In order to protect your interests, the amount of funds available at your TNG Mastercard shall link your TNG Wallet Account. Your Balance available shall be equivalent to the funds available at your TNG Wallet Account, unless a limit has been set at your TNG Mastercard, subject to the value-added services as provided by TNG from time to time. We promise that (i) we will not create (or cause to be created) any lien, charge, pledge, encumbrances, equity or any type of third party right on your fund; and (ii) we will properly keep and back up the account details and records associated with your TNG Mastercard. You acknowledge and agree that you will only be able to access the information about your remaining funds in your Card Account or your TNG Wallet Account. The Card Account is operated and maintained under our management system and linked up with your TNG Wallet Account.
There is no minimum Balance requirement in your Card Account, but we may deactivate or cancel your TNG Mastercard at any time regardless of your Balance. Your Card Account is not a deposit account and no interest will be paid on the Balance. The default currency denomination of your Balance will be in Hong Kong dollars.
The TNG Mastercard is and will remain our property and TNG shall have sole discretion to manage, activate or deactivate your Card Account. However, you will be solely and completely responsible for the possession, use and control of the TNG Mastercard (for the avoidance of doubt, including any supplementary card(s)). You must surrender the TNG Mastercard to us immediately upon request. You must not use the TNG Mastercard for any illegal transactions or purposes. You are not allowed to authorize another person to use your own TNG Mastercard but if you do so, you agree, to the extent permitted by law, that you will be liable for all transactions arising from the use of your TNG Mastercard by such person.
3.Requirements / Eligibility
You must be at least eighteen (18) years of age to apply for a TNG Mastercard. You must hold a TNG Wallet Account and agree to link such account with your TNG Mastercard. We will require evidence of your identity, such as an identity card bearing your photograph or a valid international passport incorporating photographic evidence of your identity, issued by a competent governmental authority.
Each cardholder shall be eligible to hold one (1) physical TNG Mastercard and one (1) equivalent virtual card under the same Card Account. Any such card is personal, and shall not be transferrable nor sub-licensable.
The cardholder may apply for supplementary card(s) for any of his or her children under eighteen (18) years of age. We will require evidence of the relationship and child’s identity bearing the child’s photograph such as a birth certificate, a valid identity card or international passport, issued by a competent governmental authority.
TNG may process or accept any application for a TNG Mastercard or its supplementary card in its sole and absolute discretion.
We send any supplementary card(s) and all communications relating to such card(s) to you. Any communication we give to you or any supplementary card holder(s) is taken to be given to all of you. You and each supplementary card holder(s) agree to be bound by the instructions that any of you give us.
4.Limits, Fees and Charges
Subject to the services as provided by TNG from time to time, the TNG Mastercard may be subject to certain limits for spending to be set on a per transaction, daily, weekly, monthly and/or yearly basis. The value-added services if applicable, may be subject to separate terms and conditions, as well as additional fees or charges.
We will not be liable for any losses or expenses incurred by you arising from any spending limits, whether imposed by us or by yourself under any value-added services. You are advised to familiarize yourself with any spending limits imposed by us from time to time and any spending limits pre-set by you under any value-added services in order to avoid inability to use your TNG Mastercard.
5.TNG Mastercard Transactions
To use the TNG Mastercard, simply present the TNG Mastercard at the time of payment, and input your pin and/or password, or sign the receipt (if necessary) with the same signature you used in signing on the TNG Mastercard. You may wish to retain the receipt as a record of the transaction. You must ensure that there is a positive Balance in your TNG Mastercard and TNG Wallet Account before using such TNG Mastercard for any transaction. As you use the TNG Mastercard, your TNG Mastercard’s Balance will be reduced by the full amount of each purchase including taxes, charges and other fees, if any. The TNG Mastercard can be used to pay the full amount of the purchase and applicable taxes, so long as the Balance remaining on the TNG Mastercard linking your TNG Wallet Account is sufficient. You may not make a purchase in an amount that exceeds the remaining Balance.
You agree that we are not required to verify the signature on any sales receipts prepared in connection with a transaction carried out on your TNG Mastercard and we may authorize and process a transaction even if there is no signature, or the signature on the sales receipt is different from the signature on your TNG Mastercard. You do not have any right to stop the payment of any transaction you conduct with the TNG Mastercard. Subject to the limit set on your TNG Mastercard, you may make pre-authorized regular payments through the use of your TNG Mastercard. We are not liable to you for declining authorization for any particular transaction, regardless of any cause. Subject to the value-added services as provided by TNG from time to time, you may be able to set the categories or types of merchants, or its country or domicile, for settling payment by your TNG Mastercard. The value-added services may be subject to separate terms and conditions.
No cash withdrawal shall be made through your TNG Mastercard.
Online transactions must be authorized by you by entering your TNG Mastercard details as requested by the retailer. This usually means providing your TNG Mastercard number, the name on the TNG Mastercard, the expiration date of the TNG Mastercard and in many cases the CVC2 number printed on the back of it. You cannot withdraw your authorization after having completed your transaction.
For all transactions involving currency conversion, the exchange rate refers to the rate applied by Mastercard on the date of conversion. However, if a foreign transaction is refunded to your TNG Mastercard, the Mastercard conversion rate used to convert your refund to Hong Kong dollars for your TNG Mastercard is the rate that we pay to Mastercard minus any possible foreign exchange service charge of the refund. Further, the rate that we pay to Mastercard may not be the same rate as that of the date the transaction was refunded. For these reasons, the amount that is credited to your TNG Mastercard for a refund of a foreign currency transaction will, in most cases, be less than the amount that was originally charged to your TNG Mastercard for that transaction.
You acknowledge that you may have dispute rights pursuant to card association and network rules or otherwise, and we have the rights (but not the obligation) to pass any applicable chargebacks to you under the use of the TNG Mastercard.
Both Mastercard and we have the rights and authority to charge you a reasonable handling fee during the investigation and chargeback process. Please note, Mastercard will only charge the cardholder of the TNG Mastercard through us.
