If we limit a Funding Source, we will alert you that there is a higher than normal level of risk associated with the payment (for example and without limitation, a risk that the payment may be challenged to be unauthorised). Such a notice does not mean that either party to the transaction is acting in a dishonest or fraudulent manner. It means there may be a higher than normal level of risk associated with the payment.

 

5.     Sending Money

5.1.         Our execution of your Payment Orders.

Subject to the terms of this Agreement (and your compliance with the same), you agree that we will execute a Payment Order via your account and credit the recipient to whom you are sending your payment where

5.2.         Our obligation to execute payment orders as set out above in this section 5.1 only applies to payments executed: between Users with registered Accounts; and in Eastern Caribbean Currency.

5.5.2.              return any unclaimed payment to your Balance within 3 Days after the date you initiated the payment.

 

5.6.         Recurring Payments

Recurring Payments are also called "subscriptions", "preapproved payments" or "automatic payments".  These can be managed via your JAD Account by scheduling and providing an advance Authorisation, giving a third party the ability to receive payments from your Account on a one-time basis, or on a (sporadically or periodically) recurring basis until you cancel your arrangement or authorisation with JAD. You hereby authorise and instruct JAD to pay the third party amounts from your JAD Account in response to your receipt and response to an a multipay JAD. You agree that JAD is not obligated to verify or confirm the amount the third party presents through us for the purpose of processing this type of payment. You further acknowledge and agree that payments made under this provision are variable and may be made on various dates.

 

5.7.         Cancelling Recurring Payments. You may cancel a Recurring Payment at any time up to 1 Business Day prior to the date the payment is scheduled to be made. You may cancel a Recurring Payment by logging in to your Account, accessing the "Settings" tab, then, in the "Payment settings" section, clicking on " Preapproved Payments" and following the instructions to cancel the payment. Please keep in mind that Recurring Payments are sometimes referred to as subscriptions or preapproved payments. In addition, if you cancel a Recurring Payment you may still be liable to the counterparty for the payment and be required to settle with the counterparty through alternative means.

 

5.8.         Currency Conversion

If your payment order requires a currency conversion by us, the conversion rate will be determined at the time the applicable third party processes your payment and completes the transaction. You acknowledge that the exchange rate determined at the time of each payment transaction will differ.

 

5.9.         Sending E-money in Multiple Currencies.

You may Send Money in any authorised currency as permitted and published on JAD.CASH under authorised currencies. There may be some restrictions with regard to where you can send certain currencies. When you are sending money to a counterparty who has requested a currency that is different than your primary currency, you will need to specify whether you want to pay the counterparty in the counterparty's requested currency, or in your primary currency (in some cases, the counterparty may not give you a choice). If you send E-money in a currency that is not your primary currency, we follow these practices:

5.9.1.              If you have a Balance in the requested currency, we will fund your transaction from your Balance.

5.9.2.              If you have a Balance in a different currency, we will perform a currency conversion and use it to fund your transaction.

 

6.    Receiving Money

JAD may allow anybody (with or without a JAD Account) to initiate a payment to your Account in response to a REQUEST JAD generated by you.  No direct payment to your account not associated with a previously generated request JAD can be made unless you first acknowledge and accept the payment order.

 

6.1.         Lifting your receiving limit.

We may, at our reasonable discretion (for example, without limitation, to limit fraud or credit risk), impose limits on the amount of money you can receive through our Service.  If you have a periodic receiving limit on your Account, you can view it by logging into your Account and clicking on the "View Limits" link on the "Account Overview".

 

6.1.1.              You may lift your receiving limit, where you:

6.1.1.a.                  confirm your location (whether via our automated process, your telephone or post) and or

6.1.1.b.                  for Business Account holders, provide supplemental business information.

6.1.2.              JAD may, from time to time, require you to, or provide you with the option of, carrying out other methods or procedures to lift your receiving limit.

