2.5. After the Referral Share has been allocated to You it will be subject to a settlement period of 3 days. You will only be entitled to sell the Referral Share upon expiry of the aforementioned 3-days settlement period.

No personal circumstances will be taken under consideration, and no shares will be acquired with an individual user in mind. We make no recommendation, nor we will facilitate in any way further acquisition of the same share as the Referral Share. If You receive more than one Referral Share, there is no guarantee that they will be of the same type. In case We have any difficulties (whether technical or not) providing you the Referral Share we reserve the right, upon our sole discretion, to provide you with the monetary equivalent of the Referral Share.
