(c) contravention of a requirement imposed on us by the Payment Service Regulations 2009 where that contravention is due to us complying with our obligations under the laws of any EEA state or other jurisdiction.
12.6 Where we and another person (such as another payment services provider) are liable to you in respect of the same matter or item, you agree that our liability to you will not be increased by any limitation of liability you have agreed with that other person or because of your inability to recover from that other person beyond what our liability would have been had no such limitation been agreed and/or if that other person had paid his or its share.
12.7 Where any loss, liability, cost or expense (a “Loss”) is suffered by you for which we would otherwise be jointly and severally or jointly liable with any third party or third parties, the extent to which such Loss shall be recoverable by you from us (as opposed to any third parties) shall be limited so as to be in proportion to our aggregate contribution to the overall fault for such Loss, as agreed between all of the relevant parties or, in the absence of agreement, as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction. For the purposes of assessing the contribution to the Loss in question of any third party for the purposes of this Clause, no account shall be taken of any limit imposed or agreed on the amount of liability of such third party by any agreement (including any settlement agreement) made before or after such Loss occurred or was otherwise incurred.

12.15 The provisions in this Clause 13 shall survive termination of these Terms or any Contract.

Accordingly we and our Partners are required to screen all Money Transfers against lists of names provided by the governments of the countries and territories in which we do business including the US treasury department`s office of foreign assets control (OFAC) and the European Union. If the potential match is identified, we will do further a search to determine if the name matched is the individual on the relevant list. On occasion, consumers are required to provide additional identification and other information, delaying Money Transfers.
13.3 To assist us with meeting our obligations, we may carry out an electronic verification check and credit reference check via third party providers in order to verify identity and credit standing. If such searches are carried out, we may keep records of the contents and results of such searches in accordance with all current and applicable laws. You acknowledge that us carrying out an electronic verification check or credit reference agency check will leave a soft footprint on your credit history.
13.4 If, while we are acting for you, it becomes necessary to make a money laundering disclosure, we may not be able to inform you that a disclosure has been made or of the reasons for it.
14. GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION
