Important Information About Procedures for Opening a New Account To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.

What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. También podríamos solicitarte tu licencia de conducir u otros documentos de identificación.

AGREEMENT - This document, along with any other documents we give you pertaining to your account(s), is a contract that establishes rules which control your account(s) with us. Please read this carefully and retain it for future reference. If you sign the signature card or open or continue to use the account, you agree to these rules. You will receive a separate schedule of rates, qualifying balances, and fees if they are not included in this document. If you have any questions, please call us.

This agreement is subject to applicable federal laws, the laws of the state of Colorado and other applicable rules such as the operating letters of the Federal Reserve Banks and payment processing system rules (except to the extent that this agreement can and does vary such rules or laws). The body of state and federal law that governs our relationship with you, however, is too large and complex to be reproduced here. The purpose of this document is to:

  1. summarize some laws that apply to common transactions;
  2. establish rules to cover transactions or events which the law does not regulate;
  3. establish rules for certain transactions or events which the law regulates but permits variation by agreement; and
  4. give you disclosures of some of our policies to which you may be entitled or in which you may be interested.

If any provision of this document is found to be unenforceable according to its terms, all remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect. We may permit some variations from our standard agreement, but we must agree to any variation in writing either on the signature card for your account or in some other document. Nothing in this document is intended to vary our duty to act in good faith and with ordinary care when required by law.

As used in this document the words "we," "our," and "us" mean the financial institution and the words "you" and "your" mean the account holder(s) and anyone else with the authority to deposit, withdraw, or exercise control over the funds in the account. The headings in this document are for convenience or reference only and will not govern the interpretation of the provisions. Unless it would be inconsistent to do so, words and phrases used in this document should be construed so the singular includes the plural and the plural includes the singular.

COPY OF THIS AGREEMENT - You acknowledge and agree that we may destroy this original account agreement once the agreement has been electronically archived. A copy of this agreement maintained in our record-keeping system may be used for any purpose and shall be legally binding to the same extent as the original.

LIABILITY - You agree, for yourself (and the person or entity you represent if you sign as a representative of another) to the terms of this account and the schedule of charges. You authorize us to deduct these charges, without notice to you, directly from the account balance as accrued. You will pay any additional reasonable charges for services you request which are not covered by this agreement.

Each of you also agrees to be jointly and severally (individually) liable for any account shortage resulting from charges or overdrafts, whether caused by you or another with access to this account. This liability is due immediately, and we can deduct any amounts deposited into the account and apply those amounts to the shortage. You have no right to defer payment of this liability, and you are liable regardless of whether you signed the item or benefited from the charge or overdraft.

You will be liable for our costs as well as for our reasonable attorneys' fees, to the extent permitted by law, whether incurred as a result of collection or in any other dispute involving your account. This includes, but is not limited to, disputes between you and another joint owner; you and an authorized signer or similar party; or a third party claiming an interest in your account. This also includes any action that you or a third party takes regarding the account that causes us, in good faith, to seek the advice of an attorney, whether or not we become involved in the dispute. All costs and attorneys' fees can be deducted from your account when they are incurred, without notice to you.

If you provide account information that facilitates creation of a check that is presented to us without signature, you are liable for payment of the check. Thus if you voluntarily give information about your account (such as our routing number and your account number) to a party who is seeking to sell you goods or services, and you don't physically deliver a check to the party, any debit to your account initiated by the party to whom you gave the information is deemed authorized. You agree to indemnify us from any claim against or loss incurred by us as a result of any demand draft or remotely created check drawn on or deposited into your account. This indemnity includes reasonable attorney fees incurred by us.

DEPOSITS - We will give only provisional credit until collection is final for any items, other than cash, we accept for deposit (including items drawn "on us"). Before settlement of any item becomes final, we act only as your agent, regardless of the form of indorsement or lack of indorsement on the item and even though we provide you provisional credit for the item. We may reverse any provisional credit for items that are lost, stolen, or returned. Unless prohibited by law, we also reserve the right to charge back to your account the amount of any item deposited to your account or cashed for you which was initially paid by the payor bank and which is later returned to us due to an allegedly forged, unauthorized or missing indorsement, claim of alteration, encoding error, counterfeit cashier's check or other problem which in our judgment justifies reversal of credit. You authorize us to attempt to collect previously returned items without giving you notice, and in attempting to collect we may permit the payor bank to hold an item beyond the midnight deadline. Actual credit for deposits of, or payable in, foreign currency will be at the exchange rate in effect on final collection in U.S. dollars. We are not responsible for transactions by mail or outside depository until we actually record them. We will treat and record all transactions received after our "daily cutoff time" on a business day we are open, or received on a day we are not open for business, as if initiated on the next business day that we are open. At our option, we may take an item for collection rather than for deposit. If we accept a third-party check or draft for deposit, we may require any third-party indorsers to verify or guarantee their indorsements, or indorse in our presence.

WITHDRAWALS -

Generally - Unless clearly indicated otherwise on the account records, any of you, acting alone, who signs to open the account or has authority to make withdrawals may withdraw or transfer all or any part of the account balance at any time. Each of you (until we receive written notice to the contrary) authorizes each other person who signs or has authority to make withdrawals to indorse any item payable to you or your order for deposit to this account or any other transaction with us.

Postdated checks - A postdated check is one which bears a date later than the date on which the check is written. We may properly pay and charge your account for a postdated check even though payment was made before the date of the check, unless we have received written notice of the postdating in time to have a reasonable opportunity to act. Because we process checks mechanically, your notice will not be effective and we will not be liable for failing to honor your notice unless it precisely identifies the number, date, amount and payee of the item.

Checks and withdrawal rules - We may refuse any withdrawal or transfer request which you attempt on forms not approved by us or by any method we do not specifically permit. We may refuse any withdrawal or transfer request which is greater in number than the frequency permitted, or which is for an amount greater or less than any withdrawal limitations. We will use the date the transaction is completed by us (as opposed to the date you initiate it) to apply the frequency limitations. In addition, we may place limitations on the account until your identity is verified.

Even if we honor a nonconforming request, we are not required to do so later. If you violate the stated transaction limitations (if any), in our discretion we may close your account or reclassify it as a transaction account. If we reclassify your account, your account will be subject to the fees and earnings rules of the new account classification.

If we are presented with an item drawn against your account that would be a "substitute check," as defined by law, but for an error or defect in the item introduced in the substitute check creation process, you agree that we may pay such item.

See the funds availability policy, the section titled Your Ability to Withdraw Funds, for information about when you can withdraw funds you deposit.

Cash withdrawals - We recommend you take care when making large cash withdrawals because carrying large amounts of cash may pose a danger to your personal safety. As an alternative to making a large cash withdrawal, you may want to consider a cashier's check or similar instrument. You assume full responsibility of any loss in the event the cash you withdraw is lost, stolen, or destroyed. You agree to hold us harmless from any loss you incur as a result of your decision to withdraw funds in the form of cash.

Multiple signatures, electronic check conversion, and similar transactions - An electronic check conversion transaction is a transaction where a check or similar item is converted into an electronic fund transfer as defined in the Electronic Fund Transfers regulation. In these types of transactions the check or similar item is either removed from circulation (truncated) or given back to you. As a result, we have no opportunity to review the signatures or otherwise examine the original check or item. You agree that, as to these or any items as to which we have no opportunity to examine the signatures, you waive any requirement of multiple signatures.

Notice of withdrawal - We reserve the right to require not less than 7 days' notice in writing before each withdrawal from an interest-bearing account other than a time deposit. Withdrawals from a time account prior to maturity or prior to any notice period may be restricted and may be subject to penalty. See your notice of penalty for early withdrawal.

UNDERSTANDING AND AVOIDING OVERDRAFT AND NONSUFFICIENT FUNDS (NSF) FEES -

Generally - The information in this section is being provided to help you understand what happens if your account is overdrawn. Understanding the concepts of overdrafts and nonsufficient funds (NSF) is important and can help you avoid being assessed fees or charges.

An overdrawn account will typically result in you being charged an overdraft fee or an NSF fee. Generally, an overdraft occurs when there is not enough money in your account to pay for a transaction, but we pay (or cover) the transaction anyway. An NSF transaction is slightly different. In an NSF transaction, we do not cover the transaction. Instead, the transaction is rejected and the item or requested payment is returned. In either situation, we can charge you a fee.

If you use our Overdraft Privilege product and we cover a transaction for which there is not enough money in your account to pay, we will consider that an overdraft. We treat all other transactions for which there is not enough money in your account as an NSF transaction, regardless of whether we cover the transaction or the transaction is rejected.

Determining your available balance - We use the "available balance" method to determine whether your account is overdrawn, that is, whether there is enough money in your account to pay for a transaction. Importantly, your "available" balance may not be the same as your account's "current" balance. Available balance can include memo posts throughout the day. This means an overdraft or an NSF transaction could occur regardless of your account's actual balance.

Your account's current balance (sometimes called the ledger or actual balance) only includes transactions that have settled up to that point in time, that is, transactions (deposits and payments) that have posted to your account. The actual balance does not include outstanding transactions (such as checks that have not yet cleared and electronic transactions that have been authorized but which are still pending). The balance on your periodic statement is the ledger balance for your account as of the statement date.

As the name implies, your available balance is calculated based on the money "available" in your account to make payments. In other words, the available balance takes transactions that have been authorized, but not yet settled, and subtracts them from the actual balance. In addition, when calculating your available balance, any "holds" placed on deposits that have not yet cleared are also subtracted from the actual balance. For more information on how holds placed on funds in your account can impact your available balance, read the subsection titled "A temporary debit authorization hold affects your account balance."

Alpine Bank offers other products and services to help meet your financial needs. Review each product or service terms and conditions independently, as definitions, such as available balance, may differ between them.

