In respect to a Direct Debit Request (DDR) arrangement/s made between Bible League New Zealand and you, our service to you and your rights are set out below:
In terms of the Direct Debit Request arrangements made between us and signed by you, we undertake to periodically debit your nominated account for the agreed amount for the specified project chosen by you.
By signing a Direct Debit Request, you request and authorise us to arrange for funds to be debited from your account:
a) The amounts drawn will be as due under the agreement or any agreed variations to it thereafter or any greater amount which you, either of you, or a third party instruct us to draw, provided such instruction is given in the manner specified in the operating authority held by us in connection with your account.
b) We will arrange for funds to be debited from your account:
i. As requested and authorised in the Direct Debit Request;
ii. According to any notice sent by you specifying the amount payable and the date the payment is due;
c) The donation will be deducted from your nominated account on the 15th day of the month. If the due date for payment falls on a non-working day or a national public holiday, the payment will be processed on the next working day.
d) We will give you at least 14 days notice, in writing when changes to the initial terms of the arrangement are made. This notice will state any changes to the initial terms.
e) If you wish to discuss any changes to the initial terms please contact our office on 0800 242 537 between the hours of 9am to 5pm (Mon-Fri)
f ) It is your responsibility to ensure that you have sufficient funds in the nominated account when payments are to be drawn. If you do not have sufficient funds then the payment will be regarded as not having been made;

Any transaction fees payable by us in respect of the above will be considered a loss unless notified by you to add them to the next debit from your account.
