The Client undertakes to pay the Institution for the services provided and the operations performed.
The provisions of the General Service Agreement and the Account Agreement supplement this Agreement and apply to both the matters covered by this Agreement (such as termination or liability) and matters non-discussed hereunder (such as applicable law or amendment of the Agreement), as the context requires.
3. Issuance of Cards
The Card is issued to the Client already in possession of the Account and upon the Client's submission of the relevant application, selection of the Card type, submission of the necessary data on the Website and acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. The Card will not be issued if there is a debt in the Account or insufficient funds for payments.
When ordering a Card, you will have to create a Card PIN on the Website and you will be fully responsible for its security and confidentiality. You can always check the PIN code on the Website.
The Card is sent by post to the address specified by the Client. You will be notified of its delivery on the Website or in another agreed manner (e.g. an SMS message). If you do not receive the Card within 30 (thirty) days, you must inform us.
The Client may order both one Card and additional Cards or a Virtual Card and have them at the same time. We may limit the number of Cards you have.
The Institution has the right to refuse to issue the Card for any reason.
If the Card is ordered for a Cardholder who is a person other than the Client, the latter must familiarise the Cardholder with the Agreement, the Account Agreement and the General Service Agreement and all of them shall apply to the Cardholder. The Client assumes full responsibility for the Cardholder's actions or omissions.
4. Using your Card
Upon receipt of the Card you have to:
Check that your data is correct on the Card. If not, you must inform the Institution and do not activate the Card.
Sign on the reverse of the Card in the space provided.
Activate the Card on the Website by logging in to your account.
The Card can be used to pay for goods and services at the points of sale or provision of services or other service points where it is technically possible to perform such transactions.
If the Card supports the Contactless Billing feature, you can enable and disable it on the Website by logging in to your account. Before performing the first contactless payment transaction, we will ask you to perform the transaction confirmed by the PIN code beforehand.
The Card can also be used to pay for online shopping at electronic points of sale for goods and services. To use this feature, you may need to turn it on, on the Website, where you can turn it off as well.
The Card can be used for payments in foreign countries if technically possible. The website may allow to enable or disable this feature. We may impose restrictions on the use of the Card in certain countries.
You can also withdraw cash at ATMs with the Card. The website may allow to enable or disable this feature.
Visa Europe Association Cards (Visa) can only be used to pay for services or services marked with the Visa logo. Cards of other associations (e.g. (MasterCard) (if we issue such cards) can only be used for payments at the places of supply or service of goods or services marked by the respective association.
When paying with the Card, the funds in your Account linked to the Card are used. Payments shall be made in the currency in which the said Account is maintained.
You can check the balance of the Account linked to the Card on the Website, ATMs or other places, if technically possible.

You may use the card only for legitimate purposes and only in good faith.
Please note that in some cases, due to system upgrades or other disruptions, the Card may not operate at some time or its functionality may be limited (for example, it is not possible to pay online or withdraw cash at an ATM). In such cases, we do not accept liability for any losses incurred.
5. Confirmation of the Card payment transaction
Your consent to perform a payment transaction with the Card (authorisation) is given if:
You confirm it by entering the Card PIN code.
For contactless payments – by touching the Card to the payment terminal and performing the actions specified in the electronic card reader. If the contactless payment limit is exceeded, the transaction may need to be additionally confirmed with a PIN code.
Swipe the card on the electronic card reader and sign the issued receipt.
After inserting the Card into the self-service electronic card reader, you perform the actions specified therein without entering the PIN code (for example, by paying a toll).
When paying online at electronic points of sale and services, you enter the Card data (e.g. name, surname, number, validity period, CVC2/CVV2 code).
You enter into an agreement with the provider of goods or services physically or online at electronic points of delivery of goods and services and agree to initiate a payment transaction by debiting the Account by transferring Card data to it (e.g. full name, number, validity period, CVC2/CVV2 code).
You provide the Card data (e.g. full name, number, validity period, CVC2/CVV2 code) to the provider of goods or services physically or online at electronic points of supply of goods and services.
Depending on the technical solutions applied by the supplier of the goods or services and the security methods you have chosen on the Website (if permitted), the above consent may need to be additionally confirmed by one of the Identification Means or 3D security specified during the transaction. If, in our opinion, the use of such security is necessary and you are not using it, we may refuse to execute the payment transaction.
All of the above actions have the same legal effect as the documents you have signed or written instructions to confirm the relevant payment transaction.
If you have confirmed a payment transaction through one of the above steps, you cannot cancel it. You can only cancel a transaction that is due in the future (such as a monthly service fee), but you must notify the supplier of goods or services at least 2 business days before the due date and, if necessary, inform us. We do not accept responsibility for cancellation of such transactions.
You are responsible for all consequences arising from your consent to perform a payment transaction with the Card. Therefore:
Make sure to always check the details of the payment transaction before giving the above consent.
Keep a document confirming such a transaction (e.g. a check, a payment receipt).
Only give this consent yourself, and if the Card information needs to be physically read, make sure it is done in your presence.
If you notice a payment transaction for which you have not given consent (unauthorised transaction), you must immediately notify us via the Website or contact the person’s specified therein.
We will only refund the money debited from your Account linked to the Card if you, after becoming aware of improperly executed or unauthorised payment transactions with your Card without your consent for which you may make claims under this Agreement, report it to us immediately but no later than within 13 (thirteen) months from the date of debiting the funds, and if you are a business client – not later than within 60 (sixty) days.
