4. Your Zyla Account
4.1 Your Zyla Account is a multi-currency digital wallet which enables you to send and receive electronic or cashless payments. For more information, please view the FAQ section at www.zyla.com.
4.2 Subject to any payment upload and/or withdrawal limits or other restrictions imposed by AUS at its sole discretion from time to time, you can withdraw and add funds to your Zyla Account at any time. Unless otherwise required by applicable Law, we will provide you with reasonable notice prior to imposing any limits or other restrictions on your Zyla Account.
4.3 Any withdrawal must be to an account in the same name as the Client of the Zyla Account, or where permitted by us, that of your legal representative, director, or ultimate beneficial owner, subject to applicable Laws and AUS’s policies and procedures.
4.4 You may add or remove a beneficiary at any time prior to instructing a payment to the beneficiary. More details on making payments are in “Sending Payments Using your Zyla Account” below.
4.5 AUS may suspend access to, disable or place limits on your Zyla Account without prior notice to you should we have reason to believe that your Zyla Account is being used in, has been used in or has been associated with, any actual or suspected fraud or attempted fraud, money laundering or terrorist financing, bribery or corruption or other illegal activity, or if AUS believes your Zyla Account has been compromised or used in any way which is contrary to this Agreement (including but not limited to if we reasonably suspect that you are in breach of this Agreement) or for the prevention of financial crime. In the event that we suspend your account, we will contact you using the contact details, including but not limited to telephone and/or email, that we have for you and which AUS reasonably believes to be secure, unless we determine that we are prohibited from doing so pursuant to applicable Laws.
4.6 When you upload or receive funds to your Zyla Account, we will issue you with stored value for that same amount. AUS combines your Zyla Account funds with the Zyla Account funds of other Zyla Account users and may invest those funds in liquid investments in accordance with applicable Laws. These pooled amounts are held apart from AUS’s corporate funds, and AUS will neither use these funds for its operating expenses or any other corporate purposes nor will it voluntarily make these funds available to its creditors in the event of bankruptcy. You may elect to exchange currencies in your Zyla Account by purchasing the desired amount of a currency using available funds in your Zyla Account. When you instruct AUS to convert one currency into another, the currency being sold becomes due and payable to AUS on the date confirmed in your Trade Confirmation Notice. Please refer to clause 9 for additional information regarding foreign exchange rates and fees for conversion services.
4.7 The Zyla Account is not a bank account or deposit account nor do the Zyla Account Services offer the features and benefits of a traditional bank account or deposit account. AUS is not a bank or other chartered depository institution. Funds held by AUS in connection with the processing of transactions are not deposit obligations and are not insured for the benefit of the user by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other Authority.
4.8 We do not pay interest on funds held by us for you and we may retain, for our own benefit, any interest which accrues from funds held in any Ant Group bank accounts utilized to offer you the Zyla Account Services.
4.9 AUS may utilize its Affiliates as well as non-affiliates as Payment Service Providers to facilitate loads to your Zyla Account from non-U.S. financial institutions and to facilitate the collection and disbursement of payments made outside the U.S.
4.10 We are required to identify and verify funds received from third parties on your behalf and such third parties will need to be verified in accordance with our due diligence procedures before we are able to release your funds or make any onward payment.
4.11 Whenever you upload or receive funds to your Zyla Account, you should always ensure that you are using the most up to date account details provided to you by us. In the event that you instruct your funds to an incorrect account managed by AUS, you agree that AUS has permission to facilitate the necessary transfers in order to move the funds to the correct account without further notice to you.
4.12 You acknowledge and agree that:
a) we do not verify nor guarantee the accuracy, authenticity, reliability, appropriateness, or completeness of any and all information and data made available to you through the Zyla Account Services (including but not limited to, where applicable, foreign exchange rates);
b) any information or data obtained by you from us through the Zyla Account Services shall be used by you at your own risk and independent judgment, and all risk associated with the use of, or reliance on, any of such information and data accessed through the Zyla Account Services rests with you; and
c) we shall not be responsible or liable in any way, directly or indirectly, for any losses, damages or consequences of any kind arising from or in connection with your use of or reliance on, any information and data accessed through the Zyla Account Services
5. How to Upload funds to your Zyla Account
5.1 If you would like to upload funds you will need to log into your Zyla Account and follow upload instructions. Unless otherwise permitted by us, the account from which you upload funds must be registered in the same name as your Zyla Account. AUS may request that you answer security questions when uploading funds to your Zyla Account.
5.2 When you open a Zyla Account, you will be provided with a unique account number for each currency denominated wallet you select.
5.3 You should not, under any circumstances, deposit physical cash (coins and notes), checks or banker’s drafts into your Zyla Account.
6. Sending Payments using your Zyla Account
6.1 You can instruct a payment by logging into your Zyla Account and by doing so you are requesting AUS to provide you with payment services and each payment Instruction will be an individual contract between you and us.
6.2 In order to instruct a payment using your Zyla Account you will need to have enough funds available in your Zyla Account on your Designated Payment Date in the corresponding currency denomination taking into account any fees or costs associated with the transaction. If your Designated Payment Date is a date in the future, it is your responsibility to ensure that sufficient funds are in your Zyla Account to execute your Instruction on your Designated Payment Date (for the avoidance of doubt, any such transaction shall not be considered a forward trade transaction, and any Instruction for such a transaction will be executed by AUS based on the available spot exchange rate at the time of the execution). Failing to have sufficient funds in the required currency on your Designated Payment Date will result in AUS not executing your payment, in which case you shall be solely liable for any fees or penalties that may be incurred by you in connection with the non-payment. AUS will execute your payment after it has made deduction of any amounts due to AUS.
6.3 You will also need to provide us with the beneficiary account details and it is your responsibility to ensure the beneficiary account details are accurate and complete. We may require you to confirm by electronic means any beneficiary account details provided by you. The beneficiary account details provided by you are the details that AUS will use when executing your payment(s). Providing AUS with accurate information shall be solely your responsibility. AUS will not be liable to you if (a) the payment is executed late as a result of you providing incomplete beneficiary account details or your late response in confirming electronically any Instructions if requested to do so, or (b) if your funds are received by the wrong beneficiary as a result of you providing incorrect beneficiary account details. However, we will use reasonable efforts to assist you in recovery of your lost funds and we reserve the right to charge you a fee for our reasonable costs in doing so.
6.4 You may attempt to cancel or alter an Instruction by contacting us at any time before the Instruction has been acted on by us, except with respect to Foreign Exchange Transactions. Any Instruction for a transaction that you schedule for a future date will be executed by AUS based on the available spot exchange rate at the time of the execution.
6.5 If you wish to recall a payment which was instructed by AUS in accordance with your Instruction, we will make reasonable efforts to assist you with a recall; however, we will not be liable in the event that a recall is not possible or successful. Similarly, if a payment has been credited to a beneficiary’s account, we can usually only recall the payment with the consent of the beneficiary account holder. We reserve the right to charge an administration fee representing our administration costs in attempting to recall each payment in addition to any direct costs incurred by AUS. We will not be liable for any delays, charges or losses incurred due to the cancellation or recall of a payment and you agree to indemnify us for any charges or fees incurred by us assisting you in the attempted or actual recall of any payment and against any claims arising as a result of this recall.
6.6 AUS may refuse your Instruction to make a payment if you have not satisfied your obligations under this Agreement (including but not limited to a failure by you to supply accurate and complete payment instructions for the beneficiary of the payment) or if we believe the payment to be unlawful or in violation of our Compliance Obligations. AUS will not be liable to you if we delay or refuse to carry out a transaction. In these circumstances, we shall promptly notify you, stating wherever possible the reasons for our refusal, and the procedure for rectifying any payment detail errors that led to the refusal but we reserve the right to charge you a fee to cover our reasonable costs for doing this. We are not obliged to notify you of our refusal to execute the proposed transaction where we believe that such a notification would be unlawful.
6.7 In general, the maximum execution time for your payment to be received by the beneficiary bank for transactions occurring within the U.S. involving U.S. Dollars (“USD”) is one (1) Business Day following the Designated Payment Date. For any other currency, the maximum execution time is four (4) Business Days following the Designated Payment Date.
6.8 Although, in most cases, we are able to specify the execution time needed for the payment to reach the beneficiary bank, we cannot be responsible for any delays caused by:
6.8.1 verification checks such as requests for further information;
6.8.2 sufficient funds not being received; and/or
6.8.3 the beneficiary bank’s (or their correspondent bank’s) processing of the payment;
and so cannot guarantee that the beneficiary’s bank will make the funds available to the beneficiary on the day that it receives payment.
6.9 You consent to us including your full name, address, Zyla Account number and any other details as are required to be sent to the beneficiary’s bank or Payment Service Provider to enable us to comply with our Compliance Obligations and/or to enable the beneficiary’s bank or a Payment Service Provider to comply with all applicable Laws.
6.10 In some circumstances, intermediaries (such as correspondent banks) may be involved in an international payment and they or the beneficiary bank may deduct a charge or fee. You agree to be liable for such charges or fees. Please advise us if a specific amount must arrive in the beneficiary account, as we may be able to calculate any undefined charges in advance. You should ensure that you clearly discuss third party fees and charges with us when providing us with an Instruction to make a payment. We will not under any circumstances be liable for any direct or indirect losses that result from intermediary, correspondent or receiving bank or any other third party fees or charges.
6.11 If you have an agreement with a third party under which you have given that third party your permission to debit your Zyla Account directly, we may accept instructions to debit your Zyla Account directly from that third party.
6.12 When you instruct a payment that is to be paid in a different currency than your sending currency (e.g., a USD → GBP payment), we will first enter into a Foreign Exchange Transaction with you to convert the sending currency (e.g., USD) into your desired receiving currency (e.g., GBP), pursuant to clause 8 below. Then we will execute the payment pursuant to your Instruction. In the event the payment fails or is rejected for any reason, if the now-converted receiving currency is a Zyla available receiving account currency, then we will return your funds to your Zyla Account in the corresponding currency denomination (i.e., a receiving account in the local currency). If you do not already have receiving account in the local currency, we will create one for you which you will be able to see and manage in the Zyla portal.
7. Receiving Payments using your Zyla Account
7.1 When AUS receives cleared funds for you, we will credit your Zyla Account in the corresponding currency denomination. You should regularly check your transaction history and account balances. If your Zyla Account has the functionality to receive funds from third parties, you must provide such payers with the correct unique account number. AUS will not be liable for funds that are delayed or lost due to you providing an incorrect account number. However, we will use reasonable efforts to assist you in recovery of your lost funds and we reserve the right to charge you a fee for our reasonable costs in doing so. Please refer to Schedule 1, Account Restrictions, for further information on receiving funds from third parties.
7.2 If AUS receives funds for you in a currency denomination for which you are not registered, AUS will convert the funds to USD based on the available spot exchange rate and you may be charged a fee representing the costs incurred by AUS as a result. The USD funds will be credited to your USD Zyla Account.
7.3 Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, your Zyla Account can hold balances for you for as long as your Zyla Account is open and you are not in default under this Agreement. Please see clause 14 for details relating to termination of account services.
7.4 AUS’s services to you under this Agreement do not extend to the actual purchase of any products or services using your Zyla Account.
