4. After completing the membership registration with us, the Customer can use the wallet that pools the funds for remittance in advance. Funds other than for remittance purposes cannot be pooled in the wallet. The funds pooled in the wallet are not deposits and therefore do not bear interest. The maximum amount of funds that can be pooled in the wallet is 1 million yen. However, if the Company individually notifies the customer of a separate maximum amount, that amount will be the maximum amount. If funds exceeding the maximum amount are pooled, we will ask the customer about the remittance transaction schedule. If you do not plan to transfer money, the customer is required to perform the procedure to transfer the funds accumulated in the wallet to the deposit account by yourself. If the customer does not complete the procedure to transfer money to their deposit account, if the customer cannot answer the inquiry from us, or if the customer answered that remittance is planned, the remittance transaction will be performed. If not, we will transfer the funds accumulated in the wallet to your deposit account and refund them with prior notice. The customer is responsible for the bank fee for refunding the transfer.
Use of this Service

If two years have passed since the last use of this service, the Company shall be able to cancel the membership registration. Customers can cancel their membership registration at any time during the contract period. There are no costs associated with canceling membership registration or the erasure of membership data. We will send the customer a notification of the renewal procedure before the expiration date of your membership registration. If the expiration date has passed without renewal, we will suspend the use of the wallet, send a notification that the wallet balance will be refunded, and perform refund processing (transfer) to the bank account registered in advance. If there is a change in the content of your membership registration, please register for the change immediately using the document or method approved by us.

We are not responsible for any damage or loss caused to the customer by not giving free points. If the customer cancels the membership or the Company cancels the membership registration of the customer based on this regulation, all free points held at that time shall be forfeited by the customer. If we find an error in the number of free points granted, we will notify the customer and correct it to the correct number of free points. If an incorrect free point is given to the customer due to a computer malfunction, etc., which is different from the free points that should have been given to the customer, the Company will notify the customer and correct the number of free points to the accurate number of free points. If we consider that the customer has earned free points fraudulently, some or all of the customer’s free points will be invalidated. If we determine that free points that have been illegally earned by the customer have already been used by the customer according to the prescribed procedure, we shall be able to request the customer to return the amount equivalent to the free points. In this case, the Company shall be able to request a refund by deducting the amount equivalent to free points from the customer’s wallet. If a remittance in which free points are applied to part or all of the remittance fee is unsuccessful due to reasons not attributable to the customer, the Company will return the free points allotted to part or all of the remittance fee to the customer.
