Welcome to Your Swell Credit Account1. General Information.
Your Account can be accessed as outlined in this Agreement. Your Account may only be used for personal, family, or household purposes. Your Account may not be used for illegal purposes, and it may not be used for internet gambling or marijuana purchases, even if legal. You are responsible for paying all amounts outstanding on your Account, including any fees and charges we impose.2. Credit Limit.
An approved line of credit in the amount stated in your Account Opening Disclosures (“Credit Limit”) is established for your Account once you have received qualifying direct deposits totaling $500 or more in your Swell Cash Account with us within the period of time described below. A qualifying direct deposit is a direct deposit to your Cash Account from an employer, government agency, or other similar income source as determined by us (“Qualifying Direct Deposit”). Until we receive your first Qualifying Direct Deposit(s) totaling $500 or more in a calendar month within the designated period of time (the “Initial Deposit Calculation Period”), your credit limit is the Initial Credit Limit amount stated in your Account Opening Disclosures (“Initial Credit Limit”). Once you qualify for your Credit Limit by receiving Qualifying Direct Deposits totaling $500 within the Initial Deposit Calculation Period, your Credit Limit will be available to you provided you continue to receive $500 in Qualifying Direct Deposits calculated daily on a rolling 40-day basis (the “Periodic Deposit Calculation Period”).
Important: The Initial Deposit Calculation Period begins on the date on which you open your Account and ends on the last day of the second calendar month following the month in which you open your Account. If you do not set up Qualifying Direct Deposit(s) totaling $500 or more in a calendar month by the end of the Initial Deposit Calculation Period, your Initial Credit Limit will become your actual Credit Limit, notwithstanding what you may have been approved for at Account opening. For example, if you open your Account in April, and you do not have Qualifying Direct Deposit(s) of at least $500 in May and at least $500 in June, or at least $500 in June, then as of July 1, your Initial Credit Limit will become your Credit Limit.
After the conclusion of the Initial Deposit Calculation Period, calculations of Qualifying Direct Deposit(s) will be performed daily over the Periodic Deposit Calculation Period to determine if you received a total of $500 in Qualifying Direct Deposits during that period of time. We will use the transaction descriptions and our discretion to determine if a direct deposit is a Qualifying Direct Deposit. If in a particular Periodic Deposit Calculation Period you did not receive $500 in Qualifying Direct Deposits as determined by us, your Credit Limit will not change, but we reserve the right to freeze your ability to request Advances, as defined in Section 3 below. If we exercise our right to freeze Advances due to a lack of Qualifying Direct Deposits, we will monitor your direct deposits and will reinstate your ability to request Advances once you again start receiving at least $500 in Qualifying Direct Deposits in a Periodic Deposit Calculation Period.
Your Credit Limit (or Initial Credit Limit, if applicable) is the maximum principal amount of credit that you can have outstanding on your Account at any time. You agree not to make an Advance request that would cause your Account balance to exceed the Credit Limit (or Initial Credit Limit, if applicable). At our sole discretion, we may choose to approve or deny an Advance request that would cause the Account to exceed the Credit Limit (or Initial Credit Limit, if applicable). If the Account’s principal balance exceeds the Credit Limit (or Initial Credit Limit, if applicable) at any time you shall immediately pay us the excess amount, or at our discretion we may include the excess amount as part of your next minimum payment amount. We may increase or decrease the Credit Limit at any time, for any reason, as permitted by law.
Using Your Account3. Advances.
Subject to the terms of this Agreement, we will make advances of funds to you upon your request (“Advances”). Advances include any amounts extended as Overdraft Advances (see Section 14, Section 15, and Section 16). You may request Advances by using the Swell Mobile App to request a transfer of funds to your Cash Account. Requesting funds be transferred to your Cash Account is the only way to receive an Advance other than Overdraft Advances (see Section 14, Section 15, and Section 16).
Interest Charges4. Interest.
