What This Agreement Covers

This Agreement between you and First Heritage Bank governs the use of Online Banking services (“Services”). The Services permit First Heritage Bank customers (consumers, sole proprietors and other business customers) to perform a number of banking functions on accounts linked to the service through the use of a personal computer. Unless indicated otherwise by the context, “linked accounts” refers to all of your accounts with First Heritage Bank that you have linked to Online Banking.

Throughout this Agreement, the words “the Bank,” “we,” “us,” or “our” mean, collectively, First Heritage Bank, its subsidiaries and affiliates (including, without limitation, variations of bank name) and all of their respective successors or assigns. “You” or “your” means each owner of the Account or Accounts which will be accessible through the Service. Whenever “you” refers to more than one person with respect to any such account or relationship, the obligations and agreements applicable to you under this Agreement shall be deemed to be joint and several.

Accepting the Agreement

When you use any of the Services described in this Agreement, or authorize others to use them, you agree to the terms and conditions of the entire Agreement.

Relation to Other Agreements

Your use of the Services may also be affected by the other agreements between us for your linked accounts. When you link an account to Online Banking services, you do not change the agreements you already have with us for that account. You should review those agreements for any applicable fees, for limitations on the number of transactions you can make, and for other restrictions that might impact your use of an account with Online Banking services. If you choose to use any of our optional online services, these services will be offered subject to a separate agreement. Optional online services may include e-statements, alerts, mobile banking, mobile deposit, personal financial management and bill pay.

Changes to Agreement

We may offer additional Online Banking services and features in the future. Any such added Online Banking service or feature will be governed by this Agreement and by any terms and conditions provided to you at the time the new service or feature is added or at the time of enrollment for the feature or service. We reserve the right to amend these terms and modify or change the Online Banking Services without notice, except as may be required by law.

Cancellation of Online Banking Services

Your Online Banking services remain in effect until they are terminated by you or the Bank. You may cancel your service at any time by notifying us of your intent to cancel in writing, through Online Banking secure message, or by calling Online Banking customer service at 785-857-3341. This cancellation applies to your Online Banking services and does not close your First Heritage Bank accounts. We recommend that you cancel any scheduled payments prior to notifying us that you are discontinuing the service.

We may terminate your participation in Online Banking services for any reason, including inactivity, at any time. We will try to notify you in advance, be we are not obliged to do so.

If you choose to cancel your Online Banking services, any scheduled transfers will continue until you notify us to cancel these transfers. If you use the Online Bill Pay services, a termination of your Online Banking service will also terminate your Online Bill Pay service. Any unprocessed payments using the Online Bill Pay service will be canceled. We recommend that you cancel any scheduled payment prior to notifying us that you are discontinuing the Online Banking service.

Use of External E-mail Address

With Online Banking services, we may send messages to your external e-mail address and notify you that responses to your payment inquiries or customer service inquiries are available, or as otherwise described within the Online Banking services. We cannot act on instructions sent by you from an external e-mail address. You should use Online Banking secure messages to send instructions to the Bank. If, for any reason, your external e-mail address changes or becomes disabled, please contact the Bank immediately so that we can continue to provide you with automated messages. You may notify us of any changes to your external e-mail address through the User Settings menu within the Online Banking service.

Transfers From Savings and Money Market Deposit Accounts

Federal regulations and the deposit agreement impose limits on the number of certain types of withdrawals and transfers you can make each month from a savings and money market deposit account. If you exceed these limits on more than an occasional basis, we are required to convert your account to another type of account and your account may no longer earn interest.

Each transfer or payment through the Online Banking services from your savings or money market deposit account is counted as one of the limited transfers you are permitted each statement period. We recommend that you not use a savings or money market deposit account as your bill payment account because of these limits on transfers. Please review the deposit agreement for your account for more information.

Limitation of Liability for Online Banking Transactions

When you give someone your User ID and password, you are authorizing that person to use your service, and you are responsible for all transactions that person performs while using your service. All transactions that person performs, even those transactions you did not intend or want performed, are authorized transactions. If you notify us that the person is no longer authorized, then only transactions that person performs after the time you notify us are considered unauthorized.

Transactions that you or someone acting with you initiates with fraudulent intent are also authorized transactions.

For your protection, sign off after every Online Banking session and close your browser to ensure confidentiality.

Our Liability for Failure to Complete Transactions

For Consumer Accounts Only [see below for Business Accounts (including Trusts and Sole Proprietors)]: If we do not complete a transaction 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, we will not be liable for any special, consequential, incidental or punitive losses, damages, or expenses in connection with this agreement or the service, even if we have knowledge of the possibility of the loss, unless such liability is mandated by law or regulation. We will not be liable for any act, failure to act or delay in acting, if it is caused, in whole or in part, by any cause beyond our reasonable control. For instance, we will not be liable:

Protecting Your Password and Security Procedures

You agree that we may send notices and other communications, including password confirmations, to the current address shown in our records, whether or not that address includes a designation for delivery to the attention of any particular individual. You further agree that the Bank will not be responsible or liable to you in any way if information is intercepted by an unauthorized person, either in transit or at your place of business. You agree to: 1) keep your password secure and strictly confidential; 2) immediately notify us and select a new password if you believe your password may have become known to any other person. The Bank will have no liability to you for any unauthorized payment or transfer made using your password that occurs before you have notified us of possible unauthorized use and we have had a reasonable opportunity to act on that notice. We may suspend or cancel your password even without receiving such notice from you, if we suspect your password is being used in an unauthorized or fraudulent manner.

Acknowledgment of Commercially Reasonable Security Procedures

By using Online Banking, you acknowledge and agree that this Agreement sets forth security procedures for online banking transactions that are commercially reasonable. You agree to be bound by instructions, whether authorized or unauthorized, which we implement in compliance with these procedures, unless you have given us prior notice of possible unauthorized use as described above (and we had a reasonable opportunity to act on such notice).

Limitation of Bank’s Liability

If we fail or delay in making a payment or transfer pursuant to you instructions, or if we make a payment or transfer in an erroneous amount that is less than the amount per your instructions, unless otherwise required by law, our liability shall be limited to interest on the amount that we failed to timely pay or transfer, calculated from the date on which the payment or transfer was to be made until the date it was actually made or you canceled the instructions. We may pay such interest either to you or the intended recipient of the payment or transfer, but in no event will we be liable to both parties, and our payment to either party will fully discharge any obligation to the other. If we make a payment or transfer in an erroneous amount that exceeds the amount per your instructions, or if we permit an unauthorized payment or transfer after we have had a reasonable time to act on a notice from you of possible unauthorized use as described above, unless otherwise required by law, our liability will be limited to a refund of the amount erroneously paid or transferred, plus interest thereon from the date of the payment or transfer to the date of the refund, but in no event to exceed 60 days’ interest. If we become liable to you for interest compensation under this Agreement or applicable law, such interest shall be calculated based on the average federal funds rate at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City for each day interest is due, computed on the basis of a 360-day year. Unless otherwise required by law, in no event will the Bank be liable to you for special, indirect or consequential damages including, without limitation, lost profits or attorney’s fees, even if we are advised in advance of the possibility or such damages.
