  • the reason for the Payment Order by transfer.

Before transmitting a Payment Order by transfer, the Holder shall ensure that the Holder has sufficient amount available on the SFPMEI Payment account to cover the amount of the Payment transaction and associated fees as agreed in the Pricing Conditions. If necessary, the Holder shall credit the SFPMEI Payment account before the Payment Order by transfer.

The Holder's revocation of his Payment Order by transfer may be accepted if it is received before receipt of the Payment Order by transfer by the Institution for immediate execution transfers and before 10 am on the Business Day before the execution date for forward transfers.

Where the Payment Order by transfer is given by a payment service provider providing a payment initiation service, the Holder may not revoke that Payment Order by transfer after having given consent for the Payment Service Provider providing for the payment initiation service to initiate the Payment Transaction.

In the event of refusal to execute a Payment Order by transfer or blocking of a Payment Order by transfer, the Institution or the Partner shall inform the Holder by any means. The Institution or the Partner will, if possible, indicate to the Holder the reasons for the refusal or blocking, unless prohibited by French or European Union regulatory provisions.

The Institution collects the funds in the name and on behalf of the Holder and credits the Holder's Payment Account as soon as possible after the funds have been credited to its own account, except in the event of a legal provision applicable to the Institution requiring its intervention. After the funds have been posted to the Holder's Payment Account, the Holder receives a payment summary containing the following information: amount, date and time, number of the Payment Transaction, name of the payer, the account debited and the beneficiary, the reason received by the Institution.

6.3.    Payment orders by direct debit (debited from the Payment Account)

General provisions: The Holder (debtor) expressly authorises the Institution to debit on his Treezor Payment account by the amount in Euros corresponding to the direct debit Payment Orders received.

Formalisation of the Mandate: The direct debit data is formalised in a document entitled "SEPA Mandate" or " Direct Debit Mandate ("Core direct debit") transmitted by the creditor. The Holder (debtor) who accepts this method of payment debiting his Treezor Payment account, completes, checks and signs a mandate that he gives to his creditor, including his IBAN and BIC bank details and those of his creditor. The Holder's creditor must be identified by an SCI (SEPA Creditor Identifier) valid throughout the SEPA Zone. The mandate is identified by a UMR (Unique Mandate Reference) which is a mandatory feature of the SEPA Direct Debit provided by the creditor to the Holder. The debit authorisation is only valid for the mandate in question.

Modification of the Mandate: Any change in the terms of the mandate must be notified to the Institution through the Partner no later than the Business Day preceding the due date. Where appropriate, the Transaction may be rejected without the Institution being held liable for such rejection.

The Holder may, on the Application or the e-mail, request the blocking of a Payment Order by direct debit from his Payment Account, of direct debit Payment Orders from one or more creditors, authorise one or more creditors to issue such direct debit Payment Orders, or limit the amount or period of direct debit Payment Orders. These requests will be executed by the Partner.

R-Transactions: The Holder has the option of refusing the execution of SEPA direct debit Payment Transactions on his Payment Account. This refusal must be notified by mail to the creditor and the Partner or the Institution. The Holder will then have to agree on another means of payment with the creditor. If the creditor refuses to take account of this request or can no longer interrupt the execution of the direct debit Payment Order, as well as in other cases where the Holder is entitled to do so, the Holder has the possibility, at the latest at the end of the Business Day preceding the due date before the deadline defined by the Institution, to oppose a direct debit Payment Order before its execution or to revoke a mandate. The revocation of a mandate entails the withdrawal of consent to any Payment Order relating to this mandate whose due date occurs at the earliest at the end of the Business Day preceding the due date before the deadline defined by the Institution. This revocation is made by the Holder to his creditor. The Holder (or the Partner) must inform the Institution as soon as possible via the Site or the Customer Service. Where applicable, the Institution may not be held liable for a failure to provide information on the part of the Holder and the resulting direct or indirect consequences for the Holder.

