3. Significant Risks of the Cashwo Digital Wallet
The significant risks of the Cashwo Digital Wallet are:
unauthorized transactions can happen if the mobile device you are using to access the Cashwo Digital Wallet, via the Cashwo app is lost or stolen, if your Mobile device passcode, or your Digital Wallet passcode is revealed to an unauthorized person, as a result of fraud, or if you breach the terms and conditions of the Cashwo Digital Wallet Services outlined in this PDS or the terms and conditions;
you might not be able to get your money back if unauthorized transactions or mistaken transactions occur. The more funds you transfer to your Cashwo Digital Wallet the more you could lose due to an unauthorized transaction;
due to equipment errors, malfunctions or equipment being used incorrectly, the same transaction may be processed more than once or transactions may not be processed at all;
If the network enabling the use of the Cashwo Digital Wallet is unavailable, you may not be able to perform transactions or get information using the Cashwo Digital Wallet;
merchants may, at their discretion, refuse to accept the Cashwo Digital Wallet as a method of payment. You should always check with the merchant that it will accept the Cashwo Digital Wallet before purchasing any goods or services:
you will not earn interest on any available balance that is stored on your Cashwo Digital Wallet; and
the Financial Claims Scheme (see https://www.fcs.gov.au/) does not apply in relation to your Cashwo Digital Wallet or your available balance. If PayAny1 (trading as ‘Cashwo’) fails, any available balance held in your Cashwo Digital Wallet will not be protected by the FCS, and you may lose all or part of your available balance. The risks associated with the Cashwo Digital Wallet may therefore be increased when you transfer large amounts of money into the Cashwo Digital Wallet.
