Arrowhead Credit Union
MOBILE DEPOSIT - CAPTURE SERVICES DISCLOSURE AND AGREEMENT
Effective: October 2014
In this Disclosure and Agreement, the words “I,” “me,” “my,” “us” and “our” mean, the member that applied for and/or uses any of the Mobile Deposit - Capture Services (the “Services”) described in this Disclosure and Agreement.
The words “you,” “your,” and “yours” mean Arrowhead Credit Union. Other agreements you have entered into with the Credit Union, including Membership Agreements and Disclosures, as amended from time to time, are incorporated into and made a part of this Disclosure and Agreement. In the event of a discrepancy between this Disclosure and Agreement or the Account Agreement, this Disclosure and Agreement will control.
Use of the Services. Following my acceptance of this agreement, I am authorized by you to remotely deposit paper checks through the Mobile Deposit application. I can remotely deposit checks I receive to my account with you (the “Account”) by electronically transmitting a digital image of the paper checks to you for deposit. My use of the Services constitutes my acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Disclosure and Agreement. I agree to comply with the hardware and software requirements set forth by Arrowhead Credit Union (Arrowhead Credit Union iOS 7.0 and Android Application version 4.0 or higher). Upon receipt of the digital image, you will review the image for acceptability. I understand and agree that receipt of an image does not occur until after you notify me of receipt of the image via onscreen messaging. I understand that, in the event an image is received, this does not mean that the image contains no errors. I understand that I am responsible for any information I transmit to you. You are not responsible for any image that you do not receive. Following receipt of the image, you may process the image by preparing a “substitute check” or clearing the item as an image. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, you reserve the right, within your sole and absolute discretion, to accept or reject any item for remote deposit into my Account. I understand that any amount credited to my Account for items deposited using the Services is a provisional credit and I agree to indemnify you against any loss you suffer because of your acceptance of the remotely deposited check. In addition I agree that I will not (i) modify, change, alter, translate, create derivative works from, reverse engineer, disassemble or decompile the technology or Service, (ii) copy or reproduce all or any part of the technology or Service; or (iii) interfere, or attempt to interfere, with the technology or Service.
Compliance with Law. I agree to use the products and Service for lawful purposes and in compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations, as well as all laws pertaining to the conduct of my business if applicable. I warrant that I will only transmit acceptable items for deposit and have handled the original items in accordance with applicable laws, rules and regulations. I promise to indemnify and hold you harmless from any damages, liabilities, costs, expenses (including attorneys’ fees) or other harm arising out of any violation thereof. This indemnity will survive termination of my Account and this Agreement.
Check Requirements. Any image of a check that I transmit to you must accurately and legibly provide all the information on the front and back of the check at the time presented to me by the drawer. Prior to capturing the original check, I will endorse the back of the original check. My endorsement will include the account number to which I am making the deposit, including the share ID and the words FOR MOBILE DEPOSIT. The image of the check transmitted to you must accurately and legibly provide, among other things, the following information: (1) the information identifying the drawer and the paying bank that is pre-printed on the check, including complete and accurate MICR information and the signature(s); and (2) other information placed on the check prior to the time an image of the check is captured, such as any required identification written on the front of the check and any endorsements applied to the back of the check. The image quality for the check will meet the standards for image quality established by the American National Standards Institute (“ANSI”), the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, and any other regulatory agency, clearing house or association.
Rejection of Deposit. You are not liable for any service or late charges levied against me due to your rejection of any item. In all cases, I am responsible for any loss or overdraft plus any applicable fees to your Account due to an item being returned.
Items Returned Unpaid. A written notice will be sent to me of transactions you are unable to process because of returned items. With respect to any item that I transmit to you for remote deposit that you credit to my Account, in the event such item is dishonored, I authorize you to debit the amount of such item from the Account.
Unavailability of Services. I understand and agree that the Services may at times be temporarily unavailable due to the Financial Institution’s system maintenance or technical difficulties including those of the Internet service provider, cellular service provider and Internet software. In the event that the Services are unavailable, I acknowledge that I can deposit an original check at your branches or through your ATMs or by mailing the original check to you at
Arrowhead Credit Union, PO Box 735, San Bernardino, CA 92402. It is my sole responsibility to verify that items deposited using the Services have been received and accepted for deposit by you.

Funds Availability. I agree that items transmitted using this service are not subject to the funds availability requirements of the Federal Reserve Board Regulation CC. Funds deposited using the Services will be available after Arrowhead receives payment for the funds deposited. Arrowhead, in its sole discretion, may make such funds available sooner based on such factors as the length and extent of your relationship with Arrowhead, transaction and experience information, and such other facts as Arrowhead deems relevant. Arrowhead, in its sole discretion, may modify funds availability as it deems relevant.
Special Endorsement Standards. The Federal Law regarding funds availability requires the Financial Institution’s endorsement area on the back of a check be kept clear or unobstructed. This rule is designed to prevent unnecessary delays in processing your deposits as well as to promote speedier returns of dishonored checks. Only the 1-1/2 inch space from the “trailing edge” (the left edge of the check when it is facing you) can be used by you for endorsements or any other markings.
We will not be responsible for any damages incurred in the event you deposit an item that is subsequently returned unpaid by the paying bank and that return is “late” due to markings on the check caused by you or a prior endorser on the back of the check.
In the event that you draw a check on your Checking or Loan Account with us, you are responsible for any delay or misrouting of the check caused by markings placed on the check by you that obscure any depository endorsements placed by us or our agent and you agree to hold the Credit Union harmless and indemnify us from any liability due to such delay or misrouting.
Internal Controls and Audit. Mobile Deposit limits may change at any time without prior notification. Arrowhead Credit Union reserves the right to revoke this service, reject or adjust any deposits upon submission of the imaged items.
Accountholder’s Warranties. I make the following warranties and representations with respect to each image of an original check I transmit to you utilizing the Services:
1) Each image of a check transmitted to you is a true and accurate rendition of the front and back of the original check, without any alteration, and the drawer of the check has no defense against payment of the check.
2) The amount, the payee, signature(s), and endorsement(s) on the original check are legible, genuine, and accurate.
3) I will not deposit or otherwise endorse to a third party the original item (the original check) and no person will receive a transfer, presentment, or return of, or otherwise be charged for, the item (either the original item, or a paper or electronic representation of the original item) such that the person will be asked to make payment based on an item it has already paid.
4) Other than the digital image of an original check that I remotely deposit through your Services, there are no other duplicate images of the original check.
5) I have instituted procedures to ensure that each original check was authorized by the drawer in the amount stated on the original check and to the payee stated on the original check.
6) I am authorized to enforce each item transmitted or am authorized to obtain payment of each item on behalf of a person entitled to enforce such transmitted item.
7) I have not knowingly failed to communicate any material information to you.
8) I have possession of each original check deposited using the Services and no party will submit the original check for payment.
9) Files and images transmitted to you will contain no viruses or any other disabling features that may have an adverse impact on your network, data, or related systems.
Storage of Original Checks. I must securely store each original check that I deposit using the Services for a period of 7 days after transmission to you. After such period expires, I will destroy the original check. I understand and agree that I am responsible for any loss caused by my failure to secure the original checks.
Securing Images on Mobile Devices. When using Mobile Deposit, I understand that check images captured using my mobile device are stored on the device only until the associated deposit has been successfully submitted.

In the event that I am unable to promptly complete my deposit, I agree to ensure that my mobile device remains securely in my possession until the deposit has been completed or to delete the associated images from the application.
Accountholder’s Indemnification Obligation.
