Now that you understand how easy it is to use your AnovaFunds Account, here are the detailed terms and conditions that govern your AnovaFunds Account ("Terms"). Please understand that when you submit an application, open an account or use our services, you agree to be bound by these Terms.

I. Definitions

Anova Financial Corporation - is not a bank, we are a North Carolina financial services corporation having its principal place of business at 112 West Eden Street (PO Box 666), Edenton, North Carolina 27932. Depositors utilize ANOVA's insured deposit services by appointing ANOVA as their "Agent" on behalf of the Depositor to direct the placement of certain funds pursuant to the Agency Agreement (see Part V. of these Terms and Conditions of Use) duly adopted by the Depositor or an authorized representative of the Depositor. ANOVA agrees to act as Depositor's Agent in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.

Linked Account - this is your existing Personal or Business Checking or Savings Bank Account which has a limit of up to $250,000 of FDIC or NCUSIF Insurance coverage. With our AnovaFunds program you don't change banks; you link your Bank Operating Account - "Linked Account" to your AnovaFunds Account to earn a higher interest rate for excess cash deposits above $250,000. Once the link has been established you can instruct ANOVA to transfer funds from your account via ACH to our network of participating banks or withdraw funds as you need them back to your Bank Operating Account. Your ANOVA account allows you to exclude banks that you are already doing business with from receiving funds and provides a holding report so you can verify which banks your funds have been deposited into through the AnovaFunds program. ANOVA currently charges no fees associated with these deposits or withdrawals.

AnovaFunds Account - this is either a Money Market Deposit Account (MMDA), Demand Deposit Account (DDA), a Negotiated Order of Withdrawal Account (NOW), a Savings Account (SA), a Certificate of Deposit (CD or US Government Guaranteed Money Market Fund ("MMF") (collectively "AnovaFunds" account) which stretches your FDIC or NCUSIF insurance coverage above the current standard maximum deposit insurance amount (SMDIA) of $250,000 up to $20,000,000 through our AnovaFunds Bank Network. We aggregate your deposit with other deposit sources to enable you to earn higher interest through our FDIC/NCUSIF-Insured, LiquidDeposit Account. You access and manage one account while earning a higher yield due to the aggregated wholesale deposit value we bring through our network of participating banks. NOTE - On July 21, 2010, President Barack Obama signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act into law, which, in part, permanently raised the current standard maximum deposit insurance amount (SMDIA) to $250,000. The FDIC or NCUSIF insurance coverage limit applies per depositor, per insured depository institution for each account ownership category.

AnovaFunds Service - is an electronic funds investment and transfer service provided by ANOVA that provides our customers an alternative deposit solution with cash-like liquidity, superior rates and the security of FDIC and NCUSIF insurance on 100% of the principal and interest for cash deposits over $250,000. With access to the Internet, your account number and your PASSWORD, you may perform the following transactions at any time:

- Review Balance Statements for your account

- Schedule Transfers from your Linked Account to your AnovaFunds Account

- Obtain rate quotations and other information on your accounts

- Review your account history

Anova Banking Network (ABN) - ANOVA maintains a network of participating banks and credit unions that represent the highest quality standards, and traditions in banking. ANOVA uses a nationally recognized bank rating service as well as a review of key capital ratios in order to insure that the participating depositories have sufficient financial strength to accept deposits through the ANOVA program. Through the qualifying process the depositories' capital position and supervisory agreements are reviewed to highlight character and safety standards. Next, an ongoing monitoring, or early detection system, is implemented to ensure ongoing standards are met and/or exceeded regularly.

Capital ratios are available quarterly as reported by banks and credit unions and verified through supervisory agencies. ANOVA's participating federally insured depositories institutions ("FIDI") must fall into one of the two highest classifications to qualify as an ANOVA participating bank or credit union. If the FIDI is classified as a "Well Capitalized" bank or credit union then agreements will be executed upon review completion. If the FIDI is classified as an "Adequately Capitalized" bank or credit union then a waiver must be obtained from the FDIC or NCUA allowing the bank or credit union to accept deposits from ANOVA. ANOVA will only accept to place deposits in Adequately Capitalized FIDIs in very exceptional cases even if they have a waiver.

