You will be liable for all unauthorized withdrawals and purchases, whether they are effected as a result of the unauthorized use of the Card, your personal or account information, the Card PIN and/or your signature, prior to the Bank's receipt of your notification of loss or theft through the CitiPhone at 995 9999 (Metro Manila) or 234 9999 (Cebu).
The Card shall remain the property of the Bank. You agree that the Bank may, at its sole discretion, suspend, block, terminate or cancel the Card at any time for any reason, with or without need of prior notice to you.

The Card shall be for your exclusive use and is not transferable.

You shall personally encode your Debit Card Personal Identification Number (PIN) at the Citibank branch where you maintain your Accounts. The Bank may exercise at its discretion the option to deliver your Card PIN through mail. Your Card PIN is strictly confidential. For your own protection, you agree never to disclose your Card PIN to anyone. You shall in all circumstances accept full responsibility for all transactions processed thru the use of the Card and the Card PIN whether or not the transactions were made with your knowledge or with your authority.

Such limits shall be subject to change from time to time. In the event the system is off-line, the Bank may further reduce the limit for withdrawals made outside the Philippines.

- The collection, storage, communication and processing of all pertinent data, such as your Account balance, by any means necessary to maintain appropriate transaction and Account records;
- The release and transmission of all these necessary data to participants and processors in the Citishare network and/or by the third party banks, ATM and Mastercard networks worldwide;

Available Funds in the Account
You agree never to use, or attempt to use, your Card for any transaction, such as withdrawal or transfer of funds or purchase, unless you have sufficient funds in your Account.
You agree to receive an SMS notification every time you use your Citibank Debit Mastercard to pay for purchases in a Mastercard POS terminal. You agree to act on such SMS notification as required or needed immediately upon receipt thereof.

If the Bank's investigation results show that the transaction is invalid, the Bank will credit back to your Account the amount equivalent to the disputed transaction. No interest will be paid during the pendency of the dispute. In addition, interest where applicable, will resume only once the amount is credited back to the account. If the transaction is valid, the bank will not credit back any amount to your account.
For international ATM withdrawals and POS retail purchases, you authorize the Bank to debit from your Account the equivalent amount of any withdrawal, transfer or purchase you make in currencies other than the currency of your Account. The Bank shall base the equivalent amount on the exchange rates determined by the Global Management at Citibank, N.A., New York, U.S.A. (Citi NY). Citi NY bases its rates on a certain spread above the prevailing interbank rates at 5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. More specifically, withdrawals against US Dollar accounts in currencies other than US Dollar (third currency) will be converted into US Dollars based on the rate set by Citi NY. For withdrawals from or purchases using Peso accounts, the third currency amount is first converted to US Dollar in the manner provided above, and the US Dollar amount is converted to its Peso equivalent based on the exchange rate set locally by the Citibank Treasury Group.
The transaction records generated, kept and maintained by the Bank shall be conclusive and you agree to accept and be bound by these transaction records.
In case of joint accounts, all the Account holders agree that all transactions done thru the Card will be binding on each of the Account holders, jointly and severally.
