Terms of Service for Your eDeposit Account
Consent to Terms of Service
By submitting an application through the eDeposit website, activating or using any service provided by eDeposit, collectively or singularly a "Financial Service", you agree to the terms of this account and the Schedule of Fees that may be imposed. Continued use of your account with eDeposit means you agree to these rules, to pay the fees as published, and for eDeposit to collect the fees, as earned, directly from your account.
In addition, by establishing an account with eDeposit you accept and agree to the current terms and conditions of and all future amendments to this disclosure and all other account disclosures provided to you. Disclosures may be provided electronically via email or may be updated on our website.
To become an “Account Owner” you must establish an account with eDeposit. eDeposit accounts are created by supplying all required information via the online account application (this information is collectively referred to as the "Registration Data") completely and truthfully.
In some cases, an eDeposit account may be opened for you on your behalf. Your activation of that account requires certification by you of the information on the account. eDeposit may require you to confirm personal account information and/or provide additional information to activate the account.
eDeposit reserves the right to decline any application for any reason or if we determine that any of the Registration Data is false, incomplete or inaccurate. In addition, eDeposit reserves the right to terminate your right to use our Financial Services for these reasons.
If you are applying as an individual, you expressly represent and warrant that you have the capacity under applicable law to enter into a legally binding contract; for example, if you are a minor, you may only use eDeposit's Services in conjunction with your parent(s) or guardian(s). If you are applying as a business, you expressly represent and warrant that you have been duly authorized by your company, partnership, or other legal entity to enter into agreements on behalf of that entity.
Authorization to Hold Funds and Recordkeeping
By becoming an Account Owner, you authorize eDeposit to maintain possession of all funds deposited, including any additions to those funds (together the "Deposited Amounts"), and to deliver and dispose of the Deposited Amounts according to the terms and conditions of these Terms of Service.
eDeposit will acknowledge receipt of all Deposited Amounts by posting the amount and the date of receipt for your view within your account on the eDeposit website. At your request, eDeposit can also provide email notification whenever funds are delivered to you, held for benefit of any counter party or transferred to another party based upon your instructions. You hereby irrevocably appoint eDeposit, with full power of substitution, as your true and lawful agent and attorney in fact with full power and authority in your name, place and stead to manage, transfer and otherwise act with respect to all funds in your account that you place on hold for the benefit of any counter party, including without limitation to allow eDeposit sole and absolute discretion to maintain the funds in your account, maintain a hold of the funds in your account, transfer the funds to the designated counter party, or return the funds to you. Transaction information displayed on your account within the eDeposit website, as well as email notices, if any, shall be conclusive proof of the delivery and receipt of funds, absent manifest error. Upon your request, eDeposit will also provide confirmation to any third party that it is holding Deposited Amounts on your behalf.
You acknowledge that eDeposit is not an FDIC-insured institution, but that eDeposit shall maintain all Deposited Amounts in accounts at one or more FDIC-insured financial institutions.
Deposited Amounts that are held at any financial institution used by eDeposit will be provided FDIC pass-through insurance, to the extent provided by the financial institution holding the funds and by the FDIC.
Availability and Return of Funds
Deposited Funds will become available to be used for eDeposit’s Financial Services after certain time periods specified by eDeposit and in accordance with banking, credit and debit card processing rules and procedures. eDeposit will provide estimated time frames deposited funds will become available by deposit instrument type on our web site and on your account information pages.
Deposited Amounts, once available, remain available to you until designated as funds held on behalf of another party, are transferred to a payee at your direction or are withdrawn from the eDeposit account. You will be required to participate in any transaction that occurs in your account by either initiating the transaction or accepting the transaction initiated by another party.
You may request the withdrawal of any portion of your available balance that is not on hold or pending as a payment, less applicable fees. eDeposit will effect such return via electronic funds transfer to an external depository account that has been verified as an authorized eDeposit funding source. If no external depository account has been established for the eDeposit account owner, eDeposit will mail a check or other value bearing instrument to the eDeposit account owner’s address of record. If eDeposit suspects, detects or is notified of potential fraud, eDeposit may hold your funds until the absence of fraud has been confirmed.
Upon your notification to eDeposit or at eDeposit's discretion your eDeposit account may be closed. Closing your account immediately cancels your access to all of eDeposit’s Financial Services. Upon closure, eDeposit shall return to you all funds as they become available and/or are released from counterparty hold obligations. All applicable fees and charges will be deducted prior to funds being distributed as per these Terms of Service. You waive advance notice of discontinuing access to the Financial Services under Maryland Code, Commercial Law Section 22-814.
User Fees; Transaction Authorization
You agree to be responsible for timely payment of all fees and charges as defined in the current eDeposit Fee Schedule incurred in connection with use of eDeposit's Services. At eDeposit’s sole discretion, all applicable fees will either be deducted from your eDeposit account or charged to the credit card registered with eDeposit. eDeposit may change its fees and charges at any time.
You agree that by requesting eDeposit to move funds from one or more of your designated, verified funding sources established as part of the eDeposit Financial Service, the movement of the funds is irrevocable. Additionally, by initiating transactions to other participants of the eDeposit service through the eDeposit service you agree that all transactions are confirmed to be designated as available funds, designated specifically for the benefit of the receiving party and intended for financial settlement of an external agreement between you and your counterparty. eDeposit is not a party to the agreement between you and any third party nor does eDeposit warrant the merchantability of the product or service to be provided by either party to the other.
You agree not to attempt to disavow any transaction initiated by you or authorized by you via the eDeposit service. All transactions initiated by you in connection with the eDeposit Financial Services are final in settlement and may not be reversed through third party processes, whether through funding sources established by you (credit card, debit card, electronic transfer from bank accounts, etc.) or contributions made by physical media (cash, checks, etc.). Notwithstanding the foregoing, should the eDeposit account or funding sources be established through fraudulent methods or means, eDeposit and the affected parties will work in cooperation to effectively correct the fraudulent transaction.
You agree that transactions initiated and/or authorized by you via credit card, debit card and/or ACH to fund your eDeposit account are transfers from an account or accounts owned by you (or you possess owner authorization to use) to another account owned by you or that you possess owner authorization to use. You represent and warrant those transactions are for the purposes of moving funds from one or more sources owned and/or controlled by you to your account at eDeposit which is also owned and/or controlled by you. You will assist eDeposit and defend eDeposit from challenges to the veracity of those transactions and participate in and be wholly responsible for the defense of those transactions including costs to defend any claims with respect to the transfer of funds between accounts controlled by you.
If your account is terminated or suspended for insufficient funds or non-payment, you agree to be responsible for collection costs incurred by eDeposit to obtain payment including but not limited to administrative and attorneys’ fees as applicable.
