We may respond to an e-mail address you provide us in your Credit Card Online or Online Banking application, or any other application or written communication actually received by us. Although we have no obligation to do so, we reserve the right to require authentication of e-mails or electronic communications. The decision to require authentication is the sole discretion of VSECU. We will have no obligation, liability or responsibility to you or any other person or company if we do not act upon, or follow any instruction to us if a communication cannot be authenticated to our satisfaction.

 

Liability: You are liable for all transactions you make, or that you authorize another person to make, even if that person exceeds his or her authority. You will be responsible for any credit card payment request you make that contains and error, or is a duplicate of another credit card payment. We are not responsible for a credit card payment that is not made if you did not properly follow the instructions for making a credit card payment.

We are not responsible for your acts or omissions, or those of any other person, including, without limitation, any transmission or communications facility, and no such party shall be deemed to be our agent. We will not be liable for any special, consequential, incidental or punitive losses, damages, or expenses in connection with this Agreement or the Credit Card Online service, even if we have knowledge of the possibility of them.
