We reserve the right to limit the types and numbers of accounts eligible and the right to refuse to make any transaction you request through the Service. We may also reserve the right to modify the scope of the Service at any time. The Service may not be accessible or may have limited service over some network carriers. The Service also may not be supported by all Devices. LAFFCU cannot guarantee and is not responsible for the availability of data services provided by your mobile carrier, such as data outages or “out of network” issues.

Use of the Service:

We may modify the Service from time to time at our sole discretion. In the event of any modifications, you are responsible for making sure you understand how to use the Service as modified.

You understand that those agreements may provide for fees, limitations, and restrictions which might impact your use of the Service (such as data usage or text messaging charges imposed on you by your mobile service provider). You also agree to be solely responsible for all such fees, limitations, and restrictions. You agree that only your mobile service provider is responsible for its products and services and you also agree to resolve any issues or problems with your provider directly with the provider without involving us.

You agree to review your Account disclosures carefully, as they may include transaction limitations and fees which may apply to your use of the Service.

Equipment and Software:

LAFFCU does not guarantee that your Device or mobile phone service provider will be compatible with the Service. Mobile phones and other Devices with internet capabilities are susceptible to viruses. You are responsible to ensure that your Device is protected from and free of viruses, worms, Trojan horses, or other similar harmful components (collectively referred to as “viruses”) which could result in damage to programs, files, and/or your phone or could result in information being intercepted by a third party. LAFFCU WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHICH MAY RESULT FROM SUCH VIRUSES. LAFFCU will also not be responsible if any non public personal information is accessed via the Service due to any of the above named viruses residing or being contracted by your Device at any time or from any source.

The Credit Union is not responsible for errors or delays or your inability to access the Service caused by your Device. We are not responsible for the cost of upgrading the Device to remain current with the Service. We are not responsible for any damage to the Device or the data within.

You must have sufficient funds available in the selected Accounts at the time the transfer is received, including available overdraft protection (if applicable). We may process transfers that exceed your available balance at our sole discretion. Applicable fees may apply as permitted by Law.

Federal Regulations limit the number of transfers allowed from a savings or money market account per month. anytimeBanking and anytimeMobile transfers count towards this limit. Each transfer from a savings or money market account using anytimeBanking or anytimeMobile is counted as one of the six limited transactions permitted each month. We may also limit the type, frequency, and amount of transfers for security purposes and may change or impose the limits without notice, at our option as permitted by Law.

LAFFCU reserves the right to impose limits on the amount(s) and/or number of deposits that you submit using the anytimeDeposit service and to modify such limits from time to time. If we permit you to make a deposit in excess of these limits, such deposit will still be subject to these terms and conditions, and LAFFCU will not be obligated to allow such a deposit at other times.

Transactions completed after that time or on Saturdays, Sundays, or holidays may be processed on the first business day following the transaction date. Please see our “Disclosure of Delayed Funds Availability Policy” for information about hold periods that we may place on checks you may deposit.

You agree to retain the Item for 60 days after it has been credited to your Account, and thereafter to either destroy any Item of which you have transmitted an image, or to otherwise render it incapable of transmission or presentment. If you make more than two anytimeDeposit errors within any 60 day period, access may be revoked. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold LA Financial Credit Union and any LA Financial Credit Union’s third party service provider(s) harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, liability, or expenses (including attorneys’ fees and expenses) to which we or our service provider may become subject as a result of an item you deposited via anytimeDeposit being presented for duplicate payment.

Anti malware software is used to attempt to prevent, detect, block, and remove adware, spyware, and other forms of malware such as keyloggers.

Number to Call to Report Suspicious Activity:

If you notice any suspicious account activity or if you believe that your log in ID or password may have been lost or stolen, or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your Account without your permission, or if you suspect any fraudulent activity on your Account, you must notify us immediately by calling 1.800.894.1200. You may also notify us in writing at LA Financial Federal Credit Union, P.O. Box 6015, Pasadena, CA 91105.

You agree not to use the Service or the content or information delivered through the Service in any way that would be considered illegal or violate any law or statute. Harassment or threatening language will result in the closure or suspension of your Account. You also agree not to make commercial use of the Service or resell, lease, rent, or distribute access to the Service.


Unless caused by our intentional misconduct or gross negligence, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless LA Financial Federal Credit Union, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents, service providers, and licensors from any and all third party claims, liability, damages, expenses, and costs (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees) caused by or arising from third party claims, disputes, actions; allegation of infringement, misuse, or misappropriation based on information, data, files, or otherwise in connection with the Service; and/or your violation or any law or rights of a third party or your use or use by a third party of the Service.


LAFFCU reserves the right to terminate the Service, in whole or in part, at any time with or without cause and without prior written notice as allowed by Law. In the event you provide a termination notice, we may (but are not obligated to) immediately discontinue making previously authorized transfers, including recurring transfers and other transfers previously authorized, but not made. We also reserve the right to suspend the Service either temporarily or permanently in situations deemed appropriate in our sole and absolute discretion, including if a security breech has been attempted or has occurred. We may consider repeated incorrect attempts to enter my log in ID or password as an indication of an attempted security breech.

Termination of the Service does not affect your obligations under this Agreement in respect to occurrences before termination.

Your Liability for Unauthorized Transactions and Advisability of Prompt Reporting:

You must tell us AT ONCE if you believe your log in ID or password has been lost or stolen. 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 log in ID or password has been lost or stolen, and you tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone used your log in ID and password without your permission.

If you do NOT tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your log in ID and/or password and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your log in ID and password 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, including those made through the Service, you must tell us at once. If you do NOT tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the sixty (60) days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time.

If you can document a good reason (such as a long trip or hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time period.
