Use of the Services. Following my acceptance of this agreement, I am authorized by you to remotely deposit paper checks through the SnapDeposit 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 Wescom Credit Union. (Wescom Credit Union iOS and Android Application version 2.3 or higher and/or a TWAIN compliant scanner for desktop use. Desktop use not available at this time.) 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 and/or email notification. I understand that, in the event I receive a notification from you confirming receipt of an image, such notification 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.
Guarantee Specific to Deposits Received for Credit to a Business Account:
My use of the Services for the purpose of depositing to a Business Account constitutes my understanding and agreement that I may be personally liable for any expenses Wescom Credit Union incurs in attempting to obtain final payment for the item in question, outside of the routine costs associated with item processing, in the event of a default by the Business. This includes but is not limited to recovery of the amount credited in the event of non-payment, collection costs and attorney’s fees as applicable, as well as any and all costs associated with Wescom Credit Union enforcing this Guarantee. This Guarantee shall benefit the Wescom Credit Union and its successors and assigns.
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. 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 preprinted 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.
Email Address. I agree to notify you immediately if I change my email address, as this is the email address where you will send me notification of receipt of remote deposit items or communicate to you regarding any remote deposit items, if necessary.
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 Wescom Credit Union, PO Box 7058, Pasadena, CA 91109.

Funds Availability. I understand and agree that, for purposes of deposits made using the Services, the place of deposit is Anaheim, CA. With regard to the availability of deposits made using the Services, such funds will be available as set forth below.
YOUR ABILITY TO WITHDRAW FUNDS
Our general policy is to make funds from your cash and check deposits available to you on the same day we receive your deposit. Electronic direct deposits will be available on the day we receive the deposit. Once the funds are available, you will have full access to those funds. For determining the availability of your deposits, every day is a business day, except Saturdays, Sundays, and Federal holidays. If you make a deposit before 6:00 p.m. on a business day that we are open, we will consider that day to be the day of your deposit. However, if you make a deposit after 6:00 p.m. or on a day we are not open, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day we are open.
If you make a deposit at an ATM before 12:00 p.m. on a business day that we are open, we will consider that day to be the day of your deposit. However, if you make a deposit at an ATM after 12:00 p.m. or on a day we are not open, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day we are open.
LONGER DELAYS MAY APPLY
In some cases, we will not make all of the funds that you deposit by check available to you on the same day of your deposit. Depending on the type of check that you deposit, funds may not be available until the second (2nd) business day after the day of your deposit. The first $200 of your deposits, however, may be available on the first (1st) business day.
If we are not going to make all of the funds from your deposit available on the first (1st) business day, we will notify you at the time you make your deposit. We will also tell you when the funds will be available. If your deposit is not made directly to one of our employees, or if we decide to take this action after you have left the premises, we will mail you the notice by the day after we receive your deposit.
If you will need the funds from a deposit right away, you should ask us when the funds will be available. In addition, funds you deposit by check may be delayed for a longer period under the following circumstances:
We believe a check you deposit will not be paid.
You deposit checks totaling more than $5,000 on any one day.
You redeposit a check that has been returned unpaid.
You have overdrawn your account repeatedly in the last six (6) months.
There is an emergency, such as failure of computer or communications equipment.
We will notify you if we delay your ability to withdraw funds for any of these reasons, and we will tell you when the funds will be available. They will generally be available no later than the fifth (5th) business day after the day of your deposit.
SPECIAL RULES FOR NEW ACCOUNTS
If you are a new member, the following special rules may apply during the first thirty (30) days your account is open. Funds from electronic direct deposits to your account will be available on the day we receive the deposit. Funds from deposits of cash, wire transfers, and the first $5,000 of a day’s total deposits of cashier’s checks, certified checks, teller’s checks, traveler’s checks, and federal, state and local government checks will be available on the day of your deposit if the deposit meets certain conditions. For example, the checks must be payable to you. The excess over $5,000 will be available on the ninth (9th) business day after the day of your deposit. If your deposit of these checks (other than a U.S. Treasury check) is not made in person to one of our employees, the first $5,000 will not be available until the second (2nd) business day after the day of your deposit. Funds from all other check deposits will be available on the eleventh (11th) business day after the day of your deposit.
HOLDS ON OTHER FUNDS
If we cash a check(s) for you that is drawn on another Financial Institution, we may withhold the availability of a corresponding amount of funds that are already in your account. Those funds will be available at the time funds from the check we cashed would have been available if you had deposited it.
DEPOSITS AT AUTOMATED TELLER MACHINES
Funds from any deposits (cash or checks) made at automated teller machines (ATMs) we do not own or operate will not be available until the fifth (5th) business day after the day of your deposit. This rule does not apply at ATMs that we own or operate.
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.
SnapDeposit deposit limits may change at any time without any prior notification. Wescom Credit Union reserves the right to revoke this service, reject or adjust any deposits upon submission of the scanned 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.

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. If I am using the Service to deposit items into an account in the name of a Business to which I am a party I understand this means the original check(s) must be accessible only [under dual control] by my authorized personnel, that I deposit using the Services for a period of 7 days after transmission to you. Persons who have access to the stored checks must be fully bondable and have passed a thorough screening. 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 SnapDeposit, I understand that check images captured using my mobile device are stored on the device only until the associated deposit has been successfully submitted. I agree to promptly complete each deposit.

Accountholder’s Indemnification Obligation. I understand and agree that I am required to indemnify you and hold you harmless against any and all claims, actions, damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses arising from my use of the Services and/or breach of this Disclosure and Agreement.
