      • other regulatory requirements, including national and international tax obligations.

    19. Interest calculations differ by specific account type, see TSB for details. Some account types calculate interest daily, however in the instance funds are deposited on a non-business day, the interest on the deposit value is calculated from the next business day.

    21.

Those additional products and services are provided subject to additional conditions which the Bank may amend from time to time. Where such additional conditions are different to these Account Conditions, those additional conditions take precedence (unless the additional conditions expressly state otherwise).

    2. 24 hour numbers are listed on the reverse of this brochure and are known to EFTPOS retailers.
    3. Loss or disclosure must be confirmed in writing to TSB within seven days.
    4. The cardholder will not be responsible for any further unauthorised use of the card once notification of a lost/stolen card or disclosed PIN has been given. This protection will not apply if the cardholder has acted fraudulently or negligently. The cardholder will only be responsible for any actual loss to a maximum of $50 if this occurs before notification. HOWEVER this $50 limit on liability DOES NOT APPLY if:
      1. The cardholder has acted fraudulently or negligently;
      2. The cardholder has breached the TSB's Terms and Conditions; or
      3. The cardholder has contributed to the unauthorised use of the card, including (but not limited to):
        • selecting unsuitable PINs;
        • failing to reasonably safeguard card/s;
        • keeping written records of the PIN on or with the card;
        • parting with the card/s and/or disclosing PINs to any other person;
        • unreasonably delaying notification to TSB of a lost/stolen card, or of PIN disclosure (actual or possible);
        • failing to take all reasonable steps to prevent disclosure to any person when keying in the PIN.
          The cardholder will then BE LIABLE FOR the lesser of:
        • (i) the actual loss at the time of notification; and
        • (ii) the maximum amount the cardholder would have been able to withdraw from the account between the time the card was lost/stolen and the time the cardholder notified TSB. This is calculated in accordance with the daily transaction limit or the total credit available from the cardholder's account.
  • 10. Disputed transactions
    1. Cardholders should check all entries on bank statements. If the cardholder notices there has been a mistake, funds have been lost or there is an error in a transaction, they should immediately contact their local TSB and provide the following information:
      1. Name
      2. Card number
      3. Account number(s)
      4. Date and time of transaction if possible
      5. The approximate amount of the loss or disputed transaction and such other information as may reasonably be required.
    2. TSB will investigate the complaint and report back to the cardholder within 21 days. If more time is required the cardholder will be advised.
    3. Where it is established an error did occur, TSB will promptly correct the error and adjust any fees or charges that may have occurred as a result.
    4. TSB will assist the cardholder if the cardholder encounters any difficulties with another participating bank's ATM and cannot resolve these difficulties with the participating bank that owns the ATM.
    5. If, after having been notified by TSB, the cardholder is not satisfied with the results of the investigation, the cardholder may request the matter be reviewed under the Complaints Procedures of TSB.
    6. Brochures relating to the Complaints Procedures are on display in all branches of TSB or on TSB's website www.tsb.co.nz.

    2. A card replacement fee will apply.
  • 12. Additional cards

    2. The account holder will be liable for all transactions made by the additional card.
  • 13. Replacement
    1. Lost, stolen or damaged cards will be replaced at the cardholder's request and upon payment of any fees applicable at the time.

  • 15. Termination of agreement
    1. This agreement may be terminated by the cardholder returning the card to TSB. It may also be terminated by TSB cancelling and retaining the card, or refusing to replace the card.
    2. The cardholder remains responsible for any transactions made up until the time of termination
  • 16. Accidental erasure of your Eftpos card
    1. Most problems with card usage are caused by "accidental erasure", or by retailer terminals not reading the magnetic strip properly. This can be due to both operator error (swiping the card too fast or too slowly) and worn or dirty read heads.
    2. Accidental erasure is caused by exposure of the card to a magnetic field and need only be for a brief moment.
    3. Cards damaged by accidental erasure will be replaced at the cardholder's request and upon payment of any fees applicable at the time.
    4. Cards are not affected by X-ray machines or metal detectors at airports, and cannot be wiped by an EFTPOS card reader.
