When you use your debit card with the Visa® logo at a merchant that settles in currency other than US Dollars, the charge will be converted into the US dollar amount. The currency conversion rate used to determine the transaction amount in US dollars is a rate selected by Visa® from a range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which rate may vary from the rate Visa® itself received, or the government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date, in each instance, plus or minus any adjustment determined by the issuer. The conversion rate in effect on the processing date may differ from the rate in effect on the transaction date or the posting date.
Besides being able to use your Visa® debit card at our ConnectOne Bank ATM terminals, you may access your accounts through the following network(s): Visa, Plus, Interlink, NYCE & Allpoint.
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.
Certain limitations apply to certain transactions involving your debit 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 debit 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 debit 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 debit 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 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.
