In this Disclosure and Agreement, the words "I," "me," "my" and "us" mean the consumer or business that uses any of the eDeposits Remote Deposit Capture Services (the "Services") described in this Disclosure and Agreement. "JCB" means Johnson City Bank. My use of the eDeposits Remote Deposit Capture Services and my acceptance of the JCB Account Agreement are hereby incorporated into and made a part of this Disclosure and Agreement. In the event of a discrepancy between this Disclosure and Agreement and Account Agreement, this Disclosure and Agreement will control.
Use of the Services – By providing the link for the eDeposits service on JCB Online Banking and access to the mobile deposit services, JCB have authorized me to remotely deposit to any of my accounts (the "Account") with JCB by electronically transmitting a digital image of any paper checks I receive from other parties. My use of the Services constitutes my acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Disclosure and Agreement. I agree to comply with the hardware and software requirements with the indicated specifications posted at www.j-cbank.com.
Upon receipt of the digital image, JCB will review the image for acceptability. I understand and agree that receipt of an image does not occur until after JCB notifies me of receipt of the image via the Deposit History feature. I understand that, in the event I receive a notification from JCB confirming receipt of an image, such notification does not mean that the image contains no errors or that JCB is responsible for any information I transmit to JCB. JCB is not responsible for any image that is not received from me. Following receipt of the image, JCB may process the image by preparing a "substitute check" or clearing the item as an image. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary. JCB reserves the right, within their sole and absolute discretion, to accept or reject any item for remote deposit into my Account. JCB’s acceptance of my check(s) does not guarantee the check(s) will clear the payee's account. I understand that any amount credited to my Account for items deposited using the Services is a provisional credit and I agree to indemnify JCB against any loss suffered because of the acceptance of the imaged check deposits.
In addition, I agree that I will not (i) modify, change, alter, translate, create derivative works from, reverse engineer, disassemble or decompile the technology or Service, (ii) copy or reproduce all or any part of the technology or Service; or (iii) interfere, or attempt to interfere, with the technology or Service.
