    Mobile Deposit Service Agreement
    Deposits made through Mobile Banking will be subject to holds at our discretion and are not subject to our Funds Availability Policy. You are responsible for verifying the status of a Mobile Deposit after you have made the deposit and before using the funds.

    This Mobile Deposit Service Agreement, (“Agreement”) is the contract which covers your and our rights and responsibilities concerning the Mobile Deposit Service (“Service”) offered to you by SIU Credit Union (“Credit Union”). By using the Mobile Deposit Service or clicking the electronic signature “Consent” on the Mobile Deposit enrollment or application page shown on your mobile device, you and any joint owners or authorized users, jointly and severally, agree to the terms and conditions in this Agreement, and any amendments. The Service is subject to the following terms and conditions and to the instructions, rules and terms provided to you via a link within the service and incorporated by reference herein.

    1. Mobile Deposit Service
    a. Mobile Deposit Capture Process
    If we approve the Mobile Deposit Service for you, you must use Login ID and password to access your accounts. You may photograph an image of checks with your mobile device creating an electronic image and you may transmit the electronic image that the Credit Union will deposit to your account. The Credit Union may, in its discretion, convert items meeting the Credit Union’s required standards into substitute checks to facilitate the deposit and collection of such items. You agree that the manner in which checks are cleared or presented for payment shall be determined by Credit Union, in its sole discretion. We reserve the right to select the clearing agents through which we clear checks.
    b. Funds Availability
    Funds from items deposited through the Service are subject to holds in our discretion, after review of the deposit. You are responsible for verifying the status of a mobile deposit after you have made the deposit and before using the funds. You agree that the imaging and transmitting of checks alone does not constitute receipt by the Credit Union. Also, acknowledgment of receipt or delivery does not constitute an acknowledgment by the Credit Union that the transmission of a check or items does not contain errors or that funds will be available. Checks deposited though Mobile Deposit are not received by the Credit Union until we have acknowledged receipt and provided credit to your account.
    c. Deposit Limitations
    You may not use Mobile Deposit to deposit any item greater than $10,000.00. Total deposits may not exceed $10,000.00 per day, and are not to exceed $300,000.00 in any 30-day period.
    d. Deposit Acceptance
    You agree that the Credit Union may at any time, in its sole discretion, refuse to accept deposits of checks from you via Mobile Deposit session. In the event that the Service is interrupted or are otherwise unavailable, you may deposit checks in person at a Credit Union branch or via night drop or mail or other contractually acceptable method.

    2. Member Account
    a. Member Account
    You must designate a Credit Union savings or checking account as the settlement account to be used for the purposes of settling, transactions requested in connection with the Service. We will provide you with details of each specific transaction. You will be responsible for reviewing and balancing of any settlement account.
    b. Responsibility for Imaging
    You are solely responsible for imaging deposit items, accessing the service from the Credit Union and for maintaining your imaging equipment. You will be responsible for the payment of all telecommunications expenses associated with the service. The Credit Union shall not be responsible for providing or servicing any equipment for you.
    c. Deposit Requirements
    You agree that you will only use the Service to deposit checks drawn on financial institutions within the United States, excluding its territories. For checks not falling within this requirement you must deposit those checks in person, using a night drop facility or by U.S. Mail. You agree that each check you deposit through the Service will meet the image quality standards directed in the application.
    For all mobile check deposits, you must endorse the original paper check with your name and providing: “FOR REMOTE DEPOSIT WITH SIUCU ONLY”. If you fail to provide this endorsement, we may refuse the deposit and return it to you and you agree to indemnify the Credit Union from any liability or loss to the Credit Union arising from the payment of the original paper check without such required endorsement.
    d. Check Retention & Destruction
    You agree that all checks belong to you and not to the Credit Union and that those items shall be handled in accordance with this Agreement and your Member Service Agreement. After our receipt of a deposit transmission we will acknowledge by electronic means our receipt of such transmission. Your electronic transmission is subject to proof and verification. You will retain the original of all imaged checks that have been deposited via Mobile Deposit for a reasonable period of time in order to verify settlement and credit or to balance periodic statements, but in no case beyond forty-five (45) days from the date processed. It is your responsibility to properly destroy and dispose of such original checks after such time. During the period that you maintain any original checks, you understand and agree that you must use a high degree of care to protect these original checks against security risks. These risks include, without limitation, (i) theft or reproduction of the original checks (including by employees) for purposes of presentment for deposit of these original checks (i.e., after the original checks have already been presented for deposit via the Service) and (ii) unauthorized use of information derived from the original checks. When you dispose of any original checks, you understand and agree that you must use a high degree of care when selecting and implementing disposal procedures to ensure that the original checks are not accessed by unauthorized persons during the disposal process and, once destroyed, the original checks are no longer readable or capable of being reconstructed.
    e. Deposit Prohibitions
    You agree not to deposit, or attempt to deposit, or allow others, either directly or indirectly, to deposit, or attempt to de-posit, by any means:
    • Any substitute check, the original of which has already been presented for deposit via the Service;
    • Any image of a check that has already been deposited either as an original or as a substitute check;
    • Any original check, the substitute check of which has al-ready been presented for deposit via Mobile Deposit;
    • Any check made payable (individually or jointly) to someone who is not an owner on your account;
    • Any post-dated or stale-dated check;
    • Money orders, traveler’s checks, or gift checks;
    • Starter checks or counter checks; and
    • State warrants or other instruments that are not checks.
    If you, or any third party, makes, or attempts to make, a de-posit in violation of this Subsection you agree to defend, indemnify, and hold Credit Union and its agents harmless from and against all liability, damage and loss arising out of any claims, suits, or demands brought by third parties with respect to any such substitute check or original check. You agree that the aggregate amount of any items which are deposited more than once will be debited from your account, and to the extent funds in your account are insufficient to cover such amount, any balance shall be debited by Credit Union from any other deposit accounts with Credit Union in its sole discretion. You further acknowledge that you and not the Credit Union is responsible for the processing and handling of any original items which are imaged and deposited utilizing the Service and you assume all liability to the drawer of any item imaged using the service or liability arising from the Credit Union’s printing of any substitute check from those images.
    f. Your Representations and Warranties
    You represent and warrant:
    i. That you will comply with all federal and state laws, and rules and regulations applicable to deposit and check transactions, including those of the National Automated Clearing House for ACH transactions;
    ii. That all checks deposited through the Service are made payable to you;
    iii. That all signatures on each check are authentic and authorized; and
    iv. That each check has not been altered.
    In the event you breach any of these representations or warranties, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold the Credit Union and its agents harmless from and against all liability, damages and loss arising out of any claims, suits or demands brought by third parties with respect to any such breach. You further authorize the Credit Union to charge its account for the amount of any such demand, claim or suit that constitutes a breach of warranty claim under the provisions of the Uniform Commercial Code.
    g. Financial Responsibility
    You understand that you remain, solely and exclusively responsible for any and all financial risks, including, without limitation, insufficient funds associated with accessing the Service. The Credit Union shall not be liable in any manner for such risk unless the Credit Union fails to follow the procedures described in materials for use of the service. You assume exclusive responsibility for the consequences of any instructions you give to the Credit Union, for your failures to access the Service properly in a manner prescribed by the Credit Union, and for your failure to supply accurate input information, including, without limitation, any information contained in an application
    h. Account Reconciliation
    You will verify and reconcile any out-of-balance condition, and promptly notify the Credit Union of any errors within the time periods established in the Membership and Account Agreement after receipt of your account statement. If notified within such period, the Credit Union shall correct and resubmit all erroneous files, reports, and other data at the Credit Union’s then standard charges, or at no charge, if the erroneous report or other data directly resulted from the Credit Union’s error.

    3. The Credit Union’s Obligations
    a. Financial Data
    We will review and process your electronic file through a batch processing at one time per day. The Credit Union agrees to transmit all the financial data under its control required to utilize the service selected by you and to act on appropriate instructions received from you in connection with such service. The Credit Union shall exercise due care in seeking both to preserve the confidentiality of the user number, password, test key, or other code or identifier and to prevent the use of the service by unauthorized persons (and in this connection it is understood and agreed that implementation by the Credit Union of its normal procedures for maintaining the confidentiality of information relating to its members, and where practicable the obtaining by the Credit Union from any third parties engaged in the installation, maintenance and operation of the system of similar undertakings, shall constitute fulfillment of its obligation to exercise due care) but shall not otherwise be under any liability or have any responsibility of any kind for any loss incurred or damage suffered by you by reason or in consequence of any unauthorized person gaining access to or otherwise making use of the service. You assume full responsibility for the consequences of any misuse or unauthorized use of or access to the Service.
    b. Service Availability
    You understand that Service availability is at all times conditioned upon the corresponding operation and availability of the communication systems used in communicating your instructions and requests to the Credit Union. We will not be liable or have any responsibility of any kind for any loss or damage thereby incurred by you in the event of any failure or interruption of such communication systems or services resulting from the act or omission of any third party, or from any other cause not reasonably within the control of the Credit Union.
    c. Exception Items
    When we review and process your electronic file, we may reject any electronic image that we determine to be ineligible for the service (“Exception Item”) including, without limitation, electronic images of items drawn on banks located outside the United States, items drawn on U.S. Banks in foreign currency, electronic images that are illegible (due to poor image quality or otherwise), electronic images of items previously processed, electronic images previously converted to substitute checks, and electronic images with unreadable MICR information. We will notify you of any Exception Items. You agree that if you wish to attempt to deposit any Exception Item to any of your accounts with Credit Union, you will only do so by depositing the original item on which the Exception Item is based. You acknowledge and agree that even if you do not initially identify an electronic image as an Exception Item, the substitute check created by the Credit Union there from may nevertheless be returned to the Credit Union because, among other reasons, the electronic image is deemed illegible by a paying bank. The Credit Union’s failure to identify an Exception Item shall not preclude or limit your obligations to the Credit Union.
    d. Account Information
    We will provide you with daily transaction history via the Internet and the Online Banking service detailing items processed, return items, and deposit adjustments.
    e. Retention of Check Images
    The Credit Union will retain any substitute checks it generates for seven (7) years.

    4. Services Fees
    Currently there is no monthly fee for the Mobile Deposit Service. You agree to pay all fees and charges for deposit services as set forth on the Rate and Fee Schedule. All Service Fees are subject to change by the Credit Union upon thirty (30) days written notice to Member.

    5. Disclaimer of Warranties
    Member acknowledges that the service is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. The Credit Union is not responsible for any errors or omissions in or to any information resulting from your use of the service. The Credit Union makes no and expressly disclaims all warranties, express or implied, regarding the service including the warranty of title and the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Credit Union disclaims any warranties regarding the operation, performance or functionality of the service (including, without limitation, that the service will operate without interruption or be error free). Member further acknowledges that there are certain security, corruption, transmission error and access availability risks associated with using open networks such as the internet and/or telecommunication lines or circuits. Member hereby assumes all risks relating to the foregoing.

    6. The Credit Union’s Liabilities
    a. Direct Damages
    The Credit Union’s liability shall be limited to direct damages sustained by member and only to the extent such damages are a direct result of the Credit Union’s gross negligence or willful misconduct; provided that the maximum aggregate liability of the Credit Union resulting from any such claims shall not exceed one hundred dollars. In no event shall the Credit Union be liable for special, incidental, punitive or consequential loss or damage of any kind including lost profits whether or not the Credit Union has been advised of the possibility of such loss or damage. The Credit Union’s licensors or suppliers will not be subject to any liability to member in connection with any matter.
    b. Your Duty to Report Errors
    You will notify the Credit Union of any errors, omissions, or interruptions in, or delay or unavailability of, the Services as promptly as practicable, and in any event within one business day after the earliest of discovery thereof, or the date discovery should have occurred through the exercise of reasonable care, and, in the case of any error, within fourteen (14) days of the date of the earliest notice to you which reflects the error. Your failure to notify the Credit Union of any error, omission, or other discrepancy within seven (7) days from the date of a loss shall relieve the Credit Union of any liability for such error, omission, or discrepancy.
    c. The Credit Union’s Performance

    d. Limitation of Liability
    The Credit Union shall have no liability to you, or any other person or entity for any loss, damage, cost, or expense arising out of this Agreement or the Service regardless of the form in which asserted, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), warranty, or any other legal or equitable grounds, and regardless of whether the remedies available fail of their essential purpose, except as provided by applicable law for any error or delay in performing the Service provided for in this Agreement, and we shall have no liability for not effecting a transaction, if:
    i. We receive actual notice or have reason to believe that you filed or commenced a petition or proceeding for relief under any bankruptcy or similar law;
    ii. The ownership of funds involving a transaction is in question;
    iii. We suspect a breach of the security procedures;
    iv. We suspect that your account has been used for illegal or fraudulent purposes; or
    v. We reasonably believe that a transaction is prohibited by federal law or regulation, or otherwise so provided in the Agreement.
    The Credit Union will not be liable if Member fails to report timely any error or discrepancy reflected in an account statement prepared by the Credit Union, or if Member fails to report a breach of a security procedure. If the Credit Union fails to perform under this Agreement in accordance with the standards set herein, the Credit Union’s liability for damages, losses, and other compensation owing to you will be limited as set forth above.

    7. Force Majeure

    8. Termination
    Either party may terminate this Agreement upon not less than ten (10) days prior written notice to the other party. Notwithstanding any such notice of termination, this Agreement shall remain effective in respect of any transaction occurring prior to such termination. Upon any termination of this Agreement, (i) you will immediately cease using the Service, and (ii) you will promptly remit all unpaid monies due under this Agreement. The Credit Union may immediately suspend or terminate your access to the Service in the event that the Credit Union reasonably determines such suspension or termination is necessary in order to protect the Service or the Credit Union from harm or compromise of integrity, security, reputation, or operation.

    9. Modification of Services
    The Credit Union reserves the right to modify the Service from time to time without making prior notice to Member, provided, however, that the Credit Union will give you at least thirty (30) days’ notice prior to making any modifications to the Service that would materially alter their functionality.

    10. Enforcement
    You agree to be liable to the Credit Union for any liability, loss, or expense as provided in this Agreement that the Credit Union incurs as a result of any dispute involving your accounts or services. You authorize the Credit Union to deduct any such liability, loss, or expense from your account without prior notice to you. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed under the laws of the State of Illinois as applied to contracts entered into solely between residents of, and to be performed entirely in, such state. In the event either party brings a legal action to enforce the Agreement or collect any overdrawn funds on accounts accessed under this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled, subject to Illinois law, to payment by the other party of its reasonable attorney’s fees and costs, including fees on any appeal, bankruptcy proceedings, and any post-judgment collection actions, if applicable. Should any one or more provisions of this Agreement be determined illegal or unenforceable in any relevant jurisdiction, then such provision may be modified by the proper court, if possible, but only to the extent necessary to make the provision enforceable and such modification shall not affect any other provision of this Agreement.

    Funds Availability of Deposits
    This “Funds Availability of Deposits” disclosure explains our policy for the availability of deposits to the checking accounts you have with us. Deposits to other accounts with us may be subject to longer holds on funds at our sole discretion. Deposits made through Mobile Banking will be subject to holds in our discretion and are not subject to this policy.

    1. General Policy
    Our policy is to make funds from your deposits available to you on the first business day after we receive your deposit. Funds from cash or electronic deposits may be available immediately. Funds from deposits made at automated teller ma-chines (ATMs) will not be available until the second (2nd) business day after the day of your deposit. Once they are available, you can withdraw the funds in cash and we will use the funds to pay your checks and electronic fund transfers (EFTs) on the account you have with us. For determining the availability of the funds from your deposits, every day is a business day, except Sundays, and federal holidays. If you make a de-posit before 5:00 pm Monday – Thursday, 6:00 pm on Friday, or 1:00 pm on Saturday we are open, we consider that to be the day of your deposit. For deposits made at an ATM that we own or operate, a deposit made before 5:00 pm Monday – Friday or before 1:00 pm on Saturday we are open, we consider that day to be the day of your deposit. However, if you make a deposit after the applicable time stated above or on a day we are not open, we will consider that deposit made on the next business day we are open.

    2. Reservation of Right to Hold
    In some cases, we will not make all of the funds that you de-posit by check available to you on the business day after we receive your deposit. Depending on the type of check you de-posit, funds may not be available until the second (2nd) business day after the day of your deposit. However, the first $200 of your deposit will be available on the first (1st) business day. If we are not going to make all of the funds from your deposit available on the first (1st) business day, we will notify you at the time you make your deposit. We will also tell you when the funds will be available. If your deposit is not made directly to one of our employees, or if we decide to take this action after you have left the premises, we will send you the notice by the day after we receive your deposit. If you need the funds from a deposit right away, you should ask us when the funds will be available.

    3. Holds on Other Funds
    If we cash a check for you that is drawn on another financial institution, or if we provide cash back on a check you deposit, we may withhold the availability of a corresponding amount of funds that are already in the account you have with us. (We do this because the check can be returned by the institution on which it is drawn.) The funds withheld in an account will be available at the time funds from the check cashed would have been available. If we take a check for deposit that is drawn on another financial institution, we may make funds from the de-posit available for withdrawal immediately but delay your avail-ability to withdraw a corresponding amount of funds that you have on deposit in another account with us. The funds in the other account would then not be available for withdrawal until the time periods described in this disclosure for the type of check you deposited.

    4. Longer Delays May Apply
    We may delay your ability to withdraw funds from a check de-posited into an account with us for an additional number of days under certain circumstances. Federal law provides exceptions to the federal funds availability schedules when:
    • We believe a check you deposit will not be paid.
    • You deposit checks totaling more than $5,000 on any one day.
    • You deposit a check that has been returned unpaid.
    • You have overdrawn an account with us repeatedly in the last six (6) months.
    • There is an emergency, such as failure of communications or computer equipment.
    We will notify you if we delay your ability to withdraw funds for any of these reasons, and we will tell you when the funds will be available. They will generally be available no later than the seventh (7th) business day after the day of your deposit.

    5. Special Rules for New Accounts
    The following rules may apply during the first thirty (30) days after you start a new account with us:
    a. Funds from electronic direct deposits will be available on the day we receive the deposit.
    b. Funds from deposits of wire transfers, and the first $5,000 of a day’s total deposits of cashier’s, certified, teller’s, traveler’s, and federal, state, and local government checks will be available on the first (1st) business day of the deposit if the deposit meets certain criteria (for example, the check must be payable to you). The excess over $5,000 may not be available until the ninth (9th) business day after the day of your deposit.
    c. Funds from all other check deposits may not be available until the eleventh (11th) business day after the day of your deposit.

    6. Foreign Checks
    Checks drawn on financial institutions located outside the United States are not subject to these policies. Such checks must be specifically identified and processed. Generally, avail-ability of funds from foreign check deposits will be delayed un-til we have collected the funds from the institutions on which they are drawn.

We can honor checks, withdrawals, orders or requests from any Owner. All Owners are liable to Us for any overdrafts that may occur on Your Account, regardless of whether or not a benefit occurred. Any Owner may provide Us written notice to freeze funds on deposit and We may, at Our option, honor such written request. If We do, then the Account will remain frozen until We receive subsequent written notice signed by all Owners of the Account as to a disposition of funds on deposit. Any funds on deposit may be utilized to satisfy any debt or garnishment of any Owner of the Account. If the Owners of the Account hold the Account jointly as Tenants in Common and We receive notice that one of the Owners has died, We may freeze the Account until We receive evidence satisfactory to Us as to an appropriate disposition of funds on deposit in the Account. It is the responsibility of joint account Owners to determine any legal effects of opening and maintaining a joint account. CUSTODIAL ACCOUNTS. Any custodial account is subject to the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act. It is Your responsibility to determine and understand any legal effects related to this type of Account. TRUST ACCOUNTS. Trust Accounts will only be opened by the Credit Union if the Trust documentation presented by You to the Credit Union is in a manner acceptable to Our underwriting policies. We require all Trust Accounts to name a beneficiary. For Revocable Trust Accounts, the individual establishing the Trust (the “Settlor”) must be a member of the Credit Union and, any withdrawal of Trust Account funds will be deemed a revocation of the Trust to the extent of any such withdrawal. If the Account Designation shows a payable on death status, any Beneficiary has rights to the Account: (a) if the Beneficiary is a natural person, only if the Beneficiary is alive and only if the Settlor is deceased; (b) if the Beneficiary is a charity or other non-profit organization, only if the charity or non-profit organization is in operation as a validly constituted, registered and/or licensed entity under applicable state law, and only if the Settlor is deceased. If the Beneficiary dies (in the case of a natural person), or is no longer in operation as a validly constituted, registered and/or licensed entity under applicable state law (in the case of a charity or non-profit organization), the Trust is terminated. The Settlor may change the Beneficiary at any time by providing Us adequate proof of such change in a manner acceptable to the Credit Union. It is Your responsibility to determine and understand any legal effects related to this type of Account. POWER OF ATTORNEY. If You name a person to act as Your attorney-in-fact or agent in any way with Your Account, We are only obligated to deal with such person if We, in Our sole judgment, approve of the form of appointment and the supporting documentation. DEPOSIT OF ITEMS. You may make deposits to Your Account using any method available from Us, including deposits in person, by mail or electronic means. We have the right to refuse to accept any check or instrument for deposit at Our sole discretion. If You deposit an item and it is returned unpaid, We will debit Your Account for the amount of the item and charge You a Returned Check Fee. You will be liable to Us for the amount of any item You deposit which is returned unpaid, and in addition, will be responsible for any of Our costs and expenses incurred in the collection of such returned item from You, including reasonable attorneys’ fees. Subject to Our Funds Availability Policy, You may not be able to withdraw funds from Your Account until We have received final settlement for any items deposited. If You make a deposit on a Sunday or a holiday, or after Our predetermined cut-off hour on business days, the deposit will be credited to Your Account as of the next business day. COLLECTION AND PROCESSING OF ITEMS. In processing items You have deposited for collection, We are only Your agent and assume no responsibility beyond the exercise of ordinary care. Any item deposited is subject to final settlement in cash or credit. We may use any method We feel is appropriate to collect items, which may include use of a Federal Reserve Bank. We are not responsible for the acts of any third party We use for the collection of items including responsibility for lost items. If We use a local clearinghouse in the collection of items, You authorize Us to do so and to act in accordance with any applicable rules and regulations. We may permit You to withdraw funds from Your Account before final settlement has been made, however, if final settlement is not made, We have the right to charge Your Account or otherwise require You to repay such funds. In processing items presented for payment on Your Account, We will pay such items each business day in an order of Our choosing, all of which means that the transactions may not be processed in the order in which they occurred and that You could incur multiple fees in a single day should there be insufficient funds to pay all items presented that day. OVERDRAFT PROTECTION. To the extent permitted by law, You authorize Us to transfer funds from other accounts You may have with Us in necessary multiples (or in such increments as We may from time to time determine) to Your Account to cover any overdraft. If You have a line of credit with Us, transfers will be made either from Your line of credit up to Your available credit limit and/or from Your Membership Share Savings Account, provided You have enough available funds in that Account, depending upon the preference You have indicated to Us for clearing any such overdraft(s). Any overdraft transfers from Your Membership Share Savings Account may be subject to a transfer fee. You hold Us harmless from any and all liability which might otherwise exist if a transfer does not occur. NOTICE OF RECEIPT OF ACH ITEMS. Under the operating rules of the National Automated Clearing House Association which are applicable to ACH transactions involving your account and as permitted by law, We are not required to give You next day notice of receipt of an ACH item, and We will not do so. We will continue to notify You of the receipt of payments in the periodic statements We provide to You. PROVISIONAL PAYMENT (ACH ORIGINATION). Credits given by any Receiving Depository Financial Institution to the receiver with respect to any automated clearing house credit entries subject to Article 4A of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC-4A), are provisional until the Receiving Depository Financial Institution has received final settlement through a Federal Reserve Bank, or has otherwise received payment as provided in §4A-403(a) of UCC-4A. If the Receiving Depository Financial Institution does not receive such final settlement or payment, then they shall be entitled to a refund from the receiver of the amount so credited, and We shall not be deemed to have paid the receiver the amount of such entry. PROVISIONAL PAYMENT (ACH RECEIPT). Credit given by Us to You with respect to any automated clearing house credit entry is provisional until We receive final settlement for such entry through a Federal Reserve Bank. If We do not receive final settlement, You are hereby notified and agree that We are entitled to a refund of the amount credited to You in connection with such entry, and the party making payment to You via such entry (i.e., the originator of the entry) shall not be deemed to have paid You the amount of such entry.

    CHOICE OF LAW. We may accept payments on Your behalf for Your account which have been transmitted through one or more Automated Clearing Houses (“ACH”) and which are not subject to the Electronic Fund Transfer Act. Your rights and obligations with respect to such payments shall be constructed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the state of New York as provided by the operating rules of the National Automated Clearing House Association, which are applicable to ACH transactions involving your account.

NOTIFICATION OF PRE-AUTHORIZED DEPOSITS. If You have arranged to have direct deposits made to Your Account at least once every 60 days (from Your employer, the Federal government or other payor), You can call Us at (618) 549-3636 to find out whether or not the deposit has been made. You may also inquire through Q-Phone and Online Banking. RIGHT TO STOP PRE-AUTHORIZED PAYMENTS. If You want to stop any preauthorized payments, call Us at (618) 549-3636 or write Us at the address shown in this Agreement in time for Us to receive Your stop payment request three business days or more before the payment is scheduled to be made. If You call, We may also require You to put Your request in writing and get it to Us within 14 days after You call. To be sure that a third party does not bill You again for the “stopped” payment or to cancel the entire pre-authorized payment arrangement, contact the third party. OUR LIABILITY FOR FAILURE TO STOP PAYMENT. If You order Us to place a stop payment on one of Your pre-authorized payments three business days or more before the transfer is scheduled, and We do not do so, We will be liable for losses or damages, to the extent provided by law. TRANSACTION SLIPS. You can get a receipt at the time You make any transaction to or from Your Account (except Online Banking, Telephonic and mail-in transactions, and certain small-value transactions). When an electronic transfer has been made during any given month, You will receive a monthly statement to reflect all electronic fund transfers to or from Your Account during that statement period. In any case, You will receive a statement at least quarterly. FEES. We may assess reasonable charges against Your Account for transactions performed at electronic terminals. If so, We will specify any charges for these or other types of electronic transactions, including automatic transfers, on an accompanying pricing document. We will explain the charges to You when You open Your Account. You will be provided with a fee schedule, Online Banking, Q-Phone and Bill Pay Plus information after Your Account is established. Additional fee schedules are available at any of Our office locations. When You use an ATM not owned by Us, You may be charged a fee by the ATM operator, or any network used, and You may be charged a fee for a balance inquiry even if You do not complete a fund transfer. LIABILITY FOR FAILURE TO COMPLETE TRANSACTIONS. If We do not properly complete a transaction to or from Your Account according to this Agreement, We will be liable for Your losses or damages. However, We will not be liable if: (a) Your Account does not contain enough money to make the transaction through no fault of Ours; (b) the ATM where You are making the transaction does not have enough cash; (c) the terminal was not working properly and You knew about the breakdown when You started the transaction; (d) circumstances beyond Our control prevent the transaction; (e) Your Card is retrieved or retained by an ATM; or (f) Your Card or PIN has been reported lost or stolen and We have blocked the Account. LIABILITY FOR UNAUTHORIZED USE. Telephone Us at once at (618) 549-3636 or write Us at the address shown in this Agreement if You believe Your Card, PIN or Access Code have been lost or stolen, or if you believe that an electronic fund transfer has been made without Your permission using information from Your check. Telephoning is the best way of keeping Your possible losses down. You could lose all of the money in Your Account (plus Your maximum overdraft line of credit, if applicable). If You tell us within 2 business days after You learn of the loss or theft of Your Card or PIN, You can lose no more than $50 if someone uses Your Card or PIN without Your permission. If You fail to tell Us within 2 business days after You learn of the loss or theft of Your Card or PIN and We can prove that We could have stopped someone from using Your Card or PIN without Your permission if You had told Us, then You could lose as much as $500. Additionally, if Your periodic statement shows transfers that You did not make, including those made by Card, PIN or other means, You will tell Us at once. If You fail to tell Us within 60 days after We mail You the first periodic statement on which the transfer appears, You could lose the entire Account balance if We can prove We could have stopped someone from taking Your money if You had given Us notice in time. If a valid reason (such as a long trip or hospital stay) keeps You from giving Us notice, We will extend the time periods. Exception: You will have no liability for unauthorized use for Your Ultimate VISA Check Card as long as You report the loss or theft of Your Ultimate VISA Check Card within 2 business days. If You report such loss or theft after 2 business days, or provide proper notification of other unauthorized Ultimate VISA Check Card transactions, Your liability for unauthorized use will not exceed $50. These exceptions do not apply to transactions originating at an ATM or from Your gross negligence and/or fraudulent use of Your Ultimate VISA Check Card. IN CASE OF ERRORS OR IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT ELECTRONIC TRANSFERS. Call Us at (618) 549-3636 or write Us at the address shown in this Agreement as soon as You can, if You think Your statement or receipt is wrong or if You need more information about a transaction listed on the statement or receipt. We must hear from You no later than 60 days after We send You the first statement on which the problem or error appeared. (1) Tell Us Your name and Account number. (2) Describe the error or the transfer You are unsure about, and explain as clearly as You can why You believe it is an error or why You need more information. (3) Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error. If You tell us orally, We may require that You send us Your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days. We will determine whether an error occurred within 10 business days after We hear from You and will correct any error promptly. If We need more time, however, We may take up to 45 days to investigate Your complaint or question. If We decide to do this, We will credit Your Account 10 business days for the amount You think is in error, so that You will have the use of the money during the time it takes Us to complete Our investigation. If We ask You to put Your complaint or question in writing and We do not receive it within 10 business days, We may not credit Your Account. We will tell You the results within three business days after completing Our investigation. If We decide that there was no error, We will send You a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents that We used in Our investigation. If We have credited Your Account with funds while investigating an error, We will charge Your Account for those funds if We conclude no error has occurred. In this provision, all references to 10 business days will be 20 business days if Your notice of error involves an electronic fund transfer that occurred within 30 days after the first deposit to Your Account was made and all references to 45 business days will be 90 business days if Your notice of error involves an electronic fund transfer that: (a) was not initiated within a state; (b) resulted from a point-of-sale debit card transaction; or (c) if Your notice of error involves an electronic fund transfer that occurred within 30 days after the first deposit to Your Account was made. UNAUTHORIZED TRANSFERS.

You may also report the loss of a Card, PIN, Access Code or any combination thereof, by writing to Us at the address shown in this Agreement. You should also call the number or write to the address listed above if You believe a transfer has been made using the information from Your check without Your permission. FOREIGN TRANSACTIONS.

In each instance, plus or minus any adjustment determined by the Credit Union. DISCLOSURE OF ACCOUNT INFORMATION. We may disclose information to third parties about Your Account or transfers You make: (1) when it is necessary to complete an electronic transaction; or (2) in order to verify the existence and conditions of Your Account for a third party such as a credit bureau or merchant; or (3) in order to comply with a government agency or court order, or any legal process; or (4) if You give Us written permission.

    FUNDS AVAILABILITY OF DEPOSITS. This “Funds Availability of Deposits” disclosure explains our policy for the availability of deposits to the checking accounts you have with us. Deposits to other accounts with us may be subject to longer holds on funds at our sole discretion. Deposits made through Mobile Banking will be subject to holds in our discretion and are not subject to this policy.
    1. General Policy
    Our policy is to make funds from your deposits available to you on the first business day after we receive your deposit. Funds from cash or electronic deposits may be available immediately. Funds from deposits made at automated teller ma-chines (ATMs) will not be available until the second (2nd) business day after the day of your deposit. Once they are available, you can withdraw the funds in cash and we will use the funds to pay your checks and electronic fund transfers (EFTs) on the account you have with us. For determining the availability of the funds from your deposits, every day is a business day, except Sundays, and federal holidays. If you make a de-posit before 5:00 pm Monday – Thursday, 6:00 pm on Friday, or 1:00 pm on Saturday we are open, we consider that to be the day of your deposit. For deposits made at an ATM that we own or operate, a deposit made before 5:00 pm Monday – Friday or before 1:00 pm on Saturday we are open, we consider that day to be the day of your deposit. However, if you make a deposit after the applicable time stated above or on a day we are not open, we will consider that deposit made on the next business day we are open.
    2. Reservation of Right to Hold
    In some cases, we will not make all of the funds that you de-posit by check available to you on the business day after we receive your deposit. Depending on the type of check you de-posit, funds may not be available until the second (2nd) business day after the day of your deposit. However, the first $200 of your deposit will be available on the first (1st) business day. If we are not going to make all of the funds from your deposit available on the first (1st) business day, we will notify you at the time you make your deposit. We will also tell you when the funds will be available. If your deposit is not made directly to one of our employees, or if we decide to take this action after you have left the premises, we will send you the notice by the day after we receive your deposit. If you need the funds from a deposit right away, you should ask us when the funds will be available.
    3. Holds on Other Funds
    If we cash a check for you that is drawn on another financial institution, or if we provide cash back on a check you deposit, we may withhold the availability of a corresponding amount of funds that are already in the account you have with us. (We do this because the check can be returned by the institution on which it is drawn.) The funds withheld in an account will be available at the time funds from the check cashed would have been available. If we take a check for deposit that is drawn on another financial institution, we may make funds from the de-posit available for withdrawal immediately but delay your avail-ability to withdraw a corresponding amount of funds that you have on deposit in another account with us. The funds in the other account would then not be available for withdrawal until the time periods described in this disclosure for the type of check you deposited.
    4. Longer Delays May Apply
    We may delay your ability to withdraw funds from a check de-posited into an account with us for an additional number of days under certain circumstances. Federal law provides exceptions to the federal funds availability schedules when:
    • We believe a check you deposit will not be paid.
    • You deposit checks totaling more than $5,000 on any one day.
    • You deposit a check that has been returned unpaid.
    • You have overdrawn an account with us repeatedly in the last six (6) months.
    • There is an emergency, such as failure of communications or computer equipment.
    We will notify you if we delay your ability to withdraw funds for any of these reasons, and we will tell you when the funds will be available. They will generally be available no later than the seventh (7th) business day after the day of your deposit.
    5. Special Rules for New Accounts
    The following rules may apply during the first thirty (30) days after you start a new account with us:
    a. Funds from electronic direct deposits will be available on the day we receive the deposit.
    b. Funds from deposits of wire transfers, and the first $5,000 of a day’s total deposits of cashier’s, certified, teller’s, traveler’s, and federal, state, and local government checks will be available on the first (1st) business day of the deposit if the deposit meets certain criteria (for example, the check must be payable to you). The excess over $5,000 may not be available until the ninth (9th) business day after the day of your deposit.
    c. Funds from all other check deposits may not be available until the eleventh (11th) business day after the day of your deposit.
    6. Foreign Checks
    Checks drawn on financial institutions located outside the United States are not subject to these policies. Such checks must be specifically identified and processed. Generally, avail-ability of funds from foreign check deposits will be delayed un-til we have collected the funds from the institutions on which they are drawn.

All modifications or additions to Your application for membership must be in writing. You agree to pay Us the amount of any transfer request which We transmit pursuant to this Agreement when We execute a payment order to carry out Your wire transfer request. You will not make any wire transfer request which would cause You to exceed the available balance in the Account designated to pay the transfer request. If a payment order is executed which creates an overdraft, with or without Our prior consent, You agree to pay Us the overdraft amount and any overdraft fee immediately upon Our demand. We have the right to set-off the amount of any overdraft against the balance in any of Your accounts with Us and We may exercise any rights We have under any agreements which grant Us security for the payment of Your liabilities or obligations to Us. You understand and agree that the payment of a wire transfer request may be made by Us or any other financial institution used to carry out the transfer request on the basis of an identifying or account number which You have provided for a beneficiary, even if the number identifies a person different from Your intended beneficiary. You also understand and agree that We or any other financial institution used to carry out a transfer request, may rely on the identifying number of the intermediary or beneficiary’s financial institution which You have provided as the proper identification of the intermediary or beneficiary’s financial institution, even if the number identifies a financial institution different from the one You intended to identify. We or any other financial institution are not responsible for determining whether any identifying or account numbers You have provided to initiate a wire transfer are accurate. You will be liable to Us for the amount of any transfer request even if payment of the transfer request is made to a person different from the named beneficiary based upon the beneficiary’s identifying or account number provided by You or payment of the transfer request is made to a financial institution different from the one identified by name based on the identifying number which You have provided to Us. You agree to examine any statement or confirmation which We send You and to notify Us within 30 days after the mailing date on any statement or confirmation, of any discrepancy or error. If You fail to notify Us of any discrepancy or error within the required time period, You agree that We are not liable to pay interest or reimburse You for any discrepancy or error in relation to a transfer request described in such statement or confirmation. You and the Credit Union agree that the following specified security procedures represent a commercially reasonable method of providing security against unauthorized payment orders: (a) Only individuals named in Your application for membership shall issue wire transfer requests to Us; and (b) We reserve the right to telephonically contact any individual named in Your application for membership for the purpose of confirming a transfer request, regardless of amount, although We have no obligation to do so. If We cannot obtain a confirmation satisfactory to Us, then We reserve the right to refuse to honor any wire transfer request. We have no responsibility to verify the identity of any party identifying themselves as an individual authorized to receive a telephonic confirmation of any wire transfer request, other than to verify that the name given by such party corresponds to a party named in Your application for membership. If, for any reason, We are not satisfied that a wire transfer request was issued by an authorized party or confirmed by an authorized party, We may refuse to execute the transfer request. If We do so, We shall not incur any liability any nature. You agree to prevent disclosure, other than on a need-to-know basis, of any of the aspects of the security procedures which You have agreed to with Us. You will notify Us immediately if You believe the confidentiality of the security procedures has been compromised and You shall act to prevent the security procedures from being further compromised. We have no liability of any nature for delays or mistakes, provided We act in good faith and with reasonable care. We are not responsible for delays or mistakes caused by other parties through whom We transmit funds whether such other parties were selected by You or Us. We are not required to make a wire transfer on the day a wire transfer request is received, unless the wire transfer request is received within a reasonable time before any cut-off hour We have established. We will generally use the funds transfer system, but We may use any means and routes that We, in Our sole discretion, consider suitable for the transmission of funds. You agree that We have no liability and are not responsible for any delay or failure to transfer any amount specified in any wire transfer request because of rules, regulations, or policies of the Federal Reserve Board which limits, in the aggregate, the amount We can transfer from time to time during any business day, provided, however, that We will promptly notify You of any such failure or delay and will effectuate the transfer as soon as is reasonably possible. We shall have no liability whatsoever for any special, consequential, punitive, or indirect loss or damage suffered by You in connection with services offered by Us which are subject to this Agreement, regardless of whether We know or should have known such damages might be incurred.

This Agreement is also subject to all applicable Operating Circulars of the Federal Reserve Bank in the district in which We are located and any other applicable provisions of federal or state law. To the extent that Regulation J does not apply to this Agreement, this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the state in which We are chartered.

A copy of the Deposit Account Agreement and Disclosure is available to you on request from your SIU Credit Union officer. Privilege Pay is not a line of credit. However, if you inadvertently overdraw your account, we will have the discretion to pay the overdraft, subject to the limit of your Privilege Pay and the amount of the overdraft fee. SIU Credit Union is not obligated to pay any item presented for payment if your account does not contain sufficient available funds. Any discretionary payment by SIU Credit Union of an overdraft check (or item, such as an ATM withdrawal) does not obligate SIU Credit Union to pay any other overdraft check (or item), or to provide prior notice of its decision to refuse to pay such check (or item). Pursuant to SIU Credit Union’s commitment to always provide you with the best level of service, now and in the future, if your consumer account (primarily used for personal and household purposes) has been open for at least thirty (30) days and thereafter you maintain your account in good standing, which includes at least: A) Bringing your account to a positive balance within every thirty (30) day period for a minimum period of 24 hours; B) Not being in default on any loan or other obligation to SIU Credit Union and C) Not being subject to any legal or administrative order or levy, SIU Credit Union will have the discretion to pay overdrafts within the Privilege Pay limit, but payment by SIU Credit Union is a discretionary courtesy and not a right of the customer/member or an obligation of SIU Credit Union. SIU Credit Union in its sole and absolute discretion, can cease paying overdrafts at any time without prior notice of reason or cause.
