7. Liability Provisions for all personal EFT Transactions
7.1. This clause sets out important rules which may govern an accountholder‘s liability for unauthorised transactions. These liability provisions are set out below and override clauses 8.1, 8.2, 8.3 and 8.4 to the extent of any conflict or inconsistency for all personal EFT transactions.
7.2. No accountholder liability in some circumstances
The accountholder is not liable for:
(a) losses that are caused by the fraudulent or negligent conduct of Medfin’s employees or agents or companies involved in networking arrangements or of merchants or of their agents or employees;
(b) losses arising because the Login ID and/or password is forged, faulty, expired, or cancelled;
(c) losses that arise from personal EFT transactions which required the use of multi-factor authentication and/or password and that occurred before the user underwent multi-factor authentication or received their password;
(d) losses that are caused by the same personal EFT transaction being incorrectly debited more than once to the same account;
(e) losses resulting from unauthorised transactions occurring after notification to Medfin that the security of the device used for multi-factor authentication and/or the password has been breached;
(f) losses resulting from unauthorised transactions where it is clear that the user has not contributed to such losses.
7.3. Accountholder liability for unauthorised transactions
The accountholder is liable for losses resulting from unauthorised transactions as provided below:
(a) Where Medfin can prove on the balance of probability that the user contributed to the losses through the user’s fraud or contravention of the security requirements in clause 7.4 the accountholder is liable for the actual losses which occur before Medfin is notified that the security of the device used for multi-factor authentication and/or the password has been breached
However the accountholder is not liable for any of the following amounts:
(i) that portion of the losses incurred on any one day which exceeds the applicable daily transaction limit(s)(if any);
(ii) that portion of the losses incurred in a period which exceeds any other periodic transaction limit(s) applicable to that period
(iii) that portion of the total losses incurred on any account which exceeds the balance of that account (including any prearranged credit);
(iv) all losses incurred on any accounts which the accountholder and Medfin had not agreed could be accessed using multi-factor authentication and/or password.
(b) The accountholder is also liable where Medfin can prove on the balance of probability that the user contributed to losses resulting from unauthorised transactions because the user unreasonably delayed notifying Medfin after becoming aware that the security of the device used for multi-factor authentication and/or the password has been breached. The accountholder will then be liable for the actual losses which occur between the time the user became aware and when Medfin was actually notified.
However, the accountholder will not be liable for any of the following amounts:
(i) that portion of the losses incurred on any one day which exceeds the applicable daily transaction limit(s)(if any);
(ii) that portion of the losses incurred in a period which exceeds any other periodic transaction limit(s)applicable to that period;
(iii) that portion of the total losses incurred on any account which exceeds the balance of the account (including any prearranged credit);
(iv) all losses incurred on any accounts which Medfin and the accountholder had not agreed could be accessed using multi-factor authentication and/or password.
(c) Where a multi-factor authentication and/or password was required to perform the unauthorised transactions and neither paragraph (a) nor (b) applies, the accountholder is liable for the least of:
(i) the balance of those account(s)(including any prearranged credit) from which value was transferred in the unauthorised transactions and which Medfin and the accountholder have agreed may be accessed using multi-factor authentication and/or the password; or
(ii) the actual loss at the time Medfin is notified (where relevant) that the security of the device used for multi-factor authentication and/or password has been breached (excluding that portion of the losses incurred on any one day which exceeds any applicable daily transaction or other periodic transaction limit(s)).
7.4. User’s password and multi-factor authentication responsibilities
(a) Where Medfin provides the user with a password and/or uses multi-factor authentication the user must:
(i) not voluntarily disclose the password or any access codes provided to the user as part of the multi-factor authentication to anyone including a family member or friend, except when you are creating a user;
(ii) not act with extreme carelessness in failing to protect the security of their device used for multi-factor authentication or the password; and
(iii) not record the password (without making any reasonable attempt to protect the security of the password record) on the one article or on several articles so that they are liable to loss or theft simultaneously.
(b) Where Medfin allows the user to select an password or change the user’s password the user must not select:
(i) a numeric code which represents the user’s birth date; or
(ii) an alphabetical code which is a recognisable part of the user’s name.
Either of these selections may mean you are liable for losses caused by unauthorised transactions caused by a breach of the security of the password.
7.5. Failure of Medfin equipment or Medfin system
Medfin will be liable to users for losses users suffer caused by the failure of Medfin’s equipment or Medfin’s system to complete a personal EFT transaction accepted by Medfin’s system or Medfin’s equipment in accordance with the user’s instructions.
However, where the user should have been aware that Medfin’s equipment or Medfin’s system was unavailable for use or malfunctioning Medfin’s responsibilities will be limited to the correction of any errors in the accountholder’s account and the refund of any charges or fees imposed on the accountholder as a result. Medfin will also not be liable for any losses caused by the failure of Medfin’s equipment or Medfin’s system where Medfin’s system or Medfin’s equipment had not accepted the personal EFT transaction.
7.6. Advising Medfin
If the user believes the security of the user’s password or the device used for multi-factor authentication has been breached the user must advise Medfin as soon as possible. Once Medfin has been notified of these matters the accountholder’s liability for further personal EFT transactions will be limited. Where telephone facilities for notification are not available during particular periods, any losses occurring during these periods that were due to non-notification are deemed to be the liability of Medfin, providing notification is made to Medfin within a reasonable time of the facility again becoming available. Medfin, will acknowledge the user’s report and the user should record or retain this acknowledgment.
8. Allocation of Liabilities for all transactions other than personal EFT transactions
8.1. You are not liable for any losses:
(a) where it is clear that a user has not contributed to those losses;
(b) that are caused by the fraudulent or negligent conduct of Medfin’s employees or agents;
(c) resulting from unauthorised transactions occurring after you notify Medfin that a user’s password has become known to someone else or the device used for multi-factor authentication has been compromised.
8.2. Where it is unclear whether or not a user has contributed to the losses resulting from unauthorised transactions on an account using the service, you are only liable to pay a maximum of $150.
8.3. Where it is clear that a user has contributed to the losses because a user has failed to comply with clauses 6.1 or 6.2 or you unreasonably delay in notifying Medfin under clause 6.5, then you are liable for those losses except for that portion of the losses incurred which exceed the balance of your account(s) (including any prearranged credit facility) or that portion of the losses incurred which exceed the total amount you are able to withdraw from your account(s) on the days the unauthorised use took place.
8.4. You acknowledge that, subject to your rights implied at law which cannot be excluded, Medfin is not liable for any loss or damage caused directly or indirectly to a user by:
(a) any breakdown or interruption in the service due to circumstances beyond Medfin’s control;
