However, from time to time, some or all of the Credit Union's Internet Banking services may not be available due to system maintenance. You will need a personal computer and a web browser (such as Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer). The online address for Internet Banking is www.myCMCU.org. You are responsible for the installation, maintenance, and operation of your computer and modem. The Credit Union will not be responsible for any errors or failures involving any telephone service or your computer. At the present time, you may use the CMCU Internet Banking to:

  3. Product Limitations. The following limitations on CMCU Internet Banking transactions may apply:

    • Transfers/Withdrawals. You may make transfers from your checking account as often as you like. However, according to regulation D requirements, transfers from Share, Savings, Holiday Club, Little Scholars, Boom!, and Money Market accounts are limited according to the terms of your Truth-In-Savings Disclosure. The maximum amount you may withdraw by check is $10,000. The Credit Union reserves the right to refuse any transaction that would draw upon insufficient or unavailable funds. The Credit union may set other limits on the amount of any transaction and you will be notified of those limits.
    • Account Information. The account balance and transaction history information may be limited to recent account information involving your accounts. Also, the availability of funds for transfer may be limited due to our Funds Availability Policy.
    • E-Mail. You may use the e-mail to send messages to us. E-mail may not, however, be used to initiate a transfer on your account or a stop payment request. The Credit Union may not immediately receive e-mail communications that you send and the Credit Union will not take action based on e-mail requests until the Credit Union actually receives your message and has a reasonable opportunity to act. If you need to contact the Credit Union immediately regarding an unauthorized transaction or stop payment request, you may call the Credit Union at 888.330.8482.

  4. Security of Password

    • Security. The password that you select is for your security purposes. The password is confidential and should not be disclosed to third parties or recorded. You are responsible for safekeeping your password. You agree not to disclose or otherwise make your password available to anyone not authorized by you to sign on your accounts. If you authorize anyone to have or use your password, you understand that person may use Internet Banking to review all of your account information and make account transactions. Therefore, we are entitled to act on transaction instructions received using your password and you agree that the use of your password will have the same effect as your signature authorizing transactions.
    • Authorization. If you authorize anyone to use your password in any manner that authority will be considered unlimited in amount and manner until you specifically revoke such authority by notifying the Credit Union and changing your password immediately. You are responsible for any transactions made by such persons until you notify us that transactions and access by that person are no longer authorized and your password is changed. If you fail to maintain or change the security of this password and the Credit Union suffers a loss, we reserve the right to terminate your electronic funds transfer and account services immediately.

  5. Member Liability for Unauthorized Transactions. You are responsible for all Internet Banking transactions you authorize under this agreement. If you permit someone else to use your password, you are responsible for any transactions they authorize or conduct on any of your accounts. However, tell us at once if you believe someone has used your password or otherwise accessed your accounts without your authority. Telephoning is the best way to keep your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit). 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, contact the main branch telephone number listed below:

  10. Credit Union Liability for Failure to Make Transfers. 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. Our sole responsibility for an error in a transfer will be to correct the error. You agree that neither we nor the service providers shall be responsible for any property damage or loss, whether caused by the equipment, software, Credit Union, or by online browser providers such as Netscape (Netscape Navigator browser) and Microsoft (Microsoft Internet Explorer browser), or by internet access providers or by online service providers or by an agent or subcontractor of any of the foregoing. Nor shall we or the service providers be responsible for any direct, indirect, special or consequential economic or other damages arising in any way out of the installation, download, use, or maintenance of the equipment, software, CMCU Internet Banking services or internet browser or access software. In this regard, although we have taken measures to provide security for communications from you to us via CMCU Internet Banking services and may have referred to such communication as "secured," we cannot and do not provide any warranty or guarantee of such security. In states that do not allow the exclusion or limitation of such damages, our liability is limited to the extent permitted by applicable law. The Credit Union will not be liable for the following:

    • If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer or your account is inactive.
    • If you used the wrong password or you have not properly followed any applicable computer, or Credit Union user instructions for making transactions.
    • If your computer fails or malfunctions or the phone lines or CMCU Internet Banking system was not properly working and such problem should have been apparent when you attempted such transaction.
    • If circumstances beyond your control (such as fire, flood, telecommunication outages or strikes, equipment or power failure) prevent making the transaction.
    • If the funds in your account are subject to an administrative hold, legal process or other claim.
    • If your account is frozen because of a delinquent loan.
    • If you have not given the Credit Union complete, correct and current instructions so the Credit Union can process a transfer.
    • If an error was caused by a system beyond the Credit Union's control such as a telecommunications system, an internet service provider, any computer virus or problems related to software not provided by the Credit Union.
    • If there are other exceptions as established by the Credit Union.

  11. Termination of Services. You agree that we may terminate this Agreement and your Internet Banking services, if you, or any authorized user of your Internet Banking services or password, breach this or any other agreement with, or if we have reason to believe that there has been an unauthorized use of your accounts or password, or if you conduct or attempt to conduct any fraudulent, illegal or unlawful transaction, or if we reasonably believe your account conduct poses an undue risk of illegality or unlawfulness.

    You or any other party to your account can terminate this Agreement by notifying us in writing. Termination of service will be effective the first business day following receipt of your written notice. Termination of this Agreement will not affect the rights and responsibilities of the parties under this Agreement for transactions initiated before termination.

If we need more time, however, we may take up to forty-five (45)** days to investigate your complaint or question.
