6.4.1 Security Codes enable access to your financial products and services held with the Suncorp Group Entities and must not be disclosed to anyone, including a family member or friend.
6.4.2 You should protect yourself from unauthorised log ins. When choosing your Suncorp App Passcode it should be at least 7 characters and contain at least 1 number and 1 letter. You should NOT choose a Suncorp App Passcode which incorporates:

- a series of consecutive or the same numbers;
- the same number as any Mobile Device Passcode;
- an alphabetical code that is a recognisable part of your name; or
- your email address;

- write numbers that contain the same sequence of numbers as your Security Code;
- record it on any Mobile Device where it can easily be retrieved;
- keep a record of it in close proximity to where it can be obtained with the access method (for example next to your Mobile Device) unless you make a reasonable attempt to protect the security of the Security Code; or
- keep a written record of all Security Codes required to perform transactions on one or more articles at risk to be lost or stolen simultaneously, without making a reasonable attempt to protect the security of the Security Code(s).
These are only examples. There are other ways that you should not use to disguise Security Codes so as to make your Security Codes obvious to another person.

8.6 As a way of delivering relevant direct marketing content to you and curating your experience, the Suncorp App utilises information we have about you, for example your product holdings and what you’ve been looking at.

You can also access this page by selecting the ‘three dots’ on the top right corner of any personalised marketing content in the Suncorp App, and selecting the ‘edit’ option. Please note this will not mean that you will cease receiving marketing material within the Suncorp App, it just means any marketing you do receive will not use your information.

