(ii) allowing an additional cardholder to add their eligible Heritage Bank card to Apple Pay on their supported device.
For information on eligible Heritage Bank card and supported devices please visit heritage.com.au.
You can add an eligible Heritage Bank card to Apple Pay on supported devices. An additional cardholder may also add their eligible Heritage Bank card to Apple Pay on their supported device provided that:

(ii) if the person adding the card is not the sole account holder, each account holder of that account has agreed to the eligible Heritage Bank card being added to Apple Pay on the supported device; and

In some cases, you may temporarily exceed this limit, for example where systems are unavailable.

An eligible Heritage Bank card can be unlinked from Apple Pay by following the instructions in the wallet. You can also ask us to suspend or remove your cards from Apple Pay by calling us on 13 14 22.

Please call us promptly on 13 14 22 if:

(ii) your supported device's mobile service is suddenly disconnected without your permission (which may indicate you have been subject to mobile phone porting); or
(iii) you suspect a security breach in relation to your supported device or Apple Pay or that an unauthorised person has used your passcode, PIN of an eligible Heritage Bank card or your other credentials to access Apple Pay.
Based on your report, we will suspend use of your eligible Heritage Bank card with Apple Pay. This helps protect you as much as possible from additional loss or liability.
We warrant that we will comply with the ePayments Code. Your liability for unauthorised transactions will be determined in accordance to the ePayments Code. More terms which affect your liability in relation to transactions are set out in the relevant product terms.

(iii) your supported device is not left unattended, is locked when not in use, and up-to-date antivirus software is installed on it; and
(iv) any eligible Heritage Bank cards are unlinked/removed from your supported device before disposing of it.
If you fail to comply with any of the requirements in this clause, you are taken to have authorised others to make transactions using Apple Pay and you are responsible for their use of your eligible Heritage Bank card.
