These General Terms and Conditions will apply to all use of Uno-X Firma card and Uno-X Truck card (the Card), issued by Uno-X Mobility Norge AS (the Card Issuer) to the customer.
The customer is the business in whose name the account is held (the Account Holder). The Account Holder is responsible for the use of Card by all person(s) having access to the Card (the Card Holder).
The Card may be used at stations and other shops having an agreement with the Card Issuer regarding the use of the Card for payment. The Card may be used to purchase goods (in the following, the term goods means petrol/diesel products and non-fuel/other products sold at stations) and services at all Uno-X Truck stations, selected Uno-X fuel stations, YX attended stations and YX/7-Eleven stations in Norway. The Card is also accepted at Uno-X Truck stations in Denmark and Preem stations in Norway and Sweden.
If there is a conflict between a provision in these General Terms and Conditions and the application form, the General Terms and Conditions shall precede the application form.
2. Application and credit rating
The Account Holder must submit a card application form to the Card Issuer. By signing the application form, it is agreed that further information, including credit information, will be obtained in order to process the application. All card applications are subject to credit ratings. Information from credit reporting agencies, publicly available sources and sources listed in the application form will be checked. The application may be declined by the Card Issuer without justification.
The Card Issuer may require that the Account Holder provide and maintain security towards the Card Issuer for credit granted under this agreement. The Card Issuer may require the Account Holder to increase the amount of security, or to provide additional security if the Card Issuer, in its sole discretion, considers this necessary as a guarantee for the Account Holder's current or future payments to the Card Issuer.
3. Acceptance of agreement terms
By signing the application, the Account Holder accepts being bound by the contract terms and the General Terms and Conditions for the use of the Card. The Account Holder is obliged to carefully examine the terms applicable to the Card and follow the instructions for use of the Card. Moreover, the Account Holder is responsible for keeping the Card Holder informed of the terms and conditions applicable to the use of the Card, and for the Card Holder to act in accordance with the Account Holder's obligations under this agreement.
4. Electronic communications
The Account Holder agrees that the Card Issuer may use electronic mail to communicate and to provide information and notifications and that agreements may be concluded by electronic means. A text on screenshots, e-mail and mobile phone is equivalent to ordinary paper-based mail.
5. Dispatch of payment card and personal code
Upon the approval of the application, the Card is sent to the Account Holder. The Card shall be signed by the Account Holder/Card Holder immediately upon receipt. The Account Holder chooses whether the name of the Card Holder or the registration number of a vehicle is imprinted on the Card, and may request the imprinting of other identification, subject to approval by the Card Issuer. At the Account Holder's request, the Card Issuer may, at its sole discretion, issue cards that are neither driver cards nor vehicle cards.
The Card remains the property of the Card Issuer. However, the Account Holder is entitled to use the Card in accordance with the terms stipulated herein. The Card shall be stored in the same safe manner as other valuables.
A personal identification number (PIN-code) is assigned to the Account Holder for each Card. The PIN and the Card must be kept separately. The Account Holder shall make sure that no one else can see the code when it is entered. The code should be memorized. If the code is noted down, this should be done in such a manner that no one but the Account Holder/Card Holder can discern the purpose of the digits.
If a card machine is out of order, or the card is unreadable, the Card can be used for manual transactions. A valid public identity card must be presented and the sales slip must be signed for the approval of the transaction.
6. Credit and purchase limits
The Account Holder shall use the Card subject to agreed monetary limitations as to credit and otherwise, for example per transaction and/or time period (day, week, month). Limits may also apply to one or certain group(s) of products. These limits are determined and subject to alteration at any time at the Card Issuer’s sole discretion. The Card Issuer will upon request provide information regarding the applicable purchase and credit limits. The Account Holder acknowledges that the Card must not be used for the purchase of tobacco products and gambling services (the term covers all types of gambling). The Card Issuer determines which categories of goods that may be purchased with the Card, and may at any time without notice expand or reduce the categories of goods offered when using the Card. The issuance of the Card to the Account Holder does not grant the Account Holder any right to obtain goods.
The Account Holder shall keep the Card Holder informed of the applicable limits regarding credit and products at all times. If the limits mentioned above are exceeded, the Card Issuer reserves the right to terminate this agreement, or to revoke the Card or impose a fee.

The Account Holder’s net credit period is 30 days from the date of transaction, cf. Section 9. The Account Holder will receive monthly statements (invoices) showing the use of the Card during the period and the total outstanding balance. The Account Holder shall pay the invoices by the due dates. The Card Issuer reserves the right to charge an invoice administration fee.
In the event of late payment, interest at the current rate of 15.00% p.a. will accrue until payment is made. Interest on overdue payment will be included in the next invoice.
If a merchant erroneously charges the Account Holder for purchases, the Account Holder must notify the Card Issuer in writing without undue delay. The Account Holder has no right of retention or set-off for payment demands arising from the use of the Card unless the Account Holder’s counterclaim is acknowledged by the Card Issuer in writing or is legally enforceable by settlement or judgment.
Disputed invoices shall be paid in full by the Account Holder by the due date. If the parties subsequently agree that such an invoice needs to be adjusted, the Card Issuer shall immediately issue a credit memo and pay back this amount, or deduct it from any amount the Account Holder already owes the Card Issuer. Any objection to an invoice must be raised within 30 days of the invoice date. A claim is deemed to be abandoned if not presented within the set time limit.
The Card Issuer is entitled, at any time and at its sole discretion, to change the payment method or payment deadline and to amend or withdraw any credit extended to the Account Holder. If credit is withdrawn, the Account Holder must immediately pay all amounts owed to the Card Issuer, irrespective of whether the amount has already been invoiced or not, and regardless of any other remedies the Card Issuer may have at its disposal.
12. Default on payment obligations
A breach of the agreement occurs if payment is not made when due, and the account and the Card will be suspended for further use.

Upon settlement of all outstanding balances, reopening of the Card and account is considered.
