Additional Terms and Conditions
Obtaining Account Balance and Transaction History - You
can obtain balance and transaction history on all eligible accounts through
Your Casual E-Banker. Current balance
and activity information is available as of the time of your logon to Your
Casual E-Banker and is up-to-the-minute with the bank’s records.
Transferring Funds - The number of transfers from a
savings account is limited as described in the applicable Deposit Agreement and
Disclosure. If a hold has been placed on deposits made to an account from which
you wish to transfer funds, you cannot transfer the portion of the funds held
until the hold expires.
Your Casual E-Banker Payment Service allows you to
schedule bill payments through Your Casual E-Banker. You can schedule, at your
option, for the payment of your current, future and recurring bills from any of
your North Valley Bank checking accounts. There is no limit to the number of
payments that may be authorized. You may pay any merchant or individual through
the use of Your Casual E-Banker. We are unable to process any payment of taxes,
court-directed payments such as alimony, child support, speeding tickets, etc,
or payments to payees outside the United States through Your Casual
E-Banker Bill Payment Services.
By furnishing us with the names of payees/merchants, you
authorize us to follow the payment instructions to these payee/merchants that
you provide us through Your Casual E-Banker. When we receive a payment
instruction (for the current or a future date), we will remit funds to the
payee on your behalf from the funds in your selected checking account. When
Your Casual E-Banker receives a payment instruction, you authorize it to charge
your checking account and remit funds on your behalf so that the funds arrive
as close to the business day designated by you as reasonably possible. While it
is anticipated that most transactions will be completed on the exact day
designated, you agree that due to circumstances beyond the control of Your
Casual E-Banker, particularly delays in handling and posting payments
slow-responding companies or financial institutions, some transactions may take
a day or even a few days longer.
The Casual E-Banker allows you the convenience to make payments
to over 500 payees that will post on the same day. Payments are guaranteed to post on the same
day and are funded via ACH. Each payee
has a cutoff time for which all payments must be remitted in order for them to
be posted to your account. When you
select a payee and the cutoff time has passed, you will be warned that the
payment will not be posted on the same day.
You may decide to continue, the payment will be posted on the next
business day and you will be charged the same fee amount for the service. There are specific limits set with this
The maximum dollar amount for an individual payment
is $5,000.00. The maximum total dollar
amount a consumer can make in one day is $10,000.00.
The minimum dollar amount for an individual payment
The maximum number of payments you can make in one
day is (2) two.
Valley Bank’s Bill Pay service is provided to you by Online Resources Company
(ORCC). ORCC is committed to delivering
the same high quality service you have come to know and expect from North
Valley Bank. ORCC is under contractual
agreements with North Valley Bank in which they guarantee payments. ORCC’s Payment Guarantee
policy and terms are presented below in red:
If for reasons beyond your control or North Valley Bank’s control, a properly
scheduled payment is posted late through Your Casual E-Banker, ORCC will ensure
that late fees and finance charges are removed by the merchant (or paid by ORCC) and that your account at the merchant
is appropriately noted.
The Payment Guarantee provides unlimited
coverage for payments up to $25,000. It
is important to note, that the Payment Guarantee applies to late fees and
finance charges only. The Guarantee does
not cover losses incurred due to late payment or posting beyond standard late
fees and/or finance charges. For
example, if you submit a payment for a securities trade that was not paid or
posted on time, ORCC shall not be liable for the unrealized transaction.
The Payment Guarantee applies to late fees
and/or finance charges associated with late posting of a payment, provided the
following conditions are met:
1. The payment was
scheduled to be paid at least two or five business days prior to the due date,
excluding any grace periods. (The one
exception to this guideline is that mortgage payments should be scheduled to be
paid on or before due date. For example,
a mortgage payment due on July 1st, with a 15-day grace period, must
be scheduled for processing no later than July 1st). Two-day payments are remitted to electronic
merchants, and five-day payments are remitted to check merchants. Please note, “Today” payments are not
actually processed/remitted until the following business day. The “today” payment date is Day 0 (this is
the debit date). The payment processing
date (the next business date when the credit is remitted) is actually Day 1.
2. The information supplied is by you is correct
(payee name and address, user name and account name as it appears on the
In cases where ORCC assumes
responsibility for a late payment, late fees and/or applicable finance charges will be paid on
behalf of the user if the merchant is unable or unwilling to remove these
charges from the account.
Please note that this Payment Guarantee does not imply that
payments will be delivered, posted and credited to your account by the merchant
within two or five business days, since the post office controls the deliver
date and the merchant controls the actual posting date. Although ORCC cannot control these actions, ORCC does take responsibility for
paying late fees or finance charge penalties:
Reason for Late Payment
Responsibility for Paying Fees &
Lost, cannot determine reason
Not sent to payee as scheduled

We will use our best efforts to process all your payments
properly. However, we shall incur no liability if we are unable to complete any
payments initiated by you through Your Casual E-Banker because of the existence
of any one or more of the following circumstances:
account does not contain sufficient funds to complete the transaction or the
transaction would exceed the credit limit of your overdraft protection account.

Terminating the Service
You have the right to stop or change any scheduled
payment. You must cancel the payment by no later than 12 midnight (Eastern
Standard Time), the day prior to the Payment Date, by using the DELETE function
on the Your Casual E-Banker "Pending Payment" screen.
North Valley Bank reserves the right to terminate
or suspend your use of Your Casual E-Banker bill payment service in whole or
part, at any time without prior notice.
If, for any reason, you should ever wish to cancel Your
Casual E-Banker bill payment services, we strongly suggest that you cancel all
future bill payments at the same time that you cancel your service, either by
deleting those payments yourself using Your Casual E-Banker or calling North
Valley Bank's Customer Service at 1-888-347-4355
toll free or 1-740-450-2265. This will ensure that future payments and
transfers made by you will not be duplicated. We will automatically delete all
outstanding payment orders (all individual payments and all recurring payments)
once we have been notified that your service has been terminated. We will
continue to maintain your accounts until you notify us otherwise.
You agree to the fees and charges for your use of Your
Casual E-Banker BillPay as set forth in the current fee schedule. Fees will be charged to your payment account,
whether or not bill payments are made out of that account, or any other account
linked to Your Casual E-Banker payment services.
Additionally, you agree to pay any special charges in
effect as announced by the Bank from time to time. These charges are in
addition to the fees and service charges specified in your applicable checking,
savings, and overdraft protection account agreements (for example, uncollected
or overdraft charges on your checking account).
You agree to pay any additional charges for services you request, which
are not covered by this agreement. You
further agree to pay all taxes and governmental assessments now or hereafter
applicable to this Agreement, including, but not limited to, sales, use and
If the payment account has insufficient funds to cover
fees, the Bank may deduct the fee from any other account linked to Your Casual
E-Banker or any other account you hold with us (in any order we may choose). If
the fee cannot be paid, we may cancel your Bill Pay service. After
cancellation, your Bill Pay service may be reinstated by contacting North
Valley Bank Customer Service once sufficient funds are available in your
payment account to cover the bill payment fees and any other pending transfers
Changes to Charges, Fees or Other Terms
We reserve the right to change the charges, fees or other
terms described in this Agreement. However, when changes are made to any fees
or charges, we will notify you through Your Casual E-Banker, or send a notice
to you at the address shown on our records, or send you an electronic mail
message (E-mail). The notice will be posted or sent at least thirty (30) days
in advance of the effective date of any additional fees for online
transactions, or of any stricter limits on the type, amount or frequency of
transactions or any increase in your responsibility for unauthorized
transactions, unless an immediate change is necessary to maintain the security
of the system. If such a change is made, and it can be disclosed without
jeopardizing the security of the system, we will provide you with electronic or
written notice within thirty (30) days after the change. As always, you may
choose to accept or decline changes by continuing or discontinuing the accounts
or services to which these changes relate. We also reserve the option, in our
business judgment, to waive, reduce or reverse charges or fees in individual
situations. Changes to fees applicable to specific accounts are governed by the
applicable Deposit Agreement and Disclosure.
Disclosure of Account Information
You understand that in addition to information furnished
pursuant to legal process, some information about your accounts may
automatically be disclosed to others. For example, the tax laws require
disclosure to the government of the amount of the interest you earn, and some
transactions, such as certain large currency and foreign transactions, must be
reported to the government. The Bank may also provide information about your
account(s) to persons or companies the Bank believes would use the information
for reasonable purposes, such as when a prospective creditor seeks to verify
information you may have given in a credit application or a merchant calls to
verify a check you have written. In addition, the Bank routinely informs a
credit bureau when accounts are closed by the Bank because they were not
handled properly. The Bank may also seek information about you from others,
such as a credit bureau, in connection with the opening or maintaining of your
reviewed within the Casual E-Banker. For
