(b) if you wish to purchase insurance in accordance with a quote provided to you via the Main Site, then, upon completion by you of all required details, step two enables you to accept that quote and create a binding insurance agreement with a corresponding policy number.
29.3.3. When entering into a contract via the Main Site in accordance with these terms, you will be taken to have communicated your acceptance to an offer of insurance from us only when:
(a) the Electronic Instruction containing the acceptance from you enters and is recorded in our the main database or relevant Suncorp Group database (both collectively referred to in this term as "Relevant Database");
(b) a record is created and stored in the Relevant Database;
(c) a policy number is generated by the Relevant Database; and
(d) we receive all required details of a current and valid payment card or current and valid financial institution account number (in either case a card/account which you are authorised to use and which is of a card/account type accepted by us), and to which we are able to charge/debit the premium.
29.3.4. A binding insurance contract is conditional on our being able to successfully charge against your nominated payment card or debit your financial institution account number, and receipt of payment of your applicable premium (either by a single payment or where permitted in instalments).
29.3.5. Where you enter a transaction with us via the Main Site, a policy number will be issued by us via the Main Site. However, a binding insurance agreement is not conditional on the issuance or receipt by you of a policy number but is conditional upon our receiving your premium payment or your current and valid payment card (or financial institution account number) details and a valid policy commencement date election. Therefore, the failure by you to receive a policy number via the Main Site does not invalidate or otherwise prejudice the existence of an insurance contract or transaction entered into using the Main Site.
29.3.6. We may or may not, in our sole discretion, issue a paper confirmation of the insurance policy. The existence of a binding contract is not conditional on the issuing of, or you receiving, a paper confirmation of the transaction.
29.3.7. You are responsible for ensuring that you receive a policy number and should contact us if one is not received.
29.3.8. For the benefit of doubt, the terms and conditions of this term 29.3 apply only to certain applications for or purchases of insurance products conducted electronically via the Main Site and in circumstances where we make an express electronic offer to you. These terms do not apply where the purchase occurs by way of written paper-based application or other non-electronic application.
29.4. Renewal payments
29.4.1. The Main Site may offer an online facility for renewal payment of certain insurance policies with selected payment cards.
29.4.2. The policy renewal notice will indicate whether online renewal payment is available.
29.4.3. When the renewal payment facility is available, an online renewal payment can be made by following the online instructions on the Main Site.
29.4.4. When making a payment for a policy renewal via the Main Site, you will be taken to have renewed that policy only when:
(a) the Electronic Instruction containing the policy number, premium amount due and payment card details, and an instruction from you to renew the policy, enters and is recorded in the Relevant Database;
(b) we receive all required details of a current and valid payment card which you are authorised to use, which is of a payment card type accepted by us, and to which we are able to charge the premium;
(c) a record is created and stored in the Relevant Database;
(d) a receipt number is generated by the Relevant Database; and
(e) the Relevant Database is updated with information from the payment database.
29.4.5. A binding insurance contract is conditional on our being able to successfully charge against your nominated payment card and receipt of payment of all applicable renewal amounts due for the policy (or policies) being renewed (either in a single payment or where permitted in instalments).
29.4.6. We may, in our sole discretion, issue a paper confirmation of the renewal payment. The existence of a valid payment is not conditional on the issuing of, or you receiving, a paper confirmation of the transaction.
29.5 Cancelling insurance policies
29.5.1. Where the Main Site (which includes My Suncorp) enables you to cancel certain insurance products or services online, you may electronically communicate your request to cancel an insurance policy via the Suncorp Insurance Virtual Assistant;
29.5.2. To cancel an insurance contract via the Main Site you will need to follow the prompts within the Suncorp Insurance Virtual Assistant:
a) you need to request that your insurance policy be cancelled;
b) we will ask you to confirm the insurance policy that you wish to cancel, the reason for cancellation and the date of cancellation;
c) we will calculate and notify you if any unexpired portion of any paid premium is to be refunded to you and confirm the method of refund (being the last known payment details used or held on the insurance policy);
d) we will ask you to confirm the cancellation and you will be taken to have communicated your confirmation to cancel the selected insurance policy when the Electronic Instruction containing the confirmation from you enters and is recorded in the Relevant Database;
29.5.3. We may act on and process all completed Electronic Instructions transmitted or issued through the Main Site without further consent from or reference to you; and
29.5.4. We may treat an Electronic Instruction as authentic and is under no obligation to investigate the authenticity or authority of persons issuing or transmitting such Electronic Instructions, or to verify the accuracy and completeness of such Electronic Instructions.
29.5.5. We will send you confirmation of the cancellation of the insurance policy by your preferred method of communication, being either by mail or email.
29.5.6. We, at our discretion, may not be able to facilitate the cancellation of an insurance policy through the Main Site. In those circumstances you will not be able to proceed with the cancellation and you will be directed to contact us for further assistance.
29.5.7. Should the method of payment of any refund be incorrect or not up to date, you will need to contact us or change your payment card details through the Main Site or My Suncorp before cancelling the insurance policy.
30.1. All payments for any permitted insurance transactions via the Main Site must be paid in full by clear funds by the due date specified in the relevant confirmation.
30.2. All payments referred to in term 30.1 above are to be made by permitted payment cards (or permitted financial institution account debits, as relevant) at the time of the relevant transaction in relation to the applicable policy or service. In the case of a payment card transaction, you must therefore provide us with details of your permitted current and valid payment card, including:

30.3. If you make any purchases or payments via My Suncorp your payment will be processed in accordance with these Online Terms, the relevant Product Disclosure Statement and any other terms and conditions specific to the particular transaction. If you fail to pay your applicable premium or claim excess, whether via My Suncorp or through another payment method we offer, we may not provide you with the cover or policy benefit you have claimed for. Refer to the relevant Product Disclosure Statement and your Certificate of Insurance for more information about your premium and any applicable claim excess.
The following terms also apply to certain Suncorp branded Life Insurance & Income Protection products.
