1. What This Agreement Covers. This Agreement covers your use of City Bank’s Digital Banking Services. City Bank’s “Digital Banking Services” provide access to your deposit account(s), loan account(s), and ATM and check card information via the internet. Access for Digital Banking Services will be provided through our Website (defined below) or through software (“Mobile App”) designed for your mobile, tablet or wearable device (each, a “Mobile Device”). Our “Website” refers to all city.bank websites and all other web pages maintained by us and accessible through city.bank or through our Mobile App. It also includes any other website or web pages you can access only after you, or a person for whom you are acting as an authorized representative, enter into this Agreement as a condition to accessing the Website. It does not include any website that has its own separate agreement governing online access, or any other Third Party Website not hosted and/or maintained by City Bank.
You understand that these industry standards are dynamic and constantly developing. By consenting to the enrollment process you acknowledge and understand that there are risks to electronic delivery of account statements and notices, including but not limited to delay or failure of delivery due to technical difficulties, weather conditions, and matters beyond our reasonable control. You have considered the historical and potential future content of your account statement(s), the risk associated with electronic delivery of account statements and our security procedures, and you find that our security measures are reasonable. If in the future you conclude that our security procedures cease to be reasonable, you must terminate this Agreement immediately.
In addition, you understand and agree you are still subject to the terms and conditions of any agreement you have with any unaffiliated third-party service providers, including, but not limited to your internet service provider (e.g., AT&T, Comcast, Time Warner, etc.), mobile service provider (e.g., AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, etc.) or any third-party provider of or marketplace for the Mobile App (e.g., Apple, Inc., or Google, Inc. (Android)), and this Agreement does not amend or supersede any of those separate third-party service provider agreements.

You agree that only your mobile service provider is responsible for the performance and operation of its products and services, including your mobile device and the mobile service provider’s own network. You agree to resolve any problems with your mobile service provider without involving City Bank, Apple, Inc. or Google, Inc. (Android). You must comply with applicable third-party terms when using the Digital Banking Services (e.g., you cannot be in violation of your wireless provider agreement when using the Digital Banking Service).
3. Digital Banking Services, Transfers and Payments. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you may use the Digital Banking Service(s) we offer to you from time to time to access your demand deposit account(s), certificates of deposit and loans through the Website or Mobile App, perform authorized transactions through the Website or Mobile App, and conduct the Digital Banking Services contained in this Agreement. The available categories of eligible accounts and Digital Banking Services are described on our Website and may change from time to time, at our sole option.
The Digital Banking Services (or “Services”) include, but are not limited to, the ability for you to:
- View current balance information for your City Bank accounts
- Review transaction history for your accounts
- View branch locations
- View contact telephone numbers and additional contact details
- Receive and send electronic messages to City Bank
- Enroll in account alerts and notifications
- View rewards level and rewards status for rewards bank accounts, if applicable
- Make internal funds transfers between your City Bank accounts
- Make external finds transfers from your City Bank accounts to other bank accounts
- Turn debit card functionality on and off for fraud purposes (e.g., for lost or stolen debit cards)
Some of the above Digital Banking Services may not be available for certain accounts or customers. In some instances, balances and transaction history may only reflect activity conducted through the close of the previous Business Day. When we introduce new features or eliminate features, we will notify you through updates to our Website or Mobile App accordingly. You shall be solely responsible for acquiring and maintaining a computer or any other electronic device and equipment that can handle and access the Digital Banking Service, and for all costs associated with accessing the same through your electronic device of your own choice (e.g., personal computer or Mobile Device). City Bank reserves the right to add or remove various components of the Services in Bank’s sole discretion. We reserve the right to modify the scope and type of activities offered via the Services at any time in our sole discretion. We also reserve the right to refuse to make any transaction you request through the Services for a variety of reasons as set forth in any of the agreements listed in Section 2 governing your use of the Services.
By using the Digital Banking Services, you are providing Bank and Bank’s third-party service providers express consent to use aggregated and anonymized engagement and usage data Bank obtains from your use of the Digital Banking Services for monitoring and quality control purposes, analysis of aggregated Digital Banking Services user data, and any other purpose necessary to provide the Digital Banking Services under this Agreement.
4. Owners, Authorized Representatives and Delegates. By accessing any Digital Banking Services provided hereby, you agree that you have the right to provide us with instructions, make any decision, obtain any information or make any request associated with the Account(s) and related Digital Banking Services which are the subject hereof. You further agree that each of your authorized representatives, as designated to us in writing, will be acting as your agent and will be bound by this Agreement and any separate agreement governing the Account(s). All transactions that an authorized representative performs on an Account(s) or through the Digital Banking Services, including those you did not want or intend, are transactions authorized by you. You are solely responsible for those transactions, and we are not responsible for them.
If you make a person an authorized signer on an Account, we may in our discretion treat that authorized signer as an authorized representative for purposes of access, use and modification of the Digital Banking Services. If you notify us that an authorized representative is no longer authorized, only transactions that you did not want or intend and that the authorized representative performs after you notify us, and we have a reasonable opportunity to act on the notice, will be considered unauthorized.
For business accounts, the owner of the Account may manage the authority of your authorized representatives through the Website or the Mobile App. The owner of the Account who initially enrolls in the Digital Banking Services will be designated as the Administrator of the Account(s) and will have full access to all of the features and benefits of Digital Banking Services. We offer the ability to create multiple usernames and passwords for various persons within your organization to have access to your Account(s) through the Digital Banking Services, each with the access level you designate. In some circumstances, we also permit you to link other business accounts you own or control. Multiple usernames and linking Accounts are discussed below.
An authorized representative acting within the authority established using the Website will be called a “Delegate” throughout this Agreement. You agree that you, and not we, are responsible for supervising all of your Delegates and monitoring the actions they take on your behalf, whether or not we provide tools for managing their authority. All transactions that a Delegate performs on an account within the scope of the authority you grant through the Website, including any transactions you did not want or intend, are transactions authorized by you. You are solely responsible for those transactions, and we are not responsible for them. If you revoke or change the authority of a Delegate using the Website, only transactions that you did not want or intend and that the Delegate performs after you change their authorization, and we have a reasonable opportunity to act on that notice, will be considered unauthorized transactions. To notify us that you want to terminate a Delegate appointment you have made on the Website, you must access the Website using your username and password, select the applicable link to manage access to your accounts on the Account Services page, and follow the directions to delete the Delegate, or you must contact City Bank customer service by calling 1-800-OUR-BANK (1-800-687-2265) with your notification to remove the Delegate.
THE BANK WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY TO YOU FOR UNAUTHORIZED PAYMENTS AND TRANSFERS MADE USING THE ACCESS CODES YOU ASSIGN THAT OCCURS BEFORE YOU HAVE NOTIFIED US OF POSSIBLE UNAUTHORIZED USE AND WE HAVE HAD A REASONABLE OPPORTUNITY TO ACT ON THAT NOTICE.
For each Delegate, you may designate the activity level - Inquiry or Cash Management - for each linked account. You agree that by granting Cash Management access you are authorizing a Delegate to transfer funds, wire funds, perform stop payment requests, originate ACH transactions (only if you have signed a separate ACH Processing Agreement), perform account maintenance and view account transactions for any Account linked to the Digital Banking Services. Inquiry access allows a Delegate to transfer funds within accounts linked by the Digital Banking Services, perform stop payment requests, and view account transactions for the linked accounts.
