The account holder set out in the Agreement.

1. AUTHORISATION

By signing your Card and/or using it you accept these terms and conditions in full and agree to comply with them at all times. It also means that you agree to pay us for any Goods and Services our Suppliers supply to you or to the Cardholder.

2. USING THE CARD

The Card is valid until its expiry date or until you or we cancel it, whichever happens earlier. Only the Cardholder can use the Card. You must ensure that only a Cardholder knows and is able to use the PIN for any Card or if a Card does not have a PIN associated to it you must ensure that the Card can only be used for any driver name or vehicle registration embossed on the Card. You must make sure that the Cardholder signs their name or writes their vehicle registration number on the back of the  Card (or does both) matching the driver name or vehicle registration embossed on the front of the Card to prevent unauthorised use which you will be liable for.  The Cardholder must present the Card to the Supplier before they buy Goods and Services so that the Supplier is aware that they are about to make a sale as an agent for us. The Cardholder must make sure that the correct vehicle registration number and mileage has been recorded on a voucher for each purchase. The Cardholder must make sure that they enter the correct PIN when using a Chip and PIN Card and you are liable for all Goods and Services purchased using a Card once a correct PIN has been entered at the point of sale terminal or after the Cardholder signs to accept the transaction where a Card does not have a PIN and a signature is required. It is important that you take all reasonable steps to prevent misuse of your Cards and to identify any unauthorised or fraudulent activity relating to your Cards or your Card numbers. These steps should include: ensuring that pins are not known by anyone other than a Cardholder, checking that your Cards are correctly embossed with your company name and one or both of the Cardholdername and vehicle registration, checking your invoices and any reports that you receive for any unauthorised or unusual activity and promptly investigating any suspect/unusual transactions that we notify you of.

3. CARDS

Each Card will show your name and the expiry date. You must ensure that the Card is embossed to show the Cardholder’s name or the registration number of the vehicle it is used for (or both). If the signature panel on the back of the Card is marked or is not filled in correctly, a Supplier may confiscate the Card. Cards are issued with a PIN which must be used in conjunction with Chip and PIN Cards. Cardholders will have 5 attempts to enter a correct PIN at the point of validation of a transaction.  If the correct PIN is not entered after 5 attempts the Card will be automatically blocked and neither you nor the Cardholder will be able to use the Card again. In the event that a Card has been blocked it will be necessary for us to issue you with a replacement Card. If a PIN is lost or misplaced, Cardholders can request a re-advice from us (please see clause 25 for our contact details or you can contact us via our Website). We may charge  for issuing replacement Cards. Suppliers may also refuse to accept the Card if it is not being used in line with the terms and conditions that we agree with Suppliers. If we provide you with a bearer Card, a Non PIN Card, an ID bearerCard or a voucher Card you are subject to the additional terms applicable to such Cards from time to time. These terms are available on request and you must make sure that you keep to them.  We will also charge you per voucher Card, bearer Card or ID bearer Card. Details of these are set out in our  Standard Charges.

4. ACCOUNTS

Each week (or other period we have agreed with you in writing) we will send you an invoice, or produce an invoice on the Website, showing all purchases made using the Cards, less any credits or refunds.  We may charge you if you require a paper or non-standard invoice. You must pay the invoice in full, by direct debit, within 7 days (or other period we have agreed with you in writing) of the date of the invoice (the Payment Due Date).  We may charge you for non-standard payment methods or payment periods. If you do not pay any amount by the Payment Due Date we may charge interest at a rate of 5% over the National Westminster Bank Plc base rate. We work out interest on a day-to-day basis on any amount outstanding on the Payment Due Date (including unpaid interest) and also on any Goods and Services purchased by you with Cards but not yet invoiced to you until you pay the outstanding invoice in full. We may also charge you a late payment fee.  Alternatively we may charge you interest and late payment fees in accordance with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1988 and the Late Payment of Commercial Debts Regulations 2002 (or any amendments to these statutory provisions). We will continue to charge interest until you have paid the amount due, whether or not the Agreement has ended or a court judgment has been made. Late payment may also trigger a risk based fee being applied to your purchases (as set out in clause 8) and/or result in the removal of any discounts you may have the benefit of (as set out in clause 7). If any amount is still unpaid more than seven days after the Payment Due Date, we may cancel any or all of your Cards and end the Agreement (clause 13 of the Agreement applies to any Cards that we cancel). We may also place your Cards on temporary stop the day that any payment becomes overdue. We may apply an administration charge if we do not receive a payment because there is not enough money in your account to cover the direct debit or because you have cancelled the direct debit or if for any other reason that is not our fault we are unable to collect a payment due by direct debit. We will charge you a network service fee for processing all Card transactions. We may also charge for any copies of invoices or sales vouchers you ask us to send you for transactions.  You agree that we are not obliged to carry out any investigations into, nor provide information in relation to nor copies of, invoices or sales vouchers dating back more than six months.  We may charge you if you require us to provide any non-standard account management activities or for any non-standard services. We may charge if you wish to transfer your account to a different type of Card issued by us or terminate the Agreement and enter into a new Agreement with us under which we will issue a different type of Cards to you.  We may charge for terminating or transferring your exiting account or for opening your new account, but not both. You must notify us promptly about any issue or dispute that relates to your Cards and Goods and Services purchased with Cards or Card numbers.  We do not have to carry out any investigations that relate to transactions that took place more than three months before you notified us of a dispute.

