In consideration of Snowball Finance, Inc and its agents and assigns (collectively, “Snowball”, “you”, or “your”) opening an account on my behalf (“my Snowball Account” or the “Snowball Account”), I represent and agree to the terms set forth below (the “Agreement”). When used in this Agreement, the words “I”, “me”, or “my” mean the owner of the Account.
I understand that the terms and conditions of this Agreement govern all aspects of my relationship with Snowball regarding my Snowball Account. I will carefully read and accept the terms and conditions of this Agreement before I click “Submit Application” or other similarly worded button below. I understand that clicking “Submit Application” or other similarly worded button is the legal equivalent of my manually signing this Agreement and I will be legally bound by its terms and conditions in their entirety. I also understand that by clicking “Submit Application” or similarly worded button, I have acknowledged that this Agreement contains an arbitration clause in Section 19. By entering into this Agreement, I acknowledge receipt of the Snowball Privacy at https://www.snowball.money.
I am at least 18 years old and have the legal capacity to enter into this Agreement. No person, except myself, has any interest in the Snowball Account opened pursuant to this Agreement.
I understand that this Agreement may be amended from time to time by Snowball, with revised terms posted on https://www.snowball.money I agree to check for updates to this Agreement. I understand that by logging into my Snowball Account or continuing to maintain my Snowball Account without objecting to any revised terms of this Agreement, I am accepting the terms of the revised agreement and will be legally bound by its terms and conditions. I understand that I should therefore read this Agreement from time to time and that my affirmative assent to its terms, as amended, may be requested of me as a condition of logging into my Snowball Account. I understand that if I do not agree to be legally bound by this Agreement and all of its terms and conditions (as amended from time to time), I should not log into my Snowball Account. If I request other services provided by Snowball that require me to agree to specific terms and conditions electronically (through clicks or other actions) or otherwise, such terms and conditions will be deemed an amendment and will be incorporated into and made part of this Agreement.
1. Snowball Crypto Service.
a) Snowball Account. I understand that the Snowball Account allows me to place spot purchase and sale orders for certain digital assets such as bitcoins and ethers supported on the Snowball mobile application (such digital assets, “Cryptocurrencies”). I further agree and acknowledge that my use of my Snowball Account and the Snowball Services is and shall be only for my personal, non-commercial purpose.
b) Absence of FDIC or SIPC Protection. Snowball is not a broker-dealer of any kind and is not a member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) or the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (“SIPC”). I understand that my Cryptocurrency investments are not protected by Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) or SIPC insurance, or any other insurance.
c) Custody. I understand that my assets will be held with a “qualified custodian.” Generally, most assets are held with Prime Trust, LLC. (“Prime Trust”) which is operating as a qualified custodian for these purposes. However, due to the requirements of the exchanges and limitations of transferability of certain crypto assets, I further understand, that for brief periods of time, assets will be held in accounts on these exchanges and not with the Custodian.
d) Rebates and Pass-On of Fees. I understand that Snowball reserves the right to pass on any fees charged by any Cryptocurrency exchanges, brokers, market-makers, liquidity providers, or other types of Cryptocurrency counterparties, trading venues, or intermediaries (each, a “Market Actor”), including in connection with the withdrawal of Cryptocurrencies to an external wallet or any fees related to any enhanced due diligence related to my Snowball Account. I further understand that Snowball may receive activity-based rebates from Market Actors in relation to Cryptocurrency transactions.
e) Authorization to Snowball. I understand that my Snowball Account is self-directed. Accordingly, I appoint you as my agent for the purpose of carrying out my directions to you in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. You are authorized to open or close my Snowball Account, place and withdraw orders, and take such other steps as are reasonable to carry out my directions. All transactions will be affected only on my order or the order of my authorized delegate, except as otherwise expressly described in this Agreement. My use of my Snowball Account or my grant of access to my Snowball Account to any third party is solely at my risk.
f) Fees. I understand that Snowball’s fee structure is subject to change and the current fee structure that Snowball charges users consist of a asset based Fee of 1.5% on portfolio construction (Entry); asset based Fee of 0.5% on Rebalance; asset based Fee of 1.5% on reallocation (Exit); instant deposit Fee of 1%.
g) Position and Transaction Limits. I understand that my use of the Snowball Service is subject to a limit on volume (in USD terms) that I may transact in a given time period. Such limits may vary, at Snowball’s sole discretion, depending on a variety of factors, and Snowball may apply higher limits to certain customers at its sole election. Snowball will make the transaction and position limits applicable to my use of the Snowball Service available upon request.
2. Cryptocurrency Networks and Forks.
I understand that you do not own or control the software, protocols, or databases underlying the Cryptocurrency networks and other digital asset networks and that you make no guarantees regarding the security, functionality, or availability of such networks. In general, the underlying software, protocols, and databases are public and open source, and anyone can use, copy, modify, and distribute them. I further understand that third parties may from time to time create a copy of a Cryptocurrency network and then implement changes in operating rules or other features (“Forks”) that may result in more than one version (each, a “Forked Network”), and that such Forks may materially affect the value of the Cryptocurrencies or other digital assets I hold. In the event of a Fork, I agree and understand that you may temporarily suspend the Snowball Services without advance notice to me while you determine in your sole discretion which Forked Networks to support. I FURTHER AGREE AND UNDERSTAND THAT YOU MAY DETERMINE, IN YOUR SOLE DISCRETION, NOT TO SUPPORT A FORKED NETWORK AND THAT I HAVE NO RIGHT, CLAIM, OR OTHER PRIVILEGE TO ANY CRYPTOCURRENCY OR OTHER DIGITAL ASSET ON SUCH UNSUPPORTED FORKED NETWORK (“FORKED ASSETS”). I UNDERSTAND THAT YOU MAY, IN YOUR SOLE DISCRETION, DETERMINE THE APPROACH TO SUCH FORKED ASSETS, WHICH APPROACH MAY INCLUDE ABANDONING OR OTHERWISE ELECTING NOT TO SUPPORT SUCH FORKED ASSETS AS PART OF THE Snowball SERVICES. I FURTHER AGREE AND UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE UNLIKELY TO SUPPORT MOST FORKED NETWORKS AND THAT MOST FORKED ASSETS WILL LIKELY NOT BE MADE AVAILABLE TO ME. I understand that the supply of Forked Assets available to you as part of the Snowball Services and your ability to deliver Forked Assets resulting from a forked network may depend on third parties that are outside of your control. I further understand and agree that you and your Affiliates shall not be liable for (i) the software, protocols, or databases underlying the Cryptocurrencies (or other digital asset) and associated networks, (ii) any change in the value of any Cryptocurrency or other digital asset (whether associated with a Fork or otherwise), or (iii) any decision regarding supporting or not supporting any Cryptocurrency or other digital asset, including a Forked Asset.
