ELECTRONIC FUND TRANSFERS
YOUR RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Indicated below are types of Electronic Fund Transfers we are capable of handling, some of which may not apply
to your account. Please read this disclosure carefully because it tells you your rights and obligations for the
transactions listed. You should keep this notice for future reference
Electronic Fund Transfers Initiated By Third Parties - You may authorize a third party to initiate electronic fund
transfers between your account and the third party's account. These transfers to make or receive payment may be
one-time occurrences or may recur as directed by you. These transfers may use the Automated Clearing House
(ACH) or other payments network. Your authorization to the third party to make these transfers can occur in a
number of ways. For example, your authorization to convert a check to an electronic fund transfer or to
electronically pay a returned check charge can occur when a merchant provides you with notice and you go
forward with the transaction (typically, at the point of purchase, a merchant will post a sign and print the notice
on a receipt). In all cases, these third party transfers will require you to provide the third party with your account
number and financial institution information. This information can be found on your check as well as on a deposit
or withdrawal slip. Thus, you should only provide your financial institution and account information (whether over
the phone, the Internet, or via some other method) to trusted third parties whom you have authorized to initiate
these electronic fund transfers. Examples of these transfers include, but are not limited to:
Preauthorized credits - You may make arrangements for certain direct deposits to be accepted into your
checking or savings.
• Preauthorized payments - You may make arrangements to pay certain recurring bills from your checking or
•Electronic check conversion - You may authorize a merchant or other payee to make a one-time electronic

transfer to collect a charge in the event a check is returned for insufficient funds.

& bull; purchase goods (in person, by phone, or online), pay for services (in person, by phone, or online), get cash from
a merchant, if merchant permits, or from a participating financial institution and do anything that a participating
merchant will accept.
Foreign Currency Conversion and Cross-Border Transactions - If you effect a transaction with your ShazamChek
Card in a currency other than U.S. dollars, MasterCard will convert the charge into U.S. dollar amount. The
MasterCard currency conversion procedure includes use of either a government - mandated exchange rate, or a
wholesale exchange rate selected by MasterCard. The exchange rate MasterCard uses will be a rate in effect on
the day the transaction is processed. This rate may differ from the rate in effect on the date of purchase or the
date the transaction was posted to your account.
MasterCard charges us a Currency Conversion Assessment of 20 basis points (.2% of the transaction) for performing
the currency conversion. In addition, MasterCard charges us Issuer Cross-Border Assessment of 80 basis points (.8%
of the transaction) on all cross-border transactions regardless of whether there is a currency conversion. As a
result, we will charge you a Cross-Border Transaction fee of 1% on all cross-border transactions regardless of
whether there is a currency conversion. A cross-border transaction is a transaction processed through Global
Clearing Management System or the MasterCard Debit Switch in which the country of the merchant is different
than the country of the cardholder.
Advisory Against Illegal Use. You agree not to use your card(s) for illegal gambling or illegal purpose. Display of a
payment card logo by, for example, an online merchant does not necessarily mean that transactions are lawful in
all jurisdictions in which the cardholder may be located.
MasterCard SecureCode. When using your ShazamChek card to purchase goods or services over the internet, you
may come across merchants that use the MasterCard SecureCode program. MasterCard SecureCode is a system
designed to reduce disputes and fraudulent activity by ensuring that the person using your ShazamChek card to
purchase goods and services online is in fact you. The objective of the program is to improve the security of
internet transactions as well as cardholder and merchant confidence in internet purchases.
We participate in the MasterCard SecureCode program and are proud to offer you this service. Prior to using the
MasterCard SecureCode program you must register for the program. You may sign up for the MasterCard
SecureCode by going to www.shazam.net/securecode/ and following the simple online instructions.

Notice Of ATM/Night Deposit Facility User Precautions
As with all financial transactions, please exercise discretion when using an automated teller machine (ATM) or
night deposit facility. For your own safety, be careful. The following suggestions may be helpful.
1. Prepare for your transactions at home (for instance, by filling out a deposit slip) to minimize your time at the
ATM or night deposit facility.
2. Mark each transaction in your account record, but not while at the ATM or night deposit facility. Always save
your ATM receipts. Don't leave them at the ATM or night deposit facility because they may contain important
3. Compare your records with the account statements you receive.
4. Don't lend your ATM card to anyone.
5. Remember, do not leave your card at the ATM. Do not leave any documents at a night deposit facility.
6. Protect the secrecy of your Personal Identification Number (PIN). Protect your ATM card as though it were cash.
Don't tell anyone your PIN. Don't give anyone information regarding your ATM card or PIN over the telephone.
Never enter your PIN in any ATM that does not look genuine, has been modified, has a suspicious device attached,
or is operating in a suspicious manner. Don't write your PIN where it can be discovered. For example, don't keep a
note of your PIN in your wallet or purse.
7. Prevent others from seeing you enter your PIN by using your body to shield their view.
8. If you lose your ATM card or if it is stolen, promptly notify us. You should consult the other disclosures you have
received about electronic fund transfers for additional information about what to do if your card is lost or stolen.
9. When you make a transaction, be aware of your surroundings. Look out for suspicious activity near the ATM or
night deposit facility, particularly if it is after sunset. At night, be sure that the facility (including the parking area
and walkways) is well lighted. Consider having someone accompany you when you use the facility, especially after
sunset. If you observe any problem, go to another ATM or night deposit facility.
10. Don't accept assistance from anyone you don't know when using an ATM or night deposit facility.
11. If you notice anything suspicious or if any other problem arises after you have begun an ATM transaction, you
may want to cancel the transaction, pocket your card and leave. You might consider using another ATM or coming
12. Don't display your cash; pocket it as soon as the ATM transaction is completed and count the cash later when
you are in the safety of your own car, home, or other secure surrounding.
13. At a drive-up facility, make sure all the car doors are locked and all of the windows are rolled up, except the
driver's window. Keep the engine running and remain alert to your surroundings.
14. We want the ATM and night deposit facility to be safe and convenient for you. Therefore, please tell us if you
know of any problem with a facility. For instance, let us know if a light is not working or there is any damage to a
facility. Please report any suspicious activity or crimes to both the operator of the facility and the local law
enforcement officials immediately.
