5.1.Acquiring Payment Orders by Cards on the Payment Account
The Payment Account may be funded by Card (or any other Payment Method accepted by the Service Provider), in one or more instalments. When the User wishes to carry out such an operation, they must identify themselves on the Website by indicating their User identifier (valid email address) and password or by logging in via their Facebook account. The order for the transfer of funds is entered on a dedicated Payment Page. For any payment, the User may be asked to enter a single-use code notified on their mobile phone to the institution issuing the Card. If necessary, it is the Service Provider’s responsibility to refuse any payment at its own discretion and without this decision giving rise to any compensation whatsoever.
The funds transfer transaction is carried out by the institution issuing the Card. Any dispute of such a transfer must be notified to the aforementioned institution. The Service Provider is not entitled to cancel such a transfer. The Cardholder is informed that the acceptance of a Card payment order by the Service Provider does not guarantee the receipt of the corresponding funds by the Account Holder on their Account. The registration of funds on the Account Holder’s Payment Account is subject to actual receipt by the Service Provider of the funds collected minus the fees agreed in the Tariff Conditions.
In the absence of receipt of funds for technical reasons, the Service Provider shall use its best efforts to rectify the transaction. If the funds are not received for any other reason, the Service Provider shall inform the Account Holder as soon as possible of its inability to credit its Account with the expected amount, so that the Account Holder may contact the User.
In the event that the transfer of funds from the Account Holder’s Account is cancelled by the Card issuer following a dispute by the User, the Account Holder agrees that the Service Provider may reverse any Card funds transfer transaction by debiting the corresponding amount from the Payment Account. The Cardholder acknowledges that such a dispute may, in particular, be brought to the attention of the Card issuer until the expiry of a maximum period of thirteen (13) months following the date of debit of the account with which the Card is associated. In the absence of sufficient funds in the Account in order to carry out such a reversal, the Service Provider may suspend or cancel any Payment Transaction initiated by the Account Holder or an agent, or, where applicable, assume the rights of the Account Holder and proceed to recover the amounts due by the User by any means.
5.2.Receipt of Transfer to the Payment Account
The Account Holder authorises the Service Provider to receive on its Payment Account SEPA credit transfer transactions in euros from a bank or payment account opened in the records of a Third-Party PSP. The funds are credited to their Payment Account by the Service Provider as soon as possible following their actual receipt by the Service Provider.
Once the funds have been paid to the Account Holder’s Payment Account, the Service Provider provides the Account Holder with a summary of the received transfer transaction, including the following information: the reference of the payment transaction, a reference to identify the payer, the amount of the transaction, and the credit’s value date.
5.3.Implementation of a Transfer Transaction Debiting the Payment Account
The Account Holder may transmit SEPA or international Transfer Orders to a Beneficiary’s account held by a Third-Party PSP.
When the Account Holder wishes to carry out a Transfer Transaction, the Account Holder identifies themself in their Personal Space by indicating their Identification Data and, where applicable, by following the Strong Authentication procedure indicated. It indicates on the Payment Page: the amount of the Payment Transaction, the currency, the Payment Account to be debited, the implementation date of the Order and any other required information. In the absence of any indication of date, the Transfer Order is deemed to be immediate. The Account Holder must also follow the Authentication (or Strong Authentication, as the case may be) procedure specified by the Provider.
The Account Holder may at any time send a request to implement a Transfer Order to a Beneficiary designated by it who has a bank or payment account with a Third-Party Payment Service Provider. The Account Holder must provide the reason for each transfer and comply with the Authentication (or Strong Authentication, as the case may be) procedure indicated by the Service Provider. The Account Holder gives irrevocable consent to the Payment Order by clicking on the “Validation” tab (“Date of Receipt”). The receipt of the Payment Order is confirmed on the Account Holder’s Personal Space. The Account Holder may not withdraw any Order after the date on which it is deemed to be irrevocable, i.e., from the Date of Receipt.
