3.7 If you wish to make use of an Authorised Account Information Services Provider to provide you with Account Information Services on your Parent Account, you may do so provided that you have signed up to use Online Portal and your Parent Account is active. We advise that before using an Authorised Account Information Service Provider, you ensure that the Authorised Account Information Service Provider is authorised by a Regulator to provide Account Information Services. In the UK, the Financial Conduct Authority’s register (available at https://register.fca.org.uk/) will tell you whether a company is authorised. You must provide your explicit consent or share your Online Portal credentials with the Authorised Account Information Service Provider each time an access to your Parent Account is required for them to provide you with Account Information Services. You should always consider the implications of sharing your Online Portal credentials and your personal information.
3.8 If an Authorised Account Information Services Provider requests access to your Parent Account to provide you with Account Information Services using your Online Portal credentials, we will assume that you have given consent to do so. Please note we are obliged to provide access to your Parent Account if it is requested by an Authorised Account Information Service Provider and can only refuse access in certain circumstances.

If the Cardholder forgets their PIN you can view the PIN on the Website or via the App. The Cardholder can change their PIN at any UK ATM.
4.10 When selecting or changing the PIN, the Cardholder must not select a PIN that may be easily guessed, such as a number that:
4.10.1 is easily associated with the Cardholder, such as their telephone number or birth date; or
4.10.2 is part of data imprinted on the Card; or
4.10.3 consists of the same digits or a sequence of running digits; or
4.10.4 is identical to a previously selected PIN.
5. USING YOUR ACCOUNT AND ACCOUNT STATEMENTS
5.1 Your Account can be managed via the Online Portal and via the App (standard network charges may apply) to apply for a Child Account, view your Account balance, top-up your Account, transfer funds between your Account and a Child Account and vice versa, transfer funds between a Child Account and a Child Savings Account, view the balance of your Child Accounts, view the transaction history of your Child Accounts, set up and cancel regular transfer from your Account onto a Child Account, and view and update a Child Account spend limits, view and update your and the Cardholders personal information, change or request reset of your Account password or a Child Account password, activate a Card or view a card PIN.

5.3 You can control where a Card is used for purchases and can turn off ATM usage for a Card.
5.4 We will make your monthly Account statements available through the Online Portal, you will be notified of the availability of new statements via email and push notifications.
6. USING THE CHILD ACCOUNT
6.1 The Available Balance on the Child Account associated to the Card will not earn any interest.
6.2 A Child Account can be used to transfer funds back to the main Account or to a Child Savings Account. The Cardholder will need to authorise each transaction. We will treat the transaction genuine if:
6.2.1 the transaction was authorised from the Online Portal while the Cardholder was logged in;
6.2.2 the transaction was authorised from the App registered to the Child Account
7. USING THE CARD
7.1 A Card can be used at any Merchant (fees apply, see paragraph 16) to make purchases in-store, via the internet or over the phone. It can also be used to obtain cash through ATMs. The Cardholder can authorise transactions on the Card at any Merchant by entering their PIN or other security code, if the Merchant does not accept chip and PIN authorisation, the Merchant may allow the Cardholder to authorise the transaction by signature of the receipt. A transaction can also be authorised by tapping the Card against a Contactless enabled reader.
7.2 Once a payment has been authorised from a Card, we cannot change or cancel it. We cannot cancel authorised payments that have not yet been processed. A Cardholder may be able to cancel transactions that have been authorised for a future date (including recurring transactions) by contacting the retailer before the date on which the payment is due to be made. We may refuse to execute a transaction if the transaction is unlawful or fraudulent and/or there is insufficient Available Balance. If we refuse to execute a transaction, you or a Cardholder can check the Child Account to ensure there was enough Available Balance to cover the transaction, or you can ask us why we have not executed a transaction by contacting Customer Services. Unless the law prevents us, we will explain why and we will also tell you what you or the Cardholder can do to correct any errors in the transaction.
7.3 When making an online transaction, the billing address must match the address of the Account Holder otherwise the transaction may be rejected.
7.4 The Card is a prepaid card, which means that the Available Balance will be reduced by the full amount of each transaction and authorisation, plus any applicable taxes and charges, including additional ATM charges if any. A Card must not be used if the Full Deductible Amount exceeds the Available Balance. If, for any reason, a transaction is processed for an amount greater than the Available Balance on the associated Child Account, you must repay us the amount by which the Full Deductible Amount exceeds the Available Balance of a Card immediately after receiving invoice notification from us. Should you not repay this amount immediately after receiving invoice notification from us we reserve the right to take all steps necessary, including legal action, to recover any monies outstanding.
7.5 Due to security safeguards, Merchants that accept the Card are required to seek authorisation from us for all of the transactions that are made. There are some circumstances where Merchants may require the associated Child Account to have an Available Balance greater than the value of the transaction the Cardholder wishes to make. The Cardholder will only be charged for the actual and final value of the transaction made. Merchants request this as they may need to access more funds than the Cardholder initially planned to spend. For example:
7.5.1 hotels, rental cars, and
7.5.2 internet Merchants – certain internet Merchant sites will, on registration or at checkout stage, send a request for payment authorisation to verify if funds are available. This will temporarily impact the Available Balance of a Card. A Cardholder should bear in mind that many sites will not deduct payment until goods are dispatched so consider this when checking Available Balance to make sure a Cardholder always has sufficient funds available to cover purchases.
7.6 There are some circumstances where Merchants may not be able to seek authorisation from us for the full value of the transaction. In such circumstances you should ensure the Child Account has sufficient funds available to complete the transaction. For example: Contactless ticketing on barriers at Transport for London.
7.7 A Card cannot be used in situations where it is not possible to obtain online authorisation that a Cardholder has sufficient balance for the transaction. For example: transactions on trains, ships, and some inflight purchases.
7.8 A Card cannot be used at self-service petrol pumps, it can be used to pay by taking it to the cashier.
7.9 A Card cannot be used for travel at any London underground barriers but can be used to purchase and top up an Oyster travel card at any London underground station.
7.10 A Card must not be used as a form of identification and must not be used for any illegal purpose or in any manner prohibited by law.
7.11 We may ask you to surrender the Card at anytime for a valid reason in accordance with the provisions in paragraph 20 of this Agreement. If we do so, we will give you back any Available Balance in accordance with paragraph 12 of this Agreement.
7.12 If a Merchant agrees to give a refund for a purchase made using a Card, we will credit the balance of the Child Account when we receive the funds from the Merchant.

11.2 Any outstanding Available Balance on the Child Account at expiry will remain yours for a period of six years from the expiry date. Subject to paragraph 12.3, you can request a refund anytime within this period by contacting Customer Services.

17.6 A Cardholder will not be liable for unauthorised transactions from Child Account after you have told us that a Card has been lost, stolen or compromised.
