The following terms, together with your loan request on the Site, as defined herein, constitute a binding agreement (the "Agreement") between you and Cross River Bank, a federally-insured New Jersey state-chartered commercial bank. The terms "CRB," "we," "us" and “our” refer to Cross River Bank and its successors or assigns as appropriate. BY ELECTRONICALLY SIGNING THE AGREEMENT, YOU HAVE SIGNIFIED YOUR AGREEMENT TO BE BOUND BY ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CONTAINED IN THIS AGREEMENT. Under this Agreement, you agree to receive and repay one or more installment loans from us, through the website lending platform at www.peerform.com, including any subdomains thereof (the "Site") operated on our behalf by Peerform Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Peerform"). These terms affect your rights and you should read them carefully and print a copy for your records. Your agreement to these terms means you agree to borrow and repay the money if your loan is funded under the terms of this Agreement, agree to transact with us electronically, and agree to have any dispute with us resolved by binding arbitration.
1. Loan Terms. Your loan will have a principal balance between Four Thousand Dollars ($4,000.00) and Twenty-Five Thousand Dollars ($25,000.00) in the specific amount and on the terms set forth in the disclosures provided to you through your online Peerform account. You agree and acknowledge that the initial loan disclosures made to you are estimates (other than APR) and may be as much as Forty Percent (40%) less than the initially requested amounts. All loans are unsecured, fully-amortizing, closed-end loans with a three (3) year term. Please see your Borrower Membership Agreement and other information provided to you in connection with registering your loan request on the Site for additional details. Your obligations, including your obligation to repay principal and interest, are set forth in this Agreement and in the Note or Notes that you will make to us, as described in section 3 below.
2. Credit Decisions. Your loan request must include your annual income and such other information as we may require and obtain through the Site. We will consider public assistance, alimony, child support, or separate maintenance income as income if you choose to include such sources of income in your application and such income is likely to continue. We reserve the right to verify any information you submit by requiring you to produce appropriate documentation or other proof, and also reserve the right to conduct such verification through a third party. You hereby authorize us to request and obtain data from a third party to verify any information you provide to us in connection with your loan request. We may terminate consideration of your application at any time in our sole discretion.
3. Loan Funding and Closing. You may post a loan request on the Site, and various investors ("Investors") will be able to review your loan request. Investors may commit funds to purchase, in various amounts. You acknowledge that an Investor's commitment to purchase your loan from us does not confer any rights to you. You understand that individual Investors make their own decisions whether to commit funds to purchase. Peerform may also choose to invest in all or part of your loan but is not obligated to do so.
Your loan will close and issue, unless you notify us in writing of your election to terminate your loan request sufficiently far in advance of the loan closing for us to cancel the loan.
Closing and issuance of your loan can occur before the expiration of the fourteen (14) day period set forth above if sufficient commitments are received. In no event, will we be obligated to notify you in advance of the date upon which your loan may or will close.
If we extend a loan to you, you agree to execute by power of attorney (as described below), and be bound by the terms set forth in the form of promissory note attached as Exhibit A (the "Note") as to your loan. You agree to execute multiple Notes if we request you to do so, provided that the aggregate principal amounts of such Notes shall equal the total amount of your loan. Peerform will execute your Note(s) on your behalf pursuant to a power of attorney you grant to Peerform in the Borrower Membership Agreement. You authorize us to disburse the loan proceeds by Automated Clearing House ("ACH") transfer to your designated account. BY COMPLETING YOUR APPLICATION AND SUBMITTING YOUR LOAN REQUEST, YOU ARE COMMITTING TO OBTAIN A LOAN FROM US IN THE AMOUNT AND ON THE TERMS SET FORTH IN YOUR AGREEMENTS WITH US AND THE DISCLOSURES PROVIDED TO YOU IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR REQUEST, SHOULD YOUR REQUEST BE FUNDED. YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO RESCIND THE LOAN ONCE MADE BUT YOU MAY PREPAY THE LOAN AT ANY TIME WITHOUT PENALTY. We will not lend you any funds unless and until sufficient commitments are received from Investors and/or Peerform.
4. NO GUARANTEE. WE DO NOT WARRANT OR GUARANTEE (1) THAT YOUR LOAN REQUEST WILL BE FUNDED, OR (2) THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE A LOAN AS A RESULT OF POSTING A REQUEST.
