1. Giving an order for payment from your account: When you give us an order to make a payment from your account, we will need you to provide us with the details of the beneficiary of the payment (i.e., their account number and sort code, together with any relevant identification details for the payment service provider (‘PSP’) with which they hold their account). Depending on how you place your order with us (i.e., online or in our offices) we may require you verify that order by signature. All this information, taken together, is known as the ‘unique identifier’ that you must give us. In giving us that unique identifier, you will be consenting to our execution of that order for you. You cannot withdraw that consent after you have given it to us.

2. Cut-off times: When we are given an order in relation to a payment on your account, we must be given that order before 10.30 a.m. on one of our Business Days. If we are given that order after that time, we will be deemed to have received that order on our next following Business Day. If we agree with you that an order is to be executed on a particular Business Day, then we will be deemed to have received that order on that particular Business Day.

3. Execution times: Once we are deemed to have received an order under 2 above, you agree that we have up to the end of the third Business Day following the date of deemed receipt under 2 above to credit the amount of that order to the beneficiary’s PSP. On or after 1 January 2012, we confirm that we have up to the end of the first Business Day following the date of deemed receipt under 2 above to so credit that amount. If the order is initiated by paper, in both cases we will have an extra Business Day to do this. We confirm that we have up to the end of the first Business Day following the date of deemed receipt of an order under 2 above to credit the amount of that order to the beneficiary’s payment service provider. If the order is initiated by paper, we will have an extra Business Day to do this.

4. Spending limits and payment instruments: If we give you a payment instrument on your account (i.e., a card with a PIN number, or use of online banking with a password etc., you may separately agree spending limits with us for use of a particular payment instrument. If we give you such a payment instrument for your account, you must, as soon as you receive it, take all reasonable steps to keep its personalised security features safe. If the payment instrument is lost, stolen, misappropriated, or used in an unauthorised manner, you should notify us by phone at 353 (0)42 9335489 during working hours. We reserve the right to block your use of a payment instrument for any of the following reasons:

a) the security of the payment instrument;

b) if we suspect that it is, or has been, used in an unauthorised or fraudulent manner;

c) (if the payment instrument is connected with the provision by us of credit to you) a significantly increased risk that you may be unable to fulfil your obligations to pay; and

d) our national or community obligations

If we block your use of a payment instrument, we will inform you about it and the reasons for it by letter, email, secure online account messaging, text or telephone unless giving you that information would compromise our security or would be prohibited by law.

5. Charges: Currently accounts offered by Dundalk Credit Union do not incur charges.

6. Interest rates: If an interest rate applies to your account, you are told this when you open your account, and that interest rate is incorporated by reference into this Framework Contract. You can obtain confirmation of that interest rate by contacting us as set out at the top of page 1.

7. Exchange rates: If any payment on your account (including a withdrawal by you from your account) involves a currency conversion being made by us, we will use a reference exchange rate (Bank of Ireland). The reference exchange rate will change each business day, and this is the basis on which we will calculate the actual exchange rate. On the date on which we effect the currency conversion, we will take the reference exchange rate that applies on that date, add a fixed amount of commission and the total will be equal the actual exchange rate that is used by us in the currency conversion. You can find out the daily changes to the reference exchange rate by contacting us as set out at the top of this page.

8.

Unauthorised transactions: If you become aware of a transaction on your account that is unauthorised or incorrectly executed, you must tell us without undue delay and, in any event, within thirteen months of that transaction being debited from your account. You will be entitled to rectification from us if that transaction was unauthorised or incorrectly executed. If the transaction was unauthorised, we will refund the amount of it to you and, if necessary, restore your account to the state that it would have been in if the unauthorised transaction had not taken place PROVIDED THAT:

a) you will bear the loss of an unauthorised transaction on your account, up to a total of €50, if the unauthorised transaction resulted from (a) the use of a lost or stolen payment instrument or (b) your failure to keep the personalised security features of that payment instrument safe;

b) you will bear all losses relating to an unauthorised transaction on your account if you incurred those losses by acting fraudulently or by failing, intentionally or with a gross lack of reasonable care, to keep the payment instrument and its security features safe, to use it in accordance with any terms that we tell you are applicable to it, and to notify us promptly of it being lost, stolen, misappropriated or used in an unauthorised manner;

c) so long as you have not acted fraudulently you will not bear any financial consequences resulting from the use of a lost, stolen or misappropriated payment instrument once you have notified us in accordance with this Regulation 76 Information that it has been lost, stolen or misappropriated.

11. Refunds of direct debits: If a direct debit is taken from your account but:

a) your direct debit authorisation did not specify the exact amount of the payment; and

b) the amount of the payment exceeded the amount you could reasonably have expected taking into account your previous spending patterns, this Regulation 76 Information and other relevant circumstances; and

c) you give us such factual information as we may require; and

d) you did not give us consent in advance to the direct debit being taken from your account; and

e) neither we nor the beneficiary of the direct debit made information available to you about the transaction at least four weeks before the debit date, then you may request a refund from us of that direct debit for an eight-week period following the debit date.

12. Unique identifier: If you give us an order to make a payment from your account and we execute it in accordance with the correct unique identifier, we will be taken to have executed it correctly as regards the beneficiary of that order. If you give us an incorrect unique identifier, we will not be liable for the non-execution, or defective execution, of the order. We will, however, make reasonable efforts to recover the funds involved.

13. Our liability if you make a payment out of your account: If you give us an order to make a payment from your account, we are liable to you for its correct execution unless we can prove to you (and if necessary, to the beneficiary’s PSP) that the beneficiary’s PSP received the payment. If we are so liable to you for a defective or incorrectly executed order, we will refund the amount of it to you and, if applicable, restore your account to the state that it would have been in if the defective or incorrect transaction had not taken place. Irrespective of whether we are liable to you or not in these circumstances, we will try to trace the transaction and notify you of the outcome.

14. Our liability if you receive a payment into your account: If the payer’s PSP can prove that we received the payment for you, then we will be liable to you. If we are liable to you, we will immediately place the amount of the transaction at your disposal and credit the amount to your account. If you have arranged for a direct debit to be paid into your account, we will be liable to transmit that order to the payer’s PSP. We will ensure that the amount of the transaction is at your disposal immediately after it is credited to our account. If we are not liable as set out above, the payer’s PSP will be liable to the payer for the transaction. Regardless of whether we are liable or not, we will immediately try to trace the transaction and notify you of the outcome.
