B. Account Ownership
If an Eligible Account is owned by more than one person, or has more than one Authorized Representative, each person individually may provide us with instructions, may make any decision, obtain any information, or make any request associated with the Eligible Account and related Online and Mobile Banking services, to the extent allowed by agreements covering the Eligible Accounts.
If someone has control over or is an owner of a business (an “Authorized Representative”) that person can assign or remove authorized signers within Online and Mobile Banking that have transaction capabilities on the account. Authorized signers within Online and Mobile Banking cannot remove other authorized signers’ rights or access within Online and Mobile Banking.
Account owners must notify AllSouth when an Authorized Representative is no longer authorized to conduct business on the account, which notifications shall be later confirmed by you in writing. If you tell us an Authorized Representative is no longer authorized, we will consider their transactions unauthorized only when:
- You tell us that you did not want or intend the transaction; and
- The Authorized Representative performs them after you let us know they are no longer authorized; and
- We have reasonable opportunity to act on your notification.
You agree that:
- Each of your Authorized Representatives will be acting as your agent and will be bound by this Agreement and other agreements governing the Eligible Accounts or Online and Mobile Banking services.
- We may rely and act on the instructions of Authorized Representatives.
- All transactions that an Authorized Representative performs on an Eligible Account or Online and Mobile Banking service, including those you did not want or intend, are transactions authorized by you. You are solely responsible for those transactions.
- You will be responsible for ensuring each Authorized Representative maintains the confidentiality of their User ID, Password, or other login identification.
- If we get conflicting information, or if we believe that an Eligible Account’s security or our security may be at risk as a result of an Authorized Representative, we may at our sole discretion end the Authorized Representative’s access to the Service, an Eligible Account, and/or Online and Mobile Banking service.
C. Signature Requirement Waiver
Any requirements to verify two or more signatures on any item (such as checks) does not apply to electronic or telephone transfers. This means that you’re allowing an Authorized Representative on your Eligible Account to individually make electronic or telephone transfers, even though their authority to transfer or withdraw funds from your account by some other means (such as by check) must be exercised jointly with one or more persons in the branch. This provision controls and takes precedence over any conflicting provision in any other agreements you have with us.
D. Fees and Monthly Service Charges
Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement or in AllSouth’s fee schedule, there is no monthly service charge or fee for accessing your Eligible Accounts through the Service. In addition to any fees described in this Agreement, depending on how you use the Service, you might incur charges for:
(i) Normal account fees or service charges;
(ii) Any internet provider fees; and
(iii) Any insufficient funds fee, returned item, overdraft or similar fee may apply if you schedule payments or transfers and your Available Balance is not sufficient to process the transaction on the date scheduled, or in the case of a personal check, on the date the check is presented to AllSouth for payment.

We are not required to notify you before terminating access. Additionally, we are not required to reinstate or re-activate your access. For joint accounts, both individuals with access will have their own User ID and Password. One user cannot unilaterally terminate the access of another joint accountholder. However, AllSouth reserves the right terminate any all access to the Service for all joint accountholders at the request of one joint accountholder.

When enrolling, you will be prompted to choose a User ID and Password. You must have a User ID and Password that meets AllSouth’s security standard to use the Services. You may change your password at any time. We recommend that you change your password at least every 90 days.
You must provide your full name, address, phone number, and email address that matches the information on our system. You agree to notify AllSouth when you change your address, phone number, or email address. Failure to notify AllSouth of such change may affect the delivery of Eligible Account and Service documentation, including, but not limited to, all year-end tax reporting documents. To make certain changes to your contact information and preferences and to submit certain transactions within Online and Mobile Banking, we may send you text message codes from time-to-time to allow us to verify your identity.
Your session time is unlimited, but to help prevent unauthorized access to your authentication information and ensure the security of your accounts, we will end your online session if we have detected no activity for fifteen (15) minutes. This is to protect you in case you accidentally leave your PC or Mobile Device unattended after you login. When you return to your PC or Mobile Device, you will be promoted to re-enter your authentication information.
When you sign onto the Service using your User ID and Password you authorize AllSouth to follow the instructions we receive relating to your Eligible Accounts and to charge and credit your Eligible Accounts according to those instructions. You agree to keep all User ID and Password information, as well as any codes we text message to you as part of the identity confirmation process, confidential and to take all reasonable precautions to protect the security of this information. You acknowledge that no person from AllSouth will ever ask you for your Password and that our employees do not need and should not ask for your Password. You therefore agree never to provide your User ID or Password to anyone claiming to represent AllSouth. If you give your User ID or Password or make it available to another person, you authorize that person to access your Eligible Accounts through the Services and to give AllSouth instructions relating to your Eligible Accounts as an Authorized Representative. You also authorize us to comply with those instructions even if that person exceeds your authorization.

Any person initiating the foregoing transactions will be deemed an authorized user except to the extent prohibited by applicable law or regulation.
E. Hours of Operation
You can access information through the Services seven (7) days a week, twenty-four (24) hours a day. There may be times, however, when all or part of the Services may be unavailable due to system outages or maintenance. AllSouth will assume no responsibility for any damage or delay that may result from such unavailability.
F. Viruses and Other Protection
You are responsible for taking and maintaining security precautions to protect your computer, data, and system. You agree that AllSouth is not responsible for any electronic virus, spyware, or malware that you may encounter while using the Services. AllSouth encourages you to routinely scan your computer using up-to-date, reliable virus, spyware, and malware protection products to detect and remove virus, spyware, or malware found. If undetected or unrepaired, a virus, spyware, or malware may corrupt and destroy your programs, files, or even your hardware. You are responsible for maintaining and applying anti-virus software, security patches, firewalls, and other security measures with respect to your operating systems, and for protecting, securing, and backing up any data and information stored in or on your operating systems. AllSouth is not responsible for any failures or errors resulting from defects in or malfunctions of any software installed on your operating systems or accessed through an internet connection.
- 5. Electronic Disclosures and Communications

- (iii) to a Mobile Device you have designated;
- (iv) to the extent permissible by law, by access to a website that AllSouth will generally designate for such purpose; or

Delivery of an electronic communication by any these methods will be considered “in writing” and you intend that the electronic communications have the same legal effect as written and signed paper communications. Any notice or communication AllSouth gives you concerning the Service and/or your Eligible Account(s) is effective when AllSouth sends you an electronic message or when AllSouth mails or delivers the notice/communication to you at the address AllSouth has for you in AllSouth’s records. Any notice or communication AllSouth sends you will be deemed to have been received by you within three (3) days of being sent. If any of your Eligible Accounts has more than one co-owner, notice or communication to any one co-owner will be considered effective notice or communication to all. You may request a paper copy of the information up to sixty (60) days after receiving an electronic message. Subject to applicable law, updates to this Agreement, as well as all disclosures, notices, or other communications regarding the Services will be provided to you within the Services. You can obtain paper copy of any of these documents by contacting AllSouth.
You will continue to receive paper statements and similar account materials that you currently receive by mail, unless you enroll in online statements as set forth below.
- 6. Security
In addition to your User ID and Password, we may also require additional security procedures for certain transactions. These additional security procedures may require special hardware, software or third-party services. To enhance the security of your Eligible Accounts and Online and Mobile Banking Services, we may also offer you additional, optional security procedures. These could include personal reference questions and answers, random number generators, or one-time passwords. We may also require that you confirm your identity by inputting a confirmation code that is sent to you by text message or by telephone call. You agree to keep all security codes, personal reference questions and answers, random number generators, one-time passwords, tokens, confirmation codes, User IDs and Passwords confidential. You should notify AllSouth immediately if you think any of these security procedures have been disclosed or if such information has been lost, stolen, or an unauthorized person has accessed your Eligible Account.
The Security Procedures with regard to instructions transmitted to AllSouth via the Services may include the following:
- User ID: the authorization of users and the assignment by AllSouth of individual User IDs for such users.
- Password: the creation by each user of an individual user Password, which must be used in conjunction with a user ID to access the Services.
- Security Questions: the use of a limited number of security questions to verify the identity of the user in the event unusual login or transaction activity is detected.
- Multi-Factor Identification: the use of codes, including one-time text message codes which allow AllSouth to verify your identity.
B. User ID and Password Updates
You can change your User ID and Password within Online and Mobile Banking at any time.
User IDs and Passwords must meet the standards we establish. These standards are available for your reference whenever you create or change a User ID and/or password. We may require you to change or update your User ID and/or Password at any time. If we change these standards, you may have to change your Password to meet the new standards. We are not required to give you advance notice that we have changed the standards, or that we are requiring you to change or update your Password. You are responsible for keeping your Password confidential. We recommend you select a unique User ID and Password combination for use only with the Service, and memorize it rather than writing it down.
C. Protecting Your Security
Even though information exchanged through the Service is protected by advanced encryption techniques while being transmitted, you still need to protect your User ID and Password for the Service.
You must notify us immediately if you suspect fraudulent activity on your Eligible Account or if you believe that:
- Your Password may have been lost or stolen.
- A Mobile Device or PC you use to access the Service has been lost, stolen or compromised.
- Someone viewed, downloaded, or deleted electronic records from your Eligible Account without your permission.
In the event of unauthorized use of your User ID and Password, or any other security or authentication technique we use, you may be liable for resulting losses, to the extent permitted by law.
D. Login Credentials for Mobile Banking
To use the Mobile Banking Application, you must have a compatible Mobile Device or tablet such as an Apple iPhone, iPad, or Android device, which can access the internet or a wireless data plan. You are responsible for the selection, installation, maintenance, and operation of your Mobile Device and its software. AllSouth is not responsible for any errors, failures, or malfunctions of your Mobile Device, software, or for any computer virus or related problems that may occur with your use of the Mobile Banking Application. You are responsible for ensuring that your Mobile Device and software are compatible with our system. We reserve the right to change our system requirements from time to time. The Mobile Banking Application may not be accessible or may have limited utility over some network carriers. We cannot guarantee and are not responsible for the availability of data services provided by your mobile carrier, such as data outages, unavailability of data plans, or “out-of-range” issues. We reserve the right to support only certain types of mobile devices and mobile operating systems. Note: some browser software may store user names and security codes to facilitate the future use of a website. For security reasons, you agree to disable this feature in your browser.
E. Your Role in Preventing Misuse; Reliance on Your Instructions
You understand the importance of your role in preventing misuse of your Eligible Account through the Online and Mobile Banking Service and you agree to promptly examine your statements for each of your Eligible Accounts as soon as you receive it. This obligation is in addition to any obligations you have related to your Eligible Accounts or the Other Agreements to promptly review your statements and report errors.
You agree to protect the confidentiality of your Eligible Account, Eligible Account number, User ID and Password, and any other personally identifiable information. You understand that personal information by itself or together with information related to your Eligible Account may allow unauthorized access to your Eligible Account. Your User ID and Password are intended to provide security against unauthorized entry and access to your Eligible Account. Data transferred via the Services utilizes identification technology to verify that the sender and receiver of the system transmissions can be appropriately identified by each other. Notwithstanding AllSouth’s efforts to ensure that the system is secure, you acknowledge that the internet is inherently insecure and that all data transfers, including email, occur openly on the internet and potentially can be monitored and read by others. AllSouth cannot and does not warrant that all data transfers utilizing the Services or any email transmitted to AllSouth will not be monitored or read by others.
We will rely and act on instructions we receive through the Online and Mobile Banking Application. You are responsible and liable for those transactions to the extent allowed by law and as provided in this Agreement and all of the Other Agreements. All such instructions will be considered as having been given to us directly by you and shall have the same authority as your written signature in authorizing us to comply with the instructions. You agree that your use of a keypad, mouse, or other device to select an item, button, icon, or other similar act/action or to otherwise provide us instructions while using the Services or in accessing or making any transaction regarding any agreement, acknowledgement, consent, disclosure, or conditions, constitutes your signature, acceptance, and agreement as if actually signed in writing. Further, you agree that no certification authority or other third party verification is necessary to validate your electronic signature; and that the lack of such certification or third party verification will not in any way affect the enforceability of your signature or any resulting contract between you and us.
You are responsible for maintaining current software upgrades and patch management. Additionally, anti-virus, anti-malware, and anti-spyware programs and firewalls should be maintained on all your systems, computers, Mobile Devices, and Access Devices. Additional security is also established by use of multi-factor authentication by AllSouth. You agree that AllSouth shall not have access to any passwords and can only reset such passwords. You shall be responsible for internal and external intrusion testing of your network system. You are responsible for systematic or operational risk contingency planning with regard to your network system. You are responsible for maintenance and connectivity of telecommunications with your internet service provider. In the event AllSouth is experiencing issues with the Services, AllSouth may, in its sole discretion, attempt to notify you of such issues.
You bear the risk of using Online and Mobile Banking, including the risk of erroneous and fraudulent transactions and the risk of all transactions using your User ID and Password, and your liability for any Online Banking transactions where AllSouth followed the Security Procedures is unlimited. Unless otherwise required by applicable law, we are responsible for only the performing the Online and Mobile Banking Services as delineated in this Agreement. We will not be liable to you for failure to make a requested transfer or otherwise in the instances set forth above. If the transaction is made using your User ID and Password, the transfer will be treated as your authorized transaction. You agree to keep your Password secure and strictly confidential, instruct each user with whom you give your Password not to disclose it to any unauthorized person, and immediately notify AllSouth and select a new password if you believe your Password may have become known by an unauthorized person. AllSouth will not be liable for any unauthorized payment or transfer using your password that occurs before you have notified us of unauthorized use and AllSouth has had a reasonable opportunity to act. AllSouth has the right to suspend and cancel your User ID and Password even without receiving such notice from you, if AllSouth suspects that your information is being used in an unauthorized, fraudulent, or illegal way. You agree that AllSouth may send notices and other communications, including password confirmations, to the current address or email address shown in AllSouth’s records, whether or not that address includes a designation for delivery to the attention of a particular individual. You further agree that AllSouth will not be responsible or liable to you in any way if information is intercepted by an unauthorized person, either in transit or at your place of business.

When accounts are linked through Online and Mobile Banking or on a combined statement, you understand and agree that each owner and each signer on a linked account may be able to view information about all linked accounts.
- 8. Online Statements and Documents
Many account documents — including statements, tax documents, and legal notices — can be delivered online in lieu of paper documents for certain Eligible Accounts. You have the option to view, save, or print PDF versions of your account documents from AllSouth’s Website or the Service via desktop, tablet or Mobile Device.
Any legal notices or disclosures about your Eligible Account that would normally accompany your paper account statement, or that we would mail to you, may be delivered to you electronically. In some cases, we must continue to mail paper statements, legal notices and disclosures even if you elect to receive them electronically.
We may offer you additional options for delivery of various communication related to your Eligible Account. The following is a brief description of the various features of and requirements for using online statements and documents. We may add to, modify, or delete any feature of online statements and documents at our sole discretion.
B. Eligible Accounts
Most Eligible Account statements and documents can be delivered online or electronically. You can determine online statement eligibility by signing on to AllSouth’s Website or Online Banking Services.
Online statements and documents are available for certain Eligible Accounts Services if you have completed enrollment in the Service and provided us with a valid email address. By submitting the enrollment request, you are giving your consent to receive statements and other documents in electronic form in lieu of periodic paper documents related to your Eligible Account. Once enrolled, we will send you an email notice notifying you when your statement or document is available on the Service. To ensure that you continue to receive such email notifications, you must notify us of any changes or updates to your email address. We may revoke your online-only statement and document option and change your delivery preference to U.S. Mail if you don’t maintain a valid email address. If an Eligible Account has multiple owners, your consent to enroll constitutes the consent of all joint account holders. A communication to any account owner will be treated as a communication to all.
D. Check Images
For Deposit Accounts, you may view online images of the individual checks posted to the account. If you currently receive an account statement with check images in paper format, once you choose online-only statements and documents, you will no longer receive the check images as part of the statement. You can ask us to mail a photocopy of a canceled check to you (additional fees may apply).
Once enrolled, you can access your online statements and documents (including legal notices and disclosures) on our Website and Online Banking Services. Access to statements via Mobile Banking is not available.
Statements are available online for up to a maximum of 18 months, depending on the type of account enrolled. Statements for some types of Eligible Accounts are available for shorter time frames. If you didn’t choose online-only delivery when the account was first opened, there may be a gap in the historical statements available online for some types of Eligible Accounts. Additionally, if your Eligible Account does not entitle you to receive paper copies or images or certain documents such as cancelled checks, these services will not be provided through the Service.
For some types of Eligible Accounts, there may be a delay of up to several weeks after enrollment before you can start viewing statements and documents online. You can still request historical account statements (fees may apply); please refer to the applicable account agreement and disclosures for details.
F. Year-end Tax Reporting
Online year-end tax documents may be available to customers with certain account types who are enrolled in and provide a valid email address for the Service. You don’t have to complete a separate enrollment process to view your tax documents online. This option is available regardless of whether we also mail your paper tax documents.
You are entitled to receive paper versions of your tax documents by U.S. Mail. By selecting Online as your delivery preference, you are consenting to receive those tax documents electronically instead. Please make note of the following important information:
- Your consent applies to all the tax documents you have designated for Online delivery. The consent for each form designated will remain in effect for every year that form is required to be furnished until the consent is withdrawn in the manner provided below. Tax documents will remain available to you online until at least October 15 of the year in which they are delivered for Eligible Accounts (except for closed accounts, as provided in Section 4(b) of this Agreement).
- Your withdraw of consent to electronic delivery by changing your delivery preferences back to U.S. Mail in the Service, may not take effect for the upcoming tax season. Note that delivery preference changes will be reflected immediately on the Website but may take up to ten (10) Business Days to take effect.
- You may obtain a paper copy of any tax document we deliver electronically by calling our Call Center at (803)736-3110 or 1-800-272-0695. Requesting a paper copy of your electronically delivered tax document does not change your delivery preferences or withdraw your consent to electronic delivery.
- Tax documents will no longer be delivered to you electronically if you close the related account or end your Online and Mobile Banking relationship with us.
- You may update your contact information and email address within “Account Services” tab found on the menu in Online and Mobile Banking.

You will need the following technical requirements to access and print electronic communications:
- A current version of an Internet browser we support,
- A current version of a program that accurately reads and displays PDF files (such as Adobe Acrobat Reader), and
- A computer and an operating system capable of supporting all of the above.
You will also need a printer if you wish to print out and retain records on paper, and electronic storage if you wish to retain records in electronic form.
We always reserve the right to communicate with you in writing using U.S. Mail, regardless of what other options you have chosen.
H. Terminating Online Statements and Documents
We may terminate online delivery of statements and documents to you for one or more Eligible Accounts without notice.
You may withdraw your consent to receive electronic communications by updating your preference through the Service or by contacting us. Any withdrawal of your consent to receive electronic communications will be effective after we have a reasonable period of time to process your withdrawal, which shall not be less than ten (10) Business Days. We may treat an invalid email address as a withdrawal of your consent to receive electronic communications.
I. Obtaining Paper Copies.
You may obtain paper copies of electronic communications by printing them within the Service or by contacting us. We may charge you a reasonable fee, of which we will have provided you prior notice, for the delivery of paper copes of any communication provided to you electronically pursuant to this authorization. Requesting a paper copy of your electronically delivered document does not change your delivery preferences or withdraw your consent to electronic delivery.
J. Prompt Review of Electronic Statements.
You will be notified by email that your electronic statements are available to view in the Service. Your receipt of electronic statements does not in any way alter your obligation to promptly review your statements as set forth in the Other Agreements. You must promptly review your electronic statements and any accompanying items and notify us in writing immediately of any error, unauthorized transaction, or irregularity. If you allow someone else to access your electronic statements, you are still fully responsible for reviewing the electronic statement for any errors, unauthorized transactions, or other irregularities. All provisions as set forth in the Other Agreements shall continue to apply.
K. How to Contact AllSouth in Case of Errors or Questions About Your Transactions.
You should contact AllSouth as soon as possible if you think your statement is wrong or if you need more information about a transaction listed on your statement.
In additional to the obligations set forth in the Other Agreements governing failures to report unauthorized or fraudulent transactions, your failure to promptly report errors is subject to the following terms-
For Business Accounts: If you do not notify AllSouth of any said errors or irregularities within thirty-three (33) calendar days of the statement mailing date, the statement will be considered correct. You agree that AllSouth will not be liable or responsible for your loss for any forged, altered, or unauthorized check or otherwise fraudulent item drawn on your account if you have not reported the erroneous item to us in writing within thirty-three (33) calendar days of the statement mailing date of the statement first containing the erroneous item. If the same person has made two or more unauthorized transactions and you fail to notify AllSouth of the first one with this thirty-three (33) calendar day period, AllSouth will not be responsible for unauthorized transactions made by the same wrongdoer.
We also will not be liable for any items that are forged or altered in a manner not detectable by a reasonable person, including the unauthorized use of a facsimile signature machine.
For Consumer Accounts Only: Electronic fund transfers are subject to different time periods for notification of errors, as described in the “Electronic Funds Transfer Agreement and Disclosure” part of this Agreement.
- 9. CheckFree® RXP (Bill Pay Services)
Our bill payment service (“Bill Pay”) lets members schedule bill payments through Online and Mobile Banking Application . You must have at least one Eligible Account to use Bill Pay. You can use Bill Pay to make bill payments or pay people or companies. You authorize AllSouth to add Eligible Accounts that are loan accounts as payees. For certain providers, you may have to provide additional identification information to see the bill detail information from Bill Pay or Online and Mobile Banking Services; or you may have to visit your provider’s site directly to see bill detail information. You must make sure the identification information on your payee accounts is accurate and complete. We will use this information to facilitate your use of Bill Pay, and for accessing payee websites on your behalf.
There are limits on the amounts you can pay utilizing Bill Pay. The Bill Pay screens in Online and Mobile Banking will notify you if you attempt to exceed a limit. Your limits may be adjusted from time to time at our sole discretion. You may pay any payee approved by us in the continental United States, Alaska and Hawaii, and the following United States Territories: Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Payments to a person or business with an APO or FPO address may be made via paper check.
Bill Pay is intended for your use only. Trying to use Bill Pay to process payments on behalf of someone other than an owner is prohibited and will be grounds for termination of Bill Pay .
The date a Bill Pay payment states processing is referred to in this Agreement as the “Payment Sent Date.” Specific details about the Payment Sent Date will be provided on the Service webpage when you schedule a Bill Pay payment. We may, at our discretion, pay or refuse to fund Bill Pay payments if it would create an overdraft on the Eligible Account. We will make this decision regardless of whether we’ve previously established a pattern of honoring or dishonoring overdrafts.
Any negative balances on your Eligible Account will be governed by your agreements with us. If your Eligible Account closes or is restricted for any reason, AllSouth will cancel all pending payments associated with the account. It will be your sole responsibility to make all pending and future payments.
All fees that may be charged to your Eligible Account for Bill Pay services are located in our Fee Schedule on our website.
C. Scheduling Payments
When making payments through Bill Pay, make sure you allow enough time for your payee to receive your payment and credit your account properly. To avoid a charge imposed by your payee, you must schedule a payment sufficiently in advance of the payment due date. There will be a delay between the Payment Sent Date and the date the payee receives the payment, so you should schedule the payment in accordance with the payment rules displayed on the “Make a Payment” screen. Bill Pay payments sent by check will show the payer of the check as the “Name on Bill” you have provided for that payee record.
Payments must be scheduled before 10:00 p.m. ET to be processed on that day. We may withdrawal funds from your Eligible Account on the Business Day following your Payment Sent Date. The necessary funds must be available in your Eligible Account from which the bill payments will be debited on the Payment Sent Date. Your Available Balance may be reduced by the amount of your payment on the calendar day following your Payment Sent Date, if that day is not a Business Day.
You may choose to schedule payments to recur in the same amount at regular intervals.
The methods we use to make a payment may be electronic transmission, corporate check, or personal check. We reserve the right to select the method of payment.
If a paper check is sent and the check is not present for payment within ninety 90 days, AllSouth will place a stop payment on the check and credit the check amount back to your Eligible Account.
D. Payment Authorization and Payment Remittance
By providing AllSouth with the names, contact information, and/or account information of payees to whom you wish to direct payments, you authorize AllSouth and its third party service providers to debit your Eligible Account and remit funds on your behalf in accordance with your payment instructions. You also authorize the Bill Pay Service to credit your Eligible Account for payments returned to the Bill Pay Service by the United States Postal Service, a payee, or payments remitted to you on behalf of another authorized user of the Bill Pay Service. In order to process payments more efficiently or effectively, the Bill Pay Service may edit or alter payment data or data formats in accordance with payee directives.
When any payment or other online service generates an item to be charged to your Eligible Account, you agree that the Bill Pay Service may debit your account without requiring your signature on the item and without prior notice to you.
E. Stop/Change Payments
You have the right to stop or change any scheduled bill payment, but you must do so within the secure online session by 5:00 p.m. ET on the Payment Sent Date. As long as the “Cancel” button/link is still available within Bill Pay, a payment may be modified or cancelled by the user within the Bill Pay Service. If a check or payment has begun processing, a stop payment may be available by contacting AllSouth or through the stop payment feature within Online and Mobile Banking under the area titled “Accounts.”
Stop payment requests are not guaranteed. Although the Bill Pay Service will make every effort to accommodate your request, AllSouth will have no liability for failing to do so. Payees can present paper check payments to their bank before the stop payment has been processed, and once a paper check has been cashed by the payee it cannot be stopped. If the payment of a paper check is successfully stopped, it may take up to seven Business Days for the funds to be credited back to your Eligible Account. If you request a stop payment, we may also require you to present your request in writing within fourteen (14) days. The charge for each stop payment request will be the current charge for such service set forth in the Fee Schedule for your Eligible Account.
F. Insufficient Funds Fee
FOR ANY ITEM YOU AUTHORIZE A PAYMENT THROUGH THE SERVICE THAT IS RETURNED FOR INSUFFICIENT FUNDS IN YOUR ELIGIBLE ACCOUNT, YOU MAY BE SUBJECT TO A FEE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE OTHER AGREEMENTS. Your Membership Disclosure Booklet provides detailed information on how AllSouth charges Insufficient Funds Fees.
G. Errors and Liability
AllSouth will attempt to make all your payments properly. However, we shall incur no liability if we are unable to complete any payments initiated by you because of the existence of one or more of the following circumstances:
- Any other party that is meant to make a payment fails to properly transmit the payment to the intended payee.
- Your Eligible Account and/or overdraft privilege lack sufficient funds or credit to cover the Bill Pay payment.
- A legal order directs us to prohibit withdrawals from the Eligible Account.
- Any part of the electronic funds transfer system network is not working properly and you have been advised or know about the malfunction before you execute the transaction.
- You have not provided the Bill Pay Service with the correct payment information, or the correct payment instructions including the correct name, address, phone number, email address, or account information of the payee.
- Circumstances beyond AllSouth’s control prevent the proper execution of the transaction.
Provided none of the foregoing exceptions are applicable, your account was in good standing, and you have a Consumer Eligible Account, if the Bill Pay Service causes an incorrect amount of funds to be removed from your Eligible Account or causes funds in your Eligible Account to be directed to a payee which does not comply with your payment instructions, AllSouth will be responsible for returning the improperly transferred funds to your Eligible Account, and for directing to the proper payee any previously misdirected transactions, and, if applicable, for any late payment related charges, up to $50.00. Provided none of the foregoing exceptions are applicable, and you have a Eligible Account, AllSouth’s liability for the Bill Pay will be set forth in Section M below.
AllSouth will not be liable for indirect, special, or consequential damages from your use of Bill Pay. We do not recognize “grace periods”, “late after”, or “post marked by” dates when deciding whether to reimburse late fees or finance charges.
AllSouth assumes no responsibility for the accuracy or timeliness of information provided by, or retrieved from, other institutions or other parties to your transactions. You agree to provide us with prior written notice of any changes in your designated accounts with payees and other instructions that would affect our right or ability to process transfers or payments using the Services. If a transfer or payment instruction identifies a payee or financial institution by name or account or other identifying number, we and other financial institutions may process the transaction solely on the basis of the number, even if it identifies a person or entity that is different from the person or entity that is indicated on the instruction. We have no obligation to identify discrepancies between names and numbers.
H. Joint Accounts
Each owner of an Eligible Account may use Bill Pay and has the same rights of access to account activity, including, but not limited to: notifying us of suspected loss, fraud, or canceling Bill Pay, etc.
Each owner may enroll in Bill Pay individually. If they do, they will need a unique password and will have a separate payee list and payment history.
AllSouth may terminate your access to Bill Pay without prior notice if you:
- Have Bill Pay and do not schedule or process a payment through Bill Pay for a continuous ninety (90) day period.
- Use Bill Pay for unauthorized purposes.
- Establish more than 999 payees.
- Close your Eligible Account and do not designate a new Eligible Account to fund Bill Pay payments within thirty (30) days of closing the account.
If your use of Bill Pay is terminated, your online bill payment information will be lost and all pending payments will be canceled and are your sole responsibility.
If you decide to terminate Bill Pay, AllSouth strongly suggests you cancel all future bill payments at the same time you cancel Bill Pay, either by deleting those payments yourself using Bill Pay or by contacting us. Once we have been notified that you have canceled Bill Pay, AllSouth will automatically delete all outstanding payment orders.
J. Exception Payments
Tax payments and court ordered payments may be scheduled through the Bill Pay Service, however, such payments are discouraged and will be scheduled at your own risk. In no event shall AllSouth be liable for any claims or damages resulting from your scheduling of these types of payments. AllSouth has no obligation to research or resolve any claim resulting from an exception payment. All research and resolution of any misapplied, misposted, or misdirected payments will be solely your responsibility and not the responsibility of AllSouth.
K. Electronic Bills (eBills)
eBills are a feature of Bill Pay that allows you to receive bills electronically from participating payees. Through the use of eBills you will be able to:
- Approve eBills
- Access eBills from a third party
- Receive eBills in a timely manner
- Stop eBills
Payees are responsible for establishing their own criteria for receiving requests to receive an eBill and have the sole discretion to accept or decline your request. AllSouth cannot make this decision for the payee.
For some eBills, AllSouth will obtain the eBill directly from the payee’s website or online services. You will be required to provide information needed for this purpose including your username and password for the payee’s online services. By providing this information, you are authorizing AllSouth to access the payee’s website to retrieve account information on your behalf.
AllSouth has no liability or responsibility associated with a payee’s failure to provide the necessary data to forward an eBill in a timely manner. If you do not receive a bill, it is your responsibility to contact the payee directly to arrange a payment. AllSouth is not responsible for any late charges or other adverse consequences associated with a payee’s failure to provide the necessary data in a timely manner.
L. Additional Provisions for Eligible Business Accounts Only
The provisions of this Section, 9M, apply only to bill payments from Eligible Business Accounts. For payment requests from Eligible Business Accounts, which are subject to Article 4A of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC 4A), AllSouth is only liable for damages required to be paid under UCC 4A. AllSouth will never be liable for any exemplary, special, indirect, or consequential loss, damage, costs, or expenses of any nature, including, but not limited to: lost profits, even if we have been informed of the possibility of such damages, excepts as may be required by law.
AllSouth will have no liability to you for any unauthorized payment or transfer made using your user login credentials before you have notified us of possible unauthorized use and we have had a reasonable opportunity to act on that notice. We may suspend or cancel your login credentials without receiving such notice from you if we suspect that your login credentials are being used in an unauthorized or fraudulent manner. AllSouth will have no liability for such suspension or cancellation.
If we fail or delay in making a payment or transfer pursuant to your instructions, or if we make a payment or transfer in an erroneous amount that is less than the amount per your instructions, unless otherwise required by law, our liability shall be limited to interest on that amount that we failed to timely pay or transfer, calculated from the date on which the payment or transfer was to be made until the date it was actually made or you cancelled the instructions. We may pay such interest either to you or to the intended recipient of the payment or transfer, but in no event will we be liable to both parties, and our payment to either party will fully discharge any liability to the other. If we make a payment or transfer in an erroneous amount that exceeds the amount per your instructions, or if we permit an unauthorized payment or transfer after we have had a reasonable time to action a notice from you of possible unauthorized use as described above, unless otherwise required by law, our liability will be limited to a refund of the amount erroneously paid or transferred, plus interest thereon from the date of the payment or transfer to the date of the refund, but in no event to exceed sixty (60) days’ interest. If we become liable to you for interest compensation under this Section or applicable law, such interest will be calculated based on the average federal funds rate at the Federal Reserve Bank in the district where AllSouth is headquartered for each day interest is due, computed on the basis of a 360-day year.
AllSouth has no duty to monitor payments made though Bill Pay. If you are a Business, and an Authorized Signer assigned by you uses your Eligible Account to pay bills that are not yours, you assume the entire risk of the loss. You also agree to indemnify and hold us and our directors and employees harmless from all loss, liability, claims, demands, judgments, and expenses (including attorney fees) arising from such use.
N. Limitations and Dollar Amounts for Payments.
For certain Eligible Accounts, applicable federal regulations impose certain limits on pre-authorized, automatic, and telephone transfers (including online transfers) to six (6) transfers per statement cycle. Loan payments to AllSouth are not included in these limits. For security reasons, AllSouth may impose additional limits on the frequency, number, and dollar amounts of the transactions you can perform using the Service. In addition, AllSouth reserves the right to pay or refuse to pay a person or entity to which you may direct a payment through the Service. We will notify you if we decide to refuse to pay a person or entity designated by you; however, this notification is not required if you direct us to make a payment which is otherwise prohibited in your transactions with us.

Once the test transfer is complete we may ask you to access the non-AllSouth account and to tell us the amount of the test credit or debit or any additional information reported by your financial institution with this test transfer. We may also verify the non-AllSouth accounts by requiring you to submit proof of ownership of the non-AllSouth account(s).

D. Transfer Types and Limitations
We may add new features to the Transfer Service. You will be approved or declined for any such additional service at our sole discretion and additional terms and conditions may apply. We may at any time decline a funds transfer that we believe may violate law.
AllSouth does not limit the number of funds transfers you may make; however, you may not make funds transfers in excess of the number of funds transfers allowed by the rules and regulations governing the applicable accounts. For security and risk management reasons we may modify the limit, the frequency, and dollar amount of transfers you can make using AllSouth’s Transfer Service. The limits on the frequency and dollar amount of transfers are solely for the protection of AllSouth. AllSouth may vary these limitations in AllSouth’s sole discretion at any time and will provide notice for any decrease in transaction limits.
You may not make funds transfers in excess of the dollar limits for the Transfer Service. We reserve the right to change the dollar amount of funds transfers you are permitted to make using our Transfer Service. In the event that your use of the Transfer Service has been suspended and reinstated you understand and agree that your use of the Transfer Service thereafter may be subject to a lower dollar amount limitation than would otherwise be permitted by AllSouth.

