All Payment Orders will be transacted from an E-Account 9.2 An E-Account is an electronic money account (denominated in currency selected from the available currencies) which enables electronic payments to be sent and received. The electronic money on an E-Account is issued in accordance with the Regulations and Applicable Laws. The currency of an E-Account cannot be changed once the processing of payment has been attempted. The electronic money held on an E-Account will not earn any interest and (subject to closing an E-Account in accordance with the Agreement) does not expire. 9.3 You acknowledge that electronic money accounts are not bank accounts and accordingly the UK’s Financial Services Compensation Scheme does not apply to an E-Account. We strictly adheres to the safeguarding requirements under the Regulations which are designed to ensure the safety and liquidity of funds deposited in electronic money accounts. However as in the case in relation to all Electronic Money Issuers, in the unlikely event that we become insolvent, the electronic money held in an E-Account may be at risk. 9.4 The electronic money on an E-Account belongs to the person or persons registered with us as the holder and to no other person and an AEc-count may not be assigned or transferred to a third party nor may any third party be otherwise granted any a legal or equitable interest over an E-Account. 9.5 An E-Account may be subject to upload, payment and withdrawal limits due to security and legal requirements as determined by us from time to time at our sole discretion and we may require that security questions be answered or other activities completed in relation to any upload, payment or withdrawal transaction. We reserve the right in our sole discretion to carry out all and any necessary money laundering, terrorism financing,fraud or other illegal activity checks before processing any E Account upload, payment or withdrawal transaction and we will not be liable to you for any loss suffered by you as a result of any delay while these checks are being completed to our satisfaction 9.6 It is your responsibility to ensure that the E-Account is only accessed by you and that you keep your login details, password or other security features associated with your access safe and secure. If you have any knowledge or any suspicion that any of these security features have been stolen, misappropriated, used without authorisation or otherwise compromised you must contact us without delay. Any undue delay in notifying us may affect the security of your E-Account and /or result in you being liable for any losses as a result. 9.7 We may suspend your E-Account and/or access to the Cambridge Services on reasonable grounds relating to the unauthorised or fraudulent or illegal or disruptive use or security of the E-Account or the Services or in order to comply with Applicable Laws and for such period as we shall reasonably determine to be necessary. 9.8 We will notify you of any suspension and its reasons for doing this (if possible in advance) unless notifying you would be unlawful. 9.9 You must have any equipment or telecommunications lines and links that may be necessary for you to use the Services and you acknowledge that certain software and equipment used by you may not be capable of supporting certain features of the Services. 9.10 By opening an E-Account and whenever you use the Services you are confirming to us that you have (i) regular access to the Website and email; (ii) the ability to store information sent or made available to you by email and other electronic means by us including the Website in a Durable Medium by printing out or otherwise retaining for future reference all electronic communications sent and information made available by us (via the Website or by email or phone); and (iii) the ability to access any such communications and information at all times. 9.11 If you require statements for an E-Account or wish to close an E-Account please contact us. 9.12 Cambridge reserves the right, in its sole discretion to impose ‘acceptable use’ terms in relation to the operation of an E-Account and the provision of any payment service including the prohibition of certain categories of payment transactions. The E-Account must not be used for any illegal purposes including without limitation fraud and money laundering. We will report any suspicious activity to the relevant law enforcement agency and If any transaction is conducted or attempt to be conducted in violation of the prohibitions contained in this section Cambridge reserves the right to reverse the transaction, and/ or close or suspend an E-Account and/or report the transaction to the relevant law enforcement agency and/or claim damages from you
