By sending the registration form to the Issuer, the User specifically requests and agrees to conclude the Contract through a telecommunication device through the Issuer’s website.

This Activation qualifies as the User’s legal declaration to conclude the Contract.

3.5.

The Issuer shall retain the data related to the Top-up by bank card and E-money transactions as per Section 3.11 so that the User connects such data in case of their future registration under the present Contract to the Barion account and wallet created this way and therefore the E-money transactions and Top-ups performed prior to the creation of the Barion account and wallet are displayed in the Barion wallet in the Barion account history for the User.

If payment is made to more than one Sellers and/or Contributors, the distribution of the Sending money transaction amounts between the Sellers and/or the Contributors and the proportion of money credited to their Barion account shall be determined by the Facilitator. Reservation and Recurring payment as defined in Section 6.2.2.b)–c) may be applied together with this payment method.
  5. e) Bank card acceptance: the execution of any of the means of payment specified in Section 6.2.2.a)–d) by the Issuer in a way that the Customer, instead of Sending money, pays the price of the goods or the services to the Merchant or the Seller through a bank card Top-up as per Section 8.7.

In this case, a Withdrawal transaction as per Section 9.7 shall be executed on the Merchant’s or the Seller’s Barion account. The Merchant or the Seller may only initiate the Refund up to the amount of the bank card Top-up transaction to be refunded and by specifying the bank card Top-up transaction to be refunded.

If the User does not have Sufficient funds available on the Barion account to execute the Transaction Orders, the Transaction Order without Sufficient funds shall not be recorded by the Issuer. Instead, the Issuer shall consider the Transaction Order as not received for performance and, unless otherwise provided by law, it shall notify the User of the fact of the rejection and, unless it is prohibited by law and if possible, it shall also notify the User of the reason of the rejection and of the procedure to correct the factual errors that have led to the rejection. The Issuer shall not be liable for any damage resulting from the non-performance of the rejected Transaction Order. In the case of only partially available Sufficient funds, no partial performance shall be executed by the Issuer.

7.6. The Issuer shall always examine whether the User is entitled to give the Transaction Order.

By initiating the Transaction Order, the User specifically agrees that the Issuer may release the data related to the Transaction Order and necessary for executing the Transaction Order to the persons involved in the execution of the Transaction Order, including in particular to the credit institution managing the Issuer’s escrow account.

7.11. The Issuer shall notify the User of the acceptance of the Transaction Order and of its performance or rejection through a confirmation sent via the Barion wallet. If there is no confirmation, it may indicate the failure of the acceptance, performance or rejection of the Transaction Order, therefore the Issuer may deem such a Transaction Order unissued. For this reason, in this case, as part of its obligation to mitigate losses, the User is obliged to indicate to the Issuer that no confirmation was received, or to check the confirmation in the Barion wallet.

7.12. The Issuer shall be entitled to ask questions from the User before the performance of the Transaction Orders regarding the nature/background of the Transaction Order. It shall also be entitled to execute the due diligence of the User as per Section 18.

7.13. The Issuer may determine Transaction Order thresholds in the Prices & Conditions for individual Transaction Orders. Beyond the Transaction Order thresholds specified in the Prices & Conditions, the Issuer shall also be entitled to monitor transactions on the basis of internal thresholds in order to prevent or stop misuses of E-money or money laundering or terrorist financing. However, the Issuer shall not publicly release these internal thresholds for security reasons.

7.14. Transaction Orders cannot be cancelled or modified.

Before the performance of any other Transaction Orders, the Issuer shall be entitled to correct incorrect debit and credit transactions executed by the Issuer on the Barion account without notifying the User in advance. The Issuer shall notify the User of the correction through the Barion wallet and in the next Account Statement.

8. E-money Issuing and Top-up

8.1. The Issuer shall issue E-money at the request of the User and after the User makes available the consideration for the E-money. E-money issuing is always executed at par value and in the currency of the Top-up.

8.2. The User shall request the E-money issuing through making the consideration for the E-money available to the Issuer, i.e. through Top-up. The Top-up may be executed by bank transfer, bank card payment or cash at a place of payment specified by the Issuer. The currency of the Issuing order may only be the currency of the Top-up, i.e. the currency in which the consideration for the E-money is made available to the Issuer (i.e. in which it is credited to the Issuer’s bank account). A Top-up transaction by the User shall qualify as an Issuing order made to the Issuer. In the course of the Top-up, the User shall be obliged to specify the data defined by the Issuer in advance in order to clearly identify the Barion account to be topped up and to allow the Issuing to be completed on the basis of the Top-up.

8.3. The current list of locations where cash deposit is possible is available on the Issuer’s website.

8.4. The Issuer informs the User that in the event that the Top-up is performed by bank transfer and fillér is also transferred to the Issuer, then the Issuer shall perform rounding in the Issuing so that it shall not take the fillér amount into consideration. Accordingly, the Issuer shall Issue the amount of electronic money corresponding to the amount made available to it in HUF and no electronic money shall be issued on the basis of the amount in fillér due to this rounding and the amount in fillér shall be due to the Issuer on the basis of the rounding thereof. Considering that the fillér had been withdrawn from circulation, this provision does not violate the principle of Issuing at par value.

8.5. In case of Top-up by bank card in the event that the bank card is refused by the Acceptor of the Issuer or the Issuer due to the lack of Sufficient funds or any other reason, i.e. no consideration of e-money is made available to the Issuer, the Top-up shall fail and no Issuing shall be performed.

Following the Top-up, the Issuing order given with the Top-up shall be accepted by the Issuer when the consideration for the E-money is made available to the Issuer and it shall be processed by the Issuer every day between 00:00 and 24:00. The Issuer shall execute its tasks under the accepted Issuing order on the relevant day.

8.6. In the course of Top-up, the Issuer shall not examine whether or not the person paying the consideration for the E-money during the Top-up is the same as the User. By concluding the Contract, in the case of a Top-up that clearly indicates the User’s Barion wallet or account, the User specifically and irrevocably requests the Issuer to issue E-money to the User.

8.7. In the case of bank card acceptance through the Barion Smart Gateway service, the Top-up is executed by a third party other than the User, which means that in this case the User and the person executing the Top-up, i.e. the person paying the consideration for the E-money, are always different persons. By using the Barion Smart Gateway service and the related service, in the case of a Top-up that clearly indicates the User’s Barion account, the User specifically and irrevocably requests the Issuer to issue E-money to the User.

8.8. If the consideration for the E-money is made available to the Issuer through a Top-up in a way that the User’s Barion wallet or account can be clearly identified, the Issuer shall issue E-money for the User and it shall create and keep it on the User’s Barion account. In this case, the Top-up is successful.

8.9. E-money issuing shall only be executed in the case of a successful Top-up. The Issuer may and shall be obliged to issue E-money only after the consideration for the E-money is received by the Issuer.

8.10. If the consideration for the E-money is made available to the Issuer through a Top-up in a way that the User’s Barion wallet or account is non-existent or cannot be clearly identified, the Issuer shall not issue E-money for the User. In this case, the Top-up is unsuccessful and no E-money is issued.

8.11. The Issuer shall be entitled to charge a fee as defined in the Prices & Conditions for Top-ups (including bank card acceptance through the Barion Smart Gateway) regardless of whether or not it is successful.

8.12. In the course of an unsuccessful Top-up, after deducting its fees payable in the case of a Top-up, the Issuer shall handle the received consideration for the E-money as follows:

  1. a) If the necessary data required for repayment to the person paying the consideration for the E-money can be established, the amount shall be repaid to the person making the payment. In this case, the Issuer shall be entitled to charge the relevant fee specified in the Prices & Conditions.
  2. b) If the necessary data required for repayment to the person paying the consideration for the E-money is not available, the amount shall be taken into responsible custody until clear identification of the payer. The responsible custody is established without the obligation to pay interest. The Issuer shall be entitled to charge a fee as specified in the Prices & Conditions for the custody.

8.13. In the case of a successful Top-up, the Issuer is entitled to deduct the costs thereof from the E-money issued on the Barion account of the User and/or require the User to pay the corresponding amount if the payment service provider from which the Top-up is received by the User charges (back) a certain amount to the Issuer’s account.

8.14. Chargeback claims:

8.14.1. If the Issuing is a result of a bank card Top-up and if, regarding the consideration for the E-money paid to the Issuer by bank card, the card company or issuer of the bank card, the card acquirer of the Issuer or any other person uses a chargeback against the Issuer, i.e. it refuses to pay this consideration for the E-money to the Issuer, withdraws the amount from the Issuer either temporarily or permanently or otherwise requires the Issuer to pay it back, or threatens to do any of the above, the Issuer shall be entitled to withdraw from circulation the E-money based on this Top-up as E-money issued without consideration or temporarily suspend the User’s right of disposal over such amount of e-money or refuse the Withdrawal Order for such amount until the final inspection of the Chargeback claim and to withhold such amount.

8.14.2 The User – both the Customer performing bank card Top-up and the Merchant – shall be obliged to cooperate with the Issuer in inspecting the Chargeback claim. Upon request of the Issuer, both the Customer performing bank card Top-up and the Merchant shall be obliged to forthwith provide the Issuer with any document and information requested from the Issuer by the card company or issuer of the bank card, the acquirer partner of the Issuer or any other person entitled for chargeback, so that the Issuer can fulfil such request. Taking this into consideration, the User as the Customer the bank card Top-up expressly authorises the Issuer to obtain the information and documents from the Merchant required for the inspection of the Chargeback claim in relation to the bank card Top-up initiated by it on the website of the Merchant including the data of the purchase constituting the basis of the Top-up and that the Merchant transfers such information to the Issuer in order to successfully inspect the Chargeback claim. Both the Customer performing the bank card Top-up and the Merchant accept that the Issuer shall be entitled to forward such information and documents and any other information otherwise available to the Issuer in relation to the bank card Top-up to the card company, the issuer of the bank card and the acquirer partner of the Issuer or any other person performing chargeback in order to successfully inspect the Chargeback claim. The Issuer hereby informs the User that all data transfer specified in the present section is the legitimate interest of the Issuer and the Merchant in order to avoid unfounded chargeback claims, be able to defend themselves against such claims, and to avoid any related financial losses.

8.14.3. Chargeback shall otherwise be governed by the provisions of the policies of the card company, the issuer of the bank card and acquirer partner of the Issuer or any other person entitled for chargeback; the Issuer shall act accordingly in relation with the withdrawal of e-money from circulation, suspension of right of disposal over e-money and refusal of the Withdrawal order and the Issuer shall be entitled to withdraw e-money from circulation, suspend right of disposal over e-money and reject the Withdrawal order for the same period of time and under the same terms and conditions as such Chargeback claims.

8.14.4 Costs related to the withdrawal of e-money from circulation, suspension of right of disposal over e-money and refusal of a Withdrawal order shall be borne by the User helding such e-money and/or involved in the bank card Top-up; furthermore the Issuer hereby excludes any liability for damages arising in connection with the withdrawal of e-money from circulation, suspension of right of disposal over e-money and refusal of a Withdrawal order. Provisions set forth in Section 13. shall be applicable upon withdrawal of e-money from circulation, suspension of right of disposal over e-money and refusal of a Withdrawal order.

In lack of such data, the Issuer shall be entitled to refuse to accept the Withdrawal order. The currency of the Withdrawal order may only be the currency of the affected Barion account.

