1.2 The Company charges a fee for Cards. This fee applies to all Cards including replacement, additional or renewed cards. Card charges are non-refundable.
1.3 Cards used by Customers remain the property of the Network Supplier at all times. The Customer agrees to return any Cards to the Company when requested to do so by the Company.
USE OF THE CARD
2.1 The Customer is responsible at all times for the security of the Card and must ensure the card is used by authorised persons only to purchase Goods and/or Services appropriate to that Card from Sites operated by the appropriate Network Supplier. The Company does not control these Sites and accepts no responsibility whatsoever if any Goods and/or Services are not available for whatever reason from any Site. The Customer must comply with all requirements of the Site.
2.2 The customer is responsible and liable for all purchases made using the Card. Although there may be a name or vehicle registration on the face of the card, this is not a security measure and the Customer remains liable for purchases using the Card even in the event the Goods and/or Services purchased are for another vehicle.
2.3 The Cards should not be used after the expiry date. All Cards which have expired should be destroyed as soon as possible.
2.4 Customers should at all times ensure Cards which have not expired are not damaged or defaced.
2.5 If a Card is lost or stolen or the Customer believes that the security of a Card might be compromised, the Customer shall immediately notify the Company so that the Card can be cancelled. When notifying the Company, the Customer is required to quote the Card number. Although Customer notifications can be made over the phone, these must also be confirmed in writing to the Company.
2.6 The Customer must ensure that any person using any of their Cards must not interfere with any of the equipment at any Site. In the event there appears to be a defect the Customer must immediately report the problem to the relevant Network Supplier.

4.1 The price of fuel is dependent on the type of card used, the grade of fuel purchased and the Site at which the fuel is purchased.
4.2 The Company reserves the right to vary the price of fuel at any time as well the method by which the price of fuel is calculated.

If a Customer’s payment fails to clear then the Company reserves the right to charge an administration fee for each and every occurrence. If a Customer’s payment fails then the Company may place all the Customer’s card on stop and/or cancel all the Customer’s cards with immediate effect. If the Company chooses to cancel all the Customer’s cards then all amounts due to Oilfast will immediately become due and payable in full.
5.4 The Customer should therefore ensure there is a valid direct debit mandate in place at all times.
5.5 The Company will allocate the Customer with a credit limit based on the Customer’s requirements and the financial standing of the Customer.

The Customer must ensure they remain within this credit limit at all times. If the Company has concerns over the financial standing of the Customer and reduces the Customer’s credit limit to nil then all amounts owed by the Customer to the Company will immediately become due and payable in full.
5.6 The Customer must make all payments due to the Company without any deduction for set off, counterclaim, discount or otherwise.
