Digital Banking Agreement and Disclosures
Please read this Digital Banking Services Agreement ("Agreement") carefully and print a copy for your records. You have a choice of whether or not to accept the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If you choose to click "I Accept" button at the end of this Agreement, you represent that you have reviewed this Agreement and agree to all of its terms and conditions.
What this Agreement Covers. This Agreement between you ("you" or "yours") and The Golden 1 Credit Union ("Golden 1," "we," "our" or "us") states the terms and conditions that govern your use of various online banking and mobile banking services offered by Golden 1 (collectively, "Digital Banking Services" and each, a "Service"), which permit you to perform certain banking functions on our website at golden1.com ("golden1.com" or "Site") or by other electronic means, including, but not limited to, by email, mobile or wireless access ("Digital Banking"). Digital Banking Services include, without limitation, services that allow you to access your account information, make payments, transfer funds and conduct other banking transactions through the Site ("Online Banking"), or from your mobile device ("Mobile Banking"). Certain other capitalized terms used in this Agreement are defined in the "Definitions" section below.
Accepting this Agreement. Before Golden 1 provides Digital Banking Services to you, you must read and accept the terms of this Agreement. If you agree to all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement once you have completely reviewed them, you may indicate your consent by clicking on the "I Accept" button at the end of this Agreement. If you choose not to accept the terms and conditions of this Agreement, your access to Digital Banking Services will not be activated. By accepting this Agreement, you are agreeing to the terms and conditions for all Digital Banking Services whether or not you use them. This Agreement controls all general aspects of your use and access to Digital Banking Services, including, among other things, the use of your "Electronic Signature" (as defined below). The terms and conditions of this Agreement pertaining to a particular Service will become applicable at the time when you request access to such Service.
When you use or access Digital Banking Services, or permit another person to use Digital Banking Services on your behalf, you acknowledge receipt of this Agreement and agree to be bound by all terms and conditions contained herein, and all applicable terms and conditions contained in other agreements between us and you governing your checking, savings and loan accounts accessible in connection with Digital Banking Services. You further agree to follow all instructions provided in connection with Digital Banking Services as reflected on your computer monitor, handheld computing device, personal digital assistant (PDA), and other Internet-enabled devices (collectively, "mobile device") or email or other system access screens.
Relation to Other Agreements. The terms and conditions of this Agreement are in addition to the terms and conditions of any and all other deposit account, loan and credit agreements, including all disclosures made pursuant to such agreements that you have with Golden 1. These terms and conditions supplement and do not replace the Disclosure of Account Information ("C-36") applicable to your account(s) with Golden 1. To the extent that this Agreement and another agreement contain conflicting provisions, the provisions in this Agreement will control (with the exception of provisions in another agreement which specify the necessary hardware, software, and operating system, in which case such other provision controls), but all other contractual obligations of the parties remain subject to the terms and conditions of any other agreement.
Agreement to Receive Electronic Communications. You have previously provided your affirmative consent to receive in electronic format, by electronic mail, website posting or through logged-in website interaction, all Communications related to Digital Banking Services. "Communications" means this Agreement, including information that we are required to disclose under the Electronic Fund Transfer Act ("EFTA") and its implementing Regulation E, and any amendments, disclosures, notices, privacy policies, and any information that we are required by law to provide to you in writing, and any notice regarding hardware or software changes or access to the Site. Once you have enrolled in Digital Banking Services, periodic updates to this Agreement and other Communications related to your account(s) will be provided electronically only. Your consent to receive electronic Communications does not automatically enroll you in our Online Statements. You must complete a separate enrollment to stop receiving paper statements.
You may withdraw your consent for receiving electronic Communications at any time. Withdrawal of your consent will immediately terminate the delivery of future Communications to you in electronic form. If you elect to receive Communications only in paper format, it may slow the speed at which we can complete certain steps in transactions with you because we will need first to send the Communications to you in paper format, and then wait until we receive back from you your acknowledgment of your receipt of such paper Communications. To withdraw your consent, all you need to do is contact us by phone at 1-877-GOLDEN 1(1-877-465-3361) or write to us at Golden 1 Credit Union, P.O. Box 15966, Sacramento, CA 95852-0966. The withdrawal of your consent will not affect the previously delivered electronic Communications.
To access and retain the Communications electronically, you must have a working connection to the Internet with email capability and software that permits you to receive and access Portable Document Format or "PDF" files with Adobe® Reader® software, Apple® Safari® browser, Google® Chrome™ browser or Mozilla® Firefox® browser. If we change the minimum hardware or software requirements, we will send you a description of the new hardware and software requirements to the email address you provide. If you are unable to receive electronic documents, you must notify us.
Paper Version of Communication. This Agreement is available for viewing online at any time, and can be downloaded or printed using your computer and a printer. You may request a paper version of this Agreement or any other Communication we provide to you electronically by contacting our Member Service Contact Center at 1-877-GOLDEN 1(1-877-465-3361) or by logging on to your Online Banking account at golden1.com. We will mail paper copies of a Communication to you (at the address shown on our records) within ten (10) Business Days after the date we receive your request. Although we do not currently impose a fee or other charge for the initial paper copy of your Communications, we reserve the right to impose a fee or charge in the future and to change such fee at any time.
Electronic Signature. By selecting "I Accept" at the end of this document you are signing this Agreement electronically and you agree that doing so is the legal equivalent of you manually signing this Agreement and that you will be legally bound by its terms and conditions. You further agree that your use of a key pad, mouse or other device to select an item, button, icon, or similar act/action, or to otherwise provide Golden 1 instructions via Digital Banking, or in accessing or making any transaction regarding any agreement, acknowledgement, consent terms, disclosures, or conditions constitutes your signature, acceptance, and agreement as if actually signed by you in writing (your "Electronic Signature"). You also agree that no certification authority or other third-party verification is necessary to validate your Electronic Signature and that the lack of such certification or third-party verification will not in any way affect the enforceability of your Electronic Signature or any resulting contract between you and us. You also represent that you are authorized to enter into this Agreement for all persons who own or are authorized to access any of your accounts and that such persons will be bound by the terms of this Agreement.
Description. You may access your accounts through Digital Banking on the Site or through your mobile device to obtain various services, including, but not limited to, access your account information, make payments, transfer funds, and receive online statements, that Golden 1 currently makes or in the future may make available via Digital Banking and which you currently or in the future may access or otherwise use. You must request access to each of Digital Banking Services individually. You will be automatically enrolled in Mobile Banking when you enroll in Online Banking. Sign on to Digital Banking for a complete list of available Digital Banking Services.
Eligibility. To be eligible for Digital Banking Services, you must be a member of Golden 1, a resident of the United States or its possessions, and have a deposit account in good standing with Golden 1. You must be the member/account owner on the deposit account in order to access it through Digital Banking. Joint owners are eligible for Digital Banking Services; provided that only one set of Security Credentials, such as User ID and password, will be issued for joint accounts. You agree to use Digital Banking Services for individual purposes only, and not on behalf of any business, corporation, proprietorship or other entity. Digital Banking Services are not offered to minors unless they are using an account in the name of the minor with a parent or guardian as a co-signor or guarantor. By using each of Digital Banking Services, you represent that you meet these requirements and that you agree to be bound by this Agreement. We reserve the right to refuse enrollment to any member and to terminate your enrollment in any or all Digital Banking Services.
Access. To access Digital Banking Services, you will need a personal computer or mobile device with Internet access and a supported Internet browser. You also need one or more Security Credentials, such as your User ID and password. You can access your Golden 1 accounts and process transactions through Digital Banking 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, except as otherwise provided herein.
System Unavailability. Access to Digital Banking Services may be unavailable at times due to system maintenance or circumstances beyond our control. During these times, you may call our Member Service Contact Center at 1-877-GOLDEN 1(1-877-465-3361) for assistance. We will make all reasonable efforts to ensure the availability of Digital Banking Services; however, we are in no way liable for system unavailability or any consequential damages that may result.
Notification and Changes in Terms and Conditions. The terms and conditions of this Agreement may be modified or amended by us at any time. When changes are made, we will update this Agreement on the Site on or before the effective date, unless an immediate change is necessary to maintain the security of the system or unless a law, rule or regulation requires that it be updated at an earlier time. Any notification, required or appropriate, will be mailed or made available to you online. We may change or amend any part of this Agreement, including changes in terms, conditions and fees, as long as we give you advance notice as required by law. Please access and review this Agreement regularly. If you find this Agreement unacceptable to you at any time, please discontinue your use of Digital Banking Services. Your continued use of Digital Banking Services after notification of changes will be considered your agreement to be bound by all such changes.
