2 About us 2.1 This website is operated by Kantox Limited (we, us, our or Kantox). Kantox is a private company within the financial services sector that offers a direct currency exchange and payment service for companies. We operate a currency exchange platform (“Service”) on this website. The Service is only available to users which have fully registered to use the Service (“Users”) in accordance with and subject to these Terms. 2.2 Our registered company number is 07657495 and our registered address is at 9 Devonshire Square, 3rd Floor, London EC2M 4YD, United Kingdom. 2.3 We are authorised with the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) under the Payment Service Regulations 2017 as a Payments Institution (FRN 580343) for the provision of payment services and with HMRC as a Money Service Business Registration No.12641987.
4 Access to the website 4.1 While certain parts of the website (such as the home page) are accessible to everyone, to use the services provided by us you will need to register for an Account and satisfy the requirements set out in clauses 5 and 6 of these Terms. You will also need to appoint and register: a) an individual who will have authority to: (i) access and use the Service on your behalf; and (ii) appoint and supervise sub-users to access and use the Service on your behalf (a "Supervisor"); and b) an individual (or, at your option, more than one individuals) who will act as your Authorised Person/s as set out in clause 27. This will require you to provide us with certain information about you, your Supervisor and your Authorised Person. You must make sure that all information that you give us, including any information provided in the course of registration, is accurate and up-to-date. If you do not provide us with the required information, we cannot provide our Service to you. 4.2 When you register: a) you must identify and register an individual as your Supervisor in accordance with the process in clause 6.1; b) you may identify and register an Authorised User as your Authorised Person in accordance with the process in clause 27; c) you will be asked to set up log-in details consisting of a username and password; and d) you will be given by email a unique, encrypted automatically-generated digital signature (“Signing Key”) for each authorised individual that is registered to use the Service on your behalf in accordance with these Terms. 4.3 Once you have registered your Supervisor, the Supervisor may set up one or more sub-users within your organisation to access and use the Service on your behalf (each an "Authorised User”). You must ensure that each Authorised User only accesses and uses the Service under the supervision and with the authority of the Supervisor at all times. If any Authorised User leaves your organisation or is otherwise no longer authorised to access and use the Service on your behalf, you must de-register the applicable Authorised User by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If the Supervisor leaves your organisation or otherwise ceases to act as your Supervisor under these Terms, and if you wish to maintain your registration to use the Service, you must promptly notify us of that individual's deregistration as Supervisor and provide us with the information required by clause 6.1 in order to register another authorised individual as your replacement Supervisor. 4.4 You must treat your log-in details and Signing Key (together, the "Account Details") as confidential and must take all reasonable steps to keep them safe (which includes not sharing them with anyone else or allowing anyone else to use them). We will provide you with a new Signing Key every 12 months (or more frequently in our discretion) and you must use the new Signing Key when prompted to do so. The Account Details are personal to you and cannot be assigned, transferred or used by any individual other than the Supervisor and Authorised Users. Some sub-users may be restricted from undertaking certain activities via the website, and you will ensure that each Authorised User only uses the Service in the manner and for the activities permitted for their level of authorisation. You will be responsible for all activities on the website that occur using your Account Details. You must let us know immediately by phone or email using the contact details given in clause 20 of any actual or threatened unauthorised use of your Account Details or other actual or potential security breach of which you become aware. 4.5 We cannot accept any registrations when accounts are registered or run through automated methods. 4.6 We reserve the right in our discretion to refuse registration or disable a log-in ID at any time if, in our opinion, you have failed to comply with any provision of these Terms, if any details you provide for the purposes of registering as a user prove to be false or incorrect, or if we think it is necessary to protect other Users and/or the security or the operation of the website.

