§ 3 General Obligations of the User; Deletion of the account (Livello app)
(1) Livello supports contactless payments. To gain access to our services, users must hold their NFC-enabled card close to the card reader. Giro/credit cards work with a pre-authorization (= reservation amount). It is first checked whether the presented credit card can be charged with the amount to be booked. If so, the requested amount is reserved and the doors open for self-service. After closing the door, the final total is calculated, the purchase value is posted and the remaining amount is released (partial cancellation). The duration of the release of the remaining amount depends on the respective bank. It usually takes a few minutes, but in rare cases it can take up to several days. It should be noted that the user can only be charged the pre-authorization amount for the purchase, even if the user removes a higher value of goods. The user is not entitled to withdraw products with a higher value of goods that exceeds the pre-authorization amount. For small amounts (max. €50) no additional authorization by entering a PIN or signature is required. However, many banks require giro cards to allow a maximum of five consecutive payments without entering a pin before the customer has to enter a pin again. Unfortunately, it is not possible to enter a PIN at the Livello card terminal.
(2) NFC-enabled means of payment include debit card, credit card, Apple Pay and Google Pay. Usage is completely anonymous.