Upon receipt of the pre-notification by the creditor informing him of the amount and due date of the SEPA direct debit Payment Transaction(s), the Holder checks that it complies with the agreement concluded with his creditor. In the event of disagreement, the Holder must immediately contact the creditor to suspend the execution of the SEPA direct debit.

 The Institution may issue within five (5) Business Days:

  • A rejection of the direct debit before the settlement date of the Payment Transaction in the case of incorrect bank details of the Holder or at the request of the Holder in the case of an unauthorised Payment Transaction;
  • A return of the direct debit after the settlement date, in the event of insufficient funds in the Payment Account or in the event of a claim for reimbursement by the Holder, in the event of a dispute over a Payment Transaction that does not comply with the expectations of the Holder or a Transaction not authorised by the Holder.

Execution of the direct debit Payment Order: the Institution and the Partner check the validity of the Holder's details and the absence of any non-payment instructions before executing the direct debit Payment Order. The time of receipt of the SEPA Direct Debit Payment Order by the Institution is the due date, in accordance with the schedule agreed between the creditor and the Holder. The Payment Service Provider forwards the SEPA Direct Debit Payment Order to the Institution within the time limits agreed between the creditor and its Payment Service Provider. These time limits shall allow payment on the agreed date.

The time presentation between banks is at least one (1) Business Day before the due date for SEPA business to business direct debits.

The Holder receives a summary of the Payment containing the following information:

  • amount, date and time, Payment Transaction number,
  • name of the Beneficiary (creditor),
  • name of the Payment Transaction,
  • UMR, reason communicated by the creditor,
  • creditor reference of the direct debit.

Disputes concerning the price of goods or services purchased are not admissible with the Institution. Only those relating to a Payment Transaction are covered by this Article. The Institution remains unaffected by any dispute that may arise between the Holder and a third party. The existence of such a dispute may in no way justify the Holder's refusal to honour the settlement of a Payment Transaction. 

9.2.  Repayment of unauthorised or incorrectly executed Payment Transactions

In the event of a dispute by a Holder within thirteen (13) months of the debit of the Payment Account, it is up to the Institution to prove that the Payment Transaction was authorised under the conditions laid down in the Framework Agreement. In the absence of proof by the Institution that the Payment Transaction has been authorised, the Institution will immediately, after becoming aware of the Payment Transaction and at the latest at the end of the first following business day, reimburse the Payment Transaction unless it has good reason to suspect fraudulent conduct on the part of the Holder.

Where the unauthorised Payment Transaction has been initiated through a Payment Service Provider providing a payment initiation service, the Institution will immediately, and at the latest by the end of the first following business day, reimburse the Payment Transaction. The Institution will restore the Payment Account, in the form of a temporary credit, to the situation it was in if the disputed Payment Transaction had never been carried out. 

The Holder may send the Institution a request for reimbursement of a Payment Transaction ordered through the Beneficiary and authorised by the Holder if the authorisation given did not indicate the exact amount of the Payment Transaction and if the amount of the transaction exceeded the amount that the payer could reasonably expect. This request must be made within eight (8) weeks of the date on which the funds were debited from the Payment Account and cover the entire Transaction. No request for partial reimbursement can be processed by the Institution. The Holder must provide all the elements relating to the reimbursement claimed. The Institution assesses the legitimacy of the request on the basis of these elements, the profile of the Holder's past expenditure, the conditions of the Agreement and the circumstances of the Transaction. The Institution has ten (10) working days from receipt of the request for reimbursement to perform the reimbursement or to justify its refusal to do so.

The Holder may also raise a dispute with the Institution if, when withdrawing cash, The Holder has not received the full amount requested. The refund request shall be submitted before the expiry of a period of eight (8) weeks from the date on which the Payment Transaction, which is the subject of the refund request, is debited from the Payment Account on which the card operates. The amount of the refund is then equal to the amount not received. 

