1. Introduction

This is a binding agreement that exclusively sets out the rights and obligations between us and the customer. In consideration of us agreeing to provide one or more MyCard Protector products and related website and delivery services, the customer agrees to comply with these Terms and Conditions. The customer shows acceptance of these Terms and Conditions by purchasing or using one of our products or lodging an order on our website.

2. MyCard Protector Performance

How does it work?
Most credit cards now have RFID chips that allow contactless transactions. Any scanner operating at the right frequency (13.56MHz) can obtain data from these cards, unless they are protected. MyCard Protector has an RFID blocking chip that also operates at 13.56MHz. It emits a signal back to the scanner that provides an electronic shield preventing the scanner from obtaining credit card information. MyCard Protector provides a minimum 10mm shield forwards and backwards, protecting credit cards within this range.

Real World Test
The minimum shield is 10mm directly in front and behind MyCard Protector, but our tests have found the shield often performs better. Exact coverage depends on customers' wallet dimensions and card placement. To ensure they are protected, customers should run a Real World test. This can be done by attempting a contactless transaction (eg.PayWave, PayPass, Tap and Go) while cards and MyCard Protector are stored in the usual places in the customer's wallet. Some customers may find they need to use more than one MyCard Protector to cover all cards in their wallet, especially if they have a long or large wallet.

Other signals
MyCard Protector may also block signals in other situations. For instance, our testing has shown some cards trigger some store security gates. Please see the FAQ on this issue or contact GGJC Pty Ltd if you require further details.

We warrant that MyCard Protector will work for twelve months from date of purchase. As MyCard Protector is not battery operated and has no moving parts that can fail, customers may find it works much longer than this minimum lifespan. Customers may check whether their MyCard Protector is still functioning by running the 'Real World' test described above.

3. MyCard Protector Limitations

MyCard Protector is designed to shield nearby cards from contactless transactions. It does not guarantee that a customer will never be defrauded or skimmed.

Customers may experience credit card fraud despite using MyCard Protector. Common reasons include the following.

  • • Card was skimmed when outside of the wallet.
  • • Card was skimmed when inside the wallet, but outside MyCard Protector's range. To avoid this, run the "Real World" test described above.
  • • Card information was collected during an authorised transaction, and then misused for an unauthorised transaction.
  • • Card information was collected online by data thieves.
  • • Card information was collected from hard copy sources other than the card (eg. paper bank statements).

4. Customer Obligations

Customers must use MyCard Protector in the manner specified above. Customers must ensure cards that require protection are stored within range of MyCard Protector's field and must conduct their own Real World Test to ensure MyCard Protector's shield is operating as required.
