If you pay applicable Fees and comply with these Terms of Use, You may use Your ecoAccount for receiving eMoney transfers from other Users and Business Entities and You may purchase eMoney to be issued and credited to Your ecoAccount so that You may make eMoney transfers to other Users and Business Entities. In addition, You may redeem eMoney from Your ecoAccount by using various payment instruments ensured by third parties (financial institutions or associations and other payment service providers) and which We make available to You but in any case including the possibility to redeem eMoney for funds in the Currency of the ecoAccount by transferring funds to Your bank account.

Although Your ecoAccount is not insured by any governmental agency, We strictly adhere to the legal requirements of the national laws of the United Kingdom and applicable regulations of the European Union. These are composed and issued to ensure the safety and liquidity of eMoney issued and credited to Your ecoAccount.
  • We do not act as a trustee, fiduciary or escrow holder regarding the balance on Your ecoAccount.

8. ecoAccount security


8.1. When You open an ecoAccount, You choose and fill in a unique and strong password and password recovery information. We advise You not to choose a password or password recovery information that someone might know or easily gather about You. In order to gain initial and subsequent access to an ecoAccount, You must enter Your login user name, password and if You use a two-step verification system (strong customer authentication), then also authentication data as required in the "Login Page" and press the "Log in" button on the Website.

8.2. Activities with Your ecoAccount and at Your ecoAccount profile will be regarded as valid after Your ecoAccount was successfully accessed by correctly entering Your login user name, password and, if You use a two-step verification system (strong customer authentication) then also authentication data as required. We may assume that someone who correctly enters Your login user name, password and if You use a two-step verification system (strong customer authentication) then also authentication data, as required, has unrestricted rights to access and use Your ecoAccount, including, but not limited to, authorizing Transactions and making changes to Your ecoAccount profile. We are entitled to treat any activity by that person as valid and authorised by You.

8.3. You are solely responsible for keeping Your Login Details and other credentials and information and/or documents specific to Your ecoAccount confidential and in a safe and secure place at all times and You must never disclose them to a third party. It is advisable to change the password to Your ecoAccount regularly, at least every 3 (three) to 6 (six) months, in order to reduce the risk of a security breach in relation to Your ecoAccount. You will not be able to access Your ecoAccount and will be automatically required to change Your password if You do not access Your ecoAccount for 60 (sixty) consecutive days or more. You must never allow anyone to access Your ecoAccount or oversee or hear You accessing or using the ecoAccount. You agree to take reasonable steps to keep Your Login Details safe and secure and to prevent fraudulent or unauthorised use of Your ecoAccount. We will also consider any Transaction and change to Your ecoAccount profile as authorised by You if only a part of the information mentioned in these Terms of Use is provided to Us. We are not responsible for losses arising out of Your failure to keep Your ecoAccount safe and secure or from unauthorised use of Your ecoAccount except as otherwise explicitly set forth in these Terms of Use.

8.4. If You have any indication or suspicion that Your Login Details or other security credentials on Your ecoAccount are lost, stolen, misappropriated, used (or attempted to be used) without authorisation or otherwise compromised without Your authority, You are advised to change Your password immediately. You must contact Our Customer Support Service immediately on suspecting or becoming aware of the loss, theft, misappropriation, unauthorised use or attempted use of Your ecoAccount, Login Details or other security credentials of Your ecoAccount without Your authority. You should do so by contacting the Customer Support Service via telephone or e-mail or posting a message on Your ecoAccount profile on the Website. Any undue delay in notifying Us may result in increase of Your losses. Once We receive notification from You, We will suspend functionality of Your ecoAccount and prevent anyone from using it. The date and hour of receipt of Your notification and suspension of functionality of Your ecoAccount will be recorded. We will send You a confirmation e-mail to the effect that functionality of Your ecoAccount is suspended and provide You with instructions to be followed to restore the functionality of Your ecoAccount. We will administer and retain all data on suspension of Your ecoAccount on the basis of Your notification for 18 (eighteen) months. We will let You have information about receipt of Your notification on Your written request and before expiration of the 18 (eighteen) month term.

