        • There is a Multi-Currency Conversion Rate on all “Cross-border” Transactions for Mastercard, Maestro or Cirrus Branded Debit Cards. If you initiate a transaction with your Card in a currency other than US Dollars, Mastercard will convert the charge into a US Dollar amount. The Mastercard currency conversion procedure is based on rates observed in the wholesale market or, where applicable, on government-mandated rates.  The currency conversion rate Mastercard generally uses is the rate for the applicable currency that is in effect on the day the transaction occurred.  However, in limited situations, particularly where Mastercard transaction processing is being delayed, Mastercard may instead use the rate for the applicable currency in effect on the day the transaction is processed.  The assessment for such transactions is 1.55%.  The breakdown in the conversion percent is charged to your account is: 0.20% will be included in the total transaction amount which will be debited from your account and 1.35% will be charged separately by Grinnell State Bank for cross-border transactions/currency conversions and reflected on your account statement.  A cross-border transaction is a transaction processed through the Global Clearing Management System or the Mastercard Debit Switch in which the country of the merchant is different that the country of the cardholder.

14. Bill Payment and Transfer Limitations

You may use the Service to check the balance of your eligible account(s) and to transfer funds among your eligible accounts at GSB.  However, current federal regulations restrict the number of transactions that you can make from certain types of accounts, such as money market and savings accounts.  For these types of accounts, no more than six (6) transfers and withdraws, or a combination of such transfers and withdraws, per calendar month or statement cycle (or similar period) of at least 4 weeks, to another account (including a transaction account) of the depositor at the same institution or to a third party by means of a preauthorized or automatic transfer, or telephonic (including data transmission) agreement, order or instruction, or by check, draft, debit card, or similar order made by the depositor and payable to third parties will be allowed.  Transfers and bill payments authorized by personal computer through the Service are counted toward the six (6) permitted monthly transfers.  Federal regulations currently place no limits on the number of transfers or bill payments from your checking, therefore this financial institution currently limits the bill pay service to only checking.

If a hold has been placed on deposits made to an account from which you wish to transfer funds, you cannot transfer the portion of funds held until the hold expires.

 

15. Bill Pay Service

Bill pay is an optional service which is available upon enrollment in online banking. Once you have enrolled in online banking, click on the “Bill Payment” tab to complete the enrollment process for the bill payment service.  In order to have access to the service:

–       You must have an eligible account with Grinnell State Bank.

–       Only a checking account may be eligible for bill pay service privileges.

–       You must be a resident of the United States or its territories.

–       Payments to Billers outside the United States or its territories are prohibited through the Service.

When using the service, you agree to maintain one or more eligible accounts with us and to keep sufficient balances in any account to cover any transaction and fees that are ultimately approved by or related to the service.  Access to this service is subject to bank approval. For additional terms and conditions for this service please refer to the “GSB Bill Pay Terms”.

 

16. Overdrafts (Order of Payments, Transfers, and Other Withdrawals)

If your account has insufficient funds to perform all electronic fund transfers you have requested for a given business day, then:

Electronic funds transfers involving currency disbursements, like ATM withdrawals, will have priority.

Electronic fund transfers initiated through online banking which would result in an overdraft of your account may, at our discretion, be canceled.

In the event the electronic funds transfers initiated through online banking which would result in an overdraft of your account are not canceled, overdraft charges may be assessed pursuant to the terms of the deposit agreement for that account.

You agree to pay such charges and authorize us to deduct the calculated amount from your designated billing account for these amounts and any additional charges that may be incurred by you.  Other fees and penalties associated with your standard deposit accounts will continue to apply.

17. Disclosure of Account Information and Transfers

You understand information about your accounts or the transfers you make may automatically be disclosed to others. For example, tax laws require disclosure to the government of the amount of interest you earn, and some transactions, such as large currency and foreign transactions, must be reported to the government. In addition, we routinely inform OnBoard Advisor, (a background screening company) when accounts are closed because they were not handled properly. We may also seek information about you from others, such as the credit bureau, in connection with the opening or maintaining of your account or in connection with approving your access to online banking. You agree and hereby authorize all of these transfers of information.

 

18. Periodic Statements

You will not receive a separate bank statement. Transfers to and from your accounts using online banking will appear on the respective periodic paper statements for your Bank accounts and mailed directly to you.  You may elect to discontinue receiving your account statement in paper form by contacting the bank and signing an “Internet Banking Monthly Statement Viewing Service and Cancellation of Monthly Paper Statement Agreement”. Grinnell State Bank reserves the right to change the method in which your monthly account statements are delivered to you. Any change will be communicated to you in advance.

 

19. Change in Terms

We may change any term of this Agreement at any time. If the change would result in increased fees for any online banking service, increased liability for you, fewer types of available electronic funds transfers, or stricter limitations on the frequency or dollar amount of transfers, we agree to give you notice at least thirty (30) days before the effective date of any such change, unless an immediate change is necessary to maintain the security of an account or our electronic funds transfer system. We will post any required notice of the change in terms on the Bank website or forward it to you by e-mail or by postal mail, in accordance with regulatory disclosure requirements. Your continued use of any or all of the subject online banking services indicates your acceptance of the change in terms. We reserve the right to waive, reduce or reverse charges or fees in individual situations. You acknowledge and agree that changes to fees applicable to specific accounts are governed by the applicable deposit agreements and disclosures.

    • Account Alerts provide you with notification of important account activities or when certain changes are made to your Service accounts, such as scheduled payments made, scheduled payments cancelled and mobile deposits. These Alerts are automatically activated for you. Although you may suppress these account Alerts, we strongly recommend that you do not do so because they provide important information related to your service accounts.
    • Additional Alerts must be activated by you to be enabled. These additional Alerts can be accessed from the Grinnell State Bank Alert menu within Grinnell State Bank Online Banking and Grinnell State Bank Alert menu within Grinnell State Bank Mobile Banking.

However, notwithstanding that we have engaged such a Service Provider to render some or all of the Account-to-Account Transfer Service to you, we are the sole party liable to you for any payments or transfers conducted using the Account-to-Account Transfer Service and we are solely responsible to you and any third party to the extent any liability attaches in connection with the Account-to-Account Transfer Service. You agree that we have the right under this Agreement to delegate to Service Providers all of the rights and performance obligations that we have under this Agreement, and that the Service Providers will be third party beneficiaries of this Agreement and will be entitled to all the rights and protections that this Agreement provides to us.

 

5. Authorization and Processing

You represent and warrant that you are either the sole owner or a joint owner of the Eligible Transaction Account and the External Account and that you have all necessary legal right, power, and authority to transfer funds between the Eligible Transaction Account and the External Account. If you are a joint owner of the Eligible Transaction Account, External Account, or both, then you represent and warrant that (i) you have been authorized by all of the other joint owners to operate such Accounts without their consent (including without limitation to withdraw or deposit any amount of funds to such Accounts or to even withdraw all funds from such Accounts); and (ii) we may act on your instructions regarding such Accounts without liability to such other joint owners. Further, you represent and warrant that the External Account is located in the United States.

    • The transfer is refused as described in Section 12 (Refused Transfers) below;

It is your responsibility to ensure the accuracy of any information that you enter into the Account-to-Account Transfer Service, and for informing us as soon as possible if you become aware that this information is inaccurate.

10. Stop Transfer Requests

If you desire to stop any transfer that has already been processed, you must contact our customer service department pursuant to the earlier section Electronic Funds Transfers: your rights and responsibilities.

11. Account to Account Transfer Service Fees and Additional Charges

You are responsible for paying all fees associated with your use of the Account-to-Account Transfer Service.   Applicable transaction fees and other optional services (such as Next-Day transfers) will be disclosed in the user interface within the Account-to Account Transfer Service or Site or refer to the Grinnell State Bank Miscellaneous Services fee brochure. Additional transaction charges may apply to the funds transfer under the following instances: 1) A funds transfer is returned by the financial institution of the external account for any reason, an ACH Return Item Fee may apply to each transfer returned. 2) A request to debit your account with Grinnell State Bank results in an overdraft to that GSB account, a Paid or Return Item Charge for the overdraft may apply to each transfer transaction which would create an overdraft or results in an overdraft to your Eligible GSB account.  Refer to the Grinnell State Bank Miscellaneous Services fee brochure. You agree to pay such charges and authorize us to deduct the calculated amount from the applicable Eligible Transaction Account you hold with us or the Account that is debited for the funds transfer, depending on how such charges are described in the user interface for the Account-to-Account Transfer Service. Any financial fees associated with your standard deposit accounts will continue to apply. Refer to the Truth & Savings disclosure for your account, provided to you at account opening and our Miscellaneous Services fee brochure. You are responsible for any and all telephone access fees and Internet service fees that may be assessed by your telephone and Internet service provider. Section 24 (Failed Or Returned Transfer Instructions) applies if you do not pay our fees and charges for the Account to Account Transfer Service, including without limitation if we debit the External Account for such fees, as described in this Section, and there are insufficient fees in the External Account; Section 24 (Failed Or Returned Transfer Instructions) should be interpreted as applying to the External Account, not just the Eligible Transaction Account, in such circumstances.

 

12. Refused Transfers

We reserve the right to refuse any transfer. As required by applicable law, we will notify you promptly if we decide to refuse to transfer funds.

 

13. Returned Transfers

In using the Account-to-Account Transfer Service, you understand transfers may be returned for various reasons such as, but not limited to, the External Account number is not valid.

