B, 1st Registration. Bank of Spain Registry: 6707), which allows the User to pay for goods and services in places that accept VISA cards and to make purchases through the internet, as long as the website supports this means of payment.
The request of a Verse card will imply the User’s consent in relation to the charges that Verse makes in the User Account as a result of the transactions and arrangements made with said additional cards. The balance of the card will not accrue, in any case, interest or any other type of payments in favor of the User.
The use of the Verse card can be made in accordance with the instructions for use established by Verse in these Conditions and in the Application, without prejudice to the power that Verse has to modify such instructions for use. The modifications will be published in the Application. They will take effect sixty calendar days after their publication, unless expressly indicated otherwise.
The maximum total amount of operations that may be carried out will be determined, at any time, by the amount available in the User Account.
Each operation will be registered by Verse and the User may access such information through the Application. The transaction information will be reflected in accordance with the information received from the invoice, POS terminal, electronic registration terminals and/or authorization of operations, reading of its magnetic strip or electronic chip or any other means of identification established in the conditions of use of the Verse card, including when showing ID or the use of a PIN and/or signature is not required. The same will also be applicable for purchases where the Verse card is not present, including over the internet.
The use of the Verse card will be presumed by the mere registration of the transaction in the Verse computer files.
The User expressly authorizes Verse to settle in the User Account the operations carried out by the User when the User has consented to them. It will be understood that the User has consented to the operation, when it has been carried out through any of the channels provided by Verse.
Likewise, the User accepts that the User Account serves as an accounting support to carry out operations using any means of payment that is associated with it, in this case only the Verse card.
All those that are duly authorized by the User, or in charge of any of them, will be admitted as User Account debts.

With the issuance of the Verse card, Verse provides a personal identification number (hereinafter PIN), which the User, if applicable, may modify and that will be required for the authorisation of the payment transaction, in order to prove that they are the legitimate owner of the Verse card. This PIN will be requested by the User through the Application and/or when using the Verse card for ATM and POS transactions. The PIN must be kept secret, without informing third parties or writing it down or keeping it in a way that allows a third person to have access to it.
If a third party knows the User’s PIN and makes use of the Verse card, the acts that the third party performs will bind the User, assuming the cost and risk of such operations and dispositions, without Verse being able to assume any responsibility.
The User must notify Verse, without undue delay, the loss or theft of the Verse card or the PIN number, or the knowledge of it by a third party. Upon receiving this communication, Verse will take the necessary measures to prevent the use of the Verse card.
4.5. Use of Verse card abroad
For the debit of the amounts derived from the use of the Verse card abroad, the exchange rate will be applied to the currency of the User Account based on the currency of the country of origin of the transaction corresponding to the day on which Verse has paid the amount of the operation.
The exchange rate to the currency of the User Account on the currency in which the payment is made will be carried out in the terms established by International Visa (for more information consult their website).
The User Account may not reflect a negative balance derived from the operations carried out by the User, and will therefore be obliged to have a sufficient balance for each transaction requested.
The User will be subject to the current legislation regulating the currency exchange limits set by the competent monetary authorities for expenses abroad. If applicable, the User will respond for the breach of said regulations, and no responsibility can be attributed to Verse. The expenses incurred must be justified by the holder before any authorities that require it, and Verse will not be liable for any breach by the holder.

In the case of renewal of the Verse card, upon its expiration date, a new Verse card will be sent by post to the customer, with thirty calendar days prior to said date, applying, in each case, the renewal conditions applicable for individuals at that time.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Verse reserves the right to cancel or modify the validity date of the Verse cards during the term of their validity, as well as not to renew them upon expiration, with the User having revoked all rights related to its use.
If the User cancels the User Account to which it is associated, the Verse card will be canceled simultaneously. The User must reimburse Verse for the amount, if any, of the debt and expenses incurred that are pending payment, Contract with the User being terminated.

In exceptional cases, when due to reasons beyond the Verse control, Verse is not able to provide a response within 15 business days, Verse shall provide the User with a non-final response, indicating the reason for the delay and the deadline for submitting a final response. The deadline for providing a final response shall not exceed 35 business days. A response shall be provided to the User via the Application and/or e-mail linked to their User Account and/or using durable medium (as defined within the Contract above) .

12. Validity of the Contract and termination
The Contract shall be valid for unlimited term, unless otherwise established therein.
Either party may terminate the Contract without notice should the other party breach the respective obligations that govern it.
In any event, the Contract termination also implies the cancellation of the User account.
12.1. Termination at the User’s initiative
The User may exercise, their right to withdraw from the Contract within 14 calendar days from signing without giving any reason using the Application’s cancellation functionality or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org from the User’s address provided during the Application registration process.
The User shall have the right to terminate the Contract by notifying Verse of the termination within the immediate effect. In such case the User must withdraw any balance that may exist in their User Account prior to termination or transfer the remaining fund the selected bank account by the User (in case of funds transfer, Contract can be cancelled only after execution of the transaction).
Without prejudice to the foregoing, the User may at any time instigate their removal from the Application using the functionality provided for this purpose.
Where the User requests to terminate the Contract, Verse shall issue to such User free of charge via the Application or e-mail the User Account statement containing information on payment transactions executed in User Account within the last 36 months. The User Account statement must be provided immediately after termination of the Contract.
Termination of this Contract shall not exempt the User from the due discharge of all obligations to Verse arising before the day of its termination.
12.2. Termination at Verse initiative
Verse may terminate the Contract notifying the User about the termination privately (via the Application, e-mail, SMS) or publicly (publishing a note in Verse web page and/or app) no later than 60 calendar days in advance of its termination, excluding the cases when laws of the Republic of Lithuania and/ or the Contract establish otherwise.
In cases established by laws of the Republic of Lithuania and/or the Contract Verse shall have the right to terminate the Contract immediately, without the above specified advance notification of the User.
Termination of this Contract shall not exempt the User from the due discharge of all obligations to Verse arising before the day of its termination. Payment transactions initiated under this Contract termination shall be completed in observance of provisions of this Contract applicable before its termination, unless otherwise agreed by Verse and the User.
12.3. Changes of the Contract
Verse has the right to unilaterally change the Contract and/or fees and commissions at any time. In case of the changes which worsen the User’s situation Verse must notify the User in via the Application, e-mail or SMS associated to the User Account or other durable medium. This notification will be made at least 60 calendar days in advance of the enforcement of such changes.
Verse shall also have the right to notify the User of the changes which do not worsen the User’s situation disregarding the time limits established above in this paragraph (modifications may be applied immediately, without the need for a waiting period or prior notice). The establishment of the commission for new services shall not be treated as the worsening the User’s situation.
In both cases, the User may terminate their legal relationship with Verse proposing the modification at no cost prior to the entry into force of the modification, notifying their decision using the method provide by it for this purpose, although this will mean the User may no longer continue ordering payment operations via the Application or Verse Card. The User will be considered to have accepted the modification if they have no deleted their account before the new terms come into effect. If said period has elapsed without the contract being terminated, it shall remain in force with the new conditions in place.
The updated Contract shall be made available to the User, and these may be requested at any time and sent to the User to the email address linked to the User Account.
13. Telematic signature. Transaction authorisation
The User gives their express consent to the use of telematic acceptance media such as, for example, the act of checking a checkbox or pressing an icon with the terms “accept”, “finish”, “OK”, “confirm”, or entering a username and password (hereinafter Telematic signature), as a means of providing their consent, including, but not limited to, entering into contracts with Verse, the acceptance of specific disclaimers and communications from said institutions, and the sending of orders and instructions via the Application.
Telematic signature is deemed to be the equivalent of a manual User signature for all intents and purposes. Consequently, the sending of orders and instructions via the Application constitutes the User’s authorisation and acceptance of the operation performed, and the impossibility of it being repudiated (either directly or via a third-party with access to their Smartphone and their data due to User negligence, or when the User has acted fraudulently and in bad faith).
The User expressly accepts that Verse may save the contracts and orders signed on its secure servers, by way of telematic delivery, and use them as proof of execution. In the event of a discrepancy between their copy and the filed contract or order, the latter shall prevail.
14. Intellectual Property
Verse grants, and the User accepts, a free license to use the Application owned by Verse, which is personal and non-transferable, limited, non-exclusive and available, following acceptance of these Conditions, through a telematic download process, to directly access the home screen enabling access and use of the functionality provided via the Application. Said use includes the total or partial reproduction of the Application exclusively in the form of its use, downloading, execution and display on a Smartphone.
