3. PROVISION OF INFORMATION AND/OR DOCUMENTS
3.1. Payoma will be entitled to:
3.1.1. Request the Client to provide any compliance information related to the Client, inter alia information concerning Client corporate structure, shareholders, management, ultimate beneficiaries, the Goods, the Client Information Resource, any particular transaction(s) and other compliance of the Client with requirements of the Applicable Law. The particular information to be provided and the deadline will be determined by Payoma.
3.1.2. Request the Client to provide or update as follows on any particular Customer:
188.8.131.52. Government-issued photo identification document copy (e.g. government-issued passport or identification card), and
184.108.40.206. Utility bill (e.g. electricity, telephone, etc.) or bank statement dated within the last 3 (three) months, showing registered name, permanent residential and mailing address, and
220.127.116.11. Any other relevant compliance information and documents as defined by Payoma.
The Client will provide to Payoma the information requested in no more than 48 (forty-eight) hours.
3.1.3. Request the Client to provide or update the following information and documents on any particular transaction(s):
18.104.22.168. Detailed description of the transaction(s) in question, and/or
22.214.171.124. Initial document(s) of the transaction (e.g. agreement), and/or
126.96.36.199. Any other document(s) related to the transaction (e.g. invoices), and/ or
188.8.131.52. Any other document(s) and/or information confirming compliance of the transaction to the provisions of the Applicable Law, and/or
184.108.40.206. Any other document(s) and/or information related to the fact that the transaction took place in reality.
The particular information and documents to be provided and the deadline will be determined by Payoma.
3.1.4. Request the Client to provide any other compliance information (other than set out Clauses 3.1.2 and 3.1.3 of these Business Terms) on any particular Customer and/or transaction. The particular information to be provided and the deadline will be determined by Payoma. Where requested information is not on the Client disposal the Client will promptly collect it (e.g. by requesting it from the Customer in question) and deliver it to Payoma.
The Client will promptly notify Payoma if the Client is unable to meet the deadline, its reasons for doing so and the expected time of delivery of the information requested.
The Client will promptly notify Payoma if the Client is unable to collect the requested compliance information, and in that notice the Client will provide:
220.127.116.11. Meaningful explanation as to why the Client was unable to collect the requested information,
18.104.22.168. What steps the Client has taken to collect the requested information,
22.214.171.124. What steps the Client has taken to prevent reoccurrence of similar cases in the future. If the Client has improved internal procedures and policies of the Client Payoma may request to provide copies of these updated procedures and policies.
For the avoidance of doubt: provision of the notice on inability to collect the requested compliance information will not automatically release the Client from liability for non-provision of the requested compliance information. The Client may be released from liability for non-provision of the requested compliance information only provided the Client has done all everything reasonably possible to (a) timely prevent this situation from occurring, (b) to collect the requested information and (c) prevent reoccurrence of similar cases in the future.
3.1.5. Request the Client to improve certain aspects of its operations related to performance of this Agreement (e.g. concerning sale of the Goods via the Client Information Resource, collecting necessary minimum of information regarding Customers and transactions etc.). The deadline for improvement will be determined by Payoma and it will be reasonable.
For the avoidance of doubt: Payoma may make requests for improvement set out in this Clause 3.1.5 irrespective of the fact if any of transactions concerned were Charged back, or disputed, or if any supervising authority has applied a fine related to the aspect of the Client operations in question.
For the avoidance of doubt: Payoma is under no obligation to request improvement or to perform checks of operations of the Client that may lead to such request. Therefore, if Payoma has made no requests the Client may not deduct therefrom that no aspects of its operations require improvement. Analogously if Payoma made some requests for improvement the Client may not rely that these requests are exhaustive, and no other aspect of its operations requires improvement.
3.2. The Client grants Payoma right to access the Client Information Resource for the purpose of conducting checks and searches in order to investigate the accuracy of information contained in the Client Information Resource in relation to the Services. Payoma will be under no obligation to conduct such checks and searches and any such checks and searches under no circumstances will be deemed an approval of any contents of the Client Information Resource.

12. TERMINATION AND SUSPENSION
Termination of your Payoma Account or only a part of the Services

12.5.1. The funds may be withdrawn using bank transfer only, and

Suspension of provision of the Services
12.6. In addition to the cases laid down in Clause 20.1 of the Terms we may suspend provision of all or part of the Services to you or otherwise restrict their functionality in the way we deem fit in any of the cases laid down in Clause 12.1 of these Business Terms as an alternative or intermediate measure.
