2. Description of Service and Consent
Credit Union debit cardholders may send one-time Transfers to Credit Union members or a depositor of another financial institution. You may originate these Transfers by use of a computer or a mobile smart phone. For Person to Person transfers only — notice is given to the Recipient by the Sender providing the Recipient's email address or mobile phone number. To use this Service you are providing information to our Service Provider from your mobile phone, desktop, laptop, or other computer. Service Provider is a vendor of Credit Union.
By participating in any transfer service offered by Nusenda Credit Union, you are representing to the Credit Union that you are the owner or you have the authority to act on behalf of the owner of the mobile phone number or email address you are using to send or receive messages regarding Transfers. In addition, you are consenting to the receipt of emails or automated text messages from the Credit Union or its agent, regarding the Transfers and represent to the Credit Union that you have obtained the consent of the Recipients of your intended Transfers.
Funds may be transferred to any account in the United States as long as the Transfer is legal and allowed by the financial institutions involved.
Individuals aged 18 and older with a debit card issued by Credit Union are eligible to use this Service to send funds to a Recipient. Any individual age 18 years and older with an account in the United States that may receive POS or ACH transactions may use this Service to receive funds that are transferred by the Sender. The Service is not offered to individuals under the age of 18. Other restrictions and eligibility requirements apply as described in this Agreement or other disclosures. Credit Union does not knowingly collect any personal information from or about individuals under 18 years of age. Please do not submit such information to the Credit Union, and as a parent or legal guardian, please do not allow your children to submit personal information without your permission. By using the Site or the Service, you represent that you meet these requirements.
You may make one-time Person to Person Transfers by selecting your debit card number. The Sender provides the Recipient's email address or mobile phone number, and the Service uses this information to notify the Recipient. A Recipient must accept the Transfer within 14 days, or the Transfer will be cancelled and reversed. During this period, funds will be removed from the Sender's Account for the amount of the Transfer. Once the Recipient has successfully accepted the Transfer, funds will be sent to the Recipient's financial institutions for deposit to the Recipient's account. If the Sender and Recipient are both enrolled in the Service but are customers of different financial institutions, Transfers will be immediately debited from the Sender's Account and will be delivered to the Recipient's financial institution once claimed. Credit Union is not responsible for any failure of another financial institution to timely credit its customer's account.
You acknowledge and agree that Transfers will be completed using only the email address or mobile phone number you enter even if it identifies a person different from your intended Recipient. The name you enter will help you identify your intended Recipient in the drop down menu but will not be used to process payments. You must accurately enter the Recipient's email address or mobile phone number since your obligation to pay for the Transfer will not be excused by an error in the information you enter.
Transfer Instructions relating to external accounts and the transmission and issuance of data related to such Transfer Instructions shall be received pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, and the rules of the National Automated Clearing House Association ("NACHA") and the applicable automated clearing house, as well as any EFT Network, or networks, utilized to automate the transfer of funds and governed by Regulation E, (collectively, the "Rules"). The parties agree to be bound by such Rules as in effect from time to time. In accordance with such Rules, any credit to an Account shall be provisional until the Credit Union or the third party institution, which holds the account, has finally settled such credit.
It is the responsibility of the Sender and Recipient of funds to provide accurate information. You agree that you as Sender are authorized to withdraw or as Recipient are authorized to deposit funds into the Accounts whose numbers you provide or into the Accounts associated with the card number you are providing. You authorize the Credit Union, directly or through third parties, to make any inquires considered necessary to validate your identity. This may include asking you for further information, requiring you to take steps to confirm ownership of your email address or financial instruments, ordering a credit report and verifying your information against third party databases or through other sources.
You authorize the Credit Union to debit your account to complete the Transfer you request. If you are receiving funds, you authorize the crediting of your account using card networks or NACHA.
For a complete list of your rights and responsibilities regarding electronic funds transfers, including time frames for disputing such transactions, refer to our Account Information Brochure (AIB) at nusenda.org.
5. Sender Acknowledgment
By using this Service you, as the Sender, authorize the sending of an email or text message instructing the Recipient how to receive the funds that you are sending. You are further authorizing any Recipient of this message to act on the instructions to receive the funds you are sending. You acknowledge that any party receiving the email message at the email address you provide or text message at the mobile phone number you provide may obtain the funds you are sending.
