11. Data privacy and data protection
12. Risks and risk warnings
Safello targets providing a highly trustworthy, secure, compliant and excellent service in the buying and selling of cryptocurrencies however also acknowledges and wants to inform the customers of the risks in connection with activities with cryptocurrencies.
Safello encourages its customers to get acquainted and build knowledge with these risks and how to manage cryptocurrency.
- Cryptocurrency per se and cryptocurrency pricing is not guaranteed by anyone and cryptocurrency may therefore not be considered a monetary asset. Cryptographic units of value are not legally currencies and are accepted only in a few jurisdictions, and only by some market participants as a means of payment which is why customers should be aware of the restricted usage and risks related to expectation and usage.
- Risk of theft and internet vulnerability is present at all times and Safello encourages its customers to take necessary precautions, to follow instructions carefully and to build proper knowledge surrounding these matters. Using a platform and the services of Safello also comes with risks but the customer may lower these risks by applying proper care in transacting with his or her cryptocurrency, funds, wallets and Safello. Every activity connected to the internet comes with risks of cyber related crime towards one’s assets. Safello is not a custodian of cryptocurrency and will only send cryptocurrency directly to the wallet address provided by the customer.
- Buying and selling cryptocurrency is highly speculative with a high risk of volatile changes to pricing and transaction completion time. There is always a risk of abandonment or lack of success in a transaction which Safello targets to minimize as risk by supporting such transactions through its service. Safello does not bear any responsibility for volatility between placement and execution of orders.
- Customers should and must inform themselves on the relevant tax consequences connected with buying, selling and transacting in cryptocurrency in their jurisdictions. In Sweden we refer to Skatteverket.se for more information.
- Regulatory risks are present since the internet is global and cryptocurrency is universally global however not accepted in all jurisdictions. The customer should stay informed of regulatory and legal changes which may impact their ownership and transaction capabilities in cryptocurrency.
