This document explains the terms and conditions for using our Internet Home Banking Service and provides certain disclosures and information to you concerning the service.
Each of your accounts at Southern Pine Credit Union is also governed by the applicable account disclosure/agreement and Truth in Savings disclosure you received when you opened your account.
HOW TO ACCESS YOUR ACCOUNTS
To access your accounts through our Home Banking service, you must have an account with our financial institution with your current information. This information is requested when you register with our home banking system. The password that is used to gain access to your information should be kept confidential, just as you would keep other security information confidential. For your protection, we recommend that you change your home banking password regularly. It is recommended that you memorize this password and do not write it down. You are responsible for keeping your password, account numbers and other account data confidential. If you believe that your password may have been lost or stolen, or that someone has transferred or may transfer money between your accounts without your permission, notify Southern Pine Credit Union at once at 229-559-3311. You cannot use E-mail to initiate transactions, changed information or inquire on your account(s). We will not respond to these types of requests via E-mail, since we cannot be certain we are corresponding with you. Please use the appropriate functions within our Internet Home Banking service, visit Southern Pine Credit Union office or call us at 229-559-3311.
All transactions generated by you through our home banking service and any home banking fees will appear on your monthly or quarterly statement.
We use SSL encryption and multi factor authentication to ensure the privacy of your information when sending data between our home banking server and your PC.
The server logs multiple items of information for all members. For authorized members who use home banking, we collect and store information such as how often members utilize features on their home banking account, along with dates and times of various features of the home banking system. We use this information for internal analysis, possible fraudulent activity, and product evaluation. We never sell, transfer, or trade this information unless we are compelled to do so by law. We may gather and store information available to us on failed login attempts and other activity we consider a threat to our system. In these cases, we will share this information with other companies, agencies, and law enforcement officials as we see fit.
OPERATING SYSTEMS AND SECURITY
We place the cookie with instructions that it can only be sent to a server in our home-banking domain. A cookie cannot be used to extract data from your PC. We do not store your Access Code, User Id or Password in your cookie. The cookie we set will time out your access authority to our home banking homepage. Until it times out, you can come back to our home banking without logging in. After the time out period, you will need to log in again. Remember that most browsers will let you use a BACK button to view previously visited documents, even if your viewing authority has expired. For this reason, the only way to keep others from viewing your account balance is to logout of the browser when you are finished with your session. This is especially important if you are using a public or shared computer.
LIABILITY FOR UNAUTHORIZED TRANSFERS
Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your password has been lost or stolen and immediately change your password from within your home banking account. Calling is the best way to notify us immediately at 229-559-3311. Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, tell us at once. If you believe your password has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, call 229-559-3311 ASAP.
