Online Banking Services In addition to this agreement, you may have a separate agreement for each of your accounts with us. Each account is still subject to those same agreements. If there is any conflict between this agreement and the deposit account agreement regarding the account, then the deposit account agreement takes precedence. Conversely, if there is a conflict between this agreement and the deposit account agreement regarding online banking, then this agreement takes precedence.
Online Banking and Authorized Signers If an account is owned by more than one person, or has more than one Authorized Signer, each person individually has the right to provide us with instructions, make any decision, obtain any information or make any request associated with the account and related online banking (subject to the extent of the terms and conditions of the account). We may rely and act on those instructions of any such person without having liability to you. All transactions that an Authorized Signer performs on an account, including those which you may not be aware of or intend to do are considered transactions authorized by you. You are responsible for those transactions and will not hold The Bank of Commerce liable for them.
If you make someone an Authorized Signer on an account and they enroll in the online banking service, we may consider them an Authorized Signer in our own discretion. If you notify us that an Authorized Signer is no longer authorized, you must give us an appropriate length of time to act on the notice. Only after those times will any transactions be considered unauthorized. Business owners may delegate authority to access the system to other employees in their business and may do so, in accordance with the requirements and procedures we provide to you from time to time. We may discontinue offering this option at any time without prior notice.
Access to Services You will gain access to your Online Accounts through the use of your Internet-enabled device, your ISP, your Password and your User ID. You may access your Online Accounts 24 hours a day, seven (7) days a week. However, availability of the Services may be suspended for brief periods of time for purposes of maintenance, updating and revising the software.

Electronic Bill Payment Authorization I AUTHORIZE The Bank of Commerce to post payment transactions generated by PC or other electronic devices, from the Bill Paying Service to the account indicated on the form being sent electronically. I understand that I am in full control of my account. If at any time I decide to discontinue service, I will provide written notification to The Bank of Commerce. My use of the Bill Payment Service signifies that I have read the terms and conditions of the Internet Banking Disclosure and Agreement which have been provided to me electronically by The Bank of Commerce.
I UNDERSTAND that I am responsible for any loss or penalty that I may incur due to the lack of sufficient funds or other conditions that may prevent the withdrawal of funds from my account.
The Online Bill Payment Service permits you to use your Internet enabled device to direct payments from your designated online Bill Payment Account to third parties you wish to pay. Any payments you wish to make through this Service must be payable in U.S. dollars to a payee located in the continental United States. We reserve the right to restrict types of payees to whom payments may be made using the Service from time to time.
Scheduling Payments Funds must be available in your Bill Payment Account on the scheduled payment date.

You may choose to schedule payments to recur in the same amount at regular weekly, monthly, or semi-monthly intervals. When you create a new payee in the Bill Payment Service, it takes two (2) business days to set up the payee to receive payments. You should schedule a payment to a new payee at least ten (10) business days before any payment due date, to allow us time to set up the payee and verify information about your account with the payee.
For all subsequent payments, you agree to allow at least three to five business days between the date you schedule a payment to be initiated and the payment due date (that is, the due date shown on your invoice or provided in your agreement with the payee, not taking into account any applicable grace period). If the payment is an Automatic Clearing House (ACH) electronic payment, it will take up to four (4) business days to reach the payee. However, if the company or person that you are paying cannot accept an electronic payment, the Bill Payment Service will send a check that may take up to ten (10) business days. If you do not follow these time frames, you will be fully responsible for all late fees, finance charges or other actions taken by the payee. If you schedule your payment and follow all instructions provided, but the payment is not received by the payee in a timely manner, the Bank will work with the payee on your behalf to reverse any late fees or charges.

Unauthorized Transfers (a) Consumer liability. (1) Generally. Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your card and/or code has been lost or stolen, or if you believe that an electronic fund transfer has been made without your permission using information from your check. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. (The Bank of Commerce 208-523-2020, 800-477-9193 or MasterCard direct 800-500-1044). You could lose all the money in your account, plus your maximum Ready Reserve Line of Credit. If you tell us within two business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your card and/or code, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your card and/or code without your permission.
If you do NOT tell us within two business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your card and/or code, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your card and/or code without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.
Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, including those made by card, code or other means, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within 60 days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 60 days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time period.
(2) Additional Limits on Liability for Debit MasterCard® You will not be liable for any unauthorized transactions using your Debit MasterCard® if: (i) you can demonstrate that you have exercised reasonable care in safeguarding your card from the risk of loss or theft, and (ii) upon becoming aware of a loss theft, you promptly report the loss or theft to us.
(b) Contact in event of unauthorized transfer. If you believe your card and/or code has been lost or stolen, call or write us at the telephone number or address listed in this disclosure.

Error Resolution Notice In case of errors or questions about your electronic transfers, please call or write us at the contact information provided below, as soon as you can.

If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days (90 days if the transfer involved a new account, a point-of-sale transaction, or a foreign-initiated transfer) 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. Your account is considered a new account for the first 30 days after the first deposit is made and none of the signers, have had within 30 calendar days before the account was established, another transaction account at the Bank.

You agree any check that has been transmitted through the Service will not be presented by you or any person again. This practice may result in service being discontinued or account closed. You agree to retain all checks that you have deposited through the Service for at least 30 business days and, following the 30 day retention period, you agree to securely dispose of the paper check in a manner which will ensure the check will not be presented again. You will promptly provide any retained check, or a sufficient copy of the front and back of the check, to the Bank as requested to aid in the clearing and collection process, to resolve claims by third parties with respect to any check or check image, or for the Bank’s audit purposes. If you fail to promptly provide the original check or a reasonable copy of the check in response to a request by us, you agree to request a new check for deposit from the check’s originator. If you fail to provide any copy of a check and cannot obtain a new check from the originator, you agree that we are authorized to debit your account for the amount of the check in question if we deem this action necessary. You will be solely responsible for any losses incurred as a result of the failure to promptly provide a retained check or replacement check in response to our request.
Returned Deposits Any credit which we deposit into your account immediately following a deposit initiated by you will be a provisional credit. If a check that you deposit using the Service is returned or charged back on your account, it will be deducted in full from your account, along with any fees that are incurred due to the check’s rejection as described in our fee schedule and the Terms and Conditions of Your Account. We are not responsible for any losses incurred as a result of deposits returned on your account.
Funds Availability You agree that items transmitted using the Service are not subject to the funds availability requirements of Regulation CC. In most cases funds confirmed as received before 5:00 pm (Mountain Time) of business on a business day will be credited to your account within 24 hours of receipt. Funds confirmed received after close of business, and confirmed received on holidays or days that are not business days will be credited to your account within 24 hours of the following business day. Items you deposit today will not appear within online banking and mobile banking until the following business day.
Mobile Deposit Security You will complete each deposit promptly. If you are unable to complete your deposit promptly, you will ensure that your mobile device remains securely in your possession until the deposit has been completed. It is your responsibility to establish and maintain procedures to safeguard against unauthorized deposits. You will notify us immediately by telephone along with written confirmation if you learn of any loss or theft of original checks. You will ensure the safety and integrity of original checks from the time of receipt until the time of destruction. If warranted in our reasonable judgment, we reserve the right to monitor your deposit activity, and you agree to cooperate with us to permit such monitoring, to confirm that you have satisfied your obligations under this Agreement.
Cooperation with Investigations You agree to cooperate with us in the investigation of unusual transactions, poor quality transmissions, and resolution of customer claims, including by providing, upon request and without further cost, any originals or copies of items in your possession and your records relating to items and transmissions.
