We stand for integrity, truthfulness and full compliance with the law.

ConnectOne believes it owes its clients far more than a place to save and borrow money. Our detailed Code of Conduct spells out our dedication to ensuring that personal data is never shared with anyone else, that our financial records are accurate and that our New York and New Jersey clients can count on us to follow the law and avoid all appearances of corruption or conflict of interest.

Safeguarding Confidential Information

Privacy Disclosure

In the conduct of ordinary business, ConnectOne Bank, (herein referred to as "Company" or "CNOB"), and its employees have access to a variety of confidential personal and business information about its clients. This policy statement addresses the Company's philosophy and standards designed to protect proprietary information and respect the confidentiality of our clients. We do not disclose information about our clients or former clients to non affiliated third parties, except as permitted by law. As a financial institution, information is critical in providing the quality of service our clients have come to expect. However, we also know that our clients entrust us with highly confidential information and expect that we will protect that information. We must all maintain strict standards on safeguarding that information.

No Disclosure Outside of Exceptions

ConnectOne Bank will never divulge any confidential clients information except as required to conduct normal business. We do not sell information about our clients or former clients to non-affiliated third parties. There are certain circumstances in which disclosure of client or former client information is required and permitted by law:

We may disclose information to third parties about your accounts or transactions you perform; (1) where it is necessary to complete transactions that a client requested; (2) in order to verify the existence and condition of an account for a third party, such as credit reporting agency or merchant; (3) in order to comply with government authorities or court orders; or (4) if the client gives us written authorization.

Confidentiality and Security

Each department of ConnectOne Bank maintains strict policies and procedures regarding client information and data protection in specific operations. Employee access to client information is restricted to information necessary to perform his/her individual job function in the normal course of business. Each employee shares in the responsibility for preserving the confidentiality of client and corporate information. You must become familiar with the policies and procedures in your department. If you are unclear on a particular policy or procedure, please consult your supervisor immediately.

We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard our clients' non-public personal information. There are company-wide policies on data security relating to mainframe (database) access and personal computer use. In all forms of access to client information, whether in person, telephone, ATM's, the Internet, etc., there are strict procedures in place to ensure that a client's identity is verified prior to providing any information, whether through personal passwords, or other form of identifying information.

Confidential and/or sensitive information collected by ConnectOne Bank must not be used or disclosed for any reason other than the intended purpose and must be protected from misuse, including misuse that could result in identity theft. Using the Company's confidential information for personal profit or advantage or disclosing confidential information to unauthorized persons (including company employees as well as non-employees) is strictly prohibited.

The violation of this policy or any CNOB policy regarding the safeguarding of confidential information will lead to disciplinary action up to, and including, termination.

Ensure the Integrity of Records

All Company records must be accurate and maintained with reliability and integrity. Every transaction must be reflected in an accurate and timely manner. False entries and/or participation in any activities that lead to false entries will be subject to disciplinary action. Additionally, any employee who intentionally falsifies any CNOB document or record will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination.

Tell the Truth

ConnectOne Bank's commitment to ethics in business includes a strong emphasis on candor and integrity. We must be truthful in all communications with one another, clients, internal and external auditors, regulators and attorneys. We must keep complete and accurate business records. Only by being honest and forthcoming will the Company maintain the respect and trust it needs to carry on its business operations successfully.

Know the Law

Every employee is expected to be familiar with the basic legal requirements that apply to his or her duties on the job. We can familiarize ourselves with the laws and regulations that apply to our work by receiving on-the-job training, reviewing applicable Company policies and procedures, attending related Company training, and of course, asking questions of our supervisors and Company attorneys.

When you need help understanding your legal obligations, you are expected to ask your supervisor or Laura Criscione, EVP, Chief Compliance Officer for instruction or advice.

  • the gift offered or accepted;
  • the name of the donor and his/her company affiliation;
  • the value of the gift;

Officials of CNOB must disclose all potential conflicts of interest, including those where the person has inadvertently been placed in a situation due to either a business or personal relationship.

Fair Dealing

Each employee, officer and director should undertake to deal fairly with the Company's clients, suppliers, competitors and employees. No employee should enter into an arrangement with a client, competitor or supplier that violates or has the appearance of violating any law or regulation governing competition. Additionally, no one should take advantage of another through manipulation, concealment, abuse of privileged information, misrepresentation of material facts, or any other unfair-dealing practices. Accordingly, every employee must follow the following guidelines at all times:

  • You must be truthful to clients, suppliers, and the government in all business dealings
  • You must not use or provide to a third party any business information for personal gain
  • You must not give or accept bribes, kickbacks, promises or preferential extensions of credit
  • You must handle all transactions, contracts and commitments based on objective business standards to avoid favoritism or perceived favoritism
  • You must not conspire or collude in any way with competitors

Protection and Proper Use of Company Property

All employees, officers and directors have a duty to protect the Company's property and assets and ensure their efficient and proper use. All Company assets should be used for legitimate business purposes and in accordance with Company policies. The use of Company electronic systems, including the telephone system and computer systems and any Company issued equipment must be in accordance with the Technology Related Policies set forth in the Company's Employee Manual.

Conflicts of Interest

Policy Statement

It is the responsibility of each employee to ensure that they remain free from any potential personal or private business interests that might adversely influence his or her judgment as an CNOB employee. Compliance with this policy is a condition of employment with CNOB. Employees of CNOB should avoid situations where their personal interests could conflict with, or even appear to conflict with, the interests of the Company.

A "conflict of interest" occurs when your personal interests interfere or even appears to interfere in any way with the interests of the Company. You are expected to avoid all situations that might lead to a real or perceived conflict between your self-interest and your duties and responsibilities as an employee, officer or director of the Company.

Any position or interest, financial or otherwise, which could materially conflict with your performance as an employee, officer or director of the Company, or which affects or could reasonably be expected to affect your independence or judgment concerning transactions between the Company, its clients, suppliers or competitors or otherwise reflects negatively on the Company would be considered a conflict of interest.

You shall not represent the Company in any transaction with respect to which you have any material connection or financial interest. Without limiting the scope of the term, a "material connection" includes the involvement of any family member or close personal friend. "Family member" includes spouse, son, daughter, parent, sister, brother, grandparent, grandchild, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew, cousin, father-in-law, mother-in-law, sister-in-law, brother-in-law or any other members of a household who are not otherwise included in this list of relatives. The transactions covered by this rule include, but are not limited to, approval of Bank overdrafts authorizing or accepting checks on uncollected funds, waiving Bank charges or other nominal fees, making loans, waiving financial statements or similar activities.

As an officer or employee of the Company, you should refuse to serve personally as an executor, trustee, or guardian of an estate or trust of a client unless the client is a relative of the employee.

Officers and employees of CNOB must not:

  1. Invest in a client's business unless the investment is made by the purchase of stock that is actively traded and the Company has no access to confidential information relating to the business; or
  2. Subscribe to new issues of stock in a client's business; or
  3. Invest in a client's business or enable others to do so as a result of material inside information.

As a condition of your employment, you will be required to complete an initial Conflicts of Interest Disclosure Form and then an Annual Employee Conflicts of Interest Disclosure Form. If during the course of the year, circumstances change relating to conflicts of interest or potential conflicts of interest, you are also required to update your Conflict of Interest Disclosure Form within 30 days of that change in circumstance.

Outside Business Relationships

Before agreeing to act as a director, officer, consultant, or advisor for any other business organization, as an officer or employee of the Company, you must report in writing to and receive approval in writing by the Company's CEO / President and/or Executive Vice President in order to avoid any conflicts of interest and to maintain independence.

Acceptance of outside employment by officers and employees of the Company, other than as director, officer, consultant, or advisor as described above must also be reported in writing to and approved in writing by the Company's CEO / President and/or Executive Vice President.

Directors should disclose all new directorships or potential directorships to the Board of Directors or its Executive Committee in order to avoid any conflicts of interest and to maintain independence.

Outside activities of whatever nature cannot be permitted to interfere with an employee, or Officer's attendance and/or job performance or with the CNOB's reputation as a trusted financial institution.

Insider Trading

It is also unethical and illegal to buy, sell or trade or otherwise participate in transactions involving the common stock or other security of any company while in possession of similar non-public material information concerning such company. Any questions concerning the propriety of participating in a transaction involving the stock of the Company or the stock of another company stock or any other security transaction should be directed to the EVP/CFO.

Extensions of Credit

CNOB may extend credit to any executive officer, director, or principal shareholder of the Company only on substantially the same terms as those prevailing for comparable transactions with other persons or that may be available to bank employees generally as permitted by and in accordance with Regulation O of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.

Reporting

A Duty to Report

As part of its commitment to ethical and legal behavior, CNOB requires its employees to report to the Company any actual or apparent violations of law so that they can be investigated and dealt with. Failure to comply with this duty to come forward is a violation of policy and can result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination.

Procedure for Reporting

Normally, you should take issues to your immediate supervisor. However, if you are not comfortable doing that, you may speak with:

  • Any member of management at your branch
  • A member of management at the headquarters location
  • Laura Criscione, EVP/CCO at (201) 816-8900 ext. 6001

If you are not comfortable using any of the reporting methods above, you may call the contact the Chair of the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors at 201-567-4100

No Retaliation

  • If you have enrolled in CeB Bill Paying Service, you may access the checking account that you have authorized the Bank to use to pay bills for you.

Limitation on Frequency of Transfers:

You may access your accounts and make transfers at any time.  Although there are no restrictions on the number of transfers you may make from your checking and interest bearing checking accounts, Federal Regulations limit the number of transfers which may be made from a money market or savings account to another account or third party by preauthorized, automatic or telephonic (including data transmission) transfer to six per month.  Transfers made through CeB from a money market or savings account count towards these limitations.  Please refer to your deposit account disclosure for additional information.

Limitations on Dollar Amount of Transfers:

You may transfer up to the available balance in your account.

Processing of Transfers:

Transfers processed prior to 9:00 PM EST Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, will be posted on the same day. Transfers made after 9:00 PM EST Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, may not be posted until the next business day.  Transfers made on the weekend or holiday will be posted on the next business day. Telephone instructions to make a transfer cannot be canceled after the system has accepted them.

