Internet Security Information - Our Internet Banking service utilizes a comprehensive security strategy to protect accounts and transactions conducted over the Internet. In addition to our login security, we use SSL secure socket layer encryption technology for everything done in the system. Your browser automatically activates this technology when it attempts to connect to our system and it will support 128-bit key lengths. Whenever SSL is securing your communications, the browser will typically indicate the "secure session" by changing the appearance of a small padlock icon at the bottom of the screen from open to locked. What this means to you is that your communications are scrambled from your browser to our servers at all times, so no unauthorized party can read the information as it is carried over the Internet. Additionally, our servers have been certified by a "Certificate Authority" to assure you that you are actually talking to our servers instead of someone pretending to be us.
During your use of the Internet Banking system, we will pass a "cookie" to your browser to identify you. We do not and cannot use our cookies to obtain new information about you. A "cookie" is security data given to a browser by a web server and returned by the browser on subsequent transmissions to identify the user and encryption information. When you log onto the system, this cookie enables us to process multiple transactions during the session without you having to provide your Login ID and password for each individual transaction. After a predetermined amount of time set by our security system or when you log off, the session cookie is no longer accepted. A new cookie is used for each session, so that no one can use the cookie to access your account. For Cash Management users, a cookie may also be used to restrict access to a specific PC for conducting business transactions.
Registration Process - The service requires the customer to complete the initial registration process. This involves printing an Enrollment Form and mailing it to our office. The information on the Enrollment Form will identify everything we will need to enable the service. Once we verify the information you submitted for accuracy and authorizations, you will be notified when your account will be activated by mail.
Access - To use SYSTEM, you must have at least one account at BANK, access to Internet service and an email address. Once we have received your signed Enrollment Form and verified your account information, we will send you e-mail confirmation of our acceptance of your enrollment, along with your assigned Login ID. Your temporary password will be forwarded through the postal system. SYSTEM can be used to access only the BANK accounts designated for access by SYSTEM in your Enrollment Form. You can add or delete any of your BANK accounts from this Agreement by completing a new Enrollment Form. Access to your accounts through SYSTEM will be based upon the identification of users and authority levels specified by you in your Enrollment Form. We undertake no obligation to monitor transactions through SYSTEM to determine that they are made on behalf of the account holder.
SYSTEM Services - You can use SYSTEM to check the balance of your BANK accounts, view BANK account histories, transfer funds between your BANK accounts, order checks, make stop payment requests, change your address and pay bills from your BANK accounts in the amounts and on the dates you request if you have requested the Bill Payment Service on your Enrollment Form. Balance and activity information are available as of 3:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time for the previous day.
Hours of Access - You can use SYSTEM seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day, although occasionally some or all SYSTEM services may not be available due to emergency or scheduled system maintenance. We agree to post notice of any extended periods of non-availability on the SYSTEM website.
Your Password - For security purposes, you are required to change your password upon your initial login to SYSTEM. You determine what password you will use; the identity of your password is not communicated to us. You agree that we are authorized to act on instructions received under your password. You accept responsibility for the confidentiality and security of your password and agree to change your password regularly. Upon three unsuccessful attempts to use your password, your access to SYSTEM will be revoked. To re-establish your authorization to use SYSTEM, you must contact us to have your password reset or to obtain a new temporary password. We recommend that you create a password that utilizes both upper- and lower-case alpha and numeric characters for purposes of security. Your password should not be associated with any commonly known personal identification, such as social security numbers, address, date of birth or names of children, and should be memorized rather than written down.
