6.- Conditions of access to the Virtual Wallet of the Consorcio Málaga application
To use the Virtual Wallet of the Consorcio Málaga application, the User must have an Android smartphone version 6.0 or higher with an NFC chip and antenna.
It is the responsibility of the User to have Internet access on their terminal to enable the use of the application (2G, 3G, 4G or WIFI). The specific costs and tariffs for mobile network data traffic are the responsibility of the User.
Any person wishing to access the Virtual Wallet service must first download the Consorcio Málaga application from the Google Play Store and install it on their mobile device. The User will then be able to access the Virtual Wallet service from their personal mobile phone and use it to travel on the transport services for which the system is enabled.

Finally, for reasons of maintenance, updating or development of the Consorcio Málaga application, CTMAM reserves the right, at any time, to totally or partially interrupt access to the Virtual Wallet service and/or the Consorcio Málaga application, without having to inform the User of this other than through the Consorcio Málaga application. The Consorcio will not be responsible, under any circumstances, for the possible consequences that may arise from these interruptions.
7.- Virtual Wallet
The Virtual Wallet service of the Consorcio Málaga application allows the User to have a digital account in which to top up money that can later be used to pay for journeys made on routes included in the CTMAM.
7.1. Registering for the service
The user must top up a minimum of 5 euros within ten days of registration. Failure to do so may result in the automatic deletion of your account.
7.2. Topping up
The User may top up his/her Virtual Wallet by clicking on the “Top up” button, which will increase the balance available in the Virtual Wallet. Top-ups can only be paid by credit card. The credit cards currently accepted are VISA and MasterCard.
The User guarantees that he/she is fully authorised to use the credit card on which the top-up will be charged and that his/her payment method allows him/her to have sufficient funds to cover the amount of the top-up.
The charge to the payment method is immediate and the transaction cannot be cancelled.
If the payment is declined, a message will be displayed on the User’s mobile phone indicating that the top-up amount has not been debited.
Details of top-ups are available in the “Operations” section of the Virtual Wallet option of the Consorcio Málaga application.
All recharges and journeys made imply acceptance of the applicable prices and commit the User to payment. These prices are available on the website https://ctmam.es/.
All recharging and subsequent travel implies acceptance of the fares applicable at any given time.
It will not be possible to modify or cancel a recharge once it has been made in your Virtual Wallet. Furthermore, under no circumstances will refunds, reimbursements or transfers of the balance contained in the Virtual Wallet be made.
The maximum balance that can be accumulated in the Virtual Wallet is five hundred (500) euros.
In order to travel on CTMAM transport lines, the User must have a mobile phone compatible with the service, have the Consorcio Málaga app installed and have registered with the Virtual Wallet service. They must also have sufficient credit in their wallet to be able to pay the fare for the journey.
Before entering the vehicle, the User will enter the Virtual Wallet option and click on the “Travel” button. On entering the vehicle, they will tell the driver the destination of their journey (if necessary to know the fare) and when the driver tells them to do so, they will bring the NFC antenna of their terminal close to the reader of the validating machine, holding it in that position until they are sure that the connection has been made correctly (the validator will emit a sound, a green light or specific information shown on the screen). On your terminal you will receive an acoustic signal indicating that the operation has been carried out and the information of the validation result will be displayed on the screen.
In case of error, in those services where there is a driver, the User may ask the driver to cancel the journey.
The validation of all tickets (including season tickets and free tickets) is compulsory each time the User boards the vehicle to be used or passes through the turnstile in the case of stations.
In the event of a mobile phone breakdown or for any other reason that prevents the use of the service, the User must buy another type of ticket and is not entitled to any type of compensation from CTMAM.
The User may consult the lines on which the Virtual Wallet payment system is active on the website https://ctmam.es/. CTMAM accepts no liability for attempts to use the service on routes where the system is not available.
In case of inspection control, the User shall present his/her mobile terminal to the inspector.
The User acknowledges and accepts that only the information displayed in the transaction option of the Virtual Wallet shall be valid to justify the validity of the ticket.
All Users, including those benefiting from a reduction or free travel, must have a valid and validated ticket.
The absence of a ticket (ticket present on a defective telephone, ticket not present in the application, etc.) or irregular use of the latter may lead to the imposition of a fine, in accordance with the provisions relating to ticket fraud contained in the General Conditions of Sale and Use of tickets.
In the event of discovery of a false declaration made by the User at the time of subscription allowing him/her to benefit unduly from a reduced fare, the User’s account shall be blocked and the sums paid in payment of the ticket shall be retained by CTMAM, without prejudice to the penalty established for infringement due in the event of travel without a valid and validated ticket.
In the event of improper and/or fraudulent use of the service, the User accepts that CTMAM may block his/her account and prevent him/her from registering again in the future, losing the balance in his/her wallet.
7.5. Use of the Virtual Wallet on several terminals simultaneously
The User may access his/her Virtual Wallet on any mobile terminal that complies with the requirements set out in these GCTU. However, CTMAM shall not be liable for the loss of confidentiality of the User’s access credentials due to their being entered in a terminal owned by another person.
7.6 Loss, theft or change of the mobile terminal
In the event of loss, theft or change of mobile handset, the user must reinstall the Consorcio Málaga application on their new handset and will be able to access their Virtual Wallet as normal, using their username and password.
If the terminal is lost or stolen, it is recommended that the access password be changed.
7.7 Uninstalling the app
Uninstalling the app from the terminal does not imply the deletion of the account and does not prevent the application from being installed later on the same or another terminal and the user from accessing the service using their credentials and keeping all the information relating to their user intact.
7.8 Termination of the User and deletion of the account
The User may request cancellation of the service and deletion of the account by sending an e-mail request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deletion of the account shall entail the loss of the balance in the Virtual Wallet at that moment, with no possibility of subsequent recovery, even if the User wishes to re-register for the service, as well as the deletion of his/her personal data.
CTMAM reserves the right to delete those accounts in which no activity has taken place (top-ups and/or trips) within a period of five (5) years. In this case, the balance of the Virtual Wallet at that time will be lost.
By ticking the corresponding box in the configuration options, the user agrees to receive notifications regarding the operation of the service.
