General remarks:

Complementary to the contracts entered between Securitas Aurum Ltd. and its customers, the following General Standard Terms and Conditions are considered an integral part of these contracts.  These conditions are known to the customer before the latter entered a contractual relationship with Securitas Aurum and were accepted by him/her.  This fact was further confirmed by the client upon placing the order.

The processing fees are to be paid by the client in full in any event within the first contractual year, unless the customer legally revokes the orders made as stated herein.  The settlement of the processing fees are payable as follows within the established 12 months:

After this 12 months period has passed, and should there still be outstanding amounts pending of payment in relation to the processing fees by the client, Securitas Aurum reserves the right to invoice and debit the corresponding unpaid invoiced amounts against any other credits the client may have with the company.

§ 1  Description of the marketing concept "clients win clients":

The purchaser is not obliged to participate in the marketing concept offered by Securitas Aurum and can fulfill the purchase contract by simply paying its full amount.  This payment method can also be selected even if the client has already initiated his/her recommendation activities. The marketing concept or Accumulation Plan is structured according to the following 3 phases:

1.1. First Phase:
The first phase is completed once the client has successfully accumulated 14 contracts through direct and indirect recommendations within his/her own recommendation line. This means that below his/her own contract, levels one, two and three have to be filled in.

Once this is achieved, the contract holder receives a credit in the amount of € 100.00 for the payment of the gold ordered. Furthermore and in the event that the corresponding Processing Fees have not yet been paid in full, these, plus the legally applicable V.A.T., shall be deducted from this amount. 

1.2. Second Phase:

The contract remains in the second phase until such time at which, by direct and indirect recommendations within the same recommendation line, 6 more contracts have been accumulated below the resulting First phase contracts. In this case, the first and second levels beneath these contracts need to be filled in. 

Once this is achieved, the contract holder receives a further credit in the amount of € 1.100.00 for the payment of the gold ordered. Furthermore and in the event that the corresponding Processing Fees have not yet been paid in full, these, plus the legally applicable V.A.T., shall be deducted from this amount. 

1.3. Third Phase:

The contract remains in the third phase until such time at which, by direct and indirect recommendations within the same recommendation line, 6 more contracts have been accumulated below the resulting second phase contracts. In this case, the first and second levels beneath these contracts need to be filled in.

Once this is achieved, the contract holder receives a further credit in the amount of € 3.600.00 for the payment of the gold ordered. Furthermore and in the event that the corresponding Processing Fees have not yet been paid in full, these, plus the legally applicable V.A.T., shall be deducted from this amount. 

All the credits achieved upon completion of the different phases cannot be paid in cash but will be used exclusively for the payment of the Gold Bullion Coins ordered by the client. 

Failure to comply with the recommendation line, Securitas Aurum reserves the right, at all times, to correct the positioning of the orders so that these respect the mandatory recommendation line for each contract. This applies particularly in those cases where the client, through any improper advice, has clear disadvantages from the wrong positioning of his/her own direct or indirect contracts. Each recommender is familiar with the principle that the recommendation lines must be adhered to so that the corresponding rewards flow exactly to where they are deserved.

1.4. Calculation relating to the Accumulation Plan 1 – GOLD COINS:

The payment of the purchase price of € 4,900.00 is detailed as follows:

1) Deposit of € 100.00
2) Referral bonus upon completion of Phase 1 = € 100.00
3) Referral bonus upon completion of Phase 2 = € 1,100.00
4) Referral bonus upon completion of Phase 3 = € 3,600.00

Total sum as a result of the above (points 1-4) = € 4,900.00

From this sum, a processing or administration fee of 5% plus 18% taxes will be deducted = € 289,10. The deduction of these processing fees takes place after completion of Phases 1 and 2 and as described below:

After completion of Phase 1, the amount of € 25,00 is deducted.
After completion of phase 2, the remainder sum of € 264,10 is deducted.

Should the client complete his/her contract outside the statutory revocation period, then the full fee will have to be paid immediately by the client upon completion of the contract, in which case the deposit paid in the amount of € 100.00 will be compensated with the overdue fees and will NOT be refunded.

1.5. Specific information concerning the purchase of gold bars:

Each contract has a total purchase price of € 6.500,00. The purchase price can be paid as follows:

  1. Immediate payment of the complete purchase price of 6.500,00 €;
  2. Payment of an initial deposit [minimum 500,00 €] and the balance payable within 12 months;
  3. Payment of a deposit amounting to € 500,00 and participation in the marketing concept "clients win clients", (also known as Accumulation Plan) of Securitas Aurum.  The time frame for the fulfillment of the contract is also of 12 months.

