3.2 We are not obliged to process and you have no right to make any particular Transaction. When you submit a Transaction Request, you are requesting that we process the Transaction on your behalf and consenting to the execution of the Transaction. We may, in our sole discretion, choose whether or not to accept the offer to process that Transaction. If we decide not to process the Transaction, we will notify you promptly of that decision and repay to you the Transaction Amount received by us, provided that we are not prohibited by law from doing so.If we choose to proceed with the Transaction we may still suspend or cancel it in our discretion.
3.3 Linked Money reserves the right to modify or discontinue the Service or any part of the Service without notice, at any time and from time to time.
3.4 We may, in our absolute discretion, refuse any Transaction Request (as further detailed in clause 5) or impose limits on the Transaction Amount. We may do so either on a per Transaction basis or on an aggregate basis, and either in respect of one set of registration details or one Payment Instrument or on related sets of registration details or Payment Instruments.
3.5 Delivery times quoted on our service levels or elsewhere on our website are representative for the “normal” / average service and are not a guarantee of an individual Service or Transaction time.
3.6 We will attempt to process a Transaction promptly, but any Transaction may be delayed or cancelled for a number of reasons including but not limited to: our efforts to verify your identity; to validate your Transaction instructions; to contact you; or due to variations in business hours and currency availability; or otherwise to comply with applicable law.
3.7 We may send and receive notifications in relation to a Transaction by email and SMS. We will provide you with information after receipt of a Transaction Request enabling you to identify the Transaction, along with details of the amount of the Transaction in the currency used in the Transaction Request, our Service Fee, exchange rate and the date on which the Transaction Request was received.
3.8 We will attempt to provide Senders and Recipients with up to date information regarding the location and opening hours of our Service Providers by means of information on our website. However, you agree that Linked Money shall not be held responsible for any inaccuracies that may appear in that information or any consequential loss which may result from incorrect or incomplete information.
4. YOUR OBLIGATIONS
4.1 You agree that:
4.1.1 you will not access, use or attempt to use the Service to provide any Instructions unless you are at least 18 years old, and that you have the legal capacity to form a binding legal contract in any relevant jurisdiction;
4.1.2 For each Transaction Request that you submit, you will pay us the Service Fee in addition to the Transaction Amount. Payment becomes due at the time that you submit your Transaction Request. To the maximum extent permitted by law, the Service Fee is non-refundable unless expressly stated in these Terms and Conditions;
4.1.3 if you submit a Transaction Request that results in Linked Money becoming liable for charges including but not limited to chargeback or other fees, you agree to reimburse us for all such fees;
4.1.4 We may apply a convenience fee for processing credit cards in certain jurisdictions at our discretion;
4.1.5 You will not use any device, software or routine to interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Service or any Instruction being conducted through the Service;
4.1.6 In connection with your Registration and use of the Service, you will:
(a) Provide us with true, accurate, current and complete evidence of your identity, and promptly update your personal information if and when it changes;
(b) Provide us with any identity documents as may be requested by us;
(c) Provide us with details of one or more Payment Instruments;
(d) provide us with true, accurate, current and complete information as we indicate on the website is required to receive the Service and any other information which may be required in relation to the Recipient; and
(e) Provide us with:
(i) any other information that must be provided for a Transaction Request to be properly executed, as specified when you enter the details of the Transaction you are interested in on our website; or
(ii) Such information relating to the Transaction as detailed in clause 5.5.
4.2 We do not accept any liability for loss or damages to you or any third party resulting from non-payment or delay in payment of a Payout Amount to a Payee or failure to perform an Instruction under the Service if you are in breach of your obligations listed in clause 4.1.
4.3 When you are using the Service under these Terms and Conditions, it is your responsibility to make sure all the details are accurate before submission. Once a Transaction Request has been received it is not normally possible to change any details of that Transaction Request. You will be given the opportunity to confirm the Transaction Request before submission and you must check the details carefully.
4.4 The total amount (the Transaction Amount, Service Fee and other applicable fees and charges) that you will be required to pay and the relevant exchange rate will be displayed clearly on the website before you are asked to confirm your Transaction and proceeding with the Transaction at this point is entirely optional.
4.5 When you pay a Transaction Amount in one currency and the Payout Amount is in another currency, there will be a difference between the exchange rate at which we buy foreign currency and the exchange rate provided to you. Linked Money and its Service Providers usually make a small profit in these circumstances. We guarantee you the Payout Amount in local currency. The margin taken on foreign currency exchange covers our risk in guaranteeing this. If a Payee’s account is denominated in a currency other than the currency you instructed us to make payment in there may be delays, additional charges or different exchange rates. The Sender is therefore responsible for ensuring that the currency requested for the Transaction matches the currency of the account where the funds are to be delivered.