3. My Snowball Account.
a) Account Access and Potential Fraudulent Events. I understand that I am only permitted to access my Snowball Account using my Snowball Account login credentials and other required forms of authentication. I am solely responsible for keeping my username and password (“Login Credentials”) to the Snowball Platform and my Snowball Account number confidential and secure. I agree and accept full responsibility for monitoring and safeguarding my Snowball Account. I agree to immediately notify you in writing, delivered via e-mail and a recognized international delivery service, if I become aware of: (i) any loss, theft, or unauthorized use of my Login Credentials or my Snowball Account number; (ii) any failure by me to receive any communication from you indicating that an order was received, executed or cancelled, as applicable; (iii) any failure by me to receive an accurate written confirmation of an execution; (iv) any receipt by me of confirmation of an order, execution or cancellation, that I did not place; (v) any inaccurate information in or relating to my Snowball Account balances, deposits, withdrawals, Cryptocurrency positions, or transaction history; or (vi) any other unauthorized use or access of my Snowball Account or other suspicious activity. Each of the events described in the preceding subsections (i)-(vi) shall be deemed a “Potential Fraudulent Event”. The use and storage of any information including my Snowball Account numbers, Login Credentials, portfolio information, transaction activity, account balances, and any other information or orders available on my wireless, web-enabled cellular telephone or similar wireless communications device (collectively, “Mobile Device”) or my personal computer is at my own risk and is my sole responsibility. I am and will be solely responsible for, have authorized, and will authorize all orders or instructions appearing in, originating from, or associated with my Snowball Account, Snowball Account number, and Login Credentials. I agree to notify you immediately after I discover any Potential Fraudulent Event, but in no event more than twenty-four (24) hours following discovery. Upon request by you, I agree to report any Potential Fraudulent Event promptly to legal authorities and provide you a copy of any report prepared by such legal authorities. I agree to cooperate fully with the legal authorities and you in any investigation of any Potential Fraudulent Event and I will complete any required affidavits promptly, accurately and thoroughly. I also agree to allow you access to my Mobile Device, my computer, and my network in connection with your investigation of any Potential Fraudulent Event. I understand that if I fail to do any of these things, I may encounter delays in regaining access to the funds in my Snowball Account. I agree to indemnify and hold you, any entities controlled by, controlling, or under common control with you (such entity, an “Affiliate”), and your and your Affiliates’ respective officers and employees harmless from and against any Losses arising out of or relating to my failure to comply with any of my above obligations relating to any Potential Fraudulent Event. I understand and acknowledge that you are not responsible for any unauthorized use of my Snowball Account.
b) Multi-Factor Authentication. I understand that, at your discretion, I may be required to use at least two (2) forms of authentication when accessing my Snowball Account and performing certain operations in my Snowball Account. Forms of multi-factor authentication in addition to my Login Credentials may include verification tokens delivered through SMS or a specified and supported two- factor authentication (“2FA”) application. If I choose to install and use a 2FA application on a device, I understand that I do so at my own risk, including the risk that the operating system has been tampered with in any way. Snowball reserves the right in Snowball’s sole discretion to prohibit access from or by any device, including one on which the operating system has been or is suspected of having been modified or tampered with. I agree that you may provide my 2FA data to a third-party service provider in order to help authenticate me.
c) Account Review and Acknowledgment. I understand that I will receive trade confirmation emails from you after a trade that I have placed is executed. I understand that it is my sole responsibility to review my transaction history, trade confirmations, and any notices from Snowball or its Affiliates promptly upon receipt, and that my Account Documents (as defined in Section 18(e)) available through the Snowball Platform will evidence all activity in my Snowball Account for the stated period. I waive any right to dispute any transaction unless I notify you of any objections within two calendar days from the date trade confirmations are sent, and Account Documents will be considered binding on me unless I notify you of any objections within ten calendar days after such records are posted on the Snowball Platform. In all cases, you reserve the right to determine the validity of my objection. If I object to a transaction for any reason, I understand and agree that I am obligated to take action to limit any losses that may result from such transaction or I will bear sole responsibility for any losses relating to the transaction, even if my objection to the transaction is ultimately determined to be valid. I agree that it is my sole responsibility to review my trade confirmations on a regular basis in order to meet the period set forth above. I understand and agree that for the purposes of review and acknowledgment, I agree to be deemed to have reviewed my transaction history and all notices on at least a monthly basis. If for any reason I am unable to do so, or I do not receive your or your Affiliates’ communications, it is my responsibility to contact email@example.com and notify you immediately.
d) Account Restriction or Closure. I understand that you may, in your discretion and at any time, prohibit or restrict the trading of Cryptocurrencies in my Snowball Account. I further understand that either you or I may close my Snowball Account or deactivate or block access to my Snowball Account at any time and for any reason. Closing an account will not affect any rights and obligations incurred prior to the date of account closure. If there is a Cryptocurrency balance remaining in my Snowball Account, I agree to provide you with a Cryptocurrency address upon providing you notice of closure, or within seven calendar days of receiving written notice of closure from you, so that you can return the remaining Cryptocurrency to me. If I fail to do so, I hereby agree that you are permitted to sell any remaining Cryptocurrency on the open market at the prevailing market price and return the proceeds (less fees, costs, expenses, charges, obligations (including, but not limited to, attorney and court fees or transfer costs of funds or Cryptocurrencies), and damages) to any valid bank account linked to my Snowball Account. In the event that the costs of closing my Snowball Account exceeds the value in my Snowball Account, I will be responsible for reimbursing you. I will remain liable to you for all obligations incurred in my Snowball Account, pursuant to this Agreement, or otherwise, whether arising before or after closure of my Snowball Account or termination of this Agreement.
e) Account Suspension and Investigation. I acknowledge and agree that you have the right to immediately (i) cause my Snowball Account or, to the extent permitted by the customer agreement with such Affiliate any other account I may now or in the future have with an Affiliate (such account, an “Affiliated Account”) to be suspended, (ii) cause the funds and assets in my Snowball Account and any Affiliated Account to be frozen, and (iii) investigate my Snowball Account, until a determination has been made, if (A) you suspect, in your sole discretion, any such accounts to be in violation of this Agreement, your Anti-Money Laundering (“AML”) program or that of any of your Affiliates, any applicable laws or regulations, or the Snowball Code of Conduct; (B) you or any of your Affiliates are required to do so by a government or regulatory authority, court order, or facially valid subpoena; (C) my Snowball Account or any Affiliated Account is subject to any pending litigation, investigation, or governmental proceeding; (D) my Snowball Account has a negative balance; (E) my ACH deposit was returned to my bank; (F) you believe that there is unusual activity in my Snowball Account or suspect that I am using Snowball, my Login Credentials, or other account information in an unauthorized or inappropriate manner; or (G) I have not accessed my Snowball Account in two (2) years of more. Snowball will provide me with notice of any such suspension of my Snowball Account if legally permitted to do so.
(A) Order Types. I understand that Snowball allows the following types of orders to be placed on the Snowball Platform:
i) Market Orders. Market orders may be submitted in U.S. dollar (“USD”) amounts.
I also understand that:
(B) Snowball does not currently support sending:
a) Limit Orders. The Snowball Services does not include limit orders.
b) Margin or Options. The Snowball Services does not include margin or options trading.
c) Order Placement. I understand that all orders for the purchase of Cryptocurrencies given for my Snowball Account will be executed in reliance on my promise that an actual purchase is intended, and that you reserve the right to require full payment in cleared funds prior to the acceptance of any order. I understand that I am not permitted to place a Cryptocurrency buy order with Snowball unless I have enough funds available in my Snowball Account to satisfy my order. I further understand that I am not permitted to place a Cryptocurrency sell order with Snowball unless I have enough Cryptocurrencies available in my Snowball Account to satisfy my order. I agree that it is my responsibility to cancel any order that I do not want to be filled. I understand that I may not be able to cancel an order prior to it filling and that you are not liable to me for the completion of an order after I have submitted a cancellation request.
d) Title and Ownership. I understand that any order for Cryptocurrency that I place and that Snowball fills will result immediately in my Snowball Account being credited the amount of such Cryptocurrency and me obtaining title to such Cryptocurrency. The amount of Cryptocurrency that I purchase will be reflected on the Snowball Platform. After I obtain title to such Cryptocurrency, I may sell all or a portion of the Cryptocurrency using the Snowball Platform. Except at your direction or instruction, or as may be required by applicable law or regulation or legal order, Snowball will not loan, hypothecate, pledge, or encumber Cryptocurrency stored and held by Snowball in a Prime Trust omnibus account via Cryptocurrency wallets for the benefit of Snowball customers.
e) Order Handling. I agree and understand that Snowball does not guarantee that any order that I place will be filled. I further agree and understand that Snowball reserves the right to cancel any order or part of an order if such order was placed during a scheduled or unscheduled Snowball downtime, violates Snowball’s Code of Conduct, or is non-marketable.
f) Order Execution. I understand that the method, counterparty, broker (if any) and venue (if any) used for the execution of any order that I place shall be determined by Snowball in its sole good faith discretion.
g) Price Fluctuations. The price or amount of Cryptocurrency received is likely to differ from the quote provided on entry of an order, especially during periods of high volume, illiquidity, fast movement, or volatility in the marketplace, and I may receive partial executions of an order at different prices. I understand that Snowball is not liable for any price fluctuations. I also understand that price quotes generally are for smaller orders, and that larger orders are relatively more likely to receive executions at prices that vary from the quotes.
h) Erroneous or Fraudulent Trades or Orders. I understand that Snowball reserves the right, but has no obligation, to (i) declare a transaction null and void that Snowball considers to be erroneous or a Potential Fraud Event, or (ii) reverse a transaction on or perform offsetting transactions for my account in connection with an Erroneous Transaction or a Potential Fraudulent Event. Snowball may consider a transaction to be erroneous when its price is substantially inconsistent with the prevailing price at the time of execution (each, an “Erroneous Transaction”). I agree that I am responsible for ensuring that the appropriate price and order type are entered into the Snowball Platform when I place an order to buy or sell Cryptocurrency with Snowball. I acknowledge and agree that a simple assertion by me that a mistake was made in entering an order, or that I failed to pay attention to or update an order, shall not be sufficient to establish the order as an Erroneous Transaction or a Potential Fraudulent Event. I further acknowledge and agree that if you determine that a given transaction is an Erroneous Transaction or a Potential Fraudulent Event, (i) you may, without obligation, declare it null and void, in whole and in part, even if I do not agree to cancel or modify it, in which case I will return the Cryptocurrency or fiat currency received in the Erroneous Transaction or a Potential Fraudulent Event and (ii) you might not declare it null and void for any reason, including without limitation where the counterparty cannot be compelled to return the Cryptocurrency or fiat currency it received in the Erroneous Transaction or a Potential Fraudulent Event. I understand that, if an Erroneous Transaction or a Potential Fraudulent Event should affect my account, my account may not be made completely whole and its balance may not be restored to the amount immediately preceding the Erroneous Transaction or Potential Fraudulent Event.
