  2. BASIS FOR THE PROVISION OF SERVICES
    2.1.

    2.3. The Company’s main business is the issuance of E-money and the provision of services closely related to the issuance of E-money. A description of the main characteristics of the Oro Pay Service is set out and accessible in Oro Pay website(s). Since the service is limited to E-money (or maintaining balances), which does not qualify as a deposit or an investment service in the sense of the Law, you are not protected by the Investor Compensation Fund (“ICF”) scheme for Clients of Banks provided in Cyprus.
    2.4. The Company enables you to make payments to and accept payments from third parties. The Company does not have control of nor assumes the liability or legality for the products or services that are paid for with our Service.

    2.7. When providing us with content or posting content (in each case for publication, whether on- or off-line) using the Services, you grant the Company a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sublicensable (through multiple tiers) right to exercise any and all copyright, publicity, trademarks, database rights and intellectual property rights you have in the content, in any media known now or in the future. Further, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, you waive your moral rights and promise not to assert such rights against the Company, its sublicensees or assignees.

    2.8. The official language of communication will be the same as the language used to communicate this Agreement to you. You agree that the methods of providing information to you include:
    i) The Oro Pay website;
    ii) Internet Bank;
    iii) Email to the email address you provided in your Account (to receive such email communication you need to ensure that you are online and that you email account is accessible);
    iv) By postal mail to the street address listed in your Account.
    Such notice shall be considered to be received by you within 24 hours of the time it is posted to the Oro Pay website(s), Internet Bank or emailed to you. If the notice is sent by mail, we will consider it to have been received by you three Business Days after it is sent. These time frames exclude notifications in relation to amendments to the Agreement. You may request a copy of any legally required disclosures (including this Agreement) from us and we will provide this to you in a form which allows you to store and reproduce the information and you may terminate your consent to receive required disclosures through electronic communications by contacting Oro Pay as described below. Oro Pay reserves the right to close your Account if you withdraw your consent to receive electronic communications.
    2.9. Notices to Oro Pay made in connection with this Agreement must be sent either:
  • By Internet Bank;
  • By post to Oro Pay’s head office addressed to Legal and Compliance: Agiou Athanasiou 9, Linopetra, Limassol 4102, Cyprus;
  • Via email to Client Support at support@OroPay.com where one of Oro Pay’s representatives will remit it to the Department handling matters such as yours, and where a responsible person will return with a response within 24 hours or the sooner possible from receipt of your email.
    2.10. Your Transaction History and Balance details can be accessed in the Internet Bank. Oro Pay will refrain from sending you periodic statements by either physical or electronic mail. With this you acknowledge and agree to review your transactions through your Account and the relevant transaction history section. If for any reason (such as restricted access) it is impossible to access your transaction history through your account, you may contact one of our representatives to assist you on the matter either by email at support@oropay.com or by phone at +(357) 25752100.
    2.11. You may not transfer or assign any rights or obligations you have under this Agreement without the Company’s prior written consent. Transferring your account to a third party is strictly prohibited. On the contrary Oro Pay has and reserves the right to transfer or assign any right or obligation under this Agreement (or the entirety of this Agreement) at any time without requiring your consent. Of course, this right does not prevent you from closing your account with Oro Pay and terminating this agreement as stipulated in the termination section below.