4.6 Linked Money will have no responsibility for any fees or charges you may incur by the use of a particular Payment Instrument to fund a Transaction. These may include but are not limited to unauthorized overdraft fees imposed by banks if there are insufficient funds in your bank account or “cash advance” fees and additional interest which may be imposed by credit card providers if they treat use of the Service as a cash transaction rather than a purchase transaction.
4.7 You will only use the Service to send money to people that you know personally and not to pay for goods or services from third parties you do not know and trust. You acknowledge that Linked Money may refuse to process your Transaction Request where we believe you are using the Service to purchase goods or services from third parties you do not know and trust or where we believe that the Service is being used, by you or the Recipient, in furtherance of fraudulent, illegal or unethical activities. If you choose to pay third parties for goods and services using the Service, you acknowledge that Linked Money has no control over, and is not responsible for, the quality, safety, legality, or delivery of such goods or services and that any such use of the Service is entirely at your own risk.
4.8 Both you and the Recipient will only act on your own behalf. You may not submit an Instruction or receive a Transaction on behalf of a third person. If you intend to submit an Instruction or receive a Transaction on behalf of a third person, you must first inform Linked Money of your desire to do so and provide us with any additional information about the third person we may request in order that we may decide whether to permit the Instruction or Transaction.
4.9 In using the Service you will comply with these Terms and Conditions as well as any applicable laws, rules or regulations. It is a breach of these Terms and Conditions to use the Service to send Transaction Amounts: (i) to a Payee who has violated the Terms and Conditions, or (ii) in connection with illegal activity including but not limited to money-laundering, fraud and the funding of terrorist organizations. If Linked Money reasonably believes you are using the Service in connection with illegal activity or for any fraudulent purpose, or are permitting a third party to do so, Linked Money may report you to the appropriate legal authorities.
4.10 When using our website or the Service or when interacting with Linked Money, with another user or with a third party, you will not:
4.10.1 Breach these Terms and Conditions, or any other agreement between you and Linked Money;
4.10.2 Create more than one Registration without our prior written permission;
4.10.3 Provide false, inaccurate, or misleading information;
4.10.4 Allow anyone else access to your registration details, and you will keep those details safe and secure;
4.10.5 Refuse to provide confirmation of any information you provide to us, including proof of identity, or refuse to co-operate in any investigation;
4.10.6 Use an anonymsing proxy (a tool that attempts to make activity untraceable); or

4.11 You acknowledge that nothing in these Terms and Conditions or in any other information provided by Linked Money as part of the Service is intended to be, nor should it be construed to be, legal or other advice. If required, you agree to consult your own professional advisers as to the effects of Australian or foreign laws which may apply to the Service.
5. OUR RIGHT TO REFUSE, SUSPEND OR CANCEL
5.1 Registration for the Service does not entitle you to make any Transaction that you request. We may refuse a Transaction at any time for any reason. Where we permit a Transaction, we may still suspend or cancel the Transaction or the Service under this clause.
5.2 We may refuse any Transaction Request, Payment Request or Transaction at any time for any reason (or cancel it where relevant).Notwithstanding this, we set out here some examples of when that may occur.
5.2.1 We may, in our absolute discretion, refuse or cancel Transaction Requests or Transactions where we believe that the Service is being used, whether by you or the Recipient, in furtherance of illegal, fraudulent or unethical activities.
5.2.2 We may, in our absolute discretion, refuse or cancel Transaction Requests or Transactions from certain Senders or to certain Payees, including but not limited to entities and individuals on restricted or prohibited lists issued from time to time by any government authorities, if we are required to do so by law, or where we have reason to believe processing the Transaction Requests would violate anti-money laundering or counter-terrorism financing laws and regulations. We may refuse to process a Transaction funded from certain Payment Instruments where we have reason to believe the security of the Payment Instrument has been compromised or where we suspect the unauthorized or fraudulent use of the Payment Instrument.
5.2.3 We may, in our absolute discretion, refuse or cancel Transaction Requests or Transactions if Linked Money believes you are using the Service to purchase goods or services from third parties you do not know or trust.
5.2.4 We may, in our absolute discretion, refuse or cancel Transaction Requests, Payment Requests or Transactions if:
(a) Linked Money is unable to verify your identity;
(b) Linked Money is unable to verify the identity of the Recipient;
(c) you do not comply with information requests pursuant to clause 5.5; or
(d) Linked Money reasonably believes you are using the Service, or allowing it to be used, in breach of these Terms and Conditions or any applicable laws, rules or regulations.
5.3 Where Linked Money has refused or cancelled a Transaction Request, Transaction or Payment Request, Linked Money may also, at its discretion, temporarily or permanently suspend your Registration.
5.4 Where Linked Money temporarily or permanently suspends your Registration, or refuses or cancels a Transaction Request, Payment Request or a Transaction in accordance with this clause 5, Linked Money shall be entitled to retain any Service Fees already incurred.
5.5 In order to comply with our obligations under relevant laws, we reserve the right to ask for further information or evidence relating to the purpose of a Transaction.
6. YOUR RIGHT TO CANCEL; REFUNDS
6.1 To the extent permitted by law, once we have received your Instruction, you do not have the automatic right to revoke it.
6.2 Notwithstanding clause 6.1 above, Linked Money may, in its absolute discretion, attempt to cancel your Instruction if you have informed us that you wish to revoke it. In some cases, Linked Money may have initiated an irreversible request for funds to be paid out to your Payee by a Service Provider and therefore cannot guarantee cancellation will be successful. For successful revocations Linked Money will normally refund your money, less any reasonable revocation charges and any Service Fees already charged, within four (4) Business Days.
6.3 If you:
6.3.1 Have any problems using the Service; or
6.3.2 is aware of any unauthorised or incorrectly executed Transaction,
You should contact us through the channels listed at the end of these Terms and Conditions without delay and in any event no later than 13 months after the date the Transaction Amount was debited, upon becoming aware of the unauthorised or incorrectly executed Transaction. A request for a refund must be submitted in writing (including by email) to one of the contact points listed at the bottom of these Terms and Conditions, giving the Sender’s full name, address, and phone number, together with the Transaction tracking number, Transaction Amount, and the reason for your refund request.
6.4 If we have executed the Transaction in accordance with the instructions you have provided to us, and that information proves to have been incorrect, we are not liable for the incorrect execution of the Transaction. We will however make reasonable efforts to recover the funds. We may charge you a reasonable fee, reflective of our efforts, to do so.
6.5 Where Linked Money has executed the Transaction otherwise than in accordance with your Instruction, subject to clause 11.2, Linked Money will refund the full amount debited. Unless there are exceptional circumstances, no adjustment will be made for any currency fluctuations which may have occurred between the time you pay us the Transaction Amount and the time of credit.
6.6 Any refunds will be credited back to the same Payment Instrument used to fund the Transaction and in the same currency.
7. AIRTIME TOP UP
7.1 To send Airtime TopUp, you agree to comply with and undertake the provisions set out in these Terms and Conditions and this clause 7.
7.2 The Airtime TopUp service shall only be provided to you by us in respect of the mobile phone operators available on the website, which are subject to change and availability.
7.3 You will be required to input the mobile phone number to which any Airtime TopUp is to be credited into the appropriate space on the website. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have correctly inputted the mobile phone number. You will then be required to select the amount of Airtime Top-Up that you wish to credit that mobile phone number with.
7.4 When sending an Airtime Top Up, you will be asked to enter the Payee’s phone number twice. This is a unique identifier required to ensure that Airtime Top Up is not sent to the wrong person because of a mis-typed number. However, if you enter the wrong number twice, the transfer will go ahead and there is no way to reclaim or redirect the Airtime Top Up once the Transaction Request has been processed by us.
7.5 You are responsible for checking carefully with the Payee that you have their correct phone number.
7.6 The cost of Airtime TopUp will vary depending on the amount of Airtime TopUp that you wish to send to your friend or family member and according to the denominations displayed on the website.
7.7 The total amount (the Transaction Amount and our Service Fee) that you will be required to pay will be displayed clearly on the website before you are asked to confirm your Transaction and proceeding with the Transaction at this point is entirely optional.
7.8 A number of countries around the world have chosen to apply taxes to incoming Airtime Top Ups.When sending to a Payee in these countries, the corresponding deduction will be made from the Transaction Amount, meaning the Payee will get a lower amount of Airtime Top Up.
7.9 If the Payee you are sending to is in a country which does deduct taxes from Airtime Top Ups, you will see information about the rate on the Linked Money service or App before completing the transfer.
7.10 The Airtime Top Up is typically sent within a few seconds by us to the mobile phone number you provide upon successful payment by you. Occasionally, there may be a short delay before the relevant mobile operator applies the Airtime Top Up to the mobile phone number e.g. due to congestion on the local mobile network. If you have questions about a longer delay, please contact email@example.com.
7.11 You agree and understand that we only act on your authorisation to send Airtime Top Up and the relevant mobile operator shall be solely liable to you and the Payee of the Airtime Top Up for the provision of mobile services related to the Airtime Top Up. Once the Airtime Top Up is sent to a mobile phone number, it cannot be refunded or removed from the phone. To stop this mistake from happening, we ask you to ensure that the number you have entered is correct.
7.12 You acknowledge that you will lose the right to cancel the Airtime Top Up once the Airtime Top Up service has been fully performed by us. Accordingly, you will have no right to request a refund under the Australian Consumer Law (as set out in Schedule 2 of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) or the Australian Securities and Investments Commission Act 2001 (Cth).
7.13 Please note that the website limits the number of Airtime Top Ups that can be performed or the maximum value of Airtime Top Ups sent over a specific time period (e.g. daily, weekly, monthly).
7.14 Other limits and exclusions related to Airtime Top Ups or the use of the website may be applicable. You will be notified through the website or by email of these additional limitations should they exist or come into existence.
8. PAYMENT REQUEST
8.1 You agree that you will not send Payment Requests to strangers i.e. people you do not know personally.
8.2 You acknowledge that the Service may not be available, in whole or in part, in certain regions, countries, or jurisdictions.
8.3 We are not obliged, and there is no standing arrangement, to process any particular Payment Request. When you submit a Payment Request, you are requesting that we process the Payment Request on your behalf and consenting to us contacting the Sender for these purposes. You acknowledge and agree that, when we send a Payment Request by SMS text message to a Sender on your behalf, we may use the mobile telephone number associated with your Registration for this purpose (i.e. the Payment Request we send will show as being sent from your mobile telephone number). We may, in our sole discretion, choose whether or not to process that Payment Request, or impose limits on Payment Requests. In particular, we may, in our absolute discretion, refuse Payment Requests and/or suspend or cancel your Registration where (i) you are in breach of clause 4, (ii) we believe that the Service is being used, whether by you or the Sender, in furtherance of illegal, fraudulent or unethical activities, or (iii) we are required to do so by law (including applicable anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism legislation) or (iv) we are unable to verify either your identity or that of the Sender. However these are examples only, and we are not obliged to permit any Payment Request you submit.
8.4 Any Transaction that results from a Payment Request will be handled in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, which the Sender will need to accept prior to any Transaction proceeding.
8.5 Cancellation of Payment Requests. Once we have received your Payment Request, you may not cancel it. In such circumstances you would need to contact the Sender separately, and explain that you require the Payment Request to be treated as cancelled. Please therefore ensure that your Payment Requests are legitimate, accurate and complete.
8.6 Cancellation of a Transaction. The cancellation of a Transaction shall be governed by, and dealt in accordance with, these Terms and Conditions. You shall assist and co-operate with us in relation to all cancellation requests we receive from Senders after a Transaction has been initiated following your Payment Request. You shall, upon request from us, promptly refund to us or a third party of our choice (including the Sender) all monies you receive from a Transaction where we reasonably believe that a Transaction has resulted from your use of the Services in contravention of these Terms and Conditions.
9. COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
9.1 Customer Identification Program. Australian law requires financial institutions to assist in the fight against money laundering activities and the funding of terrorism by obtaining, verifying, and recording identifying information about all customers. We may therefore require you to supply us with personal identifying information relating to you and the Recipient and we may also legally consult other sources to obtain information about you and the Recipient.
9.2 Verification and Checks. We will verify your residential address and personal details in order to confirm your identity. We may also pass your personal information to a credit reference agency, which may keep a record of that information. Be assured that this is done only to confirm your identity and that we do not perform credit checks and therefore your credit rating will be unaffected. We may also need to verify the identity of a Recipient in the same way. All information provided by you will be treated securely and strictly in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).By accepting these Terms and Conditions you authorise us to make any inquiries we consider necessary to validate the information that you provide to us. We may do this directly, for example by asking you for additional information, or requiring you to take steps to confirm ownership of your Payment Instruments or email address; or indirectly, for example by verifying your information against third party databases or through other sources.
9.5 Linked Money may, as necessary in providing the Service, store all information required of a Recipient to prove his or her identity or associated with their specific Instruction. Such proofs may include a suitable form of valid, unexpired identification from a list of acceptable papers provided by the Service Provider, and/or a transaction tracking number, a personal identification number (PIN), a “password”, a “secret word”, or other similar identifiers.

11.3 Any claim for compensation made by you must be supported by any available relevant documentation.

The cap on our liability only limits a claim for loss arising out of any single Transaction or series of related Transactions, or (if a loss does not arise out of a Transaction or related Transactions) any single act, omission or event or related acts, omissions or events.
