This document, including the accompanying Rates and Fees Table and the Additional Terms of Your Cardmember Agreement, is an agreement between you, the Cardmember, and us, KeyBank National Association, and is referred to throughout this document as the "Cardmember Agreement" or "Agreement." If you have any questions, please call us using the number on the back of your Card or on your billing statement.
Your Agreement and Promise to Pay: By using the Account, making a payment on the Account, or signing an application for any Card we send you, you agree to the terms of this Agreement. You agree to pay us all amounts that we lend to you on your Account, together with Interest Charges and fees as provided in this Agreement.
YOUR ACCOUNT TERMS
|IMPORTANT TERMS||WHAT IT MEANS||HOW IT AFFECTS THE ACCOUNT|
|You and your||All persons who applied for the Account or who are liable on the Account by any other means||If there are joint Cardmembers, we may send communications to either of you, we may disclose information about the Account to either of you, and we may accept instructions from either of you (even if you have a disagreement).|
|We, us, our and KeyBank||KeyBank National Association||We are the creditor of your Account and the issuer of your Card.|
|Credit Limit||Your credit limit is the maximum amount that you can have outstanding on your Account at any time. You agree not to request any transactions that would cause your Account balance to exceed the credit limit. You are responsible for balances on your Account including amounts charged in excess of your credit limit.||We will advise you of the total credit limit on your Account when we first send you your Card and when we post it on your monthly billing statement. Your Cash Advance limit is only a portion of your total available (unused) credit limit. Your total credit limit and Cash Advance limit may change from time to time. We will notify you of any such changes through your billing statement or by sending you a separate notice, which may be after the change occurs. If no separate Cash Advance limit is listed on our billing statement, then the amount of your credit limit available for Cash Advances is your total credit limit. We may cancel, change, or rescind your credit availability at any time. We may approve a transaction that causes your Account balance to exceed the credit limit, but we do not treat such a transaction as a request for an increase in your credit limit.|
|Authorized Users||You are responsible for any use of your Account by an authorized user or anyone else that you permit to use your Account. You must notify us to revoke an authorized user's permission to use your Account. You are responsible to recover from that authorized user and destroy any Cards, checks and other devices that can be used as a means of accessing your Account.||If you request, we may issue Cards that access your Account to your authorized users. If you revoke an authorized user, we may close your Account and issue a new Card(s) with a different Account number.|
|Cash Advance||The following transactions will be treated as Cash Advances: all advances to get cash over the counter, through an ATM, or other "cash-like" transactions (such as purchasing a money order, traveler's check, casino betting chip, or a lottery ticket) as determined by us. We sometimes call these Cash Equivalents.|
|Daily Periodic Rate (DPR)||The daily periodic rate for a given balance is equal to the APR for that balance divided by 365. It is a daily interest rate.|
|Payment Due Date||This is the date by which we must receive the minimum payment in order for it to be on time. Your monthly billing statement will list the Payment Due Date.|
An Account will be in default if:
1) you fail to make at least the minimum payment when due; 2) you violate any other provision of this Agreement; 3) we believe you may be unwilling or unable to pay your debts on time; 4) you file for bankruptcy; or 5) you become incapacitated or die.
If your Account is in default, we may close your Account or terminate or suspend your credit privileges without notice and require full payment of your outstanding balance immediately.
We can also begin collection activities. To the extent permitted by law, if you are in default because you have failed to pay us, we will require you to pay our collection costs, attorneys' fees, court costs and all other expenses of enforcing our rights under this Agreement.
USING YOUR ACCOUNT
You may use your Account only for personal, family or household purposes. You may not use your Account for illegal purposes, and you may not use your Account for internet gambling (even if legal). However, you are still responsible for any transactions that you enter into in violation of this Agreement.
|USE||WHAT IT MEANS||HOW IT AFFECTS THE ACCOUNT|
|Purchases||You may use the Account to buy goods and services.||We authorize charges to your Account in accordance with the terms of the Agreement.|
|Balance Transfers and Fees||You can transfer balances to your Account by contacting us. We will charge a Balance Transfer fee on the amount of each Balance Transfer, as set forth in the Rates and Fees table.||We permit Balance Transfers from most accounts issued by other banks. We do not permit Balance Transfers from other accounts or loans with us or any of our affiliates.|
|Cash Advances and Fees||
You may obtain cash from ATMs or at banks.
We will charge a Cash Advance fee or Cash Equivalent fee on the amount of each Cash Advance, as set forth in the Rates and Fees table.
|We treat certain transactions as Cash Advances. See the Cash Advance section under Your Account Terms, above.|
|Checks and Fees||
You may use checks provided by us to access your Account (sometimes referred to as "convenience checks"). Checks will be added to your Purchase balance (but there is no grace period to avoid interest charges).
We will charge a Convenience Check Advance Fee on the amount of each Convenience Check Advance, as set forth in the Rates and Fees table.
|We may provide checks for your use; we have the right not to pay a check for any reason. You may not use a convenience check to make a payment on the Account or any other Account with us.|
|Overdraft Protection Advances and Fees||
You may set up this Account to cover overdrafts on your checking account at KeyBank ("Checking Account"). Overdraft Protection Advances ("OD Advances") will be treated as Cash Advances.
We will charge an Overdraft Protection Transfer Fee to your Card Account each day an Overdraft Protection Advance occurs as set forth in the Rates and Fees Table.
We allow your Card Account to be linked to a KeyBank Checking Account. Only one OD Advance will be made each day. The terms of this Agreement and your checking account agreement will apply. In order to link your Card Account to your Checking Account, all persons who applied for the Card Account or who are liable on the Card Account must be owners of the Checking Account. If at any time for any reason the persons who applied for the Card Account or who are liable on the Card Account and the owners of the Checking Account are different, your right to take OD Advances will terminate.
At the end of each business day, an automatic OD Advance will be made on your Card Account when the total amount of withdrawals from your Checking Account made during the day and service charges we post to your Checking Account for the day, exceed the amount of funds in your Checking Account that is available for withdrawal. You request that these automatic OD Advances be made and agree that the amount of the OD Advances will be advanced from your Card Account up to the amount that is available under your Cash Advance limit. The Cash Advance limit amount used for authorization of OD Advances is calculated as of the end of the prior business day and may be updated with current day information if available. Cash Advances occurring during the day will reduce the amount of the Cash Advance limit available for OD Advances. The automatic OD Advance will equal the lesser of the amount needed to cover the unpaid amount of withdrawals and service charges in your Checking Account, or the amount of available funds under your Cash Advance limit, rounded up to the nearest $50.00 increment. Please note that we may pay items into overdraft, at our discretion, and charge an overdraft fee on your Checking Account if you do not have available funds under your Cash Advance limit for an OD Advance of the total overdraft amount.
If you fail to properly maintain your accounts, in addition to other rights and remedies we have, we may terminate your Overdraft Protection. You may cancel the Overdraft Protection services at any time by giving us written notice at the address printed on your Card Account monthly statement. We may cancel your Overdraft Protection and stop making OD Advances at any time.
|Recurring Transactions||You may authorize a third party to bill charges on a recurring basis to your Account. To withdraw your authorization, you must contact the third party. If your Account is closed or suspended, your Account number is changed, or to withdraw authorization, you will need to contact the third party.||We are not responsible for recurring transactions if your Account is closed, suspended, or the Account number changes. You agree that we may (but are not required to) provide the third party your current Account status, Card number and/or expiration date to facilitate payments.|
|Promotions||You may receive special offers related to your Account.||Any special offer is subject to this Agreement, unless specified otherwise.|
|Rewards||If your Account provides you with the opportunity to earn rewards, points may be redeemed for brand named merchandise, gift cards, travel rewards, or other redemption items as we determine from time to time.||We will provide you with all information and terms about your rewards separately. We will include on your billing statement all rewards you have earned.|
|Foreign Transaction Fee and Exchange Rate||For transactions that take place outside the United States, a fee may be assessed on the U.S. Dollar amount of the transaction. See the Rates and Fees Table above for the fee applicable to the Account.||MasterCard International ("MasterCard") will convert transactions made in a foreign country using a government-mandated or wholesale rate in effect on the processing date (which may differ from the rate on the date of your transaction). The rate used may differ from the rate that MasterCard actually receives.|
|Authorization of Transactions/Closing the Account||You may close your Account at any time by notifying us either in writing at the address shown on your billing statement or by phone at the number provided on your billing statement. We will not honor any convenience check or authorize any transactions after your Account is closed. You remain responsible for any balance on your Account.||We may refuse to authorize any transactions at our sole discretion, even if there is sufficient available credit. We are not responsible for any losses associated with a declined transaction. We may close your Account or terminate your credit privileges at any time for any reason, subject to applicable law. Your Account balance will continue to accrue Interest Charges and fees and remain subject to all terms of this Agreement. If we do so, you may not use your Card or any checks we have issued.|
You will receive a billing statement each month, if one is required. It will show your minimum payment and the Payment Due Date, and will provide instructions for making your payment.
|IMPORTANT INFORMATION||WHAT IT MEANS||HOW IT AFFECTS THE ACCOUNT|
|Payment Instructions||You must follow the payment instructions provided on your monthly billing statement. All payments made by check must be drawn on a U.S. financial institution in U.S. Dollars. You authorize us to either use information from your check to make a one-time electronic fund transfer from your account or to process the payment as a check transaction.||As long as you make your payment in accordance with the instructions on your billing statement by the date and time payments are due, we will credit your payment as of the day it is received. We may accept and process late, partial and payments marked as "paid in full" without losing our rights under this Agreement. Any such payment must be sent to the special address identified on your statement.|
|Minimum Payment||You agree to pay at least the minimum payment when due. You also agree to pay any past due amounts and also any amounts in excess of your credit limit when billed on your monthly billing statements or sooner if we ask.||We will calculate your minimum payment based on the method described in the Additional Terms of Your Cardmember Agreement. The minimum payment will appear on your monthly billing statement, and may include any past due amounts and any amounts in excess of your credit limit.|
|How to Avoid Paying Interest on Purchases and When We Begin to Charge Interest||
If you paid the New Balance that was shown on your previous billing statement by the Payment Due Date on that statement, then:
If a New Balance was shown on your previous billing statement and you did not pay the New Balance by the Payment Due Date on that statement, then we will not impose Interest Charges on any Purchases during the current billing period if you pay the New Balance shown on your current billing statement by the Payment Due Date in the current billing period.
Except as described in the column on the left, we add new Purchases to your Account, and they begin to accrue Interest Charges, on the date of the transaction.
There is no grace period for Balance Transfers or Cash Advances. We add new Balance Transfers, Overdraft Protection Advances, Checks or Cash Advances to your Account no earlier than the date of the transaction (for Checks, the date the payee deposits the Check). We may choose to add fees to your Account on the date of the related transaction, the date they are posted, or the last day of the billing period.
Amounts added to your Account remain subject to Interest Charges until paid in full.
|Application of Payments||If you make more than the minimum payment when due, the excess above the minimum payment is applied to balances with the highest APRs first.||We may apply the amount of your payment less than or equal to your minimum payment and any credits to your Account in any way we choose. We generally apply these payments to lower APR balances first, which means you may pay higher Interest Charges.|
|Credit Balances||You may request a refund of credit balances at any time.||If no refund is requested, we will apply credit balances to new transactions, unless prohibited by law.|
|CALCULATION||HOW WE DO THIS|
|We calculate the Daily Balance for each day||by taking the beginning balance for each type of transaction each day, adding any new transactions and any accrued but unpaid interest for the prior day, and then subtracting any payments and/or credits and other adjustments. We treat any daily balance that is a credit balance as a zero balance.|
|We calculate the Average Daily Balance||by adding all of the Daily Balances for each day in the billing period and then dividing by the total number of days in the billing period.|
|We calculate the Interest Charges for each balance||by applying the daily periodic rate (DPR) for that balance to the "average daily balance" for that balance. We multiply the result by the number of days in the billing cycle. That gives us the total Interest Charges for that balance for that billing period.|
|We add the Interest Charged to the Account||by adding the Interest Charges to the balance to which it applies (for example, we add Interest Charges on the Purchases balance to the Purchases balance). Cash Advance, Overdraft Protection Transfer, and convenience check fees are added to the Cash Advance balance and Balance Transfer fees are added to the Balance Transfer balances, as applicable, and all other fees are added to the Purchases balance.|
|We add the Minimum Interest Charge||by adding the amount set forth in the Rates and Fees table to one or more of the categories of transactions in which there are balances. We apply the Minimum Interest Charge for any month where Interest Charges are due but are calculated as less than the Minimum Interest Charge.|
FEES AND OTHER ACTIONS
There may be times when circumstances result in a fee or other action being assessed on the Account. The Rates and Fees Table lists the amounts of these fees. All such fees will be added to the Purchase balance, unless otherwise indicated. Additional fees for special services you request may apply. You will be advised of the amount of such fees at the time of your request.
|TO AVOID||ACTIONS YOU MUST TAKE||WHAT WE WILL CHARGE YOU|
|Late Payment Fee||Ensure that we receive at least the minimum payment by the Payment Due Date shown on the monthly billing statement.||If any payment is late, we may charge you a late payment fee. See the Rates and Fees Table for the late payment fee applicable to your Account. In no event will your late payment fee exceed the amount of your minimum payment due.|
|Stop Payment Fee||Do not stop payment on checks.||We may charge a stop payment fee of $34.00 if we stop payment on a check at your request.|
|Collections||Do not default.||If the Account is in default, we may take the actions described above in the Default section under Important Definitions, above.|
|Statement Reprint Fee||You can request a copy of your statement.||We will add a Statement Reprint fee of $6 to your purchase balance if you request a copy of your monthly statement.|
Rush Order Fee -
|You can request that a new or replacement card be sent to you on an expedited basis.||We will add a Rush Order fee of $25 to your Purchase balance if you request that a new or replacement card be sent to you on an expedited basis.|
|FAQ||WHAT YOU MUST DO||HOW IT AFFECTS THE ACCOUNT|
|My Card is lost or stolen, or my Account has been compromised?||Contact us immediately and stop using your Account. Contact us at the address or telephone number listed on your billing statement or Card.||You will not be liable for any unauthorized use that occurs after you notify us. You may, however, be liable for unauthorized use that occurs before your notice to us. In any case, your liability will not exceed $50.|
|My Account is closed or suspended?||You must still repay all amounts you owe under this Agreement.||You remain responsible for your balance.|

|ARBITRATION AND WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL RIGHTS|
Arbitration Provision. This Arbitration Provision sets forth the circumstances and procedures under which a Claim or Claims (as defined below) may be arbitrated instead of litigated in court. This Arbitration Provision supersedes and replaces any existing arbitration provision between you and us. This Arbitration Provision will apply to the Account(s) unless you notify us in writing that you reject the Arbitration Provision within 60 days of opening the Account(s). Send your rejection notice to KeyBank N.A., PO Box 93752, Cleveland, Ohio 44101-5752. Your notice must be legible and include your name, the names of any joint account holders and the account number(s), the last four digits of your card number, the date of your notice, your address (street, city, state and zip code), your daytime telephone number, and must be signed by at least one of the joint account holders. Your rejection notice should not include any other correspondence. Calling us to reject the Arbitration Provision or providing notice by any other manner or format than as described above will not operate as a rejection of this Arbitration Provision and consequently this Arbitration Provision will become part of this Agreement. Rejection of this Arbitration Provision does not serve as a rejection of any other term or condition of the Agreement with us governing your Account(s).
As used in this Arbitration Provision, the word "Claim" means any claim, dispute, or controversy between you and us arising from or relating to this Agreement or the Account(s), including without limitation, the validity, enforceability, or scope of this Arbitration Provision or this Agreement. "Claim" or "Claims" include claims of every kind and nature, whether pre-existing, present or future, including without limitation, initial claims, counterclaims, cross-claims, and third-party claims, and claims based upon contract, tort, fraud, and other intentional torts, constitutions, statutes, regulation, common law, and equity (including, without limitation, any claim for injunctive or declaratory relief). The word "Claim" or "Claims" is to be given the broadest possible meaning and includes, by way of example, and without limitation, any claim, dispute, or controversy that arises from or relates to (a) any Account subject to the terms of this Agreement (b) any electronic funds transfer from or to any account (c) advertisements, promotions, or oral and written statements related to this Agreement or the Account, (d) your application for the Account; and (e) the collection of amounts owed by you to us.
This Arbitration Provision will not apply to Claims previously asserted, or which are later asserted, in lawsuits filed before the effective date of this Arbitration Provision or any prior arbitration provisions between you and us, whichever is earlier. However, this Arbitration Provision will apply to all other Claims, even if the facts and circumstances giving rise to the Claims existed before the effective date of this Arbitration Provision.
Any Claim shall be resolved, upon the election of you or us, by binding arbitration pursuant to this Arbitration Provision and the applicable rules of either the American Arbitration Association or J.A.M.S/Endispute in effect at the time the Claim is filed (the "Arbitration Rules"). You may select one of these organizations to serve as the arbitration administrator if you initiate an arbitration against us or if either you or we compel arbitration of a Claim that the other party has brought in court. In addition, if we intend to initiate an arbitration against you, we will notify you in writing and give you twenty (20) days to select one of these organizations to serve as the arbitration administrator. If you fail to select an administrator within that twenty (20)-day period, we will select one. In all cases, the arbitrator(s) should be a lawyer with more than ten (10) years of experience or a retired judge. If for any reason the selected organization is unable or unwilling or ceases to serve as the arbitration administrator, you will have twenty (20) days to select a different administrator from the above list; if you fail to select a different administrator within the twenty (20)-day period, we will select one. In all cases, a party who has asserted a Claim in a lawsuit in court may elect arbitration with respect to any Claim(s) subsequently asserted in that lawsuit by any other party or parties.
IF ARBITRATION IS CHOSEN BY ANY PARTY WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM, NEITHER YOU NOR WE WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE THAT CLAIM IN COURT OR HAVE A JURY TRIAL ON THAT CLAIM, OR TO ENGAGE IN PRE-ARBITRATION DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED FOR IN THE APPLICABLE ARBITRATION RULES. FURTHER, YOU WILL NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO PARTICPATE AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR MEMBER OF ANY CLASS OF CLAIMANTS PERTAINING TO ANY CLAIM SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION EXCEPT AS SET FORTH BELOW. THE ARBITRATOR'S DECISION WILL BE FINAL AND BINDING. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY ALSO NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. THE FEES CHARGED BY THE ARBITRATION ADMINISTRATOR MAY BE GREATER THAN THE FEES CHARGED BYA COURT.
There shall be no authority for any Claims to be arbitrated on a class action or private attorney general basis. Furthermore, arbitration can only decide your or our Claim(s) and may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons that may have similar claims. There shall be no pre-arbitration discovery except as provided for in the applicable Arbitration Rules. Any arbitration hearing that you attend shall take place in the federal judicial district of your residence. At your written request, we will pay all fees charged by the arbitration administrator for any Claim(s) asserted by you in the arbitration, after you have paid an amount equivalent to the fee, if any, for filing such Claim(s) in state or federal court (whichever is less) in the judicial district in which you reside. (If you have already paid a filing fee for asserting the Claim(s) in court, you will not be required to pay that amount again.) If the arbitrator issues an award in our favor, you will not be required to reimburse us for any of the fees we have previously paid to the administrator or for which we are responsible. Each party shall bear the expense of that party's attorneys', experts', and witness fees, regardless of which party prevails in the arbitration, unless applicable law and/or this Agreement gives you the right to recover any of those fees from us. In the event you do not prevail in the arbitration, we will not seek to recover our attorneys', experts' or witness fees from you. This Arbitration Provision is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act ("FAA"), 9 U.S.C. Sections 1 et. seq. The arbitrator shall apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law, and at the timely request of any party, shall provide a brief written explanation of the basis for the award. In conducting the arbitration proceeding, the arbitrator shall not apply the federal or any state rules of civil procedure or rules of evidence. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitrator's decision will be final and binding, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA and except that, if the amount in controversy exceeds $10,000.00 any party can appeal to a three-arbitrator panel administered by the arbitration administrator which shall reconsider de novo (i.e. without regard to the original arbitrator's findings) any aspect of the initial award requested by the appealing party. The decision of the panel shall be by majority vote. The costs of such an appeal will be borne by the appealing party regardless of the outcome of the appeal.
This Arbitration Provision shall survive termination of all Accounts subject to this Agreement. If any portion of this Arbitration Provision is deemed invalid or unenforceable under any law or statute consisted with the FAA, it shall not invalidate the remaining portions of this Arbitration Provision or the Agreement. In the event of a conflict or inconsistency between the applicable Arbitration Rules and this Arbitration Provision, this Arbitration Provision shall govern.

I. Reward Programs
Under the Program, you may earn and use points ("Rewards Point(s)") to obtain a variety of rewards ("Rewards") including merchandise, gift cards, travel rewards, cash back and domestic U.S. air travel rewards as full payment for goods or services available through us.

As of April 2015, the Basic Rewards Program was terminated and all enrolled Customers are now Customers of the Relationship Rewards Program. The Program Rules will govern the Program, as may be amended from time to time.

II. Enrollment & Registration.
1. Generally. To receive benefits under the Program, enrollment of one or more Eligible Products is necessary. Any Signer on an Eligible Product may enroll such Product into the Program, and once an Eligible Product is enrolled, then all other Signers of such enrolled Eligible Product will automatically be enrolled into the Program. Annual Fees are assessed based upon the Eligible Product(s) which is/are enrolled and the type of Program chosen.

is enrolled in Online Banking), or visit a KeyBank branch. KeyBank will process

c. Conversion Credit Card Accounts. Key has converted, and will from time to time convert various credit card portfolios to KeyBank's Relationship Rewards Program all as set forth on Schedule 1.2.c (herein the "Conversion Accounts"). All Conversion Accounts will both be a subset of Eligible Credit Cards and unless specifically designated otherwise, will have the same terms and conditions of all other Eligible Credit Cards.

Once you have registered, all of your Rewards Points activity relating to any Enrolled Product for which you are a Signer, will be visible in your Rewards Account and you will be able to redeem Rewards Points as set forth in Section IV of this Agreement. In the future you may need to re-register with additional self-identifying information and change your user ID to be your e-mail address due to planned system upgrades.
|a. Enrolled Checking Account. If you are a
Signer on an Enrolled Checking Account, you may use the rewards number found on
your Checking Account monthly statement, or available in Online Banking, to
register with KeyBank Rewards at www.keybankrewards.com. You will need

After issuance of your new card in accordance with the previous sentence, you may use the number on your plastic credit card to register with KeyBank Rewards at www.keybankrewards.com.
4. Eligible Products. A product eligible for enrollment in the Program is a checking account or a credit card account listed in Table 1 of this Section II (referred to singularly as an Eligible Checking Account or an Eligible Credit Card Account or an "Eligible Product" or collectively as "Eligible Products"), except that a checking account listed in Table 1 will not be considered an Eligible Checking Account if such account is opened as an agency account, custodial account, estate account, or guardianship account. Eligible Products may become ineligible as set forth in Section VI below. Debit cards are no longer eligible for enrollment on a stand alone basis; rather, usage of a debit card that accesses an Enrolled Checking Account (herein a "Debit Card") is permitted to earn points as set forth in Section III.
5. Signers and Primary Signers. A "Signer" always refers to an individual and not to an entity, organization, trust or other business. Signers for Eligible Checking Accounts and Eligible Credit Card Accounts are further defined as follows:
|a. Signer on an Eligible Checking Account. A
signer is an individual who signs a signature card (i) in his or her own
individual capacity, or (ii) on behalf of an entity, organization or trust.
Additionally, a signer may be a person designated on KeyBank's systems, books
or records as being a signer. The owner of an account may be different than the
actual signers. A signer includes sole owners, co-owners, powers of attorney,
authorized minor users and trustees. An authorized user of a Debit Card who has
not signed the signature card, is not a Signer for the purposes of this
Agreement or the Program.
b. Signer on an Eligible Credit Card Account. A signer is an individual who is obligated to repay the outstanding amount under an Eligible Credit Card. A signer includes a borrower, co-borrower or guarantor of the Eligible Credit Card. Additionally, if the Eligible Credit Card is a business credit card for which the business is the obligor, then signer shall also include (i) the individual who is the legal representative of the business who applied for the business to receive the Eligible Credit Card and/or (ii) an administrative person the Business has designated to manage the Rewards Account including viewing and redeeming Points earned by the business. Additionally, a signer may be a person designated on KeyBank's systems, books or records as being a signer. An authorized user of an Eligible Credit Card who is not a signer as defined in this subsection is not a Signer for the purposes of this Agreement or the Program.
c. Primary Signer. The "Primary Signer" is the Signer whose name appears first on our records for the Eligible Checking Account. For an October 2013 Conversion Account or an October 2014 Conversion Account, the Primary Signer will be the borrower, and all co-borrowers and/or guarantors will be considered other Signers.
6. Annual Fee. The annual membership fee will depend on the type of Eligible Product you have enrolled and the Rewards Program you are enrolled in as set forth in the chart below. There is no annual membership fee if you are enrolling in the Program solely by virtue of being a signer on an Eligible Credit Card; however, should you wish to also enroll an Eligible Checking Account to be eligible to earn additional points pursuant to the Program's terms and conditions, you will need to pay the associated annual fee for the Eligible Checking Account. The annual membership fee is charged on an Eligible Product basis and not on a Signer basis. Therefore, regardless of the numbers of Signers on an Eligible Product, only one annual membership fee will be charged to a particular Eligible Checking Account. If you enroll more than one Eligible Checking Account in the Program, you will be charged the corresponding annual membership fee for each Eligible Checking Account enrolled.
|a) This membership fee is subject to change without
b) If a Program annual membership fee applies, you authorize KeyBank to charge this fee automatically to your Enrolled Checking Account on the first Checking Account statement cycle date after enrollment and then annually thereafter on the statement that includes the anniversary date of enrollment unless you notify KeyBank of cancellation of participation in the Program at least 60 days prior to the enrollment anniversary. This annual membership fee is non-refundable.

If you are enrolled in the Relationship Rewards Program, the term "Excluded Transactions" as defined above will apply to the Reward Point calculation for transactions made using your Eligible Credit Card (if applicable) and your Debit Card if your Eligible Checking Account is enrolled.IV. Rewards Account and Point Redemption
1. Rewards Account Generally. Each enrolled Eligible Product will have an associated internal rewards account established by KeyBank to track the Rewards Points earned under the Program. If you are a Signer and are enrolled in the Program, you will have a rewards account ("Rewards Account"), which you may access after you have registered (as set forth in Section II above). Your Rewards Account number will appear on your statement and will be available online and elsewhere as determined by KeyBank from time to time. Your Rewards Account will allow you to view the available point balance relating to any Enrolled Checking Account or Eligible Credit Card for which you are a Signer. The available point balance is an aggregation of Rewards Points available to any Signer, subject to certain exceptions, on an enrolled Eligible Product for activities and behaviors engaged in by the Signers of such accounts as set forth in Section III entitled "Earning Points". Notwithstanding the foregoing, certain Points are awarded only to the Primary Signer of an Enrolled Checking Account, all as set forth in Section III above entitled "Earning Points". You shall have no interest in or rights to the Rewards Account except as provided in these Program Rules, and the Rewards Account cannot be assigned or transferred by you. Any assignment or transfer of the Rewards Account is null and void. In order to access the Rewards Account, you will need to have registered as set forth in Section II above entitled Enrollment and Registration.
2. Rewards Account Mechanics. Your Rewards Account will allow you to view all of the Rewards Points which have been awarded relative to any Enrolled Checking Account and/or Eligible Credit Card, for which you are a Signer. You will be able to redeem any and all Rewards Points viewable in your Rewards Account. An authorized user of a Debit Card or an Eligible Credit Card will not be able to view or redeem Rewards Points. However, activity of other Signers, who also may view and redeem from a common available point balance for which you both are Signers, may reduce the availability of Rewards Points in your Rewards Account. All Signers on an enrolled Eligible Product will be able to view and redeem all Rewards Points earned for the enrolled Eligible Products. With respect to Enrolled Checking Accounts, any Signer will be able to view and redeem all Rewards Points earned for the Enrolled Checking Account, both for Bonus and Activity Points and Relationship Rewards Points. For example, if a Signer on a joint Enrolled Checking Account opens a Relationship Product in his or her own name only, Relationship Rewards Points would appear in the available points balance of the Enrolled Checking Account and could be viewed and redeemed by any and all Signers on the Enrolled Checking Account. Relationship Rewards Points for any Relationship Product opened by a Business or by any Signer on a Business Enrolled Checking Account will be displayed in the available point balance relating to the Business Enrolled Checking Account and could be viewed and redeemed by any and all Signers on the Business Enrolled Checking Account.
3. Redemption. Rewards Points must be redeemed by a Signer on an Eligible Product that is enrolled in the Program. Except as specified below, to redeem Rewards Points for rewards, log into www.keybankrewards.com or contact the KeyBank Rewards Center. KeyBank Rewards Center representatives are available Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. EST and Saturday through Sunday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST. For October 2013 Conversion Accounts, only the Primary Signer may redeem through www.keybankrewards.com and all other Signers must call 1-888-333-7780 to redeem Rewards Points.
4. Reservation of Rights. KeyBank reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to change how Rewards Points are earned and allocated at any time.
5. Contacting Key. Your available Rewards Points balance is available at www.keybankrewards.com and also can be obtained by calling KeyBank at 1-800-539-2968, or otherwise as determined by KeyBank from time to time. Additionally, the Rewards Points balance for the Eligible Credit Card is available on the credit card billing statement; the Rewards Points balance for the Enrolled Checking Account is available on the checking account statement as well as on branch receipts. If you are enrolled in online banking, you can access your Rewards Points balance through KeyBank Online Banking or through Key Business Online. KeyBank Rewards Center representatives are available Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. EST and Saturday through Sunday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST time. Important information regarding the Relationship Rewards Program ("KeyBank Rewards Information") can be found at www.key.com/rewards.
6. Redemption Allocation and Expiration. If unused, the Rewards Points carry a 4-year expiration limitation based on the date the Rewards Points were earned, and upon expiration all unused Rewards Points shall be forfeited immediately. Rewards Points redeemed and/or expired, if applicable, will be based on a first-in, first-out process. For October 2013 Conversion Accounts and October 2014 Conversion Accounts, converted Rewards Points will retain the same expiration date as they had under your previous rewards program. Points earned after the last full billing cycle prior to conversion for such Conversion Accounts will be treated as Rewards Points earned under the KeyBank Relationship Rewards Program for the purposes of determining an expiration date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Rewards Points earned with any of the following Eligible Credit Cards will not expire: Key Private Bank MasterCard Credit Card, Key Private Bank World Elite MasterCard Credit Card and KeyBank Select World MasterCard.
