You can order the Services through the Website by completing the appropriate registration or order form. After registration, we will e-mail you the login details for the Client Section and/or Trading Platform and allow you to access them.

The fee for the SGB Challenge varies according to the option selected and depends on the amount of the initial capital, the degree of the acceptable risk, the parameters that must be fulfilled so that the conditions of the SGB Challenge and the subsequent Verification are met, and possibly other configurations. More detailed information on individual options and fees for those options are provided on our website here. The final fee will be determined based on the option you select when completing the form for ordering the SGB Challenge. The Provider reserves the right to also provide the Services under individually agreed conditions. All individually agreed conditions shall be determined by the Provider at its own discretion. Individual discounts and other benefits may not be combined, unless expressly stipulated otherwise by the Provider.
The fee is paid for allowing you to access the SGB Challenge, or the Services provided under the SGB Challenge. The Customer is not entitled to a refund of the fee, for example, if the Customer cancels the Customer’s Client Section or requests the cancellation by e-mail, if the Customer terminates the use of the Services prematurely (for example, fails to complete the SGB Challenge or the Verification), fails to meet the conditions of the SGB Challenge or the Verification, or violates these GTC.
If the Customer lodges an unjustifiable complaint regarding the paid fee or disputes the paid fee with the Customer’s bank or payment service provider (e.g. through chargeback services, dispute services, or other similar services), on the basis of which an annulment, cancellation or refund of the fee or any part thereof is requested, the Provider is entitled, at its own discretion, to stop providing to the Customer any services and refuse any future provision of any services.
Your choice of the option of the SGB Challenge that you select when making an order shall also apply to the subsequent Verification. You will start the subsequent Verification and, possibly, other products related thereto, with the parameters and the same currency that correspond to the option of the SGB Challenge selected by you. Once you make a selection, it is not possible to change it.
the Provider reserves the right to unilaterally change the fees and parameters of the Services at any time, including the parameters for their successful completion. The change does not affect the Services purchased before the change is notified.
