Effective Date: August 1st, 2023

Please read these Terms of Service (“Terms”) carefully before using any of our services (the “Service”). These Terms govern your use of the Service provided by Globalfy, LLC or Globalfy Business Services, LLC (“we,” “us,” or “our”).

“Plans” are a combination of services and features as described at https://globalfy.com.

  1. Acceptance of Terms

By using the Service, you agree to be bound by these Terms and all applicable laws and regulations. If you do not agree with any part of these Terms, you must not use the Service.

  1. Description of Service

All described services are provided by Globalfy while a subscription is paid and active, and sold exclusively at https://globalfy.com, the company’s website. 

2.a Business Formation/Company Registration Service

Included in all our plans, the business formation service is provided to assist individuals or entrepreneurs in registering their own businesses. It offers comprehensive guidance and support throughout the process of forming a new company, processing the forms to register it in the state, and assisting in obtaining an Employer Identification Number (EIN) from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), which is essential for tax reporting and employment purposes. Such services aim to streamline the business formation process and make it hassle-free for the business owner.

All Business Formation services include:

– Company registration (LLC, Corporation) in the requested state

– Employer Identification Number (EIN) application with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)

– Post-formation document templates: Operating Agreement or Bylaws, Minutes of First Organizational Meeting, Stock Certificate, and Stock Ledger.

Our Business Formation service already includes appointing a Registered Agent within the state of registration and using our Virtual Address on formation and tax documents. Those services are still active after the business registration is completed as long as the subscription remains with the payments in good standing and active.

Once you submit your application, all information is final and may only be changed if the business formation process has not yet started. Any change after the process has been submitted to the state, may result in additional fees.

The state fees are not included in our pricing and will be charged directly on our website at the time of hiring Business Formation services.

Globalfy is not a legal service, and no legal advice is provided. No attorney/customer relationship is formed by using any of our services.

Although we offer estimated timelines for the application process, be aware that delays may happen based on external factors, such as delays from the IRS or the state.

We will provide all documents received during the process in digital format. Physical copies will only be available upon request if they are received at our Virtual Address service. In such cases, additional fees may apply.

2.b Registered Agent Service

Included in all our plans, a Registered Agent service, also known as a statutory agent or resident agent service, is a professional or company that acts as an official point of contact for a business entity, such as a corporation or limited liability company (LLC), within a specific jurisdiction – state of registration. 

It is designated to receive important legal documents and official correspondence on behalf of the business, including legal notices, tax forms, government communications, and service of process (lawsuits). The registered agent also forwards all official mail and legal documents received on behalf of the business to the designated point of contact within the company.

All legal documents that we receive as your Registered Agent are accessible for download through Globalfy’s customer portal.

After 90 days of the receipt date, all notifications will be securely destroyed and discarded. You may request a mail forwarding service to an address inside or outside the USA, within 90 days of receiving it. Shipping costs are not included in our fees and you’re responsible for reimbursing these costs prior to the shipping date. Additionally, a handling fee of $15 will be charged for each mail forwarding request.

2.c Virtual Address Service

Included in all our plans, our Virtual Address service provides an actual street address in Orlando, Florida, regardless of your state of registration, to be used for registering a company in the state and the IRS, receiving letters, and other mail items.

When mail is received on your behalf, it will be managed and processed. Our services include scanning the envelopes and content, except for credit or debit cards, notifying the customer of incoming mail, and securely storing it. All processed mail is available to access and download in Globalfy’s customer portal.

After 90 days from the receipt date, all mail will be securely destroyed and discarded. You may request a mail forwarding service to an address inside or outside the USA within 90 days of receiving it.

2.d Bookkeeping Service

Failure to comply with these terms may result in termination of the service.

2.e Tax Preparation Services

Included in the “Essential” and “Scale” plans, our tax preparation service takes on the responsibility of preparing and completing tax returns on behalf of our customers. This process involves collecting all pertinent financial information and documents from your company, such as income statements, expense records, and receipts from deductible expenses. With this data, we calculate your company’s tax liability or refund.

Tax support is provided during the duration of your hired plan. However, tax preparation and filling are only accessible if both the following conditions are met 1) The company had the Essential or Scale plans active at least for 30 days before the end of the fiscal year r; 2) The Plan is still active 30 days prior to the due date of the required Tax Form. In some instances and at our discretion, we may still provide the tax preparation service even if both requirements are not fulfilled, incurring additional fees

The following forms are included in our Tax Preparation service unless specified otherwise:

– IRS Form 1120
– IRS Form 1065
IRS Form 1040NR (Only for LLCs with only 1 Member, Disregarded Entity)
Schedule C
IRS Form 5472
State Income Tax Return (1 State)

Additionally, the following forms may be availed upon additional fee and the customer’s approval:

– IRS Form 1040NR  (For LLCs with 2 or more Members, Partnership)

Additional Mandatory Reports/Surveys, required by government agencies.

As part of the Tax Preparation service, customers with the “Essential” plan have one call with a tax specialist per year, while customers with the “Scale” plan have access to multiple calls a year. Each call typically lasts for about 30 minutes and serves as an opportunity to discuss tax matters related to the company. Tax support for personal matters may be provided upon additional fees.

During those calls, customers can invite up to 2 other team members from the same company to discuss the operation. The participation of third parties is prohibited unless they are lawyers or accountants with the aim of discussing issues of the company in question.

In the event that your company receives any letter from the IRS regarding forms prepared and submitted by Globalfy, the “Essential” plan includes up to 2 working hours of support for reviewing and responding to the letter, while the “Scale” plan includes up to 4 working hours per occurrence. This service is solely available while your subscription and plan remain active.

No tax return will be filed without your explicit approval and signature. This ensures that you have reviewed and agreed to the accuracy of the information presented in the tax return before it is submitted to the relevant authorities. You are responsible for the approval and signature prior to the due date, and you will be responsible for any fine or penalties applied by the IRS or any other government agency caused by the delay in providing us the approval or signing the returns.

2.f Banking Service and Banking Platform

In partnership with Blue Ridge Bank, N.A.; Member FDIC, Globalfy provides business bank accounts and Visa debit cards for companies with an active subscription of “Starter”, “Essential” or “Scale” plans.

When you subscribe to our plans or apply to our banking service, you acknowledge that additional analyses are done by Globalfy and Blue Ridge Bank, N.A., and that you may have your banking application denied, and no refunds will be provided.

Other terms and conditions are applied to Globalfy Banking Services. Please, refer to https://globalfy.com/legal.

2.g State Renewal

The State Renewal service is included in both the “Essential” and “Scale” plans. This service is designed to manage the annual or bi-annual filing requirements mandated by your state of registration, commonly known as the Annual Report or Franchise Tax.

The preparation and filing of your Annual Report or Franchise Tax are available only if your company has an active plan 30 days prior to the report’s due date. Globalfy, at its own discretion, may still provide this service even if both requirements are not met, subject to additional fees.

While our service fee for State Renewal is already included in those plans, the state fee itself is not included. Prior to the submission of your report to the state, the applicable state fee will be charged to your account separately. You are responsible for any fine or penalties applied by any other government agency caused by the delay in providing us with the approval or payment.

2.h Company Dissolution

Included in the “Essential” and “Scale” plans, the Dissolution of a company is the process of inactivating/terminating a company within a state and preparing and filling the final Business Tax Return or terminating the EIN account with the IRS.

Although the service fee is included in the plan, the state fee is not included and will be charged to your account prior to the submission to the state.

While the company is not fully dissolved, the business remains active and continues to have compliance requirements. Therefore, while the dissolution process is pending with government agencies, the subscription to the “Essential” or “Scale” plan must remain active and with the payments current. After the dissolution process is completed, your subscription with Globalfy will be canceled, and access to the Customer Portal and all other services will be removed.”

2.i Customer Portal

Included in all plans, our Customer Portal is available at https://portal.globalfy.com and provides access to important information about your account, billing, and company. Additional features, such as a Compliance Calendar, Customer Service, and Rewards may be available while you have an active plan and subscription.

  1. Service Plans and Billing

All fees, unless otherwise specified, are denoted in United States dollars (USD), and all charges will be processed in United States dollars and, by using our services, you grant us and our designated payment processor permission to charge your specified credit card, debit card, or other payment methods for these fees. Any currency exchange settlements or foreign transaction fees will be governed by the terms and conditions set by your credit card or payment method provider.

All fees listed on our website for business formation, amendments, dissolutions, and annual renewals (annual report or franchise tax) don’t include state fees. Those fees are charged in advance once they are approved by you.

Our services operate on a pay-as-you-go basis and are billed at the start of your chosen subscription term, which can be either monthly or annually. All subscriptions are automatically renewed on their anniversary. Please note that, except as required by law or otherwise indicated on the site or in the services, all fees are nonrefundable, and user payments and purchases cannot be canceled. However, we reserve the right to decline or terminate any purchase or attempted purchase at our sole discretion.

If you decide to upgrade your plan during your current subscription period and you are on an annual payment plan, any additional costs will be prorated based on the remaining term of your subscription period and then charged to your account accordingly. When upgrading from the “Starter” plan to the “Essential” or “Scale” plans, an additional onboarding fee of $200 will be charged.

On the other hand, if you are on a monthly payment plan and choose to upgrade, the new rate will apply on the next payment and the pro-rate charge will be made for the current month.

For downgrades, if you are on a monthly payment plan no refund will be given. On the other hand, for an annual payment plan, a partial pro-rated refund will be provided.

To ensure uninterrupted service, you must maintain a valid credit or debit card attached to your subscription plan, and all payment methods may be managed through our Customer Portal. If a payment transaction is denied, our billing platform will try to re-process it for up to 5 business days. If no payment is done, our services and access to your account will be suspended.

Please note that if your account becomes delinquent (with overdue invoices exceeding 5 days), any letters, requirements, or government compliance issues that arise during this period will not be handled by Globalfy. To ensure you receive the full range of services and support included in your hired plan, it is crucial to keep your account current and promptly settle any outstanding invoices.

  1. Cancellation

If you request a cancelation of your business formation application before we submit it to a state or government agency and up to 7 days after your payment, Globalfy, at its own discretion, may be able to provide a partial refund. If the request is made after its submission, no refund will be provided. If you decide to discontinue the process, additional fees to process the dissolution of your company may be applied.

If you request the cancellation of a subscription up to 7 business days after the first payment and prior to receiving the confirmation of service activation, Globalfy, at its own discretion, may be able to provide a refund.

If you or your credit card company request a refund or initiate a dispute for a legitimate transaction made by Globalfy, all services associated with that transaction will be suspended until the matter is resolved.

11. Governing Law
This Agreement, and your use of the Site and Services are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to its conflict of law principles.

12. Arbitration
If the Parties are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) will be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Consumer Rules”), both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Consumer Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by either Party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except where otherwise required by the applicable AAA rules or applicable law, the arbitration will take place in virtually or at a mutually agreed upon locations. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.

If for any reason, a Dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration, the Dispute shall be commenced or prosecuted in the state and federal courts located in the State of Delaware, and the Parties hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction, and forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in such state and federal courts. Application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act (UCITA) are excluded from these Terms of Use.

In no event shall any Dispute brought by either Party related in any way to the Site be commenced more than 2 years after the cause of action arose. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.

The Parties agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between the Parties individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration shall be joined with any other proceeding; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.

13. Class Action Waiver
Any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class/representative/collective actions are not permitted. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT A PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN EACH’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PUTATIVE CLASS, COLLECTIVE AND/ OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, SUCH AS IN THE FORM OF A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION AGAINST THE OTHER. Further, unless both you and Globalfy agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.

14. Mobile Applications
We grant you a revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited right to install and use the App on wireless electronic devices owned or controlled by you, and to access and use the mobile application on such devices strictly in accordance with the terms and conditions of this mobile application license contained in these Agreement.

No Waiver. No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Globalfy’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

based campaigns on Google, Bing, MSN, Yahoo, Facebook or any other network unless given written permission first from us.

  1. You may ONLY advertise coupon codes that are provided to you through the affiliate program.

  5. You may NOT advertise coupon codes obtained from our non-affiliate advertising, customer e-mails, paid search, or any other campaign.
  6. You may NOT give the appearance that any ongoing offer requires clicking from your website in order to redeem. For example, if all items on the site have free setup, you may not turn this into an offer that infers that the customer must click from your site to get this deal.
  7. Additionally, if your website ranks on the first page of any search engine for terms related to our website or company name(s) combined with the words coupon, coupons, coupon code, promo code, etc. and/or your conversion rate exceeds 25%, you may be offered a lower commission than our standard rate to offset the reduced profitability of orders.

Valid codes are defined as codes that are made available to the affiliate channel in general, through newsletters or the respective section in your affiliate interface, and directly or privately to affiliates. Coupon codes that are not real, expired, not specific (i.e. ‘up to 40% off sale items’) or are long-term, sitewide offers that do not require a code may not be considered valid codes and the affiliate will not be given commission on these orders.

We reserve the right to exclude items ordered by you (using the Program Affiliate Link which would otherwise qualify for direct sales) and to not pay commissions for them, if we deem it necessary, in our sole discretion, to prevent abuse of the Program, or to reject orders that do not comply with any requirements that we periodically may establish.

INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ THIS AGREEMENT AND AGREE TO ALL ITS TERMS AND CONDITIONS. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WE MAY AT ANY TIME ADMIT OTHERS INTO THE PROGRAM ON TERMS THAT MAY DIFFER FROM THOSE CONTAINED IN THIS AGREEMENT. YOU HAVE INDEPENDENTLY EVALUATED THE DESIRABILITY OF PARTICIPATING IN THE PROGRAM AND ARE NOT RELYING ON ANY REPRESENTATION, GUARANTEE, OR STATEMENT OTHER THAN AS SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT.

We are required by law to give you certain information in writing. This means you have the right to receive that information on paper. With your consent, we can provide it to you electronically, instead.

In this Agreement:
In this agreement, “we,” “us,” “our,” and “Globalfy” mean Globalfy, LLC. “You” and “your” refer to the individual or entity signing up for a Globalfy account or using a Globalfy product.

“Communications” means disclosures, notices, agreements, fee schedules, privacy policies, statements, records, documents, and other information we provide to you, or that you sign and submit or agree to at our request.

Globalfy is dedicated to providing the best online banking experience possible, including providing information to you electronically. By accepting this agreement, you agree that you are willing and able to receive Communications in electronic form, and consent to receive Communications in electronic form. If you do not give your consent to receive Communications in electronic and not paper form, you may not open a Globalfy account. If you withdraw your consent to electronic Communications at any point after providing consent hereunder, we reserve the right to terminate your Account.

You agree to receive electronic Communications from us.

As part of your relationship with us, we will provide you with Communications. By accepting this Agreement, you consent to receiving Communications in electronic form for any products, services and accounts that you have or apply for, either now or in the future. You also consent to the use of electronic signatures in your relationship with us.

We may still choose to provide you with information on paper even though you have consented to receive it electronically. In some cases, we are not permitted by law to deliver certain Communications to you electronically. However, if the law changes in the future and permits additional Communications to be delivered electronically, this Agreement will automatically cover those Communications as well.

Delivery
We may deliver electronic Communications to you in several ways.

When we deliver electronic Communications to you, we will either: (1) email them to you; (2) post them on our website; (3) present them on-screen or for download through one of our online or mobile banking services; (4) include them in other electronic Communications that we are delivering to you, such as electronic account statements; or (5) in the manner specified in any other agreement we have with you. If we are not emailing or presenting the information to you directly, we will tell you where you can go to view that information.

If you seek to obtain a new product, service or account with us, we may remind you that you have already consented to receiving electronic Communications and using electronic signatures in your relationship with us. If you choose not to receive electronic Communications or use electronic signatures in connection with the new product, service or account, that choice does not mean you have withdrawn your consent with respect to any other product, service or account.

Technology Requirements
You will need some technology to receive electronic Communications.

To receive and retain electronic Communications from us, you will need the following:

– A computer or mobile device with an operating system that supports everything below;
– A connection to the internet;
– A current version of a web browser that we support. You should check the system requirements periodically for updates to supported software;
– A hard drive or other data storage unit;
– A valid, active email address; and
– A current version of a program that displays PDF files (such as Adobe Reader(R)).

If our hardware and software requirements change, and that change would create a material risk that you would not be able to access or retain electronic Communications, we will give you notice of the change. Continuing to use our electronic services after receiving notice of updates to our system requirements signifies your acceptance of the change and reaffirmation of your consent.

Please keep your contact information up to date.

It is your responsibility to keep all of your contact information current so that we can send you electronic Communications. You can update your email address and other contact information by contacting us.

Withdrawing Consent
You have the right to withdraw this consent at any time. Withdrawing consent may terminate your access to certain electronic services. You may also no longer be able to use certain of our products and services. After we have processed your withdrawal, future Communications required to be in writing will be delivered to you on paper, subject to applicable fees. To withdraw your consent, please contact us at the information below. Your withdrawal of consent will become effective only after we have had a reasonable opportunity to act upon it.

We may refuse to recognize any resolution or document affecting the Account that appears to us to be incomplete, improperly executed, or fraudulent.

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 identifying each person who opens an Account. This means that when you open an Account, we will ask for information that allows us to identify you. We may ask for a driver’s license or other identifying documents for your business, Authorized Users, account owners, and your officers, directors, beneficial owners, controlling shareholders and others.

1.7. Minimum Deposits and Balances

There is no minimum deposit required to open an Account and no minimum balance you need to maintain in your Account.

1.9. Authority

You agree that we may honor and rely upon the instructions or the execution, delivery and/or negotiation of any check, substitute check, draft, withdrawal order, instruction or similar instrument (collectively, “items”) or document by any of your authorized agents regardless of the necessity or reasonableness of such action, the circumstances of any transactions affected by such action, the amount of the transaction, the source or disposition of any proceeds and regardless of whether the relevant items or documents result in payment to the authorized agent or an individual obligation of the authorized agent or anyone else. “Authorized agents” include Authorized Users and any person who has signed a signature card, who is authorized by this Agreement, any resolution or otherwise to access or use the Account. It also includes any person who has been permitted by you or another authorized agent to act on your behalf in dealing with us.

1.10. Power of Attorney and Attorneys-In-Fact

We may allow you to give another person (known as an “attorney-in-fact”) power of attorney to act on your behalf for your Account. You must obtain written approval from us before we will honor any power of attorney. Email us at [email protected] for approval if you plan to create a power of attorney. Please be aware that it may take up to two (2) weeks for us to review your request. If approved, we will honor orders and instructions from your attorney-in-fact until (1) we receive a written revocation from you; (2) we are notified that you or your attorney-in-fact have died or become incapacitated; or (3) we terminate our acceptance of the power of attorney. We may terminate our acceptance at any time, for any reason and without notice to you, and you agree not to hold us liable for any damages that may result from such action. You also agree to hold us harmless for any actions we take based on the instructions of your attorney-in-fact, including if it is later determined that your power of attorney was invalid or improperly executed.

1.11. Death or Incapacitation

You agree that if we receive notification or if we have reason to believe that you or any Authorized User has died or become legally incapacitated, we may place a hold on your Account and refuse all transactions until we know and have verified the identify of your heir, devisee or successor. Until we receive notice and any required proof of death or incapacitation, we may continue to accept deposits and process transactions to your Account. Your estate will be responsible for repaying us for any tax liability resulting from payment of your account balance to your estate. You agree to hold us harmless for any actions we take based on our belief that you have died or become incapacitated. If certain payments originating from government entities are deposited into your Account after your death, we may be required to return those payments to the originator upon notice.

We strive to keep your Account secure and provide you with tools and services to help you manage your Account. However, there are certain things you should do to protect your Account and your funds.

2.1. Notify Us If Your Information Changes

You must notify us immediately if there is a change to your business or trade name, the names of any individual or Authorized User with access to your Account, telephone number, mailing address, email address or any other information you have provided us so that we can continue to provide you with statements and important notices concerning your Account.

2.2. Keep Track of Your Transactions and Available Balance

It is important that you keep track of your transactions and the funds in your Account that are available for you to use (“Available Balance”) by reviewing your transaction history. It is also important to understand that your Available Balance may not reflect transactions you have authorized that have not yet been presented to us for payment.

You are also responsible for reviewing your Account statements as they are made available to you for errors or unauthorized activity. If you identify an error or unauthorized activity, you must notify us promptly to avoid losing your money. Please refer to Sections 3.10, 4.5, 4.6, and 6.10 for information concerning errors and unauthorized activity.

2.3. Protect Your Account Information

It is important that you protect your Account information to prevent unauthorized transactions and fraud. Keep your Account number, debit card, and statements secure at all times, and be careful about who you share this information with. If the Program Partner provides you with access to Online Banking Services, make sure to also keep your computer or mobile device secure at all times, with updated software, and avoid accessing the Online Banking Services when others can see your screen.

If your Account number, debit card, mobile device or Online Banking Services login credentials are lost or stolen, notify us immediately to keep your losses to a minimum. Please refer to Section 4.5 for information and applicable deadlines for notifying us of losses or theft.

The end of the business day is referred to as the “deposit cut-off time”. If you make a deposit before our cut-off 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 our cut-off time or on a day we are not open, we will consider the deposit to be made on the next business day that we are open.

The availability of funds transferred to your Account from a connected bank account held by another financial institution follow different rules. Please refer to Section 3.6 for more information. In addition, the availability of any funds credited to your Account as a result of transactions initiated via the ACH Origination Service also follow different rules. Please refer to Section 5 for more information.

3.3. ACH Credit Transactions and UCC Article 4A

Credit given by us with respect to an ACH credit entry is provisional until we receive final settlement for such entry through a Federal Reserve Bank. If we do not receive final settlement, you acknowledge and agree that we are entitled to a refund of the amount credited to you in connection with the ACH credit entry, and the party making payment to you via such entry shall not be deemed to have paid you in the amount of such entry.

Under the operating rules of the National Automated Clearing House Association, which are applicable to ACH transactions involving your Account, we are not required to give next day notice to you of receipt of an ACH item and will not do so. However, we will continue to notify you of the receipt of ACH items through your Account statements.

We may accept on your behalf payments to your Account which have been transmitted through one or more Automated Clearing Houses and which are not subject to the Electronic Fund Transfer Act and your rights and obligations with respect to such payments shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia, unless otherwise specified in a separate agreement that the law of some other state shall govern.

3.4. Problems that Could Occur With Deposits

If a deposit or transfer to your Account is returned or rejected by the paying financial institution for any reason, or if there is an error or mistake involving a deposit or transfer, we may deduct the amount of the deposit, transfer, or error without prior notice to you. If there are insufficient funds in your Account at the time, your Account may become overdrawn. Please refer to Section 3.11 concerning overdrafts for more information.

3.5. Withdrawals From Your Account

You may withdraw funds up to the amount of your Available Balance in your Account using any of the following methods and subject to the following limits:

Withdrawal MethodLimitations for Your Account
Internal transfers between eligible accounts managed by the Program PartnerNo limits

You cannot withdraw funds by check, and we do not permit you to create checks drawn on your Account.

Before permitting a withdrawal or other transaction, we may request that you provide us with additional information or documentation that we deem necessary to confirm your identity or to prevent illegal activity. We may refuse the transaction if you do not comply with our request.

