Users accessing this site are required to inform themselves about the jurisdiction restrictions applicable to them, and hereby declare that the funds used for trading do not originate from any criminal activity or otherwise breach any law. Customers are provided with a limited license by CCFM upon account opening, which must only be used by the license holder. Licenses are non-transferable and available only to those over the age of 18, or older should the customer ís jurisdiction demand a higher minimum age for financial trading activities. The customer's license must not be used at any time by any other person for any reason whatsoever. Accounts may be temporarily suspended or permanently closed where customers are found to have breached the terms of their license. A CCFM customer account will be opened immediately by the company upon receipt of the customer's relevant KYC (Know Your Client) personal information, and the Customer's express consent to agree to each and every term and condition laid out by the company. Should any of the customer's personal information change at any time, it must be reported to the CCFM customer service team immediately. Effective Customer Due Diligence ("CDD") / 'Know Your Customer' ("KYC") measures are essential to the management of money laundering and terrorist financing risk. CCFM uses such methods to identify each client's identity on the basis of documents, data or information obtained from a reliable and independent source both at the moment of starting a business relationship and on an ongoing basis. Identity is composed of attributes such as names used, date of birth and the residential address of the customer. This information can uniquely identify a natural or legal person. For a natural person, the date of birth should be obtained as an important identifier to support the name. If the customer provides an international passport as evidence of identity, the number, date, and country of an issue should be recorded (preferably the scan should be maintained on files as well). The identity must be verified any time a business relationship with CCFM will be established, an account opened, or a significant one-off transaction is made.
The following documents can be used to attest the identification information:
- Personal Identity Documents: front and back color copy of a valid Government issued Photo I.D, (i.e. Identification Card/Driver License/Passport), where we can see Name, Picture, Date of Birth, Expiry Date, Signature and all 4 corners of the document.
- Current International Passport.
- Residence Permit issued by the Immigration Authorities.
- Current Driving License.
- Inland Revenue Tax Clearance Certificate.
- Birth Certificate/Sworn Declaration of Age.
- Record of Home Visit.
- Confirmation from the electoral register that a person of that name lives at that address.
- Proof of Residence - Recent utility bill (water, electricity, gas, and internet) issued in the past three (3) months- note: it is better to use a physical electricity/municipality bill like a utility bill, not a mobile telephone bill. No paychecks, store bills or insurances will be accepted.
- Bank Reference Letter.
- Partially covered copy (front and back) of the Credit/Debit card used to make the deposit. Only the name, bank issuer, expiration date, and last four numbers of your card need to be visible on the front, while a clear signature needs to be visible on the backside (All other details can be covered).
- Declaration of Deposit (DOD).
Accounts with CCFM become active following the transfer of funds from the customer into the customer's newly opened trading account. The account will only be activated for use when the agreed minimum initial deposit of $300 (Three Hundred USD) is transferred. Should it be determined that any applicable terms or conditions have been breached after an account has been activated, all funds and trading activities may be frozen pending investigation. The transfer of funds both into and out of the customer's account must be done in strict accordance with CCFM' terms and conditions.
All CCFM customers expressly guarantee that their membership, and any trading activity taken, are in complete compliance with every applicable law and legislative requirement in accordance with their jurisdiction. Customers are prohibited to open more than ONE account with CCFM.

Indicative quotes are displayed in accordance with information available at the time from various financial information systems on a global basis. Quotes are determined by way of mathematical calculations carried out in accordance with the current information. As both the information provided and the mathematical calculations used vary from one trading platform to the next, the customer accepts that different price quotes may be displayed by different trading platforms/brokers. CCFM makes no guarantee that any of the available trading tools or the primary trading platform itself will be available at all times without any error or interruption.

This may include, but is not limited to: changes or limitations with regard to maximum order sizes and order amounts, prices at which the customer is able to submit orders, changes or restrictions with regard to any or all Electronic Services provided by CCFM and any other controls all parameters we choose to impose. The company will inform the customer immediately upon the decision to enforce any such restrictions or parameters. Any actions or non-actions that are determined to be the result of platform malfunction, manipulation or exploitation of any kind will be blocked if not already active and frozen if in progress. Unless express permission is provided by CCFM, customers are forbidden from using any kind of automated trading software used to automatically place orders on their behalf. Any profits generated as a result of the use of automated trading software may be withheld by the company and all CCFM customers provide their full consent to this contractual term. However, software that does not actually place trades automatically but instead generates suggestions and notifications when and where successful trades could be entered into is permitted by CCFM, as it is still the client that manually places the order. In any instance where a trade has been entered into at the time of a system malfunction, error or unforeseen eventuality of any kind, the company reserves the right to immediately cancel it. This also applies to any trade entered into where it is determined that the customer has breached any applicable terms and conditions. CCFM allows clients to watch over all active trades by accessing their Trading Account online. However, the company does not guarantee that account access will be available at all times and accepts no liability whatsoever for any loss or damage that may occur as a result of customers not being able to access their accounts.
Customers are permitted to transfer funds into their accounts using a variety of currencies and payment methods, in accordance with those specified as acceptable by the company at the time. As the trading platform operates using US Dollars and/or Euro and/or GBP, other currencies in the customer's account(s) will be converted into the relevant trading currency, in accordance with exchange rates determined and published by CCFM at the time of the transaction. Customers transferring funds into their accounts fully accept all exchange rates offered by CCFM at the time of the transaction. In order to transfer funds by way of bank transfer, CCFM must be provided with the relevant bank account details including full SWIFT confirmation. In addition, it is the responsibility of the account holder to provide proof that the account in question is registered to them and them alone. In any instance where any required information is not provided or deemed unacceptable by the company, the transaction will be immediately denied or reversed. Upon transference of funds from the customer to the company, the funds immediately become the property of CCFM and will be used appropriately as a means of which to cover the orders, activities, and actions in general of the customer. Account funds can and will be returned to the customer upon request, in accordance with all applicable terms and conditions. The company is only obliged to return funds to the customer when it is satisfied that all applicable terms and conditions have been met. All payable fees and commissions owed by the client to CCFM will be automatically debited from the funds available in their account or charged once a week every Monday. No benefits or interest of any kind are payable on customer account balances. Withdrawals must always be requested to the same source of funds from which they were originally transmitted into the account of the customer. All withdrawals will also be paid out in the same currency as was used at the time the initial deposit was made. However, the company reserves the right at its own discretion to transfer withdrawals to different accounts or cards, should the customer in question have several available payment methods. All customers upon opening accounts with CCFM declare that the funds transferred into their accounts and use for trading activities are 100% legally obtained funds and were not obtained by any kind of criminal activity. CCFM works in accordance with strict Anti-Money Laundering policies. CCFM will not be held responsible for the consequences in the result of any transactions in either direction being delayed, disrupted or canceled for any given reason. All transactions are requested and entered into entirely at the customer's own risk.

Upon receiving a withdrawal request from a customer, the financial department at CCFM oversees, manages and verifies the safety and authenticity of each and every withdrawal request. In order for a withdrawal to be processed and actioned, the client must first provide the relevant identification documents as requested, and there must be a voice authorization between the customer and CCFM' broker. Failure to provide such voice authorization between the customer and the broker will cancel the withdrawal request. If all prior conditions are met:
(a) The company will make every effort to ensure that the withdrawal is processed between 5 to 10 business days from the moment the request and voice authorization by CCFM broker are received. However, we do not guarantee that any transaction will be completed successfully within this time period.

All such bonuses and rewards will be available for a limited time only and may be withdrawn at any time at the company discretion. In any instance that the company believes any applicable terms and conditions have been breached, bonus funds may be frozen or removed from the customer account. This also applies to any instances of suspected fraud.

