The Financial Institution may obtain, collect, use, and release confidential Depositor information as permitted or required by law or in a court proceeding or with the Depositor’s consent or as necessary to process Transactions. If the Depositor subscribes for PFM Services, special terms and conditions will also apply, as more particularly set forth in the PFM Schedule for Consent and Disclosure for PFM Service (“PFM Special Terms”) attached to and forming part of this Agreement.
  3. USE OF SERVICES – The Depositor may use Direct Services to access any permitted Account and to authorize such Transactions as may be permitted by the Financial Institution from time to time, commencing upon the day these terms and conditions are accepted by the Depositor and the Depositor’s request for Direct Services is approved by the Financial Institution. The Depositor cannot use Direct Services to authorize Transactions on an Account that otherwise requires more than 1 authorization (i.e. with multiple signature requirements) unless prior authorization is received in writing and with the Financial Institution’s approval. The Financial Institution may, from time to time, add to or delete from the types of use permitted and Direct Services offered.
    In connection with Direct Services, the Depositor agrees to provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about the Depositor, the Account, and any External Account when required by the Financial Institution. Further, the Depositor agrees to notify the Financial Institution of any changes to such information within a reasonable period of time.
  4. SERVICE CHARGES AND FEES – The Depositor will pay fees incurred on the Account, including, without limitation, fees imposed by a Third Party. The Depositor will pay the service charges that the Financial Institution establishes, from time to time, for Direct Services, including, without limitation, service charges for providing records regarding the Depositor that the Financial Institution is legally required to provide. The Depositor acknowledges receipt of a schedule of the Financial Institution’s charges for Direct Services in effect at the time of acceptance of this Agreement. The Financial Institution may, from time to time, increase or decrease the service charges for Direct Services and provide notice of such changes by sending a notice to the Depositor’s last known Notice Contact Information, by posting notice at the Financial Institution’s premises or on the Financial Institution’s website, by personal delivery, or by any other means the Financial Institution, acting reasonably, considers appropriate to bring the change to the attention of the Depositor. Current service charges for Direct Services may be obtained by contacting the Financial Institution or through the Financial Institution’s website. The Depositor is responsible for determining the then current service charges for Direct Services they request, in advance of requesting those services. By requesting Direct Services the Depositor acknowledges their agreement to pay service charges for the Direct Services requested by them then in effect. The Financial Institution can deduct service charges from the Account (or other accounts of the Depositor with the Financial Institution) when the service is requested or performed. New or amended service charges and fees will become effective on the earlier of the stated effective date following publication, when the service is requested or performed, or when incurred, and in any event, no later than 30 days after publication by the Financial Institution.
  5. AVAILABILITY OF DIRECT SERVICES – The Depositor acknowledges that the availability of Direct Services depends on telecommunications systems, computer hardware and software, and other equipment, including equipment belonging to the Financial Institution, Central 1, and Third Parties and that there is no guarantee or obligation to provide continuous or uninterrupted service. The Financial Institution and Central 1 are not liable for any cost, loss, damage, injury, inconvenience, or delay of any nature or kind whatsoever, whether direct, indirect, special, or consequential, that the Depositor may suffer in any way arising from non-continuous or interrupted service or the Financial Institution or Central 1 providing or failing to provide Direct Services, or from the malfunction or failure of telecommunication systems, computer hardware or software, or other equipment or other technical malfunctions or disturbances for any reason whatsoever, nor are the Financial Institution or Central 1 liable for any lost, incomplete, illegible, misdirected, intercepted, or stolen messages, or failed, incomplete, garbled, or delayed transmissions, or online failures (collectively, “Interruption Claims”), even if the Depositor has advised the Financial Institution of such consequences. The Depositor releases and agrees to hold harmless the Financial Institution and Central 1 from any and all Interruption Claims.
  6. AUTHORIZATION FOR TRANSACTIONS – The Depositor acknowledges and agrees that:
    1. using the PAC to authorize a Transaction constitutes authorization of that Transaction in the same manner as if authorization was given by the Depositor in person or as otherwise contemplated or permitted by the Account Agreement;
    2. the Depositor will be bound by each such Transaction; and
    3. once the PAC has been used to authorize a Transaction, the Transaction cannot be revoked or countermanded.
    The Depositor irrevocably authorizes and directs the Financial Institution to debit or credit, as the case may be, the amount of any Transaction to the Account, together with any service charges or fees, authorized using the PAC, the PIW, in person by the Depositor, or as otherwise contemplated or permitted by the Account Agreement, in accordance with the normal practices of the Financial Institution, which may be amended from time to time without notice.
  7. PAC AND PIW CONFIDENTIALITY – The Financial Institution can assign and/or require the Depositor to select and use a PAC and/or PIW in connection with this Agreement. The Depositor agrees to keep the PAC and PIW confidential and will only reveal them to authorized Financial Institution agents or officers when required by the Financial Institution. The Depositor agrees not to record the PAC or PIW in any format or medium. The Depositor can change the PAC or PIW at any time. The Depositor agrees to change the PAC or PIW if and when required by the Financial Institution. The Depositor acknowledges that the PAC and/or PIW must be changed if there is a change in the persons authorized to provide Remote Instructions on the Account.
    The Depositor is responsible for all use of the PAC and/or PIW and for all Transactions on the Account authorized using Direct Services. 
    The Depositor acknowledges that the Financial Institution may, from time to time, implement additional security measures, and the Depositor will comply with all instructions and procedures issued by the Financial Institution in respect of such security measures. The Depositor is aware of the risks of unsolicited email, telephone calls, and text message transmissions from persons purporting to be representatives of the Financial Institution. The Depositor agrees not to respond to such unsolicited communications and will only initiate communications with the Financial Institution either through the Financial Institution’s Internet banking website or through the Financial Institution’s published contact information as shown on the Financial Institution’s website.
    If the Depositor discloses the PAC to a Third Party, and if the Financial Institution becomes aware of such disclosure, the Financial Institution may, in its sole discretion, waive the confidentiality requirements described in this article 7, PAC and PIW Confidentiality, but only if such disclosure is for a reputable personal financial management service similar to that described in article 29, Personal Financial Management. Notwithstanding any such waiver, the Depositor acknowledges and agrees that the Depositor remains responsible for all use of the PAC by the Third Party. .
  8. REMOTE INSTRUCTIONS – The Depositor may provide Remote Instructions to any branch of the Financial Institution as permitted by the Financial Institution, online through the Direct Services web portal, or through the Financial Institution’s telephone banking service, if any. The Remote Instructions may concern the Account maintained at that branch, or concern other Transactions and arrangements conducted at or with that branch. 
    The Financial Institution may, but will not be obliged to, act on Remote Instructions received in the name of the Depositor along with any requisite PAC and/or PIW, if any, to the same extent as if the Remote Instructions were written instructions delivered to the Financial Institution by mail and signed by the Depositor authorized to operate the Account. Any such Remote Instructions are deemed genuine.
    The Financial Institution may, in its sole discretion, acting reasonably, delay acting on or refuse to act on any Remote Instruction.
    A Remote Instruction is deemed received by the Financial Institution only when actually received and brought to the attention of an authorized officer of the Financial Institution capable of acting upon and implementing the Remote Instruction.
    Remote Instructions can be transmitted to the Financial Institution at the telephone or fax number or email address provided by the Financial Institution, or at such other telephone or fax number or email address as the Financial Institution may advise the Depositor by notice in writing, or online through the Direct Services web portal. Any of the persons that constitute the Depositor may act alone and provide Remote Instructions to the Financial Institution, even if 2 or more signatures are otherwise required to operate the Account. The Financial Institution, acting reasonably, is entitled to assume that any person identifying himself or herself as the Depositor is in fact the Depositor, and can rely upon such, and the Financial Institution may act on the Remote Instructions provided by any such person. All Remote Instructions given to the Financial Institution in the name of the Depositor will bind the Depositor.
  9. VERIFICATION AND ACCEPTANCE OF TRANSACTIONS BY THE FINANCIAL INSTITUTION – All Transactions are subject to verification and acceptance by the Financial Institution and, if not accepted, or if accepted but subsequently determined to be in error or otherwise improper or unauthorized, the Financial Institution may, but is not obliged to, reverse them from the Account. Verification may take place at a date later than the date the Depositor authorized the Transaction, which may affect the Transaction date. Notwithstanding any other provision herein, if at any time the Financial Institution, acting reasonably, ever determines that a credit made to or traced to the Account was made in error or based upon a mistake of fact, or induced through or in any way tainted by fraud or unlawful conduct, the Financial Institution may place a hold on the credit and/or reverse the credit and any applicable interest. 
  10. FINANCIAL INSTITUTION RECORDS – The Financial Institution’s records of all Transactions will be deemed to be correct and will be conclusive and binding on the Depositor. All Transactions will appear on the regular statements of account for the Account.
    If the Depositor believes or suspects that the records of the Financial Institution contain an error or omission, or reflect unauthorized Account activity, the Depositor must give immediate written notice to the Financial Institution, and in any event, must do so within the time provided in the Account Agreement. 
    A copy of any fax or email message or other Remote Instructions or the Financial Institution’s notes of any Remote Instructions given by telephone may be entered into evidence in any court proceedings as if it were an original document signed by the Depositor. The Depositor will not object to the admission of the Financial Institution’s or Central 1’s records as evidence in any legal proceeding on the grounds that such records are not originals, are not in writing, are hearsay, or are documents containing information extracted from a computer, and all such records will be conclusive evidence of the Remote Instructions in the absence of documentary recorded evidence to the contrary. 
    In the absence of evidence to the contrary, the records of the Financial Institution are conclusive for all purposes, including litigation, in respect of any other matter or thing relating to the state of the Accounts between the Depositor and the Financial Institution in respect of any Transaction. 
  11. LIABILITY FOR ERRORS AND OMISSIONS – If the Financial Institution makes an error or omission in recording or processing any Transaction, the Financial Institution is only liable for the amount of the error or omission if the Depositor has not caused or contributed to the error or omission in any way, has complied with this Agreement and the Account Agreement, and has given written notice to the Financial Institution within the time provided in the Account Agreement, and to the extent the liability is not otherwise excluded by this Agreement or the Account Agreement.
    If the Depositor has given such notice, the Financial Institution’s maximum liability is limited to the amount of the error or omission. In no event will the Financial Institution be liable for any delay, inconvenience, cost, loss, or damage (whether direct, special, indirect, exemplary, or consequential) whatsoever caused by, or arising from, any such error or omission. 
  12. EXCLUSION OF FINANCIAL INSTITUTION RESPONSIBILITY – The Financial Institution is not responsible for any loss or damage suffered or incurred by the Depositor except to the extent caused by the gross negligence or intentional or wilful misconduct of the Financial Institution, and in any such case the Financial Institution will not be liable for any indirect, special, consequential, or exemplary damages (including, but not limited to, loss of profits) regardless of the cause of action and even if the Financial Institution has been advised of the possibility of such damages. In no event will the Financial Institution be liable for any cost, loss, or damage (whether direct, indirect, special, or consequential) suffered by the Depositor that is caused by:  
    1. the actions of, or any failure to act by, the Depositor, or any Third Party (and no Third Party will be considered to be acting as an agent for the Financial Institution unless expressly authorized to do so for that purpose);
    2. the inaccuracies in, or inadequacies of, any information furnished by the Depositor to the Financial Institution, including, but not limited to any failed, duplicative, or erroneous transmission of Remote Instructions;
    3. the failure by the Financial Institution to perform or fulfill any of its obligations to the Depositor, due to any cause beyond the Financial Institution’s control; or
    4. forged, unauthorized, or fraudulent use of services, or forged, unauthorized, or fraudulent instructions or Instruments, or material alteration to an instruction, including Remote Instructions.
  13. RISKS AND DUTIES – Except for loss caused exclusively by the Financial Institution’s gross negligence or intentional or wilful misconduct, and subject to the limitations of liability in this Agreement or the Account Agreement, the Depositor assumes all risk of loss due to the use of Direct Services, including, without limitation, the risk of Third Party fraud. The Depositor further agrees that they will notify the Financial Institution immediately: 
    1. of any suspected or actual misuse or unauthorized use of the PAC and/or PIW; or
    2. if the PAC and/or PIW becomes known to anyone other than the Depositor; and
    3. if the Depositor receives Notification of any Transaction affecting the Account that alerts the Depositor of Account activity that was not authorized by them.
    The Depositor will change the PAC and/or PIW if either of the notification requirements above in a) or b) arises.
    The notification requirement above in b) does not apply if the Depositor has disclosed the PAC to a Third Party for a personal financial management service similar to that described in article 29, Personal Financial Management.
    The Depositor acknowledges that the Depositor is responsible for all use made of the PAC and/or PIW and that the Financial Institution is not liable for the Depositor’s failure to comply with any part of this Agreement. The Depositor is liable for all authorized and unauthorized use, including all Transactions. The Depositor is also liable for all fraudulent or worthless deposits made into the Account. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Depositor expressly acknowledges and agrees that they shall be bound by and liable for any use of the PAC or PIW by a member of the Depositor’s household. 
    The Depositor is liable for all transfers to linked accounts. The Depositor bears all risk for all such Transactions.
    Where the Depositor knows of facts that give rise or ought to give rise to suspicion that any Transactions, or instructions in respect of the Account, or Instruments deposited to the Account are fraudulent, unauthorized, counterfeit, or induced through or in any way tainted by fraud or unlawful conduct, or otherwise likely to be returned to the Financial Institution or found invalid for any reason, the Depositor has a duty to make reasonable inquiries of proper parties into such Transactions, instructions, or Instruments, as the case may be, to determine whether they are valid authorized Transactions, instructions, or Instruments, as the case may be, before negotiating or, alternatively, accessing any funds derived from such Transactions, instructions, or Instruments, and to disclose to the Financial Institution, the Depositor’s suspicion and the facts upon which the Depositor’s suspicion is based (“Suspicious Circumstances”).
    The Financial Institution may, in its sole discretion, investigate any Suspicious Circumstances disclosed by the Depositor, but the Financial Institution does not owe the Depositor any obligation to undertake its own investigation of Suspicious Circumstances. The Financial Institution may place a hold on all or some of the Depositor’s Accounts pending investigation of any improper use of any Account. Any hold imposed by the Financial Institution pursuant to any of the terms of this Agreement, or investigation undertaken by the Financial Institution, is imposed or undertaken by the Financial Institution at the Financial Institution’s sole discretion and for the Financial Institution’s sole benefit. 
    Release of a hold by the Financial Institution is not a confirmation that a Transaction, instruction, or Instrument is in fact good and may not be relied upon as such by the Depositor. If, to the satisfaction of the Financial Institution, any improper use is established, the Financial Institution can withdraw or suspend Direct Services and/or operation of the Account without notice.
  14. RIGHTS FOR INNOCENT BREACH – Subject to the provisions of this Agreement and the Account Agreement:
    1. if the Depositor did not reveal the PAC and/or PIW to any other person, other than authorized Financial Institution agents or officers when required by the Financial Institution, or write it down or otherwise record it, and changed the PAC and/or PIW when required by this Agreement, the Depositor will not be liable for any unauthorized use that occurs after the Financial Institution has received written notice from the Depositor that the PAC and/or PIW may have become known to someone other than the Depositor. The Financial Institution will not be considered to have received written notice until the Financial Institution gives the Depositor written acknowledgement of receipt of such notice; and
    2. the Financial Institution will not otherwise be liable for any damages or other liabilities that the Depositor may incur by reason of the Financial Institution acting, or failing to act, on Remote Instructions given in the name of the Depositor whether or not the Depositor actually gave the Remote Instructions. The Financial Institution will not be liable for any damages or other liabilities that the Depositor may incur by reason of the Financial Institution acting, or failing to act, on no statement requests made by the Depositor through Direct Services whether or not the Depositor actually gave the Remote Instructions.
  15. PROCEDURES FOR ADDRESSING UNAUTHORIZED TRANSACTIONS AND OTHER TRANSACTION PROBLEMS – In the event of a problem with a Direct Services Transaction or an unauthorized Direct Services Transaction, the Depositor will report the issue immediately to the Financial Institution. The Financial Institution will investigate and respond to the issue on a timely basis. The Financial Institution will not unreasonably restrict the Depositor from the use of the Account subject to dispute, as long as it is reasonably evident that the Depositor did not cause or contribute to the problem or unauthorized Transaction, has fully cooperated with the investigation, and has complied with this Agreement and the Account Agreement. The Financial Institution will respond to reports of a problem or unauthorized Transaction within 10 business days and will, within a reasonable period of time thereafter, indicate what reimbursement, if any, will be made for any loss incurred by the Depositor. Reimbursement will be made for losses from a problem or unauthorized Transaction in this time frame provided that the Depositor has complied with this Agreement and on the balance of probabilities it is shown that the Depositor took all reasonable and required steps to:
    1. protect the confidentiality of the PAC and PIW as required by this Agreement and the Account Agreement;
    2. use security safeguards to protect against and detect loss, theft, and unauthorized access as required by this Agreement and the Account Agreement; and
    3. act immediately, upon receiving a Notification of, or becoming aware of, an unauthorized Transaction, to mitigate against further loss and report the issue to the Financial Institution.
  16. ACCESS TERMINAL SECURITY – If Direct Services are made available through the Internet or a telephone service provider, the Depositor acknowledges that, although the Financial Institution uses security safeguards to protect against loss, theft, and unauthorized access, because of the nature of data transmission, security is not guaranteed and information is transmitted at the risk of the Depositor. The Depositor acknowledges and shall ensure that any private Access Terminal used to access Direct Services is auto-locked by a password to prevent unauthorized use of the Access Terminal, has a current anti-Contaminant program, and a firewall, and that it is his or her personal responsibility to reduce the risk of Contaminants or online attacks and to comply with this provision. The Depositor further acknowledges that to reduce the risk of unauthorized access to the Account through the Access Terminal, the Depositor will sign out of Direct Services and, where applicable, close the browser when finished using it. The Depositor further acknowledges that using public or shared computers and Access Terminals, or using Access Terminals in a public place, or through an open WiFi or shared Bluetooth portal, to access Direct Services increases the risk of unauthorized access to the Account, and will take all reasonable precautions to avoid such use or inadvertent disclosure of the PAC and/or PIW.
  17. FRAUD PREVENTION AND DETECTION – The Depositor agrees to maintain appropriate security controls and procedures to prevent and detect thefts of Instruments, or losses due to fraud or forgery involving Instruments, or fraudulent or unauthorized Transactions.
    The Depositor further agrees to diligently supervise and monitor the conduct and work of all agents having any role in the preparation of the Depositor’s Instruments, the Depositor’s reconciliation of the statement of account for the Account, or other banking functions.
  18. LINKS – If Direct Services are made available through the Internet, the Financial Institution’s website may provide links to other websites, including those of Third Parties who may also provide services to the Depositor. The Depositor acknowledges that all those other websites and Third Party services are independent from the Financial Institution’s and may be subject to separate agreements that govern their use. The Financial Institution and Central 1 have no liability for those other websites or their contents or the use of Third Party services. Links are provided for convenience only, and the Depositor assumes all risk resulting from accessing or using such other websites or Third Party services.
  19. THIRD PARTY SERVICES – The Financial Institution and Central 1 may, from time to time, make services provided by Third Parties available through Direct Services or the Financial Institution’s website. The Depositor acknowledges and agrees that:
    1. the Financial Institution and Central 1 make the services of Third Parties available through Direct Services or the Financial Institution’s website for the convenience of Depositors. The services are provided by the Third Party and not the Financial Institution or Central 1. The Depositor’s relationship with the Third Party shall be a separate relationship, independent of the relationship between the Depositor and the Financial Institution and Central 1, and such a relationship is outside the control of the Financial Institution and Central 1;
    2. the Financial Institution and Central 1 make no representation or warranty to the Depositor with respect to any services provided by a Third Party even though those services may be accessed by the Depositor through Direct Services or the Financial Institution’s website;
    3. the Depositor assumes all risks associated with accessing or using the services of Third Parties;
    4. the Financial Institution and Central 1 have no responsibility or liability to the Depositor in respect of services provided by a Third Party;
    5. any dispute that relates to services provided by a Third Party is strictly between the Depositor and the Third Party, and the Depositor will raise no defence or claim against the Financial Institution and/or Central 1; and
    6. the Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act and Regulations may apply to the services provided by Third Parties and that the Third Parties may, from time to time, adopt policies and procedures to address the reporting, record-keeping, client identification, and ongoing monitoring requirements of that legislation.
  20. INDEMNITY – The Depositor agrees to indemnify and hold the Financial Institution and its service providers and Central 1 and all of their connected parties, including, without limitation, their respective agents, directors, officers, employees, affiliates, and licensees (collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”) harmless from and against any and all liabilities and costs, including, without limitation, reasonable legal fees and expenses incurred by the Indemnified Parties in connection with any claim or demand arising out of or connected to the Depositor’s use of Direct Services. Depositors must assist and cooperate as fully as reasonably required by the Indemnified Parties in the defence of any such claim or demand. The disclaimers, liability exclusions, liability limitations, and indemnity provisions in this Agreement survive indefinitely after the termination of this Agreement and apply to the extent permitted by law. Without limiting the foregoing, the Depositor will indemnify and save the Indemnified Parties harmless from and against all liability, costs, loss, expenses, and damages, including direct, indirect, and consequential, incurred by the Indemnified Parties as a result of:
    1. any of the Indemnified Parties making Direct Services available to the Depositor;
    2. any of the Indemnified Parties acting upon, or refusing to act upon, Remote Instructions;
    3. any of the Indemnified Parties acting upon, or refusing to act upon, no statement requests made by the Depositor through Direct Services;
    4. any Transaction that results in a negative balance in the Account; or
    5. the consequences of any Transaction authorized by the Depositor.
    This indemnity will enure to the benefit of the Indemnified Parties and will be binding upon the Depositor and the Depositor’s heirs, executors, successors, and assigns and shall survive the termination of this Agreement for any act or omission prior to termination as gives rise to an indemnified claim, even if notice is received after termination.
  21. DIRECT SERVICES ACKNOWLEDGEMENT – The Depositor acknowledges and agrees that:
    1. when transfers and bill payments are authorized through Direct Services, funds are deemed irrevocably transferred out of the Account and the Transaction cannot be revoked or countermanded by the Depositor;
    2. anyone with access to the PAC and/or PIW may be able to access Direct Services and may use the PAC and/or PIW to transfer money out of an Account, set up bill payment arrangements, make bill payments, and authorize any other Transaction;
    3. the Financial Institution will not be liable in any way to the Depositor or any other person for processing or accepting on the Account any Transaction that results in the transfer of money out of the Account or in the payment of bills, even if the money is used for the benefit of a person other than the Depositor, or if bills owed by a person other than the Depositor are paid;

