As a Money Service Business (“MSB”) registered with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (“FinCEN”), we have certain duties to know our clients, keep records of the transactions, employ an Anti-Money Laundering (“AML”) Compliance Program, and have a dedicated Compliance Officer to monitor the transactions. We perform audits and tests of the veracity of our program and have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to compliance. If you violate any portion of our compliance requirements, we reserve the right, at any time and for any reason, without explanation, to terminate your ability to use our services.
We collect and record certain information from every customer that completes a transaction. Depending on the size of the transaction and the nature of our relationship, we collect:
- Your First and Last Name
- SMS Phone Verification;
- A copy of your Driver’s License or government issued identification card;
- If required, your Social Security Number or Taxpayer Identification Number.
We leverage this information to perform OFAC and other watchlist screening of all customers and we file Currency Transaction Reports (“CTRs”) if a customer transacts over $10,000 worth of fiat currency in a rolling 24-hour period.
You authorize us, directly or through third parties, to make any inquiries we consider necessary to validate your identity. This may include asking you for further information, requiring you to provide a taxpayer identification number, requiring you to take steps to confirm ownership of your email address or financial instruments, ordering a credit report, or verifying your Information against third party databases or through other sources. Prior to your use of the Services, you must provide all information we request. You acknowledge that we will analyze and validate your identity to determine whether you qualify to perform a transaction (“Verification Process”). Your use of the Services may be delayed during the Verification Process, and we disclaim responsibility for any loss, delay or other harm relating to the delay or denial. If you do not pass the Verification Process, or if you fail to provide any of the information required to perform a transaction, you may be denied access to the Services. If you believe your access to the Services has been wrongly denied, please contact us.
You acknowledge that BudgetCoinz is not responsible for the risks associated with cryptocurrency purchases, and you voluntarily assume and accept such risks in deciding to engage in cryptocurrency transactions at our BTM kiosks.
If you choose, or are provided with, a username, password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any other person or entity. You also agree to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. You should use particular caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information.
We have the right to disable any username, password or other identifier, whether chosen by you or provided by us, at any time in our sole discretion for any or no reason, including if, in our opinion, you have violated any provision of these Terms.