9.3. The Issuer shall only perform the Withdrawal Orders given by the User if, at the time of accepting the Transaction Order, there are Sufficient funds available on the User’s Barion account for executing the Transaction Order and for covering the Fees payable to the Issuer and specified in the Prices & Conditions.

9.4. On the basis of a Withdrawal order, the Issuer shall withdraw the E-money specified in the Transaction Order from the User’s Barion account.

In this case, Withdrawal is unsuccessful. If the User’s Contract terminates in the meantime, the thus remaining amount shall be in the responsible custody of the Issuer and the Issuer shall notify the User of this.

These fees, commissions and other costs shall become due immediately unless a different due date is specified in the Prices & Conditions. The Issuer shall charge the User for the fee, commission and other costs simultaneously with the performance of the given Transaction Order or Service. The fee, commission and other costs shall be debited to the E-money on the Barion account or, if it follows from the type of Service (e.g. responsible custody), it shall be debited to the money handled by the Issuer to the benefit of the User.

11.3. The fee of the responsible custody shall fall due monthly in arrears; it shall be charged by the Issuer on the day each month that corresponds to the start date of the custody.

11.4. If in the case of an E-money transaction the fee specified in the Prices & Conditions is borne by the payee, the Issuer shall be entitled to charge the payee for this fee and deduct this from the credited amount after the amount has been made available to the payee.

11.5. The Issuer shall be entitled to offset any of its claims against the User under this Contract. The Issuer may exercise its offset right in a way that it may deduct the claim against the User from the amount of E-money available on the User’s Barion account.

11.6. If the User does not perform the User’s obligations to the Issuer when due, the Issuer shall be entitled to involve and use third parties in the course of asserting and enforcing the claim against the User. All the costs of using the assistance of a third party are to be borne by the User.

12. User ID and Password, PIN Code, Fingerprint Security, Blocking by the User

12.1. The User ID and the Password shall be specified by the User when the Contract is concluded.

12.2. The User ID is a personal identifier which, along with the Password, is necessary to identify the User clearly and individually. The Issuer shall only accept a User ID that meets the criteria set by the Issuer. The Issuer may request multiple User IDs from the User depending on their uses, and the Issuer may limit the purposes of their use. Subsequently, the User may not modify the User ID or may only modify it in limited cases as specified by the Issuer.

12.3. The Password is a personal and secret identifier which may not be disclosed to others and which, along with the User ID, is necessary to identify the User clearly and individually. The User may modify the Password in the Barion wallet at any time. If the User changes the Password, following the modification, the User is identified through the new Password.

12.4. The User shall be obliged to specify a Password that is at least 8 characters long and includes at least one number. The User is obliged to choose a secure Password. The Password shall not qualify as secure if it is the User’s own birth date, address, license plate number of the User’s motor vehicle or a similar password that may be easily deduced about the User’s person. The User shall be liable for any damage arising out of a non-secure Password choice.

12.5. The User is obliged to handle the Password confidentially and securely and the User may not disclose it to third parties. The User shall take all necessary measures with due care in order to prevent the disclosure of the Password to third parties. The User shall be responsible for the secure retention of the Password and for its proper and lawful use, and the User shall be obliged to act with due care expected in the given situation in the interest of keeping the Password secure. The User may not record or store the Password at the same place as the User ID. The Password shall have to be kept and handled at a distance and separated from the personal computer operating the Barion system at the given point in time. The User shall also be obliged to ensure that no unauthorised person may have access to the Password during the use of the Service. If an unauthorised person uses the E-money service with the User’s Password, until proven to the contrary, the Parties shall consider that the unauthorised person’s access to the Password has been exclusively the result of the User’s wilful or grossly negligent breach of Contract, and the damage shall be borne by the User.

