B. Exchange Transaction Provisions
6. Procedure and conditions of the exchange transaction
The ATM displays the preliminary exchange reference rate of FIAT is displayed in cryptocurrency and updated after a few seconds. By pressing the button ("Exchange now") or ("Complete") the FIAT/crypto exchange transaction (BUY or SELL) is bindingly executed within a few seconds and cannot be reversed. A reversal of the exchange transaction is also excluded.
The preliminary exchange reference rate which is displayed to the user on the ATM may deviate from the effective, bindingly executed reference rate due to market fluctuations and short-term excess supply or demand. Värdex Suisse has no influence on this.
7. Crypto Buy - transmission to ATM crypto paper wallet
After the effective exchange transaction has been carried out, the exchanged crypto amount is sent from ATM system via blockchain to the printed crypto-wallet of the holder. The crypto-paper wallet has a unique blockchain target address and the corresponding private key for access.
Due to characteristics inherent in the nature of the respective blockchain network, the wallet holders must also acknowledge and agree that sending crypto currencies to the user's wallet may take between 10 minutes and twenty-four (24) hours, provided that there are no unforeseen and unavoidable incidents on the respective blockchain network and Värdex Suisse services.
It is excluded at all times that the acquired crypto amount is sent to a crypto-wallet address other than that of the voucher card holder or user of the crypto-wallet.
The wallet owner shall ensure before carrying out the ATM exchange transaction that he/she is in possession of the crypto-wallet addresses (public and private key) and that these are undamaged and valid (QR code readable or plain text readable on the printed wallet). If the ATM exchange transaction is carried out by the user and afterwards the access to the received crypto value is not possible, Värdex Suisse assumes no liability. In particular, the user or wallet holder is responsible for the secure storage of the private key.
8. Crypto Sell
If no cash withdrawal is made at the ATM within 55 days after the sell of the crypto amount, Värdex Suisse will initiate a refund of the crypto amount minus a processing fee to the originating wallet due to regulatory requirements.
Additionally, if the value of the crypto has increased at the time of the refund compared to the time of sell, the amount of crypto to be refunded will be reduced accordingly in proportion.
9. Exchange limits and thresholds
Värdex Suisse ensures the regulatory correct execution of the ATM exchange transaction. In particular, Värdex Suisse intends to structure the exchange transaction as a two-party transaction (money exchange business).
The legal transaction limit of CHF 1,000 per person / month in Switzerland applies to transactions with cash. The legal transaction limit of CHF 1,000 per person / day in Switzerland applies to cashless transactions. To enforce these exchange limits, Värdex Suisse SA collects the telephone number for cash transactions or the last four numbers of the bank card used for cashless transactions.
In the event of suspicion, Värdex Suisse also reserves the right to prevent unlawful use of the ATM by shutting down the ATM.
For Premium ATM customers, the exchange limit is up to CHF 50.000 per person / day in Switzerland. The increased limit is only possible for customers who have successfully completed a KYC registration process, including online video identification with our partner IDnow. Värdex continuously carries out various transaction/account monitoring activities to ensure legal compliance with regulations on money laundering / terrorist financing or international sanctions. Värdex reserves the right to reduce or suspend the premium exchange limit for any or all customers, if needed.

10. Exchange transaction reference price
Through the ATM exchange transaction via Värdex Suisse Exchange Services, the user buys cryptocurrencies directly from Värdex Suisse or sells directly to this company. Värdex Suisse therefore does not act as an intermediary agency or marketplace between buyers and sellers of cryptocurrencies. The exchange transaction is subject to the Värdex Suisse reference price. By the term "reference price" Värdex Suisse understands the liquidity adjusted price of a given crypto-quantity in the respective national currency as quoted on the ATM. The reference price indicates either the "purchase price", i.e. the price in the local currency at which you buy cryptocurrencies from Värdex Suisse, or the "selling price", i.e. the price in the local currency at which you sell cryptocurrency. For all transactions that take place at the "reference price", the user agrees that the acceptance of the reference price as the only conversion factor is the condition for using the Värdex ATM service.
The ATM user acknowledges and agrees that the price of the cryptocurrencies depends on the reference price of the ATM system. Fluctuating market conditions as well as delays in third-party services (interfaces) can influence the reference price both positively and negatively. Värdex Suisse has no influence on this.
