  2. 4. ENTERING INTO A CONTRACT
    1. 4.1 Placing a Request
      1. 4.1.1 To enter into a Contract with us, you must provide us with the information we require to provide you with a quote. This information includes the amount and currency of Traded Funds you require and the proposed Value Date (if you wish to enter into a Trade Contract) and the details of the Beneficiary Account (if you wish to enter into a Payment Contract).
      2. 4.2 On receipt of this information, we may (at our absolute discretion) provide you with a relevant non-binding foreign exchange rate quotation and details of charges (if any) and the remainder of the Pre-Contract Information. You may use this quotation to place a Request with us. You may place a Request in the following ways:
          1. a) orally, over the telephone using the contact details set out in Clause 30.2;
          2. b) using the Online Platform;

      1. 4.2.1 When you make a Request on the telephone, you will be provided with the Pre-Contract Information on the telephone. Requests made on the telephone shall usually be accepted by us over the telephone. Once a Request has been accepted by us, a binding Contract has been entered into between you and us.
      2. 4.2.2 If you are placing a Request via the Online Platform, you will have an opportunity to review the details you have entered (this is the Pre-Contract Information). Once you have confirmed that the Pre-Contract Information is correct, your Request will be submitted to us. Once the Request has been accepted by the Online Platform, a binding Contract will be created between us and you. For the purposes of this paragraph, a Request is ‘accepted by the Online Platform’ upon the Request appearing as ‘confirmed’ on the confirmation screen. It is essential when placing Requests using the Online Platform that you enter your information correctly.
      3. 4.2.3 If you provide your Request in writing or your Request is a Market Order (as such term is defined in clause 7.1), we shall accept your Request by telephone, email or via the Online Platform.
    3. 4.3 Formation of a Contract
      1. 4.3.1 We are in no way obligated to accept a Request from you or an Authorised Trader. In particular, we can refuse to act on any Request that we believe or suspect: (i) was unclear; (ii) was not given by you; or (iii) might cause us to breach a legal or other duty; or (iv) if we believe the Contract is being used for an illegal purpose. Specifically, we reserve the right to refuse to execute or delay executing a Payment if we are not completely satisfied that the Request for a Payment is from you.
      2. 4.3.2 We are entitled (but no obliged) to act upon Requests which are or reasonably appear to be from you or an Authorised Trader. In particular, a Request received from an e-mail address or telephone number registered with us as belonging to you or an Authorised Trader and/or generally used by you and/or an Authorised Trader to communicate with us shall be sufficient to authenticate a Request as being from you, and we shall be entitled to act upon Requests and instructions received from communication channels provided to us by you.
      3. 4.3.3 If we accept your Request, you cannot cancel, rescind or amend it without our express consent and (subject to Manifest Error) the Contract will be binding between us and you on and subject to the terms of this framework agreement. We will, when making a determination as to whether a situation amounts to a Manifest Error, act fairly towards you but the fact that you may have entered into, or refrained from entering into, a corresponding financial commitment, Contract or transaction in reliance on a Request placed with us (or that you have suffered or may suffer any loss) will not be taken into consideration by us in determining whether there has been a Manifest Error.
    4. 4.2 Contract Notes evidencing the Contract

Each Contract will be evidenced by a Contract Note. We will endeavour to send each Contract Note via email, unless you specify post or fax, to you as soon as possible. However, our failure to send a Contract Note in respect of a particular Contract does not in any way invalidate any Contract entered into between you and us and will not prejudice the rights and obligations of either party under that Contract. If there is an error on the Contract Note, you must inform us immediately. Failure to notify us of any errors on the transaction will not entitle you to treat the Contract as void and we will presume that you have revised the Contract Note and agree that the Contract Note reflects the terms of the Contract entered into. If you have not received the Contract Note within 24 hours of placing your Request, you must notify us as soon as possible.

  2. 8. OTHER TERMS RELATING TO TRADE CONTRACTS
    1. 8.1 We will set limits on the amount of a Trade Contract which you and all of your Authorised Traders can enter into. This limit may be amended or removed by us from time to time at our absolute discretion.

It may not be possible to recall a Payment after the time for cancelling or altering set out above. Having said this, we will attempt to do so as far as is reasonably possible. 
    6. 9.9 Where the Payment is denominated in:
      1. 9.9.1 Euro or Sterling, we shall ensure that the amount of the Payment is credited to the Beneficiary’s payment service provider’s account by the end of the Business Day following that on which the relevant Request was deemed to be received;
      2. 9.9.2 a currency other than Euro or Sterling but the account of the Beneficiary’s payment service provider is located within the European Economic Area (‘EEA’), we shall ensure that the amount of the Payment is credited to that account by the end of the fourth Business Day following that on which the relevant Request was deemed to be received; and
      3. 9.9.3 a currency other than Euro or Sterling and the account of the Beneficiary’s payment service provider is located outside the EEA, we shall endeavour to ensure that it actions the Payment as soon as is reasonably practicable.
    7. 9.10 Following the completion of a Payment Contract, we will send the following details to you by email by the end of the Business Day that the Payment was initiated:
      1. 9.10.1 a reference enabling you to identify the Payment made;
      2. 9.10.2 information on the Beneficiary Account;
      3. 9.10.3 information on the amount of the Payment, shown in the currency of the Payment; and
      4. 9.10.4 a breakdown of the charges and/or interest payable by you.

