1. This Direct Debit Request Service Agreement (Agreement) sets out the terms and conditions on which you have authorised us, CityLink Melbourne Limited (ABN: 65 070 810 678) (CML), to automatically deduct amounts that become due and payable to your Linkt Account from your bank account at your financial institution. Your Direct Debit Request (DDR) authorises us to arrange for the payment of amounts due to us, and at the times required, for the tolls, fees and charges you have incurred in your use of CityLink.
2. Direct Debit through the Bulk Electronic Clearing System (BECS) is not available on all bank accounts. If you are unsure as to whether direct debit is available on your account, you should check with your financial institution. You should also check your account details against a recent statement from your financial institution. You are responsible for ensuring that your financial institution allows direct debits to be processed on your nominated account. If you are uncertain as to how to complete this DDR, please check with your financial institution.
3. We can amend this Direct Debit Request Service Agreement at any time after giving you a minimum of 14 days’ notice. We can vary any of the debit arrangements after giving you a minimum of 14 days’ notice.
4. You can cancel, vary, defer or suspend the DDR, or stop an individual debit from taking place under this Agreement by contacting us on the contact details below. You will need to allow a minimum of 14 days before the next drawing date to process your request or the debit may still be made. Stop and cancellation requests can also be directed to your financial institution.
5. If a payment due date falls on a weekend or a Victorian or national public holiday, the debit will be processed on the next business day. If you are unsure as to when a debit will be processed you should ask your financial institution.
6. You must ensure that you have sufficient clear funds available in your nominated account on the due date to permit the payment under the DDR. If funds are not available you will need to arrange an alternative payment method and contact us. If we attempt to debit your bank account unsuccessfully you may subsequently enter our debt collection cycle and be charged a dishonour fee.
7. If CML incur any bank fees or charges as a result of a dishonoured direct debit, these fees may be passed on to you as a charge on your Linkt Account.
8. If you believe there has been an error in debiting your account, you should notify us immediately on the contact details below, and confirm that notice in writing to us as soon as possible so that we can resolve your query.

If we conclude as a result of our investigations that your account has been incorrectly debited we will respond to your query by arranging for your financial institution to adjust your account (including interest and charges) accordingly. We will also notify you in writing of the amount by which your account has been adjusted.
If we conclude as a result of our investigations that your account has not been incorrectly debited we will respond to your query by providing you with reasons and any evidence for this finding in writing.
9. We will keep information about your financial institution account confidential except to the extent necessary to resolve any claim you may make relating to a debit which you claim has been made incorrectly, or as otherwise required by law.
