Terms and Conditions
SquareOne App Limited
SquareOne (NZ) Nominee Limited
Reloadable MasterCard Prepaid Card
The SquareOne App is used to register for, use and manage the SquareOne Youth Product. Parents set up a primary ‘account’ (Parent Wallet), being an ‘account’ that accesses value maintained by us on behalf of you as beneficial owner of the funds. Parents then set up ‘sub-accounts’ for Children (Child Wallets) as ‘sub-account’ holders.
The Parent Wallet can be used to load Value to a Child Wallet. Child Wallets include both savings ‘sub-accounts’ (“pockets”) and spending ‘sub-accounts’. Value loaded to the spending sub-account is available for spending via linked Child Payment Devices (up to spending limits set by the Parent and any Limits). Value loaded to the savings sub-account is not available for spending via linked Child Payment Devices. Payment Devices may be used for payment transactions (online or in physical stores).
In the SquareOne App, Parents have a Parent (Administration) login with access to all Child Wallets and access to transaction control settings. Each Child only has login access to their individual Child Wallet (and not to the Parent Wallet or another Child’s Wallet).
Parents do not receive a Payment Device linked to the Parent Wallet. Parents can only apply for a Payment Device for a Child Wallet. Parent Wallet holders are not also allowed to be Child Wallet holders. Payment Devices are sent at time of application for activation in the SquareOne App.
Parents provide the Payment Device to the Child and authorise the Child to use the Payment Device, but the Parent remains financially responsible for the Payment Device and Child Wallet. Wearables are anticipated to become available in 2022 and until launch are not included as Payment Devices in these Terms.

The following limits apply across Parent Wallet and any Child Wallets:
Parents maintain financial responsibility for the Facility and Payment Device use. For the avoidance of doubt, this includes each Wallet and each Payment Device and Digital Wallet and Electronic Devices and related transactions and every Fee. You are liable for each transaction and Transfer using the Facility or Payment Devices, whether or not the Facility or Payment Device is in your possession (unless and to the extent these Terms expressly release you from such liability).
Without reducing your Parent responsibilities, when you provide a Child with access to a Facility or to a Payment Device:
In line with Parents remaining financially responsible for Children, the Parent retains the beneficial interest in Value loaded to Child Wallets until spent (that is, the Child Wallet Available Balances), subject to these Terms and except to the extent expressly contemplated in these Terms.
Pursuant to the Trustee terms of trust set out in these Terms, you can at any time reclaim funds that you have loaded in order to ‘cash out’ any Available Balance in your Parent Wallet (Cash Out Request). Cash Out Requests shall be submitted via the SquareOne App. Cash Out Requests may only be made in respect of a Parent Wallet Available Balance belonging to the Parent Wallet holder, or in respect of a Child Wallet by a Child where expressly contemplated by these Terms. On our receipt of a valid Cash Out Request, we will instruct the Trustee to repay the Available Balance to you no later than two (2) business days after your Cash Out Request: subject to you providing us with clear and correct banking details in the form we require; subject to these Terms; subject to any Law; and subject to us having properly and completely verified and authenticated your identity. Cash Out Requests are subject to the Fees and Limits.
Cancellation of the Parent’s Facility shall result in a deemed Cash Out Request and payment of the Available Balance as contemplated above, subject to these Terms.
Child Wallet Value is accessible via the Payment Devices and via Transfers or Digital Wallets (as applicable and if enabled).
Each Parent must be aged 20 years or above and you warrant and represent that you are aged 20 years or over and remain financially responsible for each Payment Device.
You represent and warrant that no Child Wallet has been, or will be, set up in the Parent’s name or for primary use by the Parent.
The Facility is issued and distributed by us.
We are a MasterCard card scheme prepaid card issuer and principal and are responsible for the settlement of transactions using a Facility or Payment Devices, together with MasterCard. Each Facility and Payment Device relies on the MasterCard card scheme and MasterCard technology (including the processing services and processing platform).