Upon accepting any special offer, incentives or bonuses made available by CCFM, the customer immediately consents to each and every applicable term and condition laid out ñ including those that may be specific to this particular bonus.

Upon opening an account with CCFM, the client confirms that they have sufficient experience, knowledge, and expertise in Forex, CFD and Crypto trading to evaluate the potential rewards and high risks of their transactions and trades. Clients also acknowledge the fact that CCFM accepts no liability whatsoever for any consequences resulting from the use of any services or content provided by the company. Where any information or market commentary is provided by CCFM, customers accept that the information provided is in no way legally binding and does not represent a recommendation or endorsement of anything. It is entirely incidental to the relationship between the company and the client and is offered only as a supplementary resource for customers to use when making their trading decisions. Should negative consequences arise following the direct or indirect use of any of the information or market commentary the company offers, CCFM accepts no liability whatsoever.

Those without the required knowledge and experience are recommended not to begin trading without further study. Customers bear sole responsibility for meeting all relevant tax requirements in accordance with their jurisdiction. CCFM will not offer any advice on taxation or related matters than therefore accepts no liability for the consequences of any customers failing to meet their tax obligations. CCFM works as a mediator and has no bearing on the financial situation of the customer, or their taxation situation.

When an account is terminated, any funds that are owed either to the customer by the company or vice versa will be due for payment immediately. Account termination does not affect the statutory rights of the customer, who may with the exception of accounts terminated due to contractual breaches once again open a new account in the future.
Limitations of Liability and Indemnities
Every service, product and all information provided by CCFM is offered on an "as available" and "as is" basis. We do not guarantee that any of the information, products, services, facilities, resources or software we provide access to are fit for purpose, accurate or up to date. The entire CCFM service package is made available under the express condition that customers accept that they bear sole responsibility for the consequences that occur as a result of using the company's services and information. Under no circumstances do we accept any liability for any outcome experience, irrespective of the level of loss, damage or harm. All customers agree to and acknowledge the fact that the trading platform is operational 24 hours a day and that their trades and activities will continue whether or not they themselves are online at any particular time. Any issues or losses endured due to not being able to access the CCFM for any given reason represent the sole responsibility of the customer. In any instance where the actions of the customer result in the company facing any costs, losses, damages or liabilities, the full amount of the expenses will be demanded from the customer. All customers hereby agree to compensate the company for any and all expenses incurred due to the actions or inaction of the customer. Should the customer owe any money to the company for any given reason, this may be taken immediately from the customer's account balance or any subsequent winnings earned. Should it be determined that the customer has in any way breached the terms of their customer agreement, all outstanding debts will become payable immediately.
CCFM reserves the right to make amendments to any part of the customer agreement, without having to obtain permission from the customer. However, in the instance that any changes are to be made to the agreement, the customer will be provided with at least 10 days' notice. The new terms of the agreement will go into effect as of the date specified unless the customer chooses not to agree to the new terms. In such instances, it will be necessary for the customer to immediately close their account with CCFM. Should any aspect of our customer agreement become invalid, irrelevant or illegal at any time and for any given reason, it will not have any impact whatsoever on any of the other terms set out within the agreement. Therefore, the validity and enforceability of the rest of the agreement will remain unchanged. Should it be necessary to make amendments to the customer agreement for legal reasons, customers will be notified of this in advance. Customers who enter into a joint account with a second person accept that neither party has precedence over the other when it comes to authority over the account. Both customers will have equal rights to the account and the trading platform and will be treated as individual customers, with absolutely no consent being required from the second party for any decisions to be made or trades to be actioned. In the case of disputes or instances where conflicting information or requests are received from joint account holders, CCFM will proceed in accordance with the last instruction communicated. Severe disputes may lead to account suspension or closure. The client and the company will communicate using only the specified languages spoken by CCFM. It is important that customers have a strong grasp of at least one of the supported languages before considering opening an account. All communications