Required Equipment:
In order to use the Internet Banking Service, you need a computer (in this Agreement, your computer and the related equipment are referred together as your "Computer") with a web browser (either Netscape Navigator 4.0 or higher, Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 or higher), a member number, and Internet Banking PIN.

Broward Bank Of Commerce reserves the right to deny access to a deposit account or loan account or to deny transactions under certain circumstances.
 
Description of Internet Banking:
The Service allows you to perform some or all of the following functions from your Computer:

Online Account Access Functions and Limitations of Transfers:
You may use Internet Banking to (a) transfer funds between eligible accounts; (b) review transactions on eligible accounts; (c) online bill payment; (d) obtain balance information on eligible accounts; (e) make loan payments; (f) advance funds from credit line; (g) view images of checks; and (h) email communications to the customer support group at Broward Bank of Commerce. These features are limited to the extent, and subject to the terms, noted below.

  1. Your ability to transfer funds between certain accounts is limited by federal law and the Deposit Agreement. You should refer to the Deposit Agreement for legal restrictions and service charges applicable for excessive withdrawals or transfers. Transfers made using the Internet Banking Service are counted against the permissible number of transfers described in the Deposit Agreement.
  2. There may be at least a one-business-day delay in transferring funds between your accounts. Except as provided in this Agreement, all Internet Banking transaction instructions received by 4:00 p.m. EST will be completed that business day. Any instruction received after 4:00 p.m. EST will be completed the next business day.
  3. Transactional information for your accounts will be available from Internet Banking for a maximum of three statement cycles from the date of inquiry. 

The Account Alerts service is a tool for managing accounts. However, Account Alerts should not be relied upon solely for account information. Although Broward Bank of Commerce makes every effort to ensure alerts are delivered as expected, there are conditions that may make the alerts unreliable such as, but not limited to: spam filters, relay detectors, inaccurate or obsolete email addresses, network or system failures, etc. Broward Bank of Commerce recommends that the service be tested prior to regular use to identify any limiting conditions that may be present. Broward Bank of Commerce does not guarantee the delivery of any account alert. If you have any questions regarding this service, please contact Broward Bank of Commerce customer service at 954-761-4900.

Personal Identification Number and Security:
Your Internet Banking personal identification number (PIN) is required to access Broward Bank Of Commerce Internet Banking functions. You agree not to give or make available your PIN to any unauthorized individual. If you believe your PIN has been lost or stolen, someone has attempted to use the Internet Banking Service without your consent, your deposit account(s) or loan account(s) have been accessed, or someone has transferred money without your permission, you must notify Broward Bank Of Commerce immediately (954-761-4900). Broward Bank Of Commerce does not maintain a record of your PIN. If you lose or forget your PIN, contact Broward Bank Of Commerce immediately so that you may select a new confidential PIN.

Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfer:
Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your account information and/or PIN have been lost or stolen. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your accounts (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit and open-end credit). If you believe your account information and/or PIN has been lost or stolen, and you tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone used your account information and/or PIN without your permission. If you do NOT tell us within two business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your account information and/or PIN, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your account/and or PIN without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.00. Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within 60 days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 60 days, if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time.

Errors and Questions:
Telephone us as soon as you can if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transfer listed on the statement. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared. Your inquiry must include:

  1. Your name and account number,
  2. A description of the error or the transfer you are unsure about and an explanation of why you believe it is an error or why you need more information,
  3. The dollar amount of the suspected error, and
  4. The date of occurrence.

If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days. We will generally tell you the results of our investigation within 10 business days of the receipt of your complaint or question (20 business days if the transaction involved an account opened within the past 30 days). If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days. If we decide there was no error, we will send you a written explanation within three business days after we finish our investigation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.
