Online Banking Access and Entitlement UsersAs the primary user, you are considered the administrator who is responsible for managing your Express Online Banking service. As administrator you will be granted access to all of the enrolled online banking accounts and services. The administrator, at his or her sole discretion, can create and authorize other individuals to act as a user of Express Online Banking by completing an Entitlement Request form. The administrator can add, delete or change the access authorities for a user including the accounts and services they are allowed to access and the dollar amount of the transactions they are allowed to process. Designating an authorized user provides access to Express Online Banking and does not change ownership or provide authorization to these users to transact on your behalf in any other manner (i.e. at a branch location). By granting an individual access to your accounts as an authorized user with a user ID and password you expressly agree to take responsibility for all activity initiated by those individuals. In effect, you have authorized each transaction to take place as though you yourself have completed them and FSB will not be held liable for individual user actions.The administrator and each user that has been afforded the authority to access accounts through Express Online Banking will have a unique user ID and password. Your user ID and password are initially set by you and subsequently can only be changed by you. The user ID designated for an authorized user can be issued and changed only by you, the administrator. The password for an authorized user is initially set by you, the administrator, and subsequently changed by the authorized user at first logon.Generally, you should change your passwords frequently to help safeguard the security of your accounts. You may change your password under the Service Center Profile section. Bank employees will never contact you via e-mail or by telephone requesting your online password or any other personal information. If you are contacted by anyone requesting this information, do not provide it and contact the Express Online Banking Department immediately at 315-592-3159 or 315-592-3120. It is critically important to keep your user IDs and passwords confidential to prevent unauthorized transactions on your bank accounts. In the event that you wish to change authorization (i.e. as a result of personal changes in your relationships, or for any other reasons) it is your sole responsibility to revoke access to protect against improper use of Express Online Banking by the individual(s) you have authorized.If you suspect any misuse of Express Online Banking by an authorized user you, the administrator, should revoke that individual’s access immediately and inform us AT ONCE if you believe your password and user ID have been compromised or may be compromised. You may contact us by calling 315-592-3159 or 315-592-3120 and speak with the Express Online Banking Department.Express Online Banking Department’s hours are:

Complete accuracy is essential since stop payment orders are processed by computers operating on the basis of precise data.

However, if all terms and conditions have been satisfied and we fail to process a stop payment order of a preauthorized transfer from your account, we may be liable.
Stop payment requests, which cover a range of checks that are missing or stolen, may be processed by us without regard to the dollar amount. A stop payment order becomes effective when we confirm its receipt and have verified that the item has not been paid. We will not be able to verify this immediately for items paid more than 180 days prior to your request. Stop payment orders are in effect for six (6) months and can be renewed after the six (6) month period upon your written request. Failure to renew the stop payment order may result in the item being paid. Periodically, our systems may be inoperable. If that occurs, you may transmit stop payment orders by telephone instruction. You are advised that under applicable state law, stopping payment on a check may not relieve you of your obligation to pay the check.
AlertsThis service is designed to provide real time notification of important information related to you FSB account(s) such as a low balance or the occurrence of an overdraft. If you subscribe to our alert service you will be asked to select either email or text messaging (SMS) as a method of delivery. You are responsible for any telephone or data charges incurred in connecting to your ISP that gives you access to this alert service including SMS services.We do our best to provide alerts in a timely manner with accurate information, but alerts may be delayed or prevented by a variety of factors beyond our control such as system failures or misdirected delivery. We don’t guarantee the delivery or accuracy of alerts and the contents of an alert may be outdated by the time the alert is sent or received resulting from other account activity or delays in sending data among various systems. You agree to keep your alert contact methods up to date and accurate and further agree that we are not liable for any delays, failure to deliver, or misdirected delivery of any alert, for any errors in the content of an alert or for any actions taken or not taken by you or a third party as the result of an alert.

Bill PaymentIf you have chosen this option, you may make payments from a checking account(s) that you have designated for bill payment. Your payments will be made either electronically to the person or business you are paying (“payee”) or by sending the payee a paper check.The Bill Payment system will show a “Send On” date and a “Deliver By” date of the payment when you select the calendar. It is advised that you schedule payments in advance to ensure that the “Deliver By” date is on or before the payment due date. While most payees can be paid by using the bill payment feature, we reserve the right to refuse to pay certain payees. You agree that payment transactions executed through an automated clearinghouse will be subject to the rules of the National Automated Clearinghouse Association (NACHA).
“Send On” Date VS. “Deliver By” DateWhen scheduling a bill payment, note the difference between the “Send On” date and the “Deliver By” date; the “Send On” date is the date we will attempt to deduct the payment amount from your designated account. If the attempted deduction fails because you did not have enough funds in your primary account, we will send you an email indicating this situation. If the second attempted deduction is not successful, the transaction will be cancelled and you will be responsible for rescheduling. If the second attempted deduction is successful, the payment will be processed and remitted to the payee, however the “Deliver By” date will be one business day later. If you receive an email because the first attempted deduction was not successful, you should access Express Online Banking to determine the date of the second deduction attempt.If you schedule a payment with the “Send On” date as the current date, you must have adequate available funds in your account at the time the payment is scheduled. The funds will be deducted immediately. If you schedule a payment with the “Send On” date in the future, there must be adequate available funds in your account when we attempt the deduction. This can occur anytime between 12:01 am and 3:00 pm EST of the “Send On” date.The “Deliver By” date is the date that you can expect the payee to receive your payment. The “Deliver By” date for your payment should be no later than the due date the payee has indicated for the payment.
Bill Payment Transaction LimitsExpress Online Bill Pay has a per transaction limit up to $10,000.00 or your available account balance, whichever is less.
Canceling Bill PaymentsWe may cancel a bill payment if we have reasonable belief that the payment is fraudulent. If we cancel a payment, we will attempt to contact you to inform you of this action. You may cancel an outstanding bill payment at any time through Express Online Banking. “Future” and “Recurring” bill payments may be cancelled or changed up until 12:00 midnight of the night before the “Send On” date of the transaction.
Payment GuaranteeIf a properly scheduled payment is not received and posted on time by the payee, we will attempt to have any late fees or assessed finance charges removed. Note that finance charges are calculated based on your payment amount rather than your entire balance. If the payee is unwilling or unable to remove the charges incurred, we will pay the fees and finance charges directly to the payee. In addition, we will attempt to have your account noted appropriately to ensure that the situation does not negatively impact your credit rating.
- The payment was scheduled to be delivered on or before the due date of your bill, excluding any grace periods.
- Exception: Mortgage payments may be scheduled so that the payment is sent on or before the due date, excluding grace periods. For example, a mortgage payment due on July 1st, with a 15 day grace period must have a “Send On” date no later than July 1st.
