This Contract relates to the provision of the Services as per Article 4 to the User via the opening of their Profile.
In order to use the Services, the User must access their reserved area on the Platform, after completing the Registration, Verification and Activation process referred to in Article 4 of this document. . During the Registration phase, the User will receive a personal username and password, i.e. the Credentials that must always be used to access the Services, regardless of the Platform used (or some of the Sites or the Mobile App). If the User accesses the Services through an Authorised Distributor, the Registration, Verification and Activation process may have customisations that do not affect the operation of the Customers, the processing of personal data and the relationship of each Customer with Young Platform.
The Services are offered together with at least one Banking Service that the User must identify to third parties in order to carry out the Wallet activation transfer.
The amounts deducted and/or transferred, both representing FIAT Currencies and Cryptocurrencies, involve a commitment by Young Platform to return the final value as reported on the Platform and not a commitment to return the FIAT currency or the Cryptocurrency transferred to the Platform itself.
The effectiveness of this contract is, therefore, subject to the User making at least one payment into the Wallet itself and correctly completing the form pursuant to Article 3 below.
Third-party services are not governed by these Terms and Conditions.
These contractual conditions are available on the Platform, together with any other information on the Services required by applicable law.
Registration, Confirmation, Verification and Activation
To access the Services, the User must complete the Registration process on the Application, then create their own Profile. In this regard, when filling out the appropriate Form during Registration, the User will be required to enter some or all of the following data:
- personal data;
- current and demonstrable residential address;
- copy of identity documents (tax code and identity card/passport or driving licence);
- residence permit;
- company data/registered office/VAT number/company email;
- personal data of the legal representative and tax code;
- billing data and certified email address;
- proof of residence and/or historical certificate of residence;
- mobile number of the account holder;
- company’s Chamber of Commerce extract, in the case of a legal entity;
- politically exposed person and/or family member of politically exposed persons (PEP);
- employment status, income and origin of funds;
- Credentials, i.e. email and password in order to access the personal/company profile.
Users will be solely responsible for the truthfulness and updating of this information for the duration of the relationship with Young Platform.
Through Registration for the Service, the User agrees to Young Platform sending information by email and/or SMS to facilitate the use of the Service.
As far as Registration by legal persons is concerned, the aforementioned data will be requested from the legal representative, with the Company reserving the right to request further information from the latter also by means of email communications and/or filling in ad hoc forms.
The Company reserves the right to refuse the Registration of a User if it is reasonable to believe that they will not comply with the Terms and Conditions and/or the Annexes, or also if irregularities and/or inconsistencies are found during the Registration phase preceding verification, as defined below.
If no formal irregularities and/or inconsistencies are found at the end of the Registration phase, Young Platform will send the User an email confirming Registration (the “Confirmation Notification”).
The Confirmation Notification will contain a link that the User must click to confirm their email, thus obtaining access to the Platforms to proceed with the use of the connected Services.
It is understood that before the Confirmation Notification, the Company reserves the right to decide at its own discretion whether to definitively accept and, therefore, authorise the contractual relationship with the applicant only after successful verification of the truthfulness and correctness of the data entered during Registration, or the KYC procedure (the “Verification”). At the end of the Verification phase, Young Platform will therefore notify the User, via the Confirmation Notification, of the activation of the Services (the “Activation”).
Following the Activation, the reclaimed funds are at the full disposal and responsibility of the Company within the limits of the provisions of Articles 7 and 8 below, which are an integral and essential part of the services referred to in Article 5, and do not enjoy the protections provided by the Deposit Guarantee Scheme or the segregation purposes provided for by the Applicable Regulations.
It is understood that the foregoing may be subject to customisation if access is made through Authorised Distributors.
The Credentials created by the User are valid for access on the Young Platform and Young Platform Pro Platforms. It is understood that the foregoing may be subject to customisation if access is made through Authorised Distributors.
The User must always use the Credentials they choose during Registration to access the Platforms and use the Services. The User is required to maintain the secrecy and security of their Credentials and, likewise, may not, under any circumstances, access the Profile of third parties.
The User may not communicate their Credentials to third parties and is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the information relating to their Profile, in particular, the Credentials. The parties mutually acknowledge that the User is exclusively responsible for managing any data or, in any case, any request from Young Platform, or mechanism, or validation tool, or double authentication, or similar, aimed at allowing remote identification of the User and aimed at preventing any form of unauthorised access to the account.
