Visa® EquityAccess Card Disclosure
Why Disclosure is a Good Thing
Transactions which can be made using your Visa EquityAccess Card are indicated below. Please read this disclosure carefully because it tells you your rights and obligations for these transactions. You should keep this disclosure for future reference.
Use of your Visa EquityAccess Card may be restricted in certain countries due to security risks. Your card may be cancelled after 13 months of inactivity for security purposes.
ATM Transactions: Types of transactions and dollar limitations - You may access your Account(s) by ATM using your Visa EquityAccess Card and personal identification number ("PIN") to make cash withdrawals from your Home Equity Line Of Credit Account. The standard daily limit (per card, per calendar day) for cash withdrawals is the lesser of (i) the available credit on the Home Equity Line of Credit, or (ii) $500. Note: This service may not be available at all terminals.
Visa EquityAccess Card Transactions: Types of transactions and dollar limitations – You may use the Visa EquityAccess Card to obtain an advance from your Home Equity Line of Credit Account through the Visa network to purchase goods or pay for services, if the merchant permits, or obtain a cash advance at a Visa participating financial institution. This card cannot be used at Visa Debit-only merchants. It can only be used with Visa merchants who support credit transactions.
Your standard daily (calendar day) Visa Network limits are:
Recurring Preauthorized Card Payments
Charges For ATM Transactions
For non-TD Bank ATM transactions, the institution that owns the terminal (or the network) may assess a fee (surcharge) at the time of your transaction, including balance inquiries.
This card is not a debit card. Purchases and withdrawals are advanced from your Home Equity Line of Credit - it is a credit card. You will need to press the credit card key at point of sale terminals at merchant locations and sign for your purchases. There will be no fee for transactions at these terminals.
International Visa Card Transactions: The exchange rate between the transaction currency and the billing currency used for processing international ATM Card or Visa Debit Card transactions is a rate selected by Visa from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which may carry from the rate Visa itself receives, or the government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date. In addition, on all international Visa EquityAccess card transactions, the Bank may charge an international Service Assessment Fee of up to 1% (which will be shown as a separate charge on your statement) to offset the Bank's costs for Visa services.
Right to Documentation
Periodic Statements: Transactions conducted using your Visa EquityAccess Card will be reflected on the periodic statement you receive for your Home Equity Account.
Liability for Unauthorized Use
Under Visa's "Zero Liability" policy, you will generally not be liable for the unauthorized use of your Account or Access Card. Visa's "Zero Liability" policy does not apply to ATM transactions or to PIN transactions not processed by the Visa network. We may impose greater liability if we reasonably determine that the unauthorized transaction was caused by your gross negligence or fraudulent action, which may include your delay for an unreasonable time in reporting unauthorized transactions.
Billing Error Rights - Your Billing Rights
This notice contains important information about your rights and our
responsibilities under the Fair Credit Billing Act.
This notice contains important information about your rights and our responsibilities under the Fair Credit Billing Act.
Notify the Bank in case of errors or questions about your bill. If you think your bill is wrong, or if you need more information about a transaction on your bill write to the Bank on a separate sheet at the address below as soon as possible. The Bank must hear from you no later than 60 days after the Bank sent you the FIRST bill on which the error or problem appears. You can telephone the Bank, but doing so will not preserve your rights. In your letter, give the Bank the following information: (1.) your name and account number; (2.) the dollar amount of the suspected error; and (3.) a description of the error and an explanation, if you can, or why you believe there is an error. If you need more information, describe the item you are not sure about.
If you have authorized the Bank to pay your Home Equity Line of Credit Account bill automatically from your checking account, you can stop the payment on any amount you think is wrong. To stop the payment your letter must reach the Bank within three business days before the automatic payment is scheduled to occur.
Your Rights and the Bank's Responsibilities After the Bank Receives Your Written Notice
After the Bank receives your letter, it cannot try to collect any amount you question or report you as delinquent. The Bank can continue to bill you for the amount you question, including Finance Charges, and the Bank can apply any unpaid amount against your Credit Limit. You do not have to pay any questioned amount while the Bank is investigating, but you are still obligated to pay the parts of your bill that are not in question.
If the Bank finds that it made a mistake on your bill, you will not have to pay any Finance Charges related to any questioned amount. If the Bank didn't make a mistake, you may have to pay Finance Charges, and you will have to make up any missed payments on the questioned amount. In either case, the Bank will send you a statement of the amount you owe and the date that it is due. If you fail to pay the amount that the Bank thinks you owe, the Bank may report you as delinquent. However, if the Bank's explanation does not satisfy you and you write to the Bank within 10 days telling the Bank that you still refuse to pay, the Bank must tell anyone it reports you to that you have a question about your bill. And, the Bank must tell you the name to whom it reported you. The Bank must tell anyone it reports you to that the matter has been settled between us when it finally is.
If the Bank doesn't follow these rules, it cannot collect the first $50 of the questioned amount, even if your bill was correct.
