Online Banking Disclosure and Agreement
This Online Banking Agreement and Disclosure governs the terms and conditions of the use of home banking services provided by East Wisconsin Savings Bank. In this Agreement, the words "you" and "your" mean an Online Banking member, and the words "we," "us" and "our" mean East Wisconsin Savings Bank. The word "Account" means any Account you have with us that is listed under your name and your tax identification number. All references to time of day in this Agreement and Disclosure refer to Central Standard Time.
Your Account, and the use of Online Banking are also governed by Account Rules and Regulations disclosures provided to you when you opened your Account. By using Online Banking you indicate your agreement with the terms and conditions of Online Banking.
General Information about Online Banking:
You can use your PC to access Online Banking any time, day or night, seven days a week. However, Online Banking may occasionally be temporarily unavailable due to system updating or technical problems. Interruption of service or access caused by your Internet service provider will also prevent your use of Online Banking. You are responsible for charges assessed by your Internet service provider and for your PC hardware, software and maintenance.
Online Banking is limited to personal Accounts only and does not include business or other commercial accounts. You must be a signer on an Account in order to access it through Online Banking. Further, we reserve the right to deny Account transactions under certain circumstances. If more than one of you uses Online Banking, you agree that all of you can access all of the funds held in the Accounts.
East Wisconsin Savings Bank's Online Banking allows:
To access your Accounts you must first gain Internet Account Access by clicking the Online Banking button and entering your assigned Username and Password. If the information entered is correct, you will be presented with a welcome screen and will be given the option to create a new password for your Internet Account Access. The account summary feature will summarize your various Accounts, showing the Account name, balance, available balance and other information. The balance figure in your Accounts may not reflect your most recent transactions; also, the available balance figure may include funds that may not be immediately available for withdrawal.
Fund Transfers Between Accounts:
You may transfer funds electronically between your Accounts at East Wisconsin Savings Bank. All these Accounts must be in your name and tax identification number. You may transfer available funds provided there are no other holds on the Accounts. A unique reference number is assigned to successful as well as unsuccessful transfers. Transfers cannot be canceled. You cannot transfer to a certificate of deposit account. You may make up to a total of 6 pre-authorized, automatic, telephone or computer transfers or payments per month or statement cycle from your savings or money market accounts to other accounts or third parties. If you have a money market account, no more than 3 of these payments may be made by check or other similar item. Transfers made using the Online Bank are counted against the 6 permitted number of transfers.
Online Bill Payments:
You must register to use the bill payment option. Upon approval, your Online Bill Pay access will be enabled. You may only make payments through a designated checking Account. The requested payments are forwarded to a bill payment service provider, who will transfer funds to the payee either electronically or by sending the payee a paper check. (A "payee" is the person or business you are paying.) Your payees must all be located in the United States and accept payment in U.S. Dollars. You cannot use Online Bank to make payments to federal, state and local governments. Some other categories of payees may also be restricted.
Your payments will be deducted from your account by a direct automated clearing house (ACH) debit through Federal Reserve banking channels; you agree that payment transactions executed through the ACH will be subject to the rules of the National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA).
We are only liable for exercising ordinary care in processing and sending payments to the bill pay service provider upon your authorization in accordance with this agreement. You should schedule a payment to a new payee at least ten Banking Days before any payment due date, to allow us time to set up the payee and verify information about your account with the payee. For all subsequent payments, you agree to allow at least five Banking Days between the date you schedule a payment to be initiated and the payment due date (that is, the due date shown on your invoice or provided in your agreement with the payee, not taking into account any applicable grace period). If you do not, you will be fully responsible for all late fees, finance charges or other action taken by the payee. If you schedule your payment and follow all instructions provided, but the payment is not received by the payee in a timely manner, we will work with the payee on your behalf to attempt to have any late fees or charges reversed. Additional information is available by clicking on the HELP and FAQ links on the Bill Payment page.
Other Limitations on Services:
All Bill Payments and Transfers are subject to the terms and conditions of the Account being accessed. You can use Online Banking to obtain electronic credit advances from your Home Equity Line of Credit Account up to your available credit line. There are no maximum limits on the dollar amount or amount of transfers you may make as long as the transaction does not cause the balance in your Account to be less than zero. However, we are not required to complete a transfer from any Account if you do not have sufficient available funds in that Account, free of legal restrictions. Federal regulations limit the number of transfers and check withdrawals from interest bearing Accounts like Savings and Money Market Accounts. You may make up to a total of 6 pre-authorized, automatic, telephone or computer transfers or payments per Account cycle from your Savings or Money Market Deposit Accounts to other Accounts or third parties. In the case of Money Market Deposit Accounts, no more than 3 of these 6 payments may be made by check or similar item. Transfers from Savings and Money Market Deposit Accounts made through Online Banking are counted against the permissible number of transfers.
Canceling or Modifying Online Bank Authorized Transfers and Payments:
Transfers between Accounts take place immediately. You cannot cancel or change a transfer once you have confirmed it and submitted it. To change or cancel a bill payment, follow the instructions provided to you by the bill payment service provider. In general, while payments are still pending, the bill pay service provider will allow you to change or delete the payments until 12:00 midnight of the night before the scheduled processing date.
Authorization to Charge Accounts:
You authorize East Wisconsin Savings Bank to debit the Accounts you designate for all Online Bank transactions, including the amount of any Bill Payment or Transfer that you make plus any charges for the service. You authorize us to process Bill Payments and to transfer funds according to your instructions. You authorize us to initiate any reversing entry and to debit your Accounts at East Wisconsin Savings Bank or elsewhere, in order to correct any mistaken credit entry. If a Bill Payment request describes the recipient incorrectly by name or account number, execution of the request will occur on the basis of the account number, even if it identifies a person different from the named recipient. You also authorize us to make those Bill Payments required by check even though you have not signed the check used to make the payment.
You are responsible for all transfers and payments you authorize using Online Banking. If you permit other persons to use your Username and Password to access Online Banking, you are responsible for any transaction they authorize from your Accounts.
Limit of Our and Other Providers' Responsibility:
We agree to make reasonable efforts to ensure full performance of Online Banking. We will be responsible for acting only on those instructions that are actually received and cannot assume responsibility for malfunctions in your computer equipment or in communications facilities not under our control that may affect the accuracy or timeliness of messages you send. We are not responsible for any losses or delays in transmission of instructions arising out of the use of any Internet service provider providing connection to the Internet or caused by any browser software. We are not responsible for any direct, indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages arising in any way out of your use of Online Banking.
Documentation and Verification of Payments and Transfers:
Upon completion of a Bill Payment or Transfer using Online Banking, you will be given a reference number. You should keep a record of this number, along with the payee, scheduled date and transaction amount. Your Online Bill Pay payments will also appear on your statement. No printed receipts are issued through Online Banking.
You will receive a monthly statement covering Online Banking activity for any Account other than a certificate of deposit or passbook savings account. If you bring us your passbook, we will record any Online Banking transfers that were made to your Account since the last time you brought us the passbook.
You agree to review your monthly statement and passbook activity promptly. If your monthly statement or passbook shows transfers or payments of funds that you did not make, you must tell us at once. You also agree to tell us promptly about any change in your address, so that we may send your monthly statements to your correct address.
There is no charge for the use of Online Banking Account Access feature. There is a fee for using Online Bill Pay. We will deduct this fee from your designated checking Account each month until you or we discontinue the service. Additionally, a bill payment overdraft and a bill stop payment are subject to fees.

