GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS TRUSTLY
APPLICABLE END USER GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS V. 7.0
1. GENERAL INTRODUCTION OF THE SERVICE
Trustly (the "Service") is a bank-independent payment solution supporting the execution of transactions from bank accounts in a number of banks in a selection of countries. The service constitutes a tool which you (the "User") may use to execute payments through your online banking service in a simplified manner to an online supplier (the "Supplier") providing you a product or service. The service consists of an additional interface between the User and the interface of its online banking service designed specifically for the purposes of simplifying your completion of a specific transaction. The User personally carries through and completes all necessary steps for proceeding with a transaction such as logging in to the online banking service, selecting account from which to pay, and signing the transaction. The User will, consequently, have full control over all phases of the completion of a transaction. Where the User has a payment setting installed in its internet bank-service which delays the initiation of the payment from the bank account (“forfallsbetaling), the Service will independently alter this setting to (“straksbetaling”) in order to enable immediate initiation of the payment. After completion of the payment, the Service will automatically alter the setting back to the setting (“forfallsbetaling”). The Service allows the User to execute a swift and secure bank transfer in a user-friendly interface without the need for any additional software or registration arrangements. The Service may also be used by the User for the purpose of authenticating oneself towards a Supplier, in order to receive a payment.
The Service is not offered by or affiliated with your bank. The Service is provided to you by Trustly Group AB (556754-8655), Sweden, ("Trustly"), through the Supplier that you want to transfer funds to or receive a payment from. Please read the Terms and Conditions carefully. In case you do not accept the Terms and Conditions, do not proceed with the transaction. By using the Service, you agree to the Terms and Conditions as set forth in this Agreement at the time of the transaction. The Terms and Conditions may be revised from time to time without prior notice and the User must therefore ensure that the terms are reviewed in each case before proceeding with a transaction. In the event of a change of the terms, the revised version will be labelled with a new version number.
