10.6 If the User transpires not to be the authorised user of the payment card used or if the User otherwise contests the transaction as fraudulent, the amount of a transaction may be reversed or charged back (Chargebacks) by your payment card provider. For any transaction that results in a Chargeback, fibodo will be obliged to investigate which may result in administrative costs and/or withholding of payments to the Host. If the User has made a Chargeback application fraudulently or mischievously, then fibodo may claim the amount of loss and any related expenses from the User and may terminate the User's account.
10.7 You will assist us when requested, at your expense, if investigation is required of any of your transactions processed through the Site.
