Mobile Remote Deposit Services Agreement

"You" and "your" refers to the member(s) who agree to the conditions contained in this Agreement. "Us" and "our" refer to Central One Federal Credit Union. "Mobile Deposit" refers to the services covered by this Agreement.

Mobile Deposit is designed to allow you to make deposits of original checks in your possession and made payable to you ("original checks") to your accounts from home or other remote locations by electronically capturing the original checks and delivering the digital images and associated deposit information from those checks ("images") to us or our processor with your Mobile Device. After you login to Mobile App, you may apply for Mobile Deposit.

Eligible items. You agree to only electronically capture and deposit checks ( i.e. , drafts drawn on a credit union, savings and loan or bank and payable on demand).

You agree that you will not use Mobile Deposit to deposit:

  • Checks initially payable to any person or entity other than you or payable to you and another payee who is not a joint owner of the account into which the deposit is being made (i.e., no checks initially payable to another party and then endorsed to you).
  • Checks that contain evidence of alteration, or that you know or suspect, or should know or suspect, are fraudulent or otherwise not authorized by the owner of the account on which the check is drawn.
  • Checks stamped with a "non-negotiable" watermark.
  • Checks issued by a financial institution in a foreign country.
  • Any check that is incomplete.
  • Any check that is "stale-dated" (greater than 6 months old) or "post-dated" (dated after the current date).

Requirements. To utilize the service, a mobile phone enabled with a camera and browser access is required. Members are required to have a checking account to utilize the service. Each image must provide all information on the front and back of the original check at the time presented to you by the drawer, including, but not limited to, information about the drawer and the paying bank that is preprinted on the original check, MICR/encoding information, signature(s), any required identification written on the front of the original check and any endorsements applied to the back of the original check. The image quality must meet the standards established by the American National Standards Institute, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, and any other regulatory agency, clearing house or association.

Endorsements must be made on the back of the share draft or check. Your endorsement must include your signature, your account number and "FOR MOBILE DEPOSIT ONLY". Any loss we incur from a delay or processing error resulting from an irregular endorsement or other markings by you will be your responsibility.

If the check is payable to you or your joint owner, either of you can endorse it. If the check is made payable to you and your joint owner, both of you must endorse the check.

Receipt of Deposit. All images processed for deposit through Mobile Deposit will be treated as "deposits" under your current Membership and Account Agreement with us and will be subject to all terms of the Membership and Account Agreement and monetary transactional limits. When we receive an image, we will confirm receipt with a confirmation number within the application. We shall not be deemed to have received the image for deposit until we have confirmed receipt to you. Confirmation does not mean that the image contains no errors. We are not responsible for any image that we do not receive.

Following receipt, we may process the image by preparing a "substitute check" or clearing the item as an image.

We reserve the right, at our sole and absolute discretion, to reject any image for remote deposit into your account. We will notify you of rejected images.

Original checks. After you receive your confirmation within the application that we have received an image, you must securely store (such as in a locked drawer or safe) the original check for 30 days after transmission to us and make the original check accessible to us at our request. Upon our request from time to time, you will deliver to us within 10 business days, at your expense, the requested original check in your possession. If the original check is not provided in a timely manner, such amount will be reversed from your account. Promptly after such period expires, you must destroy the original check by first marking it "VOID" and then destroying it by cross-cut shredding or another commercially acceptable means of destruction. After destruction of an original check, the image will be the sole evidence of the original check. Images will retained by us for research for a period of time not less than 7 years.

You agree that you will never re-present the original check. You understand that you are responsible if anyone is asked to make a payment based on an original check that has already been paid.

Returned Deposits. Any credit to your account for checks deposited using Mobile Deposit is provisional. If original checks deposited through Mobile Deposit are dishonored, rejected or otherwise returned unpaid by the drawee bank, or are rejected or returned by a clearing agent or collecting bank, for any reason, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the quality of the image, you agree that an original check will not be returned to you, but that we may charge back the amount of the original check and provide you with an image of the original check, a paper reproduction of the original check or a substitute check. At our discretion, returned items may be re-deposited for processing at which time a returned item fee will be applied to your account per item. Please refer to the fee schedule for details. You will reimburse us for all loss, cost, damage or expense caused by or relating to the processing of the returned item. Without our approval, you shall not attempt to deposit or otherwise negotiate an original check if it has been charged back to you.

We may debit any of your accounts to obtain payment for any item that has been rejected or returned, for any adjustment related to such item or for any warranty claim related to such item, whether or not the rejection, return, adjustment or warranty claim was made timely.

Your Warranties. You make the following warranties and representations with respect to each image:

  • Each image 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.
  • The amount, payee(s), signature(s), date, MICR line, and endorsement(s) on the image and on the original check are legible, genuine, and accurate.
  • You will not deposit or otherwise endorse to a third party the original check and no person will receive a transfer, presentment, or return of, or otherwise be charged for, the original check or a paper or electronic representation of the original check such that the person will be asked to make payment based on an original check that has already been paid.
  • There are no other duplicate images of the original check.
  • The original check was authorized by the drawer in the amount stated on the original check and to the payee(s) stated on the original check.
  • You are authorized to enforce each check transmitted or to obtain payment of each check on behalf of a person entitled to enforce such transmitted check.
  • You have possession of the original check, and no party will submit the original check for payment.

With respect to each image, you make to us all representations and warranties that we make or are deemed to make to any party pursuant to law, regulation or clearinghouse rule. You agree that files and images transmitted to us will contain no viruses or any other disabling features that may have an adverse impact on our network, data, or related systems.
