Introduction

Welcome to Begbot. We offer you a global portfolio of products and services.

Account

If you wish to participate in our offered service, you will need to open an account with us. By opening an account with us, you agree to be bound by our Account Terms and Conditions of Use.

Services

Before beginning to use our service, you should read through our Services – General Conditions as well as the “Specific Conditions” which apply to you and to each of your transactions as set out below.

PART A – Account Terms and Conditions of Use

PART B – Services

PART C – Begbot Forum – Conditions of Use


PART A – Account Terms and Conditions of Use

Before you can use our services, you need to open an account and deposit funds.

Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully before opening an account with us.

Please also read our Privacy Policy, Cookie Policy, Dispute Resolution Policy, Trust Deed and the provisions regarding the Begbot Charges which are incorporated by reference into these Terms and Conditions. If there is any inconsistency between these Terms and Conditions and any of the documents listed above, these Terms and Conditions will prevail.

By clicking the “I Confirm” button on the account opening screen, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions.

If you reside anywhere other than in the North Korea, you will be opening an account with Begbot.com, and references in these Terms and Conditions to “Begbot”, “we”, “us” or “our” will be to Begbot.com.

1. Your Account
In consideration of our accepting your application to open an account, you represent to us (and acknowledge that we rely on these representations) as follows:

– You are 18 years of age or over, of sound mind and capable of taking responsibility for your own actions and that you can enter into a legally binding agreement with us;
– You agree to provide accurate registration information, including without limitation your correct date of birth and your country of residence. You agree to inform us of any changes in such details;
– You are the person whose details are provided in connection with your registration or, in the case of legal entities, you are a duly authorised representative of the relevant legal entity;
– You are acting as a principal and not as an agent on behalf of a third party;
– You are not an undischarged bankrupt or in a voluntary arrangement with your creditors; and
– You are not located in the Northern Korea or any other country with a comparable legal situation – Begbot may from time to time determine these countries.
It is your responsibility to keep your contact details up-to-date on your account. Failure to do so may result in you failing to receive important account related notifications and information from Begbot, including changes we make to Begbot’s terms and conditions.

You are solely responsible for the security and confidentiality of your account. In particular, you agree to keep your username, password and/or TAN strictly confidential and you are responsible for any misuse of your password and/or TAN. Please note that when you create an account you have the option to use your email address or a username to log in to/identify your account. This can reduce the security levels of your account as your email address may be more accessible and this makes it easier for third parties to gain access to your account.

Provided that we have been correctly supplied with the account information requested, we are entitled to assume that offers and payments are made by you. You should change your password on a regular basis and never disclose it to any third party. You undertake to protect your username and password in the same way that you would in respect of your bank cards and any failure to do so shall be at your sole risk and expense. If another person accesses your account, you are solely responsible for all their actions whether or not their access was authorised by you and you hereby indemnify us and hold us harmless against all costs, claims, expenses and damages howsoever arising in connection with the use of or access to your account by any third party.

You will not attempt to sell or otherwise transfer the benefit of your account to any third party and nor will you acquire or attempt to acquire an account which has been opened in the name of a third party.

2. Multiple accounts
From 1 January 2016, partners with an existing Begbot account are not permitted to open a new account with Begbot.

Any partner that already has more than one Begbot account on 1 January 2016 is required to nominate a single Begbot account to use across Begbot’s products by contacting the Begbot Helpdesk. Partners that continue to operate multiple Begbot accounts after 1 January 2016 will have their accounts ‘linked’ and managed accordingly. This may affect the extent to which Services can be used by such partners.

Should Begbot believe, using its absolute and sole discretion, that you have:

– registered and/or used more than one account; and/or
– acted in collusion with one or more other individuals through a number of different Begbot accounts to receive Bonuses and Discounts
in an attempt to exceed the maximum pay-out for an individual account holder across linked accounts, it reserves the right to withhold any profits arising from such behaviour.

3. Deposit and withdrawal of Funds
To use Services on Begbot, you need to deposit funds. Except as set out below, all funds in partner accounts are held by Begbot.com (Clients) Limited, a group company established solely for the purpose of holding partner funds (the “Trustee”), under the terms of the Trust Deed (the “Trust Fund”). Holding your money in the Trust Fund has the following benefits to you:

– in the unlikely event that Begbot (or any other operating company within the Begbot group) becomes subject to any insolvency proceedings, then your money will not be available to administrators/liquidators (or similar) and so you will be able to withdraw your money from your account as normal;
– the law of equity (which governs this Trust Fund) provides additional remedies to all beneficiaries of the Trust Fund (i.e. to all Begbot partners) that may not otherwise exist in a contractual relationship (eg a duty to act in good faith); and
– we have a number of additional controls in place over the Trust Fund to protect your money.
This arrangement meets the Commission’s requirements for the protection of partner funds at the level: high.

Your funds will not be held by the Trustee if: (i) there is a requirement for such funds to be held under the terms of any licence, in a separate non set-off bank account in the name of the licence holder; or (ii) where such funds are deposited via a third party payment provider (hereafter referred to as a “Payment Provider”). Funds deposited via a Payment Provider may take a few days before they are held by the Trustee under the terms of Trust Deed. During this period your funds will be held in the account of the relevant Payment Provider and will not be protected under the terms of the Trust Deed. Depositing by any method other than the following will be classed as a deposit via a third party Payment Provider: (a) bank transfer, (b) e-wallet, (c) credit card and (d) debit card.

The funds in your account are held on your behalf by way of security to meet any payment obligations you may incur as a result of using any of the services supplied by Begbot. Details of the manner in which the Trust is operated are set out in the Trust Deed.

