Internet Banking Access ID and Password

To initially access Commercial State Bank Internet Banking you will use an Access ID and Password that our bank assigns to you. The first time you log in you will be required to change your Access ID and Password. Online instructions will explain Access ID and Password requirements. You will be able to change your password at any time if you feel security has been breached. You agree to keep your Commercial State Bank Internet Banking Access ID and Password confidential to prevent unauthorized access to your accounts and to prevent unauthorized use. For security purposes, we recommend you memorize your Access ID and Password. If you choose to write it down, store it in a secure place. If you violate this agreement and purposely disclose your Access ID and Password to allow others to access your accounts, you are fully responsible for any transactions they make on your accounts.

If you believe your password is lost or has been acquired by an unauthorized person, report it at once to Commercial State Bank at (605) 384-3646 or toll free at 1-800-669-4060. We reserve the right to block your access to Commercial State Bank Internet Banking services to maintain or restore security to our web site and systems, if we believe your password has been or may be obtained, is being used or may be used by an unauthorized person(s).

Duplicate Transactions

It is the customer’s responsibility to detect duplicate transactions. Commercial State Bank will pay all transactions initiated online by the customer unless there are insufficient funds or uncollected funds.


If a hold has been placed on deposits made to an account from which you want to transfer funds, you cannot transfer the portion of the funds held until the hold expires.

You agree that you will instruct us to make a transfer only when a sufficient balance is or will be available in the designated account at the time of the transfer. You understand that we will not act on any transfer instruction from you if sufficient funds are not available in the account that you designated.

Your ability to make transfers from your savings accounts and money market accounts is restricted by Federal Reserve Board Regulation D. For each savings or money market account, the following limitations apply: You may make six (6) transfers from your account each four (4) week or similar period, if by preauthorized or automatic transfer, or telephone (including data transmission) agreement, order or instruction. Three (3) of these transfers may be made by check, draft, debit card or similar order (including POS transactions), made by the depositor and payable to third parties. Transfers and withdrawals made in person, by messenger, by mail or at an ATM are unlimited. Once a savings account or money market account has violated the Regulation D limits, Commercial State Bank will notify you of the violation and may require you to convert the account to a transaction type account.

Failure to Make Transfers

If we do not complete a transfer 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:

  •  If, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer

  •  If the money in your account is subject to legal process or other claim restricting such transfer

  •  If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood) prevent the transaction, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken.

Periodic Statements

You will receive a monthly account statement from us for your Checking and Money Market accounts, unless the accounts show no activity in which case you will receive a statement quarterly. You will receive a quarterly account statement from us for your Savings account. These printed statements will detail your Internet Banking activities.

Stop Payment of Preauthorized Payments

If you have told us in advance to make regular electronic fund transfers out of your account(s), you can stop any of these payments. Here is how: Call us at (605) 384-3646 or toll free at 1-800-669-4060 or write our bank at 204 S. Main Ave, P.O.

  •  Tell us your name and account number, if any. (Do not send your account number by e-mail.)

  •  Describe the error or the transfer you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.
