DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY
Use of the Services requires a computer and modem (in this Agreement, your computer and all related equipment are referred to as your "Computer") connected through an Internet Service Provider with a Web browser (Netscape Navigator 4.08 or higher, Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 or higher, or AOL 4.0 or higher).
To provide the highest degree of confidentiality and security, we require the use of browsers that provide encryption using a 128-bit key. The higher the level of encryption, the harder it is for unauthorized persons to read information. Commercial off-the-shelf browsers typically support 40-bit encryption. Many browser suppliers (Netscape Navigator browser and Microsoft Explorer browser) offer special 128-bit encryption versions, available for download from their respective Web sites.
We require you protect your financial information by using the most secure encryption possible, and we specifically disclaim any and all responsibility for losses resulting from your use of 40-bit encryption. Use of the Services cannot be achieved with 40-bit encryption.
ACCESS CODE CONFIDENTIALITY
Use of the Services requires at least one eligible deposit or loan account with us. Use of our Bill Pay Service requires at least one eligible checking account with us. If you have more than one account relationship with us, we will "link" your account relationships together with your primary checking account, unless you request in writing that certain accounts not be linked. Accounts which are "linked" under the Services will have one common owner and signer. Any signer, acting alone, must be authorized to access a linked account. Any non-linked account will not be accessible through the Services. An account that requires two or more signatures to make withdrawals, transfers or transactions may not be designated as an eligible account.
You will need an Access ID and a PIN. Your Access ID is your primary account number. The PIN is a confidential personal identification number. Your initial PIN will be the PIN that you use for the Financial Freedom Telephone Banking System. Upon entering the site for the first time, you will be required to choose a new PIN. You will have access to any of your deposit or loan accounts with us associated with your Access ID.
All electronic communications that we receive from you on the Libertybank.net site that meet these identity requirements will be deemed valid, authentic and binding obligations. You intend and agree that these electronic communications will be given the same legal effect as your written and signed paper communications, will be considered a “writing” or “in writing” and will be deemed for all purposes (i) to have been “signed” and (ii) to constitute an “original” when printed from electronic files or records established and maintained in the normal course of business. You agree that electronic copies of communications are valid and you will not contest the validity or enforceability of such transactions, absent proof of altered data or tampering, under the provisions of any applicable law relating to whether certain agreements are to be in writing or signed by the party to be bound thereby and shall be admissible if introduced as evidence on paper in any judicial, arbitration, mediation, or administrative proceeding to the same extent and under the same conditions as other business records originated and maintained in documentary form.
You agree to keep your Bank Access ID and PIN confidential to prevent unauthorized access to your account(s), and to prevent unauthorized use of the Services. We recommend that you memorize your Bank Access ID and PIN and do not write them down. You agree not to give or make available your Bank Access ID and PIN to any unauthorized individual.
If you believe the security of your Bank Access ID and PIN has been compromised in any way (for example, your PIN has been lost or stolen, someone has attempted to use the Services without your consent, your accounts have been accessed, or someone has transferred money without your permission), you must notify us immediately (See REPORTING UNAUTHORIZED TRANSACTIONS/YOUR RESPONSIBILITY AND LIABILITY).
We reserve the right, under certain circumstances, to deny access to any one or more deposit and/or loan account(s) or to the Services, or to deny the processing of transactions, in order to maintain or restore security to our Site and systems. We may do so if we reasonably believe your Bank Access ID or PIN have been or may be obtained or are being used or may be used by an unauthorized person(s).
If you close your primary checking account, your Bill Pay Services will end and any unprocessed bill payment transactions will be cancelled.
We also provide E-mail as a means of communication with us. You may ask questions about your account(s) or maintenance and/or problem resolution issues, or to give comments regarding your satisfaction with your banking service. E-MAIL IS NOT A SECURE METHOD OF COMMUNICATION OVER THE INTERNET AND WE RECOMMEND YOU DO NOT SEND CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION BY E-MAIL. We recommend all communication be sent via secure messaging, available through the Service. YOU CANNOT USE E-MAIL TO INITIATE TRANSACTIONS ON YOUR ACCOUNT(S). For banking transactions, please use the appropriate functions available through the Services or call Customer Service at 240-5100 inside the New Orleans area or 1-800-883-3943 outside the New Orleans area.
