ALMA BANK AGREEMENT, TERMS AND CONDITIONS, AND DISCLOSURE
The Service (as defined below) is separate and apart from any other charges that may be assessed by your wireless carrier for text messages sent to or received from Alma. You are responsible for any fees or other charges that your wireless carrier may charge for any related data or message services, including, without limitation, for short message service.
The Service is provided by Alma and not by any other third party. You and Alma are solely responsible for the content transmitted through the text messages sent to and from Alma. You must indicate the source of the message in any messages you send (e.g., mobile telephone number, "From" field in text message, etc.)
Alma endeavors to provide you with the highest quality Mobile Banking services available. By enrolling in the Service, you agree to all the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement and Disclosure (the "Agreement").
We may offer additional Mobile Banking services and features in the future. Any such added Mobile Banking services and features will be governed by this Agreement and by any terms and conditions provided to you at the time the new Mobile Banking service or feature is added and/or at the time of enrollment for the feature or service, if applicable. From time to time, we may amend these terms and modify or cancel the Mobile Banking services we offer without notice, except as may be required by Law.
Definitions. As used in this Agreement, the following terms have the meanings given below:
Account(s) means your eligible Alma checking, savings, loan, certificate of deposit and other Alma products that can be accessed through Mobile Banking.
Device means a supportable mobile device including a cellular phone or other mobile device that is web enabled and supports secure communications, and which is also capable of receiving text messages. Your wireless carrier may assess you fees for data or text messaging services. Please consult your wireless plan or provider for details.
Mobile Banking and "Service" means the banking services accessible from the Devices you have registered with us for Mobile Banking.
You and "Your(s)," means each person with authorized access to your Account(s) who enrolls to use Mobile Banking.
Description of Service. Mobile Banking is offered as a convenience and supplemental service to our Online Banking services. It is not intended to replace access to Online Banking from your personal computer or other methods you use for managing your accounts and services with us. Mobile Banking allows you to access your Alma account information, make payments to payees, make check deposits, transfer funds and conduct other banking transactions. To utilize the Mobile Banking Service, you must be enrolled to use Online Banking and then activate your Devices within the Online Banking system.
We reserve the right to limit the types and number of accounts eligible and to refuse to make any transaction you request through Mobile Banking. We also reserve the right to modify the scope of the Service at any time.
Mobile Banking may not be accessible or may have limited utility over some network carriers. In addition, the Service may not be supportable for all Devices. Alma cannot guarantee, and is not responsible for, the availability of data services provided by your mobile carrier, such as data outages or "out of range" issues.
Use of Service. In order to properly use Mobile Banking, you agree to accept responsibility for learning how to use Mobile Banking in accordance with the online instructions and that you will contact us directly if you have any problems with Mobile Banking. If we may modify the Service, you are responsible for understanding how to use Mobile Banking as modified. You also accept responsibility for knowing how to properly use your Device, and we will not be liable to you for any losses caused by your failure to properly use the Service or your Device.
Fees Charged by Alma. Currently, we charge no fees to enroll in or use Mobile Banking. However, we may assess fees: (a) set forth in the other agreements, disclosures or fee schedules for particular products or accounts (such as overdraft or fund transfer fees), or (b) for products and services you purchase through Mobile Banking. We reserve the right to institute or charge fees for Mobile Banking after sending you prior notice.
Other Agreements. You agree that when you use Mobile Banking, you remain subject to the terms and conditions of your existing agreements with any unaffiliated service providers, including, but not limited to, your mobile service provider, and that this Agreement does not amend or supersede any of those agreements. You understand that those agreements may provide for fees, limitations and restrictions which might impact your use of Mobile Banking (such as data usage or text messaging charges imposed on you by your mobile service provider for your use of or interaction with Mobile Banking), and you agree to be solely responsible for all such fees, limitations and restrictions. You agree that only your mobile service provider is responsible for its products and services. Accordingly, you agree to resolve any problems with your provider directly without involving us. Any account or other banking product accessed through this Service is also subject to the Account Agreements and Disclosures provided at the time of Account opening or otherwise. You should review the Account disclosures carefully, as they may include transaction limitations and fees which might apply to your use of Mobile Banking.
Mobile Banking Transfers. You may use the Service to transfer funds between your eligible Alma accounts ("Internal Transfer"). All Internal Transfer requests received by 8:00 PM Eastern Time ("ET") on a business day are processed on the same day. Internal Transfer requests received after 8:00 PM ET on a business day or any time on Saturdays, Sundays or holidays on which the Bank choses to remain closed, are processed on the next business day.
We may limit the type, frequency and amount of Internal Transfers for security purposes and may change or impose the limits without notice, at our option. You agree to confirm the completion of each Internal Transfer in your account balance and transaction history before withdrawing transferred funds.
Check Deposits. You may use the Service to deposit checks through your mobile Device. All check deposits made and received by 5:00 PM ET on a business day are processed on the same day, subject to limits and deposit item eligibility stated below. All check deposits made after 5:00 PM ET or not on a business day will be processed on the next business day.

