12. No guarantees
The Services of Tallinex are provided "as is" and Tallinex disclaims any express or implied guarantees. All utilization of the Services takes place at the sole risk of the user.

the Services or the material received through the Services corresponds to the user's expectations,
the Services are available uninterrupted or timely, reliably or flawlessly,
prices reflected in the trading platform are correct until fully settled, or
the accuracy and quality of the information which the user has received through the Services, is error-free, or otherwise meets the expectations of the user.

Client acknowledges that only one Request or Instruction is allowed to be in the queue at one time. Once Client has transmitted a Request or an Instruction, any further Requests or Instructions transmitted by Client are ignored and the “Order is locked” message appears until the first Request or Instruction has been executed.
Client acknowledges that the only reliable source of Quotes Flow information is that of the real/live Server’s Quotes Base. Quotes Base in the Client Terminal is not a reliable source of Quotes Flow information because the connection between the Client Terminal and the Server may be disrupted at some point and some Quotes simply may not reach the Client Terminal.
Client acknowledges that when Client closes the order placing/modifying/deleting window or the position opening/closing window, the Instruction or Request that has been sent to the Server shall not be cancelled.
In cases where Client has not received the execution result of the previously sent Instruction and decides to repeat that Instruction, Client accepts the risk of duplicating the Transaction.
Client acknowledges that if a Pending Order has already been executed and Client sends an Instruction to modify its level and the levels of If-Done Orders at the same time, only the Instruction to modify Stop Loss and/or Take Profit levels will be executed on the position opened when the Pending Order triggered.
Nothing in this agreement shall limit the statutory rights of the consumer.
13. Limitation of liability

Tallinex will inform users through written notification of the onset, estimated duration and cessation of the above-mentioned circumstances as soon as possible after the event has occurred, in so far as an announcement is possible. Written notification shall be understood as e-mail, mail or announcement on Tallinex’s website.
15. Governing Law and Jurisdiction
This Agreement, the rights and obligations of the parties hereto, and any judicial or administrative action or proceeding arising directly or indirectly hereunder or in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby, whether brought by Client or Tallinex, shall be governed by, construed and enforced in all respects by the laws of St Vincent and the Grenadines and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the St Vincent and the Grenadines courts.
If not otherwise stated in any applicable written Addenda, The Client may terminate the Operative Agreements with immediate effect by giving Written Notice to Tallinex. Accordingly, Tallinex may terminate the Operative Agreements with immediate effect by giving Written Notice to the Client. Any such termination will not affect any obligation which has already been incurred by either the Client or Tallinex in respect of any Open Position or any legal rights or obligations which may already have arisen under the Operative Agreements or any Transactions and deposit/withdrawal operations made thereunder. Upon termination Tallinex will be entitled without prior notice to the Client to cease to grant the Client access to the Trading Platform.

- all outstanding fees, charges and commissions;
- any dealing expenses incurred by terminating the Operative Agreements; and
- any losses and expenses realized in closing out any Transactions or settling or concluding outstanding obligations incurred by Tallinex on the Client's behalf.

If the Company suspects that a Client has abused or attempted to abuse a promotion, or otherwise acted with a lack of good faith towards the Company, then the Company reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to deny, withhold or withdraw from that Client any bonus or promotion and, if necessary, to cancel any terms and conditions with respect to that Client, either temporarily or permanently, or terminate that Client's access to the service and/or block that Client's Account. The Company will not be liable for any stop outs or any other consequences that result from a bonus cancellation and/or removal

100% Withdrawable Deposit Bonus (Validity: January 1st, 2015 - )
a) only new deposits are eligible, not inter-account / wallet transfers
b) the specified minimum number of lots must be traded for each 1.00 of bonus
i.e. if the requirement is '0.5 lots per $1' then deposit $100 and trade 50.00 lots
c) partial withdrawals of bonus amounts are not permitted - each calendar month deposit bonus total must be achieved in full
Once sufficient volume has been traded, the current bonus amount shall be transferred into the account wallet and instantly available for withdrawal. Qualification for any subsequent deposit amount will then begin immediately. Any deviation from, or attempt to circumvent, the bonus criteria renders the offer null and void.
100% Credit Bonus + Credit Withdrawal (Validity: March 1st, 2014 - December 31st, 2014)
a) the account must be new and introduced via referral ID 111268 or 106372
b) a minimum of 0.80 lots must be traded for each 1.00 of bonus
i.e. deposit $100 and trade 80.00 lots
c) partial withdrawals are not permitted
Following verification of adequate traded volume, the current credit bonus amount shall be converted into deposit to be traded and/or instantly available for withdrawal. Any deviation from the bonus criteria renders the offer null and void.
100% Credit Bonus + Bonus Scaling (Validity: December 3rd, 2013 - December 31st, 2014)
a) the account type must be ECN-MICRO

d) a minimum of 0.25 lots must be traded for each 1.00 of bonus
Following verification of the results, the account holder must choose whether to accept a cash bonus equal to 1,000% of the balance increase (instantly available for withdrawal) or to attempt another 1,000% balance increase. Any deviation from the bonus criteria renders the offer null and void. Maximum of one cash bonus per account.
100% Credit Bonus (Validity: April 1st, 2013 - )
- Increased Leverage
- Protection from Margin Calls and Stop Outs during drawdown periods
- Minimum deposit reduced from US$1,000 to just US$500 due to the 100% credit bonus
This deposit-based offer applies specifically to PRO-MANAGED accounts linked to particular Money Managers
The offer applies only to new deposits of at least US$500 (or equivalent)
The maximum amount that can be awarded under this bonus offer is US$50,000 (or equivalent) per trading account. If a Client has multiple trading accounts then the total sum awarded across all eligible trading accounts cannot exceed US$100,000 (or equivalent)
Internal fund transfers between Tallinex trading accounts owned by the same Client are considered withdrawals - bonus reduction will therefore occur if the amount being transferred from a 100% Credit Bonus account reduces the account balance below the level of deposit for which the bonus was awarded
- Credit Bonuses cannot be transferred to other accounts other than by special prior arrangement between Tallinex and the respective Money Manager
