- RISKS DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY
4.1. General Risk Statement
You understand that You are using our Services at your own risk. It for this reason that We condition the use of our services to those who can actually bear the loss of any money invested and who properly understand the associated risks that are inherent to trading contracts for differences in relation to Cryptocurrencies. It is also important to have relevant experience when entering financial contracts and transactions. As You know, Cryptocurrencies market is a dynamic arena and their respective prices are often highly unpredictable and volatile. You should not deal in these products unless you understand their nature and the extent of your exposure to risk. You should also be satisfied that the product is suitable for you in light of your circumstances and financial position. In addition, use of our Services can never be considered a safe investment rather only an investment with a high risk of loss inherently associated with it.
4.2. Accountability for Each Financial Transaction
By using our Services, You agree to be fully, independently and personally liable for each transaction and/or credit card transaction made on our System through your account, including without limitation, any position automatically opened as a result of our Copying Services. As such, You must make sure that You are the only person with access to your account at all times. You must make sure that no minors have access to your account. If You do not settle a transaction performed through your account You shall be liable to Us and must indemnify Us in the amount necessary to cover the entire cost, whether indirect or direct, of the transaction. In the unlikely event that a contract is entered to acquire or sell currency at a price that does not reflect the market price (such as an event where a technical error such as a bug or defect has caused a malfunction that has affected the price of the transaction), We reserve our right to terminate and cancel any such transaction. We will notify You of our decision to cancel the transaction and explain our reasons to You. On the other hand, You are required to inform Us of any such malfunction should You experience such a malfunction whilst trading on our system.
4.3. Restrictions on Financial Transactions
You understand that financial regulations, financial codes, financial ethics and contractual requirements vary worldwide. As such, You understand that ultimately it is your responsibility to make sure that You comply with any and all local regulations, directives, restrictions and laws in your local place of residence before using our Services. We strictly state that We do not permit the use of our Services by users from jurisdiction in which the use of our Services is not permitted. These Terms and Conditions are not offering or soliciting the use of our Services to any one located in a jurisdiction in which the specific use is not authorized or otherwise permitted by local laws. By using our Services, You declare that all the funds that You use and invest on our Services do not originate in any way from drug trafficking, abduction, terrorist activity or any other criminal activity that is unlawful or could be considered unlawful by any authority. In the event that We become suspicious that You may be engaging in or have engaged in fraudulent, unlawful or improper activity, including, without limitation, money laundering activities, or conduct otherwise in violation of these Terms and Conditions, your access to the Services may be terminated immediately and/or your account blocked. If your account is terminated or blocked in such circumstances, COPYME is under no obligation to refund any funds that may be in your account, unless otherwise instructed by a relevant regulatory authority. In addition to terminating your access to the Service and/or blocking your account, We reserve the right to prevent You from accessing any of our other websites or servers, or accessing any other services offered by Us. We shall be entitled to inform the relevant authorities, other online service providers and banks, credit card companies, electronic payment providers or other financial institutions of your identity and of any suspected unlawful, fraudulent or improper activity and You will cooperate fully with Us to investigate any such activity.
4.4. Additional Risk Disclosures
It is important that You be fully aware of the following points:
4.4.1. If You are trading over alternative trading platform over a third party trading accounts, such trading activities shall be subject to the commissions and fees available to our clients over such platforms and to the terms and conditions applicable to such trading accounts in addition to any and all the terms set forth in these Terms and Conditions. COPYME and its affiliates shall not be liable for any damage and/or loss resulting from and does not guarantee the execution of any order, the placing of stops, regardless of the entry or closing designation and/or that the trade will be filled at the order price and/or that the trading via such third party trading platform shall be error free, without delays.
4.4.2. We reserve the right to block any user from being copied, for whatsoever reason.
4.4.3. COPYME reserves the right to close part, or all, of customers’ open positions, in order to facilitate the charge of any fees or amounts due by You. Notwithstanding, You shall be liable for promptly paying such fee(s) and/or amounts to COPYME.
4.4.4. You acknowledge that the trading of certain Instruments on the trading platform may become volatile very quickly and without warning. Due to the high degree of risk involved in trading volatile Instruments, you acknowledge and agree that we reserve the right to close all or any open Transactions with respect to any Instruments that we determine, acting reasonably, are volatile, at the price quoted on the Trading Platform at such time without notice.
