is an online payment system that provides you with information about your credit card account, including transaction activity, and permits you to make one-time payments or set up recurring automatic payments of your credit card bill. Payments made through National Bank Cards Online
result in electronic funds transfers from the depository account you choose and establish on file. Electronic transfers from consumer accounts are covered by Regulation E, which may limit your liability for unauthorized transfers where you give timely notice.
Access to National Bank Cards Online
is through a unique name known as your User ID and a password that you create when you sign up. You should never share this information and should keep it confidential and stored in a secure location. We use this information to authenticate your identity when you log on to the site to prevent unauthorized access. We will never email you and ask you for your user ID, password or other personal information. We will email you upon setup to your email address on file with a confirmation code for you to complete your sign on process.
We will capture your IP Address during the enrollment process as well as other attributes to create a device fingerprint. We will allow up to 5 different IP addresses. This enhanced security feature is offered to protect the user and all of your security information. We reserve the right to restrict certain IP addresses to prevent fraud.
To protect the information you provide through the site, we use strong encryption and secure socket layering. Encryption refers to the practice of scrambling data so unauthorized parties cannot decipher it and obtain your personal information. We require that your browser use 128 bit encryption. We automatically disconnect you after a period of inactivity. We also limit the type of transfers you may make through the site. You may only pay your credit card bill through the site and cannot make transfers to any other account.
You too can mitigate the risk or unauthorized access to your accounts by doing the following:
- Create strong and different passwords from those used for other online activity.
- Change your passwords periodically.
- Avoid using easily available information such as your date of birth, first or last name only, last 4 digits of your social security number. Keep passwords secure and never store them in a location where others can view them. Never use “Remember Me” to store user IDs and passwords on public computers.
- For business accounts, periodically perform a risk assessment and evaluate controls in place to detect and prevent unauthorized or fraudulent charges and payments.
- Phishing scams send fraudulent emails or pop up messages that appear to come from legitimate sources. They may ask you to verify personal information to steal your log-in password and credentials. Never provide personal information or account information through email.
- Maintain a secure session and detect potentially fraudulent transactions, update your security software and run a system scan weekly.
- Set up text message alerts if offered with your payment/deposit holding financial institution and/or your card account financial institution.
