The card shall have a limited validity up to the expiry date it bears.

In cases in which the HOLDER asks for its reimbursement and this is not performed by issuing a new card, the issuer shall receive a reimbursement commission recorded under the specific conditions of each product, as well as any kind of expenses generated as a consequence of processing and performance of the reimbursement.
The issuer may only receive such commissions when the agreement sets an end date and the HOLDER has terminated the agreement prior to that date.
Without prejudice to the foregoing, the orderer shall not be entitled to reimbursement when:
a) the orderer has given their consent to execution of the payment operation directly to the payment service provider, and
b) the payment service provider or the beneficiary has provided or made the information on the future payment transaction available to the orderer, in the manner agreed, at least four weeks prior to the dat foreseen.
