For avoidance of doubt, it is only the monies paid by the specific Account Holder that will be set off on the payout of all credit exposures.
    9. Marketlend may elect at any time to determine a liquidated loss on an Account and its Account Holder is liable for the liquidated loss. If Marketlend decrees it may use monies paid or due as set out in clause 17.7 to Investors' account.

18. Add funds and withdrawals

    1. Investors may add funds at any time with the minimum amount being A$1000. If an Investor adds funds that do not amount to A$1000, we will hold in credit until you reach A$1000 or unless otherwise agreed.

    4. Identification and other documents are required to be supplied by you prior to any withdrawal, and an external search will be conducted to verify your identity.
    5. Marketlend can only verify the Investor according to what information was provided by the Investor at the time of registration, and if it is the case that the information provided at registration is incorrect or non-existent, it is the Investor's responsibility and the Investor's risk that payment might not be made to you, due to an inability to verify the identity as required by the anti-money laundering requirements.
    6. Any suspicious transactions will be investigated and reported to the authorities.
