  3. Service and Features

    ICOC-CERT offers an historical analysis and research service for those who request it to fight the forgery of honors and to certify the family coat of arm and genealogy with the purpose of registering, thanks to blockchain technology, the certificate of membership to an Order of Chivalry recognized by ICOC (the updated register can be downloaded from the footer of the Website), the Coat of Arm (provided it is already certified by a State King of Arms) and the genealogy to each entitled person (the “Service”). To carry out the analysis and checks on the User who requests them, we have documents available within our offices or we can request them under license to external partners such as public archives and other sources. In particular, our request can be sent chancelleries of Chivalry Orders to verify your belonging to them and to the Heralds.

    With that in mind, the Platform offers the following features:

    1. Order of Chivalry - by signing up an account on our Website you can purchase and obtain a blockchain notarized certificate of your Chivalry status. ICOC will verify through the Order Chancellery your eligibility and will issue the certificate;

    2. Coat of Arm - by signing up an account on our Website you can purchase and obtain a blockchain notarized certificate of your Coat of Arm. After an in-depth verification, ICOC will issue the certificate;

    3. Genealogy - By signing up an account on our Website you can purchase and obtain a blockchain notarized certificate of your Genealogy. As the complexity of this service depends on the number of generations, this service is offered through a quote and may be subject to price changes.

    4. Verify title - The validity of the issued certifications can be verified at any time through a dedicated smartphone mobile app (the “App”), able to read the QR code and thus displaying the authenticated document, or thanks to a service on our Website at the following link https://www.icoc-cert.com/verify-title.

The Certificate is cryptographically signed by ICOC-Cert and notarized on the Bitcoin network with OpenTimestamps.

These features are powered by Artvise, 20-22 Wenlock Road London N1 7GU - GB Company N. 12731513 that deals with the IT-technical work on User data and data recording thanks to blockchain technology (the “Technology Partner”).

    2. We can, at any time, at our discretion, unilaterally, without notifying you, invalidate and cancel your Certificate through the “Revoke title” button in our dashboard if the Order of Chivalry to which you belong informs us of your expulsion or if we become aware of any manipulation or cheating against us or of the sending of false documents. The User can also request the cancellation of the Certificate by informing us.

    3. To use the Service, Users will have to log in and request an order. After completing the registration, you can upload your User data, to access your personal area and request, your Certificate and allow ICOC to carry out all its verifications.

    4. Users remain solely responsible for the correctness and completeness of User Data, especially personal documents, and in any case for any other data, in any form, entered on the Service and / or in the order form with the exclusion of any liability of ICOC.

    5. With the sole exception of the Genealogy feature, by clicking “Purchase now” in the order window the User gives the consent to receive the Certificate, as described before, and the contract will be considered concluded.

    6. After completing the order, you will receive a fiscal receipt on your Account at the time of registration which will act as an acknowledgement of the intended request. ICOC endeavors to always process all requests, but there may be exceptional circumstances wherei, we may not be able to or have to refuse to process a request (e.g., if we receive a false order or a falsified genealogy we refund and reserve the right not to issue the Certificate without give any explanation to you).

    7. YOU AGREE AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE ANALYSIS WE PERFORM TO PROVIDE YOU WITH THE CERTIFICATE MAY HAVE A VARIABLE DURATION DUE TO THE HARD HISTORICAL RESEARCH OF THE DOCUMENTS ON YOU.

    10. Post receipt of appropriate authorization by our third-party payment partner, the User will be required to click on the order button. By doing so, the User is confirming to be the owner of the card or to be the legitimate holder. The User also represents to have sufficient funds to pay for the Service it has ordered.

    11. In the event of prolonged missing payment, except for greater damage pursuant to art. 1224 of the Italian Civil Code, the default interest will automatically take effect in favor of the subject(s) under applicable law at the rate established by law pursuant to Legislative Decree 231/2002 and subsequent amendments.

    12. Regarding the Genealogy feature, as the complexity of this service depends on the number of generations, the User shall contact us to obtain a quote with a custom offer (the “Custom Offer”) to the email provided at the time of registration or in a Custom Offer box available on the homepage before request a Certificate. The Custom Offer indicates the price and the period within which the User must proceed with the payment.
