HomeBank Texas will offer its customers certain Online Banking Services through an internet based program furnished, supported and serviced by an agreement between HomeBank Texas and Jack Henry & Associates, Inc.

Company will inform all such individuals of the confidential nature of the information and the terms and conditions of the Agreement.

Banking Transactions with Online Banking
In addition to viewing account information, you may use Online Banking to conduct the following transactions:
(1) Transfer funds among your checking accounts, savings account, and money market accounts. NOTE: Because regulations require HomeBank Texas to limit preauthorized transfers (including Online Banking transfers), the following limitations apply: (a) Savings Account – You can make no more than one per statement cycle by preauthorized or automatic transfer or by telephone or Online Banking. (b) Money Market Account – You can make no more than six withdrawals per statement cycle by preauthorized or automatic transfer or by telephone or Online Banking and no more than three of these may be by check, draft, or similar order to third parties. (2) New services may be introduced for Online Banking from time to time. HomeBank Texas will notify you of the existence of these new services. By using these services when they become available, you agree to be bound by the rules, which will be made available to you concerning these services.
Your account is considered a new account for the first 30 days after the first deposit is made, unless the owners of the account already have an established account with us before the account in question was opened.
Your PIN will give you access to HomeBank Texas accounts via E-Banking. HomeBank Texas is entitled to act on any instructions it receives using your PIN. For security purposes, it is recommended that you memorize your PIN and do not write it down. We also recommend that you change your PIN regularly to try and avoid misappropriation by a third party. Your PIN can be changed at our Internet Banking site. You are responsible for keeping your PIN and account data confidential. When you give someone your PIN, you are authorizing that person to use your E-Banking and the On-Line Financial Services. You are responsible for all transactions performed using your PIN, even if you did not intend or authorize them. In addition, fraudulent transactions initiated using your PIN will be charged against your account(s).
If you send HomeBank Texas an electronic mail message, HomeBank Texas will be deemed to have received it on the following business day. HomeBank Texas will have a reasonable time to act on your e-mail.
You should not rely on electronic mail if you need to communicate with
HomeBank Texas immediately – for example, if you need to report an unauthorized transaction from one of your accounts or if you need to stop a payment that is scheduled to occur.
You agree that HomeBank Texas may respond to you by electronic mail with regard to any matter related to the Service, including responding to any claim of unauthorized electronic funds transfer that you make. Any such electronic mail sent to you by HomeBank Texas shall be considered received within three (3) days of the date sent by HomeBank Texas, regardless of whether or not you sign on to the Service within that time frame.
Notice of Stop Payment
The Stop Payment feature is designed to submit a request allowing you to stop payment on checks you have written which have not yet cleared your account. There is a fee associated with this service. This service is not available to cancel the payment(s) scheduled through Bill Pay, the bill payment service offered by HomeBank Texas through Online Banking. If you have a problem or need to cancel a scheduled bill pay and are not sure how to handle this, please contact a Customer Service Representative at (972) 287-2030.
Please be advised that a stop payment cannot be submitted online when trying to stop a “Prearranged Monthly Payment” which has been set up with a Company to debit your account automatically. This type of debit is referred to as an “ACH” Debit and requires special handling. Please visit our Customer Service Department for assistance.
A stop payment request will expire and become null and void 6 months from the date received, unless revoked or released prior to that time or unless renewed for an additional period of time. Renewals will be for the same period of time as the original stop payment. An additional fee will be charged for the renewal. Reasonable notification of stop payment must be given to HomeBank Texas prior to the item being presented. Being specific in the “remark” column will assist us in returning the correct item.
Consumer/Company agrees to hold HomeBank Texas harmless and indemnify it against any loss, expense or cost incurred resulting from not being able to act upon the stop payment request due to incorrect or incomplete information.
In addition to this Agreement, you and HomeBank Texas agree to be bound by and comply with the requirements of the agreements applicable to each of your Online Accounts. Your use of the Online Banking service is your acknowledgment that you have received these agreements and intend to be bound by them. You should review other disclosures received by you when you open your accounts at HomeBank Texas. Fees, including but not limited to, stop payments will automatically be deducted from your account when applicable.
Hours of Operation
You can usually access E-Banking seven (7) days a week, twenty four (24) hours a day. However, at certain times, some or all of E-Banking may not be available due to system maintenance or reasons beyond HomeBank Texas's control. HomeBank Texas does not warrant that E-Banking will be available at all times. When unavailable, you may use our 24-Hour Account Information system, an automated teller machine (ATM) or a branch office to conduct your transactions. For purposes of transactions, HomeBank Texas’s business days are Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. All Online Banking transaction requests received after 3:00 p.m. (Central Time) on business days and all transactions, which are requested on Saturdays, Sundays, or holidays on which HomeBank Texas chooses to remain closed, will be processed on the next business day. HomeBank Texas's business day begins at 8:00 a.m.
Bill Payment Service
The Bill Payment service allows you to schedule bill payments through E-Banking. HomeBank Texas does not provide the service directly. Instead, HomeBank Texas has entered into an agreement with a bill payment provider to provide the bill payment services directly to you. Subject to any regulatory or Institution imposed limitations on usage, you can arrange, at your option, for the payment of your current, future and recurring bills from a regular checking account or a money market account (money market transactions are limited by Regulation D to six (6) withdrawals per statement cycle, 3 of which can be checks to third parties). If your checking account is an Economy Account or any account other than a regular checking account, be sure you know and understand the rules that apply to said account. There is no limit for regular checking accounts as to the number of payments that may be authorized and you may pay any merchant or individual approved by the bill payment provider. While payments are initiated by you electronically, they are ultimately paid via an automated clearinghouse (ACH) network or by a paper check. Payments delivered over an ACH network are governed by the rules and performance standards of that network.
Neither HomeBank Texas nor its suppliers will be liable for any transaction if: (1) you do not have enough money in your account to complete the transaction; (2) there is a legal order prohibiting withdrawals from your account; (3) your account is closed or has been frozen; (4) you, or anyone you allow, commits fraud or violates any law or regulation in connection with E-Banking services; (5) any electronic terminal, telecommunication device or part of the electronic fund transfer system is not working properly; (6) you did not provide us with complete and correct payment or transfer information; (7) you did not properly follow the instructions for use of E-Banking services; (8) you knew that E-Banking services were not operating properly at the time you initiated the transaction or payment; (9) there is a postal delay; or (10) circumstances beyond our control (such as a fire, flood or improper transmission or handling by a third party) that prevents, hinders, or delays the transaction.
Links To Other Sites
Information that HomeBank Texas publishes on the World Wide Web may contain links to other sites and third parties may establish links to HomeBank Texas's site. HomeBank Texas makes no representations about any other web site that you may access to, from or through this site. Unless expressly stated in writing, HomeBank Texas does not endorse the products or services offered by any company or person linked to this site nor is HomeBank Texas responsible for any software or the content of any information published on the site of any third party. You should take precautions when downloading files from sites to protect your computer software and data from viruses and other destructive programs.
Virus Protection and Information Security
HomeBank Texas is not responsible for any electronic virus that you may encounter using the on-line services. We encourage you to routinely scan your computer and diskettes using a reliable virus protection product to detect and remove viruses. If undetected and unrepaired, a virus can corrupt and destroy your programs, files and hardware.
Data transferred via HomeBank Texas Online is encrypted in an effort to provide transmission security. However, customer and/or company acknowledges that the Internet is inherently insecure and that all data transfers, including electronic mail, occur openly on the Internet and potentially can be monitored and read by others. HomeBank Texas does not warrant that data transfers will not be monitored or read by others. Therefore, customer and/or company agree to protect the confidentiality of their accounts, account numbers, passwords, and personal identification information such as driver's license number and social security number.
For security purposes, the customer and/or company is required to change the password upon initial login to HomeBank Texas Online. Customer and/or company determines what the new password will be and the identity of that password is not communicated to HomeBank Texas. Therefore, the customer and/or company agree that HomeBank Texas is authorized to act on instructions received under the customer's and/or company's password. The customer and/or company also accepts the responsibility for the confidentiality and security of the password and agrees to change the password regularly or as required by HomeBank Texas. Passwords should not be associated with any commonly known personal identification such as social security numbers, addresses, date of birth, names of children, or other easily identifiable information. The password should be memorized rather than written down.
As added security, your online session will be disconnected if there is no activity for 10 minutes. This is to protect you in case your computer is unattended after you logged on. When you return to your computer, you will be prompted to re-enter your access ID and password and your session will continue where you left off.
Modifications to This Agreement
HomeBank Texas may modify the terms and conditions applicable to either Service from time to time upon mailing or delivering a notice of the modifications to you at the address shown on our account records and the revised terms and conditions shall be effective at the earliest date allowed by applicable law. We may send any notice to you via electronic mail and you will be deemed to have received it three days after it is sent. We reserve the right to terminate this Agreement and your use of the Services in whole or in part at any time without prior notice.

If this occurs, we will credit your account within 10 business days for the amount you think is in error. This will allow you to use the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If your complaint or question is not received in writing within 10 business days, we may not credit your account until the investigation is complete.
If an alleged error involves an electronic funds transfer outside a state or territory or possession of the United States, the applicable time periods for action by us are 20 business days (instead of 10) and 90 calendar days (instead of 45).
If we determine that no error occurred, we will send you a written explanation within three business days after the investigation is complete, and any credit to your account with respect thereto shall be reversed. You may request copies of the documents that were used in the investigation.
You agree that HomeBank Texas may respond to you by electronic mail with regard to any claim of unauthorized electronic funds transfer related to the Service. Any such electronic mail sent to you by HomeBank Texas shall be considered received within three (3) days of the date sent by HomeBank Texas, regardless of whether or not you sign on to the Service within that time frame.
