B. Description of Online Services:

1. Transfers and Payments:

As an online customer of Slovenian Savings and Loan, you are permitted to make a transfer of funds from your checking, savings or home equity line of credit to another checking or savings account maintained at Slovenian Savings and Loan.

Transfers can also be made as a payment on your loan originated by us. Payments can be entered as a one time or recurring transaction scheduled to repeat at selected time intervals. Payments or transfers entered on our system before 2:00 P.M. Eastern Time on a business day may be processed on the same business day. Payments after this time may be processed on the next business day.

The completion of a transfer is subject to the availability of funds in your account at the time of final processing. If you do not have sufficient funds available, your attempted transfer will not process.

All transfer requests from your checking or savings account, or your home equity line of credit are reflected in your available balance for that account. Transfers entered before 2:00 P.M. on a business day are processed on that business day. Transfers entered after 2:00 P.M. or on a non-business day may be processed on the next business day.

The amount of transfers are limited to the available balance in the respective transfer account.

Transfers to and from Certificates of Deposit are not permitted and transfers from Christmas Club accounts are not permitted.

2. Online Bill Payments:

Payments you make through Slovenian Savings and Loan online bill payment services are processed by either an electronic funds transfer or a bill payment check.

If a “C” is under the type column it will be paid by check. If there is an “E” in the type column it will be paid electronically. The check option on average will take 10 business days to be processed depending on location and the company processing the payment. Electronic payments, on average, will take 3 business days depending on the company processing the payment.

Electronic funds transfers made by consumers are subject to the provisions of the Electronic Funds Transfer Act which provides a basic framework establishing rights, responsibilities, and liabilities in electronic funds transfer systems. The regulation is referred to as “Regulation E”.

There is no limit on the number of bills you can pay and there is no limitation on the dollar amount of any electronic funds transfers that you make with us, so long as funds are available in the account you are attempting to perform the bill payment out of.

Upon receipt of your request of online bill payment, we are authorized to withdraw the necessary funds from your account on the date you schedule for the payment to be initiated. We are authorized to process your bill payment request and charge your bill payment account even though it does not bear your signature. You agree that you will instruct us to make a withdrawal only when a sufficient account balance is available at the time of withdrawal. In the instance a transfer request is initiated against an account with insufficient funds, the bill payment system will attempt to perform the transaction every day until funds are available to complete the bill payment transaction. If you would not like the transfer to take place even when funds become available, it is your responsibility to delete the bill payment. We are under no obligation to notify you if it does not complete a payment because of insufficient funds. If a bill payment is insufficient and you delete that bill payment prior to funds being disbursed, you are responsible for making alternate arrangements for payment.

Payments may be changed or cancelled online anytime prior to 2:00 P.M. on the business day prior to the day the transaction is scheduled to be initiated. If an electronic bill payment takes place and funds are removed from your account, you cannot stop that bill payment from being transmitted. If a bill payment check is mailed, a stop payment form must be completed at one of our offices as soon as possible to prevent the check from being paid. The standard stop payment fee will apply.

If your statement or passbook shows transfers that you did not make tell us at once. If you do not tell us within 60 days after the statement was mailed to you, or the transfer was recorded in your passbook, 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.

We will determine whether an error occurred within 10 business days after we hear from you and will correct the error promptly. If we need more time, however, for most errors we may take up to 45 days to investigate your complaint or question.
