- Your authorisation for a POS Transaction, an E-Commerce Transaction or for an ATM Transaction will be received by us at the time we receive the POS Transaction or E-Commerce Transaction instruction from the merchant acquirer or at the time we receive the ATM Transaction instruction from the ATM acquirer, respectively. All of these authorisations will be received by us almost instantaneously and it is unlikely that you will be able to withdraw your authorisation for a Transaction before this time.
- Blocking your Decta Wallet and your Decta Prepaid Card and refusing Transactions made with your Decta Prepaid Card
- We may at any time suspend, restrict or cancel your Decta Wallet and/or your Decta Cards, or suspend or restrict access to the Co-Brand Website or refuse to issue or replace the Decta Cards for reasons relating to the following:

- you tell us that your Decta Prepaid Card is lost or stolen as further detailed in clause 9; or
- if the contract between us has been cancelled as further detailed in clause 7.

If it is not practicable to inform you in advance and unless doing so would compromise reasonable security measures or otherwise be unlawful, we will inform you immediately afterwards, giving our reasons.
- We will unblock your Decta Wallet and/or your Decta Cards and allow you to regain access to the Co-Brand Website as soon as practicable after the reasons for stopping its use cease to exist and will inform you by phone or email when we have unblocked your Decta Wallet and/or your Decta Cards and allowed you to regain access to the Co-Brand Website.
- We may refuse to carry out a Transaction:
- if we believe that you are acting in breach of these Terms and Conditions;
- if we believe that a Transaction is potentially suspicious or illegal;
- if the value of the Transaction you are attempting to make plus any applicable Fees is in excess of your Balance; or
- if we are unable to carry out the Transaction due to errors, failures (whether mechanical or otherwise) or refusals caused by merchants, ATM operators, payment processors, card networks or payment schemes who are processing Transactions.
- If we refuse to carry out a Transaction, unless informing you would compromise reasonable security measures or be otherwise unlawful, we will inform you at the earliest opportunity and in any event by the end of the Business Day following the day we have received the Transaction request. Normally we will inform you with an error message on the merchant's or ATM operators’ terminal or website and if applicable, a receipt showing that the Transaction has not been successful, although in some instances we may inform you by phone or e-mail. You can contact the Co-Brand using any of the Contact Methods to ask for the reasons for refusing to carry out that Transaction and for an explanation of how you can correct any information we hold that led to our refusal to approve a Transaction.
- You may correct any information we hold and which may have caused us to refuse a Transaction by contacting us via any Contact Method.
- Cancelling your contract with us
- The contract between us which is set out in these Terms and Conditions will continue until cancelled in accordance with this clause 7. Your Decta Prepaid Card will be valid for the period ending on the last calendar day of month indicated on your Decta Prepaid Card, at which point we shall expect you to contact us and specifically request the renewal Decta Prepaid Card.

- in the event of your death or incapacity.
- We may cancel the contract with you for any reason by giving you at least 2 months' written notice.
- We may also cancel the contract with you with immediate effect and/ or suspend your Decta Wallet (including access to it via the Co-Brand Website) if we believe your Decta Wallet and/or Decta Cards are deliberately being used by you or anyone else to commit fraud or for other illegal purposes. If we do this, we will tell you by phone or e-mail only to the extent to which we are permitted to do so by law and you must stop using your Decta Wallet (or attempting to access it via the Co-Brand Website) and your Decta Cards immediately.
- If we or you cancel the contract between us, then as soon as we are permitted to do so (and normally within 5 Business Days after you contacted us where you cancel this contract) we will return any Balance remaining on your Decta Wallet (after the deduction of all pending Transactions and applicable Fees) to you. Please note that in order to comply with applicable legal and regulatory requirements, including anti-money laundering and terrorist financing requirements, we may need:
- to verify your identity; and
- to return that Balance to the same bank account of the Co-Brand which has previously been used to top up your Decta Wallet.
- Once the contract between us has been cancelled, you will not be entitled to a refund of money you have already spent on Transactions authorised or pending, or any Fees for the use of your Decta Wallet or Decta Cards incurred before the contract between us was cancelled.
- Keeping your Decta Prepaid Card secure
- It is important that you take all reasonable care and precautions to keep your Decta Wallet details and your Decta Cards and details safe and you must not allow your Decta Cards to be used by anyone else. You must also keep your PIN safe and you must not disclose it or allow it to be used by anyone else.
- If your Decta Prepaid Card is lost or stolen, or if you suspect that someone else knows your PIN, please follow the instructions set out in clause 9 below.

- You must keep your PIN secret at all times. You should never disclose this security information to anyone. If you suspect that someone else knows your PIN, you should tell the Co-Brand as soon as possible using one of the Contact Methods so that the Co-Brand can give you information on how to change these details.
- We have the right to disable your Decta Prepaid Card, at any time, if in our reasonable opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these Terms and Conditions.
- We recommend that you check your Transaction history through the Co-Brand Website on a regular basis to identify any potential unauthorised use of your Decta Cards and to check for Transactions which you do not recognise.

- Provided that you notified us in accordance with clause 9.2 above of an unauthorised or incorrectly executed Transaction without delay and at the very latest within 13 months of the debit date of that Transaction you may be entitled to a refund of that Transaction.
- If the unauthorised Transaction arose from the loss, theft or misappropriation of your Decta Prepaid Card details or of your user name and password applying to your access to the Co-Brand Website or of your PIN or any other security information, we will refund the amount involved, except the first £50, for which you may be liable.

- Where any refund is due to you, we shall make it immediately or, if that is not possible, as soon as practicable following receipt of your claim or of any further information we may request in order to investigate your right to a refund. However, if, following investigation, we have reasonable grounds to believe that a refund was not in fact due to you for any reason, or that we have made too large a refund, we may reverse that previous refund and you may be liable for any loss we suffer from your use of your Decta Cards.
- Redeeming funds in your Decta Wallet
- You have a general right to redeem funds held in your Decta Wallet at any time in whole or in part. To do so, please use any of the Contact Methods to request a redemption and indicate the amount to be redeemed (before the deduction of any applicable Fees).
