Once one Business Day has elapsed from the date of purchase, cardholders can use the Card to pay for purchases at Participating Retailers. The Card is issued by GVS Prepaid Limited and is subject to these terms and conditions.
Certain limits apply to the Card. A maximum value of £400 may be loaded onto the Card at the time of purchase; the minimum load value is £10. Only full £1 amounts (or multiples thereof) may be loaded onto the Card. Additional amounts may not be loaded onto the Card at any time. Interest will not be payable in respect of Card balances.

“GVS Prepaid”, “We” (or “we”) or “us” means GVS Prepaid Limited whose registered office is at 4 The Merlin Centre, Acrewood Way, St Albans, AL4 0JY, and any business or other person to whom any or all of our rights and responsibilities under this Agreement may be transferred or delegated.
“Participating Retailer” means a supplier of goods and/or services in the UK which has agreed to accept the Card as payment for goods and/or services. A list of participating retailers can be found on the One4all website.
“Programme Partner” means a corporate body or organisation that purchased the One4all Gift Card.
“Valid thru” means the period within which the physical Card is operational and ends on the Valid Thru date. (A replacement Card will be required to use any funds remaining on the card after this date.)
“Website” means the One4all website www.one4allgiftcard.co.uk
“You” (or “you”) and “Your” (or “your”) means the person who purchased the Card or the person in possession of the Card from time to time who has been gifted the Card by the purchaser.

2.1 The use of the Card is subject to the terms of this Agreement as may be varied by us from time to time. The current version of the terms and conditions is available on the Website. Purchase and Usage of the Card constitutes your acceptance of these terms and conditions.
2.2 The Card will not be personalised; meaning the cardholders name will not be printed on the card. The Card is transferable by delivery. We will assume, unless and until you tell us to the contrary, that the person who uses the Card at any time is the rightful user of the Card.
2.3 The Card will normally be available for use within one Business Day from the date of purchase; the Card may not be used in the intervening period.
2.4 Please record your Card number or retain the purchase receipt as proof of purchase; the Card number will be needed to redeem your Card balance or if your Card is lost or stolen (see Clauses 10 and 11 of these terms and conditions).
2.5 You may use the Card, in accordance with any instructions issued by us from time to time, until the Card balance reaches zero, at which point this Agreement will automatically terminate and your right to use the Card for Card Purchases will cease.
2.6 You may request repayment of any credit balance outstanding on the Card by calling GVS on 0870 085 4141. A Redemption Fee may be applied in accordance with Clauses 6 and 10.
2.7 The Card belongs to us. It must be returned to us (cut in half vertically) immediately upon request. We or any person acting on our behalf (including GVS) may retain the Card at any time without notice to you.
3. FUNDS PROTECTION
3.1 The One4all Gift Card is an electronic money product and is issued by GVS Prepaid. GVS Prepaid keeps all money exchanged for the One4all Gift Card in a bank account which is separate and segregated from the assets of GVS Prepaid. This means, in the unlikely event of GVS Prepaid becoming insolvent your money is protected and will be available for return to card holders.
3.2 The Financial Services Compensation Scheme does not cover claims made in connection with the issuing of electronic money
4. PROTECTING YOUR CARD
4.1 You must:
(a) treat the Card as if it were cash
(b) take all reasonable care and precaution in the custody of the Card and ensure that the Card is not lost, mislaid or stolen
(c) keep your transaction receipts safe and dispose of them carefully and
(d) never give your Card number or any other Card information to anyone unless you know who they are and why they need such information.
4.2 We recommend that you protect your Card from scratches and exposure to magnets which may damage the Card and result in it not being readable when presented at a retailer as a form of payment.
5. USING YOUR CARD
5.1 The Card may only be used in Participating Retailers. The up to date list of Participating Retailers is available on the website; the list of Participating Retailers may change from time to time.
5.2 We will debit the amount of all Card Purchases to the Card, at the time that the transaction takes place. You must not use the Card to spend more than the Card balance at any time. If you attempt to spend more than the Card balance your transaction may be declined.
5.3 You cannot stop a Card Purchase after it has been authorised. To authorise a purchase you must sign a receipt for each Card Purchase; the amount of the Card Purchase must be confirmed with the Participating Retailer at the time of authorisation.
5.4 We will not issue statements. You can obtain your Card balance or obtain information about previous Card Purchases by logging onto the website or calling GVS on 0330 828 0881. You are responsible for monitoring your Card balance and for ensuring that there are sufficient funds on the Card at all times to pay for Card Purchases. The up to date Card balance and any recent Card transactions will be available to view the same day. You can print out the transaction history for your records.
5.5 If at any time you believe that a Card Purchase has been incorrectly debited to your Card you must notify GVS immediately by calling 0370 085 4141 and in any event within thirteen months of the date of the Card Purchase. If requested, you must put your query in writing. We will investigate the transaction and, if appropriate, reinstate the balance on your Card on completion of our investigation if the transaction is found to be fraudulent, unauthorised and completed without any negligence on your part.
5.6 If the amount of a purchase which you wish to make using your Card is greater than the available balance, you can pay the difference in cash or by another payment method.
5.7 Your card does not expire. You will see a ‘Valid Thru’ date on the front of your card. This will be used as the expiry date when shopping online. If you have funds remaining on the card at this valid thru date, you should contact us and we will reissue a new card to you. Please note that while your card does not expire a monthly inactive balance charge will be applied if any funds remain on your card 18 months after its date of purchase. See section 6 below.
5.8 Neither GVS Prepaid nor GVS will be liable for any defects in any goods or services paid for using the Card. Any queries or complaints about such goods or services should be addressed to the relevant Participating Retailer(s).
6. FEES AND CHARGES
6.1 The amounts of fees and details of when they will be payable are set out in the table below. The Postage and Packing Fee must be paid separately at the time of purchase of the Card.

12. PARTICIPATING RETAILERS
12.1 It will be necessary in all cases for a Participating Retailer to obtain authorisation from us or our agents to honour the Card for a particular Card Purchase; this is to ensure that there are sufficient funds on the Card. We may refuse to authorise a Card Purchase at any time if there are insufficient funds on the Card.
12.2 A Participating Retailer may not be able to obtain authorisation from us in some circumstances (for example, if there is a problem with the phone line between the Participating Retailer’s premises and our authorisation centre).

Furthermore, neither GVS Prepaid nor GVS will be liable for the refusal of any Participating Retailer to accept or honour the Card for any reason.
12.3 If a Participating Retailer becomes liable to make a refund to you we will not credit the amount of any refund to the Card; refunds are a matter between you and the relevant Participating Retailer.