11.2 A binding insurance contract is conditional on the relevant Suncorp Group Entity being able to successfully charge against your nominated payment card and Suncorp Group receiving payment of all applicable renewal amounts due for the policy (or policies) being renewed (either in a single payment or where permitted in instalments).
11.3 Please be aware that when you use the Suncorp App to manage and change your insurance policy, any personal information such as your name, address or insured property details will not automatically update on the claims database. If you would like to update your personal information on your claim, please get in contact with the relevant Suncorp Group Entity directly.
11.4 You agree that any personal information, such as your name, address or vehicle which you save on the App or transmit to Suncorp Group as part of your claim lodgement will not automatically update on our record of your policy. For example, if you include your new address in your claim lodgement, Suncorp Group will not update your address on our record of your policy. Rather, the information you provide will only be used during the handling of your claim. If you would like to update your policy's details, please contact the relevant business directly.
11.5 Lodging a claim through the Suncorp App is currently only available for certain insurance products. Currently, the Suncorp App only supports claims lodgements for Home and Motor insurance products, with the exception of Strata, Third Party Damage and Compulsory Third Party (CTP). For more information on how to lodge a claim for products that are not supported, please call your product issuer or visit their website.
For the Home and Motor insurance products that are supported, you can lodge a claim through the Suncorp App. If you choose to lodge a claim through the App, as the information becomes available, notification will be provided to you in the App on where your claim is up to and any actions required from you. This includes whether your claim has been accepted, and whether you need to pay your policy excess. Should you require any immediate assistance with your claims, please call your product issuer.
11.6 To the extent permitted by law and subject to clause 11, communications about your policy and claims may be given electronically:
- by SMS, electronic mail to your nominated electronic address or (with your permission) push notification; or
- by making it available at the relevant Suncorp Group Entity’s website; or
- by any other means we agree with you.
Clauses 12 to 31 apply only in relation to banking functionalities. Please review these clauses carefully if you hold any banking products with us.
12. Making Transfers via the Pay Someone Feature
12.1 Suncorp App users are able to send money to other Suncorp accounts or accounts at other financial institutions or owned by third parties using the Pay Someone feature.
12.2 Pay Someone payments eligible to be submitted as an Osko payment via the New Payments Platform will generally be received by the payee in near real-time (refer to the Terms and Conditions for Suncorp Bank Accounts and for Continuing Credit Accounts for Osko eligibility requirements). All other Pay Someone payments will be sent to the destination the same day if submitted before 5.30pm (AEST) on a business day (Monday to Friday exclusive of recognised public holidays). Pay Someone payments (other than Osko payments) submitted after this time may not be sent until the following business day. Please allow 1-2 business days for a Pay Someone payment to be received by the recipient if it cannot be sent as an Osko payment through New Payments Platform.
12.3 Pay Someone payments to other Suncorp accounts, other than future dated or recurring payments, will be processed immediately.
12.4 Where a future dated or recurring Pay Someone payment is setup, the Pay Someone transfer will be debited from your account on the evening of the date you have requested the payment to be made.
12.5 If you ask us to send a payment to a BSB and account number we will direct the payment to the intended account using only the BSB and account number you provide. The account name you provide will not be used to check that the payment has been made to the correct account. Funds will be transferred to the BSB and account number you provide regardless of whether the account name you provide matches the account number.
12.6 If you ask us to send a payment to a PayID we will provide you with the corresponding PayID Name and ask you to confirm it. It is your responsibility to ensure you provide us with the correct PayID and ensure the PayID Name matches the person you intend to pay. If you are unsure whether the PayID Name is who you intend to pay, you should contact the intended recipient of your payment to confirm that the PayID and PayID Name are correct before proceeding with the payment.
12.7 It is your responsibility to ensure that the details provided by you, such as the BSB and account number or PayID, are correct or your Pay Someone payments may be unsuccessful or may be paid to an unintended account, resulting in the loss of your funds.
Mistaken Internet Payments are treated by us in accordance with clause 26 of these App Terms and the ePayments Code.
12.8 You must only use the PayID search function in the Pay Someone payment process for the purpose of making a genuine bona fide payment to another person. You must not use the PayID search function or data collected from the PayID search function for any improper or fraudulent purpose.
