Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfers. 

Tell us AT ONCE if you feel your Internet Account Access has been tampered with or broken into, including if your password is lost or stolen. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your losses down; DO NOT USE E-Mail. You could lose all the money in your accounts plus your maximum line of credit. If you tell us within 2 (two) business days, you can lose no more than $50.00 (fifty dollars). If you do not tell us within 2 (two) business days after you learn of the tampering, and we can prove that we could have stopped someone from accessing your account without your permission if you had told us, you can lose as much as $500.00 (five hundred dollars). Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, tell us AT ONCE. You should examine your statement promptly upon its receipt. If you do not tell us within 60 (sixty) days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 60 (sixty) days if we can prove we could have stopped someone from taking the funds from your account had you told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we may extend the time periods. If you feel your Internet Access Account has been broken into call or write to us at the telephone or address listed below.

Error Resolution Notice. 

With respect to your Internet Banking transfers, call or write to us at the telephone number or address listed below, as soon as you can, if you think your statement is incorrect or if you need more information about a transfer listed on the statement. We must hear from you no later than 60 (sixty) days after we sent you the FIRST statement upon which the error or question appeared. Call or write and follow these steps:

  1. Tell us your name and account number (if any).
  2. Describe the error or question you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.
  3. Tell us the dollar amount.

If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 (ten) business days. We will determine whether an error occurred within 10 business days (20 business days if the transfer involved a new account) after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however we may take up to 45 (forty-five) days (90 days if the transfer involved a new account, a point-of-sale transaction, or a foreign-initiated transfer), or longer if permitted by law, to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 (ten) business days (20 business days if the transfer involved a new account) for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the funds during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 (ten) business days, we may not credit your account. An account is considered a new account for 30 (thirty) days after the first deposit is made, if you are a new customer. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation within 3 (three) business days after we finish our investigation.

Notice of Varying Amounts. 

If these regular payments vary in amount, the person you are going to pay will tell you, 10 (ten) 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.
