This service is provided to you by Citizens Bank of Americus and powered by a Third Party “Licensor” online and/or mobile banking
technology solution. Section A of these End User Terms is a legal agreement between you and Citizens Bank of Americus. Section B
is a legal agreement between you and the Licensor.
This agreement governs your use of the Citizens Bank of Americus Online Banking services. In this agreement, the word “Service”
refers to consumer and business online banking access. The Service is also subject to:
• the terms or instructions appearing on a screen when enrolling for, activating, accessing, or using the Service;
• Citizens Bank’s rules, procedures and policies, as amended from time to time, that apply to the Service and any Account
that is eligible to be accessed from this Service;
• the then-current rules and regulations of any funds transfer system or payment system used in connection with an Account;
• state and federal laws and regulations, as applicable.
In addition to this Agreement, you may have a separate agreement for each of your Accounts that are eligible to be accessed with
this Service, and those agreements will continue to apply to each of them. If this Agreement conflicts with another agreement, or
another agreement has terms that are not addressed in this Agreement, then the other agreement will control and take precedence,
unless this Agreement specifically states otherwise.
With respect to your Accounts, available transactions may include obtaining balance information, transaction history and other
information. In some instances, balance and transaction history may only reflect activity conducted through the close of the
previous Business Day.
We may occasionally introduce new features to the Service or eliminate features from the Service. When this happens, we will
update our website accordingly.
You agree that you are:
• solely responsible for acquiring and maintaining a computer or any other electronic device and equipment that can handle
and access the Service; and
• responsible for all costs associated with accessing the Service and your Accounts online or through Mobile Banking.
1. If an Account is owned by more than one person or has more than one Authorized Representative or Agent, each such
person individually has the right to provide us with instructions, make any decision, obtain any information or make any
request associated with the Account(s).
2. If you notify us in writing that an Authorized Representative or Agent is no longer authorized to access the Account(s), only
transactions that you did not want or intend and that were performed after you notify us, and we have a reasonable
opportunity to act on the notice, will be considered unauthorized transactions.
3. For Business Customers Only – We may, at our option, permit you to authorize a Delegate to initiate transfers and/or view
transactions between your Accounts online. If you authorize a Delegate to transact business online, you also agree that for
the purposes of these transactions, the Delegate is an authorized signer, subject to the terms and conditions governing your
Account(s). Also, if you make a person an authorized signer on your Account(s), we may in our discretion, automatically
assign View and Transact authority to that authorized signer for online banking use. You are responsible for ensuring that
each Delegate or Authorized Signer maintains confidentiality of his or her username, password, or other login identification.
Waiver of requirement for two or more signatures:
You agree that any requirement of verifying two or more signatures on any item, such as checks, will not apply to electronic or
telephone transfers, and we will have no liability when making these kinds of transfers without the requisite verification. This means
that any person who is an authorized signer on your Account(s) is authorized by you to individually make electronic or telephone
transfers, even though that person’s authority to transfer or withdraw funds from your account by some other means (i.e. by check)
must be exercised jointly with one or more persons. This provision takes precedence over any conflicting account agreements you
have with us.

To access your Account(s) through our website, you must have a username, password, and the required hardware and software as
described in our “Internet Banking Security” located within the Digital Banking section of our website. You must also comply with

that are linked together will appear on your Account Summary page on the website without regard to who else may have an
ownership interest in each Account. However, consumer accounts and business accounts will not be linked unless you own all

transfer cutoff time of 8:00 p.m. EST for regular users and 4:00 p.m. EST for Cash Management users on a Business Day will be
