In this agreement, the words "we", "us" or "our" mean BANK VI as appropriate and their successors or assigns. When we use the words, "you" or "your" we mean each person who has an interest in an account or other relationship, which is accessible through the BANK VI Online Services and any person authorized such access.

Your use of the services may be made by use of certain numbers, codes, marks, signs, public keys or other means of establishing your identity and acceptance of the electronic communications which are acceptable to us. All electronic communications that meet these requirements will be deemed to be valid and authentic and you intend and agree that electronic communications will be given the same legal effect as written and signed paper communications.

Once you are an enrolled user of the services, you may be charged the applicable monthly fee and/or usage fee whether or not you use the services (please see the Online Fee Schedule).

You should notify us immediately at 785 825-4321 or write to: BANK VI Online Services, P.O. Box 77, Salina, Kansas 67402-0077, if you believe any of your accounts have been accessed or your access codes have been taken or used without your permission.

To the extent a transaction is an electronic funds transfer, you can lose no more than $50 if you notify us within four (4) business days of discovering any unauthorized use of the services or your Access Codes. However, you can lose as much as $500 if you do not notify us within four (4) business days of discovering the unauthorized use and we can prove that we could have stopped the unauthorized use had we been notified.
If you do not report unauthorized transactions that appear on any of your periodic statements within 60 days after such statements are mailed, you risk unlimited losses on transactions made after the 60 day period if we can prove that we could have prevented the unauthorized use had we been notified within this 60 day period. If a good reason (e.g. a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from letting us know, we will extend the time periods.

We, or a third party acting as our agent, are responsible for completing fund transfers and bill payments from your account(s) on time and according to your properly entered and transmitted instruction. 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 and damage.
