(3) This section does not prohibit a savings association or federal association and its customer from agreeing to a longer period than that specified in the schedule adopted by the director for drawing against items because of special circumstances, if the agreement is not contained in a preprinted form and is entered into by the savings association or federal association only in special circumstances.
