12.3            Fortrade shall immediately and automatically be discharged from any obligation under this Agreement (including without limitation any obligation arising out of or in connection with any Trade) that it is wholly or partially unable to perform as a direct or indirect result of a Force Majeure Event and Fortrade shall not in such circumstances be liable for any losses, damages, costs or expenses howsoever incurred by the Client or any Authorised User.

13.2            Fortrade may in certain circumstances hold Client Money in an account with a bank or third party located outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Monies within this account will where possible be segregated from Fortrade’s money and assets which may be held with the relevant bank or third party. The legal and regulatory regime applying to such bank or third party may be different to that of the United Kingdom and in the event of the insolvency of that bank or third party, the Client’s money may not be as effectively protected as if it were held with an equivalent bank or third party in the United Kingdom.
13.3            Fortrade may from time to time require the Client to provide Collateral. The Client acknowledges and agrees that, where permitted by applicable law or regulation, title to any such Collateral shall transfer to Fortrade and that Fortrade shall not therefore treat such Collateral as Client Money. The Client further acknowledges that in such circumstances it will not be afforded any Client Money protection in relation to such Collateral and that it would rank as a general creditor of Fortrade in relation to the Collateral in the event of Fortrade’s insolvency.
13.4           If the Client is a Professional Client or Eligible Counterparty by signing this Agreement, the Client agrees and acknowledges that, unless it notifies Fortrade otherwise in writing, its money will not be treated as client money for the purposes of the FCA Rules, and that full title to and ownership of such money received by Fortrade in connection with the Client’s Account is transferred to Fortrade for the purpose of securing or covering the Client’s present or future, actual or contingent or prospective obligations.
13.5            As a result of clause 13.4, yourthe Client’s money will not be segregated by Fortrade and may be used by Fortrade in the course of its business. The Client will not have a proprietary claim over these funds and will rank as a general creditor of Fortrade. Fortrade will transfer an equivalent amount of money back to the Client where it considers, in its sole discretion, that the amount of money it has transferred to Fortrade is greater than the amount required to cover the Client’s present and future obligations to Fortrade. Where the Client notifies Fortrade that it wishes its money to be treated as client money and Fortrade has consented to such request, it will be treated in the manner set out in clause 13.1 above.
13.6           The Client acknowledges, unless otherwise agreed, that Fortrade does not pay interest on Client Money and the Client waives any right it may have to receive interest on Client Money.
14.1            Any notice or other writing required or permitted to be given under this Agreement or for the purposes of this Agreement (“Notice”) shall be in writing and shall:

Any other amendments must be agreed to in writing between Fortrade and the Client.
20.3          A waiver of any right under the Agreement or law is only effective if it is in writing and shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any subsequent breach or default. No failure or delay by a party in exercising any right or remedy provided under the Agreement or by law shall constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it prevent or restrict its further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. No single or partial exercise of such right or remedy shall prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy.
20.4          Nothing in the Agreement is intended to, or shall be deemed to, establish any partnership or joint venture between the parties, nor constitute either party the agent of the other for any purpose.