Stop Payments:

  • You may place a stop payment, utilizing CeB, on any check that you have written.  If you do, you agree to the following terms and conditions:
    • The information on the stop payment must precisely identify the check number, the payee and the amount of the check.  If you do not give exact information, the Bank assumes no responsibility for stopping payment.
    • The stop payment must be received in time to give us a reasonable time to act upon it.  Stop payments received before 3:00 p.m. on Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays are processed on the day received.   Stop payments received after 3:00 p.m. or on a weekend or legal holiday may not be processed until the next business day.  A stop payment must be received before the check has been presented for payment.
    • The stop payment order is effective for six months unless renewed through CeB or in writing before the expiration of six months.  If the stop payment order is not renewed before the expiration of six months, it will automatically terminate and the Bank is free to pay the check.  In such an instance, you hereby agree to release and do waive any and all claims against the Bank with respect to the stop payment order or the check itself and you further agree to indemnify and hold the Bank harmless with regard to any and all claims involving the stop payment order and/or check, which includes the Bank’s reasonable attorney fees and costs.
    • You understand that there may be claims or demands made against the Bank as a result of your request to the Bank. You agree that you will defend the Bank and will be responsible to the Bank if any claim or demand of whatever nature, is made against the Bank with respect to a stop payment order and/or the check itself.  You agree to indemnify and defend the Bank and to reimburse the Bank for any reasonable costs, expenses or attorney’s fees that the Bank may incur in defending itself against any such claims or demands.  You understand that the Bank will use all reasonable efforts to comply with a stop payment order.   However, you understand fully that unless the check number, the payee and the amount of the check are correctly entered on the stop payment order, the Bank assumes no responsibility for stopping payment and is not liable to you if a stop payment cannot be accomplished.
    • You  agree  to  pay  a  stop  payment  fee,  as  noted  in  ConnectOne  Bank’s Miscellaneous Bank Fees and Charges, for each new stop payment and for each renewal of a stop payment entered through CeB.
    • You must contact the Bank to stop payment on automatic debits processed by the Automated Clearing House (ACH), as this request requires additional documentation to be completed.

E-Statement:

For each account that you have specified the “Online” delivery method, a paper copy of the statement will no longer be produced.  When you change an account statement delivery method  from  “Online”  to  “Paper”  you  will  lose  access  to  any  statements  previously delivered online. You may want to save your online statement before making this change.

ConnectOne Bank’s External Transfer Service for Online Banking Customers

  • Within Online Banking, you have the option of participating in ConnectOne Bank’s External Transfer Service which allows you to transfer funds between your linked personal deposit accounts at  ConnectOne Bank and  certain deposit accounts owned by  you  at  other financial institutions using an account number and financial institution identifier. An inbound transfer moves funds into an account you own at ConnectOne Bank from an account you own outside ConnectOne Bank. An outbound transfer moves funds from an account you own at ConnectOne Bank to an account outside ConnectOne Bank that is owned by you.

You must be enrolled in Online Banking to use ConnectOne Bank’s External Transfer Service. You will need to provide certain identifying information about each non-ConnectOne Bank account in order to register that account for this service. For inbound transfers, you agree that you will only attempt to register non-ConnectOne Bank personal accounts that you own or for which you have the authority to transfer funds.

Based on a pre-notification process, transfers may take up to 3 business days to process. Funds will be debited from your ConnectOne Bank account on the business day you direct us to initiate processing of the transfer, and typically will be credited to the receiving account on the next business day after the transfer is initiated.  Also, external transfers will be subject to the following limits:

Per Item: $3,000.00
Daily Limit: $3,000.00

Special rules apply to Remittance Transfers, including, but not limited to, disclosures, cancellation and refund rights and error resolution rights. See Electronic Funds Transfer Agreement for details.  Some of the above services may not be available for certain accounts, customers, or if you access Online Banking through Mobile Banking Apps or Mobile Web. ConnectOne Bank cannot guarantee the timely delivery or return of funds as a result of the failure of another financial institution to act in a timely manner.

You agree that you will have sufficient available funds in the designated deposit account to cover all outbound transfers on the date scheduled. If an account does not have sufficient funds available on the scheduled transfer date, the transfer will not be made. For other deposit accounts, if the account does not have sufficient available funds on the scheduled date, we may elect not to initiate one or more of the transfers. If we do elect to initiate the transfer, it may cause an overdraft in your account in which case you shall be liable for the overdraft and any overdraft fees and interest thereon, as set forth in your Deposit Agreement. If we do elect to  initiate  the  transfer,  you  agree  to  pay  all  related  fees  as  disclosed  in  your  Deposit Agreement.

Miscellaneous:

We reserve the right to temporarily suspend this service at any time without prior warning. Our liability for failing to make a transfer under this Agreement is specifically limited by the Electronic Fund Transfer Act, as well as all other applicable Federal and State laws.  The provisions of this Act are outlined in your Electronic Funds Transfer Disclosure.

Termination:

This agreement will remain in effect until you or the Bank terminates it.  A termination by you will not be effective until the Bank has received from you a signed written notice of the termination and has had reasonable time to act upon it.  If there is no activity on your CeB service for a period of 180 days, the Bank will terminate your service. If we do this, you will be required to re-enroll in CeB.

Regulations:

Transfers made in accordance with this Agreement, and all rights and liabilities of both you and the Bank, are subject to the provisions of the Electronic Fund Transfer Act or Fair Credit Reporting Act.   You were provided with a copy of the Electronic Fund Transfers Disclosure when you opened your account.   You should review this disclosure prior to performing transfers through CeB and Bill Pay Service as it gives general information outlining your rights and responsibilities for these transactions.

Amendments:

The Bank reserves the right to change any terms or fee disclosed in this agreement upon twenty-one days written notice to you.

Continuing Effect:

This agreement shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of New Jersey. In the event any provision of this agreement conflicts with state or federal law or is held to be invalid by a court, the remainder of the agreement will continue to be valid.

As used in this Business eBanking and Services and Business Mobile Banking Application Agreement (“Agreement”), the words “you” and “your” refer to the account holder(s) and the words “us”, and “we” refer to ConnectOne Bank.  You must have at least one ConnectOne Bank business account to enroll in Business eBanking (“BeB”) and Business Mobile Banking (“BMB”).  There are several services available within BeB and BMB, and your usage of BeB and BMB affirms your consent to the terms outlined in this Agreement.  Some services may require you to sign an addendum or separate agreement.

BUSINESS EBANKING AND SERVICES

Primary Administrator and Administrator Responsibility

Primary Administrator must be an authorized signor of all accounts of the entity or entities to which a unique Company ID will be assigned. Primary Administrator will act as the primary contact and liaison to us for all changes under such Company ID. You agree and understand that you are the Primary Administrator of your BeB profile.

As the Primary Administrator, you are responsible for creating and managing additional user(s) and assigning entitlements to those user(s) including the ability to create users and approve transfers and/or transactions (including but not limited to internal transfers, bill payments, ACHs and wires).

The Primary Administrator may also assign administrative rights to other users. By doing so, the Primary Administrator is authorizing the user to act in the same capacity as the Primary Administrator. A user with administrative rights (an “Administrator”) will have the same authority as the Primary Administrator such that the Administrator will have the ability to create and manage all users including the ability to create additional Administrators, accounts, and security features (e.g., assign soft tokens, an out of band authentication, approval rights, etc).

It is the responsibility of the Primary Administrator to monitor any and all actions of the Administrator(s) and other users. You assume the sole responsibility and liability on all transactions and orders entered into BeB under your Company ID. We will not monitor the authorization given to users, and we may act on any transaction or order entered into BEB by any of those users, within the rights and privileges assigned to them by an Administrator.

It is also your responsibility to immediately notify us by calling our Client Connections Center at 844-266-2548 and then follow up in writing if a Primary Administrator is no longer authorized to use BeB. You acknowledge and agree that we will have no liability for transactions or payments which were made under a Primary Administrator’s User ID and password unless you have notified us in a signed written letter to your branch of account by email, U.S postal service or fax.

The change will be effective after we have had a reasonable time to act in removing or restricting the access of that Primary Administrator.

The Primary Administrator and/or Administrators will manage all accounts added to the BeB profile under the designated Company ID by assigning the account access and services to users. A Primary Administrator can request accounts for another entity to be added to a BeB profile by sending a secure message to us through BeB. To add accounts for another entity, the message must include the EIN for that entity.

You are also responsible for deleting users who no longer require access. We will not be liable for any losses due to payment instructions received by a user who you failed to delete.

Stop Payments

You may place a stop payment order, utilizing BeB, on any check that you have written. The information on the stop payment order must identify the check number, the payee, and the amount of the check.

We will use all commercially reasonable efforts to comply with a stop payment order. However, you understand fully that unless the check number, the payee and the amount of the check are accurately provided on the stop payment order, we assume no responsibility if the stop payment order is not processed or completed.

The stop payment order must be received in time to give us a reasonable time to act upon it. Stop payment orders received before 3:00 P.M. on a Business Day are processed on the day received. Stop payment orders received after 3:00 P.M. on a Business Day may not be processed until the next Business Day. Business Day is defined in this Agreement as any day that is not a weekend or a holiday observed by the Federal Reserve. A stop payment order must be received before the check has been presented for payment.

Your stop payment order is effective for six (6) months unless renewed through BeB or in writing before the expiration of the six (6) month period. If the stop payment order is not renewed within the six (6) month period, it will automatically terminate and we may pay the check. In such an instance, you hereby agree to release and waive any and all claims against us with respect to the stop payment order or the check itself. You further agree to indemnify and hold us harmless with regard to any and all fees, expenses and costs that we may incur involving the stop payment order and/or check, including, but not limited to, any attorney’s fees and costs.

You understand that there may be claims or demands made against us as a result of your stop payment order. You agree that you will indemnify and defend us from any claim or demand of whatever nature with respect to the stop payment order and/or the check itself, and in lieu of a defense, if we decide to defend ourselves, you agree to reimburse us for any reasonable costs, expenses or attorney’s fees that we may incur in defending ourselves against any such claims or demands.

You agree to pay a stop payment order fee, as noted in our Miscellaneous Bank Fees and Charges Schedule, for each stop payment and for each renewal of a stop payment.

You must contact us to place a stop payment order on any ACH transaction, as this request requires additional documentation to be completed.