21 The Service 21.1 We operate a currency exchange platform on this website. The Service is only available to users which have fully registered to use the Service (“Users”) in accordance with and subject to these Terms. The process by which Users can seek to exchange currency via the website (i.e. place a “Trade”) is set out below. All Trades must be made for commercial and non-investment purposes. Some parts of the Service may be offered as a Subscription Service, which requires a separate contract between you and Kantox. Subscription Services provide access to specific functionalities on our website and / or to expert services. 21.2 Currency exchange via the Service and subject to these Terms are those where a User that wishes to initiate a Trade through our Service will initiate a "Market Trade" as the default currency exchange mode. A "Market Trade" is the sale of currency through a Liquidity Provider. Terms applicable to Market Trades are set out in section 22. 21.3 A User wishing to initiate a Trade must post a Trade proposal via the website or in electronic form via the Software in the required form (“Order”). The details that must be included in the Order will include: a) the type of Trade intended, being a buy or sell of specific currency; b) the applicable currencies to be bought and sold; c) the preferred value date; d) details of the User Account, the corresponding bank or (where clause 15 applies) the applicable Third Party Beneficiary Account details including: a. the relevant Transaction Unique Identifier. Unless we specify otherwise, this will be: i. in respect of Eurozone payments, a valid IBAN and BIC/Swift; ii. in respect of payments in the UK, the sort code and account numbers; iii. in respect of payments in the US, the ABA and routing numbers; iv. where a corresponding bank is to be used in the payment transaction, the BIC/SWIFT. b. the account holder's exact and complete name as per the holder’s bank records; c. the account holder’s address details as per the records you hold; d. the currency or currencies the account holder is entitled to receive into the account; e. the bank’s name and address; and f. any reference that it wishes us to use for payments (instead of our default “B/O Client Name”; UTN”); and e) in the case of a payment to a Third Party Beneficiary, the details required by clause 28.2. 21.4 Once a Trade has been posted, then depending on whether the User and Trade fulfil the criteria set out in sections 22, the Service will generate a Market Trade. The processes for agreeing a Trade are set out in clauses
22. 21.5 Users can access to a summary of their activity using the Service via the website. 22 Market Trades 22.1 A User will only be entitled to place an order for a Market Trade if it registers to use the Service as set out in clause 4. 22.2 Under the Market Trade mode, a User is able to buy (or sell) currency through Kantox from (or to) one or more Liquidity Providers at the rate quoted by the Liquidity Partner(s) on its or their platform(s) and as offered to Kantox. 22.3 Except where clause 22.8 and 22.9 applies, the process for agreeing a Market Trade is as follows: a) The User must log in to the Service using its username and password and submit an Order via the website with the details required by clause 5.3. b) Once the Order for the Market Trade is submitted via the website, the User will be informed of the following details: g. the applicable exchange rate for the Market Trade; h. the counter-value of the amount requested to exchange; and i. our fee for that Market Trade, calculated in accordance with the fee and charges set out in Annex A. c) A User wishing to execute a Market Trade will have to introduce the Signing Key. d) Once a Market Trade is executed, we will send the User an email confirming the Market Trade and providing Completion Documents. 22.4 For each Market Trade: a) the submission of an Order for a Market Trade will be treated as an offer by the User to Kantox; b) Kantox, which acts as principal, hedges its own position by entering into a back-to-back trade as principal with the Liquidity Provider; and c) acceptance by the Liquidity Provider of the Order will be deemed to be an acceptance by Kantox of the Order. Kantox may, in its sole discretion, reject any Order for a Market Trade. 