12.6. In the case of the Barion mobile application, the User ID and the Password are encrypted and stored in the mobile application. Through the Barion mobile application, the User, following the encrypted storage of the User ID and the Password in the mobile application, may, at the User’s discretion, log in to the Barion wallet without entering

  • with a PIN code, or
  • through fingerprint security, or
  • without giving any other individual identifier

The PIN code is a personal and secret identifier which may not be disclosed to others and which, along with the User ID, is necessary to identify the User, on the basis of the User’s instructions, clearly and individually in the course of logging in the Barion mobile application. The rules concerning the Password shall apply to the handling of the PIN code and to keeping it secure.

Fingerprint security is required for the unambiguous identification of the User in the course of logging in the Barion mobile application. Fingerprint security may be used if the device used by the User allows for that. Fingerprint security is performed by the operation system of the device so the fingerprint is not transferred to, processed or stored by the Issuer.

In the Barion mobile application, the User may use the option that no other unique identifier (Password, PIN code, fingerprint security) shall be obliged for logging in the mobile application. The Issuer expressly warns the User that such form of use qualifies as low-security use. Liability for any damage resulting from this shall be borne by the User except for the cases specified in Sections 14.3. and 14.5.

12.7. Regardless of whether the User uses one of the unique identifiers specified in Section 12.6. to log in to the Barion mobile application, or whether the User does not specify any unique identifier in the base of any use as per Section 12.6., access to the Barion wallet, the use of the Barion wallet Services and the giving of Transaction Orders are still provided with the simultaneous entry of the User ID and the Password in a way that, after they have been stored, the User need not enter them again in the mobile application.

12.8. The Issuer shall execute the transactions initiated and Services used with the simultaneous entering of the User ID and the Password as instructions given by the User. The User shall be responsible for all Transaction Orders and for the use of all the Services that are initiated through the joint use of the User’s User ID and Password. Any act of disposal or use of Service initiated with the joint use of the User’s User ID and Password shall be regarded by the Issuer in all circumstances as an act of disposal or Service use originating from the User. The joint use of the User ID and the Password shall qualify as an authorisation by the User. In this case, the Issuer shall not examine the circumstances of use of the Service or the instruction and whether the Password and the User ID have been used legitimately. Liability for any damage resulting from unauthorised use shall be borne by the User, except for the cases specified in Sections 14.3. and 14.5.

12.9. If the User forgets the Password, the User may request a new Password through the Issuer’s website following the identification of the User as required by the Issuer.

12.10. In the User’s own interest, the User shall be obliged to regularly monitor the Transaction Orders and acts of disposal executed in the Barion wallet and check the statement, and if the User sees any irregularity or unauthorised access, the User shall be obliged to notify the Issuer and initiate the blocking of the access.

12.11. The User shall be obliged to to notify the Issuer without delay if the User loses possession of the User’s Password, PIN code or, in the case of the Barion mobile application, mobile phone or if they are disclosed to unauthorised third parties or if a non-authorised Transaction Order has been initiated with the Password or if the User learns of any other circumstance on the basis of which it can be presumed that the Password and the PIN code are no longer confidential. In such cases, the User is obliged to initiate the blocking of the Password with the Issuer in accordance with Section 12.12.

12.12. The Issuer shall ensure that the Password, and in this way all Services, can be blocked at any time. The User shall be obliged to submit blocking notifications in the Barion wallet or on the Issuer’s hotline. The notification may be made on any day of the year and 24 hours a day. Following blocking, the Issuer shall no longer execute E-money transactions on the basis of Transaction Orders made with the Password.

12.13. The time of notification of the blocking request shall be the time when the request is registered by the Issuer.

12.14. The Issuer shall not be liable for any damage the User suffers as a result of the blocking.

12.15. The Issuer shall be entitled to reject the notification if the identity of the person making the notification is not clear and there is doubt that it has been made by an entitled User (e.g. the User discloses identification data incorrectly). The Issuer shall examine, with due care that can be expected in the given circumstances, the identity of the person making the notification and whether this person shall be entitled to make this notification. If it is proven that the notification was made by a person not entitled to the notification, the Issuer shall not be liable for any damage caused by the suspension of the Service or the blocking of the Password if it was not possible to detect the misleading nature of the notification despite exercising due care as normal in the given circumstances.

12.16. The Issuer shall be entitled to charge a fee as specified in the Prices & Conditions for the blocking.

12.17. The User may request the Issuer to issue a free-of-charge certificate on one occasion regarding the time and content of each notification related to Blocking. The Issuer is entitled to charge a fee for other certificates.

13. Suspension of the User’s Right of Disposal, Blocking by the Issuer, Withdrawal the E-money from Circulation

13.1. The Issuer may block the User’s Password, suspend the User’s right of disposal concerning any or all of the Services or the performance of any or all Transaction Orders given by the User, or reject the performance of the Transaction Order if

  1. a) the User does not respond to a query sent by the Issuer in accordance with this Contract within the deadline and in the form specified by the Issuer or fails to comply with the related instructions of the Issuer provided that the query qualifies as being of utmost importance on the basis of a mandatory rule of law or official requirement concerning the Service or according to the reasonable assessment of the Issuer;
  2. b) the User fails to fulfil its reporting obligation specified by law, by an authority’s requirement or by the Issuer in the Contract regarding changes in the User’s data or regarding other subject ;
  3. c) the Issuer is unable to contact the User on the basis of the data specified by the User despite taking all the necessary measures that may be expected from the Issuer;
  4. d) the User has breached any obligation under the Contract;
  5. e) the Issuer detects a form of use or an error that threatens the secure operation of the Barion system;
  6. f) in the case of a notification made as per Section 12.12.;
  7. g) the suspicion of money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud or other misuse arises in connection with the User’s conduct, the Barion account, the Barion wallet, the Acceptor services or other Services;
  8. h) a Chargeback claim as per Section 8.14. is made regarding the Acceptor services or such claim is threatening, until such Chargeback claim is inspected and completely closed;
  9. i) fraud or some other form of misuse is suspected in connection with the Issuing, the Withdrawal, other E-money service or an already issued E-money amount;
  10. j) the suspicion of the infringement of any right under copyright or other intellectual property right in any jurisdiction or the suspicion of violation of any property right or legislation arises in connection with the User’s conduct, the Barion account, the Barion wallet, the Acceptor services or other Services;
  11. k) the Issuer considers it necessary for other security reasons.

13.2. The User acknowledges that if either the User or a third party gives a Transaction Order that is suspected to constitute fraud, or a suspicion of unauthorised or fraudulent use of the Password, the Barion account or the Barion wallet or the Acceptor services or any other Services arises, the Issuer may block the Password and/or the Service immediately in accordance with Section 13.1. Regardless of whether the E-money has been obtained by the User through Issuing to the User, through an E-money transaction or otherwise, the Issuer may withdraw the issued E-money from circulation, block it or debit it to the account if the suspicion of money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud or other misuse arises in connection with the Issuing of the E-money or the E-money services executed with the E-money including the fraud or other misuse with bank cards in case of bank card payment or Top-up.

13.3. In the cases of Sections 13.1. d), g), h) and i) under the suspension and rejection of Transaction Orders the Issuer shall also be entitled to lock or reserve the e-money amount available on the User’s Barion account up to the amount involved in the breach of obligation, suspicion or Chargeback claim in order to cover expected financial claims arising from breach of obligation, suspicion or Chargeback claim including potential future losses, and to completely suspend the User’s right of disposal in terms of such amount. Thus the reserved amount of e-money shall be taken out of the unlimited disposal of the User.

In the event the amount covering the total amount of the expected financial claim is not available on the Barion account of the User, the Issuer shall also be entitled to reserve partial amounts. In the event that the total amount required for the reservation is not available on the User’s Barion account and therefore the Issuer was unable to reserve the amount of the expected financial claim or was able to reserve only a part of it, the User shall be obliged to place the total amount of the expected financial claim on their Barion account for an appropriate collateral and reservation within 2 workdays of the relevant notice of the Issuer. In the event that the User fails to fulfil this obligation, it shall qualify as gross breach of contract and the Issuer shall be entitled to exercise its rights as per Section 21.

In the event that the breach of obligation is terminated or the inspection thereof is closed or if the suspicion or Chargeback claim is terminated or the inspection thereof is closed and on the basis thereof the Issuer has no financial claim to the User including the indemnification for damages, the Issuer shall release the reservation. In the event that the breach of obligation is terminated or the inspection thereof is closed or if the suspicion or Chargeback claim is terminated or the inspection thereof is closed and on the basis thereof the Issuer has a financial claim to the User including the indemnification for damages, the Issuer shall acquire the amount of e-money under reservation up to the amount of its financial claim and debit the Barion account of the User by such amount and it shall release the reservation of the remaining amount.

13.4. If the Password is blocked, the Service is suspended or the E-money is withdrawn from circulation, blocked or debited to the account, the Issuer, simultaneously with the blocking, the suspension, the withdrawal from circulation, the locking or the debiting or without delay after these events, shall notify the User of the fact of the blocking, the suspension, the withdrawal from circulation, the locking or the debiting and of the reasons of the measure. The Issuer shall be not be bound by the obligation to provide information if fulfilling the obligation would jeopardise the security of the Issuer’s operation or is prohibited by law. If the reason of the blocking, suspension, withdrawal from circulation, locking or debit no longer exists or the suspicion proves to be unfounded, the Issuer shall cancel the blocking, suspension, E-money locking or debit it has initiated or it shall issue a new Password for the User or it shall re-issue the E-money into circulation.

13.5 The costs related to blocking, suspension or withdrawing E-money from circulation under this Section 13. shall be borne by the User. Also, the Issuer hereby excludes liability for any damage caused by the blocking, suspension, withdrawal of the E-money from circulation, locking and debit.

14. Liability

14.1. The User shall be obliged to use the Barion system and the Services properly and take all the measures that can be expected from the User in connection with compliance with the security requirements. The User shall be fully liable for any damage the User causes to anyone.

At the request of the Issuer, the User shall be obliged to make supporting documents and other evidence available to the Issuer regarding the request. The Issuer shall examine the request without delay on the basis of the request and the submitted evidence.

If the User fails to make available the documents or information necessary for assessing the request despite demanded by the Issuer, within 15 days from the receipt of the Issuer’s demand, the Issuer shall be entitled to reject the request without examining on the merits or taking action.

If the Issuer accepts the User’s request for correction, it shall immediately take action to repay the affected E-money amount to the User and to compensate the User for any loss the User has suffered.

In the case of a request for the correction of a payment transaction that has been unauthorised (excluding unauthorised use of the Password, or use of a Password that the User has lost possession of or that has been stolen) or has been authorised but executed incorrectly, the Issuer, possibly through certification in the given case, shall be obliged to prove that the payment transaction objected to has been approved by the User, the transaction has been recorded correctly and the performance has not been blocked by a technical error or malfunction.

14.3. In the case of damage caused by such unauthorised E-money transactions that have been executed with a Password that the User has lost possession of or that has been stolen from the User, or that are a result of unauthorised Password use, the User shall bear the loss up to the amount equivalent to HUF 45,000 before the notification or blocking as per Section 12.12. occurs regarding the loss of possession, stealing or unauthorised use. The User shall be liable exclusively for any damage caused by any late blocking or notification as per Section 12.12.

14.4. The Issuer reserves the right to initiate proceedings against the User, if the User or another person with the User’s knowledge abuses the Password or the Barion system.

14.5. The User shall not be liable if the damage has been caused by a personalised process that qualifies as a cash equivalent payment instrument and with the use of an information technology or telecommunication device, or without personal security tools (including a Password), or if the Issuer has failed to fulfil the obligation of providing the User with the opportunity of notification as per Section 12.12.

