Internet Banking Agreement and Electronic Funds Transfer Disclosure
After reading our agreement and disclosure, please click on the link at the bottom of the page to reach our application.
"We," "us," and "our" means Commercial Bank and Trust Company. "You" and "Your" means each depositor who establishes a NetTeller service with us or who uses or is authorized to use a NetTeller Identification Number and NetTeller Personal Identification Number (PIN) or other means of access, which we establish or approve. The term "NetTeller" refers to our service that allows you to transfer funds, access accounts, obtain information, and perform other transactions over the Internet, including the optional Bill Payment service, by use of a compatible personal computer (with sufficient power and memory) and modem and/or other means which we now authorize or may allow from time to time.
This agreement states the terms and conditions that apply when you use our NetTeller service. These terms and conditions are in addition to those terms and conditions that apply to any accounts you have with us or any other service you obtain from us. You are also required to follow all of our instructions and procedures applicable to the services covered by this agreement. This agreement shall be governed by and interpreted under Tennessee and federal law. We reserve the right to amend or terminate the NetTeller service at any time.
Identification Number and Personal Identification Number
You agree that the NetTeller Identification Number, assigned by us, and the NetTeller Personal Identification Number (PIN), chosen and entered by you, controls the account security. You will be requested to change your PIN the first time you enter the NetTeller service. You can change your PIN at any time through the Option section of the NetTeller service. You are responsible for all transactions you and any authorized user make. If you have given someone your NetTeller Identification Number and PIN and want to terminate that person’s authority, you must change your PIN or take additional steps to prevent further access by such person. You agree to protect the PIN and hold us harmless from unauthorized use.
Notify us immediately if your Identification Number or PIN has been lost or stolen. Failure to notify us immediately could result in the loss of all money accessible by the PIN. If you tell us within two business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your ID and PIN, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone used your ID and PIN without your permission. If you do NOT tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your ID and PIN, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your ID and PIN 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 60 days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 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 hospital stay kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods. Any information downloaded by you to your financial or other software becomes your property and responsibility.
You agree that the provisions of joint account ownership apply to the NetTeller service if the account(s) being accessed is jointly owned. Any account that requires more than one signature cannot be designated for withdrawals.
Internet Banking Transactions
You, or someone you have authorized by giving them your NetTeller Identification Number and Personal Identification Number (even if that person exceeds your authority), can instruct us to perform the following transactions:
1. Make transfers between your qualifying accounts to the extent authorized 2. Obtain information that we make available about your qualifying account
There is no fee to perform these transactions.
Limits on Internet Banking Transactions
You must have enough available money or credit in any account from which you instruct us to make a payment or transfer. If any of your qualifying accounts are savings accounts or money market savings accounts, certain types of withdrawals from those accounts, including payments and transfers, are limited to a total of no more than 6 in any statement cycle or month. The kinds of withdrawals covered by this limitation are those made by means of preauthorized or automatic transfers and payments or telephone agreement. A total of only 3 of these kinds of withdrawals may be made by check, draft, debit card, or similar payment order to third parties. You also agree to the Terms and Disclosures that you received when you opened your deposit account. You can request another one of these at the time you fill out your NetTeller Application.