We will charge interest on your Account using a daily periodic rate. The daily periodic rate is the annual percentage rate divided by 365 (“Daily Periodic Rate”). The Daily Periodic Rate is multiplied against the outstanding daily principal balance to determine the daily accrued interest as explained in Section 5. Refer to the Account Opening Disclosures for the annual percentage rate for your Account.5. How We Will Calculate Your Balance and Interest Charge.
For each day in the billing cycle, we calculate your outstanding principal balance at the end of the day by adding to the existing outstanding principal balance any new Advances and deducting payments and credits to get the daily principal balance (the “Daily Balance”). The Daily Periodic Rate is then multiplied against the Daily Balance to determine the daily accrued interest. The daily accrued interest amount is then added to the outstanding principal balance, plus any other accrued fees and charges, to get the daily total account balance.
Making Payments6. Promise to Pay and General Payment Instructions; Right of Setoff.
You agree to pay interest on the unpaid principal balance of your Account at the Daily Periodic Rate, together with fees and charges, and to pay the minimum payment due (“Required Minimum Payment”) on your Account, in accordance with this Agreement. You agree to pay us such amounts in the U.S. currency denominations. We will deliver a periodic billing statement to you as of the closing date of your billing cycle. Advances, payments and adjustments made since the closing date on your previous periodic billing statement will appear on your next periodic billing statement. You may pay your entire Account balance at any time. Payment can be made from your Cash Account. Payment also can be made by debit card and ACH from an external bank account. You can authorize preauthorized recurring payments or individual payments as explained below under Making Payments in Section 11.
In addition, you grant us a right of setoff in your Cash Account to secure all amounts you owe us under this Agreement. If your Required Minimum Payment is 15 or more days late, you authorize us to take the Required Minimum Payment from your Cash Account. This right of setoff does not apply to your Cash Account if prohibited by law. You agree to hold us harmless from any claim arising as a result of our exercise of our right of setoff.
7. Periodic Billing Statements.
We will deliver to you a periodic billing statement at least fourteen (14) days before your payment is due. The periodic billing statement will be delivered to you electronically via and accessible in the Swell Mobile App. The periodic billing statement will show your Account balance (“New Balance”), your Required Minimum Payment and other Account information. Unless you notify us of a billing error as provided below under Your Billing Rights, you accept your periodic billing statement as an accurate statement of your Account. For each billing cycle, you agree to make at least the Required Minimum Payment shown on your periodic billing statement by the indicated due date (“Payment Due Date”). If a Payment Due Date is scheduled for a Sunday, legal holiday, or any other date on which we are not open for business, then we will credit any payment received on our next business day as if it were received on the scheduled Payment Due Date. You may pay more frequently, pay the unpaid balance in whole or in part, or pay your New Balance in full at any time without a prepayment penalty. If you make extra payments or larger payments in any billing cycle, you will still be required to make at least the Required Minimum Payment each billing cycle, unless you have paid your entire New Balance in full. If you make only the Required Minimum Payment each billing cycle, you will pay more in interest and it will take longer to pay off your balance.
8. Required Minimum Payment.
If your New Balance is $30 or more, your Required Minimum Payment will be an amount equal to the greater of (i) 1.75% of the outstanding principal balance of your Account plus accrued interest and any outstanding fees or charges and (ii) $30. If your New Balance is less than $30, your Required Minimum Payment will be your New Balance. Your Required Minimum Payment for a billing cycle may include any past due amounts from prior billing cycles and any amount outstanding under this Agreement in excess of your Credit Limit (or Initial Credit Limit, if applicable). If you fail to make your Required Minimum Payment for each billing cycle, we may suspend your ability to request Advances.
9. Paying Interest.
We will begin charging interest on Advances on the date funds are disbursed to you. There is no time period during which you can avoid paying interest.
10. Application of Payments.
Payments are applied in the following order: (i) past due interest, (ii) past due fees, (iii) past due principal, (iv) current interest due and billed, (v) current fees due and billed, (vi) current principal due and billed, (vii) current interest accrued and unbilled, and (vii) current principal unbilled.11. Making Payments
- Payments Initiated Outside of Swell. Payment also may be made by debit card and ACH from an external bank account. If you initiate a payment to us through another institution or third party we will not post the payment to your Account until we receive the funds associated with the payment.
