By using the Card or activating it (see Condition 2.3 below) You agree to the Terms and Conditions in the Agreement.
1.2 The Hryze card is issued by Monavate Limited, pursuant to license by Mastercard International. Mastercard is a registered trademark of Mastercard International Incorporated. Monavate Limited is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority under the Electronic Money Regulations 2011 for the issuing of electronic money and the provision of payment services (FCA Register reference 901097).

1.3 This Agreement will commence on the Commencement Date and will terminate in accordance with Condition 9. This Agreement and all communications between Us and You shall be in the English language.
2.1 The Card is a prepaid payment card that may be used to pay for goods and services at participating retailers that accept MasterCard. It is designed for use in shops and retail locations where You are physically present or for use online. Like any payment card, We cannot guarantee that a particular retailer will accept the Card – please check with the retailer before attempting the transaction if You are unsure.
2.2 The Card is a prepaid card, not a credit card. You must ensure that You have sufficient Available Funds on your Account to pay for each purchase, payment or cash withdrawal using the Card. The Card is intended for use as a means of payment, and funds loaded onto the Card do not constitute a deposit. You will not earn interest on the balance of the Card. The Card will expire on the Expiry Date and will cease to work. Please check Condition 7 of this Agreement for further information.
2.3 When You receive Your Card, it will be issued to You in an inactive state. You will need to activate it by logging onto your online account prior to use. The Card will normally be ready for use immediately. If You don’t activate Your Card, any transactions that You attempt to carry out may be declined.
3. FEES AND CHARGES

4.1.2 The Card PIN was entered, or a sales slip was signed; or
4.1.3 Relevant information was supplied to the retailer allows them to process the transaction, for example providing the retailer with the 3-digit security code on the back of Your Card in the case of an internet or other non-face-to-face transaction.
4.2 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 Conditions 12 and 13.
4.3 On receipt of notification of Your authorisation, normally We will deduct the value of the transaction, plus any applicable fees and charges, from the Available Funds on the Card. The retailer or service provider that has accepted Your Card for payment will normally receive the payment within 3 Business Days.
4.4 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 a 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.
4.5 The Card may be used for full or part payment of purchases. In the case of part payment, the cardholder will be required to pay the outstanding amount of the purchase by an alternative means, for example, in cash, by debit card or credit card.
