ELECTRONIC FUND TRANSFERS
YOUR RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Indicated below are types of Electronic Fund Transfers we are capable of handling, some of which may not apply to your account. Please read this disclosure carefully because it tells you your rights and obligations for the transactions listed. You may print this notice for future reference.
Electronic Fund Transfers Initiated By Third Parties.
You may authorize a third party to initiate electronic fund transfers between your account and the third party’s account. These transfers to make or receive payment may be one-time occurrences or may recur as directed by you. These transfers may use the Automated Clearing House (ACH) or other payments network. Your authorization to the third party to make these transfers can occur in a number of ways. For example, your authorization to convert a check to an electronic fund transfer or to electronically pay a returned check charge can occur when a merchant provides you with notice and you go forward with the transaction (typically, at the point of purchase, a merchant will post a sign and print the notice on a receipt). In all cases, these third party transfers will require you to provide the third party with your account number and bank information. This information can be found on your check as well as on a deposit or withdrawal slip. Thus, you should only provide your bank and account information (whether over the phone, the Internet, or via some other method) to trusted third parties whom you have authorized to initiate these electronic fund transfers. Examples of these transfers include, but are not limited to:
You may make arrangements for certain direct deposits to be accepted into your Checking or Savings account(s).
You may make arrangements to pay certain recurring bills from your Checking or Savings account(s).
Electronic check conversion
You may authorize a merchant or other payee to make a one-time electronic payment from your checking account using information from your check to pay for purchases or pay bills.
Electronic returned check charge
You may authorize a merchant or other payee to initiate an electronic funds transfer to collect a charge in the event a check is returned for insufficient funds.

ATM Transfers – types of transfers, frequency and dollar limitations, and charges
You may access your account(s) by ATM using your Visa® Debit Card and personal identification number, to:
– make deposits to Checking account(s) with a Shazam card or Visa® Debit Card;

Some of these services may not be available at all terminals.
We do not issue Visa Debit Cards for Minor Savings accounts (up to 18 years of age).
Types of Shazam Card Point-of-Sale Transactions
You may access your Money Market Checking or Checking account(s) to purchase goods (in person), pay for services (in person), and get cash from a merchant, if the merchant permits, or from a participating financial institution.
Point-Of-Sale Transactions – frequency and dollar limitations and charges
Using your card, you may make no more than three transactions per day and you may not exceed $300.00 in transactions per day. Please refer to your account disclosure.
Types of Visa® Check Card Point-of-Sale Transactions
You may access your Checking account(s) to purchase goods (in person, online, or by phone), pay for services (in person, online, or by phone), get cash from a merchant, if the merchant permits, or from a participating financial institution, and do anything that a participating merchant will accept.
Point-of-Sale Transactions – dollar limitations and charges
Using your card, you may not exceed your available balance in transactions per day. Please refer to your account disclosure.
Currency Conversion and International Transactions
When you use your Visa® Check Card at a merchant that settles in currency other than US dollars, the charge will be converted into the US dollar amount. The currency conversion rate used to determine the transaction amount in US dollars is either a rate selected by Visa from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which rate may vary from the rate Visa itself receives, or the government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date. The conversion rate in effect on the processing date may differ from the rate in effect on the transaction date or posting date. Visa USA charges us a .8% International Service Assessment on all international transactions, regardless of whether there is a currency conversion. If there is a currency conversion, the International Service Assessment is 1% of the transaction. In either case, we pass this international transaction fee on to you. An international transaction is a transaction where the country of the merchant is outside of the USA.
For any point-of-sale transaction of $50.00 or more, if we receive written or oral notice from you within three banking business days of the transaction, we shall reverse the transaction and recredit your account. Notice must be provided to us at the address or telephone number appearing in this disclosure.
Advisory Against Illegal Use
You agree not to use your card(s) for illegal gambling or other illegal purpose. Display of a payment card logo by, for example, an online merchant does not necessarily mean that transactions are lawful in all jurisdictions in which the cardholder may be located.
Non-Visa Debit Transaction Processing
We have enabled non-Visa debit transaction processing. This means you may use your Visa-branded debit card on a PIN-Debit Network* (a non-Visa network) without using a PIN.
The non-Visa debit network(s) for which such transactions are enabled are: PULSE Network.
Examples of the types of actions that you may be required to make to initiate a Visa transaction on your Visa-branded debit card include signing a receipt, providing a card number over the phone or via the Internet, or swiping the card through a point-of-sale terminal.
Examples of the types of actions you may be required to make to initiate a transaction on a PIN-Debit Network include initiating a payment directly with the biller (possibly via telephone, Internet, or kiosk locations), responding to a logo displayed at a payment site and choosing to direct payment through that network, and having your identity verified using known information derived from an existing relationship with you instead of through use of a PIN.
