TOMAH AREA CREDIT UNION ONLINE BANKING DISCLOSURE AND AGREEMENT
This agreement states the terms and conditions that apply when you use the TACU Credit Union Online Banking and Mobile Banking service, online account opening, document delivery, retention, and signature process. These terms and conditions are in addition to those that apply to any accounts you have with us or any other services you obtain from us. You must also follow all of our instructions and procedures applicable to the services covered by this agreement. By consenting to the Agreements, you agree that TACU Credit Union can provide the documents described in this Agreement (the “Documents”) to you electronically through either Online Banking, email, or through SIGNiX (or another third party vendor selected by TACU Credit Union). This ESign Disclosure and Agreement is required by the Federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (“ESign Act”) in order for us to provide you with an electronic version of the Agreements and the Documents. Each time you access an account through TACU Credit Union Online Banking or Mobile Banking, you confirm your agreement to these terms.
* “You” and “your” mean each person or business entity who establishes a TACU Credit Union Online Banking or Mobile Banking Member Account with us or who uses or is authorized to use a TACU Credit Union Online Banking or Mobile Banking identification number and password or other means of access we establish or approve.
* “TACU Credit Union Online Banking or Mobile Banking” and the “Service” means our service that allows you to make payments, transfer funds, access accounts, obtain information and perform other transactions over the Internet by use of a personal computer and modem and/or other means we authorize or allow.
* “Online account opening”, “document delivery”, “retention”, and “signature process” shall mean the TACU Credit Union online platforms that allow members to apply for accounts and loans, receive, consent to, agree, and sign Agreements and Documents electronically. These online platforms may be provided by third parties on behalf of TACU Credit Union and such use may be subject to separate terms and conditions of use. TACU Credit Union reserves the right to change third party vendors at any time with or without notice. Separate fees may apply.
“We”, “us”, “our” or “the Credit Union” refer to TACU Credit Union which offers the Service and which holds the account or accounts accessed by the Service.
- Identification Number and PIN
To access the TACU Credit Union Online Banking or Mobile Banking service, you must use the temporary identification number “ID” and/or other means of access we establish or provide for your TACU Credit Union Online Banking or Mobile Banking Member Account, together with a temporary TACU Credit Union Online Banking or Mobile Banking PIN. You will be prompted to change your ID and PIN after the first use of your Credit Union assigned temporary ID and PIN. We recommend that you change your PIN on a regular basis. Anyone to whom you give your TACU Credit Union Online Banking or Mobile Banking ID and PIN or other means of access will have full access to your accounts and you will not be able to limit that person’s authority. We are entitled to act on any instruction received under your TACU Credit Union Online Banking or Mobile Banking ID and PIN. You are responsible for keeping your ID and PIN, and account data confidential.
The first time you access any of the accounts available to you under this Service, you confirm your agreement to be bound by all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement and acknowledge your receipt and understanding of this disclosure. You may choose to accept or decline new services or changes to existing services by continuing or discontinuing the services to which such change may relate.
WE STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU DO NOT DELEGATE AUTHORITY OVER YOUR ACCOUNT TO ANYONE WHO IS NOT AN AUTHORIZED SIGNER FOR YOUR ACCOUNT AS LISTED ON THE ACCOUNT SIGNATURE CARD.
You must be a primary owner of this account. Notwithstanding any instructions contained on the signature card for your account, you understand and agree that access to your account via TACU Credit Union Online Banking or Mobile Banking is granted by IDs and PINs that can be reentered by a single individual. You should not designate any account that requires more than one signature for withdrawals. However, if you do so designate such an account, you, and all co-signers of the account, agree that transactions made via TACU Credit Union Online Banking or Mobile Banking by use of an ID and PIN are authorized.

Payments are not allowed from Christmas club, education club, certificate of deposit, installment loan, or IRA accounts.

Funds transfers into loans or lines of credit will be credited as payments in the manner set forth in your promissory note or loan agreement. Transfers from savings and money market accounts are limited by law and your deposit account agreement with us. For these types of accounts, you may only make up to six withdrawals and/or transfers each month by check, pre-authorized or automatic transfer, draft, telephone, or online access. Only three of these six transactions may be by check, draft, debit card, or similar order to third parties. Funds from deposited items may also be subject to an uncollected funds hold, as disclosed in your funds availability disclosure.
- Our Liability for Failure to Complete Payments or Transfers
If we do not complete a payment or transfer on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we will only be liable to you to complete such payment or transfer. Under no circumstances will the Credit Union be liable for any damages that you may suffer, including consequential damages, due to our failure to complete a payment or transfer. Specifically, the Credit Union will NOT be liable to any extent whatsoever if:
a) Through no fault of ours, you do not have enough available money in the account from which a payment or transfer is to be made, or if the account has been closed or is not in good standing, or if we reverse a payment or transfer because of insufficient funds;

h) We process your payment in a timely manner, but the payee rejects your payment or fails to process it in a timely manner;
i) Circumstances beyond our control prevent, delay, intercept or alter the transaction, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken.
There may be other exceptions stated in our agreements with you.