 

6.2.         Payment Review.

Payment Review is a process by which JAD reviews certain potentially high-risk payment transactions. This may be because JAD has the reasonable suspicion that a buyer's Payment Instrument and/or Account are being used in relation to Restricted Activities (as set out in section 11) or for other reasons as determined by us in our reasonable discretion. If a payment is subject to Payment Review, JAD will:

6.2.1.a.                  execute the Payment Order initiated by the buyer;

6.2.1.b.                  in JAD's discretion, immediately upon such execution restrict the buyer's Payment Instrument;

6.2.1.c.                   place a hold on the payment, meaning the funds are held in the vendor's Account;

6.2.1.d.                  provide notice to the vendor to delay the shipping of the item purchased by the buyer; and

6.2.1.e.                  conduct its review of the payment.

6.2.2.              Where a Payment Review finds problem with the payment, the payment will be reversed and the funds returned to the buyer from the vendor's Account. JAD will provide notices to you by email and/or in the Transaction History tab of your JAD account. A payment subject to Payment Review is a review of the payment only and is implemented to reduce the risk of JAD users receiving high risk transactions. A payment subject to Payment Review is neither a review nor a representation by JAD as to the commercial dealings, character or reputation of a party to the payment transaction and should not be considered as a lessening of the respect of any person.

 

6.3.         Risk of Reversals, Chargebacks and Claims.

The receipt of a payment into your JAD Account does not equate to the receipt of cleared funds. A notification that E-money has been sent to you, does not amount to a receipt of E-money in your Account unless you have accepted the payment. You acknowledge and agree that a payment transaction is completed and received by you even if it becomes subject to a Reversal, Chargeback. Claim, Reserve or hold. When you receive a payment, you are liable to JAD for the full amount of the payment plus any Fees if the payment is later invalidated for any reason. In addition to any other liability, if there is a Reversal, or if you lose a Chargeback or Claim, you will owe JAD an amount equal to the Reversal, Chargeback or Claim and our Fees per Schedule 1 (including a Chargeback Fee if applicable) and JAD will debit your Balance to recover such an amount.

 

6.4.         Non discouragement.

In representations to your customers or in public communications, you agree not to mischaracterise or disparage JAD as a payment method. You agree that you will only surcharge for the use of JAD in compliance with any law applicable to you. You further agree that if you do charge a buyer any form of surcharge that you, and not JAD, will inform the buyer of the requested charge. JAD has no liability to any buyer where you have failed to inform the buyer of any surcharge. You acknowledge that if you are permitted to surcharge and you further fail to disclose any form of surcharge to a buyer this may constitute a criminal offence by you.

 

6.5.         Receiving Money in Multiple Currencies.

You do not need to maintain a Balance in a particular currency to accept payments sent in that currency.

6.5.1.              You may only maintain balances in the primary currency of the account. 

6.5.2.              If you already maintain a Balance in the currency in which you receive a payment, we will credit all payments received in that currency to your Balance.

6.5.3.              Where your balance is not in the currency of the payment, you will be advised of the currency conversion rate and the amount that will be credited to your account in the account's primary currency. 

6.5.4.              Where you and not (not JAD) offer a currency conversion at the point of sale, you will inform the buyer of the exchange rate and any charges that will be applied to the payment transaction. JAD has no liability to any buyer if you fail to inform the buyer of the exchange rate and charges. You acknowledge that if you fail to disclose the exchange rate and charges to the buyer this may constitute a criminal offence by you.

 

6.6.         Taxes. It is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to the payments you make or receive, and it is your responsibility to collect, report and remit the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority. JAD is not responsible for determining whether taxes apply to your transaction, or for collecting, reporting or remitting any taxes arising from any transaction.

 

6.7.         Your Refund Policy and Privacy Policy. We recommend that if you are selling goods or services you have a published return policy and a published privacy policy on your website.

 

 

7.    Account Balances and transaction information

7.1.         Balances and transaction information.

7.1.1.              You may check your Balance by logging into your Account. Key information relating to your payments including your transaction history will be updated and made available to you at any time by logging into your Account. You will also be able to access a downloadable report via the "History" section of your Account. The "History" section will also show all Fees incurred and any other amounts charged to your Account in the relevant period. The "History" will only be updated and made available if there has been any activity on your Account or any Fees have been incurred in the relevant period.

 

7.1.2.              JAD reserves the right to charge a Fee for providing you with additional information or for providing the transaction history and other information about Fees in a different way. The way in which we provide the transaction information will allow you to store and reproduce the information unchanged, for example by printing a copy.

