Funds do not qualify for insurance by the Canadian Deposit Insurance Corporation or the Deposit Insurance Corporation of Ontario. Cardholders will not receive interest on the prepaid balance of their Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card.

8. Use of Card. You may use your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card for the following transactions:

• To make purchases everywhere MasterCard® is accepted electronically.

• For Reloadable Personalized Cards, to obtain cash from participating ATMs that accept MasterCard® or Cirrus network cards, or from participating financial institutions. Note that ATM operators may charge an additional fee for any service including balance inquiries outside of this agreement.

• Use of an Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card is subject to all rules and customs of MasterCard®, and any other clearinghouse or network involved in a transaction, load, or reload.

9. Preauthorized Payments and Recurring Automatic Transactions: If you have preauthorized payments using your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card, you can stop any of these payments. Simply call us at 1 (855) 879-4010, or e-mail us at members@newbridgeadvantage.com, at least 5 business days before the payment is scheduled to be made. If you call, we may also require you to put your request in writing and provide us with a copy of your notice to the payee revoking the payee’s authority to debit your card. If we do not receive the written confirmation within the time frame required, we may honor subsequent debits to your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card. While using the Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card for recurring automatic transactions is permissible, it is the responsibility of the cardholder to monitor the card balance to make sure it is sufficient to cover the transactions. Because your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card is prepaid and does not carry a credit line, a merchant that you have authorized to submit recurring transactions may suspend or cancel your service if the card does not have enough value when the recurring transaction is submitted.

10. Cardholder Responsibilities. The Cardholder is responsible for:

• always knowing your card balance and maintaining adequate value on your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card to pay for each transaction and all applicable fees. If you attempt to make a transaction for more than the value available on your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card, the transaction may be declined. You can check your card balance anytime by calling 1 (855) 879-4010 (charges may apply) or online at www.NewbridgeAdvantage.com;

• obtaining paper records of each POS or ATM transaction for which you use your Card and ensuring that the transaction record is accurate;

• obtaining paper records of each activation or reload transaction and ensuring that the transaction record is accurate;

• agreeing that we may deduct the amount of your transactions and applicable fees, and any other amount owed to us in connection with any Reloadable Personalized Card, directly from the balance of your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card;

• paying us immediately on demand if, for any reason, your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card does not have a sufficient balance to cover the amount of a transaction and amounts owed to us;

•  not authorizing anyone else to use your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card, or transfer your card to anyone. You are not permitted to resell your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card;

You can notify us by calling 1 (855) 879-4010. Refer to “Lost or Stolen Cards; Your Liability for Unauthorized Use of Your Card or PIN.”;

• agreeing to cooperate with us in our investigation of any possible unauthorized use of your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card.

11. Amendments to fees and terms of this agreement: We reserve the right at any time to amend, change, delete or add to this Agreement and to apply any such modification to the Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card that has been issued to you and to the value on your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card. We will provide you notice of any such modification as required by applicable law. If any changes are made for security purposes, we reserve the right to implement such change without prior notice. Any amendments to this agreement and the fees and services charges will be updated online at www.NewbridgeAdvantage.com from time to time. If we decide not to enforce our rights or charge a fee in one situation, we are not giving up our right to enforce it or to charge the fee in a later situation.

12. Refunds and Merchant / ATM Provider Disputes: If you are entitled to a refund for any reason, you agree to accept a credit to your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card instead of a cash refund, if the merchant does not provide cash refunds. You will settle all disputes regarding purchases you make using your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card directly with the merchant who honored the card. We are not responsible for the delivery, quality, safety, legality or any other aspect of any goods or services that you purchase from merchants with your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card. We are not responsible for any disputes arising out of the purchase of goods or services using the Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card or the failure of any merchant to honour the Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card or the failure of any ATM machine to dispense cash.

13. When Value on Your Card is Available: Our policy is to make value that you load available to you for use up to 5 business days after your requested fund transfer request is sent to your bank for processing through our personal member portal at www.NewbridgeAdvantage.com.

14. Authorizations and Authorization Holds: When you use your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card to pay for goods or services, certain merchants may ask us to authorize the transaction in advance and may estimate its final value. When we authorize the transaction, we commit to make the requested funds available when the transaction finally settles and may place a temporary hold on your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card’s available funds for the amount indicated by the merchant. Some merchants may also add an amount to ensure that sufficient funds will be available to cover the final transaction (such as an estimated tip). If the amount of the authorization request exceeds the value on your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card, the transaction may be declined. Transactions at certain merchants that authorize high dollar amounts, especially rental car companies and hotels, may cause an “authorization” or a “hold” on your available balance for up to 90 days. Until the transaction finally settles or we determine that it is unlikely to be processed, the funds subject to the hold will not be available to you for other purposes. We will however, only charge your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card for the correct amount of the final transaction, and will release any excess amount only when the transaction finally settles. Please note that we may not manually release authorizations without a certified letter or fax from the merchant. In addition, if you commence a purchase and the merchant obtains an authorization, and then you cancel the purchase without completing it, the authorization may still result in a temporary hold for that amount of funds for 10 days, or longer in some cases.