Overdrafts - You understand that we may, at our discretion, honor withdrawal requests that overdraw your account. However, the fact that we may honor withdrawal requests that overdraw the account balance does not obligate us to do so later. So you can NOT rely on us to pay overdrafts on your account regardless of how frequently or under what circumstances we have paid overdrafts on your account in the past. We can change our practice of paying, or not paying, discretionary overdrafts on your account without notice to you. You can ask us if we have other account services that might be available to you where we commit to paying overdrafts under certain circumstances, such as an overdraft protection line-of-credit or a plan to sweep funds from another account you have with us. You agree that we may charge fees for overdrafts. For consumer accounts, we will not charge fees for overdrafts caused by ATM withdrawals or one-time debit card transactions if you have not opted-in to that service. (A one-time debit card transaction is a transaction where you use a debit card at a point-of-sale, in an on-line transaction, or in a telephone transaction. The transaction has to be made with a debit card issued by or on behalf of the account-holding institution.) We may use subsequent deposits, including direct deposits of social security or other government benefits, to cover such overdrafts and overdraft fees.

Nonsufficient funds (NSF) fees - If an item drafted by you (such as a check) or a transaction you set up (such as a preauthorized transfer) is presented for payment in an amount that is more than the amount of money in your account, and we decide not to pay the item or transaction, you agree that we can charge you an NSF fee for returning the payment. Be aware that such an item or payment may be presented multiple times and that we do not monitor or control the number of times a transaction is presented for payment. You agree that we may charge you an NSF fee each time a payment is presented if the amount of money in your account is not sufficient to cover the payment, regardless of the number of times the payment is presented.

Payment types - Some, but not necessarily all, of the ways you can access the funds in your account include debit card transactions, automated clearing house (ACH) transactions, and check transactions. All these payment types can use different processing systems and some may take more or less time to post. This information is important for a number of reasons. For example, keeping track of the checks you write and the timing of the preauthorized payments you set up will help you to know what other transactions might still post against your account. For information about how and when we process these different payment types, see the "Payment order of items" subsection below.

Balance information - Keeping track of your balance is important. You can review your balance in a number of ways including reviewing your periodic statement, reviewing your balance online, accessing your account information by phone, or coming into one of our branches.

Funds availability - Knowing when funds you deposit into your checking account will be made available for withdrawal is another important concept that can help you avoid being assessed fees or charges. Refer to the funds availability policy, the section titled Your Ability to Withdraw Funds, for information on when different types of deposits will be made available for withdrawal. For those accounts to which our funds availability policy disclosure does not apply, you can ask us when you make a deposit when those funds will be available for withdrawal. An item may be returned after the funds from the deposit of that item are made available for withdrawal. In that case, we will reverse the credit of the item. We may determine the amount of available funds in your account for the purpose of deciding whether to return an item for insufficient funds at any time between the times we receive the item and when we return the item or send a notice in lieu of return. We need only make one determination, but if we choose to make a subsequent determination, the account balance at the subsequent time will determine whether there are insufficient available funds.

A temporary debit authorization hold affects your available balance - On debit card purchases, merchants may request a temporary hold on your account for a specified sum of money when the merchant does not know the exact amount of the purchase at the time the card is authorized. The amount of the temporary hold may be more than the actual amount of your purchase. Some common transactions where this occurs involve purchases of gasoline, hotel rooms, or meals at restaurants. When this happens, our processing system cannot determine that the amount of the hold exceeds the actual amount of your purchase. This temporary hold, and the amount charged to your account, will eventually be adjusted to the actual amount of your purchase, but it could be three calendar days, or even longer in some cases, before the adjustment is made.

Payment order of items - The order in which items are paid is important if there is not enough money in your account to pay all of the items that are presented. The payment order can affect the number of items overdrawn or returned unpaid and the amount of the fees you may have to pay. To assist you in managing your account, we are providing you with the following information regarding how we process those items.

Payment order on DDA & Savings accounts - Credits/deposits (Items being added to your balance) are always posted first in the account. Debits (item being deducted from your balance) generally will post in the following order: The list provided does not include all possible debit items, but rather a broad overview of common transactions. Alpine Bank will clear each item within these stated categories before proceeding to the next category.

  • Common Fees - For example, an NSF Returned Item fee, a non-Alpine/non-Allpoint ATM fee, a Chargeback item fee, or an account service fee;
  • Automatic Clearing Housing (ACH) - Electronic payments that are made directly from your Alpine account to: other financial institutions; payment services, such as PayPal and; other businesses;
  • ATM withdrawals;
  • Point of Sale (POS) or One-time Debit Card Transactions - Everyday transactions usually made with a merchant using a debit card;
  • Telephone Transfers - Transfers you have initiated by telephone between your Alpine accounts;
  • Transfers between your Alpine accounts;
  • Checks - Generally post based on sequential check number order received, lowest to highest; and
  • NSF Paid Item fees - Collect and post last.

If you have two items within the same categories as indicated above generally those items will post based on serial number (low to high); if those items within the stated category lack a serial number, the items will then post in a predetermined numeric order by category, if more than one item falls in the same category then it will post smallest dollar amount to the largest dollar amount.

If a check, item or transaction is presented without sufficient funds in your account to pay it, you will be charged an NSF or overdraft fee according to our NSF or overdraft fee policy, detailed in the Overdraft Privilege section. We will not charge you a fee for paying an overdraft of an ATM or one-time debit card transaction if this is a consumer account and you have not opted-in to that service. The amounts of the overdraft and NSF fees are disclosed elsewhere, as are your rights to opt in to overdraft services for ATM and one-time debit card transactions, if applicable. We encourage you to make careful records and practice good account management. This will help you to avoid creating items without sufficient funds and potentially incurring the resulting fees.

OWNERSHIP OF ACCOUNT AND BENEFICIARY DESIGNATION - These rules apply to this account depending on the form of ownership and beneficiary designation, if any, specified on the account records. We make no representations as to the appropriateness or effect of the ownership and beneficiary designations, except as they determine to whom we pay the account funds.

Single-Party Account - Such an account is owned by one party.

Multiple-Party Account - Parties own account jointly, and any party may withdraw or transfer all or any part of the account balance at any time.

RIGHTS AT DEATH - Single-Party Account - At the death of a party, ownership passes as part of the party's estate unless one or more pay-on-death, beneficiaries are designated.

Multiple-Party Account With Right of Survivorship - At death of party, ownership passes to surviving parties.

Single-Party Account With Pay-on-Death Designation - At death of the party, ownership passes to the designated pay-on-death beneficiaries and is not part of the party's estate.

Multiple-Party Account With Right of Survivorship and Pay-on-Death Designation - At death of last surviving party, ownership passes to the designated pay-on-death beneficiaries and is not part of the last surviving party's estate.

STOP PAYMENTS - The rules in this section cover stopping payment of common items such as checks and drafts, followed by specific rules for electronic fund transfers (e.g. Automatic Clearing House). If you have questions about rules we have not disclosed to you here or elsewhere, you may ask us about those rules.

We may accept an order to stop payment on any item from any one of you. You must make any stop-payment order in the manner required by law and we must receive it in time to give us a reasonable opportunity to act on it before our stop-payment cutoff time. Because stop-payment orders are handled by computers, to be effective, your stop-payment order must precisely identify the number, date, and amount of the item, and the payee. You may stop payment on any item drawn on your account whether you sign the item or not. Generally, if your stop-payment order is given to us in writing it is effective for six months. Your order will lapse after that time if you do not renew the order orally or in writing before the end of the six-month period. If the original stop-payment order was oral your stop-payment order may lapse after 14 calendar days if you do not confirm your order in writing within that time period. We are not obligated to notify you when a stop-payment order expires. A release of the stop-payment request may be made by any person who has ownership of the account the item was presented against.

If you stop payment on an item and we incur any damages or expenses because of the stop payment, you agree to indemnify us for those damages or expenses, including attorneys' fees. You assign to us all rights against the payee or any other holder of the item. You agree to cooperate with us in any legal actions that we may take against such persons. You should be aware that anyone holding the item may be entitled to enforce payment against you despite the stop-payment order. In all instances, if a stop payment order is $10,000.00 or more, Alpine Bank will require a written authorization that includes a signature. A release of the stop-payment request may be made by any person who has ownership of the account the item was presented against.

Our stop-payment cutoff time is one hour after the opening of the next banking day after the banking day on which we receive the item. Additional limitations on our obligation to stop payment are provided by law (e.g., we paid the item in cash or we certified the item).

ACH STOP PAYMENTS - Excluding the following requirements as defined in this section, all provisions stated above are also applicable to stop payments for Automatic Clearing House items. Generally, if your stop-payment order is given to us in writing it is effective indefinitely, or until you release the stop-payment request. If the original stop-payment order was oral your stop-payment order will lapse after 14 calendar days if you do not confirm your order in writing within that time period. We are not obligated to notify you when a stop-payment order expires. A release of the stop-payment request may be made by any person who has ownership of the account the item was presented against. To remain in effect for more than 14 calendar days, all stop-payment orders for an electronic fund transfer, regardless of the dollar amount, will require a written authorization that includes a signature.

Our stop-payment cutoff time for ACH items is no less than three business days before an item has been received by Alpine Bank, otherwise Alpine Bank cannot guarantee the effectiveness of the stop-payment order. Additional limitations on our obligation to stop payment are provided by law.

TELEPHONE TRANSFERS - A telephone transfer of funds from this account to another account with us, if otherwise arranged for or permitted, may be made by the same persons and under the same conditions generally applicable to withdrawals made in writing. Unless a different limitation is disclosed in writing, we restrict the number of transfers from a savings account to another account or to third parties, to a maximum of six per month (less the number of "preauthorized transfers" during the month). Other account transfer restrictions may be described elsewhere.

