CHANGES TO MOBILE BANKING TERMS (19th April 2016)

We’re making some changes to Pay Your Contacts.

 

As a reminder, Pay Your Contacts allows you to send payments using the payee’s mobile phone number instead of their account details.

 

On 19 April 2016, we’ll be removing the part of the service that allows you to send this type of payment to someone based on them having a Visa debit, credit or prepaid card. You’ll still be able to send a Pay Your Contacts payment to someone who is registered for the NatWest, RBS, Ulster Bank Northern Ireland, NatWest Offshore or Isle of Man Bank App or for the industry wide Paym service and you can still send other payments from the App to anyone you’ve already set up as a payee on online banking.

 

We’re updating our Mobile Banking Terms to:

  • reflect the changes we’re making to Pay Your Contacts;
  • explain the different ways that we can tell you about changes to the Mobile Banking Terms; and
  • make them clearer to you.

Please read the updated Mobile Banking Terms carefully. They’ll take effect on 19 April 2016 and will stay in the “More” section of the App for future reference.

 

Need more help?      

If you have any queries, please contact us on 0345 366 7001 (or +44 2381 244179 from outside the UK) or visit ulsterbank.co.uk/mobile.

 

If you no longer wish to use Mobile Banking, you can cancel this service by deleting the App from your phone and texting “STOP” to 87898. (Standard network charges may apply)

3.1 While we will make reasonable efforts to provide the Mobile Banking Service, we will not be liable for any failure to provide the Mobile Banking Service, in part or full, for any cause that is beyond our reasonable control. This includes, in particular, any suspension of the Mobile Banking Service resulting from maintenance and upgrades to our systems or the systems of any party used to provide the Mobile Banking Service, outages on any phone network or in the case of mobile networks where you are not in an area of mobile coverage.

 

3.2 The Mobile Banking Service application (the “Application”) is provided “as is” with no representation, guarantee or warranty of any kind as to its functionality.

 

4. SECURITY PROCEDURE

4.1 You must keep your security details secret and take all reasonable precautions to prevent unauthorised or fraudulent use of them.

 

4.2 You must not disclose your security details to any other person or record your security details in any way that may result in them becoming known to another person.

 

4.3 Please note that after initial registration we will never contact you (or ask anyone to do so on our behalf), with a request to disclose your security details in full. If you receive any such request from anyone (even if they are using our name and logo and appear to be genuine) then it is likely to be fraudulent and you must not supply your security details to them in any circumstances. Additionally, you should report any such requests to us immediately.

 

4 4 If transactions using the Mobile Banking Service are permitted, now or in the future, and are carried out using your security details, but you subsequently show that a transaction was not authorised by you, you will not be liable for that transaction provided you have kept your security details secret, not acted fraudulently, acted with reasonable care and acted in accordance with these Terms.

 

4.5 If your device is lost or stolen or if you suspect that anyone knows your security details you must contact us immediately.

 

4.6 There your security details are lost or stolen, or you do not keep them safe as you are obliged to do under these Terms, you may be responsible for unauthorised transactions, up to a maximum of £50. You may be liable for the full amount where you have failed intentionally, or with gross negligence, to keep your security details secret. Unless you have acted fraudulently, you will not be liable for any unauthorised payment which is made after you told us that your security details are no longer safe.

 

4.7 You will be responsible for all instructions given by you or anyone acting with your authority between the time you pass the security procedure until you exit from the Mobile Banking Service. Please note that this includes any input errors or instructions sent by someone other than yourself so please do not leave your device unattended while you are still logged onto the Mobile Banking Service.

 

4.8 You are responsible for making sure information either shown or stored on your device is kept secure.

 

4.9 You must delete the Application from your device if you change your device or dispose of it.

 

4.10 You must advise us of any change to your mobile phone number or email address.

 

5. TRANSACTIONS

5.1 Unless Term 5.5 applies, when you instruct us to make a payment through the Mobile Banking Service, we will make the payment using the Faster Payments Service if possible. If we cannot use the Faster Payments Service, we will advise you of alternative methods of making the payment.

