Version 1.0 - Valid from 8th February 2021
The general terms and conditions apply to all agreements between you and Lunar Bank ("Lunar", "we", "us"), unless otherwise explicitly stated in a separate agreement. Here, you can read about the bank's and your rights and obligations, and general information about the customer relationship.
The general terms and conditions also contain information required under the Norwegian Financial Contracts Act (in Norwegian: lov av 25.06.1999 nr. 46 om finansavtaler og finansoppdrag)
Particular rules apply to, for instance, payment cards. These rules are provided when the product is established and can be found in the app at any time. For most business areas, detailed rules will apply to complement these general rules in the general terms and conditions.
We may change the general terms and conditions without notice if the change is beneficial to you. Any other changes will be made with three months' notice.
You can always find the applicable general terms and conditions under "Agreements" in the app or on our website www.lunar.app.
When establishing a customer relationship with Lunar, you as a customer must document your name and Norwegian civil registration number. This can be done by sending a copy of an official document such as a passport or driving licence. In order to be digitally established in Lunar, you must have EU/EEA citizenship, be resident within the EU/EEA, and have a valid BankID.
In the event that the above requirements cannot be met, you can only become a customer in Lunar by showing up in person by appointment, after which your application will be processed by an employee of the bank.
All customers must be at least 18 years of age.
Lunar Bank’s deposit and lending rates are floating unless otherwise expressly agreed. That the interest rate is floating means that the bank can change the interest rate at any time, subject to the notice periods set out below.
The interest rate is subject to change without notice if the change is beneficial to you. With regard to interest rates calculated on your deposits in Lunar Bank, we may change the interest rates without notice due to changes in the applicable reference rate (CIBOR). Otherwise, the interest rate may only be changed by us upon a two months’ notice in accordance with section 27 of these terms and conditions.
With regard to credit agreements (if applicable), Lunar Bank may change interest rates with six weeks' notice. Nonetheless, Lunar Bank may change the interest rate pertaining to a credit agreement with one month's notice if the change is due to material changes in:
The interest rate depends on the type of account. The interest rates applicable at any time for each account type and product can be found on Lunar Bank's price list and at www.lunar.app.
You will be notified of any changes in the interest rate via the email address you have provided the bank and possibly via advertising in the daily press.
The interest day (the value date) is the day on which the deposit or withdrawal affects the calculation of interest on an account. When a deposit is made into an account, the interest day is the same day as the day when the deposit was made. When withdrawing from an account, the interest day is the day when the withdrawal was made. When interest is accrued to the account, the interest day is the first banking day after the interest accrual. We calculate interest daily based on the number of calendar days.
Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, the day after Ascension Day, Constitution Day, Christmas Eve, and New Year's Day are not banking days at Lunar Bank.
For deposits, the interest on deposits is accrued monthly unless otherwise specified in the account agreement. The interest rate on loans shall be accrued monthly unless otherwise specified in the credit or loan agreement. The interest is calculated in arrears, and the accrued interest is found in the transaction summary in the Lunar app and in the account statement.
We may change the rules on the calculation of interest at any time with three months' notice. You will be notified of the changes in the Lunar app.
Lunar Bank reserves the right at any time to change the limits on the amounts of deposits, interest on deposits and fees on deposits above the permitted limits. See the price list for the applicable limits, interest and fees at any time when the limits are exceeded.
We may charge fees for services and to answer questions from government agencies about your circumstances. The fees are charged either as a fixed amount for the service or as a percentage or an hourly rate related to the volume of services. The calculation methods may be combined. We provide information about the general fees in the Lunar app, at www.lunar.app or upon request. Information about other fees will be disclosed upon request.
We will send an annual overview of all service fees you have paid to the bank. Also, we provide information about fees paid free of charge in the Lunar app at any time. You are required to ensure that you have access to the app.
We may reduce service charges at any time without notice.
We may increase fees for services that you continually pay as part of your customer relationship in Lunar, with two months’ notice.
For business reasons, we may introduce fees for services for which we have not previously charged. Such a fee may be introduced with three months' notice if the change is due to conditions related to market, cost, regulatory business, competition, risk, or earnings. You can see examples of such conditions in section 3 above. The list is not exhaustive.
We can always introduce and increase fees for stand-alone services and, in general, for new agreements.
You will receive information about changing fees and the introduction of new fees via email and in the Lunar app.
A payment account is an account created to complete payment transactions.
We may reject a payment order at any time if there are insufficient funds in your account from which the payment is withdrawn. We may withhold a payment order at any time in certain cases, such as where a sanctioned party is included in the payment flow or if fraud is suspected.
If you have overdrawn an account, are in arrears or use the account in violation of the agreement with Lunar Bank, the bank may require overdraft interest, commission or default interest, a fee for sending account statements and reminder letters, and payment of legal expenses for collection, etc. The cost of a reminder fee can be found in the reminder letters by Lunar Bank and on the price list, at www.lunar.app or disclosed upon request. The overdraft rate and overdraft commission are stated on Lunar's price list, at www.lunar.app or upon request.
The completion time is the time that elapses from an amount being withdrawn from a payment account until it is deposited into an account in the recipient's financial institution. Lunar Bank shall ensure that the transaction has been completed the course of the first banking day Lunar Bank received the payment order.
If a payment order is received towards the end of a banking day, it is considered received the following business day. You can get information regarding the deadline for receiving payment orders by contacting us.
At www.lunar.app, you can find information about the actual exchange rate or reference rate when a currency exchange is part of a transfer. Changes to the set exchange rate may occur without notice.
To the extent that new or amended government regulation or practice results in a service provided by Lunar Bank to you becoming subject to new taxes or fees, and to the extent that its permissible under applicable law, we reserve the right to collect these taxes or fees directly from you without notice.
This also applies in the case of amendment or termination of existing taxes or fees.
We provide daily information about payment transactions in the Lunar app free of charge. You are required to continually check payment transactions in the Lunar app.
If you do not recognise some of the transactions, please contact us via the app as soon as possible after you become aware of the unauthorised transaction. When assessing whether you have contacted us in a timely manner, attention will be paid to your obligation to continually check payment transactions.
In any event, objections concerning payment transactions covered by the Norwegian Financial Contracts Act must be made within 13 months of completion of the transaction.
We will notify you of suspected actual instances of abuse or security threats, including if we become aware of such. For example, the notification can be performed by telephone, by notification in the Lunar app, or by other similarly secure procedure.
When there is more than one account holder to the account, the account holders hereby empower each account holder to dispose of the account alone. If one of the account holders dies, we are entitled to block the account until the Probate Court has ruled on what should happen to the deceased's estate. If an account holder revokes his or her power of attorney to other account holders, we reserve the right to also block the account until the account relationship is clarified. If there are several account holders to the account, account holders are jointly and severally liable to the bank for the current withdraw on the account.
Lunar Bank may not set off an amount against the credit balance of your account or against any funds that we have received to execute a payment order, with the exception of claims fallen due deriving from your account relationship.
Further, Lunar Bank may not undertake a set-off against, means of payment that Lunar Bank keeps available for carrying out payment assignments. Lunar Bank may exercise its right of retention on the same conditions that apply for set-off.
The regulation above, does not prevent the establishment of any voluntary or forced right to security in the account in accordance with prevailing legislation.
You may terminate the customer relationship at any time without notice.
Lunar Bank may terminate our customer relationship in writing without a prior written notice, provided that you are in material breach of these terms and conditions. The following factors will be considered a material breach (non-exhaustive list):
We may, at any time, block your access to our app, products, and services if you do not provide us with information pertaining to anti-money laundering or if we have reasonable grounds to suspect that your account is being used for money-laundering purposes or other acts punishable pursuant to applicable penal law.
When the customer relationship ends, we may terminate warranty and guarantee obligations and release ourselves from other obligations entered into on your behalf, including foreign currency liabilities. You are obligated to release Lunar Bank from all commitments entered into on your behalf and must provide such security as we deem to be necessary.
When any party terminates account products where a monthly fee is paid and nothing else is specified, the notice period is current month + 1 month, after which the fee and all related services and terms cease.
