2. mango user
A mango user is any individual who uses mango to travel, including the individual for whom the mango account was originally set up. We refer to the mango user, as "you" or "your" in these terms.
3. about these terms
These terms govern the issue and use of mango and all credit on your mango account. These terms also govern your account on the portal within the app. These terms represent a contract between you and us with respect to your use of mango and the associated online portal and app. By possessing, purchasing or topping-up mango, and by using mango, you signify your agreement to these terms.
4. what is mango
mango is a travel payment mechanism, issued under the brand "mango", which stores an amount of credit or is linked to a credit source. This credit may be used to pay for travel on certain public transport services, and to pay for parking and other services, as determined by us from time to time, including as detailed in these terms below. Deductions from this credit are made whenever you use mango to pay, and are completed at the end of each day following the accumulation of transactions in that day.
5. validity period
mango and all credit on mango remain valid until two (2) years from the later of the last top-up of credit to your mango account or the last journey or other service you paid for using mango. In other words, if you do not top-up or use mango for 2 years, it will cease to be valid. When your mango account ceases to be valid, we may block its further use, and the current credit balance on it at that time will be forfeited and cancelled, so that we will not have to pay you the monetary value of it.

9. services mango may be used for
Credit on mango may only be used to pay for on the services detailed below, and mango may not be used to purchase anything else: -
9.1 our bus services
You may use mango to pay for travel on those of our bus services which we advertise that mango is available for. We may change the range of bus services that accept mango payments at any time and from time to time without informing you. Some routes may be operated partly by us and partly by a third-party operator, and in such case, mango will only be available for journeys on that route provided by us unless we specifically state otherwise. When you use mango to pay for a bus journey a separate contract of carriage comes into effect for that journey, on and subject to our conditions of carriage which are available at www.trentbarton.co.uk or on request. Where a bus service offers a 'No Quibble Money Back Guarantee', this extends to customers using mango to pay for a journey on that bus service. To obtain a refund for a journey you should contact our customer services team. The amount charged to the mango account for the journey will be re-credited to the mango account within five working days of receipt of the claim by us. Any claim must be submitted within 28days from the initial date of travel relating to that claim. Any claims submitted later than 28days, from the initial date of travel relating to that claim, will not be refunded.
9.2 car parking and other services
You may use mango to pay for car parking and such other travel or associated services as we may enable the mango to be used for from time to time in the future. We will specify at such time any terms governing use of mango to pay for such travel or associated services at the time such use is enabled, either by an update to these mango terms and conditions, or by general notice on our mango web page, or by e-mail, or app notification to you. When you use mango to pay for any such car parking or other travel or associated services, a separate contract comes into effect between you and the provider of such parking or other services, on and subject to the terms and conditions of that provider, which will be available on request from the provider. You must contact the provider to obtain a copy of those terms. You acknowledge and agree that trentbarton are not party to that contract and are not liable for that contract or any parking or other services provided. Your mango contract with us solely relates to the use of credit to pay for those services.
10. mango account (credit) balance
10.1 legal status
The balance on your mango account is electronic money which legally amounts to a claim you have against us for the equivalent monetary value of that credit, subject to these terms, EXCEPT THAT, where you are provided any credit for free (for instance, on a promotional deal), that credit will not be redeemable for money, and it will be assumed that that credit has been spent first when mango is used to pay for anything after the date of provision of that free credit.
10.2 validity period
Any value on your mango account will be forfeited and cancelled if your mango account ceases to be valid under section 5.
10.3 topping-up locations
You may top-up the credit on your mango account at any time through our online/app portal or by contacting our customer services team in one of our travel shops.
10.4 payment for credit
You must pay to us in cash or cleared funds the monetary equivalent of all credit which you purchase for your mango account. We will not be obliged to issue any credit for your mango account until we receive such funds, and we may cancel any credit on your mango account if we do not receive such funds.
10.5 top-up timescales
It may take up to twenty-four hours, from receipt of funds, for any top-up credit to reach your mango account and be usable to pay for travel.
10.6 minimums and maximums
We may specify and change from time to time, without having to inform you, the minimum amount of credit that may be added to a mango account in a top-up and the maximum value that a mango account can hold. As at the publication date of these terms, the minimum top-up value is £10 and the maximum amount of credit the account can hold is £250.
10.7 negative balances
We may at our discretion allow your mango account to enter a negative balance, up to such amount as we may determine, subject to such conditions as we may determine, with or without notice to you. Where we do allow negative balances, then, if you have low credit left on your account, you will be able to take one more journey which will take your mango account credit into a negative balance. You should then top-up your mango account as soon as possible so that you can continue to use it. As at the publication date of these terms, provided that there is at least 1p credit on the account, we allow you to go into negative balance up to the amount of one further day’s travel, but we will not allow you to go into negative balance paying for parking or any other services. A negative balance amounts to the provision of credit to you. No interest charges will be levied against you for such credit, and you will be obliged to clear any negative balance, by topping-up your account, within 28 days of the date you made the journey that led to the negative balance. If you fail to clear a negative balance within 28 days, we reserve the right to deduct an administration charge from your account of up to £10.
10.8 fraud checks
You acknowledge that we may ask a third-party to provide a credit/fraud report on the basis of the credit/debit card details and other personal details you provide when you pay for credit to be added to your mango account.
10.9 redemption of credit
Provided that the credit has not been invalidated under section 5, and it is not free credit, as detailed in section 10.1, you may at any time have the credit on your mango account redeemed for the monetary equivalent you paid for that credit. When you make a request to redeem the credit, you warrant that you were the individual who originally paid for that credit, or that you have validly been gifted or purchased that mango account and its credit from someone you know personally, and we may ask you for reasonable proof of this before providing a redemption. You may not redeem any credit on the mango account which was provided to you for free, including as part of any promotion. We may refuse a redemption request if it is made within 90 days of a previous redemption request, unless you can demonstrate good reason for it. We may refuse a redemption request, and freeze a mango account, if we suspect that any redemption request is being made for fraudulent purposes or in connection with any crime, until we have been able to reasonably establish with you that this is not the case, and we may report the matter to the police. If you want to redeem any credit, please contact our customer services team, and we will aim to comply with this request within 7 days. You will be required to provide such information as we may reasonably request to support your claim. We will send you a cheque or make an electronic transfer for the monetary value of the mango account credit at the point of redemption. We reserve the right to charge an administration fee for each redemption of credit transaction up to a value of £10. Any administration fee will be deducted from the credit being redeemed prior to it being settled.
You are not entitled to any interest or any other benefit on the credit held on a mango account from time to time.
11. using mango
11.1 scan-on & scan-off
When you use mango to pay for travel, mango operates by recording your journey from the point you scan-on to the point you scan-off the service. "scan-on" means placing your app beneath the QR code reader at the point of boarding the service, and "scan-off" means placing your app beneath the QR code reader at the point of alighting the service. The service provider then deducts from your mango account credit equal to the amount of the applicable advertised single fare for that journey when paid for using mango. If there is insufficient credit, then you will not be permitted to board that service using your mango , subject to section 10.7(negative Balances). If you board without scanning-on, you may be subject to a penalty fare from the service provider, and you may be prosecuted. If you fail to "scan-off" then there will be deducted from the mango account the fare for a single journey from the point of scan-on to the final destination of that service. If there is a fault with your mango or a QR code reading device at the time of boarding, then you will be required to purchase a separate ticket for your journey on the bus, you should not board any service until you have purchased a ticket. If there is a fault on QR code reading device on alighting, then you may call our customer services team, and they may, depending on the circumstances, refund any over-payment to the mango account.
11.2 scan-on / scan-off on bus services
To use your mango on a bus, it must first be scanned-on at the time you board the bus. This involves placing your app beneath the QR code reader on the bus, which is normally on the ticket machine by the bus driver. A successful scan-on will be indicated by a confirmation from the scan-on device. You must then scan-off when you alight from the bus, to record the end of your journey. This involves placing your app beneath the QR code reader on the bus, which is normally on the ticket machine by the bus driver. If you forget to scan-off, then you will be charged as if you had continued your journey to the final destination of the bus service.