    2.12. This Agreement may be amended at any time by Oro Pay alone and may include changes in the terms and conditions as required by regulatory changes or as needed due to changes in the Service (additions or deletions), as well as changes to the charges and fees stated in the Schedule of Fees as posted online on Oro Pay’ website(s). Any amendment will be communicated to the Client via the Oro Pay website(s) or by email no later than 5 Business Days after any such change has been posted online as pending (changes will be posted online highlighted with yellow and with a reference to the date of proposed amendment with their status “as pending” for one month thereof before enter into effect for the Client to get notified – if not already notified via email- of such and have the opportunity to terminate the Agreement if opposes to any pending amendments). The time given for changes to enter into effect is one month following the posting of any such change online to Oro Pay website marked as “pending” or one month after the Client has been sent an email notifying them of such change (the “change notice”), except in cases where the amendments are required by the Law and have to take effect immediately. Notwithstanding any clause onto this Agreement or other Oro Pay Legal Agreements to the contrary, immediate will be any amendments necessary due to the enrichment of the Service and its delivery, or in cases where your rights and obligations are not adversely affected, always to the extent this is permitted by the law. We will not provide the Client with any notice of such immediate changes. During the one-month period following any notice, the Client will have the right –as it always reserves such right even without a reason / cause- to terminate the Agreement and close the account at any time. Should the Client refrain from taking any such action during the one month period and the period lapses, Oro Pay will consider it as an acceptance of the amendments and the Agreement will remain in effect. The fact that you may close your account free of charge and at any time does not preclude you from potential liabilities that may have incurred prior to the closing of the account and for which you may be responsible for. Refer to the relevant section on account closing for additional information.
  1. YOUR ACCOUNT
    3.1. Oro Pay account numbers are issued in IBAN format. Joined accounts or nominee accounts are prohibited and in opening an account with us the Client represents and warrants to us that he/she is the sole beneficiary of the account and that all actions taken in relation to the account are taken by the Client alone, unless the Client is a legal entity and the person(s) opening and operating the account, does so under the direction of the company that employs him/her/them. Unless the person is acting for the company that employs him/her/them, the new account must only be in the Client’s own name. This agreement applies only to Users who are Cyprus residents and other countries where the Service can be offered under Oro Pay cross border activities authorization. If you are a resident of another country, and your country requires different terms than those applicable through this Agreement you may access the relevant agreement from the country specific Oro Pay website(s) (if applicable).
    3.2. Oro Pay offers two account types namely Personal and Corporate. Users may have one Personal and one Corporate account. In certain cases, a User may be allowed to have additional accounts if certain conditions apply. In cases where multiple unverified accounts are held by a single User, Oro Pay will ask for additional verified information to confirm the common identity of the unverified accounts holder as well as any other additional information it deems fit to accurately ascertain the identity of the User. Any limits imposed by Oro Pay on accounts will apply cumulatively to such accounts and if such limits are exceeded, Oro Pay has the right to suspend the accounts until such information is provided to warrant to upgraded status. The primary use of a Corporate account is for its own operational purposes and should not be used for personal or family purposes. By accepting the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the User confirms that the account is established for the sole purpose of servicing company operations and that it will not be used for personal reasons except in rare cases.
    3.3. Opening account with an unverified status allows you to send electronic money (e-money), receive e-money, and/or withdraw money within certain limits. By going through the account opening process under a framework contract, and completing the electronic form of the Oro Pay website(s), you immediately obtain unverified status. To upgrade to verified status and increase your limit you must complete the following steps:
  • For Cyprus Personal account holders: Provide a scanned colored copy of your ID and a scanned copy of your utility bill that confirms the permanent residence address you provided during account opening, as well as provide a selfie picture [white background / passport dimensions] or video of yourself;
  • For Cyprus Business account holders: Provide financial statements for the preceding year and information on the Ultimate Beneficial Owner which includes ID/Passport and proof of permanent residence;
  • For other countries: Provide a scanned color copy of your passport and proof of permanent residence address (scanned copy of utility bill or bank confirmation).
    Oro Pay may, from time to time, make available to you other methods or procedures for you to become of verified status. Such methods will be provided on the Oro Pay website. By indicating you as verified, Oro Pay merely confirms your new status which neither represents, undertakes or guarantees that your verified status will result to completing a transaction.
    3.4. The Services may be applied for by the Customer in his own name or by the Customer in the name of legal entity. Minors shall only be issued an Account and e-Money after written consent by their legal guardian is provided, subject to the additional terms and conditions and upload, payment and withdrawal limits.
    3.5. You may only open an Account if it is legal to do so in your country of residence. By opening an Account you represent and warrant to us that your opening of an Account does not violate any laws or regulations applicable to you. You shall indemnify us against any losses we incur in connection with your breach of this section.
