, APIs, mobile applications (each, an ““App”), and any software services provided by BitGo, as well as all written or electronic materials including software, data, text, audio, video, images, photos, graphics, or other content (“Content”). These Terms refer to the individual or entity using the Service (including any component of the Service) as “you” or “your”.
By accepting these Terms electronically (for example, clicking “I Agree”), accessing or using the Services, purchasing Services, registering for an account with us, executing these Terms, or accepting an Order that references these Terms, you are accepting and agreeing to these Terms and the policies and guidelines referenced in these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms then you may not use the Services.
We will notify you of amendments to these Terms by either: (a) posting the revised terms on our website; (b) sending you an email notification to the email address that you provided to us as part of your account registration, or a notification via SMS or other messaging service; or (c) presenting the revised Terms to you when you log into the Services. It is your responsibility to provide and update your external email address, check for such notices, and make sure our notices have not been trapped by your spam filter. It is your responsibility to periodically revisit these Terms as posted on our website. The such updated Terms will become effective the earlier of: (a) when you accept it online or offline, (b) twenty (20) days after we post or email the update, in which case your continued use of any of the Services or failure to cancel your account will indicate your acceptance of the amendment.
THESE TERMS REQUIRE THE USE OF ARBITRATION TO RESOLVE DISPUTES ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR ON RESOLUTION BY CLASS ACTION, AS FURTHER DESCRIBED IN SECTION 8.
1. Digital Assets and the Service
1.1 About Digital Assets.
The Service does not send or receive money. As a bitcoin wallet, the Service enables you to interface with the bitcoin network to view and transmit information about a public cryptographic key commonly referred to as a bitcoin address – sometimes referred to herein as a “bitcoin account”. To transmit information about a bitcoin account to the bitcoin network, the private key(s) corresponding with the bitcoin account is required. The Service requires three private cryptographic keys to be associated with each bitcoin account and BitGo controls only one of these private keys. Two of the three private keys associated with a bitcoin wallet are needed to effect a “transfer” of bitcoin from a bitcoin account (i.e., disassociate bitcoin from one bitcoin wallet and re-associate bitcoin with another bitcoin wallet). Once the bitcoin network recognizes the information you send from the Service and validates it, the information is broadcasted to other individuals and companies in the bitcoin network and the Service cannot be used by you to cancel or reverse bitcoin-to-bitcoin transactions. The same is true for other cryptocurrency and digital assets for which we provide wallets (“Digital Asset”) including (as of the last update of these Terms) Bitcoin, Ether, Ripple, and Litecoin, [depending on what wallet services the customer has ordered from BitGo.]
1.2 Digital Asset Protocols and Network Fees.
BitGo does not own or control the underlying software protocols which govern the operation of Digital Currencies. Digital Asset protocols are subject to changes in protocol rules (referred to as “forks”), and such forks may materially affect the value, function, or name of the Digital Asset. You acknowledge and agree (i) that BitGo is not responsible for operation of the underlying Digital Asset protocols and that BitGo makes no guarantee of their functionality, security, or availability; and (ii) if a fork occurs, BitGo may temporarily suspend the Services relating to the Digital Asset affected, and BitGo may decide not to support the forked protocol entirely or may configure its Services to enable you to transfer the affected Digital Asset.
1.3 Managing Your Keys.
BitGo controls only one of the three private keys for a Digital Asset wallet provided by the Service. You are solely responsible for maintaining the security of the other two private keys. If you appoint a third party to control one or more of your private key(s), whether or not such appointment is made through the Service (e.g., through a key recovery service), BitGo is not responsible for the actions or omissions of such third party. Control of these keys will allow such third party to transfer all of your Digital Assets from your wallets and you may never regain those Digital Assets.
1.4 Wallets and Digital Assets.
Your wallets and your Digital Assets are your responsibility. BitGo cannot cause transactions transferring Digital Assets from your wallets except in conjunction with a request or instruction through the Service by you or someone holding your private keys. You may need both of the private keys not controlled by BitGo to initiate transfer of Digital Assets.
1.5 Passwords and Security.
You are responsible for maintaining adequate security and control of any and all log in IDs, passwords, private keys, personal identification numbers (PINs), and any other codes that you use to access the Service. You will be solely responsible for the private keys that we provide to you or that you generate for our wallets, and maintaining secure back-ups. You will prevent unauthorized access to or use of the Services using your account credentials or private keys, and notify us promptly of any such unauthorized access or use. You must keep your account ID, passwords and any other account credentials confidential and not authorize any third party to access or use the Service on your behalf, unless we provide an approved mechanism for such use. You will notify us at [email protected] of any security breach of your account, system or network as soon as possible. You will cooperate with us in the investigation of any suspected unauthorized access to or use of the Services using your account credentials or private keys, and any security breach of your account, system, or network, and provide us with the results of any third-party forensic investigation that you undertake. You will be responsible, and BitGo will have no liability, for all activity that takes place with your BitGo Service account accessed using your account credentials, whether or not authorized by you.