For each contract valued at € 6.500,00, a management and processing fee equivalent to 7.5% net of the purchase price will be charged (€ 487.50 plus the pertinent legal V.A.T.) The processing fees are to be paid immediately by the client and in full in any event within the first calendar year, unless the customer revokes the orders made as established herein.  The settlement of the processing fees is to be carried out as follows:

  1. Initial settlement through the payment of the deposit equivalent to 500.00 € per contract;
  2. Debiting of the remaining balance from the personal CSS account;
  3. Subsequent settlement of the still pending processing fees following the first achieved credits / referral bonuses as a result of successful direct and indirect recommendations;
  4. Invoicing of the remaining balance of the pending processing fees after the pertinent 12 months, should there still be amounts open in that respect in favour of Securitas Aurum.

The Processing fees are charged for the following services:

  1. Setting up and maintenance of customer accounts;
  2. Administration of the purchase agreements including the multi-lingual customer service;
  3. Implementation of customer-specific supportive;
  4. Control of all the deposits and recommendations as well as the administration of the corresponding credits/debits of the purchase price;
  5. Immediate notification by e-mail to the customer as soon as changes have occurred in his/her recommendation account;
  6. Management and administration of all the recommendations, which in turn are converted into individual customer accounts.

The delivery costs are not included in the Processing Fees.

Description of the marketing concept "clients win clients":

The purchaser is not obliged to participate in the marketing concept offered by Securitas Aurum and can fulfill the purchase contract by simply paying its full amount.  This payment method can also be selected even if the client has already initiated his/her recommendation activities. The marketing concept or Accumulation Plan is structured according to the following 2 phases:

First Phase:

The first phase is completed once the client has successfully accumulated 14 contracts through direct and indirect recommendations within his/her own recommendation line. This means that below his/her own contract, levels one, two and three have to be filled in.

Once this is achieved, the contract holder receives a credit in the amount of € 1.500.00 for the payment of the gold ordered. Furthermore and in the event that the corresponding Processing Fees have not yet been paid in full, these, plus the legally applicable V.A.T., shall be deducted from this amount. 

Second Phase:

The contract remains in the second phase until such time at which, by direct and indirect recommendations within the same recommendation line, 6 more contracts have been accumulated below the resulting First phase contracts. In this case, the first and second levels beneath these contracts need to be filled in. 

Once this is achieved, the contract holder receives a further credit in the amount of € 4.500.00 for the payment of the gold ordered. Furthermore and in the event that the corresponding Processing Fees have not yet been paid in full, these, plus the legally applicable V.A.T., shall be deducted from this amount. 

All the credits achieved upon completion of the different phases cannot be paid in cash but will be used exclusively for the payment of the Gold Bars ordered by the client.

Failure to comply with the recommendation line, Securitas Aurum reserves the right, at all times, to correct the positioning of the orders so that these respect the mandatory recommendation line for each contract. This applies particularly in those cases where the client, through any improper advice, has clear disadvantages from the wrong positioning of his/her own direct or indirect contracts. Each recommender is familiar with the principle that the recommendation lines must be adhered to so that the corresponding rewards flow exactly to where they are deserved.

Important information concerning the delivery of gold:

The gold ordered can only be delivered once the contract has been fulfilled and only when all the deposits paid by the recommended clients for the involved contracts are no longer subject to the statutory revocation clause.  Securitas Aurum strictly follows these legal rules since, in the event of revocation within the legally accepted time frame, the company is obliged to reimburse the deposits made by the client(s).  The gold request is carried out by the customer after partial or complete fulfillment of the contract by means of his/her CSS/Premium-CSS. The price applicable is that published at the time of the request in the website of Securitas Aurum. Securitas Aurum is purely a gold dealer, hence no goods are stored in the premises of the company.  Securitas Aurum is not involved in speculative activities in the gold market and the goods are only ordered after the request has been made by the clients. 

§ 2 Contract Duration:

Each contract, independently of the method of payment chosen by the client, has a legal time frame of 12 months and must be fulfilled by the purchaser within that period, i.e., within this period the gold ordered has to be paid for in full and accepted by the client.  Should the client not be able to fulfill the contract within the legally established time frame herein, he/she may apply in writing per email at least 14 days before contract expiry date, for an extension of the pertinent contracts. The expiry date for each contract is reflected in the data of each personal CSS.  Should the client not apply for an extension of the contract(s) in time or fulfill the contract(s) within the established time frame, the affected contract(s) will be considered as cancelled. Securitas Aurum can agree to this contract extension after examining the case, but also reject the request. If the due processing fees not be paid in full, they will be invoiced upon cancellation.

