5.2       We will be entitled to assume that a transaction has been authorised by You (and You have therefore given Your consent) where either:

5.2.1    In the case of a Physical Card;

5.2.1.1 the magnetic strip on the Card was swiped by the retailer or the Card was inserted into a chip & PIN device; or

5.2.1.2 the Card PIN was entered or a sales slip was signed;

5.2.2    in the case of either physical or virtual Card; or

5.2.2.1 relevant information was supplied to the retailer that allows them to process the transaction, for example providing the retailer with the 3-digit security code on the back of the Card in the case of an internet or other non face-to-face transaction.

5.2.2.2 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 You have authorised a transaction, 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 European Economic Area We will execute any transaction:

5.4.1.1 in euro;

5.4.1.2 in sterling or Gibraltar pounds within Gibraltar or between Gibraltar and the United Kingdom in sterling; and

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 merchant has failed to seek authorisation for the transaction.  In these cases, We will attempt to recover some or all of the money from the merchant 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 person 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.

Changes in the exchange rates may be applied immediately and without notice. You can ask Us for information about the exchange rate used after the transaction has been completed by contacting Our customer services team in accordance with clause15. You will also be notified of any applicable exchange rate for each transaction in Your online account, which is updated on a regular basis during each day..

5.10     Normally, We will be able to support transactions 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.  However, We cannot guarantee this will be the case, and in certain circumstances – for example a serious technical problem – We may be unable to receive or complete transactions.
