Direct Debit Key Points To Consider:

  1. A small service fee of $2 is charged by Stipe with each Direct Debit Transaction. This fee is payable by you and has been factored in to the final Direct Debit instalment price.

  2. A statement will be provided to you in either print format or email each month outlining which appointments you have attended. You can then take this statement to your Health Fund Provider (if applicable) to make a claim.

  3. The ‘standard’ fee price for ‘Report Of Findings’ ‘regular adjustment’ ‘progress exams’ ‘Strength and Conditioning appointments’ and ‘Results appointments’ will be charged and shown on your statement until the total agreed amount of your program has been reached. Once the agreed amount has been reached the fee price will be billed at $0.00 for any appointment you attend for the remainder of the program.

  4. You agree to have sufficient funds within your nominated account 3 days prior to the nominated Direct Debit transaction. If there is not sufficient funds, you agree that any fees or charges by your financial institution (eg. your bank) will be incurred by you and not Alignment or Stripe.

  5. You have the right to terminate the proposed care plan at any time.

  6. If you wish to terminate the proposed care plan for any reason before the agreed ‘termination date’ you will be charged for the remainder of the week / fortnight / 3 weekly or monthly direct debit.

I/We acknowledge that Stripe is acting as a Direct Debit Agent for the Alignment and that Stripe does not provide any goods or services (other than the direct debit collection services to me/us for Alignment pursuant to the Direct Debit Request and this DDR Service Agreement) and has no express or implied liability in regards to the goods and services provided by Alignment or the terms and conditions of any agreement that I/we have with Alignment.

I/We acknowledge that the debit amount will be debited from my/our account according to my/our agreement with Alignment and the terms and conditions of the Direct Debit Request (and specifically the Debit Arrangement and the Fees/Charges detailed in the Direct Debit Request) and this DDR Service Agreement.

I/We acknowledge that is my/our responsibility to ensure that there are sufficient cleared funds in the nominated account by the due date to enable the direct debit to be honoured on the debit date. Direct debits normally occur overnight, however transactions can take up to three (3) business days depending on the financial institution. Accordingly, I/we acknowledge and agree that sufficient funds will remain in the nominated account until the direct debit amount has been debited from the account and that if there are insufficient funds available, I/we agree that Stripe or Alignment will not be held responsible for any fees and charges that may be charged by either my/our or its financial institution.

I/We acknowledge that there may be a delay in processing the debit if:-(1) there is a public or bank holiday on the day of the debit, or any day after the debit date; (2) a payment request is received by Stripe on a day that is not a banking business day in Sydney or any other state in Australia (3) a payment request is received after normal Stripe cut off times. (please visit Stripe T&C for further information) Any payments that fall due on any of the above will be processed on the next business day.

I/We acknowledge that Stripe is to provide at least 14 days notice if it proposes to vary any of the terms and conditions of the Direct Debit Request or this DDR Service Agreement including varying any of the terms of the debit arrangements between us.

I/We acknowledge that I/we will contact Alignment if I/we wish to alter or defer any of the debit arrangements.

I/We acknowledge that any request by me/us to stop or cancel the debit arrangements will be directed to Alignment.

I/We acknowledge that any disputed debit payments will be directed to Alignment and/or Stripe. If no resolution is forthcoming, I/we agree to contact my/our financial institution.
