The Bank shall be entitled, by notifying the Merchant, to stop partly or fully the provision of the Service (including the prohibition of the effecting of Transactions or blocking the use of a Terminal) or to restrict the range of Cards permitted for Transactions or to stop payments to be made to the Merchant under clause 7.1 or a Transaction, instead of the Merchant and without the consent of the Merchant, if:
- The Merchant breaches the restrictions stipulated in the Agreement or does not perform the obligations stipulated in the Agreement;
- this is requested by the Processor or an International Card Organisation;
- any of the circumstances set out in clause 4.13 occur;
- The Merchant cancels more than 1 (one) per cent of Transactions effected in a period of 24 hours;
- this is needed for blocking or preventing fraud perpetrated with Cards or Transactions or any other illegal activities; or
- When Transactions are effected, the requirements under the Agreement (including the requirements for the use of a Terminal, the Data Security Requirements or the Security Requirements for Acceptance) or instructions issued by the Bank or the Processor are not observed.
At the Bank’s request, the Merchant shall provide clarifications concerning any circumstances under which the rights specified in clause 10.1 are exercised and shall, at the Bank’s request, change to the necessary extent the procedures used for effecting Transactions or any other related activities.
The Bank may also exercise several of the rights specified in clause 10.1.
If the Bank exercises a right specified in clause 10.1, the Bank’s obligation to perform its obligations under the Agreement shall be deemed suspended in the relevant respect.
The Bank shall inform the Merchant of the termination of the application of any restrictions (except if the restrictions applied are resolved in accordance with the procedure set out in clause 4.13).
The exercising of rights specified in clause 10.1 shall neither prejudice nor preclude the exercising of rights specified in clause 12.
