That price is Data from the Exchange simply communicated to you by Simplex through the Service, with no representation as to its accuracy.

- Other Transactions
- Simplex Not Party to Transactions
Simplex is not a party to Exchange Terms or other Integrated Platform Terms and has no liability to you or any third party under any of them. Simplex does not itself purchase or sell any Crypto or Fiat. Simplex does not take possession or control of Transaction Crypto or Fiat, except pursuant to a separate agreement to which you are not a party. If an Integrated Platform is a seller of Crypto to you that Integrated Platform is a client payment processing of Simplex, then Simplex might, pursuant to a separate agreement with such seller take possession of Fiat for such seller as a payment processor and agent of such seller, but at no time do you rely on the solvency of Simplex to complete any Transaction. All Transactions, if any, take place between you and an Exchange; Simplex is not a party to them. If you have used Simplex to provide or receive payment Data (e.g. a payment card or bank account information) so that the Exchange can take a payment from you or make a payment to you and such payment succeeds or fails, you do not receive the corresponding Crypto that you have agreed to purchase under the Transaction or do not receive the corresponding Fiat you have agreed to accept in exchange for the sale of Crypto under the Transaction, Simplex shall have no liability to you for such outcomes and you shall look to only the Exchange for recovery. If you are entitled to a refund from an Exchange or other Integrated Platform for a given Transaction or otherwise, you shall look only to that third party for such refund and not to Simplex. If your payment method for Crypto does not work or is declined by Exchange or other Integrated Platform, Simplex is not liable for such failures and shall have no duty to extend credit to you or cause any third party to complete any Transaction. Simplex does not endorse any third party product or service even if such third party is an Integrated Platform. Exchanges may decline to make or receive payment by any method as established under the Exchanges’ terms and conditions.
- Payment Account Information Storage and Transfer
- Anti-Money Laundering requirements
Exchanges and other Integrated Platforms are mostly government-licensed, registered and regulated entities that have a legal obligation to review Transactions to prevent the financing of terrorism, money laundering, crime, fraud and other illegal or risky activity. Out of an abundance of caution, Simplex also screens users of its Service for the same purpose. During and following the term of these Terms, you shall provide such Data as Simplex or any Integrated Platform shall require to perform a thorough review of each Transaction and you as a customer. Any failure by you to provide such information constitutes a material breach of these Terms.
Simplex does not charge you fees for its Service of communicating Data with respect to your Transactions. Simplex does not provide you with any financial services. Any fees charged by Simplex, if any, will be disclosed to you prior to being charged and are in consideration for additional related services necessary for completing the Transaction in a compliant manner. The amount of fees charged by Simplex may differ depending on the referring site/application. Fees charged by Simplex are not refundable. Exchanges and other Integrated Platforms also charge fees under their respective terms; please read them carefully before carrying out any Transaction. Amounts that you pay to an Exchange or other third party may be subject to foreign exchange conversion costs for which Simplex is not liable. Your payment card issuer or other payments provider may charge fees for your use of the relevant payment instrument when processing a Transaction with an Exchange; Simplex is not liable for any such fees or other banking fees you may incur.
- Cancellation Policy
Once a payment is approved and Crypto has been sent to your wallet address (when you are buying Crypto) or and Crypto has been sent from your wallet address (when you are selling Crypto), it cannot be canceled or refunded.
Payments that are still pending might be possible to cancel depending on the cancellation and refund policies of Integrated Platforms.
To cancel a pending payment and get a refund, send a request via email to the contact information of the appropriate Integrated Platform. You can also contact and Simplex will use commercially reasonable efforts to share your request with the Integrated Platform in question email@example.com.
7. CRYPTO RISK
You acknowledge and accept that there are inherent risks associated with Crypto and that such risks extend to Transactions. These risks include but are not limited to the failure of hardware, software or internet connections, the risk of malicious software introduction and the risk of unauthorized access to Account (if any) or Your Wallet. It is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with the risks involved with Crypto, their protocols and networks. Some Crypto may be deemed by one or another regulator to be securities. Use of the Service does not remove these risks. Simplex is not responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays when using the Services, however they may be caused. Transactions are contingent on the relevant Crypto network remaining operational which may be a function of Crypto miners, none of which are controlled by Simplex and for which Simplex has not liability. You acknowledge and agree that the value of Crypto can change rapidly and without warning, increase or decrease unexpectedly and may even fall to zero. Transactions will take time to be confirmed and may in some cases not be completed. If you attempt to send or receive Crypto that are not supported by Your Wallet or Integrated Platform they may be lost entirely and not be recoverable. In no event will Simplex be liable to you or to any third party for any of the foregoing. If the Services post a dollar value in association with a given Crypto, such posting does not constitute a representation or guarantee as to the actual or projected value of such assets. Instead, it is third party Integrated Platform information published to Service for your general information only, and you should not rely on it for any financial decision. It is your responsibility to independently ascertain the value of your Crypto, without relying on the Services. You understand and accept that there are also inherent risks associated with using any Crypto. Crypto is not Fiat money and it is not insured by the FDIC or any other insurer or government. Most Crypto Transactions are irreversible and if you lose the private keys to Your Wallet, all your Crypto may be taken and may not be retrievable. These risks include but are not limited to unanticipated changes to the network protocol and unknown vulnerabilities which may include or result in underlying technology attacks. Other possible changes that could render Your Wallet inaccessible may include forks or rollbacks of Crypto, networks, or blockchains. Simplex has no control over any Crypto and will not be responsible for any loss you suffer when you transact via any Crypto.
Simplex has no duty to monitor the Services for fraud or other suspicious activity. However, if Simplex determines that any instance of the Service exposes you, Simplex or any third party to any legal, financial, security or reputational risk, Simplex reserves the right to suspend the Service in respect of the Transactions, persons or entities involved and Simplex shall have no liability you or any third party for such action.
