  2. You must include the following information: Your name and Account number; a description of the error, loss and/or EFT that you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information; and, the dollar amount of the suspected error or unauthorized EFT.

Financial institution’s liability

If we do not complete a Transfer to or from your Account, on time or in the correct amount, according to our agreement with you when you have properly instructed us to do so, we will be liable to you for your losses or damages caused as a result. However, there are some exceptions. We will NOT be liable, for instance:

  1. If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your Account to make a transfer.
  2. If a legal order directs us to prohibit withdrawals from the Account.
  3. If your Account is closed, or if it has been frozen.
  4. If the transfer would cause your balance to go over the credit limit of an established line of credit or the credit limit for any credit arrangement set up to cover overdrafts.
  5. If you, or anyone authorized by you, commits any fraud or violates any law or regulation.
  6. If any electronic terminal, telecommunication device, or any part of the internet banking electronic fund transfer system is not working properly and you knew about the problem when you started the Transfer.
  7. If you have not properly followed the on-screen instructions for using P2P Payments.
  8. If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire, flood, interruption in telephone service or other communication lines) prevent the Transfer, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken.
  9. In addition, we will not be liable to you if you fail to correctly identify by name and e-mail address or mobile number a recipient of the transfer. We may rely upon the e-mail address or mobile number to make payment, even if it identifies a financial institution, person or account other than the party named as the intended recipient.

We do not currently charge a fee for P2P Payments. However, you will be responsible for any excess transaction fees that may apply to your Account. Standard messaging rates apply.

We will notify you of any changes, fees, or other information about P2P Payments, if required by law. Notices required to be given by us under this Agreement or by law may be sent electronically or in writing and mailed to you at the mailing address that we have on file.

You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold us and our affiliates, officers, directors, employees, P2P Payments service providers, and licensors harmless from any and all third party claims, liability, damages and/or costs (including but not limited to reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising from (a) a third party claim, dispute, action, or allegation of infringement, misuse, or misappropriation based on information, data, files, or otherwise in connection with the service; (b) your violation of any law or rights of a third party; or (c) your use, or use by a third party, of P2P Payments.