You acknowledge and agree that certain product and service delivery (including, payment transactions, direct debits, processing services and processing platforms (including transaction management, authorisation, clearing, settlement, generation and processing), physical Payment Device production and distribution, identity check and credit check services, load transaction, currency conversion services, API provision and maintenance, alerts via SMS or email) rely on Providers that are independent of us and over which we may have no or limited control. Your use of SquareOne and SquareOne’s ability to deliver the product and service to you, may be subject to your compliance with Provider separate terms and conditions or to which we or you are bound, our or your ability to continue to meet Provider requirements, and to the continued and uninterrupted delivery by Providers. You acknowledge and agree that Providers may not represent or warrant that the any system, process or activity administered, operated, controlled or provided by or on behalf of them (collectively, for purposes of this section, the “Systems”) is free of defect and/or mistake and that Providers may provide the Systems on an “as-is” basis.
Funds loaded (or reloaded) to a Wallet are held on bare trust for you by the Trustee on the terms set out below in these Terms.
To obtain the facility, you will need to download and install the SquareOne App and apply and order your Payment Device/s via the SquareOne App.
Upon receipt of a valid application, we shall provide you with the Facilities and Payment Devices, subject to these Terms and to Law. Where the particular Payment Device that you choose is out of stock or unavailable for any reason we may have to cancel your order. We are not liable for any Payment Device loss or damage caused during transit, transportation or delivery and we do not accept returns or offer refunds (except to the extent required by Law). Where a return or refund is offered or accepted by us, you shall pay any return shipping costs to the address we provide you with (and even if the item had free shipping to you in the first place).
Once you receive your Payment Device/s, you will need to complete the activation process in the SquareOne App to activate the Facility. You will not be able to use the Facility until you have completed the activation process in the SquareOne App. Activation is required for each Child Wallet and Payment Device.
Each Wallet is a reloadable MasterCard prepaid payment facility. Value must be loaded to the Facility before the Facility can be used. You can load and reload Value to the Facility in accordance with these Terms.
Neither we nor the Trustee are a bank or a non-bank deposit taker. The Facility is not a bank account or credit facility. The Facility does not involve an account held at a financial institution. The Payment Devices are not linked to a bank account or financial institution account. The Facility is not a credit card or charge card facility and the Value in a Wallet is not a bank deposit or investment. You will not earn interest on Value loaded or any other similar return. This Payment Device is not one which is a line of credit or is secured by an amount held on deposit and does not require you to establish a deposit account.
You will not earn interest on any Facility balances. Any interest earned on funds held will not be paid to you.
If the internet or any electronic network enabling the use of the Facility or Payment Device is unavailable, you may not be able to undertake transactions, access information, or use the Facility or Payment Device.
Use and access to the SquareOne App is at all times subject to these Terms. We grant you a revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited license to download, install and use the SquareOne App strictly in accordance with these Terms.
You agree not to, and you will not permit others to:
A, license, sell, rent, lease, assign, distribute, transmit, host, outsource, disclose or otherwise commercially exploit the SquareOne App or make the platform available to any third party; or
B, modify, make derivative works of, disassemble, decrypt, reverse compile or reverse engineer or corrupt (by any means) any part of the SquareOne App; or

Updates may modify or delete certain features and/or functionalities of the app. You agree that we have no obligation to:
(i) provide any Updates, or
(ii) continue to provide or enable any particular features and/or functionalities of the SquareOne App to you. You further agree that all Updates will be deemed to constitute an integral part of the SquareOne App and will be subject to these Terms.

B, You acknowledge and agree that we shall not be responsible for any Third-Party Services, including their content, accuracy, opinions expressed, completeness, timeliness, validity, copyright compliance, legality, decency, quality or any other aspect thereof. We do not assume and shall not have any liability or responsibility to you or any other person or entity for any Third-Party Services and such are not investigated, monitored or checked for accuracy or completeness by us.
C, Third-Party Services and links thereto are provided solely as a convenience to you and you access and use them entirely at your own risk and subject to such third parties' terms and conditions.
Certain transactions using your Payment Device will require you to enter your Passcode or PIN.
Your prepaid card Payment Device can be used at all Merchants and generally anywhere MasterCard cards are accepted via electronic processing. Electronic processing includes processing other than by manual or paper processing (including use of an imprinting ‘zip zap’ machine or mail order or other handwritten method).
A Wearable cannot be used for all transactions where a physical MasterCard debit card can be used, for example, at payment terminals which do not have Contactless Transaction functionality, at payment terminals which need a card magnetic strip to make the payment, or at certain foreign country Contactless Transaction terminals that may operate on technical standards different to those used widely in New Zealand. Although a retailer or merchant may generally accept Digital Wallets, or MasterCard PayPass or MasterCard prepaid facilities, the retailer or merchant is not obligated to accept the Facility or Payment Device for payment or for the transaction.
Certain Payment Devices can be used at payment terminals despite the terminal not supporting Contactless Transactions or MasterCard PayPass. Point of sale terminals are not owned or operated by us or MasterCard and neither us nor MasterCard are responsible for ensuring that retailers, merchants or Merchants will accept the Payment Device (for any reason) or process the transaction (properly or otherwise).
Before you authorise a transaction, you shall check that the correct amount is displayed on the terminal (if applicable). If the Merchant payment terminal is offline or cannot connect with the SquareOne App or with MasterCard to authorise the transaction, you will not be able to use the Facility or Payment Device to make a payment. Neither the Facility nor the Payment Device shall be used for manual, paper or offline transactions. You may not be able to use the Facility or Payment Device to make pre-authorisation transactions or for regular or recurring payments.
You acknowledge that certain retailer or merchant charging practices will affect your use of the Facility, including:
A, When using the Facility with some Merchants (including hotels, taxis, rental cars, restaurants, cruise ships) or for mail order or online purchases requiring delivery, Facility “tolerance limits” may apply or the Merchant may not accept the Payment Device as a means of pre-authorising expenditure. In such circumstances, the Merchant may obtain an authorisation or approval on the Facility for an amount equal to 120% or more of the total bill (or anticipated bill) to cover the anticipated bill and any additional potential items, including tips and incidentals, or to ensure that adequate funds are available to cover a final purchase. The entire amount of the authorisation or approval will be debited and will not form part of the Available Balance until the authorisation or approval clears, although only the amount actually spent or authorised will be finally reflected in the Available Balance after the authorisation or approval clears. Including:
B, When a Payment Device is used to purchase fuel at an automated fuel pump, the Available Balance may need to be at least $125 (or more overseas and in its foreign currency equivalent).
C, When a Payment Device is used to purchase a telephone call at a phone booth or similar, the Available Balance may need to be at least $20 (or more overseas and in its foreign currency equivalent).
The SquareOne App includes settings configurable by Parents. We automatically restrict the use of Payment Devices at 18 years and over (R18) Merchants with a view to preventing purchases of alcohol, tobacco, pornographic material or services, or to conduct gambling transactions. The Parent Wallet selects whether the Facility or Payment Device can be used for online purchases, at overseas Merchants, for cash withdrawals, or Transfers. You agree to notify each Child of any restrictions that apply to the use of the Payment Device and agree that in no circumstances will we be liable to you because a transaction on the Payment Device was conducted and processed, notwithstanding that a restriction was placed on the Facility or Payment Device by you for a particular type of transaction or that should have applied.
The Facility is loaded, maintained and made available in New Zealand Dollars (NZD) only. The Facility however may be used anywhere accepted for electronic processing by Merchants, both in New Zealand and outside of New Zealand.
By Law, we or a Related Person may be required to verify your identity before providing certain products or services to you. In all cases, you must satisfactorily meet our customer identification process and policies. If we are not able to verify your identity to our satisfaction (at our sole discretion), we may refuse to accept your application and/or provide, or continue to provide, products or services to you. You will be able to complete the required identification procedures by following the instructions in the SquareOne App.
You may be asked to confirm personal information, such as your full name, email address, residential address and date of birth. You may also be asked to supply information to confirm your identity such as your driver’s licence or passport details. We may send your personal information to our identity check service provider who may verify your identity on our behalf.
You agree to supply any reasonably specified identification documentation within a reasonable period of time if requested by us. Failure to provide any reasonably requested identification documentation may result in us being required to (or electing, at our sole discretion, to) withhold or Lock or cancel the Facility and/or Suspend the Payment Device until the requested documentation has been provided.
You acknowledge and agree that:
There may be times when MasterCard applies its extra layer of security – known as MasterCard SecureCode - to help stop your Payment Device being used online without your permission and requiring identity questions to be answered in order to be able to proceed with the transaction.
You acknowledge that your use of a Payment Device is subject to any requirements or terms imposed by MasterCard. If we or MasterCard cannot authenticate you as the Facility holder or Payment Device holder you may not be able to access, use or cancel the Facility until your identity has been authenticated.
Purchases at Merchants using the Facility are honoured for electronic transactions if a sufficient Available Balance exists to cover the amount of the transaction. You agree not to make or attempt to make transactions that exceed the Available Balance.
If the Available Balance is insufficient to cover the costs of a transaction (including Fees), the Payment Device may be declined, or the retailer or merchant may allow you to pay the deficit by some other means (but some Merchants may not allow you to combine multiple payment types (such as cash, check or another payment card) to complete the transaction). If you make or attempt to make any transactions that exceed the Available Balance, you will be liable for any negative balance or overdrawn amount that may arise, along with any Losses or Expenses we incur, including in recovering or attempting to recover the amount you owe us.
Without limitation, you authorise us to recover any overdrawn amount from you, and in relation to overdrawn amounts on the Payment Device or Wallet, and we may recover this amount by debiting (deducting) the amount from any Value or positive balance on any Wallet or Payment Device.
The Facility does not expire (subject to cancellation or termination), however the Payment Device used to access the Facility is subject to expiry. Prior to expiry of your Payment Device, providing the card you have nominated to fund the Facility, either a debit or credit card, has sufficient funds, you will be sent a replacement Payment Device (or devices if you have multiple Payment Devices) to continue to use the Facility. If applicable, you will be charged the Fee for your replacement Payment Device or Devices.
Once you receive your replacement Payment Device/s, you will need to activate the new Payment Device/s via the SquareOne App (Parent Wallet section). At that time, Available Balances in the Child Wallet will be accessible from your replacement Payment Device/s.
For the avoidance of doubt, the expiry of the Payment Device does not result in the expiry or termination of these Terms, the Facility or any agreement that relates to your use of the Facility or the SquareOne App or otherwise.
The materials, any comments or information provided by us are for educational purposes only and nothing conveyed or provided should be considered financial advice (or legal, accounting or tax advice) or a recommendation for a product or course of action or otherwise. Any testimonial provided on this platform is simply an opinion of the third party person providing it and it shall create no guarantee or warranty and is not to be relied upon to predict anything relevant to your specific situation.
You are responsible for whatever you may do with the information you obtain from us. Neither we nor any Related Person is a licensed financial advice provider or and neither we nor any Related Person gives any financial advice in connection with SquareOne, a Facility or Payment Device.
You agree not to rely on any information or advice provided by us or any Related Person as financial advice. Neither SquareOne nor a Facility or a Payment Device is a financial advice product. We and our Related Persons do provide information (for example, the cost and terms of SquareOne) but without providing (other than the procedure for doing so) any recommendation or opinion in respect of acquiring or disposing of a Facility or Payment.
Any recommendation or opinion relating to a Facility or Payment Device relates solely to these types of products generally and as a class of financial products. We and our Related Persons may pass on the financial advice of another person without holding out that advice as our own advice. We and our Related Persons may also recommend that a person consult a financial adviser.
Neither we nor any Related Person, directly or indirectly, hold out that we are a non-bank deposit taker, licensed or otherwise. We, however, maintain registration on the Financial Service Providers Register (NZ).
3.1 Payment Devices can be used for online purchases (other than where the Parent Wallet has restricted certain use). Child Wallets can also be used for certain Transfers, if enabled and subject to these Terms and prevailing SquareOne App functionality.
4.1 Value can be loaded to your Facility in accordance with these Terms and via the SquareOne App and subject to the Limits.
4.2 The Facility can only accept, or be loaded with, funds via electronic means (debit or credit card issued by others or by direct debit from a New Zealand financial institution and as processed by a Direct Debit Service Provider) and does not accept loads or fund transfers using other means (including cash, cheque or money order). You cannot load Value to your Facility at a physical branch or third-party merchant. You or the payment processor may need to first convert any currency or other value not recognised by MasterCard at such time (including cryptocurrency), to a currency recognized by the MasterCard before loading funds.
4.3 Loads made using a MasterCard debit card or Visa debit card held in your name will generally be available in near real time in the Parent Wallet. Funds loaded using bank transfer or other approved methods (where available) may take one (1) Business Day for funds to be made available for use.
4.4 Loading of funds via debit or credit card to the Facility involves payment processing by a Provider (as at the date of these Terms being Windcave Payment Services (formally DPS and Payment Express)). Queries and disputes related to the load process and the financial instrument you used to load funds should be directed in the first instance to your bank, or other debit or credit card provider or financial institution where you are wanting to load funds from.
Where you are unable to resolve things satisfactorily with your debit or credit card provider, you may contact the Support Centre. None of us, a Related Person or the Trustee may become responsible for your funds until they reach and appear in the Parent Wallet.
4.5 Certain load methods described in these Terms may not be available at all times and we may in the future make additional load methods available. If we do, we will let you know about any specific terms and conditions applicable to that load method and you can check what methods are available to you by referring to the SquareOne App or Website.
4.6 Depending on the load method you use, a minimum load value Limit applies. Any attempt to load value below the Limit may be rejected.
4.7 We and a Related Person may, with or without notice, and without incurring any liability to you, block, suspend or decline a load transaction in order to comply with any Laws (including in any country and including to manage any anti-money laundering or counter-terrorism financing risks).
4.8 When you load a Facility (and notwithstanding that the load may have resulted in the Value appearing in your Facility), should MasterCard or any Provider notify us of a suspected, invalid, fraudulent, unauthorised, or incomplete load, you agree, and hereby authorise us and our Related Persons to immediately return the funds, or remaining funds thereof.
5.1 The Parent Wallet can be used to load or Transfer Value into a Child Wallet (both into savings ‘sub-account’ (‘pockets’) and/or spending ‘sub-account’, thereby becoming accessible via the Payment Device) where:
A, There is sufficient Value available on the Parent Wallet to cover the load or Transfer amount, together with any applicable fees and charges;

6.1 We or MasterCard may make certain MasterCard benefits and features (including Mastercard SafetyNet (as defined in the MasterCard rules), Tokenisation (as defined in the MasterCard rules), and a transaction alerts service) available to Payment Device holders, either through MasterCard itself or through one of its business partners, from time to time. We may let you know if such features become available and how you may be able to access them. You may be required to accept separate terms and conditions for any additional benefits or features before being able to access them.
7.1 The Available Balance is available for transactions using the Facility and Payment Device (as applicable) in accordance with these Terms until the expiry, revocation or cancellation of the Facility.
7.2 You can use the Facility as much as you like, subject to the Available Balance, Limits and these Terms.
7.3 Where a payment transaction or Transfer is effected, we will debit (deduct) from the relevant Wallet against the Value of that transaction and in accordance with these Terms.
7.4 If a prepaid card Payment Device has been added to a Digital Wallet, a transaction may also be effected by use of that Digital Wallet.
8.1 For the purpose of the Limits set out in these Terms, Limits apply to Parent Wallets as if the Parent Facility also includes the Child Wallet/s, and vice versa.
8.2 Where we make the following feature available to you in the SquareOne App, you can ask us to increase the Limit as it relates to maximum balance at any one time. Before we can agree to your request, we and any Related Person may need to ensure we have sufficiently verified your identity to comply with Law.
You will be able to complete the further required identification procedures by following the instructions in the SquareOne App.
You agree to supply any reasonably specified identification documentation within a reasonable period of time if requested by us. Failure to provide any reasonably requested identification documentation may result in us being required to (or electing, at our sole discretion, to) Lock the Facility and/or Suspend the Payment Device until the requested documentation has been provided.
9.1 You cannot stop payment on any transaction or Transfer after it has been completed. If you have a problem with a purchase made using the Facility, or a dispute with a Merchant, you must deal directly with the Merchant involved. If you cannot first resolve the dispute with the Merchant, you may contact the Support Centre.
9.2 If you are entitled to a refund for any reason relating to a Facility transaction, you agree to accept the refund under the policy of that specific Merchant. Refunds may be in the form of a credit to the Facility, cash refund or in store credit.
10.1 Your use of, and rights associated with, a Facility and Payment Device and all related transactions remain at all times subject to your compliance with the Law.
10.2 Without limitation, we and/or a Related Person may Lock a Facility or Suspend a Payment Device or cancel either immediately without notifying you if we are of the opinion that you have breached one or more of the terms of these Terms or that the Facility has been used or may be used for an unlawful purpose, in breach of Law or any illegal transaction (including the purchase of goods or services deemed illegal by Law) or used in other than good faith. We and/or a Related Person may do the same where you commit, or attempt to commit, a fraud in relation to your Facility, the payment system, our Related Persons or any other person, in which case the Available Balance in your Facility will (to the maximum extent permitted by Law) be immediately forfeited by you and you forfeit and waive all rights as beneficiary to any funds held on trust by the Trustee. In such circumstances, we may also request that you return the Payment Device/s to a location advised by us within 14 days after receiving such request and you agree to do so, if so requested.
10.3 The Facility must not be used for, and authorisation may be declined for transactions relating to, any form of gambling or gambling services, the purchase of money orders, wire transfers, transactions with financial institutions and transactions at pawn shops. We reserve the right to add additional merchant categories at which the Facility may not be used to facilitate transactions without providing notice to you, subject to the requirements of any Law.
11.1 Subject to these Terms, you are responsible for all transactions and Transfers using the Facility and any use of a Payment Device.
12.1 The Facility may not operate as described (and may not be available for use) if (without limitation):
A, Your Electronic Device has insufficient battery power; or
B, The SquareOne App has been deleted from your Electronic Device or disabled; or
C, the Contactless Transaction functionality on the Payment Device has been Suspended; or
D, You do not have connectivity to the Internet; or

13.1 The Available Balance and transaction history of your Facility are available exclusively via the SquareOne App. You can check and view both by following the relevant prompts in the SquareOne App. This information is not available in paper, or any other electronic, form, including email or PDF.
13.2 If you notice an Unauthorised Transaction, any error (or possible error) in any transaction or statement relating to the Facility, then you shall contact the Support Centre straight away to report this in reasonable detail. We may ask you to provide additional written information concerning any matter and you must comply with all that we request.
13.3 It is your responsibility to regularly review your transaction history to identify Unauthorised Transactions.
14.1 While the Facility is in New Zealand Dollars, it can be used while temporarily outside of New Zealand.
14.2 Transactions in overseas countries that are restricted by virtue of the Laws of the United States of America may be declined.
14.3 Merchants in the European Union may be prohibited from accepting certain Payment Devices (including if the purchase amount or the face value of the Payment Device is above a certain amount, and the Payment Device holder has not been subject to certain identity verification). These regulations may change at any time, so you should check with European Union merchants if they will accept the Payment Device for certain transactions.
14.4 All transactions conducted overseas will be converted into New Zealand dollars. Transactions will either be converted directly into New Zealand dollars or will be first converted from the currency in which the transaction was made into United States Dollars and then converted to New Zealand dollars by MasterCard. MasterCard’s currency conversion procedure includes use of and selection by MasterCard of either (and in each case the rate used for a particular transaction is the rate MasterCard selects for the applicable currency on the date that the transaction is processed (the Central Site Business Date, as defined in the MasterCard rules), which may differ from the rate selected on the date the transaction occurred or on the date the transaction is posted to the Facility):
14.5 A foreign currency conversion Fee is payable when (and at the time that): i) the Payment Device holder makes a transaction on the Payment Device outside of New Zealand; ii) making a cash withdrawal in a currency other than New Zealand dollars; and iii) if the Payment Device holder makes a transaction on the Payment Device in any currency (including New Zealand Dollars) that is processed by a card scheme or financial institution or billed by the merchant outside of New Zealand. It may not always be clear, particularly when purchasing online, that the merchant, financial institution or card scheme processing is located outside of New Zealand. The Fee applies also any amount payable by us to MasterCard in connection with the transaction.
14.6 Any refunds in currencies other than New Zealand dollars will be converted to New Zealand dollars as at the date they are processed by MasterCard. This may lead to the refund being converted using an exchange rate different from the one used to convert the original purchase.
15.1 Subject to these Terms, a prepaid card Payment Device can be added to a Digital Wallet on an Electronic Device of a Child Wallet holder. A Parent Wallet cannot be added to a Digital Wallet. For security purposes, when a prepaid card Payment Device is added to a Digital Wallet we may require the Parent to complete a verification check which may be by email or SMS to the Parent’s contact details in the SquareOne App.
15.2 Not all merchants accept Digital Wallet transactions and we are in no way responsible for your inability to use a Digital Wallet. We are not the provider of the Digital Wallet and cannot be responsible for the way it functions or where it can be used.
Any queries on how to use the Digital Wallet should be directed to the Wallet Provider. Wallet Providers may change the conditions and features of a Digital Wallet beyond our control, and you agree that the use of a prepaid card Payment Device in a Digital Wallet is subject to any terms or conditions that may be imposed by the Wallet Provider from time to time.
15.3 A Prepaid Card can only be added to a Digital Wallet on a Mobile Device if the Child Wallet holder meets the minimum age restriction of the Wallet Provider. For Apple Pay, the Cardholder must be at least 13 years old, and for Google Pay, the Cardholder must be at least 16 years old.
15.4 As we are reliant upon your communication of the correct age of the Cardholder, it is your responsibility to ensure that the minimum age restrictions are complied with.
16.1 The Parent Wallet or the Payment Device may be cancelled by the Parent at any time. If the Parent Wallet is cancelled but not the Payment Device, the Payment Device will continue to be able to be used until the Value on the Payment Device reduces to zero. However, the Payment Device will not be able to be loaded with further Value after the cancellation of the Parent Wallet. Accordingly, before you cancel a Parent Wallet, you should carefully consider how Payment Devices will used in the future. In such situations, the Child Wallet holder should use all available Value by the Payment Device expiry date to ensure the benefit of the Value is received. In the circumstance where the Parent Wallet is cancelled or terminated and Value remains in a Child Wallet, the Value is deemed gifted to the Child and the Child may make a Cash Out Request per the Terms above as they apply to Parent Cash Out Requests which shall applying with all necessary amendments to accommodate Child Cash Out Requests in such circumstances.
16.2 On the final expiry or cancellation of the Payment Device, and where the Parent Facility has not been cancelled or Locked, you (as Child Wallet holder), you agree to any remaining Value on the Payment Device or in the relevant Child Wallet being Transferred to the Parent and we may Transfer the Value to the Parent Wallet
17.1 There are no direct or indirect fees and charges charged by us or a Related Person associated with the use of the Facility, Payment Devices and SquareOne App, other than the Fees and those expressly contemplated in these Terms.
17.2 You agree to pay us the Fees and any other amount expressly contemplated in these Terms. Fees are payable at the time noted next to the Fee or in these Terms. You authorise us and our Related Persons (as applicable) to deduct all Fees from the applicable Parent Wallet, Child Wallet or the debit or credit card that you have nominated to fund the Facility. All Fees are inclusive of any applicable GST.
17.3 Merchants, financial institutions and third-party payment providers may also impose a fee or surcharge for using their payment facilities.
Please note that these types of fees fall entirely outside our control and are not charged or received by us. Accordingly, we cannot accept any responsibility for these fees. Should a retailer, merchant, financial institution or third-party payment provider apply a surcharge for using the Facility, you will be responsible for paying this fee.
18.1 Without limitation, each PIN and Passcode should be unique and not readily associated with you or a common or repeated sequence or pattern.
18.2 Each PIN and Passcode must be kept private and not disclosed to anyone. Without limitation, you must not record your PIN in any way that may be read or decoded with reasonable effort or allow anyone to watch as the PIN is entered into any device.
19.1 If you change your mobile phone number, it will not be automatically changed or updated against the Facility. You shall update your details in the SquareOne App. If you change your mobile phone number without doing so, your Facility may not work properly. You acknowledge that another person may gain access to your previous mobile number that may still be linked to certain accounts of yours.
20.1 You must provide notice to the Support Centre immediately if:
20.2 Additionally, you should immediately Lock each Facility and Suspend each Payment Device using the SquareOne App where any of the above has occurred.
20.3 If we, a Related Person or MasterCard or any Provider has grounds to consider your Payment Device may have been compromised (including owing to fraudulent transaction or activity of any form or type, or otherwise) we may Lock the Facilities and/or Suspend your Payment Device. In which case, you will need to order a replacement Payment Device and incur the Fee.
