§ 15. Notices to customers of basic safety precautions. The issuer of an access device shall furnish a customer receiving the device with a notice of basic safety precautions that the customer should employ while using an automated teller machine. This information shall be furnished by personally delivering or by mailing the information to each customer whose mailing address for the account to which the access device relates is in the State of Illinois. This information shall be furnished with respect to access devices issued on or after July 1, 1997, at or before the time the customer is furnished with his or her access device. With respect to a customer to whom an access device has been issued prior to July 1, 1997, the information shall be delivered on or before July 1, 1998. Only one notice need be furnished per household, and if access devices are furnished to more than one customer for a single account or set of accounts or on the basis of a single application or other request for access devices, only a single notice need be furnished in satisfaction of the notification responsibilities as to those customers. The information may be included with other disclosures related to the access device furnished to the customer, such as with any initial or periodic disclosure statement furnished pursuant to the federal Electronic Fund Transfer Act. The issuer of an access device shall be deemed to be in compliance with the notice requirement of this Section if the issuer advises the customer:
(1) to be aware of the customer's surroundings when using an automated teller machine, particularly during the hours of darkness;
(2) to be accompanied by another person when using an automated teller machine during the hours of darkness;
(3) to refrain from displaying cash, to place cash in a pocket as soon as a transaction is completed, and to count cash in the safety of a locked enclosure such as a car or home;
(4) to use another automated teller machine or return at a later time if anything suspicious is noticed when using or considering using an automated teller machine; and
(5) to report all crimes immediately to the operator of the automated teller machine or to local law enforcement officials.
