Important security information
Below are a series of important security tips you should follow when using your Card.
You are solely liable for any Cards we have issued on your Account, and for their use. This is so even if a charge is incurred by an Additional Cardholder, and, in certain circumstances, where a charge is incurred after a Card was lost or stolen.
You are responsible for keeping all Cards, including any Personal Identification Number (PIN), safe and for ensuring they are only used in accordance with these Terms and only for authorised transactions.
If we print a name on a Card, it must be used by that person (the cardholder). You may not transfer the Card to a person other than the cardholder.
We may require a sample of the cardholder’s signature before we provide a Card to that person.
Where the Card does not include a name and or signature panel, you will be liable for all charges incurred by fraudulent or unauthorised use of the Card except where you have notified us that the Card has been lost or stolen.
Where the Card includes a signature panel, the cardholder must immediately sign the Card in the marked space when they receive it, before they use it. If the cardholder does not sign the Card, you will be liable for all charges incurred by fraudulent or unauthorised use of the Card.
You must destroy invalid cards. If your Card (the invalid card) permanently ceases to be valid (for instance, if the expiry month has passed or it is materially damaged), or if you receive a Card which replaces the invalid card, you must destroy the invalid card.
By applying for and using a Card you are providing personal information to enable us to assess your application for a Card. Without this information, we may not to be able to process your application.
By submitting the Application, or using the Card, you agree that, subject to the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth), for the primary purpose of assessing your application and administering the Card arrangements, we may:
(a) give to a credit reporting agency personal information about you contained in the Application or otherwise lawfully acquired by us and which is permitted to be kept on a credit information file;
(b) obtain a credit report containing information about you from a credit reporting agency for the purpose of assessing your application or for the purpose of collecting overdue payments relating to your Account;
(c) give your personal and/or financial information to a credit reporting agency for the purpose of conducting periodic reviews of your credit and financial arrangements after we have provided you with an Account.
