PART A: SMS TEXT MESSAGING
1. SMS Text Messaging allows you mobile access to your account information for checking balances and recent transactions over SMS (the "SMS Service"). Enrollment in this SMS Service requires you to activate your mobile phone number through our online banking system.
2. The SMS Services are separate and apart from any other charges that may be assessed by your wireless carrier for text messages sent to or received from us. You are responsible for any fees or other charges that your wireless carrier may charge for any related data or message services, including without limitation for short message service (SMS). Check with your wireless carrier for details on specific fees and charges that may apply.
3. The SMS Services are provided by us and not by any other third party. You and we are solely responsible for the content transmitted through the text messages sent between us. You must provide source indication in any messages you send (e.g., mobile telephone number, "From" field in text message, etc.).
4. We may amend these terms, and modify or cancel the SMS Service or any of its features from time to time. We will notify you of any such amendments, modifications or cancellation as required by applicable law. We may suspend or terminate the SMS Service without prior notice if we believe you are in breach of these terms and conditions or your account agreement with us, or if we believe your mobile device or account has been compromised. The SMS Service is also subject to termination in the event your wireless service terminates or lapses.
5. You agree to provide us with a valid mobile number. You agree that we may send you text messages through your wireless provider to you and that your wireless provider is acting as your agent when sending and receiving messages.
6. You represent that you are the owner or authorized user of the mobile device you use in connection with the SMS Service, and that you are authorized to approve the applicable charges.
7. You understand that balances provided through SMS Service may not include recent or pending transactions that have not yet posted to your account. Balance information provided through the SMS Service is for your informational purposes only and is not the same as the periodic statement that will be mailed to you monthly. Our official monthly periodic statement will control if there is any conflict with the information displayed on your mobile device and your monthly periodic statement. We shall not be liable to you for any loss incurred or damage suffered by you as a result of your reliance on such information.
8. You acknowledge that your wireless provider and other service providers may collect data from your use of the SMS Service, and their practices are governed by their own policies. We are not responsible or liable for the acts or policies of such service providers.
9. Notify us immediately of any changes to your registered mobile device. In case of unauthorized access to your mobile device or the SMS Service, you agree to cancel enrollment associated with the mobile device immediately.
10. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold us harmless from any third party claims, liability, damages or costs arising from your use of the SMS Service or from you providing us with a phone number that is not your own.
11. You agree that we will not be liable for failed, delayed, or misdirected delivery of any information sent through the SMS Service; any errors in such information; any action you may or may not take in reliance on the information or SMS Service; or any disclosure of account information to third parties resulting from your use of the service. We will not be liable to you for special, indirect or consequential damages.
12. The SMS Service may not be available outside the United States. If you use SMS Service outside of the United States, you are responsible for having access to the appropriate wireless and/or telecommunications networks and are responsible for all associated fees and charges.
13. You can contact us at any time via email at email@example.com or at 1-800-622-0860, or from your mobile phone by sending a text message with the word "HELP" to 49794. We do not charge for help or info messages; however, your normal wireless provider rates apply.
14. To stop the messages coming to your phone, you can opt out of the SMS Service at any time by sending text to 49794 that says "STOP". You'll receive a confirmation text message. And after that, you will not receive any future messages. You can also cancel the service by logging into online banking and deactivating the SMS Service. If you deactivate cellular service for the mobile phone number that you enrolled in the SMS Service, you are responsible for deactivating that same phone number within the SMS Service.
PART B: MOBILE CHECK DEPOSIT
1. Service. The Mobile Check Deposit Service ("Mobile Deposit") allows you to make deposits of the electronic image of an original paper check or other paper source document payable in U.S Dollars (hereinafter referred to as, an "Item") to your eligible deposit account(s) with us by capturing an electronic image of the Item with your compatible smart phone or tablet and delivering the electronic image and associated deposit information (an "Image") to us, or our processor. Deposits made through Mobile Deposit are subject to this Part B (hereinafter referred to as, the "Mobile Deposit Agreement") and our Deposit Account Agreement and Disclosure ("Account Agreement"), which governs your deposit account(s) with us.