22.5 We may require that the User transfers a cash deposit into a designated account ("Margin Account") as security for the fulfilment of User’s obligations under a Market Trade (“Margin Deposit”) and/or to fulfil any other payment obligations of the User in relation to its use of the Service in accordance with our Margin Policy. If the Margin Deposit is not sufficient to cover a potential loss of a position, we shall be entitled to request an additional deposit ("Margin Call"). Such deposits must be made within two (2) Business Days of our request. If the User does not comply with this obligation, we may cancel the applicable Market Trade and the User will be liable for all losses we incur including the loss of any margin deposit that we have deposited with the Liquidity Provider in respect of the Market Trade. Upon transfer of the Margin Deposit, full ownership and title to the transferred sums will vest in KANTOX and such money will not be held in our Segregated Account. This means that the User will no longer have a proprietary interest over the Margin Deposit and KANTOX can deal with it in its own right. Any Margin Deposit that we receive from the User may be used in relation to the applicable Market Trade or a separate Trade that the User is party to. You will have the right to be repaid any Margin held by us in excess of any Losses suffered by Kantox. 22.6 We will use all reasonable efforts to ensure that the Service will accurately display the currency exchange rates supplied by the Liquidity Provider, but cannot guarantee an exact match between the rate applied by the Liquidity Provider and the rate on our website. If there is any discrepancy between the rates, the rate applied by the Liquidity Provider will prevail. Any such rates displayed are indicative only and neither KANTOX nor the Liquidity Provider can guarantee that any User will benefit from such rate on closing a Market Trade. 22.7 The User acknowledges that the rate quoted for Market Trades will be the Liquidity Provider Rate plus, at least, the Liquidity Provider Spread. 22.8 For security purposes, KANTOX may, on a discretionary basis, allocate a limit to the number and/or size of Market Trades that a User can place ("Trade Limit"). 22.9 If you are using the Software to submit an Order you authorise us to act on the instruction given or appearing to be given by you using the Software and received by us in electronic form. Each Order submitted via the Software forms a commitment which may only subsequently be amended or revoked by you with our prior consent (such consent will not be unreasonably withheld) at any time before that Order is executed. You will be responsible for the genuineness and accuracy, both as to content and form, of any instruction received by us. 22.10 If clause 22.8 applies to an Order for a Market Trade, we will decide in our sole discretion: a) whether the User is eligible to directly close the Market Trade; and b) the currency pairs, the amount and the maturity that a specific User is entitled to trade as a Market Trade. In making a decision under this clause 22.10, we will apply our internal risk policy taking into account the User's trading history as reflected in the User's data that we hold. 22.11 If the User breaches any of its obligations under these Terms, including where the User fails to fund any Margin Deposit and/or Margin Call as required under clause 22.5 or fails to pay the agreed amount of currencies to the Margin Account for a specific Trade, we may in our sole discretion reject any Order(s) submitted by that User. In any such case, the User will be liable for all Losses we incur as a result of such cancellation including any loss of any Margin Deposit(s) that we have deposited with the Liquidity Provider. 22.12 If we reject any Order(s) under clause 22.11, we will notify you of: a) the rejection; b) if possible, the reasons for such rejection; and c) where it is possible to provide reasons for the refusal and those reasons relate to factual matters, the procedure for rectifying those factual errors that led to the rejection. Any such notification will be given or made available to you at the earliest opportunity, and in any event: d) by the end of the Business Day following the time of receipt of the payment order, where the Trade is in Euro, executed wholly within the United Kingdom in Sterling, or involving only one currency conversion between the Euro and Sterling, provided that: a. the currency conversion is carried out in the United Kingdom; and in the case of crossborder payment transactions, the cross-border transfer takes place in Euro by the end of the fourth Business Day following the time of receipt of the Order where the payment does not fall within paragraph 6.12 (d) but is to be executed wholly within the EEA, each of these time periods being a "Relevant Credit Period".