 

5.2 You acknowledge that you are responsible for all transactions carried out using the Mobile Banking Service and for the repayment of any debt that arises from use of the Mobile Banking Service.

 

5.3 Pay Your Contacts

5.3.1 You can only register to use Pay your contacts if your account is held in Northern Ireland.

 

5.3.2 If you are registered to use Pay your contacts you can ask us to make a payment by using the Application to give us the United Kingdom mobile phone number of the person you would like to make the payment to (the “payee”) together with the amount of the payment in Sterling. When you give us a mobile phone number you consent to us debiting your account for the amount specified.

 

5.3.3 When you ask us to make a payment using Pay your contacts, the mobile phone number that you give us identifies the payee. You are responsible for ensuring that you provide us with the correct mobile phone number and amount.

 

5.3.4 We will inform you within the Application if we are unable to send a payment.

 

5.3.5 Once you have asked us to make a payment using Pay your contacts you will not be able to cancel that payment. If you realise that you have given us an incorrect mobile phone number, you must inform us as soon as possible by contacting our telephone banking service. Where circumstances permit, we will try to stop the payment, but may not be able to do so. We will not be liable to you if we are unable to stop a payment in these circumstances.

 

5.3.6 For your and our security, we will place a daily limit on transactions using Pay your contacts and a limit on the amount of any one Pay your contacts transaction. Details of these limits can be found on our website at www.ulsterbank.co.uk/mobile.

 

5.4 Paying Registered Customers

5.4.1 You may ask us to make a payment to other customers who are registered to use the Application (“Registered Customers”). When you give us the payee’s mobile phone number and the amount of the payment this will be your payment instruction to us. The payment will normally be processed immediately but may sometimes take up to two hours. Payments using Pay your contacts will be identified in the payee’s account by your mobile phone number.

 

5.4.2 Payments to Registered Customers will be paid into the account linked to the debit card which the payee used to register for the Mobile Banking Service.

 

5.5 Paying Non-Registered Customers

5.5.1 You may ask us to make a payment to someone who is not a Registered Customer (a “Non-Registered payee”) provided they have a Visa debit card, Visa credit card, or a Visa pre-paid card which is eligible to receive third party payments.

 

5.5.2 When you instruct us to pay a Non-Registered payee by giving us their mobile phone number and the payment amount, we will work in partnership with Visa Europe Limited (“Visa”) to process your instruction.

 

5.5.3 Some Non-Registered payees will already have their mobile phone number and Visa card details registered with Visa. These Non-Registered payees will be treated by Visa as “Registered Visa recipients”.

 

5.5.4 When you instruct us to pay a Non-Registered payee who is a Registered Visa recipient, you initiate the payment transaction and Visa will process the payment on our behalf.

 

5.5.5 When you instruct us to pay a Non-Registered payee who is not a Registered Visa recipient.

a) Visa will send a text message to the Non-Registered payee on our behalf informing them that you wish to make a payment to them. For security reasons Visa will not state the amount of the payment in this text message. It is your responsibility to provide the Non-Registered payee with this information.

b) The Non-Registered payee will have up to seven days from the day Visa send the text message to collect the payment. After the collection period has expired the payment request will no longer be valid and you will have to make a fresh payment request if you still wish to make the payment.

c) To collect the payment, the Non-Registered payee must visit the Visa Europe collections website referred to in the text message and provide their eligible Visa card details as well as the amount of the payment. When the Non-Registered payee provides this information they initiate the payment transaction and Visa will process the payment on our behalf.

 

5.5.6 For all Non-Registered payees, if the payment is successful it will be credited to the Non-Registered payee’s account by the end of the business day following initiation of the payment transaction. If the payment is unsuccessful you will be sent a text message to let you know, and you will have to make a fresh payment request if you still wish to make the payment.
