Fees for Online Banking Service
National Bank offers the benefits and convenience of its Online Banking and Bill Pay services to you free of charge. However, in order to cover expenses charged to us by our Bill Pay vendor, when a Bill Payment is returned for nonsufficient funds to our Bill Pay vendor, a $20.00 per item fee will be assessed against your checking account. This will be in addition to the customary charge of $35.00 for the nonsufficient funds handling charge.
Other normal fees and charges will be assessed at the rates published in National Bank’s fee schedule.
These fees are subject to change. National Bank will notify you in writing regarding any fee changes at least thirty (30) days in advance of the effective date of these changes.
Access to Online Banking
You may access the National Bank Online Banking service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To access the Online Banking service, you must have an account at National Bank, access to Internet service, an email address, an Access ID and a Password. Online Banking can only be used to access National Bank accounts in which you are designated as an account owner or signer. Access to your accounts through Online Banking will be based upon the identification of users and authority levels specified in your Account Agreement. If the accounts are jointly held, you agree that access to the information and all transactions initiated by the use of your Access ID and Password are authorized unless we have been notified to cancel the service. We undertake no obligation to monitor transactions through Online Banking or Bill Pay to determine that they are made on behalf of the accountholder.
The National Bank website requires a personal computer with access to the Internet. Customers will need a browser such as Internet Explorer 10.0 (or later) from Microsoft Corporation, with 128-bit encryption. The browser must be configured to accept cookies. For the best view, set the screen resolution to 1024 X 768 pixels.
All electronic communications that we receive from you on the National Bank website will be deemed valid, authentic, and binding obligations. You agree that these electronic communications will be the same as your written and signed paper communications, and shall be deemed for all purposes to have been signed and to constitute an original when printed from electronic files or records established and maintained in the normal course of business. You agree that electronic copies of communications are valid and you will not contest the validity of transactions.
Use of Your Access ID and Password
You agree to keep your Access ID and Password confidential to prevent unauthorized access to your account. We recommend that you memorize your Access ID and Password. You agree to not give your Access ID and Password to any unauthorized persons. Your password should not be associated with any commonly known personal identification, such as social security numbers, address, date of birth, or names of children, and should not be written down. In addition, you must make sure that no one is physically watching when you enter your password. If you are logged into the service, be sure to log off of the service and exit the browser when you leave the computer unattended. Your session will be automatically terminated after 20-minutes of inactivity. You agree to assume responsibility for all transactions up to the limits allowed by applicable law.
Password Guidelines: Passwords are the key to each Customer having a secure passage to their financial records Passwords are created by the Customer and temporary passwords issued by the financial institution are issued in an expired state, so the Customer will be required to change any passwords provided by National Bank.
* National Bank controls the minimum and maximum length of passwords. The shortest minimum allowed is 8 characters, and the longest maximum is 17 characters.
* We require passwords to contain at least one (1) upper case letter, one (1) lower case letter, one (1) symbol, and one (1) numeric character.
*Password cannot contain any variation of the word “Fiserv”.
*Password cannot contain any variation of the word “password”.
*Password cannot contain any variation of the Access ID.
* The Financial Institution DOES NOT have access to the Customer’s personal password. The Customer Assistance Call Center of National Bank has the ability to issue a new password in the event that a Customer has forgotten their current password or has been locked out due to three (3) invalid login attempts. As with the initial password, any password issued by the financial institution must be changed by the Customer at the next login.
Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your password has been lost, stolen or compromised. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your losses down. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum limit from an overdraft line of credit or your overdraft privilege). If you tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone used your password without your permission.
If you do NOT tell us within two business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your password, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your password without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.00.
Also, if your statement shows transfers or bill payments 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 a timely manner.
If a good reason (such as a long trip or hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.
Contact us in the event of unauthorized transfer or bill payment. If you believe your password has been lost or stolen, that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, or that someone has made a bill payment from your account without your permission, call us immediately.

We must hear from you no later than sixty (60) days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.
1. Tell us your name and account number (if any).

We will determine whether an error occurred within 10 business days (20 business days if the transfer or bill payment involved a new account) after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days (90 days if the transfer or bill payment involved a new account) to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days (20 business days if the transfer or bill payment involved a new account) 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. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 business days, we may not credit your account. Your account is considered a new account for the first 30 days after the first deposit is made, unless you already have an established account with us before this account is opened.
We will tell you the results within three business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.

Stop Payment Against a Check or Other Item.
A stop payment request against a check or other item payable from your Account will be effective if we receive the order at such time and in such manner as to afford us a reasonable opportunity to act upon the order. A stop payment order against a check or other item payable from your Account is effective for six (6) months, but it lapses after fourteen (14) calendar days if the original order was oral and was not confirmed in writing within that period. A stop payment order against a check or other item payable from your Account may be renewed for additional six (6) month periods if renewed during a period within which the stop payment order is effective.
Stop Payment Against an ACH/EFT.
A stop payment order against an ACH/EFT may be honored if received at least three (3) banking days before the scheduled date of the transfer. If we honor a stop payment request against an ACH/EFT received on or within three (3) banking days of the scheduled transfer, we do so without any liability or responsibility to any party having any interest in the entry. A stop payment order against an ACH/EFT is effective until the earlier of: (i) you withdraw the stop payment order, or (ii) the debit entry is returned, or, where a stop payment order is applied to more than one debit entry under a specific authorization involving a specific party, all such debit entries are returned. We may require you to provide us written confirmation of a verbal stop order request against an ACH/EFT within fourteen (14) calendar days. Additionally, if you request us to stop all future payments pursuant to a specific ACH/EFT authorization involving a particular party, we may require you to confirm in writing that you have revoked such authorization.
All stop payment order requests will require you to provide the date, the amount, and the number of the item or authorization, together with the name of the payee. If you give us incorrect information, we will not be liable for failing to stop payment on the item or authorization. Our acceptance of a stop payment order will not constitute a representation that the item or authorization has not already been paid or that we have a reasonable opportunity to act upon the order. You may not stop payment on an official, certified, cashier's, or teller's check issued by us, or request us to stop payment if we have otherwise become accountable for the item or authorization. In addition, you may not stop payment on checks governed by a separate agreement, such as a check guaranty agreement. Further you may not stop payment on an item or authorization after acceptance of the same by us.
You may make the following types of funds transfers:
* Transfer funds from checking to checking.
* Transfer funds from checking to savings.
* Transfer funds from savings to savings.
* Transfer funds from savings to checking.
* Make payments from checking to loan accounts or overdraft protection demand deposit loan accounts.
* Make payments from savings to loan accounts or overdraft protection demand deposit loan accounts.

These limitations are defined by federal regulations, and we are required to take action if you exceed the number of transfers or withdrawals allowed.
Transfers and payments made after 5:00 p.m. will not be credited until the next business day.
You will be provided a confirmation number with each transfer. Please write down this number when you receive it. It helps us resolve any questions you may have concerning your transactions.