- Any of your Eligible Accounts with us is not current or in good standing;

All funds transfers are subject to the rules and regulations governing the relevant accounts. You may not initiate any funds transfers from or to an account that are not allowed under the rules or regulations applicable to such account including rules or regulations designed to prevent the transfer of funds in violation of the Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) regulations.
Upon learning that the funds transfer could not be completed, we may, but are not required to, make a reasonable effort to complete the transfer again. If the funds transfer fails, we will notify you to contact your non-AllSouth financial institution to learn more about the failure.
AllSouth reserves the right to decline any funds transfer or to submit the funds transfer instruction or orders or to carry out change or cancellation requests.
You represent and warrant to that you have enough money in your non-AllSouth accounts to make any funds transfers you request that we make on your behalf through the Transfer Service. If we receive a transfer request against your Eligible Account and there are not enough funds available in your Eligible Account to cover the transfer, we may at our sole discretion:
- Cover the transfer in accordance with the terms of any written overdraft privilege plan that you and we have established.
- Cover the transfer and create an overdraft to your Eligible Account.
- Decline the transfer.
We may make the decision regardless of whether we may have previously established a pattern of honoring or dishonoring overdrafts. Fees may vary depending on the actions we take. Any negative balance on your Eligible Account is immediately due and payable, unless we agree otherwise, in writing, and you agree to reimburse us for the cost and expenses (including attorney fees and expenses) we incur in recovering the negative balance (including overdraft and associated fees).
Payments that are in process cannot be stopped or canceled. When the Transfer Service offers recurring and/or future one-time transfers, you may cancel any transfer as long as AllSouth receives the request before the process date of the one-time transfer or the next scheduled recurring transfer. For recurring transfers, you may cancel only the next scheduled transfer or the entire recurring transfer schedule. After the entire recurring transfer schedule is canceled, all future transfers will be canceled and you must reschedule it if you want transfers to be made in the future.
You agree that your transfer instructions are the authorization for us to complete the funds transfer. You authorize us to select any means to execute your funds transfer, such as ACH, wire transfer, or check. You will be bound by the rules and regulations that govern the applicable funds transfer system, such as ACH rules as published by the National Automated Clearing House Associations (NACHA).
We will make all reasonable efforts to process your transfer requests in a timely manner; however, we reserve the right to hold funds pending settlement or for such period of time as we deem necessary, in our sole discretion, to cover items which may be returned unpaid.
H. No Unlawful or Prohibited Use

You further warrant and represent that you will not use the Transfer Service in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair the Transfer Service or interfere with any other party’s use of the Transfer Service. You may not obtain or attempt to obtain any materials or information through any means not intentionally made available or provided through the Transfer Service. The warranties and representations will remain in full force and effect even if this Agreement is terminated for any reason.
I. Account Number Discrepancies
AllSouth assumes no responsibility for the accuracy or timeliness of information provided by, or retrieved from, other financial institutions or other parties to your transactions. You agree to provide us with prior written notice of any changes in your designated accounts with payees and other instructions that would affect our right or ability to process transfers or payments using the Services. If the instructions for a transfer under the Transfer Service identify a bank or beneficiary by name and account number, AllSouth or the relevant financial institution may execute those instructions by reference to the account number only, even if the account number does not correspond to the name. You agree that neither we nor the relevant financial institution will have responsibility to investigate discrepancies between name and account numbers.
J. Joint Account Holder for Consumer Accounts Only
By using the Transfer Services, you confirm that, if your Eligible Accounts are held jointly, your joint account holder has consented for you to use your Eligible Accounts for Transfer Services. Each joint account holder on Eligible Accounts at AllSouth has the right to access account activity and to view transfers scheduled to be debited from the Eligible Account.
Joint account owners may cancel but not edit any pending or scheduled transfer where funds are being transferred from your AllSouth checking account if the cancellation occurs before the transaction is sent for processing. AllSouth reserves the right to end your use of the Transfer Service if any joint account holder notifies us that:
- The joint account owner never consented to your use of the Transfer Service;
- The joint account can no longer be operated on your instruction alone; or
- The joint account owner is withdrawing consent for you to use the joint account for the Transfer Service.
K. Responsibility for Errors
We must rely on the information you provided, and you authorize us to act on any instruction, which has been or reasonably appears to have been sent by you, to submit funds transfer instructions on your behalf. Financial Institutions receiving the funds transfer instructions may rely on such information. We are not obligated to take any further steps to confirm or authenticate such instructions and will act on them without getting further confirmation. If you provide us with incorrect information or if there is any error in your instruction we will make all reasonable efforts to reverse or delete such instructions, but you accept full responsibility for losses resulting from any of your errors, duplication, ambiguities or fraud in the information that you provide. If any information you provide is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, without limiting other remedies, we may recover from you any costs or losses incurred as a direct or indirect result of the inaccurate or incomplete information.
We are not responsible for errors, delays and other problems caused by or resulting from the action or inaction of financial institutions holding the non-AllSouth account. Although we will try to assist you in resolving any such problems, you understand that any such errors, delays or other problems are the responsibility of the relevant financial institution. Any rights you may have against a financial institution for such errors, delays or other problems are subject to the terms of the agreements you have with said financial institution, including any time limits during which complaints must be made.

L. AllSouth’s Liability
If we do not provide a funds transfer instruction on time, if we cause an incorrect amount to be removed from an Eligible Account, or if we cause funds from an Eligible Account to be transferred to any account other than the Eligible Account specified in the applicable funds transfer instruction, AllSouth will be responsible for returning the improperly transferred funds and/or for directing any misdirected funds to the proper Eligible Account.
We are not liable for any costs, fees, losses or indirect, special or consequential damages of any kind incurred as a result of:
- Our debit and/or credit or inability to debit and/or credit the accounts in accordance with your funds transfer instructions; or
- Inaccuracy, incompleteness or misinformation contained in the information retrieved on the accounts; or
- Charges imposed by any non-AllSouth financial institution or by applicable law; or
- Funds transfer limitations set by the non-AllSouth financial institutions or applicable law; or
- Not enough money in your Eligible Account or non-AllSouth account to make the funds transfer; or
- Transfers exceeding the credit limit on any applicable overdraft line; or
- System failures at a non-AllSouth financial institution and we are unable to complete the transfer; or
- Circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood) prevent the transfer, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken; or
- The acts or omissions of any third party, including your non–AllSouth financial institution; or
- Any further limitations on liability as otherwise stated in the agreement(s) governing your Eligible Account with us.
There may be additional exceptions to our liability stated in this Agreement.
Except as otherwise required by law, we will, in no event, be liable for any losses and damages other than those arising from our gross negligence or willful misconduct or if we breach a representation or warranty from this Agreement.
The financial institution where your non-AllSouth account is maintained may contact us to verify the content and authority of funds transfer instructions and any changes to those instructions. In connection with the Transfer Service we may provide to that financial institution such information required to verify the instructions and the verification may constitute a valid security procedure under the rules governing your Eligible Account.
You permit us to authorize your non-AllSouth financial institution to accept funds and transfer instructions in accordance with any authorization procedures you and such financial institution have agreed upon, or that we, on your behalf, and such financial institution have agreed upon, without verifying the instructions under the established security procedures, regardless of whether you agreed to the security procedures or we agreed on your behalf. In addition, we may authorize such Financial Institutions to charge and debit your Eligible Accounts based solely on these communications.
You agree that the password security described in this Agreement and in Section 6. sets forth security procedures for funds transfers that are commercially reasonable. For transfer requests to and/or from Eligible Business Accounts, which are subject to Article 4A of the Uniform Commercial Code (“UCC 4A”), you agree that we are liable only for damages required to be paid under UCC 4A. In no event will we be liable for any special, indirect or consequential loss, damage, costs or expense of any nature, including, without limitation, lost profits, even if we have been informed of the possibility of such damages, except as may be required by law.

