These terms and conditions are in addition to those that apply to any accounts you have with us or any other services you obtain from us. You must follow all of our instructions and procedures applicable to the services covered by this agreement.

"You" and "Your" mean each person or entity who establishes an Internet Banking Customer Account with us or who uses or is authorized to use an Internet Banking Customer Identification Code and password or other means of access we establish or approve. "We"' "us" and "our" mean First State Bank of Purdy, which holds your Internet Banking account. The term "Internet Banking" means our service that allows you to make payments, transfer funds, access accounts, obtain information and perform other transactions by use of an Internet enabled device and/or other means we authorize or allow. The term "merchant" means any business, company, individual or other third party that we agree to establish as a payee for you, and includes us when you are making payments to us.


To access our Internet Banking service, you must use the Login ID and the password and/or other means of access we establish or provide for your Internet Banking Account. Keep your Login ID and password confidential to prevent unauthorized use and loss to your accounts. Anyone to whom you give your Internet Banking Login ID and password or other means of access will have full access to your accounts even if you attempt to limit that person's authority.


You must designate a qualified checking account with us as your primary account. You may not designate any account that requires more than one signature for withdrawals. You must be an owner of this account.

Our Internet Banking Service may permit access to or transactions involving other qualifying accounts. Any qualifying account may not require more than one signature for withdrawals and/or advances. You will be permitted to access or perform transactions involving another qualifying account only if you are an owner of the account.


We will give you instructions, separate from this agreement and disclosure statement, on how to make Internet Banking transactions. Those instructions and your application for service are part of this agreement.


Subject to options you have selected in the Internet Banking Application and subject to Internet Banking services offered and authorized for your use by us, you, or someone you have authorized by giving them your Internet Banking Login ID and password or other means of access (even if that person exceeds your authority), can instruct us to perform the following transactions:

  • Transfer funds between your qualifying accounts to the extent authorized;
  • Obtain information that we make available about your qualifying accounts;
  • Make individual payments or preauthorized recurring payments from an Internet Banking funding account to merchants you have designated in accordance with this agreement; and
  • Make stop payment request to the bank;
  • Send electronic mail to the bank; and
  • Obtain other services or perform other transactions that we authorize.


You must have enough money or credit in any account from which you instruct us to make a payment or transfer. For security reasons, we may implement limits on the number or amount of transactions you can make using our Internet Banking service. If any of your qualifying accounts are money market deposit accounts or savings deposit accounts, certain types of withdrawals from those accounts, which may include payments and transfers, are limited to a total of no more than six (6) in any specified period. The specified period for money market deposit accounts is the monthly statement period. The specified period for savings deposit accounts is the quarterly statement period. The kinds of withdrawals covered by this limitation are those made by means of preauthorized or automatic transfers and payments or telephone agreement, order or instruction. You also agree to the terms and conditions of your deposit account that you received when you opened your deposit account.


You should allow at least one business day for us to process transfers that are internal to us or to process a payment where we are the merchant. Each payment or transfer you initiated on a non-business day will be processed with the following business day’s activity. Information you obtain about your accounts using our Internet Banking service will not reflect transactions that have not yet been posted to your accounts. You should keep that in mind when you perform or attempt to perform any transactions on the basis of such information.


If we do not complete a payment or transfer on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we may be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are exceptions. We will NOT be liable, for instance:

  1. If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough available money in the account from which a payment or transfer is to be made, or if the account has been closed or is not in good standing, or if we reverse a payment or transfer because of insufficient funds.
  2. If any payment or transfer would go over the credit limit of any account.
  3. If your equipment or ours was not working properly and the breakdown should have been apparent to you when you attempted to conduct the transaction.
  4. If you have not given us complete, correct or current account numbers or other identifying information so that we or a merchant or other institution can properly credit your account or otherwise complete the transaction.
  5. If you do not properly follow our instructions or if you provide us with wrong or inaccurate information or fail to correct or tell us about any inaccuracy of which you are aware.
  6. If you receive notice from a merchant or other institution that any payment or transfer you have made remains unpaid or has not been completed, and you fail to notify us promptly of that fact.
  7. If the merchant was a payee that you are not permitted to designate as a merchant (i.e. governmental agency, court etc.).
  8. If you do not instruct us soon enough for your payment or transfer to be received and credited by the time it is due.
  9. If a merchant or other institution (other than us) does not process your payment or transfer promptly or correctly.
  10. If the money in the account from which a payment or transfer is to be made is subject to legal process or other claim restricting the transaction.
  11. If circumstances or persons beyond our control prevent, delay, intercept or alter the transaction, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken.


You warrant that you will perform your obligations under this Agreement consistent with all applicable Bank rules and regulations and that all information that you provide us is accurate, timely, and has been authorized by you, and in the event that you breach any foregoing warranties, you agree to indemnify First State Bank of Purdy against any loss, liability, or expense. You agree to hold First State Bank of Purdy harmless for any and all acts of employees or persons who you grant access to or who gain access to your Internet Banking account. You consent, by execution of this agreement, to disclosure of your customer information to those that gain access to your accounts.

You are liable for all transactions that are initiated under your Login ID, even if the person(s) you authorize exceeds your authority. If you have given someone your Internet Banking Login ID and password or other means of access and want to terminate that person's authority, you must change your Login ID and password and notify us that transactions by such a person are no longer authorized. We may choose to change your Login ID and password or other means of access or take additional steps to prevent further access by such person.

If you believe your Internet Banking Login ID and password or other means of access have been lost or stolen, and you tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone used them without your authority. If you do NOT tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Internet Banking Login ID and password or other means of access, and we can prove that we could have stopped someone from using them without your authority if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.00.

Also, if your statement shows payments or transfers covered by this agreement that you did not make or authorize, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money lost after the sixty (60) days if we can prove that your contacting us would have prevented those losses.

If we complete a payment or transfer that you make or authorize and we subsequently learn that you have insufficient funds for the transaction, you agree that we may reverse the transaction or offset the shortage with funds from any account you have with us. In any case, you are fully obligated to us to provide sufficient funds for any payments or transfers you make or authorize.


Our Internet Banking service is generally available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. However, we only process transactions and update information on business days. Our business days are Monday through Friday. Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays are not included.


If you want to stop or change individual payments or transfers or preauthorized recurring payments or transfers you have instructed us to make, you must notify us before we have started processing the transaction. The normal way to do this is for you to access the appropriate function in our Internet Banking service on the day before the business day the payment or transfer is scheduled to be made, and either delete it or make the change.