5. Compliance with Applicable Laws and Regulations.
a) Customer Identification. To help the government better detect the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. Therefore, I understand that when I open my Snowball Account, you may ask for my name, address, date of birth, taxpayer identification number, and other identifying information. I hereby authorize Snowball to disclose to you and you to receive from Snowball any such information. I understand you may also ask me for copies of my driver’s license, passport, or other identifying documents. I further understand that if I attempt to access my Snowball Account from a jurisdiction subject to certain U.S. sanctions or I am ordinarily resident in such a jurisdiction, or if you reasonably believe that I am attempting such access or have become resident in such a jurisdiction, you may restrict my Snowball Account and any pending orders may be cancelled. If this happens, I understand that I should contact firstname.lastname@example.org, and that I may be asked to provide supplemental information as part of this process. I further understand that I must close my Snowball Account and my Snowball Account before establishing residency in any jurisdiction subject to U.S. sanctions.
b) Notification of Changes. I understand and agree that I am obligated to promptly notify you of any changes in such information, including my name, address, e-mail address, and telephone number.
c) Applicable Laws and Regulations. Transactions in my Snowball Account are subject to the applicable laws, regulations, and rules of federal and state governmental and regulatory authorities. In no event will Snowball be obligated to effect any transaction it believes would violate any federal or state law, rule, or regulation, or the rules or regulations of any regulatory or self-regulatory organization.
d) Background Checks. I understand that, in furtherance of your AML Program, you may require me to provide you with additional information or require me to undergo a background check prior to being authorized to use Snowball, or at any point thereafter, in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
e) Source of Funds. I agree, represent, and warrant that all funds in my Snowball Account or any Affiliated Account, or funds exchanged or to be exchanged by me in the future through Snowball or any of its Affiliates, are not the direct or indirect proceeds of any criminal or fraudulent activity. I understand that I am not allowed to receive funds in my Snowball Account or any Affiliated Account from a sender other than myself. Any funds I receive from a sender other than myself will be considered unauthorized. I understand that you reserve the right to investigate the source of any funds in my Snowball Account or any Affiliated Account and determine, in your sole discretion, how to handle their disposition. If, following review of any funds in question and the circumstances by which I received them, you determine that I am not the owner of such funds, I understand that you reserve the right to dispose of these funds in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
f) Sanctions Programs. Pursuant to the economic sanctions’ programs administered by the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”), Snowball is prohibited from providing services or entering into relationships with certain individuals and institutions. In the event that you are required to block funds associated with my Snowball Account in accordance with a sanctions program, or other similar government sanctions programs, I understand that you may: (i) suspend my Snowball Account; (ii) terminate my Snowball Account; (iii) return funds to the destination of their origin or to an account specified by authorities; or (iv) require that I withdraw funds from my Snowball Account within a certain period of time. I agree that you are not responsible for any losses, whether direct or indirect, that I may incur as a result of your good faith efforts to comply with applicable laws and regulations, the guidance or direction of any regulatory authority or government agency, or any writ of attachment, lien, levy, subpoena, warrant, or other legal order.
I agree and understand that part or all of the Snowball Platform or the Snowball Service may be periodically unavailable during scheduled maintenance or unscheduled downtime (collectively, “Downtime”). I agree and understand that Snowball is not liable or responsible to me for any inconvenience or Losses to me as a result of Downtime. Following Downtime, when services resume, I understand that the prevailing market prices may differ significantly from the prices prior to such Downtime.
7. Risks of Cryptocurrency Trading.
I represent that I have read the Snowball Crypto Risk Disclosure.
8. Customer Representations and Responsibilities.
a) Self-Directed Account. I understand that my Snowball Account is self-directed, I am solely responsible for any and all orders placed in my Snowball Account, and all orders entered by me or on my behalf are unsolicited and based on my own investment decisions or the investment decision of my duly authorized representative or agent. I agree and understand that I have not received and do not expect to receive any investment advice from you or any of your Affiliates in connection with your orders. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement, I agree and understand that you accept no responsibility whatsoever for and shall in no circumstances be liable to me in connection with, my decisions. I agree and understand that under no circumstances will your use of the Snowball Account be deemed to create a relationship that includes the provision of or tendering of investment advice. I acknowledge that neither you nor any of your employees, agents, principals, or representatives (i) provide investment advice in connection with this Snowball Account, (ii) recommend any Cryptocurrencies, transactions, or orders, or (iii) solicit orders. To the extent research materials or similar information are available through the Snowball Platform, I understand that these materials are intended for informational and educational purposes only and they do not constitute a recommendation to enter into any Cryptocurrency transactions or to engage in any investment strategies.
b) Information Accuracy. I: (i) certify that the information contained in my Snowball Account application and any other document that I furnish to you in connection with my Snowball Account or any Affiliated Account is complete, true, and correct; (ii) authorize you to contact any individual or firm noted on the documents referred to in subsection (b)(i) of this Section and any other normal sources of debit or credit information; (iii) authorize anyone so contacted to furnish such information to you as you may request; and (iv) agree that this Agreement, the account application, and any other document I furnish in connection with my Snowball Account is your property. I shall promptly advise you of any changes to the information in such agreements and documents in writing within ten calendar days. I authorize you to obtain reports and provide information to others concerning my creditworthiness and business conduct. Upon my request, you agree to provide me a copy of any report so obtained. You may retain this Agreement, the Account application, and all other such documents and their respective records at your sole discretion. I understand that you may take steps to verify the accuracy of the information I provide to you in my Snowball Account application or otherwise and that you may restrict my access to my Snowball Account or take other action you reasonably deem necessary pending such verification.