22. Reg E Disclosures (Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfers)

The EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) Act, most commonly known as Regulation E, provides consumers with certain rights and responsibilities with respect to EFTs initiated through our internet banking service.  Please read the following EFT disclosures carefully. Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your User ID or password has been lost or stolen.  Telephoning us is the best way to keep your possible losses down.  You could lose all the money in your account.  If you tell us within two (2) business days, you can lose no more than $50.  If you do NOT tell us within 2 days after you learn of the loss or theft of your User ID or password, and we can prove that we could have stopped someone from using your login credentials had you told us, you could lose as much as $500.00.  Also, if your statement (or for a prepaid account where no statement is sent, if your electronic history or written history) shows transfers that you did not make, including those made by card, code, or other means, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within 60 days after the statement was transmitted to you (or for a prepaid account where no statement is sent, 60 days after the earlier of the date you electronically access your account, if the error could be viewed in your electronic history, or the date we sent the FIRST written history on which the error appeared), you may not get back any money you lost after the 60 days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we may in our sole discretion extend the period.

 

23. Taxes

It is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to the transactions you make or receive, and it is your responsibility to collect, report and remit the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority. We are not responsible for determining whether taxes apply to your transaction, or for collecting, reporting, or remitting any taxes arising from any transaction.

 

24. Failed or Returned Transfer Instructions

In using the Account-to-Account Transfer Service, you are requesting that we or our Service Provider attempt to make transfers for you from your Eligible Transaction Account. If the Transfer Instruction cannot be completed for any reason associated with your Eligible Transaction Account (for example, there are insufficient funds in your Eligible Transaction Account, or the Transfer Instruction would exceed the overdraft line of credit limit or overdraft protection limit of your Eligible Transaction Account, to cover the transfer, if applicable), the Transfer Instruction may or may not be completed. In certain circumstances, our Service Provider may either advance funds drawn on their corporate account or via an electronic debit, and in such circumstances will attempt to debit the Eligible Transaction Account a second time to complete the Transfer Instruction. In some instances, you will receive a return notice from us or our Service Provider. In each such case, you agree that:

You will reimburse our Service Provider immediately upon demand the amount of the Transfer Instruction if the transfer has been delivered but there are insufficient funds in, or insufficient overdraft credits associated with, your Eligible Transaction Account to allow the debit processing to be completed;

You may be assessed a late fee equal to one and a half percent (1.5%) of any unpaid amounts plus costs of collection by our Service Provider or their third-party contractor if the Transfer Instruction cannot be debited because you have insufficient funds in your Eligible Transaction Account, or the transaction would exceed the  overdraft line of credit limit of your Eligible Transaction Account, to cover the transfer, or if the funds cannot otherwise be collected from you. The aforesaid amounts will be charged in addition to any Paid or Return Item (overdraft) charges that may be assessed by us, as set forth in your Miscellaneous Services fee brochure from us or your account agreement with us. You hereby authorize us and our Service Provider to deduct all of these amounts from your designated Eligible Transaction Account, including by ACH debit.

Service Provider is authorized to report the facts concerning the return to any credit reporting agency.

 

25. Address or Banking Changes

It is your sole responsibility, and you agree to ensure that the contact information in your user profile is current and accurate. This includes, but is not limited to, name, physical address, phone numbers and email addresses. If you need to make changes to your customer profile for anything listed above, you can do so by calling our customer service Department at 800-236-3187 or stopping in any one of our branches. We are not responsible for any payment processing errors or fees incurred if you do not provide an accurate Eligible Transaction Account, Transfer Instructions or contact information.

 

26. Information Authorization

Your enrollment in the applicable Account-to-Account Transfer Service may not be fulfilled if we cannot verify your identity or other necessary information.

    1. Mobile Subscriber Information. You authorize your wireless carrier to disclose information about your account, such as subscriber status, payment method and device details, if available, to support identity verification, fraud avoidance and other uses in support of transactions for the duration of your business relationship with us. This information may also be shared with other companies to support your transactions with us and for identity verification and fraud avoidance purposes.
    2. Device Data. We may share certain personal information and device-identifying technical data about you and your devices with third party service providers, who will compare and add device data and fraud data from and about you to a database of similar device and fraud information in order to provide fraud management and prevention services, which include but are not limited to identifying and blocking access to the applicable service or Web site by devices associated with fraudulent or abusive activity.

Unless expressly stated otherwise, all other terms of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect. Unless our account agreement with you states otherwise, you agree that any claim or dispute you may have against us (other than those which are arbitrated under Section 35 (Arbitration) above) must be resolved by a court located in the county in which you reside.

In addition, if applicable to you, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which states that a general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if not known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.

 

39. No Waiver

We shall not be deemed to have waived any rights or remedies hereunder unless such waiver is in writing and signed by one of our authorized representatives. No delay or omission on our part in exercising any rights or remedies shall operate as a waiver of such rights or remedies or any other rights or remedies.
