1 We may report information about the status and payment of your account to credit bureaus and other creditors. East West Bank will report this information using the available personal identifying information you have provided to us or provide to us at a later date. You can learn more about how we report Credit in your Secured Visa® Classic Credit Card Agreement.

2 East West Bank does not charge a fee for you to conduct transactions in currencies other than U.S. dollars, although transactions conducted in a foreign currency are converted to U.S. dollars by Visa®.  For more information about how this occurs please refer to your Secured Visa® Classic Credit Card Agreement.

3 Funds equal to your chosen credit limit must be deposited into your primary checking account and pledged to East West Bank as a security deposit before your application can be processed.  If your credit application is denied or withdrawn before approval, the security deposit will be released within three business days.  If your credit application is approved, the secured deposit will not be available for your use until the card is closed and the security deposit is released by the Bank.  Please refer to the Secured Visa® Classic Credit Card Agreement and Terms and Conditions for additional details.
