Addendum to existing Online Banking Terms and Conditions
Please read this information carefully and retain a copy for your records
These MICU terms and conditions (“Mobile Banking Addendum” or “Addendum”) serve as an addendum to Mid-Illini Credit Union’s Online Banking Terms and Conditions (collectively, ‘the agreement’) that govern MICU’s online banking service which hereinafter includes the Mobile Banking Services by the terms of this addendum.
1. Scope and Changes to Addendum
Your use of Mobile Banking (also referred to as the “Service(s)”) is governed by this addendum which shall at times remain subject to and be part of the online banking terms and conditions, the terms of which are incorporated herein by this reference. The online banking terms and conditions can be found at www.midillinicu.com.
In order to use Mobile Banking, you must be enrolled in MICU’s online banking service. Your use of the Mobile Banking Service constitutes your acceptance of the most recent version of the Agreement as updated from time to time. You agree that Mid-Illini Credit Union (hereinafter, “bank, we, us, MICU or our”) may notify you of any changes to this Addendum through a communication or message posted in the Mobile Banking Service, or as otherwise determined by us in our sole discretion, which will also serve to amend the online banking terms and conditions.
In addition, you agree that MICU will from time to time communicate to you important information within Online Banking (www.midillinicu.com) and not in the Mobile App. For example, we may periodically alert you to, and may require your acceptance of, updates to the online banking terms and conditions during an online banking session. (Any updates to the online banking terms and conditions will serve to amend this Mobile Banking addendum).
Therefore, you agree to periodically login to online banking, no less often than once every 30 days whether you actively use online banking or not, in order to receive any such notices or updates. Should you fail to do so, and without any further reaction on your part or our part, you hereby agree to be bound to any such communications that MICU provides within online banking (including notice of updates to the online banking terms and conditions) during those periods of time which you fail to login to Online Banking.
2. Relationship to Apple and Google
This Addendum is between you and us and not between you and Apple or Google. MICU is responsible for the mobile app and the service as set forth in this Addendum. You acknowledge and agree that, to the extent you use an Apple device, Apple, and Apple’s subsidiaries are third party beneficiaries of this Addendum, and that, upon your acceptance of this Addendum, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce this Addendum against you as a a third party beneficiary thereof.
