ITEM 14.    Indemnification of Directors and Officers.
 
Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law authorizes a court to award, or a corporation’s board of directors to grant, indemnity to directors and officers under certain circumstances and subject to certain limitations. The terms of Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law are sufficiently broad to permit indemnification under certain circumstances for liabilities, including reimbursement of expenses incurred, arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).
 
As permitted by the Delaware General Corporation Law, the Registrant’s restated certificate of incorporation contains provisions that eliminate the personal liability of its directors for monetary damages for any breach of fiduciary duties as a director, except for liability:
 
  •  for any breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to the Registrant or its stockholders;
 
  •  for acts or omissions not in good faith or that involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law;
 
  •  under Section 174 of the Delaware General Corporation Law (regarding unlawful dividends and stock purchases); or
 
  •  for any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit.
 
As permitted by the Delaware General Corporation Law, the Registrant’s restated bylaws provide that:
 
  •  the Registrant is required to indemnify its directors and officers to the fullest extent permitted by the Delaware General Corporation Law, subject to very limited exceptions;
 
  •  the Registrant may indemnify its other employees and agents as set forth in the Delaware General Corporation Law;
 
  •  the Registrant is required to advance expenses, as incurred, to its directors and officers in connection with a legal proceeding to the fullest extent permitted by the Delaware General Corporation Law, subject to very limited exceptions; and
 
  •  the rights conferred in the bylaws are not exclusive.
 
Prior to the completion of the offering that is the subject of this Registration Statement, the Registrant intends to enter into indemnification agreements with each of its current directors and


II-1


 

executive officers to provide these directors and executive officers additional contractual assurances regarding the scope of the indemnification set forth in the Registrant’s restated certificate of incorporation and restated bylaws and to provide additional procedural protections. At present, there is no pending litigation or proceeding involving a director, executive officer or employee of the Registrant regarding which indemnification is sought. Reference is also made to Section 9 of the Underwriting Agreement, which provides for the indemnification of executive officers, directors and controlling persons of the Registrant against certain liabilities. The indemnification provision in the Registrant’s restated certificate of incorporation, restated bylaws and the indemnification agreements entered into or to be entered into between the Registrant and each of its directors and executive officers may be sufficiently broad to permit indemnification of the Registrant’s directors and executive officers for liabilities arising under the Securities Act.
 
The Registrant has directors’ and officers’ liability insurance for securities matters.
 
In addition, Mr. Moritz is indemnified by his employer with regard to his serving on the Registrant’s board of directors.

ITEM 17.    Undertakings.
 
The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes to provide to the underwriters at the closing specified in the underwriting agreement certificates in such denominations and registered in such names as required by the underwriters to permit prompt delivery to each purchaser.
 
Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the Registrant pursuant to provisions described in Item 14 above, or otherwise, the Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the Registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
 
The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes that:
 
(1) for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, the information omitted from the form of prospectus filed as part of this registration statement in reliance upon Rule 430A and contained in a form of prospectus filed by the Registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(1) or (4) or 497(h) under the Securities Act shall be deemed to be part of this registration statement as of the time it was declared effective.
 
(2) for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each post-effective amendment that contains a form of prospectus shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

           NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the following terms and conditions, and for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the Parties hereby agree as follows:
ARTICLE I
GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE CARD PROGRAM
1.1 Description of the Prepaid Cards.
          In accordance with the terms of this Agreement, Bank will issue prepaid cards which bear the “Wal-Mart” name and certain trademark(s) of the Network Provider(s) to individuals for personal, family or household purposes (the “ Prepaid Cards ”). The Prepaid Cards also will contain the GD Marks, as mutually agreed upon by the Parties, to indicate that the Prepaid Cards may be loaded in the GD Network. Bank may modify the features and capabilities of the Prepaid Cards from time to time with the prior written approval of Retailer, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.
1.2 Temporary and Permanent Prepaid Cards.
          Subject to the terms of this Agreement, Retailer will distribute Prepaid Cards at its Participating Stores, which Prepaid Cards (i) will not bear the name of a Cardholder, and (ii) may be loaded at Retailer’s POS Locations for the amount(s) agreed upon from time to time by the Parties (the “ Temporary Prepaid Cards ”). Temporary Prepaid Cards may not be reloaded, but may otherwise possess such features and capabilities as Bank may determine from time to time in writing, subject to Retailer’s prior written approval. Individuals who purchase Temporary Prepaid Cards will be instructed to provide Bank with information necessary to satisfy the Activation Criteria needed to activate the Temporary Prepaid Cards and to obtain reloadable Prepaid Cards that replace the Temporary Prepaid Cards and that are embossed with the Cardholders’ names (“ Permanent Prepaid Cards ”). Cardholders with Permanent Prepaid Cards may reload funds to such Prepaid Cards as set forth in this Agreement.
1.3 Retailer Customer Identification Function.
          Bank, as agent for Retailer, will assign a Retailer Customer Number to each Cardholder and will print this number on the reverse side of the Permanent Prepaid Card. Subject to Applicable Law, Bank, as agent for Retailer in connection with the Retailer Customer Number, shall collect and transmit (not less than once each month) to Retailer each Retailer Customer Number assigned hereunder, together with the associated Cardholder’s name, address, telephone number and, if available, e-mail address (the Retailer Customer Number together with the Cardholder’s name, address, telephone numbers and e-mail address, the “ Retailer Customer Information ”). Retailer and Bank shall use reasonable efforts adopt a process by which a Retailer customer may authorize the collection and transmittal of Retailer Customer Information contemplated by this Section 1.3; provided that such process shall be adopted prior to the expansion (if any) of the Program beyond Phase I. Retailer understands that the Retailer Customer Number assigned by Bank will be associated with a given Permanent Prepaid Card and may not be the same Retailer Customer Number the Cardholder would be assigned in conjunction with any other relationship the Cardholder may have with either Retailer or Bank.

 


 

Bank will work with Retailer in good faith to assist Retailer in integrating Retailer’s envisioned customer registration program into the materials for the Program. Bank shall not issue the same Retailer Customer Number more than once.
1.4 The Road to Credit.
           (a) Bank and Retailer acknowledge that one of the goals of the Program is to educate Retailer Customers and other Persons regarding management of personal finances, and to [ *** ] and other [ *** ] not have [ *** ] to [ *** ].
           (b) To the extent information on purchase patterns, bill payments and paycheck data is available under the Program, Bank agrees to work in good faith to analyze such information with respect to individual Prepaid Card performance in order to establish, to the extent practicable, a “[ *** ]” by which a Cardholder may qualify for the Consumer Credit Card Program.
           (c) In the event that Bank and Retailer mutually agree on a [ *** ] from a [ *** ], the Parties will mutually determine [ *** ] that will [ *** ] in [ *** ] and at [ *** ] for each [ *** ] who [ *** ] any [ *** ].

The initial design of the Temporary Prepaid Card and the Permanent Prepaid Card, and any modifications thereto, shall be subject to the prior written approval of Retailer, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. As between the Parties, Retailer shall own all proprietary rights, including copyrights and trademarks relating to: (i) Retailer provided artwork or designs for the Prepaid Card or related packaging, (ii) the “stars” design as it appears on the Prepaid Card or related packaging, (iii) the terms “Value Plan” and “Preferred Plan” as used in connection with a Card Product, and (iv) the marketing copy on the packaging for the Prepaid Card taken as a whole; provided, however, that (A) Retailer’s right to such marketing copy is limited to use of such marketing copy in its entirety in substantially the same design as appears on the marketing copy for the Prepaid Card, and (B) Retailer shall not have any rights to trademarks or tradenames of Bank or Green Dot.
           (b) Other General Responsibilities of Bank .

