Additional Terms and Conditions for Remote Deposit Capture
Remote Deposit Capture services (RDC) hereafter referred to as “Mobile Deposit”, are designed to allow you to make deposits to an eligible account using your camera-enabled mobile device. Your mobile device must be capable of capturing check/draft (Item) images and associated deposit information and electronically delivering these images and information to Johnson Bank or its processor. The device must capture an image of the front and back of each Item to be deposited, must be able to read and capture the Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (“MICR”) line on each Item; and must read and capture all other data and information as required by these Terms and Conditions or Federal Reserve regulations for the processing of these Items for payment.
Johnson Bank reserves the right to establish and assign to you deposit limits for Mobile Deposit (including limits on the dollar amount and/or number of Items and other payment instruments that you may transmit through Mobile Deposit each Business Day) and to modify such limits from time to time at Johnson Bank's sole discretion, and you agree to comply with all such limits. The current limits are:
- Daily limits: You may deposit no more than $6,000 per Business Day.
If your deposit is received prior to 8:00 p.m. Central Time on a Business Day, your request will be processed on that same day. If your deposit is received on or after 8:00 p.m. Central Time or on a non-Business Day, your request may not be processed until the next Business Day.
Endorsements and Procedures:
You agree to restrictively endorse, on the back of the document, any Item transmitted through Mobile Deposit with “FOR MOBILE DEPOSIT ONLY, JOHNSON BANK” along with your signature under the restriction. Any loss Johnson Bank incurs from a delay or processing error resulting from an irregular endorsement or other markings by you will be your responsibility.
You agree that you will not use the remote deposit service to deposit any of the following Items:
- Items payable to any person or entity other than you;
- Travelers Cheques;
- Items drawn on a financial institution located outside the United States;
- Items containing obvious alteration to any of the fields on the front of the Item, or which you know or suspect, or should know or suspect, are fraudulent;
- Items otherwise not acceptable under the terms of your applicable checking, savings, or money market account and related agreement with us; or
- Third party or electronic Items (only Items that originated as paper Items may be deposited).
Rejection of Deposits:
You agree that all deposits received by Johnson Bank are subject to verification and final inspection and may be rejected by us at our sole discretion, and you shall be liable to Johnson Bank for any errors, inaccuracies, breach of warranties and any other loss sustained by, or claim made against Johnson Bank relating to such deposits. Johnson Bank is not liable for any service or late charges that may be imposed against you due to rejection of any Item that you transmit for deposit through Mobile Deposit. In all cases, you are responsible for any loss or overdraft plus any applicable fees to your account due to an Item being returned. You acknowledge and agree that, while Johnson Bank normally provides notice of rejected deposits, we may reject any Item transmitted through Mobile Deposit at our sole discretion without notice to you, and we will not be liable for any such rejection or failure to notify you of such rejection. If Johnson Bank rejects an Item for remote deposit, you may be asked to physically deposit the original Item at any of our offices.
Regulation CC (Availability of Funds) does not apply when you transmit the electronic images of deposit items to us; however, funds from deposits made by Mobile Deposit will generally be made available for withdrawal by the next Business Day after the day of deposit. We may apply additional delays on the availability of funds based on any other factors as determined by us at our sole discretion.
Storage, Security and Destruction/Disposal of the Original Items:
After you receive confirmation that Johnson Bank has received an image, we recommend you securely store the original Item for 10 Business Days after transmission to us and make the original Item accessible to us at our request. If not provided in a timely manner, such amount will be reversed from your account. Promptly after the 10 Business Day retention period expires, you must destroy the original Item by first marking it “VOID” and then destroying it by cross-cut shredding or another secure means of destruction. After destruction of the original Item, the image will be the sole evidence of the original Item.
As set forth in the Deposit Account Disclosures and Agreement (DADA), if any Item has been returned for any reason, you authorize us to deduct that amount from your account. You are solely responsible for verifying that Items that you deposit by using Mobile Deposit have been received and accepted for deposit by Johnson Bank. Johnson Bank will provide you with notice of any deposit that it is unable to process because an Item was returned unpaid by the paying financial institution. You agree to accept such notices at your email address on file with us, but Johnson Bank may choose any reasonable method for providing such notices to you. In the event that Johnson Bank credits your account for an Item that is subsequently dishonored and returned, you authorize Johnson Bank to debit the amount of such Item plus any associated fees from the account. To the extent that funds in your account are insufficient to cover such amount, we shall debit the deficiency amount from any of your other account(s) with Johnson Bank at our sole discretion. Our right to charge your account(s) will apply without regard to whether the Item was timely returned or whether there is any other claim or defense that the Item was improperly returned. You understand and agree that since the original Item is your property, it will not be returned and Johnson Bank may charge back an image of the Item, an ACH debit, or other electronic or paper debit, as applicable, to your account. You further agree that any image that we charge back may be in the form of an electronic or paper reproduction of the original Item or a substitute Item. You may not use Mobile Deposit to deposit a substitute Item and you may not deposit the original Item through Mobile Deposit or in any other manner if you receive a dishonored Item. You agree to comply with any additional instructions Johnson Bank may provide to you in connection with returned Items.
Duty to Report Errors:
Johnson Bank will make available to you periodic statements that will identify the deposits that you make through Mobile Deposit. In addition, you may access Johnson Bank's eBanking service for information about your deposits, return Items, deposit adjustments, Items and other transactions on your accounts. You agree that it is your responsibility to review all such information that Johnson Bank makes available to you in a timely manner to verify that deposits made through Mobile Deposit have been received and accepted by Johnson Bank and are accurate. Receipt of an Item by Johnson Bank through Mobile Deposit does not constitute an acknowledgement by Johnson Bank that the Item is error-free or that we will be liable for the Item. You agree to notify us promptly of any errors, omissions, or discrepancies in a deposit within the time periods established in your Deposit Account Disclosures and Agreement (DADA) which was provided to you at account opening. You may notify us by emailing us at email@example.com, writing to our Johnson Financial Group Customer Support Center at, 555 Main Street – Suite 390, Racine, WI 53403, or calling our Johnson Financial Group Customer Support Center at 1.888.769.3796. To maintain the security of your account(s), do not include any personal financial information in an email transmission. You agree to cooperate in any investigation by Johnson Bank of any unsuccessful or lost transmission. Subject to applicable law, any failure by you to notify Johnson Bank of any error, omission or other discrepancy in accordance with these Terms and Conditions and your Deposit Account Disclosures and Agreement (DADA) shall relieve us of any liability for such error, omission or discrepancy.
Presenting Items More Than Once:
Once you have used Mobile Deposit to deposit an Item you agree not to present or negotiate, or allow anyone else to present or negotiate, that original Item or a substitute Item of that original Item again for deposit through Mobile Deposit or by any other means.
You agree that Johnson Bank is entitled to act upon instructions we receive with respect to Mobile Deposit under your user ID, password, or other code or authentication method that we require (these components are referred to herein collectively as your “Authentication Method”). To the extent permitted by applicable law, you are liable for all transactions made or authorized with the use of your Authentication Method. Johnson Bank has no responsibility for establishing the identity of any person who uses your Authentication Method. You agree that if you give any component of your Authentication Method to anyone or fail to safeguard its secrecy, you will be in violation of your obligations under your Deposit Account Disclosures and Agreement (DADA) and these Terms and Conditions. You agree to take appropriate steps to ensure that all components of your Authentication Method are protected and kept confidential. By accessing Mobile Deposit with your Authentication Method, you authorize Johnson Bank to complete the requested transaction(s) through Mobile Deposit. Any requests or instructions Johnson Bank receives from you through Mobile Deposit using your Authentication Method shall be considered “in writing” under all applicable law and shall have the same force and legal effect as a writing signed by you. This includes, but is not limited to, inquiries, deposit transactions, Items deposited, Item images, changes to accounts or services or any other communication you provide us through Mobile Deposit using your Authentication Method.
You will complete each deposit promptly. If you are unable to complete your deposit promptly, you will ensure that your mobile device remains securely in your possession until the deposit has been completed. It is your responsibility to establish and maintain procedures to safeguard against unauthorized deposits. You will notify the Johnson Financial Group Customer Support Center immediately by telephone at 1.888.769.3796 or with written notice to the Johnson Financial Group Customer Support Center at 555 Main Street – Suite 390, Racine, WI 53403, if you learn of any loss or theft of original Items. You will ensure the safety and integrity of original Items from the time of receipt until the time of destruction.
Cooperation with Investigations:
You agree to cooperate with Johnson Bank in the investigation of unusual transactions, poor quality transmissions, and resolution of customer claims, including by providing, upon request and without further cost, any originals or copies of Items deposited through Mobile Deposit in your possession and your records relating to such Items and transmissions.
Indemnification and Hold Harmless:
You agree to indemnify and release Johnson Bank from any and all liability, and agree not to make any claim or bring any action against us, relating to: (a) an Item or substitute Item that has been presented or deposited more than once, in violation of these Terms and Conditions, or (b) our honoring or allowing any actions or transactions that are conducted under your Authentication Method or acting upon instructions, messages or authorizations provided to us using your Authentication Method. To the extent that funds in your account are insufficient to cover such amount, we may debit the deficiency amount from any of your other account(s) with Johnson Bank at our sole discretion.
Additional Terms and Conditions for Managing Payees
Johnson Bank allows you to add, delete, or edit payee information using the Bill Payment service.
