You agree to keep your Login Credentials confidential and not make these available to any unauthorized individuals. We recommend not writing them down, but if you must, they must be kept in a place that is private and secured.

Neither termination nor discontinuation of your use of the Service shall affect your liability or obligation under this Agreement. Incidents of transactions that are returned for a closed and/or invalid account and repeated incidents of non-sufficient funds may result in termination.

When enrolled in the Service or in any features of the Service, we may make requests for personal information to a consumer reporting agency or other third party to determine initial and ongoing eligibility. You hereby authorize us to make any and all such requests.

When performing transactions or inquiries online, our business partners who assist us in providing the Service may have access to personal information. We may also disclose information to third parties about accounts or certain transactions:

  • When it is necessary to provide services to you, such as completing a request for an electronic transfer; or
  • In order to verify the existence and condition of an account for a third party, such as a credit bureau or merchant; or
  • In order to comply with a government agency or court orders; or
  • If the Credit Union has written permission; or
  • Pursuant to the Credit Union’s Privacy Policy

You understand and agree that, in order to provide the Service, it is necessary for us to access third party websites and databases containing information regarding you and/or your accounts (collectively, the “Databases”) and your Third Party Accounts (as defined in Section D.4 below), to retrieve information as requested or authorized by you. By using the Service, you agree to authorize us to access such Databases and Third Party Accounts to retrieve such Content as requested or authorized by you, or for any other purpose consistent with this Agreement.

You warrant and represent that the information you are providing is true, correct and complete. You represent and warrant that you have the right to authorize and grant us access to your Third Party Accounts. You assure us that by disclosing the information to us and by authorizing us to use such information to access your Third Party Accounts, you are not violating any Third Party rights. For as long as you are using the Service, you give to us a limited power of attorney and appoint us as your true and lawful attorney-in-fact and agent, with full power of substitution and resubstitution, for you and in your name, place and stead, in any and all capacities, to access the Third Party Accounts, retrieve Content, and use the Content, all as described above, with the full power and authority to do and perform each and every act and thing requisite and necessary to be done in connection with the Service, as fully to all intents and purposes as you might or could do in person.

Once we have proper written notice that you wish to cease using the Service as provided in this Agreement or as otherwise permitted in this Agreement and have a reasonable opportunity to act on such notice, this limited power of attorney shall be considered revoked; provided, however, that any act done by us in good faith before we have proper written notice of termination by you shall be deemed to be authorized by you.

You acknowledge and agree that when we are accessing and retrieving information from the Third Party Accounts, we are acting as your agent, and not as the agent of or on behalf of the Third Party. You agree that Quorum, its affiliates and partners shall be entitled to rely upon the foregoing authorization, agency and power of attorney granted by you. You agree that we shall not be liable for any costs, fees, losses or damages of any kind incurred as a result of:

  • Quorum’s access to the Third Party Accounts;
  • Quorum’s retrieval of or inability to retrieve information from the Third Party Accounts;
  • Any inaccuracy, incompleteness or misinformation contained in Content retrieved from the Third Party Accounts and any charges imposed by the provider of any Third Party Account.

The Quorum website may contain links to third party sites (“Linked Sites”) as needed or as a convenience to you. We do not screen, approve, review or otherwise endorse any content or information contained in any Linked Sites. You acknowledge and agree that we, our affiliates and partners are not responsible for the contents of any Linked Sites, including the accuracy or availability of information provided by Linked Sites, and make no representations or warranties regarding the Linked Sites or your use of them. In addition, you acknowledge and agree that the Linked Sites are not owned or controlled by us and that they operate under their own privacy policy that is different from the Quorum Privacy Policy. You understand and agree that at all times your relationship with any Third Party account provider is independent of us and your use of the Service.

We will not be responsible for any acts or omissions by the financial institution or other providers of any Third Party account, including without limitation any modification, interruption or discontinuance of any third party account by such provider.

8. Amendments

We reserve the right to change the terms under which the Service is offered in our sole discretion at any time. However, we will notify you of any material changes to these terms as may be required by applicable laws or regulations.

If an immediate change in the terms and conditions is necessary for security reasons, these terms and conditions may be amended without such prior notice. In most cases, you will receive notice online. However, we reserve the right to notify you by e-mail or conventional mail, at our discretion. You agree that if you continue to use the Service after we notify you of any change, you thereby accept the changes to the terms and agree to be bound by this Agreement, as amended.  

Further, we may revise or update the programs, services, and/or related material, which may render all such prior versions obsolete. Consequently, we reserve the right to terminate this Agreement as to all such prior versions of the programs, services, and/or related material and limit access to the Service’s more recent revisions and updates.

We regard your privacy and security with the utmost importance and are committed to safeguarding any information that you share with us. In order to provide the Service, we must obtain from you certain personal information regarding your accounts and financial relationships at the time of enrollment.

We will collect only such information as you knowingly provide to us or specifically authorize us to obtain on your behalf. Our priority is to keep this information secure and to use it only as you authorize us. This information is necessary to create your user profile, which allows you to access the Service.

10. Use of Content

Subject to our Privacy Policy you agree that we may use, copy, modify, display and distribute Content in order to provide the Service and, to the extent applicable, you hereby give us a license to do so.

11. No Waiver

We shall not be deemed to have waived any of our rights or remedies hereunder unless such waiver is in writing and signed by a Credit Union officer. No delay or omission on our part in exercising any rights or remedies shall operate as a waiver of such rights or remedies or any other rights or remedies. A waiver on any one occasion shall not be construed as a bar or waiver of any rights or remedies on future occasions.

12. Governing Law

This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York (to the extent not preempted by Federal law), without giving effect to its conflict of laws provisions or your actual state or country of residence. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision or portion of this Agreement to be unenforceable, the remainder of the Agreement will continue to be in full force and effect.

In addition, you represent and warrant that you may rightfully authorize us to access the Third Party Accounts.

D. Transfers

1. Service Description

This Agreement describes the various types of transfers that are available within the Service and the rights and responsibilities concerning these transactions, including rights under the Electronic Funds Transfer Act.

Transfers through the Service that affect savings accounts are subject to the Federally-mandated limitations on withdrawals and transfer transactions described in the “Truth-In-Savings Disclosure”.

After every transfer is successfully initiated, a status or confirmation message appears.
Documentation of transfers will be reflected on periodic statements, as required by applicable rules.

2. Transfers between Quorum Accounts (“Internal Transfers”)

Internal Transfers refer to the transfers made from one of your Eligible Accounts to another Eligible Account.

Internal transfers may be one-time, recurring, or scheduled for a future date. Transfers that are not scheduled for a future-date occur immediately and cannot be cancelled.

If a recurring or future-dated internal transfer fails for a reason other than insufficient funds in your Eligible Account from which the funds are being transferred, we may try again to complete it and you may be notified of the failure and further transfer attempts. If the internal transfer fails due to insufficient funds, you will not be notified.

3. Transfers between Quorum Accounts and Other U.S. Financial Institutions (“External Transfers”)

External transfers refer to transfers made to/from your Third Party Accounts at another U.S. financial institution and preauthorized debits and credits initiated by you. They are processed through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) on Business Days and may take up to 3 (three) business days to process.

Automated Clearing House system is used if we receive an ACH entry into your account. ACH credit entries will be governed by the rules of the National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA), which states that the ACH credit entry shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York.

4. External Transfers Definitions

Draw Account refers to the account that funds will be withdrawn from.

Receiving Account refers to the account that funds will be deposited into.

Send Date refers to the date the transfer is requested to be sent.

Third Party Account refers to your account at another U.S. financial institution, referenced through this Service.

5. External Transfers Terms and Conditions 

In order to initiate transfers to/from your accounts at other U.S. financial institutions, you will be required to provide account information for your Third Party Accounts, including, but not limited to, the financial institution’s name, ABA/routing number, account type, and your account number(s).

You acknowledge that if we are able to recognize that you provided us with incorrect or incomplete information, we may make reasonable efforts to contact you to remedy the situation. However, you agree to accept full responsibility for any losses resulting from any such errors. 

