Mobile Check Deposit is designed to allow you to make deposits of checks (“original checks”) to your accounts from home or other remote locations by scanning the original checks and delivering the digital images and associated deposit information (”images”) to us or our processor with your Mobile Device.
We will establish limits on the dollar amount and/or number of items or deposits from time to time. If you attempt to initiate a deposit in excess of these limits, we may reject your deposit. If we permit you to make a deposit in excess of these limits, such deposits will still be subject to the terms of this agreement, and we will not be obligated to allow such deposits at other times. Default limits will be set to $2,500.00 per day. Amendments may be made to these limits on a case by case basis.
You agree to electronically capture and deposit only checks (i.e., drafts drawn on a credit union, savings and loan or bank, and payable on demand.) Checks must be drawn on United States financial institutions.
You agree that you will not use Mobile Check Deposit to deposit:
- Savings bonds, Canadian checks, and foreign checks.
- Checks payable to any person or entity other than you (i.e., payable to another party and then endorsed to you). The payee on the check must match the title on the account exactly.
- Third-party checks that are payable to anyone other than you.
- Checks payable to you and another party who is not a joint owner on the account.
- Checks that contain evidence of alteration, or that you know or suspect, or should know or suspect, are fraudulent or otherwise not authorized by the owner of the account on which the check is drawn.
- Checks stamped with a “non-negotiable” watermark.
- Checks that are stale dated (six months or older) or postdated (dated in advance of the date you deposit it).
Each image must provide all information on the front and back of the original check at the time presented to you by the drawer, including, but not limited to, information about the drawer and the paying bank that is preprinted on the original check, MICR information (routing and transit number, account number) , signature(s), any required identification written on the front of the original check, and any endorsements applied to the back of the original check. The image quality must meet the standards established by the American National Standards Institute, the Board or Governors of the Federal Reserve, and any other regulatory agency, clearing house, or association.
Endorsements must be made on the back of the share draft or check within 1 ½ inches of the top edge, although we may accept endorsements outside this space. Your endorsement must include your signature and “FOR MOBILE DEPOSIT AT WISCONSIN RIVER BANK ONLY”. Any loss we incur from a delay or processing error resulting from an irregular endorsement or other markings by you will be your responsibility.
If a check is made payable to two payees, both payees must be joint account owners. If the check is payable to you or your joint owner, either of you can endorse it. If the check is made payable to you and your joint owner, both of you must endorse the check.
Receipt of Deposit
Mobile deposits may be made into eligible account including Money Markets and Savings accounts. HSA’s, IRA’s, and Certificates of Deposit are ineligible for Mobile Check Deposit. All images processed for deposit through Mobile Check Deposit will be treated as “deposits” under your current Account Agreement with us and will be subject to all terms of the Account Agreement and fee schedules. We shall not be deemed to have received the image for deposit until the deposit memo posts to your account. Posting does not mean that the image contains no errors. We are not responsible for any image that we do not receive.
Following receipt, we may process the image by preparing a “substitute check” or clearing the item as an image. A substitute check is defined as “a paper reproduction of a check that is copied electronically”. We reserve the right, at our sole and absolute discretion, to reject any image for remote deposit into your account. We will notify you of rejected images.
If any item is not accepted by our processing department, the user will receive a notification of “failed”. It is the users’ responsibility to determine the reason for the failure.
After you receive confirmation that we have received an image, you must securely store the original check for seven (7) calendar days after transmission to us and make the original check accessible to us at our request. Upon our request, you will deliver to us within ten (10) calendar days, at your expense, the requested original check in your possession. If it is not provided in a timely manner, such amount will be reversed from your account.
Promptly after seven (7) calendar days expire, you must destroy the original check by first marking it “VOID” and then destroying it by cross-cut shredding or another commercially acceptable means of destruction. After destruction of an original check, the image will be the sole evidence of the original check. It is the users’ responsibility to keep the document secure through the process of destruction.
You agree that you will never re-present the original check. You understand that you are responsible if anyone is asked to make a payment based on an original check that has already been paid to you.
Any credit to your account for checks deposited using Mobile Check Deposit is provisional. If original checks deposited through Mobile Check Deposit are dishonored, rejected, or otherwise returned unpaid by the drawee bank or a clearing agent or collecting bank for any reason including, but not limited to, issues relating to the quality of the image; you agree that we may charge back the amount of the original check and provide you with an image of the original check, a paper reproduction of the original check or a substitute check. You will reimburse us for all loss, cost, damage, or expense caused by or relating to the processing of the returned item, including chargeback fees as defined and outlined in the bank’s schedule of fees. You shall not; without our approval, attempt to deposit or otherwise negotiate an original check if it has been charged back to you.
We may debit any of your accounts to obtain payment for any item that has been rejected or returned, for any adjustment related to such item or for any warranty claim related to such item, whether or not the rejection, return, adjustment or warranty claim was made timely.
You make the following warranties and representations with respect to each image:
- You are an authorized owner/signer on the account
- You must be enrolled in both online and mobile banking services
- You must have an iPhone or Android Smart Phone with a camera
- Each image is a true and accurate rendition of the front and back of the original check, without any alteration, and the drawer of the check has no defense against payment of the check.
- The amount, payee(s), signature(s), and endorsement(s) on the image and on the original check are legible, genuine, and accurate.
- You will not deposit or otherwise endorse to a third party the original check and no person will receive a transfer, presentment, or return of, or otherwise be charged for, the original check or a paper or electronic representation of the original check such that the person will be asked to make payment based on an item that has already been paid.
- There are no other duplicate images of the original check.
- The original check was authorized by the drawer in the amount stated on the original check and to the payee(s) stated on the original check.
- You are authorized to enforce and obtain payment of the original check
- You have possession of the original check and no party will submit the original check for payment.
- You will contact us immediately should you find/feel that your Mobile Check Deposit access was compromised in any way.
You agree that files and images transmitted to us will contain no viruses or any other disabling features that may have an adverse impact on our network, data, or related systems.
