Credit and Debit Authorization for Services
You acknowledge that the electronic authorization contained in this section represents your written authorization for ACH debit transactions as provided in this section and will remain in full force and effect until you notify Cambio that you wish to revoke this debit authorization by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
You must notify us that you are exercising your right to stop a debit or revoke your authorization for automatic debits at least three (3) banking days before the next scheduled debit date. We assume no responsibility for our failure to do so.
If Cambio is unable to collect your Subscription Fee via ACH payment from your Cambio™ Card or Bank Account, you authorize Cambio and/or its agents to suspend your account. You authorize Cambio and/or its agents to initiate the recurring monthly debit from your Bank Account or Cambio™ Card. Cambio reserves the right to cease offering you Services if you revoke your electronic authorization. Other Fees for Specially Requested Services and Irregular Occurrences Fees that SCU may charge, in addition to the applicable Subscription Fee charged by Cambio, for specially requested services or irregular occurrences can be found in Services Credit Union CambioTM Visa® Prepaid Card Cardholder Agreement.
We try to avoid you incurring Overdraft Fees but, despite our efforts, your bank may charge you an Overdraft Fee for actions related to your Cambio™ Membership including but not limited to Cambio initiating a withdrawal from your Bank Account for repayment of an Cambio™ Instant Cash Advance or monthly subscription fee. Such fees are retained by your bank; we do not receive any portion of such fees.
You agree to cooperate with us in correcting errors that may occur as part of the Services. If you receive funds or a credit in an amount greater than what you are entitled to receive under the Services and these Terms, then you agree to immediately return and pay such excess amount to us. You agree that we and our agents may reverse, withdraw or cancel any debit, transaction or item that provided you with funds in error. You agree that an error occurred if we or our agents send any funds to you after we receive evidence indicating that you defrauded us or provided us or our agents with false information. You agree that we may initiate a new ACH debit to your Bank Account or Cambio™ Card, as applicable, in an amount equal to such overpayment plus the amount of expenses we incurred in recovering such overpayment, including the amount of your obligations, if any, under the “Indemnity” provision below. This paragraph shall survive termination, discontinuation, or cancellation of the Services or your Account for any reason.
Cambio™ Instant Cash Advance
Cambio may offers qualified members the ability to access “Cambio™ Instant Cash Advance,” a service that provides a cash advance included in the membership fee (each such advance, an “Advance”).
To be eligible for Advance, you must meet certain minimum qualifications, which are identified when you request access to Advance, and which are also available in the support section of the App. When you request access to use Advance, you give Cambio permission to review your Bank Account and CAMBIO™ Reloadable PREPAID CARD transactions to ensure you meet these minimum requirements and any other requirements Cambio may deem necessary to qualify for Advance.
When you use Advance, you also give Cambio permission to initiate a withdrawal from your Bank Account or Cambio™ Card, as applicable, for the amount of the Advance when we detect that you have received your next paycheck. Cambio may initiate the withdrawal via ACH. If you have insufficient funds to repay Cambio, you agree that Cambio may, in its sole discretion, withdraw small amounts from your Bank Account or Cambio™ Card until the balance is repaid in full, or withdraw the full amount of the Cambio Advance when sufficient funds are in your Bank Account or Cambio™ Card.
We offer Advances on a nonrecourse basis. Consequently, we warrant to you that we have no contractual or legal claim against you for an Advance, and we will not engage in debt collection activities, place the amount advanced with or sell to a third party, or make any reports to credit reporting agencies regarding your Advance. However, we reserve the right to deny you access to Cambio™ Instant Cash Advance if you (i) do not meet the qualification requirements, (ii) request an excessive number of Advances in succession, or (iii) do not repay the full balance of an Advance.
While Cambio does not charge Overdraft Fees, your Bank Account may. We are not responsible for ensuring your Bank Account has sufficient funds for your needs, purposes, or transactions and we cannot guarantee that repayment of an Advance will not cause or trigger Overdraft Fees in your Bank Account.
Discretion to Waive or Customize Fees
The Subscription Fee is not negotiable. Cambio reserves the right to waive or customize the Subscription Fee or any part of the Subscription Fee at any time, for any period, for any Cambio member at its sole and absolute discretion.
Initiatives with Waived Fees
Cambio may, from time to time, elect to launch promotions or other initiatives whereby Subscription Fees may be waived, in whole or in part, for certain categories of members (such as, by way of example, students, beta testers, members below a certain age and/or military veterans). Any such initiative (i) may be expanded, narrowed, suspended, cancelled, or modified at any time by Cambio in its sole discretion, and (ii) will be subject to rules, guidelines and/or terms and conditions, if any, that Cambio determines in its sole discretion to apply in connection therewith (which rules, guidelines and/or terms may be included in website landing pages, on the Website generally and/or elsewhere). To the extent any such program or initiative is cancelled or terminated, Cambio will, after giving impacted clients notice, begin charging clients the then current Subscription Fees prospectively. You agree and acknowledge that Cambio shall have sole discretion in determining whether or not any existing member or potential member meets the requirements to participate in and/or benefit from any such program or initiative, and Cambio shall not be liable to you or any other party in connection with any such decision and/or in connection with the administration of any such program or initiative generally.