BUSINESS MOBILE BANKING APPLICATION

Your enrollment in BeB includes access to the Business Mobile Banking Application (“BMB”) by any BeB user. BMB requires the use of an eligible mobile device such as a cellular phone (“Mobile Device”). BMB is not supported by all Mobile Devices. BMB allows you to obtain account information and make various selected transactions.

You must first register for BMB and select requested services by signing onto BeB from our homepage (https://www.connectonebank.com) using a personal computer.

There is no charge for the use of BMB. However, charges and fees may be assessed by your wireless telecommunications provider for wireless data and standard text messaging (also referred to as SMS). You are responsible for any fees or other charges that your telecommunications provider may charge. Please check with your wireless telecommunications provider before subscribing to BMB.

You will need to download an application to your Mobile Device. This application allows you to sign on to and interact with the bank accounts you have added to BeB. Specifically, BMB will allow you to view account balances, pay bills and make certain internal transfers of funds. We may modify, expand or reduce these features in the future.

In the event of any modification, you are responsible for ensuring that you understand how to properly use your Mobile Device and we will not be liable to you for any losses caused by your failure to properly use BMB or your Mobile Device.

The BMB application is owned by a non-affiliated third party (“Licensor”). You hereby agree not to decompile or reverse engineer or otherwise alter the application in any way.

In the event your enrolled Mobile Device is lost or stolen, you agree to update your enrollment information and make the appropriate changes to disable the use of such device(s). You understand that there are risks associated with using a Mobile Device, and that in the event of theft or loss, your confidential information could be compromised.

Please review our Privacy Policy which outlines additional steps that we take to protect your personal information. The system will automatically lock out the user after three failed attempts to access BeB or BMB. In addition, the system will automatically timeout if your session activity remains idle for a period of twenty minutes.

We use out of band authentication (OOBA) to identify unknown devices. If the system does not recognize a computer or location, the user will be prompted to complete an additional authentication process via telephone or SMS text.

It is your responsibility to maintain a protected network for your users who access BeB or BMB, including, but not limited to, maintaining latest versions and patches of anti-virus and spyware detection software on computer systems and Mobile Devices. Public or other unsecured networks should not be used for logging into BeB or BMB.

All users should be utilizing an up to date browser meeting the minimum system requirements.

BeB and BMB do not utilize pop-up windows to display messages or errors or to redirect you. They are displayed on a secure page. We will never provide an error message instructing you to wait before trying to log in again.

BEB offers an email alert feature where you can manage a variety of notifications to be sent in certain situations. We encourage you to enable alerts that suit your needs as an additional security feature.

Bill Pay Service

Your enrollment in BeB and BMB include Bill Pay Service (“Bill Pay”).There is no monthly charge for Bill Pay, but please refer to our Miscellaneous Bank Fees and Charges Schedule for miscellaneous charges that may apply.

Bill Pay allows you to send payments to both companies and individuals from any account that you designate on BeB or BMB (“Funding Account”). Payees may be added at any time.

Payments will be processed in accordance with the payment instructions provided by you or any other user to whom you provided Bill Pay entitlement. Your Funding Account will be debited on the “Send On” Date that you select and deliver those funds to the payee that you select on or around the “Deliver By” Date. The “Deliver By” Date will vary depending on the payment method (i.e. check or ACH).

When a user enters payment instructions, you expressly authorize us to withdraw the payment amount from your Funding Account and to remit those funds to the designated payee on your behalf. Additionally, with such payment instruction, you are also authorizing us to debit any applicable service related charge from any of your accounts. You further authorize us to credit your Funding Account for any payment returned from, or undeliverable to, the payee. In addition, you certify that the Funding Account is an account from which you are authorized to make payments and incur debits.

You agree to have available funds in the Funding Account on the “Send On” Date in amounts sufficient to process each payment, as well as to cover any other payment obligations you may have to us. We reserve the right at our sole discretion, without liability, to reject, suspend or reverse a payment if you or any user fails to comply with this requirement or any other terms of this Agreement. If you fail to have sufficient funds in the Funding Account, and we choose not to exercise or have not exercised our right to reverse, suspend or reject a payment, you agree to pay for such payment obligations on demand. You further agree that we may, at our option, debit any of your accounts to cover such payment obligation without any notice to you. If a payee claims to have not received a payment, please contact our Client Connection Center at 844-266-2548.

Any payment can be modified or cancelled prior to the Cut-Off Time (8:00 PM CT) on the Business Day the payment is to be processed (i.e., the “Send On” Date). However, once a payment is in-process (i.e., after this Cut-Off Time ), it cannot be modified or cancelled.

Transfers

Internal Transfers

You may access your accounts to make transfers at any time. Although there are no limits on the number of transfers you may make on BeB and BMB, federal regulations require e financial institutions to limit the way withdrawals may be made from a savings or a money market account. Specifically, federal regulations impose a six (6) limit transfer per statement cycle on certain types of transfers. Transfers made through BeB and BMB are considered preauthorized transfers which count towards this limit. Please refer to your Business Deposit Account Agreement and disclosures for additional information.

Limitations on Dollar Amount of Transfers

You may transfer up to the available balance in your account.

Processing of Account to Account Transfers

Transfers processed prior to 9:00 PM EST Monday on a Business Day will be posted on the same day. Transfers made after 9:00 PM EST on a Business Day may not be posted until the next Business Day. Transfers made on a non-Business Day as defined in this Agreement will be posted on the next Business Day.

Other Transfer Guidelines

You agree that you will have sufficient available funds in the designated account to cover all outbound transfers on the date scheduled. If an account does not have sufficient funds available on the scheduled transfer date, the transfer will not be made. For other deposit accounts, if the account does not have sufficient available funds on the scheduled date, we may elect not to initiate one or more of the transfers. If we elect to initiate the transfer, it may cause an overdraft in your account in which case you shall be liable for the overdraft and any overdraft fees and interest thereon, as set forth in your Business Deposit Account Agreement. If we elect to initiate the transfer, you agree to pay all related fees as disclosed in your Business Deposit Account Agreement.

ConnectOne Bank Terms of Use for Mobile Payment Services

Last modified: April 2022

These terms of use for mobile payment services (the "Terms") apply when you choose to add a debit card issued by ConnectOne Bank ("Card") to a mobile payment wallet ("Wallet"). In these Terms, "you" and "your" refer to the holder of the Card, and "we," "our," and "Bank" refer to ConnectOne Bank.

When you add a Card to a Wallet, you agree to these Terms:

1.        Adding a Card. A Card may be added to any eligible Wallet by following the instructions of the Wallet provider (e.g., ApplePay, GooglePay, Samsung Pay, etc.). Only Cards indicated as eligible can be added to an eligible Wallet. A Card may be added to multiple Wallets and through multiple eligible devices. The Terms apply to each Card in each Wallet and to your use of each Card in each Wallet.  You understand that your use of a Card through a Wallet is subject to the agreements or terms of use required by the Wallet provider, third party wireless companies, and/or data service providers and others (each, a "Service Provider"). You may not add a Card to a Wallet or use a Card in a Wallet if the Card has a negative balance, or if the Card has been cancelled, suspended or closed for any reason.

2.        The terms of the Cardholder Agreement do not change. The terms of the Cardholder Agreement governing the Card ("Cardholder Agreement") do not change when you add the Card to a Wallet. A Wallet simply provides another way for you to make purchases with the Card. Any applicable fees and charges that apply to the Card will also apply when you use a Wallet to access the Card. Bank does not charge any additional fees for adding the Card to a Wallet or using the Card in a Wallet. The Wallet provider and Service Providers may charge fees.

3.        Bank is not responsible for the Wallet. Bank is not the provider of each Wallet you use, and is not responsible for providing Wallet services to you. Bank is responsible for supplying information securely to the Wallet provider to allow use of the Card in the Wallet. Bank is not responsible for any failure of a Wallet or the inability to use a Wallet for any transaction. Bank is not responsible for the performance or non- performance of the Wallet provider or any other Service Provider regarding any agreement you enter into with the Wallet provider or associated third party that may impact use of a Wallet. Questions about how to use a Wallet should be addressed to the Wallet provider.

4.        Wallet functions.  By adding the Card to a Wallet, the Card may be used to make purchases where the Wallet is accepted but restrictions may apply to use of the Card and/or the Wallet. Card use restrictions include, but are not limited to:  restricted geographic or merchant locations where there is a higher risk of fraud or illegal activity; restrictions to comply with laws or prevent Bank liability; and other restrictions to prevent fraud and other losses. Information about the Card and certain recent transactions may also be made available through a Wallet.  The Wallet may not be accepted everywhere the Card is accepted.

5.        Security.  You agree to protect and keep confidential your User ID, passwords and all other authentication information required for your use of a Card in a Wallet. If you share any of these credentials with others, third parties may be able to use your Card through a Wallet and access Card information made available through the Wallet. To complete certain purchases, a merchant may require you to present a physical Card or government-issued form of identification.

6.        Billing errors. You are responsible for identifying and reporting errors in accordance with the section of the Cardholder Agreement containing information about your right to dispute errors if any occur when you use a Card in a Wallet. Any reported error will be resolved in accordance with the terms disclosed in the Cardholder Agreement. 

7.        Ending or suspending use of a Card.  Your ability to use a Card in a Wallet can be ended or suspended at any time and the Bank has the right to block transactions made with a Card through a Wallet at any time. You may remove your Card from a Wallet by following the instructions provided by the Wallet provider.

8.        Privacy and security.  You agree that by adding a Card to a Wallet, information about you will be exchanged with the Wallet provider, Service Providers, the Card networks (e.g., Visa® and Mastercard®) and others in order to facilitate any Wallet services you request; to make information about Card transactions available to you; and/or to improve your ability to obtain Wallet services. We do not control how the Wallet provider or Service Providers use information received in connection with the Card.  Use of a Wallet involves the electronic transmission of personal information through third party connections. Reasonable commercial efforts will be used to ensure that information sent in connection with your use of a Wallet is sent securely. However, Bank is not responsible for the security of information once it has been provided to the Wallet provider or any Service Provider; Bank is not responsible if a security breach occurs that affects any such information stored by a Wallet provider or a Service Provider.

