November First can enter into an agreement with various financial companies that provide exchange rates on an ongoing basis through the Platform to November First’s Customers.

In addition, November First charges a transaction fee for each transaction. November First will always make the Customer aware of this by stating the amount of the fee in connection with the offer for settlement for a transaction.

Most often, costs connected to international payments are distributed, so that the Customer pays costs to November First, and the beneficiary pays costs to their bank.

November First offers the Customer the possibility to pay the beneficiary’s costs abroad concerned with the transaction.

November First charges a small administration fee if a transaction is rejected by a correspondent bank due to incorrect settlement instructions given by the Customer. The fee will be calculated based on the time needed by November First to resolve the issue based on a fixed hourly rate shown in November First's Price List available on www.novemberfirst.com

8.2 Languages

November First reserves the right to communicate with customers in both Danish and English.

  1. Acceptance of market risks, system failures, etc.

9.1 Exchange rate fluctuations

The Customer acknowledges, accept, and understands that:

  • when the Customer instructs November First to settle a transaction, any dividends or losses resulting from fluctuations in exchange rates, etc. are solely the Customer's responsibility and risk and;
  • The Customer guarantees that the Customer is willing and able, financially, and otherwise, to take on the responsibility of the risk of trading speculative financial transactions.

9.2 Delay

November First offers the Customer real-time prices based on offers obtained from November First's business partners. Due to delayed transmission between the Customer and November First, a price offered by November First may have changed before an order from the Customer is received by November First.

If a price has changed beyond the tolerance limit set by November First for currency exchange, the Customer will be asked to obtain a new settlement offer. 

9.3 Technical errors

November First does not take on the responsibility of the risk of consequential loss, consequential damages or other indirect loss, loss of data or losses due to virus programs or cyber-attacks, Customer's loss or indirect loss, expenses or costs incurred by the Customer due to system failures, transmission errors, errors due to incorrect information or delays or similar technical errors by the Customer, unless November First has shown gross negligence in doing so.

November First cannot be held responsible for the accuracy, completeness, quality, and reliability of the information, nor the results obtained through these third-party solutions or the work performed by third parties. In addition, November First cannot be held responsible for the availability, security, or functionality of third-party solutions, including of possible damages and/or loss caused by third-party solutions.

9.4 Use of correspondent banks

When executing a foreign transaction, November First's correspondent bank abroad is not necessarily the same as the beneficiary's bank. In some cases, November First uses selected correspondent banks and international clearing systems to conduct the transactions, see section 9.6.

Regardless of whether the Customer, November First or its business partners have chosen the correspondent bank, November First is not responsible for any errors by the chosen bank used, nor for its solvency. Applicable legal rules, customs, and terms applicable to November First's agreement with the foreign financial institution, apply to the Customer equivalently.

9.5 Customer’s Risk using November First's payment services in the event of bankruptcy and risk transition between parties involved

For November First to preserve its license as a payment institution from the Danish FSA, Law No 1024 Payments Act require that November First, both provides solvency as security for customers possible loss on payments and execute payments on behalf of the Customer via segregated accounts. This ensures the Customer's funds against creditor prosecution in the event of November First going bankrupt.

November First complies with all legal requirements and complies with the required policies and procedures that November First are subject to in connection with being supervised by the Danish FSA. This implies the following for the Customer's risks of using November First for payments in connection with bankruptcy:

  • According to the Payments Act, a payment institution such as November First A/S is required by law to secure the funds transferred from the Customer as part of the execution of a transaction. At November First A/S, the funds are secured by placing them in a separate account, a so-called segregated account, with SEB (Skandiviska Enskilda Banken), where the Customer’s funds are secured in the event of bankruptcy of November First A/S. A trustee will thus not be able to make outlays in the Customers on behalf of creditors. Customers' payments will instead either be transferred to final recipient or returned to the Customer.

9.6 Customer's bankruptcy risk at November Firsts banking partner

November First A/S cooperates with SEB – Skandinaviska Enskilda Bank. The bank is one of the largest banks in Europe in the currency area, allowing November First to secure favourable exchange rates for its customers. The Bank has also been designated as the Swedish SIFI (Systematic Important Financial Institution), which is why there are additional requirements for their solvency and financial readiness. This reduces the risk for November First's Customers.

The Customer's risk in connection with possible bankruptcy of SEB relates to the moment when the Customer has transferred amounts to November First's account in SEB and SEB may go bankrupt. European capital markets rules ensure that all payments from November First are considered to be in transit and therefore must be settled before bankruptcy takes effect.

9.7 Customer risks after sending payment to final recipient

The rules for capital markets also ensure that payments made by November First initiate from/to SEB's partner banks on the execution of payment to the final beneficiary are considered in "transit", which means that payments must be executed before bankruptcy occurs.

As SIFI, SEB is required to continuously monitor its correspondent banks' "health" and thus routes payments based on this.

  1. Customer’s liability

If the Customer has acted fraudulently, has failed to notify November First of irregular or improper use of the Platform, or has not fulfilled its obligations in connection with a transaction or as a consequence of these terms, November First is entitled to claim compensation from the Customer for any loss incurred by November First as a result.

The Customer is liable in relation to and for transactions carried out using the Customer's password, regardless of whether such use is unwarranted.

The Customer shall, in accordance with the procuration rules, be liable for any loss that November First may suffer as a result of receiving instructions from a person who (explicitly or tacitly) has the authorization on behalf of the Customer to give instructions to November First.

  1. Measures

11.1 Monitoring and control

November First monitors all customer relationships on an ongoing basis in accordance with the Money Laundering Act, including changes in the Customer’s owner structure, transactional patterns etc.

November First also monitors all transactions one by one in relation to the beneficiary, which is screened against the official sanctions lists, such as the EU financial sanctions database and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' list of sanctioned entities and/or countries as well as politically exposed persons (PEP). If a customer transfers any amount to beneficiaries registered on such lists, the transfer may be delayed, stopped, and the funds may be frozen.

If November First asserts circumstances that appear suspicious in relation to money laundering and/or terrorist financing, November First must and will immediately report the matter to the Public Prosecutor for Special Economic and International Crime, in accordance with Section 26 of the Danish Money Laundering Act.

11.2 Deactivation or blocking of the Customer’s November First account

In connection with the delivery of November First’s services, November First is entitled to take the measures which in its reasonable discretion, deems necessary and reasonable to ensure compliance with market rules and the law in general.

November First is entitled to permanently or temporarily, partially, or completely, block the Customer's access to the Platform. The cases in which November First is entitled to dispose in this way include, but is not limited to, where:

  • November First considers that abnormal trades are taking place, or
  • November First is not able to calculate prices for the relevant transaction because the relevant market information is not available or is outdated.

November First will, if possible, notify the Customer of the deactivation/block and the reasons for it, before the deactivation/block takes place or, if this is not possible, immediately after.

When the reasons for the block are no longer present, it is lifted, and the Customer will immediately have access to the Platform again.

11.3 Recording of conversations

To ensure documentation of agreed transactions and optimal service to the Customer, November First may record telephone conversations. Customers are informed separately on this.

11.4 Claims of US authorities
