SECTION D: RESERVED.
SECTION E: ADDITIONAL TERMS APPLICABLE TO ELECTRONIC FUND TRANSFERS AND THE SERVICES
1. YOU MAY REQUEST THE SERVICES FROM US BY COMPLETING AN APPLICATION. By signing a paper Application or transmitting an Application to us over the Internet, you are representing that all of the information in it is true and correct. If you submit a written application to support your request for the Services, we will keep the original or an electronic image of it. Your Application is subject to our review and approval. If we approve the application, we will send the requested Security Code to the physical postal address or e-mail address currently in our records.
2. AGREEMENT. By using any of the Services and/or by making Electronic Fund Transfers, you agree to all of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement.
3. CONSUMER AND SOLE PROPRIETOR USE ONLY. The Services are not specifically designed or intended for business or commercial purposes. Therefore, you may only use the Services for personal, family and household purposes, or for the business transactions we authorize for Sole Proprietors from time to time, and may not use the Services for any other commercial purpose, including but not limited to making transfers or payments on behalf of any other person or entity. If you are a Sole Proprietor, you understand and agree that, when you use the Services and make Electronic Fund Transfers for non-Consumer purposes by using one or more business checking and savings Accounts as your Designated Accounts, our obligations and the limitations on Consumer liability, as set forth in the SECTION titled “CONSUMER ERRORS, DISPUTES, AND LOST/STOLEN SECURITY CODES” below, do not apply to the transfers and payments you make to and from your business checking and savings Accounts, and those transfers and payments will be governed by the provisions of the SECTION titled “CONSUMER ERRORS, DISPUTES, AND LOST/STOLEN SECURITY CODES” below.
4. TIMING AND LIMITS OF ELECTRONIC FUND TRANSFERS. Unless a different time is specified in this Agreement, all Electronic Fund Transfer requests must be received by 11 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time in order for the transfer to be completed on that Business Day. We do not limit the frequency or dollar amount of your Electronic Fund Transfers, except to the extent stated in this Agreement or disclosed through the Services.
5. SECURITY CODE LIMITATIONS. You may only use the Security Code for the purposes described in this Agreement to the extent the law allows and to the extent the particular Service is able to perform the transaction. You agree not to use the Security Code to: (a) Make a withdrawal of cash from your Designated Account which exceeds the maximum daily withdrawal limits under this Agreement; (b) Initiate an Electronic Fund Transfer which would cause the balance of collected funds in your Designated Account to go below zero; or (c) Initiate an Electronic Fund Transfer affecting any Account which is not your Designated Account. If you do any of these things, we may complete the transaction but we are not required to do so. If we do so, you agree to pay us any excess or improperly withdrawn or transferred amount immediately upon request. We reserve the right to limit the number and amount of Electronic Fund Transfers. We may also limit or refuse to complete an Electronic Fund Transfer if necessary for security reasons.
6. LINE OF CREDIT ADVANCE LIMITATIONS. To the extent available, you may obtain advances from your Line of Credit Accounts, except for your CoverCheck Accounts, through the Services. Such advances must be transferred into one or more of your Deposit Accounts. All advances on your Line of Credit Accounts are subject to any minimum draw and other transaction requirements contained in the applicable Account agreements. If your Line of Credit Accounts include one or more Home Equity CreditLine, Equity FlexLine, Home EquityLine or Private BankLine Accounts, you are not required to use the Service to obtain advances from those Accounts, and you may still use any other method to obtain advances that is permitted in the Account Agreements for those Accounts.
7. DEPOSIT ACCOUNT TRANSFER LIMITATIONS.
(a) Transfers from your checking and savings Account may not be completed if you do not have sufficient available funds in your Account to do so, if the funds in your checking or savings Account are subject to legal process or other encumbrances restricting the transfer, or if the funds in your Accounts are subject to a hold on the funds pursuant to our current hold policy. If you do not have sufficient available funds on deposit to cover a transfer of funds from your Deposit Account, we may reject the transfer without payment. We may elect, however, in our sole discretion, to create an overdraft by allowing the transfer. Please see the FEE SCHEDULE for Personal Checking and Savings Accounts for applicable fees.
(b) You may not transfer funds from any of your savings Accounts which are pledged as collateral for loans you have with us or a third-party. You may not use the Services to close or renew your time deposit Accounts or transfer funds to and from your time deposit Accounts.
8. ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This Agreement, along with the agreements for your Accounts (the “Account Agreements”), including but not limited to our current Check Hold Policy and Fee Schedule, as well as Applications and any other terms and conditions referenced in this Agreement constitute the complete and exclusive agreement between you and us related to Electronic Fund Transfers using the Cards and the Services. You also agree to be bound by any express limitations and restrictions regarding the Services at www.boh.com, and you further agree that product descriptions, explanations of Services, Frequently Asked Questions, glossary of terms and helpful hints provided at www.boh.com are provided for your convenience only.
9. AMENDMENT OF ACCOUNT AGREEMENTS.
(a) You agree that this Agreement amends the agreements for your Accounts.
(b) Regardless of any Account Agreement language to the contrary, you authorize us to debit or credit your Account as appropriate for the total amount of the electronic payment you initiate through Bill Pay, and/or any other Electronic Fund Transfer you authorize. Each Electronic Fund Transfer debit entry will have the same legal effect as a written withdrawal on an account. Each Electronic Fund Transfer credit entry will have the same legal effect as a deposit to an account. By using the e-Bankoh Bill Pay Service to electronically direct us to make payments to Payees, you agree that you are authorizing us to debit the amount of those payments from your Payment Account and transfer the payments to your Payees on your behalf without your signature and without prior notice to you.
(c) In the event of a conflict between this Agreement, the Account Agreements, any statement by our employees or agents, or any representation or statement relating to or set forth in the Services as to matters relating to the Services, then this Agreement shall control. To the extent that any terms and conditions of this Agreement are inconsistent with the Account Agreements, the Account Agreements are amended. These amendments will automatically terminate if this Agreement and the Services are terminated, and from that time the Account Agreements will remain in effect without the amendments made in this Agreement. Except for amendments specifically made by this Agreement, all of the terms and conditions of the Account Agreements, including but not limited to the provisions on waiver of jury, and the Fair Credit Reporting Act, remain unchanged and in full force and effect.
10. JOINT AND INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY AND AUTHORITY. If your Account is affected by an Electronic Fund Transfer and is a joint account, then each of you will be bound by this Agreement and each of you will be individually and jointly responsible for paying all amounts owed under this Agreement. In addition, unless prohibited or restricted by applicable law, you acknowledge and agree that each one of you is fully authorized to take any and all actions related to an Electronic Fund Transfer on behalf of all of you, including but not limited to obtaining, using and terminating Security Codes, and for initiating Electronic Fund Transfers to and from your Designated Account.
11. TWO SIGNATURE LIMITATIONS. The signature cards for your Deposit Accounts, and the application, resolution or other related documents for your Credit Accounts identify who is authorized to make Transfers, obtain advances, stop payments, obtain ancillary services, and otherwise give us instructions regarding your Designated Accounts. Although those documents may indicate that more than one signature is required on checks, for the withdrawal or transfer of funds, or to obtain a credit advance, that notation is principally for your own purposes. We do not assume a duty to support multiple signature requirements in connection with the Services. As such, we assume no duty to confirm that two or more (or any combination) of authorized signers on an Account are Authorized Users and/or have approved any transaction.
12. STATEMENTS. Information on all of the Electronic Fund Transfers and Bill Pay payments made by use of the Services during a particular month will appear on the periodic statement for the affected Accounts. The periodic statements for your Accounts prepared by us (your “Account Statements”) are the official statements for your Accounts. You agree to promptly check and carefully review your Account Statements and compare your Account Statements with any statements obtained through the Services for your Accounts. If there are discrepancies between your Account Statements and any statements obtained through the Services, you should contact us at the telephone number or address in SECTION A.
13. FEES/CHARGES. You agree to pay on demand all Service Fees that we may charge for or in connection with the issuance and use of the Security Codes, or the Services. The current fees/charges for the Services are listed at the end of this Agreement. We may change those fees from time to time, and we will provide you with notice of such change as required by applicable law. Unless otherwise indicated, we may deduct the amount of the fees/charges from your Designated Account. If your Designated Account is a checking Account, you will pay to us on demand any debit balance in your Designated Account caused by the deduction of fees/charges or Electronic Fund Transfers, along with any overdraft charges.
15. ATTORNEYS' FEES. If we ever have to file a lawsuit to collect what you owe us, you agree to pay our reasonable expenses, including our attorneys' fees and costs.
16. YOUR SECURITY CODE. You are responsible for the confidentiality and use of your Security Code and any transactions initiated with your Security Code. You should not write your Security Code down at all, but if you do, do not write it any place where it may be found and used to access the Services. If you disclose your Security Code to someone, you are authorizing him or her to access your Designated Accounts and to do anything that you could do at any time, even if you only intend to authorize him or her to perform a specific transaction.
17. DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION.
(a) By submitting an Application, you authorize us to verify the information it contains. If you agree as part of a written Application, we may receive and exchange information about you, both now and in the future. If you use the Bill Pay Service, you agree that we may obtain information regarding your Payee Accounts in order to facilitate proper handling and crediting of your payments.
(b) We will disclose information to third parties about your Accounts with us for the Electronic Fund Transfers you make:(i) Where it is necessary for completing an Electronic Fund Transfer; or (ii) In order to verify the existence and condition of your Account for a third party, such as a credit bureau, Biller or merchant; or (iii) In order to comply with governmental agency or court order; or (iv) If you give us your written permission; or (v) To our affiliates or third parties for marketing or other legitimate business purpose, to the extent permitted by applicable law.
(c) Please refer to our Privacy Statement for additional information about our responsibility to protect the privacy of your personal financial information.
18. RECORDING OF COMMUNICATIONS. When you access any of the Services or otherwise communicate with us, the Bill Payment, Transfer, Account inquiry, e-mail or other information you enter or speak may be recorded for confirmation or quality assurance purposes. By using any of the Services, you consent to such recording.
19. SERVICE EQUIPMENT. You are responsible for obtaining, installing, maintaining, and operating any telephone, Computer and other electronic and telecommunication devices you use in connection with the Services. We will not be responsible for any errors or failures from the malfunction or failure of the electronic and telecommunication equipment you use to access the Services.
20. SERVICE OUTAGES. Although the Services are usually available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at certain times such as during maintenance periods, some or all of the Services may not be available.
21. EXCLUSIONS OF WARRANTIES. YOU AGREE THAT WE ARE PROVIDING THE SERVICES ON AN “AS IS” BASIS WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
22. SUSPENDING, BLOCKING OR TERMINATING THE SERVICES.
(a) You may terminate your use of any Service at any time by calling us or writing to us at the telephone number or address in SECTION A. If you terminate your use of the Services, you agree to provide us with ten (10) Business Days prior written notice. In addition, before you terminate the Services, you must separately cancel all your checking and savings Accounts transfers, and Line of Credit Account transfers and/or Bill Pay payments you scheduled through the Services. If you do not cancel them before you terminate the Services, those transfers and payments may still be made.
(b) We may suspend or terminate your use of any of the Services, or your ability to make other Electronic Fund Transfers, or block a transaction or payment that you have scheduled using any of the Services, at any time for any reason without prior notice. Your access to the Services may, for example, be terminated if your Accounts are closed for any reason, or we believe your Accounts and/or the Services are being used improperly or illegally. We may also terminate your use of the Services if you do not sign on to the Services using your e-Bankoh user name and password for a continuous period of three (3) months. Although we are not obligated to do so, we may block a scheduled transaction or payment, if, for example, we have reason to believe that it is not in our or your best interest for the payment or the transaction to be made. In addition, the Bill Pay Service may be terminated if you do not schedule a payment for a continuous period of three (3) months, your Payment Account is closed, there are insufficient funds in your Payment Account to process the payment and either you do not have a CoverCheck or business overdraft account or the available CoverCheck or business overdraft account credit limit is insufficient to cover the amount of the payment, or if access to your Payment Account is restricted for any reason. Whether you terminate this Agreement or we do, the termination will not affect your obligations under this Agreement, even if we allow any Electronic Fund Transfer to be completed after this Agreement has been terminated. You will be responsible for any Service Fees which have not been posted to your Designated Account. Termination will not affect your liability or obligations under this Agreement for Electronic Fund Transfers we process on your behalf. However, termination will result in a loss of transaction history information about your Accounts and Bill Pay Payee information stored on the Services.
23. CHANGING THIS AGREEMENT. We may change, delete, or add to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and make changes, deletions, or additions to the Services at any time by notifying you of the change by sending you a notice by U.S. Mail, sending a notice to your e-mail address, or by posting the changed terms on the Services, or any other means permitted by applicable law. If you do not agree to the change or amendment, you must notify us prior to the effective date of the change or amendment, stop making Electronic Fund Transfers, and cancel your use of the Services. By maintaining your e-Bankoh Service after the effective date of any amendment, change or addition to this Agreement for the Services, you agree to that amendment, change or addition.
24. NOTICES. All notices from us will be effective when we have mailed them or delivered them to the last address that we have for you in our records. Notices from you will generally be effective once we receive them at the appropriate address specified in SECTION A. If more than one person signed your Application, notice to or from one of the individuals who signed the Application will be effective for everybody who signed it.
25. ASSIGNMENT. You may not assign your rights or obligations under this Agreement to any other person. We may assign this Agreement or delegate any or all of our rights and responsibilities under this Agreement to any affiliate or third party.
26. WAIVER. No delay or omission by us in exercising any rights or remedies there under shall impair such right or remedy or be construed as a waiver of any such right or remedy. Any single or partial exercise of a right or remedy shall not preclude further exercise therefore or the exercise of any other right or remedy. No waiver shall be valid unless in writing signed by us.
27. CREDIT REPORTING. If you believe that we may have reported inaccurate information about your Designated Account, or your Electronic Fund Transfers to a consumer reporting agency, write to your branch of account whose address is provided on the front of your Designated Account Statement or call our 24-Hour Bankoh by Phone customer service center (numbers provided in SECTION A). Please include an identification of the information and why you feel it is inaccurate.
28. SEVERABILITY. If any provision of the Application or this Agreement is determined to be void or invalid, the remainder of either the Application or this Agreement, as the case may be, shall remain in full force and effect.
29. WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. You and we each waive our respective rights to a trial before a jury in connection with any disputes related to your Accounts and the Services. This includes any claims by us or by you, claims brought by you as a class representative on behalf of others and claims by a class representative on your behalf as a class member (so-called “class action” suits).
30. GOVERNING LAW. You acknowledge and agree that this Agreement was created in the State of Hawaii. Therefore, except as previously agreed to in the Account Agreements, this Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Hawaii. If any term of this Agreement cannot legally be enforced, this Agreement is to be considered changed to the extent necessary to comply with the law.
31. FORCE MAJEURE.

SECTION F: CONSUMER ERRORS, DISPUTES, AND LOST/STOLEN SECURITY CODES
1. IN CASE OF ERRORS OR QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR ELECTRONIC FUND TRANSFERS. In case of errors or questions about your Electronic Fund Transfers, or if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about an Electronic Fund Transfer listed on the statement or receipt, contact us at the appropriate telephone number and address listed in SECTION A as soon as you can. We must hear from you no later than 60 calendar days after we sent you the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.
(a) Tell us your name and your account number;
(b) Describe the error or the Electronic Fund Transfer you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information; and
(c) Tell us the date and dollar amount of the suspected error.
If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 Business Days. We will tell you the results of our investigation within 10 Business Days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 calendar days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will provisionally credit your Designated Account within the 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 provisionally credit your Designated Account.
For errors involving point-of-sale, or transfers initiated outside the United States, we may take up to 90 calendar days instead of 45 calendar days to investigate your complaint or question.
If the error involves a transfer to or from an account within 30 calendar days of the first deposit, we may take up to 20 Business Days instead of 10 Business Days to issue provisional credit, and up to 90 calendar days instead of 45 calendar days to investigate your complaint or question.
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 a written explanation and a notice of your right to request copies of the documents that we used in our investigation. In addition, if we provisionally credited your Designated Account, we will also notify you that the credit has been reversed and that we will honor up to the amount in dispute, any checks, drafts or other similar instruments drawn on your Designated Account without imposing any overdraft charges, and any preauthorized Electronic Fund Transfers from your Designated Account for a period of 5 Business Days after our notice of reversal is sent to you, or provide you notice that the credit will be reversed in 5 Business Days.
2. OUR LIABILITY FOR FAILING TO COMPLETE YOUR ELECTRONIC FUND TRANSFERS. If we do not complete an Electronic Fund Transfer to or from your Designated Account on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages.

(a) If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your Designated Account to make the Electronic Fund Transfer or if the Electronic Fund Transfer will exceed your available balance;
(b) If you have exceeded or will exceed your daily transaction limit for a particular Service, in which case, we have the right to process payments or transfers in any order that we determine in our sole discretion is appropriate;
(c) If, through no fault of ours, we have not actually received enough money to cover an electronic deposit from a third party;

3. LOSS OF YOUR SECURITY CODE; YOUR LIABILITY FOR UNAUTHORIZED ELECTRONIC FUND TRANSFERS. You must tell us AT ONCE if you believe your Security Code has been lost or stolen. Telephoning is the best way of reducing your possible losses. You could lose all the money in your Designated Accounts. If you tell us within two (2) Business Days, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your Security Code without your permission. If you do NOT tell us within two (2) Business Days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Security Code and we can prove we could have stopped someone from accessing your account without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500. If your Account statement shows Electronic Fund Transfers that you did not make, you must tell us AT ONCE. If you do not tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement was mailed or delivered 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.
SECTION G: SOLE PROPRIETOR ERRORS, DISPUTES AND LOST/STOLEN SECURITY CODE
1. LOST OR STOLEN SECURITY CODE. If you believe your Security Code has been lost or stolen, you must change your Security Code immediately. If you believe your Security Code has been lost or stolen and you cannot remember your Security Code, you must notify us at ONCE by telephoning us at the telephone number listed in SECTION A above. However, if you initially notify us by telephone we will change your Security Code, but, you must promptly confirm your notice in writing. In all cases, you will continue to be liable for all transactions initiated by use of the Services until you change your Security Code or you request us to do so and we change your Security Code.

We will have no obligation to re-credit your Designated Account for the amount of any erroneous or unauthorized Account transfer, or the Payment Account for the amount of any erroneous or unauthorized Bill Pay payment unless caused by our negligence. If we determine that no error or unauthorized use has occurred, you may request us to mail or deliver copies to you of the documents or information on which we relied in making our determination.

We also have the right to deny all transfers and Bill Pay payments. We also will have the right to terminate, freeze and enforce any applicable security interest against the Payment Account and your other Deposit Accounts, and we may refuse to authorize any further transactions by use of the Services. Our failure to take action or exercise any remedy on one occasion will not amount to a waiver of future remedial rights on any other occasion.
2. SETOFF. We reserve our right of set-off against any obligation we owe you, such as the balance in the Payment Account, your Deposit Accounts and any other deposit accounts you maintain with us in the future. You agree that we may set-off and enforce any applicable security interest without prior notice to you.
3. DAMAGES, ATTORNEYS' FEES, COSTS AND INTEREST. You will be liable for any loss or damages resulting from your breach of this Agreement or to which your negligence contributed.

In the event we take any legal action under this Agreement in addition to or instead of arbitration proceedings to collect overdrafts on the Payment Account or any other amounts you owe us, or because you break any other promise under this Agreement, or if we become involved in any other litigation or proceeding initiated by a third-party, including but not limited to our responding to an attachment, garnishment or levy with respect to the Payment Account, you agree to reimburse us for any costs and expenses we incur, including, but not limited to, our reasonable attorneys' fees, together with interest at the maximum interest rate allowed by law, and you further agree that we may charge those amounts against the Payment Account without prior notice to you.
4. SOLE PROPRIETORS AND OUR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. If you are a Sole Proprietor and you use a business checking and/or business savings Account as a Designated Account, our liability for any act or failure to act shall not exceed any direct resulting loss, if any, which you incur and payment of interest. Unless otherwise required by law, we will not be liable for any consequential, indirect or special damage that you incur in connection with your transfers and Bill Pay payments you make through the Services, even if we are aware of the possibility for such damages. We will not be liable for any failure or delay in processing a transfer or Bill Pay payment which occurs, directly or indirectly, as a result of any strike or labor dispute, interruption of communication facilities, computer or equipment failure, fire, flood, war, riot, emergency condition, the actions or omissions of third parties, or any cause which is beyond our reasonable control. You agree that we may refuse to process or delay processing any transfer or Bill Pay payment if the transfer or Bill Pay payment would violate any guideline, rule, policy, law or regulation of any government authority or funds transfer system.
5. INDEMNIFICATION. With respect to all claims of third parties, you agree to reimburse and indemnify us or, and hold us harmless against any loss, liability, claim or controversy of any kind arising out of or in connection with the performance by us of our duties and obligations under this Agreement, as well as the costs and expenses (including but not limited to reasonable attorneys' fees), of defending against any claim or liability arising out of or relating to this Agreement; provided, however, that your responsibility to reimburse and indemnify us shall not apply when we have failed to act in accordance with the reasonable commercial standards of the banking industry.
