22. Fingerprint unlock

The fingerprint unlock service (the ?Service?) is available in the UNI mobile app. By signing up for the Service, you accept the following terms of use. These terms are in addition to the AccèsD Internet terms of use and are deemed to be an integral part thereof. In the terms below, ?you? means ?the user? within the meaning of the AccèsD Internet terms of use.

Signing up for the service is optional. The Service uses fingerprint recognition functionality already in your device?s operating system. The functionality and operating system, including their security features, are developed and supported by third parties and are their exclusive responsibility. Their use, including adding your fingerprint to your device, is subject to other terms of use that are not established by the Caisse, such as manufacturer?s terms and conditions, which you must have accepted before you can sign up for the Service. At no time do the Caisse have access to your fingerprint data.

All fingerprints recorded in your device by means of the fingerprint recognition functionality allow you to identify and authenticate yourself to gain access to the AccèsD Internet service. It is both your access code/user code and password. You must therefore ensure that only your fingerprints are recorded in the device on which you are activating the Service. You may sign up for the Service on only one device. If you wish to add a device to the Service, you must sign up again on the other device and the other device must be eligible for the Service, as determined by the Caisse.

For security reasons, if you add a new fingerprint to your device after having signed up for the Service, the Service will automatically be deactivated on the device and you will have to sign up for the Service again to be able to use it.

23. Apple Pay and Google Pay

Debit card
Conditions for using your debit card with this application

To use your debit card (the ?Card?) with this application (the "Application"), you must agree to the following:

I understand that all transactions carried out through the Application using my Card are subject to the conditions governing the use of the Card.

The Application allows me to carry out transactions with the Card, up to a maximum amount determined by the financial institution that issued the Card, at participating merchants. To complete a transaction at the merchant using the Application, the card does not need to be inserted or swiped in a payment terminal or other device designed for that purpose, and I do not need to enter my PIN. I can simply wave the mobile device containing the Application with the Card programmed into it near the terminal or other device designed for that purpose. I can also use the Application to complete transactions remotely without being in the presence of the merchant and without entering my PIN. I understand that every transaction carried out using my Card through the Application is considered to be an authorized use of my Card and I am subject to the same liability as if I had entered the PIN for my Card in a payment terminal or any other accessible device.

To prevent any unauthorized use of my Card, I agree to take all necessary precautions to keep my mobile device safe, as well as any passwords or information that would allow someone to use the Application to make a transaction with my Card. If such precautions are not taken, I understand that it will be presumed that I have contributed to the unauthorized use of my Card and assume all liability therefor.

If you do not want anyone else to be able to view or see the content of certain push notifications, you must configure your device accordingly (e.g., add a password or configure your device so that push notifications are not displayed when it is locked). UNI does not have any control over your device's security settings.

The Service Terms of Use represent the entire agreement between the Caisse and you with regard to use of the Service and they supersede any prior agreement between you and Caisse concerning use of the Service. You may also be subject to additional Terms of Use specific to certain services, third party content and third party software that will be disclosed to you once you access such services, content or software. The failure by the Caisse to exercise any rights conferred upon it by virtue of the Terms of Use in no way constitutes a waiver of such rights. Should any provision of these Terms of Use be judged to be invalid by the decision of a court, all other provisions will remain in effect and continue to apply. The section titles in the Terms of Use are provided for information purposes only and have no legal effect.

Finally, the use of some Caisse services may require compliance with additional or specific rules, conditions, provisions or guidelines that will be set forth in a separate agreement. Such rules and guidelines will be considered an integral part of these Terms of Use. In the event of any disagreement or confusion between the Terms of Use and the separate agreement, the latter will prevail.
