ONLINE BANKING "TERMS AND CONDITIONS"
The first time you access your accounts through Online Banking, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Online Banking Agreement ("Agreement") and acknowledge its receipt and your understanding of its terms.
This Agreement explains the terms and conditions for accessing accounts and conducting transactions at Redeemer Federal Credit Union ("Institution", "we", "us" and "our") via our Online Banking site(s). As used in this Agreement, the terms "you" and "your" refer to each person authorized to conduct transactions on your account.
Benefits of Online Banking
Through Online Banking, you can manage eligible accounts from your home or office on a personal computer. Online Banking can be used to conduct any of the following "On-line Financial Services":
Obtain balances and transaction histories on all eligible accounts enrolled in Online Banking;
Transfer money between eligible accounts (The number of transfers you can make from an account is limited as described in the applicable account agreement. In addition, if a hold is placed on any funds deposited in an eligible account, you may not transfer the portion of funds being held until that hold expires).
Institution may, from time to time, introduce new On-line Financial Services. By using those services when they become available, you agree to be bound by the terms contained in this Agreement, and its subsequent amendments.
Security & Protecting Your Account
We are strongly committed to protecting the security and confidentiality of our customer accounts information. We use several techniques to help secure our Online Banking service, including the following:
· You can only access Institution with certain browsers that have a high security standard.
· You must have a valid account number, password, and answer 1 of 5 pre-answered questions exactly (case sensitive) to logon.
· If no action is taken for 10 minutes, you will be automatically logged off the Online Banking service.
This product is best viewed in a modern browser (IE 9 or higher, Chrome or Safari) and the browser cannot be in Compatibility Mode.
In addition to compatible software, you must have an account number, a password, answer five challenge questions and maintain a Primary Share Account at Institution.
Password and Challenge Questions
Your password and answering one of five pre-answered questions will give you access to Institution accounts and services via Online Banking. Institution is entitled to act on any instructions it receives using your password and challenge question answers. For security purposes, it is recommended that you memorize your password and answers to challenge questions (case sensitive), do not write them down. We also recommend that you change your password regularly to try and avoid misappropriation by a third party. Your password and answers to challenge questions can be changed at our Online Banking site. You are responsible for keeping your password, challenge question answers, and account data confidential. When you give someone your password and/or answers to challenge questions, you are authorizing that person to use Online Banking and the On-line Financial Services. You are responsible for all transactions performed using your password and challenge question answers, even if you did not intend or authorize them. In addition, fraudulent transactions initiated using your password and challenge question answers will be charged against your account(s).
You may not appropriate any information or material that violates any copyright, trademark or other proprietary or intellectual property rights of any person or entity while using the Online Banking or On-line Financial Services. You may not gain, or attempt to gain, access to any Online Banking and/or On-line Financial Service server, network or data not specifically permitted to you by Institution or its suppliers, and you must not include any obscene, libelous, scandalous or defamatory content in any communications with Institution or its suppliers.
Accessing the Service
When you complete the Online Banking enrollment process, you will be to request a password. You will use your account number and password to access the Online Banking product and On-line Financial Services.
Each time you access the Service, you will be asked to enter your account number, password, and answer one of five pre-answered challenge questions (case sensitive). The correct responses will give you access to the Service. If the incorrect password or answer to a challenge question is entered three times, your account will become locked out and you must contact the credit union to unlock your account and reset your password and/or challenge questions.
The fee for Online Banking is currently waived. You would be notified by email, account statement, mailing, and/or Online Banking log on screen at least 30 days prior to any fees no longer being waived for this service.
You are solely responsible for controlling the safekeeping of, and access to, your password and answers to challenge questions. You are liable for all transactions you make or that you authorize another person to make even if that person exceeds his or her authority. If you want to terminate another person's authority, you must notify the Financial Institution and arrange to change your password and/or reset you challenge question answers.
