1. Credit Limit for your XXXXXXX Account and Available Credit
Your XXXXXXX Credit Limit is the maximum amount you may borrow under this XXXXXXX Agreement. It is set out in your Commitment and in the Statement of Disclosure provided to you.
Every time you use your XXXXXXX Account, the amount of money available to you under the XXXXXXX Credit Limit decreases. We calculate how much is available under the XXXXXXX Account by deducting the amount you owe us from the XXXXXXX Credit Limit. We will advise you of your available credit under the XXXXXXX Account as part of the XXXXXXX Statement that we send to you for your XXXXXXX Account.
You agree that we may, at our discretion, reduce or terminate your XXXXXXX Credit Limit without prior notice to you. Any reduction or termination of your XXXXXXX Credit Limit does not necessarily mean the termination of the XXXXXXX Account or any Mortgage Loan. If your XXXXXXX Credit Limit is decreased, all amounts owing to us in excess of the new XXXXXXX Credit Limit will become immediately payable and must be repaid to us without delay. We will not increase your XXXXXXX Credit Limit without your consent.
To accommodate your future borrowing needs, or at your request, we may register the card in an amount that exceeds the amount of your XXXXXXX Credit Limit.
You may, subject to our approval, re-borrow amounts repaid by you on a Mortgage Loan, in an amount that does not exceed the XXXXXXX Limit. You may have to sign a new agreement for the amount you re-borrow.
You agree that if we let you borrow more than your XXXXXXX Credit Limit, you are responsible for, and must pay on demand, the amount that exceeds the XXXXXXX Credit Limit, plus interest and fees.
You acknowledge that any XXXXXXX Account is made available to you in our sole discretion and we may terminate the XXXXXXX Account and/or demand payment of all amounts owing by you under this XXXXXXX Agreement or any amending agreement, at any time without prior notice to you, particularly, but without limiting our rights, upon a re-evaluation of your financial situation or if you are in default under this XXXXXXX Agreement, any amending agreement, or any other agreement with us.
You agree that our books and records shall be conclusive evidence of the amounts owing under your XXXXXXX Agreement and the interest rates applicable to the amounts owing.
2. Accessing and Using Your XXXXXXX Account
You can use the credit available, up to the amount of the XXXXXXX Credit Limit, to borrow from us by any method that we agree to, including:
(i) Access Card;
(ii) XXXXXXX Cheques; or
(iii) Any other method we authorize you to obtain an advance.
You must not use your XXXXXXX Account in any way that would cause the Outstanding Balance to exceed the XXXXXXX Credit Limit.
If more than one borrower signs the Commitment which incorporates this XXXXXXX Agreement (“Multiple XXXXXXX Borrowers”), any one of you can borrow money up to the amount of your XXXXXXX Credit Limit without the other’s consent. For further clarity, guarantors are not allowed to access the XXXXXXX Account.
You acknowledge that you will only use the XXXXXXX Cheques, the Access Card and the XXXXXXX Account generally, for personal, family or household purposes and only for valid and lawful Authorized Transactions. You will pay us for all transactions made using the XXXXXXX Account, including transactions made by a person authorized by you or non-permissible transactions. We may decline some transactions or refuse to pay XXXXXXX Cheques issued by you and we will not be liable for any losses suffered by you or any third person as a result of such denial or refusal. We will not be liable if a merchant, a business or an ATM does not accept your Access Card or any XXXXXXX Cheque for any reason. Your use of the XXXXXXX Account through the Access Card or XXXXXXX Cheques is always subject to any legal restrictions or regulations that the government or other applicable authority may impose.

If you are provided with an Access Card, the Terms and Conditions, as amended from time to time governing the use of the Access Card set out in Schedule 1, will apply to your use of the Access Card. Your use of the Access Card will be further evidence that you acknowledge and agree to the Terms and Conditions set out in Schedule 1. XXXXXXX Cheques: Once your XXXXXXX Account is approved, we will provide you with an initial set of XXXXXXX Cheques, free of charge. If you would like to request additional XXXXXXX Cheques, you can do so by calling XXXXXXXXXX. Please note that there is a fee associated with ordering additional XXXXXXX Cheques after the initial order that we send you for free. Additionally, please note that you may only write XXXXXXX Cheques in Canadian dollars. If there are Multiple XXXXXXX Borrowers, any one of them may sign a XXXXXXX Cheque without the other’s knowledge or consent.
We will issue XXXXXXX Cheques to each borrower on the XXXXXXX Account. You are responsible for safeguarding all XXXXXXX Cheques and you acknowledge that you will surrender all unused XXXXXXX Cheques immediately upon request from us.
It is your responsibility to notify us immediately if any XXXXXXX Cheques are lost or stolen to avoid liability for any transactions unauthorized by you. If you wish to dispute any XXXXXXX Cheque transaction or entry on your XXXXXXX Statement, you must provide written notice to us at Customer Service, Aliaswire Bank, XXXXXXXXXXXX (your address) as soon as possible after you notice such error. Do not send the notice on or with your payment. We must receive your notice no later than thirty (30) days of the date of the XXXXXXX Statement containing the disputed entry. We will acknowledge receipt of your written notice within thirty (30) days.
3. Charging You Interest on the XXXXXXX
Interest is initially charged at the Interest Rate set out in the Statement of Disclosure that was provided to you. The current Interest Rate will also be set out on your XXXXXXX Statement.

Notice of any change to your Interest Rate will be provided in accordance with Section 15 of this XXXXXXX Agreement entitled “Changing the XXXXXXX Account”.

Cash Advances: There is no interest-free grace period on cash advances, which include the use of XXXXXXX Cheques and any initial cash advance you received when you first opened the XXXXXXX Account and cash advances obtained through the use of the Access Card including, but not limited to, cash advances from ATMs. Interest will be charged on all cash advances beginning on the transaction date of the cash advance, at the Interest Rate shown on your XXXXXXX Statement.
