What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents.

Commercial State Bank
INTERNET BANKING AGREEMENT & ELECTRONIC FUND TRANSFERS
 

Type of Transfers
You may access your accounts by computer using your password and your social security number/account number to: transfer funds between your checking and savings accounts � make loan payments from checking and savings accounts � get information about checking and savings account balances, deposits and withdrawals in the last statement cycle � get account balance of certificates of deposit and loans.

Limitations on Frequency of Transfers
Transfers from a savings or money market account to another account or to third parties by preauthorized, automatic, telephone, or computer transfers are subject to fees based on your type of account.  For security reasons there are other limits on the number of transfers you can make by computer.

LIABILITY FOR FAILURE TO COMPLETE TRANSACTION
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 as provided by law. However, there are some exceptions. We will NOT be liable, for instance:
            If through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer.
            If the transfer would result in your exceeding the credit limit on your line of credit, if you have one.
            If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood, computer or machine breakdown, or failure
            or interruption of communications facilities) prevent the transfer, despite reasonable precautions
            we have taken.
            If we have terminated our Agreement with you.
            If we receive inaccurate or incomplete information needed to complete a transaction.
            In the case of preauthorized transfers, we will not be liable where there is a breakdown of the
            system which would normally handle the transfer.
            If the funds in the account are subject to legal action preventing a transfer to or from your account.
There may be other exceptions provided by applicable law.

Periodic Statements
You will get a monthly account statement from us for your checking accounts.
You will get a quarterly account statement from us for your savings accounts.

Your Rights and Liabilities
Security of your transactions is important to us. Use of the Internet Banking services will therefore require a PIN or password. If you lose or forget your PIN or password, please call 972-449-2283 during normal business hours.  We will accept as authentic any instructions given to us through the use of your password or PIN. You agree to keep your PIN and password secret and to notify us immediately if your PIN or Password is lost or stolen or if you believe someone else has discovered your PIN or password. You agree that if you give your PIN or 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. You may change your password at any time by using TeleWeb. 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 PIN or password was used in connection with a particular transaction.
If any unauthorized use of your PIN or 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 PIN or 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 PIN or password, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your PIN or 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 PIN or password has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, call 972-449-2283 during normal business hours.

If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days (90 days for new accounts or point-of-sale or foreign-initiated transfers) to investigate your complaint or question.
