    • Don’t let anyone else have access to your account or Security Details, or transact using them, even if they share a joint account with you through our Online Banking services.
    • Tell us, as soon as you can if you think your Security Details have been lost, stolen, damaged or are being misused; or think someone may be accessing your accounts without your authority, or has discovered your Security Details.
    • Carry out regular virus checks on your devices.

    If you've been grossly negligent, we will not refund any money taken from your account before you have told us your Security Details have been lost, stolen or could be misused.

    We won't give you a refund if you have acted fraudulently.
