• Terms and conditions for Regular Export Collection

    1 This collection is subject to the Uniform Rules for Collections, International Chamber of
    Commerce Publication number 522 or any successor publication in force from time to time.

    2 The choice of collecting bank rests with Lloyds Bank plc, unless specific
    instructions are given on this form to present through a named bank direct, without
    the intervention of an intermediary.

    3 Unless otherwise instructed, unaccepted term bills will be sent for acceptance and,
    following acceptance, will be retained by the collecting bank, pending presentation
    for payment at maturity. Airmail is used wherever possible unless otherwise
    instructed. Duplicate documents are also sent by airmail.

    4 Unless expressly provided to the contrary herein in Clause 5, no person other than
    you and Lloyds Bank plc shall have rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third
    Parties) Act 1999 to enforce or to enjoy the benefit of these terms and conditions.

    5 If you are a customer of:
    • Lloyds Bank Offshore Limited
    • Lloyds Bank Private Banking Limited
    • Bank of Scotland plc

    5.1 you acknowledge and agree that:

    5.1.1 each of the above banks has appointed Lloyds Bank plc as its agent for
    the purpose of international banking transactions carried out at the request
    of its customers. Accordingly, if you are a customer of one of these banks,
    although Lloyds Bank plc will effect the transaction contemplated in
    these terms and conditions in its own name, you acknowledge and agree
    that it will do so as agent for your bank and that bank will indemnify
    Lloyds Bank plc in respect of the transaction.

    5.1.2 these terms and conditions are therefore to be read as being between you
    and your bank and that all references in these terms and conditions to the
    “Bank”, “us”, “we”, “Lloyds Bank” and “Lloyds Bank plc” shall be construed
    accordingly to give effect to this clause.

    5.1.3 Lloyds Bank plc may require the disclosure by Lloyds Bank Offshore Limited,
    Lloyds Bank Private Banking Limited or Bank of Scotland plc (as the case may be)
    of information relating to its accounts (including information stored on its
    database), and that therefore Lloyds Bank Offshore
    Limited, Lloyds Bank Private Banking Limited or Bank of Scotland plc (as
    applicable) is authorised to disclose all such information as may be requested
    by Lloyds Bank plc for the purpose of carrying out international banking
    transactions.

    5.2 in any case where you have given Lloyds Bank Offshore
    Limited, Lloyds Bank Private Banking Limited or Bank of Scotland plc information about
    individuals you represent and confirm that those individuals have appointed you
    to act for them and consent to the processing of personal data for the purpose of
    carrying out international transactions and to the transfer of that information abroad
    and to receive any data protection notices on their behalf.

    5.3 the account details to be entered into the application for the transaction
    contemplated in these terms and conditions should be those of your appropriate
    account with your bank which will be debited or credited with any sums due in
    respect of the transaction.

    6 Lloyds Bank plc and/or any member of the Lloyds Banking Group may be subject
    to sanctions and/or embargos imposed by the international community including
    the UK, EU, UN and the USA. Lloyds Bank plc may not accept instructions from
    the collecting bank or may refuse to receive from or may return to the collecting
    bank any payment or may refuse to make any payment to you or may refuse to take
    any action under or in connection with this collection if it would result, or is in our
    reasonable opinion likely to result, in a breach by Lloyds Bank plc or any member
    of the Lloyds Banking Group or any of their respective employees of any sanction
    or embargo whether or not imposed in the UK and Lloyds Bank plc will not be
    liable for any loss, damage, cost or expense arising out of or in connection with any
    failure to pay or to act as a result of any such sanction or embargo. Lloyds Bank Bank
    plc and/or its agents shall be permitted to disclose to the relevant authorities such
    information related to the collection as may be required.

    7 Lloyds Bank plc shall not be liable for any loss of profits, business, data or
    information or for any incidental, indirect, special or consequential damages whether
    arising from negligence, breach of contract or otherwise, even if informed of the
    possibility of those losses or damages. Except as otherwise specified herein Lloyds Bank
    plc shall not be liable for any direct losses arising out of or relating to any of its
    actions or omissions to act in respect of the transaction contemplated by these terms
    and conditions, except to the extent that any such losses are caused by Lloyds Bank
    plc’s wilful misconduct, fraud or gross negligence of Lloyds Bank plc.

    8 These terms and conditions and any disputes or claims arising out of or in connection
    with its subject matter (including non-contractual obligations) shall be governed by,
    construed and take effect in all respects in accordance with the laws of England. The
    parties irrevocably agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts
    to settle any dispute or claim that arises out of or in connection with these terms and
    conditions (and any non-contractual obligations). You acknowledge that the use of
    the collection in certain countries is subject to specific local legislation and regulations
    and you agree to comply with any such legislative requirements and regulations as
    though they were set out herein.
