This Disclosure and Agreement ("Agreement") establishes the rules and requirements regarding your electronic access to your account(s) at Ventura County Credit Union through Online Banking. You are bound by this Agreement when you enroll for Online Banking. You also accept all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement by clicking "Submit" below or by using Online Banking.
Read this document carefully. You can print a copy for your files.
For the purposes of this agreement, the terms "we," "us," "our," and "Credit Union" refer to Ventura County Credit Union. "You," "your," or "yours" refers to the Credit Union member, joint account owner, or anyone authorized by the member to use the account. "Account" means any one or more share or loan accounts you have with the Credit Union.
This Agreement explains and describes the types of Electronic Funds Transfers which are available to you within Online Banking. This Agreement also contains your rights and responsibilities concerning transactions that you make through Online Banking, including your rights under the Electronic Funds Transfer Act. The terms and conditions of the Credit Union’s Membership and Account Agreement, Electronic Services Disclosure, and any other applicable agreements and/or disclosures supplement this Agreement and are incorporated herein by this reference. In the event of a conflict between this Agreement and any other agreement or disclosure, this Agreement shall control.
To use Online Banking, you are required to create a Username and Password in connection with your registration and use of the Online Banking service. Your Username and Password are confidential and should NOT be disclosed to others. Your Username must NOT be the same as your account number or password. The Username must be between 6 and 20 characters, must start with a letter and may only contain numbers and letters. You are responsible for the proper safekeeping of your Username and Password. If you authorize anyone to use your Username or Password, that authority shall continue until you specifically revoke such authority by changing the Username and Password or by notifying the Credit Union and creating a new Username and Password. Anyone to whom you give your Username and Password will have full access to your accounts even if you attempt to limit that person’s authority.
If you voluntarily subscribe to a third party account aggregation service where your selected Credit Union deposit and loan account(s) as well as your accounts at other financial/investment institutions may be accessed on a website, you may be requested to give your access code to the aggregate service provider. You understand that by doing so, you are providing the aggregate service provider access to your account(s) at the Credit Union.
We recommend that you change your access code regularly. Your access codes must contain between 8 and 20 characters including numbers, letters and special character (~!@#$%^&?+=) We recommend that you do not use access codes that could be easily guessed, such as your birthdate, last name, or other information that may be publicly available. The access code is case sensitive and must not be the same as your account number or username. We are entitled to act on instructions received under your access code. For security purposes, you must keep your access code and account information confidential. This means that you should memorize your access code and not write it down. If, through your own negligence or otherwise, you make your access code available to an unauthorized third party, you agree to notify us immediately. In such a case, you understand that we may terminate your access to the Service to protect the security of the Service and your Account.
The Credit Union will never contact you and ask you to provide your access code. If you are contacted by anyone claiming to be a representative of the Credit Union who asks you to provide any access code, you understand that you should not provide your access code and you should contact us at (800) 339-0496 immediately to report the incident.
The Credit Union recommends that you purchase and utilize anti-malware software as a defense against keyloggers and certain forms of attacks by unauthorized third parties seeking access to or control over your account. Anti-malware is a term that is commonly used to describe various software products that may also be referred to as anti-virus or anti-spyware. Anti-malware software is used to attempt to prevent, detect, block, and remove adware, spyware, and other forms of malware such as keyloggers.
The Credit Union recommends that commercial (business) online banking users should perform an internal internet banking risk assessment and controls evaluation periodically.
If you forget your Username or Password, you should first utilize the "Forgot Username?" or "Forgot Password?" feature available on the Sign In webpage to assist you. However, if your Sign In is locked or disabled due to the use of an incorrect Username or Password, contact the Credit Union at 800-339-0496.
If you fail to maintain security of your Username and/or Password and we suffer a loss, we reserve the right to terminate your access to Online Banking under this Agreement. We may also take other actions or seek other remedies available to us in contract, at law, or in equity.
Online Banking can be accessed through the Ventura County Credit Union website at www.vccuonline.net or by using a downloadable application using compatible and supported mobile phones and/or other compatible and supported wireless devices (collectively, including phones, "Wireless Devices"). Online Banking is generally available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, although some or all of the services may not be available occasionally due to emergency or scheduled system maintenance.