You agree to provide accurate information to properly identify your payees and direct your payment. You must complete all required fields with accurate information. You further authorize us to update or change any of your payee information as provided by you.

Receiving Money; Money Transfers by Network Banks:
Once a User initiates a transfer of money to your email address or mobile phone number enrolled with the Service, you have no ability to stop the transfer. By using the Zelle Payment Service, you agree and authorize Johnson Bank to initiate credit entries to the bank account you have enrolled.
Most transfers of money to you from other Users will occur within minutes. There may be other circumstances when the payment may take longer. For example, in order to protect you, Johnson Bank, Zelle and the other Network Banks, Johnson Bank may need, or Zelle may need additional time to verify your identity or the identity of the person sending the money. Johnson Bank may also delay or block the transfer to prevent fraud or to meet our regulatory obligations. If Johnson Bank delays or blocks a payment that you have initiated through a request for money, Johnson Bank will notify you in accordance with your User preferences (i.e. email, push notification).
If you are receiving a payment from a business or government agency, your payment will be delivered in accordance with both this Agreement and the procedures of the business or government agency that is sending you the payment.
Sending Money; Debits by Network Banks:
You may send money to another User at your initiation or in response to that User's request for money. You understand that use of this Service by you shall at all times be subject to (i) this Agreement, and (ii) your express authorization at the time of the transaction for Johnson Bank to initiate a debit entry to your bank account. You understand that when you send the payment, you will have no ability to stop it. You may only cancel a payment if the person to whom you sent the money has not yet enrolled in the Service. If the person you sent money to has already enrolled with Zelle, either in the Zelle mobile app or with a Network Bank, the money is sent directly to their bank account (except as otherwise provided below) and may not be canceled or revoked.
In most cases, when you are sending money to another User, the transfer will occur in minutes; however, there are circumstances when the payment may take longer. For example, in order to protect you, Johnson Bank, Zelle and the other Network Banks, Johnson Bank may need additional time to verify your identity or the identity of the person receiving the money. If you are sending money to someone who has not enrolled as a User with Zelle, either in the Zelle mobile app or with a Network Bank, they will receive a text or email notification instructing them on how to enroll to receive the money. You understand and acknowledge that a person to whom you are sending money and who is not enrolling as a User may fail to enroll with Zelle, or otherwise ignore the payment notification, and the transfer may not occur.
The money may also be delayed or the transfer may be blocked to prevent fraud or comply with regulatory requirements. If Johnson Bank delays or blocks a payment that you have initiated, Johnson Bank will notify you in accordance with your User preferences (i.e. email, push notification).
Johnson Bank has no control over the actions of other Users, other Network Banks or other financial institutions that could delay or prevent your money from being delivered to the intended User.
Neither Johnson Bank nor Zelle shall have liability to you for any transfers of money, including without limitation, (i) any failure, through no fault of Johnson Bank or Zelle to complete a transaction in the correct amount, or (ii) any related losses or damages. Neither Johnson Bank nor Zelle shall be liable for any typos or keystroke errors that you may make when using the Service.
You agree that notwithstanding any other provision of this agreement, Johnson Bank is not liable for any fees, costs, losses or damages of any kind incurred by you as a result of our access to accounts; our ability or inability to debit and/or credit accounts in accordance with your funds transfer instructions; any inaccuracy, incompleteness or misinformation contained in the information retrieved on the accounts; any charges imposed, or actions taken, any funds transfer limitations set, any liability arising from the receipt or non-receipt of third party notifications sent to transfer funds recipients' email addresses or mobile phone numbers provided to Johnson Bank.
You agree that you, not Johnson Bank or Zelle, are solely responsible for resolving any payment or disputes that you have with any other member with whom you send money to, or receive or request money from, using the Zelle Payment Service.
THE SERVICE IS INTENDED FOR SENDING MONEY TO FAMILY, FRIENDS AND OTHERS WHOM YOU TRUST. YOU SHOULD NOT USE ZELLE TO SEND MONEY TO PERSONS WITH WHOM YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR OR YOU DO NOT TRUST. ZELLE DOES NOT OFFER A PROTECTION PROGRAM FOR AUTHORIZED PAYMENTS MADE THROUGH THE SERVICE (FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE THE GOODS OR SERVICES THAT YOU PAID FOR, OR THE GOODS OR SERVICES THAT YOU RECEIVED ARE DAMAGED OR ARE OTHERWISE NOT WHAT YOU EXPECTED).
There are limits on the amount of money you can send or receive through the Zelle Payment Service. Johnson Bank may change these limits at any time at our sole discretion.
You may request money from another User. You understand and acknowledge that Users to whom you send payment requests may reject or ignore your request. Neither Johnson Bank nor Zelle guarantee that you will receive money from other Users by sending a payment request, or that you will receive the amount that you request. Neither Johnson Bank nor Zelle accept responsibility if the other User rejects or ignores your request, or sends you an amount that is less than you request. If a User ignores your request, Johnson Bank may decide orZelle may decide, in our sole discretion, that Johnson Bank will not send a reminder or repeat request to that User.