23 Acceptance and Clearing 23.1 Following acceptance of a Market Trade using the Signing Key or the Software, the Service will generate a unique identifying number for each User to the Trade (“UTN”). The User should use its UTN in any reference to the Trade on the Service. The Service will also email the following documents to the User (“Completion Documents”): a) a confirmation of the details of the Trade including the UTN that the payments must carry as reference for payment; and b) instructions for the transfer of funds by the User to the Segregated Account, including the deadline for the transfer, the Segregated Account details and the UTN. 23.2 Any errors in the Completion Documents must be notified to us within 24 hours of acceptance at , otherwise all the details set out in the Completion Documents will be deemed to be correct. 23.3 The User must transfer the agreed amounts into the applicable Segregated Account in accordance with the Completion Documents. 23.4 On the Value Date, or on the next Business Day if Value Date is not a Business Day, applicable funds deposited in the Segregated Account by the User pursuant to the Completion Documents will be transferred out of the Segregated Account into the account of the Liquidity Provider to enable KANTOX to discharge its liabilities assumed in connection with the Market Trade. On receipt of the funds by the Liquidity Provider, we will execute the Trade by ordering the Liquidity Provider to transfer the agreed funds to the Segregated Account(s) for further transfer to the User's User Account or Third Party Beneficiary Account ("Clearing”). The date on which this occurs will be referred to as the “Value Date”. Clearing of Market Trades is conditional on: a) the receipt of the applicable funds to the Segregated Account by the User on or before the applicable Value Date and otherwise in accordance with the Completion Documents; b) the provision to us of correct User Account or Third Party Beneficiary Account details (as applicable) by the User; and c) where payment is to be made to a Third Party Beneficiary, the provision of all necessary information to our satisfaction in accordance with clause 28. 23.5 Where we execute a payment transaction in accordance with a User Account or Third Party Beneficiary Account details that the User has given to us that is incorrect or incomplete in respect of a payment to a User Account, the account of a corresponding bank or Third Party Beneficiary Account, we will not be liable for any Loss, consequential delay or failure on our part to complete a payment into that account (including where such payment is made on our behalf by a Liquidity Provider). 23.6 Where an incomplete or incorrect User Account or Third Party Beneficiary Account details have been given by the User in relation to a payment, we will be entitled to charge for our reasonable costs in assisting in any recovery of the relevant funds; or if you are a Non-Consumer, be entitled to charge a Rejected Payment Charge; and in either case, make reasonable efforts to assist the User to recover the relevant funds. 23.7 If you are a Non-Consumer and a payment is rejected or blocked by the recipient bank for any reason other than as a result of your provision of an incorrect or User Account or Third Party Beneficiary Account, then we will as soon as practicable, contact the relevant User to ask for correct and complete account details; and be entitled to charge the Rejected Payment Charge for the returned payment and (if applicable) the reissue of a new payment. 23.8 If a payment is rejected or blocked by the recipient bank for any reason other than as a result of your provision of an incorrect or incomplete User Account or Third Party Beneficiary Account, then we will: a) be liable for the correct execution of the Trade unless it can be proved to the User that the recipient bank received the amount of the payment transaction within the Relevant Credit Period; b) on request, make immediate efforts to trace the payment and notify the User of the outcome; and c) where we are liable, without undue delay refund the User the amount of the non-executed payment and, where applicable, restore the debited User Account to the state in which it would have been had the defective payment not taken place.
23.9 If a User delays in transferring the correct amount into a Segregated Account by the applicable date and time specified in the Completion Documents (with the effect that the correct amount is not available in the Segregated Account by that date), then without limiting any other rights we may have under these Terms Clearing will be delayed by the length of time of the User's delay; and the User will be charged a Roll Over Charge for each day of delay ("Roll Over Charge"). 23.10 If a User is expecting to receive several payments from the Segregated Accounts on the same date, we may instruct the bank holding the Segregated Accounts to release the payments in one lump payment or as one payment per Trade.