8.5. You must take all reasonable care to ensure that Your e-mail address is secure and only accessed by You, as Your e-mail address may be used to reset the password of Your ecoAccount and We may use it to communicate with You about the security of Your ecoAccount. If someone tries to access or compromise Your e-mail address notified to Us without Your authority, You should without undue delay after becoming aware of this contact the Customer Support Service and let Us know Your new e-mail address to be used by Us. Any undue delay in notifying Us may result in Your losses.

8.6. In order not to compromise the security of Your ecoAccount, You must always ensure that Your Login Details are not stored by the browser or cached or otherwise recorded. You should at Your own expense provide and maintain in efficient and safe operating order all hardware, software and other facilities and any communications network (including access to a public telecommunications system) used for accessing and using Your ecoAccount and ecoPayz Services.

9.1. In order to purchase eMoney, You must enter Your login user name, password and, If You use a two-step verification system (strong customer authentication) then also authentication data as required, in the "Login Page", press the "Log in" button on the Website and follow the instructions for use of payment instruments. You may be presented with different payment instruments and You may choose one or more from a list of payment instruments made available to You depending on Your country of residence. Payment instruments are payment services provided by third parties (financial institutions or associations or other payment service providers) and are not a part of ecoPayz Services.

9.2. In order to purchase eMoney, You must at Our request let us have the required information, including passing all identity and security validation and verification checks. Depending on Your country of residence and/or chosen payment instrument, We may limit the amount of eMoney permitted to be purchased.

9.3. We are not responsible for issuance of eMoney until We receive funds for purchase of the appropriate amount of eMoney. eMoney purchased will be credited to Your ecoAccount without delay once We receive funds to be paid for the particular eMoney purchase. Some transactions, such as payments by credit/debit cards, may be credited to Your ecoAccount immediately at Your request and before We receive funds for a particular eMoney purchase. However, crediting eMoney to Your ecoAccount before We receive funds for eMoney purchase will be cancelled and reversed if We do not receive the funds within a reasonable time. We will deduct a reversed transaction from the balance on Your ecoAccount. We do not undertake liability for losses incurred by anyone due to the reversed transaction.

9.4. The amount of eMoney purchased to be credited to Your ecoAccount is equal to the funds at the par value of eMoney received from the payment account or payment instrument chosen by You, after deduction of any applicable Fees. You authorise Us to obtain or receive funds on Your behalf from the payment instrument or payment account chosen by You, plus applicable Fees, and then issue eMoney to Your ecoAccount.

9.5. We will make available to You details of all Fees and a breakdown of Fees, if applicable, charged by Us and payable by You. When using ecoPayz Services, You may also have to pay applicable fees of third parties (financial institutions or associations or other payment service providers). We cannot make available details of fees that may be charged by these parties, and, by agreeing to these Terms of Use, You confirm that You have understood this.

9.6. You acknowledge and agree that all eMoney purchases are final and not reversible. We cannot arrange for the payment account or payment instrument chosen by You to be refunded after You have requested and consented to execution of an eMoney purchase which You believe was made in error. However, in that case You may be able to redeem eMoney under these Terms of Use.

10. Chargebacks


10.1. You must honour an eMoney purchase. If You chose a payment instrument for eMoney purchase that is subject to a chargeback right, You agree that You will not exercise the chargeback right and will not chargeback any eMoney purchase You made by using that payment instrument and that was credited to Your ecoAccount other than on occasions, where We did not fulfil Our obligations under these Terms of Use, which would result in You having the right to a refund of eMoney purchased. You may not chargeback any eMoney purchase or allow a chargeback of any eMoney purchase, including, but not limited to, disputes with Business Entities for non-delivery of goods or services or insufficient balance on the payment instrument account.

10.2. Without limiting Our rights or remedies under these Terms of Use or any applicable law, if You cancel, chargeback or reverse an eMoney purchase, You are responsible for paying Us funds equal to the par value of the eMoney purchased, plus applicable Fees. We may, at Our discretion, recover the amount of a cancelled purchase or chargeback of eMoney by reducing the balance on Your ecoAccount or otherwise collecting the amount from You. We may charge You fees and expenses We incur in connection with a chargeback and action undertaken to challenge the same.

