1. Introduction. This Terms of Service document and Schedules attached (hereinafter “Agreement”) is a contract between you and University Bank (hereinafter “we” or “us”) in connection with each service that is described in the rest of this Agreement that applies to services you use from us, as applicable (each, a “Service”) offered through our online banking site or mobile applications (the “Site”). The Agreement consists of these General Terms for Each Service (referred to as “General Terms”), and each schedule that follows that applies to the specific Service you are using from us. This Agreement applies to your use of the Service and the portion of the Site through which the Service is offered.
2. Service Providers. We are offering you the Service through one or more Service Providers that we have engaged to render some or all of the Service to you on our behalf. However, notwithstanding that we have engaged such a Service Provider to render some or all of the Service to you, we are the sole party liable to you for any payments or transfers conducted using the Service and we are solely responsible to you and any third party to the extent any liability attaches in connection with the Service. You agree that we have the right under this Agreement to delegate to Service Providers all of the rights and performance obligations that we have under this Agreement, and that the Service Providers will be third party beneficiaries of this Agreement and will be entitled to all the rights and protections that this Agreement provides to us.

Other defined terms are also present at the end of each set of Terms that follow after the General Terms, as applicable.
3. Amendments. We may amend this Agreement and any applicable fees and charges for the Service at any time by posting a revised version on the Site. The revised version will be effective at the time it is posted unless a delayed effective date is expressly stated in the revision. Any use of the Service after a notice of change or after the posting of a revised version of this Agreement on the Site will constitute your agreement to such changes and revised versions. Further, we may, from time to time, revise, update, upgrade or enhance the Service and/or related applications or material, which may render all such prior versions obsolete. Consequently, we reserve the right to terminate this Agreement as to all such prior versions of the Service, and/or related applications and material, and limit access to only the Service’s more recent revisions, updates, upgrades or enhancements.
4. Our Relationship With You. We are an independent contractor for all purposes, except that we act as your agent with respect to the custody of your funds for the Service.

We also do not guarantee the identity of any user of the Service (including but not limited to recipients to whom you send payments).
5. Assignment. You may not transfer or assign any rights or obligations you have under this Agreement without our prior written consent, which we may withhold in our sole discretion.

18. Failed or Returned Payment Instructions. In using the Service, you are requesting that we or our Service Provider attempt to make payments for you from your Eligible Transaction Account. If the Payment Instruction cannot be completed for any reason associated with your Eligible Transaction Account (for example, there are insufficient funds in your Eligible Transaction Account, or the Payment Instruction would exceed the credit or overdraft protection limit of your Eligible Transaction Account, to cover the payment), the Payment Instruction may or may not be completed. In certain circumstances, our Service Provider may either advance funds drawn on their corporate account or via an electronic debit, and in such circumstances will attempt to debit the Eligible Transaction Account a second time to complete the Payment Instruction. In some instances, you will receive a return notice from us or our Service Provider. In each such case, you agree that:
a. You will reimburse us or our Service Provider immediately upon demand the amount of the Payment Instruction if the payment has been delivered but there are insufficient funds in, or insufficient overdraft credits associated with, your Eligible Transaction Account to allow the debit processing to be completed;
b. You may be assessed a late fee equal to one and a half percent (1.5%) of any unpaid amounts plus costs of collection by our Service Provider or their third-party contractor if the Payment Instruction cannot be debited because you have insufficient funds in your Eligible Transaction Account, or the transaction would exceed the credit or overdraft protection limit of your Eligible Transaction Account, to cover the payment, or if the funds cannot otherwise be collected from you. The aforesaid amounts will be charged in addition to any NSF charges that may be assessed by us, as set forth in your fee schedule from us (including as disclosed on the Site) or your account agreement with us. You hereby authorize us and our Service Provider to deduct all of these amounts from your designated Eligible Transaction Account, including by ACH debit;

29. Law and Forum for Disputes.

TO THE EXTENT THAT THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT CONFLICT WITH APPLICABLE STATE OR FEDERAL LAW, SUCH STATE OR FEDERAL LAW SHALL REPLACE SUCH CONFLICTING TERMS ONLY TO THE EXTENT REQUIRED BY LAW. Unless expressly stated otherwise, all other terms of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect. Unless our account agreement with you states otherwise, you agree that any claim or dispute you may have against us (other than those which are arbitrated under Section 28 of the General Terms above) must be resolved by a court located in the Macomb County, Michigan.

The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement.

In addition, if applicable to you, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which states that a general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if not known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.
32. No Waiver. We shall not be deemed to have waived any rights or remedies hereunder unless such waiver is in writing and signed by one of our authorized representatives. No delay or omission on our part in exercising any rights or remedies shall operate as a waiver of such rights or remedies or any other rights or remedies. A waiver on any one occasion shall not be construed as a bar or waiver of any rights or remedies on future occasions.

a. The term “Transfer Money Terms” means these Account to Account Transfers Additional Terms. In the event of a conflict between the terms of this Schedule and the terms of the Agreement, this Schedule shall control with respect to the Account to Account Transfers. The Account to Account transfer service (for purposes of these Transfer Money Terms, and the General Terms as they apply to these Transfer Money Terms, the “Service”) 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.
b. 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.
c. You may initiate (1) a one-time Transfer Instruction for which processing shall be initiated immediately, (2) a one-time Transfer Instruction for which processing shall be initiated at a later specified date up to one (1) year, and (3) a recurring series of Transfer Instructions for which processing shall be initiated on the specified dates. Further details about each of these options can be found on the Site. 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. Transfers may be delayed or blocked to prevent fraud or comply with regulatory requirements. If we delay or block a Transfer Instruction that you have initiated, we will notify you in accordance with your user preferences (i.e., email, push notification).
d. 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.
e. 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. You may cancel a transfer at any time until it begins processing (as shown in the Service).
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 22 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 or Failed Transfers. In using the Service, you understand transfers may be returned or fail for various reasons such as, but not limited to, the External Account number is not valid. We will use reasonable efforts to research and correct the transfer to the intended Account or void the transfer. We will, to the extent permitted by law, make reasonable attempts to return any unclaimed, refused, refunded, prohibited, failed, or denied transfer to your Account that we debited for the funds transfer or use other reasonable efforts to return such transfer to you as permitted by law. In certain cases, we may require you to contact us or the financial institution for your External Account to initiate a request to receive such funds. You may receive a notification from us.

RDC services allow you to make deposits to your Account from remote locations by electronically transmitting digital images of your original paper checks, which are drawn on or payable through United States financial institutions in United States dollars to us. We may then use this Check Image to create an Electronic Check or Substitute Check for collection. The Check Clearing for the 21st Century Act and Regulation CC govern the use of RDC services and have enabled financial institutions to accept Substitute Checks, which are the legal equivalent to Original Checks for all purposes.
RDC FEES AND CHARGES. Any and all fees and charges associated with your Accounts remain in effect when accessing and using RDC services. You understand that standard data charges and messaging rates imposed by your wireless service provider may apply and that these rates and charges are your sole responsibility. Please contact your service provider for additional information.
ELIGIBILITY OF ITEMS. You may only submit Items for deposit that are within the dollar limits established for you. We reserve the right to limit the dollar amount and frequency of deposits made through RDC services by you, and we may raise or lower your dollar limit in the future at our sole discretion at any time. You agree that we are not obligated to accept any Check Image that we determine to be ineligible, and you agree to deposit only Checks as defined by section 1.8 in the DEFINITIONS section of this Agreement. You acknowledge that ineligible Items include, but are not limited to, the following: ACH payments or wire transfers, Items drawn on banks located outside of the United States, cash, illegible Items, incomplete Items, Items which are altered in any way, any Check that has previously been converted to a Substitute Check, any Item that contains indecipherable magnetic ink character recognition (“MICR”) data, any Check originally made payable to a party other than you and any stale or post-dated Items.
PROCESSING REQUIREMENTS. You agree you will not alter any Original Check or Check Image under any circumstance, and you warrant that all Original Checks are authorized for the amount stated on the Check by the person who created the Check. At the time of presentment to you by drawer, any Checks that you initiate for deposit must contain all necessary information on the front and back of the Check, including all endorsements, the identity of the drawer and paying bank that is preprinted on the Check, and the image quality must be in compliance with the minimum requirements established by the American National Standards Institute (“ANSI”). Determination of image quality compliance is in our sole discretion and any Check may be rejected if it does not meet this criterion. You also agree that all Check Images you submit for deposit through RDC services will not contain any viruses or other potentially harmful attributes.
ACCEPTANCE OF ITEMS. We are not responsible for any Items which we do not receive. Items received will each be reviewed for acceptability and any accepted Item will be converted into a Substitute Check. You agree that electronic conveyance of a Check does not equate to receipt of the Check. You agree that a notice confirming receipt of your deposit does not mean the Item is error-free or that it will not be rejected upon further review. If we do reject an Item for any reason, we will provide you with a notice of rejection; however, we will not be liable for loss suffered as a result of the rejected Item. We will also provide you with a notice if your deposited Item is dishonored, in which case you permit us to debit such amount from your account. You may confirm receipt of all deposited Items by viewing your account statements or by contacting us.
RETENTION AND DISPOSAL OF CHECKS. You agree to securely preserve and protect each Original Check for a period of 10 business days and during this period you agree to provide any Original Check to us upon request. Once you have obtained confirmation from us that we have received an Item, you agree to indicate its presentment via electronic means directly on the Original Check. You agree you will not deposit or submit any Original Check which you have already submitted or deposited electronically into an account you own with us or at any other financial institution. At the expiration of the 10 business days day period, you will destroy each Original Check in its entirety to ensure it is not presented for payment again. You understand that any misuse of a Check Image after presentment to us is your responsibility and you will be solely liable for any resulting loss.
