This Agreement governs the use of Bison Federal Credit Union's Internet Banking Service, jointly referred to as the "Service," provided by Bison Federal Credit Union, also referred to as “BFCU". By using the Service to conduct transactions, you agree to the terms of this Agreement. Definitions As used in this Agreement, "account" and "accounts" mean the BFCU account in which you are either the owner or joint owner. "Loan account" and "loan accounts" mean any loan you have with the Credit Union. "You," "your," and "yours" mean the person(s) using the Service. "We," "our," us," and "Credit Union" refer to the individual Credit Union (Bison Federal Credit Union) that holds your accounts. Deposit and Credit Agreements The terms and conditions in this Agreement shall have priority and take precedence over any existing terms and conditions in existing account and loan agreements you have with us in the event of a conflict. Required Equipment In order to use the Internet Banking Service, you need a computer (in this Agreement, your computer and the related equipment are referred to together as your "Computer") with a web browser (either Netscape Navigator 4.0 or higher, Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 or higher), a member number, and Internet Banking PIN. The PIN is the confidential personal identification number you use to access your account(s) through Internet Banking. You are responsible for the installation, maintenance, and operation of your Computer, browser and the software. BFCU is not responsible for any errors or failures from any malfunction of your Computer, the browser or the software. BFCU is also not responsible for any computer virus or related problems that may be associated with the use of an online system. The Service To use Internet Banking, you must have at least one BFCU personal share account and an Internet Banking PIN. Through Internet Banking, you will have access to any of your BFCU share accounts or loan accounts. Bison Federal Credit Union reserves the right to deny access to a deposit account or loan account or to deny transactions under certain circumstances. Description of Internet Banking The Service allows you to perform some or all of the following functions from your Computer: Online Account Access Functions and Limitations of Transfers You may use Internet Banking to (a) transfer funds between your accounts; (b) obtain account balances; (c) obtain history and transaction information on your accounts; and (d) obtain loan account balance information. These features are limited to the extent, and subject to the terms, noted below. i. Your ability to transfer funds between certain accounts is limited by federal law and the Deposit Agreement. You should refer to the Deposit Agreement for legal restrictions and service charges applicable for excessive withdrawals or transfers. Transfers made using the Internet Banking Service are counted against the permissible number of transfers described in the Deposit Agreement. ii. There may be at least a one-business-day delay in transferring funds between your accounts. Except as provided in this Agreement, all Internet Banking transaction instructions received by 6:00 p.m. CST will be completed that business day. Any instruction received after 6:00 p.m. CST will be completed the next business day. iii. Transactional information for your accounts will be available from Internet Banking for a maximum of three statement cycles from the date of inquiry. Personal Identification Number and Security Your Internet Banking personal identification number (PIN) is required to access BFCU’s Internet Banking functions. You agree not to give or make available your PIN to any unauthorized individual. If you believe your PIN has been lost or stolen, someone has attempted to use the Internet Banking Service without your consent, your deposit account(s) or loan account(s) have been accessed, or someone has transferred money without your permission, you must notify Bison Federal Credit Union immediately at 405-275-5014. Bison Federal Credit Union does not maintain a record of your PIN. If you lose or forget your PIN, contact us immediately so that you may select a new confidential PIN. Your Liability for Authorized Transfer You are responsible for all transfers you authorize using your PIN under this agreement. If you disclose your PIN to anyone, you understand that you have given access to your account and that you are responsible for such transaction(s). Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfer Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your account information and/or PIN have been lost or stolen. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your accounts (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit and open-end credit). If you believe your account information and/or PIN has been lost or stolen, and you tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone used your account information and/or PIN without your permission. If you do NOT tell us within two business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your account information and/or PIN, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your account/and or PIN without your permission if you had 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 60 days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 60 days, if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time. Errors and Questions Telephone us 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 the statement. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared. Your inquiry must include: Your name and account number, A description of the error or the transfer you are unsure about and an explanation of why you believe it is an error or why you need more information, The dollar amount of the suspected error, and The date of occurrence. If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days. We will generally tell you the results of our investigation within 10 business days of the receipt of your complaint or question (20 business days if the error involves an electronic fund transfer to or from the account within 30 days after the first deposit to the account was made). If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit you account within 10 business days for the amount you think is in error, so that you have use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 days, we may not credit your account. If we decide there was no error, we will send you a written explanation within three business days after we finish our investigation.
