We request you to retain the original check for at least thirty (30) days after you submit the check image to us.

We can delay the availability of your check if your deposit account was opened 30 days or less from the date you remotely deposited your check. In such cases, we will send you an electronic notice informing if your ability to withdraw funds is delayed for any reason and when your funds may be available. Generally, funds will be available no later than ten (10) business days after the deposit is accepted for processing.

- 26.1. These Terms shall be construed and governed by the laws of the State of California without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of California or any other jurisdiction). Access or use of the Website and/or the GMG Services is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these terms and conditions.
- 26.2. BINDING ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTION WAIVER
ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY OF WHATEVER NATURE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR THE GMG SERVICES SHALL BE RESOLVED BY FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PROCESS DESCRIBED IN THIS SECTION 26.
Any claim, dispute, or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the GMG Services, including, without limitation, federal and state statutory claims, common law claims, and those based in contract, tort, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory (“Claim”), shall be resolved through binding arbitration, on an individual basis. Subject to applicable jurisdictional requirements, you may elect to pursue your claim in your local small claims court rather than through arbitration so long as your matter remains in small claims court and proceeds only on an individual (non-class and non-representative) basis. Arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s rules for arbitration of consumer-related disputes, which are accessible at https://www.adr.org/sites/default/files/Consumer%20Rules.pdf.
CLASS ACTION WAIVER: TO THE EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN A PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, COLLECTIVE ACTION, OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING (COLLECTIVELY “CLASS ACTION WAIVER”). THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS OR ENGAGE IN ANY CLASS ARBITRATION. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT, BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, YOU AND GMG ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY AND THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
- 26.3. Before serving a demand for arbitration for a Claim, you and GMG agree to first notify each other of the Claim. You agree to notify GMG of the Claim by email to [email protected], and GMG agrees to provide to you a notice at your email address on file (in each case, a “Notice”). You and GMG then will seek informal voluntary resolution of the Claim. Any Notice must include pertinent account information, a brief description of the Claim, and contact information, so that you or GMG, as applicable, may evaluate the Claim and attempt to informally resolve the Claim. Both you and GMG will have 60 days from the date of the receipt of the Notice to informally resolve the other party’s Claim, which, if successful, will avoid the need for further action.

The TOS, including, but not limited to, the disclaimers, limitation of liability, and arbitration provisions in the TOS, is hereby incorporated by reference into these Program Terms and, in addition to these Program Terms, governs your enrollment and participation in the Program. Any capitalized term used but not defined in these Program Terms has the meaning ascribed to that term in the TOS.
2. RULE 255 DISCLOSURE
Good Money (“Good Money”) anticipates offering convertible debt securities to qualified individuals under Tier 2 of Regulation A of the Securities Act of 1933 (such offering, a “Good Shares Offering” and the convertible debt securities of Good Money that may be offered under the Good Shares Offering, the “Good Shares”). To date, no filing of an offering statement pursuant to Regulation A of the Securities Act of 1933 with respect to such Good Shares (an “Offering Statement”) has been made with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Accordingly: – No money or other consideration for the Good Shares is being solicited and, if any money or other consideration is sent to Good Money for Good Shares, such money or other consideration will not be accepted; – No offer for the Good Shares can be accepted, and no part of the purchase price can be received, until Good Money has filed an Offering Statement with the SEC and the SEC has qualified such Offering Statement; – Any indication of interest in acquiring Good Shares may be withdrawn or revoked, without obligation or commitment of any kind, at any time before notice of acceptance by Good Money that is given after the date the Offering Statement is qualified by the SEC; and – An indication of interest in any securities involves no obligation or commitment of any kind.
3. INDICATION OF INTEREST
You acknowledge that opening a GMG Account and ongoing use of GMG Services (including engaging in the qualifying loyalty behaviors set forth in Section 4) will constitute your affirmative indication of interest in the Good Shares Offering, absent your decision to opt out of the program. You may request to opt out by providing written instructions to Good Money via email to [email protected].
4. THE PROGRAM
- 4.1. Eligibility
- To be eligible to participate in the Program, you must meet the eligibility requirements set forth in the TOS. You will be automatically enrolled in the Program when you open a GMG Account.