14.6. The Issuer shall not be responsible if it can prove that the damage arising in connection with the unauthorised E-money transaction has been caused by the User’s fraudulent conduct or that the damage is a result of the User’s willful or grossly negligent violation of the User’s notification obligations. The Issuer shall be exempted from liability if it can prove that the damage is a result of the wilful or grossly negligent breach of the User’s obligations specified in the Contract, including but not limited to the obligations to keep secure and manage correctly the Password, the PIN code and the mobile phone.

14.7. Following the notification as per Section 12.12., the Issuer shall bear the losses caused by such unauthorised E-money transactions that have been executed with a Password that the User has lost possession of or that has been stolen from the User, or that are a result of unauthorised Password use.

14.8. In the course of its activities, the Issuer shall take into account the interests of the User as much as possible under the given circumstances, and shall act with due care as may be expected from the Issuer.

14.9. The Issuer shall not be responsible for the consequences of a false or forged Transaction Order if it was not possible to detect the false or forged character of the order through due care exercised during the ordinary course of business.

14.10. The Issuer shall not be responsible for any damage caused by reasons beyond the Issuer’s control or reasons outside the scope of interest of the Issuer, including but not limited to errors of telecommunication lines, Internet connection, data transmission systems or postal services.

14.11. The Issuer shall not be responsible for any damage caused by reasons that the Issuer cannot possibly prevent or influence, including in particular damage caused by Force Majeure, the measures of domestic or foreign authorities or any disturbance to the Issuer’s operation. Consequently, the Issuer shall not be liable for any damage resulting from the above even if these factors result in the Issuer temporarily cancelling or limiting the Service.

14.12. The Issuer shall not be liable for any damage suffered by the User if the damage is caused by an error or omission of the Acceptor or the Merchant during the execution of a Purchase or any other E-money transaction. If there is a dispute between the User on the one hand and the Acceptor or the Merchant on the other hand in which the Issuer is not involved, the User’s liability towards the Issuer is not affected by the dispute or any counterclaim or offset right that the User may make or exercise against the Acceptor or the Merchant.

14.13. If the Transaction Order is executed through the use of a unique identifier (e.g. a User ID or a payment account number), the Transaction Order shall be considered performed regarding the payee specified through the unique identifier. The Issuer shall not be responsible for non-performance or deficient performance regarding the Transaction Order if an incorrect unique identifier is used.

14.14. If the User discloses additional data beyond the data and unique identifiers specified by the Issuer to the User and necessary for performance, the Issuer shall be responsible for the performance of the Transaction Order as indicated through the unique identifier.

14.15. The Issuer shall take all the measures that can be generally expected in the given situation to recover the amount of the Transaction Order. If the Issuer re-acquires the amount of the Transaction Order, it shall be entitled to charge an extra fee as defined in the Prices & Conditions.

14.16. If the E-money transaction has been initiated by the User as the Payer, the Issuer shall be responsible for the deficient performance of the E-money transaction. If the Issuer is liable, it shall be obliged to forthwith return to the paying party the amount of the non-performed or incorrectly performed E-money transaction and to restore the original state (as if the incorrect E-money transaction had never taken place).

14.17. If the User is the payee of an E-money transaction, the Issuer shall be obliged to immediately make available to the User as a payee the amount of the E-money transaction and credit it to the User’s Barion account.

14.18. At the request of the User as the paying party - regardless of the liability for non-performance or deficient performance of the E-money transaction - the Issuer shall be obliged to act with due care as generally expected in the given circumstances in the interest of tracking the non-performed or deficiently performed E-money transaction and to notify the User of the result of the tracking.

14.19. The Issuer shall be exempted from liability if it can prove that its failure to fulfil an obligation related to the execution of the Service, the authorisation of the E-money transaction and the correction of the E-money transaction has been a result of an external factor beyond the scope of activities of the Issuer (Force Majeure) or a provision of legislation or of a legal act of the European Union.
