EZ ACCOUNT ACCESS AGREEMENT AND DISCLOSURE
INTEGRITY Federal Credit Union
This Agreement and Disclosure is the contract between you and INTEGRITY which covers your and our rights and responsibilities concerning the eZ Account Access services offered to you by INTEGRITY. The eZ Account Access service permits you to electronically initiate account transactions involving your accounts at the credit union. By requesting and using the eZ Account Access service, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and any amendments.
EZ ACCOUNT ACCESS ACCOUNT ACCESS: If we approve your application for the eZ Account Access service, you may use your personal computer to access your accounts at the credit union. You must use the password and username assigned to you, to access your accounts. Each person who is an owner on an account may apply for access via eZ Account Access service. Unless the primary owner notifies the credit union otherwise, any person who can transact business on an account as a joint owner will have the same capability electronically. You will need a personal computer with a modem and access to the Internet in order to use the eZ Account Access service. You are responsible for the installation and maintenance of your computer. The Credit Union is not responsible for any errors or failures involving any telephone service, Internet Service, or for the software or hardware of your computer.
You may use the eZ Account Access service to:
- View account balances and transaction history of your share draft (checking), share savings, and loan accounts
- Make transfers between your authorized share draft (checking), and share savings accounts
- Make loan and credit card payments from your share draft (checking) or savings accounts
- Request a withdrawal from your regular share account by check, which will be mailed to the address of record
- View and print checks that have cleared your share draft (checking) account
- Inquire if a specific check number has cleared
- Change your username and password
- Conduct any other transactions permitted by the Credit Union
TRANSACTION LIMITATIONS: The following limitations of eZ Account Access transactions may apply in using the services listed below:
TRANSFERS: You may transfer funds to other accounts of yours at the Credit Union. Federal regulations limit pre-authorized transfers from your regular share account and money market account.
During any statement period, you may not make more than six withdrawals or transfers to another credit union account of yours or to a third party by means of a preauthorized or automatic transfer or telephone or computer order or instruction. No more than three of the six transfers may be made by check, draft, debit card (if applicable), or similar order to a third party. If you exceed the transfer limitations set forth above in any statement period, your account will be subject to closure by the credit union.
The Credit Union will not be required to complete a withdrawal or transfer from your share accounts if you do not have enough money in the designated account to cover the transaction. You agree not to use the eZ Account Access services to initiate a transaction that would cause the balance in your designated share account to go below zero. We will not be required to complete such a transaction, but if we do so, you agree to pay us the excess amount or improperly withdrawn or transferred amount immediately upon our request. We will also refuse to complete your eZ Account Access transactions if we have cancelled your eZ Account Access access or we cannot complete the transaction for security reasons.
ACCOUNT INFORMATION: The account balance and transaction history information may be limited to recent account information involving your accounts. Also, the availability of funds for transfer or withdrawal may be limited due to processing time and our Funds Availability Policy.
PASSWORD SECURITY: The password issued to you for initial access to eZ Account Access is for security purposes. You must change your password the first time you use the eZ Account Access service. Your password is confidential and should not be disclosed to third parties or recorded. You agree to accept responsibility for protecting the integrity of your password. You agree not to disclose or otherwise make your password known to anyone not authorized to sign on your accounts. When you give someone your password, you are authorizing that person to use your eZ Account Access services and you are responsible for all transactions that person performs while using your service. All transactions that person performs, even those that you did not intend or did not want performed, are authorized transactions. If you notify us that the person is no longer authorized, then only transactions that person performs after you notify us are considered unauthorized. Transactions that you or someone acting with you initiates with fraudulent intent are also authorized transactions. You also agree that we may revoke your eZ Account Access access at any time without notice to you. For your security, sign off after every eZ Account Access session and close your browser window to ensure confidentiality.
LIABILITY FOR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS: Contact us at once if you believe your password has been lost or stolen. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit). If you contact us within 2 business days, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your password without your permission. If you believe your password has been compromised, and you contact us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your password without your permission.
If you do not tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your password, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from accessing your account without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.
Also, if your statement show transfers that you did not make, contact us at once. If you do not tell us within 60 days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 60 days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking money if you had told us in time.
If a good reason, such as a long trip or a hospital stay kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.
If you believe your password has been compromised or if someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, call:

IN CASE OF ERRORS OR QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR ELECTRONIC TRANSFERS:

Email Address: email@example.com
In case of errors or questions about your eZ Account Access transactions, contact the Credit Union immediately. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.
If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days via US Postal Service or email.
- Tell us your name and account number
- Describe the error or transaction you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information
- Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error
We will determine whether an error occurred within 10 business days (20 business days if the transfer involved a new account) after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days (90 days if the transfer involved a new account, a point-of-sale transaction, or a foreign initiated transfer) to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days (20 business days if the transfer involved a new account) for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have 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 10 business days, we may not credit your account. Your account is considered a new account for the first 30 days after the first deposit is made, unless each of you already has an established account with us before this account is opened.
We will tell you the results within 3 business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation.
STOP PAYMENTS: The transactions you perform on the Credit Union’s eZ Account Access are “real time” transactions and cannot be cancelled except by performing corresponding reverse transactions. If you transfer money into a third party account, transfer money into your club accounts, or make payments on your loan accounts or credit card accounts, you will not be able to reverse those transactions.
TEXT ALERTS & SMS TEXTING: To participate in the Service’s text messaging program, you must have a SMS/text messaging-enabled mobile phone. YOU are responsible for standard text rates and/or data usage rates that apply in conjunction with any of the terms and conditions of your agreement(s) with your cell phone carrier.
TERMINATING THIS AGREEMENT: You can terminate this Agreement at any time by notifying us in writing. We may terminate this Agreement at any time for any reason, including inactivity. Your eZ Account Access account is automatically terminated after 45 days of inactivity. To re-establish access, contact the Credit Union. Whether you terminate the Agreement or we do, the termination does not affect your obligations under this Agreement, even if we allow any transaction to be completed with your password after this Agreement has been terminated.
CHANGING THIS AGREEMENT: The Credit Union reserves the right to modify the terms of this Agreement from time to time as deemed necessary. We will notify you at least 21 days before the change will take effect if the change will cause you a greater cost or liability or if it will limit your access to eZ Account Access. You will be notified of the changes in the Credit Union’s monthly statement mailing, or in a special notification to members of the eZ Account Access service. We do not have to notify you in advance, however, if the change is for security reasons.
To complete an application for eZ Account Access, you must agree to these terms and conditions.
