As used in this Disclosure and Agreement the words “we,” “our,” and “us” mean Hiway Federal Credit Union® (Hiway) and the words “you” and “your” mean the consumer or business that applied for and/or uses any of the Mobile Remote Deposit Capture Services (the Services) described in this Disclosure and Agreement. Your application for use of the Mobile Remote Deposit Capture Services, our notification of approval of your application and Hiway’s All About Your Accounts, Service Fee Schedule or Business Account Agreement are hereby incorporated into and made a part of this Disclosure and Agreement. In the event of a discrepancy between this Disclosure and Agreement and your application, our approval, or the All About Your Accounts or Business Account Agreement, this Disclosure and Agreement will control.


USE OF THE SERVICES


Following receipt of our notification approving your use of the Services from mobiledeposit@hiway.org, you are authorized by Hiway to remotely deposit paper checks you receive to your account with Hiway (the Account) by electronically transmitting a digital image of the paper checks to us for deposit. Your use of the Services constitutes your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Disclosure and Agreement. You agree to comply with the hardware and software requirements set forth in the System Requirements which can be found at hiway.org/mobile-deposit-reqs. Upon receipt of the digital image, we will review the image for acceptability. You understand and agree that receipt of an image does not occur until after we notify you of receipt of the image via onscreen messaging and/or email notification. You understand that, in the event you receive a notification from Hiway confirming receipt of an image, such notification does not mean that the image contains no errors or that Hiway is responsible for any information you transmit to us. Hiway is not responsible for any image that we do not receive. Following receipt of the image, we may process the image by preparing a “substitute check” or clearing the item as an image. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, we reserve the right, within our sole and absolute discretion, to accept, reject or reverse any item for remote deposit into the Account. You understand that any amount credited to the Account for items deposited using the Services is a provisional credit and you agree to indemnify Hiway against any loss we suffer because of our acceptance of the remotely deposited check.
In addition, you agree that you will not (i) modify, change, alter, translate, create derivative works from, reverse engineer, disassemble or decompile the technology or Services, (ii) copy or reproduce all or any part of the technology or Services or (iii) interfere, or attempt to interfere, with the technology or Services.
GUARANTEE SPECIFIC TO DEPOSITS RECEIVED FOR CREDIT TO A BUSINESS ACCOUNT
Your use of the Services for the purpose of depositing to a Business Account constitutes your understanding and agreement that you may be personally liable for any expenses Hiway 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 Hiway enforcing this Guarantee. This Guarantee shall benefit Hiway and our successors and assigns.


COMPLIANCE WITH LAW


You agree to use the products and Services for lawful purposes and in compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations, as well as all laws pertaining to the conduct of your business if applicable. You warrant that you will only transmit acceptable items for deposit and have handled the original items in accordance with applicable laws, rules and regulations. You promise to indemnify and hold us 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 the Account and this Disclosure and Agreement.


CHECK REQUIREMENTS


Any image of a check that you transmit to us must accurately and legibly provide all the information on the front and back of the check at the time presented to you by the drawer. Prior to capturing the original check, you will endorse the back of the original check and include the following information: member number, date of deposit and the words "via Mobile Deposit". The image of the check transmitted to Hiway 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


We are not liable for any service or late charges levied against you due to our rejection of any item. In all cases, you are responsible for any loss or overdraft plus any applicable fees to the Account due to an item being returned.


ITEMS RETURNED UNPAID


A written notice will be sent to you of transactions we are unable to process because of returned items. With respect to any item that you transmit to us for remote deposit that we credit to the Account, in the event such item is dishonored, you authorize us to debit the amount of such item from the Account.


EMAIL ADDRESS


You agree to notify us immediately if you change your email address, as this is the email address where we will send you notification of receipt of remote deposit items.


UNAVAILABILITY OF SERVICES


You understand and agree that the Services may at times be temporarily unavailable due to Hiway’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, you acknowledge that you can deposit an original check at our branches, through our ATMs or by mailing the original check to Hiway at 111 Empire Drive, St. Paul, MN 55103. It is your sole responsibility to verify that items deposited using the Services have been received and accepted for deposit by Hiway.
