We may suspend Your Card and any other Cards connected to You until we are reimbursed the overspend amount.
7.6. Merchants such as car hire companies, hotels, restaurants and other service providers will estimate the sum of money You may spend or for which You require authorisation. The estimate may be for greater than the amount You spend or are charged, for example:
a. at restaurants You may be required to have a maximum of 20% more on Your Card than the value of the bill to allow for any service charge added by the restaurant;
b. at “pay at pump” petrol pumps (if applicable) You may be required to have an amount equal to the maximum Transaction value permitted at the pump in Your Card Account.
The merchant will be required to tell you the estimated amount that will be blocked in Your Card Account and seek Your consent.
This means that some of the funds on Your Card Account may be blocked until the Merchant has settled the actual Transaction amount and accordingly, You will not be able to spend this estimated sum during this period. We will release the blocked funds without undue delay on becoming aware of the amount of the Transaction and in any event will unblock the funds immediately after receipt of the settlement request from the merchant.
7.7. Merchants may not be able to authorise a Transaction if they cannot obtain online authorisation from Us. Any refunds for goods or services purchased with Your Card may only be returned as a credit to the Card. You are not entitled to receive refunds in cash.
7.8. We accept no responsibility for the goods or services purchased by You with Your Card. All such disputes must be addressed directly with the Merchant providing the relevant goods or services. Once You have authorised Your Card to make a purchase, We cannot stop that Transaction. However, where You have used Your Card to buy goods or services You may have a claim against the Merchant if the goods or services are unsatisfactory, not supplied, supplied only in part or do not match the supplier’s description. You must notify Us of any dispute within 60 days of the purchase and the chargeback will only be applied to Your Card Account if successfully secured from the Merchant. If You wrongly make a chargeback claim, We will be entitled to charge You any fees We reasonably incur in pursuing the chargeback claim and We will be entitled to debit Your Card Account with the amount of any such fees.
7.9. Authorising Transactions:
a. A Card Transaction will be regarded as authorised by You where You authorise the Transaction by following the instructions provided by the Merchant to authorise the Transaction, which includes:
i. entering Your PIN or providing any other security code;
ii. signing a sales voucher;
iii. providing the Card details and/ or providing any other details as requested;
iv. waving or swiping the Card over a card reader;
v. inserting a Card and entering Your PIN to request a cash withdrawal at an ATM;
vi. making a request for a cash advance at any bank counter
vii. any other security procedures that we require.
b. You must give consent to the execution of a Transaction for it to be authorised. Authorisation for a Transaction may not be withdrawn (or revoked) by You after the time We have received it. However, authorisation for any Transaction which is agreed to take place on a date later than the date it was authorised may be withdrawn if You give notice to the Merchant (providing a copy of the notice to Us) as long as notice was provided no later than the close of business on the business day before the Transaction was due to take place. We may charge You a fee if a Transaction is revoked by You under this Section (see the Fees Table for details).
7.10. If We are late in executing a payment that You instruct Us to make You may ask Us to contact the recipient's bank and ask them to credit it as if it had been received on the correct day.

We will treat any instruction from a Third Party Provider as if it were from you.
b. We may refuse to allow a Third Party Provider to access your Card Account if we are concerned about unauthorised or fraudulent access by that Third Party Provider. Before we do this we will tell you and explain our reasons for doing so, unless it is not reasonably practicable, in which case we will tell you immediately afterwards. In either case, we will tell you in the way in which we consider most appropriate in the circumstances. We won’t tell you our reasons where doing so will undermine our reasonable security measures or otherwise be unlawful. We may make available to a Third Party Provider a specific means of accessing your Card Account. If we do, and it tries to access your Card Account by a different way, we may refuse to allow that access.
c. If you think a payment may have been made incorrectly or is unauthorised, you must tell us as soon as possible even where you use a Third Party Provider.
8. Transactions made in foreign currencies
If You use Your Card to purchase goods or services or withdraw cash in a currency other than the currency of Your Card Account, then such Transaction will be converted to the currency of Your Card on the day We receive details of it.