Retailer agrees that Bank may provide some or all of the Card Services through a third party servicer or a Bank Affiliate; provided, however, that (x) Bank shall obtain Retailer’s consent to any such third party servicer or Bank Affiliate, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, and (y) notwithstanding such consent, Bank will remain fully responsible for all of its obligations under this Agreement, and will be responsible for any breach by any third party servicer of Bank’s obligation to provide Card Services.

      (ii) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 1.5(e), Retailer acknowledges and approves the use by Bank and its outsource vendors of facilities in [ *** ] and in [ *** ] for providing Card Services involving direct customer contact; provided, that (i) neither Bank nor its outsource vendors shall store any personally identifiable information collected in the Program outside of the United States

Bank agrees to convert outstanding Prepaid Cards to a new Network Provider upon written request of Retailer if such conversion is required because Retailer ceases to accept Prepaid Cards issued in the existing Network Provider’s system; provided, however, that Retailer shall pay all costs and expenses in converting the Prepaid Cards from the existing Network Provider to the new Network Provider, including the costs and expenses of re-issuing the Prepaid Cards and of replacing marketing, packaging and collateral materials, and any amounts payable by Bank to the existing Network Provider.

described on Schedule 1.13 . If one-hundred and eighty (180) days after the Commencement Date, the Program meets the Minimum Requirements, then, subject to Section 1.13(c), the Program shall be expanded to all of Retailer’s Stores in accordance with an expansion plan reasonably acceptable to the Parties.
           (b) If one-hundred and eighty (180) days after the Commencement Date, the Program does not meet the Minimum Requirements, then, the Parties shall meet to determine in good faith the manner in which the Program will be modified, including whether the Program will be expanded to additional Participating Stores in additional phases of the Program (“ Additional Phases ”); provided, that (i) nothing in the Agreement shall obligate a Party to expand the Program in an Additional Phase without its prior written consent if the Minimum Requirements are not met, and (ii) if the Parties are unable to agree to the manner in which the Program will be modified within thirty (30) days after any one Party first requests in writing that the Parties negotiate, then, any Party shall have the right to terminate this Agreement by providing at least sixty (60) days prior written notice to the other Parties. Each party shall bear its own costs, fees and expenses in connection with any such termination; provided, however, that in the event the Program did not meet the Minimum Requirements as a result of Retailer’s material failure to execute the Program during Phase I as required by this Agreement, the Parties shall share equally all start up expenses and capital expenditures related to the Program, not to exceed $[ *** ].
           (c) Notwithstanding anything else contained in this Agreement, but subject to the provisions of Section 1.13(d), Retailer shall have the right to not begin to offer the Program with respect to Stores located in a jurisdiction if either (i) Retailer fails to obtain the appointments, licenses, permits and/or exemptions it reasonably deems necessary to exercise its rights or fulfill its obligations under this Agreement with respect to Stores located in such jurisdiction after undertaking commercially reasonable efforts to obtain such appointments, licenses, permits and/or exemptions, or (ii) Retailer determines on the advice of counsel that the Program as then currently provided under this Agreement is reasonably likely to violate Applicable Law if offered in such jurisdiction.
           (d) Retailer shall give the other Parties notice if Retailer intends to exercise its right under Section 1.13(c) to not begin to offer the Program with respect to Stores located in a jurisdiction, and the Parties will negotiate in good faith for not less than sixty (60) days to adopt changes to the Program or this Agreement to address the compliance issues raised by Retailer. If the negotiations fail to resolve the issue to the commercially reasonable satisfaction of the Parties, and if Retailer exercises its right under Section 1.13(c) to not being to offer the Program in a jurisdiction, then (i) the exclusivity provisions in Section 11.7(a) shall not apply to Stores located in such jurisdictions, but (ii) Retailer shall provide to Bank at all times during the Term of this Agreement the right of first refusal in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 11.7(f) with respect to Stores located in such jurisdictions if Retailer determines to begin to offer a Card Product in such Stores with another provider.
           (e) Notwithstanding anything else contained in this Agreement, once Retailer begins to offer the Program in a jurisdiction, Retailer shall have the right to cease offering the Program with respect to Stores located in such jurisdiction if Retailer determines on the advice of counsel that the Program as then currently offered in such jurisdiction pursuant to this
 
***   Confidential material redacted and filed separately with the Commission

 


 

Agreement is reasonably likely to violate Applicable Law if continued in such jurisdiction. Retailer shall give the other Parties written notice if Retailer intends to exercise its right under Section 1.13(e) to cease offering the Program with respect to Stores located in a jurisdiction, and the Parties shall, within 24 hours, meet to discuss how to address such Applicable Law and shall determine whether to terminate or suspend the Program within all affected Participating Stores. If the Parties decide to suspend or terminate the Program, Retailer shall effectuate such suspension or termination within 24 hours of such decision, and the Parties shall use commercially reasonable efforts to resume the Program at the affected Participating Stores within sixty (60) days following the suspension or termination. If the Parties are unable to resume the Program during this sixty (60) day period, after using commercially reasonable efforts to do so, the Parties shall meet to determine in good faith the manner in which the Program will be modified at the affected Participating Stores, while minimizing the risk of the actual or potential violation of Applicable Law that gave rise to the suspension or termination; provided, that (i) nothing in the Agreement shall obligate a Party to agree to the resumption of the Program at affected Participating Stores without its prior written consent, and (ii) if the Parties are unable to agree to the manner in which the Program will be so modified within sixty (60) days after anyone Party first requests in writing that the Parties negotiate, then, each Party shall have the right to terminate the Program as to the Participating Stores affected by the Applicable Law, in which case such Stores shall no longer by Participating Stores, by providing at least sixty (60) days’ prior written notice to the other Parties.
ARTICLE II
TEMPORARY AND PERMANENT PREPAID CARDS
2.1 Temporary Prepaid Cards.
          Each individual who wants a Prepaid Card must first purchase a Temporary Prepaid Card at a Participating Store, and then request the Bank to activate the Temporary Prepaid Card and issue a Permanent Prepaid Card by providing Bank with information required by Bank to verify whether the individual satisfies the Activation Criteria. Temporary Prepaid Cards (i) may be used after activation until the later of issuance, if at all, of a Permanent Prepaid Card, or use of all funds initially loaded on the Temporary Prepaid Card, (ii) may be used only in the United States, (iii) will have a minimum initial load amount of $20.00, (iv) for loads in connection with Retailer’s cashing of payroll checks and loads that are not in connection with such check cashing transactions, will have maximum initial load amounts as provided in the Prepaid Card Terms, (v) will have a daily Purchase limit as provided in the Prepaid Card Terms, and (vi) will not be reloadable. Retailer shall offer and provide each Temporary Prepaid Card to a Cardholder in packaging provided by Bank that contains applicable contract terms and disclosures for the Prepaid Card.
2.2 Activation and Issuance of Permanent Prepaid Cards.
           (a) Bank shall decide whether to activate, suspend or terminate any Prepaid Card based on the Activation Criteria. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, with respect to each individual who purchases a Temporary Prepaid Card and who is a resident of the United States or Puerto Rico and otherwise meets the Activation Criteria, Bank will issue a Permanent Prepaid Card, activate such individual’s Permanent Prepaid Card, and deactivate

