Protecting you

In the unlikely event that there are payments from your current or savings accounts that you didn't authorise, we'll refund the amount of the unauthorised transaction and any resulting charges and interest in most circumstances, please see your account terms and conditions for more details.

You must take all reasonable precautions to keep your security details safe, like making sure that no one can see them when you log on and not writing them down in a way that can be easily understood by someone else. You must not generally give your security details to anyone else but you can give them to a Third Party Service Provider (TPP) if it is necessary to allow them to provide services to you. If you do give your security details to a TPP, we’ll assume it’s you authorising us to give access to information about your account and you will be responsible for any payments made as a result. You will also be responsible for any losses if you act fraudulently or let anyone else (other than an authorised TPP) log on using your details.
