Credit/Debit Card Service Agreement

Our commitment to you:

  1. Variety Queensland will not change the amount or frequency of drawing arrangements without your prior approval.
  2. Variety Queensland will advise you with 14 days advance notice of any changes to the Credit/Debit Card Authorisation or drawing arrangements.
  3. Variety Queensland will debit your nominated credit/debit card account on the designated debit day which has been agreed upon between you and Variety Queensland. For the Variety Heart Lottery, this debit day will be the first business day of each month. If the debit day happens to fall on a public holiday, Variety Queensland will debit your account on the next business day after that date. If payment is not processed, Variety Queensland will re-attempt on the second and third business day. After the third unsuccessful attempt, your lottery subscription will be paused and you will be contacted to rectify payment to reactivate your subscription for the next month.
  4. Variety Queensland will not disclose your details except where necessary to Variety Queensland’s financial institution and for the purposes of conducting credit/debit card debits with your financial institution. Variety Queensland will keep the information in your CC Authorisation or verbal request confidential, except: (a) to the extent specifically required by law; or (b) for the purposes of this agreement (including disclosing information in connection with any query or claim).

Your commitment to us:

  1. It is your responsibility to ensure that there are sufficient funds in your nominated account each month. It is your responsibility to have sufficient funds available in your nominated account to meet each drawing on the debit day. If there are insufficient funds you may incur a fee and/or interest by your financial institution. This fee is not the responsibility of Variety Queensland.
  2. You will advise Variety Queensland if the nominated drawing account is transferred, closed or any of the account details change, e.g. expiry date, account name, etc.
  3. Ensure that all account holders on the nominated financial institution drawing account are aware of this acceptance of Authorisation.
  4. Ensure the contact details in your order are true and authorised to make this commitment.

This Agreement will remain in force until you advise Variety Queensland that you wish to cancel your Authorisation.
