Right to Stop Payment of Preauthorized Transfers and Procedures for Doing So
If you scheduled a one-time ACH transfer or recurring ACH transfers using a written authorization form, you may be able to cancel the transaction or stop any of these payments. Here's how:
To stop a recurring ACH transfer you preauthorized through Ando, if you are unable to cancel the transaction on the Website or Mobile App, please call Ando at Customer Service to request cancellation of the recurring payment.
To stop payment, first try to cancel the transaction on the website or Mobile App; and, if you are unsuccessful, call or otherwise contact Customer Service at 1-844-960-3939. Your request to stop payment must be received at least three (3) business days before the payment is scheduled to be made. Such a stop payment request will cancel a single, i.e. one (1) recurring payment. If you want to permanently stop all recurring payments to a specific receiver of a transfer, you will be required to put your request in writing to Customer Service within fourteen (14) days after your oral notification to stop such payments. You will need to provide: the name of the payee, the dollar amount of the payment and the date of the payment. If written stop payment notification is not received within fourteen (14) days, the payment in question will be honored as originally authorized and future payments will not be permanently stopped.
Notice of Varying Amounts If the recurring ACH transfers you make might vary in amount, Ando will tell you the transfer date and the amount of the transfer ten (10) days before each payment is scheduled to take place. (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 you set).
3.3 Customer to Customer Transfers/Payments (Pay Friends Service)
Subject to the terms of this Agreement, your Spending Account includes access to the Pay Friends Service ("Pay Friends") via the Mobile App or Website. This service allows you to send money to other Ando customers as well as receive money from other Ando members ("Friend Transfers"). You may send money to another Ando member by inputting the intended recipient’s email address, mobile phone number, or unique Ando Username (the "Username") and the Friend Transfer dollar amount you would like to send. Friend Transfers will be applied to the Spending Account associated with the recipient's email address, mobile phone number, or Username entered by the sender. Approved Friend Transfers are automatically debited from the sender’s Spending Account and deposited to the recipient’s Spending Account within seconds.
Your continued access to Pay Friends is determined by Ando in its sole discretion based on the history of any Ando-branded accounts you have, your use of Pay Friends in the past, direct deposit history and direct deposit amounts and other risk-based factors. Ando may suspend or terminate your use of Pay Friends at any time and without prior notice to you. If you violate the terms of Pay Friends, such actions may be used as a basis to terminate your Spending Account.
Please note: The intended recipient must have an open Ando Spending Account in order to receive a Friend Transfer(s). If you wish to send money to a non-Ando member, your intended payee must sign-up and be approved for an Ando Spending Account prior to receiving your payment.
You may initiate sending money to a non-Ando member by inputting the intended recipient's email address or mobile phone number and the Friend Transfer dollar amount you would like to send. Once a payment is initiated to a non-Ando member, the Friend Transfer dollar amount will immediately be deducted from your Spending Account balance. The non-Ando member will receive a notification via text or email, depending on the information you provided. In order to complete the payment, the non-Ando member will need to sign-up and be approved for an Ando Spending Account within fourteen (14) days to complete the transfer and access the transferred funds.
If the non-Ando member does not sign-up and get approved for a Ando Spending Account within fourteen (14) days of you initiating the payment, then the payment will be cancelled, and the Friend Transfer dollar amount will be returned to your Ando Spending Account. You can cancel a Friend Transfer to a non-Ando member in the Mobile App within fourteen (14) days of initiating the transfer, as long as the non-Ando member has not signed-up and been approved for a Ando Spending Account.
By using the Pay Friends feature, you agree that you will not post, transmit, distribute, or disseminate through any material that: (a) is false, misleading, unlawful, obscene, indecent, lewd, pornographic, defamatory, libelous, threatening, harassing, hateful, abusive, or inflammatory; (b) encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense or gives rise to civil liability or violates these terms and the Agreement; or (c); in our sole judgment, is objectionable, restricts or inhibits any person or entity from using or enjoying any portion of Pay Friends, or which may expose Ando, the Bank, its affiliates or its customers to harm, reputational risk, or liability of any nature.
Using the Pay Friends Transfer Service
To send a Friend Transfer(s), login to the Mobile App or Website and select "Pay Friends" and enter the intended recipient’s email address, mobile phone number, or the recipient's Username.
You must make sure the recipient’s email address, mobile phone number or Username is entered accurately to ensure the Friend Transfer is sent to the correct recipient. The obligation to pay the Friend Transfer will not be excused by an error in the information entered.
Username: By using Pay Friends, you are representing that you are the owner of the mobile phone number or email address listed on your Spending Account. You consent to have the first and last name registered on your Spending Account associated with the Username. By doing so, your first and last name will be visible to other Ando members who search for you by Username. This will assist the sending Ando member in verifying that you are the correct intended recipient of the Friend Transfer.
Please note: The email address, mobile phone number or Username entered during the Friend Transfer will display in your transaction history and on your statement for your reference. Additionally, if a Username was used to facilitate the Friend Transfer, the first name and last initial of the receiving Ando member will display in your transaction history after the Friend Transfer has been processed. An optional reference field is also available to add a personalized message to the recipient. These messages will be visible in your online transaction history but will not be included on your monthly statement.
Fees: There are no fees associated with the use of the Pay Friends Transfer Service.
Mobile Carrier Information: By registering a mobile phone number on your Spending Account, you are certifying that you are the owner of the mobile phone account or have the account owner's permission to register the mobile phone number.
Message and data rates may apply to the use of the mobile device when using the Friend Transfer service via the Mobile App.
Friend Transfer Limits
Friend Transfers may be initiated at any time as long as the transfer request does not exceed the available balance in your Spending Account, or the frequency and limits set forth in this Agreement. Ando may refuse to process any transaction that exceeds any of the limits described below. If your Friend Transfer is denied because your Spending Account balance is not sufficient, you are responsible for making alternate payment arrangements with the intended recipient.
Canceling Friend Transfers: Prior to sending a Friend Transfer, the sender will be prompted to confirm the transaction. Once the Friends Transfer is sent, it cannot be canceled. It is the sender's responsibility to ensure the information is accurate prior to confirming the Friend Transfer request.
3.4 Liability for Failure to Stop Payment of Preauthorized Transfer
If you order Ando to stop a preauthorized payment three (3) business days or more before the transfer is scheduled, Ando does not do so, Ando will be liable for your losses or damages.
3.5 Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfers
Contact Customer Service IMMEDIATELY if you believe your Account number has been stolen. Telephoning is the best way to minimize your possible losses.
If you believe your Account number has been lost or stolen, or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your Account without your permission, contact Customer Service. If you notify Customer Service within two (2) business days after you learn of any unauthorized transactions, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone used your Account without your permission. If you do not notify Customer Service within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Account number and Ando can prove that it could have stopped someone from using your Account without your permission if you had notified Customer Service in time, you could lose as much as $500.00.
Also, if you become aware of and/or your statement shows transactions that you did not make, notify Customer Service at once following the procedures stated in the Section 3.7 below labeled "Information About Your Right to Dispute Errors". If you do not notify Customer Service within sixty (60) days after you become aware of the transaction(s) and/or the statement was made available to you, you may not get back any of the value you lost after the sixty (60) days if Ando and/ can prove that it could have stopped someone from taking value if you had notified Customer Service in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling Customer Service, Ando will extend the time periods. If your Account number has been lost or stolen, Ando will close Account to keep losses down and issue you a new Account number.
If your Account changes you must immediately notify your employer or any other payors or merchants. You must provide them with your new Account number to ensure that your direct deposit and/or ACH Debit activity continues uninterrupted.
