Online Banking Agreement
The first time you access your accounts through Online Banking, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Online Banking Agreement ("Agreement") and acknowledge its receipt and your understanding of its terms.
This Agreement explains the terms and conditions for accessing accounts and conducting transactions at Ohana Pacific Bank (“Institution”, “we”, “us” and “our”) via our on-line Online Banking site(s) ("Online Banking"). As used in this Agreement, the terms "you" and "your" refer to each person signing an Online Banking Application.
Benefits of Online Banking
Through Online Banking, you can manage eligible accounts from your home or office on a personal computer. Online Banking can be used to conduct any of the following “On-line Financial Services”:
Obtain balances and transaction histories on all eligible accounts enrolled in Online Banking (All account balances and transaction histories reflect activity through the close of the previous banking day).
Transfer money between eligible accounts; (The number of transfers you can make from an account is limited as described in the applicable account agreement. There are no limitations on dollar amounts of transfers. You may transfer up to your available account balance. In addition, if a hold is placed on any funds deposited in an eligible account, you may not transfer the portion of funds being held until that hold expires); transfer money to pay Institution for overdraft protection, consumer loans, home equity loans, or certain other eligible loans; request a withdrawal from your approved credit line; and pay bills to any merchant, financial institution or an individual with a U.S. address. Besides transfers, you may also make stop payment requests, order new checks and obtain copies of statements.

Your password will give you access to Institution accounts via Online Banking. Institution is entitled to act on any instructions it receives using your password. For security purposes, it is recommended that you memorize your password and do not write it down. We also recommend that you change your password regularly to try and avoid misappropriation by a third party. Your password can be changed at our Online Banking site. You are responsible for keeping your password and account data confidential. When you give someone your password, you are authorizing that person to use Online Banking and the On-line Financial Services. You are responsible for all transactions performed using your password, even if you did not intend or authorize them. In addition, fraudulent transactions initiated using your password will be charged against your account(s).
You can usually access On-line Financial Services seven (7) days a week, twenty-four (24) hours a day. However, at certain times, some or all of Online Banking or On-line Financial Services may not be available due to system maintenance or reasons beyond Institution's control. Institution does not warrant that Online Banking or On-line Financial Services will be available at all times. When unavailable, you may use an automated teller machine (“ATM”) or call our call office to conduct your transactions. An On-line Financial Service transaction initiated prior to 5PM on a banking day is posted to your account the same day. All transfers completed after 5 PM, or on a non-banking day, will be posted the following banking day. You can call us at 808-237-6551 if you feel a transaction was posted incorrectly.
You will get a periodic account statement as described in the applicable account agreement.
Fees and Charges
There is currently no monthly service charge for the use of On-Line Financial Services described in this agreement.
Transfers online from a money market or savings account are limited to a maximum of six (6) preauthorized withdrawals or transfers per month, or statement cycle, to another account or third party; no more than three (3) of the six (6) may be made by check, draft, debit card, or similar order made by the depositor and payable to third parties. Excessive activity fees may apply per excess transfers if the limits as stated above are exceeded, and may result in account closure. Please see our fee schedule for details.
If you have told us in advance to make regular payments out of your account, you can stop any of these payments. You may request the stop payment online, or call us at 808-237-6551, or write us at 1357 Kapiolani Blvd. #102, Honolulu, HI 96814 in time for us to receive your request 3 business days or more before the payment is scheduled to be made. If you call, we may also require you to put your request in writing and get it to us within 14 days after you call. A fee may apply for stop payment orders. If you order us to stop one of these payments 3 business days or more before the transfer is scheduled, and we do not do so, we will be liable for your losses or damages.
You may not appropriate any information or material that violates any copyright, trademark or other proprietary or intellectual property rights of any person or entity while using the Online Banking or On-line Financial Services. You may not gain, or attempt to gain, access to any Online Banking and/or On-line Financial Service server, network or data not specifically permitted to you by Institution or its suppliers, and you must not include any obscene, libelous, scandalous or defamatory content in any communications with Institution or its suppliers.
Accessing the Service
When you complete your internet banking enrollment, you will be given an opportunity to choose a User I.D. and Password. You will use the User ID and password to access Internet Banking.
Each time you access the Service, you will be asked to enter your User ID and Password. The correct responses will give you access to the Service.
You are solely responsible for controlling the safekeeping of, and access to, your password. You are liable for all transactions you make or that you authorize another person to make even if that person exceeds his or her authority. If you want to terminate another person's authority, you must notify the Financial Institution and arrange to change your password. The Financial Institution is not responsible for your acts or omissions or those of any other person, including, without limitation, any transmission or communications facility, and no such party shall be deemed to be the Financial Institution's agent. In any event, the Financial Institution will not be liable for any special, consequential, incidental, or punitive losses, damages, or expenses in connection with this Agreement or the Service, even if the Financial Institution has knowledge of the possibility of them. The Financial Institution is not liable for transfers requested but not completed under the following circumstances: 1) If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer, 2) If the transfer would go over the credit limit on your overdraft line, 3) If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire, flood or interference from an outside force) prevent the transfer, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken. There may be other exceptions stated in our agreement with you.
If state law or an agreement between the consumer and the financial institution imposes less liability than is provided by this section, the consumer's liability shall not exceed the amount imposed under the state law or agreement.
Amendment and Termination
The Financial Institution has the right to change this Agreement at any time by notice mailed to you at the last address shown for the Account on the Financial Institution's records, by posting notice in branches of the Financial Institution, or as otherwise permitted by law.
The Financial Institution has the right to terminate this Agreement at any time. You may terminate this Agreement by written notice to the Financial Institution. The Financial Institution is not responsible for any fixed payment made before the Financial Institution has a reasonable opportunity to act on your termination notice. You remain obligated for any payments made by the Financial Institution on your behalf.
The Financial Institution reserves the right to charge you for research time involving payments no longer available in your screen history. You will be informed of any such charges before they are incurred.
Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your password has been compromised, or if you believe that an electronic funds transfer has been made without your permission. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit). If you tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft or your code you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your code without your permission.
If you do NOT tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your code, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your code without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.
Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, including those made through online banking, 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. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.
If you believe your pass code has been compromised, call 808-237-6551 or write: Online Banking Administrator, Ohana Pacific Bank, 1357 Kapiolani Blvd. #102, Honolulu, HI 96814
You should also call the number or write to the address listed above if you believe an entry into your account has been made without your permission. For purposes of these disclosures, our business days are Monday thru Friday (not including holidays), and notice to the Bank is considered given when you take steps reasonably necessary to provide Ohana Pacific Bank with the pertinent information. Notice may be considered constructively given when the institution becomes aware of circumstances leading to the reasonable belief that an unauthorized transfer to or from the consumer's account has been or may be made.
In Case of Errors or Questions about Online Banking, telephone us at 808-237-6551 or write us at 1357 Kapiolani Blvd. #102, Honolulu, HI 96814 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you can, if you think your account information is wrong or if you need more information about a transfer shown on the screen. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.
- Tell us your name and account number (if any),
- 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,
- 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 after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes us 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.
For errors involving new accounts, point-of-sale, or foreign-initiated transactions, we may take up to 90 days to investigate your complaint or question. For new accounts, we may take up to 20 business days to credit your account for the amount you think is in error.
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.
Electronic Mail (E-mail)
Sending E-mail is a very good way to communicate with Institution regarding your accounts or the On-line Financial Services. However, your e-mail is actually sent via your own software and, as a result, is not secure. Because of this, you should not include confidential information, such as account numbers and balances in any e-mail to Institution. You cannot use e-mail to initiate On-line Financial Service transactions. All such transactions must be initiated using the appropriate functions within the Online Banking site. Institution will not be liable for any errors, omissions, claims, or problems of any kind involving your e-mail.
Disclosure of Information
We will disclose information to third parties about your account or the payments or transfers you make where it is necessary for completing payments or transfers, or in order to verify the existence and condition of your account for a third party, such as a credit bureau or merchant, or in order to comply with government agency or court orders, or if you give us your written permission.
