4. Operation of the Account
4.1 Purchase of Electronic Money
Electronic Money can be purchased by Card (or any other means accepted by the Issuer), in one or more installments.
To carry out such a transaction, the User will identify him/herself on the Website by using their User name (valid email address) and password, or by connecting through their Facebook account.
The money transfer order is entered on a dedicated payment page. For any payment, the User may be asked to enter a single-use code, sent to his/her mobile phone, to the Card issuer. Where applicable, it is the responsibility of the Issuer to refuse any payment at his/her own discretion and without giving rise to any right to compensation. The fund transfer transaction is carried out by the Card issuer. Any dispute concerning such transfer must be notified to the said Card issuer. The Issuer is not entitled to cancel such a transfer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the User may receive a Reimbursement of Electronic Money in accordance with article 4.4.
The registration of Electronic Money in the User’s name is subject to the actual receipt of funds collected less the costs agreed in the Financial Conditions.
In the event that the transfer of funds is cancelled by the Card issuer following a dispute, for whatever reason, the Issuer may, upon receipt of the information, suspend or cancel any payment Transaction, close the Account concerned, at any time debit the Account for the amount of Electronic Money corresponding to the funds of the cancelled transfer and recover the amount due from the User by any means.
4.2 Functioning of the Account
The Electronic Money is stored for an unspecified duration on the User’s Account by the Issuer under the agreed Financial Conditions.
The Account is credited by the purchase of Electronic Money in exchange for the receipt of funds ordered by the User directly from the Issuer by Card (or any other means accepted by the Issuer) less the corresponding costs as provided in the Financial Conditions. Upon the User’s Order, the Account is debited of Electronic Money to the amount of the payment Transaction or Reimbursement carried out and the related costs as provided in the Financial Conditions. The Issuer is entitled, at any time, to debit the Electronic Money Account by the amount corresponding to the charges due and payable as provided in the Financial Conditions.
The amount of Electronic Money available on the Account is automatically adjusted based on the charges due and payable by the Account User, Orders transmitted to the Issuer (or in the process of being transmitted), funds received by the Issuer in exchange for the purchase of Electronic Money on the Account and any cancellation of one of the aforementioned transactions hereunder.
4.3 The use of Electronic Money to carry out a payment Transaction
Before transmitting an Order, the User must be sure to have a sufficient amount of Electronic Money available to cover the payment Transaction amount and the related costs as agreed in the Financial Conditions.
Where appropriate, the User must acquire a sufficient amount of Electronic Money in accordance with article 4.1 before an Order can be legitimately transmitted to the Issuer for execution. The Electronic Money may be held by the User, provided that the corresponding funds are actually provided. The Electronic Money may in no way be issued as credit. As such, if the amount of available Electronic Money at the date of execution of the Order by the Issuer is lower than the payment Transaction amount (fees included), the Order is automatically refused by the Issuer. The information about this refusal is made available to the User on the Website. This refusal may give rise to additional fees in accordance with the Financial Conditions.
The transmission terms of an Order by the User are as follows:
When carrying out a Payment Transaction, the User logs on to the website by entering his/her Login and password or by connecting through his/her Facebook account. The User completes the relevant form on the payment Page and, where appropriate, provides the supporting documents requested by the Issuer. The form should include the following components: the payment Transaction amount, the currency, which may only be the currency of the Electronic Money, the details required to identify the Beneficiary, the date of execution of the Order and any other required information. The payment Order becomes irrevocable when the User clicks on the validation tab on the form. The User then receives a (‘Date of Receipt’) confirmation email.
In certain cases, the User may fill in a single form containing a money transfer order as provided in article 4.1 and an Order allowing the implementation of a payment Transaction in compliance with the previous paragraph.
Execution of the Order
The Payment Transaction amount is charged against the available Electronic Money registered on the Account to be credited to the Beneficiary, following instructions from the User. As such, the Beneficiary may open an Account in accordance with article 3.2 in order to receive Electronic Money if he/she is not already a User. Where appropriate, the funds corresponding to the Electronic Money used can be directly transferred to a bank or payment account in the name of the Beneficiary upon the Issuer’s receipt of the account details. For this purpose, the Beneficiary must provide the IBAN number and SWIFT code of his/her bank or payment account as well as his/her address. This account must be opened by a banking or payment institution in a European Union Member State or in a State party to the agreement on the European Economic Area.
It is agreed between the Parties that the Payment Transaction will be executed, at the latest, two (2) Business Days following the date of receipt if the Beneficiary has an Account. Where appropriate, the Date of Receipt will be deferred to the opening of the Account or to the date the Issuer receives the bank or payment account details of the Beneficiary to whom the funds are due.
If the Date of receipt is not a Business Day, it will be considered to be the following Business Day for any Order issued after 12pm.
4.4 Transmission and execution of a Reimbursement Order
When he/she wishes to transmit a Reimbursement Order, the User identifies him/herself on the Website by indicating his/her Login and password or by connecting through his/her Facebook account. The User completes the relevant form on the payment Page and, where appropriate, provides the supporting documents requested by the Issuer. The form must contain the following components: the Reimbursement amount, the currency, which may only be the currency of the Electronic Money, the date of execution of the Order and any other required information. The payment Order becomes irrevocable when the User clicks on the validation tab on the form. The User then receives a confirmation email (‘Date of Receipt’).
Alternatively, where applicable, the Reimbursement will occur by crediting the Card used by the User to purchase the Electronic Money. Where applicable*, it will be carried out by money transfer to the bank or payment account of the Beneficiary, whose contact details will be notified to the Issuer (‘Date of notification’). It is agreed between the Parties that the Reimbursement will be carried out, at the latest, two (2) Business Days following the Date of Receipt or of notification as appropriate.
If the Date of Receipt is not a Business Day, it will be considered to be the following Business Day for any Order issued after 12pm.
4.5 Withdrawal of an Order
An order may not be withdrawn by the User after the date on which it is deemed irrevocable as indicated above.
4.6 Distributor’s Authority
All Orders, instructions and notifications given by the User to the Issuer under Article 4 may be given by the Distributor on the User’s behalf. The Issuer accordingly agrees to accept and implement all such Orders, instructions and notifications given by the Distributor as if they were given by the User itself.
5. Login objection, challenge of a Transaction and Reporting
5.1 Login objection
The User must inform the Distributor of the loss or theft of his/her Login, or misuse or unauthorised use of his/her Login or data as soon as he/she becomes aware of this fact in order to request that the Login be blocked. Such a declaration should be made by email to email@example.com
The Issuer, through the Distributor, will immediately execute the objection request for the Login concerned. The event will be recorded and time stamped. A time stamped objection number will be communicated to the User. A written confirmation of this execution of the objection request will be sent from the Distributor to the User concerned by email. The Issuer is responsible for the file at an administrative level and retains all the data for 18 (eighteen) months. Upon written request by the User and before expiration of such a deadline, the Issuer will communicate a copy of this objection.
Any objection request shall be confirmed without delay by the User concerned, via a letter signed by the latter, handed over or sent by registered mail or email to the Issuer at the postal address mentioned at the beginning of this document or at the address indicated in the Special Conditions.
The Issuer and Distributor shall not be held liable for the consequences of any objection made by fax or email by a person who is not the User.
An objection request is deemed to be made at the date and hour of its actual receipt by the Distributor. In case of theft or fraudulent use of the Login, the Issuer is entitled to request, through the Distributor, a receipt or a copy of the complaint from the User who undertakes to respond as soon as possible.
5.2 Challenge of a Transaction
For any claim concerning payment Transactions or Reimbursements executed hereunder by the Issuer, the User is advised to contact GoGetFunding: firstname.lastname@example.org
If an Order is executed by the Issuer containing errors committed by the latter, the Order will be cancelled and the Account will be restored to its former state before the receipt of the payment order. The Order is then resubmitted correctly.
A User who wishes to challenge a transaction not authorised by him/her shall contact GoGetFunding (email@example.com) as soon as possible after becoming aware of the anomaly and within 13 months of the date of the account registering the transaction. This time period applies outside the European Economic Area (not including Saint Pierre and Miquelon and Mayotte) or to a User acting for professional purposes. After validation of the legitimacy of the request, the Issuer will cancel the Order and restore the Account with temporary credit to the amount it would contain if the challenged transaction had never been executed. After investigation of the validity of the challenge, the Issuer will adjust the Account accordingly and is authorised to reverse any unduly implemented entries.
In the event of a loss or theft of the security measure (Login and password), unauthorised transactions carried out before notification of the challenge are the responsibility of the User, up to a maximum of 150 Euros. However, the Issuer may not be held liable in case of any fault of the User, such as wilful neglect or gross negligence with regard to his/her obligations, late submission of the challenge or bad faith. In the case of loss or theft or misappropriation of the personalised security measure, losses arising from orders submitted before the challenge by the User are borne by the Issuer, except in case of misconduct, as defined above. Transactions carried out after the challenge are borne by the Issuer except for cases of fraud.
The User may challenge an authorised transaction whose exact amount is undefined or those whose final amount is not that which he/she could have reasonably expected taking into account his/her profile, previous expenditures and the Framework Contract conditions. This request must be submitted to the Issuer within 8 weeks of the execution of the Order on the Account. The Issuer must reimburse the User within a period of 10 Business Days after receipt of the request, if the latter proves justified, taking into account the regulations, and whether the request consists of all the components necessary for examination by the Issuer. The Issuer reserves the right to refuse such a reimbursement, which will be explained and notified to the User. The latter will provide the necessary information in order to determine the circumstances of the payment Transaction. The fees indicated in the Special Conditions may be collected in the case of a non-justified challenge of a Transaction.
The User may access, at any time, on their personal dashboard on GoGetFunding, the indicative amount of Electronic Money available on his/her Account.
The User has, on his/her personal dashboard on GoGetFunding, a statement of payment Transactions carried out on the Account. The User is advised to pay careful attention to the list of these Transactions.
The Issuer shall make available to the User upon written request a monthly statement of the Account, covering the 13 previous months.
6. Amendment of the Contract
The Issuer reserves the right, at any time, to amend the General Conditions of Use of Electronic Money. Such amendments are made available by the Distributor to all Users on the Website.
Any User may refuse the amendments proposed and must notify the Distributor’s customer service of its refusal by email with an acknowledgement of receipt two months before the date the proposed amendments come into force (date as per postmark). The two months period starts from the date on which the amendments are made available to the Users on GoGetFunding.
In the event of failure to notify his/her refusal before the end of the two months period come into force, the User is deemed to have accepted the proposed amendments.
The relationship between the Parties after the date the amendments come into force shall be governed by the new version of the General Conditions of Use.
It is therefore important that the User reads his/her emails and regularly reads the General Conditions of Use of Electronic Money available on the Website at any time.
In case of refusal by the User of the amendments, without fees, this refusal may give rise to the cancellation of the General Conditions of Use of the Electronic Money, without fees,and to the Reimbursement of Electronic Money belonging to him/her.
The Issuer undertakes to provide its services in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations (including any applicable professional regulations). In particular, the Issuer will make every effort to ensure the security and confidentiality of the User’s data, in compliance with current regulations in force.
The Issuer reserves the right to temporarily suspend access to the Account on line for technical, security or maintenance reasons, without liability for any compensation. The Issuer will limit this type of interruption to a necessary minimum.
The Issuer cannot, however, be held liable to the User for possible errors, omissions, interruptions or delays produced by the Website resulting in an unauthorised access to the latter. Nor can the Issuer be held liable for thefts, destruction or unauthorised communications of data arising from unauthorised access to the Website. In addition, the Issuer will remain uninvolved in the existing legal relationship between the User and the Beneficiary of the payment Transaction. The Issuer cannot be held liable for faults, wilful default or negligence of the User or Beneficiary towards each other.
The Distributor is solely responsible for the security and confidentiality of the data exchanged within the framework of the use of the Website, in accordance with the General Conditions of the Website; the Issuer is responsible for the security and confidentiality of the data that he/she exchanges with the User within the context of these General Conditions in respect of the creation and management of the Account, as well as the payment Transactions associated with the Account.
8. Limitation of Issuer liability
The Issuer will not intervene in any way in the legal and commercial relationships and any litigation arising between the Beneficiary and the User. The Issuer has no control over the compliance, security, legality, characteristics and appropriateness of the products subject to a payment Transaction. In this respect, it is up to the User to obtain all useful information before proceeding to the purchase of a product or service, the collection of funds or any other transaction, in full knowledge of all the considerations involved. Any transaction carried out by the User gives rise to a contract directly formed between him/her and the Beneficiary(s) with whom the Issuer has no contact. The latter cannot, under any circumstances, be held liable for the non-performance or poor execution of obligations that may result, nor possible damages caused to the User in this respect.
Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in the present Contract, the responsibility of the Issuer with regard to a User is limited to the payment of direct damages as provided by the regulations.
