Financial and Trade Sanctions (collectively “Sanctions”) are part of a package of measures applied by individual countries, International Organisations, or Regional Bodies, to fight aggression, terrorism, criminal behaviour, or violations of human rights. These sanctions measures are intended to motivate a change in behaviour by the individual, regime, or jurisdiction concerned, or to deprive terrorists and criminals of access to funds.
In general terms, sanctions legislation prohibits the exchange of funds, services or goods with those who are subject to sanctions.
The most frequently applied measures are:
- embargoes on exporting or supplying arms and associated technical assistance, training and financing
- a ban on exporting equipment that might be used for internal repression
- financial sanctions on individuals in government, government bodies and associated companies, or terrorist groups and individuals associated with those groups, by stopping the flow of money to or from them
- travel bans on named individuals
- bans on imports of raw materials or goods from the sanctions target
- bans on exportation or importation of goods relating to specified industries or the raising of capital for these industries.
- Other measures may be applied according to individual circumstances. A failure to comply with these obligations can carry serious consequences, including criminal penalties.
To ensure that the requirements imposed by the European Union, the UK, the UN Security Council, and other countries in which Lloyds Banking Group operates, are fulfilled, MBNA has a sanctions policy in place which meets and, in some cases, exceeds, what is required by law.
With this in mind, MBNA exercises a risk based and diligent approach when business is proposed in the following countries and regions:
- North Korea
- Burma / Myanmar
- The Crimean peninsula including Sevastopol.
If you are planning to directly or indirectly engage in any form of business, or to remit or receive funds (in any currency) in a way which may involve the countries and regions in the list above, or an individual or entity who has been specially designated, then please contact us beforehand, as transactions could otherwise be delayed, rejected, or frozen.
This list is based on our understanding of the position at the date of publication, and may be subject to change in the light of experience, evolving risks, legislation, or regulation.

Paperless terms and conditions
These terms apply when you choose to get online statements and other documents for credit card accounts and should be read in conjunction with the terms for each account held.
Agreeing to receive documents online – what does it mean for me?
Once paper statements or correspondence are stopped for your account, you’re agreeing for your documents to be sent electronically to your personal account area in Online Card Services.
We’ll no longer send statements or correspondence for the account by post, unless you ask us to start sending you paper statements and/or correspondence again or for another reason stated in these conditions.
You can view your statements or correspondence online at any time by logging on to Online Card Services and viewing your online Inbox for correspondence or Account Statements section for statements. We won’t amend or delete any statements or correspondence which is held in your personal account area in Online Card Services.
Credit card accounts – statements
Your credit card statements will be available to view as PDF (Portable Document Format) files. By agreeing to receive your statements online, you’re also agreeing to receive other documents that we normally send as part of your paper statements, such as certain Notices of Variation, Notices of Default Sums, Notices of Sums in Arrears and Annual Statements as part of your electronic statement.
What if I want to switch back to paper?
You can ask us to start sending you paper statements or correspondence again at any time. Just log on to Online Card Services and go to the ‘Manage online and paper preferences’ page. You’ll then be able to opt-in/opt-out for statements and correspondence for each individual account.
You’ll begin receiving paper statements again at the same frequency you were receiving them before they were stopped. There are no restrictions on the number of times you can opt into or out of paper statements.
Can my online statement be used as proof of ID/address?
The online statements produced may not be accepted as proof of ID/address, as some companies require original paper statements rather than online printouts.
How do I get a paper copy of my online statement or correspondence? Will I be charged for this?
You can request a paper statement by calling us on 03456 062 062 (or +44 1244 659 005 from outside the UK). If you have a hearing or speech impairment, contact us using Text Relay on: 18001 03456 062 062
There will be a charge for all paper copies of credit card statements if you’ve chosen to receive your statements online. Please see your credit card terms and conditions for further details of the charge we’ll make.
What happens if I don't view my online statement or correspondence?
If you log on to Online Card Services but don’t view your statements for 3 consecutive months, we’ll send you an online reminder and an e-mail to remind you to view your statements online. You’ll get another online reminder if you don’t view your statements after 6 consecutive months.
What happens if I close an account for which I receive online statements or correspondence?
If you intend to close an account for which you receive online statements, please ensure that you print copies for your records before you do so, as you’ll no longer be able to access your statements online once the account is closed.
What happens if there are changes to the paperless terms and conditions?
We may change these terms and conditions by giving you at least two months' advance personal notice. In giving you personal notice, we’ll tell you about the change by letter, email, online message, text message, statement message or insert or in any other way which is sent to you individually.