AMENDMENTS AND TERMINATION - We may change any term of this agreement. Rules governing changes in interest rates are provided separately in the Truth-in-Savings disclosure or in another document. For other changes, we will give you reasonable notice in writing or by any other method permitted by law. We may also close this account at any time upon reasonable notice to you and tender of the account balance personally or by mail. Items presented for payment after the account is closed may be dishonored. When you close your account, you are responsible for leaving enough money in the account to cover any outstanding items to be paid from the account. Reasonable notice depends on the circumstances, and in some cases such as when we cannot verify your identity or we suspect fraud, it might be reasonable for us to give you notice after the change or account closure becomes effective. For instance, if we suspect fraudulent activity with respect to your account, we might immediately freeze or close your account and then give you notice. If we have notified you of a change in any term of your account and you continue to have your account after the effective date of the change, you have agreed to the new term(s).

NOTICES - Any written notice you give us is effective when we actually receive it, and it must be given to us according to the specific delivery instructions provided elsewhere, if any. We must receive it in time to have a reasonable opportunity to act on it. If the notice is regarding a check or other item, you must give us sufficient information to be able to identify the check or item, including the precise check or item number, amount, date and payee. Written notice we give you is effective when it is deposited in the United States Mail with proper postage and addressed to your mailing address we have on file. Notice to any of you is notice to all of you.

STATEMENTS - Your duty to report unauthorized signatures, alterations and forgeries - You must examine your statement of account with "reasonable promptness." If you discover (or reasonably should have discovered) any unauthorized signatures or alterations or any other indication of forgery or counterfeiting, you must promptly notify us of the relevant facts. As between you and us, if you fail to do either of these duties, you will have to either share the loss with us, or bear the loss entirely yourself (depending on whether we used ordinary care and, if not, whether we contributed to the loss). The loss could be not only with respect to items on the statement but other items with unauthorized signatures or alterations by the same wrongdoer.

You agree that the time you have to examine your statement and report to us will depend on the circumstances, but will not, in any circumstance, exceed a total of 30 days from when the statement is first sent or made available to you.

You further agree that if you fail to report any unauthorized signatures, alterations or forgeries in your account within 30 days of when we first send or make the statement available, you cannot assert a claim against us on any items in that statement, and as between you and us the loss will be entirely yours. This 30-day limitation is without regard to whether we used ordinary care. The limitation in this paragraph is in addition to that contained in the first paragraph of this section.

Your duty to report other errors or problems - In addition to your duty to review your statements for unauthorized signatures, alterations and forgeries, you agree to examine your statement with reasonable promptness for any other error or problem - such as an encoding error or an unexpected deposit amount. Also, if you receive or we make available either your items or images of your items, you must examine them for any unauthorized or missing indorsements or any other problems. You agree that the time you have to examine your statement and items and report to us will depend on the circumstances. However, this time period shall not exceed 30 days. Failure to examine your statement and items and report any errors to us within 30 days of when we first send or make the statement available precludes you from asserting a claim against us for any errors on items identified in that statement and as between you and us the loss will be entirely yours.

Errors relating to electronic fund transfers or substitute checks - For information on errors relating to electronic fund transfers (e.g., on-line, mobile, computer, debit card or ATM transactions) refer to your Electronic Fund Transfers disclosure and the sections on consumer liability and error resolution. For information on errors relating to a substitute check you received, refer to your disclosure entitled Substitute Checks and Your Rights.

Duty to notify if statement not received - You agree to immediately notify us if you do not receive your statement by the date you normally expect to receive it. Not receiving your statement in a timely manner is a sign that there may be an issue with your account, such as possible fraud or identity theft.

ACCOUNT TRANSFER - This account may not be transferred or assigned without our prior written consent.

DIRECT DEPOSITS - If we are required for any reason to reimburse the federal government for all or any portion of a benefit payment that was directly deposited into your account, you authorize us to deduct the amount of our liability to the federal government from the account or from any other account you have with us, without prior notice and at any time, except as prohibited by law. We may also use any other legal remedy to recover the amount of our liability.

TEMPORARY ACCOUNT AGREEMENT - If the account documentation indicates that this is a temporary account agreement, each person who signs to open the account or has authority to make withdrawals (except as indicated to the contrary) may transact business on this account. However, we may at some time in the future restrict or prohibit further use of this account if you fail to comply with the requirements we have imposed within a reasonable time.

SETOFF - We may (without prior notice and when permitted by law) set off the funds in this account against any due and payable debt any of you owe us now or in the future. If your debt arises from a promissory note, then the amount of the due and payable debt will be the full amount we have demanded, as entitled under the terms of the note, and this amount may include any portion of the balance for which we have properly accelerated the due date.

This right of setoff does not apply to this account if prohibited by law. For example, the right of setoff does not apply to this account if: (a) it is an Individual Retirement Account or similar tax-deferred account, or (b) the debt is created by a consumer credit transaction under a credit card plan (but this does not affect our rights under any consensual security interest), or (c) the debtor's right of withdrawal only arises in a representative capacity. We will not be liable for the dishonor of any check when the dishonor occurs because we set off a debt against this account. You agree to hold us harmless from any claim arising as a result of our exercise of our right of setoff.

AGENCY (Power of Attorney) DESIGNATION (Single-Party Accounts only) - A single individual is the owner. The agent is merely designated to conduct transactions on the owner's behalf. The owner does not give up any rights to act on the account, and the agent may not in any manner affect the rights of the owner or beneficiaries, if any. The owner is responsible for any transactions of the agent. We undertake no obligation to monitor transactions to determine that they are on the owner's behalf.

The owner may terminate the agency at any time, and the agency is automatically terminated by the death of the owner. However, we may continue to honor the transactions of the agent until: (a) we have received written notice or have actual knowledge of the termination of the agency, and (b) we have a reasonable opportunity to act on that notice or knowledge. We may refuse to accept the designation of an agent.

RESTRICTIVE LEGENDS OR INDORSEMENTS - The automated processing of the large volume of checks we receive prevents us from inspecting or looking for restrictive legends, restrictive indorsements or other special instructions on every check. For this reason, we are not required to honor any restrictive legend or indorsement or other special instruction placed on checks you write unless we have agreed in writing to the restriction or instruction. Unless we have agreed in writing, we are not responsible for any losses, claims, damages, or expenses that result from your placement of these restrictions or instructions on your checks. Examples of restrictive legends placed on checks are "must be presented within 90 days" or "not valid for more than $1,000.00." The payee's signature accompanied by the words "for deposit only" is an example of a restrictive indorsement.

FACSIMILE/ELECTRONIC SIGNATURES - You authorize us at any time, to charge you for all checks, drafts or other orders for the payment of money (instruments) utilizing a facsimile or electronic signature(s), which are drawn on us regardless of by whom or by what means the facsimile/electronic signature(s) may have been affixed. This authorization specifically includes forged or counterfeit instruments using a facsimile/electronic signature, and you agree to be solely responsible for any loss which may be incurred by virtue of the use of facsimile/electronic signature(s) under this paragraph. You expressly assume all risks involved with any unauthorized use of such facsimile/electronic signature(s) and agree that you shall be responsible for and chargeable with the amount of all instruments bearing such facsimile/electronic signature(s) or signatures resembling the same, whether or not authorized by you. This agreement is made pursuant to C.R.S. 4-4-103(a) and is intended to allow variation of the normal allocation of losses from forged checks based on the provisions of the Uniform Commercial Code.

CHECK PROCESSING - We process items mechanically by relying solely on the information encoded in magnetic ink along the bottom of the items. This means that we do not individually examine all of your items to determine if the item is properly completed, signed and indorsed or to determine if it contains any information other than what is encoded in magnetic ink. You agree that we have exercised ordinary care if our automated processing is consistent with general banking practice, even though we do not inspect each item. Because we do not inspect each item, if you write a check to multiple payees, we can properly pay the check regardless of the number of indorsements unless you notify us in writing that the check requires multiple indorsements. We must receive the notice in time for us to have a reasonable opportunity to act on it, and you must tell us the precise date of the check, amount, check number and payee. We are not responsible for any unauthorized signature or alteration that would not be identified by a reasonable inspection of the item. Using an automated process helps us keep costs down for you and all account holders.

CHECK CASHING - We may charge a fee for anyone that does not have an account with us who is cashing a check, draft or other instrument written on your account. We may also require reasonable identification to cash such a check, draft or other instrument. We can decide what identification is reasonable under the circumstances and such identification may be documentary or physical and may include collecting a thumbprint or fingerprint.

INDORSEMENTS - We may accept for deposit any item payable to you or your order, even if they are not indorsed by you. We may give cash back to any one of you. We may supply any missing indorsement(s) for any item we accept for deposit or collection, and you warrant that all indorsements are genuine.

To ensure that your check or share draft is processed without delay, you must indorse it (sign it on the back) in a specific area. Your entire indorsement (whether a signature or a stamp) along with any other indorsement information (e.g. additional indorsements, ID information, driver's license number, etc.) must fall within 11/2" of the "trailing edge" of a check. Indorsements must be made in blue or black ink, so that they are readable by automated check processing equipment.

As you look at the front of a check, the "trailing edge" is the left edge. When you flip the check over, be sure to keep all indorsement information within 11/2" of that edge.

Check Indorsement

It is important that you confine the indorsement information to this area since the remaining blank space will be used by others in the processing of the check to place additional needed indorsements and information. You agree that you will indemnify, defend, and hold us harmless for any loss, liability, damage or expense that occurs because your indorsement, another indorsement or information you have printed on the back of the check obscures our indorsement.

These indorsement guidelines apply to both personal and business checks.

STALE-DATED CHECKS - We are not obligated to, but may at our option, pay a check, other than a certified check, presented for payment more than six months after its date. If you do not want us to pay a stale-dated check, you must place a stop-payment order on the check in the manner we have described elsewhere.

DEATH OR INCOMPETENCE - You agree to notify us promptly if any person with a right to withdraw funds from your account(s) dies or is adjudicated (determined by the appropriate official) incompetent. We may continue to honor your checks, items, and instructions until: (a) we know of your death or adjudication of incompetence, and (b) we have had a reasonable opportunity to act on that knowledge. You agree that we may pay or certify checks drawn on or before the date of death or adjudication of incompetence for up to ten (10) days after your death or adjudication of incompetence unless ordered to stop payment by someone claiming an interest in the account.

FIDUCIARY ACCOUNTS - Accounts may be opened by a person acting in a fiduciary capacity. A fiduciary is someone who is appointed to act on behalf of and for the benefit of another. We are not responsible for the actions of a fiduciary, including the misuse of funds. This account may be opened and maintained by a person or persons named as a trustee under a written trust agreement, or as executors, administrators, or conservators under court orders. You understand that by merely opening such an account, we are not acting in the capacity of a trustee in connection with the trust nor do we undertake any obligation to monitor or enforce the terms of the trust or letters or court order.

CREDIT VERIFICATION - You agree that we may verify credit and employment history by any necessary means, including preparation of a credit report by a credit reporting agency.

LEGAL ACTIONS AFFECTING YOUR ACCOUNT - If we are served with a subpoena, restraining order, writ of attachment or execution, levy, garnishment, search warrant, or similar order relating to your account (termed "legal action" in this section), we will comply with that legal action. Or, in our discretion, we may freeze the assets in the account and not allow any payments out of the account until a final court determination regarding the legal action. We may do these things even if the legal action involves less than all of you. In these cases, we will not have any liability to you if there are insufficient funds to pay your items because we have withdrawn funds from your account or in any way restricted access to your funds in accordance with the legal action. Any fees or expenses we incur in responding to any legal action (including, without limitation, attorneys' fees and our internal expenses) may be charged against your account. The list of fees applicable to your account(s) provided elsewhere may specify additional fees that we may charge for certain legal actions.

ACCOUNT SECURITY -

Duty to protect account information and methods of access - It is your responsibility to protect the account numbers and electronic access devices (e.g., a debit card) we provide you for your account(s). Do not discuss, compare, or share information about your account number(s) with anyone unless you are willing to give them full use of your money. An account number can be used by thieves to issue an electronic debit or to encode your number on a false demand draft which looks like and functions like an authorized check. If you furnish your access device and grant actual authority to make transfers to another person (a family member or coworker, for example) who then exceeds that authority, you are liable for the transfers unless we have been notified that transfers by that person are no longer authorized.

Your account number can also be used to electronically remove money from your account, and payment can be made from your account even though you did not contact us directly and order the payment.

You must also take precaution in safeguarding your blank checks. Notify us at once if you believe your checks have been lost or stolen. As between you and us, if you are negligent in safeguarding your checks, you must bear the loss entirely yourself or share the loss with us (we may have to share some of the loss if we failed to use ordinary care and if we substantially contributed to the loss).

Fraud prevention services - Except for consumer electronic fund transfers subject to Regulation E, you agree that if we offer you services appropriate for your account to help identify and limit fraud or other unauthorized transactions against your account, and you reject those services, you will be responsible for any fraudulent or unauthorized transactions which could have been prevented by the services we offered. You will not be responsible for such transactions if we acted in bad faith or to the extent our negligence contributed to the loss. Such services may include commercially reasonable security procedures. If we offered you a commercially reasonable security procedure which you reject, you agree that you are responsible for any payment order, whether authorized or not, that we accept in compliance with an alternative security procedure that you have selected.

TELEPHONIC INSTRUCTIONS - Unless required by law or we have agreed otherwise in writing, we are not required to act upon instructions you give us via facsimile transmission or leave by voice mail or on a telephone answering machine.

MONITORING AND RECORDING TELEPHONE CALLS AND CONSENT TO RECEIVE COMMUNICATIONS - Subject to federal and state law, we may monitor or record phone calls for security reasons, to maintain a record and to ensure that you receive courteous and efficient service. You consent in advance to any such recording.

To provide you with the best possible service in our ongoing business relationship for your account we may need to contact you about your account from time to time by telephone, text messaging or email. However, we first obtain your consent to contact you about your account in compliance with applicable consumer protection provisions in the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (TCPA), CAN-SPAM Act and their related federal regulations and orders issued by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

  • Your consent is limited to your account, and as authorized by applicable law and regulations.
  • Your consent is voluntary and not conditioned on the purchase of any product or service from us.

With the above understandings, you authorize us to contact you regarding your account throughout its existence using any telephone numbers or email addresses that you have previously provided to us by virtue of an existing business relationship or that you may subsequently provide to us..

This consent is regardless of whether the number we use to contact you is assigned to a landline, a paging service, a cellular wireless service, a specialized mobile radio service, other radio common carrier service or any other service for which you may be charged for the call. You further authorize us to contact you through the use of voice, voice mail and text messaging, including the use of pre-recorded or artificial voice messages and an automated dialing device.

If necessary, you may change or remove any of the telephone numbers or email addresses at any time using any reasonable means to notify us.

CLAIM OF LOSS - If you claim a credit or refund because of a forgery, alteration, or any other unauthorized withdrawal, you agree to cooperate with us in the investigation of the loss, including giving us an affidavit containing whatever reasonable information we require concerning your account, the transaction, and the circumstances surrounding the loss. You will notify law enforcement authorities of any criminal act related to the claim of lost, missing, or stolen checks or unauthorized withdrawals. We will have a reasonable period of time to investigate the facts and circumstances surrounding any claim of loss. Unless we have acted in bad faith, we will not be liable for special or consequential damages, including loss of profits or opportunity, or for attorneys' fees incurred by you.

You agree that you will not waive any rights you have to recover your loss against anyone who is obligated to repay, insure, or otherwise reimburse you for your loss. You will pursue your rights or, at our option, assign them to us so that we may pursue them. Our liability will be reduced by the amount you recover or are entitled to recover from these other sources.

EARLY WITHDRAWAL PENALTIES (and involuntary withdrawals) - We may impose early withdrawal penalties on a withdrawal from a time account even if you don't initiate the withdrawal. For instance, the early withdrawal penalty may be imposed if the withdrawal is caused by our setoff against funds in the account or as a result of an attachment or other legal process. We may close your account and impose the early withdrawal penalty on the entire account balance in the event of a partial early withdrawal. See your notice of penalty for early withdrawals for additional information.

ADDRESS OR NAME CHANGES - You are responsible for notifying us of any change in your address or your name. Unless we agree otherwise, change of address or name must be made in writing by at least one of the account holders. Informing us of your address or name change on a check reorder form is not sufficient. We will attempt to communicate with you only by use of the most recent address you have provided to us. If provided elsewhere, we may impose a service fee if we attempt to locate you.

RESOLVING ACCOUNT DISPUTES - We may restrict the account or place a freeze on the funds in your account (refuse payment or withdrawal of the funds) if it becomes subject to a claim adverse to (1) your own interest; (2) others claiming an interest as survivors or beneficiaries of your account; or (3) a claim arising by operation of law. The hold may be placed for such period of time as we believe reasonably necessary to allow a legal proceeding to determine the merits of the claim or until we receive evidence satisfactory to us that the dispute has been resolved. We will not be liable for any items that are dishonored as a consequence of placing a hold on funds in your account for these reasons.

WAIVER OF NOTICES - To the extent permitted by law, you waive any notice of non-payment, dishonor or protest regarding any items credited to or charged against your account. For example, if you deposit an item and it is returned unpaid or we receive a notice of nonpayment, we do not have to notify you unless required by federal Regulation CC or other law.

ACH AND WIRE TRANSFERS - This agreement is subject to Article 4A of the Uniform Commercial Code - Fund Transfers as adopted in the state in which you have your account with us. If you originate a fund transfer and you identify by name and number a beneficiary financial institution, an intermediary financial institution or a beneficiary, we and every receiving or beneficiary financial 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. You agree to be bound by automated clearing house association rules. These rules provide, among other things, that payments made to you, or originated by you, are provisional until final settlement is made through a Federal Reserve Bank or payment is otherwise made as provided in Article 4A-403(a) of the Uniform Commercial Code. If we do not receive such payment, we are entitled to a refund from you in the amount credited to your account and the party originating such payment will not be considered to have paid the amount so credited. Credit entries may be made by ACH. If we receive a payment order to credit an account you have with us by wire or ACH, we are not required to give you any notice of the payment order or credit.

TRUNCATION, SUBSTITUTE CHECKS, AND OTHER CHECK IMAGES - If you truncate an original check and create a substitute check, or other paper or electronic image of the original check, you warrant that no one will be asked to make payment on the original check, a substitute check or any other electronic or paper image, if the payment obligation relating to the original check has already been paid. You also warrant that any substitute check you create conforms to the legal requirements and generally accepted specifications for substitute checks. You agree to retain the original check in conformance with our internal policy for retaining original checks. You agree to indemnify us for any loss we may incur as a result of any truncated check transaction you initiate. We can refuse to accept substitute checks that have not previously been warranted by a bank or other financial institution in conformance with the Check 21 Act. Unless specifically stated in a separate agreement between you and us, we do not have to accept any other electronic or paper image of an original check.

REMOTELY CREATED CHECKS - Like any standard check or draft, a remotely created check (sometimes called a telecheck, preauthorized draft or demand draft) is a check or draft that can be used to withdraw money from an account. Unlike a typical check or draft, however, a remotely created check is not issued by the paying bank and does not contain the signature of the account owner (or a signature purported to be the signature of the account owner). In place of a signature, the check usually has a statement that the owner authorized the check or has the owner's name typed or printed on the signature line.

You warrant and agree to the following for every remotely created check we receive from you for deposit or collection: (1) you have received express and verifiable authorization to create the check in the amount and to the payee that appears on the check; (2) you will maintain proof of the authorization for at least 2 years from the date of the authorization, and supply us the proof if we ask; and (3) if a check is returned you owe us the amount of the check, regardless of when the check is returned. We may take funds from your account to pay the amount you owe us, and if there are insufficient funds in your account, you still owe us the remaining balance.