9. User Commitments
The User guarantees that no part of their profile on GoGetFunding.com will harm the rights of third parties or is contrary to the law, to public order or to accepted principles of morality.
He/she undertakes not to:
– Execute the Contract in an illegal manner or in conditions that are likely to damage, deactivate, overload or impair the Website;
– Assume the identity of another person or entity, falsify or conceal his/her identity or age, or create any false identity;
– Disseminate personal data or information concerning a third party, such as postal addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses, bank card numbers etc.
In the event of User default, the Issuer reserves the right to take any appropriate measures in order to stop the relevant actions. He/she will also be entitled to suspend and/or block access to the Account.
10. Duration and Termination
The General Conditions of Use are concluded for an unlimited period. They are applicable from the moment of receipt by the User of the email confirming his/her registration.
The User can terminate the Framework Contract, at any time, and subject to compliance with a notice period of 30 (thirty) calendar days. The Issuer can terminate the Framework Contract, at any time, subject to compliance with a notice period of 2 months.
Such termination shall also constitute the termination of the entire Framework Contract and consequently the closure of the Account.
In order to do this, each Party shall transmit his/her notice of termination to the other Party by email with an acknowledgement of receipt.
The User shall indicate his/her bank or payment account details in the termination letter enabling the Issuer to reimburse him/her with the available Electronic Money. In the absence of such information, the Issuer shall follow the Reimbursement instructions entailing the reimbursement by credit to the Card used for the purchase of Electronic Money. The Issuer is absolved of any obligation after having confirmed with the User the transfer to the bank account indicated or the credit to the Card of the amount of the Electronic Money.
In the event of gross default, fraud or lack of payment on the part of the User, the Issuer reserves the right, without cause or prior notice, to suspend or terminate these conditions by sending an email accompanied by a registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt.
In the event that a successor to the Issuer is nominated to issue the Electronic Money distributed on the Website, it is the responsibility of the Distributor to obtain the User’s express written consent to this change, and to the amount of Electronic Money available and to indicate the arrangements for the transfer of funds corresponding to the available Electronic Money to the successor Issuer.
It is envisaged that the Framework Contract will be automatically terminated in the event of new circumstances affecting the ability of one Party to commit to these conditions.
11. Right of Withdrawal
The User has a period of 14 (fourteen) calendar days to exercise his/her right to withdraw, without having to either justify any reason or sustain any penalty. This deadline for withdrawal shall be calculated from the day of his/her registration as a User.
The User must notify his/her request of withdrawal within the prescribed deadline to the Distributor’s customer service by email. In respect of the exercise of his/her right of withdrawal by the User, the Framework Contract will be resolved without fees in the conditions and subject to the reservations provided in articles L.121-20-8 and following of the Consumer Code.
In the event that a User has already benefited from the service and is in possession of Electronic Money at the date of the withdrawal, he/she must transmit his/her bank account details to the Distributor in order to allow the Issuer to reimburse the User with Electronic Money appearing as credit on his/her Account.
12. Rules for combatting money laundering and the financing of terrorism
The Issuer is subject to the entire French and Luxembourg legislation regarding the combating of money laundering and the financing of terrorism.
Pursuant to the provisions of French and Luxembourg law relating to the participation of financial institutions in combating money laundering and the financing of terrorism, the Issuer must obtain information from any User, for any transaction or business relationship, of the origin, purpose and destination of a transaction or opening of an Account. In addition, he/she must take all the steps necessary to identify the User and, where appropriate, the beneficial owner of the Account and/or any payment Transactions linked to the latter.
The User recognises that the Issuer can, at any time, stop or delay the use of a Login, access to an account or the implementation of a transaction or a Reimbursement in the absence of sufficient information pertaining to its purpose or nature. He/she is informed that a transaction carried out within the framework of these conditions may be subject to the national financial intelligence unit’s right to disclosure.
The User can, in accordance with the legislation, access all of the information disclosed, provided this right to access does not undermine the purpose of the fight against money laundering and the financing of terrorism, where this data concerns the User.
No prosecutions or civil liability actions can be brought, nor any professional sanction taken against the Issuer, his/her managers or employees who have reported their suspicions in good faith to the national authority.
13. Personal data and professional secrecy
The User’s personal data provided in connection with the opening of the Account, are used by the Issuer for the purposes of managing his/her Account, Payments Transaction and Reimbursements.
The User agrees that his/her contact details and personal information obtained by the Issuer in connection with these conditions may be transmitted to operational providers, with whom the latter is in a contractual relationship, with the sole purpose of executing payment Transactions and services, provided these third party recipients of personal data, are subject to regulations guaranteeing a sufficient level of protection as defined in article 561-7 II b of the Monetary and Financial Code. The list of the third party recipients of the User’s data is available upon request from the Issuer’s compliance manager at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. This information is stored by the latter or by any company authorised to do so, in accordance with legal and regulatory rules.
The User will be informed prior to any transfer of his/her personal data outside the European Union. In such a case, the Issuer undertakes to respect the regulations in force and to put in place any measure necessary in order to guarantee the security and confidentiality of data transferred in such a way.
Certain information collected and held by the Issuer thereunder may give rise to the rights of access and correction as provided by Law No 78-17 of the 6th January 1978, amended in relation to information technology, documents and freedoms. Any User may, at any time, obtain a copy of the information pertaining to him/her upon request addressed to the Issuer’s customer correspondent at the following address: email@example.com.

The Issuer will store the personal information and data for a maximum legal or regulatory period applicable depending on the purpose of each type of data processing.
14. Inactive Accounts
Any Electronic Money unit Account that is inactive for a period of 12 months will receive a notification of inactivity by email from the Issuer followed by a reminder a month later.
If there is no response or use of available Electronic Money within this period, or in the event of the death of the User, the Issuer may close the Account and keep it active for the sole purpose of the Reimbursement of Electronic Money. In the event of death, the Electronic Money can only be reimbursed to the User’s assignee.
The Account will not permit the further use of Electronic Money. In the event that the account is still inactive after 14 months, any funds left in the account will be transferred to GoGetFunding. This can be transferred back to the account holder upon request.
15. Force majeure
The Parties shall not be held liable, or considered to have failed under these conditions in the event of delay or non-performance when their cause is related to a force majeure situation as defined by the case law of the French courts.
16. Independence of contractual provisions
If any of the provisions hereof is held invalid or unenforceable, it shall be deemed unwritten and will not invalidate the other provisions.
If one or more of the provisions hereof lapses or is declared as such under any law or regulation or following a final decision granted by a competent jurisdiction, the other provisions will retain their binding force and scope. The provisions considered null and invalid would then be replaced by provisions closest in scope and meaning to those initially agreed.
17. Protection of funds
The User’s funds are deposited at the end of each Business Day into an account opened with a Bank and are ring fenced by it.
The Framework Contract cannot be subject to complete or partial transfer by the User, whether against payment or free of charge. It is therefore forbidden to transfer to a third party any rights or obligations that the User owns hereunder. In the event of breach of this prohibition, in addition to the immediate termination hereof, the User may be held liable by the Issuer.
The services offered hereunder are charged by the Distributor (GoGetFunding.com) on his/her behalf and on the behalf of the Issuer in accordance with the Financial Conditions.
The Fees may, on the Issuer’s initiative, be settled by means of compensation in available Electronic Money.
20. Protection of collected funds
The collected funds are protected in accordance with article L. 613-30-1 of the Monetary and Financial code, against any claims from other creditors of the Issuer, including in the event of enforcement proceedings or insolvency proceedings against the institution.
21. Agreement of proof
All data held in a permanent, reliable and secure manner in the computer database of the Issuer relating, in particular, to the payment orders and confirmations received by the User, notices sent, access, withdrawal and Reimbursement will prevail between the parties until proven otherwise.
22. Complaints and arbitration
The User is invited to send any complaint to the customer services: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any complaint other than as provided in article 5.2 concerning the conclusion, execution or termination of the Framework Contract and services for the issue and management of Electronic Money shall be notified by registered letter with receipt of acknowledgement to the following address: Leetchi Corp SA, 14 rue Aldringen, 1118 Luxembourg.
If the User believes that the response provided is unsatisfactory, or in the absence of a response within one month after sending the letter, he/she may refer to the Financial Sector Supervisory Commission by post at 110 route d’Arlon L-1150 Luxembourg or by email: email@example.com.
23. Applicable law and competent jurisdiction
Except in the case of the application of a public policy law (which will apply only within the strict limits of its purpose), it is expressly stipulated that the Framework Contract is subject to French law and that any litigation between the Parties under the latter shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the competent French courts.
