The aforesaid amounts will be charged in addition to any non-sufficient funds (“NSF”) charges that may be assessed by us, as set forth in your fee schedule from us or your account agreement with us.

You may use your User ID and Password to obtain Online Services to perform the following functions:
- Transfer funds between your accounts
- Send money to another account of yours at another financial institution
- Pay bills directly from your deposit accounts in the amounts and on the days you request
- Send Person-to-Person payments.
- Deposit checks to your deposit accounts from a mobile device.
Account balances received through Online Services may not reflect recent transactions and the full balance indicated may not be available for withdrawal. In order to determine whether you have a sufficient available balance in an account to perform a transaction, you should review your account records.
The following transaction limitations apply to Online Services:
Transactions may not be processed if you do not have sufficient available funds in the account(s).
For security reasons, we limit the number and/or amount of transactions you may make using Online Services, including Person-to-Person payments and we may implement limits on amounts that may be transferred to individual third parties over a specific period of time.
In addition, certain accounts have transaction limitations, which are applicable to transfers and payments made via Online Services. These limitations apply to: (1) transfers and payments from accounts to other accounts; (2) recurring and automatic transfers and payments from accounts to third parties; and (3) payments from accounts by check, draft or similar order (including debit card) payable to, cashed or received by anyone other than you or us (“Third Party Checks”). These three types of transactions are called Limited Transfers. No more than six (6) Limited Transfers may be made from a savings account in any calendar month.
We reserve the right not to pay any Limited Transfer which exceeds the transaction limitations described above. If transaction limitations on an account are repeatedly violated, we also reserve the right to close the account, or convert the account to another account type that does not have these restrictions, and we may impose minimum balance requirements and monthly service charges as set forth in the most current Account Information Schedule for the account. Alternatively, we may remove the transfer and draft capabilities from the account. If the account is converted, the terms and conditions applicable to the new account shall govern the account and you shall thereafter pay the fees imposed on the new account. You agree to be bound by these limitations whenever you use our Online Services.
4. CHARGES FOR TRANSACTION
Service Charges. There is currently no fee charged by us for your use of our Online Services. Charges for account services are described in the most current Account Information Schedule for each account.
We reserve the right to charge for any or all services upon giving the notice required by law. When new fees are instituted, or existing fees increased, we will notify you by mail at least thirty (30) days prior to those changes being effective.
We will disclose information to third parties about your account or the transactions you make and you authorize those third parties to disclose similar information to us:
- Where it is necessary for completing transactions.
- In order to verify the existence and condition of your account for certain types of third parties, such as a credit bureau, merchant or financial institution.
- In order to comply with government agency or court orders or where it is otherwise required by federal, state or local law or regulation to do so.
- In the investigation or prosecution of alleged fraudulent activity concerning your account.
- If you give us your written permission.
6. RIGHT TO RECEIVE DOCUMENTATION OF TRANSACTIONS
You will get a monthly statement unless there were no electronic funds transfers in a particular month. In any case, you will get a statement at least quarterly on any account to or from which electronic funds transfers can be made.
7. RIGHT TO STOP PREAUTHORIZED TRANSFERS AND PROCEDURES FOR DOING SO
If you have told us in advance to make regular payments out of your account, you can stop any of these payments. Here’s how: Call us at 1-800-242-2265, or write us at Account Services, Dollar Bank, P.O. Box 765 Pittsburgh, PA 15230.
Be sure that we receive your stop payment request three (3) Business Days or more before the payment is scheduled to be made. If you call, we will require you to put your request in writing and get it to us within fourteen (14) days after your call. A Stop Payment Fee may be charged to your account for each stop payment order we receive.
8. NOTICE OF VARYING AMOUNTS
If these regular payments may vary in amount, the person you are going to pay will 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 payment would fall outside certain limits that you set.
9. LIABILITY FOR FAILURE TO STOP PAYMENT OF PREAUTHORIZED TRANSFERS
If you order us to stop one of these payments three (3) Business days or more before the transfer is scheduled, and we do not do so, we will be liable for your losses or damages.
10. BANK’S LIABILITY
If we do not complete a transfer to or from your account on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable, for instance:
- If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer.
- If the transfer would go over the credit limit on your overdraft line.
- If Online Services were not working properly and you knew about the breakdown when you started the transfer. If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood) prevent the transfer, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken.