20.4 If a Payment Device is lost or stolen, you may need to migrate the Facility to a replacement Payment Device. You will need to order a replacement Payment Device for a Fee. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to decide whether to migrate the Facility and may cancel or Lock the Facility after migration if we determine that the Facility may have been compromised or that the migration request was fraudulent or not authorised by you.
20.5 If you instead opt to cancel (or equivalent) a Facility or Payment Device via the SquareOne App, it will be permanently and irrevocably disabled and a replacement Facility or Payment Device will be required.
21.1 In connection with us being subject to the dispute resolution process of third parties, any claim by you in relation to a potential or actual apparent Unauthorised Transaction or fraudulent transaction or chargeback, must be lodged as soon as you become aware and within ninety (90) days of the date of the disputed transaction.
21.2 All claims after this date (or such earlier date as may be determined by MasterCard) may be declined or denied by us in our sole discretion. If your disputed transaction claim is unsuccessful, in whole or in part, you shall pay us the applicable Fee.
22.1 You may, on any Business Day, request, by notice in writing, for your Facility or Wallet or Payment Device to be cancelled by us.
22.2 Cancellation of each Facility and Wallet incurs a Fee (if any).
22.3 Each Facility, Wallet and Payment Device may be cancelled immediately by us in the event you become bankrupt or insolvent (or are deemed or presumed to be bankrupt or insolvent) under any applicable Law or as contemplated by these Terms.
22.4 Including if we no longer (either temporarily or permanently) have access to the MasterCard card scheme or processing services or platform, we (or we on the direction of MasterCard) may cancel your Facility, a Wallet or Payment Device immediately at any time without cause and with or without giving a reason and without incurring any liability to you.
At our sole discretion we may (but are not obliged to) give you 14 days' advance notice of such termination.
22.5 The Parent Wallet, Child Wallet and Payment Devices (including all associated intellectual property of any description) always remains the property of us (or MasterCard or a Provider or our licensors, in each case, as applicable) and, in respect of our intellectual property, to which you are granted a limited license to the minimum extent needed to give effect to the rights and arrangements contemplated by these Terms.
You grant both us and MasterCard a non-exclusive, royalty-free, world-wide, irrevocable, perpetual, sublicensable (through multiple tiers) right to use, reproduce, display, adapt, edit, copy, modify, transmit, publicly perform, extract and create derivative works from, in any media now known or not currently known) all data received by us from you and by us from MasterCard relating to you as may be received by MasterCard in connection with its processing services, processing platform or card scheme. “MasterCard” and the MasterCard Brand Mark are registered trademarks of MasterCard International Incorporated and MasterCard remains at all times the exclusive owner and/or licensor of the MasterCard intellectual property.

22.6 Available Balances in a Wallet at cancellation will be dealt with as contemplated in these Terms.
22.7 You waive all recourse to us and our Related Persons with respect to the Facility after cancellation of a Facility in accordance with these Terms.
23.1 Where applicable, the monthly subscription Fee will continue to be charged during periods of inactivity.
23.2 Where the Available Balance of the Facility is less than the amount of any Fee payable, we may (at our discretion) cancel the Facility. To the extent permitted by law, neither we nor a Related Person are required to inform you of the closure of your Facility in such circumstances and you waive all recourse to us, a Related Person, MasterCard and a Provider with respect to the Facility after such closure. After this time, your Payment Device cannot be used with the Facility, or any other Facility.
23.3 Where you have not operated on the account for a period of 6 years, whether by deposit, or withdrawal, or instruction in writing, or cancelled the Facility, we may transfer the balance of the Value on the Wallet to the Crown as “unclaimed money” in accordance with the Unclaimed Money Act 1971 (as may be amended).
This clause shall not apply where the funds or Value are $100 or less, and either before 1 June after the end of the period of 6 years, or, as the case may be, 25 years specified in section 4 of the Unclaimed Money Act 1971, that unclaimed money is, without limiting any claim that you may have to the funds, applied by us for our own benefit or for the benefit of any other person or for any purpose or object.

You shall punctually pay all amounts which the Trustee may be liable to pay from those funds in connection with these Terms, and any Fee representing a cost and expense incurable by the Trustee in the execution of the trust and the Trustee is deemed to be directed by you to satisfy any liability owing to it as a result of Losses and Expenses contemplated above out of the funds.
