This provision will continue after our relationship ends.

15.8 What happens if you owe us money? In the event you are liable for any amounts owed to us for whatever reason, we may immediately remove such amounts from your Notional Balance (if available). If there are insufficient funds in your Notional Balance to cover your liability, you agree to repay the outstanding amount to us immediately on demand along with any applicable fees and interest. In the event that you do not repay the outstanding amount then, without prejudice to any other rights we may have, we reserve the right to collect your debt to us by using any Received Funds and otherwise you agree to reimburse us through other means. We may also recover amounts you owe us through other collection avenues, including, without limitation, through the use of a debt collection agency. We may recover all reasonable costs or expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses) incurred in connection with the enforcement of this Agreement.

15.9 Release. If you have a dispute with any other Wise Account holder or a third party that you send money to or receive money from using the Services, you release Wise from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. In entering into this release, you expressly waive any protections (whether statutory or otherwise) to the extent permitted under applicable law that would otherwise limit the coverage of this release to include only those claims which you may know or suspect to exist in your favour at the time of agreeing to this release.

15.10 Disclaimer of Warranty. The Services are provided "As-Is" "Where Is" and "Where Available" and without any representation or warranty, whether express, implied or statutory. Wise specifically disclaims any implied warranties of title, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement. We disclaim all warranties with respect to the Services to the fullest extent permissible under applicable law, including the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement and title.

15.11 Availability of Services. We will try to make sure our Services are available to you when you need them. However, we do not guarantee that our Services will always be available or be uninterrupted. We may suspend, withdraw, discontinue or change all or any part of our Service without notice. We will not be liable to you if for any reason our Services are unavailable at any time or for any period.

15.12 You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to our Services. If you have granted permission to a third party to access your account, we may refuse access to that third party if we are concerned about unauthorised or fraudulent access by that third party. We will give you notice if we do this, either before or immediately after we refuse access, unless notifying you would be unlawful or compromise our reasonable security measures.

16. Our right to make changes

16.1 We may change this Agreement by giving you prior written notice. This notice will be provided either by email or displaying a notice in the App or in our Webpage. If we do this, you can terminate this Agreement immediately by providing written notice to us (see clause 7). If we do not hear from you, you will be considered as having accepted the proposed changes and they will apply to you from the effective date specified on the notice.

16.2 In some instances, we may change this Agreement immediately. Despite section 16.1, changes to this Agreement which do not require prior notification and are (1) more favourable to you; (2) required by law; (3) related to the addition of a new service, extra functionality to the existing Service; or (4) changes which neither reduce your rights nor increase your responsibilities, will come into effect immediately if they are stated in the change notice. Changes to exchange rates shall come into effect immediately without notice and you shall not have the right to object to such a change.

17. Complaints

17.1 If you have any complaints about us or our Services, you may contact us following our customer complaint procedure.

18. Other important terms

18.1 Third Party rights. This Agreement is between you and us. Except as provided in section 6.4, no other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end or make any changes to this Agreement.

18.2 Assignment. You may not transfer, assign, mortgage, charge, subcontract, declare a trust over or deal in any other manner with any or all of your rights and obligations under this Agreement without our prior written consent. We reserve the right to transfer, assign or novate this Agreement or any right or obligation under this Agreement at any time without your consent. This does not affect your rights to close your Wise Account under section 7.

18.3 Severability. Each of the paragraphs of this Agreement operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

18.4 Enforcement. Even if we delay in enforcing this Agreement, we can still enforce it later. If we delay in asking you to do certain things or in taking action, it will not prevent us from taking steps against you at a later date.

18.5 Entire Agreement. This Agreement supersedes and extinguishes all previous agreements between you and Wise, whether written or oral, relating to its subject matter.

18.6 Governing law. This Agreement is governed by Indian law. Any dispute between you and us in connection with the Services and/or this Agreement may be brought in the courts of India.
