You may not make electronic transfers to or from the Collateral Account. The Collateral Account is maintained by First Guaranty Bank. The owners of the Collateral Account are identical to the Cardholders on the Secured Credit Card account. Your Collateral Account will be opened when your security deposit is received. You agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of the security agreement.
You will receive a credit card agreement with your card(s). The credit card agreement becomes effective and you agree to its terms by either using your Secured Card account or by not closing your secured card account.