5. PAYMENTS

We will use your payments and any credits or refunds you are entitled to first to pay off any interest you owe us and second to reduce any amounts you owe. If you make a claim against any Supplier or other supplier in relation to Goods and Services they have supplied to you or the Cardholder as our agent, you cannot take the amount of your claim from any money you owe us or claim it back from us.

6. PRICING

Depending on your business needs and eligibility, we may price your fuel and electric charging in ways such as, but not limited to, the following: retail pump price, national average price, weekly MID CIF price (fuel base cost including cost, insurance and freight into the receiving country), electric charging at either retail or national price.  Both weekly national average and MID CIF prices are available on our website or will be notified to you.

8. CREDIT AND RISK

We may terminate the Agreement or suspend your Cards in the event that you exceed any credit limit that we have set for your account.  We may charge you for exceeding any credit line that we have notified you of. If we suspend your account for any reason and we subsequently agree to reactivate your account, we may charge you. We may also charge you if you fail to comply with the terms of the Agreement or if non-standard payment terms or payment methods are operated for your account. We, or a third party, may make, or ask our agents to make, regular credit checks on you. This will involve giving information about you to licensed credit reference agencies. We will undertake periodic risk assessments of you using an industry recognised risk rating management tool and, in the event that you are neither a sole trader nor a partnership of 3 persons or less,  if, following such credit risk assessment, your credit risk rating hits a specified risk rating level or if for any other reason we reasonably suspect you may pose a credit risk (including in the event of late payment where you have failed to pay an invoice at least two times over a continuous period of six calendar months) to us we shall apply a risk based fee to your purchases for the purposes of mitigating the risk. You agree we may apply such charge immediately and without prior notice to you, although if we apply a risk based fee in this way we will notify you of our decision to apply the risk based fee, together with any additional details of the charge, as soon as reasonably practicable following the decision. You agree that we may apply the charge from the point in time we receive the report indicating your risk rating has hit the specified risk rating level or when we otherwise decide (acting reasonably) to apply the charge. The rate of the risk-based fee applicable will be determined by us but will not exceed the maximum risk based fee set out in the Standard Charges (which may vary). We shall continue to apply a risk-based fee until your risk rating has returned to below the specified risk rating level for a continuous period of six calendar months. Our decision around the risk based fee is final and there shall be no back-dating or reimbursement of risk based fees applied by us to you. Please note you may pay a security deposit in lieu of us applying a risked based fee.

In certain circumstances, for your convenience, we may (but are not obligated to) allow you to place a credit or debit card on file with us to use for automatic payment of any and all balances on your account, including balances created at or around the time that a Cardholder presents the Card to the Supplier to buy Goods and Services. If following a credit risk assessment, we determine (at our sole discretion) your credit risk rating is suitable, we shall be entitled to remove your right to place a credit or debit card on file with us and transfer you to our standard billing process outlined in clause 4. This will include a requirement for you to set up a direct debit for the payment of invoices in accordance with clause 4 when we transfer you to our standard billing process.

You hereby authorise us (and will promptly provide us documentation evidencing your authorisation upon our request) to: (a) charge or debit such credit or debit card automatically immediately in £GBP (or on the date any amount otherwise becomes due to us), based on your use of our products and services and related purchases and any other charges due as per the Standard Charges; (b) to obtain credit authorisations from the issuer of your credit or debit card; and (c) to obtain credit reports about you and/or the beneficial owners of your business from time to time.  We may set limits on the amount of goods and services you can purchase using the Cards, depending on the credit limit on your credit card, or any other factors in our assessment of credit risk.  It is your responsibility to ensure that your credit or debit card information on file with us is always up to date.  If such credit or debit card is declined for any reason, your account must be paid by you by other means by the due date stated on your invoice, and we may charge you an administrative handling charge of in connection with such decline. 

