1. INFORMATION ABOUT SOME KEY OBLIGATIONS WE HAVE
Credit Unsuitability Assessment
Before entering into a credit contract with you, or increasing a credit limit under an existing credit contract, we must make an assessment as to whether the credit contract or credit limit increase will be unsuitable for you.
To make this assessment, we must make reasonable inquiries about your requirements and objectives for the credit contract or credit limit increase. We must also make reasonable inquiries about your financial situation and take reasonable steps to verify this information.
A credit contract or credit limit increase will be unsuitable if at the time it is being provided to you it is likely that you will be unable to meet your financial obligations (e.g. repayments) under the credit contract, or are unable to so without substantial hardship. The contract will also be unsuitable if it does not meet your stated requirements or objectives.
If we assess that a proposed credit contract or credit limit increase is unsuitable for you, we cannot provide it to you.
Obtaining a copy of the assessment
You may request a copy of the assessment from us (at no cost to you) if we proceed to provide you with the credit contract or credit limit increase.
You can request a copy of the assessment before entering into the credit contract or obtaining the credit limit increase or at any time up to 7 years after you enter into the credit contract or your credit limit is increased. To request a copy of the assessment contact our Customer Support team:
Address: Suite 32,574 Plummer Street Port Melbourne, Vic 3207
Tel: 1300 856614
We are not required to provide you with a copy of the assessment where the credit contract or credit limit increase does not proceed.
