- EXCHANGE SERVICES
15.1 Advertisements and trading: With a registered account you can create Bitcoin and Litecoin trade advertisements (“advertisement” or “ad” or “ads”) to advertise that you are purchasing or selling Bitcoins and Litecoins.
You may initiate Bitcoin and Litecoin trades (“trades” or “contacts”) by contacting advertisements created by other users or wait for users to initiate trades with you by contacting ads created by yourself.
By initiating Bitcoin or Litecoin trade, you agree to be bound by the advertisers terms of trade (“advertisers terms”) set forth by the advertiser and displayed as terms of trade on the advertisement page.
The terms of trade as determined by the advertiser are valid in all cases except when the advertisers terms contradict the Sleekarena Terms of Service or are illegal or if both parties of the trade consent to alter the terms of trade.
The price that is defined in the advertisement must contain any and all fees that the advertiser requires the user initiating the trade to pay.
After initiation of a trade the Bitcoin or Litecoin price is locked and cannot be changed or any additional fees added without consent from both parties of the trade and Sleekarena.
Bitcoin and litecoin advertisements must be placed in the correct payment method.
We may hide or remove your advertisements if you violate these Terms of Service or any other agreement you enter into with Sleekarena, or as otherwise specified in these Terms of Service or other agreement you have entered into with Sleekarena.
Valid payment details must be provided through the Sleekarena trade system. It is a violation of this terms of service to provide payment details through other communication channels.
In case a payment made by a Bitocin or Litecoin buyer to a seller is frozen, held, reversed, charged back or in other ways withheld from the Bitcoin or Litecoin seller, the buyer will be considered in breach of these terms of service. User information of the buyer can be provided to the seller to assist in recovery of the funds.
Bitcoin and litecoin must be held in escrow during the whole trade process until the seller has received payment in full.
Bitcoin and litecoin buyers must be able to, upon request by Sleekarena, provide adequate proof of payment for up to 180 days after the trade has been completed.
We use proprietary fraud and risk modeling when assessing the risk associated with your account, your ads and your trades.

15.3 Supporting Blockchain Forks and Other Cryptocurrencies: From time to time, new and alternative cryptocurrencies and/or forks of the Bitcoin or other Crypto Currency blockchain may be created, including in ways that allow persons who have access to a private key holding a balance to receive a corresponding amount of the new cryptocurrency on the other blockchain (“air-drop”).
We have the right, in our sole discretion, to decide on whether and how we support new cryptocurrencies and/or blockchain forks in our services, including also, if necessary, the determination of which blockchain shall be deemed as Bitcoin or any other Crypto Currency within the meaning of this Agreement.
In any case, we will strive to communicate our decisions concerning any significant new forks or cryptocurrencies on our website reasonably in advance. If we decide not to support a new cryptocurrency, we may decide, but are not obligated, to compensate customers who held that cryptocurrency on their Sleekarena account at the time of the air-drop in a manner deemed appropriate by us, such as by converting all of the available new cryptocurrency to Bitcoins and sharing all of the converted Bitcoins between the users who held a balance of that cryptocurrency on their accounts at the time of the creation of the new cryptocurrency.
In such an event, we have the right to charge you a processing fee for such conversion in any amount deemed reasonable to us in our sole discretion but not exceeding the amount of compensation payable to you.
If we decide to support a new cryptocurrency, unless otherwise communicated by us, these Terms of Service, including any reference to Bitcoin, shall be equally applied to the new cryptocurrency.
In order to handle a blockchain fork in a way that ensures the security and reliability of our services, we may deem it necessary to temporarily suspend the services. In such cases, we will resume the services as soon as reasonably possible in our discretion.
We cannot guarantee that the decisions we take under this Section will be suitable, desirable or practical to you. If you are concerned about our decisions, stances or the lack thereof regarding any given blockchain fork or new cryptocurrency, we recommend that you withdraw your balance and handle the situation on your own as you see fit. We are therefore not in any circumstance liable for any damage, losses, expenses or harm resulting to you from the use of our rights under this Section.
15.4 Disputes with Bitcoin trades: If the buyer and seller of a Bitcoin or Litecoin trade are in disagreement over a trade, either party or Sleekarena may initiate a dispute. Disputed trades are resolved by Sleekarena support staff.
When sellers turn unresponsive, we will resolve the dispute to the buyer if we are confident the seller has received valid payment from the buyer. If the buyer is unresponsive the seller may dispute the trade and we will resolve the dispute to the seller.
After the trade has been released by the seller, cancelled by the buyer or automatically cancelled due to not being marked as paid, the trade is considered finished and cannot be disputed, reversed or altered.
Providing fraudulent information or documents in a dispute or making false claims or otherwise trying to force a certain outcome of a disputed trade is considered a violation of this agreement. If payment details are provided outside of Sleekarena the dispute may be resolved without taking the payment details into consideration.
15.4 You consent and agree not to reverse any Transaction for the purchase of Crypto currency such as by recalling a transfer or initiating a chargeback. Any attempt by you to reverse a Transaction might result in closure or termination of your account, and seizure of any Crypto currency left in your account, in order to mitigate losses. Furthermore, we reserve the right, where necessary, and under our sole discretion, to take any and all legal actions against you to recover any losses we incurred as a result of your reversal of a Transaction.

Any amounts charged by us will be displayed to you on our site prior to the transaction, submission of advertisement or other action or service on which the fee is based.