If you have multiple businesses that you are authorized to obtain Digital Banking Services for, and want to link the accounts of the other business to the accounts covered by this Agreement, you will need to agree separately to this Agreement for each of your businesses. Upon doing so, you may link the accounts of the businesses, at your risk and that of the businesses, but not of City Bank, so that you and any Delegate of any of the businesses may use a common username and access code for the Digital Banking Services for all linked accounts. This can only be done if you are authorized to link the accounts of the different business and use all the functions of Digital Banking Services for each business. You further agree to inform the bank if the authority over any linked account of any authorized agents or employees given access to the account through Business Internet Banking Services decreases or otherwise changes in any manner. City Bank is not liable if your authority over any account decreases until you inform us of the change by notifying us at 1-800-OUR-BANK (1-800-687-2265) or at City Bank, Attn: Digital Banking, P.O. Box 5060, Lubbock, Texas 79408-5060, and only after we have had a reasonable time to act on such notification.
You are responsible for ensuring that each Delegate maintains the confidentiality of his or her username, password, or other login identification.
You agree that each Delegate will access and use each Account, and Digital Banking Services, in accordance with the authority given to the Delegate by the delegating owner. Each time the Delegate accesses, views, or transacts on an Account or through Digital Banking Services, you represent and warrant to us that the Delegate’s action is authorized by the delegating Owner. If we receive conflicting instructions, or if we believe that an Account’s security or our security may be at risk as a result of a Delegate, we may at our sole discretion terminate the Delegate’s access to the Service, an Account, or the Digital Banking Service, or prevent the individual from being a Delegate, without prior notice to you or any account Owner.
The authority of a Delegate will terminate: (a) when we are notified by an Owner through the appropriate channel that the Delegate’s authority is terminated and we have a reasonable opportunity to act on the notice, (b) when we are notified by an Owner that the Owner appointing the Delegate ceases to be an Owner on the Account and we have a reasonable opportunity to act on the notice, (c) in the case of Consumer accounts and sole-proprietor Business accounts, upon our receiving written notice of the death or incapacity of the delegating Owner from a court of competent jurisdiction or from a source that we consider official and reliable and we have a reasonable opportunity to act on the notice, or (d) at our sole discretion if an Owner or Delegate breaches any provision of this Agreement.
5. Use of Services. You agree that you will learn how to use the Digital Banking Services from the instructions contained within the Services, and you agree that you will contact us at the service contact information in Section 14 of this Agreement if you have any questions about or problems with the Services. If the Digital Banking Services are modified, you are responsible for understanding how to use any modifications. You may not copy (other than a copy for personal or business use), modify, distribute, transmit, display, perform, reproduce, transfer, resell, lease, rent, distribute access to or republish any of the contents of these Services without the prior written consent of Bank, which may be withheld in its sole discretion. Unless otherwise subject to the provisions of Regulation E for consumer customers as further described in the Deposit Agreement, Bank will not be liable to you for any losses caused by your failure to properly use the Services, your personal computer or your Mobile Device.
You agree not to use the Services in any way that would: (a) infringe any third party’s copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary right or rights of publicity or privacy; (b) be fraudulent or involve the sale of counterfeit or stolen items, including, but not limited to, use of the Service to impersonate another person or entity; (c) violate any applicable law, statute, ordinance or regulation (including, but not limited to, those governing export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, anti-discrimination, false advertising, anti-money laundering or bank secrecy); (d) be false, misleading or inaccurate; (e) create liability for us or our affiliates or service providers, or cause us to lose (in whole or in part) the services of any of our service providers; (f) be defamatory, trade libelous, unlawfully threatening or unlawfully harassing; (g) potentially be perceived as illegal, offensive or objectionable; (h) interfere with or disrupt the computer networks connection to the Service; (i) interfere with or disrupt the use of the Service by any other user; or (j) use the Service in such a manner as to gain unauthorized entry or access to the Bank’s computer systems or the computer systems of others.
6. Waiver of requirement for two or more signatures. You agree that any requirement of verifying two or more signatures on any item, such as checks, will not apply to electronic or telephone transfers, and we will have no liability when making these kinds of transfers without the requisite verification. This means that any person who is an authorized signer on your Account is authorized by you to individually make electronic or telephone transfers, even though that person’s authority to transfer or withdraw funds from your account by some other means (e.g., by check) must be exercised jointly with one or more other persons. This provision controls and takes precedence over any conflicting provision in any other agreements you have with us.
7. Accessing Accounts and Digital Services through the Website or Mobile App. You authorize City Bank to provide you (and in the case of a business account, to your authorized users and Delegates) access to your Accounts and the Digital Banking Services through the Website or Mobile App. You may access your Accounts and our Digital Banking Services through the Website or Mobile App to obtain information and perform transactions as authorized on the Website, or through the Mobile App. To access your Accounts and the Digital Banking Services through our Website or through the Mobile App you must have a username, a password and the required hardware and software as described on the Website. You must also comply with any other security procedures and policies we may establish from time to time. Your username and password for access through our Website and through the Mobile App may be different. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, you will generally be able to access your Accounts and the various Digital Banking Services through the Website or Mobile App 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. At certain times, the Digital Banking Services may not be available due to system maintenance or circumstances beyond our control.
8. Mobile Banking Equipment and Software. You must obtain the Bank’s Mobile App in the Apple or Google (Android) app stores and install it on your Mobile Device in order to become approved and use the Digital Banking Services. You must comply with the Mobile Device hardware, software, and other requirements, as well as applicable Security Procedures, as set forth in this Agreement and in any related documentation or any supplemental information and/or instructions provided by Bank.

We will not be required to reinstate or re-activate your access. Furthermore, if you close all of your Accounts and terminate your Services, or withdraw from the Services, we may suspend or terminate your access without prior notice to you.

The Services may include your name and certain information about your account, such as the last four (4) digits of your account number or specific account transaction information.

Your obligation under this paragraph shall survive termination of the Agreement.

You understand and agree these services may not be encrypted and may include personal or confidential information about you such as your account activity or the status of your account. You also understand that there may be a disruption in service when you change your communications service provider. Messages may be delayed or impacted by factor(s) pertaining to your internet service provider(s), phone carriers, or other parties. We will not be liable for losses or damages arising from any disclosure of account information to third parties, non-delivery, delayed delivery, misdirected delivery or mishandling of, or inaccurate content in, the messages sent through the Alerts and Text Services. The Text Services are only available to customers who have an eligible account with us, and you may be automatically enrolled to receive certain Alerts. While you have to have an eligible account to use the service, once it is activated, if you have other types of accounts with us, you may have access to those other accounts as well. There is no service fee for the Alerts and Text Services but you are responsible for any and all charges, including, but not limited to, fees associated with text messaging imposed by your communications service provider. Message and data rates may apply. Such charges include those from your communications service provider. Message frequency depends on user preferences.
20. Bill Pay. You may direct City Bank to make payments from your City Bank demand deposit and other eligible accounts to third parties (“payees”) whom you have selected to receive payment. You may make payments through the Service to any business, merchant, or professional that generates a bill or invoice for products or services provided to you on your behalf (“Business Payee”) or to any individuals, family, or friends for non-business purposes (“Individual Payees”). Payments may be made only to payees with a U.S. payment address. You may schedule payments to be initiated on the day that you enter the payment information, on a future date, or on the same date each month, subject to the restrictions in this Agreement. Although you can enter payment information through the Service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, payments can be “initiated” only on Business Days. Bills cannot be initiated on holidays or weekends. If a scheduled bill payment falls on a holiday or weekend, it will be paid on the Friday before the weekend, or the last working day before the holiday. The date on which a payment is “initiated” is the date on which we act on your payment instructions.
As you are initiating your payment, you will be asked whether you want your payment to be sent by electronic transmission or by check. In order to send a payment by electronic transmission, your designated payee must be on our list of businesses that are set up to accept electronic transfers. To determine whether your payee is on the list simply type in the payee name and search. All payments not made by electronic transmission are made with a check to your designated payee.
Payments are “processed” two times each Business Day: at 7:00 a.m. CST and at 2:00 p.m. CST. You have the right to stop or change any scheduled bill payment until the time it is processed. The following scenarios illustrate City Bank’s bill pay schedule:
Scenario One: Any payments entered between 7:01 AM CST and 1:59 PM CST on any Business Day can be modified or deleted any time prior to 2:00 PM CST.
Scenario Two: Any payments entered between 2:01 PM CST and 6:59 AM CST on any Business Day can be modified or deleted any time prior to 7:00 AM CST.
Stop Payments are not guaranteed. Payees may present payments to their bank before the stop payment has been properly processed. Payments that are in process CANNOT be canceled or stopped. If City Bank is successful in processing a stop payment request, please allow up to seven Business Days for the funds to be credited to your account.
Scheduling Payments: There will be a delay between the time when you initiate a payment and when the payee receives that payment. Any payments made using the Bill Pay Service require sufficient time for your payee to receive your payment and credit your account properly. Therefore, you should initiate the payment sufficiently in advance of the due date of your payment. We recommend that you initiate payments at least seven (7) full Business Days prior to the due date for payments by check and at least four (4) full Business Days for electronic payments. We will not be responsible for any fees, expenses, late charges, or losses you may incur as a consequence of late payment if you fail to properly initiate the payment sufficiently in advance of the due date of your payment.
If City Bank does not properly complete a bill payment on time or in the correct amount, we will reimburse your for any late fees or penalties you are charged up to a maximum of $25.00 per scheduled payment to a Business Payee that is not received by the scheduled payment date as a result of the failure of a Business Payee to receive a payment made through the Service. In order to be eligible for such reimbursement, you must meet the following conditions: (a) you must have properly scheduled the payment to be initiated on a date at least seven (7) Business Days prior to the bill’s actual due date if payment is being made by check and at least four (4) Business Days if by electronic payment (b) you must provide us with the correct Payee name, address, and account information, and with the correct payment amount (c) your checking account must contain sufficient funds to complete the payment (d) The late payment fee or penalty, or the method of its calculation, must be published by the payee prior to the bill’s actual due date. (e) You are an individual using Bill Pay for personal, family, or household purposes. (f) The Payee must be a Business Payee. The Bank has the right to refuse any transaction if the Bank reasonably believes such refusal is necessary for security reasons.
For business accounts signed up for the Bill Pay services, you agree that the password security described in Section 10 of this Agreement sets forth security procedures for electronic fund transfers that are commercially reasonable. For payment requests from Business accounts, which are subject to Article 4A of the Uniform Commercial Code (“UCC 4A”), we are liable only for damages required to be paid under UCC 4A. In no event will we be liable for any exemplary, special, indirect, or consequential loss, damage, costs or expense of any nature, including, without limitation, lost profits, even if we have been informed of the possibility of such damages, except as may be required by law.
At the present time, there are no service charges for City Bank’s Bill Payment Services. Please note, however, that you are responsible for all fees and charges that might otherwise apply to your City Bank accounts, such as normal account fees and service charges, non-sufficient funds or overdraft fees, etc.
21. Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) Provisions for Consumers
The provisions in this section apply only to electronic fund transfers that debit or credit a Consumer’s checking, savings or other deposit account and are subject to the Federal Reserve Board’s Regulation E (an “EFT”). All terms in this section not defined in this Agreement which are defined in Regulation E will have the meaning given in Regulation E.
Except for EFTs to or from brokerage accounts, your liability for an unauthorized EFT or a series of related unauthorized EFTs will be determined as follows:
- If you notify us within 2 Business Days after learning of the loss or theft of your password, your liability will not exceed the lesser of $50 or the amount of unauthorized EFTs that occur before notice to us.
- If you fail to notify us within 2 Business Days after learning of the loss or theft of your password, your liability will not exceed the lesser of $500 or the sum of:
- $50 or the amount of unauthorized EFTs that occur within the 2 Business Days, whichever is less; and
- the amount of unauthorized EFTs that occur after the close of 2 Business Days and before notice to us, provided we establish that these EFTs would not have occurred had you notified us within that 2-day period.
You must report an unauthorized EFT that appears on a periodic statement within 60 days of our transmittal of the statement to avoid liability for subsequent transfers. If you fail to do so, your liability will not exceed the amount of the unauthorized EFTs that occur after the close of the 60 days and before notice to us, and that we establish would not have occurred had you notified us within the 60-day period. You may, as applicable, also be liable for the amounts described in the immediately preceding paragraphs above.
If your delay in notifying us was due to extenuating circumstances, we may extend the times specified in the immediately preceding paragraphs above to a reasonable period. You must notify us of any unauthorized use or errors in person, by telephone at 1-800-OUR-BANK (1-800-687-2265), or in writing to: City Bank, Attn: Financial Loss Prevention Department, P.O. Box 5060, Lubbock, Texas 79408-5060. If you notify us over the phone or in person, we may require that you send your complaint or question in writing within 10 Business Days of your notification to us. We will determine whether an error occurred within ten (10) Business Days after we hear from you, and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time to conduct our investigation, however, we will notify you of our need for an extension, which may take up to 45 days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 Business Days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 Business Days, we may not credit your account.
For errors involving new accounts, point-of-sale, or foreign-initiated transactions, we may take up to 90 days to investigate your complaint or question. For new accounts, we may take up to 20 Business Days to credit your account for the amount you think is in error. We will tell you the results within 3 Business Days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you an explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in the investigation.
If you authorize a person to regularly debit your Account and the amount varies from the previous amount debited, the person debiting your Account is required to tell you, at least 10 days before each debit, when the debit will be made and how much it will be.
You may place a stop payment order on preauthorized EFTs by calling 1-800-OUR-BANK (1-800-687-2265) at least three (3) Business Days prior to the scheduled transfer date. We require your name and the account number associated with the transfer, and (a) the exact name of the payee, (b) the exact payment amount, and (c) the scheduled transfer date. Failure to provide correct and complete information may make it impossible for us to stop payment of the preauthorized EFT. You agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from and against any loss incurred by us as a result of our paying an EFT if any of the information relied upon in the stop payment order is incorrect or incomplete (or as a result of our not paying a preauthorized EFT for which a valid stop payment order is in effect). If we pay a preauthorized EFT despite a valid stop payment order, we may require you to provide us with an affidavit describing in detail the dispute.
22. Internal Account Transfers.
- Processing of Transfer Requests. Transfers can be made two ways. One-time transfers may be scheduled immediately or scheduled for a future date. One-time immediate transfers can be made from a linked City Bank checking or savings account to most linked City Bank accounts. Scheduled transfers can be made from a linked City Bank checking or savings, to a linked checking or savings account. Transfers from a deposit account are immediately reflected in the account’s available balance.
- Scheduled and Recurring Transfers. Transfers scheduled for a weekend or a non-Business Day will be processed on the prior Business Day. All other scheduled transfers will be processed from the funding account at the beginning of the Business Day requested.
- Transfers to Deposit Accounts. Transfers completed through the Internal Account Transfer Service before 7:00 p.m. Central Time on a Business Day are posted to your account the same day. Transfers completed after 7:00 p.m. Central Time on a Business Day or anytime on a Saturday, Sunday, or banking holiday will be posted on the next Business Day. When you instruct City Bank to transfer funds to or from your City Bank accounts through the Digital Banking Services, you authorize City Bank to withdraw the necessary funds from the City Bank account you designate. As with any funds transfer request, whether or not utilizing the Digital Banking Services, you agree that you will instruct City bank to make a withdrawal only when sufficient balance is or will be available in your designated City Bank account at the time of withdrawal. City Bank will not be obligated to act on any withdrawal instruction from you if sufficient funds, including overdraft lines of credit, are not available in the account you designate.
Please note, transfers to any deposit account on any day that is not a Business Day (i.e., a Saturday, Sunday or bank holiday), will appear with our next Business Day’s date in the deposit account transaction history.
All transfers submitted to a deposit account are immediately reflected in the account’s available balance.
- Canceling Transfers. You can cancel a one-time immediate transfer prior to 7:00 p.m. Central Time on the date the transfer was submitted.
Future-dated and recurring transfers can be canceled prior to 7:00 p.m. Central Time on the bank’s Business Day the transfer is scheduled to be made. If the transfer’s status is In Process or Processed, you can no longer cancel it. After you cancel a future-dated transfer, the status changes to Canceled. Canceled transfers remain under Review Transfers.
The easiest and most convenient way to cancel a payment or transfer is through the method described above. You may, however, request to cancel a scheduled or recurring payment or a future-dated transfer by calling us at: 1-800-OUR-BANK.
23. External Transfers. Subject to the terms, conditions and limitations set forth in this Agreement, you may be permitted to use the Digital Banking Service(s) to perform “external transfers” from your City Bank account to another account you own at another financial institution (provided such external account is located at a United States financial institution). External transfers are transfers that allow you to debit or credit your City Bank account from an account at another financial institution that is owned by you. To access external transfers, you are required to provide the account and routing number of the account at the other financial institution to which you wish to debit or credit, and go through a verification process that uses micro deposits that may take anywhere from 1-3 Business Days to be deposited and debited from the other external account. You may only use external transfers for accounts at other financial institutions which are owned by the same person who is the customer on the City Bank account to which external transfers are initiated through the Digital Banking Service(s). By accessing and/or making an external transfer, you represent and warrant to City Bank that you are the owner of both the City Bank account and the external account at the other financial institution. Once the external account has been verified by you (through the confirmation of the amount of the micro deposit in the other external account), you are then permitted to transfer money to or from the external account. In the event that you do not own the other external account, despite your representation and warranty to the contrary, you hereby release, indemnify and hold City Bank harmless for all liabilities and losses resulting or arising from or out of external transfers to accounts that you do not own. Except in the case of unauthorized access to your Digital Banking Service(s) for which you would not otherwise be liable to City Bank under this Agreement, in no event will City Bank bear any liability for any external transfer that is made to an account that is not owned by you (as the same is a violation of this Agreement). You can only transfer funds to and from domestic (United States) financial institutions. External transfers may take up to five (5) Business Days to process.

However, the Bank may correct or amend MICR line information associated with an Electronic Image to facilitate processing of the Electronic Image or a Substitute Check created from that Electronic Image.
Notices of rejection shall be effective when given. Bank shall have no liability to you by reason of the rejection of any such RDC deposit or the fact that such notice is not given at an earlier time than that provided for herein.
- Funds Availability Regarding RDC Deposits.
- Bank Responsibilities. Bank will provide access to the processing equipment and software for RDC Services through the Bank’s Mobile App. Bank will also provide maintenance and support for the RDC Services to ensure the accurate processing of checks, including but not limited to:
- Corrections, contingent or alternate work methods, and repairs to any known system bugs or errors.
- Modifications, enhancements, or updates that City Bank elects to make generally available to its customers.
- Telephone and email support during City Bank’s normal business hours.
Bank will provide the required Login ID and password to Customer in order to engage in RDC Services.
Bank will provide Documentation as well as training materials and support reasonably required for Customer’s use of RDC Services.
Bank will accept for deposit and collection to the Customer’s designated account(s) the Electronic Images of Original Checks that are transmitted to Bank in compliance with this Agreement and all applicable laws, rules and regulations. RDC deposits are deemed to have been received upon confirmation by Bank of successful receipt of the transmission of Electronic Images that are complete, usable, and adhere to the data specifications set forth in this Agreement. If the Electronic Images are not complete, are not usable, or do not adhere to data specifications, the images may not be processed by Bank. In such event, your deposit will be adjusted and notification will be provided to you.
Bank will process your Electronic Images that are Sufficient Image Copies after it has received your transmission of Electronic Images. Bank will use commercially reasonable efforts to present the Sufficient Image Copies for collection under the Check 21 framework. Unless Bank notifies you otherwise, Bank will provide same day ledger credit to your deposit account for all Sufficient Image Copies transmitted by you and received by Bank in accordance with the requirements of this Service and within the timelines established by Bank. However, Bank shall not be responsible for providing ledger credit on the same day a file has begun to be transmitted to Bank by you unless the file containing the Electronic Image is fully received by Bank prior to the cut-off time of 5 p.m. Central Standard Time.
If a Drawee Financial Institution returns an image representing an item to Bank unpaid, Bank may charge your applicable account for such returned item, whether or not the return is timely and properly made, and may either (i) return the item to you, or (ii) re-present it to the Drawee Financial Institution before returning it to you. Items may be returned as Image Exchange Items, rather than Substitute Checks. If a Drawee Financial Institution or other third party makes a claim against Bank or seeks re-credit with respect to any electronic item, Bank may provisionally freeze or hold aside a like amount in your applicable account pending investigation and resolution of the claim.
Bank will provide information detailing Items processed, return items, deposit adjustments, and other related information in your applicable account statement. Bank will also retain any Electronic Images contained in Bank’s cash letter file for a period of up to five (5) years.
Bank may refuse to process any non-conforming items, including without limitation, any items that do not meet the definition of a “check.”
- Customer Responsibilities. Customer will maintain at least one or more checking accounts at Bank eligible for the receipt of RDC deposits.
Customer will inspect and verify the quality of Electronic Images, ensuring that the Electronic Images of the front and back of the Original Checks are legible for all posting and clearing purposes by Bank. Specifically, the Customer is warranting that:
- The Electronic Image is an accurate representation of all information on the front and back of the Original Check at the time the check was converted to an Electronic Image, and the Electronic Image contains all endorsements from the Original Check.
- Each Electronic Image (or related electronic data file) contains a record of all MICR line information required for a Substitute Check and satisfies all the requirements of Check 21 and Regulation CC for the creation and/or transferring of a Substitute Check.