If the Credentials are compromised, the User is required to promptly notify Young Platform by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org, in order to suspend the Account and avoid unauthorised transactions.
As a result, the User assumes the obligation to bear any risk, prejudice, negligence, error, damage, cost or burden, none excluded, that Young Platform may suffer due to the User’s inadequate custody and storage of the Credentials owing to improper or negligent use of any data, or in any case, at any request of Young Platform or validation mechanism or tool or double authentication or similar.
Users also undertake to promptly update the data provided during Registration in the event of subsequent changes and variations.
It is understood that Young Platform cannot be held responsible for any losses of Cryptocurrencies and/or FIAT Currencies caused directly or indirectly by the loss of Credentials and/or sharing of Credentials with third parties.
4.4 Rules of conduct and commitments of the Parties

In this regard, Young Platform cannot be held responsible for any damage and/or loss caused by the loss and/or reckless sharing of the Credentials with unauthorized third parties. In this regard, please note that the Young Platform team will never be able to request a copy of the Credentials, particularly the password. In no case will we contact customers by telephone to carry out transactions on their behalf and/or to recommend investments of any kind. Users are asked to report any non-conforming behavior.
Young Platform Services and Platform Usage
5.1 Elements of the Services
The Services are offered to the User through the Platform in Italian and may also be available in English and French. The User undertakes to periodically check the instructions and regulations relating to the use of the Platforms and Services, as published on the website youngplatform.com/, and accepts, as of now, any technical updates adopted unilaterally by Young Platform and made available on the Sites.
5.2 Description of the Services
As regards the individual Tools, when requested, the User must first accept the terms and conditions related to the individual service in order to proceed with the activation. It is understood that failure to accept the contractual conditions connected to each of the Tools will make it impossible to use the connected service.

5.3 Third-party auxiliaries and software
To perform any activity necessary, useful or functional to preparing, managing, supplying and rendering the Services, the Company makes use of trusted members, employees and/or collaborators. Likewise, part of the services present on the Platforms is composed of technological components including those from third parties: see, for example, the implementation of the Satispay software among the connectable accounts. In this regard, Young Platform cannot be held responsible for any disruptions caused by such third parties as this is not in Young’s direct domain and control. However, please report any issues at support.youngplatform.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
Fees and Prices
Through the Platforms, Users may proceed to purchase the Services offered by Young Platform, paying for them directly at the time of the Order through the methods indicated, accepted and published within the Platform.
The type and extent of Fees and Prices, unless access is made through Authorised Distributors (in which case Commissions and Prices will be available on the Authorised Distributors’ platform), are identified in the document available at :
It is understood that Fees and Prices may be subject to customisation (always available on the website/platform of the Authorised Distributor of reference) if access is made through Authorised Distributors.
The following applies if the User uses the Services to buy and sell Cryptocurrencies for FIAT Currencies or vice versa, or to exchange Cryptocurrencies for another form of Cryptocurrency.
When placing a new Order through the Services, the User authorises Young Platform to execute a transaction in accordance with that Order and to charge them any applicable costs (as described in the “Fees and Prices” section).
7.2 Relationship of independence
The User acknowledges and accepts that:
- the Company does not act as a broker, intermediary, agent or consultant or as a trustee;
- no communication or information provided by Young Platform shall be considered or construed as investment advice, financial advice, business advice or any other type of advice;
- all operations are performed automatically, based on the parameters and instructions of the Order requested by the User and in accordance with the Services offered to the User;
- the User is solely responsible for determining the parameters and instructions of an Order;
- the User is aware of the possible risk of loss of the total holdings on his/her Wallet that may arise from the purchase, sale or holding of Cryptocurrencies and, further, that such risk is solely dependent on his/her decisions regarding such transactions in Cryptocurrencies and/or otherwise through the Services;
- Young Platform does not recommend the purchase, sale or possession of any Cryptocurrency. Before pursuing any of the above transactions, the User should conduct their own analysis (or “due diligence”) to evaluate all aspects of the Cryptocurrency they wish to buy, sell or hold;
- Young Platform will not be held responsible for decisions that the User makes on the purchase, sale or possession of Cryptocurrencies based on the information provided by the Company.