The Parties agree to take the utmost care in informing each other of the conditions of execution of the transaction. Where appropriate, and in particular in the event of fraud or suspected fraud committed by an identified or unidentified third party, the Institution may request for a copy of the complaint filed.

9.3.   Responsibility of the Parties

The Cardholder must take all measures to keep his Card and preserve the confidentiality of his personalised Security Data, in particular his confidential code. To this end, he must use this personalised Security Data in accordance with the purposes specified in this Framework Agreement. The Holder assumes the consequences of the use of the Card as long as he has not requested an opposition under the conditions set out in Article 7.1 and in the Article below.

The Institution is responsible for the proper execution of Payment Transactions with regard to the Holder. Where the payment order is given by the payer Holder, the Institution is responsible for the proper execution of the Payment Transaction with regard to the payer until the amount of the Payment Transaction is received. Then, the beneficiary's payment service provider is responsible for the proper execution of the Payment Transaction with regard to the beneficiary. Furthermore, neither the Institution nor the Partner can be held liable for any losses caused by unauthorised Payment Transactions in the event of fraudulent conduct on the part of the Holder, fault on the part of the Holder such as a wilful or grossly negligent breach of his obligations (such as, in particular, late submission of the opposition).

9.3.1.         Unauthorised transactions prior to the opposition request

In the event of unauthorised Payment Transactions resulting from the loss or theft of the Card or the personalised Security Data associated with it, the Holder bears the losses related to the use of the personalised Security Data associated with the Card prior to the opposition described in Article 7, within the limit of fifty (50) Euros.

However, he is not liable for Payment Transactions carried out:

  • Without the use of personalised Security Data;
  • Following the loss or theft of a payment instrument and if the act could not be detected by the Holder prior to the Payment Transaction;
  • Following the misappropriation, without the Holder's knowledge, of the payment instrument or the personalised Security Data linked to it;
  • Following the loss of personalised Security Data due to the actions or failure to act of an employee, agent or service provider of the Institution;
  • Without the Institution requiring strong Authentication from the Beneficiary's Payment Service Provider.

However, when the Beneficiary's Payment Service Provider is located in a State that is not a member of the European Union or a party to the agreement on the European Economic Area, Payment Transactions resulting from the loss or theft of the Card are borne by the Holder within the limit of fifty (50) Euros in the case of Payment Transactions carried out without the use of personalised security data.

9.3.2.         Unauthorised operations carried out after the opposition request

Unauthorised payment transactions carried out after the opposition request are borne by the Partner, with the exception of those carried out by the Card Holder.

As an exception, all unauthorised transactions are charged to the Card Holder, with no limit on the amount, if:

  • The Card Holder has failed, intentionally or through gross negligence, to fulfil the obligations set out in this Framework Agreement; or
  • The loss, theft, misappropriation or any unauthorised use of the Treezor Payment Accounts or the Card is the result of fraudulent conduct by the Cardholder.

A Payment Transaction is not considered to be unauthorised or improperly executed if the goods or services it covers are not delivered or executed under the conditions laid down by the Beneficiary of the Transaction. Therefore, these Payment Transactions may not be the subject of a request for reimbursement from the Institution or the Partner.

In the absence of a definition, capitalized terms will have the meaning given to them in the Payment Services Framework Agreement. 

3.     PAYMENT ACCOUNT

The Holder has previously accepted the Lydia T&Cs and the Payment Services Framework Agreement and has a Payment Account in the books of the SFPMEI. 

The Holder funds the Payment Account at the latest before Treezor authorises the Card Payment Order. The Holder funds the Payment Account in accordance with the provisions of the Lydia T&Cs and the Framework Agreement and these GCU.

4.     PRICES

Treezor provides the Card to the Holder under the Price Conditions within the limits set by the Pricing Conditions and applicable regulations. The fees are debited from the Holder's Payment Account in accordance with the Framework Agreement. 