- Your Liability
Each of you agrees to the terms of this Service. You are liable for all transactions that you or any of you make or authorize, even if the person you authorize exceeds your authority. You agree not to disclose or share your TACU Credit Union Online Banking and Mobile Banking ID and PIN or other means of access with others. If you have given someone your TACU Credit Union Online Banking or Mobile Banking ID and PIN or other means of access and want to terminate that person’s authority, you must change your TACU Credit Union Online Banking and Mobile Banking ID and PIN or other means of access or take additional steps to prevent further access by such person.
- Unauthorized Transactions or Loss or Theft of Your TACU Credit Union Online Banking or Mobile Banking ID or PIN
If you believe your TACU Credit Union Online Banking or Mobile Banking ID or PIN or other means of access have been lost or stolen or that someone has used them without your authorization, contact us immediately by one of the following methods:
- Telephone TACU Credit Union during normal business hours at (608) 372-4736;
- Email us at email@example.com; or
- Visit, or write to, us at 940 N. Superior Ave., P.O. Box 940, Tomah, WI 54660.
Quickly telephoning us is the best way of reducing your possible losses. Not all emails may arrive at their destinations. If you do email us, we will reply to you via return email to confirm that we did receive it. Because the Internet is not secure from being read by just anyone, do not include any of your Account or Social Security numbers with your email. Your name, address, a phone number where you can be reached, and a brief message as to what the problem might be is all we will need to initially assist you.
If you think that your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transfer listed on the statement or receipt, the Credit Union must hear from you no later than 60 days after the Credit Union sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.
- Tell the Credit Union your name and account number (if any).
- Describe the error, the transfer or payment 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 the Credit Union the dollar amount of the suspected error.
If you tell the Credit Union orally, the Credit Union will require that you send the Credit Union your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days. The Credit Union will tell you the results of its investigation within 10 business days after it hears from you and will correct any error promptly. If the Credit Union needs more time, however, it may take up to 45 days to investigate your complaint or question.
If the Credit Union decides to investigate your complaint, it will re-credit your account within 10 business days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have use of the money during the time that it takes the Credit Union to complete its investigation. If the Credit Union asks you to put your complaint or question in writing and does not receive it within 10 business days the Credit Union may not re-credit your account. If the Credit Union decides that there was no error, it will send you a written explanation within 5 business days after it finishes its investigation. You may ask for copies of the documents that the Credit Union used in its investigation.
Members who are consumers using an account for personal, family or household purposes have some protection from loss caused by unauthorized access. An “unauthorized electronic funds transfer” means an electronic funds transfer from a consumer’s account initiated by a person other than the consumer without actual authority to initiate the transfer and from which the consumer receives no benefit. The term does not include an electronic funds transfer initiated by a person who was furnished with the access device to the consumer’s account by the consumer, unless the consumer has notified the Credit Union that transfers by that person are no longer authorized or the transfer was initiated with fraudulent intent by the consumer or any person acting in concert with the consumer. If your TACU Credit Union Online Banking PIN has been compromised and you tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone used your TACU Credit Union Online Banking PIN without your permission to access a Credit Union deposit account. If you do NOT tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft and we could have stopped someone from taking money without your permission had you told us, you could be responsible for the entire loss or theft.
If your statement shows withdrawals, transfers or purchases that you did not make or authorize, please notify us at once. If you do not notify us within 60 days after the paper or online statement was sent to you, and we could have stopped someone from taking money if you had told us in a timely manner, you may not get back any money lost after the 60 days. If extenuating circumstances, such as long trip or hospital stay, kept you from telling us, the time periods in this section will be extended.
- Business and Other Non-Personal Accounts
The Credit Union’s obligations set forth in Sections 6 and 10, and the limitations on your liability set forth in Section 9, do not apply in the case of business or other non-personal accounts. Under no circumstances will we be liable for any special or consequential damages involving such accounts. The owners of non-personal accounts must notify us immediately if they discover any unauthorized transactions or errors, and must send us a written notice of the problem within a reasonable time (not to exceed 14 days from the date of discovery or their receipt of the first statement or notice reflecting the problem, whichever occurs first). We may process any on-line instruction we believe is given by any of you if the instruction is accompanied by your TACU Credit Union Online Banking or Mobile Banking ID and PIN, and you will be obligated for the transfer or payment, even if the instruction is not transmitted or authorized by you.
