The deceased Account co-owner or their estate is not, however, released from liability for debts or overdrafts owing to us and incurred prior to the deceased Account co-owner's death. Once we receive evidence acceptable to us of the death, we will remove the deceased Account co-owner's name from the Account, subject to the payment of any debt owed by the deceased Account co-owner. Upon such removal, we will be fully discharged respecting the deceased Account co-owner and their estate's interest in the Account.

5.      ACCOUNT ACCESS

  1. We will determine how you may access your Account, including ways to identify you when you require our Services. We may issue you a Debit Card and require it to be used in certain channels to gain access to your Account. If we do, we will provide you with the rules governing its use in a separate agreement (the Debit Card Agreement). Your Debit Card is a separate Service from your Account. 

  2. Accounts are for your personal banking needs only. If an Account is used for business purposes, we can close the Account (or close the Account and open a business account for you with business banking service fees). 

  3. We may permit you to access an Account and conduct transactions through other channels, such as online or by telephone, subject to the terms of the relevant agreements governing such access, including the Direct Services Agreement, Debit Card Agreement and DUCA Online Agreement. 

  4. Access to an Account and transactions may be subject to daily limits or other limits set by us. We will tell you the Account limits from time to time. 

  5. You acknowledge that nothing in this Agreement or any other agreement between you and us, will prevent us from restricting access to an Account, refusing to release funds in an Account if we are required to do so or if, in our opinion, there is unusual, improper or suspicious activity in an Account, or closing an Account for any reason, in our complete discretion 

  6. You agree to take all reasonable precautions to maintain the security and integrity of your Account and to prevent fraudulent transactions in your Account. You agree to advise us of any suspicious circumstances that you are aware of surrounding an item for deposit or other transaction in your Account at the time of your instruction to us.

You acknowledge that the Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act (Canada)and Regulations, as they may be amended from time to time, apply to the operation of your Accounts and that we will, from time to time, adopt policies and procedures to address the reporting, client identification and recordkeeping requirements of this legislation. You agree to abide by and comply with all such policies and procedures, as applicable, and recognize that such policies and procedures may be more rigorous than the statutory or regulatory requirements. You agree that the Account is not to be used by, or on behalf of, a third party or parties without our prior written permission.



7.      APPOINTING AN ATTORNEY 
You may appoint one or more attorneys to act for you in respect of an Account. However, we may refuse to accept the appointment in our sole discretion if it is not satisfactory to us, or we may refuse to honour any Account transaction made by an attorney (or by any committee, property guardian or similar representative appointed by a court to act for you in respect of an Account). If an Account is a joint Account, we may also refuse to honour any Account transaction made by an Attorney (or by any committee, property guardian or similar representative appointed by a court to act for you in respect of an Account) unless their appointment in respect of the joint Account has been agreed upon (in writing) by all Account owners. An Attorney will have access to the previous Account history and transaction details for the Account, and you agree to this access being provided. 


8.      STATEMENTS

  1. We will provide you with a monthly statement that sets out all transactions affecting your Account. We will not be liable to you for any errors, irregularities, omissions or unauthorized, forged and/or fraudulently obtained, executed or communicated transactions, charges or payment orders debited to your Account unless you notify us of the same within 30 days of when you received or should normally have received the statement evidencing the same. If you do not notify us of any such errors, irregularities or omissions prior to the expiry of this time limit, you agree that, notwithstanding any negligence on our part, the statement is complete, correct and binding on you and we will be released from all claims by you in respect of the statement, including any transaction and balance errors. 

  2. Account statements will be provided by ordinary mail unless you request otherwise. If we mail you a statement, we will mail your Account statements to your last known address and you will be deemed to have received it three days after we mail it. We may, in our discretion, change the frequency or method of distribution of Account statements. You acknowledge that you are primarily responsible for monitoring your Account and making sure that all the transactions through it are proper, accurate, and have been authorized by you. You acknowledge that it is your responsibility to advise us promptly if your account statement has not been provided or made available to you within five days of the date of deemed delivery. Absent any complaint received within such five-day period, delivery of you account statement shall be conclusively deemed to have occurred as provided above. 

  3. If you have access to DUCA OnLine, you may request us to stop mailing Account statements to you. You acknowledge that thereafter it is solely your responsibility to regularly and carefully verify, via DUCA OnLine that there are no errors, omissions or irregularities with respect to entries posted to your Account. In any event, you agree that if you do not notify us that there is an error, omission or irregularity with respect to any transaction posted to your Account, prior to the expiry of 30 days after the posting date of the transaction, you agree that, notwithstanding any negligence on our part, our electronic records are complete, correct and binding on you and we will be released from all claims by you in respect of our electronic records, including any transaction and balance errors. 

  4. You agree that only one statement will be sent by ordinary mail for each joint Account to the address on record. Delivery of paper Account statements or notifications to the last address designated to receive paper statements is considered a delivery to each co-owner. Any co-owner who receives the paper statements for the Account is charged with the duty of making copies available to the other co-owners. 

  5. Joint Account statements may be viewed on DUCA OnLine by all co-owners who have access to DUCA OnLine. If a co-owner of a joint Account requests us to stop mailing Account statements, the requesting co-owner is charged with the duty of delivering copies of any Account Statements and Notifications to the co-owner(s) who do not have access to Online Banking. 

    1. notwithstanding that an Instrument may be provisionally posted to your Account, it is not considered processed until it has been honoured and irrevocably collected by us and the time for return by any process of law has expired. The credit represented by an Instrument that is not honoured and collected may be reversed from an Account notwithstanding any provisional posting. The statement of account for an Account will be modified accordingly; and 

    2. notwithstanding that a deposit or other credit may be provisionally posted to an Account, it is not considered processed until it has been verified and accepted by us. A deposit or other credit that is not verified and accepted may be reversed from an Account notwithstanding any provisional posting. The statement of account for the Account will be modified accordingly.

You must give exact details of the amount of the item, cheque number, if applicable, date of item, payee, and the full account number on which it is drawn in order for the item to be stopped.
