Mamo Business Service Descriptions
Payment Acceptance Services
Our Payment Acceptance Service enables you to receive Customer payments via debit and credit cards, and potentially via Mamo Wallet, using a URL we enable for you. You can use the URL in your communications with Customers (such as email, SMS, WhatsApp etc.). Your URL remains consistent, giving you a straightforward and easy way of enabling Customers to make payments to you.
When your Customer attempts to complete a transaction by clicking on your URL, Mamo will establish a connection between the Customer and a third-party payment gateway. When the transaction completes, you will be able to see information relating to the transaction via your Mamo Dashboard.
You do not receive payment immediately. Mamo will receive the funds, then subsequently settle amounts received to your account, minus our Transaction Fee – please see further details below. Your Mamo Dashboard will show the amounts we have received, and the amounts we have settled to you.
If you experience any difficulties, concerns or issues with the services you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. Settlement Period
Mamo operates a daily settlement cycle (excluding days when banks are closed for business in the UAE) for Customer payments. For example, a five-day settlement cycle means that Customer payments processed on day 1, for example are settled to the Business on business day 6 and payments processed on day 2, are settled on business day 7, and so on. As per the pricing structure listed on our website, we do offer numerous settlement cycles.
Mamo does not guarantee settlement of Transactions within (5) business days. Factors such as public holidays, bank non-working days, interruptions in the financial or technical systems and supplier delays may result in slower settlement.
2. Payment Acceptance Process
- If the Business is accepted by Mamo and onboarded for the Payment Acceptance Services, Mamo shall provide the Business with a Payment Link, which the Business may use with its online media accounts or otherwise provide to its Customers via its business communication channels.
- The Business may use the Payment Link to enable Customers to conclude Transactions and to enable Mamo to receive Purchase Amounts into the Holding Account. The Payment Link will enable Customers to pay using certain credit cards and debit cards or potentially their own Mamo Wallet. The Customer payment goes to Mamo first, not directly to the Business.
- After a Customer initiates a Transaction, Mamo will attempt to process the Transaction, using its third-party payment gateway provider solutions. When a Transaction is successfully processed, Mamo will then send an email to the Business confirming: (a) the reference number for the Transaction (b) the value of the Transaction (c) the applicable Transaction Fee (plus any applicable Tax); and (d) the date of the Transaction. Any other information which Mamo is required to provide under Applicable Laws will also be provided. The information described above is referred to as the “Transaction Information”. The Transaction Information will also be shown on your Mamo Dashboard.
- The Mamo Sites enable the Business to access its Mamo Dashboard and view the Transaction Information history and manage its Mamo Account.
- Mamo will process Transactions in accordance with its Policies and may require in certain Transactions that the Customer completes additional verification steps, such as the submission of a 3D Secure confirmation code sent to the Customer.
- Mamo will conduct a periodic reconciliation of funds held in the Holding Account in accordance with clause 8 of the General Business Services Terms and make settlements to you. We will only make settlements if the net amount due to you exceeds AED 10. If the settlement balance is below AED 10, the settlement will be made once the balance exceeds AED 10. We may change this threshold amount from time to time either by amending this agreement in accordance with the General Terms or by notice to you specifically, if your Transaction activity (such as your rate of Chargebacks or the value of your Transactions) is, in Mamo’s reasonable opinion, exposing Mamo to unacceptable financial risk.
- If the Business believes any Transaction Information is incorrect, the Business must notify Mamo by emailing email@example.com as soon as possible. Mamo is not responsible or liable for the consequences of any inaccurate Transaction Information if the Business has failed to provide prompt notice of error.
3. Mamo Fees
Mamo charges a fee for processing Transactions (Transaction Fee).
The applicable Transaction Fee and any other charges (such as where charges are imposed by other parties involved in the payment supply chain which Mamo passes on to the Business) are detailed from time to time on the Mamo Fee Schedule, which is set out on the Mamo Sites. All fees and charges specified are exclusive of any applicable sales Tax, such as VAT, which you agree to pay to Mamo in addition if Mamo is required to collect such Taxes.
