Mevo will promptly forward any infringement notice and associated reminder notices (if applicable) received from any enforcement authority to you in connection with your trip. You have the right to challenge, complain about, query or object to the alleged offence to the issuing enforcement authority. You have the right to seek a court hearing within 56 days from the date of the infringement notice or 28 days from the date of issue of a reminder notice. Mevo will notify you of any additional charges arising from an infringement notice prior to charging your payment method as saved in your Personal Profile.

If you fail to pay for any money due in connection with your Mevo Membership including the hourly rate and any extra charges as detailed in the Pricing Schedule within 14 days of the due date which you were required to pay the money, Mevo may charge without prejudice, and you must pay all additional cost as outlined below:

  1. All debt, legal or other external agency collection fees and charges incurred by Mevo for the recovery of the outstanding costs.
  2. Interest charges on the outstanding costs exceeding the 14 day grace period.

You acknowledge that Mevo may pass any debts to an external debt collection agency, at which point the debt must be payable to the debt collection agency directly and not to Mevo.