- Payments using the Swell Mobile App. Payments can be made from your Cash Account. When you schedule a payment from your Cash Account through the Swell Mobile App before the 11:59 p.m. ET in the Swell Mobile App, we consider the payment received by us on the date that the payment is scheduled
- Payment Reversals. If a payment is reversed for any reason, you may be charged a late payment fee as described in Section 18.
- No Payments by Check. We do not accept payments by paper check and reserve the right to destroy any personal checks or other unapproved payment instruments we receive.
- Payments Initiated Outside of Swell. Payment also may be made by debit card and ACH from an external bank account. If you initiate a payment to us through another institution or third party we will not post the payment to your Account until we receive the funds associated with the payment.
How We Apply Your Payments12. Posting Payments to Your Account.
As long as we receive your Required Minimum Payment due by our cut off times of 5 p.m. E.T. (11:59 p.m. E.T. for payments made from your Cash Account), you will not be charged a late payment fee. As long as your payment conforms to the requirements set forth on the periodic billing statement, we will credit your payment on the date it is received, even though there may be delays in posting the payment to your Account. We will adjust any interest accrual, if applicable, to the date the payment was received. For payments not made from the Cash Account, you may not be able to re-borrow the principal portion of the payment amount for up to 10 business days. This allows time to ensure your payment has been collected from the account from which it was drawn.13. Irregular Payments.
We reserve the right not to accept checks and money orders or partial payments marked “payment in full.” If we accept such payments, we will not lose any rights under this Agreement.
Using Your Account as Overdraft Protection for your Cash Account
Note: Automated Swell Credit Overdraft protection functionality as described in Section 14, Section 15, and Section 16 likely will not be available until after January 1, 2023. Until such time as automated Swell Credit Overdraft functionality (as described in the next three sections) is enabled, if you do not have sufficient funds in your Cash Account to cover a particular transaction, and your Account is in good standing with availability, you can request an Advance (the proceeds of which will be automatically transferred to your Cash Account) and use the proceeds of such Advance to cover the subject Cash Account transaction.14. Swell Credit Overdraft Protection.
You may choose to enroll in Swell Credit Overdraft, a form of overdraft protection (“Swell Credit Overdraft”), from your linked Cash Account to this Account to cover eligible transactions in an amount up to $100 (or such higher or lower amount as we determine from time to time in our discretion (the “Overdraft Advance Limit”)). The person who accepts this Agreement and activates this Account as Borrower must also be identified as the owner of the Cash Account. You may enroll in Swell Credit Overdraft in the Swell Mobile App. Once you enroll, Swell Credit Overdraft is available immediately. Swell Credit Overdraft applies only to the eligible transactions described in Section 15. Swell Credit Overdraft is not available (x) if we have frozen your ability to request Advances, (y) if your available credit is $0.00 or is otherwise less than the amount by which the eligible transaction would overdraw your Cash Account, or (z) if the amount of the transaction when added to the amount of Overdraft Advances outstanding at the time of such transaction would exceed the Overdraft Advance Limit.15. Overdraft Advances.
Subject to the terms of this Agreement, we will make an overdraft advance to you if an eligible transaction posted to your Cash Account exceeds the amount of funds in your Cash Account that is available for withdrawal (“Overdraft Advance”). By enrolling in Swell Credit Overdraft in the Swell Mobile App, you request that these Overdraft Advances be made and agree that the amount of these Overdraft Advances be added to your Cash Account. The following transactions from your Cash Account are eligible for overdraft protection, and you agree that you are responsible for Overdraft Advances made by us to cover the following transactions: (i) debit card transactions (including PIN and signature transactions), (ii) pre-authorized ACH transactions (including transactions scheduled using Swell BillPay), and (iii) cash withdrawals at ATMs. Overdraft Protection does not apply to other transactions. The amount of any Overdraft Advances will be added to your Account balance and will be covered by this Agreement as though you had requested the advance resulting in the Overdraft Advance. The Overdraft Advance for a particular transaction will equal the amount needed to cover the unpaid amount of such transaction (but subject to the limitations described in Section 14). We will deposit the Overdraft Advance in your Cash Account.
