General Terms:

As a participant (“you,” or “your”) in the Old Second Mobile Deposit Service (this “Service”), these terms and conditions (“Service Terms”) and any other terms we furnish to you in connection with the Service becomes a part of your Terms and Conditions of Your Account (as may be amended or supplemented from time to time, the “Account Agreement”, and collectively referred to with the Service Terms as this “Agreement”) between you and Old Second National Bank (the “Bank,” “we,” “our,” or “us”).  In the event of a conflict between the terms of these Service Terms and the terms of the Account Agreement, these Service Terms will govern. By clicking the “I agree to the terms and conditions” button below or by using or continuing to use the Service, you agree to the terms contained herein.

We may add, delete or amend terms and other provisions, service charges or other terms described in this Agreement.  We will send written notice to you if required by applicable law.  You agree that all notices or other communications we are required to provide to you may be sent to you by e‑mail messaging electronically or by regular mail, or we may post changed terms on our website.  Please access and review the website regularly.  Unless you terminate the Service before the effective date of the amendment, you are bound by any such change to this Agreement.

This Service will allow you to use your compatible smart phone or tablet device (“Mobile Device”) to take a picture of the front and back of your paper check (“Item”) to be deposited with us. You must obtain and maintain, at your expense, compatible hardware and software as specified by us from time to time on the Service website.  See Mobile Deposit FAQ for current hardware and software specifications.  You will also be required to download and install the Service application (the “Application”) to your Mobile Device through your wireless service provider.

O2 Mobile Deposit Service:

The Service allows you to make certain deposits electronically by using a Mobile Device to create an electronic image of an Item by photographing the Item and transmitting it and related data to us. You are solely responsible for the information or data that is transmitted. Before you create an electronic image of any Item, you shall properly endorse all Items and provide the legend “For Mobile Deposit Only”.  Any item submitted for deposit without this endorsement will not be accepted.

The images of qualifying Items you send us must be sufficiently inclusive and high quality to permit us to satisfy all pertinent requirements of the following: industry requirements established and updated by the ANSI or automated clearinghouse association, the Check 21 Act, 12 USC 5001, et seq.; all related laws or regulations and all other state or federal laws and regulations.

Handling and Storage of Items:

You agree that the electronic image of the Item or any substitute check, as defined by federal law, shall be the legal representation of the Item for all purposes, including returned items processing.  The Bank may return or refuse to accept all or any part of your deposit to your account through this Service at any time and will not be liable for doing so, even if this action causes outstanding checks or debits to your account to be dishonored or returned.

You agree that after the Item has been submitted for deposit, you will not otherwise transfer or negotiate the original Item, substitute check or any other image used for deposit again in any way, whether in person, electronically, or otherwise negotiated or transferred to another party. You also agree that none of the electronic Items submitted are duplicates of any original or electronic Item already submitted or paid by any depository bank, drawee, drawer, or endorser. Items submitted by you through this Service shall be original Items, payable to you in United States dollars and drawn on a United States bank.

You must retain the original Item in a secure environment that ensures confidentiality and integrity of the check information for at least 60 days after you transmit the electronic Item to the Bank. If requested, you agree to provide the original Item to the Bank. Only in the case of an image quality problem or other technical issues can a check be submitted for redeposit, and ONLY at the direction of the Bank. Upon expiration of this time period, you are responsible for preventing future negotiability of original Items by assuring that shredding, incinerating or other appropriate means properly and completely destroys them.

You acknowledge the Bank has a cut-off time as follows: Bank’s business days are Monday through Friday, excluding federal holidays. The Bank’s cut-off time for receipt of the electronic Items will be 7:00 pm CT. If the deposit is received after 7:00 pm CT, or on a day that is not a business day, we will consider the deposit received on the next business day. However, these deadlines will not apply if the Bank is prevented from processing due to equipment or electronic failures or any other condition beyond reasonable control of the Bank.  Bank will send a confirmation to you via the e-mail address provided indicating the electronic image of the deposited Item has been accepted for processing.  However, receipt of the confirmation from us does not mean that the transmission was error‑free or complete.  You understand and agree that funds from Items deposited under this Service are not subject to Federal Reserve Board Regulation CC (availability of funds).  Our Funds Availability Disclosure does not apply when you transmit the electronic images of Items to us.  Funds from deposits made through this Service generally will be available for withdrawals by within two (2) business days.

In the event Bank accepts a deposit to your account through this Service that does not comply with the provisions of this Agreement, such action will not constitute a waiver of the Bank’s deposit requirements. You acknowledge that acceptance of any such non-complying deposit does not obligate the Bank to accept future non-complying deposits.

Limitations and Fees of the Service:

The maximum amount of deposits for this Service for Level 1 will be $2,000 per day and $7,500 per calendar month. Level 1 customers using this Service will also be limited to depositing 20 items per calendar month. The maximum amount of deposits for Level 2 customers who utilize this Service will be $5,000 per day and $10,000 per calendar month. Level 2 users will be limited to depositing 40 items per calendar month.

Currently, there is no charge for this Service. However, the Bank reserves the right to charge a fee at anytime in the future after providing 30 days advance notice, if required.

All users will be charged a $1 per Item fee for any Item that is approved as an exception to exceed the number of monthly Items allowed. These fees will be charged to your account at the time of the excess deposit.

You are responsible for all applicable fees and charges imposed by your wireless provider, including any message or data rates.  Bank may waive or amend any of these limitations at any time at its sole good faith discretion.
