1.5 We reserve the right to refuse Your application to activate the Card if the results of the checks carried out pursuant to clause 3 or otherwise give Us reason to suspect You of being involved in or intending to use the Card for money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud or other illegal activity. If We refuse You activation and use of the Card, We will inform You of the refusal but may not inform You of the reason for the refusal.
1.6 In some cases, the Kingcard Prepaid Mastercard Card will be distributed by one of Our commercial partners, for example in exchange for electronic goods. Whilst Our commercial partner may distribute the Card, this Agreement is separate and distinct from any agreement You may have with Our commercial partner.
2.1 The Card is a prepaid payment card which may be used to pay for goods and services at participating retailers that accept prepaid MasterCard cards. It is designed for use in shops and retail locations where You are physically presentand for online, telephone and other distance purchases. Like any payment card, We cannot guarantee that a particular retailer will accept the Card – please check with the retailer before attempting the transaction if You are unsure. You will not be able to use Your Card to make any purchases from some retailers; such retailers have been blocked by Our systems in order to prevent the potential use of cards for unauthorised or unlawful activity.
2.2 The Card is an electronic money (“e-money”) product regulated by the Financial Services Commission (“FSC”), Gibraltar. It is a prepaid card, not a credit card, and is not linked to Your bank account. You must ensure that You have sufficient Available Funds on the Card to pay for each purchase, payment or cash withdrawal using the Card. The Card is intended for use as a means of payment, and funds loaded onto the Card do not constitute a deposit. You will not earn interest on the balance of the Card. The Card will expire on the Expiry Date and will cease to work. Please check clause 8 of this Agreement for further information.
2.3 When You receive Your Card, it will be issued to You in an inactive state. You will need to activate it by referring to the Website and following the instructions for activation prior to use. If You don’t activate Your Card, any transactions that You attempt to carry out may be declined.
3. IDENTIFICATION REQUIRED FOR PURCHASE OF CARDS
3.1 The Card is a financial services product, and We are therefore required by law to hold certain information about Our customers. We use this information to administer Your Card, and to help Us identify You and Your Card in the event that it is lost or stolen. We only keep this information as long as is necessary and for the purposes described. Please see clause 17 for more information.
3.2 In order to obtain a Card, You must be at least 18 years old and a German resident. We may require evidence of who You are and of Your address. We may ask You to provide some documentary evidence to prove this and/or We may carry out checks on You electronically.
3.3 When We carry out these checks, Your personal information may be disclosed to credit reference agencies and fraud prevention agencies. These agencies may keep a record of the information and a footprint may be left on Your credit file, although the footprint will denote that the search was not a credit check and was not carried out in support of a credit application. It is an identity check only, and will therefore have no adverse effect on Your credit rating.
3.4 The activationof the Card will indicate to Us that You consent to the checks described in this Agreement being undertaken.
3.5 Where permitted, You may request additional Cards linked to Your Card. You authorise Us to issue Cards and PINs to the additional cardholders and You authorise each additional cardholder to authorise transactions on Your behalf.

The Card is otherwise non-transferable, and You are not permitted to allow any other person to use the Card, for example by disclosing Your PIN or allowing them to use Your Card details to purchase goods via the internet. Prior to use, the Card should be signed on the signature strip located on the back of the Card.
5.2 We will be entitled to assume that a transaction has been authorised by You where:
5.2.1 the magnetic strip on the Card was swiped by the retailer or the Card was inserted into a chip & PIN device;
5.2.2 the Card PIN was entered or a sales slip was signed;
5.2.3 relevant information was supplied to the retailer or the PISP that allows them to process the transaction, for example, providing the retailer with the 3-digit security code on the back of Your Card in the case of an internet or other non-face-to-face transaction; or
5.2.4 Your Card is tapped against a Contactless-enabled reader and accepted by such reader.
5.3 Normally, We will receive notification of Your authorisation by way of an electronic message in line with the rules and procedures of the payment scheme (MasterCard network).Once Youhave authorised atransaction, the transaction cannot be stopped or revoked. However, You may, in certain circumstances, be entitled to a refund in accordance with clauses 13 and 14.
5.4 On receipt of notification of Your authorisation of a transaction and the transaction payment order, normally We will deduct the value of the transaction, plus any applicable fees and charges, from the Available Funds on the Card. The transactions will be executed as follows:
5.4.1 Within the EEA, We will execute any transaction:
22.214.171.124 in euro;
126.96.36.199 executed wholly within Gibraltar in sterling; or
188.8.131.52 involving only one currency conversion between the euro and sterling, provided that the required currency conversion is carried out in Gibraltar and, in the case of cross-border transactions, the cross-border transfer takes place in euro, by transferring the amount of the transaction to the payment service provider of the retailer by the end of the next Business Day following the receipt of the payment order.

