By purchasing, activating, using, or continuing to use one or more products (each, a “Product”) produced by Coinkite Inc. (“us” or “we”), you, the purchaser of the Product, agree to be bound by these terms of sale (the “Terms”). If you are purchasing Products on behalf of another person, you represent and warrant that you have the authority agree to these Terms on behalf of that person.
Orders and Shipment. You may order Products through our website (https://store.coinkite.com/). No order, offer, sale, or other terms that you submit in any manner in connection with any order will be binding on us and you and you agree that the terms applicable to each such order are set out exclusively in these Terms. We may accept such order by confirmation through our website or by processing the shipment for such order. If we do not have any available inventory, we will place it on backorder and advise you through our website. We ship all Products EXW (Incoterms 2020) from our or our service providers’ offices or facilities as determined by the shipping destination. Except to the extent prohibited by applicable law, all sales of Products are final and Products may not be returned or exchanged.
Resellers. If you purchase a Product from a third party (a “Reseller”), such as one of our authorized resellers, the Reseller is solely responsible for processing your order and Product delivery. You must contact the Reseller and not us for any support or questions related to a purchase from any Reseller. Purchases from a Reseller may also be subject to additional terms of such Reseller.
Quebec Residents. At present, Products are not offered to persons domiciled in Quebec. Consequently, if you are domiciled in Quebec, you cannot purchase the Products. We cannot ship Products to Quebec addresses.
Software. Products include certain software and firmware (the “Software”). By purchasing Products, you are not purchasing Software and do not receive any right, title or interest in or to Software other the limited rights of use expressly set out in these Terms. Subject to these Terms, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable (subject to Section 6), non-sublicensable license to use Software solely for your own business or personal use, and solely in connection with your use of the Product in which they have been included. Certain Products includes software licensed under the GNU General Public License v3 and other open source licenses, as identified in documentation provided with the Product. Your use of such software is subject to the open source licenses applicable to such software and, to the extent such open source licenses conflicts with this Agreement, the terms of such licenses will prevail.
Use of Products. Certain Products include functionality to store, display information regarding, facilitate the transfer, transactions or other activities (collectively, “Transactions”) involving, bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies which we choose in our sole discretion to support from time to time (“Coins”). You understand and agree that we are not responsible for, and have no obligation or liability to you or others in respect of any Transactions. You agree to comply with all applicable laws in your use of Products (including all Transactions), including without limitation any anti-money laundering laws or regulations.
Gift Cards. You may purchase one or more virtual gift cards (“Gift Cards”) through our website. You may customize the amount of each Gift Card you purchase. Gift Cards are not credit or debit cards and only constitute prepayment toward the cost of purchases through our website. Gift Cards may not be redeemed for cash, do not constitute a personal property right, and can only be used for the purchase of Products through our website. Gift Cards have no value outside of our website and cannot be used to purchase any other goods or services or from any other person or any other website. Upon completing the purchase of a Gift Card, a secret code for such Gift Card (the “Secret Code”) will be displayed to you. You may also request a link to be sent to the e-mail account you used to purchase the Gift Card to display the Secret Code again. You may check the balance of a Gift Card by entering the Secret Code through a page on our website. Anyone who knows the Secret Code may use it. We do not, and shall have no obligation or responsibility to, verify the identity or validate the rights of any person using any Secret Code. Consequently, it is your exclusive responsibility to safeguard each Secret Code and your e-mail account against loss, theft or unauthorized use, to ensure that each Secret Code is securely communicated only to the person to whom you wish to send a Gift Card, and to ensure that the recipient also safeguards the Secret Code against loss, theft or unauthorized use. Once a Secret Code is used to complete a purchase on our website, the remaining balance (if any) is transferred to a new Gift Card with a new Secret Code that may be accessed by the person completing such purchase. A Gift Card may be subdivided into multiple Gift Cards by using it to purchase new Gift Cards for lesser amounts, but may not be reloaded or have additional value added to it. You are solely responsible for complying with all applicable laws in connection with your use or transfer of any Gift Card, including any taxes. We reserve the right to suspend or deactivate Gift Cards or decline to complete a purchase using a Gift Card in the event of actual or suspected fraud or breach of these Terms, without liability to you or any other person. We also reserve the right to terminate our Gift Card program upon at least 30 days’ notice posted to our website. Upon such termination, Gift Cards will be deactivated. We may revise the terms applicable to Gift Cards at any time by posting updated terms to our website. You are responsible for checking our website for any such revisions. Any such revisions will apply to the use of any Gift Card after the date such revisions are posted or the effective date set forth in such revisions.
Transfer of Products. You may not purchase Products for the purpose of resale or distribution to others unless you have entered into a reseller addendum with us.

The headings in these Terms are for convenience of reference only and do not affect the construction or interpretation of these Terms.
Survival. Neither the expiration nor the earlier termination of your account will release you from any obligation or liability that accrued prior to such expiration or termination. The provisions of these Terms requiring performance or fulfilment after the expiration or earlier termination of your account and any other provisions hereof, the nature and intent of which is to survive termination or expiration, will survive.
Severability. To the extent that any provision of these Terms is declared by a court or other lawful authority of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable: (a) such provision shall be severed and deleted or limited so as to give effect to the intent of the parties insofar as possible and both parties will use their best efforts to substitute a new provision of like economic intent and effect for the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision, and the remainder of these Terms shall continue in full force and effect with respect to all other provisions; and (b) notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve the right to terminate the order of any Products.
Amendments and Waivers. No modification, amendment, addition to or waiver of any rights, obligations or defaults by us shall be effective unless in writing and signed by one of our authorized signing officers. One or more waivers of any right, obligation or default shall be limited to the specific right, obligation or default waived and shall not be construed as a waiver of any subsequent right, obligation or default.
