TO AVOID PROBLEMS WHEN USING YOUR CARD, WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO NOT USE YOUR CARD IN THE SITUATIONS DESCRIBED IN SECTION 4.2 AND 4.3 OF THIS AGREEMENT.
The Card may allow you to access certain products and services provided by third parties other than DCBank, including, among other things, Third Party Services.

3.1 The Card belongs to us and you cannot transfer it or the Wallet to anyone else without our consent. The Card is for your use alone and you must comply with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. You must return the Card immediately when we request it.
3.2 You are responsible for all transactions initiated by use of the Card and for all losses as set out in Section 6. If you permit someone else to use the Card, you agree that we may refuse to authorize any transactions initiated by such person with the Card. However, if we authorize transactions by another person, we may treat such person as authorized by you to use the Card and you authorize us to debit the amount of such transactions from the Funds Available.
4. Using the card
4.1 The Card is a prepaid card, which means the Wallet must be loaded or preloaded with a certain amount of funds prior to use of the Card. Your card is not a credit card. We will only honour transactions up to the amount of the Funds Available. You must always make sure you have sufficient Funds Available to cover the transaction.
4.2 Except as provided in Section 5.3 below, the transaction will likely be declined if the Funds Available on your Card are not sufficient to complete the transaction, including any associated fees and taxes. You can ask the merchant if they will accept a split tender transaction. This will enable you to use the amount up to the amount of Funds Available and cover the difference with another form of payment. Merchants are not obliged to accept split tender transactions.
4.3 Certain merchants may place a hold on the Funds Available by way of a pre-authorized charge. This may happen when you rent a car, reserve a hotel room or pay for gas at the pump. You are able to use your Card in these situations, however, the amount of Funds Available will be reduced by the amount of the hold and, as a result, will not be available to you until the merchant releases the hold. For this reason, we recommend that you do not use your Card in these situations. You can still use your Card to pay for these services when the transaction is completed. For example, you can use your Card when you return the rental car, when you check out of your hotel room, or when purchasing gas.
4.4 Any funds which are loaded in the Wallet: (i) are not on deposit with DCBank; (ii) do not establish a separate individual deposit account; (iii) do not earn interest; and (iv) are not insured deposits under the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation Act.
4.5 You may access any Funds Available to complete POS Transactions. The Card includes a PIN and can be used to access any Funds Available to obtain cash at ATMs displaying one of the card network logos or other acceptance marks that are on the Card. When you use the Card, the amount of the purchase plus any applicable fees and taxes for the POS Transaction or ATM transaction will be deducted from the Funds Available.
4.6 We may, in our sole discretion and at any time, restrict your ability to conduct an ATM transaction or otherwise modify your use permissions in an ATM Transaction, which may include limiting the amount of funds that you can withdraw in such ATM transaction.
4.7 The Card will be valid and usable until the Funds Available are depleted or until the expiry date associated with the Card. Notwithstanding the expiry date associated with the Card, your right to use the Funds Available that are loaded in the Wallet will not expire. When the Card expires, you can obtain another Card by calling a Customer Support Representative. In order to load the Wallet, you may visit the merchant where you received the Card (if applicable) or you may otherwise visit the Website for additional options.
4.8 You agree to comply with all laws and not to use the Card for any illegal transactions, including the purchase of goods or services forbidden or not available to minors.
5. Funds available on the wallet
5.1 The Wallet may be associated with one or more Cards. You may only load the Wallet and use a Card up to the amounts described in the Limits Table above. You acknowledge and agree that DCBank may from time to time and at any time, in its sole and absolute discretion, amend the maximum amounts and limits provided in the Limits Table for any given period, with or without notice to you.
5.2 The time before funds become available may vary.
5.3 Your Card can only be used if the Funds Available on your Card are sufficient to cover your transaction, including any associated fees and taxes. Otherwise, the transaction will in most cases be declined. However, if an authorization should occur for any amount over the amount of Funds Available, due to an offline transaction or for any other reason, you acknowledge and agree that you are required to immediately repay us the amount that exceeds the Funds Available, regardless of how it was incurred. If you do exceed the Funds Available and don’t repay us the amount due plus any applicable fees within 30 days, you agree that we can share information about you and your use of the Card with consumer reporting agencies.