5. Making Your Loan Payments. You agree to make all regularly scheduled monthly loan payments by either check or automatic withdrawal from your designated account. Any fees authorized to be charged on your loan may be collected using electronic funds transfers initiated by us from your designated account. If such fees are assessed on your account by us, those fees will be debited separately from your monthly payment amount. If you elect to make payments by recurring automatic withdrawal, you authorize us and our successors and assigns to debit your designated account by ACH transfer for the amount of each payment due on each due date. You may elect to make payments by personal check by contacting Peerform at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by regular mail to: Peerform, Inc., 711 3rd Avenue, 6th Floor, New York, NY 10017, Attention: Operations. If you elect to make payments by check, you acknowledge and agree that there will be a Fifteen Dollar ($15.00) check processing fee per payment, subject to applicable law. This authorization does not affect your obligation to pay when due all amounts payable on your loan, whether or not there are sufficient funds therefore in such accounts. The foregoing authorization is in addition to, and not in limitation of, any rights of setoff we may have. With regard to payments made by automatic withdrawal, you have the right to stop payment of automatic withdrawals or revoke your prior authorization for automatic withdrawals by notifying your financial institution at least three (3) banking days before the scheduled date of transfer. You must notify us of the exercise of your right to stop a payment or revoke your authorization for automatic withdrawals at least 3 banking days before the scheduled date of transfer. All payments are to be applied first to the payment of all fees, expenses and other amounts due (excluding principal and interest), then to accrued interest, and then the balance on account of outstanding principal; provided, however, that after an Event of Default (as defined below), payments will be applied to your obligations as we determine in our sole discretion.
6. Other Borrower Obligations. You agree that you will not, in connection with your loan request: (i) make any false, misleading or deceptive statements or omissions of fact in your listing; (ii) misrepresent your identity, or describe, present or portray yourself as a person other than yourself; (iii) give to or receive from, or offer or agree to give to or receive from any Peerform member or other person any fee, bonus, additional interest, kickback or thing of value of any kind except in accordance with the terms of your loan; (iv) represent yourself to any person, as a representative, employee, or agent of ours, or purport to speak to any person on our behalf; or (v) provide, in your loan request or in communications on the Site related to your loan request, information upon which a discriminatory lending decision may be made, such as your race, color, religion, national origin, sex, or age. You acknowledge and agree that we may rely without independent verification on the accuracy, authenticity, and completeness of all information you provide to us. You certify that you are a resident of the United States and the proceeds of the loan will not be used for the purpose of purchasing or carrying any securities or to fund any illegal activity or used to purchase or carry on any (i) gambling or gaming including, without limitation, "OTB" or similar walk-in betting parlor; (ii) religious or charitable organization; (iii) disco or nightclub or other adult entertainment; (iv) the sale or display of any pornographic or obscene material or the conduct of any obscene, nude or semi-nude live performance or modeling; (v) pawn shop; (vi) drug rehabilitation clinic, halfway house or abortion or family planning clinic; (vii) church, synagogue, mosque or any other area of worship; (viii) business in which a principal has been convicted of a felony; (ix) Internet merchant; (x) apartment house; (xi) limousine or taxi service; (xii) arms/weapons dealer; (xiii) long distance provider; (xiv) art or antique dealer; (xv) lotteries or raffles; (xvi) auctions; (xvii) mailing lists; (xviii) auto rentals agency; (xix) mall kiosk; (xx) bail bond service; (xxi) massage parlor; (xxii) bar/tavern; (xxiii) modeling agency; (xxiv) check cashing institution; (xxv) network provider; (xxvi) collection agency; (xxvii) companion or escort service; (xxviii) computer hardware and software retailer; (xxix) professional billing service; (xxx) computer online service; (xxxi) resort land promotion; (xxxii) consignment store; (xxxiii) resume preparer; (xxxiv) contractor/home repair; (xxxv) sexual encounter agency; (xxxvi) cooperative discount group; (xxxvii) sports forecasting; (xxxviii) credit restoration/repair service; (xxxix) talent booking agency; (xl) deposit broker; (xli) tattoo parlor; (xlii) drug paraphernalia; (xliii) third party hotel reservation service; (xliv) embassy, consulate or ministry; (xlv) third party processor; (xlvi) employment agency; (xlvii) towing agency; (xlviii) furniture store; (xlix) travel agency; (l) gambling establishment; (li) used auto sales; (lii) health spa/club (except country clubs); (liii) vitamin and supplement sales; (liv) income tax service; (lv) water purification; (lvi) insurance agency; or (lvii) website host.
7. Fees. A non-refundable origination fee paid by you to CRB as provided under your agreement with Peerform, Inc. will be deducted from your loan proceeds, so the loan proceeds delivered to you will be less than the face amount of your loan request. You acknowledge that the origination fee will be considered part of the principal on your loan and is subject to the accrual of interest. In addition to the other fees set forth in this Agreement, you agree to pay a fee of $15.00 for each ACH transfer or check that you initiate or submit and that is returned or fails because of insufficient funds in your account or for any other reason. Each attempt to collect a payment is considered a separate transaction, so an unsuccessful payment fee will be assessed for each failed attempt. The bank that holds your designated account may assess its own fee in addition to the fee we assess. If any payment is Fifteen (15) or more days late, we may charge a late fee in an amount equal to the greater of Five Percent (5%) of the unpaid installment or $15.00. We will charge only one late fee on each late payment. These fees may be collected using ACH transfers initiated by us from your designated account. Any such late fee assessed is immediately due and payable. Any payment received after 6:00 P.M. E.T. on a banking day is deemed received on the next succeeding banking day.
8. Default and Termination. You will be deemed in default on your loan (each, an "Event of Default") if you: (1) fail to pay timely any amount due on your loan; (2) file or have instituted against you any bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings or make any assignment for the benefit of creditors; (3) die or are declared dead; (4) commit fraud or make any material misrepresentation in this Agreement, the Note, the Borrower Membership Agreement or any other documents, applications or related materials delivered to us in connection with your loan; or (5) fail to abide by the terms of this Agreement. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, we may exercise all remedies available to us under applicable law, this Agreement, and the Note, including without limitation (1) demand that you immediately pay all amounts owed on your loan or (2) terminate this Agreement. Any loans you obtain prior to the effective date of termination resulting from listings you placed on the Site shall remain in full force and effect in accordance with their terms.
9. Collection & Reporting of Delinquent Loans. We may report information about our experience with you to consumer reporting agencies. Late payments, missed payments, or other defaults in connection with this loan may be reflected on your credit report.
TCPA Consent & Privacy: You expressly consent to receiving calls and messages, including autodialed and prerecorded message calls and SMS messages (including text messages) from us, our affiliates, marketing partners, agents and others calling at their request or on their behalf, at any telephone numbers that you have provided or may provide in the future (including any cellular telephone numbers). Your cellular or mobile telephone provider will charge you according to the type of plan you carry. You also agree that we may contact you by email, using any email address you have provided to us or that you provide to us in the future. We may listen to and/or record phone calls between you and our representatives without notice to you as permitted by applicable law. For example, we listen to and record calls for quality monitoring purposes.
10. Assignment of Your Loan. Following the closing of your loan, you hereby agree that we may, without notice to you, assign all of our right, title and interest in this Agreement and/or your Note(s).
11. NO GUARANTEE. WE DO NOT WARRANT OR GUARANTEE (1) THAT YOUR LOAN REQUEST WILL BE FUNDED, OR (2) THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE A LOAN AS A RESULT OF POSTING A REQUEST.
12. Entire Agreement. This Agreement and any Note represents the entire agreement between you and us regarding the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications, promises and proposals, whether oral, written or electronic, between us with respect to your loan request and loan. The CRB Privacy Notice attached as Exhibit B is incorporated by reference into this Agreement.
14. Notices. All notices and other communications to you hereunder may be given by email to your registered email address or posted on the Site, and shall be deemed to have been duly given and effective upon transmission. You acknowledge that you have sole access to such email account and your area on the Site and that communications from us may contain sensitive, confidential, and collections-related communications. If your registered email address changes, you must notify us of the change by sending an email to email@example.com or calling 1-800-338-8049. You also agree to update your registered residence address and telephone number on the Site if they change.
