Security. The Online Service utilizes a comprehensive security strategy to protect your Accounts and transactions conducted over the Internet.
The Online Service uses the Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption technology. Your browser automatically activates this technology when it attempts to connect to the Online
Service. Whenever TLS is securing your communications, your browser will typically indicate this secure session by changing the appearance of a small icon of a padlock at the bottom of the screen from “open” to “locked.”
The servers hosting the Online Service have been certified by a certificate authority to ensure you are actually talking to us instead of someone pretending to be us. If you are using an older browser, you will see that the certificate authority’s key may have expired.
You will need to update your browser. By clicking on the lock, you can view the certificate to ensure it is valid.
A persistent encrypted cookie will be passed to your computer or Mobile Device in order to confirm your identity. This cookie enables us to process multiple transactions during the session without you having to provide your username and password for each individual transaction. You should ensure that your browser will accept persistent cookies. Your security is enhanced by acceptance of the cookie, which is stored on your computer’s harddrive.

Credit Union and Bill Pay Service Provider Responsibilities. The Bill Pay Service Provider is responsible only for exercising ordinary care in making payments upon your authorization and for mailing or sending a payment to the designated payee in accordance with this Agreement.
The Credit Union and the Bill Pay Service Provider are not liable for any damages you incur if you do not have sufficient funds in your designated checking account to make the payment on the processing date, or due to delays in mail delivery, changes of payee address or account number, the failure of any payee to credit the account correctly for the payment in a timely manner, or for any other circumstances beyond the control of the Credit Union or the Bill Pay Service
We will overdraft from your indicated savings account, personal line of credit account or VISA®
Credit Card Account (as applicable) according to the instructions you have given us, or we may cover an overdraft using our Premium Overdraft Service, if there are not sufficient funds in the designated checking account.
A written notice will be sent to you of transactions we are unable to process because of insufficient available funds, after each attempt (3 attempts). In all cases, you are responsible for either making alternate arrangements for the payment or rescheduling the payment through the Bill Pay Service. Insufficient available funds will prevent us from making more payments until resolved. You authorize us, and any third-party acting on our behalf, to choose the most
F. effective method to process your payments. You will receive a transaction confirmation number for each properly instructed payment.
We may charge your designated checking account on the day that a check or other transaction is presented to us directly or electronically for payment. The Credit Union reserves the right to refuse to make any payments, but we will notify you of any such refusal within two (2) to four
(4) business days following receipt of your process date.
Stop Payment. Under some circumstances, you may stop or modify some authorized payments.
The Service’s ability to process a stop payment request will depend on the payment method and whether or not a check has cleared. The Service may not be able to act on any stop payment request after a payment has been processed. Payments that have already been debited against your account cannot be stopped, canceled, or changed. Payments designated as “today” transactions cannot be stopped, canceled, or changed once your Bill Pay session is terminated.
In order to request a stop payment or change a Bill Pay transaction, you must contact us at
831.479.6000 or toll-free at 888.4BAYFED.
Fees Associated With Bill Payment. We will automatically deduct any applicable fees from your designated checking account.

If you do NOT tell us within two (2) Business
Days after you learn of the loss or theft of your username or password, and we can prove that we could have stopped someone from using your username or password without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.

(ninety (90) days if the transfer involved a new Account) to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your Account within ten (10) Business Days
(twenty (20) Business Days if the transfer involved a new Account) for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within ten (10) Business Days, we may not credit your Account. Your Account is considered new for the first thirty (30) days after the first deposit is made, unless each of you already has an established account with us before this Account is opened.
We will tell you the results within three (3) Business Days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation and will debit your
Account any amounts that were advanced. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.
Also, if your account statement, including your electronic account statement, shows transfers that you did not make, including those made by card, code or other means, tell us at once. If you
D. do not tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement was mailed to you or provided electronically, 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.
