This agreement is made between you and MWO for accessing your MWO accounts using our web site (www.midwestone.com).  As used in this document, the words, “we”, “our”, and “us” mean MidWestOne Bank and assigns the words “you” and “your” to mean each account holder(s) and anyone else with the authority to deposit, withdraw, or exercise control over the funds in the account(s).  Online Banking Services (Services) means the communications and transactions provided to you by us through the midwestone.com website, including but not limited to the following: account information, funds transfers, bill payments, ACH origination, wire transfers, EFTPS, stop payments, statement/notice/transaction inquiries and downloads.

By using the Services, you agree to abide by the terms and conditions of this agreement and acknowledge your receipt and understanding of the disclosures contained in this agreement.  This agreement is in addition to other agreements between you and us, including the applicable deposit account disclosure agreement(s) and terms and conditions, and our rules and regulations, as well applicable credit card and other loan agreements with us.  If there is a conflict between the terms and conditions of this agreement and the terms and conditions of any other agreements between you and us, this agreement will control.

When you use our Services, you agree to the terms and conditions we have set forth in this agreement and any instructional material, which we provide you regarding the Services.  Your use of the Services may be made by use of certain numbers, codes, marks, signs, public keys or other means of establishing your identity and acceptance of the electronic communications, which are acceptable to MWO.  All electronic communications that meet these requirements will be deemed to be valid and authentic and you intend and agree that those electronic communications will be given the same legal effect as written and signed paper communications.  You agree that electronic copies of communications are valid and you will not contest the validity of the originals or copies, absent proof of altered data or tampering.

You are responsible for, at your expense, obtaining, installing, maintaining and operating all Equipment that accesses the Services.  You must be an authorized user of the Equipment you use.  We do not warrant nor will we be responsible for any errors or failures from the malfunction or failure of your Equipment.

2. Account Access

To access your account(s) through MWO’s Online Cash Manager, you must have at least one eligible deposit or credit account with us.  If you have more than one account or other relationships with us, we will link the relationships together unless you request certain accounts not be linked.  Accounts that are “linked” under the Services must have one common owner.  Any signer, acting alone, must be authorized to access a linked account.  Any non-linked account will not be accessible through the Service.  An account that requires two (2) or more signatures to make withdrawals may not be designated as an eligible account.           

3. Access Codes

A primary owner of the bank account will designate on the Business Online Application the Senior Administrator.  The Senior Administrator may be someone else within the business.  Once the Senior Administrator has established access, he/she will establish subordinate users by creating a separate Access ID and Password authorizing employees individual access to accounts.  The Senior Administrator establishes limitations for each individual user.  The Senior Administrator is the only person who has the authority to create, edit, or delete access or permissions for his/her subordinate users.

During your use of the Services, you are required to enter an/a:

•              Access ID - An Access ID will be assigned to the Senior Administrator upon the opening of your Services. 

•             Password - A valid password consists of 8 - 16 characters.  It must contain at least one number, at least one uppercase letter, and at least one lower case letter.

Use of these Access Codes is the agreed security procedure to access the Services.  You agree to keep these numbers and codes confidential to prevent unauthorized access to your accounts and to prevent unauthorized use of the Services.  For security purposes, we recommend that you do not use the same Access Codes you use on other bank products.  For further security purposes, we recommend that you memorize your MWO Online Cash Manager Password and not write it down.

We reserve the right to require the Company to use security tokens when accessing the Online Cash Manager system.  The company must use the security token provided by us to generate a one-time temporary password to gain access to the Online Cash Manager system.  The Company shall immediately notify us of any lost, stolen, or damaged security tokens and shall return security tokens upon the termination of use of the Online Cash Manager service.

MidWestOne Bank is not responsible for unauthorized use of the Services.