11. Uncleared funds and payments, negative balance on an ecoAccount


11.1. Certain eMoney purchase options may entitle You to have eMoney credited to Your ecoAccount before Your payment for eMoney purchase and applicable Fees are cleared by Your designated financial institution or association or other payment service provider. In that case We may periodically present these uncleared payments to Your financial institution or association or other payment service provider, as applicable. In addition, We may debit insufficient funds and uncleared payments from Your ecoAccount, obtain them from Your designated financial institution or association or other payment service provider, as applicable, or collect them from You in other ways. We will tell You before We do this unless telling You would compromise reasonable security measures or otherwise be unlawful, in which case We will tell You when We are permitted to do so.

11.2. Further, a negative balance on Your ecoAccount is a situation when there is insufficient eMoney in Your ecoAccount. A negative balance on Your ecoAccount may occur for various reasons described in these Terms of Use (for example, if You use a chargeback right despite not being permitted to do so under these Terms of Use or We claim repayment of an ungrounded refund of eMoney You received from Us). Any negative balance on Your ecoAccount is Your debt to Us with an immediate payment term. We may require and collect payment from You to cover an outstanding negative balance on Your ecoAccount at any time. Failure by You to make payment is a breach of these Terms of Use. We may at any time send You reminders or take other debt collection measures, including, but not limited to, mandating a debt collection agency or solicitors or pursuing a court claim. We may also charge You fees and expenses We reasonably incur in connection with debt collection or enforcement efforts.

12. Using an ecoAccount for eMoney Transactions


12.1. In order to authorize eMoney Transactions, You must enter Your login user name, password and, if You use a two-step verification system (strong customer authentication) then also authentication data as required in the "Login Page", press the "Log in" button on the Website and follow the procedure for executing Transactions. We will consider a Transaction to be authorized by You if it is initiated and consented to after Your ecoAccount is successfully accessed by correctly entering Your login user name, password and, if You use a two-step verification system (strong customer authentication) then also authentication data as required.

12.2. We will process and execute any Transaction, which is authorised, initiated and consented by You according to procedure for making Transactions set forth on the Website and in these Terms of Use.

12.3. A Transaction will be regarded as initiated by You when You insert the information required in a form of payment order available on the Website and submit it to Us by following the procedure on the Website.

12.4. We will confirm receipt of Your payment order as soon as practically possible by requiring You to give Your consent to the Transaction. However, if the day of receipt of Your payment order is not a Business Day We may confirm receipt of Your payment order on the following Business Day after You submitted it to Us by requiring Your consent to the Transaction.

12.5. Your consent to execute the Transaction is given at the moment when the ‘Confirm’ button in relation to a specific Transaction is pressed on the Website.

12.6. We will execute the Transaction as soon as practically possible. We will execute a Transaction by the end of the Business Day following the moment when You consented to execute (confirmed) the Transaction, provided that the Transaction initiated is to be executed:

  • in euro within the EEA;
  • in sterling within the United Kingdom;
  • in euro within the EEA, involving one currency conversion between sterling and euro.

Where You have given consent (confirmation) to execute a Transaction other than already mentioned wholly within the EEA and in a currency issued within the EEA, We will execute the Transaction by the end of the 4th (fourth) Business Day following the moment when You provided consent (confirmation) to execute the Transaction.

If Your country of residence is not within the EEA or if You wish to use a currency not issued within the EEA, the term for executing the Transaction may be longer.

12.7. You may not revoke Your request to execute a Transaction once You have consented to execute (confirmed) the Transaction. You may revoke Your request to execute a Transaction until You consent to execute (confirm) the Transaction but We may charge You a Fee for revoking the Transaction.

12.8. We will process Your payment orders if We consider they are complete, clear and were submitted by You. Clear payment orders are those We can understand without problems. Unless a payment order is obviously wrong, We will assume You gave Us correct information. In particular, We will assume the recipient’s e-mail address You indicated is correct. Complete payment orders contain all the information We need. However, We may act on the basis of Your incomplete payment orders if We reasonably believe that We can execute the Transaction without referring to You for clarification. We may request supporting documents regarding a Transaction before executing it. In that case the term for executing the specific Transaction will be the end of the Business Day following the moment when We received supporting documents requested by Us. If Your country of residence is not within the EEA or if You wish to use a currency not issued within the EEA, the term for executing the Transaction may be longer.

