Overdraft Alerts and Budget Service.
Monety Overdraft Alerts and Budget Services are personal finance information management services that allow you to consolidate and track your financial information. Monety will analyze your past transactions to predict your future spending; we will send you Alerts ahead of time if you are at risk of being charged an overdraft fee at any moment. Monety Overdraft Alerts and Budget Services can potentially assist you in avoiding, reducing the risk of, reducing the amount of, bank overdrafts and resulting overdraft fees. Please note that this service does not guarantee that you will not be charged overdrafts.
By agreeing to these Terms you acknowledge that Monety will charge for $1 USD per month to your authorized payment method for Overdraft Alerts and Budget Services. These services are meant to provide you with your information to allow you to organize and manage your finances. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS FEE IS NOT CHARGED FOR CASH ADVANCE APPROVAL AND THAT YOU WILL BE CHARGED THE MONTHLY FEE WHETHER YOU RECEIVE A MONETY CASH ADVANCE OR NOT. You can cancel the Overdraft Alerts and Budget Services at any time.
The Monety Score serves as a proprietary indicator of your ability to payback cash advances. We create this score from the information we collect from your Monety Profile. Please note that this score is not linked to any credit bureau. You authorize Monety to use data provided in your profile and cash advance application(s) including bank, personal, and linked third-party information to generate the proprietary score “Monety Score”.
Cash Advance Service.
To report a complaint relating to your Monety Cash Advances, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT PAYING THE MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION FEE DOES NOT WARRANT POSITIVE QUALIFICATION FOR A CASH ADVANCE.
By submitting an Application, you authorize that approved cash advances be deposited in your authorized bank account.
The following disclosures are made in accordance with the federal law regarding electronic payments, deposits, transfers of funds and other electronic transfers to and from your account(s). There may be limitations on account activity that restrict your ability to make electronic fund transfers. Any such limits are disclosed in the appropriate agreements governing your account.
A. Definitions: Electronic Fund Transfer: Any transfer of funds, other than a transaction originated by check, draft or similar paper instrument, that is initiated through an electronic device or computer to instruct us to debit or credit an account. Electronic Fund Transfers include such electronic transactions as direct deposits or withdrawals of funds, transfers initiated via telephone, website or mobile application. Preauthorized Electronic Fund Transfer: An Electronic Fund Transfer that you have authorized in advance to recur at substantially regular intervals; for example, direct deposits into or withdrawal of funds out of your account.
B. Your Liability: Authorized Transfers: You are liable for all Electronic Fund Transfers that you authorize, whether directly or indirectly. Unauthorized Transfers: Tell us at once if you believe your account or PIN or Access Information (as defined below) is lost or stolen or has been or may be subject to unauthorized Electronic Fund Transfers. Support message us immediately to keep your possible losses to a minimum. You could lose all the money in your account(s). If you tell us within two (2) business days after learning of the loss or theft of your account access device, or after learning of any other unauthorized transfers from your account involving your account access device, you can lose no more than $50 if Electronic Fund Transfers are made without your permission. For these transactions, if you DO NOT tell us within two (2) business days after learning of the loss, theft or unauthorized use, and we can establish that we could have prevented the unauthorized transfer(s) if you had told us in time, you could lose as much as $500. Also, if your periodic account statement shows unauthorized transfers and you DO NOT tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement was delivered to you, you may not get back any money you lose after the sixty (60) day period if we can prove that we could have prevented the unauthorized transfer(s) if you had told us in time. If an extenuating circumstance (such as extended travel or hospitalization) prevents you from promptly notifying us of a suspected lost or stolen access device or of any other suspected unauthorized transfer(s), the time periods specified in this Section B may be extended for a reasonable period.
Monety Charges $1 USD per month for the Overdraft Alerts and Budget Services, and to maintain an active connection to your bank account. Monety requires a connected bank account or debit card for payment of our $1 membership fee, which is billed the sooner of 30 days or your first payday after initiating membership. If payment attempt is declined, Monety reserves the right to cancel your account at its sole discretion. Monety has an additional $2,99 optional fee to expedite the disbursement of approved cash advances. Users may also have the option to make additional voluntary payments or "TIPS" in appreciation of received services.
To repay cash advances you authorize to automatically initiate a repayment of the agreed amount in the form of: (a) an ACH debit transaction (a “Preauthorized ACH Repayment”) from your bank account or, (b) a debit card transaction, Monety reserves the right to select which provided payment method to use to process your repayment. In the case you wish to process the repayment before the Payback Day you may self-initiate repayment of the agreed amount in the form of an ACH debit/debit card transaction (a “Manual Repayment”). Cash advances are payable in one installment.
The preauthorized ACH/debit card repayment will be initiated on the agreed payback day (the “Repayment Date”). Your repayment date is determined by you at the time of your cash advance request. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to defer the preauthorized ACH/debit card repayment based on the balance Monety observes in your Bank Account.
In the case of repayment failure, Monety warrants it will not engage in any collections activities nor report you to a consumer reporting agency. We will help you on avoiding overdraft fees, but we are not responsible for insufficient funds charges, over the limit fees or other bank fees resulting from your failure to maintain sufficient funds in your bank account. We keep track of your balance and we will notify you when your balance is too low and at risk of overdraft, but Monety does not warrant you won't get overdraft charges.
Be advised that All Electronic Fund Transfers are processed by Synapse. Monety only transmits transaction instructions to Synapse for them to process. Questions regarding Electronic Fund Transfers issues and errors relating to transactions and account balances should be directed to: email@example.com.