The use of the Application is restricted to the aforementioned use and its use for any other purpose is expressly prohibited and is considered to be an act of software piracy that infringes intellectual and industrial property law, such that Verse may seek liability for non-compliance with this condition, in accordance with applicable laws. Likewise, the user or third-parties are expressly prohibited from manipulating, either in full or in part, the Application.
Likewise, the Application as a whole, that is, its constituent elements (texts, images, brands, logos, audio files, software files, colour combinations, etc.), as well as the structure, selection and order in which its content is presented, are protected by Intellectual and Industrial property law, and cannot be subject to exploitation, reproduction, distribution, modification, public communication, cessation or transformation or any other form of dissemination unless expressly authorised.
Access to the Application does not grant the User any form of right to, or ownership of, the intellectual or industrial property rights for the content within the Application. Verse reserves the right to take the relevant legal action against any Users that violate or infringe its intellectual and/or industrial property rights.
The User is responsible for checking that the Application is compatible with their Smartphone, and is therefore liable for any damage that may arise from the use of the Application, including its installation on the Smartphone.
Verse reserves the right to modify and/or improve the Application, at any time and without prior notice, which will then become the exclusive property of Verse. In particular, Verse reserves the right to delete, limit or prevent access to the Application in the event of technical difficulties arising due to events or circumstances beyond the control of Verse which, in its opinion, reduce or cancel the standard security levels adopted for the correct operation of said Application.
15. Applicable law
The law of the Republic of Lithuania is applicable to the Contract and relations of the Parties that are not regulated by the Contract.
16. Language of the Contract and Communication
These terms and conditions are prepared in English language and all communication between the User and Verse is performed in English language.
By entering into the Contract, the User confirm that understand English language and agree to communicate with Verse in English language as far as the legal relations arising under the Contract are concerned including the submitting and resolving any complaints.
It can be agreed on an individual basis for the Contract and service documents to be provided in another language.
17. Verse referral program and other bonus programs
The purpose of the rewards program and all other Verse bonuses is to encourage existing Verse users to help share the App with family and friends. The intended use of any bonus credited to a user’s account is to further encourage the use of the application. Therefore, Verse will remove the bonus received from inactive accounts. For these purposes Verse defines any account that has not initiated a payment (either within the application or with a card or POS terminal) for 30 consecutive days as inactive. Verse will not put an account into a negative balance by removing the bonus.
The referral program “Invite your friends” rewards Users that recommend the use of the Application to people close to them who are not yet Users of Verse with a reward per each new User referred.
The parties in the referral program are:
- Existing User: a person who has an active account with Verse.
- New User: a person who does not have any existing active account with Verse and that downloads and registers in the Application using the link provided by the existing user. If a telephone number has previously been registered with Verse, that phone number is not eligible to be used with the referral program.
Verse will generate a personal link to each existing user that can be shared with new users from the option “Invite your friends” in the Application.
Per each new User that registers in the Application using the link sent by an existing User, Verse will pay both the amount shown in ‘invite your friends’ section. The money will be transferred to the Verse wallet of each of them if they meet the following the conditions:
- The new User must add at least one card and make one or various payments to other User(s) totaling an amount of EUR 25.
- The account of the new User must be unique.
- The Verse Card used by the new User should have not been previously used by another existing User.
- The reward deposited in the User Account of the “New User” cannot be sent to the “Existing User” or vice versa.
- Both users must verify their accounts by completing the KYC process.
Each new User can only receive and use one invitation.
An existing User that cancels their User Account will not be able to register in the Application with an invitation or referrals.
This referral program should not be used for a commercial purpose. Verse reserves the right to remove the invitations from existing Users in case of abuse use of the referral program. Verse may also remove the rewards from Users’ accounts if we believe they were earned in a dishonest or unfair manner. The maximum amount a User can acquire from the referral program is EUR 50 and Verse may remove additional credit placed onto the User Account through the program.
How it works:
- Each new User will receive one invitation when a card is added to the Application. A total number of five invites can be accumulated as the new User uses the Application following what it has been described above.
- Once the 5 invitations have been used, the system will automatically generate new invitations based on the correct use of the Application.
- Invited Users can only register in the Application using the link received from an existing user.
- Once the new User has added at least one card and has made one or various payments to other User(s) totaling an amount of EUR 25, both, the new User and the existing User will receive the reward.
*Verse has the right to change the amount to be given when it deems appropriate.*
