Mobile Deposit Disclosure

This Remote Deposit Capture Service Agreement contains the terms and conditions for the use of Remote Deposit Services that Mountain Laurel FCU may provide to you. The word “Remote Deposit” or “Remote Deposit Service” means the remote check deposit capture service offered by Mountain Laurel FCU through the mobile application. The word “account” means any one or more deposit accounts you have with Mountain Laurel FCU. By using the Remote Deposit Service or clicking the electronic signature “acceptance” below, you and any joint owners or authorized users, jointly and severally, agree to the terms and conditions in this Agreement, and any amendments. Other agreements you have entered into with Mountain Laurel FCU, including your Membership and Account Agreement, as amended from time to time, are incorporated by reference and made a part of this Agreement. 

Services. The Remote Deposit Service is designed to allow you to make deposits to your checking or share accounts from home or other remote locations by imaging checks and delivering the images and associated deposit information to Mountain Laurel FCU or Mountain Laurel FCU’s designated processor. 

Acceptance of these Terms. Your use of the Service constitutes your acceptance of this Agreement. This Agreement is subject to change from time to time. We will notify you of any material change on our website by providing a link to the revised Agreement. You will be prompted to accept or reject any material change to this Agreement the next time you use the Service after Mountain Laurel FCU has made a material change. Your acceptance of the revised terms and conditions along with the continued use of the Service will indicate your consent to be bound by the revised Agreement. Further, Mountain Laurel FCU reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions from the Service. Your continued use of the Service will indicate your acceptance of any such changes to the Service.

Limitations of Service. When using the Service, you may experience technical or other difficulties. We do not assume responsibility for any technical or other difficulties or any resulting damages that you may incur. We reserve the right to change, suspend or discontinue the Service, in whole or in part, or your use of the Service, in whole or in part, immediately and at any time without prior notice to you. 

Hardware and Software. In order to use the Service, you must obtain and maintain, at your expense, compatible hardware and software including mobile applications as specified by Mountain Laurel FCU from time to time. Mountain Laurel FCU is not responsible for any third-party software you may need to use the Service. Any such software is accepted by you as is and is subject to the terms and conditions of the software agreement you enter directly with the third-party software provider at time of download and installation.

Fees. Deposited ineligible items listed below are subject to a Return Deposit Item fee. 

Eligible items. You agree to scan and deposit only “checks” as that term is defined in Federal Reserve Regulation CC. When the image of the check that was transmitted to Mountain Laurel FCU is converted to an Image Replacement Document for subsequent presentment and collection, it shall thereafter be deemed an “item” within the meaning of Articles 3 and 4 of the Uniform Commercial Code. You agree that you will not scan and deposit any of the following types of checks or other items which shall be considered ineligible items: 

  • Checks payable to any person or entity other than the person or entity that owns the account that the check is being deposited into. 
  • Checks containing an alteration on the front of the check or item, or which you know or suspect, or should know or suspect, are fraudulent or otherwise not authorized by the owner of the account on which the check is drawn. 
  • Checks payable jointly, unless deposited into an account in the name of all payees. 
  • Checks previously converted to a substitute check or remotely created checks, as defined in Reg. CC. 
  • Checks drawn on a financial institution located outside the United States. 
  • Checks not payable in United States currency. 
  • Checks dated more than 6 months prior to the date of deposit unless otherwise stated on the check. 
  • Checks payable on sight or payable through Drafts as defined in Regulation CC. 
  • Checks with any endorsement on the back other than that specified in this agreement. 
  • Checks that have previously been submitted through the Service or through a remote deposit capture service offered at any other financial institution. 
  • Checks or items that are drawn or otherwise issued by the U.S. Treasury Department. 
  • Checks that are in violation of any federal or state law, rule, or regulation.

Endorsements and Procedures. You agree to restrictively endorse any item transmitted through the Service as: “FOR REMOTE DEPOSIT ONLY MLFCU” or as otherwise instructed by Mountain Laurel FCU. You agree to follow all other procedures and instructions for use of the Service as Mountain Laurel FCU may establish from time to time. 

Receipt of Items. We reserve the right to reject any item transmitted through the Service, at our discretion, without liability to you. We are not responsible for items we do not receive or for images that are dropped during transmission. We further reserve the right to charge back to your account at any time, any item that we subsequently determine was not an eligible item. You agree that Mountain Laurel FCU is not liable for any loss, costs, or fees you may incur because of our chargeback of an ineligible item. We reserve the right to place any applicable hold as regulated by Regulation CC on any item that is transmitted for deposit. 

Presentment. The way the items are cleared, presented for payment, and collected shall be in Mountain Laurel FCU’s sole discretion subject to the Membership and Account Agreement governing your account. 

Errors. You agree to notify Mountain Laurel FCU of any suspected errors regarding items deposited through the Service right away, and in no event later than 30 days after the applicable account statement is sent. Unless you notify Mountain Laurel FCU within 30 days, such statement regarding all deposits made through the Service shall be deemed correct, and you are prohibited from bringing a claim against Mountain Laurel FCU for such alleged error. 

Errors in Transmission. By using the Service, you accept the risk that an item may be intercepted or misdirected during transmission. Mountain Laurel FCU bears no liability to you or others for any such intercepted or misdirected items or information disclosed through such errors.

Without limiting the foregoing, the image quality of the items must comply with the requirements established from time to time by Mountain Laurel FCU, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Board, or any other regulatory agency, clearing house or association.

Enforceability. We may waive enforcement of any provision of this Agreement. No waiver of a breach of this Agreement shall constitute a waiver of any prior or subsequent breach of the Agreement. Any such waiver shall not affect our rights with respect to any other transaction or to modify the terms of this Agreement. If any provision of this Agreement shall be deemed to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable to any extent, the remainder of the Agreement shall not be impaired or otherwise affected and shall continue to be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
