2. THIS AGREEMENT

2.1 Your Card is an e-money prepaid card. This is not a credit, charge or debit card.

2.2 Your Card has been issued by us pursuant to license by MasterCard International Incorporated. This Card is an e-money product. The e-money associated with this Card is provided by us. Your rights and obligations relating to the use of this Card are subject to this Agreement between you and us; you have no rights against MasterCard International Incorporated or their respective affiliates. If you experience any difficulties in using the Card you should contact Customer Services or your Company. The e-money associated with this Card is provided to the Programme Manager by us and will be denominated in Czech Koruna ("CZK"). The Programme Manager will grant to you the right to use its e-money up to the value loaded on each Card. All legal rights (including legal title) associated with the e-money will remain with the Programme Manager and do not pass to you. In the unlikely event that we become insolvent, the e-money on your Card may lose its value and become unusable, and accordingly you may lose the right to use such e-money.  The Card remains our property.


3. RECEIVING AND ACTIVATING YOUR CARD

3.1 When you receive your Card, you must sign it immediately on the signature panel on the reverse of the Card.

3.2 Your Card cannot be used until it has been activated. You can activate your Card by calling Customer Services, and selecting the "Card Activation" option from the menu, or via MyAccount. During the activation process you will be asked to quote your Card Number and your activation code which is detailed on the letter received with your Card. You may also be requested to provide some details to confirm your identity.

3.3 During activation, you will be given a 4 digit PIN. You should never write down your PIN, reveal your PIN to anybody or enter your PIN in a way that enables it to be easily seen by others. We will not reveal your PIN to a third party.  If you forget your PIN, you can obtain a reminder of it by calling Customer Services or on MyAccount.


4. USING YOUR CARD 

4.1 Your Card can only be used for Transactions at affiliated Merchants as listed on the Website. If you try to use your Card at any other store it will be declined.  Transactions must be in CZK.  Any Transactions attempted in other currencies will be declined.

4.2 Your Card is a prepaid Card, which means that the Card's Available Balance will be reduced by the Full Deductible Amount. In order for a Transaction to be authorised, the Full Deductible Amount must be less than or equal to the Available Balance on your Card. You must not use your Card if the Full Deductible Amount exceeds the Available Balance. In such circumstances, you can ask the Merchant if they can proceed to a split payment, paying the excess amount by another means of payment and using your prepaid card to pay the balance. If, for any reason, a Transaction is processed for an amount greater than the Available Balance on your Card, you must repay the Programme Manager the amount by which the Full Deductible Amount exceeds your Available Balance within 14 days of receiving an invoice from them. Should you not repay this amount within 14 days of receiving an invoice from the Programme Manager, the Programme Manager has the right to take all steps necessary, including legal action, to recover any monies outstanding.

4.3 You will need to authorise any Transaction so that we can check it is genuine.  We will treat the Transaction as genuine if your PIN or CVC is used or if you authorise the Transaction by signature of the receipt.  You may not usually stop a Transaction after it has been authorised as at that point it is deemed to be received by us. You will be responsible for all Transactions where you have provided authorisation.

4.4 You can check your Available Balance and the expiration date at any time by checking the Website. 

4.5 Due to security safeguards, Merchants that accept your Card are required to seek authorisation from us for all Transactions you make. There are some circumstances where Merchants may require you to have an Available Balance greater than the value of the Transaction you wish to make. You will only be charged the Full Deductible Amount corresponding to the actual and final value of the Transaction you make. Merchants request this as they may need to access more funds than you initially planned to spend.

4.6 Your Card should not be used as a form of identification. We will decline any authorisation requests from Merchants using your Card for identification purposes.

4.7 Your Card cannot be used to make cash withdrawals.

4.8 You may not use your Card to obtain traveller's cheques, to obtain cash back from any Merchant, to settle outstanding balances on credit cards, bank overdrafts or credit agreements, to pay for memberships or subscriptions by direct debit.

4.9 The Available Balance on your Account will not earn any interest.

4.10 We may request you to surrender the Card at anytime (in accordance with paragraph 12 of these terms and conditions). In the event that we do so then any Available Balance on your Card will not be available to you to use.


5. TOPPING-UP YOUR CARD

5.1 You will not be able to load funds onto your Card yourself. Provided that you remain eligible in accordance with the requirements of the Company, then on receipt of the Programme Manager's instructions and our receipt of payment from the Programme Manager, e-money will be issued and the value of the e-money will be added to the Available Balance on your Card.

5.2 Any funds loaded on to your card will expire 24 calendar months following the date of the load.


6. CARD EXPIRY

6.1 The expiry date of your Card is printed on the front of the Card. You will not be able to use your Card once it has expired.

6.2 No Transactions will be processed after your Card has expired.

6.3 In accordance with paragraph 2.2, any Available Balance remaining on your Card after the expiry date and any legal rights associated with the e-money will remain with the Programme Manager and will not pass to you.


7. CARDHOLDER LIABILITY AND AUTHORISATIONS

7.1 We may restrict or refuse to authorise any use of your Card if using the Card is causing or could cause a breach of this Agreement or if we have reasonable grounds for suspecting that either you or a third party has committed or is about to commit a crime or other abuse in connection with the Card.

7.2 If we need to investigate a Transaction on the Card then you must cooperate with us, or any other authorised body if this is required.

7.3 You should never allow another person to use your Card.

7.4 You will be responsible for all Transactions which you authorise by use of your PIN, signature or CVC.

7.5 You agree to indemnify and hold harmless us and our distributors, partners, agents, sponsors, and service providers and their group companies from and against the costs of any legal action taken to enforce these terms and conditions and/or any breach of these terms and conditions or fraudulent use of your Card by or authorised by you.


8. LOST, STOLEN OR DAMAGED CARDS

8.1 You should treat the e-money on your Card like cash in your wallet. If you lose your Card or it is stolen then any e-money on it may be lost in just the same way as if you lost your wallet.

8.2 In the event of loss, theft, fraud or any other risk of an unauthorised use of your Card, or if your Card is damaged or malfunctions, you must immediately inform us via the Website.  You will be liable for a maximum of the 2000 CZK for any unauthorised Transactions that take place prior to you notifying us and these will reduce the Available Balance.

8.3 Provided that you have given notification under paragraph 8.2 and paragraph 8.4 does not apply, then you will not be liable for losses that take place following the date on which you gave such notification to us.  If there is an Available Balance remaining on your Card, we will replace your Card and transfer the last Available Balance onto it.   Please note, a fee of 150 CZK will be payable for your replacement Card and this will be deducted from your Available Balance.

8.4 In the event that we have reason to believe you have acted fraudulently or you have acted with gross negligence or acted intentionally in failing to notify us of the lost or stolen Card then you shall be liable for the losses.

9.5.1the authorisation you gave did not specify the exact amount to be paid;
