4. Use of your Card(s)
4.1 Your Card can be used at any Merchant or cash machine/ATM that displays the Mastercard® Acceptance Mark, excluding limited acceptance Merchants in EU/EEA that do not accept prepaid cards. The Card issued is intended for use in countries where the national currency is the same as the currency Account associated to the Card and this Agreement is entered into on this basis. If a Merchant or cash machine/ATM offers You the choice to make a Transaction in either "local currency" or "Card currency" (depending on the country in which You are located) We recommend You choose to make the purchase in "Card currency" to avoid a Cross Border Transaction.
4.2 You can authorise a Transaction at any Merchant by entering Your PIN or if the Merchant does not accept chip and PIN authorisation, the Merchant may allow You to authorise the Transaction by signing the receipt. Please be aware that You may not stop a Transaction once 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 authorise such Transactions, regardless of the manner of such authorisation.
4.3 You must not give the details of Your Card to any Merchant with a view to entering into any arrangement for periodic billing. Any debits made to Your Account as a result of such arrangements will be considered to have been authorised by You.
4.4 Cash machines/ATMs bearing the Mastercard® Acceptance Mark can be used to make cash withdrawals and We will not charge You any fees for this service (limits apply - see Clause 11). However, certain cash machine/ATM providers charge their own fee for making cash withdrawals, especially cash machines/ATMs situated in convenient locations such as those found inside a supermarket or within a hotel. Please note that We are not liable for such fees as they are beyond Our control, nor are We responsible for ensuring that they will accept the Card.
4.5 Every time Your Card is used to make a Transaction, the Available Balance will be reduced by the full amount of each Transaction and authorisation. When You make a Transaction, You or must ensure that the total Transaction value is less than or equal to the Available Balance. If, for any reason, an authorised Transaction is processed for an amount which exceeds the Available Balance, You must repay Us the difference in full within 10 Business Days of receiving an invoice from Us. Should You not repay this amount within 10 Business Days of receiving an invoice from Us. We reserve the right to take all steps necessary, including legal action, to recover any monies outstanding.
4.6 Due to security safeguards, Merchants that accept Your Card are required to seek authorisation from Us for all of the Transactions that You make. There are some circumstances where Merchants may require an Available Balance greater than the value of the Transaction You wish to make and this will be determined by making a pre-authorisation. Any pre-authorisation made on Your Card will result in a reduction in the Available Balance, We shall release any blocked funds without undue delay as soon as We are aware of the exact amount of the payment transaction and immediately after receipt of the relevant payment order. You will only be charged for the actual and final value of the Transaction You make. Merchants request this as they may need to access more funds than You initially intended to spend in such circumstances (without limitation) as:
4.6.1 Hire car companies, hotels and self-service petrol pumps - Such Merchants may not be able to accurately predict how much the final bill will be, therefore they may make a pre-authorisation request for funds greater than the final bill and Available Balance.
4.6.2 Online Merchants - upon registration or at check-out stage, certain Merchants may make a pre-authorisation to verify the payment details provided and/or to verify if funds are available to complete the Transaction. Certain online Merchants won't take payment from the Available Balance until goods are dispatched so please be aware of this when checking the Available Balance to make sure enough funds are in Your Account to complete online purchases.
4.7 When making an online Transaction, You may be asked to register with Mastercard SecureCode™ in order to complete Your purchase.
4.8 Although the Mastercard® logo may be displayed in some countries the Card may not operate there (due to restrictions of Mastercard).
4.9 If there are insufficient funds in Your Account to pay for a transaction the Card may be declined.
4.10 You agree to accept a credit to the Account if You are entitled to a refund for any reason for goods or services purchased using the Card.
4.11 We cannot stop a transaction or payment once You authorise the use of the Card.
4.12 The Available Balance held in Your Account(s) will not earn any interest.
