Your Rights and Liabilities
Security of your transactions is important to us. Use of the Internet Banking services will therefore require a password. If you lose or forget your password, please call 815-235-2711 during normal business hours. We will accept as authentic any instructions given to us through the use of your password. You agree to keep your password secret and to notify us immediately if your password is lost or stolen or if you believe someone else has discovered your password. You agree that if you give your password to someone else, you are authorizing them to act on your behalf, and we may accept any instructions they give us to make transfers or otherwise use the Internet Banking services. We may be liable for certain security breaches to the extent required by applicable law and regulation. We do not assume any other liability or otherwise guarantee the security of information in transit to or from our facilities. Please note that we reserve the right to (1) monitor and/or record all communications and activity related to the Internet Banking services; and (2) require verification of all requested transfers in the manner we deem appropriate before making the transfer (which may include written verification by you).
You agree that our records will be final and conclusive as to all questions concerning whether or not your password was used in connection with a particular transaction.
If any unauthorized use of your password occurs you agree to (1) cooperate with us and appropriate law enforcement authorities in identifying and prosecuting the perpetrator; and (2) provide reasonable assistance requested by us in recovering any unauthorized transfer of funds.
Notify us immediately if you believe your password has been lost or stolen. Telephoning is the best way to keep your possible losses down. You could lose all of the money in your account (plus your maximum line of credit). If you tell us within two (2) business days you can lose no more than $50.00. If you do NOT tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your password, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your password without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.00. Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, 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 funds you lost after the 60 days if we can prove that we could have prevented someone from taking the funds if you had told us in time. If you believe your password has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, call 815-235-2711 during normal business hours.
WE CANNOT ACCEPT NOTIFICATION OF LOST OR STOLEN PASSWORDS OR UNAUTHORIZED TRANSFERS VIA E-MAIL
