2.2 A Corporate Account will be provided to the Account Holder, at Worldline's sole discretion, and subject to compliance by the Account Holder, the Administrators and the Users with this Agreement.

Such modifications shall be deemed to be effective on the date they are made. It shall be the Account Holder's responsibility to regularly check the Website for any such modifications.
3. The Corporate Account
3.1 The Corporate Account allows the Account Holder to debit the purchase of Rail Products up to the Account Limit.
3.2 The debit balance on the Account will rise and fall within the pre-agreed Account Limit which will be agreed by Worldline at the time of opening the Corporate Account. If at the time of completing the Application for the Corporate Account the Account Holder has specifically requested the option of having its Account Limit assessed for increase by Worldline, from time to time, Worldline may unilaterally increase the Account Limit as the Account Holder's Corporate Account activity may suggest up to the maximum limit agreed by the Worldline at the time.
3.4 Worldline reserves the right to reduce the Account Limit, suspend the Corporate Account or terminate this Agreement at any time, at its sole discretion, where it believes that there may be a credit risk.
4.1 The Corporate Account may be used only by Users.
4.2 The Corporate Account is valid from the moment that a valid Log-in has been issued to the Applicant until the Agreement is terminated or the Corporate Account or the Service is suspended for whatever reason. If Worldline allows an Account Transaction after the Corporate Account has been closed or suspended by Worldline, this does not mean that Worldline has extended the validity of the Corporate Account.
4.3 It is important that the Corporate Account is not used fraudulently. The Account Holder and all Administrators must:
a) take proper care of the Log-ins that give access to the Corporate Account and do everything that is necessary to prevent it from being compromised and/or used wrongfully;
b) ensure that any record of the Account Holder's password is kept separate from the username and in a safe place; and
c) do not allow anybody to obtain knowledge of the Log-ins.
4.4 The Account Holder must notify Worldline immediately of any known or suspected improper or wrongful use of the Log-ins, the Corporate Account and/or of the Service in any way whatsoever.
4.5 When the Account Holder, the Administrators and/or Users undertake Account Transactions using the Corporate Account they do so at their own risk and Worldline shall not be liable for any penalty charges, fines, legal actions, actions by certificated bailiffs or other impositions resulting from the erroneous use of the Corporate Account.
4.6 Worldline shall not in any way be liable to the Account Holder if Worldline refuses to authorise any attempt to use the Corporate Account.

b) any tariffs, fees and/or charges levied by RDG and/or RSP;
c) any Worldline standard fees and other fees and charges payable from time to time (if any); and
d) any Bank fees or charges and any other charges associated with the Corporate Account; and
e) any VAT and/or any other taxes or levies chargeable, which are in accordance with relevant regulations or prescribed by law in force at the time of making the supply.

g) Next Day Delivery is charged at £10 per transaction.
All fees and charges may be subject to change at Worldline's sole discretion.
5.2 Worldline shall credit the Corporate Account monthly with:
a) any refunds made by Worldline in relation to any Account Transactions.
5.3 The Account Holder authorises Worldline (which authorisation may not be cancelled other than by Worldline's confirmation of the closure of the Corporate Account) to make the necessary entries to effect the debits and credits set out in Clauses 5.1 and 5.2 and at Worldline's sole discretion to reverse these entries when appropriate.
5.4 Worldline will issue the Account Holder with a statement of activity ("Statement") setting out the details of each Account Transaction (i.e. date, time, a description of the Rail Products purchased and value (excluding and including VAT) of each Account Transaction) that has taken place during the preceding month, the extent and nature of any fees or charges made by Worldline to the Corporate Account, any credits which have supplemented the balance of the Corporate Account, as well as the total debit balance on the Corporate Account. The Statement shall be issued via email to the Account Holder on the day following the last day of each calendar month. The Account Holder shall also be able to view Account Transactions through the Website portal.
5.5 It is important that the Account Holder regularly checks the Statements of activity to determine if they are correct. If the Account Holder disputes any item or transaction in a Statement it must write to Worldline within thirty (30) days of the date of the item or transaction, recording its dispute, so that Worldline can investigate the complaint properly and make the necessary enquiries. The relevant and detailed transaction records are only available for a limited time.
5.6 All sums owing to Worldline by the Account Holder as shown in the Statement referred to in 5.4 above shall be paid by means of the direct debit mandate included in the Application. The debit shall be enacted on the 12th of each month or on the next Business Day thereafter. All payments shall be made in Pounds Sterling.
5.7 If payments are not cleared by the Account Holder's bank under 5.6 above on the first presentation Worldline shall have the right to place a stop on the Corporate Account and the Corporate Account shall then be closed and the Agreement will terminate with immediate effect.
5.8 The Account Holder may not attach any conditions whatsoever to any payment made to Worldline. If the Account Holder attaches any conditions, Worldline shall have the right to accept the Account Holder's payment and exercise Worldline's rights under this Agreement as if the Account Holder has not attached any condition.
5.9 Regardless of the process of payment, all risk of payment will be borne by the Account Holder whether or not it is caused by Worldline's negligence or that of any of Worldline's employees.
5.10 Worldline shall have the right to interest on any amounts due under this Agreement in accordance with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 and Late Payment of Commercial Debts Regulations 2002.