15. NO WARRANTIES. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES TO YOU, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
16. LIMITATION ON LIABILITY. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL WE BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY LOST PROFITS OR SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, EVEN IF INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. FURTHERMORE, WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY TO YOU REGARDING THE EFFECT THAT THE AGREEMENT MAY HAVE UPON YOUR FOREIGN, FEDERAL, STATE OR LOCAL TAX LIABILITY.
17. Miscellaneous. You may not assign, transfer, sublicense or otherwise delegate your rights or obligations under this Agreement to another person without our prior written consent. Any such assignment, transfer, sublicense or delegation in violation of this section 17 shall be null and void. We are located in the state of New Jersey and this Agreement and the Note will be entered into in the state of New Jersey. The provisions of this Agreement will be governed by federal laws and the laws of the state of New Jersey to the extent not preempted, without regard to any principle of conflicts of laws that would require or permit the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any waiver of a breach of any provision of this Agreement will not be a waiver of any other subsequent breach. Failure or delay by either party to enforce any term or condition of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such term or condition. If at any time after the date of this Agreement, any of the provisions of this Agreement shall be held by any court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, void or unenforceable, such provision shall be of no force and effect, but the illegality and unenforceability of such provision shall have no effect upon and shall not impair the enforceability of any other provisions of this Agreement. The headings in this Agreement are for reference purposes only and shall not affect the interpretation of this Agreement in any way.
a. For purposes of this arbitration provision, "we" "us" and "our" refer to Cross River Bank and its successors, assigns, employees, officers, directors, representatives and agents. Either you or Peerform may, at its sole election, require that the sole and exclusive forum and remedy for resolution of a Claim be final and binding arbitration pursuant to this section 18 (the "Arbitration Provision"), unless you opt out as provided in section 18(b) below. As used in this Arbitration Provision, "Claim" shall include any past, present, or future claim, dispute, or controversy involving you (or persons claiming through or connected with you), on the one hand, and us (or persons claiming through or connected with us), on the other hand, relating to or arising out of this Agreement, any Note, the Site, and/or the activities or relationships that involve, lead to, or result from any of the foregoing, including (except to the extent provided otherwise in the last sentence of section 18(f) below) the validity or enforceability of this Arbitration Provision, any part thereof, or the entire Agreement. Claims are subject to arbitration regardless of whether they arise from contract; tort (intentional or otherwise); a constitution, statute, common law, or principles of equity; or otherwise. Claims include matters arising as initial claims, counter-claims, cross-claims, third-party claims, or otherwise. The scope of this Arbitration Provision is to be given the broadest possible interpretation that is enforceable.
b. You may opt out of this Arbitration Provision for all purposes by sending an arbitration opt out notice to Peerform, Inc., 711 3rd Avenue, 6th floor, New York, NY 10017, Attention: Arbitration Department, which is received at the specified address within 30 days of the date of your electronic acceptance of the terms of this Agreement. The opt out notice must clearly state that you are rejecting arbitration; identify the Agreement to which it applies by date; provide your name, address, and social security number; and be signed by you. You may send the opt out notice in any manner you see fit as long as it is received at the specified address within the specified time. No other methods can be used to opt out of this Arbitration Provision. If the opt out notice is sent on your behalf by a third party, such third party must include evidence of his or her authority to submit the opt out notice on your behalf.
c. The party initiating arbitration shall do so with the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA") or JAMS. The arbitration shall be conducted according to, and the location of the arbitration shall be determined in accordance with, the rules and policies of the administrator selected, except to the extent the rules conflict with this Arbitration Provision or any countervailing law. In the case of a conflict between the rules and policies of the administrator and this Arbitration Provision, this Arbitration Provision shall control, subject to countervailing law, unless all parties to the arbitration consent to have the rules and policies of the administrator apply.
d. If we elect arbitration, we shall pay all the administrator's filing costs and administrative fees (other than hearing fees). If you elect arbitration, filing costs and administrative fees (other than hearing fees) shall be paid in accordance with the rules of the administrator selected, or in accordance with countervailing law if contrary to the administrator's rules. We shall pay the administrator's hearing fees for one full day of arbitration hearings. Fees for hearings that exceed one day will be paid by the party requesting the hearing, unless the administrator's rules or applicable law require otherwise, or you request that we pay them and we agree to do so. Each party shall bear the expense of its own attorneys' fees, except as otherwise provided by law. If a statute gives you the right to recover any of these fees, these statutory rights shall apply in the arbitration notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein.
e. Within 30 days of a final award by the arbitrator, any party may appeal the award for reconsideration by a three-arbitrator panel selected according to the rules of the arbitrator administrator. In the event of such an appeal, any opposing party may cross-appeal within 30 days after notice of the appeal. The panel will reconsider de novo all aspects of the initial award that are appealed. Costs and conduct of any appeal shall be governed by this Arbitration Provision and the administrator's rules, in the same way as the initial arbitration proceeding. Any award by the individual arbitrator that is not subject to appeal, and any panel award on appeal, shall be final and binding, except for any appeal right under the Federal Arbitration Act ("FAA"), and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
f. We agree not to invoke our right to arbitrate an individual Claim you may bring in Small Claims Court or an equivalent court, if any, so long as the Claim is pending only in that court. NO ARBITRATION SHALL PROCEED ON A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE BASIS (INCLUDING AS PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ON BEHALF OF OTHERS), EVEN IF THE CLAIM OR CLAIMS THAT ARE THE SUBJECT OF THE ARBITRATION HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN ASSERTED (OR COULD HAVE BEEN ASSERTED) IN A COURT AS CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE ACTIONS IN A COURT. Unless consented to in writing by all parties to the arbitration, no party to the arbitration may join, consolidate, or otherwise bring claims for or on behalf of two or more individuals or unrelated corporate entities in the same arbitration unless those persons are parties to a single transaction. Unless consented to in writing by all parties to the arbitration, an award in arbitration shall determine the rights and obligations of the named parties only, and only with respect to the claims in arbitration, and shall not (a) determine the rights, obligations, or interests of anyone other than a named party, or resolve any Claim of anyone other than a named party; nor (b) make an award for the benefit of, or against, anyone other than a named party. No administrator or arbitrator shall have the power or authority to waive, modify, or fail to enforce this section 18(f), and any attempt to do so, whether by rule, policy, arbitration decision or otherwise, shall be invalid and unenforceable. Any challenge to the validity of this section 18(f) shall be determined exclusively by a court and not by the administrator or any arbitrator.
g. This Arbitration Provision is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce and shall be governed by and enforceable under the FAA. The arbitrator will apply substantive law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations. The arbitrator may award damages or other types of relief permitted by applicable substantive law, subject to the limitations set forth in this Arbitration Provision. The arbitrator will not be bound by judicial rules of procedure and evidence that would apply in a court. The arbitrator shall take steps to reasonably protect confidential information.
h. This Arbitration Provision shall survive (i) suspension, termination, revocation, closure, or amendments to this Agreement and the relationship of you and us; (ii) the bankruptcy or insolvency of any party or other person; and (iii) any transfer of any loan or Note or any other promissory note(s) which you owe, or any amounts owed on such loans or notes, to any other person or entity. If any portion of this Arbitration Provision other than section 18(f) is deemed invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portions of this Arbitration Provision shall nevertheless remain valid and in force. If an arbitration is brought on a class, representative, or collective basis, and the limitations on such proceedings in section 18(f) are finally adjudicated pursuant to the last sentence of section 18(f) to be unenforceable, then no arbitration shall be had. In no event shall any invalidation be deemed to authorize an arbitrator to determine Claims or make awards beyond those authorized in this Arbitration Provision.
THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO LITIGATE CLAIMS THROUGH A COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY, BUT WILL NOT HAVE THAT RIGHT IF ANY PARTY ELECTS ARBITRATION PURSUANT TO THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION. THE PARTIES HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY WAIVE THEIR RIGHTS TO LITIGATE SUCH CLAIMS IN A COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY UPON ELECTION OF ARBITRATION BY ANY PARTY.
NON-NEGOTIABLE PROMISSORY NOTE
Borrower name and address: ______________________________________________ $_______________
For value received, I ("Borrower") promise to pay to the order of Cross River Bank or any subsequent holder ("Lender" "you" or "your") of this Promissory Note (the "Note") the principal sum of ________________ ($_________) Dollars with interest as set forth below. I intend to be legally bound by this Note. I have read, understood, and agreed to all of the terms of this Note.
