ONLINE DEPOSIT (REMOTE DEPOSIT CAPTURE) SERVICES END USERS AGREEMENT
Effective March 18, 2013
In this End Users Agreement, the words "I," "me," "my," "us" and "our" mean the (consumer or business) that applied for and/or uses any of the Online Deposit (Remote Deposit Capture) Services (the "Services") described in this End Users Agreement. The words "you," "your," and "yours" mean (Farmers Insurance Federal Credit Union). My Application for use of the Services, your notification of approval of my application, and my (Farmers Insurance Federal Credit Union) (Account Agreement and Disclosures) are hereby incorporated into and made a part of this End Users Agreement. In the event of a discrepancy between this End Users Agreement, Truth in Savings and Electronic Services Agreement, my Application, and your approval notification, the End Users Agreement and subsequent versions will control.
Attention Business Account Users: Please read the section titled "Business Account Users Only" for special terms and conditions.
Use of the Services. Following receipt of your notification approving my use of the Services, I am authorized by you to remotely deposit paper checks I receive to my account with you (the "Account") by electronically transmitting a digital image of the paper checks to you for deposit. My use of the Services constitutes my acceptance of the terms and conditions of this End Users Agreement. I agree to comply with the hardware and software requirements set forth at Exhibit "A," which is attached hereto and incorporated by this reference.
I will use this service by scanning checks on a conforming scanner and delivering the images electronically and information required hereby to you or your designated processor. Upon receipt of the digital image, you will review the image for acceptability. I understand and agree that receipt of an image does not occur until after you notify me of receipt of the image via the Deposit History feature. I understand that, in the event I receive a notification from you confirming receipt of an image, such notification does not mean that the image contains no errors or that you are responsible for any information I transmit to you. You are not responsible for any image that you do not receive. Following receipt of the image, you may process the image by preparing a "substitute check" or clearing the item as an image. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, you reserve the right, within your sole and absolute discretion, to accept or reject any item for remote deposit into my Account. I understand that any amount credited to my Account for items deposited using the Services is a provisional credit and I agree to indemnify you against any loss you suffer because of your acceptance of the remotely deposited check.
In addition I agree that I will not (i) modify, change, alter, translate, create derivative works from, reverse engineer, disassemble or decompile the technology or Services, (ii) copy or reproduce all or any part of the technology or Services; or (iii) interfere, or attempt to interfere, with the technology or Services.
Compliance with Law. I agree to use the products and Services for lawful purposes and in compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations, as well as all laws pertaining to the conduct of my business if applicable. I warrant that I will only transmit acceptable items for deposit and have handled the original items in accordance with applicable laws, rules and regulations. I promise to indemnify and hold you harmless from any damages, liabilities, costs, expenses (including attorneys’ fees) or other harm arising out of any violation thereof. This indemnity will survive termination of my Account and this Agreement.
Check Requirements. (See exhibit "A") Any image of a check that I transmit to you must accurately and legibly provide all the information on the front and back of the check at the time presented to me by the drawer. Prior to scanning/capturing the original check, I will endorse the back of the original check. My endorsement will include my signature and Member/Account numbers. The captured image of the check transmitted to you must accurately and legibly provide, among other things, the following information: (1) the information identifying the drawer and the paying bank that is preprinted on the check, including complete and accurate magnetic ink character recognition (MICR) information and the signature(s); and (2) other information placed on the check prior to the time an image of the check is captured, such as any required identification written on the front of the check and any endorsements applied to the back of the check. Including a) For deposit only at Farmers Insurance Federal Credit Union, b) Account Number: ####, c) Via Online Deposit, and d) On (date) mm/dd/yyyy. The image quality for the check will meet the standards for image quality established by the American National Standards Institute ("ANSI"), the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, and any other regulatory agency, clearing house or association. I hereby agree that I will only capture and deposit a check(s) as that term is defined in Federal Reserve Board Regulation CC. In addition, that this check be deemed an "item" within the meaning of Article 4 of the Uniform Commercial Code (1990 Official Text).
Rejection of Deposit. You are not liable for any service or late charges levied against me due to your rejection of any item. In all cases, I am responsible for any loss or overdraft plus any applicable fees to your Account due to an item being returned.
Items Returned Unpaid. A written notice will be sent to me electronically via Email or by use of U.S. Mail, of transactions you are unable to process because of returned items. With respect to any item that I transmit to you for remote deposit that you credit to my Account, in the event such item is dishonored, I authorize you to debit the amount of such item from the Account. These will be subject to the returned item fees as noted in the Credit Union’s "Schedule of Fees".
