Your checking and savings accounts are governed by Adrian Bank’s Deposit Account Agreement, Truth-in-Savings Disclosures, Funds Availability Disclosure, Electronic Funds Transfer Act Disclosure, and Privacy Disclosure which are provided to you at account opening.


For the purposes of this Agreement, the term “Online Banking” refers to our online banking service that allows you to transfer funds, access accounts, obtain information and perform other transactions, and “Bill Pay-e Plus” that allows you to make payments over the Internet by use of a personal computer, modem and/or other means we authorize or allow. The term “You” refers to Adrian Bank customers who have applied and been given access to Online Banking. The term “Online Banking ID” refers to the identification number that you receive to access Online Banking on the Internet. The term “Online Banking password” refers to the personal identification number that you select to access Online Banking on the Internet.


To access our Online Banking service via the Internet, you must use the Online Banking Username that is assigned to you, together with an Online Banking password. Your password is personal to you, even if other account owners have the same right to access the accounts through Online Banking with their own passwords. You should not share your Online Banking Username or Online Banking Password with others. Anyone to whom you give your Online Banking Username and Password will have the same access to your accounts as you do, even if you attempt to limit that person’s authority. We will not pass any of your account numbers over the Internet, nor will any of our employees ask you for any account numbers over the Internet.

Express Telebanking And Online Banking Internet Banking Transactions

You or someone you have authorized by giving them your Online Banking Username and password, or other means of access (even if that person exceeds the authority you have given them), can instruct us to perform the following transactions through Online Banking services:

1.        Make transfers between your qualifying accounts:

2.        Obtain information that we make available about your qualifying accounts; and

3.        Perform other transactions that are available or authorized under Online Banking services.

Online Banking Internet Banking Transactions

You must have enough available money or credit in any account from which you instruct us to make a payment or transfer. Your ability to transfer funds between certain accounts is limited by Federal and/or State law, as indicated in the account disclosures provided to you at account opening. Certain accounts may be money market or savings accounts and withdrawals or transfers from these accounts are limited to a total of no more than six (6) pre-authorized automatic, electronic or telephone transfers per calendar month, statement cycle, or similar period of at least four weeks. The kinds of transfers and withdrawals covered by this limitation are those made to another one of your accounts, including a transaction account, at the same institution or to a third party by means of a pre-authorized or automatic transfer, or telephonic agreement, order or instruction, including data transmission. The provisions in the document entitled “Terms & Conditions of Your Deposit Account” that you received when you opened your deposit account are hereby incorporated into this Agreement. You can request another one of these at the time you complete your Online Banking application. If you are an Originator who is not a natural person, a transaction from your account may not exceed the established dollar limit.

Financial Institution’s Liability

If we do not complete a transfer to or from your account on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable, for instance:

1.      If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer.

2.      If you have overdraft privilege and the transfer would go over the limit.

3.      If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood) prevent the transfer, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken.

4.     There may be other exceptions stated in our agreement with you.


We will disclose information to third parties about your account or the transfers you make:

1.     Where it is necessary for completing transfers; or

2.     In order to verify the existence and condition of your account for a third party, such as a credit bureau or merchant; or

3.     In order to comply with government agency or court orders; or

4.     If you give us written permission.