 

7.1.3.              JAD will ensure that the details of each transaction will be made available for you to view online for at least 13 months from when it is first made available.

 

7.2.         If you hold a Balance you will not receive interest or any other earnings on this Balance because the Balance represents E-Money and not a deposit.

 

7.3.         Set-off of Balances. You agree that we may set-off any of the amounts held in Accounts held or controlled by you with any fees, charges or other amounts you owe us and (unless prevented by insolvency law) any such amounts you owe other members of the JAD Group. In simple terms, our right to set-off means that we may deduct such fees, charges or other amounts mentioned in this section from an Account Balance held or controlled by you.

 

7.4.         Security Interest. To secure your performance of this Agreement, you grant to JAD a legal claim against the proceeds of your Account as security for any amount you may owe to us. This is known in legal terms as a "lien" on and "security interest" in your Account.

 

8.    Cash Out/Redeeming E- money

8.1.         How to Withdraw/Redeem E-money. You may withdraw funds by electronically transferring them to your bank account or by making a Cash Out request at any Authorised JAD Agent. 

 

8.2.         Withdrawal must be denominated in the primary currency of the account, but may also be displayed in the currency where the withdrawal is being made.

 

8.3.         Withdrawal/Redemption Limits. We may, at our reasonable discretion (for example, without limitation, to limit fraud or credit risk), impose limits on the amount of money you can withdraw through our Service.  You can view your periodic withdrawal limits, if any, by logging into your Account and clicking on the "View Limits" link on the "Account Overview.

8.3.1.              Lifting your withdrawal limit.  In order to lift your withdrawal limit, you will be required to provide supplemental business information which may include location information and or details of the associated transactions. 

8.3.2.              JAD may, from time to time, vary the methods and requirement available to you to facilitate you being able to lift your withdrawal limit.

8.4.         Identity Requirements:  You agree to comply with our requests to verify your identity before we redeem E-money to you to allow us to reduce the risk of fraud or to otherwise comply with our anti-money laundering or other legal obligations.

8.5.         Execution timeframes.  Redemption transactions from your Payment Account will be executed within the timeframes set out in section 4.

8.6.         Transaction Review. We may review your withdrawal transaction to mitigate any risks and/or to prevent money laundering and to ascertain whether any Restricted Activity (as set out in section 11) is taking place ("Redemption Risk"). Where a Redemption Risk is identified by us, we reserve the right to restrict your Payment Instrument and/or refuse your Payment Order.

8.7.         When you instruct us to perform a redemption, we may treat this as a future dated Payment Order which we will execute within the timeframes set out in section 4 once we determine the Redemption Risk has passed. If we release the restriction and/or proceed to process your withdrawal, you agree that the date of your Payment Order will start on the Business Day the restriction was lifted.

 

9.    Terms and How to Close Your Account

9.1.         Terms and How to Close Your Account. The term of this Agreement is for a period of time when you successfully register for a JAD account until this Agreement is terminated for whatever reason.

 

9.1.1.              Subject to section 9.2, you may close your Account and terminate this Agreement at any time by logging in to your Account, clicking on the "Profile" tab, clicking on the "Close Account" link, and then following the instructions.

 

9.1.2.              Upon Account closure, we will cancel any pending transactions.

If you attempt to close your Account while we are conducting an investigation, we may hold your funds for up to 180 Days to protect JAD or a third party against the risk of Reversals, Chargebacks, Claims, fees, fines, penalties and other liabilities of whatever nature. You will remain liable for all obligations related to your Account even after the Account is closed.

9.3.1.              If you do not access your Account for a period of three years it may be closed.

 

9.3.2.              After closure, we may use the information you have provided us to try to send you any funds in redemption of the E-money in your Account. If that information is not correct and we are unable to complete the payment to you, we may then deposit (at your expense) your E-money with the Treasury Department of your country's, Ministry of Finance or where applicable any authority designated as the authority for the receipt of unclaimed E-Money.

 

9.3.3.              For the avoidance of doubt, neither the Ministry of Finance nor any designated authority, is an operational unit of JAD.

10. Fees and Currency Conversion

10.1.      Fees.

10.1.1.           Fees for registered Users are set out in Schedule 1 below as per your country. For the avoidance of doubt, a User with a JAD Account not registered in St. Kitts and Nevis will be liable to JAD for the fees as set out in the terms of the User Agreement applicable to the country where the User is registered or as set out in the Fee Table accessible via the "footer" of each page of the JAD website applicable to the country where the User is registered.

 

10.1.2.           If other Fees apply for services or functionalities not referred to in Schedule 1 below, you will be notified of those Fees on the JAD Website(s) where those other services or functionalities are offered or provided.

 

10.2.      Currency Conversion.

10.2.1.           If your transaction involves a currency conversion by JAD, it will be completed at a foreign exchange rate determined by a financial institution, which is adjusted regularly based on market conditions. The exchange rate is adjusted regularly and may be applied immediately and without notice to you. This exchange rate includes a processing fee expressed as a certain percentage above the wholesale exchange rate at which JAD obtains foreign currency, and the processing fee is retained by JAD.

 

10.2.2.           Where a currency conversion is offered by JAD at the point of sale you will be shown the exchange rate that will be applied to the transaction before you proceed with authorising the payment transaction. By proceeding with your authorisation of the payment transaction you are agreeing to the currency conversion on the basis of the exchange rate.

 

10.2.3.           Where a currency conversion is offered at the point of sale by the counterparty, not by JAD, and you choose to authorise the payment transaction on the basis of the counterparty's exchange rate and charges, JAD has no liability to you for that currency conversion.

 

10.2.4.           A Currency Conversion Fee (as set out in Schedule 1 of this Agreement) will apply whenever JAD performs a currency conversion.

12. Your Liability – Actions We May Take

12.1.      Your Liability

You are responsible for all Reversals, Chargebacks, fees, fines, penalties and other liability incurred by JAD, a JAD User, or a third party caused by your use of the Services and/or arising from your breach of this Agreement. You agree to reimburse JAD, a User, or a third party for any and all such liability.

12.1.1.           Reimbursement for Your Liability.  In the event you are liable for any amounts owed to JAD, JAD may immediately remove such amounts from your Balance (if available). If there are insufficient funds in your Balance to cover your liability, JAD reserves the right to collect your debt to JAD by using any payments received in your Account and otherwise you agree to reimburse JAD through other means. JAD may also recover amounts you owe us through legal means, including, without limitation, through the use of a debt collection agency.

12.1.2.           Temporary Holds for Disputed Transactions.  If a buyer files a Claim, Chargeback or Reversal on a payment you received, JAD will place a temporary hold on the funds in your Account to cover the full amount of the Claim, Chargeback or Reversal. A hold placed under this provision will not restrict your use of the Account with regard to funds other than those disputed or at risk under the Claim, Chargeback or Reversal, unless we have another reason for doing so. If you win the dispute or if the payment is eligible for a payment under the terms of JAD Vendor Protection, we will release the hold and restore your access to the applicable funds. If you lose the dispute, JAD will remove the applicable funds from your Account.

12.1.3.           Unless otherwise directed by us, you must not use or attempt to use your Payment Instrument or Account while it is suspended or has been closed. You must ensure that all agreements with counterparty's or other third parties that involve third party initiated payments (including, Recurring Payments) set up from your Account are cancelled immediately upon the termination, suspension or closure of your Account. You remain liable under this Agreement in respect of all charges and other amounts incurred through the use of your Account at any time, irrespective of termination, suspension or closure.

 

12.2.      Actions by JAD. If we have reason to believe that you have engaged in any Restricted Activities, we may take various actions to protect JAD, a User, a third party, or you from Reversals, Chargebacks, Claims, fees, fines, penalties and any other liability. The actions we may take include but are not limited to the following:

12.2.1.           We may, at any time and without liability, suspend, block, limit, close or cancel your right to use your Payment Instrument or Account entirely or for any particular transaction, which may in turn suspend, block, limit, close or cancel access to your Account or the Services (such as limiting access to any of your Funding Sources, and your ability to send money, make withdrawals, or remove financial Information). We will normally give you advance notice of any suspension or cancellation but we may, if it is reasonable to do so (for example if you are in breach of this Agreement or we consider it advisable for security reasons), suspend or cancel your right to use your Payment Instrument or Account without prior notice to you;

12.2.2.           Block your Account and/or hold any funds in the Account (including, without limitation, for more than 180 days if so required by JAD, where JAD's rights under section 12 arise from your engagement in the Restricted Activity set out in section 11.);

12.2.3.           Refuse any particular payment transaction at any time for any reason and will only be required to make available the fact of the refusal and the reasons for the refusal and how you may resolve the problem, where possible, upon request and provided it is not prohibited by law;

12.2.4.           We may reverse a payment (including, if appropriate, to the sender's Funding Source), that violates our Acceptable Use Policy or section 11, or which we reasonably suspect of violating our Acceptable Use Policy or section 11;

12.2.5.           We may contact third parties and disclose details of the Restricted Activities in the manner set out in our Privacy Policy;

12.2.6.           We may request information from you or otherwise update inaccurate Information you provided us;

12.2.7.           We may refuse to provide our Services to you in the future;

12.2.8.           We may hold your funds to the extent and for so long as reasonably needed to protect against the risk of liability. You acknowledge that, as a non-exhaustive guide:

12.2.9.           JAD's risk of liability in respect of card-funded payments that you receive can last until the risk of a Chargeback closing in favour of the payer/buyer (as determined by card scheme rules) has passed. This depends on certain factors, including, without limitation:

12.2.9.a.               The type of goods or services for which you receive payment; or

12.2.9.b.               The timeframe for delivery of the goods or performance of the services for which you receive payment (e.g. sales of event tickets months in advance of the event date can present a higher and more enduring risk of Chargebacks than sales of most other items or services);

12.2.9.c.                JAD's risk of liability in respect of a Claim or Dispute arising from a payment that you receive can last for the time that it takes for the parties to close the Claim or Dispute and all appeals associated with that Claim or Dispute;

12.2.9.d.               JAD's risk of liability in respect of any event of insolvency that you suffer can last for as long as and to the extent that laws applicable to your insolvency restrict JAD from taking legal action against you; and

12.2.9.e.               If you allow your Account to have a balance reflecting an amount owing to JAD, JAD's risk of liability can last for the time and to the extent that you owe that amount to JAD.

12.2.10.        We may take legal action against you.

 

12.3.      Account Closure and Limited Access. At our sole discretion we may close your Account and terminate this Agreement with you at our convenience by providing you with two months prior notice. We may also close your Account and terminate this Agreement at any time where you are in breach of the terms of this Agreement.

 

12.3.1.           If we close your Account, we will provide you with notice of Account closure and where practicable, the reasons for closing your Account, together with the ability to withdraw any undisputed funds that we are holding.

 

12.3.2.           If we suspect that your Account has been accessed without your authorisation, we may also suspend, or limit, your access to your Account or the Services (such as limiting access to any of your Funding Sources, and your ability to send money, make withdrawals, or remove financial Information). If we otherwise limit access to your Account, we will provide you with notice and opportunity to request restoration of access if appropriate.

 

12.4.      Reserves. JAD, in its sole discretion, may place a Reserve on funds held in your Account when JAD reasonably believes (based on the information available to JAD at the time of taking the Reserve and what in its sole discretion it regards as an acceptable level of risk to JAD under all the circumstances) there may be a higher than acceptable level of risk associated with your Account.

 

12.4.1.           If JAD places a Reserve on funds in your Account, the funds will be held in your Account and those funds will be shown as "pending" in your JAD Balance.

 

12.4.2.           If your Account is subject to a Reserve, JAD will provide you with a notice specifying the terms of the Reserve. The terms may require that a certain percentage of the amounts received into your Account are held for a certain period of time, or that a certain amount of money is held in reserve, or anything else that JAD determines is necessary to protect against the risk associated with your Account.

 

12.4.3.           JAD may change the terms of the Reserve at any time by providing you with notice of the new terms.

 

12.4.4.           You may close your Account if you object to the Reserve.

 

12.4.5.           If your Account is closed for any reason, we have the right to hold the Reserve for up to 180 Days. When managing risk for Accounts, we may also limit the amount you can immediately withdraw or change the speed or the method of payment for withdrawals, set-off amounts from your Balance and/or require that you, or a person associated with you, enter into other forms of security arrangements with us (for example, by providing a guarantee or requiring you to deposit funds with us as security for your obligations to us or third parties). You also agree to undertake, at your own expense, any further action (including, without limitation, executing any necessary documents and registering any form of document reasonably required by us to allow us to perfect any form of security interest or otherwise) required to establish a Reserve or other form of security in a manner reasonably determined by us.

 

12.5.      Payment Hold

12.5.1.           You agree that if either:

12.5.1.a.               you receive a payment that involves Transaction Risk; or

12.5.1.b.               there may be a higher than acceptable level of risk or exposure associated with your Account (based on the information available to JAD at the relevant time and what in its sole discretion it regards as an acceptable level of risk or exposure to JAD under all the circumstances).

JAD may in its sole discretion (acting reasonably) place a hold on that or any payment. If JAD places a hold on funds in your Account, we will notify you about it (including, without limitation, how long the hold may last) - the funds will be held in your Account and those funds will be shown as "pending" in your JAD Balance. We may notify you about the hold through authorised third parties (such as partner platforms on which you transact).

12.5.2.           JAD will release the hold made on your payment under this provision when JAD determines that the Transaction Risk; or risk or exposure associated with your Account, no longer exists. Please note that, notwithstanding the above, if you receive a Dispute, Claim, Chargeback, or Reversal on the transaction payment subject to the hold, the funds (or an amount equal to the relevant payment) may be held in your Account until the matter is resolved pursuant to this Agreement.

12.5.3.           You agree to provide to JAD any information as JAD may reasonably request to allow JAD to determine whether the Transaction Risk or risk or exposure to your Account has passed. You may close your Account if you object to the hold under this provision. If your Account is closed for any reason, JAD has the right to hold a payment under this provision for a period of up to 180 days from the date the complete obligations under the contract for sale (to which the payment in question relates) have been discharged.

 

12.6.      Information about you

12.6.1.           JAD reserves the right to request additional information from you, other than what is referred to in this Agreement, to allow it to comply with its anti-money laundering obligations.

12.6.2.           You agree to comply with any request for further information as we reasonably require to enable us to comply with our anti-money laundering obligations. This may include, without limitation, requiring you to fax, email or otherwise provide to us certain identification documents.

12.6.3.           You also agree to provide us, upon our reasonable request and at your own expense, information about your finance and operations, including, without limitation, your most recent financial statements (certified or otherwise) and counterparty processing statements (if applicable).

 

13. Errors and Unauthorised Transactions

13.1.      Identifying Errors and/or Unauthorised Transactions.

13.1.1.           You can inspect your transaction history at any time by logging in to your Account on the JAD website and clicking the "History" tab.

13.1.2.           It is very important that you immediately notify JAD if you have reason to believe any of the following activities have occurred: (i) there has been an unauthorised transaction sent from your Account; (ii) there has been unauthorised access to your Account; (iii) your password or PIN has been compromised; (iv) any device you have used to access the Services has been lost, stolen or deactivated, or (v) someone has transferred or may transfer money from your Account without your permission (collectively called "Improper Account Access").

13.1.3.           You must also immediately notify us if you have reason to believe that any other error has occurred on your Account.

13.1.4.           In order for you to notify JAD immediately of any of the above events, we strongly recommend that you monitor your Account closely on a regular basis.

 

13.1.5.           We will not seek to hold you liable for any unauthorised use of your Account by any person provided that we are satisfied that you have not acted deliberately so as to enable any third person to gain access to your JAD ID and/or password/PIN or to your device while you are logged into the Services.

 

13.1.6.           We will hold you liable for unauthorised use of your Account if we have evidence that suggests: you acted deliberately so as to enable any third person to gain access to your JAD ID and/or password/PIN; you acted fraudulently; or you have with intent or gross negligence failed to comply with your obligations to use your Payment Instrument in the manner set out in this Agreement.

 

13.2.      Notifying JAD of Errors Unauthorised Transactions and/or misappropriated or unauthorised use of your Payment Instrument.

13.2.1.           You must notify us if you believe there has been or will be an error, unauthorised transaction, misappropriated or unauthorised use of your Payment Instrument or your Account, by telephoning JAD Customer Service at the telephone number shown on the JAD website(s), contacting us using this report form or writing to JAD, Attn: Error Resolution Department, # 1 Fern Street, Greenlands, Basseterre, St. Kitts.

 

13.2.2.           If you initially provide information to us via the telephone, we may require that you send your complaint or question in writing within ten Business Days after the phone contact.

13.3.1.           We will advise you of the results of our investigation within 20 Business Days after we receive your notice.

13.3.2.           If we have made an error, we will correct it promptly.

 

13.3.3.           If we need more time, however, we may take up to 60 Days to investigate your complaint or question.

 

13.3.4.           If we decide that we need more time, we will provisionally re-credit your Account for the amount you think is in error within ten Business Days after we receive your notice; so that you will have use of the E-money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation.

 

13.3.5.           If you initially provided information to us via the telephone and we do not receive your complaint or question in writing within ten Business Days after your oral notice, we are not required to provisionally re-credit your Account.

 

13.3.6.           At the end of our investigation, we will advise you of the results within three Business Days. If we determine that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation and we may debit any provisional credit that we previously credited to you in relation to the alleged error. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation (and this will not attract the Records Request Fee set out in Schedule 1).

 

13.4.      Liability for Unauthorised Transactions.

13.4.1.           If you report that there has been an Improper Account Access related to your Account, and there is no evidence to suggest fraud or deliberate or grossly negligent behaviour by you, we will reimburse you in full for all unauthorised transactions sent from your Account provided that you have informed us of the Improper Account Access without undue delay and in any event, no later than 60 days after the first Improper Account Access transaction was executed.

13.4.2.           Where we believe in our reasonable opinion that further investigation is required to ascertain more clearly the circumstances surrounding the reported Improper Account Access, we will follow the same process as set out in section 13.3 above for such investigation

 

13.5.      Errors.

13.5.1.           If we discover a processing error, we will rectify the error.

13.5.2.           If the error resulted in your receiving less money than you were entitled to, JAD will credit your Account for the difference.

 

13.5.3.           If the error results in you receiving more money than you were entitled to, JAD may debit the extra funds from your JAD Account.

 

13.5.4.           If the error resulted in our not completing a transaction on time or in the correct amount, we will be liable to refund any amount as a result of carrying out a defective or non-executed payment transaction and for your losses or damages directly and reasonably foreseeably caused by this failure, unless:

13.5.4.a.               through no fault of ours, you did not have enough available funds to complete the transaction,

13.5.4.b.               our system was not working properly and you knew about the breakdown when you started the transaction, or

13.5.4.c.                circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood or loss of Internet connection) prevented the transaction, despite our reasonable precautions.

13.6.      Notwithstanding any other term of this Agreement, JAD will not be held liable for the non-execution or defective execution of a payment transaction (whether initiated by yourself or another JAD customer) if you have failed to notify JAD of such an incorrectly executed payment transaction without undue delay, or in any event no later than within 6 months after the debit date, on becoming aware of such incorrectly executed payment transaction.

Schedule 1. Table of Fees

Fees depend on whether you are making a Commercial Transaction, JAD Business Payment or a Personal Transaction and whether that transaction is Cross Border or Domestic.

 

A "Commercial Transaction" involves buying and selling goods and services, or payments received when you "request money" using JAD.

A "Personal Transaction" involves sending money (initiated from the "Pay" tab, and receiving money into your JAD Account from, friends and family without making a purchase (that is, the payment is not for goods or services). If you are selling goods or services, you may not ask the buyer to send you a Personal Transaction payment for the purchase. If you do so, JAD may remove your ability to accept any or all payments for Personal Transactions. Please also note that:

when a fee applies to a Personal Transaction, the sender by default pays the fee, but certain functionality may require the recipient to pay the fee instead (for instance where that functionality allows the sender to decide that the recipient pays the fee or the recipient initiated the request for the funds). If you send a Personal Transaction payment from a third party (non JAD) website or application then JAD may allow the third party to determine if the sender or recipient of a Personal Transaction payment will pay the Personal Transaction fee. This will be disclosed to you by the third party.

 

A "Domestic" transaction is a transaction where both the sender and receiver execute a payment between JAD Accounts registered in the same country or region.

A "Cross Border" transaction occurs when the sender and receiver execute a payment between JAD Accounts which are not registered in the same country or region.

 

Note: reference to a percentage fee rate below refers to an amount equal to that percentage of the payment transaction amount.