3.6. Transfers To or From Connected Bank Accounts

You may be provided with the ability to link another bank account you have with another financial institution (“connected bank account”) to your Account with us to make inbound and outbound ACH transfers between the connected bank account and your Account through the Online Banking Services. An “inbound transfer” moves funds into your Account from a connected bank account. An “outbound transfer” moves funds from your Account to a connected bank account. We will facilitate transfers to a connected bank account separate and apart from any access we provide you to the ACH Origination Service (see Section 5 below).

For inbound transfers, we will debit your connected bank account and credit your Account with us on the next business day after you initiate the transfer. The funds you transfer to your Account will be made available to you by the fifth (5th) business day after the funds have been credited to your Account.

For outbound transfers, we will debit your Account with us and credit your connected bank account on the next business day after you initiate the transfer. The financial institution that holds your connected bank account determines when those funds will be made available to you in your connected bank account.

The cut-off time for both inbound and outbound transfers is 3:00 PM ET. Transfer requests that you make on a business day before the cut-off time will be considered initiated on that day. Transfer requests that you make after the cut-off time, or on a day that is not a business day, will be considered initiated the following business day that we are open.

There are limits to the dollar amount of both inbound and outbound transfers you can make. Please see sections 3.1 and 3.5.

You agree that you will only attempt to link a bank account for which you have the authority to transfer funds. You also agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from any claims by any business or person related to the connected bank account, including any other owner of the connected bank account. You may only link a bank account that is a deposit account, such as a checking, savings, or money market account.

3.7. No Illegal Activity, Internet Gambling and Right to Refuse Transactions

You must not use your Account for any illegal purposes or, regardless of whether it is legal or illegal, for internet gambling. We may deny any transaction or refuse to accept any deposit that we believe is related to illegal activity, online gambling or for any other reason at our discretion.

3.8. How We Post Transactions To Your Account and Determine Your Available Balance
3.8.1. Posting Overview

To understand how we post transactions to your Account, it is important to first understand the difference between your Available Balance and your ledger balance. Your Available Balance is the amount of money you have in your Account at any given time that is available for you to use. Your ledger balance is the balance in your Account at the beginning of the day after we have posted all transactions to your Account from the day before. We use your Available Balance to authorize your transactions throughout the day and determine whether you have sufficient funds to pay your transactions. Here are some additional terms that are helpful to understand:

  • Credit and debit – A credit increases your balance and a debit decreases your balance.
  • Post or posted – Transactions that are paid from or deposited to your Account. Posted transactions will either increase or decrease both your Available Balance and your ledger balance.
  • Pending – Transactions that we receive notice of and are scheduled to post to your Account. Pending transactions affect your Available Balance, but not your ledger balance.
  • Card authorization and settlement – When you use a debit card to make a purchase, the transaction occurs in two steps: card authorization and settlement. Card authorizations reduce your Available Balance, but not your ledger balance. Settlement reduces both your Available Balance and your ledger balance. Card authorizations are removed when settlement occurs or after a certain number of days have passed, whichever is sooner. Please see Section 3.8.4 for more information about card authorizations and settlement.
3.8.2. Posting Order

We receive transactions throughout the day and post them to your Account as they are received and in the order that they are received. Note that for debit card transactions, we consider the transaction received when the merchant requests settlement, which may occur several days after you authorize the transaction. See Section 3.8.4 for additional information concerning how debit card transactions are processed.

We may change the order in which we post transactions to your Account at our discretion and without notice to you. It is therefore important for you to keep track of the deposits you make and the transactions you authorize to make sure there are sufficient funds in your Account to cover all transactions and any applicable fees.

3.8.3. Determining Your Available Balance

To determine your Available Balance, we start with your ledger balance at the beginning of the business day, add any pending credits or deposits that we make available to you, and subtract any card authorizations and pending debits. All transactions are debited or credited from your Available Balance in the order received.

You may check your available balance through the Online Banking Services. Keep in mind that your Available Balance may not reflect every transaction you have initiated or previously authorized. For example, your Available Balance may not include transactions you have authorized that we have not received.

3.8.4. Debit Card Authorizations

If you are issued a debit card with your Account, you will be able to use your card to pay for goods or services or conduct other transactions with a merchant. When you engage in a transaction with a merchant using your debit card, the merchant will request preauthorization (“card authorization”) for the transaction. If there are sufficient available funds in your Account, we will approve the request and reduce your Available Balance for as long as the card authorization remains on your Account.

Your Available Balance will generally be reduced by the amount of the card authorization. If you use your card at a restaurant, your Available Balance may be reduced by the amount of the card authorization plus up to an additional twenty percent (20%) of that amount, to account for potential tipping.

The card authorization will remain on your Account until the merchant sends us the final amount of the transaction and requests payment (“settlement”). In most cases, If the merchant does not request settlement, or the merchant is delayed in requesting settlement, the card authorization will automatically be removed after three (3) days. However, for certain merchants such as hotels and rental car companies, it may take up to thirty (30) days for the card authorization to be removed.

It is important to understand that the merchant controls the timing of card authorizations or settlement. A merchant may request settlement after the card authorization has been removed from your Account. This means that if you use the funds in your Account after the card authorization has been removed and the merchant later requests settlement, your Account may become overdrawn. A merchant may also request settlement for an amount that is different than the card authorization. Therefore, it is important that you keep track of your transactions and your balance. Once we have approved a card authorization, we cannot stop the transaction and you will be responsible for repaying any negative balance that may occur.

3.9. Statements

Statements will periodically be provided to you through the Online Banking Services as long as your Account is not inactive. You will receive a statement monthly as long as you have transactions on your Account during the statement period. If there were no transactions on your Account, we may not provide you with statements or may provide you with statements on a less frequent basis. You will not receive paper statements.

3.10. Errors On Your Account and Limitations of Liability

You agree to carefully review your statements and promptly report to us any errors or unauthorized activity by emailing us at [email protected] within thirty (30) days after we make the statement available to you. Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement or required by law, if you do not provide us with timely notice of an error or unauthorized activity, we will deem our records concerning your Account to be correct and you agree that we will not be liable to you for any loss you suffer relating to the error or unauthorized activity. You further agree that we may debit or credit your Account at any time and without notice to you to correct an error or address unauthorized activity.

In any case, our maximum liability to you will never exceed the amount of actual damages proven by you. Our liability may also be further reduced by the amount of the loss that is caused by your own negligence or lack of care, as well as any recovery of the loss you obtain from third parties. Please refer to Section 4 for additional information concerning errors and unauthorized transactions involving electronic fund transfers and related limitations of liability. There may also be other limitations of liability contained in this Agreement.

3.11. Overdrafts, Nonsufficient Funds and Negative Balances

We do not permit you to overdraw your Account. If the Available Balance in your Account is not sufficient to cover any transaction you have authorized, we may return the transaction or refuse to process the transaction. However, there may be instances where your Account can still go into the negative, such as if a deposit you make is returned. You must make a deposit immediately to cover any negative balance. If your Account has a negative balance for sixty (60) calendar days or more, we may close your Account.

3.12. Closing Your Account and Account Suspensions

You can close your Account at any time and for any reason by emailing us at [email protected]. We reserve the right to refuse your request if you have a negative balance on your Account. We recommend that you transfer or withdraw any funds you may have in the Account prior to submitting a request to close the Account to avoid delays in receiving your funds.

We may also suspend or close your account, or suspend or disable any service or feature of your Account, at our discretion with or without notice. This includes if we believe you are using your Account for fraudulent or illegal purposes or in violation of law or regulation, this Agreement, any other agreement you may have with us or Unit, if multiple transactions are returned on your Account, or if you otherwise present undue risk to us or Unit. We may also close your Account if you have not made any deposits or withdrawals from your Account in over twelve (12) months. In addition, canceling your enrollment in the Online Banking Services with the Program Partner will result in our closure of the Account and our return of your funds. We are not responsible to you for any damages you may suffer as a result of the closure or suspension of your Account.

If your Account is closed with a balance greater than $1.00, we will return any funds you may have in the Account to you by mailing a paper check under your Company Name to the Business Address you have registered with us. We reserve the right not to return the funds to you if the balance in your Account is $1.00 or less. The closure of your Account or termination of this Agreement does not impact any right or obligation that arose prior to closure or termination, or any right or obligation that, by its nature, should survive termination (including, but not limited to, any indemnification obligation by you, our limitations of liability, and any terms governing arbitration).

3.13. Dormancy, Inactivity and Unclaimed Property

State law and our policy govern when your Account is considered dormant. Your Account is usually considered dormant if you have not accessed your Account, communicated to us about your Account or otherwise shown an interest in your Account within the period of time specified under applicable law. Each state has varying laws as to when an account becomes dormant, and we may be required to send the balance in your Account if it becomes dormant to the state of your last known address. We will make reasonable efforts to contact you if required by applicable law before transferring the remaining balance of your Account to the applicable state. After we surrender the funds to the state, you must apply to the appropriate state agency to reclaim your funds. You can avoid the surrender of your funds by simply conducting transactions, contacting us about your Account or replying to any abandoned property notices we may provide to you.

We may also place your Account in an inactive status if you have not had any transaction for at least six (6) months. If your Account becomes inactive, you may not receive statements or be able to conduct certain transactions. Inactive Accounts must be reactivated. Contact us by email at [email protected] to reactivate your Account.

3.14. Account Fees and Fee Schedule

There are no fees associated with this account. Fees are subject to change at any time. We will provide you advance notice of any changes where required by law.

4. Electronic Fund Transfers

Your Account allows you to withdraw funds up to the Available Balance or make deposits through Electronic Fund Transfers (“EFTs”). EFTs are transactions that are processed by electronic means and include, among others, ACH transfers, debit card transactions and direct deposits. This Section provides you with information and important disclosures and terms about the EFTs that are permitted on your Account. You may also receive additional services through Online Banking Services provided by the Program Partner, that allow you to initiate EFTs to and from your Account that are not described in this Agreement. You will be provided separate agreements and disclosures applicable to those services by the Program Partner.

4.1. Types of EFTs Supported by Your Account

Your Account allows the following types of EFTs:

  • Direct deposits from your sources of income
  • Transfers to or from your Account to or from a connected bank account (see Section 3.6)
  • Transfers to or from your Account to a merchant or other third party by providing the third party with your Account routing number and account number
  • Purchases or other transactions using your debit card
  • ATM deposits or withdrawals using your debit card
4.2. Limitations on EFTs

There are limitations on the frequency and amount of transactions you can make to or from your Account. These limits are different for each type of transaction. For limits that apply to transactions that credit or deposit funds into your Account, please refer to Section 3.1 concerning deposits. For limits that apply to transactions that debit or withdraw from your Account, please refer to Section 3.5 concerning withdrawals. For limits that apply to transfers to or from your Account from a connected bank account, please refer to Section 3.6. These security-related limits may change from time to time.

If you have been issued a debit card for your Account, there may also be transaction limitations that apply to your use of the card. Please refer to the applicable cardholder agreement provided to you with your card for information on any limitations and other terms.

4.3. Documentation of Your Transactions

We will provide you information about each transaction that debits or credits your Account on your statements. Please refer to Section 3.9 for information about statements. You may also be able to view your transaction history and other information through Online Banking Services provided to you by the Program Partner. You may also contact us by email at [email protected] or by phone at 1-866-428-2030 for information concerning your Account or your transactions.

If you are provided with a debit card, you can get receipts at the time you make a withdrawal at an ATM or a purchase at a point-of-sale terminal when using your card.

