INTERNET BANKING AGREEMENT
The first time you access your accounts through Internet Banking, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Internet Banking Agreement (“Agreement”) and acknowledge its receipt and your understanding of its terms. Introduction This Agreement explains the terms and conditions for accessing accounts and conducting transactions at Security State Bank (“Institution”, “Bank”, “we”, “us” and “our”) via our Internet Banking site. As used in this Agreement, the terms “you” and “your” refer to each person submitting an Internet Banking Application. Benefits of Internet Banking Through Internet Banking, you can manage eligible accounts from your home or office on a personal computer. Internet Banking can be used to conduct any of the following:
- Obtain balances and transaction histories on all eligible accounts enrolled in internet banking (All account balances and transaction histories reflect activity through the close of the previous banking day);
- Transfer money between eligible accounts (The number of transfers you can make from an account is limited as described in this agreement. In addition, if a hold is placed on any funds deposited in an eligible account, you may not transfer the portion of funds being held until that hold expires;
- Transfer money to pay the Institution for consumer loans, home equity loans, or certain other eligible loans; and Security State Bank may, from time to time, introduce new Internet Banking services. By using those services when they become available, you agree to be bound by the terms contained in this Agreement, and its subsequent amendments.
Security & Protecting Your Account We are strongly committed to protecting the security and confidentiality of our customer accounts information. We use several techniques to help secure our Internet Banking service, including the following:
- You can only access the bank with certain browsers that have a high security standard.
- Your account numbers are never displayed in full – only the last three (3) digits can be viewed.
- You must have a valid Internet Banking User ID and password to logon.
- If no action is taken, you will be automatically logged off the Internet Banking service.
- Your Internet Banking Account will be temporarily disabled after three (3) failed login attempts. After thirty minutes, you will be able to make another attempt. If you cannot successfully log in after three (3) more attempts, your account will be permanently disabled and you will have to call the bank to reactivate your account.
- Your Internet Banking Account will be deleted after 90 days of inactivity.
Requirements To access Internet Banking, you should have Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0 or higher, Google Chrome or the latest version of Mozilla Firefox or compatible web browser and 128-bit data encryption. In addition to compatible software, you must have an Internet Banking User ID, a password and maintain an account at Security State Bank. Password Your password will give you access to Security State Bank accounts via Internet Banking. Security State Bank is entitled to act on any instructions it receives using your password. For security purposes, it is recommended that you memorize your password and do not write it down. We also recommend that you change your password regularly to try and avoid misappropriation by a third party. Your password can be changed at our Internet Banking site. You are responsible for keeping your password and account data confidential. When you give someone your password, you are authorizing that person to use Internet Banking. You are responsible for all transactions performed using your password, even if you did not intend or authorize them. In addition, fraudulent transactions initiated using your password will be charged against your account(s). Accessibility You can usually access Internet Banking seven (7) days a week, 24 hours a day. However, at certain times, some or all of Internet Banking may not be available due to system maintenance or reasons beyond Security State Bank’s control. Security State Bank does not warrant that Internet Banking will be available at all times. When unavailable, you may use an automated teller machine (“ATM”) or call our office to conduct your transactions. An Internet Banking transaction initiated prior to 2 p.m. CST on a business day is posted to your account the same day. All transfers completed after 2 p.m. CST, or on a non-business day, will be posted the following business day. Fees and Charges There is currently no charge for the use of the Internet Banking Services described in this Agreement. (See FEES paragraph for overdraft and returned checks fees) Restrictions You may not appropriate any information or material that violates any copyright, trademark or other proprietary or intellectual property rights of any person or entity while using Internet Banking. You may not gain, or attempt to gain, access to any Internet Banking server, network or data not specifically permitted to you by Security State Bank or its suppliers, and you must not include any obscene, libelous, scandalous or defamatory content in any communications with Institution or its suppliers. Internet Banking Funds Transfers Provisions As a Security State Bank Internet Banking customer, you may make transfers between your Security State Bank accounts over the Internet. All such transfers are subject to the terms of these Internet Banking Funds Transfer Provisions (the “Transfer Provisions”).

By using the Funds Transfer Service (the “Service”), you agree to these Transfer Provisions:

- “You” and “your(s)” refer to each person (including any business) who applies to use the service and each person who uses the service with the permission of an applicant.
- “Business” means any corporation, partnership, limited liability company, sole proprietorship or any other type of entity maintaining a deposit account for commercial purposes.

You authorize us to debit your designated account(s) for any transactions accomplished through the use of the service (including the transfer of funds from another deposit account for Automatic Maintenance Transfer of Funds). You agree that we may comply with transfer instructions entered by any one person using an authorized User ID and Password, notwithstanding any provision that may be contained in other account documentation purporting to require more than one signature to withdraw funds from the account. If you permit another person to use Security State Bank Internet Banking or give them your User ID or Password, you are responsible for transfers, payments or advances that person makes from the deposit and credit accounts linked to your Service registration even if that person exceeds your authorization.
- Internet Banking Funds Transfer Service Particulars.
- Limits on Transactions. There is a maximum dollar limit on any transfer equal to the available balance in your account plus the available balance or credit balance in any other account.

Under Federal Reserve Board Regulation D, you may make an unlimited number of deposits or transfers into a savings or money market account; however, you may make no more than six transfers or withdrawals out of such an account per monthly statement cycle (not counting transactions made at ATMs or at banking centers). Transfers made by telephone, personal computer or funds automatically transferred from a Savings or Money Market account to another deposit account for Automatic Maintenance Transfer of Funds are counted toward the six total permitted monthly transfers or withdrawals. If you exceed the restrictions more than three times during a six-month period, we will close the savings or money market account and transfer the funds to an eligible transaction account.
- Insufficient Funds to Complete Transfer. If your account does not have sufficient funds to complete a transfer as of the date the transfer is scheduled to be made, the transfer may not be completed, but if we do complete the transfer as an accommodation to you, you are responsible for any overdraft created.
- Correcting or Canceling Your Transfer. You cannot cancel your transfer after it has been entered in Security State Bank Internet Banking and the information transmitted to us. You can correct information about a transfer before you send us the information and you can use Security State Bank Internet Banking to reverse a transaction after it has been entered.

The date and amount of transfers made through Security State Bank Internet Banking will be shown on the Transaction History screen of Security State Bank Internet Banking and will also be shown on your printed statements for the accounts from which and to which the transfer is made.

If your password has been compromised and you tell us within two (2) business days of discovering the loss or misappropriation, you can lose no more than $50. If you do not tell us within the two (2) business day period, you could lose as much as $500 if we could have stopped the use of your accounts had we received notice in a timely manner.

We must hear from you no later than sixty (60) days after we have sent the first statement on which the problem or error appeared (If you notify us verbally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing or electronically within ten (10) business days). If you fail to notify us within the sixty (60) day period, you may not recover any of the money you lost if we can establish that the loss could have been avoided had you notified us on time.

When you report a problem or discrepancy, please: (i) tell us your name and account number; (ii) describe the error or the transaction you are unsure about, and explain why you believe it is in error or what additional information you need; (iii) tell us the dollar amount of any suspected error rror Generally speaking, we will tell you the results of our investigation within ten (10) business days, or twenty (20) business days in the case of point of sale or international transactions, after we hear from you. However, we may take up to forty-five (45) days, or ninety (90) days in the case of point of sale or international transactions, to investigate your complaint or question. In this case, we may provisionally credit your account so that you have use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If you fail to provide your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) business days of a request from us to do so, we reserve the right to not credit your account. If we confirm an error, we will correct your account record within ten (10) business days, or twenty (20) business days in the case of point of sale or international transaction. If we determine that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation within three (3) business days after we conclude our investigation and will debit any interim amounts credited to your account.