24 Liability for unauthorised or incorrectly executed Remittance Transactions 24.1 Users must let us know without undue delay by email to of any unauthorised or incorrectly executed Remittance Transactions. 24.2 A User shall only be entitled to redress under clause 24.4 if the User notifies us without undue delay on becoming aware that the Remittance Transaction was unauthorised or incorrectly executed and in any event no later than 13 months after the value date. For the purposes of this clause 24, “unauthorised” means a Remittance Transaction which has not been consented to by the User whether as a result of fraud or otherwise. 24.3 In respect of each Remittance Transaction, our obligation to complete the payment is owed to the User instructing us to make the payment. This means that in the case of the non-execution or defective execution of a Remittance Transaction, KANTOX will have no liability to the User intended to receive such funds and any liability will be to the User who is the payer of that particular Remittance Transaction. 24.4 Subject to the sub-clauses below and to clauses 24.2, 24.5 and 24.6, we will be liable to refund the User for any unauthorised Remittance Transactions or any incorrectly executed Remittance Transaction with the nominal amount of the Remittance Transaction in the same currency as payer User's payment order. Notwithstanding this obligation or any liability which cannot be excluded by law, KANTOX will not be liable to pay the User for any other Loss arising from unauthorised or incorrectly executed Remittance Transactions. 24.5 The User will be liable for unauthorised Remittance Transactions in the event the User has acted fraudulently, or intentionally or with negligence failed to keep its Account Details secure under clause 4.4 (provided that the relevant Remittance Transaction occurs prior to our receipt of any User notification under clause 4.4 of a security breach). 24.6 In respect of any non-execution or defective execution of any Remittance Transaction where: a) the User has provided an incorrect or incomplete Transaction Unique Identifier, the provisions of clause 23.7 will apply; b) the User has provided us with an incorrect UTN, we will not be liable for such non-execution or defective execution; and c) we have evidence that the recipient's User Account provider (or Third Party Beneficiary Account provider or corresponding bank) has received the Remittance Transaction, we will not be liable for such non-execution or defective execution.
25 Payments 25.1 Each party to a Trade assumes full liability for any shortfall in the amount deposited by that party into the Segregated Account and the applicable amount agreed in respect of the Trade ("Shortfall"). Accordingly: a) The User is responsible for paying any costs, fees, bank commissions or other third party charges related to the transfer of funds to the Segregated Account, and shall make all payments under the 'shared' mode (not 'beneficiaries pays all' mode) so that the amount deposited by the User in the Segregated Account equals the applicable amount specified in the Completion Documents and Clearing may be carried out in accordance with the agreed terms. b) All payments made by a User in respect of a Trade must take into consideration any tax deductions required by applicable law. If any deduction is carried out, the User will increase its payment to the other party so that the final amount to be received by the other party once the deduction has been made is equal to the amount the other party would have received if the deduction had not be made. c) The User will be fully liable in accordance with these Terms if the funds transferred to the Segregated Account are insufficient to proceed to Clearing. 25.2 If there is a Shortfall in respect of a Trade as described in clause 25.1, we may in our sole discretion decide whether or not to execute that Trade. If we decide in our discretion to proceed to execute the Trade despite the Shortfall: a) we will add the Shortfall to the Monthly Invoice of the applicable User and the User will be liable to pay us the Shortfall in accordance with the terms set out in clause 32; and b) we may also charge a Shortfall Charge to cover our funding and management costs, which will also be added to the Monthly Invoice and will be payable in accordance with the terms set out in clause 32. c) If we decide not to execute the Trade by the Settlement Date: d) we will contact the User ; and e) unless the User cancels the Trade in accordance with the terms of clause 36, we will put the applicable Trade on hold for a maximum of three (3) Business Days, in which case each day of delay will be treated as a day of delay under clause 23.9. If the Trade has not been completed within that three (3) Business Day period, we may cancel the Trade in which case the provisions of clause 36 will apply. 25.3 Any amount transferred to a User Account from a Segregated Account will be a net amount reduced by any specific third party cost or charge for transfer. 25.4 When a Remittance Transaction is: a) denominated in Euros, we will ensure the Remitted Transaction is credited to the other Trade party's User Account (or Third Party Beneficiary Account) by the end of the Business Day following the Value Date (or when the Remittance Transaction is a termination charge, the end of the Business Day following the date on which the Remittance Transaction is to be made); b) denominated in pounds sterling and the other Trade party's User Account (or Third Party Beneficiary Account) is located within the United Kingdom, we will ensure the Remitted Transaction is credited to the other Trade party’s User Account (or Third Party Beneficiary Account) by the end of the Business Day following the Value Date (or when the Remittance Transaction is a termination charge, the end of the Business Day following the date on which the Remittance Transaction is to be made); c) denominated in another currency but the other Trade party's User Account (or Third Party Beneficiary Account) is located within the EEA, we will ensure the Remitted Transaction is credited to the other Trade party's User Account (or Third Party Beneficiary Account) by the end of the fourth Business Day following the Value Date (or when the Remittance Transaction is a termination charge, the end of the fourth Business Day following the date on which the Remittance Transaction is to be made); d) denominated in another currency but the other Trade party's User Account (or Third Party Beneficiary Account) is located outside the EEA, we will ensure the Remitted Transaction is credited to the other Trade party's User Account (or Third Party Beneficiary Account) by the end of the fourth Business Day following the Value Date or when the Remittance Transaction is a termination charge, the end of the fourth Business Day following the date on which the Remittance Transaction is to be made. 25.5 Payments to be made by or to Users in respect of Trades are subject to payment compliance checks by or on behalf of Kantox and/or banks (including your sending or receiving bank) in order to comply with money laundering and other applicable laws (including but not limited to the Money Laundering Regulations 2017 (as amended from time to time). You acknowledge and agree that payments may be blocked, delayed or refused as a result of this compliance process, and that, in such cases, Kantox may be prohibited by applicable law from informing you of the reason for such action. Kantox will not be liable for any Loss suffered by a User as a result of or in connection with any such action.