Custodial & Fiduciary Services - All transactions will be facilitated in accordance with ANOVA's US Bank National Association ("Bank") Master Services Agreement and Treasury Management Services ("Agreements") through US Bank's SinglePoint transaction platform. ANOVA's US Bank Agreements for Services with Custodian insures the highest level of security and fiduciary responsibility to our customers and participating banks. Depositor funds will be transferred by ACH or wire from Depositors' Linked Account to the Custodial Account titled "Anova Financial Corporation as agent for others" into accounts directed by ANOVA indicating the amount of the funds to be invested and the rate agreed to by ANOVA and Depositor.  ANOVA will instruct Custodian, consistent with this Agreement, to deposit the funds into federally insured accounts ("Accounts") titled "Anova Financial Corporation as agent for others" maintained by depository institutions insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") including a MMF as defined in this agreement, and insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF).

Fees - There are no monthly or per transaction fees for accessing your AnovaFunds Account. However, fees, described in the applicable product or account disclosure statement may apply to services ordered online and to transfers from your existing Personal or Business Checking or Savings Account (Linked Account). You may also incur fees for the telephone and Internet services you use to access the service.

Money Market Fund - A Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") registered US Government Money Market Fund ("MMF") that invests exclusively in securities issued or guaranteed by the US Government including bank deposits insured by the FDIC.

That means that at any time and without notice to you, we can use all or any part of the money from your accounts to pay any amounts you owe us from time to time.

IV. Truth in savings disclosures

The Truth in Savings Act (also known by the acronym TISA) is a United States federal law that was passed on December 19, 1991. It was part of the larger Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991 and is implemented by Regulation DD. It established uniformity in the disclosure of terms and conditions regarding interest and fees when giving out information on or opening a new savings account. On passing this law, the US Congress noted that it would help promote economic stability, competition between depository institutions, and allow the consumer to make informed decisions.

The Truth in Savings Act requires the clear and uniform disclosure of rates of interest (annual percentage yield or APY) and the fees that are associated with the account so that the consumer is able to make a meaningful comparison between potential accounts. For example, a customer opening an ANOVA money market deposit account (MMDA) must be provided with information about ladder rates (smaller interest rates with smaller deposits) for all of the funds. ANOVA provides such rates in a format of both annual percentage yield (APY) and annual percentage rate (APR) to clearly post and identify interest earned on your account.

The Act is only applicable to deposit accounts that are held by a "natural person" for personal, household, or family use. Accounts owned by businesses or organizations such as churches and neighborhood associations are not subject to these rules.

1. Initial Deposit Requirement - ANOVA's minimum deposit for opening an AnovaFunds Account online is $100,000. However, ANOVA reserves the right to modify this minimum under certain circumstances. Please contact an ANOVA Customer Service Representative at 1-888-266-8293 if you would like to learn more regarding these certain circumstances. 

2. Rate Information - The Interest Rate (APR) and Interest Yield (APY) on your account depends on the account balance. Your Interest Rate (APR) and Interest Yield (APY) will change monthly and you will be notified two (2) business days prior to the new month of the applicable rates, yields, and minimum balances that apply to your accounts. ANOVA posts deposit yields and rates monthly and are accessible on the ANOVA website (www.anovafinancial.com) as well as within your secure account statement posted electronically as noted above.

3. Compounding and Crediting - Interest on your account will be accrued daily and credited monthly.

4. Balance Computation Method - Interest shall be calculated on each Account by taking the average balance during each calendar month, multiplying the ratio of actual days in the given month divided by 365 days, times the agreed upon interest rate. A month shall be defined as the first day following the last banking business day of the prior calendar month, as defined by the Federal Reserve, through the last banking business day of the current month.

