The Terms of Business governs all the actions related to the execution of the Customer’s orders.
The Terms of Business are non-negotiable and overrides any other agreements, arrangements, express or implied statements unless FTD Limited, in its sole discretion, determines that the context requires otherwise.
The Customer acknowledges that he/she read, understood and accepted the Terms of Business as amended from time to time, in addition to any information contained within the Company’s website: www.ftdsystem.com
The following persons may not use the Website of the Company and Trading Platform, open an Account, enter into Transactions with the Company or use any of its services:
Customer needs to comply with the identification process and the proving of address, as the Company requires, in alignment with current Anti-Money Laundering Legislation. Thus, any governmentally issued and clearly scanned document – preferably the Passport, or the ID, for identification are acceptable by the Company. The Company also requires a recent (not older than 6 months) utility bill, or bank statement, for the proof of address.
The Customer must notify the Company of a change of address, or of any other change to the documents, that have been originally submitted, for approval.
In exceptional cases, the Company might enable a Customer that did not fully complete the registration - verification process to make a deposit and start trading, taking into consideration that the Customer filled in already the application form – online registration form (including the appropriateness test and Customer’s economic profile) and that the verification process will be completed within the next 15 days from the date of the Customer’s first deposit. This 15 days exception falls under certain requirements and it is up to the Company’s sole discretion to decide whether the Customer is considered to be low risk and therefore the exception might be granted.
In case that such exception is granted and the Customer did not manage to complete the registration - verification process within the 15-day period, then the Company will terminate the relationship with the Customer immediately on the 15th day and the Customer’s account including any open trades will be closed. Any remaining/outstanding balance shall be returned to the same venue from where the deposit was originated. The returned funds shall include any profits gained and/or losses incurred. Customers that wish to deposit via other payment methods, will not be entitled to this exception. If a Customer that met the requirements above, deposited and started with the trading activity, but decided to proceed with a withdrawal request, then the Company will return to the Customer the outstanding balance (including any profits that the Customer has gained and/or losses incurred) to the same venue from where the deposit was originated. It is noted that by implementing the said exception, the Company might decide to enforce additional enhanced due diligence measures.
In the case where a Customer is a legal person, the Customer is obliged to obtain a legal entity identifier (LEI) from an appropriate authority duly licensed to provide legal entity identifiers. In the case of a legal person, the Customer may not (where provided by Applicable Regulations) be able to execute any transactions with the Company if it does not possess a legal entity identifier.
In case following opening and approval of an account, it is revealed that the Customer is a resident in a country or region in which we consider that the provision of the services offered by us is prohibited, we shall have the right to suspend all activity in the Account and to take the following action: If you have not commenced trading, the balance outstanding in the Account will be refunded to the account from which the funds originated. Refunds may take up to (ten) 10 days to reach that account. If you have already traded during this period, you agree to authorize us to close out any open positions held by you at the closing prices prevailing on the day of the closeout and credit or debit the proceeds to the Account.
Where there is a balance outstanding in the Account;
The Customer is kindly reminded that the information shared with us, is kept under strict confidentiality.
On his/her part, the Customer should safeguard all his/her private information, like the access codes to the Platform (account number and password) and access to the private secure area (user name and password). Customers must never share this information with anyone else. The Customer shall be solely responsible for his/her trading account(s) opened with the Company – thus, the Customer should notify the Company immediately, if the access codes are used by someone else.
Fund transfers will be made only to the originating bank account. We will not make any fund transfers to any account in the name of any third party or to another account in your name. In cases where funds have been deposited using multiple bank accounts, funds will be transferred to the originating bank account(s) using a ‘first-in’, ‘first-out’ basis, unless we agree otherwise.
