You will gain access to your Online Accounts through the use of your Internet-enabled device, your Internet Service Provider, your User ID and Password. For security purposes, you will be required to change your Password the first time you enter NetTeller™ . You will determine your new Password. We will not know your new Password.
The Password you select must be 6-8 characters long. For greater Password security, we recommend that you do not choose a Password reflecting commonly known information about you or family members, such as birth dates, children's names, parts of Social Security numbers, or repetitive numbers (all 2's or 9's, for example). Also, do not write your Password where it can be easily found. In addition, we recommend that you use both upper and lower case letters, as well as numeric and special characters, in your Password.
Use of Your Security Password
You agree not to allow anyone else to gain access to the Services or to let anyone know your Password used with the Services.

Banking Transactions with NetTeller™
In addition to viewing account information, you may use NetTeller™ to:
- Transfer funds between your checking and savings accounts (NOTE: Because regulations require The Neffs National Bank to limit preauthorized transfers (including NetTeller™ transfers), you can make no more than six transfers from your statement savings account per month by any combination of preauthorized or automatic transfer or by telephone or NetTeller™);
- Make payments from your checking and savings accounts to linked loan accounts;
- Transfer funds from your home equity line of credit to your checking or savings account;
- Stop payment on checks you have written.
New services may be introduced for NetTeller™ from time to time. We will notify you of the existence of these new services. By using these services when they become available, you agree to be bound by the rules, which will be made available to you concerning these services.
Bill Payment Services
The Bill Payment service is provided by Jack Henry & Associates ("JHA"). The Bill Payment service permits you to use your Internet-enabled device to direct payments from your designated online Bill Payment Account to third parties you wish to pay. Your Bill Payment Account must be a checking account. You may designate multiple Bill Payment accounts. Through the Bill Payment service, you can pay bills from your Bill Payment Account to businesses or individuals in amounts ranging from $1.00 to $24,999.99. While The Neffs National Bank coordinates the Bill Payment service with JHA, JHA performs all functions in connection with the Bill Payment service. By using the Bill Payment service, you acknowledge and agree that JHA is solely responsible for administration of the Bill Payment service.
All payments you make will be deducted from the account that you designate for that payment. Any payments you wish to make through this service must be payable in U.S. dollars to a payee located in the continental United States. JHA reserves the right to restrict types of payees to whom payments may be made using the service from time to time. You should not use the Bill Payment service for the following types of payments:
- Securities purchases;
- Collection agencies;
- Court ordered payments (alimony, child support, speeding ticket, etc.);
- Payees outside of the continental United States ;
- Payees located in Armed Forces postal codes (AE, AP, etc.);
Payments to these types of payees will be your sole responsibility if delayed or improperly processed or credited.
Funds must be available in your Bill Payment Account on the scheduled payment date. If the date you schedule a payment to be initiated falls on a non-business day (Saturday, Sunday or holiday), funds must be available in your Bill Payment Account the following business day (e.g., Monday). After funds are withdrawn from your Bill Payment Account to make a payment, Bill Payment may make the payment either by transferring funds electronically to the payee or by mailing the payee a check.
You may choose to schedule payments to recur in the same amount at regular weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, semi-monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual intervals (a "recurring payment"). If a recurring payment is chosen, the bill will be paid automatically each billing period. If the payment is not a recurring payment, it will be a "one-time payment". One-time payments are not made until you enter the amount of the current bill. You may also change or skip payments that are recurring payments. However, you must allow at least three (3) business days after we receive any change to information you have given us about a payee for JHA to reflect the change in its records.
When you create a new payee in the Bill Payment service, it has a temporary status until JHA has had sufficient time to set up the account, and for your business payees, verify information about your account. You should schedule a payment to a new payee at least ten (10) business days before any payment due date, to allow JHA time to set up the payee and verify information about your account with the payee.
For all subsequent payments, you agree to allow at least five (5) business days between the date you schedule a payment to be initiated and the payment due date (that is, the due date shown on your invoice or provided in your agreement with the payee, not taking into account any applicable grace period). If you do not, you will be fully responsible for all late fees, finance charges or other action taken by the payee. If you schedule your payment and follow all instructions provided, but the payee does not receive the payment in a timely manner, JHA and The Neffs National Bank will work with the payee on your behalf to attempt to have any late fees or charges reversed.
JHA and The Neffs National Bank are only responsible for exercising ordinary care in processing and sending payments upon your authorization in accordance with this Agreement. JHA and The Neffs National Bank will not be liable in any way for damages you incur:
- If you do not have sufficient funds in your Bill Payment Account to make the payment on the processing date;
- If your Bill Payment Account becomes closed by the processing date;
- For delays in mail delivery;
- For changes to the payee's address, account number, or other information necessary to process a payment, unless you have advised us of the change sufficiently in advance;
- For the failure of any payee to correctly account for or credit the payment in a timely manner;
- If you request a payment that falls outside the minimum or maximum bill payment dollar limits;
- If you have not properly followed instructions on how to make a transfer or bill payment;
- If your equipment/software were not working properly when you attempted to authorize a transfer or bill payment;
- If we or our agent reasonably believes that an online transaction was not completed;
- If withdrawals from your Bill Payment Account have been prohibited by court order, such as a garnishment or other legal process; or
- For any other circumstances beyond the reasonable control of JHA and The Neffs National Bank or their respective agents, such as computer failure, telecommunication outages, postal strikes/other labor unrest, fires, floods, and other natural disasters.
Payments made through the Bill Payment service are processed at 2:00 a.m. EST and 12:00 p.m. EST . Payments scheduled before 12:00 p.m. EST are considered effective on that business day. Otherwise, it will be considered received on the following business day. For all entries made using the service, the time recorded by the NetTeller™ service takes precedence.
If your Bill Payment Account does not have sufficient funds to make a payment as of the date the transfer or payment is attempted or scheduled to be made, the transfer or payment will be attempted until the funds are made available. For recurring payments, the payment will be attempted until the date of the next scheduled payment. In all cases, you are responsible for either making alternate arrangements for the payment or rescheduling the payment through the Service.
Payments must be changed or cancelled using the service at least two business days prior to 12:00 p.m. EST of the scheduled payment date. If you ask us to cancel a payment after it is issued and we agree to do so, we may charge you a stop payment fee. Stop payment orders will be in effect for a period of six months. After six months, any stop payment order will terminate and must be renewed in order to continue in effect. The Neffs National Bank may pay any item that is presented following the lapse of any stop payment order.
If you send us an electronic mail message, we will be deemed to have received it on the following business day. We will have a reasonable time to act on your e-mail.
You should not rely on electronic mail if you need to communicate with us immediately; for example, if you need to report an unauthorized transaction from one of your accounts or if you need to stop a payment that is scheduled to occur.
You agree that we may respond to you by secure electronic mail with regard to any matter related to the Service, including responding to any claim of unauthorized electronic funds transfer that you make. Any such electronic mail we send to you shall be considered received within three (3) days of the date we sent it, regardless of whether or not you sign on to the Service within that time frame.
In addition to this Agreement, you and The Neffs National Bank agree to be bound by and comply with the requirements of the agreements applicable to each of your Online Accounts. Your use of the NetTeller™ service or the Bill Payment service is your acknowledgment that you have received these agreements and intend to be bound by them. You should review other disclosures received by you when you open your accounts or request additional account services with us including the charges that may be imposed for electronic funds transfers or the right to make transfers listed in the fee schedules accompanying those disclosures and the fee schedule at the end of this Agreement. We will automatically deduct the fees, if any, related to this Service from your Bill Payment account each month.
