You further agree to indemnify, defend and hold SFCU harmless from any claims, suits, liability, damages, costs, expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) or adverse action of any kind that arises out of or relates to, directly or indirectly, your illegal or prohibited use of an SFCU account or service, including without limitation the Online Banking Service described herein.

SFCU is not responsible for providing any equipment, software, services or advice related to equipment necessary to interface with our system, and is not responsible for any error in connections, transmissions or otherwise regarding any system, software, entries or instructions.

You agree that when you use services, offered through Online Banking Services, but not affiliated with the SFCU, you will be subject to any terms and conditions established by those third-party vendors, and that this agreement does not amend any of those terms and conditions. You agree that only the third parties are responsible for such services and if you have any problems with these third parties, you should contact them directly.

Our business days are Monday through Friday (Saturday at limited locations) except Federal holidays. When a Federal holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, either the preceding Friday or the following Monday will not be a Business or Banking Day.
Online Banking Services are generally accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week, except when Online Banking Services may be inaccessible as needed for system maintenance or due to an unscheduled outage or other event beyond the control of the Credit Union.
You can use SFCU Online Banking Services to access your accounts with us. Some of these services may require an account linked to a valid SFCU Access Device (such as a debit card) and/or a checking account. Our Online Banking Services allow you to:
If you also select the Bill Payment Service, you can pay bills either on an automatic, recurring basis or periodically at your request. We will make reasonable efforts to process a fund transfer or bill payment on the same business day of your "send on date”, if we receive your instructions before 10:30pm ET. This is when payments are retrieved for processing. If you schedule a fund transfer or bill payment for a future date, we will process the transaction after the close of business on the future date specified by you, if the specified future date is a business day. If we receive your instruction after 10:30pm ET on a business day, or if the date you request for a future transfer or payment is not a business day, we will process the transaction on our next business day.
When you schedule a funds transfer or bill payment using the Online Banking Services, you authorize us to withdraw the necessary funds from your account with us. We deduct the amount of your funds transfer or bill payment from your account on the date we process your instruction.
To help ensure that your payments arrive on time, you must schedule your payments to be processed at least 10 business days before the payment due date. This generally allows sufficient time for the payee to receive and post your payments.
You may cancel a pending fund transfer or bill payment transaction. However, to do so, the cancellation must be initiated while the bill payment transaction is in a pending status and not processed.
Minimum amount of each bill payment item: $1.00
Maximum amount of each bill payment item: $5,000.00
Maximum amount of bill payments that will be paid daily from your accounts: $10,000.00
You agree that the following payments are prohibited through the bill pay service:
You acknowledge and agree that we have no obligation to make any of these prohibited payments, and have no liability to you and or any other person whatsoever arising or related to our refusal to make any such payment.
Your account will be assessed an NSF/Returned Item/Courtesy Pay/Premium OD Usage fee, set forth in the current Savings Rates and Fees brochure for each item we pay or return against your overdrawn account.
Your Online Banking Services remain in effect until terminated by you or us. You may cancel your Online Banking Services at any time by notifying us of your intent to cancel in writing to us at Securityplus FCU, Member Service Department, PO Box 7560, Baltimore, MD 21207-0560, via e-mail through the "contact us” link on our website, or by calling 410-281-6200 or toll free at 866-473-2758. This cancellation applies only to your Online Banking Services and does not terminate your other relationships with us.
We may terminate your participation in the Online Banking Services for any or no reason including without limitation inactivity, in our sole and absolute discretion, at any time without prior notice to you. We may notify you in advance of any termination, but we are not obligated to do so. Further, the Online Banking Service is available only to members in good standing. If at any time we determine that you do not meet our criteria for this service, we may terminate your participation without notice and without liability to you. SFCU will have no liability or obligation to you whatsoever with regard to any transaction after the date of termination. Termination of your participation in the Online Banking Services will automatically terminate any pending payments.
You are responsible for keeping your Password and account data confidential. We are entitled to act on transaction instructions received using your Password, and you agree that the use of your Password will authenticate your identity and verify the instructions you have provided to us and have the same effect as your signature authorizing the transactions. If you authorize other persons to use your Password in any manner, your authorization will be considered unlimited in the amount and manner until you have notified us in writing that you have revoked the authorization. You are responsible for any transactions made by such persons until you notify us that transactions or instructions regarding your account by that person are no longer authorized and we have had a reasonable opportunity to act upon the change of your Password.
If we do not complete a transfer to or from your account or cancel a transfer as properly requested on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we may be liable for your losses or damages. However, our sole responsibility for an error in a transfer will be to correct the error. Under no circumstances will SFCU be liable for any indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages. In states which do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages, our liability to you is limited to the extent permitted by applicable law.
There are some exceptions to our liability for processing transactions on your accounts. We will not be liable, for instance:
