I agree that my Remittance Application is subject to the conditions set forth below:

All information on the Remittance Application, as applicable, must be completed, including my designation of any intermediary bank. My completion of the Remittance Application for a funds transfer shall constitute a payment order instructing Bank to execute or pay the order, subject to Bank's acceptance. The Bank may reject my order if the information is incomplete or unclear. Any error in the information provided by me, including misidentification of the beneficiary, incorrect or inconsistent account name and numbers, and misspelling, is my responsibility.

I understand that this remittance application will be subject to the verification of my identity and verification of the identity of the beneficiary.

I understand that if the Beneficiary's Bank is instructed to pay in a currency other than its local currency, payment will normally be made by Beneficiary's Bank at its rate of exchange on the date of its payment. I shall comply with all local currency restrictions and any other local laws governing the transaction.

I agree to be bound by the rules of all funds transfer systems and communications systems in which Bank participates, such as Fedwire and S.W.I.F.T in connection with the funds transfer. Bank may use whatever funds transfer systems and methods of payments are appropriate in its judgment in executing any payment order accepted by the Bank. I agree that Bank may rely upon the identifying number (e.g. Fedwire number or account number) of any person or entity as instructed in the Remittance Application, be it Intermediary Bank, Beneficiary's Bank or Beneficiary, even if it identifies a person or entity different from that identified by name. Also, Beneficiary's Bank in the payment order may make payment on the basis of the identifying number even though it identifies a person different from the named Beneficiary .I shall be responsible for the consequences of any inconsistency between the name and identifying number of any such person or entity as set forth in the Remittance Application and shall be liable for any loss, liability, expense or damage, including attorney's fees and litigation expenses, Bank may incur as a result of, or in any way connected with, such inconsistency.

The Bank's liability in connection with any payment order shall be limited to remittance amount and fee only. To the extent permitted by law, the Bank shall not be liable for events or circumstances beyond your reasonable control or for indirect, special or consequential damages.

I agree that within sixty days after my funds transfer has been executed, I will notify the Bank of any error, delays or other problems related to my payment order. In the event that it is determined my funds transfer is delayed or erroneously executed by the Bank, the Bank is responsible for paying or refunding such amounts. However, if I fail to notify us within one year from the funds transfer date, my claim may be restricted under applicable law.


The Customer may direct Woori America Bank to transfer funds from any of Customer's accounts at Woori America Bank to an account at another financial institution, other than a Banking or to an account at another financial institution located outside the United States, in accordance with the terms and conditions stated in this Agreement. Woori America Bank will accept Funds Transfer Requests during the normal business hours of Woori America Bank, which hours may be changed from time to time by Woori America Bank in its sole direction.


Woori America Bank will be under no obligation to honor, either in whole or in part, any Funds Transfer Request: (a) which exceeds the Customer's collected available balance in the Customer's account from which the Customer wishes to transfer funds; (b) which is not in accordance with any other written agreements between the Customer and Woori America Bank; (c) which is not in accordance with the current published Depository Agreement of Woori America Bank; (d) which is not in accordance with this Agreement.


Woori America Bank will execute any properly authorized Funds Transfer Requests, if accepted, on the date transmitted under the Program, provided such requests are initiated through the Program before 4:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, or such other cutoff time as Woori America Bank may hereafter establish ("Cutoff Time"), on a business day for Woori America Bank, the Funds Transfer System and the receiving financial institution. "Funds Transfer System" for the purpose of this Agreement will mean the wire transfer network through which a Funds Transfer Request will be transmitted to the receiving financial institution. Funds Transfer Requests initiated after the Cutoff Time will be executed on the next business day for Woori America Bank, the Funds Transfer System, and the receiving financial institution.


Upon receipt of any Funds Transfer Requests initiated under the Program, the Customer authorizes Woori America Bank to charge the Customer's accounts in the amount of the Funds Transfer Request.


If the Customer requests, Woori America Bank will endeavor to trace any Internet (Online) Wire Transfer Request executed by Woori America Bank on behalf of the Customer in order to verify that the beneficiary received the transferred funds. Inn order to perform the trace, the Customer will provide Woori America Bank with such information as Woori America Bank may request, including the date and reference number of the Funds Transfer Request.


The Customer will provide to Woori America Bank any information Woori America Bank may reasonably request in connection with any Funds Transfer Request and the performance of this Agreement. Failure to provide such information within a reasonable time after requested by Woori America Bank will relieve Woori America Bank from any liability or loss which might arise by reason of failure to provide such information.