You undertake that:

– all money that you deposit in your account is untainted with any illegality and, in particular, does not originate from any illegal activity or source; and
– all payments made into your account are authorised and you will not attempt to reverse a payment made into your account or take any action which will cause such a payment to be reversed by a third party, in order to avoid any legitimate liability.

You accept that all transactions may be checked to prevent money laundering and that any transactions made by you which Begbot deems suspicious, may be reported to the appropriate authorities.

We have a number of controls and checks that take place before any withdrawal request is processed by Begbot. These checks are part of our ongoing commitment to maintaining the security of our partners’ funds. All withdrawals requests are therefore only processed after the expiry of a set period of time from the withdrawal request being made.

4. Privacy
The information that you send to us will be processed in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

You authorise us, at any time, to use any means that we consider necessary to verify your identity and creditworthiness with any third party providers of information.

You agree to indemnify us and hold us harmless in respect of the release of any personal (or other) data pursuant to our Privacy Policy.

You agree that we may from time to time use your name, the name of your home town and/or your image in publicity and/or our promotional materials. We would always notify you before using your details and/or your image.

5. Indemnity
You acknowledge that Begbot and its affiliates will hold information with respect to your identity, including but not limited to your name, address and payment details. You agree that we rely on this information in entering into our agreement with you and you agree to hold us harmless against any falsehood or inaccuracy contained in the information you provide us.

6. Errors and Omissions
You will inform us as soon as you become aware of any errors with respect to your account and you will forfeit any amounts shown to be in your account that result from human error or technical fault.

7. Suspension or termination
Either we or you may suspend or terminate your account at any time, either with or without cause, upon notice (we will use our reasonable endeavours to give such notice to you either before or after suspending or terminating your account). Please contact the Begbot Helpdesk if you would like to close your account.

We may take steps to block you from using our site (or any part of it) or services if you are located in certain jurisdictions.

Following termination or suspension of your account, the Trustee will, in the normal course of events, return any funds in your account to you in accordance with the Trust Deed. Please contact the Begbot Helpdesk to recover any funds held in suspended or closed accounts.

However, we reserve the right to notify the Trustee to withhold the funds in your account from you pending the determination of any investigation (including any relevant external investigation) where:

– we suspect you have acted in breach of these Terms and Conditions or any other agreement relevant to your activities on our site, including where we suspect the account has been linked with fraudulent or dishonest activity; and/or
– we have to notify the Trustee to withhold the funds in your account by law or to comply with any advice, request or instruction from any governmental, regulatory or enforcement authority.

Following the determination of any such investigation we reserve the right to seize some or all of the funds in your account (by notifying the Trustee that the funds in your account should be released to us) if we are satisfied that you have acted in breach of these Terms and Conditions or any other agreement relevant to your activities on our site. We will deal with any funds obtained by us in this manner at our sole and absolute discretion and/or in accordance with any advice, request or instruction from any governmental, regulatory or enforcement authority.

In addition, if formally requested by the police, regulators or taxation or other authorities or in the event that you fail to provide us with sufficient information to identify yourself in accordance with our own internal procedures or those imposed on us by regulatory authorities (wherever based) we may suspend your account and all functionality relating to the use of your account (e.g. service management and withdrawal of funds) and notify the Trustee to withhold from you any funds in your account pending determination of any criminal or other legal proceedings or investigation to which such a request may relate or until you provide the necessary ‘know your client’ or ‘age verification’ information as appropriate.

For the avoidance of doubt at no point during any such period will interest accrue to you on any funds in your account.

For all registered partners, if you do not use your account for a continuous period of 30 months, any funds remaining in your account may be forfeited.

8. Assignment
You may not assign these Terms and Conditions to any third party. Begbot may assign, transfer or novate any or all of its rights and obligations under these Terms and Conditions to any third party at any time without notice to you.

9. Severability
In the event that any provision of these Terms and Conditions is deemed by any competent authority to be unenforceable or invalid, the relevant provision shall be modified to allow it to be enforced in line with the intention of the original text to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. The validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions shall not be affected.

Any provision of these Terms and Conditions that is invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction will be ineffective in that particular jurisdiction, without affecting the validity, legality or enforceability of that provision in other jurisdictions.

10. Dispute resolution
In the event of a dispute arising between us and you, we each agree to follow the procedure set out in our Dispute Resolution policy as amended from time to time.

11. Amendments
We reserve the right to make immaterial changes to these Terms and Conditions at any time. In relation to material changes, we will give you prior notice and/or to obtain your prior consent before making such changes and your continued use of the site will be deemed to be your acceptance of any material changes.

12. Communications and notices
Communications and notices to be given by you to us under these Terms and Conditions should be provided to us as set out in the Contact us section.

13. Governing Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms and Conditions will be governed by the laws of Hong Kong and the courts of Hong Kong have non-exclusive jurisdiction in relation to all disputes under these Terms and Conditions.
By accepting these Terms and Conditions, you agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the location that Begbot determines in its sole discretion, in respect of any disputes arising out of, or connected with, these Terms and Conditions.
Nothing in this paragraph shall prevent Begbot from applying to the courts of any jurisdiction for such provisional or protective measures as are available under the laws of that jurisdiction.
The rights and obligations under these Terms and Conditions shall not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and/or any local implementing legislation, the application of which is expressly excluded.

14. English Version
These Terms and Conditions have been prepared in various languages other than English for reference only. In the event of any differences between the English version of these Terms and Conditions and any non-English versions, the English version shall prevail.