12.9 We may restrict or disable your use of the PayID search function from time to time in any manner we believe is appropriate or necessary to prevent the PayID search function from being used for a purpose, or in a way, which we believe could be fraudulent or improper.
12.10 When you make a Pay Someone payment to a PayID connected to a joint account, the other account holders may be able to see the messages and notifications associated with the payment.
12.11 For Pay Someone payments you must not enter any text, emojis or other characters in the payment description that are inappropriate, insulting, defamatory or damaging to the reputation of any person. We will not be liable to you or any other person for such payment descriptions.
12.12 Once you authorise transactions to be processed generally we will not be able to stop, withdraw, suspend or delete the transfer, change any details or recover the funds except where the payment is due to occur at a future date where you may be able to edit or amend the payment details prior to the payment occurring.
12.13 If a transfer cannot be processed by the receiving financial institution, the funds will be returned to your account. This may take approximately 3 days but can take longer depending on the other financial institution.
13. Paying Bills with BPAY®
13.1 If your instruction to make a bill payment using BPAY is made before 6:00p.m. Australian Eastern Standard Time on a Business Day, it will in most cases be treated as having been made on that same day or on the date in the future that you specify. Where your instructions are received after 6:00p.m. Australian Eastern Standard Time, in most cases the payment will be treated as having been made on the next Business Day or on the date in the future that you specify.
13.2 Where a future date or recurring BPAY is set up, the BPAY payment will be debited from your account on the evening of the date you have requested the payment to be made.
13.3 A payment may take longer to be credited to a biller under the BPAY Scheme if we receive your instruction on a day other than a Business Day or if another participant in the BPAY Scheme does not process a payment as soon as they receive it.
13.4 You need to allow sufficient time for processing of bill payments.
14. Using the Suncorp App
14.1 Suncorp App instructions requiring transfer of funds (including BPAY bill payments) may not be carried out if you do not have enough cleared funds in the relevant account. We will notify you on screen if this occurs while attempting to perform an immediate transaction.
14.2 When a requested Pay Someone future dated or recurring payment is unsuccessful, we will notify you in the Suncorp App and Internet Banking. Notification is deemed to have been received by you when it is received via one of these online platforms.
14.3 At any time we may restrict the types of accounts that can use the Suncorp App or we may change or restrict your use of or access to the Suncorp App by any Mobile Device. In addition, we may restrict the availability of some Suncorp App functions (eg BPAY, Pay Someone Transfers (including Osko payments)) to particular types of accounts or Mobile Device.
14.4 Information provided by the Suncorp App about your Account relates to transactions that we have processed and verified. Your Suncorp App transactions will be processed in the normal course of business or at the times we tell you.
14.5 We are not responsible for delays, errors, inaccuracies, or omissions due to failure in any Mobile Device, the Telephone Banking network, any telephone system, any other electronic system or ancillary equipment or any other circumstances beyond our control.
14.6 For bank account Transfers, Pay Someone and/or Edit Scheduled Payments, you must not enter text, and/or special characters in the description and/or reference fields that are inappropriate, insulting, defamatory or damaging to the reputation of any person. If you use such text or characters, you may not be able to proceed with the transaction. We will not be liable to you or any other person for such payment descriptions and/or references.
15. Withdrawal Limits
15.1 There are two types of withdrawal limits that apply when processing payments in Internet Banking and the Suncorp App:
1) Transaction Limit
When completing certain transactions in Internet Banking and the Suncorp App and the total value of these transactions exceeds $3,000 in any given day we will require you to input a Security Token Code. More information on Security Tokens is available in clause 16. We may vary the Transaction Limit and/or the types of transactions which require a Security Token Code.
The table below details the types of transactions that utilise this daily transaction limit:
Between your own Suncorp Accounts (excluding to a PayID)
Between your own Suncorp Accounts using a PayID*
From your Suncorp Account to another Suncorp Account using a BSB/Account or PayID*
To BSB/Account or PayID at another bank, also known as “Send Money” or “Pay Someone” transaction*
To BPAY - SPSL Master Trust & ATO
International Transfer (a token for every transaction is required)
Business Payments – Debit/Credit (a token for every transaction is required)
2) Daily Limit
Your daily limit is a security measure to limit the amount of money that can be transferred from any of your accounts in Internet Banking and the Suncorp App. Your default daily limit will be $5,000 unless we agree otherwise. Your daily limit will be shared across Internet Banking and the Suncorp App. We may vary the default daily limit at any time and provide at least 30 days’ notice of the change.
The table below details the types of transactions that utilise this daily limit:
Between your own Suncorp Accounts (excluding to a PayID)