- The Original Check, a duplicate Electronic Image, or any copy of the Original Check or Electronic Image will not be deposited by the Customer with Bank (unless Bank instructs the you to do so) or under any circumstance with any other bank or financial institution.
- The Original Check, a duplicate Electronic Image, or any copy of the Original Check or Electronic Image will not be presented, transferred, or returned such that Bank or any other person will be asked to make payment based on an Original Check or Electronic Image that Bank or the other person has already paid.
The Customer’s applicable account will be charged for any deposited check that is later returned to Bank owing to an actual or alleged breach of any such warranty above or otherwise made in this Agreement.
Customer will assist in the installation and implementation of any changes and upgrades to the RDC Services as required by Bank to ensure compliance with regulatory changes and developments, or to protect the integrity and security of such Services.
Customer will use the RDC Services to enter, process, and transmit Original Checks in accordance with procedures and transmission deadlines outlined in this Agreement.
Customer will verify Bank’s receipt of its RDC deposits by reviewing deposits that have been posted to the designated accounts, in addition to cooperating with Bank in any investigation and resolving any unsuccessful or lost transmissions. Customer will comply with all Security Procedures outlined in this Agreement and any Documentation and agrees not to bypass, override or disable any security mechanisms in the processing software or processing equipment.
Customer will retain each Original Check for the time frame specified in this Agreement after an Electronic Image of the check has been created and will promptly provide any related Original Check (or Sufficient Copy of the front & back of the Original Check) to Bank as requested to aid in the clearing and collection process or to resolve claims by third parties with respect to any check.
Customer understands that in all cases it is solely responsible for safeguarding all such images from destruction, alteration or theft in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement.
Customer will use commercially reasonable methods to destroy the Original Checks after the required retention time has expired to render them unusable or otherwise unreadable.
Customer will cooperate with Bank in providing information and access to Customer records in the event of lost, mistaken, incomplete, or unusable Electronic Images, or in the event of claims of fraud, alteration, counterfeit or otherwise.
Customer may not perform RDC Services for any third party, and any attempt to do so shall automatically terminate this Agreement, except for any provisions of this Agreement that are expressly to survive such termination.
- Representations and Warranties. By depositing Electronic Images with the Bank via the RDC Service, you give us the same warranties and indemnities that we, as a reconverting bank, would give under applicable law or regulation. You understand and acknowledge that all of the warranties deemed given by a depositor of a check to a bank under the Uniform Commercial Code (“UCC”), as applicable from time to time in the State of Texas, shall also apply to any Electronic Image of an Original Check the same as if such Electronic Image or Substitute Check were a paper check within the meaning of the UCC as adopted by the State of Texas (“Texas UCC”). Accordingly, except to the extent that any warranties deemed given under the Texas UCC are expressly superseded by the Check 21 Act or the Check 21 regulations, you understand that you are deemed to give us all the same warranties you would have given under the Texas UCC for the deposit of an Original Check by transferring to us: (a) any Substitute Check; (b) an IRD or other item purporting to be a Substitute Check; or (c) any Electronic Image that purports to contain a Sufficient Copy of an Original Check or a Substitute Check.
Such warranties also include the following two (2) specific warranties regarding transfer and presentment:
- You warrant that the Electronic Image that we convert to a Substitute Check meets the requirements described in § 229.51(a)(1) – (2) of the Check 21 Regulation (found at 12 CFR §229.51(a)(1) – (2)) for legal equivalence; and
- And your warranty given above is deemed given to us and any other person, company or bank to which we transfer, present or return the Substitute Check or a paper or electronic representation of the Substitute Check.
The above warranties are deemed given to Bank and any person, company or bank to which Bank transfers, presents or returns any of the Images included in such electronic file as a Sufficient Image Copy or that purports to be a Sufficient Image Copy created by Bank or any subsequent bank receiving a copy of such image. Customer represents that it shall permit no third parties to use the RDC Services to deposit Original Checks to Customer’s Account.
With respect to each and every RDC deposit initiated by you, you represent and warrant to, Bank and agrees, that you shall perform your obligations under this Agreement in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations, including the sanctions laws administered by OFAC and the Bank Secrecy Act.
- Liability; Limitations on Liability; Indemnity. In addition to other limitations of liability contained herein, in the performance of this Agreement, Bank shall be entitled to rely solely on the information, representations, and warranties provided by Customer pursuant to this Agreement and the use of the RDC Services, and shall not be responsible for the accuracy or completeness thereof. Bank shall be responsible only for performing the services expressly provided for in this Agreement, and shall be liable only for its gross negligence or willful misconduct in performing those services.
Bank shall not be responsible for Customer’s acts or omissions (including without limitation the amount, accuracy, timeliness of transmittal, or authorization of any deposit received from Customer) or those of any other person, including, without limitation, any Federal Reserve Bank, or transmission or communications facility, and no such person shall be deemed Bank’s agent.
Bank makes no warranty of any kind, expressed or implied, including any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, the existence of any latent or patent defects, viruses, or the accuracy or freedom from error, of the data or the program used by or furnished to the Bank or to you by licenser or others, in connection with any software or Service(s) provided to you under this Agreement. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Bank makes no representation or warranty, expressed or implied, against any infringement of any proprietary rights of any other party. You assume the entire risk as to the quality and performance of the software provided, the suitability of the RDC Services, and with respect to any documentation. This paragraph shall survive the termination of this Agreement by either you or the Bank, and also limits the liability of any agent, employee, or affiliate of the Bank. We do not and cannot warrant that the software provided will operate without errors, or that any or all RDC Services will be available and operational at all times.
You agree to indemnify Bank against any loss, liability, or expense (including attorney’s fees and expenses) resulting from or arising out of any claim of any person that the Bank is responsible for any act or omission of Customer or any other person described in this Section.
Bank shall be liable only for Customer’s actual damages; in no event shall Bank be liable for any consequential, special, incidental, punitive, or indirect loss or damage which Customer may incur or suffer in connection with this Agreement, whether or not the likelihood of such damages was known or contemplated by the Bank and regardless of the legal or equitable theory of liability which Customer may assert, including, without limitation, loss or damage from subsequent wrongful dishonor resulting from Bank’s acts or omissions pursuant to this Agreement.
Liability shall not exceed the sum of the amount of any loss suffered by the Customer as a result of a breach of warranties under Regulation CC (12 CFR Part 229) up to the amount of any Substitute Check, interest and expenses (including cost and reasonable attorney fees and other expenses of presentation) related to the Substitute Check reduced by any amount that the Customer receives and retains as a re-credit. Furthermore, such liability shall be further reduced by the amount of any damages incurred as a result of the negligence or bad faith of the Customer.
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing provisions, Bank shall be excused from failing to act or delay in acting if such failure or delay is caused by legal constraint, interruption of transmission of communication facilities, equipment failure, war, adverse weather, terrorism, emergency conditions, or other circumstances beyond Bank’s control.
In addition, Bank shall be excused from failing to transmit or delay in transmitting a deposit if such transmittal would result in Bank’s having exceeded any limitation upon its intra-day net funds position established pursuant to present or future Federal Reserve guidelines or in Bank’s reasonable judgment otherwise violating any provision of any present or future risk control program of the Federal Reserve or any rule or regulation of any other U.S. governmental regulatory authority. In such event, Customer shall be responsible for having a contingency plan in place including temporarily depositing original, paper items at any branch facility of the Bank.
Subject to the foregoing limitations, Bank’s liability for loss of interest resulting from its error or delay shall be calculated by using a rate equal to the average Federal Funds rate at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas for the period involved. At Bank’s option, payment of such interest may be made by crediting the account resulting from or arising out of any claim of any person that Bank is responsible for any act or omission of Customer or any other person described in Section.
- Termination. In addition to other termination rights contained herein, Bank reserves the right to terminate the RDC Service immediately upon providing written notice to you of such termination. We may also, in our sole discretion, terminate your RDC Service effective immediately if: (i) there is an occurrence of a material change in your account activity or other risk analysis criteria as determined by us in our sole and absolute discretion; (ii) we at any time determine that you do not meet our risk or other qualification requirements; (iii) we discover any willful misconduct (including but not limited to types of fraudulent activity) on your part or any other party with respect to Electronic Images submitted for deposit by you; (iv) you are in default of any terms of this Agreement where such default gives us the right to terminate, immediately or otherwise, or close your account; (v) you have not used RDC Services for a period of time deemed to constitute an inactive service by us (in our sole discretion); or (vi) you are in default of any terms of the Agreement or any other agreement with us. In any of these events, you agree that our sole obligation shall be to provide notice of our termination of RDC Services to you, and that such notification will be reasonable if it is mailed to your statement mailing address immediately upon termination.
Either you or Bank may terminate RDC Services, with or without cause, upon thirty (30) calendar days’ written notice to the other of its intent to do so, sent to you at your statement address and sent to us at the address provided herein. In the event of termination of Mobile RDC Services, your rights and responsibilities as well as ours, shall continue through any applicable settlement period, including your responsibility to pay us for Mobile RDC Services and with respect to transactions processed prior to the effective date of termination. If Mobile RDC Services are terminated by us, we may accelerate all amounts due and to become due, and you agree to promptly make full payment to us of all amounts due and amounts incurred by you through your use of our RDC Services.
Any termination of the RDC Services shall not affect any of the Bank’s rights and Customer’s obligations with respect to deposits initiated by you prior to such termination, or the payment obligations of Customer with respect to services performed by Bank prior to termination, or any other obligations that survive termination of this Agreement.
25. P2P Service. The P2P Service is a person-to-person (“P2P”) funds transfer service that allows a Sender to transfer funds to a Recipient through electronic means. The following P2P Service terms set forth the terms and conditions under which the P2P Service is offered. These P2P Service terms affect your rights and you should read them carefully.
Unauthorized use of the P2P Service is strictly prohibited and is subject to prosecution under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 and Title 18, U.S. Code Sec. 1001 and 1030. City Bank or its Service Provider may monitor and audit usage of the P2P Service. You are hereby notified that the use of the P2P Service constitutes consent to such monitoring and auditing.
Any Account accessed through the P2P Service is also subject to the terms and conditions of your Account (“Account Disclosures”). You should review the Account Disclosures carefully, as they may include transaction limitations and fees that might apply to your use of the P2P Service.
- Definitions. The following definitions are applicable to these P2P Service terms:
- “Account” or “Accounts” refers to any accounts that may be debited or credited with funds under these P2P Service terms.
- “Recipient” means the cardholder to whom the Sender transfers funds.
- “Sender” is the Bank Cardholder that transfers funds to another person through the P2P Service.
- “P2P Service” means the person-to-person service that allows a Sender to send funds to Recipient.
- “Service Provider” is the Bank’s vendor that arranges for person-to-person payments to customers of any U.S. financial institution.
- “Site” is the Service Provider’s electronic location accessed by a user through a mobile phone, computer or other access device.
- “Transfer” means an electronic movement of funds from an account at Bank to an account of another party by means of the P2P Service.
- “Transfer Instructions” are the information that you provide when using the P2P Service.
- “Us,” “We,” “Our,” and “Bank” means City Bank.
- “You” and “Your” mean each person who applies or registers to use the P2P Service and each person who uses the P2P Service, including both the Sender and Recipient of a Transfer.
- Description of P2P Service and Consent. Bank debit cardholders may send one-time Transfers to Bank customers or a depositor of another financial institution. Notice is given to the Recipient by the Sender providing the Recipient's email address or mobile phone number. You may originate these Transfers by use of a computer or a mobile smart phone. You may register for the P2P Service which will make future Transfers more convenient for you. To use this P2P Service you are providing information to our Service Provider from your mobile phone, desktop, laptop, or other computer. Service Provider is a vendor of Bank.
By participating in the P2P Service, you are representing to the Bank that you are the owner or you have the authority to act on behalf of the owner of the mobile phone number or email address you are using to send or receive messages regarding Transfers. In addition, you are consenting to the receipt of emails or automated text messages from the Bank or its agent, regarding the Transfers and represent to the Bank that you have obtained the consent of the Recipients of your intended Transfers.
Funds may be transferred to any account in the United States as long as the Transfer is legal and allowed by the financial institutions involved.
- Eligibility. Individuals aged 18 years and older with a debit card issued by Bank are eligible to use this P2P Service to send funds to a Recipient. Any individual age 18 years and older with an account in the United States that may receive POS or ACH transactions may use this P2P Service to receive funds that are transferred by the Sender. The P2P Service is not offered to individuals under the age of 18. Other restrictions and eligibility requirements apply as described in these P2P Service terms or other disclosures.Bank does not knowingly collect any personal information from or about individuals under 18 years of age. Please do not submit such information to the Bank, and as a parent or legal guardian, please do not allow your children to submit personal information without your permission. By using the Site or the P2P Service, you represent that you meet these requirements.
- Transfers. You may make one-time Transfers by entering your debit card number and email address. The Sender provides the Recipient's email address or mobile phone number, and the P2P Service uses this information to notify the Recipient. A Recipient must accept the Transfer within 10 days, or the Transfer will be cancelled and reversed. During this period, funds will be removed from the Sender's Account for the amount of the Transfer and the fee. Once the Recipient has successfully accepted the Transfer, funds will be sent to the Recipient’s financial institutions for deposit to the Recipient's account. If the Sender and Recipient are both Bank customers enrolled in the P2P Service, Transfers will be immediately debited from the Sender's Account and reflected in the Recipient's Account. If the Sender and Recipient are both enrolled in the P2P Service but are customers of different financial institutions, Transfers will be immediately debited from the Sender's Account and will be delivered to the Recipient's financial institution once claimed. Bank is not responsible for any failure of another financial institution to timely credit its customer's account.
You acknowledge and agree that Transfers will be completed using only the email address or mobile phone number you enter even if it identifies a person different from your intended Recipient. The name you enter will help you identify your intended Recipient in the drop down menu and your transaction history but will not be used to process payments. You must accurately enter the Recipient's email address or mobile phone number since your obligation to pay for the Transfer will not be excused by an error in the information you enter.
Transfer Instructions relating to external accounts and the transmission and issuance of data related to such Transfer Instructions shall be received pursuant to the terms of P2P Service terms, and the rules of the National Automated Clearing House Association ("NACHA") and the applicable automated clearing house, as well as any EFT Network, or networks, utilized to automate the transfer of funds and governed by Regulation E, (collectively, the "Rules"). The parties agree to be bound by such Rules as in effect from time to time. In accordance with such Rules, any credit to an Account shall be provisional until the Bank or the third party institution, which holds the account, has finally settled such credit.