c) Commercially Reasonable Efforts. I understand that you use commercially reasonable efforts to provide me with a reliable and secure Snowball Platform. From time to time, interruptions, errors, or other deficiencies in service may occur due to a variety of factors, some of which are outside of Snowball’s control. These factors can contribute to delays, errors in service, or Downtimes. I understand that I may experience difficulties in accessing my Snowball Account, withdrawing funds or Cryptocurrencies, viewing Third-Party Information, and placing or canceling orders.
d) Unavailability of Snowball Service in Certain Jurisdictions. I agree and understand that the Snowball Service is not provided to, and may not be used by, any person in any jurisdiction where the provision or use thereof would be contrary to applicable laws and regulations. I agree to refrain from using the Snowball Service if I begin to reside in a jurisdiction where the Snowball Service would violate any of the laws and regulations of such jurisdiction. I agree that I shall not provide incorrect information about my address and will promptly inform Snowball when I establish residency in a new jurisdiction.
e) Sole Control over Account. I agree not to share my Login Credentials with any other person. I further agree not to allow any other person to trade for my Snowball Account.
f) No Tax or Legal Advice. I understand and acknowledge that Snowball does not provide tax or legal advice.
Cryptocurrencies that I purchase shall be stored and held by Snowball in one or more omnibus cryptocurrency wallets for the benefit of Snowball customers. Snowball shall track the balance and ownership of Cryptocurrencies purchased as part of the Snowball Services, and I understand that I can view the balance of Cryptocurrencies in my Snowball Account on the Snowball Platform. Snowball shall use commercially reasonable efforts to securely store the private keys associated with my Cryptocurrencies.
10. Right of Offset; Remedies for Breach.
a) Right of Offset. In the event that I fail to provide sufficient funds, have a negative USD balance in my Snowball Account or any Affiliated Accounts, have a negative Cryptocurrency balance in my Snowball Account, or have an ACH transaction returned to my bank, you, at your option and without notice to me, (i) may charge a reasonable rate of interest; (ii) may offset any negative Cryptocurrency balances in my Snowball Account by buying the necessary amount of Cryptocurrencies with the funds in your Snowball Account or any Affiliated Account to offset such negative balances; and (iii) otherwise may offset any and all debts owed to you by liquidating or otherwise transferring any assets in my Snowball Account or any Affiliated Account. You may also charge any consequential loss to my Snowball Account.
b) Remedies for Breach. I understand and agree that if you determine, in your sole discretion, that I have committed a breach or default under this Agreement, your AML Program, the Snowball Code of Conduct, or the Snowball Feed Terms of Service (such breach or default, a “Violation”), you shall have all rights and remedies available to a secured creditor under all applicable laws and in addition to the rights and remedies provided in this Agreement. I understand and agree that, in the event of one or more Violations, you may at any time, at your sole discretion and without prior notice to me: (i) prohibit or restrict my access to the use of the Snowball Platform or related services and my ability to trade, (ii) refuse to accept any of my transactions, (iii) refuse to execute any of my transactions, (iv) terminate my Snowball Account, and (v) debit from my Snowball Account or any Affiliated Account any damages suffered by you as a result of the Violation. I further acknowledge and agree that if you determine, in your sole discretion, that I have colluded, coordinated, or collaborated with any other Snowball user to commit a Violation, I and that user will be jointly and severally liable for the whole value of any damages to which you are entitled under this Agreement and any such amounts may be debited, in your sole discretion, from my Snowball Account, such other user’s account, or in each case, any Affiliated Account.
I understand and agree that, in order to send Cryptocurrencies in my Snowball Account to an external wallet that I control (such process, a “Withdrawal”), I may be required to provide proof of identity, control over bank accounts associated with my Snowball Account or Affiliated Accounts, and control over such wallet, among other information. I represent that I have sole control over any wallet to which I send Cryptocurrencies in connection with such a Withdrawal. I further understand and agree that Snowball may delay any requested Withdrawals if Snowball perceives a risk of fraud or illegal activity or if the Withdrawal otherwise violates Snowball’s AML program, and I understand that you may verify Withdrawal wallet addresses with third-party AML service providers. I understand that, once initiated on the network associated with the Cryptocurrency subject to the Withdrawal, Withdrawals will typically be processed at the speed of such network, but that in certain situations, Withdrawals may be delayed in connection with any latency, congestion, disruption, or other delay of such network. I understand that you cannot reverse a Withdrawal that has been broadcast to a Cryptocurrency network. I also understand that you reserve the right to cancel any pending Withdrawal as required by law or in response to a subpoena, court order, or other binding government order.
12. Third-Party Information.
An “Information Provider” is any company or person who directly or indirectly provides Snowball with information, including Cryptocurrency market data, quotations from Market Actors, and information that derives from any such information (“Third-Party Information”). I understand that Snowball does not guarantee that the Third-Party Information provided on the Snowball Platform is accurate, reliable, complete, timely, uninterrupted, error-free, or in the correct order. I agree that my use of the Third-Party Information is at my own risk. I understand and acknowledge that each Information Provider has a proprietary interest in the Third-Party Information that belongs to it. I understand and agree that I may use this Third-Party Information only for my own benefit. I may not reproduce, sell, distribute, circulate, create derivative works from, store, commercially exploit in any way, or provide Third-Party Information to any other person or entity without Snowball’s written consent. I understand and acknowledge that, at any time, any or all Information Providers may discontinue disseminating any category of Third-Party Information, may change or eliminate any transmission method, and may change transmission speeds or other characteristics. The Information Providers or Snowball shall not be liable for any resulting liability, loss or damages that may arise therefrom. I ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT Snowball, ITS AFFILIATES, THEIR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS AND EMPLOYEES, AND THE INFORMATION PROVIDERS WILL NOT BE LIABLE IN ANY WAY FOR (A) ANY INACCURACY, ERROR, DELAY, FAILURE, OMISSION, INTERRUPTION, OR NON-PERFORMANCE OF ANY THIRD- PARTY INFORMATION, (B) SNOWBALL’S USE, DISPLAY, OR PROVISION OF SUCH THIRD- PARTY INFORMATION, OR (C) ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE ARISING FROM OR OCCASIONED BY ANY SUCH INACCURACY, ERROR, DELAY, FAILURE, OMISSION, INTERRUPTION, OR NON-PERFORMANCE, IN ALL CASES WHETHER OR NOT ANY DAMAGES RESULTED FROM ANY NEGLIGENT ACT OR OMISSION OF ANY SUCH PARTY AND WHETHER OR NOT ANY SUCH PARTY WAS ADVISED IN ADVANCE OF THE LIKELIHOOD OF SUCH DAMAGES.
13. Effect of Attachment or Sequestration of Account.
You shall not be liable for refusing to obey any orders given by or for me with respect to my Snowball Account that has been subject to an attachment or sequestration in any legal proceeding against me, and you shall be under no obligation to contest the validity of any such attachment or sequestration.
14. Tax Reporting; Tax Withholding.
The proceeds of sale transactions will be reported to the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) in accordance with applicable law.
a) U.S. Persons. This subsection is applicable if I am a U.S. person (including a U.S. resident alien) as such term is defined in section 7701(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (“U.S. Person”). Under penalties of perjury, I certify that the taxpayer identification number that I have provided or will provide to you or any of your Affiliates in connection with an account opening (including any taxpayer identification number on any Form W-9 that I have provided or will provide) is my correct taxpayer identification number. I certify that I am not subject to backup withholding. If a correct Taxpayer Identification Number is not provided to you, I understand I may be subject to backup withholding tax at the appropriate rate on all dividends, interest, and gross proceeds paid to me. Backup withholding taxes are sent to the IRS and cannot be refunded by Snowball or any of its Affiliates. I further understand that if I waive tax withholding and fail to pay sufficient estimated taxes to the IRS, I may be subject to tax penalties.
b) Non-U.S. Persons. This subsection is applicable if I am not a U.S. Person. I certify that I fully understand all the information on any Form W-8BEN that I have submitted or will submit to you or one of your Affiliates in connection with an account opening. Under penalties of perjury, I declare that (i) I have examined all the information on any Form W-8BEN that I have submitted or will submit to you and (ii) to the best of my knowledge and belief all such information is true, correct, and complete. I authorize you or your Affiliates to provide any such Form W-8BEN to the Clearing Broker, any of your Affiliates, or any withholding agent that has control, receipt, or custody of the income of which I am the beneficial owner or any withholding agent that can disburse or make payments of the income of which I am the beneficial owner. I agree that I will submit a new Form W-8BEN to you within thirty calendar days if any certification made on any previously submitted Form W-8BEN becomes incorrect.
Snowball and I agree to attempt informal resolution of any dispute arising in connection with this Agreement, my Snowball Account, or the Snowball Services prior to any demand for adjudication of any kind and to notify each other in writing of any such dispute within thirty calendar days of when it arises. Notice to Snowball shall be sent to email@example.com. Snowball and I further agree that if we cannot solve such dispute informally, any such dispute shall be finally settled in binding arbitration, on an individual basis, in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s rules for arbitration of consumer-related disputes, and Snowball and I hereby expressly waive trial by jury and right to participate in a class action lawsuit or class-wide arbitration. The arbitration will occur, at my election, in the county of my domicile or in San Francisco, California and will be conducted confidentially by a single, neutral arbitrator. You agree to bear my attorney’s fees, costs, and expenses, provided that I agree to pay the cost of the arbitration if you are the prevailing party in the arbitration. The arbitrator may award any relief that a court of competent jurisdiction could award, including attorneys’ fees when authorized by law, and the arbitral decision may be enforced in any court. Any dispute between the parties will be governed by this Agreement and the laws of the State of California and applicable United States law, without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles that may provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction. Snowball and I further agree that the state or federal courts in San Francisco, California have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals of an arbitration award and over any suit between the parties not subject to arbitration. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section, Snowball and I retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement or misappropriation of intellectual property rights, including copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, database rights, and patents. In the event the prohibition on class arbitration or any other provision of this Section is deemed invalid or unenforceable, then I agree and understand that the remaining portions of the arbitration provisions in this Section will remain in full force and effect.
I agree to access my Snowball Account only through the Snowball Platform. Any other use is not authorized, and I agree to refrain from using any application programing interface belonging to Snowball or any of its Affiliates.
a) Electronic Signatures. I agree to transact business with you electronically. By electronically signing an application for an account, I acknowledge and agree that such electronic signature is valid evidence of my consent to be legally bound by this Agreement and such subsequent terms as may govern the use of your services. The use of an electronic version of any document fully satisfies any requirement that the document be provided to me in writing. I accept notice by electronic means as reasonable and proper notice, for the purpose of any and all laws, rules and regulations.
b) Modifications to the Agreement. I acknowledge and agree that Snowball may modify this Agreement from time to time and I agree to consult the Snowball website (the “Website”) from time to time for the most up-to-date Agreement. The electronically stored copy of this Agreement is considered to be the true, complete, valid, authentic and enforceable record of the Agreement, admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings to the same extent as if the documents and records were originally generated and maintained in printed form. I agree to not contest the admissibility or enforceability of Snowball’s electronically stored copy of the Agreement.
c) Telephone Conversations and Electronic Communications. I understand and agree that you may record and monitor any telephone or electronic communications with me. Unless otherwise agreed in writing in advance, you do not consent to the recording of telephone conversations by any third party or me. I acknowledge and understand that not all telephone or electronic communications are recorded by you, and you do not guarantee that recordings of any particular telephone or electronic communications will be retained or capable of being retrieved. I also acknowledge and agree that you maintain and retain records of all information, activity, and communications relating to my Snowball Account and use of Snowball.
