By providing the Credit Union with names and account information of Payees to whom you wish to direct payments, you authorize the Credit Union to follow the Payment Instructions that it receives through the EBillPay service. When the Credit Union receives a Payment Instruction, you authorize the Credit Union and its processing agents to debit your Payment Account and remit funds on your behalf so that the funds arrive as soon as reasonably possible after the Scheduled Payment Date designated by you. You also authorize the Credit Union and its processing agent to credit your Payment Account for payments returned to the Credit Union. The Credit Union will use its best efforts to make all your payments properly. However, the Credit Union shall incur no liability if the Credit Union is unable to complete any payments initiated by you because of the existence of any one or more of the following circumstances:

Available dates will depend on the payment method available for the payee. When scheduling payments you must select a Scheduled Payment Date that is no later than the actual Due Date reflected on your Payee statement unless the Due Date falls on a non-Business Day. If the actual Due Date falls on a non-Business Day, you must select a Scheduled Payment Date that is at least one (1) Business Day before the actual Due Date. Scheduled Payment Dates should be prior to any late date or grace period; we will not be responsible for your late charges if you schedule a Payment Date after your Due Date.
c. Payment Processing.
Transactions are in process starting at the cutoff time on the payment date. A transaction is a pending payment starting from the time you enter payment instructions until the payment is in process. A payment is considered completed when our agent issues the payment either by check or electronically. You may cancel or edit any pending payment (including recurring bill payments) by following the directions provided in the eBillPay system Help. There is no charge for cancelling or editing a Pending Payment. Please note: We may not have a reasonable opportunity to act on any stop payment or cancellation order given after a payment is in process and it is not possible to stop or cancel a payment which is completed. If you desire to cancel or stop any payment which is in process, you must call Mid Oregon Federal Credit Union at (541) 382-1795 or (800) 452-3313.

Although we will make every effort to accommodate your request, we will have no liability for failing to do so.
Single Payments. A single payment will be processed on the business day (generally Monday through Friday, except certain holidays) that you designate as the payment’s process date provided the payment is submitted prior to the daily cut-off time on that date. The daily cut-off time is currently 1:00 p.m. PST. A single payment submitted after the cut-off time on the designated process date will be processed on the next business day. If you designate a non-business date (generally weekends and certain holidays) as the payment’s process date, the payment will be processed on the first business day following the designated process date. We reserve the right to change the cut-off time and we will notify you of any changes.
Recurring Payments. When a recurring payment is processed, it is automatically rescheduled by the system. Based upon your selected frequency settings for the payment, a process date is calculated for the next occurrence of the payment. If the calculated process date is a non-business date (generally weekends and certain holidays), it is adjusted based upon the following rules:
• If the recurring payment‘s “Pay Before” option is selected, the process date for the new occurrence of the payment is adjusted to the first business date prior to the calculated process date.
If your frequency settings for the recurring payment specify the 29th, 30th, or 31st as a particular day of the month for processing and that day does not exist in the month of the calculated process date, then the last calendar day of that month is used as the calculated process date. The system will calculate the Estimated Arrival Date of your payment, this is only an estimate, please allow ample time for your payments to reach your “Payees”.
Cancelling a Payment. A bill payment can be changed or cancelled, any time prior to the Cutoff time on the scheduled process date. A bill payment is "In Process" starting at the Cutoff Time on the Payment Date. A bill payment is a "Pending Payment", starting from the time you enter Payment instructions until the payment is "In Process." A bill payment is considered "In Process" on the Business Day you selected as the scheduled Payment Date. A payment is considered completed when our payment processor issues the payment either by check or electronically.

We reserve the right, without liability, to reject or reverse a bill payment if you fail to comply with the above requirement or any other term of this Agreement. If you do not have sufficient funds in the account and we have not exercised our right to reverse or reject a bill payment, you agree to pay for such payment obligations on demand. You further agree that we may, at our option, charge any of your accounts with the Credit Union to cover such payment obligations.
e. Stop Payment Requests.
The Credit Union’s ability to process a stop payment request will depend on the payment method and whether or not a payment is pending. The Credit Union may not have a reasonable opportunity to act on any stop payment request after a payment has been processed. If you desire to stop any payment that has already been processed, you must contact Customer Service. Although the Credit Union will make every effort to accommodate your request, the Credit Union will have no liability for failing to do so.

The "ACH Network" means the funds transfer system, governed by the NACHA Rules that provides funds transfer services to participating financial institutions You understand that the Credit Union and its agent may originate more than one ACH entry (for example, a paired credit and debit entry) to accomplish the transfer you are requesting or authorizing. These ACH entries may be originated in any sequence (for example, a credit may be provided to you in advance of settlement on a paired debit entry against your account). You authorize us or our agent to resubmit debit entries against your account as needed to fulfill the ACH Transfer you have requested. If there are insufficient funds in the FT account, these multiple transfers may result in multiple overdraft fees. If this is a recurring ACH Transfer, this authorization will continue in full force and effect until such time as you cancel the recurring ACH Transfer as provided below. You agree that such requests made with the External Transfer Service constitute your written authorization for such transfers. You understand that your financial institution may limit the number of transactions that you authorize using your savings accounts.
Reliance on Your Information. We may not investigate discrepancies between account number and names on the account. You agree that we are not responsible to investigate such discrepancies and may execute an ACH Transfer using account number information only, even if the name and the account number do not match. You agree to use a browser or mobile application that at a minimum provides a level of security equivalent to 128-bit RC4 encryption when accessing or using the External Transfer Service to initiate or approve ACH Transfers. If an account of yours has a joint account holder, you represent and warrant that each joint account holder has consented to the ACH Transfer(s), whether sending funds or receiving funds.
Transfer Cut-Off. Funds will be debited the business day after you initiate the transfer and will be credited within three to five business days after you initiate the ACH transfer. However, your specific transaction time may vary from this and we do not guarantee any specific turnaround time for the External Transfer Service. You should check your accounts to see debit or credit of the amounts to confirm the status of funds. The cut-off time for Standard Transfers is 3:00 p.m. Pacific Time. Any standard transfer made after the cut-off time will be initiated the next business day.
Provisional Transfers. You agree that credits to your account are provisional and subject to return or reversal if we receive returns or reversals from the ACH or if we must otherwise reverse an ACH Transfer (including for failure to receive final payment). After we have received final payment on ACH credits, these deposits are referred to as collected items. We also reserve the right to refuse to process or to return all or any funds transferred.
Transfer Limits. Transfer limits are defined at enrollment to the External Transfer Service. These daily and monthly dollar limits apply to the total of all transfers for all accounts linked to the user profile. Any transfer initiated on a day that is not a business day counts toward the applicable limit for the next business day. We may change your transfer limits at any time. Any decrease will be subject to notice, as required by law, but you agree that we may reduce your limits without prior notice upon occurrence of a Disqualifying Event, including: (i) any of your Credit Union accounts are not current or are not in good standing, (ii) you have had an overdraft, an over-limit item, or an item returned for insufficient funds with respect to any Credit Union account during the current or three prior calendar months, or (iii) you have had any prior transfer to or from a non-Credit Union account canceled, revoked, or uncompleted due to insufficient funds, revoked authorization, stopped payments, frozen accounts, or any similar reason.
Modifying or Canceling Transfers. You may not be able to cancel or revoke an ACH Transfer once you have submitted or approved it since processing begins immediately or soon after your approval is received by us. You may stop payment of a recurring ACH transfer orally or in writing at least three business days before the scheduled date of the transfer. If processing has not begun, you may be allowed to cancel or delete ACH transfers from the "History" tab. ACH Transfers with a status of pending may be cancelled; recurring ACH Transfers may be deleted prior to submission of the next transfer. If you close any of your FT Accounts, you are responsible to remove it from the External Transfer Service to avoid any transaction failure and charges related to a failed transaction.
Status E-mail. We may periodically send messages to your primary e-mail address during the external funds transfer process. These messages will provide information pertaining to the trial deposit process, confirm account linkages, and contain status updates for transfers in progress. Primary e-mail address is defined in Mobile Banking and you are responsible for updating the address should it change. E-mail messages regarding the funds transfer process do not contain any non-public personal information and cannot be suppressed.
Our Right to Reject Transfers. We, in our sole and absolute discretion, have the right to reject, reverse, or cancel any ACH Transfer you initiate, and/or restrict or condition your ability to use the External Transfer Service, at any time for any reason or no reason, including but not limited to (a) insufficient funds in an account being debited; (b) suspicious activity; (c) order of any law enforcement agency or other legal process; (d) inability to verify information you or others provide or are asked to provide; (e) providing us with false or inaccurate information; (f) hacking, tampering or impacting the service functionality, availability or security; (g) using the service for unlawful purposes (as determined by us in good faith, but without the need for inquiry); or (h) failing to cooperate with any information request.
f. Limitation of Liability. We will use reasonable efforts to complete all your payment transactions properly. However, we shall incur no liability if we are unable to complete any transaction because of the existence of any one or more of the following circumstances:
- If, through no fault of ours, your account does not contain sufficient funds to complete the payment transaction or the payment transaction would exceed the credit limit of your overdraft account;
- The External Transfer Service is not working properly, and you know or have been advised by us about the malfunction before you execute the payment transaction;
- The funds transfer is refused by the recipient or recipient’s financial institution;
- You have not provided us with the correct information, including but not limited to the correct transfer instructions or account information, or the correct name and address or mobile phone number of the receiver to whom you are initiating a transaction; and/or
- Circumstances beyond our control (such as, but not limited to, fire, flood, network or system down time, issues with the financial institution, or interference from an outside force) prevent the proper execution of the payment transaction and we have taken reasonable precautions to avoid those circumstances.
g. Prohibited Payments. The following types of payments are prohibited and we have the right but not the obligation to monitor for, block and/or reverse such payments:
Payments to or from persons or entities located in prohibited territories;
Payments that violate any law;
Payments for donations or payments to an unauthorized charity or non-profit organization
Payments that violate any terms in this Agreement; and
Payments related to tax or court ordered obligations, gambling, any unlawful activity, or any objectionable purpose as we reasonably determine.

Financial Responsibility. You understand that you remain, solely and exclusively responsible for any and all financial risks, including, without limitation, insufficient funds associated with accessing the Service. The Credit Union shall not be liable in any manner for such risk unless Credit Union fails to follow the procedures described in materials for use of the service. You assume exclusive responsibility for the consequences of any instructions you give to the Credit Union, for your failures to access the Service properly in a manner prescribed by the Credit Union, and for your failure to supply accurate input information, including, without limitation, any information contained in an application.
Account Reconciliation. You will verify and reconcile any out-of-balance condition, and promptly notify the Credit Union of any errors within the time periods established in the Membership and Account Agreement after receipt of your account statement. If notified within such period, the Credit Union shall correct and resubmit all erroneous files, reports, and other data at the Credit Union's then standard charges, or at no charge, if the erroneous report or other data directly resulted from the Credit Union's error.
e. Credit Union Obligations.
Financial Data. We will review and process your electronic file through a batch processing at one time per day. The Credit Union agrees to transmit all the financial data under its control required to utilize the service selected by you and to act on appropriate instructions received from you in connection with such service. The Credit Union shall exercise due care in seeking both to preserve the confidentiality of the user number, password, test key, or other code or identifier and to prevent the use of the service by unauthorized persons (and in this connection it is understood and agreed that implementation by the Credit Union of its normal procedures for maintaining the confidentiality of information relating to its members, and where practicable the obtaining by the Credit Union from any third parties engaged in the installation, maintenance and operation of the system of similar undertakings, shall constitute fulfillment of its obligation to exercise due care) but shall not otherwise be under any liability or have any responsibility of any kind for any loss incurred or damage suffered by you by reason or in consequence of any unauthorized person gaining access to or otherwise making use of the service. You assume full responsibility for the consequences of any misuse or unauthorized use of or access to the Service.
Service Availability. You understand that Service availability is at all times conditioned upon the corresponding operation and availability of the communication systems used in communicating your instructions and requests to the Credit Union. We will not be liable or have any responsibility of any kind for any loss or damage thereby incurred by you in the event of any failure or interruption of such communication systems or services resulting from the act or omission of any third party, or from any other cause not reasonably within the control of the Credit Union.
Exception Items. When we review and process your electronic file, we may reject any electronic image that we determine to be ineligible for the service ("Exception Item") including, without limitation, electronic images of items drawn on banks located outside the United States, items drawn on U.S. Banks in foreign currency, electronic images that are illegible (due to poor image quality or otherwise), electronic images of items previously processed, electronic images previously converted to substitute checks, and electronic images with unreadable MICR information. We will notify you of any Exception Items. You agree that if you wish to attempt to deposit any Exception Item to any of your accounts with Credit Union, you will only do so by depositing the original item on which the Exception Item is based. You acknowledge and agree that even if you do not initially identify an electronic image as an Exception Item, the substitute check created by the Credit Union there from may nevertheless be returned to Credit Union because, among other reasons, the electronic image is deemed illegible by a paying bank. Credit Union's failure to identify an Exception Item shall not preclude or limit your obligations to Credit Union.
Account Information. We will provide you with daily transaction history via the Internet and the Online Banking service detailing items processed, return items, and deposit adjustments.
Retention of Check Images. Credit Union will retain any substitute checks it generates for seven (7) years.
f. Services Fees. Currently there is no monthly fee for the Mobile Deposit Service. You agree to pay all fees and charges for deposit services as set forth on the Rate and Fee Schedule. All Service Fees are subject to change by Credit Union upon thirty (30) days written notice to Member.

WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, THE CREDIT UNION DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTIES REGARDING THE OPERATION, PERFORMANCE OR FUNCTIONALITY OF THE SERVICE (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THAT THE SERVICE WILL OPERATE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION OR BE ERROR FREE). MEMBER FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THERE ARE CERTAIN SECURITY, CORRUPTION, TRANSMISSION ERROR AND ACCESS AVAILABILITY RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH USING OPEN NETWORKS SUCH AS THE INTERNET AND/OR TELECOMMUNICATION LINES OR CIRCUITS. MEMBER HEREBY ASSUMES ALL RISKS RELATING TO THE FOREGOING.
h. Credit Union's Liabilities. Direct Damages. THE CREDIT UNION'S LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO DIRECT DAMAGES SUSTAINED BY MEMBER AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT SUCH DAMAGES ARE A DIRECT RESULT OF THE CREDIT UNION'S GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT; PROVIDED THAT THE MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF THE CREDIT UNION RESULTING FROM ANY SUCH CLAIMS SHALL NOT EXCEED ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE CREDIT UNION BE LIABLE FOR SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND INCLUDING LOST PROFITS WHETHER OR NOT THE CREDIT UNION HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGE. THE CREDIT UNION'S LICENSORS OR SUPPLIERS WILL NOT BE SUBJECT TO ANY LIABILITY TO MEMBER IN CONNECTION WITH ANY MATTER.
Your Duty to Report Errors. You will notify Credit Union of any errors, omissions, or interruptions in, or delay or unavailability of, the Services as promptly as practicable, and in any event within one business day after the earliest of discovery thereof, or the date discovery should have occurred through the exercise of reasonable care, and, in the case of any error, within fourteen (14) days of the date of the earliest notice to you which reflects the error. Your failure to notify Credit Union of any error, omission, or other discrepancy within seven (7) days from the date of a loss shall relieve Credit Union of any liability for such error, omission, or discrepancy.

Credit Union will not be liable if Member fails to report timely any error or discrepancy reflected in an account statement prepared by Credit Union, or if Member fails to report a breach of a security procedure. If Credit Union fails to perform under this Agreement in accordance with the standards set herein, Credit Union's liability for damages, losses, and other compensation owing to you will be limited as set forth above.
Force Majeure. The Credit Union shall not be responsible for liability, loss, or damage of any kind resulting from any delay in the performance of or failure to perform its responsibilities hereunder due to causes beyond the Credit Union's reasonable control.
9. Account Access & Authorization.
a. Initial Access. After you have successfully registered and accepted the electronic services agreement, you will be able to access online and mobile banking. We may deny your access to electronic services based on certain account status at our discretion. Your accounts have member centric access and viewing capability. Member centric means that the member is able to view and transact on all Credit Union accounts with a single login. If you have an account on which you are the primary owner (your member number) and you have another account on which you are joint owner (or other authorized signer etc.) you are able to access and view all of the accounts with the login you use for your member number. You have the option to hide any account from access or viewing in your online baking settings. You also have the option to restrict other joint owners from viewing your accounts with the member centric feature by contacting the Credit Union to enable such option.
b. Security of Username and Password. The username and password for the online and mobile Banking services is issued for your security. The username and password are confidential and should not be disclosed to third parties or recorded. You are solely responsible for safekeeping your username and password. You agree not to disclose or otherwise make your access code available to anyone. If you authorize anyone to have or use your username and password, you understand that person may use the service to review all of your account information and make account transactions. Therefore, we are entitled to act on transaction instructions received using your username and password and you agree that the use of your username and password will have the same effect as your signature authorizing transactions. If you authorize anyone to have or use your username or password or Internet Enabled Device, you understand that person may use the Mobile Banking service to access and review all of your account information and execute account transactions. Therefore, we are entitled to act on transaction instructions received using your username and password and you agree that the use of your username and password will have the same effect as your signature authorizing transactions.
c. General Authorization. If you authorize anyone to use your username and 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 user name and 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 username and password are changed. If you fail to maintain or change the security of your username and password, you are responsible for any losses resulting from such failure and we may terminate your services immediately.
10. Access Authorizations & Account Controls.
If offered, you have the option to establish controls and limitations on the authorized access to your account and the transaction functions and amounts that may be conducted. You are solely responsible for establishing and maintaining these access authorizations and account controls to protect your account. You may establish dual account access controls and you are solely responsible for such designations, the implementation and enforcement of your internal account authorization policies and the actions of the designees of such dual controls. You may authorize multiple users to access and conduct transactions on the account (“Authorized Users”) with specific account transaction authorities and limitations and you are solely responsible for such Authorized User authorizations, the implementation and enforcement of your internal account authorization policies and the actions of your designated Authorized Users.
11. Account Aggregation Service Terms

The Account Aggregation service is offered through our third-party service provider, who acts on behalf of the Credit Union.

You understand and agree that, in order to provide the Service, it is necessary for us to access third party websites and databases containing information regarding your accounts and financial relationships as designated by you ("Third Party Accounts"), on your behalf, to retrieve information as requested or authorized by you. By using the Service, you agree to authorize us to access such Third-Party Accounts to retrieve such information as requested or authorized by you, or for any other purpose authorized by this Agreement. You represent to us that you have the right to authorize and permit us access to your Third-Party Accounts and information. You hereby expressly authorize and permit us to use information submitted by you including account passwords and user names to access your Third-Party Accounts to provide the Service. You understand and agree that at all times your relationship with each Third-Party Account provider is independent of the Credit Union and your use of the Service. You acknowledge and agree that when we access and retrieve information from the third-party accounts, we and our service provider are acting as your agent, and not as the agent of or on behalf of the third party.
c. Credit Union Responsibilities. We will not be responsible for any acts or omissions by the financial institution or other provider of any Third-Party Account, including without limitation any modification, interruption or discontinuance of any Third-Party Account by such provider. You agree that the Credit Union shall not be liable for any costs, fees, losses or damages of any kind incurred as a result of (1) access to the third party accounts by us or our service provider; (2) our retrieval of or inability to retrieve information from the third party accounts; (3) any inaccuracy, incompleteness or misinformation contained in content retrieved from the third party accounts and (4) any charges imposed by the provider of any third party account.
d. Your Responsibilities. You agree you will not use the Service for any purpose that is unlawful or is not permitted, expressly or implicitly, by the terms of this Agreement or by any applicable law or regulation. You further agree you will not use the Service in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair account aggregation or interfere with any other party's use and enjoyment of account aggregation. You may not obtain or attempt to obtain any materials or information through any means not intentionally made available or provided for through account aggregation. You agree that these warranties and representations will remain in full force and effect even if this Agreement terminates for any reason. You understand and agree that the Service is provided "as-is." We assume no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, misdelivery or failure to store any user communications or personalization settings. You understand and expressly agree that use of the Service is at your sole risk, that any material and/or data downloaded or otherwise obtained through the use of the service is at your own discretion and risk and that you will be solely responsible for any damages, including without limitation damage to your computer system or loss of data that results from the download of such material and/or data.
e. Discontinuing Service. You must delete your accounts in Online Banking if you wish to discontinue using Account Aggregation. We reserve the right to discontinue the Service at any time if you fail to follow the terms of service.
12. Unauthorized Transaction Reporting & Liability.
a. Transaction Authorization. Under this Agreement, you are responsible for all transactions you authorize using electronic services. If you permit other persons to use your username and password, you are responsible for any transactions they authorize or conduct on any of your accounts. However, you must notify us immediately if you believe anyone has used your username and password and accessed your accounts without your authorization. All transactions that person performs are authorized transactions. If you notify us that the person is no longer authorized, then only transactions that person performs after the time you notify us are considered unauthorized.
b. Liability Limits on Consumer Accounts. You are solely responsible for all transactions you authorize using electronic services. The Credit Union will not be responsible for any losses or damages you may incur regarding the unauthorized access to or use of your account if used for a business purpose. If you permit other persons to use your username and password, you are responsible for any transactions they authorize or conduct on any of your accounts.
For consumer accounts, you may limit your liability for unauthorized transactions. However, you must notify us immediately if you believe anyone has used your access code and accessed your accounts without your authorization. If you notify us within two (2) business days, you can lose no more than $50 if someone accessed your account without your permission. If you do not notify us within two (2) business days after you learn of the unauthorized use of your account or access code, and we can prove that we could have stopped someone from accessing your account without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.
If your statement shows EFT transactions that you did not make, notify us immediately. If you do not notify us within sixty (60) days after the statement was mailed to you, you may be liable for the full amount of the loss if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from making the unauthorized EFT transactions. If a good reason (such as a hospital stay) kept you from notifying us, we may extend the time period.
If you believe your username and password has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer funds from your account without your permission, contact us immediately by one of the following methods:

• As necessary to complete transfers;
• To verify the existence of sufficient funds to cover specific transactions upon the request of a third party, such as a credit bureau or merchant;

17. Limitation of Liability for Electronic Services.
a. Business Accounts. The Credit Union is responsible only for exercising ordinary care in making payment upon your authorization and for mailing or sending a payment to the designated payee. We are not liable in any way for damage you incur if you do not have sufficient funds in your account to make the payment on the processing date, if the estimate of time to allow for delivery to the payee is inaccurate, or due to delays in mail delivery, changes of merchant address or account number, the failure of any merchant to account correctly for or credit the payment in a timely manner, or for any other circumstances beyond the Credit Union’s control.
Our sole responsibility for an error in a transfer will be to correct the error. You agree that neither we nor the service providers shall be responsible for any loss, property damage or bodily injury, whether caused by the equipment, software, Credit Union, or by certified Internet browser providers or by Internet access providers or by online service providers or by an agent or subcontractor of any of the foregoing. Nor shall we or the service providers be responsible for any direct, indirect, special or consequential economic or other damages arising in any way out of the installation, download, use, or maintenance of the equipment, software, services, or Internet browser or access software. In this regard, although we have taken measures to provide security for communications from you to us via any Electronic Services and may have referred to such communication as “secured,” we cannot and do not provide any warranty or guarantee of such security. In states that do not allow the exclusion or limitation of such damages, our liability is limited to the extent permitted by applicable law.
b. Consumer Accounts. Our sole responsibility for an error in a transaction will be to correct the error and in no case will we be liable for any indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages. In states that do not allow the exclusion or limitation of such damages, our liability is limited to the extent permitted by applicable law. The Credit Union will not be liable for the following:
• If, through no fault of ours, you do not have sufficient funds in your account to complete the transaction, your account is inactive, or the transaction would exceed the credit limit on your line of credit, if applicable.
• If you used the wrong account or access code, you have not properly followed any applicable service or Credit Union user instructions for making any Mobile Banking transactions.
• If your personal computer malfunctioned or the phone lines were not working properly, or the Credit Union computer system was not working properly, and such problem(s) should have been apparent when you attempted your transaction.
• If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire, flood, telecommunication outages or strikes, equipment or power failure) prevent making the transaction.
• If the funds in your account are subject to an administrative hold, legal process or other claim.
• If you have not given the Credit Union complete, correct and current instructions so the Credit Union can process the transaction.
• If, through no fault of ours, a EBillPay transaction does not reach a particular payee due to changes in the payee address, account number or otherwise; the time you allow for payment delivery was insufficient; payment is lost in the mail or the payee failed to process a payment correctly or in a timely manner and a fee, penalty, or interest charge is assessed against you.
• If an error was caused by a system beyond the Credit Union's control such as a telecommunications system, an Internet Service Provider, any computer virus or problems related to software not provided by the Credit Union.
• If there are other exceptions as established by the Credit Union.

If we need more time, however, we may take up to forty-five (45) calendar days to investigate your complaint or question (ninety (90) calendar days for new account transaction errors, or errors involving transactions initiated outside the United States). If we decide to do this, we will re-credit your account within ten (10) business days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the 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 ten (10) business days, we may not re-credit your account.
If we decide after our investigation that an error did not occur, we will deliver or mail to you an explanation of our findings within three (3) business days after the conclusion of our investigation. If you request, we will provide you copies of documents (to the extent possible without violating other members' rights to privacy) relied upon to conclude that the error did not occur.
19. Termination of Services.
You agree that we may terminate this Agreement and any electronic services, if you, or any authorized user of the services breach this or any other agreement with us; or if we have reason to believe that there has been an unauthorized use of your accounts, user name or Password. In addition, we reserve the right to terminate the service if you fail to use the service for more than two consecutive billing cycles. You or any other party to your account can terminate this Agreement by notifying us in writing. Termination of service will be effective the first business day following receipt of your written notice. However, monthly fees (if applicable) will apply for any partial month with no prorating.

