Security Information (Our Procedures)
Our Service utilizes a comprehensive security strategy to protect accounts and transactions conducted over the Internet. In addition to our login security which incorporates multi-factor authentication (i.e. access IDs, passwords, challenge questions), we use secure socket layer (“SSL”) encryption technology that ensures all data passed between your web browser and our Service remains private.

Your browser automatically activates this technology when it attempts to connect to our Service and it will support the 128-bit key lengths. Whenever SSL is securing your communications, the browser will typically indicate the "secure session" by displaying a small padlock icon as locked. Your communications are encrypted from your browser to our servers at all times, so no unauthorized party can read the information as it is carried over the Internet. Additionally, our servers have been certified by a "Certificate Authority" to assure you that you are actually talking to our servers instead of someone pretending to be us.

There is a 20-minute default time limit on any Online Banking session. If your Online Banking session is inactive for 20 minutes the Online Banking session will end and you will need to log in again.

Data transferred through the Service is encrypted in an effort to provide transmission security. The system utilizes identification technology to verify that the sender and receiver of system transmissions can be appropriately identified by each other.

You agree that these procedures are a commercially reasonable method of providing security against unauthorized payment orders or other transactions and that these procedures are not for detection of errors. We reserve the right to change any process from time to time to implement new measures that are recommended in the industry to respond to new or increased threats.

Security Information (Your Obligations)

You understand the importance of your role in preventing misuse of your accounts through the Service, and you:

  • Agree to promptly examine any statement you receive or that we make available to you for each of your accounts in a timely manner;
  • Agree to protect the confidentiality of your account, and expressly assume responsibility for any transaction conducted by anyone who uses your password with your permission or any Losses that result from the actions (or inactions) of you or anyone who uses your password with your permission;
  • Understand that certain identification information by itself or together with information related to your account may allow unauthorized access to your accounts;
  • Acknowledge that, notwithstanding our efforts to ensure that the Service is secure, the Internet is inherently insecure and that transmission of electronic mail occurs openly on the Internet and can potentially be monitored and read by others;
  • Understand and acknowledge that we cannot and do not warrant that email transmitted to and from us, will not be monitored or read by others;
  • Understand and agree that we are not responsible for any electronic virus or viruses that you may encounter;
  • Agree to routinely scan your computers and diskettes using a reliable virus detection product to detect and remove any viruses, but understand and acknowledge that there are certain viruses, malware, etc., which may not be detectable by commercially available software and agree that the Bank shall have no liability for any such intrusions, except as otherwise set forth herein;
  • Agree to install, maintain, update and utilize industry standard security products that are appropriate for you, including, without limitation, firewalls, anti-virus protection software, anti-spyware protection, operating systems and applications with the latest patches, and a browser product that indicates the web site you are on; and

Agree to comply with the password requirements set forth herein, as such password requirements may be changed from time to time, and to employ reasonable steps in selecting, maintaining, and protecting passwords and other codes and access devices related to the Services and your accounts.

Fees and Charges

Bristol Morgan Bank will not charge you a fee for accessing your accounts through Bristol Morgan Bank’s Online Banking Service. However, your Bristol Morgan Bank accounts are subject to any fees and charges normally assessed with your accounts as set forth in the account disclosures. You agree to pay any additional reasonable charges for services you request that are not covered by this Agreement. You are also responsible for telephone and Internet service fees you incur in connection with your use of Bristol Morgan Bank’s Online Banking system.

Posting of Transfers

Transfers initiated through Bristol Morgan Bank’s Online Banking Service before 5:00 p.m. (Central Standard Time) on a business day are posted to your account the same day. Transfers completed after 5:00 p.m. (Central Standard Time) on a business day, Saturday, Sunday or banking holiday, will be posted on the next business day.

When you schedule a funds transfer or bill payment using the Service, you authorize the Bank to withdraw the necessary funds from your account with the Bank. The Bank may charge payments or funds transfers against the account even though such charge or transfer creates an overdraft, or the Bank may refuse to make such withdrawals if such charge or transfer creates an overdraft. If you overdraw your account, you agree to immediately pay the Bank the overdrawn amount, together with any applicable fees.

Limits on Amounts and Frequency of transactions

The number of transfers from bank accounts and the amounts which may be transferred are limited pursuant to the terms of the applicable deposit agreement and disclosure for those accounts. If a hold has been placed on deposits made to an account from which you wish to transfer funds, you cannot transfer the portion of the funds held until the hold expires.

Stop Payment Orders

You may place stop payment orders on checks using the Service. When placing a stop payment order, you agree to indemnify us and hold us harmless for all losses incurred by us due to our refusal to pay the check. You acknowledge that, under the law, there are some situations where a check can be enforced against you even though you ordered us to stop payment. In such instances, we will not be liable to you for refusing to enforce your stop payment order. We will not have a duty to stop payment until you have given us the number, the exact amount of the item and the name of the payee. In addition, we must have had a reasonable opportunity to act on your stop payment order prior to the earlier of our payment of it or one hour after the opening of the next business day after the business day we received it. The information we require you to submit in connection with your stop payment order must be exactly correct to enable our computer system to match the payment to be stopped to your stop payment order.

A stop payment order on a check is effective for six months unless you renew the notice in writing within that time, in which case the stop payment order will be effective for an additional six month period. At our option, we may continue stop payment orders beyond these time periods unless cancelled by you. Stop payment orders received after regular banking hours or on a holiday shall be deemed received at the opening of business on the next business day.

If we pay an item despite your timely stop payment order, the following rules will apply: (a) you will have to prove to us that you have suffered a loss and, if so, the amount of the loss; (b) we will be able to enforce any rights that the original payee or any other person who held the check had against you; (c) we will not re-credit your account until you prove your loss and we are satisfied that we are required by law to do so; and (d) if we re-credit your account, you agree to sign a statement describing the dispute with the payee or other holder of the check, to transfer to us all of your rights against the payee or other holder of the check, and to assist us in legal action taken against that person. A stop payment order will be released only upon written request from the account owner who authorized the stop payment order to be placed.


We do not reveal specific information about your accounts or other personally identifiable data to parties outside Bank for their independent use unless:

  • You request or authorize it;
  • The information is provided to help complete a transaction initiated by you;
  • The information is provided to a reputable credit bureau or similar information reporting agency;
  • The disclosure otherwise is lawfully permitted or required.

There are many state and federal laws that require us to disclose information to various government entities. Some examples of these laws are the Bank Secrecy Act, the Internal Revenue Code, and the Right to Financial Privacy Act. There are many other laws and regulations that require us, and our contractors and service providers, to disclose information. In addition, if you are involved in a legal proceeding, state and federal law provide the parties to the litigation with the right to obtain records and information from us. In all these instances, we will disclose the information whenever required to do so by law, regulation, lawful judicial or administrative process, or court order.

Change in Terms

We may change any term of this Agreement at any time. If the change would result in increased fees for any of Bristol Morgan Bank’s Online Banking Service services, increased liability for you, fewer types of available electronic fund transfers, or stricter limitations on the frequency or dollar amount of transfers, we agree to give you notice at least 21 days before the effective date of any such change, unless an immediate change is necessary to maintain the security of an account or our electronic fund transfer system. We will post any required notice of the change in terms on Bristol Morgan Bank's web site or forward it to you by e-mail or by postal mail.
