HOURS OF OPERATION
The Services are generally available 24 hours-a-day, 7 days a week, except during special maintenance and upgrade periods, which routinely are scheduled between 12:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. Monday mornings.
USE OF YOUR SECURITY PASSWORD
The safety of our customers’ accounts and account information is of paramount importance to Envision Bank. We go through great lengths to protect confidentiality and the security of your account, and urge you to do the same. You agree not to allow anyone to gain access to the Services or to let anyone know your Password used with the Services. You agree to assume responsibility for all transactions initiated through the Services with your Envision Bank User-ID, up to the limits allowed by applicable law. While Envision Bank continues to provide our customers with the level of online security we believe necessary and appropriate, customers who share their User-IDs and Passwords are giving up the full benefit of our security measures and legal protections to which they may be entitled. No Envision Bank representative will ever call or send an e-mail and ask for your Access ID or User Password.
IF YOUR PASSWORD HAS BEEN LOST OR STOLEN
Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your password has been lost or stolen. You can contact Envision Bank at 877-963-2100, our call center is open from 7am to 7pm Monday through Friday and 8am-2pm Saturday. 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 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your password, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your password without your permission. Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, including those made by card, password, or other means, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within 60 days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 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.
New services may be introduced for Online Banking from time to time. Envision Bank will notify you of the existence of these new services. By using these services when they become available, you agree to be bound by the rules that will be made available to you concerning these services.
BILL PAYMENT SERVICE
The Bill Payment Service permits you to use your Internet-enabled device to direct payments from your designated Online Bill Pay Account to third parties you wish to pay and who accepts Bill Payment Services.
Through the Bill Payment Service, you can pay bills from your Bill Pay Account to:
• Business Payees—any business, merchant, or professional that generates a bill or invoice for products or services provided to you on your behalf and that has an address we can verify
• Individual Payees—payments made to individuals, family, or friends for non-business purposes.
• You may set up the following types of bill payments:
• Single Payments—a payment to be made to a payee one time
• Recurring Payments—payments of fixed amounts to a single payee at recurring intervals (e.g., weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, annually or semi-annually).
All payments you make will be deducted from the account that you designate as your Bill Pay Account on the Payment Initiation Date. Any payments you wish to make through this Service must be payable in U.S. dollars to a payee located in the continental United States. We reserve the right to restrict or limit the number of transactions processed through this Service from time to time. Further, we reserve the right to check your credit history at enrollment and obtain follow up credit history reports at a later date.
You should not use the Bill Payment Service to make payments to settle securities purchases, payments to interest bearing accounts, tax payments, or court ordered payments (e.g., alimony or child support payments). Payments, additional fees, fines, penalties or other losses associated with payments to these payees that are delayed or improperly addressed or credited are your sole responsibility.
Funds must be available in your Bill Pay Account, including overdraft lines of credit, on the scheduled Payment Initiation Date. If the Payment Initiation Date falls on a non-Business Day (i.e., Saturday, Sunday or holiday), funds must be available in your Bill Pay Account the following Business Day (i.e., Monday). After funds are withdrawn from your Bill Pay Account to make a payment, we may make the payment either by transferring funds electronically to the payee or by mailing the payee a check.
If your Bill Pay Account does not have sufficient available funds to make a payment as of the Payment Initiation Date, the payment will be canceled and no further attempt will be made by Envision Bank to make the transfer or payment. Envision Bank will attempt to notify you by e-mail or U.S. Postal Mail, but Envision Bank shall have no obligation or liability if it does not complete a transfer or payment because there are insufficient available funds in your account to process a transaction. In all cases, you are responsible for either making alternate arrangements for the payment or rescheduling the payment through the Bill Payment Service. In the case of recurring payments, only the payment currently scheduled will be canceled. Recurring payments scheduled for future dates will not be affected. In the event you have sufficient funds to make some, but not all, of the bill payments scheduled for a particular payment date, Envision Bank may use such method as paying as many payments as possible in its sole discretion, may elect in determining which payments to complete.
You must schedule the Payment Initiation Date at least four (4) Business Days before any Payment Due Date (that is, the due date shown on your invoice or provided in your agreement with the payee, not taking into account any applicable grace period). If you do not, you will be fully responsible for all late fees, finance charges or other action taken by the payee. If the actual due date falls on a non-Business Day, you must select a scheduled payment date that is at least one (1) Business Day prior.
If the session during which you schedule a payment or transfer ends by 7:00 p.m. EST, Envision Bank will be considered to have received it on that day. Otherwise, it will be considered received the following Business Day. For all entries made using the service, the time recorded by the Online Banking service controls.
You may cancel or change a scheduled payment by using the payment screens in the Bill Payment Service. Payments must be changed or canceled using the Bill Payment Service prior to 7:00 p.m. EST on the Business Day the transaction will be initiated. If you ask us to cancel a payment after it is issued and we agree to do so, we will charge you a stop payment fee to stop the bill payment. Stop payment orders, whether oral, written, or electronic, will be in effect for a period of six months. If requested by Envision Bank, you will confirm any stop payment order in writing within 14 days. After six months, any stop payment will terminate and must be renewed to continue in effect. Envision Bank may pay any item that is presented following the lapse of any stop payment order.
BILL PAYMENT GUARANTEE
Envision Bank reserves the right to refuse any transaction if the Bank believes such refusal is necessary for security reasons, without any liability for damages or fees. However, if we do not properly complete a transfer to or from your account on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we will reimburse you for any late payment fees or penalties you are charged up to a maximum of $50.00 per scheduled payment. In order for you to be eligible for reimbursement, you must meet each of the following conditions:
• You must properly schedule the payment to be initiated on a date at least four (4) Business Days prior to the bill’s actual due date. This means that you must initiate a Single Payment before 7:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on a Business Day at least four (4) days prior to the bill’s actual due date. For recurring payments, this means that you must allow additional time for months in which weekends or holidays reduce the number of Business Days between the recurring Payment Initiation Date and the bill’s actual due date.
• You must provide us with the correct Payee name, address, phone number and account information, and with the correct payment amount.
• On the Payment Initiation Date your checking account must contain sufficient available funds, including overdraft lines of credit, to complete the payment.
• 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.
• The Service will not process any payments less than $1.00 or greater than $99,999.99
• You can schedule a Payment Due Date up to a year in advance.

USING YOUR CARD AND PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (“PIN”). In order to assist us in maintaining the security of your account and the terminals, the ATM Card or ENVISION BANK Debit MasterCard remains our property and may be revoked or canceled at any time without giving you prior notice.

Your ATM Card may only be used with your PIN. Certain transactions involving your ENVISION BANK Debit MasterCard require use of your PIN. Your PIN is used to identify you as an authorized user. Because the PIN is used for identification purposes, you agree to notify Envision Bank immediately if your ATM Card or ENVISION BANK Debit MasterCard is lost or if the secrecy of your PIN is compromised. You also agree not to reveal your PIN to any person not authorized by you to use your ATM Card or ENVISION BANK Debit MasterCard or to write your PIN on your ATM Card or ENVISION BANK Debit Master Card or on any other item kept with your ATM Card or ENVISION BANK Debit MasterCard. We have the right to refuse a transaction on your account when your ATM Card or ENVISION BANK Debit MasterCard or PIN has been reported lost or stolen or when we reasonably believe there is unusual activity on your account.
The security of your account depends upon your maintaining possession of your ATM Card or ENVISION BANK Debit MasterCard and the secrecy of your PIN. You may change your PIN if you feel that the secrecy of your PIN has been compromised. You may change your PIN by telephone or at any branch location.

POINT OF SALE TRANSACTIONS
You may use your ENVISION BANK Debit MasterCard to purchase goods and services from merchants that have arranged to accept your ENVISION BANK Debit MasterCard as a means of payment (these merchants are referred to as “Participating Merchants”). Some Participating Merchants may permit you to receive cash back as part of your purchase. Purchases made with your ENVISION BANK Debit MasterCard, including any purchase where you receive cash, are referred to as “Point of Sale” transactions and will cause your “designated account” to be debited for the amount of the purchase. The designated account for ENVISION BANK Debit MasterCard transactions is your checking account.
With your ENVISION BANK Debit MasterCard you may access your checking account(s) to purchase goods (in person, by telephone, or by computer).
In addition, your ENVISION BANK Debit MasterCard may be used at any merchant that accepts MasterCard® debit cards for the purchase of goods and services. Your card may also be used to obtain cash from your designated account at participating financial institutions.
Each time you use your ENVISION BANK Debit MasterCard, the amount of the transaction will be debited from your designated account. We have the right to return any check or other item drawn against your account to ensure there are funds available to pay for the ENVISION BANK Debit MasterCard transactions. We may, but do not have to, allow transactions which exceed your available account balance or available overdraft protection. If we do, you agree to pay the overdraft. You also agree to pay overdraft charges in effect from time to time for each transaction which causes your available account balance or available overdraft protection to be exceeded.
CURRENCY CONVERSION – MasterCard®. If you perform transactions with your card with the MasterCard® logo in a currency other than US dollars, MasterCard International, Inc., will convert the charge into a US dollar amount. At MasterCard International they use a currency conversion procedure, which is disclosed to institutions that issue MasterCard®. Currently the currency conversion rate used by MasterCard® International to determine the transaction amount in US dollars for such transactions is generally either a government mandated rate or wholesale rate, determined by MasterCard International for the processing cycle in which the transaction is processed, increased by an adjustment factor established from time to time by MasterCard International. The currency conversion rate used by MasterCard International on the processing date may differ from the rate that would have been used on the purchase date or the cardholder statement posting date.
IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL FEE NOTICE: When you use your debit card at a merchant that settles in currency other than U.S. dollars, the charge will be converted into the U.S. dollar amount. You will be charged a 1.00% currency conversion fee for the currency conversion. We have no control over either the exchange rate or the date or place of the exchange. Additionally, we have no control over any additional foreign currency conversion fee that may be charged by a particular card association or network. We may also employ additional security procedures if you use your card at a location outside the U.S.

TRANSACTION RECEIPTS. Depending on the owner of an ATM, you may not be given the option to receive a receipt if your transaction is less than $15.00. Upon completing a transaction of $15.00 or more, you will receive a printed receipt documenting the transaction (unless you choose not to get a paper receipt). These receipts (or the transaction number given in place of the paper receipt) should be retained to verify that a transaction was performed.

If the transaction was $15.00 or less, the Participating Merchant is not required to provide a receipt.
PERIODIC STATEMENTS. If your account is subject to receiving a monthly statement, all EFT transactions will be reported on it. If your account is subject to receiving a statement less frequently than monthly, then you will continue to receive your statement on that cycle, unless there are EFT transactions, in which case you will receive a monthly statement in any case you will receive your statement at least quarterly.
PREAUTHORIZED DEPOSITS. If you have arranged to have direct deposits made to your account at least once every 60 days from the same person or company:
• The person or company making the deposit will tell you every time they send us the money.
• You can call us at 877-963-2100 to find out whether or not the deposit has been made.
PASSBOOK ACCOUNTS. If the only type of electronic fund transactions are preauthorized deposits you will not receive a statement for your Passbook account. If you bring your Passbook to us, we will record any electronic deposits that were made to your account since the last time you brought in your Passbook. You will not receive a periodic statement noting these transactions on your Passbook account.
DOCUMENTATION AS EVIDENCE OF TRANSFER. Any documentation that is provided to you which indicates that an electronic fund transfer was made shall be admissible as evidence of such transfer and shall constitute prima facie proof that such transfer was made to another person.
RIGHTS REGARDING PREAUTHORIZED TRANSFERS

If you do not tell us within 60 days after the statement was transmitted to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 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.
CONSUMER LIABILITY FOR UNAUTHORIZED TRANSACTIONS INVOLVING ENVISION BANK DEBIT MASTERCARD
The limitations on your liability for unauthorized transactions described above generally apply to all electronic fund transfers. However, different limitations apply to certain transactions involving your card with the MasterCard® logo. These limits apply to unauthorized transactions processed on the MasterCard® network.
If you promptly notify us about an unauthorized transaction involving your card and the unauthorized transaction took place on your MasterCard branded card, including any PIN-based ATM or POS transactions, zero liability will be imposed on you for the unauthorized transaction. In order to qualify for zero liability protection, you must have exercised reasonable care in safeguarding your card from the risk of loss or theft and, upon becoming aware of such loss or theft, promptly reported the loss or theft to us. For commercial accounts, zero liability protection will only apply to transactions conducted with a card issued for commercial purpose under a “small business” program as described on www.mastercardbusiness.com (information found under “Small Business”, then select the “Products” tab).
ILLEGAL USE OF ENVISION BANK DEBIT MASTERCARD. You agree not to use your ENVISION BANK Debit MasterCard for any illegal transactions, including internet gambling and similar activities.
IN CASE OF ERRORS OR QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR TRANSACTIONS
In case of errors or questions about your electronic fund transfers,
call us at:
or write to:
10 Cabot Place
Stoughton, MA 02072
or e-mail us at email@example.com
or use the current information on your most recent account statement.
Notification should be made as soon as possible if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transaction listed on the statement or receipt. You must contact Envision Bank no later than 60 days after it sent you the first statement on which the problem or error appears. You must be prepared to provide the following information:
• Your name and account number.
• A description of the error or transaction you are unsure about along with an explanation as to why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.
• The dollar amount of the suspected error.
If you provide oral notice, you may be required to send in your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) business days.
We will determine whether an error occurred within ten (10) business days (twenty (20) business days for new accounts) after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to forty-five (45) days (ninety (90) days for new accounts and foreign initiated Point of Sale transfers) to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within ten (10) business days (twenty (20) days for new accounts) for the amount which you think is an error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within ten (10) business days, we may not credit your account. The extended time periods for new accounts apply to all electronic fund transfers that occur within the first thirty (30) days after the first deposit to the account is made, including those for foreign initiated or Point of Sale transactions.
We will tell you the results within three (3) business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation.
You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.
LIABILITY FOR FAILURE TO COMPLETE TRANSACTION
If we do not complete a transfer to or from your account on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages as provided by law. However, there are some exceptions. We will NOT be liable, for instance:
• If through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer.
• If the transfer would result in your exceeding the credit limit on your line of credit, if you have one.
• If the electronic terminal was not working properly and you knew about the breakdown before you started the transfer.
• If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood, computer or machine breakdown, or failure or interruption of communications facilities) prevent the transfer, despite reasonable precautions we have taken.
• If we have terminated our Agreement with you.
• When your ATM Card or ENVISION BANK Debit MasterCard has been reported lost or stolen or we have reason to believe that something is wrong with a transaction.
• If we receive inaccurate or incomplete information needed to complete a transaction.
• In the case of preauthorized transfers, we will not be liable where there is a breakdown of the system which would normally handle the transfer.
• If the funds in the account are subject to legal action preventing a transfer to or from your account.
• If the electronic terminal does not have enough cash to complete the transaction.
There may be other exceptions provided by applicable law.
CHARGES FOR TRANSFERS OR THE RIGHT TO MAKE TRANSFERS
Envision Bank is a member of the SUM ATM group, in which member banks waive ATM surcharge fees for the customers of other member banks. Depending on the type of account you have, you may be charged a fee from Envision Bank for using a non-Envision Bank ATM. Please refer to our Consumer Schedule of Fees.
DISCLOSURE OF ACCOUNT INFORMATION
You agree that the merchant authorization messages transmitted in connection with Point of Sale transactions are permissible disclosures of account information, and you further agree to release Envision Bank and hold it harmless from any liability arising out of the transmission of these messages.
We will disclose information to third parties about your account or electronic fund transfers made to your account:
• Where necessary to complete a transfer or to investigate and resolve errors involving the transfer(s); or
• In order to verify the existence and condition of your account for a third party such as a credit bureau or merchant; or
• To an attorney or collection agency employed by us; or
• In order to comply with government agency or court orders; or
• When the person is authorized to have access to our records as part of their official duties; or
• With your written consent that expires forty-five days after receipt by us.
PROTECTED CONSUMER USE
Chapter 167B of the Massachusetts General Laws was enacted to provide a means for financial institutions, businesses, and consumers to conduct their business relations more conveniently. Transferring funds electronically will supplement the use of checks, credit, and cash and will not replace these present methods of doing business. As a consumer, you should be aware of your rights if you choose to utilize this system.
1. Prohibition of compulsory use. No person may: require you to use a preauthorized electronic fund transfer as a condition of the extension of credit unless the credit is being extended in connection with an overdraft checking plan, or is being extended to maintain a specified balance in your account, or require you either to accept a transfer service or to establish an account, which is accessed electronically as conditions of employment or receipt of governmental benefit, or require you to pay electronically for the purchase of goods or services. If your account is to be credited by a preauthorized transfer you may choose the financial institution to which the transfer may be made, if the institution is technically capable of receiving the preauthorized transfer.
2. Waiver of rights. No writing or agreement signed by you can waive the rights conferred to you by Chapter 167B of the Massachusetts General Laws unless you decide to waive these rights in settlement of a dispute or action.
3. Refunds. If it is the policy of a store or retail business to give cash refunds in return for an item purchased by cash, then this policy must also cover refunds for items purchased by electronic fund transfer unless it is clearly disclosed at the time the transaction is consummated that no cash or credit refunds are given for payments made by electronic fund transfers.
4. Suspension of obligations. If a person agrees to accept payment by means of an electronic fund transfer and the system malfunctions preventing such a transfer, then the consumer’s obligation is suspended until the transfer can be completed, unless that person, in writing, demands payment by other means.
5. Prohibited means of identification. Your Social Security number cannot be used as the primary identification number although it can be used as a secondary aid to identify you.
6. Criminal liability. Procuring or using a card, code or other means of electronic access to an account with the intent to defraud is a basis for criminal liability.
DEFINITION OF BUSINESS DAY
Business days are Monday through Friday excluding holidays.
AMENDING OR TERMINATING THE AGREEMENT
We may change or amend any of the terms and conditions of the Agreement and those portions of the applicable fee schedules which relate to EFT services, at any time upon at least 30 days written notice to you prior to the effective date of the change or amendment. Your failure to timely furnish notice as set forth in the written notice shall be deemed to be your acceptance of such change or amendment. If you do not agree to abide by a change or amendment, you must notify Envision Bank of the fact prior to the effective date of the change or amendment and cancel this Agreement. Envision Bank may cancel this Agreement at any time, without giving you prior notice. If you or Envision Bank cancels this Agreement at any time, you shall surrender any card and you may no longer use any of Envision Bank’s EFT services other than automated clearing house transfer services.
TERMINATION. You may terminate your right to any of the services that you have agreed to under this Agreement by giving us written notice. For preauthorized transfers, you must terminate any agreement authorizing transfers to or from your account by notifying the person or company initiating the transfer. You will remain obligated to us under this Agreement for all of your transactions, even if they occur or are completed after this Agreement has ended. Termination of your electronic fund transfer service does not terminate your account(s) with us. Closing the account to which the service relates simultaneously terminates your electronic fund transfer service. We may terminate any of the services that have been agreed to under this Agreement for any reason and at any time without prior notice to you. If the account is a joint account, any owner of the account may terminate this Agreement, and the termination will apply to all joint owners on the account. If either you or we terminate your services under this agreement, we will no longer have to complete any of your electronic fund transfers.
NOTICE OF ATM SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR ATM TERMINAL USAGE. Please keep in mind the following basic safety tips whenever you use an ATM:
• Have your ATM or ENVISION BANK Debit MasterCard ready to use when you reach the ATM. Have all of your forms ready before you get to the machine. Keep some extra forms (envelopes) at home for this purpose.
• If you are new to ATM usage, use machines close to or inside a financial institution until you become comfortable and can conduct your usage quickly.
• If using an ATM in an isolated area, take someone else with you if possible. Have them watch from the car as you conduct your transaction.
• Do not use ATMs at night unless the area and machine are well-lighted. If the lights are out, go to a different location.
• If someone else is using the machine you want to use, stand back or stay in your car until the machine is free. Watch out for suspicious people lurking around ATMs, especially during the times that few people are around.
• When using the machine, stand so you block anyone else’s view from behind.
• If anything suspicious occurs when you are using a machine, cancel what you are doing and leave immediately. If going to your car, lock your doors.
• Do not stand at the ATM counting cash. Check that you received the right amount later in a secure place, and reconcile it to your receipt then.
• Keep your receipts and verify transactions on your account statement. Report errors immediately. Do not leave receipts at an ATM location.
Your account is also governed by the terms and conditions of other applicable agreements between you and Envision Bank.
You agree not to reveal your PIN to any person not authorized by you to access your account.
