If you use Bounce Protection, your account will be charged $30 for each overdraft item that we pay, up to your protection limit. We will send you a notice each time your items are paid into the overdraft.
Overdrawn accounts must be brought back to a positive balance within 20 days of the first overdraft. Failure to do so may result in revocation of your Bounce Protection privileges.
Bounce Protection is a privilege provided to customers who maintain an account in good standing. We are not obligated to pay any item presented for payment if your account does not contain sufficient funds. We may refuse to pay an overdraft for you at any time, even though we may have previously paid overdrafts for you.
