This Online Service Electronic Funds Transfer Disclosure and Agreement as amended from time to time ("Agreement") sets forth the terms and conditions governing the use of "Online Account Access" and "Bill Payment" services (collectively "Online Services"). Disclosure information that applies to "Online Account Access" and "Electronic Bill Payment" services offered by NEFCU is given below. Read this Agreement completely and retain it with your personal records. By using the "Online Account Access" and "Electronic Bill Payment" services offered by NEFCU, you are agreeing to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement. In this Agreement, the terms "you" and "your(s)" refer to the member, and the terms "we", "us", "our(s)" and "Credit Union" refer to NEFCU (Nassau Educators Federal Credit Union). This Agreement is incorporated by this reference and becomes a part of NEFCU's Electronic Funds Transfer Disclosure. This Agreement, incorporated into any other terms and conditions of your Electronic Funds Transfer Disclosure and Agreement, remain in force as a revised agreement.
By accessing the Online Account Services, you acknowledge electronic receipt of the Credit Union's Online Service Electronic Funds Transfer Disclosure and Agreement. You agree that you have read this Agreement in its entirety and will abide by its terms and conditions.
You are responsible to prevent unauthorized access to your accounts. NEFCU has taken all of the necessary security precautions to ensure that our Online Account Access service is secure and that your financial information remains confidential and a secure site. The safeguarding of your Online Account Access: User ID and password is an essential element in protecting the confidentiality of your accounts. As an authorized owner on your accounts, you assume primary responsibility in protecting the security of your accounts by not revealing your social security number, user ID and password or account information to any unauthorized owner on any of your accounts with the Credit Union, even your closest friends and family members for your own protection. These numbers should be memorized and known only by you.
You should never leave your computer or mobile device unattended while you are still signed on your Online Account Access and should always log off when you are finished using your Online Account Access. You should change your password immediately if you have reason to believe that your password may not be secure and contact the Credit Union to verify that all transactions posted against the account were authorized by you or another authorized user on the account.
Online Account Access Password: Once registered and approved for online banking access, you will log in with the login credentials indicated on your application. Once you log into Online Banking for the first time, you will be prompted to change your USER ID and password.
If you forget your Online Account Access password contact the Credit Union and you will be issued a temporary one, one that you will be required to change when you log on to Online Account Access. You should not select a password that someone may be able to guess, such as your address or date of birth.
Touch ID, Fingerprint ID or any other Biometric login (for supported mobile devices only): Touch ID and Fingerprint ID allows you to use your fingerprint to login securely instead of entering your user id and password. Your user id and password will not be stored on the device.
By enabling Touch ID or Fingerprint ID, every person with an enrolled fingerprint on the device will have access to your account. Review the enrolled fingerprints to make sure that each person is authorized to access the personal and financial information available on the NEFCU app.
Fingerprints are only stored on your device. NEFCU does not see or store your fingerprint information.
If Touch ID is enabled on your mobile device and it is lost or stolen, you should log into iCould at https://www.icloud.com/ and remotely wipe your device. Once you erase the data on the device, you should contact NEFCU to inform us of the lost or stolen device.
NEFCU has taken the necessary steps to protect the safety of your account information over the Internet. The confidentiality of your accounts is maintained through the use of multiple secured networks, multiple data encryption techniques, firewalls and password protection. Your Online Account Access session has a time-out feature. This time-out feature will automatically log you off the session if you have exceeded the length of time-out between using different screens within Online Account Access. Once you exceed the time span allowed by the time-out feature, you will need to sign onto Online Account Access again if you are not finished with your session. This provides increased security and helps reduce the risk that an unauthorized user can access your account information if you leave your computer unattended without logging off.
NEFCU may use traditional login information as well as "cookies" to identify you and/or the device from which you are logging in. NEFCU may also use additionally security features such as challenge questions, one-time passcodes, downloaded malware protection and online banking activity tracking tools to protect members’ information and identities when banking online. These methods may change from time to time based on advancements in technology.
Online Account Access will normally be available 24-hours a day, seven days a week, with the exception of any computer system outages or system maintenance. In the event that the system is unavailable, NEFCU will notify you with a message that will appear on the NEFCU website.
All transactions processed for your accounts or loans within Online Account Access will be posted to your accounts immediately if processed during our normal business hours. Any transactions processed outside of our normal business hours, during a scheduled Holiday or a day we are closed will be processed the next business day.
You will receive a monthly statement listing all the payments and/or transfers performed during that month using Online Banking and Bill Payment. You are required to keep the Credit Union informed of your current address to insure correct mailing of monthly statements.
The Credit Union may change the terms and conditions of this Agreement from time to time by mailing written notice to you at your address as it appears on our records. If any change results in greater cost or liability to you, you will be given at least thirty (30) days prior notice of the change. Prior notice may not be given where an immediate change in terms or conditions is necessary to maintain the integrity of the system and/or the security of our Online Services or designated accounts.
You may terminate this Agreement with us at any time. The Credit Union reserves the right to terminate this agreement at any time. We may do so immediately if:
You agree to pay the Credit Union our reasonable expenses, including court costs and attorney's fees, for enforcing our rights under this Agreement.
The Credit Union may from time to time offer additional services to you in connection with your accounts. Some services may be at no additional cost to you and others may involve a specified fee. You understand that the Credit Union is not obligated to offer such services and may withdraw or change them at any time.
Failure or delay by the Credit Union to enforce any provision of this Agreement or to exercise any right or remedy available under this Agreement, or at law, shall not be deemed a waiver and the Credit Union expressly reserves the right to enforce such provision, or to exercise such right or remedy, at a later date.
Except as stated otherwise in the Agreement, this Agreement does not alter or amend any of the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with the Credit Union.
If any part of this Agreement should be held to be unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect

(a) Consumer liability. 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 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 a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time period.
(b) Contact in event of unauthorized transfer. If you believe that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, call or write us at the telephone number or address listed at the bottom of this brochure.

If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days.

If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days (90 days if the transfer involved a new account, a point-of-sale transaction, or a foreign-initiated transfer) to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days (20 business days if the transfer involved a new account) 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 10 business days, we may not credit your account. Your account is considered a new account for the first 30 days after the first deposit is made, unless each of you already has an established account with us before this account is opened.
We will tell you the results within three 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.
