Businesses often have important "intellectual property" that needs protection from competitors for the company to stay profitable. This could require patents, copyrights, trademarks, or preservation of trade secrets. Most businesses have names, logos, and similar branding techniques that could benefit from trademarking. Patents and copyrights in the United States are largely governed by federal law, while trade secrets and trademarking are mostly a matter of state law. Because of the nature of intellectual property, a business needs protection in every jurisdiction in which they are concerned about competitors. Many countries are signatories to international treaties concerning intellectual property, and thus companies registered in these countries are subject to national laws bound by these treaties. In order to protect trade secrets, companies may require employees to sign noncompete clauses which will impose limitations on an employee's interactions with stakeholders, and competitors.

To earn Velocity Frequent Flyer Points on purchases made with participating partners with the Velocity Daily Program, you must (1) enrol an eligible Australian Visa card in accordance with the instructions on the Velocity Daily website in the Velocity Daily Program; (2) use your enrolled Visa card to pay for your purchase at participating partners in store; and (3) select CREDIT or the payWave function when you complete your purchase in store (Eligible Transaction). Purchases made using an eligible card before your card is activated or purchases made using CHEQUE or SAVINGS will not earn Velocity Frequent Flyer Points. An eligible Australian Visa card is an active Visa Debit, Credit or Pre-paid card which has been issued in Australia. Visa-branded Gift cards or cards that have expired, have been cancelled or are otherwise invalid, are excluded from this program. You can enrol a maximum of five eligible cards. If a transaction is refunded or reversed within 30 days of the purchase, you will not earn Points on that transaction. If a transaction is partially refunded or reversed within 30 days of the date of the purchase, you will only receive Velocity Points for the portion of the transaction not refunded or reversed. Velocity Frequent Flyer Points will be allocated to your account on Eligible Transactions approximately 40 days after the date of purchase. The Points you have earned and are displayed as available may take up to 40 days to appear in your Velocity Frequent Flyer My Account. To find out how many points you will earn on eligible purchases, see our participating partners for more details. The Velocity Daily trial will commence on 3 April 2018 and is expected to continue until 30 June 2018. The trial period may be extended, delayed or suspended by us at any time without further notice to you.