Email Address, Notification and Updates. Your email address is required in order for you to obtain Digital Banking Services. We may notify you through email when a Communication or updated Agreement is available. To ensure that you continue to receive any such email notice pertaining to Communications or Digital Banking Services, you agree to keep us informed of any changes in your email address. You may modify your email notification address by accessing "Self Services" within your Online Banking account accessible via the Site. If we are not able to send you an email notification, you will still be able to access Communications through Digital Banking. Regardless of whether we are able to deliver an email notification to you, you agree that Communications will be deemed transmitted and received as soon as we make the Communications available to you through Digital Banking. You further agree to promptly review Communications made available to you through Digital Banking. It is your responsibility to use Digital Banking regularly to check for updates to Communications and this Agreement.
Email Capabilities and Limitations. Online Banking includes email capabilities allowing you to send and receive secure electronic email messages to and from us. We will not immediately receive and review email messages that you send and will NOT process any request for a funds transfer received via email. Further, we may not act upon requests for stop payments, requests for replacement passwords, reports of lost or stolen passwords or unauthorized transactions (please refer to the "Your Responsibility and Liability for Unauthorized Transfers" section below for appropriate action), reports of lost or stolen automated teller machine ("ATM") or Visa cards, or on any other request in which we would normally require written notification or your authorizing signature, without first confirming the authenticity of the email request/notification via telephone. In some instances, written confirmation reflecting your authorizing signature may still be required. We will not take action based on your email requests until we actually receive your message and have a reasonable opportunity to act. If your request requires immediate attention, contact our Member Service Contact Center directly at 1-877-GOLDEN 1(1-877-465-3361).
Security Credentials. Your Security Credentials give access to your account(s) through Digital Banking. During your enrollment, you are required to select a User ID and a password for use with Digital Banking. The User ID you select must be between eight (8) and thirty-two (32) characters in length and contain at least one alpha and one numeric value. The password you select must be between six (6) and twenty (20) characters in length and contain at least one alpha and one numeric value. Your password is required for security purposes in connection with the authentication of Digital Banking Services, including, without limitation, loan applications, transfers and payments you initiate through Digital Banking. Only one (1) password per account structure will be issued. You may also be assigned other Security Credentials, such as temporary identification codes or other means of authenticating your identity.
As a security measure, we may require you to complete additional verification steps before allowing you to access Digital Banking Services. For example, when you attempt to login from a computer or a mobile device we do not recognize, we may ask you to verify your identity by asking security questions. The security questions are selected and answered by you upon your initial login to Digital Banking. Alternatively, as described in the Verification Alerts section below, you may request a temporary identification code from us and enter it along with your password to confirm your identity and proceed with login. Upon several unsuccessful attempts to answer security questions, your access to Digital Banking will be revoked and you must contact us to reestablish your authorization to use Digital Banking.
Your Security Credentials are confidential and should NOT be disclosed to others or recorded on documentation or records located on or around your personal computer or mobile device. You agree to maintain the confidentiality of your Security Credentials at all times. You also agree to take reasonable precautions to safeguard your Security Credentials. Digital Banking allows you to change your password. For your protection, you should change your password frequently. If you forget your password or your system access is disabled due to the use of an incorrect password, you must contact the Member Service Contact Center at 1-877-GOLDEN 1(1-877-465-3361) to have a temporary password issued to you. We reserve the right to require written request for a new/replacement password.
Because your Security Credentials are the principal security measures used to protect access to your accounts through Digital Banking, you agree not to give or make available any of your Security Credentials to any unauthorized individuals, and you agree to be responsible for all actions taken by anyone to whom you have provided your Security Credentials. You are responsible for all payments you authorize using Digital Banking Services. If you disclose your Security Credentials to another person, we may treat such disclosure as your authorization to that person to transfer or withdraw funds from your account(s). If you authorize anyone to use your Security Credentials, then that authority shall continue until you specifically revoke such authority, including by changing the password or notifying us and obtaining a replacement password. If you disclose your Security Credentials and/or any other means to access your accounts through Digital Banking to anyone, you assume all risks and losses associated with such disclosure. This means that you are responsible, to the extent permitted by law, for any transactions and activities performed from your accounts by such person or entity, even those you did not intend them to make. If you fail to maintain security of your Security Credentials and we suffer a loss, we reserve the right to terminate your access to Digital Banking as well as other Golden 1 deposit and loan services.
Online Statements. You may request to receive your account statements online only ("Online Statements"). You may request Online Statements by selecting "I want to sign up for Online Statements and Electronic Notices" during the initial Digital Banking enrollment. Alternatively, you may request Online Statements at any time by clicking on the Online Statements tab, following the required steps, and agreeing to the terms of the Consent to Receive Online Statements.
Coverage. The EFTA and its implementing Regulation E govern some of the transactions subject to this Agreement, and some terms and conditions included in this Agreement are required by federal law. The following disclosures apply to all electronic fund transfers, as defined in Regulation E, conducted to or from consumer accounts through Digital Banking Services, including, without limitation, electronic fund transfers conducted through Bill Payment Service, Popmoney Payment Service, and External Transfer Service.
Your Responsibility and Liability for Unauthorized Transfers. You are responsible for all transfers and payments you initiate and authorize using Digital Banking. You are also responsible for monitoring the confidentiality and security of your Security Credentials. If you permit other persons to use Digital Banking and your Security Credentials, you are responsible for any transactions they authorize from any of your accounts. Notify us IMMEDIATELY if you believe that your password or any other Security Credentials have been lost or stolen, that someone has used them or may use them to access your accounts, or that any electronic fund transfer or any other transfer of money has been made without your permission. Calling our Member Service Contact Center at 1-877-GOLDEN 1(1-877-465-3361) is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account plus any available credit on your line(s) of credit.
If you notify us within two (2) Business Days after learning or suspecting that any part of your Security Credentials was lost, stolen, or used by someone without your permission, you can lose no more than $50.00. If you do NOT notify us within two (2) Business Days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Security Credentials or that someone has accessed your account without authorization, and we can prove we could have prevented someone from using your Security Credentials and initiating a transaction without your permission had you told us, you could lose as much as $500.00.
Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, tell us AT ONCE. If you do not tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement was mailed or made available to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the sixty (60) days if we can prove that we could have prevented someone from taking the money had you told us in time. If you grant authority to make transfers to another person (such as a family member or friend) who exceeds the authority granted, you are fully liable for any transfers until you notify us that transfers by that person are no longer authorized. If a valid reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time period.
Contact in Event of Unauthorized Transfer. If you believe that your password or any other Security Credentials have been lost or stolen, that someone has used them or may use them to access your accounts without your permission, call our Member Service Contact Center at 1-877-GOLDEN 1(1-877-465-3361), or write to us at Golden 1 Credit Union, P.O. Box 15966, Sacramento, CA 95852. You should also call or write to us if you believe a transfer has been made using the information from your check without your permission.
Limits on Transfers and Transactions. There are no limits on the number or value of transactions you may initiate through Digital Banking except as stated below, provided collected funds are available in your account or sufficient credit is available on your line of credit. You cannot initiate transfers using Digital Banking to or from certificate accounts, individual retirement accounts, or any restricted accounts. Overdraft protection (if any) is NOT automatically triggered to cover "insufficient funds" transactions. We reserve the right to limit the frequency and dollar amount of any transactions at any time for security reasons.
Transaction Limitations on Savings and Money Market Accounts. You are allowed a total of six (6) transfers and withdrawals by automatic overdraft, telephone transfers, personal computer transfers, mobile device transfers or preauthorized transfers per calendar month (or statement cycle of at least four (4) weeks) from your regular savings or money market savings under the same account. You may transfer any available balance, unless limited under another agreement. These transfer and withdrawal limitations do not apply to transactions conducted at ATMs, in person, or by mail. Also, internal transfers to make payments to your loans with us are excluded from this limitation. A preauthorized transfer includes any arrangement with us to pay funds from your account at (a) a predetermined time; (b) on a fixed schedule; or (c) upon oral or written orders received through the initiating person or by mail. You may also authorize other persons to initiate preauthorized transfers from your account on your behalf. If you repeatedly exceed the transfer limitation set forth above, your account will be subject to closure. We may refuse any withdrawal request that is greater in number than the frequency permitted, or which is for an amount greater than any withdrawal limitations.
Finance Charges on Loan Transfers. Each transfer made from your Visa® account, Golden ReserveSM, home equity line of credit account or any other revolving line of credit account you may have with us, is considered a cash advance. Finance charges begin to accrue from the effective date of each loan transfer in accordance with the terms of your credit agreement(s).
Funds Availability and Accrual of Dividends. Funds from electronic fund transfer credits/deposits will be available on the same day of the transfer in accordance with our "Funds Availability Policy," which can be found within the C-36 provided to you at the time you opened your account(s) with us. Dividends begin to accrue on the effective date of the transfer.
Future Dated Transfers. Future dated transfers are transactions that can be scheduled up to one year in advance of the desired transaction date. All future dated transfers will be processed at 1:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time (PST) on the scheduled date of transfer.
Frequency of Transfers. Transfers can be requested for one time only or scheduled to automatically recur weekly, monthly, quarterly or annually. Recurring transfers can be open-ended and continue indefinitely until canceled, or they can be limited to a specific number of occurrences as established by you, subject to the transaction limitations on savings and money market accounts.
Processing Dates, Funds Availability and Cancellation Instructions for Transfers. For transfers that are to be processed on the date they are initiated, funds are immediately deducted from your account and cannot be canceled for any reason once the transfer request has been completed. Sufficient funds must be available in the account from which the transfer is being made at the time of transfer. For future dated transfers, sufficient funds must be available in the account from which the withdrawal is being made no later than 1:00 p.m. PST on the scheduled transfer date. Any request to cancel or delete a future dated transfer must be made prior to 1:00 p.m. PST on the transaction date.
Electronic Presentment and Payment of Checks. In some cases when you write a check to a merchant in payment of goods or services, the merchant may present that check electronically for payment instead of sending us the paper check. Generally, merchants who make use of electronic presentment of checks will inform you of their intention to do so at the time you give them your check. When we receive these items in electronic form, they will be debited against your account the same as if we had received the actual paper checks; however, these transactions are covered under the provisions of the EFTA. When you provide information to a merchant from your personal check (such as the MICR encoded routing, account and serial numbers), or send your check to a lockbox regardless of whether the check is blank, partially or fully completed, along with your signature, and the check is converted into an electronic fund transfer to debit the funds from your account, this is covered under the provisions and protections of the EFTA.
When a paper check has been returned unpaid to a merchant because there are not sufficient funds in your account to cover it, the merchant may re-present the check to us electronically. The check represented electronically can be processed as an ACH payment up to three (3) times until it clears (that includes the first presentment, which may or may not have been in check form). Re-presented check entries, which result from the original check being processed in paper form, are NOT covered under the EFTA; they are covered by the UCC, and Regulation CC.
If you wish to place a stop payment order on a check that you have given to a merchant who intends to present it to us electronically, we must receive your stop payment order in the manner required by law and in such time and manner that allows us a reasonable opportunity to act upon it before we receive the electronic debit entry.
Right to Stop Payment on Electronic Transfers. A stop payment order cannot be placed once an electronic fund transfer has been initiated by you and accepted by the system, or a bill payment transfer has been made and your account has been debited on the scheduled payment date. If you have made a transfer in error, you must reverse the transaction by initiating a correcting transfer. Please note that transfers cannot be corrected via Digital Banking when made as transfer/payments to closed-end loan accounts. Contact us immediately if you require reversal of these transactions or need additional assistance. For further information on placing stop payments on bill payment transfers before payment is made, refer to the "Bill Payment" section below. You agree to indemnify and hold us harmless against any and all claims you or any third party may have arising from or in connection with your failure to timely request a stop payment in accordance with the terms and conditions of your agreements with us.
Stop Payment on Preauthorized Payments. If you have told us in advance to make regular payments out of your account, you can stop any of these payments. Call our Member Service Contact Center at 1-877-GOLDEN 1(1-877-465-3361), or write to us at Golden 1 Credit Union, P.O. Box 15966, Sacramento, CA 95852, in time for us to receive your request three (3) Business Days or more before the payment is scheduled to be made. If you call, we may require you to put your request in writing and deliver it to us within fourteen (14) days after your call. Unless you notify us otherwise, we will treat your stop payment order as a request to stop payment on one particular payment. If you want all future payments to a particular party stopped, you must specifically advise us of your intention. We will charge you for each stop payment order in accordance with our Fee Schedule. If you order us to stop one of these electronic payments three (3) Business Days or more before the transfer is scheduled to be made, and we do not do so, we will be liable for your losses or damages proximately caused by us.
Confidentiality. It is our general policy to treat your account information as confidential. However, we will disclose information to third parties about your account or the transfers you make in the following situations: (a) where it is necessary for completing transfers; (b) to comply with government agency or court orders, such as a lawful subpoena; (c) to persons authorized by law in the course of their official duties; (d) to a consumer reporting agency as defined by applicable law; (e) to our employees, auditors, service providers, attorneys or collection agents in the course of their duties; (f) to verify the existence and condition of your account for a third party, such as a credit bureau or merchant; (g) as disclosed in our privacy notice previously delivered to you; (h) if you give us your written permission; or (i) as otherwise permitted by applicable law.
Fees and Charges. We do not charge fees for making electronic fund transfers; however, other fees and charges associated with your account(s) will continue to apply. There may be fees and charges related to the Bill Payment Service and External Transfer Service if used by you. Refer to our Fee Schedule for details on fees and service charges. You are solely responsible for the payment of any Internet service provider, telephone and utility company charges incurred in connection with accessing Digital Banking Services.
Periodic Statements; Account Transaction History. Your completed Digital Banking transactions will appear on your periodic account statements. You will get a monthly account statement on the electronic funds transfer activity on your accounts unless there are no transfers in a particular month. In any case, you will get a statement at least quarterly. Be sure to review and verify all statement information thoroughly. You may also obtain information on transfers and payments by inquiry of your transactional account history using Digital Banking. You agree to review your transactions by this method instead of receiving receipts by mail. You may access and download your transactional account history through Digital Banking. When you do so, Online Banking will display your transactional account history for the past two (2) years in 120 calendar day increments, and Mobile Banking for the past 90 calendar days in ten (10) transaction increments. You may need to download your transactional account history periodically if you wish to have all of your account information on your personal computer.
Our Liability. If we do not complete a transfer to or from your Account on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we may be liable for your losses and damages; however, there are some exceptions. We will NOT be liable, for instance:
If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough available funds in your Account to make the transfer;
If the transfer would exceed any permitted overdraft line you have with us;
If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire, flood, power failure, labor dispute, computer breakdown, telephone line disruption, or a natural disaster) prevent or delay the transfer despite reasonable precautions taken by us;
If the funds in your account are subject to legal process, an uncollected funds hold, or are otherwise not available for withdrawal;
If the password or transaction information or other information you have provided is incorrect, incomplete, ambiguous, or untimely;
If the system was not working properly and you know or have been advised about the malfunction before you execute the transfer;
If you are in default on an account to which you are attempting a transfer; or
There may be other exceptions stated in our agreement with you.
In addition, we will also have no liability whatsoever for failure to complete a payment or transfer you initiate or attempt to initiate through Digital Banking under any of the following circumstances:
If you did not properly follow software or Digital Banking instructions on how to make the transfer or payment;
If you did not give us complete, correct and current instructions or information to process your transaction request, including, without limitation, the Eligible Transaction Account, External Account and Biller information;
If you did not authorize a payment soon enough for the payment to be made, transmitted, received and credited by the payee/vendor;
If we made a timely payment but the payee/vendor did not promptly credit your payment after receipt;
If your personal computer, mobile device and/or software malfunctioned for any reason;
If the transfer or payment could not be completed due to system unavailability or a telecommunication or Internet service provider service failure; or
If we blocked the transfer to protect the integrity or security of the system.
Errors or Questions. In case of errors or questions about your electronic fund transfers, you should notify us as soon as possible by calling our Member Service Contact Center at 1-877-GOLDEN 1(1-877-465-3361), writing us at Golden 1 Credit Union, P.O. Box 15966, Sacramento, CA 95852, or emailing us a secure message utilizing the Online Banking Message Center as soon as you can, if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transfer listed on a statement or receipt. We must hear from you no later than sixty (60) days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared. You must:
Tell us your name and account number (if any).
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.
Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error and the date it occurred.
For security reasons, please do not include confidential information such as account numbers in your unsecure email communications to us.
If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) Business Days. We will determine whether an error occurred within ten (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 forty-five (45) calendar days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within ten (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 request in writing and we do not receive it within ten (10) Business Days, we may not credit your account.
