For purposes of this Agreement, an “Eligible Account” is a personal or commercial checking, money market, savings, or time deposit account for which you are an authorized signer, and for which, according to our records, you have authority, acting alone, to conduct all depositor-initiated transactions on such account; or a consumer or mortgage loan on which you are a borrower. You must have at least one Eligible Account with us and access to the Internet in order to use Online Services. If you are an authorized signer or borrower on more than one Eligible Account, we will automatically link such additional Eligible Accounts (collectively ‘Linked Accounts”) to your Online Service access. If you have additional eligible personal accounts that do not show when you access Online Services, please call us at 662-283-3231 or write us at Bank of Winona, Customer Service, P O Box 231 Winona, MS 38967, to update your linked accounts. Accounts that are not Linked Accounts will not be accessible through Online Services.
The following services are available through the System:
a) Account Information. Obtain balance and transaction information about your Linked Accounts. Please note that balance information may not reflect outstanding checks, recent debit card or ATM transactions. Balances may also be subject to a hold (which will not necessarily be evident from the Online Services, but which you would have received written notice of when it was placed). Please also note that online transaction history for Eligible Accounts is limited; you may need to check the statements that we have previously sent you for information beyond the first day covered by the online transaction history. You may download your Linked Account(s) information into software such as Excel or Microsoft Money®.
b) Funds Transfers. Transfer money between Linked Accounts with us. You may schedule transfers to be initiated on the current Business Day, on a future date, or on the same date of each month, subject to the restrictions of this Agreement and other agreements between you and the Bank (including, but not limited to those contained in the Deposit Account Agreement that limit the number of transfers that may be made from your account during any monthly period). Although you can enter transfer information through the online services twenty-four (24) hours a day, seven (7) days a week, transfers can be initiated by the Bank only on Business Days. Funds will be deducted from your account on the Business Day for which you direct the transfer to be initiated by the Bank. This date is referred to in this Agreement as the “Transaction Date.” If the date that you designate as the Transaction Date is not a Business Day, the Transaction Date will be deemed to be the Business Day following the date that you have designated. Your transfer instructions must be received by the Bank not later than Internet Banking cut-off time on any Business Day in order for the transaction to be completed on that Business Day. If your instructions for a ‘same day’ transfer are received after the Internet Banking cut-off time or on a day that is not a Business Day, you will be deemed to have directed that the transfer occur on the following Business Day. Recurring transfers are those made for the same amount and are made on a weekly, bi-monthly, monthly or other periodic basis. Once started, recurring transfers will be made automatically unless you tell us to stop or cancel the Service in the manner provided below and, in such case, following a period of time that will give us a reasonable opportunity to act on your request. You may cancel or edit any transfer Instructions by following the directions provided in the on-line screen for the transfer services.
Pursuant to federal law, you may perform no more than six funds transfers, payments or preauthorized withdrawals per month from any money market account. If you exceed the maximum number of allowable transfers, payments or preauthorized withdrawals on any money market account, the Bank will take such steps, as it reasonably deems necessary to ensure your future compliance with allowable transfer limits, including terminating your Online Services. Allowable transfers and withdrawals from any savings account are limited to a maximum of three per month. Additionally, excess withdrawals are subject to a per transaction excess withdrawal fee as set forth in our schedule of fees and services, as amended from time to time.
Subject to the below specified provisions related to funds transfers and the terms of this Agreement, you may initiate transfers of funds between Accounts at the Bank. If, however, the Account from which you are transferring funds is subject to limitations on the number of withdrawals permitted per month or per statement period, you must observe those limitations. If an Account is subject to such limitations, those limitations will be stated in the account disclosures given to you.
- You agree that Bank may act upon any funds transfer request that is made using your User Code and Password, whether or not the person initiating the request has the authority to do so.
- Bank will act upon a funds transfer request per the Internet Banking cut-off time rules stated above by making applicable accounting entries. Any funds transfer received by Bank after the applicable Cut-off deadline on a Business Day will be treated as received by Bank on its next Business Day.
- Bank may reject any funds transfer request, which, either in whole or in part, exceeds the collected and available funds on deposit with bank in the applicable account. Bank, at its sole option, may (but is not required to) create an overdraft to complete a funds transfer, and you agree to repay Bank immediately, the amount of the overdraft, whether or not demand is made. Bank is not obligated, however, to create any additional overdrafts or to give any notice that additional overdrafts will not be created, regardless of how many overdrafts may have been created previously.
- You shall have no right to cancel or amend a funds transfer request after its receipt by Bank. If, however, Bank receives a request to cancel or amend a funds transfer, Bank, at its option, may (but is not required to) make a reasonable effort to attempt to cancel or amend the transaction if Bank has not yet acted upon the request.
- The monthly or periodic statements issued on the Account will reflect internal and external transfers. You agree to notify the Bank within a reasonable time, not to exceed 30 calendar days, after receipt of the statement of any discrepancy between your records and the information in the statement. Your failure to provide such notice relieves the Bank of any responsibility to correct the same, of any liability as to such discrepancies, and of any liability for damages resulting therefrom.
d) Customer Service. For additional information or assistance, please call the Bank’s Customer Service Department at 662-283-3231 or send us a letter to Bank of Winona P O Box 231 Winona, MS 38967. We have a staff of customer care representatives waiting to assist you on Business Days, except bank holidays, during Customer Service hours. Additionally, you may communicate with the Bank using a personal computer to send and receive written messages electronically (Internet e-mail) outside of the Online Services screen. This method is very effective for request of additional information, questions, comments and other miscellaneous correspondence.

The arbitration procedures shall be concluded, and the Arbitrator’s award issued no later than six (6) months after selection of the Arbitrator.
(b) The institution and maintenance of an action for judicial relief shall not constitute a waiver of the right of Customer, Bank or any Covered Person including the plaintiff, to invoke this Agreement and thereby require that the Claim be submitted to arbitration.

Discovery. The Arbitrator shall have the power to authorize reasonable discovery and to issue any necessary orders and subpoenas. All discovery shall be submitted and expedited to the maximum extent practicable.