1.6 Identity Authentication.
You must be at least 18 years old, or such higher age required by applicable law, to register for a BitGo Service account. You will provide BitGo and its affiliates with accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as prompted by the registration process or as BitGo may, from time to time request, and keep such information updated. You authorize BitGo to make such inquiries that it considers necessary to validate your identity and you agree that BitGo may do so using third party service providers.
1.7 Non-BitGo Applications.
The Services may contain features designed to interoperate with a third party service, program, website or Content that is provided, owned or licensed by you or a third party (“Non-BitGo Application”). To use such features, you must procure Non-BitGo Applications from the providers of such Non-BitGo Applications, and may be required to grant us access to your account on the Non-BitGo Applications. If you enable a Non-BitGo Application for use with the Services, you grant us permission to allow the provider of that Non-BitGo Application to access your information and End User Data as required for the interoperation of that Non-BitGo Application with the Services. We are not responsible for any disclosure, modification or deletion of Content or End User Data resulting from access by a Non-BitGo Application. If the provider of a Non-BitGo Application ceases to make the Non-BitGo Application available for interoperation with the corresponding Services features on reasonable terms, we may cease providing those Services features without entitling you to any refund, credit, or other compensation.
1.8 Third Party Services.
In connection with your use of the Services, you may be made aware of or offered services, Content, features, products, Non-BitGo Applications, offers and promotions provided by third parties (individually and collectively, “Third Party Services”). We may make Third Party Services available to you. However, our inclusion or promotion of Third Party Services does not reflect a sponsorship, endorsement, approval, investigation, verification, certification or monitoring of such Third Party Services by BitGo. Your acquisition of Third Party Services, and any exchange of data between you and any non-BitGo provider, is solely between you and such provider. BitGo does not warrant Third Party Services in any way. Under no circumstances will we have any liability for Third Party Services. Use Third Party Services at your own risk, and under terms and conditions between you and the provider of Third Party Services that are different than the provisions of these Terms.
Our fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, for example, value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction whatsoever (collectively, “Taxes”). You are responsible for paying all Taxes associated with your purchases hereunder. If we have the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which you are responsible, we will invoice you and you will pay that amount unless you provide us with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. For clarity, we are solely responsible for Taxes assessable against us based on our income, property and employees (“BitGo Taxes”). If applicable law requires you to withhold BitGo Taxes from your payment(s) to BitGo, you will provide reasonable assistance to BitGo in connection with such BitGo Taxes by: (a) promptly providing BitGo with valid tax receipts and other required documentation evidencing your payment of such BitGo Taxes; and (ii) assisting BitGo in filing applications to reduce such BitGo Taxes.
You acknowledge that using Digital Assets, their networks and protocols, involves serious risks. It is your duty to learn about all the risks involved with Digital Assets, their protocols and networks. There are many, and describing these risks could fill chapters of a book. For example, the value of Digital Assets can change rapidly, increase or decrease unexpectedly, and potentially even fall to zero. For example, a bitcoin transaction may be unconfirmed for a period of time (usually less than one hour, but up to one day or longer) and may be never complete if it remains in a pending state. Further, if you send ERC 20 tokens to your ether wallet that does not support ERC 20 tokens, your tokens will be lost entirely and will not be recoverable. Even if BitGo alerts you to some of the risks involved with Digital Assets, their protocols and networks, BitGo has no responsibility to alert you to all these risks. BitGo has no control over, and makes no representations regarding the value of Digital Assets, or the security of their networks or protocols.
1.11 BitGo Instant Transactions.
“BitGo Instant” means the service provided by BitGo whereby BitGo verifies that a transfer of Bitcoin from a wallet is not a “double-spend” before the transaction is confirmed by the Bitcoin network. BitGo provides BitGo Instant as a Service to certain of its customers that order it. If you wish to receive Bitcoin with the benefit of BitGo Instant, you will need to enter into BitGo’s separate written agreement for that benefit. Otherwise, you may not rely a Bitcoin transmission as verified by BitGo Instant, and BitGo does not make any guaranty, warranty, or other promise to you about double-spending.

7.3 THESE LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS ALSO APPLY IF THIS REMEDY DOES NOT FULLY COMPENSATE YOU FOR ANY LOSSES OR FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
7.4 Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages. To the extent that you reside in a jurisdiction where applicable law does not permit BitGo to limit its liability to the extent set forth in Section 7.1, 7.2 or 7.3, then such limitations may not apply to you.
