5. Use of Services and Cost


To use the Services, you agree to comply with and undertake the provisions set out in this Section 5.

The Services shall only be provided to you by Ding in respect of the mobile phone operators and service providers available on the Applications (which are subject to change and availability).

You will be required to input certain information (e.g. a mobile phone number) in respect of the Services on the Applications. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have correctly inputted the information. In the case of Top-up, you will then be required to select the amount of Top-up that you wish to be delivered.

The total amount (inclusive of all applicable taxes and charges) that you will be required to pay will be displayed clearly on the Applications before you are asked to confirm your transaction and proceeding with the transaction at this point is entirely optional. In the case of Top-up, the cost will vary depending on the amount of Top-up that you wish to send according to the denominations displayed on the Applications. Where an exchange rate has been applied the actual amount that you are charged may vary as our payment processors’ FX rate may be slightly different at the time of settlement. You may also be charged a secure online processing fee in respect of any Service you purchase through the Applications. If you choose to send an optional SMS to the recipient of Top-up, an additional message fee for this may apply.

A Service is sent by Ding via the relevant third party (e.g. mobile operator) upon successful payment by you. Occasionally, there may be a short delay before the relevant third party delivers the Service. Where contact details have been provided, we will send you a confirmation email or SMS which contains details of the Services sent as soon as your transaction has been successfully completed. You agree and understand that Ding only acts on your authorisation to send Services and the relevant third party shall be solely liable to you and the recipient of the Services for the provision of Services. In the case of Top-up, once it is sent to the recipient, it can be used immediately and therefore it cannot be refunded or removed. To avoid a Service being sent to the wrong phone or place, Ding asks you to confirm that the recipient details you have entered are correct.

You acknowledge that you will lose the right to cancel the Services once they have been fully performed by Ding. Accordingly, you will have no right to request a refund under the European Union (Consumer Information, Cancellation and Other Rights) Regulations 2013. Please note that the Applications limit the amount and value of Services that can be purchased over a specific time period (e.g. daily, weekly, monthly). Other limits and exclusions related to the use of the Applications may be applicable from time to time (which you will be notified of).

6. Your Instructions


You shall ensure that all instructions provided to Ding through the Applications are accurate, complete and true. In particular, the mobile phone number to which any Top-up is to be credited must be correctly identified. You shall ensure that the instructions which are relayed back for confirmation are correct, accurate and true. All confirmed instructions are final and binding upon you. Ding and/or its service providers shall bear no liability or consequences related to the provision of incorrect, inaccurate or false information by you. You are solely responsible for any consequences related to the failure to provide correct, accurate and true information or the failure to correct such inaccurate information prior to final confirmation.

7. Transactions Using Your Chosen Payment Method


You may purchase the Services using Visa, MasterCard, Diners, Discover or PayPal or any future payment methods available on the Applications. Any credit card, debit card or other payment method which may be used on the Applications must have a valid billing address and valid issuing bank or other payment services provider.

Upon receipt of a proper and complete request from you for Services, Ding will charge the payment method provided by you and will forward an electronic request to the relevant third party provider (e.g. mobile operator) to provide the Services in the amount transferred, for the benefit of the recipient nominated by you.

You authorize Ding to act upon any instruction to charge the payment method provided by you through the Applications which has been transmitted using your password and/or any other authentication/identity verification process which you may require to be used in connection with the Applications. Ding is not required to undertake any additional authentication or identity verification measures other than those Ding deems appropriate and sufficient to protect the security and maintain the proper use of the Applications. All charges concluded post successful authentication or identity verification are your sole responsibility and liability.

Ding shall accept liability for the non-execution or defective execution of Services purchased through the Applications, subject to your adherence with this Agreement, the proper use of the Applications as instructed by Ding, and the absence of any misrepresentation, fraud or negligence by you. Such liability, if incurred, shall be strictly limited to the amount of the unexecuted or defective Services.

8. Promotions


From time to time, Ding or partner mobile operators will run promotions on the Applications. These promotions will be subject to additional terms and conditions and such terms and conditions (including the closing date for any promotion) will be displayed clearly on the Applications.  Ding is not responsible for promotions run by partner mobile operators and you must make your own inquiries with the relevant mobile operator directly before availing of, and relying on the terms and conditions of, any such promotion.

9. Your Obligations