11.3 journey data
We record all scan-on and scan-off data concerning journeys on mango, including date, time, service, stop and fare. Where such data relates to a third-party service, we may share that data with the provider of that service. We keep a record of all journey data for at least 2 years, or such longer period as we may decide in our discretion.
12.1 set by service provider
All fares paid for using mango are set by the provider of the service on which you are travelling, and you should consult the applicable published tariffs from the provider in question. We, as mango account issuer, are not responsible for those fares, and you agree that there may be deducted from your mango account such fare as is charged from time to time by the service provider. If the service provider deducts too low a fare, the balance may at any later time be deducted from your mango account. If an incorrect fare is deducted which is too high, you must obtain a refund directly from the service provider, and we, as mango account issuer, will not be obliged to provide a refund to you.
The service provider may from time to time specify a maximum cap to apply for all journeys undertaken by you using your mango in a day, week or other period, and/or in a geographical area or on a particular route. These caps are separate per service provider, so that journeys with one service provider will not necessarily count towards journeys with another service provider.
13. mango account
Within the mango app you may register an account in your name. Any account registered is specific to the user and cannot be shared with multiple people.
Your mango account will enable you to, register an existing MANGO card, review the credit balance on your mango account, top-up your mango account, and review recent journeys which you have taken using mango.
13.3 log-in details
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your username and password ("Login Details") for your mango account and for preventing unauthorised access to your mango account. You must keep your Login Details secret and take all reasonable precautions to prevent unauthorised or fraudulent use of them. You must not disclose your Login Details to any other person or record your Login Details in any way that may result in them becoming known to another person. You agree that you are responsible for and answerable for all activities that occur within your mango account through your Log-In Details, unless trentbarton are proved to be at fault. You should inform us immediately if you have any reason to believe that your Login Details have become known to anyone else, or if the Login Details are being, or are likely to be, used in an unauthorised manner.
14. lost, stollen or damaged
If your device on which your mango account is registered lost, stolen or damaged, you must advise our customer services team immediately (contact details above). Your mango account will then first be frozen within our systems, as a precautionary measure. You will be liable for all use made of, and credit spent using your mango account, until midnight on the day it is reported to us. We may ask you for reasonable information to support your claim, including proof of your identity and address, evidence to support that you are the valid account holder, and details of the circumstances of loss, theft or damage. On receipt of the above, and subject to our reasonably being satisfied that the claim is genuine, we will unfreeze your account and allow access to sign in on another device. In making any claim, you warrant that your claim is a genuine one. An administration charge may be payable by you for any requirement for a new account, which we may deduct from the credit balance on the transferring account.
15. variation of these terms
We may at any time unilaterally vary these terms (including by adding, removing or changing any terms) and the functionality of our mango account, in any way at our sole discretion, provided that no such variation will materially and unreasonably adversely affect your rights under these terms to redeem any credit on your mango account for its monetary value. We may give notice of such change on our mango webpage or in your mango account. If we have your contact details, we may also inform you of any such change by such method as we may reasonably decide. We will specify details of the terms changed, and the date on which the change will be effective. If we do not have your contact details, or we have incorrect contact details, then you will be deemed to have accepted the change when it is implemented by us, and we will not be required to notify you of it.
16.1 general right
We may stop your mango account and terminate your right to use mango or your mango account at any time for any reason without having to give you prior warning. In such case, if we have your contact details, we will inform you of this as soon as possible with our reasons. In any other case, we may prevent further use or top-up of the mango account, but will, permit you to request a redemption of the credit balance under section 10.9, subject to the terms of that section.
16.2 improper behaviour
If any funds paid to us for any credit on a mango account are claimed back from us from any payment provider, or we have reasonable grounds to suspect that, or receive any allegation that, mango is being used for the purposes of or in connection with any crime, money laundering or terrorism, or that any credit has been paid for using the proceeds of a fraud, proceeds of crime, or stolen money, , we may freeze the mango account immediately, and block its further use and any redemption of the credit, until we have been able to resolve the position with you and reasonably establish with you that this is not the case.