16. Cancelling Swell Credit Overdraft Protection.
You may cancel your enrollment in Swell Credit Overdraft at any time in the Swell Mobile App. We may cancel your Swell Credit Overdraft enrollment and stop making Overdraft Advances at any time.
17. Maintaining Your Cash Account.
You agree to maintain your Cash Account according to the terms and conditions of that deposit account agreement, in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations, without fraud, and in such manner so as to not cause us to close your Cash Account. If you fail to properly maintain your Cash Account, or your Cash Account is closed for any reason, we may unlink your Cash Account, or close your Credit Account to new Advances and may cancel your Credit Account as described in this Agreement.
You agree to pay the following fees, which we may assess against your Account:
- Late Payment Fee. If we do not receive at least the Required Minimum Payment within ten (10) days after the Payment Due Date, you agree to pay us a late payment fee in the amount disclosed in the Account Opening Disclosures.
- Copy Fee. A copy fee in the amount of $10 for each paper copy of a periodic billing statement we provide at your request.
19. Default and Acceleration.
Closing Your Account
You are in default on the Account if: (1) you do not make at least the Required Minimum Payment when it is due, (2) you have exceeded your Credit Limit (or Initial Credit Limit, if applicable), (3) you provide us with false, misleading, or fraudulent information, (4) you fail to comply with any term of the Agreement, (5) you are bankrupt or insolvency proceedings are filed against you, (6) we believe you may be unwilling or unable to pay your debts on time, (7) you die or are legally declared incompetent or incapacitated, or (8) we become aware that you are using your Account for illegal or fraudulent purposes.
If you are in default, we can stop all Advances and/or declare the full unpaid balance on your Account immediately due and payable as permitted by law. We may also take any other collection action allowed by applicable law. If we need to hire an attorney to collect any part of your Account and applicable law permits us to charge you for attorneys’ fees, you agree to pay us our reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in collecting your Account, subject to any limits under applicable law.20. Freezing Advances; Account Cancellation.
If there is an outstanding balance on your Account, it may not be closed by you, however, you may close the Account to new Advances at any time by giving us written notice as provided in the Swell Mobile App. See Section 21 regarding Stopping New Advances.
In addition to our other rights under this Agreement, we may freeze your ability to request Advances and/or stop honoring requests for Advances at any time. We also may cancel your Account at any time in our discretion. In deciding whether or not to freeze Advances and/or cancel your Account, we may, but are not required, to make an annual (or more frequent) credit review on your Account.
The closing or cancellation of your Account for whatever reason (including, for example, your moving to a state in which we do not offer Accounts) will not affect obligations arising prior to such closing or cancellation and the terms of this Agreement will continue to apply until the unpaid balance due on your Account is paid in full.21. Stopping New Advances.
You may request the Bank not to permit any additional Advances under the Account. We may continue to honor Advances until we have had reasonable time to act upon your request. You agree that we do not guarantee that every request for an Advance will be rejected after your request. You will hold us harmless from any claim by any party for ceasing to honor requests for Advances. You will resolve any such claims and will reimburse us for all expenses that we incur in defending any actions or claims brought against us, including reasonable attorneys’ fee, whether or not a lawsuit is commenced, as permitted by law.

We reserve the right to block Prohibited Activity and to cause non-approval of any authorization as a request of such use. You assume all responsibility and liability for all losses, costs and expenses you incur as a result of Prohibited Activity.