15.2 The total of all transactions (including future dated and recurring payments) which utilise your Daily Limit across Internet Banking and the Suncorp App on any given day from all of your accounts must be less than your daily limit. If you attempt to perform a transaction that exceeds your Daily Limit, it may be rejected.
16. Security Token

a.your Daily Limit is over the default Daily Limit;
b.you wish to process over the Transaction Limit as detailed in clause 15.1
c. transaction is made from one of your Accounts which we reasonably believe may be fraudulent or suspicious; or
d. you have an account or personal limit (business customers only).

a. your daily limit is the default daily limit or less; and
b. you do not wish to process over the Transaction Limit as detailed in clause 15.1.

a. a Security Token is enabled and you are requested by us in the Suncorp App; and
b. when registering for the Suncorp App.
16.4 Where your Security Token is deactivated, and your daily limit is above the default daily limit, we may reduce your daily limit to the default daily limit until a new Security Token is activated and you request the limit to be increased.
16.5 When the Security Token expires or is deactivated you will be unable to process transactions which require a Security Token Code until a new Security Token is activated.
16.6 If you wish to deactivate your Security Token you can do so via the Suncorp Secured App. Alternatively, you can contact us on 13 11 55 and request to deregister from the Suncorp Secured App. You will be limited to transactions which do not require a Security Token Code (refer to clause 16.2 above).