7.3 Exchange confirmation
Once the User has placed an Order through the Platform, a confirmation regarding the details of the sale will be made available electronically. The User acknowledges and agrees that the absence of such confirmation on the Platform will not affect or invalidate the terms of such Order.
7.4 Exchange rates
Whereas the User acknowledges and agrees that the exchange rate information made available through the Services may differ from the exchange rates made available through sources outside the Services, the Company undertakes to carry out the Orders given by Users without guarantee of execution, on a commercially reasonable basis, bound by the market conditions available over time.
7.5 Market volatility
Particularly during periods of high volume, illiquidity, rapid movements or market volatility for any Cryptocurrency or FIAT Currency with legal tender status, the effective exchange rate at which an Order is executed by the Platform may be different from the exchange rate indicated above, at the time when the User sends the Order. The User understands that the Company is not responsible for such price fluctuations. In the event of a market disruption or force majeure event, Young Platform may do one or more of the following: (a) suspend access to the Services: or (b) prevent completion of any action through the Services, including the closure of any open Order. The User acknowledges that, following a disruption or force majeure event, the effective exchange rates at which Orders are executed may differ significantly from the rates indicated above in such circumstances. It is understood that in this case, Young Platform will not be liable for any compensation and/or reimbursement.
Risk Disclosure – Purchase and Sale Risk
The User acknowledges and agrees to access and use the Services at their own risk. There can be a substantial risk of loss in the purchase and sale of Cryptocurrencies and/or FIAT Currencies. The User must therefore carefully assess whether this operation is suitable for their situation, in light of their circumstances and financial resources.
The User must also be aware of the following points:
- they may suffer a total loss of funds in their Wallet;
- under certain market conditions, it may be difficult or impossible to execute an Order. This can happen, for example, when there is insufficient liquidity on the market or in the Platform’s order-book;
- the inclusion of contingent orders, such as “stop-loss” or “stop-limit” orders as defined in detail at this link, will not necessarily limit the User’s losses to the expected amounts according to the exchange rate indicated by the User as a parameter in the Order, since market conditions could make it impossible to execute the order itself;
- all transactions with Cryptocurrencies involve a risk, and a “market” position cannot be less risky than a “long” or “short” position;
- in no way can Young Platform be held liable to the User for losses and/or other damages, except in cases of wilful misconduct. In any case, if it is held liable, this liability may not, in any case, exceed the value of the FIAT Currencies or Cryptocurrencies deposited by the User in their account, so that any damage suffered by the User is limited to a value not exceeding the deposits in the Wallet, and therefore net of transactions carried out.
Processing of User Data
Young Platform undertakes to process the User’s Personal Data acquired to execute the contract in the forms and within the limits imposed by the applicable legislation. The details relating to the processing of the User’s Personal Data are defined in the specific information provided to them before the conclusion of the contract.
Responsibilities of the User
The User is required to: a) regularly and securely save the data uploaded and stored in their personal area on the Platform and create backup copies, in order to recover such data in the event of loss (including reports and transaction histories); b) promptly respond to requests from Young Platform necessary for the latter to fulfil obligations imposed by the applicable legislation; c) promptly and accurately report to Young Platform any functional failures, malfunctions or damage to the Platform and the Services; d) ensure that the devices through which they access the Platform and the related software components do not cause any damage to Young Platform, to the Platform or other customers; e) indemnify and hold Young Platform harmless for all costs, losses and claims for damages, including those of other Young Platform customers and third parties, including the Supervisory Authorities, the Judicial Authority and any other Public Authority, that may arise against Young if the User violates the obligations arising from this contract, including any damages that may arise to Young Platform if the documentation and data provided by the User under their sole responsibility are false, unsuitable or incomplete; f) keep their Credentials confidential; g) not use another User’s Profile under any circumstances; h) use only accounts and/or cards registered in the User’s name.
The User is responsible for all costs, including legal defence costs, incurred by Young Platform for any violation of third-party rights caused by the User in the execution of this contract, including the use of the Platform or Young Services.
