VI. Use of Your Security Password / Browser Cookies

 

You are responsible for keeping your password and Online Account information confidential.  In order to protect yourself against fraud, you should adhere to the following guidelines.

 

If you believe your password has been lost or stolen, or if you suspect any fraudulent activity on your account, call the Bank immediately at 815-795-3900 between the hours of 8:00am – 5:00pm Monday through Friday.  Telephoning the Bank is the best way of minimizing your losses and liability. (See; Section XII)

 

The use of Online Banking requires that cookies be enabled on your web browser.  This requirement is aimed to achieve an additional layer of security for your online banking.  Marseilles Bank’s Multifactor Authentication is in the form of a cookie placed in the web browser.  This cookie remembers whether or not the computer you are using is registered with your online banking account.  If the Online Banking session does not find the cookie, the user then needs to enter a passcode that is sent either by phone or email.  This helps to verify the user with an additional layer of protection.

 

 

VII. Electronic Mail (E-mail)

If you send the Bank an e-mail message, the Bank will be deemed to have received it on the following business day.  You should not rely on e-mail if you need to report an unauthorized transaction from one of your accounts or if you need to stop a payment that is scheduled to occur.

 

 

VIII. Linked Accounts

All accounts with the Bank that you enroll in a service will be linked by the tax identification numbers of the persons authorized to access the account.  The linked accounts will appear together without regard to the ownership of the accounts.  For example, if an authorized user of linked account accesses the Service, that authorized user will be able to view and access at a single time any consumer accounts for which the person is a co-owner.

 

IX. Business Accounts

If you are a business, any authorized user of your business is authorized on such terms, conditions, and agreements as we may require to:

XI. Electronic Fund Transfer Provisions for Customers

A.  Applicability.  These provisions are only applicable to online electronic fund transfers that credit or debit a consumer’s checking, savings or other asset account and are subject to the Federal Reserve Board’s Regulation E an (“EFT”).  When applicable, the Bank may rely on any exceptions to these provisions that are contained in Regulation E.  All terms that are not defined in this Agreement but which are defined in Regulation E shall have the same meaning when used in this section.

           

B.  Your Liability.  The following determines your liability for any unauthorized EFT or any series of related unauthorized EFT’s:

1.  If you notify the Bank within two(2) business days after your password was lost or stolen, your liability will not exceed $50.00 or the amount of the unauthorized EFTs that occur before notification, whichever is less

           

2.  If you fail to notify the Bank within two (2) business days after your password was lost or stolen, your liability will not exceed the lesser of $500.00 or the total of:

·         $50.00 or the amount of unauthorized EFTs that occur within the two(2) business days; and

·         The total of unauthorized EFTs which occur during the two(2) days before notification to the Bank, provided the Bank establishes that these EFTs would not have occurred had the Bank been notified within that two-day period.

 

3.  You must report an unauthorized EFT that appears on your periodic statement, no later than 60 days of transmittal of the statement to avoid liability for subsequent transfers.  If you fail to do so, your liability will not exceed the amount of the unauthorized EFTs that occurred after the close of the 60-day period and before notice to the Bank and the Bank establishes they would not have occurred had you notified the Bank within the 60-day period.  You may also be liable for the amounts as described in sections 1 and 2 above.

 

4.  If the report is made orally, we will require that you send the complaint or question in writing within 20 business days.  We will notify you with the results of the investigation within 10 business days and will correct any error promptly.  If more time is needed, however, we may take up to 45 days to investigate a complaint or question.  If this occurs, we will credit your account within 10 business days for the amount you think is in error.  This will allow you to use the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation.  If your complaint or question is not received in writing within 10 business days, we may not credit your account until the investigation is completed.  If an alleged error involves an electronic fund transfer outside a state or territory or possession of the United States, the applicable time periods for action by us are 20 business days (instead of 10) and 90 calendar days (instead of 45).  If we determine that no error occurred, we will send you a written explanation within three business days after the investigation is complete.  You may request copies of the documents that were used in the investigation.

 

5.  You may notify the Bank by telephone, writing, or by e-mail using the Secure Email form provided in our Online Banking site.  Notification by general e-mail to report an unauthorized transaction is not secure and therefore not advised.

           

C.  Telephone Numbers and Addresses.  In case of errors or questions regarding an Online Banking transaction, call 815-795-3900 or write us at:

Marseilles Bank may change any fee for use of the Service at any time pursuant to the section titled "Acceptance of these Terms" above. You authorize Marseilles Bank to deduct any such fees from any Marseilles Bank account in your name.

