- Transfers/Withdrawals. You may make transfers from your

to regulation D requirements, transfers from Share, Savings,
My Goal Savings, Little Scholars, Boom!, and Money Market accounts

the Credit Union actually receives your message and has a
reasonable opportunity to act. If you need to contact the
Credit Union immediately regarding an unauthorized transaction
or stop payment request, you may call the Credit Union at
- Security of Password
- Security. The password that you select is for your security
purposes. The password is confidential and should not be disclosed
to third parties or recorded. You are responsible for safekeeping
your password. You agree not to disclose or otherwise make
your password available to anyone not authorized by you to
sign on your accounts. If you authorize anyone to have or
use your password, you understand that person may use Internet
Banking to review all of your account information and make
account transactions. Therefore, we are entitled to act on
transaction instructions received using your password and
you agree that the use of your password will have the same
effect as your signature authorizing transactions.
- Authorization. If you authorize anyone to use your password
in any manner that authority will be considered unlimited
in amount and manner until you specifically revoke such authority
by notifying the Credit Union and changing your password immediately.
You are responsible for any transactions made by such persons
until you notify us that transactions and access by that person
are no longer authorized and your password is changed. If
you fail to maintain or change the security of this password
and the Credit Union suffers a loss, we reserve the right
to terminate your electronic funds transfer and account services
- Member Liability for Unauthorized Transactions. You are responsible
for all Internet Banking transactions you authorize under this
agreement. If you permit someone else to use your password, you
are responsible for any transactions they authorize or conduct
on any of your accounts. However, tell us at once if you believe
someone has used your password or otherwise accessed your accounts
without your authority. Telephoning is the best way to keep your
possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account
(plus your maximum overdraft line of credit). If you believe your
password has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred
or may transfer money from your account without your permission,
contact the main branch telephone number listed below:

Agreement and your Internet Banking services, if you, or any authorized
user of your Internet Banking services or password, breach this
or any other agreement with, or if we have reason to believe that
there has been an unauthorized use of your accounts or password,

or unlawful transaction, or if we reasonably believe your account
conduct poses an undue risk of illegality or unlawfulness.
You or any other party to your account can terminate this Agreement