If We receive the payment order on a non-Business Day or after 4:30 pm on a Business Day, it will be deemed received by Us on the following Business Day.
5.5 Under normal circumstances, if any payment is attempted that exceeds the Available Funds on the Card,the transaction will be declined. In certain circumstances, a transaction may take Your Card into a negative balance – this will normally be where the retailerhas failed to seek authorisation for the transaction. In these cases, We will attempt to recover some or all of the money from the retailer, if We can, providing that We are satisfied that You have not deliberately used the Card in the manner that would result in a negative balance. We will deal with such instances on a case-by-case basis, but where there is a negative balance on Your Card, We may require You to make up the shortfall and, until there are Available Funds on Your Card, We may restrict or suspend the use of Your Card.
5.6 The Card may be used in full or part payment for purchases. In the case of part payment, the cardholder will be required to pay the outstanding amount of the purchase by an alternative means, for example, cash or debit card or credit card.

15.6 Generally speaking, in the EEA, if you opened your account online or used a service like Ours online, you may submit your complaint on the European Commission online dispute resolution platform (ODR platform) instead of complaining directly to the Financial Services Commission at http://ec.europa.eu/odr. At this moment in time, it is not possible to use the platform for a Gibraltar issuer like Us but this may change in the future. We will notify you of any such changes.
16. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
None of the organisations described in clauses 1.2 and 1.3 will be liable for:

16.1.2 the goods or services that You purchase with Your Card;
16.1.3 any loss of profits, loss of business, or any indirect, consequential, special or punitive losses;
16.1.4 a merchant refusing to honour a transaction or refusing a payment; or
16.1.5 any acts or omissions that are a consequence of Our compliance with any national or European Union law.
In any event the liability of the organisations described in clauses 1.2 and 1.3 will be limited to the balance of the Card at the time that the event occurs.
In addition to the limitations set out in clause 16.1, Our liability shall be limited as follows:

17.2 We may transfer Your personal data outside the EEA to Our commercial partners where necessary to provide Our services to You, such as customer service, account administration, financial reconciliation, or where the transfer is necessary as a result of Your request, such as the processing of any international transaction. When We transfer personal data outside the EEA, We will take steps to ensure that Your personal data is afforded substantially similar protection as personal data processed within the EEA. Please be aware that not all countries have laws to protect personal data in a manner equivalent to that of the EEA. Your use of Our products and services will indicate to Us that You agree to the transfer of Your personal data outside the EEA. If You withdraw Your consent to the processing of Your personal data or its transfer outside the EEA, which You can do by using the contact details in clause 15.1, We will not be able to provide Our services to You.

If you do not accept the change, you may end this Agreement immediately and free of charge before the expiry of the notice.
18.3 There may be times when we will have to change this Agreement without notice or with a notice shorter than 2 months but this would happen in a very limited number of cases and only for legal, regulatory or security reasons, or to enable the proper delivery of the Card scheme. If this is the case, we will notify you of such changes with as much notice as possible, or as soon as possible after the change has taken effect if advance notice is not possible. Your right under clause 10.3 to terminate the Agreement at any time free of charge would not be affected.