We may change our fees in accordance with clause 8 of the General Terms – you will always get at least (14) days’ notice, unless the change is required due to changes in Applicable Law which take effect sooner.
The Business will not be entitled to any proceeds under this agreement if such proceeds are the result of its illegal use of the Services or if the Business is engaged in a Prohibited Business. Mamo reserves the right to withhold and retain such proceeds.
4. Customer Transactions and Refunds
Mamo is not responsible or liable for your dealings with your Customers, nor do its Services form a solicitation, recommendation or otherwise to enter into any transaction with a Customer. All sales you enter into using our Services are between you and your Customer. You must ensure you comply in all respects with all Applicable Laws relating to such transactions.
If you elect to or are required to provide a refund to any Customer, you are responsible for doing so and for arranging the appropriate payment to be made. You are not entitled to any payment or support from Mamo in relation to refunds and waive any right to a refund of the applicable Transaction Fee and Taxes payable to Mamo with respect to the initial Transaction.
You must ensure that you comply with any legal and contractual requirements in relation to refunds and terms of sale generally.
- You may enable Customers to create a Recurring Payment with you. A Recurring Payment means a recurring transaction whereby you and the Customer have agreed that the Customer’s card will be charged on a periodic basis for a defined amount in order to repeatedly buy your Products (which may include any related fees, taxes, shipping charges and so on).
- You are responsible for managing the Recurring Payment relationship with the Customer. Unless you cancel the Recurring Payment through your Mamo Account, or Mamo chooses to stop processing the Recurring Payment as described below, Mamo will continue to charge the Customer in accordance with your instructions.
- Mamo reserves the right to stop processing the Recurring Payment if we decide that you are being unresponsive to queries or Disputes raised by a Customer in respect of the Recurring Payment.
- By creating a Recurring Payment, you represent to Mamo that the Customer in question has entered into a Recurring Payment agreement with you. In accordance with section 5.2 of the General Terms, you acknowledge that you are solely responsible for ensuring the terms of any Recurring Payment are clear, as between you and the Customer, and Mamo has no responsibility for any failure on your part to fulfill the terms of any Recurring Payment.
If a Customer raises a Chargeback request (a request for the card issuing bank to reverse the transaction) it will be communicated to Mamo. Mamo has no involvement in the relationship between you and your Customer and no ability to determine whether the Customer’s request for a Chargeback is legitimate or not, however if the Chargeback is approved then Mamo will be debited by and liable to the relevant third parties.
Mamo will tell you if it receives a Chargeback request for any of your transactions. You must respond very promptly – within 24 hours - if you wish to dispute the Chargeback. If you do not, the Chargeback will not be challenged, and you will need to reimburse Mamo for the Chargeback. You are also liable for all of your own costs associated with disputing any Chargebacks.
Further details are contained in the General Terms. Please read these carefully to ensure your full understanding of these terms.
6. Mamo Transaction reversals
Mamo has business processes aimed at identifying fraudulent activities and other misuse of its services. Accordingly, Mamo is entitled to suspend, refuse or reverse any Transaction which it reasonably suspects does not comply with this agreement or is unlawful or represents a risk to Mamo (Bad Transaction). Mamo may require the Business to provide evidence that the Business has delivered the goods or services in question under a Transaction and you must provide any such evidence promptly - within 24 hours. Mamo has no obligation to process a Transaction where the requested evidence has not been provided within the required timescale. Mamo shall not be liable to the Business for any losses or damage of any nature as a result of Mamo refusing or reversing a Bad Transaction.
If you believe there has been an unauthorized or incorrectly executed Transaction on your account, you must tell us without delay. In any case, if you do not tell us within six months of the Transaction you accept that you have no right of redress.
You will always be liable in full to cover the transaction fees as detailed in the Mamo Fee Schedule, and with respect to Mamo’s costs, losses, and damages and any of the same suffered by you or a third party as a result of you acting fraudulently or with gross negligence.
7. Account Deficit
- As described above, Mamo may be directly liable to third parties involved in the payments industry if Transactions are Charged-back or reversed. Mamo is entitled to recover all such amounts from the Business. Mamo may set off any such amount against amounts of the Business in the Holding Account which have not been settled. If there is not a sufficient balance of the Business in the Holding Account to satisfy such debt, Mamo shall be entitled to recover such amount from the Business as a debt and the Business hereby irrevocably authorises Mamo to debit any payment card or Mamo Wallet that is associated with the Business’ Mamo Account from time to time (in addition to any other remedies and means available to Mamo under law to recover such debt).
- The Business shall not be entitled to set off any amounts it owes to Mamo.
8. Client Money
- We may hold Client Money (as defined in the DFSA Rules) on your behalf.
- Client Money held on your behalf is subject to the DFSA’s Client Money Provisions, as a result: (a) All Client Money is held separate from money belonging to Mamo; and (b) In the event of insolvency, winding up or other Distribution Event (as defined in the DFSA Rules), the Client Money will be subject to the DFSA’s Client Money Distribution Rules;
- We will not pay interest on any Client Money held on your behalf.
- We may hold Client Money in a jurisdiction outside of the DIFC. The market practices, insolvency and legal regime applicable in that jurisdiction may differ from the regime applicable in the DIFC.
- Please see clause 7 (Account Deficit) for further details as to when Mamo may realise Client Money held on your behalf to settle your obligations to us including in relation to Chargeback costs and amounts, as authorised by you under clause 6 of the General Terms. In addition, we may retain Client Money as payment against Transaction Fees, as authorised by you under clause 8 of the General Terms.

If a Business engages or will engage in a “Restricted Business”(as defined below), it will be classified as a Restricted Business for the purposes of this agreement and must undergo a separate review and approval process by Mamo and such approval will remain at Mamo’s discretion (“Additional Review Process”). A ‘Restricted Business’ is a: (a) medical or healthcare business; (b) insurance business; (c) regulated financial services business; (d) real estate brokerage business; (e) business that would be deemed a Designated Non-Financial Body or Profession (“DNFBP”) according to the DFSA rules and regulations; or (f) any other business which requires additional regulatory licenses and permits to operate according to the applicable UAE law.

If Mamo has reason to believe a Business is or will be engaged in a Restricted Business, it may request that such Business undergo the Additional Review Process which will either culminate in an approval or rejection by Mamo. If rejected, the Business will not be onboarded and no agreement (including this agreement) will form between Mamo and the Business.
- A Business that engages or that will engage in a ‘Prohibited Business’ (as defined below) will be classified as a Prohibited Business for the purposes of this agreement and must singlehandedly declare that it is a Prohibited Business to Mamo ahead of the onboarding process, so that Mamo can reject its onboarding as a subscriber to the Services.

A “Prohibited Business” is a business which is involved in one or more of the following activities (and this list of activities, or any part thereof, is subject to change by Mamo at any time and without notice): (a) cryptocurrency trading platforms; (b) non-regulated ‘Introducing Brokers’; (c) CFD brokerages; (d) charities; (e) lotteries / auctions / raffle related activities; (f) sale of counterfeit products; (g) sale of fake subscriptions or followers on social media or fake online traffic; (h) pawn shops; (i) crowdfunding platforms; (j) high-value art dealers; (k) precious stones dealers; (l) military or dual goods related services; (m) selling databases that breach the applicable data protection law; (n) business that Mamo considers to pose a risk (reputational or otherwise) to Mamo; and (o) any other business that is prohibited under the applicable laws of the UAE.
- If after onboarding, a Business intends to genuinely engage in a Restricted Business or Prohibited Business, it shall promptly inform Mamo and, in the case of a Restricted Business, shall undergo the Additional Review Process, or in the case of a Prohibited Business, shall request Mamo’s directions on the matter including whether to terminate this agreement (and any such termination will be based on terms that are satisfactory to Mamo). Mamo reserves the right to terminate this agreement with immediate effect if it has reason to believe that a Business is engaged in a Prohibited Business or is a Restricted Business and has not sought (or obtained) Mamo’s approval.
4. Payment Acceptance Authorisations
- If the Business is receiving Payment Acceptance Services, the Business hereby authorises Mamo to share all such information relating to the Business as is necessary to enable Mamo’s third party payment processing provider to process the Transaction.
- When a Transaction is completed, Mamo will receive the Purchase Amount into the Holding Account.
- The Business hereby irrevocably authorizes Mamo to retain Business funds in the Holding Account until Mamo completes its reconciliation process. The Business acknowledges that Mamo is not a deposit-taking bank and holds the Business’s funds only in a transient manner as needed to complete the Services. Mamo provides a service which facilitates payments by creating a link between the Business and the Customer’s payment method. The transfer of fiat funds between Mamo and the Business will be completed via licensed clearing banks in the UAE.
5. Merchant Payment Acceptance Acknowledgments
- You agree that Mamo offers the Payment Acceptance Service to facilitate the processing of Transactions on behalf of the Business to enable the Business to accept online payment for Products by Customers.
- You acknowledge and agree that sales of Products are transactions between the Business and the Customer and not between the Customer and Mamo.
- Mamo is not responsible for the quality, safety or legality of the Products or for any statement of any nature made in relation to them, nor for compliance with any law relating to the sale or offering for sale of such Products.
- The Business must not use the Payment Link for any purpose other than to enable genuine Transactions requested by Customers from the Business.
- Each Transaction shall be subject to the verification requirements of the third-party payment processing service from time to time (such as 3D Secure, or similar) that a Customer may have to complete. Mamo accepts no responsibility for, and is held harmless by the Business for, any Transaction failure due to the inability of the payment processing service to complete the Transaction for any reason, including without limitation an inability to validate a Customer or due to any lack of funds of the Customer.
- Mamo may withhold funds held in the Holding Account if: (a) Mamo has received notice of a Chargeback request for the relevant Transaction; (b) the relevant Transaction violates Applicable Law or the Policies or was conducted in breach of this agreement; or (c) Mamo requires additional information from the Business to verify the Transaction in accordance with requirements of Applicable Law.
- Mamo will (to the extent permitted by Applicable Law) notify you in a timely manner if it believes any of the matters in clause 5.6 apply.
6. Refunds and Chargebacks
- The Business must operate a fair and legally compliant (taking into account all Applicable Law) policy with respect to return/cancellation of Products and ensure that Customers are made aware of this policy when completing Transactions. Any price adjustments, returns or replacements of Products or cancellation of Products in connection with a Transaction agreed by the Business are a matter between the Business and Customer only and Mamo has no involvement with or liability with respect to such matters whatsoever.
- A Chargeback is initiated by a Customer via the Customer’s issuing bank. Mamo will be the recipient of any Chargeback request received. Mamo is under no obligation to conduct any investigation whatsoever into the merits of the Chargeback or to form any view on the Customer’s legal entitlement to the Chargeback. The Business hereby acknowledges that it shall have no recourse against Mamo with respect to any Chargeback.
- If Mamo receives a Chargeback notification Mamo will notify the Business via electronic notice (Chargeback Notice) using the means customarily used at the time to communicate with the Business with respect to the Services. If the Business does not agree that the Customer is entitled to reverse the Transaction in question and wishes to dispute the Chargeback, the Business must serve a counter-notice on Mamo (Chargeback Dispute Notice) within 24 hours of receipt of the Chargeback Notice using the method made available by Mamo at the relevant time.
- If the Business does not serve a Chargeback Dispute Notice within the 24-hour period referred to in clause 6.3, Mamo will not dispute the Chargeback and the Business shall be deemed to have irrevocably accepted the Chargeback. The Business hereby irrevocably waives any right to request Mamo to participate in or assist any challenge of a Chargeback after the time period described above.
- If a Chargeback is applied for any reason, Mamo will be debited for the amount in question by third party participants in the payment processing supply chain. Accordingly, Mamo may recover such debited funds from the Business by debiting the Business’s Mamo Wallet, if applicable, and if insufficient funds are still available, debiting the amount from future settlement amounts or, if Mamo reasonably believes the Business’s Transaction volumes and amounts will not enable it to recover the money within (2) business days from future settlement amounts, demanding payment of such amount as a debt, which the Business hereby agrees to pay within (2) business days. If the Business has payment card details associated with its Mamo Account, the Business hereby irrevocably authorises Mamo to debit such card with respect to any debt owed to it. Any unrecovered amounts under the above methods may be pursued as a debt by Mamo via any lawful means. Any failure to pursue a debt in a timely manner shall not prevent Mamo from recovering such amounts from future amounts otherwise due to the Business.
- If the Business serves a valid Chargeback Dispute Notice, Mamo will follow the applicable procedure to dispute the Chargeback. The Business must provide all relevant information to Mamo to enable it to do so. Mamo will relay the Business’s information but is under no obligation to make further enquiries or investigations.
- The Business understands that Chargeback schemes are run by payment card scheme operators, and not by Mamo. The Business hereby undertakes to indemnify, keep indemnified and hold harmless Mamo with respect to all losses, costs and expenses suffered or incurred by Mamo as a result of any Chargeback relating to the Transactions. The indemnification obligation includes any costs which are judged to be attributable to Mamo as a result of the Chargeback process, such as dispute fees or settlement fees. Our fees are detailed on the Mamo Sites.
- If a Transaction is refunded or a Chargeback is accepted, Mamo is under no obligation to refund the applicable Transaction Fee to the Business and may continue to debit the Transaction Fee and applicable Taxes in accordance with Clause 9.
7. Brand Features
- Subject to the terms and conditions of this agreement, Mamo grants to the Business a limited, revocable, non-exclusive licence (without the right to sub-license) during the term of this agreement to display those Mamo Brand Features provided to the Business by Mamo solely for use in connection with the implementation of the Services. Mamo may revoke the licence granted by it in this section with notice to the Business, giving the Business a reasonable period to stop using the relevant Brand Features.
- Subject to the terms and conditions of this agreement, the Business grants to each of Mamo and its Affiliates a limited, non-exclusive (except as set out in this section) licence (without the right to sub-license) during the term of this agreement to display the Business Brand Features for use in connection with the Services, including publicly referring to the Business as a customer of Mamo, and in order to fulfil its obligations under this agreement.
- Each party will retain ownership over its rights, titles and interests, including without limitation all Intellectual Property Rights relating to its Brand Features. Except to the limited extent expressly provided in the agreement, neither party grants, and the other party will not acquire, any right, title or interest (including, without limitation, any implied licence) in or to any Brand Features of the other party.
8. Fees and Reconciliation
- The Business is liable to pay the Transaction Fee to Mamo with respect to each Transaction processed under this agreement. The Business hereby agrees to the deduction of all applicable Transaction Fees (plus Taxes) as payment for the Services.
- Mamo may also introduce additional fees for new or changed features from time to time. To the extent you use any paid-for elements of Mamo’s services you agree to pay the applicable fees.
- The Business will pay all applicable Taxes imposed under Applicable Law and due with respect to the fees, which Mamo shall invoice for and document as part of the reconciliation documentation. The Business irrevocably instructs Mamo to take into account such Taxes in the reconciliation process under this agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, the Transaction Fee is exclusive of any applicable Taxes from time to time.
- Mamo will receive Purchase Amounts from its third-party payment gateway provider into the Holding Account. Mamo will transfer such amounts, less the applicable Transaction Fees (including Taxes) to the Business. The Business may elect, using the Mamo Sites, whether to receive such amounts into its Settlement Account or Mamo Wallet if Mamo makes such functionality available.
- Mamo typically receives Purchase Amount funds around (3) business days after the Transaction date and aims to reconcile payments to the Business on the following Business Day. However, Mamo does not guarantee such timescales will apply and is not responsible for any delays caused by matters outside its control.
- Mamo is not required to submit any settlement amount to the Business whilst the aggregate of the settlement amount owed is below the minimum settlement threshold operated by Mamo from time to time. If this agreement is terminated and all sums owed to Mamo have been paid by the Business, Mamo will settle any remaining balance, even if such balance is below the threshold.
- Mamo may in its discretion increase or decrease the Transaction Fee and update the Mamo Fee Schedule. All changes to relevant fees will be notified by Mamo to the Business via email or the Mamo Sites. Mamo shall try to provide as much advance notice as we reasonably can and we will always give at least 14 days’ notice. The change will be effective from the date communicated in the notice. If you do not agree to pay any changed fees, you must stop using the relevant Business Service before the date communicated. Any continued use of the relevant Business Service after such date constitutes your agreement to the changed fee.
- You are responsible for determining any and all Taxes and duties assessed, incurred, or required to be collected, paid, or withheld for any reason in connection with the Transaction between the Business and Customer, for ensuring such are included as required in the Purchase Amount and for ensuring that the same are remitted as appropriate to the relevant tax authority. Mamo will not pay on your behalf any Tax chargeable to you or that you are required to collect from your Customers.
- The Business acknowledges that Mamo may appear on the Customers’ credit card or bank statements, but that the Business remains the seller of the goods and services purchased by the Customer and is responsible for, and will ensure that it does, issue to the Customer if applicable a full VAT invoice for each Transaction which complies in all respects with Applicable Laws.
- The Business agrees that it shall not be entitled to receive any interest payment or finance charge or similar from Mamo with respect to any period during which Mamo is temporarily holding Business funds.
- Mamo is not a deposit-taking bank but a payment service provider. Mamo may sub-contract all or part of the services, such as the processing of card payments in compliance with PCI DSS standards, to a third-party supplier.
9. Service Disputes
- Mamo will investigate Service Disputes, provided that the Business provides reasonable assistance to Mamo as requested by Mamo, from time to time. The Business hereby undertakes to respond to and resolve with Mamo any Customer enquiries and claims that Mamo passes on to the Business within a maximum period of (3) business days of the Business's receipt of such enquiries and claims.

10. Confidentiality, Data Protection and Intellectual Property Rights
- The Business will not disclose or cause to be disclosed any confidential and/or proprietary information belonging to Mamo without Mamo’s prior written consent, except to those of its employees, agents, representatives or contractors of the parties who strictly require access to such information to perform under this agreement ("Authorised Personnel") and who are bound by written agreement not to disclose third party confidential or proprietary information disclosed to the Business. The Business acknowledges and agrees that the Business is responsible for any act and/or omission of any Authorised Personnel. The Business will protect Mamo’s confidential and proprietary information by using the same degree of care (and no less than a reasonable degree of care) that it uses to protect its own confidential and proprietary information of a like nature to prevent its unauthorised use, dissemination or publication to any unauthorised third party. The Business shall, and procures that its Authorised Personnel shall, strictly use Mamo’s confidential information for the purposes of performing this agreement.
- The Business will comply with all Applicable Law and reasonable industry standards for ensuring data security and data protection for transactional and Customer information. In particular, the Business will ensure that its Customers are provided with all relevant privacy information, as required by law, and are made aware that the payment processing services described in this agreement are performed by a third party and not by the Business.