If there is any conflict between the PFM Special Terms and the terms and conditions in the rest of this Agreement or in respect of this article 29, Personal Financial Management, then the PFM Special Terms will apply for the PFM Service.

    1. in connection with the PFM Service, the Depositor agrees to provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about an asset and/or liability when required by the Financial Institution. Further, the Depositor agrees to notify the Financial Institution of any changes to such information within a reasonable period of time;

    9. the Depositor acknowledges and agrees that any information provided by the Depositor about an asset or liability that is not under an External Account or the Account, is provided at the sole discretion of the Depositor. Further, the Depositor agrees that it is the Depositor’s sole responsibility to keep such information current.
  30. REMOTE DEPOSITS – If the Financial Institution, through Direct Services, makes the Remote Deposit Service available and the Depositor uses the Remote Deposit Service, the Depositor acknowledges and agrees that:
    1. solely for the Remote Deposit Service, the Financial Institution appoints the Depositor as its agent, to act on behalf of the Financial Institution in the creation and transmission of an Official Image to the Financial Institution, and any other related duties that may be required by the Financial Institution, all in accordance with the Rules and applicable legislation governing Instruments. In this context, transmission to and receipt by the Financial Institution of the Official Image will have the same effect as if the Instrument was delivered to a branch of the Financial Institution for negotiation and clearing. The Depositor acknowledges and agrees that this role as agent cannot be further delegated by the Depositor. Further, the Depositor acknowledges and agrees that the Depositor shall be personally responsible and liable for:
      1. compliance with this Agreement,
      2. maintaining adequate security over any Access Terminal used, the location of use of the Access Terminal, and any passwords so as to prevent use by others or interception of data transmitted,
      3. ensuring that all Official Images created and transmitted are of good quality and fully and accurately capture all material details of the Eligible Bill,
      4. maintaining adequate safeguards and procedures for the preservation of originals of all Eligible Bills transmitted as Official Images, and
      5. verifying that deposits expected to be made to the Account reconcile with dates and amounts applicable to transmissions made using the Remote Deposit Service and for providing immediate notice to the Financial Institution of any errors, omissions, irregularities, or concerns about suspicions of fraudulent Instruments or compromise of the security applicable to the use of the Remote Deposit Service;
    2. the Financial Institution may, upon receipt of what reasonably appears to qualify as an Official Image, treat such as an Official Image and, as if it were an original of an Instrument received at a branch of the Financial Institution, subject to the Account Agreement and any policies of the Financial Institution governing Instruments;
    3. the creation of an Official Image will be done using a method authorized by the Financial Institution, in its sole discretion, from time to time. Further, the Depositor agrees to take all proper and necessary precautions to prevent any other person from purporting to create or transmit an Official Image to the credit of the Depositor’s Account;
    4. nothing in this Agreement obliges the Financial Institution to accept for deposit any item whether it is or purports to be an Official Image. The Depositor shall not purport to create or transmit an Official Image of any item that does not qualify as an Eligible Bill or any item that is post-dated, stale-dated, received by the Depositor from anyone other than the drawer of that item, or that is in any way altered. If the Depositor has any suspicions or concerns about the authenticity, validity, negotiability, or chain of title to any item purporting to be an Eligible Bill, then the Depositor shall not seek to use the Remote Deposit Service for negotiation or collection of that item, but will instead bring the original of that item to the counter of the branch of Account, identify the specific concerns to the Financial Institution, and fully disclose all material facts known by the Depositor relating to that item and fully cooperate with any inquiry or investigation of the concerns;
    5. under the Remote Deposit Service, Eligible Bills are restricted to those Instruments in Canadian dollars or United States dollars, drawn on a financial institution domiciled in Canada or the United States, as and if applicable, in the sole discretion of the Financial Institution, from time to time. The Depositor shall not seek to use the Remote Deposit Service to deposit any Instrument into an Account different than the currency denominated on the Instrument. Canadian dollar Instruments shall only be deposited to a Canadian dollar Account. United States dollar Instruments shall only be deposited to a United States dollar Account;
    6. Official Images received through the Remote Deposit Service are subject to number and dollar limits that may change from time to time without prior notice to the Depositor;
    7. any Transaction made on any day or at any time during which the Financial Institution is not open for business, may be credited to the Account on the next business day of the Financial Institution;
    8. once an Official Image of an Eligible Bill has been transmitted to the Financial Institution through the Remote Deposit Service, no further Official Images of that Eligible Bill will be created or transmitted through the Remote Deposit Service (or any other similar service) unless the Depositor is requested to do so by the Financial Institution in writing. Further, the Depositor agrees to make no further use of the original of an imaged Eligible Bill, and shall safely retain possession of the original of the Eligible Bill without further negotiation, transfer, or delivery to any other person or holder. In addition to all obligations and responsibilities either set forth in this Agreement or elsewhere, the Depositor agrees to indemnify and hold the Financial Institution and its service providers and Central 1 and all of their connected parties, including, without limitation, their respective agents, directors, officers, employees, affiliates, and licensees (collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”) harmless from and against any and all liabilities and costs, including, without limitation, reasonable legal fees and expenses incurred by the Indemnified Parties in connection with any claim or demand arising out of or connected to the Depositor’s use of the Remote Deposit Service or duplicate negotiation of items that were at any time presented as Official Images of Eligible Bills. The Depositor must assist and cooperate as fully as reasonably required by the Indemnified Parties in the defence of any such claim or demand. The disclaimers, liability exclusions, liability limitations, and indemnity provisions in this Agreement survive indefinitely after the termination of this Agreement and apply to the extent permitted by law. Without limiting the foregoing, the Depositor will indemnify and save the Indemnified Parties harmless from and against all liability, costs, loss, expenses, and damages, including direct, indirect, and consequential incurred by the Indemnified Parties as a result of any breach of this Agreement, or any claims arising from or relating to misuse of Official Images or items purporting to be Official Images, or negotiation of Eligible Bills where an Official Image has also been transmitted for collection;
    9. on transmission of an Official Image of an Eligible Bill to the Financial Institution, the Depositor is responsible for immediately marking the face of the Eligible Bill with a blatant notation or mark that prevents renegotiation of the Eligible Bill and indicates that the Eligible Bill has been imaged and transmitted, taking care not to obliterate any material particulars of that Eligible Bill. (For example: This can be done by writing “void” or “paid” or placing a diagonal stroke across the face of the item with a pencil, pen, or brightly coloured highlighter.) For a period of 120 days after transmission of the Official Image to the Financial Institution, or such shorter period as stipulated by the Financial Institution in writing, the Depositor shall retain and produce to the Financial Institution on written request the original of all imaged Eligible Bills. If the Depositor receives a written request to retain or produce, the Depositor will comply with the written request, and shall, if requested, produce, by delivering to the Financial Institution, the original of all specified Eligible Bills within 5 business days of such request. If the Depositor fails to comply with the written request made pursuant to this provision, then the Financial Institution can place a hold on or reverse any credit made to the Account in relation to those specified Eligible Bills, even if such creates an overdraft on the Account. If no written request is received within that time, then 120 calendar days after an Official Image has been transmitted to the Financial Institution through the Remote Deposit Service or such shorter period as stipulated by the Financial Institution in writing, and provided that the Depositor has verified a credit to the Account that reconciles to the Official Image transmitted, the Depositor agrees to immediately proceed with destruction of the original of the Eligible Bill. Destruction methods include shredding, pulping, burning, or any other means that ensures that the original Instrument cannot be reused;
    10. the Depositor is responsible for any and all costs associated with obtaining a replacement Instrument in the event that the Financial Institution requests that the Depositor re-transmit an Official Image in accordance with h) above, and the original Instrument was destroyed in accordance with i) above or otherwise lost;
    11. in the Financial Institution’s sole discretion, electronic notices for purposes related to the Remote Deposit Service may be generated and sent to the Depositor at the Notice Contact Information after the Depositor uses the Remote Deposit Service to transmit an Official Image, including to advise the Depositor of the receipt by the Financial Institution of an Official Image. To receive such electronic notices, the Depositor must provide the Notice Contact Information required by the Financial Institution;
    12. an electronic notice, if any, sent in connection with the Remote Deposit Service is for information purposes only and is no guarantee that the Official Image will be accepted by the Financial Institution or that the Account will be credited; and
    13. the Financial Institution will not be liable for any cost, expense, loss, damage, or inconvenience of any nature or kind whatsoever arising as a result of use of the Remote Deposit Service, including, but not limited to, a delay in processing a Transaction or the Financial Institution requiring the Depositor to obtain another Instrument.
  31. ONLINE PAYMENT – If the Financial Institution, through Direct Services, makes the Online Payment Service available and the Depositor uses the Online Payment Service, the Depositor acknowledges and agrees that:
    1. the Online Payment Service is only available in Canadian dollars from Participating Merchants;
    2. Transactions for the Online Payment Service must be initiated by the Depositor through the appropriate online payment option available on the website of a Participating Merchant;
    3. as soon as the Depositor authorizes a Transaction through the Online Payment Service, and provided that there are available funds or credit, the amount of the Transaction will be withdrawn from the Account or a hold will be placed in the amount of the Transaction. The Financial Institution will hold the Transaction amount until the Participating Merchant successfully claims the Transaction or 30 minutes have elapsed, whichever comes first. The Financial Institution has no obligation to and will not pay interest on the Transaction amount. To the extent permitted at law, the Financial Institution is deemed to have a security interest in the Transaction amount from the time the Account is held until the Participating Merchant successfully claims the Transaction or the hold is removed;
    4. Transactions sent and received through the Online Payment Service are subject to number and dollar limits that may change from time to time without prior notice to the Depositor;
    5. the Financial Institution will not be responsible or liable for any losses or damages incurred as a result of funds held and/or limits set by the Financial Institution, Acxsys Corporation, a Participating Merchant, or a Participating Financial Institution;
    6. the Financial Institution, the Participating Financial Institution, and Central 1 are entitled to pay the Transaction amount to anyone who claims to be the Participating Merchant and provides the payment authorization details within 30 minutes of the Transaction being authorized by the Depositor;
    7. the Financial Institution will not be liable for losses or damages incurred as a result of a person other than the intended Participating Merchant receiving the Transaction amount;
    8. if the Participating Merchant cancels, declines, or fails to claim a Transaction that the Depositor authorized, the Transaction amount will be reinstated after 30 minutes have elapsed since the Transaction was authorized. However, the Financial Institution cannot guarantee the date or time that the hold on the Transaction amount will be removed;
    9. the Financial Institution, Central 1, or Acxsys Corporation may cancel a Transaction once it is authorized but before payment authorization details are sent to the Participating Merchant, if there is reason to believe that a mistake has occurred or that the Transaction is a product of unlawful or fraudulent activity;
    10. once payment authorization details have been sent to the Participating Merchant, a Transaction cannot be cancelled. Payment authorization details are sent immediately after a Transaction is authorized by the Depositor;
    11. all disputes, including requests for refunds, will be handled directly between the Depositor and the Participating Merchant without the participation of the Financial Institution or any other party. A refund, if any, may be received through Direct Services and Central 1 for credit to the Account, or through such other method the Participating Merchant deems appropriate;
    12. the Financial Institution may refuse, in its sole discretion, to provide the Online Payment Service for the Depositor;
    13. in the Financial Institution’s sole discretion, electronic Notifications for purposes related to the Online Payment Service may be generated and sent to the Depositor at the Notice Contact Information after the Depositor authorizes a Transaction, including to advise the Depositor that the Account has been debited. To receive an electronic Notification, the Depositor must provide the Notice Contact Information required by the Financial Institution;
    14. an electronic Notification, if any, sent in connection with the Online Payment Service is for information purposes only and is no guarantee that the Participating Merchant will successfully claim the Transaction or that the Depositor has successfully purchased the product or service from the Participating Merchant; and
    15. the Financial Institution will not be liable for any cost, expense, loss, damage, or inconvenience of any nature or kind whatsoever arising as a result of using the Online Payment Services, including, but not limited to, a delay in processing a Transaction or a Participating Merchant failing to claim a Transaction.
  32. VIEWING CHEQUE IMAGING – The Financial Institution may, in connection with Direct Services, permit the Depositor to view and print images of Instruments drawn on the Account and such images may be made available before the Financial Institution has determined whether the Instrument will be honoured or accepted. The Depositor acknowledges and agrees that such images are made available by the Financial Institution as a service to the Depositor and the provision of such images does not mean that the Transaction has been processed, nor does it in any way oblige the Financial Institution to honour or accept the Instrument.
  33. VIEWING DOCUMENTS – The Financial Institution may, in connection with Direct Services, permit the Depositor to view and print images of documents. The Depositor acknowledges and agrees that such images are made available by the Financial Institution as a service to the Depositor and the provision of such images does not in any way oblige the Financial Institution to permit the Depositor to view and print images of documents. 
  34. MODIFICATION OF AGREEMENT – The Financial Institution may, in its sole discretion, amend the terms and conditions of this Agreement as it relates to the Depositor’s future use of Direct Services from time to time, for any reason, without any liability to the Depositor or any other person.