6. Execution of a Card payment transaction
If consent has been given, provided for in clause 5.1, the payment transaction (settlement) is performed:
After you reserve funds in the Account linked to the Card and after receiving confirmation from the beneficiary of the funds, debiting the corresponding amount from this Account. If we do not receive confirmation within 15 (fifteen) days, we will cancel the reservation. The applicable fees set out in the Standard Fees are not reserved at the time of booking.
Or by debiting the relevant amount from the Account linked to the Card upon receipt of the confirmation from the beneficiary, without applying the reservation of funds. In this case, payment may occur immediately after your consent has been given or later.
If the balance of the Account linked to the Card becomes negative due to the transactions performed with the Card, you must cover it.
We may refuse to execute a payment transaction with the Card if:
There are insufficient funds in the Account linked to the Card to perform the payment transaction and pay the relevant fee for it.
We have suspicions of illegal use of the Card or suspicions of relevant security breaches.
You do not comply with the Agreement or other contract entered into with us.
We consider the payment transaction to be suspicious.
We cannot perform it due to errors, malfunctions, upgrades, or acts or omissions of third parties.
If the payment transaction is not due to our fault (e.g. inaccurate details, closed account) and/or the amount of the payment order is refunded to you, we will not be liable and will not compensate for any losses incurred (e.g. we do not refund the fees or expenses paid for the transaction in connection with the refund).
In the event of an unauthorised payment transaction due to the use of a lost or stolen Card or illegal misappropriation of the Card, you may incur losses of up to EUR 50 (fifty) if you are a consumer, or all losses if you are a business client.
If you acted in good faith and could not notice the loss, theft, misappropriation or unauthorised payment transaction of the Card prior to the payment transaction due to our fault, you will not incur any losses due to unauthorised payment transactions.
You shall bear all losses due to unauthorised payment transactions with the Card if they result from fraudulent, careless or intentional failure to comply with your obligations under this Agreement.
We do not assume any liability if you have not been able to use the Card due to the actions or omissions of third parties, if you use the Card illegally or fraudulently, and if the goods or services you purchased were defective after payment transaction or the provider did not allow you to pay with the Card, or did not provide a discount, even though you should have received it, or you suffered any other inconvenience or loss as a result of the actions of third parties.
7. Currency exchange with the Card during a payment transaction
You can make a payment transaction with the Card (pay) in any currency, but the funds from the Account linked to the Card will always be debited in euro. The currency of the payment transaction is converted into euro at the exchange rate set by the relevant association with which the Card is branded (e.g. Visa Europe Association for Visa Cards or other associations if the Card is differently branded) valid on the day of processing of the transaction. If provided for in the Standard Fees, a currency exchange fee may also apply.
In case the reservation is made in case of payment by Card, the exchange rate applied at the time of reservation may differ from the one that will be applied at the time of debiting the funds.
We do not accept any liability for losses incurred by you in connection with currency conversion or exchange rate fluctuations.
8. Limits for card payment transactions
Each Card is subject to the standard cash withdrawal and payment transaction (settlement) limits indicated in the Standard Fees or on the Website. You can change them on the Website yourself, but only up to the maximum allowed.
We may refuse to increase or prevent the increase of these limits.
We may also change these limits at any time, even without notifying you.
If you exceed the limits, we may not execute the payment transaction instructions provided by you.
The Client must pay the fees set out in the Standard Fees for the issuance, renewal, servicing and any payment transactions with the Card or for related actions, which are automatically debited from the Account linked to the Card. The Client must ensure that there is always a sufficient balance in the Account to cover these fees.
These fees are debited at the time of payment transaction (settlement), depending on the transaction, together with it or separately, they can also be deducted both at the same time and at different times.
If there is a fee for using the Card, it will be debited from the Account linked to the Card on a day of our choice, once a month, for the previous period of the month.
The fees specified in the Standard Fees shall be paid in the currency specified therein.
If there are insufficient funds in the Account linked to the Card to debit the fees, they may be debited from any other Client's Account.
Please note that you may be subject to additional charges imposed by suppliers of goods and services, Internet service providers, owners of relevant equipment or service providers, for which we accept no liability.
You must store the card and all associated personalised security data (e.g. PIN code, login details) and take all necessary steps to ensure that it is not disclosed to third parties.
If you become aware of the theft of the Card, unlawful interception or other loss of the Card, the payment transaction made or attempted by the Card without your consent, any other illegal activity related to the Card, or that personalised security data relating to the Card has become or may have become known to other persons, you must immediately inform us on the Website or the contacts specified therein.
The Card may be used only by the person whose name and surname (together with the data of the legal entity, if the Account holder is a legal entity) is indicated on the Card and whose signature is entered on the Card. Use the card responsibly and in accordance with all security measures, such as:

When entering a PIN or data related to an Identifier or 3D security, make sure that no one sees it, and that the device you are entering the data into is not damaged in any way or has malware installed.
If you do not use the Card, PIN code, Means of Identification or 3D security responsibly and have not complied with the above or other security measures and as a result have an unauthorised payment transaction with the Card, your conduct is considered to be gross negligence and you assume full responsibility for this and we do not compensate you for any losses incurred.
If you provide and register your Card details online at e-wallets (e.g. Paypal), e-commerce and service outlets (e.g. Amazon, Aliexpress), e-accounts (e.g. Google, social networks), you enter into agreements for periodic withdrawals for goods or services received (e.g. Netflix, Spotify) or in any other way present them or register the Card with any of your electronic accounts, you are solely responsible for all payment transactions, when you log in or receive Card data from your electronic account, and we assume no responsibility for such transactions. Therefore, make sure to register the Card with any of your electronic accounts responsibly and in compliance with all security measures, for example:
