3.4 Subject to section 10, the electronic money held on your E-money Account does not expire, but it will not earn any interest.

3.5 You have the right to withdraw funds from your E-money Account at any time. However, you may be required to provide additional due diligence documents as per our compliance procedures beforehand. There is no minimum withdrawal amount but the funds on your E-money Account must be sufficient to cover any applicable withdrawal fee.

3.6 Electronic money accounts are not bank accounts. In the unlikely event that we become insolvent, you may lose the electronic money held in your E-money Account. However, we strictly adhere to the legal requirements under the E-money Directive and the E-money Law, which are designed to ensure the safety and liquidity of funds deposited in electronic money accounts.

3.7 The electronic money on an E-money Account belongs to the person or the legal entity which is registered as the E-money Account holder.

After the expiry of this period you will not be able to access your E-money Account but you may withdraw any remaining funds by contacting the Helpdesk and requesting that the funds are sent to you in a manner that is reasonably acceptable for us. You may do so at any point in time for a period of one year from the date of closure of your E-money Account, but we suggest that you withdraw your remaining funds as soon as possible as they will not earn any interest while being deposited in your E-money Account.

Otherwise, you may not charge back any funding transaction or allow a chargeback of any funding transaction for reasons for which we are not responsible including (but not limited to) disputes with Merchants for non-delivery of goods or services or insufficient balance on the payment instrument account. We reserve the right to charge you fees and expenses we incur in connection with such chargeback and any action undertaken to challenge the same.

11.4 If a chargeback or reversal of a funding transaction results in a negative balance in your E-money Account, you will be required to repay such negative balance by sufficiently funding your E-money Account. Failure to do so is a breach of these Terms of Use. Repayment of the negative balance is due immediately without notice. We reserve the right, at any time, to send you reminders or to take other debt collection measures including but not limited to mandating a debt collection agency or solicitors or to pursue the claim in court. We reserve the right to charge you the expenses we reasonably incur in connection with any debt collection or enforcement efforts.

a) Where the loss, theft or misappropriation of the payment instrument was not detectable to you prior to a payment, except where you have acted fraudulently.

b) Where the loss was caused by acts or lack of action of an employee, agent or branch of a payment service provider or of an entity to which its activities were outsourced.

21.1.1 Where the unauthorised payment arises from your failure to keep the personalised security features of your E-money Account or Payment Account safe in accordance with section 10 in which case you shall remain liable for all the losses incurred.

21.1.2 If you fail to notify us without undue delay of any loss of your Security Information or Payment Card or other event that could reasonably be expected to have compromised the security of your E-money Account or Payment Card after you have gained knowledge of such event in which case you shall remain liable for all losses incurred up to your notification to us.

21.1.3 In case the transaction was unauthorised but you have compromised the security of your E-money Account or Payment Card resulting from you acting fraudulently with intent or gross negligence or failing to fulfil one or more of your obligations in accordance with this Terms and Conditions, which govern the issue and use of the Payment Account, in which case you shall be solely liable for all losses.
