Wilson Parking Terms
1. Your contract with Wilson Parking
1.1 Introduction - Wilson Parking Australia 1992 Pty Ltd (we or Wilson Parking) offer a number of different ways for our customers (you or Customer) to book, manage, use and pay for car parking services we offer at car parks in Australia that are owned, branded or operated by us or our representative (Wilson Car Parks). We refer to our services and products as Wilson Products. These Terms apply as a contract between you and us, governing your use of any Wilson Product. The Terms also apply to successors and assigns of Wilson Parking, and our employees, agents and contractors (where applicable).
1.2 Application of Terms - these Terms apply to you whether you are the person (including a company or other legal entity) entering into the contract as described in clause 1.3, or a person such as a driver or a passenger using a Wilson Product under such a contract or with the authorisation of the person entering the contract (a Parker). You as the person entering into the contract must ensure that Parkers comply with these Terms. You remain liable in all cases for the performance of the contract, even if we also have rights against a Parker.
1.3 Formation of contract - these Terms take effect as a binding agreement between you and Wilson Parking, when:
(a) You sign an application form incorporating these Terms (and if the form requires a form of acceptance by us such as our representative’s signature or issuing a reference number, we have completed that acceptance process); or
(b) You use our website to purchase a Wilson Product (and if the website requires a form of acceptance by us such as issuing a reference number, we have completed that acceptance process); or

The other conditions may be explained in these Terms, set out on an application form, posted on our website, posted at a Wilson Car Park or included in a Parking App.
1.5 Authorisation - if you are a company or other corporate entity:
(a) these Terms apply to you if an authorised representative provides your company details as the Customer. When an individual does so, they are representing to us that they have authority to immediately bind you to these Terms. We will rely on that authority in providing Wilson Products to you, and you will be bound unless you prove to us that the individual did not have your authority; and
(b) you are responsible for all use of Wilson Products by your authorised Parkers. Where you have notified us of a particular Parker’s authorisation, and subsequently wish to withdraw the authorisation, for example in the event of termination of employment or other contract, or a change in employment terms, it is your responsibility to notify us, and to recover any Access Device or Parking App issued to the Parker. You remain liable for the Access Device, Parking App and use of Wilson Products by the Parker, until withdrawal is effected in all respects.

4.2 Payment methods - we will make payment methods available to you that may differ between Wilson Products. Payment methods include cash payment, credit or debit card payment from a pre-authorised account, direct debit, EFTPOS or credit card swipe or other authorisation, online credit card or other payment platforms. Payment methods using third parties may carry additional terms which you and we must comply with.
4.3 Authorisation - when you give us your credit card or debit account details, you are authorising us to charge your credit card or debit account with the amount of the applicable fees. You also authorise us to conduct ‘out-of-cycle’ direct debits on your credit card or debit account for the outstanding amount of any applicable fees. This will generally occur on or about the 15th day of a month, however we reserve the right to change this indicative timeframe at our sole discretion. You may not withdraw your authorisation until all applicable fees have been paid.
4.4 Periodic fees - where a monthly or other periodic fee applies to your Wilson Product:
(a) we may require you to pay a separate initial fee before you can start using the Wilson Product;

(e) we may review the periodic fee at any time and notify you of a different fee to take effect on at least 10 days’ prior notice. Use of a Wilson Product by you after that notice period constitutes acceptance of the varied fee. If you do not accept the varied fee, you may give notice to us prior to the expiry of the notice period terminating the Wilson Product with effect at the end of the current payment cycle. However, if a Monthly Subscription contract specifies agreed periodic review fees, those periodic fee reviews apply and there is no additional right to terminate in relation to the fee variation.
