CashCard Network ATM CARD

This Card can be used either as an ATM card or an On-Line Point-of-Sale Card. If you use the On-Line POS option and the merchant utilizes a "PIN Pad" to initiate POS transactions, you will need to select the 'Debit' option and input your PIN (this is the same PIN that you have assigned to your ATM transactions). The withdrawal will be deducted from your account immediately, the same way that ATM withdrawals are deducted.

Please refer to the section title '(On-Line) Point-of-Sale' for further information regarding On-Line transactions.

Types of Transfers: You may use the automated teller machine (ATM) card and personal identification number (PIN) issued to you to initiate transactions at ATMs of ours, ATMs within the networks identified on your card and such other facilities as we may designate from time to time. Unless you specify a different account during Automated Teller Machine (ATM) transactions, your Primary Account will be used for your transactions. Your Primary Account number and information may be obtained from the ATM Request Form. At present you may use your card to (some of these services may not be available at all ATMs):

There is no charge for ATM withdrawals at machines owned by us.

There is a $1.00 charge for each ATM withdrawal at machines we do not own.

your account agreement.

VISA CHECK CARD

You can use your First Community Bank VISA Check Card as an ATM card or a Point-of-Sale (POS) card, both on-line and off-line.

If the merchant utilizes a Pin Pad to POS transactions, you will need to select the 'Debit' or 'Credit' option after swiping your card in the machine. If you select 'Debit', you will need to input your PIN (this is the same PIN that you have assigned to your ATM transactions). The withdrawal will be deducted from your account immediately, the same way that ATM withdrawals are deducted. You can also obtain a cash advance or cash back in this manner. Please refer to the section titled (On-Line) Point-of-Sale for further information regarding these types of transactions.

If you select 'Credit', the withdrawal will be considered Off-line POS and have a delay in posting to your account. The merchant must honor Visa cards in order for you to conduct the Off-line POS transaction. You will need to sign for this purchase as if you were using a credit card.

Some merchants accept only one of these two options (on-line or off-line). The on-line POS option is not available where a merchant does not utilize the PIN pad procedure. The merchant will insert your card into their normal credit card machine for processing, thereby making the transaction off-line POS.

Types of Transactions: You may use the card and PIN issued you to pay for purchases from merchants who have agreed to accept the card at Point of Sale (POS) terminals within the networks identified on your card and such other terminals as the Bank may designate from time to time. Point of Sale (POS) transactions will be deducted from your Primary Account. Point of Sale (POS) transactions involving a refund will be credited to your Primary Account. Your Primary Account number and information may be obtained from the POS Request Form.

Limitations on Frequency and Amount:

You may purchase up to a maximum of $1 500.00 worth of goods and services per day, exclusive of ATM withdrawals.

Fees and Charges:

Lost card replacement fee $6.00.

Point of Sale (POS) transactions will be deducted from your Primary Account. Point of Sale (POS) transactions involving a refund will be credited to your Primary Account. Your Primary Account number and information may be obtained from the POS Request Form.

Electronic check conversion is a payment process in which a merchant or other payee (after obtaining your authorization) uses your check to gather routing, account, and check number information to initiate a one-time EFT. When information from your check is used to make an electronic fund transfer, funds may be withdrawn from your account as soon as the same day you make your payment. This type of EFT transaction involving a consumer account is covered by the Electronic Funds Transfer Act and this disclosure. A description of the transaction will appear on your statement.

Re-presented Check Transactions and Fees. You may authorize a merchant to electronically collect a fee associated with the re-presentment of a check that is returned due to insufficient or unavailable funds. The resulting fee transaction if debited as an EFT from a consumer account is covered by the Electronic Funds Transfer Act and this disclosure. When a merchant re-presents a check electronically, that transaction is not covered by the Electronic Funds Transfer Act or this disclosure. A description of the transaction will appear on your statement.

The following limitations may be applicable to your accounts, except as provided by law:

Liability for Unauthorized MasterCard Point of Sale Debit Card Transactions. Tell us, AT ONCE, if you believe your MasterCard point of sale debit card has been lost or stolen or of any unauthorized transactions. Your liability for unauthorized use of your point of sale debit card with the MasterCard logo when it is used as a MasterCard point of sale debit card will not exceed (A) Zero dollars ($0.00) if the conditions set forth below have been met, or (B) if those conditions have not been met, the lesser of fifty dollars ($50.00) or the amount of money, property, labor, or services obtained by the unauthorized use before notification to us. Zero liability will apply only if: (1) you can demonstrate that you have exercised reasonable care in safe-guarding your card from risk of loss or theft; and (2) you have not reported two or more incidents of unauthorized use to us within the preceding twelve (12) months; and (3) your account is in good standing. These liability limits apply only to United States issued MasterCard branded cards. If the transaction does not meet the conditions set forth above, these limits with respect to unauthorized transactions may be exceeded to the extent allowed under applicable law (see Liability for Unauthorized Transfers paragraph below). For specific restrictions, limitations and other details, see your Cardholder Agreement. "Unauthorized use" means the use of your point of sale debit card by a person, other than you, who does not have actual, implied, or apparent authority for such use, and for which you receive no benefit. To notify us of lost or stolen cards, or of unauthorized transactions, call or write to us at the telephone number or address set forth below. This will help prevent unauthorized access to your account and minimize any inconvenience.

The following limitations may be applicable to your accounts, except as provided by law:

Liability for Unauthorized VISA Point of Sale Debit Card Transactions. Tell us, AT ONCE, if you believe your VISA point of sale debit card has been lost or stolen or of any unauthorized transactions. Your liability for unauthorized VISA point of sale debit card transactions that take place on the VISA system is Zero dollars ($0.00). We may require you to provide a written statement regarding claims of unauthorized VISA point of sale debit card transactions.

These provisions limiting your liability do not apply to VISA commercial credit cards, ATM transactions, or PIN transactions not processed by VISA; and apply only to cards issued in the United States. With respect to unauthorized transactions, these limits may be exceeded to the extent allowed under applicable law (see Liability for Unauthorized Transfers paragraph below) only if we determine that you were grossly negligent or fraudulent in the handling of your account or point of sale debit card. For specific restrictions, limitations, and other details see your Cardholder Agreement. To notify us of lost or stolen cards, or of unauthorized transactions, call or write to us at the telephone number or address set forth below.

In addition to the limitations set forth above, the following limitations may be applicable to your accounts:

Liability for Unauthorized Transfers. Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your card, ATM PIN, POS card or PIN, Audio Response PIN, or online banking PIN has been lost or stolen or if you believe that an electronic fund transfer has been made without your permission using information from your check. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit). If you tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your card or code, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone used your card or code without your permission. If you do NOT tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your card or code, and we can prove that we could have stopped someone from using your card or code without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.00. Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, including those made by card code or other means, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money lost after the sixty (60) days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods. If you believe that your card or code has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, call (406) 228-8231, or write us at FIRST COMMUNITY BANK.PO BOX 191, GLASGOW, MT 59230. You should also call the number or write this address if you believe a transfer has been made using the information from your check without your permission.

Illegal Transactions. You may not use your ATM, POS, or Debit Card, or other access device for any illegal or unlawful transaction, and we may decline to authorize any transaction that we believe poses an undue risk of illegality or unlawfulness. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may collect on any debt arising out of any illegal or unlawful transaction.

Business Days. For purposes of these electronic funds transfer disclosures, our business days are Monday through Friday. Holidays are not included.

Documentation.

Periodic Statement. You will get a monthly account statement from us, unless there are no transactions in a particular month. In any case you will get a statement quarterly. You will get a quarterly statement from us on your savings account if this is the only account you maintain and the only possible electronic transfer to or from the account is a preauthorized deposit. A description of the transactions performed at an ATM terminal will be provided on any periodic statement of account furnished to you.

Terminal Receipt. You can get a receipt at the time you make a transfer to or from your account using an ATM or a POS terminal. However, receipts for transactions of $15.00 or less may not always be available. The receipt shall be admissible as evidence in any legal proceeding and constitutes prima facie proof of the legal transaction which it records.

Record Keeping. It is important that you retain records relating to your account as well as your transactions at any ATM terminal. In order to have a current understanding of your account as well as detect errors, it is important that you retain your terminal receipts until such time that you have reconciled your account statement provided by us with your account records.

Direct Deposits. If you have arranged to have direct deposits made to your account at least once every sixty (60) days from the same person or company, you can call us at (800) 645-5739 to find out whether or not the deposit has been made.

Our Liability for Failure to Make Transfers. If we do not complete a transfer to or from your account on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will NOT be liable for instance:

If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer.

If the money in your account is subject to legal process or other claim restricting such transfer.

If the transfer would go over the credit limit on your overdraft line.

If the ATM where you are making the transfer does not have enough cash.

If the terminal or system was not working properly and you knew about the breakdown when you started the transfer.

If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood) prevent the transaction, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken.

There may be other exceptions stated in our agreement with you.

In Case of Errors or Questions About Your Electronic Transfers. Telephone us at (406) 228-8231, or write us at FIRST COMMUNITY BANK. PO BOX 191, GLASGOW, MT 59230 as soon as you can, if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transfer listed on the statement or receipt. You may also contact us on the web: fcbg@fcbank.net We must hear from you no later than sixty (60) days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.

Tell us your name and account number (if any).

Describe the error or the transfer you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you
need more information.

Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error.

If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) business days.

We will determine whether an error occurred within ten (10) days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to forty five (45) days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within ten (10) days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within ten (10) business days, we may not credit your account.

If a notice of error involves an electronic fund transfer that occurred within thirty (30) days after the first deposit to the account was made, the error involves a new account. For errors involving new accounts, point of sale debit card transactions, or foreign-initiated transactions, we may take up to ninety (90) days to investigate your complaint or question. For new accounts, we may take up to twenty (20) days to credit your account for the amount you think is in error.

We will tell you the results within three (3) business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.

If a notice of error involves unauthorized use of your point of sale debit card with the VISA logo when it is used as a VISA point of sale debit card, we will provide provisional credit within five (5) business days after you notify us instead of within ten (10) or twenty (20) days. We may withhold providing this accelerated provisional credit, to the extent allowed under applicable law, if the circumstances or account history warrants the delay.

Confidentiality. We will disclose information to third parties about your account or the transfers you make:

To complete transfers as necessary;

To verify the existence and condition of your account upon the request of a third party, such as a credit bureau or merchant; or

To comply with government agency or court orders; or

If you give us your written permission.

Personal Identification Number (PIN). The ATM PIN, POS PIN or Audio Response PIN issued to you is for your security purposes. The numbers are confidential and should not be disclosed to third parties or recorded on the card. You are responsible for safekeeping your PIN(s). You agree not to disclose or otherwise make your ATM PIN, POS PIN or Audio Response PIN available to anyone not authorized to sign on your accounts.

Notices. All notices from us will be effective when we have mailed them or delivered them to your last known address on our records. Notices from you will be effective when received by us at the telephone number or the address specified in this Agreement. We reserve the right to change the terms and conditions upon which this service is offered. We will mail notice to you at least twenty one (21) days before the effective date of any change, as required by law. Use of this service is subject to existing regulations governing your account and any future changes to those regulations.

Enforcement. In the event either party brings a legal action to enforce this Agreement or collect amounts owing as a result of any Account transaction, the prevailing party shall be entitled to reasonable attorneys' fees and costs, including fees on any appeal, subject to any limits under applicable law.

Termination of ATM, POS and Audio Response Services. You agree that we may terminate this Agreement and your use of the ATM Card, POS or Audio Response services, if:

You or any authorized user of your ATM PIN, POS card or PIN or Audio Response PIN breach this or any other agreement with us;

We have reason to believe that there has been an unauthorized use of your ATM PIN, POS card or PIN or Audio Response PIN;

We notify you or any other party to your account that we have cancelled or will cancel this Agreement. You or any other party to your
account can terminate this Agreement by notifying us in writing.

Termination of service will be effective the first business day following receipt of your written notice. Termination of this Agreement will not affect the rights and responsibilities of the parties under this Agreement for transactions initiated before termination.

Preauthorized Electronic Fund Transfers.

Stop Payment Rights. If you have told us in advance to make regular electronic fund transfers out of your account(s), you can stop any of these payments. Here's how: Call us or write to us at the telephone number or address set forth above, in time for us to receive your request three (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 fourteen (14) days after you call. We will charge you $ 25.00 for each stop payment order you give.

Notice of Varying Amounts. If these regular payments may vary in amount, the person you are going to pay will tell you, ten (10) days before each payment, when it will be made and how much it will be. 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 Transfers. If you order us to stop one of these payments three (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.

Other Provisions. There may be a delay between the time a deposit is made and when it will be available for withdrawal. You should review our Funds Availability Policy to determine the availability of the funds deposited at ATMs. We reserve the right to refuse any transaction which would draw upon insufficient funds, exceed a credit limit, lower an account below a required balance, or otherwise require us to increase our required reserve on the account.

FOREIGN TRANSACTION CURRENCY EXCHANGE RATE. The exchange rate for transactions in a foreign currency will be a rate selected by VISA from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which rate may vary from the rate VISA itself receives, or the government mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date plus up to a 1 % international transaction fee.