H. Online Privacy Notice
- In order to complete transactions;
- In connection with offering Zelle;
- In connection with the investigation of any claim related to your accounts or the funds you send or receive;
- To comply with government agency or court orders;
- In accordance with your written permission; or
You authorize any financial institution that partners with Zelle to use the email address and telephone number that is associated with you to process and route transfers to and from your Eligible Account. In particular, if you receive notice of a transfer via email address or text message at any telephone number, and authorize or accept completion of the transfer, then you are also authorizing all financial institutions that partners with Zelle and Zelle to associate that email address or telephone number with you and your Eligible Account.
You agree that we may provide information about you to any user you contact, communicate with, send funds to, or receive funds from, using Zelle, and any user’s financial institution, Zelle, or any other person engaged in the processing, facilitating, or delivering transfers to which you are a party. The information we provide may include your name, address, telephone number, and email address.
You agree that we may obtain such information as we deem reasonably necessary to ensure that you are not using Zelle in violation of law, including, but not limited to, laws and regulations designed to prevent “money laundering” or the transfer of funds to or from persons or organizations whose accounts are blocked under regulations of the Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) of the United States Treasury Department.
You understand that in order to complete funds transfers using Zelle, it may be necessary for us to communicate with other financial institutions and other participants in Zelle concerning the transfer transactions. You agree that we may use, copy, modify, update, display, and distribute to other persons any information or data you provide to us for the purpose of processing transfers or providing Zelle, and you give us a license to do so.
You authorize us and other financial institutions that partner with Zelle to use information you provide to us, and information concerning your transfers in order to initiate and complete transfers, and provide ancillary and supporting services to facilitate your transfer and use of Zelle. Your authorization includes, but is not limited to, providing such information to users to whom you send funds or from whom you receive funds using Zelle, user’s financial institution, and any intermediary or service that is in any way facilitating or processing the transfer.
I. Receiving Money; Money Transfers by Financial Institutions that Partner with Zelle; Requesting Money
Once a user initiates a transfer of money to your email address or mobile telephone number registered with Zelle, you have no ability to stop the transfer. By using Zelle, you agree and authorize us to initiate credit entries to your registered Eligible Account. Most transfers of money to you from other users will occur within minutes. There may be other circumstances when the payment may take longer. For example, in order to protect you, us, Zelle, and the other financial institutions that Zelle partners with, we may need or Zelle may need additional time to verify your identity or the identity of the person sending the money. We may also delay or block the transfer to prevent fraud or to meet our regulatory obligations. If we delay or block a payment that you have initiated through a request for money, we will notify you in accordance with your user preference (i.e., email, push notification).
If you are receiving a payment from a business or government agency, your payment will be delivered in accordance with both this Agreement and the procedures of the business or governmental agency that is sending you the payment.
You may request money from another user. You understand and acknowledge that users to whom you send payment requests may reject or ignore your request. Neither we nor Zelle guarantee that you will receive money from other users by sending a payment request. If a user ignores your request, we may decide or Zelle may decide, in our sole discretion, that we will not send a reminder or repeat request to that user.
By accepting this Agreement, you agree that you are not engaging in the business of debt collection by attempting to use Zelle to request money for the payment or collection of an overdue or delinquent debt; to request money that is owed to another person; or to collect any amounts that are owed pursuant to a court order.
You agree to receive money requests from other users, and to only send requests for legitimate and lawful purposes. Requests for money are solely between the sender and recipient and are not reviewed or verified by us or by Zelle. Neither we nor Zelle assume responsibility for the accuracy or legality of such requests and do not act as a debt collector on your behalf or on behalf of the sender of a request for money.
We reserve the right, but assume no obligation, to terminate your ability to send requests for money in general, or to specific recipients, if we deem such requests to be potentially unlawful, abusive, offensive, or unwelcome by the recipient.
J. Sending Money; Debits by Financial Institutions that Partner with Zelle
You may send money to another user at your initiation or in response to that user’s request for money. You understand that use of Zelle by you shall at all times be subject to (i) this Agreement; and (ii) your express authorization at the time of the transaction for us or another financial institution that Zelle partners with to initiate a debit entry to your registered Eligible Account. You understand that when you send the payment, you will have no ability to stop it.
In most cases, when you are sending money, the transfer will occur in minutes; however, there are circumstances when the payment may take longer. For example, in order to protect you, us, Zelle, and the other financial institutions that partner with Zelle, we may need additional time to verify your identity or the identity of the person receiving the money. If you are sending money to someone who has not registered as a user with either Zelle or a financial institution that partners with Zelle, the transfer may take up to two (2) days from the day the intended recipient responds to the payment notification by registering as a user. You understand and acknowledge that a person to whom you are sending money and who is not registered as a user may fail to register with Zelle, or otherwise ignore the payment notification and the transfer may not occur.
The money may also be delayed or the transfer may be blocked to prevent fraud or comply with regulatory requirements. If we delay or block a payment that you have initiated, we will notify you in accordance with your user preferences (i.e., email, push notifications).
We have no control over the actions of other users, other financial institutions that partner with Zelle, or other financial institutions that could delay or prevent your money from being delivered to the intended user.
We reserve the right, at any time at our sole discretion, to impose limits on the amount(s) and/or number of payments you may send, receive, or request over a certain period of time. If you attempt to send, receive, or request payment(s) in excess of these limits, such payment may be rejected. If you are permitted to send, receive, or request payment(s) in excess of these limits, such payments shall be subject to this Agreement and we are not obligated to accept similar payment(s) in the future.
All transfer transactions are subject to this Agreement and regulations governing your account. Transfer limits, if any, applicable to the holder of the accounts for the transfer of funds to your Eligible Account or receiving transfers to their accounts are governed by terms of that party’s transfer service.
L. Electronic Funds Transfer Provisions Applicability
Your use of Zelle is subject to the Electronic Funds Transfer Act provisions set forth in the Section entitled Electronic Funds Transfer Agreement and Disclosure in this Agreement.
You understand and agree that you are responsible for paying all fees associated with your use of Zelle. Applicable fees will be disclosed in the user interface for, or else within, Zelle. YOU FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT ANY APPLICABLE FEES WILL BE CHARGED REGARDLESS OF WHETHER A PAYMENT INSTRUCTION IS COMPLETED, UNLESS THE FAILURE TO COMPELTE THE INSTRUCTION IS SOLELY DUE TO OUR FAULT, EXCEPT FOR THOSE FEES THAT ARE SPECIFIC USE BASED, SUCH AS REQUEST MONEY, IF APPLICABLE. There may be a charge for additional transfers and other optional services. You agree to pay such charges and authorize us to deduct the calculated amount from your designated, registered Eligible Account for these amounts and any additional charges that may be incurred by you. Any financial fees associated with your standard registered Eligible Accounts will continue to apply. You are responsible for any and all telephone access fees and/or internet service fees that may be assessed by your telephone or internet service provider.
N. Payment Cancellation/Stop Payment Requests
Our ability to stop a transfer instruction or recover funds associated with an unauthorized transfer instruction will depend on the manner in which the transfer instruction was initiated, and whether the transfer instruction to another user’s account has begun processing. We may not be able to cancel transfer instructions as the transfer instructions may be processed immediately. Transfers that have been processed cannot be cancelled or stopped. You agree that you, and not we, will be responsible for resolving any payment dispute with any user to whom you send money through a transfer.
We may also require you to present your stop payment request or request to recover funds in writing within fourteen (14) days after contacting AllSouth. If we charge you to stop the payment or recover funds, then the charge for each stop payment or funds recovery request will be the current charge as set forth in our current Fee Schedule.
O. Failure or Rejection of Transfers; Refused Payments
We do not make any representation or warranty that any transfer can be completed or that it can be completed within a particular time period. Any estimates that we may provide concerning the completion date for the transfer is only an estimate and is not binding on us. You understand and agree that we may not be able to complete a transaction if (i) the receiving user does not enroll in Zelle; or (ii) the receiving user does not register with Zelle the email address or telephone number you have provided to us for the user.
If you do not have enough money in your funding Eligible Account to make a transfer, we may reject the transaction. We reserve the right to decline to initiate or complete a transfer for any reason. We reserve the right to refuse to pay any user. We will attempt to notify the sender if we decide to refuse to pay a user designated by the sender. Notification is not required if you attempt to make an impermissible payment under this Agreement.