In addition to the fees noted here, the service charges and fees provided for in the "Truth in Savings" and "Account Rules and Regulations" disclosures for your Accounts will continue to apply.
Because normal Internet e-mail transmissions may not be secure, you agree to contact us electronically only through Online Banking e-mail. You also agree to receive communications regarding your Account, including change-in-terms notices regarding Online Banking, electronically and will not attempt to circumvent receiving any messages. You are deemed to have received any electronic messages sent to you when they are made available to you, regardless of whether you access the Online Bank. You may print a copy of such communications using the "print" function of your software. We will not immediately receive e-mail that you send. Therefore, you should not rely on e-mail if you need to communicate with us immediately (for example, if you need to stop payment on a check, to report a lost or stolen ATM or Debit card, or to report an unauthorized transaction from one of your Accounts). We will not take actions based on your e-mail requests until we actually receive your message and have a reasonable opportunity to act.
You must enter your Username and Password at the start of every Online Banking session. Your Password is confidential and you are responsible for keeping it confidential. You agree not to disclose or otherwise make your Password available to anyone not authorized to withdraw funds from your Account. The Online Banking transactions are private and secure. The latest technology was applied in creating the Online Banking security architecture. The security architecture utilizes the Internet for secure delivery of account balances, account histories, and transfer requests, while utilizing a private network for access to your Account information. If you wish to learn more about Online Banking security, please click on the "Security" link on the Online Banking sign-on page.
Our Liability if We Fail to Make Certain Transfers or Payments:
If we do not complete a transfer to or from your Account on time or in the correct amount when you have properly instructed us to do so, we will be liable for the damages that you prove are directly caused by our actions. However, there are some exceptions to our liability to you. We will not be liable, for instance if:
We are not liable in any way for damages you incur if:
Your Liability for Unauthorized Use:
Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your Account, your Username and/or your password has been lost or stolen, or your password or Online Banking has been used or may be used without your permission. Telephoning is the best way to notify us. You can lose no more than $50 if you fail to give us notice of a lost or stolen Username, password or unauthorized use of your Online Banking Account.
If you believe your Username and/or your password has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your Account without your permission using your password or Online Bank service, call or write to us at the telephone number or address shown in the "Errors or Questions" section.
Errors or Questions:
If you believe there has been an error or you have a question about a transfer, please call or write to us as soon as you can if you think your statement or passbook is wrong or if you need more information about a transfer listed on the statement or passbook.
We must hear from you no later than 60 Calendar Days after we sent you the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared. A statement is considered to have been sent when it is first made available.

