NetConnect Online Banking Security Information

St. Johns Bank and Trust NetConnect Online Banking service is an application provided by Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. utilizes a comprehensive security strategy to protect your accounts and transactions conducted over the Internet. In addition to our log-on security, we use the SSL (secure socket layer) encryption technology for everything you do in the NetConnect Online Banking service. Your browser automatically activates this technology when your browser attempts to connect to our system. Whenever SSL is securing your communications, the browser will typically indicate the "secure session" by changing the appearance of a small icon of a padlock at the bottom of the screen from open to locked. What this means to you is that your communications are scrambled from your browser to our servers at all times so no unauthorized party can read the information as it is carried over the Internet. In addition, we have purchased a "Certificate of Authority" that will assure you that you are actually talking to our servers instead of someone pretending to be us. (If you are using an older browser, such as anything prior to versions 4.0 on Netscape or Internet Explorer, the "Certificate of Authorities" key may be expired and you may need to update it on your browser.)

During your use of the NetConnect Online Banking service, we will pass a "cookie" to your browser for identifying you during the session. We do not (and can not) use our cookies to obtain new information about you. A "cookie" is security data that is given to a browser by a web server that is returned by the browser on subsequent transmissions to identify the user and encryption information. When you log onto the system, this cookie enables us to process multiple transactions during the session without you having to provide your St. Johns Bank and Trust NetConnect Login ID and Password for each individual transaction. When you log off, or after ten minutes, the cookie is no longer accepted and must be renewed by requiring the St. Johns Bank and Trust password to be reentered. A new cookie is used for each session. That way, no one can use the cookie to access your account.

In addition to the security measures described above, there may be other security notices posted on the website regarding security issues. It is your responsibility to read all applicable notices. One of the main security features guarding the use of the NetConnect Online Banking service is the unique combination of your St. Johns Bank and Trust NetConnect Login ID and Password. It is important that you keep your password secret. We will not be liable for any losses resulting from your permitting other persons to use your St. Johns Bank and Trust NetConnect Login ID and Password to access the system.

The Bank may also require certain users to utilize a Security Token to access NetConnect. A Security Token as a small, portable device that generates a one-time digital code to use each time you log in to NetConnect. This helps ensure that your information is secure and protects you from fraud and identity theft.

St. Johns Bank and Trust cannot and does not guarantee that downloads from our site will not contain a virus or other destructive devices.

You understand and agree that use of or connection to the Internet is inherently insecure and that connection to the Internet provides opportunity for unauthorized access by a third party to your computer systems, networks, and any and all information stored therein. You understand that the technical processing and transmission via NetConnect Online Banking, including the content concerning your account may involve (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices. All information transmitted and received through the Internet is subject to unauthorized interception, diversion, corruption, loss, access, and disclosure. We shall not be responsible for any adverse consequences whatsoever of your connection to or use of the Internet, and shall not be responsible for any use by you of an Internet connection in violation of any law, rule, or regulation or any violation of the intellectual property rights of another.

If you have more questions about our security systems for conducting transactions safely over the Internet, call us at (314) 428-1059, extension 3025 or email us at customerservice@stjohnsbank.com, and a banking representative will discuss available options with you.

Enrollment Process

In order to enroll in the St. Johns Bank and Trust NetConnect Online Banking service, individual (or non-business) customers and sole proprietors should complete and submit a secure NetConnect Online Banking Personal Application online and business customers should manually complete and sign the NetConnect OnLine Banking Business Application and return it to the Bank. The Customer Service department will verify the information you submit for accuracy and authorizations. You will be notified by postal mail of your assigned St. Johns Bank and Trust NetConnect Login ID and your temporary password will be emailed to the address you have specified.

You will be able to access any account on which you are a primary, joint or sole owner, or trustee. If you desire services that allow you to initiate payments or transfers from the account, you will need the required withdrawal authority over the account to be able to complete the transaction. By using the service, you agree to maintain one or more accounts with us and to keep sufficient balances in any account to cover any transaction and fees that are ultimately approved by or related to the system. If the accounts are jointly held or have multiple signers, you agree that access to the information and all transactions initiated by the use of your NetConnect Login ID and Password are authorized unless we have been notified to cancel the service.

Login Security 

Security is very important to the NetConnect Online Banking service. At the time you request the service, you will be assigned a unique NetConnect Login ID and Password that will be used to gain access to the system. Prior to activation, our customer service department will verify your identity and account authorization. In addition, we may require the use of a Security Token device for all of your users.

To help prevent unauthorized access and ensure the security of your accounts, we will end your NetConnect Online Banking session if we have detected no activity for ten (10) minutes. This is to protect you in case you leave your computer unattended after you have logged on. When you return to your computer, you will be prompted to continue or close the browser. If you wish to continue, you will be prompted to re-enter your NetConnect Login ID and Password and establish a new session.

Password

For security purposes, you are required to change your NetConnect Password when you first log in to NetConnect Online Banking. Your NetConnect Password must be from six (6) to twenty five (25) characters in length, and requires both alpha and numeric characters. The identity of your NetConnect Password is not communicated to us. You agree that we are authorized to act on instructions received under your NetConnect Password, notwithstanding any dual or multiple signature requirements identified on the signature card or other documents related to your accounts. You accept responsibility for the confidentiality and security of your password and agree to change your password regularly. If there are three unsuccessful login attempts, your access to NetConnect Online Banking will be revoked. You may contact the bank to have your NetConnect Password reset or to obtain a new temporary password. You may reset your own NetConnect Password if you have already established a question and answer under the Options section. If you permit any other person to use your NetConnect Password, you will have authorized that person to access your Accessible Accounts, and you are responsible for any transactions that person initiates or authorizes.

Because your St. Johns Bank and Trust NetConnect Password is used to access your Accessible Accounts, you should treat it as you would any other sensitive personal data. You should carefully select a NetConnect Password that is difficult to guess. Memorize your NetConnect Password, keep it safe and never tell it to anyone. You agree that the use of your NetConnect Password is the agreed security procedure to access NetConnect Online Banking and that such security is commercially reasonable.

Service Hours

NetConnect Online Banking is available three hundred sixty-five (365) days a year, twenty-four (24) hours a day, subject to an emergency or scheduled system maintenance when some or all of the services may not be available. To the extent we have knowledge of such lack of availability and are able to access the website, we agree to post notice of any extended periods of non-availability on the NetConnect Online Banking website. We will not be liable to you if you are not able to access NetConnect Online Banking for any reason whatsoever.

If you want to limit the accounts linked to NetConnect Online Banking, call us at (314) 428-1059, extension 3025 or contact us by using the Contact Option available on the NetConnect Online Banking webpage, and a banking representative will discuss available options with you.

Transfers

  • Processing of Transfer Requests
    • You may transfer funds between your Accessible Accounts. Transfers can be scheduled as either one-time or recurring. One-time transfers can be scheduled as immediate or future-dated. The completion of a transfer is subject to the availability of sufficient funds at the time of final processing. If you do not have available funds, you may incur an Insufficient Fund (NSF) fee. Refer to the applicable account agreement and fee schedule for details.
    • If funds are not available when a recurring or future dated transfer is scheduled to process, we will attempt to process this transfer for three consecutive business days. If funds are not available at that time, the transfer will not take place, subject to the terms of the account agreement and our discretion.
  • Cut-off Times for Transfers
    • Transfers you submit for a deposit account (checking, savings or money market deposit) or Line of Credit are reflected immediately in your available balance for that account. Transfers entered before the cut-off time of 6:00 p.m. Central Standard Time (CST) on a bank business day are processed on the same bank business day. Transfers entered after the cut-off time or on a non-bank business day are processed on the next bank business day. In order for transferred funds to be available to pay items that are processed against your account overnight, they must be entered before the cut-off time of 6:00 p.m. CST.
  • Transfers from Money Market Deposit and Savings Accounts
    • Federal regulations limit the number of preauthorized electronic fund transfers and telephone transfers – including NetConnect Online Banking transactions – from money market deposit and savings accounts. You are limited to six (6) preauthorized electronic fund transfers, telephone transfers, checks and point of sale transactions each four (4) week or similar period. Each bill payment through NetConnect Online Banking from your money market account is counted as one (1) of the six (6) limited transfers you are permitted each statement period. Each transfer through NetConnect Online Banking from your Money Market Account or Savings Account to one of your other St. Johns Bank and Trust Accessible Accounts is counted as one of the six (6) limited transfers you are permitted each statement period. We charge a fee for each transaction in excess of this limit. We recommend that you do not use a money market account as your bill payment account because of these restrictions. Please refer to your account disclosures.