- If any third party through whom bill payment is transmitted fails to properly transmit the payment to the intended payee.
- If you instruct us to make a bill payment that is too late.
- There may be other exceptions stated in our agreement with you.
11. IN CASE OF ERRORS OR QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR ONLINE SERVICES TRANSERS

Box 765 Pittsburgh, PA 15230. If you think your statement is incorrect or you need more information about an Online Services transaction listed on the statement, we must hear from you no later than sixty (60) days after the FIRST statement was sent to you on which the error appears. You must:
- Tell us your name and account number;
- Describe the error or the transaction in question, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information; and
- Tell us the dollar amount and date of the suspected error.
It will be helpful to us if you also give us a telephone number at which you can be reached in case we need any additional information.
If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint in writing within ten (10) Business Days after you have notified us. We will determine whether an error occurred within ten (10) Business Days after we hear from you (twenty (20) Business Days for electronic funds transfers on new accounts) and will correct any error promptly. However, if we need more time to confirm the nature of your complaint or question, we reserve the right to take up to forty-five (45) days to investigate your complaint or question following the date you notified us (ninety (90) days for transactions initiated outside the United States, and electronic funds transfers transactions on new accounts). If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within ten (10) Business Days (twenty (20) Business Days for electronic funds transfers on new accounts) for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within ten (10) Business Days, we may not credit your account.
We will provide you the results within three (3) Business Days after completing our investigation. If we determine that there was no error we will mail you a written explanation. You may ask for copies of documents used in our investigation. We may revoke any credit provided to you if we find an error did not occur.

1. Description of Service, Authorization and Processing.
a. For purposes of this Part, the term “Transfer Money Terms” means these Account to Account Transfers Additional Terms. The Account to Account transfer service (for purposes of these Transfer Money Terms, the "Service," which shall be considered an “Online Service” for purposes of the General Terms) enables you to transfer funds between your Account(s) that you maintain with us on the one hand, and your Account(s) that are maintained by other financial institutions, on the other hand. For purposes of these Transfer Money Terms, the Online or Mobile Banking platform for this Service shall be referred to as the “Site.” You represent and warrant that you are either the sole owner or a joint owner of the Eligible Transaction Account and the External Account and that you have all necessary legal right, power and authority to transfer funds between the Eligible Transaction Account and the External Account. If you are a joint owner of the Eligible Transaction Account, External Account, or both, then you represent and warrant that (i) you have been authorized by all of the other joint owners to operate such Accounts without their consent (including without limitation to withdraw or deposit any amount of funds to such Accounts or to even withdraw all funds from such Accounts); and (ii) we may act on your instructions regarding such Accounts without liability to such other joint owners. Further, you represent and warrant that the External Account is located in the United States.
b. When we receive a Transfer Instruction from you, you authorize us to (i) debit your Eligible Transaction Account and remit funds on your behalf to the External Account designated by you and to debit your applicable Account as described below in Section 5 of the Transfer Money Terms (Service Fees and Additional Charges); or, as applicable, to (ii) credit your Eligible Transaction Account and remit funds on your behalf from the External Account designated by you and to debit your applicable Account as described below in Section 5 of the Transfer Money Terms (Service Fees and Additional Charges). You also authorize us to reverse a transfer from the applicable Account if the debit is returned from the other Account in the transaction for any reason, including but not limited to nonsufficient funds.
c. We will use reasonable efforts to make all your transfers properly. However, we shall incur no liability if we are unable to complete any transfers initiated by you because of the existence of any one or more of the following circumstances:
1. If, through no fault of ours, the Eligible Transaction Account or External Account does not contain sufficient funds to complete the transfer or the transfer would exceed the credit limit of your overdraft account;
2. The Service is not working properly and you know or have been advised by us about the malfunction before you execute the transaction;
3. The transfer is refused as described in Section 6 of the Transfer Money Terms below;
4. You have not provided us with the correct information, including but not limited to the correct Eligible Transaction Account or External Account information; and/or,
5. Circumstances beyond our control (such as, but not limited to, fire, flood, network or system down time, issues with the financial institution(s), or interference from an outside force) prevent the proper execution of the transfer and we have taken reasonable precautions to avoid those circumstances.
d. It is your responsibility to ensure the accuracy of any information that you enter into the Service, and for informing us as soon as possible if you become aware that this information is inaccurate. You may not use a P.O. Box as a postal address. We will make a reasonable effort to stop or recover a transfer made to the wrong Account once informed, but we do not guarantee such recovery and will bear no responsibility or liability for damages resulting from incorrect information entered by you.
