Apple Pay

  1. Terms and Conditions

The following terms and conditions apply where you add, use or remove a Latitude Card in Apple Pay on your eligible Apple Device.

These terms and conditions are in addition to the terms and conditions (also known as the Conditions of Use) that apply to your Latitude Card and account. The terms and conditions for your Latitude Card which relate to EFT transactions also extend to the use of Apple Pay in relation to your card.

If there is any inconsistency between the Conditions of Use applying to your Latitude Card and these terms and conditions, these terms and conditions will apply to the extent of that inconsistency.

Please note that these terms and conditions do not apply to the relationship between you and Apple, your telecommunications provider or any other third party who provides services or applications incorporated into Apple Pay. Apple, your telecommunication provider and those third parties impose their own terms and conditions.

  1. Adding and removing a Latitude Card on Apple Pay

You can add your Latitude Card to Apple Pay only on your eligible Apple Device so long as your Latitude Card or account is not cancelled, blocked, suspended or in default. You can remove your Latitude Card from Apple Pay at any time.

We will verify your identity when we do this and require that your mobile phone number and email address is up to date to enable this process.

You can find instructions on how to add or remove a Latitude Card at www. gemfinance.co.nz.

If we re-issue your Latitude Card due to misuse, loss or theft or a breach of the card’s PIN or password we will keep you moving by securely replacing your lost or stolen credit card directly in Apple Pay on your Apple Device.

 

  1. Using Apple Pay

You can use Apple Pay to authorise transactions on your account by using the Apple Device instead of a Latitude Card at a contactless payment terminal or in an application on an Apple Device or online where Apple Pay is supported.

You will be required to manually enter the Latitude Card PIN for transactions in certain cases (e.g. where a transaction is over $80).

You must give us all the information that you have or can reasonably obtain regarding the unauthorised use, loss or theft.

If you suspect an unauthorised transaction in respect of an additional cardholder, you must suspend or close the Latitude Card of the additional cardholder by calling the Customer Solutions number on the back of your Latitude Card or on the Latitude website.