For errors involving new accounts, point-of-sale, or foreign initiated transactions, we may take up to ninety (90) days to investigate your complaint or question. For new accounts, we may take up to twenty (20) Business Days to credit your account for the amount you think is in error.
We will tell you the results within three (3) 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.
Internal Transfers. You may use Digital Banking to make one-time or repeating transfers among Accounts held by us ("Cross Account Transfer"). Cross Account Transfers are permitted to any sub-Account (unless otherwise restricted) as established within the membership Account structure at Golden 1. We reserve the right at any time to restrict or prohibit Cross Account Transfer capabilities on specific types of Accounts. To transfer available funds from one Account to another, you must log on to Digital Banking using the membership Account number from which you wish to transfer the funds. Cross Account Transfer capabilities are divided into two types: (1) transfers between your Golden 1 Accounts; or (2) transfers to another person"s Golden 1 Account.
Transfers Among Your Golden 1 Accounts. You may transfer funds between your Golden 1 Accounts that have different Account numbers. This service is available where the accountholder and his or her Social Security number are the same on both Accounts. To request Cross Account Transfer capabilities to transfer funds between your Golden 1 Accounts online, you can send us a secure message within Online Banking, contact a Member Service Representative, or visit one of our branches. You must be a legal owner on all Accounts identified. We may verify legal ownership on all Accounts before Cross Account Transfer capabilities are permitted. To access and initiate funds transfers on your Accounts, you must also provide us with each Account number.
Transfers to Third Party Golden 1 Accounts. You may transfer funds to another Golden 1 Account, of which you are not a legal owner. To request Cross Account Transfer capabilities to transfer funds from your Account to the Account of another member (a third party), you can send us a secure message within Online Banking, contact a Member Service Representative or visit one of our branches. You may be permitted to transfer funds from your Account(s) to the Account of another member; however, you will not have access to, or the capability to review Account balances or activity, or to perform other transactions on third-party Account(s). Transfers of funds made by you to third-party Accounts are non-revocable and cannot be reversed without the third-party"s written consent, even if you have made an error in the amount transferred or the Account to which the funds were transferred.
External Transfers. You may use Digital Banking to transfer funds between your Golden 1 Accounts and your Accounts that are maintained by other financial institutions ("External Transfer Service"). Golden 1 Account types that qualify as Eligible Transaction Accounts for the External Transfer Service include checking, money market, or savings accounts that you hold with us. Other financial institutions may have restrictions regarding transfers into and out of various account types and limitations on the External Accounts. We are not responsible for any costs or losses arising out of transfers that are not permitted by another financial institution. Please refer to your other financial institution"s terms and conditions relating to incoming and outgoing transfers. The following types of transfers are available through the External Transfer Service: (1) a one-time transfer for which processing is initiated immediately, (2) a one-time transfer for which processing is initiated at a later specified date up to one (1) year, and (3) a recurring series of transfers for which processing is initiated on the specified dates.
Authorization. You represent and warrant that you are either the sole owner or a joint owner of the Eligible Transaction Account and the External Account and that you have all necessary legal right, power and authority to transfer funds between the Eligible Transaction Account and the External Account. If you are a joint owner of the Eligible Transaction Account, the External Account, or both, then you represent and warrant that (i) you have been authorized by all of the other joint owners to operate such Accounts without their consent (including, without limitation, to withdraw or deposit any amount of funds to such Accounts or to even withdraw all funds from such Accounts); and (ii) we may act on your instructions regarding such Accounts without liability to such other joint owners. Further, you represent and warrant that the External Account is located in the United States.
When we receive a Transfer Instruction from you, you authorize us to (i) debit your Eligible Transaction Account and remit funds on your behalf to the External Account designated by you and to debit your applicable Account for any service fees and additional charges associated with the External Transfer Service as disclosed in our Fee Schedule; or, as applicable, to (ii) credit your Eligible Transaction Account and remit funds on your behalf from the External Account designated by you and to debit your applicable Account for any service fees and additional charges associated with the External Transfer Service. You also authorize us to reverse a transfer from the applicable Account if the debit is returned from the other Account in the transaction for any reason, including, but not limited to, nonsufficient funds.
It is your responsibility to ensure the accuracy of any information that you enter into the External Transfer Service, and for informing us as soon as possible if you become aware that this information is inaccurate. You may not use a P.O. Box as a postal address. We will make a reasonable effort to stop or recover a transfer made to the wrong Account once informed, but we do not guarantee such recovery and will bear no responsibility or liability for damages resulting from incorrect information entered by you.
Processing. We will use reasonable efforts to make all your transfers properly. However, we shall incur no liability if we are unable to complete any transfers initiated by you because of the existence of any one or more of the circumstances described in the "Our Liability" subsection within the Electronic Fund Transfers section above, or if the transfer is refused as described in the "Refused Transfers" section below.
Transfer Methods and Amounts. The "Payment Methods and Amounts" section of the General Terms below applies to the External Transfer Service, even in circumstances where the External Account is closed and we are attempting to return funds to such Account.
Transfer Cancellation Requests and Refused Transfers. You may cancel a transfer at any time until it begins processing (as shown in the External Transfer Service). We will, to the extent permitted by law, make reasonable attempts to return any unclaimed, refused, refunded, prohibited, or denied transfer to your Account that we debited for the funds transfer. If this is unsuccessful (for example, the Eligible Transaction Account has been closed), we will make reasonable attempts to otherwise return the funds to you.
Stop Payment Requests. If you desire to stop any transfer that has already been processed, you must contact us as provided herein. Although we will make a reasonable effort to accommodate your request, we will have no liability for failing to do so. We may also require you to present your request in writing within fourteen (14) days. The charge for each request will be the current charge for stop payment orders as set out in our Fee Schedule.
External Transfer Service Fees and Additional Charges. You are responsible for paying all fees associated with your use of the External Transfer Service. Applicable fees will be disclosed in the user interface for, or elsewhere within, the External Transfer Service or Site. Any applicable fees will be charged regardless of whether the External Transfer Service was used, except for fees that are specifically use-based. Use-based fees for the External Transfer Service will be charged against the Account that is debited for the funds transfer. There may also be charges for additional transactions and other optional services. You agree to pay such charges and authorize us to deduct the calculated amount from the applicable Eligible Transaction Account you hold with us or the Account that is debited for the funds transfer, depending on how such charges are described in the user interface for the External Transfer Service. Any financial fees associated with your standard deposit accounts will continue to apply. You are responsible for any and all telephone access fees and Internet service fees that may be assessed by your telephone and Internet service provider. The "Failed Or Returned Payment Instructions" section of the General Terms applies if you do not pay our fees and charges for the External Transfer Service, including, without limitation, if we debit the External Account for such fees, as described in this section, and there are insufficient fees in the External Account, and it should be interpreted as applying to the External Account, not just the Eligible Transaction Account, in such circumstances.
Refused Transfers. We reserve the right to refuse any transfer. We will notify you promptly if we decide to refuse to transfer funds. This notification is not required if you attempt to make a transfer that is not allowed under this Agreement.
Returned Transfers. In using the External Transfer Service, you understand that transfers may be returned for various reasons such as, but not limited to, the External Account number is not valid. We will use reasonable efforts to research and correct the transfer to the intended Account or void the transfer and credit your Account from which you attempted to transfer funds. You may receive notification from us.
Description. You may use Digital Banking to receive and pay bills, schedule recurring payments, and track your payment history ("Bill Payment Service"). The Bill Payment Service includes (i) online bill payment, which enables you to receive, view, and pay bills from the Site, and (ii) electronic bill delivery and presentment, which electronically presents you with electronic bills from select Billers. To access the Bill Payment Service, you will need to sign on to Digital Banking using your Security Credentials, and then click on the Payments tab on the navigation bar. From there the system will link you to the Bill Payment Service.
Bill Payment Service. The following terms and conditions apply to the Bill Payment Service:
Payment Scheduling. The earliest possible Scheduled Payment Date for each Biller will be designated within the portion of the Site through which the Bill Payment Service is offered when you are scheduling the payment. Therefore, the Bill Payment Service will not permit you to select a Scheduled Payment Date less than the earliest possible Scheduled Payment Date designated for each Biller. When scheduling payments you must select a Scheduled Payment Date that is no later than the actual Due Date reflected on your Biller statement unless the Due Date falls on a non-Business Day. If the actual Due Date falls on a non-Business Day, you must select a Scheduled Payment Date that is at least one (1) Business Day before the actual Due Date. Scheduled Payment Dates must be prior to any late date or grace period. Depending on the method of payment, your Eligible Transaction Account may be debited prior to the Scheduled Payment Date. For example, if the selected method of payment is a draft, the draft arrives earlier than the Scheduled Payment Date due to expedited delivery by the postal service, and the Biller immediately deposits the draft, your Eligible Transaction Account may be debited earlier than the Scheduled Payment Date.
Bill Payment Service Guarantee. Due to circumstances beyond the control of the Bill Payment Service, particularly delays in handling and posting payments by Billers or financial institutions, some transactions may take longer to be credited to your Account. The Bill Payment Service will bear responsibility for any late payment related charges up to $50.00 should a payment post after its Due Date as long as the payment was scheduled in accordance with the "Payment Scheduling" section above.
Payment Authorization and Payment Remittance. By providing the Bill Payment Service with names and account information of Billers to whom you wish to direct payments, you authorize the Bill Payment Service to follow the Payment Instructions that it receives through the Site. In order to process payments more efficiently and effectively, the Bill Payment Service may edit or alter payment data or data formats in accordance with Biller directives.
When the Bill Payment Service receives a Payment Instruction, you authorize the Bill Payment Service to debit your Eligible Transaction Account and remit funds on your behalf so that the funds arrive as close as reasonably possible to the Scheduled Payment Date designated by you. You also authorize the Bill Payment Service to credit your Eligible Transaction Account for payments returned to the Bill Payment Service by the United States Postal Service ("USPS") or Biller, or payments remitted to you on behalf of another authorized user of the Bill Payment Service.
We will attempt to make all your payments through the Bill Payment Service properly. However, we shall incur no liability and any Bill Payment Service Guarantee (as described above) shall be void if we are unable to complete any payments initiated by you through the Bill Payment Service because of the existence of any one or more of the circumstances described in the "Our Liability" subsection within the Electronic Fund Transfers section above.
Provided none of the foregoing exceptions are applicable, if the Bill Payment Service causes an incorrect amount of funds to be removed from your Eligible Transaction Account or causes funds from your Eligible Transaction Account to be directed to a Biller which does not comply with your Payment Instructions, we shall be responsible for returning the improperly transferred funds to your Eligible Transaction Account, directing to the proper Biller any previously misdirected transactions, and, if applicable, for any late payment related charges.
Payment Cancellation Requests. You may cancel or edit any Scheduled Payment (including recurring payments) by following the directions within the portion of the Site through which the Bill Payment Service is offered. There is no charge for canceling or editing a Scheduled Payment. Once the Bill Payment Service has begun processing a payment, it cannot be cancelled or edited, and a stop payment request must be submitted.
Stop Payment Requests. Our ability to process a stop payment request for the Bill Payment Service will depend on the payment method and whether or not a check has cleared. We also may not have a reasonable opportunity to act on any stop payment request after a payment has been processed. If you desire to stop any payment that has already been processed, you must contact our Member Service Contact Center as set forth herein. Although we will attempt to accommodate your request, we will have no liability for failing to do so. We also may require you to present your request in writing within fourteen (14) days. The charge for each stop payment request will be the current charge for stop payment orders as set out in our Fee Schedule.
Exception Payment Requests. Exception Payments may be scheduled through the Bill Payment Service; however, Exception Payments are discouraged and must be scheduled at your own risk. Except as required by applicable law, in no event shall the Bill Payment Service be liable for any claims or damages resulting from your scheduling of Exception Payments. The Bill Payment Service Guarantee does not apply to Exception Payments.
Payment Methods. We reserve the right to select the method in which to remit funds on your behalf to your Biller. These payment methods may include, but may not be limited to, an electronic payment, an electronic to check payment, or a laser draft payment (funds remitted to the Biller are deducted from your Payment Account when the laser draft is presented to your financial institution for payment).
Electronic Bill Delivery and Presentment. The Bill Payment Service includes a feature that electronically presents you with electronic bills from select Billers. Electronic bills may not be available from all of your Billers. Electronic bills are provided as a convenience only, and you remain solely responsible for contacting your Billers directly if you do not receive their statements. This Agreement does not alter your liability or obligations that currently exist between you and your Billers. If you activate one of the Bill Payment Service"s electronic bill options, you agree to the following terms:
Presentation of Electronic Bills. You will receive electronic bills from a Biller only if both (i) you have designated it in the Bill Payment Service as one of your Billers, and (ii) the Biller has arranged with our Service Provider to deliver electronic bills. The Bill Payment Service may then present you with electronic bills from that Biller if either: (x) you affirmatively elect online within the Bill Payment Service to receive electronic bills from the Biller, or (y) the Biller chooses to send you electronic bills on a temporary "trial basis." In either case, you can elect online within the Bill Payment Service to stop receiving electronic bills from a Biller. Electing to receive electronic bills, automatically receiving trial electronic bills, and declining further elected or trial electronic bills all occur on an individual Biller basis. The Bill Payment Service does not include an option to prevent you from participating in the automatic trial electronic bill feature. When affirmatively electing to receive electronic bills from a particular Biller, you may be presented with terms from that Biller for your acceptance. We are not a party to such terms.
Paper Copies of Electronic Bills. If you start receiving electronic bills from a Biller, the Biller may stop sending you paper or other statements. The ability to receive a paper copy of your statement(s) is at the sole discretion of the Biller. Check with the individual Biller regarding your ability to obtain paper copies of electronic bills on a regular or as-requested basis.
Sharing Information with Billers. You authorize us to share identifying personal information about you (such as name, address, telephone number, Biller account number) with companies that you have identified as your Billers and which we have identified as offering electronic bills for purposes of matching your identity on the Bill Payment Service"s records and the Biller"s records to (i) activate your affirmative request for electronic bills, and/or (ii) confirm your eligibility for "trial basis" electronic bills.
Information Held by the Biller. We are unable to update or change your personal information such as, but not limited to, name, address, phone numbers and email addresses, that is held by the Biller. Any changes will require you to contact the Biller directly. Additionally it is your responsibility to maintain all usernames and passwords for all electronic Biller sites. You also agree not to use someone else"s information to gain unauthorized access to another person"s bill. We may, at the request of the Biller, provide to the Biller your email address, service address, or other data specifically requested by the Biller for purposes of the Biller matching your identity against its records or informing you about the Biller"s services and/or bill information.
Activation. Upon activation of the electronic bill feature of the Bill Payment Service, we will notify the Biller of your request to receive electronic billing information. The presentment of your first electronic bill may vary from Biller to Biller and may take up to sixty (60) days, depending on the billing cycle of each Biller. Additionally, the ability to receive a paper copy of your statement(s) is at the sole discretion of the Biller. It is your responsibility to keep your accounts current while your electronic bill feature is being activated. Each electronic Biller reserves the right to accept or deny your request to receive electronic bills.
Authorization to Obtain Bill Data. Your activation of the electronic bill feature for a Biller shall be deemed to be your authorization for us to obtain bill data from the Biller on your behalf. For some Billers, you will be asked to provide us with your user name and password for that Biller. By providing us with such information, you authorize us to use the information to obtain your bill data.
Notification. We will attempt to present all of your electronic bills promptly. In addition to notification within the Bill Payment Service, we may send an email notification to the email address listed for your account. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that this information is accurate. In the event you do not receive notification, it is your responsibility to periodically log on to the Bill Payment Service and check on the delivery of new electronic bills. The time for notification may vary from Biller to Biller. You agree to hold us harmless should the Biller fail to deliver your statement(s). You are responsible for ensuring timely payment of all bills. Copies of previously delivered bills must be requested from the Biller directly.
Cancellation of Electronic Bill Notification. The electronic Biller reserves the right to cancel the presentment of electronic bills at any time. You may also cancel electronic bill presentment at any time. The time frame for cancellation of your electronic bill presentment may vary from Biller to Biller. It may take up to sixty (60) days, depending on the billing cycle of each Biller. We will notify your electronic Biller(s) as to the change in status of your account and it is your sole responsibility to make arrangements for an alternative form of bill delivery. We will not be responsible for presenting any electronic bills that are already in process at the time of cancellation.
Accuracy and Dispute of Electronic Bill. We are not responsible for the accuracy of your electronic bill(s). We are only responsible for presenting the information we receive from the Biller. Any discrepancies or disputes regarding the accuracy of your electronic bill summary or detail must be directly addressed and resolved with the Biller directly by you. This Agreement does not alter your liability or obligations that currently exist between you and your Billers.
