When available, Sender may select whether payments will be delivered in the local currency of the destination country, or in U.S. dollars through direct deposit to a named U.S. dollar account only at banks designated by Lucky Money.

U.S. currency is converted to foreign currency at an exchange rate set by Lucky Money and or its third party delivering Agents. Lucky Money guarantees the foreign exchange rate to You at the time the transaction is entered.
Some credit card issuers may treat the Use of Your credit card to Use the Service as a "cash advance" rather than a purchase transaction and may impose additional fees and interest rates for the transaction. These fees are imposed by Your credit card issuer, and not by Lucky Money. You can avoid most cash advance fees by paying with a debit card. Contact Your credit card issuer for more information.
REFUNDS OF PRINCIPAL AMOUNT and cancellation of the money transfer will be made upon written request by You if payment to the Beneficiary has not yet been made at the time the request is processed by Lucky Money. REFUNDS OF TRANSFER FEES will be made upon written request of the Sender if the money transfer is not available to the Beneficiary within the time specified by Lucky Money, subject to the hours of operation that the Service is offered at the Agent location selected by the Beneficiary for payment and other special conditions if applicable. Refunds will be made within thirty (30) days of receipt of a valid written request from the Sender.
"You, the customer, are entitled to a refund of the money to be transmitted as the result of this agreement if Lucky Money does not forward the money received from You within 10 days of the date of its receipt, or does not give instructions committing an equivalent amount of money to the person designated by You within 10 days of the date of the receipt of the funds from You unless otherwise instructed by You.

THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN THIS SECTION, THEY ARE WAIVING ALL RIGHTS TO A TRIAL BY COURT OR JURY AS A MEANS OF RESOLVING ANY DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THEIR USE OF LUCKY MONEY'S SERVICES.
Either You or Lucky Money can require that any controversy or dispute arising out of the Services or these Terms be resolved by binding arbitration in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (available at http://www.adr.org) and, as the parties acknowledge and agree that this arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, it shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, as incorporated in Title 9 of the United States Code. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court, including the right to a jury and the right to participate in a class action or similar proceeding. In arbitration, a dispute is resolved by a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury. Arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited than rules applicable in court. The decision of the arbitrator is final and binding.
The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned award if so requested by You or Lucky Money, and may not modify, rewrite, or otherwise reform these Terms, including but not limited to interpreting the Terms beyond the range of semantic permissibility. The arbitrator, in his or her discretion, shall have the right to award reasonable costs and attorneys' fees to the prevailing party. These Terms shall be governed according to the laws of the State of California and all activities performed in connection with the Service shall be deemed to have been performed in California. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to Use of the Service or these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
Disputes include not only claims made directly by You, but also made by anyone connected with You or claiming through You, such as a Beneficiary. Disputes include not only claims that relate directly to Lucky Money, but also its successors, assignees, employees, and agents, and claims for which Lucky Money may be directly or indirectly liable, even if it is not properly named at the time the claim is made. Disputes include claims based on any theory of law, contract, statute, regulation, tort (including fraud or any intentional tort), or any other legal or equitable ground, and include claims asserted as counterclaims, cross-claims, third-party claims, interpleaders or otherwise. Disputes include claims made as part of a class action or other representative action, it being expressly understood and agreed to that the arbitration of such claims must proceed on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. Disputes also include claims relating to the enforceability or interpretation of any of these arbitration provisions.
If we initiate the arbitration, we may serve You at the last known physical or email address on file with Us. The arbitration shall be conducted in San Francisco, California, and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. However, You and Lucky Money agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within the city and county of San Francisco, California. Either You or Lucky Money may seek any interim or preliminary relief from a court of competent jurisdiction in San Francisco, California necessary to protect the rights or property of You or Lucky Money (or its agents, suppliers, and subcontractors) pending the completion of arbitration. If any portion of this section is deemed invalid or unenforceable, it shall not invalidate the remaining portions of this section.
EXCEPT FOR YOU RIGHT TO A REFUND (See Section 6), LUCKY MONEY WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES CAUSED BY DELAY, NONDELIVERY, NONPAYMENT OR UNDERPAYMENT OF ANY MONEY TRANSFER, OR ANY SUPPLEMENTAL MESSAGE, WHETHER CAUSED BY NEGLIGENCE ON THE PART OF ITS EMPLOYEES, SUPPLIERS OR AGENTS OR OTHERWISE. IN NO EVENT WILL LUCKY MONEY BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OR THE LIKE. THESE CONDITIONS CANNOT BE CHANGED OR SUPPLEMENTED ORALLY.
Lucky Money reserves the right to limit the principal amount of a money transfer, or to reject a proposed money transfer, in its sole discretion. Lucky Money assumes no obligation to make payment of the money transfer or to complete the applicable money transfer transaction if Lucky Money does not receive authorization from the bank card issuer or depository institution, nor does Lucky Money assume any liability for damages resulting from nonpayment of the money transfer or any failure to complete any applicable Service transaction by reason of such lack of authorization. Lucky Money reserves the right to refuse to provide the Services to You, at any time, for any reason deemed necessary to protect Our interests.
Lucky Money shall not be liable for any interruption of service due to causes beyond its control, including, but not limited to, the following: the unavailability or refusal of a person to accept delivery of the money remittance; acts of God; acts of public authorities acting with actual or apparent authority; insufficient information provided by a customer; the application of security regulations imposed by the government, or otherwise applicable to the delivery location; riots, strikes, or other labor disputes; civil commotions; disruptions in ground transportation networks, such as weather phenomena; and natural disasters.
