OUR SERVICES

5. Account Balance and Transaction Information

You can use the Service to obtain account balance and transaction information anytime of the day, seven days a week, except when our system is unavailable for maintenance or other reasons. Please note that the information provided may not include recent transactions and may include funds that are not subject to immediate withdrawal.

We assume no responsibility for any loss arising from incomplete information or for any temporary interruption in our information system. If you are unable to access our system for any reason, you can contact your branch of account during regular business hours for loan and deposit information or call 800-922-8429 for automated account information.

6. Fund Transfers

You may make transfers between your eligible accounts with us. You may also transfer funds between your accounts with us and accounts you maintain at other U.S. financial institutions.

Eligible Accounts.  Transfers may be made only to and from accounts in the United States, and only in U.S. dollars. Transfers cannot be made to or from time deposit accounts. We reserve the right to determine which accounts may be linked to the Service and, at our discretion, may refuse to allow certain accounts to be used with the Service. You may not make fund transfers to accounts you maintain at other financial institutions until those accounts have been set up and verified in your online banking profile. To do this you must log on to our online banking service. Set up for accounts you maintain at other financial institutions may require you to verify one or more micro-deposits or withdrawals made to those accounts. You agree to not use the Service for transfers to or from accounts maintained at other financial institutions unless you are an account holder on those accounts. Depending on the transfer type and your actions, it may take several days for accounts at other financial institutions to be set up and verified. You will see when those accounts are eligible for fund transfers in your online banking profile. NOTE: You cannot use your mobile device to set up your online banking profile to include accounts you maintain at other financial institutions.

Important Notice regarding Transfers from a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC). Funds transferred from your HELOC are considered advances on your credit line. There are no Loan Advance Transaction Fees charged when drawing from your HELOC account. However, each advance you request from your HELOC will accrue Interest Charges from the date the funds are transferred from the HELOC to your checking or savings account. For more information on your Loan advances, please refer to your Loan account agreement or statement.

Scheduling Fund Transfers.  You may instruct us to transfer funds on any business day (the “Transfer Date”), up to 365 days in advance. We may require that you schedule your fund transfer up to two business days before the Transfer Date. We may refuse any instruction to make a fund transfer before the earliest available Transfer Date. Note: You cannot use your mobile device to schedule transfers to or from accounts you maintain at other financial institutions.

Fund transfers are processed only Monday through Friday. Any request made on a weekend, holiday, or after 10:00 p.m. Pacific Time (4:00 p.m. Pacific Time for transfers involving your accounts at other financial institutions) on a business day may be processed on the following business day. You are responsible for scheduling fund transfers to be made in a timely manner.

We will not be responsible for delays that occur in the automated clearing house or for any action or omission by you or other financial institutions.

You agree that we may charge or place a hold against your account for the amount of your funds transfer up to two business days prior to the Transfer Date. You will receive a confirmation code at the time that you set up each online fund transfer.

Funds transferred from your account at another financial institution are generally credited to your account with us on the Transfer Date, but may not be available until we receive final settlement. This may take up to two business days. If final settlement does not occur within that time, we may reverse the credit to your account.

Transactions posted to your account as of a certain business day may not be reflected in account balances reported by the Service until the following business day. Information on transfers to or from your accounts with us will be reflected on your periodic statements, will be available to you online, and can be obtained by calling our automated line at 800-922-8429. We do not provide any other notice of the receipt, transmittal or debiting of funds transfers.

Initiating Automatic Recurring Transfers.  You may use the Service to make regularly recurring transfers in the same amount between the same accounts. Once your arrangements are set, we will transfer funds automatically at the intervals you designate. If the Transfer Date for an automatic transfer falls on a weekend or holiday, the transfer may be sent the following business day. If the Transfer Date is scheduled for a day that does not exist for a particular month (e.g., February 30th), the transfer will be send on the last business day of that month. NOTE: You cannot set up recurring transfers using your mobile device.

Erroneous Transfer Instructions.  You assume sole responsibility for accurately describing transfer amounts, accounts, financial institutions, and addresses. We are not responsible for confirming such information, or for monitoring or refusing to process duplicate transfer instructions. If you give us a transfer instruction that is incorrect in any way, you agree that we may charge your account for the transfer whether or not the error could have been detected by us. We are not obligated to detect errors in your transfer instructions.

Rejecting Transfer Instructions.  We may reject transfer instructions with or without cause or prior notice. For example, we may reject a transfer instruction if you do not have sufficient available funds to cover the transfer or if you exceed the limitations on dollar amounts and/or number of transactions. Unless you have requested email or text message alerts for rejected transfer instructions, we generally will not notify you when a transfer instruction is rejected by us. If you wish to receive alerts for rejected transfer instructions, you must select that option under “Manage Alerts” in the Customer Service tab.  Please see “E-Statement and Alert Delivery” below for additional terms that apply to email and text message alerts. Otherwise, you should confirm whether the instruction was accepted by reviewing your online account activity on the business day following the scheduled transfer date. If we reject a transfer, you will need to re-enter the information if you wish to make the transfer at a later date.

Changing or Cancelling Transfer Instructions.  You can cancel or change a transfer request electronically by deleting or changing the transfer instruction from the transfer screen in our online banking website. To do this, you must act before 10:00 p.m. Pacific Time (4:00 p.m. Pacific Time for transfers involving your accounts at other financial institutions) on the business day before the Transfer Date. Note: You cannot cancel or change transfers using your mobile device.

If you have told us in advance to make regular transfers from your account, you can cancel or change these transfers by (1) deleting or changing your transfer instructions electronically at our online banking website, or (2) calling us at 800-922-8429 or writing to us at: Cathay Bank, Attn: Customer Service Department, 9650 Flair Drive RS-02, El Monte, CA 91731. To cancel or change your transfer instructions by telephone or mail, we must receive your request at least three business days before the Transfer Date. (Note: If you give us your request by telephone or mail and we do not receive it at least three business days prior to the Transfer Date, we may attempt, at our sole discretion, to cancel the funds transfer. We assume no responsibility for our failure or refusal to do so, even if we accept the request for processing.) If you call, we may also require you to put your request in writing and get it to us within 14 days after you call. If we do not receive written confirmation within 14 days, we may treat your verbal instruction as no longer binding. If you order us to cancel one of these transfers at least three business days before the Transfer Date and we do not do so, we will be liable for your losses or damages.

Limitations. Fund transfers from your accounts at other financial institutions are subject to the following limits: $5,000 per transaction, $5,000 per business day, and $6,000 per calendar month. These transfers are also limited to a maximum of 2 transactions per business day and 20 transactions during any calendar month. Fund transfers to your accounts at other financial institutions are subject to the following limits: $5,000 per transaction, $5,000 per business day, $10,000 per calendar month. These transfers are also limited to a maximum of 2 transactions per business day and 20 transactions during any calendar month. We may permit you to exceed these limits from time to time at our sole discretion. If we do, we may stop doing so without prior notice to you. We also may deny or limit transactions for security reasons.

Payments and transfers from Savings accounts and Money Market deposit accounts may be limited. These limits are disclosed to you in the Truth in Savings Initial Disclosure provided to you when you opened your account. We may refuse to permit a Service transaction at any time and without prior notice if we believe it may violate applicable law. See your account agreement for further details.

7. Bill Payment Service

You can enroll online in our bill payment service which we call Payment Manager. If you have enrolled in Payment Manager, please refer to the TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE BILL PAYMENT SERVICE (PAYMENT MANAGER) section in this document.

8. Cathay PeoplePayment

You can use this Service to send money to other individuals.

Enrollment/Activation. You must enroll in Cathay Online Banking to access Cathay PeoplePayment via the Cathay Bank Mobile Banking App. You must have app version 3.3.8 or higher to access Cathay PeoplePayment.

Eligible Recipients.  You may send funds only to individuals and accounts located within the United States, and only in U.S. dollars. We reserve the right to determine who and which accounts may receive fund transfers. You may not transfer funds to recipients until they have been set up in your online banking profile. To do this you must log on to our online banking or mobile banking service. You will see when a recipient is eligible for fund transfers in your online banking profile.

Sending Funds. There are several ways to send funds to a recipient. If you know the recipient’s (or, payee’s) account information (e.g., account number and bank routing number), you can instruct us to send funds electronically to that account. You can also provide us with the recipient’s U.S. mailing address and instruct us to have funds sent to the recipient via check. Lastly, you can instruct us to send an electronic message to the recipient, advising the recipient of the pending transaction and asking the recipient to provide the account and other information we need to complete the transfer.

We may charge your account for the transfer amount on or before the date specified in your instruction and credit funds to an omnibus account that we maintain to clear transactions. If you provide us with the recipient’s account information and instruct us to send funds electronically to that account, it may take up to three business days before funds are credited to the recipient’s account. Payments made by check are generally issued within one business day of the date specified in your instruction, but may be issued earlier or later than that date. It could take several days after the check is issued for it to be received by the recipient through U.S. mail. However, payments by check may be received sooner and presented against your account at that time by the recipient. If you do not have sufficient funds in your account at the time the check is presented, we may pay the amount of the check and charge you an overdraft fee or return the check and charge you a fee for nonsufficient funds.  

If the transfer requires the recipient to respond to provide us with the information we need to complete the transfer, funds will generally be credited to the recipient’s account within three business days of the date the recipient claims the transfer and otherwise provides us with all required information. If the recipient fails to respond within 10 days or the transfer cannot be made for any other reason, we will notify you and return funds to your account.

The cutoff time for submitting transfer instructions is 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time. Instructions received after the cutoff hour or on a non-business day may be processed by us on the next business day. You will receive a confirmation at the time that you submit your transfer instructions.

Erroneous Transfer Instructions.  You assume sole responsibility for you or the recipient accurately describing transfer amounts, accounts, financial institutions, and addresses. We are not responsible for confirming such information, or for monitoring or refusing to process duplicate transfer instructions. If you give us a transfer instruction (or the recipient gives us information related to your instruction) that is incorrect in any way, you agree that we may charge your account for the transfer whether or not the error could have been detected by us. We are not obligated to detect errors in your transfer instructions.

Rejecting Transfer Instructions.  We may reject transfer instructions with or without cause or prior notice. If we do, we may notify you of the rejection orally, electronically or in writing. We may reject a transfer instruction, for example, if you do not have sufficient available funds to cover the transfer. If we reject a transfer, you will need to re-enter the information if you wish to make the transfer at a later date.

Cancelling and Changing Transfer Instructions.  You do not have a right to cancel, change, or stop a transfer after it is submitted to us. Although we may attempt to act on any cancellation or stop payment request you make (e.g., if it is received in a time and manner which permits us to do so), we assume no responsibility for failing or refusing to do so, even if we could have effected the cancellation or stopped the transaction. Our acceptance of any cancellation or stop payment request will not obligate us to accept any future request for cancellation or stop payment. We may discontinue accepting such requests at any time without prior notice. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold us and our agents harmless from any loss, damage, claim, action, and liability that results, and any charges and costs we or our agents incur, in connection with any request by you to cancel or stop a transfer instruction.

Limitations. Fund transfers are subject to the following limits: $750 per transaction and $1,000 per business day. We may permit you to exceed these limits from time to time at our sole discretion. If we do, we may stop doing so without prior notice to you. We also may deny or limit transactions for security reasons. Transfers may be made from checking and money market deposit accounts only. Transfers from money market deposit accounts are limited by law and your deposit agreement with us. You may only make up to 6 withdrawals and/or transfers each month from your money market account by check (for accounts with check privileges), preauthorized or automatic transfer (e.g., automatic payments to an insurance company), draft, point-of-sale debit card, telephone, and/or online banking. We may refuse to permit a Service transaction at any time and without prior notice if we believe it may violate applicable law. See your account agreement for further details.

Use of SMS Text Messages.  Users of this Service may receive SMS text messages relating to their transactions, such payment notices or alerts for validation.

16. Privacy and Sharing of Information

Please see our Privacy Policy for information about how we gather, use and secure nonpublic personal information about you. We may release information about you, your accounts and the transactions you perform to companies that perform services for us (such as check printers and data processing firms), to other financial institutions as part of a joint marketing arrangement, to our affiliates, with your permission, and as permitted by law. We may disclose information, for example:

17. Business Days

Our business days are Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. Instructions received after the cutoff hour of 10:00 p.m. Pacific Time (4:00 p.m. Pacific Time for transfers involving your accounts at other financial institutions) or on a non-business day may be deemed received as of the next business day. Services may occasionally be unavailable due to needed maintenance or system/network interruptions. A transfer between your accounts will be posted on the business day we receive the instruction, but will not be available for withdrawal until the next business day.

18. Documentation

We will send or make available to you a monthly deposit account statement.

19. Service Fees

There is no set-up fee for enrolling in the Service, and no fee for accessing information about your accounts, using the Service electronic mail, or transferring funds between accounts by means of the Service. Fees separately disclosed to you in connection with your account or any transaction-related fees incurred in using the Services may apply. We may amend our Service pricing from time to time. Certain prices are subject to change without prior notice. You are responsible for any fees that may be billed to you by your Internet, telephone access, or mobile service providers.

20. How to Notify Us of a Problem

If you have a question about a Service transaction, believe your User ID or Password has been lost or stolen, or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, please contact us immediately by:

  1. Calling our Cathay Bank Customer Service Center at 800-922-8429 between 6:00 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. (Pacific Time) or,
  2. Writing to us at: Cathay Bank, Attn: Customer Service Department: 9650 Flair Drive, RS-02, El Monte, CA 91731

21. Password and Security

You agree not to give or make available your password or other means to access the Service or your account(s) to any unauthorized individuals. You are responsible for all transfers and payments you authorize using the Service. If you permit other persons to use the Service (including Payment Manager) or your password or other means to access your account(s), you are responsible for any transactions they authorize. If you believe that your password or other means to access your account has been lost or stolen or that someone may attempt to use the Service without your consent or has transferred money without your permission, you must notify the Bank at once at the phone number or address set forth above, in Section 20.

22. Your Responsibility

If you permit other persons to use any Service, you are responsible for any transactions they authorized from your accounts. Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your User ID or Password has been lost or stolen, or if you believe that someone has made payments, transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission. Telephonic notification is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account. If you tell us within two business days, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your User ID or Password without your permission. If you do NOT tell us within two business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your User ID or Password, and we can prove that we could have stopped someone from using your User ID or Password without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500. 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.

23. Our Responsibility

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. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable, for example, if: (a) your account does not contain sufficient available funds to make the transfer; (b) the money in your account is subject to an uncollected funds hold, legal process or any other encumbrance or claim restricting the transfer; (c) the transaction information you supply to us is incorrect, incomplete or untimely; (d) the system was not working properly and you knew about the problem when you requested the transfer; (e) circumstances beyond our control (such as fire, flood, blackouts, viruses, computer breakdowns or telecommunication breakdowns, telecommunication problems, or the failure to perform by any third party service provider) prevent the transaction, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken; (f) the transfer could not be completed due to the system's unavailability; (g) you fail to follow our on-screen instructions properly; or (h) we believe the transaction may be unauthorized or are uncertain as to anyone's authority to use the Service. There may be other exceptions stated in our Agreement with you.

24. In Case of Errors or Questions about Your Electronic Transfers

Call or write to us at the number or address listed in Section 20 as soon as you can if you think your statement is wrong or if you need more information about a transaction listed on the statement. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared. You must: (a) tell us your name and account number; (b) describe the error or the transaction 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 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 determine whether an error occurred 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 days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time that 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 credit your account. For errors involving new accounts, we may take up to 90 days to investigate your complaint or question, and up to 20 business days to credit your account for the amount you think is in error.

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. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.

THE FOREGOING SHALL CONSTITUTE THE BANK’S ENTIRE LIABILITY AND YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE BANK BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS (EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY THEREOF) ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE INSTALLATION, USE, OR MAINTENANCE OF THE EQUIPMENT, SOFTWARE, AND/OR THE SERVICE.

25. Other Terms

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE BILL PAYMENT SERVICE

If you have enrolled in Payment Manager, the following additional terms and conditions supplement, and supersede where inconsistent, other terms of the Agreement.

Definitions

Payment Scheduling

Transactions begin processing four (4) Business Days prior to your Scheduled Payment Date. Therefore, the application will not permit you to select a Scheduled Payment Date less than four (4) Business Days from the current date. When scheduling payments you must select a Scheduled Payment Date that is no later than the actual Due Date reflected on your Payee statement unless the Due Date falls on a non-Business Day. 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 before the actual Due Date. Scheduled Payment Dates should be prior to any late date or grace period.

Payment Manager Guarantee

Due to circumstances beyond our control, particularly delays in handling and posting payments by Payees or financial institutions, some transactions may take longer to be credited to your account. We will bear responsibility for any late payment related charges up to $50.00 should a payment post after its Due Date as long as the payment was scheduled in accordance with the guidelines described under "Payment Scheduling" in this Agreement.

Payment Authorization and Payment Remittance

By providing names and account information of Payees to whom you wish to direct payments, you authorize us to follow the Payment Instructions that we receive through the payment system. In order to process payments more efficiently and effectively, we may edit or alter payment data or data formats in accordance with Payee directives.

When we receive a Payment Instruction, you authorize us to debit your Payment Account and remit funds on your behalf so that the funds arrive as close as reasonably possible to the Scheduled Payment Date designated by you. Payments by check may be received by a Payee prior to the Scheduled Payment Date and presented by the Payee against your account at that time.  If you do not have sufficient funds in your Payment Account at the time a check is presented by the Payee, we may pay the amount of the check and charge you an overdraft fee or return the check and charge you a fee for nonsufficient funds.

You also authorize us to credit your Payment Account for payments returned to us by the United States Postal Service or Payee, or payments remitted to you on behalf of another authorized user of Payment Manager.

We will use our best efforts to make all your payments properly. However, we shall incur no liability and any Payment Manager Guarantee shall be void if we are unable to complete any payments initiated by you because of the existence of any one or more of the following circumstances:

  1. If, through no fault of ours, your Payment Account does not contain sufficient funds to complete the transaction;
  2. The payment processing center is not working properly and you know or have been advised about the malfunction before you execute the transaction;
  3. You have not provided the correct Payment Account information, or the correct name, address, phone number, or account information for the Payee; and/or,
  4. Circumstances beyond our control (such as, but not limited to, fire, flood, or interference from an outside force) prevent the proper execution of the transaction and we have taken reasonable precautions to avoid those circumstances.

Provided none of the foregoing exceptions are applicable, if Payment Manager causes an incorrect amount of funds to be removed from your Payment Account or causes funds from your Payment Account to be directed to a Payee which does not comply with your Payment Instructions, we shall be responsible for returning the improperly transferred funds to your Payment Account, and for directing to the proper Payee any previously misdirected transactions, and, if applicable, for any late payment related charges.

Payment Methods

We reserve the right to select the method in which to remit funds on your behalf to your Payee. These payment methods may include, but may not be limited to, an electronic payment, an electronic to check payment, or a laser draft payment.

Payment Cancellation Requests

You may cancel or edit any Scheduled Payment (including recurring payments) by following the directions within the application. There is no charge for canceling or editing a Scheduled Payment. Once we have begun processing a payment it cannot be cancelled or edited, therefore a stop payment request must be submitted.

Stop Payment Requests

Our ability to process a stop payment request will depend on the payment method and whether or not a check has cleared. We may also not have a reasonable opportunity to act on any stop payment request after a payment has been processed. If you desire to stop any payment that has already been processed, you must contact Customer Service by calling 800-922-8429. Although we will make every effort to accommodate your request, we will have no liability for failing to do so. We may also require you to present your request in writing within fourteen (14) days. The charge for each stop payment request will be the current charge for such service as set out in the applicable fee schedule. Stop payment requests cannot be made using Mobile Banking or Text Banking.

Prohibited Payments

Payments to Payees outside of the United States or its territories are prohibited through Payment Manager.

Exception Payments

Tax payments and court ordered payments may be scheduled through Payment Manager, however such payments are discouraged and must be scheduled at your own risk. In no event shall we be liable for any claims or damages resulting from your scheduling of these types of payments. The Payment Manager Guarantee as it applies to any late payment related changes is void when these types of payments are scheduled and/or processed with Payment Manager. We have no obligation to research or resolve any claim resulting from an exception payment. All research and resolution for any misapplied, mis-posted or misdirected payments will be the sole responsibility of you and not of the Bank.

Payments from Money Market Accounts

Transfers from Money Market deposit accounts may be limited. These limits are disclosed to you in the Truth in Savings Initial Disclosure provided to you when you opened your account. Refer to your account agreement and disclosure for further information.

Bill Delivery and Presentment

You may cancel electronic bill presentment at any time. The timeframe for cancellation of your electronic bill presentment may vary from Payee to Payee. It may take up to sixty (60) days, depending on the billing cycle of each Payee. We will notify your electronic Payee(s) as to the change in status of your account and it is your sole responsibility to make arrangements for an alternative form of bill delivery. We will not be responsible for presenting any electronic bills that are already in process at the time of cancellation.

Non-Delivery of electronic bill(s) - You agree to hold us harmless should the Payee fail to deliver your statement(s). You are responsible for ensuring timely payment of all bills. Copies of previously delivered bills must be requested from the Payee directly.

Accuracy and dispute of electronic bill - We are not responsible for the accuracy of your electronic bill(s). We are only responsible for presenting the information we receive from the Payee.

If you have enrolled in e-Statement and Alert Delivery, the following terms and conditions (the “e-Statement Agreement”) supplement, and supersede where inconsistent, other terms of the Agreement and sets forth the terms of the e-Statement and Alert Delivery Service (the "e-Statement Service") offered to you by Bank. By enrolling in the e-Statement Service, you confirm that you have read this section and agree to its terms. As used in this section, "Alerts" includes any notice, agreement, record or other type of information that is provided to you in connection with your accounts or the e-Statement Service , such as the Agreement, e-Statement Agreement, change-in-term notices, fee and transaction information, check images, tax information, privacy and other notices, statements, and other account-related information.

Description of e-Statements

You may elect to receive your statement electronically (an “e-Statement”) for any Eligible Accounts (defined below) that you choose. Account statements will be made available to you electronically in Portable Document Format ("PDF") that you can view online, save to your computer or print at your convenience. Any inserts or other Alerts that normally accompany your mailed statement will either continue to be mailed under separate cover or provided to you electronically. From time to time, we may add to, modify or delete any feature of the e-Statement Service at our sole discretion.

You understand and agree that, by enrolling in the e-Statement Service, you will no longer receive a deposit account statement by mail. However, you can request copies of statements and Alerts by contacting us at 800-922-8429. We may charge you a fee for paper copies, as stated in our current Schedule of Fees.

Eligible Accounts for e-Statements

Checking, savings and money market accounts are eligible for the e-Statement Service. Each account must be enrolled for the e-Statement Service on an individual basis. e-Statements will be available at the same frequency as your paper statement. e-Statements are not available for loan accounts.

Enrolling in e-Statements

In order to use the e-Statement Service, you must have enrolled in the Service and be a Cathay Bank online banking customer with a working connection to the internet. Your browser must support the Secure Sockets Layer Protocol and must be compatible with our hardware and software requirements as disclosed to you in the “Consent to Electronic Disclosure” section of this Agreement. You will need to have Adobe® Acrobat Reader® or a compatible software installed on your computer in order to access, view and print your statements. To download a free copy of Adobe® Acrobat Reader®, please visit www.adobe.com. We do not provide ISP services. You must have your own internet service provider.

For deposit accounts with multiple owners, only one account owner needs to enroll the account in the e-Statement Service. Once enrolled, the account will no longer appear on any account owner's paper statement. The account statement will be available for viewing to all owners of the account who are enrolled in the Service regardless of which owner enrolled for the e-Statement Service.

Fees and Additional Charges

There is no fee to enroll, and no periodic fee to use, the e-Statement Service. You are responsible for any and all telephone access fees and Internet service fees that may be assessed by your telephone and/or Internet service provider.

Accessing Your e-Statements

Your periodic e-Statement and Alerts will be presented or made available to you via the Service. Once you enroll in the Service, you and all other account owners will have access to your e-Statements within the Service. An electronic notification will be sent to your email address at the end of each statement cycle alerting you that the most recent statement is available for viewing. You agree to review your e-Statements and Alerts in a timely manner, just as you would paper statements and notices, and promptly notify us of any errors, unauthorized activity or other problems.

All e-Statements and Alerts are in a format that can be printed or saved to your computer for your future reference. You may view and print online images of the checks posted to your account. You may request that a photocopy of a cancelled check be mailed to you. However, we may impose a fee for each photocopy requested.

If you close an account or cease to be an online banking Service customer, you will no longer be able to view your account online, and future statements for your open account(s) will revert back to paper statements via U.S. mail.

You may request that a copy of your current or a previous statement (or Alerts) be mailed to you at your address. We may impose a fee for paper copies, as stated in our current Schedule of Fees. If you currently receive duplicate statements at the same address, mailing of the duplicate copy will be discontinued; however, you can print multiple copies of your statement through the e-Statement Service. If you currently have a copy of your statement mailed to an interested third party (e.g., your accountant), mailing of a paper statement to the interested party will continue.

Change Statement Delivery Method

You may discontinue this e-Statement Service at any time by changing the delivery preferences shown in your e-Statement Profile. When you discontinue the e-Statement Service, you will automatically resume receiving mailed account statements and Alerts beginning with your next statement cycle. Electronic Alerts, if any, will be discontinued. The statements that were previously presented online will not be mailed to you; however, you may access copies of past statements using the Online Banking Statement History function.

Email Address Maintenance

You will be deemed to receive statements and Alerts on the date we make them available for you. As such, it is important that we have your current email address. You agree to update your email address by going to the Cathay Online Banking Account Services tab, clicking "Manage Contact Information," and then making your update. Unless otherwise prohibited by law, rule or regulation, if our email to you is returned as undeliverable, we may discontinue sending e-Statements and Alerts, and switch your account to paper statements via U.S. mail until you provide us with a valid email address. We are not liable for any third party-incurred fees, other legal liability, or any other issues or liabilities arising from e-Statements and Alerts sent to an invalid or inactive email address or postal address that you have provided.

Termination of e-Statements

We may elect to send paper statements and Alerts to you at any time without prior notice. We also reserve the right to terminate this e-Statement Agreement and your access to our online banking Service in whole or in part, at any time without cause or prior notice. You may terminate this e-Statement Agreement at any time by changing the delivery preferences shown in your e-Statement Profile.

Amendment
