Where significant changes are made, you will be required to reaccept the Terms and Conditions. Any subsequent access to, or use of, Member Online by you will constitute an acceptance of those modifications.
We will endeavour to inform users about changes to functionality before they come into effect, through channels deemed appropriate by QSuper. We reserve the right to change the functionality of Member Online at any time without prior written notification.
It is a requirement of Member Online that you provide a valid email address, and inform us if you change it. You agree to receive emails in relation to your use of Member Online.
You agree that where we are required by law to provide you with a document, we may provide that document electronically (whether provided on or through links on Member Online or via email). The information we will make available in this way includes significant event notifications, financial services guides, product disclosure statements, your benefit statement, our annual report, statements of advice, and exit statements. We recommend that you print a copy of any document so provided or file it electronically for future reference.
You agree not to dispute the validity or enforceability of electronic communications and you will be taken to have received such communications whether or not you access the communications on Member Online.
You may opt out or change your preferences for future communications at any time through Member Online, or by contacting us.
Please note that if you have already opted out of receiving this information electronically, we will continue to send it through the post.
We will endeavour to provide access to Member Online on a 24 hour basis, however there may be times when Member Online is unavailable due to scheduled maintenance, or for other reasons such as force majeure.
You acknowledge that:
When you access Member Online you will be required to set up a username and password that’s unique to you.
When you first log in to the QSuper app, you will be required to set up a Personal Identification Number ('PIN') and, if your device is compatible, a biometric identifier for greater convenience.
'Access Codes' includes your password, PIN, mobile passcodes and biometric identifiers such as Face ID, Touch ID, Facial recognition, and Fingerprint login for both iOS and Android devices. In combination with your username, your Access Codes are the keys to your account and allow anyone who correctly uses them to conduct transactions or operations on Member Online.
You may need to complete addition security verification checks to access funds or perform other transactions within Member Online. You acknowledge and accept that we cannot verify whether the user of correct log on information is a registered user of Member Online. Any actions by a person using that log on information and password will be deemed to be made by you or with your authority.
When we need additional security checks to process your online requests we may send an Access Code by SMS to your mobile phone number that is recorded with QSuper. If you change your mobile number please update your QSuper contact details accordingly. You’ll need to promptly enter the received Access Code into Member Online for the transaction to be processed.
We recommend you nominate a mobile phone number used only by you. If the mobile phone is also used by other people, they may receive, or be able to access your SMS Access Codes.
We don’t charge you a fee for sending SMS Access Codes to your mobile phone. However, your mobile phone service provider may impose fees and charges, including fees and charges for sending and receiving SMS messages. The payment of any such fees and charges is the responsibility of the mobile phone account holder. If you have any concerns regarding such fees and charges speak with your service provider.
If you choose not to comply with these Terms and Conditions, you are solely responsible for unauthorised actions for any activity or loss carried out by unauthorised persons who use your Access Codes.
You are responsible for any access to Member Online as a result of use of your Access Codes, including any use you have not approved (including where such use involves an unauthorised or fraudulent act) unless your Access Code has become known or accessed by a third party as a result of our negligence.
You must notify QSuper immediately if you know or suspect:
Contact us on the phone number supplied on our contact us page. You need to ensure:
We do not advise you to access Member Online from computer terminals which are shared with other users (e.g. internet cafes). It is difficult to ensure these computers are free of malicious software such as spyware which might allow someone to access your log on information and make unauthorised use of these. We also advise you not to use 'Autocomplete', 'Remember Me', or 'Stay Logged In' functionality in browsers.
QSuper can cancel or suspend your access to Member Online at any time, at our discretion without notice. All indemnities by you, and disclaimers and limitations of liability by QSuper will continue after termination.
QSuper reserves the right to end support for specific devices, operating system versions, browser versions and app versions. We may do so due to practicality (e.g. cost to support a declining user base) or security reasons.
You may cancel your registration with Member Online by notifying us and we will terminate your access within 5 business days.
You agree to indemnify us against all actions, suits, claims, demands, liabilities, costs, expenses, loss, and damage (including legal fees on a full indemnity basis) incurred or suffered by us:
except to the extent that liability is directly caused by a breach of these Terms and Conditions by us, or by any negligent act or omission by us.

If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is deemed unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and Conditions and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions.