- 13. Mobile Deposit Service
AllSouth’s Mobile Deposit Service (“Mobile Deposit Service”) is only available through the AllSouth Mobile Banking Application. The Mobile Deposit Service enables you to use the AllSouth Mobile Banking Application and certain hardware (such as a smartphone or other Mobile Device) approved by us to create electronic images of the front and back of certain eligible paper checks and to transmit those images and other information, including, without limitation, information captured from the magnetic ink character recognition (“MICR”) line, to us for review and processing in accordance with this Section. “Electronic Check” means the electronic image of, and electronic information derived from, a paper check. After we receive your transmission, we will review each Electronic Check. For each Electronic Check that we determine is eligible for processing as described below, we will:
- Create a substitute check that we will present directly or indirectly to the bank on which the original paper check to which the Electronic Check relates is drawn, or at or through which the paper check is payable (each, a “Paying Bank”);
- Include the Electronic Check in an electronic file for presentment directly or indirectly to the Paying Bank; or
- Present or post any Electronic Check for which we are the Paying Bank.
Your Mobile Device must capture the image of the front and back of each check to be deposited, including the MICR line on each check, and such other information as required by the Mobile Deposit Service or applicable law. Such other information includes, but is not limited to:
- Certain technical information such as your IP address,
- Device identifier, and
- May also include your longitude and latitude at the time the image is transferred to us.
In order to enroll in the Mobile Deposit Service, you must be designated as an Authorized Representative or owner of an Eligible Account that qualifies for Mobile Deposit Service (“Mobile Deposit Eligible Account”), and is approved by us. In order to qualify for the Mobile Deposit Service you must:
- Have a Regular Share Savings Account that is 61 days or older,
- Be a member in good standing with no history of inappropriate activity, charge-offs, or a negative balance,
- Be approved for and have an active Eligible Account; and
- Have no more than one, thirty (30) day late payment on a loan with AllSouth in a rolling 12 month period.
The items above are not an all-inclusive, and AllSouth reserves the right to change the qualifications for Mobile Deposit Service at their discretion and with no notice to you.
The Mobile Deposit Service is provided at no charge to you. However, other fees, such as for returned items and overdrafts, may apply as provided in the Fee Schedule for your Eligible Account.
We may, with at least 30 days prior notice, to the extent required by applicable law, charge a fee for use of the Mobile Deposit Service. If you continue to use Mobile Deposit Service after the fee becomes effective, you agree to pay the service fee that has been disclosed or otherwise made available to you, as may be amended from time to time.
Any applicable fees for Mobile Deposit Services may be changed by us, at our discretion, at any time upon at least 30 days prior notice to you, to the extent required by applicable law. If the Eligible Account utilizing the Mobile Deposit Service is closed, or if the Eligible Account does not have sufficient available funds to cover the fees, you authorize us to charge any such fees to any other deposit account you maintain with us.
D. Creating and Transmitting Electronic Checks
You may use the AllSouth Mobile Banking Application to scan or otherwise create an electronic image of eligible paper checks that you wish to deposit to your Eligible Account by means of the Mobile Deposit Service and to transmit your Electronic Checks to us.
In addition to the provisions of subsection I, below, the following items may not be deposited through the Mobile Deposit Service:
- International checks,
- U.S. savings bonds,
- U.S. postal money orders,
- Remotely created checks (whether in paper form or electronically created),
- “Substitute Checks” (as defined in Regulation CC or other applicable federal law or regulation) or “image replacement documents” that purport to be Substitute Checks,
- Checks containing alterations to any of the fields on the front of the check,
- Checks that have been previously deposited at another financial institution via physical item, image, or electronic funds transfer,
- Checks that are not payable in U.S. dollars,
- Non-negotiable instruments,
- Checks drawn against a line of credit (convenience checks or “electronically created items”), and
- Checks payable to “cash”.
Except as noted in the preceding sentence, only checks and cashier’s checks drawn on or payable at or through a U.S. bank, can be transmitted through the Mobile Deposit Service. Additionally, only items that are made payable to, and endorsed by, you may be transmitted through the Mobile Deposit Service.
E. Processing Electronic Checks
If you transmit your Electronic Check(s) to AllSouth before the cut-off time we separately disclose to you (the “Cut-Off Time”) on any Business Day, we shall review and process your Electronic Check(s) on that Business Day. If you transmit your Electronic Check(s) to us after the Cut-Off Time on any Business Day, we shall review and process your Electronic Check(s) on the next Business Day. Once you have submitted an image of a check, you will receive a deposit confirmation message noting that your deposit has been submitted for processing. Your Electronic Check(s) is received by us when the Mobile Deposit Service generates a confirmation message. Funds deposited using the Mobile Deposit Service will generally be made available within two (2) Business Days after the day of deposit. AllSouth may delay the availability of your funds at AllSouth’s discretion if AllSouth deems it appropriate in accordance with our policies and procedures. The Mobile Deposit Service is subject to our Funds Availability Policy given to you at account opening, which shall ultimately control all issues of funds availability.
YOU SHOULD MONITOR YOUR ACCOUNT’S “AVAILABLE BALANCE” TO DETERMINE WHEN THE CHECK HAS BEEN PROCESSED AND THE FUNDS ARE AVAILABLE IN YOUR ACCOUNT. IT MAY TAKE A NUMBER OF DAYS BEFORE THE FUNDS ARE AVAILABLE. YOU SHOULD CONFIRM THAT THE FUNDS ARE SHOWN IN YOUR AVAILABLE BALANCE BEFORE YOU PLAN TO ACCESS THE FUNDS. The Mobile Deposit Service will allow you to confirm that your check has been scanned and submitted to AllSouth. The Mobile Deposit Service will allow you to check the status of a submitted check and you will receive a notice in the Mobile Banking application if your deposit was rejected for any reason. You will also receive a notice at the email address you used to enroll in the Mobile Deposit Service.
F. Deposit Limits
AllSouth may establish limits on the dollar amount and/or number of items or deposits which may be submitted through the Mobile Deposit Service from time to time. If you attempt to initiate a deposit in excess of these limits, AllSouth can reject your deposit. If AllSouth permits you to make a deposit in excess of these limits, such deposits will still be subject to this Agreement, and AllSouth will not be obligated to allow such a deposit at other times. For security reasons, these limits may not be disclosed to you in advance. However, you will always be notified if a specific item may not be deposited at the time you attempt to scan and remotely deposit the item.
G. Check Exceptions
Each Business Day when we review and process your Electronic Check(s), we will use commercially reasonable efforts to review each Electronic Check and to reject any Electronic Check that we in our sole discretion determine to be ineligible for the Mobile Deposit Service (each, an “Exception”). “Exception” includes, without limitation, an Electronic Check that:
- Is illegible or contains MICR data that is not machine-readable,
- Was previously processed as an Electronic Check,
- Is drawn on financial institutions located outside the United States and is not payable at or through a financial institution located within the United States,
- Appears to be counterfeit or gives us reason to believe the check will cause a loss to us or you, or
- Does not contain a restrictive endorsement.
We will notify you of each Exception through communication channels at our discretion. If you wish to attempt to deposit any Exception to your Eligible Account, you shall do so only by depositing the original paper check on which the Exception is based or as otherwise agreed between us. Even if we do not initially identify an Electronic Check as an Exception when we review and process the Electronic Check to which the Exception relates, the Electronic Check or the substitute check or the alleged substitute check created by us from it may nevertheless be returned to us because, among other reasons, the Paying Bank determines that such item or check is illegible or missing an image. Our failure to identify an Exception shall not preclude or limit the obligation of you to us under Section 12(P). AllSouth may in AllSouth’s sole discretion, and without liability to you, refuse any check for any or no reason, or elect to take the check on a collection basis only. AllSouth reserves the right to charge back to your account, at any time, any item that AllSouth subsequently determines was an ineligible item or Exception. AllSouth is not liable for any loss, cost, or fees you may incur as a result of a chargeback of an ineligible item or Exception. You acknowledge and agree that while AllSouth normally provides notice of an Exception or a rejected deposit, AllSouth may reject any check transmitted through the Mobile Deposit Service in AllSouth’s sole discretion without notice to you, and AllSouth will not be liable for any such rejection or failure to notify you of such rejection. If AllSouth rejects a check for remote deposit, you must physically deposit the check.
H. Return of Checks
You are solely responsible for verifying that checks that you deposit using the Mobile Deposit Service have been received for deposit by AllSouth. AllSouth will provide you with notice of rejected deposit or notice of any deposits that AllSouth is unable to process because the checks were returned unpaid by the payor financial institution. You agree to accept such notices in accordance with your agreements with AllSouth, but AllSouth may choose any reasonable method for providing such notices to you. In the event that AllSouth credits your Eligible Account for a check that is subsequently dishonored and returned, you authorize AllSouth to debit the amount of such check plus any associated fees from the Eligible Account. To the extent that funds in your Eligible Account are insufficient to cover the returned item, AllSouth shall debit the deficiency from any of your other accounts with AllSouth at AllSouth’s sole discretion. AllSouth’s right to charge your accounts will apply without regard to whether the check was timely returned or whether there is any other claim or defense that the check was improperly returned. You understand and agree, that since you have either maintained the original check or destroyed the original check in compliance with this Agreement, the original check will not be returned. You further agree that any image that AllSouth charges may be in the form of an electronic or paper reproduction of the original check or a substitute check. You may not use the Mobile Deposit Service to deposit a Substitute Check and you may not deposit the original check through the Mobile Deposit Service or in any other manner if you receive a dishonored check. You agree to comply with any additional instructions AllSouth may provide you in connection with returned checks.

This regulation applies to transaction you can perform using your card to access your account, such as purchases and ATM transactions. Regulation E also applies to other types of other types of electronic funds transfers you can make from your account, such as payments made using Bill Pay and the direct deposit of your paycheck into your account. Regulation E sets forth the basic rights, liabilities and responsibilities of consumers who use electronic funds transfers and of the financial institution who offer those services. It includes the actions you need to take if you believe your card, your card number, or Personal Identification Number (PIN) has been lost or stolen, or if you notice an error or unauthorized electronic funds transfer on your account and the rules regarding your potential liability for these transfers.
B. EFT Services
Using AllSouth’s EFT Services, you may make transfers between your accounts including on accounts on which you are a joint owner. You may also make transfers from your account at AllSouth to accounts at other financial institutions.

