Payment of Fees - customer commitment
I/We apply to open a monthly credit account and acknowledge that I/We have read the terms stated and agree to abide by these terms.

Upon issuing ADC’s monthly statement I/We authorise ADC to deduct commission and expenses from funds held in the ADC Trust Account on our behalf.

Where I/We receive ‘paid direct’ funds, ADC will be notified immediately to cease further action with the debtor. ADC will invoice the commissions payable to us.

Once a debt is placed with ADC I/We understand that Aorangi Debt Collection will receive commission on any monies collected whether the debtor pays to Aorangi Debt Collection or to ourselves, including whether the debtor is taken to the Disputes Tribunal or the District Court.  

I/We agree to pay ADC strictly on the 20th day of the month following the date of Statement. Failure to do so may result in the stopping of credit facilities without notice, until payment is made. Overdue accounts will incur interest charged at 2% above ASB Banks overdraft interest rate.

  • Use only fair (accepted industry standards) and lawful ways to collect personal information.
  • Collect personal information directly from a client, subject or debtor if it is reasonable and practicable to do so.
  • At the time ADC collects personal information from the client, subject or debtor or as soon as practicable afterwards, we will take reasonable steps to make a client, subject or debtor aware of:
    • why we are collecting information about them;
    • Who else we might give it to; and any other specified matters.

Note that;
  • If the information is sensitive (as defined under the Act) the uses or disclosures allowed are more limited.