Fees and Additional Charges. You are responsible for paying all fees associated with your use of the Bill Payment Service. Applicable fees will be disclosed in the user interface for, or elsewhere within, the Bill Payment Service or Site. Any applicable fees will be charged regardless of whether the Bill Payment Service was used, except for fees that are specifically use-based. Use-based fees for the Bill Payment Service will be charged against the Billing Account. There may also be charges for additional transactions and other optional services. You agree to pay such charges and authorize us to deduct the calculated amount from your designated Billing Account. Any financial fees associated with your standard deposit accounts will continue to apply. The "Failed or Returned Payment Instructions" section of the General Terms below applies if you do not pay our fees and charges for the Bill Payment Service, including, without limitation, if we debit the Billing Account for such fees, as described in this section, and there are insufficient fees in the Billing Account.
Biller Limitation. The Bill Payment Service reserves the right to refuse to pay any Biller to whom you may direct a payment, including, without limitation, if it appears to be a prohibited payment or an Exception Payment under this Agreement. As required by applicable law, the Bill Payment Service will notify you promptly if it decides to refuse to pay a Biller designated by you.
Returned Payments. In using the Bill Payment Service, you understand that Billers and/or the USPS may return payments to the Bill Payment Service for various reasons such as, but not limited to, Biller"s forwarding address expired; Biller account number is not valid; Biller is unable to locate account; or Biller account is paid in full. The Service Provider will attempt to research and correct the returned payment and return it to your Biller, or void the payment and credit your Eligible Transaction Account. You may receive notification from the Bill Payment Service.
Information Authorization. In addition to the "Information Authorization" section of the General Terms below, you agree that the Bill Payment Service reserves the right to obtain financial information regarding your account from a Biller or your financial institution (for example, to resolve payment posting problems or for verification).
Payment Authorization and Payment Remittance. By providing us with names and telephone numbers, email addresses, and/or bank account information of Receivers to whom you wish to direct payments, you authorize us to follow the Payment Instructions that we receive through the Popmoney Payment Service. Once registered, you authorize us to credit your Eligible Transaction Account for payments remitted to you on behalf of a Sender without further approval from you.
When we receive a Payment Instruction from you, you authorize us to debit your Eligible Transaction Account for the amount of any such Payment Instruction plus any related fees in effect (and as disclosed on the Site) at the time you initiate the Payment Instruction, and to remit funds on your behalf. You acknowledge and agree that any applicable fees will be charged when we receive a Payment Instruction from you, regardless of whether the Payment Instruction is ultimately completed. You also authorize us to credit your Eligible Transaction Account for the receipt of payments, including but not limited to those payments returned to us from Receivers to whom you sent payment(s) and those payments that were cancelled and returned to you because the processing of the Payment Instruction could not be completed.
You acknowledge and agree that if your Payment Instructions identify an account by name and account number, the relevant financial institution may execute those Payment Instructions by reference to the account number only, even if such account number does not correspond to the account name. You further acknowledge and agree that financial institutions holding the account may choose to not investigate discrepancies between account names and account numbers. We have no responsibility to investigate discrepancies between account names and account numbers, outside of our obligations under the law to investigate errors described above. You agree that we will not be liable in any way for any payments that you may receive, regardless of whether you authorized the Sender to send them to you.
We will use reasonable efforts to complete all your Payment Instructions properly. However, we shall incur no liability if we are unable to complete any transaction because of the existence of any one or more of the circumstances described in the "Our Liability" subsection within the Electronic Fund Transfers section above, or if the payment is refused as described in the "Payment Cancellation, Stop Payment Requests and Refused Payments" section below.
It is the responsibility of the Sender and the Receiver to ensure the accuracy of any information that they enter into the Popmoney Payment Service (including, but not limited to, the Payment Instructions and name, telephone number and/or email address for the Receiver to whom you are attempting to send a payment), and for informing us as soon as possible if they become aware that this information is inaccurate. We will make a reasonable effort to stop or recover a payment made to the wrong person or entity once informed, but we do not guarantee such stoppage or recovery and will bear no responsibility or liability for damages resulting from incorrect information entered by the Sender or Receiver.
Initiation of Payment Instructions. You may initiate (a) a one-time Payment Instruction to a Receiver for which processing shall be initiated immediately, (b) a one-time Payment Instruction to a Receiver for which processing shall be initiated at a later specified date up to one (1) year, and (c) a recurring series of Payment Instructions to a Receiver for which processing shall be initiated on the specified dates. Further details about each of these options can be found on the Site. Payment Instructions initiated to Receivers are processed in one of two ways. You can provide all the required information about the Receiver, including his/her Eligible Transaction Account, necessary to complete a transfer of funds. Alternatively, you can provide contact information about the Receiver (including an email address and/or mobile telephone number), and the Popmoney Payment Service may contact the Receiver and request that the Receiver (i) provide information so that we may validate the identity of the Receiver at the Popmoney Website and then (ii) provide Eligible Transaction Account information in order to complete the Payment Instruction (a "Two-Step Transfer"). If the Receiver maintains an Eligible Transaction Account with an institution that participates in or offers the Popmoney Payment Service, the Receiver may access the Popmoney Payment Service at his or her financial institution"s website or mobile application to complete the Payment Instruction and receive the payment.
You understand and agree that when you initiate a Payment Instruction from an Eligible Transaction Account using the Popmoney Payment Service, the processing of the Payment Instruction will begin and the debiting of your Eligible Transaction Account will occur as early as the day of such initiation. The payment funds will be transferred into the Receiver"s Eligible Transaction Account no earlier than the next Business Day after you initiated the Payment Instruction. If you request a one-time Payment Instruction to be initiated on a specified date or a recurring series of Payment Instructions to be initiated on specified dates, then the processing of the Payment Instruction will begin on the specified date and the debiting of your Eligible Transaction Account will occur as early as the specified date(s). The payment funds will be transferred into the Receiver"s Eligible Transaction Account no earlier than the next Business Day following the specified date. In addition, in the case of all Two-Step Transfers, the deposit of the payment funds into the Receiver"s Eligible Transaction Account (even if debited or withdrawn from your Eligible Transaction Account) may be delayed if the Receiver has not provided the Popmoney Payment Service with certain required information such as his or her Eligible Transaction Account information. The Site may contain additional information regarding the delivery of a payment to an Eligible Transaction Account.
You acknowledge and agree that we will begin to process the requested transfer of funds once the Receiver has provided (or we otherwise obtain) all required information, and you hereby authorize and direct us to retain such funds until the earlier of such time as the Receiver has provided (or we otherwise obtain) all required information or ten (10) Business Days. You further acknowledge and agree that our receipt of money to be transmitted to a Receiver shall not be deemed to have occurred and our obligation to complete a Payment Instruction shall not begin until such time as the Receiver provides us with (or we otherwise obtain) all required information necessary to process the related Payment Instruction in accordance with this Agreement. Any cancellation of a Payment Instruction prior to the Receiver providing us with such information shall be subject to the provisions of the "Payment Cancellation, Stop Payment Requests and Refused Payments" section below.
Receiving Payments. If another person wants to initiate a Payment Instruction (including in response to a Popmoney Request, if applicable) using the Popmoney Payment Service to an Eligible Transaction Account you hold or, as applicable, if you as a Requestor want to initiate a Popmoney Request, he, she or you can do that from the Site or from an Eligible Transaction Account at a financial institution that participates in the Popmoney Payment Service or at the Popmoney Website.
You understand and agree that there may be a delay between the time you are notified of the pending Payment Instruction and the deposit of the payment funds into your Eligible Transaction Account, and you may be required to take additional steps to facilitate the deposit of the payment of funds into your Eligible Transaction Account. You authorize the Sender, the financial institution which holds the Sender"s Eligible Transaction Account and us (including through the Site) to send emails to you and text messages to your mobile phone in connection with the Sender"s initiation of Payment Instructions to you, and, as a Receiver, you may also receive Popmoney Requests from others through the Popmoney Payment Service.
You acknowledge and agree that in the event that funds are transferred into your Eligible Transaction Account as a result of a Payment Instruction and it is determined that such transfer was improper because it was not authorized by the Sender, because there were not sufficient funds in the Sender"s account, or for any other reason, then you hereby authorize us or our Service Provider to withdraw from your Eligible Transaction Account an amount equal to the amount of funds improperly transferred to you.
