Please read these Terms carefully. These Terms are a legal agreement and govern all Transactions made with the Card through a Mobile Wallet.
Accepting These Terms
By adding or attempting to add the Card to a Mobile Wallet or using or keeping the Card in a Mobile Wallet, you accept and agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, you must not add, attempt to add, use, or keep
the Card in a Mobile Wallet.
Other Agreements Continue to Apply
The Card Agreement describes the terms and conditions that apply when you use a Card. Nothing in these Terms changes your responsibilities under the Card Agreement. All references to “Card” in the Card Agreement include the digital card contained in the Mobile Wallet. When your Card is enrolled in a Mobile Wallet, your Device will be deemed a Card for the purposes of the Card Agreement, as the context requires. The terms of the Card Agreement, the EQ Bank Personal Account Agreement, and other agreements that apply to the Card and linked EQ Bank Personal Account, including any amendments (collectively, the “Agreements”) supplement these Terms. The Agreements continue to apply to
the Card, including when you add the Card to the Mobile Wallet or use it in the Mobile Wallet.
Provider or Third Parties conflict with these Terms or the Card Agreement, these Terms or the Card Agreement, as applicable, will govern.
Adding the Card to the Mobile Wallet
To add a Card to the Mobile Wallet, you must follow any procedures adopted by the Wallet Provider and EQ Bank. Only the individual whose name is on the Card should add the Card to a Mobile Wallet. You may only add your Card to the Mobile Wallet
on your own Device. You will have to activate the Card before you can add it to the Mobile Wallet. You are responsible for the completeness and accuracy of any information you enter into a Mobile Wallet.
Using the Card in the Mobile Wallet
The Mobile Wallet allows you make purchases using a Card that has been added to the Mobile Wallet wherever the Mobile Wallet is accepted, as set out in these Terms. When you use your Card through the Mobile Wallet to transact with a merchant,
the legal effect is the same as if you used the physical Card. You may not make an ATM withdrawal using your Card through the Mobile Wallet. You are financially responsible for all Transactions made using the Card in the Mobile Wallet
in accordance with the Card Agreement. Mobile Wallet Transactions will be added to your Statements.
The Mobile Wallet may not be accepted everywhere your Card is accepted and may not be accepted outside of Canada. Using a Card in the Mobile Wallet is subject to Card activation and any applicable Card or Mobile Wallet limits, which are subject
to change. Mastercard®, EQ Bank or merchants may, in their discretion, establish a maximum dollar limit for a single Transaction that may be completed using a Mobile Wallet, and different dollar limits may apply. As a result, you may
not be able to use the Mobile Wallet to complete a Transaction, even if your Card and other EQ Bank accounts are in good standing.
We can block you from adding a Card to the Mobile Wallet, or suspend or cancel your ability to use a Card in the Mobile Wallet at any time and for any reason determined by us in our sole discretion, without notice or liability to you, including
but not limited to if we suspect fraud related to the Card or the Mobile Wallet, if you are not in good standing with EQ Bank, if we have restricted your Card or other EQ Bank accounts, if you have a negative balance on your Card, if we
are directed to do so by the Wallet Provider, Mastercard, or a regulator, and where required by applicable law. In certain circumstances your Card may be suspended or removed from a Mobile Wallet by the Wallet Provider.
Removing the Card from the Mobile Wallet
You may remove your Card from the Mobile Wallet by following the Wallet Provider’s procedures for removal.
You agree that you will protect and keep confidential all information required for you to access or make purchases with your Card, Device, and Mobile Wallet, including your Device information, passwords, passcodes, and verification questions,
if applicable, and any other information used to authenticate you (the “Mobile Wallet Credentials”). After enrolling in a Mobile Wallet, you must secure your Device with the same care you would your Card in
order to avoid unauthorized use. You are responsible for keeping your Mobile Wallet Credentials private and secure.
If you share your Mobile Wallet Credentials or Device with others in any way (such as by allowing others to set up fingerprint or facial recognition on your Device or sharing the Device passcode), they may be able to access your Device and
the Mobile Wallet to make purchases with your Card, obtain your personal information, or view Transactions on your Device. You are prohibited from using any Mobile Wallet on a Device that you know or have reason to believe has had its
security or integrity compromised. You may be solely liable for any losses, damages and expenses incurred as a result of your use of the Mobile Wallet on a compromised Device. If your physical Card is lost or stolen, you may not use the
Card in the Mobile Wallet.
You must contact EQ Bank immediately by calling 1-844-437-2265 (1-416-551-3449 outside of North America) if you suspect fraud or unauthorized use of your Card or Mobile Wallet. You may also need to notify your Wallet Provider. We will investigate
and where appropriate resolve any potential fraudulent purchase or error on your Card as set out in the Card Agreement. We will not be liable for any losses you incur except as specifically described in the Card Agreement or as otherwise
provided by law.
You understand that by adding the Card to a Mobile Wallet, your Device will act as if it were your Card in certain instances. If you suspect your Device is lost or stolen, lock your Card through EQ Bank’s mobile banking app, online banking,
or by calling 1-844-437-2265 (1-416-551-3449 outside of North America). You must contact EQ Bank immediately by calling 1-844-437-2265 (1-416-551-3449 outside of North America) if your Device is lost or stolen. You may also need to notify
your Wallet Provider. You must also contact EQ Bank immediately if you believe your Mobile Wallet Credentials have been lost, compromised or stolen, and you should change your Mobile Wallet Credentials immediately to avoid any unauthorized
use of your Card or your personal information.
Before you sell, give away, or dispose of your Device, you must remove the Card from the Mobile Wallet by following the Wallet Provider’s procedures for removal. If you do not follow these procedures for removal of the Card, your Card
may be available to the person who obtains your Device, and you will be responsible for any Transactions that are completed.
Security of the Mobile Wallet
We are not responsible for the security or performance of the Mobile Wallet. We are not responsible if there is a security breach affecting any information stored in the Mobile Wallet or sent from the Mobile Wallet. The Wallet Provider is
responsible for the security of information that you provide to it or that is stored in the Mobile Wallet.
We do not charge any fees for adding a Card to the Mobile Wallet. The Card Agreement contains details regarding any fees for the Card. The Wallet Provider or Third Parties may charge you service fees when you use your Device or the Mobile
Wallet, such as wireless carrier data or usage fees. Fees imposed by the Wallet Provider or Third Parties may form part of the Transaction amount that is charged to your Card when using the Mobile Wallet and the nature and amount of those
fees may be unknown to us. Fees from the Wallet Provider or Third Parties may be charged to your Card when processing a Transaction conducted using the Mobile Wallet. You agree that you are responsible for any fees that are imposed by
the Wallet Provider or Third Parties for the use of your Device or Mobile Wallet. You agree that EQ Bank is not responsible for identifying, disclosing or verifying fees imposed by Wallet Providers or Third Parties.
You understand and agree that you may receive notifications on your Device relating to the Card and the Mobile Wallet, such as when you complete Transactions using your Card (each a “Notification”). Depending on
your Device settings, Notifications may be visible on your Device without any requirement to enter a password or unlock the Device. You may turn off Notifications by adjusting the settings on your Device.
We are not responsible for any failure to provide you with information, including Notifications, through the Mobile Wallet at any time or for any reason. You should not rely on Notifications to confirm the final amount of any Transaction as
the amounts could be different than the final purchase price. You should review your Transaction records and Statements for errors as set out in the Card Agreement.

When changes are made, notice of the change will be sent to you at the email address in your profile with us, posted on the Message Centre, or posted on the Website.
