The iGolder platform is designed for individuals living in
third-world countries where it is extremely difficult to obtain a
merchant account. We welcome all kind of businesses, as long
as those businesses are not engaging in criminal activities. As a rule of thumb, if a business activity is
legal in your country, then you have our blessing. Certain type of businesses, although legal, are
excluded because they do not correlate with our mission of expanding the division of
labor. iGolder does not endorse any type of
zero-sum game, such as

people's relationships and selling broken promises.

in any of the following activity:

Account Termination Warning
iGolder is not in the business of terminating accounts without
cause or without warning. We won't put our
nose in your business, however if we receive a high ratio of
complaints from other members who purchased your product, we will
give you a warning. A warning is usually associated with a
Demerit Point which increases
the transfer fees. If the ratio of complaints remains high
and you make no effort to address the issue, then we will
terminate your account (see below for details).
We want to have as many members as possible, so it is not in our
interest to terminate any account. We also promise to
investigate the soundness and legitimacy of the complaints before
issuing a warning. We take pride in offering a secure and reliable
platform to our members, and want our members to know they can rely on iGolder as a pillar
for their business.
Ultimately, iGolder reserves the right to reassess your membership
eligibility if you fail to comply with our Account Agreement.
If you receive a notice of account termination, your gold will
remain in your ownership for as long as you wish, however your
account will no longer be allowed to receive any gold from other
members. You will retain the full right to exchange (sell) your

We are personally against rewarding offenders for their
criminal activities, and if we terminate an account regarding a
criminal activity, we will not allow the criminal to keep his
gold. Instead, iGolder will dispose the stolen gold to
compensate the victims of the crime.
iGolder considers all high-yield investment
programs as outright fraud, and iGolder will terminate any such account
without a warning. We do not want to touch any HYIP with a
ten-foot pole, and we are serious about it. If we discover
an HYIP, we will consider all participants as a violators of the
account agreement with the intent to defraud iGolder. The owner of the HYIP account will not be
allowed to keep any gold, and the gold will not be returned to
other members who colluded in the pyramid scheme. Instead,
iGolder will use the gold to hire more staff to track down
high-yield investment programs and will issue a
Demerit Point to all members
who "invested" in the HYIP. You are
responsible of educating yourself about the
definition of a
Investment Program, and if in doubt, feel free to
contact us before participating in it.
