 19. Bonus Terms & Conditions

 

19.1) Bonus conditions stipulated as follows shall always prevail unless otherwise agreed upon in writing, or specified otherwise in the framework of an offer.

19.2) Please read the following Bonus Terms & Conditions carefully before accepting a special offer, trade refund, benefit, or bonus. OPTIONWEB.COM DOES NOT RECOMMEND TAKING OR ACCEPTING A BONUS UNLESS YOU KNOW HOW TO USE IT TO YOUR ADVANTAGE.

19.3) The Company offers bonuses to its registered customers ONLY. A bonus is an offer that is limited to a predefined period of time, and serves one time only; the terms and conditions associated with any benefit rewards are subject to change.

19.4) For the avoidance of doubt, bonuses are granted solely upon the request and formal approval of the client. Unless specified otherwise in the framework of a special offer, bonuses are under no circumstances mandatory.

19.5) OptionWeb reserves the right to refuse, cancel or change the bonus without any prior notice.

19.6) The maximum net cumulated bonus amount is 4000 EUR/USD/GBP (this condition is not applicable to Gold accounts and above).

19.7) The amount of one single bonus can reach a maximum of 100% of the total amount of real money present in the OptionWeb account at the time the bonus is granted, unless otherwise agreed upon in writing, or specified otherwise in the framework of an offer.

19.8) Bonuses can only be withdrawn after trading a volume 40 times the bonus value, unless specified otherwise in the framework of an offer. For example if a $50 bonus is received, a total trading turnover of $2000 must be achieved by the trader before the bonus can be withdrawn. (Positions that are sold or canceled before expiry are excluded and cannot be considered as a valid turnover).

19.9) A bonus can only be withdrawn in its entirety.

19.10) In the case of several bonuses granted in the framework of separate offers, bonuses can only be withdrawn in the order in which they were granted.

19.11) When a Client opens a position, priority shall be given to the real money present in the trading account. In case of loss, the invested amount is first deducted from the initial deposit amount; in case of further loss, the invested amount shall be deducted from the bonus amount.

19.12) In the case that, after all positions have reached expiry, the client’s account balance is strictly below 5 EUR/USD/GBP, all active bonuses shall be canceled.

19.13) The bonus will be paid in the base currency the Client selected upon registration only.

19.14) In the case that part of or the entire deposit amount based on which the bonus was given be withdrawn before the minimum required volume of 40 times the bonus amount has been achieved, the following measures shall be applicable:

  • All the active bonuses shall be cancelled;
  • All losses shall be deducted from the real money present in the Client’s trading account;
  • A 3% service charge shall be applied to the total remaining amount after the bonus has been deducted from the Client’s OptionWeb account balance.
  • A period of fifteen (15) business days will be necessary to examine the Client’s case.

20. Required supporting documents


According to the relevant laws of the Republic of Cyprus, all those registered on optionweb.com must provide the following documents prior to the opening of a trading account:

  • Valid ID/ Passport: National Identification / citizen card (front and back copies) / Passport / (UK ONLY: Driver’s license)
  • Proof of residence issued in the last 3 months (utility bill, telephone, internet, electricity, etc. - Name, postal address, date and logo/official stamp must be clearly visible on the document)
  • Photocopy of means of payment (credit card – front and back copies) hiding the middle eight digits, e.g. (1234-xxxx-xxxx-4321) and the cryptogram/CVV on the back.

Please note that additional proof of identity, depending on but not restricted to the Client's classification or other means of identity verification, might be required in order to fully comply with the relevant regulations, such as a notarized copy of a passport. Your account may be suspended until such proof has been provided.

You must provide true, complete and accurate information and provide the documents within the 24 hours following registration. In case of any changes, these must be submitted to OptionWeb immediately. The provision of false information shall be considered an offense and shall result in the immediate cessation of any activity and the suspension of your account.

In the absence of supporting documents, no withdrawal of funds can be made. Any request for withdrawal may only be processed back to the account belonging to the depositary.

An agent will contact you to fully activate your account.

BEAR IN MIND THAT UNLESS ALL REQUIRED SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS HAVE BEEN VERIFIED AND VALIDATED, CLIENTS WILL NOT HAVE THE POSSIBILITY TO MAKE ANY TRANSACTIONS AND/OR OPEN POSITIONS.

 

21. Outside Execution System

Non-authorized Automatic or semi-automatic trading mechanisms integrated by the Client in the browser or Client side that do not involve human execution shall be considered back door API or system abuse that may result in account suspension and/or position cancellation.

Positions that were taken in this manner, resulting in prices that wouldn’t have been accepted or filled in the general market, shall therefore be considered as off-market transactions, which shall result in the cancellation of such positions.
