Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our privacy practices, and contact us if you have questions.
DigitalMint (“We”) is/are committed to protecting your privacy.
At DigitalMint, we believe strongly in fundamental privacy rights — and that those fundamental rights should not differ depending on where you live in the world. That’s why we treat any data that relates to an identified or identifiable individual or that is linked or linkable to them by DigitalMint as “personal data,” no matter where the individual lives. This means that data that directly identifies you — such as your name — is personal data, and also data that does not directly identify you, but that can reasonably be used to identify you, is personal data.
Depending on applicable law (including in your jurisdiction of residence), you may be able to assert certain rights related to your personal information. We have listed some of these rights below. If any of the listed rights listed are not provided under law for your operating entity or jurisdiction, DigitalMint reserves absolute discretion in providing you similar benefits.
We have provided these rights, where applicable, to our global customer base. There may be situations where we cannot grant your request — for example, if you ask us to delete your transaction data and DigitalMint is legally obligated to keep a record of that transaction to comply with law. We may also decline to grant a request where doing so would undermine our legitimate use of data for anti-fraud and security purposes, such as when you request deletion of an account that is being investigated for security concerns. Other reasons your privacy request may be denied are if it jeopardizes the privacy of others, is frivolous or vexatious, or would be extremely impractical.
The personal data DigitalMint collects, and how we use it, depends on how you interact with DigitalMint. Descriptions of how DigitalMint handles personal data are set forth below.
When you connect with DigitalMint on our website or at a point of sale, contact us (including by social media), participate in an online survey, or otherwise interact with DigitalMint, we may collect a variety of information, including:

ID verification service providers use a combination of government records and publicly available information about you to verify your identity. Such information may include your name, address, job role, public employment profile, credit history, status on any sanctions lists maintained by public authorities, and other relevant data. We obtain such information to comply with our legal obligations, such as anti-money laundering laws. In some cases, we may process additional data about you to assess risk and ensure our Services are not used fraudulently or for other illicit activities. In such instances, processing is necessary for us to continue to perform our contractual obligations with you and others.
Blockchain Data: We may analyze public blockchain data to ensure parties utilizing our Services are not engaged in illegal or prohibited activity under our Terms, and to analyze transaction trends for research and development purposes.
For research and development purposes, we may use datasets such as those that contain images, voices, or other data that could be associated with an identifiable person. When acquiring such datasets, we do so in accordance with applicable law, including law in the jurisdiction in which the dataset is hosted.
DigitalMint uses personal data to power our Services, to process your transactions, to communicate with you, for security and fraud prevention, and to comply with law. We may also use personal data for other purposes with your consent.
If you choose to limit the use of your personal information, certain features or Services may not be available to you.
DigitalMint uses your personal data only when we have a valid legal basis to do so. Depending on the circumstance, DigitalMint may rely on your consent or the fact that the processing is necessary to fulfill a contract with you, protect your vital interests or those of other persons, or to comply with law. We may also process your personal data where we believe it is in our or others’ legitimate interests, taking into consideration your interests, rights, and expectations. If you have questions about a legal basis described in this policy, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

By using this or any other DigitalMint Services, you expressly consent and agree to be legally bound by the terms of this Agreement and subsequent modifications thereto.
You agree and understand that virtual currencies, cryptocurrencies, digital currencies or digital assets, such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, etc., (“Virtual Currency”) are not legal tender, carry no protection by the FDIC, and the use of Virtual Currency is subject to all applicable state and federal laws and regulations.
You agree that all sales are final, and you understand that Virtual Currency transactions, by their very nature, are irreversible.
DigitalMint does not and shall not transmit monetary value to another person or to another location for any person. This prohibition does not apply to sending Virtual Currency to wallets hosted by third-party services, provided the User has exclusive access to that hosted wallet.
DigitalMint reserves the right to modify or discontinue any portion of the DigitalMint Services at any time, including limiting or terminating your access to DigitalMint Services, at any time and for any reason, without notice to you. You agree that DigitalMint shall not be liable to you or any third party for any modification or termination of the DigitalMint Services, or limitations or termination of your access to the DigitalMint Services, except to the extent otherwise expressly set forth herein.
Your acceptance of any amendments to this Agreement and any related policies shall be effective (i) immediately upon your express approval, including, but not limited to, your acknowledgement via text message (SMS) response or other electronic means, or your choosing to proceeding with a transaction using a DigitalMint Service after being provided email, SMS, or on screen notification from DigitalMint giving you an opportunity to view the amended Agreement prior to your confirmation of the subject transaction, or (ii) one month after the date of posting on the relevant DigitalMint website, except where the changes are required by law or on the instruction of a competent governmental agency.