The provisions of your agreement with us relating only to Visa transactions are not applicable to non-Visa transactions. For example, the additional limits on liability (sometimes referred to as Visa®s zero-liability program) and the streamlined error resolution procedures offered on Visa debit card transactions are not applicable to transactions processed on a PIN-Debit Network.
* Visa Rules generally define PIN-Debit Network as a non-Visa debit network that typically authenticates transactions by use of a personal identification number (PIN) but that is not generally known for having a card program.
Internet Banking Computer Transfers – types of transfers and charges –
You may access your account(s) by computer through the internet by logging onto our website at www.wisconsinriverbank.com and using your access identification and your password to:
– transfer funds between Checking and Savings. Please refer to account disclosure.
– make payments from Checking or Savings to loan account(s) with us. Please refer to account disclosure.
– get information about:
a) the account balance of Checking or Savings account(s)
b) deposits to Checking or Savings Accounts
c) withdrawals from Checking or Savings accounts
d) balance and transaction activity relating to loan account(s)
Health Savings Accounts (HSA)
We permit some electronic fund transfers to and/or from your HSA. The electronic fund transfers we permit are offered for the convenience of managing your HSA. However, electronically moving funds to or from your HSA – for example, depositing more than the allowable amount, or getting additional cash back on an HSA debit card transaction – can raise a variety of tax concerns. As a result, before electronically accessing any account you may have with us, it is a good practice to make sure you are using the correct access device (such as a card) or accessing the appropriate account for the transaction. Also, it is your responsibility to ensure the contributions, distributions, and other actions related to your HSA, comply with the law, including federal tax law. As always, we recommend consulting a legal or tax professional if you have any questions about managing your HSA. The terms of this disclosure are intended to work in conjunction with the HSA Agreement provided you earlier. In the event of a conflict, the terms of the HSA Agreement control. You understand that your HSA is intended to be used for payment of qualified medical expenses. It is your responsibility to satisfy any tax liability resulting from use of your HSA for any purpose other than payment or reimbursement of qualified medical expenses. We do not monitor the purpose of any transaction to or from your HSA. Nor are we responsible for ensuring your eligibility for making contributions or ensuring withdrawals are used for payment or reimbursement of qualified medical expenses. Refer to your HSA Agreement for more information relating to the use of your HSA.
We do not charge for direct deposits to any type of account.
ATM Operator/Network Fees
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).
You can get a receipt at the time you make a transfer to or from your account using an automated teller machine or point-of-sale terminal. However, you may not get a receipt if the amount of the transfer is $15.00 or less.
If you have arranged to have direct deposits made to your account at least once every 60 days from the same person or company, the person or company making the deposit will tell you every time they send us the money.
If you have arranged to have direct deposits made to your account at least once every 60 days from the same person or company, you can call us at (608) 643-6300 to find out whether or not the deposit has been made.
You will get a monthly account statement from us for your Money Market Checking, Regular Savings, Health Savings Account (HSA), and Checking accounts.
You will get a monthly statement for your Minor Savings accounts if there is an electronic fund transfer in a particular month. In any case you will get the statement at least quarterly.
Right to stop payment and procedure for doing so
If you have told us in advance to make regular payments out of your account, you can stop any of these payments. Here is how:
Call or write us at the telephone number or address listed in this disclosure in time for us to receive your request 3 business days or more before the payment is scheduled to be made. 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.
Call the Bank for a fee schedule for the amount the Bank will charge for each stop payment order.
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 3 business days or more before the transfer is scheduled, and we do not do so, we will be liable for your losses or damages.
FINANCIAL INSTITUTION’S LIABILITY
Liability for failure to make transfers
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 instance:
a) if, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer;
b) if you have an overdraft line and the transfer would go over the credit limit;
c) if the automated teller machine where you are making the transfer does not have enough cash;
d) if the terminal or system was not working properly and you knew about the breakdown when you started the transfer;
e) if circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood) prevent the transfer, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken;
f) there may be other exceptions stated in our agreement with you.
We will disclose information to third parties about your account or the transfers you make:
a) where it is necessary for completing transfers; or
b) in order to verify the existence and condition of your account for a third party, such as a credit bureau or merchant; or
c) in order to comply with government agency or court orders; or
d) if you give us written permission.
a) Consumer Liability
Generally, Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your card and/or code has been lost or stolen, or if you believe that an electronic fund transfer has been made without your permission using information from your checking account. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You can lose no more than $50.00 if you fail to give us notice of a lost or stolen card and/or code. If you do give us notice after learning of the loss or theft of your card and/or code, you will be liable for the lesser of:
– $50.00 or
– the amount of any money, property, or services obtained by unauthorized use of the card and/or code before you gave us notice.
Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, including those made by card, code or other means, 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 period.
Additional Limit on Liability for VisaÂ® Debit Card. Unless you have been grossly negligent or have engaged in fraud, you will not be liable for any unauthorized transactions using your lost or stolen Visa® Check Card. This additional limit on liability does not apply to ATM transactions or to transactions using your Personal Identification Number which are not processed by VISA®.
b) Contact in event of unauthorized transfer
If you believe your card and/or code has been lost or stolen, call or write us at the telephone number or address listed in this disclosure. You should also call the number or write to the address listed in this disclosure if you believe a transfer has been made using the information from your check without your permission.
ERROR RESOLUTION NOTICE
In Case of Errors or Questions About Your Electronic Transfers, Call or Write us at the telephone number or address listed in this disclosure, as soon as you can, if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transfer listed on the statement or receipt. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.
a) Tell us your name and account number (if any).
b) Describe the error or the transfer you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.
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 (5 business days for Visa® Debit Card point-of-sale transactions processed by Visa and 20 business days if the transfer involved a new account) after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days (90 days if the transfer involved a new account, a point-of-sale transaction or a foreign-initiated transfer) to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days (5 business days for Visa® Debit Card point-of-sale transactions processed by Visa and 20 business days if the transfer involved a new account) for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes 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. Your account is considered a new account for the first 30 days after the first deposit is made, unless each of you already has an established account with us before this account is opened.
We will tell you the results within three 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.

YOUR ABILITY TO WITHDRAW FUNDS
This policy statement applies to all deposit accounts.
Our policy is to make funds from your cash and check deposits available to you on the first business day after the day we receive your deposit. Electronic direct deposits will be available on the day we receive the deposit. Once the funds are available, you can withdraw them in cash and we will use the funds to pay checks that you have written.
Please remember that even after we have made funds available to you, and you have withdrawn the funds, you are still responsible for checks you deposit that are returned to us unpaid and for any other problems involving your deposit.
For determining the availability of your deposits every day is a business day, except Saturdays, Sundays, and federal holidays. If you make a deposit before 5:00 P.M. at our Sauk City, Lodi or Janesville locations on a business day that we are open, we will consider that day to be the day of your deposit. However, if you make a deposit after 5:00 P.M. at our Sauk City, Lodi or Janesville locations or on a day we are not open, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day we are open.
If we cash a check for you that is drawn on another bank, we may withhold the availability of a corresponding amount of funds that are already in your account. Those funds will be available at the time funds from the check we cashed would have been available if you had deposited it.
If we accept for deposit a check that is drawn on another bank, we may make funds from the deposit available for withdrawal immediately but delay your availability to withdraw a corresponding amount of funds that you have on deposit in another account with us. The funds in the other account would then not be available for withdrawal until the time periods that are described elsewhere in this disclosure for the type of check that you deposited.
LONGER DELAYS MAY APPLY
In some cases, we will not make all of the funds that you deposit by check available to you on the first business day after the day of your deposit. Depending on the type of check that you deposit, funds may not be available until the second business day after the day of your deposit. The first $225 of your deposits, however, will be available on the first business day.
If we are not going to make all of the funds from your deposit available on the first business day, we will notify you at the time you make your deposit. We will also tell you when the funds will be available. If your deposit is not made directly to one of our employees, or if we decide to take this action after you have left the premises, we will mail you the notice by the day after we receive your deposit.
If you will need the funds from a deposit right away, you should ask us when the funds will be available.
In addition, funds you deposit by check may be delayed for a longer period under the following circumstances:
– We believe a check you deposit will not be paid.
– You deposit checks totaling more than $5,525 on any one day.
– You redeposit a check that has been returned unpaid.
– You have overdrawn your account repeatedly in the last six months.
– There is an emergency, such as failure of computer or communications equipment.
We will notify you if we delay your ability to withdraw funds for any of these reasons, and we will tell you when the funds will be available. They will generally be available no later than the seventh business day after the day of your deposit.
SPECIAL RULES FOR NEW ACCOUNTS
If you are a new customer, the following special rules will apply during the first 30 days your account is open.
Funds from electronic direct deposits to your account will be available on the day we receive the deposit. Funds from deposits of cash, wire transfers, and the first $5,525 of a day’s total deposits of cashier’s, certified, teller’s, traveler’s, and federal, state, and local government checks will be available on the first business day after the day of your deposit if the deposit meets certain conditions. For example, the checks must be payable to you (and you may have to use a special deposit slip). The excess over $5,525 will be available on the ninth business day after the day of your deposit. If your deposit of these checks (other than a U.S. Treasury check) is not made in person to one of our employees, the first $5,525 will not be available until the second business day after the day of your deposit.
Funds from all other check deposits will be available on the tenth business day after the day of your deposit.
