A real time balance may not take into account pending debits. Despite this fact, COG will provide you with information about pending debits as and when it is available.
8.2. Loading your Card Account
To load your Card Account, you must request an electronic transfer from either your bank account or a debit card. In such a transaction, you are instructing COG to instruct Card Issuer and Account Provider to accept electronic transfers via direct deposit, or from a debit card, in the amount you specify, and to deposit such funds into your Card Account.
You can deposit money to your Card Account only from a bank account registered in your name. Transfers from third parties, including but not limited to companies, friends and family, will be returned to the sender's account after deducting third-party processing fees. Regular salary payments can be an exception. Please contact COG Customer Support in that case.
9. Identity Verification
You agree to cooperate with all requests made by us or any of our third-party service providers in connection with your Card Account, to identify you, verify your identity, or validate your funding sources or Transactions. The Card Issuer reserves the right to close, suspend, or limit access to your Card Account and/or the COG Services in the event we are unable to obtain or verify such Information. You authorize The Card Issuer, directly or through COG third party service providers, to make any inquiries we consider necessary to validate your identity. This may include asking you for further information, requiring you to provide your date of birth, or other information that will allow the Card Issuer and Account Provider to reasonably identify you, including requiring you to take steps to confirm ownership of your phone number or payment instruments or verifying your Information against third party databases or through other sources. The Card Issuer and Account Provider may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents at any time or proof of your address.
You are responsible for maintaining adequate security and control of your mobile phone, any and all IDs, passwords, personal identification numbers (PINs), or any other codes that you use to access the COG Services, COG Card and your Card Account. You should also carefully safeguard your Card. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your login credentials or other breach of security, either through the app, by phone at 0203 718 3143 or by email at [email protected].
All Transactions are processed by automated methods, and anyone who obtains your access credentials and/or mobile phone could use it to transfer your money without your permission. If you furnish your mobile phone and/or COG Services access credentials to a third party, a third party uses your login credentials, or you negligently make your mobile phone or access credentials available to a third party who then uses them, you will be liable for the Transactions conducted and other use or misuse of your Card Account until and unless the Card Issuer and Account Provider has been notified otherwise. You are responsible for any use or misuse with respect to your login credentials. We may require you to close your Card Account and open a new one, and/or change your COG Services access credentials.
11. Methods of Sending, Spending, Requesting or Exchanging Money
By sending, spending, requesting, collecting, splitting or exchanging money, you authorize and instruct COG to communicate your instruction to the Card Issuer and Account Provider to execute the transaction. Once you have provided your authorization for the Transaction, you will not be able to cancel it, except as provided for by applicable law. You are solely responsible for confirming the accuracy of any Transactions made by you.
11.1. Refused and Refunded Transactions
When you send money, the recipient is not required to accept it. You agree that you will not hold COG liable for any damages resulting from a recipient’s decision not to accept a payment. Any unclaimed, refunded or denied payment will be returned to you through the original Payment Instrument. Any unclaimed payment will be returned to you within 30 days of the date you initiated payment.
11.2. Sending Money to Non-COG User
COG Services may allow you to send money to someone who is not yet a COG User. In all cases, upon the sending of money, COG will invite the non-COG User to become a COG User in order to receive your payment or to receive money in their bank account. As part of that process, you authorize COG to send mail, email, SMS messages, and push notifications to the non-COG User on your behalf. If the non-COG User decides to accept your payment in their bank account, then COG will communicate these instructions to the Card Issuer and Account Provider to execute the Transaction. A third party may be instructed under an agreement with the Card Issuer to complete the Transaction to the non-COG User.

13. Fraud Monitoring
COG and the Card Issuer may monitor your Transactions for the purpose of determining fraudulent activity and whether you are in good standing. Based on our methods, which are subject to change without notice, the Card Issuer may decide to suspend your Card Account, or in other ways limit your privileges. COG and the Card Issuer will use all available information to help combat fraud on our system. If you believe your Card Account has been opened or used in an unauthorized manner in connection with a Transaction, please contact us.
14. Lost, stolen or & unauthorised transactions
You should treat the value on the Card Account like cash in a wallet. If the Card is lost or stolen or there is unauthorised use of a Card, you may lose some or all of the value on your Card Account in the same way as if you lost cash. If you believe that any Transaction posted to your Card Account is unauthorised, has been posted in error or is otherwise incorrect, you must also let us know immediately by contacting Customer Support. We may require you to provide details in writing. You may be required to help us, our agents or any enforcement agency, at our request, if a Card is lost or stolen or if we suspect a Card is being misused. If a Card is reported lost or stolen, we will cancel it and may issue a new one. A fee may apply. If you or a User finds the Card after it has been reported lost, stolen or misused, you must destroy it and inform us immediately.
15. Location-Based Data
16. Transactions made in foreign currencies
16.1. If you use your Card to purchase goods or services or withdraw cash in a currency other than the currencies of your Card Account or if in order to facilitate any of your Transactions the currencies in your Card Account need to be converted, then such Transaction will be converted to the required currency on the day of the Transaction. COG and the Card Issuer will use the prevailing wholesale interbank exchange rate at the time of the transaction. A good guide for the exchange rates on each day is the Mastercard Currency Conversion Tool: https://www.mastercard.us/en-us/consumers/get-support/convert-currency.html..
16.2. We reserve the right to revert foreign exchange trades done with you if traded prices differ from market rates due to any external factors such as volatile market conditions, system failure or any other external factors.
16.3. We will make every effort to provide you with the best possible FX rates – wholesale interbank rates. However, in certain circumstances it is not possible due to the FX market being closed, e.g., weekends or holidays. In such cases we might provide FX rates different from the last closed price to reflect a possible price gap on the market open.
If you have a Dispute with one or more Users or the Card Issuer, you release COG (and our parent, our affiliates, and our and their respective officers, directors, agents, joint ventures, employees and suppliers) from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such Disputes. You agree that you will not involve COG in any litigation or other Dispute arising out of or related to any Transaction, agreement, or arrangement with any User, the Card Issuer, advertiser or other third party in connection with the COG Services. If you attempt to do so, (i) you shall pay all costs and attorneys’ fees of COG and its affiliates and shall provide indemnification as set forth below.
18. Change in service providers
The Card Issuer and COG have the right to change any of its third-party service providers, including without limitation the Card Processor, with or without notice, that we, in our sole discretion, deem to be reasonable in the circumstances. You agree to cooperate with the Card Issuer, COG and any other service providers selected by the Card Issuer as reasonably required for the Card Issuer or such other service providers to perform services for which it is responsible.
19. COG is not a Card Issuer, Seller, or a Processor
19.1. COG is a technical service provider as defined in the Payment Services Regulations 2009 and is not a bank or other financial institution. Your conducting Transactions using the COG Services are between you the Card Issuer and Account Provider, and not with COG or any affiliates. COG is not a party to your Transactions.
19.2. In order to use the COG Services you will be issued a COG branded card by the Card Issuer and you hereby authorize us to share any information you provide to us with the Card Issuer. The Card Issuer will use such information that you provide in accordance with its privacy practices, including AML & fraud prevention. The Card Issuer will receive, hold and transfer funds on your behalf.
19.3. COG does not receive, hold, transfer or come into possession of your funds. COG provides the following technical services: administering your enrollment into that service; receiving and relaying your transfer instructions for execution by the Card Issuer and Account Provider; reporting services regarding the funds held or transferred for you by the Card Issuer and Account Provider; and associated customer support.
20. Customer Support
If you have an inquiry regarding a payment made with COG, or you believe there has been an error or unauthorised Transaction, please contact the COG Customer Support immediately. Customer Support can be contacted via app, by phone 0203 718 3143 or by email at [email protected].
21. Recording Calls
You understand and agree that COG may, without further notice or warning and in our discretion, monitor or record the telephone conversations you or anyone acting on your behalf has with COG or its agents for quality control and training purposes or for its own protection. You acknowledge and understand that, while your communications with COG may be overheard, monitored, or recorded without further notice or warning, not all telephone lines or calls may be recorded by COG, and COG does not guarantee that recordings of any particular telephone calls will be retained or retrievable.
22. Closing your Card Account
22.1. How you May Close your Card Account
If you wish to close your Card Account, you must contact us by phone at +44 (0) 1903 680 360. Your Card Account can be closed only by you and only over the phone. If you call us with such a request, COG will take certain steps to verify your identity and you agree to cooperate in such verification. Once COG has verified your identity and confirmed you wish to close your Card Account, the Card Issuer will close your Account. When your Card Account is closed, any pending instructions will be canceled.
22.2. Limitations on Closing your Card Account
You may not close your Card Account to evade an investigation. If you attempt to close your Card Account while the Card Issuer or COG are conducting an investigation, it may freeze the account to protect all parties to the COG Services, its affiliates, or a third party against any liability. You will remain liable for any obligations related to your Card Account even after the Card Account is closed.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold the parties to these Terms and Conditions, our parents, affiliates and the officers, directors, agents, joint venturers, employees and suppliers of COG harmless from any claim or demand (including attorneys’ fees) made or incurred by any third party due to or arising out of your breach of these Terms and Conditions, your improper use of the COG Services, and/or your violation of any law or the rights of a third party.
24. Limitations of Liability
In no event shall COG, our parent and affiliates, and the officers, directors, agents, joint venturers, employees and suppliers of COG (“COG Parties”) be liable for lost profits or any special, incidental or consequential damages arising out of or in connection with our website, the COG services or these Terms and Conditions, however arising. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. The liability of COG parties to you or any third parties in any circumstance and in the aggregate is limited to £50. In addition, to the extent permitted by applicable law COG parties are not liable, and you agree not to hold these parties responsible, for any damages or losses (including, but not limited to, loss of money, goodwill, or reputation, profits, or other intangible losses or any special, indirect, or consequential damages) resulting directly or indirectly from: (1) Your use of or your inability to use the COG Services; (2) Delays or disruptions in the COG Services; (3) Viruses or other malicious software obtained by accessing the COG Services or any associated site or service; (4) Glitches, bugs, errors, or inaccuracies of any kind in the COG Services; (5) The content, actions, or inactions of third parties; (6) A suspension or other action taken with respect to your Card Account; (7) Your need to modify practices, content, or behavior, or your loss of or inability to do business, as a result of changes to these Terms and Conditions or COG’s policies. COG reserves the right to modify its policies and these Terms and Conditions at any time consistent with the provisions outlined herein.
25. No Warranty
The COG Services are provided “as is,” “as available” and without any representation or warranty, whether express, implied or statutory. COG, and the officers, directors, agents, joint venturers, employees and suppliers of COG, our parent or our affiliates, (collectively, “COG Parties”), make no representation or warranty of any kind whatsoever for the services or the content, materials, information and functions made accessible by the COG Services used on or accessed through the COG Services, or for any breach of security associated with the transmission of sensitive information through the COG Services. The COG Parties do not warrant that the functions contained in the COG Services will be uninterrupted or error free. The COG Parties shall not be responsible for any service interruptions, including, but not limited to, system failures or other interruptions that may affect the receipt, processing, acceptance, completion or settlement of payment transactions or the COG Services. The COG Parties specifically disclaim any implied warranties of title, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.
COG does not have any control over the products or services that are paid for with the COG Services. COG is not responsible for the quality, performance, or any consequential results of the products and or services purchased during the transactions. COG cannot ensure that a merchant you are dealing with will actually complete the transaction or is authorized to do so. COG does not guarantee continuous, uninterrupted or secure access to any part of the COG Services, and operation of the COG Services may be interfered with by numerous factors outside of our control. COG will make reasonable efforts to ensure that requests for electronic debits and credits involving bank accounts and credit cards are processed in a timely manner but COG makes no guarantees or warranties regarding the amount of time needed to complete processing because the COG Services are dependent upon many factors outside of our control, such as delays in the banking system. Some states do not allow the disclaimer of implied warranties, so the foregoing disclaimers may not apply to you. This paragraph gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other legal rights that vary from state to state.
26. Complete Agreement
These Terms and Conditions and the Cardholder Agreement (set out in Annex 1), set forth the entire understanding between you, the Card Issuer, and COG (as technical service provider) with respect to the COG Services. Any other terms which by their nature should survive, will survive the termination of these Terms and Conditions. Unless stated otherwise in these Terms and Conditions, if any provision of these Terms and Conditions is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be struck and the remaining provisions shall be enforced.
27. Force Majeure
We shall not be liable for any delays in processing or other nonperformance caused by such events as fires, telecommunications failures, utility failures, power failures, equipment failures, software failures, labor strife, riots, war, terrorist attack, nonperformance of our vendors or suppliers, acts of God, or other causes over which COG has no reasonable control, and nothing in this section will affect or excuse your liabilities and obligations under these Terms and Conditions.
28. Governing Law
You agree that the laws of the United Kingdom, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms and Conditions and any claim or Dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and COG.