NetConnect Bill Pay Processing

St. Johns Bank and Trust customers with a checking deposit account may use the bill pay service to:

  • Schedule payments from linked checking and money market accounts.
  • Payments can be scheduled as one-time transactions, up to a year in advance, or as recurring payments. If payments are scheduled ninety (90) days or more in advance, please be aware that St. Johns Bank and Trust may cancel your bill pay service if you have not paid a bill for ninety (90) days.
  • Payments entered before 12:00 noon CST on a bank business day will be scheduled and begin processing on the same bank business day. Payments entered after the cut-off time or on a non-bank business day are processed on the next bank business day.
  • Recurring payments that fall on a weekend or a non-bank business day will be processed on the prior bank business day.
  • You authorize us to make payments by either electronic transmission or by paper draft. The paper draft will be drawn on the account you designate.
  • Any obligations that you wish to pay through NetConnect Online Banking bill pay must be payable in U.S. dollars to a payee located in the United States. You may not make payments of alimony, maintenance, child support, taxes, or other governmental fees or court directed payments through this service. We reserve the right to refuse to pay any payee designated by you. If we do so, we will notify you promptly.
  • We will not be liable to you if a payee cannot or will not accept a payment through this service. You agree to notify us promptly if you receive notice from a payee that a payment you made using the bill pay service has not been completed or remains unpaid. We will not be liable to you for any damages to the extent that your failure or delay in notifying us that a bill payment was not made prevents us from avoiding or alleviating such damages.

Scheduling Bill Payments

  • The scheduled payment date is the date you enter for the payment to be sent to the payee. For payments made by electronic transmission, the payment amount will be debited from, or charged to the account that you designate on the scheduled date. If the scheduled date is a weekend or non-bank business day, the payment will be processed the prior bank business day. For payment made by paper draft, the account you designate will be debited when the draft is presented for payment. This may be on or after the scheduled payment date.
  • When you schedule a payment, please allow adequate time for delivery and receipt of your payment. If you do not, or if for any reason your account is not in good standing, you will be responsible for all late fees, finance charges, penalties or default assessed by the payee. If you have scheduled a payment that will be sent electronically and you do not have the funds available on the payment date, the payment will continue to attempt to post until you have sufficient funds, or you delete the payment. You will not be assessed an Insufficient Funds fee. If a paper draft is initiated or future dated and there are no funds available on the payment date, a check will be generated anyway. If the balance is insufficient to pay the draft on the day it is presented for payment, an Insufficient Funds fee will be assessed and the item may be returned unpaid.

Canceling Transfers and Payments

  • Bill Payments
    • You may cancel a payment by signing into the NetConnect Online Banking system, and following the instructions provided on the bill pay screens.
    • Future dated payments can be canceled prior to 12:00 noon CST of the scheduled payment date.
    • Future dated bill payments can be cancelled by signing into the NetConnect Online Banking system, selecting the payment, and deleting.

Telephone us at (314) 428-1059, extension 3025, or write us at 8924 St. Charles Rock Road, St. Louis, MO 63114 as soon as possible, if you think:

  • Your statement or receipt is wrong.
  • You need more information about a transfer listed on the statement.
  • An unauthorized person has discovered your NetConnect Login ID or Password.
  • Someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission.
  • Bill Pay transactions have been made without your authorization.

We must hear from you no later than sixty (60) days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.

If you tell us verbally, we may require you to send us your complaint or question in writing or via NetConnect Online Banking secure message within ten (10) bank business days. When you contact us, please provide the following information:

  • Your name and account number.
  • The date and dollar amount of the transaction in question.
  • The name of the Payee if the transaction in question is a payment.
  • The transaction number assigned by NetConnect Online Banking, if available.
  • A description of the transaction about which you are unsure.

Please explain, as clearly as you can, why you believe there is an error or why you need more information.

We will determine whether an error occurred within ten (10) business days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to forty-five (45) days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within ten (10) business days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within ten (10) business days, we may not credit your account.

If a notice of error involves an electronic funds transfer that occurred within thirty (30) days after the first deposit to the account was made, the error involves a new account. For errors involving new accounts, point of sale debit card transactions, or foreign-initiated transactions, we may take up to ninety (90) days to investigate your complaint or question. For new accounts, we may take up to twenty (20) business days to credit your account for the amount you think is in error.

We will tell you the results within three (3) business days after completing our investigation. If we decide there was no error, we will send you a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.

Limitation of Liability

Tell us at once if you believe your NetConnect Login ID or Password has been compromised or if someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission. The best way to minimize your loss is to call us immediately.

If you notify us within two (2) business days, you can lose no more than Fifty and 00/100 Dollars ($50.00) if someone used your password without your permission. If you do NOT notify us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your password, and we can prove that we could have stopped someone from using your password without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as Five Hundred and 00/100 Dollars ($500.00).

You will have no liability for unauthorized transactions if you notify us within sixty (60) days after the statement showing the transaction has been mailed to you. If you do not, you may not get back any of the money from any unauthorized transaction that occurs after the close of the sixty (60) day period, if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had notified us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we may extend the time periods.

Transactions that you or someone acting with you initiates with fraudulent intent are also authorized transactions.

By using NetConnect Online Banking, you acknowledge and agree that this Agreement sets forth security procedures for electronic banking transactions that are commercially reasonable. You agree to be bound by instructions, whether authorized or unauthorized, which we implement in compliance with these procedures, unless you have given us prior notice of possible unauthorized use as described above (and we had a reasonable opportunity to act on such notice).

Limitation of Bank’s Liability

If we fail or delay in making a payment or transfer pursuant to your instructions, or if we make a payment or transfer in an erroneous amount that is less than the amount per your instructions, unless otherwise required by law, our liability shall be limited to interest on the amount that we failed to timely pay or transfer, calculated from the date on which the payment or transfer was to be made until the date it was actually made or you canceled the instructions. We may pay such interest either to you or the intended recipient of the payment or transfer, but in no event will we be liable to both parties, and our payment to either party will fully discharge any obligation to the other. If we make a payment or transfer in an erroneous amount that exceeds the amount per your instructions, or if we permit an unauthorized payment or transfer after we have had a reasonable time to act on a notice from you of possible unauthorized use as described above, unless otherwise required by law, our liability will be limited to a refund of the amount erroneously paid or transferred, plus interest thereon from the date of the payment or transfer to the date of the refund, but in no event to exceed sixty (60) days’ interest. If we become liable to you for interest compensation under this Agreement or applicable law, such interest shall be calculated based on the average federal funds rate at the Federal Reserve Bank in the district where St. Johns Bank and Trust is headquartered for each day interest is due, computed on the basis of a three hundred sixty (360) day year. Unless otherwise required by law, in no event will St. Johns Bank and Trust be liable to you for special, indirect or consequential damages including, without limitation, lost profits or attorney’s fees, even if we are advised in advance of the possibility of such damages.

Additional Service Intended for Businesses

Creating and Managing Users

Cash Management users may add additional users to your NetConnect Login ID and they will all share the same NetConnect Login ID and Password. The authority levels for each account are assigned to each user by the Company Administrator. If you use a Security Token device to access NetConnect, each user will have their own unique Login ID and Password.

You agree that, by granting access to your NetConnect Login ID and Password, you will be allowing a user to transfer funds, perform account maintenance and view account transactions for the linked account. If you select the bill pay feature, that NetConnect Login ID user will automatically have full access to all bill pay features. If you or any person you have given the NetConnect Login ID and Password to are no longer a person authorized on the signature card for each linked account to designate signers for each such account, the business has the obligation to change the password and inform St. Johns Bank and Trust NetConnect OnLine Banking Services of the new individual or individuals with such authority. Such notice must be given separately from any other notices given to other St. Johns Bank and Trust departments or branches by calling us at (314) 428-1059, extension 3025. You may also write us at: St. Johns Bank and Trust, Customer Service Department, 8924 St. Charles Rock Road, St. Louis, MO 63114.

St. Johns Bank and Trust will have no liability to you for unauthorized payments and transfers made using the passwords you assign that occur before you have notified us of possible unauthorized use and we have had a reasonable opportunity to act on that notice.
