This Internet Banking Disclosure and Agreement (“the Agreement”) explains the terms and conditions governing the basic Internet banking offered by Pinnacle Bank (“the Bank”). All Internet banking services of any kind whatsoever offered or afforded by the Bank (including, but not limited to funds transfers) will be referred to collectively as “Internet Banking Services” in the Agreement. By using any of the Internet Banking Services, you agree to abide by the terms and conditions of this Agreement and authorize the Bank to use any of your accounts to execute and settle transactions and/or fees initiated by you using the Internet Banking Services. The term “Business day” means all days except Saturday, Sunday and all banking holidays.
All Internet Banking Services are governed by this Agreement, all applicable federal regulatory disclosures, and the Deposit Account Terms and Conditions. You are responsible for the payment of any fees incurred by you on any account, for any service, at any time. You agree to pay all such fees assessed by the Bank. Further, you agree to pay all telephone charges or fees incurred by you in accessing Internet Banking Services.
Your initial use of any Internet Banking Services, in connection with your account at the Bank constitutes your acceptance and agreement to be bound by all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement and of the Deposit Account Terms and Conditions. Such initial use acknowledges your receipt and understanding of this Agreement and Deposit Account Terms and Conditions.
You agree that the Bank may, as permitted by law, provide all applicable disclosures to you electronically. You are responsible for downloading or printing the disclosures or providing the Bank with a non-electronic address to which the disclosures may be mailed. You agree that the Bank may take a reasonable time to respond to e-mail requests. Correspondence that requires expeditious handling—for example, reporting of unauthorized transactions or stop payment requests, should be made by calling the Bank. You agree that Pinnacle Bank may send you electronic messages about other products or services we offer.
Bill Pay is a free service to those who maintain an online banking account at Pinnacle Bank.
In order to use our Bill Payment Services, you must provide (a) the specific Pinnacle Bank account(s) from which the payments are to be made; (b) the complete name of the payee; (c) the account number; (d) the payee’s remittance address, (all exactly as shown on the billing statement or invoice); (e) the amount of the payment; and (f) the date you want the payment to be initiated. Failure to provide this information accurately, shall release the Bank from any liability resulting from a payment not being made. If the date you want the payment to be initiated is not a business day, the payment will be initiated the next business day before 1:00 (EST). By the use of our Bill Payment Services, you agree that, based upon instructions received under your Access Code, we can charge your designated account by (a) electronic transfer, (b) “no signature required draft”, or (c) by debiting and remitting funds on your behalf. We reserve the right to refuse to process any action or transaction authorized by you. If we refuse to process any action or transaction authorized by you, we will notify you promptly. We will not be liable for any action or transaction not processed, through no fault of ours, (a) if you do not have sufficient funds in the account from which a payment or transfer is to be made, (b) if the account has been closed, (c) if the account is not in good standing, or (d) if we reverse an action or transaction because of insufficient funds. Further, we will not be liable (a) if the action or transaction you authorized would cause your account to exceed any credit limit assigned to that account or (b) if circumstances or persons beyond our or our agent’s control prevent, delay,
intercept, or alter the processing of an action or transaction, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken. Such circumstances include, but are not limited to, (a) equipment failure, (b) telecommunications failure or interruptions, (c) labor disputes, (d) delays caused by payees, (c) interruption of the service by payment networks, (f) wartime, (g) acts of terrorism, (h) fire, (i) floods, and (j) other disasters.
Bill Payment Restrictions – The payment of bills and transfer of funds must be payable in U.S. dollars to a payee located in the United States. You may not use our Bill Payment Services (a) to pay any Government agencies, (b) to pay for securities purchases, (c) to make tax payments, or (d) to pay court ordered payments. If you authorize an action or transaction with any restricted payees, we will not be responsible for any consequences to you for the failure to process said action or transaction. We reserve the right to further restrict types of payees to whom payments may be made. Authorized transactions from any money market accounts you designate for use with our Services may be limited by the Truth in Savings Disclosure and the Transaction Limitations, both of which you received when you opened your money market account with Pinnacle Bank.
Payments from your Bill Payment Services accounts cannot be more than your available balance. Actions or transactions can be entered, edited, or deleted until 1:00 p.m. EST the day before the payment is to be initiated. Once payments are initiated, they will not be immediately received by the payee. You must authorize actions or transactions to be initiated (a) for payments by check, no later than seven (7) business days prior to the payee’s due date, and (b) for electronic payments, no later than three (3) business days prior to the payee’s due date. When you enter an authorization for the payment of a bill, the Bill Payment Services program will inform you whether this payment will be made electronically or by check. Please allow ample processing time for each action or transaction you authorize. We will not be responsible for any consequences to you for the failure to timely process said action or transaction.

However, you agree that you will not, under any circumstances, disclose your password by telephone or any other means, to any person.