2. Transfer Methods and Amounts. Section 15 of the General Terms (Payment Methods and Amounts) applies to the Service, even in circumstances where the External Account is closed and we are attempting to return funds to such Account.
3. Transfer Cancellation Requests and Refused Transfers. You may cancel a transfer at any time until it begins processing (as shown in the Service). We will, to the extent permitted by law, make reasonable attempts to return any unclaimed, refused, refunded, prohibited, or denied transfer to your Account that we debited for the funds transfer. If this is unsuccessful (for example, the Eligible Transaction Account has been closed) we will make reasonable attempts to otherwise return the funds to you.
4. Stop Payment Requests. If you desire to stop any transfer that has already been processed, you must contact customer care for the Service pursuant to Section 6 of the General Terms. Although we will make a reasonable effort to accommodate your request, we will have no liability for failing to do so. We may also require you to present your request in writing within fourteen (14) days. The charge for each request will be the current charge for such service as set out in the applicable fee schedule.
5. Service Fees and Additional Charges. You are responsible for paying all fees associated with your use of the Service. Applicable fees will be disclosed in the user interface for, or elsewhere within, the Service or Site. Any applicable fees will be charged regardless of whether the Service was used, except for fees that are specifically use-based. Use-based fees for the Service will be charged against the Account that is debited for the funds transfer. There may also be charges for additional transactions and other optional services. You agree to pay such charges and authorize us to deduct the calculated amount from the applicable Eligible Transaction Account you hold with us or the Account that is debited for the funds transfer, depending on how such charges are described in the user interface for the Service. Any financial fees associated with your standard deposit accounts will continue to apply. You are responsible for any and all telephone access fees and internet service fees that may be assessed by your telephone and internet service provider. Section 18 of the General Terms (Failed Or Returned Payment Instructions) applies if you do not pay our fees and charges for the Service, including without limitation if we debit the External Account for such fees, as described in this Section, and there are insufficient fees in the External Account; Section 18 of the General Terms should be interpreted as applying to the External Account, not just the Eligible Transaction Account, in such circumstances.
6. Refused Transfers. We reserve the right to refuse any transfer. As required by applicable law, we will notify you promptly if we decide to refuse to transfer funds.
7. Returned Transfers. In using the Service, you understand transfers may be returned for various reasons such as, but not limited to, the External Account number is not valid.

Additional definitions for these Bill Payment Terms are set forth in Section 14 below. You represent and warrant that you are either the sole owner or a joint owner of the Eligible Transaction Account. If you are a joint owner of the Eligible Transaction Account, then you represent and warrant that (i) you have been authorized by all of the other joint owners to operate such Accounts without their consent (including without limitation to receive, review and pay bills with funds from such Accounts); and (ii) we may act on your instructions regarding such Accounts without liability to such other joint owners.
- Payment Scheduling. Transactions begin processing on your Scheduled Payment Date and will arrive approximately four (4) Business Days after the Scheduled Payment Date. When scheduling payments you must select a Scheduled Payment Date that is no later than five (5) Business Days before the actual Due Date reflected on your Biller statement unless the Due Date falls on a non-Business Day. If the actual Due Date falls on a non-Business Day, you must select a Scheduled Payment Date that is at least one (1) Business Day before the actual Due Date. Scheduled Payment Dates must be prior to any late date or grace period.
- The Service Guarantee. Due to circumstances beyond the control of the Service, particularly delays in handling and posting payments by Billers or financial institutions, some transactions may take longer to be credited to your account. The Service will bear responsibility for any late payment related charges should a payment post after its Due Date as long as the payment was scheduled in accordance with the Section 2 of the Bill Payment Terms (Payment Scheduling). This Service Guarantee does not apply if the late payment related charges were caused by an action or omission by the Biller such as a processing error or a change in payment processing or other events beyond our reasonable control.
- Payment Authorization and Payment Remittance. By providing the Service with names and account information of Billers to whom you wish to direct payments, you authorize the Service to follow the Payment Instructions that it receives through the Site. In order to process payments more efficiently and effectively, the Service may edit or alter payment data or data formats in accordance with Biller directives.