Suspension and Limitation of Young Platform Services
The User agrees that access to the Platform and the Services may be temporarily unavailable, suspended or restricted in the event of scheduled maintenance or events outside the control of Young Platform, which shall not be held responsible in any way for such circumstances. By way of example, but not exhaustively, events outside Young’s control include: force majeure events, acts of third parties not acting on behalf of Young Platform, technical conditions relating to the internet that cannot be influenced or controlled by Young, malfunctions of devices used by the User, cyberattacks and cases of unscheduled maintenance. Young Platform shall promptly inform the User in the event of scheduled maintenance that temporarily makes the Platform and/or the Services unavailable or limits access to them.
In the event of unavailability, suspension and limitation of the Services or access to the Platform, Young Platform undertakes to resolve the related problems and to restore the full functionality of the services due to the User within a reasonable period of time, taking into account the interventions necessary for this purpose. If the User breaches their contractual obligations, Young Platform has the right to take reasonable steps to prevent damage to the Platform and ensure the availability of the Young Services. Such measures may include the partial or total restriction of access to the Platform and the Young Services by the User, and, in some serious cases, the total blocking of operations.
Young Platform is relieved of all liability towards the User in cases where the breach or delay in performance of the obligations under these Terms and Conditions is due to force majeure events. For the purposes of this contract, a force majeure event is any event or circumstance beyond the reasonable control of Young Platform, which could not be avoided by the latter by resorting to the diligence, prudence and expertise of a reasonable and prudent operator and which has the effect of preventing Young Platform from fulfilling all or part of its obligations under the contract. By way of example and not exhaustively, the following are considered force majeure events: acts and measures of the public authority, general strikes, absolute lack of means of transport, war, revolt or other military actions, floods, natural disasters, pandemic or any other unforeseeable event beyond Young Platform’s reasonable control and that prevents the full and correct fulfilment of the contract.
Limitation of Liability of Young Platform
Young Platform is liable to the User solely for direct and immediate damages resulting from a violation of these Terms and Conditions due to Young Platform’s wilful misconduct or gross negligence. Young Platform will not be in any way liable to the User for the work of any partner and/or service provider of Young Platform and/or third party that provides services to the User via the Platform. Furthermore, Young Platform shall not be held liable for any issues relating to access by Users using Authorised Distributors, when such issues are related to the platforms and/or services of such Authorised Distributors.
Term, Termination and Right to Suspend
The User acknowledges and accepts that this contract is concluded for an indefinite period. The User may terminate the relationship with Young Platform at any time, notifying Young Platform by deleting their Profile, without needing to provide a reason.
In turn, Young Platform may withdraw from the contractual relationship by notifying the User in writing (including via email and/or notification on the Platforms) with at least 30 (thirty) calendar days’ notice, without needing to justify its decision.
Young Platform has the right to immediately terminate the contractual relationship, notifying the User in writing (including via email and/or notification on the Platforms), if one of the following circumstances occurs: a) the User does not pay the fees due for any reason within 5 (five) days from the time Young Platform notifies it that it has not received the payments due; b) the User does not provide Young Platform within 10 (ten) days with the information and data in the User’s possession that Young Platform requires to comply with obligations imposed by the applicable legislation; c) the User uses the Services for purposes and ends contrary to the law, the Terms and Conditions, public order or morality; d) the User causes damage to the Platform or the Services due to wilful misconduct or gross negligence, through the use of unauthorised software solutions, malware or other similar information tools; e) the User engages in behaviours that the Company deems negative and/or that may pose a reputational risk to it; f) the User does not log in to the Platform for more than 365 consecutive (calendar) days; g) the User appears on anti-crime, anti-terrorism and anti-money laundering lists, it being understood that in the latter case the Company reserves the right to immediately suspend the contractual relationship with the latter by unilaterally closing the account (subject to re-crediting of the balance).
If, in the case of f) above, the User remains inactive for more than 365 (calendar) days, Young Platform will inform the User that, if the User does not log in to the Platform within the next 15 (calendar) days, Young Platform will unilaterally terminate (with 30 days’ notice) and close the account, thereby terminating the contractual relationship. It is understood that what is identified in paragraph f) herein shall not apply if the User accesses the Services via Authorised Distributors.
In the event that there are active balances on a User’s Wallet, Young Platform will credit the User’s bank account upon closure, subject to confirmation of the credit details by the User. In the event that the balances are in the form of Cryptocurrencies, Young Platform shall convert them into FIAT Currencies before crediting the User’s bank account who shall then receive the countervalue in Euro on his/her bank account. It is understood that if Young Platform fails to contact the User, despite several reminders, and if the stocks are below the relevant threshold (i.e. a countervalue of EUR 1.99), the Company reserves the right to retain this amount. If the stock is higher than the minimum relevance threshold, Young Platform will proceed with the legal solutions.
