SECTION 16. SECURITY AND PROTECTING YOUR ACCOUNT
We are committed to protecting the security and confidentiality of information about you and your Account(s). We use sophisticated technology in the ongoing development of NetTeller and the activities contemplated thereby to enhance this security. We use several different security methods to protect your Account information:
- You can only access NetTeller with certain browsers that have high security standards (see Section 3).
- If we do not recognize your computer, we will ask you one of your challenge questions to verify your identity.
- NetTeller will automatically log off if prolonged periods of inactivity occur.
- You session will be terminated if you navigate from NetTeller to another website.
SECTION 17. BILL PAY
Bill Pay allows you to initiate electronic (ACH/EFT) or check payments from an Eligible Account and must be made in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and any other applicable account agreements. If Merchant is unable to accept electronic payments, then we will process a paper check and send it to the address that you input in the payment criteria and details. Electronic (ACH/EFT) payments can expect to be received by recipient within 2-3 business days. Paper check payments can expect to be received by recipient within 7-10 business days.
Payments: You authorize Bill Pay to debit your Eligible Account and remit funds on your behalf to the Biller. When Bill Pay receives a Payment Instruction, you authorize Bill Pay to debit your Payment Account and remit funds on your behalf so that the funds arrive as close as reasonably possible to the Payment Date as designated by you. You also authorize Bill Pay to credit your Payment Account for payments returned to Bill Pay by the United States Postal Service or Biller.
Scheduling Bill Payments: Payments are scheduled by the process date and the system generates the deliver by date (Estimated date payee should receive payment). Electronic payments are one business day and check payments vary by location of the payee. When entering your Payment Instructions, you will be asked to provide a Process Date. To avoid late fees and other finance charges, the Process Date should be earlier than the actual Due Date of your bill, not the late date and/or a date within the grace period. If it is not, you will be responsible for any late payment fees, finance charges or other action taken by the Biller or us.
The earliest possible Date for each Biller will be pre-filled within the application when you are scheduling the payment. Therefore, the application will not permit you to select a Date earlier than the earliest possible Payment Date designated for each Biller.
Processing of Your Bill Payments: A bill payment is considered "Pending" status starting beginning at the time when you enter Payment Instructions, and then up until when the bill payment is created by the Bill Pay service. A bill payment is processed on the Business Day you designated as the Payment Date.
Canceling and Modifying Bill Payments: You may cancel or edit a payment up until the time it has been sent for processing. A bill payment is available to cancel or modify in your list of Scheduled Payments found in the Bill Payment menu. There is no charge for canceling or editing a Pending Payment. Once the Service has begun processing a payment it cannot be cancelled or edited.
Prohibited Payments: You cannot use Bill Pay to pay any company or person with an address outside the United States or its territories.
Tax and court ordered payments may be scheduled through Bill Pay; however such payments are discouraged and must be scheduled at your own risk. The bank is not responsible for researching these types of payments, in the event they don't process as scheduled. Your use of Bill Pay for the payment of taxes or court mandated fees constitutes your express acknowledgment and agreement that we bear no responsibility for any fees, penalties or interest that might accrue as a result of such payments to process as scheduled.
We also reserve the right to refuse to make payments to certain Billers (“Prohibited Payment”). We will promptly notify you if we decide to refuse to make a payment to a certain Biller. We will not, however, notify you if you attempt to make a Prohibited Payment.
In no event will we be liable for any claims or damages resulting from the scheduling of Prohibited Payments. All service guarantees are void when a Prohibited Payment is scheduled or processed. The Bank has no obligation to research or resolve any claim resulting from a Prohibited Payment. All research and resolution for any misapplied, misposted, or misdirected payments will be the sole responsibility of you and not Bill Pay or the Bank.
Returned Payments: You understand that Billers, payment processors or the United States Postal Service may return bill payments to the Bank for various reasons. These reasons can include, but are not limited to, the following:
- the Biller’s forwarding address has expired;
- the Biller’s account number is not valid;
- the Biller is unable to locate the account; or
- Your account with the Biller is paid in full.
The Bank will use its best efforts to notify you of any Returned Payments. You are responsible for reconciling your Account(s) and reviewing the status of the payments. If we are unable to complete a payment for any reason, we may, by a method of our choosing and at our sole discretion, provide you with notice.
Stop Payment Requests for Bill Pay: A stop payment may only be requested if a check has been issued for your payment and if the check has not cleared. If you desire to stop any payment that has already been processed, you must contact the Bank at (319)283-4000. Although Bill Pay will make every effort to accommodate your request, the Service may not have a reasonable opportunity to act on any stop payment request and the Bank will have no liability for the Service failing to do so. The Bank may also require you to present your request in writing within fourteen (14) calendar days. The charge for each stop payment request will be the current charge for such service as set out in the applicable fee schedule in the agreement governing your accounts with us.
A stop payment cannot be requested if the payment was remitted to your Biller electronically. You should contact your Biller directly to request any payment refund. If you desire assistance with this process, you must contact us at (319)283-4000. Other than as described above, you may not stop or edit a bill payment.
This Agreement does not alter your liability or obligations that currently exist between you and your Billers.
SECTION 18. REMOTE DEPOSIT ANYWHERE
Remote Deposit Anywhere (“RDA” or “Service”) is designed to allow you to make deposits to your checking, savings, or money market accounts from home or other remote locations by scanning checks using your compatible flatbed scanner, or smart phone and iPhone™ or Android™ application software to deliver the images and associated deposit information.

Storage and Destruction: You warrant that you will retain each original check in a secure environment which ensures confidentiality and integrity of check information until the check has been successfully deposited into your account. A successful deposit means that you can view it in your mobile or online transaction history.
