The words “we,” “us,” and “our” mean the Credit Union. The word “account” means any one or more share and share draft accounts you have with the Credit Union.

You agree that you will not use your card for any transaction that is illegal under applicable federal, state, or local law. Funds to cover your Card purchases will be deducted from your share draft account. If the balance in your account is not sufficient to pay the transaction amount, the credit union will pay the amount and treat the transaction as a request to transfer funds from other deposit accounts, approved overdraft protection accounts or loan accounts that you have established with the Credit Union. If you initiate a transaction that overdraws your Account, you agree to make immediate payment of any overdrafts together with any service charges to the Credit Union. In the event of repeated overdrafts, the Credit Union may terminate all services under this Agreement. You may use your Card and PIN (Personal Identification Number) in automated teller machines of the Credit Union, STAR, CO-OP Network, The Exchange, Member Access, and such other machines, networks or facilities as the Credit Union may designate.

- Conditions of EFT Services.
- Ownership of Cards. Any Card or other device which we supply to you is our property and must be returned to us, or to any person whom we authorize to act as our agent, or to any person who is authorized to honor the Card, immediately according to instructions. The Card may be repossessed at any time at our sole discretion without demand or notice. You cannot transfer your Card or account to another person.
- Honoring the Card. Neither we nor merchants authorized to honor the Card will be responsible for the failure or refusal to honor the Card or any other device we supply to you. If a merchant agrees to give you a refund or adjustment, you agree to accept a credit to your account in lieu of a cash refund.
- Security of Access Code. You may use one or more access codes with your electronic funds transfers. The access codes issued to you are for your security purposes. Any codes issued to you are confidential and should not be disclosed to third parties or recorded on or with the Card. You are responsible for safekeeping your access codes. You agree not to disclose or otherwise make your access codes available to anyone not authorized to sign on your accounts. If you authorize anyone to use your access codes, that authority shall continue until you specifically revoke such authority by notifying the Credit Union. You understand that any joint owner you authorize to use an access code may withdraw or transfer funds from any of your accounts. If you fail to maintain the security of these access codes and the Credit Union suffers a loss, we may terminate your EFT services immediately.
- Joint Accounts. If any of your accounts accessed under this Agreement are joint accounts, all joint owners, including any authorized users, shall be bound by this Agreement and, alone and together, shall be responsible for all EFT transactions to or from any share and share draft or loan accounts as provided in this Agreement. Each joint account owner, without the consent of any other account owner, may, and hereby is authorized by every other joint account owner to, make any transaction permitted under this Agreement. Each joint account owner is authorized to act for the other account owners, and the Credit Union may accept orders and instructions regarding any EFT transaction on any account from any joint account owner.
- Foreign Transaction. The exchange rate for transactions in a foreign currency will be a rate selected by Visa from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which rate may vary from the rate Visa itself receives, or the government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date, plus the 1% International Service Assessment (ISA) transaction fee.
- Fees and Charges.
There are certain fees and charges for electronic funds transfer services. From time to time, the charges may be changed. We will notify you of any changes as required by applicable law. When using ATMs not owned by us, you may be assessed a fee. Such fees are imposed by the ATM owner, not your credit union. If you use an ATM that is not operated by us, you may be charged a fee by the ATM operator and by any national, regional, or local network used in processing the transaction. The ATM surcharge will be debited from your account if you elect to complete the transaction.
- $1.00 charge for ATM withdrawals at machines we do not own (non-proprietary).
• $1.00 charge for Point of Sale (POS) Terminal Transactions.
• Annual card fee of $5.00. (if applicable)
• Replacement card fee of $15.00 per card.
- Member Liability.
You are responsible for all EFT transfers you authorize. If you permit someone else to use an EFT service, your Card or your access code you are responsible for any transactions they authorize or conduct on any of your accounts. However, tell us at once if you believe your Card has been lost or stolen or if you believe someone has used your Card or access code or otherwise accessed your accounts without your authority. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your card has been lost or stolen. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit). If a transaction was made with your Card or Card number without your permission, and is either a VISA or Interlink transaction, you will have no liability for the transaction. For all other EFT transactions, including ATM transactions, your liability for an unauthorized transaction is determined as follows. If you tell us within two (2) business days, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your Card without your permission. If you do NOT tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Card, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your Card without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.00.
Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money lost after the sixty (60) days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time. If a good reason (such as a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.
If you believe your Card has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, call: (217) 278-7700 or (877) 678-4328 (toll free) or write to:
