Mobile Location Confirmation Service
The Service: The Mobile Location Confirmation service (“MLC”) helps to reduce the likelihood that Greater Nevada Credit Union will mistakenly decline a transaction when you are transacting outside your normal purchasing areas. MLC uses location updates sent by your mobile device to help Greater Nevada Credit Union know the difference between fraud and legitimate transactions. Once you enroll, your device will send location updates anytime you are connected to a cell or Wi-Fi network and location services are turned on for your device.
Enrollment and Un-Enrollment: You may choose to enroll or un-enroll one or more cards at any time by using Greater Nevada Credit Union’s mobile app. If you un-enroll a card but keep another card enrolled, then location updates will continue to be sent from your device, but Greater Nevada Credit Union will only use your device’s location data in connection with the card(s) remaining enrolled. If no cards are enrolled, your device will not send any location updates in conjunction with MLC. If you choose to un-enroll from MLC, it will not turn off any other location based service offered through this Greater Nevada Credit Union app. [To Issuer: Include the following sentence only if it applies:] If the account number of your MLC-enrolled card is lost, stolen, or expires and you receive a replacement card with a different account number, Greater Nevada Credit Union will automatically enroll the replacement card in MLC.
Location Updates: When you enroll in MLC, you agree to allow your mobile device to automatically send location updates. Each location update contains a unique device identifier generated by your card issuer, a timestamp, the event that triggered the location update such as a cell tower change or connection to a Wi-Fi network, and a latitude and longitude which represents the approximate location of your mobile device. This approximate location may be derived from the location of the cell phone tower to which your device is connected, the locations of Wi-Fi networks in the area of your device, or the location of your device. On occasion, if you have GPS turned on, your device’s GPS coordinates may be sent. Location updates sent from your device will not distinguish whether the location sent was of a cell tower, Wi-Fi connection point, or an individual device. The location updates are sent to Greater Nevada Credit Union and to one or more vendors who help to provide MLC and are contractually obligated to follow Greater Nevada Credit Union’s policies.
Frequency: Your device may send a location update each time your mobile device either switches from one cell tower to another or connects to a Wi-Fi network. To reduce the number of location updates sent from the device, the application automatically filters out certain updates. Which updates are filtered depends on the movement of the device, the amount of time since the last location update, and whether or not a “Home Area” has been established for the device.
Home Area: After you enroll, it takes two weeks to establish the Home Area of your device. This Home Area is a circular region with a 50 mile radius centered around where your mobile device is most commonly located. As long as your device remains within the Home Area, location updates will generally be sent no more than once every 24 hours. If your Home Area is not yet defined, if your Home Area is being re-validated, or if your device is outside of the Home Area, location updates will be sent more frequently, particularly when the device is in transit. Your Home Area will be re-validated once every 6 months or if you do not return to your previously defined Home Area after more than 30 days. If you un-enroll in MLC through your mobile app, your Home Area will be purged. If you later re-enroll, it will be necessary to re-establish a Home Area. If your mobile device is most typically located less than 50 miles from a national border, your Home Area will have a radius of less than 50 miles, with the radius equaling the distance to the national border.
Limited Use of Data: Greater Nevada Credit Union and its vendors will use location update data for fraud screening and to improve fraud screening services. We will not share personally identifiable location update data with any third party without your consent, except to comply with court orders, valid legal process such as a warrant or subpoena, and other legal requirements. This mobile app may use data you have provided through the app apart from MLC in other ways described by these Terms and Conditions.
Data Retention: Greater Nevada Credit Union and its vendors will store location update data for a maximum of 18  months, except as required to comply with court orders, valid legal process such as a warrant or subpoena, or other legal requirements.
Data Storage: We, and the service providers we may engage, may store and process personal information in different countries from where you reside, including in the United States. Please note that these countries may have different laws and requirements about privacy and data use than where you live.
Charges and Fees: You are solely responsible for acquiring any hardware, devices, software, wireless and Internet access, and/or other items required in connection with your enrollment in MLC, and any associated fees, expenses, taxes, or other charges, including but not limited to any mobile data and roaming fees.
Proprietary Rights: All ownership rights in MLC are retained by Greater Nevada Credit Union and its vendors and protected under applicable intellectual property laws and international treaties. All rights not expressly granted to you through these Terms are retained by Greater Nevada Credit Union and its vendors. Nothing in these Terms grants to you any right to use any trademarks, service marks, logos or other indicia of origin of Greater Nevada Credit Union or its vendors.
Changes to MLC: Greater Nevada Credit Union may, in its discretion, terminate, change, modify, suspend, make improvements to, or discontinue any or all aspects of MLC, temporarily or permanently, including the availability of any service, at any time with or without notice to you. You agree that Greater Nevada Credit Union and its vendors shall not be liable to you or to any third party as a result of taking any of these actions.
Disclaimer of Warranties/Limitation of Liability: MLC, IN WHOLE AND IN PART, INCLUDING ALL SERVICES, IS PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS, WITHOUT EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF TITLE OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU ASSUME SOLE RESPONSIBILITY AND RISK FOR YOUR USE OF MLC, AND THE RESULTS AND PERFORMANCE THEREOF.
IN NO EVENT AND UNDER NO CAUSE OF ACTION, INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, SHALL Greater Nevada Credit Union OR ITS VENDORS OR THEIR RESPECTIVE AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, CUSTOMERS, MEMBERS, EMPLOYEES OR AUTHORIZED AGENTS (COLLECTIVELY, THE "PROVIDERS") BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, CLAIMS OR LOSSES INCURRED (INCLUDING DIRECT, COMPENSATORY, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES), HOWEVER CAUSED AND UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, ARISING FROM OR IN CONNECTION WITH MLC AND/OR THESE TERMS, EVEN IF A PROVIDER IS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, CLAIMS OR LOSSES.
WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, THE PROVIDERS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR: (I) YOUR USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE MLC FOR ANY REASON; (II) ANY INACCURACY, INCOMPLETENESS OR MISINFORMATION CONTAINED IN ANY INFORMATION PROVIDED THROUGH MLC; (III) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO, OR ALTERATION OR LOSS OF, YOUR TRANSMISSIONS, DATA OR OTHER INFORMATION THAT IS COLLECTED, STORED OR SENT IN CONNECTION WITH MLC; (IV) ERRORS, SYSTEM DOWN TIME, NETWORK OR SYSTEM OUTAGES, FILE CORRUPTION OR SERVICE INTERRUPTIONS; OR (V) ANY OTHER USE BY YOU OF MLC. IN ADDITION, THE PROVIDERS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE IF MLC CANNOT (OR ANY PART THEREOF) CANNOT BE PROVIDED OR FOR ANY FAILURE TO PERFORM ANY OBLIGATIONS CONTAINED IN THESE TERMS DUE TO, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, THE FAILURE OF ANY EQUIPMENT, TRANSMISSION OR DELIVERY PROBLEMS, OR ANY INDUSTRIAL DISPUTE, WAR, NATURAL DISASTER, ACT OF TERRORISM, EXPLOSION, ACT OF GOD OR ANY OTHER EVENT BEYOND OUR CONTROL.
NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY CONTAINED HEREIN, THE PROVIDERS’ CUMULATIVE LIABILITY TO YOU ARISING FROM ANY CAUSE OF ACTION WILL AT ALL TIMES BE LIMITED TO THE LESSER OF (A) YOUR ACTUAL LOSS; OR (B) $100.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE DISCLAIMER, EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES, LIABILITIES AND DAMAGES, SO SOME OF THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS, THE PROVIDERS’ LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

Customer Transaction Controls is offered as an opt-in service.  Circumstances exist whereby card controls may not work or may be ineffective at prohibiting the sale of products or services.  For example, blocking Alcohol and Tobacco Merchant Category Codes (MCC) will not prohibit sale of alcohol and tobacco at a Convenience Store MCC.  The time required to apply or modify card controls may not occur in real-time if technical issues arise.
The scenarios that Visa and the issuer may not see authorization requests for, and therefore cannot apply card controls, include:
  • Transactions below a merchant’s floor-limit
  • EMV offline approved transactions if supported by the issuer’s card product.
  • Non-Visa networks that perform Stand-in-Processing on behalf of the issuer processor
