PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY TO ENSURE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND EACH PROVISION. THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS A MANDATORY ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES PROVISION THAT REQUIRES THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS.
1. Owner of Website - This Website is owned by USForex, Inc., a company domiciled in the State of Delaware. The Website consists of public areas ("Public Area") with unrestricted access and private areas ("Private Area") with restricted access. Any reference to the Website is intended to apply to both areas.
2. The Website - The Public Area of the Website provides information about the mechanics of foreign exchange transactions and information about exchange rates. The Private Area allows you to book transactions, enter your nominated recipient bank account’s details and access information about your account online. You may also obtain some or all of the Services by telephone or email, in which case these terms and conditions will also apply to the extent that they are relevant. Any Services provided to you will be provided only pursuant to USForex's standard client agreement which you must agree to in addition to this agreement and prior to the provision of any such Services. In the event of any inconsistency between this Agreement and the relevant client agreement, the provisions of the client agreement will prevail.

Access to Private Area with Username and Password - When you enter into a Client Agreement with us, you will be able to obtain a username and password with prescribed levels of authority in order to enable you and your authorized representatives to access the Private Area of the Website and use the Services.

USForex will not check the identity of the User every time the username and password are used. It is your responsibility to ensure the security of your username and password.
