The Saving Accounts Terms and Conditions in force and as updated from time to time and these Specific Terms both apply to this Regular Saver (5). If there is any inconsistency between the Saving Accounts Terms and Conditions and the Specific Terms, the Specific Terms will apply.
In these Specific Terms:
'Anniversary Date' means the 12 month anniversary of the date that you opened your account;
'Deposit Month' means the month starting on the day of the month the account was opened; and
'Named Bank Account' means a UK bank or building society account that you've nominated for withdrawal and closure payments and on which you are named as an account holder.