 

5.      Eligible items. You agree to scan and deposit only "checks" as that term is defined in Federal Reserve Regulation CC ("Reg. CC"). When the image of the check transmitted to Demo Bank is converted to an Image Replacement Document for later presentment and collection, it shall thereafter be deemed an "item" within the meaning of Articles 3 and 4 of the Uniform Commercial Code.

 

You agree that you will not scan and deposit any of the following types of checks or other items which shall be considered ineligible items:

 

·         Checks payable to any person or entity other than the person or entity that owns the account that the check is being deposited into;

·         Checks containing an alteration on the front of the check or an item that you otherwise know or suspect, or should know or suspect, as fraudulent or otherwise not authorized by the owner of the account on which the check is drawn;

Any items not endorsed in compliance with this provision will be rejected for deposit through the Services.

 

7.      Receipt of Items. We reserve the right to reject any item transmitted through the Services, at our discretion, without liability to you. We are not responsible for items we do not receive or for images that are dropped during transmission. An image of an item shall be deemed received when you receive a confirmation from Marseilles Bank that we have received the image. Receipt of such confirmation does not mean that the transmission was error free, complete or will be considered a deposit and credited to your account. We further reserve the right to charge back to your account at any time any item that we subsequently determine was not an eligible item. You agree that the Bank is not liable for any loss, costs, or fees you may incur as a result of our chargeback of an ineligible item.

 

8.      Availability of Funds. You agree that items transmitted using the Services are not subject to the funds availability requirements of Federal Reserve Board Regulation CC. In general, if an image of an item you transmit through the Service is received and accepted before 3:00 pm Central Time on a business day that we are open, we consider that day to be the day of your deposit. Otherwise, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day we are open. Funds deposited using the Services will generally be made available no later than two business days from the day of deposit. Marseilles Bank, in its sole discretion, may make such funds available sooner or may extend the hold period beyond two business days based on such factors as credit worthiness, the length and extent of your relationship with us, transaction and experience information and such other factors as Marseilles Bank, in its sole discretion, deems relevant.

 

9.      Disposal of Transmitted Items. Upon your receipt of a confirmation from Marseilles Bank that we have received an image that you have transmitted, you agree to retain the check for at least 30 calendar days from the date of the image transmission. After 30 days, you agree to destroy the check that you transmitted as an image, mark it "VOID", or otherwise render it incapable of further transmission, deposit, negotiation, or presentment. During the time the retained check is available, you agree to promptly provide it to Marseilles Bank upon request.

 

10.  Deposit Limits. We may establish limits on the dollar amount and/or number of items or deposits from time to time. If you attempt to initiate a deposit in excess of these limits, we may reject your deposit. If we permit you to make a deposit in excess of these limits, such deposit will still be subject to the terms of this Agreement, and we will not be obligated to allow such deposit at other times. Our current limits are as follows:

 

·         The daily dollar limit for deposits is $5000.00 per business day for consumer accounts;

·         The daily number of deposits allowed for all consumer accounts is 5.

 

Marseilles Bank may change these limits at any time, at its sole discretion.

 

11.  Presentment. The manner in which the items are cleared, presented for payment, and collected shall be in Marseilles Bank's sole discretion, subject to the terms of your account.

 

12.  Errors. You agree to notify Marseilles Bank of any suspected errors regarding items deposited through the Services right away and, in no event, later than 30 days after the applicable Marseilles Bank account statement is sent. Unless you notify Marseilles Bank within 30 days, such statement regarding all deposits made through the Services shall be deemed correct, and you are prohibited from bringing a claim against Marseilles Bank for such alleged error.

 

13.  Errors in Transmission. By using the Services you accept the risk that an item may be intercepted or misdirected during transmission. Marseilles Bank bears no liability to you or others for any such intercepted or misdirected items or information disclosed through such errors.

 

14.  Image Quality. The image of an item transmitted to Marseilles Bank using the Services must be legible, as determined by the sole discretion of Marseilles Bank. Without limiting the foregoing, the image quality of the item must comply with the requirements established from time to time by Marseilles Bank, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Board, the Check 21 Act, Reg. CC, Reg. J, applicable state laws, or any other regulatory agency, clearinghouse, or association.

In the event that any provision of this Agreement shall be deemed to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable to any extent, the remainder of the Agreement shall not be impaired or otherwise affected and shall continue to be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