- Mamo will process personal data (as defined in the applicable data protection law) relating to the Business in connection with this agreement. We will protect your personal data and maintain its confidentiality including where it is held by an agent or third party on behalf of us and ensure that we have in place and maintain adequate policies, procedures and controls. We will not disclose the Business’s personal data unless: (i) required to do so by Applicable Law or a competent government or regulatory authority; or (ii) it is in order to do so to perform our obligations under this agreement (for example, where our payment gateway provider requires Business information to enable provision of its services) or where we engage a third-party service provider (in which case we shall ensure an appropriate written agreement is in place); or (iii) it is necessary to do so in connection with a potential acquisition of our business, in which case we shall only disclose the minimum necessary information to enable the potential purchaser to assess the value of our business customer base, and will anonymise information as far as possible within such purposes, and we shall ensure such potential purchaser is under a binding obligation of confidentiality; or (iv) the disclosure is made with your prior written consent, which we have requested.
- To the extent Mamo processes personal data relating to Customers in connection with Transactions, it does so as an independent data controller and not as a processor acting on behalf of the Business. Mamo will determine the appropriate means and purposes on which it processes such personal data, in accordance with industry standards applicable to the payment processing industry and Applicable Law.
- Mamo will use reasonable endeavours to keep the Mamo Sites secure but cannot guarantee their security or that communications over the internet are secure. The Business is responsible for ensuring it keeps efficient back-up copies of the Transaction Information and other information in line with its needs and obligations outside Mamo’s environments.

- The Business warrants to Mamo that the Business: (a) will cooperate with Mamo in all matters in relation to the Services; (b) owns and controls all webpages, mobile apps and other accounts on which the Payment Link is used by it; (c) owns, or is lawfully licensed to use, the confidential information, Brand Features and Intellectual Property Rights which it purports to own, or have the authority to use, in connection with the Services, and that its use of the Services will not infringe the Intellectual Property Rights of any third party; and (d) has and will maintain throughout the term of this agreement all rights, authorisations and licences that are required to permit the Business to implement the Services and to conduct its business activities.
- The Business also warrants to Mamo that: (a) it is not engaged in a Prohibited Business; (b) it will comply with all Applicable Laws connected with the Services; (c) the information and details provided in the Application Form are fully accurate; (d) it is not subject to sanctions or otherwise designated on any list of prohibited or restricted parties or owned or controlled by such a party, including but not limited to the lists maintained by the United Nations Security Council, the US Government (e.g. the US Department of Treasury’s Specially Designated Nationals list and Foreign Sanctions Evaders list and the US Department of Commerce’s Entity List), the European Union or its member states, the Central Bank of the United Arab Emirates or any other applicable government authority; (e) it will comply with all Applicable Laws in relation to the sale of Products and its relationship with Customers.
- Mamo and its licensors make no express warranties or representations with respect to the provision of the Services.
- In particular, Mamo and its licensors do not represent or warrant to you that: (a) your use of the Services will meet your requirements; (b) your use of the Services will be uninterrupted, timely, secure or free from error; and (c) any information obtained by you as a result of your use of the Services will be accurate or reliable.
- No conditions, warranties, representations or other terms (including any implied terms as to quality, fitness for purpose or conformance with service descriptions) apply to the Services except to the extent that they are expressly set out in the agreement.

We will reactivate the Payment Link and your Mamo Account credentials, or replace it or them, as applicable, if the reasons for suspension are resolved.
- Mamo will inform you of major operational or security incidents affecting the Service as soon as possible, and the measures taken by us to address and mitigate their effect.

- In addition to any payment obligations under this agreement, any other terms which by their nature are intended to survive termination will survive the termination or expiry of this agreement.
- At the date of termination, any pending Transactions not processed will be cancelled and any Transactions already in progress at the date of termination will be processed as usual, including with respect to remittance obligations and the right of Mamo to charge the Transaction Fee.
