INTERNAL TRANSFERS

  1. Types of Internal Transfers

    Internal Transfers (transfers between your eligible Accounts with us) may be processed as follows:

    One-Time Transfers.

    1. One-time transfers and payments are used for transfers and payments between eligible Accounts which occur on an infrequent or irregular basis, or which vary in amount. You must have sufficient Available Funds (either in the Account or via an overdraft line of credit) on the day and at the time you request a same-day one-time transfer. Same-day one-time transfers may not be cancelled for any reason once the transaction has been approved by us.
    2. You may also request that a transfer be made on a future date that you may designate which is in advance of the Scheduled Initiation Date. The “Scheduled Initiation Date” will be the effective date you enter, or the next Business Day should the effective date fall on a weekend or holiday. If you request a transfer for a future date, we process the transaction at the opening of business on that day only if it is a Business Day; otherwise, the transaction will be processed on the following Business Day. If we receive your instruction after the end of a Business Day, we will process the transaction on our next Business Day.
    3. If you designate an Internal Transfer for a future date, you must have sufficient Available Funds by midnight of the night before the Scheduled Initiation Date; however, funds will be deducted from your designated Account on the Scheduled Initiation Date. Scheduled future Internal Transfers may be cancelled up to the established funds transfer cut-off time displayed in Online Banking in advance of the Scheduled Initiation Date.

    Recurring Transfers. If you designate an Internal Transfer as a recurring transfer, you may request, and we will use, a Scheduled Initiation Date that re-occurs on a specified regular basis (e.g., weekly, semi-monthly, monthly, etc.). You will designate a “start date” and may also designate an “end” date. You must have sufficient Available Funds by midnight of the night before the Scheduled Initiation Date; however, funds will be deducted from your designated Account on the Scheduled Initiation Date. Recurring transfers may be cancelled up to the established funds transfer cut-off time displayed in Online Banking in advance of the Scheduled Initiation Date.

    Limits on Internal Transfers. In addition to the Available Funds requirements and other limits generally described above and in this Agreement, please see the applicable Account Rules and Agreements for a more detailed description of limits on Internal Transfers.

  2. Internal Transfers Set-Up

    Account Designation. You will designate Accounts between which you may transfer funds electronically through Online Banking. All of these Accounts must be in your name (as owner or co-owner) and be eligible for Internal Transfers. Eligible Accounts for Internal Transfers include checking, money market, savings and loan Accounts.

    Funds Availability. Although you receive immediate provisional credit upon completion of an Online Banking session for same-day one-time transfers made during the session, you must make Internal Transfers by the established funds transfer cut-off time displayed in Online Banking for those funds to be posted on an Account on the same Business Day and to be available for non-Online Banking Service transactions. Internal Transfers designated as same-day one-time transfers made after the established funds transfer cut-off time displayed in Online Banking on a Business Day or on a weekend or holiday will be available for the payment of non-Online Banking Service transactions on the following Business Day.

  3. Cancelling or Modifying Internal Transfers

    In order to cancel or change a scheduled transaction that is a future-dated or a recurring Internal Transfer, you may use Online Banking or the Mobile Banking Service and follow the instructions provided to you, all in accordance with the Service’s deadlines for cancellation or modification as described therein.

  4. Internal Transfers and Available Funds

    You agree to have Available Funds on deposit in the Account you have designated in amounts sufficient to pay for all Internal Transfers requested, as well as any other payment obligations you have to us. If Internal Transfers process against any uncollected deposit, uncollected balance or otherwise insufficient Available Funds in your Account, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE ASSESSED AND CHARGED THE APPROPRIATE OVERDRAFT, UNCOLLECTED OR RETURNED ITEM INSUFFICIENT CHARGE. See our current Fee Schedule for the current amounts of these charges. We reserve the right, without liability, to reject or reverse an Internal Transfer, as applicable, if you fail to comply with this requirement or any other terms of this Agreement.

    If you do not have sufficient Available Funds in your designated Account and we have not exercised our right to reverse or reject an Internal Transfer, as applicable, you agree to pay for such payment obligations on demand. You further agree that we may, at our option, charge any of your Accounts with us to cover such payment obligations.

  5. Person-to-Person Transfers

    Person-to-Person (“P2P”) Transfers is a service that allows Consumer customers to send funds from your Deposit Account with us to the deposit account of another Sturdy Savings Bank customer (the “P2P Transfer Recipient”). P2P Transfer Recipients must be a Consumer and must also be enrolled in the Service to be eligible to receive a P2P Transfer. P2P Transfers may only be made to a deposit account held in the name of the P2P Transfer Recipient for personal, family or household purposes.

    When a P2P Transfer is made, the funds are immediately withdrawn and transferred from your Deposit Account and deposited to a deposit account titled in the name of the P2P Transfer Recipient. You agree that when you initiate a request to make a P2P Transfer, you are authorizing us to make the P2P Transfer to the P2P Transfer Recipient and in the amount that you specify in your request. Once you have provided your authorization for the P2P Transfer, you may not be able to cancel it. If you are able to cancel the P2P Transfer, you understand that any credit back to your Deposit Account will not be immediate and may take up to ten (10) Business Days.

    When you initiate a P2P Transfer, the P2P Transfer Recipient is not required to accept it. You agree that you will not hold us liable for any damages resulting from a P2P Transfer Recipient's decision not to accept a payment made through the P2P Transfers service. We will return any unclaimed, refunded or denied payment to your Deposit Account within thirty (30) calendar days of the date you initiate the P2P Transfer.

    You may initiate a P2P Transfer in an amount up to the available balance in your Deposit Account.

EXTERNAL TRANSFERS

  1. Registration and Access

    You must be enrolled in Online Banking in order to transfer funds between your Accounts with us and accounts at other financial institutions (“External Transfers”). External Transfers are outbound and inbound transfers that move funds to or from one of your eligible Accounts with us to or from a registered account at another financial institution. You will need to register each non-Bank account that you wish to use for External Transfers.

    You agree that (i) you will only register eligible non-Bank accounts (i.e., accounts at financial institutions other than Sturdy Savings Bank) on which you are an individual or joint owner, or for which you otherwise have the authority to transfer funds, and (ii) you will only use External Transfers for transferring funds between your consumer Accounts with us and registered consumer accounts at other financial institutions.

  2. Scheduling External Transfers

    External Transfers can be scheduled (or initiated) on either a one-time basis or a recurring basis. One-time transfers may be scheduled to be sent immediately or scheduled to be sent on a future date. The recurring transfer feature may be used when a set amount is transferred at regular intervals. One-time future-dated or future recurring transfers scheduled for a weekend or a non-Business Day will be processed on the next Business Day. All other one-time future-dated and recurring transfers will be processed at the end of the Business Day requested. The cut-off time and delivery date of External Transfers is set forth in Online Banking and/or in this Agreement.

