eStatement Agreement

This agreement (“Agreement”), made between you and FIRST BANK RICHMOND for receiving your deposit account statements online, governs the terms of use of First Bank’s online statement delivery (“the Service”). As used in this Agreement, the words “we,” “our”, “us” and First Bank mean First Bank Richmond, its affiliates, successors and assigns, and the words “you” and “your” mean the account holder who has elected to receive his or her deposit account statements online, using the Service. This Agreement is in addition to other agreements between you and First Bank, including the applicable deposit account agreement(s), terms and conditions and our rules and regulations.  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 First Bank, as they relate to the Service, this Agreement will control. By clicking the “Submit” button and enrolling in the Service, you agree to abide by the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement and acknowledge your receipt and understanding of the disclosures contained in the Agreement. Please read this Agreement carefully and retain a copy for your records. If you click the “Cancel” button, you will not be enrolled in the Service and will not be bound by this Agreement.


You may elect to receive your statement electronically for any Eligible Accounts (defined below), that you choose. Account statements will be delivered to you electronically in Portable Document Format (“PDF”) that you can view online, save to your computer or print at your convenience. Any legal notices that normally accompany your mailed statement will either continue to be mailed under separate cover or delivered to you electronically.  From time to time, we may add to, modify or delete any feature of the Service at our sole discretion. You understand and agree that by enrolling in the Service, you will no longer receive a deposit account statement by mail.


In order to use the Service, you must be a First Bank Digital Banking customer. You must accept the terms of the E-Sign Act in addition to this Agreement to become a registered user of the Service. Any account owner can enroll accounts with joint ownership for the Service. Once enrolled, the account will no longer appear on any account owner’s paper statement. The account statement will be available for viewing to all owners of the account who are enrolled in First Bank Online Banking regardless of which owner enrolled for the Service.


Deposit Account customers that have Checking, Savings and Money Market accounts are eligible for the Service. Each account must be enrolled for the Service on an individual basis. Online statements will be available at the same frequency as your statement that was previously mailed.


Your periodic online statement and accompanying legal notices and disclosures will be presented to you via First Bank Online Banking. Once you enroll in the Service, you and all other account owners will have access within First Bank Online Digital Banking. Your statement will be available for viewing within 5 business days of the account’s statement cycle. All statements are in a format that can be printed or saved to your hard drive for your future reference. If you close an account, you will no longer be able to view your account online. You may request that a copy of your current or a previous statement be mailed to you at your home address. There could be a fee associated with this request. If you currently receive duplicate statements at the same address, mailing of the duplicate copy will be discontinued; however, you can print multiple copies of your statement through the Service. If you currently have statements mailed to an interested party, i.e., a statement mailed to your accountant, mailing of the interested party statement will be discontinued; however, you can forward your statement to your interested party at your own discretion.


You may change your statement delivery method at any time by changing the statement delivery option during your online banking session. If you discontinue the electronic (e-statement) service, you will automatically receive mailed account statements beginning with your next statement cycle. The statements that were previously presented online will not be mailed to you; however, you may order copies of past statements through Customer Support. For deposit accounts only: When you receive your paper statement, please note it may not have all the same accounts that were included prior to enrolling for the Service. Any accounts that were previously combined on your paper statement will have to be re-combined through Customer Support.


Information you provide in connection with the Service will be stored on secure First Bank server(s) and protected by advanced encryption techniques. These security measures are intended to keep this important information under a virtual lock and key so that it may only be used by you; however this security is partly contingent upon your responsible behavior in protecting your Login Name and Password for the Service – please use maximum caution in protecting your Login Name and Password (see “User Responsibilities” below).


    As a First Bank Digital Banking customer, you have chosen a Login Name and Password which also allows you access to the Service.

You agree that you will be the only user of your Login Name and Password, that you will not transfer or disclose any of this information to any other persons, and that you will be responsible for all usage of the Service and any fees associated with use of other services accessed through the Service on your account whether or not authorized by you. You agree to immediately contact us if you know of or suspect any unauthorized use of your login Name and Password. Please use maximum caution in protecting your Login Name and Password from disclosure to anyone else – you may be ultimately responsible for any transactions or actions made by a party accessing the Service by using your Login Name and Password.
