07/06/2016

PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS BEFORE AGREEING TO PARTICIPATE IN NORTH SHORE BANK’S (THE “BANK”) DEBIT CARD ALERTS SERVICE (THE “SERVICE”).


The Service

The Debit Card Alerts Service is offered by North Shore Bank.  In response to select transactions made with an eligible Bank-issued credit card or debit card that you have registered with the Service (a “Card”), the Service will send certain alerts (“consumer-selected alerts”) to the mobile telephone number(s) via SMS text messages and/or email address(es) you have designated.  Your mobile telephone numbers, email addresses, and the types of available Service alerts that you wish to receive, are designated by you when you register a Card.   You may change those designations by going to www.northshorebank.com.


Consent:

By providing the Bank with a mobile telephone number, you are expressly consenting to receiving text messages from the Bank, its affiliates, and agents at that number.   You certify you are authorized to grant the Bank consent to contact you at the contact number provided.   This express consent applies to each telephone number that you provide to the Bank now or in the future.


Fees

North Shore Bank does not charge for use of the Service available as of the date you agree to these terms and conditions.   In the event the Bank decides in the future to begin charging a fee for use of the Service, it will provide you with reasonable prior notice.  However, your wireless carrier may charge you for messages you receive as a result of using the Service.   You should contact your carrier for complete pricing details.
 

Consumer-selected alerts

If you registered to receive consumer-selected alerts to your mobile telephone number(s), actual time between a transaction made with your Card that triggers a Transaction Alert and the time the Transaction Alert is sent to your mobile telephone number is dependent on your wireless service and coverage within the area in which you are located at that time.   Consumer-selected alerts may not be available to be sent to your mobile telephone number(s) in all geographic areas.  
 

Termination of Participation

To opt-out of the Service at any time [visit www.northshorebank.com ] and follow the directions provided to discontinue receiving consumer-selected alerts.  You may also opt-out of having consumer-selected alerts sent to your mobile telephone number by texting “STOP” as a reply to any SMS message received as part of the Service.  In addition, at any time you may send a text that says STOP to 57526. You will receive an opt-out confirmation.
 
 

Availability/Interruption

The Service is available when you have your mobile handset within operating range of a carrier with an appropriate signal for data services.   The Service is subject to transmission limitations and service interruptions.  North Shore Bank does not guarantee that the Service (or any portion of the Service) will be available at all times or in all areas.   You acknowledge and agree that  the Bank is not responsible for performance degradations, interruptions, failures or delays due to conditions due to any hardware, software, or networks associated with bringing you the Service including, but not limited to, your mobile handset.  You acknowledge that the Bank shall not be liable to you if you are unable to be sent consumer-selected alerts to your mobile telephone number(s) as you requested. 
 

Content Restrictions

You agree that you will not use the Service for any unlawful or inappropriate purposes, such as gambling, obscenity, pornography, violence, misappropriation, unauthorized access or interference, viruses or harmful code, harassment, unsolicited or deceptive messages, or any other activity that could diminish or harm the reputation of Bank or any of its service providers involved in providing the Service. 
 

Third Party Networks

Changes to these Terms and Conditions or the Service

North Shore Bank may change or modify these Terms and Conditions, including Service features, from time to time by sending you notice of such change.   If you use the Service after the effective date stated in the Notice, you agree to such change and its applicability to you.   Any new features or services that augment or enhance the Service in the future will be considered part of the Service and subject to these Terms and Conditions.
 

Alerts Do Not Amend Existing Terms and Conditions for Cards