  3. When Transfers are Debited to Your Account(s)

    Transfers Initiated Before Cut-Off Time: Funds involving an External Transfer from your Account with us will be debited the same Business Day that you initiate the transfer.

    Transfers Initiated After Cut-Off Time: Funds involving an External Transfer from your Account with us will be debited the Business Day after you initiate the transfer.

  4. Cancelling Scheduled Transfers

    Future-dated External Transfers (either one-time or recurring) can be cancelled prior to the cut-off time set forth in Online Banking on the Business Day prior to the date the transfer is scheduled to be made. However, if the transfer's status is approved, you can no longer cancel it. NOTE: Immediate transfers cannot be cancelled via the Service once the transfer has been processed.

  5. Transfer Fees

    You may be charged an External Transfer fee in accordance with our Fee Schedule.

  6. Limitations on Transfers

    In addition to the limits described in the applicable Account Rules and Agreements, External Transfers are subject to a total dollar limit of $ 5,000 for all Accounts each Business Day, or as otherwise established by us from time to time. We may change the dollar limits at any time, without prior notice (other than any notice required by Applicable Law).

    Any transfer initiated on a day that is not a Business Day will count toward the applicable limit for the next Business Day. A transfer remains "Authorized" until fully processed. Transfers initiated after the cut-off time typically remain In Process until the close of the 2nd Business Day after the transfer is initiated, and, for External Transfers initiated before the cut-off time, until the close of the next Business Day after the transfer is initiated.

  7. Disqualifying Events

    You agree that we may reduce the dollar limits on transfers as described in subsection (F) above, or terminate your eligibility to make future transfers (including cancelling scheduled future transfers), in each case without prior notice (other than any notice required by Applicable Law), upon occurrence of a Disqualifying Event. Each of the following is a "Disqualifying Event":

    1. Any of your Accounts with us are not current or are not in good standing.
    2. You have had an overdraft, an over-limit item, or an item returned for insufficient funds with respect to any Account with us during the current or three (3) prior calendar months.
    3. You have had any prior External Transfer involving accounts at other financial institutions cancelled, revoked, or not completed due to insufficient funds, revoked authorization, stopped payments, frozen accounts, or any similar reason.
    4. You attempt to use External Transfers to transfer funds between your eligible Consumer Accounts with certain non-Consumer accounts at other financial institutions, or to transfer funds between your eligible Business accounts with certain non-Business accounts at other financial institutions.
    5. We suspect fraud or unauthorized use has or may occur with respect to your Account(s) with us or with respect to any External Transfer(s).
  8. External Transfers and Available Funds

    You agree to have Available Funds on deposit in the Account you have designated in amounts sufficient to pay for all External Transfers requested, as well as any other payment obligations you have to us. If External Transfers process against any uncollected deposit, uncollected balance or otherwise insufficient Available Funds in your Account, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE ASSESSED AND CHARGED THE APPROPRIATE OVERDRAFT, UNCOLLECTED OR RETURNED ITEM INSUFFICIENT CHARGES. See our current Fee Schedule for the current amounts of these charges.

BILL PAYMENT SERVICE

You may use our Bill Payment Service to direct us and/or our Service Provider to make payments from the Funding Account to the Payees that you choose in accordance with this Agreement.

  1. Service Guarantee

    The Service Provider will bear responsibility for any late-payment-related charges up to $50 should a Payment post after the Scheduled Payment Due Date or Deliver By Date, provided that the Payment was scheduled and the Payee information was maintained in accordance with the terms and conditions described within this section. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Service Provider shall not be responsible for any such charges if the Service Provider does not have responsibility or liability for a Payment transaction, late payments or late payment related charges under the other provisions of this section, including those payments described under the Exception Payments sub-section below.

  2. Transaction Responsibilities

    The Service Provider shall use commercially reasonable efforts to process the Scheduled Payments in accordance with your instructions. Except where Applicable Law requires or provides otherwise, neither we nor the Service Provider shall be liable for any Payment transaction if: (i) you do not have enough money in the Funding Account to complete the transaction; (ii) a legal order prohibits withdrawals from your Account; (iii) the Funding Account is closed, has been frozen, or is otherwise not authorized to debit the corresponding Payment Amount; (iv) the transaction would cause your Account balance to go over the credit limit for any credit arrangement set up to cover overdrafts; (v) you, or anyone you allow, commit fraud or violate any law or regulation in connection with the Bill Payment Service; (vi) any electronic terminal, telecommunication device or part of the electronic fund transfer system is not working properly; (vii) you did not provide complete and correct Funding Account, Payment or Payee information; (viii) you did not properly follow the instructions or terms and conditions for use of the Bill Payment Service; (ix) you knew and/or had been advised that the Bill Payment Service was not operating properly at the time you scheduled the Payment; (x) there is a postal delay; or (xi) circumstances beyond the Service Provider’s control (such as fire, flood or improper transmission or handling by a third party) that prevent, hinder or delay the transaction.

    With the exception of the foregoing, if the Bill Payment Service incorrectly debits your Funding Account and/or directs funds from the Funding Account to a Payee inconsistent with the instructions you specified in the Scheduled Payment, the Bill Payment Service shall, upon detecting the error or receiving notice from you, be responsible for returning the improperly transferred funds to your Funding Account and/or redirecting funds to the proper Payee and/or contacting the Payee to request appropriate adjustments on your account with the Payee, except as otherwise provided under the Authorization sub-section below.

  3. Your Responsibilities

    You will be responsible for any Payment request you make that contains an error or is a duplicate of another Payment. Neither we nor the Service Provider is responsible for a Payment that is not made if you did not properly follow the instructions for making a Payment. Neither we nor the Service Provider are liable for any failure to make a Payment if you fail to promptly notify us after you learn that you have not received credit from a Payee for a Payment. Neither we nor the Service Provider are responsible for your acts or omissions or those of any other person, including any Payee or transmission or communications facility, and no such party shall be deemed to be our and/or the Service Provider’s agent. In no event will we and/or the Service Provider be liable for any special, consequential, incidental, or punitive losses, damages, or expenses in connection with the Bill Payment Service, even if we and/or the Service Provider have knowledge of the possibility of them. Neither we nor the Service Provider are liable for any act, failure to act or delay in acting with respect to the Bill Payment Service if it is caused, in whole or in part, by any cause beyond our and/or the Service Provider’s reasonable control.