In addition, the contract holder will receive, 2 weeks prior to the expiry date of the contract, a notification from Securitas Aurum to the email address given by the client upon registration, informing/reminding the client about the impending expiry date of the contract.  The fees for the renewal of the contracts are included in the CSS renewal fees.  If on the other hand, the customer wishes to extend his/her contract without the CSS for an additional year, the renewal fees are equivalent to 0.5% of the total order, plus V.A.T.

A contract renewal will also extend the payment period for the full payment of the processing fees. These are, as described under “1.4” above, only payable after completion of Phases 1 and 2, i.e., every time when the corresponding referral bonuses have been credited.

Contract renewal with requested payment option 3: Participation in the marketing concept CUSTOMERS WIN CUSTOMERS

Securitas Aurum will only agree to a contract renewal if at least 2 direct recommendations have been successfully made within the preceding contractual period. If a customer is not interested in making recommendations, he may at any time, but latest upon the request to renew the pertinent contracts, change the chosen method of payment.  Please note that sending an invoice for the extension of the CSS does not automatically imply a contract renewal.  The latter will be communicated to the customer by e-mail after examining the corresponding case.

If the customer decides to cancel his order after the statutory cancellation period of 2 weeks, the client will NOT be entitled to a refund of the deposits made. This amount will then be deducted for the payment of the Processing Fees for the cancelled contracts.

Please note that when requesting for an extension of the purchase contract(s), the Terms and Conditions of Securitas Aurum applicable are those published in the official website of Securitas Aurum at the time the application is made for the extension of the contract(s).  A contract extension will not be permitted if the current Terms and Conditions of Securitas Aurum are not accepted. All canceled and unpaid orders will not contribute to the completion of other orders!

§ 3 Terms of delivery:

The gold ordered will be delivered to the buyer only after the contract has been fulfilled and only after all involved payments of the related orders are no longer subject to the legally applicable revocation clause.

Securitas Aurum purchases its gold through normal trading channels directly from the banks at the current daily prices and according to the predefined conditions imposed by the banks.

In addition to any third party costs, Securitas Aurum charges a processing fee equivalent to 5% of the purchase price for orders of gold coins and 7.5% of the purchase price for the order of gold bars. This fee is independent of the chosen method of contract fulfillment and includes both processing and administration costs. The shipping costs of the goods are not included in these service fees and are therefore to be paid by the buyer upon delivery request of the gold order.

Should it not be possible for Securitas Aurum to deliver the gold to a client due to reasons not imputable to the company, then the buyer will receive a refund of the purchase price paid less the corresponding Processing Fees.  

Important notice about the tax regulations of each country:

"Investment coins and gold bars are, in accordance with Council Directive 77/388/EEC of 17 May 1977 as amended by Directive 98/80/EC of 12 October 1998 and published (Investment coins included in the list of tax exempt items in accordance with Article 26b, point A, ii) in the Official Journal of the European Union, OJ. EU 2005 No C 300, p.10) VAT exempt."

The shipment of gold outside the European Union cannot be carried out due to logistical reasons.  In such cases, the gold will be deposited at Securitas Aurum and made available for collection by the client.  The customer himself will then be responsible for the collection of the gold.

§ 4 Right to Revoke:

(1) How to revoke an order:

Each customer has the right to revoke his order or cancel his purchase agreement.  This has to be done in writing (letter or email) and addressed to Securitas Aurum.  The cancellation request has to be done within 2 weeks after having made his/her online order.  The revocation request has to be addressed to:

Securitas Aurum Ltd. 2B, Orpheos Street. 1070 Nicosia - Republic of Cyprus

Email: info@securitas-aurum.com

(2) Revocation Deadline

The revocation deadline begins on the day the client has made his/her order through the online shop of Securitas Aurum. In order to meet the cancellation period, it is necessary to send the cancellation request on time and within the stipulated revocation period of 14 days.

(3) Consequences of Revocation

In the event of a valid revocation request, the services received by both parties have to be returned and, should it be the case, also the derived benefits.  Should the customer not return the received services, or only partly or in a damaged state, the client will be obliged to compensate Securitas Aurum Ltd. for any damages incurred. Only then will Securitas Aurum commit itself to reimburse the deposits made by the client and which are subject to the pertinent revocation request. The charges for the bank transfer are to be paid by the revoking party. Consequently, this cost will be deducted from the reimbursement sum.

The internal administrative and processing costs are to be paid by Securitas Aurum.

 (4) Exclusion of the Right to Revoke

In the case of delivery of goods which are not suitable to be returned due to their character, for example: downloads, e-mail accounts, domains and sub domains (CSS & Premium CSS), the right to revoke is excluded.
