All bill payments, transfers and other Services will be subject to and will comply with the laws of the United States, including without limitation, any applicable federal and state laws and regulations, such as the Internal Revenue Code, the operating circulars of the Federal Reserve System, and the operating rules of networks, associations and systems, such as the rules of the National Automated Clearing House Association and any regional ACH that we may use from time to time to provide the Services, and any OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control) requirements, each as amended from time to time.
10. Unauthorized Use
If you have reason to believe that your Company Access ID has been stolen or otherwise compromised (or may be compromised) or that a bill payment, funds transfer or other Service has been or may be made with your Company Access ID without your permission, immediately call our Electronic Banking Department at 1-800-246-2009, Ext 5246 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, or write to us at: The Savings Bank, Electronic Banking Department, P.O. Box 30, Wakefield, MA 01880-0030.
All Users at your company should immediately change their passwords. If you have reason to believe that any Administrator ID or password has been lost, stolen or otherwise compromised (or may be compromised) or that a bill payment, funds transfer or other Service has been or may be made with any Administrator without your permission, you must contact your Senior Administrator or any Administrator. Your Senior Administrator or Administrator, as applicable, must deactivate, and has the sole responsibility for deactivating, any such Access ID. In no event will we be liable for any unauthorized transaction that occurs with any Access ID.
Company is solely responsible for the amount of each bill payment, funds transfer, fees or other amounts incurred with the Services, even if you did not authorize the bill payment, funds transfer or other Service. You and Company agree to indemnify us and hold us harmless from and against any and all losses, liabilities, claims, damages or expenses (including attorneys’ fees and court costs and expenses) arising from or related to the access or use of the Services.
12. Confidentiality and Security
The Access IDs identify and authenticate you to us when you access or use the Services. You authorize us to rely on the Access IDs to identify you when you access or use any of the Services, and as signature authorization for any bill payment, funds transfer or other Service. You acknowledge and agree that we are authorized to act on any and all communications or instructions we receive using the Access IDs and that we may attribute to you any and all transactions initiated using the Access IDs, regardless of whether the communications, instructions or transactions are authorized.
You accept as your sole responsibility the selection, use, protection and maintenance of confidentiality of, and access to, the Access IDs. You agree to take reasonable precautions to safeguard the Access IDs and keep them confidential. You agree not to reveal the Access IDs to any unauthorized person. You acknowledge that we will never ask you for the User password, and that our employees do not need the User password for any reason. You further agree to notify us immediately if you believe that the confidentiality of any Company Access ID has been compromised in any manner.
You acknowledge that the Bank provides the option of using Dual Control internally at your organization, and we strongly encourage use of Dual Control. With Dual Control, one Authorized User would “process” (schedule) an ACH, transfer or Wire Transfer transaction, but it would not be considered submitted to the bank until a different Authorized User logs in and “approves” the transaction. You agree to utilize Dual Control whenever circumstances permit.
You and Company are responsible to ensure that computers used for access to the Service are equipped with current virus protection and are updated regularly. We are not responsible for any virus or viruses, electronic or otherwise that you may encounter. An undetected virus may corrupt and destroy your programs, files and hardware. The Bank provides information on its website (www.tsbawake24.com) about how you can protect yourself and your organization from fraudulent access to online accounts. You are responsible for viewing the information we provide, especially the video called “Protecting Your Business”, a production by ©Sage Data Security. The direct link to the video is as follows: http://www.tsbawake24.com/home/tools/education/protect.

You will be deemed to accept any changes to the Services and this Agreement if you access or use any of the Services after the date on which the change becomes effective. You will remain obligated under this Agreement, including without limitation, being obligated to pay all amounts owing under this Agreement, even if we amend this Agreement.