5. Effect of Closing an Account - If you close your account before interest is credited, you will receive the accrued interest earned through the date of closing minus any amounts you owe us as it relates to "Liens or Set-offs" as outlined above in item 11.


V. Agency Agreement

The Depositor hereby agrees to appoint Anova Financial Corporation, a North Carolina business corporation having its principal place of business at PO Box 666 (112 West Eden Street), Edenton, North Carolina 27932 ("ANOVA") as its Agent ("Agent") to direct the placement of certain funds pursuant to resolutions ("Resolutions") duly adopted by the Depositor or its Board of Directors. ANOVA agrees to act as Depositor's Agent in connection with the Resolutions in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. In carrying out duties as Agent, Depositor agrees to act in accordance with the following instructions:

1. On or after the effective date of this Agreement, Depositor will initiate a transaction and ANOVA will subsequently initiate an ACH of funds to our Custodial Bank as contracted by ANOVA ("Custodian") into accounts directed by ANOVA and will simultaneously send instructions to ANOVA executed by the account owner or an appropriate officer of this Depositor (the "Instructions") indicating the amount of the funds to be invested and the rate agreed to by ANOVA and Depositor and confirmed in the Instructions.

2. With respect to funds that have been properly transferred via ACH, ANOVA will instruct Custodian, consistent with this Agreement, to deposit the funds into federally insured accounts ("Accounts") maintained by depository institutions insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") including a MMF as defined in this agreement, or insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF). ANOVA will determine in accordance with our customary standards when acting as agent that any such Instructions are in proper form. Not less than monthly, ANOVA will forward to Depositor all interest accrued on such Accounts at the rate agreed upon in the Instructions. Interest shall be calculated on each Account by taking the average balance during each calendar month, multiplying the ratio of actual days in the given month divided by 365 days, times the agreed upon interest rate. A month shall be defined as the first day following the last banking business day of the prior calendar month, as defined by the Federal Reserve, through the last banking business day of the current month. Instructions received by ANOVA prior to 12:30 P.M. Eastern time requesting withdrawal of funds from the Accounts will be processed by ANOVA the same day and funds will be transferred via ACH to Depositor prior to 5 P.M. Eastern time. Requests received after 12:30 P.M. Eastern Standard Time will be processed and transferred via ACH the next business day.

3. Instructions for deposit or withdrawal of funds will be considered properly presented to ANOVA only when:

(a) executed by the account owner or appropriate officer of the Deposit Account; and

(b) the adequacy of the items and documents relating to such Instructions and ACH transfers have been favorably passed upon as above provided.

In addition to ANOVA's duties as Agent, ANOVA is the recordkeeping agent for the Accounts. ACH transfers to and from the Accounts will be posted to the records thereof that ANOVA maintains. Should any issue arise regarding federal income tax reporting or withholding, ANOVA will take such action as Depositor instructs in writing.

In order to allow ANOVA to fulfill our record-keeping responsibility for the Accounts, Depositor will provide ANOVA all necessary information with respect to the identity of the owner of each account maintained by ANOVA and the amount which is being transferred for each such owner to the Custodian for deposit in Accounts, and such other information as shall be reasonably necessary for ANOVA's activities under this Agreement (the "Sub-Account Records"). Depositor authorizes ANOVA, in our capacity as agent, to disclose the Sub-Account Records, if reasonably necessary in connection with the deposit of funds in the Account or the maintenance of FDIC insurance, to the Custodian or the depository banks maintaining the Accounts. Depositor acknowledges that the Custodian has no role in assuring the maintenance of federal insurance and keeps no cumulative individual Depositor records. ANOVA agrees that none of the information provided to ANOVA with respect to the owners of the accounts shall be made available to any third party other than the depository institutions holding such accounts and then only if required by applicable regulatory requirements governing the depository institution. And, if any of such information is so required to be provided, then ANOVA further agrees that these depository institutions shall be prohibited from utilizing such information for any purpose other than the maintenance and servicing of the accounts, which prohibition shall include, but not be limited to, any effort to solicit business from the owners of the accounts. In return, Depositor agrees not to seek to do business with such depository institutions until at least one year after Depositor has ceased doing business with ANOVA and then only after written notice to ANOVA of our intention to contact any such depository institution.

