All such transactions are subject to all applicable agreements, rules and regulations of Bank's checking accounts and savings accounts for which Access Device use or preauthorized transfers are authorized, now or in the future, as said agreements, rules and regulation are now in effect or as they may hereafter be amended, modified, or adopted.

If you tell us within two business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Access Device, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone used your Access Device without your permission.
If you do NOT tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft or your Access Device, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your Access Device 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 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.
