The Bank will provide online banking instructions describing how to use the Online Banking Service or Bill Pay Service. To gain access to this Service you will use your login name and your password.

Hours of Operation

The Services are generally available 24 hours-a-day, 7 days a week, except during special maintenance and upgrade periods.

Your Rights and Liabilities

Security of your personal information, account information and your transactions is important to us. Use of the Internet Banking Services will therefore require a Login Name and Password. No employee of FirstOak Bank will have access to your Login Name or Password so an employee should ever ask you for you to disclose or verify your Login Name or Password. If you lose or forget your Login Name or Password, please call the bank at any of the numbers provided above during regular business hours.

You agree to keep your Login Name and Password secret and to notify us immediately if your Login Name or Password is lost or stolen or if you believe someone else has discovered your Login Name or Password. You agree that if you give your Login Name and/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. 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 Login Name or Password was used in connection with a particular transaction.

If any unauthorized use of your Login Name 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 Login Name or Password has been lost or stolen. Contacting us by telephone during regular business hours is the best way to keep your possible losses down. You could lose all of the money in your account. If you tell us within two business days, you can lose no more than $50.00. If you DO NOT tell us within two business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Login Name or Password, and we can prove that we could have stopped someone from using your Login Name or Password without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.00. Also, if you statement shows transfer 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 Login Name or Password has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, contact the Bank at the numbers provided above.


Types of Transfers

Limitations on Types of Transfers