  4. Setting Up and Maintaining Payees

    To begin using the Bill Payment Service, you will first need to establish at least one Payee in your Payee List. You may add, modify or delete Payees as necessary. It is your responsibility to manage your Payee List and maintain accurate Payee information, such as but not limited to the address to which the Payee specifies Payments are to be delivered, your account number with the Payee, the name on your account with the Payee, etc., except where the Bill Payment Service expressly indicates that it shall manage such Payee information, such as a Merchant’s remittance address. Payees must reside or exist within the United States of America or its territories or commonwealths. The Service Provider and/or we reserve the right to refuse or remove a Payee for any reason.

  5. Setting Up Payments

    To schedule Payments, you must choose a Payee from your Payee List. You may schedule One-Time Payments and Recurring Payments to any of your Payees. It is your responsibility to cancel, skip, reschedule or revise a Scheduled Payment in accordance with the Payee’s instructions to you, or as needed to ensure sufficient Available Funds in the corresponding Funding Account, or under circumstances where the Payee may return the Payment to the Service Provider due to any reason outside the Service Provider’s or our control. The Service Provider and/or we reserve the right to refuse or cancel a Payment for any reason.

    The earliest possible Payment Date / Withdraw On Date and Due Date / Deliver By Date for each Payee will be determined and presented by the Bill Payment Service when you schedule a Payment. The Bill Payment Service will not permit a Payment Date / Withdraw On Date or Due Date / Deliver By Date earlier than the earliest possible dates presented. The Bill Payment Service determines this earliest possible Payment Date / Withdraw On Date and Due Date / Deliver By Date based on the number of Business Days required to deliver a Payment to the Payee, which is primarily affected by whether or not the Payee has agreed to accept remittance of Payments electronically (typically two (2) Business Days or requires Payments be delivered by check (typically five (5) Business Days. A Payee’s location or policies for posting and crediting payments may require additional Business Days. Payments scheduled after the Bill Payment Service’s “Cut-Off Time,” as set forth in the Bill Payment Service site and/or in this Agreement, shall be processed no earlier than the following Business Day. The Service Provider and/or we may change the Cut-Off Time without prior notice.

    You should carefully consider factors such as the Payee’s payment due date, grace period, whether the Payee’s payment due date falls on a non-Business Day, etc, when scheduling a Payment to avoid late payments and late fees. You must allow the necessary number of Business Days prior to the Payee’s payment due date for each Payment, including each Payment of a Recurring Payment series. Some Businesses take longer to post payments than others. You should consider allowing additional time for the initial Payment to a Payee through the Bill Payment Service in order to gauge the appropriate Payment Date / Withdraw On Date or Due Date / Deliver By Date in each case, and determine whether to allow an additional one (1) or two (2) additional Business Days to avoid incurring any late fee charged by the Merchant. It is your responsibility to schedule Payments appropriately and in accordance with the Payee’s requirements. Neither the Service Provider nor we shall be responsible for late payments, nor to reimburse you for late fees, for any Payment delivered in accordance with your instructions, or as a result of a Payee’s payment processing policies, or any other circumstance outside the Service Provider’s control.

    Payments to Payees, Businesses or individuals outside the United States of America or its territories or commonwealths using the Bill Payment Service are prohibited.

  6. Limitations on Payments by Consumers Only

    In addition to the limits described in the applicable Account Rules and Agreements, Payments by Consumers that are associated with the Bill Payment Service are subject to a per transaction or per Payment dollar limit of $ 10,000, and a total dollar limit of $ 20,000 for all Payments each Business Day, or as otherwise established by us from time to time. We may change the dollar limits at any time, without prior notice (other than any notice required by Applicable Law).

  7. Editing or Cancelling Payments

    Any Payment can be modified or cancelled, provided you access the Bill Payment Service prior to the Cut-Off Time on the Business Day that a Payment is going to be processed. Once a Payment is in-process, it cannot be cancelled through the Bill Payment Service. Instead, you must contact Customer Service to request a stop payment. A Recurring Payment may be edited or cancelled after processing, however, it will take effect on all future Recurring Payments.

  8. Stop Payment

    You may request to stop a Payment after a Payment has been processed by contacting us as set forth in the YOUR COMMUNICATIONS WITH Sturdy Savings Bank section of this Part III of the Agreement. The Bill Payment Service’s ability to stop a Payment successfully depends on how the funds were remitted to the Payee and the elapsed time since the Payment was processed. The Service Provider and we will make commercially reasonable efforts to stop a Payment per your request but shall have no liability if unsuccessful. You may be charged a stop payment fee for each request.

  9. Exception Payments

    Tax Payments and court-ordered Payments through the Bill Payment Service are discouraged and must be scheduled at your own risk. In no event shall we or the Service Provider be liable for any claims or damages resulting from your scheduling these types of Payments. The Service Provider shall have no obligation to research or resolve any claim resulting from any such Payment. All research and resolution for any misapplied, mis-posted or misdirected Payments will be your sole responsibility.

  10. Bill Payment Process

    The Bill Payment Service will process Payments in accordance with the Payment instructions you provide. The Bill Payment Service will only process Payments on Business Days. The Bill Payment Service will debit your Funding Account or issue a draft against the Funding Account, and deliver those funds to the designated Payee on your behalf such that the funds arrive as close to the scheduled Due Date / Deliver By Date as is reasonably practicable.

    Numerous business and technical requirements determine if a Payee can accept Payments electronically, but in all cases, Payments can be remitted by check. The Service Provider shall have sole discretion to determine the appropriate remittance method. In order to process Payments efficiently and effectively, or otherwise comply with a Payee’s remittance requirements, the Bill Payment Service reserves the right to change or update Payee data, or alter the method of Payment remittance. Neither the Service Provider nor we shall be responsible for late Payments, nor to reimburse you for late fees, due to: (i) U.S. postal delivery issues; (ii) electronic remittance network issues; (iii) your Payee’s payment processing procedures; (iv) instances where the financial risk associated with the Payment requires check remittance instead of electronic remittance or additional Business Days to ensure sufficient funds in the Funding Account are available; or (v) other circumstances beyond Service Provider’s or our control.

  11. Authorization

    When you schedule a Payment, you expressly authorize the Service Provider and/or us to withdraw from your Funding Account the Payment Amount and to remit those funds to the designated Payee on your behalf, and additionally to debit your Funding Account for any applicable Bill Payment Service related fees. You further authorize us to credit your Funding Account for any Payment returned from or undeliverable to the Payee. In addition, you certify that the Funding Account is an Account from which you are authorized to make payments and incur debits.

    You agree to have sufficient Available Funds on deposit in the designated Funding Account to process each Payment as requested by you, as well as any other payment obligations you have to us. We reserve the right, without liability, to reject or reverse a Payment if you fail to comply with this requirement or any other terms of this section. If you do not have sufficient Available Funds in the Funding Account and we have not exercised our right to reverse or reject a Payment, you agree to pay for such Payment obligations on demand. You further agree that we may, at our option, charge any of your Accounts to cover such Payment obligations. If you fail to pay such Payment obligations, you agree to pay our costs of collection, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, except as limited by Applicable Law. If Payments process against any uncollected deposit, uncollected balance or otherwise insufficient Available Funds in the designated Funding Account, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE ASSESSED AND CHARGED THE APPROPRIATE OVERDRAFT, UNCOLLECTED OR RETURNED ITEM INSUFFICIENT CHARGE. See our current Fee Schedule for the current amounts of these charges.

    In addition, if you do not have sufficient Available Funds in the Funding Account and the Service Provider nevertheless pays a Payment as requested by you, in addition to any other payment obligations you have to us, you agree to pay such Payment obligations to the Service Provider on demand, except as limited by Applicable Law.

    The Service Provider and/or we reserve the right to suspend or discontinue the Bill Payment Service at any time while an overdraft exists in your Funding Account or if fraud or other misuse of the Bill Payment Service is suspected.

    You authorize the Service Provider and us to contact your Payees to request appropriate adjustments consistent with your Payment instructions and/or as pertaining to the SERVICE GUARANTEE and YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES sections above, and/or to stop payment on any payment issued against your Funding Account in connection with the Bill Payment Service in the unlikely event that the Bill Payment Service remits funds incorrectly to any of your Payees, and/or to withdraw funds from your Funding Account in such event if you otherwise receive the benefit of the amount of such incorrectly remitted funds.

  12. Returned Payments

    In using the Bill Payment Service, you understand that Payments may be returned by or to the Service Provider for various reasons including: the account or account number at the Payee is not valid, the Payee address is not valid, the Payee returns or rejects the remittance item, the account at the Payee has been paid in full or has been turned over to another company or individual. The Bill Payment Service shall use commercially reasonable efforts to research and correct the returned payment or void the payment and credit your Payment Account. You may receive notification of such occurrences from the Bill Payment Service.

  13. Termination by You

    You may terminate the Bill Payment Service by written notice to us. Neither we nor the Service Provider is responsible for terminating any scheduled One-Time Payment nor Recurring Payment processed prior to a reasonable opportunity to act on your termination notice. Once your Bill Payment Service is terminated, all of your scheduled One-Time Payments and Recurring Payments shall be terminated as well. You remain obligated for all Payments made by the Bill Payment Service on your behalf under this section.

  14. Fees

    You agree to pay applicable fees related to the Bill Payment Service in accordance with any fee disclosed at the time of the related transaction or, if not specifically disclosed, in accordance with our Fee Schedule. In addition, we will assess charges in accordance with the Fee Schedule if you request one or more of the services listed here. There will be no charge for any item if needed to correct a Bill Payment Service error. Services for which such additional charges may be imposed include:

    • Check Copy Mailed or Faxed to Customer or Bank (Film Research)

    • Check Copy Mailed to Merchant (Film Research)

    • Stop Payment

    • Overnight Carrier Delivery Charge (Expedited Payment) per item (See Fee Disclosed within Bill Payment Service)

    • Research Fee for items over eight (8) months old (Film Research)

    We and/or the Service Provider reserve the right to charge you for research time involving Payments no longer available in your Payment history screen. You will be informed of any such charges before they are incurred.

  15. Electronic Mail (Email)

    Sending email is a permitted way to communicate with us and/or the Service Provider regarding the Bill Payment Service. However, your email is actually sent via your own software and, as a result, is not secure. Because of this, you should not include confidential information, such as Account numbers and balances, in any email communication. You cannot use email to initiate Bill Payment Service transactions. All such transactions must be initiated using the appropriate functions within the Bill Payment Service. Neither the Service Provider nor we shall be liable for any errors, omissions, claims, or problems of any kind involving your email. You should not rely on email if you need to communicate with us and/or the Service Provider immediately (for example, if you need to report an unauthorized transaction from one of your Accounts). We and/or the Service Provider will take action in response to an email request sent by you upon actual receipt of your message and once we and/or the Service Provider have had a reasonable opportunity to act.

  16. Account and Contact Information

    It is your sole responsibility to maintain accurate and complete contact information and Funding Account information in your user profile. This includes, but is not limited to, name, address, phone numbers and email addresses, and verifying account numbers. Changes can be made within the Bill Payment Service. Changes you make are typically effective immediately. Neither the Service Provider nor we shall be responsible for any payment processing errors or fees incurred if you do not provide accurate Funding Account or contact information.

FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT (FM) SOFTWARE

You may supplement and/or enhance your use of the Service by use of a one-way connection ("Web Connect") from the Service to certain FM software (e.g., Intuit's QuickBooks and related products), which allows you to automatically download Online Transactions and match them with existing transactions from your financial management software.

    You authorize us to select any means we deem suitable to provide your instructions to the applicable financial institution.

You understand that if the stop payment request comes too late for us to have a reasonable time to act on it prior to paying, settling for, posting or becoming accountable for the check described in the request, then your stop payment request shall be of no effect. You agree not to make a claim against us if the check is paid through inadvertence, accident, oversight or if we are required to pay such check by a holder in due course or if by reason of such payment, other items drawn on your Account(s) are returned insufficient.

SECURITY

  1. Your Username, Password and Other Security Procedures

    You will be required to use a Username assigned to or selected by you, as well as a password selected by you, each time you log-in to use Online Banking. You agree that we may rely on your Username, password and other security procedures, as further described below and as we may modify in our sole and exclusive discretion from time to time, to identify and authenticate you when you use the Service (hereinafter, collectively the “Security Procedures”). You agree to protect the Security Procedures to prevent unauthorized use.

    Account Security: You are solely responsible for controlling the safekeeping of and access to your Username, password or other means to access the Account and the Bill Payment Service, as well as Online Banking. You agree not to give out or make available your Username, password, access code or other access tools as applicable and as necessary to access your Account to any unauthorized individuals. You are responsible for all Payment transactions authorized by you or by anyone to whom you provide access to your Bill Payment Service and Account. You are liable for all Payment transactions you make or that you authorize another person to make even if that person exceeds his or her authority.

    The following Security Procedures apply to access by all customers, except as otherwise expressly provided, to Sturdy Savings Bank Online Banking Service, including the Mobile Banking Service feature of Online Banking. The Bank may issue new Security Procedures and/or cancel or change any Security Procedures from time to time.

    Except as may otherwise be noted, the following Security Procedures are required for all Online Banking Service customers:

    Username: This is the electronic identification (in letters, numerals and special characters) associated with each user of the Online Banking Service that will be used for log-in.

