LAST UPDATE: May 12, 2023
Welcome to Airtm!
Welcome to the website operated by Airtm Inc., Airtm Ltd., and any affiliated companies (collectively, and hereafter referred to as “Airtm,” “we,” “us,” or “our”).
These Terms of Service (these “Terms”) are an agreement that describes your rights and responsibilities as an Airtm user. These Terms explain the terms by which you may access and use our online and/or mobile services, website, software, and documentation provided on or in connection with the service (collectively, the “Services”).
By integrating with various service providers including digital infrastructure, identity verification, web services and financial institutions, we are able to offer our Services which include access to a custodial account (the “End User Custody Account”) offered, operated, and maintained by Wyre, Inc., The Badger Technology Company Limited, company Incorporated in Gibraltar better known as “Bitso International” or other financial institutions (“Financial Institution(s)”). In some instances, our Services are offered directly to you by our service providers in which case you will be notified of the entity providing the service and asked to accept that entities’ terms of service (“Service Provider Terms”).
Through our Services, you may instruct certain Financial Institutions to exchange fiat for Digital Currency (as defined below) and vice versa (the “Exchange Services”). The Exchange Services and End User Custody Account are each governed by the terms and conditions you enter into with each Financial Institution (the “Financial Institution Terms”). Neither the Exchange Services nor End User Custody Account are offered by us, and instead are offered by Financial Institutions. Our Services may be provided to you to help you view, manage and access your End User Custody Account and the Exchange Services from Financial Institutions. As used throughout, “Digital Currency” means only those particular digital currencies listed as available to trade or custody in your End User Custody Account or in the Services. You will access and manage your funds and End User Custody Account(s) through Airtm. We do not provide any Exchange Services or End User Custody Accounts.
We invite you to join our global network of members who value FREEDOM to hold and move their legally-earned money in ways that are most convenient, safe, and reliable. If your money has been legally earned, then welcome to a new world of opportunity and freedom. It’s YOUR money.

You or we, or any other party that may be involved, including without limitation Onfido, Inc., (each a “Party”, collectively, the “Parties”) shall have the right to have any dispute arising between or among the Parties pursuant to or related to these Terms or that relates in any way whatsoever to your use of the Services, including, but not limited to, your use of the identity verification feature and any of Onfido’s products or services, be settled by means of binding arbitration. This arbitration provision expressly covers all past, present or future claims between or among the Parties. No claim hereunder may be asserted on a class, collective or representative basis or otherwise joined with the claims of anyone else. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute hereunder including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of the requirement to arbitrate is void or voidable. Arbitration must proceed only with and under this arbitration clause and the applicable International Chamber of Commerce’s (ICC) Rules, but the rules in this arbitration clause will be followed if there is disagreement between them and ICC’s procedures. If ICC’s rules or procedures change after the claim is filed, the procedures in effect when the claim was filed will apply. For a copy of ICC’s rules and procedures, to file a claim or for other information, please see http://www.iccwbo.org. If ICC is completely unavailable, and if the Parties cannot agree on a substitute, then a Party may request that a court appoint a substitute arbitrator. Unless otherwise agreed by the Parties, the arbitration will be conducted in Los Angeles, California. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Airtm submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the ICC Rules. Subject to the ICC Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration. Notwithstanding the provisions of the modification-related provisions above, if Airtm changes this “Arbitration” section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by providing Airtm written notice of such rejection by mail or hand delivery to: Airtm Inc, Attn: Dispute Resolutions, 8 The Green, STE 300, Dover, DE 19901, or by email from the email address associated with your Account to: support@Airtm.io, within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last update” date above. In order to be effective, the notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to reject changes to this “Arbitration” section. By rejecting changes, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Airtm in accordance with the provisions of this “Arbitration” section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).

• Business Purposes. Where we are processing your personal information for our Business Purposes, we generally will retain such information for a reasonable period of time based on the particular interest, taking into account the fundamental interests and the rights and freedoms of data subjects.
• Contractual Reasons. Where we are processing personal information for Contractual Reasons, we generally will retain the information for the duration of the contract plus some additional limited period of time that is necessary to comply with law or that represents the statute of limitations for legal claims that could arise from the contractual relationship.
• Legal Reasons. Where we are processing personal information based on a legal obligation, we generally will retain the information for the period of time necessary to fulfill the legal obligation. In some cases, we may need to apply a “legal hold” that retains information beyond our typical retention period where we face threat of legal claim. In that case, we will retain the information until the hold is removed, which typically means the claim or threat of claim has been resolved.
In all cases, in addition to the purposes and legal bases, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal information, as well as the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information. When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it, or, if this is not possible, we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
10. HOW DO WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION SAFE?
→ In Short: We aim to protect your personal information through a system of organizational and technical security measures. We have implemented appropriate security measures designed to protect your personal information.
Airtm has implemented appropriate technical and organizational security measures designed to protect the security of any personal information processed: we protect your personal information by maintaining physical, electronic and procedural safeguards. We use network safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption and authorize access to personal information only for those who require access to fulfill their work responsibilities.
However, please remember that we cannot guarantee that the Services are 100% secure and transmission of personal information to and from our Services is at your own risk. You should only access the Services within a secure environment, use a secure password and take personal basic security measures (for example, do not share your account details and passwords with other people and remember that Airtm never asks for your password or other account details via email, text message or similar ways).
In addition, we cannot guarantee or guarantee the security or confidentiality of the information you transmit to us or receive from us over the Internet or wireless connection, including email, telephone or SMS, since we have no way to protect that information once it leaves and until it reaches us. If you have reason to believe that your data is no longer secure, please contact us at the email address or postal address indicated in Section 14.
11. DO WE COLLECT INFORMATION FROM MINORS?
→ In Short: We do not knowingly collect data from or market to children under 18 years of age.
We do not knowingly solicit data from or market to children under 18 years of age: by using the platform, you represent that you are at least 18.
If we learn that personal information from users less than 18 years of age has been collected, we will deactivate the account and take reasonable measures to promptly delete such data from our records.
If you become aware of any data we have collected from children under age 18, please contact us as soon as possible (Section 13 for contact details).
12. WHAT ARE YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS?
→ In Short: In some jurisdictions, such as the United Kingdom, the European Economic Area, many Latin American countries and some US states, you have rights that allow you greater access to and control over your personal information.
Depending on which country’s laws apply, your privacy rights may include:
• The right to request access and obtain a copy of your personal information;

