The Card is an electronic money product. When you credit value to your Card you will be purchasing electronic money from PAUL UK Ltd.

 

3. Obtaining your Card

Your Card is issued by, and remains the property of, PAUL UK Ltd. We do not authorise anyone else to sell or distribute the Card. You can only obtain Cards from PAUL UK Ltd shops.

 

4. Using your Card

A) Prepaid Card

You can use your Card at any participating PAUL UK Ltd shop. It is not a credit card, charge card or debit card. Before you can use your Card as payment method you will need to credit it with funds. Your Card will be activated when you first credit it with a minimum of £5.

You can credit and top-up stored value on your Card by cash or credit card at any participating PAUL UK Ltd shop. The minimum value you can credit your Card with each time is £5. The maximum credit value you can store on your Card at any time is £100.

You can check the balance on your Card at any time online or in any participating PAUL UK Ltd shop. We will keep a record of all transactions to ensure that this balance is correct at all times. You may be sent statements of itemised transactions from your Card account on request. You should keep your receipts and check your online statement to ensure that your account balance is correct.

B) Gift Card

Your Card is intended for your personal use and, as such, you are not entitled to sell, distribute or otherwise make any commercial use of your Card (including in relation to any promotional commercial activity).

For the avoidance of doubt, this shall not prevent you from giving a Card as a gift, provided that such gifting is not part of or connected to any commercial activity (including any promotional commercial activity).

C) Loyalty Card

Alternatively you can use your Card as a loyalty card to earn rewards and promotions on purchases of individual products.

Please note that your card must be registered online to enable you to earn and redeem loyalty points.

Each Card User must only use the Card in accordance with the Scheme rules. In order to earn reward points on purchases, the Card must be presented at the checkout prior to purchase. Reward points cannot be added after the transaction is completed. Each Card is personal to the Cardholder or relevant Card User to whom it is issued and neither the Card nor the reward points can be used by or transferred to any other person. The rewards points cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotion or discount. Reward points will not be awarded against the purchase of gift cards/gift vouchers, purchases paid for with vouchers issued under this Scheme or payment for purchases made through . Points cannot be added for online or phone orders. Certain other products may also be excluded from the Scheme or the reward points awarded reduced from time to time at our discretion. Any reward points earned on purchases which are subsequently cancelled or refunded will be deducted from the Card. For current reward points earning levels please see in-store or visit .

Earning points

You will earn 1 point for every £1 spent on every purchase you make in a PAUL UK Ltd shop.

Using your points

Each point is worth £0.01 and can be used against any purchase. The points can be used in all PAUL UK Ltd shops. Unfortunately you cannot spend your points online yet.

 

5. Expiry

Your Card does not have an expiry date. However, if you do not use your Card for a period of one year or more, your Card will cease to be valid and any remaining credit value stored on it will expire. Checking the balance on your Card will not constitute use of the Card for these purposes. Expired value cannot be transferred to a new card or redeemed. You will not be able to use your Card once it has ceased to be valid.

 

6. Cancellation and redemption

You have the right to cancel your Card at any time by returning it to PAUL UK Ltd Customer Services (see details on the website). You are also entitled to redeem at any time any unexpired and unused stored value on your Card provided: (i) the balance on your Card is at least £5; (ii) we have no reason to suspect that you are engaged in fraudulent or other criminal activities; and (iii) we are not prohibited from redeeming that stored value by any applicable law, regulation, court order or instruction or guidance of a competent regulatory authority.

If you wish to cancel your Card and/or obtain a redemption of any value stored on your Card, you must contact PAUL UK Ltd Customer Services. You cannot obtain a redemption of any value stored on your card at PAUL UK Ltd shops.

An administrative redemption fee of £2.50 will be applied each time that you redeem value stored on your Card, and you will be reminded of this when you contact PAUL UK Ltd Customer Services to request cancellation of the Card. This fee is charged in respect of the administrative costs of processing your redemption payment. No redemption fee will be applied if you ask us to redeem the value stored on your Card within 14 days of the first time that you credit it with funds.

Any redemption payment amount will be paid to you by cheque to your home address as registered against the card.

To enable us to comply with our legal obligations, we may need to carry out checks to verify your identity before processing a redemption request and we reserve the right to refuse to process any redemption request if you fail to assist with that verification process.

If you have registered your Card through the PAUL UK Ltd website, you should immediately report any loss, theft, fraudulent or unauthorised use of your Card to PAUL UK Ltd Customer Services or on our website.

In the event of loss, theft, fraud or other unauthorised use of your Card, or if your Card is damaged or malfunctions, we may, at our sole discretion, replace your Card and transfer any credit value stored on it at the time of reporting to a replacement card. Non-exhaustive circumstances in which we may determine, in our sole discretion, that we will not replace your Card include those where we reasonably believe that the notified incident has been caused by your willful breach of these Terms and Conditions or if there are reasonable grounds for suspecting that you are or have been engaged in fraudulent or other unlawful conduct. Alternatively we may, at our sole discretion, procure a redemption payment in respect of any outstanding value stored on your Card.

If we agree to replace your Card, a replacement card will be delivered to your home address as registered against the card, usually within 7 days of you first notifying PAUL UK Ltd Customer Services of the incident. If we decide to redeem any outstanding balance to you the redemption payment amount will be paid to you by cheque, to your home address, but the redemption fee will not be charged.

Replacement cards will be posted to your registered home address only. We reserve the right to charge a replacement card fee for each replacement card in the event that you are issued with more than two replacement cards within any 6 month period.

If you subsequently find or retrieve a Card which you have reported lost or stolen, you must notify PAUL UK Ltd Customer Services immediately.
