You can turn off these notifications, through the Dzing app or in your device’s settings, at any time. If you turn off notifications, you should regularly check your payments on the Dzing app. It’s important that you know what payments go into and out of your account, so we recommend that you do not turn off notifications.

4. Information on how money in your Dzing wallet is safeguarded

4.2 What are segregated bank accounts? These are bank accounts which we hold with tier 1 banks and only hold client money and not Dzing’s money to keep your money safe.
4.3 What is the point of safeguarding? Safeguarding your money means that in the unlikely event that Dzing gets into financial difficulties, the money which we safeguarded on your behalf will be protected from the claims of our creditors and should be returned to you in full.

c) if the payment is to a non Dzing wallet account, the account’s sort code and account number or for international payments the account’s BIC and IBAN or such other information we require.
5.4 Can I set up a payment to be made at a date in the future? You can use the Dzing app to set up a standing order (recurring payment) to pay a set amount at regular intervals to other people, organisations or to yourself. Otherwise, you can only ask us to make payments for immediate execution.
5.5 Can I cancel a payment once I have asked you to execute same? You can cancel a ‘payment link’ (described in clause 8.1) before it is activated by the addressee (but not after that).
You may cancel a payment under a standing order at any time up to the end of the business day before the day on such payment is due to be made from your Dzing wallet.
Please note that cancellation is not possible for payments with the immediate execution. If you think you have provided us with incorrect beneficiary account details, please let us know as soon as possible and we shall make reasonable efforts to trace this money and let you know the outcome.
5.6 How long will it take for the money to reach the desired account?
We are obliged by regulation to let you know the maximum times (as set by law) it should take for money to arrive with the beneficiary’s bank from the date you told us to make a payment. We set out these maximum times in the table below. Please note that it may take much less time for your money to reach the relevant account.

(e) if you owe us money;
(f) if we have asked you for important information we reasonably need and you have not given us that information; or
(g) if we have suspended your account.
5.8 What if the money does not reach its destination? There may be occasions where we send money on your behalf to a beneficiary account which is not a Dzing wallet and it is returned to Dzing (for whatever reason). If we had to carry out a currency exchange when we sent the payment, when the money is returned it will be converted back into the original currency at the then prevalent exchange rate. This means that the amount you receive might be more or less than the amount you originally held in your account. We are not responsible for any losses in such cases.
5.9 How do I exchange money in my Dzing wallet from one currency to another? You can exchange money from one currency into another by following the instructions on the Dzing app. Before confirming the currency exchange, you will be provided with the exchange rate, the amount of money you wish to purchase and the amount of money you wish to sell.

(a) exchange money from one currency to another within the Dzing app; or
(b) spend money using the Dzing card in a currency other than the currency of your Dzing wallet,
we will use an exchange rate which is a mark-up on rate which we obtain from the wholesale currency markets. The exchange rate at the time you spend money using the Dzing card may be different to the one which applies when we carry out the currency exchange and deduct money from your Dzing wallet. You will be able to find out the exchange rate applied on the Dzing app.
5.11 What if I choose to use a merchant’s or cash machine’s exchange rate? We are not responsible if you are charged any fees or lose any money because you’re using your Dzing card in another country and you ask the merchant or a cash machine to perform a foreign exchange conversion on your behalf.
5.12 How do I find out Dzing’s currency exchange rates? You can find out the exchange rates we are able to provide you with at any given time by following the instructions on the Dzing app.

6. The Dzing card
6.1 What is the Dzing card? There are three types of Dzing card:
(a) the physical Dzing card – this is a tangible prepaid debit card containing a card number, expiry date and CVV number which can be used up until the expiry date of the card;
(b) the virtual Dzing card – this is a non-tangible prepaid debit card consisting of a card number, expiry date and CVV number which can be used up until the expiry date of the card;
(c) the disposable Dzing card – this is a non-tangible prepaid debit card consisting of a card number, expiry date and CVV number which can only be used once. After successful transaction by onetime payment card, Dzing app automatically issues another disposable card with new credentials.
Virtual Dzing cards and disposable Dzing cards can only be used with merchants in non-face-to-face transactions. Dzing physical cards can be used with merchants, at cash machines that accept Mastercard and as well with merchants in non-face-to-face transactions. Please note that Virtual Dzing cards should not be used to purchase an item over the Internet that subsequently would require presentment of a physical reference device in order to obtain that item (for example certain theatre ticket purchases, hotel stays, car rentals, and online purchases picked up in person).
6.2 How do I activate the physical and virtual Dzing card? All types of Dzing card and the Additional Dzing Card (please see Clause 7 for more information) can be activated by following the instructions on the Dzing app.
6.3 How do I obtain details of the disposable Dzing card? You can obtain these by following the instructions on the Dzing app. Once used, those details can no longer be used however, you can use the Dzing app to obtain fresh details for a new disposable Dzing card.
6.4 Why would I use a disposable Dzing card? The advantage of a disposable Dzing card is that, once used, the details of the disposable Dzing card cannot be used by anyone to make a payment from your Dzing wallet. Accordingly, it is safer than using “permanent” card details.
6.5 How do I authorise / provide my consent to spending money or withdrawing cash using a Dzing card? Any use of your Dzing card, an Additional Dzing Card, the card number of your Dzing card or Additional Dzing Card or the relevant personal identification number (“PIN”) in accordance with clause 6.7, clause 6.8 and clause 6.9 constitutes your authorisation and consent to spending money or withdrawing cash in your Dzing wallet, using your Dzing card or an Additional Dzing Card.
6.6 Am I able to cancel a payment I have authorised using the Dzing card? No. You cannot stop a payment (including a pre-authorised payment) once it has been approved.
6.7 How do I spend money in my Dzing wallet using the physical Dzing card? You and your Additional Card Holders can spend money in your Dzing wallet using the physical Dzing card:
(a) in the presence of a merchant by entering the Dzing card’s PIN into the merchant’s card reader or by tapping the Dzing card against the merchant’s contactless enabled card reader; or
(b) when you or your Additional Card Holders are not in the presence of a merchant, by providing the merchant with the Dzing card’s 16-digit number, the expiry date, the CVV number and the billing address of the card.
6.8 How do I or Additional Card Holders withdraw money from by Dzing wallet using the physical Dzing card? This can be done by inserting a physical Dzing card in a cash machine, entering the relevant PIN and requesting the amount of money to be withdrawn.
6.9 How can I spend money in my Dzing wallet using the virtual Dzing card or a disposable Dzing Card? You can spend money using a virtual Dzing card or a disposable Dzing Card with a merchant that accepts Mastercard when you are not in the presence of the merchant by providing the merchant with the Dzing card number, the expiry date, the CVV number and the billing address of the Dzing Card.
6.10 Can I withdraw cash using the virtual Dzing card or a disposable Dzing Card? No. You require a physical Dzing card to withdraw cash.
6.11 Do I have any obligations to keep the Dzing card safe? Yes. You must:
a) sign your physical Dzing card as soon as you receive it and keep it safe;
b) ensure that any additional Dzing Cardholders sign their Additional Dzing Card as soon as they receive same and keep it safe;
c) not allow anyone else to use your Dzing card;
d) ensure that no-one other than the applicable Additional Cardholder uses the Additional Card;
e) not reveal your PIN and never write down your PIN unless you do this in a way that would make it impossible for anyone else to recognise it;
f) ensure that the Additional Dzing Cardholder does not record the PIN of their Additional Card and not write down their PIN unless it is done in a way that would make it impossible for anyone else to recognise it;
g) only share your Dzing card number, your Dzing card’s expiry date and CVV with a merchant you wish to purchase goods or service from;
h) ensure that Additional Dzing Cardholders only share their Additional Dzing Card number, expiry date and CVV with a merchant they wish to purchase goods or services from; and
i) if your Dzing card or an Additional Dzing Card is lost or stolen or someone else finds out the PIN or if you think your Dzing card, Dzing card number, your CVV or PIN or an Additional Dzing Card number, expiry date and CVV or PIN may be misused, you must call us immediately using the contact details set out in clause 1.2, so that we can freeze your Dzing card or Additional Dzing Card or freeze the Dzing card or Additional Dzing Card by following the instructions on the Dzing app.
6.12 Are there any circumstances where Additional Card Holders and I are not allowed to use the Dzing card? You and your Additional Card Holders must not use the card:
a) if it exceeds the balance or any limits on your Dzing wallet;
b) for pre-authorised regular payments;
c) for transactions for cash (other than withdrawals of cash from cash machines) including for example cash back, cash from a bank, money orders, traveller’s cheques, foreign exchange, or bureau de change, or
d) for any illegal purposes.
6.13 Will you ever refuse to let us spend money or withdraw cash using the Dzing card? Yes, for example if there is not enough money in your Dzing wallet to make the payment and pay any associated fees. If we do so, we shall, unless it would be unlawful to do so, let you know the reason why. These limits can be varied at any time by you using Dzing app.
