EASY DEPOSIT (REMOTE DEPOSIT CAPTURE) SERVICES DISCLOSURE AND AGREEMENT
In this Disclosure and Agreement, the words "you" or "your" mean the consumer or business that applied for and/or uses any of the Remote Deposit Capture Services (the "Services") described in this Disclosure and Agreement. The words "the Credit Union" mean Truliant Federal Credit Union. Your Application for use of the Remote Deposit Capture Services, the Credit Union's notification of approval of your application, and your Truliant Federal Credit Union Account Agreement and Truth in Savings Disclosures are hereby incorporated into and made a part of this Disclosure and Agreement. In the event of a discrepancy between this Disclosure and Agreement and your Application, the Credit Union's approval, or the Account Agreement, this Disclosure and Agreement will control.
Use of the Services. Following receipt of the Credit Union's notification approving your use of the Services, you are authorized by the Credit Union to remotely deposit paper checks you receive to your account with the Credit Union (the "Account") by electronically transmitting a digital image of the paper checks to the Credit Union for deposit. Your use of the Services constitutes your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Disclosure and Agreement. You agree to comply with the equipment requirements set forth as Exhibit "A", which is attached hereto and incorporated by this reference. Upon receipt of the digital image, the Credit Union will review the image for acceptability. You understand and agree that receipt of an image does not occur until after the Credit Union notifies you of receipt of the image via the Deposit History feature. You understand that, in the event you receive a notification from the Credit Union confirming receipt of an image, such notification does not mean that the image contains no errors or that the Credit Union is responsible for any information you transmit to the Credit Union. The Credit Union is not responsible for any image that the Credit Union does not receive. Following receipt of the image, the Credit Union may process the image by preparing a "substitute check" or clearing the item as an image. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, the Credit Union reserves the right, within the Credit Union's sole and absolute discretion, to accept or reject any item for remote deposit into your Account. You understand that any amount credited to your Account for items deposited using the Services is a provisional credit and you agree to indemnify the Credit Union against any loss the Credit Union suffers because of the Credit Union's acceptance of the remotely deposited check. In addition you agree that you will not (i) modify, change, alter, translate, create derivative works from, reverse engineer, disassemble or decompile the technology or Services, (ii) copy or reproduce all or any part of the technology or Services; or (iii)interfere, or attempt to interfere, with the technology or Services.