d) Oral Authorization. I agree that you shall be entitled to act upon any oral instructions given by me so long as you reasonably believe such instruction was actually given by me or my authorized agent.
e) Consent to Electronic Delivery of Documents; Electronic Delivery System. By agreeing to electronic delivery, I am giving my informed consent to electronic delivery of all Account Documents, as defined below, other than those I have specifically requested to be delivered in paper form. “Account Documents” include any trade confirmations, notices, disclosures, account statements, regulatory communications (such as privacy notices), tax-related documents, and any other information, documents, data, and records regarding my Snowball Account and the Snowball Services (including amendments to this Agreement) delivered or provided to me by Snowball and any other parties. Account Documents may be sent to me at the mailing address for my Snowball Account or the email address that I have given to you in my Snowball Account application or at such other address as I may hereafter give you in writing or by email at least ten calendar days prior to delivery. All communications so sent, whether in writing or otherwise, shall be deemed given to me personally when sent or posted by or on behalf of Snowball, whether actually received or not. I agree that if you send an email to the email address on record for my Snowball Account, this constitutes “written notice” from Snowball to me, and that the date of receipt is considered to be the date of transmission. I understand that it is my sole responsibility to ensure that any emails from you or your Affiliates are not marked as SPAM. I acknowledge that your primary methods of communication with me include (A) posting information via the Snowball Platform, (B) sending email(s) to my email address of record, and (C) providing me with notice(s) that will direct me to the Snowball Platform where I can read and print such information. Unless otherwise required by law, you reserve the right to post Account Documents on the Snowball Platform without providing additional notice to me. Regardless of whether or not I receive an e-mail notification, I agree to check the Snowball Platform regularly to avoid missing any information, including time-sensitive or otherwise important communication. Additionally, I acknowledge that the Internet is not a secure network and agree that I will not send any confidential information, including Snowball Account numbers or passwords, in any unencrypted e-mails. I also understand that communications transmitted over the Internet may be accessed by unauthorized or unintended third parties and agree to hold you, your Affiliates, and your and your Affiliates’ respective officers and employees harmless for any such access regardless of the cause.
f) Responsibility to Review Account Documents. I agree to promptly and carefully review all Account Documents when they are delivered and notify Snowball in writing within ten calendar days of delivery if I object to the information provided, except that the shorter time period provided in Section 3(c) shall control in the case of trade confirmations. If I fail to object in writing within ten calendar days of delivery, Snowball is entitled to treat such information as accurate and conclusive.
g) Costs. Potential costs associated with electronic delivery of Account Documents may include charges from Internet access providers and telephone companies, and I agree to bear these costs. Snowball and its Affiliates will not charge me additional online access fees for receiving electronic delivery of Account Documents.
h) Revocation of Consent. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, I may revoke or restrict my consent to electronic delivery of Account Documents at any time by notifying Snowball in writing of my intention to do so. I also understand that I have the right to request paper delivery of any Account Document that the law requires Snowball to provide me in paper form. I understand that if I revoke or restrict my consent to electronic delivery of Account Documents or request paper delivery of same, Snowball, in its sole discretion, may charge me a reasonable service fee for the delivery of any Account Document that would otherwise be delivered to me electronically, restrict or close my Snowball Account, or terminate my access to the Snowball Service. I understand that neither my revocation or restriction of consent, my request for paper delivery, nor Snowball’s delivery of paper copies of Account Documents will affect the legal effectiveness or validity of any electronic communication provided while my consent was in effect.
i) Duration of Consent. My consent to receive electronic delivery of Account Documents will be effective immediately and will remain in effect unless and until either I or Snowball revoke it. I understand that it may take up to three business days to process a revocation of consent to electronic delivery, and that I may receive electronic notifications until such consent is processed.
j) Hardware and Software Requirements. I understand that in order to receive and download electronic deliveries, I must have access to the Internet, a valid e-mail address, and the ability to download such applications as Snowball may specify and to which I have access. I agree that I can download, save, or print any Account Documents I receive via electronic delivery for my records. I will maintain a valid e-mail address and continue to have access to the Internet.
18. Legal Process.
I acknowledge and agree that you, as well as your Affiliates, service providers, their respective officers, directors, agents, employees, and representatives (collectively, the “Snowball Representatives”), may comply with any writ of attachment, execution, garnishment, tax levy, restraining order, subpoena, warrant or other legal process, which any of such Snowball Representatives reasonably and in good faith believe to be valid. You or any Snowball Representatives may, but are not required to, notify me of such process by electronic communication. You or any Snowball Representative may charge me for associated costs, in addition to any legal process fees. I agree to indemnify, defend, and hold all of the Snowball Representatives harmless from all actions, claims, liabilities, losses, costs, attorney’s fees, or damages associated with compliance with any process relating to me or my Snowball Account that any Snowball Representative reasonably believes in good faith to be valid. I further agree that you and any Snowball Representative may honor any legal process, regardless of the method or location of service.
19. Limitation of Liabilities; Indemnification; No Warranties
a) Limitation of Liability. Except as otherwise provided by law, I understand and agree that you, the Clearing Broker, any of your Affiliates, or your, your Affiliates’, or the Clearing Broker’s respective officers, directors, employees, or agents (each such entity, an “Indemnified Party”) shall not be liable for any expenses (including legal expenses and attorneys’ fees), losses, costs, damages, liabilities, demands, debts, obligations, penalties, charges, claims, causes of action, penalties, fines, and taxes of any kind or nature (whether known or unknown, absolute or contingent, liquidated or unliquidated, direct or indirect, due or to become due, accrued or not accrued, asserted or unasserted, or otherwise) (collectively, “Losses”) by or with respect to any matters pertaining to my Snowball Account, my use of the Snowball Platform, the Snowball Services, and other services provided by the Indemnified Parties under this Agreement, except to the extent that such Losses are actual Losses and are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction or an arbitration panel in a final non-appealable judgment or order to have resulted solely from your, the Clearing Broker’s or any of your Affiliates’ gross negligence or willful misconduct. I also understand and agree that Indemnified Parties will have no responsibility or liability to me in connection with the performance or non-performance by any Market Actor or other third party (including banks) of their obligations relative to my Snowball Account. I further understand and agree that Indemnified Parties will have no liability, to me or to third parties, or responsibility whatsoever for: (i) any Losses resulting from a cause over which Indemnified Parties do not have direct control, including the failure of mechanical equipment, unauthorized access, theft, operator errors, government actions or restrictions, force majeure events, or suspension of trading; and (ii) any special, indirect, incidental, consequential, punitive, or exemplary damages (including lost profits, trading losses and damages) that I may incur in connection with my Snowball Account, my use of the Snowball Platform, the Snowball Services, and other services provided by Indemnified Parties under this Agreement. I ACCEPT ALL RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH THE USE OF Snowball TO CONDUCT TRANSACTIONS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IN CONNECTION WITH THE FAILURE OF HARDWARE, SOFTWARE, AND INTERNET CONNECTIONS.
b) Automated Systems. I consent to the use of automated systems or service bureaus by you and the Clearing Broker and your Affiliates and the Clearing Broker’s affiliates in conjunction with my Snowball Account, including automated order entry and execution, record keeping, reporting and account reconciliation, and risk management systems (collectively “Automated Systems”). I understand that the use of Automated Systems entails risks, such as interruption or delays of service, errors or omissions in the information provided, system failure of any computer hardware or software used by an Indemnified Party, or any telecommunications lines or devices used an Indemnified Party, and errors in the design or functioning of such Automated Systems (collectively, a “System Failure”) that could cause substantial damage, expense or liability to me. I understand and agree that Indemnified Parties will have no liability whatsoever for any of my Losses arising out of or relating to a System Failure, Downtime, or any erroneous order or trade that prevents you from fulfilling your obligations under this Agreement, provided that you use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent or limit such erroneous order, trade, System Failure, or Downtime.
c) Indemnification. In addition, I agree that the Indemnified Parties shall have no liability for, and I agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Indemnified Parties from, all Losses that result from: (i) my or my agent’s misrepresentation or alleged misrepresentation, error of judgment, or act or omission, (ii) Indemnified Parties following my or my agent’s directions or instructions, or failing to follow my or my agent’s unlawful or unreasonable directions or instructions, (iii) any activities or services of the Indemnified Parties in connection with my Snowball Account (including any technology services, reporting, trading, research or capital introduction services), or (iv) the failure by any person not controlled by the Indemnified Parties and their affiliates to perform any obligations to me. If I am a California resident, I hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which states: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.” If I am a resident of another jurisdiction, I hereby waive any comparable statute or doctrine. Further, if I authorize or allow third parties to gain access to your services, including my Snowball Account or RHF Account, I will indemnify, defend and hold harmless you, your Affiliates, and your and your Affiliates’ respective officers and employees against any Losses arising out of claims or suits by such third parties based upon or relating to such access and use. Snowball does not warrant against loss of use or any direct, indirect or consequential damages or Losses to me caused by my assent, expressed or implied, to a third party accessing my Snowball Account or RHF Account or associated information, including access provided through any other third party systems or sites.
d) Legal Costs. I agree to indemnify Snowball for actual, reasonable legal costs and expenses directly related to my Snowball Account or any related account that are a result of any regulatory inquiry, legal action, litigation, dispute, or investigation that arise or relate to me or my use of my Snowball Account or the Snowball Services. I understand that, as a result, you will be entitled to charge my Snowball Account for such costs without notice, including legal and enforcement related costs that you incur. Any withholding will last for a period of time that is reasonably necessary to resolve any regulatory or legal issue at hand, and Snowball may place any amounts garnered from me in a separate account and will pay to me the remaining balance after any noted issue has been resolved. Furthermore, I agree that where such actions relate to a specific asset in my Snowball Account, that asset may not be transferred out of my Snowball Account until the matter is resolved.
e) NO WARRANTIES. I UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT MY USE OF MY Snowball ACCOUNT, THE Snowball SERVICE, OR ANY OTHER SERVICE PROVIDED BY Snowball OR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES IS AT MY SOLE RISK. THE Snowball SERVICE IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS,” “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING THOSE OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OTHER THAN THOSE WARRANTIES WHICH ARE IMPLIED BY AND INCAPABLE OF EXCLUSION, RESTRICTION OR MODIFICATION UNDER THE LAWS APPLICABLE TO THIS AGREEMENT.
20. Event of Death.
I agree that in the event of my death, the representative of my estate or the survivor or survivors shall give you written notice thereof as soon as practicable, and you may, before or after receiving such notice, take such actions, require such papers and inheritance or estate tax waivers, retain such portion of, or restrict transactions in my Snowball Account as you may deem advisable to protect you against any tax, liability, penalty, or loss under any present or future laws or otherwise. Notwithstanding the above, in the event of my death, you shall not be responsible for any action taken on orders made prior to the actual receipt of notice of death and a reasonable amount of time thereafter for you to take the required measures. Further, you may in your discretion close out my Snowball Account without awaiting the appointment of a personal representative for my estate and without demand upon or notice to any such personal representative. I shall continue to be liable to you for any net debit balance or loss in said account in any way resulting from the completion of transactions initiated prior to the receipt by you of the written notice of the death or incurred in the liquidation of my Snowball Account, and for all other obligations pursuant to this Agreement. Such notice shall not affect your rights under this Agreement to take any action that you could have taken if I had not died.

You are not bound by any verbal statements that seek to amend the Agreement.

All rights and remedies given to you in this Agreement are cumulative and not exclusive of any other rights or remedies to which you are entitled. This Agreement shall not be construed to waive rights that cannot be waived under applicable laws and regulations.
