ONLINE BANKING AGREEMENT
The first time you access your accounts through Online Banking, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Online Banking Agreement ("Agreement") and acknowledge its receipt and your understanding of its terms.
This Agreement explains the terms and conditions for accessing accounts and conducting transactions at PeopleFirst Bank (“Institution”, “we”, “us” and “our”) via our on-line Online Banking site(s) ("Online Banking"). As used in this Agreement, the terms "you" and "your" refer to each person signing an Online Banking Application.
Benefits of Online Banking
Through Online Banking, you can manage eligible accounts from your home or office on a personal computer. Online Banking can be used to conduct any of the following “On-line Financial Services”:
Obtain balances and transaction histories on all eligible accounts enrolled in Online 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 the applicable account 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 Institution for consumer loans, home equity loans, or certain other eligible loans; and pay bills to any merchant, financial institution or an individual with a U.S. address.
Institution may, from time to time, introduce new On-line Financial 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.

Your password will give you access to Institution accounts via Online Banking. Institution 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 Online 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 Online Banking and the On-line Financial Services. 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).
You can usually access On-line Financial Services seven (7) days a week, twenty-four (24) hours a day. However, at certain times, some or all of Online Banking or On-line Financial Services may not be available due to system maintenance or reasons beyond Institution's control. Institution does not warrant that Online Banking or On-line Financial Services will be available at all times. When unavailable, you may use an automated teller machine (“ATM”) or call our call office to conduct your transactions. An On-line Financial Service transaction initiated prior to 6PM (Central Time) on a business day Monday thru Friday is posted to your account the same day. All transfers completed after 6PM (Central Time) Monday thru Friday 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 On-line banking service described in this Agreement.
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 the Online Banking or On-line Financial Services. You may not gain, or attempt to gain, access to any Online Banking and/or On-line Financial Service server, network or data not specifically permitted to you by Institution or its suppliers, and you must not include any obscene, libelous, scandalous or defamatory content in any communications with Institution or its suppliers.
Accessing the Service
When you complete your internet banking enrollment form, you will be given an opportunity to request a Subscriber I.D. and Password. You will use the User ID and password to access both the Internet Banking product and the Bill Pay product.
Each time you access the Service, you will be asked to enter your User ID and Password. The correct responses will give you access to the Service.
Amendment and Termination
The PeopleFirst Bank has the right to change this Agreement at any time by notice mailed to you at the last address shown for the Account on the PeopleFirst Bank's records, by posting notice in branches of the PeopleFirst Bank, or as otherwise permitted by law.

Financial Institution’s Liability
If we do not complete a transfer to or from your account on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable, for instance: (i) if, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer; (ii) a legal order prohibits withdrawals from your account; (iii) your account is closed or has been frozen; (iv) the transaction would cause your balance to go over the credit limit for any credit arrangement set up to cover overdrafts; (v) you, or anyone you allow, commits fraud or violates any law or regulation in connection with Online Banking or On-line Financial Services; (vi) if the automated teller machine where you are making the transfer does not have enough cash; (vii) if the terminal or system was not working properly and you knew about the breakdown when you started the transfer (viii) you did not provide us with complete and correct payment or transfer information; (ix) you did not properly follow the instructions for use of Online Banking or On-line Financial Services; (x) you knew that Online Banking and/or the On-line Financial Services were not operating properly at the time you initiated the transaction or payment; (xi) there is postal delay; or (xii) if circumstances beyond our control (such as fire, flood or improper transmission or handling by a third party) prevent, hinder or delay the transfer, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken. There may be other exceptions stated in our agreement with you.
You should notify us immediately if you believe anyone has improperly obtained your password or if you suspect any fraudulent activity in your account(s). 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. You should contact us, or the bill payment provider, as applicable, as soon as you identify any errors or discrepancies in your statement or transaction record, or if you need any information about a transaction listed on the statement or transaction record. 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 after the 60 day period if we can establish that the loss could have been avoided had you notified us on time. We may extend these time periods for good reasons such as out-of-town travel or extended hospital stays.
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; and (iv) for a bill payment, tell us the number of the account used to pay the bill, the applicable payee name and account number, the date the payment was sent, the payment amount and the payment reference number. 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. You may request copies of any documents that we use in our investigation.
Preauthorized Payments- Right to stop payment and procedure for doing so
If you had told us in advance to make regular payments out of your account, you can stop any of these payments. You may call or write us at the telephone number or address listed in the disclosure, in time for us to receive your request 3 business days or more before the payment is scheduled to be made. If you call, we may also require you to put your request in writing and get it to us within 14 days after you call. There is a $25 charge for each stop payment.
Electronic Mail (E-mail)
Sending E-mail is a very good way to communicate with Institution regarding your accounts or the On-line Financial Services. However, your e-mail is actually sent via your own software and, as a result, is not secure. Because of this, you should not include confidential information, such as account numbers and balances in any e-mail to Institution. You cannot use e-mail to initiate On-line Financial Service transactions. All such transactions must be initiated using the appropriate functions within the Online Banking site. Institution will not be liable for any errors, omissions, claims, or problems of any kind involving your e-mail.