SUBACCOUNT ORGANIZATION - We have organized your account in a nontraditional way. Your account consists of two subaccounts. One of these is a transaction subaccount (e.g., a checking subaccount). You will transact business on this subaccount. The other is a nontransaction subaccount (e.g., a savings subaccount). You cannot directly access the nontransaction subaccount, but you agree that we may automatically, and without a specific request from you, initiate individual transfers of funds between subaccounts from time to time at no cost to you. This account organization will not change the amount of federal deposit insurance available to you, your available balance, the information on your periodic statements, or the interest calculation, if this is an interest-bearing account. You will not see any difference between the way your account operates and the way a traditionally organized account operates, but this organization makes us more efficient and helps to keep costs down.

HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNTS (HSA) - For your convenience, we permit you to take distributions from your HSA by check. This feature can raise a variety of tax concerns – for example getting additional cash back on an HSA checking transaction. As a result, if you have more than one account with us, it is a good practice to make sure you are using the appropriate checkbook for the transaction. Also, it is your responsibility to ensure your distributions and other actions related to the HSA comply with the law, including federal tax law. As always, we recommend consulting a legal or tax professional if you have any questions about managing your HSA. The terms of this agreement are intended to work in conjunction with the HSA Custodial Booklet provided to you earlier. In the event of a conflict, the terms of the HSA Custodial Booklet control. You understand that your HSA is intended to be used for payment of qualified medical expenses. It is your responsibility to satisfy any tax liability resulting from use of your HSA for any purpose other than payment or reimbursement of qualified medical expenses. We do not monitor the purpose of any transaction to or from your HSA. Nor are we responsible for ensuring your eligibility for making contributions or ensuring withdrawals are used for payment or reimbursement of qualified medical expenses. Refer to your HSA Custodial Booklet for more information relating to the use of your HSA.

FUNDS TRANSFERS - The terms used in this section have the meaning given to them in UCC 4A. This section will generally not apply to you if you are a consumer. However, even if you are a consumer, this section will apply to that part of any funds transfer that is conducted by Fedwire. This section is subject to UCC 4A as adopted in the state in which you have your deposit with us. This agreement is also subject to all clearing house association rules, rules of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and their operating circulars. If any part of this agreement is determined to be unenforceable, the rest of the agreement remains effective. This agreement controls funds transfers unless supplemented or amended in a separate written agreement signed by us. This agreement does not apply to a funds transfer if any part of the transfer is governed by the Electronic Fund Transfer Act of 1978 (EFTA), except this agreement does apply to a funds transfer that is a remittance transfer as defined in EFTA unless the remittance transfer is an electronic fund transfer as defined in EFTA.

Funds transfer - A funds transfer is the transaction or series of transactions that begin with the originator's payment order, made for the purpose of making payment to the beneficiary of the order. A funds transfer is completed by the acceptance by the beneficiary's bank of a payment order for the benefit of the beneficiary of the originator's order. You may give us a payment order orally, electronically, or in writing, but your order cannot state any condition to payment to the beneficiary other than the time of payment. Credit entries may be made by ACH.

Authorized account - An authorized account is a deposit account you have with us that you have designated as a source of payment of payment orders you issue to us. If you have not designated an authorized account, any account you have with us is an authorized account to the extent that payment of the payment order is not inconsistent with the use of the account.

Acceptance of your payment order - We are not obligated to accept any payment order that you give us. If we elect to accept your payment order, we will use reasonable efforts to comply with the payment order in paying the proceeds to the beneficiary, if we are also the beneficiary's bank, or in executing the payment order if we are not also the beneficiary's bank. We may, in all cases, rely on and accept payment orders issued on your behalf by any individual(s) authorized to sign checks on any of your depository accounts with us. If we do not execute your payment order, but give you notice of our rejection of your payment order after the execution date or give you no notice, we are not liable to pay you as restitution any interest on a withdrawable credit in a non-interest-bearing account.

Rejection of payment order - You agree that we may reject any payment order you issue. We have no obligation to notify you of the rejection of your payment order and we shall have no liability to you for rejection of a payment order.

Cutoff time - If we do not receive and accept your payment order or communication canceling or amending a payment order before our cutoff time on a funds transfer day for that type of order or communication, the order or communication will be deemed to be received at the opening of our next funds transfer business day.

Payment of your order - If we accept your payment order or if the payment order is otherwise made effective against you, you agree to settle for the payment order. We may receive payment by automatically deducting from any authorized account the amount of the payment order plus the amount of any expenses, charges and fees for our services or corresponding bank charges related to execution of your payment order. We are entitled to payment at the time of the payment order. Unless your payment order specifies otherwise, the payment or execution date is the funds transfer date we receive the payment order. The funds transfer is completed upon acceptance by the beneficiary's bank. Your obligation to pay your payment order is excused if the funds transfer is not completed, but you are still responsible to pay us any expenses and charges for our services. However, if you told us to route the funds transfer through an intermediate bank, and we are unable to obtain a refund because the intermediate bank that you designated has suspended payments, then you are still obligated to pay us for the payment order. You will not be entitled to interest on any refund you receive because the beneficiary's bank does not accept the payment order.

Security procedure - As described more fully in a separate writing, the authenticity of a payment order or communication canceling or amending a payment order issued in your name as sender may be verified by a security procedure. You affirm that you have no circumstances which are relevant to the determination of a commercially reasonable security procedure unless those circumstances are expressly contained in a separate writing signed by us. You may choose from one or more security procedures that we have developed, or you may develop your own security procedure if it is acceptable to us. If you refuse a commercially reasonable security procedure that we have offered you, you agree that you will be bound by any payment order issued in your name, whether or not authorized, that we accept in good faith and in compliance with the security procedure you have chosen.

Errors in payment orders - You agree that we have no obligation to discover errors in payment orders, including duplicate payment orders, and shall not be liable to you for errors you made, including but not limited to errors made in identifying the beneficiary, or an intermediary or beneficiary's bank, or for errors in the amount of the payment order. In the event that you make an error or issue a duplicate Payment Order, you agree to indemnify, defend all claims, and hold us harmless from any loss, damages or expenses, including but not limited to attorneys' fees, we incur as the result of completion of the funds transfer.

Duty to report unauthorized or erroneous payment - You must exercise ordinary care to determine that all payment orders or amendments to payment orders that we accept that are issued in your name are authorized, enforceable, in the correct amount, to the correct beneficiary, and not otherwise erroneous. If you discover (or with reasonable care should have discovered) an unauthorized, unenforceable, or erroneously executed payment order or amendment, you must exercise ordinary care to notify us of the relevant facts. You shall notify us of any discrepancy between the Payment Order and the related funds transfer, or of any unauthorized transaction or other error on the next business day following receipt of any advice or within 14 calendar days of the delivery or mailing by us (whichever occurs first) of any statement of account relating to the authorized account, whichever is earlier, which time limits you agree are reasonable. You will be deemed to have received any advices and statements of account that are mailed by us five (5) business days after such mailing. We shall have no liability to you for any loss or damage sustained by you arising out of any payment order referenced in a statement of account for the authorized account or in an individual advice, and you shall not bring any legal proceeding or action against us to recover such loss or damage, unless (a) you shall have given the written notice as provided for herein, and (b) such legal proceeding or action shall be commenced within the period established by UCC 4A. The Customer waives any right to seek or enforce payment of attorneys' fees related thereto. If you do not provide us with timely notice you will not be entitled to interest on any refundable amount. If we can prove that you failed to perform either of these duties with respect to an erroneous payment and that we incurred a loss as a result of the failure, you are liable to us for the amount of the loss not exceeding the amount of your order.

Identifying number - If your payment order identifies an intermediate bank, beneficiary bank, or beneficiary by name and number, we and every receiving or beneficiary bank may solely rely upon the identifying number rather than the name to make payment, even if the number identifies an intermediate bank or person different than the bank or beneficiary identified by name. Neither we nor any receiving or beneficiary bank have any responsibility to determine whether the name and identifying number refer to the same financial institution or person.

Record of oral or telephone orders - You agree that we may, if we choose, record any oral or telephone payment order or communication of amendment or cancelation.

Notice of credit - If we receive a payment order to credit an account you have with us, we are not required to provide you with any notice of the payment order or the credit.

Provisional credit - You agree to be bound by the automated clearing house association operating rules that provide that payments made to you or originated by you by funds transfer through the automated clearing house system are provisional until final settlement is made through a Federal Reserve Bank or otherwise payment is made as provided in Article 4A-403(a) of the Uniform Commercial Code.

Refund of credit - You agree that if we do not receive payment of an amount credited to your account, we are entitled to a refund from you in the amount credited and the party originating such payment will not be considered to have paid the amount so credited.

Amendment of funds transfer agreement - From time to time we may amend any term of this agreement by giving you reasonable notice in writing. We may give notice to anyone who is authorized to send payment orders to us in your name, or to anyone who is authorized to accept service.

Cancelation or amendment of payment order - You may cancel or amend a payment order you give us only if we receive the communication of cancelation or amendment (a) before our cutoff time and (b) in time and in a manner affording us a reasonable opportunity to act on it before we accept the payment order. The communication of cancelation or amendment must be presented in conformity with the same security procedure that has been agreed to for payment orders.

If we accept any cancellation of a payment order, you agree that we are relieved of any obligation to act on such payment order. If we accept any amendment of a payment order, you agree that we are relieved of any obligation to act on the un-amended form of the payment order. You acknowledge and agree that after a payment order has been accepted by the beneficiary's bank, return of such funds must be authorized by the beneficiary and we have no responsibility to procure the return of such funds. If you deposit with us an amount reasonably determined in good faith by us to approximate the costs and expenses (including attorney's fees) which we may incur in attempting to recover the funds transferred, we may, in our sole discretion, make an attempt to recover the funds. In lieu of such a deposit, we may request you to provide a bond or other assurance of payment reasonably satisfactory to us. In no event shall we be deemed to have guaranteed the recovery of any portion of the amount transferred.

Use of correspondents, agents and systems - You agree that we may make use of such correspondents, agents and communication systems as it deems necessary or desirable to execute a payment order. To the fullest extent permitted by law (a) such correspondents, agents and systems shall be deemed to be your agents and we shall not be liable for any errors, negligence, suspension, or default of any of them or for any failure to identify the beneficiary or any mistake in payment by any of them, and (b) we shall not be liable for any errors, mutilations, misdelivery or failure of delivery in the transmission of any payment order by such correspondents, agents and communication systems or for any suspension of any means of communication or for any imposition of a censorship, exchange control or other restriction by such correspondents, agents, and communication systems, all such risk being borne by you. Each Payment Order, amendment or cancellation thereof, carried out through a funds transfer system will be governed by all applicable funds transfer system rules. Any payment order or cancellation thereof may be transmitted by any bank by use of the funds transfer system of the Federal Reserve Bank ("Fedwire"). All of your and our rights and obligations with respect to any payment order, any part of which is carried out through the use of the Fedwire, shall be governed by any applicable laws, the regulations of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve system, and the operating circulars of the Federal Reserve Bank.

Intermediaries - We are not liable for the actions of any intermediary, regardless of whether or not we selected the intermediary. We are not responsible for acts of God, outside agencies, or nonsalaried agents.

Limit on liability - We shall be liable only for our gross negligence or willful misconduct in performing these funds transfer services. We shall not be liable for acts or omission by you or any other person or entity, including without limitation any funds transfer systems, any Federal Reserve Bank, any beneficiary's bank and any beneficiary, none of which shall be deemed our agent. Without limitation, we shall be excused from delaying or failing to act if caused by legal constraint, interruption of transmission or communication facilities, equipment failure, war, emergency conditions, strikes or other circumstances beyond our control. In addition, we shall be excused from delaying or failing to execute a wire transfer due to any changes in the rules, regulations and policies of the Federal Reserve Board that affect our ability to send or receive wires at any time, for any reason, if the wire transfer would result in our exceeding any limitation on its intra-day net funds position established through Federal Reserve guidelines or if the wire transfer would result in violating any present or future risk control program of the Federal Reserve or a rule or regulation of any other governmental regulatory authorities. You waive any claim you may have against us for consequential, punitive or special damages, including loss of profit arising out of a payment order or funds transfer, unless this waiver is prohibited by law. We are not responsible for attorneys' fees you might incur due to erroneous execution of payment order.

Erroneous execution - If we receive an order to pay you, and we erroneously pay you more than the amount of the payment order, we are entitled to recover from you the amount in excess of the amount of the payment order, regardless of whether you may have some claim to the excess amount against the originator of the order.

Objection to payment - If we give you a notice that reasonably identifies a payment order issued in your name as sender that we have accepted and received payment for, you cannot claim that we are not entitled to retain the payment unless you notify us of your objection to the payment within one year of our notice to you.

International payment orders - Fund transfers to beneficiaries outside of the United States may be paid to the beneficiary in the foreign currency of the country to which the funds are transferred. It is your sole responsibility to notify the beneficiary that the funds originated in U.S. dollars may be paid to the beneficiary in the currency of the country to which the funds are transferred at our buying rate of exchange for wire transfers. We are not responsible for fluctuations in exchange rates. Additional terms contained in the Bank's "Remittance Transfer Disclosure" apply if you are a consumer and the beneficiary is located outside of the United States. If you are a business entity, the business entity represents and warrants that the payment order is not issued for personal, family or household purposes.

Your cooperation - In the event that we are entitled under the law governing mistake and restitution to recover from any beneficiary all or any part of a funds transfer made to such beneficiary hereunder, you agree upon our request but without expense to us to testify in any legal proceedings and otherwise take any action necessary to assist or enable us to recover from such beneficiary. You hereby consent to our disclosure to government authorities of information concerning you and transactions under this agreement that we believe to be appropriate or necessary to fulfill legal recordkeeping and reporting requirements. Upon our request, you agree to provide us with any transaction information we request to handle inquiries or tracing, or otherwise to comply with applicable laws and regulations relating to payment orders, including but not limited to dollar amounts, account(s) affected, dates and names of beneficiaries and third parties involved in the transfer.

Compliance with laws - You agree to comply with all applicable laws, rules, procedures and regulations with respect to your use of accounts with us and your use of the Funds Transfer service. We will endeavor to comply with regulations issued by the U.S. Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control ("OFAC"). If any payment order is to a person or entity listed on OFAC's list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons, by law, we shall not complete the transfer and shall "block" the funds until such time that OFAC issues a written release to us.

Indemnification - You shall be liable to us for and shall indemnify and hold us and our affiliates and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents harmless from and against any and all claims, causes of action, damages, expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees and other legal expenses), liabilities and other losses arising or resulting from your acts or omissions, or from your (or by any other person or entity acting on your behalf) provision of invalid or inaccurate data, including without limitation (a) a breach by you of any provision of this agreement; (b) our debiting or crediting of the account of any person or entity as requested by you; and (c) the failure to act or the delay of any financial institution other than us.

Privilegio de sobregiro

A SPECIAL SERVICE FOR CHECKING

En Alpine Bank, no alentamos los sobregiros; te incentivamos para que manejes tus finanzas de manera responsable. However, we want to help save you from possible additional merchant fees and damage to your credit history that might result if an item is returned.

Por eso, ofrecemos "Privilegio de sobregiro", un servicio especial de sobregiro para cuentas de cheques de Alpine Bank.

¿Qué es Privilegio de sobregiro?

Standard Overdraft Privilege is an overdraft service requiring no action on your part. Tu monto límite de Privilegio de sobregiro se asignará automáticamente según el tipo de cuenta.

Tu límite de Privilegio de sobregiro puede estar disponible para cheques y otras transacciones que hagas con tu número de cuenta de cheques, pago de factura automático o pago recurrente con tarjeta de débito. Additionally, for consumer accounts, Alpine Bank offers, at your request, an Enhanced Overdraft Privilege service[3], in which we may authorize and pay ATM transfers or withdrawals or everyday debit card purchases using your available Overdraft Privilege limit.

¿Cómo funciona Privilegio de sobregiro?

As long as you maintain your account in good standing[1], Alpine Bank may approve your overdrafts within your currently available Overdraft Privilege limit. El hecho de que se pague tu sobregiro o no es discrecional, y nos reservamos el derecho de no pagar. Por lo general, no pagamos sobregiros si la cuenta no está al día. Consulta nuestro Acuerdo con el cliente de Privilegio de sobregiro para conocer todos los términos y las condiciones del servicio de Privilegio de sobregiro. Please note that the amount of the overdraft item plus our standard non-sufficient funds (NSF) paid item fee[2] will be deducted from your overdraft limit. No se aplicarán intereses sobre el saldo insuficiente de tu cuenta.

¿Cómo sé cuando estoy usando el límite de sobregiro?

Recibirás una notificación de sobregiro cada vez que se paguen partidas con el Privilegio de sobregiro disponible, lo que incluye los cargos. When balancing your checkbook, you will need to subtract the amount of each overdraft item, plus our standard NSF paid item fee for each overdraft item.[2]

¿Qué sucede si supero mi límite de Privilegio de sobregiro?

Los sobregiros que exceden el límite actual de Privilegio de sobregiro establecido pueden generar la devolución de esas partidas al beneficiario. The standard non-sufficient funds (NSF) returned item fee[2] will be charged per item (paid or returned) and assessed to your account. Se enviará un aviso de FI a la dirección que tenemos registrada en nuestros archivos en el que se te comunicarán nuestras medidas. Consumer accounts may be assessed up to, but not more than, $200.00 in non-sufficient funds fees per account per day.

¿Cuál es mi límite de Privilegio de sobregiro? Tengo dos cuentas de cheques. ¿Puedo obtener Privilegio de sobregiro en ambas?

Busca tu tipo de cuenta en el siguiente cuadro y toma nota del límite correspondiente. If you have multiple accounts for your household, it may be possible to have a limit on each eligible account.[1]

Cuenta de cheques Liberty $600
Cuenta de cheques Elite $1,200
Cuenta de cheques Golden Edge $1,200
Cuenta de cheques Pioneer Club $1,200
Mercado monetario Saver's Choice $1,200
Mercado monetario Investor's Choice $1,200
Mercado monetario Apex $1,200

¿En cuánto tiempo tengo que devolver mi Privilegio de sobregiro?

Deberías hacer todo lo posible por tener un saldo positivo en tu cuenta lo más pronto posible. No obstante, para evitar la posible suspensión del Privilegio de sobregiro, debes tener un saldo positivo en tu cuenta al cierre del día, durante al menos 1 día hábil, una vez cada 30 días calendario. Si tu cuenta tiene un saldo positivo al cierre del día durante este periodo, tu límite puede estar nuevamente disponible el primer día hábil después de registrado el saldo positivo. Si no puedes tener un saldo positivo en tu cuenta en un plazo de 30 días calendario después de la creación del saldo negativo, recibirás una carta de Alpine Bank en la que se te informará la situación y las opciones que tienes disponibles. Si, a partir de allí, tu cuenta no llega a tener un saldo positivo, podemos suspender el Privilegio de sobregiro y devolver las partidas adicionales.

¿Cuánto cuesta mi Privilegio de sobregiro?

Este servicio no tiene ningún costo adicional a menos que lo uses. You will be charged our standard NSF paid item fee[2] for each NSF item paid that was by check, in-person withdrawals, automatic payment (ACH) transaction, recurring debit card payment, or any other debit transaction made using your checking account. Additionally, for consumer accounts, if you have requested us to do so, Alpine Bank may authorize and pay ATM transfers or withdrawals and everyday debit card purchases[3] and charge our standard NSF paid item fee[2] for each item. To help you manage your account, the total fees you have paid for NSF items (both paid and returned) during the current month and for the year to date will be reflected on your monthly checking statement in accordance with federal regulations.

¿De qué maneras puedo acceder a mi límite de Privilegio de sobregiro? ¿Estará reflejado mi límite en el saldo que reciba?

El siguiente cuadro muestra las diferentes maneras en que puedes acceder a tu límite de Privilegio de sobregiro e indica si este límite estará reflejado o no en el saldo establecido. El Privilegio de sobregiro mejorado solo está disponible si el Privilegio de sobregiro estándar de la cuenta está activo.

¿De qué otras maneras puedo cubrir los sobregiros en Alpine Bank?

La mejor manera de evitar los cargos y los sobregiros es gestionar la cuenta de manera responsable para que no quede al descubierto.

OVERDRAFT PRIVILEGE CUSTOMER
TERMS AND CONDITIONS

General Terms:

An insufficient balance can result from several events, including, but not limited to: (1) the payment of checks, electronic funds transfers or other withdrawal requests; (2) payments authorized by you; (3) the return of unpaid items deposited by you; (4) bank service charges as disclosed in your Truth in Savings disclosure and the Fee Schedule; or (5) the deposit of items which, according to the bank's Funds Availability Policy (Your Ability to Withdraw Funds), are treated as not yet available or finally paid. No tenemos la obligación de pagar ninguna partida que se presentó para cobro si la cuenta no tiene fondos suficientes.

Account Management and Termination:

Si mantienes tu cuenta al día, podemos aprobar tus partidas de sobregiro dentro de tu límite actual de Privilegio de sobregiro disponible a modo de cortesía no contractual. For Overdraft Privilege availability, your account is considered to be in good standing if you demonstrate responsible account management such as (1) making regular deposits to bring your account to a positive balance, for at least 1 business day, at least once every 30 calendar days (including the payment of all bank fees and charges); (2) there are no legal orders (including bankruptcies), garnishments, levies or liens against your account and 3) you have no outstanding indebtedness past due or in default to Alpine Bank on any other account relationships; if you fail to meet any of the above stated requirements, we reserve the right to terminate the Overdraft Privilege service on your account until your account is once again in good standing. Además, en función de la revisión que hacemos del manejo de tu cuenta, si determinamos que usas Privilegio de sobregiro como una línea de crédito regular al generar sobregiros excesivos, podemos suspender el privilegio sin previo aviso.

Regardless of account standing, Alpine may/may not pay an item and may/may not assess a Nonsufficient Funds (NSF) fee for each item.

El servicio de Privilegio de sobregiro no debe considerarse como un incentivo para dejar al descubierto tu cuenta. Te alentamos a gestionar tus finanzas con responsabilidad al revisar todos los avisos de tu cuenta y los estados de cuenta periódicos apenas los recibas, al ingresar todas las partidas en tu registro de cheques y al conciliar tu(s) cuenta(s) regularmente.

Payment of Items:

The order items post to your account is further explained in the previous subsection, "Payment order of items." En el desarrollo normal de las actividades comerciales, nuestra metodología es pagar primero las transacciones electrónicas y luego los cheques siguiendo el orden de los números de serie. Nos reservamos el derecho de modificar el orden de pago sin aviso si sospechamos que hubo fraude o alguna actividad posiblemente ilegal que afecta tu cuenta. Also, please be aware that the order of item payment may create multiple overdrafts during a single banking day for which you will be charged our standard NSF item fee[2] for each overdraft item (paid or returned). Puedes renunciar al Privilegio de sobregiro en cualquier momento, pero queda bajo tu responsabilidad cualquier deuda que tengas con Alpine Bank al momento de la cancelación. Normalmente, no aprobamos el pago de sobregiros que superen el monto de Privilegio de sobregiro predeterminado o actual que se asignó a tu tipo de cuenta. So as not to exceed your limit, when reconciling your account, please note that the amount of the overdraft item, plus the bank's standard NSF paid item fee[2] will be deducted from the overdraft limit. Podemos negarnos, por cualquier motivo, a nuestra discreción, a cubrir tus sobregiros, aunque pudiéramos haber pagado partidas en otras ocasiones en el pasado. Se te notificará por correo sobre cualquier partida por fondos insuficientes pagada o devuelta que tengas; no obstante, no tenemos la obligación de notificarte antes de que paguemos o devolvamos alguna partida.

Ten en cuenta que tu límite de Privilegio de sobregiro puede estar disponible para cada partida pagada dentro del límite creado mediante cheques, retiros en un cajero humano, transacciones de pago automático (ACH), pagos de facturas automáticos o pago recurrente con tarjeta de débito. Also, we may authorize and pay ATM transfers or withdrawals and everyday debit card purchases using your limit[3]. The Overdraft Privilege limit will not be included in the balance provided during an inquiry.

Payment obligation:

The amount of any indebtedness owed to Alpine Bank, which may include our standard NSF paid/returned item fees[2], shall be due and payable upon demand, but if no demand is made, no later than 30 calendar days after the creation of the insufficient balance. If there is an overdraft item paid by us on an account with more than one owner on the signature card, each owner and agent, if applicable, drawing/presenting the item(s) creating the insufficient balance, shall be jointly and severally liable for such overdraft plus our standard NSF paid/returned item fee[2].

Limitations:

Overdraft Privilege is a non-contractual courtesy that is available to individually/jointly owned accounts in good standing for personal or business use. Alpine Bank se reserva el derecho de limitar la participación a una cuenta por unidad familiar o negocio y de interrumpir este servicio sin aviso previo. Please refer to "Terms and Conditions - Understanding and Avoiding Overdraft and Nonsufficient Funds (NSF Fees)" for additional details and limitations concerning overdrafts.

  1. Please refer to the Overdraft Privilege Customer Terms and Conditions for additional details.
  2. $15 for overdraft items of $15.00 or less, and $38 for overdraft items exceeding $15.00.
  3. Enhanced Overdraft Privilege service will be made available for ATM or everyday debit card transactions upon your request.
    Llama al (800)551-6098 o visita una de nuestras sucursales para acordar tu cobertura para el cajero automático o la tarjeta de débito de uso diario.
    El Privilegio de sobregiro mejorado solo está disponible si el Privilegio de sobregiro estándar de la cuenta está activo.

Electronic Disclosures and Notices

Electronic Funds Transfers

SUS DERECHOS Y RESPONSABILIDADES  

Indicated below are types of Electronic Fund Transfers we are capable of handling, some of which may not apply to your account. Please read this disclosure carefully because it tells you your rights and obligations for the transactions listed. Guarde este aviso para consultarlo cuando lo necesite.

Electronic Fund Transfers Initiated By Third Parties. Usted puede autorizar a un tercero a iniciar transferencias electrónicas de fondos entre su cuenta y la cuenta de dicho tercero. Estas transferencias para hacer o recibir pagos pueden ser una situación por única vez o pueden ser recurrentes según lo que usted indique. Estas transferencias pueden usar la Cámara de Compensación Automatizada (ACH) u otra red de pagos. Su autorización para que un tercero haga estas transferencias puede otorgarse de diferentes maneras. Por ejemplo, su autorización para convertir un cheque a una transferencia electrónica de fondos o pagar de manera electrónica un cargo por cheque devuelto puede darse cuando un comercio lo notifique y usted decida seguir adelante con la transacción (en general, en el punto de compra, el comercio tendrá un cartel e imprimirá el aviso en un recibo). In all cases, these third party transfers will require you to provide the third party with your account number and bank information. Esta información está en su cheque y en las boletas de depósito o retiro. Thus, you should only provide your bank and account information (whether over the phone, the Internet, or via some other method) to trusted third parties whom you have authorized to initiate these electronic fund transfers. Algunos ejemplos de estas transferencias incluyen, entre otros:

  • Créditos preautorizados. You may make arrangements for certain direct deposits to be accepted into your checking or savings account(s).
  • Pagos preautorizados. You may make arrangements to pay certain recurring bills from your checking or savings account(s).
  • Conversión electrónica de cheque. Usted puede autorizar a un comercio u otro beneficiario a hacer un pago electrónico por única vez desde su cuenta de cheques usando la información que aparece en su cheque para pagar compras o facturas.
  • Cargo electrónico por cheque devuelto. You may authorize a merchant or other payee to initiate an electronic funds transfer to collect a charge in the event a check is returned for insufficient funds.

Please also see Limitations on frequency of transfers section regarding limitations that apply to savings accounts.

Telephone Transfers - types of transfers and frequency limitations - You may access your account by telephone at 1-888-4-ALPINE (425-7463) using your personal identification number, a touch tone phone, and your account numbers, to:

    • certificates of deposit

Please also see Limitations on frequency of transfers section regarding limitations that apply to telephone transfers.

ATM Transfers - types of transfers, dollar limitations, and charges - You may access your account(s) by ATM using your Alpine Bank Visa® Debit Card and personal identification number, to:

  • get cash withdrawals from checking account(s) with a debit card

    • checking account(s)
    • savings account(s)

Some of these services may not be available at all terminals.

ATM Operator/Network Fees. When you use an ATM not owned by us, you may be charged a fee by the ATM operator.

Please also see Limitations on frequency of transfers section regarding limitations that apply to ATM transfers.

Types of Alpine Bank Visa® Debit Card Point-of-Sale Transactions - You may access your checking account(s) to purchase goods (in person, online, or by phone), pay for services (in person, online, or by phone), get cash from a merchant, if the merchant permits, or from a participating financial institution, and do anything that a participating merchant will accept.

Point-of-Sale Transactions - dollar limitations and charges - Using your card:

  • you may not exceed $5,000.00 in transactions per 24 hours
  • you may not exceed $250.00 in transactions per 24 hours per Youth Checking account

Please also see Limitations on frequency of transfers section regarding limitations that apply to debit card transactions.