4.4. Preauthorized Transfers, Stop Payments and Notices of Varying Amounts

If you authorize us or another company or person to withdraw from your Account on a regular basis (such as when you sign up for “autopay” to pay a recurring bill or invoice), it is called a Preauthorized Transfer. You may request that we place a stop payment on Preauthorized Transfers, as well as get notification when the amount of a particular withdrawal will be different from the amount of the last withdrawal.

4.4.1. How to Request a Stop Payment

If you authorize a third party to take payments from your Account on a regular basis through a Preauthorized Transfer, you can place a stop payment on those payments by contacting us by email at [email protected] at least three (3) business days before the next payment is scheduled to be made.

You must provide us with (1) your name, (2) your Account number, (3) the company or person taking the payments, and (4) the date and amount of the scheduled payment you wish to stop. If you want all future payments from that company or person stopped, be sure to tell us that as well. If you do not provide us with the correct information, such as the correct payee or the correct amount of the payment you wish to stop, we may not be able to stop the payment.

4.5. Questions About Your EFTs and Reporting Errors or Unauthorized EFTs

You may contact us with questions concerning EFTs that occur on your Account. For card related transactions, contact us at 1-833-333-0417; for all other transactions call us at 1-866-428-2030 or email us at [email protected].

You may also contact us using the methods above to report suspected errors or unauthorized EFTs. Be sure to contact us immediately if you believe that an error or unauthorized EFT has occurred or may occur concerning your Account, or if your Account, debit card, or Online Banking Services login credentials have been lost, stolen or compromised. You must contact us no later than thirty (30) days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the error or unauthorized EFT appeared. You must provide us with the following information:

  • Your name and Account number.
  • A description of the error or the EFT you are unsure about and why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.
  • 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 by email within ten (10) business days.

After receiving your notice of error or unauthorized EFT, we will investigate and provide you with the results and any corrections we make to your Account within a commercially reasonable time.

4.6. Our Liability for a Failure To Complete A Transaction, Unauthorized Transactions or Failure to Stop a Payment

We will respond to notices of errors or unauthorized EFTs and requests to stop payments in a commercially reasonable manner and time. You agree that in no event will we be liable in an amount exceeding the lesser of five thousand dollars ($5,000) or the actual amount of your loss. You also agree that we will not be liable for any amount of loss that you may incur if you:

  • Do not tell us about an error or unauthorized EFT within thirty (30) days after the first statement showing the error or unauthorized EFT is made available to you; or
  • If you do not provide us with the information necessary to place a stop payment on a Preauthorized Transfer in a timely manner.

In addition, we are not liable for any losses you may incur in any of the following circumstances:

  • If the Available Balance in your Account is not sufficient to complete the transaction through no fault of ours.
  • If the ATM you use does not have enough cash.
  • If the failure is due to an equipment or system breakdown, such as a problem with the Online Banking Services provided by the Program Partner, that you knew about before you began a transaction.
  • The failure was caused by an Act of God, fire or other catastrophe, or any other cause beyond our control despite reasonable precautions we have taken.
  • If your funds are not available due to a hold or if your funds are subject to legal process.
  • If we do not complete a transaction because we or Unit has reason to believe the transaction is unauthorized or illegal.
  • If your Account is closed or inactive.
  • There may be additional exceptions stated in our or Unit’s agreements with you or permitted by law.

5. ACH Origination Service

5.1. Description of ACH Origination Service

The ACH Origination Service allows you to instruct us to create and/or send a NACHA formatted file on your behalf to execute the transfer of funds to/from another financial institution to disburse/concentrate funds or to make payments/collect funds to/from another party via the System. All transactions executed through the ACH Origination Service described above will be collectively known as (“ACH transactions”.) The ACH Origination Service is only accessible through the Online Banking Services. Your use of and access to the ACH Origination Service is separate and apart from your ability to facilitate transfers via ACH to a connected bank account (see Section 3.6).

We will facilitate only Internet-Initiated/Mobile Entry (“WEB”) and Corporate Credit or Debit Entry (“CCD”) ACH transactions through the ACH Origination Service. We will select, at our sole discretion, whether to facilitate any given ACH transaction as a WEB transaction or CCD transaction.

Unless otherwise defined in this Agreement, capitalized terms that appear in this Section 5 shall have the meanings set forth in the Operating Rules (the “Rules”) of the National Automated Clearing House Association (“NACHA”).

5.2. Processing Deadlines

Except as provided in Security Procedures in Section 5.4 below, we shall (i) process entries received from you to conform with the file specifications set forth in the Rules, (ii) transmit such entries as an Originating Depository Financial Institution to the Federal Reserve Bank, and (iii) settle for such entries to the specified accounts as provided in the Rules.

We shall transmit such entries to the Federal Reserve Bank by the deadline of the ACH one (1) business day prior to the Effective Entry Date shown in such entries, provided (i) such entries are received 3:00 PM ET on a business day, (ii) the Effective Entry Date is at least two (2) days after such business day, and (iii) the Federal Reserve is open for business on such business day. A “business day” is a day in which the Federal Reserve Bank is opened to the public for carrying on substantially all of its business, other than a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday.

If any of the requirements of clause (i), (ii), or (iii) listed above are not met, we shall use reasonable efforts to transmit such entries to the Federal Reserve Bank by the next deposit deadline on which the Federal Reserve is open for business.

The arbitrator will not be bound by judicial rules of procedure and evidence that would apply in a court. The arbitrator shall take steps to reasonably protect confidential information.

8.3. Informal Dispute Resolution

If a Claim arises, our goal is to address your concerns and, if we are unable to do so, to provide you with a neutral and cost-effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. You agree that before filing any claim in arbitration, you will first submit your Claim to us by email at [email protected] and provide us with the opportunity to resolve your concern prior to initiating arbitration.

8.4. Arbitration Procedures

The party initiating arbitration shall do so with the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) or Judicial Alternatives and Mediation Services (“JAMS”). The arbitration shall be conducted according to, and the location of the arbitration shall be determined in accordance with, the rules and policies of the administrator selected, except to the extent the rules conflict with this Arbitration Provision or any countervailing law. If you have any questions concerning the AAA or would like to obtain a copy of the AAA arbitration rules, you may call 1(800) 778-7879 or visit the AAA’s web site at: www.adr.org. If you have any questions concerning JAMS or would like to obtain a copy of the JAMS arbitration rules, you may call 1(800) 352-5267 or visit their web site at: www.jamsadr.com. In the case of a conflict between the rules and policies of the administrator and this Arbitration Provision, this Arbitration Provision shall control, subject to countervailing law, unless all parties to the arbitration consent to have the rules and policies of the administrator apply. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, or any other location we agree to.

8.5. Arbitration Fees

If we initiate arbitration, we shall pay all the administrator’s filing costs and administrative fees (other than hearing fees). If you initiate arbitration, filing costs and administrative fees (other than hearing fees) shall be paid in accordance with the rules of the administrator selected, or in accordance with countervailing law if contrary to the administrator’s rules. We shall pay the administrator’s hearing fees for one full day of arbitration hearings. Fees for hearings that exceed one day will be paid by the party requesting the hearing, unless the administrator’s rules or applicable law require otherwise, or you request that we pay them and we agree to do so. Each party shall bear the expense of its own attorneys’ fees, except as otherwise provided by law. If a statute gives you the right to recover any of these fees, these statutory rights shall apply in the arbitration notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein.

8.6. Appeals

Within thirty (30) days of a final award by the arbitrator, any party may appeal the award for reconsideration by a three-arbitrator panel selected according to the rules of the arbitrator administrator. In the event of such an appeal, any opposing party may cross-appeal within thirty (30) days after notice of the appeal. The panel will reconsider de novo all aspects of the initial award that are appealed. Costs and conduct of any appeal shall be governed by this Arbitration Provision and the administrator’s rules, in the same way as the initial arbitration proceeding. Any award by the individual arbitrator that is not subject to appeal, and any panel award on appeal, shall be final and binding, except for any appeal right under the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.

8.7. No Class Actions

NO ARBITRATION SHALL PROCEED ON A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE BASIS (INCLUDING AS PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ON BEHALF OF OTHERS), EVEN IF THE CLAIM OR CLAIMS THAT ARE THE SUBJECT OF THE ARBITRATION HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN ASSERTED (OR COULD HAVE BEEN ASSERTED) IN A COURT AS CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE ACTIONS IN A COURT. Unless consented to in writing by all parties to the arbitration, no party to the arbitration may join, consolidate, or otherwise bring claims for or on behalf of two or more individuals or unrelated corporate entities in the same arbitration unless those persons are parties to a single transaction. Unless consented to in writing by all parties to the arbitration, an award in arbitration shall determine the rights and obligations of the named parties only, and only with respect to the claims in arbitration, and shall not (a) determine the rights, obligations, or interests of anyone other than a named party, or resolve any Claim of anyone other than a named party; nor (b) make an award for the benefit of, or against, anyone other than a named party. No administrator or arbitrator shall have the power or authority to waive, modify, or fail to enforce this Section 8.7, and any attempt to do so, whether by rule, policy, arbitration decision or otherwise, shall be invalid and unenforceable. Any challenge to the validity of this Section 8.7 shall be determined exclusively by a court and not by the administrator or any arbitrator.

8.8. Survival and Severability of Arbitration Provision

This Arbitration Provision shall survive the termination of this Agreement. If any portion of this Arbitration Provision other than Section 8.7 is deemed invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portions of this Arbitration Provision shall nevertheless remain valid and in force. If there is a final judicial determination that applicable law precludes enforcement of this Arbitration Provision’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief or particular term, then that claim (and only that claim) or that term (and only that term) must be severed from the Arbitration Provision and may be brought in court. If an arbitration is brought on a class, representative, or collective basis, and the limitations on such proceedings in Section 8.7 are finally adjudicated pursuant to the last sentence of Section 8.7 to be unenforceable, then no arbitration shall be had. In no event shall any invalidation be deemed to authorize an arbitrator to determine Claims or make awards beyond those authorized in this Arbitration Provision.

8.9. Judicial Forum for Claims

Except as otherwise required by applicable law, in the event that this Arbitration Provision is found not to apply to you or your Claim, you and the Bank agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the federal or state courts of Virginia. Both you and the Bank consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there. All parties agree to waive our right to a jury trial.

8.10. Waiver of Right to Litigate

THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO LITIGATE CLAIMS THROUGH A COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY, BUT ARE HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY WAIVING THAT RIGHT BY AGREEING TO THIS AGREEMENT AND ARBITRATION PROVISION.

When you open an Account, you will also be enrolled in an online business banking service or mobile application (collectively, “Online Banking Services”) offered by the Program Partner that you can use to access your Account, view information about your Account and conduct certain transactions. You may also be given access to various features through the Online Banking Services separate from your Account.

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 identifying each person who opens an Account.

We may terminate our acceptance at any time, for any reason and without notice to you, and you agree not to hold us liable for any damages that may result from such action.

2.2. Keep Track of Your Transactions and Available Balance

It is important that you keep track of your transactions and the funds in your Account that are available for you to use (“Available Balance”) by reviewing your transaction history. It is also important to understand that your Available Balance may not reflect transactions you have authorized that have not yet been presented to us for payment.

You are also responsible for reviewing your Account statements as they are made available to you for errors or unauthorized activity. If you identify an error or unauthorized activity, you must notify us promptly to avoid losing your money. Please refer to Sections 3.10, 4.5, 4.6, and 6.10 for information concerning errors and unauthorized activity.

2.3. Protect Your Account Information

It is important that you protect your Account information to prevent unauthorized transactions and fraud. Keep your Account number, debit card, and statements secure at all times, and be careful about who you share this information with. If the Program Partner provides you with access to Online Banking Services, make sure to also keep your computer or mobile device secure at all times, with updated software, and avoid accessing the Online Banking Services when others can see your screen.

If your Account number, debit card, mobile device or Online Banking Services login credentials are lost or stolen, notify us immediately to keep your losses to a minimum. Please refer to Section 4.5 for information and applicable deadlines for notifying us of losses or theft.

Please refer to Section 5 for more information.

3.3. ACH Credit Transactions and UCC Article 4A

Credit given by us with respect to an ACH credit entry is provisional until we receive final settlement for such entry through a Federal Reserve Bank. If we do not receive final settlement, you acknowledge and agree that we are entitled to a refund of the amount credited to you in connection with the ACH credit entry, and the party making payment to you via such entry shall not be deemed to have paid you in the amount of such entry.

Under the operating rules of the National Automated Clearing House Association, which are applicable to ACH transactions involving your Account, we are not required to give next day notice to you of receipt of an ACH item and will not do so. However, we will continue to notify you of the receipt of ACH items through your Account statements.

We may accept on your behalf payments to your Account which have been transmitted through one or more Automated Clearing Houses and which are not subject to the Electronic Fund Transfer Act and your rights and obligations with respect to such payments shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia, unless otherwise specified in a separate agreement that the law of some other state shall govern.

If there are insufficient funds in your Account at the time, your Account may become overdrawn. Please refer to Section 3.11 concerning overdrafts for more information.

You cannot withdraw funds by check, and we do not permit you to create checks drawn on your Account.

Before permitting a withdrawal or other transaction, we may request that you provide us with additional information or documentation that we deem necessary to confirm your identity or to prevent illegal activity. We may refuse the transaction if you do not comply with our request.

3.6. Transfers To or From Connected Bank Accounts

You may be provided with the ability to link another bank account you have with another financial institution (“connected bank account”) to your Account with us to make inbound and outbound ACH transfers between the connected bank account and your Account through the Online Banking Services. An “inbound transfer” moves funds into your Account from a connected bank account. An “outbound transfer” moves funds from your Account to a connected bank account. We will facilitate transfers to a connected bank account separate and apart from any access we provide you to the ACH Origination Service (see Section 5 below).

For inbound transfers, we will debit your connected bank account and credit your Account with us on the next business day after you initiate the transfer. The funds you transfer to your Account will be made available to you by the fifth (5th) business day after the funds have been credited to your Account.

For outbound transfers, we will debit your Account with us and credit your connected bank account on the next business day after you initiate the transfer. The financial institution that holds your connected bank account determines when those funds will be made available to you in your connected bank account.

The cut-off time for both inbound and outbound transfers is 3:00 PM ET. Transfer requests that you make on a business day before the cut-off time will be considered initiated on that day. Transfer requests that you make after the cut-off time, or on a day that is not a business day, will be considered initiated the following business day that we are open.

There are limits to the dollar amount of both inbound and outbound transfers you can make. Please see sections 3.1 and 3.5.

You agree that you will only attempt to link a bank account for which you have the authority to transfer funds. You also agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from any claims by any business or person related to the connected bank account, including any other owner of the connected bank account. You may only link a bank account that is a deposit account, such as a checking, savings, or money market account.

3.7. No Illegal Activity, Internet Gambling and Right to Refuse Transactions

You must not use your Account for any illegal purposes or, regardless of whether it is legal or illegal, for internet gambling. We may deny any transaction or refuse to accept any deposit that we believe is related to illegal activity, online gambling or for any other reason at our discretion.

3.8. How We Post Transactions To Your Account and Determine Your Available Balance
3.8.1. Posting Overview

To understand how we post transactions to your Account, it is important to first understand the difference between your Available Balance and your ledger balance. Your Available Balance is the amount of money you have in your Account at any given time that is available for you to use. Your ledger balance is the balance in your Account at the beginning of the day after we have posted all transactions to your Account from the day before. We use your Available Balance to authorize your transactions throughout the day and determine whether you have sufficient funds to pay your transactions. Here are some additional terms that are helpful to understand:

  • Credit and debit – A credit increases your balance and a debit decreases your balance.
  • Post or posted – Transactions that are paid from or deposited to your Account. Posted transactions will either increase or decrease both your Available Balance and your ledger balance.
  • Pending – Transactions that we receive notice of and are scheduled to post to your Account. Pending transactions affect your Available Balance, but not your ledger balance.
  • Card authorization and settlement – When you use a debit card to make a purchase, the transaction occurs in two steps: card authorization and settlement. Card authorizations reduce your Available Balance, but not your ledger balance. Settlement reduces both your Available Balance and your ledger balance. Card authorizations are removed when settlement occurs or after a certain number of days have passed, whichever is sooner. Please see Section 3.8.4 for more information about card authorizations and settlement.
3.8.2. Posting Order

We receive transactions throughout the day and post them to your Account as they are received and in the order that they are received. Note that for debit card transactions, we consider the transaction received when the merchant requests settlement, which may occur several days after you authorize the transaction. See Section 3.8.4 for additional information concerning how debit card transactions are processed.

We may change the order in which we post transactions to your Account at our discretion and without notice to you. It is therefore important for you to keep track of the deposits you make and the transactions you authorize to make sure there are sufficient funds in your Account to cover all transactions and any applicable fees.

3.8.3. Determining Your Available Balance

To determine your Available Balance, we start with your ledger balance at the beginning of the business day, add any pending credits or deposits that we make available to you, and subtract any card authorizations and pending debits. All transactions are debited or credited from your Available Balance in the order received.

You may check your available balance through the Online Banking Services. Keep in mind that your Available Balance may not reflect every transaction you have initiated or previously authorized. For example, your Available Balance may not include transactions you have authorized that we have not received.

3.8.4. Debit Card Authorizations

If you are issued a debit card with your Account, you will be able to use your card to pay for goods or services or conduct other transactions with a merchant. When you engage in a transaction with a merchant using your debit card, the merchant will request preauthorization (“card authorization”) for the transaction. If there are sufficient available funds in your Account, we will approve the request and reduce your Available Balance for as long as the card authorization remains on your Account.

Your Available Balance will generally be reduced by the amount of the card authorization. If you use your card at a restaurant, your Available Balance may be reduced by the amount of the card authorization plus up to an additional twenty percent (20%) of that amount, to account for potential tipping.

The card authorization will remain on your Account until the merchant sends us the final amount of the transaction and requests payment (“settlement”). In most cases, If the merchant does not request settlement, or the merchant is delayed in requesting settlement, the card authorization will automatically be removed after three (3) days. However, for certain merchants such as hotels and rental car companies, it may take up to thirty (30) days for the card authorization to be removed.

It is important to understand that the merchant controls the timing of card authorizations or settlement. A merchant may request settlement after the card authorization has been removed from your Account. This means that if you use the funds in your Account after the card authorization has been removed and the merchant later requests settlement, your Account may become overdrawn. A merchant may also request settlement for an amount that is different than the card authorization. Therefore, it is important that you keep track of your transactions and your balance. Once we have approved a card authorization, we cannot stop the transaction and you will be responsible for repaying any negative balance that may occur.

3.9. Statements

Statements will periodically be provided to you through the Online Banking Services as long as your Account is not inactive. You will receive a statement monthly as long as you have transactions on your Account during the statement period. If there were no transactions on your Account, we may not provide you with statements or may provide you with statements on a less frequent basis. You will not receive paper statements.

3.10. Errors On Your Account and Limitations of Liability

You agree to carefully review your statements and promptly report to us any errors or unauthorized activity by emailing us at [email protected] within thirty (30) days after we make the statement available to you. Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement or required by law, if you do not provide us with timely notice of an error or unauthorized activity, we will deem our records concerning your Account to be correct and you agree that we will not be liable to you for any loss you suffer relating to the error or unauthorized activity. You further agree that we may debit or credit your Account at any time and without notice to you to correct an error or address unauthorized activity.

In any case, our maximum liability to you will never exceed the amount of actual damages proven by you. Our liability may also be further reduced by the amount of the loss that is caused by your own negligence or lack of care, as well as any recovery of the loss you obtain from third parties. Please refer to Section 4 for additional information concerning errors and unauthorized transactions involving electronic fund transfers and related limitations of liability. There may also be other limitations of liability contained in this Agreement.

3.11. Overdrafts, Nonsufficient Funds and Negative Balances

We do not permit you to overdraw your Account. If the Available Balance in your Account is not sufficient to cover any transaction you have authorized, we may return the transaction or refuse to process the transaction. However, there may be instances where your Account can still go into the negative, such as if a deposit you make is returned. You must make a deposit immediately to cover any negative balance. If your Account has a negative balance for sixty (60) calendar days or more, we may close your Account.

3.12. Closing Your Account and Account Suspensions

You can close your Account at any time and for any reason by emailing us at [email protected]. We reserve the right to refuse your request if you have a negative balance on your Account. We recommend that you transfer or withdraw any funds you may have in the Account prior to submitting a request to close the Account to avoid delays in receiving your funds.

We may also suspend or close your account, or suspend or disable any service or feature of your Account, at our discretion with or without notice. This includes if we believe you are using your Account for fraudulent or illegal purposes or in violation of law or regulation, this Agreement, any other agreement you may have with us or Unit, if multiple transactions are returned on your Account, or if you otherwise present undue risk to us or Unit. We may also close your Account if you have not made any deposits or withdrawals from your Account in over twelve (12) months. In addition, canceling your enrollment in the Online Banking Services with the Program Partner will result in our closure of the Account and our return of your funds. We are not responsible to you for any damages you may suffer as a result of the closure or suspension of your Account.

If your Account is closed with a balance greater than $1.00, we will return any funds you may have in the Account to you by mailing a paper check under your Company Name to the Business Address you have registered with us. We reserve the right not to return the funds to you if the balance in your Account is $1.00 or less. The closure of your Account or termination of this Agreement does not impact any right or obligation that arose prior to closure or termination, or any right or obligation that, by its nature, should survive termination (including, but not limited to, any indemnification obligation by you, our limitations of liability, and any terms governing arbitration).

3.13. Dormancy, Inactivity and Unclaimed Property

State law and our policy govern when your Account is considered dormant. Your Account is usually considered dormant if you have not accessed your Account, communicated to us about your Account or otherwise shown an interest in your Account within the period of time specified under applicable law. Each state has varying laws as to when an account becomes dormant, and we may be required to send the balance in your Account if it becomes dormant to the state of your last known address. We will make reasonable efforts to contact you if required by applicable law before transferring the remaining balance of your Account to the applicable state. After we surrender the funds to the state, you must apply to the appropriate state agency to reclaim your funds. You can avoid the surrender of your funds by simply conducting transactions, contacting us about your Account or replying to any abandoned property notices we may provide to you.

We may also place your Account in an inactive status if you have not had any transaction for at least six (6) months. If your Account becomes inactive, you may not receive statements or be able to conduct certain transactions. Inactive Accounts must be reactivated. Contact us by email at [email protected] to reactivate your Account.

3.14. Account Fees and Fee Schedule

There are no fees associated with this account. Fees are subject to change at any time. We will provide you advance notice of any changes where required by law.

4. Electronic Fund Transfers

Your Account allows you to withdraw funds up to the Available Balance or make deposits through Electronic Fund Transfers (“EFTs”). EFTs are transactions that are processed by electronic means and include, among others, ACH transfers, debit card transactions and direct deposits. This Section provides you with information and important disclosures and terms about the EFTs that are permitted on your Account. You may also receive additional services through Online Banking Services provided by the Program Partner, that allow you to initiate EFTs to and from your Account that are not described in this Agreement. You will be provided separate agreements and disclosures applicable to those services by the Program Partner.