4.4.5. COPYME does not guarantee any order. Placing stops, regardless of the entry or closing designation, does not guarantee that the trade will be filled at the order price. All entry Stops and Stops will be filled, upon activation, at the available market price available to us that may or may not match the requested order price.
4.4.6. In the event liquidity providers are unable to provide liquidity to Us your order may experience delays in execution or You may not be able to place orders entirely. The size of the order may also impede the speed at which the order is executed. Keep in mind that it is only necessary to enter any order once. Multiple entries for the same order may inadvertently open unwanted positions.
4.4.7. While trading on our website and/or applications, You might encounter system errors that are resulted from hardware and/or software failures. The result of any system failure may be that your order is either not executed according to your instructions, executing with account balance errors and discrepancies or not executed at all. COPYME will not be liable for the resulting errors in account balances. COPYME reserves the right to make the necessary corrections or adjustments on the account involved.
4.4.8. High leverage allows trading in CFDs with relatively modest Margins or guarantees in relation to the scope of the contract. The result of this is that even a slight fluctuation of the underlying market or instruments could mean substantial gains when these fluctuations are in your favor, but could also mean considerable losses if the fluctuations are to your detriment. No system exists that could assure you that your CFDs will bring you great benefits, nor is it possible to guarantee, that your transactions will yield favorable results.
4.4.9. Even though the Cryptocurrencies markets may be liquid as compared with other financial instruments or markets, the market conditions might at times render the execution of an order or of a limit on an order (for example by placing a stop) at a stipulated price impossible. Accordingly, even though the extent of the losses could be subject to an agreed limit, the risk of incurring losses could be higher, and that loss could occur in a relatively short period of time.
4.4.10. In the event of the price of one of your transactions moving against you, in addition to the requirement to deposit additional guarantees or Margin as may be required by COPYME, COPYME reserves the right to close the outstanding balances without your consent.
4.4.11. Under abnormal market conditions, the price of underlying market or instruments may fluctuate rapidly to reflect unforeseeable events that cannot be controlled either by us or by you.
4.4.12. It is important to make a distinction between indicative prices which are displayed on charts and dealable prices which are displayed on our trading platform. Indicative quotes only give an indication of where the market is. Because the derivatives products and Cryptocurrencies market are decentralized, meaning it lacks a single central exchange where all transactions are conducted, each market maker may quote slightly different prices. Therefore, any prices displayed on any chart made available by us or by a third party will only reflect “indicative” prices and not necessarily actual “dealing” prices where trades can be executed.
4.4.13. All statements with respect to real money accounts will be open during the weekend and all experts are welcome to view their trading account info. COPYME reserves the right not to offset contracts carried over the weekend shortly after markets are open. COPYME will allow offsetting contracts carried over the weekend when market liquidity conditions are reasonable.
4.4.14. The risk information presented here does not reflect all of the risks as well as other important aspects intrinsic to your transactions (CFDs and/or in the underlying asset) with respect to Cryptocurrencies. Therefore, before starting to trade, You should learn the specifics of trading on such transactions in detail or seek further advice.
4.4.15. There are a series of inherent risks with the use of the mobile trading technology such as the duplication of order instructions, latency in the prices provided, and other issues that are a result of mobile connectivity. Prices displayed on the mobile platform are solely an indication of the executable rates and may not reflect the actual executed price of the order. Our mobile feature utilizes public communication network circuits for the transmission of messages. We shall not be liable for any and all circumstances in which You experience a delay in price quotation or an inability to trade caused by network circuit transmission problems or any other problems outside our direct control, which include but are not limited to the strength of the mobile signal, cellular latency, or any other issues that may arise between You and any internet service provider, phone service provider, or any other service provider. Please further note that some of the features available on the trading platform or our Social Trading Features may not be available on our mobile feature.
4.5. Risks Associated with Social Trading
Social Trading Features are associated with various risks and You are urged to carefully read and consider the following risks before utilizing our Social Trading Features:
4.5.1. Automated trading execution whereby trades are opened and closed in your account without your manual intervention.
4.5.2. In making a decision to Copy a specific expert, account, portfolio and/or strategy, You have considered your entire financial situation including financial commitments and you understand that using Social Trading Features is highly speculative and that you could sustain significant losses exceeding the amount used to copy a expert or experts.