9.        Disclaimer of warranties. YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT USE OF A CARD YOU ADD TO A WALLET IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE CARD MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH A WALLET IS PROVIDED TO YOU "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE," WITH ALL DEFECTS THAT MAY EXIST FROM TIME TO TIME AND WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, AND BANK, ON BEHALF OF ITSELF AND ITS SUPPLIERS, HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS WITH RESPECT TO ANY CARD YOU ADD TO A WALLET, EITHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ACCURACY, QUIET ENJOYMENT, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS.

10.      Governing law. The Terms are governed by federal law and, to the extent that state law applies, the laws of the state that apply to the Cardholder Agreement of the Card. Disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms are subject to the dispute resolution procedures described in the Cardholder Agreement.

11.      Changes to the Terms. The Terms may be changed at any time. You agree to any such changes by continued use of the Card in a Wallet and/or by keeping the Card in a Wallet.  The date of the most recent change to the Terms appears at the beginning of the Terms, immediately below the caption.

12.      Questions.  If you have questions, disputes, or complaints about a Wallet, contact the Wallet provider using the information provided to you.  If you have questions, disputes, or complaints about a Card, refer to the contact information contained in the Cardholder Agreement and printed on the back of the physical Card.

 13. If additional verification is required to add your card to this digital wallet, we may need to ask for additional verification using text message or email. If you choose text messages as your verification method, you consent to receive text messages at the mobile phone number you have on file with us for this card. Text messages may be transmitted using auto-dialer technology. Your usual wireless carrier fees may apply. 

One message per user. Message and Data Rates May Apply. The mobile carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages. 

HELP instructions: Text HELP to 91098.

COMPOUNDING AND CREDITING. Interest will be compounded daily and will be credited to your account monthly. The annual percentage yield assumes interest will remain on deposit until maturity. A withdrawal will reduce earnings. If interest is credited to another account or paid to you by check, this may reduce earnings and may negate the effect of interest compounding. If you close your account before interest is credited, you will not receive the accrued interest.

MINIMUM BALANCE REQUIREMENTS. You must deposit $500.00 to open this account.

BALANCE COMPUTATION METHOD. We use the daily balance method to calculate interest on your account. This method applies a daily periodic rate to the principal in the account each day.

ACCRUAL ON NONCASH DEPOSITS. Interest begins to accrue on the business day you deposit noncash items (for example, checks).

TRANSACTION LIMITATIONS. You may not make deposits into or withdrawals from your account until the maturity date.

MATURITY DATE. Your account will mature after 58 months.

EARLY WITHDRAWAL PROVISIONS. We will impose a penalty if you withdraw any or all of the deposited funds before the maturity date. The fee imposed will equal 360 days of interest. The early withdrawal penalty will be deducted from the interest earned. If you have not earned enough interest or if the interest has already been paid to you, the penalty will be deducted from the principal. We will honor a request for early withdrawal without penalty if: a) an account holder dies or is judicially declared mentally incompetent, b) the account is withdrawn within 7 days of opening and you forfeit the interest earned.

RENEWAL POLICIES. Your account will automatically renew at maturity. You will have a grace period of 10 calendar days after the maturity date to withdraw the funds in the account without being charged an early withdrawal penalty. Upon maturity, your account will automatically renew to a 60 month term. The rate on the account will be the 60 month rate being offered at the date of maturity.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR ACCOUNT

What Is a Substitute Check?

Substitute Checks and Your Rights

To make check processing faster, federal law permits banks to replace original checks with "substitute checks." These checks are similar in size to original checks with a slightly reduced image of the front and back of the original check. The front of a substitute check states: "This is a legal copy of your check. You can use it the same way you would use the original check." You may use a substitute check as proof of payment just like the original check.

Some or all of the checks that you receive back from us may be substitute checks. This notice describes rights you have when you receive substitute checks from us. The rights in this notice do not apply to original checks or to electronic debits to your account. However, you have rights under other law with respect to those transactions.

What Are My Rights Regarding Substitute Checks?

In certain cases, federal law provides a special procedure that allows you to request a refund for losses you suffer if a substitute check is posted to your account (for example, if you think that we withdrew the wrong amount from your account or that we withdrew money from your account more than once for the same check). The losses you may attempt to recover under this procedure may include the amount that was withdrawn from your account and fees that were charged as a result of the withdrawal (for example, bounced check fees).

The amount of your refund under this procedure is limited to the amount of your loss or the amount of the substitute check, whichever is less. You also are entitled to interest on the amount of your refund if your account is an interest-bearing account. If your loss exceeds the amount of the substitute check, you may be able to recover additional amounts under other law. If you use this procedure, you may receive up to $2,500.00 of your refund (plus interest if your account earns interest) within 10 Business Days after we received your claim and the remainder of your refund (plus interest if your account earns interest) not later than 45 calendar days after we received your claim. We may reverse the refund (including any interest on the refund) if we later are able to demonstrate that the substitute check was correctly posted to your account.

How Do I Make a Claim for a Refund?

If you believe that you have suffered a loss relating to a substitute check that you received and that was posted to your account, please call us at: 844-266-2548 or write to us at: ConnectOne Bank, 301 Sylvan Avenue Englewood Cliffs, NJ 07632

You must contact us within 40 calendar days of the date that we mailed (or otherwise delivered by a means to which you agreed) the substitute check in question or the account statement showing that the substitute check was posted to your account, whichever is later. We will extend this time period if you were not able to make a timely claim because of extraordinary circumstances. Your claim must include:

- A description of why you have suffered a loss (for example, you think the amount withdrawn was incorrect);
- An estimate of the amount of your loss;
- An explanation of why the substitute check you received is insufficient to confirm that you suffered a loss; and

- A copy of the substitute check and/or the following information to help us identify the substitute check such as the check number, the name of the person to whom you wrote the check, the amount of the check.

MINIMUM BALANCE REQUIREMENTS. No minimum balance requirements apply to this account.

PROCESSING ORDER. All credit transactions are processed first. Debits, or withdrawals, from your account will be processed from the lowest dollar amount to the highest dollar amount. The processing order of these items is important because if there is not enough money in the account to pay for the items in the order they are processed in accordance with the processing order, there may be an overdraft on your account which may result in overdraft or non-sufficient funds fees or an increase in the amount of these fees.

TRANSACTION LIMITATIONS. No transaction limitations apply to this account.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR ACCOUNT. - If an average daily balance of equal to or greater than $500.00 is maintained throughout the statement cycle and a direct deposit is received, foreign ATM fees will be refunded up to $10 per statement cycle.

FEES AND CHARGES. Please refer to the separate fee schedule provided to you with this disclosure for information about fees and charges associated with this account. A fee schedule will be provided to you at the time you open an account, periodically when fees or charges change, and upon request.

NOTICE OF RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES

The use of any electronic fund transfer services described in this document creates certain rights and responsibilities regarding these services as described below.

RIGHT TO RECEIVE DOCUMENTATION OF YOUR TRANSFERS.

TRANSACTION RECEIPTS. Depending on the location of an ATM, you may not be given the option to receive a receipt if your transaction is $15.00 or less. Upon completing a transaction of more than $15.00, you will receive a printed receipt documenting the transaction (unless you choose not to get a paper receipt). These receipts (or the transaction number given in place of the paper receipt) should be retained to verify that a transaction was performed. A receipt will be provided for any transaction of more than $15.00 made with your ATM Card or Debit Card at a Participating Merchant. If the transaction is $15.00 or less, the Participating Merchant is not required to provide a receipt.

PERIODIC STATEMENTS. If your account is subject to receiving a monthly statement, all EFT transactions will be reported on it. If your account is subject to receiving a statement less frequently than monthly, then you will continue to receive your statement on that cycle, unless there are EFT transactions, in which case you will receive a monthly statement. In any case you will receive your statement at least quarterly.

PREAUTHORIZED DEPOSITS. If you have arranged to have direct deposits made to your account at least once every 60 days from the same person or company:

  • you can call us at (844)266-2548 to find out whether or not the deposit has been made.

USING YOUR CARD AND PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION NUMBER ("PIN"). In order to assist us in maintaining the security of your account and the terminals, the ATM Card or Debit Card remains our property and may be revoked or canceled at any time without giving you prior notice. You agree not to use your ATM Card or Debit Card for a transaction that would cause your account balance to go below zero, or to access an account that is no longer available or lacks sufficient funds to complete the transaction, including any available line of credit. We will not be required to complete any such transaction, but if we do, we may, at our sole discretion, charge or credit the transaction to another account; you agree to pay us the amount of the improper withdrawal or transfer upon request.

Your ATM Card may only be used with your PIN. Certain transactions involving your Debit Card require use of your PIN. Your PIN is used to identify you as an authorized user. Because the PIN is used for identification purposes, you agree to notify ConnectOne Bank immediately if your ATM Card or Debit Card is lost or if the secrecy of your PIN is compromised. You also agree not to reveal your PIN to any person not authorized by you to use your ATM Card or Debit Card or to write your PIN on your ATM Card or Debit Card or on any other item kept with your ATM Card or Debit Card. We have the right to refuse a transaction on your account when your ATM Card or Debit Card or PIN has been reported lost or stolen or when we reasonably believe there is unusual activity on your account.

The security of your account depends upon your maintaining possession of your ATM Card or Debit Card and the secrecy of your PIN. You may change your PIN if you feel that the secrecy of your PIN has been compromised. You may change your PIN at our ATM.

RIGHTS REGARDING PREAUTHORIZED TRANSFERS.

RIGHTS AND PROCEDURES TO STOP PAYMENTS. If you have instructed us to make regular preauthorized transfers out of your account, you may stop any of the payments. To stop a payment,

  • call us at: (844)266-2548
  • or write to: 301 Sylvan Avenue, Englewood Cliffs, NJ 07632

We must receive your call or written request at least three (3) business days prior to the scheduled payment. If you call, please have the following information ready: your account number, the date the transfer is to take place, to whom the transfer is being made and the amount of the scheduled transfer. If you call, we will require you to put your request in writing and deliver it to us within fourteen (14) days after you call.

NOTICE OF VARYING AMOUNTS. If you have arranged for automatic periodic payments to be deducted from your checking or savings account and these payments vary in amount, you will be notified by the person or company you are going to pay ten days prior to the payment date of the amount to be deducted. You may choose instead to get this notice only when the payment would differ by more than a certain amount from the previous payment, or when the amount would fall outside certain limits that you set.