4.1. Types of EFTs Supported by Your Account

Your Account allows the following types of EFTs:

  • Direct deposits from your sources of income
  • Transfers to or from your Account to or from a connected bank account (see Section 3.6)

  • Purchases or other transactions using your debit card
  • ATM deposits or withdrawals using your debit card
4.2. Limitations on EFTs

There are limitations on the frequency and amount of transactions you can make to or from your Account. These limits are different for each type of transaction. For limits that apply to transactions that credit or deposit funds into your Account, please refer to Section 3.1 concerning deposits. For limits that apply to transactions that debit or withdraw from your Account, please refer to Section 3.5 concerning withdrawals. For limits that apply to transfers to or from your Account from a connected bank account, please refer to Section 3.6. These security-related limits may change from time to time.

If you have been issued a debit card for your Account, there may also be transaction limitations that apply to your use of the card. Please refer to the applicable cardholder agreement provided to you with your card for information on any limitations and other terms.

4.3. Documentation of Your Transactions

If you are provided with a debit card, you can get receipts at the time you make a withdrawal at an ATM or a purchase at a point-of-sale terminal when using your card.

4.4. Preauthorized Transfers, Stop Payments and Notices of Varying Amounts

If you authorize us or another company or person to withdraw from your Account on a regular basis (such as when you sign up for “autopay” to pay a recurring bill or invoice), it is called a Preauthorized Transfer. You may request that we place a stop payment on Preauthorized Transfers, as well as get notification when the amount of a particular withdrawal will be different from the amount of the last withdrawal.

4.4.1. How to Request a Stop Payment

If you authorize a third party to take payments from your Account on a regular basis through a Preauthorized Transfer, you can place a stop payment on those payments by contacting us by email at [email protected] at least three (3) business days before the next payment is scheduled to be made.

You must provide us with (1) your name, (2) your Account number, (3) the company or person taking the payments, and (4) the date and amount of the scheduled payment you wish to stop. If you want all future payments from that company or person stopped, be sure to tell us that as well. If you do not provide us with the correct information, such as the correct payee or the correct amount of the payment you wish to stop, we may not be able to stop the payment.

4.5. Questions About Your EFTs and Reporting Errors or Unauthorized EFTs

You may contact us with questions concerning EFTs that occur on your Account. For card related transactions, contact us at 1-833-333-0417; for all other transactions call us at 1-866-428-2030 or email us at [email protected].

You may also contact us using the methods above to report suspected errors or unauthorized EFTs.

  • The dollar amount of the suspected error.

After receiving your notice of error or unauthorized EFT, we will investigate and provide you with the results and any corrections we make to your Account within a commercially reasonable time.

4.6. Our Liability for a Failure To Complete A Transaction, Unauthorized Transactions or Failure to Stop a Payment

We will respond to notices of errors or unauthorized EFTs and requests to stop payments in a commercially reasonable manner and time. You agree that in no event will we be liable in an amount exceeding the lesser of five thousand dollars ($5,000) or the actual amount of your loss. You also agree that we will not be liable for any amount of loss that you may incur if you:

  • Do not tell us about an error or unauthorized EFT within thirty (30) days after the first statement showing the error or unauthorized EFT is made available to you; or
  • If you do not provide us with the information necessary to place a stop payment on a Preauthorized Transfer in a timely manner.

In addition, we are not liable for any losses you may incur in any of the following circumstances:

  • If the Available Balance in your Account is not sufficient to complete the transaction through no fault of ours.
  • If the ATM you use does not have enough cash.
  • If the failure is due to an equipment or system breakdown, such as a problem with the Online Banking Services provided by the Program Partner, that you knew about before you began a transaction.
  • The failure was caused by an Act of God, fire or other catastrophe, or any other cause beyond our control despite reasonable precautions we have taken.
  • If your funds are not available due to a hold or if your funds are subject to legal process.
  • If we do not complete a transaction because we or Unit has reason to believe the transaction is unauthorized or illegal.

5. ACH Origination Service

5.1. Description of ACH Origination Service

The ACH Origination Service allows you to instruct us to create and/or send a NACHA formatted file on your behalf to execute the transfer of funds to/from another financial institution to disburse/concentrate funds or to make payments/collect funds to/from another party via the System. All transactions executed through the ACH Origination Service described above will be collectively known as (“ACH transactions”.) The ACH Origination Service is only accessible through the Online Banking Services. Your use of and access to the ACH Origination Service is separate and apart from your ability to facilitate transfers via ACH to a connected bank account (see Section 3.6).

We will facilitate only Internet-Initiated/Mobile Entry (“WEB”) and Corporate Credit or Debit Entry (“CCD”) ACH transactions through the ACH Origination Service. We will select, at our sole discretion, whether to facilitate any given ACH transaction as a WEB transaction or CCD transaction.

Unless otherwise defined in this Agreement, capitalized terms that appear in this Section 5 shall have the meanings set forth in the Operating Rules (the “Rules”) of the National Automated Clearing House Association (“NACHA”).

5.2. Processing Deadlines

Except as provided in Security Procedures in Section 5.4 below, we shall (i) process entries received from you to conform with the file specifications set forth in the Rules, (ii) transmit such entries as an Originating Depository Financial Institution to the Federal Reserve Bank, and (iii) settle for such entries to the specified accounts as provided in the Rules.

We shall transmit such entries to the Federal Reserve Bank by the deadline of the ACH one (1) business day prior to the Effective Entry Date shown in such entries, provided (i) such entries are received 3:00 PM ET on a business day, (ii) the Effective Entry Date is at least two (2) days after such business day, and (iii) the Federal Reserve is open for business on such business day. A “business day” is a day in which the Federal Reserve Bank is opened to the public for carrying on substantially all of its business, other than a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday.

If any of the requirements of clause (i), (ii), or (iii) listed above are not met, we shall use reasonable efforts to transmit such entries to the Federal Reserve Bank by the next deposit deadline on which the Federal Reserve is open for business.

5.3. ACH Rules

When engaging in any transaction through the ACH Origination Service, you agree to comply with the Rules. You can obtain a copy of the Rules from NACHA at 13450 Sunrise Valley Drive, Suite 100 Herndon, VA 20171; instructions for obtaining a copy of the Rules are also available at www.nacha.org. You agree to comply with and be bound by the Rules. In the event you violate any of the applicable Rules and NACHA imposes a fine on us because of your violation, we may charge the fine to you. We agree to inform you of revisions to the Rules of which we have knowledge. Our current process does not support the origination of IAT’s (International ACH Transactions).

5.7. Authorized Daily Dollar Limits

There are limitations on the frequency and amount of ACH transactions you can originate from your Account using the ACH Origination Service. For limits that apply to transactions that credit or deposit funds into your Account, please refer to Section 3.1 concerning deposits.

5.13. Returned Entries

We shall notify you by email or via the Online Banking Services of the receipt of a returned entry from the Federal Reserve no later than one business day after the business day of such receipt.

You agree not to exceed ninety five percent (95%) of any thresholds set forth in the NACHA Rules for returns on the basis that the Transaction was unauthorized, returns for administrative reasons, or all returns regardless of the cause in any thirty (30) day period. You further agree not to exceed one-half percent (0.5%) returns on the basis that the Transaction was unauthorized in any thirty (30) day period irrespective of whether any NACHA thresholds have been exceeded. Returns on the basis that the transaction was unauthorized will be assigned a NACHA return status of R07 (“authorization revoked by customer”), R10 (“customer advises not authorized”), or R29 (“corporate customer advises not authorized”).

IN NO EVENT SHALL WE BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS, LOSSES OR EXPENSES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE WIRE TRANSFER SERVICE, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SAME.

Sometimes legal, regulatory, or governmental authorities require additional information, either in respect of individuals, entities, or particular transactions. You agree to promptly supply all such information, which any such authority may require, and/or which we may be required to supply, in relation to the individual, entity, or particular transaction.

If you, or your authorized representative, breach any such laws or regulations, you irrevocably agree that we may retain any monies or funds transmitted to us pursuant to this Agreement and/or not fulfill any wire transfer request if we are required to take or refrain from such action by any legal, regulatory, or governmental authority or if we reasonably believe that such action may violate any laws or regulations described herein, and such monies shall not bear interest against us. You further agree that we may pay such monies to the appropriate legal, regulatory, or governmental authority, when required by law.

You also agree to grant us a security interest in your Account to secure payment of any money that you owe to us or will owe us arising under this Agreement or any other agreements with us. You acknowledge that this security interest is consensual and in addition to any right of set-off. We may exercise our security interest or right of set-off without regard to the source of the funds in your Account or prior recourse to other sources of repayment or collateral, even if it causes you to incur penalties or suffer any other consequence. You waive any conditions or limits to our right of set-off to the maximum extent permitted by law. We will notify you if we exercise our right to set-off if required by law.

If we take any action to collect debt incurred by you or other amounts you owe us under this Agreement or defend ourselves in a lawsuit brought by you where we are the prevailing party, you agree to reimburse us for our losses, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees, to the extent permitted by applicable law. We may charge your Account for our losses without prior notice to you.

We will give you advance notice of any change where required by law. We may provide such notice to you with your statement, electronically, or by mail. Any notice we provide to you will be binding and sent to the last (postal or electronic) address in our records. We may change your address if we receive an address change notice from the U.S. Postal Service. We may change or terminate this Agreement without notice at our discretion or to comply with any appropriate federal or state law or regulation.

7.7. No Waiver of Rights

We may waive or decline to enforce any of our rights under this Agreement without obligating ourselves to waive such rights in the future or on any other occasion. We may release any other person obligated under this Agreement without affecting your responsibilities under this Agreement.

7.8. Conflicts and Section Headings

If there is a conflict between this Agreement and any other document or statement made to you concerning the Account, this Agreement will govern. If there is a conflict between this Agreement and any other document or statement made to you concerning any services or products other than the Account, the separate terms and conditions applicable to that service or product will govern. Section headings that appear in this Agreement are for convenience purposes only and are intended to help you find information. They should not be construed as affecting the meaning of the Agreement.

7.9. Severability

If any court or tribunal of competent jurisdiction determines that any provision of this Agreement is illegal, invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Agreement shall not be affected. To the extent permitted by law, the parties waive any provision of law which prohibits or renders unenforceable any provisions of this Agreement, and to the extent that such waiver is not permitted by law, you and us agree that such provision will be interpreted as modified to the minimum extent necessary to render the provisions enforceable.

7.10. Governing Law, Forum and Time Limits

All actions relating to your Account and this Agreement will be governed by the laws and regulations of the United States and the Commonwealth of Virginia where your Account will be opened, irrespective of conflict of law principles. You agree that any dispute arising under this Agreement or relating in any way to your relationship with us that is not arbitrated will be resolved in a federal or state court located in Virginia and that you will be subject to such court’s jurisdiction.

Except where prohibited by law, you agree that you must file any lawsuit or arbitration against us within two (2) years after the claim arises unless federal or Virginia law, or another agreement you have with us, provides for a shorter time. If federal or Virginia law requires a longer time period than the time periods in this Agreement, you agree to the shortest time period permitted under the law.

8. Arbitration and Waivers

BE SURE THAT YOU HAVE READ THIS PROVISION CAREFULLY AND UNDERSTAND THAT IT LIMITS YOUR RIGHTS IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND US.

8.1. Election to Arbitrate

You, Globalfy, LLC and the Bank agree that the sole and exclusive forum and remedy for resolution of a Claim be final and binding arbitration pursuant to this Section 8 (the “Arbitration Provision”). As used in this Arbitration Provision, “Claim” shall include any past, present, or future claim, dispute, or controversy involving you (or persons claiming through or connected with you), on the one hand, and us on the other hand, relating to or arising out of this Agreement, and/or the activities or relationships that involve, lead to, or result from this Agreement, including the validity or enforceability of this Arbitration Provision, any part thereof, or the entire Agreement. Claims are subject to arbitration regardless of whether they arise from contract; tort (intentional or otherwise); a constitution, statute, common law, or principles of equity; or otherwise. Claims include matters arising as initial claims, counterclaims, cross-claims, third-party claims, or otherwise. Please note that you may continue to assert Claims in small claims court, if your Claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. The scope of this Arbitration Provision is to be given the broadest possible interpretation that is enforceable.

8.2. Applicability of the Federal Arbitration Act; Arbitrator’s Powers

This Arbitration Provision is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce and shall be governed by and enforceable under the Federal Arbitration Act (the “FAA”). The arbitrator will apply substantive law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations. The arbitrator may award damages or other types of relief permitted by applicable substantive law, subject to the limitations set forth in this Arbitration Provision. The arbitrator will not be bound by judicial rules of procedure and evidence that would apply in a court. The arbitrator shall take steps to reasonably protect confidential information.

8.3. Informal Dispute Resolution

If a Claim arises, our goal is to address your concerns and, if we are unable to do so, to provide you with a neutral and cost-effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. You agree that before filing any claim in arbitration, you will first submit your Claim to us by email at [email protected] and provide us with the opportunity to resolve your concern prior to initiating arbitration.

8.4. Arbitration Procedures

The party initiating arbitration shall do so with the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) or Judicial Alternatives and Mediation Services (“JAMS”). The arbitration shall be conducted according to, and the location of the arbitration shall be determined in accordance with, the rules and policies of the administrator selected, except to the extent the rules conflict with this Arbitration Provision or any countervailing law. If you have any questions concerning the AAA or would like to obtain a copy of the AAA arbitration rules, you may call 1(800) 778-7879 or visit the AAA’s web site at: www.adr.org. If you have any questions concerning JAMS or would like to obtain a copy of the JAMS arbitration rules, you may call 1(800) 352-5267 or visit their web site at: www.jamsadr.com. In the case of a conflict between the rules and policies of the administrator and this Arbitration Provision, this Arbitration Provision shall control, subject to countervailing law, unless all parties to the arbitration consent to have the rules and policies of the administrator apply. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, or any other location we agree to.

8.5. Arbitration Fees

If we initiate arbitration, we shall pay all the administrator’s filing costs and administrative fees (other than hearing fees). If you initiate arbitration, filing costs and administrative fees (other than hearing fees) shall be paid in accordance with the rules of the administrator selected, or in accordance with countervailing law if contrary to the administrator’s rules. We shall pay the administrator’s hearing fees for one full day of arbitration hearings. Fees for hearings that exceed one day will be paid by the party requesting the hearing, unless the administrator’s rules or applicable law require otherwise, or you request that we pay them and we agree to do so. Each party shall bear the expense of its own attorneys’ fees, except as otherwise provided by law. If a statute gives you the right to recover any of these fees, these statutory rights shall apply in the arbitration notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein.

8.6. Appeals

Within thirty (30) days of a final award by the arbitrator, any party may appeal the award for reconsideration by a three-arbitrator panel selected according to the rules of the arbitrator administrator. In the event of such an appeal, any opposing party may cross-appeal within thirty (30) days after notice of the appeal. The panel will reconsider de novo all aspects of the initial award that are appealed. Costs and conduct of any appeal shall be governed by this Arbitration Provision and the administrator’s rules, in the same way as the initial arbitration proceeding. Any award by the individual arbitrator that is not subject to appeal, and any panel award on appeal, shall be final and binding, except for any appeal right under the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.

8.7. No Class Actions

NO ARBITRATION SHALL PROCEED ON A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE BASIS (INCLUDING AS PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ON BEHALF OF OTHERS), EVEN IF THE CLAIM OR CLAIMS THAT ARE THE SUBJECT OF THE ARBITRATION HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN ASSERTED (OR COULD HAVE BEEN ASSERTED) IN A COURT AS CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE ACTIONS IN A COURT. Unless consented to in writing by all parties to the arbitration, no party to the arbitration may join, consolidate, or otherwise bring claims for or on behalf of two or more individuals or unrelated corporate entities in the same arbitration unless those persons are parties to a single transaction. Unless consented to in writing by all parties to the arbitration, an award in arbitration shall determine the rights and obligations of the named parties only, and only with respect to the claims in arbitration, and shall not (a) determine the rights, obligations, or interests of anyone other than a named party, or resolve any Claim of anyone other than a named party; nor (b) make an award for the benefit of, or against, anyone other than a named party. No administrator or arbitrator shall have the power or authority to waive, modify, or fail to enforce this Section 8.7, and any attempt to do so, whether by rule, policy, arbitration decision or otherwise, shall be invalid and unenforceable. Any challenge to the validity of this Section 8.7 shall be determined exclusively by a court and not by the administrator or any arbitrator.

8.8. Survival and Severability of Arbitration Provision

This Arbitration Provision shall survive the termination of this Agreement. If any portion of this Arbitration Provision other than Section 8.7 is deemed invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portions of this Arbitration Provision shall nevertheless remain valid and in force. If there is a final judicial determination that applicable law precludes enforcement of this Arbitration Provision’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief or particular term, then that claim (and only that claim) or that term (and only that term) must be severed from the Arbitration Provision and may be brought in court. If an arbitration is brought on a class, representative, or collective basis, and the limitations on such proceedings in Section 8.7 are finally adjudicated pursuant to the last sentence of Section 8.7 to be unenforceable, then no arbitration shall be had. In no event shall any invalidation be deemed to authorize an arbitrator to determine Claims or make awards beyond those authorized in this Arbitration Provision.

8.9. Judicial Forum for Claims

Except as otherwise required by applicable law, in the event that this Arbitration Provision is found not to apply to you or your Claim, you and the Bank agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the federal or state courts of Virginia. Both you and the Bank consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there. All parties agree to waive our right to a jury trial.

8.10. Waiver of Right to Litigate

THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO LITIGATE CLAIMS THROUGH A COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY, BUT ARE HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY WAIVING THAT RIGHT BY AGREEING TO THIS AGREEMENT AND ARBITRATION PROVISION.


Globalfy to complete. See comment above.

Last Modified: 02/15/2022

Please read this Globalfy VISA Debit Cardholder Agreement (the “Agreement”) carefully and retain it for your future reference. This Agreement applies to all transactions resulting from the use of your Debit Card (the “Card”) through an automated teller machine (ATM), a Point-of-Sale (POS) terminal or any other use of the Card(s), whether electronic or not, which has been made available to you by Globalfy, LLC (“Program Partner”), the program partner responsible for managing the Card program, in partnership with Blue Ridge Bank, N.A. (the “Bank”), member of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”).

Please read this Agreement carefully and keep it for your records. The agreement you make with us, and the rights and obligations we both have, are governed by and interpreted according to the Commonwealth of Virginia and federal law. This Agreement, together with other agreements or disclosures you may receive from us, such as the Globalfy Business Deposit Account Agreement (“Account Agreement”), establishes our and your rights and obligations.

When you see the words “we,” “us,” or “our” in this Agreement, it refers to the Bank, the Program Partner acting as agent for the Bank, and any of the Bank’s affiliates, successors, assignees, agents or service providers. When you see the words “you” or “your,” it refers to you, the owner of the Account, as well as your personal representatives, executors, administrators, and successors.

You authorize us to pay from your deposit account (“Account”) the total amount of any transaction originated by use of the Card. You also agree that the use of the Card described in this Agreement shall be subject to the rules, regulations and fees governing each deposit account which is accessed by such Card, including but not limited to the Bank’s right of set-off.

1. Activating the Card and Setting a PIN
1.1. Card Agreement Acceptance and Card Activation
This Card requires activation before you may use it. You may activate the Card by calling 1-833-333-0417. Your activation and use of the Card mean that you agree to the terms and conditions described in this Agreement.

If you do not want to activate the Card, you should destroy and dispose of it.

1.2. Personal Identification Number (PIN)
You will be required to select a 4-digit personal identification number (PIN) prior to using the Card for the first time. The 4-digit numerical PIN issued to you is for security purposes. The PIN represents your signature authorizing transactions made using your Card, identifies the bearer of the Card, and serves to validate and authenticate the directions given to complete the Card transactions.

YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR SAFEKEEPING YOUR PIN. YOU AGREE TO TAKE ALL REASONABLE PRECAUTIONS SO NO ONE ELSE LEARNS YOUR PIN AND YOU AGREE NOT TO DISCLOSE OR OTHERWISE MAKE YOUR PIN AVAILABLE TO ANYONE NOT AUTHORIZED TO SIGN ON YOUR DEPOSIT AND/OR LOAN ACCOUNT(S).

Your PIN should NOT be written on the Card or anywhere it is available to others for use by lawful and/or unlawful means.

1.3. Permissible Uses of Your Card
You agree that you will use the Card only for business purposes and it will not be used for personal, household or family purposes.

2. Use of the Card
2.1. ATM Cash Deposits
With your PIN, you can use your Card to deposit cash into your Account at an in-network ATM. You can identify an in-network ATM by looking for the Allpoint logo on or near the ATM. You cannot make cash deposits at out-of-network ATMs.

2.2. ATM and Point-of-Sale PIN Withdrawals
With your PIN, you can use your Card to obtain cash from your Account up to the amount of your Available Balance at any ATM or any Point-of-Sale (“POS”) device in the United States that displays the Visa, VisaATM, Plus, Interlink, or Accel acceptance marks. Not all merchants will permit you to get cash back through their POS devices.

If you use an ATM, including a balance inquiry, you may be charged a fee by the ATM operator even if you do not complete a withdrawal. This ATM fee is a third-party fee assessed by the individual ATM operator only and is not assessed or controlled by us. This ATM fee amount will be charged to your Account in addition to any applicable fees disclosed in this Agreement or your Account Agreement.

2.3. Retail Card Purchases
You may use your Card to make purchases using your PIN at any merchant with a POS device anywhere that displays the Visa, VisaATM, Plus, Interlink, or Accel acceptance marks. You may also use your Card to make purchases without your PIN anywhere that Visa debit cards are accepted.

2.4. Split Transactions
You can instruct a merchant to charge your Card for part of a purchase and pay any remaining amount with cash or another card. This is called a “split transaction.” Some merchants do not permit split transactions. If you wish to conduct a split transaction, you must tell the merchant the exact amount you would like charged to your Card. If you fail to inform the merchant you would like to complete a split transaction and you do not have sufficient available funds in your Account to cover the entire purchase amount, your Card is likely to be declined.

2.5. Card-Not-Present Transactions
You may make retail card purchases without presenting your Card by providing information from your Card, such as transactions done by internet or telephone. Conducting transactions in this way has the same legal effect as if you used the Card itself. For security reasons, the amount or number of card-not-present transactions you are permitted to make may be limited.

2.6. Virtual Card Use
When you open an Account, you may also receive a virtual card (“Virtual Card”) represented by a 16-digit card number, a 3-digit card verification value (“CVV”) number, and an expiration date. The Virtual Card is separate from your physical Card and can be managed through the Online Banking Services (see Section 1.3 of the Account Agreement). We will issue you a replacement Virtual Card when it expires. The Virtual Card accesses the available funds in your Account to make card-not-present transactions (see Section 2.5) anywhere Visa debit cards are accepted in the same way as your physical Card. The Virtual Card can also be added to a digital wallet (see Section 2.7) in the same way as your physical Card. Your use of the Virtual Card is subject to the terms of this Agreement, including transaction limitations, to the same extent as your physical Card.