4.5.3. Social Trading Features are provided by Us solely for informational purposes. We and our affiliates and their employees and agents are not investment or financial advisers. IF YOU MAKE INVESTMENT DECISIONS IN RELIANCE ON INFORMATION WHICH IS AVAILABLE ON OUR WEBSITES OR AS A RESULT OF THE USE OF THE SOCIAL TRADING FEATURES, YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK AND COPYME INC. AND ITS AFFILIATES, THEIR EMPLOYEES AND ITS AGENTS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSSES THAT YOU MAY SUSTAIN.
4.5.4. YOU SHOULD NOT MAKE ANY INVESTMENT DECISION WITHOUT FIRST CONDUCTING YOUR OWN RESEARCH. YOU ARE SOLELY AND EXCLUSIVELY RESPONSIBLE FOR DETERMINING WHETHER ANY INVESTMENT, OR STRATEGY, OR ANY OTHER PRODUCT OR SERVICE IS APPROPRIATE OR SUITABLE FOR YOU BASED ON YOUR INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES AND PERSONAL AND FINANCIAL SITUATION.
4.5.5. A copied expert’s, account’s, portfolio’s and/or strategy’s positions (with respect to any of our financial instruments) shall be copied in an amount equal to the lower of either the minimum position amount as shall be set by COPYME from time to time or the proportional amounts of the copied trade to the realized equity of the copied expert as the basis for the proportions of copied trades. Such positions shall have the same leverage, stop loss and take profit, to the maximum extent possible. Trades below the minimum trade amount shall not be opened. All such positions shall be modified and/or closed automatically if and when modified/closed by the copied expert, for whatsoever reason, without providing any further notice and without any action on your part. You should be able and prepared to bear the loss of the entire investment You made in such a copied expert. You are fully responsible for any losses You may sustain as a result of our automatic execution of instructions generated as a result of the utilizing of any of the Social Trading Features.
4.5.6. If You place additional trades in your account or You modify or cancel an order generated by a Social Trading Feature You may achieve a materially different result than the user that You copied. Unopened copied trades in amounts lower than the minimum trade may also result in different results. Cash-out and withdrawal by the copied expert may also generate a materially different result than the user that You copied as it may affect the copying proportions.
4.5.7. Any past performance of our users, risk score, statistics and any other information with respect to users appearing on our websites and applications are not indicative of future results and should be considered as hypothetical as more fully described below. It is important to understand that risk scores, statistical information and historical performance are not a guarantee of future performance. NO REPRESENTATION OR GUARANTEE IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN AND/OR THAT A RISK SCORE OF A COPIED USER SHALL NOT IN FACT BE HIGHER. When reviewing the Content, portfolio, financial performance information, opinions or advice of another registered user, You should not assume that the user is unbiased, independent or qualified to provide financial information or opinions. COPYME does not guarantee any order including the placing of stop orders such as Copy Stop Loss. Accordingly, regardless of the entry or closing designation, COPYME does not guarantee that the trade will be filled at the order price/stop loss percentage and you may lose more than the original amount used to copy such expert.
4.5.8. PAST PERFORMANCE AND/OR RISK SCORES SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AS HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS. HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS. NO REPRESENTATION OR GUARANTEE IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THE PAST PERFORMANCE OR RISK SCORE SHOWN. THE ACTUAL PERCENTAGE GAINS/LOSSES EXPERIENCED BY INVESTORS WILL VARY DEPENDING ON MANY FACTORS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO: STARTING ACCOUNT BALANCES (DEPOSITS AND WITHDRAWALS), MARKET BEHAVIOR, MINIMUM TRADE SIZE, THE INVESTOR’S ACCOUNT SETTINGS AND THE ACTUAL PERFORMANCE OF THE COPIED USER.
4.5.9. ACCORDINGLY, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL/PAST PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM. ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.
4.5.10. NO ASPECT OF THE INFORMATION AND/OR SOCIAL TRADING FEATURE PROVIDED AND/OR MADE AVAILABLE ON OUR WEBSITES IS INTENDED TO PROVIDE, OR SHOULD BE CONSTRUED AS PROVIDING, ANY INVESTMENT, TAX OR OTHER FINANCIAL RELATED ADVICE OF ANY KIND. YOU SHOULD NOT CONSIDER ANY SUCH CONTENT AND/OR ANY SUCH FEATURE TO BE A SUBSTITUTE FOR PROFESSIONAL FINANCIAL AND/OR INVESTMENT ADVICE. IF YOU CHOOSE TO ENGAGE IN TRANSACTIONS BASED ON CONTENT ON THE WEBSITE AND/OR ELECT TO COPY SPECIFIC EXPERTS AND/OR TRADES, THEN SUCH DECISIONS AND TRANSACTIONS AND ANY CONSEQUENCES FLOWING THEREFROM ARE YOUR SOLE RESPONSIBILITY. WHILE INDIVIDUAL PARTICIPANTS MAY OFFER INVESTMENT ADVICE OR OPINIONS AND/OR EFFECT A TRANSACTION WHICH MAY BE SUBSEQUENTLY COPIED BY OTHER EXPERTS, SUCH ADVICE, OPINIONS OR TRADES AMOUNT TO NOTHING MORE THAN EXCHANGES BETWEEN PERSONS WHO MAY BE ANONYMOUS OR UNIDENTIFIABLE OR SIMPLY THE EXECUTION OF A TRADE BY SUCH EXPERTS. COPYME INC. AND ITS AFFILIATES DO NOT PROVIDE INVESTMENT ADVICE DIRECTLY, INDIRECTLY, IMPLICITLY, OR IN ANY MANNER WHATSOEVER BY MAKING SUCH INFORMATION AND/OR FEATURES AVAILABLE TO YOU. YOU SHOULD USE ANY INFORMATION GATHERED FROM HERE AND/OR UTILIZE THE SOCIAL TRADING FEATURES ONLY AS A STARTING POINT FOR YOUR OWN INDEPENDENT RESEARCH AND INVESTMENT DECISION MAKING.
4.6. Additional Risks and Disclosures Associated with Trading Cryptocurrencies
In addition to and without derogating from the general risk disclosure set forth in Section 4.1, We condition the ability trade in contracts for differences for Cryptocurrencies to those who can actually bear the loss of any money invested and who properly understand the associated risks that are inherent to such financial instruments. This notice cannot disclose all of the risks and other significant aspects of contracts for differences with respect to Cryptocurrencies. In that respect we note as follows:
4.6.2. YOU HEREBY FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE CRYPTOCURRENCIES MARKET IS DECENTRALIZED,
NON-REGULATED AND DETERMINED BY DEMAND AND SUPPLY ONLY. THE VALUE OF THE CRYPTOCURRENCIES IS EXTREMELY VOLATILE AND THE PRICE OF CRYPTOCURRENCIES CAN UNPREDICTABLY INCREASE OR DECREASE OVER A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. ACCORDINGLY, CRYPTOCURRENCIES SHOULD BE SEEN LIKE AS AN EXTREMELY HIGH RISK ASSET AND YOU SHOULD NEVER INVEST FUNDS THAT YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO LOSE IN A CRYPTOCURRENCIES (CFDS OR THE UNDERLYING ASSET). BEFORE EXECUTING A CRYPTOCURRENCIES (CFDS OR THE UNDERLYING ASSET) ORDER PLEASE TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THAT: (I) WE RELY ON OUR UNREGULATED LIQUIDITY PROVIDERS FOR CRYPTOCURRENCIES LIQUIDITY (II) COPYME CURRENTLY ALLOWS TRADING IN CRYPTOCURRENCIES OVER THE WEEKEND AND IT RESERVES THE RIGHT NOT TO DO SO. SHOULD COPYME SO ELECTS, TRADING IN CRYPTOCURRENCIES SHALL BE ALLOWED ONLY FROM MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY. GIVEN THAT THE CRYPTOCURRENCIES EXCHANGES MAY OPERATE OVER WEEKENDS, THERE MAY BE A SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FRIDAY’S CLOSE AND SUNDAY’S OPEN. ALL SUCH FACTORS MAY RESULT IN YOU EITHER NOT COMPLETING AN ORDER ON A SPECIFIC TRADING DAY OR COMPLETING AN ORDER ON A SUBSTANTIALLY LESS FAVORABLE PRICE.
4.6.3. For more information about risks associated with orders for Cryptocurrencies and the bid/ask prices for such orders see Sections 1.11. and 1.18 above.
4.6.4. In CFD transactions, We act as a counterparty in such transactions conducted on the trading platform and, therefore, act as the buyer when you offer to sell an Instrument and the seller when you offer to buy such instrument.
4.6.5. In CFD transactions, when effecting such transactions, COPYME may or may not acquire the underlying security, Cryptocurrencies or derivative with respect to such underlying security for its own account to cover said transactions. Should COPYME elect to acquire such security, Cryptocurrencies or derivative for its own account, it may or may not exercise or refrain from exercising its rights as a security holder (directly or through one or more intermediaries) without notifying You and without taking Your interests into account.
4.6.6. Dividends, Takeovers and Transformations (including events such as share consolidations/splits, mergers, takeovers, spinoffs, MBO’s, de-listings, etc.). Depending on the circumstances of each event, We will make our best efforts to adjust your Account in respect of a dividend, takeovers and Transformations (including events such as share consolidations/splits, acquisitions, mergers, takeovers, spinoffs, MBO’s, de-listings, etc.) attributable to any specific security, which adjustment shall be calculated by us, net of any taxes which may apply with respect thereto. In doing so we will make our an effort to effect such adjustment on the basis of good faith and fairness and, where appropriate, by taking such action as is consistent with market practice and/or taking into account the treatment we may receive from our counterparties or any relevant third party. However, we reserve the rights to close out any open positions at the market price immediately prior to the event taking place. As a result of such event, if the security and/or Cryptocurrency underlying any Instrument becomes subject to an adjustment as the result of a takeover or transformation action, we may determine in our sole discretion (but are not obligated to) the appropriate adjustment to be made to the price or contract quantity as we consider appropriate to account for said event. Such adjustment shall represent the economic equivalent of the rights and obligations of us and you immediately prior to the action.
4.6.7. Delisting and/or non-supported Cryptocurrencies. If at any time any of the Cryptocurrencies that forms the subject of your order is delisted and/or we no longer support the trading in such Cryptocurrencies for any reason, then the applicable order will be immediately closed. If COPYME is notified that a Cryptocurrency you hold in your Account is likely to be delisted and/or removed and/or canceled from any of the exchanges (some of them or all) and COPYME believes that it shall not be able to trade in such Cryptocurrencies, COPYME shall make an effort to sell the Cryptocurrencies on your behalf at such time and price, and in such manner, as it determines.
4.6.8. Operation of Cryptocurrency Protocols and Transformations. COPYME does not own or control the underlying software protocols which govern the operation of Cryptocurrencies available for trading in our platform. In general, the underlying protocols are open source and anyone can use, copy, modify, and distribute them. By using COPYME’s Services, you acknowledge and agree (i) that COPYME is not responsible for operation of the underlying protocols and that COPYME makes no guarantee of their functionality, security, or availability; and (ii) that the underlying protocols are subject to sudden changes in operating rules (“Forks”) and/or other events and/or transformations, and that such forks, transformations and/or other events may materially affect the value, function, and/or even the name of the Cryptocurrency COPYME holds for your benefit. In such an event, you agree that COPYME may temporarily suspend COPYME operations (with or without advance notice to you) and that COPYME may, in its sole discretion, (a) configure or reconfigure its systems or (b) decide not to support (or cease supporting) the forked protocol entirely and/or the Cryptocurrency resulting from such event. According to our sole discretion we may decide (but for avoidance of any doubt we are not obligated to do so) to adjust your account in respect of a Fork/event depending on the circumstances of each event attributable to any specific Cryptocurrency held by You. Such adjustment shall be calculated by us, net of any taxes which may apply with respect thereto. In doing so we will make an effort to effect such adjustment on the basis of good faith and fairness and, where appropriate, by taking such action as is consistent with market practice and/or taking into account the treatment we may receive from our counterparties or any relevant third party. You acknowledge and agree that COPYME assumes absolutely no responsibility whatsoever in respect of an unsupported branch of a forked protocol and/or the Cryptocurrency resulting from such event.
4.6.9. Insolvency. If an issuer of a security goes into insolvency or is otherwise dissolved, we shall close any such of your open transactions in the relevant CFD and/or in the underlying asset. The closing date shall be the date of insolvency.
