4.16. At the time of the transaction, the cardholder may be asked to present a document confirming his/her identity. If the cardholder’s signature is missing on the card or the cardholder refuses to present an identity document, the merchant has the right to decline a card payment.
4.17. The payment organisation may decline the transaction in the following instances:
4.17.1. the cardholder provides incorrect data while authorising the transaction (including incorrect card number, expiry date, PIN, CVC2/CVV2, signature on the transfer receipt not matching specimen signature),
4.17.2. the cardholder uses an inactive, blocked, stopped or invalid card,
4.17.3. the available balance on the card is insufficient to cover the transaction amount plus any fees or commission for that transaction,
4.17.4. the card’s authorisation limits (amount and number of transactions) are exceeded,
4.17.5. when justified for reasons of security, in particular to protect against fraud,
4.17.6. when the cardholder refuses to present a piece of identification at the merchant’s request.
4.18. The payment organisation indicates its refusal to effect a transaction by displaying or forwarding the notification to the merchant or to the device which makes it possible to effect the transaction, unless the information cannot be provided for reasons beyond the control of the payment organisation.

5.5.7. the cardholder must not send the card by post;

14. The cardholder is responsible for card transactions when:
14.1. a lost or stolen card is used,
14.2. the card was appropriated or subject to unauthorised use because the cardholder did not take the necessary precautions to safeguard the card and protect it from unauthorised use,

Section VI. – Suspension/Cancellation
16. The card is made available to you and to any user you authorise entirely at our discretion. We reserve the right to terminate all or part of the right to use the card, particularly if you or an authorised user are in default with respect to the terms and conditions. If we terminate your right to use the card, your authorised users also lose the right to use the card. We, or the payment organisation, may cancel or suspend the card if we believe there is a good reason to do so, such as if:
16.1. you have breached these terms and conditions,
16.2. Breder Suasso Ltd or the payment organisation has reason to believe that another party may have an interest in the available balance,
16.3. Breder Suasso Ltd or the payment organisation believes the card is being used to facilitate fraud, money laundering or other criminal acts,
16.4. multiple transactions on the card are declined in rapid succession, or
16.5. the available balance is nil and your card has not been used for eighteen months.
17. Breder Suasso Ltd or the payment organisation may also block or delay a payment to or from your available balance, without your permission and without notice, if either party is required by law to do so or has reason to believe the payment constitutes some form of fraud, money laundering or other criminal offence.
18. Breder Suasso Ltd or the payment organisation will give notice as soon as is reasonably practicable after cancelling or suspending your card, unless prohibited by law.
19. Should Breder Suasso Ltd or the payment organisation cancel the card for any of the reasons listed above, you can obtain a refund of the available balance by calling Breder Suasso Ltd’s Customer Support desk. Breder Suasso Ltd or the payment organisation will not normally charge a card-closure fee. However, where Breder Suasso Ltd or the payment organisation cancels through your breach of contract, fraud, negligence or other wrongdoing, a card-closure fee will apply, and Breder Suasso Ltd or the payment organisation may also deduct from the available balance any loss that we reasonably consider we are entitled to recover from you in this respect. Breder Suasso Ltd or the payment organisation may pay all or part of the available balance to a third party pursuant to a court order or other lawful requirement, in which case we are not liable to you for that amount.
Section VII. – Limits on the liability of Breder Suasso Ltd
20. Breder Suasso Ltd’s liability to you in connection with the card is limited to the current available balance on your card. We are not liable for any loss, indirect or consequential, of profit, cost savings, opportunity or reputation, regardless of the cause. These limitations and exclusions apply to all forms of liability (contract, equity, negligence or other), except to the extent that we cannot lawfully exclude them.
21. We are not responsible for:
21.1. refusal by a financial institution to authorise a cash withdrawal or by a merchant to accept the card payment;
21.2. any dispute between you and a merchant;
21.3. any losses caused by events beyond our control, including non-delivery of mail and failure of an ATM or communication link, resulting in your being unable to use the card;
21.4. any action taken by us, where the card has been reported lost or stolen, which results in a merchant declining a transaction because he or she suspects that you do not own the card;
21.5. any action taken against you in connection with fraudulent use of the card;
21.6. any losses which arise through your negligent or fraudulent actions, either alone or together with any other person(s).
21.7. any claim that arises from us acting reasonably in accordance with your instructions;
21.8. any loss suffered by you or any third party due to matters outside our control (including, but not limited to, non-delivery of mail, machine or system failure, strikes, or lost communication resulting in your being unable to use the card).
22. We cannot be held responsible for any problems associated with purchases resulting from the use of a card or for the quality of the goods or services purchased with the card. Any claim or dispute between you or an authorised user and a merchant, including any right to compensation, if applicable, must be settled directly with the merchant.
In addition, certain advantages or services related to the card may be offered by a third party. We are not responsible for such offers or for the conduct or actions of such third parties. Any claim or dispute between you or an authorised user and a third party, including any right to compensation, if applicable, must be settled directly with the third party.
Section VIII. – Miscellaneous
23. You cannot sell the card on, nor can you assign to another any of your rights or obligations under these terms and conditions. We may assign any of our rights and obligations under these terms and conditions to any other person or business, subject to such party assuming our obligations under these terms and conditions.
24. If at any time part of these terms and conditions is found to be illegal, invalid or otherwise unenforceable, then this will not affect the legality, validity or enforceability of the rest of these terms and conditions. You have rights accorded by law. If part of these terms and conditions conflicts with any lawful right, then these terms and conditions will apply to the extent that they amend or negate the rights at law, but only to the extent permitted by law. Otherwise, these terms and conditions will be read subject to law. You must comply with New Zealand law (and the laws of any other country that apply to you) when using your card. This includes laws prohibiting money laundering or financing of terrorism, or prohibiting dealing with certain countries, people, or types of business. If you acquire the card for the purposes of a business, the card and associated services will not be subject to any of the guarantees in the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993.
Section IX. – Updates to these Payment Card Terms and Conditions
25. Breder Suasso Ltd may change any of these payment card terms and conditions by posting the amended terms and conditions at the Breder Suasso Ltd website, so as to:
– reflect any new services or practices, or any new developments;

However, we make no promise, nor do we provide a guarantee, to send such an email. In any case, we will not be liable or responsible for any loss or inconvenience caused by your inability to keep yourself informed of Breder Suasso’s prevailing terms and conditions, which become effective as soon as they are published on this website.
