This includes transfers by phone, fax, wire and cable, audio response, overdraft transfers to checking and Internet instruction. No more than three (3) of the six (6) transfers may be made by check, draft or debit card, or similar order to a third party.

We will not be required to complete such a transaction, but if we do, you agree to pay us the excess amount or improperly withdrawn amount or transferred amount immediately upon request. Also, we will refuse to complete your Home Banking transactions if we have canceled your Home Banking access, or we cannot complete the transaction for security reasons.

If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within ten (10) business days (twenty  days if the complaint or error involves a transaction to or from an account within thirty  days after the first deposit to the account was made) for the amount you think is in error so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation.

LIABILITY FOR UNAUTHORIZED TRANSACTIONS.
You will be liable for unauthorized access to accounts via Home Banking to the extent allowed by applicable federal and state law.

Telephoning is the best way of minimizing your liability. You could lose all the money in your accounts, plus your maximum overdraft line-of-credit. If you tell us within two (2) business days of the loss, theft, or unauthorized access, you can lose no more than fifty dollar ($50.00) if someone accessed your account without your permission. If you do NOT tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss, theft, or unauthorized access, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from accessing your account without permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as five hundred dollars ($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 money you lost after the sixty (60) days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.