The Depositor is responsible for regularly reviewing the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If the Depositor uses the Direct Services after the effective date of an amendment to this Agreement, it will mean that the Depositor agrees to the amendment and adopts and is bound by the newer version of this Agreement.

If We then implement the Upgrade, this Agreement is deemed to be accepted by and binding on You. If multiple individuals constitute the Depositor, this Agreement will be deemed provisionally accepted until all individuals who constitute the Depositor under the agreement for Retail Direct Services provide evidence of their acceptance of this Agreement to the Financial Institution ("Provisionally Accepted"). You agree to ensure that all such individuals provide timely evidence of their acceptance of this Agreement to Us.

      While this Agreement is Provisionally Accepted, one of the following states will apply:

      1. if Transactions under Direct Services for Small Business require two Signing Officers to authorize, a Signing Officer who has provided evidence of acceptance of this Agreement can view the Account using an Access Terminal, but cannot use Direct Services for Small Business as set out in this Agreement until at least one other required Signing Officer has evidenced their acceptance of this Agreement to Us; or

      2. if Transactions under Direct Services for Small Business require one Signing Officer to authorize, a Signing Officer who has provided evidence of acceptance of this Agreement can use Direct Services for Small Business as set out in this Agreement.

        In addition, when this Agreement is Provisionally Accepted, and only if the Financial Institution offers the PFM Service, as it is defined in the agreement for Retail Direct Services, the special terms and conditions regarding the PFM Service, as set out in the agreement for Retail Direct Services will continue to apply. Further, data concerning Transactions, if any, authorized under Direct Services for Small Business will be sent to the Third Party PFM Service provider, Yodlee Inc., in the same manner as data for transactions authorized under Retail Direct Services.

        When evidence of this Agreement being accepted by the required number of Signing Officers has been provided to Us, this Agreement will no longer be Provisionally Accepted, the Upgrade will be complete, and this article 3, Upgrading, will no longer apply. We may, in Our sole discretion, revert to the pre-Upgrade status if evidence of acceptance of this Agreement by all required Signing Officers is not provided in a timely manner as required.

    4. USE OF SERVICES - You may use or authorize the use of The Services to access any permitted Account and to authorize such Transactions as may be permitted by Us from time to time, commencing upon the day this Agreement is accepted by You and Your request for The Services is approved by Us. You may authorize the use of The Services for a Non Signer to access the Account and to start such Transactions as may be permitted by Us from time to time. We may, from time to time, add to or delete from the types of use permitted and services offered.

      In connection with The Services, You agree, and shall ensure that each Signing Officer agrees, to provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about You, the Account, and any External Account when required by Us. Further, You agree, and shall ensure that each Signing Officer agrees, to notify Us of any changes to such information within a reasonable period of time.

    5. DELEGATES AND NON SIGNERS - In this Agreement, Your responsibilities to Us are to be performed by a Signing Officer and his or her Delegates. You authorize each Signing Officer to use The Services and to appoint Delegates. A Signing Officer can authorize a person to act as his or her Delegate on the Account through The Services only. If appointed, the Delegate must be specifically authorized as either a Read Only Delegate or an Initiator Delegate.

      You acknowledge that We disclaim liability and are not responsible for the actions or omissions of Signing Officers, Non Signers, and Delegates, or for determining the adequacy of their authority, and that it is Your exclusive obligation to verify the identity of each such person at the time of his or her appointment by You.

      Further, You acknowledge that We disclaim liability and are not responsible to maintain in Our records any identifying information on each Delegate and that You are solely responsible for ensuring that each Delegate has access to the Account.

      You acknowledge that Delegates and Non Signers have no rights to authorize Transactions on the Account.

      A Delegate or a Non Signer can request through The Services that We cease printing or mailing statements of the Account to You.

      All Transactions started by an Initiator Delegate must have the authorization of a Signing Officer before being completed.

      All Transactions started by a Non Signer must have the authorization of a Signing Officer before being completed.

      At Our request, You must provide full and current particulars of the identities of any and all Signing Officers, Delegates, and Non Signers who have any rights of access to any Accounts pursuant to The Services.

    6. SERVICE CHARGES AND FEES - You will pay fees incurred on the Account, including, without limitation, fees imposed by a Third Party through Your initiation of a Transaction. You will pay the service charges that We establish from time to time for The Services, including, without limitation, service charges for providing records regarding You that We are legally required to provide. You acknowledge receipt of a schedule of Our charges for The Services in effect at the time of acceptance of this Agreement. We may, from time to time, increase or decrease the service charges for The Services and provide notice of such changes by sending a notice to Your Contact Info, by posting notice at Our premises or on the Financial Institution's website, by personal delivery, or by any other means We, acting reasonably, consider appropriate to bring the change to Your attention. Current service charges for The Services may be obtained by contacting Us or through the Financial Institution's website. You are responsible for determining the then current service charges for The Services You request, in advance of using The Services. By requesting The Services, You acknowledge Your agreement to pay service charges for The Services as requested as then in effect. The Financial Institution can deduct such obligations from Your Account (or other Accounts belonging to You with Us), when The Services are requested or performed. New or amended service charges and fees will become effective on the stated effective date following publication, when The Services are requested or performed, or when incurred, and in any event, no later than 30 days after publication by Us.

    7. AVAILABILITY OF THE SERVICES - You acknowledge that the availability of The Services depends on telecommunications systems, computer hardware and software, and other equipment, including equipment belonging to the Financial Institution, Central 1, and Third Parties and that there is no guarantee or obligation to provide continuous or uninterrupted service. The Financial Institution and Central 1 are not liable for any cost, loss, damage, injury, inconvenience, or delay of any nature or kind whatsoever, whether direct, indirect, special, or consequential, that You may suffer in any way arising from non-continuous or interrupted service or the Financial Institution or Central 1 providing or failing to provide The Services, or from the malfunction or failure of telecommunication systems, computer hardware or software, or other equipment, or other technical malfunctions or disturbances for any reason whatsoever, nor are the Financial Institution or Central 1 liable for any lost, incomplete, illegible, misdirected, intercepted, or stolen messages, or failed, incomplete, garbled, or delayed transmissions, or online failures (collectively, "Interruption Claims"), even if You have advised Us of such consequences. You release and agree to hold Us and Central 1 harmless from any and all Interruption Claims.

    8. AUTHORIZATION FOR TRANSACTIONS - You acknowledge and agree that:

      1. using the PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode to authorize a Transaction constitutes authorization of that Transaction in the same manner as if authorization was given by You or a Signing Officer in person or as otherwise contemplated or permitted by the Account Agreement;

      2. You will be bound by each such Transaction; and

      3. once the PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode has been used to authorize a Transaction, the Transaction cannot be revoked or countermanded.

      You irrevocably authorize and direct Us to debit or credit, as the case may be, the amount of any Transaction to the Account, together with any service charges or fees, authorized using the PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode, in person by You or a Signing Officer, or as otherwise contemplated or permitted by the Account Agreement, in accordance with the normal practices of the Financial Institution, which may be amended from time to time without notice.

    9. CONFIDENTIALITY - We can assign or require You or a Signing Officer to select and use a PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode in connection with this Agreement.

      You agree, and shall ensure that each Signing Officer agrees, to keep the PIW confidential and will only reveal it to authorized Financial Institution agents or officers when required by Us. You agree, and shall ensure that each Signing Officer agrees, not to record the PIW in any format or medium. You and each Signing Officer can change the PIW at any time. You agree, and shall ensure that each Signing Officer agrees, to change the PIW if and when required by Us. You acknowledge, and shall ensure that each Signing Officer acknowledges, that the PIW must be changed if there is a change in the persons authorized to provide Remote Instructions on the Account.

      You agree, and shall ensure that each Delegate, Non Signer, and Signing Officer agrees, to keep the PAC, PIN, and Passcode confidential. You agree, and shall ensure that each Delegate, Non Signer, and Signing Officer agrees, not to record the PAC, PIN, and Passcode in any format or medium. You and each Delegate, Non Signer and Signing Officer may change the PAC, PIN, and Passcode at any time. You agree, and shall ensure that each Delegate, Non Signer, and Signing Officer agrees, to change the PAC, PIN, and Passcode if and when required by Us. You acknowledge, and shall ensure that each Delegate, Non Signer and Signing Officer acknowledges, that the PAC, PIN, and Passcode must be changed if there is a change in the persons authorized to access the Account.

      You are responsible for all use of the PAC, PIW, PIN, and Passcode and for all Transactions on the Account authorized using The Services.

      You acknowledge that We may, from time to time, implement additional security measures, and You will comply, and shall ensure that each Delegate, Non Signer and Signing Officer complies, with all instructions and procedures issued by Us in respect of such security measures. You are aware, and shall ensure that each Delegate, Non Signer, and Signing Officer is aware, of the risks of unsolicited email, telephone calls, and SMS text message transmissions from persons purporting to be representatives of the Financial Institution. You agree, and shall ensure that each Delegate, Non Signer, and Signing Officer agrees, not to respond to such unsolicited communications and will only initiate communications with the Financial Institution either through Our banking website or banking app or through Our published contact information as shown on the Financial Institution's website.