Interest. This Note bears interest during each calendar month from the date hereof until paid, at a fixed rate of ______ (%). Interest is calculated on a monthly basis upon the unpaid balance with each payment representing 1/12th of a year.
Payments. Principal and interest is to be paid during and throughout the period of ________ months in the following manner:
Payments of principal and interest in the amount of ________________ ($______) Dollars are to be made by the Borrower to the Lender commencing _____________, 20__, and on the same day of each successive month thereafter until __________, 20__, when the full amount of unpaid principal, together with unpaid accrued interest is due and payable. If any monthly payment to be made by the Borrower shall become due on a day which is not a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day. Business Day shall mean any day that both the Lender and the depository institution the Lender utilizes for funds transfers hereunder are open for business. If the monthly anniversary is on the 29th, 30th, or 31st of the month, and the following month does not have a 29th, 30th, or 31st day, the monthly payment will be due on the last day of the month in which the payment was due. The last payment might be of a slightly different amount to adjust for rounding.
All payments on this Note are to be made in immediately available lawful money of the United States. Borrower shall make all regularly scheduled monthly loan payments by either check or automatic withdrawal from Borrower’s designated account. Any fees authorized to be charged on Borrower’s loan may be collected using electronic funds transfers initiated by Lender from Borrower’s designated account. If such fees are assessed on Borrower’s account by Lender, those fees will be debited separately from Borrower’s monthly payment amount. If Borrower elects to make payments by recurring automatic withdrawal, Borrower authorizes Lender to debit Borrower's designated account by Automated Clearing House ("ACH") transfer for the amount of each payment due on each due date. Borrower may elect to make payments by personal check by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org, or by regular mail to: Peerform, Inc., 711 3rd Avenue, 6th floor, New York, NY 10017, Attention: Loan Processing Department. If Borrower elects to make payments by check, Borrower acknowledges and agrees that there will be a $15 check processing fee per payment, subject to applicable law. This authorization does not affect Borrower's obligations to pay when due all amounts payable under this Note, whether or not there are sufficient funds therefore in such accounts. The foregoing authorization is in addition to, and not in limitation of, any rights of setoff Lender may have. With regard to payments made by automatic withdrawal, Borrower has the right to stop payment of automatic withdrawals or revoke Borrower's prior authorization for automatic withdrawals by notifying Borrower's financial institution at least three (3) banking days before the scheduled date of transfer. Borrower will notify Lender of the exercise of Borrower's right to stop a payment or revoke Borrower's authorization for automatic withdrawals at least three (3) banking days before the scheduled date of transfer. All payments are to be applied first to the payment of all fees, expenses and other amounts due to Lender (excluding principal and interest), then to accrued interest, and the balance on account of outstanding principal; provided, however, that after an Event of Default (as defined below), payments will be applied to Borrower's obligations as Lender determines in his sole discretion. Borrower may elect to change Borrower’s designated payment method at any time.
Fees and Charges. A non-refundable origination fee paid by Borrower, in the amount and on the terms set forth in Borrower's Loan Agreement, will be deducted from Borrower's loan proceeds, so the loan proceeds delivered to Borrower will be less than the face amount of Borrower's loan request. Borrower acknowledges that the origination fee will be considered part of the principal of Borrower's loan and is subject to the accrual of interest. Borrower agrees to pay a fee of $15 for each ACH transfer or check that Borrower initiates or submits and that is returned or fails because of insufficient funds in Borrower's account or for any other reason. Borrower acknowledges that the bank that holds Borrower's designated account may charge a fee in addition to this fee. Each attempt to collect a payment is considered a separate transaction, so an unsuccessful payment fee will be assessed for each failed attempt. If any payment is 15 or more days late, you may charge a late fee in an amount the greater of 5% of the unpaid installment or $15. These fees may be collected using ACH transfers initiated by you from Borrower's designated account. Any such late fee assessed is immediately due and payable. Any payment received after 6:00 P.M. Eastern Standard Time (EST) on a banking day is deemed received on the next succeeding banking day.
Prepayments and Partial Payments. Borrower may make any payment early, in whole or in part, without penalty or premium at any time. Any partial prepayment is to be applied against the principal amount outstanding and does not postpone the due date of any subsequent monthly installments, unless you otherwise agree in writing. If Borrower prepays this Note in part, Borrower agrees to continue to make regularly scheduled payments until all amounts due under this Note are paid. You may accept late payments or partial payments, even though marked "paid in full", without losing any rights under this Note.
