II. Overview of Service

The Service provides you the ability to make deposits to your designated eligible accounts with us (each an "Account") through our Internet Web site, cnb.com. The Service is designed to take advantage of The Check Clearing for the 21st Century Act and its regulations (collectively "Check 21"). The Service enables you to convert original paper checks ("Original Checks") that are drawn on or payable through United States financial institutions into digitalized images (each a "Check Image") and to electronically submit the Check Image to us for deposit into an Account for collection thereafter by us. A Check Image submitted to us electronically for deposit is not deemed received until we accept and confirm receipt of your Check Image deposit.

A. Access to the FASTdeposit Service
To access the Service you must have or acquire and maintain a personal computer and a flatbed scanner or equivalent that meets the specifications provided by us.

B. Deposit Limits
You may scan and submit Check Images for deposit to us within the dollar limits ("Deposit Limits") we provide you at the time of enrollment. We reserve the right to limit the frequency and dollar amount of deposits submitted through the Service. If you exceed the Deposit Limits we provide to you, we may in our sole discretion accept or refuse the Check Image deposit. If at any time we accept a Check Image deposit that exceeds your Dollar Limits, we will have no obligation to do so in the future. We may at any time at our sole discretion raise or lower your Deposit Limits.

C. Designated Eligible Accounts
By requesting access to the Service, you authorize CNB to provide you with access to all of the eligible accounts you designate to participate in the Service. The following account types are currently eligible for the Service: checking, savings, and money market accounts.

D. Account Requirements and Restrictions
In order to use the Service you must first enroll a personal or business checking account of yours with us as your primary FASTdeposit Service Account ("Primary Account"). All related service fees will be deducted from your Primary Account even if you have other accounts with us us ng the Service.

Certain trust accounts, such as individual and family trusts established pursuant to a formal written trust agreement, Totten Trusts, and Uniform Transfers to Minors Act accounts, are eligible to enroll for the Service as long as the person enrolling is the Trustee or Custodian.

An account owner may enroll any eligible account for the Service and provide access to the owner's agent under a power of attorney. The agent may not enroll an account for the Service. The account owner must notify us to remove the agent's access to the Service and notify us if the relationship of the agent to the account changes.

E. Username and Password
During the enrollment process, you will select your own username and we will provide you with a temporary password that you will be required to change the first time you sign on to the Service. We may provide you with your temporary password by mail or e-mail.

You are responsible for the security and use of your username and password. You (and each agent you authorize for access) shall keep your username and password secure and confidential. If you choose to disclose your username and password to another individual, are authorizing that person to do anything that you can do with the Service at any time. We will not be liable for any use of the Service by an individual who is provided access to the Service by you whether the use is within the scope of your intended authorization or not. Only you may receive support for username and password changes or sign on issues.

Use the following guidelines to create your username:
  • Use 6 to 36 characters.
  • Use at least two letters and two numbers.
  • Periods, commas, dashes, spaces and other symbols are not allowed.
  • The characters are case sensitive, so capitalization matters.

F. Receipt of Check Image Deposits and Cutoff Times
Scanning and submitting Check Image deposits does not constitute receipt of the deposit by us. Generally, Check Image deposits received prior to 7:00 p.m., Pacific Time are processed on the Business Day of receipt. Any Check Image deposit received after this time or on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays when we are closed will be processed on our next Business Day. Acknowledgment that your Check Image deposit has been received by us does not mean that the Check Image deposit was received error free.

G. Check Image Deposit Submission Confirmation and Approval Notification
We will send you an e-mail to confirm our receipt of your Check Image deposit. We will send a notice to you if your Check Image deposit is rejected in whole or in part. You may verify receipt and the amount of your Check Image deposit credited to your account by reviewing your statement online or by calling our telephone banking number.

IV. Your Obligations

You acknowledge and agree that even if we do not identify a Check Image as ineligible, the Check Image may be returned to us because, among other reasons, the Check Image or any Substitute Check created from the Check Image is deemed ineligible by the financial institution upon which it is drawn or any intermediate collecting financial institution.

C. Our Security Commitment
We are committed to provide you safe and secure online banking services. We are confident that our internal security infrastructure, requiring at least 128-bit domestic grade encryption, provides privacy and security to your account and transaction information.

D. Your Security Role to Protect Yourself
Your role in security is as important as ours. Here are some requirements you should remember to maintain the privacy and security of the Service:

  • You are responsible for the security and use of your username and password. Try not to select a password that is easily guessed (e.g., birth date or spouse name). Do not share your password with anyone or write down so that it may be seen by others. If you think your password has been compromised, change it immediately online. You should then verify that no unauthorized transactions occurred on your account.
  • Do not leave your computer unattended if you are still signed onto the Service.
  • When you have completed your transactions, always remember to click "SIGN OFF" before visiting other Internet Web sites.
  • If others use your computer, clear your cache (the block of memory used for the temporary storage of data likely to be used again) or turn off and restart your browser in order to eliminate copies of Web pages that have been stored in your hard drive. See your browser's HELP section for instructions on how to clear cache.
  • We require that all browsers accessing the Service have at least 128-bit domestic grade encryption to conduct secure financial transactions over the Internet.
  • Install and regularly update virus protection software.

E. The Browser

When using your browser to access the Service, the browser uses encryption technology that scrambles data to make it readable by the sender and designated receiver only. A key is required to decode the information.

When you submit deposits to your accounts, the encrypted (scrambled) request is sent to us or our third party service provider. We send our replies back to you in an encrypted (scrambled) format. Even though the information sent back and forth is encrypted, you will be able to read the data on your computer screen.

You are required to use a browser with at least 128-bit encryption to use the Services.

If you need to upgrade your browser, follow the simple instructions on how to do this located in the browser's HELP menu.

You can check to see what level of security your browser has within the browser HELP menu. For Microsoft Internet Explorer, go to "Help" and then "About Internet Explorer." The version with Cipher (security) Strength should be listed.

We review and approve the use of different browsers to ensure they meet our security standards.

In addition to the required browser encryption, usernames or customer IDs and passwords or PINs are used as another feature to help ensure that your transactions on the Internet are safe and secure. When you sign in to the Service, we authenticate you by your username/customer ID and password/PIN. This information is known only by you and it is up to you to keep this information secure. If you think that your information has been compromised: 1) Change your password or PIN immediately; 2) call us at 1-800-486-8167, and 3) check your account history for any unauthorized transactions.

Our firewall protects our systems by allowing entry only to those who are authorized.

For digital identity verification, we have a digital server certificate by VeriSign that your browser uses each time you sign on to verify that you are connected to us.
