Password Protection/Responsibility. You are assigned a Password when you apply and are approved for

one else can gain access to your information. In addition to your Password, initially, you will be required to answer six (6)
security questions, select an image, and create a phrase to insure your DirectConnect℠ security; to access your accounts via
MobileConnect℠, initially, you will be required to register your mobile device by entering a security code delivered to
the phone number we have on record for your membership. In the event you forget your Password or have trouble logging into your
account, contact SFCU's Information Systems Department at 888-222-8571 and you will be assigned a new temporary Password.
SFCU recognizes the importance of selecting Passwords, and securing those Passwords. SFCU has implemented the following Password policy:
Your new Password must:
- be between 8 and 15 characters long.
- not contain more than two consecutive characters from your user ID or full name (i.e. if your name is "Jonathan", you cannot have "ath" in your password).
- not use spaces, apostrophes (') or angle brackets (< >).
- meet three of the four following requirements:
- contain one uppercase letter (A - Z).
- contain one lowercase letter (a - z).
- contain 1 number (0 - 9).
- contain one non-alphabetic character (i.e. !, @, #, $, %).
- Passwords are case sensitive: abcde1 is not the same as ABCDE1.
You will be locked out after 3 invalid login attempts
Use of your Security Password. You agree not to allow anyone to gain access to the Services or to let anyone know
your Password used with the Services. You further agree that SFCU has no control as to the persons who have access to your personal
computer or mobile device and your Password. SFCU will not be liable for any unauthorized access to your personal computer or mobile
device using your Password. You agree that it is your responsibility to initiate and maintain the highest level of password security
procedures to prevent any unauthorized access to your personal computer, mobile device, or unauthorized use of your Password.
Notice of Unauthorized Access. If you believe that someone has obtained access to your account without your
permission, immediately call the Internet Service Coordinator at SFCU, 888-222-8571, during regular business hours.
For your protection, sign off after every session.
DirectConnect℠ and MobileConnect℠ Encryption. Data security between your computer or mobile device and
SFCU servers is handled through a security protocol called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL provides data encryption, server
authentication and message integrity for an Internet connection. In addition, SSL provides a security "handshake" that is used to
initiate the connection. This handshake results in the client and server agreeing on the level of security they use and fulfills any
authentication requirements for the connection.
SFCU will use commercially reasonable measures, consistent with industry standards, to maintain a reasonable level of security
over the information contained in the electronically delivered account statement. The SFCU system currently supports and requires
SSL data encryption at the 128 bit level, the current standard in today's browser software.
You understand that these industry standards are dynamic and constantly developing. By accepting this Agreement, you acknowledge
and understand that there are risks to electronic delivery of account statement, including, but not limited to, delay or failure
of delivery due to technical difficulties, weather conditions, matters beyond our reasonable control, or interruption and/or
alteration of such account statement by third parties in spite of SFCU's commercially reasonable security measures.
By accepting this Agreement, you represent that you have considered our security measures, and find that our security measures are
commercially reasonable. In reaching this conclusion, you have considered the historical and potential future content of your
statement; the risks associated with electronic delivery of account statement, and our security procedures. If you conclude that
our security procedures cease to be commercially reasonable in the future, you must terminate this Agreement immediately in
accordance with the procedure outlined above.

Security. In order to maintain secure communications and reduce fraud, you agree to protect the security of your
numbers, codes, marks, signs, public keys or other means of identification. SFCU reserves the right to block access to Services
to maintain or restore security to SFCU systems if SFCU reasonably believes your password have been or may be obtained or are
being used or may be used by an unauthorized person(s). Subject to the requirements of state and federal law, and the terms and
provisions of this Agreement, you are liable and responsible for all DirectConnect℠ or MobileConnect℠ transactions made using
your means of identification, whether those transactions are made by you or any person you authorize, permit or enable to have
your means of identification (even if the person exceeds your authority) or by any person who obtains through you, by whatever means,
your means of identification. If you have given someone your means of identification and wish to terminate their authority, or if
you know or believe that your means of identification otherwise is compromised, you must notify SFCU so that SFCU can take the
necessary steps to change the means of identification (see generally, the "Unauthorized Transfers" section below). You agree to
defend, hold harmless and indemnify SFCU from and against any and all claims of any nature arising out of any such access by a
person you have authorized, permitted or enabled to have access to your SFCU accounts via DirectConnect℠ or MobileConnect℠.
You understand that electronic messages and communications sent via the Internet are not necessarily secure and that SFCU does not
recommend that you send information which you consider confidential concerning your accounts via the Internet. You agree to take
reasonable precautions to safeguard your password and/or any other means of identification, to not leave your device unattended
while using DirectConnect℠ or MobileConnect℠ and to always exit completely (log out) after using it.