6.14 Are we able to place spending limits on spending money or withdrawing cash using the Dzing card? Yes, you can set different types of limits for your card or for an Additional Dzing Card. Additional Dzing Cardholders can only spend money/withdraw the amount of money you add to the Additional Dzing Card.
6.15 Are there any circumstances we should be aware of where there is a limit applied to the Dzing card? There is a limit on payments you can make using the Dzing card where it is not possible to obtain online authorisation that you have sufficient money in your Dzing wallet, for example, but not limited payments on trains, ships, and inflight purchases.
6.16 What happens when a merchant decides to refund money onto my Dzing card? If a merchant gives a refund for a purchase made using the Dzing card, monies will be added to the Dzing wallet when we receive the funds from the relevant merchant.
6.17 What if I use my Dzing card to pay a merchant or withdraw cash in a currency other than the default currency of the Dzing wallet? The Dzing card can be used to make payments and withdraw cash in currencies other than the default currency of the Dzing wallet. Please see clause 5.9 for information on the exchange rate applied. Fees may apply, please see clause 14 for more information. Please note that the exchange rate which applies at the time you spend money or withdraw cash may not be the same as the exchange rate which applies when we convert the transaction. You can check the exchange rate applied on the Dzing card.
6.18 What if I am provided with a choice when spending or withdrawing cash using my Dzing card? In this case, it is your choice whether to use our exchange rate or the exchange rate provided by the relevant merchant or cash machine.
For example, if your Dzing card’s currency is sterling and you are in a restaurant in Spain and choose to pay the restaurant using your Dzing card in Euro, we will deduct enough money in pounds sterling from your Dzing wallet to send the requested amount of euro to the restaurant.
(h) a merchant (or the company which the merchant uses to take card payments) will allow you to pay in a currency other than the currency which the merchant would ordinarily use to charge for its services;
(i) a cash machine will allow you to pay for a cash withdrawal in a currency other than the local currency of the cash machine.
(a) These payments / withdrawals can sometimes be at an exchange rate which is less competitive that the exchange rate which we provide. So, for example, if you want to pay for a meal in a restaurant in Spain costing €70, the restaurant may allow you to pay £68 to settle the invoice whereas if you had used our exchange rate, £65 might have been deducted from your Dzing wallet to settle the invoice.
(b) We therefore recommend that you always check which exchange rate is more competitive before decided which one to use. If you choose to use the merchant’s or the cash machine’s foreign exchange rate, we shall not be liable for any losses you incur as a result.
6.19 Is there an expiry date for the Dzing card? Yes, the expiry date is printed on the front of each Dzing card. You will not be able to use your Dzing card after the expiry date.
6.20 What if I change my mind about wanting a Dzing card? If you change your mind about having the Dzing card, you can cancel it within 14 days of the date you receive your Dzing card, please call us. You will not be charged for canceling the Dzing card during this period.
6.21 What if we don’t know the amount which is going to be charged to the Dzing card? We will not block funds on the Dzing Card unless you authorise the exact amount to be blocked. This could be the case for payments you make at hotels or at fuel stations, for example. We shall release any blocked funds without undue delay as soon as we are aware of the exact amount of the payment transaction and immediately after receipt of the relevant payment order. You may be entitled to request a refund if the amount charged is unexpectedly large, provided that:
(a) you tell us within eight weeks from the date the money is deducted from your Dzing wallet;
(b) you were not told by us, or the merchant, of the amount of that payment at least four weeks before the payment was due to be deducted from your Dzing wallet and you consented to the payment.
Upon receipt of such a request for a refund, we may require you to provide us with the information to ascertain whether the conditions have been met. Within 10 business days of receiving a request from you or of receiving any additional information required under this clause, we will provide a refund or justify why we are refusing the request.
6.22 Can I “freeze” the Dzing card, for example, if I think that I have lost it or if I will not be using it for a while? Yes, just go onto the Dzing app and choose the option to freeze the card. Whilst the Dzing card is frozen, it cannot be used but it can be “unfrozen” and used in a matter of seconds.
6.23 Is there anything else relating to the Dzing card that we should know? Yes:
a) we are not responsible for the quality, safety, legality, or any other aspect of any goods or services purchased with the Dzing card;
b) we are not liable for the failure of any merchant to accept the Dzing card as a method of payment or for any cash machine failing to issue cash.
c) we are not liable for a merchant refusing to honour a transaction or refusing a refund or other payment.
7. Additional Dzing Cards
7.1 Can I allow Dzing cards, linked to my Dzing wallet, to be issued to other people? Yes, these are referred to as “Additional Dzing Cards” (which in the Dzing app will carry the name of “Partner card”, “Child card” or other names depending on the product you choose). Just make a request via the Dzing app . You must provide the name, address and date of birth of each person you want to be issued with an Additional Dzing Card.
Please note that except for “Child card” such person must be over 18 years of age. You can request an Additional Dzing Card for children and teenagers between the ages of 6 & 18 (“Dzing Child card”).
An Additional Dzing Card may only be used by the Additional Dzing Cardholder for whom such Additional Dzing Card was requested. The Additional Dzing Cards are non-transferable, and you are not permitted to allow any other person to use the Additional Dzing Card, for example, by disclosing the PIN or allowing other person to use the Additional Dzing Card to purchase goods. Prior to use, the Additional Dzing Card should be signed by Additional Dzing Cardholder on the signature strip located on the back.

All money spent and cash withdrawn and charges incurred using the Additional Dzing Card will be deducted from your Dzing wallet.
Please make sure that you have set up and the parent controls on your child’s Additional Dzing Card to receive notifications for an additional level of protection. By setting and keeping active the parent controls to suit you can decide where your child can spend and how much can be spent. If you have set transaction limits on your child’s Dzing Child card and your child attempts to buy something over these limits, our system will intercept the transaction and blocks it. This feature gives you peace of mind as a parent that your child cannot make expensive mistakes. Any concerns regarding your child’s expenditure can be addressed by a simple conversation with the child. As the legal cardholder, the overall responsibility for use of Dzing Child card lies with you (the parent).
7.3 Are there any circumstances where Additional Card Holders are not allowed to use Additional Dzing Cards? Please refer to clause 6.12 of these terms which sets out the restrictions applicable to all Dzing cards, However since Dzing Child card is designed for use by children and teenagers between the ages of 6 years and 18 years only, there are the some more restrictions on such cards to prevent its use at adult merchants both on the High Street and online in addition to those that are provided in clause 6.12.
In particular, Dzing Child Card cannot be used at merchants that are listed under the following categories:
(a) Pubs, bars, nightclubs, and some restaurants

You have to ensure that each Additional Dzing Cardholder complies with the terms which apply to Dzing cards in this agreement. You must explain to all Additional Dzing Cardholders how to use their Additional Dzing Cards responsibly and in accordance with these terms and you must do so before they start using them.
7.5 What is my liability for Additional Dzing Cards? You are responsible for all actions taken by Additional Dzing Cardholders (for example authorising spending or withdrawing cash) and all failure by the Additional Dzing Cardholder to comply with the terms which apply to Dzing cards ,for example keeping the Additional Dzing Card safe.
Therefore it is especially important that you explain to your child that they must look after their Dzing Child cards at all times and keep it secure and that the PIN number must be kept safe and not shared or given to anyone.
Some useful tips to share with your child might include:
• Memorising the PIN and making sure no other person has access to it;
• Never writing the PIN down anywhere;
• Not disclosing your PIN to any person;
• Shielding your PIN when at a cash machine
Please be aware that many children inadvertently sign up to subscription services such as Amazon Prime, Spotify, NetFlix or Microsoft Xbox. These services constitute a subscription billing arrangement between the cardholder and the relevant merchant. If you or your child wishes to amend or cancel their subscription billing payment or have any query or dispute concerning their subscription billing payment, they may only do this by contacting the merchant directly and the terms and conditions set by the merchant will apply. To stop a subscription billing payment, you must notify us no later than the close of business on the business day prior to day on which the payment is due to be made. We will not be liable for any subscription billing payment that is deducted from your Dzing wallet before you have notified us in this manner. You will not be able to cancel a payment that has already been made to a merchant under these terms.
7.6 When does the Additional Dzing Card expire? If your Dzing card expires, the Additional Dzing Card will also expire even if the expiry date printed on an Additional Dzing Card is later than that on your Dzing card.
