CUSTOMER SERVICE CONTACT INFORMATION:
Website and Phone Number:
This Cardholder Agreement (“Agreement”) constitutes the agreement between you, and Sutton Bank Attica, Ohio (“Sutton Bank” or “Issuer”), outlining the terms and conditions governing the Investor Cash Management Holdings, LLC (“ICM”) Card Program. This Agreement supplements but does not replace the ICM Terms of Service for the ICM service account (“ICM Service Account”) and ICM services (the “ICM Services”). In the event of an inconstancy between this Agreement and the ICM Terms of Service, this Agreement shall govern and control your Card Account, use of the Card and your relationship with Sutton Bank. The Issuer is an FDIC insured member institution. “Card” means the Debit Mastercard Card issued to you by Sutton Bank which enables you to make certain electronic fund transfers to and from your debit Card Account with Sutton Bank obtain funds transferred from your ICM account to the Card Account (See “Adding Funds to Your Card Account”). If you do not agree to the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, do not activate or use the Card and contact Customer Service to cancel your Card. “Card Account” means the records we maintain to account for the funds associated with the Card. All Cards are issued by the Issuer and distributed and serviced by ICM. “You” and “your” mean the person or persons who have received the Card and are authorized to use the Card as provided for in this Agreement. “We,” “us,” and “our” mean the Issuer and its respective successors, affiliates, or assignees. You acknowledge and agree that the value available in the Card Account is limited to the funds that you have loaded into the Card Account or have been loaded into the Card Account on your behalf. You agree to sign the back of the Card immediately upon receipt. The expiration date of the Card is identified on the front of your Card. The Card is a prepaid card. The Card is not connected in any way to any other account. The Card is not a credit card and will not enhance your credit rating. You will not receive any interest on your funds in the Card Account. The Card will remain the property of the Issuer and must be surrendered upon demand. The Card is nontransferable, is not for resale, and it may be canceled, repossessed, or revoked at any time without prior notice subject to applicable law. We may refuse to process any transaction that we believe may violate the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
Our business days are Monday through Friday, excluding federal holidays, even if we are open. Any references to “days” found in this Agreement are calendar days unless indicated otherwise.
Write down your Card number and the Customer Service telephone number provided in this Agreement on a separate piece of paper in case your Card is lost, stolen, or destroyed. Keep the paper in a safe place. Please read this Agreement carefully and keep it for future reference.
The Card is a prepaid card useable wherever prepaid debit cards bearing the applicable payment network brands on your Card are accepted worldwide. The Card is not a gift card. The Card is not a device that accesses money in an individual checking or savings account. When you use your Card, you are redeeming the value on the Card and not making a withdrawal from a checking or savings account. You may use your Card to make purchases at any merchant that accepts Visa/Mastercard debit cards, subject to your available Card Account balance and the other terms and conditions of this Agreement. You may not use your Card for any online gambling, escort services or any illegal transaction. The Card will have a printed expiration date and the Card will expire, in accordance with applicable law, on the expiration date. If your Card Account is in good standing and you have available funds on the Card, we will issue you a new Card upon expiration. The Card is our property and is nontransferable. We may revoke or suspend your Card or any features or services of your Card at any time without cause or notice. You must surrender a revoked Card and you may not use an expired or revoked Card. You are required to notify us promptly if the Card is lost or stolen.
Activating Your Card: You must activate your Card before it can be used. To activate your Card, contact Customer Service. Your Card will not be available for activation until Sutton Bank has verified your identify.
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who obtains a Card. What this means for you: when you open a Card, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see a copy of your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
To protect the use of your Card, you will be provided with a personal identification number (“PIN”), which must be used on all automated teller machine (“ATM”) transactions and PIN transactions. You should not write or keep your PIN with your Card. Never share your PIN with anyone and do not enter your PIN into any terminal that appears to be modified or suspicious. If you believe that anyone has gained unauthorized access to your PIN, you should advise us immediately, following the procedures in the section labeled “Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfers” below.
You may not permit another person to have access to your Card or Card number. If you do provide access to your Card or Card number, you are liable for all transactions incurred with the Card or Card number. You must notify us to revoke permission for any person you previously authorized to use Card information or have access to your account. You are wholly responsible for the use of each Card according to the terms of this Agreement subject to the section labeled “Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfers” below, and other applicable law.
All funds associated with the Card shall be held in an account with the Issuer for your benefit, with the balance of such funds to be reduced through your use of such funds or through the imposition of fees and other charges in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If you have provided us with the personal information described in the paragraph above labeled “Important Information about Opening a New Card Account,” then such funds are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) up to the maximum amount specified by FDIC regulations.
By activating the Card or by retaining, using or authorizing the use of the Card, you represent and warrant to us that: (i) you are at least 18 years of age (or older if you reside in a state where the majority age is older); (ii) you are a U.S. citizen or legal alien residing in the United States, Puerto Rico or the District of Columbia; (iii) you have provided us with a verifiable U.S. street address (not a P.O. Box); (iv) the personal information that you provide to us in connection with the Card is true, correct and complete; (v) you received a copy of this Agreement and agree to be bound by and to comply with its terms; and (vi) you accept the Card.
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN THIS AGREEMENT, WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND TO YOU, AND HEREBY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, REGARDING THE CARD OR RELATING TO OR ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR: DELAYS OR MISTAKES RESULTING FROM ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ACTS OF GOVERNMENTAL AUTHORITIES, NATIONAL EMERGENCIES, INSURRECTION, WAR, OR RIOTS; THE FAILURE OF MERCHANTS TO HONOR THE CARD; THE FAILURE OF MERCHANTS TO PERFORM OR PROVIDE SERVICES; COMMUNICATION SYSTEM FAILURES; OR FAILURES OR MALFUNCTIONS ATTRIBUTABLE TO YOUR EQUIPMENT, ANY INTERNET SERVICE, OR ANY PAYMENT SYSTEM. IN THE EVENT THAT WE ARE HELD LIABLE TO YOU, YOU WILL ONLY BE ENTITLED TO RECOVER YOUR ACTUAL DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL YOU BE ENTITLED TO RECOVER ANY INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY OR SPECIAL DAMAGES (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE), EVEN IF YOU HAVE ADVISED US OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THIS PROVISION SHALL NOT BE EFFECTIVE TO THE EXTENT OTHERWISE REQUIRED BY LAW. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU AGREE THAT YOUR RECOVERY FOR ANY ALLEGED NEGLIGENCE OR MISCONDUCT BY US SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE TOTAL AMOUNT LOADED ON THE CARD.
You acknowledge and agree that the value available in the Card Account is limited to the balance of the Card Account. Nevertheless, if any transactions cause the available balance in your Card Account to go negative, including any purchase transactions where the retailer or merchant does not request authorization, you shall remain fully liable to us for the amount of any negative balance and any corresponding transaction fees. You agree to pay us promptly for the negative balance. If you do not promptly add sufficient funds to your Card Account to cover the negative balance, we may cancel your Card Account and pursue collection. We further reserve the right to offset any negative balance by any current or future funds you may load to or maintain in your Card Account or funds in any other Card Account you maintain with us now or in the future.
You may use your Card to purchase or lease goods or services in the United States and District of Columbia online, by mail or telephone wherever Visa/Mastercard debit cards are accepted as long as you do not exceed the value available in your Card Account. You are responsible for all transactions initiated by use of your Card, except as otherwise set forth herein. If you do not have enough funds available in your Card Account for the amount authorized by you, your transaction will be declined. If you do not have enough funds available in your Card Account, you can instruct the merchant to charge a part of the purchase to the Card and pay the remaining amount with cash or using another payment method. These are called “split transactions.” Some merchants do not allow cardholders to conduct split transactions. Some merchants will only allow you to do a split transaction if you pay the remaining amount in cash. If you use your Card number without presenting your Card (such as for an online transaction), the legal effect will be the same as if you used the Card itself in-store. You are not allowed to exceed the available amount in your Card Account through an individual transaction or a series of transactions made with your Card. Nevertheless, if a transaction exceeds the balance of the funds available in your Card Account, you shall remain fully liable to us for the amount of the transaction.
Cash Access. With your PIN, you may use your Card to obtain cash from any Automated Teller Machine (“ATM”) that bears the Mastercard acceptance mark, or you may use the Card to withdraw funds at any POS device, as permissible by a merchant, that bears the Visa/Mastercard Acceptance Mark. Some of these services may not be available at all terminals. Any funds withdrawn from an ATM or POS device are subject to the transaction limits established under this Agreement. If you seek to withdraw cash from a merchant POS device, please note that each merchant may establish limits as to how much cash may be obtained from a POS device at a single time or through a single location.
When you use an ATM not owned by us, you may be charged a fee by the ATM operator or any network used and you may be charged a fee for a balance inquiry even if you do not complete a fund transfer. We are not responsible for such fee. The amount of the fee should be disclosed at the ATM. Any such fee will be deducted from the balance of the Card, along with the amount of the withdrawal performed at the ATM.
PIN and Non-PIN Transactions: Merchants may limit the available options for the type of transaction you wish to conduct or may let you choose between a PIN (“Debit”) transaction or a signature (“Credit”) transaction at the point of sale. To initiate a signature transaction at the point of sale, select “Credit” and sign the receipt (if required by the merchant). To initiate a PIN transaction at the point of sale, select “Debit” and enter your PIN at the point of sale terminal. For mail order, telephone, Internet or other card-not-present purchases, merchants may choose to route a transaction as a PIN transaction without asking you to enter your PIN.
Foreign Transaction Fee: If you obtain your funds (or make a purchase) in a currency or country other than the currency or country in which your Card was issued (“Foreign Transaction”), you will be charged a fee equal to 3.00% on the total amount of the transaction in U.S. Dollars. The card association may consider transactions occurring in U.S. territories to be Foreign Transactions, so transactions originating from these locations may be subject to a Foreign Transaction Fee. If the Foreign Transaction results in a credit due to a return, we will not refund any Foreign Transaction Fee that may have been charged on your original purchase.
Transactions in Foreign Currencies. If you make a purchase using your Card in a currency other than in U.S. dollars, the amount deducted from the available funds in the Card Account will be converted by MasterCard into U.S. dollars. The applicable exchange rate will be selected by MasterCard from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which may vary from the rate MasterCard itself receives or the government-mandated rate. The exchange rate used on the central processing date may be different than the rate that was in effect on the date you performed the transaction.
Merchant Holds on Available Funds. When you use your Card or Card number to initiate a transaction at certain merchant locations, such as hotels, restaurants, gas stations, and rental car companies, where the final purchase amount is unknown at the time of authorization, a hold may be placed on the available funds in your Card Account for an amount equal to or in excess of the final transaction amount. The funds subject to the hold will not be available to you for any other purpose until the merchant sends us the final transaction amount. Once we receive the final transaction amount, it may take up to seven (7) days for the hold to be removed. During that period, you will not have access to the funds subject to the hold. Please be advised that you may experience difficulties using your Card at unattended vending machines, kiosks, and gas station pumps. If your Card is declined at a “pay at the pump” gas station even though you have sufficient funds available, you should pay for your purchase inside with the cashier.

Subject to the ICM Terms of Service, the ICM Service Account may be linked to your Card Account for purposes of facilitating transactions through your Card. To qualify for the ICM Service Account, you must maintain a minimum required balance in your Card Account of $125 (the “Minimum Required Balance”). Amounts greater than this Minimum Required Balance will automatically transfer to your ICM Service Account each business day in accordance with the ICM Terms of Service.
You acknowledge and agree that by registering for the Card program you authorized ICM to transfer funds between your ICM Service Account and the Card Account as provided in this paragraph until you withdraw from participating in the Card program (See Website for instructions on withdrawing from the Card program).
When the Card is used for a transaction, funds will be used from your ICM Service Account and, potentially, from your Card Account for the amount of the purchase in the following manner. An authorization request (e.g., from a merchant) will be transmitted to us. We will communicate with ICM to determine if you have funds in your ICM Service Account available to fulfill the transaction authorization request. If ICM notifies us that funds are available for the transaction and the transaction itself is authorized, the funds will be transferred from your ICM Service Account and deposited to your Card Account. The funds will then be debited from your Card Account for the amount of the transaction.
If ICM notifies us that you have insufficient funds available in your ICM Service Account for the transaction, but you have sufficient funds in the combined total of your ICM Service Account and Card Account, the transaction will be split by first applying the amount from your ICM Service Account in the manner described above and then paying the remaining amount from the Minimum Required Balance contained in your Card Account. If the combined total of your ICM Service Account and Card Account is not sufficient to complete the purchase, the transaction will be declined.
If ICM notifies us that there are no funds available for the amount of the purchase then no funds will be added to the Card Account and your Minimum Required Balance will be used to pay for the entire amount of the transaction. If your Minimum Required Balance is not sufficient to complete the purchase, the transaction will be declined.

NON-DEPOSIT INVESTMENT PRODUCTS ARE NOT INSURED BY BANK INSURANCE OR THE FDIC, ARE NOT INSURED BY A FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AGENCY, ARE NOT DEPOSITS OR OTHER OBLIGATIONS OF, OR GUARANTEED BY, THE BANK OR ANY AFFILIATE, AND ARE SUBJECT TO INVESTMENT RISK INCLUDING THE POSSIBLE LOSS OF THE PRINCIPAL AMOUNT INVESTED.

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. We will charge you for each stop-payment order you give (See “Fee Schedule” paragraph below).
Notice of varying amounts: If these regular payments may vary in amount, the person you are going to pay will tell you, 10 days before each payment, when it will be made and how much it will be. You may choose instead to get this notice only when the payment would differ by more than a certain amount from the previous payment, or when the amount would fall outside certain limits that you set.
Liability for failure to stop payment of preauthorized transfer: If you order us to stop one of these payments three business days or more before the transfer is scheduled, and we do not do so, we will be liable for your losses or damages.
If you are entitled to a refund for any reason for goods or services obtained with your Card, the return and refund will be handled by the merchant. If the merchant credits your Card, the credit may not be immediately available. While merchant refunds post as soon as they are received, please note that we have no control over when a merchant sends a credit transaction and the refund may not be available for a number of days after the date the refund transaction occurs.
