HSBC Personal Internet Banking customers will not receive Form 1099-INT in the mail unless specifically requested through a secure BankMail within Personal Internet Banking.

The Bank is authorized, at its option, to charge your account in the amount of any Payment Order and to execute a Payment Order, even if the Payment Order conflicts with any other instructions received by the Bank from you (unless your transfer is a remittance transfer, as defined in Subpart B of Regulation E [12 CFR section 1005.30], in which case additional rules apply which will be provided in the disclosures we give you when you use that service) or results in an overdraft or payment to or for the benefit of a person authorized by you to sign checks or transfer funds for you. If there are not sufficient available funds in your account, the Bank may, without prior notice or demand, charge any account maintained by you with the Bank or setoff against any amount the Bank owes you in order to obtain payment of your obligations. By submitting this form, you are rejecting the Level One Security Procedures offered by the Bank and choosing the Level Two Security Procedures described in the FUNDS TRANSFERS section of the Bank's Rules for Consumer Deposit Accounts, which you acknowledge are commercially reasonable pursuant to Section 4A-202(c) of the Uniform Commercial Code unless remittance transfer rules apply.