Without prejudice to the right to terminate the contractual relationship referred to in the previous point, in the situations referred to in letters (a), (b), (c), (d), (e), (f) or (g) or in the circumstances where it has reason to suspect that the User is using the Platform in a fraudulent manner, Young Platform may decide to suspend the provision of the Young Services to the User until such time as the User provides the requested information and/or breaks the breach and/or until the fraudulent conduct of the User is ascertained and communicated to the User.
The termination of the contractual relationship for any reason results in the automatic termination of the agreements relating to the Services subscribed to on the Platform. In this regard, it is specified that, if the User has used and/or intends to use Instruments on his/her account (for instance: earning wallet, gift card, welcome bonus, etc.), and the same is subject to closure for one of the reasons referred to in Articles 10 and 13 of this document, these Instruments and any bonuses associated with them, if not yet accrued, may no longer be redeemed and/or used.
For the effects of termination of the latter, please refer to the terms and conditions of the agreements relating to banking services. Young Platform will delete the User’s account on the Platform, including all information associated with the account, including the User’s accounting data, 2 (two) weeks after the date of termination of the contractual relationship, without prejudice to the information that the applicable legislation requires to be retained. This is without prejudice to the User’s right to request or retain a copy of their data.
13.1 Death of the User
In the event of the death of a User, the Young Platform team, upon receiving notice of the death of the User, will collect the information necessary to proceed with the closure of the account of the deceased User and, also, to re-credit any balances to the heirs of the deceased User. Account closure is a permanent action and, once it has been carried out, all products and services that the User could access through that account will no longer be available.
Should the deceased User, at the time of account closure, hold a balance in Cryptocurrencies, such Cryptocurrencies will be converted into FIAT Currencies and credited back to the deceased User’s bank account. Should the deceased User only hold FIAT Currencies, they will be credited back to the current account of the deceased User in the same manner. The User acknowledges, for him/herself and his/her successors in title that, unless otherwise requested in writing by his/her heirs, YP will carry out the conversion from Cryptocurrency to FIAT Currencies at the exchange value existing at the time of the account closure, acknowledges that YP shall in no way be liable for the exchange value applied and undertakes not to dispute this exchange value in any way.
If the deceased User, at the time of account closure, still had active specific plans and/or Tools (including but not limited to: Earning Wallet Tool), these plans/tools will be deactivated at the same time as the account closure, resulting in the loss of any benefits not yet accrued.
Young Platform reserves the right to request all information necessary to authenticate the heir and/or assignee, in order to ensure that the applicant is authorised to act on behalf of the deceased User. In this regard, you may be required to submit supporting documentation (including execution of will or court order).
If the heirs and/or assignees fail to produce the documents to YP, YP will be obliged to apply to the judicial authorities for the appropriate measures.
It is understood that in the event that the User carries out the Access through an Authorised Distributor, the procedure for the re-crediting of the stock will be carried out in coordination with the said Authorised Distributor and always in the interests of the User and his/her heirs.
13.2. Contractual relation termination
The User consents to the termination of the existing contractual relationship with YP, subject to written notification by YP and without prejudice to the possibility of withdrawal. It is understood that in the event of a termination, the rights and conditions of this Contract shall not be affected, unless the User expressly agrees in writing.
Changes to the Contract
Young Platform may unilaterally modify the clauses and conditions set forth in these Terms and Conditions.
Changes to the Terms and Conditions and/or the Annexes that result in worse contractual conditions for the User will be communicated to the latter at least 30 (thirty) days before the date of application of the change. The User may withdraw from the contractual relationship free of charge by the date of application of the change. A proposed non-worsening change is considered accepted if the User does not withdraw from the contract before the date of application of the change and if the User operates under the new conditions. The conditions of withdrawal for the User will be indicated in the unilateral proposed change communicated to the User. Changes to this contractual relationship that result in improved contractual conditions for the User or are imposed by the applicable legislation may be applied by Young Platform at any time and with immediate effect. It is understood that any contractual changes may not apply and/or may apply differently if access is made through Authorised Distributors.