15. Sharing Information About You: We will disclose information to third parties about your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card or the transactions, loads, and reloads you make:

• Where it is necessary for completing transactions, loads, or reloads;

• In order to verify the existence and condition of your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card for a third party, such as a credit bureau or merchant;

• In order to comply with government agency or court orders;

• If you give us express permission; and

• As otherwise provided in our Privacy Policy

Please refer to our Privacy Policy that accompanies this Agreement. You hereby agree to our collection, use, and sharing of information about you and your Newbridge

Advantage MasterCard® Card as provided in our Privacy Policy, which is made a part of this Agreement.

16. Statements or Transaction History: You can view your account information and transaction history online at www.NewbridgeAdvantage.com.

17.  No Liability: We will not be liable (a) if, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money available on your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card to complete a transaction; (b) if the ATM, bank, or merchant where you are trying to obtain cash does not have enough cash; (c) if the system, ATM or POS terminal was not working properly; (d) if circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood) prevent or delay a transaction, load, or reload from being completed, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken; (e) if you attempt to use a Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card that has not been properly activated or; (f) if your Personalized Reloadable Card has been reported as lost or stolen, has been suspended by us, or we have reason to believe a transaction was not authorized by you.

18. Foreign Transactions: If your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card is used in a transaction that is submitted to the MasterCard® networks in a currency other than CDN [Canadian] dollars, MasterCard® will convert the transaction amount into CDN dollars using its currency conversion procedure. Under the currency conversion procedure that MasterCard® currently uses, the non-CDN dollar transaction amount is converted into a CDN dollar amount by multiplying the transaction amount in the non-CDN dollar currency by a currency conversion rate. The currency conversion rate that MasterCard® typically uses is either a government-mandated rate, or a wholesale rate provided to MasterCard®. The currency conversion rate that MasterCard® uses for a particular transaction is the rate MasterCard® uses for the applicable currency when the transaction is processed. This rate may differ from the rate in effect when the transaction occurred or when it was posted to your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card, and may be higher than the rate you could have gotten if you had converted CDN dollars into cash. If a transaction initially in a foreign currency is converted to CDN dollars before it is entered into the MasterCard® network, the conversion rates and fees of the company that did the conversion will apply. We charge a fee of 2.49% of the dollar amount of each transaction that you make in a country other than Canada, whether or not the transaction was in a foreign currency.

19.  Termination; Expiration: We may, at any time, suspend your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card and your ability to use your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card, for any reason allowed by law, such as if we suspect possible fraud or suspicious activity, or for security reasons. Your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card will expire on any expiration date on the card. Upon termination or expiration, we may stop accepting reloads to and/or transactions from your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card and we may decline to authorize a transaction made to the Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card. If we terminate your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card or it expires, and we do not provide a substitute or replacement card, we will return to you any value remaining less a cancellation fee; unless prohibited by law. You remain responsible for any use of your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card even after the card is terminated or expires. To the extent permitted by law, you agree to pay attorneys’ fees and collection costs we incur in collecting amounts you owe us and enforcing our rights under this Agreement.

20. Dormant: If your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card has a negative balance, or there has been no activity on your Card for 60 days and your Card balance is less than $10, we will put your Card into a dormant state. A service fee will apply to reactivate your Card.

21. Discontinuance of Service: If we cease to provide services for the cards and if you have a positive balance at the time your card becomes deactivated, we may arrange for a new card to be issued to you by a different supplier whereby your card balance will be transferred to the new card or we may issue a payment to you for the amount of the card balance subject to certain terms and conditions that may apply at that time.

22. Lost or Stolen Cards; Your Liability for Unauthorized Use of your Card or PIN: Notify us immediately if you believe your Newbridge Advantage MasterCard® Card or PIN has been lost or stolen by calling 1 (855) 879-4010 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Under the MasterCard® Zero Liability Protection for Lost & Stolen Cards (http://www.mastercard.ca/zero-liability.html), you will not be liable for any unauthorized POS transactions made with your lost or stolen card provided you have exercised reasonable care in safeguarding your card from any unauthorized use and have not been grossly negligent or have engaged in fraud. This policy does not apply to ATM transactions where the PIN is used.  You are responsible for the full amount of all activity and unauthorized or fraudulent activity resulting from the use of your Card when the PIN is used. Once you report your Card lost or stolen, we will immediately cancel your Card and issue a replacement Card and transfer the remaining balance from your cancelled card after all transactions have been processed. A replacement card fee will apply.