    3.6. All identifying information you provide during the signup process or any time thereafter, as determined from time to time by Us, must be accurate and truthful.
    3.7. You may only add payment instruments (such as bank accounts, credit cards or debit cards) to your Account if you are the named holder of that payment instrument. We take any violation of this requirement very seriously and will treat any attempt to add a payment instrument of which you are not the named holder as a fraudulent act.
    3.8. Oro Pay reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to provide you a Virtual IBAN. You are informed about provision of such IBAN via Internet Bank. Oro Pay maintains the right to recall the provided Virtual IBAN at any time. In such instances, all incoming payments directed to the recalled Virtual IBAN will be returned to the original sender.
  1. PROTECTION OF YOUR ACCOUNT
    4.1. You must take all reasonable steps to keep your Internet Bank password safe at all times and never disclose it to anyone. Our personnel will never ask you to provide your password to us or to a third party. Any message you receive or website you visit that asks for your password, other than the Oro Pay Website or an Oro Pay payment gateway on a merchant website, should be reported to us. If you are in doubt whether a website is genuine, you should contact us. It is advisable to change your password regularly (at least every three (3) to six (6) months) in order to reduce the risk of a security breach in relation to your Account. We also advise you not to choose a password that is easily guessed from information someone might know or gather about you or a password that has a meaning. You must never allow anyone to access your Account or watch you accessing the Internet Bank.
    4.2. If you have any indication or suspicion of your Account, Internet Bank login details, password or other security feature being lost, stolen, misappropriated, used without authorisation or otherwise compromised, you are advised to change your password. You must contact us without undue delay on becoming aware of any loss, theft, misappropriation or unauthorised use of your Account, Internet Bank login details, password or other security features. Any undue delay in notifying us may not only affect the security of your Account/Internet Bank, but may result in you being liable for any losses as a result. If you suspect that your Account/Internet bank was accessed by someone else, you should also contact the police and report the incident.
    4.3. You must take all reasonable care to ensure that your e-mail account(s) are secure and only accessed by you, as your e-mail address may be used to reset passwords or to communicate with you about the security of your Account/Internet Bank. In case any of the e-mail addresses registered with your Accounts are compromised, you should without undue delay after becoming aware of this contact us and also contact your e-mail service provider.
    4.4. Irrespective of whether you are using a public, a shared or your own computer to access the Internet Bank, you must always ensure that your login details are not stored by the browser or cached or otherwise recorded. You should never use any functionality that allows login details or passwords to be stored by the computer you are using.
    4.5. Additional products or services you use may have additional security requirements and you must familiarise yourself with those as notified to you.
  2. MONEY REMITTANCE
    5.1. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, you agree that Oro Pay will execute your instructed payment order by debiting your account and crediting the account of the person you are remitting the e-money to at Oro Pay on the same day. Where the recipient’s account is with another payment service provider the payment will be made as soon as the payment schemes available to Oro Pay allow, which is normally one business day from the date we received valid payment instruction from you. To facilitate the payment as indicated you need to:

For payments to merchants:
5.1.1. Log into your account with the merchant and select (click) the relevant button (“Continue”, “Proceed with Payment”, “Pay”, or any other word or phrase) at the merchant website, or checkout options that permit you to provide Oro Pay with payment instructions. You may also use alternative methods as they may be instructed to you from Oro Pay, from time to time, when you are in the process of submitting a payment instruction;
5.1.2. Complete all the required information (mandatory fields) in the relevant payment process as may be required by Oro Pay and/or the recipient of the e-money;
5.1.3. Make the payment order before 17:00 (Eastern European Time – UTC+2) on a business day. Payment orders given after this time will be considered as next business day orders.
For “Push” Payments:
5.1.4. Log into your Oro Pay account at the Oro Pay website and select the merchant/recipient you wish to make a push payment. Once you have selected the merchant/recipient and entered the required details, select the “Complete Payment” button/link that will permit you to provide us with your payment instruction. Depending on the recipient’s terms, payments may not be accepted immediately.
