HFS FEDERAL CREDIT UNION|
ONLINE BANKING AGREEMENT
Welcome to the HFS Federal Credit Union ("HFS FCU") Online Banking Service, which allows you to access information and make transactions online, using your personal computer and Internet access. Online Banking Service includes a variety of features, such as our Online Bill Payer, Popmoney, Mobile Banking, and Mobile Deposit (each, a "Service").
This Agreement applies to all Online Banking Services. Please read this Agreement carefully. By requesting and using one of the Services, you agree to comply with this Agreement. If you do not agree to this Agreement, do not use any Online Banking Service and contact HFS FCU to cancel your Online Banking Service.
This Agreement supplements all other rules and disclosures applicable to your Account (such as the HFS FCU Membership and Account Agreement; the HFS FCU Bylaws; and the Electronic Fund Transfers Agreement and Disclosure) and all services that you access through Online Banking, such as Mobile Banking. Printed versions of each of these disclosures are accessible on our website at www.hfsfcu.org. In the event of any irreconcilable inconsistency, the provisions of the more specific document will control. For example, the Terms and Conditions of the Mobile Banking Service will control over the Online Banking Agreement, which will control over the Membership and Account Agreement. If there is an irreconcilable conflict between what an HFS FCU employee says and written disclosures, the written disclosures will prevail.
1. Definitions and Requirements
This section defines certain terms used in this Agreement, and includes provisions relevant to those terms.
"Account" may refer to an account or subaccount at HFS FCU. See the definitions of "Family of Accounts" and "Linked Accounts," and section 2 below for additional information and risks involving the Family of Accounts and Linked Accounts.
"AAI" means Additional Authentication Information, and refers to information that HFS FCU may require you to provide to confirm your identity.
"Authorized Representative" refers to a person with authority with respect to the account.
"Business Account" means any account that is not established or used primarily for personal, family or household purposes. Sole proprietor accounts and accounts for entities (partnerships, LLCs, corporations, associations) are examples of Business Accounts. Certain Online Banking Services are not authorized for Business Accounts.
"Business Day" means Monday to Friday, except federal or bank holidays.
"Code" means your account Password, User ID, Personal Identification Number, ATM card, or other access code or access device (including ATM cards, debit cards, etc.).
"Family of Accounts" A primary share account may have multiple subaccounts attached to it, such as share-draft (checking) accounts, share certificates, credit cards, loans, lines of credit, mortgages, etc. The primary share account and all of the subaccounts attached to it are referred to as a "Family of Accounts." See section 2 below regarding important information concerning the ability of persons who have online access to make transactions and to obtain information for the entire Family of Accounts.
"ISP" refers to your Internet service provider.
"Linked Accounts" Linked accounts refer to accounts at HFS FCU between which funds may be transferred, subject to regulations (see section 4.c below). Linked accounts may be viewed using one log-in, Password and User ID. See section 2 below regarding important information concerning the ability of persons with online access to the Linked Accounts to make transactions and to obtain information for the entire Family of Accounts of all Linked Accounts.
"Online Banking" is the Internet-based service providing access to your HFS FCU account or to a Linked Account.
"Online Bill Payer" is the Online Banking Service that enables the scheduling of bill payments from your share-draft (checking) account using a personal computer. You must have a HFS FCU share-draft account in order to utilize the Online Bill Payer Service and Popmoney Service.
"Password" is the member generated code selected by you for use during the initial log-in, or the codes you selected after the initial log-in, that establishes your connection to the Online Banking Service. The same Password is used by all persons accessing any account in a Family of Accounts. This means that anyone with the Password can make transactions and obtain information for all accounts in the Family of Accounts (and for all accounts in the Family of Accounts of any Linked Accounts).
"PC" means your personal computer that enables you, with an Internet browser and ISP, to access your account with the Online Banking Service.
"User ID" is the member generated code selected by you during the initial log-in (or that you select after your initial log-in) that establishes your connection to the Online Banking Service. The same User ID is used by all persons accessing any account in a Family of Accounts.
"We," "us," "our," or "HFS FCU" refers to HFS Federal Credit Union,
"You" or "your" refers to the owner of the Account, any authorized representative of the Account, and anyone to whom your Password, User ID, other Code or AAI is given.
2. Access to Entire Family of Accounts and Linked Accounts
If the member or any other authorized person permits a third party to use a Password, User ID, other Code, or provides the third party with AAI, the member is responsible for all transactions that the third party authorizes or conducts, even if the third party exceeds the permission given to the third party.
This means that the third party may make Online Banking transactions in all accounts in the entire Family of Accounts, even if such person does not have authority to do so in person. Similarly, any person who is given online access to a Linked Account will have full online access to all accounts in the Family of Accounts of any Linked Account, whether or not the third party would otherwise have authority to make transactions in those accounts. Online access includes all linked accounts, whether or not they are in the same Family of Accounts. By giving the third party the Password, User ID, or other Code, the third party is authorized to conduct any transaction (and receive any information) online that the member could conduct (or receive) with the Password, User ID, or other Code.
This means, for example, that such persons will have online access to make transactions, such as withdrawals, transfers, and draws on lines of credit, in all such accounts within the Family of Accounts (and to all accounts in the Family of Accounts of any Linked Accounts). In addition, all such persons will have online access to information about all accounts within the Family of Accounts (any to all accounts in the Family of Accounts of any Linked Accounts). Such information may include, for example, records of transactions, account histories, balances, delinquencies, loans, applications, disbursements, deposits, withdrawals, debits, draws, charges, transfers, payments, security, account statements, payable-on-death (POD) beneficiaries, and other information.
If you do not want this to occur, change your Password, User ID, and other Codes, do not give your Password, User ID, or other Codes to others, do not allow others to link to your account, and ask us how to remove links between accounts.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold HFS FCU harmless against all claims regarding information given to, or transactions authorized or conducted by, (i) a third party to whom a Password, User ID, or other Code or AAI is given by the member or other authorized person; or (ii) an authorized person, joint account holder or co-borrower.
3. Availability and Access to Services
HFS FCU will provide instructions on how to use the Online Banking and Online Bill Payer Services.

