Terms & Conditions
1. Terms and Conditions
The following terms and conditions apply where you add, use or remove a Latitude Card in Apple Pay on your eligible Apple Device.
These terms and conditions are in addition to the terms and conditions (also known as the Conditions of Use) that apply to your Latitude Card and account. The terms and conditions for your Latitude Card which relate to EFT transactions also extend to the use of Apple Pay in relation to your card.
If there is any inconsistency between the Conditions of Use applying to your Latitude Card and these terms and conditions, these terms and conditions will apply to the extent of that inconsistency.
Please note that these terms and conditions do not apply to the relationship between you and Apple, your telecommunications provider or any other third party who provides services or applications incorporated into Apple Pay. Apple, your telecommunication provider and those third parties impose their own terms and conditions.
2. Adding and removing a Latitude Card on Apple Pay
You can add your Latitude Card to Apple Pay only on your eligible Apple Device so long as your Latitude Card or account is not cancelled, blocked, suspended or in default. You can remove your Latitude Card from Apple Pay at any time.
We will verify your identity when we do this and require that your mobile phone number and email address is up to date to enable this process.
You can find instructions on how to add or remove a Latitude Card at www.latitudefinancial.com.au.
If we re-issue your Latitude Card due to misuse, loss or theft or a breach of the card's PIN or password you will need to add the re-issued card to Apple Pay in order to use Apple Pay on your Apple Device.
3. Using Apple Pay
You can use Apple Pay to authorise transactions on your account by using the Apple Device instead of a Latitude Card at a contactless payment terminal or in an application on an Apple Device or online where Apple Pay is supported.
You will be required to manually enter the Latitude Card PIN for transactions over $100 or where your Touch ID or Apple Device's passcode is not recognised.
4. Security, Misuse, Loss and Theft
You must inform us immediately if your Apple Device, Apple Wallet or passcode has been misused, lost or stolen by calling the Customer Solutions number on the back of your Latitude Card or on the Latitude website.
You should also log in using 'Find My iPhone' or your iCloud account and delete all cards from Apple Pay. If a Latitude Card has been deleted from Apple Pay you will still be able to use the physical Latitude Card associated with your account, unless it is also blocked or cancelled.
You must give us all the information that you have or can reasonably obtain regarding the unauthorised use, loss or theft.
If you suspect an unauthorised transaction in respect of an additional cardholder, you must suspend or close the Latitude Card of the additional cardholder by calling the Customer Solutions number on the back of your Latitude Card or on the Latitude website.
You must keep the Apple Device, Apple Wallet and passcode secure, including by:
- ensuring that only your fingerprint or biometric identifier is registered on your Apple Device;
- not sharing your Apple Wallet or passcode with anyone;
- not having a record of the passcode in your Apple Device or on anything liable to be stolen with your device;
- ensuring it has passcode lock or similar lock which activates when the device is not in use or unattended;
- ensuring that your passcode does not:
- contain any numeric or alphanumeric code which represents your name or any part of it;
- contain any numeric code which represents your birth date or any part of it;
- contain your credit card PIN or any part of it; and
- not having an easily guessable passcode;
- changing your passcode regularly;
- installing and maintaining Apple software updates and appropriate anti-virus software on your Apple Device; and
- removing any Latitude Cards from your Apple Device before disposing of it.
You may become liable for all or any unauthorised transactions if you do not keep your Apple Device, Apple Wallet and passcode secure in the manner described above.
5. Liability and unauthorised transactions
Except as set out in these terms and conditions, your liability for unauthorised transactions using your Latitude Card with Apple Pay will be determined in accordance with the Conditions of Use relating to your liability for EFT transactions applying to your account.
In the Conditions of Use references to "cards" are to be read as references to an Apple Device and references to "PIN" or "password" are to be read as references to the Apple passcode, with all necessary modification, and noting that if third party's fingerprint or biometric identifier is registered on your Apple device, you will be liable for these transactions.
