"GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE
**PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THESE GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE (HEREINAFTER REFERRED TO AS "T&C") GOVERNING THE USE OF THE ALTME SERVICE. THESE T&C CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR RIGHTS, REMEDIES, AND OBLIGATIONS.
BY USING THE ALTME SERVICE, YOU UNCONDITIONALLY ACCEPT THESE GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE, AND THEY APPLY TO ALL USERS.
THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THEY HAVE RECEIVED ALL NECESSARY INFORMATION BEFORE COMMITTING, THROUGH THESE T&C AND ANY OTHER DOCUMENT BROUGHT TO THEIR ATTENTION."
This document aims to establish the terms and conditions under which Web3 Digital Wallet, hereinafter referred to as "the Provider," offers Users access to the ALTME Service, hereinafter referred to as the "Service."
The User's access and use of the Service, as described in these T&C, signify their acceptance of these General Terms and Conditions of Use. These T&C are applicable to all Users.
Both parties declare that they have received all necessary information before committing, as provided in these T&C, and through any other documents that may be made available to them.
The Service is provided by the company WEB3 DIGITAL WALLET, a simplified joint-stock company, SIREN 910 399 435 (RCS Chartres), with its registered office at 112 RUE DES TUILERIES 28260 SAINT-OUEN-MARCHEFROY, France.
The Altme Wallet is a mobile application developed by Web3 Digital Wallet, available for both iOS and Android devices. You can conveniently download it from Apple's "App Store" and Google's "Play Store."
These General Terms and Conditions serve to establish the contractual relationship between Web3 Digital Wallet and users concerning access to and utilization of a crypto-asset management service and a decentralized identity service.
Please note that Web3 Digital Wallet retains the right to make modifications to the service and, consequently, to these General Conditions whenever necessary. Such changes will take effect upon publication or on any specified date. Users will be duly notified of any alterations to the T&Cs. However, it remains the user's responsibility to refer to the most recent version of the T&Cs, which can be accessed at any time on the website: altme.io.
The Altme Wallet is a non-custodial wallet software meticulously designed for managing Verifiable Credentials and Digital Assets. These Digital Assets encompass cryptocurrencies (coins) and NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens). As a non-custodial wallet software, users enjoy complete control and responsibility over their personal data, digital assets, and private keys, enabling them to authorize transactions from their wallet address.
The "ALTME" Application provides Users access to a wide range of Services, which include:
1. Collecting Credentials: Users can collect Credentials from various partner third-party issuers, including Web3 Digital Wallet and other third-party companies or organizations. As of November 11, 2022, the list of available Credentials encompasses:
2. Storing Credentials: Users have the capability to securely store their collected Credentials throughout their validity period.
3. Presenting/Sharing Credentials: Users can share their Credentials with third-party websites or applications that require verification for access to their services.
Other parties (verifiers) can initiate identity requests to you through existing peer-to-peer connections. These requests come pre-filled with identity credentials already stored in the app. You have the option to manually update this information if additional relevant identity attributes are available. Upon your active consent to share this information, the selected identity credentials are transmitted to the requesting party.
The responsibility for storing your data lies with the requesting party, and they are accountable for legally compliant data handling. Web3 Digital Wallet assumes no responsibilities or obligations in this regard. The role of the Altme wallet is limited to facilitating the exchange of information among participants. If the requested identity information is not found within the app, you will receive an appropriate error message. The missing identity information must first be provided to you by another participant before the request can be fulfilled.
In cases where you choose not to respond to an identity request, you have the option to reject it. In such instances, no information will be shared with the requesting party.
Upon successful completion of credential requests, you will receive a confirmation message.
To use the Altme Wallet, you must either import an existing wallet or create a new one. When you create a wallet, you'll receive a Recovery Phrase. It's your responsibility to promptly notify us of any unauthorized use of your Recovery Phrase, private keys, or any other security breaches related to your wallet. You acknowledge and agree that you assume all risks associated with using our services and are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your Recovery Phrase and private keys.
When creating a wallet, we strongly recommend taking precautionary measures to prevent any loss of access or control over your wallet. These precautions may include, but are not limited to:
However, Web3 Digital Wallet holds no liability for any activities occurring on your wallet, whether authorized by you or not.
