- Customer’s Liability for Unauthorized Transfers
This paragraph may pertain to any personal account(s) you may have. It does not include your business account(s).

If you believe that an electronic funds transfer has been made without your permission using information from your check, notify the Bank as quickly as possible
Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, including those made by card, and or other means, notify us at once. If you do not notify us within 60-days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not receive any money you lost after the 60-days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time period.

- Limitation of Liability
Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement or by law, we are not responsible for any loss, injury, or damage, whether direct, indirect, special or consequential, caused by the Bank’s Online Banking or the use thereof or arising in any way out of the installation, operation, or maintenance of your PC equipment.

We do not need to provide you with any prior notice where an immediate change in the terms or conditions of this Agreement is necessary to maintain or restore the security of our system or an account. However, even in these cases, if the change is to be made permanent, we will provide you with a notice of the change with the next regularly scheduled periodic statement we send you, or within 30-days, unless disclosure would jeopardize the security of our system or an account. Notices mailed or delivered to you under this paragraph will be considered effective if mailed to the most recent address we show for you in either our checking or savings account records, or email address in which you authorized to receive such notices and/or disclosures.
- Security Procedures
By accessing Online Banking, you hereby acknowledge that you will be entering a protected web site owned by the Bank, which may be used for authorized purposes. The Bank may monitor and audit usage of the System, and all persons are hereby notified that use of Online Banking constitutes consent to such monitoring and auditing. Unauthorized attempts to up-load information and/or change information on these web sites are strictly prohibited and are subject to prosecution under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986.
Online Bill Payment
- Scheduling Payments
You may choose to add Access Anytime Online Bill Pay (Bill Pay) and use your PC to electronically schedule payments. Payments are posted against your balance available for withdrawal, as defined in the Bank’s Funds Availability Policy, plus the available credit on your overdraft protection, if any, or other line of credit. Payments may be made only to payees with a U.S. payment address. You may not make a payment of alimony, child support, taxes, or any other governmental fees or court-directed payments through Bill Pay.
- Delivery of Your Payments and Transfers
You may schedule payments to be initiated on the current business day, on a future date, or on the same date of each month, subject to the restrictions in the Agreement. Although you can enter payment information through Bill Pay 24-hours a day, seven days a week, payments can be initiated on business days only. Funds will be deducted from your account on the business day on which a payment is to be “initiated”. This date is referred to in this Agreement as the “Transaction Date”. If you direct the initiation of a payment to occur on a day other than a business day, it will be initiated on the following business day.
After funds are withdrawn from your account, we may remit your payments by electronic funds transfer, including ACH (Automated Clearing House) or we may remit your payments by mailing your payee a check. Because of the time it takes to send your payment to them, your payee generally will not receive payment on the transaction date. This applies regardless of whether the payment is a next-day payment, a future payment, or a recurring payment, as described below. Therefore, in order to provide sufficient time for payments to be received by your payees, the transaction date should be five to seven days prior to the date your payment is due, excluding any applicable grace periods. It is helpful if you allow additional time for a payment to be completed the first time you send a payment to a payee through Bill Pay. This allows the payee to adjust to the new form of payment. Payments and transfers must be scheduled by the normal cut- off time of 9:00 p.m. (CST) on any business day for the transaction to be initiated for that business day.
- Recurring Payments
Recurring payments are those made for the same amount and are made on a weekly, bi-monthly, monthly basis, etc. Once started, recurring payments will be made automatically until you stop or cancel the service.
- Our Liability for Failure to Complete Transactions
If we do not complete a transfer to or from your account on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we might be liable for some of your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable for instance:
- If through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer.
- If the money in your account is subject to legal process or other encumbrances restricting transfer.
- If the transfer would go over the credit limit on your overdraft limit (if any).
- If the automated teller machine or the merchant where you are making the transfer does not have enough cash.
- If the system was not working properly when you started the transfer.
- If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood or systems failure) prevent the transfer, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken.
- If the payee mishandles or delays handling payments sent by us.
- Canceling Payments
You may use your PC to cancel a payment up to 9:00 p.m. (CST) on the business day your payment is scheduled to be initiated (“Transaction Date”). There is no fee for canceling a payment online.
- Rights of Stop Payment
You may stop payment on any Electronic Fund Transfer debit made through the ACH by notifying the Bank either orally or in writing at least three business days before the transfer is to be made. An oral stop payment is good for 14-days at which time it will expire unless written authorization is received. A written authorization is in effect until the earliest of: withdrawal of the stop payment by you or the return of a debit entry; or, where applies to more than one debit entry, the return of all entries. You agree to hold the Bank harmless for all expenses and costs incurred by the Bank on account of refusing payment of such debit and agree not to hold the Bank liable on account of payment contrary to this request if same occurs through inadvertence, accident, or oversight.