When the Service receives a Payment Instruction, you authorize the Service to debit your Eligible Transaction Account and remit funds on your behalf so that the funds arrive as close as reasonably possible to the Scheduled Payment Date designated by you. You also authorize the Service to credit your Eligible Transaction Account for payments returned to the Service by the United States Postal Service or Biller, or payments remitted to you on behalf of another authorized user of the Service.
The Service will attempt to make all your payments properly. However, the Service shall incur no liability and any Service Guarantee (as described in Section 3 of the Bill Payment Terms) shall be void if the Service is unable to complete any payments initiated by you because of the existence of any one or more of the following circumstances:
a. If, through no fault of the Service, your Eligible Transaction Account does not contain a sufficient available balance to complete the transaction or the transaction would exceed the credit limit of your overdraft account;
b. The payment processing center is not working properly and you know or have been advised by the Service about the malfunction before you execute the transaction;
c. You have not provided the Service with the correct Eligible Transaction Account information, or the correct name, address, phone number, or account information for the Biller; and/or,
d. Circumstances beyond control of the Service (such as, but not limited to, fire, flood, or interference from an outside force) prevent the proper execution of the transaction and the Service has taken reasonable precautions to avoid those circumstances. Provided none of the foregoing exceptions are applicable, if the Service causes an incorrect amount of funds to be removed from your Eligible Transaction Account or causes funds from your Eligible Transaction Account to be directed to a Biller which does not comply with your Payment Instructions, the Service shall be responsible for returning the improperly transferred funds to your Eligible Transaction Account, and for directing to the proper Biller any previously misdirected transactions, and, if applicable, for any late payment related charges.
5. Payment Cancellation Requests. You may cancel or edit any Scheduled Payment (including recurring payments) by following the directions within the portion of the Site through which the Service is offered. There is no charge for canceling or editing a Scheduled Payment. Once the Service has begun processing a payment it cannot be cancelled or edited, therefore a stop payment request must be submitted.
6. Stop Payment Requests. The Service's ability to process a stop payment request will depend on the payment method and whether or not a check has cleared. The Service may also not have a reasonable opportunity to act on any stop payment request after a payment has been processed. If you desire to stop any payment that has already been processed, you must contact customer care for the Service in the manner set forth in Section 6 of the General Terms above. Although the Service will attempt to accommodate your request, the Service will have no liability for failing to do so. The Service 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 as set out in the applicable fee schedule.
7. Exception Payments Requests. Exception Payments may be scheduled through the Service, however Exception Payments are discouraged and must be scheduled at your own risk. Except as required by applicable law, in no event shall the Service be liable for any claims or damages resulting from your scheduling of Exception Payments. The Service Guarantee (as described in Section 3 of the Bill Payment Terms) does not apply to Exception Payments.
8. Bill Delivery and Presentment. The Service includes a feature that electronically presents you with electronic bills from select Billers. Electronic bills may not be available from all of your Billers. Electronic bills are provided as a convenience only, and you remain solely responsible for contacting your Billers directly if you do not receive their statements. In addition, if you elect to activate one of the Service's electronic bill options, you also agree to the following:
a. Presentation of electronic bills. You will receive electronic bills from a Biller only if both: (a) you have designated it in the Service as one of your Billers, and (b) the Biller has arranged with our Service Provider to deliver electronic bills. The Service may then present you with electronic bills from that Biller if either: (1) you affirmatively elect online within the Service to receive electronic bills from the Biller, or (2) the Biller chooses to send you electronic bills on a temporary “trial basis.” In either case, you can elect online within the Service to stop receiving electronic bills from a Biller. Electing to receive electronic bills, automatically receiving trial electronic bills, and declining further elected or trial electronic bills all occur on an individual Biller basis. The Service does not include an option to prevent ever participating in the automatic trial electronic bill feature. When affirmatively electing to receive electronic bills from a particular Biller, you may be presented with terms from that Biller for your acceptance. We are not a party to such terms.
b. Paper Copies of electronic bills. If you start receiving electronic bills from a Biller, the Biller may stop sending you paper or other statements.