HFS FCU reserves the right to cancel or suspend access to any Online Banking Service without prior notice. Service for new account holders may be delayed. If you have any difficulty accessing an Online Banking Service, please contact HFS FCU. We are not responsible for any delays or difficulties you may have in accessing the Online Banking Service.
Online Banking transfers between linked HFS FCU accounts are processed immediately if there are sufficient available funds in the account. All other Online transactions (including, for example, Online Bill Payer and Popmoney) are processed on our business days that the Federal Reserve Bank is operating and open for business, except that transactions conducted through the U. S. Postal Service (such as Online Bill Payer) do not occur if the Post Office is closed. Transaction requests initiated or received on a business day after 8:00 pm Hawaii Time are processed on the next business day, after 8:30 am Hawaii Time.
Processing of payment and transfer instructions may take longer through Online Banking. HFS FCU is not responsible for such differences or delays, whether or not attributable to your use of the Online Banking.

We have taken steps to protect the privacy and security of your personal information as well as your financial transactions with us. Please read our privacy notice online at www.hfsfcu.org/privacy.
Protect the confidentiality of your account, account number, AAI, Password, User ID, and other Codes. Do not reveal them to anyone else as this would violate the security of the Service and you may lose all the money in your accounts (plus your maximum line of credit if you have one). Anyone with your Code or other information may be able to obtain account information and make transactions even if he or she is not otherwise authorized to do so.
Anyone to whom you give your Codes will be deemed to have permission to make electronic transactions on your accounts, even if such person exceeds the authority you have given to him or her to make transactions on your accounts. You should change your Codes to minimize loss and contact us.
You are responsible for keeping your Codes confidential. No one at HFS FCU or our Service Provider has access to your Codes. In order to protect yourself against fraud, you should adhere to the following guidelines:
As part of the Security Procedures, HFS FCU may employ various authentication technologies, including, but are not limited to, use of User IDs, passwords and other Additional Authentication Information (AAI) that HFS FCU may require you to provide at HFS FCU’s sole discretion. You understand and agree that you will be responsible for maintaining security and control over your User ID, Password, Codes, and AAI, and shall use security for such items comparable to the security and control you would use for cash, but in no event less than reasonable security and control in the circumstances.
- Do not give out your account information, Password, User ID, or other Codes to anyone.
- Do not leave your PC or Internet enabled device unattended while you are on HFS FCU’s online banking site.
- Never leave your account information within range of others.
- Do not allow your Internet browser to store your online banking Password, User ID or other Codes.

- Use caution when utilizing public computers, such as in libraries, hotels, airports, rental cars or kiosks, as these may contain spyware or key logging software.
- Do not allow others to access your computer, or leave it unattended or unlocked when not in use.
- Close all non-Credit Union windows before accessing any Online Banking Service. Do not open any non-Credit Union window while you are logged on to Online Banking.
- End each Online Banking session by properly logging off of the Online Banking Service and closing the window for the Online Banking Service. Having other windows open while you are logged on to Online Banking, or failing to log off of Online Banking, or failure to close the window properly, may increase the risk of unauthorized access to your Credit Union accounts.
- If you suspect your online banking credentials have been compromised, use the password change feature within the User Options sections of the Online Banking Service to change your Password, User ID and other Codes on a secure computer.
- If you believe your Password, User ID or other Codes have been lost or stolen, or you suspect fraudulent activity on your account, call HFS FCU immediately at 808-930-1400 or Toll Free at 800-216-2666 between 8:30 am and 6:00 pm Hawaii Time Mondays thru Fridays, or between 8:30 am and 1:30 pm Hawaii Time Saturdays. Telephoning us is the best way to minimize your losses and liability.
If you have reason to believe that any Security Procedure has or may have become known by unauthorized persons, notify HFS FCU immediately by telephone. Also log on to HFS Online Banking and unenroll from HFS FCU’s Online Banking Service. You will be solely liable for all transactions initiated before HFS FCU has received such notification and has had a reasonable opportunity to act on such notification.
HFS FCU reserves the right to change any or all of the Security Procedures at any time to protect the integrity of the system. You agree that your use of an Online Banking Service after HFS FCU provides notice of such changes constitutes your acceptance of the new Security Procedures. You acknowledge that the purpose of Security Procedures is to authenticate the identity of the person initiating the action, not to detect errors in any transmission or content. HFS FCU is not agreeing to any Security Procedures or other procedure for the detection of errors. You represent that for any Online Banking Service, you consider the Security Procedures to be commercially reasonable with respect to the size, type, and frequency of deposits you anticipate submitting with respect to the Online Banking Service.
TELL US AT ONCE if you believe your Password, User ID or other Code has been lost or stolen or if you believe someone has used your Password, User ID, or other Code, or otherwise accessed an account without permission. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your accounts (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit).
