This Terms of Service agreement (this "Agreement"), as it is modified from time to time in accordance with its terms, sets forth the terms and conditions governing your use of the remittance services (the “Service”) offered by PNB Remittance Centers, Inc. (“PNBRCI”). This Agreement is between you and PNBRCI, and PNBRCI may rely on and enforce this Agreement. Please read it carefully. By signing below or by using the Service, you agree to be bound by and comply with all of its terms. The words “we” and “us” and “our” refer to PNBRCI. The terms “you” or “your” refer to the sender of a remittance and user of the Service under this Agreement.
The Service is a remittance service that is available to PNBRCI customers for the remittance of money to beneficiaries in the Philippines. The Service allows you to send or remit money to the Philippines via the facilities of PNBRCI and/or Philippine National Bank (the “Bank”). You should designate the savings/checking deposit account and/or debit/credit card that would be your source of funds. Unless otherwise indicated, currency references are to U.S. dollars. Beneficiaries of the remittance may be enrolled with the Service through telephone, the internet or through application in writing at any PNBRCI branch. Only enrolled phone numbers up to a maximum of 3 (home, office and mobile) will be accepted into the Service and if used for enrolling Recipient information/account or issuing remittance instructions, transaction will be considered valid assuming that the caller met PNBRCI identification, verification and due diligence standards to its satisfaction over the phone. The term “Recipient” means the person specified by you as the authorized recipient of a remittance transfer.

|Oklahoma||US Virgin Islands||Rhode Island||Wisconsin||South Dakota|

This E-Sign Disclosure and Consent Section (this “Disclosure”) applies to all Communications for those products and services offered through the Service that are not otherwise governed by the terms and conditions of an electronic disclosure and consent.
"Communication" means all of the following:
All electronic Communications will be deemed to have been received by you no later than 2 business days after we send it to you by email or post the Communication on our website, whether or not you have received the email or viewed the Communication on PNBRCI’s website. An electronic Communication by email is considered to be sent at the time that our email server sends it to the email address provided by you. An electronic Communication posted on PNBRCI’s website is considered to be sent at the time it is publicly available.
You agree that these are reasonable procedures for sending and receiving electronic Communications. You agree to carefully review all Communications upon receipt or posting.
Upon registering for our web remittance services, you will designate a bank account and/or credit/debit card from which, payment for your remittance(s) may be taken. Upon receipt of your request to remit funds to a Recipient, PNBRCI will initiate an ACH debit to your designated savings/checking account or debit/credit card in payment of your remittance transactions. Once PNBRCI receives final payment of the transaction amount from your bank, credit union or credit/debit card company, the remittance instructions will be sent to the Bank for payment to the Recipient. You should ensure that funds are available in your bank or credit union account or credit/debit card to cover such remittances. On a case-to-case basis and at the sole discretion of PNBRCI, PNBRCI may process a remittance payment immediately without waiting for receipt of final payment from your bank, credit union or credit/debit card company.
PNBRCI maintains records of your Service account and your Service transactions. You may request copies of these records at any time by calling the Service toll free number. Copies of these records may be emailed or mailed to you at your preference.
If a payment is undeliverable, or if it is rejected by the Recipient, the payment will be cancelled. Generally, the funds will be returned to you, minus a small fee. If a payment is cancelled, you will be notified by an email or text which will describe the status of those funds.
Cancellation of remittance transfers scheduled in advance (12 CFR 1005.36(c)):
For any remittance transfer scheduled by the sender at least 3 business days before the date of the transfer, we will comply with any oral or written request to cancel the remittance transfer from the sender if the request to cancel (1) enables us to identify the sender's name and address or telephone number and the particular transfer to be cancelled; and (2) Is received by us at least 3 business days before the scheduled date of the remittance transfer.
Cancellation of other preauthorized transfers (12 CFR 1005.10(c)):
Right to stop payment and procedure for doing so. If you have told us in advance to make regular payments out of your account, you can stop any of these payments. Here's how:
Call us at 1-855-889-7788 or write us at the following address:
PNBRCI Customer Service
316 W 2nd St., Suite 701
Los Angeles, CA 90012
in time for us to receive your request 3 business days or more before the payment is scheduled to be made. If you call, we may also require you to put your request in writing and get it to us within 14 days after you call. (We will charge you the fee set forth in the Fee Tab on our website for each stop- payment order you give.) Your oral stop-payment order ceases to be binding after 14 days if you fail to provide the required written confirmation.
Notice of varying amounts. When a preauthorized electronic fund transfer from your account will vary in amount from the previous transfer under the same authorization or from the preauthorized amount, the person you are going to pay or the financial institution must send the consumer written notice of the amount and date of the transfer at least 10 days before the scheduled date of transfer. (You may choose instead to get this notice only when the payment would differ by more than a certain amount from the previous payment, or when the amount would fall outside certain limits that you set.)
Liability for failure to stop payment of preauthorized transfer. If you order us to stop one of these payments 3 business days or more before the transfer is scheduled, and we do not do so, we will be liable for your losses or damages.
Fees will be charged to you for every payment request and will be deducted from your account in addition to the amount you authorize us to transmit to the Recipient. By providing and confirming a transaction using the Service, you are deemed to have accepted the fees under the fees tab provided in PNB Web Remit website for such transaction of the service. Fees are subject to change upon prior notice to you by any method permitted under this Agreement.
Your bank and/or your credit/debit card issuer may charge you fees for the payments you make for your remittances. Your credit/debit card company may charge you cash advance fees. These fees that your bank and/or credit/debit card issuer charge, if any, are their fees for using their payment services.
Use of the Service is limited. You cannot transfer more than $500.00 in any single transaction or more than $2,999.00 within 3 day rolling period or $5,000.00 within any 30 day period. You may not send funds from multiple accounts. For purposes of these limitations, PNBRCI will combine funds from the same account, regardless of the name of the remitter. Moreover, funds initiating from the same address or being received at the same address are subject to consolidation and these limitations. For example, if you and your spouse each charge the same bank or credit union account $1,000.00 to fund a payment(s), your funding requests will be combined and each request will be included in the calculation of whether the $2,999.00 3 day rolling period or $5,000.00 limit on aggregate transactions made within a 30-day period has been reached. PNBRCI reserves the right to change the foregoing limits at any time but you will be notified of such a change by Communication.
You agree that consumer reports may be obtained in connection with your use of the Service. After receiving your request, PNBRCI will inform you as to whether such a report was requested, and if so, the name and address of each agency which was furnished such a report.

You agree to hold PNBRCI and the Bank harmless from any losses, costs, expenses or damages that either of them may incur in connection with the collection of the negative balance or amount or reversed payment or in defending any of the foregoing actions, including court costs and attorneys’ fees. You acknowledge that transactions may be reported to a collection agency or credit bureau if you do not pay PNBRCI in accordance with this Agreement. PNBRCI or the Bank’s making of any payment without receiving sufficient funds will not create any obligation on the part of PNBRCI or the Bank to make any such payment in the future.
You represent and warrant that all information you provide to PNBRCI and the Bank in connection with the Service, including but not limited to your application information and all data entered in connection with any payment or other transaction, will be complete and accurate in all respects. PNBRCI and the Bank are entitled to rely on any information you provide, and you agree to update your personal information once it changes.

IF YOU PROVIDE FALSE INFORMATION, YOUR ABILITY TO USE THE SERVICE MAY BE TERMINATED AND ALL PENDING PAYMENTS MAY BE CANCELLED. IN ADDITION, YOU MAY BE SUBJECT TO CIVIL AND CRIMINAL PENALTIES. Furthermore, you represent and warrant in connection with any payment that:
You agree to indemnify and hold PNBRCI, the Bank, their affiliates, shareholders, directors, officers, employees, agents, suppliers and subcontractors harmless from any claim or demand, including but not limited to reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your use of the Service.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES. ACCORDINGLY, SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
If, after receiving a timely, complete and accurate payment request, a payment is not completed in the correct amount, PNBRCI will be liable only for your proximately-caused actual damages as set forth below, to the extent required by applicable law.

If you have no outstanding obligations in connection with the Service, any remaining balance will be credited to the deposit account you used to fund payments. Termination of this Agreement will not affect your liability arising from acts or omissions prior to termination, including your liability for any payment.

You may not assign this Agreement to any other party. PNBRCI/the Bank may assign this Agreement or delegate certain of their rights and responsibilities under this Agreement to third parties without notice to you.
PNBRCI may not be deemed to have waived any of its rights or remedies under this Agreement unless such waiver is in writing and is signed by the party alleged to have waived. The delay or failure of PNBRCI to exercise or enforce any right or remedy in connection with this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right or remedy or any other rights or remedies. A waiver on any occasion may not be construed as a bar or waiver of any rights or remedies on any other occasion.

Terminal transfers. You can get a receipt at the time you initiate an electronic fund transfer at an electronic terminal.
Periodic Statements. You will get a monthly account statement (unless there are no transfers in a particular month. In any case you will get the statement at least quarterly).
Preauthorized credits. 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 account- holding financial institution must provide notice to you by (i) providing oral or written notice of the transfer within 2 business days after the transfer occurs; or (ii) providing oral or written notice, within 2 business days after the date on which the transfer was scheduled to occur, that the transfer did not occur; or (iii) providing a readily available telephone line that you may call to determine whether the transfer occurred and disclosing the telephone number on the initial disclosure of account terms and on each periodic statement. A financial institution need not provide notice of a transfer if the payor gives the consumer positive notice that the transfer has been initiated.
When you use an ATM not owned by us, you may be charged a fee by the ATM operator or any network used (and you may be charged a fee for a balance inquiry even if you do not complete a fund transfer).
If we are or are deemed to be an automated teller machine (“ATM”) operator, then we hereby disclose that a fee may be imposed for providing electronic fund transfer services or a balance inquiry and fees may be imposed by any network used to complete the transaction.