5.     CARD ISSUANCE AND ACTIVATION 

The Card is issued by Treezor, of which it remains the property, at the Holder's request, to the address indicated by him. The Holder must connect to the Application to be able to activate the Card according to the instructions given to him and must sign these SCU. Activation of the Card is subject to the Holder singing these SCU. In addition, the Holder must have personalised security data in accordance with Article 8 hereof in order to use the Card.

Once issued, the Card must be activated. The activation of the Card differs depending on the type of Card concerned:

  • Physical card: a confidential code is assigned by default to the Holder. By connecting to the Lydia Application, the Holder can consult the confidential code assigned and modify if desired. The Holder must memorize these digits and keep them secret (n.b . What is the Account holder's responsibility?). This confidential code allows the Holder to authenticate whenever the Seller's Electronic Equipment instructs to do so. To finalize the activation of a physical card, the Holder will have to make a withdrawal from an ATM.
  • Virtual Card: following the creation of a virtual Card, no additional activation step is required to use it on the Internet or in an application

To be able to use a virtual card in store, via contactless mobile payment, the Cardholder must link the card to mobile payment application (Apple Pay, Google Pay, etc.), under the conditions provided by the respective applications.

6.     CONDITIONS OF USE

The Card is intended for non-professional purposes and enables Payment Transactions with a non-professional purpose to be carried out. The Holder undertakes to use the Card or its number exclusively within the framework of the Payment Card Network whose brand is affixed to the Card and to comply with the rules relating to each of the marks affixed to the Card. 

6.1.    Conditions of Use of the Physical Card

The Physical Card is strictly personal, and the Holder must sign it upon receipt if there is a space provided for this purpose on the Card's support. It is strictly forbidden for the Holder to lend or dispose of his Card. When a signature panel appears on the Physical Card, the absence of a signature on the Physical Card justifies its refusal of acceptance.

The Holder is prohibited from making any functional or physical alteration to the Physical Card that is likely to hinder its operation or that of the electronic payment terminals and machines (the “Electronic Equipment”), or automatic teller machines (the “ATMs”).

6.2.    Conditions of Use of the Virtual Card

The Virtual Card is strictly personal and it is strictly prohibited for the Holder to communicate the number.

7.     PURPOSE OF THE CARD

The Virtual Card allows the Holder:

  • If it links it to its mobile payment application (Apple Pay, Google Pay, etc.), to pay for purchases of goods or services from shops and service providers equipped with an Acceptance Point displaying one of the Payment Card Network's marks on the Card (the Acceptors) and allowing contactless payment,
  • To pay remotely, , for purchases of goods or services from Acceptors.
  • The Physical Card also allows:
  • To make cash withdrawals at ATMs of institutions duly authorised to provide payment services displaying one of the Payment Card Network's marks on the Card,
  • To pay for purchases of goods or services from Acceptors, without these allowing the payment in contactless,
  • To pay with “contactless” technology for purchases of goods or services providing services from Acceptors, without linking their Card to their mobile payment application (Apple Pay, Google Pay, etc.).

8.     PERSONALISED SECURITY DATA

Personalised security data is defined by the Partner and allows the Holder to use the Card. 

Each Physical Card Holder is assigned a personalized security device, in the form of a personal code (cf. Lydia Manual > Security Code). The Holder can modify this confidential code directly in the application. If the Holder is requested, this code must be entered on the Electronic Equipment of the seller of a good or service by the Holder. The Card is blocked if an incorrect confidential code is entered on three successive occasions. To unblock his Card, the Holder must contact the support service with the details on the Site.

In particular, it consists of a personal code which is communicated by the Partner via the Application, personally and only to him, to his home address. The Holder may be invited to choose his code, when activating the Card. In all cases, he must take all measures to ensure the security of his Card, the confidential code and more generally any other element constituting the Card's personalised security data. He must therefore keep his code absolutely secret and not communicate it to anyone. By way of exception, the Holder may communicate it to third-party payment service providers 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, within the meaning of Article 4 of European Directive 2015/2366. The Holder must ensure that the payment service provider is authorised for these services and that he enters his personalised security data in a secure environment. 

