3.10. The Card shall remain valid until the Expiry Date. If you require a replacement Card, please contact us using our contact details set out in Clause 33. Please note that an additional fee may be charged for a replacement Card – please refer to Clause 18 for more information.

4. KYC

4.1. We require evidence of who you are and your address for our KYC procedures. We may ask the Cardholder or the Business to provide some documentary evidence to prove this and/or we may carry out checks on you electronically.

4.2. The files of credit reference agencies may be searched to assist in the identity verification process. This is not a credit search and does not have a detrimental effect on an individual’s credit score/rating or influence an individual’s ability to obtain or raise credit. The credit reference agency will keep a record of any search and this will show as a ‘soft footprint’ on your credit record to alert you that a search was conducted.

5. FUNDS IN THE ACCOUNT

5.1. Only the Business can add money to the Account. The Cardholder will not be able to add money to the Account.

5.2. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate the right add money to the Account at any time without notice.

5.3. The Business solely owns the funds representing the Available Balance and is the beneficial owner of these funds.

6. SERVICE LIMITS

6.1. Transactions may be restricted by Card type, individual usage patterns and payment risk profiles. For anti-money laundering and anti-fraud reasons, we reserve our right to change particular payment restrictions (including from those published or included herein) without notice and to the extent required to meet our regulatory obligations.

7. TRANSACTIONS

7.1. The Card is an e-money product and as such it is not covered by the Deposit Compensation Scheme. You may only use the Card for lawful Transactions.

7.2. We will be entitled to assume that a Transaction has been Authorised by you where you:

  • 7.2.1. allow a Merchant to swipe the magnetic strip of the Card and the corresponding sales slip is signed;
  • 7.2.2. insert the Card into a chip & PIN device and the correct PIN is entered;
  • 7.2.3. provide relevant information to the Merchant that allows the Merchant to process the Transaction, for example, providing the Merchant with the PAN, the Expiry Date and the CVV2 in the case of an internet or other non-face-to-face Transaction;
  • 7.2.4. provide relevant information to the payment initiation service provider that allows the payment initiation service provider to process the Transaction; or
  • 7.2.5. the Card is tapped against a “contactless” enabled reader and is accepted by such reader.

7.3. The Cardholder should only use the Card as permitted by the Business. If the Cardholder uses the Card, we are entitled to presume that the Cardholder has the Business’ permission to spend the Available Balance until notified to the contrary by the Business.

7.4. You acknowledge the correctness of the amount of each Transaction which you authorise.

7.5. Once you have authorised a Transaction, the Transaction cannot be stopped or revoked. You may in certain circumstances be entitled to a refund in accordance with this Agreement.

7.6. On receipt of notification of your authorisation of a Transaction and the Transaction payment order from the Merchant and/or authorised bank, normally we will deduct the value of the Transaction, plus any applicable fees and charges, from the available funds in the Account. We will execute the Transaction by crediting the account of the Merchant’s or ATM operator’s or bank’s (as applicable) payment service provider by the end of the next Business Day following the notification. If the notification is received on a non-Business Day or after 4:30 pm on a Business Day, it will be deemed received on the next Business Day.

7.7. We are not liable if, for any reason, the affiliated Merchants or authorised banks do not accept the Card, or accept it only partly, nor are we liable in the case of late delivery of, or failure to deliver, goods or services. In the event of disputes or complaints of any kind concerning goods or services, or the exercise of any right in this connection, you should contact the affiliated Merchant and/or authorised ban and/or ATM operator.

7.8. It is your responsibility to ensure that there is sufficient Available Balance to enter into each Transaction in your Account, to cover any spend, Card including value added tax and any other taxes, charges and Fees that are applicable. Should the Account at any time and for any reason have a negative balance, you shall repay the excess amount immediately and in full.

7.9. For Card usage conducted in a Contactless manner, you will need to have made at least one chip and PIN Transaction as described in Clause 7.2.2 to activate the contactless part of the chip before doing so. Failing to do so will lead to a declined transaction. When using your Card for contactless transactions, the contactless limit in effect at the time of the transaction will apply without using the PIN. This limit is regulated by VISA and may vary from time to time.

7.10. For Card usage conducted in other currencies (other than the currency of the Card), you shall accept the exchange rate used by Visa, which can be found https://www.visa.co.uk/support/consumer/travel-support/exchange-rate-calculator.html. Any changes in exchange rates may be applied immediately and without notice. The exchange rate, where applicable to a Transaction, will be shown in the e-statement. Please be careful when opting to use a Merchant’s, bank’s or ATM operator’s exchange rates as they are often less competitive that the card scheme’s exchange rate.

7.11. The maximum amount you may withdraw in cash shall be subject to a daily limit, irrespective of the available funds in the Account. We may charge a fee for withdrawal of cash. Some ATMs may charge an additional fee, which is not included in the Fees Schedule, however, will apply on top of the fees set out in the Fees Schedule.

7.12. WAMO and Payrnet have the right to review and change the spending limits on the Card at any time. You will be notified of any such changes through our Platform.

8. SUSPENSION, RESTRICTIONS OR NON-EXECUTION OF THE CARD AND/OR THE ACCOUNT

8.1. We may at any time suspend, restrict or terminate the Card and/or the Account, refuse to issue or replace a Card or refuse to authorise a Transaction for reasons relating to the following:

  • 8.1.1. if we have reasonable grounds to believe that the Card is being in a way which is not approved by the Business;
  • 8.1.2. if we have reasonable grounds to believe that the security of the Card has been compromised or suspect that the Card is being used in an unauthorised or fraudulent manner;
  • 8.1.3. if there is insufficient Available Balance in the Account at the time of a Transaction to cover the amount of the Transaction and any applicable Fees;
  • 8.1.4. if there is an outstanding Shortfall in the Account;
  • 8.1.5. if we have reasonable grounds to believe that you are acting in breach of this Agreement;
  • 8.1.6. if we have reasonable grounds to believe that a Transaction is potentially suspicious or illegal (for example, if we believe that a - ---Transaction is being made fraudulently) or because of errors, failures (whether mechanical or otherwise) or refusals by Merchants, payment -processors or payment schemes processing Transactions; or
  • 8.1.7. if we need to do so in order to comply with the law.

8.2. If we do this, we will inform you of the action taken and its reasons in advance or, if that is not possible, immediately after, unless to do so would compromise reasonable security measures or be otherwise unlawful. We will reactivate the Account and where appropriate issue you with a replacement Card if after further investigations we reasonably believe that the reasons for the action no longer apply. Where the refusal is reasonably justified, we may charge you a fee when we notify you that your payment request has been refused.

8.3. The Business will remain responsible to Payrnet for the use of the Card. Your ability to use or access the Card may occasionally be interrupted, for example, if we need to carry out maintenance on our systems. Please contact us using the contact details set out in Clause 33 to notify us of any problems you are experiencing using the Card or Account and we will endeavour to resolve any problem.

9. ACCESS TO INFORMATION ON TRANSACTIONS AND AVAILABLE FUNDS IN THE ACCOUNT

  • 9.1.3. the currency in which your Card is debited;

10.4. We recommend that you check your Available Balance in your Account regularly on our Platform. You will be provided with your Available Balance and an e-statement of recent Transactions on the Account. We also recommend and instruct you to go thoroughly over all the Transactions on a regular basis on our Platform.

10.5. The Business will be liable for all losses, including any related fees and charges, for any unauthorised Transaction if we can show that you have:

  • 10.5.1. acted fraudulently; or
  • 10.5.2. failed with intent or gross negligence to use and keep safe the Card, Account or PIN in accordance with this Agreement.

10.6.

10.10. The Business agrees to indemnify and hold us harmless from and against all reasonable costs of any legal action taken to successfully enforce this Agreement arising out of a material breach of any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement by you or by your fraudulent conduct.

11. CANCELLING THE CARD AND TERMINATING THE AGREEMENT

11.1. If you wish to terminate this Agreement at any time, you must request cancellation or termination by contacting us using the contact details set out in Clause 33 informing us of your wish to terminate. The Agreement also terminates upon the Expiration Date subject to Clause 12.

11.2. Once we have received all the necessary information from you and we have completed and are satisfied with the outcome of applicable anti-money laundering, fraud and other illegal activity checks (including KYC), and once all Transactions and applicable fees and charges have been processed, we will send any Available Balance to the Business’s designated payment or bank account less any fees and charges payable to us, provided that no law, regulation, law enforcement agency, court or regulatory authority requires us to withhold the Available Balance. If we are not able to send the Available Balance for whatever reason, it will be safeguarded pursuant to Clause 33 for a maximum period of twenty (20) years, after which time it will become our property. A Fee will be charged during this period until either the Available Balance is sent to the Business or it is exhausted. The Available Balance will be sent as soon as it is possible to do so.

11.3. A Fee may be charged for cancellation (see Clause 18 below) unless you have arranged to transfer any unused funds to another Card managed by us for the Business.

If, following distribution of the Available Balance to the Business, any further Transactions are found to have been made or charges or Fees incurred using the Card or we receive a reversal of any prior Transaction, we will notify the Business of the amount and the Business must immediately repay us such amount on demand as a debt.

12.1. The funds on the Account will no longer be usable following the Expiry Date of the most recent Card that was issued under the Account until a replacement Card is issued.

12.2. The Card and this Agreement will terminate on the Expiry Date unless you are issued a renewal Card prior to the Expiry Date. You may not use the expired Card after the Expiry Date.

12.3. We will have the right to set-off, transfer, or apply part or all of the Available Balance to satisfy all or any liabilities and fees owed to us by the Business that have not been paid or satisfied when due.

12.4. Authorisation will be requested for a Transaction at the time of the Transaction. In the unlikely event, for any reason whatsoever, a Transaction is completed when there are insufficient funds on the Account for that Transaction which results in a Shortfall, the Shortfall will be repaid by the Business unless it is due to:

  • 12.4.1. an error on the part of the Merchant to which the Card was provided by you as the means of payment; or
  • 12.4.2. an error on the part of Payrnet.