26 Third Party Provider 26.1 You can instruct a Third Party Provider to access information or make Payments as long as it is open and transparent about its identity and acts in accordance with the relevant regulatory requirements (but unless we say otherwise, you must not give your security details to a third party). We will treat any instruction from a Third Party Provider as if it were from you. 26.2 We may refuse to allow a Third Party Provider to access the Kantox Service if we are concerned about unauthorised or fraudulent access by that Third Party Provider. Before we do this we will tell you and explain our reasons for doing so, unless it is not reasonably practicable, in which case we will tell you immediately afterwards. In either case, we will tell you in the way in which we consider most appropriate in the circumstances. We won’t tell you our reasons where doing so will undermine our reasonable security measures or otherwise be unlawful. We may make available to a Third Party Provider a specific means of accessing the Kantox Service. If we do, and it tries to access Kantox by a different way, we may refuse to allow that access. 26.3 If you think a payment may have been made incorrectly or is unauthorised, you must tell us as soon as possible even where you use a Third Party Provider

Any such request by a User must be made to us at the time that the User places a Post for the applicable Trade. User acknowledges that such Third Party Beneficiary payments carry a money laundering risk for Kantox and Kantox will be required to carry out due diligence on the Third Party Beneficiary. 28.2 In order to enable us to consider any such request, the User must provide us with all necessary information about that Third Party Beneficiary that we request, including: a) a copy of the purchase order or other contract or any similar document(s) that demonstrates the need for the payment to be made to the Third Party Beneficiary; b) the Third Party Beneficiary Account details and the relevant Transaction Unique Identifier (such details to be provided no later than two (2) Business Days before the Settlement Date of the applicable Trade); c) the full details and address of the Third Party Beneficiary and any documents we require to verify such information; and d) (where the Third Party Beneficiary is a subsidiary, information regarding the activity of the subsidiary and its shareholding structure. 28.3 We will consider requests to make payments to Third Party Beneficiaries at our sole discretion.