      If You or a Signing Officer discloses the PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode to a Third Party, and if We become aware of such disclosure, We may, in Our sole discretion, waive the confidentiality requirements described in this article 9, Confidentiality, but only if such disclosure is to a reputable personal financial management service similar to that described in article 31, Personal Financial Management. Notwithstanding any such waiver, You acknowledge and agree, and shall ensure that each Signing Officer acknowledges and agrees, that You remain responsible for all use of the PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode by the Third Party.

      You will not select an obvious combination of digits for Your PIN (e.g., address, card number, account number, telephone number, birth date or Social Insurance Number). You understand that the Financial Institution has only disclosed the PIN to You and to no one else, and You will never, under any circumstances, disclose the PIN to any other person. You will not use Your PIN as Your Mobile Device or online access code. You will not keep a written record of the PIN, unless the written record is NOT carried next to the Debit Card and NOT stored on your Mobile Device and is in a form indecipherable to others. You will ensure that the entry of the PIN is always screened with a hand or body.

      You must treat the Passcode used to authorize any Transactions within Mobile Payment Services for Small Business with the same standard of care and confidentiality as Your PIN.

    10. REMOTE INSTRUCTIONS - You or a Signing Officer may provide Remote Instructions to any branch of the Financial Institution as permitted by Us, online through the Direct Services for Small Business web portal, or through Our telephone banking service, if any. The Remote Instructions may concern the Account maintained at that branch, or concern other Transactions and arrangements conducted at or with that branch.

      The Financial Institution may, but will not be obliged to, act on Remote Instructions received in Your name along with any requisite PAC and PIW, if any, to the same extent as if the Remote Instructions were written instructions delivered to Us by mail and signed by a Signing Officer authorized to operate the Account. Any such Remote Instructions are deemed genuine.

      The Financial Institution may, in its sole discretion, acting reasonably, delay acting on or refuse to act on any Remote Instruction.

      A Remote Instruction is deemed received by Us only when actually received and brought to the attention of an authorized officer, agent or processor of the Financial Institution capable of acting upon and implementing the Remote Instruction.

      Remote Instructions can be transmitted to the Financial Institution at the telephone or fax number or email address provided by Us, or at such other telephone or fax number or email address as We may advise You by notice in writing, or online through the Direct Services for Small Business web portal. Any one Signing Officer may act alone and provide Remote Instructions to the Financial Institution, even if two or more signatures are otherwise required to operate the Account. The Financial Institution, acting reasonably, is entitled to assume that any person identifying himself or herself as a Signing Officer is in fact a Signing Officer, and can rely upon such, and We may act on the Remote Instructions provided by any such person. All Remote Instructions given to the Financial Institution in Your name will bind You.

    11. VERIFICATION AND ACCEPTANCE OF TRANSACTIONS BY US - All Transactions are subject to verification and acceptance by Us and, if not accepted, or if accepted but subsequently determined to be in error or otherwise improper or unauthorized, the Financial Institution may, but is not obliged to, reverse them from the Account. Verification may take place at a date later than the date You authorized the Transaction, which may affect the Transaction date. Notwithstanding any other provision herein, if at any time the Financial Institution, acting reasonably, ever determines that a credit made to or traced to the Account was made in error or based upon a mistake of fact, or induced through or in any way tainted by fraud or unlawful conduct, We may place a hold on the credit and reverse the credit and any applicable interest.

    12. FINANCIAL INSTITUTION RECORDS - Whether a Transaction Record is issued or not, it is Your responsibility to verify that all Transactions have been properly executed by checking the periodic statement or passbook entries itemizing Transactions and reviewing Your Transaction Records. In the absence of evidence to the contrary, Our records are conclusive for all purposes, including litigation, in respect of any instructions given by You to Us through the use of the Debit Card; the contents of any envelope deposited into Your Account at an ATM; the making of a withdrawal, deposit or transfer through the use of the Debit Card; and any other matter or thing relating to the state of accounts between You and Us. Our records of all Transactions will be deemed to be correct and will be conclusive and binding on You. All Transactions will appear on the regular statements of account for the Account.

      If You believe or suspect that the records of the Financial Institution contain an error or omission, or reflect unauthorized Account activity, You must give immediate written notice to Us, and in any event, must do so within the shorter of the time provided in the Account Agreement or 45 days from the date of the Transaction.

      A copy of any fax or email message or other Remote Instructions or the Financial Institution's notes of any Remote Instructions given by telephone may be entered into evidence in any court proceedings as if it were an original document signed by or on behalf of You. You will not object to the admission of the Financial Institution's or Central 1's records as evidence in any legal proceeding on the grounds that such records are not originals, are not in writing, are hearsay, or are documents containing information extracted from a computer, and all such records will be conclusive evidence of the Remote Instructions in the absence of documentary recorded evidence to the contrary.

    13. LIABILITY FOR ERRORS AND OMISSIONS - If the Financial Institution makes an error or omission in recording or processing any Transaction, the Financial Institution is only liable for the amount of the error or omission if You have not caused or contributed to the error or omission in any way, have complied with this Agreement and the Account Agreement, and have given written notice to Us within the time provided in the Account Agreement, and to the extent the liability is not otherwise excluded by this Agreement or the Account Agreement.

      If You have given such notice, the Financial Institution's maximum liability is limited to the amount of the error or omission. In no event will We be liable for any delay, inconvenience, cost, loss, or damage (whether direct, indirect, special, exemplary, or consequential) whatsoever caused by, or arising from, any such error or omission.

    14. EXCLUSION OF FINANCIAL INSTITUTION RESPONSIBILITY - We are not responsible for any loss or damage suffered or incurred by You except to the extent caused by the gross negligence or intentional or wilful misconduct of the Financial Institution, and in any such case We will not be liable for any indirect, special, consequential, or exemplary damages (including, but not limited to, loss of profits) regardless of the cause of action and even if We have been advised of the possibility of such damages. In no event will We be liable for any cost, loss, or damage (whether direct, indirect, special, or consequential) suffered by You that is caused by:

      1. the actions of, or any failure to act by, You, a Signing Officer, or any Third Party (and no Third Party will be considered to be acting as an agent for Us unless expressly authorized to do so for that purpose);

      2. the inaccuracies in, or inadequacies of, any information furnished by You to Us, including, but not limited to any failed, duplicative, or erroneous transmission of Remote Instructions;

      3. the failure by Us to perform or fulfill any of Our obligations to You due to any cause beyond Our control; or

      4. forged, unauthorized, or fraudulent use of services, or forged, unauthorized, or fraudulent instructions or Instruments, or material alteration to an instruction, including Remote Instructions.

    15. RISKS AND DUTIES - Except for loss caused exclusively by Our gross negligence or intentional or wilful misconduct, and subject to the limitations of liability in this Agreement or the Account Agreement, You assume all risk of loss due to the use of The Services, including, without limitation, the risk of Third Party fraud and internal fraud of the Depositor. You further agree that You will notify Us immediately:

      1. of any suspected or actual misuse or unauthorized use of the PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode;

      2. if the PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode becomes known to anyone other than You; or

      3. if You receive Notification of any Transaction affecting the Account that alerts You of Account activity that was not authorized by You.

      You will change the PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode if either of the notification requirements above in a) or b) arises.

      The notification requirement above in b) does not apply if You have or a Signing Officer has disclosed the PAC to a Third Party for a personal financial management service similar to that described in article 31, Personal Financial Management, and You are otherwise unaware of suspected or actual misuse or unauthorized use or activity.

      You acknowledge that You are responsible for all use made of the PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode and that We are not liable for Your failure to comply with any part of this Agreement. You are liable for all authorized and unauthorized use, including all Transactions. You are also liable for all fraudulent or worthless deposits made into the Account. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, You expressly acknowledge and agree that You shall be bound by and liable for any use of the PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode by a member of Your or a Signing Officer's, Delegate's, or Non Signer's household whether authorized by You or not.

      You acknowledge that You are liable for all transfers authorized by any Signing Officer to linked accounts. You bear all risk for all such Transactions.

      Where You know of facts that give rise or ought to give rise to suspicion that any Transactions, instructions in respect of the Account, or Instruments deposited to the Account are fraudulent, unauthorized, counterfeit, or induced through or in any way tainted by fraud or unlawful conduct, or otherwise likely to be returned to Us or found invalid for any reason, You have a duty to make reasonable inquiries of proper parties into such Transactions, instructions, or Instruments, as the case may be, to determine whether they are valid authorized Transactions, instructions, or Instruments, as the case may be, before negotiating or, alternatively, accessing any funds derived from such Transactions, instructions, or Instruments, and to disclose to the Financial Institution Your suspicion and the facts upon which Your suspicion is based ("Suspicious Circumstances").

      The Financial Institution may, in its sole discretion, investigate any Suspicious Circumstances disclosed by You, but We do not owe You any obligation to undertake Our own investigation of Suspicious Circumstances. The Financial Institution may place a hold on all or some of Your Accounts pending investigation of any improper use of any Account. Any hold imposed by Us pursuant to any of the terms of this Agreement, or investigation undertaken by Us, is imposed or undertaken by Us at Our sole discretion and for the Financial Institution's sole benefit.

      Release of a hold by Us is not a confirmation that a Transaction, instruction, or Instrument is in fact good or cleared or not subject to chargeback and may not be relied upon as such by You. If to Our satisfaction any improper use is established, We can withdraw or suspend The Services and operation of the Account without notice.

    16. RIGHTS FOR INNOCENT BREACH - Subject to the provisions of this Agreement and the Account Agreement:

      1. if You and each Signing Officer did not reveal the PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode to any other person, other than authorized Financial Institution agents or officers when required by Us, or write it down or otherwise record it, and changed the PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode when required by this Agreement, You will not be liable for any unauthorized use that occurs after We have received written notice from You that the PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode may have become known to someone other than You or the Signing Officers. We will not be considered to have received written notice until the Financial Institution gives You written acknowledgement of receipt of such notice;

      2. if You and each of the Delegates, Non Signers and Signing Officers did not reveal the PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode to any other person, other than authorized Financial Institution agents or officers when required by Us, or write it down or otherwise record it, and changed the PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode when required by this Agreement, You shall not be liable for any unauthorized use that occurs after We have received written notice from You that the PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode may have become known to someone other than You or a Delegate, Non Signer, or Signing Officer. We shall not be considered to have received written notice until We give You written acknowledgement of receipt of such notice; and

      3. We will not otherwise be liable for any damages or other liabilities that You may incur by reason of the Financial Institution acting, or failing to act, on Remote Instructions given in Your name whether or not You or a Signing Officer actually gave the Remote Instructions. We will not be liable for any damages or other liabilities that You may incur by reason of the Financial Institution acting, or failing to act, on no statement requests made by You or a Non Signer through Direct Services for Small Business whether or not You, the Delegate, or the Non Signer actually gave the Remote Instructions.