4. ANOVA will forward to Depositor, as and when requested by Depositor, reports of the then current funds represented by the Accounts (including interest at the agreed upon rate) and the then current number of Accounts maintained. In addition, ANOVA will also give, and cooperate in making available to, us such other information as Depositor may reasonably request. Such cooperation shall include, without limitation, the granting by ANOVA to representatives of the Depositor, access to those persons on the ANOVA staff who are responsible for monitoring ACH transfers to and from the Accounts.

5. At no time will ANOVA ever retain custody or physical possession of the assets of the Accounts. All ACH transfers received by the Custodian shall be sent only to the Accounts and all ACH transfers from the Accounts shall be forwarded only to the Custodian. Custodian is authorized to forward to ANOVA and deduct from any transfers such amounts as are due to you under the terms of this Agreement. Depositor acknowledges that ANOVA, in our role as Agent for the Depositor, are not providing investment advice, are not acting as a fiduciary as defined in ERISA, and are not registered as an investment advisor under the Investment Advisors Act of 1940.

6. As soon as practicable after the termination of ANOVA's appointment as Agent hereunder, ANOVA will deliver to the Depositor:

(i) all funds deposited into Accounts and the interest thereon at the rate specified in the Instructions;

(ii) an accounting prepared by ANOVA indicating the total number of Accounts opened pursuant to this Agreement and any other information reasonably requested by you as the Depositor.

7. Your appointment as Agent will terminate upon thirty (30) days notice from Depositor. Upon the termination of ANOVA's appointment as Agent, ANOVA will be relieved of any further responsibility hereunder, except that ANOVA shall remain obligated to perform the duties set forth in Paragraph 2 and to forward promptly to Depositor, any funds due Depositor in the Accounts as provided in Paragraph 7.

8. As Agent ANOVA:

(a) will have no duties or obligations other than those specifically set forth herein, or as may subsequently be agreed to by ANOVA in writing;

(b) will not be obligated to take any legal action hereunder which might in your reasonable judgment involve any expense or liability, unless you have been furnished with reasonable indemnity by Depositor;

(c) may rely on and shall be protected in acting on any certificate, instrument, opinion, notice, letter, telegram or other document, or any security, delivered to ANOVA and in good faith believed by ANOVA to be genuine and to have been authorized by the proper party or parties;

(d) may rely on and shall be protected in acting on the written or verbal instructions from the account owner or any officer of the Depositor with respect to any matter relating to ANOVA's actions specifically covered by this Agreement; and

9. We, as the Depositor, represent and warrant to ANOVA, as our Agent:

(a) that the beneficial owners of the Accounts are eligible to have their funds deposited into Money Market Deposit Accounts, Demand Deposit Accounts, Negotiated Order of Withdrawal Accounts, Savings Accounts, Certificates of Deposits or a MMF as defined in this agreement

(b) that we acknowledge that the rules and regulations of the FDIC and NCUSIF require that deposit account records must indicate ownership in a clear and unambiguous manner, and, with respect to a claim for insurance coverage based on a fiduciary relationship, that the fiduciary relationship must be expressly disclosed in the deposit account records of the insured depository institution.

(c) that we acknowledge that the rules and regulations of the FDIC and NCUSIF require that the interests of the parties in the Accounts must be ascertainable either from the deposit account records of the insured depository institution or from records maintained, in good faith and in the regular course of business, by the depositor or by some entity that has undertaken to maintain such records for the depositor.

(d) that we acknowledge that insurance of accounts by the FDIC and NCUSIF is a fact-based analysis under the rules and regulations of the FDIC and NCUSIF, and that in certain circumstances, for example, where an owner whose funds are deposited in an Account has another account at that depository institution, with a total balance in both accounts of over $250,000, all or a portion of the funds in the Accounts may not be insured by the FDIC or NCUSIF.

