segregated from other books and records of COMPANY and otherwise in such a manner as to facilitate their inspection by and delivery to BANK, if so requested. In the event that the COMPANY becomes aware that the security of the TRANSACTION DOCUMENTS is breached or COMPANY learns of the unauthorized use of information contained in the TRANSACTION DOCUMENTS, then COMPANY shall promptly notify BANK of such breach or unauthorized use so that BANK shall be able to take any and all appropriate and necessary action.

Section 4, Company's Services, (e), (v) shall be amended to read in its entirety as follows:

(v) During the term of this Agreement and at all times thereafter, BANK and banking agencies with regulatory authority over BANK including, but not limited to the FDIC and the Kentucky Department of Financial Institutions shall have reasonable access to COMPANY stores, to the books and records of COMPANY (to the extent that such books and records pertain to the TRANSACTIONS), to the officers, employees and accountants of COMPANY, and to copies of TRANSACTION DOCUMENTS, all for the purpose of ensuring that COMPANY is carrying out BANK POLICIES and is otherwise complying fully with its obligations under this Agreement as well as all applicable laws and regulations. Such access shall include permission to maintain employees on the premises of COMPANY or offices of COMPANY where any information requested may be located during regular business hours in order to audit COMPANY's services contemplated by this Agreement and to conduct reasonable on-site transaction testing and other reasonable operational reviews.

Section 4, Company's Services, (e), (viii) shall be added to the Marketing Agreement and shall read as follows:

COMPANY will collect the customer identification ("CIP") information that BANK notifies COMPANY is required by the USA Patriot Act Section 326 and, to the extent and in the manner o instructed by BANK, provide customers with adequate notice of the CIP requirements prior to opening an account. CIP information includes name, physical address, date of birth, and taxpayer identification number or other un-expired government-issued photo identification number that allows COMPANY to form a reasonable belief of (i.e., verify) the CUSTOMER's true identity. Verification constitutes a logical comparison of the photo ID's location of issuance, date of issuance, expiration date and reference number format to the CUSTOMER's characteristics (e.g. age, photo match, discrepancies in address, etc.), as well as the standard format for the locale and/or state where the transaction is taking place. COMPANY will maintain all records containing the required CIP information along with specific reference to the type of unexpired government-issued photo identification that the customer presents, including the location of issuance, date of issuance, expiration date and reference number. The records must be maintained for a period of 5 years from the date the CUSTOMER's account being closed, and be retrievable within 72 hours upon federal law enforcement agency request. COMPANY will submit CUSTOMER information to BANK to allow BANK to compare to any applicable list(s) provided by the federal government under authority of the USA Patriot Act in accordance with BANK procedures.

     In the event of any conflict, inconsistency, or incongruity between the provisions of this Amendment and any of the provisions of the Marketing Agreement, as previously amended, the provisions of this Amendment shall in all respects govern and control.

     IN WITNESS WHEREOF, COMPANY and BANK, each intending to be legally bound hereby, have caused this Amendment to be executed by its duly authorized officer as of the 30th of September, 2003.