The Credit Union will notify you at least twenty-one (21) days before the effective date of any change, as required by law.

This Agreement shall be governed by and construed under the laws of the state of Oregon as applied to contracts entered into solely between residents of, and to be performed entirely in, such state. In the event either party brings a legal action to enforce the Agreement or collect any overdrawn funds on accounts accessed under this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to, subject to Oregon law, payment by the other party of its reasonable attorney's fees and costs, including fees on any appeal, bankruptcy proceedings, and any post-judgment collection actions.
RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES BY ARBITRATION: THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR DEPOSIT ACCOUNTS AND RELATED ELECTRONIC FINANCIAL SERVICES. IT PROVIDES THAT EITHER YOU OR WE CAN REQUIRE THAT CERTAIN DISPUTES BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION. ARBITRATION REPLACES THE RIGHT TO GO TO COURT, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR SIMILAR PROCEEDING. IN ARBITRATION, THE DISPUTE IS SUBMITTED TO A NEUTRAL PARTY, AN ARBITRATOR, INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY. ARBITRATION PROCEDURES MAY BE MORE LIMITED THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN COURT.
Claims Subject To Arbitration; Class Action Waiver. If there is a claim or dispute between us arising from or related in any way to any account, product, or service that is not subject to a separate agreement between us, either you or we may require the claim or dispute be resolved through binding arbitration before a neutral party instead of a lawsuit or other resolution in court. If either party requires the claim or dispute to be resolved through arbitration, it will be subject to arbitration even if the other party does not agree. This arbitration provision will apply irrespective of whether the claim or dispute arises under contract, tort, statute, or any other basis. Such claim or dispute shall be arbitrated on an individual basis and not in a class action. You and we waive any right to arbitrate disputes as part of a class action. If a class action lawsuit is initiated against us, you agree that this provision applies to such action and if we require claims covered by the class action to be arbitrated, you will withdraw from or agree to dismissal of the class action and allow your claim to be arbitrated on an individual basis. You acknowledge that You and we agree that no class action, classwide arbitration, private attorney general action, or other proceeding where someone acts in a representative capacity, may be pursued in any arbitration or in any court proceeding.
Claims Not Subject to Arbitration. The only exceptions to arbitration of claims is that both you and we have the right to pursue a claim in state court instead of arbitration for claims related to our collection of any negative balance or amounts you owe us under our Membership and Account Agreement, including but not limited to: fraud, counterfeit items and any unpaid account obligations. This exception applies if the claim is in that court’s jurisdiction and proceeds on an individual basis.
Arbitration Procedures. The arbitration shall be conducted through one of the following organizations, pursuant to the applicable rules of that organization: Arbitration Service of Portland or JAMS. The arbitration shall take place in the federal district in which you reside, or in which you entered into this Agreement. The arbitration shall be decided by a single, neutral arbitrator selected in accordance with the rules of the arbitration forum. The arbitrator shall follow procedures and rules of the arbitration forum in effect on the date the arbitration is filed unless those rules and procedures are inconsistent with this arbitration provision, in which case this Page 2 of 2 arbitration provision will prevail. You or we may choose to have a hearing and be represented by counsel. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction. We will reimburse the amount of filing, case management, administration, and arbitrator fees you pay to the arbitration organization and the arbitrator that exceed $250, to a maximum of $5000, unless the arbitration rules or arbitrator’s decision requires us to pay more. We will not reimburse any fees if the arbitrator determines that your claim or dispute was frivolous or baseless. Each party shall be responsible for its own fees in any arbitration unless the arbitrator awards attorney fees under applicable law or agreement.
This arbitration provision and any arbitration conducted under it are governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq.) and are not subject to any state law related to arbitration.
Right to Reject this Resolution of Disputes by Arbitration. You have the right to opt out of this agreement to arbitrate if you tell us within 30 days of your initial Account opening or the receipt of this notice, whichever is later. To opt out, send us written notice including the following information: (i) Your written notice must include: your name, as listed on your account, your account number, and a statement that you reject the Resolution of Disputes by Arbitration provision, and (ii) You must send Your written notice to Us at the following address: Mid Oregon Credit Union, PO Box 6749, Bend, OR 97708.