It is the responsibility of the Sender and Recipient of funds to provide accurate information. You agree that you as Sender are authorized to withdraw or as Recipient are authorized to deposit funds into the Accounts whose numbers you provide or into the Accounts associated with the card number you are providing. You authorize the Bank, directly or through third parties, to make any inquires considered necessary to validate your identity. This may include asking you for further information, requiring you to take steps to confirm ownership of your email address or financial instruments, ordering a credit report and verifying your information against third party databases or through other sources.
You authorize the Bank to debit your account to complete the Transfer you request. If you are receiving funds, you authorize the crediting of your account using card networks or NACHA
- Sender Acknowledgment. By using this P2P Service you, as the Sender, authorize the sending of an email or text message instructing the Recipient how to receive the funds that you are sending. You are further authorizing any Recipient of this message to act on the instructions to receive the funds you are sending. You acknowledge that any party receiving the email message at the email address you provide or text message at the mobile phone number you provide may obtain the funds you are sending.
You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for determining the identity of the party who receives the email or text message and acts upon the email or text message you provide. Your funds may not reach the intended Recipient because of errors made by the Sender or Recipient and you could lose all the funds. The funds that are credited to the account cannot be recalled by us. If you suspect that you have entered information incorrectly, call us immediately and we may be able to cancel the Transfer. We have no obligation to cancel the Transfer or to reimburse funds that were transferred according to the Sender’s instructions. Furthermore, we may reject any Transfer request and may terminate your use of this P2P Service for any reason including attempting insufficient funded Transfers.
- Recipient Acknowledgment. By using this P2P Service you as the Recipient are confirming that you are the person to whom the Sender intends to transfer funds. As the Recipient, you will be asked to provide your debit card information that will be used to transfer funds to your Account. If you choose not to provide your debit card information or your institution does not participate, you will be asked to provide account information including account number and routing information for your financial institution. In this case the funds will be transferred through the Automated Clearing House.
It is important that you enter accurate information. You agree that Bank, the receiving financial institution and our Service Provider may rely solely on the instructions you provide. If you enter inaccurate cardholder or account number information the funds may be deposited into another person’s account. You acknowledge that the financial institution may make the deposit based on the account number or card number you provide even if those numbers do not correlate to the name that you provide. Retrieval of these funds will be the Recipient’s responsibility to work with the financial institution to which the funds were sent. You may lose all the funds that were transferred. The funds that are credited to the account cannot be recalled by us.
If you suspect that you have entered information incorrectly or that you have received funds in error, call us immediately and we may attempt to cancel the transaction. We have no obligation to cancel the Transfer or to reimburse funds that were transferred according to the Recipient’s instructions.
By using this P2P Service you agree that you are the intended recipient of the email or text message and that you are the intended recipient of the funds. If you are not the person to whom the funds are intended then you agree to take no further action. You understand that it is a federal felony to use another person's identification with the intent to commit unlawful activity. You represent that the information you are providing is your true and correct information. If any information you provide is fraudulent, Bank reserves the right to recover all costs or losses from you, regardless of whether such costs or losses are incurred directly or indirectly.
- Fees and Limitations on Transfers. The Bank may establish a limit on the number of Transfers and on the total dollar amount of Transfers that can be attempted or completed in one day. You may send multiple Transfers each day; a separate fee is charged for each Transfer you send. We may modify the amount and frequency of Transfers at any time for security reasons or due to account activity.
Funds may be transferred from the account from which the debit card is authorized to transfer funds. Such transfers may overdraft your account and may result in a transfer from another account to cover the overdraft. In any of these situations, a transfer fee will be charged, as applicable. You may be denied service for insufficient funds in your account. You will be responsible for any other transaction fees that apply to your Account.
Please note that your mobile carrier may charge you for text messaging. Please check your mobile service agreement for details on applicable fees. The receiving institution may have limits on the number and type of Transfers allowed. Your financial institution may also charge a transaction fee.
- Timing of Transfers. Transfers to remove the funds from the Sender’s Account may take place immediately. However, the timing of funds received will depend on when the Recipient responds to the email and when their financial institution posts the Transfer. The posting of the Transfer is dependent on the Business Days of that institution.
- Issues Affecting the Posting of Transfers. You authorize us to debit your account to complete the Transfer you request. If you are receiving funds, you authorize the Bank to credit your Account using card networks/switches or NACHA.
Other events may affect the timing or success of a Transfer reaching the intended Recipient. Such events may include, but are not limited to, errors made by the Sender or Recipient in entering information, inaccurate account or card number information, delays in posting by the receiving institution, acts of God, and network and NACHA interruptions. If we believe the Transfer may be illegal, we may decline or reverse the Transfer. The receiving institution may choose not to post the Transfer or to delay posting the Transfer. Neither the Bank nor the Service Provider is responsible for any delays in the Transfer of funds or the posting of funds to the Recipient’s Account. You may have certain rights and responsibilities regarding the failure to timely post transactions and you are encouraged to pursue dispute resolution with the receiving financial institution.
Financial institutions have rules and regulations that govern their accounts. Some of these regulations may not allow a POS or ACH transfer of funds. You are responsible for ensuring that these types of Transfers are allowed for the Account that you specify. For example, an IRA may not allow electronic transfers directly into the Account. We are not responsible for any action or lack of action taken by the financial institution that delays, inhibits, or prevents the posting of the Transfer to the Account.
- Security. The Sender and Recipient of funds may choose to register for this P2P Service to simplify their future use of the P2P Service. They will be asked to create a username and password and you are responsible for keeping them secure. We will not ask you for your password.
If the financial institution contacts us or our Service Provider for information regarding your Account, you authorize us to discuss the Transfer and the account information you have provided.
- Cookies, Browser Information and Related Issues. When you visit the Site, the Service Provider may receive certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as the originating IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring website addresses, and other information. This data may be used, among other uses, to improve the operation of the Site and to improve the security of the Site and P2P Service by assisting in "authenticating" who you are when you access the Site or P2P Service, particularly if you register for the P2P Service and are issued or create a username and password.
The Service Provider may also receive additional information about your visit to the Site, including the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take in connection with the Site and the P2P Service. This data may be used, among other uses, to improve the operation of the Site and the P2P Service.
You may encounter the Service Provider’s cookies or pixel tags on websites that we do not control. For example, if you view a web page created by a third party or use an application developed by a third party, there may be a cookie or pixel tag placed by the web page or application.
- Access to Information about You. You may review and update the personal information maintained about you in the "Manage Account" section of the Site at any time to ensure that it is accurate.
Once you close your Accounts with the Bank or you no longer have a debit card, you may no longer send Transfers. However your Account information will be maintained for a retention period to accommodate any residual issues that may arise.
- Amendments. City Bank may amend these P2P Service terms or any other disclosures at any time by posting a revised version on the Site. The revised version will be effective immediately at the time it is posted, unless a delayed effective date is expressly stated therein. Bank may also provide you with an email notification of such amendments.The Bank may require you to affirmatively acknowledge or accept the revised P2P Service terms in order to continue using the P2P Service. Any use of the P2P Service after a notice of change (whether by Site posting, email, or express acknowledgment or acceptance) will constitute your express agreement to such changes.
- Limitation on Damages. BANK’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY AND THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF ITS AFFILIATES AND SERVICE PROVIDERS AND THE EMPLOYEES AND CONTRACTORS OF EACH OF THESE, TO YOU AND ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY AND ALL CLAIMS OR OBLIGATIONS RELATING TO THESE P2P SERVICE TERMS SHALL BE LIMITED TO DIRECT OUT OF POCKET DAMAGES UP TO A MAXIMUM OF $500 (FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS). SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
- Time for Making a Claim. IN NO EVENT SHALL BANK OR ITS AFFILIATES OR SERVICE PROVIDERS OR THE EMPLOYEES OR CONTRACTORS OF ANY OF THESE BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THE P2P SERVICE OR THE PORTION OF THE SITE THROUGH WHICH THE P2P SERVICE IS OFFERED THAT YOU DO NOT STATE IN WRITING IN A COMPLAINT FILED IN A COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION WITHIN TWO (2) YEARS OF THE DATE THAT THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM OCCURRED. THESE LIMITATIONS WILL APPLY TO ALL CAUSES OF ACTION, WHETHER ARISING FROM BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY.
- Indemnification. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold Bank and its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents, 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 your use of the P2P Service, our reliance on the Transfer instructions and other information you provide, the performance or non-performance of other financial institutions, or other signers, owners or users of your Accounts.
- Severability. If any provision of these P2P Service terms are found to be invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible, and the remaining provisions will remain in full force.
26. Card Swap Payment Service.
- Card Swap Payment Service Description. We provide a bill payment service (the “Card Swap Payment Service”) that allows you to make recurring bill payments, including subscription services bill payments, to certain third-party service providers (“Payees”) by accessing your accounts on such Payees’ websites and online services (“Payee Sites”) via the Card Swap Payment Service. The Card Swap Payment Service allows you to make bill payments using funds from a single Funding Account, as that term is defined in Section 27(C) below, and also allows you to switch Funding Accounts on Payee Sites.
- Payee Account Information. In order to use the Card Swap Payment Service, you will need to link your accounts on Payee Sites to the Card Swap Payment Service by providing us and our licensors with the information necessary to access such Payee accounts (such as account usernames and passwords) (“Payee Account Information”). You hereby authorize us and our licensors to use and store your Payee Account Information and to access your accounts on Payee Sites to provide the Card Swap Payment Service to you and to configure the Card Swap Payment Service so that it is compatible with the applicable Payee Sites. You represent and warrant to us that you are the legal owner of any accounts on Payee Sites that you access via the Card Swap Payment Service and that you have the authority to allow City Bank to access your accounts using your Payee Account Information on your behalf.
- Funding Accounts. If you use the Card Swap Payment Service, bills will be paid using funds from the City Bank accounts that are permitted, which are City Bank issued credit cards, City Bank issued debit cards and City Bank checking accounts (each, a “Funding Account”). By initiating a bill payment through the Card Swap Payment Service, you authorize us to charge the Funding Account(s) that you designate to pay such bill. You represent and warrant that you have the right to authorize us to charge each Funding Account for payments you initiate using the Card Swap Payment Service. You agree to maintain a balance or available credit limit in each specified Funding Account that is sufficient to fund all payments you initiate using the Card Swap Payment Service. If for any reason the Card Swap Payment Service is unable to access funds from a specified Funding Account to complete a bill payment transaction you initiate (for example, non-sufficient funds), the transaction may not be completed.

To report unauthorized transactions on any of your accounts, please contact us using the information listed in Section 14 of this Agreement. Requirements for reporting unauthorized transactions are set forth in your Deposit Agreement.
Tell us at once if you believe your access code, mobile ID or password has been compromised or if someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission. The best way to minimize your loss is to call us immediately. The unauthorized use of your access code, mobile ID or password could cause you to lose all of your money in your accounts, plus any amount available under your overdraft protection plan.
When you give someone your access code, mobile ID and/or password, you are authorizing that person to use your Digital Banking Services, and you are responsible for all transactions that person performs while using your Digital Banking Services. All transactions that person performs, even those transactions you did not intend or want performed, are authorized transactions. If you notify us that the person is no longer authorized, then only transactions that person performs after the time you notify us are considered unauthorized. Additional information regarding unauthorized transfers can be found in your Deposit Agreement.
Transactions initiated by you, or by someone acting with you or at your instruction, with fraudulent intent are also deemed authorized transactions. For your protection, sign off after every Digital Banking Service session.

Because some states do not allow the exclusion of limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states the liability of the foregoing entities and individuals is limited to the extent permitted by law. With respect to Bill Pay, City Bank has no duty to monitor the payments that are made through the Service. If you are a business and an authorized representative of yours uses your Bill Pay Account to pay bills which are not yours, you assume the entire risk of loss and indemnify and hold us, our directors, officers, employees and agents harmless from all loss, liability, claims, demands, judgments and expenses arising out of or in any way connected with such use.
With respect to business Accounts and use of the Digital Banking Services, if we fail or delay in making a transfer pursuant to your instructions, or if we make a transfer in an erroneous amount which is less than the amount per your instructions, unless otherwise required by law, our liability shall be limited to interest on the amount which we failed to timely transfer, calculated from the date on which the transfer was to be made until the date it was actually made or you canceled the instructions. We may pay such interest either to you or the intended recipient of the transfer, but in no event will we be liable to both parties, and our payment to either party will fully discharge any obligation to the other. If we make a transfer in an erroneous amount which exceeds the amount per your instructions, or if we permit an unauthorized transfer after we have had a reasonable time to act on a notice from you of possible unauthorized use as described above, unless otherwise required by law our liability will be limited to a refund of the amount erroneously paid or transferred, plus interest thereon from the date of the payment or transfer to the date of the refund, but in no event to exceed 60 days’ interest. If we become liable to you for interest compensation under this Agreement or applicable law, such interest shall be calculated based on the average federal funds rate at the Federal Reserve Bank in the district where the Bank is headquartered for each day interest is due, computed on the basis of a 360-day year. UNLESS OTHERWISE REQUIRED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL CITY BANK, ITS AFFILIATES, AND OUR AND THEIR RESPECTIVE THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS, PARTNERS, LICENSORS, EMPLOYEES, DISTRIBUTORS AND AGENTS BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, DIRECT, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, HOWEVER CAUSED AND WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOST PROFITS OR ATTORNEYS’ FEES, EVEN IF WE ARE ADVISED IN ADVANCE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, DAMAGES FOR TELECOMMUNICATION FAILURES, LOSS, CORRUPTION, SECURITY OR THEFT OF DATA, VIRUSES, SPYWARE, LOSS OF PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION, LOSS OF PRIVACY, OR PECUNIARY LOSS ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OR YOUR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES; ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, INCLUDING ANY INTERRUPTION, INACCURACY, ERROR OR OMISSION IN YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES; ANY ACT OR OMISSION BY US IN ADMINISTERING THE SERVICES; OR THE PURCHASE OR USE OF ANY GOODS OR SERVICES OF MERCHANTS OR SUPPLIERS THROUGH THE SERVICES, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, CLAIMS, OR LOSSES AND EVEN IF A REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE
