Some of the Services may not be available generally, or more specifically to residents of certain jurisdictions.

During the registration process, we will ask you for certain information, including your name and other personal information, to verify your identity.

You will need to complete certain verification procedures before you are permitted to use the Services. Your access to one or more Services and the limits that apply to your use of the Services, may change as a result of information collected about you on an ongoing basis. The information we request may include certain personal information, including your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, date of birth, taxpayer identification number, government identification, and information regarding your bank account (such as the name of the bank, the account type, routing number, and account number). In providing us with this or any other information that may be required, you confirm that the information is complete, accurate and up to date. You agree to keep us updated if any of the information you provide changes. You authorize us to make inquiries, whether directly or through third parties, that we consider necessary to verify your identity or protect you and/or us against fraud or other financial crime, and to take action we reasonably deem necessary based on the results of such inquiries. When we carry out these inquiries, you acknowledge and agree that your personal information may be disclosed to consumer reporting, fraud prevention, financial crime or other agencies and that these agencies may respond to our inquiries. Additionally, we may require you to wait some amount of time after completion of a transaction before permitting you to use further Services and/or before permitting you to engage in transactions beyond certain volume limits. This includes authorizing your wireless carrier to use your mobile number, name, address, email, network status, customer type, customer role, billing type, mobile device identifiers (IMSI and IMEI) and other subscriber status details, if available, to allow verification of your identity and to compare information you have provided to Thor with your wireless carrier account profile information for the duration of the business relationship.

Hosted Digital Currency Wallet
Your Hosted Digital Currency Wallet enables you to store, track and manage Digital Currencies contained in your Hosted Digital Currency Wallet and to purchase certain goods, products and services via the Thor Platform. You may be able to request, send and receive, and store Digital Currency from, third parties with a Thor Account and Hosted Digital Currency Wallet by giving instructions through your Thor Account (each such transaction is a "Digital Currency Transaction"). Depending on your location, certain Hosted Digital Currency Wallet functionality and Digital Currency Transactions may not be available.
"THOR" is our proprietary Thor Platform digital credit. The THOR digital credit represents a limited, non-transferable, non-exclusive license to use the features of the Thor Platform for personal use and does not represent a property interest of any kind. THOR has no value in real currency. We reserve the right to change the purchase price for THOR at any time to avoid the perception that it has a set, equivalent value in real currency. THOR is not returnable, exchangeable, or refundable for real currency. THOR cannot be transferred, gifted, exchanged, or sold between users and you agree not to sell, transfer, or assist other users in selling or transferring THOR credit in any manner. You agree that THOR is to be used exclusively on the Thor Platform and is not intended to be a financial investment of any kind.
Thor reserves the right to refuse to process or cancel any pending Digital Currency Transaction or to impose transaction limits. Thor cannot reverse a Digital Currency Transaction which has been broadcast to a Digital Currency network or otherwise initiated. The Hosted Digital Currency Wallet Services are available only in connection with those Digital Currencies that Thor, in its sole discretion, decides to support. At this time, THOR is the only supported Digital Currency on the Thor Platform. Under no circumstances should you attempt to use your Hosted Digital Currency Wallet to store, send, request, or receive digital currencies in any form that are not supported by Thor. Thor assumes no responsibility or liability in connection with any attempt to use the Services for digital currencies that Thor does not support.
Thor processes Digital Currency according to the instructions received from you and we do not guarantee the identity of any receiver or other person. You should verify all transaction information prior to submitting instructions to Thor. You can only send Digital Currency to another user who has a Thor Account and Hosted Digital Currency Wallet. Once submitted to a Digital Currency network, a Digital Currency Transaction will be unconfirmed for a period of time pending sufficient confirmation of the transaction by the Digital Currency network. A transaction is not complete while it is in a pending state. Digital Currency associated with transactions that are in a pending state will be designated accordingly, and will not be included in your Thor Account balance or be available to conduct transactions. Thor may charge network fees (miner fees) to process a Digital Currency transaction on your behalf. Thor will calculate the network fee in its discretion, although Thor will always notify you of the network fee at or before the time you authorize the transaction. Thor reserves the right to delay any Digital Currency Transaction if it perceives a risk of fraud, illegal activity or any other risk.
Thor does not store any private keys, backup phrases or passwords (collectively, “Private Key Information”). Private Key Information is stored locally in your local copy of the Thor Platform. It is very important that you backup your Private Key Information. If you lose your Private Key Information then it will not be possible for Thor to recover it for you and you may permanently lose access to your Digital Currency. You are responsible for maintaining adequate security and control of any and all IDs, passwords, hints, personal identification numbers, API keys or any other codes that you use to access the Services. Any loss or compromise of your information may result in unauthorized access to your Thor Account by third-parties and the loss or theft of any Digital Currency and/or funds held in your Thor Account and any associated accounts, including your linked bank accounts and credit cards. You are responsible for keeping your email address and telephone number up to date in your Thor Account Profile in order to receive any notices or alerts that we may send you. We assume no responsibility for any loss that you may sustain due to compromise of account login credentials or other information due to no fault of Thor and/or failure to follow or act on any notices or alerts that we may send to you. In the event you believe your Thor Account information has been compromised, contact Thor Support immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unless specifically announced on our website or through some other official public statement of Thor, we do not support metacoins, colored coins, side chains, or other derivative, enhanced, or forked protocols, tokens, or coins which supplement or interact with a Digital Currency supported by Thor (collectively, “Advanced Protocols”). Do not use your Thor Account to attempt to receive, request, send, store, or engage in any other type of transaction involving an Advanced Protocol. The Thor platform is not configured to detect and/or secure Advanced Protocol transactions and Thor assumes absolutely no responsibility whatsoever in respect to Advanced Protocols.
Thor does not own or control the underlying software protocols or blockchains which govern the operation of Digital Currencies we support. In general, the underlying protocols are open source and anyone can use, copy, modify, and distribute them. By using the Thor Platform, you acknowledge and agree (i) that Thor is not responsible for operation of the underlying protocols and that Thor makes no guarantee of their functionality, security, or availability; and (ii) that the underlying protocols are subject to sudden changes in operating rules (a/k/a “forks”), and that such forks may materially affect the value, function, and/or even the name of the Digital Currency you store in your Hosted Digital Currency Wallet. In the event of a fork, you agree that Thor may temporarily suspend Thor operations (with or without advance notice to you) and that Thor may, in its sole discretion, decide whether or not to support (or cease supporting) either branch of the forked protocol entirely. You acknowledge and agree that Thor assumes absolutely no responsibility whatsoever in respect of an unsupported branch of a forked protocol.
General. Thor offers a payment service that lets you send funds (U.S. dollars) to, or receive funds from, other users with a Thor Account and USD Wallet (“USD Payment Service”). You can pay for goods or services at certain merchants. In order to use our USD Payment Service, you will need to first sign up for a Dwolla Platform Account.
Dwolla Platform Account. We have partnered with Dwolla, a payments provider company, to offer you the USD Payment Services. When you sign up for a Thor Account with us, you will also be prompted to sign up for a Dwolla account (called a "Dwolla Platform Account"). You authorize us to share any of your information with Dwolla needed to open and support your Dwolla Platform Account. It is your responsibility to make sure data you provide us is accurate and complete.
It is important you understand the nature of the two separate accounts underlying your Thor Wallet. Your Thor Wallet on our platform is the interface where you can manage your funds, while your funds are stored with Dwolla's financial institution partners until they are used for transactions.
When you open a Dwolla Platform Account, you will link a checking or savings account from a bank. Once linked, you can load funds from the linked bank account to your Dwolla Platform Account. Any funds you load to the Dwolla Platform Account are placed in a pooled account held by one of Dwolla's financial institution partners. Be aware of the following about the pooled account:
• It does not pay interest.
• It is not eligible for FDIC insurance, individual insurance, or share insurance offered by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund.
• If the financial institution partner enters into receivership, you may lose value.
When you send funds, receive funds, or make payments to merchants, Dwolla's financial institution partners will debit or credit your Dwolla Platform Account based on the instructions you send through Thor. Neither Thor nor Dwolla receive, hold, or transmit funds.
Thor (not Dwolla) will provide you with any and all notifications as well as all customer support related to the Dwolla Platform Account. Please contact us if you have any questions.
Special Offers and Services. We may, at any time, provide special offers from select merchants to you and load these offers onto your Thor Account. We may also add to our USD Payment Services as we create new ways for you to use our platform.
We may offer a sign-up incentive for limited periods of time. If we do, we may stop offering this incentive at any time.
Account Balances. You cannot use our USD Payment Services to send funds you don't have. When you initiate a transaction through your USD Wallet, you must have enough funds in your USD Wallet to support that transaction, or we will not permit it to go through.
You cannot have a negative balance in your USD Wallet and you cannot incur overdrafts.
Electronic Fund Transfers Through Dwolla Platform Account. You can initiate the following electronic fund transfers ("EFTs" for short) through your USD Wallet:
• Load funds to your Dwolla Platform Account from a bank account linked to your Dwolla Platform Account;
• Withdraw funds from your Dwolla Platform Account to your linked bank account; and
• Transfer funds from your Dwolla Platform Account to another Thor Account user’s Dwolla Platform Account.
• Make purchases at participating merchants.
Once the above EFTs are initiated through your USD Wallet, we pass along your payment instructions to Dwolla in order to complete the transaction. Dwolla sets transaction limits on these transfers, which you should review carefully in Dwolla's Terms of Service.
EFTs for Merchant Purchases; Limitations. When you make a purchase at a participating merchant, you authorize an EFT that debits your Dwolla Platform Account. As above, we pass along your payment instructions to Dwolla in order to complete the transaction.
In addition to the limits set by Dwolla, noted above, we impose a transaction limit on purchases made at merchants.
Your Liability for Unauthorized EFTs. Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your USD Wallet has been accessed without your permission or an EFT has been made from your USD Wallet without your permission. Email is the best way to keep your losses down. You could lose all the money in your USD Wallet.
You can email us at email@example.com, and you call us at 617-515-5067. Our mailing address is 1161 Mission St., San Francisco, CA 94103. Our business days are Monday through Friday, not including federal holidays.
If you tell us within 4 business days after you learn of the unauthorized access to your USD Wallet, you can lose no more than $50 if someone initiated an EFT without your permission.
If you do NOT tell us within 4 business days after you learn of the access, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from initiating an EFT without your permission if you had told us, you could lose up to $500.
Also, if your transaction history shows EFTs that you did not make, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within 90 days after the date of the transaction, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time, you may not get back any money you lost after those 90 days. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.
Transaction History. You will be able to see your transaction history on your UD Wallet. We will not send you a periodic statement listing transactions you make on your USD Wallet. If you have any questions about these transactions, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ALL QUESTIONS ABOUT TRANSACTIONS MADE WITH YOUR USD WALLET MUST BE DIRECTED TO US AND NOT TO DWOLLA OR ITS FINANCIAL INSTITUTION PARTNER THAT HOLDS YOUR FUNDS. We are responsible for the EFT service and for resolving any errors in transactions made with your USD Wallet.
Our Liability for EFTs. If we do not complete an EFT to or from your USD Wallet on time or in the correct amount, we will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable, for instance:
• If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your Account to make the EFT.
• If our system was not working properly and you knew about the breakdown when you started the EFT.
• If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood) prevent the EFT, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken.
• There may be other exceptions to our liability stated in these Terms.
Disclosure of Your Information. We will disclose information to third parties about your USD Wallet or the EFTs you make:
• Where it is necessary for completing EFTs;
• In order to verify the existence and condition of your USD Wallet for a third party, such as a credit bureau or merchant;
• In order to comply with government agency or court orders; or
• If you give us your permission.
Thor reserves the right to charge fees for any Service offered under the Thor Platform.
You understand that your bank, Dwolla, and merchants may charge you fees. You should carefully review Dwolla's Terms of Service to determine if you will be subject to any of their fees.
EFT Error Resolution. Contact us immediately at email@example.com or if you think that: (i) your USD Wallet has been accessed without your authorization, (ii) a transaction that you did not authorize has occurred, (iii) a transaction has been processed incorrectly to or from your USD Wallet, or (iv) your transaction history contains an error. If you give someone access to your USD Wallet and that person conducts transactions without your authorization, these transactions are not considered errors, unless you are the victim of a phishing attack or similar exploit.