provided by the customer will be sent to CCFM by way of e-mail or other electronic means ñ all such information being provided on our Contact Us page [https://ccfm.io/en/contact-us]. We will always endeavor to respond to all customer communications as quickly as possible, though we offer no guarantees with regard to response times. CCFM will always seek legal action against any customers the company determines to be or have been involved in any kind of activity we deem to be fraudulent, illegal or geared toward defamation of our company. We will also bring legal proceedings against those who infringe on the privacy of other customers, our own intellectual property and so on. This agreement and each of the terms therein apply solely and exclusively to the parties entering into the contract. Under no circumstances may any account holder at any time allowed any other individual to make use of the services and facilities granted to them, in accordance with their customer agreement. The agreement becomes binding the moment it is entered into by both parties and cannot in any way be contravened without express permission in writing from CCFM. If CCFM determines that an account has been left dormant for six (6) consecutive months, the company reserves the right to close the account and/or add a dormant fee of $20 per month. This also applies to instances where trading accounts are left with insufficient funds to carry out trading activities, trading activity is extremely low in volume or the time between trades carried out is excessively long. In such instances, a commission may be payable to the company which will be determined in accordance with the specifics of the case. Customers not intending to use their accounts on a regular basis for regular trading are advised to contact the CCFM customer service team for advice.
Upon registering with CCFM, customers will be requested to provide the company with a number of personal details in order for their accounts to be activated. Should the customer refuse to provide all the required information or be found to have provided incorrect information, their account will be rendered void. CCFM requires all customers to go through a verification process as a means by which for trading accounts to be activated. This is done in order to ensure that fraudulent activity is detected and dealt with before being given the chance to pose a risk to our customers and our business. The specifics of the verification process will be communicated during the initial sign up process. In any instance where a customer is unwilling to comply and go through the necessary verification process, their account will be rendered inactive. Customer accounts will only be credited with winnings upon verification that the trainer using the account is, in fact, the individual who opened and verified the account in the first place. Customers who open their accounts and begin trading by way of bank wire transfers will only be able to receive winnings via the same bank account. It is therefore of critical importance to ensure that all account details are provided in full and flawlessly accurate, in order to avoid bounced transactions or the requested funds ending up in the wrong account. Customers who open accounts and begin trading using credit cards will likewise only be able to request withdrawals back to the original card that was used to open the account. It is also imperative that the name on the credit card is the same name as the individual who opened the account. Customers are permitted to open one account only and have one active account in operation at any one time. Where multiple accounts are opened or false names used to open accounts, such accounts will be immediately frozen and all winnings forfeited. Upon request, customers may be required to provide CCFM with further evidence of their identity, which may include anything from passport or driving license scans to utility bills and similar documentation. If any such documentation is requested and not provided by the customer, the company reserves the right to suspend or even close accounts if the required evidence is not provided. All clients who wish to activate their trading account (in order to use the trading platform), must go through a process of voice verification with one of the company representatives. This condition means that the client needs to be in contact with his/her representative for voice verification in order to be allowed such actions as, deposit or withdrawal from his/her trading account. Refusal by the customer to comply with the condition above may result in immediate cancellation of the required transaction.
In order to comply with International Anti-Money Laundering Regulations, it is necessary for all customers of CCFM to be fully identity verified before accounts can be activated. We impose strict controls in order to ensure that stolen cards and identities may not be used by those looking to trade using our platform. If you are not required to verify your identity upon opening your account, you will be required to do so in order to make any subsequent withdrawals.
Brokerage services that work with Visa/MasterCard International are required to collect all required verification documents from your customers within no more than 72 hours from their initial deposit. If after this time there is still outstanding documentation, an e-mail will be sent as an urgent reminder. Should the accounts still not be fully verified and activated by the fifth day, all trading rights and account activities will be suspended until the account is verified.
