Termination of your relationship with us shall not affect the rights or liabilities of either party under these dozens T&Cs accrued at that date, including but without limitation arising under the sections headed ‘intellectual property’, ‘no warranty’ and ‘your data’, which shall survive and remain enforceable by the respective party.

Savers Awards

To encourage good financial behaviour dozens has set up the Savers’ Awards - details can also be found in the My Profile section of the app.

The Savers’ Awards are a monthly free prize drawer, where you receive (free) nominations to increase your chances of receiving an award based on you demonstrating good financial behaviour throughout the month. If you are demonstrating the elements of good financial behaviour you need to do nothing more – you will automatically accrue nominations and be entered into the Savers’ Awards as follows:

  1. for every day that you rate the happiness of all your transactions (and therefore showing you are connected with your spend and being mindful about what you are spending) you will receive 1 nomination. You don’t need to rate all your spend as happy spend, but can choose any of the happy/sad/neutral for each of your transactions
  2. for every week that you stick to your budget, you will receive 10 nominations
  3. for every month that you save money into fixed interest bonds you will receive 1000 nominations (it doesn’t matter how much you put in savings that month, just that you have managed to save something into bonds). You will keep accruing nominations for each month that you keep your savings tucked away in bonds
  4. for every year that your investment goals are on track, you will receive 1000 nominations.

Your total nominations accrued in a calendar month will be collected together, and a random computer-generated draw will select 10 winners a month (we’ll let you know via the app if we can select more winners). Winners will each receive £100 in cash into their dozens current account, except for a bumper winning month in December where winners will receive £1000 each.

Once nominations have been used in a monthly draw they will then expire. You can’t elect to roll over nominations, or not use nominations in any given month – they will automatically be entered into that month’s draw if you have accumulated them that month.

We’ll do each draw on or around the 7th of the month following the draw month – so if the draw month is April, we’ll select April’s winners on or around 7 May.

Note that for d) we will look at whether your goals are on track in December and award nominations in December (to go into that month’s draw, with winners to be announced on or around 7 January).

Winners will be notified individually normally within 30 days of the draw taking place, and we’ll let winner know then when to expect their prize (pretty quickly we should hope!). A list of winners will be kept and will be available on request in an anonymised format.

Any one person can receive an annual maximum of 365 nominations for a), maximum of 520 nominations per year for b), maximum of 12000 nominations per year for c) and maximum of 1000 nominations per year for d).

Miscellaneous

In order to use other functions of the dozens products or services, you may be requested to accept other terms and conditions, either with dozens or with a third party. For example, if you are interested in our fixed interest savings bond, you will need to read and accept separate terms relating to that product.

These terms shall be governed by the laws of England & Wales and any claim or dispute under these terms shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of England & Wales. For the avoidance of doubt, other than as set out in the section 3 ‘Customer services and complaints’, these terms do not include any alternative dispute resolution procedures as a means of disputing or issuing any claims in relation to these terms.

These terms do not give any rights to any third party and no third party shall have the right to enforce these terms or any dozens transaction under the Contract (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 or otherwise.

If we fail to enforce any of our rights under the terms, or applicable laws, it shall not be deemed to constitute a waiver of such right.

You may not transfer or assign or sell any rights or obligations you have under these terms or otherwise grant any third party a legal or equitable interest over your dozens account without our prior written consent. We reserve the right to transfer or assign these terms or any right or obligation under these terms at any time.

We may comply with any subpoena, levy, or other legal process which we believe to be valid. We may notify you of such process electronically, by phone, or in writing.

We reserve the right, but shall have no responsibility, to edit, modify, refuse to post or remove any provider content, in whole or in part, that in its sole and absolute discretion is objectionable, erroneous, illegal, fraudulent or otherwise in violation of these terms.

Unless stated otherwise in these terms, if any provision of these terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be struck and the remaining provisions shall be enforced.

These terms shall be binding on, and ensure to the benefit of, the parties to these terms and their respective personal representatives, successors and permitted assigns, and references to any party shall include that party’s personal representatives, successors and permitted assigns.

A reference to a statute or statutory provision is a reference to it as amended, extended or re-enacted from time to time.

A reference to writing or written includes email and the chat function in the dozens app.

Any obligation on a party not to do something includes an obligation not to allow that thing to be done.

These terms shall be concluded and interpreted in the English language. If these terms are translated into another language, it is for reference purposes only. All communications between the parties shall be in the English language.

3. Customer services and complaints

We pride ourselves on our customer services support, and we are working hard to provide you with multiple channels through which we can provide you with help and support. You can contact us through the app, by emailing help@dozens.com or by calling 0808 164 1020.

