  • Notice of varying amounts. If these regular payments may vary in around, the person you are going to pay will tell you, 1O days before each payment, when it will be made and how much it will be. (You may choose instead to get this notice only when the payment would differ by more than a certain amount from the previous payment, or when the amount would fall outside certain limits that you set.)
    Liability for failure to stop payment of preauthorized transfer. If you order us to stop one of these payments 3 business days or more before the transfer is scheduled, and we do not do so, we will be liable for your losses or damages.

The following limitations may be applicable to your accounts, except as provided by law:

Liability for Unauthorized MasterCard Debit Card Transactions on Cards Issued to Certain Consumers and Small Businesses. The zero liability limit described below only applies to a United States-issued MasterCard branded debit card issued to: (I) a natural person, or (ii) a business or other entity only if the card is issued under a "small business" program described on MasterCard's website at www.mastercardbusiness.com. The zero liability limit described below does not apply if you are a business or an entity of any sort (corporation, limited liability company, partnership, etc.) unless the card issued to you is a "small business" card described above. The zero-liability limit described below does not apply until your identity is registered by or on behalf of the card issuer. Under MasterCard's zero liability policy as described in the MasterCard Rules (as may be amended from time to time), the zero-liability limitation described below may not apply for other reasons.

Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your MasterCard debit card has been lost or stolen or if you believe any unauthorized transactions have been made using your MasterCard debit card. Your liability for unauthorized use of your debit card with the MasterCard logo will not exceed zero dollars ($0 .00) if the following conditions have been met: (I) you have exercised reasonable care in safeguarding your card from risk of loss or theft; and (ii) upon becoming aware of such loss or theft you promptly reported the loss or theft to us. If the conditions set forth above have not been met, you may be liable for unauthorized transactions to the extent allowed under applicable law (for example, see Liability for Unauthorized Transfers paragraph below). To notify us of lost or stolen cards, or of unauthorized transactions, call or write to us at the telephone number or address set forth in the Liability for Unauthorized Transfers paragraph below. This will help prevent unauthorized access to your account and minimize any inconvenience.

No more than 2 Master Money 111 Debit Cards per account will be issued.
Currency Conversion. If you effect a transaction with your Master Money 111 Debit Card in a currency other than US Dollars, MasterCard will convert the charge into a US Dollar amount. The MasterCard currency conversion procedure includes use of either a government-mandated exchange rate, or a wholesale exchange rate selected by MasterCard. The exchange rate MasterCard uses will be a rate in effect on the day the transaction is processed. This rate may differ from the rate in effect on the date of purchase or the date the transaction was posted to your account.

MasterCard is a registered trademark of MasterCard Worldwide or its subsidiaries in the United States.

In addition to the limitations set forth above, the following limitations may be applicable to your accounts:

Liability for Unauthorized Transfers. Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your card, ATM PIN, or POS card or PIN 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. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit). If you tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your card or code, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone used your card or code without your permission. If you do NOT tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your card or code, and we can prove that we could have stopped someone from using your card or code without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500 .00. Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, including those made by card code or other such means, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money lost after the sixty (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 periods. If you believe that your card or code has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, call (325) 446-2531, or write us at Junction National Bank O Box 65, Junction, TX 76849. You should also call the number or write this address if you believe a transfer has been made using the information from your check without your permission.

Illegal Transactions. You may not use your ATM, POS, or Deb it Card, or other access device for any illegal or unlawful transaction, and we may decline to authorize any transaction that we believe poses an undue risk of illegality or unlawfulness. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may collect on any debt arising out of any illegal or unlawful transaction.

Business Days. For purposes of these electronic funds transfer disclosures, our business days are Monday through Friday. Holidays are not included.

Stop Payments on ATM, POS, or Debit Card Transactions. You may not place a stop payment order on any ATM, POS, or debit card transaction.

Documentation.

  • Periodic Statement. You will get a monthly account statement from us on your checking account. For all other accounts you will get a monthly account statement from us, unless there are no transactions in those accounts in a particular month (in which case you will get a statement at least quarterly). You will get a quarterly statement from us on your savings account if this is the only account you maintain and the only possible electronic transfer to or from the account is a preauthorized deposit. If you have a passbook account, you may bring your passbook to us and we will record any direct deposits that we made to your account since the last time you brought in your passbook.
  • Terminal Receipt. You can get a receipt at the time you make a transfer to or from your account using one of our ATMs or a POS terminal. However, receipts for transactions of $15.00 or less may not always be available.
  • Direct Deposits. If you have arranged to have direct deposits made to your account at least once every sixty (60) days from the same person or company, you can call us at (325) 446-2531 to find out whether or not the deposit has been made.

Our Liability for Failure to Make Transfers. If we do not complete a transfer to or from your account on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will NOT be liable for instance:

  • If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer.
  • If the money in your account is subject to legal process or other claim restricting such transfer.
  • If the transfer would go over the credit limit on your overdraft line.
  • If the ATM where you are making the transfer does not have enough cash.
  • If the terminal or system was not working properly and you knew about the breakdown when you started the transfer.
  • If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood) prevent the transaction, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken.
  • There may be other exceptions stated in our agreement with you.

In Case of Errors or Questions About Your Electronic Transfers. Telephone us at (325) 446-2531, or write us at Junction National Bank 0 Box 65, Junction, TX 76849 as soon as you can, if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transfer listed on the statement or receipt. We must hear from you no later than sixty (60) days after we sent 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 us your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) business days.

We will determine whether an error occurred within ten (10) business days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to forty-five (45) days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within ten (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 ten (10) business days, we may not credit your account.

If a notice of error involves an electronic fund transfer that occurred within thirty (30) days after the first deposit to the account was made, the error involves a new account. For errors involving new accounts, point of sale debit card transactions, or foreign-initiated transactions, we may take up to ninety (90) days to investigate your complaint or question. For new accounts, we may take up to twenty (20) business days to credit your account for the amount you think is in error.

We will tell you the results within three (3) business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.

Confidentially. We will disclose information to third parties about your account or the transfers you make: To

  • complete transfers as necessary rye;
  • To verify the existence and condition of your account upon the request of a third party, such as a credit bureau or merchant; or to comply with government agency or court orders; or
  • If you give us your written permission.

Personal Identification Number (PIN). The ATM PIN or POS PIN issued to you is for your security purposes. The numbers are confidential and should not be disclosed to third parties or recorded on the card. You are responsible for safekeeping your PIN(s). You agree not to disclose or otherwise make your ATM PIN or POS PIN available to anyone not authorized to sign on your accounts.

Notices. All notices from us will be effective when we have mailed them or delivered them to your last known address on our records. Notices from you will be effective when received by us at the telephone number or the address specified in this Agreement. We reserve the right to change the terms and conditions upon which this service is offered. We will mail notice to you at least twenty-one (21) days before the effective date of any change, as required by law. Use of this service is subject to existing regulations governing your account and any future changes to those regulations.

Enforcement. In the event either party brings a legal action to enforce this Agreement or collect amounts owing as a result of any Account transaction, the prevailing party shall be entitled to reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, including fees on any appeal, subject to any limits under applicable law.

Termination of ATM and POS Services. You agree that we may terminate this Agreement and your use of the ATM Card or POS services, if: You

  • or any authorized user of your ATM PIN or POS card or PIN breach this or any other agreement with us;
  • We have reason to believe that there has been an unauthorized use of your ATM PIN or POS card or PIN;
  • We notify you or any other party to your account that we have cancelled or will cancel this Agreement. You or any other party to your account can terminate this Agreement by notifying us in writing.

Termination of service will be effective the first business day following receipt of your written notice. Termination of this Agreement will not affect the rights and responsibilities of the parties under this Agreement for transactions initiated before termination.

Other Provisions. There may be a delay between the time a deposit is made and when it will be available for withdrawal. You should review our Funds Availability Policy to determine the availability of the funds deposited at ATMs. We reserve the right to refuse any transaction which would draw upon insufficient funds, exceed a cred it limit, lower an account below a required balance, or otherwise require us to increase our required reserve on the account.

Electronic Fund Transfers Initiated by Third Parties. You may authorize a third party to initiate electronic fund transfers between your account and the third party's account. These transfers to make or receive payment may be one-time occurrences or may recur as directed by you. These transfers may use the Automated Clearing House (ACH) or other payments network. Your authorization to the third party to make these transfers can occur in a number of ways. For example, your authorization to convert a check to an electronic fun transfer or to electronically pay a returned check charge can occur when a merchant provides you with notice and you go forward with the transaction (typically, at the point of purchase, a merchant will post a sign and print the notice on a receipt). In all cases, these third-party transfers will require you to provide the third party with your account number and bank information. This information can be found on your check as well as on a deposit. 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 electronica fund transfers. Examples of these transfers include, but are not limited to: Preauthorized credits - You may make arrangements for certain direct deposits to be accepted into your checking or savings. Preauthorized payments - You may make arrangements to pay certain recurring bills from your checking.

ATM SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

As issuers of Automated Teller Machine (ATM) access devices, we have provided for your information a list of safety precautions regarding the use of automated teller machines. Please read the following safety precautions:

  • When using walk-up or drive-up unmanned automated teller machines (ATMs) -
    • Remain aware of surroundings, particularly at night, and exercise caution when withdrawing funds;
    • Inspect an ATM before use for possible tampering, or for the presence of an unauthorized attachment that could capture information from the access device or your Personal Identification Number (PIN);
    • Refrain from displaying cash and put it away as soon as the transaction is completed; and Wait to count cash until you are in the safety of a locked enclosure, such as your car or home.
  • Do not reveal your personal identification number (PIN) to others. Avoid allowing others to view your PIN entry into an ATM. Memorize your PIN and do not write your personal identification number or code on your ATM access device.
  • Safeguard and protect your access device. Treat it as if it were cash, and if it has an embedded chip, keep the device in a safety envelope to avoid undetected and unauthorized scanning.
  • Promptly report a lost or stolen access device and report all crimes to law enforcement officials immediately.
  • If you observe suspicious persons or circumstances while approaching or using an ATM, do not use the machine or, if you are in the middle of a transaction, cancel the transaction, take the access device, leave the area, and come back another time or use an ATM at another location.
  • Safeguard and securely dispose of ATM receipts.
  • Do not surrender information about your access device over the telephone or over the Internet, unless to a trusted merchant in a call or transaction initiated by you. Promptly review your monthly statement and compare ATM receipts against your statement to protect against ATM fraud.
  • If purchasing online with the access device, end transact ions by logging out of websites rather than simply closing the web browser to protect against Internet fraud.
