You agree to protect the confidentiality of your account and account number, and your personal identification information, such as your driver's license number and social security number.

Your User ID and password are intended to provide security against unauthorized access to your e-Statements. Data transferred via Internet Banking is encrypted in an effort to provide transmission security and Internet Banking utilizes identification technology to verify that the sender and receiver of Internet Banking transmissions can be appropriately identified by each other. Notwithstanding our efforts to insure that the Internet Banking and viewing of e-Statements is secure, you acknowledge that the Internet is inherently insecure and that all data transfers, including electronic mail, occur openly on the Internet and potentially can be monitored and read by others. We cannot and do not warrant that all data transfers utilizing BANK Internet Banking, or e-mail transmitted to and from us, will not be monitored or read by others. We also cannot and do not warrant that downloads from this site will not contain a virus or other destructive device.

We reserve the right to require authentication of emails or other electronic communications to verify the authenticity of the communication. If we cannot authenticate a communication to our satisfaction we may not act upon that communication.

It is your sole responsibility to insure your personal computer and related equipment and software are compatible with and capable of operating in a manner that permits you to access and view e-Statements. If you cannot meet the requirements for any reason, you have the right to withdraw your enrollment from E-Statements at no cost to you, and paper statements will be resumed.


You may, at your option, choose to receive your deposit account periodic statements in electronic form ("e-Statements") rather than paper form. Unless you choose the option for electronic statements, you will continue to receive your periodic statements in paper form. If you choose to receive electronic statements, you will also receive other disclosures sent with paper periodic statements in electronic form. These may include, but are not limited to: fee changes for various products and services we offer, changes in interest rates, changes in the terms of your account(s) with us, and/or other changes in your Account Agreements.

ACCESS AND ENROLLMENT: In order to have access to your e-Statements online, you must have a Bank checking or savings account, be enrolled in Internet Banking, and have a valid email address. Use your user ID and password to access your account, and then click on the "Statements" button and follow the prompts to sign up for e-Statements or change your options.

E-MAIL ADDRESS - NOTIFICATION OF STATEMENT AVAILABILITY: You must have a valid email address to enroll in our e-Statement delivery service. We will send you an email notification at the last email address we have of record when your online statement is available. Your e-Statements will remain accessible within Internet Banking for thirteen (13) months, beginning with the first statement after you enroll for e-Statements. You agree to accept responsibility for notifying us if your email address changes. If we send you an email notification and it is returned to us as undeliverable, you will still be able to access your e-Statement from within Internet Banking and should do so until your email address is updated or until we resume sending you paper statements. It will be your responsibility to notify us that you are unable to access your e-Statement. If your email notification is returned to us as undeliverable, and we have not received notice of change of email address from you, your enrollment in the e-Statement delivery service may be discontinued; and, if so, we will send that statement and all future statements to you in paper form at the physical address we have for you on our system. If you choose after that to again receive electronic statements, you will need to re-enroll for electronic statements and have an updated valid email address.

REQUEST FOR PAPER COPIES: Once you have chosen to receive e-Statements, we will no longer send paper statements to you; however, you do have a right to receive your statements in paper form. If you ever have any question about a transaction on your statement, or you otherwise need a paper copy, you may request copies of any statement by calling us at 641-472-4121 or coming in to our Main Bank or any of our Branches during business hours. You may receive one statement hardcopy per calendar year for no charge; additional copies and research will be charged as stated in your original Account Agreement, as amended from time to time.

You also consent to receive these e-Statement disclosures, and any future disclosures, in electronic format by posting on the Bank's website or by email. Future disclosures may include but are not limited to: electronic fund transfers disclosures, changes in hardware / software requirements to use Internet Banking, and changes in fees related to electronic banking.

Or, you may write to us at First National Bank in Fairfield, 100 East Burlington, Fairfield, IA 52556 and request that we send future statements to the physical address we have on our system in paper form.
If your e-Statement cancellation request is received within five (5) business days prior to the end of the statement cycle, your current statement will be sent to you in paper form. If your request is not received within the above timeframe, your current statement may be sent to you electronically, and subsequent statements will be sent to you in paper form.

Please understand that, while we will begin processing this request as soon as it is received, depending on your statement schedule, it may take one or two statements to have your request completed.

Please note that, once you have enrolled in the e-Statement service, if you later choose to withdraw from e-Statements (or if we have begun sending paper statements to you as a result of an incorrect or invalid email address as noted in the "E-Mail Address - Notification of Statement Availability" section above) you will lose all access to the e-Statement service, including your online statement history.


TYPES OF TRANSACTIONS: By enrolling for e-Statements, you will be able to view your periodic statement for your checking or savings account(s) including electronic fund transfers; Bank newsletters, and/or statement inserts which may contain important legal notices that affect you and/or your bank accounts.

CHANGE IN TERMS: We may change any term of this Agreement at any time. If the change would result in increased fees for the e-Statement delivery service or increased liability for you, we will give you notice at least 30 days before the effective date of any such change, unless an immediate change is necessary to maintain the security of an account or our electronic fund transfer system. We will post any required notice of the change in terms on the Bank?s website or forward it to you by e-mail or by postal mail. If advance notice of the change is not required, and disclosure does not jeopardize the security of the account or our electronic fund transfer system, we will notify you of the change in terms within 30 days after the change becomes effective. Your continued use of the e-Statement delivery system indicates your acceptance of the change in terms. We reserve the right to waive, reduce or reverse charges or fees in individual situations. You acknowledge and agree that changes to fees applicable to specific accounts are governed by the applicable deposit agreements and disclosures.

IN CASE OF ERRORS OR QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR ELECTRONIC TRANSFERS, INCLUDING BILL PAYMENTS: In case of Errors or Questions About Your Electronic Transfers, call, write, or e-mail us as soon as you can at the telephone number, address, or e-mail address listed in this Agreement, if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transfer listed on the statement or receipt. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we send the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.

1. Tell us your name and account number.
2. Describe the error or the transfer you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as 
you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.
3. Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error.

If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days. We will determine whether an error occurred within 10 business days (5 business days for CheckCard point-of-sale transactions and 20 business days if the transfer involved a new account) after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days (90 days if the transfer involved a new account, a point-of-sale transaction, or a foreign-initiated transfer) to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days (5 business days for CheckCard point-of-sale transactions and 20 business days if the transfer involved a new account) for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 business days, we may not credit your account. Your account is considered a new account for the first 30 days after the first deposit is made, unless each of you already has an established account with us before this account is opened.

We will tell you the results within three business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that 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.