12.9. You are fully responsible for payment orders You give to Us. If a Transaction is executed in line with a payment order consented to (confirmed) by You, You acknowledge and agree that the Transaction was correctly executed by Us. You acknowledge and agree that all executed Transactions are final and not reversible unless We agree to reverse them or unless We must reverse a specific Transaction on the basis of a lawful and grounded request from You or unless reversal is necessary to fulfil Our mandatory obligation under any applicable law or these Terms of Use.

12.10. When providing payment orders for execution of Transactions, You may not designate an amount in excess of the balance on Your ecoAccount at the time the payment order is submitted to Us, plus applicable Fees. If You attempt to do so, Your request for execution of the Transaction will be denied. We will inform You if Your request for execution of a Transaction is denied due to an insufficient balance on Your ecoAccount.

12.11. We may refuse to execute a Transaction if You have not fulfilled these Terms of Use or if execution of the Transaction would be unlawful or when, in exceptional circumstances, despite Our efforts, it is not possible to execute the Transaction according to these Terms of Use or any applicable law. We will inform You if Your request to execute a Transaction has been refused by giving reasons for refusal and, if possible, telling You what You need to do to correct an error that led to refusal of the Transaction unless We are not permitted to do so by any applicable law. We will notify You of refusal of the Transaction on the Website at the earliest opportunity and in any event within the period specified in Section 12.6 in which We undertook to execute the Transaction. If Your country of residence is not within the EEA or if You wish to use a currency not issued within the EEA, the term for completion of execution of the specific Transaction may be longer. We may charge You a Fee for notification.

12.12. If during processing of the Transaction You are asked to provide a recipient's e-mail address, You must take great care to type this information correctly. We use the recipient’s e-mail address as a unique identifier to determine the intended recipient of the payment order that You require Us to process and execute. Other information You provide along with the recipient’s e-mail address may be disregarded and We will not be liable for any error You make when entering the recipient’s e-mail address.

12.13. If a recipient’s e-mail address is not registered with Us, We will send notification to that e-mail address indicating that someone wishes to send to him/her/it funds and We will provide instructions on how to claim the funds. In that case We will only transfer the funds to the recipient when they are claimed in line with the instructions set in Our notification e-mail. Until then, no contractual or fiduciary relationship will exist between Us and the intended recipient. The funds remain those of the sender and We do not undertake liability for losses incurred by anyone due to failure to execute the payment within a specific term.

12.14. We may impose limits on the amounts and frequency of Transactions that You may request Us to execute.

You acknowledge and agree that all receipts of eMoney transfers in Your ecoAccount are final and not reversible unless We agree to reverse a specific eMoney transfer on the basis of a lawful and grounded request by You or the sender or unless reversal is necessary to fulfil Our mandatory obligation under any applicable law or these Terms of Use or the Terms of Use for the Business Entity Account.

14. Redeeming eMoney


14.1. You may redeem all or any part of the eMoney in Your ecoAccount (excluding amounts that have not been cleared by Your financial institution or association or other payment service provider) at par value in the Currency of the ecoAccount by choosing one of the redemption methods available to You in Your country of residence as set out on the Website.

If Your country of residence is not within the EEA or the Currency of the ecoAccount is not issued within the EEA, the term for completing Your redemption request may take longer than 3 (three) Business Days.

14.3. Your ecoAccount is not subject to redemption limits. However, the eMoney in Your ecoAccount should be sufficient to cover Fees applicable to redemption, if any. Depending on the redemption method You choose, Fees may be applicable for executing Your redemption request if You request redemption before You terminate these Terms of Use or more than 1 (one) year after the date of termination of these Terms of Use. In that case Fees are deducted from the balance on Your ecoAccount before or on execution of the redemption request. Where You request redemption on the day of termination of these Terms of Use or up to 1 (one) year after that, We will redeem the total value of eMoney held in Your ecoAccount free of charge. We need not respond to Your redemption request and We need not redeem eMoney to You if You request redemption more than 6 (six) years after the date of termination of these Terms of Use.

