2.1. To access Services to Customer, the Customer must register and create an account on BTCX and be verified by GOOBIT.

Hence, GOOBIT may request information regarding the Customer's identity, residence, and assets, and documentation to substantiate this. If the Customer is a legal entity, GOOBIT may require information about the legal entity and the person(s) controlling the legal entity (including but not limited to registration certificate, shareholder register, and registered ultimate beneficial owner).