3.6 Bank's Liability for Failure to Complete Transactions
If a transaction is not properly completed from your Account on time or in the correct amount, Ando will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. Ando will not be liable, for instance:
If through no fault of Ando, you do not have enough funds available in your Account to complete the Online Transfer;
If access to your Account or linked account has been blocked after you reported your Account number or linked account number lost or stolen;
If there is a hold or your funds are subject to legal or administrative process or other encumbrance restricting their use;
If Ando has reason to believe the requested transaction is unauthorized;
If circumstances beyond Ando's control (such as fire, flood, or computer communication failure) prevent the completion of the transaction, despite reasonable precautions that Ando has taken; or
Any other exception stated in Ando's Agreement with you.
3.7 Information About Your Right to Dispute Errors
In case of errors or questions about your electronic transactions, requests for information about a transaction listed in the statement or receipt, or if you think your statement or receipt is wrong, contact Customer Service at 1-844-960-3939. Ando must allow you to report an error until sixty days after the earlier of the date you electronically accessed your Account, if the error could be viewed in your electronic history, or the date Ando sent the FIRST written history on which the error appeared. You will need to provide:
Your name and Account number, email address associated with your Account and Account number (if any);
Why you believe there is an error, and the dollar amount involved; and
Approximately when the error took place.
If you provide this information orally, Ando may require that you send your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) business days.
Ando will determine whether an error occurred within ten (10) business days after hearing from you and will correct any error promptly. If Ando needs more time, however, it may take up to forty- five (45) days to investigate your complaint or question. If Ando decides to do this, your Account will be credited within ten (10) business days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have use of the money during the time it takes to complete the investigation. If Ando asks you to put your complaint or question in writing and you do not provide it within ten (10) business days, your Account may not be credited.
For errors involving new Accounts, point-of-sale transactions or foreign-initiated transactions, Ando may take up to ninety (90) days to investigate your complaint or question. For new Accounts, Ando may take up to twenty (20) business days to credit your Account for the amount you think is in error.
Ando will tell you the results within three (3) business days after completing the investigation. If Ando decides that there was no error, Ando will send you a written explanation. Copies of the documentation used in the investigation may be obtained by contacting Customer Service.

THIS AGREEMENT REQUIRES ALL DISPUTES BE RESOLVED BY WAY OF BINDING ARBITRATION.
You agree that, except to the extent inconsistent with or preempted by federal law and except as otherwise stated in this Agreement, the laws of the State of New York, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern this Agreement and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and Bank (or Ando), regardless of your location. Except for disputes that qualify for small claims court, all disputes arising out of or related to this Agreement or any aspect of the relationship between you and Bank (or Ando), whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, will be resolved through final and binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator instead of in a court by a judge or jury and you agree that Bank and you are each waiving the right to trial by a jury. You agree that any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted, and you are agreeing to give up the ability to participate in a class action. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under its Consumer Arbitration Rules, as amended by this Agreement. The Consumer Arbitration Rules are available online at: https://www.adr.org/sites/default/files/Consumer%20Rules.pdf.
The arbitrator will conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances, unless the arbitrator determines upon request by you or by Bank that an in-person hearing is appropriate. Any in-person appearances will be held at a location which is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, such determination should be made by the AAA or by the arbitrator. The arbitrator's decision will follow the terms of this Agreement and will be final and binding. The arbitrator will have authority to award temporary, interim or permanent injunctive relief or relief providing for specific performance of this Agreement, but only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, nothing in this Agreement will preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state or local agencies and, if the law allows, they can seek relief against Bank for you.
If any portion of this Arbitration Provision is deemed invalid or unenforceable, such a finding shall not invalidate any remaining portion of this Arbitration Provision, this Agreement, or any other agreement entered into by you with us. However, notwithstanding any language in this Arbitration Provision or this Agreement to the contrary, the Class Action Waiver is not severable from the remainder of this Arbitration Provision and, in the event that the Class Action Waiver is held to be invalid and unenforceable, and subject to any right of appeal that may exist with respect to such determination, any class action or representative proceeding shall be determined in a court of law and will not be subject to this Arbitration Provision.