c. Sharing Information with Billers. You authorize us to share identifying personal information about you (such as name, address, telephone number, Biller account number) with companies that you have identified as your Billers and which we have identified as offering electronic bills for purposes of matching your identity on the Service’s records and the Biller’s records to (a) activate your affirmative request for electronic bills, and/or (b) confirm your eligibility for “trial basis” electronic bills.
d. Information held by the Biller. We are unable to update or change your personal information such as, but not limited to, name, address, phone numbers and email addresses, that is held by the Biller. Any changes will require you to contact the Biller directly. Additionally, it is your responsibility to maintain all usernames and passwords for all electronic Biller sites. You also agree not to use someone else's information to gain unauthorized access to another person's bill. We may, at the request of the Biller, provide to the Biller your email address, service address, or other data specifically requested by the Biller for purposes of the Biller matching your identity against its records or informing you about the Biller’s services and/or bill information.
e. Activation. We will notify the Biller of your request to receive electronic billing information.

Each electronic Biller reserves the right to accept or deny your request to receive electronic bills.
f. Authorization to obtain bill data. You authorize us to obtain bill data from your Billers that you have requested to send you electronic bills, and from your Billers that wish to send you trial electronic bills.

h. Cancellation of electronic bill notification. The electronic Biller reserves the right to cancel the presentment of electronic bills at any time. You may cancel electronic bill presentment at any time. The timeframe for cancellation of your electronic bill presentment may vary from Biller to Biller. It may take up to sixty (60) days, depending on the billing cycle of each Biller. We will notify your electronic Biller(s) as to the change in status of your account and it is your sole responsibility to make arrangements for an alternative form of bill delivery. We will not be responsible for presenting any electronic bills that are already in process at the time of cancellation.
i. Non-Delivery of electronic bill(s). You agree to hold us harmless should the Biller fail to deliver your statement(s). You are responsible for ensuring timely payment of all bills. Copies of previously delivered bills must be requested from the Biller directly.

When you enroll in our Alerts Service for text messages, you may send us a text message to our text message phone number with a designated command (such as BAL for balance) to receive a responding text message with the information requested by that designated command. Our Alerts Service also allows you to set threshold parameters for us to contact you via text and/or email if certain events occur, such as if your account balance drops below a certain level set by you or if you wish to receive periodic information such as daily balances. The information sent to you will be as accurate as reasonably possible, but should not be relied upon by you as real time information, as the text or email message may be delayed for one of many reasons (e.g., system outages, delayed service provider networks, etc.) or our system information may not have been updated to reflect all account transactions or other information at the time we received your text message or at the time the parameter to contact you was met. We may alter or terminate our Alerts Service at any time for any reason without notice.
As part of your consent in Section 8 of the General Terms (Text Messages, Calls and/or Emails to You), by providing us with a mobile telephone number for the Alerts Service, you consent to receive text messages from us at that mobile telephone number concerning your accounts (including text messages we may require to validate the mobile telephone number you provided to us) and for us to respond to text message requests received by us from that mobile telephone number.
Also, as part of your consent in Section 8 of the General Terms (Text Messages, Calls and/or Emails to You), by providing us with an email address for the Alerts Service, you consent to receiving email messages from us at that email address concerning your accounts and for us to respond to emails received by us from that email address.
AS PART OF SECTION 30 OF THE GENERAL TERMS (EXCLUSIONS OF WARRANTIES), YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE ALERT SERVICE IS PROVIDED “AS IS” AS A CONVENIENCE FOR YOU AND DOES NOT ALTER YOUR OBLIGATIONS AND RESPONSIBILITIES FOR YOUR ACCOUNTS WITH US.
AS PART OF SECTION 31 OF THE GENERAL TERMS (LIMITATION OF LIABILITY), YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, AMONG OTHER THINGS, WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIMS, LOSSES OR DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION USING THE ALERTS SERVICE OR THE ACCURACY OF THE INFORMATION PROVIDED.
We do not charge you a fee for the Alerts Service, but you may be charged fees by third parties for internet, phone, text or other services related to the Alerts Service. You acknowledge that the Alerts Service may not be compatible with all phones, wireless services, computers or other equipment.
You may change the threshold parameters for us to contact you via text and/or email if certain events occur by changing your parameters in our Online Banking platform. You may also text STOP to our text message phone number or delete your mobile telephone number in our Online Banking platform to stop alerts being sent to your mobile telephone number.
