I. Definition of Judicial Assistance
For the purpose of this Policy, judicial assistance refers to the fact that Huobi Global, in accordance with relevant international treaties, laws and policies, can assist judicial organs of various countries in investigating criminal cases they are handling. The assistance includes providing relevant information on cases involved, imposing restrictions on assets involved, and assisting in the implementation of effective judgments.
II. Subject of Judicial Assistance
As the subject of judicial assistance, Huobi Global Limited is registered in the Republic of Seychelles. Huobi Global is the digital asset trading platform (hereinafter referred to as the “Platform”) operated by Huobi Global Limited and currently has both web and APP terminals.
III. Judicial Assistance Procedure
Huobi Global shall be governed by the laws of the Republic of Seychelles and not by the laws of other countries and regions. Huobi Global shall be obliged to assist the judicial organs of the Republic of Seychelles in their judicial investigations of criminal cases. The information on the Platform shall be collected, generated, used, stored and destroyed in accordance with relevant laws of the Republic of Seychelles.
If the judicial organs of countries and regions outside the Republic of Seychelles need the cooperation of Huobi Global in judicial assistance, they shall submit an application for assistance to the central authority of the Republic of Seychelles in accordance with Chapter 135A of the Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters Act of the Republic of Seychelles. After the application is signed by the Attorney General of the Republic of Seychelles and becomes effective, Huobi Global shall provide assistance in accordance with the effective application.
In the event of force majeure such as natural disasters, social abnormal events, major health events, local wars and conflicts, or in the event that judicial organs of various countries cannot obtain timely legal assistance from Huobi Global through the central authority of the Republic of Seychelles, these judicial organs may send a request for assistance to Huobi Global via firstname.lastname@example.org. If it deems it necessary, Huobi Global will verify the authenticity of the request for assistance with the supervisory authorities of these judicial (law enforcement) organs and will decide whether to provide assistance in accordance with the laws of the Republic of Seychelles.
Assisting the judicial organs of countries other than the Republic of Seychelles in investigating criminal cases does not mean that Huobi Global recognizes that the laws of the countries where the judicial organs are located have jurisdiction over Huobi Global.
