The app itself, and all the trademarks, copyright, database rights and other intellectual  property rights related to it, still belong to the Bank. 

For purposes of dating your transactions, the bank cut-off time has been implemented. All transactions  done before the designated bank cut-off will be posted to the concerned account on the same day.  Transactions after cut-off on a banking day or completed on a Saturday, Sunday or banking holiday will be  posted on the next banking day.  

You further agree that should you nominate any of your accounts as a nominated payment account, the  Bank, at its option, may automatically enroll all your other accounts which may be linked with your  nominated source accounts without the need for any further authorization or consent on the your part. 

You also agree that by enrolling in the Bank’s Mobile Banking Service, other products under your name  such as, but not limited to loans, deposits and prepaid cards, may be automatically viewable. The Bank,  however, reserves the right, at its discretion, to require your enrolment in select products, services and  facilities as it may deem fit and appropriate. 

The Bank is committed to ensuring that the app is as useful and efficient as possible. For that reason, we  reserve the right to make changes to the app or to charge for its services, at any time and for any reason. 

We will never charge you for the app or its services without making it very clear to you exactly what you’re  paying for. 

The Mobile App processes personal data that you have provided to us, to provide our Service. It is your  responsibility to keep your phone and access to the app secure. We therefore recommend that you do  not jailbreak or root your phone, which is the process of removing software restrictions and limitations  imposed by the official operating system of your device. It could make your phone vulnerable to  malware/viruses/malicious programs, compromise your phone’s security features and it could mean that  the Mobile App won’t work properly or at all. 

The app does use third party services that declare their own Terms and Conditions. (Link to Terms and Conditions of third party service providers used by the app) 

GOOGLE PLAY SERVICES 

You should be aware that there are certain things that the Bank will not take responsibility for. Certain  functions of the app will require the app to have an active internet connection. The connection can be Wi Fi, or provided by your mobile network provider, but the Bank cannot take responsibility for the app not  working at full functionality if you don’t have access to Wi-Fi, and you don’t have any of your data  allowance left. 

If you’re using the app outside of an area with Wi-Fi, you should remember that your terms of the  agreement with your mobile network provider will still apply. As a result, you may be charged by your  mobile provider for the cost of data for the duration of the connection while accessing the app, or other  third party charges. In using the app, you’re accepting responsibility for any such charges, including  roaming data charges if you use the app outside of your home territory (i.e. region or country) without  turning off data roaming. If you are not the bill payer for the device on which you’re using the app, please  be aware that we assume that you have received permission from the bill payer for using the app. 

Along the same lines, the Bank cannot always take responsibility for the way you use the app i.e. You need  to make sure that your device stays charged – if it runs out of battery and you can’t turn it on to avail the  Service, the Bank cannot accept responsibility. 

With respect to bank’s responsibility for your use of the app, when you’re using the app, it’s important to  bear in mind that although we endeavour to ensure that it is updated and correct at all times, we do rely  on third parties to provide information to us so that we can make it available to you. The Bank accepts no  liability for any loss, direct or indirect, you experience as a result of relying wholly on this functionality of  the app. 

At some point, we may wish to update the app. The app will be made available on Android & iOS – the  requirements for both systems (and for any additional systems we decide to extend the availability of the  app to) may change, and you’ll need to download the updates if you want to keep using the app. The Bank  does not promise that it will always update the app so that it is relevant to you and/or works with the  Android & iOS version that you have installed on your device. However, you promise to always accept  updates to the application when offered to you, We may also wish to stop providing the app, and may  terminate use of it at any time without giving notice of termination to you. Unless we tell you otherwise,  upon any termination, (a) the rights and licenses granted to you in these terms will end; (b) you must stop  using the app, and (if needed) delete it from your device. 

CHANGES TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS 

We may update our Terms and Conditions from time to time. Thus, you are advised to review this page  periodically for any changes. We will notify you of any changes by posting the new Terms and Conditions  on this page. 

These terms and conditions are effective as of (Mobile App Published Date)​​