2.7. Use of the Card with Digital Wallets
A digital wallet (“Wallet”) provides another way for you to make purchases with your Card. A digital wallet is a service provided by another company (such as Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay, etc.), that allows you to use your Card to pay for transactions where the Wallet is accepted. A Wallet may not be accepted at all places where your Card is otherwise accepted, and your Card may not be eligible for all the features and functionalities of the Wallet. Any use of your Card in or through the Wallet continues to be subject to all terms and conditions of this Agreement. We may terminate your access to or use of your Card with a Wallet at any time and for any reason, including if you violate any of the terms or conditions of this Agreement.

You can add or remove your Card from a Wallet by following the instructions provided by the Wallet provider. By doing this, you agree to allow us to share your Card information with the Wallet provider. You may be required to take additional steps to authenticate your identity before your Card is added to the Wallet. We do not charge you any additional fees for adding your Card to a Wallet or for using your Card in the Wallet. However, any fees and charges that would apply when you use your Card outside the Wallet will also apply when you use a Wallet to make purchases with your Card or otherwise access your Card. The Wallet provider and other third parties such as wireless companies or data service providers may charge you fees. The digital version of your Card in a Wallet may, in our sole discretion, be automatically updated or upgraded without notice to you.

We are not the provider of the Wallet, and we are not responsible for providing the Wallet service to you or for ensuring that your Card is compatible with any Wallet service. We are only responsible for supplying information to the Wallet provider to allow usage of your Card in the Wallet as you have requested. We are not responsible for any failure of the Wallet, any mobile device you use with the Wallet, or the inability to use the Wallet for any transaction. We are not responsible for the performance of services by any Wallet provider or any other third parties regarding any agreement you enter. We do not control the privacy and security of any of your information that may be held by the Wallet provider. Any information held by the Wallet provider is governed by the privacy policy given to you by the Wallet provider. If you have location services enabled on your mobile device, the location of your mobile device may be collected and shared by the Wallet provider in accordance with their respective data and privacy policies, including with us. If you request to add your Card to a Wallet, you authorize us to collect, transmit, store, use and share information about you, your mobile device, and your use of the Card in accordance with our privacy policy, as amended from time to time, available at https://www.mybrb.com/privacy-policy.html.

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY ARE WE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSSES OR DAMAGES RESULTING FROM YOUR USE OF A WALLET, YOUR USE OF THE CARD OR VIRTUAL CARD IN CONNECTION WITH A WALLET, OR A MOBILE DEVICE.

If you use a Wallet, you should protect your Wallet and your mobile device as you would your Card. If your Wallet or mobile device is compromised, lost or stolen, you should also consider your Card lost or stolen and notify us immediately. Please see Section 7 for instructions for reporting a lost or stolen Card.

If you have any questions, disputes, or complaints about a Wallet, contact the Wallet provider using the information given to you by the provider.

2.8. Foreign Transactions
Charges from foreign merchants and financial institutions may be made in a foreign currency. We will bill you in U.S. dollars based on the exchange rate on the day we settle the transaction, plus any special currency exchanges charges that may be imposed by us, the Visa network and/or by any third-party used to complete the transaction.

The exchange rate between the transaction currency and the billing currency used for processing international transactions is a rate selected by Visa from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date. This 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 may be different from the rate in effect on the date of your transaction and the date it is posted to your Account.

Regardless of whether the transaction is made in foreign currency or in U.S. dollars, additional fees may apply to all international transactions using the Card. Please refer to our current fee schedule for more information about our fees.

2.9. Card Authorization Holds
When you use your Card to purchase goods or services or to obtain cash from a merchant, the merchant may request preauthorization (“Card Authorization”) for the transaction. If the merchant makes such a request and there are sufficient available funds in your Account, we will approve the transaction and place a temporary hold on the funds in your Account. This hold will reduce the Available Balance in your Account. The amount of this temporary hold will usually be the amount of the Card Authorization. The hold will remain on your Account until the merchant sends the final amount of the transaction to us and requests payment (“Settlement”). In most cases, if the merchant does not request Settlement or is delayed in requesting settlement, the hold will automatically be removed after three (3) days. However, for transactions with certain merchants, such as hotels, the hold may remain on your account up to seven (7) days.

Please note that the merchant controls the timing of both the Card Authorization and Settlement. This means that a merchant may initiate Settlement after the Card Authorization hold has already been removed. If the hold is removed and you spend the funds in your Account before Settlement, it may cause your Account to overdraw. In addition, the Card Authorization amount that the merchant requests may be different than the Settlement amount. It is therefore important that you keep track of your transactions and your Account. We cannot stop a Card transaction once we have approved a Card Authorization and you will be responsible for repaying any negative balance that may occur in your Account.

2.10. Customized Debit Card Limits
As part of the Online Banking Services, you may be given the ability to establish customized debit card transaction limits that are lower than the limits that are otherwise applicable to POS transactions and ATM withdrawals for yourself or any secondary cardholders to help you manage and control your spending.

3. Card Limitations
There may be limits on the amount and frequency of withdrawals and deposits you can make using your Card. Please refer to the Account Agreement for any limits that may apply to your Account.

4. Returns and Refunds
Please be aware of the merchant’s return policies before using your Card to make a purchase. Neither the Bank nor the Program Partner is responsible for the delivery, quality, safety, legality or any other aspect of the goods or services you purchase using your Card. If you have a problem with a purchase that you made with your Card or if you have a dispute with the merchant, you must handle it directly with the merchant. If you are entitled to a refund for any reason for goods or services obtained using your Card, you agree to accept credits to your Card for the refund and agree to the refund policy of the merchant. The amounts credited to your Card for refunds may not be available for up to five (5) days from the date the refund transaction occurs.

5. Additional Benefits from Visa and Fraud Alerts Program
5.1. Additional Benefits
Your Card may also be eligible for certain benefits provided by Visa. Please see the Visa Debit Card Benefits Guide (https://usa.visa.com/support/consumer/debit-cards.html) for a full description of all additional benefits to which you may be eligible, specifically Visa Zero Liability Benefits (https://usa.visa.com/pay-with-visa/visa-chip-technology-consumers/zero-liability-policy.html). You are also eligible for Visa’s Fraud Alerts Program.

5.2. Fraud Alerts Program Overview
The Visa Fraud Alerts Program provides you with alerts via email, phone call, and/or text messages when Visa’s fraud monitoring system detects suspicious activity involving your Card.

Messaging frequency depends on account activity. For more information, text HELP to 23618 or call 1-833-333-0417. To cancel fraud text messaging services at any time reply STOP to any alert from your mobile device.

For Fraud alerts support, call 1-833-333-0417. By giving us your mobile number, you agree that Fraud Alerts text messaging is authorized to notify you of suspected incidents of financial or identity fraud. HELP instructions: Text HELP to 23618 for help. Standard text messaging rates will apply.

5.2.1. Stop Instructions
Text STOP to 23618 to cancel.

5.2.2. Release of Liability
Alerts sent via SMS may not be delivered to you if your phone is not in the range of a transmission site, or if sufficient network capacity is not available at a particular time. Even within coverage, factors beyond the control of wireless carriers may interfere with messages delivery for which the carrier is not responsible. We do not guarantee that alerts will be delivered.

6. Fees
There may be fees associated with your use of the Card. Please refer to the Account Agreement for any fees that may apply to your use of the Card.

7. Errors and Lost or Stolen Cards
7.1. Error Resolution
You may contact us by calling 1-833-333-0417 with questions concerning transactions involving your Card.

You may also contact us at the number above to report suspected errors or unauthorized transactions. Be sure to contact us immediately if you believe that an error or unauthorized transaction has occurred or may occur concerning your Card. You must contact us no later than thirty (30) days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the suspected error or unauthorized transaction appeared. You must provide us with the following information:

– Your name and Account number.
– A description of the error or the transaction you are unsure about and why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.

8. Electronic Fund Transfers
Your Card allows you to withdraw funds from your Account up to the Available Balance through Electronic Fund Transfers (“EFTs”). EFTs are transactions that are processed by electronic means and include, among others, ATM withdrawals and point-of-sale purchases at merchants.

Your Account Agreement provides you with the information and terms about the EFTs that are permitted on your Account.

Your Card allows the following types of EFTs:

Transfers to or from your Account to a merchant or other third party by providing the third party with your Card or Card information
ATM deposits and withdrawals using your Card


8.2. Limitations on EFTs
There are limitations on the frequency and amount of transactions you can make to or from your Account using your Card. These limits are different for each type of transaction. For limits that apply to Card transactions, please refer to Section 3 of this Agreement. For other limitations that may apply to your Account, please refer to your Account Agreement. Your Card may also be subject to security-related limits. These limits may change from time to time.

8.3. Documentation of Your Transactions
You will be provided with information about each transaction using your Card on your Account statements. Please refer to your Account Agreement for more information about statements and other ways to view your transaction history and other information.

8.4. Recurring Card Payments (Preauthorized Transfers)
If you authorize a merchant or other third party to automatically initiate a payment using your Card on a recurring basis, you must do so in writing. If you are issued a new Card with a different expiration date or a different number, we may (but are not obligated to) provide your new Card number and expiration date to a merchant or other third party with whom you have set up a recurring pre-authorized card payment to facilitate the continuation of your authorized recurring transactions.

If you do not wish Visa to provide your new Card number and/or expiration date to merchants or other third parties, please let us know by emailing us at [email protected].

8.4.1. How to Request a Stop Payment
If you authorize a merchant or other third party to take payments from your Account using your Card through recurring card payments, you can place a stop payment on one or all of those payments by contacting us by email at [email protected] at least three (3) business days before the next payment is scheduled to be made.

You must provide us with (1) your name, (2) your Account number, (3) the company or person taking the payments, and (4) the date and amount of the scheduled payment you wish to stop. If you want all future payments from that company or person stopped, be sure to tell us that as well. If you do not provide us with the correct information, such as the correct payee or the correct amount of the payment you wish to stop, we may not be able to stop the payment.

You may be charged a fee for each stop payment you request under your Account Agreement. Please refer to your Account Agreement for fees applicable to your Account.

8.4.2. Our Business Days
Our business days are Monday through Friday, excluding federal holidays.

8.5. Your Liability for Unauthorized EFTs
Contact us immediately if you believe that an unauthorized EFT has occurred or may occur concerning your Account, or if your Card has been lost, stolen or compromised. Calling us at 1-833-333-0417 is the best way of keeping your losses to a minimum. Your liability for unauthorized EFTs is outlined in your Account Agreement. Please refer to your Account Agreement for details.

8.6. Our Liability for a Failure To Complete A Transaction, Unauthorized Transactions or Failure to Stop a Payment
We will respond to notices of errors or unauthorized EFTs and requests to stop payments in a commercially reasonable manner and time. Our liability for a failure to complete a transaction, an unauthorized transaction, or failure to stop a payment is limited to terms described in your Account Agreement. Please refer to your Account Agreement for details.

9. Change of Terms
We can change the term of this Agreement at any time. We will provide advance notice to you of a change in terms where required by law.

10. Account Information Disclosed to Third Parties
We will disclose information to third parties about your account or the transfers you make:

– Where it is necessary for completing the transaction
– To verify the existence and condition of your account with us (such as to confirm that sufficient funds are available to cover specific transactions) upon the request from a third party (such as a credit bureau or merchant)

You can more fully understand how we use your information by referring to the Bank’s Privacy Policy at https://www.mybrb.com/privacy-policy.html and the Third-Party Program Service Provider’s Policy at https://www.unit.co/clients-privacy-policy.

11. Cancellation
We may refuse to issue, deactivate, revoke, suspend or cancel your Card at any time with or without notice to you, other than as required by law. This includes deactivating or canceling your Card if it has been lost or stolen to prevent unauthorized transactions. You agree not to use your Card once it has been deactivated, revoked, suspended or canceled. We may also limit your use of the Card, including limiting or prohibiting specific types of transactions.