2. Limits. We may establish or revise limits on the dollar amount and/or number of Items or deposits that may be transmitted through Mobile Deposit from time to time. You shall be notified of our most current limits through the service when you attempt to submit an Item. You may also review our current limits by visiting our website www.amalgamatedbank.com. If you attempt to initiate a deposit in excess of these limits, we may reject your deposit. If we permit you to make a deposit in excess of these limits, such deposit will still be subject to the term and conditions herein, and we will not be obligated to allow such a deposit at other times.
3. Eligible items. You agree to scan and deposit only checks drawn on U.S. banks in U.S. dollars.
You agree that you will not use Mobile Deposit to deposit:
- Items payable to any person or entity other than you (i.e., payable to another party and then endorsed to you);
- Items that contain evidence of alteration, or that you know or suspect, or should know or suspect, are fraudulent or otherwise not authorized by the owner of the account on which the check is drawn;
- Items payable to you and another party who is not a joint owner on the account;
- Items which exceed the deposit limits disclosed to you by the Bank;
- Items you are not authorized to deposit to your account;
- Items prohibited by the Bank for Mobile Deposit; For a list of unacceptable mobile deposit items, please visit our website www.amalgamatedbank.com
- Items that have previously been submitted through Mobile Deposit or through a remote deposit capture service offered at any other financial institution;
- Any Item that was previously deposited and returned to you; or
- Items which are stale (more than 6 months old) or post-dated (made payable at some point in the future).
4. Requirements. Each electronic image of an Item must provide all the information on the front and back of the Item at the time presented to you by the drawer, including, but not limited to, information about the drawer and the paying bank that is preprinted on the Item, MICR-line information, signature(s), any required identification written on the front of the Item and any endorsements applied to the back of the Item. The image quality must meet the standards established by the American National Standards Institute, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, and any other regulatory agency, clearing house or association. Endorsements must be made on the back of the check within one and one half inches from the top edge, although we may accept endorsements outside this space. Your endorsement must include your signature and "For Mobile Deposit Only". Any loss we incur from a delay or processing error resulting from an irregular endorsement or other markings by you will be your responsibility. A check payable to two payees must be endorsed by both payees. If the check is payable to you or your joint owner, either of you can endorse it. If the check is made payable to you and your joint owner, both of you must endorse the check.
5. Receipt of Deposit. All Images processed for deposit through Mobile Deposit will be treated as "deposits" under the Account Agreement and will be subject to all terms of such agreement. Your Image is deemed to have been received by the Bank when you receive an email confirmation message that your deposit has been approved and processed. Confirmation does not mean that the Image contains no errors or is complete. We are not responsible for any Image that we do not receive. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to reject any Image we receive for remote deposit into your account and will not be liable for doing so even if such action causes outstanding checks or other debits to your account with us to be dishonored and returned. We will notify you of Images received and then subsequently rejected. Reason for rejection may include any of the following: incomplete or missing endorsement; illegible check or poor image quality; altered check; or duplicate check. This list is for illustrative purposes only and is not a list of all the reasons that an image of an Item may be rejected. If the Image transmitted to us does not comply with our or our processor's requirements for content and/or format, we may, in our sole discretion: further transmit the Item and data in the form received from you; repair or attempt to repair the Item or data and then further transmit it; or return the Item and data to you unprocessed and charge back to your account. Following receipt, we may process the Image by preparing a "substitute check" or clearing the Item as an image.
6. Presentment. The manner in which Items are cleared, presented for payment, and collected shall be done in accordance with the Account Agreement.
7. Items. After you receive confirmation that we have approved and processed an Image, you agree to safeguard, including securely storing, the Item for 30 calendar days after transmission to us and make the Item accessible to us at our request. Upon our request from time to time, you will deliver to us within 10 calendar days, at your expense, the requested Item in your possession. If not provided in a timely manner, such amount will be reversed from your account. Promptly after such period expires, you must destroy the Item by first marking it "VOID" and then destroying it by cross-cut shredding or another commercially acceptable means of destruction. After destruction of an Item, the Image will be the sole evidence of the Item. You agree that you will never re-present the Item. You understand that you are responsible if anyone is asked to make a payment based on an Item that has already been paid.
8. Returned Deposits. As with any non-cash deposit, any credit to your account for Items deposited using Mobile Deposit is provisional. If Items deposited through Mobile Deposit are dishonored, rejected or otherwise returned unpaid by the drawee bank, or are rejected or returned by a clearing agent or collecting bank, for any reason, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the quality of the image, you agree that we may charge back the amount of the Item and provide you with an image of the Item, a paper reproduction of the Item or a substitute check. You will reimburse us for all loss, cost, damage or expense caused by or relating to the processing of the returned item. You shall not attempt to deposit or otherwise negotiate an Item if it has been charged back to you. We may debit any of your accounts to obtain payment for any Item that has been rejected or returned, for any adjustment related to such Item or for any warranty claim related to such Item, whether or not the rejection, return, adjustment or warranty claim was made timely.
9. Your Warranties. You represent and warrant to us that:
- Each Image is a true and accurate rendition of the front and back of the imaged Item without any alteration, and the drawer of such Item has no defense against payment of the Item.
- The amount, payee(s), signature(s), and endorsement(s) on the Image and on the Item are legible, genuine, and accurate.
- You will not deposit or otherwise endorse to a third party any Item deposited through Mobile Deposit and no person will receive a transfer, presentment, or return of, or otherwise be charged for, such Item or a paper or electronic representation of the Item such that the person will be asked to make payment based on an item that has already been paid.
- There are no other duplicate images of any Item deposited through Mobile Deposit.
- You will properly secure the mobile device you use in connection with Mobile Deposit.
- Any Item deposited by you through Mobile Deposit is authorized by the drawer in the amount stated on the Item and to the payee(s) stated on the Item.
- You are authorized to enforce and obtain payment of all Items deposited through Mobile Deposit. You have possession of the original Item and no party will submit the Item for payment.
With respect to each Image, you make to us all representations and warranties that we make or are deemed to make to any party pursuant to law, regulation or clearinghouse rule. You agree that files and images transmitted to us will contain no viruses or any other disabling features that may have an adverse impact on our network, data, or related systems.
10. Compliance with Law. You will use Mobile Deposit for lawful purposes and in compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations.

11. Unavailability. Mobile Deposit may be unavailable temporarily due to system maintenance or technical difficulties, including those of the Internet service provider, cellular service provider and Internet software. In the event that Mobile Deposit is unavailable, you may deposit Items at our branches or at our deposit-taking ATMs.
12. Funds Availability. Deposits made through Mobile Deposit are subject to the Funds Availability Disclosure set forth in the Account Agreement; however, Items deposited through Mobile Deposit are not eligible for expedited funds availability. In general, funds deposited through Mobile Deposit are available to you on the second business day after you receive a confirmation message that your deposited Image was approved and processed. You should maintain a record of the confirmation message that your deposit was approved and processed until your funds become fully available. Longer delays may apply, please see our Funds Availability Disclosure in the Account Agreement. Deposits made through Mobile Deposit are processed in the same manner as a paper deposit made in a branch and are NOT "electronic direct deposits" for purposes of funds availability. Deposits made through Mobile Deposit are considered received if approved and processed before 3:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST). Deposits transmitted through Mobile Deposit and approved and processed by the Bank before 3:30 p.m. EST on a business day will be posted to your account on the same day. Deposits transmitted through Mobile Deposit which are approved and processed after 3:30 p.m. EST or deposits approved and processed on holidays or days that are not our business days, will be posted to your account on the following business day.
13. Business Days. For determining the availability of your deposits, the Bank's business days are generally Monday through Friday, excluding Federal banking holidays. The Bank retains the right to change its banking hours and business days from time to time.
14. Security. You agree you will complete each deposit via Mobile Deposit promptly. If you are unable to complete your deposit promptly, you will ensure that your mobile device remains securely in your possession until the deposit has been completed. It is your responsibility to establish and maintain procedures to safeguard against unauthorized deposits. You will notify us immediately by telephone at 1-800-622-0860 and with written confirmation if you learn of any loss or theft of any Items deposited through Mobile Deposit. You will ensure the safety and integrity of such Items from the time of receipt until the time of destruction.
15. Your Responsibility. You are solely responsible for the quality, completeness, accuracy, validity and integrity of each Image.

16. Indemnification Obligation. You understand and agree that you are required to indemnify us and hold us harmless against any and all claims, actions, damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses) arising from or related to your use of Mobile Deposit and/or breach of this Mobile Deposit Agreement. You understand and agree that this paragraph shall survive the termination of this Mobile Deposit Agreement.
17. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES. YOU AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF MOBILE DEPOSIT AND ALL INFORMATION AND CONTENT (INCLUDING THAT OF THIRD PARTIES) IS AT YOUR RISK AND IS PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS. WE DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND AS TO THE USE OF MOBILE DEPOSIT, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NONINFRINGEMENT. WE MAKE NO WARRANTY THAT MOBILE DEPOSIT WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE. WE MAKE NO WARRANTY THAT THE RESULTS THAT MAY BE OBTAINED WILL BE ACCURATE OR RELIABLE OR THAT ANY ERRORS IN MOBILE DEPOSIT OR TECHNOLOGY WILL BE CORRECTED.
18. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. YOU AGREE THAT WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER LOSSES INCURRED BY YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THE USE OF, INABILITY TO USE, OR THE TERMINATION OF THE USE OF MOBILE DEPOSIT, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION OR CLAIM (WHETHER CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE), EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY THEREOF, EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE REQUIRED BY LAW.
19. Amendments and Termination: We may restrict and/or cancel, without prior notice, your ability to use Mobile Deposit if we notice any suspicious activity.

You may terminate this service anytime by sending a written request by electronic mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 1-800-622-0860.

We may amend or change the terms and conditions for Mobile Deposit at any time. You will be notified of any change in the manner provided by applicable law prior to the effective date of the change. However, if the change is made for security purposes, we can implement such change without prior notice.

8. Receiving Money; Money Transfers by Network Banks
Once a User initiates a transfer of money to your email address, mobile phone number, or Zelle tag enrolled with the Service, you have no ability to stop the transfer. By using the Service, you agree and authorize us to initiate credit entries to the bank account you have enrolled.
Most transfers of money to you from other Users will occur within minutes. There may be other circumstances when the payment may take longer. For example, in order to protect you, us, Zelle and the other Network Banks, we may need or Zelle may need additional time to verify your identity or the identity of the person sending the money. We may also delay or block the transfer to prevent fraud or to meet our regulatory obligations. If we delay or block a payment that you have initiated through a request for money, we will notify you in accordance with your User preferences (i.e. email, push notification).
If you are receiving a payment from a business or government agency, your payment will be delivered in accordance with both this Agreement and the procedures of the business or government agency that is sending you the payment.
9. Sending Money; Debits by Network Banks
You may send money to another User at your initiation or in response to that User's request for money. You understand that use of this Service by you shall at all times be subject to (i) this Agreement, and (ii) your express authorization at the time of the transaction for us to initiate a debit entry to your bank account. You understand that when you send the payment, you will have no ability to stop it. You may only cancel a payment if the person to whom you sent the money has not yet enrolled in the Service. If the person you sent money to has already enrolled with Zelle, either in the Zelle mobile app or with a Network Bank, the money is sent directly to their bank account (except as otherwise provided below) and may not be canceled or revoked.
In most cases, when you are sending money to another User, the transfer will occur in minutes; however, there are circumstances when the payment may take longer. For example, in order to protect you, us, Zelle and the other Network Banks, we may need additional time to verify your identity or the identity of the person receiving the money. If you are sending money to someone who has not enrolled as a User with Zelle, either in the Zelle mobile app or with a Network Bank, they will receive a text or email notification instructing them on how to enroll to receive the money. You understand and acknowledge that a person to whom you are sending money and who is not enrolling as a User may fail to enroll with Zelle, or otherwise ignore the payment notification, and the transfer may not occur.
Sending or receiving money may also be delayed or the transfer may be blocked to prevent fraud or comply with regulatory requirements. If we delay or block a payment that you have initiated, we will notify you in accordance with your User preferences (i.e. email, push notification).
We have no control over the actions of other Users, other Network Banks or other financial institutions that could delay or prevent your money from being delivered to the intended User.
Neither we nor Zelle shall have liability to you for any transfers of money, including without limitation, (i) any failure, through no fault of us or Zelle to complete a transaction in the correct amount, or (ii) any related losses or damages. Neither we nor Zelle shall be liable for any typos or keystroke errors that you may make when using the Service.
THE SERVICE IS INTENDED FOR SENDING MONEY TO FAMILY, FRIENDS AND OTHERS WHOM YOU TRUST. YOU SHOULD NOT USE ZELLE TO SEND MONEY TO PERSONS WITH WHOM YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR OR YOU DO NOT TRUST. ZELLE DOES NOT OFFER A PROTECTTION PROGRAM FOR AUTHORIZED PAYMENTS MADE THROUGH THE SERVICE (FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE THE GOODS OR SERVICES THAT YOU PAID FOR, OR THE GOODS OR SERVICES THAT YOU RECEIVED ARE DAMAGED OR ARE OTHERWISE NOT WHAT YOU EXPECTED).
11. Send Limits
There are daily dollar limits for fund transfers associated with the Zelle Service.
12. Requesting Money
You may request money from another User. You understand and acknowledge that Users to whom you send payment requests may reject or ignore your request. Neither we nor Zelle guarantee that you will receive money from other Users by sending a payment request, or that you will receive the amount that you request. Neither we nor Zelle accept responsibility if the other User rejects or ignores your request, or sends you an amount that is less than you request. If a User ignores your request, we may decide or Zelle may decide, in our sole discretion, that we will not send a reminder or repeat request to that User.
By accepting this Agreement, you agree that you are not engaging in the business of debt collection by attempting to use the Service to request money for the payment or collection of an overdue or delinquent debt; to request money that is owed to another person; or to collect any amounts that are owed pursuant to a court order. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Zelle, its owners, directors, officers agents and Network Banks from and against all claims, losses, expenses, damages and costs (including, but not limited to, direct, incidental, consequential, exemplary and indirect damages), and reasonable attorney's fees, resulting from or arising out of any request for money that you send that is related to overdue or delinquent amounts.
You agree to receive money requests from other Users, and to only send requests for legitimate and lawful purposes. Requests for money are solely between the sender and recipient and are not reviewed or verified by us or by Zelle. Neither we nor Zelle assume responsibility for the accuracy or legality of such requests and do not act as a debt collector on your behalf or on behalf of the sender of a request for money.
We reserve the right, but assume no obligation, to terminate your ability to send requests for money in general, or to specific recipients, if we deem such requests to be potentially unlawful, abusive, offensive or unwelcome by the recipient.
13. Transaction Errors
If you believe your password has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account held at the Bank without your permission, immediately call 1-800-662-0860, or write to: Amalgamated Bank, 275 7th Avenue, New York, NY 10001, Attention: Online Banking Support.
14. Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfers
Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your password has been lost or stolen. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your Account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit). If you tell us within two (2) business days, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone used your password without your permission.
If you do NOT tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your password, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your password without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.00.
Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement showing such transfer was sent to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the sixty (60) days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money, if you had told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay), kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.
15. Liability for Failure to Complete Transfers
In the event that we at any time incur a problem with your use of the Service, including, without limitation, a failure in attempting to debit your Account or to collect with respect to any of your Zelle transfers as described herein, and without limiting any other right or remedy that we may have under this Agreement or otherwise, we reserve the right to suspend your right to use the Service, immediately and without prior notice to you. You understand and agree that such action is reasonable for us to take in order to protect ourselves from loss. In the event of such suspension, you may request reinstatement of your service by contacting us using any of the methods provided under this Agreement. We reserve the right in our sole discretion to grant or deny reinstatement of your use of the Service. In the event we agree to reinstate you, we reserve the right to reinstate you subject to lower per-transaction and monthly dollar limits and/or with other restrictions than otherwise might be available to you. Based upon your subsequent usage of the Service, we in our sole discretion may thereafter restore your ability to effect transfers at our standard transfers limits.
There are no fees associated with the Zelle service. Please refer to our Fee Schedule for related mobile and online banking fees. Mobile carrier service charges may apply.
