Non-Visa Debit  Transaction Processing.

We have enabled non-Visa debit transaction processing.  This means you may use your Visa-branded debit card on a PIN-Debit Network* (a non-Visa network) without using a PIN.

The non-Visa debit network(s) for which such transactions are enabled are: NYCE and PULSE Networks.

Examples of the types of actions that you may be required to make to initiate a Visa transaction on your Visa-branded debit card include signing a receipt, providing a card number over the phone or via the Internet, or swiping the card through a point-of-sale terminal.

Examples of the types of actions you may be required to make to initiate a transaction on a PIN-Debit Network include initiating a payment directly with the biller (possibly via telephone, Internet, or kiosk locations), responding to a logo displayed at a payment site and choosing to direct payment through that network, and having your identity verified using known information derived from an existing relationship with you instead of through use of 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 Visaís 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.

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

  • you may make no more than ten transactions per day (you may make no more than three refunds of purchases per day)

  • you may not exceed $500.00 in transactions per day (for security reasons, the limit is $260.00 per day off-line)

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

Limitations on frequency of transfers -  In addition to those limitations on transfers elsewhere described, if any, the following limitations apply:

Transfers from a money market account to another account or to third parties by preauthorization, automatic, or telephone transfer are limited to six per month with no more than three by check or similar order to third parties.

Passbook savings accounts will receive annual account statements only.

Preauthorized Payments

Right to stop payment and procedure for doing so. If you have told us in advance to make regular payments out of your account, you can stop any of these payments. Here is how:

Call or write us at the telephone number or address listed in this brochure in time for is to receive your request 3 business days or more before the payment is scheduled to be made. If you call, we may also require you to put your request in writing and get it to us within 14 days after you call.

Notice of varying amounts. If these regular payments may vary in amount, the person you are going to pay will tell you, 10 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.

 

Financial Institutions Liability


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:

  1. If through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer.

  2. If you have an overdraft line and the transfer would go over the credit limit.

  3. If the automated teller machine where you are making the transfer does not have enough cash.

  4. If the terminal or system was not working properly and you knew about the breakdown when you started the transfer.

  5. If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood) prevent the transfer despite reasonable precautions that we have taken.

  6. There may be other exceptions stated in our agreement with you.

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

  1. Where it is necessary for completing transfers; or

  2. In order to verify the existence and condition of your account for a third party, such as a credit bureau or merchant; or

  3. In order to comply with government agency or court orders; or

  4. If you give us written permission.

Unauthorized Transfers
(a) Consumer liability. (1) Generally. Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your card and/or code has been lost or stolen. 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 2 business days, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your card and/or code without your permission. (If you believe your card and/or code has been lost or stolen, and you tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft, 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 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft of the 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, 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 periods.

(2) Additional Limits on Liability for Visa check card, when used for point-of-sale transactions. Unless you have been grossly negligent or have engaged in fraud, you will not be liable for any unauthorized transactions using your lost or stolen Visa check card, when used for point-of-sale transactions, if you report the loss or theft of the card. If you do NOT tell us within 2 business days, your liability is the lesser of $50 or the amount of money, property, labor, or services obtained by the unauthorized use before notification with us.

Error Resolution Notice
In case of errors or questions about your electronic transfers, call, write or email us 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 60 days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.

  1. Tell us your name and account number (if any).

  2. 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.

  3. Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error.

We will tell you the results of our investigation within 10 business days (20 business days if the transfer involved a point-of-sale transaction or a foreign-initiated transfer) after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days (90 days if the transfer involved a point-of-sale 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 (20 business days if the transfer involved a point-of-sale transaction or a foreign-initiated transfer) 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.

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

Notice Regarding ATM Fees by Others
If you use an automated teller machine that is not operated by us, you may be charged a fee by the operator of the machine and/or by an automated transfer network.

Notice of ATM/Night Deposit
Facility User Precautions
As with all financial transactions, please exercise discretion when using an automated teller machine (ATM) or night deposit facility. For your own safety, be careful. The following suggestions may be helpful.

  1. Prepare for your transactions at home (for instance, by filling out a deposit slip) to minimize your time at the ATM or night deposit facility.

  2. Mark each transaction in your account record, but not while at the ATM or night deposit facility. Always save your ATM receipts. Donít leave them at the ATM or night deposit facility because they may contain important account information.

  3. Compare your records with the account statements you receive.

  4. Donít lend your ATM card to anyone.

  5. Remember, do not leave your card at the ATM. Do not leave until you see "transaction complete" on the screen. Do not leave any documents at a night deposit facility.

  6. Protect the secrecy of your Personal Identification Number (PIN). Protect your ATM card as though it were cash. Donít tell anyone your PIN. Donít give anyone information regarding your ATM card or PIN over the telephone. Donít write your PIN where it can be discovered. For example, donít keep a note of you PIN in your wallet or purse.

  7. Prevent others from seeing you enter your PIN by using your body to shield their view.

  8. If you lose your ATM card or it is stolen, promptly notify us. You should consult the other disclosures you have received about electronic fund transfers for additional information about what to do if your card is lost or stolen.

  9. When you make a transaction, be aware of your surroundings. Look out for suspicious activity near the ATM or night deposit facility, particularly if it is after sunset. At night, be sure that the facility (including the parking area and walkway) is well lighted. Consider having someone accompany you when you use the facility, especially after sunset. If you observe any problem, go to another ATM or night deposit facility.

  10. Donít accept assistance from anyone you donít know when using an ATM or night deposit facility.

  11. If you notice anything suspicious or if any other problem arises after you have begun an ATM transaction, you may want to cancel the transaction, pocket your card and leave. You might consider using another ATM or coming back later.

  12. Donít display your cash: pocket it as soon as the ATM transaction is competed and count the cash later when you are in the safety of your own car, home, or other secure surrounding.

  13. At a drive-up-facility, make sure all the car doors are locked and all of the windows are rolled up, except the driverís window. Keep the engine running and remain alert to your surroundings.

  14. We want the ATM and night deposit facility to be safe and convenient for you. Therefore, please tell us if you know of any problem with a facility. For instance, let us know if a light is not working or there is any damage to a facility. Please report any suspicious activity or crimes to both the operator of the facility and the local law enforcement officials immediately.

YOUR ABILITY TO WITHDRAW FUNDS

This policy statement applies to all deposit accounts.

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 3:00 P.M. 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 3:00 P.M. or on a day we are not open, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day we are open