We take all complaints seriously. Any complaints about us can be sent to us through any channel, but we recommend the most efficient method is via our in-app chat function. Please clearly indicate that you are wishing to make a complaint to us. This helps us to distinguish a complaint from a mere query. Our complaints procedure dozens.com/complaints sets out the process for submitting and resolving any complaints. You may request a copy of our complaints procedure at any time by contacting customer services.

A final response to your complaint, or a letter explaining why the final response has not been completed, will be sent to you within 15 business days of the date your complaint was made, and in exceptional circumstances, within 35 business days (and we will let you know if this is the case).

If after having received our final response you are still unhappy or not satisfied, you may, if your complaint falls within the Financial Ombudsman Service’s jurisdiction, be able to take your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) details of which are available on the following link financial-ombudsman.org.uk/faq/complain.html. You can also call the FOS on 0300 123 9123, email them at complaint.info@financial-ombudsman.org.uk or write to: Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London, E14 9SR. Further information regarding the FOS and whether you qualify for this service is available on the FOS website.

4. Your data

We will never sell your data or pass it on to third parties who use it to peddle you their products and services. We believe your data is YOUR data and should only be used for your benefit. This is a fundamental dozens principle.

To properly provide you with the dozens products and services that you have requested, your data is required to be processed, as set out below and also in accordance with our privacy policy which can be found following this link dozens.com/privacy-policy.

You agree that we can use your information in connection with your dozens account (current account, cash savings and investment), to enable us to review, develop and improve our products and services. This may involve providing your information to our partners, affiliates, agents, distributors and suppliers to process your transactions and for their statistical research and analytical purposes.

You understand and agree that we may collect information about how you and other dozens users interact with the dozens products and services. If you require functionality from certain dozens services, you may give us access to your address book on your device and store names and contact information to facilitate social interactions through the dozens products and services and for other purposes.

When you use certain dozens products and services we may collect precise merchant data about a particular transaction of yours, to allow us to provide improved services to you. You are not identifiable from the merchant data.

We collect transaction details related to your use of the dozens products and services, including the type of service requested, date and time the service was provided, amount charged and other related transaction details. We may collect information about your mobile device, including for example, the hardware model, operating system and version, software and file names and versions, preferred language, unique device identifier, advertising identifiers, serial number, device motion information and mobile network information. You agree that we may use the information that we collect to facilitate interactions with the dozens products and services, including sharing certain anonymous information about you with other dozens users.

If you turn on authorisation for the dozens app to access location services through the permission system used by your mobile operating system, we may also collect the precise location of your device when the app is running in the foreground or background. We may also derive your approximate location from your IP address. You may opt out of providing location data through the dozens app, unless you opt out of providing location data, you consent to the collection and use of location data as further set out in the Privacy Policy. We will never sell this data with third parties, and will only ever use it for your benefit, including to improve our products and services, and for our own internal research purposes.

You understand and agree that dozens may, without further notice or warning and in our discretion, monitor or record the telephone conversations you or anyone acting on your behalf has with us or our agents for quality control and training purposes or for our own protection. However, we do not guarantee that recordings of any particular telephone calls will be retained or retrievable.

We reserve the right to transmit any information or personal data about you and your use of the dozens products and services to law enforcement institutions, state authorities and financial institutions, if this is necessary to comply with legislation, and in order to identify whether these terms and relevant legislation have not been violated. We may disclose your information as required by law, regulation or any competent authority or agency to investigate possible fraudulent, unlawful or unauthorised activity.

When you initially give us your information on opening a dozens account (current account, cash savings and investment), we will search your record at credit reference and fraud prevention agencies. These searches are to check your identity and we do not carry out full credit reference checks or credit scoring for this purpose. We do carry out a “soft” credit check, and credit reference agencies will record that we have carried out a check but this won’t affect your credit score or credit history, and it will not be seen by lenders who you may want to borrow from in the future. We will use a technology based automated system to assess your application and verify your identity.

If we are unable to verify your identity adequately, we may ask you to provide some documentary evidence to help confirm your identity and address. If you give us false or inaccurate information and we identify fraud, we will record this with fraud prevention agencies. Law enforcement agencies may access and use this information. In some cases, we may need to ask for additional information or documents from you. If this happens, we will send you a message and you agree to provide us with the information and documents we ask for within a reasonable period. You accept that if you do not do this, we may freeze your account or take other action against you or with respect to your account. Please note that we treat your personal data with the utmost importance, and information that you give us to satisfy checks will never be sold or used for other purposes.
