26        Jurisdiction-specific Legal Disclosures


CryptoSmartlife maintains licenses and registrations in certain jurisdictions to provide you our Services. These licenses or registrations may impact our provision and your use of our Services depending on where you live or are domiciled. Information regarding CryptoSmartlife’s licenses and registrations, or lack thereof, and corresponding disclosures (“Disclosures”) can be found on the Platforms. These Disclosures are incorporated into these Terms by reference. By creating a CryptoSmartlife Account, you acknowledge that you have read, understand and agree to the applicable Disclosures.

27        Disclosure Statement

27.1        We are furnishing this statement to you to provide some basic facts about purchasing Digital Assets and to alert you to the risks involved with trading Digital Assets. Before trading Digital Assets, you should carefully review this disclosure statement. Please contact us through support regarding any questions or concerns you may have with your margin accounts.

27.2        When you purchase new Digital Assets for existing Digital Asset or vice versa, you may pay in full with your own Funds or by posting the Digital Assets in your CryptoSmartlife Account as collateral, with funds (stakes) provided by CryptoSmartlife to you. If the collateral supporting your transaction declines in value by an amount specified by CryptoSmartlife, you authorize CryptoSmartlife to issue a margin call and/or sell the assets in your CryptoSmartlife Account, in order to maintain the minimum margin requirement.

27.3        It is important that you fully understand the unique risks involved in transacting in Digital Assets before determining whether such trading is appropriate for you. These risks include the following:

27.3.1         Using digital asset to support spot transactions poses a high degree of financial risk and is not suitable for everyone. The use of leverage can work against you as well as for you and can lead to large losses as well as gains. You should examine your financial objectives, financial resources and risk tolerance to determine whether receiving Digital Assets against the assets in your CryptoSmartlife Account is appropriate for you.

27.3.2         You can rapidly lose all of the Funds you deposit for trading and may lose more Funds than you deposit in your CryptoSmartlife Account. The prices of Digital Assets are highly volatile and a decline in the value of assets that are purchased or sold may require you to provide additional funds to us, on short notice or with no notice, to avoid the automatic liquidation of assets in your account(s).

27.3.3         You authorize us to sell assets in your CryptoSmartlife Account without further notice to you. If the equity in your CryptoSmartlife Account  falls below our margin requirements to offer you Digital Assets, you authorize CryptoSmartlife to sell assets in your CryptoSmartlife Account  to cover the deficiency. You will be responsible for any shortfall in the CryptoSmartlife Account  after such a sale. As Digital Asset markets are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, calls and liquidations may occur at any time, including outside of normal business hours.

27.3.4         You authorize us to sell your assets without contacting you. We will attempt to notify you of transaction calls, but we are not required to do so specifically other than what is shown to you on screen during the transaction of the Digital Asset. Moreover, even if we have contacted you and provided a specific date by which you must meet a transaction balance, we may still immediately sell assets in your CryptoSmartlife Account without notice to you and without waiting for the specific date to meet a requirement.

27.3.5         We can increase maintenance requirements with advance notice. The maintenance requirements may result in the issuance of a maintenance call. Your failure to satisfy the call may cause us to liquidate or sell assets in your CryptoSmartlife Account. We are not responsible for delays in the release of Funds intended to satisfy the call, including but not limited to internal holds on Funds exceeding verification limits, delays in the transfer of Funds from Financial Accounts, and failure of proper routing of funds through financial networks. The Funds will not count towards meeting the maintenance requirements until the Funds are released.
