As used herein, "happyCOINS" refers to the company Digital Currency Services B.V., including without limitation thereby, its owners, directors, investors, employees or other related parties. Digital Currency Services B.V. is a company with limited liability, incorporated under the laws of the Netherlands. Depending upon context, "happyCOINS" may also refer to the Services, products, Site, content or other materials (collectively, "Materials") provided by happyCOINS.
A happyCOINS Account ("Account" or "Accounts") is an Account held by an "Account Holder" with the specific objective of exchanging digital currency (like bitcoin) and fiat currency through the happyCOINS platform.
By Creating an Account to use the happyCOINS Services, Account Holders represent and warrant:
You can buy digital currencies and sell digital currencies in a few minutes after creating a happyCOINS account. happyCOINS works with accounts to provide you with additional security. It also gives you a 'one-click' ordering method, which speeds up the process and helps avoiding errors (such as making a mistake when typing the digital currency address of your private wallet). Your account is only used for these purposes.
A new Account can be created by any natural person or legal entity with an e-mail address, a digital currency wallet and an Euro bank account in the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA). Before an Account is activated it will be validated by happyCOINS (check for correct e-mail address, digital currency address and bank account). Together with the Account Code (a unique alphanumeric code which identifies the Account) these details are considered the "Account Details".
Our Services consist of facilitating the buying and selling of digital currencies such as Bitcoins and their use to purchase goods in an international open payment system. happyCOINS does not keep or manage any digital currency wallets and/or Euro deposits. The Services we provide are currently unregulated in The Netherlands. However, it is our policy to comply with applicable laws and regulations regarding AML and identity verification (know your customer / KYC procedures), and to detect and prevent the use of our Services for money laundering or to facilitate criminal or terrorist activities. Accordingly, the Company has implemented an Anti-Money Laundering and Identity Verification Policy: AML Policy.
happyCOINS is a stand-alone digital currency exchange business, where you deal directly with happyCOINS (as opposed to an exchange market where you deal directly with other buyers and sellers). The costs for a transaction through the happyCOINS platform consist of a service fee and a bank fee. These fees are clearly specified on the Buy and Sell pages and are presented well in advance of initiating your order. Digital currencies such as Bitcoins are a digital non-returnable and non-refundable product for which you lose your right of withdrawal. happyCOINS is an exchange for European consumers (individuals) and is in principle not obliged to make an invoice.
happyCOINS supports various international online instant payment services.
When buying digital currency by SEPA bank transfer, you acknowledge and agree to accept:
