6. Loading funds onto your Omega Account
You may load funds to the Omega Account by way of a bank transfer to Omega. We may allow other methods of loading money into the Account at our discretion.
We will credit your Account only after we receive the funds. The transfer of funds from you or other payers to your Account is provided by third parties and is not part of our Services. We are not responsible for the time it takes for the transfer of funds to clear and settle.
For the purpose of loading funds to your Omega Account, you shall transfer the funds using the correct bank details and transaction reference number as specified by Omega. If you provide inaccurate details, we will not be able to credit your Account and shall not be liable for any loss incurred. However, we will make reasonable efforts to investigate and credit or return incorrect payments to or from your Account. Omega reserves the right to charge additional fees for any such investigation.
Upon receipt of the transferred amount and confirmation of its availability, we will issue the corresponding value of Electronic Money to your Omega Account. Omega reserves the right to establish limits on the amount of money that can be received through our Services, at our discretion, to reduce the risk of fraud or credit issues. To increase your receiving limit, you may be required to provide additional information upon request by Omega.
Omega offers various payment methods for customers to deposit funds into their Omega Accounts, some of which may allow customers to reverse or chargeback a transaction after it has occurred. Customers may only exercise chargeback rights if they have not authorised a payment of funds into their accounts using the relevant payment method. Customers agree not to exercise chargeback rights for other reasons, including disputes with third parties or insufficient customer funds. If Omega investigates a chargeback instructed by the customer, Omega may charge a fee for its services.
Reversals or Chargebacks may be necessary in certain circumstances such as a fraudulent transaction, a mistake in transfer, or a breach of these Terms or Applicable Laws. If a reversal is needed and you do not have enough funds in your Omega Account, you must reimburse us as soon as possible. We will reverse the transaction at the FX Exchange Rate applicable at the time of the reversal or at the original FX Exchange Rate applicable to the transaction, at our discretion.
The Electronic Money issued into the Omega Account is issued by Omega in accordance with Applicable Laws. The Electronic Money in a Customer’s Omeg` Account belongs to the Customer. No other person or entity has any rights over the Electronic Money in a Customer’s Omega Account and the Customer may not assign or transfer its Omega Account to a third party or otherwise grant a third party any rights over the Electronic Money in the Omega Account.
All Customer Money held in a Customer’s Omega Account shall be considered as the Customer's owned funds in electronic form and will not expire other than when the relevant Omega Account is closed (whether because the Customer closes its Omega Account or this Agreement has terminated).
The Customer Money held in the Omega Account does not constitute a deposit, and Omega will not provide any benefits associated with the period for which the Customer Money is held in the Omega Account, such as interest.
When the Customer transfers funds into an Account and/or the Customer receives a payment into an Account, Omega shall place the funds into segregated safeguarding accounts held with authorised credit institutions to safeguard and protect the Customer Money in accordance with Applicable Laws and regulations.
As each Account is an Electronic Money account and not a bank account, the Customer acknowledges that the deposit protection scheme applicable in the jurisdiction does not apply to any Account(s) issued by Omega.
7. Payments Transactions
To execute a Payment Transaction, the Customer must submit a Payment Request by following the on-screen instructions in the Omega Account and correctly entering the Counterparty details, as any incorrect information may result in an unsuccessful or delayed Payment Transaction.
Customers will be required to confirm their consent to the Payment Request with a one-time password received via SMS or other Identity Authentication method, such as multi-factor authentication or push notification. The use of these authentication methods will bind the Customer to the relevant Payment Request.
The Customer must comply strictly with the procedure indicated in the Omega Account and on the Omega website when executing Payment Requests. Omega may charge additional fees if the Customer submits an invalid Payment Request or invalid account details or provides invalid payment transfer data and requests to revise the Payment Request or reverse the Payment Transaction.
The Customer is solely responsible for all Payment Requests and for verifying their accuracy. Omega will not be liable to the Customer or any third party if Omega cannot process the cancellation of a Payment Transaction.
If the Payment Request contains incorrect information, the payment will not be executed unless, in exceptional cases, Omega can correct the details of the Payment Request and effect it under the normal procedure on its own initiative. Omega will only make such corrections if Omega has enough information to do so without any doubt, and Omega is not obliged to verify a Payment Request or make any such correction.
The Customer may only cancel a confirmed Payment Transaction with Omega's consent, which may be given or withheld at Omega's sole discretion. Omega will charge a fee to cancel or reverse any Payment Transaction.
