PRODUCT PURCHASES, QUANTITY AND PRICE
- Suncor shall sell or cause to be sold to the Customer, and the Customer agrees to purchase from Suncor or its dealers or agents, at authorized Petro-Pass sites and retail outlets ("Suncor fuelling 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 Suncor'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.
- Suncor 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 Suncor’s internal requirement, a line of credit is established for Customers based on the estimated purchases provided by the Customer to Suncor 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. Suncor may change the line of credit at anytime without notifying the Customer in advance.
- The Customer agrees to pay Suncor 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, Suncor is entitled to debit the Customer's account for the amount of any discount provided to the Customer by Suncor for the period of the indebtedness, or cease offering or discontinue any discount that the Customer receives or may receive from Suncor 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, CREDIT TERMS AND CONDITIONS
- Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Suncor 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
- The Customer is responsible for the care, control and safekeeping of all Cards, keeping the personal identification number (PIN) confidential and ensuring that the PIN is kept separate from the Card at all times. In the event that the SuperPass Card is lost or stolen, the Customer shall immediately notify Suncor (by contacting Suncor’s Customer Service network at 1-800-668-0220) and the police. The Customer shall be under no liability in respect of purchases made with the Card subsequent to the time of call or actual receipt of written notification by Suncor, but the Customer shall in all circumstances be liable for all purchases made prior to the time of call or actual receipt of such written notification by Suncor.
RESPONSIBILITY FOR DISCREPANCIES ON INVOICES AND STATEMENTS
- As the Customer remains responsible for any and all purchases on its SuperPass card(s), as described in Section 6, the Customer must be diligent in its review and monitoring of its statements. If the Customer finds any discrepancy, irregularity or inaccuracy of any kind in the purchases made on the customer’s SuperPass card and displayed on its statement, the Customer shall notify Suncor by phone or in writing within sixty (60) days from the purchase date shown on the statement. Where any such discrepancy, irregularity or inaccuracy is not brought to the attention of Suncor within such sixty (60) day period, Suncor will not agree to deal with any of such transactions and the Customer shall remain responsible for all of such purchases on its SuperPass Card.
- The Customer is responsible for all indebtedness resulting from the authorized or unauthorized use of the SuperPass Cards. 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 Suncor of notice from the Customer in accordance with clause 4.
- Suncor will use reasonable commercial efforts to ensure that all of its associates adhere to the purchasing restrictions and limit restrictions on a SuperPass Card. However, it is understood and agreed by the Customer, that these restrictions are for the Customer’s convenience only, and Suncor cannot be held and is not responsible for purchases exceeding these restrictions.
The Customer undertakes and agrees with Suncor that it shall at all times during the continuance of this Agreement, observe and perform, all the terms and conditions set out in this Agreement, including without limitation, the following:
- to reimburse Suncor all costs and expenses (including, without limitation, legal fees on a full indemnity basis) which Suncor may pay, incur or sustain in relation to any action taken to enforce the terms or conditions of this Agreement against the Customer.
- Where the Customer has incurred any liability to Suncor whether under this Agreement or under any other Agreement entered into between Suncor and Customer, Suncor shall be at liberty and with notice to the Customer to set-off the amount of such liability against any sum of monies due to the Customer.
CONSENT AND DISCLOSURE
- Customer agrees that Suncor may collect and exchange credit and other information from recognized credit bureaus and other credit grantors for the purposes of ongoing credit investigations, monitoring credit status, and in the event the account is not paid as agreed, Suncor may report the customer’s liability for and the status of the account to credit bureaus and others who may lawfully receive such information.
- Customer also agrees that, from time to time, and in the event that the customer is a non-incorporated business, is a sole-proprietor, partner or partnership that consumer reports containing credit information on the individual may be requested from and received from credit reporting agencies.
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. The Customer shall not, in any way, issue, resell or provide the SuperPass Card to a third party without the consent of Suncor. Notwithstanding any of these Terms and Conditions, Suncor 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 Suncor's option, become immediately due and payable notwithstanding the provisions of clause 2. The SuperPass Card is and remains the property of Suncor and shall be surrendered on demand. Suncor 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 Suncor 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, Suncor reserves the right to place purchase limits on the amount of automotive fuels that the Customer is entitled to purchase from Suncor, including no fuel at all.