You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for determining the identity of the party who receives the email or text message and acts upon the email or text message you provide. Your funds may not reach the intended Recipient because of errors made by the Sender or Recipient and you could lose all the funds. The funds that are credited to the account cannot be recalled by us. If you suspect that you have entered information incorrectly, call us immediately and we may be able to cancel the Transfer. We have no obligation to cancel the Transfer or to reimburse funds that were transferred according to the Sender's instructions. Furthermore, we may reject any Transfer request and may terminate your use of this Service for any reason including attempting insufficient funded Transfers.
6. Fees and Limitations on Transfers
You may not exceed a daily transaction limit of $750.00. Multiple transfers may be sent each day; however we may modify the amount and frequency of Transfers, or revoke the service at any time for security reasons or due to account activity.
Funds may be transferred from the account from which the debit card is authorized to transfer funds. Such transfers may overdraft your account and may result in a transfer from another account to cover the overdraft. In any of these situations, a transfer fee will be charged, as applicable. You may be denied service for insufficient funds in your account. You will be responsible for any other transaction fees that apply to your Account.
Please note that your mobile carrier may charge you for text messaging. Please check your mobile service agreement for details on applicable fees. The receiving institution may have limits on the number and type of Transfers allowed and may also charge a transaction fee.
7. Timing of Transfers
Transfers to remove the funds from the Sender's Account may take place immediately. However, the timing of funds received will depend on when the Recipient responds to the text or email and when their financial institution posts the Transfer. The posting of the Transfer is dependent on the business days of that institution.
8. Issues Affecting the Posting of Transfers
You authorize us to debit your account to complete the Transfer you request. If you are receiving funds, you authorize the Credit Union to credit your Account using card networks/switches or NACHA.
Other events may affect the timing or success of a Transfer reaching the intended Recipient. Such events may include, but are not limited to, errors made by the Sender or Recipient in entering information, inaccurate account or card number information, delays in posting by the receiving institution, acts of God, and network and NACHA interruptions. If we believe the Transfer may be illegal, we may decline or reverse the Transfer. The receiving institution may choose not to post the Transfer or to delay posting the Transfer. Neither the Credit Union nor the Service Provider is responsible for any delays in the Transfer of funds or the posting of funds to the Recipient's Account. You may have certain rights and responsibilities regarding the failure to timely post transactions and you are encouraged to pursue dispute resolution with the receiving financial institution.
Financial institutions have rules and regulations that govern their accounts. Some of these regulations may not allow a POS or ACH transfer of funds. You are responsible for ensuring that these types of Transfers are allowed for the Account that you specify. For example, an IRA may not allow electronic transfers directly into the Account. We are not responsible for any action or lack of action taken by the financial institution that delays, inhibits, or prevents the posting of the Transfer to the Account.
If the financial institution contacts us or our Service Provider for information regarding your Account, you authorize us to discuss the Transfer and the account information you have provided.

Member further agrees that it will not remotely deposit any check(s) or other item(s) that: (a) are payable to any person or entity other than Member, (b) are drawn, or otherwise issued, by Member or any affiliate of Member on any account of Member or of such affiliate, (c) are prohibited by Credit Union's then current procedures pertaining to the Service (the "Procedures") or are in violation of any law, rule or regulation, (d) Member knows or suspects, or should know or suspect, is fraudulent or otherwise not authorized by the owner of the account on which the Check is drawn, (e) have not been previously endorsed by a Credit Union and are either "substitute checks" (as defined in Reg CC or other applicable federal law or regulation) or "image replacement documents" that purport to be substitute checks, without Credit Union's prior written consent, (f) are drawn on financial institutions that are located outside of the United States or Territories of the United States, (g) is a Remotely Created Check, as that term is defined in Reg CC, (h) any single item or combination of items totaling $10,000 or more per business day, or (i) which are not acceptable to Credit Union for deposit into a deposit account as provided in the Deposit Agreement, which is incorporated herein by reference and made a part hereof (Checks described in clauses (a) through (h) each a "Prohibited Check" and, collectively, "Prohibited Checks").

Member agrees not to exceed the Scan Limit. A File is considered received by Credit Union when a complete copy of such File has been written on a Credit Union electronic storage device in conformity with Credit Union's technical and operational requirements. For purposes of determining when a File has been delivered and received, Credit Union's records shall be determinative. A File which is not balanced in accordance with the Procedures shall be deemed to have been received on the business day following the business day on which the File is actually received by Credit Union ("business day" means any day which Credit Union is open to conduct substantially all of its services, but shall not include Saturday, Sunday or federal holidays). Credit Union reserves the right to change the number of Files that may be transmitted in a day and the Scan Limit.

During the Retention Period, Member shall take appropriate security measures to ensure that: (a) only authorized personnel shall have access to original Checks, (b) the information contained on such Checks shall not be disclosed, (c) such Checks will not be duplicated or scanned more than one time and (d) such Checks will not be deposited or negotiated in any form. Member shall destroy original Checks upon the expiration of the Retention Period applicable to such Checks. Member will use commercially reasonable methods of destruction approved by Credit Union to destroy original Checks after expiration of the Retention Period. Member hereby indemnifies Credit Union for, and holds Credit Union harmless from and against, any and all claims, demands, actions, causes of action, losses and damages, of whatever nature or kind, and regardless of the theory upon which the same is (are) based, caused directly or indirectly by, arising out of, related to, in connection with or resulting wholly or partially from, the destruction of original Checks by Member.

As a form of correction, Credit Union may credit Member's Account for the full amount of the deposit and make any necessary adjustments to the Account to correct the error. Credit Union may, at its option, also perform a risk management analysis of one or more Files submitted by Member to detect potentially fraudulent Checks, and, in its sole discretion, Credit Union may reject any such File or the Images or other information contained therein. If after examination of a File and the Images and other information contained therein, Credit Union determines that Member has complied with this Agreement and processed and transmitted the File in accordance herewith and with the Procedures, the File is balanced and the Images meet the requirements of Section 6 of this Agreement, then Credit Union shall accept the File (an "Accepted File") for deposit to Member's Account. Information and data reported hereunder: (a) may be received prior to final posting and confirmation and is subject to correction and (b) is for informational purposes only and may not be relied upon. Member agrees that Credit Union shall have no liability for the content of payment-related information. Notwithstanding the fact that Nusenda Credit Union has accepted a File for deposit, any credit made to Member's Account shall be provisional, and Member shall remain liable to Credit Union for any errors, inaccuracies, breach of warranties and any other loss sustained by, or claim made against, Credit Union.
8. Provisional Credit and Availability of Funds. Upon acceptance of the File, and subject to Credit Union's Funds Availability Policy, Credit Union will grant Member's Account Provisional Credit (as herein defined) for the total amount of the Corrected File or the Accepted File, as applicable. As used herein, "Provisional Credit" means that the credit is made to Member's Account subject to final payment of the Checks and subject to the terms of the Deposit Agreement. Member and Credit Union agree that Credit Union's Funds Availability Policy applies to Items deposited using this Service and Funds from Deposits may not be available for immediate withdrawal.
9. Laws, Rules and Regulations. Member agrees to comply with all existing and future operating procedures used by Credit Union for processing of transactions.

Online Bill Payer
Agreement: All references to "Online Bill Payer" reflect the service offered by Nusenda Credit Union (Credit Union). All terms and conditions are applicable to all electronic/telephonic remote access devices used to access Nusenda Credit Union's Online Bill Payer Service and software. This document, together with the brochure called "Account Information" provides the terms and conditions of the Credit Union's "Online Bill Payer" Service.
1. ONLINE BILL PAYER SERVICE
By providing the Credit Union with the names and account information of those persons to whom you wish to direct payment, you authorize the Credit Union to follow the payment instructions that it receives through the payment system. When the Credit Union receives a payment instruction, you authorize it to charge your share draft account and remit funds on your behalf so that the funds arrive as close to the business day designated by you as reasonably possible. While it is anticipated that most transactions will be completed on the day of your selected processing date, it is understood that due to circumstances beyond the control of the Credit Union, particularly delays in handling and posting payments by slow responding companies or financial institutions, some transactions may take a day or even a few days longer to be posted to your account with those merchants.
For this reason, it is recommended that all payments or transfers be scheduled to transact five days before the actual due date (not the late date). Scheduling your payment during a grace period may void all payment guarantees. In any other event, including but not limited to choosing a payment date past the stated due date of your invoice, the risk of incurring (and the responsibility for paying) any and all late charges or penalties shall be borne by you.