8.1 YOU AND BITGO AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE, CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR ANY OF THE SERVICES (INCLUDING THE BREACH, TERMINATION, ENFORCEMENT, INTERPRETATION OR VALIDITY THEREOF, INCLUDING THE DETERMINATION OF THE SCOPE OR APPLICABILITY OF THESE TERMS TO ARBITRATE) SHALL BE DETERMINED BY BINDING ARBITRATION INSTEAD OF IN COURTS OF GENERAL JURISDICTION. The language to be used in the arbitral proceedings will be English. You agree that you and BitGo are each waiving the right to a trial by jury and to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive any termination of other terms.
8.2 The arbitrator shall not have the power to award damages that are limited or waived by these Terms (such as punitive damages, treble damages, or any other damages which are not compensatory), to the extent such limitation or waiver is permitted under applicable law, and the parties waive any right to recover any such damages. Further, the arbitrator shall have no power to issue any award that is contrary to or inconsistent with any applicable statute, case law or constitutional law, to modify, change or excuse performance of any material term of these Terms, or to award equitable relief. The arbitration proceedings and decision of the arbitrator shall be kept confidential (and may not be disclosed) by the parties or the arbitrator, except to the extent necessary to compel any award made by the arbitrator.

8.4 The arbitration hearings will take place in Palo Alto, California.
8.5 YOU AND BITGO AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.

8.6 Notwithstanding any other provision in this Section 8 to the contrary, either party will at all times be entitled to seek and obtain injunctive relief from infringement or threatened infringement of its intellectual property rights, or misappropriation of its trade secrets, in any court having jurisdiction. Each party agrees that notice of arbitration may be serviced by written notice as provided by Section 11.1.
9. Choice of Law and Alternate Forum.
These Terms shall be governed by, subject to, and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the state of California, and the federal laws of the U.S.A., each without regard to conflict of laws principles. The parties agree that these Terms and the transactions contemplated therein shall not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. If arbitration cannot be compelled under Section 8, then the parties (a) hereby irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of, and venue in, any federal or state court of competent jurisdiction located in Santa Clara County, California for the purposes of adjudicating any action or proceeding to enforce these Terms, and (b) each party waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any objection that it may now or later have to such venue and any claim that any such action or proceeding brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum.

11.2 Entire Agreement
11.3 Statute of Limitations
Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of a breach of these Terms or your use of the Service must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. This limitation will not apply to misappropriation or infringement of intellectual property rights.
11.4. Independent Contractors.
No third-party beneficiaries; Assignment. BitGo and you are not legal partners or agents of each other; instead, our relationship is that of independent contractors. This contract is solely for your and our benefit. It is not for the benefit of any other person, except for permitted successors. You may not assign or delegate these Terms, your obligations, rights or responsibilities. Any attempt by you to do so is void. BitGo may assign or delegate these Terms, its obligations, rights and responsibilities, in whole or in part, at any time with or without notice to you.
11.5 Government Use.
If you are a U.S. government entity, you acknowledge that any software and documentation that are provided are “Commercial Items” as defined at 48 C.F.R. 2.101, and are being provided as commercial computer software subject to the restricted rights described in 48 C.F.R. 2.101 and 12.212.
11.6 Savings Clause.
If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitrator to be invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree that the court or arbitrator should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect. If the court or arbitrator cannot do so, then the parties agree that the court or arbitrator should strike the invalid or unenforceable provisions, and that the remaining provisions be given their full force and effect.
11.7 Company Use.
If you are using the Service on behalf of an organization, you are agreeing to these Terms for that organization and promising to BitGo that you have the authority to bind that organization to these Terms (in which event, “you” and “your” will refer to that organization). Nevertheless, each individual that uses the Service or accepts these Terms on behalf of an organization agrees that the permissions given to BitGo under these Terms, and the restrictions and limitations to the rights of persons and entities using the Service, apply to each such individual. You may use the Service only in compliance with these Terms and only if you have the power to form a contract with BitGo and are not barred under any applicable laws from doing so.
The word “or” as used in these Terms has the meaning equivalent to “and/or”. The terms ‘include’ and ‘including’ will be deemed to be immediately followed by the phrase “without limitation”. These Terms do not confer any rights or benefits to any third party beneficiaries. The headings appearing at the beginning of sections have been inserted for identification and reference purposes only and must not be used to construe or interpret these Terms. The word “will” expresses an obligation equivalent to “shall”. These Terms will not be construed in favor of or against any party by reason of the extent to which any party participated in the preparation of these Terms. We each agree to contract in the English language. No failure or delay by either party in exercising any right under these Terms will constitute a waiver of that right.