Kiosk or Teller App: By using DigitalMint Kiosk or Teller App services and tapping the on-screen “Complete Transaction” button or stating verbally your acceptance to the in-person teller-agent, you agree to pay the Exchange Rate (as defined below), which is inclusive of any and all DigitalMint markup or fees, quoted on the Kiosk screen or verbally to the User by an in-person teller-agent operating the Teller App on behalf of the User. Any Exchange Rate estimates provided on the DigitalMint Site using the Exchange Rate estimate calculator tool on the “Rates” or any “Location Details” pages are for User reference only and do not constitute a binding offer between the parties for the purchase and/or sale of Virtual Currency at the Exchange Rate stated on the DigitalMint Site.
OTC Exchange: By using OTC Exchange Site and clicking the on-screen “Complete Transaction” button, you agree to pay the Exchange Rate (as defined below) quoted on the screen, which is inclusive of any and all DigitalMint markup or fees.
The “Exchange Rate” is the total price quoted to the User (i) on the Kiosk screen, (ii) by an in-person teller-agent operating the Teller App on behalf of the User, or (iii) on the OTC Exchange Site, for the purchase or sale of the specified type and amount of Virtual Currency, which is based upon the Prevailing Rate, plus the DigitalMint Markup.
The “Prevailing Rate” is equal to the sum of (a) the most recent ask price, in U.S. Dollars, for the type of Virtual Currency to be purchased calculated based on a weighted average of a basket of cryptocurrency exchanges, including, but not limited to, Bitfinex, Bitstamp, Coinbase, Coinbase Pro, Gemini or a similar major cryptocurrency exchange, at the time the Exchange Rate is quoted to the User (the “Spot”), and (b) an amount equal to no less than one percent (1%), but not to exceed three percent (3%) of the Spot (the “Spot Volatility Index”). At DigitalMint’s discretion, the actual Spot Volatility Index may be higher or lower within the stated range due to market volatility and fluctuations in the price of the type of Virtual Currency to be purchased between the time the Exchange Rate is quoted to the User and the time the order is executed.
The “DigitalMint Markup” shall be an amount equal to no less than six percent (6%), but not to exceed sixteen percent (16%) of the total price for the specified type and amount of Virtual Currency to be purchased or sold in connection with the subject transaction at the Prevailing Rate. The actual DigitalMint Markup applied to a transaction may vary based on the specific DigitalMint Virtual Currency Kiosk or Teller Application location used to complete a particular transaction or individual User pricing arrangements with DigitalMint.
DigitalMint reserves the right to adjust markup, pricing, fees, and any applicable waivers at any time and without prior notice. DigitalMint reserves the right to reject or cancel a transaction prior to order execution for any reason.
Prior to the completion of any transaction, DigitalMint reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to reject or cancel any quoted transactions involving the purchase or sale of Virtual Currency or transfers to or from a User’s digital wallet, including but not limited to instances where DigitalMint has reason to believe that the transaction involves (or has a high risk of involvement in) money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud, or any other type of financial crime. Similarly, DigitalMint reserves the right to reject a transaction prior to order execution for any reason, including, but not limited to, rejecting a transaction if it determines that it is unable to execute against it as a principal market maker because underlying market conditions, pricing, or other circumstances and risk factors have changed, or the transaction amount exceeds a User’s maximum daily purchase limit. Should DigitalMint cancel a transaction prior to order execution for any reason, DigitalMint is not obligated to reinitiate a transaction at the same Exchange Rate, DigitalMint Markup, or on the same terms as the subject canceled transaction.
As with any asset, the value of Virtual Currency can go up or down and there can be a substantial risk that you lose money buying, selling, holding, or investing in virtual currencies. You should carefully consider whether trading or holding virtual currencies is suitable for you in light of your financial condition. DigitalMint is not registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and does not offer securities services in the United States or to U.S. persons.
