Internet Security Information
First National Bank's Internet Banking system is part of a network that utilizes a
comprehensive security strategy to protect your accounts and transactions
conducted over the Internet. In-depth information on many of the techniques
and features employed by the system can be requested by contacting our
Internet Department via e-mail
. In addition to our log-on security,
we use the SSL (secure socket layer) encryption
technology for everything you do in the Internet Banking system. This
technology is automatically activated by your browser when it
attempts to connect to our system and it will
support 128 bit key lengths. Whenever SSL is securing your communications,
the browser will typically indicate the "secure session" by changing the
appearance of a small icon of a padlock at the bottom of the screen
. What this means to you is that your
communications are scrambled from your browser to our servers at all times
so no unauthorized party can read the information as it is carried over the
Internet. In addition, our servers have been
certified by a "Certificate Authority" that will assure you that you are
actually talking to our servers instead of someone pretending to be us.
During your use of the
Internet Banking system, we will pass a "cookie" to your browser for
identifying you during the session. We do not (and can not) use our cookies
to obtain new information about you. A "cookie" is security data that is
given to a browser by a web server that is returned by the browser on
subsequent transmissions to identify the user and encryption information.
When you log onto the system, this cookie enables us to process multiple
transactions during the session without you having to provide your Access ID
and Password for each individual transaction. When you log off, or after ten
minutes of inactivity, the cookie is no longer accepted and must be renewed
by requiring the Password to be reentered. A new cookie is
used for each
session. That way, no one can use the cookie to access your account.
to the security measures described above, there may be other security
notices posted on the web site regarding security issues. It is your
responsibility to read all applicable notices. One of the main security
features guarding the use of the Internet Banking system is the unique
combination of your Access Code and Password. It is important that you keep
your Password secret. We will not be liable for any losses resulting from
you permitting other persons to use your Access Code and Password to access
If you have more questions about our security systems for conducting
transactions safely over the Internet, contact
our Internet Banking
The Internet Banking service requires that the customer complete the
initial registration process. This involves completing a secure online
application to obtain all the information that we will need to enable the
service. The Internet Banking department will verify the information you
submitted for accuracy and authorizations. You will be notified by mail
concerning the status of your account. We do not guarantee that all
applicants will be accepted.
Security is very important to the Internet Banking system. At the time
you request the service, we will select a unique "Access ID" and then choose
a "Password" that will be used to gain access to the system. The "Access ID"
and "Password" will be provided to you by mail following this validation
process. The system will prompt you to change both the "Access ID" and
"Password" upon activation.
prevent unauthorized access and ensure the security of your accounts, we
will end your online session if we have detected no activity for 10 minutes.
This is to protect you in case you accidentally leave your computer
unattended after you logged on. When you return to your computer, you will
be prompted to re-enter your Password and your session will continue where
you left off.
your Password is used to access your accounts, you should treat it as you
would any other sensitive personal data. You should carefully select a
Password that is hard to guess. (We suggest that you stay away from names,
dates, and information that may easily be guessed). Keep your Password safe.
Memorize your Password and never tell it to anyone. You will be required to
change your Password every 90 days. This can be done at any time after you
logged on from the "options" menu.
You may request access to any
account that you are a signer. If you desire services that allow you to
initiate payments or transfers from the account, you will need the required
withdrawal authority over the account to be able to complete the
transaction. By using the service, you agree to maintain one or more
accounts with us and to keep sufficient balances in any account to cover any
transaction and fees that are ultimately approved by or related to the
system. If the accounts added to the service are jointly held or have
multiple signers, you agree that access to the information and all
transactions initiated by the use of your Access Code and Password are
authorized unless we have been notified to cancel the service.
Fees for the Internet Banking
The Internet Banking service
is currently available to our existing personal account customers at no
monthly charge. The Bill Payment feature is an optional service for
personal checking accounts. Currently the Bill Payment feature is available
to existing personal account customers at no monthly charge. Fees are
subject to change without prior notice.
Cancellation of Internet Banking
Your Internet Banking may be
canceled at any time by First National Bank in whole or part without prior
notice due to insufficient funds in one of your accounts or other
circumstances that may create an
unanticipated liability to us. You
will remain responsible for all transactions approved by the system prior to
the cancellation, and for any other fees associated with the service. After
cancellation, service may be reinstated once sufficient funds are available
in your accounts to cover any fees and other pending transfers or debits. In
order to reinstate services, you must call the First National Bank phone
number listed below in the Errors and Questions section.

transfer funds among your accounts. There are no limits to the number of
transfers or bill payments from your Checking Accounts. First National Bank
currently limits the bill-payment service to only Checking Accounts. Please
refer to your account disclosures for transaction limitations on money market

shown in your accounts may include deposits subject to verification by us.

outstanding checks or other withdrawals, payments or charges. A transfer
request may not result in immediate availability because of the time
required to process the request. If you have further questions, contact your
Customer Service Representative.
balances are updated periodically and the system will display the most

Bill Payment Service
The Bill Payment Service
allows you to set up your Payees/Merchants by entering the necessary
information where indicated. We are able to process payments to
payees/merchants that have a US Postal address. The Bill Payment service
will also allow you to see a history of all the payments made from your

available balance in the checking account selected for making the payment.
You can withdraw up to the system's available balance as long as your
account shows sufficient funds to cover your payments. The payment will
normally be charged to your account on the business date that it is
payments may be scheduled for the current business day or any date in the
future at any time, they will only be processed once a day at our cut-off
time, at 1:00PM Central Time on any business day. Anything scheduled on a
non-business day, or after the cut-off time, will not be sent out until the
following business day. Since we must forward the funds and billing
information to the payee, some lead-time for payments is necessary. In
general, the system will attempt to tell you when you can expect the payment
to be received by the payee. The estimated payment arrival date is typically
shown on the check where you schedule the payment date below the amount
line. (Our system assumes the payee/merchant will promptly process the
payment on the business day it is received. Any delays caused by the
payee/merchant would result in additional days before the payment would show
on their records.) By using this service, you authorize us, and any
third-party payment-processing agent we may use, to choose whatever method
we feel is the most effective method to process your transaction.
frames generally will be determined by the way the payment is sent to the
payee. If we have to send a paper check in the US Postal system, we
typically suggest sufficient time as five (5) business days prior to the
payee receiving the payment for processing at their address. If the payee
accepts the payment electronically, we suggest sufficient time as three (3)
business days prior to the payee receiving the payment.
Our Liability for Incomplete
It is our responsibility to
process all bill payments properly initiated through the Internet Banking
system in accordance with this Agreement. We will be liable for damages, as
defined in this Agreement, where the system caused a payment delay or failed

business day following the date your account was charged for the payment.
Transfers will be processed within three business days of the completed
transfer transaction. We will not be liable if any of the following occurs:
