3.Using your Gift Card
You can use the Gift Card at any merchant who accepts Mastercard prepaid cards to make purchases in-store.
Before using the Gift Card it is your responsibility to ensure that there are sufficient funds loaded on it to cover your purchase. You will not be able to use your Gift Card after its Expiry Date.
We will deduct the value of your transactions from the balance on your Gift Card as soon as they are made and we will also deduct any applicable fees as soon as they become due; see our Fees clause below for details of any applicable fees. While the Cardholder may use the Gift Card, the Gift Card always remains our property.
For fraud prevention reasons, your Gift Card use may be queried and we may block further usage, either completely or only in certain territories or merchants. In such circumstances, you can contact customer services.
We may ask you to stop using your Gift Card, to return it to us or destroy it. We may at any time suspend, restrict or cancel your Gift Card or refuse to issue or replace a Gift Card for reasons relating to the following:
- We are concerned about the security of your account or Gift Card(s) we have issued to you;
- we suspect your account is being used in an unauthorised or fraudulent manner; or
- we need to do so to comply with applicable law.
If we do this, we will tell you as soon as we can or are permitted to do so. Like other payment cards, we cannot guarantee a retailer will accept your Gift Card. We may also refuse to pay a transaction:
- If we are concerned about security of your Gift Card or we suspect your Gift Card is being used in an unauthorised or fraudulent manner;
- If sufficient funds are not loaded on your Gift Card at the time of a transaction to cover the amount of the transaction and any applicable fees;
- If we have reasonable grounds to believe that you are acting in breach of these T&Cs;
- If we believe that a transaction is potentially suspicious or illegal (for example, if we believe that a transaction is being made fraudulently); or
- Because of errors, failures (whether mechanical or otherwise) or refusals by merchants, payment processors or payment schemes processing transactions.
If we refuse to authorise a transaction, we will immediately tell you why, if practicable, unless it would be unlawful for us to do so. You may correct any information we hold and which may have caused us to refuse a transaction by contacting customer services.
4. Authorising Transactions
Subject to the features of the particular Gift Card, the authorisation of a transaction can include authorising any single transaction, or pre-authorising future transactions of a certain or uncertain amount.
A Gift Card transaction will be regarded as authorised where you authorise the transaction at the point of sale by following the instructions provided by the merchant or retailer. This may include:
- Signing a sales voucher; or
- Providing the Gift Card details and/ or providing any other details as requested;
- Making a contactless payment where the Gift Card features so allow.
Authorisation for a transaction may not be withdrawn (or revoked) by you after the time it is received by the merchant. We will pay the funds required by the retailer or merchant to cover the transactions authorised by you within three (3) days of us receiving their request. A transaction will be received at the time we receive the transaction instruction from the merchant acquirer.
5. Expiry, suspension and cancellation of your Gift Card
The Gift Card will expire on the Valid Thru date displayed on the card (the Expiry Date). After the Expiry Date, you cannot use the Gift Card but you can access any unspent funds through the redemption process specified in clause 6 of these T&Cs.
We may also cancel these T&Cs or suspend your Gift Card or account immediately if we believe your Gift Card is deliberately being used by you to commit fraud or for other illegal purposes. If we do this, we will tell you as soon as we are permitted to do so. If we cancel your Gift Card, you must tell us what you want us to do with any unused funds within three (3) months of the date we notify you that your Gift Card is cancelled. If your Gift Card is cancelled, we will immediately block your Gift Card so it cannot be used. You will not be entitled to a refund of money you have already spent on authorised transactions or pending transactions or any fees for use of the Gift Card before the Gift Card is cancelled or expires.
You can cancel your Gift Card by contacting customer services. If you cancel your Gift Card, once all transactions and fees have been deducted, we will arrange for any unused funds to be refunded to you; see clause 10 below for further information. A Redemption Fee may be charged (see Fees clause below).
6. Replacement and Redemption during and after the Expiry Date and Redemption Fee.
Any available balance of the Gift Card may be redeemed at any time up to six (6) years after the Expiry Date. In order to do so, the Cardholder must contact customer services, present full identification and complete a redemption form provided by customer services or Issuer.
During the first twelve (12) months following the Expiry Date, the redemption of any remaining funds on a Gift Card will be free of charge. However, if the Cardholder requests a redemption while the Gift Card is active, i.e. before the Expiry Date, or after more than twelve (12) months from the Expiry Date, a Redemption Fee of NOK150 will be deducted from the value of the redemption remitted to the Cardholder. Any redemption will be remitted only to the Cardholder by transfer to the bank account nominated by the Cardholder on the redemption form. A request for redemption may take up to thirty (30) days to process, though we will try to process the request sooner if possible.
8. Lost or stolen Gift Card and unauthorised or incorrectly executed payments
You must tell customer services without undue delay if you know or suspect that a Gift Card is lost or stolen or if you think a transaction has been incorrectly executed.
We will refund any incorrectly executed transaction immediately unless we have any reason to believe that the incident has been caused by a breach of these T&Cs, negligence or we have reasonable grounds to suspect fraudulent activity. However, you will bear the loss, up to NOK 500 in total, if the transaction results from the use of a lost or stolen Gift Card.
However, if investigations show that any disputed transaction was authorised by you, or you have acted fraudulently or negligently (for example by failing to keep your Gift Card secure), you may be liable for any loss you or we suffer because of the use of the Gift Card.
9. Our liability
We will not be liable for any loss arising from:
- Any cause which results from abnormal or unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which would have been unavoidable despite all our efforts to the contrary; or
- A retailer refusing to accept your Gift Card (unless we have acted with gross negligence or wilfully in this regard); or
- Our compliance with legal and regulatory requirements; or
- Loss or corruption of data unless caused by our gross negligence or wilful default.
10. Your Rights to Redemption of Funds and Refunding of Transactions on Your Gift Card
You have the right to redeem the funds on your Gift Card at any time in whole or in part in accordance with the process described in clause 6 of this document.
We will not redeem the value of the funds on your Gift Card to you if your request for redemption is more than six (6) years after the date of termination or expiry of these T&Cs.
Clause 13 contains a summary of applicable fees, including redemption fees.
11. Refunding Transactions
You may be entitled to claim a refund in relation to transactions where:
- The transactions were not authorised under these T&Cs;
- We are responsible for a transaction which was incorrectly executed and you notified us in accordance with clause 8 above;
- A pre-authorised transaction, if applicable, did not specify the exact amount at the time of its authorisation and the amount charged by a supplier is more than you could reasonably have expected, taking into account normal spending patterns on the Gift Card or the circumstances of the transaction.
A claim for a refund in the circumstances set out above will not be accepted if the amount of the transaction was notified to you at least four (4) weeks before the transaction date or if the claim is made more than eight (8) weeks after being debited from your account.
We will arrange an electronic transfer to a bank account nominated by you. However, to enable us to comply with our legal obligations, we may ask you to provide us with certain information before we can process your refund request.
12. Changes to these Terms
We may change these T&Cs at any time by notifying you on the Website at least two (2) months before the change is due to take effect. The most current version of these T&Cs will always be available on the Website. The change will automatically take effect and you will be taken to have accepted the notified change unless you tell us that you do not agree to the change. In that event, we will treat that as notification that you wish immediately to terminate and in such circumstances, we will refund any balance on the Gift Card in accordance with clause 11 above and you will not be charged a refund fee.