If the amount of Customer Money in the relevant Account is insufficient for the execution of a Payment Request, the Payment Request will not be executed or processed. If the Payment Request has not been executed, it will be cancelled.
In the event that funds are not deposited in the Counterparty Bank Account and are returned to Omega, they will be converted into the currency of the Electronic Money from which they were originally withdrawn. Due to fluctuations in currency exchange rates, the amount of Electronic Money received back into the client's Omega Account may be more or less than the amount originally redeemed to perform the Payment Transaction. Omega shall not be liable for any losses incurred by the client in this regard, except as required by Applicable Laws.
All Payment Transactions, whether outbound or inbound, must not originate from any countries classified as prohibited in Omega Countries List.
8. Foreign Exchange Transactions
You may instruct Omega to make a foreign currency conversion or payment at any time by providing the necessary details as prompted in the Omega Platform. You may exchange Electronic Money in your Omega Account to Electronic Money in another currency using the Foreign Exchange Transaction function in the Omega Platform. The types of Electronic Money which you can purchase and store in your Omega Account are limited to those specified in the Omega Platform, and may be subject to change from time to time without prior notice.
To make an FX Conversion or FX Payment, you must have sufficient funds in your account in the relevant source currency to cover the full amount of the transaction (including Fees). Omega may decline your instructions if you do not have enough funds, if you exceed any applicable limits, or in accordance with clause 11 below. Once Omega is satisfied with your instructions, a confirmation will be issued to you.
Before submitting your request to enter into a Foreign Exchange Transaction, you will be provided with an indicative FX Exchange Rate and amount of Electronic Money you will use to purchase the amount of Electronic Money in your desired currency, the amount and currency of the Electronic Money you wish to purchase, the exchange rate of the Foreign Exchange Transaction as well as any applicable Fees.
You may access the indicative FX Exchange Rate for an FX Conversion through the Omega Platform. The indicative FX Exchange Rate will be quoted to you when you instruct us through the Omega Platform, and the final FX Exchange Rate will be confirmed when we issue a confirmation. Omega will ensure that the confirmed FX Exchange Rate reflects the rate quoted to you as far as reasonably practicable. The rate may be different as the rate may have changed between the time of your instruction and the time we issue the confirmation. You agree that changes to exchange rates come into effect immediately without notice. Changes to the FX Exchange Rate depend on fluctuations in the financial markets outside Omega's control.
Omega will execute Payment Transactions and/or FX Conversions as soon as possible upon receiving your instructions. Generally, funds will be remitted to the payee's payment service provider within 24 hours after we accept your instructions. However, the methods of crediting the funds may be provided by third parties and Omega has no control over the time it may take for the payee's bank or payment provider to credit funds to the payee. Omega expects this process to take less than 5 Working Days, unless required by Applicable Laws.
Omega reserves the right to cancel or delay any FX Conversion or Payment Transaction if the conversion or payment fails due to reasons outside of our control, such as failure of conversion in the sell currency by the Customer or failure of payment in the payment currency by the Customer.
Omega may apply limits to the amount of any one or a series of Payment Transactions, and we will inform you if we do so. These limits may be applied at your request or if Omega reasonably thinks it would help manage the risk of fraud in a proportionate way.
Omega reserves the right to withhold, reject, or delay any transaction in order to comply with Applicable Laws. Omega may not accept your instructions for a Payment Transaction or FX Conversion if no valid exchange rates are available, any relevant anti-money laundering or counter-financing of terrorism conversion limits are exceeded, or you have not complied with your obligations under these terms.
You must maintain a positive balance in your Account at all times. If any transactions or charges take your Account below zero, you must immediately repay the amount owing to Omega without requiring notice. If you do not, Omega may suspend your use of the Account or refuse to provide the Services to you. Omega may also take reasonable steps to recover any amount owing to us and charge you for the cost of these services.
Omega may deduct funds from your Account if you owe us money, including the Fees. You authorise Omega to deduct the Fees and any other amounts that you owe us from time to time from the funds in your Account. If you do not have enough funds in your Account to cover these amounts, Omega will not accept or process your instructions and may refuse to provide the Services to you. Omega may also take reasonable steps to recover the amount owing and charge you for the cost of these services.
Upon confirmation of the details, you must accept FX Transaction on the Omega Platfrom and sole responsibility for using the Foreign Exchange Transaction service. Omega will not be held responsible for any losses incurred as a result of using this service.
Please refer to the Fees for more information. It is your responsibility to keep up-to-date with any changes to the limits and fees applied to any exchanges. Please note that foreign currency exchange rates are subject to external fluctuations beyond our control, and past exchange rate movements should not be regarded as indicative of future trends.
9. Fees and Limits
You are responsible for paying Omega the Fees for the use of the Services. The Fees are outlined in the fee table available on www.omg.one/fees (which forms part of these terms) or as otherwise agreed in writing with Omega.
Depending on the risk score of the Customer, Omega may require the Customer to pay higher fees for some or all of the Services. The Customer will be notified of the Fees after the Customer Due Diligence and Identity Authentication process has been completed.
Omega may change its Fees structure and will notify the user of such changes. Unless the user has made the corporate opt-out pursuant to clause 3.5 above, changes to Omega's fees will take effect at least two months after the notification date. The Customer will be deemed to have accepted the fee changes unless they notify Omega prior to the effective date. If the user does not accept the changes, they may terminate the agreement, and the termination provisions will apply.
The above section does not apply to changes in interest and exchange rates that arise from changes to a reference interest rate or a reference exchange rate set out in the fee section or notified to the user by Omega. Omega will deduct the fees for a specific payment transaction from the relevant account at the time of execution, either from funds received into the account or from funds the Customer attempts to withdraw or send. The user must ensure that there are sufficient funds in the relevant account to cover the fees and execution of the payment transaction; otherwise, Omega may not execute the transaction.
Omega will deduct fees in the same currency as the payment transaction and from the account that is debited or credited for the transaction. If there are insufficient funds in the account, Omega may deduct fees from other accounts of the user in a different currency with applicable exchange rates. Monthly fees will be deducted by default in GBP.
If the Customer owes fees in a currency different from the currency held in their account, Omega will convert the amount in the account to the currency of the fees owed. Omega may freeze any amount in the account that is under dispute with the user or any third party until the dispute is resolved.
The Customer may be liable for additional charges related to an executed Payment Transaction that is equivalent to the charges Omega is required to pay on the Customer’s behalf by the recipient bank and/or its correspondent bank. The amount of such charges varies and is determined according to each bank's internal policies and regulations.
All amounts payable to Omega under these terms:
do not include any taxes or fees that may be in force now or in the future, which the Customer is responsible for paying in full;
must be paid in full without any deduction, withholding, set-off, or counterclaim, unless Applicable Law prohibits it. If you are required by Applicable Law to withhold tax from any payment, you will inform Omega of the requirement immediately, both parties will make all necessary filings to ensure the provisions of any applicable tax treaty applies to the payment, you will pay Omega an additional amount so that Omega receives the full amount which would have been received if no withholding or deduction had been payable; you will pay the full amount required to be deducted or withheld to the relevant authorities when due; and you will provide Omega with an official receipt (or a certified copy) or any other documentation reasonably acceptable to Omega evidencing payment to such authorities without delay.
Omega reserves the right to set limits and restrictions on Omega Transactions, as determined by Omega in its sole discretion and without disclosing the criteria used to determine any such limits and restrictions.
10. Safety and Security

To use the Omega Platform, you (or your Authorised User) must log in using a unique password and any multi-factor authentication required by Omega.

The storage and management of passwords are the responsibility of the Authorised User, and we cannot be held accountable for any failure on their part to keep this information safe and secure.
Authorised Users are prohibited from allowing third parties to access their account(s) or recording their security information in a way that enables fraudulent activity. The Customer is also not allowed to disclose or share their security information with third parties.

You may also not be able to claim a refund if you have breached these terms, given incorrect instructions for the transaction, or failed to comply with your obligations to use them in accordance with these terms.
If it has been confirmed that a Payment Transaction was not authorised or was incorrectly initiated or executed by us and we were notified in a timely manner, we will refund the full amount of the payment transaction.
If you are a Consumer, Micro-enterprise, or Charity and your account or login information and passwords are used without your authorization, you will be liable for the first GBP £35 of any unauthorised transaction if Omega believes you should have been aware of the unauthorised use. If you are a Corporate Customer, you will be liable for any losses arising from unauthorised transactions if Omega believes you should have been aware of the unauthorised use.

Omega will not refund you if you have acted fraudulently or recklessly or if you have compromised the security of your account or the Omega Platform with intent or negligence.
The User will bear all losses incurred as a result of an unauthorised payment transaction that was executed in violation of this agreement or due to their own fault, act, or omission. This includes any failure to promptly notify us of any unauthorised user access or protect their identity authentication measures or passwords as required by the Applicable Laws or regulations.
