Secure Trade Independent Companies agreement

The ​STIC®​ ​​is an association of independent companies formed for the express purpose of protecting trade currency. This entity protects you against the loss of your cash and trade dollars if a ​STIC®​

trade company fails or experiences a catastrophic loss of data.

II.STIC®​ ​protects your trade and cash accounts dollar-for-dollar, trade dollar plus any transaction fee accrued or due to the trade member, through the date of default, up to at least $250,000 Trade and $25,000 cash balance.

*​For example, if a person a trade balance was $195,000 and they had $19,500 in transaction fees in their account, the full $19,500 would be guaranteed in their cash balance account, and $195.000 in their trade account.

III. In the event of a trade company’s insolvency, the ​STIC®​ ​responds in two capacities. First, as the guarantor of the data, the ​STIC®​ ​transfers trade fees associated with covered trade transactions to members up to the approved limit. ​STIC®​ ​will move the CBA and trade portion within 7-10 days after a trade company

closing or data breach, by providing each trade member with a new account at the nearest ​STIC®​ ​covered trade company in an amount equal to the covered balance of their barter and cash account at the failed trade company. ​STIC®​ ​assumes no responsibility past the original $250,000 of trade deposits and $25,000 in CBA balance.