14.4. You must ensure that the payment details You enter when redeeming eMoney for funds are correct and complete. We are not liable for sending funds to the wrong payment account or payment instrument because incorrect payment details were provided. It is Your responsibility to ensure that the payment details provided by You, including, but not limited to, name, account number, sort codes, IBAN and/or BIC/SWIFT, are correct. If You redeem eMoney for funds to a wrong payment account or payment instrument, You may ask Us to assist You in reclaiming funds. However, We cannot guarantee the success of these efforts. We may charge You Fees for assistance.

14.5. Where You receive payment of funds at the par value of redeemed eMoney through the involvement of a third party - another payment service provider, for example, a bank at which You hold a payment account, We will not be responsible for placing funds at the par value of redeemed eMoney to the payment account or payment instrument chosen by You once We have transferred the funds to the relevant payment service provider.

14.6. You acknowledge and agree that all eMoney redemptions out of Your ecoAccount are final and not reversible. We cannot arrange for Your ecoAccount to be refunded after You have requested, authorised and consented to (confirmed) redemption of eMoney from Your ecoAccount.

18.1. If You notify Us without undue delay and in any event no later than 13 (thirteen) months after the debit date of becoming aware of the existence of a Transaction which was defectively executed without observing Your payment order submitted to Us under these Terms of Use (“Incorrect Transaction”) or of the existence of Your payment order in regard of which the amount was debited from Your ecoAccount but which We did not execute under these Terms of Use due to Our gross negligence (“Non-executed Transaction”), You will receive without undue delay a refund of the Incorrect Transaction or Non-executed Transaction including all Fees deducted therefrom and We will restore the balance on Your ecoAccount to reflect what it would have been in had the Incorrect Transaction or Non-executed Transaction not taken place unless We can prove that We executed the disputed Transaction according to Your payment order and these Terms of Use.

18.2. If due to Our gross negligence We defectively execute an eMoney transfer to You from another User or Business Entity or We fail to execute an eMoney transfer to You from another User or Business Entity, both of which were initiated by another User or Business Entity under these Terms of Use or the Terms of Use for the Business Entity Account, then upon receipt of notice from the other User or Business Entity We will immediately make available to You an eMoney transfer with a credit value date for Your ecoAccount for the date on which the amount of eMoney would have been dated if the transfer of eMoney had been executed correctly unless We can prove that We executed the disputed eMoney transfer under another User’s or Business Entity’s payment order and these Terms of Use or the Terms of Use for the Business Entity Account. Upon receipt of Your request We will immediately try to trace the eMoney transfer and will notify You of the outcome, free of charge.

18.3. If You notify Us without undue delay and in any event no later than 13 (thirteen) months after the debit date of becoming aware of the existence of a Transaction which due to Our gross negligence was executed late without observing the provisions of these Terms of Use (“Late Transaction”), We will ensure that the credit value date for the other User’s or Business Entity’s ecoAccount is no later than the date on which the amount of eMoney would have been dated if the Transaction had been executed correctly.

18.4. We will refund a Transaction, including all Fees deducted therefrom, that We execute without Your authorization under these Terms of Use (“Unauthorised Transaction”) and, where applicable, We may restore Your ecoAccount to reflect the status it would have been in had the Unauthorised Transaction not taken place by ensuring that the credit value date of Your ecoAccount is no later than the date on which the amount of the Unauthorised Transaction was debited from Your ecoAccount. In that event We will do so as soon as practically possible and in any event no later than by the end of the following Business Day after You notify Us of the Unauthorised Transaction, if all the following conditions are met:

  • You notify Us without undue delay and in any event no later than 13 (thirteen) months after the debit date of becoming aware of the existence of the Unauthorised Transaction;
  • We do not have reasonable grounds to suspect fraud or some other criminal offence and We have not communicated those grounds to the relevant government authority or recognised crime-prevention body;
  • the Unauthorised Transaction has not arisen from Your failure through intent or gross negligence to keep Your Login Details or other security credentials of Your ecoAccount safe and secure under these Terms of Use;
  • none of the circumstances set forth in Section 18.5 of these Terms of Use occurred.