In no case shall Cambio, our directors, officers, employees, affiliates, agents, contractors, interns, suppliers, service providers or licensors be liable, and disclaim any liability, for any claim, loss or damage, direct or indirect, including, without limitation, compensatory, consequential, incidental, indirect, special, exemplary or punitive damages of any kind whatsoever in connection with, as a result of, or arising (I) out of the use of or inability to use the Applications, Website, Services and/or any Content; (ii) from any interruption in the availability of the Application, Website, Services and/or Content; (iii) from any loss of data and/or from any equipment failure; (iv) out of the procurement of substitute goods or services resulting from any problems with the goods, content and/or services purchased or obtained from the Application or Website, or transactions entered into, through or from the Application or Website; (v) from unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data; (vi) from statements or conduct of any third party in the Application or Website; (vii) from any delay or failure of the Application, Website and/or Services arising out of causes beyond Cambio’s control; (viii) out of the use of, reference to, or reliance on, the Content and/or Services; (ix) out of any third party materials, information, products and services contained on, or accessed through, the Application or Website (x) out of any content, materials, accuracy of information, and/or quality of the products, services or materials provided by or advertised on Third-Party Sites; or (xi) out of any other matter relating to the Application, Website, Services, or Content.

In this section, we and you shall also be referred to herein as each a “Party” or together the “Parties.” The Parties will attempt in good faith to resolve through negotiation any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement. Either Party may initiate negotiations by providing written notice in letter form to the other Party, setting forth the subject of the dispute and the relief requested. The recipient of such notice will respond in writing within five days with a statement of its position on and recommended solution to the dispute. If the dispute is not resolved by this exchange of correspondence, then representatives of each Party with full settlement authority will meet at a mutually agreeable time and place within ten days of the date of the initial notice in order to exchange relevant information and perspectives, and to attempt to resolve the dispute. If the dispute is not resolved by these negotiations, the matter will be submitted to JAMS, or its successor, for mediation.
Except as provided herein, no arbitration or civil action with respect to any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement may be commenced until the matter has been submitted to JAMS, or its successor, for mediation. Either Party may commence mediation by providing to JAMS and the other Party a written request for mediation, setting forth the subject of the dispute and the relief requested. The Parties will cooperate with JAMS and with one another in selecting a mediator from JAMS’ panel of neutrals, and in scheduling the mediation proceedings. The Parties covenant that they will participate in the mediation in good faith, and that they will share equally in its costs. All offers, promises, conduct and statements, whether oral or written, made in the course of the mediation by any of the Parties, their agents, employees, experts and attorneys, and by the mediator and any JAMS employees, are confidential, privileged and inadmissible for any purpose, including impeachment, in any litigation or other proceeding involving the Parties, provided that evidence that is otherwise admissible or discoverable shall not be rendered inadmissible or non-discoverable as a result of its use in the mediation. Either Party may seek equitable relief prior to the mediation to preserve the status quo pending the completion of that process. Except for such an action to obtain equitable relief, neither Party may commence arbitration or a civil action with respect to the matters submitted to mediation until after the completion of the initial mediation session, or 45 days after the date of filing the written request for mediation, whichever occurs first. Mediation may continue after the commencement of arbitration or a civil action if the Parties so desire. The provisions of this sub-section may be enforced by any court of competent jurisdiction, and the Party seeking enforcement shall be entitled to an award of all costs, fees, and expenses, including attorney’s fees, to be paid by the Party against whom enforcement is ordered.
If the matter is not resolved under the processes described above, the Parties hereby agree to settle by arbitration dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement. Such arbitration will be conducted by and according to the arbitration rules then in effect of the American Arbitration Association. An arbitration proceeding may be initiated by serving or mailing a written notice.
The Parties acknowledge and agree:
- (i) Arbitration is final and binding on the Parties;
- (ii) The Parties are waiving their right to seek remedies in court, including the right to a jury trial;
- (iii) Pre-arbitration discovery is generally more limited than and different from court proceedings;
- (iv) The arbitrators’ award is not required to include factual findings or legal reasoning and any Party’s right to appeal or to seek modification of rulings by the arbitrators is strictly limited; and
- (v) The panel of arbitrators will typically include a minority of arbitrators who were or are affiliated with the financial services industry.
Any award the arbitrator makes will be final, and judgment on it may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This arbitration agreement shall be enforced and interpreted exclusively in accordance with applicable federal law, including the Federal Arbitration Act. Arbitration shall be conducted in Chicago, Illinois at a location determined by the American Arbitration Association. Any costs, fees or taxes involved in enforcing the award shall be assessed fully against and paid by the Party resisting enforcement of said award.
