This Electronic Funds Transfer Agreement is the contract which covers your and our rights and responsibilities concerning the electronic funds transfer (“EFT”) services offered to you by Genco Federal Credit Union. In this Agreement, the words “you” and “yours” mean those who sign the application or account card as applicants, joint owners, or any authorized users. The words “we,” “us,” and “our” mean the Credit Union. The word “account” means any one or more savings and checking accounts you have with the Credit Union. Electronic funds transfers are electronically initiated transfers of money from your account through the electronic funds transfer services described below. By signing an application or account card for EFT services, signing your Card, or using any service, each of you, jointly and severally, agree to the terms and conditions in this Agreement and any amendments for the EFT services offered.

1. EFT Services. If approved, you may conduct the following EFT service offered by GENCO Federal Credit Union.

a. NetBranch Electronic/PC EFTs. If we approve the NetBranch electronic/PC access service for your accounts, a separate password will be assigned to you. You must use your password along with your account number to access your accounts. At the present time, you may use the NetBranch access service to:

• Withdraw funds from your savings and checking accounts.
• Make loan payments from your savings and checking accounts.
• Access your Line of Credit account.
• Determine if a particular item has cleared.
• Obtain tax information on amounts earned on savings and checking accounts or interest paid on loan accounts.
• Verify the last date and amount of your payroll deposit.

Your accounts can be accessed under the NetBranch electronic/PC access service via personal computer. NetBranch service will be available for your convenience twenty-four (24) hours per day. This service may be interrupted for a short time each day for data processing or other routine maintenance. We reserve the right to refuse any transaction which would draw upon insufficient funds, exceed a credit limit, lower an account below a required balance, or otherwise require us to increase our required reserve on the account. All checks are payable to you as a primary member and will be mailed to your address of record. We may set other limits on the amount of any transaction, and you will be notified of those limits. We may refuse to honor any transaction for which you do not have sufficient available verified funds. The service will discontinue if no transaction is entered after numerous unsuccessful attempts to enter a transaction, and there may be limits on the duration of each access.

1. There is no limit to the number of inquiries, transfers, or withdrawal requests you may make in any one day.
2. See Section 2 for transfer limitations that may apply to these transactions.

2. Transfer Limitations.

For all savings and Money Market accounts, no more than six (6) preauthorized, automatic, telephone, or Internet transfers and withdrawals may be made from each account to another account of yours or to a third party in any month, and no more than three (3) of these six (6) may be made by check, draft, or access card to a third party. If you exceed these limitations, your account may be subject to a fee or be closed.

3. Conditions of EFT Services.

a. Security of Access Code. You may use access codes with your electronic funds transfers. The access codes issued to you are for your security purposes. Any codes issued to you are confidential and should not be disclosed to third parties. You are responsible for safekeeping your access code. You agree not to disclose or otherwise make your access codes available to anyone not authorized to sign on your accounts. If you authorize anyone to use your access code, that authority shall continue until you specifically revoke such authority by notifying the Credit Union. You understand that any joint owner you authorize to use an access code may withdraw or transfer funds from any of your accounts. If you fail to maintain the security of these access codes and the GENCO FCU suffers a loss, we may terminate your EFT services immediately.

b. Joint Accounts. If any of your accounts accessed under this Agreement are joint accounts, all joint owners, including any authorized users, shall be bound by this Agreement and, alone and together, shall be responsible for all EFT transactions to or from any savings and checking or loan accounts as provided in this Agreement. Each joint account owner, without the consent of any other account owner, may, and hereby is authorized by every other joint account owner to, make any transaction permitted under this Agreement. Each joint account owner is authorized to act for the other account owners, and the Credit Union may accept orders and instructions regarding any EFT transaction on any account from any joint account owner.

4. Fees and Charges.

There are certain fees and charges for electronic funds transfer services. For a current listing of all applicable fees, see our current Fee Schedule that was provided to you at the time you applied for or requested these electronic services. From time to time, the charges may be changed. We will notify you of any changes as required by applicable law.

5. Member Liability.

You are responsible for all transactions you authorize using your EFT services under this Agreement. If you permit someone else to use an EFT service, your access code, you are responsible for any transactions they authorize or conduct on any of your accounts. However, TELL US AT ONCE if you believe your access code has been lost or stolen or if you believe someone has used your access code or otherwise accessed your accounts without your permission. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit).

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 to you, you may not get back any money lost after the sixty (60) days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from making the transfers if you had told us in time. If a good reason (such as a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods. If you believe your access code has been lstolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, call:

(254) 776-9550
(800) 922-6428
Fax: (254) 776-4633

6. Right to Receive Documentation.

a. Periodic Statements. Transfers and withdrawals made through electronic/PC transactions will be recorded on your periodic statement. You will receive a statement monthly unless there is no transaction in a particular month. In any case, you will receive a statement at least quarterly.

7. Account Information Disclosure.

We will disclose information to third parties about your account or the transfers you make:

1. As necessary to complete transfers;
2. To verify the existence of sufficient funds to cover specific transactions upon the request of a third party, such as a credit bureau or merchant;
3. If your account is eligible for emergency cash and/or emergency card replacement services, and you request such services, you agree that we may provide personal information about you and your account that is necessary to provide you with the requested services(s).
4. To comply with government agency or court orders; or
5. If you give us your written permission

8. Business Days.

Our business days are Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

9. Credit Union Liability for Failure to Make Transfers.

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 or damages. However, we will not be liable for direct or consequential damages in the following events:

1. If, through no fault of ours, there is not enough money in your accounts to complete the transaction, if any funds in your accounts necessary to complete the transaction are held as uncollected funds pursuant to our Funds Availability Policy, or if the transaction involves a loan request exceeding your credit limit.
2. If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire, flood, or power failure) prevent the transaction.
3. If the money in your account is subject to legal process or other claim.
4. If funds in your account are pledged as collateral or frozen because of a delinquent loan.
5. If the electronic transfer is not completed as a result of your willful or negligent use of your access code or any EFT facility for making such transfers.
6. If the telephone or computer equipment you use to conduct electronic/PC transactions is not working properly and you know or should have known about the breakdown when you started the transaction.
7. Any other exceptions as established by the Credit Union.

10. Notices.
All notices from us will be effective when we have mailed them or delivered them to your last known address in the Credit Union’s records. Notices from you will be effective when received by the Credit Union at the address specified in this Agreement. We reserve the right to change the terms and conditions upon which this service is offered. We will mail notice to you at least twenty-one (21) days before the effective date of any change.

* If you give notice of an error within thirty (30) days after you make the first deposit to your account, we will have twenty (20) business days instead of ten (10) business days.

** If you give notice of an error within thirty (30) days after you make the first deposit to your account, notice of an error involving a point of sale transaction, or notice of an error involving a transaction initiated outside the U.S. its possessions and territories, we will have ninety (90) days instead of forty-five (45) days to investigate.

12. Termination of EFT Services.

You may terminate this Agreement or any EFT service under this Agreement at any time by notifying us in writing and stopping your use of your access code. We may also terminate this Agreement at any time by notifying you orally or in writing.