5.4 The Funds Available will decrease each time you use your Card for a transaction, or any time one of the fees identified in Section 7 are deducted.
5.5 If you do not have any Funds Available and you attempt three transactions while the Card has insufficient Funds Available, we will disable the Card to prevent any further transactions until you have a positive balance of Funds Available.
5.6 You may obtain information about the Funds Available by calling a Customer Service Representative at the number listed on the first page of this Agreement. For details on the transactions you made on your Card or to obtain a copy of the Agreement you can access the Website listed on the first page of this Agreement. To access the DCBank information you will need your user ID and password or other online authentication as allowed by DCBank from time to time.
5.7 It is your responsibility to obtain a paper record of each POS Transaction or ATM transaction for which you use the Card and ensure that it is accurate. DCBank is not responsible for providing you with any transaction record or periodic statement. If you identify an error in any transaction record, you must address such error with the applicable merchant or ATM operator. Furthermore, you must notify a Customer Service Representative by contacting the number listed on the first page of this Agreement within 30 days after the receipt is issued on which the problem or error appeared, failing which DCBank will not have any responsibility to assist you to rectify the situation.
5.8 If you mistakenly receive cash or credit that belongs to DCBank, a merchant or other party, you agree to reimburse DCBank for any such error or allow DCBank to correct such error by adjusting the amount of the Funds Available.
6. Your responsibility for lost, stolen or misused cards
6.1 You must take reasonable care to safeguard the Card and your PIN against loss, theft or misuse. You must not allow any person other than a Cardholder to use the Card. If you authorize or permit someone else to use the Card and/or PIN, you will be liable for all resulting transactions and any fees and losses incurred, even if the other person was a minor or did not comply with any limitations you placed on their use of the Card. You will be liable for all charges incurred in connection with the unauthorized use of the Card.
6.2 If you lose a Card, someone might be able to use the Card to access Funds Available. A Card may be used without a PIN to make purchases. You are solely responsible for the care and control of the Card and for maintaining the confidentiality of your PIN. You can safeguard your PIN by:
a. Not voluntarily disclosing it to anyone, including friends or family members;
b. Keeping your PIN separate from the Card; and
c. Not choosing a PIN selected from easily accessible information such as your name, date of birth, telephone numbers, address or social insurance number.
6.3 You must notify a Customer Service Representative by telephone within twenty-four (24) hours if you learn of the loss, theft or misuse of the Card, or if you know or suspect that someone else knows your PIN.
6.4 If someone uses the Card without your authorization, you will not be held responsible if:
a. You did not contribute to the unauthorized use
b. You used reasonable care to safeguard the Card and your PIN, and
c. You notified Customer Service Representative by telephone within twenty-four (24) hours after you learned of the loss, theft or misuse of the Card, or after you suspected that someone else knows your PIN.
If you do not meet the above conditions, you will be responsible for all the charges incurred in connection with the unauthorized use.
6.5 You agree to cooperate and help with any investigation that we conduct regarding the unauthorized use you reported before we will consider reimbursing you for any losses. This cooperation may include filing a report with law enforcement authorities.
6.6 If you report to us an erroneous Card transaction and our investigation reveals that it was not the fault of the merchant or ATM operator, we apply the Charge Back Fee described in the Card Fees Information Box above to the amount of Funds Available.
6.7 The toll-free number to call to notify a Customer Service Representative is listed on the first page of the Agreement. If you give a Customer Service Representative your name on the Card and the Card number, DCBank will refund any remaining Funds Available after we process all transactions that were completed before we had an opportunity to act on your information. You will be required to answer an identifying question drawn from your personal information. A replacement Card with any remaining Funds Available will be issued within 21 days after you report the Card lost or stolen to ensure that all transactions have been processed properly.