OUR LIABILITY FOR FAILURE TO STOP PREAUTHORIZED TRANSFER PAYMENTS. If you order us to stop one of the payments and have provided us with the information we need at least three (3) business days prior to the scheduled transfer, and we do not stop the transfer, we will be liable for your losses or damages.

YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO NOTIFY US OF LOSS OR THEFT. If you believe your ATM Card or Debit Card or PIN or internet banking access code has been lost or stolen,

  • call us at: 1-844-909-1621 or 1-844-266-2548 (8:00AM EST - 6:00PM EST)
  • or write to: 301 Sylvan Avenue Englewood Cliffs, NJ 07632

You should also call the number or write to the address listed above if you believe a transfer has been made using the information from your check without your permission.

CONSUMER LIABILITY. Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your ATM Card or Debit Card or PIN or internet banking access code has been lost or stolen or if you believe that an electronic fund transfer has been made without your permission using information from your check. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit, if applicable). If you tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your ATM Card or Debit Card or PIN or internet banking access code you can lose no more than fifty dollars ($50) if someone used your ATM Card or Debit Card or PIN or internet banking access code without your permission. If you do NOT tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your ATM Card or Debit Card or PIN or internet banking access code and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your ATM Card or Debit Card or PIN or internet banking access code without your permission if you had given us notice, you can lose as much as five hundred dollars ($500.00).

Also, if your statement shows transfers you did not make, including those made by card, code, or other means, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement was transmitted to you, you may not receive back any money you lost after the sixty (60) days, and therefore, you may not get back any money in your account (including your maximum overdraft line of credit, if applicable), if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money had you given us notice in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or hospital stay) keeps you from giving the notice, we will extend the time periods.

CONSUMER LIABILITY FOR UNAUTHORIZED TRANSACTIONS INVOLVING CONNECTONE BANK DEBIT CARD. The limitations on your liability for unauthorized transactions described above generally apply to all electronic fund transfers. However, different limitations apply to certain transactions involving your card with the Visa® logo. These limits apply to unauthorized transactions processed on the Visa® or Plus Network.

If you notify us about an unauthorized transaction involving your card with the Visa® logo and the unauthorized transaction took place on the Visa® or Plus Network, zero liability will be imposed on you for the unauthorized transaction. We may increase the limit of your liability for such unauthorized transactions to the amounts described under "Consumer Liability" above if we reasonably determine, based on substantial evidence, that you were negligent or fraudulent in the handling of your account or your card with the Visa® logo, you were proven to have participated in the transaction, or both. The zero liability provisions do not apply to PIN-based debit transactions not processed by the Visa® or Plus Network, including ATM transactions outside of the United States.

Your liability for unauthorized transactions with your card with the Visa® logo that involve PIN-based debit transactions not processed by the Visa® or Plus Network, including ATM transactions, are described under "Consumer Liability" above.

IN CASE OF ERRORS OR QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR TRANSACTIONS. In case of errors or questions about your electronic fund transfers,

  • call us at: 1-844-266-2548
  • or write to: 301 Sylvan Avenue Englewood Cliffs, NJ 07632
  • or use the current information on your most recent account statement.

Notification should be made as soon as possible if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transaction listed on the statement or receipt. You must contact ConnectOne Bank no later than 60 days after we sent you the first statement on which the problem or error appears. You must be prepared to provide the following information:

  • Your name and account number.
  • A description of the error or transaction you are unsure about along with an explanation as to why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.
  • The dollar amount of the suspected error.

If you provide oral notice, you will be required to send in your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) business days.

We will determine whether an error occurred within ten (10) business days (twenty (20) business days for new accounts) after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to forty-five (45) days (ninety (90) days for new accounts and foreign initiated or Point of Sale transfers) to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within ten (10) business days (twenty (20) business days for new accounts) for the amount which you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within ten (10) business days, we may not credit your account. The extended time periods for new accounts apply to all electronic fund transfers that occur within the first thirty (30) days after the first deposit to the account is made, including those for foreign initiated or Point of Sale transactions. Visa's® cardholder protection policy requires that we provide provisional credit for losses from unauthorized Visa® Check Card use within five (5) business days of notification of the loss, unless we determine that additional investigation is warranted and allowed by applicable laws or regulations.

We will tell you the results within three (3) business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.

LIABILITY FOR FAILURE TO COMPLETE TRANSACTION. If we do not complete a transfer to or from your account on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages as provided by law. However, there are some exceptions. We will NOT be liable, for instance:

  • If through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer.
  • If the transfer would result in your exceeding the credit limit on your line of credit, if you have one.
  • If the electronic terminal was not working properly and you knew about the breakdown before you started the transfer.
  • If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood, computer or machine breakdown, or failure or interruption of communications facilities) prevent the transfer, despite reasonable precautions we have taken.
  • If we have terminated our Agreement with you.
  • When your ATM Card or Debit Card has been reported lost or stolen or we have reason to believe that something is wrong with a transaction.
  • If we receive inaccurate or incomplete information needed to complete a transaction.
  • In the case of preauthorized transfers, we will not be liable where there is a breakdown of the system which would normally handle the transfer.
  • If the funds in the account are subject to legal action preventing a transfer to or from your account.
  • If the electronic terminal does not have enough cash to complete the transaction.

There may be other exceptions provided by applicable law.

CHARGES FOR TRANSFERS OR THE RIGHT TO MAKE TRANSFERS.

FEE SCHEDULE. The Fee Schedule referred to above is being provided separately and is incorporated into this document by reference. Additional copies of the schedule may be obtained from ConnectOne Bank upon request.

DISCLOSURE OF ACCOUNT INFORMATION.

We will disclose information to third parties about your account or electronic fund transfers made to your account:

  1. Where necessary to complete a transfer or to investigate and resolve errors involving the transfer(s); or
  2. In order to verify the existence and condition of your account for a third party such as a credit bureau or merchant; or
  3. In order to comply with government agency or court orders; or
  4. If you give us your permission in a record or writing.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR ATM TERMINAL USAGE. Please keep in mind the following basic safety tips whenever you use an ATM:

  • Have your ATM Card or Debit Card ready to use when you reach the ATM. Have all of your forms ready before you get to the machine. Keep some extra forms (envelopes) at home for this purpose.
  • If you are new to ATM usage, use machines close to or inside a financial institution until you become comfortable and can conduct your usage quickly.
  • If the ATM facility is equipped with a door, close the entry door before conducting your transaction.
  • If using an ATM in an isolated area, take someone else with you if possible. Have them watch from the car as you conduct your transaction.
  • Do not use ATMs at night unless the area and machine are well-lighted. If the lights are out, go to a different location.
  • If someone else is using the machine you want to use, stand back or stay in your car until the machine is free. Watch out for suspicious people lurking around ATMs, especially during the times that few people are around.
  • When using the machine, stand so you block anyone else's view from behind.
  • If anything suspicious occurs when you are using a machine, cancel what you are doing and leave immediately. If going to your car, lock your doors.
  • Do not stand at the ATM counting cash. Place withdrawn cash securely upon your person before exiting the ATM facility. Check that you received the right amount later in a secure place, and reconcile it to your receipt then.
  • Keep your receipts and verify transactions on your account statement. Report errors immediately. Do not leave receipts at an ATM location.
  • Direct complaints concerning ATM security to (844)266-2548 if we own or operate the ATM, or if we do not own or operate the ATM, to the institution operating the ATM at the telephone number found on or near the ATM, or the New Jersey Department of Banking at (609) 292-7272.

  • The acronym "NOW" means Negotiable Order of Withdrawal.
  • "Item" or "items," as defined by Article 4 of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), means an instrument or a promise or order to pay money handled by a financial institution for collection or payment. The term includes a check but does not include a payment order governed by Article 4A of the UCC or a credit or debit card slip.

Credits are generally added to your account and are made available to you in accordance with our funds availability schedule.

GENERAL AGREEMENT. You understand the following Account Agreement ("Agreement") governs your account with us. Your account is also governed by other applicable documents, such as the Truth In Savings Account Disclosure and Privacy Policy, and where applicable, the Funds Availability Policy and Electronic Fund Transfer (Agreement and) Disclosure ("Disclosures"), which are incorporated by reference. By providing a written or electronic signature on the Account Information document or other agreement to open your account, or by using any of our deposit account services, you and any identified account owners agree to the terms contained in this Account Agreement.

GENERAL RULES. The following rules apply to all types of accounts:

1. Deposits. Deposits may be made in person, by mail, or in another form and manner as agreed by us in our sole discretion. We are not responsible for transactions mailed until we actually receive and record them. We may, at our sole discretion, refuse to accept particular items as deposits. Cash deposits are credited to your account according to this Agreement. Other items you deposit are handled by us according to our usual collection practices. If an item you deposit is returned unpaid, we will debit your account and adjust any interest earned. You are liable to us for the amount of any item you deposit to your account that is returned unpaid. In addition, you are liable to us for all costs and expenses related to the collection of any or all of that amount from you. Funds deposited to your account are available in accordance with the Disclosures.

2. Collection of Deposited Items. In receiving items for deposit or collection, we act only as your agent and assume no responsibility beyond the exercise of ordinary care. All items are credited subject to final settlement in cash or credits. We shall have the right to forward items to correspondents including all Federal Reserve Banks, and we shall not be liable for default or neglect of said correspondents for loss in transit, nor shall any correspondent be liable except for its own negligence. You specifically authorize us or our correspondents to utilize Federal Reserve Banks to handle such items in accordance with provisions of Regulation J (12 CFR Part 210), as revised or amended from time to time by the Federal Reserve Board. In the event we are subject to local clearinghouse rules, you specifically authorize us to handle such items in accordance with the rules and regulations of the clearinghouse.

If we permit you to withdraw funds from your account before final settlement has been made for any deposited item, and final settlement is not made, we have the right to charge your account or obtain a refund from you. In addition, we may charge back any deposited item at any time before final settlement for whatever reason. We shall not be liable for any damages resulting from the exercise of these rights. Except as may be attributable to our lack of good faith or failure to exercise ordinary care, we will not be liable for dishonor resulting from any reversal of credit, return of deposited items or for any damages resulting from any of those actions.