You may be required to provide proof of ownership of any Third Party Account to or from which you are requesting a transfer of money.

We may require you to demonstrate your ownership of a Third Party Account by means of trial deposits. Trial deposits involve us making one or two low value payment(s) (usually less than $1.00) and one withdrawal of such funds. You are then required to report certain details of such transactions to confirm your account ownership. Your funds are not used for the trial deposits. You will be asked to confirm the amount of the trial deposits in order to verify proper account setup. No external
transfer can occur without this verification. Each external transfer made with an eligible Quorum savings account will, if applicable, count toward the monthly transaction limit for your account. 

Quorum reserves the right to require you to use other methods to prove your ownership of a Third Party Account.

You agree that we have the right to collect funds from any/all of your Quorum accounts, including the available balance on your line-of-credit accounts or any of the overdraft services applicable to your accounts, to provide the funds for any transfers that have been requested by you. This includes accounts on which you are the primary owner, as well as accounts on which you are the joint owner.

We are not responsible for any holds on funds placed by other financial institutions.
We will not notify you in the event an external transfer fails due to insufficient funds.
The terms and conditions for the account types offered by us are stated in the “Truth-In-Savings and Other Account disclosures” apply (e.g., number of monthly transactions allowed on a particular account) and you hereby acknowledge and agree that they are incorporated herein by reference. 

6. Cancellation of External Transfers

Future-dated and recurring external transfers may be cancelled as long as they are cancelled prior to the Send Date.

7. Processing of External Transfers

The withdrawal will be initiated on the same Business Day the credit is initiated.
If the transfer funds are not available in the Draw Account for any reason, the entire transaction will be either canceled or reversed from the applicable account(s).
We will not be responsible for restrictions enforced by any other financial institution.
Standard transaction limits are defined below.

Transfer Type  
Daily and Outstanding Dollar Limit $250,000
Monthly Dollar Limit $250,000
Daily Number of Transfers  5
Monthly Number of Transfers Inbound & Outbound (Combined) 10

 
Daily and Outstanding Dollar Limit:
The maximum incoming and outgoing transfers in a single day.

Monthly Dollar Limit: When a new transfer is attempted, all transfers made within the last 30 days are subtracted from this limit to determine the funds available.

Daily Number of Transfers: The maximum number of transfers in a single day.
Monthly Number of Transfers: The maximum number of transfers in a month.

8. Termination of External Transfers

We may terminate use of External Transfers at any time, at our sole discretion. Incidents of transactions that are returned for a closed and/or invalid account, external transfers for which you are not the owner, and repeated incidents of non-sufficient funds may result in termination of External Transfers or the Service.

While you may request a reinstatement by contacting us, we reserve the right to grant or deny reinstatement.

If at any time you wish to discontinue your use of External Transfers, all pending transactions must either be canceled or completed prior to the termination.

Once your External Transfer service with us has been terminated for any reason, you will have no further right or access to use it and we will not access your Third Party Accounts thereafter for any reason.

9. Fees for External Transfers

You may be subject to Quorum fees or fees from other institutions for incidents of insufficient funds or other miscellaneous fees associated with any external transfer. Refer to the Credit Union Fee Schedule for a complete list of fees.

Fees, if applicable, will be debited from any Quorum account at the time the draw is made. You authorize us to deduct any/all fees at the time the transfer is initiated. If we are unable to collect the applicable fees due to insufficient funds, you authorize us to debit any of your accounts held at the Credit Union and/or take any means necessary to collect the fees.

10. Error Resolution and Disputes

Refer to the Error Resolution section of this Agreement. If you believe that any transfer has been made without your permission, contact MST immediately to protect your rights and limit your potential liability.

E. Bill Payment

1. Service Description

You may pay bills via the Bill Payment Service by electronic means or paper check based on availability to eligible payees located in the United States within established Bill Payment Service limits. You must have a checking account in order to use the service. This service may be accessed either online or via your mobile device.

2. Definitions

Payee refers to the vendor/biller, person or entity to which you wish a bill payment to be directed.

