Service Terms and Conditions
1. TRIAL SERVICES
1.1 KodyPay is a platform that supports customers' acquisition of goods in retail stores.
1.2 KodyPay is currently operating a limited trial of its services on the University of York ("University") campus (the "Trial"). KodyPay reserves the right to end the Trial at any time without notice.
1.3 During the Trial, KodyPay will allocate bonus credit with a notional value ("Bonus Credit") to users and allow users to apply that Bonus Credit in exchange for goods at the Nisa Co-Op Group Stores ("Nisa Stores") on the University campus ("Transactions"). KodyPay has associated payment arrangements in place with the University in relation to such Transactions.
1.4 In order to participate in the Trial, you must first have been invited by KodyPay via email and you will then need to have downloaded the App and set up an account ("Account"). It is free to open an Account and you can do so by providing the registration details requested.
1.5 Once you have set up your Account, you will be allocated sign-up Bonus Credit worth £15 to use on our behalf at Nisa Stores. We may allocate you extra Bonus Credit from time to time, at our discretion.
1.6 You will only receive Bonus Credit once you have verified your email by clicking the link sent to the email address you register and once you have acknowledged that the Bonus Credit belongs to KodyPay and we have permitted you to use it on our behalf at the Nisa Stores.
1.7 We will allow you to keep the goods you acquire using Bonus Credit unless we inform you otherwise, in our discretion.
1.8 You will not earn any interest on any amounts held in your Account.
2. HOW THE SERVICES WORK
2.1 In order to use the Services, you must register an Account with us. In order to register you must satisfy the following minimum eligibility criteria:
(a) you must be an individual acting on your own behalf, in your own personal capacity (and not as a business or on behalf of a company or other organisation);
(b) your residence must be in a country in the European Union;
(c) you must be at least 18 years of age;
(c) you must be at least 18 years of age;
(d) you must have a University email address which you have access and which you check regularly;
(e) you must not already hold an Account with us and (except where we expressly grant permission otherwise) you must not have previously held an Account with us.
2.2 It is your responsibility to ensure you satisfy the criteria set out in clause 2.1 above before choosing to register with us. By registering, you confirm to us that you meet all of the minimum eligibility criteria.
2.3 In order to make a Transaction you must present your QR code, which is found in the App, for scanning at a Nisa Store.
2.4 Once you have provided consent for a Transaction your consent cannot be withdrawn. Your consent is provided at the time the Transaction is received by us.
2.5 You need sufficient Bonus Credit in your account to make Transactions.
2.6 Although we receive Transactions instantaneously, sometimes a Transaction will not be updated on the App immediately. It may take up to one business day from the time we receive a Transaction for the Transaction to show on the App.
2.7 During the Trial, you may only use your Account for your own personal use and only for authorised and lawful purposes. You may not use your Account in connection with any lottery or gambling activities, to further any fraudulent or other illegal activity or to impersonate another person or in a manner harmful to KodyPay, Nisa Stores, the University, other KodyPay customers or any other third party.
2.8 We do not guarantee the continuous or uninterrupted operability of the KodyPay App or services we provide (since this depends on a number of factors outside our control) and there may be periods of downtime for maintenance and upgrade work.
2.9 If a Nisa Store deems that you are entitled to a refund for whatever reason, then the Nisa Store will notify us and we will allocate your Account with Bonus Credit of the notional refund value.
2.10 You are not able to withdraw any Bonus Credit from your Account except by making valid Transactions in accordance with this Agreement.
3. TRANSACTIONS MADE IN ERROR
3.1 In the event you have made a Transaction via the App in error, please email [email protected] or use the in-App chat function or the feedback page on our website at www.kodypay.com. We will respond as soon as possible.
3.2 If a Transaction occurs without your permission (for example after we have confirmed that your account has been locked), then we will work with the Nisa Stores to discover who authorised the Transaction. If we can establish that the Transaction was not carried out by you, you will not be charged for the Transaction.
4.1 When you set up an Account with us, you will be asked to provide your email address and create a password. Any password you create (including when you update your password from time to time) must be a "strong" one, and not easily guessed (such as, for example, your date of birth). You must keep your customer details secure and confidential at all times. You must not disclose your password to anyone else. You should not write down your email address and password together in the same place and you must take care that nobody sees (or overhears) you when entering your details into the App.
4.2 If you forget your password, you can click the ‘forgot password’ link on the login page where you will be guided through the steps for replacing your password.
4.3 If your correct login details are used to access your Account, we will assume that you are the person accessing it and you will be responsible for such use (including any Transactions). You must notify us immediately by emailing [email protected] or the feedback page on our website at www.kodypay.com upon discovering or suspecting that your login details or the electronic device to which you downloaded the App have been lost, mislaid or stolen or that anyone else has learned your login details or that there has been any unauthorised use of your Account. Until you do, your Account will not be secure. Upon contacting us, we will lock your Account to prevent anyone else from using it. We will then work with you to update your password and unlock your Account.
4.4 As we do not control the security of the internet or other networks you use to access the Services, we are not responsible for the security of information that you choose to communicate with us while it is being transmitted or for any data lost during transmission.
4.5 You are solely responsible for obtaining and maintaining the security of the computer, smartphone and other equipment that you use to access the Services and for paying for such equipment and any telecommunications charges.
5. SUSPENSION, CANCELLATION AND CHANGE TO FUNCTIONALITY
5.1 We must approve your registration for an Account. We reserve the right to decline any application for an Account, for any reason in our absolute discretion.
5.2 If you wish to close your Account, any credit in your account which were provided to you by us will be retained by us upon closing your Account.
5.3 We may suspend, cancel or amended your Account for any reason without warning. If we suspend, cancel or amend your Account we will send you an email setting out what has occurred to your Account and the reasons why.
5.4 We may suspend, cancel or amend the Services from time to time without warning. If we suspend, cancel or amend the Services we will send you an email notifying you of the changes to the Services.
There is a strong WIFI network at the University which should minimise interruptions to services. However, we have no control over the wifi network, Nisa Store equipment or the internet itself and so are not liable for any issues you may experience when using the App or the Services related to these.
7.1 If you have a complaint about any of the Services, please contact us at [email protected] or use the in-App chat function on our website at www.kodypay.com.
7.2 If you are not satisfied with the way a complaint has been handled, you are welcome to raise a complaint with the University for further investigation.
Sometimes we will offer rewards for things like inviting friends to join the App or for promotional purposes. 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 sign-up bonus once, or once per friend you invite). You will be provided with any terms and conditions relating to such rewards at the time they are offered by us. You might have to pay income tax on the money you get as part of these rewards. Contact HMRC if you are unsure.
9. CHARGES OUTSIDE KODYPAY'S CONTROL
In the event Customers are able to credit their own Account, you may have to pay other costs, taxes or charges in relation to your Account. Such charges are outside of Kodypay’s control and not charged by us. For example, other banks may charge you for sending money to your Account.
10. FINANCIAL SERVICES COMPENSATION SCHEDULE
The Financial Services Compensation Schedule is not applicable.

Generally, we will not hold your personal information for more than six years after our business relationship with you has ended, unless we need to hold it for longer because of a potential or ongoing claim or another legal reason.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data. See clause 13 below for further information.
