1. The Service.
In consideration of the Online Banking services ("Services") to be provided by FIRST BANK ("BANK"), as described from time to time in information distributed by BANK to its customers. In the agreement, "Customer" refers to the person(s) subscribing to or using the Service, the Customer agrees as follows. You may use a Personal Computer ("PC") through an Internet connection to obtain account balances and transaction information. You may also use your PC to obtain statements on your accounts and to transfer money between your accounts. However, transfers from your savings and Money Market accounts are considered pre-authorized transfers, and pre-authorized transfers are limited to 6 per monthly statement cycle by federal regulations.
PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY AND KEEP A COPY FOR YOUR RECORDS.
2. Your User Code and PIN.
Each individual who has access to First Bank's Online Banking, including each individual named on joint accounts, must designate a Personal Identification Number ("PIN") and a user code. Your PIN must be a minimum of 8 characters, up to a maximum of 17 characters, which must consist of at least 2 numeric characters, plus alpha characters. For example, your PIN maybe: 12signup. You will be required to change your PIN periodically to enhance security.
3. Delivery of Your Transfers.
You may schedule transfers 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. Transfers must be scheduled by the normal cut-off time of 6 p.m. (CST) on any business day in order for the transaction to be completed on that business day.
4. Recurring Transfers.
Recurring transfers are those made for the same amount and are made on a weekly, bi-monthly, monthly basis, etc. Once started, recurring transfers will be made automatically until you tell us to stop or cancel the service and we have a reasonable opportunity to react.
5. 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:
a. if, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account
to make the transfer;
b. if the money in your account is subject to legal process or other encumbrances restricting transfer;
c. if the transfer would go over the credit limit on your overdraft line (if any);
d. if the automated teller machine or the merchant where you are making the transfer does not have enough cash;
e. if the system was not working properly when you started the transfer;
f. if circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood or systems failure) prevent the transfer, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken.
All transfers and/or fees made with the First Bank's Online Banking Service will appear on your monthly Account statement. The transfer amount and date of the transfer will be shown for each payment made through the Service during that month.
Fees for FIRST BANK'S Services shall be payable in accordance with a schedule of charges as established and amended by FIRST BANK from time to time. Charges shall be automatically deducted from Customer’s account, and FIRST BANK shall provide to Customer monthly notice of such debit(s) on your statement.
You are solely responsible for the equipment (including, in the case of Online Banking, your personal computer and software) you use to access the Services. We are not responsible for errors or delays or your inability to access the Services caused by your equipment. We are not responsible for the cost of upgrading your equipment to stay current with the Services nor are we responsible, under any circumstances, for any damage to your equipment or the data resident thereon.

Our business hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (CST), Monday through Friday, and 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Saturdays.
Except bank holidays although transfers can be completed only on business days, the Service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, except during maintenance periods, for the scheduling of transfers.
10. Notice of Your Rights and Liabilities.
Security of your transactions is important to us. Use of the Services may therefore require a PIN or password. If you lose or forget your PIN or password, please call (515) 225-2641 during normal business hours listed above or after hours leave a voice mail message.
We may accept as authentic
any instructions given to us through the use of your password or PIN. You agree
to keep your PIN and password secret and to notify us immediately if your PIN
or password is lost or stolen or if you believe someone else has discovered
your PIN or password. You agree that if you give your PIN or password to
someone else, you are authorizing them to act on your behalf, and we may accept
any instructions they give us to make transfers or otherwise use the Services.
Online Banking Services enables you to change your password; we require that
you do so regularly. We may be liable for certain security breaches to the
extent required by applicable law and regulation. We do not assume any other
liability or otherwise guarantee the security of information in transit to or
from our facilities. Please note that we reserve the right to (1) monitor and/or
record all communications and activity related to the Services; and (2) require
verification of all requested transfers in the manner we deem appropriate
before making the transfer (which may include written verification by you). You
agree that our
records will be final and conclusive as to all questions concerning whether or not your PIN or password was used in connection with a particular transaction. If any unauthorized use of your PIN or password occurs you agree to (1) cooperate with us and appropriate law enforcement authorities in identifying and prosecuting the perpetrator; and (2) provide reasonable assistance requested by us in recovering any unauthorized transfer of funds.
Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your PIN or password has been lost or stolen. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum line of credit). If you tell us within 2 business days, you can lose no more than $50. If you do NOT tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft of you PIN or password, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your PIN or password without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500. Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within 60 days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 60 days if we can prove that we could have prevented someone from taking the money if you had told us in time. If you believe your PIN or password has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, call (515) 225-2641 during normal business hours listed above. WE CANNOT ACCEPT NOTIFICATION OF LOST OR STOLEN PINS OR PASSWORDS OR UNAUTHORIZED TRANSFERS VIA E-MAIL.

We also reserve the right to temporarily suspend the Services in situations deemed appropriate by us, in our sole and absolute discretion, including when we believe a breach of system security has occurred or is being attempted.
