Breakdown of ExpertOption terms and conditions
ExpertOption regularly runs bonus campaigns which make it easy for their customers to make extra money from the platform. Here’s a breakdown of bonus campaigns as ExpertOption explains in their terms and conditions.
A bonus campaign is defines as a range of company incentives which are meant to attract customers to the platform. These include bonuses, contests and discounts.
ExpertOption provides bonuses which are simply a financial reward you’ll receive after opening a real account. The bonus is usually calculated as a percentage of the total amount you initially deposit when opening an account.
Mandatory Trading Volume
Once a bonus is received, it cannot be immediately withdrawn. You must meet the mandatory trading volume to be able to withdraw the bonus amount. The mandatory trading volume is simply the minimum transaction volume you must make before the bonus amount can be withdrawn.
Rules regarding bonus campaigns
ExpertOption runs these promotional campaigns as part of their Corporate Rewards Program. So any such campaign a customer participates in must only be offered by ExpertOption. In addition, ExpertOption will change the rules applying to a particular campaign depending on the scope of the incentive campaign.
How do you participate in ExpertOption incentives campaigns and who’s eligible?
Any trader who meets the eligibility criteria for a specific incentive campaign may participate. The eligibility criteria are set by the company. For example, earning a bonus by depositing a specified minimum amount.
In order to participate, you must first give your consent. This gives ExpertOption the right to publish your personal data on their website for promotional purposes.
Anyone who’s an employee, affiliate or partner to the ExpertOption platform is prohibited from participating in incentive campaigns it runs.
ExpertOption rights and responsibilities regarding promotional campaigns ExpertOption has the right to use promotional campaign results for commercial and advertising purposes. This means that winner’s details will be published on the ExpertOption website or any other media.
ExpertOption may terminate one, several or all incentive campaigns at any time without giving prior notice to traders. The company will not be held responsible for any losses and costs incurred on the trader’s part as a result of an incentive program being terminated. So if a bonus campaign is terminated, you shouldn’t expect to receive the bonus money in any form.
In the event of detection of fraud, breaking of campaign rules, technical hitches or any condition which compromises the integrity of any promotional campaign, ExpertOption reserves the right to revoke the incentive offered or bonus program. As a result, ExpertOption will not be responsible for paying the customer involved the bonus program.
Finally, ExpertOption has the right to deny a trader entry to incentive campaigns without providing any explanation for their actions.
ExpertOption Rules Regarding Bonuses
A bonus is simply the amount accumulated in a traders account. It’s usually calculated based on the amount deposited in the traders account. This is unless ExpertOption specifies otherwise based in specific incentive campaign rules.
Bonuses attract a compulsory trading volume. This is determined independently by ExpertOption and the value depends on the particular incentive campaign currently running.
The compulsory trading volume is set at the bonus amount multiplied by 50. For example, if you receive a bonus amount of $100, you should trade a minimum of $5000 in order to be able to redeem the bonus amount. This compulsory trading volume applied to both bonuses offered when you deposit funds to your account as well as bonuses offered without deposits being made.
Transactions that end t the Money’ are not included in the required transaction volume. t the Money’ transactions are those that expire at actual price at the time of expiry. In such cases, you’ll neither make money from your trade nor lose your invested amount.
A bonus cannot be redeemed more than once. Also, each trader is entitled to receive a onetime bonus only under incentive or reward campaigns.
You can only cancel a bonus before using it. For example, you can opt out of a bonus during the account deposit process. Once used, you cannot cancel a bonus. For example, if you use part of the bonus to trade and win/lose, you cannot cancel the remaining part of the bonus amount.
The bonus received under the terms of the bonus program will only be credited into your account after the bonus program has been validated.
Bonus amounts and trader accounts are only allowed to be withdrawn after the compulsory transaction volume has been reached. This means that trade profits cannot be withdrawn until the transaction volume has been reached.
It’s worth noting that all incomplete withdrawals are automatically cancelled after the bonus code has been applied. Withdrawals are only possible once the compulsory transaction volume has been attained.
