Online Banking can be used to access all Justin State Bank accounts owned by you. You can add or delete any of your Justin State Bank accounts from this Agreement by notifying the Bank.

We undertake no obligation to monitor transactions through Online Banking to determine that they are made on behalf of the account holder.
Online Banking Services – You can use Online Banking to check the balance of your Justin State Bank accounts, view account histories, transfer funds between eligible accounts, view statements, create alerts, and pay bills from your Justin State Bank accounts in the amounts and on the date you request if you have applied for the use of Bill Pay Services.
Hours of Access – You can use Online Banking seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day, although some or all Online Banking services may not be available occasionally due to emergency or scheduled system maintenance. We agree to post notice of any extended periods of non-availability on the Online Banking website.
Your Password – For security purposes, you are required to change your password upon your initial login to Online Banking. You determine what password you will use and the identity of your password is not communicated to us. You agree that we are authorized to act on instructions received under your password. You accept responsibility for the confidentiality and security of your password. Upon three unsuccessful attempts to use your password, your access to Online Banking will be revoked. To re-establish your authorization to Online Banking, you must contact us to have your password reset or to obtain a new temporary password.
We require that you create a complex password that contains both upper and lower case alpha and numeric characters for security purpose. Your password should not be associated with any commonly known personal identification, such as social security numbers, address, date of birth, names of children, and should be memorized rather than written down.
Security – You understand the importance of your role in preventing misuse of your accounts through Online Banking and you agree to promptly examine your periodic statement for each of your Justin State Bank accounts as soon as you receive it. You agree to protect the confidentiality of your account number, and your personal identification information, such as your driver’s license number and social security number. You understand that personal identification information by itself, or together with information related to your account, may allow unauthorized access to your account. Your password and login ID are intended to provide security against unauthorized entry and access to your accounts.

Fraud Awareness – Justin State Bank is committed to educating our customers to the latest threats of identity theft and fraudulent activities. Below is some information to help educate you about fraud:
- Computers, Mobile Phones, and other Devices with Online capabilities are susceptible to viruses. You are responsible to ensure that your Device is protected from and free of viruses, worms, Trojan horses, or other similar harmful components (collectively referred to as “viruses”) which could result in damage to programs, files, and/or your phone or could result in information being intercepted by a third party. The Bank will not be responsible or liable for any indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages which may result from such viruses.
- Phishing is a high tech Online scam where fraudsters impersonate a business to trick you into giving out your personal information. Do not reply to email, text, or pop-up messages that ask for your personal or financial information.
- Do not click on links within these emails, text, or pop-up messages either – even if the message seems to be from an organization you trust. Identity thieves can imitate a legitimate organization using stolen logos and graphics.
- These links may contain malicious software (malware) that contain computer viruses and spyware that get installed on your computer, phone, or mobile device without your consent. Criminals use malware to steal personal information, send spam, and commit fraud.
Fraud is not limited to individuals and it can occur with businesses as well. Corporate Account Takeover is a type of corporate identity theft in which cyber-thieves steal a business’ valid Online Banking credentials to initiate funds out of the compromised business’ account by ACH or wire transfer to the bank account of associates within the U.S. or directly overseas. In some cases, the perpetrator may also be able to gain access to and review the business’ account details, such as account balances, activities and patterns, enabling the perpetrator to mimic the legitimate users and initiate transactions undetected.
