You are not permitted to stop payment on any purchase, withdrawal, payment or transfer originated by use of the RCU Credit Card, Check Card, ATM Card, business online banking Immediate Transfers, CompuTeller Transfers, or preauthorized drafts, and RCU has no obligation to honor any such stop payment request by you. If RCU does not have a reasonable time to act on a stop payment before RCU has accepted the item, or before RCU has paid the item in cash, or before the item has been deposited or received for deposit for credit in an account of a customer with the payer bank, then RCU may be entitled to enforce payment of the item against the drawer.

The Bank may also provide information about your account(s) to persons or companies RCU believes would use the information for reasonable purposes, such as when a prospective creditor seeks to verify information you may have given in a credit application or a merchant calls to verify a check you have written. In addition, RCU routinely informs a credit bureau when accounts are closed by RCU because they were not handled properly. RCU may also seek information about you from others, such as a credit bureau, in connection with the opening or maintaining of your account. You authorize these transfers of information.

VII. Business Accounts and Business Administrator
A. Business Administrator Responsibility
You are required to provide a Business Administrator. The Business Administrator identified in the enrollment process and authorized by the Organization Resolution must be a signer on the business deposit accounts and will select and provide to RCU an initial individual sign-on identification ("sign-on ID"). Once we enter the sign-on ID into our system and provide the Business Administrator with an initial online password, the Business Administrator will be able to set up and manage your business online banking service by using his/her sign-on ID, and online password and security questions ("Online Authorization Information"). The Business Administrator will be able to set up any desired other authorized persons (collectively called "Sub Users"), designating the levels of account access and privileges, and will be responsible for providing these Sub Users with their respective sign-on ID and Online Authorization Information. The Business Administrator, through business online banking, will be able to enroll in business bill pay and set up any other Sub Users, designating the levels of account access and permissions, and will be responsible for providing these Sub Users with their respective sign-on information for business bill pay. RCU will require a new Organization Resolution to change the status of a Business Administrator.
B. Security Procedure For All Transactions Conducted Through business online banking
1. The following describes the security procedure you and your Sub Users agree to follow when providing us with instructions to make any and all funds transfers (including intra-financial institution transfers and bill payment orders) from or to your accounts using the business online banking service. The purpose of this Security Procedure is to verify the authenticity of a funds transfer instruction (or request for cancellation or amendment) given through the use of business online banking and not to detect an error in the transmission or content of a funds transfer instruction. No security procedure for the detection of any error has been agreed upon between you and RCU. You are strictly responsible to establish and maintain the procedures to safeguard against unauthorized transmissions.
2. You agree to take reasonable steps to maintain the confidentiality of the security procedures and any Sub User sign-on ID, Online Authorization Information, security devices and related instructions you provided or that are provided by us in connection with these security procedures.
3. In managing your business online banking service, a Sub User may specify the accounts to be charged for. You are responsible for all transfers and withdrawals your Sub Users conduct using business online banking even if your Sub Users exceed the authority you have given them. We have no knowledge of any limitations you may have in place for your Users and we will not be responsible to you or to any third parties for any transactions that exceed limitations you may have in place. If you or your Sub Users permit non-authorized persons to use business online banking, your Sub User Sign-on IDs and/or your Online Authorization Information, you are responsible for any transactions they conduct.
4. The Business Administrator will furnish the Sub User Sign-on ID and initial Online Authorization Information for all Sub Users. After signing on for the first time, each Sub User will select his/her own online password. We will not be provided with Online Authorization Information.
5. You and your Sub Users agree to protect the secrecy of the Sub User Sign-on IDs, Online Authorization Information and account data accessed via business online banking, and we have no responsibility if you or a Sub User discloses the same. You and your Sub Users also agree to limit distribution of this information to only those authorized by you to access business online banking. You must notify us immediately by calling us at the telephone number listed on our web site if you believe or suspect any of your accounts have been accessed without your permission or a Sub User Sign-on ID or Online Authorization Information has been used without your permission to access your accounts. The occurrence or unauthorized access will not affect any transaction made in good faith by RCU prior to the receipt of such notification and within a reasonable time period to prevent unauthorized transactions. For security purposes, we recommend that Sub Users memorize their own Online Authorization Information and Sub User Sign-on IDs and not write them down. The system gives your Sub Users the ability to change online passwords regularly and you may require that Sub Users change online passwords regularly, including when Sub Users are deleted.
6. A Sub User may only log on to business online banking using his/her correct Sub User Sign-on ID and Online Authorization Information. Once the Sub User has entered his/her correct Sub User Sign-on ID and Online Authorization Information, the Sub User will be able to conduct any transactions consistent with the privileges and levels of access which have been granted the Sub User by the Business Administrator or another Sub User who has been granted authority to manage Sub Users. We have no knowledge of the privileges and levels of access granted individual Sub Users.
7. RCU may rely on the Sub User Sign-on ID and Online Authorization Information provided by the individual submitting the funds transfer instruction. RCU has no responsibility for verifying Sub User Sign-on ID and Online Authorization Information.
C. Organization Resolution Information
Any organization resolution ON FILE WITH US giving authority for business online banking service supersedes any resolution, signature card or other document on file with us that limits authority over any specific account or all of your accounts with us. A change in the authority over any specific account or all of your accounts with us made in any resolution, signature card or other document on file with us will NOT change this Agreement, or any accompanying Organization Resolution.
D. Authorization For Transactions
You agree that the Business Administrator identified in the Organization Resolution ON FILE WITH US has authority to establish the business online banking service for your Organization and establish additional Sub Users with the access capability and privileges as determined by the Business Administrator in establishing and managing your business online banking service. You agree that each individual who has been issued a Sub User Sign-on ID and Online Authorization Information has general authority from your Organization to give instructions and authorize transactions with respect to your accounts through business online banking, including general authority over the movement of your Organization's funds between your accounts at RCU and to perform inquiries on your accounts. You agree that RCU has full authorization from your Organization to rely and act upon any instructions received from Sub Users without further inquiry. Organization acknowledges it is strictly responsible for establishing and maintaining the procedures to safeguard against unauthorized transmissions. Organization warrants that no individual will be allowed to initiate transfers in the absence of proper supervision and safeguards, and agrees to take full responsibility for all transactions completed by organization.
E. Separate Account Agreements And Disclosures
Each of your accounts at RCU is also governed by the separate account agreement you have with us for the account and the applicable account disclosures ("Account Agreement and Disclosures", "Account Information and Fee Schedule" and "Dividend Rate Schedule") that have been delivered to you. All Agreements applicable to your various accounts or loan relationships with us shall continue in full force and effect except as specifically modified by this Agreement, and shall be applicable to all transactions initiated by use of a Sub User Sign-on ID and Online Authorization Information. However, if any such account is an account requiring two or more signatures, all signature requirements are hereby waived by you and all signers.
In addition, you and all signers agree to any transaction initiated by the use of a Sub User Sign-on ID and Online Authorization Information and agree to be bound by the transaction.
F. Lawful Activities
Any financial service provided by RCU may be used for any transaction permitted by law. You agree that illegal use of any financial service including, but not limited to the business online banking service, will be deemed an action of default and/or breach of contract and such service and/or other related services may be terminated at RCU's discretion. You further agree, should illegal use occur, to waive the right to sue for such illegal activity directly or indirectly related to it. You also agree to indemnify and hold RCU harmless from any suits or other legal action or liability, directly or indirectly, resulting from such illegal use. You are responsible for ensuring that Sub Users are aware of this provision. You will be responsible for any illegal transactions or use of the business online banking service by Sub Users.
