3 Settlement means the full payment of a Customer Account Balance for a settlement period and if there are unsettled Customer Account Balances for prior settlement periods then those prior settlement periods must be settled as well.
4 In relation to Customer Betting Accounts that have been granted a Maximum Debit Limit the Customer Account Balance is payable by the Customer in the case of a debit balance or, by Palmerbet in the case of a credit balance, and is payable immediately upon notification to the Customer by Palmerbet of a Customer Account Balance.
5 Where a Customer has been granted a Maximum Debit Limit in accordance with paragraph D, the Customer may be refused bets by Palmerbet if their Customer Account Balance at any time exceeds their Maximum Debit Limit or if the effect of that bet would cause the Maximum Debit Limit to be exceeded. If Palmerbet, in its discretion, allows a Customer to place a bet even though the Maximum Debit Limit may be exceeded, the Customer shall settle its resultant Customer Account Balance when next notified by Palmerbet.
6 For the avoidance of doubt, it is the Customer's responsibility to monitor the balance of their Customer Betting Account and if, for whatever reason, the Customer Betting Account Balance exceeds its Maximum Debit Limit it is the Customer's responsibility to ensure that all amounts of the Debit Balance are settled in accordance with theseTerms.
7 Where a Customer has not been granted a Maximum Debit Limit the Customer may be refused wagers by Palmerbet if their Customer Account Balance at any time is in debit or if the effect of any bet would cause the Customer Betting Account going into debit.
1 Any instructions received by Palmerbet from the Customer for the placing of Bets shall constitute acceptance of the terms contained herein.
2 Upon acceptance of these terms by the Customer the terms are irrevocable and can only be rescinded in accordance with these terms or with the written consent of the manager of the Palmerbet.
3 None of the Palmerbet's agents or representatives are authorised to make any representations, statements, conditions or agreements not expressed by the manager of the Palmerbet in writing nor is the Palmerbet bound by any such unauthorised statements.
4 The Customer undertakes to give the Palmerbet not less than fourteen (14) days prior written notice of any proposed change in the Customer's name and/or any other change in the Customer's details (including but not limited to, changes in the Customer's address, facsimile number, or telephone number).
5 Palmerbet reserves the right to void any or all bets made by any individual or group of people acting together (or on behalf of another individual or group of people) in an attempt to gain financial benefit through the manipulation of TOTE based dividends or official starting prices. This can include persons, relatives, organisations, Palmerbet and its employees.

1. You warrant that you will notify Palmerbet promptly, if at any time after being granted a Credit Betting Facility or any increase to such a Facility, you have a material adverse change in your financial capacity compared to such capacity at the time of your most recent application for a Credit Betting Facility or any increase in such a Facility.

(d) a combination of any of the above.
C. Settlement and Default of Settling
1. You must settle in full the amount of credit owed by you against your Credit Betting Facility ("Amount Owed") at 11.59pm on the first Sunday from the activation of the Credit Betting Facility and every Sunday at 11:59pm thereafter (“Settlement Date”), unless otherwise agreed in writing by Palmerbet prior to any Settlement Date.
2. You may settle your Amount Owed by payments to your Palmerbet Account by credit card, BPAY, POLi, cheque or EFT and that:
(a) You agree that if you make a deposit to your Palmerbet Account by cheque and any such cheque is dishonoured, then Palmerbet may debit your Palmerbet Account a fee of up to $16.50 (including GST) per dishonoured cheque; and/or

(c) thereafter take all necessary steps to recover the Amount Owed, including listing the default with CRAs, and if necessary, instituting court proceedings to recover the amount of the default, costs involved in recovering any overdue amounts and interest.
5. You may be unable to place bets if, at any time, your Credit Betting Facility exceeds the credit limit of your Credit Betting Facility. If Palmerbet, in its discretion, allows you to place a bet even though the placement of such a bet may result in the credit limit of your Credit Betting Facility being exceeded, you will pay the amount owed in excess of the credit limit of your Credit Betting Facility (being part of the Amount Owed) at the Settlement Date, or immediately upon written notification by Palmerbet to do so, whichever occurs earlier in time.
