Online Security

Introduction to Multifactor Authentication

Due to the exponential increase in phishing attacks, Planters Bank implemented an enhanced online security feature for Internet Banking called Multifactor Authentication. You will get added peace of mind knowing that you are at the authentic Planters Bank website.

If you are a new online banking user, you will be asked to select an image and create a phrase when logging in to your account. Images can be chosen from our library of images. The phrase you enter can be any words you choose, such as "Beautiful Daughter" or "Favorite Vacation Spot." The enrollment process is easy and will take a minute or two. You will only have to do this once. After enrollment, when you login, your image and phrase will be displayed so you'll know immediately that it's safe to enter your login password. To make your login experience even easier, you can "register" your computer with us, so that next time you login from that computer, we will recognize you. We urge you to make sure that you pay special attention and verify that your image and phrase are displayed when you visit our site. If they are not, please do not log in and contact us immediately.

Why Are We Using Multifactor Authentication?

The FDIC requires every bank to implement a risk managed system to further protect customer information. With the growing online, telephone and email security issues including identity theft and phishing, incorporating multifactor authentication is imperative!!

How Does It Work?

Multifactor Authentication is the security application for all of our personal and business Internet Banking accounts. There will be a 'cookie' and small flash object installed on all of your registered computers. These objects will be used to identify your computer as being a known valid computer used to log into your Internet Banking account. When you log into Internet Banking, you will also be able to verify that the site you are on is legitimate and is not a phishing or illegally owned website.

Please contact Planters Bank with any questions at 270.886.9030 or 1.888.806.7036 toll free.

Online Banking Agreement/Disclosure

Review this information and click to accept or decline at the bottom of the page.

This Internet/Online Banking Agreement and Disclosure ("the Agreement") states the terms and conditions governing the use of basic internet/online banking services (“The Service”) offered by Planters Bank. These terms and conditions are in addition to those that apply to any accounts you have with us or any other services you obtain from us. Your initial use of the Service constitutes your acceptance and agreement to abide by and be bound by all the terms and conditions of this Agreement and acknowledges your receipt and understanding of this Agreement.

As used in the Agreement, “Account(s)” means the designated account(s) at Planters Bank from which we process specific transactions on your behalf pursuant to this Agreement. In this Agreement, “you” or “your” refers to the person subscribing to or using the Service; “we”, “us” , “our” or “Bank” refers to Planters Bank and any agent, independent contractor, designee, or assignee Planters Bank may, in its sole discretion, involve in the provision of the Service. All references to time of day in this Agreement refer to the Central Time Zone.

Enrollment

Planters Bank requires you to register for the Service to access your account(s) with the Bank. You may become eligible for the Service by completing and submitting an enrollment form for the Service. The Service allows you to view account information and transfer funds between your accounts with us. You may not designate any account that requires more than one signature for withdrawals. You must be the owner and have legal signing authority on all accounts you are requesting access to. You will be able to view the account history on all accounts for which you have access through the Service for the current and prior statement periods.

Computer Equipment and Browser Access

We shall not be responsible to you for any loss or damages suffered by you as a result of the failure of systems and software used by you to interface with our systems or systems and software utilized by you to initiate or process banking transactions whether such transactions are initiated or processed directly with our systems or through a third party service provider. You acknowledge that you are solely responsible for the adequacy of the systems and software utilized by you to process banking transactions and the ability of such systems and software to do so accurately.

You must access the Service by utilizing an encrypted browser with a minimum 128 bit encryption. You are responsible for obtaining a browser capable of a sufficiently high level of encryption to meet the system requirements as furnished by Planters Bank.

Netscape Users: In Navigator or Communicator, click on the Help menu and select “About Navigator” (or “About Communicator’). Look for the boldface section on the left side of the screen. If it says, “This version supports U.S. security,” you have 128-bit security. If it says, “International Security”, you do not have 128-bit security and will need to upgrade your browser before using online banking.

Microsoft Internet Explorer Users: In Internet Explorer, click the “Help” menu and select “About Internet Explorer.” Look at the “Cipher Strength.” If the Cipher Strength is anything lower than 128-bit, you will need to upgrade your browser before using online banking.

You are additionally responsible for obtaining Internet service via the Internet Service Provider of your choice, for any and all fees imposed by such Internet Service Provider and any associated communications service provider charges. You acknowledge that there are certain security, corruption, transmission error, and access availability risks associated with using open networks such as the Internet and you hereby expressly assume such risks to the extent applicable law allows you to do so. You acknowledge that you have requested the service for your convenience, have made your own independent assessment of the adequacy of the Internet as a delivery mechanism for accessing information and initiating instructions and that you are satisfied with that assessment.

User ID and Password

To access the Service you will be assigned a User ID and a temporary Password. The User ID is permanent and cannot be changed. The temporary Password will allow you initial access to the Service. You will be prompted to change your Password the first time you obtain access to the Service. The Password you choose must be between 8 and 16 characters in length, two of which must be numeric (the Password is case sensitive). You authorize us to follow any instructions entered through the Service using your User ID and Password. Anyone to whom you provide your User ID and password will have full access to your accounts even if you attempt to limit that person’s authority. For your protection, we recommend that you do not use the same User ID for these Services that you use on other bank or non-bank products. You are responsible to protect your User ID and password from unauthorized access. You agree that we are authorized to act on instructions received under your password. You accept responsibility for the confidentiality and security of your password. Upon three (3) unsuccessful attempts to use your password, your access to the Services will be revoked. To re-establish your authorization to use the Services, you must contact us to obtain a new temporary password. Your password should not be associated with any commonly known personal identification, such as social security numbers, address, date of birth, names of children, and should be memorized rather than written down.