- Each time you perform an activity listed below while enrolled in the Program, Good Money will ascribe a dollar value to that activity (a “Loyalty Value”). The initial Loyalty Value per activity listed below is subject to modification by Good Money in its sole discretion and, once modified, will apply to future instances of such activity (subject to subsequent modifications). Good Money will then add the Loyalty Value to your GMG Account and will reserve (or “unlock”) a number of Good Shares equivalent to the Loyalty Value, which you may acquire in accordance with the procedure set forth in Section 4.3. Your Loyalty Values are subject to diminution or elimination by Good Money in its sole discretion for extended periods of inactivity with respect to your GMG Account and/or GMG Funds Account. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may access your current Loyalty Values at any time by logging into your GMG Account.

Other terms and conditions governing the Good Shares issued to you will be set forth in the Subscription Agreement. Unless and until you enter into the Subscription Agreement and receive Good Shares through the Good Shares Offering, you do not own, or have any other property rights or interest in, any Good Shares.
- 4.4 Loyalty Values – Disclaimer
- All Loyalty Values are subject to change in Good Money’s sole discretion. You do not own, or have any other property rights or interest in, any Loyalty Values. Your Loyalty Values represent only a method for valuing your loyalty, have no monetary or other value, and are not exchangeable for cash or other benefits. The Loyalty Values have no monetary value and are not a promise of current or future economic value. No exchange of value of any kind will take place until after you enter into a Subscription Agreement and receive Good Shares through the Good Shares Offering.

- Good Money may, in its sole discretion, at any time, for any reason, without prior notice to you, (a) limit or modify the Program or any of its features, (b) modify these Program Terms, or (c) terminate the Program. Good Money will post any additional Program details and updates to Program (including these Program Terms) here and then update the “Last Updated” date above. Good Money may also email you about any such changes. Your continued participation in the Program will confirm your acceptance of any such changes. Once a filing has been made with the SEC for the Good Shares Offering, updates will be made to these Program Terms and a notice may be emailed to you to provide you access to the Good Shares Offering filing materials and additional disclosures thereof. Good Money may, in its sole discretion, suspend, or terminate your participation in the Program and/or any or all of your Loyalty Values, for reasons including, but not limited to, your violation of these Program Terms, any actions that you take that are inconsistent with the intent of the Program, and prolonged periods of inactivity with respect to your usage of the GMG Services.

- 6.2 Risk of Investment
- As currently contemplated, the Good Shares will be securities. Trading in securities is inherently risky and you agree to assume complete and full responsibility for the outcomes of all trading decisions that you make with respect to the Good Shares, including, but not limited to, a complete loss of capital or investment. The Good Shares may lose value and are neither FDIC insured nor guaranteed by any bank or institution. You must be able to afford to lose your entire investment in the Good Shares. The Good Shares have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933 (and no registration is currently contemplated), in reliance on exemptions thereto. Similar reliance has been placed on apparently available exemptions from securities registration or qualification requirements under applicable state securities laws. The Good Money Parties do not represent that any governmental agency (including, but not limited to, the SEC) has reviewed the Program or has passed upon either the adequacy of the disclosure contained herein or the fairness of the terms of any transaction in Good Shares. The Good Shares will be illiquid unless and until registered with the SEC.
- 6.3 Your Decisions
- The Good Money Parties express no opinion as to the suitability of any transaction in Good Shares and you should make your own independent investigation of the suitability of any proposed transaction in Good Shares based on the facts and circumstances of your own financial situation. WE ADVISE YOU TO CONSULT LEGAL, TAX, AND/OR FINANCIAL PROFESSIONALS BEFORE TRANSACTING IN GOOD SHARES, CAREFULLY REVIEW ALL THE SPECIFIC RISK DISCLOSURES PROVIDED AS PART OF ANY TRANSACTION MATERIALS, AND REQUEST ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION RELATED THERETO.
- 6.4 Non-Exhaustive Risks
- The risks disclosed in this Section 6 are non-exhaustive and are intended to highlight certain risks associated with investing in securities that are not registered with the SEC.