In particular, it must not be written on the Physical Card or on any other document. He must be careful to compose it away from prying eyes. He must use the personalised safety data each time he is instructed to do so by the Acceptance Point, otherwise his liability may be incurred. This code is essential for the use of Electronic Equipment and any remote payment terminal (such as a secure reader connected to a computer, TV decoder, mobile phone with insertion of the Card, etc.) designed in such a way that no transaction can be carried out without the use of this confidential code. The number of successive attempts to compose the confidential code is limited to three (3) on the Electronic Equipment. On the third unsuccessful attempt, the Holder causes the Card to be invalidated and/or, where applicable, captured. When the Holder carries out a Card Payment Transaction at a Acceptance Point by entering the confidential code, he must ensure that this terminal is approved by the Network by checking the presence of the MasterCard brand and use it exclusively for the purposes referred to in Article 6.4 of the Card's SCU. The Holder must take all appropriate measures to ensure the security of the personalised security data. 

9.     OTHER PERSONALISED SECURITY DATA

To ensure the security of Card Payment Orders given remotely (e.g. over the Internet) by the Holder, he may be asked to communicate, in addition to the usual data related to the remote use of the Card (number, validity date and visual cryptogram on the back of the Card), any other data (e.g. a password or a code which is then different from the one referred to in Article 8 allowing a Strong Authentication of the Payment Order , which may, if necessary, be communicated by the Partner. The personalised security data related to remote use accepted by the Partner is detailed in the manual in the article on Payment Security in the Lydia Manual.

The Holder acknowledges having been informed by Treezor that, for any secure Card Payment Order given remotely from abroad, the sending by the Partner of the security data referred to above may result in the Holder paying additional charges to any carrier of said data, in particular to its mobile telephone operator. These costs will remain the responsibility of the Holder, who hereby accepts them.

10.   FORM OF CONSENT AND IRREVOCABILITY

The Holder and Treezor agree that the Holder gives his consent to carry out a Card Payment Transaction before or after the amount of the Card Payment Transaction has been determined:

  • by typing his confidential code on the keypad of Electronic Equipment, by checking the presence of one of the Payment Card Network brands affixed to the Card,
  • by inserting the Card into Electronic Equipment without a keypad for entering the code, confidential by checking the presence of one of the Payment Card Network brands affixed to the Card
  • by communicating and/or confirming the personalised security data related to the remote use of the Card,
  • by confirming the payment order data communicated via an approved interbank digital wallet.

The Payment Service Holder cannot revoke a payment order once it has been received by the payer's payment service provider.

The Holder and Treezor agree that the Holder may use the Card for a series of Card Payment Transactions, hereinafter referred to as "recurring and/or instalment payments", with Acceptors for purchases of goods and/or services.

The Holder gives his consent to the series of Card Payment Transactions :

  • by communicating and/or confirming the data relating to the remote use of the Card at the time of the first Payment transaction, or,
  • where applicable via an approved interbank digital wallet.

The Holder may withdraw his consent to the execution of a Transaction or series of Transactions in the future at the latest at the end of the Business Day preceding the day scheduled for its execution.

The Card Payment Transaction is authorised if the Holder has given his consent in one of the forms defined above. From that moment, the Payment Order is irrevocable. However, the Holder may object to the payment in the event of receivership or compulsory liquidation proceedings against the Acceptor if the payment order has not yet been transferred to the Beneficiary’s payment service.

11.   PROCEDURE FOR USING THE CARD FOR CASH WITHDRAWALS AT ATMS DISPLAYING ONE OF THE BRANDS AFFIXED TO THE CARD 

Cash withdrawals at ATMs are possible within the limits of the availability of the ATM and the limits of the Card. The recorded amounts of these withdrawals and any commissions are immediately debited from the Holder's Payment Account without any obligation to indicate the number or name of the Holder of the Physical Card used and results in a debit from the Payment Account.