If you do not opt out of arbitration and become involved in a Dispute that is arbitrated, you and CPB agree that if the arbitrator for such proceeding fails or refuses to enforce the waiver of class-wide arbitration, then the Dispute will proceed solely in a United States federal court situated in the state of Hawaii and will be decided by a judge sitting without a jury, under applicable court rules and procedures and may be enforced by such United States federal court through any measures or reciprocity provisions available. The validity, effect and enforceability of each of the waivers set forth in Section 36, Section 37, and Section 39 is to be determined solely by a United States federal court situated in the state of Hawaii, and not by an arbitrator. For any proceeding contemplated by the preceding sentences, you and CPB irrevocably consent to the sole jurisdiction of United States federal courts in the state of Hawaii, regardless of whether such venue is an inconvenient forum.
38. Small Claims Court; Location of In-Person Arbitration Hearing.
You and CPB agree that CPB will not demand arbitration of any suit to resolve a Dispute you bring on your own behalf in small claims court; provided, however if the Dispute is transferred, removed, or appealed to a different court, it shall be subject to arbitration. Any party may demand arbitration of any appealed small claims decision. For any in-person arbitration hearing arising out of or related to (i) your Application, (ii) this Swell Credit Agreement, or (iii) the Swell Credit Account, such arbitration hearing must be at a place reasonably convenient to you (no more than thirty miles from your residence), unless you agree otherwise, and that disputes subject to arbitration may also be resolved in writing or by conference call.
39. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
PLEASE READ THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT CAREFULLY.
WHAT IS ARBITRATION? Arbitration is an alternative to court. In arbitration, a third-party arbitrator resolves Disputes in a hearing. Arbitration proceedings are private and usually are less formal, faster, and less costly than a lawsuit. Pre-hearing fact finding and discovery in arbitration proceedings sometimes is limited. Appeals are limited, and courts rarely overturn arbitration awards. Furthermore, for Disputes being resolved in an arbitration proceeding under the Swell Credit Agreement:
(a) a jury will not decide Disputes;
(b) a court will not decide Disputes;
(c) no individual will serve as a private attorney general or in a representative capacity;
(d) a Dispute you have will not be joined or permitted to be joined with a dispute by or involving other consumers; and
(e) no person will be a class member, and no arbitration will be a class action or class arbitration.
AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE. You and CPB agree that any Dispute will be resolved by arbitration; provided, however, that small claims court proceedings are permitted by Section 38 above. You and CPB acknowledge and agree that this Arbitration Agreement requires you and CPB to do, and you and CPB agreed to all of the following:
CPB and you agree that any party may arbitrate or demand arbitration of any Dispute unless you timely opt out of this Arbitration Agreement (as provided below) or the law does not allow it.
WHAT DISPUTES ARE NOT SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION? CPB will not demand arbitration of any suit to resolve a Dispute you bring on your own behalf in small claims court (as permitted by Section 38); provided, however if the Dispute is transferred, removed or appealed to a different court, it shall be subject to arbitration. The validity, effect and enforceability of each of the waivers set forth in Section 36, Section 37, and this Section 39 is to be determined solely by a United States federal court situated in the state of Hawaii, and not by an arbitrator.
WHO DOES THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT COVER? This Arbitration Agreement covers CPB and you. This Arbitration Agreement also applies if a Dispute is brought against one or more Related Parties (as defined in the Definitions section above). Related Parties benefit from this Arbitration Agreement. You may not compel a Related Party to arbitration, but a Related Party may compel you to arbitrate each and every Dispute that is covered by this Arbitration Agreement.
WHO WILL BE THE ARBITRATOR? Regardless of who initiates the arbitration, the parties may agree to select a local individual arbitrator who is an attorney, retired judge or arbitrator registered and in good standing with an arbitration association and arbitrate pursuant to the arbitrator’s rules. If a local individual arbitrator is not selected by mutual agreement, the arbitration may be administered by the American Arbitration Association (1-800-778-7879) http://www.adr.org (“AAA”) or JAMS (1-800-352-5267) http://www.jamsadr.com (“JAMS”).