For Internal Payments:
5.1.5. Log into your Oro Pay account at the Oro Pay website and select the user recipient (using two-point identification from the options available to you) you wish to make a payment to. Once you have selected the user recipient and entered the required details, select the “Complete Payment” button/link that will permit you to provide us with your payment instruction. Payment to the recipient will be effected same day unless there is a reason to delay the payment for additional confirmations in which case the payment may be effected the next business day.
You may not cancel or revoke a payment instruction that has already been received by us, nor can you withdraw your consent to execute the transaction. A Client can only cancel a payment instruction in the case of a recurring payment and where the cancellation instruction is given at least by the end of the business day preceding the day the next recurring payment is due. Under no circumstance is Oro Pay obligated to execute a payment instruction if the Client does not have sufficient funds in his/her account. Oro Pay reserves the right not to conclude a payment transaction until it receives cleared funds (this also means, without limitation, that Oro Pay is not obliged to settle a refund transaction before having received funding for the original transaction).

For Virtual IBAN payments:
5.1.6. Outgoing payments may be executed using the virtual IBAN as your payment detail, subject to Oro Pay’s sole discretion.
5.1.7. Oro Pay is not obligated to execute a payment instruction unless the effected payment is made between Oro Pay users in the countries that are included in Oro Pay authorization and its cross-border services.
5.1.8. You may be asked to answer security questions or to complete other activities that we may reasonably require to ensure proper authorization of an upload transaction.
5.1.9. A periodic sending limit may be imposed on your Account either by requirement of the anti-money laundering laws and regulations, or at our reasonable discretion (for example, without limitation, to limit fraud or credit risk). In no event will such limits exceed the maximum allowable limits set by the money laundering law or any other law or directive that is relevant to Oro Pay’ jurisdiction of authorization. Any such limits set can be viewed in your account details.
5.1.10. There are at least two sending limits imposed on all accounts. To lift your initial sending limit, you must complete the steps set out below to obtain a verified status. The procedures by which Oro Pay will require you to change your status and lift your limits may change, from time to time and the relevant information regarding the new methodologies will be provided to you.
5.1.11. Transactions will only be executed when there is available balance in your Oro Pay account. To ensure that there is available balance, you need to review your account balance and if necessary, top up your account by drawing funds from one of your connected funding sources. Once the funds are received, Oro Pay will issue e-money and keep it as an e- money balance in your account, or transfer the e-money to the recipient, in each case according to your instructions and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
5.1.12. Oro Pay may limit the Funding Sources that will be available to you when funding your account. The reason Oro Pay may set such limitation is to manage the potential risk that may arise from the payment transaction. Any such limitation will be communicated to you before the payment transaction is executed, at which time you will be asked to provide an alternative funding source (for example use of another e-wallet as opposed to a credit/debit card). Although Oro Pay may allow you to proceed with the funding source that presented the risk initially, such action will be taken with your consent and may lead to a limitation of your rights to dispute resolution (you may be unable to contest the transaction due to funding source restrictions).
5.1.13. When using an e-wallet provider to top up (“Top Up”) your balance and make a payment transaction, you are requesting an electronic transfer from your e-wallet account to your Oro Pay account. For this transaction, you agree that:
(1) You need to instruct your e-wallet to make a payment to Oro Pay’s bank clients account. You will be contacting your e-wallet provider directly in the manner and method prescribed (by that provider) and instructing them to make a payment to Oro Pay’s bank client account providing the details as you would in any other e-wallet initiated payment.
5.1.14. When using a credit or debit card for TOP UP you are requesting a transfer from your credit/debit card issuer account to your Oro Pay account. For this transaction, you agree that:
(a) You shall use only the credit/debit card issued on your name;
(b) You need to instruct your issuing bank through our acquiring agent using a tokenization process to make a transfer to Oro Pay’s clients’ bank account. You will be contacting your credit/debit card issuer indirectly through the Oro Pay acquiring partner in the manner and method prescribed (by that provider) and instructing them to make a payment to Oro Pay’s clients’ bank account. The acquiring partner will use the Token Terminal program which is a form of tokenization of the credit/debit card information using cryptographic technology to ensure that your personal and card data is secure. Oro Pay will not store any of your credit/debit card details nor will it ask you to disclose these. Tokens are reusable and can be used for making and receiving payments until their expiration date (expiry date), which is linked to the issuer’s credit/debit card expiration date.