Currency Conversion and International Transactions. When you use your Alpine Bank Visa® Debit Card 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 either a rate selected by Visa from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which rate may vary from the rate Visa itself receives, or the government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date. The conversion rate in effect on the processing date may differ from the rate in effect on the transaction date or posting date.

Visa USA charges us a 1% International Service Assessment on all international transactions regardless of whether there is a currency conversion. We pass this international transaction fee on to you. An international transaction is a transaction where the country of the merchant is outside the USA.

Advisory Against Illegal Use. You agree not to use your card(s) for illegal gambling or other illegal purpose. Display of a payment card logo by, for example, an online merchant does not necessarily mean that transactions are lawful in all jurisdictions in which the cardholder may be located.

Non-Visa Debit Transaction Processing. We have enabled non-Visa debit transaction processing. This means you may use your Alpine Bank Visa® Debit Card on a PIN-Debit Network* (a non-Visa network) without using a PIN.

The provisions of your agreement with us relating only to Visa transactions are not applicable to non-Visa transactions. For example, the additional limits on liability (sometimes referred to as Visa's zero-liability program) and the streamlined error resolution procedures offered on Visa debit card transactions are not applicable to transactions processed on a PIN-Debit Network.

*Visa Rules generally define PIN-Debit Network as a non-Visa debit network that typically authenticates transactions by use of a personal identification number (PIN) but that is not generally known for having a card program.

Please see your cardholder agreement for additional information relating to the use of your card.

Health Savings Accounts (HSA). We permit some electronic fund transfers to and/or from your HSA. The electronic fund transfers we permit are offered for the convenience of managing your HSA. However, electronically moving funds to or from your HSA – for example, depositing more than the allowable amount, or getting additional cash back on an HSA debit card transaction – can raise a variety of tax concerns. As a result, before electronically accessing any account you may have with us, it is a good practice to make sure you are using the correct access device (such as a card) or accessing the appropriate account for the transaction. Also, it is your responsibility to ensure the contributions, distributions, and other actions related to your HSA, comply with the law, including federal tax law. As always, we recommend consulting a legal or tax professional if you have any questions about managing your HSA. The terms of this disclosure are intended to work in conjunction with the HSA Custodial Booklet provided to you earlier. In the event of a conflict, the terms of the HSA Custodial Booklet control. You understand that your HSA is intended to be used for payment of qualified medical expenses. It is your responsibility to satisfy any tax liability resulting from use of your HSA for any purpose other than payment or reimbursement of qualified medical expenses. We do not monitor the purpose of any transaction to or from your HSA. Nor are we responsible for ensuring your eligibility for making contributions or ensuring withdrawals are used for payment or reimbursement of qualified medical expenses. Refer to your HSA Agreement for more information relating to the use of your HSA.

Limitations on frequency of transfers. Además de las limitaciones para transferencias descritas en cualquier otro documentos, si las hubiera, se aplican las siguientes limitaciones:

  • Transfers from a money market or savings account to another account or to third parties by means of preauthorized or automatic transfer, telephone order or instruction, mobile device, computer transfer or by check, draft, debit card, or similar order to third parties are limited to six per monthly statement.

CARGOS

  • We do not charge for preauthorized payments from any type of account.

Except as indicated elsewhere, we do not charge for these electronic fund transfers.

Cuando usa un cajero automático que no nos pertenece quizás se le cobre un cargo cobrado por el operador del cajero automático o cualquier red que se use (y quizás se le cobre un cargo por una consulta de saldo incluso si no completa una transferencia de fondos).

DOCUMENTACIÓN

  • Terminal transfers. You can get a receipt at the time you make a transfer to or from your account using an automated teller machine or point-of-sale terminal. However, you may not get a receipt if the amount of the transfer is $15 or less.
  • Créditos preautorizados. 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 800-551-6098 to find out whether or not the deposit has been made.
  • Periodic statements.

Si nos llama por teléfono, también podríamos pedirle que haga su solicitud por escrito y nos la envíe dentro de los 14 días de su llamada.
         Please refer to our separate fee schedule for the amount we will charge you for each stop-payment order you give.

    Notice of varying amounts. Si el monto de estos pagos regulares pudiera llegar a variar, la persona a la que pagará se lo informará 10 días antes de cada pago, cuándo se hará el pago y de cuánto será. (También tiene la opción de recibir este aviso solamente cuando el pago difiera por más de cierta cantidad con respecto al pago anterior, o cuando el monto esté fuera de ciertos límites que usted establezca).

  • Liability for failure to stop payment of preauthorized transfer. Si nos pide que suspendamos uno de estos pagos 3 días hábiles o más antes de la fecha para la que está programada la transferencia y no lo hacemos, nosotros seremos responsables por sus pérdidas o daños.

RESPONSABILIDAD DE LA INSTITUCIÓN FINANCIERA

Liability for failure to make transfers. Si no completamos una transferencia a o desde su cuenta a tiempo o por el monto correcto conforme a nuestro acuerdo con usted, nosotros seremos responsables por sus pérdidas o daños. Sin embargo, existen algunas excepciones. No seremos responsables, por ejemplo:

Your Ability to Withdraw Funds

This policy statement applies to "transaction" accounts. Transaction accounts, in general, are accounts which permit an unlimited number of payments to third persons and an unlimited number of telephone and preauthorized transfers to other accounts of yours with us. Checking accounts are the most common transaction accounts. Feel free to ask us whether any of your other accounts might also be under this policy.

Our policy is to make funds from your cash and check deposits available to you on the first business day after the day we receive your deposit. Electronic direct deposits will be available on the day we receive the deposit. Once the funds are available, you can withdraw them in cash and we will use the funds to pay checks that you have written.

Please remember that even after we have made funds available to you, and you have withdrawn the funds, you are still responsible for checks you deposit that are returned to us unpaid and for any other problems involving your deposit.

For determining the availability of your deposits, every day is a business day, except Saturdays, Sundays, and federal holidays. If you make a deposit before closing time on a business day that we are open, we will consider that day to be the day of your deposit. However, if you make a deposit after closing time or on a day we are not open, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day we are open.

LONGER DELAYS MAY APPLY

Case-by-case delays. In some cases, we will not make all of the funds that you deposit by check available to you on the first business day after the day of your deposit. Depending on the type of check that you deposit, funds may not be available until the second business day after the day of your deposit. The first $225 of your deposits, however, will be available on the first business day.

If we are not going to make all of the funds from your deposit available on the first business day, we will notify you at the time you make your deposit. We will also tell you when the funds will be available. If your deposit is not made directly to one of our employees, or if we decide to take this action after you have left the premises, we will mail you the notice by the day after we receive your deposit.

If you will need the funds from a deposit right away, you should ask us when the funds will be available.

Safeguard exceptions. In addition, funds you deposit by check may be delayed for a longer period under the following circumstances:

We believe a check you deposit will not be paid.

You deposit checks totaling more than $5,525 on any one day.

You redeposit a check that has been returned unpaid.

You have overdrawn your account repeatedly in the last six months.

There is an emergency, such as failure of computer or communications equipment.

We will notify you if we delay your ability to withdraw funds for any of these reasons, and we will tell you when the funds will be available. They will generally be available no later than the seventh business day after the day of your deposit.

SPECIAL RULES FOR NEW ACCOUNTS

If you are a new customer, the following special rules will apply during the first 30 days your account is open.

Funds from electronic direct deposits to your account will be available on the day we receive the deposit. Funds from deposits of cash, wire transfers, and the first $5,525 of a day's total deposits of cashier's, certified, teller's, traveler's, and federal, state and local government checks will be available on the first business day after the day of your deposit if the deposit meets certain conditions. For example, the checks must be payable to you (and you may have to use a special deposit slip). The excess over $5,525 will be available on the ninth business day after the day of your deposit. If your deposit of these checks (other than a U.S. Treasury check) is not made in person to one of our employees, the first $5,525 will not be available until the second business day after the day of your deposit.

Funds from all other check deposits will be available on the seventh business day after the day of your deposit.

Substitute Checks and your Rights

As our customer we think it's important for you to know about substitute checks. The following Substitute Check Disclosure provides information about substitute checks and your rights.

What is a substitute check?

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 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 contact us at:

Alpine Bank
Attn: Deposit Operations
400 7th Street South
Rifle, CO 81650
800-551-6098

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 or the following information to help us identify the substitute check: the check number, the amount of the check, the date of the check, and the name of the person to whom you wrote the check.

Truth in Savings Disclosures

We reserve the right to require not less than seven days' notice in writing before each withdrawal from an interest-bearing account other than a time deposit.

Withdrawals from a time account prior to maturity or prior to any notice period may be restricted and may be subject to penalty. See your notice of penalty for early withdrawal.

NSF fees may be imposed for overdrafts created by checks, in-person withdrawals, ATM withdrawals and withdrawals that occur by other electronic means whether paid or returned. Refer to Fee Schedule for exact amount.

Early withdrawal penalties (a penalty will be imposed for withdrawals before maturity)

  • The interest rate that we will use to calculate the interest forfeiture will be the rate at which the time deposit is currently earning interest.
  • If your account has an original maturity of one year or less:
    The fee imposed will equal 30 days interest on the amount withdrawn. If the withdrawal is made within the first six days after the deposit, we may impose a penalty of 7 days interest, on the amount withdrawn subject to penalty.
  • If your account has an original maturity of 18 months - 4 years:
    The fee imposed will equal 90 days interest on the amount withdrawn. If the withdrawal is made within the first six days after the deposit, we may impose a penalty of 7 days interest, on the amount withdrawn.
  • If your account has an original maturity of 5 years:

In certain circumstances such as the death or incompetence of an owner of this account, the law permits, or in some cases requires, the waiver of the early withdrawal penalty. Other exceptions may also apply, for example, if this is part of an IRA or other tax-deferred savings plan.