WHAT LAW APPLIES TO THE ARBITRATION AND THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT? The Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs this Arbitration Agreement. The arbitrator must apply law consistent with the FAA. The arbitrator must honor statutes of limitation and privilege rights. Constitutional standards that apply in court proceedings govern punitive damage awards. The arbitrator may decide, with or without a hearing, any motion that is substantially similar to a motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim or a motion for summary judgment.
WHAT RULES APPLY TO THE ARBITRATION? If the parties use an arbitration company such as AAA or JAMS, then that company’s consumer arbitration rules will apply. If the parties chose an individual arbitrator, then such arbitrator will follow the JAMS consumer arbitration rules, unless the parties mutually agree to an alternative set of rules. In any case, the arbitrator will not apply any state or federal rules of civil procedure or evidence. Arbitration rules that conflict with this Arbitration Agreement do not apply. No arbitration may be held without CPB’s consent by an arbitration company or arbitrator that would allow class arbitration of a Dispute.
HOW IS ARBITRATION STARTED? If you or CPB are the party that desires to initiative a lawsuit or arbitration, before starting such lawsuit or arbitration, the party that desires to initiate a lawsuit or arbitration must give a Dispute Notice as Section 25 above requires. If you are the Claimant (as defined in Section 25 above), you or your attorney must sign the Dispute Notice and include in the Dispute Notice your Account Number and a contact number for you or your attorney. Collections letters from CPB and its authorized servicing representatives are Dispute Notices. Dispute Notices must be sent to CPB at the Bank Notice Address and to you at the Borrower Notice Address. Each Dispute Notice (other than collections letters from CPB and its authorized servicing representatives) must give at least 30 days to settle the Dispute. If the parties do not settle the Dispute within the 30-day period, Claimant may start arbitration. Any party to a Dispute (including you, CPB, Swell, and a Related Party) may start the arbitration process, as follows:
1. Send written notice of the intent to arbitrate, including a description of the Dispute and the type and amount of relief requested. This notice should be sent even if a lawsuit has been filed. This notice should be sent by Certified Mail, Return Receipt Requested. Recipients of such notices have twenty (20) days from receipt to respond in a writing delivered by Certified Mail, Return Receipt Requested. Notices to you must be sent to the Borrower Notice Address, and notices to CPB must be sent to the Bank Notice Address.
2. If the party demanding arbitration desires to use a local individual arbitrator, then such selection must be communicated in writing to the other parties to the arbitration and is subject to the agreement of such other parties. If all parties to the arbitration do not agree to the same local individual arbitrator, or if the party demanding arbitration desires to use an arbitration company (such as AAA or JAMS), then such party must file the necessary paperwork with the arbitration company to commence the arbitration.
3. If the party demanding arbitration fails to properly notify the other parties of the desired local individual arbitrator or arbitration company or fails to file necessary paperwork with an arbitration company, then any other party to the arbitration has the right to select the arbitration company.
If one party sues or threatens to sue other than by bringing a case in small claims court as permitted by Section 38 above, the other party can demand arbitration. This demand can be made in court papers. It can be made if a party sues on an individual basis and then tries to pursue a class action. Once an arbitration demand is made, no suit can be brought and any current suit must stop (other than suits permitted to be brought in small claims court). Any party may sue or continue with a suit if the other party does not demand arbitration.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ARBITRATION COSTS? At your request CBP will pay the filing fee and any costs or fees charged by the arbitrator regardless of which party initiates the arbitration. Except where otherwise provided by the FAA or except as may be required by Hawaii law (which governs the Swell Credit Account), each party will be responsible for its own attorneys’ fees and other expenses. Unless prohibited by the FAA or Hawaii law (which governs the Swell Credit Account), the arbitrator may award fees, costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees to the party who substantially prevails in the arbitration.
WHAT REMEDIES MAY THE ARBITRATOR AWARD? The arbitrator has the ability to award to the prevailing party all remedies available under applicable law, whether at law or in equity. If allowed by applicable law, the arbitrator may award statutory damages and/or reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses. The arbitrator will make written findings. The award of the arbitrator must be supported by substantial evidence and must be consistent with this Arbitration Agreement and applicable law.
