English term or phrase: Timeout Reversal (TOR)
Right, so we're talking about prepaid gift cards which get activated at checkout - it's called POSA (Point of sales activation). My understanding is that Timeout Reversal is a situation where the activation process is started, then the system / connexion times out for some reason, and you then don't know what status the card is left in so you need to be able to cancel it all and start again... the instructions I'm translating specify that the POS system in place must support Timeout Reversal (TOR)

The full sentence:
Timeout Reversals (TOR) are required to be issued in the event of a timeout response and must be repeated for a pre-agreed duration until a response is acknowledged ensuring the card is in the correct status.

Any IT guys out there with a suggestion as to an accepted equivalent term in French?
