PayPal has banned former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson for violating its terms and conditions.

The online payment service is thought to have told Robinson that it will no longer process payments for him because he violated the website's terms and conditions, the BBC reports.

PayPal - Platform - Hate - Violence - Forms

PayPal said its platform could not be used to 'promote hate, violence or other forms of intolerance that is discriminatory.'

In a statement to MailOnline, a PayPal spokesman said it couldn't comment on individual customers.

Spokesman - PayPal - Reviews - Accounts - Use

However, the spokesman said PayPal regularly reviews accounts to ensure their use aligns with the company's acceptable use policy.

Any accounts that violate the policies would be closed.

Accounts - Services - Line - Long-standing - Use

'We carefully review accounts to ensure our services are used in line with our long-standing Acceptable Use Policy, and take action as appropriate.

'We do not allow PayPal services to be used to promote hate, violence, or other forms of intolerance that is discriminatory,' the spokesman said.

Spokesman - 'We - Decisions - PayPal - Accounts

The spokesman added: 'We do not take decisions like these lightly, and we work hard to be rigorous and fair-minded when reviewing PayPal accounts.'

'Striking the necessary balance between upholding free expression and open dialogue and protecting principles of tolerance, diversity and respect for all people is a challenge that many companies are grappling with today.

Work - Balance - Decisions

'We work hard to achieve the right balance and to ensure that our decisions are values-driven and not political.'

It comes after PayPal banned US conspiracy theory website InfoWars in September because it was promoting hate and intolerance.
