In compliance with the Payment Services Directive 2 (“PSD 2”) My EU Pay will forward all payments to the safeguarding account the moment funds are received. In cases where MEP is processing payments through other EMIs that cannot safeguard funds, the process of getting the money from a credit institution to the EMI and back again could be time consuming.
MEP speeds up this process by depositing money with the credit institution directly, and topping up and debiting the segregated client account as required to ensure that the money in the segregated client account matches the amount of “relevant funds”.
My EU Pay’s safeguarding policy and details of the ring-fencing mechanism of the said accounts shall be provided by My EU Pay to Clients upon request.
All vIBANs are issued on top of the safeguarding account. All funds sent through vIBANs are automatically sent to the safeguarding account.
Clients’ funds are safeguarded and protected against any claims from creditors of My EU Pay, including enforcement and insolvency proceedings.

Unless otherwise required under applicable laws this duty of confidentiality will remain in effect for the duration of the Client's subscription to the Payment Service and for five (5) years following the termination of this Agreement.
This duty of confidentiality does not apply to information that:
All information saved in My EU Pay's computer databases regarding Payment Orders and Payment Transactions have, until proven otherwise, the same probative value as a hand-signed paper copy, both in terms of their content and the date and time they were produced and/or received. These unalterable, secure, and reliable traces are embedded and saved within My EU Pay's computer systems.
Documents held by My EU Pay that replicate this information, as well as copies or reproductions of documents produced by My EU Pay, have the same probative value as the originals, unless proven otherwise.

Clients are made aware that criminals are experts at impersonating people, organisations, and various authorities, including the police. This could be done online, via email or through telephone calls. My EU Pay would like to highlight some of the ways Clients can avoid becoming victims of fraud.