The Credit Union will use its best efforts to make all your payments properly. However, the Credit Union shall incur no liability if it is unable to complete any payments initiated through "Online Bill Payer" because of the existence of any one or more of the following circumstances:
- Your account does not contain sufficient funds to complete the payment or transfer, or the transfer would exceed the credit limit of your overdraft account;
- The merchant mishandles or delays a payment sent by "Online Bill Payer";
- You have not provided "Online Bill Payer" with the correct names or account information for those persons or entities to whom you wish to direct payment;
- Circumstances beyond the Credit Union's control (such as, but not limited to, fire, flood, or interference from an outside force) prevent the proper execution of the transaction and the Credit Union has taken reasonable precautions to avoid those circumstances.
Provided none of the foregoing four (4) exceptions to the Credit Union's performance obligations are applicable, if the Credit Union causes an incorrect amount of funds to be removed from your share draft account or causes funds from your transaction account to be directed to a person or entity which does not comply with your payment instructions, the Credit Union shall be responsible for returning the improperly transferred funds to your transaction account and for directing to the proper recipient any previously misdirected payments or transfers.
THE FOREGOING SHALL CONSTITUTE THE CREDIT UNION'S ENTIRE LIABILITY AND YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE CREDIT UNION BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS (EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY THEREOF) ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE INSTALLATION, USE, OR MAINTENANCE OF THE EQUIPMENT, SOFTWARE, AND/OR THE "ONLINE BILL PAYER" SERVICE.
Note: Payment of taxes or court-directed payments through "Online Bill Payer" is prohibited.
2. PASSWORD AND SECURITY
You agree not to give or make available your Personal Security Code (PSC) to any unauthorized individuals.

BUSINESS INTERNET BANKING
This Agreement contains the terms for the Business Internet Banking system that allows for electronic access to your accounts at Nusenda Federal Credit Union (Credit Union). You agree to accept the terms and conditions of this agreement. From time to time Credit Union may amend any of the terms and conditions contained in the agreement. Such amendments become effective as stated on any notice sent or made available to the Company.
This Agreement also applies to any other agreements for services used by the Company including agreements for ACH Origination Services, Wire Transfers, and Positive Pay Services.
We will ordinarily provide you with access to the Business Internet Banking system 24 hours a day, seven days a week. However, we reserve the right to suspend the service from time to time as we deem appropriate. If we cannot provide the service or if the service is delayed by failure of transmission facilities, equipment failure, software failure or other conditions that we cannot control, we are not responsible.
To access the Business Internet Banking system you will need a computer with Internet access and web browser that supports 128 bit encryption. You are responsible for the set up and maintenance of your computer. We are not responsible for any electronic virus or viruses that you may encounter.
Credit Union has the right to monitor and review all activity and transactions conducted on the Service. Credit Union reserves the right to discontinue the Service, or any of the services referenced, at any time.
The Company is solely responsible for controlling the Company's distribution and safekeeping of, and access to, security procedures, personal identification numbers (PINS), initial passwords, hardware tokens, and any other confidential code Credit Union may assign. Any transaction request accompanied by an appropriate password or PIN will be deemed made by an authorized representative of the Company. The Company agrees that its use of Internet Banking and any related services are at the Company's risk and Credit Union shall not be liable for any loss incurred by the Company of any breach of security.
You will indemnify Credit Union and hold it harmless for any loss or expense caused by any person with the apparent authority to access the Service. You agree to (a) comply with the Guides and procedures that we provide you; (b) take reasonable steps to safeguard the confidentiality and security of the security codes; (c) closely and regularly monitor the activities of employees who access the Service; and (d) notify Credit Union immediately if you believe any user IDs and/or passwords have been lost, stolen, used without permission, or otherwise compromised.
Each time you make a transfer or payment with a Service, you warrant that our security procedures are commercially reasonable (based on the normal size, type, and frequency of your transactions). Some of our Services allow you or your Security Administrator to set transaction limitations and establish internal controls. Your failure to set such limitations and implement such controls increases your exposure to, and responsibility for, unauthorized transactions. You agree to be bound by any transfer or payment order we receive through the Services, even if the order is not authorized by you, if it includes your Security Codes or is otherwise processed by us in accordance with our security procedures.
You understand and acknowledge that for increased security and protection you should use a separate computer, which is not used for any other purpose, to access the Internet Banking system. You understand that using the Internet Banking computer for any other purposes may reduce the security of your Internet Banking. You are solely responsible for this risk as well as all other risks of the Internet Banking system.
