11. Charges, payment and credit in your WM account

To use WM Services, you must purchase credit for your WM account. WM shall debit your account based on its rates applicable to each of the Services. WM will maintain these rates on its Sites. Payments are either made manually by you over one of the independent Payment Gateways which are provided on the WM Sites to enable you to buy credit, or through the application of the credit on a WM Top-up Voucher, or by electronic bank transfer, or through the automatic recharge function activated by you over one of the independent Payment Gateways which are provided on the WM Sites to enable you to buy credit. The automatic recharge function means that when your Account balance is below a threshold level, your Account will be automatically recharged with a preselected amount.

WM provides its service at the lowest possible rates that it can to end users. As such, the rates charged by the independent Payment Gateways which are provided on the WM Sites to enable you to buy credit are payable by you. They are clearly indicated when making payment. All stated rates and charges are exclusive of the Payment Gateway Fee.

The rates for the WM Services are published on its Sites. WM reserves the right to change the rates at any time without notice. If you do not wish to accept such adjustment of rates, you are entitled to terminate the Account with effect from the date on which the adjustment of rates becomes effective. You agree that by continuing to use the WM Services, following the adjustments of the rates, you accept such adjustments.

When travelling abroad and using the WM service in a country that is not the country associated with your mobile phone number, you may be charged the roaming cost of an incoming call by your own mobile phone provider for every call that you initiate using the WM Service. Your own mobile phone Provider, not WM, will charge you these incoming roaming call charges.

Any promotional bonus or free credit awarded or provided by WM is non-refundable, and may be cancelled or revoked without notice or cause by WM. WM shall not provide refunds on promotional of bonus free credit awarded.

WM provides account history under the “My Account” section on the WM Sites that contains information about aspects of your Account activity, which may change from time to time. WM may, at its election, also provide an e-mail receipt for aspects of your activity – including pre-payment for the WM Services. The Account History is the only statement of your Account that WM will provide to you. It is your responsibility to print or save a copy of your Account records, and to retain copies for your records. WM will use commercially reasonable efforts to correct any technical failures relating to the Account History within a reasonable time.

In the event of WM receiving any Regulatory or other Fine because of a user’s activities on the Sites or Services, WM shall be entitled to withhold or deduct the amount of such fine, charge or sum from any credit of the user on the WM Sites and/or Services, and/or recover the amount of such fine from you in any legal or remedial action that WM elects to follow as permitted under law.

If you choose to pay for the service by credit card, and we receive no payment from the credit card issuer, you must pay all amounts due, on demand. Your agreement with the credit card issuer governs the use of your credit card. So, please refer to that agreement to see what your rights and obligations are as a cardholder.

WM is not responsible for any errors that arise because of any human or mechanical or process error on the Sites of the independent Payment Gateways. Any such error is the responsibility of the independent Payment Gateway, and your recourse is directly to them.

There is no time limit in or by which the credit in your account must be used. However, WM may at its sole discretion request you to close your account and refund any credit therein, or may elect at its sole discretion to close your WM account and in that case, will refund any remaining credit therein. If credit is refunded it will be refunded in full to the account from which it originated, less any costs or charges – if any – per the relevant provisions of this agreement.

Any payment instrument (for example, the credit card or debit card) you use with your account must be in your name. If you use a payment method which gives you chargeback rights, you may only exercise this chargeback right in the event of a breach of agreement by WM or in the event of an unauthorized use of your payment instrument. You may not exercise a chargeback right for reasons which WM is not responsible for, or after you have used the Services and incurred costs for using the Services. If WM needs to investigate or take any actions about a chargeback raised by you, WM may charge you for our costs in doing so and may deduct such amount from your WM Account, and/or recover the amount of such fine from you in any legal or remedial action that WM elects to follow as permitted under law.

Any funds held in any currency or any Currency Wallet in your WM account on the WM Sites and/or Services will not earn any interest. These funds belong to the WM Account Holder. You may use the funds in your WM account for the purposes of communication by telephony and texting, and for all the related Services on the WM Sites and/or Services. All fees and conversion rates for all Services on the WM Sites and/or Services are displayed prior to being carried out, and you have the right to accept or cancel any transaction before carrying it out. If you accept any transaction, you confirm that you have seen, acknowledged and accepted the transaction terms, fees and costs, which will then be automatically deducted from your account credit balance.

The pre-paid credit in your Account on the WM Sites is Stored Credit, and you legally retain ownership thereof until you use your Stored Credit in transaction on or for the use of services on the WM Sites and/or Services and/or incur relevant costs for the use thereof for the use of the Services offered on the WM Sites and/or Services

You may exercise your legal right to request and receive a refund of your Stored Credit in your Account on the WM Sites and/or Services at any time. Unless your Account has been frozen or suspended, you will be required to implement the refund of your Stored Credit yourself, by using the “Refund Transfer” facility on the WM Sites and/or Services.

Please note that notwithstanding the fact that all funds in the WM Sites and/or Services are deemed to be clean funds due to their having passed through the international banking system prior to being admitted into the WM Sites and/or Services; and notwithstanding the fact that you continue to own all of your unused Stored Credit on the WM Sites and/or Services at all times except in a case of breach of terms under this Agreement and according to the remedies available or applicable according to such breach; and notwithstanding the fact that you are entitled to request and receive a refund of the your unused Stored Credit on demand (less any applicable costs for transfer thereof, or any outstanding costs or charges to WM); that the following conditions will apply:

  • To have your Stored Credit refunded to you, you will have had to have uploaded “Know Your Client” / “KYC” documentation which positively identifies you. The description of KYC documentation and the methodology for uploading it to the WM Sites and/or Services can be accessed on the WM Sites and/or Services under the heading “Upload KYC”.
     
  • Your Stored Credit may only be refunded to a bank account that is in a name which corresponds with your name as registered on the WM Sites and/or Services, and which corresponds with the name on your KYC documentation.
     
  • If the funds in your WM account comprise solely funds that you have paid into your WM account yourself, you will be entitled to a refund of the entire amount of Stored Credit in your account, whatever that amount may be, including if you have converted the currency originally prepaid into your account into a different currency, as long as only the amount of funds paid in solely by you – or less – is being refunded.
     
  • If the Stored Credit in your WM account include funds that have been added to your WM account by Inter-Webtel.mobi Top-up Transfers, then limits will be applied to the amount that you can refund from your WM account in one Refund Transfer. Such limits will be the limits that are governed by internationally accepted Anti Money Laundering regulations and advice, and in the case of WM Sites and/or Services will be a total of GBP 9 999.00 (Nine Thousand Nine Hundred and Ninety Nine Pounds Sterling) in a day or in one transaction.
     
  • Furthermore, if the Stored Credit in your Account is in excess of GBP 9 999.00, and you wish to exercise your right to a Refund Transfer, WM and/or any entity that WM may make use for the purposes of effecting such Refund Transfers, may request additional documentation relating to the provenance and/or purposes of such funds, and/or request Additional KYC or other documentation from you in relation to such Refund Transfer, prior to you being able to implement it
     
  • WM acknowledges that all funds in the WM Sites and/or Services system have already undergone Anti Money Laundering processes before entering the WM Sites and/or Services by virtue of having entered via the international banking system and are therefore all clean funds, and that you retain ownership of your unused Stored Credit in the Account, and that you have a right to request the refund thereof, and that you have a right to receive the refund thereof, and that you have a right to utilize the Refund Transfer facility in order to refund your Stored Credit (less any applicable Transfer charges and/or other charges or costs owed to WM), and that WM is not legally required to apply these restrictions. However, you acknowledge that WM has elected to voluntarily apply these restrictions so as to proactively participate in the international effort to counter Money Laundering, and therefore applies its right to set the terms and conditions for use of the WM Sites and/or Services, and that these processes are included in the Terms and Conditions for using the WM Sites and/or Services, and that if you do not agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions applicable to Refund Transfers then you may not use the WM Sites and/or Services. By clicking on the “Accept” button when joining the WM Sites and/or Services, other than agreeing to all Terms and Conditions of this License and Agreement to use the WM Sites and/or Services, you specifically agree to the Terms and Conditions relating to the refund of your Stored Credit, and the use of the Refund Transfer facility. You furthermore acknowledge that WM may, in the event of suspicious activity on your Account (as determined by WM and in the context of Anti Money Laundering processes and best practice), freeze your Account and/or enquire from you as to the nature or reason for such activity and/or refer the matter to a relevant law-enforcement agency for review. The list of such relevant law enforcement agencies can be seen by clicking this link (although it should be noted that this is not an exhaustive list, and WM reserves the right to refer such matter to the law-enforcement agency or agencies and/or other regulatory body that it deems appropriate, at its sole discretion):

  • If your personal name or the name of your Company appears on any international list of Prohibited Persons or Companies or Organizations and/or Criminal Persons or Companies or Organizations and/or Persons or Companies or Organizations under Sanctions and/or Persons or Companies or Organizations that are for any reason under suspicion by any recognized law enforcement agency or regulatory agency internationally either before, during or after your joining the WM Sites and/or Services, WM will act according to the legal requirements to act in or under any such circumstances, which action will be determined by the instruction of the relevant legal orders in respect of such a Person / Company / Organization, which can include automatic freezing of your WM account – including any Stored Credit therein – and referral thereof to the relevant law-enforcement and/or Regulatory agency.

No Financial Services Compensation Schemes apply to your WM account or the Stored Credit therein.

If you breach or do not comply with any of these terms, then WM may immediately, without prejudice to any of WM’s other rights and without notice to you – (a) claim payment of all outstanding amounts due to WM; (b) stop or suspend your use of any of the services; (c) end the agreement; and/or; (d) claim damages from you, and/or (e) turn over funds that are deemed to be the proceeds of money laundering to the relevant law enforcement or confiscation agency.