In some jurisdictions, such as the United Kingdom, the European Economic Area, many Latin American countries and some US states, you have rights that allow you greater access to and control over your personal information. Because your privacy is important to us, we grant the rights described in this Privacy Rights Policy to all individuals whose information we control, regardless of where they are located.
Airtm gives individuals rights to ACCESS, RECTIFY, RESTRICT THE PROCESSING OF, ERASE, OBTAIN A COPY OF OR OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF THEIR PERSONAL INFORMATION. To exercise your rights, please follow the process described in this Privacy Rights Policy.
PRIVACY RIGHTS: WHAT TO KNOW

The right to obtain:
The right to correct or update any personal information about you that is inaccurate or incomplete.

2. WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, and on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in.
Both websites and HTML emails may also contain other tracking technologies such as “web beacons” or “pixels.” These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics, for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way. As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.
First-party & Third-party Cookies
First-party Cookies are cookies that belong to the Company and that we place on your device; and Third-party Cookies are cookies that another party places on your device through our Site.
Session Cookies are temporary cookies that are used to remember you during the course of your visit to the website, and they expire when you close the web browser. Once you close the browser, all Session Cookies are deleted.
A Persistent Cookie is a cookie that is stored by the web browser on your device until it expires or you delete it. Persistent Cookies are used to remember your preferences within the website and remain on your desktop or mobile device even after you close your browser or restart your computer. We use these cookies to analyze user behavior to establish visit patterns so that we can improve our website functionality for you and others who visit our website(s). These cookies also allow us to serve you with targeted advertising and measure the effectiveness of our site functionality and advertising.
3. AIRTM’S COOKIES, LOCAL STORAGE AND SESSION STORAGE
Although here at Airtm we don’t use any First Party Cookies, we do use Local Storage and Session Storage. Local and Session Storage are used to store data in the browser and are accessible from the client-side only; this means web servers can’t access them directly.
The main difference between Local and Session storage is that, while Local Storage has no expiration date, Session Storage is cleared when you close the browser tab – hence the name “session”.
4. THIRD PARTY COOKIES
Even if we do not use First Party Cookies, we may use various Third Party cookies to report usage statistics of the Service, deliver advertisements on and through the Service, and so on. You can manage your Third Party Cookies settings through our website or our apps. Please go to Appendix A for the list of our Third Party Cookies.
5. WHAT ARE YOUR OPTIONS REGARDING COOKIES?
Most web browsers let you choose whether to accept cookies, and most also let you delete cookies already set. The choices available, and the mechanism used, will vary from browser to browser. Such browser settings are typically found in the “options”, “tools” or “preferences” menu. You may also consult the browser’s “help” menu. For example:
Cookie settings in Internet Explorer
There are online tools available for clearing all cookies left behind by the websites you have visited, such as www.allaboutcookies.org; and for users in the EEA & UK, https://www.youronlinechoices.eu/.
Most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of Interest Based Advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com.
6. OTHER IDENTIFICATION TECHNOLOGIES
In addition to Third Party Cookies, there are other identification technologies we may use or permit on our Services:
1. “Pixel tags” (also called beacons or pixels) are small blocks of code installed on (or called by) a web page, app, or advertisement which can retrieve certain information about your device and browser, including for example: device type, operating system, browser type and version, website visited, time of visit, referring website, IP address, and other similar information, including the small text file (the cookie) that uniquely identifies the device. Pixels provide the means by which third parties can set and read browser cookies from a domain that they do not themselves operate and collect information about visitors to that domain, typically with the permission of the domain owner. Facebook Pixel and Google tag are currently being used.
2. “Software Development Kits” (also called SDKs) function like pixels and cookies, but operate in the mobile app context where pixels and cookies cannot always function. The primary app developer can install pieces of code (the SDK) from partners in the app, and thereby allow the partner to collect certain information about user interaction with the app and information about the user device and network information. Kount, Onfido and Leanplum software development kits are currently being used.