Use of Funds. Borrower certifies that Borrower is a resident of the United States and the proceeds of the loan will not be used for the purpose of purchasing or carrying any securities or to fund any illegal activity or used to purchase or carry on any (i) gambling or gaming including, without limitation, "OTB" or similar walk-in betting parlor; (ii) religious or charitable organization; (iii) disco or nightclub or other adult entertainment; (iv) the sale or display of any pornographic or obscene material or the conduct of any obscene, nude or semi-nude live performance or modeling; (v) pawn shop; (vi) drug rehabilitation clinic, halfway house or abortion or family planning clinic; (vii) church, synagogue, mosque or any other area of worship; (viii) business in which a principal has been convicted of a felony; (ix) Internet merchant; (x) apartment house; (xi) limousine or taxi service; (xii) arms/weapons dealer; (xiii) long distance provider; (xiv) art or antique dealer; (xv) lotteries or raffles; (xvi) auctions; (xvii) mailing lists; (xviii) auto rentals agency; (xix) mall kiosk; (xx) bail bond service; (xxi) massage parlor; (xxii) bar/tavern; (xxiii) modeling agency; (xxiv) check cashing institution; (xxv) network provider; (xxvi) collection agency; (xxvii) companion or escort service; (xxviii) computer hardware and software retailer; (xxix) professional billing service; (xxx) computer online service; (xxxi) resort land promotion; (xxxii) consignment store; (xxxiii) resume preparer; (xxxiv) contractor/home repair; (xxxv) sexual encounter agency; (xxxvi) cooperative discount group; (xxxvii) sports forecasting; (xxxviii) credit restoration/repair service; (xxxix) talent booking agency; (xl) deposit broker; (xli) tattoo parlor; (xlii) drug paraphernalia; (xliii) third party hotel reservation service; (xliv) embassy, consulate or ministry; (xlv) third party processor; (xlvi) employment agency; (xlvii) towing agency; (xlviii) furniture store; (xlix) travel agency; (l) gambling establishment; (li) used auto sales; (lii) health spa/club (except country clubs); (liii) vitamin and supplement sales; (liv) income tax service; (lv) water purification; (lvi) insurance agency; or (lvii) website host..
Default. Borrower will be deemed in default (each, an "Event of Default") of Borrower's obligations under this Note if Borrower: (i) fails to pay timely any amount due under this Note; (ii) files or has instituted against Borrower any bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings or makes any assignment for the benefit of creditors; (iii) dies; (iv) commits fraud or makes any material misrepresentation in this Note; or (v) fails to abide by the terms of this Note. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, you may exercise all remedies available to you under applicable law, including demand upon Borrower to immediately pay all amounts due under this Note. You reserve the right to report loan payment delinquencies of 30 days or longer to one or more consumer reporting agencies in accordance with applicable law. Borrower agrees to pay all costs of collecting any delinquent payments, including reasonable attorneys' fees, as permitted by applicable law.
Miscellaneous. This Note is not negotiable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Lender may assign this Note without notice to Borrower. Borrower may not assign this Note without the prior written consent of Lender. This Note inures to the successors, permitted assigns, heirs and representatives of Borrower and you.
Borrower hereby waives demand, notice of non-payment, protest, and all other notices or demands whatsoever, and hereby consents that without notice to and without releasing the liability of any party, the obligations evidenced by this Note may from time to time, in whole or part, be renewed, extended, modified, accelerated, compromised, settled or released by you.
Any changes to this Note must be in writing signed by Borrower and you. Notices will be mailed electronically to the addresses provided.
This Note represents the entire agreement between the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof. Neither the Borrower nor the Lender have relied on any representations not contained or referred to herein.
Controlling Law. Cross River Bank is located in the State of New Jersey and this Note has been executed and delivered in the State of New Jersey and is deemed a contract made under such state's law. The provisions of this Note will be governed by federal laws and the laws of the State of New Jersey to the extent not preempted, without regard to any principle of conflicts of law. The unenforceability of any provision of this Note shall not affect the enforceability or validity of any other provision of this Note.
