You agree that you will preserve the originals of all checks, processed through the services pursuant to this agreement for ninety (90) calendar days after the day of deposit (“Retention Period”).

You are required to implement such procedures to ensure that the original checks are not accessed by unauthorized persons during the storage, destruction and disposal process and, once destroyed, the original checks are no longer readable or capable of being reconstructed (e.g., through the use of competent shredding equipment). The risk of loss associated with the accidental inclusion of a physical check in the check collection process or with a lost, destroyed, stolen or misplaced check shall be exclusively on the member.

Member Representations and Warranties

You represent and warrant that all checks transmitted through the use of the services are made payable to the member, all signatures and endorsements on each check are authentic and authorized, and each check has not been altered.

Prohibited Checks

You agree that checks scanned through the use of the services will not:

  • be payable to any person or entity other than you;
  • be prohibited by, or received in violation of, any law, rule or regulation;
  • be known or suspected (or should have been known or suspected) as fraudulent or otherwise unauthorized by the owner of the account on which the check is drawn;
  • have been previously cashed or deposited;
  • be postdated or more than six (6) month old;
  • be irregular in any way;
  • payable to you and another party who is not a joint owner on the account; or
  • be drawn on financial institutions that are located outside the United States.

Endorsement of Checks

You agree to properly endorse each check prior to submitting such check through the use of the services. You agree to restrictively endorse any item transmitted through the Services as "MOBILE DEPOSIT, SUMA FCU account #           " or as otherwise instructed by SUMA Federal Credit Union.

You agree to follow any and all other procedures and instructions for use of the Services as SUMA Federal Credit Union may establish from time to time. Endorsements must be made on the back of the share draft or check within 1½ inches from the top edge, although we may accept endorsements outside this space. Any loss we incur from a delay or processing error resulting from an irregular endorsement or other markings by you will be your responsibility.

For a check payable to you and any joint owner(s) of your account, the check must be endorsed by all such payees and you may only use Mobile Deposit to deposit such check into an account jointly owned by all such payees. If the check is payable to you or your joint owner, either of you can endorse it.

If the check is made payable to you and any non-joint owner, you may not deposit the check into your account using the Services. And, you agree never to represent the item. You will promptly provide any retained item, or a sufficient copy of the front and back of the item, to SUMA Federal Credit Union as requested to aid in the clearing and collection process, to resolve claims by third parties with respect to any item, or for SUMA Federal Credit Union’s audit purposes.

Image Quality

You are responsible for inspecting and verifying the quality of the images associated with image items, thus ensuring that the digitized images of the front and back of original checks are legible for all posting and clearing purposes by the Credit Union. Specifically, you are representing and warranting to Credit Union that:

The image item is an accurate representation of all information on the front and back of the original check at the time the original check was converted to an image item, and the image item contains all endorsements from the original check necessary to permit Credit Union to: 

  1. Acquire rights of a holder in due course in the collection process of checks and other items;
  2. Handle, process, maintain and destroy original checks; and
  3. Ensure that neither Credit Union nor any other financial institution (depositary, collecting or payor), drawee, drawer or endorser receives presentment or return of, or otherwise is charged for a check or image item more than once in any form.

The image quality of the items must comply with the requirements established from time to time by the American National Standards Institute ("ANSI"), the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Board, or any other regulatory agency, clearing house or association.

These requirements include, but are not limited to, ensuring the following information can clearly be read and understood by sight review of the Check image: the amount of the Check (both written and numeric); the payee; the signature of the drawer (maker); the date; the Check number; the information identifying the drawer and the paying financial institution that is preprinted on the Check including the MICR line; and all other information placed on the Check prior to the time of 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).

Adjustments

Once an image item is captured, the system will display captured encoded fields for your review. You will be required to make corrections to encoding not read or missing from the scanned check, including entering the legal amount of the check. We reserve the right to adjust your deposit after you have submitted it for processing. Adjustments are to correct mistakes in the value of image items deposited, mistakes in encoding, or for missing or illegible image items.

Storage, Security and Destruction/Disposal of the Checks

After you receive confirmation that we have received an image, you must securely store the original Check for 90 days after transmission to us and make the original Check accessible to us at our request. Upon our request from time to time, you will deliver to us within two Business Days, at your expense, the requested original Check in your possession. If not provided in a timely manner, such amount will be reversed from your account.

Promptly after the 90-day retention period expires, you must destroy the original Check by first marking it "VOID" and then destroying it by cross-cut shredding or another commercially acceptable means of destruction. After destruction of the original Check, the image will be the sole evidence of the original Check.

You agree that you will never re-present the original Check. You understand that you are responsible if anyone is asked to make a payment based on an original check that has already been paid.

Presenting Checks More Than Once

Once you have used the Service to deposit a Check you agree not to present, or allow anyone else to present, that original Check or a substitute check of that original Check again for deposit through the Service or by any other means. If you or anyone else present a Check or substitute check for deposit more than once, in violation of this Agreement, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold SUMA Federal Credit Union harmless from and against all liability and damages that may result from any claims, suits or demands from third parties with respect to such Check or substitute check.

You agree that we may debit from your account the aggregate amount of any Checks that that are deposited more than once. To the extent that funds in your account are insufficient to cover such amount, we shall debit the deficiency amount from any other of your account(s) with the Financial Institution in our sole discretion. If you present a check more than once, your participation in the mobile remote deposit program may be suspended or terminated at our sole discretion.

Authentication Method

You agree that we are entitled to act upon instructions we receive with respect to the Service under your user ID, password, test key or other code or authentication method that we require (these components are referred to herein collectively as your “Authentication Method”). You are liable for all transactions made or authorized with the use of your Authentication Method. We have no responsibility for establishing the identity of any person who uses your Authentication Method.

You agree that if you give any component of your Authentication Method to anyone or fail to safeguard its secrecy, you will be in violation of your obligations under your Account Agreement and this Agreement.

You agree to take appropriate steps to ensure that all components of your Authentication Method are protected and kept confidential.

You agree to indemnify and release us from any and all liability, and agree not to make any claim or bring any action against us, relating to our honoring or allowing any actions or transactions that are conducted under your Authentication Method or acting upon instructions, messages or authorizations provided to us using your Authentication Method.

By accessing the Service with your Authentication Method, you authorize us to complete the requested transaction(s) through the Service. Any requests or instructions we receive from you through the Service using your Authentication Method shall be considered “in writing” under all applicable law and shall have the same force and legal effect as a writing signed by you. This includes, but is not limited to, inquiries, deposit transactions, Checks deposited, Check images, changes to accounts or services or any other communication you provide us through the Service using your Authentication Method.

Rejection of Deposits

After we receive Check images and all other required deposit information from you through the Service, we shall provisionally credit your designated account for the total amount of such Checks. The provisional credit is subject to final payment of the Checks and is also subject to your SUMA Federal Credit Union Account Agreement.

You agree that all deposits received by us are subject to verification and final inspection and may be rejected by us in our sole discretion, and you shall be liable to SUMA Federal Credit Union for any errors, inaccuracies, breach of warranties and any other loss sustained by, or claim made against the Financial Institution relating to such deposits.

SUMA Federal Credit Union is not liable for any service or late charges that may be imposed against you due to the SUMA Federal Credit Union’s rejection of any Check that you transmit for deposit through the Service. In all cases, you are responsible for any loss or overdraft plus any applicable fees to your account due to a Check being returned.

You acknowledge and agree that, while we normally provide notice of rejected deposits, we may reject any Check transmitted through the Service in our sole discretion without notice to you, and we will not be liable for any such rejection or failure to notify you of such rejection. If we reject a Check for remote deposit, you must physically deposit the original Check.

Unpaid Checks

Should you fail to produce the original check, you authorize us to deduct that amount from your account.

You are solely responsible for verifying that Checks that you deposit by using the Service have been received and accepted for deposit by SUMA Federal Credit Union. SUMA Federal Credit Union will provide you with notice of any deposits that it is unable to process because Checks were returned unpaid by the payor financial institution.

You agree to accept such notices at your e-mail address on file with us, but we may choose any reasonable method for providing such notices to you. In the event that the SUMA Federal Credit Union credits your account for a Check that is subsequently dishonored and returned, you authorize SUMA Federal Credit Union to debit the amount of such Check plus any associated fees from the account.

To the extent that funds in your account are insufficient to cover such amount, we shall debit the deficiency amount from any of your other account(s) with SUMA Federal Credit Union in our sole discretion. Our right to charge your account(s) will apply without regard to whether the Check was timely returned or whether there is any other claim or defense that the Check was improperly returned.

You understand and agree, that since the original Check is your property, it will not be returned and SUMA Federal Credit Union may charge back an image of the Check, an ACH debit, or other electronic or paper debit, as applicable, to your account.

You further agree that any image that we charge back may be in the form of an electronic or paper reproduction of the original Check or a substitute check.

You may not use the Service to deposit a substitute check and you may not deposit the original Check through the Service or in any other manner if you receive a dishonored Check.

You agree to comply with any additional instructions we may provide to you in connection with returned Checks.

Duty to Report Errors

SUMA Federal Credit Union will provide you with periodic statements that will identify the deposits that you make through the Service. In addition, you may access SUMA Federal Credit Union’s Online Banking service for information about your deposits, return items, deposit adjustments, Checks and other transactions on your accounts.

You agree that it is your responsibility to review all such information that SUMA Federal Credit Union makes available to you in a timely manner to verify that deposits made through the Service have been received and accepted by SUMA Federal Credit Union and are accurate. Receipt of a Check by us through the Service does not constitute an acknowledgement by us that the Check is error-free or that we will be liable for the Check.

You agree to notify us promptly of any errors, omissions, or discrepancies in a deposit within the time periods established in your Account Agreement. You may notify us by e-mailing us at memberservice@sumafcu.org or writing to SUMA Federal Credit Union, 125 Corporate Blvd, Yonkers, NY 10701, or telephoning us at 914-220-4900.

You agree to cooperate in any investigation by SUMA Federal Credit Union of any unsuccessful or lost transmission.

The deposit of original checks at an office of the Financial Institution shall be governed by the terms and conditions of the Deposit Account Agreement and not by the terms of this Agreement.

If you are unable to complete your deposit promptly, you will ensure that your mobile device remains securely in your possession until the deposit has been completed. It is your responsibility to establish and maintain procedures to safeguard against unauthorized deposits.

You will notify us immediately by telephone at 914-220-4900 and with written notice at SUMA Federal Credit Union, 125 Corporate Blvd, Yonkers, NY 10701, Attn: Remote Deposit Processing, if you learn of any loss or theft of original checks.

Without limitation, you recognize that under the Rules, the UCC, Regulation CC and the rules of any image exchange network, our representations and warranties to others with regards to image items and substitute checks may expose the Credit Union to claims for several years following processing of any particular image item or substitute check.

 b.
