In these Terms of Services, the term "Services(s)" refers to our platform as well as any such service or services provided by FTW. These Terms will also apply to any new features or tools that are included which present the Services.
We may from time to time add new features to our Services and update these Terms. Please check back on these Terms for any updates.

III. Your Account
A. CREATING YOUR ACCOUNT
To use our Services you must create and register an FTW account. During registration we will ask you to provide us with your full legal name, age, business address, phone number, a working email address, and any other information specified in the account registration form. You may also be required to send a photocopy of 1 piece of government issued ID showing your age (such as a driver’s license) (your “ID”) to our age verification department at IDV@fintechwerx.com] in order to access certain Merchant Services.
To allow us to quickly verify your identity and ensure that you are a real person, we may use liveness detection (a technique where an algorithm securely detects whether the source of a biometric sample comes from a fake representation or is a live human being) at registration. We may store the biometric template of your face, taken from a facial scan captured during the liveness test, to verify that it is you accessing Your Account. A biometric template is a digital reference of distinct characteristics that has been extracted from your facial scan and, for your security, this is done in such a way that the original facial scan cannot be retrieved from this template.
You agree that we may contact you using the email address you provided during registration or as amended by you from time to time ("Your Email Address"). You are responsible for keeping track of Your Email Address and you must be able to send and receive emails. We can only authenticate your communications with us if these communications come from Your Email Address.
B. YOUR ACCOUNT
After completing registration, we will provide you with a unique and secure account (“Your Account”) on our Network that will allow you to access our Services.
Your ID on file with us will not be shared with our Merchants. Instead, the account information you decide to share with our Merchants will be contained in a separate profile created by us called a WerxID. Please see WerxID Sharing for more information.
We reserve the right to refuse your request for an account or to terminate your active Account for any reason.
C. ADDITIONAL VERIFICATION
If you decide to add Personal Information to Your Account that we are unable to verify through your ID, you agree that we may verify this Personal Information by running additional background checks with the applicable body who issued the information, including making requests from the applicable government bodies, professional organizations, educational institutions, your employer, your landlord or credit reference agencies. Such checks may include verifying your credentials or your banking details, if you have added this information to Your Account.
You may also request that the applicable authorities, agencies or persons to provide you with the appropriate verification documents. You may upload these documents to Your Account page to allow us to verify your additional Personal Information. You may also make these documents available directly to our Merchants, at your sole discretion.
While we reserve the right to verify your Personal Information, we have no obligation to do so. You are solely responsible for ensuring the Personal Information you upload on Your Account page is current, relevant, genuine and accurate.
YOU AGREE TO INDEMNIFY, DEFEND, RELEASE, AND HOLD US HARMLESS FROM ANY CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO YOUR FAILURE TO PROVIDE ACCURATE, TRUTHFUL AND UP TO DATE PERSONAL INFORMATION.
IV. Your Responsibilities
You may only create one Account (and corresponding WerxID) on our Site.
When creating or updating Your Account, you may only upload information that is accurate, complete, and up to date. Failure to do so constitutes a breach of these Terms, which may result in immediate termination of Your Account and our Services. You may access Your Account by logging on to our Site and may update your account details or upload additional Personal Information or your most recent ID as necessary.
You may only access our Services using your own Account. You are responsible for keeping all passwords and other login details secure and confidential. You agree not to disclose your password to any third party and agree to notify us immediately upon becoming aware of any breach of security or unauthorized use of Your Account.

V. WerxID Sharing
You are solely responsible for deciding when you want to use our Network to identify yourself to a Merchant. You may also request additional information from a Merchant to assist you in deciding whether you want to provide them with your Personal Information. Whenever a Merchant asks you to share your Personal Information through the Network, you are always in control of whether to accept the Merchant’s request. We encourage our Merchants to limit their requests to the minimum information required and reserve the right to terminate our relationship with any Merchant who, in our sole discretion, does not comply with our policies. If you believe that a Merchant is conducting itself inappropriately or requesting too much information or irrelevant information, please contact us at email@example.com.
If you choose to reveal any Personal Information to a Merchant or other users of the Site, you do so at your own risk. We encourage you to use caution in disclosing the Personal Information contained in your WerxID to anyone.
Whenever you share Personal Information with a Merchant, you and the Merchant will each receive notification through the Account of the sharing. We will retain records of information sharing within the Network (each, a “Receipt”).
We may allow you to add and accept attributes from certain Merchants into Your Account, for example university degrees, professional qualifications, employer references, landlord references and so on. However, as set out in Your Responsibilities, you may only upload or accept third party attributes to Your Account that are current, relevant, genuine and accurate.
While you alone may decide what Personal Information to share, we reserve the right to inform our Merchants (by making notes on your file or other means) whether the Personal Information you have shared is verified or unverified. We also reserve the right to inform our Merchants how such Personal Information has been verified, including naming the appropriate authority, body or persons who verified such Personal Information.

You’re free to close Your Account at any time by selecting the “Delete Account”, or a similar option in “Settings” in the Account menu.
If you or we close Your Account, you will lose access to your account and to all of the information and services associated with it.