5.1.15. By sending a payment to a merchant you enable the merchant to process and complete the transaction. Despite your action and the immediate availability of the e-money to the merchant, a merchant may choose to delay processing the transaction for reasons unknown to Oro Pay. Should this event occur, you agree that Oro Pay may hold onto the payment amount, retaining it in your account but restricting its re-use, for a period of up to 10 working days after which your payment instruction will lapse and the transaction will be considered a non-transaction.
5.1.16. A recipient is not required to accept e-money sent to him/her despite being available. Oro Pay cannot control such action and you agree that you will not hold Oro Pay liable for any damages resulting from a {recipient's} decision not to accept a payment made through the Oro Pay service. To this end Oro Pay will either:
(a) Return any declined or refunded payment to your Oro Pay account; or
(b) Return any payment that remained unclaimed by the recipient to your account from the date you instructed Oro Pay to make the payment.
5.1.17. Third party initiated payments are not permitted.
5.1.18. The currencies the Client can transact in are currently Euros. Other currencies may be added to the current list and will be communicated to you through the Oro Pay website. Oro Pay has the right to add or remove currencies from the list of available currencies at its own discretion. Any balances left in removed currencies will be kept in that currency until they are withdrawn but will not be available for payment transactions. There may be some restrictions with regard to where you can send certain currencies.
5.1.19. There is no currency conversion option at this time. When you need to send money to a merchant who requests a currency that is different than the e-money currency balance of your account, you will need to deposit to your Oro Pay account the required currency. This can be performed by:
(a) Instructing your existing funding source (if applicable) to convert the payment amount in the required currency; or
(b) Instructing your existing funding source (if applicable) to remit the payment in the required currency if you maintain a balance with that funding source in the required currency; or
(c) Adding a new funding source that allows payments in the required currency and instructing it to remit the payment in the required currency.

  1. MONEY RECEIVING
    Anyone can start a payment process to remit funds to your Oro Pay account irrespective of having an Oro Pay account themselves or not. You – the Client – have the right to accept or decline receipt of the payment from the other party. All incoming payments, where the Virtual IBAN is used as payment detail, are automatically credited to your Oro Pay account.
    A periodic receipt limit may be imposed on your Account either by requirement of the anti- money laundering laws and regulations, or at our reasonable discretion (for example, without limitation, to limit fraud or credit risk). In no event will such limits exceed the maximum allowable limits set by the money laundering law or any other law or directive that is relevant to Oro Pay’ jurisdiction of authorization. Any such limits set can be viewed in your account details.
    6.1. There are at least two receipt limits imposed on all accounts. To lift your initial receipt limit, you must complete the steps set out below to obtain a verified status. The procedures by which Oro Pay will require you to change your status and lift your limits may change, from time to time and the relevant information regarding the new methodologies will be provided to you.
    6.2. Oro Pay is entitled to review all payment transactions and will do so in cases it deems to be of higher than normal risk. Such reviews will occur when Oro Pay has reasonable suspicion that the payment transaction may involve a restricted or prohibited activity, or any other reason that may be determined by Oro Pay from time to time. When a payment is reviewed, Oro Pay will execute the Client instruction to make the payment but hold the release of the e-money to the intended recipient. This action means that the Client’s account will be debited the amount but the recipient’s account will not be credited, resulting in a suspense balance. If the transaction involves a purchase, Oro Pay will notify the seller to hold off dispatching the item(s) until Oro Pay concludes the review and allows the transaction to be completed.
    6.3. Should the transaction be deemed as problematic, Oro Pay will reverse the payment and place the e-money back to the sender’s balance. Oro Pay will provide notices to you by email. A payment is subject to review for the sole purpose of minimizing Oro Pay’s risk as well as its Clients’ transaction dealings. Oro Pay does not intent with this process to review the involved parties’ business relations, their reputation and should not be construed as demeaning or discriminant in any way.
