Question #2
Is the Internet safe and secure for online banking?

Answer:
Yes. This is a common concern with banking and commerce on the Internet. Data on the Internet is safeguarded by encryption as it moves between systems. Data residing on a system can only be accessed by using an authorized sign-on ID and password.

Any kind of breach in the security of our systems would be a serious business issue for the Bank. Our success depends on our ability to manage these systems safely and to continue to earn your trust as our customer. Please be assured that we will take every measure possible to protect your financial information and resources you have entrusted to us.

You can help safeguard your information and the banking systems by protecting your Sign-On ID and password. A proper combination of your Sign-On ID and password is the only way to get access into your account. Please be careful to keep this information secure.

Question #4
What if Online Banking goes down? Will my payments be made, will my transfers go through?

Answer:
If Online Banking and all of our back up systems were to go down, you can be comfortable that any transaction for which you had already processed, prior to the system going down, will go through. If you were in the middle of a transaction and there is some question as to whether the system has received the request, you may feel free to contact the Bank to ensure your transaction request has been accepted.