- where we permit you to select or change a Security Code (and, immediately before your selection or change of the Security Code, we specifically instruct you not to select a numeric Security Code which represents your birth date or an alphabetical Security Code which is a recognisable part of your name and we warn you of the consequences of such a selection) not select such a numeric or alphabetical Security Code; or
- not act with extreme carelessness in failing to protect the security of all the Security Codes.

It does not apply in relation to Suncorp Insurance or Suncorp Life Insurance.
24. When You are Not Liable for Any Losses
24.1 An unauthorised transaction, that is a transaction you do not authorise, does not include any transaction carried out by you or by anyone performing a transaction with your knowledge and consent. You will not be liable for losses resulting from unauthorised transactions where it is clear that you have not contributed to the loss.
24.2 Where you do not authorise a transaction, you will not be responsible for losses which:
- are caused by fraudulent or negligent conduct of our staff or agents of ours or third parties involved in networking arrangements or merchants or their agents or employees;
- are losses relating to an Identifier, Device or Security Code which is forged, faulty, expired, or cancelled;
- arise from a transaction which required the use of any Device and / or Security Code that occurred before you received any Device and / or Security Code or reissued Device and / or Security Code;
- are caused by the same transaction being incorrectly debited more than once to the same Account;
- arise from unauthorised transactions performed after we have been informed that the Device has been misused, lost or stolen or the security of the Security Code has been breached;
- arise from unauthorised transactions that can be made using an Identifier without a Security Code or Device or can be made using a Device, or a Device and an Identifier, but does not require a Security Code, if you do not unreasonably delay reporting the loss or theft of the Device; and / or
are losses which occur while our processes are unavailable, provided that a report is made within a reasonable time of the process again becoming generally available
25. When You are Liable for Losses
25.1 You will be liable for losses resulting from transactions which are carried out by you or by another person with your knowledge and consent.
25.2 Where we can prove on the balance of probability that you have contributed to a loss through fraud, or breaching the Security Code security requirements in clause 6 and / or clause 24:
You are liable in full for the actual losses that occur before the loss, theft or misuse of a Device or breach of Security Code security is reported to us, but
You are not liable for the portion of losses:
- incurred on any one day that exceeds any applicable daily transaction limit,
- incurred in any period that exceeds any applicable periodic transaction limit,
- that exceeds the balance on the Account, including any pre-arranged credit, or
- incurred on any Account that we and you had not agreed could be accessed using the Device or Identifier and/or Security Code used to perform the transaction.
- more than one Security Code is required to perform a transaction, and
- we prove that you breached the Security Code security requirements in clause 6 and / or clause 22 for one or more of the required Security Codes, but not all of the required Security Codes,
you are liable as outlined above only if we prove on the balance of probability that the breach of the Security Code security requirements under clause 6 and / or clause 24 was more than 50% responsible for the losses, when assessed together with all the contributing causes.
25.3 You are liable for losses arising from unauthorised transactions that occur because you contributed to losses by leaving a Card in an ATM, as long as the ATM incorporates reasonable safety standards that mitigate the risk of a card being left in the ATM.
25.4 Where we can prove, on the balance of probability, that you contributed to losses resulting from an unauthorised transaction by unreasonably delaying reporting the misuse, loss or theft of a Device, or that the security of all Security Codes has been breached, you:
- are liable for the actual losses that occur between:
- when you became aware of the security compromise, or should reasonably have become aware in the case of a lost or stolen Device, and
- when the security compromise was reported to us, but
- are not liable for any portion of the losses:
- incurred on any one day that exceeds any applicable daily transaction limit,
- incurred in any period that exceeds any applicable periodic transaction limit,
- that exceeds the balance on the Account, including any pre-arranged credit, or
- incurred on any Account that we and you had not agreed could be accessed using the Device and/or Security Code used to perform the transaction.
25.5 Where a Security Code was required to perform the unauthorised transactions, and the other circumstances outlined in this clause above do not apply, you are liable for the least of:
- $150.00, or a lower figure determined by us;
- the balance of the Account or Accounts which we and you have agreed may be accessed using the Device and / or Security Code, including any prearranged credit; or
- the actual loss at the time the misuse, loss or theft of a Device or breach of the Security Code security is reported to us, excluding that portion of the losses incurred on any one day which exceeds any relevant daily transaction limit or any other periodic transaction limit.
25.6 We, or our external dispute resolution body, have a discretion to reduce your liability in the circumstances set out in the ePayments Code.
25.7 If you report an unauthorised transaction on a debit card Account:
- we must not hold you liable for losses under this clause for an amount greater than the liability of you if we exercised any rights we had under the rules of the card scheme at the time the report was made, against other parties to the scheme (for example, charge-back rights), and
- this clause does not require us to exercise any rights we may have under the rules of the card scheme. However, we cannot hold you liable under this clause for a greater amount than would apply if we had exercised those rights.
26. Mistaken Internet Payments
26.1 When the ePayments Code applies to a transaction made through an Internet Banking facility or when a transaction is made through the NPP as an Osko payment (excluding an Osko payment from one Suncorp Bank Account to another Suncorp Bank Account using a PayID) or Basic Single Credit Transfer, we will follow the rules of the ePayments Code in relation to Mistaken Internet Payments. Other ADIs who have subscribed to the ePayments Code are required to follow the same processes set out in this clause 26 in relation to Mistaken Internet Payments except that for an Osko payment another ADI may not have to cooperate with our external dispute resolution scheme in relation to a complaint you make to our scheme. These processes do not apply to transactions where the ‘Pay Someone' Suncorp App service used is a service designed primarily for use by a business and established primarily for business purposes.
This clause sets out how we will deal with Mistaken Internet Payments made by you and Mistaken Internet Payments received into your Account. You agree to us dealing with Mistaken Internet Payments in this way.

