1.2 Kashing collects Personal Data from their Merchants and their Merchant’s customers (“Cardholders”) in order to enable them to provide Services. Broadly speaking, Kashing collects information in three ways:
when you provide it directly to them,
when Kashing obtains verification information about you or your company through trusted third parties (e.g. banks, credit bureaus,), and
passively through technology such as “cookies” (described below in Section (“Cookies”).
The types of Personal Data that Kashing collects and their use of that Personal Data will depend on whether you are a Cardholder or a Merchant:
To gain full access to Kashing’s services, Merchants must register for a Kashing account. By registering for an account, Kashing collects the Personal Data the Merchant provides, such as the following: Name, company name, location, email address, phone number, and account password, to set up an account Business and personal tax, or other government-issued identification numbers, as well as date of birth, to verify an identity for underwriting purposes Bank account information, to settle funds for transactions IP addresses, devices, and locations used to access Kashing, which will be linked to the account for fraud detection/prevention purposes

1.4 Kashing always processes personal data in accordance with applicable law, and has implemented security measures to prevent that personal data is used for non-legit purposes or disclosed to unauthorised third parties.
Kashing processes your personal data to provide our services, to fulfil relevant agreements with you and to otherwise administrate our business relationship with you. The personal data is further processed to provide you with news, information and marketing concerning our, and other similar, services. Kashing may also use the personal data to improve and develop their website and services.
In addition to the above, Kashing may process personal data for legit credit evaluation and risk management purposes, to prevent abuse of our services and violation of relevant terms and conditions, and to fulfil our obligations under law and rules issued by our designated banks and relevant card networks.
Kashing may share your personal data with their affiliates and third parties for the purposes described above, including to parties located outside the EU/EEA. Kashing’s designated banks and relevant card networks may also come to process your personal data for their own fraud prevention and risk management. Selected service providers, such as certain credit bureaus, may also come to process your personal data to enhance and develop their own services.
Where Kashing has given you (or where you have chosen) a password or access code which enables you to access certain parts of their site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. Please do not to share a password with anyone, and you authorise Kashing to act upon instructions and information from any person that enters your user id or password.

Once Kashing has received your information, Kashing will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Kashing will rectify and update your personal data upon your request and also if certain data is no longer correct.

1.7 Kashing’s website uses “cookies” and other technologies, which store small amounts of information on your computer or device, to allow certain information from your web browser to be collected. Cookies are widely used on the internet and allow a website/portal to recognise a user’s device, without uniquely identifying the individual person using the computer. These technologies help to make it easier for you to log on and use the site, provide feedback to us as to which parts of the website you visit, so we can assess the effectiveness of the site and provide a better user experience or to serve Kashing adverts to you whilst browsing other sites.
You may be able to configure your browser not to accept cookies, although please bear in mind that this may affect your ability to use the services we provide. You may also consider visiting aboutcookies.org, which provides helpful information about cookies.
1.8 Personal Data that Kashing collects and use for any purpose shall not be retained for longer than is necessary. This includes the Personal Data of the Cardholder. Kashing has a variety of obligations to retain the data that you provide, both to ensure that transactions can be appropriately processed, settled, refunded or charged back, to identify fraud, and also to comply with laws applicable to them and to their banking providers and credit card processors. Accordingly, even if you close your Kashing account, Kashing will retain certain information as necessary to meet their obligations. However, the Merchant’s account in Kashing’s database will be identified as “inactive” or “closed”.
These Cardholder Terms of Service are a legal agreement between Kashing Ltd. (“Kashing,” “we” or “us”) and you, the user of the Kashing’s service (“you”). By using Kashing’s service, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.
By making a payment through Kashing gateway, you accept and agree that Kashing will be the beneficiary of the transaction on behalf of the merchant. You also agree to the relevant Merchant’s booking conditions, including cancellation, damages and no-show policies applicable to that booking, and to any additional (delivery) terms and conditions of the Merchant that may apply to your reservation or during your stay, including for services rendered and/or products offered by the Merchant (the delivery terms and conditions of a Merchant can be obtained with the relevant Merchant). The general cancellation, damages and no-show policy of each Merchant is made available on the Merchant website under “Booking Conditions”, “Cancellation Policies” or the like, and in the confirmation email. Please note that you may be charged for your cancellation in accordance with the Merchant’s cancellation and no-show policy, in some cases for the entire stay or the first night. We recommend that you read the cancellation and no-show policy of the Merchant carefully prior to making your reservation. If you fail to check in to your Merchant on time on the day of your reservation and do not alert the Merchant, the remaining portion of your reservation may be cancelled and you may not be entitled to a refund, depending on the terms and conditions of the applicable Merchant. Regardless of the Merchant’s cancellation policy, Kashing reserves the right to charge a cancellation fee. Please carefully check the Merchant details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your reservation. Some Merchants will charge extra for early or late check-outs..
If you wish to review, adjust or cancel your reservation, please revert to the confirmation email or contact Kashing via our email address - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Damages: You are responsible for and agree to reimburse the Merchant all costs incurred as a result of any breakage or damage in or to the property which is caused by you or any members of your party or any other persons invited into the property by you. The Merchant can ask for an extra payment from you to cover any such costs without permission.
The Merchant expects the accommodation to be left in a reasonable state on departure. If in the Merchant’s opinion, additional cleaning is required, you will be liable to the owner for the cost of this cleaning.
You may need to check and sign an inventory of the property and its contents on arrival at the property. If you discover that anything is missing or damaged on arrival please notify the Merchant immediately.
Special Needs: If you have special needs (e.g., wheelchair accessible room) you must contact the Merchant and verify that special needs can be met. Please note that all special requests are subject to availability and cannot be guaranteed by Kashing. Depending on the policy of the applicable Merchant, your reservation will be refunded, cancelled or modified if special needs cannot be met. If available, your request will be confirmed upon arrival.
For pre-paid bookings through Kashing as the agent and benefactor, your card will be charged by Kashing for the full price (sometimes without any option for refund depending on the Merchant’s booking conditions upon reservation and confirmation of the booking or, in case of a pre-authorisation booking or indicated availability booking, at the future point in time communicated in the confirmation email. When using pre-authorisation booking or indicated availability, please ensure that the card is valid and has sufficient credit on the future payment date. If the card cannot be charged on such date for whatever reason, the booking will be cancelled unless you can ensure that the card payment can be authorised on time. Please check the reservation details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your reservation. Kashing will process refunds, if and when applicable, within a reasonable timeframe. For certain Merchants, we will not charge your card, as you will pay the Merchant directly for your stay (post-paid). However, in such cases some Merchants may pre-authorise your card, charge a deposit or charge the full price of the reservation up-front. Merchants may require card details in order to guarantee your reservation. As such, we will send your card information directly to the Merchant at which your booking is made and we may verify (i.e. pre-authorise) your card as well. In order to safeguard and encrypt your card information when in transit to us, we use the "Secure Socket Layer (SSL)" or industry accepted security technology for our services.
In the event of card fraud or unauthorised use of your card by third parties, you should contact your bank or card issuer immediately upon becoming aware of such unauthorised use. If you suspect an unauthorised or fraudulent booking was made via Kashing, please contact our Customer Service team immediately.
In order to make a booking you must be over 18 years old (or the age of majority in those countries and territories where it is higher than 18) and have the full legal capacity to make the transaction (or have the authorisation from your legal guardian). You undertake that the credit or debit card you are using is your own or that you are authorised to complete the booking with this card and that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the transaction. You accept financial responsibility for all transactions made under your name or account.
We have stringent fraud detection and prevention mechanisms in place. In certain cases, we may require additional information or verifications to validate and confirm the booking, as explained in more detail under the section (“Using Kashing”). A small verification charge or pre-authorisation may also be made to your card when using indicated availability. The balance will be charged after confirmation or, in case of indicated availability, on the future payment date (see the comment above about the possibility of cancellation in case the card cannot be charged on that date for whatever reason). Reservations are not confirmed until you have received a confirmation mail and it is possible that a Merchant could become fully booked during the fraud check, in which case the reservation will no longer be available. Kashing can never be held liable in such cases. Additional information submitted will be treated in line with strict industry standards to protect privacy, using encryption for transmission and specialised agents for verification. If you choose not to submit the additional information or if we are not satisfied with the information received, the booking will not be completed and fully cancelled and any amounts charged (including the verification charge where applicable) will be refunded.
When you check out on the website of a Merchant of which Kashing enables payment, your Personal Data will be automatically remembered and Kashing will store certain identifying information, such as your email address, physical address or your mobile phone number (“Kashing Credentials”), and your Payment Credentials. The advantage of remembering you is that it will make your checkout quicker and easier if you come back to the same website, or to any of the other websites that uses Kashing, this can be especially handy when you’re on a mobile device or don’t have your credit card in front of you.
Although Kashing stores your Payment Credentials, it doesn’t change anything else about your relationship with the Merchant you’re paying or your bank or credit card company. You are ultimately responsible for the purchases you make using Kashing. Also, the Merchant is the one responsible for providing you the goods or services that you purchase using Kashing, not Kashing. Kashing will use our reasonable efforts to keep your Payment Credentials secure.
