Password Protection/Responsibility. You are assigned a Password when you apply and are approved for DirectConnectsm or MobileConnectsm. It is your responsibility to create your own Password; thereby assuring that no one else can gain access to your information. In addition to your Password, initially, you will be required to answer six (6) security questions, select an image, and create a phrase to insure your on-line banking security; to access your accounts via MobileConnectSM, initially, you will be required to register your mobile device by entering a security code delivered to the phone number we have on records for your membership. In the event you forget your Password or have trouble logging into your account, contact Selfreliance FCU's Information Systems Department at 888-222-8571 and you will be assigned a new temporary Password. Selfreliance FCU recognizes the importance of selecting Passwords, and securing those Passwords. Selfreliance FCU has implemented the following Password policy:
Your new Password must:
- be between 8 and 15 characters long.
- not contain more than two consecutive characters from your user ID or full name (i.e. if your name is "Jonathan", you cannot have "ath" in your password).
- not use spaces, apostrophes (') or angle brackets (< >).
- meet three of the four following requirements:
- contain one uppercase letter (A - Z).
- contain one lowercase letter (a - z).
- contain 1 number (0 - 9).
- contain one non-alphabetic character (i.e. !, @, #, $, %).
- passwords are case sensitive: abcde1 is not the same as ABCDE1.
You will be locked out after 3 invalid login attempts.
Use of your Security Password. You agree not to allow anyone to gain access to the Services or to let anyone know your Password used with the Services. You further agree that Selfreliance FCU has no control as to the persons who have access to your personal computer or mobile device and your Password. Selfreliance FCU will not be liable for any unauthorized access to your personal computer or mobile device using your Password. You agree that it is your responsibility to initiate and maintain the highest level of password security procedures to prevent any unauthorized access to your personal computer, mobile device, or unauthorized use of your Password.
Notice of Unauthorized Access. If you believe that someone has obtained access to your account without your permission, immediately call the Internet Service Coordinator at Selfreliance FCU, 888-222-8571, during regular business hours.
For your protection, sign off after every session.
DirectConnectsm and MobileConnectsm Encryption. Data security between your computer or mobile device and Selfreliance FCU servers is handled through a security protocol called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL provides data encryption, server authentication and message integrity for an Internet connection. In addition, SSL provides a security "handshake" that is used to initiate the connection. This handshake results in the client and server agreeing on the level of security they use and fulfills any authentication requirements for the connection.
Selfreliance FCU will use commercially reasonable measures, consistent with industry standards, to maintain a reasonable level of security over the information contained in the electronically delivered account statement. The Selfreliance FCU system currently supports and requires SSL data encryption at the 128 bit level, the current standard in today's browser software.
You understand that these industry standards are dynamic and constantly developing. By accepting this Agreement, you acknowledge and understand that there are risks to electronic delivery of account statement, including, but not limited to, delay or failure of delivery due to technical difficulties, weather conditions, matters beyond our reasonable control, or interruption and/or alteration of such account statement by third parties in spite of Selfreliance FCU's commercially reasonable security measures.
By accepting this Agreement, you represent that you have considered our security measures, and find that our security measures are commercially reasonable. In reaching this conclusion, you have considered the historical and potential future content of your statement; the risks associated with electronic delivery of account statement, and our security procedures. If you conclude that our security procedures cease to be commercially reasonable in the future, you must terminate this Agreement immediately in accordance with the procedure outlined above.

If you have given someone your means of identification and wish to terminate their authority, or if you know or believe that your means of identification otherwise is compromised, you must notify Selfreliance FCU so that Selfreliance FCU can take the necessary steps to change the means of identification (see generally, the "Unauthorized Transfers" section below). You agree to defend, hold harmless and indemnify Selfreliance FCU from and against any and all claims of any nature arising out of any such access by a person you have authorized, permitted or enabled to have access to your Selfreliance FCU accounts via DirectConnectsm or MobileConnectsm.

