ONLINE BANKING AGREEMENT & DISCLOSURE
By accessing your accounts through Online Banking, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Online Banking Disclosure & Agreement ("Agreement"). By clicking “Accept” to the First Time Disclaimer on your first login, you acknowledge your receipt and understanding of its terms, and you agree to receive notices regarding your account via electronic mail.
About this Agreement
This Online Banking Disclosure and Agreement (“the Agreement”) governs the use of the Online Banking service (“Online Banking”) offered by Bank of the Pacific (“the Bank”). Online Banking allows the Bank customers to perform a number of banking functions through the use of a personal computer and the Internet. When you use any of the Online Banking services described in this Agreement, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement and its subsequent amendments. The Bank may, from time to time, introduce new Online Banking services. By using those services when they become available, you agree to be bound by the terms contained in this Agreement, and its subsequent amendments.
Your use of the Online Banking service may also be affected by other agreements between us including, but not limited to, the Deposit Agreement and Disclosure Statement. Your use of the Online Banking service does not change any other agreement you may already have with us. You should review those agreements for any applicable fees, for limitations on the number of transfers you can make, and for other restrictions, which might impact the use of your account(s) with the Online Banking service.
Using Online Banking
In order to use the Online Banking service, you must have at least one account with the Bank. To access your account(s) via the Internet, you must have World Wide Web access via a Secure Internet Service Provider. Your Internet browser must be configured for SSL 128 bit encryption. Most of the latest browser versions have SSL 128 bit built in. If you are using an older browser or receive an error message when you attempt to login, you may need to upgrade your browser software. The latest versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator can be found at http://www.microsoft.com or http://www.netscape.com. If you are using AOL, information on how to upgrade your software can be found on AOL.
During enrollment you will have the opportunity to choose a desired Login ID and a temporary password; however the Login ID must be unique to our system. If none is chosen then the bank will assign you a Login ID. Your account access will be available within one business day of the bank receiving your enrollment form. Your Login ID, which cannot be used without your Password, will provide you with access to all of the accounts you have requested and may include all accounts that you are an owner/signer, whether individual or jointly held, as well as any new account you may open in the future.
You agree that we are entitled to act upon instructions received through the Online Banking service under your Password and without inquiring into the identity of the person using that Password. However, you agree that you will not, under any circumstances, disclose your Password by telephone or any other means to any person. You acknowledge that no person from the Bank will ever ask for your Password and that Bank employees do not need and should not ask for your Password. You are liable for all transactions made by the authorized use of your Password and agree that, if you give your Password to anyone, you do so at your own risk since anyone with your Password will have access to your accounts. You may change your Password at any time using our Online Banking site. At any time, you may ask us to disable your Password.
For joint accounts, each person will have a separate Login ID and Password. Each person on a joint account will be liable for all transactions that are made on that account. Each person on a joint account authorizes all transactions made by any other person(s) on the account. Each person on a joint account agrees to be liable for the actions of the other person(s) on the account.

The Bill Payment service allows you to schedule bill payments through Online Banking. The Bank does not provide the service directly. Instead, The Bank entered into an agreement with a bill payment provider to provide the bill payment services directly to you. Subject to any limitations on usage imposed by regulators or The Bank, you may arrange, at your option, for the payment of your current, future and recurring bills from a checking account or a money market checking account. You may pay any merchant or individual approved by the bill payment provider; however, the amount of any individual payment may not exceed $99,999.99. While payments are initiated by you electronically, they are ultimately paid via an automated clearing house (ACH) network or by a paper check. Payments delivered over an ACH network are governed by the rules and performance standards of that network. Funds for bill payments will be withdrawn from your account on the applicable Payment Date. However, due to mail delivery, checks, on occasion, have cleared a customer’s account a day or two before the payment date.
Limitations on Transfers and Payments
When you request a transfer between accounts or make a payment, you authorize us to withdraw the necessary funds from your designated account. You agree that you will instruct us to make a withdrawal only when a sufficient balance is available in your account at the time of withdrawal. If you do not have a sufficient balance, we may either complete the transfer or payment – creating an overdraft – or refuse to complete the transfer or payment. We reserve the right to impose a non-sufficient funds (NSF) fee.
Transfers from Savings or Money Market Deposit Accounts
Federal regulations limit the number of preauthorized electronic fund transfers and telephone transfers, including transfers you request using Online Banking, from money market deposit and savings accounts. You are limited to six pre-authorized electronic fund transfers and telephone transfers, checks and point-of-sale transactions per statement period. Each transfer or payment you request through Online Banking from your money market deposit or savings account is counted as one of the six limited transfers you’re permitted each statement period. However, payments to your loans at the Bank are not counted toward this limit.
Security & Protecting Your Account.
We are strongly committed to protecting the security and confidentiality of our customers’ account information. We use several techniques to help secure our Online Banking service, including the following:
- You can only access Online Banking with certain browsers that have a high security standard.
- Your account numbers are never displayed in full - only the last 4 digits can be viewed.
- You must have a valid Online Banking Login ID and password
- If no action is taken for 20 minutes, you will be automatically logged off Online Banking.
