Please refer to your Disclosures for any non-sufficient funds fee or other fee(s) that may be assessed. We are under no obligation to you when we have been unable to complete a transfer request due to insufficient or unavailable funds, or due to other circumstances  out of our control,  such as a system or power failure. If we are consistently unable  to complete the requested transfer due to insufficient funds in the designated debit Account, then we reserve the right to cancel the transfer request and to review your Online Services privileges. If you have opted in to overdraft services, please refer to your account  opening  Disclosures  for any overdraft services policies related to funding your accounts and any overdraft fees.

EFFECTIVE TIMING OF TRANSACTIONS. Online  Services  are available at any time or day, unless the system is undergoing maintenance. The posting of Online Services transactions  before 2:00pm daily on a Business Day will post the same day and will be included in the available funds for the receiving Account. Transfers requested  after 2:00pm daily on a Business Day or requested on a non-Business Day will post on the following Business Day to the receiving Account and will be considered available funds on that day.

CANCELING A TRANSFER. A one-time transfer is immediate and cannot be canceled. The deadline for canceling a recurring transfer request is 2:00pm dailey. If you have any questions or problems canceling the transfer, please contact us.

COST OF SERVICE. Account transaction fees as stated in any Disclosures and Fee Schedule provided to you remain in effect and are not eliminated or changed with the use of Online Services. You have sole responsibility for any service  fees you incur from your telephone, internet, or wireless service providers.

REMOTE DEPOSIT CAPTURE ("RDC").  RDC services  allow 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 this Check Image to create an Electronic Check or Substitute Check for collection. The Check Clearing for the 21st Century Act and Regulation CC govern the use of RDC services and have enabled financial institutions to accept Substitute Checks, which are the legal equivalent to Original Checks for all purposes.

RDC FEES AND CHARGES. Any and all fees and charges associated with your Accounts remain in effect when accessing and using RDC services. You understand that standard data charges and messaging rates imposed by your  wireless  service provider may apply and that these rates and charges are your sole responsibility. Please contact your service provider for additional information.

ELIGIBILITY OF ITEMS. You may only submit Items for deposit that are within the dollar  limits  established  for you. We reserve the right to limit the dollar amount and frequency of deposits made through RDC services  by you, and we may raise or lower your dollar limit in the future at our sole discretion at any time. You agree that we are not obligated to accept  any Check Image that we determine to be ineligible and you agree to deposit only Checks as defined by section 1.8 in the DEFINITIONS section of this Agreement. You acknowledge that ineligible Items include, but are not limited to, the following: ACH payments or wire transfers, Items drawn on banks located outside of the United States, cash, illegible Items, incomplete Items, Items which are altered in any way, any Check that has previously been converted to a Substitute Check, any Item that contains indecipherable magnetic ink character recognition ("MICR") data, any Check originally made payable to a party other than you and any stale or post-dated Items.

PROCESSING REQUIREMENTS. You agree you will not alter any Original Check or Check Image  under any circumstance and you warrant that all Original Checks are authorized for the amount stated  on the Check by the person  who created the Check. At the time of presentment to you by drawer, any Checks that you initiate for deposit  must  contain  all necessary information on the front and back of the Check, including all endorsements, the identity of the drawer and paying bank that is preprinted on the Check, and the image quality must be in compliance with the minimum requirements established by the American National Standards Institute ("ANSI").  Determination  of image quality compliance  is in our sole discretion  and any Check may be rejected if it does not meet this criteria. You also agree that all Check Images you submit  for deposit  through  RDC services  will not contain any viruses or other potentially harmful attributes.

ACCEPTANCE OF ITEMS. We are not responsible for any Items which we do not receive.  Items received  will each be reviewed for acceptability and any accepted Item will be converted into a Substitute Check. You agree that electronic  conveyance  of a Check does not equate to receipt of the Check. You agree that a notice confirming receipt of your deposit does not mean the Item is error-free or that it will not be rejected upon further review. If we do reject an Item for any reason, we will provide  you with a notice of rejection; however, we will  not be liable for loss suffered as a result of the rejected Item. We will also provide you with a notice if your deposited Item is dishonored, in which case you permit us to debit such amount from your account. You may confirm receipt of all deposited Items by viewing your account statements or by contacting us.

RETENTION AND DISPOSAL OF CHECKS. You agree to securely preserve and protect each Original  Check for a period of 60 Days days and during this period you agree to provide any Original Check to us upon request. Once you have obtained confirmation from us that we have received an Item, you agree to indicate its presentment via electronic means directly on the Original Check. You agree you will not deposit or submit any Original Check which you have already submitted or deposited electronically into an account you own with us or at any other  financial  institution.  At the expiration of the 60 Days day period, you will destroy each Original Check in its entirety to ensure it is not presented  for payment again. You understand that any misuse of a Check Image after presentment to us is your responsibility and you will be solely liable for any resulting loss.
