The IOTA Foundation acts, in association with the Trinity Wallet App, as a software provider and is not a crypto-exchange or a place for buying or selling cryptocurrencies, and it is not another form of payment service in terms of ยง 1 of the German Payment Services Supervision Act.

There is a risk, therefore, that you are dealing with minors or persons using a false name.

This does not affect your right to close the Wallet.

  9. Amendments to these conditions shall be offered to you in text form (e.g. by e-mail) at least 2 months before the suggested time of taking effect. Your agreement counts as given if you do not object before the suggested time of the changes taking effect. If you do not agree to the changes, you can terminate without notice and free of charge before the suggested time of the change taking effect. In the message in which we offer the changes, we will specifically point out once again your right to objection, the deadline and your cancellation option. We will also publish the amended conditions on the Trinity Wallet App website. If we are only introducing a new service or a new function or making changes that do not negatively affect your rights or duties, we are entitled to announce them with a notice period of just one month. The appeal deadline is 3 weeks.