(e) that you, as our Agent, represent and warrant that the Accounts will be insured in full by the FDIC or NCUSIF as long as as per the AnovaFunds account notifications the Depositor regularly updates all depository relationships where Depositor has funds on deposit. Agent makes no such representations or warranty if the Depositor neglects to maintain all of the Depositors depository relationships as per the AnovaFunds account notifications such that Agent is not made aware of a deposit relationship and places funds on deposit at banks where the Depositor has funds on deposit.

10. In the event any question or dispute arises with respect to the proper interpretation of this Agreement or ANOVA's duties hereunder, ANOVA shall not be required to act and shall not be held liable for refusal to act, until the question or dispute has been judicially settled (and, if appropriate, ANOVA may file a suit in inter pleader for such purpose) rendered by a court of competent jurisdiction, binding on all parties interested in the matter, or settled by a written document in form and substance satisfactory to ANOVA in your reasonable judgment and executed by us as the Depositor.

11. Each of us hereby covenants and agrees to reimburse, indemnify and hold the other harmless against any cost, expenses (including reasonable expenses of legal counsel), losses or damages which, in the absence of the indemnified party's failure to perform its obligations hereunder, may be paid, incurred or suffered by one of us or to which one of us may become subject by reason of or as a result of the administration of the other party's duties hereunder or by reason of or as a result of the other party's compliance with the instructions set forth herein, or as a result of defending itself against any claim or liability resulting from the other party's actions pursuant hereto. In no case shall a party be liable under this indemnity with respect to any claim against the other party unless the other party shall be notified by the party seeking indemnity, in writing or by telephone promptly confirmed in writing, of the written assertion of a claim or shall have been served with the summons or other legal process giving information as to the nature and basis of the claim; provided, however, the failure of the indemnified party to give prompt notice shall not release the indemnified party from any of its obligations under this paragraph 11 except and only to the extent that such failure to give prompt notice shall have a material adverse effect on the indemnified party's ability to defend such claim. The indemnifying party shall be entitled to participate at its expense in the defense, and if it so elects at any time after receipt of such notice from the party seeking indemnity, the indemnifying party shall assume the defense of any suit brought to enforce any such claim, in which event the party seeking indemnity shall provide the indemnifying party with all documents and assistance reasonably necessary in assuming such defense. In the event that the indemnifying party assumes the defense of any such suit, the indemnifying party shall not be liable for the fees and expenses of any additional counsel thereafter retained by the party seeking indemnity. The party seeking indemnity shall not enter into a settlement or other compromise with respect to any indemnified cost, expense, loss, damage or liability without the indemnifying party's prior written consent. If the indemnified party shall obtain a repayment of any costs, expense, loss damage or liability paid by the indemnifying party pursuant hereto, the indemnified party shall promptly pay to the indemnifying party the amount of such repayment, together with the amount of any interest received by the indemnified party on account of such repayment.

12. This Agreement shall be construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of North Carolina or as Federal Law may provide, and the obligations created hereby shall be binding upon ANOVA as the Agent and us as the Depositor, and the successors and permitted assigns of the parties hereto. ANOVA may not assign any of your rights or obligations hereunder.

13. This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original, but all of which shall constitute one and the same agreement.

14. Except in those instances where telephonic notice is expressly permitted, all notices or other communications required or permitted hereunder shall be delivered consistent with the "Disclosure Statement Regarding Electronic Delivery of Documents" - either electronically or by paper copy delivered by U.S. mail or in each case to such other address or fax number as may be furnished from time to time by ANOVA or Depositor. All notices and communications hereunder sent by mail shall be effective 72 hours after deposit in the United States mail, certified, postage prepaid, addressed as aforesaid, and all other notices and communications hereunder shall be effective upon receipt; provided, however, that notice of change of address shall be effective only upon receipt.