In such case: a) the User is not entitled to cancel the Trade as a result; b) we may put the Trade on hold for a maximum of three (3) Business Days in which case each day of delay will be treated as delay under clause 23.7; c) if the Trade has not been completed within that three (3) Business Day period, we may cancel the Trade in which case the provisions of clause 36 will apply; and d) we will not be liable to a User for any Loss incurred by the User as a result of our decision under this clause 28.4. 28.5 If we refuse to make a payment to a Third Party Beneficiary, we will not be liable for and the User will bear all costs related to the return to the User of the currencies purchased, including any conversion costs and/or shortfall in amounts resulting from us returning currencies purchased to the User Account in a currency which is not supported by that User Account. 28.6 If we approve the User’s request under clause 28.1, any errors in the Third Party Beneficiary Account details must be notified to us at least 24 hours before the Settlement Date, otherwise all the details will be deemed to be correct. 28.7 If a User wishes to change the Third Party Beneficiary or Third Party Beneficiary Account details after a Trade is confirmed by us under clause 22.3(d), the User must submit the requested change(s) by email to and confirm them by phone to us at the number set out at clause 20. The User must provide all details required by clause 28.2 in respect of any requested substitute or new Third Party Beneficiary. While we will use reasonable efforts to consider any such requested change, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so before completion of the applicable Trade, and we will not be liable for any Loss that you may suffer as a result of any payment made to the original Third Party Beneficiary named as at the date on which the Trade was confirmed

Any such request must be made by the Cancelling Party's Supervisor or other Authorised User; b) for a Market Trade: i. we will contact the Liquidity Provider to discuss the possibility and terms of an early termination of the Market Trade; ii. the Liquidity Provider's acceptance of the Cancelling Party proposed early termination will constitute Kantox's acceptance to the termination provided always that the Liquidity Provider agrees to terminate Kantox's own back-to-back trade with the Liquidity Provider on the same terms; iii. Kantox will then confirm to the Cancelling Party and the Liquidity Provider the terms of the termination of the Market Trade (including any Unwind Costs payable by the Cancelling Party under these Terms), and consequently the termination of Kantox's backto-back trade with the Liquidity Provider; and iv. the Cancelling Party will pay Kantox: (i) the applicable Unwind Costs; and (ii) our Administration Charge; c) the Cancelling Party will pay the applicable Unwind Costs within the agreed timeframe. Following confirmation of payment of the Unwind Costs, we will notify the parties that the Trade is cancelled and the parties will be released from their obligations under the Trade; an d) Unwind Costs must be paid into Kantox's Segregated Account. The Cancelling Party consents to this Remittance Transaction by digitally signing the early termination notice and depositing the Unwind Costs in the Segregated Account. 36.2 The Cancelling Party will be fully and solely responsible to Kantox for any Loss suffered by another party as a result of early termination, including any costs related to the other party to the Trade having to place another Trade via the Service. Kantox may be entitled to make a claim against the Cancelling Party regardless of the payment of the Unwind Costs. 36.3 In addition to the payment of the Unwind Costs, the Cancelling Party will pay the Administration Charge to Kantox for handling the early termination. The Administration Charge will become due and payable with the next Monthly Invoice. If more than one Trade is being cancelled, one Administration Charge will be payable for each Trade that is terminated. 36.4 If the cancellation of a Trade requested by a Cancelling Party leaves Kantox in a better financial position than the one it would have been in if the Trade had not been cancelled, the Cancelling Party will not be entitled to receive any breakage gain from Kantox.
37 Default and delay 37.1 If either User fails to make a payment in respect of a Market Trade (in either case, the “Defaulting Party”), with the effect that the Trade cannot be executed on the agreed Value Date, we will notify the Defaulting Party that the applicable payment is overdue. 37.2 If the Defaulting Party does not make the required payment within the deadline notified by us, the Trade will be terminated automatically and the Defaulting Party will be liable: a) to pay Kantox an amount corresponding to the difference between: (x) the agreed amount of currency ("Currency X") that Kantox would have received if the Trade had been executed; and (y) the amount of Currency X that the Kantox can obtain by selling spot on the foreign exchange market the amount of other currency that the non-defaulting party was supposed to transfer to the Defaulting Party under the Trade.

Save to the extent we are prohibited from doing so by law or such disclosure would compromise reasonable security measures, we shall notify you in advance of the suspension or cancellation of your registration. Where this is not reasonably possible, we shall endeavour to do so immediately after the cancellation or suspension. If the suspension or cancellation of your registration is in connection with (b) of this clause, we will provide the User with new log-in details and a new Signing Key as soon as practicable and the User may request the same by email or by phone. 38.3 If your Account to use the Service has been inactive for 12 months, we may terminate your Service Account by giving at least two (2) months' notice. 38.4 If we cancel a User’s registration, we may cancel any of their Market Trades at any time prior to their execution.