Security - You understand the importance of your role in preventing misuse of your accounts through SYSTEM, and you agree to promptly examine the paper statement for each of your BANK accounts as soon as you receive it. You agree to protect the confidentiality of your account and account number, and your personal identification information such as your driver's license number and social security number. You understand that personal identification information by itself or together with information related to your account may allow unauthorized access to your account. Your password and Login ID are intended to provide security against unauthorized entry and access to your accounts. Data transferred via SYSTEM is encrypted in an effort to provide transmission security; SYSTEM utilizes identification technology to verify that the sender and receiver of SYSTEM transmissions can be appropriately identified by each other. Notwithstanding our efforts to ensure that the SYSTEM is secure, you acknowledge that the Internet is inherently insecure and that all data transfers, including electronic mail, occur openly on the Internet and can potentially be monitored and read by others. We cannot and do not warrant that all data transfers utilizing BANK SYSTEM, or email transmitted to and from us, will not be monitored or read by others.
Fees and Charges - You agree to pay the fees and charges as set forth in the current fee schedule for your use of SYSTEM Services. You agree that all such fees and charges will be deducted from the BANK checking account designated as the "Primary Checking Account" on your Enrollment Form. If you close your Primary Checking Account, you must contact us immediately to designate another account as your Primary Checking Account.

Transfers completed after 3:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time on a business day, Saturday, Sunday or banking holiday will be posted on the next business day. SYSTEM identifies a transfer based upon the Login ID of the user who made the electronic transfer. Accordingly, you understand and acknowledge that the View Postings screens in both the Transfer and Bill Payer menu options of SYSTEM will not reflect transfers made by multiple users from the same account if different Login IDs are used. You agree to communicate to any other persons with authorized access to your accounts concerning any transfers or bill payments from your accounts, in order to avoid overdrafts.
Overdrafts Order of Payments, Transfers and other Withdrawals - If your account has insufficient funds to perform all electronic fund transfers you have requested for a given business day, then: a Electronic fund transfers involving currency disbursements, like ATM/POS withdrawals, will have priority; b Electronic fund transfers initiated through SYSTEM which would result in an overdraft of your account may, at our discretion, be cancelled and c In the event that electronic fund transfers initiated through SYSTEM which would result in an overdraft of your account are not canceled, overdraft charges may be assessed pursuant to the terms of the deposit agreement for that account.
Limits on Amounts and Frequency of SYSTEM Transactions - The number of transfers from BANK accounts and the amounts that may be transferred are limited pursuant to the terms of the applicable deposit agreement and disclosure for those accounts. If a hold has been placed upon deposits made to an account from which you wish to transfer funds, you cannot transfer the portion of the funds held until the hold expires.
SYSTEM Bill Payment Service - You must designate: the BANK checking account from which the payments are to be made; the complete name of the payee, the account number, and the payee's remittance address, all exactly as shown on the billing statement or invoice; the amount of the payment and the date you want the payment to be debited from your account. If the date you want the payment to be debited from your account is not a business day, your account will be debited during the next business day. By using the SYSTEM Bill Payment Service option, you agree that, based upon instructions received under your password, we can charge your designated account by electronic transfer, "no signature required draft" or by debiting and remitting funds on your behalf. You also agree that your first SYSTEM bill payment fee will be charged to your Primary Checking Account. We reserve the right to refuse payment to any payee designated by you. If we do so, we will notify you promptly.
Scheduling SYSTEM Payments - If the payee is to be paid by paper check as indicated on the Bill Payer list , you understand and agree that paper checks are mailed to the payee and the payee may not receive the payment until 5 to 8 business days after the date the payment is debited from your account. If the payee is to be paid electronically as indicated on the Bill Payer list , you understand and agree that the payee may not receive the payment until 3 days after the date the payment is debited from your account. You understand and agree that we are not responsible for the timely delivery of mail or the improper transmission or handling of payments by a third party, such as the failure of the bill payment payee to properly post a payment to your account.
How to Cancel a Bill Payment - To cancel a bill payment scheduled through SYSTEM, you must cancel the payment online via SYSTEM by following the onscreen instructions before 3:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time on the date the payment is scheduled to be debited from your account.

You may only initiate stop payment requests online via SYSTEM for paper checks you have written non-electronically on your BANK accounts not SYSTEM bill payer paper drafts. Online stop payment requests are processed in a timely manner on the business day following the date the stop payment has been requested online.
