- PRODUCT PURCHASES, QUANTITY AND PRICE
The Corporation shall sell or cause to be sold to the Customer, and the Customer agrees to purchase from the Corporation or its dealers or agents, at authorized Petro-Pass sites and retail outlets ("SuperPass facilities") and by use of the SuperPass Card, an annual quantity of automotive fuel based upon the Customer's estimated monthly purchases. The price for automotive fuel purchased by the Customer at authorized retail outlets shall be the price indicated on the pump for the grade purchased at the time and place of purchase less the approved discount then in effect, if any. The price for automotive fuel purchased at authorized Petro-Pass sites shall be the Corporation's price in force for the Customer for the grade purchased at the time and place of purchase. The price for goods and services purchased by the Customer shall be the posted price at the time and place of purchase. All applicable Federal and Provincial sales and goods and services taxes are included in the price. Volume and/or market based pricing/discounts may be periodically adjusted to reflect the quantities actually being purchased by the Customer.
The Corporation assumes no liability for the failure of any SuperPass Card to be honoured at any time.
- PAYMENT TERMS AND LINE OF CREDIT
As part of Petro-Canada’s internal requirement, a line of credit is established for Customers based on the estimated purchases provided by the Customer to Corporation on the application. The Customer does not request a line of credit. Depending on the usage by the Customer, the balance of the account could exceed the line of credit. The Corporation may change the line of credit at anytime without notifying the Customer in advance.
The Customer remains responsible and agrees to pay for all purchases made on or with the SuperPass Card regardless of whether the line of credit has been exceeded or not, and regardless of whether or not such purchases were made under the authority (express or implied or ostensible) of the Customer, or whether the purchases were made on a SuperPass Card that was active or dormant, provided that in the case of loss, misplacement, theft or misuse of the SuperPass Card such responsibility shall cease upon receipt by the Corporation of notice from the Customer in accordance with clause 4.
The Corporation will use reasonable commercial efforts to ensure that all of its associates adhere to the purchasing restrictions and limit restrictions on a SuperPass Card. It is understood and agreed by the Customer, however, that these restrictions are for the Customer's convenience only, and the Corporation cannot be held and is not responsible for purchases exceeding these restrictions.
The Customer agrees to pay the Corporation the full amount of all purchases of fuel, goods and services, including all applicable federal and provincial sales and goods and services taxes, in respect of which the SuperPass Card has been used, together with a credit charge thereon, as applicable.
Should the Customer not provide payment in full of the indebtedness in accordance with these Terms and Conditions and their statement, the Corporation is entitled to debit the Customer's account for the amount of any discount provided to the Customer by the Corporation for the period of the indebtedness, or cease offering or discontinue any discount that the Customer receives or may receive from the Corporation on purchases made using the SuperPass Card.
For accounts on monthly billing, if full payment of the new balance is not received by the payment due date, Customer agrees that credit charges will accrue at a rate of 2% per month (24% per annum nominal rate compounded monthly) from the transaction date to the date it is paid in full. Such credit charges will be reflected on the Customer’s next statement.
For accounts on weekly billing, if full payment of the new balance is not received by the payment due date, Customer agrees that credit charges will accrue at a daily rate of 0.06575% (24% per annum nominal rate compounded weekly) from the transaction date to the date it is paid in full. Such credit charges will be reflected on the Customer’s next statement.
- CHANGES TO PRICE, TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Corporation reserves the right to modify the credit terms or change any price/discount from time to time in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
- RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOST OR STOLEN CARDS
In the event that the SuperPass Card is lost or stolen, the Customer shall immediately notify the Corporation and the police.
- CANCELLATION AND RESTRICTION OF USE OF CARD
The SuperPass Card, including any renewal or replacement card, shall be valid until the date appearing thereon unless it has been previously cancelled. Notwithstanding any of these Terms and Conditions, the Corporation may, acting reasonably, cancel the SuperPass Card at any time. Use of the SuperPass Card after the SuperPass Card has been cancelled as aforesaid is illegal and fraudulent. Upon cancellation of the SuperPass Card for any reason, the entire balance of the Customer's indebtedness shall, at the Corporation's option, become immediately due and payable notwithstanding the provisions of clause 2. The SuperPass Card is and remains the property of the Corporation and shall be surrendered on demand. The Corporation may revoke the Customer’s right to use the SuperPass Card with or without cause and without giving notice to the Customer.
In the event that the Corporation is limited, for whatever reason, in its ability to supply automotive fuel to any or all its facilities or to the market, and without being required to declare it an event of force majeure, the Corporation reserves the right to place purchase limits on the amount of automotive fuels that the Customer is entitled to purchase from the Corporation, including no fuel at all.
- USE OF FACILITIES
The Customer shall use the Corporation's SuperPass facilities only for the fuelling of properly licensed vehicles used for commercial, industrial or governmental purposes, and for the purchase of goods and services. The Customer shall be familiar and comply with, and shall ensure that its employees, servants and agents are familiar and comply with, all applicable automotive fuel handling laws, regulations and rules of any government or government agency, or safety and operating rules and procedures of the Corporation as posted at the Corporation's SuperPass facilities. The Customer shall ensure that each of its employees, servants and agents who may use the SuperPass Card issued to Customer has been instructed in the safe operation of a SuperPass facility and the proper response to automotive fuel handling emergencies, including the location and use of fire extinguishers and emergency telephone numbers.
The Customer and its employees, servants and agents shall use the Corporation's SuperPass facilities and enter upon the lands at the SuperPass facilities entirely at their own risk.
The Customer shall be responsible for and indemnify and save harmless the Corporation, its directors, officers, employees, servants, agents, successors and assigns (the "Indemnitees") from any and all loss, liability, damage, cost, claim, expense, suit or action (including without limitation, environmental remediation costs and legal costs) which the Indemnitees or any of them may sustain or become subject to as a result of any damage to property (including automotive fuel and other property owned by the Corporation and property owned by others) or injury to person or persons arising out of or in connection with the Customer's use of any of the Corporation's SuperPass facilities or the Customer's entry upon or use of the lands at any of the Corporation's SuperPass facilities except where shown to have been caused by the negligence or willful misconduct of the Corporation or its employees.
The Customer shall, without limiting its liability hereunder, obtain, pay the premiums on and keep in force so long as the SuperPass Card issued to the Customer is valid, such general liability insurance as may be required by applicable automotive fuel handling laws or as a prudent businessman would obtain to cover losses for which the Customer may be responsible as set out above.
