The BankiFi Go Get Paid App Services – Key Terms.
These Go Get Paid Terms and Conditions (the “Terms”) set out the terms that apply to your access to the Go Get Paid app and use of Our Services, including the Go Get Paid websites and Go Get Paid platform operated by us which support the Request to Pay service and access to the Account Information Services as provided by Moneyhub Technology and BankiFi Technology Ltd (together “Our Service” or “Our Services”).
You should read these Terms as once you have registered for the Go Get Paid app, they will form an agreement between you and us which you will be bound by. You can access additional copies of these Terms through our website or by contacting us at email@example.com . Our Services are intended to be used by business customers.
We have used certain words and phrases in the Terms which have the meanings ascribed to them below. When we say:
“BankiFi” or “we” or “us” or “our”” we mean BankiFi Technology Limited. Our registered company number is 10696778. Our registered office is Centurion House, 129 Deansgate, Manchester, M3 3WR and we can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
“you” or “your”, we mean the person who has registered an account to use the Go Get Paid app.
“our partner”, we mean The Co-operative Bank and Moneyhub.
“payer”, we mean the person who you have asked to make a payment to you.
“Requests to Pay” we mean the messages that are sent between a Payee and a Payer in Our Services.
Our Services are made up of a number of elements, which may (from time to time) include: the Go Get Paid websites and the Go Get Paid platform. These Terms provide an overarching framework of contractual terms that apply to your use of Our Services. Our Services enable you to request a payment from a payer (a “RtP”). The payer does not need to register to use the Go Get Paid app and is not bound by these Terms.
The Moneyhub Services: When you register for the Go Get Paid app, we will use Open Banking to access information from payment accounts which you hold with a bank or building society to help verify your identity and carry out anti money laundering checks. The provision of information from your payment accounts is an Account Information Service, which is regulated under the Payment Services Regulations 2017. When you request a payment from a customer (the “payer”), the payer may use Open Banking to initiate payment to you from an account they hold with a bank or building society. Making a payment from a payment account using Open Banking is a Payment Initiation Service, which is regulated under the Payment Services Regulations 2017.
We are acting as the registered agent of Moneyhub Financial Technology Ltd (“Moneyhub”), which provides the regulated Account Information and Payment Initiation Services (together the “Moneyhub Services”).
Moneyhub Financial Technology Ltd is a limited company registered in England and Wales (company reg. no. 06909772) with its registered office and principal trading address at Regus House, 1 Friary, Temple Quay, Bristol, BS1 6EA; VAT number GB343601232. Moneyhub is registered with the Information Commissioner (No. Z2507137). Moneyhub is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority under the Payment Services Regulations 2017 (reference number: 809360) for the provision of payment services.
Disputes. If there is a dispute with a payment this needs to be settled directly between the Payee and the Payer, not through Our Service. We take no responsibility for the validity of the payment request as this is initiated and controlled entirely by the Payee, and a Payer can decline to make payment at any time.
Your use of Moneyhub by registering for the Go Get Paid app we will deem that you have agreed to Moneyhub’s conditions of use. If a payer wants to use the Moneyhub Services to make a payment to you, they will also be required to agree to Moneyhub’s conditions of use as a condition of using the Moneyhub Services.
1. Registering to use Our Service (as a Payee)
1.2 We respect your personal information and understand its importance to you and therefore abide by all the relevant data protection legislation. We only use your personal data in accordance with our privacy notice
1.3 When you register you will need to consent to Moneyhub having the right to access your bank account(s), so that they can monitor when outstanding payments have been paid into your account. To do this Moneyhub will use the standard, regulated, Open Banking consent process, and you simply need to log in to your online banking to give consent.
1.4 You can remove this consent at any time through your own online banking service.
2. Sending RtPs
2.1 Once you have registered you can start to send RtPs to your Payers / customers through the Go Get Paid mobile app. We may limit the amount and/or volume of payments you can request at any time if we reasonably consider there is a risk of fraud. When an RtP is sent it remains open (“Open Requests”) until it is either paid or declined by the Payer, or it is cancelled by you. You can cancel any RtPs that have not been paid (“Cancelled Requests”). When a Payer pays an RtP we will show that it has been paid (“Paid Requests”). We show you the history of Open Requests, Paid Requests and Cancelled Requests in the Go Get Paid App.
2.2 We will let you know if a Payer rejects an RtP. We will also allow the Payer to block any future requests from you, for example if the Payer decides you are sending too many reminders to pay an Open Request.
3. Linking Accounting Software
3.1 We provide you with the ability to link your accounting software (if you use Sage, Xero or QuickBooks) during registration or at any time through the Go Get Paid app. You can do so by logging into your accounting software through our App and then by following the in-App instructions. We never need to know any of your account credentials for your accounting software.
4. Leaving Our Service
4.1 You can leave Our Service at any time in a number of ways. You can opt out via a feature in the app, or you can decline to pay the service charge. If you elect to leave during any free period, we will not de-activate your account until the end of the free period. If you leave after the free period has ended, then your account will remain open until the end of the then current 30-day billing cycle. Once your current billing cycle has expired certain features within the app will become unavailable. You will not be able to send any new RtPs or resend any Open Requests. RtPs which are open can still be paid, and we will continue to mark the items as Paid in any linked accounting package.
4.2 If you do leave Our Service then you must separately, via your own bank, revoke any consent given to Moneyhub to access your bank account. We cannot revoke this consent on your behalf.
5. Communicating with You
5.1 We may communicate with you in order to operate or improve Our Service. When we introduce new features to Our Service we will let you know.
5.2 When we communicate, we may contact you using the email address you gave us when you registered. We may also send you notifications by SMS or within the Go Get Paid app. We will communicate with you in the English language.

If a Force Majeure Event occurs, we apologise for any inconvenience it may cause and you can be assured that we will take all reasonable actions to get Our Service back up and running quickly. We are not liable for the non-provision of Our Service or any losses, howsoever arising, as a result of a Force Majeure Event.

10.7 We use reasonable endeavours to ensure that Our Service does not contain or spread any viruses or other malicious code. However, we recommend that you regularly check your devices for the presence of viruses and other malicious code. We exclude to the fullest extent permitted by applicable laws all liability in connection with any damage or loss caused by computer viruses or other malicious code originating or contracted from Our Service.
10.8 You should note that the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure, and we do everything we can to keep all the information we store safe and secure.

We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on our platform and we exclude to the fullest extent permitted by law all liability in connection with the circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on our platform.

If you fail to notify us of a problem in accordance with this Term, we will not be held liable for that problem. In the case of a valid claim, we will follow our complaints policy. We will have no further liability to you in respect of that claim. If there is an issue with the payment transaction, then the Moneyhub service terms will apply.
10.11 If something has gone wrong, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can do our best to help.

loss of Go Get Paid data, sales or business, agreements or contracts, anticipated savings, profits, opportunity, goodwill or reputation, or for any business interruption;
loss or corruption of data; or
indirect, special or consequential loss, damage, costs or other claims, howsoever caused or arising, including where arising directly or indirectly from any failure or delay in performing any obligation under these terms caused by matters beyond our reasonable control. Except as expressly stated elsewhere in these terms, all representations, warranties, conditions and other terms, whether express or implied (by common law or statute) are hereby excluded, except in the case of fraud, death and personal injury, or where such exclusion is not permitted by law.
10.14 Our aggregate liability to you, arising out of or in connection with providing you with Our Service under these Terms, shall be limited to losses that are reasonably foreseeable and which arose because of our breach of these terms or negligence (except in relation to death, personal injury, or fraudulent misrepresentation which we do not limit), and will not exceed the amount you have paid us in the past twelve months.
10.15 All views of your payments, accounts and RtP (sent and received) and all the capability within Our Service are to help you manage your own payments and finances.

10.17 We are not liable for any payments made by a Payer through Our Service that are not due to be paid. Any dispute between a Payee and a Payer must be settled directly between the Payee and Payer and not through Our Service.