    6.4. The receipt of e-money is only concluded after the Client accepts it, at which point Oro Pay clears the balance in the account and makes it available for other payment or withdrawal transactions. Notifications from Oro Pay that you are the recipient of e-money do not constitute a confirmation that the balance has been cleared and has become available. You acknowledge and agree that a payment transaction is completed and received by you upon acceptance even if it becomes subject to a Reversal for reasons stated in this Agreement or its updates/amendments as it may be updated/amended from time to time.
    6.5. Invalidation of a transaction by means of reversal or cancelation, or suspension of a transaction does not release you from any liability towards Oro Pay and you will remain liable for any amount due to Oro Pay plus any Fees that relate to the payments.
    6.6. As a seller, you agree not to surcharge for the use of Oro Pay unless the applicable laws allow you to do so. Should you charge a client a surcharge fee, Oro Pay will be no party to such charge and you agree to inform the purchaser directly of the charge clearly stating that you as the seller and not Oro Pay is charging the surcharge. It is not Oro Pay’s responsibility to inform and where you fail to inform the purchaser of the surcharge details, Oro Pay will assume no responsibility and will have no liability towards any purchaser as a result of the omission. You further acknowledge that failure to disclose such surcharge to the purchaser when permitted, may constitute a criminal and/or civic offense.
    6.7. A recipient can receive funds in any currency allowed by Oro Pay irrespective of the currency maintained in the account at the time of the receipt for as long as the payment is accepted. In such instances, Oro Pay will credit your balance with the amount in the currency it was sent. Oro Pay does not offer currency conversion service at this time, and you acknowledge and agree that where you hold balances in multiple currencies, at time of withdrawal, your receiving funding source may cause you to convert the currency balances to the reference currency of the funding source’s account. This may lead to additional charges not relating to Oro Pay and its Service and for which Oro Pay is not responsible for. Contact your funding source directly to inquire about such potential charges and their currency conversion policy.
    6.8. Oro Pay is not responsible to determine any applicable taxes relating to your transaction, nor is it responsible to collect, report and remit any taxes arising from any transaction. You agree that it is your sole responsibility to determine the applicable taxes relating to a transaction and further to collect, report and remit tax balances arising from any transaction to the relevant tax authority.
  2. ACCOUNT BALANCES AND TRANSACTION INFORMATION
    A Client can check the balance of their account and their transaction history information by Internet bank at any time. Information regarding incoming and outgoing payments made using the Virtual IBAN are accessible in the Internet Bank, along with other transaction details.
    7.1. Through your account, you will be able to print a hard copy of the transaction history ledger or export it in CSV/PDF format. The transaction history details that are available to you online will extent to a 24-month period. Should you wish to receive a statement that includes a period further than the 24 months available online, you will need to contact one of our client representatives to provide you with an “Offline” one. Offline transaction statements will never extend beyond a 60-month period (five years) and you may be charged a fee for it. You will be informed of the potential fee prior to giving us your instructions.

7.2. A balance will always be shown even if the amount is zero. Positive balances will not be paid any interest since the balance is in e-money and the account is not considered a deposit account making it illegal to earn interest.
7.3. You agree that Oro Pay may settle any outstanding balances owed to it by using amounts from the balance you maintain in your Oro Pay account. Oro Pay will try to settle any amounts due to it by a Client in Euro. In the rare event that the Client will owe Oro Pay an amount and will not have a balance in the Euro account, Oro Pay may use a variety of methods to settle the balance. You agree that such potential methods may include:
(a) Deduction from e-money received into your account;
(b) Deduction from the amount requested for withdrawal;
(c) Use of amount in a different currency under your account. Should this method be used, you agree to be liable for any conversion costs.
Any balances that you owe to Oro Pay for more than 15 working days will automatically be deducted from any available balance in any currency you may hold in your account. Oro Pay has the right to convert that amount into Euro with the cost of such conversion be borne by you.