Generally, you will be able to access Online Banking seven (7) days a week, twenty-four (24) hours a day. However, at certain times, some or all of Online Banking may not be available due to system maintenance or reasons beyond the Bank's control. The Bank does not warrant that Online Banking will be available at all times. When unavailable, you may use our 24-Hour Banking telephone service, an automated teller machine (“ATM”) or a branch office to conduct your transactions. An Online Banking transaction initiated prior to 6:00PM (Pacific Standard Time) on a banking day is posted to your account the same day. All transfers completed after 6:00PM (Pacific Standard Time), or on a non-banking day, will be posted the following banking day.
Stop payment instructions received after 6:00PM (Pacific Standard Time), or on a day we are not open for business will also be processed on the following business day.
Bank of the Pacific will make every attempt to honor your stop payment request, however, if the item has already processed and posted to your account, the Bank will be unable to stop the item. It is your responsibility to review the account history to determine if the check has processed prior to submitting this stop payment request in order to avoid an unnecessary fee. In any case, our acceptance of a stop payment instruction will not constitute a representation that the item has not already been paid.
You may not appropriate any information or material that violates any copyright, trademark or other proprietary or intellectual property rights of any person or entity while using Online Banking. You may not gain, or attempt to gain, access to any Online Banking server, network or data not specifically permitted to you by the Bank or its suppliers, and you must not include any obscene, libelous, scandalous or defamatory content in any communications with the Bank or its suppliers.
Neither Bank of the Pacific nor its suppliers will be liable for any transaction if: (i) you do not have enough money in your account to complete the transaction; (ii) a legal order prohibits withdrawals from your account; (iii) your account is closed or has been frozen; (iv) the transaction would cause your balance to go over the credit limit for any credit arrangement set up to cover overdrafts; (v) you, or anyone you allow, commit fraud or violate any law or regulation in connection with Online Banking; (vi) any electronic terminal, telecommunication device or part of the electronic fund transfer system is not working properly; (vii) you did not provide us with complete and correct payment or transfer information; (viii) you did not properly follow the instructions for use of Online Banking; (ix) you knew that Online Banking was not operating properly at the time you initiated the transaction or payment; (x) there is a postal delay; or (xi) circumstances beyond our control (such as fire, flood or improper transmission or handling by a third party) that prevent, hinder or delay the transaction.
Fees and Charges.
There are no fees or charges for using the Online Banking service. However, depending on how you use the Online Banking service, you may incur other fees and charges including, but not limited to, normal account fees, service charges, stop payment fees, any Internet service provider fees, and telephone charges.
You should notify us immediately at (360) 533-8870 if you believe anyone has improperly obtained your Password or if you suspect any fraudulent activity in your account(s). If your Password (PIN) has been compromised and you notify us within two (2) business days of discovering the loss or misappropriation, your liability is limited to $50. If you do not notify us within the two (2) business day period, you could be liable up to $500 if we could have stopped the use of your accounts had we received notice in a timely manner. You should contact us, or the bill payment provider, as applicable, as soon as you identify any errors or discrepancies in your statement or transaction record, or if you need any information about a transaction listed on the statement or transaction record. We must hear from you no later than sixty (60) days after we have sent the first statement on which the problem or error appeared. If you notify us verbally or electronically, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) business days. If you fail to notify us within the sixty (60) day period, you may not recover the money you lost if we can establish that the loss could have been avoided had you notified us within the sixty-day period. We may extend these time periods for good reasons such as out-of-town travel or extended hospital stays.
When you report a problem or discrepancy, please: (i) tell us your name and account number; (ii) describe the error or the transaction you are unsure about and explain why you believe it is in error or what additional information you need; (iii) tell us the dollar amount of any suspected error; and (iv) for a bill payment, tell us the number of the account used to pay the bill, the applicable payee name and account number, the date the payment was sent, the payment amount and the payment reference number. Generally speaking, we will tell you the results of our investigation within ten (10) business days, or twenty (20) business days if the notice of error involves an electronic fund transfer to or from the account within 30 days after the first deposit to the account was made, after we hear from you. However, we may take up to forty-five (45) days, or ninety (90) days in the case of point of sale, international transactions or if the error occurred within 30 days after the first deposit to the account was made. In this case, we may provisionally credit your account so that you have use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If you fail to provide your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) business days of a request from us to do so, we reserve the right not to credit your account. If we confirm an error, we will correct your account record within one (1) business day. If we determine that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation within three (3) business days after we conclude our investigation and will debit any interim amounts credited to your account. You may request copies of any documents that we use in our investigation.
Electronic Mail (E-Mail).
Sending e-mail is a very good way to communicate with the Bank regarding your accounts or the Online Banking services. However, your e-mail is actually sent via your own software and, as a result, is not secure. Because of this, you should not include confidential information, such as account numbers and balances in any e-mail to the Bank. You may use the Online Banking Secure Mailbox to communicate confidential information to the Bank. You cannot use e-mail to initiate Online Banking transactions. All such transactions must be initiated using the appropriate functions within the Online Banking site or call your branch of account. The Bank will not be liable for any errors, omissions, claims, or problems of any kind involving your e-mail. By signing this Online Banking Disclosure & Agreement, you are consenting to receive notices regarding Online Banking via e-mail to the address we have in our files. Please send us a Secure Message to change the e-mail address to which notices are sent.
