You agree you are responsible for any loss or overdraft plus any applicable fees to your account due to an item being returned. You authorize us to debit the amount of an item from your account, in the event that you transmit through remote deposit a dishonored item.

You will not deposit or otherwise indorse to a third party the original item (the original check) and no person will receive a transfer, presentment, or return of, or otherwise be charged for, the item (either the original item, or a paper or electronic representation of the original item) such that the person will be asked to make payment based on an item it has already paid. Other than the digital image of an original check that you remotely deposit through the Application, there are no other duplicate images of the original check. You have instituted procedures to ensure that each original check was authorized by the drawer in the amount stated on the original check and to the payee stated on the original check. You are authorized to enforce each item transmitted or are authorized to obtain payment of each item on behalf of a person entitled to enforce such transmitted item. The information you provided remains true and correct and, in the event any such information changes, you will immediately notify us of the change. You have not knowingly failed to communicate any material information to us. You have possession of each original check deposited using the Application and no one will submit, or has submitted, the original check for payment.
