Fraud Server detection
8.3 Each Transaction made by a User using their Settlement Account may be checked by any of Yoyo's merchant acquirer's, or any other third parties, fraud servers.

If Yoyo is unable to notify Retailer beforehand, it will do so as soon as it can afterwards.

8.8 Where Yoyo exercises its rights under sections 8.4 or 8.9 to suspend the Service and the suspension of the Service is caused directly or indirectly by Retailer's actions or omissions, Retailer shall be liable for any loss or damage arising out of the suspension of the Service suffered by Yoyo. Yoyo shall not be liable for any direct or indirect loss or damage suffered by Retailer or any other third party arising from the suspension of the Service.