18.5. You will bear all losses relating to any Unauthorised Transaction executed by Us, if:

  • You acted fraudulently;
  • You failed intentionally or due to Your intent or gross negligence to keep Your Login Details or other security credentials of Your ecoAccount safe and secure;
  • We executed the Transaction before receiving Your notification that You have an indication or suspicion that Your Login Details or other security credentials of Your ecoAccount are lost, stolen, misappropriated, used or attempted to be used without authorisation, or otherwise compromised without Your authority, as provided for in these Terms of Use.

18.6. If an Unauthorised Transaction arises from use of lost or stolen Login Details or from misappropriation of Your Login Details or other security credentials of Your ecoAccount, You may be liable up to a maximum of EUR 50 for losses incurred with respect to a specific Unauthorised Transaction except in any case under Section 18.4 of these Terms of Use listing circumstances when You are fully liable Yourself for an Unauthorized Transaction.

18.7. If We later find that You are not entitled to a refund under Section 18.4 of these Terms of Use, We will debit from Your ecoAccount the amount We refunded and any Fees You owe Us.

18.8. If You provide an incorrect unique identifier (namely, the recipient’s e-mail address) in the payment order of a Transaction, We are not liable for non-execution or defective execution of the Transaction. However, We will do Our best to recover the eMoney involved in the Transaction. If We are not able to recover the eMoney involved in the Transaction, upon receipt of Your written request sent by e-mail to Our Customer Support Service, We will let You have relevant information in Our possession and necessary for You to file a legal claim to recover the eMoney involved in the Transaction. However, We will let You have data and information only where it is fair and lawful to do so. We may charge You a Fee for doing so.

18.9. If an Incorrect Transaction, Late Transaction or Non-executed Transaction occurs, then and upon receipt of Your request We will assist in tracing the Incorrect Transaction, Late Transaction or Non-executed Transaction and will notify You of the outcome, free of charge.

We will not be liable or responsible in any way for losses arising from Our compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. We will not be liable for assessing or paying taxes, duties or other charges that arise from the underlying Transactions between You and Users.

18.11. You are fully responsible for goods or services bought or sold by You that are settled through Your use of ecoPayz Services. We disclaim liability and We will not be held liable or responsible at all for the quality, safety, legality or delivery of goods sold to You or purchased by You or services received or provided by You in return for eMoney paid for through ecoPayz Services, including charges, taxes or other duties in relation to goods or services, nor do We provide a warranty or guarantee for those goods and services.

This provision survives termination of the legal relations between You and Us.

18.13. Our liability under these Terms of Use, whatever its basis, will not exceed in total the difference between (i) the amount of fees We receive from You during the month in which liability accrued, and (ii) assessments and offsets against fees that arose during that month.

25. Changes to these Terms of Use


25.1. These Terms of Use and additional terms and conditions that may apply to ecoPayz Services may change. We may find it necessary to change the Terms of Use due to changes in fees set by Us or due to changes in any applicable law, issuance of new laws or difficulties arising with any applicable laws, or due to the technical characteristics of ecoPayz Services or other objective reasons from time to time. Changes to these Terms of Use will be implemented under the procedure set forth in this Section.

25.2. We will notify You 2 (two) months before any changes to these Terms of Use are due to take effect. We will notify You by posting a notice of the changes on the Website and by sending a notification e-mail to Your e-mail address.

If We give You notice as set out above and You do not inform Us that You wish to terminate these Terms of Use and to close Your ecoAccount, then Your continued use of ecoPayz Services will constitute acceptance of the changes to these Terms of Use and We will treat You as having accepted the changes. We will display a link to the new Terms of Use on the Website on the date when they enter into force. You may review the current Terms of Use before initiating a Transaction or purchase or redemption of eMoney at any time by clicking on the "Terms of Use" link on the Website.

25.3. However, should You wish not to be bound by any new version of the Terms of Use, You must notify Us that You do not agree to the changes before those changes enter into force. In that event, We will treat Your notice as a notification that You immediately wish to terminate use of ecoPayz Services and to close Your ecoAccount and these Terms of Use will be terminated immediately without charging Fees to You. We will cease providing ecoPayz Services to You immediately and redeem the balance on Your ecoAccount to Your bank account under these Terms of Use or other payment instrument used by You.

25.4. The Terms of Use displayed on the Website will show the most recent revision date. No revision will affect a Transaction or purchase or redemption of eMoney outstanding as of the date of entry into force of the specific revision.