7.4. As security for any potential balances that a Client may owe to Oro Pay, the Client agrees to grant the Company with a first right or legal claim (a “lien”) on balances and proceeds in his account.
7.5. The currencies Oro Pay allows you to transact in have no peg to any other currency and their value fluctuates daily. Maintaining balances in more than one currency can be risky and may result in potential loss (or gain) that will be realized on the day you decide to withdraw your balance in a currency other than the currency in your account. Maintaining multiple currency balances for speculation (forex trading) is prohibited by Oro Pay. You agree not to take such action and you accept the risk nonetheless of any potential loss stemming from maintaining multiple currency balances.

  1. WITHDRAWAL / REDEEMING OF E-MONEY
    8.1. A withdrawal is effectively a request to redeem e-money in your account and convert them into cash money. Clients can instruct Oro Pay to withdraw all or part of their account balance in the currency the balance is maintained for as long as the funding source can accept payments denominated in the currency of your account. A withdrawal can only be made to an existing funding source that has been confirmed as your own. For withdrawals below the first limit (of unverified status) the “confirmation” is simply the fact that you have already used the funding source to fund your Oro Pay account. In case you have obtained a verified status and your limit has been extended, the confirmation must come in the form of proof that the funding source is verifiably yours. Confirmation of a verified status funding source must include information similar to those provided to Oro Pay to achieve verified status.
    8.2. A periodic receipt limit may be imposed on your Account either by requirement of the anti- money laundering laws and regulations, or at our reasonable discretion (for example, without limitation, to limit fraud or credit risk). In no event will such limits exceed the maximum allowable limits set by the money laundering law or any other law or directive that is relevant to Oro Pay’ jurisdiction of authorization. Any such limits set can be viewed in your account details.
    8.3. There are at least two receipt limits imposed on all accounts. In order to lift your initial withdrawal limit, you must complete the steps set out below to obtain a verified status. The procedures by which Oro Pay will require you to change your status and lift your limits may change, from time to time and the relevant information regarding the new methodologies will be provided to you.
    8.4. Oro Pay is entitled to review all withdrawal transactions and will do so in cases it deems to be of higher than normal risk. Such reviews will occur when Oro Pay has reasonable suspicion that the withdrawal transaction may involve a restricted or prohibited activity, or any other reason that may be determined by Oro Pay from time to time. When a withdrawal is reviewed, Oro Pay will hold the redemption and deem your withdrawal/redemption instruction as a future payment order. Once Oro Pay determines that there is no longer a risk in proceeding with the redemption, it will do so within the time specified in this Agreement. You agree that your withdrawal/redemption instruction for a restricted transaction becomes effective one work day after the restriction is lifted.

Subject to the conditions stated in relevant sections below, you can close your account by sending an email to accounts@oropay.com requesting the withdrawal of any available balances and the closing of the account.

By closing your account, you agree to forfeit any non-monetary funds such as bonuses, coupons and/or vouchers (if applicable). You further agree that any pending transactions will be cancelled and any instructions for recurring payments will be withdrawn.

All accounts with zero balance will be closed in which case you will be notified that your account has been closed and that the Agreement has been terminated. Any accounts with a balance that are dormant may remain active for a period of 6 months to allow the Client time to either reactivate the account or close it. Oro Pay will inform you that the account has been declared dormant and the options you have to avoid being charged with maintenance fees. During this period Oro Pay may charge a monthly maintenance fee as stipulated in Schedule of Fees posted online on Oro Pay’s website. If you do not respond by the end of the 6-month period, your account will be closed and any remaining balance will be send to your stated funding source in accordance with the information on record.

You are also expected to immediately inform Oro Pay of any erroneous transaction that may have taken place relating to your account, in order for Oro Pay to investigate the cause of the error and take remedial action as necessary. For as long as Oro Pay is content with the justifications provided in relation to the unauthorized use, Oro Pay will not hold you liable for the unauthorized transaction. It will however, exercise its legal rights and hold you fully liable when the Company deems that you tried to defraud by acting in deliberate fashion in granting access to a third person by willingly providing or “unintentionally” exposing your login information to that person. Oro Pay will also hold you responsible and liable when it evidently realizes that either with gross negligence, or intent, you fail to comply with the obligations stemming out of this Agreement and its terms and conditions.