 


 

such applicant’s Temporary Prepaid Card. Bank will deliver Permanent Prepaid Cards to approved Cardholders by mail or as otherwise agreed by the Parties. Upon issuance and activation of a Permanent Prepaid Card, any balance on the Cardholder’s Temporary Prepaid Card will be transferred automatically to the Permanent Prepaid Card and use of the Temporary Prepaid Card will be discontinued. Bank reserves the right to issue a Permanent Prepaid Card with a different Prepaid Card number than the Temporary Prepaid Card.
           (b) In order to mitigate fraud exposure or for risk management purposes or as necessary to comply with the requirements the Network Provider or Applicable Law, Bank, at its option and sole expense, (i) may reissue Permanent Prepaid Cards to some or all Cardholders every eighteen (18) to thirty-six (36) months, in accordance with industry standards, or (ii) may reissue Permanent Prepaid Cards to any Cardholder; provided , however , that no Cardholder shall be assessed any fees in connection with any re-issuance not initiated by the Cardholder pursuant to this subsection.
           (c) Unless otherwise expressly permitted by Bank, Permanent Prepaid Cards (i) will have a balance limits as provided in the Prepaid Card Terms (the “ Balance Limit ”), (ii) may be used internationally, (iii) will have a minimum initial load amount of $20.00, (iv) will have a maximum daily load amount as provided in the Prepaid Card Terms, (v) will have a daily cash withdrawal limit as provided in the Prepaid Card Terms, and (vi) will be reloadable. Bank and Retailer shall follow the Operating Procedures for the Card Program designed to ensure that the Balance Limit is not exceeded due to load transactions.
2.3 Types of Transactions and Loads.
           (a) Prepaid Cards maybe used in purchase and cash withdrawal transactions at merchants (including Retailer) and ATMs participating in the systems of the Network Providers in accordance with and subject to the provisions of the Cardholder Agreements, the requirements of the Network Providers and this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, Bank and Retailer acknowledge that Bank will support “cash back” transactions at Participating Stores only to the extent that such transactions presented to Bank through a “Network Provider,” are permitted under the applicable requirements of the Network Provider and do not exceed the transaction amount limits or otherwise violate the provisions of the Cardholder Agreements.
           (b) Retailer will provide for balance inquiries on Prepaid Cards at Terminals, other than those located in Lease Departments, as set forth in the Operating Procedures.
           (c) As more specifically described in the Agreement, Prepaid Cards may be loaded in the following ways: (i) POS Load of Temporary Prepaid Cards at Participating Stores of Retailer (Section 4.4); (ii) POS Load of Permanent Prepaid Cards at certain GD Merchants, including at Participating Stores (Section 4.4); (iii) Purchase of Reload Packs from GD Merchants, including at Participating Stores (Section 2.5) and subsequent transfer of funds by direction from Cardholder to Green Dot, and (iv) Direct Deposit Loads of Cardholder funds (Section 2.6(a)). Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, the methods of loading a Prepaid Card shall not be changed without the prior written agreement of the Parties.

 


 

2.4 Suspension or Termination of Prepaid Cards.
           (a) Bank, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate any Prepaid Card based on: (i) a failure by a Cardholder to continue to meet the Activation Criteria, (ii) suspicious activity or fraud with respect to the Prepaid Card or by the Cardholder; or (iii) a negative balance on the Prepaid Card.
           (b) Upon suspension or termination of a Permanent Prepaid Card by Bank for any reason and subject to Applicable Law or Network Providers’ rules, Bank shall permit the Cardholder to continue to use the Permanent Prepaid Card as a customer identification card; provided , however , that if Bank has terminated the Permanent Prepaid Card, Bank shall not be required to replace the Permanent Prepaid Card after the expiration date of the Prepaid Card, or provide any services in connection with that Permanent Prepaid Card; and provided , further , that Bank shall not continue to provide PIN verification and other services related to the Retailer Customer Number unless the parties mutually agree in writing. If a Network Provider prohibits Bank from allowing Cardholders to continue to use the Permanent Prepaid Card as a customer identification card after suspension or termination of the Prepaid Card for use in purchase or cash withdrawal transactions, Bank and Retailer will use their best efforts to negotiate a mutually acceptable solution with the Network Provider to allow continued use of the Permanent Prepaid Card as a customer identification card. If Bank and Retailer are unable to negotiate such a solution with the Network Provider, Bank will work in good faith to assist Retailer in reissuing customer identification cards at [ *** ] expense.
2.5 Reload Packs and POS Loads in GD Network.
          Bank and Green Dot shall maintain an arrangement under which Bank shall participate in the GD Network as an issuer of prepaid cards and Temporary Prepaid Cards are loaded and Permanent Prepaid Cards are reloaded by Cardholders through POS Loads at GD Merchants and the purchase of Reload Packs from GD Merchants, as applicable, provided that the Parties acknowledge that not all GD Merchants will offer the operational capability for POS Loads. Transactions in which a Cardholder purchases a Reload Pack or makes a POS Load in the GD Network shall involve a customer relationship between the Cardholder and Green Dot to the extent provided under Applicable Law. The terms and conditions of such an arrangement shall be mutually agreed upon by Bank and Green Dot pursuant to agreements separate from this Agreement. Retailer acknowledges that Green Dot and/or GD Merchants, other than Retailer, may impose fees on Cardholders for loads to Permanent Prepaid Cards issued by Bank using Reload Packs or POS Loads, and that Bank may receive compensation from Green Dot in connection with such transactions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, but subject to Retailer’s rights under Section 14.11, Bank reserves the right to terminate its obligation to allow Cardholders to reload Permanent Prepaid Cards at GD Merchants through Reload Packs or POS Loads if continuation of such transactions presents a material risk to Bank of substantial financial loss (e.g., in the case of Green Dot’s substantial failure to settle such transactions with Bank) or substantial reputation (e.g., in the case of Green Dot’s substantial failure to comply with Applicable Law).

2.6 Additional Provisions Regarding Loads.
           (a) Cardholders shall be able to load Permanent Prepaid Cards via direct deposit of Cardholder funds initiated by the Cardholder’s employer or other source approved by Bank (each, a “ Direct Deposit Load ”) in accordance with the Operating Procedures for the Card Program. Bank shall not impose any charge or fee in connection with such Direct Deposit Loads.

Schedule 1.5(d)
Cardholder Terms and Prepaid Card Fees
Wal-Mart Prepaid Card Cardholder Agreement
by GE Money Bank
This Cardholder Agreement (“ Agreement ”) sets forth the terms of your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card, which includes both the temporary Wal-Mart Prepaid Card that you purchased from a Wal-Mart store (“ Temporary Card ”), as well as the personalized version of your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card that will be mailed to you after you have completed the activation steps described below (“ Personalized Card ”). Please read it carefully and keep it for your records.
In this Agreement, the words “ you ” and “ your’ mean the individual who purchased a Temporary Card or to whom we issued a Personalized Card. “ We ,” “ us ” and “ our ” mean GE Money Bank, the issuer of the Wal-Mart Prepaid Card. “Our Mall Address” is P.O. Box 1187. Monrovia, CA 91017; and “ Green Dot ” means Green Dot Corporation. A “ transaction ” means any use of your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card to make a purchase or obtain cash.
1. Your Agreement. By activating, using, or allowing another person to use the Temporary Card, you agree to this Agreement for the Temporary Card and to the Personalized Card you may receive. If you do not agree to this Agreement, do not use your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card, save your receipt, and cancel by calling toll-free (877) 937-4098. We will refund the amount loaded to the Temporary Card and any fees you paid if you cancel before it is activated and before anyone uses it.
2. Description of the Wal-Mart Prepaid Card. The Wal-Mart Prepaid Card is a prepaid value card and not a device that accesses money in an individual checking or savings account. When you use the Wal-Mart Prepaid Card, you are redeeming the value of the card and not making a withdrawal from a deposit account. The Wal-Mart Prepaid Card is NOT a credit card or charge card that allows you to make purchases or obtain advances and pay later.
3. Activating Your Temporary Card. The maximum amount of value on a Temporary Card is $500 (or $1,100 if you purchased the Temporary Card when you cashed a check at Wal-Mart). You must activate the Temporary Card and choose a Personal Identification Number (“PIN”), either by going online to www.walmartprepaid.com or by calling toll-free (877) 965-7848. You must have both your Temporary Card and receipt with you when you call to activate or for any refunds. After you activate your Temporary Card and we have verified your identity, we will send you a Personalized Card in the mail. If we are unable to verify your identity, you will not receive a Personalized Card. We will return to you the amount loaded on the Temporary Card and any fees you paid or, at our option, allow you to use the Temporary Card until the balance on the card is zero. Important Information About Procedures for Activating a Wal-Mart Prepaid Card : To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money-laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: When you activate your Temporary Card, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
4. Activating Your Personalized Card. When you receive your Personalized Card in the mail, you will need to activate it by logging on to www.walmartprepaid.com , or by calling toll-free

 


 

(877) 965-7848. Once you activate your Personalized Card, the amount remaining on the Temporary Card will be transferred automatically to your Personalized Card, and you will no longer be able to use the Temporary Card.
5. Reloading Your Personalized Card. You may reload additional amounts onto your Personalized Card after it is activated:
    With cash or a PIN-based debit card at any participating Wal-Mart location in the United States;
 
    By cashing a payroll check from your employer or a government-issued check at a Wal-Mart store in the United States and asking the store associate to load the value to your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card;
 
    At retail locations (including Wal-Mart) that participate in the Green Dot ® Financial Network; and
 
    By direct deposit from your employer of your salary or wages.
If you reload your Personalized Card at a participating Wal-Mart location, we will charge the fee listed in the chart in Section 10. Wal-Mart may also charge you a fee for cashing a check. Please note that if you reload your Personalized Card at other locations, or if you reload your Personalized Card by purchasing a MoneyPak, we do not charge you a fee but those businesses may charge a fee to you for the service they provide. Excluding direct deposits from your employer, the maximum amount that may be loaded to a Personalized Card in a single reload is $1,100, and the maximum amount that may be loaded to a Personalized Card on a day is $2,500. In no event may the balance of any Personalized Card exceed $3,000. For security reasons, there may be additional limits on the amount, number or type of reloads you can make to your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card.
Additional Information about Reloading through the Green Dot Financial Network. The Green Dot Financial Network, operated by Green Dot, is a nationwide network of reload locations. Many retail merchants, including Wal-Mart, participate in the Green Dot Financial Network by selling MoneyPaks or accepting other reloads. To reload through the Green Dot Financial Network just purchase a MoneyPak or follow the retailer’s instructions, and visit www.getmygreen.com or call Green Dot at the number provided on the MoneyPak or by the retailer to activate the reload. Once you receive confirmation on the phone, your funds will be immediately applied to your Personalized Card.
Additional Information about Reloading through Direct Deposit. If you have arranged to have direct deposits made to your Personalized Card at least once every 60 days from the same person or company, you can call us at (877) 937-4098 to find out whether or not the deposit has been made.
6. Use of Card . You may use your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card for the following transactions:
    To make purchases everywhere Visa debit cards are accepted (merchants without a swipe terminal cannot honor your Temporary Card).
 
    To make purchases and to obtain cash back when you make a purchase at any participating Wal-Mart or SAM’S CLUB location or other merchants that honor Visa, Plus or Interlink network PIN-based cards (though some merchants may not provide cash back).
 
    To obtain cash from participating ATMs that honor Visa, Plus or Interlink network cards, or from participating financial institutions.
You may not use your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card: (a) to obtain more than $400 in cash from ATMs each day; or (b) to purchase more than $3,000 (or the amount on your Card, if less) worth of goods or services (including any cash back) in point-of-sale transactions each day. For security reasons, there may be additional limits on the amount, number or type of transactions you can make using your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card.

 


 

7. Preauthorized payments . If you have told us in advance to make regular payments using your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card, you can stop any of these payments. Here’s how: Call us at (877) 937-4098, or write us at Our Mail Address, in time for us to receive your request 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, to provide us with a copy of your notice to the payee revoking the payee’s authority to originate debits to your card, and get it to us within 14 days after you call. If we do not receive the written confirmation within 14 days, we may honor subsequent debits to your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card. We may charge you $5 for each stop-payment order you give. If these regular payments may vary in amount, the person you are going to pay will tell you, 10 days before each payment, when it will be made and how much it will be. If you order us to stop one of these regular payments 3 business days or more before the transaction is scheduled, and we do not do so, we will be liable for your losses or damages.
If you intend to use your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card for recurring transactions (ones that are automatically charged to your card each month by a merchant), you should monitor the your card balance to make sure it is sufficient to cover the transactions. Because your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card is prepaid and does not carry a credit line, a merchant that you have authorized to submit recurring transactions may suspend or cancel your service if the card does not have enough value when the recurring transaction is submitted.
8. Additional Personalized Cards. You can ask us to issue an additional Personalized Card, in the name of a person identified by you, that will be linked to your Personalized Card. We may ask for information about the person to whom you want us to issue an additional Personalized Card and reserve the right to not approve your request for an additional Personalized Card. Only two Personalized Cards may be linked together. Value may be added to linked Personalized Cards using either Personalized Card, and any value added to the linked Personalized Cards may be accessed by both Personalized Cards. Both linked Personalized Cards are governed by this Agreement, and all reloads and transactions on linked Personalized Cards will be considered together for purposes of the transaction and reload limits. The persons to whom we issue linked Personalized Cards are responsible individually and together for all obligations under the Agreement for both cards. We may honor instructions from one of you with respect to linked Personalized Cards, even if we receive conflicting or no instructions from the other person. Any notices regarding linked Personalized Cards may be provided only to the person who requested the additional Personalized Card.
9. Your Responsibilities. You are responsible for the following:
    You must maintain value on your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card to pay for each transaction and all applicable fees. If you attempt a transaction for more than the value available on your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card, the transaction may be declined.
 
    You agree we may deduct the amount of your transactions and applicable fees, and any other amount you owe us in connection with any Temporary Card or Personalized Card, directly from the balance of your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card.
 
    You must pay us immediately on demand if, for any reason, your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card does not have a sufficient balance to cover the amount of a transaction and amounts owed to us.

When you use an ATM not owned by us, you may be charged a fee by the ATM operator or any network used (and you may be charged a fee for a balance inquiry even if you do not complete a transaction).
The Operator Assisted Call fee does not apply if you are calling to report a lost or stolen Wal-Mart Prepaid Card, or if you are calling to exercise your error resolution rights.
11. Refunds and Merchant Disputes. If you are entitled to a refund for any reason, you agree to accept a credit to your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card instead of a cash refund, if the merchant does not provide cash refunds. You will settle all disputes about purchases you make using your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card with the merchant who honored the card. We are not responsible for the delivery, quality, safety, legality or other aspect of goods or services that you purchase from others with the Wal-Mart Prepaid Card.
12. FDIC Insurance; No Interest Paid. Amounts that you load or reload on a Wal-Mart Prepaid Card are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) up to the

 


 

maximum amount provided by applicable law. You will not receive any interest for the value on your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card (the interest rate and Annual Percentage Yield are 0%).
13. When Value on Your Card Is Available. Our policy is to make value that you load to your Temporary Card available for you to use immediately after you activate the Card. In addition, our policy is to make value from a reload to a Personalized Card that you make by presenting your card at a Wal-Mart or SAM’S CLUB register available for you to use immediately after the reload. Value that you reload at retailers through the Green Dot®, Financial Network (including in Green Dot reloads involving Wal-Mart or SAM’S CLUB) is not available until you complete the reload with the retailer and Green Dot. Direct deposit and other ACH credits to your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card are available when we receive the funds.
14. Authorizations and Authorization Holds. When you use your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card to pay for goods or services, certain merchants may ask us to authorize the transaction in advance and may estimate its final value. When we authorize the transaction, we commit to make the requested funds available when the transaction finally settles and may place a temporary hold on your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card’s funds for the amount indicated by the merchant. Some merchants also may add an amount to ensure that sufficient funds will be available to cover the final transaction (such as an estimated tip). If the amount of the authorization request exceeds the value on your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card, the transaction may be declined. Transactions at certain merchants that authorize high dollar amounts, especially rental car companies and hotels, may cause an “authorization” or a “hold” on your available balance for up to 90 days. Until the transaction finally settles or we determine that it is unlikely to be processed, the funds subject to the hold will not be available to you for other purposes. We will only charge your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card for the correct amount of the final transaction, however, and we will release any excess amount when the transaction finally settles. Please note that we may not manually release authorizations without a certified letter or fax from the merchant. In addition, if you commence a purchase and the merchant obtains an authorization, and then you cancel the purchase without completing it, the authorization may result in a temporary hold for that amount of funds for 10 days, or longer in some cases.
15. Sharing Information About You. We will disclose information to third parties about your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card or the transactions, loads, and reloads you make:
    Where it is necessary for completing transactions, loads, or reloads;
 
    In order to verify the existence and condition of your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card for a third party, such as a credit bureau or merchant:
 
    In order to comply with government agency or court orders;
 
    If you give us written permission; and
 
    As otherwise provided in our Privacy Policy
Please refer to our Privacy Policy that accompanies this Agreement. You hereby agree to our collection, use, and sharing of information about you and your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card as provided in our Privacy Policy, which is made a part of this Agreement.
16. Obtaining Wal-Mart Prepaid Card Information; Receipts. You may obtain information about the amount of value you have remaining on your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card by calling (877) 937-4098, or at any Wal-Mart or SAM’S CLUB register. This information, along with a 60-day history of card transactions and reloads, is also available on-line at www.walmartprepaid.com . You also have the right to obtain a 60-day written history of Wal-Mart Prepaid Card transactions and reloads by calling (877) 937-4098, or by writing us at Our Mail Address. You can get a receipt at the time you make any transaction or load with your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card at an ATM or point-of-sale terminal.
17. Periodic Statements for Personalized Cards. You may ask to receive periodic statements for your Personalized Card by calling us at (877) 937-4098 or on-line at www.walmartprepaid.com . You may request an individual periodic statement, or periodic statements for each monthly cycle in which a Personalized Card transaction or reload occurs.

 


 

However, we reserve the right to stop sending regular periodic statements if your Personalized Card is inactive. There is no charge for a periodic statement received electronically (if available), although a $2 fee is imposed for each statement if you request a statement delivered by U.S. mail.
18. Our Liability. If we do not complete a load or reload to, or transaction from your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we will be responsible for your losses or damages to the extent required by federal law. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable, for instance: (a) if, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money available on your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card to make the transaction; (b) if the ATM, bank, or merchant where you are trying to obtain cash does not have enough cash; (c) if the system, ATM or POS terminal was not working properly and you knew about the break-down before you started the transaction, load, or reload; (d) if circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood) prevent or delay the transaction, load, or reload from being completed, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken; (e) if you attempt to use a Wal-Mart Prepaid Card that has not been properly activated; (f) if the Wal-Mart Prepaid Card has been reported as lost or stolen, has been suspended by us, or we have reason to believe a transaction was not authorized by you; or (g) Wal-Mart or Green Dot does not properly transmit transaction, load, or reload information to us. There also may be other exceptions stated in our agreement with you or provided by applicable law.
19. Foreign Transactions. If your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card is used in a transaction that is submitted to the Visa, Plus or Interlink networks in a currency other than U.S. dollars, Visa will convert the transaction amount into U.S. dollars using its currency conversion procedure. Under the currency conversion procedure that Visa currently uses, the non-U.S. dollar transaction amount is converted into a U.S. dollar amount by multiplying the transaction amount in the non- U. S. dollar currency by a currency conversion rate. The currency conversion rate that Visa typically uses is either a government mandated rate, or a wholesale rate provided to Visa. The currency conversion rate that Visa uses for a particular transaction is the rate Visa uses for the applicable currency when the transaction is processed. This rate may differ from the rate in effect when the transaction occurred or when it was posted to your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card, and may be higher than the rate you could have gotten if you had converted U.S. dollars into cash. If a transaction initially in a foreign currency is converted to U.S. dollars before it is entered into the Visa, Plus or Interlink networks, the conversion rates and fees of the company that did the conversion will apply. We charge a fee of 2% of the dollar amount of each transaction that you make in a country other than the United States, whether or not the transaction was in a foreign currency.
20. Termination; Expiration. We may, at any time, suspend your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card and your ability to use your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card, for any reason allowed by law, such as if we suspect possible fraud or suspicious activity, or for security reasons. We may, at any time and for any reason, terminate a Wal-Mart Prepaid Card and your use of the Wal-Mart Prepaid Card. Your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card will expire on any expiration date on the card. Upon termination or expiration, we may stop accepting reloads to and/or transactions from the Wal-Mart Prepaid Card and we may decline to authorize a transaction with the Wal-Mart Prepaid Card. If we terminate your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card or it expires and we do not provide a substitute or replacement card, we will return to you any value remaining on the Wal-Mart Prepaid Card unless we are prohibited by law from doing so. You remain responsible for any use of your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card even after the card is terminated or expires. To the extent permitted by law, you agree to pay attorneys’ fees and collection costs we incur in collecting amounts you owe us and enforcing our rights under this Agreement.
21. Changes; Waiver. We reserve the right to change, delete or add to this Agreement and to apply any such modification to a Wal-Mart Prepaid Card that has been issued to you and to value on your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card. We will provide you notice of any such modification as required by applicable law. If we decide not to enforce our rights or charge a fee in one situation,

 


 

we are not giving up our right to enforce it or to charge the fee in a later situation.
22. Choice of Law. This Agreement and all aspects of your relationship with us with regard to your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card are governed by and construed in accordance with federal law and, to the extent that state law applies, the laws of the State of Utah.
23. Additional Terms. (a) Our business days are Monday through Friday, except for federal holidays. (b) The Wal-Mart identification number printed on the back of your Personalized Card is a number that we give to you on behalf of Wal-Mart so that Wal-Mart and its affiliates can better serve you. We do not use that number and we are not responsible for the use of that number by you, Wal-Mart, SAM’S CLUB, or any third parties with whom any of them may share the number. (c) Our agents or we may monitor your telephone calls with us and our servicers or agents. (d) You will notify us promptly if you change your address or telephone number. (e) We may transfer any of our rights or obligations. You may not transfer any of your rights or obligations. (f) If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be void or unenforceable, all other provisions of this Agreement shall remain valid and enforceable. (g) This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and us relating to the Wal-Mart Prepaid Card and supersede any other prior or contemporaneous agreement between you and us. (h) Use of a Wal-Mart Prepaid Card is subject to all rules and customs of Visa, Plus, Interlink, Green Dot and any other clearinghouse or network involved in the transaction, load, or reload.
24.1. ARBITRATION PROVISION. Please read this arbitration provision carefully. IT PROVIDES THAT ANY PAST, PRESENT OR FUTURE LEGAL DISPUTE OR CLAIM OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING STATUTORY AND COMMON LAW CLAIMS AND CLAIMS FOR EQUITABLE RELIEF, THAT RELATES IN ANYWAY TO YOUR WAL-MART PREPAID CARD OR YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH US (“CLAIM”) WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION IF EITHER YOU OR WE (OR, IF NAMED AS A CO-PARTY WITH US, WALMART OR A SERVICER) ELECTS TO ARBITRATE.
Right to Reject Arbitration: You may reject this arbitration provision, in which event neither you nor We will have the right to require arbitration. Rejection will not affect any other aspect of this Agreement. To reject the arbitration provision, you must send us a notice within 60 days after you activate your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card. The notice must include your name, address, and Wal-Mart Prepaid Card number and be mailed to PO Box 981429, El Paso TX 79998-1429. This is the only method you can use to reject the arbitration provision.
As used in this provision: “We,” “Us,” and “Our” mean (1) GE Money Bank and all of its respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, predecessors, successors, assigns, employees, officers and directors (collectively, the “Bank”), and (2) Wal-Mart and all of its respective parents, wholly or majority owned subsidiaries, affiliates, predecessors, successors, assigns, employees, officers and directors (collectively, “Wal-Mart”), and any company that provides services with respect to your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card and all of its respective parents, wholly or majority owned subsidiaries, affiliates, predecessors, successors, assigns, employees, officers and directors (collectively, “Service”), if Wal-Mart or a Servicer is named as a co-party with the Bank in a claim asserted by you.
This arbitration provision covers all Claims, except that We will not elect to arbitrate an individual Claim brought by you in small claims court or its equivalent, unless that Claim is transferred, removed, or appealed to a different court. This provision replaces any existing arbitration provision between you and Us.
The following describes the arbitration procedure, and its implications:
  Notice: If you or We elect to arbitrate, the other party must be notified. Your notice must be sent to GE Consumer Finance, Legal Operation, 777 Long Ridge Road, Stamford, CT 06927. Notice can be given after a lawsuit has been filed, in which case it can be made in papers in the lawsuit.
  Administrator: The person who starts the arbitration proceeding must choose an administrator,

 


 

which can be either the National Arbitration Forum, P.O. Box 50191, Minneapolis, MN 55405, www.arb-forum.com (800) 474-2371; or the American Arbitration Association, 335 Madison Avenue, New York NY 10017, www.adr.org, (800) 778-7879. The actual arbitrator will be selected under the administrator’s rules, and must be a lawyer with at least ten years of experience.
  Applicable Law: This Agreement involves interstate commerce and this arbitration provision is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§1 et seq. (the “FAA”). Utah law shall apply to the extent state law is relevant under Section 2 of the FAA in determining the validity of this provision. The arbitrator has to follow: (1) the Substantive law, consistent with the FAA, that would apply if the matter had been brought in court, (2) this arbitration provision, and (3) the administrator’s rules. The arbitrator is authorized to award remedies that would apply if the individual action were in a court (including, without limitation, punitive damages, which shall be governed by the constitutional standards employed by the U.S. Supreme Court).
  Location/Fees: The arbitration will take place in a location reasonably convenient to you. If you ask us, we will pay all filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees the administrator or arbitrator charges up to $2,500. If the cost is higher, you can ask us to pay more and we will consider your request in good faith. Under all circumstances we will pay all amounts we are required to pay under applicable law.
  Judgment/Appeals. A court may enter judgment upon the arbitrator’s award. The arbitrator’s decision will be final and binding except for: (1) any appeal right under the FAA; and (2) any party may appeal decisions relating to Claims of more than $100,000 to a three-arbitrator panel appointed by the administrator, which will reconsider all over again any aspect of the appealed award. If you appeal, We will consider in good faith a request that We pay any additional fees of the administrator or arbitrator.
IMPORTANT LIMITATIONS AND RESTRICTIONS: IF A CLAIM GOES TO ARBITRATION, NEITHER YOU NOR WE WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO: (1) HAVE A COURT OR A JURY DECIDE THE CLAIM; (2) ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY (I.E., THE RIGHT TO OBTAIN INFORMATION FROM THE OTHER PARTY) TO THE SAME EXTENT THAT YOU OR WE COULD IN COURT; (3) PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION IN COURT OR IN ARBITRATION, EITHER AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR A CLASS MEMBER; (4) ACT AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL IN COURT OR IN ARBITRATION; OR (5) JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE YOUR CLAIMS(S) WITH CLAIMS OF ANY OTHER PERSON. THE RIGHT TO APPEAL IS MORE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION THAN IN COURT. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY ALSO NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. ONLY A COURT MAY DETERMINE THE VALIDITY AND EFFECT OF PARTS 3, 4 AND 5 OF THIS PARAGRAPH. IF A COURT SHOULD HOLD SUCH PART(S) TO BE INVALID, THEN THE ENTIRE PROVISION SHALL BE NULL AND VOID. HOWEVER, THIS WILL NOT LIMIT THE RIGHT TO APPEAL SUCH HOLDING. IF A COURT SHOULD HOLD ANY OTHER PART(S) OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION TO BE INVALID, THE REMAINING PARTS SHALL BE ENFORCEABLE.
This arbitration provision will survive the termination of your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card and the Wal-Mart Prepaid Card relationship and will remain in force no matter what happens to you or your Wal-Mart Prepaid Card. If the administrator’s rules conflict with the rules described in this provision, this provision will apply.

WHEREAS the Bank, Wal-Mart, certain subsidiaries of Wal-Mart and Green Dot Corporation have entered into a Prepaid Card Program Agreement, dated as of October       , 2006 (the “Prepaid Card Agreement”), which sets forth the terms and conditions under which the Bank shall issue and service, and Wal-Mart shall distribute, Prepaid Cards (the “Card Program”);

Huntington Drive, Suite 205, Monrovia, California 91016 and Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Wal-Mart”).

In the program, Prepaid Card cardholders, as well as other customers participating in the Green Dot® Financial Network (the “Network”) may load funds on prepaid cards and transfer funds to other participants in the Network.

A “POS Load” is a transaction in which a cardholder may load a prepaid card through the Network by providing funds to a cashier at a point-of-sale in a retail store, who swipes the prepaid card through an electronic terminal Money Pales and POS Loads are sometimes referred to in this Agreement together as “Load Packs”.

§ 6-1213. Records

Joint examination or acceptance of an examination report shall not be deemed a waiver of examination assessments provided by law, and joint reports and reports accepted under this subsection are considered an official report of the department for all purposes. Information obtained by examinations prescribed by this article shall be disclosed only as

 


 

provided in § 6-129 .
§ 6-1214. Liability of licensees

The superintendent shall act on the application within one hundred twenty days after the date on which the application is complete, unless the applicant consents in writing to an extended period. An application that is not denied or approved within that period shall be deemed approved as of the first business day after the expiration of that period.
C. The superintendent shall deny the application to acquire control of a licensee if he finds that the acquisition of control is contrary to law or determines that disapproval is reasonably necessary to protect the interest of the public. In making that determination, the superintendent shall consider both of the following:
1. Whether the financial condition of the person that seeks to control the licensee might jeopardize the financial condition of the licensee or prejudice the interests of the public in the conduct of the business regulated under this chapter.
2. Whether the competence, experience, integrity and overall moral character of the person that seeks to control the licensee, or the officers, directors and controlling persons of the person that seeks to control the licensee, indicate that it would not be in the interest of the public to permit that person to control the licensee.

2. Prepaid Card Pricing and Fees .
     (a)  Price Leadership .
          (1) The Amended Fee Schedule is hereby added to Schedule 1.5(d) to the Agreement, and the fees and prices set forth therein may be implemented as Prepaid Card Fees after the Amendment Effective Date on a date or dates chosen by Retailer at its discretion; provided , however , that Retailer shall use its best efforts to implement such changes on or before January 15, 2009 to fees for the initial issuance of Temporary Prepaid Cards and to fees for POS Loads for all Prepaid Cards at Participating Stores, whether sold before, on or after that date.
          (2) Notwithstanding the foregoing paragraph (1): (A) Bank shall use its best efforts to implement the change, on or before January 15, 2009, to the [ *** ] on Prepaid Cards, whether sold before, on or after that date; (B) Bank and Green Dot expeditiously shall implement the [ *** ] in [ *** ] (other than [ *** ]) on Prepaid Cards sold before January 15, 2009, according to a roll-out schedule reasonably established by Retailer in consultation with the other Parties, which schedule shall take into account the operational requirements of such other Parties with respect to any changes; provided, however , that in no event shall such fees be implemented later than January 15, 2009; (C) Bank shall not be required to replace any Temporary Prepaid Card packaging until all existing Temporary Prepaid Card packaging has been sold, or until January 29, 2009, whichever occurs first; (D) Bank shall use its best efforts to ensure that all Temporary Prepaid Cards and all Permanent Prepaid Cards shipped after January 29, 2009 will carry the new pricing; and (E) Bank, without its prior written consent, shall not be required to implement any changes to fees applicable to Prepaid Cards sold before January 15, 2009 which require new Prepaid Card Terms to be sent to the Cardholders. In any event, all packaging shipped for Temporary Prepaid Cards and Prepaid Cards shall bear the new pricing within fourteen (14) weeks from the date on which Retailer provides final approval of the packaging. If Retailer does not implement the [ *** ] referred to in the foregoing paragraph (1) until after January 15, 2009, then the references to “January 29, 2009” in this paragraph (2) shall be deemed to be changed to the date which is two (2) weeks after the date on which Retailer implements said fee changes.
     (3) Section 1.5(d) of the Agreement is hereby replaced in its entirety with the following:
1.5(d) Prepaid Card Terms .
(i) (A) The Parties acknowledge that [ *** ] to offer [ *** ] current prepaid payment products in the marketplace. Accordingly, in connection with and subject to the terms of this Agreement, Retailer shall be solely responsible for determining the
 
***   Confidential material redacted and filed separately with the Commission

 


 

financial products and services that Retailer makes available to its customers in Stores. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, commencing on the Amendment Effective Date Retailer at any time may request, by written notice to the other Parties, that Bank and / or Green Dot, as applicable, [ *** ] any [ *** ] with [ *** ]. If, within [ *** ] after such a request, Bank and / or Green Dot, as applicable, have not agreed to each of Retailer’s requested change(s), then Retailer may terminate this Agreement upon [ *** ] written notice to the other Parties. In addition, commencing [ *** ], Section 11.7 (Exclusivity) shall no longer apply [ *** ] after the date of such notice of termination (the “ Exclusivity Termination Date ”). If, on or after the Exclusivity Termination Date, Retailer begins to sell Card Products (other than Card Products issued by Bank) which bear the “Wal-Mart” name and / or Retailer Marks or otherwise fall within the definition of “Exclusive Card Product” (the “New Card Products”), and the number of Prepaid Cards sold during such non-exclusive period between the Exclusivity Termination Date and the on which the Agreement terminates is less than the number of Prepaid Cards sold during the equal number of days immediately prior to the Exclusivity Termination Date, as adjusted for seasonality in monthly Prepaid Card sales during the prior year (such difference, if any, is the “Exclusivity Delta”), Retailer shall pay to Bank a fee (the “Early Termination Fee”) equal to $[ *** ] times the lesser of (a) the number of New Card Products sold prior to the date on which the Agreement terminates, or (b) the Exclusivity Delta. Retailer shall pay the Early Termination Fee to Bank within [ *** ] after the date on which the Agreement terminates.
     (B) If Bank, exercising its authority to set Prepaid Card Fees, determines to implement the changes to the Prepaid Card in accordance with this Section 1.5(d)(i), such changes shall be implemented according to a Participating Store roll-out schedule reasonably established by Retailer in consultation with the other Parties, which schedule shall take into account the operational requirements of such other Parties with respect to any changes to Prepaid Card Fees other than the fee assessed upon issuance of a Temporary Prepaid Card or the fee for a POS Load to a Permanent Prepaid Card at Participating Stores.
     (C) If, as a result of Retailer’s request which is accepted and implemented by Bank and/or Green Dot (as applicable), the [ *** ] or [ *** ] are [ *** ], Retailer’s revenue share adjustment shall be calculated based upon Retailer bearing or benefitting, as applicable, from [ *** ] percent ([ *** ]%) of such economic impact, as described in the examples set forth in Exhibit A to Schedule 5.2 ;
 
***   Confidential material redacted and filed separately with the Commission

 


 

provided , however , that in any Program Year, Retailer shall bear no more than [ *** ] percent ([ *** ]%) of the total of such impact during such Program Year.
     (D) If, as a result of Retailer’s request which is accepted and implemented by Bank and/or Green Dot (as applicable), the change(s) result in mutually agreed upon, increased costs to Bank or Green Dot (as applicable) because of changes to marketing materials, customer messaging, card mailers, replacement packaging, or Prepaid Card Terms, or because a change in Prepaid Card Terms notice mailing is required, Retailer shall bear [ *** ] percent ([ *** ]%) of such mutually agreed upon costs.
     (E) In addition to the rights provided under paragraphs (A) through (D), in the event Retailer terminates this Agreement pursuant to paragraph (A) above, Retailer shall have the right to [ *** ] the [ *** ] or [ *** ] to [ *** ] or [ *** ], as applicable, in connection with a Prepaid Card, a POS Load or a Reload Pack by [ *** ] the [ *** ] the [ *** ] or [ *** ] to which [ *** ] was [ *** ] to the [ *** ], and the [ *** ] or [ *** ] which [ *** ] had [ *** ] to the [ *** ] that would have been [ *** ] on [ *** ]. The costs to be incurred by Bank or Green Dot in connection with such [ *** ], if any, shall be subject to the mutual agreement of the Parties; provided, however, that in no event will Retailer require any change to Temporary Prepaid Card or Permanent Prepaid Card packaging in connection with the [ *** ]. Retailer may implement the [ *** ] under this paragraph (E) at any time after receipt of notice by Bank or Green Dot, as applicable, that Retailer’s request for a change is denied. For the avoidance of doubt, (i) Retailer’s [ *** ] right under this Section 1.5(d)(i)(E) does not affect the right of Bank or Green Dot, as applicable, to establish fees and pricing for Prepaid Cards and the Load Program in accordance with the terms of this Agreement; and (ii) in no event shall the impact on [ *** ] calculated according to the methodology set forth in Section 5.2 exceed [ *** ] the actual cost of the [ *** ].
     (ii) The Prepaid Card Terms, including the fees and charges imposed on Cardholders by Bank for each type of Prepaid Card (“ Prepaid Card Fees ”), are determined by Bank and agreed to by Retailer as set forth from time to time in Schedule 1.5(d) . Bank may modify, amend or supplement any or all of the Prepaid Card
 
***   Confidential material redacted and filed separately with the Commission

 


 

Terms upon thirty days prior notice to Retailer, except [ *** ].
     (iii) Nothing contained in this Agreement shall limit or restrict Bank’s ability to modify and / or supplement the Prepaid Card Terms to the extent Bank in good faith deems necessary in order to comply with the requirements of Applicable Law, the requirements of Network Providers, or the direction of a Governmental Authority, and Bank may proceed with the modification, amendment or supplement without the consent of Retailer; [ *** ].
     (iv) In addition to the Prepaid Card Terms listed in Schedule 1.5(d) , Bank reserves the right to assess additional Prepaid Card Fees, with the written consent of Retailer (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) for additional Prepaid Card services provided by Bank and approved by Retailer after the date hereof (e.g., picture identification services). Bank also reserves the right to restrict use of the Prepaid Cards at certain merchant classification categories that Bank reasonably determines are not consistent with the Program, such as Internet gambling web-sites.
     (v) Bank agrees to develop a new pricing plan for Cardholders who frequently use their Wal-Mart Prepaid Cards, and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to implement such new plan no later than January 15, 2009, or such other date as Bank and Retailer may mutually agree upon.
     (vi) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, Bank shall not [ *** ] a [ *** ] (viewed as a whole) to [ *** ] for distributing Temporary Prepaid Cards or POS Loads than [ *** ] to
 
***   Confidential material redacted and filed separately with the Commission

 


 

any [ *** ] which are sold at substantially similar prices (including back-end fees) as those charged for Temporary Prepaid Cards and POS Loads to Prepaid Cards sold by Retailer.
     (vii) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, if Green Dot refuses to implement a change to the price of Reload Packs suggested by Retailer because such price change would have an adverse economic impact on Green Dot, Green Dot may cease selling Reload Packs through Retailer upon [ *** ] prior written notice to Retailer. At the end of such [ *** ], at Green Dot’s option, either Green Dot shall implement a [ *** ] as [ *** ], or Retailer’s obligations under Section 11.7(g) shall terminate with respect to loads to Prepaid Cards other than POS Loads; provided , however , that if Retailer implements the alternative [ *** ], the fee for such device shall be [ *** ] for a POS Load.
     (b)  Payroll Check Loading Fee
Section 5.3 (Payroll Check Loading Fee) [ *** ].
3. Online Bill Payment .
     (a) The phrase “and Online Bill Payment Services” is added after “Direct Deposit Loads” in the fourth line of Section 1.5(a).
     (b) Effective April 1, 2008, “Intentionally Omitted” is deleted from Section 1.12, and is replaced with the following:
1.12 Online Bill Payment Services and Online Debit Load Services
(a) Commencing on or about April 1, 2008, in connection with the Card Program, Bank shall offer such online bill payment services through the Prepaid Card Website as Bank and Retailer may agree upon from time to time in writing. Bank and Retailer agree that such services shall be initially offered on behalf of Bank by CheckFree Services Corporation, pursuant to the Online Services Agreement, dated February 15, 2008, between GE Money Bank and CheckFree Services Corporation, in the form acknowledged by Wal-Mart (the “Online Services Agreement”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, only Bank (and not CheckFree Services Corporation or any successor service provider) may charge a Cardholder a fee for an online bill payment service, which fee shall be subject to Retailer’s approval.
 
***   Confidential material redacted and filed separately with the Commission

 


 

(b) Bank shall provide Retailer with reasonable advance notice prior to making any proposed changes to Online Services Agreement. Bank shall not make any changes to the Online Services Agreement which would reasonably be expected to have a material adverse impact on Retailer, without the prior written consent of Retailer. Bank represents and warrants to Retailer that, as of the Amendment Effective Date, there have been no amendments or modifications to the Online Services Agreement.
(c) Upon written notice to Retailer, Bank reserves the right to terminate the Online Services Agreement (or any similar agreement with a replacement vendor) if (i) CheckFree Services Corporation or the replacement vendor, as applicable, fails to perform its obligations thereunder, or (ii) such termination is needed to comply with safe and sound banking practices, the directions of a Governmental Authority or Applicable Law.
(d) Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 1.12, after Bank’s receipt from, or delivery to, CheckFree Services Corporation of a notice to terminate the Online Services Agreement, Bank and Retailer shall use commercially reasonable efforts to transition the online bill payment services to a mutually agreed upon replacement vendor on terms and conditions mutually agreed upon by Bank and Retailer so as to avoid an interruption of online bill payment services; provided, that if Bank and Retailer are unable to complete the transition to a replacement vendor prior to termination of the Online Services Agreement, Bank shall not be obligated to offer online bill payment services at the Prepaid Card Website until Bank and Retailer mutually agree upon a replacement vendor and the terms and conditions on which the replacement vendor shall provide the online bill payment services at the Prepaid Card Website on behalf of Bank.
     (c) Effective April 1, 2008, Section 9.1(b) is amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

All aspects of the Prepaid Card Website shall comply with the Wal-Mart.com style guide provided to Bank from time to time. Bank shall transfer the registration of the

 


 

domain name www.walmartmoneycard.com to Retailer by January 30, 2009.
