You spend US$200.00;
The Australian dollar amount is US$200.00 x $0.95 = $190.00;

You may be required to confirm details of the loss, theft or misuse in writing (and to provide information in the confirmation) and you must comply with that requirement.
If any lost Card or Device is subsequently found, it must not be used, you must not attempt to use the Card associated with that Device.
Should your Card be retained by any ATM, the Card is deemed to be lost or stolen and hence cannot be recovered. In that event, you will need to contact Vault on Vault or EML and arrange to be issued with a new Card. Replacement cards are subject to the fees included in section 15.6.
15.13. LIABILITY FOR UNAUTHORISED TRANSACTIONS
Your liability for losses arising from Unauthorised Transactions will be determined under the ePayments Code.
Where you are not liable
You will not be liable for losses resulting from Unauthorised Transactions where you have not contributed to the loss.

– a transaction requiring the use of a Card and/or Pass Code that occurred before you have received the Card and/or Pass Code (including a reissued Card and/or Pass Code);
– a transaction being incorrectly debited more than once to your Card; or
– an Unauthorised Transaction performed after you have informed us that your Card has been misused, lost or stolen, or the security of a Pass Code has been breached.
You are not liable for loss arising from an Unauthorised Transactions that can be made using an Identifier without the Card or a PIN. Where a transaction can be made using the Card, or a Card and an Identifier (such as a Contactless Transaction using the Tokenised Card) without a PIN, you are liable only if you unreasonably delay reporting the loss or theft of a Device or the Physical Card.
Where you are liable
You are liable for loss resulting from an Unauthorised Transaction if we can prove on the balance of probability that you contributed to the loss through fraud or breaching sections 15.11 and 15.12 of these Terms and Conditions. In those circumstances you are liable in full for the actual losses that occur between when you become aware (or should reasonably have become aware) of the theft or misuse of a Card or Device or the compromise of the PIN or Pass Code, and when you reported it to us; however:
– you are not liable for the portion of losses incurred on any one day more than any applicable daily transaction limit; and
– you are not liable for the portion of losses incurred in any period more than any applicable periodic transaction limit; and
– you are not liable for the portion of losses that exceeds the Available Balance; and
– you are not liable for the portion of losses incurred if you and we had not agreed that the Available Balance could be accessed using the Card or identifier and/or PIN used to perform the transaction.
You will be liable for losses arising from an Unauthorised Transaction that occurs because you contributed to losses by leaving a Physical Card in an ATM, as long as the ATM incorporates reasonable safety standards that mitigate the risk of a Physical Card being left in the ATM.
You will be liable for losses arising from an Unauthorised Transaction if we can prove on the balance of probability that you contributed to those losses by unreasonably delaying reporting the misuse, loss or theft of a Card or Device, or that the security of all PIN or Device Pass Codes has been breached. In those circumstances, you are liable in full for the actual losses that occur between when you become aware of the security compromise, or should reasonably have become aware in the case of a lost or stolen Card, but:
– you are not liable for the portion of losses incurred on any one day more than any applicable daily transaction limit; and
– you are not liable for the portion of losses incurred in any period more than any applicable periodic transaction limit; and
– you are not liable for the portion of losses that exceeds the Available Balance; and
– you are not liable for the portion of losses incurred if we and you had not agreed that the Available Balance could be accessed using the Card or Identifier and/or PIN used to perform the transaction.
If a PIN was required to perform an Unauthorised Transaction not already covered above, you will be liable for the lesser of:
– $150; or
– the Available Balance; or
– the actual loss at the time that the misuse, loss or theft of a Card or breach of PIN security is reported to us, excluding that portion of the losses incurred on any one day which exceeds any relevant daily of other periodic transaction limit.
If you report an Unauthorised Transaction, we will not hold you liable for losses arising from the Unauthorised Transaction for an amount greater than your liability if we exercised any rights under Mastercard Scheme Rules, at the time of the report, against other parties to the Mastercard scheme (for example, chargeback rights).
Important Information about Chargebacks
A chargeback is a right under the Mastercard Scheme Rules by which a transaction can effectively be reversed by us debiting an amount to the merchant’s financial institution and crediting back to your Available Balance. We can only process chargebacks if the Mastercard Scheme Rules allow us to.
In some circumstances, you may be able to request a chargeback of a transaction when you have a dispute with a merchant; for example:
– where goods or services you paid for using the Card were either not as described or defective;
– where goods or services you paid for using the Card were not provided;
– where there was an Unauthorised Transaction on the Card;
– the transaction amount differs to the purchase amount; or
– where you believe a transaction has been duplicated.
If you believe that you are entitled to a chargeback, you must notify us as soon as possible by contacting EML as the Mastercard Scheme Rules impose time limits for initiating chargebacks. The time limit is generally 90 days from the date of the disputed transaction.
If you request a chargeback, we may need you to provide additional information. If we do ask you for additional information and you do not provide it within 10 days, then you may lose any rights to the chargeback and if it has already been processed, we may reverse it.
Please note that if we process a chargeback, the merchant may have rights under the Mastercard Scheme Rules to have the transaction investigated further, and this can in some circumstances result in the chargeback being reversed (which means the original transaction might be reinstated by being debited to your Available Balance).
You acknowledge that you will not receive paper statements from us regarding the operation of your Card. Periodic statements showing the transactions on your Card and the Available Balance are available on the Website or App.
Provided you have registered your Card, it’s balance and transaction history will be made available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, through the Website or App and can be accessed as instructed on the PIN Mailer at no charge (see section 15.5 “Using the Card”).
If you notice any error (or possible error) in any transaction or statement relating to Card, then you must notify EML immediately. We may request you to provide additional written information concerning any error (or possible error) and you must comply with that request.
It is your responsibility to regularly review your transaction history to identify Unauthorised Transactions.
15.15. CARD EXPIRY
The Card is valid until the expiry date shown on it unless it is cancelled before then.
Your Card cannot be used after expiry. You cannot access any value loaded on the expired Card unless a replacement Card is issued to you.
Vault may issue you with a replacement Card if requested by you at any time after expiry and provided you have registered your details with us, including your name and Australian address. Vault reserve the right not to issue a replacement Card to you, in which case we will return any Available Balance on your Card to you.
15.16. REPLACEMENT CARDS
If your Card is misused, lost or stolen, you should notify Vault or EML in accordance with section 15.12 so that your Card can be cancelled.
You can request Vault to provide you with a replacement Card.
A replacement Card will be arranged after you notify us that your Card or Card details are misused, lost or stolen in accordance with section 15.12 and the misused, lost or stolen Card has been blocked. You will need to confirm your personal details, register and activate the new Card in accordance with section 15.5.
15.17. CARD REVOCATION AND CANCELLATION
We may cancel your Card at any time. Where possible, we will give you 20 days advance notice of the cancellation. However, we may act without prior notice if:
– we believe that use of the Card may cause loss to you or to us; or
– we believe that it is required for security purposes, including where it used for Unauthorised Transactions or due to fraud; or
– you breach any material term or conditions of this PDS, including these Terms and Conditions; or
– we suspect the Card has been used illegally.
If we cancel your Card, we will give you notice as soon as reasonably practical afterwards.
We may revoke the Card at any time without cause or notice. If we ask you to, you must surrender or destroy the revoked Card and you must not use the revoked Card.
On the revocation or cancellation of the Card, we will pay the Available Balance to you when:
– we are satisfied that there are no un-cancelled or unexpired authorisations or approvals on your Card;
– we are satisfied that there are no further amounts that we will be debiting, or that we anticipate debiting, against the Available Balance;
– we are satisfied the funds on your Card belong to you;
– if EML require it, EML have received the surrendered or cancelled Card from you; and
– you give Vault instructions to pay the Available Balance by sending it to a bank account nominated by you.
15.18. ACCESSING YOUR AVAILABLE BALANCE IF YOU DON’T HAVE A CURRENT CARD
Whether or not you have a current Card to transact against your Available Balance, you may instruct us or Vault to pay the Available Balance by sending it to your nominated bank account for a fee as outlined within 15.6 (Funds Redemption Request). You may be able to do this by contacting us. We do not have to process a Funds Redemption Request until we are satisfied of your identity.
Upon receiving a Funds Redemption Request, we will pay the Available Balance to you when:
– we are satisfied that there are no un-cancelled or unexpired authorisations or approvals on the Card; and
– we are satisfied that there are no further amounts that we will be debiting, or that we anticipate debiting, against the Available Balance; and
– if we require it, we have received any surrendered or cancelled Cards from you.
15.19. LIABILITIES AND DISCLAIMERS
We are not liable:
– if, through no fault of our own, the Available Balance is not enough to cover a transaction;
– if, through no fault of our own, an EFTPOS Device or system does not work properly;
– if circumstances beyond EML control prevent a transaction, despite any reasonable precautions having been taken by us;
– for any loss resulting from any failure due to events outside our reasonable control;
– for any loss resulting from any system failure or industrial dispute outside our reasonable control;

– for anything specifically excluded or limited elsewhere in these Conditions of Use.
– your liability for Unauthorised Transactions will be determined according to the ePayments Code; and
– we will not avoid any obligation to you under the ePayments Code on the basis that another party to a shared electronic payments network (to which we are also a party) has caused the failure to meet the obligation.
Our liability in any event shall not exceed the amount of the Available Balance except in relation to:
– Unauthorised Transactions; and
– consequential losses arising from a malfunction of a system or equipment provided by any party to a shared electronic network (unless you should reasonably have been aware that the system or equipment was unavailable or malfunctioning, in which case our liability is limited to correcting any errors and refunding any fees or charges imposed on you).
If any warranties or conditions are implied because of Part 2 of the Australian Securities and Investments Commission Act 2001 or any similar law in respect of services supplied under these Terms and Conditions or in connection with the Card, then our liability for a breach of such a warranty or condition will in any event be limited to:
– the supplying of the services again; or
– the payment of the cost of having the services supplied again.
– does not make or give any express or implied warranty or representation in connection with the Card (including quality or standard or fitness for any purpose), other than as set out in the PDS and these Terms and Conditions or when the warranty or representation is imposed or required by law and cannot be excluded; and
– is not liable for any loss you suffer (including indirect or consequential loss) arising in connection with the Card (whether a failure to provide the Card or its loss, theft or destruction).
EML’s obligation to the Cardholder in relation to the functionality of the Device Wallet is limited to securely supplying information to Pays Providers to allow the use of the Card within a Device Wallet. EML is not otherwise liable for the use, functionality or availability of the Device Wallet, the availability of compatible EFTPOS Devices, or a reduced level of service caused by the failure of third party communications and network providers (except to the extent that we are deemed liable under the ePayments Code).
You will need to agree to the respective Pays Provider’s terms and conditions to use the Tokenised Card.
Any failure or delay enforcing a term of these Terms and Conditions does not mean a waiver of them.
15.20. ANTI-MONEY LAUNDERING AND COUNTER TERRORISM FINANCING OBLIGATIONS
