  1. when you decide to click ‘pay’ on the payment service provider’s page, you will be asked to select which of your eligible payment accounts you would like the payment to come from; and
  2. you will then be taken to your payment service provider’s website or app, where you will be asked to confirm the full details of the payment for you to check before proceeding.

You are responsible for checking that the payment details provided in accordance with clause 5 are correct before you confirm the payment by clicking ‘pay’. Once you click ‘pay’ you have given us your consent to initiate the payment transaction from your chosen payment account and this consent cannot be revoked. You can withdraw your consent to a transaction at any point before that stage by clicking the cancel button.

6. Authentication

Your payment account provider will apply its own authentication measures which may include two factor authentication (e.g. a password and biometric credential such as a fingerprint), in order to verify your payment which you acknowledge and agree we will rely upon.

We will provide you with the following information for each payment that you make using our payment initiation services:

  1. a reference number for each transaction;
  2. the amount of the payment in the currency in which it was paid;
  3. any charges that have been applied to the payment by us and paid by you;

the “Receipt”.

7. Corporate Opt-Out

30. Additional terms for Direct Users and Guest Users required by app stores

The provisions of this clause 30 apply if you are using our app as a Direct User or Guest User and using the iOS or Android versions of the app. The app, which is available on both the Apple App Store, and the Google Play Store, is controlled and offered by us from our facilities in England.

  2. you acknowledge that the Device Manufacturer has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the app;
  3. in the event of any failure of the app to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify the Device Manufacturer, and the Device Manufacturer will refund the purchase price (if any) for the app to you and, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the Device Manufacturer will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the app;
  4. you acknowledge that us, not the Device Manufacturer, are responsible for addressing any claims of yours or any third party relating to the app;

  6. you represent and warrant that you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country and you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties; and
  7. you acknowledge and agree that the Device Manufacturer, and the Device Manufacturer’s subsidiaries, are third party beneficiaries of these terms of use, and that, upon your acceptance of these terms of use, the Device Manufacturer will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these terms of use against you as a third party beneficiary.
