Terms of Use

Effective Date: August 26, 2014

Welcome to Libra, an innovative capital gains tax calculation service for Bitcoin, Ripple, and other digital currencies. The service described herein (“Service”) is provided by Libra Services Inc., a Delaware corporation.

These Terms of Use are a legally binding agreement made between You (“You,” “Your,” or “Yourself”) and Libra (“Libra” “We,” “Us” or “Our”), and set forth the applicable terms and conditions governing the use of Our Service, so please review them carefully. By creating a Service account with Us, You also accept and agree to be subject to and abide by Our Privacy Policy, which is incorporated herein by reference.

We may choose to update these Terms of Service at any time by posting an update to this page. We encourage You to review these Terms of Service periodically, as Your continued use of the Service will mean You accept those changes, whether You have read them or not. In addition, You and Libra shall be subject to any posted guidelines or rules applicable to the Service, which may be posted from time to time.

1. Description of Service

Libra is the first comprehensive tool for calculating capital gains taxes across multiple digital currencies, including Bitcoin and Ripple. Libra will track sales taxes and payroll taxes for such digital currencies, eliminating the anxiety arising from transacting in such novel digital currencies.

2. Registration

As a condition to using the Service, You are required to create an account by registering with Us directly. In that registration process, We require that You provide only Your email address. The registration information You provide must be accurate, complete, and current at all times. Failure to do so constitutes a breach of these Terms of Use, which may result in immediate termination of Your account.

In registering for the Service, You represent that You are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred from receiving products or services under the laws of the United States or other applicable jurisdictions. You may not use the email address of another person or entity that is not lawfully available for use, a name or trademark that is subject to any rights of another person or entity without receiving appropriate authorization, or a name that is offensive, vulgar, or obscene.

3. Pricing, Billing, Cancellation, and Refunds

Certain features of the Service may be provided for a fee. If You elect to use paid aspects of the Service, You agree to the pricing and payment terms below. Libra may add new services for additional fees, or amend fees and charges for existing services, at any time in its sole discretion. Any pricing changes or new payment terms shall become effective in the billing cycle following notice of such change to You as provided in these Terms of Service.

Libra accepts credit cards and will automatically charge Your credit card monthly or each time You purchase a paid service, depending upon which payment options You select. If any fee is not paid in a timely manner, or Libra is unable to process Your transaction using the credit card information provided, Libra reserves the right to suspend or revoke access to Your account. All fees and charges are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods of time.

Libra may change the fees and charges in effect, or add new fees and charges from time to time, but we will give You at least two weeks (14 days) advance notice of these changes by email. If You want to use a different credit card or if there is a change in Your credit card validity or expiration date, You may edit Your information by accessing Your account page. If Your credit card reaches its expiration date, Your continued use of the Service constitutes Your authorization for us to continue billing that credit card and You remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. It is Your responsibility to keep Your contact information and payment information current and updated.