“Chargeback” is a mechanism for your credit or debit card issuer (at their discretion) to reclaim money from a service provider’s bank. This can allow your card issuer to provide you with a refund in a number of circumstances, including: (a) if you do not get the product you paid for; (b) if you are charged the wrong amount, or charged twice by mistake; or (c) if the payment was made fraudulently.

You agree to contact us prior to raising a request for a Chargeback or any dispute with your bank or card issuer in relation to any transaction with us, and to provide us with any information reasonably requested by us in order for us to research the transaction associated with the proposed Chargeback.

We recognise that Chargebacks can happen for a variety of reasons. However, if you make a card payment through us, and later dispute a legitimate charge by raising a Chargeback without merit or legitimate reason (as determined at our sole discretion), whether fraudulently or otherwise, then we may provide the bank compelling evidence to refute your invalid Chargeback request, and reserve the right to terminate the Agreement or suspend your Cards. The following shall be due and payable by you within 7 days for each instance of a Chargeback made without merit or legitimate reason: (a) the charges due and payable by you for the Goods and Services used in the period covered by the Chargeback; (b) such Chargeback costs as are levied upon us by your bank or card issuer; (c) Chargeback fee of £50; and (d) our reasonable costs and losses incurred in recovering the above-mentioned fees including debt recovery costs, legal fees and debt collection costs.

In addition to the Chargeback fee outlined in the preceding paragraph, we may also charge you an administration fee for any Chargebacks.  If you effect a Chargeback on a valid charge from us, you will owe us the full amount of such charge and it must be paid promptly by other means, and shall accrue interest from the original date due, at a monthly interest rate noted on the Standard Charges published on our Website.

You agree to indemnify and hold us harmless against any and all claims, losses, costs, penalties, expenses and liabilities which we may suffer or incur which in any way, directly or indirectly, arise from or relate to any claim whether in contract, delict or tort (including negligence or breach of statutory duty) in respect of any use of a Card.

19. NON STANDARD CARDS

If you request us to do so, we may, at our absolute discretion agree to supply Non Standard Cards to you. To ensure a high level of security, standard Cards benefit from “real time” authorisation controls used to validate transactions at the point of sale.  Standard Cards also benefit from the security of Chip and PIN technology where a valid PIN must be entered at the point of sale.

You undertake to take full responsibility for the use and control of Non Standard Cards.  It is and at all times remains exclusively your responsibility to ensure that Non Standard Cards (including the Card numbers associated with such Cards) are only used by Cardholders authorised by you and subject to any limitations placed by you upon such Cardholders. Non Standard Cards cannot be used at outside payment terminals. After you report a Non Standard Card as lost or stolen, we will advise our network of Suppliers of Non Standard Cards which you report to us as lost, stolen or being used in a fraudulent manner, in the usual way.  We will notify you as soon as we are aware that any Non Standard Card that you have notified to us as lost or stolen, has been used. However, because Non Standard Cards are less easy to control and monitor, you will be liable in full for all purchases made with any Non Standard Card until that Non Standard Card has expired or has been returned to us irrespective of whether the Card has been reported lost or stolen or whether or not our relationship with you is terminated. You agree to indemnify and hold us harmless against any and all claims, losses, costs, penalties, expenses, damages and liabilities which we may suffer or incur which in any way, directly or indirectly, arise from or relate to any transactions using Non Standard Cards (and any associated Card numbers) issues to you however occurring (including fraudulent transactions on cloned and/or skimmed Cards). If we have issued Non Standard Cards to you, it is particularly important that you promptly review all invoices that we provide to you. Without prejudice to any other term of your Agreement with us, you must notify us within 3 working days of receipt of your invoice of any transactions where you suspect or reasonably ought to have suspected that any Non Standard Card has been compromised and/or used fraudulently, for example, where a Non Standard Card has been skimmed, cloned or otherwise copied whilst the genuine Non Standard Card is still in use.  Although you will remain liable for all transactions until Non Standard Cards have expired or been returned to us, as soon as you notify us that a Non Standard Card is lost, stolen or being used in a fraudulent way we will attempt to prevent further use of such Non Standard Cards (and/or any associated Card numbers) and use our reasonable endeavours to limit your financial exposure and risk.  Non PIN Cards will be charged at the same rate as the standard Cards on your account(s) and will expire after a period of 24 months when replacement Non PIN Cards will be issued to you.