We must hear from you within 90 days after the date of the suspected error. We may extend this period by a reasonable time if you are delayed because you initially attempted to notify the financial institution that holds your funds.
When you notify us of the suspected error, please provide:
• Your name and email address;
• The nature of the suspected error and why you believe it is an error; and
• The dollar amount of the suspected error.
We will determine whether an error occurred within 10 business days after you notify us and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, we may take up to 45 days to investigate. If we decide to take extra time, we will provisionally credit your USD Wallet within 10 business days for the amount of the suspected error. If we ask you to send your inquiry by email and we do not receive it within 10 business days, we may not credit your USD Wallet. For errors involving new USD Wallets, we may take up to 90 days to investigate and up to 20 business days to credit your USD Wallet.
We will tell you the results within 3 business days after completing our investigation. If we decide there was no error, we will reverse any provisional credits and will provide you with a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents we used in our investigation.
All Other Errors. If you believe there is some transaction error that does not involve an EFT, contact us within 4 business days of the transaction. If you do not contact us within 4 business days, we will not be liable for any loss.
Cancellation and Refunds. As a general rule, we do not cancel or reverse transactions, including EFTs. If you want to cancel an EFT you initiated within the past 30 minutes, please contact us immediately.
Also, we do not provide refunds. If you want a refund, please contact the merchant who received your payment.
Purchases with Merchants. You may purchase goods or services at participating merchants. When you make these purchases, you authorize a debit from your Dwolla Platform Account in the amount of the purchase.
USD Purchases. If you wish to purchase any product or service made available through the Services ("Purchase"), you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your Purchase, including your debit or credit card number, the expiration date of your card, your billing address, and your shipping information.

Final. Digital Currency transactions are final. Once you send Digital Currency funds to our designated account, the transaction cannot be reversed. This is a core feature of Digital Currency.
U.S. Dollars. All Digital Currency transactions are communicated in USD. The exchange rate will be determined by us at our sole discretion, at the time of purchase (the “Digital Currency Exchange Rate”). This exchange rate is valid for up to 10 minutes. If the payment is not completed during this time, you may be provided with a new exchange rate. Digital Currency is only accepted by the domestic (US) version of the Thor Mobile Application.
Returns. You have 30 calendar days to return an item from the date you received it. To be eligible for a return, your items must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. Your item must be in the original packaging. Returned orders qualify for a refund in Digital Currency. The refund will be issued for the full USD value of the order and processed at the Digital Currency exchange rate when the refund is completed. Your refund will be issued through the Thor Mobile Application using the Hosted Digital Currency Wallet address listed on your Thor Account. Damaged or defective merchandise may also be returned for a replacement of the exact item. Replacement orders will ship once the return of the original item is received, approved and processed at our warehouse.
Shipping. You will be responsible for paying for your own shipping costs for returning your item. Shipping costs are non-refundable. If you receive a refund, the cost of return shipping will be deducted from your refund.

A refund will be issued for the full USD value of the order and processed at the Digital Currency Exchange Rate when the refund is completed.

THIS SECTION AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE AGREEING TO THESE TERMS.
To resolve disputes in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and Thor agree that any dispute arising in connection with the Services will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Our agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the Services, whether based in equity, contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether the claims arise during or after the termination of the Services.
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT, BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, YOU AND THOR ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION IN COURT OR IN ARBITRATION.
We both agree that nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of our right to (I) bring an individual action in small claims court, or (II) pursue enforcement actions through applicable federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available.
Any arbitration between you and Thor will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA Rules"). The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. Your arbitration filing fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. If it is determined by the arbitrator that you cannot afford such fees, we will pay all arbitration fees and expenses.
Any arbitration hearings will take place in San Francisco, California, provided that if the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted (i) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (ii) through a nonappearance based telephonic hearing; or (iii) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules.
YOU AND THOR AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
You agree that the enforceability of these arbitration provisions will be determined by the arbitrator as provided in the AAA Rules. You agree that the arbitration provisions of these Terms in effect at the time of demand or action, and not the time of your or our alleged injury, will be the provisions that will be applied by the arbitrator or a court.
If you have any questions about these Terms, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