    17. DISPUTE RESOLUTION - PROCEDURES FOR ADDRESSING UNAUTHORIZED TRANSACTIONS AND OTHER TRANSACTION PROBLEMS - In the event of a problem with a Transaction or an unauthorized Transaction in relation to The Services, You will report the issue immediately to the Financial Institution. We will investigate and respond to the issue in a timely way. We will not unreasonably restrict You from the use of the Account subject to dispute, as long as it is reasonably evident that You or a Signing Officer did not cause or contribute to the problem or unauthorized Transaction, have fully cooperated with the investigation, and have complied with this Agreement and the Account Agreement. We will respond to reports of a problem or unauthorized Transaction within 10 business days and will, within a reasonable period of time thereafter, indicate what reimbursement, if any, will be made for any loss incurred by You. Reimbursement will be made for losses from a problem or unauthorized Transaction in this time frame provided that You have complied with this Agreement and the Account Agreement and on the balance of probabilities it is shown that You and each Signing Officer took all reasonable and required steps to:

      1. protect the confidentiality of the PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode as required by this Agreement and the Account Agreement;

      2. use security safeguards to protect against and detect loss, theft, and unauthorized access as required by this Agreement and the Account Agreement; and

      3. act immediately, upon receiving a Notification of, or becoming aware of, an unauthorized Transaction, to mitigate against further loss and report the issue to the Financial Institution.

    18. ACCESS TERMINAL/MOBILE DEVICE SECURITY - If The Services are made available through the Internet or a telephone service provider, You acknowledge that, although the Financial Institution uses security safeguards to protect against loss, theft, and unauthorized access, because of the nature of data transmission, security is not guaranteed and information is transmitted at Your risk. You acknowledge and shall ensure that any private Access Terminal used by You to access The Services is auto-locked by a password or biometric to prevent unauthorized use of that Access Terminal, has a current anti-Contaminant program and a firewall, and that each Delegate, Non Signer, and Signing Officer acknowledges that it is Your personal responsibility to reduce the risk of Contaminants or online attacks and to comply with this provision. You further acknowledge, and shall ensure that each Delegate, Non Signer, and Signing Officer acknowledges, that to reduce the risk of unauthorized access to the Account through the Access Terminal, You will sign out of The Services and, where applicable, close the browser or banking app when finished using it. You further acknowledge, and shall ensure that each Delegate, Non Signer, and Signing Officer acknowledges, that using public or shared computers and certain other Access Terminals, or through an open WiFi or shared Bluetooth portal, to access The Services increases the risk of unauthorized access to the Account, and will take all reasonable precautions to avoid such use or inadvertent disclosure of the PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode.

    19. FRAUD PREVENTION AND DETECTION - You agree to maintain appropriate security controls and procedures to prevent and detect thefts of Instruments, or losses due to fraud or forgery involving Instruments, or fraudulent or unauthorized Transactions.

      You agree to diligently supervise and monitor the conduct and work of all agents and employees having any role in the preparation of Your Instruments or conduct of Transactions, Your reconciliation of the statement of account for the Account, or other banking functions.

    20. LINKS - If The Services are made available through the Internet, the Financial Institution's website may provide links to other websites, including those of Third Parties who may also provide services to You. You acknowledge that all those other websites and Third Party services are independent from the Financial Institution's and may be subject to separate agreements that govern their use. The Financial Institution and Central 1 have no liability for those other websites or their contents or the use of Third Party services. Links are provided for convenience only, and You assume all risk resulting from accessing or using such other websites or Third Party services.

    21. THIRD PARTY SERVICES - The Financial Institution and Central 1 may, from time to time, make services provided by Third Parties available through Direct Services for Small Business or the Financial Institution's website. You acknowledge and agree, and shall ensure that each Signing Officer acknowledges and agrees, that:

      1. the Financial Institution and Central 1 make the services of Third Parties available through Direct Services for Small Business or Our website for Your convenience. The services are provided by the Third Party and not Us or Central 1. Your relationship with the Third Party shall be a separate relationship, independent of the relationship between You, Us, and Central 1, and such a relationship is outside the control of the Financial Institution and Central 1;

      2. We and Central 1 make no representation or warranty to You with respect to any services provided by a Third Party even though those services may be accessed by You or a Signing Officer, Delegate, or Non Signer through Direct Services for Small Business or Our website;

      3. You assume all risks associated with accessing or using the services of Third Parties;

      4. We and Central 1 have no responsibility or liability to You in respect of services provided by a Third Party;

      5. any dispute that relates to services provided by a Third Party is strictly between You and the Third Party, and You will raise no defence or claim against Us and Central 1; and

      6. the Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act and Regulations may apply to the services provided by Third Parties and that the Third Parties may, from time to time, adopt policies and procedures to address the reporting, record-keeping, client identification, and ongoing monitoring requirements of that legislation.

    22. INDEMNITY - You agree to indemnify and hold Us and Our service providers and Central 1 and all of Our and Central 1's connected parties, including, without limitation, Our and Central 1's respective agents, directors, officers, employees, affiliates, and licensees (collectively, the "Indemnified Parties") harmless from and against any and all liabilities and costs, including, without limitation, reasonable legal fees and expenses incurred by the Indemnified Parties in connection with any claim or demand arising out of or connected to Your use of The Services. You must assist and cooperate as fully as reasonably required by the Indemnified Parties in the defence of any such claim or demand. The disclaimers, liability exclusions, liability limitations, and indemnity provisions in this Agreement survive indefinitely after the termination of this Agreement and apply to the extent permitted by law. Without limiting the foregoing, You will indemnify and save the Indemnified Parties harmless from and against all liability, costs, loss, expenses, and damages, including direct, indirect, and consequential, incurred by the Indemnified Parties as a result of:

      1. any of the Indemnified Parties making The Services available to You;

      2. any of the Indemnified Parties acting upon, or refusing to act upon, Remote Instructions;

      3. any of the Indemnified Parties acting upon, or refusing to act upon, no statement requests made by You and the Non Signer through Direct Services for Small Business;

      4. any Transaction that results in a negative balance in the Account; or

      5. the consequences of any Transaction authorized by You or a Signing Officer.

        This indemnity shall enure to the benefit of the Indemnified Parties and shall be binding upon You and Your successors and assigns and shall survive the termination of this Agreement for any act or omission prior to termination as gives rise to an indemnified claim, even if notice is received after termination.

    23. SERVICES ACKNOWLEDGEMENT - You acknowledge and agree that:

      1. when transfers and bill payments are authorized through Direct Services for Small Business, funds are deemed irrevocably transferred out of the Account and the Transaction cannot be revoked or countermanded by You;

      2. anyone with access to the PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode may be able to access The Services and may use the PAC, PIW, PIN, or Passcode to transfer money out of an Account, set up bill payment arrangements, make bill payments, and authorize any other Transaction;

      3. We will not be liable in any way to You or any other person for processing or accepting on the Account any Transaction that results in the transfer of money out of the Account or in the payment of bills, even if the money is used for the benefit of a person other than You, or if bills owed by a person other than You are paid;

      4. You will be liable for all Transactions conducted using The Services, including Transactions that benefit a person other than You or that result in the payment of bills owed by a person other than You; and

      5. a copy of an electronic communication is admissible in legal proceedings and constitutes the same authority as would an original document in writing.

    24. NO STATEMENT REQUEST AND ONGOING VERIFICATION OBLIGATIONS - If, at Your request (through You or a Signing Officer, Delegate or Non Signer), We agree to cease printing and mailing statements of account for the Account to You, You acknowledge and agree that:

      1. You will be responsible to obtain (whether from Us or using The Services) and review, after the end of each calendar month, a statement of the activity in the Account, and will, by no later than the end of the following calendar month (the "Notification Date"), notify Us of any errors, irregularities, omissions, or unauthorized Transactions of any type in that account record or in any Instrument or other items, or of any forgeries, fraudulent or unauthorized Transactions of any type, and any debits wrongly made to the Account;

      2. notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, after the Notification Date (except as to any errors, irregularities, omissions, or unauthorized Transactions of any type of which You have notified Us in writing on or before the Notification Date), You agree that:

        1. the amount of the balances shown on the last day of the calendar month is correct and binding on You subject to Our right to make reversals in accordance with this Agreement and the Account Agreement;

        2. all amounts charged to the Account are valid;

        3. You are not entitled to be credited with any amount not shown on the statement of account for the Account for that calendar month;

        4. You have verified the validity of any Instruments and instructions; and

        5. the use of any service shown is correct.

          You acknowledge that:

        6. notwithstanding that an Instrument may be provisionally posted to the Account, it is not considered processed until it has been honoured and irrevocably collected by Us and the time for return by any process of law has expired.

You acknowledge and agree, and shall ensure that each Signing Officer acknowledges and agrees, that use of the PFM Service and all information, products, and other content (including that of Third Parties) included in or accessible from the PFM Service is at Your or the Signing Officer's sole risk, as the case may be.

REMOTE DEPOSITS - If the Financial Institution, through Direct Services for Small Business makes the Remote Deposit Service available and You or a Signing Officer, Delegate or Non Signer use the Remote Deposit Service, You acknowledge and agree, and shall ensure that each Signing Officer, Delegate, and Non Signer agrees, that:

      1. solely for the Remote Deposit Service, the Financial Institution appoints You as its agent, to act on Our behalf in the creation and transmission of an Official Image to Us, and any other related duties that may be required by Us, all in accordance with the Rules and applicable legislation governing Instruments. In this context, transmission to and receipt by Us of the Official Image will have the same effect as if the Instrument was delivered to a branch of the Financial Institution for negotiation and clearing. You acknowledge and agree, and shall ensure that each Signing Officer and Delegate acknowledges and agrees, that You cannot further delegate this role as agent. Further, You acknowledge and agree, and shall ensure that each Signing Officer and Delegate acknowledges and agrees, that You and each Signing Officer and Delegate will be personally responsible and liable for:

        1. compliance with this Agreement,

        2. maintaining adequate security over any Access Terminal used, the location of use of the Access Terminal, and any passwords so as to prevent use by others or interception of data transmitted,

        3. ensuring that all Official Images created and transmitted are of good quality and fully and accurately capture all material details of the Eligible Bill,

        4. maintaining adequate safeguards and procedures for the preservation of originals of all Eligible Bills transmitted as Official Images, and

        5. verifying that deposits expected to be made to the Account reconcile with dates and amounts applicable to transmissions made using the Remote Deposit Service and for providing immediate notice to Us of any errors, omissions, irregularities, or concerns about suspicions of fraudulent Instruments or compromise of the security applicable to the use of the Remote Deposit Service;

      2. We may, upon receipt of what reasonably appears to qualify as an Official Image, treat such as an Official Image and, as if it were an original of an Instrument received at a branch of the Financial Institution, subject to the Account Agreement and any of Our policies governing Instruments;

      3. the creation of an Official Image will be done using a method authorized by Us, in Our sole discretion, from time to time. Further, You agree to take all proper and necessary precautions to prevent any other person from purporting to create or transmit an Official Image to the credit of Your Account;

      4. nothing in this Agreement obliges Us to accept for deposit any item whether it is or purports to be an Official Image. You shall not purport to create or transmit an Official Image of any item that does not qualify as an Eligible Bill or any item that is post-dated, stale-dated, received by You from anyone other than the drawer of that item, or that is in any way altered. If You, a Signing Officer or a Delegate has any suspicions or concerns about the authenticity, validity, negotiability, or chain of title to any item purporting to be an Eligible Bill, then You, the Signing Officer or the Delegate, as the case may be, shall not seek to use the Remote Deposit Service for negotiation or collection of that item, but You or a Signing Officer, as the case may be, will instead bring the original of that item to the counter of the branch of Account, identify the specific concerns to Us, and fully disclose all material facts known by You, the Signing Officer or the Delegate, as the case may be, relating to that item and fully cooperate with any inquiry or investigation of the concerns;