Transfers and Payments. When you instruct SFCU to transfer funds between your accounts through DirectConnect℠
or MobileConnect℠, you authorize SFCU to withdraw the necessary funds from the account you designate. As with any funds transfer
request, whether or not utilizing DirectConnect℠ or MobileConnect℠, you agree that you will instruct SFCU to make a withdrawal
only when a sufficient balance is or will be available in your designated account. SFCU will not be obligated to act on any
withdrawal instruction from you if sufficient funds, including overdrafts, are not available in the account(s) you designate.
Fund Transfers through DirectConnect℠ or MobileConnect℠ between some of your accounts may be limited. Federal
regulations limit the number of pre-authorized, automatic or on-line banking transfers from what is commonly known as a share
(savings) account or a market share account to no more than six transfers and withdrawals, or a combination of such transfers
and withdrawals, per calendar month or statement cycle, to another of your accounts or to a third party by means of an online
(web based), preauthorized, or automatic transfer. If you exceed the transfer limitations in any statement period, we may refuse
or reverse a transfer and we may assess fees against, suspend, or close your account with SFCU. Please refer to our Service
Fee Schedule for the charges.
Canceling Transfers and Payments. You cannot cancel a one-time immediate transfer after it has been submitted and
the information has been transmitted to us.
Placing a stop payment through DirectConnect℠. A stop payment request will be effective immediately upon
your request. A stop payment fee will apply for every stop payment you request. Please refer to our Service Fee Schedule for the charges.
YOU MAY NOT STOP PAYMENT OF ELECTRONIC FUND TRANSFERS ON DirectConnect℠. Please contact the Bookkeeping
Department for this request.
Fee Schedule. There are currently no monthly maintenance or transaction fees for DirectConnect℠,
MobileConnect℠ or E-Statement Services. However, you are responsible for charges by any Internet or Mobile Service Provider
you use. Your use of these Services does not eliminate, waive or change any generally applicable fees and charges that SFCU
imposes on certain transactions or situations involving your accounts. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, we note
that our Service Fee Schedule (which can be found on our Web Site by clicking on the link to Disclosures) will apply to certain
transactions while using DirectConnect℠ or MobileConnect℠.
Communications. You agree that you may receive this Agreement, related disclosures and all other communications
from SFCU electronically and that SFCU may respond to you with an electronic communication, even if your communication that
we are responding to was not originally in electronic form. If SFCU sends you an electronic communication, SFCU will consider
it received within three (3) calendar days of the date that it was sent, just like communications via U.S. Mail, regardless of
whether or not you sign on to your specified e-mail account within that time frame.
To the extent permissible under state or federal law, electronic communications that you send to SFCU will not be considered
effective until we receive them and have a reasonable opportunity to act on such communications. It is therefore important that
you consider reporting situations requiring immediate attention to us by calling SFCU toll-free at 888-222-8571, in addition
to providing electronic communication. SFCU may require written confirmation of any communication as well. Note that certain
communications required or permitted in this Agreement must be sent in writing by mail.
Electronic Mail. If you send SFCU an electronic mail message at firstname.lastname@example.org,
SFCU will be deemed to have received it on the following business day. SFCU will have a reasonable time to respond to your e-mail.
You should not rely on electronic mail if you need to communicate with SFCU immediately (e.g., if you
need to report an unauthorized transaction from one of your accounts, or if you need to stop a payment that is scheduled to occur).
Financial Institution's Liability. 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 will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions.
We will not be liable, for instance:
- If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer.
- If you have overdraft protection and the transfer would exceed the available funds.
- If your computer, a mobile device, the software, phone lines, any browser, our computer system or any aspect of DirectConnect℠ or MobileConnect℠ were not working properly or were temporarily unavailable and you knew about the breakdown or problem when you started the transfers or transactions.
- If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire, flood, Acts of God, Acts of War) prevent the transfer, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken.
- If the funds are subject to legal process or other encumbrance restricting such transfer.
- There may be other exceptions stated in our Agreement with you.
Unauthorized Transfers - Member Liability. Your Liability for Unauthorized Use. You are responsible for all
transfers you authorize using DirectConnect℠ or MobileConnect℠ under this Agreement. If you permit other persons to use your
Password, you are responsible for any transactions they authorize or conduct on any of your accounts.
Tell us AT ONCE if you think your Password or other DirectConnect℠ or MobileConnect℠ identification has been lost,
stolen or used (or may be used) without your permission, or your DirectConnect℠ or MobileConnect℠ has otherwise been (or may be)
used without your permission. Telephoning is the best way of minimizing your possible losses.
If you tell us within 2 business days after you discover your DirectConnect℠ or MobileConnect℠ Password or other means to
access your account has been lost, stolen or used without your permission, your liability is no more than $50.00 should someone
access your account without your permission. If you do not tell us within 2 business days after you learn of such loss or theft, and we can prove that we could have prevented the unauthorized use of your Password or other means to access your account if you had told us, you could be liable for as much as $500.00.
If you do not tell us within 60 days after the monthly statement was mailed or E-Statement availability notification was sent
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 hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we may
extend the time period.
If you believe your Password has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account
without your permission, call us immediately at 888-222-8571 or write to us at