7. Transferability. Rewards Points earned are not transferable except as used in accordance with these Program Rules, have no cash value and cannot under any circumstances be used as payment for any Customer account balance or any other liability or obligation you have to KeyBank.
8. No Partial Awards. No partial awards will be issued upon redemption of Rewards Points.
9. Value. Rewards Points and rewards have no value, are not refundable or exchangeable and cannot be used except in accordance with these Program Rules and applicable terms and conditions of rewards suppliers.
10. Availability. Rewards Points are available after transactions are posted and based on the specifications set forth in the Guide.
Customers enrolled in Relationship Rewards can transfer all or part of their Rewards Points balance in their Relationship Rewards Account to another Relationship Rewards Account at KeyBank ("Points Transfer"). In order to transfer Rewards Points, a Customer can call customer service at 1-888-333-7780. A Customer must know the recipient's Relationship Rewards Account number in order to complete the transfer. If there is more than one Customer associated with a Relationship Rewards Account, each Customer may only transfer Rewards Points that were earned by such Customer. Only Customers with Relationship Rewards Accounts in good standing (as determined by KeyBank in its sole discretion) can participate in Points Transfers, either as a transferor or transferee. Transferred points retain the expiration date assigned at the time the transferred points were originally earned, not the date of transfer. All transfers are final. If Rewards Points subject to 1099 reporting are transferred, the 1099 reporting and associated tax liability remains with the Customer who earned the points.
VI. General Program Details
1. Continuing Eligibility. Eligibility is limited to KeyBank's Customers, whose enrolled Eligible Products are in good standing. You will only earn Rewards Points as long as KeyBank, in its sole discretion, determines that your enrolled Eligible Products are acceptable to KeyBank and are eligible for participation in the Program. An ineligible Checking Account and/or Credit Card Account includes, without limitation, an account that is frozen, restricted, closed, terminated, cancelled, expired, inactive, dormant, has a legal status, or an account that is subject to litigation or any adverse (or conflicting) claim of any third party.
2. Cancellation and Discontinuation. If you voluntarily cancel enrollment in the Program or if KeyBank cancels the enrollment due to the account not being eligible, all unused accrued Rewards Points and rewards shall be forfeited immediately. If you are terminated as a Signer on an enrolled Eligible Product for any reason, whether due to your own action, action by KeyBank, or death, Activity and Bonus Points and Relationship Rewards Points earned by you prior to termination will remain in the available point balance and will be available for use by the Signers of the Eligible Product in connection with which the Points were earned. You may discontinue your participation in the Program at anytime without notice. KeyBank's cancellation, change or suspension of the Program may result in the forfeiture of earned points and a change in the redemption of any outstanding rewards.
3. Reservation of Rights. The Program and benefits are offered at the sole discretion of KeyBank. KeyBank reserves the right to cancel, change or temporarily suspend the Program at any time without notice, including without limitation, to (a) terminate any Customer's or Signer's membership in the Program for any reason; (b) reduce or eliminate all Rewards Points earned (but not yet credited to your Rewards Account); (c) add to or modify the terms and conditions of these Program Rules, including, as to the Relationship Rewards Program and the Guides, additions or modifications to the number of Rewards Points earned for any activity, deletions or modifications to activities that earn Rewards Points, or modifications to qualifications for Activity and Bonus Events or Relationship Products; (d) discontinue KeyBank's participation in the Program; (e) terminate or modify its Program; (f) modify the formula to calculate Rewards Points earnings; and (g) in the event of any fraud or abuse of the Program privileges or violation of the Program Rules (including any attempt to sell, exchange or otherwise transfer Rewards Points or any instrument exchangeable for the Program).

The fair market value of points earned for opening a savings account or a Certificate of Deposit, for increasing the balance in your savings account or Certificate of Deposit or renewing your Certificate of Deposit along with interest earned on your Savings account or Certificate of Deposit (further described in Section III above) will be reported to the IRS on Form 1099-INT. The 1099-INT is issued for the Savings Account or the Certificate of Deposit since the award of Rewards Points is for opening or increasing the balance of such account and such an award is considered to be interest earnings. The issuance of the 1099-INT for the Savings Account or Certificate of Deposit occurs even though the Rewards Points will be added to the available point balance for the Enrolled Checking Account.
10. Travel Taxes and Fees. You are responsible for payment of any passenger facility charges, air segment taxes, departure taxes, customs fees, baggage charges, security taxes or any other charges assessed by governmental entities or airline company as a result of travel under the Program, as well as any shipping, courier, fulfillment or certificate fees associated with the Program.
