    9. When a corresponding Order is placed in the Order Book, the Maker's open Order will result in an executed Trade at the price the Maker posted to the Order Book. Makers are charged a fee, which is automatically debited from the Maker's Globitex Account in the relevant quote currency if fees are applicable to Maker’s orders.

Any unfulfilled remainder will remain as an open Maker Order in the Order-book until it is either cancelled or expired or matched to a corresponding Order.

    12. Taker Price Improvement. Taker Orders are matched against existing Maker Orders at the price of the Maker Order posted in the Order-book, not at the price of the Taker Order.

Maker Orders will always be executed at the posted Order-book price.

      When you contact us please provide us with your full name, address, and any other information we may need to identify you, your Globitex Account number, and the transaction on which you have feedback, questions, or complaints.

    2. Complaints. In the event of a complaint, in addition, please set out the cause of your complaint, how you would like us to resolve the complaint and any other information you believe to be relevant.

    3. Complaint Process. Globitex ensures that the complaint investigation process is handled by the personnel that have the skills, knowledge and experience required for this function.

    4. Request for Additional Information. In case the submitted complaint lacks information needed for the investigation, Globitex will ask you to eliminate the shortcomings of the complaint by specifying the substance of the complaint or providing additional documents or data needed for the complaint’s investigation. In such case Globitex sets a reasonable time limit, which cannot be shorter than 7 days to eliminate the shortcomings of the complaint.

    5. Timeline. Globitex will investigate the complaint and provide response as soon as possible, but not later than within 30 days from the date of receipt of the complaint. The term commences from the date of receipt of the complaint or provision of additional required information. Exceptionally, when the complaint cannot be investigated within 30 days, Globitex will inform you about the circumstances and the new term for response.

    6. Arguments for rejection. When the complaint is rejected or only partially satisfied, Globitex will provide arguments of rejection to fully satisfy the complaint.

    7. Offers. Any offer made during complaint review will only become binding on Globitex if you accept the offer by following the instructions provided by Globitex within the stated timeframe. Any offer under this clause will not constitute any admission by Globitex of any wrongdoing or liability regarding the subject matter of the complaint. Any acceptance of an offer by you will constitute an acceptance that the complaint is resolved and an undertaking that you will not file a claim in any competent court against Globitex regarding the subject matter of the complaint.

    8. Claims. You agree to use the complaints procedure according of this Chapter before filing any claim in a competent court. Failure to comply with this provision may be used as evidence of your unwillingness to settle the issue.

Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