YOU AGREE NOT TO ALLOW ANYONE TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE SERVICES OR TO LET ANYONE KNOW YOUR USER ID AND PASSWORD USED WITH THE SERVICES. YOU AGREE TO ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR ALL TRANSACTIONS INITIATED THROUGH THE SERVICE WITH YOUR USER ID AND PASSWORD, UP TO THE LIMITS ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

You agree to notify the Bank immediately if you believe that your password has become known to any unauthorized person. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You may be required to sign an affidavit if you assert that an unauthorized transfer or payment may have occurred. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum overdraft limit) if you fail to us that your password has become known to an unauthorized person. If you tell us within two (2) business days after you discover that your password has been lost or stolen, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone used your password without your permission. If you do not tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your password and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your password without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.00.

Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, tell us at once. You may be required to provide your complaint in the form of an affidavit. If you do not tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money 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.

If you believe your password has become known by an unauthorized person, or that someone has transferred money or made payments without your permission, you will immediately call:

Planters Bank Customer Service at 270-886-9030 or 888-806-7036

And write to:

Planters Bank Inc.
Attention: Planters Online Banking
PO Box 1570
Hopkinsville, KY 42241-1570

Do Not include your password in any correspondence.

Security

You will be required to change your password every six (6) months. The system will automatically sign you off after fifteen (15) minutes of inactivity. Each time you sign on the system, you are limited to a ninety (90) minute session. The system will allow you three (3) attempts to correctly sign on, after which you will be locked out and it will be necessary to contact the financial institution for re-activation.

Liability for Failure of Bank to Complete Transactions

We will process and complete all transactions (to and from eligible accounts) properly initiated through the Service in accordance with the online instructions provided within the Service and the terms of the Agreement. If we do not complete a transaction to or from your account on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will NOT be liable for instance:

You hereby release the Bank from any liability and agree not to make any claim or bring any action against us for honoring or allowing any actions or transactions where you have authorized the person performing the action or transaction to use your account(s) and/or you have given your Password to such a person, or, in the case of a jointly held account such person is one of the owners of the account. You agree to indemnify the Bank and hold it harmless from and against any and all liability (including but not limited to reasonable attorney fees) arising from any such claims or actions.

Notice of Your Rights and Liabilities

In case of errors or questions about electronic transactions made through the Service, you should:

  1. Telephone Planters Bank Customer Service at 270-886-9030 or 888-806-7036; and
  2. Write us at Planters Bank, 1312 S. Main St., Hopkinsville, KY 42241-1570 as soon as you can; or,

We must hear from you no later than sixty (60) days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.

When submitting an error complaint or question you must:

  1. Tell your name, account number.
  2. Describe the error or transaction you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need additional information
  3. Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error.

If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) business days.

We will determine whether an error occurred within ten (10) business days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to forty-five (45) days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account (provisional credit) within ten (10) business days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and do not receive it within ten (10) business days, we may not re-credit your account.

If a notice of error involves an electronic fund transfer that occurred within thirty (30) days after the first deposit to the account was made, the error involves a new account. For errors involving new accounts, point of sale debit card transactions, or foreign-initiated transactions, we may take up to ninety (90) days to investigate your complaint or question. For new accounts, we may take up to twenty (20) business days to credit your account for the amount you think is in error.

We will tell you the results within three (3) business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation. Also, any provisional credit that was applied to your account will be charged back to your account.

If you believe an error other than an electronic funds transfer problem from use of the Service has occurred concerning your deposit account(s), you will refer to your monthly statement for instructions regarding how to resolve your questions or have any error(s) corrected.

Account Transfers

When you instruct the Bank to transfer funds between your Planters Bank accounts through the Service, you authorize us to withdraw the necessary funds from the designated account. You agree that you will instruct the Bank to make a withdrawal only when a sufficient balance is available in the designated account at the time of processing the withdrawal. The Bank will not be obligated to act on any withdrawal instructions from you if sufficient funds are not available in the account designated.

You understand that under Federal Reserve Board Regulation D, depositors are permitted to make no more than six (6) transfers or withdrawals from a savings or money market account per month (not counting ATM and in person transactions). All transfers initiated through the Service are counted toward the six (6) total permitted transfers or withdrawals. If your transactions exceed the legal limit, you will be charged a fee for each such transaction in excess of the legal limit, which fee is currently $10.00 for each excessive transaction but is subject to change from time to time. If you exceed the restrictions more than three times, the Bank will close the savings or money market account and transfer the funds to a checking account with unlimited transaction privileges. Further explanation of these restrictions is available from the Bank.

Although you receive immediate provisional credit upon completion of transfers made through the Service, we must receive your request for such transfers before 5:00 p.m. on a business day for those funds to be posted on that day. Transfers requests which are received after 5:00 p.m. on any business day, or on a weekend or holiday, will be posted the next business day.

You are responsible for any and all telephone access fees and/or Internet Service fees that may be accessed by your telephone and/or Internet Service provider.

Transaction Fees – If the deposit account from which transfers are made is charged a per-item fee for excess debit transactions, such as Money Market Accounts, a fee will be charged for each payment or transfer in excess of the specified limit. The amount of this fee or any other additional fee, and the specific account type(s) that pertain to this fee or any other type of additional fee are set forth in the Bank’s “Your Deposit Account” disclosure containing information regarding: Terms and Conditions, Electronic Transfers, Funds Availability and Truth In Savings.

Important Information About Procedures For Opening Or Changing An Account With Planters Bank

Section 326 of the USA PATRIOT ACT requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account or changes an existing account. This federal requirement applies to all new customers and current customers. This information is used to assist the United States government in the fight against the funding of terrorism and money-laundering activities.

What this means to you: when you open an account or change an existing account, we will ask each person for their name, physical address, mailing address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify them. We will ask to see each person’s driver’s license and other identifying documents and copy or record information from each of them.