By accepting this Agreement, you agree that you are not engaging in the business of debt collection by attempting to use the Service to request money for the payment or collection of an overdue or delinquent debt; to request money that is owed to another person; or to collect any amounts that are owed pursuant to a court order. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Zelle, its owners, directors, officers agents and Network Banks, including Johnson Bank, from and against all claims, losses, expenses, damages and costs (including, but not limited to, direct, incidental, consequential, exemplary and indirect damages), and reasonable attorney's fees, resulting from or arising out of any request for money that you send that is related to overdue or delinquent amounts.
You agree to receive money requests from other Users, and to only send requests for legitimate and lawful purposes. Requests for money are solely between the sender and recipient and are not reviewed or verified by Johnson Bank or by Zelle. Neither Johnson Bank nor Zelle assume responsibility for the accuracy or legality of such requests and do not act as a debt collector on your behalf or on behalf of the sender of a request for money.
Johnson Bank reserves the right, but assumes no obligation, to terminate your ability to send requests for money, or to specific recipients, if Johnson Bank deems such requests to be potentially unlawful, abusive, or unwelcome by the recipient.
Johnson Bank relies on information provided by you and you authorize Johnson Bank to act on any instruction, which was or reasonably appears to have been sent by you, and to submit fund transfer instructions on your behalf. Johnson Bank is not obligated to take any further steps to confirm or authenticate instructions and will act on them without further confirmation. You agree to accept full responsibility for losses resulting from any of your errors, ambiguities, duplication, or fraud in the information that you provide. If any information you provide is untrue, inaccurate, incomplete, or not current, Johnson Bank reserves the right to recover from you any costs or losses incurred as a direct or indirect result of the information you provide.
Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfers:
Advise Johnson Bank at once if you believe your User ID and Password or biometric information has been lost or stolen, or if you believe that an electronic fund transfer has been made without your permission. Contacting Johnson Bank immediately is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit, if any). Contact information for error resolution is provided in this Agreement.
If you furnish another person with means of access to your account, all transactions completed by this person shall be deemed authorized until you give Johnson Bank notice that additional transactions are unauthorized. Until such notification is received by Johnson Bank, any misuse shall be your sole responsibility. Johnson Bank shall have no liability to you for any errors or losses you sustain in using the Zelle Payment Service except where Johnson Bank fails to exercise ordinary care in processing any transaction.
Liability for Failure to Complete Transfers:
Johnson Bank does not make any representation or warranty that any particular transfer transaction can be completed, or that it will be completed within a particular period of time. You understand and agree that Johnson Bank has no control over the actions of other members, or of other financial institutions, which may prevent or delay a transfer transaction from being completed. Johnson Bank is not obligated to make any transfer you request unless there are sufficient available funds in your account to cover the transfer.
Johnson Bank reserves the right to decline or cancel any payment instructions to carry out change or cancellation requests. Johnson Bank may, at our discretion, not complete a transfer transaction for any reason. Johnson Bank may, at our discretion, accept instructions from any Zelle member or from a member's financial institution to block your attempts to use the Zelle Payment Service to initiate transfer transactions with Zelle Payment Service members.
Johnson Bank will not be liable for any loss or damage resulting from the following:
- If the system supporting the Zelle Payment Service is not working properly.
- For any computer failure or acts or delays by any carrier, agent or other third party operating between Johnson Bank and you, or any other cause beyond our control.
- If your account does not contain enough money to execute the transaction.
- If the money in your account is subject to legal process or other encumbrances restricting the transaction.
- If the transaction would exceed the credit limit on your related line of credit account, if any.
- A technical malfunction known to you at the time you attempt to execute the transaction.
- If a transaction is not initiated in time for Johnson Bank to complete it as agreed, as otherwise provided in our agreements with you, or by federal regulation.
- If the transfer transaction is delayed or cancelled for any reason through no fault of our own.
- If circumstances beyond our control (for example, fire, loss of power, or flood) prevent the transfer.
Johnson Bank does not currently charge any fees for usage of the Zelle Payment Service. Johnson Bank reserves the right to charge additional fees in the future for use of the Zelle Payment Service. You are responsible for any and all telephone access fees and Internet service fees or charges that you may be assessed by your telephone and Internet service provider.

In the event you violate any terms of this Agreement, or there are unauthorized or fraudulent transactions related to your Account or use of the Zelle Payment Service, you agree that Johnson Bank may suspend or terminate your access to the Zelle Payment Service at any time. Johnson Bank reserves the right to terminate your ability to send requests for money, or to specific recipients, if Johnson Bank deems such requests to be potentially unlawful.