The Holder must, prior to each withdrawal and under his responsibility, ensure that there is a sufficient and available balance on the Payment Account. The Holder undertakes to maintain it until the corresponding debit.

12.   PROCEDURE FOR USING THE CARD TO PAY FOR PURCHASES OF GOODS AND SERVICES

The Card is a payment instrument that should only be used to pay for purchases of goods actually delivered and services actually rendered. Card payments are made in accordance with the terms and procedures in force at the Acceptors. In principle, they involve checking the confidential code and, under certain conditions defined by the Payment Card Networks, an authorisation request. When the Acceptor is in a country of the European Economic Area (the member states of the European Union, Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein), it has the possibility to install a priority selection mechanism on the Electronic Equipment. If the Holder does not agree with this choice, he can ask the Acceptor to use another brand or another payment application that is displayed as "accepted" by the Acceptor.

For Card Payment Orders given remotely, the Holder may be required to comply with a security procedure for such Payment Orders as referred to in Article 9 above.

Payments presented for collection by the Acceptor imply a debit the Payment Account on which the Card operates in accordance with the terms set out in the specific conditions of these SCU Card and the Framework Agreement. Even if there is a delay in payment, Treezor has the option to debit the Payment Account immediately which the Card for the amount of the Payment Transactions made using the Card, including in the event of the Holder's death, execution procedure, closure of the Payment Account or withdrawal of the Card by Treezor, a decision which will be notified to the Cardholder and the Holder by simple letter. Disputes concerning these Transactions are dealt with in accordance with the conditions laid down in Article 9.3. 

The Holder must ensure that, on the day on which payments are debited, the Payment Account has a sufficient and available balance that will be transferred to the Acceptor.

The detailed amount of the sums debited from the aforementioned Payment Account is shown, with some exceptions, on a statement of Payment Transactions to which the Holder can have access by e-mail request to support@lydia-app.com or by post to 14 rue de l’Opéra, 75001 Paris.

Treezor remains unaffected by any dispute that may arise between the Holder and an third. The existence of such a dispute can in no way justify the Holder's refusal to honour the settlement of a Payment Transaction. 

A Card Payment Transaction may only be reimbursed by an Acceptor if there has previously been a transaction debited for an amount greater than or equal to the amount of the Card Payment Transaction. This reimbursement must be made with the same Card used for the original transaction. 

A Payment Transaction may be carried out by the Holder in order to obtain "quasi-cash" (casino chips, purchase of foreign currency, etc.) in the places authorised for this purpose.

In some cases, the trader may request that the Cardholder have an Available Balance greater than the value of the Payment Transaction they wish to make. Only the actual and final value of the Payment Transaction will actually be debited from the Payment Account and, where applicable, the Payment Account. Acceptors take guarantees and must block funds that will not necessarily be debited from the Card.

They include, for example:

  • hotels, car rental companies, and 
  • websites - some Acceptor sites request authorisation on the Card to ensure the availability of funds. This authorisation has a temporary impact on the balance available on the Payment Account. Many traders only charge the Card when the goods are shipped, so the Holder must ensure that sufficient funds are available at all times to cover these purchases.

The Card cannot be used in situations where it is not possible to obtain an online authorisation request that would allow the Card's available balance to be known.

The Card may be used by the Holder at self-service fuel pumps in France, provided that the available balance on the Payment Account is greater than the amount of the guarantee required to authorise the purchase. The Card can be used to pay at the point of sale. 

The Holder undertakes to credit the SFPMEI Payment Account concerned in order to allow the Partner to debit this Account up to its due debt. The Holder will be notified and will receive an invoice to be paid immediately. If the Holder does not pay this amount immediately after receiving the invoice, the Issuer reserves the right to take all necessary measures, including legal measures, to recover the amounts due.

