Some Participating Merchants may permit you to receive cash back as part of your purchase. Purchases made with your card, including any purchase where you receive cash, are referred to as “Point of Sale” transactions and will cause your “designated account” to be debited for the amount of the purchase.

Currently the currency conversion rate used by Mastercard International to determine the transaction amount in US dollars for such transactions is based on rates observed in the wholesale market or government-mandated rates, where applicable. The currency conversion rate used by Mastercard International is generally the rate of the applicable currency on the date that the transaction occurred.

NOTICE OF RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
The use of any electronic fund transfer services described in this document creates certain rights and responsibilities regarding these services as described below.
RIGHT TO RECEIVE DOCUMENTATION OF YOUR TRANSFERS
TRANSACTION RECEIPTS. Depending on the location of an ATM, you may not be given the option to receive a receipt if your transaction is $15.00 or less. Upon completing a transaction of more than $15.00, you will receive a printed receipt documenting the transaction (unless you choose not to get a paper receipt). These receipts (or the transaction number given in place of the paper receipt) should be retained to verify that a transaction was performed. A receipt will be provided for any transaction of more than $15.00 made with your Debit Card at a Participating Merchant. If the transaction is $15.00 or less, the Participating Merchant is not required to provide a receipt. PERIODIC STATEMENTS. If your account is subject to receiving a monthly statement, all EFT transactions will be reported on it. If your account is subject to receiving a statement less frequently than monthly, then you will continue to receive your statement on that cycle, unless there are EFT transactions, in which case you will receive a monthly statement. In any case you will receive your statement at least quarterly.
PREAUTHORIZED DEPOSITS. 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.
USING YOUR CARD AND PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (“PIN”). In order to assist us in maintaining the security of your account and the terminals, the Debit Card remains our property and may be revoked or canceled at any time without giving you prior notice. You agree not to use your Debit Card for a transaction that would cause your account balance to go below zero, or to access an account that is no longer available or lacks sufficient funds to complete the transaction, including any available line of credit. We will not be required to complete any such transaction, but if we do, we may, at our sole discretion, charge or credit the transaction to another account; you agree to pay us the amount of the improper withdrawal or transfer upon request.
Certain transactions involving your Debit Card require use of your PIN. Your PIN is used to identify you as an authorized user. Because the PIN is used for identification purposes, you agree to notify First Bank Kansas immediately if your Debit Card is lost or if the secrecy of your PIN is compromised. You also agree not to reveal your PIN to any person not authorized by you to use your Debit Card or to write your PIN on your Debit Card or on any other item kept with your Debit Card. We have the right to refuse a transaction on your account when your Debit Card or PIN has been reported lost or stolen or when we reasonably believe there is unusual activity on your account. The security of your account depends upon your maintaining possession of your Debit Card and the secrecy of your PIN. You may change your PIN if you feel that the secrecy of your PIN has been compromised. You may change your PIN by visiting a First Bank Kansas branch calling 1-844-492-8038.

OUR LIABILITY FOR FAILURE TO STOP PREAUTHORIZED TRANSFER PAYMENTS. If you order us to stop one of the payments and have provided us with the information we need at least three (3) business days prior to the scheduled transfer, and we do not stop the transfer, we will be liable for your losses or damages.
YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO NOTIFY US OF LOSS OR THEFT.
If you believe your Debit Card or PIN or internet banking access code has been lost or stolen, call us at:
785-825-2211 within Salina or 1-877-402-9019 outside Salina
(8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central Standard time) or write to:
First Bank Kansas
Customer Service Department
P.O. BOX 1337

CONSUMER LIABILITY. Tell us at once if you believe your Debit Card or PIN or internet banking access 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 check. Telephoning 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 applicable). If you tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Debit Card or PIN or internet banking access code you can lose no more than fifty dollars ($50) if someone used your Debit Card or PIN or internet banking access code without your permission. If you do not tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Debit Card or PIN or internet banking access code and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your Debit Card or PIN or internet banking access code without your permission if you had given us notice, you can lose as much as five hundred dollars ($500).
Also, if your statement shows transfers you did not make, including those made by card, code, or other means, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement was transmitted to you, you may not receive back any money you lost after the sixty (60) days, and therefore, you may not get back any money in your account (including your maximum overdraft line of credit, if applicable), if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money had you given us notice in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or hospital stay) keeps you from giving the notice, we will extend the time periods.
CONSUMER LIABILITY FOR UNAUTHORIZED TRANSACTIONS INVOLVING DEBIT MASTERCARD. The limitations on your liability for unauthorized transactions described above generally apply to all electronic fund transfers. However, different limitations apply to certain transactions involving your card with the Mastercard® branded card.
If you promptly notify us about an unauthorized transaction involving your card and the unauthorized transaction took place on your Mastercard® branded card, including any PIN-based ATM or POS transactions, zero liability will be imposed on you for the unauthorized transaction. In order to qualify for the zero liability protection, you must have exercised reasonable care in safeguarding your card from the risk of loss or theft and, upon becoming aware of such loss or theft, promptly reported the loss or theft to us.
ILLEGAL USE OF DEBIT MASTERCARD
You agree not to use your DEBIT MASTERCARD for any illegal transactions, including internet gambling and similar activities.

Notification should be made as soon as possible if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transaction listed on the statement or receipt. You must contact First Bank Kansas no later than 60 days after we sent you the first statement on which the problem or error appears. You must be prepared to provide the following information:

We will determine whether an error occurred within ten (10) business days (twenty (20) business days for new accounts) after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to forty-five (45) days (ninety (90) days for new accounts and foreign initiated or point of sale transfers) to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within ten (10) business days (twenty (20) business days for new accounts) for the amount which 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 ten (10) business days, we may not credit your account. The extended time periods for new accounts apply to all electronic fund transfers that occur within the first thirty (30) days after the first deposit to the account is made, including those for foreign initiated or Point of Sale transactions. We will tell you the results within three (3) 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.
Electronic Mail (E-mail): You should not rely on e-mail if you need to report an unauthorized transaction from one of your accounts or if you need to stop a payment that is scheduled to occur. E-mail transmissions that are outside of Electronic Banking are not secure. We advise you not to send or ask for sensitive information such as Account Numbers, Password, Account Information, etc. via any general public email system.
LIABILITY FOR FAILURE TO COMPLETE TRANSACTION. 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 as provided by law. However, there are some exceptions. We will NOT be liable, for instance:
- If through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer.
- If the transfer would result in your exceeding the credit limit on your line of credit, if you have one.
- If the electronic terminal was not working properly and you knew about the breakdown before you started the transfer.
- If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood, computer or machine breakdown, or failure or interruption of communications facilities) prevent the transfer, despite reasonable precautions we have taken.
- If we have terminated our Agreement with you.
- When your Debit Card has been reported lost or stolen or we have reason to believe that something is wrong with a transaction.
- If we receive inaccurate or incomplete information needed to complete a transaction.
- In the case of preauthorized transfers, we will not be liable where there is a breakdown of the system which would normally handle the transfer.
- If the funds in the account are subject to legal action preventing a transfer to or from your account.
- If the electronic terminal does not have enough cash to complete the transaction.
There may be other exceptions provided by applicable law.
CHARGES FOR TRANSFERS OR THE RIGHT TO MAKE TRANSFERS
Service charges, if any, are deducted from your account monthly with the exception of out-of-network ATM transaction fees which are charged on the day the transaction posts to your account. Service charges include charges for EFTs. All our service charges, including service charges for EFTs, are listed in the Accounts and Services brochure you receive when you open your Account or obtain a new electronic service. These documents are also available upon request from any of our offices. Some ATM networks charge a “surcharge” that is assessed at the time your transaction is approved. This fee amount may vary. To offset network-handling costs, there is a minimal $2.00 Out-of-Network ATM transaction fee for using the card at another financial institution’s ATM.
DISCLOSURE OF ACCOUNT INFORMATION.
You agree that merchant authorization messages transmitted in connection with Point of Sale transactions are permissible disclosures of account information, and you further agree to release First Bank Kansas and hold it harmless from any liability arising out of the transmission of these messages.

AMENDING OR TERMINATING THE AGREEMENT
We may change this agreement from time to time.
