1.1.2 You have no reason to believe that your future salary payments will not be paid to you on or before each Payment Date, into the bank account (the Account) specified by you;
1.1.3 If the Account is a joint bank account, you have individual, full and unrestricted authority to offer debit card and direct debit payments from it;
1.1.4 You authorise us to debit the instalment due on each Payment Date by direct debit and/or debit card using the details you have provided for these purposes;
1.1.5 You are not a Borrower under any proceedings in bankruptcy and have no intention to file a petition for relief under the Insolvency Act 1986; and

2. REPAYMENTS BY DIRECT DEBIT AND CONTINUOUS PAYMENT AUTHORITY
2.1 We will contact you via email or text message at least three (3) days prior to a Payment Date to remind you when repayment is due. Please contact us if you are having repayment difficulties.
2.2 When you enter into this agreement you are required to provide us with a Continuous Payment Authority (CPA) to take the repayment from your account using your debit card. In addition, you may opt to provide us with a direct debit mandate.
For customers paying by debit card alone
2.3 If you choose not to provide a direct debit mandate, we will use CPA to try to collect the instalment due from your debit card on each Payment Date; if this attempt fails we shall make one further attempt on the day after the Payment Date to collect instalment due.
For customers opting to pay by direct debit or debit card
2.4 Where you provide us with both a direct debit mandate and your debit card details you expressly authorise us to use both methods to seek to take the instalment due. We may make up to two attempts to take the instalment due as follows:
Attempt one: by direct debit on the Payment Date (when we use direct debit we will seek to recover interest and capital on one direct debit mandate)
Attempt two: by debit card on the day we are notified by your bank that your direct debit payment has failed
Where we have made two consecutive failed attempts to collect the balance as outlined above we cannot make any further attempts to collect any further payments due, by direct debit or debit card, unless we have your express authority to do so. We will never seek to recover part-payment by CPA unless you give your express consent for us to do so.
2.5 You can cancel the direct debit or CPA by contacting us by email, telephone or post via the contact details shown below or by contacting your Bank directly. If you cancel either or both you must ensure that you have made alternative payment arrangements prior to the following Payment Dates to avoid going into default.
2.6 If a Payment Date under your agreement above falls on a Sunday or a bank holiday, then payment may be taken on the next working day.
2.7 Please note that separate payments made by debit card that are individually and expressly agreed with you do not fall within the definition of CPA and are not subject to the above provisions.
2.8 Where any attempt to recover repayment fails we will immediately try to contact you by phone, email and/or text message and find out why you have been unable to meet your repayment obligations. Please let us know if you are experiencing financial difficulty, we will treat you sympathetically and seek to assist you by agreeing alternative repayment arrangements and we may be able to freeze interest. Please note the adverse consequences of missing your payment, including the charges detailed below.
