**We will authorize and pay overdrafts for checks and other transactions made using your account number and for automatic bill payments. We will not authorize and pay overdrafts for ATM transactions and everyday debit card transactions without your consent. We pay overdrafts at our discretion and may not pay under certain circumstances, such as if the account is not in good standing, regular deposits are not made, or overdrafts are excessive.
