1 THIS AGREEMENT
This PAD Agreement, Pre-Authorized Debit Request Authority, Client Agreement constitute the entire pre-authorized debit agreement between HiFX Canada Inc. dba Xe . and you (the Customer). By agreeing to the Pre-Authorized Debit Request Authority you are authorizing HiFX Canada Inc. dba Xe. to arrange for funds to be debited from your Account for the purpose of settling your foreign currency transactions in accordance with the terms of the Pre-authorized Debit Request Authority, Client Agreement and this PAD Agreement.
2 CLIENT AGREEMENT
You acknowledge that we will notify your financial institution as to the amount and timing of payments debited from the Account in accordance with instructions you have provided to us in relation to foreign currency transactions entered into pursuant to the Client Agreement. The first debit under this PAD Agreement will occur on the debit day of the first foreign exchange transaction entered into with us following acceptance of this Pre-Authorized Debit Request Authority. This PAD Agreement provides ongoing authorization for Xe to debit your bank account to settle any future foreign exchange contracts where you have instructed us to debit your bank account.
3 BUSINESS DAY
If the Debit Day falls on a day that is not a Business Day, we may direct your financial institution to debit your account on the following Business Day; you therefore waive your right to receive advance notification of the Debit Payment prior to the Debit Day.
4 VARIATION BY US
We may vary any details of this PAD Agreement at any time by giving you at least 14 days written notice.
5 VARIATION BY YOU
If you wish to stop, defer or vary a particular Debit Payment, you must notify us in writing at least 3 Business Days before the relevant Debit Day by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by post at the following address: 1200 – 80 Richmond Street West, Toronto Ontario M5H 2A4 Canada. This notice should be given to us in the first instance, rather than to your financial institution. For the avoidance of doubt, a variation of the Debit Payment arrangement will not alter your obligations under the Client Agreement.
6 CANCELLATION BY YOU

You acknowledge that, in order to cancel this authorization, you must provide written notice of cancellation to us.

You further acknowledge that cancellation of this PAD Agreement does not terminate or in any way affect any obligations you may have under the Client Agreement. In accordance with the Client Agreement, once a transaction has become legally binding, you may not cancel the transaction under any circumstances. In the event that this PAD Agreement is cancelled, HiFX Canada Inc. dba Xe . may close out the transaction subject to the Debit Payment and you will be liable to pay to us the amount of the total loss incurred by us, together with any expenses, premiums, commissions, or other fees incurred by us as a result of any relevant foreign currency transaction being cancelled.
7 YOUR OBLIGATIONS
Direct debiting may not be available on all accounts. You must ensure that your Account can be debited and that any arrangements you need to make with your financial institution to enable direct debiting from the Account have been made. You must ensure that there are always sufficient clear funds available in the Account to allow a Debit Payment to be made. You must advise us immediately if the Account is transferred or closed. You hereby warrant and guarantee that all persons whose signatures are required on the Account identified have duly authorized or executed the Pre-Authorization Debit Request Authority.
8 INSUFFICIENT FUNDS
If, at any time, there are insufficient clear funds in the Account to meet a Debit Payment, you must make immediate arrangements for the Debit Payment to be made by another method or arrange for sufficient clear funds to be in your Account by an agreed time so that we can process the Debit Payment and the relevant foreign currency transaction may proceed. If a Debit Payment is returned unpaid by your financial institution you will be liable for any dishonor fees charged by that financial institution. We will invoice you for those fees or include them in your next Debit Payment. You acknowledge that we may in our discretion decide to close out any foreign currency transaction in accordance with the Client Agreement and to invoice you for the resultant loss, together with any fees or charges incurred by us.
You should check your account statement regularly. If you believe that there has been an error in debiting your Account, you should contact us immediately at (US, Canada) 1-844-932-6640 or by email at email@example.com. We will investigate the matter and advise you accordingly. If we cannot resolve the matter to your satisfaction, you can still refer it to your financial institution which will obtain details from you of the disputed transaction and may lodge a claim on your behalf.