Business Days: Monday through Friday
Business Hours: 8:30 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. (CST)
We will determine whether an error occurred within 10 calendar days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 calendar days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will provisionally credit your Account within 10 calendar days 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 10 business days, we may not credit your Account. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation within 3 business days after we finish our investigation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation and we must make these available to you for your inspection. For a reasonable fee covering our duplication costs, we will provide you with copies of any such documents that you request. If your alleged error concerns a transfer to or from a third party (for example, a social security payment), our investigation may be limited to a review of our own records. If we decide that there was no error, you may want to contact such third party to pursue the matter further.
In order that your privacy may be protected, we will not disclose any information about you or your Account to any person, organization or agency except:
Ending the Online Banking Agreement:
You may end your rights to use Online Banking by telling us in writing. We may end your rights to use Online Banking for any reason and at any time without telling you.
If more than one person is authorized to withdraw funds from your Account, or if another person uses Online Banking to access your Account, we cannot stop that person from using Online Banking unless we end this Agreement.
If the Account is a joint Account, any owner of the Account may ask us to end this Agreement. We are not responsible for notifying any remaining Account holders of the termination.
If you end your rights to use Online Banking, you authorize us to continue making transfers and bill payments you have previously authorized until such time as we have had a reasonable opportunity to act upon your written notice. Once we have acted upon your notice, we will make no further transfers or payments from your Account, including transfers or payments you have previously authorized. However, you must cancel any automatic recurring payments using Online Banking prior to closing your Account, otherwise we will continue to make such payments.
If we end your rights to use Online Banking, we reserve the right to make no further transfers or payments from your Account, including any transaction you have previously authorized.
If either you or we end your rights to use Online Banking, we will no longer have to complete any of your Online Banking transactions. You will remain obligated to us under this Agreement for all your Online Banking transactions, even if they occur or are completed after this Agreement is ended.
You are responsible for complying with all terms of this Agreement and Disclosure and the regulations governing the deposit and credit Accounts that you access using Online Banking. We can terminate your Online Banking privileges without notice to you if you do not pay any fee required in this Agreement and Disclosure when due or if you do not comply with any of the other terms and conditions of this agreement.
Change in Terms:
We will deliver an electronic notice to you at least 21 days before the effective date of any change in a term or condition disclosed in this Agreement and Disclosure, if the change would result in increased costs or liability to you or stricter limitations on transfers you may make. If, however, an immediate change in the terms and conditions is necessary for security reasons, we may amend these terms and conditions without such prior notice.
Ability to stop payment - The initiation by you of certain electronic funds transfers from your Account will, except as otherwise provided in this agreement, effectively eliminate your ability to stop payment of the transfer. Unless otherwise provided in this agreement, you may not stop payment of electronic funds transfers; therefore, you should not employ electronic access for purchases or services, unless you are satisfied that you will not need to stop payment.
This Agreement is governed by the federal laws of the United States and the laws of the State of Wisconsin unless otherwise required by federal or state law. Any issue relating to an Account or service with us that you access through Online Banking shall be governed by the laws specified in the agreement for that Account or service if there is a separate agreement for that Account or service. In the event of any conflict between these provisions and any applicable law or regulation, these provisions shall be deemed modified to the extent, and only to the extent, required to comply with such law or regulation.

For any qualifying purchases during the current month, we will distribute the lump sum amount to you during the following calendar month.

Each offer will specify whether the purchase can be made online, at a store location, or by telephone to be eligible for rewards.

Please contact our support team if you believe you have made a qualifying purchase for which you did not receive Rewards.