You can access the current maximum mobile check deposit limits at https://www.almabank.com/Terms-of-Use/Mobile-Banking-Deposit-Limits
Eligible Deposit items. You agree to scan and deposit only checks as that term is defined in Federal Reserve Regulation CC ("Reg CC"). You agree that the image of the check transmitted to Alma shall be deemed an "item" within the meaning of Articles 3 and 4 of the Uniform Commercial Code. You agree that you will NOT use the Service to scan and deposit any checks or other items as shown below:
A. Checks or items payable to any person or entity other than you.
B. Checks or items containing obvious alteration to any of the fields on the front of the check or item, or which you know or suspect, or should know or suspect, are fraudulent or otherwise not authorized by the owner of the account on which the check or item is drawn.

D. Checks or items drawn on a financial institution located outside the United States or not payable in United States' currency.

You agree that any loss, cost or expense that Alma or you incur from your deposit of an ineligible item (as set forth above) will be your responsibility. Alma has no responsibility or liability for any fees incurred due to the rejection of an ineligible item and may additionally charge you fees (e.g., for insufficient funds) arising out of the deposit of ineligible items.
Image Quality. The image of an item transmitted to Alma using the Service must be legible. The image quality of the items must comply with the requirements established from time to time by ANSI, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Board, or any other regulatory agency, clearing house or association.
Endorsements and Procedures. You agree that all checks submitted through this Service must be properly endorsed by you prior to transmittal. Unless otherwise instructed by Alma, you agree that all checks deposited through this Service must (a) be endorsed by all required payees, and (b) state that they are "For Mobile deposit only at Alma Bank account #_________" or as otherwise instructed by Alma. In addition to the previously mentioned endorsement, if the check(s) has a "CHECK HERE IF MOBILE OR REMOTE DEPOSIT" box, you will check such checkbox. You agree to follow any and all other procedures and instructions for use of the Service as Alma may establish from time to time. Any loss that Alma incurs from a delay or processing error resulting from an irregular or missing endorsement or other markings by you will be your responsibility. Alma has no responsibility or liability for any fees incurred due to the rejection of transmitted items for missing or incomplete endorsements and may additionally charge you fees (e.g., for insufficient funds) arising out of the deposit of ineligible items.
Receipt of Items. We reserve the right to reject any item transmitted through the Service, at our discretion, without liability to you. We are not responsible for items we do not receive or for images that are dropped during transmission. An image of an item shall be deemed received when you receive a confirmation from Alma that we have received the image. Receipt of such confirmation does not mean that the transmission was error free or complete.
Availability of Funds. You agree that items transmitted using the Service will be available according to Alma's funds availability disclosure. Alma may make such funds available sooner based on such factors as creditworthiness, the length and extent of your relationship with us, transaction and experience information, and such other factors as Alma, in its sole discretion, deems relevant.
Disposal of Transmitted Items. Upon your receipt of a confirmation from Alma that we have received the image of an item, you agree to prominently mark the item as "VOID", "Electronically Presented" or check "CHECK HERE AFTER MOBILE OR REMOTE DEPOSIT" if applicable and to properly dispose of the item following a 60-day retention period to ensure that it is not re-presented for payment. You additionally agree never to re-present the item. You will promptly provide any retained item, or a sufficient copy of the front and back of the item, to Alma as requested to aid in the clearing and collection process, to resolve claims by third parties with respect to any item, or for Alma's audit purposes.
Errors in Transmission. By using the Service, you accept the risk that an item may be intercepted or misdirected during transmission. Alma bears no liability to you or others for any such intercepted or misdirected items or information disclosed through such errors.
Errors. You agree to notify Alma of any suspected errors regarding items deposited through the Service immediately, and in no event later than 60 days after the applicable Alma account statement is sent. Unless you notify Alma within 60 days, such statement regarding all deposits made through the Service shall be deemed correct, and you are prohibited from bringing a claim against Alma for such alleged error.