    16.3. The most immediate way to contact Oro Pay is by reaching the Oro Pay Client Service representatives at the telephone number shown on the Oro Pay website(s), by completing and submitting the online form found on the Oro Pay website, or alternatively contacting one of its members by sending an email to support@OroPay.com with the subject heading “Erroneous transaction” or “Unauthorized Transaction”. Although all telephone incidents are recorded, Oro Pay requires you to also submit a written record of the incident providing Oro Pay with any information you may have in your possession and that would make the investigation process faster and the remedial action quicker. Written records can be in the form of an email addressed to the same address referenced in this section and with the same subject heading options. You are expected to reasonably assist Oro Pay and you agree that certain information you provide may be provided to a third party relevant to the case in hand always in accordance with the Oro Pay Privacy Policy.
    16.4. Oro Pay will review the reports submitted and revert with the investigation results within 15 working days from the day the notice is initially provided by the Client. If the initial notification is made by telephone, the notice day will be defined as the day the written notice was submitted to Oro Pay. Depending on the complexity of the investigation, Oro Pay may take up to an additional 3 months to further investigate the report before coming to a conclusion. Oro Pay will try to remedy any error caused by its actions almost immediately to enable its Client unobstructed use of the account.
    16.5. After the investigation is concluded and the results of the investigation are ready, they will be communicated to you in writing by generating a ticket in the Oro Pay system and sending it to you, and will include the result of the investigation and an explanation of the findings that led to the final result. In the event that Oro Pay provisionally treated a transaction as erroneous and credited your account with the relevant balance, and the investigation resulted in “no error”, Oro Pay will have the right to debit your account for the same amount as if the transaction was never reported as erroneous. Oro Pay Clients who reported an error can request copies of the material that was used for the investigation.
    16.6. The liability of any unauthorized transactions that evidence does not suggest that there has been any fraudulent, deliberate or gross negligent action or behavior by the Client, will fall on Oro Pay. In such cases the Client will receive full reimbursement of the amount relevant to the reported unauthorized transaction(s) from the Client’s account. Clients will be entitled to such reimbursement only if they report such unauthorized transaction incidents to Oro Pay within one calendar year from the date the first unauthorized transaction incident was executed. Where the reported incident demands further investigation, Oro Pay will follow the process described in relevant section above.
    16.7. Oro Pay Clients are entitled to a refund of the full amount of any authorized payment transaction whether the transaction was initiated through Oro Pay’s system, through a merchant’s website or other third party, provided that any conditions that make the Client eligible for such a refund are met.
    16.8. Oro Pay will rectify all errors that may originate from its system. Errors are normally discovered during the fund reconciliation process. For instances where your account was erroneously credited with less money than you were entitled, Oro Pay will credit the difference in your account. If the opposite occurs and your account is credited with more money than it should, Oro Pay will debit your account for the difference. Oro Pay will be liable to refund any transaction that has resulted in either not being of correct amount or not being executed in time and for any losses or damages directly resulting from this failure unless:
    16.8.1. You did not have sufficient funds in your account to conclude the transaction and the cause of this insufficiency was not Oro Pay;
    16.8.2. You tried to execute the transactions at a time that it was known to users that the Oro Pay system was not properly functioning, either due to maintenance or unresolved technical issues; or
    16.8.3. Because of circumstances beyond Oro Pay’s control (such as acts of God or other technical issues such as online connectivity) the transaction could not be properly executed despite the Company’s best endeavors to the contrary.
    16.9. Notwithstanding any other term of this Agreement, Oro Pay will not be liable for any such incomplete/failed transactions unless a Client reports such incomplete/failed transaction to Oro Pay within one calendar year from the date he/she became aware of the incomplete/failed transaction and reported it to Oro Pay.