If applicable, if you as a Requestor initiate a Popmoney Request using the Popmoney Payment Service, you acknowledge and agree that, as disclosed on the Site, (a) the applicable service fee will be deducted from payments received by you from a Sender(s), and (b) no service fee will be charged if you as the Requestor do not receive any payments from the individuals to whom the Popmoney Request is sent. Further details about the foregoing can be found on the Site. You acknowledge and agree that individuals to whom you send a Popmoney Request may not receive, or otherwise may reject or ignore, your Popmoney Request. We do not guarantee that you will receive any payments from individuals by initiating a Popmoney Request.
Payment Cancellation, Stop Payment Requests and Refused Payments. Sender may cancel the initiation of a Payment Instruction or stop a Payment Instruction at any time until the processing of the Payment Instruction into the Receiver"s Eligible Transaction Account has begun. Our ability to stop a Payment Instruction or recover funds associated with an unauthorized Payment Instruction will depend on the manner in which the Payment Instruction was initiated, and whether the Payment Instruction to the Receiver"s Eligible Transaction Account has begun processing. Although we will make a reasonable effort to accommodate a stop payment request and to recover funds associated with an unauthorized Payment Instruction, we will have no liability for failing to do so. We may also require you to present your stop payment request or request to recover funds in writing within fourteen (14) days after contacting our Member Service Contact Center. If we charge you to stop the payment or recover funds, then the charge for each stop payment or fund recovery request will be the current charge as set out in our Fee Schedule. Payments not claimed by a Receiver will be automatically cancelled ten (10) days after the processing of the payment begins. When a Sender initiates a Payment Instruction, the Receiver is not required to accept the payment. You agree that you as a Sender will not hold us liable for any damages resulting from a Receiver"s decision to accept or not to accept a Payment Instruction initiated or attempted through the Popmoney Payment Service. We will, to the extent permitted by law, make reasonable attempts to return any unclaimed, refused, refunded, prohibited, or denied payment to your Eligible Transaction Account or use other reasonable efforts to return such payment to you as permitted by law.
Mobile Phone Users. Your phone service provider is not the provider of the Popmoney Payment Service. Users of the Popmoney Payment Service will receive text messages relating to their Payment Instructions and other notices from time to time if a mobile phone number is provided. Data and messaging charges from your telecommunications provider may apply, and you are responsible for any such charges. In the event your enrolled mobile device is lost or stolen, you agree to update your enrollment information and make the appropriate changes to disable the use of such device. You understand that there are risks associated with using a mobile device, and that in the event of theft or loss, your confidential information could be compromised. If you have questions about mobile service for the Popmoney Payment Service, you may send a text message with the word "HELP" to this number: 767666. To stop receiving text messages on your mobile phone of the Popmoney Payment Service, text "STOP" to this number: 767666.
Popmoney Payment Service Fees and Additional Charges. You are responsible for paying all fees associated with your use of the Popmoney Payment Service. Applicable fees will be disclosed in the user interface for, or elsewhere within, the Popmoney Payment Service or Site. YOU FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT ANY APPLICABLE FEES WILL BE CHARGED REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE PAYMENT INSTRUCTION IS COMPLETED, UNLESS THE FAILURE TO COMPLETE THE INSTRUCTION IS SOLELY DUE TO OUR FAULT, except for those fees that are specifically use-based, such as Popmoney Requests, if applicable. There may be a charge for additional transactions and other optional services. You agree to pay such charges and authorize us to deduct the calculated amount from your designated Eligible Transaction Account for these amounts and any additional charges that may be incurred by you. Any financial fees associated with your standard deposit accounts (or other Eligible Transaction Accounts) will continue to apply. You are responsible for any and all telephone access fees and Internet service fees that may be assessed by your telephone and Internet service provider. The "Failed Or Returned Payment Instructions" section of the General Terms below applies if you do not pay our fees and charges for the Popmoney Payment Service, including, without limitation, if we debit the Eligible Transaction Account for such fees, as described in this section, and there are insufficient fees in the Eligible Transaction Account.
Refused Payments. We reserve the right to refuse to pay any Receiver. We will attempt to notify the Sender promptly if we decide to refuse to pay a Receiver designated by the Sender.
Returned Payments. In using the Popmoney Payment Service, you understand that Receivers may reject Payment Instructions or otherwise return payments. We will use reasonable efforts to complete Payment Instructions initiated through the Popmoney Payment Service.
Payment Methods. We may, in our sole discretion, impose limits on the amount of money sent or received through the Popmoney Payment Service. We also reserve the right to select the method in which to remit funds on the Sender"s behalf, and the method to return funds to the Sender in the event that the Receiver"s Transaction Account is closed or otherwise unavailable to us. These payment methods may include, but may not be limited to, an electronic payment or an electronic to check payment.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT BECAUSE OF THE NATURE OF THE INTERNET AND WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS, PRIVACY IN YOUR COMMUNICATIONS CANNOT BE GUARANTEED, AND YOU SHOULD CONSIDER THIS FACT BEFORE TRANSMITTING CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION OR ANY OTHER INFORMATION THROUGH MOBILE BANKING.
Description. We offer the Mobile Deposit Service for the conversion of Checks to Imaged Items, which enables members to electronically transmit images of paper checks to us for processing and provisional deposit into a Golden 1 checking or savings account. All references within this section to an "Account" refer to the checking or savings account maintained at Golden 1 used for the Mobile Deposit Service. To enroll in the Mobile Deposit Service, you must be a member of Golden 1 and have an Account in good standing that is eligible for the Mobile Deposit Service. We will determine whether you are eligible for the Mobile Deposit Service in our sole discretion. You will capture digitized images of Checks using equipment or a Supported Mobile Device which will ensure that the scanned checks are compatible with the Mobile Deposit Service. You shall transmit electronic images of your scanned checks to us as provided in the Deposit Instructions.
To be eligible for the Mobile Deposit Service, you are required to maintain one or more Accounts in good standing in accordance with the requirements of the C-36 and all applicable Account agreements for the receipt of deposits. You will only submit Items for processing to us that meet the definition of "Item" below and will ensure the Items scanned meet the industry file format standard for image quality, or other standards established by us, regulatory agency, clearing house, association, or applicable law. The image of any Item must be legible.
You will not process any Non-Qualifying Items. The processing of any Non-Qualifying Items by us shall not constitute a waiver by us or obligate us to process such Non-Qualifying Items in the future. We may discontinue processing of Non-Qualifying Items at any time, without cause or prior notice.
You will only use the Mobile Deposit Service for your own purposes in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in this section ("Mobile Deposit Terms and Conditions"). The Mobile Deposit Service will not be used on behalf of any business, corporation, proprietorship or other business entity, or for any business purpose.
You will not attempt to scan and transmit to us any previously truncated and reconverted Substitute Check. Any previously truncated and reconverted Substitute Check must be physically deposited with us. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may redeposit any returned Substitute Check or Image Exchange Item consistent with the terms of these Mobile Deposit Terms and Conditions.
You will (i) ensure Items are restrictively endorsed or otherwise processed to permit only financial institutions to acquire rights of a holder in due course in the collection process of Items, (ii) handle, process, maintain and destroy Original Checks as set forth herein and in the Deposit Instructions, and (iii) ensure no financial institution (depositary, collecting or payor), drawee, drawer or endorser receives presentment or return of, or otherwise is charged for an Item more than once in any form. You agree to use the Mobile Deposit Service, including the entering, processing and transmittal of Imaged Items, in accordance with the Deposit Instructions.
You will provide, at your own expense, a Supported Mobile Device with a data plan permitting an Internet connection and web access issued through a wireless carrier, and install the corresponding Mobile Application for the particular Supported Mobile Device. You will provide, or obtain from another party selected by you at your expense, support and maintenance of the Internet connection and web access and all other requirements required to use the Mobile Deposit Service, including, without limitation, troubleshooting Internet or wireless connectivity issues with your mobile carrier, and we will not be responsible therefor.
You understand and acknowledge that transmitting an Item does not mean we received the Item. You shall be responsible for verifying our receipt of your transmission(s) by verifying that deposits have been posted to the appropriate Accounts, in addition to cooperating in any investigation and resolving any unsuccessful or lost transmission with us. We are not responsible for Items we do not receive or for images dropped during transmission.
You shall exercise due care in preserving the confidentiality of any Security Credential, or other code or authentication method provided by us or otherwise required for use of the Mobile Deposit Service and shall further prevent the use of the Mobile Deposit Service by unauthorized persons. You assume full responsibility for the consequences of any missing or unauthorized use of or access to the Mobile Deposit Service or disclosure of any Confidential Information or instructions by you and your agents.
You will retain each Original Check in accordance with the Deposit Instructions. If not directed otherwise by us, you will store Original Checks in a safe and secure environment for a minimum of five (5) Business Days, but no longer than ninety (90) days after such Item has been digitized and processed. You shall take appropriate security measures to ensure: (a) only you have access to Original Checks, and (b) the information contained on such Original Checks or on any corresponding Imaged Items is not disclosed to third parties. You will promptly (but in any event within five (5) Business Days) provide any retained Original Check to us as requested to aid in the clearing and collection process. You will use a secure and irretrievable method, which is consistent with our requirements, to destroy Original Checks after the applicable retention period has expired.
You understand and agree an Item not paid by a Payor Financial Institution, or otherwise returned for any reason, will be returned to you and your Account will be charged for the amount of the Item plus any associated fee as disclosed in our Fee Schedule. Our right to charge your Account will apply without regard to whether the Item is timely returned to us or whether there is any other claim or defense the Item has been improperly returned to us.
You represent, agree and warrant to us (except as otherwise specifically disclosed in writing to us) that you are not now engaged, and will not during the term of these Mobile Deposit Terms and Conditions, engage in any business resulting in you being or becoming a "money service business" as defined in the federal Bank Secrecy Act and its implementing regulations. You will not engage in any illegal, fraudulent or gambling activity directly or indirectly related to the use of the Mobile Deposit Service.
You will install all software related to the Mobile Deposit Service in accordance with any instructions from us, and will install and implement any changes and upgrades to the software related to the Mobile Deposit Service as we may require from time to time.
You agree to maintain reasonable network and device security. You further agree to maintain network security that conforms to generally recognized information security industry standards and best practices. You understand that your failure to maintain reasonable network and device security may allow an unauthorized party to access the Mobile Deposit Service and transmit an Item for deposit. All uses of the Mobile Deposit Service through your security credentials will be deemed to be uses authorized by you and be binding upon you. You assume the entire risk for the fraudulent or unauthorized use of your security credentials. You agree to notify us immediately if you become aware of any loss or theft of, or any unauthorized use of the Mobile Deposit Service.
We reserve the right to impose the limitations on the amount(s) and number of deposits that you may transmit using the Mobile Deposit Service and to modify such limitations from time to time. You will not electronically present items exceeding the limitations established by us for the Mobile Deposit Service, in our sole discretion. You acknowledge that we may reject any items exceeding our limitations. If we accept an Item exceeding these limitations, that acceptance shall not constitute a waiver by us or obligate us to accept items exceeding the limitations in the future.
Mobile Deposit Service. Subject to subsection 6(b) below, your Account will be provisionally credited upon our verification of Imaged Items for deposit which are received by us from you through the Mobile Deposit Service. You will create images of Checks through the use of a Supported Mobile Device. You will enter all amounts and any other required information correctly. The Imaged Items will be transmitted by you to us through the Mobile Application for the Mobile Deposit Service. You will maintain the appropriate Account with us for you to receive credit and provide other specific information required by us related to the Mobile Deposit Service. As set forth in subsection 6(b) below, all deposits received by us are accepted subject to verification and final inspection and may be rejected by us in our sole discretion. All deposits are subject to these Mobile Deposit Terms and Conditions.
Compliance with Law. You shall comply with all federal and state laws, rules, and regulations applicable to you and to the Mobile Deposit Service, including, but not limited to Regulation CC, the UCC, the Bank Secrecy Act, the USA PATRIOT Act, and any rules established by an image exchange network through which Image Exchange Items are processed pursuant to these Mobile Deposit Terms and Conditions.
Our Rights and Responsibilities.
For all Imaged Items processed by you pursuant to these Mobile Deposit Terms and Conditions, either (i) digitized images will be converted to Substitute Checks and presented for payment to established Endpoints, or (ii) Image Exchange Items will be presented for payment through image exchange networks. We may in our sole discretion determine the manner of processing. All such processing and presentment shall be done in accordance with timeframes and deadlines set forth in the Deposit Instructions and as otherwise established by us from time to time.
Unless otherwise agreed, we will process any returned Items in accordance with applicable laws and these Mobile Deposit Terms and Conditions.
We may, in our sole discretion, with or without cause, at any time and from time to time, refuse to process any Imaged Items. We may from time to time establish exposure limitations and assign them to you.
In addition to any other rights we may have regarding your Accounts, we may hold and use funds in any Account following termination of these Mobile Deposit Terms and Conditions for such time as we reasonably determine necessary to cover any loss, liability, cost, exposure or other action for which it may be responsible.
We 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 our control. In the event of any of the foregoing failures or delays, you acknowledge you may instead deposit directly with us any Original Items for processing and presentment provided such Original Items have not been previously imaged and processed in connection with the Mobile Deposit Service. In addition, we shall be excused from failing to transmit or delay in transmitting an Item for presentment if such transmittal would result in us having exceeded any limitation upon our intraday net funds position established pursuant to the Federal Reserve guidelines or if we are otherwise violating any provision of any risk control program of the Federal Reserve or any rule or regulation of any other U.S. governmental regulatory authority.
To secure all your obligations to us arising from these Mobile Deposit Terms and Conditions, you agree to grant to us a security interest in all your Accounts at Golden 1, all funds in those Accounts, all Items, whether now or hereafter established by or for your benefit at Golden 1, and all proceeds of the foregoing. Our security interest will survive after termination of these Mobile Deposit Terms and Conditions. This security interest is supplemental to and not in lieu of the security interest granted by you to us under any other agreement.
We may add, delete or change the features or functions of the Mobile Deposit Service at any time in its sole discretion. If we deem it reasonably practicable to do so and if the change adversely affects your usage of the Mobile Deposit Service, we will notify you of the change in advance. Otherwise, we will notify you of the change as soon as reasonably practicable after it is implemented, which notice may be given electronically. We may cause the Mobile Deposit Service to be temporarily unavailable to you, either with or without prior notice, for site maintenance, security or other reasons, and you acknowledge factors beyond our reasonable control, such as telecommunications failure or equipment failure, may also cause the Mobile Deposit Service to be unavailable. You may deposit Original Checks and other items to any Account at Golden 1 in person or in any other manner permitted by agreement between you and us, and you will be responsible for maintaining procedures to enable you to do so if the Mobile Deposit Service is unavailable.
We will provisionally accept for deposit to the designated Account Items that are transmitted to us in compliance with this Agreement. Items must be received in a form that is complete, usable, and adhere to the specifications of this Agreement. If the Items are not complete, distorted, altered or corrupted, or do not adhere to specifications, we may refuse to process them.
Processing Times and Funds Availability.
The Mobile Deposit Service is available for use 24 hours a day, seven days a week, except during maintenance periods, or such other hours as established by us from time to time. Items will be reviewed and posted within one Business Day. Items will not be considered "received" until after review and approval by Golden 1as set forth in subsections (b) and (c) below.
Imaged Items processed for deposit through the Mobile Deposit Service will be deemed to have been received by us for deposit at the time the Imaged Items are actually received and accepted at the location where Golden 1 or its designated agent posts the credit to the Account. A deposit of an Imaged Item will be deemed to have been received and accepted by us for deposit when all of the following have occurred: (i) we have preliminarily verified the image quality of the Imaged Items is acceptable to us in our discretion, all Item information is complete and the amount is accurate to the Item information; and (ii) we have successfully performed all further validation routines with respect to the deposit. Items will not be deemed deposited until after they are posted to your Account and visible through the online and mobile Account history. You agree that the transmitting of a check image to us using the Mobile Deposit Service does not constitute receipt by us. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Imaged Items received by us for deposit may be rejected by us in our sole discretion.
Funds deposited may not be available for immediate withdrawal. Availability of credit from Items processed under these Mobile Deposit Terms and Conditions will be subject to our availability schedule set forth in the C-36 provided to you, which may be amended by us as provided therein.
Items will be processed and ready for presentment by us after we receive all good digitized images and associated data for any given transmission from you. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to present Items for payment to the applicable Endpoint within a reasonable period of time following such receipt.
If under subsection (b) above an Imaged Item is not accepted for deposit, you may then submit the Original Check to us for processing or contact the maker to reissue the Check. If you submit the Original Check for processing, we reserve the right to refuse to process the Check for deposit and presentment to the Payor Financial Institution.
Your Representations and Warranties. You make the following representations and warranties with respect to each Item, including Non-Qualifying Items, processed by you pursuant to these Mobile Deposit Terms and Conditions:
