Mobile topup services
HomeTopup provides you with the possibility to transfer pre-paid airtime value to a pre-paid mobile phone subscription account by use of your Account accessed through its website (“HomeTopUp”), on the terms and conditions set forth in these Terms of Service.
By accessing the website, you will be able to purchase Mobile Top Up for transfer, in such denominations and amounts as are displayed in the user interface (from time to time), for transfer to end users with those mobile network operators and within such countries as are displayed (from time to time) in the website. There may also be maximum thresholds for the aggregate value that you may transfer at any given point in time. All values available for Mobile Top Up are stated VAT inclusive (if applicable) and inclusive of HomeTopup service charges.
The value that you purchase for Mobile Top Up will be debited from your prepaid account that you hold with HomeTopup.
You are responsible for all transactions performed by use of your HomeTopup prepaid account. By completing the Mobile Top Up as set forth in the website, you authorize us to transfer the value as ordered by you, to the mobile telephone number that you have identified. HomeTopup will upon receipt of your order for Mobile Top Up make a reservation corresponding to the cost of the value and the transfer service to your Home Topup prepaid account, and will upon successful completion of the Mobile Top Up, debit such cost to your HomeTopup prepaid account.
Once the Mobile Top Up has been successfully completed, which will be notified to you, the value transferred cannot be refunded or removed from the receiving MSISDN (Mobile Subscriber Integrated Services Digital Network). Please note that HomeTopup does not assume any liability should you send Mobile Top Up to the wrong telephone number.
Should a Mobile Top Up transaction not be successfully completed, HomeTopup will notify you. A transaction can either (i) fail, meaning that the reservation of the charges to your account will be released, or (ii) be pending, meaning that the transaction is in progress (which may continue up to 24 hours) during which time the charge will remain reserved against your account, but not yet been debited (and no Mobile Top Up value will reach the receiver MSISDN).
Should it come to your knowledge that a Mobile Top Up initiated by you, the cost for which has been charged to your prepaid account, has not reached the MSISDN identified by you, you shall notify HomeTopup within reasonable time and provide HomeTopup with underlying documentation identifying the MSISDN to which your ordered the Mobile Top Up. HomeTopup reserves the right to charge you any costs which HomeTopup may have for crediting value to your account, if Mobile Top Up has not been successfully completed and such failure has been caused by you.
Payment, rates and accounts
In order to purchase credits for the airtime value for transfer by use of the Mobile Top Up Services or to charge your Account you shall buy Airtime credit available on HomeTopup website or on the mobile device if applicable, by use of such payment methods as set forth on the Site or in the App (if applicable), e.g. by bank to bank transfer. Payments are either made bank to bank transfer manually by you or through the automatic recharge function (if available) activated by you. The automatic recharge function (if available) means that when your Account balance is below a certain level, your Account will be automatically recharged with a certain pre-selected amount.
HomeTopup has the right to charge you for the use of the Mobile Top Up Service. Such service fee will not be communicated to you as a separate item, but will be included in the amount that will be debited your prepaid account or credit card.
Rates and VAT
The rates are published on the Site. HomeTopup reserves the right to change the rates at any time without notice. If you do not wish to accept such adjustment of rates, you are entitled to terminate the Account with effect from the date on which the adjustment of rates would become effective. You agree that by continuing to use HomeTopup Services, following the adjustments of the rates, you accept such adjustments.
Unless stated otherwise, all rates and charges for the Services shall be stated in Pound Sterling (GBP) or Euro (EUR) and shall be exclusive of value added taxes (VAT) or any other applicable taxes or fees.
You may request for a refund by submitting a written request in English to HomeTopup customer services at [email protected]. Refund requests carried out through other means shall not be eligible for the refund. For the avoidance of doubt, no refunds shall be given for services paid or credit acquired through Airtime prepaid credit vouchers, gift tokens or similar. HomeTopup reserves the right to deny repetitive refund requests. Any abuse by you of the terms relating to refunds hereunder shall lead to the termination of this Agreement. All payments older than 90 days are non-refundable.
Account and receipt
HomeTopup may provide an account history on the Site that includes information about your Account activity, payments during a limited period, and your current Account balance (“Account History”), which may change from time to time, and an e-mail receipt upon pre-payment for the Services. The Account History is the only statement of your Account that HomeTopup will provide to you.
IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO PRINT OR SAVE A COPY OF YOUR ACCOUNT HISTORY SHEET AND YOUR RECEIPT AND TO RETAIN COPIES FOR YOUR RECORDS.
HomeTopup will use commercially reasonable efforts to correct any technical failures relating to the Account History within a reasonable time. However, your inability to view the Account History does not extend, or relieve you of, your obligation to pay any amounts owing to HomeTopup.
If you believe that HomeTopup has charged your Account in error, you must submit a written request in English for refund by contacting HomeTopup customer services via [email protected] within 30 days after the date the error first appears on your Account History or within 60 days after the error occurred, whichever is earlier.
Expiration of credits
A credit balance for the Services on the Account expires 12 months after the last activity of the Services. Credit balances that are not used within the said 12 months day period will be lost.
TERMINATION AND CANCELLATION
If you breach any of the Terms of Service, or if you are subject to any proceeding under bankruptcy, insolvency, liquidation or similar laws, you will be in default and we may, without notice to you, suspend the Services and/or terminate the Terms of Service.
Cancellation of your Services
You may terminate the Terms of Service and cancel the Services at any time. Unless otherwise stated herein, all Services will be cancelled from the Site or within 5 days of receipt of written notice from you to [email protected].
