Some or all Internet Banking services may be unavailable periodically for testing or installation of upgrades.  Transfers initiated through Internet Banking before 6:00 pm Central Time on a “Business Day” shall be posted to your account on the same day.  “Business Day” means any day except Saturdays, Sundays and Federal Reserve holidays.  Transfers initiated after 6:00 pm Central Time on a Business Day and transfers initiated on days which are not a Business Day, shall be posted to your account on the next Business Day. 


Transferring of Funds

You are responsible for ensuring that transfers are executed based on the “available balance” versus the “ledger balance”.  The number of electronic transfers from a savings account is limited to six (6) per statement cycle as described in our most recent “Understanding Your Deposit Account” and/or Savings Account brochure. 


Honoring of Transfers

Internet Banking does not require any intervention on the Bank’s part to process transfers, consequently it is your responsibility to ensure that transfers are being executed based on the “available balance” versus the “ledger balance” and that the transfers are valid.  Individuals control security password access to Internet Banking, therefore, the Bank assumes the holder of the password has authorized all transfers.  The Bank shall assume no liability for unauthorized transfers.

Not withstanding any law, rule or regulation to the contrary, you acknowledge that a Stop Payment Order on a check or series of checks initiated through the Internet Banking is binding for a six (6) month time frame from the date of placement.  By accepting this Agreement, you acknowledge you have provided written authorization for all Stop Payment Orders initiated through the Internet Banking.


Protecting your Account

Your role in preventing misuse of your account information is extremely important.  In addition to protecting your account information, you should also take precautions to protect your password.  You are responsible for keeping your password and account data confidential.  If you believe your password has become known to others, you should change it immediately.



Fees may apply to Internet Banking services.  Refer to the Electronic Banking Fee Schedule.  The Bank reserves the right to charge for use of uncollected funds if transfers are executed based on ledger balance versus the available balance.  The Bank also reserves the right to charge a fee for functionality that is added in later releases.  The Bank shall notify you in writing regarding any fee changes at least thirty (30) days in advance of the effective date of such changes.



The Bank reserves the right to terminate your Internet Banking privileges under this Agreement without notice to you for any reason, including but not limited to, your failure to comply with the applicable agreements governing your checking, savings or loan accounts or your failure to maintain your accounts in good standing.
