USE OF ELECTRONIC SERVICES INVOLVES CERTAIN RISKS, INCLUDING THE RISK THAT OTHERS MAY GAIN UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION, AND THE RISK OF VIRUSES, THEFT, OPERATOR ERRORS, SEVERE OR EXTRAORDINARY WEATHER (INCLUDING FLOOD, EARTHQUAKE OR OTHER ACTS OF GOD), INSURRECTION, TERRORIST ACT, RIOT, LABOR DISPUTE AND OTHER LABOR PROBLEMS, ACCIDENT, EMERGENCY OR ACTION OF GOVERNMENT.  THOUGH WE TRY TO TAKE REASONABLE PRECAUTIONS TO PREVENT THESE OCCURRENCES, WE DO NOT TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY LOSSES RESULTING FROM A CAUSE OVER WHICH WE HAVE NO DIRECT CONTROL.  EXCEPT AS SPECIFICALLY PROVIDED IN THIS AGREEMENT OR WHERE THE LAW REQUIRES A DIFFERENT STANDARD, YOU AGREE THAT NEITHER WE NOR THE SERVICE PROVIDERS SHALL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSS, PROPERTY DAMAGE OR BODILY INJURY, WHETHER CAUSED BY THE EQUIPMENT, SOFTWARE, FIRST FEDERAL SAVINGS BANK, OR BY INTERNET BROWSER PROVIDERS, OR BY INTERNET ACCESS PROVIDERS OR BY ONLINE SERVICE PROVIDERS OR BY AN AGENT OR SUBCONTRACTOR OF ANY OF THE FOREGOING.  NOR SHALL WE OR THE SERVICE PROVIDERS BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL, ECONOMIC OR OTHER DAMAGES ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE INSTALLATION, USE OR MAINTENANCE OF THE EQUIPMENT, SOFTWARE, THE ONLINE FINANCIAL SERVICES, OR INTERNET BROWSER OR ACCESS SOFTWARE.

 

C. Hours of Accessibility

You can access your First Federal Savings Bank accounts electronically seven days a week, 24 hours a day. However, at certain times, some electronic services may not be available due to system maintenance. We will make every attempt to notify you online when this occurs.

 

IV. General Terms

 

A. Changes to Charges, Fees or Other Terms

We reserve the right to make changes in this Agreement.  When changes are made, we will notify you online, or send a notice to you at the address shown on our records, or send you an electronic mail message (E-mail). The notice will be posted or sent at least thirty (30) days in advance of the effective date of any fees for online transactions, or of any stricter limits on the type, amount or frequency of transactions or any increase in your responsibility for unauthorized transactions, unless an immediate change is necessary to maintain the security of the system. If such a change is made, and it can be disclosed without jeopardizing the security of the system, we will provide you with electronic or written notice within thirty (30) days after the change. As always, you may choose to accept or decline changes by continuing or discontinuing the accounts or services to which these changes relate.

 

B. Disclosure of Account Information

You understand that in addition to information furnished pursuant to legal process, some information about your accounts may automatically be disclosed to others. For example, the tax laws require disclosure to the government of the amount of the interest you earn, and some transactions, such as certain large currency and foreign transactions, must be reported to the government. The Bank may also provide information about your account(s) to persons or companies the Bank believes would use the information for reasonable purposes, such as when a prospective creditor seeks to verify information you may have given in a credit application or a merchant calls to verify a check you have written. In addition, the Bank routinely informs a credit bureau when accounts are closed by the Bank because they were not handled properly. The Bank may also seek information about you from others, such as a credit bureau, in connection with the opening or maintaining of your account. You authorize these transfers of information.

C. Questions or Error Resolution on First Federal Savings Bank accounts

In case of questions about your accounts, here is what you should do:

  • Contact First Federal Savings Bank by electronic mail (E-mail).
  • Fax First Federal Savings Bank at (217) 356-2502.
  • Telephone First Federal Savings Bank at (217) 356-2265
  • Write First Federal Savings Bank at P.O. Box 1010, Champaign, IL61826-1010, as soon as you can if you think your statement or transaction record is wrong, or if you need more 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, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) business days.
  • Tell us your name and account number.
  • Describe the error or the transaction you are unsure about, and explain why you believe it is in error or why you need more information.
  • Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error.
  • For a bill payment, tell us the checking account number used to pay the bill, payee name, date the payment was sent, payment amount, reference number, and payee account number for the payment in question.
  • Here's what we will do:

We will tell you the results of our investigation within ten (10) business days, or twenty (20) business days in the case of point of sale purchases, after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to forty-five (45) days, or ninety (90) days in the case of point of sale or international transactions, to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within ten (10) business days, or twenty (20) business days in the case of point of sale or international transactions, 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 ten (10) business days, we will not credit your account. If we determine that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation within three (3) business days after we finish our investigation and debit the amount of the error that we previously credited. You may request copies of the documents that we used in our investigation. For more details, please refer to Electronic Fund Transfers Your Rights and Responsibilities in the Terms and Conditions of Your Deposit Account.

 

V. Protecting Your Account

 

A. Preventing Misuse of Your Account

Your role is extremely important in the prevention of any wrongful use of your account. You must promptly examine your statement upon receipt. If you find that your records and ours disagree, you must immediately call First Federal Savings Bank at (217) 356-2265.

Protecting Personal Information - In addition to protecting your account information, you should also take precautions to protect your personal identification information, such as your driver's license, Social Security Number, etc. This information by itself or together with information on your account may allow unauthorized access to your account(s). It is your responsibility to protect personal information with the same level of care that you protect your account information.

Taking Care of Your Online Password - The password that is used to gain electronic access should also be kept safe and confidential. For your protection we recommend that you change your online password regularly. It is recommended that you memorize your online password and do not write it down.  You are responsible for any unauthorized, fraudulent or otherwise wrongful use of your PIN.

You are responsible for keeping your password, account numbers and other account data confidential. If you believe that your online password may have been lost or stolen, notify First Federal Savings Bank immediately at (217) 356-2265.

Safeguarding Your Electronic Device – If your electronic device has been lost or stolen you must disable your device and notify us immediately at (217-356-2265).  You can disable your device yourself by logging into your online banking account, clicking Account Services>Requests>Mobile Banking Enrollment>”Stop using this device for mobile banking”>Go.  If it can be shown that you delayed notifying us of the loss, theft or misuse of your electronic device you may be liable for unauthorized transactions on your account.

 

B. Unauthorized Transactions on Your First Federal Savings Bank Accounts

Notify us immediately if you believe another person has improperly obtained your online password. Also notify us if you suspect any fraudulent activity on your account. Only reveal your account number to a legitimate entity for a purpose you authorize.  To notify us, call First Federal Savings Bank at (217) 356-2265 or write First Federal Savings Bank, P.O. Box 1010, Champaign, IL  61824-1010.  If your statement shows withdrawals, transfers or purchases that you did not make or authorize, please notify us immediately. If you do not notify us within sixty (60) days after the statement was sent to you, and we could have stopped someone from taking money if you had notified us within that time frame, you may not get back any money lost after the sixty (60) days. If extenuating circumstances, such as a long trip or hospital stay, kept you from telling us, the time periods in this section will be extended.
