OPENING YOUR ACCOUNT

Your Account will be opened on your behalf by us in partnership with Payrnet Limited (“Payrnet”) – an FCA (Financial Conduct Authority ) approved financial platform provider. You may only hold an Account so long as you remain an approved client of ours.

USING THE ACCOUNT

  1. Your Account can receive bank transfers and other payment types as added and notified to you by us from time to time. Subject to paragraph (iii), we will credit your account when we receive the funds which could be up to three Business Days after the payment being instructed, depending on how the payment was sent.
  2. Your Account can also receive internal transfers from other accounts owned or controlled by us, which apply instantly.
  3. An incoming payment will not be credited to your Account if:
    1. the Account has reached the Account Maximum Balance or Account Limits; or
    2. the Account is inactive or blocked or terminated; or
    3. the sender has provided incorrect/invalid Account Details for your Account; or
    4. we suspect the payment to be fraudulent.
  4. If we are unable to credit your Account for any of the reasons in paragraph (iii) then the funds may be sent back to the sender without prior notification to you.
  5. Your Account will be configured and operated by us. You agree that we take instructions from you regarding the operation of your Account, including the creation of beneficiaries and instruction of payments, on your behalf. If you disagree with any actions taken by us these should be discussed with us, directly.
  6. Your Account can make payments out to external bank accounts via Faster Payments and other methods as added and notified to you by us from time to time.
  7. A Transaction is deemed to be authorized by you when you enter the security information in the app to confirm that a Transaction is authorized. Once the Transaction is confirmed, we cannot revoke the Transaction save for in those circumstances set out in paragraph (viii) below.
  8. The following Transactions may be withdrawn:
    • Any Transaction which is agreed to take place on a date later than the date you authorized it if notice is given no later than close of business on the business day before the Transaction was due to take place; and/or
    • Transactions due to take place on a future date.
  9. If we refuse to execute a payment order to or to initiate a Transaction, we will, without undue delay and provided we are legally permitted to do so, notify you of the refusal. If possible, we will provide the reasons for the refusal and where it is possible to provide reasons for the refusal and those reasons relate to factual matters, the procedure of rectifying any factual errors that led to the refusal.
  10. The Available Balance on your Account will not earn any interest.
  11. You can check the balance and transaction history of your Account at any time via the interface provided to you by us or our Online Portal if you have relevant access details.
  12. You will be provided with a monthly statement by us (using the details we have associated with your Account).

ACCOUNT LIMITS

Limits may apply to the maximum value of an individual payment Transaction, the maximum aggregate value of all payment Transactions made from your Account in a particular time period e.g. during any one Business Day and the maximum number of payment Transactions made from your Account over a particular timeframe. ‎

The limits that apply to your Account will be communicated to you during the Account set-up process. These limits may also change over time based on your Account usage; any such change will be communicated to you. You can check the limits at any time by checking your profile page within the app. Any payment Transaction request which exceeds such limits will be rejected.

To manage our risk, particularly with respect to money laundering, fraud or security concerns, we also apply internal controls, including limits, to certain types of payment. We change these as necessary but for security purposes, we do not disclose them.

CLOSING YOUR ACCOUNT

  1. You may close your Account by contacting Customer Services.
  2. The Account will be closed if we get the instructs from you to close your Account.
  3. Any Available Balance remaining on the Account after Account closure will be transferred to your nominated bank account via Faster Payments. If for any reason this is not possible, such Available Balance will remain yours for a period of six years from the date of Account closure. Within this period, you may at any time request a refund by contacting Customer Services. You will not have any access to your Account, and we will not return any funds remaining on the Account after six years from the date of Account closure and this Agreement will terminate.

YOUR LIABILITY AND AUTHORISATIONS

  1. You are responsible for understanding and complying with the Agreement including these Terms and Conditions.
  2. We may restrict or refuse to authorise any use of your Account if using your Account is causing or could cause a breach of these Terms and Conditions or if we have reasonable grounds for suspecting that you or a third party has committed or is about to commit a crime or other abuse in connection with your Account.
  3. You or the Account Manager must not:
    • allow another person to use security information related to the Account,

    • disclose passwords or any security information, or otherwise make them available to any other person, whether verbally or by entering them in a way that allows them to be observed by others.
  4. You will be liable for all transactions that take place as a result of you or the Account Manager acting fraudulently or failing to comply with these Terms and Conditions with intent or gross negligence. Any such Transactions and any fees and charges relating to such Transactions will be deducted from the Available Balance on your Account.
  5. You will be liable for all transactions that you or any other Account Manager makes on your behalf as per this Agreement, along with those made by a TPP authorised by you to initiate a Transaction.

DISPUTES AND INCORRECT TRANSACTIONS

  1. If you have a reason to believe that a Transaction on your Account was unauthorised or was made incorrectly, you must inform us immediately by contacting Customer Services, but in any event within 13 months of the date of the relevant Transaction.
  2. If you dispute a Transaction:
  3. (i) subject to (ii) and (iii) we will immediately refund the amount to your Account to the position it would have been in if the unauthorised Transaction had not taken place. We will have no further liability to you. If we subsequently discover that you were not entitled to a refund, we shall treat the refund as a mistake and be entitled to reapply the Transaction.
  4. If there are reasonable grounds for thinking that you may not be entitled to a refund (based on the evidence available to us at the time you report the unauthorised Transaction), we may investigate before giving you a refund and we will provide you with our supporting evidence if we believe you are not entitled to the refund.
  5. If the Transaction was initiated through a TPP, it is for the TPP to prove that the Transaction was authenticated, accurately recorded and not affected by a technical breakdown or other deficiency linked to the TPP’s payment initiation service.
  6. If an incorrect Transaction is paid into your Account that should not have, we will where possible, immediately send the funds back to the bank acting for the person from whose account the transaction was made. In such circumstance, you agree to return the funds to us and provide such assistance that we require in recovering the amount from you. If we cannot recover the funds, we are required to provide sufficient details about you and the incorrect payment to the bank or institution that sent the payment to enable them to recover the funds.
  7. You will be liable for all transactions made from your Account if you have acted fraudulently.

VARIATION

  1. We may change these Terms and Conditions by providing you with at least two months’ prior notice by e-mail (provided you have supplied us with an up-to-date e-mail address).
  2. If you do not agree with the changes to the Terms and Conditions, you may at any time within the two months’ notice period notify us and these Terms and Conditions will be terminated, and your Account closed. If you do not notify us to the contrary during this period, then you will be deemed to have accepted the change and it will apply to you when it comes into force.
  3. If any part of these Terms and Conditions are inconsistent with any legal requirements, then we will not rely on that part but treat it as if it did reflect the relevant legal requirement. If we need to make operational changes before, we can fully comply with the new regulatory requirement, we will make those changes as soon as reasonably practical.

TERMINATION OR SUSPENSION

  1. We can terminate your account at any time if we give you two months’ notice and transfer any Available Balance at the time to your nominated bank account without a charge, or
  2. We can suspend or terminate your Account at any time with immediate effect (and until your default has been remedied or the Agreement terminated) without any prior notice to you if:
    • we discover any of the Information that we hold for you is materially incorrect; or
    • if we have reason to believe that you, the Account Manager or a third party has committed or is about to commit a crime or other abuse (including fraud) in connection with your Account; or
    • if you have reached your Account Limit; or
    • you or the Account Manager have breached these Terms and Conditions.