6. Enrolling for the Service
a. You must provide us with an email address that you regularly use and intend to use regularly (i.e., no disposable email addresses) and a permanent U.S. mobile phone number that you intend to use for an extended period of time (i.e., no "burner" numbers). You may not enroll in the Service with a landline phone number, Google Voice number, or Voice over Internet Protocol.
b. Once enrolled, you may:
i. authorize a debit of your account to send money to another User either at your initiation or at the request of that User; and
ii. receive money from another User either at that User's initiation or at your request, subject to the conditions of the Section below titled "Requesting Money."
c. If at any time while you are enrolled, you do not send or receive money using the Service for a period of 18 consecutive months, we may contact you and/or take other steps to confirm that the U.S. mobile phone number or email address that you enrolled still belongs to you. If we are unable to confirm that you are the owner of the mobile phone number or email address, then you understand that we may cancel your enrollment and you will not be able to send or receive money with the Service until you enroll again.
d. Once enrolled, a Z logo will appear on your profile picture for each U.S. mobile number and/or email address that you have enrolled with Zelle. The Z logo will be displayed to other Users to aid them in determining which of your U.S mobile numbers or email addresses should be used to send money with Zelle. If a User sends you money using a different U.S. mobile number or email address that they may have for you (one that is not already enrolled), you will receive a message with instructions on how to enroll with Zelle.
7. Consent to Emails and Automated Text Messages
a. You are responsible for any fees or other charges that your wireless carrier may charge for any related data, text or other message services, including without limitation for short message service. Please check your mobile service agreement for details or applicable fees.
b. You will immediately notify us if any email address or mobile phone number you have enrolled is (i) surrendered by you, or (ii) changed by you.
c. In the case of any messages that you may send through either us or Zelle or that we may send or Zelle may send on your behalf to an email address or mobile phone number, you represent that you have obtained the consent of the recipient of such emails or automated text messages to send such emails or text messages to the recipient.

8. Receiving Money; Money Transfers by Network Banks
Once a User initiates a transfer of money to your email address, mobile phone number, or Zelle tag enrolled with the Service, you have no ability to stop the transfer. By using the Service, you agree and authorize us to initiate credit entries to the bank account you have enrolled.
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 Network Banks, 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 preferences (i.e. email, push notification).
9. Sending Money; Debits by Network Banks
In most cases, when you are sending money to another User, 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 Network Banks, 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 enrolled as a User with Zelle, either in the Zelle mobile app or with a Network Bank, they will receive a text or email notification instructing them on how to enroll to receive the money. You understand and acknowledge that a person to whom you are sending money and who is not enrolling as a User may fail to enroll 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 notification).
We have no control over the actions of other Users, other Network Banks or other financial institutions that could delay or prevent your money from being delivered to the intended User.
Neither we nor Zelle shall have liability to you for any transfers of money, including without limitation, (i) any failure, through no fault of us or Zelle to complete a transaction in the correct amount, or (ii) any related losses or damages. Neither we nor Zelle shall be liable for any typos or keystroke errors that you may make when using the Service.
THE SERVICE IS INTENDED FOR SENDING MONEY TO FAMILY, FRIENDS AND OTHERS WHOM YOU TRUST. YOU SHOULD NOT USE ZELLE TO SEND MONEY TO PERSONS WITH WHOM YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR OR YOU DO NOT TRUST. ZELLE DOES NOT OFFER A PROTECTTION PROGRAM FOR AUTHORIZED PAYMENTS MADE THROUGH THE SERVICE (FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE THE GOODS OR SERVICES THAT YOU PAID FOR, OR THE GOODS OR SERVICES THAT YOU RECEIVED ARE DAMAGED OR ARE OTHERWISE NOT WHAT YOU EXPECTED).

11. Send Limits
We reserve the right to impose limits on the transactions that you transmit using Zelle and to modify such limits from time to time. You can access the Zelle limits at https://www.almabank.com/Terms-of-Use/Zelle-Limits.
12. Requesting Money
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, or that you will receive the amount that you request. Neither we nor Zelle accept responsibility if the other User rejects or ignores your request, or sends you an amount that is less than you 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.
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.
13. Transaction Errors
You agree to notify Alma of any suspected transactional errors. Errors should be reported immediately and in no event later than 60 days after the applicable Alma account statement is sent. Unless you notify Alma within such 60 day period, such statement regarding all Zelle transactions shall be deemed correct, and you are prohibited from bringing a claim against Alma for such alleged error.
If you believe an unauthorized transaction was made in connection with the Zelle service, contact us immediately at (855) 541-1000. You may also contact us using the phone number or address designated on the front of your statement or visit your local branch.