C. Visa® Debit Card
You may use your debit card to purchase goods and services from participating merchants that accepts the Visa debit cards. You may also use your card to order goods and services by mail, electronically online, or telephone from places that accept this card.
If you wish to pay for goods or services over the Internet, you may be required to provide card number security information before you will be permitted to complete the transaction.
You agree that you will not use your debit card for any transaction that is illegal under applicable federal, state, or local law. Funds to cover your debit card purchases will be deducted from your checking account.
Please refer to the overdraft section regarding transactions made when funds are not available. If you initiate a transaction that overdraws your account, you agree to make immediate payment of any overdrafts together with any service charges AllSouth. In the event of repeated overdrafts, we may terminate all Services under this Agreement.
You may use your debit card and PIN (Personal Identification Number) at ATMs of AllSouth, and such other machines or facilities as we may designate. At the present time, you may also use your debit card to:
- Make POS (Point-of-Sale) transactions with your debit card and PIN (Personal Identification Number) to purchase goods or services at merchants that accept Visa.

D. Notice Regarding Non-Visa Pinless Debit Card Transactions
We allow non-Visa debit transaction processing. This means you may use your Visa debit card on a PIN-Debit Network* (a non-Visa Network) without using a PIN to authenticate your transactions.
Examples of the types of actions that you may be required to make to initiate a Visa transaction on your Visa debit card include signing a receipt, providing a debit card number over the phone or via the Internet, or swiping the debit card through a point-of-sale terminal.
Examples of the types of actions you may be required to make to initiate a transaction on a PIN-Debit Network include but are not limited to initiating a payment directly with the biller (possibly via telephone, Internet, or kiosk locations), responding to a logo displayed at a payment site and choosing to direct payment through that network, and having your identity verified using known information derived from an existing relationship with you instead of through the use of a PIN.
Please be advised that the terms and conditions of your agreement with us relating to Visa debit transactions do not apply to non-Visa debit transactions. For example, the additional limits on liability (sometimes referred to as Visa’s Zero Liability Policy) and the streamlined error resolution procedures offered on Visa debit card transactions are not applicable to transactions processed on a PIN-Debit Network.
*Visa rules generally define PIN-Debit Network as a non-Visa debit network that typically authenticates transactions by use of a personal identification number (PIN) but that is not generally known for having a card program.
E. Preauthorized Electronic Funds Transfers.

We may require written confirmation of the stop payment order to be made within fourteen (14) days of any verbal notification. If we do not receive the written confirmation, the verbal stop payment order shall cease to be binding fourteen (14) days after it was made.
- Notice of Varying Amounts. If these regular payments may vary in amount, the person you are going to pay is required to tell you, ten (10) days before each payment, when it will be made and how much it will be. You may choose instead to get this notice only when the payment would differ by more than a certain amount from the previous payment or when the amount would fall outside certain limits that you set.

J. Conditions of EFT Services
- Ownership of Cards. Any debit card or other device which we supply to you is our property, or to any person whom we authorize to act as our agent, or to any person who is authorized to honor the debit card, immediately according to instructions. The debit card may be repossessed at any time at our sole discretion without demand or notice. You cannot transfer your debit card or account to another person.
- Honoring the Card. Neither we nor merchants authorized to honor the debit card will be responsible for the failure or refusal to honor the debit card or any other device we supply to you. If a merchant agrees to give you a refund or adjustment, you agree to accept a credit to your account in lieu of a cash refund.
- Foreign Transactions. Purchases and cash withdrawals made in foreign currencies will be debited from your account in U.S. dollars. The exchange rate between the transaction currency and the billing currency used for processing international transactions is a rate selected by Visa from a range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which rate may vary from the rate Visa itself receives or the government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date. The exchange rate used on the processing date may differ from the rate that would have been used on the purchase date or cardholder statement posting date. A fee of 1% of the amount of the transaction, calculated in U.S. dollars, will be imposed on all foreign transactions, including purchases, cash withdrawals and credits to your account. A foreign transaction is any transaction that you complete or a merchant completes on your card outside of the U.S., Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands.
- Security Access Code. You may use one or more access codes with your electronic funds transfers. The access codes issued to you are for your security purposes. Any codes issued to you are confidential and should not be disclosed to third parties or recorded on or with the debit card. You are responsible for safekeeping your access codes. You agree not to disclose or otherwise make your access codes available to anyone not authorized to sign on your accounts. If you authorize anyone to use your access codes that authority shall continue until you specifically revoke such authority by notifying AllSouth. You understand that any joint owner you authorize to use an access code may withdraw or transfer funds from any of your accounts. If you fail to maintain the security of these access codes and we suffer a loss, we may terminate your EFT Services immediately.
- Joint Accounts. If any of your accounts accessed under this Agreement are joint accounts, all joint owners, including any authorized users, shall be bound by this Agreement and, alone and together, shall be responsible for all EFT transactions to or from any savings and checking or loan accounts as provided in this Agreement. Each joint account owner, without the consent of any other account owner, is authorized by every other joint account owner to, make any transaction permitted under this Agreement. Each joint account owner is authorized to act for the other account owners, AllSouth may accept orders and instructions regarding any EFT transaction on any account from any joint account owner.
K. Fees and Charges
There are certain fees and charges for electronic funds transfer services. For a current listing of all applicable fees, see our current Fee Schedule that was provided to you at the time you applied for or requested these electronic services. From time to time, the charges may be changed. We will notify you of any changes as required by applicable law.
If you use an ATM not operated by AllSouth, you may be charged a fee by the ATM operator and by any national, regional, or local network used in processing the transaction (and you may be charged a fee for a balance inquiry even if you do not complete a funds transfer). The ATM surcharge will be debited from your account if you elect to complete the transaction or continue with the balance inquiry.
L. Member Liability Applicable to Consumer Accounts (see Section M below for Business Accounts)
The following provisions apply to electronic funds transfers notify us immediately if you believe that your account information has been lost or stolen, if you believe your account has been improperly accessed, or if you believe that an electronic fund transfer has been made without your permission.
If the electronic fund transfer is from a Consumer Eligible Account, your liability for an unauthorized transaction will be determined as follows:
- If you notify us within two (2) Business Days after learning of the loss or theft of your Password or User ID, or any other means to access your account such as your debit card, ATM card, code, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your Password or User ID without your permission.
- If you do NOT notify us within two (2) Business Days after learning of the loss or theft of your Password or User ID, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your Password or User ID without your permission had you told us, you could lose as much as $500.
If your periodic statement shows transfers that you did not make, including those made by card, code or other means, notify us immediately. If you do not tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement was mailed or emailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the sixty (60) days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we may extend the time periods.

Disputes include any unresolved claims concerning any services relating to your Eligible Accounts, including, without limitation, disputes regarding any of the Services described herein.

American Arbitration Association

H. Administration of Arbitration.
The arbitration shall be decided by a single, neutral arbitrator. The arbitrator will be either a lawyer with at least ten years experience or a retired or former judge selected in accordance with the rules of the arbitration forum. The arbitrator shall follow procedures and rules of the arbitration forum in effect on the date the arbitration is filed unless those rules and procedures are inconsistent with this arbitration provision, in which case this arbitration provision will prevail. Those provisions and rules may limit the discovery available to You or Us. The arbitrator will take reasonable steps to protect customer account information and other confidential information if requested to do so by you or by us. The arbitrator shall decide the dispute in accordance with applicable substantive law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, will honor claims of privilege recognized at law, and will be empowered to award any damages or other relief provided for under applicable law. The arbitrator will not have the power to award relief to, or against, any person who is not a party to the arbitration. An award in arbitration shall determine the rights and obligations between the named parties only, and only in respect of the claims in arbitration, and shall not have any bearing on the rights and obligations of any other person, or on the resolution of any other dispute. Your or we may choose to have a hearing and be represented by counsel. The decision rendered by the arbitrator shall be in writing. At your or our request, the arbitrator shall issue a written, reasoned decision following applicable law and relief granted must be relief that could be granted by the court under applicable law. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction.

If there is a hearing, we will pay the fees and costs of the arbitration for the first day of that hearing. All other fees and costs will be allocated in accordance with the rules of the arbitration forum. However, we will advance or reimburse filing and other fees if the arbitrator rules that You cannot afford to pay them or finds other good cause for requiring Us to do so, or if you ask us in writing and we determine there is good reason for doing so. Each party shall bear the expense of their respective attorneys, experts, and witnesses and other expenses, regardless of who prevails, but a party may recover any or all costs and expenses from another party if the arbitrator, applying applicable law, so determines.
J. Right to Resort to Provisional Remedies Preserved.

K. Arbitration Award.
The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding unless a party appeals it in writing to the arbitration forum within fifteen days of notice of the award or pursuant to the rules of the arbitration forum, whichever is later. The appeal must request a new arbitration before a panel of three neutral arbitrators selected in accordance with the rules of the same arbitration forum. The panel will consider all factual and legal issues anew, follow the same rules that apply to a proceeding using a single arbitrator, and make decisions based on the vote of the majority. Costs will be allocated in the same manner as allocated before a single arbitrator. An award by a panel is final and binding on the parties after fifteen days of notice of the award or pursuant to the rules of the arbitration forum, whichever is later. A final and binding award is subject to judicial intervention or review only to the extent allowed under the Federal Arbitration Act or other applicable law. A party may seek to have a final and binding award entered as a judgment in any court having jurisdiction.