Information Processing and Reporting
We offer a number of Services that require us to receive, process, and report information involving your accounts and transactions. We will not be responsible for determining the accuracy, timeliness or completeness of any information that you or others provide to us. We will not have a duty to interpret the content of any data transmitted to us, except to the limited extent set forth in this Agreement. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, we will not be required (by means of any security procedure or otherwise) to detect errors in the transmission or content of any information we receive from you or third parties.
Information You Provide to Us. You assume the sole responsibility for providing us with complete and accurate information in the form and format that we require. We are not responsible for confirming such information, or for monitoring or refusing to process duplicate instructions by you or your agents. For example, if you give us a wire transfer instruction that is incorrect in any way, you agree that we may charge your account for the payment whether or not the error could have been detected by us. We are not obligated to detect errors in your transfer or payment instructions.
Your Instructions. You must accurately describe transaction beneficiaries, intermediary financial institutions, and the beneficiary's financial institution in transfer and payment instructions. If you describe any beneficiary or institution inconsistently by name and number, other institutions and we may process the transaction solely on the basis of the number, even if the number identifies a person or entity different from the named beneficiary or institution.
Your Review. You acknowledge that it is not possible for the Services to be totally free from operator, programming or equipment error, and that errors in processing and compiling data may occasionally occur (e.g., due to the failure of others to provide accurate information, telecommunication failures, or a breakdown in an electronic data interchange). As such, you agree to review and verify all results and to maintain adequate controls for insuring both the accuracy of data transmissions and the detection of errors. Unless otherwise required by law, our sole responsibility for any reporting errors caused by us will be to reprocess the information for the period in question and to provide corrected reports at our own expense. You agree to maintain adequate backup files of the data you submit for at least ten business days in order to facilitate any needed reconstruction of your transactions (e.g., in the event of a telecommunication failure). If we are unable to provide a Service for any reason, we will take reasonable steps to resume processing, however availability of any Service is not guaranteed and we shall not be liable for any failure or inability to provide any Service.
We may process any payment or transfer instruction (including an amendment or cancellation instruction) that we believe is transmitted or authorized by you if we act in compliance with the security procedures (e.g., we obtain the Security Code(s)) you and we have agreed upon for the Service. The instructions will be deemed effective as if made by you, and you will be obligated to pay us in the amount of such transactions, even though they are not transmitted or authorized by you.
We may elect to verify the authenticity or content of any instruction (but shall have no obligation to do so), as an alternative security procedure, by placing a call to any authorized signer on your account or any other person designated by you for that purpose. If we are unable to verify an instruction to our satisfaction, we may reject the instruction.
If an unauthorized person uses your user ID, password, and/or personal security questions to gain access to the Online Banking Service, we will complete all transactions as instructed. This is why it is important for you to notify us if your user ID, password, and/or personal security questions have been compromised in some manner. Until you do so, we may treat all instructions as having been authorized by you. We will have no liability for any unauthorized transactions other than as provided by federal laws and regulations governing electronic funds transfers. Please review the liability provisions in this agreement relating to your rights and obligations if someone uses your access security codes or information without your permission."
In no event will we be liable to you for any consequential, incidental or indirect damages arising out of the use, misuse or inability to use our Services, or for any loss of any data, even if we have been informed of the possibility of such damages.

The Company agrees to indemnify Credit Union against any loss liability, or expense (including attorney's fees and expense) resulting from or arising out of any claim of any person that Credit Union is responsible for any act or omission of the Company, or any other person described in this paragraph.
In no event shall Credit Union be liable for any consequential, special, punitive or indirect loss or damage which the Company may incur or suffer in connection with this Agreement, including without limitation, loss of damage from subsequent wrongful dishonor resulting from the Credit Union's acts or omissions pursuant to this Agreement.
Without limiting the generality of the forgoing provisions, or the provisions of the Business Internet Banking Agreement, Credit Union shall be excused from failing to act or delay in acting if such failure or delay is caused by legal constraint, interruption of transmission or communication facilities, equipment failure, war, emergency conditions or other circumstances beyond the Credit Union's control. In addition, Credit Union shall be excused from failing to transmit or delay in transmitting an Entry if such transmittal would result in Credit Union having exceeded the limitation upon its intra-day net fund position established pursuant to present or future Federal Reserve guidelines or which results in Credit Union violating any provision of any present or future risk control program of the Federal Reserve or any rule or regulation of any other United States governmental regulatory authority.
Notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary, in the event of default under the terms of this Agreement by the Company, Credit Union shall have all rights and remedies available at law or in equity.
