An "unauthorized transaction" is an online banking transfer, bill payment, or e-bill payment that does not benefit you and is made by a person who does not have actual authority to make such payment or transfer. A transaction by a joint account holder or other person with an interest in your account is not an unauthorized transaction. We may require you to change your Codes periodically. 

Error Resolution Notice – In case of errors or questions about your electronic transfers, call or write us at the telephone number or address listed in this disclosure, as soon as you can, if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transfer listed on the statement or receipt. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we mailed or made available electronically to you the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.
  • Tell us your name and account number (if any).
  • Describe the error or the transfer you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.
  • Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error.
If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days. We will determine whether an error occurred within 10 business days (5 business days for Money (debit) Card Point of Sale transactions by Visa and 20 business days if the transfer involved a new account) after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days (90 days if the transfer involved a new account, a Point of Sale transaction, or a foreign-initiated transfer) to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days (5 days for Money (Debit) Card Point of Sale transactions processed by Visa and 20 business days if the transfer involved a new account) for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes us complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we not receive it within 10 business days, we may not credit your account. Your account is considered a new account for the first 30 days after the first deposit is made, unless each of you already has an established account with us before this account is opened.

We will tell you’re the results within three business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was not error, we will send you a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.

Contacting us at 1-800-994-2500 during business hours or at 1-877-557-3636 during non-business hours is the best way of minimizing your losses. Alternatively you may fax us at (920) 982-7498 or write us at: FIRST STATE BANK PO Box 268, New London, WI 54961-0268. If your monthly statement contains transactions that you did not make, notify us at once.

6. YOUR LIABILITY AND RESPONSIBILITIES.
Consumer Liability – Generally – Tell us AT ONCE if you believe that your card and/or code has been lost or stolen, or if you believe that an electronic fund transfer has been made without your permission using information from your check. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You can lose no more than $50 if you if you fail to give us notice of a lost or stolen card and /or code. If you do not give us notice after learning of the loss or theft of your card and/or code, you will be liable for the lesser of:
  • $50
  • The amount of any money, property, or services obtained by unauthorized use of the card and/or code before you gave us notice.
Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, including those made by card, code or other means, tell us at once.
If you do not tell us within 60-days after the statement was mailed or made available electronically to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 60 days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) prevented you from telling us, we may extend the period.

Upon termination of any Service, you will be responsible for making arrangements to pay any future, recurring or automatic payments. We reserve the right to refuse to pay a Payee or Participating Biller or to transfer funds for any reason that we deem sufficient, including, without limitation, if (a) your designated account has insufficient available funds, (b) a Payee or Participating Biller has refused to accept a payment, (c) you attempt to make a payment directly to a governmental agency or to a Payee or Participating Biller outside of the United States or a U.S. territory, (d) you attempt to make a court-directed alimony or support payment, or (e) you are making payments to a Payee or Participating Biller, the underlying purpose of which violates any state or federal law.

Removal from an eligible business account. If you are a signer or an authorized user on an eligible business account, as described in Section 2, we may, in good faith, rely on resolutions or any other documentation presented to us which purports to remove you as a signer or authorized user on such business account. If you are removed, your online access to such accounts will be terminated. In the event you have linked your personal accounts to such business accounts, your ability to view your personal accounts and statements online may also be terminated. In the event you are removed as a signer from a business account to which you have previously linked personal accounts, you should contact us immediately at 1-800-994-2500. We will help you create a new online banking profile that will allow you to regain online access to your personal accounts.

7. BANK'S LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.

Your online statements will be retained in your Online Banking profile beginning with your first electronic statement and as long as your account(s) remain enrolled for Online Statements.

If you no longer wish to receive Online Statements for a particular Account, you can revert to paper statements by clicking on the Customer Service tab of Online banking, selecting “Change statement delivery method,” and selecting the paper option for that particular Account. Note, if you change the delivery method to “paper” and depending upon your account type, there may be a $3.00 service charge per statement cycle to receive a paper statement when your account is enrolled in Online Banking. For combined statements, the primary Account must be activated to allow Online Statements. Your primary account is the first account presented on your combined statement. Should you have questions regarding this information, contact First State Bank’s Customer Care Center at 1-800-994-2500. 

ONLINE STATEMENTS & DISCLOSURES SERVICE AGREEMENT

This Online Statement & Disclosures Agreement supplements the terms and conditions that apply to the First State Bank Online Banking application you use, which are set forth in a separate agreement you have previously agreed to.

The words "we," "us" and "our" mean the First State Bank office with which you have your Account, and the words "you" and "your" mean you, the individual who is identified on the Account as the owner or authorized signer on the Account(s) and who is agreeing to be bound by this Agreement, both on your behalf and, if applicable, on behalf of your business as its authorized representative. As used in this Agreement, "Disclosure" means any account statement, authorization, agreement, disclosure, notice, or other information related to your Accounts including, but not limited to, information that we are required by law to provide in writing.

1. DISCLOSURES WE WILL PROVIDE TO YOU ELECTRONICALLY

When you activate Online Statements associated with your Account(s), you agree that we may provide you with any Disclosures relating to your Account(s) in electronic format, and that we will discontinue sending paper Disclosures to you. We will only provide Disclosures to you electronically unless and until you withdraw your consent as described below. Your consent to receive Disclosures electronically includes, but is not limited to: 

  • Account statements and related Disclosures;
  • initial Disclosures or agreements for your Account(s) or associated payment features; 
  • notices or Disclosures about a change or amendments in the terms of your Account(s) or associated payment feature; and 
  • privacy statements at bankfirststate.com.

2. HOW WE WILL PROVIDE DISCLOSURES ELECTRONICALLY

All Disclosures will be provided to you electronically in one of several ways. These are either:

A. by Online Banking Message or email at the most current address we have on record,

B. by access to a web site that we will identify in an Online Banking Message or email notice we send to you at the time the information is available, or 

C. to the extent permissible by law, by access to a Web site that we will identify in advance for such purpose. 

3. HOW YOU CAN WITHDRAW CONSENT TO RECEIVE ONLINE STATEMENTS AND DISCLOSURES ELECTRONICALLY

You may withdraw your consent to receive Online Statements and Disclosures electronically for any of your Accounts by either changing your Statement delivery method within the Customer Service tab of Online Banking or by contacting us at 1-800-994-2500. We may treat an invalid email address or the subsequent malfunction of a previously valid address as a withdrawal of your consent to receive Online Statements and Disclosures electronically. We will not charge you a fee to process the withdrawal of your consent, however a monthly service fee to receive paper statements may apply depending on the type of account you own. If you withdraw your consent to receive Online Statements and Disclosures electronically, the withdrawal will become effective after your request is processed.

If you close your primary Account or select the paper statement preference for your primary Account, all Accounts included on that combined statement will revert to delivery of the Disclosures by the U.S. Postal Service. Note, you will no longer have access to Online Statements previously received for closed accounts or on accounts for which the delivery method has been changed to a paper statement. Online Banking customers who receive paper statements will be charged a paper statement fee each analysis cycle.

4. HOW YOU CAN UPDATE YOUR RECORDS

It is your responsibility to provide us with an accurate and complete email address, contact, and other information related to this Disclosure and your Account(s). You must maintain and promptly update this information with any changes. You can update your email address in the Customer Service tab of Online Banking. To update all other information, call us at 1-800-994-2500.

We will not send you a paper copy of any Disclosure unless you request it or we otherwise deem it appropriate to do so.