3. Set-offs and Security Interest. If you ever owe us money as a borrower, guarantor, or otherwise, and it becomes due, we have the right under the law (called "set-off") and under this Agreement (by which you grant us security interest in your deposit account and any other accounts held by you) to use your account funds to pay the debt, where permitted by law. If your account is held jointly, that is, if there is more than one account owner, we may offset funds for the debt of any one of the joint owners. Similarly, we may also set-off funds from the individual accounts of any one of the joint owners to satisfy obligations or debts in the joint account. The security interest granted by this Agreement is consensual and is in addition to our right to set-off.

4. Claims. In response to any garnishment, attachment, restraining order, injunction, levy, citation to discover assets, judgment, reclamation, other order of court or other legal process ("Claim(s)"), we have the right to place a hold on, remove from your account(s) and/or remit to the designated third-party(ies) any amount on deposit in your account as set forth in and required by such Claim(s). If the account(s) is/are held jointly, we may place the hold, remove from the account(s) and/or remit the amounts from the account(s) arising from any Claim(s) relating to any one or more of the account holders. In addition, we may charge against your account(s) any fee authorized by law in connection with the Claim(s) or as otherwise set forth in the Disclosures.

5. Expenses. You agree to be liable to us for any loss, costs or expenses that we incur as a result of any dispute involving your account, including reasonable attorneys' fees to the extent permitted by law, and you authorize us to deduct such loss, costs or expenses from your account without prior notice to you.

6. Dormant/Inactive Accounts. You understand that if your account is dormant or inactive, you may be charged the fee specified in the Disclosures and we may stop paying interest to the extent permitted by law. You understand that your account balance may be escheated (that is, turned over to the state) in accordance with state law.

7. Release of Funds upon Death. Upon the death of any person named on the account, funds will be subject to the procedures set forth in New Jersey's estate tax statutes.

8. Multiple-Party Accounts. If your account is designated as a multiple-party account, trust account, or P.O.D. account, it will be subject to the provisions of the Multiple Party Deposit Account Act, N.J.S.A. 17:16I-1 et seq. (P.L. 1979, c.491). We will not have any liability for any payments made pursuant to the Act.

9. Joint Account. If this account is noted as a joint account, ownership of this account cannot be changed by will. Each party to this account has a present right to payment from this account. Each party owns his/her net contribution to the account. In the absence of proof of net contribution, and unless the parties have specifically otherwise agreed, each party will own an equal share of this account. We may make payment from this account, including payment of the entire account balance, (i) pursuant to any statutory or common law right of set off, levy, attachment or other valid legal process or court order, relating to the interest of any one or more of the parties; and (ii) on request to a trustee in bankruptcy, receiver in any state or Federal insolvency proceeding, or other duly authorized insolvency representative of any one or more of the parties. We are not required to determine net contributions. Any person named on the account is liable for the amount of any overdraft fees regardless of whether he or she signed the item or benefited from the proceeds of the item. Upon receiving written notice from any person named on the account, we may freeze the account. The account may be frozen until we receive written notice, signed by all parties named in the account, as to the disposition of funds.

10. Joint Account With/Without Right of Survivorship. If this account is noted as a joint account with right of survivorship, upon the death of a party to this account: (a) where there is only one surviving party, the entire account will belong to the survivor; (b) where there are two or more surviving parties each party will continue to own his/her proportionate share. The portion of the account owned by the deceased party will be shared equally by the survivors. If this account is noted as a joint account without right of survivorship, the death of any party to this account will have no effect on the beneficial ownership rights of the account, other than to transfer the rights of the decedent party to his or her estate. When there is only one surviving party, the survivor's share of the account, after the transfer of rights to the decedent party's(ies') estate, will then belong to the survivor alone. When there are two or more surviving parties, each surviving party will continue to own his or her proportionate share of the funds remaining in the account, after the transfer of rights to the decedent party's(ies') estate, and the account shall remain a joint account without a right of survivorship. For both types of accounts, we may require specific information from a party who makes a request that either further account withdrawals not be permitted, or that the survivorship form of the account be altered. In either circumstance, we will require that the request be in writing, include the current address of every other party affected, if known, be signed by a party, received by the financial institution during the party's lifetime, and not countermanded by other written order of the same party during his or her lifetime.

11. In Trust For or Payable on Death Account. If this account is noted as an In Trust For or Payable on Death account, the trustee(s) may change the named beneficiary(ies) at any time by a written direction to us. The trustee(s) reserves the right to withdraw all or part of the deposit at any time. Such payment or withdrawal shall constitute a revocation of the trust agreement as to the amount withdrawn. The beneficiary(ies) acquires the right to withdraw only if: (i) all of the trustees die, and (ii) the beneficiary is then living. The beneficiary(ies) is only entitled to the amount that is in the trust after all of the trustee's(s') outstanding debits and items have been paid. If all of the beneficiaries predecease the trustee(s), the named beneficiary's(ies') death shall terminate the trust and title to the money that is credited to the trust shall vest in the trustee(s). If two or more beneficiaries are named and survive the death of all of the trustees, such beneficiaries will own this account in equal shares without right of survivorship, unless otherwise indicated. If the primary beneficiary predeceases the owner(s), when two or more contingent beneficiaries are named and survive the death of the owner(s), such beneficiaries will own this account in equal shares without the right of survivorship, unless otherwise indicated. Named beneficiaries are assumed to be primary unless indicated as contingent.

12. Fiduciary and Custodial Accounts. A fiduciary or custodial account is subject to applicable law as adopted by the state in which the account is opened. The documents that authorize the custodianship may be required for the account. An account opened under the Uniform Transfers/Gifts to Minors Act must be opened in the name of a custodian "as custodian for (name of minor) under the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act". There may be only one custodian and one minor as beneficiary for each minor account.

13. Change in Form of Account. If this is a multiple-party account, you may only change the form of this account by a written notice or order given to us by a person named on the account which orders us to change the form of the account or to stop or vary payment under the terms of the account. The order or request must be signed by a person named on the account, received by us during that person's lifetime, and not countermanded by other written order of the same person during his or her lifetime. We may require that the person giving the notice provide us with a current address for every other party affected by the notice.

14. Authorized Signer (Agent) Designation. If you designate an agent, your named agent may make account transactions for you but has no ownership or rights at death unless named as a Payable on Death beneficiary or named as an In Trust For beneficiary, if applicable. If you have designated that the agent shall continue to have power after your disability or incapacity, the agent's authority survives your disability or incapacity. The agent may act for a disabled or incapacitated party until the authority of the agent is terminated. If you have noted that the agent shall not have power after your disability or incapacity, the agent's authority terminates upon your disability or incapacity. If you failed to specify whether or not the agent's authority survives or instead terminates upon your disability or incapacity, the authority will be presumed to survive your disability or incapacity. Death of the sole party or last surviving party terminates the authority of the agent. We may continue to rely on the agency designation to the extent permitted by law, until we have proper notice of an event of termination and have had a reasonable period of time to act upon it.

15. Power of Attorney. If you wish to name another person to act as your attorney in fact or agent in connection with your account, we must approve the form of appointment.

16. Fees, Service Charges and Balance Requirements. You agree you are responsible for any fees, charges, balance, or deposit requirements as stated in the Disclosures. We also reserve the right to impose a service charge for cashing checks and other items drawn on your account if the person cashing the check or item is not a customer of this financial institution.

17. Non-Sufficient Funds and Overdrafts. If your account lacks sufficient funds to pay a debit transaction or item presented for payment as determined by your available account balance or actual (ledger) balance, we may (1) return the debit or item or (2) pay the debit or item at our discretion.

Available Balance. We use an available balance method to determine if there are sufficient funds in your account to pay a debit transaction or item and to assess non-sufficient funds and overdraft fees.

How We Decide to Pay a Debit or Item. The available balance reflects deposits and transactions that have been posted to your account and transactions that have not posted to your account, including the following: checks you have written, if applicable; deposit holds; and holds on debit card transactions that have been authorized but not yet posted (i.e., preauthorization holds). These pending transactions and holds reduce your available balance. For example, you have $100 in your account and a pending transaction of $30. Your available balance is $70 because the pending $30 transaction reduces your available account balance.

How We Assess Fees. If there are insufficient funds to pay a debit transaction or item based on your available balance, we may either: 1) return the debit or item or 2) pay the debit or item at our discretion. We may charge you fees if we return the debit or item or pay the debit or item on your behalf.

Return Item for Non-Sufficient Funds. If we do not pay the debit or item on your behalf and return the debit or item, we may charge you non-sufficient funds fees. Pursuant to Nacha Operating Rules and Guidelines and other applicable laws, a debit or item may be presented for payment more than one time. We may charge you non-sufficient funds fees for each resubmission or re-presentation of a debit or item, which means you may incur multiple non-sufficient funds fees if a debit or item is returned more than one time. For example, you write a check from your account with us. The check is returned for non-sufficient funds, and we may charge you non-sufficient funds fees. The same check is then re-presented to us for payment, and the check is returned again for non-sufficient funds. We may charge you nonsufficient funds fees the second time the check is presented for payment and returned for non-sufficient funds.

Overdrafts. If we pay the debit or item on your behalf, you will be responsible for the overdrawn balance, and we may charge you overdraft fees. As discussed above, subsequent pending transactions and holds impact your available balance, which may cause your account to become overdrawn and subject to overdraft fees. For example, you have $100 in your account. You use your debit card at a gas station and a preauthorization hold of $60 is placed on your account because the amount of the transaction is not known at the time of authorization even though your gas was only $50. The authorization hold reduces your available account balance to $40. You then spend $50 on groceries. If we pay this debit on your behalf, you will be responsible for paying the overdrawn balance, and we may charge you overdraft fees.

Actual (Ledger) Balance. We use an actual (ledger) balance method to determine if there are sufficient funds in your account to pay a debit transaction or item and to assess non-sufficient funds and overdraft fees.

How We Decide to Pay a Debit or Item. The actual (ledger) balance method calculates your account balance only based on transactions that have settled, and it does not reflect pending transactions or checks, if applicable, that have not posted to your account. For example, you have $100 in your account and a pending transaction of $30. Your actual (ledger) balance is $100 because the pending $30 transaction does not reduce your actual (ledger) account balance until it posts to your account.

How We Assess Fees. If there are insufficient funds to pay a debit transaction or item based on your actual (ledger) balance, we may either: 1) return the debit or item or 2) pay the debit or item at our discretion. We may charge you fees if we return the debit or item or pay the debit or item on your behalf.

Return Item for Non-Sufficient Funds. If we do not pay the debit or item on your behalf and return the debit or item, we may charge you non-sufficient funds fees. Pursuant to Nacha Operating Rules and Guidelines and other applicable laws, a debit or item may be presented for payment more than one time. We may charge you non-sufficient funds fees for each resubmission or re-presentation of a debit or item, which means you may incur multiple non-sufficient funds fees if a debit or item is returned more than one time. For example, you write a check from your account with us. The check is returned for non-sufficient funds, and we may charge you non-sufficient funds fees. The same check is then re-presented to us for payment, and the check is returned again for non-sufficient funds. We may charge you nonsufficient funds fees the second time the check is presented for payment and returned for non-sufficient funds.

Overdrafts. If we pay the debit or item on your behalf, you will be responsible for the overdrawn balance, and we may charge you overdraft fees.

We use an available balance to determine if we pay a debit or item and we use an actual (ledger) balance to assess fees. If this is the case, the applicable rules described above will apply. If applicable, overdrafts may be covered by our standard overdraft practice that comes with your account or an overdraft protection plan, such as a link to an account or a line of credit. As part of our offered standard overdraft practice, we do not authorize and pay overdrafts on ATM or everyday debit card transactions unless you request us to do so. Please refer to the Overdraft Services Consent Form for more information about overdrafts and our standard overdraft policies, if applicable, and refer to your Truth In Savings disclosure for more information about our overdraft privilege policy.

18. Processing Order. We will process debit and credit transactions in accordance with our processing order policy. The processing order of these debits and credits is important because if your account balance has insufficient funds to pay for the debits and credits in the order that they are processed, we may charge you non-sufficient funds fees if we return the debit or charge you overdraft fees if we pay the debit on your behalf.

19. Amendments and Alterations. You agree that the terms and conditions governing your account may be amended by us from time to time. We will notify you of amendments as required by applicable law. Your continued use of the account evidences your agreement to any amendments. Notices will be sent to the most recent address shown on the account records. Only one notice will be given in the case of joint account holders.

20. Notices. You are responsible for notifying us of any address or name changes, the death of an account holder or other information affecting your account. Notices must be in a form and manner acceptable to us with enough information to allow us to identify the account. Notice sent by you to us is not effective until we have received it and have a reasonable opportunity to act on it. Written notice sent by us to you is effective when mailed to the last address supplied.

21. Certified Beneficial Owner Information. If you are obligated to certify beneficial owner information at the time the account is opened, you are responsible for notifying us of any changes to the certified beneficial ownership information that was provided to us. Notice should be made to us as soon as practical upon a change to the beneficial ownership information in a form and manner acceptable to us.

22. Unlawful Internet Gambling. Restricted transactions are prohibited from being processed through your account with us as required by the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 and Regulation GG. A restricted transaction is a transaction or transmittal involving any credit, funds, instrument, or proceeds in connection with the participation of another person in unlawful Internet gambling. You will notify us if your business practices regarding Internet gambling change in the future.

23. Telephone and Electronic Communication. You agree that we may call or send text messages to you at the telephone numbers that you provide to us, including a cell phone number, which may result in charges to you, for informational purposes regarding your account(s) with us. These calls and text messages may be made from an automatic telephone dialing system (i.e., an autodialer) or from an artificial or prerecorded voice message system. Additionally, you agree that we may send electronic communication to you at the email addresses you provide to us. You may contact us at any time if you no longer want to receive these communications from us. You also agree that we may monitor and record telephone and electronic communications that affect your account(s) with us to the extent permitted by law. We need not provide further notice to you or receive additional approval.

24. Online or Mobile Services. If you open an account or obtain a product or service from us using our online or mobile services, we may record your personal information from a scan or a copy of your driver's license or other personal identification card, or we may receive an image or make a copy of your driver's license or other personal identification card. We may store or retain this information to the extent permitted by law.

25. Closing Account. We may close the account at any time, with or without cause, after sending you notice if advance notice is required by law. If applicable, a notice may be sent to you that specifies when the account will be closed. At our discretion, we have the authority to pay an otherwise properly payable item, which is presented after the closing of your account. Such termination will not release you from any fees or other obligations incurred before the termination. We will send a check for the balance in our possession to which you are entitled.

26. Transfers and Assignments. You cannot assign or transfer any interest in your account unless we agree in writing.

27. Applicable Laws and Regulations. You understand that this Agreement is governed by the laws of the state of New Jersey, unless federal law controls. Changes in these laws may change the terms and conditions of your account. We will notify you of any changes as required by law. If any of the terms of this Agreement come into conflict with the applicable law and are declared to be invalid or unenforceable, those terms will be nullified to the extent that they are inconsistent with the law and the applicable law will govern. However, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions.

28. ACH and Wire Transfers. This Agreement is subject to Article 4A of the Uniform Commercial Code - Funds Transfers as adopted by the state in which the account is opened. If you send or receive a wire transfer, you agree that Fedwire® Funds Service may be used. Federal Reserve Board Regulation J is the law that covers transactions made over Fedwire® Funds Service. When you originate a funds transfer for which Fedwire® Funds Service is used, and you identify by name and number a beneficiary financial institution, an intermediary financial institution or a beneficiary, we and every receiving or beneficiary institution may rely on the identifying number to make payment.We may rely on the number even if it identifies a financial institution, person or account other than the one named. If you are a party to an Automated Clearing House ("ACH") entry, you agree that we may transmit an entry through the ACH, and you agree to be bound by the National Automated Clearing House Association ("Nacha") Operating Rules and Guidelines, the rules of any local ACH, and the rules of any other systems through which the entry is made.

Provisional Payment. Credit we give you is provisional until we receive final settlement for that entry. If we do not receive final settlement, you agree that we are entitled to a refund of the amount credited to you in connection with the entry, and the party making payment to you via such entry (i.e., the originator of the entry) shall not be deemed to have paid you in the amount of such entry.

Notice of Receipt. We will not provide you with notice of our receipt of the order, unless we are so requested by the transfer originator in the order. However, we will continue to notify you of the receipt of payments in the periodic statements we provide to you.

Choice of Law. We may accept on your behalf payments to your account which have been transmitted, that are not subject to the Electronic Fund Transfer Act, and your rights and obligations with respect to such payments shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the state where we are located.

International ACH Transactions. If your transaction originates from a financial agency that is outside of the territorial jurisdiction of the United States, it may be subject to additional review for compliance with the rules of the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). If additional review is required, the International ACH transaction will not be available to you until it passes final verification.

29. Stop Payments.

Stop Payments on Checks. If you request us to stop payment on a check you have written, you will give written or other confirmation as allowed by us within 14 days of making the request. If you fail to confirm an oral stop payment request within the 14 days, unless our policy provides otherwise, we reserve the right to cancel the request. Your stop payment request must describe the check or account with reasonable certainty and we must receive the request in a time and way that gives us a reasonable opportunity to act on it. A stop payment on a check you have written will remain in effect until the earlier of 1) six months or other time period not less than six months as specified in the Stop Payment Order, or 2) until we receive written revocation of the stop payment. If the check on which a Stop Payment Order has been placed has not yet cleared or been returned to you by the payee, you may renew the Stop Payment Order for an additional six months by providing a request to us in a record or writing within the time period the Stop Payment Order is in effect. Our acceptance of a stop payment request does not constitute a representation by us that the check has not already been paid or that we have had a reasonable opportunity to act on the request. We may accept a stop payment request on lost or stolen checks, whether a single check or series, unless our policy requires we open a new account for you to ensure your security. Written communication includes communication by electronic record.

Stop Payments on ACH Debits. A Stop Payment Order may be placed on either a one-time debit transfer or on a multiple debit entry transfer. If you request a Stop Payment Order on an Electronic Check Conversion or other one-time debit transfer, we must receive the request, orally or in a record or writing, in a period of time that provides us a reasonable opportunity to act on it prior to acting on the debit entry, otherwise the Stop Payment Order shall be of no effect. If you requested a stop payment on a multiple or future debit entry transfer, we must receive the Stop Payment Order, orally or in a record or writing, at least three business days before a scheduled debit entry. Requests to stop all future payments on an ACH debit transfer may require additional documentation to be supplied to us. Oral stop payment orders are binding on us for 14 calendar days only, unless our policy provides otherwise, and must be confirmed by you in a record or writing within that period. A Stop Payment Order on an ACH debit will remain in effect until the earlier of 1) your withdrawal of the Stop Payment Order, or 2) the return of the debit entry, or, where a Stop Payment Order is applied to more than one debit entry under a specific authorization involving a specific payee (Originator), the return of all such debits. When a stop is placed on a multiple or future debit entry transfer, we may require your confirmation in a record or writing stating that you have canceled your authorization for the transfer with the payee (a Stop Payment Order does not revoke authorization). Written communication includes communication by electronic record.

The Stop Payment Order shall be governed by the provisions of Article 4A of the Uniform Commercial Code as adopted by the state in which the account is opened, the Electronic Fund Transfer Act (Regulation E), Nacha Operating Rules, and any applicable state law. You may be charged a fee every time you request a Stop Payment Order and for each Stop Payment Order renewal you make. You understand that we may accept the stop payment request from any of the joint owners of the account regardless of who signed the check or authorized the transfer. A release of the Stop Payment Order may be made only by the person who initiated the stop payment request.

30. Checks. All negotiable paper ("checks") presented for deposit must be in a format that can be processed and we may refuse to accept any check that does not meet this requirement. All endorsements on the reverse side of any check deposited into your account, or on any check issued by you, must be placed on the left side of the check when looking at it from the front, and must be placed so as to not go beyond an area located 1-1/2 inches from the left edge of the check when looking at it from the front. It is your responsibility to ensure that this requirement is met. You are responsible for any loss incurred by us for failure of an endorsement to meet this requirement.

31. Electronic Checks and Electronically-Created Items. Pursuant to Regulation CC, electronic checks may be treated the same as paper checks for check collection and processing purposes. See the Substitute Checks section for more information. Electronically-created items ("ECI") are check-like items created in electronic form that never existed in paper form. For example, you set up automatic bill payments with us to pay your utility bill. From your account information, we create an ECI that is sent to your utility company for payment. An ECI cannot be used to create a substitute check since it never existed in paper form.

32. Substitute Checks. To make check processing faster, federal law permits financial institutions to replace original checks with "substitute checks." These checks are similar in size to original checks with a slightly reduced image of the front and back of the original check. The front of a substitute check states: "This is a legal copy of your check. You can use it the same way you would use the original check." You may use a substitute check as proof of payment just like the original check. Some or all of the checks that you receive back from us may be substitute check(s). An electronic check can be used to create a substitute check since the electronic image and electronic information was derived from its paper form.

33. Remote Deposit Capture. Remote deposit capture ("RDC") allows you to make deposits to your account from remote locations by electronically transmitting digital images of your original paper checks, which are drawn on or payable through United States financial institutions in United States dollars to us. We may then use the digital image to create an electronic check or substitute check for collection. If you use our RDC services, if applicable, we may require you to endorse the back of the paper check to indicate that it has been remotely deposited. For example, "for mobile deposit only."

34. Preauthorized Checks or Drafts. You should guard information about your account (such as your routing number and your account number) as carefully as you would guard blank checks. If you voluntarily give such information about your account to a party which is seeking to sell you goods or services, without physically delivering a check to it, any debit to or withdrawal from your account it initiates will be deemed authorized by you.

35. Stale or Postdated Checks. We reserve the right to pay or dishonor a check more than 6 months old without prior notice to you. If you can write checks on your account, you agree not to postdate any check drawn on the account. If you do and the check is presented for payment before the date of the check, we may pay it or return it unpaid. We are not liable for paying any stale or postdated check. Any damages you incur that we may be liable for are limited to actual damages not to exceed the amount of the check.

36. Verifying Funds Availability for Check. You authorize us to release funds availability information about your account to individuals or merchants who represent to us that they have received a check or other item from you.

37. Check Safekeeping. If you can write checks on your account and utilize check safekeeping or any other system offered by us for the retention of your checks, you understand that the canceled checks will be retained by us and destroyed after a reasonable time period or as required by law. If for any reason we cannot provide you with a copy of a check, our liability will be limited to the lesser of the face amount of the check or the actual damages sustained by you. When you request a copy of a check it may be subject to a fee as defined in the Disclosures.

38. Remotely Created Checks. A remotely created check, as defined in Regulation CC, means a check that is not created by the paying bank and that does not bear a signature applied, or purported to be applied, by the person on whose account the check is drawn. By having a deposit account with us, you certify that all remotely created checks deposited to your account(s) will be expressly and verifiably authorized by the payor. And we reserve the rights to refuse for deposit any such remotely created check if we have any reason to believe that the item is fraudulent in any manner, and to obtain from you the payor's express, verifiable authorization for any such check.

39. Statements. If your account is a Checking, NOW, Money Market, or Statement Savings account, we will provide you with a periodic statement showing the account activity. The last address you supply us in writing will be deemed the proper address for mailing this statement to you. The account holder who receives this statement is the agent for his/her co-account holder(s) for purposes of receiving the statement and items. You must exercise reasonable care in reviewing your statement and reasonable promptness in notifying us of any discrepancies, such as alterations or forged or unauthorized signatures, even if by the same wrongdoer. You must notify us within 30 days after we mail or otherwise make the statement available to you of any discrepancies, except for transfers governed by the Wire Transfer Agreement. If you fail to notify us with reasonable promptness, you will have no claim against us to the extent permitted by law. Additionally, you agree that we will not be liable for discrepancies reported to us after one year after we mail or otherwise make the statement or items available to you, even if we failed to exercise reasonable care. However, if the discrepancy is the result of an electronic fund transfer, the provisions of our Disclosures will control its resolution. If you do not receive a statement from us because you have failed to claim it, or have supplied us with an incorrect address, we may stop sending your statements until you specifically make written request that we resume sending your statements and you supply us with a proper address.

40. Electronic Statements and Notices. You may have the option to have statements and notices regarding this account provided to you in an electronic form, including to a designated e-mail address, through an online banking portal, or other electronic method, upon your authorization. The authorization may be withdrawn at any time to return to a mailed paper form by providing written notice to us at the address provided. The fees for receiving in either form, and for receiving paper copies, are described in your Disclosures. In order to receive your account information in an electronic form, the receiving system may have to meet specific requirements. We will keep you informed of any change to the minimum hardware or software requirements.

41. Signatures. Your signature on the Account Information form is your authorized signature. You authorize us, at any time, to charge you for all checks, drafts, orders, or other items for the payment of money, that are drawn on us regardless of by whom or by what means (including facsimile signature(s)) may have been affixed so long as they resemble the signature specimen in our files. For withdrawal and for other purposes relating to any account you have with us, we are authorized to recognize your signature; and we will not be liable to you for refusing to honor signed instruments or instructions if we believe in good faith that one or more of the signatures appearing on the instrument or instruction is not genuine. If your items are signed using any facsimile signature or non-manual form of signature, you acknowledge that it is solely for your benefit and convenience. You agree that no facsimile signature you have authorized us to honor may be considered a forgery or an unauthorized signature, and that every authorized facsimile signature shall be effective as the signatory's own original, manual signature. You accept sole responsibility for maintaining security over any device affixing the signature as such signature will be effective regardless of whether the person affixing it was authorized to do so. Your authorization notwithstanding, we are not obligated to accept or pay any items bearing facsimile signatures. Further, most checks, drafts, orders, or other items are processed automatically, i.e., without individual review of each item. Therefore, unless we agree in a separate writing, in our sole discretion, upon your request and due to unique circumstances to conduct individual review of checks, drafts, orders, or other items for more than one signer, you agree that we are acting within common and reasonable banking practices by automatically processing these items. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold us harmless from and against all loss, costs, damage, liability, and other injury (including reasonable attorney fees) that you or we may suffer or incur as a result of this practice.

42. Restrictive Legends. We are not required to honor any restrictive legend on checks you write unless we have agreed to the restriction in a writing signed by an officer of the financial institution. Examples of restrictive legends are "two signatures required", "must be presented within 90 days" or "not valid for more than $1,000.00."

43. Our Waiver of Rights. You understand and agree that no delay or failure on our part to exercise any right, remedy, power or privilege available to us under this Agreement shall affect or preclude our future exercise of that right, remedy, power or privilege.

44. Your Waiver of Notice. By signing the signature card/Account Information form, you waive any notice of non-payment, dishonor or protest regarding any items credited to or charged against your deposit account to the extent permitted by law. For example, if a check that you deposited is dishonored and returned to us, we are not required to notify you of the dishonor.

45. Death or Incompetency. Neither your death nor a legal adjudication of incompetence revokes our authority to accept, pay, or collect items until we know of the fact of death or of an adjudication of incompetence and have a reasonable opportunity to act on it. To the extent permitted by law, even with knowledge, we may for 10 days after the date of death, pay checks drawn on or before the date of death unless ordered to stop payment by a person claiming an interest in the account.

ACCOUNT SPECIFIC PROVISIONS. In addition to the General Rules, the following rules apply to specific types of accounts:

CHECKING AND NOW ACCOUNTS

Checking Accounts. If your account is a checking account, it will be either non-interest bearing or interest bearing as defined in the Truth in Savings Disclosure.

Withdrawals. Deposits will be available for withdrawal consistent with the terms of our Disclosures. Withdrawals may be subject to a service charge.

Withdrawal Notice Requirements. If your account is a NOW account or a non-demand deposit checking account, we have the right to require seven (7) days prior written notice from you of your intent to withdraw any funds from your account.

MONEY MARKET AND SAVINGS ACCOUNTS

Withdrawals. We have the right to require seven (7) days prior written notice from you of your intent to withdraw any funds from your account. Withdrawals may be subject to a service charge.

Transaction Limitations. Our policy allows us to restrict the number of transfers or withdrawals you can make on a Money Market Account and Savings Account, or we may allow you to make an unlimited number of transfers or withdrawals from these accounts.

Restrictions on Money Market and Savings Accounts. If we restrict the number of transfers or withdrawals you can make on these accounts, you understand that we will not allow more transfers or withdrawals than the maximum number specified in the Disclosures, and we may close your account, take away your ability to transfer funds, charge you a fee, or convert the account to a checking or other transaction account if the restriction is violated.

No Restrictions on Money Market and Savings Accounts. If we do not restrict the number of transfers or withdrawals you can make on these accounts, your account may still be subject to other transaction limitations. Please refer to the Disclosures to understand which transaction limitations, if any, apply to your account.

SAVINGS ACCOUNTS

Passbooks. If your account is a passbook account and you wish to make a withdrawal without your passbook, we can refuse to allow the withdrawal. If your passbook is lost or stolen, you will immediately notify us in writing.

CERTIFICATES OF DEPOSIT/TIME DEPOSIT ACCOUNTS

Account Terms. The Certificate bears interest at the rate and basis as set forth on the Certificate. The terms of the Certificate, such as the interest rate(s), Annual Percentage Yield ("APY"), length of term period, renewability, and date of maturity are specified on the Certificate and in the Disclosures provided to you at the time of account opening. Interest will not be compounded unless noted and will be paid to you at the frequency and in the method noted. If interest compounds during the term of the Certificate and may be withdrawn prior to maturity, the withdrawal of interest prior to maturity will affect the APY.

Withdrawal Prior To Maturity. You have contracted to keep the account funds on deposit from the issue date until the maturity date. We may accept a request by you for withdrawal of some or all of the account funds prior to the maturity date at our discretion or as otherwise described in the Disclosures.

Additional Deposits During The Term. No additional deposits will be allowed to this account during its term unless otherwise described in the Disclosures.

Early Withdrawal Penalty. Unless provided otherwise in the Disclosures, we will assess an early withdrawal penalty on any withdrawal, either partial or in whole, that we allow you to make from your account prior to the account's maturity date. The method for determining that penalty is described in the Disclosures.

Renewal. Automatic Renewal Certificates will renew automatically on the stated maturity date of its term. Such renewal will be for a time period equal or similar to the original term and subject to these terms and conditions. Interest for that renewal term will be paid at the interest rate then in effect at this financial institution for similar accounts. If you close the Certificate within the grace period following the maturity date, we will not charge an early withdrawal penalty for that withdrawal. The grace period following a maturity date is described in the Disclosures.

Single Maturity. Single Maturity Certificates will not automatically renew at maturity. The Disclosures describe our policy concerning the account's status following the maturity date. To ensure a continuation of interest earning, you must arrange for a new investment of the account balance.