When a Mistaken Internet Payment Is Made Into Your Account
26.12 When a Sending ADI sends a request to us, as Receiving ADI, of a Mistaken Internet Payment having been made into your Account, we will within 5 Business Days acknowledge that request and advise the Sending ADI whether there are sufficient funds in your Account to cover the Mistaken Internet Payment.

If you fail to establish your entitlement within 10 Business Days, we will return the funds to the Sending ADI within 2 Business Days of the end of that period.
(c) Process where funds are available and report is made after 7 months
If a Mistaken Internet Payment is reported more than 7 months after the payment is made, there are sufficient funds in your Account and we are satisfied that a Mistaken Internet Payment has occurred, we will ask you if you agree to the return of the funds to the sender. If you consent to the return of the funds we must return the funds to the sender.
(d) Process where funds are not available in Your Account
Where we and the Sending ADI are satisfied that a Mistaken Internet Payment has occurred, but there are not sufficient credit funds available in your Account to the full value of the Mistaken Internet Payment, then we must use reasonable endeavours to retrieve the funds from you for return to the sender (for example, by facilitating repayment of the funds by you by instalments).

27. Managing your Visa Debit card
27.1 Temporarily lock card
This functionality is available for Visa Debit cards only, and is designed to be used if you have misplaced your card or wish to restrict unauthorised use. All card payments will be declined while a card is locked. If a card is temporarily locked, any recurring card payments such as, online subscriptions and direct debits will also be declined. If a locked card is inserted into an ATM, it will be retained. Your card will remain locked until you unlock it. Temporarily locking your card does not report your card as lost or stolen. If your card has been lost or stolen, or if there has been any unauthorised transactions, you must report this to Suncorp Bank as soon as possible in accordance with the terms and conditions that apply to your card. If you report a locked card as lost or stolen, or order a replacement card, the locked card will be cancelled.
27.2 Unlocking your card
If you temporarily lock your Visa Debit card using the Suncorp App, and have not reported your card lost or stolen to Suncorp Bank, you can unlock it anytime using the app. When you unlock your card, it will be active immediately.
27.3 Card Security preferences
The Suncorp App allows you to optionally control (turn off/on) the following transaction types for Visa Debit cards (Card Controls):
- Visa payWave payments – use this control to disable contactless payments. If it’s turned off, you’ll always need to insert or swipe your card and enter your PIN when making purchases. This includes contactless purchases using your mobile device where you have included the card in a mobile wallet service.
- Internet transactions (card not present transactions) – use this control to disable purchases via the internet or telephone from this card. If it’s turned off, any recurring transactions, such as online subscriptions, from this card will not be processed.
- Overseas in-store payments – use this control to disable overseas in-store payments. If it’s turned off, physical in-store card purchases outside Australia will be declined. This does not include online payments from international companies.
Things you should know about card controls:
- Only the card selected for the control will be impacted.
- Only the card owner can set controls.
- You can set more than one control for a card at any point in time.
- The controls relate to the selected card, not the account.
- The controls default position is ‘on’.
- The control applies only to the 'credit' option available with your card and not any ‘cheque’ or ‘savings’ option.
Circumstances where the card controls may not apply:
- Transactions that are made when a merchant's systems are offline.
- Quasi cash transactions which is when your Visa Debit card is used for the purchase of items e.g. money orders, traveller’s cheques foreign currency and online gambling.
- Suncorp Bank relies on the transaction information provided by the merchant. If the authorisation request we receive doesn't match the exact criteria used to define the control you have set, the transaction may not be declined.
What Suncorp Bank will do when you apply a control:
- We will make all reasonable efforts to decline a transaction when we receive an authorisation request for a transaction which matches one of the controls you have set.
Suspension and cancellation of the service:
- Suncorp Bank may cancel or suspend the service or your use of the service or any controls at any time and without prior notice e.g. there is a systems breakdown, or Suncorp Bank suspects a security breach such as suspect or fraudulent activity on your account.
- You can stop using the service at any time. If you ask Suncorp Bank to cancel the service we will set all the control indicators to the default setting for the control.
28. Your Card PIN Security Requirements
28.1 Your card PIN provides access to your Visa/Debit, EFTPOS and credit cards, and must not be disclosed to anyone, including a family member or friend.
To protect yourself from unauthorised use, you should NOT choose a PIN that includes:
- your date of birth;
- your driver’s license number;
- a series of consecutive or the same numbers; or
- the same number as any Mobile Device Passcode.
28.2 You can reset your card PIN at any time within the Suncorp App by selecting the Manage button in the Accounts section of the Banking Tab.
28.3 You can record your card PIN(s) to help you remember them, but they must be reasonably disguised. You should NOT:
- put any PIN on your card even if you disguise it;
- reverse the order of the PIN;
- say a disguised number is your PIN;
- disguise your PIN as a telephone number;
- replace your PIN with letters (e.g. A=1, B=2, C=3);
- write numbers that contain the same sequence of numbers as your PIN;
- record it on any Mobile Device where it can easily be retrieved;
- keep a record of it near the access method (for example next to your Mobile Device), unless you make a reasonable attempt to protect the security of the PIN; or
- keep a written record of all PIN(s) required to perform transactions on one or more items at risk of being simultaneously lost or stolen, without making a reasonable attempt to protect the security of the PIN(s).
These are only examples, and not a conclusive list of things you should avoid when disguising your card PIN(s).
28.4 If a card PIN is compromised, you are required to tell us immediately by telephoning our 24-hour hotline number on 1800 775 020.
28.5 Your liability for losses arising from an unauthorised transaction will be determined under the ePayments Code (refer to clauses 10 to 12 of these Terms and Conditions).