Before transmitting a Transfer Order, the Account Holder (or the Platform acting on its behalf) must ensure that it has sufficient funds available in its Account to cover the amount of the Payment Transaction and related fees as agreed in the Tariff Conditions. Where applicable, the Account Holder shall credit its Account before the Order can be validly transmitted to the Service Provider for implementation. It is hereby expressly agreed that Payment Orders will be executed no later than the end of the Business Day following the Date of Receipt of the Order by the Service Provider (and on the agreed implementation date for deferred or standing order transfers). Any payment order received after 4 p.m. by the Service Provider is deemed to have been received on the next Business Day. If the Date of Receipt is not a Business Day, the Payment Order is deemed to have been received on the next Business Day.
For each Transfer Transaction, the Account Holder may request the Service Provider to provide information on a Durable Medium relating to the maximum implementation period for that specific transaction, the fees to be paid by the Account Holder and, where applicable, the details of such fees. The Service Provider may refuse to implement an incomplete or erroneous Transfer Order. The Account Holder shall re-issue the Order to ensure its compliance. The Service Provider may, in addition, block a Transfer Order in the event of serious suspicion of fraudulent use of the Account, unauthorised use of the Account, breach of the security of the Account, in the event of an asset-freezing measure by an administrative authority or for any other reason.
In the event of a refusal to implement a Transfer Order or the blocking of a Transfer Order, the Service Provider shall inform the Account Holder by any means. If possible, the Service Provider will indicate to the Account Holder the reasons for the refusal or blocking, unless prohibited by a relevant provision of national or European Union law.
The Holder may at any time send an instruction to cancel a funds transfer in order to refund a User. The Account Holder identifies themselves on the Website by indicating their identifier and password. The Account Holder indicates, in their Personal Space, the amount to be refunded, the currency, the User to be refunded and any other information required.
The refund transaction is implemented by the Service Provider by crediting the Card used by the User or by transfer according to the original payment method, within the limit of the available balance on the Account and within the rules of each network and the SEPA rules within five (5) Business Days following receipt by the Service Provider of the refund request.
5.5.Specific Provisions for Payment Initiation and Account Information Services Provided by Third-Party PSPs Where consent to a Transfer Order is given through a Third-Party PSP providing a payment initiation service, the form of such consent shall be agreed between the Account Holder and such PSP under the terms and conditions agreed between them. The Service Provider is not a party to these terms and conditions and shall not be liable in any way for any dispute arising in connection with the provision of this initiation service by the Third-Party PSP under the said terms and conditions.
The Account Holder may not revoke the payment order after having given their consent for the Third-Party PSP providing the payment initiation service to initiate the payment transaction. Where the unauthorised, non-implemented or incorrectly implemented payment transaction is initiated through a Third-Party PSP providing a payment initiation service, the Service Provider shall immediately, and in any event no later than the end of the next Business Day, refund to the Account Holder the amount of the unauthorised, non-implemented or incorrectly implemented payment transaction and, where applicable, restore the debited Account to the state it would have been in if the unauthorised or incorrectly implemented payment transaction had not taken place. The value date on which the Account Holder’s payment account is credited is no later than the date on which it was debited.
The Account Holder has, in their Personal Space, a statement of the payment transactions carried out on the Payment Account. The Account Holder is invited to read the list of these transactions carefully. Transaction records may also be made available to a Professional Account Holder at other intervals upon specific request. It is specified that for each Transfer Transaction implemented by the Service Provider, the Account Holder will be provided with the following information: the reference number of the Transaction, the identification of the Beneficiary, the amount of the Transaction, the date of receipt of the Order and, where applicable, the fees relating to the implementation of this Transaction.
7. Payment Account Access and Confidentiality of Personalised Security Data
The Payment Account is accessible online in the Personal Space, using Identification Data and in accordance with the requested Authentication (or Strong Authentication, as the case may be) procedure. The Account Holder shall provide Identification Data for each Authorised Person. Each Authorised Person shall agree not to use the name or Identification Data of another person. The Account Holder shall be solely responsible for any use of their identifier.
Each Authorised Person is fully responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of their Identification Data, as well as any other Personalised Security Data that may be assigned by the Service Provider or the Platform. The Account Holder shall take all reasonable steps in order to maintain the confidentiality and security of its Personalised Security Data. The Account Holder also undertakes to make Authorised Persons aware of the confidentiality and security of their own Personalised Security Data.
The Account Holder (and each Authorised Person) agrees not to disclose their Personalised Security Data to third parties. By way of exception, the Account Holder may communicate such information to Third- Party PSPs authorised in a Member State of the European Union or in a State party to the European Economic Area for account information and payment transaction initiation services (as defined in Article 4 of European Directive 2015/2366, referred to as the “PSD2”). The Account Holder shall ensure that such Third-Party PSP is approved for the above services and that they enter their Personalised Security Data in a secure environment.
8. Opposition to Personalised Safety Data
The Account Holder must inform the Platform of the loss or theft of their Personalised Security Data, the misappropriation or any unauthorised use of their Personal Space or related data as soon as they become aware of it in order to request that it be blocked. This declaration must be made:
– by telephone call to the Platform’s Customer Service Department at the number indicated in the General Terms and Conditions of the Website;
– directly by email via the contact form accessible on the Website.
The Service Provider, through the Platform, will immediately carry out the opposition request. The event will be recorded and time-stamped. An opposition number with a time-stamp will be communicated to the Account Holder. A written confirmation of this opposition will be sent via email by the Platform to the Account Holder concerned. The Service Provider shall be responsible for the file from an administrative point of view and shall keep all traces for eighteen (18) months. Upon written request by the Account Holder and before the expiry of this period, the Service Provider will communicate a copy of this opposition.
Any opposition request must be confirmed without delay by the Account Holder concerned, by letter signed by the latter, delivered or sent by registered post, or email, to the Service Provider at the postal address mentioned at the beginning of these Terms and Conditions or at the address indicated in the General Terms and Conditions of the Website.
The Service Provider cannot be held responsible for the consequences of an opposition by fax or email that does not come from the Account Holder. An opposition request is deemed to have been made on the date and time of the actual receipt of the request by the Platform. In the event of theft of the Personalised Security Data or fraudulent use of the Personal Space, the Service Provider is entitled to request, via the Platform, a receipt or a copy of the complaint filed from the Account Holder, who undertakes to respond as soon as possible.
9. Blocking of the Payment Account and Refusal of Access to the Payment Account
The Service Provider reserves the right to block the Payment Account for objectively justified reasons relating to the security of the Payment Account, the presumption of unauthorised or fraudulent use of the Payment Account or the significantly increased risk that the Account Holder will be unable to fulfil its obligation to pay the fees due under this Framework Agreement.
The Account Holder is hereby informed that the Service Provider may deny access to the Payment Account to a Third-Party PSP providing payment initiation or account information services, for objectively justified or documented reasons related to unauthorised or fraudulent access to the Payment Account by that service provider, including the unauthorised or fraudulent initiation of a payment transaction.
In such cases, the Account Holder will be informed in their Personal Space of the blocking of or refusal of access to the Payment Account, and of the reasons for such blocking or refusal. This information will be communicated to the Account Holder, if possible, before the Payment Account is blocked or access is denied and at the latest immediately after the blocking or refusal, unless the provision of this information is not communicable for objectively justified security reasons or is prohibited under another provision of European Union law or relevant national law.
The Service Provider unblocks the Account or restores access to it as soon as the reasons justifying the blocking or refusal of access no longer exist. The Account Holder may request for the Account to be unblocked at any time by contacting the Platform’s Customer Service Department, the contact details of which are indicated in the General Terms and Conditions of the Website. The Account Holder may be requested to define new Identification Data.
10. Disputing a Transaction

For any complaint relating to the Payment Transactions carried out by the Service Provider within the framework hereof, the Account Holder is invited to contact the Platform’s Customer Service Department or the address indicated for this purpose in the General Terms and Conditions of the Website.
If the Service Provider carries out an Order with errors due to the Service Provider’s fault, the dispute is forwarded to the Service Provider as soon as possible, the Order is cancelled and the Account is restored to the condition it was in before receipt of the Payment Order.

Unless the Service Provider has good reason to suspect fraud on the part of the Account Holder, the Service Provider shall reimburse the Account Holder for the amount of the Transaction immediately upon receipt of the dispute request, and in any event no later than the end of the next Business Day. The Service Provider shall restore the Account to the state in which it would have been if the unauthorised Payment Transaction had not taken place.
In the event of loss or theft of the Personalised Security Data, any unauthorised Transactions carried out prior to the notification of the opposition shall be borne by the Account Holder. Transactions carried out after the opposition are borne by the Service Provider except in the event of fraud by the Account Holder.
10.3. Provisions Applicable to Consumer Account Holders
A Consumer Account Holder who wishes to dispute a Transfer Transaction that has not been authorised by it or has been incorrectly implemented must contact the Platform’s Customer Service Department by telephone as soon as possible after becoming aware of the anomaly and no later than thirteen (13) months after the date of debit, and must forward the dispute to the Service Provider as soon as possible. Unless the Service Provider has good reason to suspect fraud on the part of the Account Holder, the Service Provider shall reimburse the Account Holder for the amount of the Transaction immediately upon receipt of the dispute request, and in any event no later than the end of the next Business Day. The Service Provider shall restore the Account to the state in which it would have been if the unauthorised Payment Transaction had not taken place.
In the event of a dispute, the burden of proof that the Transaction has been authenticated, duly recorded and accounted for, and that it has not been affected by a technical or other deficiency is the responsibility of the Service Provider.
In the event of an unauthorised payment transaction resulting from the loss or theft of the Personalised Security Data, the Account Holder shall bear, prior to the notification of the objection, the losses related to the use of the Personalised Security Data, up to a maximum of fifty (50) euros. Transactions carried out after the opposition are borne by the Service Provider except in the event of fraud by the Account Holder.
However, the Account Holder shall not be held liable in the event of:
– an unauthorised payment transaction carried out without the use of the Personalised Security Data;
– loss or theft of Personalised Security Data that cannot be detected by the Account Holder before payment;
– loss due to acts or omissions of an employee, agent or branch of a PSP or of an entity to which its activities have been outsourced.
The Account Holder shall not be held responsible:
– if the unauthorised Payment Transaction was carried out by misappropriating the Personalised
Security Data without the Account Holder’s knowledge;
– in the event of counterfeiting of Personalised Security Data, if, at the time of the unauthorised Payment Transaction, the Account Holder is in possession of such Data.
The Account Holder shall bear all losses caused by the unauthorised Transactions if such losses result from any fraudulent action on its part or if it has intentionally, through gross negligence, failed to comply with its obligations to maintain the security of its Personalised Security Data and to notify its opposition in the event of loss, theft or misappropriation of such Data.
Except in the event of fraudulent action on its part, the Account Holder shall bear no financial consequences if the unauthorised Transaction has been carried out without the Service Provider requiring Strong Authentication from the Account Holder, in cases where the regulations stipulate that Strong Authentication is mandatory.
11. Financial Conditions
The services offered hereunder are invoiced by the Platform on behalf of the Service Provider in accordance with the Tariff Conditions.
All commissions owed by the Account Holder are automatically deducted from the Payment Account by the Service Provider. The Account Holder authorises the Service Provider to compensate at any time, including after the Account has been closed, any definite, liquid and due claim that remains outstanding for any reason whatsoever. It may compensate the provision on the Payment Account against any amount due, payable and unpaid by the Account Holder to the Service Provider.
In the event of late payment of fees due and payable by the Account Holder to the Service Provider, the Account Holder will be liable to the pay default interest for the period from the due date until the full payment has been made. The applicable interest rate will be calculated on the basis of two times the legal annual interest rate published semi-annually for companies. The amount of late payment interest due will be equal to the product of the amount of the unpaid sum by the aforementioned annual legal rate and the number of days overdue out of 365.
12. Duration and Termination
The Framework Agreement is concluded for an indefinite period. It comes into force upon its acceptance by the Account Holder.
The latter may, at any time and subject to thirty (30) calendar days’ prior notice, terminate the Framework Agreement. The Service Provider may terminate the Framework Agreement at any time, subject to two (2) months’ prior notice provided on a Durable Medium. In such a case, the regular fees for Payment Services will be payable by the Account Holder on a pro-rata basis for the period up to the date of termination.
Beyond six (6) months, the Framework Agreement may be terminated free of charge. In other cases, termination fees may apply in accordance with the Tariff Conditions.
To that end, each Party must send its notice of termination of this Agreement to the other Party, by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt, to the postal and email address indicated in the General Terms and Conditions of the Website.
As a result, the entire Framework Agreement is terminated and the Payment Account is closed. Any credit on the Account will be transferred within thirteen (13) months to the Account Holder’s Bank Account following the deduction of the fees due and payable to the Service Provider. If the credit on the Payment Account exceeds the limit specified in the Tariff Conditions, the amount exceeding this limit will be transferred within thirty (30) days of the effective date of termination to the bank account of the Account Holder following the deduction of the fees due and payable to the Service Provider. The Service Provider is released of all obligations once it has confirmed the transfer to the bank account indicated by the Account Holder.
In the event of serious breaches, fraud, or unpaid debts on the part of the Account Holder, the Service Provider reserves the right to suspend or terminate this Agreement by sending an email accompanied by a registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt without reason or prior notice. It is intended that the Framework Agreement will be automatically terminated in the event of new circumstances affecting a Party’s ability to commit hereunder.
13. Amendment of the Agreement
The Service Provider reserves the right to amend the Framework Agreement at any time. Any draft amendment of the Framework Agreement is provided to the Account Holder by the Platform. Any Account Holder may refuse the proposed amendments and must notify its refusal to the Platform’s
Customer Service Department by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt two (2) months before the date of entry into force of the proposed amendments (postmark recognised as affording proof) to the address indicated in the General Terms and Conditions of the Website.
If the Account Holder has not notified its refusal prior to the indicated date of entry into force, the Account Holder is deemed to have accepted the proposed amendments. Relations between the Parties after the date of entry into force will then be governed by the new version of the Framework Agreement.
In the event of refusal by the Account Holder, this refusal will give rise, free of charge, to the termination of the Framework Agreement, as well as the transfer of the balance of the Payment Account within thirteen (13) months following the effective date of the termination in order to cover any future disputes.
Any legislative or regulatory provisions that would make it necessary to amend all or part of the Framework Agreement will be applicable as from their date of entry into force, without prior notice. However, the Account Holder will be informed.
The Service Provider undertakes to provide its services in compliance with the applicable laws and regulations and best practices. In particular, the Service Provider will make every effort to ensure the security and confidentiality of the Account Holders’ data, in accordance with the regulations in force. The Service Provider reserves the right to temporarily suspend access to the Online Account for technical, security or maintenance reasons without these operations giving the right to any compensation. It undertakes to limit this type of interruption to what is strictly necessary.
However, the Service Provider cannot be held liable to the Account Holder for any errors, omissions, interruptions or delays in operations carried out via the Website resulting from unauthorised access thereto. Furthermore, the Service Provider cannot be held liable for theft, destruction or unauthorised communication of data resulting from unauthorised access to the Website. In addition, the Service Provider is not involved in the legal relationship between the Account Holder and a User or between the Account Holder and the Website. The Service Provider cannot be held liable for the faults, shortcomings or negligence of a User and the Account Holder towards each other, or of the Website and the Account Holder towards each other.
If the unique identifier or any other information necessary for the implementation of a Payment Transaction provided by the Account Holder is inaccurate, the Service Provider shall not be liable for the improper implementation of such Service.
The Platform is solely responsible for the security and confidentiality of the data exchanged in the context of the use of the Website in accordance with the General Terms and Conditions of the Website, with the Service Provider being responsible for the security and confidentiality of the data that it exchanges with the Account Holder in the context of this Agreement in connection with the creation and management of its Account, as well as the Payment Transactions associated with the Account.
15. Limitation of the Service Provider’s Liability
The Service Provider shall not intervene in any way in the legal and commercial relations and any disputes arising between the Account Holder and the User or between the Account Holder and the Platform or between the Account Holder and a Beneficiary. The Service Provider has no control over the conformity, security, legality, characteristics and adequacy of the products and services that are the subject of a Payment Transaction.
Each transaction carried out by the Account Holder gives rise to an agreement, directly formed between the Account Holder and a User, in which the Service Provider is not involved. Consequently, the latter may not be held liable for the non-implementation or improper implementation of the obligations resulting therefrom, nor for any damage caused to the Account Holder. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the Service Provider’s liability towards an Account Holder is limited to compensation for direct damages as provided for in the regulations.
16. Commitments of the Account Holder
The Account Holder guarantees that nothing in their Personal Space infringes the rights of third parties or is contrary to the law, public order or morality. The Account Holder undertakes not to:
(i) Implement the Framework Agreement in an unlawful manner or under conditions that may damage, disable, overburden or impair the Website;
(ii) Impersonate the identity of another person or entity, falsify or conceal their identity, age or create a false identity;
(iii) Distribute personal data or information relating to a third party, such as postal addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses, bank card numbers, etc. In the event of failure to comply with its obligations, the Service Provider may take all appropriate measures to cease the actions concerned. The Service Provider will also be entitled to suspend, delete and/or block the Account Holder’s access to their Account.
(iv) Without prejudice to any legal action taken by third parties, the Service Provider is entitled to take any legal action in its own right to compensate for any damage that it may have personally suffered as a result of the Account Holder’s failure to comply with its obligations under this Agreement.
If the Account Holder notices a breach of the above obligations, the Account Holder is invited to inform the Service Provider of such actions by contacting the Service Provider at: [email protected]

The implementation of the Framework Agreement may only be initiated before the expiry of the withdrawal period with the consent of the Consumer Account Holder.
The Consumer Account Holder acknowledges that the use of the Payment Services after the conclusion of the Framework Agreement will constitute an express request on its part to start the implementation of the Framework Agreement before the expiry of the above-mentioned deadline. The exercise of the right of withdrawal entails the termination of the Framework Agreement, which, in the event of initiation of implementation, consists of cancellation and does not call into question the services previously provided.

The response will be sent as soon as possible and no later than fifteen (15) Business Days following receipt of the complaint by the Service Provider. However, for reasons beyond its control, the Service Provider may not be able to respond within this period of fifteen (15) days.
In this case, it shall communicate to the Account Holder a response specifying the reasons for this additional time and the date on which it will send the final response. In any event, the Account Holder will receive a final response no later than thirty-five (35) Business Days following receipt of the complaint. The Account Holder is informed that the CSSF (Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier) is competent to settle, on an extrajudicial basis, disputes relating to the implementation of this Framework Agreement. For more information regarding the CSSF and the conditions of such recourse, you may contact the Platform’s Customer Service Department or consult the CSFF website (http://www.cssf.lu).
Applications for mediation must be addressed to the Ombudsman of the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF), 283 route d’Arlon, L-1150 Luxembourg ([email protected]), without prejudice to other legal remedies. However, the matter may not be referred to the Ombudsman if the application is clearly unfounded or abusive, if the dispute has been previously examined or is being examined by another Ombudsman or by a court, if the application to the Ombudsman is submitted more than one (1) year after the written complaint to the Service Provider, or if the dispute does not fall within the Ombudsman’s field of competence.

Any dispute between the Parties in respect of the Framework Agreement will be subject to the jurisdiction of the competent French courts.