    Password: Each user of the Online Banking Service will also be required to have a unique password known only to the user. Passwords are case-sensitive and must meet certain requirements including but not limited to minimum and maximum length and types of characters, as further described in the Online Banking service. Each user is required to change his or her individual password from time to time for security purposes and on a frequency established by the Bank. Usernames and individual passwords may not be shared with any other person or entity.

    Enhanced Log-in Security: In addition to the above individual Usernames and passwords, access to the Online Banking Service includes, as part of the security procedures, a multi-factor authentication security procedure at log-in for each user. Enhanced log-in security incorporates an additional multi-part credential for each user of Online Banking of identity authentication that may include, but is not limited to, additional log-in security features such as security cookies, and one-time pass-codes. The enhanced log-in security will require each user of Online Banking to establish and utilize, in addition to individual Usernames and passwords, his/her own individual authentication by selecting a preferred out-of-band delivery channel for one-time pass-codes that may be required from time to time at log-in. These log-in pass-codes may be delivered to users via email or such other method as Bank may offer from time to time, including but not limited to delivery to a designated phone or Mobile Device, as applicable, either by voicemail or SMS text.

    Mobile Authorization Code: This is a four-digit numeric code (like an ATM PIN) that is set-up by you during enrollment in the Mobile Banking Service to be used for certain Online Banking Service activities and transactions initiated using a Mobile Device, including but not limited to Bill Payment Service transactions.

    Minimum System Requirements: Online Banking is designed to operate using the latest operating system and browser combinations. It is important for you to keep your Computer’s operating system and browser version current to ensure maximum security and user experience. The operating systems and browsers listed at www.sturdyonline.com are the minimum requirements necessary to ensure a positive experience while using Online Banking. Those requirements are in addition to the Computer requirements described in this Agreement, and the recommendations available at the Online Banking Service website and associated web pages, including but not limited to the following:

    • update the Computer operating system

    • keep the browser current

    • install anti-virus software and anti-spyware software

    • change passwords on a regular basis

    • do not click links inside spam email, especially emails claiming to offer anti-spyware software

  2. Additional Strongly Recommended Security Procedures

    From time to time and as applicable, the Bank may make available additional Security Procedures for use with Online Banking. The Bank strongly recommends the use of these additional Security Procedures to help deter and protect against unauthorized transactions associated with the Services, including the following:

    • Alerts: As further described in this Agreement, the Bank provides optional Account and security alerts associated with certain modules of Online Banking and the Mobile Banking Service that you may elect to use. Alerts may be set up to notify you of key Online Banking transactions or when other important activity has occurred. Additional details about Online Banking alerts are available at the Online Banking Service website and associated web pages.

    • Security Center: The Bank provides important information, recommendations and best practices for Internet banking security at its Security Center - located at www.sturdyonline.com. As an important additional security procedure, it is recommended that all customers regularly review and implement the various actions described at the Security Center to help protect their financial and other sensitive information and mitigate fraud.

      We will execute authenticated transfers or transactions that are in conformity with all Security Procedures and other requirements set forth in this Agreement. We may require additional authentication of any transfer or transaction request. We reserve the right to reject a transfer or transaction request that cannot be properly authenticated.

      Except as is more fully discussed in this Agreement, you understand and agree that you are responsible for all transfers and payments made through the Service using the Security Procedures. You also acknowledge and agree that if you permit another party(ies) to use the Security Procedures to access the Service, or otherwise authorize them to use the Service, you are responsible for any and all Online Transactions that party(ies) makes from your Account, even if it exceeds your authorization. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, we may follow and comply with any transfer instructions entered into the Service using the Security Procedures.

      You acknowledge and understand the importance of your role in preventing misuse of your Accounts through Online Banking. You agree that it is your sole responsibility to protect the confidentiality of your Account and Account number, the Security Procedures, and your personal identification information, such as your driver’s license number and social security or tax identification number. You should not use a public computer to access Online Banking. You agree that if you access the Service from a computer other than your own (such as a public computer terminal at a library or Internet café), you will not leave the computer unattended while using the Service. You also agree that, in such situations, you will always end your session using the Service by clicking on the LOG OFF button located at the bottom left on the navigation bar. We will not be liable to you for any losses that may result from your failure to follow these security provisions.

      You understand that personal identification information, by itself or together with information related to your Account, may allow unauthorized entry and access to your Account. Data transferred via Online Banking is encrypted in an effort to provide transmission security, and Online Banking utilizes identification technology to verify that the sender and receiver of Online Banking transmissions can be appropriately identified by each other.

      We will never email you to request your Username and password or your personal Account information over the Internet. If you suspect that an unsolicited email of this nature is fraudulent, please contact us.

  3. Safeguarding Your Information

    The security of customer information is a priority to us. We are strongly committed to the safety and confidentiality of your records. Every day, unscrupulous individuals are busy developing new scams targeting the unsuspecting public. One of the best ways to avoid fraud is to become an educated consumer.

    Watch out for copycat Websites that deliberately use a name or Web address very similar to, but not the same as the real one. The intent is to lure you into clicking through to their Website and giving out your personal information, such as a bank account number, credit card number or Online Banking login information.

    Always use your pre-established links to access Websites and avoid clicking on links in unsolicited e-mails. If you ever receive a suspicious e-mail representing itself as Sturdy Savings Bank, please forward the message in its entirety to ebanking@sturdyonline.com.

    Ensure that your own personal computer has updated anti-virus and firewall protections. Apply security patches for all of your programs and operating systems regularly.

    Passwords should be unique to you and changed regularly. Do not use birthdays or other numbers or words that may be easy for others to guess. Never write down your password or give it to another person.

    Monitor your account activity frequently using our free Online and Mobile Banking services.

    Sign up for free Online Banking e-Statements to avoid having your paper statement sitting in an unsecure mailbox where it could be compromised.

    Set up free Security and Balance Alerts through Online Banking to be notified by e-mail and/or SMS text message when there are changes in your expected balance.

    We will never ask for or email you requesting your online banking password. We may on occasion call to verify other information regarding your online activity should we see something of concern in your login patterns. If you plan to travel and use your Online Banking or Sturdy Savings Bank Visa Debit Card, it is very helpful to contact us in advance to avoid your account being temporarily disabled for security purposes.

  4. Security Procedures

    You understand that the financial institution at which an Account is maintained may contact us to verify the content and authority of instructions and any changes to those instructions. You understand that, as your agent, we may provide to such financial institution such information as may be required to verify the instructions and as may constitute a valid security procedure under the rules governing such Account.

  5. Deviating from Security Procedures

    You agree to allow us to authorize any financial institution at which you have an Account to accept instructions in accordance with any authorization procedures as may be agreed from time to time between you and such financial institution, or between us, on your behalf, and such financial institution, without verifying the instructions under the established security procedures, regardless of whether such security procedures were agreed by you directly or by us on your behalf. In addition, you agree that we may authorize such financial institutions to release your Account information based solely on these communications.

    For additional information and security tips, visit Sturdy’s website at www.sturdyonline.com and click on the Security Page.

FEES AND CHARGES

You agree to pay the fees and charges for your use of the Service as set forth in the Fee Schedule as it may be amended from time to time with notice to you as required by Applicable Law. You agree that all such fees and charges will be deducted from the checking Account you designate as the “Primary Checking Account.” If you close your Primary Checking Account, you must contact us immediately to designate another Account as your Primary Checking Account. You agree to pay any and all additional charges for services you request which are not covered by this Agreement. You are also responsible for telephone and Internet service fees you incur in connection with your use of Online Banking.

BUSINESS ONLINE BANKING SERVICES

The Service covered by this Agreement allows a Business to perform the following additional functions: (i.) ACH Origination (ii.) Wire Transfers; (iii.) ACH EFTPS. Wire Transfers, ACH and ACH EFTPS require additional agreements between you and Sturdy Savings Bank.

The Company Administrator will maintain full access and responsibility over all accounts and services requested. Sole responsibility will remain with the Company Administrator who may assign and revoke access and authorities to additional users. The Company Administrator may assign different levels of access and authorities. By assigning access to other users, the Company Administrator accepts responsibility for educating said users in safe online banking practices. Education should include, but is not limited to, maintaining and protecting secure login credentials including user ID and user passwords.

You shall perform your obligations under this Agreement in accordance with all Applicable Laws and regulations, including the sanctions laws administered by Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC). It shall further be your responsibility to obtain information regarding such OFAC enforced sanctions (This information may be obtained directly from the OFAC Compliance Hotline at 800-540-OFAC).

TRANSACTION LIMITS

You will, upon request by us from time to time, provide us with such financial information and statements and such other documentation as we reasonably determine to be necessary or appropriate showing your financial condition, as applicable, to enable us to evaluate our exposure or risk and establish any transaction limits that may apply for your use of the Service. Any limits established by us hereunder shall be made in our sole discretion and shall be communicated promptly to you.

In the event that providing the Service to you results in unacceptable credit exposure or other risk to us or will cause us to violate any law, regulation, rule or order to which we are subject, we may, in our sole and exclusive discretion, without prior notice or as otherwise required by Applicable Law, further limit your transaction volume or dollar amount and refuse to execute transactions that exceed any such limit, or we may terminate any or all of the Service then being provided to you.

BUSINESS ONLINE BANKING INFORMATION SECURITY AND BEST PRACTICES

  • Monitor accounts frequently (daily as a best practice). Immediately review Wire, ACH or other transaction confirmations.

  • Implement dual controls for ACH and Wire transfers so that dual approval is required before the transaction is initiated at the Originating Depository Financial Institution (ODFI).

  • Never share User IDs, passwords, PIN numbers, dynamic tokens, etc. with anyone. Do not leave them in an area that is not locked/secured.

  • Do not use the same login or password on any other website or software.

  • Obtain and install antivirus, anti-malware and anti-spyware software, and consider installation of a firewall (and make sure it is active and automatically updated by the vendor, or take necessary steps to keep it updated).

  • Limit or eliminate unnecessary web surfing and/or e-mail activity by employees, including personal activity, on computers used for Business Online Banking.

  • Consider a dedicated computer for Business Online Banking that is never used for e-mail or general internet browsing/surfing (cost of computer vs. loss).

  • Educate all company/entity personnel on good cyber security best practices, clearing the Internet browser’s cache before and after visiting the Sturdy Savings Bank’s website, to avoid having malware installed on a computer.

  • E.g., if a media player needs to be updated, go to the official media player website to install the update. Clicking on a fake update installation link could just mask a hacker downloading malware onto a computer.

  • Verify use of a secure session (“https://” not “http://”).

  • Avoid saving passwords to a computer.

  • Never leave a computer unattended when using Business Online Banking, and always lock your computer when unattended.

  • Never access Sturdy Savings Bank’s website for Business Online Banking (or any privileged or sensitive computer system) from a public computer at a hotel/motel, library, coffee house or other public wireless access point.

  • Criteria for a Company Administrator dedicated computer:

    • The computer should be physically secured,

    • The computer should be behind a physical firewall,

    • The computer should be placed on its own subnet, if possible,

    • All Security Patches must be up-to-date,

    • Antivirus Software should be installed and definitions must be up-to-date,

    • Anti-Spyware/ Anti-Malware are also recommended.

  • It is recommended that the Company Administrator only use their access for resetting and setting up additional users. The Company Administrator should have a separate login for initiating Business Online Banking transactions. The reason this is suggested is if the Company Administrator’s credentials are compromised, the fraudster has access to all controls and even creating sub users to allow access for approving transactions.

  • The Company Administrator should be the only user that is permitted to add additional users for the company. Additional users should not be permitted to add additional users.

  • Close all other applications and browser windows before initiating Business Online Banking.

  • Look for any strange or foreign changes on the website. If you see anything different or unusual, contact Sturdy Savings Bank at (609) 463-5230 immediately.

PART II

ADDITIONAL DISCLOSURES REGARDING ELECTRONIC FUNDS TRANSFERS

ELECTRONIC FUND TRANSFERS (EFTs)

Your use of Online Banking, including the Bill Payment Service and Mobile Banking Service, is subject to the Electronic Fund Transfer Act. In addition to the foregoing, please see the Electronic Fund Transfers Disclosure section of your Account Rules and Agreements or otherwise received when you opened your Deposit Account(s), which also discloses important information concerning your rights and obligations for EFTs.

ACCOUNT STATEMENTS

We report your Online Transactions on the periodic statements for your Account(s). You agree to review your periodic statement promptly after you receive it or it is made available to you through Online Banking in accordance with this Agreement and the terms of your Account Rules and Agreements. You also agree to tell us promptly about any change in your address, so that we may send your periodic statement(s) to your correct address. Certain Deposit Accounts, including but not limited to savings Accounts, money market deposit Accounts, CDs and IRAs, will receive a quarterly statement if there is no EFT activity.

We do not permit EFTs on passbook savings Accounts with us. When you bring your passbook to one of our branch locations, we will record any transactions made to your passbook savings Account since the last time you brought in your passbook.

A copy of any documentation provided to you that indicates that an EFT was made shall be admissible as evidence of such transfer and shall constitute prima facie proof that such transfer was made.

UNAUTHORIZED ONLINE TRANSACTIONS FROM YOUR DEPOSIT ACCOUNT(S)

Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your Username or password has been stolen or compromised or if someone has transferred or may transfer money from your Account without your permission. The best way to minimize your loss is to call us IMMEDIATELY. You could lose all your money in the account(s), if you take no action to notify us of the loss or theft of your Username or Password. If you contact us within 2 Business Days of the loss or theft or your discovery of the loss or theft, you can lose no more that $50 if someone used your Username or Password without your permission. If you do NOT contact us within 2 Business Days after the loss or theft or your discovery of the loss or theft, and we can prove that we could have prevented someone from using your Username or Password without your permission if you had contacted us, you could lose as much as $500. Also, if your periodic statement shows transfers that you did not make and you do NOT contact 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 making the transfers, if you had contacted us. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.

To notify us, please contact us using the information provided in the section entitled YOUR COMMUNICATIONS WITH Sturdy Savings Bank.

When you give someone your Username or password, you are authorizing that person to use your Service, and you are responsible for all Online Transactions the person performs using your Service. All transactions that person performs, even transactions you did not intend or want performed, are authorized transactions. If you notify us that the person is no longer authorized, then transactions that person performs after the time you notify us are considered unauthorized, so long as we have had a reasonable opportunity to act on your notice. Transactions that you or someone acting with you initiates with fraudulent intent are also authorized transactions. For your protection, you should sign-off after every Online Banking session and close your browser to ensure confidentiality.

DISCLOSURE OF DEPOSIT ACCOUNT INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES

We will disclose information to third parties about your Deposit Account and/or the Online Transactions you make:

  1. Where it is necessary for the completion of an Online Transaction or to resolve errors;

  2. For verification of the existence and condition of your Deposit Account for a third party, such as a credit bureau or merchant;

  3. In order to comply with a government agency or court order or lawful subpoena;

  4. If you give us your written permission, which will expire after forty-five (45) days;

  5. To our employees, auditors, attorneys and collection agencies in the course of their regular duties; or

  6. In accordance with our privacy policy.

RIGHT TO GET DOCUMENTATION OF EFTS

You will get a monthly statement covering the EFT transactions that you conduct on your Deposit Account (unless there are no EFTs in a particular month, in any case you will get a statement at least quarterly). You agree to review your monthly statement promptly after you receive it in accordance with this Agreement and your Account Rules and Agreements. You also agree to tell us promptly about any change in your address, so that we may send your monthly statements to your correct address. Certain Deposit Accounts, including but not limited to savings accounts, money market deposit accounts, CDs and IRAs, will receive a quarterly statement if there is no EFT activity.

If you have arranged to have direct deposits made to your Deposit Account at least once every sixty (60) days from the same person or company, you can call us at the phone number listed in the section entitled YOUR COMMUNICATIONS WITH Sturdy Savings Bank to find out whether the deposit has been made.

If you have a passbook savings account with us where the only possible type of EFTs are direct deposits, and if you bring your passbook to us, we will record any electronic deposits made to your passbook savings account since the last time you brought in your passbook.

A copy of any documentation provided to you that indicates that an EFT transaction was made shall be admissible as evidence of such transfer and shall constitute prima facie proof that such transfer was made.

STOP PAYMENT OF PREAUTHORIZED EFTS

If you have told us in advance to make regular, preauthorized EFTs from your Deposit Account(s), you can stop any of these payments. Here's how: call or write to us at the phone number and/or address provided in the section entitled YOUR COMMUNICATIONS WITH Sturdy Savings Bank.

In order to stop payment on preauthorized EFTs, we must be notified at least three (3) Business Days prior to the regularly scheduled EFT date. If you call, we may also require you to put your request in writing and get it to us within fourteen (14) days after you call. We may charge you a fee (as provided in our Fee Schedule) for each stop payment order that you give.

Notice of Varying Amounts of Preauthorized EFT

If your preauthorized EFTs vary in amount, the person (or organization) you are going to pay will tell you at least ten (10) days before each payment, when it will be made, and how much it will be. You may choose instead to get this notice only when the payment would differ by more than a certain amount from the previous payment, or when the amount would fall outside certain limits that you set.

LIABILITY FOR FAILURE TO STOP PAYMENT OF PREAUTHORIZED EFTS FROM YOUR DEPOSIT ACCOUNTS

If you order us to stop one of these payments from your Deposit Account(s) three (3) Business Days or more before the transfer is scheduled, and we do not do so, we will be liable for your losses or damages, subject to the limitations set forth in your Account Rules and Agreements and elsewhere in this Agreement.

OUR LIABILITY IF WE FAIL TO MAKE CERTAIN EFTS FROM YOUR DEPOSIT ACCOUNTS

If we do not complete an EFT to or from your Deposit Account on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we will be liable only for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions to our liability to you. We will NOT be liable, for instance:

  1. If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your Deposit Account(s) to make the transfer.

  2. If the transfer would go over the credit limit on any overdraft line of credit associated with your Deposit Account.

  3. If the Service was not working properly and you knew about the breakdown when you started the Online Transaction.

  4. If circumstances beyond our control prevent us from making a transfer or payment, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken (such circumstances include Internet or wireless telecommunication outages or interruptions, postal strikes, delays caused by payees, fires, and floods).

  5. If you do not give proper, complete or correct transfer instructions, or you do not follow the procedures in this or any other Account Rules and Agreements with us for requesting such services.

  6. If your User ID and/or password has been reported lost or stolen, or we have canceled your User ID and/or password, or the Service.

  7. If we have reason to believe that you or someone else is using the Service for fraudulent or illegal purposes.

  8. If the funds in your Deposit Account are subject to legal process or other encumbrances restricting their transfer.

There may be other exceptions and limitations stated in this Agreement and in our Account Rules and Agreements with you.

For errors involving new Deposit Accounts or foreign-initiated transactions, we may take up to ninety (90) days to investigate your complaint or question. For new Deposit Accounts, we may take up to twenty (20) Business Days to credit your Deposit Account for the amount you think is in error.

OVERDRAFTS; SET-OFF

We may, but shall not be obligated to, complete any transaction in connection with providing the Service if there are insufficient Available Funds in your Account(s) to complete the transaction. The honoring of one or more of your overdrafts, however, does not obligate us to honor any future overdrafts. If you have an “Overdraft Privilege” feature with your Deposit Account, any check or debit that overdraws such Deposit Account will be honored up to your available limit.In the event any actions by you result in an overdraft in any of your Accounts, including but not limited to your failure to maintain sufficient balances in any of your Accounts, you shall be responsible for repaying the overdraft and any fee associated therewith immediately and without notice or demand, except as otherwise required by Applicable Law. Except to the extent prohibited or limited by Applicable Law, we have the right, in addition to all other rights and remedies available to us, to set-off the unpaid balance of any amount owed us in connection with the Service against any debt owing to you by us, including, without limitation, any obligation under a repurchase agreement or any funds held at any time by us, whether collected or in the process of collection, or in any other Account maintained by you at or evidenced by any certificate of deposit issued by us. If any of your Accounts become overdrawn, under-funded or for any reason contain a negative balance, then we shall have the right of set-off against all of your Accounts and other property or deposit Accounts maintained with us, and we shall have the right to enforce our interests in collateral held by us to secure your debts to us arising from notes or other indebtedness now or hereafter owing or existing under this Agreement, whether or not matured or liquidated, except to the extent prohibited or limited by Applicable Law.

COMPUTER REQUIREMENTS

To use the Service, you will need to provide, at your own expense, a computer or other Internet access device, software and necessary telephone lines, Internet or other connections and equipment as needed to access the Service (collectively referred to here as the “Computer”). You are responsible for the installation, maintenance and operation of the Computer. Your Internet or other web browser software must support a minimum 128-bit SSL encryption or other security measures as we may specify from time to time. We are not responsible for any errors or failures caused by any malfunction of the Computer, and we are not responsible for any virus or related problems that may be associated with the use of the Service, the Computer or other Internet access, including but not limited to any virus, trojan horse, worm, keystroke logger, rootkit, spyware, dishonest adware, crimeware and other malicious and unwanted software or related problems that may be associated with access to or use of the Service or the Computer. We recommend that you routinely scan the Computer using reliable virus protection products, and to remove any viruses found using such products. You are responsible for all Internet service provider, telephone and other similar charges incurred in connecting to the Service. From time to time, we may require that you upgrade or install software to the Computer to ensure the proper operation of the Service. You agree to promptly load any such upgrades or additional installations upon our notice to you.

OUR THIRD PARTIES

You acknowledge that certain third parties, agents or independent service providers (hereinafter “Third Parties”) may, from time to time, provide services (“Third Party Services”) to us in connection with our provision of the Service to you and that, accordingly, our ability to provide the Service hereunder may be contingent upon the continuing availability of certain services from such Third Parties. Third Party Services may involve the processing and/or transmission of your data, instructions (oral or written) and funds. You agree that we may disclose your financial information to such Third Parties (i) where it is necessary to provide the Service requested; (ii) in order to comply with laws, government agency rules or orders, court orders, subpoenas or other legal process or in order to give information to any government agency or official having legal authority to request such information; (iii) when you give your written permission; or (iv) where otherwise required or permitted by Applicable Law.

We will be responsible for the acts and omissions of our Third Parties in the same manner as if we had performed that portion of the Service ourselves, and no claim may be brought by you against such Third Parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any claims against us (with respect to the acts or omissions of our Third Parties) or our Third Parties shall be subject to the limitations of liability set forth in this Agreement to the same extent as if we had performed that portion of the Service ourselves. We will not be deemed to be the agent of or responsible for the acts or omissions of any person (other than our Third Parties), however, and no such person shall be deemed our agent.

Proprietary Rights

You are permitted to use the Service only as expressly authorized by this Agreement. You may not copy, reproduce, distribute, or create derivative works, reverse engineer, or reverse compile the Service.

YOUR RIGHT TO TERMINATE

You may cancel or terminate your use of Online Banking at any time by providing us with written notice by email, postal mail or fax. Your access to Online Banking will be suspended within three (3) Business Days of our receipt of your instructions to cancel the Service. You will remain responsible for all outstanding fees and charges incurred through the date of cancellation. This cancellation applies only to your access to the Service and does not terminate your Account(s).

If you choose to cancel your access to the Service, any unprocessed transfers will be cancelled. We recommend that you cancel any scheduled transfers prior to notifying us that you are discontinuing the Service. We normally will cancel any scheduled transfers within two (2) Business Days from the date we receive your request to cancel your access to the Service. However, we are not responsible for transfers made pursuant to instructions received from you before your cancellation request was received.

If you close your Account(s), or if you no longer have any Account(s) linked to the Service, your access to the Service will automatically be discontinued, and we reserve the right to cancel any unprocessed transfers at the time of such discontinuation of the Service.

OUR RIGHT TO SUSPEND OR TERMINATE

In addition to any other provision in this Agreement or the Account Rules and Agreements on the subject, the Bank may, in its sole discretion and without prior notice to you unless otherwise required by Applicable Law, elect to suspend or terminate your use of Online Banking (i) if you or we close the Account(s) established in connection with Online Banking, (ii) if we reasonably suspect that you have engaged in fraud or other abuse with regard to Online Banking, (iii) in the event of a material breach in the performance or observance of any term, or breach of any representation or warranty, by you, (iv) if we believe immediate action is required for the security of your or the Bank’s funds, or (v) if we reasonably believe that the continued provision of Online Banking would violate federal, state or local laws or regulations, or would subject the Bank to unacceptable risk of loss. Notwithstanding any termination, this section and the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect with respect to all transactions initiated prior to such termination.

Privacy Policy and Confidentiality

We regard your privacy and security with the utmost importance, and we are absolutely committed to safeguarding any information that you share with us. In order to provide the Service, we must obtain from you certain personal information about you, your Accounts, and your transactions (referred to herein as “User Information”).

All of your personal and financial information will be placed on a secure portion of our website. We have multiple levels of security that have been designed especially for us.

We may change the terms governing your use of Online Banking, including the terms of this Agreement or the fees and charges associated with the Service and/or any policy or procedure affecting your use of the Service, at any time. We will provide you with notice of such changes when and as required by Applicable Law. All changes will be effective upon the date provided in the notice. However, if the change is in your favor (such as the termination or reduction of a fee), we may provide you notice of the change after it is effective. We will post any required notice of the change in terms on the Online Banking website or forward it to you by email or by postal mail, or as otherwise required by Applicable Law. Your continued use of any or all of the subject Online Banking service(s) indicates your acceptance of the change in terms. We reserve the right to waive, reduce or reverse charges or fees in individual situations. You acknowledge and agree that the applicable Account Rules and Agreements and any associated disclosures govern changes to fees applicable to specific Accounts, including changes to those fees set forth in the Fee Schedule.

We cannot otherwise act on instructions sent by you from an external email address except through the secure messaging service that we make available to you through the Service.

We will not immediately receive email that you send. Therefore, you should not rely on email if you need to communicate with us immediately (for example, to report a lost or stolen ATM or debit card and/or password, to report an unauthorized transaction from one of your Deposit Accounts, or to report an error on your statement). We will not take actions based on your email requests until we actually receive your message and have a reasonable opportunity to act.
