We and the parking operators will not provide cash refunds.

You are responsible for all authorized uses of your Account. Applicable law may protect you from liability for unauthorized purchases. You understand that your Account is not a credit account and is not protected by laws covering credit accounts.
Tell us AT ONCE if you believe that your Account has been used by an unauthorized person. Telephoning us is the best way to KEEP YOUR POSSIBLE LOSSES DOWN. IF YOU BELIEVE THAT YOUR PHONE HAS BEEN STOLEN, OR THAT SOMEONE HAS TRANSFERRED OR MAY IMPROPERLY CHARGE THE ACCOUNT WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION, CONTACT THE APPROPIATE CUSTOMER CENTRE OR EMAIL US AT email@example.com. IF YOU FAIL TO NOTIFY US PROMPTLY AND YOU ARE GROSSLY NEGLIGENT OR FRAUDULENT IN THE HANDLING OF THE ACCOUNT, YOU COULD INCUR ADDITIONAL CHARGES.
If your phone or Payment Mechanism has been reported lost, stolen or otherwise tampered with, we may close the Account to keep your and our losses down.
12. Notice Containing Information About Your Right to Dispute Errors
In case of errors or questions about electronic transactions on the Account, contact our Customer Care Center or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you can, including if you think the statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transaction listed on the statement or receipt. Under most circumstances, we will connect you to the facility operator whose charges resulted in the error or transaction you have questions with. Disputes involving operators of parking facilities will be resolved pursuant to their procedures.
For disputes that we (rather than a facility operator) are involved in, we must hear from you no later than 30 days after the transaction in question has been made available to you on the online statement.
The following information must be contained in that notice:
- Your name, user name and phone number or numbers used for the Account.
- Description of the error or the transaction you are unsure about and explanation as clearly as possible of why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.
- The amount in local currency of the suspected error.
If you tell us verbally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days.
Generally, we will tell you the results of our investigation within 10 business days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 calendar days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will re-credit your Payment Mechanism within 10 business days for the amount you think is in error so that you will have use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. Because we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing, if we do not receive written confirmation of your verbal notice within 10 business days, we will not re-credit your Payment Mechanism.
If we decide there was no error, we will send you a written explanation within three business days, after we finish our investigation. You may ask for copies of documents that we used in our investigation.
13. Dispute Resolution and Confidential Arbitration
Any dispute relating in any way to the services offered by PayByPhone not resolved in accordance with the preceding Section 12 shall be submitted to confidential arbitration in Vancouver, British Columbia, except that, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate PayByPhone’s intellectual property rights, PayByPhone may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any Provincial or Federal court in the Province of British Columbia, and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts. Arbitration under this agreement shall be conducted under the rules then prevailing of the Canadian Arbitration Association conducted by a single arbitrator. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under this Agreement shall be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to this Agreement, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise.
