  • We forward your request for data to your bank and the information is compiled in the Tink-App as soon as possible thereafter. 

  • The information is categorised automatically to give you an easy-to-understand overview of your finances.

 

2.1 The account information service means that you, in the Tink-App, are provided with compiled information in respect of one or several accounts that you have with one or several banks or payment service providers. The Services is activated when you give Tink access to your login details at your bank or other payment service provider of your choice ("External Login Details") in accordance with Tink’s instructions in the Tink-App. When doing so, you give your explicit consent to and instruct Tink to use your External Login Details on your behalf to download information from the external user accounts at the bank or payment service provider you choose to your Tink-Account and agree that such third parties provide Tink with the information for use in the Service in accordance with these Terms. You are responsible for ensuring that you are entitled to use the External Login Details and the Information in the Service.

2.2 When you have approved the downloading of the information to your Tink-Account, a corresponding request is sent immediately to your bank. The processing time for the compilation of the information varies depending on how long time it takes to identify against the bank and how much information will be retrieved, but will be completed as soon as possible after your approval.

2.3 When the information is compiled in the Tink-App, it is categorised automatically to give you an easy-to-understand overview of your account information.


 

3. The payment initiation service

  • You can transfer money with Tink.

  • When you carry out a transfer with the service, you notify Tink that a transfer is to be made, who in turn informs your bank.

  • Subsequently, the bank executes the transaction.

  • If you suspect that an unauthorised payment has been made, you must contact your bank as soon as possible.

  •  If you do not inform your bank about suspicions or if you do not keep your account safe, you might be liable for your loss.

 

3.1 The payment initiation service means that you can order initiation of a payment transaction, i.e. order payments/transfers, between your accounts or from your accounts to accounts of others. Each time you want to order a payment/transfer, you use the Service by ordering the initiation of the payment/transfer in the Tink-App and by providing information on from which of your accounts the payment/transfer is to be made, the account of the payee and OCR number or message (if any), in accordance with Tink’s instructions in the Tink-App. When you have submitted the information, you must give your explicit consent to the initiation, where after Tink forwards your request for initiation directly to the bank.

3.2 If you have approved the initiation during a banking day, it will be considered as received by Tink and approved by you on that day. If you have approved the initiation during a day which is not a banking day, it will be considered as received by Tink and approved by you the following banking day. You may not, in any of these two situations, revoke a payment initiation after it has been approved by you.

3.3 You are responsible for the correctness of the information that you provide for the payment initiation and for having sufficient funds on your account. Tink is responsible for executing the initiation. If the initiation fails, you will be informed by Tink. The payment/transfer is executed by the bank. The bank is responsible for the execution. The timing for execution of the payment/ transfer depends on the respective bank’s processing times for execution.

3.4 If you suspect that a payment/transfer has been executed without your approval, you must inform the bank from which the payment/transfer was executed as soon as possible, in accordance with the bank’s instructions. If you fail to do so, you might be held liable for the payment/transfer.

If you have not informed your bank of unauthorized transactions: 
●     as soon as possible from knowing about these; or
●     within 13 months from your account having been charged;  
you are liable for the total amount.