You can perform the following transactions on all accounts which you are authorized and have been given access to:
Federal regulations restrict the number of transfers and/or withdrawals members may make from their savings or Money Market accounts using an audio response system (Telephone Teller), Online Banking, or automatic overdraft protection. This regulation affects savings and Money Market accounts but does not apply to checking accounts. During any statement period, you may not make more than six (6) withdrawals or transfers to another Credit Union account of yours or to a third party by means of a pre- authorized or automatic transfer. If you exceed the transfer limitations in any statement period, your savings or money market account may be subject to a fee or account closure.
We will not be required to complete a transfer or withdrawal from your account(s) if you do not have sufficient funds in the designated account(s). You agree to not use Online Banking to initiate a transaction that would cause the balance in the designated account(s) to go below zero. If you have a line of credit loan or credit card, you agree not to use Online Banking to initiate a transaction that would cause the outstanding balance of your line of credit loan or credit card to go above your credit limit. We will not be required to complete such a transaction, but if we do, you agree to pay us the excess amount or improperly withdrawn amount or transferred amount immediately upon our request.
Currently there is no monthly service fee for using Online Banking. However, the Credit Union reserves the right to implement a fee in the future. The Credit Union will notify you of any changes to the fee schedule as required by law. If at that time, you choose to discontinue using Online Banking, you must notify us in writing.
Your periodic statement will identify each electronic transaction. You will receive a monthly account statement for each month in which you initiate electronic transactions. If you do not initiate electronic transactions from your account, you will receive account statements at least quarterly.
You authorize us to obtain any information deemed necessary to process your request for access to Online Banking. Additionally, you agree that we will disclose information to third parties about your designated account(s) or the transactions you make:

In case of errors or questions about electronic fund transfers from your savings and checking accounts or if you need more information about a transfer on the statement or receipt, telephone us at the following number or send us a written notice to the following address as soon as you can. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem appears.
Call us at: (800) 339-0496;
Write to: Ventura County Credit UnionPO Box 6920Ventura, CA 93006-6920;
Fax to: (805) 339-4226
If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) business days. We will determine whether an error has occurred within ten (10) business days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within ten (10) business days for the amount you think is in error so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within ten (10) business days, we may not credit your account.
For errors involving new accounts or foreign-initiated transactions, we may take up to ninety (90) days to investigate your compliant or question. For new accounts, we may take up to twenty (20) business days to credit your account for the amount you think is in error.
We will tell you the results within three (3) business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.
You are responsible for all transactions you authorize using Online Banking services. If you permit someone else to use your Online Banking access codes, you are responsible for any transactions they authorize or conduct on any of your accounts.
TELL US AT ONCE if you believe your access code has been lost or stolen, if you believe someone has used your access code or otherwise accessed your accounts without your authority, or if you believe that an electronic fund transfer has been made without your permission. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. A written notification to us should follow your telephone call. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum overdraft line-of-credit). However, if you believe your access code has been lost or stolen, and you tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your access code, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone used your access code without your permission. If you do NOT tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your access code and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your access code without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.00.
Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, TELL US AT ONCE. If you do NOT tell us within 60 days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money lost after the 60 days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from making the transfers if you had told us in time.
If a good reason (such as a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.
If you believe your access code has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your accounts without your permission, contact the Credit Union immediately:
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 may be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable, for instance, if:
This Agreement is governed by the bylaws of the Credit Union, federal laws and regulations, and the laws and regulations of the state of California. Any disputes regarding this Agreement shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the court of the county in which the Credit Union is located.
You are liable to us for any losses, costs, or expenses we incur resulting from your failure to follow this Agreement. You authorize us to deduct any losses, costs, or expenses from your account without prior notice to you. If we bring a legal action to collect any amount due under or to enforce this Agreement, we shall be entitled, subject to applicable law, to payment of reasonable attorney’s fees and costs, including fees on any appeal, bankruptcy proceedings, and any postjudgment collection actions.
This Agreement is the contract which covers your and our rights and responsibilities concerning External Account Transfer Services offered to you by Ventura County Credit Union ("Credit Union") through our Online Banking site. In this Agreement, the words "you" and "yours" mean those who request and use the External Account Transfer Service. The words "we", "us," and "our" mean the Credit Union. This Agreement applies to your use of the Service and the portion of the Site through which the Service is offered. By accessing the Service, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to this Agreement. Please read this Agreement carefully. This Agreement outlines the legally binding terms and conditions for your use of the Service.
"Recipient Account" is the Account to which your funds will be credited.
"Transaction Account" is the Account from which your funds will be debited, or to which funds will be returned.
"Transfer Instruction" is the information provided by you to the Service for a transfer of funds to a Recipient Account.
"Service" means the External Account Transfer Service offered by Ventura County Credit Union.
"ACH Network" means the funds transfer system, governed by the NACHA Rules, which provides funds transfer services to participating financial institutions.
The External Account Transfer service enables you to request a transfer of funds (1) from your Ventura County Credit Union account to an Account that you own at another financial institution; or (2) From an Account that you own at another financial institution to your Ventura County Credit Union Account. Ventura County Credit Union uses the ACH Network to execute your External Account Transfer requests.
You represent and warrant that you are the sole owner (and not a joint tenant) of the Transaction Account and the Recipient Account and that you have all necessary legal right, power, and authority to transfer funds from the Transaction Account to the Recipient Account. Further, you represent and warrant that the Recipient Account is located in the United States.
When we receive a Transfer Instruction from you, you authorize us to debit your Transaction Account and remit funds on your behalf to the Recipient Account designated by you. You also authorize us to reverse a transfer from your Recipient Account if the debit is returned from the Transaction Account for any reason, including but not limited to nonsufficient funds.
We will use reasonable efforts to make all your transfers properly. However, we shall incur no liability if we are unable to complete any transfers initiated by you because of the existence of any one or more of the following circumstances:
It is your responsibility to ensure the accuracy of any information that you enter into the Service, and for informing us as soon as possible if you become aware that this information is inaccurate. We will make a reasonable effort to stop or recover a transfer made to the wrong Recipient Account once informed, but we do not guarantee such recovery and will bear no responsibility or liability for damages resulting from incorrect information entered by you.
After agreeing to this Agreement and providing any additional information requested, you may enroll accounts that you hold at other financial institutions (each a "Third Party Account" in the External Account Transfer Service). You authorize us to verify a Third Party Account through the use of a trial transfer, in which one or more low volume payments will be credited to and debited from the Third Party Account. The trial credit will always occur before the trial debit and will always be of the same or lesser amount. In either case, we will then ask you to verify the amount of each deposit made into such account and each withdrawal made from such account. These accounts are referred to as "Verified Accounts".
Funds are credited to my account within three (3) business days. The Business Day on which a request for transfer is made begins at 4:00pm Pacific Standard Time (PST) and ends at 4:00pm Pacific Standard Time of the following day. (For example: If Monday and Tuesday are both Business Days, I can make a "Monday" request up until 4:00pm PST)
You may cancel a transfer at any time until it begins processing. We will, to the extent permitted by law, make reasonable attempts to return any unclaimed, refused, refunded, prohibited, or denied transfer to your Transaction Account. If this is unsuccessful (for example, the Transaction Account has been closed) we will make reasonable attempts to mail you a paper check.
If you as a Sender desire to stop any transfer that has already been processed, you must contact the credit union. Although we will make a reasonable effort to accommodate your request, we will have no liability for failing to do so. We may also require you to present your request in writing within fourteen (14) days. The charge for each request will be the current charge as set forth in the applicable fee schedule.
You may view 12 months of your transaction history by logging into your Online Banking Account with Ventura County Credit Union. You agree to review your transactions by this method instead of receiving receipts by mail.
As a condition of using the service, I understand that I am prohibited from using the Service for activities that (a) violate any law, statute, ordinance or regulation; (b) payments related to illegal gambling, illegal gaming and/or illegal activity with an entry fee or a prize, including but not limited to casino games, sports betting, horse or greyhound racing, lottery tickets, other ventures that facilitate gambling, games of skill and sweepstakes.
Applicable fees will be disclosed in the Fee Schedule. Any applicable fees will be charged regardless of whether the Service was used, except for fees that are specifically use-based. There may be a charge for additional transactions and other optional services. You agree to pay such charges and authorize us to deduct the calculated amount for the applicable Account you hold with us, whether a Transaction Account or Recipient Account, for these amounts and any additional charges that may be incurred by you. You are responsible for any and all telephone access fees and/or Internet service fees that may be assessed by your telephone and/or Internet service provider.
You agree to ensure that the contact information in you Online Banking Profile is current and accurate. This includes, but is not limited to, name, address, phone numbers and email addresses. Changes can be made within Online Banking. All changes made are effective immediately. We are not responsible for any transfer processing errors or fees incurred if you do not provide accurate Transaction Account, Recipient Account, or contact information.
We reserve the right to refuse any transfer to a Recipient Account. We will notify you promptly if we decide to refuse to transfer funds to a Recipient Account. This notification is not required if you attempt to make a prohibited transfer under this Agreement.
