Protecting Your Account
Notify us at once if you believe another person has improperly obtained your Internet Account Access Password. Also notify us if someone has transferred or you think someone may transfer money from your account without your permission, or if you suspect any fraudulent activity on your account. To notify us, call Willamette Community Bank at 1-541-926-9000 or write Willamette Community Bank, 333 Lyon Street SE, Albany OR 97321, Attention: Online Banking Department.
For Consumer Accounts: If you suspect someone has used your Internet Password without your permission to access a Willamette Community Bank deposit account and you tell us within two (2) bank business days after learning of the loss or theft, you can lose no more than $50. If you do NOT tell us within two (2) bank business days after you learn of the loss or theft, and we could have stopped someone from taking money without your permission had you told us, you could lose as much as $500 or more of the disputed amount.
If your monthly statement shows withdrawals, transfers, or purchases that you did not make or authorize, you must notify us at once. If you do not notify us within sixty (60) days after the account transaction detail information was transmitted or mailed to you, and we could have stopped someone from taking money if you had told us in time, you may not get back any money lost after the sixty (60) days. If there are extenuating circumstances that kept you from telling us, the time periods in this section may be extended.
Preventing Misuse – It is extremely important that you take an active role in the prevention of any wrongful use of your account. If you find that your records do not agree with ours, you must immediately call Willamette Community Bank at 1-541-926-9000.
Protect Your Internet Password – The password that is used to gain access to the Internet Account Access Services should be kept confidential at all times. For your protection we recommend that you change your Internet Password regularly. It is recommended that you memorize this Password and do not write it down. You are responsible for keeping your Password, account numbers, and other account data confidential. If you believe that your Password may have been lost or stolen, or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, notify Willamette Community Bank at once.
Accessing Your Willamette Community Bank Accounts
Requirement – To access your account(s) through the Internet, you must have an eligible Willamette Community Bank account, enroll in the Internet Account Access Service, and have an Internet Password. In addition, you must have the required Internet secure browser software as defined by the Bank.
Fees – There are currently no monthly or transaction fees for accessing your account(s) through the Internet. However, fees, as described in the applicable Product or Account Disclosure or Schedule of Selected Service Fees, may apply to services ordered online and to transfers from a credit account. Please note that your Internet service provider may assess fees.
Online Statement Delivery Service – When you enroll in online delivery of deposit, loan or line of credit statements for your Activated Accounts, you will receive these official account statements online, together with an email alert notice advising you when the statement is available for viewing, subject to our “Federal E-Sign Act Disclosure and Consent”.
Online Bill Pay Service – When you enroll in the Online Banking Service, and if you have an eligible checking account with us, you will be automatically enrolled in Online Bill Pay, our bill payment service. Online Bill Pay allows you to make payments in United States Dollars from your selected checking account (a “Payment Account”). You can only make payments to Payees with U.S.A. addresses. A “Payee” is a person or business you are paying. When using Online Bill Pay you must send your payment instructions to us at least five (5) business days before the “Due Date” for payments sent by check. It is your responsibility to schedule your payments in such a manner that payments are paid on time. Recurring payments must be the same amount each time. Any payment request you designate for a weekend or holiday will be made on the previous business day. You may change or cancel any requested payment you have scheduled in advance in accordance with this Agreement if you send your change or cancellation instructions via your Internet access equipment to us before the Cutoff Time on the Payment Transmittal Date for the applicable payment. Your changes or cancellation will not be accepted or processed by us after the applicable Cutoff Time. Cancellation of a requested payment is not a stop payment order, and there is no service charge for your change or cancellation. If there are insufficient funds in your payment account to make a payment you have authorized, we may either; refuse to make the payment; make the payment and transfer funds from an overdraft protection account you have established; or make the transfer or payment that may result in an overdraft on your account.

By continuing to use the accounts or services to which these changes relate, you are accepting the changes.
