D. Dollar amount of Transfer Transactions
You may not make transfers in excess of limits prescribed by the bank for security purposes and/or in compliance with network operating rules.

Transfers from a Funding Account may be made up to a daily aggregate dollar limit of $1,500.
Transfer limits applicable to Recipients are governed by the Recipient’s Financial Institution’s transfer service agreements.
We reserve the right to change from time to time the dollar amount of transfers you are permitted to make using the SPIN Service. For example, in the event that your use of the SPIN Service has been suspended and reinstated, you understand and agree that your use of the SPIN Service thereafter may be subject to lower dollar amount limitations than would otherwise be permitted by us. All transfer limits are subject to temporary reductions to protect the security of customer accounts and/or the SPIN Service.

E. Transfer Transactions subject to the rules of the Funding Account
All SPIN Transactions are subject to the rules and regulations governing your Funding Account. You agree not to initiate any payments from an account that are not allowed under the rules or regulations applicable to that account, including, without limitation, rules or regulations designed to prevent the transfer of funds in violation of OFAC regulations. You agree that any SPIN Transaction to a Recipient’s account which is not with a Participating Financial Institution will also be governed by the NACHA Operating Rules and any applicable card network rules (e.g. Visa or Mastercard).
F. Transfer Transaction descriptions
We may, in our sole discretion, permit you to add a description or comment concerning the SPIN Transaction that will be transmitted to the recipient. You agree that if we permit you to add a description or comment concerning the payment to your recipient that you will not include inappropriate or abusive language, messages or content in the description or comment. You agree that we may monitor the contents of the description or comment, and may delete or edit the message if we believe any of the content is inappropriate or abusive, in our sole and absolute discretion.
G. Failure or rejection of Transfer Transactions
We do not make any representation or warranty that any particular SPIN Transaction can be completed, or that it can be completed within a particular period of time. Any estimate we may provide concerning the completion date for the SPIN Transaction is only an estimate, and is not binding on us. You understand and agree that we have no control over the actions of Recipient’s, or of other financial institutions (including Recipient’s Financial Institutions), that may prevent a SPIN Transaction from being completed, or may delay its completion. You understand and agree that we may not be able to complete a SPIN Transaction if:
• the Recipient does not enroll in or register with the SPIN Service;
• the Recipient does not complete the necessary steps in provided needed information to complete the transfer; or,
• the Recipient does not register with the SPIN Service the specific email address or telephone number you have provided to us for them.
Upon learning that a SPIN Transaction to transfer funds from your Funding Account to a Recipient cannot be completed for any reason, we may make a reasonable effort to complete the payment again. If the fund transfer is not completed, we may try to notify you to contact your intended recipient but are not required to do so.
If you do not have enough money in your Funding Account to make a fund transfer, we may reject your request to initiate the fund transfer.
We reserve the right to decline or cancel any payment instructions or orders or to carry out change or cancellation requests. We may, in our sole discretion, decline to initiate or complete a SPIN Transaction for any reason. We may, in our sole discretion, accept instructions from any Recipient or a Recipient’s Financial Institution to block your attempts to use the SPIN Service to initiate SPIN Transactions with that Recipient or customers of that institution.
H. Authorization for fund transfer and suspense of funds
You agree that each payment instruction you give us is an authorization to make a funds transfer on your behalf. You authorize us to withdraw the funds from your Funding Account immediately upon receiving your instruction for the SPIN Transaction and to place the funds in a suspense account pending completion of the SPIN Transaction. You understand and agree that in the case of a SPIN Transaction to a person who has not yet enrolled in the SPIN Service, or if your Funding Account has been open for less than thirty days, we may hold your funds in the suspense account for up to fifteen business days before either returning the funds to you or sending them to the recipient.
You also agree that the Member’s Financial Institution receiving the funds for a SPIN Transaction may hold those funds for a reasonable period of time while attempting to identify a Deposit Account for a Recipient who has either:
• not yet enrolled in the SPIN Service;
• not yet identified a Deposit Account, or
• closed the recipient’s prior Deposit Account but still has other accounts open with the Recipient’s Financial Institution.
You understand that the Recipient’s Financial Institution receiving the funds may require a Recipient to manually accept each funds transfer you send to the Recipient. If the Recipient does not accept the funds transfer within the time frame set by the Recipient’s Financial Institution, the funds will be returned to you. You understand and agree that we have no control over whether or not the Recipient’s Financial Institution will require manual acceptance, or how long the Recipient’s Financial Institution will hold the funds before returning them.
You authorize us to act as your agent in receiving and processing any return of funds as we deem appropriate.
I. No right to cancel or stop a Transfer Transaction
Transfer Transactions that are in process cannot be cancelled or stopped. You agree that you, and not we, will be responsible for resolving any payment dispute with any Recipient to whom you send money through a SPIN Transaction.
11. Electronic Fund Transfer Provisions applicable to consumers
A. Applicability
The provisions in this Section 13 apply only to electronic fund transfers that debit or credit a consumer's checking, savings, or other asset account and are subject to the Federal Reserve Board's Regulation E (an "EFT"). The terms and conditions applicable to EFTs that debit or credit a brokerage account are set forth in your brokerage account agreement, and not in this Addendum. The Bank may, when applicable, rely on any exceptions to the provisions in this Section 13 that are contained in Regulation E. All terms not otherwise defined in this Addendum which are defined in Regulation E will have the same meaning when used in this Section 13.
B. Unauthorized EFTs
You must tell us AT ONCE if you believe that your password has been lost or stolen, or if you believe that an EFT has been made without your permission. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit).
C. In case of errors or questions about your EFTs
In case of errors or questions about your EFT, telephone us at the number on the back of your card or the number listed on the statement for your account, as soon as you can, if you think your statement is wrong or if you need more information about a transfer listed on the statement.
We must hear from you no later than 60 days after the date we send the first statement on which the problem or error appeared:
• Tell us your name and account number (if any)
• Describe the error or the transfer you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information
• Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error
If you tell us orally, we may require that you send your complaint or question in writing within 10 Business Days. We will determine whether an error occurred within 10 Business Days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time to conduct our investigation, however, we will notify you of our need for an extension, which may take up to 45 days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 Business Days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 Business Days, we may not credit your account.
For errors involving new accounts or foreign-initiated transactions, we may take up to 90 days to investigate your complaint or question. We will tell you the results within three Business Days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, you will be notified.
D. Documentation
You have the right to find out whether an EFT was credited or debited to your account. We will send you a monthly statement if there is an EFT in a particular month unless you have opted out of receiving such documents.
14. Transfer Transaction history
Your SPIN Transactions will appear in the online transaction history and in the periodic statements for your Funding Account.
15. Your Responsibility for Errors
You understand that we must rely on the information provided by you and you authorize us to act on any instruction, which has been or reasonably appears to have been sent by you, to submit fund transfer instructions on your behalf. You understand that financial institutions receiving the fund transfer instructions may rely on such information. We are not obliged to take any further steps to confirm or authenticate such instructions and will act on them without getting further confirmation. You agree to accept full responsibility for losses resulting from any of your errors, duplication, ambiguities, or fraud in the information that you provide. You agree not to impersonate any person or use a name that you are not authorized to use. If any information you provide is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, without limiting other remedies, we reserve the right to recover from you any costs or losses incurred as a direct or indirect result of the inaccurate or incomplete information.
16. Miscellaneous
Subject to the terms of this Addendum, the SPIN Services are generally available 24 hours a day, seven days a week with the exception of outages for maintenance and circumstances beyond our or any authorized third party’s control. Live customer service generally will be available Monday through Friday during regular bank hours of operations, excluding US bank holidays.
