• there being sufficient funds in your Account;

• where applicable, the terms and conditions of the provider of the ATM or relevant financial institution (in addition to these Terms and Conditions).

a. at restaurants You may be required to have a maximum of 20% more on Your Card than the value of the bill to allow for any service charge added by the restaurant;
b. at “pay at pump” petrol pumps (if applicable) You may be required to have an amount equal to the maximum Transaction value permitted at the pump in Your Card Account.
The merchant will be required to tell you the estimated amount that will be blocked in Your Card Account and seek Your consent.
This means that some of the funds on Your Account may be blocked until the Merchant has settled the actual Transaction amount and accordingly, You will not be able to spend this estimated sum during this period. We will release the blocked funds without undue delay on becoming aware of the amount of the Transaction and in any event will unblock the funds immediately after receipt of the settlement request from the merchant.

Otherwise, you may not Chargeback any Upload or allow Chargeback of any Upload 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 method 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. We may also charge you a Chargeback fee of 25 GBP.
10.2 Without limiting our rights or remedies, if you do charge back, cancel, reverse or de-authorise a payment in such circumstances, you are responsible for refunding the payment to us. We may, at our discretion, recover the amount by reducing your Account balance, re-charging your credit card or bank account for the amount or otherwise collecting such amount from you.
10.3 If a negative balance is created in your Account (e.g. due to a chargeback, reversal of an Upload, or a Transaction is processed for a larger amount than the amount of available funds in your Account) or if you cause your Account to go into a negative balance for any other reason, you will be required to repay such negative balance by uploading sufficient funds into your Account to bring it back to at least a zero balance. Your failure to do so is a breach of these Terms and Conditions. You agree to pay us the outstanding amount immediately on demand. We reserve the right to automatically debit such outstanding amount from any Uploads you subsequently make to your Account. We shall be entitled to charge you for any reasonable expenses we incur as a result of any negative balance on your Account.

You must notify us of any dispute within 60 days of the purchase and the chargeback will only be applied to your account if successfully secured from the Merchant through the relevant payment services.

This includes ensuring the ongoing security of your Account ID Information and your personal computer device for accessing the Internet.

It is your responsibility to keep your login and password safe and you must not give it to anyone else to use.

This means that when you receive your PIN you must memorise it and destroy or keep confidential the letter containing details of the PIN. You must keep your PIN secret at all times.

You must contact the Customer Contact Centre without undue delay on becoming aware of any loss, theft, misappropriation or unauthorised use of your Card or Account ID information. Any undue delay in notifying us may not only affect the security of your Account but may result in you being liable for any losses as a result where your failure to notify us is intentional or grossly negligent. If you suspect that your Account was accessed by someone else, you should also contact the relevant authorities such as the police and report the incident. If you forget your PIN you can retrieve the details by logging into your Account. It is important you keep your Account details safe and secure as it provides access to your virtual cards and physical Card PINs. If you forgot your Account details, you will be able to recover them from the system.
13.4 We may suspend your Card and / or your Account or otherwise restrict its functionality on reasonable grounds relating to the security of the Card or the Account or any of their security features or if we reasonably suspect that an unauthorised or fraudulent use of your Card or Account has occurred or that any of its security features have been compromised. We will notify you of any suspension or restriction and of the reasons for such suspension or restriction in advance or, where we are unable to do so, immediately after the suspension or restriction has been imposed, unless notifying you would be unlawful or compromise our reasonable security interests. We will lift the suspension and/or the restriction as soon as practicable after the reasons for the suspension and/or restriction have ceased to exist, and/or after you provided enough comfort.
13.5 If we think your Card or your Account is at risk of fraud or a security threat, we will use the fastest and most secure way of contacting you using the details you have provided to share our guidance as per the next steps to follow to mitigate such risk.

17. FRAUD PREVENTION
Guavapay takes fraud very seriously and will always endeavour to mitigate the risk of fraud to the best of its capabilities.
You are made aware that criminals are experts at impersonating people, organisations and various authorities, including the police. This could be done online, via email or through telephone calls. Guavapay would like to highlight some of the ways You can avoid becoming victim of frauds.
17.1 Steps taken by Guavapay to protect You
Checks on Transactions in and out of your Account is part of Guavapay’s prevention measures.
Guavapay may take whatever action is considered appropriate to meet any of its obligations, either in the UK or elsewhere in the world relating to the prevention of fraud, crime, money laundering or terrorist activity and to the provision of financial and other services to persons who may be subject to sanctions.
This may include, but is not limited to, investigating and intercepting Payments in and out of your Account and investigating the intended payer or payee or source of funds. Checks to identify and verify identities of Account holders and connected persons, as well as screens for financial embargoes or other sanctions are also part of Guavapay’s fraud prevention process. Additionally, cards activities are closely monitored.
Carrying out the verifications mentioned above may delay the processing of payment instructions or the receipt of cleared funds, but where practicable and permitted, You shall be advised of the reasons for any delay and shall be kept updated.
Guavapay may decline to process a Transaction into or from your Account, where it is reasonably believed that such Transaction is unlawful.
In circumstances where a payment is made into an Account and Guavapay, the paying Bank or a banking partner know or suspect that it was made fraudulently or as a result of fraud, Guavapay may:
i. refuse to process the Transaction relation to the recipient Account, including an instruction by You to pay the money away from your Account; and/or
ii. take the money back out of your Account without asking You and pay it back to the sender, paying bank or relevant banking partner.
Without prejudice to the generality of clause 18, Guavapay shall not be responsible to You or any third party for any loss, expense, costs, damage or other liability suffered as a result of any delay to or rejection of the processing of a Transaction further to Guavapay’s fraud prevention measures set out above, or as a result of the payment back of any money known or suspected to have been paid in an Account fraudulently or as a result of a fraud.
17.2 What You can do to protect yourself
We advise you to:
- not transfer money to an Account whose details don’t match the ones provided by us;
- make sure that correct telephone number and email addresses are updated on their provile as and when necessary;
- avoid sending emails on public internet networks (public wifi);
- keep your devices updated with current anti-virus software, latest browser versions and relevant security patches and updates;
- never install any software, or grant remote access to a computer you are using as the result of a cold call or online marketing for products and services;
- stay alert – fraudsters may make contact pretending to be from Guavapay, a bank, the police or another trusted organisation and ask You to transfer money to another account or to disclose personal confidential information. A genuine organization will never make contact with such requests;
- be aware of phishing emails or texts, and specifically not to open any links or attachments within them; and of emails or text messages claiming to be from a person at Guavapay asking for private information or asking to make a payment. If such unexpected email or text message is received from Guavapay, notification of the same should be made either by email at email@example.com or by phone by calling the Customer Contact Center on +442045773333
