This means the Credit Union can enforce this Agreement against any of you individually or all of you together.

4, Finance Charges. Separate finance charges for purchases and cash advances are determined by multiplying the periodic rate by the separate average daily balances for purchases and cash advances. Each average daily balance is determined by taking the beginning balance (of cash advances or purchases) or your Account each day, adding any new purchases or cash advances (whichever is applicable) and subtracting any payments or credits. The results are the daily balances. All the daily balances for the statement cycle are added and the total is divided by the number of days the statement cycle to arrive at the average daily balance for the cycle. Cash advances are always subject to FINANCE CHARGE from the date they are posted to your Account. If a grace period applies:

(a) Purchases. A Finance Charge will be imposed on Purchases posted during a Billing Cycle when the Previous Balance is not paid In full within the first twenty-five (25) days of the Billing Cycle.

There is no time period within which to pay to avoid the Finance Charge.
