Version 1.4 — 7th Oct 2019
What is Kash
These legal terms (Nigerian law applies and disputes will be settled by Nigerian courts) are between you and Kash AI Limited (Kash/us/we) and you agree to them by using the Kash app.
You should read this document along with our Data Privacy Notice.
How to contact us
You can contact us through the Kash app.
Email us at [firstname.lastname@example.org].
Phone us on 0806 411 7751.
Or send a letter to: Kash, 29 Mambilla Street, Off Aso Drive, FCT, Abuja, Nigeria.
How we'll contact you
We'll contact you in Englishand Emoji via the Kash app, or through your email, phone or home address. Please let us know if any of these change!
We also send you instant notifications when you spend or receive money.
You need enough money in your account to make payments. But some transactions that would take your balance below zero may still go through. If that happens, we'll let you know the amount you'll need to repay before the end of the day and you’ll need to pay us back as soon as possible.
We may block your payments if:
- your instructions are unclear
- we suspect criminal activity on your account
- we're not legally allowed to make the transfer
- it goes over your payment limits (you'll find these in your app; they'll change over time).
If we block a payment, we'll let you know as soon as possible, using one of our usual channels (see ‘How we’ll contact you’ above).
You can find information on all your transactions in your feed and your monthly bank statements in the app.
Using your card abroad
Your Kash card should work anywhere around the world that accepts Mastercard, but for some ATMs you may need to turn on the 'magnetic stripe' rather than using chip and PIN. You can do this in the app.
When you use your card abroad to make a payment in a foreign currency, we use Mastercard's exchange rate with a 0.0% fee. You can find the Mastercard exchange rate here.
You can withdraw up to NGN100,000 from ATMs abroad in any rolling 30-day period without any fees. After that, we charge 3% of the total amount you withdraw above NGN100,000. That’s because cash withdrawals in a foreign currency outside Nigeria cost us money.
Your money is protected by the NDIC
Any money in your Kash account is fully protected up to £85,000 by the National Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC).
16–17 year olds
If you're under 18 we won't charge any fees if you go overdrawn. You also won't be able to make some payments for things like gambling.
You agree to us using your information
By accepting these terms, you agree to us using your information to make and receive payments on your account. If you’re no longer happy for us to use your information, we’ll have to close your account. But we may keep your personal data and use it where we have lawful grounds to do so. For example, any records we need to keep for regulatory reasons (see our Data Privacy Notice).
Charges outside our control
You may have to pay other costs, taxes or charges in relation to your Kash account, which are outside of our control and not charged by us. For example other banks may charge you for sending money to your Kash account.
When we offer rewards
Sometimes we'll offer rewards for things like inviting friends to join Kash or CASS switching. We can withdraw or change these offers any time, without letting you know in advance. You’ll only get financial awards once per action (for example you’ll only get a bonus for CASS switching once, or once per friend you invite).You might have to pay income tax on money you get as part of these rewards. Contact FIRS if you're unsure.
If something goes wrong
Please keep your phone, card and PIN safe at all times. If we discover any security issues affecting your account, we’ll contact you as soon as possible in the most secure way, using one of our usual channels (see ‘How we’ll contact you’ above).
If you lose your card or see transactions in the app that look wrong, freeze your card and tell us as soon as possible.
We’ll usually refund you any money if:
- it was taken after you froze your card in the app, unless you acted fraudulently or were very negligent
- someone makes a payment without your permission
We’ll also refund any money you lost due to our mistakes or inaccuracies with your payments. We can help by speaking to other banks to make sure they treat any payment we send late as if it was sent it on time.
But you won't be able to claim back money you've lost if:
- you gave us incorrect instructions or we can prove that the bank we sent your payment to received it (although we'll still try to help you recover your money)
- you purposefully didn’t keep your phone, card or PIN safe, or you were very negligent in not keeping them safe or if your account is in overdraft, you gave them to someone else
- you acted fraudulently
If someone pays money into your account by mistake you give us permission to return it.
If you’ve used your card to make a payment which didn’t specify the exact amount (for example when hiring a car), and the final amount is higher than you could reasonably have expected, we’ll give you a refund. You’ll need to tell us within 8 weeks of the transaction, and give us any information we reasonably ask for to investigate.
Errors with Direct Debits are covered by the Direct Debit guarantee scheme.
Closing your account
You can cancel your account within the first 14 days of opening it, or close it at any other time. If you’d like to, please get in touch with us. You'll need to repay any money you owe us before we can close your account. Once we've closed it, your card won't work and you won't be able to access your account.
We can close your account by giving you at least two months' notice. We may close your account or stop you using your card and app immediately if we believe you've:
- broken the terms of this agreement
- put us in a position where we might break the law
- broken the law or attempted to break the law
- given us false information at any time
- been abusive to anyone at Kash or a member of our community
How to make a complaint
If you have a complaint, please contact us and we'll do our best to fix the problem.
If you're still not happy, you can refer your complaint to the Consumer Protection Council. For more details you can visit their website at www.fccpc.gov.ng.
Making changes to this agreement 📝
This agreement will always be available in the app and on our website.
We can make changes to it for any reason. If we make changes to it that are clearly in your favour, we'll tell you once we've made them. Otherwise we'll give you two months' notice in the most secure way, using one of our usual channels (see ‘How we’ll contact you’ above).
If you don't agree to these changes, you can let us know and we'll close your account. We'll transfer any money in the account to another account of yours, and you'll need to pay back any money you owe us. If we don't hear from you, we’ll assume that you’re happy with the changes we’ve made.
