Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite.

Decisions to buy, sell, hold or trade in securities and other investments involve risk and are best made based on the advice of qualified financial professionals. Any trading in securities or other investments involves a risk of substantial losses. The practice of “Day Trading” involves particularly high risks and can cause you to lose substantial sums of money. Before undertaking any trading program, you should consult a qualified financial professional. Please consider carefully whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition and ability to bear financial risks.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES; IN THOSE JURISDICTIONS OUR LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

Some of our services are works in progress and we reserve the right to change, modify and even discontinue these at our sole discretion. By posting content to our websites or in any other way contribute to our service, you agree that we have a perpetual and unlimited license to republish anything you post or transmit, or derivatives thereof, through the service. We have the right to, without prior notice and at our sole discretion, remove any post, terminate any membership, or take any action for violating the rules and conditions set forth on this page.

We ask you to use our services in a lawful, civil and fair manner. You may not, for example:

Post, transmit or link to any content that is disruptive, uncivil, abusive, vulgar, profane, obscene, hateful, sexually explicit, spam, marketing, promotion of product or service, fraudulent, threatening, harassing, defamatory, or which discloses private or personal matters concerning any person;
Post or transmit any material that you don’t have the right to transmit under law (such as copyrights, trade secrets, or securities) or under contractual or fiduciary relationships (such as nondisclosure agreements);
Violate any applicable law or regulation while accessing and using our sites, including, without limitation, the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, National Futures Association, CFTC, and the national or other securities exchanges (especially and including the rule against making false or misleading statements to manipulate the price of any security);
Offer, sell, or buy any security, product or financial instrument;

Please maintain the confidentiality of your password. Contact us if you encounter or hear about any suspicious activity related to the use of our services.

The performance results on this site are hypothetical in nature and Fxexplained.co.uk makes no representation that these results reflect trading in an actual account. In fact, many of our members use so called demo accounts which may not be subject to broker fees, commissions, margin calls and other factors that would adversely affect the performance if trading was done in an actual account. Furthermore, the results presented reflect only completed trades and do not take in to account any loss or gain from open positions.

HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM.

ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.

At Fxexplained.co.uk (“Fxexplained“, “we“, “us“), we process personal data about our customers and visitors on our websites (“you“). We make efforts to handle your personal data with care, keep it secure and comply with data protection laws.

1. Who is responsible for looking after your personal data?

Optilab Partners AB having its registered address Fatburs Brunnsgata 31, 118 28 Stockholm, Sweden, is principally responsible for looking after your personal data (your Data Controller). Data Controller means the company that determines the means and purposes of processing of personal data.

When accessing your personal data, all companies will comply with the standards set out in this Policy.

  • meet or exercise any of our legal obligations or rights.

We will only process your personal data for the purposes set out in this Section 3 and where we are satisfied that:

  • you have provided your consent to us using the data in that way, or
  • our use of your personal data is necessary to support ‘legitimate interests’ that we have as a business (for example, to improve our products, or to carry out analytics across our datasets), in a way that is proportionate and respects your privacy.

4. Who do we share your personal data with?

We work with many third parties, to help manage our business and deliver services. These third parties may from time to time need to have access to your personal data:

  • Our analytics service provider Google, who process personal data for their own purposes as Data Controllers. Please refer to our Cookie Policy in the Appendix below in order to identify how you may prevent access to your personal data by analytics providers.
  • Service providers or data processors that handle your personal data on our instructions, for example cloud services who operate on a global basis, located inside or outside the EU/EEA.
  • If we are under a duty to disclose to comply with a legal obligation or protect our interests or security.
  • In the event we sell or re-organise Fxexplained, including prospective buyers.

5. International Transfers

International Transfers mean that personal data is transferred to a country outside the European Union.

As set out in Section 4 above, we may allow access to your personal data to third parties who may be located outside the European Union.

We may also disclose your personal data if we receive a legal or regulatory request from a foreign law enforcement body outside the European Union.

We will always take steps to ensure that any international transfer of information is managed to protect your rights and interests. Any requests for information that we receive from law enforcement or regulators will be carefully checked before personal data is disclosed.

You have the right to ask us for more information about the safeguards we have put in place as mentioned above. Contact us (see Section 8) if you wish further information.

6. Direct Marketing

We will use your personal data to send you newsletters and direct marketing communications regarding products and services that we and our partners offer regarding financial information and services. This may be in the form of email or targeted online advertisements.

In some cases our processing of your personal data for marketing purposes will be based on our legitimate interests (see Section 3 above). When required by law it will be based on your consent.

You always have a right to say no to further direct marketing, at any time. You can use the opt-out link that you find in all direct marketing communications, or by contacting us (see Section 8).

We take steps to limit direct marketing to a reasonable and proportionate level, and to send you communications that we believe may be of interest or relevance to you, based on the information we have about you.

7.How long do we keep your personal data?

We will retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary for the purposes listed in Section 3 of this Policy.

In some circumstances we keep your personal data during a certain period to meet for example legal, tax or accounting requirements.

We maintain a data retention policy for personal data in our care. Where your personal data is no longer required we will ensure it is either securely deleted or made anonymous.