    9. 9.12 Please note that although we specify the date upon which we expect the Funds or the Traded Funds (as applicable) to be credited to the Beneficiary Account, we cannot be responsible for any delays due to how the receiving bank processes the payment. We cannot guarantee that the receiving bank will make the Funds or the Traded Funds (as applicable) available to the Beneficiary on the day that it receives payment. Where the Beneficiary’s bank is based in the EEA, it will be subject to maximum processing time rules.
    10. 9.13 We will set limits on the amount of a Payment which you and all of your Authorised Traders can enter into. This limit may be amended or removed by us from time to time at our absolute discretion. In addition to this, we can also set, remove and amend limits, at your request, on the amount of a Payment which individual Authorised Traders can enter into on your behalf.
  1. 10. CHARGES
    1. 10.1 Subject to Clause 10.2, we reserve the right to charge the following fees for each Payment:
      1. 10.1.1 £5 (or equivalent currency) for a Payment made by SEPA; and

      3. 10.1.3 there will be no charge for Payments made in Pounds sterling.

These charges are levied by us to offset the costs we incur from our banking provider for making Payments.

    1. 10.2 For each Trade Contract with a value of £5,000 or more (or currency equivalent), you will be entitled to one free Payment associated with the Traded Funds from that Trade Contract.

    3. 10.4 In some circumstances a number of intermediaries (such as correspondent banks) may be involved in an international Payment and they or the Beneficiary’s bank may deduct a charge. We will use our reasonable endeavours to avoid these charges or to otherwise ensure that such charges are disclosed in our contractual terms. You acknowledge that these charges cannot always be calculated in advance and that you are responsible for such charges. Please advise us if a specific amount must arrive in the Beneficiary Account as we may be able to pre-cover any undefined charges. You should ensure that you clearly discuss third party fees and charges when providing us with instructions for a Payment, as we will not be liable for losses that result from such charges being applied to your Payment.
    4. 10.5 Where the Beneficiary Account is located within the European Economic Area (EEA) and the transaction is in Euros, Sterling or another EEA-state currency, we would not normally expect there to be any deductions.
    5. 10.6 We are not liable for any direct or indirect losses that result from intermediary/ correspondent/ receiving bank fees.

    2. 13.2 In the event we are required to extend or cancel the Contract, we may have to enter into a second currency transaction (the ‘Second Transaction’) to Close-Out our position in the market. In that event, we will charge you our reasonable costs incurred for the Second Transaction and for any loss realised on the Second Transaction. We may also, in the event that the Contract is being extended, request an Additional Payment to be made. If any gain is realised, when closing out our position, due to the regulatory permissions that we have, we are not entitled to pay this to you.
    3. 13.3 In the event that we are required to extend the Contract, the details in the Pre-Contract Information and the Contract Note shall be deemed to have been amended to take into consideration the additional charges, the date the Sale Currency Monies are to be deposited in full into the relevant Client FX Account and the Value Date.
    4. 13.4 In the event that we are required to cancel the Contract, we shall:
      1. 13.4.1 notify you of any loss that we make or liability we incur as a result of the Close-Out and the cancellation/termination;

If, following a reasonable amount of time, no Contract is entered into, then the money shall be returned to you.
    3. 14.3 For the avoidance of doubt, money will no longer be Relevant Funds and therefore will not be safeguarded when they become:
      1. 14.3.1 due and owing to us, for example Sale Currency Monies pursuant to a Trade Contract; or

As part of our verifying your identity or that of a Third Party Depositor and/or a Beneficiary, we may carry out or ask a third party to carry out on our behalf, an electronic identity check to verify addresses and identities. This may leave a footprint on the relevant persons/entities credit history specifically identified as an AML check and not a credit check and will not affect the relevant person’s credit rating. You hereby confirm that the relevant persons have consented or will consent (when you provide us with their details) to us carrying out the electronic verification check whenever we want in the knowledge that it is standard practice for us to carry out an electronic verification at least once a year. You agree that prior to placing an order for a Third Party Depositor to send us money that you have obtained the consent from that Third Party Depositor for an electronic identity check being carried out on them.