12.5. Should the Business not repay this amount immediately after receiving an invoice or notification from us, we reserve the right to take all steps necessary, including legal action, to recover any monies outstanding.

14. LOST AND STOLEN CARD AND THE RIGHT TO A REFUND FOR UNAUTHORISED TRANSACTIONS

14.1. If you know or suspect that the Card is lost or stolen, or that the PIN code is known to an unauthorised person, or if you think a Transaction has been unauthorised, you must tell us without undue delay by contacting us using our contact details as set out in Clause 33 of this Agreement.

14.2. A Transaction will be considered to be unauthorised if you have not given your consent for the Transaction to be made by Authorising it. In order for any unauthorised Transaction amount to be refunded to the Account, you must report the Transaction without undue delay upon becoming aware of it. A refund cannot be made for any unauthorised Transaction reported after 30 days have passed following the debit date of the Transaction.

14.3. Despite the possible thirty (30) day’s refund period, a refund cannot be made for an unauthorised Transaction if the Transaction was correctly displayed in the Account activity online and you failed to inform us about the Transaction being unauthorised without undue delay upon seeing the Transaction in the Account activity online. In this respect we urge you to check the Account activity online on a regular basis and review the Transactions carefully.

14.4. When you contact us, you will be asked to provide us with the Card’s number where possible and some other identifying details. If there is an Available Balance remaining in the Account, we will replace the Card for the Account. Alternatively, the Available Balance can be redeemed to the Business. If we replace the Card, the Card will be delivered to the registered address subject to possible Fees.

14.5. We will refund as soon as possible, and no later than by the end of the day on which the unauthorised Transaction is reported by you, the full amount of any unauthorised Transaction reported by you, including any associated Fees and charges, provided you notify us of the Transaction in accordance with this Agreement except that:

  • 14.5.1. we will refund at the beginning of the next Business Day any unauthorised Transactions reported on a day that is not a Business Day or reported after 4:30 pm on a Business Day;
  • 14.5.2. if there is evidence that you acted fraudulently or have with intent or gross negligence failed to comply with the Agreement in relation to the use of the Card and safety of the Card’s security details, we will first carry out a prompt investigation to determine whether the Transaction was Authorised by you and will only refund if the investigation shows that the Transaction was not Authorised by you; and
  • 14.5.3. if the Card was lost or stolen or you have failed to keep your PIN or other security details safe from misappropriation, the Business will be liable for losses up to a maximum of €35 (or equivalent in another currency) per instance of loss, theft or misappropriation.

14.6. The Business will be liable for all losses incurred in respect of an unauthorised Transaction where you have acted fraudulently or have with intent or gross negligence failed to comply with the Agreement in relation to the use of the Card and safety of its security features.

14.7. Except where you have acted fraudulently the Business will not be liable for any losses incurred in respect of an unauthorised Transaction arising after you notify us of the Transaction in accordance with the Agreement. The Business is not liable for any losses that occur where the Card has been used in a ‘card not present’ environment except where you have acted fraudulently or with intent or gross negligence.

14.8. If there is evidence that you checked the online Account and did not notify us of the unauthorised Transaction without undue delay, we may not refund the Account.

14.9. We reserve the right to investigate any disputed Transaction or misuse of the Card before and after a refund. In order to do so, we may need more information and assistance from you, and you are required to reasonably cooperate with any investigation by us or any law enforcement agency or other competent authority. If we make a refund following the claim and subsequently establish that the conditions for the refund have not been met, we may deduct it from the Available Balance after notifying you. If there is no sufficient Available Balance, the Business must repay us the amount immediately on demand.

15.7. The above exclusions and limitations set out in this Clause 15 will apply to any liability of our affiliates, such as Visa or other suppliers, contractors, agents or distributors and any of their respective affiliates (if any), to you, which may arise in connection with this Agreement.

16.4.

In this respect we urge you to check the Account activity online on a regular basis and review the Transactions carefully.

16.5. As soon as practicable after you have notified us of a disputed Transaction in accordance with this Agreement, you must confirm the disputed Transaction in writing by email or by post, setting out full details of the Transaction and your reason for disputing it.

27. PROTECTION OF FUNDS

27.1. We ensure that once we have received the funds they are deposited in a secure account, specifically for the purpose of redeeming Transactions made by the Card. In the event that we become insolvent, funds against which Payrnet has already issued electronic money are protected against the claims made by creditors.

28. THIRD PARTY PAYMENT SERVICE PROVIDERS

28.1. This Clause 29 applies when you use the services of an AISP or a PISP.

28.2. We may deny an AISP or PISP access to the Account for reasonably justified and duly evidenced reasons relating to unauthorised or fraudulent access to the Account by that AISP or PISP, including the unauthorised or fraudulent initiation of a Transaction. If we do deny access in this way, we will notify you of the denial and the reason for the denial in advance if possible, or immediately after the denial of access, unless to do so would compromise reasonably justified security reasons or is unlawful. We will allow AISP or PISP access to the Account once the reasons for denying access no longer apply.

29. DELAY IN ENFORCEMENT OF THIS AGREEMENT

29.1. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under this Agreement, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this Agreement, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you do not pay us on time and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the services, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