Payment Instructions refers to the information provided by you for a bill payment to be made to your Payee (e.g., payee name, account number, payment amount, and/or payment date).

Payment Account refers to your checking account. Should the account not have sufficient funds or be overdrawn when a bill payment is scheduled, any applicable share account or available balance on lineof-credit accounts at Quorum may be used. Multiple checking accounts may be established as Payment Accounts.

Payment Service and Bill Payment Service refer to the Bill Payment Service.

Deliver On Date refers to the date in which your bill payment transaction will be delivered to your chosen Payee and your account will be debited.

When a Payment Instruction is received by the Bill Payment Service, you authorize it to debit your designated Payment Account(s) and remit funds on your behalf so that the funds arrive as close to the Business Day
designated by you as reasonably possible.

3. Payment Processing
Payment will be made to your Payee either electronically via the Automated Clearing House (ACH) or by paper check. The method of payment depends upon the processing method that can be accommodated by the Payee (e.g., some Payees are unable to accept electronic payments). You will be notified to allow three (3) to five (5) Business Days for payment processing at the time payments are established. Payments made through the Bill Payment Service will appear on periodic statements.
Payments and transfers from your Payment Account may be processed in four different ways:

  • Today: If you designate a bill payment as a “Today” transaction, the Send On Date will be the same Business Day if requested prior to the Cutoff Time. Payments will be deducted from your Payment Account on the Deliver On Date. “Today” payments may not be changed once they are no longer in the “Payment Outbox.”
  • Future: If you designate a payment as a “Future” transaction, you may request that the transaction be made on a future date. You will only be able to establish payments with a Send On Date that is a Business Day. “Future” transactions may be canceled or changed as long as they are in a pending status.
  • Recurring: If you designate a payment as a “Recurring” transaction, you may request that the transaction be made in the same amount to the same Payee or account on a specified regular, periodic basis. You will designate a “start” and “end” date. You will only be able to establish the initial recurring payment with a Send On Date that is a Business Day. “Recurring” transactions may be canceled or changed as long as they are in a pending status. You may only establish a single recurring payment to the same Payee.
  • Automatic: If you receive e-bills for specific payee(s), you can designate an automatic payment rule to pay the bill or a portion of the bill. Sufficient and available funds must be available by 12:00 a.m. CT of the night before the Send On Date, but will be deducted from your Payment Account by the Delivery On Date. “Automatic” payments may only be changed if they are in a pending status.
     

4. E-Bills (Electronic Bills)

By enrolling in e-bills, you are authorizing the Payee/biller that offers this option to transmit your bill and are authorizing us to display your bill within the Service. Important: Your enrollment in e-bills will generally result in the termination of any existing bill in paper form that you are receiving currently.

The e-bill setup process may take a full billing cycle to process. There are two types of e-bills, direct and in-direct, which may have different setup requirements based upon what the individual Payee. Direct e-bills do not require any payee website login  information. For indirect e-bills, the Bill Payment service collects login credentials to the Payee site during the e-bill setup process. We are not responsible for e-bills that do not arrive, you cancel, or late payments as a result of late/missing electronic or paper bills.

You authorize us to provide your e-mail address and other required information to each Payee-biller you specify in order to set up and maintain the e-bill feature for you. You agree to abide by all terms and conditions and other requirements by the Payee-biller, including as all may be updated from time to time.

5. Stopping or Modifying Online Bill Payment Payments

Payments designated as “Today” transactions cannot be stopped, canceled, or changed once they are being processed.

Stop payments are only applicable to payments made by paper check that have not yet cleared. In order to request a paper check stop payment, you must contact MST. If the stop payment can be processed, a credit to your Payment Account will be processed within three (3) Business Days from the stop payment request date. You are responsible for completing any/all modifications to payments, payees, etc. If we do not properly complete a stop payment on a bill payment made by paper check on time according to our agreement with you, we may be liable for your losses or damages. However, we will not be liable if the information provided to us to process the stop payment order is incorrect or the fault lies with the member. There may be other exceptions deemed applicable by us.
