4.2. You must notify us of any change in your Personal Details as soon as possible by contacting Customer Services or updating the details in your Online Account.

6.2. Unless we inform you otherwise, you can use the Card at any Merchant who accepts the Scheme to carry out Transactions.
6.3. You must always ensure that you have sufficient Available Balance for each Transaction you authorise (including value added tax and other taxes, duties and applicable fees).

If for any reason a Transaction is carried out but its amount exceeds the Available Balance, you must pay us the deficit immediately, and if you fail to do so after receiving a notification from us, we reserve the right to take all necessary steps, including legal action, to recover this deficit.
6.5. There are certain circumstances where a Merchant may require you to have an Available Balance greater than the value of the Transaction you wish to make and you will only be charged for the actual and final value of the Transaction. Merchants may request this as they may need to access more funds than you initially planned to spend for example, when making hotel or rental car reservations. In the event that a Merchant has prior authorization on your Card, you will not have access to the relevant funds until the Transaction is completed or, if sooner, up to a period of 30 days. We will only block access to the exact amount of funds authorised by you.
6.6. Your Card cannot be used where such Merchants are unable to obtain online authorisation that you have sufficient Available Balance for the Transaction (for example, Transactions made on trains, ships, some in-flight purchases and tollbooths). We accept no liability if a Merchant refuses to accept payment using the Card.

- pre-authorised regular payments; or
- transactions at self-service petrol pumps;
- gambling; or
- any illegal purposes.
7. Authorising Transactions
7.1. You will need to give your consent to each Transaction so that we can check it is genuine by, where applicable, a) using your PIN or other security code personal to you; b) signing a sales voucher; c) providing the Card details and/or providing any other details personal to you and/or your Card. Once you have given such consent to the Transaction, it will be deemed to be authorised.
7.2. The time of receipt of a Transaction order is when we receive it. If a Transaction order is received after 4pm on a Business Day then it will be deemed to have been received on the next Business day.
7.3. Once a Transaction has been authorised by you and received by us, it cannot be revoked. Where a Merchant’s payment service provider is located within the EEA and the payment services being carried out are in the currency of an EEA Member State, we shall ensure the cash transfer to the Merchant’s payment service provider within 4 Business Days following the day on which the Transaction order is received.
7.4. Certain Merchants may not accept payments made through the Card and we accept no liability for this: it is your responsibility to check the restrictions of each Merchant.

Please contact Customer Services to notify us of any problems you are experiencing using your Card or Account and we will try to resolve these as soon as possible.

12.8 In the event of a non-executed or defectively executed Transaction, we will make immediate efforts to trace the Transaction and will notify you of the outcome. We will not charge you for such efforts. In the event that we are liable for such Transaction, we will refund the amount, together with the amount of any resulting charges to which you may be subject, without undue delay.

12.10.1 the exact Transaction amount was not specified when you authorised the payment; and

If you do not have sufficient Available Balance, you must repay us the amount immediately on demand.
