The Customer agrees to be bound by the credit card payment authorisation form and/or Direct Debit Autopay form.

(F) In the event that the Customer fails to pay in full the amount stated in the Statement of Account by the Payment Due Date, HBC shall have the absolute discretion to charge late payment interests on the amount so unpaid, which is calculated from the last day of the Transaction Period until the last day of the month in which full payment is received by HBC (i.e. any period of less than a full month is treated as a full month for the purpose of charging interest under this Clause). Late payment interests shall be calculated at the rate of 3% per month on the outstanding amount (or such other rate as HBC may prescribe from time to time). The amount of late payment interest will be debited from the Customer’s Account without notice and shall not be refundable in any event.

(J) The Customer shall within such time as may be specified by HBC’s notice, procure a banker’s guarantee, security payment or such other collateral or security to HBC on terms that are acceptable to HBC, to guarantee all Charges due and owing by Customer from time to time, to support any Credit Limit approved by HBC and to secure the Customer’s performance of its obligations hereunder. HBC shall be entitled to make such request for the purpose of approving an application for Card issuance, ensuring payment obligations of the Customer under existing Credit Limit or an increase in Credit Limit. HBC may from time to time request for new, additional and/or replacement guarantees, security payments, collateral or security in its absolute discretion. HBC shall be entitled to suspend the use of the Card and/or demand payments to be made in advance until such guarantee, security payment, collateral or security is received. HBC shall be entitled to apply the collateral or security to settle all or any amounts due from the Customer and to cover all losses and damages that may be suffered by HBC due to failure of the Customer to observe or perform any of its obligations under these Terms and Conditions. If the Customer has duly settled all Charges and observed and performed all its obligations under these Terms and Conditions, such collateral or security will be returned to the Customer, without interest, as soon as practicable after the termination of the use of the Card in accordance with Clause 13. Without prejudice to the generality of the above, HBC reserves the right to impose a security payment of $500 (or a reasonable amount determined by HBC) per vehicle registered for the Customer’s Account.

(K) The Customer must notify HBC in writing of any dispute of any amount in the Statement of Account within 30 days from the date of the Statement of Account.

The Customer hereby authorises HBC at any time by written notice to the Customer to apply any credit balance (whether or not then due) to which the Customer is at any time beneficially entitled on any account, or which is held to the Customer’s order, in or towards satisfaction of any sum then due from the Customer to HBC and unpaid. HBC shall not be obliged to exercise its rights of set-off and appropriation under this Clause, which are without prejudice to and in addition to any other rights or lien to which it is at any time otherwise entitled (whether by operation of law, contract or otherwise).