13.   RECEPTION AND EXECUTION OF THE PAYMENT ORDER

By agreement, Treezor informs the Holder that the Card Payment Order is received by Treezor at the time it is communicated to it by the Acceptor's bank or by the ATM operator through the clearing or settlement system of said payment order. When the Card Payment Order is executed within the European Economic Area Treezor has, from the moment of receipt, a period of one (1) Business Day to credit the Acceptor's bank account. With regard to withdrawals, Treezor informs the Holder that the withdrawal order is executed immediately by making the cash available. 

14.   TREEZOR'S LIABILITY

When the Holder denies having given his consent to carry out a Payment Transaction and/or withdrawal by Card , it is up to Treezor to provide proof that the Transaction has been authenticated, duly recorded and accounted for in accordance with the state of the art (in accordance with existing scientific and technical knowledge), and that it has not been affected by a technical defect. This proof of the use of the Card and of the personalised security data may be provided by any means, in particular by means of recordings of the Acceptance Points or their reproduction on a computer medium. Treezor can use these records as justification for charging them to the Payment Account on which the Card operates.

Treezor is liable for direct losses incurred by the Holder due to a technical deficiency in the Network over which Treezor has direct control. However, Treezor is not liable for any loss due to a technical defect in the Network if this is reported to the Holder by a message on the Acceptance Point or in any other visible way. 

15.   LIABILITY OF THE PARTIES

The Holder must take all measures to safeguard his Card and preserve the personalised security data attached to it, in particular his confidential code. He must use it in accordance with the purposes specified in Article 1. The Holder assumes the consequences of the use of the Card as long as he has not requested an opposition under the conditions set out in the Framework Agreement. 

Unauthorised Card Payment Transactions or poorly executed due loss, theft or hacking of the Card are the responsibility of Treezor, under the conditions provided for in Article 9.3 of the Framework Agreement. 

16.   TERM AND TERMINATION

The SCU are concluded for an indefinite period. They may be terminated at any time by letter or by e-mail by the Holder or by Treezor or by the Partner. The Holder can address a request to the Institution at 41 rue de Prony, 75017 Paris or to the Service Partner at 14 rue de l'Opéra, 75001 Paris or to the email address support@lydia-app.com .

Termination by the Holder takes effect immediately after the Partner has confirmed receipt of the request (the automatic acknowledgment of receipt is not considered a confirmation).

Termination by Treezor takes effect two months after the date of sending its notification to the Holder. If the Holder's Treezor Payment Account is closed, the SCU will be automatically terminated without notice. The Holder undertakes to destroy his Physical Card and/or delete his Virtual Card on the effective date of termination. He undertakes to comply with all contractual obligations imposed on him under the SCU until the aforementioned date. As from the effective date of termination, the Holder is no longer entitled to use the Card and Treezor and the Partner may take all necessary measures to ensure this.

17.   PERIOD OF VALIDITY OF THE CARD - RENEWAL - WITHDRAWAL AND RETURN OF THE CARD

The Card expire when its validity date is reached.

b) The Virtual Card is valid until the date in the Application. It is not automatically renewed at the end of its term and can be deleted at any time, free of charge, via the Lydia Application.

In addition to cases of blocking resulting from the management of the SFPMEI Payment Account and Treezor Payment Account on which the Card operates, Treezor may block the Card for security reasons or in the event of presumed unauthorised or fraudulent Transactions, or in the event of a significantly increased or proven risk that the Holder is unable to fulfil the payment obligation. In such cases, Treezor may withdraw the Card or have the Card withdrawn by an Acceptor or by an institution duly authorised to provide payment services. The closing of the Treezor Payment Account on which a Card operates entails the obligation to return the associated Card(s). The final closing of the Treezor Payment Account can only take place at the earliest one (1) month after the return of the Card(s). 

18.   DISPUTES OVER TRANSACTIONS

The challenge of Card payment transactions is governed by Article 9.3 of the Framework Agreement. 

19.   GUARANTEE
