1. About DaoPay GmbH
DaoPay GmbH with its registered office at Hackhofergasse 5/14, A-1190 Vienna, Austria, Company Number: FN 364645v, is a licensed payment service provider.
DaoPay GmbH is subject to supervision by the Austrian Financial Market Authority (”FMA“) and to the legal regulations for payment services (in Austria the Payment Services Act “ZaDiG” which transposes the Payment Services Directive of the European Union into Austrian law). This regulation makes payments across Europe more transparent and efficient. The license is only provided to payment companies that comply with a wide set of rules and obligations that ensure quality and stability of the payment sector.
2. About DaoPay
DaoPay GmbH offers a simple licensed method of payment („DaoPay“) via a “Pay By Phone” payment system. DaoPay enables end-customers to pay instantly through their phone provider (mobile or landline) e.g. with a simple phone call or easily by SMS, using the IVR, Premium-SMS or billing gateway technology to charge end-customers to their phone bill. The DaoPay system uses different phone payment methods in more than 60 countries and is therefore one of the leading phone payment service providers.
The system is used by merchants offering different content (e.g. music, online games, software downloads, online newspapers, virtual goods and other internet services) to enable phone payments to their customer base. Customers of such merchants have the option to pay for (virtual) products provided by merchants by calling a premium rate number and staying connected until the price for the chosen product/service has been paid. Furthermore, DaoPay GmbH provides payment via Premium-SMS or through billing gateway. The goods or services purchased are then charged to the end-customer’s phone bill.
3. End-Customer Policy
The use of the DaoPay Service requires an SMS-enabled mobile phone capable of and authorized by the applicable carrier to use premium SMS text services or billing gateway/wap billing or a landline phone authorized to use call premium rate numbers (the “Phone Device”). If you are an individual, you must be either (a) at least 18 years old or (b) have been authorized by your parent or guardian to use the DaoPay Service. You represent that you are the owner or authorized user of the Phone Device and are responsible for any charges associated and/or have the bill payer’s permission to use the DaoPay Service to pay for goods or services. DaoPay GmbH as a licensed payment service provider is obliged to verify the legitimacy of the payment of the end-customer. As the usage of one-time numbers or virtual numbers do not allow this form of verification, such numbers are excluded from services of DaoPay GmbH.
Charges for the usage of the DaoPay Service are made via your phone bill, or deducted from your prepaid account via premium SMS message(s), via your provider’s billing gateway/wap billing or via calls made to premium rate numbers (the “DaoPay Charges”). Amounts payable will be reflected in one or more messages transmitted to your phone. Your confirmation of the DaoPay Charges via a text message or response performed manually by electing to continue with the payment transaction will be deemed further evidence of your authorization to have the DaoPay Charges charged to and reflected on your account with the carrier. The DaoPay Charges are separate and apart from any other charges that may be assessed by your wireless carrier for messages sent to or received from DaoPay. Standard message charges may apply (part of Terms and Conditions from your carrier). You are responsible for any fees or other charges that your carrier may charge for any related data, call or message services, including without limitation for SMS, unless noted otherwise. Under no circumstances will DaoPay GmbH or its affiliates be responsible for any wireless email or text messaging charges incurred by a user or by a person that has unauthorized access to a user’s wireless device or telephone.

6. Dispute with Merchants
If you have any disputes about purchases you have made with DaoPay, you should settle these with the relevant merchant. We are not responsible for the quality, safety, legality or any other aspect of any goods or services paid with DaoPay.
Once you have started a payment transaction we cannot stop it. Payments which have been initiated but not finished for whatever reason (e.g. interrupted call, wrong order number, prepaid card out of credit) can be finalized within 35 (thirty-five) days. For this period your order number remains valid and you are able to finish your payment transaction. Refunds after this period are at DaoPay GmbH‘s sole discretion and might be subject to a handling fee.
We may apply and change spending limits to your payments for different periods of time.
8. Right of revocation or cancellation