You agree to take reasonable precautions to safeguard your password and/or any other means of identification, to not leave your device unattended while using DirectConnectsm or MobileConnectsm and to always exit completely (log out) after using it.
Transfers and Payments. When you instruct Selfreliance FCU to transfer funds between your accounts through DirectConnectsm or MobileConnectsm, you authorize Selfreliance FCU to withdraw the necessary funds from the account you designate. As with any funds transfer request, whether or not utilizing DirectConnectsm or MobileConnectsm, you agree that you will instruct Selfreliance FCU to make a withdrawal only when a sufficient balance is or will be available in your designated account. Selfreliance FCU will not be obligated to act on any withdrawal instruction from you if sufficient funds, including overdrafts, are not available in the account(s) you designate.
Fund Transfers through DirectConnectsm or MobileConnectsm between some of your accounts may be limited. Federal regulations limit the number of pre-authorized, automatic or on-line banking transfers from what is commonly known as a share (savings) account or a market share account to no more than six transfers and withdrawals, or a combination of such transfers and withdrawals, per calendar month or statement cycle, to another of your accounts or to a third party by means of an online (web based), preauthorized, or automatic transfer.

Communications. You agree that you may receive this Agreement, related disclosures and all other communications from Selfreliance FCU electronically and that Selfreliance FCU may respond to you with an electronic communication, even if your communication that we are responding to was not originally in electronic form. If Selfreliance FCU sends you an electronic communication, Selfreliance FCU will consider it received within three (3) calendar days of the date that it was sent, just like communications via U.S. Mail, regardless of whether or not you sign on to your specified e-mail account within that time frame.
To the extent permissible under state or federal law, electronic communications that you send to Selfreliance FCU will not be considered effective until we receive them and have a reasonable opportunity to act on such communications. It is therefore important that you consider reporting situations requiring immediate attention to us by calling Selfreliance FCU toll-free at 888-222-8571, in addition to providing electronic communication. Selfreliance FCU may require written confirmation of any communication as well. Note that certain communications required or permitted in this Agreement must be sent in writing by mail.

Financial Institution's Liability. If we do not complete a transfer to or from your account on time or in the correct amount according to our Agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable, for instance:
- If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer.
- If you have overdraft protection and the transfer would exceed the available funds.
- If your computer, a mobile device, the software, phone lines, any browser, our computer system or any aspect of DirectConnectsm or MobileConnectsm were not working properly or were temporarily unavailable and you knew about the breakdown or problem when you started the transfers or transactions.
- If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire, flood, Acts of God, Acts of War) prevent the transfer, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken.
- If the funds are subject to legal process or other encumbrance restricting such transfer.
- There may be other exceptions stated in our Agreement with you.
Unauthorized Transfers - Member Liability. Your Liability for Unauthorized Use. You are responsible for all transfers you authorize using DirectConnectsm or MobileConnectsm under this Agreement. If you permit other persons to use your Password, you are responsible for any transactions they authorize or conduct on any of your accounts.
Tell us AT ONCE if you think your Password or other DirectConnectsm or MobileConnectsm identification has been lost, stolen or used (or may be used) without your permission, or your DirectConnectsm or MobileConnectsm has otherwise been (or may be) used without your permission. Telephoning is the best way of minimizing your possible losses.
If you tell us within 2 business days after you discover your DirectConnectsm or MobileConnectsm Password or other means to access your account has been lost, stolen or used without your permission, your liability is no more than $50.00 should someone access your account without your permission. If you do not tell us within 2 business days after you learn of such loss or theft, and we can prove that we could have prevented the unauthorized use of your Password or other means to access your account if you had told us, you could be liable for as much as $500.00.
If you do not tell us within 60 days after the monthly statement was mailed or E-Statement availability notification was sent 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 the money if you had told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we may extend the time period.
If you believe your Password has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, call us immediately at 888-222-8571 or write to us at:

In either case, we will send you a statement of the amount you owe and the date that it is due.
If you fail to pay the amount that we think you owe, we may report you as delinquent. However, if our explanation does not satisfy you and you write to us within ten (10) days telling us that you still refuse to pay, we must tell anyone we report you to that you have a question about your statement. In addition, we must tell you the name of anyone we reported you to. We must tell anyone we report you to that the matter has been settled between us, when it finally is.
If we don't follow these rules, we can't collect the first $50 of the questioned amount, even if your statement was correct.
In case of errors or questions about your ELECTRONIC TRANSFERS.
