(Information pursuant to Italian Legislative Decree 6 September 2005, n. 206)
(Version n. 01 dated 01-07-2022)
This document has the value of pre-contractual information and contains some important information on the services available at a distance and on the ways in which they are provided by Revolut. Further information in relation to remote services is available to the Customer in the contractual forms and in the transparency documentation which is always available to the public through access via the Website and on a durable medium, which allows you to retrieve a copy for the duration of the relationships that the Customer is interested in concluding. The Customer is therefore invited to read this information together with all further pre-contractual and contractual documentation before concluding a contract with Revolut that involves the use of remote communication techniques.

Durable Support: paper or other durable support (for example electronic documents in "PDF", e-mail, etc.) which allows the Customer to store information personally addressed to him so that it can be easily recovered over time and which allows unchanged reproduction of the stored information. Remote Communication Techniques: any means that, without the physical and simultaneous presence of the Customer and Revolut or its representatives, can be used to conclude and dispose of the Contracts (for example the Internet network, the telephone network, etc.)
In the case of Services marketed through Remote Communication Techniques, the Decree gives the Customer the right to receive the information indicated below and to withdraw from the relevant Contract in the cases and in the manner indicated below.
For the information provided for by the Decree that is not contained in this document, please refer to the Legal Documentation, as better specified in the definition above.
The Bank uses the Website to make it possible to access the Services, but also as a place for constant publication and availability of all Legal Documentation, including the general conditions of the Contracts in the version in force from time to time.
The Customer is required to assess the adequacy of the IT tools at their disposal (e.g. smartphones, personal computers, durable media, printers, etc.), as all the Legal Documentation may be acquired by the Customer through them on Durable Media during the entire duration of the relationships that the Customer is interested in concluding. Furthermore, the Legal Documentation may refer to general rules and contractual and economic conditions for specific reference to the Website, with consequent opposability of the same to the Customers, due to the aforementioned characteristics of constant publication and awareness. Moreover, as a constant practice in the sector in the field of remote relationships through the Internet, some choices (options), including contractual ones, may be submitted to customers and acquired by the Bank through electronic registration (so-called "point and click").

Information on risks
The provision of any service at a distance in the banking and financial sector results in an increase in the level of operational risk.
It should also be noted that all remote services present a higher risk of security of operations (e.g. due to hackers, illicit appropriation of security keys and / or data, etc.). Since the Customer will be identified by the Bank exclusively through the verification of the Authentication System adopted as part of the Remote Communication Techniques, the same is required to keep secret all codes, devices and procedures used to access and use the Services.
The use of Remote Communication Techniques involves the Customer's responsibility for the use, in any case and by anyone, of the Services for all operations performed through its Authentication System. Without prejudice to the Bank's commitment to adopt all measures aimed at limiting the risks of improper use of the Services, the Customer is responsible for the safekeeping and correct use of the Authentication System as well as for any harmful consequences that may arise from improper use, caused by any third party, even if as a result of loss or theft of the Authentication System itself.
In the event of theft, loss, theft or loss of confidentiality of the Authentication System or of the devices used to receive passwords by the Bank, the Customer must immediately notify the Bank and change the codes and passwords used to use the Services. In any case, the Customer is required to report what happened to the competent Authorities.
For more information on security, the Customer is invited to consult the appropriate section dedicated to security on the Website.
The Customer is informed that it is his responsibility to use the technological devices made available by the Bank in order to limit the risk of computer fraud.
The Bank will always be able to produce, as proof of the concluded Contracts, of the operations carried out, as well as of any communication made through the remote communication techniques, the records in its books and the related balance documents addressed to the Customer, as well as any additional means of proof that can be obtained from the systems and procedures (computer, telephone, etc.) used for the operation of the Remote Communication Techniques (including communications transmitted by ordinary e-mail).
Considering the complexity and continuous evolution of the security systems and technologies used in Remote Communication Techniques, there is a high probability that the Services provided through them may be interrupted or suspended, and this even without the Customer's notice. For example, in order to allow the verification of security, as well as any other aspect connected with the efficiency and regularity of the Remote Communication Techniques and the Authentication System used, the Customer accepts that the Bank may, at any time, suspend the use of one or more Remote Communication Techniques, even during the operation, and make the reactivation of the same subject to receipt of the relevant confirmations.
The use of the Services through Remote Communication Techniques takes place at the free and conscious choice of the Customer, with acceptance of the greater degree of risk that these techniques involve.

There are no additional mechanisms (we call them “guarantee funds”) that protect your money in your Current Account.