      5. under the Remote Deposit Service, Eligible Bills are restricted to those Instruments in Canadian dollars or United States dollars, drawn on a financial institution domiciled in Canada or the United States, as and if applicable, in Our sole discretion, from time to time. You shall not seek to use the Remote Deposit Service to deposit any Instrument into an Account different than the currency denominated on the Instrument. Canadian dollar Instruments shall only be deposited to a Canadian dollar Account. United States dollar Instruments shall only be deposited to a United States dollar Account. If You use the Remote Deposit Service with an Instrument that does not qualify for this Service, We, at our discretion, may refuse to negotiate that Instrument or seek to collect on the Instrument on Your behalf, as though it was a qualifying Instrument but without any liability on Our part for any delay, inability to collect or any issue arising that inhibits or prevents Us from collecting funds on the Instrument;

      6. Official Images received through the Remote Deposit Service are subject to number and dollar limits that may change from time to time without prior notice to You;

      7. any Transaction made on any day or at any time during which We are not open for business may be credited to the Account on Our next business day;

      8. once an Official Image of an Eligible Bill has been transmitted to Us through the Remote Deposit Service, no further Official Images of that Eligible Bill will be created or transmitted through the Remote Deposit Service (or any other similar service) unless You are requested to do so by Us in writing. Further, You agree to make no further use of the original of an imaged Eligible Bill, and shall safely retain possession of the original of the Eligible Bill without further negotiation, transfer, or delivery to any other person or holder. In addition to all obligations and responsibilities either set forth in this Agreement or elsewhere, You agree to indemnify and hold Us and Our service providers and Central 1 and all of their connected parties, including, without limitation, their respective agents, directors, officers, employees, affiliates, and licensees (collectively, the "Indemnified Parties") harmless from and against any and all liabilities and costs, including, without limitation, reasonable legal fees and expenses incurred by the Indemnified Parties in connection with any claim or demand arising out of or connected to Your use of the Remote Deposit Service or duplicate negotiation of items that were at any time presented as Official Images of Eligible Bills. You must assist and cooperate as fully as reasonably required by the Indemnified Parties in the defence of any such claim or demand. The disclaimers, liability exclusions, liability limitations, and indemnity provisions in this Agreement survive indefinitely after the termination of this Agreement and apply to the extent permitted by law. Without limiting the foregoing, You will indemnify and save the Indemnified Parties harmless from and against all liability, costs, loss, expenses, and damages, including direct, indirect, and consequential incurred by the Indemnified Parties as a result of any breach of this Agreement, or any claims arising from or relating to misuse of Official Images or items purporting to be Official Images, or negotiation of Eligible Bills where an Official Image has also been transmitted for collection;

      9. on transmission of an Official Image of an Eligible Bill to Us, You are responsible for immediately marking the face of the Eligible Bill with a blatant notation or mark that prevents renegotiation of the Eligible Bill and indicates that the Eligible Bill has been imaged and transmitted, taking care not to obliterate any material particulars of that Eligible Bill. (For example: This can be done by writing "void" or "paid" or placing a diagonal stroke across the face of the item with a pen or brightly coloured highlighter.) For a period of 120 days after transmission of the Official Image to Us, or such shorter period as stipulated by Us in writing, You shall retain and produce to Us immediately on written request the original of all imaged Eligible Bills. If You receive a written request to retain or produce, You shall comply with the written request, and shall, if requested, produce, by delivering to Us, the original of all specified Eligible Bills within five business days of such request. If You fail to comply with the written request made pursuant to this provision, then We can place or continue a hold on or reverse any credit made to the Account in relation to those specified Eligible Bills, even if such creates an overdraft on the Account. If no written request is received within that time, then 120 calendar days after an Official Image has been transmitted to Us through the Remote Deposit Service or such shorter period as stipulated by Us in writing, and provided that You have verified a credit to the Account that reconciles to the Official Image transmitted, You agree and shall ensure that each Signing Officer, Delegate, and Non Signer agrees, to immediately proceed with destruction of the original of the Eligible Bill. Destruction methods include shredding, pulping, burning, or any other means that ensures that the original Instrument cannot be reused;

      10. You are responsible for any and all costs associated with obtaining a replacement Instrument in the event that We request that You re-transmit an Official Image in accordance with h) above, and the original Instrument was destroyed in accordance with i) above, or otherwise lost;

      11. in Our sole discretion, electronic notices for purposes related to the Remote Deposit Service may be generated and sent to You at Your Contact Info after You use the Remote Deposit Service to transmit an Official Image, including to advise You of the receipt by Us of an Official Image. To receive such electronic notices, You must provide Your Contact Info required by Us;

      12. an electronic notice, if any, sent in connection with the Remote Deposit Service is for information purposes only and is no guarantee that the Official Image will be accepted by Us or that the Account will be credited; and

      13. We will not be liable for any cost, expense, loss, damage, or inconvenience of any nature or kind whatsoever arising as a result of use of the Remote Deposit Service, including, but not limited to, a delay in processing a Transaction or if We require You to obtain another Instrument.

    33. ONLINE PAYMENT - If the Financial Institution, through The Services, makes the Online Payment Service available and You authorize or a Signing Officer authorizes the use of the Online Payment Service, You acknowledge and agree, and shall ensure that each Signing Officer agrees, that:

      1. if You have previously provided notice to Us that Transactions through The Services require the authorization of more than one Signing Officer, We will not allow You to use the Online Payment Service. For further certainty, You or any Signing Officer, acting alone, can authorize a Transaction through the Online Payment Service;

      2. the Online Payment Service is only available in Canadian dollars from Participating Merchants;

      3. Transactions for the Online Payment Service must be initiated by You or a Signing Officer through the appropriate online payment option available on the website of a Participating Merchant. For further certainty, an Initiator Delegate, Read Only Delegate, or Non Signer cannot use the Online Payment Service;

      4. as soon as You or a Signing Officer authorizes a Transaction through the Online Payment Service, and provided that there are available funds or credit, the amount of the Transaction will be withdrawn from the Account or a hold will be placed in the amount of the Transaction. We will hold the Transaction amount until the Participating Merchant successfully claims the Transaction or 30 minutes have elapsed, whichever comes first. We have no obligation to and will not pay interest on the Transaction amount. To the extent permitted at law, We are deemed to have a security interest in the Transaction amount from the time the Account is held until the Participating Merchant successfully claims the Transaction or the hold is removed;

      5. Transactions sent and received through the Online Payment Service are subject to number and dollar limits that may change from time to time without prior notice to You;

      6. We will not be responsible or liable for any losses or damages incurred as a result of funds held and limits set by Us, Acxsys Corporation, a Participating Merchant, or a Participating Financial Institution;

      7. the Financial Institution, the Participating Financial Institution, and Central 1 are entitled to pay the Transaction amount to anyone who claims to be the Participating Merchant and provides the payment authorization details within 30 minutes of the Transaction being authorized by You or a Signing Officer;

      8. We will not be liable for losses or damages incurred as a result of a person other than the intended Participating Merchant receiving the Transaction amount;

      9. if the Participating Merchant cancels, declines, or fails to claim a Transaction that You or a Signing Officer authorized, the Transaction amount will be reinstated after 30 minutes have elapsed since the Transaction was authorized. However, We cannot guarantee the date or time that the hold on the Transaction amount will be removed;

      10. We, Central 1, or Acxsys Corporation may cancel a Transaction once it is authorized but before payment authorization details are sent to the Participating Merchant, if there is reason to believe that a mistake has occurred or that the Transaction is a product of unlawful or fraudulent activity;

      11. once payment authorization details have been sent to the Participating Merchant, a Transaction cannot be cancelled. Payment authorization details are sent immediately after a Transaction is authorized by You or a Signing Officer;

      12. all disputes, including requests for refunds, will be handled directly between You or a Signing Officer and the Participating Merchant without Our participation or the participation of any other party. A refund, if any, may be received through Direct Services and Central 1 for credit to the Account, or through such other method the Participating Merchant deems appropriate;

      13. We may refuse, in Our sole discretion, to provide the Online Payment Service for You;

      14. in Our sole discretion, electronic Notifications for purposes related to the Online Payment Service may be generated and sent to You at Your Contact Info after You or a Signing Officer authorizes a Transaction, including to advise You that the Account has been debited. To receive an electronic Notification, You must provide Your Contact Info required by Us;

      15. an electronic Notification, if any, sent in connection with the Online Payment Service is for information purposes only and is no guarantee that the Participating Merchant will successfully claim the Transaction or that You have successfully purchased the product or service from the Participating Merchant; and

      16. We will not be liable for any cost, expense, loss, damage, or inconvenience of any nature or kind whatsoever arising as a result of using the Online Payment Services, including, but not limited to, a delay in processing a Transaction or a Participating Merchant failing to claim a Transaction.

    34. INVOICING SERVICES - If the Financial Institution through Direct Services for Small Business makes Invoicing Services available and the Depositor uses the Invoicing Services:

      1. the Depositor consents to the Financial Institution disclosing to Central 1 Depositor-specific data relating to the Depositor's use of the Invoicing Services, including data about the Depositor's customers and the timeliness of their payments;

      2. the Depositor acknowledges that the consents contained in a) above are requirements of the Invoicing Services and that if such consents are withdrawn, the Depositor's participation in the Invoicing Services may be suspended or terminated;

      3. the Depositor is solely responsible for all data and all documents it creates using the Invoicing Services, including the accuracy of data relating to each of the Depositor's customers, and the accuracy of invoices it sends to its customers;

      4. the Depositor agrees that the Financial Institution, although it has no obligation to do so, has the absolute discretion to remove, screen or edit without notice any invoice posted or stored using the Invoicing Services, and the Financial Institution may do this at any time if it deems an invoice or the Depositor's business related to the invoice, to be unlawful or inappropriate;

      5. the Depositor is solely responsible for maintaining copies of its invoices;

      6. the Depositor may only use the Invoicing Services for the intended purpose of facilitating the generation, delivery and tracking of invoices; and

      7. the Depositor agrees that the Invoicing Services are provided on an "as is" basis without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, and the Financial Institution expressly disclaims all other warranties, including implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement. The Financial Institution does not represent or warrant that:

        1. the Invoicing Services will be reliable, uninterrupted, timely, secure or error-free;

        2. the Invoicing Services will meet the Depositor's or Signing Officer's requirements; or

        3. any errors in the Invoicing Services technology will be corrected.

    35. VIEWING CHEQUE IMAGING - We may, in connection with Direct Services for Small Business, permit the Delegate, Non Signer, or Signing Officer to view and print images of documents. You acknowledge and agree that such images are made available by Us as a service to You and the provision of such images does not in any way oblige Us to permit the Delegate, Non Signer, and Signing Officer to view and print images of documents.

    36. VIEWING DOCUMENTS - We may, in connection with Direct Services for Small Business, permit the Delegate, Non Signer, or Signing Officer to view and print images of documents. You acknowledge and agree that such images are made available by Us as a service to You and the provision of such images does not in any way oblige Us to permit the Delegate, Non Signer, and Signing Officer to view and print images of documents.

    37. MOBILE PAYMENT SERVICES FOR SMALL BUSINESS - The Financial Institution may, in connection with Mobile Payment Services for Small Business, permit You to perform electronic payments at a POS or ATM using a Mobile Device in conjunction with a Debit Card and PIN, or a virtual Debit Card and Passcode.

    38. NATURE AND PURPOSE OF THE DEBIT CARD - You will use the Debit Card only for the purpose of obtaining services as agreed upon between You and Us. On 30 days' written notice, We may add or remove from the types of uses that are permitted. The issuance of the Debit Card does not amount to a representation or a warranty that any particular type of service is available or shall be available at any time in the future. This Agreement, and the fact that You have the use of the Debit Card, does not give You any credit privileges or any entitlement to overdraw Your Account, except as may be provided by separate agreement with Us.

    39. WITHDRAWALS AND DEPOSITS - Unless You have made other arrangements with Us, amounts credited to Your Account as a result of deposits using the Debit Card will not be available for withdrawal until the deposits are verified and negotiable items such as cheques are paid. Withdrawals or transfers effected by the use of the Debit Card will be debited to Your Account at the time they are made. You will not deposit any coins or worthless, counterfeit or fraudulent items to Your Account, into any ATM, or using Your Mobile Device, and will pay to Us any damages, costs or losses suffered by Us as a result of any such deposit.

    40. LIABILITY - CONSEQUENCES OF BREACH OF DEBIT CARD SECURITY - Once You have first used the Debit Card, or virtual Debit Card as part of the Mobile Payment Services for Small Business, You will be liable for all authorized and unauthorized uses of the Debit Card by any person up to Your established daily withdrawal limit (including funds accessible through a line of credit or overdraft privilege), for each day through until the expiry or cancellation of the Debit Card. However, in the event of alteration of Your Account balance due to technical problems, card issuer errors and system malfunctions, You will be liable only to the extent of any benefit You have received, and will be entitled to recover from Central 1 any direct losses You may have suffered. The Financial Institution will have the discretion to relieve You from liability for unauthorized use of Your Debit Card either through no fault of Your own or in a case where You have inadvertently contributed to the unauthorized use of Your Debit Card. You will co-operate in any investigation. We will not be liable to You for any action or failure to act of a Merchant or refusal by a Merchant to honour the Debit Card, whether or not such failure or refusal is the result of any error or malfunction of a device used to effect or authorize the use of the Debit Card for a POS Transaction. You understand that You must not use Your Debit Card, for any unlawful purpose, including the purchase of goods and services prohibited by local law applicable in Your jurisdiction.

    41. LOST OR STOLEN DEBIT CARD - COMPROMISE OF PIN OR MOBILE DEVICE - If You become aware that the Debit Card or Your Mobile Device used in conjunction with Mobile Payment Services for Small Business is lost or stolen, or that the PIN or Passcode has been made accessible to another person, or if any other person's biometric gets stored on Your Mobile Device, You will notify Us or Our agent immediately, whereupon the Debit Card will be cancelled, Mobile Payment Services for Small Business suspended or the PIN or Passcode changed. The instant such notice is actually received by Us or when We are satisfied that You became the victim of fraud, theft, or coercion by trickery, force or intimidation, Your liability for further use of the Debit Card or Mobile Payment Services for Small Business will terminate, and You will be entitled to recover from Us any subsequent losses suffered by You through the use of the Debit Card or Mobile Payment Services for Small Business.

    42. PROCEDURES FOR ADDRESSING UNAUTHORIZED TRANSACTIONS AND OTHER TRANSACTION PROBLEMS - In the event of a problem with a Debit Card Transaction, or unauthorized Debit Card Transaction, other than a matter related to goods or services provided by Merchants, You will report the issue promptly to Us and We will investigate and respond to the issue on a timely basis. We will not unreasonably restrict You from the use of any funds subject to dispute, provided that it is reasonably evident that You did not contribute to the problem or unauthorized Transaction. We will respond to Your report of a problem or unauthorized Transaction within 10 business days and will indicate what reimbursement, if any, will be made for any loss incurred by You. Reimbursement will be made for losses from a problem or unauthorized use in this time frame provided that on the balance of probabilities it is shown that You did not knowingly contribute to the problem or unauthorized Transaction and that You took reasonable steps to protect the confidentiality of Your PIN or Passcode. An extension of the 10 day limit may be necessary if We require You to provide a written statement or affidavit to aid Our investigation.

    43. DISPUTE RESOLUTION - If You are not satisfied with Our response, We will provide you, upon request, a written account of Our investigation and the reasons for Our findings. If You are still not satisfied, the issue will be referred to either a dispute resolution service or external mediator, as agreed between You and Us. Neither We nor You will have the right to start court action until 30 days have passed since the issue was first raised with Us. Any dispute related to goods or services supplied in a POS Transaction is strictly between You and the Merchant, and You will raise no defense or claim against Us.

    44. FEES - You acknowledge having been advised of, and will pay, the applicable fees now in effect for services available under this Agreement. New or amended fees for Mobile Payment Services for Small Business will only become effective 30 days after publication by Us.

    45. FOREIGN CURRENCY TRANSACTION - If You provide Instructions to conduct a Transaction that is denominated in a currency other than the currency of Your Account, and We accept the Instructions or Transaction, a conversion of currency is required. When a conversion of currency is made We may act as principal with You in converting the currency at rates established or determined by Us, affiliated parties, or through parties with whom We contract for foreign exchange services. In addition to applicable service charges, We and Our affiliates and contractors may earn revenue, commissions, or fees on currency conversions. You agree that such revenue, commissions or fees may be included in and charged as part of the exchange rate charged to You. The cost of currency conversion may not be known to You or precisely determinable in advance or until the amount of the Transaction is charged to Your Account. If currency conversions on this basis are not acceptable to You, You agree that You will not transact in foreign currency on Your Account, including withdrawing foreign currency from ATMs, POS Transactions in foreign currency, by use of Direct Services or Mobile Payment Services for Small Business or delivering any Instrument or processing any Transaction to Us for deposit in a currency other than the currency of Your Account. We agree to convert currency at commercially reasonable rates, including revenue, commissions, and fees charged in respect of the conversion.

      When You purchase foreign currency from Us, in branch, the rate of exchange We charge You and any service charges You must pay will be disclosed or, alternatively, made available to You on request, at the time of the Transaction.

      If You deposit Instruments or process a Transaction denominated in a currency other than the currency of Your Account, and We accept the Instrument or Transaction for deposit, You agree that We may convert the amount of the Instrument or Transaction to the currency of the Account using Our sell rate for the currency of the Instrument or Transaction in effect at the time the conversion is processed. If We have not established a sell rate for the currency of the Instrument or Transaction in the currency of Your Account, You agree that We may:

      1. convert the funds for provisional credit to the currency of the Account using a commercially reasonable rate of exchange available from Third Parties to purchase the currency of the Account using the currency of the Instrument accepted for deposit, or to purchase a currency for which We have a sell rate and then to convert that amount to the currency of the Account at Our sell rate for that currency; and

      2. for such Transactions, charge You a conversion fee, up to a maximum of 5% of the value of the Transaction, in addition to any other service charges You must pay.

      You also agree that if any Instrument or Transaction in a currency other than the currency of Your Account is accepted for deposit, such deposit is provisional and subject to reversal. If any such Transaction must be reversed, the process outlined above for conversion of Your deposits, will apply to conversions undertaken for return of funds, and that You may be charged additional fees, commissions and service charges, as part of that conversion. The amount charged to Your Account for return of funds may be different than the amount of the deposit. The risk of loss on such Transactions shall be borne by You without any right of recourse against Us, and without any right to recover any fees charged to You in respect of the original deposit.

      When You conduct Transactions with a Mobile Device or at an ATM, or through a POS, in a foreign currency We receive a debit instruction initiated by You and which may be received by Us after processing through one or more international electronic networks that participate in the international payments system (the "Instruction"). The Instruction We receive may ask Us to pay a stipulated amount that may either be denominated in Canadian Dollars or in U.S. Dollars, regardless of the currency of Your Transaction with the Mobile Device, ATM or POS. The Transaction amount between You and Us will be the amount of Your Transaction, plus any fees by the owner of the ATM or POS, plus any revenue, commissions or fees of Third Parties that processed the Transaction or converted the foreign currency before it is received as a debit Instruction by Us. Foreign currency conversion completed by Third Parties occurs at rates that We do not set, and which may include revenue, commissions or fees of those Third Parties. More than one currency conversion may be completed by Third Parties before Your Instruction is received by Us. The amount ultimately charged to Your Account will at a minimum be the amount of the Instruction either in the currency of Your Account or U.S. Dollar value of the Instruction received by Us through the electronic network. If the Transaction is conducted on an Account denominated in Canadian Dollars and the Instruction is received in U.S. Dollars, the amount charged to Your Account will be the amount of the U.S. Dollar Instruction received by Us, converted to Canadian Dollars at Our sell rate for purchase of U.S. Dollars in effect at the time of the conversion. Our services charges and fees for Transactions on Your Account may be added to the Transaction in accordance with Our published service and fee brochure.

      Currency conversions will be completed when and at rates in effect when the Transaction is processed by Us which may not be the same rate in effect when We complete Your Transaction.

    46. TERMINATION OF AGREEMENT - The Financial Institution remains the owner of the Debit Card and may restrict the use of the Debit Card, or may terminate this Agreement and Your right to use the Debit Card, at any time without notice. You will return the Debit Card to Us or disable the Mobile Payment Services for Small Business on Your Mobile Device upon request.

    47. CARDHOLDER PRIVACY - You acknowledge that We have policies to protect Your privacy and that You may obtain particulars upon request. You hereby consent to the collection and use of Your personal information by Us and Our affiliates to monitor use of financial services, in order to detect fraud, develop needed products and services, and offer members needed services. However, if You have given or hereafter give express consent to the collection, use and further disclosure of Your Personal Information by the Financial Institution in form and content that is more permissive than the consent provided herein, the other form of consent shall govern our relationship. You may withdraw Your consent at any time by contacting the Financial Institution's Privacy Officer.

    48. CODE OF PRACTICE - You understand that the Financial Institution has endorsed the voluntary Canadian Code of Practice for Consumer Debit Card Services, a copy of which is available from Us on request or at www.fcac-acfc.gc.ca.

You understand that subscription to the PFM Service, whether by linking Accounts at the Financial Institution alone or with External Accounts at Third Party institutions will require that You share certain otherwise confidential and personal information to engage the PFM Service.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, this provision shall not be deemed to in any way diminish Your duties and responsibilities to personally access and review the External Accounts and to otherwise comply with the agreements in place with Third Parties holding those External Accounts, nor shall any right of access to information granted by You pursuant to this Agreement create any obligation on the part of the Financial Institution, Central 1, or the PFM Service provider to monitor or warn You of any unusual or unauthorized account activity on any Account or any External Accounts. You understand that the institutions holding Your External Accounts may prohibit disclosure of Your personal access codes, and that it is Your responsibility to confirm that Your personal access codes can be disclosed to Yodlee for the purpose of linking the External Accounts.
