The Internet website shall display a message inviting the online customer to upload a digital copy of their identity document or of any other supporting document in their file, as may be necessary.

Each website user may only hold one registered account. The means of access to such an account are strictly personal and may in no case be shared with third parties, including with other family or household members.

4. Account Security and Management

As part of the registration process, the website user will be invited to choose a combination of a username and a password, which will thereafter constitute his/her personal access codes to the protected parts of the website. Such access codes are strictly personal and confidential. Each website user is the sole responsible for their use and must refrain from disclosing them to any third party. The personal access codes may only be disclosed in the secured login area available on the main page of the iMoneytrans website published on https://www.imoneytrans.eu/. MONEYTRANS or its employees will never ask to registered online customers to disclose their personal access codes to them by phone or by e-mail. The online customers should disregard and immediately report to MONEYTRANS any situation whereby they are requested to provide their personal access codes via an email or a third-party website. The website users are additionally responsible for ensuring that their access codes are not stored on their browser software or are not recorded in any other way on the hard disk of the personal computer they use to access the iMoneytrans website.

Registered website users may ask at any time to modify or to suppress their personal access codes to the iMoneytrans website. They shall also immediately inform MONEYTRANS in case they notice an unauthorised use of their access codes, or any other breach in the security of their user account. MONEYTRANS shall endeavour to promptly modify or revoke the personal access codes of a registered user, upon receiving such a request. Until then and except in the case of gross or intentional negligence by MONEYTRANS, the users shall be solely responsible for any direct or indirect damage that may result, for them or for MONEYTRANS or for third-parties, of any use, whether fraudulent or not, made by them or by a third-party, of their personal access codes on the iMoneytrans website.

5. Liability

Except in the case of gross or intentional negligence on its part, Moneytrans cannot be held liable for any direct or indirect damages incurred by the website user, which would result from the use of the website or from the impossibility to use it, whatever the reason.

MONEYTRANS shall thus not be responsible, among others, for any direct or indirect damages caused by:

  1. The interruption of the access to the website and/or delays or losses in data transmission caused by disturbances in the communication systems that are not under the control of MONEYTRANS (such as power cuts, interruptions in the phone lines or connection problems caused by the Internet access provider of the user or by a specific software installed on the user’s computer);
  2. The unauthorised access and/or fraudulent use of the Internet website using the personal access codes of the user, made possible by a negligence on the part of the user (caused, for instance, by the inadequate protection of the confidentiality of his/her access codes against theft or against the transmission of computer viruses);
  3. The fraudulent use of a payment card on the iMoneytrans website;
  4. The occurrence of any event of force majeure.

MONEYTRANS shall in no case be liable, beyond the amount invoiced to the customer on the Internet website, of any direct or indirect damages caused by the delay in the execution or by the partial or non-execution of an order placed for a product or service via the iMoneytrans website, regardless of whether such damages were caused by the negligence of its employees or its foreign correspondents or by any other reason.

In the case where a product or service ordered online could not be delivered within a reasonable timeframe (3 working days) due to a failure in the service operated by MONEYTRANS, MONEYTRANS shall reimburse the total amount invoiced to the website user at the time of his/her order placed via the iMoneytrans website.

6. Use of the Online Money Transfer Service

International money transfer orders initiated via the iMoneytrans website are subject to transaction fees, transaction limits and payment conditions that vary depending on the country of destination of the funds.

A foreign exchange rate also applies to money transfer orders, which are paid in a different currency than the Euro in the country of destination. In such cases, the amount of the transaction will be converted into the relevant foreign currency at the time of initiating the money transfer order via the iMoneytrans website, and the exact amount to be received by the beneficiary in the foreign currency will also be indicated on the online transaction form.

The website user can simulate at any time the conditions applicable to a money transfer operation by using the “calculator” tool, which is available on the section of the iMoneytrans website dedicated to the online money transfer service.

In addition to the transaction fees, MONEYTRANS may also keep the difference between the currency exchange rate it receives and the currency exchange rate it applies to online money transfer operations initiated via its website. MONEYTRANS also reserves the right to apply more favourable exchange rates to online transactions initiated via its website than those applied to the operations of the customers of its physical points of sale in Belgium.

By validating an online money transfer order, the website users confirm agreeing to the financial and payment conditions applicable to their transactions, as described on the iMoneytrans website. The website users also declare that the personal identification data provided about them as well as about the designated beneficiaries of their funds abroad is accurate in all respects. MONEYTRANS reserves the right to request additional information about the users of the online money transfer service, or to suspend or cancel a pending transaction for any of the reasons listed in section 4 above.

7. Use of Payment Account Services

The registered website users may also open a payment account and initiate payment transactions via the iMoneyrans website. These payment services are not available in all countries and are reserved to customers legally residing in the country where the services are provided.

The use of payment accounts and of the related payment services is subject to the acceptance of separate Terms of Use which are published in the relevant sections of the iMoneytrans website.

8. Use of the Mobile Airtime Credit and of Electronic Money services (Belgium only)

MONEYTRANS relies on third-party companies to carry out the online purchasing orders of prepaid mobile airtime credit and of electronic money products (hereinafter also referred to as « top up products »), which are made available on its internet website (only for online customers based in Belgium).

The description and specifications of the top up products available for purchasing on the iMoneytrans website are based on the information provided by the manufacturers of the referred products. MONEYTRANS is in no case responsible, beyond their top up value, of the specifications of such products, for which it merely acts as intermediary for their selling and their purchasing.

The mobile airtime credit and electronic money products that can be ordered via the iMoneytrans website are only delivered upon confirmation of their payment on the website.

In the specific case of the international mobile top up product, the top up options are only available for active and valid mobile phone numbers.  During the online order of a mobile phone top up product, the purchaser must verify that the product selected matches his/her request and, in the case of the purchasing of airtime for an international mobile number, whether the phone number indicated in the ordering screen is correct, before validating the order. Any mobile top up product purchased on the iMoneytrans website and delivered as per the instructions of the purchaser shall not be eligible for a change or a reimbursement. MONEYTRANS shall thus not be responsible in the event that the online customer made a mistake in the product selection or gave a wrong phone number to top up during the online ordering process.

In line with the provisions set out in Section 10 hereunder, the website user must notify MONEYTRANS within 14 calendar days of the case where a top up product validly purchased on the iMoneytrans website could not be delivered in full or in due time. MONEYTRANS shall subsequently liaise with the customer and the third-party service provider in order to ensure that the product delivery goes through as quickly as possible.

 

MONEYTRANS reserves the right, at all times, to withdraw certain mobile airtime or electronic money products previously available on its website or to unilaterally modify their top up conditions without prior notice.

9. Cancellation and Refund

The website user holds the right to cancel a product or service ordered via the iMoneytrans website within 14 calendar days of its order. To cancel a pending order, the user must log on to his/her Moneytrans account, locate the relevant order from their transaction history, and then request its cancellation via the “cancel” button available on the same section of the website. The website user may alternatively request the cancellation of a pending order by contacting the Customer Service of Moneytrans as set out in Section 13.

In the case where the website user requests the cancellation of an order following a failure in the service provided by MONEYTRANS, MONEYTRANS shall reimburse the total amount invoiced to the customer at the time of the online order (transaction fees included), provided that the service ordered has not already been delivered. In all other cases and provided again that the ordered product or service whose cancellation is requested has not been delivered yet, MONEYTRANS shall reimburse to the customer the amount charged at the time of the online order, excluding the transaction fees, which shall remain due.

MONEYTRANS reserves all property and intellectual property rights on the iMoneytrans website itself as well as on all its components, including but not limited to any text, illustration, layout and computer programs published on it or underlying it.