7.5 You should be aware that using the Zyla Account to receive incoming funds does not necessarily mean that these transactions cannot be reversed. AUS reserves the right to reverse a payment in our sole discretion, including but not limited to the case of an erroneous payment, or if the payer or the payer’s bank or Payment Service Provider has reversed (or is reasonably likely to reverse) a payment which was used to fund the payment to you, or should we have reason to believe that your Zyla Account is being used in, has been used in or has been associated with, any fraud or attempted fraud or if we believe your Zyla Account has been compromised or used in any way which is contrary to this Agreement (including but not limited to if we reasonably suspect that you are in breach of this Agreement) or for the prevention of financial crime, or any other reasons related to compliance with applicable Laws (including applicable Laws on anti-money laundering) or AUS’s risk management policies or procedures. To the extent you receive any funds in error, you agree to immediately notify AUS and consent to AUS reversing the transaction where necessary. To the extent you have linked a marketplace to your Zyla Account, the marketplace may also reserve a right to debit or recall funds erroneously sent to your Zyla Account.
7.6 AUS reserves the right to reject or limit payments and funds transfers to you at any time at our sole discretion. Collection capability for your Zyla Account may be subject to restriction, and payments and funds transfers to you may be rejected for any reason, including but not limited to reasons related to compliance with applicable Laws (including applicable Laws on anti-money laundering) or AUS’s risk management policies or procedures. When rejecting a payment or funds transfer to you, AUS will be under no obligation to disclose the reason for the rejection.
8. Initiating Foreign Exchange Transactions Using your Zyla Account
8.1 AUS offers Foreign Exchange Transactions which give you the ability to exchange or convert instantly a specified amount of a given currency into another currency supported by AUS. AUS does not support Foreign Exchange Transactions entered into for investment or speculative purposes such as trying to profit from fluctuations in foreign exchange rates and you must tell us if that is your intention. We may, without further notice to you, decline to deal with you and/or suspend access to or terminate services for your Zyla Account if we have reason to believe that you are using any Foreign Exchange Transaction for investment or speculative purposes.
8.2 Each Foreign Exchange Transaction will be an individual contract between you and us. When you provide us with an Instruction to exchange or convert currency, we will confirm the following terms of the transaction:
8.2.1 the currency amount that you wish to convert;
8.2.2 the currency amount which will be purchased for you;
8.2.3 the exchange rate offered; and
8.2.4 any applicable fees or transmission costs
(collectively, the “Commercial Terms”).
8.3 On your acceptance of the Commercial Terms electronically by logging into your Zyla Account, you become legally bound to perform your obligations under the Foreign Exchange Transaction in accordance with those agreed Commercial Terms and we will provide you a Trade Confirmation Notice itemizing the Commercial Terms for your records.
8.4 You must have sufficient funds in the currency you wish to exchange or convert in your Zyla Account prior to initiating a Foreign Exchange Transaction. You agree that AUS may deduct funds from your Zyla Account to settle your liability on any Foreign Exchange Transaction.
8.5 If you do not hold sufficient funds in your Zyla Account prior to initiating a Foreign Exchange Transaction, you will not be allowed to proceed with the transaction.
8.6 AUS is not obliged to accept an Instruction from you to perform any obligations under a Foreign Exchange Transaction and reserves the right to decline to enter into a specific Foreign Exchange Transaction with you.
8.7 We will enter into all Foreign Exchange Transactions as principal and we shall have no responsibility to any other person other than you.
8.8 If a conversion can be recalled, and you wish to reconvert the bought currency to the original or different currency, the amount returned to you will be calculated according to the exchange rate determined by AUS on the date of the conversion.
9. Foreign Exchange Rate and Transfer Fees
9.1 When you sign up for a Zyla Account, you are provided with information in a Durable Medium relating to any transfer fees and the foreign exchange rate applicable to your transaction that you will incur when using your Zyla Account. We advise that you retain this information for your records. From time to time, AUS may update foreign exchange rates and transfer fees and will notify you of any such change. Any difference between the foreign exchange rate offered to you and the foreign exchange rate received by us will be kept by us. For further information on foreign exchange rate and transfer fees please contact us using any of the contact methods outlined in clause 11 below.
10. Prohibited Transactions
10.1 The Zyla Account is provided as a commercial tool to support businesses only and there are select types of business activities that AUS is not able to support. Furthermore, there are jurisdictions for which AUS is not permitted to offer services.