Altme's service is underpinned by innovative technologies, including Blockchain and Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI). It empowers users to maintain their digital identity on their smartphones, eliminating the need to store their data on identity provider servers.
User data is securely stored, either encrypted within the wallet or optionally encrypted on a server for recovery purposes. Users maintain exclusive access to their data and have the flexibility to transfer it to third parties for accessing services. Additionally, users are the sole entities authorized to collect data from organizations.
In essence, this wallet serves as an online rendition of the traditional wallet, housing both payment methods and personal information, all within the user's control.
1°) Connection to a Third-party Site or Application from a Computer:
To accomplish this, follow these steps:
2°) Connection to a Third-party Site or Application from a Mobile or Tablet:
If you access the altme.io site from a mobile or tablet, you will encounter an "open the application" or "download the application" button instead of a QR Code.
Users have the option to collect credentials for both age and identity verification from the following Issuers:
If you decide to utilize the La Poste Digital Identity Verification service, you must either possess an existing La Poste Digital Identity or create one. Before creating your La Poste Digital Identity, it's imperative that you carefully review and accept the terms and conditions provided by the Issuer. Failure to accept these terms and conditions will impede your ability to create your La Poste Digital Identity, consequently preventing you from collecting Credentials from this Issuer. By proceeding, you acknowledge and agree to these conditions. Once your La Poste Digital Identity is established, you can authenticate with the La Poste Digital Identity service and consent to share both your proof of age and identity. The proof of age is derived from the initial date of birth collected by the La Poste Digital Identity, and only the proof of age is retained by the Application. Your date of birth is neither collected nor stored by the Application.
Alternatively, if you choose to use the Remote Identity Verification Journey (PVID) by Docaposte, you will need to present an eligible identification document and complete a video recording of your face. The Remote Identity Verification Journey (PVID) offers a User authentication process that encompasses the examination of their identification documents through photography and a real-time verification process via a video challenge. This verification ensures that the individual in possession of these documents is indeed their rightful owner. Before initiating the Remote Identity Verification Journey (PVID), it is crucial to meticulously review and accept the terms and conditions provided by the Issuer. Failure to accept these terms and conditions will result in you being unable to utilize the Remote Identity Verification Journey (PVID) and subsequently unable to collect Credentials from this Issuer. By proceeding, you acknowledge and accept these conditions.
Confirmation via Blockchain:
In order for all proposed digital asset transactions to reach their finality, they must undergo confirmation and recording on the associated public blockchain. These blockchains operate as decentralized, peer-to-peer networks supported by independent third parties that are neither owned, controlled, nor operated by Web3 Digital Wallet. It's important to note that Web3 Digital Wallet has no influence or control over these blockchain networks, and therefore, cannot assure that transaction details submitted by users through Web3 Digital Wallet services will always be confirmed and processed promptly. By choosing to use the Altme Wallet, the user explicitly acknowledges and agrees to the following:
This service is exclusively available to users aged 18 and above. When the user utilizes Altme Wallet to purchase digital assets using their credit or debit card, a third party will convert the chosen amount into the applicable Digital Asset and credit it to the user's wallet. It's important for the user to acknowledge and agree to the following:

Web3 Digital Wallet does not actively monitor the NFTs and NFT Content stored on Altme Wallet for any infringement of a third party’s intellectual property rights.
As such, Web3 Digital Wallet assumes no liability for any action regarding any content provided by the user. The user further acknowledges and agrees that it is their sole responsibility to conduct all necessary due diligence for all their activities related to NFTs. The user represents and warrants that they have not relied on, and shall have no remedies in respect of, any statement or representation made by Web3 Digital Wallet in relation to any transfer or interaction with any NFTs.
In the event of a dispute related to the NFTs and/or NFT Content, THE USER RELEASES WEB3 DIGITAL WALLET FROM CLAIMS, DEMANDS, AND DAMAGES OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH SUCH DISPUTES. BY ENTERING INTO THIS RELEASE, THE USER EXPRESSLY WAIVES ANY PROTECTIONS (WHETHER STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE) THAT WOULD OTHERWISE LIMIT THE COVERAGE OF THIS RELEASE TO INCLUDE THOSE CLAIMS WHICH THE USER MAY KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN THEIR FAVOR AT THE TIME OF AGREEING TO THIS RELEASE.