JUDICIAL REVIEW OF ARBITRATOR AWARD. The arbitrator’s award may be filed with a United States federal court situated in Hawaii. If the arbitration award is not supported by substantial evidence or is inconsistent with this Arbitration Agreement or applicable law, the arbitration award may be set aside by the court upon judicial review.
HOW DOES THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT IMPACT CLASS ACTIONS AND MASS ACTIONS? You and CPB agree that the arbitrator has no authority to conduct class-wide proceedings or multiple arbitrations or proceedings as a “mass action” and will be restricted to resolving the individual Disputes between the parties. If the arbitrator fails or refuses to enforce the waiver of class-wide arbitration or the waiver of mass actions, you and CPB agree that the Dispute will proceed solely in a United States federal court situated in the state of Hawaii and will be decided by a judge sitting without a jury, under applicable court rules and procedures and may be enforced by such United States federal court through any measures or reciprocity provisions available. The validity, effect and enforceability of this waiver of class action lawsuit and class-wide and mass action arbitration is to be determined solely by a United States federal court situated in the state of Hawaii, and not by the arbitrator. You irrevocably consent to the sole jurisdiction of United States federal courts in the state of Hawaii for purposes of this Arbitration Agreement, regardless of whether such venue is an inconvenient forum for you.
SURVIVAL. This Arbitration Agreement will survive and remain in force following (i) the closure, cancellation, payment in full, charge-off, transfer, sale, or assignment of the Swell Credit Account, this Swell Credit Agreement, or any amounts owing under this Agreement or on the Account, and (ii) the bankruptcy of you, CPB, Swell, any Related Party, and any other party associated with the Account or this Agreement. You can opt out of this Arbitration Agreement as described below.
RIGHT TO OPT-OUT. You have a right to opt out of resolving Disputes under this Arbitration Agreement. In order to effectively opt out of this Arbitration Agreement for your Account, you must take all of the following steps within sixty (60) days of the date on which you activated the Account (the “Opt-Out Deadline”):

2. Ensure that your opt-out notice is received by us within the opt-out deadline.
Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement will not affect any other provision of the Swell Credit Agreement. If you opt out, your opting out will apply only to this Swell Credit Agreement and does not apply to any other contractual agreement or arrangement between you and CPB. IF YOU OPT OUT, ANY DISPUTES WILL STILL BE GOVERNED BY HAWAII LAW AND APPLICABLE FEDERAL LAW.
If you do not complete the opt-out process described above within the Opt-Out Deadline, then this Arbitration Agreement will remain in full force and effect as of the date on which you opened your Account.
Military Covered Borrowers40. Military Lending Act Matters.
The Military Lending Act provides protections for certain members of the Armed Forces and their dependents. “Covered Borrower” means a consumer who, at the time the consumer becomes obligated on a consumer credit transaction or establishes an account for consumer credit, is a Covered Member or a dependent of a Covered Member. “Covered Member” means a member of the armed forces who is serving on (i) Active duty pursuant to title 10, title 14, or title 32, United States Code, under a call or order that does not specify a period of 30 days or fewer; or (ii) Active Guard and Reserve duty, as that term is defined in 10 U.S.C. §101(d)(6).
If you are a Covered Borrower, (i) the Arbitration Agreement, (ii) any waiver of right to legal recourse under any state or federal law and (iii) any other provision in this Agreement that is not enforceable against you under the Military Lending Act does not apply to you so long as you are a Covered Borrower. If you would like more information about whether you are a Covered Borrower and whether the provisions related to Covered Borrowers apply to you, call Swell Member Services at 1-855-808-5220, or email email@example.com.

While we investigate whether or not there has been an error:
- We cannot try to collect the amount in question, or report you as delinquent on that amount.
- The charge in question may remain on your periodic billing statement, and we may continue to charge you interest on that amount.
- While you do not have to pay the amount in question, you are responsible for the remainder of your balance.
- We can apply any unpaid amount against your credit limit.
